HAIR EXTENSIONS!*hair model Fusion Hair Extensions / Interlocking Hair Extensions MORE SERVICES FROM YOUR FRIENDS AT THE HAIR HOUSE BREAKING DAWNSeveral Twilight Movie StencilsWaterproof Glitter TattoosEYELASH EXTENSIONS NOW OFFEREDBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comIn homes across the region on Thanksgiving,the aroma of roasted turkey will fill the air,as family and friends gather to share a feast and the pleasure of one another's company. Scores of volunteers,however,will be devoting a portion of their holiday to serving or delivering hot meals to those who are less fortunate. So many people signed up to help at the second annual Turkey Gobble Feast at the Dairy Queen in Wesley Chapel that the Rotary Club of Wesley Chapel had to ask some volunteers if they could help deliver toys for Christmas,instead. "It's amazing how many people want to volunteer,"said Jennifer Cofini,one of the Turkey Gobble's organizers. Cofini is customer and community relations manager for Heritage Ford,which is one of the sponsors for the Turkey Gobble. Dan Byrne,who owns the Dairy Queen, said he had hoped that fewer people would need by this time this year but many people are struggling because of the tough economy. The event is aimed at helping not only the unemployed,the underemployed and the homeless,but also shut-ins who have no way of getting a holiday meal,Byrne said. Last year,the goal was to provide 400 meals.This year,the organizers are being more ambitious.They hope to feed 750. When they created the event last year,the idea was to have people dine at the Dairy Queen,where they could share the experience with others,Bryne said. In retrospect,however,organizers decided it would be better to give people a take-out option,so they could enjoy the meals at home,he said.So,this year,diners have a choice.They can enjoy their meal of turkey and all the fixings at Dairy Queen,or take it home. For those who are unable to go to the Dairy Queen,27328 SR 54 in Wesley Chapel, there are volunteers who will deliver the meals,Cofini said. Besides the Rotary Club of Wesley Chapel, Metropolitan Ministries,Dairy Queen and Heritage Ford,other primary event sponsors are the International Hair Co.and Florida Medical Clinic.There's also an anonymous donor who has contributed $2,000 for the Thanksgiving feast and another $2,000 for toys for Metropolitan Ministries,Byrne said. The group has reached out to churches, schools,homeless shelters and others to ask them to spread the word about the Thanksgiving meal. Others across the region also have given out their time and treasure. Atonement Lutheran Church in Wesley Chapel gave out 200 turkeys to families last week during the church's weekly food pantry, said Scott Lindner,church pastor.The New Tampa Rotary Club helped distribute the turkeys and other holiday foods,he said. The church raised money to purchase the turkeys through a special fundraising event. Wolf's Den,a local restaurant,donated all of the food for the breakfast at the fundraiser. The church also received $2,000 in donations from Thrivent Financial for Lutherans,a fraternal organization based in Appleton,Wis. to help pay for the turkeys. In another act of kindness,Heritage Ford created a collection site in its dealership where people brought in enough donations to fill 50 food boxes in its first Boxes of Hope campaign for Metropolitan Ministries of Pasco County.The dealership,at 28739 SR 54 W.,collected 686 pounds of food and donated a turkey for every box it filled. At Wesley Chapel Nissan,28519 Wesley Chapel Blvd.,the dealership's owner,Jay Rosario,its general manager,Glenn Gibson, and its internet director,Troy Stevenson,provided $800 in gift cards to help 47 families in need in the community of Wimauma,through efforts led by Myrtle Lake Baptist Church in Land O'Lakes. Last week,the WWJD Food Outreach was busy gathering donations for Thanksgiving dinner boxes for 225 families.The Chancey Road Christian Church also planned to provide meals on Thanksgiving for the elderly, homeless,lonely and elderly.Reservations for those meals were due by Nov.22. Efforts are ongoing at Keystone Community Church,21010 SR 54,in Land O' Lakes.The church has been collecting food, turkeys and toys for Thanksgiving in its third annual Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Collection Tent. The Thanksgiving drive was set to end on Tuesday,Nov.22.That tent will reopen on Saturday,Dec.10 and will remain open until Wednesday,Dec.21,to accept contributions for Christmas.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA year ago,Wiregrass Ranch cross country runner Nikita Shah could barely finish a 5-kilometer race in less than 20 minutes,a far cry from her performance this year. The junior ran a 17:53.96 at the Class 3A girls state meet on Nov.19 at Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City,the third straight week she has cracked the 18minute mark and the fastest time of any girl from Pasco or Hillsborough counties at the event. The performance was good enough for fourth place overall,the best finish of any Bulls runner in the school's six-year history. Shah's time would have made her the individual state champion in any of the other three class'final race. "I was aiming for fifth place because I was seeded sixth,but fourth is good for me too,"Shah said with a smile. Last year Shah placed 27th at states,ten spots worse than how she ran as a freshman.The slowdown was caused by a bout of anemia that zapped her strength during the second half of her sophomore season. After diagnosing the problem,Shah started taking iron supplements and her speed returned to the point where she brought Wiregrass Ranch its first state medal. "It means everything to me that I can perform like this,"Shah said."Last year it kind of upset me to be getting worse instead of better when I was training hard,but this year it worked out how I wanted.It only means everything in the world to me basically." The trip to claiming that medal wasn't easy for Shah as the anemia basically took away a whole year of training at a high level. "It's very satisfying as a coach to see her run like that after what she's gone through," said Bulls girls coach Don Howard. "Phenomenal run by her going under 18 minutes again.She had a strategy to run out with the lead pack and to make a move at the 2-mile mark.She did exactly what she set out to do." Shah gave credit to Howard for getting her into top shape for the year's biggest race. "My coach trained us to peak at exactly the right time,"Shah said."I did a lot worse than the girls on my level at the beginning of the season,but I knew I was going to peak later. This is the best shape I've ever been in my whole life.I can only thank my coach for that.Without him I couldn't do anything." The Bulls'232 points gave them seventh place,one spot off the best state performance in program history quite a feat considering they had to replace four of their top-seven runners from last year. "I told our principal at the beginning of the season that this was a rebuilding year for us,but the new girls just came on so well that we exceeded what we did last year,"Howard said. Wiregrass Ranch picked up a couple of girls from other sports. Berlin Waters was only a soccer player last school year,but decided to give cross country