Reece currently has a 5.8 weighted grade point average (GPA), putting him on pace to be the Gaither salutatorian. His grandmother Nell instilled in him a thirst for knowledge, which endures to this day. “My mom (Jaclin) would be working, so my grandmother taught me how to read and about math,” Reece said. “I knew my times tables at the age of 5 because of her. She gave me that extra push to get started. Now it just comes natural, and when I’m engaged in a class I want to do the work.” Reece is also thankful for the free education offered in the United States. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica, a country where people have to pay $500$600 a year just to attend basic schooling. Throw in money for uniforms and books, and most people on the island nation are not financially able to get a high school equivalent diploma. “I know that it’s a blessing to have free schooling here through high school, and if you excel enough they will pay you to go to college,” Reece said. “It’s not like that in Jamaica or basically everywhere else, so I want to jump on that and take advantage of the education here.” Reece came to the United States around age 4. HeThe leader of the pack Mikhail Reece is not only a leader in academics at Gaither, but is also one of the team captains on the Cowboys football team.

HART spokeswoman Marcia Mejia said 12.5 million passengers have ridden on the agency’s buses during the current fiscal year, already besting the previous record of 12.3 million set in 2010. HART’s fiscal year ends on Sept. 30. “This year, more people are recognizing the value of public transit,” Mejia said. “We appreciate the trust our new and long-time customers have demonstrated by getting onboard in such record numbers.” Ridership in August rose 11 percent compared to the same month last year despite HART cutting back some routes because of budget reductions. Despite those small cuts, Mejia said the agency has made several large capital improvements, as well as subtle changes to produce a better product. “For instance, about every four months HART updates its route schedule to ensure transit service matches current and projected ridership demands,” Mejia said. Mejia then added, “There is now one shelter for every seven bus stops, compared to one in 15 just a few years ago. Moreover, in August 2011 the HART board approved a contract for 41 new shelters throughout Hillsborough County over the next two years. With inclement weather conditions endured by this area, shelters are extremely important to protecting customers from the elements, and makes public transit easier and more convenient to use.” HART also has changed its farecard program, where people buy passes good for a month of bus fare. Previously, the cards expired at the end of a month regardless of when it was bought, but now they are good for 31 days. Mejia said the agency has several plans to improve service during the next few years to account for the record number of riders. One is MetroRapid North-South, which is designed to quickly take large numbers of people from areas around The HART 20x pulls away from the bus stop after dropping riders off at the First Baptist Church of Lutz. HART has already set a new record for ridership this year.

The job will add a bridge to allow drivers to pass over the interstate, allowing residents of Tampa Palms and the surrounding neighborhoods to reach either Freedom High school without using Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. The project is funded by the Tampa City Council and is being performed by Prince Contracting. Jim Hudock, contract administrator for the city council, said the job has been in the works for several years. “The city council has wanted to build this bridge for years to take people off Bruce B. Downs, which is heavily congested,” Hudock said. “It will also save New Tampa residents time if they are getting around the area.” Hudock said there had been fighting for years by the several neighborhood groups that opposed the bridge because “they believed it would make the roadways more dangerous with the increase in traffic.” Tampa Palms attorney Warren Dixon even sued the city to stop the project, but he no longer opposes it. He dropped the suit after getting assurances safety measures,New I-75 bridge progressingSee BRIDGE, page15 See HART, page15

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 2 Experts worry some will miss deadlineBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comAn earlier deadline for enrolling in Medicare plans could result in people missing out,experts say. This year's Medicare annual enrollment dates are from Oct.15 through Dec.7.That means the enrollment period is beginning a full month earlier than it did last year and ending three weeks earlier. Volunteers who help people navigate the bureaucratic maze of Medicare say they're concerned that people who are not paying attention will try to enroll too late. That's why they're putting an emphasis on outreach programs to get the word out and to provide assistance,said Randy Caldwell of Land O' Lakes,who volunteers for the Serving Health Insurance Needs for the Elderly (SHINE) program. "People just don't understand the bureaucracy.It can be intimidating and confusing,"Caldwell said."The need is so great,"he said,and they don't always realize that help is available. That's where SHINE volunteers come in. "We're available.We have outreach programs with churches,social organizations,"Caldwell said.They also can provide one-on-one assistance. SHINE volunteers realize it can be difficult and confusing to enroll in Medicare plans,to keep up with changes and to compare plans that are available,said Jan Rauer of Lutz,a volunteer who trains SHINE volunteers. When helping people navigate the system,SHINE volunteers focus on helping people find plans that are suitable for their needs by presenting various options and explaining the differences. The idea is to present information, not to advocate particular plans, Caldwell said. To prepare for the enrollment period,individuals should ask themselves: Have your health needs changed? Are your drugs covered by the plan you are considering? Does your doctor accept the plan you are considering? Does your plan fit your budget? Be sure to compare all costs,including premiums,copays,deductibles and coinsurance. Those who are approaching age 65 should also be aware that enrollment in Medicare is not automatic, Rauer said.There is a seven-month period for initial enrollment into Medicare,she said.That includes the three months before an individual turns 65,the month of the individual's birthday and the three months following it. Additional information,individual appointments and requests for public speakers can be made by contacting the local Area on Aging office at (800) 963-5337. Leaders mingle at PEDC dinnerGov.

From outside,it appears to be like any other well-kept suburban home in the Country Crossing subdivision. But step inside and you'll find thousands of books and VHS tapes,all neatly arranged on shelves in the hallway,living room and dining room. Welcome to Barbara Todaro's book sale, an event she holds to raise money for Gulfside Regional Hospice Inc. It began small,as these things often do. She enjoys reading and wanted to buy some books,but found that the prices in bookstores were a bit steeper than she wanted to pay.An idea popped into her head. What about collecting books and selling them to help Gulfside Hospice? It began as a sale on her front yard.Then it moved into the garage. Now,it takes her entire hallway and two full rooms which she has devoted exclusively to the cause.She and her mom, Jeanette Tatro,who is a volunteer for Gulfside,work together to sell the books. They hold the sale about every 6-8 weeks,and all of the proceeds go to Gulfside Center for Hospice Care in Zephyrhills,which is one of the places where Tatro works as a volunteer. So far,they've raised about $1,000.The two-day sale is on Fridays and Saturdays,from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m.each day.Both women said they owe a debt of gratitude for the kindness bestowed on Edmund Tatro Jeanette's husband and Barbara's father as he was approaching death. "They took such great care of my dad,"Todaro said. "They helped bathe him.They talked to him about death,helped prepare him for death.They helped us,too,"Tatro said. Sandy Keezer,a volunteer who works in Gulfside Hospice's thrift store, dropped by to pick up a few books from the sale. She brought along her friend,Marie Nelson of Zephyrhills.She was thrilled by the selection and prices. Children's books cost a quarter,paperbacks are 50 cents and hardbacks are $1,Todaro said.Videotapes are a quarter and textbooks are $3.There are some specially marked items that are more expensive because of their spe-Book sale benefits hospice Barbara Todaro, left, and her mom, Jeanette Tatro, work at a book sale in Todaro's home to raise money for the Gulfside Center for Hospice Care in Zephyrhills.

But she's open to bargaining,and anyone who spends at least $3 gets a free children's book. Sandy Keezer,a volunteer who works in Gulfside Hospice's thrift store,dropped by to pick up a few books from the sale. She brought along her friend,Marie Nelson,who lives in Zephyrhills.She was thrilled by the selection and prices. "Books are like gold to me,"Nelson said. Todaro also accepts book donations,but is not in the market right now.A man named Frank Menendez from Tampa recently donated 1,800 books. He told Todaro that he had found out about the book sale online and wanted to help a good cause. To find out the dates for the next book sale call the organization's thrift store in Zephyrhills at (813) 788-5461. If you have a video cassettee recorder you may want to pick up a few of these videotapes next time Barbara Todaro has a book sale.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 4 Pasco High graduate struck while evacuating othersBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comHours after celebrating his 21st birthday, Pasco High graduate and Dade City resident Justin Inversso was fatally struck by lightning while at Adventure Island water park on Sept.10.Justin was working as a lifeguard supervisor and was trying to clear guests off the Key West Rapids water slide in anticipation of severe weather coming through the area.He was standing in 2-3 feet of water when the strike happened at about 11:45 a.m.,according to a Tampa Fire Rescue incident report. The report states other employees pulled Justin out of the water and tried to perform CPR.He was taken to University Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.Justin's father is Sgt. Frank Inversso,a bailiff supervisor with the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. "He was a strong young man,conscientious of living his life according to the ways of the Lord,"Frank said."He was a true lifeguard.He was committed to being a true life preserver and soul preserver. "He is at peace," Frank continued."He would be celebrating his life as a victory."Justin graduated from Pasco in 2009 and from PascoHernando Community College this spring.He had just started his junior year at the University of South Florida as an engineering student.Frank said Justin had hoped to be part of an engineering program at Busch Gardens,which would help pay for his tuition while giving him experience in the field.Frank said Justin was an honors student while at Pasco,where he also was a captain of the Pirates swimming and diving team. He also played on the Dade City school's basketball team as a sophomore. The park was in the process of closing the ride and other attractions because of the approaching storm when Justin was hit,according to the fire rescue incident report.It added that rain had not yet begun to fall when the strike happened. Jim Dean,president of Busch Gardens and Adventure Island,said it is the first time anyone has been hit by lighting at the park since it opened in 1980. "Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our employees and guests," Dean said.He added the park is constantly monitoring the weather in case of any approaching threat.Dean said their investigation has shown the lightning hit the tower that helps hold up the 700-foot-tallwater slide. The electricity traveled through the metal and the water surrounding Justin before entering his body.Ray Yeakley,spokesman for Hillsborough County Fire Rescue,said it is "amazing no one else was hurt"because of the lightning strike that killed Justin. "Because there is so much water,anyone else standing in the water would have likely been badly hurt or killed too,"Yeakley said. "Everyone else must have been able to get out before it happened." Yeakley said people need to be extra cautious when severe weather is approaching, because it doesn't have to be raining for a deadly bolt to strike. "The best thing to do is get out of any water as soon as you hear any thunder or see lightning or dark storm clouds,"Yeakley said."The lighting can pass all the way through even the biggest pools.You also need to stay away until a storm has completely passed over." Yeakley added people should come down from any high elevations and avoid metal objects during a storm. As for Justin,his family laid him to rest last week. "He's in heaven now,"Frank said."He got to go to heaven for his birthday,and there is no better place to be."

