There's an English trifle,some chocolate cherry cookies,a Zabaglione and a flourless chocolate cake among the selection of sweets. Each dessert has something in common: It contains some kind of liqueur. Learning about using the liquid spirits in creating desserts is the theme of this particular meeting of the Honeycomb Club. It's a club in the loosest sense of the word. There are no membership fees,no required meetings,no recommendations required to join and no set format. Sometimes it meets at night;other times, on weekends. This club seeks "to enjoy socializing over, learning more about,and sharing good food and cooking among women in the New Tampa/Wesley Chapel community and beyond,"according to Eileen Jones,who founded the club in January. Jones,a self-confessed foodie,thought it would be fun to share her passion with other women who shared her passion. So far,even without much of an outreach,about 50 women mostly in their early 30s to late 50s have joined the club. Jones organizes an event or a meeting and club members let her know if they expect to be there.So far,since the club's inception,members of the group have had all sorts of food adventures. They've gone to a chocolate festival,tasted international foods,sipped Chilean wines and sampled assorted craft beers. They've had a movie night ("Julie and Julia"),shared their thoughts on books about food ("A Tiger in the Kitchen"and "The Sharper Your Knives,The Less You Cry"),have gone on a shopping excursion to Williams-Sonoma and taken a French cooking class at The Rolling Pin in Brandon. The theme of their most recent gathering was using liqueurs in desserts. Each woman came to the meeting bearing a delectable treat she had made.The women gave mini-presentations,sharing what they'd learned about the liqueur and describing the dessert they'd prepared. Afterwards,they shared their sweets and played bunco. In an age where so many groups are formed over the Internet,Jones said she wanted to bring together women to make a personal connection.She put the word out and within months about 50 other likeminded souls stepped forward to become part of the group. The club typically meets twice a month and members are free to come or not come. The a la carte offerings appeal to members of the group,who said they like to come to the things that interest them and skip the other events. As such,there tends to be a different combination of women at each gathering creating an ever-fresh feeling to the group, some members said. Jones plans events on different nights and weekends which allows women who may have a prior commitment on one night a week to join in on others. "We try to incorporate something that everyone will enjoy,"Jones said. The club includes working women,stayat-home moms and women who have retired. Jones works as an office manager at her husband's law office.Another woman is a former restaurateur and another recently retired from her post as a buyer for Pasco County Public Schools. Typically,10 to 15 women turn out for a particular gathering,Jones said. Kristen Heath of New Tampa said when she heard about the group,it immediately sparked her interest."I consider myself a foodie,and I've made my living my life as a cook,"said Heath, who cooks for St.Joseph's Hospital-North. Cooking is her hobby and her passion."I love the variety of the club.There might be a movie.There might be shopping. There might be a game night.We have a book club within the club. "If one thing is not your gig,something next week will be your gig,"she said. Lauri Portz of Saddlebrook joined the group because she thought it would be a good way to meet people. "It just seemed really interesting.The diversity has been really fun,"she said,both in terms of activities and the women who have come to the meetings.Sacha Froelich,who lives in New Tampa, was attending the meeting for the first time."This is exactly what I was looking for," she said,noting she definitely plans to be back. Arlene Zimney decided to get involved because she was approaching retirement and knew she would have more time. "I like the idea that you could choose what you wanted to participate in,without making a long-term commitment,"she said. "If it fits your schedule and it appeals to you,you just tell her (Jones) you're coming and that's it." Zimney say the informal setting was welcoming."Sometimes,when you do cooking things especially with the whole movement on TV people tend to get competitive,or showoffy.It's not that way at all,"she said.For more information about the Honeycomb Club,email eileen.jones@yahoo.com.Women share joy of cooking ...and eating,too Eileen Jones created the Honeycomb Club to give women who enjoy creating in the kitchen a venue for sharing their joy of cooking.