a try as well.The story was the same for Savannah Goode,who was focusing on cheerleading at this time last year. The Bulls boys took sixth by scoring 200 points,matching their best place at states. "We were pushing to be the best team in school history,"said Wiregrass Ranch boys coach Chris Loth."We were seeded ninth and we thought between sixth and fourth was a possibility.We were less than 10 points out of fourth place,and we're happy with that.Our top three, Ermias,Sam and David,had outstanding races.Ermias finished better than any other boy in school history.Outstanding exclamation mark to the end of a great season." Like the girls,the Bulls boys had to replace four of their top seven. "The kids were out to prove they could overcome that and I think they did,"Loth said. Wiregrass Ranch was led by Ermias Bireda's 15th-place finish in 16:09.1,one spot and 1.64 seconds better than Land O' Lakes'Travis Nichols. "Travis has beaten me most of this season,so this time I really wanted to win,"said Bireda, who placed 67th at the event last year as a sophomore."I feel good and I'm excited for my senior year.I can't wait to get next season going." Nichols,a sophomore,also improved his placing greatly from a year ago when he finished 68th. "It gives me confidence to be somewhat near the top in my second time here,"Nichols said."I was way near the bottom last year." Bulls senior Sam Hippely ran a 16:22.14 to take 26th in his final high school race. "This course has been tough on Sam the last couple years, and he was able to redeem himself today,"Loth said."It put a great end to a great career a hall of fame career." Steinbrenner had a bit of a disappointing day.The squad finished as the 2A state runnerup last year but could muster only 12th place in 3A this year by scoring 308 points.Land O'Lakes'517 points made it 21st. The girls 4A meet included Freedom and Wharton,which took 14th and 20th,respectively.The Patriots were led by senior Ashley Smith's 20:30.98,good enough for 67th overall.Wildcats junior Taylor Griffith took 93rd in 21:07.68. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLand O'Lakes senior Brad Hencke started playing baseball at age 5 as a first baseman and outfielder,but he quickly moved to the pitching mound to be at the center of the action. "I like being in on every play,"Brad said. "I don't like standing around waiting for the ball to get hit to me." The move seems to have worked,as the 6-foot,left-handed starter inked his name to a letter of intent to play at the University of Tampa during the first day of early signing on Nov.9. "I liked the coaches,players and the campus,"said Brad,who plans to study sports management or business."It's a good university and close to home so my parents can come watch me play." Brad's father,Karl Hencke,said he only played baseball for about a year while growing up. "And I wasn't very good at it,"Karl said with a laugh."I don't know where he gets it from,but he has a lot of natural talent." Brad uses a fastball,curveball,slider and changeup.The southpaw has an 11-2 record with a 2.77 ERA and 135 strikeouts during his first three years in high school. Brad and the Gators reached the postseason last year for the first time since 2008 as a district runner-up,but he has grander goals for his senior campaign. "Looking to win districts,"Brad said."It's been a little while since the team has and it would be a nice thing to do." All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches.

The Cowboys won just eight games from 2008-10,a three-year stretch that saw the program lose 23 contest including 10 straight.However,the current Gaither squad has a new level of confidence in its ability to win every time it takes the field. With its 38-30 victory against Durant on Nov.18 in the Class 7A regional quarterfinals,the Cowboys improved their record to 8-3,the most wins in a season since the program posted 10 in 2000.It also marked the first time Gaither has taken a postseason contest since 2007. After defeating Durant,Cowboys senior cornerback Tyler McCollum said it was like the last few years of torment flashed before his eyes. "It feels like my whole mind is just rushing with all the work we've had to put in the last four years to get here,"McCollum said. Gaither junior athlete Shug Oyegunle added,"I can't even explain it in words right now.We've come so far and worked so hard for this day." Oyegunle's first year as a Cowboy was 2009 when the squad went 1-9 and we outscored 335-66.He said the players had been doing the things they needed to win the last few seasons,but the lack of Ws had Gaither junior Shug Oyegunle said the team started winning once the players began believing they could win.

Outgoing chairman Al Higginbotham nominated Mark Sharpe to succeed him and made his opinion very well known. However,the other five commissioners backed Ken Hagan,who officially takes over the role this week with Sandy Murman serving as vice-chairman.It is the fourth time Hagan has held the gavel on the board. After the 5-2 vote,members began talking about changing the process of selecting its chair. Commissioner Les Miller,who was also voted as chaplain for the next year, said the idea is to make the appointments on a regular schedule to take "behind-the-scenes wrangling"out of the picture. The idea is to have the position pass to the member with the most seniority who hasn't served at the post for the next two years. "This would take the politics out of the process,"Miller said."I was shocked to be getting calls a month before this from people asking me to support certain nominations." Murman agreed with Miller's idea, See TRANSITION,page15 See GAITHER,page15 New life for Gaither footballB.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comArmy Sgt.Joel Tavera will be home for the holidays. The highly decorated wounded Army veteran was hailed with a hero's welcome on Saturday,as he rode in a motorcade including Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputies on motorcycles,fire trucks,a military vehicle,biker groups and other vehicles. The procession made its way from the James A.Haley Veterans'Hospital through Lutz,to Grand Hampton,a North Tampa community of upscale,architecturally diverse homes.The entry of the normally gated community was opened on Saturday, Nov.19,to allow in the flow of cars,trucks and motorcycles. Flags lined the roads leading to the war hero's home and people of all ages stood along the sidewalks waving flags and homemade "welcome home"signs as the procession crept through the subdivision. The procession stopped just short of Tavera's new home at 20007 Outpost Point Drive. Hundreds of people were there,on a beautiful,breezy morning,to celebrate with the man who has endured 73 surgeries since March 12,2008,when he was riding in an armored SUV inside the Tallil Airbase in southeastern Iraq.Five rockets struck the armored vehicle,killing three of the soldier's friends. Tavera initially was thought to be dead. He suffered serious head trauma.He lost sight in both of his eyes.He lost his right leg and four fingers on his left hand.He sustained critical burns to 60 percent of his body. At the time of the incident his parents, Jose and Maritza Tavera,were told that their son was the second most severely injured soldier to survive the Iraq war.