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 5 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThose who take advantage of Pasco County's public transportation will soon see advertising as they board their buses. Pasco County Public Transportation (PCPT) recently started selling advertising space on the sides of its bus fleet.The first companies to buy a spot are Farrell Roofing and also Greg Henry Restoration,both Pasco-based firms. Both companies bought yearlong contracts for ads that fully wrap around the outside of one bus,which comes with a $5,000 per month price tag.Of that,the county will get $650 each month,according to PCPT director Mike Carroll. Steve Farrell,owner of Farrell Roofing, said the chance to advertise on PCPT buses was one his company couldn't pass up. "Most of our advertising is our vehicles," Farrell said."The bus is a little bit larger than our vehicles,and I think that will work well." Those are just the first two ads that have been installed.County commissioners have already reached agreements that will result in about $1 million in extra revenue generated from the ads during the next five years. The ads will be put on the buses by Black Jack Media,a Pasco-based company, which will pay for instillation and any maintenance.The group is also helping sell the spots for the county.Black Jack sales manager Regan Weiss said it takes about eight hours to finish adding ads to one bus. The deal calls for Black Jack to sell ads on all 36 of Pasco's buses by the end of 2012.By that time the county will start collecting more money for each wrap sold on the buses,up to $850 per vehicle per month. Weiss said his company has already gotten interest from such businesses as the Tampa Bay Storm and Nike.The county will not accept certain ads,such as those for lawyers and politicians,alcohol,tobacco, adult entertainment,pawn shops and tattoo parlors among others. Carroll said he plans on using the newly wrapped buses on some of PCPT's busiest routes to "put them in front of the most eyes possible,"such as those that travel along US 301 and US 19. Carroll said companies can also advertise on the inside of the buses,or with smaller ones on the outside. PCPT joins the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART),which already sells advertising spots on its bus fleet. For additional information on PCPT,visit portal.pascocountyfl.net. Pasco County Public Transportation buses will likely all have advertisements by the end of next year.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 7 By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comIn March,Heidi Bernaldo saw a blog on the Girl Scouts of the USA website that piqued her interest.The blog mentioned how after Sept.11,2001,Girl Scouts in Japan had sent over cranes to Girl Scouts in the United States.The blog was asking for the favor to be returned in light of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan on March 11.Bernaldo,the troop mom of Girl Scouts Senior Troop 457 in Wesley Chapel,passed along the blog to one of her scouts,Dana Lawson,and suggested the troop make and send cranes. The girls were interested,Bernaldo said: "They all agreed to do it,no problem." Lawson,14,is one-fourth Japanese and has family in Sendai,Japan.She was in her first period history class when her teacher told the class there was an earthquake in Japan.She didn't learn the extent of the disaster's damage until later that day. "I thought it was a really good idea,making the cranes,"Lawson said."I know how much the idea of making 1,000 cranes as an expression of goodwill toward someone and how much that's valued over in Japan." She also was unable to establish any contact with her family in Sendai.She still hasn't been able to firmly see if the dozen members of her family in Japan are OK,though she believes they are. "It's been hard since so many people are uprooted,and we haven't heard from my family in a while before the quake,"Lawson said. She went to Temple Terrace to get the origami paper in approximately 20 colors. The money came from funds raised last year by selling cookies.The rest of the money is aimed toward a senior trip for the troop, whose six members are all in high school. "Girl Scouts worldwide are sisters," Bernaldo said."When they heard about the disaster that their sister troops had had in their country,they wanted to make something to make them feel better." The girls took to YouTube to learn how to fold the origami cranes.The folding started in June,with the magic number at 1,000 cranes."Apparently 1,000 cranes is good luck in Japanese,"Bernaldo said.One thousand cranes,divided by six girls meant each troop Seen clockwise from bottom left are Girl Scouts Alyssa Blackledge, Laura Bernaldo, Aspen Cooper, Dana Lawson, Ashley Barthelette and Alexis Blackledge. (Photos courtesy of Susan Barnes)Troop makes cranes for Japanmember would have folded 166 cranes. Every meeting,the troop would spend the first 15-20 minutes in a crane-making session."Girls took paper home and made cranes at home,also,"said Bernaldo,who tried to make a few cranes,but left it to the pros. "They could whip them out really quick," she said."I would find my daughter up at like 1:30 some mornings making cranes." Bernaldo said all 1,000 cranes are accounted for and she is just waiting to hear for an address to send them to.

Trivedi, M.D.Stress is an unavoidable fact of life,especially in a school setting.Parents feel it,kids feel it and so does school staff.Here are five effective tips to help tackle the stresses in YOUR student's life.1.PLAN AHEADMark off on a calendar important dates such as major exams and report-cards and include fun days like holidays,vacations and school trips.Preparing a calendar will allow for timely and thorough preparations that go a long way in eliminating stress before it happens.2.DON'T PANIC IN STRESSFUL SITUATIONSExperience breeds confidence.A child can easily feel frustrated and overwhelmed in a challenging situation.You can help your child evaluate the problem in its proper perspective by breaking it down into smaller more achievable goals.3.LISTEN TO THE CHILDTalking it out"is the oldest remedy to stress.There is a tremendous diffusion of mental tension in just'venting.Often times, just having an adult say,"tell me more"or "I felt that way when I was your age,"will help.Having stressful feelings validated by an adult gives children a great sense of comfort and improves their odds at succeeding.4.RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS OF STRESSSome of the most common signs observed in stressed children and teens are irritability,aloofness,appearing preoccupied,doing things without thinking of the outcome, changes in sleeping or eating habits,nightmares,and a sudden decline in grades or not wanting to go to school. Some of these signs are also indicative of deeper emotional problems that may require medical treatment.If you recognize any such signs in your child,seek input from the school or teacher,guidance counselor or a school psychologist.A pediatrician can arrange for a professional consultation with a mental health professional.5.EAT RIGHT,DRINK PLENTY OF WATER,SLEEP WELL, EXERCISE AND HAVE LOTS OF FUNThere's no better or stronger protection from stress than proper nutrition,adequate rest and living a balanced,joyful life. Remember,you've never really had fun when you were stressed and you've never been stressed while you were truly having fun. Dr.Trivedi is the newest psychiatrist at Florida Medical Clinic.