(Photo courtesy of Keystone Community Church)County considers revamped boardBy Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com The newly approved district lines for the Hillsborough commission have not even taken effect yet, but the county is discussing an overhaul of how the board is structured. Currently, the seven-member commission includes four people elected to represent specific geographic areas, and only residents within a district are eligible to vote for that representative. The final three seats are filled by at-large selections picked by the entire county. Commissioner Les Miller, whose District 3 includes most of central Tampa, proposed having five people represent specific areas and two at-large members. “I think this county has grown to a point where we need to make some changes,” said Miller, one of two Democrats on the commission. Miller said there have been two major changes in the county during the last 30 years, when the current structure was established, that make a different setup needed. The first is the explosive population growth in Hillsborough during the last decade. U.S. Census data shows Hillsborough gained 230,278 residents since 2000, up to 1.2 million. Each commissioner that represents a geographic district now speaks for about 307,000 people. “It makes sense to split that up a little bit,” Miller said. “It’s getting to the point where it’s impossible to fairly represent each district.” The other change is an increasing number of Hispanics living within Hillsborough. In 2000, 18 percent of county residents were Hispanic versus 24.9 percent now. Miller said having a fifth zoned district would allow it to be drawn in such a way to make its residents primarily Hispanic, See HELPING, page19 See COUNTY, page19

By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News correspondentRain wasn't the only thing pouring on Wiregrass Ranch's homecoming parade Steinbrenner junior halfback Kendall Pearcey's touchdown total was too. Pearcey's six total touchdowns set a program record for a game and also led the Warriors (5-3) to a 56-0 road victory over the Bulls (08) on Oct.28.The 56 points is also the most ever for the third-year program,breaking the previous mark of 53 set against Riverview earlier this season. The night started out well for Wiregrass Ranch,as the running combination of quarterback Jake Day and freshman fullback Eli Galvin gave the Bulls good field position.But Day's key mistake came on an attempted shovel pass to Galvin.Steinbrenner senior defensive back Andrew Feldhaus broke through the line and intercepted the ball, taking it 57 yards for a touchdown. Even with a steady rain falling, Steinbrenner avoided mistakes and controlled the pace of the game from there. Pearcey received the brunt of the carries because of season-ending injuries to running backs Shaheem Barthel (dislocated elbow) and Jake Carroll (torn ACL),but the losses didn't slow things down for the Warriors against the Bulls. After Steinbrenner's Kyle Bade intercepted a pass late in the first quarter,Pearcey would lead the charge downfield.Following a pair of two 11-yard gains,Pearcey found a gap and went 12 yards untouched for his first touchdown of the night. In the second quarter,Feldhaus recorded his second interception return for a touchdown in the game off of a bad pass from Wiregrass Ranch senior Jamal NunŽz. "Those were my first two interception returns of my career,it felt good,"said Feldhaus. Bade picked off another pass late in the first half to set up Pearcey's second touchdown,stretching the Warrior lead to 27-0 at halftime. Wiregrass Ranch finally completed its first pass of the game in the second half,but would falter into another three and out. Steinbrenner showed no mercy,as senior Zack Jones'pair of 15-yard gains set up Pearcey's third end zone appearance on the ensuing drive. Pearcey would go on to return punts of 61 and 63 yards to the house and added one more rushing touchdown to give him six on the night."Coach said I was going to get the ball tonight and I just did what I had to do,"said Pearcey,who finished with 115 of Steinbrenner's 162 rushing yards in the contest.Wiregrass Ranch coach Jeremy Shobe gave credit to the Warriors'size and ability on defense. "We got worn down in the second half a little bit,"Shobe said."Momentum and things like that made it tough to come back from. They got a good team over there and they're doing a good job.We're young and just trying to stay positive." Steinbrenner will travel to Chamberlain (1-7) on Friday,Nov.4 in its final district game of the season,while the Bulls will look to get into the win column for the first time this year when they travel to Freedom (1-8).

Those wishing to help can bring their food donations to the dealership's showroom. Items that are needed include canned fruits and vegetables,stuffing,mix,rice, beans,canned yams,gravy mix,cookies and Jell-o pudding. Those contributing items also are invited to enter a drawing for a free deluxe vehicle detail valued at $149.95,Cofini said.It's the dealership's way of showing appreciation to the community for taking part in the food drive,she said. The dealership's food drive began on Oct.26 and runs through Friday,Nov.18. Contributors are invited to drop by the dealership's showroom with their donations anytime between 8 a.m.and 8 p.m.,Cofini said. While Heritage Ford's food drive is well under way,Keystone Community Church is just gearing up for its third annual Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Collection Tent. The church will kick off its annual effort by having a Holiday of Hope Tent Blessing at 7 p.m.on Friday,Nov.11. Those attending are asked to bring a canned food item to donate,representing their "first fruits,"which refers to terminology used in the Bible. The event will be at the church,21010 SR 54 in Lutz,near the intersection of US 41 and SR 54. The donation tent will begin operation on Nov.12 and will receive donations through Nov.22.It will reopen on Dec.10 and remain open through Dec.21 to accept additional contributions for Christmas. Florida Blood Services will be on site during the opening day,so those wishing to donate blood will be able to do so. Angela Hobson,the church's outreach coordinator,said the intersection of US 41 and SR 54 is an ideal spot to gather donations because it is in such a central location in Pasco County. She said the founders of Keystone Community Church have had a longstanding relationship with Metropolitan Ministries.When the church was established at such a prime location,it decided it wanted to do its part to help Metropolitan Ministries of Pasco County formerly known as Joining Hands CommunityHELPING,from page 1Mission,Hobson said.The church wants to do what Metropolitan Ministries in downtown Tampa does,at a smaller scale,Hobson said. "We've scheduled dates throughout the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays"to collect donations of food and new toys, Hobson said. After the church collects the items,it delivers them to Metropolitan Ministries, which then distributes the items to families in need. Hobson said she's trying to get additional churches and community organizations to help out by providing volunteers to help at the collection site. First United Methodist Church of Lutz has stepped up,Hobson said.Their volunteers are going to cover a day at the collection tent. Middle school and high school students that need to earn community service hours can pitch in,and so can community groups, the outreach coordinator said.The church is not encouraging groups of young children to help because the site is in a high-traffic area and they don't want to take any chances of anyone getting hurt,Hobson said. Contributors are encouraged to donate canned fruits and vegetables,spaghetti, spaghetti sauce,peanut butter,cereal and other nonperishable items.Frozen turkeys are also welcome because the church has freezers it can use to store them,Hobson said. The church is also collecting gift items, especially gifts for teenagers.Items that are in high demand include board games,jewelry,makeup,hair accessories,footballs, basketballs,DVD and CD players,journals, sketchbooks and gift cards. New items for infants also are in great need,Hobson said. Heritage Ford Boxes of Hope food driveThe drop off location for food items at Heritage Ford is in the vehicle showroom reception area.