Tavera was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star,and,on Saturday morning, Nov.19,he was honored in a homecoming celebration at his new four-bedroom home.The home is valued at $456,580.It was built by William Ryan Homes as part of a nationwide project spearheaded by Building Homes for Heroes,an organization that organizes efforts to build new homes for returning wounded veterans.So far,nine homes have been built and others are in the pipeline.Features in the 4,300-square-foot home include hardwood and ceramic tile floors, granite countertops and stainless appliances. It also has a water softening system for Tavera's sensitive skin,a 13by 26-foot pool with therapy jets and a swimming exercise treadmill and a front door that opens automatically upon Tavera's approach.Tavera was clearly elated during Saturday's event delighted both by the gift of the new home and by the size of the crowd of supporters there to share his big moment."I'm grateful for everybody who took the time from their busy schedules to make it out here,to come celebrate this with my family with both my wonderful caretakers,my mother and my father,"Tavera said. The celebration included plenty of pomp and ceremony.There were bagpipe players, a formal presentation of colors and speeches by dignitaries.Honored guests included high-ranking military officers and top-level staff of the James A.Haley Veterans'Hospital. Kelly Hallman,the Building Homes for Heroes mission leader in Tampa who also is a Hillsborough County firefighter could barely keep his composure as he expressed gratitude for Tavera's service and courage,and spoke of the generosity that resulted in the solder's new home. Andy Pujol,the founder and president of Building Homes for Heroes,and Jeff Thorson,of William Ryan Homes,were also there to salute Tavera's service and welcome him to his new home. When it came Tavera's time to speak,he told the crowd that he heard people referring to him as a hero,but he doesn't see himself in that light. "You are! You are!"a man shouted from the crowd to which the audience broke out in cheers and applause. But Tavera responded:"I got hurt doing my job." The wounded warrior was clearly touched by the generosity shown to him. "I cannot exactly name every single person who was involved in putting this home together,"Tavera said. A banner posted near the house reinforced how difficult it would be to thank every supporter by name.It listed hundreds, if not thousands,of names of people who helped in some way on the project. Some of the biggest contributors were nearly two dozen of the homebuilder's business partners.They donated products, materials and services,totaling about $150,000. Those supporters include: Guardian Protection Services,$50,000 John Madison Landscape,$24,000 Masco Cabinetry,$14,000 Jeffco Construction,$9,000 Aquascape Pools,$8,500 Seagull Lighting,$5,000 Seagull Lighting,$5,600 Prestige Electric,$5,200 Hartshorn Custom,$5,200 William Ryan Homes,a family-owned company,builds in three Tampa Bay locations,include Ashton Oaks in Wesley Chapel,Harbour Isles in Apollo Beach and Grand Hampton.

(Photo by B.C. Manion)WARRIOR,from page 1 saying the way the board's leader is selected has gotten "out of control. "Our process is flawed,"Murman continued."We need to change it." Miller's plan got a 5-2 early approval, with Higginbotham and Victor Crist opposing the motion,meaning it would likely be passed after the required two public hearings to get feedback about the proposed ordinance.Crist and Higginbotham both said they did not disagree with the plan of taking out the politics of the selection process, but wanted more time to think about the options before supporting the measure. Crist,whose District 2 includes all of Lutz,also wondered why anyone would want to push for certain people to be the chair."The chairman has no more influence than any other member of this board,"Crist said."Lobbyists who want certain people in charge don't understand how the commission works." The chair is the board's leader in name and guides its meetings,but has no additional powers. If officially adopted,the new system would go into place for 2012.Sharpe is the one in line to be chairman,with Kevin Beckner serving as vice-chairman.Beckner would take over in 2013,with Murman serving as vice-chairwoman. After those two years,the position would be rotated sequentially through the districts, starting with District 1 in 2014 and moving to District 2 in 2015.Murman currently represents District 1,which includes all of Odessa/Keystone. Commissioners will have the first of two public hearings on the proposal on Wednesday,Dec.7.For additional information on the proposal,call (813) 272-5900 or visit www.hillsboroughcounty.org.

"Now we know we can win," Oyegunle said."It was more the belief that was can win that changed for us. We've worked hard at practice every day.There isn't a day in practice we don't give 110 percent.So we knew we were doing the right things,but once the wins started coming we started to believe and now we're 8-3 and still playing." First-year Gaither coach Jason Stokes agreed with Oyegunle,saying the reputation of players from the area was less than complimentary in past years. "You know they used to say those Northdale and Lutz boys are soft,but not no more,"Stokes said."These kids are finding a way and learning how to win."Stokes has been a big part of creating that belief in the players.He brought a more balanced offense to the Cowboys and started calling the plays after Week 2."We got a new offense and we changed the defense a little bit and then everything just started clicking," McCollum said."We found some new players and everything just clicked. Coach Stokes has really been a big part in everything coming together this year." GAITHER,from page 1

The 51st annual Lutz Arts and Crafts Festival,which moved to Lake Park off Dale Mabry Highway 32 years ago,brings out 20,000-30,000 visitors each year,according to event co-chairwomen Phyllis Hoedt."That makes it second in Hillsborough to the Gasparilla Art Festival,"Hoedt said. "It's also one of the largest in all of Florida, and we have vendors from all across the state,and even out of state,who sell their wares."Jack Beverland is one of the 250 vendors who will set up shop at the two-day event. The San Antonio resident sells artwork at various shows across central Florida,but never misses the Lutz festival. "It's probably the best attended one I do all year,"said Beverland,who first came to the event in 2009."The weather is usually good,and people come from all over to see what's for sale." Beverland said his specialty is making glow-in-the-dark artwork. Hoedt said there will be many different kinds of artists at the festival,along with holiday gifts,clothes,jewelry and crafts."Just about anything you could want," said Hoedt."It's a great place to do your Christmas or holiday shopping for everyone on your list because there's something for everyone.If you need something for someone you'll likely find it,and the great thing is the artists there are the people who made it."There is also festival-style food like funnel cakes and kettle corn,along with a variety for more hearty offerings like barbecue and grilled favorites. Wilma Stewart,of New Tampa,first learned about the festival about seven years ago when she moved from Atlanta. "I was in Lutz and I saw a really big sign about this craft show,"Stewart said."I love crafts and festivals,so I was in. I was expecting a couple of booths and some food, but the first time I saw row after row I was really amazed something like this exists right here.It looks more like something from a big city like Chicago or New York City." The event,which is organized by the Lutz-Land O'Lakes Woman's Club,is always the first weekend in December. "The festival started at the Old Lutz School on (US) 41 and later moved to the train depot across the street,"said Shirley Simmons,event co-chairwoman."It moved to Lake Park to make room for more booths and people." Hoedt said the mission of the festival includes three goals. "One is to have a festival that is open to the public for their enjoyment,"Hoedt said. "Two is to allow artists to show,be judged and sell their works.Three,and most important to our club,is to make money that is given right back to the community." Hoedt said money raised by selling booths spaces is reinvested back into the community by giving grants to local Boy and Girl Scout troops,the Civil Air Patrol, youth scholarships,the Lutz volunteer fire department and the Lutz Branch Library, among other places. Anyone interested in buying a booth space should call Hoedt at (813) 949-1937 or Simmons at (813) 949-7060. Admission is free for the festival itself,but parking is $2 per vehicle.That money does not go to anyone involved with the event, but rather to the Hillsborough parks department for use of the site.