Ask the Doctor What is the flu? Ahighly contagious respiratory illness that occurs at any age. How is the flu spread? Through coughing, sneezing and touching surfaces. Peaks when school is in session because of close student contact. What are the symptoms? Fever temperature over 100F Headache and muscle aches Fatigue Cough and sore throat When should call my doctor? Shortness of breathe trouble breathing Pain or pressure in the chest or stomach Dehydration, such as dizziness when standing or not urinating Feelings of confusion Cannot stop vomiting Bluish or purplish skin color Fever with a rash Child who is so irritable that he does not want to be held Baby who cries with no tears Child who does not wake up easily Should I take flu medicines? Over-the-counter flu medicine treats flu symptoms and can help you feel better. But they do not make the flu go away faster. How is the flu prevented? The flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. People who get the vaccine have a reduced likelihood of getting the flu compared to people who are not vaccinated. When should I get the flu shot? Because the flu virus changes from year to year, a new flu shot is needed every year. People should get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to get maximum benefit.More questions? Call Dr. Burton's office at (813) 994-1286. Who's whoWhen Allison Burton was in high school, she had the opportunity to volunteer in Patient Services at University Community Hospital in Tampa.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe 2010 Steinbrenner girls golf team became the first Warriors sports program to make it all the way to states,something the current squad plans on making a tradition. "Our expectations are to improve going into districts,"said Steinbrenner coach Mark Mann."The girls want to get back to state as a team.They're hungry to do that and capable of getting back.I think this is the best overall team that I've coached in my seven years from top to bottom.All the kids are interchangeable with their scores." The Warriors won the Class 1A-District 14 championship last season in the program's second year,and followed that up with a regional runner-up finish. Steinbrenner returns three of the five players that competed in states last year,but one of those losses leaves a large void. Alex Milan won four individual district championships,two at Sickles and two at Steinbrenner,and also made it to states three of her four years in high school.Her efforts last year made her the All-Laker/All-Lutz News Girls Golfer of the Year and also earned her a golf scholarship with Florida State University. "She helped put us on the map,"Mann said."She's someone that was able to make us recognized for golf.I think she's set a legacy here that a lot of these girls want to help build on." While all on the team admit it will be difficult to replace Milan,they are using what she taught them to help continue the Warriors budding tradition in girls golf. "It's very exciting when you have these kids who were able to see and learn from Alex,"Mann said."It showed them that with hard work you can go far.I think the girls have taken to it well this season and have been working hard all year." Steinbrenner senior Michelle Stein added,"As a freshman I had no idea what I was doing,and Alex kind of brought me along.She showed me how to have great integrity and helped me have a passion for the game.She also showed me how to be a calm influence on the other girls to help everything go easier.She showed us it's OK to have a bad shot,because the next one is right in front of you." The Warriors are young,with two seniors,two sophomores and three freshmen. Mann said his seniors,Sara Bair and Stein, are more than capable of filling that leadership void. "It's so funny because I'm looking around for the older players,"Bair said with a laugh."There's supposed to be someone else here.It's definitely different,but it's fun to have that new role and bond with girls at a new level.I think Michelle and I can handle it and help the team get to where we want to." Mann has coached both Stein and Bair since their freshmen years at Sickles. "They've been through this for three years,so they know what to expect from the season and the routines,"Mann said. "They were able to get some experience and leadership from Alex and that torch is passed to them.It's really fun for me because they are such different players from when they started.Now our young girls look up to them." The Warriors have started the season fast,winning their first five matches including a 161-167 victory against perennial powerhouse Plant on Sept.8.Freshman Claire Becker shot a career-low 37 to lead Steinbrenner,followed by Stein's 40,Bair's 41 and freshman Kelsey Holbert's 43. The young team will also have to deal with moving up in classification into 2A-10 with such schools as Freedom and Wharton.The last two years the Warriors were placed in a lower class by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) and played schools with smaller student populations,which is a common practice by the organization to help new programs. Mann said his team likes the challenge of competing against different schools in the district. "We'll be playing more of the public schools in this area and that helps make some more rivalries for us,"Mann said."The school won a bunch of district championships last year and the girls soccer team won states,and it's those things that help bring in more interest from the students at the school." Along with that state soccer title, Warriors athlete Alexis Wright won the 2A state 100-meter hurdles championship,and the Steinbrenner boys cross country team finished as the 2A state runner-up last season.Stein said it is an honor to be a part of a young school creating a winning tradition. "It's really exciting to be a part of the history of a school,"Stein said."To have our name on a district trophy and be there for that winning moment."Warriors out to make tradition of golfing success Steinbrenner senior Sara Bair works on her short game during one of the Warriors' recent practices.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21, 2011 12 SPORTS By Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com Robert Woodard has been named the girls soccer coach at Steinbrenner High, Warriors athletic director Eddie Henderson announced on Sept. 12. “We felt like Robert has the right qualities to lead our successful girls soccer program here at Steinbrenner High School,” Henderson said. “We had a lot of very qualified people apply for the job, and we were fortunate that Robert was one of them. He brings a strong knowledge of soccer and a passion to coach.” The Warriors won the Class 4A state championship last season in the school’s second year, defeating Merritt Island 2-1 in overtime in the title game. Steinbrenner finished with a 21-2-2 record in 2010-11 after going 17-1-2 in 200910. “I’m really happy to be working with such a great group of players,” Woodard said. “Winning a state championship was a monumental accomplishment. No one has ever won a (soccer) state title in the second year of a program.” Woodard has more than 20 years experience coaching and playing soccer. He was an assistant at Jesuit and Bloomingdale before coming to the Lutz-based school. Woodard worked with both the boys and girls programs while at Bloomingdale, where he coached in six state title games, including the Bulls boys’ state championship seasons in 1993, 1995 and 1998. That experience as an assistant in state final fours has made him accustomed to pressure that comes with high expectations. “Obviously there are tremendous expectations (here), but the standards were equally high at Bloomingdale,” Woodard said. Training begins in October for the Warriors, but Woodard said he is confident the girls are already doing everything they can to be prepared for the season. “These girls already know how to train and play, so it’s a matter of establishing our identity for the upcoming season,” Woodard said. Steinbrenner moves up in classification into Class 5A-District 8, which includes four playoff teams from last season. Besides the Warriors, the alignment includes Class 5A regional finalist Gaither, Class 4A regional finalist Wiregrass Ranch and Freedom, which won the 5A-9 district championship the last two years. Woodard will likely return most of the top contributors from the Warriors’ championship squad, losing only three seniors to graduation. One of those key returners includes senior forward Cici Gonzalez, who posted 33 goals and 34 assists last season making her the only girls soccer player in Hillsborough County with a 30/30 year. She was also named the All-Laker/All-Lutz News Girls Soccer Player of the Year. Also likely to return is junior forward Alexis Bredeau and her 24 goals and 13 assists from last season, as well as sophomore midfielder Danielle Eule, who had 11 goals and 12 assists last year. Woodard also joined Steinbrenner’s staff as an exceptional education instructor. He replaces Teresa Patterson, who had coached the Warriors since the school opened in 2009, but resigned the post early this year to start her family. Patterson also coached at Gaither in 2008-09. Steinbrenner will start the 2011-12 season at Jefferson on Monday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. —All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches.Woodard picked to coach defending state champs The Steinbrenner girls soccer team after winning the Class 4A state title last season.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 14 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comBishop McLaughlin volleyball player Jess Johnson and her brother Glenn Jr.,a soccer player at Pine View Middle,each were invited to play in international all-star events this summer. Jess,a 5-foot-11 senior outside hitter,was selected as one of 12 high-school-aged players for Team Florida Girls Youth International Team that played in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships.The event was in Tucson, Ariz.,July 25-30,the same week Glenn Jr. was playing in his own all-star event. Glenn Jr.was picked to play in the Knowsley International Youth Soccer Tournament in Liverpool as part of the Florida Alliance Soccer League All-Star Team. Soccer players were selected from affiliated clubs in Hillsborough,Pasco,Pinellas and Manatee counties. The Land O'Lakes duo said they enjoy having a sibling that is also talented in sports.It is also fun for their parents,Brenda and Glenn Sr.,but it isn't always easy attending the two all stars'sporting events. "We're basically going in different directions just trying to keep up,"Brenda said. Glenn Sr.added with a laugh,"There has been a lot of stuff broken in our house from them practicing when they shouldn't.Actually my son wanted to move his bed out of his room so he could have an indoor mini soccer field.It didn't happen." Both parents played high school sports.Brenda was a basketball and softball player, while Glenn Sr.played football and baseball. Glenn Jr.played multiple sports at a very young age,including football,baseball and basketball,but Jess did not take to athletic events as naturally. "It was interesting for Jessi because she was a Barbie-doll playing young girl,"Glenn Sr. said."She didn't want to play any sports at all.We tried her at every sport,and she didn't like any of them.Volleyball was the last choice,and it worked out."Jess has taken off with volleyball since she started playing at the New Tampa YMCA at age 8.She has been a four-year varsity player in high school,first at Wiregrass Ranch as a freshman,at Land O' Lakes as a sophomore and the last two years at Bishop McLaughlin.Jess posted 328 kills and 201 aces last year for the Hurricanes.She has 706 kills and 296 aces while in high school. Jess had to attend two tryouts to make Team Florida.She was one of about 100 girls vying to make the final cut. "I was actually surprised because I was cut the previous year,"Jess said."I wasn't expecting anything.When I did make it,I was so excited." Team Florida played against similar squads from across the nation and world, coming in ninth overall. "It really gives you a good look at what it's going to look like when you play in college,"Jess said."In college it's all the best kids who are playing club. I want to play in college.Playing professional isn't really a goal of mine,but if I got the opportunity it would be really hard to turn down." Jess'favorite player is setter Alisha Glass, who won three straight national titles while at Penn State from 2007-09. Jess wants to major in chemistry and eventually become a pharmacist if professional volleyball isn't in the cards. Glenn Jr.started playing soccer at age 4. His favorite player is Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona. While he was expecting to make the Florida Alliance team,Glenn Jr.said he was very honored when he heard he was picked. "It was a great experience,"Glenn Jr.said. "The game was more physical,and we finished second place in the U13 division." He plays for both Pine View Middle and the Wesley Chapel Flames U13 squad.Glenn Jr.would like to play in college and possibly make a career out of the sport he loves. The siblings have shined athletically,but their parents make sure they do not fall behind in the classroom. "School is always the priority,"Brenda said."We make sure of that.Glenn Jr.has to get his homework done before practice is even an option.We're pretty firm about that, so I think athletics has helped motivate their academics."

The project is expected to be completedBRIDGE,from page 1has gotten two Bs on his high school GPA, one in physical science while in eighth grade and another in English I. "I didn't know the science would count because I took it in middle school,but it did,"Reece said."In English it was borderline and I didn't turn in one worksheet.I still think about that B in English,and after that I told myself I wasn't going to get a B again." Reece's academic focus became apparent to teachers early in the school year. Danielle de Gregory teaches Reece Advanced Placement psychology and African-American history.She has only seen his work in the classroom for about a month,but already understands why he has been able to post such a high GPA. "The bell rings and he starts his work,"de Gregory said."We all have bell work in every class.Mikhail starts his work immediately. He doesn't finish talking with someone or stand in the hall for a few more seconds.The bell rings and he knows it's time to get down to business." Reece is also a defensive end and team captain on the Gaither football team. Cowboys coach Jason Stokes said he brings that same "down to business"approach to the gridiron. "As soon as we blow the whistle he's all business,"Stokes said."When he sees kids in practice not focusing,he'll say something before the coaches.He's one of those special kids you don't get to coach very often." Reece had 12 tackles,two passes defensed,one sack and one forced fumble last football season.Stokes said he believes he will have a huge impact as a senior. "He has all the measurables to be a bigtime player,"Stokes said."He's very coachable and puts in the work to get better.Plus he understands concepts very quickly and can see what other teams are trying to do to him." Reece isn't just a brain.He also has leadership qualities as apparent as his intelligence. "I met Mikhail last year because as student government advisor I had to pick four juniors to take to the West Point Leadership Conference,"de Gregory said."Mikhail was a perfect person because they wanted student leaders and leaders on sports teams, and he is a leader on the football team and academically." When de Gregory was working to find the right juniors to bring on the trip,she asked student government members who they believed should go. "They all said Mikhail Reece without thinking about it,"de Gregory said."So not only do his teachers rave about him,but the kids think the same way about him. I couldn't find a more upstanding kid than Mikhail Reece.He is a fine young man." Reece's efforts in the classroom and on the football field have one of the most prestigious Ivy League universities interested in him.He was officially given a scholarship offer to play at Yale. "When I got the Yale offer,it's an honor, but I know that I have the ability because both sides of my family have people whoLEADER,from page 1 POSTAGE IS NEEDED! for the shipment of items generously donated by our community.WILL YOU HELP?