Miller,who is black,is currently the only minority on the county commission.His District 3 is designated as a minority district by the federal Voting Rights Act and must maintain at least 58 percent minority population to be in compliance. The Census reports 16.7 percent of Hillsborough's population is black versus 24.9 percent that is Hispanic. Several Hispanic civic groups called for the new county district primarily composed of such voters but were unsuccessful and the new alignment was approved this summer."We're definitely not happy,and we won't be happy until we get some fair representation with a Hispanic member on this board,"said Victor DiMaio,president of the Hillsborough County Hispanic Democratic Caucus.He added his group is planning to formally challenge the new district lines with the U.S.Department of Justice.At-large Commissioner Mark Sharpe said it would have been impossible to have a socalled "Hispanic district"and not break other laws. "We couldn't create four districts while staying in compliance with the Voting Rights Act and keep the districts similar in population,"Sharpe said."A fifth geographic district might have changed that."COUNTY,from page 1The members voted to explore changing the structure by getting public input.Atlarge Commissioner Ken Hagan warned against making any drastic changes so soon after agreeing to the new district lines, which take effect for the 2012 voting cycle. "I just think we need to go cautiously and move slowly on this,"Hagan said. At-large commissioner Kevin Beckner, the only other Democrat on the board,also wants people to remember why the current structure was set up 30 years ago. At that time,three of the then-five commissioners,who were elected only by the people living within a district,were arrested for attempting to sell votes to various groups within their boundaries. The current system allows all residents to vote for four of the seven members, which was thought to ensure that a majority of the commissioners will consider all county residents and not just those within a certain district.Neighboring Pasco County's commission differs in that it has five members who represent certain districts.However, all residents are able to vote for who makes up the board regardless of where they live.In order for the idea to move forward in Hillsborough,five of the commissioners would have to vote for changing the structure.If approved,county residents would have the final say on their ballots next year. The new format could not take effect until 2014.

Currently,11 percent or one in every nine people of the county is Hispanic. Section 203 of the federal Voting Rights Act stipulates that if 5 percent of the voting age population is of a certain ethnicity,then voting material must be published in the native language of that demographic. The U.S.Department of Justice exempted Pasco from that requirement since the county's Hispanic population met or exceeded the minimum literacy rate.Thus,voting materials only have to be published in English. Pasco Supervisor of Elections Brian Corley said this shouldn't change anything drastically,and that it will save the county money. "The only real concern that we had would be from a financial standpoint,"Corley said."We've had to cut our budget 28 percent in the last four years, and it's been quite a challenge as you might imagine. "By implementing this,this would have in essence,would have been an unfunded mandate from the federal government to the tune of $75,000 in additional outlay,plus tens of thousands of dollars each election,"Corley said."It's easier on the wallets of the taxpayers." "We have an obligation,and a legal one at that,to assist all voters," Corley added."We have a long tradition of accommodating all voters,and that won't change." If Pasco did have to publish Spanish voting materials,the only obvious change would have been in amendments,where the Spanish text would have been underneath the English text. "The concern would have been that it would have caused our ballot,at an absolute minimum,to go to two pages and that's where really the cost comes into play," Corley said. With two-plus page ballots,Corley said reconciling all the material that is sent out on absentee ballots could be problematic people may send only the part of the ballot that corresponds to them,i.e.the English part of the ballot or Spanish part of the ballot. The U.S.Department of Justice ruling affects only voting materials published at the county level."However,things that affect statewide, for example (amendments),albeit they will not be bilingual on the ballot,but the division of elections at the state level will be required to provide to the counties,i.e. my office,translated materials for things like voter application,or those proposed amendments, which we will have at a polling place,"Corley said.Hillsborough County was not ruled exempt from Section 203 of the Voting Rights Act, which means it will continue to publish voting materials bilingually. Hillsborough Supervisor of Elections Earl Lennard said there are Spanish-speaking poll workers at voting sites where there is a larger percentage of Hispanic voters.He said ballots for the 2010 primary,published in English and Spanish,cost 23 cents apiece. The county uses Spanish speakers to write the Spanish interpretation of English ballots. "Sometimes that can get pretty tricky because various dialects are different,"Lennard said.But he added,"It's always a concern,but thankfully it has not been an issue." One other big difference between the two counties is that Hillsborough is a preclearance county,meaning Hillsborough has to take certain steps Pasco doesn't. Hillsborough is required to notify the Department of Justice when a polling site may no longer be available in order to switch to a new site.But before Hillsborough can switch to that new site, the county has to be cleared by the Department of Justice. For both counties,voting procedures should stay almost unnoticeably different."It's one