But the company Bauer Foundation Corp. is known throughout the world and recently landed a $106 million contract to install a barrier wall at Center Hill Dam in Cookeville,Tenn. While other companies are giving employees pink slips or holding steady on their staffing,Bauer is hiring. The company especially needs engineers,said Charles Puccini,president and CEO of the company in Odessa.He's especially interested in people who can think through solutions. Winning contracts,Puccini said,means figuring out ways to do things faster,better and cheaper than they were done in the past. "We have to outthink our competitors every day and be better every day,"Puccini said."If we re-tender the same idea we had last time,we lose." When they fail to secure a contract, Puccini tells his employees:"We were outthought by our competitors.We didn't think about it enough." He also reminds them they always have to be looking to the future.Something that used to be acceptable may not be good enough today,he said. In other words,"In 2002,it was a great idea.It's going to be 2012 in a couple of days.You have to be improving every day," he said. The company leader places paramount importance on an educated work force. That's why his company offers robust internship and training programs. "You pull the economy out through technology and the only way you get technology is through education,"Puccini said. The company is constantly looking for ways to improve its equipment,to get better results in the field,he said. The company began as Coastal Caisson in the 1970s and was purchased by its parent company,Bauer Spezialtiefbau GmbH, based in Schrobenhausen,Germany,in the 1990s. Bauer is a leader in the execution of complex excavation pits,ground improvement,deep foundations and in-ground walls, utilizing the most up-to-date equipment and installation techniques. Loren Winckler,who has been with the company for 20 years,said he explains what his company does this way:"I work for a construction company,but you don't see anything we build because everything we build is under the ground.Once we get to the ground level,we're done.It's all foundation work. "We're in the beginning processes of building a bridge,building a building.We're the first ones on the scene,the first ones on the job,"he said. Winckler handles much of the company's training program. "Drilling into the ground is a very specialized field,"he said,noting interns at the company generally spend six weeks learning about various facets of the company. "What our company makes is the equivalent of a tunnel-boring machine,but we go vertical instead of horizontal,"Puccini said. So,instead of tunneling through an area and pushing away the debris,it drills down. "We have to lift up all of this rock chips and cuttings it's just tons of materials," Puccini said."This is not easy.This requires lots of research and development." Puccini said the company chose to move to Odessa because it had outgrown its site on Ulmerton Road. It wanted a spot that had ample room to accommodate growth,was on a trucking route and was in an area with good roads that was not heavily developed. Pasco County,near the Hillsborough County line,fit the bill.

FACEBOOK.COM/SHOPSMALL 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS November 23,2011 4 By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comTony Angel is gearing up to open a new gymnastics studio in Lutz,and he's planning to introduce an element he doesn't believe exists at any other gym in the Tampa Bay area. It's not a new gymnastics apparatus,or a new gymnastic technique. He's installing two cameras that will film the classes so parents who are out and about can go online to watch their children performing their gymnastic routines. "As far as I know,in the Tampa area,we're going to be the first and only one to do it," Angel said. His gym,Angel's Gymnastics,will initially be offering competitive classes only for girls but will house recreational classes for boys as well. Coming out of high school,Angel never thought he would work with kids. After 21 years of coaching gymnastics however,his latest business venture centers on them. This is after he was bought out at Premiere Gymnastics and decided to start his own gym. The Barrington,Ill.native lost heart in owning a gym for a little while,but said it was always in the back of his mind that sooner or later he would start up again. Angel said the gym will start out just training girls competitively,noting the gym is recognized by USAG the feeder system for the Olympics. "Our team is going to be USA competitive,but the classes are going to be set up so that when they decide to go to team if they do decide,they don't have to they will be training the exact same skills and the same routines." Angel stressed a fun environment,knowing gymnastics sometimes has a penchant for being serious and hardnosed. "Let these kids enjoy being good at gymnastics,"he said. For that reason,Angel plans to train up to a certain level of gymnast,but he won't be coaching Olympians pointing out how that takes resources and time that his gym doesn't have in its infancy. "Down the road, would we have elites? Yes.Right now,my main concern is happy,healthy kids and maybe some college scholarships." With an exhaustive resume under his belt, including coaching more than 200 state champions by his count,Angel said he embraces the opportunity to run a gym the way he envisions. "You're wearing all the hats,"Angel said about being in charge."Definitely it's a little harder,but if you just stay diligent,you can get it all done." He said the location of his new business is a perfect launching point. "There are so many people in this area. It's amazing,"Angel said. He pointed out how although he is in Lutz,clients from Tampa and Wesley Chapel can easily commute to his locale.Not to mention,the fact that he's in a shopping plaza allows parents to drop off their kids and run errands while their child is vaulting, bouncing,twisting and turning. Angel said that pending a fire marshal investigation,to make sure everything is in order and set the occupancy limit,his gym would be open for preregistration on Nov. 21.He hopes to be open by early December."Because times are hard,I'm keeping my prices lower than everyone else,"said Angel,who also is shaving off 10 percent for law enforcement,fire fighters and any active military to "give them a little break in life."Angel's Gymnastics is located at 18437 US 41 N.For more information,call the gym at (813) 909-9510 or visit angelsgymnastics.com.Angel's Gymnastics vaults into gym studio business Tony Angel said his gym has top-notch equipment. Pending a fire marshal investigation to set the occupancy limit and make sure everything is fine, Angel's Gymnastics should open up by early December, with preregistration already available. (Photos by Eugenio Torrens) Tony Angel talks on the phone sorting out plans to get his gym up and running. While Angel has coached gymnastics for 21 years, he said being the sole person in charge is a bit more demanding.