So I know if I don't do well it's only because I didn't put in the effort." Reece thanked Gaither offensive line coach Jeff Ditman for helping him get noticed by Yale.Ditman attended the Ivy League school and also played football for the Bulldogs."I think it's the perfect fit for him,"Ditman said."I have to watch myself because I don't want it to seem like I'm pushing him to go there,but looking at it objectively he's a great fit.I know they like him athletically,and I think he can succeed there as a football player.Academically I know it's a great opportunity for him,and I think his personality would fit perfectly there.I'll support whatever he does,but it would be good for him and for Yale to have him."While Ditman never directly coached or taught Reece,he has still seen his intelligence shine through on the field."He plays intelligently and he understands what he needs to do and what the other team is trying to do to him,"Ditman said."I communicate that to my offensive linemen how much of an assist that is,and of course we have to deal with him in practice. We can't outsmart him.It's hard to fool him because he sees things in a different way."Reece said he is most interested in math classes and would like to become an engineer like his father if things don't work out with football. "If I could go to the (NFL),that would be a dream,"Reece said."That would be the ultimate goal and after that I could do a lot of other things with my mind if it happens."

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21, 2011 16 SPORTS By Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com The Steinbrenner football team recorded the first shutout in the program’s three-year history by winning 28-0 at Strawberry Crest on Sept. 16. The victory moves the Warriors to 2-1 on the season, giving them a winning record for the first time ever, but Steinbrenner coach Floyd Graham knows the squad needs to clean up its mistakes to reach its potential. “I think we can play a whole lot better than what we did,” Graham said. “We had a couple of touchdowns called back because of penalties. If we’re going to compete in our district we can’t do that. “We had way too many punts, way too many penalties and the penalties came at the wrong time,” Graham continued. “We gave them an automatic first down on defense when it was third and 18; we ran into the punter and gave them another first down. Those things cannot happen.” The Warriors defense has allowed just 24 points in its first three games, music to Graham’s ears. “I’m a big believer in winning on D,” Graham said. “We expect to win with defense, special teams and ball control. Against Crest the defense played outstanding.” Steinbrenner got on the board when running back Kendall Pearcey raced 94 yards for a touchdown on a sweep play. “I was really proud of Pearcey because last year he got a concussion against Crest and never really bounced back,” Graham said. “Then the first time he touched the ball against them this year he goes 94 yards for a touchdown and scores in the same end zone he got the concussion last year.” Running back Jake Carroll had scoring catches of 45 and 34 yards from quarterback Curtis Fitch. Wide receiver Zack Jones also had a 5-yard touchdown run. Graham said he was happy with the 2minute offense, as the team was able to complete an 80-yard touchdown drive that began with 1:14 left in the first half to go into the locker room up 14-0.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 18 SPORTS Volleyball, cheerleading, soccer see gainsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe number of high school students participating in sports has dropped during the last year,according to data released by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) last week.The overall number of participants fell by 2,365 from the 2009-10 school year, down to 245,079 in 2010-11.That decrease happened despite the student population increasing by 4,665 during that same time.Boys participation dropped by 1 percent during that time,down from 140,096 to 139,751.Girls participation dropped 2 percent,down from 107,348 to 105,328. The sport that lost the most student-athletes was softball,which fell by 3,771 participants,or 23 percent,from the 200910 school year.Girls tennis also dropped by 5 percent,down to 4,692 players. Boys cross country and track and field participation dropped by 3 percent each, down to 6,683 and 15,493 respectively. Despite the slight decrease,Pasco County athletic director Phil Bell is optimistic about sports participation in the area. "I think the decrease has something to do with the down economy,"Bell said."If you look at the totals during the last few years you'll find the number is up during that time.It is just down a little bit from last year to this year." FHSAA records show the number of student-athletes has increased every year during the last decade except between the last two years.There were 2,726 more participants in 2010-11 than the 2008-09 school year. The numbers have dropped within the FHSAA despite a record-breaking number of students participating in high school sports nationally.The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS),of which the FHSAA is a member,reports 7.7 million kids in the United States played some high school sport last school year,or about 55.5 percent of all students at member schools. "While the overall increase was not as much as we've seen in the past few years, we are definitely encouraged with these totals given the financial challenges facing our nation's high schools,"said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director."The benefits of education-based athletics at the high school level are well-documented,and we encourage communities throughout the nation to keep these doors of opportunity open." The sport that saw the largest increase in participants at FHSAA member schools during the last year was girls volleyball,which added 534 new players,a 4 percent increase. Both boys and girls soccer also saw gains in Florida,with an additional 434 and 419 student-athletes respectively.Cheerleading increased by 403,while football saw a modest increase of 183 players. Lacrosse participation in the state also increased by 687 combined for boys and girls teams,but the sport is not offered through the FHSAA in either Pasco or Hillsborough counties.Bowling had 453 more total student-athletes than two years ago,but it is also not offered in the area.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIn the Florida Shuffleboard Association's (FSA) 83-year history,only one woman has ever scored 1,000 career points.Zephyrhills resident Joan Cook plans to soon make it two. Cook has amassed 895 points since she started playing 16 years ago.Players earn points for finishing near the top of statesanctioned events and Cook is likely to crack the 1,000-point mark in two years,especially considering how dedicated she is to the game. "Other than shuffleboard,I don't do a whole lot,"Cook sad."It's my life." The Betmar Acres resident takes a break from the sport each summer,but is a regular sight at the RV park's shuffleboard courts. There is something about the strategy,clanging of the discuses and spirited nature of the game that keeps her coming back. "I started because I thought I'd be good at it,"Cook said."As it's turned out,I have been. I've always been competitive,so I want to play something that I can win at.I love sports, and it's a good way to stay active." Cook grew up playing baseball and bowling.She was born in Ontario,Canada and first came to Zephyrhills 25 years ago.She never expected to come anywhere near 1,000 points when she first picked up a shuffleboard cue. "The goal wasn't to get to 1,000 points," Cook said."It was to get to 200 points to get into the state hall of fame,which I did (in 2003). There is the social part of it,but mostly I love to win.It certainly isn't about the money,because it costs more to travel to the tournaments than you can get if you win." Cook has played in the state masters tournament,for only the top eight men or women in the state,10 times and won it three times.She has also claimed eight national and three international championships. Two of those titles came with Earl Ball, whose 15 national titles are tied for the most all time. "We won two mixed doubles national championships in Hendersonville,N.C.,"said Ball,who lives in Betmar."We also won the only two mixed doubles state tournaments two years in a row,and no other team has ever done that.So that makes four state championships.I'd say we were very successful together. "She's dead serious and a hard worker," Ball added."She expects the very best out of herself.If she isn't playing well,everyone knows about it too.She doesn't accept mediocre." Ball said Cook has benefited from playing in so many mixed doubles events. "She comes and plays with and against men often,so her game is tailored to a man's style of play,"Ball said. Ball explained women shuffleboard players tend to focus on hitting their opponent's discus out of the way.Men usually employ several game plans to win,such as setting up blocks or working to put people in the kitchen,the section of the court that deducts 10 points from their score. "That means she has a lot of different ways to win when she plays against women," Ball said."They don't know what to do when she has more tricks up her sleeve." Cook is back on the fast track toward 1,000 points,but personal heartbreak almost derailed her chance.Her husband Richard Cook died in 2009. "That was the saddest thing that could have happened to me because he was my biggest supporter,"Cook said."I took a year off after that,or I probably would have already had the 1,000 points." Cook said she and her husband played shuffleboard a lot. "I actually got him into it,"Cook said with a laugh."I had to teach him how to play.We played as a team together in amateurs and never won anything.He was the typical man doing whatever he wanted on the court.I'd get so mad at him sometimes because we'd have a match won,and then he'd do whatever he wanted,and we'd lose it in the end.He drove me nuts,but as soon as we were off the court,we'd love each other again." Once Cook gets to 1,000 points she said her focus will shift toward helping others improve their own shuffleboard game. "Once I get the 1,000 points,I'll help people get into the hall of fame,"Cook said. "I'll team with some of those who are close and try to help them win enough points to make it." Zephyrhills resident Joan Cook is 105 points away from being the second woman shuffleboarder to reach 1,000.

(Photo by Anthony V. Masella Jr. of www.OurtownFLA.com) LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Editor:Due to budget crises at every level of government,our public parks are at serious risk of deferred maintenance,commercial exploitation or permanent shutdown.But we can't afford that kind of "savings."A single park closure can cause a ripple effect of damage throughout the community.A closed or ill-maintained park becomes vulnerable to vandalism and crime.A playground covered in graffiti invites more graffiti;a field scattered with trash invites more trash.Reduced property values and less tourism are the inevitable results. In fact,the benefits that parks produce far outweigh their costs.And yet,parks are typically the first and easiest target of budget cutters. Creating and maintaining public parks stimulates the economy. By offering free or inexpensive recreation,parks improve public health and the quality of life for all,regardless of socioeconomic status. Parks also provide measurable environmental benefits:Trees and vegetation absorb pollutants and leave both air and water cleaner. Parks are a public trust.They belong to taxpayers,and taxpayers should have a voice in their management.