word:education,"Corley said. "What you have is,you have an increase in population those folks are educated individuals,which is obviously always a good thing."For more information on voting in Pasco, visit pascovotes.com.For more information on voting in Hillsborough,visit www.votehillsborough.org.Pasco exempt from publishing bilingual voting materials By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIn an attempt to help reduce its $15 billion debt,the U.S.Postal Service (USPS) will increase postage costs beginning Jan.22.The new rate to mail standard first-class,1ounce letters will jump by one penny,up to 45 cents per item.The cost to send a postcard will swell by 3 cents to a total of 32.The biggest increase comes to those who send 1-ounce letters internationally. Such mail bound to Mexico or Canada will cost an extra nickel,up to 85 cents.The same item sent to other countries will be 7 cents more expensive to a total of $1.05. "The overall average price increase is small and is needed to help address our current financial crisis,"U.S.Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe wrote in an email. Donahoe pointed out that the rates for sending such items have not been increased in 2 1/2 years.He added more people using email versus mail has reduced the revenue generated by USPS.Forever stamps will continue to be all that is needed to mail a 1-ounce letter within the United States even if purchased at a lower rate. "The stark reality is that the USPS'business model is broken,"Donahoe wrote.He added the postal service needs a "more flexible business model,"such as cutting service to five days a week,closing post office locations and reducing its workforce. USPS is looking for ways to stay economically viable,but many local people say raising postage rates is not the answer."It used to be 20 cents to send a letter when I was a kid,"said Land O'Lakes resident Thomas Rodriguez."I would send letters to my grandparents who lived in New York and aunts and uncles in other states every week or every other week.Now it would cost a small fortune to do that."Lutz resident Mark Brown said the price of postage also has turned him away from the postal service."I've already stopped mailing basically anything because of how much it costs,"Brown said."Sending something just downtown costs way more than it should.I'd rather drive and drop off a letter if I can't email it."Brown suggested USPS could come up with a tiered system,where mailing locally would require less postage than sending items to the opposite coast.New Tampa resident Christy Smith-Rodgers said Brown's idea did have some merit."It's got to take less money for them to take a letter to Tampa than to Oregon,"Smith-Rodgers said."That's only 20-30 minutes from here I'm sure it's not as simple as that or they would do it,but I think it's worth looking at."Smith-Rodgers said she also does not mail many items anymore because of the cost.She cannot remember the last time she sent someone a letter. "If I have to send a package I send it with FedEx because it gets there faster,"SmithRodgers said."If I'm going to pay to send a box I want it to get there fast." All three said they would rather have the USPS end Saturday delivery instead of increasing rates. "I'd be fine with that,"Rodriguez said. "Most businesses work Monday through Friday,so if they are having problems with money than they should cut a day off.That's better than making us pay more for mail." None favored closing post offices. "I think that would also make more people use the post office less,"Brown said."I mean if the post office near you closes,then I don't think you'd mail things more often."

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comEach month Laura McKnight waits until the third Wednesday for her $668 Social Security check to arrive. For the 74-year-old Zephyrhills resident, getting the monthly check doesn't let her buy something special for herself or indulge in a nice meal out.For McKnight,it is what she uses to pay her electricity and water bills,buy food and make other ends meet. "I'm a widow and my 401(k) went right down the tubes when the economy crashed," said McKnight,who worked for about 20 years as a waitress and another 20 years in customer service."That check is basically all I have to feed myself and stay in my house." McKnight and the 60 million recipients of Social Security will have a little more in those checks starting in January -3.6 percent more to be exact. The additional $24.05 a month in McKnight's check may not seem like a lot,but she said it would make a "world of difference"in how she lives. "Well for one thing I wouldn't have to keep my lights off for the last couple days to make sure I can pay the electric bill when I'm waiting for (the check),"McKnight said."I would be able to go to the Village Inn in town without a friend buying my dinner too." The average Social Security check would get a slightly larger boost of $39 each month, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.Recipients have not seen an enhancement in their payouts during the last two years to account for inflation or an increase in cost of living. McKnight said she remembers the money from the checks going a lot farther with her bills just a couple of years ago. "I only really started having to watch every penny for the last year,year and a half," McKnight said."Before that it was OK.I have neighbors who say the same thing." Betty and Paul Brown,McKnight's neighbors,have a similar story. "Oh we had to get rid of the cable a year ago and only take the car when we really need to so we save the gas,"said Betty,69. "Anything we can do to save a little because Social Security doesn't go as far for us anymore." Paul,who is a registered Republican,said he believes the government should watch what it spends,but not when it comes to Social Security. "So many people rely on that money just to live,"said Paul,71."There is so much money wasted.They should give some back to the people who have worked for years." Paul said he worked in steel manufacturing in Pittsburgh before he and Betty came to Zephyrhills about five years ago. Those who rely on Social Security will have to account for a new cost early next year,as Medicare premiums will be going up by 1 or 2 percent,according to projections from Department of Health and Human Services. "Well I guess as long as the Social Security is going up more than Medicare,then it will be better,"McKnight said,who spends about $50 every month on blood pressure medication.