New Valve BreakthroughThe Edwards-Sapien valve is a new medical breakthrough that will be released early next year. It will make it possible for doctors to perform surgeries on narrowed aortic valves by going through the groin instead of performing open-heart surgery. "Before the Edwards-Sapien technology, people who had a narrowed aortic valve were required to undergo open-heart surgery, where the surgeon removed the old valve and replaced it with a metal or pig valve," said Dr. Gilbert Postler. "Now with this new technology, we will be able to insert the folded Edwards-Sapien valve through a small tube in the groin, where it will be deployed inside the old valve, sparing the patient major open heart surgery." "The procedure is a lot less invasive," said Dr. Postler. "Normally when people undergo open-heart surgery, they are stuck in the hospital for two to three weeks. This technology will have people home in a day or two." Medical SpotlightAsk the Doctor What is angina? When coronary arteries fill with fat deposits, blood flow is obstructed. This means the heart muscle lacks oxygen and nutrients, which can cause the heart to scream for help with pain, also known as angina. What are its symptoms? Classic symptoms are pressure sensations in the middle of the chest that radiate pain to the neck or left arm. Rest or nitroglycerin helps relieve these symptoms. However, many patients have symptoms that are also found in other diseases, such as shortness of breath or fatigue. How is it diagnosed? Astress test can identify underlying problems. In the classic stress test, a patient is asked to walk on a treadmill. For patient who cannot exercise on a treadmill, there are options such as employing chemicals to simulate exercise. During this test, nuclear cameras take pictures of blood flow in the heart. How is it treated? Many medications help relieve chest pain. Often a heart catheterization is required. This inserts small catheters in the heart arteries and a stent placed in the area of the obstruction to improve blood flow and relieve pain. Untreated angina can lead to a heart attack. Who's whoFortunately for his patients, growing up in a family of bankers did not sway Dr. Gilbert Postler's decision to become an interventional cardiologist. Born in Germany, Dr. Postler came to the United States in 1993 to complete his medical certifications at the University of South Florida. After graduating in 2002, he joined Florida Medical Clinic and continues to impact the lives of many patients by treating their cardiac issues. Dr. Postler isn't all work and no play. He makes time for pick-up soccer games, a sport he's played his whole life. He also likes to relax with his favorite German beer, Tucher, and watch his favorite soccer team, Munich. Dr. Postler married his wife Anna in 2006. The couple met in medical school at the University of Miami. Anna is an anesthesiologist. For patient convenience, Dr. Postler practices at both the Wesley Chapel and Land O' Lakes offices of Florida Medical Clinic. Call to schedule an appointment at (813) 884-0923.

Well not exactly,but collard greens and other vegetables do help keep Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) at bay,according to Gilbert Postler,M.D.,interventional cardiologist at Florida Medical Clinic. "People don't eat enough green veggies,"Dr.Postler said. "And green is good.Eating green leafy vegetables such as kale, spinach and collard greens, while maintaining a balanced diet,helps to avoid PVD." PVD is caused by fat buildup in the arteries of the arms,legs and neck.Smoking is the biggest risk factor.Classic symptoms are pain and numbness of the legs. "When PVD affects the legs, pain can radiate up the leg even after walking just a short distance,"Dr.Postler said."Rest will relieve symptoms,but left untreated,PVD in its worst form can lead to ulceration of the feet or amputation of the limbs." Dr.Postler compares his work to that of a plumber because he cleans up blockages in the arterial system.Using balloons,stents and special drills,he removes plaque from patients'arteries, opens up obstructions and restores blood flow. When PVD occurs in the carotid arteries,it causes obstruction in the blood flow to the brain,which often leads to a stroke."We insert stents in the arteries to restore blood flow to prevent future strokes from happening,"Dr.Postler said. If PVD is present in the abdomen,a dilatation of the aorta the major artery of the body can lead to rupture of the aorta and sudden death. "Stenting these aortic aneurysms will prevent unexpected ruptures,"Dr.Postler said. Daily stress also plays a role in the condition. "There are different kind of stress your heart deals with,"said Dr.Postler."There is physiologic stress,such as walking up a hill, or psychological stress,which could be caused by getting fired from your job. "Stress results in adrenaline release,which makes the heart beat faster and increases blood pressure.This results in your heart working a lot harder than it should.Stress increases the likelihood of blockages and resulting pain." Although PVD can be severe and life threatening,the condition can be managed or even conquered by adopting a healthy lifestyle and the use of innovative technology.

Chalk Talk wants to help you share the news when students win awards, teachers do neat projects, someone gets promoted or retires, or you are planning a play, festival or other fun event.Send school news to bcmanion@cnewspubs.com STRATEGIES TO HELP SCHOOL VOLUNTEERSPaddy Eger,author of Educating America 101:Strategies for Adult Assistants in K-8, suggests a number of strategies aimed at helping classroom volunteers be effective. Here are some of the tips that she offers: --If you are volunteering and have questions for the teacher,schedule a time to talk with the teacher when students are not present.Also,if the teacher has asked you to lead an activity,read the directions and gather supplies before you visit the classroom.Do not expect the teacher to lead you through the exercise. --Establish a consistent meeting place:If your group will meet regularly,ask the teacher before your first visit to help you establish a place that you can use every time you visit.Nothing kills an activity faster than spending valuable time looking for a place to work. --Choose your seat wisely:Don't sit at one end of a rectangular table.Sitting in the middle seat along one side allows you to see all of the students and reach out to touch their work.It also makes you part of the group,and allows you to speak in a softer voice.For round tables,sit so you not the students face nearby tables or other distractions. --To help children become active listeners,don't repeat questions:If the student says he doesn't understand the question, ask him to repeat what he thinks he heard. If the student is still confused,ask another student to rephrase the question.Once again,ask the first student to repeat what he just heard. --Be prepared for a change in plans:Have a "pocket activity"ready in case a schedule change means you'll have less time with the children.This is a simple game,such as a math or spelling game,or a book or news article that can be started or stopped at any time without losing its value.SAINT LEO UNIVERSITY CHRISTMAS CONCERTSaint Leo University is inviting the public to its annual musical program,"A Saint Leo Christmas"slated for 7 p.m.Tuesday, Nov.29 in the student community center.