(Photo courtesy of Brenda Johnson) For story, see page 14.Mikhail Reece excels in school, football and lifeBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comMikhail Reece stands out from the crowd no matter where he is thanks to his 6-foot-5, 245-pound body, but his mind and leadership abilities are what truly separate the Gaither senior from others. Reece currently has a 5.8 weighted grade point average (GPA), putting him on pace to be the Gaither salutatorian. His grandmother Nell instilled in him a thirst for knowledge, which endures to this day. My mom (Jaclin) would be working, so my grandmother taught me how to read and about math, Reece said. I knew my times tables at the age of 5 because of her. She gave me that extra push to get started. Now it just comes natural, and when Im engaged in a class I want to do the work. Reece is also thankful for the free education offered in the United States. He was born in Kingston, Jamaica, a country where people have to pay $500$600 a year just to attend basic schooling. Throw in money for uniforms and books, and most people on the island nation are not financially able to get a high school equivalent diploma. I know that its a blessing to have free schooling here through high school, and if you excel enough they will pay you to go to college, Reece said. Its not like that in Jamaica or basically everywhere else, so I want to jump on that and take advantage of the education here. Reece came to the United States around age 4. HeThe leader of the pack Mikhail Reece is not only a leader in academics at Gaither, but is also one of the team captains on the Cowboys football team. (Photo courtesy of Gaither football)See LEADER, page15 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) set a new bus ridership record this year. HART spokeswoman Marcia Mejia said 12.5 million passengers have ridden on the agencys buses during the current fiscal year, already besting the previous record of 12.3 million set in 2010. HARTs fiscal year ends on Sept. 30. This year, more people are recognizing the value of public transit, Mejia said. We appreciate the trust our new and long-time customers have demonstrated by getting onboard in such record numbers. Ridership in August rose 11 percent compared to the same month last year despite HART cutting back some routes because of budget reductions. Despite those small cuts, Mejia said the agency has made several large capital improvements, as well as subtle changes to produce a better product. For instance, about every four months HART updates its route schedule to ensure transit service matches current and projected ridership demands, Mejia said. Mejia then added, There is now one shelter for every seven bus stops, compared to one in 15 just a few years ago. Moreover, in August 2011 the HART board approved a contract for 41 new shelters throughout Hillsborough County over the next two years. With inclement weather conditions endured by this area, shelters are extremely important to protecting customers from the elements, and makes public transit easier and more convenient to use. HART also has changed its farecard program, where people buy passes good for a month of bus fare. Previously, the cards expired at the end of a month regardless of when it was bought, but now they are good for 31 days. Mejia said the agency has several plans to improve service during the next few years to account for the record number of riders. One is MetroRapid North-South, which is designed to quickly take large numbers of people from areas around The HART 20x pulls away from the bus stop after dropping riders off at the First Baptist Church of Lutz. HART has already set a new record for ridership this year.

The job will add a bridge to allow drivers to pass over the interstate, allowing residents of Tampa Palms and the surrounding neighborhoods to reach either Freedom High school without using Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. The project is funded by the Tampa City Council and is being performed by Prince Contracting. Jim Hudock, contract administrator for the city council, said the job has been in the works for several years. The city council has wanted to build this bridge for years to take people off Bruce B. Downs, which is heavily congested, Hudock said. It will also save New Tampa residents time if they are getting around the area. Hudock said there had been fighting for years by the several neighborhood groups that opposed the bridge because they believed it would make the roadways more dangerous with the increase in traffic. Tampa Palms attorney Warren Dixon even sued the city to stop the project, but he no longer opposes it. He dropped the suit after getting assurances safety measures,New I-75 bridge progressingSee BRIDGE, page15 See HART, page15

Volunteers who help people navigate the bureaucratic maze of Medicare say theyre concerned that people who are not paying attention will try to enroll too late. Thats why theyre putting an emphasis on outreach programs to get the word out and to provide assistance,said Randy Caldwell of Land O Lakes,who volunteers for the Serving Health Insurance Needs for the Elderly (SHINE) program. People just dont understand the bureaucracy.It can be intimidating and confusing,Caldwell said.The need is so great,he said,and they dont always realize that help is available. Thats where SHINE volunteers come in. Were available.We have outreach programs with churches,social organizations,Caldwell said.They also can provide one-on-one assistance. SHINE volunteers realize it can be difficult and confusing to enroll in Medicare plans,to keep up with changes and to compare plans that are available,said Jan Rauer of Lutz,a volunteer who trains SHINE volunteers. When helping people navigate the system,SHINE volunteers focus on helping people find plans that are suitable for their needs by presenting various options and explaining the differences. The idea is to present information, not to advocate particular plans, Caldwell said. To prepare for the enrollment period,individuals should ask themselves: Have your health needs changed? Are your drugs covered by the plan you are considering? Does your doctor accept the plan you are considering? Does your plan fit your budget? Be sure to compare all costs,including premiums,copays,deductibles and coinsurance. Those who are approaching age 65 should also be aware that enrollment in Medicare is not automatic, Rauer said.There is a seven-month period for initial enrollment into Medicare,she said.That includes the three months before an individual turns 65,the month of the individuals birthday and the three months following it. Additional information,individual appointments and requests for public speakers can be made by contacting the local Area on Aging office at (800) 963-5337. Gov.

From outside,it appears to be like any other well-kept suburban home in the Country Crossing subdivision. But step inside and youll find thousands of books and VHS tapes,all neatly arranged on shelves in the hallway,living room and dining room. Welcome to Barbara Todaros book sale, an event she holds to raise money for Gulfside Regional Hospice Inc. It began small,as these things often do. She enjoys reading and wanted to buy some books,but found that the prices in bookstores were a bit steeper than she wanted to pay.An idea popped into her head. What about collecting books and selling them to help Gulfside Hospice? It began as a sale on her front yard.Then it moved into the garage. Now,it takes her entire hallway and two full rooms which she has devoted exclusively to the cause.She and her mom, Jeanette Tatro,who is a volunteer for Gulfside,work together to sell the books. They hold the sale about every 6-8 weeks,and all of the proceeds go to Gulfside Center for Hospice Care in Zephyrhills,which is one of the places where Tatro works as a volunteer. So far,theyve raised about $1,000.The two-day sale is on Fridays and Saturdays,from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m.each day.Both women said they owe a debt of gratitude for the kindness bestowed on Edmund Tatro Jeanettes husband and Barbaras father as he was approaching death. They took such great care of my dad,Todaro said. They helped bathe him.They talked to him about death,helped prepare him for death.They helped us,too,Tatro said. Sandy Keezer,a volunteer who works in Gulfside Hospices thrift store, dropped by to pick up a few books from the sale. She brought along her friend,Marie Nelson of Zephyrhills.She was thrilled by the selection and prices. Childrens books cost a quarter,paperbacks are 50 cents and hardbacks are $1,Todaro said.Videotapes are a quarter and textbooks are $3.There are some specially marked items that are more expensive because of their spe-Book sale benefits hospice Barbara Todaro, left, and her mom, Jeanette Tatro, work at a book sale in Todaros home to raise money for the Gulfside Center for Hospice Care in Zephyrhills.

But shes open to bargaining,and anyone who spends at least $3 gets a free childrens book. Sandy Keezer,a volunteer who works in Gulfside Hospices thrift store,dropped by to pick up a few books from the sale. She brought along her friend,Marie Nelson,who lives in Zephyrhills.She was thrilled by the selection and prices. Books are like gold to me,Nelson said. Todaro also accepts book donations,but is not in the market right now.A man named Frank Menendez from Tampa recently donated 1,800 books. He told Todaro that he had found out about the book sale online and wanted to help a good cause. To find out the dates for the next book sale call the organizations thrift store in Zephyrhills at (813) 788-5461. If you have a video cassettee recorder you may want to pick up a few of these videotapes next time Barbara Todaro has a book sale.