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIt was a different district,different opponents,but in the end the Steinbrenner volleyball team was still the squad holding a championship trophy on Oct.27. The Warriors (23-4) claimed their third consecutive district crown by defeating Freedom 25-13,25-19,25-19 in the Class 7ADistrict 9 finals.Steinbrenner coach Jennifer Graham said this squad is different from the previous two years. "I think we're calm,"Graham said."Last year we were still so new,same with the year before.This year we know we belong in the final four.We just have to play well to get there." Warrior senior libero Cary Anne Bame added,"Our confidence level is 10 times higher.Even last year when we were very confident this is a different level." The win not only gives the third-year program a home match in the regional quarterfinals,but also extends Steinbrenner's record against district opponents to 26-0.The Warriors jumped out to a 12-2 lead in the first set thanks to serving that made it difficult for the Patriots (19-8) to pass the ball."That's something we focus on in practice is effective serving and serving to certain spots,"Bame said."That's what we did tonight and that's how we win." Freedom began to control the serves late in the first set and managed to take a twopoint lead five times in the second set. Patriot coach Kerry Short said the goal was to slow down Steinbrenner's serving game to give her hitters a chance at the net. "If the kids could just somewhat control their serves to keep it where another player can get their hands on it then we're in the ball game,"Short said. The Warriors took a 15-14 lead in the second set off a kill by Rachel Mathison. They would not trail again in the match. Graham said she knew it wasn't going to be easy playing Freedom (19-8).The Patriots were the only 7A-9 team to force four sets against Steinbrenner this season and only the second district opponent that has ever taken a set from the Warriors. "When they won that one from us early in the year it was just like that,"Graham said. "I said to them do you remember this because it's dŽjˆ vu right here.They took it in the regular season,but we said it's not happening tonight." Graham said she was pleased with the way her players put full effort into going after every ball regardless of the score. "We only had two or three free balls all night and that is huge for us,"Graham said. "We've worked on that from Day 1.Attack every ball no matter where it's at." Steinbrenner's frontline was led by junior middle hitter Madison Seuzeneau,who had a career-high 15 kills against Freedom. "I didn't realize I had 15,but to have that many in a very important match for us is really special,"Seuzeneau said."I knew I had to play my best.They put up a good block for me,but I was able to hit around their wall and find the open spots." Senior Miranda Powell recorded nine kills and four aces,while freshman Lauren Heldt and junior Baylee Hooker added four kills.Sophomore setter Casey McLean had 32 assists. Hooker also posted four blocks against Freedom,including two on back-to-back kill attempts in the first set. "All of us are stepping up in the frontline,"Hooker said."We've been getting good blocks against good hitters,especially against their No.2 (Jasmyn Perry)."Perry,a junior transfer from Tampa Bay Tech,did post a team-high nine kills,while sophomore Hannah Kaczmarek added seven to the Patriot attack.Sophomore setter Kelly Schaller contributed 20 assists and two kills.Freedom wanted to win its first district title but was not too disappointed with making the postseason in back-to-back years only the second playoff appearance in program history. "We had a great season and we thought from the start we would be able to advance,"Short said."We have to look at it like it's experience for the future.We're just excited about what the program can be." Steinbrenner defeated tournament host Gaither 25-20,25-15,25-10 in the semifinals on Oct.25.The Warrior frontline attack was led by a trio of players with at least 10 kills. Powell and Seuzeneau each had 11 kills, while Mathison added 10.McLean posted 41 assists,and Bame recorded 11 digs. Freedom defeated Wiregrass Ranch 2513,22-25,25-15,25-20 in the other semifinal. Kaczmarek led the way with 20 kills, while Perry added 14 kills and 13 digs. Freedom also got six kills and 38 assists from Schaller and 17 digs from Kayla Ireland. Grace Olsen had nine kills and 18 digs for the Bulls. Next up for Freedom is a trip to play Clearwater in the regional quarterfinals, while Steinbrenner hosts Seminole.Both matches are on Tuesday,Nov.1 at 7 p.m. By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comThree short years ago,Bishop McLaughlin's volleyball team was the bottom dweller.The Hurricanes scraped by and won two matches in 2008.Bishop McLaughlin stepped out of its own beleaguered shadow and into the volleyball spotlight with a monumental comeback win from two sets down against Carrollwood Day 16-25,21-25,2518,25-14,15-13 on Oct.25.The victory advanced the Hurricanes to the Class 3ADistrict 8 finals and clinched their trip to regionals.But the victory was short lived after a straight-sets loss to Tampa Prep 25-10,25-21, 25-4,on Oct.27 for district crown. "We were done after we beat Carrollwood,"said Bishop McLaughlin coach Douglas Chincha."That was our championship game. That was our game.If the season could have ended right there,it would have been perfect." Chinchar said he noticed his