BATTERIES IN STOCK CELEBRATING OUR FIRST YEAR IN THIS LOCATION*Most cars / Expires 12-22-11 $1799*Oil, Lube & Filter $1000*Tire Rotation Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Southwest Florida Water Management District is offering six ways to prepare for holiday meals and parties without running up your water bill. “It is especially important to conserve water during the holidays, as they fall within our traditional dry season,” said district spokeswoman Robyn Felix in a release. “We can all make a difference by incorporating a few simple tips into our routines.” During the holidays, water plays a role in everything from food preparation to the clean-up process. Here’s how to incorporate water conservation into your holiday preparations:  Defrost frozen foods in the refrigerator or the microwave instead of running hot water over them.  Rinse vegetables and fruit in a sink or pan filled with water instead of under running water. This water can then be reused to water houseplants. A running faucet can use up to four gallons per minute.  When washing dishes by hand, fill one sink or basin with soapy water and fill the rinsing sink one-third to one-half full. Avoid letting the water run continuously in the rinsing sink.  Select the proper size pans for cooking. Large pans require more cooking water than may be necessary.  Scrape food scraps into the garbage can or a composting bin rather than rinsing them into the sink’s garbage disposal, which uses up to 4.5 gallons of water per minute.  Run dishwashers only when fully loaded. Dishwashers use between seven and 12 gallons per load.For more water conservation tips and the current water restrictions, visit the district’s website, www.WaterMatters.org/conservation/.Saving water during the holidays Laker/Lutz News Staff Report For anyone planning to travel for the holidays, it’s never too early to start planning. The following tips will help ensure arriving on time to help carve the turkey, open gifts on Christmas morning or bring in a cheerful New Year.Flying for the holidays Avoid peak travel days by booking flights at least two days before and after Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s.  Secure a nonstop flight or one with the fewest connections and stops.  Book morning flights, as those tend to have fewer delays than afternoon departures.  Check in early for holiday flights — two hours before departure for domestic flights and three hours before international ones.  Don’t wrap holiday gifts and place them in checked luggage. Send them by postal mail in advance of your flight.Driving for the holidays Get the vehicle inspected by a qualified mechanic before travel to make sure brakes, battery, fluid levels, tire pressure, light bulbs and other equipment are all in top working condition.  Pack emergency equipment including first-aid kit, flashlight, blanket, water, snacks, flares, jumper cables, tire chains and ice scraper if traveling to cold-weather states.  Lock valuables and gifts in the car trunk. For more information or more consumer advice, residents should call (813) 903-3430 or visit the Hillsborough County Consumer Protection website and click on monthly newsletters. Safe and smart holiday travel

This is the only argument they have? To compare a snake and bird to human life around this trapped evacuation extension road? And to try and stop controlled growth for our business owners and people who live in this county? Questions.WHY has it REALLY taken 10 plus years to get national representatives and national news organizations watching what is going to happen now? It is truly time to end this stalled evacuation road,hear the majority who are trapped in communities near Ridge Road,work,own businesses in this county and hear the leaders and commissioners who have spoken up about this and want to see Army Corp issue this permit now.This road is needed.A major evacuation road that will save lives if we are hit with a hurricane, fire or flood. There cannot be any more excuses to hold up this permit for Ridge Road extension.This should be a priority to Army Corp and get this major evacuation road that will save human life,and so many more positive things,permitted now.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS November 23,2011 16 Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA year ago,Wiregrass Ranch cross country runner Nikita Shah could barely finish a 5-kilometer race in less than 20 minutes,a far cry from her performance this year. The junior ran a 17:53.96 at the Class 3A girls state meet on Nov.19 at Little Everglades Ranch in Dade City,the third straight week she has cracked the 18minute mark and the fastest time of any girl from Pasco or Hillsborough counties at the event. The performance was good enough for fourth place overall,the best finish of any Bulls runner in the school's six-year history. Shah's time would have made her the individual state champion in any of the other three class'final race. "I was aiming for fifth place because I was seeded sixth,but fourth is good for me too,"Shah said with a smile. Last year Shah placed 27th at states,ten spots worse than how she ran as a freshman.The slowdown was caused by a bout of anemia that zapped her strength during the second half of her sophomore season. After diagnosing the problem,Shah started taking iron supplements and her speed returned to the point where she brought Wiregrass Ranch its first state medal. "It means everything to me that I can perform like this,"Shah said."Last year it kind of upset me to be getting worse instead of better when I was training hard,but this year it worked out how I wanted.It only means everything in the world to me basically." The trip to claiming that medal wasn't easy for Shah as the anemia basically took away a whole year of training at a high level. "It's very satisfying as a coach to see her run like that after what she's gone through," said Bulls girls coach Don Howard. "Phenomenal run by her going under 18 minutes again.She had a strategy to run out with the lead pack and to make a move at the 2-mile mark.She did exactly what she set out to do."Shah gave credit to Howard for getting her into top shape for the year's biggest race."My coach trained us to peak at exactly the right time,"Shah said."I did a lot worse than the girls on my level at the beginning of the season,but I knew I was going to peak later. This is the best shape I've ever been in my whole life.I can only thank my coach for that.Without him I couldn't do anything." The Bulls'232 points gave them seventh place,one spot off the best state performance in program history quite a feat considering they had to replace four of their top-seven runners from last year. "I told our principal at the beginning of the season that this was a rebuilding year for us,but the new girls just came on so well that we exceeded what we did last year,"Howard said. Wiregrass Ranch picked up a couple of girls from other sports. Berlin Waters was only a soccer player last school year,but decided to give cross country a try as well.The story was the same for Savannah Goode,who was focusing on cheerleading at this time last year. The Bulls boys took sixth by scoring 200 points,matching their best place at states. "We were pushing to be the best team in school history,"said Wiregrass Ranch boys coach Chris Loth."We were seeded ninth and we thought between sixth and fourth was a possibility. We were less than 10 points out of fourth place,and we're happy with that.Our top three,Ermias, Sam and David,had outstanding races.Ermias finished better than any other boy in school history. Outstanding exclamation mark to the end of a great season." Like the girls,the Bulls boys had to replace four of their top seven. "The kids were out to prove they could overcome that and I think they did,"Loth said. Wiregrass Ranch was led by Ermias Bireda's 15th-place finish in 16:09.1,one spot and 1.64 seconds better than Land O' Lakes'Travis Nichols."Travis has beaten me most of this season, so this time I really