The report states other employees pulled Justin out of the water and tried to perform CPR.He was taken to University Community Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.Justins father is Sgt. Frank Inversso,a bailiff supervisor with the Pasco County Sheriffs Office. He was a strong young man,conscientious of living his life according to the ways of the Lord,Frank said.He was a true lifeguard.He was committed to being a true life preserver and soul preserver. He is at peace, Frank continued.He would be celebrating his life as a victory.Justin graduated from Pasco in 2009 and from PascoHernando Community College this spring.He had just started his junior year at the University of South Florida as an engineering student.Frank said Justin had hoped to be part of an engineering program at Busch Gardens,which would help pay for his tuition while giving him experience in the field.Frank said Justin was an honors student while at Pasco,where he also was a captain of the Pirates swimming and diving team. He also played on the Dade City schools basketball team as a sophomore. The park was in the process of closing the ride and other attractions because of the approaching storm when Justin was hit,according to the fire rescue incident report.It added that rain had not yet begun to fall when the strike happened. Jim Dean,president of Busch Gardens and Adventure Island,said it is the first time anyone has been hit by lighting at the park since it opened in 1980. Nothing is more important to us than the safety of our employees and guests, Dean said.He added the park is constantly monitoring the weather in case of any approaching threat.Dean said their investigation has shown the lightning hit the tower that helps hold up the 700-foot-tallwater slide. The electricity traveled through the metal and the water surrounding Justin before entering his body.Ray Yeakley,spokesman for Hillsborough County Fire Rescue,said it is amazing no one else was hurtbecause of the lightning strike that killed Justin. Because there is so much water,anyone else standing in the water would have likely been badly hurt or killed too,Yeakley said. Everyone else must have been able to get out before it happened. Yeakley said people need to be extra cautious when severe weather is approaching, because it doesnt have to be raining for a deadly bolt to strike. The best thing to do is get out of any water as soon as you hear any thunder or see lightning or dark storm clouds,Yeakley said.The lighting can pass all the way through even the biggest pools.You also need to stay away until a storm has completely passed over. Yeakley added people should come down from any high elevations and avoid metal objects during a storm. As for Justin,his family laid him to rest last week. Hes in heaven now,Frank said.He got to go to heaven for his birthday,and there is no better place to be.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 5 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThose who take advantage of Pasco Countys public transportation will soon see advertising as they board their buses. Pasco County Public Transportation (PCPT) recently started selling advertising space on the sides of its bus fleet.The first companies to buy a spot are Farrell Roofing and also Greg Henry Restoration,both Pasco-based firms. Both companies bought yearlong contracts for ads that fully wrap around the outside of one bus,which comes with a $5,000 per month price tag.Of that,the county will get $650 each month,according to PCPT director Mike Carroll. Steve Farrell,owner of Farrell Roofing, said the chance to advertise on PCPT buses was one his company couldnt pass up. Most of our advertising is our vehicles, Farrell said.The bus is a little bit larger than our vehicles,and I think that will work well. Those are just the first two ads that have been installed.County commissioners have already reached agreements that will result in about $1 million in extra revenue generated from the ads during the next five years. The ads will be put on the buses by Black Jack Media,a Pasco-based company, which will pay for instillation and any maintenance.The group is also helping sell the spots for the county.Black Jack sales manager Regan Weiss said it takes about eight hours to finish adding ads to one bus. The deal calls for Black Jack to sell ads on all 36 of Pascos buses by the end of 2012.By that time the county will start collecting more money for each wrap sold on the buses,up to $850 per vehicle per month. Weiss said his company has already gotten interest from such businesses as the Tampa Bay Storm and Nike.The county will not accept certain ads,such as those for lawyers and politicians,alcohol,tobacco, adult entertainment,pawn shops and tattoo parlors among others. Carroll said he plans on using the newly wrapped buses on some of PCPTs busiest routes to put them in front of the most eyes possible,such as those that travel along US 301 and US 19. Carroll said companies can also advertise on the inside of the buses,or with smaller ones on the outside. PCPT joins the Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART),which already sells advertising spots on its bus fleet. For additional information on PCPT,visit portal.pascocountyfl.net. Pasco County Public Transportation buses will likely all have advertisements by the end of next year.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 7 By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comIn March,Heidi Bernaldo saw a blog on the Girl Scouts of the USA website that piqued her interest.The blog mentioned how after Sept.11,2001,Girl Scouts in Japan had sent over cranes to Girl Scouts in the United States.The blog was asking for the favor to be returned in light of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated Japan on March 11.Bernaldo,the troop mom of Girl Scouts Senior Troop 457 in Wesley Chapel,passed along the blog to one of her scouts,Dana Lawson,and suggested the troop make and send cranes. The girls were interested,Bernaldo said: They all agreed to do it,no problem. Lawson,14,is one-fourth Japanese and has family in Sendai,Japan.She was in her first period history class when her teacher told the class there was an earthquake in Japan.She didnt learn the extent of the disasters damage until later that day. I thought it was a really good idea,making the cranes,Lawson said.I know how much the idea of making 1,000 cranes as an expression of goodwill toward someone and how much thats valued over in Japan. She also was unable to establish any contact with her family in Sendai.She still hasnt been able to firmly see if the dozen members of her family in Japan are OK,though she believes they are. Its been hard since so many people are uprooted,and we havent heard from my family in a while before the quake,Lawson said. She went to Temple Terrace to get the origami paper in approximately 20 colors. The money came from funds raised last year by selling cookies.The rest of the money is aimed toward a senior trip for the troop, whose six members are all in high school. Girl Scouts worldwide are sisters, Bernaldo said.When they heard about the disaster that their sister troops had had in their country,they wanted to make something to make them feel better. The girls took to YouTube to learn how to fold the origami cranes.The folding started in June,with the magic number at 1,000 cranes.Apparently 1,000 cranes is good luck in Japanese,Bernaldo said.One thousand cranes,divided by six girls meant each troop Seen clockwise from bottom left are Girl Scouts Alyssa Blackledge, Laura Bernaldo, Aspen Cooper, Dana Lawson, Ashley Barthelette and Alexis Blackledge. (Photos courtesy of Susan Barnes)Troop makes cranes for Japanmember would have folded 166 cranes. Every meeting,the troop would spend the first 15-20 minutes in a crane-making session.Girls took paper home and made cranes at home,also,said Bernaldo,who tried to make a few cranes,but left it to the pros. They could whip them out really quick, she said.I would find my daughter up at like 1:30 some mornings making cranes. Bernaldo said all 1,000 cranes are accounted for and she is just waiting to hear for an address to send them to.

Trivedi, M.D.Stress is an unavoidable fact of life,especially in a school setting.Parents feel it,kids feel it and so does school staff.Here are five effective tips to help tackle the stresses in YOUR students life.1.PLAN AHEADMark off on a calendar important dates such as major exams and report-cards and include fun days like holidays,vacations and school trips.Preparing a calendar will allow for timely and thorough preparations that go a long way in eliminating stress before it happens.2.DONT PANIC IN STRESSFUL SITUATIONSExperience breeds confidence.A child can easily feel frustrated and overwhelmed in a challenging situation.You can help your child evaluate the problem in its proper perspective by breaking it down into smaller more achievable goals.3.LISTEN TO THE CHILDTalking it outis the oldest remedy to stress.There is a tremendous diffusion of mental tension in justventing.Often times, just having an adult say,tell me moreor I felt that way when I was your age,will help.Having stressful feelings validated by an adult gives children a great sense of comfort and improves their odds at succeeding.4.RECOGNIZE THE SIGNS OF STRESSSome of the most common signs observed in stressed children and teens are irritability,aloofness,appearing preoccupied,doing things without thinking of the outcome, changes in sleeping or eating habits,nightmares,and a sudden decline in grades or not wanting to go to school. Some of these signs are also indicative of deeper emotional problems that may require medical treatment.If you recognize any such signs in your child,seek input from the school or teacher,guidance counselor or a school psychologist.A pediatrician can arrange for a professional consultation with a mental health professional.5.EAT RIGHT,DRINK PLENTY OF WATER,SLEEP WELL, EXERCISE AND HAVE LOTS OF FUNTheres no better or stronger protection from stress than proper nutrition,adequate rest and living a balanced,joyful life. Remember,youve never really had fun when you were stressed and youve never been stressed while you were truly having fun. Dr.Trivedi is the newest psychiatrist at Florida Medical Clinic.

Ask the DoctorWhat is the flu? Ahighly contagious respiratory illness that occurs at any age. How is the flu spread? Through coughing, sneezing and touching surfaces. Peaks when school is in session because of close student contact. What ar e the symptoms? Fever temperature over 100F Headache and muscle aches Fatigue Cough and sore throat When should call my doctor? Shortness of breathe trouble breathing Pain or pressure in the chest or stomach Dehydration, such as dizziness when standing or not urinating Feelings of confusion Cannot stop vomiting Bluish or purplish skin color Fever with a rash Child who is so irritable that he does not want to be held Baby who cries with no tears Child who does not wake up easily Should I take flu medicines? Over-the-counter flu medicine treats flu symptoms and can help you feel better But they do not make the flu go away faster. How is the flu prevented? The flu shot is the best way to prevent the flu. People who get the vaccine have a reduced likelihood of getting the flu compared to people who are not vaccinated. When should I get the flu shot? Because the flu virus changes from year to year, a new flu shot is needed every year. People should get the vaccine as soon as it becomes available to get maximum benefit.More questions? Call Dr. Burtons office at (813) 994-1286. Whos whoWhen Allison Burton was in high school, she had the opportunity to volunteer in Patient Services at University Community Hospital in Tampa.