team was a bit off in warm-ups,which led to the lax play in the first set,when the Terrapins shot out to a 24-6 lead before the Hurricanes slimmed the margin of defeat. "They were better than we were,that's what went wrong,"said Chinchar about the No.1 seed Tampa Prep,which reached the 2A final four last season. Hurricane senior outside hitter Jess Johnson echoed her coach's sentiments that her team played knowing there was no dire consequence with the loss. Losing against Tampa Prep means Bishop McLaughlin will have to travel in the first round of regionals,but it's a playoff appearance nonetheless. "We kind of didn't come out our hardest, I guess,"Johnson said."It was really difficult going through that,to see everyone kind of give up." The Hurricanes put on a much closer showing in the second set and took their first lead of the match early,2-1.The two squads traded points,and twice Bishop McLaughlin led by three points.But the Terrapins found their footing and rallied from 15-12 in the second set,to tie it up at 15 before taking the lead for good. "I wish it was different standards to see maybe if we would have played a lot better," Johnson said."It was really frustrating,because I wanted to beat them so bad." Chinchar,who said he was able to turn his team's volleyball tradition around after experiencing it in college and with the "best people in the country,in the world,"has laid the foundation for an up-and-coming powerhouse. "We were probably the third-worst team in the country,"Chinchar said."Now we can play volleyball with anybody." Bishop McLaughlin travels to play Lakeland McKeel Academy on Tuesday,Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. Steinbrenner's Lauren Heldt, No. 12, and Rachel Mathison combine for a block against Freedom's Hannah Kaczmarek in the second set of the district championship match on Oct. 27.

Riehle's 77 was the low round of the day, giving her the individual regional title and sending her to the 1A state meet for the third consecutive year. "It wasn't my best day,"Riehle said."I had a really bad front nine,but it's kind of hard to be mad with the lowest round at regionals." Fellow Spartan Nina Hwang,a senior, nearly joined Riehle in qualifying for states by shooting an 82,but Bushnell South Sumter's Micah Adams posted an 80 late in the day to post the second-lowest score at the event. Riehle is the only area player,boy or girl, from Pasco to qualify for states.In addition, no local county team advanced past regionals. Only the top-two teams and top-two golfers not on an advancing team move on to states. Academy at the Lakes senior Ellen Crowley,who shot a 92,tied for eighth place.Bishop McLaughlin senior Soencer Valdestino carded a 93 to take 10th.As for the boys,Saddlebrook Prep missed out on a trip to states by one stroke for the second time in three years.The Spartans finished with a 325,just behind Crystal River.Senior Tom Ng led the way for Saddlebrook Prep by shooting a 7-over 79, while teammate Michael Richards carded an 80. The 1A girls state meet is at Harbor Bills Country Club in Lady Lake on Nov.1-2.With the season on the line and deep into overtime,Saint Leo University (SLU) men's soccer player Eishun Yoshida came through with his second goal of the year to keep the season alive.Yoshida found the left corner of the net in the 109th minute to beat Sunshine State Conference (SSC) rival the University of Tampa (UT) 1-0 on Oct.26.The victory sends the Lions (9-5-0,4-4 SSC) to the conference tournament and also eliminates the Spartans (3-10-2,3-4-1 SSC) from postseason play.SLU got initial pressure in front of the UT net on the game-winning opportunity,but defenders deflected away a shot attempt. The ball bounced toward Yoshida,who buried a shot from 15-yards out that got past the Spartans'keeper. The Lions closed out the regular season with back-to-back 1-0 wins in double overtime to beat SSC rivals Florida Tech University and UT.SLU goalkeeper McKenzey Scott stopped all seven Spartans'shots on goal to record his ninth win and fourth shutout of the season.The Lions played against Barry University on Nov.1,but results were not available by press time. Kyle LoJacono By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comJimmy Stanger wasn't able to sleep much in the days leading up to regionals,but the Gaither junior golfer said that all changed the night before the tournament. "I'd been staying up all night thinking about regionals,"Stanger said."Just thinking about what I was going to do and then the night before I was asleep by about 8:30.I don't know if that helped,but it couldn't have hurt." Stanger went out and carded a 1-under 71 with five birdies to finish in third place, giving him a berth in the 2A state meet for the first time in his high school career.He was two strokes off the pace of Ridge Community's Sam Horsfield,who shot the low round of the tournament. Stanger,who won the Class 2A-District 9 individual championship the week before, said it was nice to have a good round in regionals considering how close he was to advancing last year.He shot a 75 to finish fifth last year,two strokes away from a state berth. "And my team was two shots away from making states,so it was kind of like if I'd been two strokes better we would have still been playing,"Stanger said."I've thought a lot about how close we were last year." Gaither advanced as a team to regionals, but did not qualify for states. "That was disappointing because I love playing with my teammates,"Stanger said. "I'm home schooled,so playing with my team is really something I look forward too. I wish they were coming with me to states." Only the top-two teams and top-two golfers not on an advancing team move on to states.No other area player or team in Hillsborough County qualified for the final. The 2A boys state tournament is at Mission Inn Resort and Club near Orlando on Nov.1-2. Eishun Yoshida's goal against the University of Tampa gives the Lions a berth in the Sunshine State Conference tournament.