wanted to win,"said Bireda,who placed 67th at the event last year as a sophomore."I feel good and I'm excited for my senior year.I can't wait to get next season going."Nichols,a sophomore,also improved his placing greatly from a year ago when he finished 68th. "It gives me confidence to be somewhat near the top in my second time here,"Nichols said."I was way near the bottom last year." Bulls senior Sam Hippely ran a 16:22.14 to take 26th in his final high school race. "This course has been tough on Sam the last couple years, and he was able to redeem himself today,"Loth said."It put a great end to a great career a hall of fame career." Steinbrenner had a bit of a disappointing day.The squad finished as the 2A state runnerup last year but could muster only 12th place in 3A this year by scoring 308 points.Land O' Lakes'517 points made it 21st. The girls 4A meet included Freedom and Wharton,which took 14th and 20th,respectively.The Patriots were led by senior Ashley Smith's 20:30.98,good enough for 67th overall.Wildcats junior Taylor Griffith took 93rd in 21:07.68. The U14 TCU Horned Frogs won the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association flag football championship on Oct.30. The squad finished with a 9-0-1 record while outscoring its opponents 154-18.TCU defeated the Georgia Bulldogs 21-0 to claim the title.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither football team found itself trailing 23-7 at halftime against Durant in the Class 7A regional quarterfinals on Nov. 18 but fought back to win the program's first playoff game since 2007. The Cowboys (8-3) scored 31 secondhalf points off three touchdown passes by quarterback Alex McGough,a 19-yard run by Shug Oyegunle and a 27-yard field goal by Dalton Gilson to win 38-30. "At halftime we told them listen you're champions,but you're just not playing like it,'"said first-year Gaither coach Jason Stokes."Throw everything else out the window.You just have to execute.'We told them do you want to go home and turn your gear in tonight,or do want to keep playing?'" Stokes'words hit home as the Cowboys were a different squad coming out of the locker room,picking up 305 yards of total offense after halftime. Gaither's defense sacked Cougars (74) quarterback Nick Fabrizio four times and picked off three of his passes.Safety Eddie Pastrana took the first interception 35 yards for his squad's first points, while the final two found the hands of cornerback Tyler McCollum. McCollum said he wasn't expecting to pick off two passes against Durant's run-heavy read-option offense,but was happy there were a few attempts to his side of the field. "If they were going to throw my way I was going to do everything I could to pick them off and make them pay,"McCollum said. McCollum's first interception came on the Cougars' drive after the Cowboys had taken a 31-30 lead,giving them the ball with 3:49 remaining in the game.Durant had one timeout left and Gaither would have been able to run out the clock with one first down,but Oyegunle decided a onepoint victory was too close. "When I saw Tyler get that pick,I knew it was show time,"Oyegunle said."I told Alex get me the ball and I'd get in the end zone." McGough did find him on the fifth play of the drive, connecting on a screen pass that Oyegunle took 62 yards for the game's final points. "When I got the ball in my hands I was just thinking touchdown touchdown touchdown,"Oyegunle said. The Cowboys started the game slowly. Stokes said the start was partially due to arriving late after their bus got stuck in traffic, forcing them to cut warm-ups short. "We basically came out the bus,touched our toes and played football,"Stokes said. "We were totally out of whack." Gaither was also dealt an early blow on its second possession when McGough was forced out of the game after Durant defender Chris Heald put a big hit on his throwing arm.The Wesley Chapel High transfer sat out much of the first half,but came back to record 235 yards on 14-of-29 passing,including scoring strikes of 6 and 59 yards to Demarcus Sexil and Carlo Perello,respectively. Oyegunle filled in for McGough,going 3of-8 passing for 72 yards.He also added 107 yards on four catches,24 yards on four carries and another 27 on a kick return. "It was a total effort,"Stokes said."We got some good runbacks on special teams,got some key picks and we've got some bigtime players on offense.When it comes down to it,when the rubber meets the road,big-time players make big-time plays in big-time games." The Cowboys travel to district rival Tampa Bay Tech on Friday,Nov.25 at 7:30 p.m.for the regional semifinals.The Titans defeated Gaither 17-14 on Nov.4 on a lastminute field goal. By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comSeven seconds. That's how much time was left when Ocala Vanguard missed a game-winning 44yard field goal extending Sunlake's postseason ride into the second round of the Class 6A playoffs with a 22-21 win. "The only thing I was saying was please God make him miss,please God don't let this go through the uprights,"said senior quarterback Cameron Stoltz. The Seahawks (10-1) converted a twopoint conversion after an offsides penalty against the Knights (7-4) on the point-aftertouchdown attempt to take the one-point lead.Senior Jerome Samuels vaulted over the middle for the game's final points as Sunlake held on to write a new chapter in its history-making season. "When they jumped,it was one of those deals I'm either going to be the hero,or I'm going to be the biggest jerk in the world," said coach Bill Browning,who has been with the Seahawks since their inception in 2007.Browning said his son,Brandon,asked him Did you come here to win or tie?'after Vanguard committed the penalty. "So dad listened to son's advice," Browning said. The two-point conversion came after an eight-play,98-yard drive sparked by another game-changing call. The Knights had the ball at the Sunlake 1,but were stuffed on fourth and goal to keep it a one-score game. "Everything was running through my head,all I was thinking was just seek and destroy,"said senior lineman Nate McCoole, who was in on the defensive stop. Vanguard opened the game intent on running the ball.P.J.Williams,a Florida State University commit,ran 59 yards to put his team up 7-0. Sunlake went three and out,but Vanguard fumbled the ball on its next series. The Seahawks took over at the Knights' 28-yard line.Stoltz lobbed a pass to Jamal Jones in the corner of the end zone to tie the game at 7-7. The Knights responded emphatically when Jamarius Quary ran the ensuing kickoff back about 14 yards before pitching it to Williams,who took it 61 yards for his second score of the night. Vanguard had the ball to start the second quarter,but the offense sputtered and the punting team was brought out.The snap was low and the punter had to scramble before trying to get off a kick that was blocked setting up Sunlake at the Knights'30. Stoltz found Eddie Burgos on a 25-yard touchdown strike to tie the game 14-14. Vanguard kept pounding the Sunlake defense in the second half,scoring on a nine-play drive without attempting a pass to go up 21-14. Another Seahawks series ended with a punt to give Vanguard the ball with 2:26 left in the third.The Knights ate up five and a half minutes before Sunlake's defense slammed the door shut on fourth and goal from its own 1. Sunlake didn't squander its next chance. The Seahawks had been unable to generate much offense when starting on their own side of the field,but all that went out the window after they drove methodically 98 yards. Then Stoltz found a matchup he knew he could exploit a linebacker on Rashaud Daniels.The result:a 44-yard pass down the sideline.One play later,Stoltz snuck it in himself. The routine point after brought the game-changing drama when the Knights were flagged for being offsides.And while some may have questioned the two-point call,it didn't seem like there was a Seahawk that didn't believe in Browning's play call. "My mindset was coach Browning,you a crazy old man,"Burgos said."You crazy,but I love coach Browning so much,and I trust coach Browning." The conversion put Sunlake up,but it didn't win the game right there.Vanguard got the ball back two more times,including one last stab at winning with 17 seconds left. The Knights were near midfield,when quarterback Cody Miller found Williams who streaked to the Sunlake 27,setting up a field goal with 7 seconds left that sailed wide left. "I'm going to enjoy this for the rest of my life,"Daniels said.