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe 2010 Steinbrenner girls golf team became the first Warriors sports program to make it all the way to states,something the current squad plans on making a tradition. Our expectations are to improve going into districts,said Steinbrenner coach Mark Mann.The girls want to get back to state as a team.Theyre hungry to do that and capable of getting back.I think this is the best overall team that Ive coached in my seven years from top to bottom.All the kids are interchangeable with their scores. The Warriors won the Class 1A-District 14 championship last season in the programs second year,and followed that up with a regional runner-up finish. Steinbrenner returns three of the five players that competed in states last year,but one of those losses leaves a large void. Alex Milan won four individual district championships,two at Sickles and two at Steinbrenner,and also made it to states three of her four years in high school.Her efforts last year made her the All-Laker/All-Lutz News Girls Golfer of the Year and also earned her a golf scholarship with Florida State University. She helped put us on the map,Mann said.Shes someone that was able to make us recognized for golf.I think shes set a legacy here that a lot of these girls want to help build on. While all on the team admit it will be difficult to replace Milan,they are using what she taught them to help continue the Warriors budding tradition in girls golf. Its very exciting when you have these kids who were able to see and learn from Alex,Mann said.It showed them that with hard work you can go far.I think the girls have taken to it well this season and have been working hard all year. Steinbrenner senior Michelle Stein added,As a freshman I had no idea what I was doing,and Alex kind of brought me along.She showed me how to have great integrity and helped me have a passion for the game.She also showed me how to be a calm influence on the other girls to help everything go easier.She showed us its OK to have a bad shot,because the next one is right in front of you. The Warriors are young,with two seniors,two sophomores and three freshmen. Mann said his seniors,Sara Bair and Stein, are more than capable of filling that leadership void. Its so funny because Im looking around for the older players,Bair said with a laugh.Theres supposed to be someone else here.Its definitely different,but its fun to have that new role and bond with girls at a new level.I think Michelle and I can handle it and help the team get to where we want to. Mann has coached both Stein and Bair since their freshmen years at Sickles. Theyve been through this for three years,so they know what to expect from the season and the routines,Mann said. They were able to get some experience and leadership from Alex and that torch is passed to them.Its really fun for me because they are such different players from when they started.Now our young girls look up to them. The Warriors have started the season fast,winning their first five matches including a 161-167 victory against perennial powerhouse Plant on Sept.8.Freshman Claire Becker shot a career-low 37 to lead Steinbrenner,followed by Steins 40,Bairs 41 and freshman Kelsey Holberts 43. The young team will also have to deal with moving up in classification into 2A-10 with such schools as Freedom and Wharton.The last two years the Warriors were placed in a lower class by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) and played schools with smaller student populations,which is a common practice by the organization to help new programs. Mann said his team likes the challenge of competing against different schools in the district. Well be playing more of the public schools in this area and that helps make some more rivalries for us,Mann said.The school won a bunch of district championships last year and the girls soccer team won states,and its those things that help bring in more interest from the students at the school. Along with that state soccer title, Warriors athlete Alexis Wright won the 2A state 100-meter hurdles championship,and the Steinbrenner boys cross country team finished as the 2A state runner-up last season.Stein said it is an honor to be a part of a young school creating a winning tradition. Its really exciting to be a part of the history of a school,Stein said.To have our name on a district trophy and be there for that winning moment.Warriors out to make tradition of golfing success Steinbrenner senior Sara Bair works on her short game during one of the Warriors recent practices. (Photos by Kyle LoJacono) Michelle Stein has enjoyed taking on a larger leadership role on the Warriors girls golf team along with fellow senior Sara Bair.The Land OLakes boys cross country team won its first meet of the regular season at the Seffner Christian Invitational on Sept.10.The Gators boys took the team title at the 14-school event thanks in part to sophomore Travis Nichols setting a personal record on a 5-kilometer course,finishing in 16:45 to take the individual crown.He was followed shortly by teammates Tyler Stahl,who placed fourth in 17:30,and Jake Poore,who took 10th in 18:32.Land OLakes finished with 64 points,besting second place Mount Dora Bibles 94.The Gators average time at the meet was 18:45.48.Sunshine Athletic Conference (SAC) rival Wesley Chapel came in ninth with 245 points and an average finish of 22:51.84. The Land OLakes girls also participated in the event,coming in 13th among 17 schools.Louisa Cestone,who placed 49th among 110 competitors in 24:57,led the Gators.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21, 2011 12 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comRobert Woodard has been named the girls soccer coach at Steinbrenner High, Warriors athletic director Eddie Henderson announced on Sept. 12. We felt like Robert has the right qualities to lead our successful girls soccer program here at Steinbrenner High School, Henderson said. We had a lot of very qualified people apply for the job, and we were fortunate that Robert was one of them. He brings a strong knowledge of soccer and a passion to coach. The Warriors won the Class 4A state championship last season in the schools second year, defeating Merritt Island 2-1 in overtime in the title game. Steinbrenner finished with a 21-2-2 record in 2010-11 after going 17-1-2 in 200910. Im really happy to be working with such a great group of players, Woodard said. Winning a state championship was a monumental accomplishment. No one has ever won a (soccer) state title in the second year of a program. Woodard has more than 20 years experience coaching and playing soccer. He was an assistant at Jesuit and Bloomingdale before coming to the Lutz-based school. Woodard worked with both the boys and girls programs while at Bloomingdale, where he coached in six state title games, including the Bulls boys state championship seasons in 1993, 1995 and 1998. That experience as an assistant in state final fours has made him accustomed to pressure that comes with high expectations. Obviously there are tremendous expectations (here), but the standards were equally high at Bloomingdale, Woodard said. Training begins in October for the Warriors, but Woodard said he is confident the girls are already doing everything they can to be prepared for the season. These girls already know how to train and play, so its a matter of establishing our identity for the upcoming season, Woodard said. Steinbrenner moves up in classification into Class 5A-District 8, which includes four playoff teams from last season. Besides the Warriors, the alignment includes Class 5A regional finalist Gaither, Class 4A regional finalist Wiregrass Ranch and Freedom, which won the 5A-9 district championship the last two years. Woodard will likely return most of the top contributors from the Warriors championship squad, losing only three seniors to graduation. One of those key returners includes senior forward Cici Gonzalez, who posted 33 goals and 34 assists last season making her the only girls soccer player in Hillsborough County with a 30/30 year. She was also named the All-Laker/All-Lutz News Girls Soccer Player of the Year. Also likely to return is junior forward Alexis Bredeau and her 24 goals and 13 assists from last season, as well as sophomore midfielder Danielle Eule, who had 11 goals and 12 assists last year. Woodard also joined Steinbrenners staff as an exceptional education instructor. He replaces Teresa Patterson, who had coached the Warriors since the school opened in 2009, but resigned the post early this year to start her family. Patterson also coached at Gaither in 2008-09. Steinbrenner will start the 2011-12 season at Jefferson on Monday, Nov. 7 at 7 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches.Woodard picked to coach defending state champs The Steinbrenner girls soccer team after winning the Class 4A state title last season. The Warriors are likely to return forward Cici Gonzalez, who led Steinbrenner with 33 goals and 34 assists in 2010-11. (File photos) Robert Woodard

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 14 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comBishop McLaughlin volleyball player Jess Johnson and her brother Glenn Jr.,a soccer player at Pine View Middle,each were invited to play in international all-star events this summer. Jess,a 5-foot-11 senior outside hitter,was selected as one of 12 high-school-aged players for Team Florida Girls Youth International Team that played in the USA Volleyball High Performance Championships.The event was in Tucson, Ariz.,July 25-30,the same week Glenn Jr. was playing in his own all-star event. Glenn Jr.was picked to play in the Knowsley International Youth Soccer Tournament in Liverpool as part of the Florida Alliance Soccer League All-Star Team. Soccer players were selected from affiliated clubs in Hillsborough,Pasco,Pinellas and Manatee counties. The Land OLakes duo said they enjoy having a sibling that is also talented in sports.It is also fun for their parents,Brenda and Glenn Sr.,but it isnt always easy attending the two all starssporting events. Were basically going in different directions just trying to keep up,Brenda said. Glenn Sr.added with a laugh,There has been a lot of stuff broken in our house from them practicing when they shouldnt.Actually my son wanted to move his bed out of his room so he could have an indoor mini soccer field.It didnt happen. Both parents played high school sports.Brenda was a basketball and softball player, while Glenn Sr.played football and baseball. Glenn Jr.played multiple sports at a very young age,including football,baseball and basketball,but Jess did not take to athletic events as naturally. It was interesting for Jessi because she was a Barbie-doll playing young girl,Glenn Sr. said.She didnt want to play any sports at all.We tried her at every sport,and she didnt like any of them.Volleyball was the last choice,and it worked out.Jess has taken off with volleyball since she started playing at the New Tampa YMCA at age 8.She has been a four-year varsity player in high school,first at Wiregrass Ranch as a freshman,at Land O Lakes as a sophomore and the last two years at Bishop McLaughlin.Jess posted 328 kills and 201 aces last year for the Hurricanes.She has 706 kills and 296 aces while in high school. Jess had to attend two tryouts to make Team Florida.She was one of about 100 girls vying to make the final cut. I was actually surprised because I was cut the previous year,Jess said.I wasnt expecting anything.When I did make it,I was so excited. Team Florida played against similar squads from across the nation and world, coming in ninth overall. It really gives you a good look at what its going to look like when you play in college,Jess said.In college its all the best kids who are playing club. I want to play in college.Playing professional isnt really a goal of mine,but if I got the opportunity it would be really hard to turn down. Jessfavorite player is setter Alisha Glass, who won three straight national titles while at Penn State from 2007-09. Jess wants to major in chemistry and eventually become a pharmacist if professional volleyball isnt in the cards. Glenn Jr.started playing soccer at age 4. His favorite player is Lionel Messi of FC Barcelona. While he was expecting to make the Florida Alliance team,Glenn Jr.said he was very honored when he heard he was picked. It was a great experience,Glenn Jr.said. The game was more physical,and we finished second place in the U13 division. He plays for both Pine View Middle and the Wesley Chapel Flames U13 squad.Glenn Jr.would like to play in college and possibly make a career out of the sport he loves. The siblings have shined athletically,but their parents make sure they do not fall behind in the classroom. School is always the priority,Brenda said.We make sure of that.Glenn Jr.has to get his homework done before practice is even an option.Were pretty firm about that, so I think athletics has helped motivate their academics.

I didnt know the science would count because I took it in middle school,but it did,Reece said.In English it was borderline and I didnt turn in one worksheet.I still think about that B in English,and after that I told myself I wasnt going to get a B again. Reeces academic focus became apparent to teachers early in the school year. Danielle de Gregory teaches Reece Advanced Placement psychology and African-American history.She has only seen his work in the classroom for about a month,but already understands why he has been able to post such a high GPA. The bell rings and he starts his work,de Gregory said.We all have bell work in every class.Mikhail starts his work immediately. He doesnt finish talking with someone or stand in the hall for a few more seconds.The bell rings and he knows its time to get down to business. Reece is also a defensive end and team captain on the Gaither football team. Cowboys coach Jason Stokes said he brings that same down to businessapproach to the gridiron. As soon as we blow the whistle hes all business,Stokes said.When he sees kids in practice not focusing,hell say something before the coaches.Hes one of those special kids you dont get to coach very often. Reece had 12 tackles,two passes defensed,one sack and one forced fumble last football season.Stokes said he believes he will have a huge impact as a senior. He has all the measurables to be a bigtime player,Stokes said.Hes very coachable and puts in the work to get better.Plus he understands concepts very quickly and can see what other teams are trying to do to him. Reece isnt just a brain.He also has leadership qualities as apparent as his intelligence. I met Mikhail last year because as student government advisor I had to pick four juniors to take to the West Point Leadership Conference,de Gregory said.Mikhail was a perfect person because they wanted student leaders and leaders on sports teams, and he is a leader on the football team and academically. When de Gregory was working to find the right juniors to bring on the trip,she asked student government members who they believed should go. They all said Mikhail Reece without thinking about it,de Gregory said.So not only do his teachers rave about him,but the kids think the same way about him. I couldnt find a more upstanding kid than Mikhail Reece.He is a fine young man. Reeces efforts in the classroom and on the football field have one of the most prestigious Ivy League universities interested in him.He was officially given a scholarship offer to play at Yale. When I got the Yale offer,its an honor, but I know that I have the ability because both sides of my family have people whoLEADER,from page 1 POSTAGE IS NEEDED! for the shipment of items generously donated by our community.WILL YOU HELP?