For Pasco-Hernando Community College, the bar is set by the volleyball program inside the fitness gym with coach Kim Whitney leading the way. "From what I've seen from her this year I'm very impressed,"said first-year PHCC athletic director James Johnson."She definitely knows what she's doing and how to get the most out of her players.She has set the standard every other one of our programs are striving for." Whitney became the Conquistador leader eight years ago and has compiled a 226-79 record,including 22-6 through the first 28 matches of this season. Volleyball has been a big part of Whitney's life since she first started playing in sixth grade. "My older sister (Kristen) played and I wanted to give it a try too,"Whitney said. "Certainly glad I tried out." Whitney was primarily an outside hitter, but also played right side and middle hitter as well as libero.She attended Kansas State University,where she still holds the program record for most digs,double-doubles and sets played. Her collegiate playing career earned Whitney a spot on the U.S.Women's National Team in 2001.After college,she played professionally in various leagues in this country and in Spain.She also coached club volleyball and ran summer camps across Florida before taking her first college head coaching at PHCC. Whitney may have been a standout individually,but she concentrates more on getting a team to come together as a coach. "That is always a big thing I focus on is how can every one of my players work to make the team better,"Whitney said."I think it's a good lesson for life because the people who succeed are the ones who don't try to be the superstar all the time.You want to be the contributor to the winning team. You might get the recognition,but the goals need to be how do I make the team better?" Whitney is also very direct in her methods. "She is very down to business,"said sophomore right side hitter and team captain Jessica Imbimbo."She's all about this is what we need to do and this is how we do it. She's never mean.She's never once been the over-aggressive coach yelling at people. She makes you want to be better for the team and for her because of the kind of person she is.You want to win for her." Sophomore outside hitter Torii Koester said Whitney's methods of coaching were a big reason why she chose PHCC. "I tried out for another school,but it just didn't click like the way it did when I tried out for coach Whitney,"Koester said.She then added,"When we came in for the first practice last year I was already learning things.From Day 1 I was getting better because of her.She has such a love for the sport and she pushes you to get the best out of you." During her tenure, Whitney has helped the Conquistadors win three Suncoast Conference titles and the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) Division II national champion in 2010. Whitney was named the Suncoast Conference Coach of the Year in 2005 and 2007.She was also voted the Two-Year College Northeast-Southeast region Coach of the Year by American Volleyball Coaches Association twice for the 2005-06 and 200910 seasons. She has tasted conference and national championships and received numerous coaching honors,but Whitney is ready to bring even more success to PHCC. "I'm a very motivated person,"Whitney said."I can always create new things to motivate me.With what we did last year it makes it harder to get back to that point again. Finding the weaknesses and making the players better.How do we use our strengths,and that's fun for me.It's like a puzzle and you have to figure out how it's all going to work." PHCC will play in the regional finals in North Carolina starting on Nov.5.