So I know if I dont do well its only because I didnt put in the effort. Reece thanked Gaither offensive line coach Jeff Ditman for helping him get noticed by Yale.Ditman attended the Ivy League school and also played football for the Bulldogs.I think its the perfect fit for him,Ditman said.I have to watch myself because I dont want it to seem like Im pushing him to go there,but looking at it objectively hes a great fit.I know they like him athletically,and I think he can succeed there as a football player.Academically I know its a great opportunity for him,and I think his personality would fit perfectly there.Ill support whatever he does,but it would be good for him and for Yale to have him.While Ditman never directly coached or taught Reece,he has still seen his intelligence shine through on the field.He plays intelligently and he understands what he needs to do and what the other team is trying to do to him,Ditman said.I communicate that to my offensive linemen how much of an assist that is,and of course we have to deal with him in practice. We cant outsmart him.Its hard to fool him because he sees things in a different way.Reece said he is most interested in math classes and would like to become an engineer like his father if things dont work out with football. If I could go to the (NFL),that would be a dream,Reece said.That would be the ultimate goal and after that I could do a lot of other things with my mind if it happens.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21, 2011 16 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Steinbrenner football team recorded the first shutout in the programs three-year history by winning 28-0 at Strawberry Crest on Sept. 16. The victory moves the Warriors to 2-1 on the season, giving them a winning record for the first time ever, but Steinbrenner coach Floyd Graham knows the squad needs to clean up its mistakes to reach its potential. I think we can play a whole lot better than what we did, Graham said. We had a couple of touchdowns called back because of penalties. If were going to compete in our district we cant do that. We had way too many punts, way too many penalties and the penalties came at the wrong time, Graham continued. We gave them an automatic first down on defense when it was third and 18; we ran into the punter and gave them another first down. Those things cannot happen. The Warriors defense has allowed just 24 points in its first three games, music to Grahams ears. Im a big believer in winning on D, Graham said. We expect to win with defense, special teams and ball control. Against Crest the defense played outstanding. Steinbrenner got on the board when running back Kendall Pearcey raced 94 yards for a touchdown on a sweep play. I was really proud of Pearcey because last year he got a concussion against Crest and never really bounced back, Graham said. Then the first time he touched the ball against them this year he goes 94 yards for a touchdown and scores in the same end zone he got the concussion last year. Running back Jake Carroll had scoring catches of 45 and 34 yards from quarterback Curtis Fitch. Wide receiver Zack Jones also had a 5-yard touchdown run. Graham said he was happy with the 2minute offense, as the team was able to complete an 80-yard touchdown drive that began with 1:14 left in the first half to go into the locker room up 14-0.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / LUTZ NEWS September 21,2011 18 SPORTS Volleyball, cheerleading, soccer see gainsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe number of high school students participating in sports has dropped during the last year,according to data released by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) last week.The overall number of participants fell by 2,365 from the 2009-10 school year, down to 245,079 in 2010-11.That decrease happened despite the student population increasing by 4,665 during that same time.Boys participation dropped by 1 percent during that time,down from 140,096 to 139,751.Girls participation dropped 2 percent,down from 107,348 to 105,328. The sport that lost the most student-athletes was softball,which fell by 3,771 participants,or 23 percent,from the 200910 school year.Girls tennis also dropped by 5 percent,down to 4,692 players. Boys cross country and track and field participation dropped by 3 percent each, down to 6,683 and 15,493 respectively. Despite the slight decrease,Pasco County athletic director Phil Bell is optimistic about sports participation in the area. I think the decrease has something to do with the down economy,Bell said.If you look at the totals during the last few years youll find the number is up during that time.It is just down a little bit from last year to this year. FHSAA records show the number of student-athletes has increased every year during the last decade except between the last two years.There were 2,726 more participants in 2010-11 than the 2008-09 school year. The numbers have dropped within the FHSAA despite a record-breaking number of students participating in high school sports nationally.The National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS),of which the FHSAA is a member,reports 7.7 million kids in the United States played some high school sport last school year,or about 55.5 percent of all students at member schools. While the overall increase was not as much as weve seen in the past few years, we are definitely encouraged with these totals given the financial challenges facing our nations high schools,said Bob Gardner, NFHS executive director.The benefits of education-based athletics at the high school level are well-documented,and we encourage communities throughout the nation to keep these doors of opportunity open. The sport that saw the largest increase in participants at FHSAA member schools during the last year was girls volleyball,which added 534 new players,a 4 percent increase. Both boys and girls soccer also saw gains in Florida,with an additional 434 and 419 student-athletes respectively.Cheerleading increased by 403,while football saw a modest increase of 183 players. Lacrosse participation in the state also increased by 687 combined for boys and girls teams,but the sport is not offered through the FHSAA in either Pasco or Hillsborough counties.Bowling had 453 more total student-athletes than two years ago,but it is also not offered in the area.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIn the Florida Shuffleboard Associations (FSA) 83-year history,only one woman has ever scored 1,000 career points.Zephyrhills resident Joan Cook plans to soon make it two. Cook has amassed 895 points since she started playing 16 years ago.Players earn points for finishing near the top of statesanctioned events and Cook is likely to crack the 1,000-point mark in two years,especially considering how dedicated she is to the game. Other than shuffleboard,I dont do a whole lot,Cook sad.Its my life. The Betmar Acres resident takes a break from the sport each summer,but is a regular sight at the RV parks shuffleboard courts. There is something about the strategy,clanging of the discuses and spirited nature of the game that keeps her coming back. I started because I thought Id be good at it,Cook said.As its turned out,I have been. Ive always been competitive,so I want to play something that I can win at.I love sports, and its a good way to stay active. Cook grew up playing baseball and bowling.She was born in Ontario,Canada and first came to Zephyrhills 25 years ago.She never expected to come anywhere near 1,000 points when she first picked up a shuffleboard cue. The goal wasnt to get to 1,000 points, Cook said.It was to get to 200 points to get into the state hall of fame,which I did (in 2003). There is the social part of it,but mostly I love to win.It certainly isnt about the money,because it costs more to travel to the tournaments than you can get if you win. Cook has played in the state masters tournament,for only the top eight men or women in the state,10 times and won it three times.She has also claimed eight national and three international championships. Two of those titles came with Earl Ball, whose 15 national titles are tied for the most all time. We won two mixed doubles national championships in Hendersonville,N.C.,said Ball,who lives in Betmar.We also won the only two mixed doubles state tournaments two years in a row,and no other team has ever done that.So that makes four state championships.Id say we were very successful together. Shes dead serious and a hard worker, Ball added.She expects the very best out of herself.If she isnt playing well,everyone knows about it too.She doesnt accept mediocre. Ball said Cook has benefited from playing in so many mixed doubles events. She comes and plays with and against men often,so her game is tailored to a mans style of play,Ball said. Ball explained women shuffleboard players tend to focus on hitting their opponents discus out of the way.Men usually employ several game plans to win,such as setting up blocks or working to put people in the kitchen,the section of the court that deducts 10 points from their score. That means she has a lot of different ways to win when she plays against women, Ball said.They dont know what to do when she has more tricks up her sleeve. Cook is back on the fast track toward 1,000 points,but personal heartbreak almost derailed her chance.Her husband Richard Cook died in 2009. That was the saddest thing that could have happened to me because he was my biggest supporter,Cook said.I took a year off after that,or I probably would have already had the 1,000 points. Cook said she and her husband played shuffleboard a lot. I actually got him into it,Cook said with a laugh.I had to teach him how to play.We played as a team together in amateurs and never won anything.He was the typical man doing whatever he wanted on the court.Id get so mad at him sometimes because wed have a match won,and then hed do whatever he wanted,and wed lose it in the end.He drove me nuts,but as soon as we were off the court,wed love each other again. Once Cook gets to 1,000 points she said her focus will shift toward helping others improve their own shuffleboard game.

The Lutz Patriots recently sent 21 boxes ($700 postage) filled with stuff for troops serving in the Middle East. They are already taking donated goods and contributions of postage for the next shipment. KVJ is grateful that the Lutz Patriots are there to help show appreciation for these men and women. (Photo by Anthony V. Masella Jr. of www.OurtownFLA.com) LETTERS TO THE EDITOREditor:Due to budget crises at every level of government,our public parks are at serious risk of deferred maintenance,commercial exploitation or permanent shutdown.But we cant afford that kind of savings.A single park closure can cause a ripple effect of damage throughout the community.A closed or ill-maintained park becomes vulnerable to vandalism and crime.A playground covered in graffiti invites more graffiti;a field scattered with trash invites more trash.Reduced property values and less tourism are the inevitable results. In fact,the benefits that parks produce far outweigh their costs.And yet,parks are typically the first and easiest target of budget cutters. Creating and maintaining public parks stimulates the economy. By offering free or inexpensive recreation,parks improve public health and the quality of life for all,regardless of socioeconomic status. Parks also provide measurable environmental benefits:Trees and vegetation absorb pollutants and leave both air and water cleaner. Parks are a public trust.They belong to taxpayers,and taxpayers should have a voice in their management. As a taxpayer,I say thats wrong and it needs to stop.Our parks represent the best of our community and our traditions, and they must be protected.