Free In-Home Estimates Youll Adore Youll Adore Our Our FLOORS FLOORS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comDespite above-average rainfall this year in the Tampa Bay area,the regional water use board has elected to extend current water restrictions through February.Hillsborough,Pasco and Pinellas counties have received 50.73 inches of rain through Oct.26,almost 6 inches more than the average for an entire year.However,the Southwest Florida Water Management District,commonly called Swiftmud,has voted to keep Phase I restrictions in place for the next few months for all 16 counties it overseas."There were some areas of the district that received heavy rainfall at times,but overall our rainy season was not as productive as we had hoped,"said Lois Sorensen,manager of Swiftmud's demand management program."There were improvements in October, but we are expecting a drier-than-normal winter due to the La Ni–a weather pattern."Sorensen said the region's water supply is in relatively good shape,but added caution is still needed to ensure that remains true."We need to watch conditions closely as the dry season continues and consider stricter measures if water resources or water supply conditions warrant them,"Sorensen said.Phase I is meant to prepare for worsening drought conditions.Residents are also asked to check their irrigation system to see if it is working properly by fixing broken pipes and tilted sprinkler heads. Watering is still limited to two days per week either before 10 a.m.or after 4 p.m. with Phase I restrictions. "However,residents should check with their county or city government to see if they have stricter restrictions,"said Swiftmud spokeswoman Robyn Felix. Swiftmud's governing board will vote again in February to see if the restrictions should be extended. In addition,Swiftmud announced it is cutting up to 150 positions to meet its new budget,which has been slashed by 44 percent from last year.Of the jobs on the chopping block,40 are vacant.The district currently has 768 employees. "We are blessed with smart and talented people,"said Swiftmud executive director Blake Guillory."Unfortunately,we are caught in a situation driven by economic conditions.We need to be as thoughtful and helpful as we can during this process while also serving the taxpayers of our area."For more information on Swiftmud,visit www.WaterMatters.org or call (800) 848-0499.By B.J.JarvisPasco Extension Horticulture Agent No gardener worth his or her salt throws good biodegradable scraps and garden litter into the garbage.While traditional composting may be too difficult or slow to become a part of a gardener's routine,consider a simpler approach by using worms. Vermiculture,the technical term for composting with worms,can turn plant waste into nutritious compost in short order.It is also easy,doesn't have any foul odors and can even be used in apartments.Gardeners can either purchase a worm-composting unit,or make an inexpensive one from a plastic storage bin.Start composting with wet bedding of shredded newspapers,and then add kitchen scraps.One pound of worms can eat about 1 pound of scraps per day.Optimal activity is gained when the bin is kept out of the sun.I keep mine in the garage.As long as there are enough worms to keep up with the rotting material,there is no smell. Worms will eat any biodegradable material but exclude hard-to-digest dairy,meat or oils.A common misconception is that worms should not be fed egg shells. Actually crushed egg shells serve as a bit of grinding grit to aid in digestion.Some worm favorites are melon and tomatoes.A fun experiment is to put a whole overly ripe tomato in the bin and watch the worms eat into the tomato cleaning everything out of the center except for the yellow-orange skin.Nope! Tomato skins are not red;the flesh inside is red giving the tomato the classic coloration.Wetter materials,such as another worm favorite watermelon rind,produces lots of moisture called compost tea.Harvest this very dilute fertilizer often when feeding lots of wet raw materials. On the other hand,drier materials such as corn cobs are very slow to be consumed.Try to provide a variety of materials for a steady food supply.Worms will consume paper bedding so keep adding wetted newspaper to the top of the bin, covering the organic material. Then it is time to harvest some of the composted materials.Called castings,this is the nutrient-rich material that is a terrific soil-improver. A relatively easy way to collect the castings without losing most of the worms in the process is to place new food into one corner of the bin.The worms will naturally gravitate toward the food.Simply harvest from the other side.After harvesting,add a good amount of new shredded,wet bedding and start anew.If you are looking for an easy,cheap way to keep compostable material out of our landfills,and producing material to improve our poor soils,composting with worms may be just the ticket. NATURE NOTES BJ Jarvis is Horticulture Agent and Director of Pasco Extension,a partnership between the University of Florida/IFAS and Pasco County government.You can contact her at Pasco.ifas.ufl.edu or bjjarvis@ufl.edu.

Test results show deaf children have the same potential as their hearing peers to achieve the highest levels of academic success.However,many children have problems in school due to their lack of mastery in a first language as well as substandard reading comprehension skills. To address these educational needs,the DFLA program provides families an opportunity to learn and practice ASL in their homes. Trained deaf mentors go into the home of each family for weekly sessions.The mentoring sessions: --Teach parents ASL skills --Teach parents how to read to their child using ASL --Promote shared reading time between parents and children --Teach deaf and hard of hearing children through ASL activities to prepare them to achieve in school --Support time for parent and child together to reinforce families learning and bonding activities For more information,contact Jeff Thomas of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing Services of Florida at jthomas@deafhhsfla.org or (727) 853-1010.Free exercise classes in OdessaKeystone Presbyterian Church,7509 Van Dyke Road in Odessa,offers free exercise classes each Tuesday at 3 p.m.and each Saturday at 10 a.m.Those in a wheelchair are welcome to attend.For more information, call (813) 920-8552.Medicare health plan seminarPasco Regional Medical Center,13100 Fort King Road in Dade City,will have a seminar about Medicare choices on Nov.4 and Dec.2.For more information,call (352) 5181087.Florida Hospital Zephyrhills gets five starsFlorida Hospital Zephyrhills has earned two 5-star ratings from HealthGrades.The hospital's Heart Institute has received 5-stars for treatment of heart attacks and the whole facility achieved the same for treatment of pulmonary embolisms.

Pieces of clothing that were worn by the patient are given to a memorial bear volunteer who sews the bear out of the cloth.Sometimes when there is extra cloth,the Gulfside volunteers can make a blanket providing a lot of comfort for a small child missing a grandparent. "We have had quite a few requests for multiple bears from one family," said Gulfside's director of bereavement and volunteers Sonia Quinones in a release."We know how special these bears are to a grieving child, teen or adult.The volunteers also make military bears for the survivors of our service men and women. "It is a special kind of work as our volunteers are well aware of the emotional impact these bears have on the survivors, and the family responds by sending the memorial bear volunteer a card of appreciation,"Quinones continued.