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS November 23,2011 19 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLast season,the Gaither girls soccer team snapped a five-year playoff drought and made the regional finals for just the second time in the school's 27-year history. The deep postseason run not only gave the returning Cowboys (3-3-1) confidence in their ability to compete at the highest level,but also a hunger to take another step forward with the program. "I know the girls are ready for the season,"said third-year Gaither coach Trevor Scott."We had a really good summer and had at least 20 girls at every session.They're ready to show they can compete with anyone." The Cowboys won at Venice 2-1 and defeated Gulf Coast 1-0 in double overtime at home in the regional tournament before losing on the road to Seminole 3-0 just one win away from the Class 5A final four. "It was tough to have the season end there,but it was good for the girls who are coming back because they know what it's like,"Scott said."They won a regional game on the road,they played really tough teams, so I think that experience will help this year." Senior midfielder Kaycee McGuire said being so close to states pushed everyone to work harder in the offseason. "It was really amazing because we were the underdogs,"said McGuire,who led Gaither with 10 assists last year."To get so far when we weren't supposed to felt really good.We were all really sad when the season ended. You look back and see that we were right there.It's just like come on, couldn't we have won just one more game? Just one more step." Scott,a 2004 Gaither graduate,said that attitude of expecting to win is something that was not present a year ago. "They had a lot of doubts coming into the season because it was a long time since 2004,"Scott said."They had a new coach each year for a couple years,so I think it helped to have the same voice pushing them.They got to work together and that consistency helped,but a lot of it came down to the seniors pushing each other and the younger players wanting to win for them." Gaither will have to find players to fill in for four graduating seniors,including Lauren Moore and Carly Cepelak who are playing at the University of Tampa and Lincoln Memorial University,respectively,on soccer scholarships. Moore led the Cowboys with 13 goals while adding five assists.Cepelak added one score,but was a big member of the Gaither defense. The Cowboys also lose Caity Chandler, who played almost every position on the field last season while adding 10 goals and two assists. "We also lost Jessica Carter at goalkeeper, who didn't play in goal as much,but she was always ready for practice and pushed Amanda High as our starter,"Scott said."You need to have players like that to keep everyone else working to get better. You can't ever replace everything a player does,but I can see new girls stepping up.They're doing things I didn't see them do last year on the field and in leadership roles." High,a sophomore,returns as the Gaither starting goalkeeper.She had 77 saves and eight shutouts while allowing just seven goals last season. "I was only a freshman,so I had no idea what to expect for all of the year,"High said. "It was really cool to set some high standards to live up to." Gaither's defense was a strength last year, as the team allowed only nine goals on the season.Scott said he will lean on defenders Angela Anderson,a junior,and senior Lexy Bubley,who transferred from Steinbrenner. Forward Taylor Meek's 12 goals last season are the most of any returning player.The sophomore said she feels she needs to "step up"her game as a sophomore.She also added playing alongside Moore helped her become a better player. "She worked really hard and she tried to make sure we worked well together,"Meek said."She'd get me the ball to score and I'd do the same back.She was always so nice and tried to work well with everyone." Gaither plays at Chamberlain on Tuesday, Nov.29 at 6 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches.Building a girls soccer powerhouse at Gaither Gaither sophomore forward Taylor Meek scored 12 goals last season, more than any returning Cowboy. (Photos by Kyle LoJacono) Cowboys junior defender Angela Anderson will likely be one of the squad's major contributors on the backline this season. Junior Jessica Lawless will be leaned on more as an offensive threat for Gaither this season.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS November 23,2011 20 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIf national signing day was a game, Wharton High would have been named the area champion this year. Four Wildcats student-athletes inked their names to letters of intent to compete in college during the first day of early signing on Nov.9.Monica Santos will play softball at the University of South Florida (USF),tennis player Steven Sepulveda will attend Reinhardt University,Tyler Liberatore will wrestle at Arizona State University and Stephany Brown is headed to Palm Beach Atlantic University to play volleyball.Monica SantosMonica Santos cannot remember a time when she wasn't playing softball. "It's all I know and I've been doing it all my life,"Santos said."I started playing baseball when I was 3,and I've had a bat and a ball in my hand since I was 2." The third baseman has been a fan of USF for almost as long. "I watched the softball games there when I was 6 and just fell in love with the program,"said Santos,who is interested in sociology."I can't see myself going anywhere else.It's been my dream to go to USF, so I'm just living my dream right now." Santos posted a .368 batting average with 18 runs scored and nine RBI in 2011. She also showed plate discipline by striking out only four times in 71 plate appearances while drawing 12 walks. The senior's play drew attention from USF as well as from the Puerto Rican national team.She plays on the commonwealth's women's squad,most recently competing at the 2011 Pan American Games in Mexico. "It was an amazing experience,"Santos said."I even played against team USA.Their coach is Ken Eriksen,who will be my coach at USF,so that was strange and fun at the same time."Steven SepulvedaSteven Sepulveda is a relative newcomer to tennis,picking up the sport about five years ago."I played soccer for a long time and I was definitely a lot better at tennis,"Sepulveda said.Despite his natural talent for the game, he was unable to make Wharton's team his freshman year.He used the disappointment to fuel his desire to get better. "I definitely practiced a lot more after that happened,"Sepulveda said."It told me I have to go back and figure something out if I want to play in high school." Whatever he found in those practice sessions helped him make the Wildcats team in 2010,the year the squad brought home the Class 4A state championship.Wharton made it back to the state tournament the following season. "This year I want to have a good season and I'm training four days a week right now to be ready when we start,"Sepulveda said. "We want to try and get back to states." Sepulveda plans to study business at Reinhardt.He added the school is a good fit for him because it has a low number of students per class,which is an environment that helps him learn.Tyler LiberatoreTyler Liberatore has been a constant at the wrestling finals since his freshman season,finishing as the state champion the last three years. He transferred to Wharton for his senior year after spending the previous three at Brandon High,but he has no plans to slow down as a Wildcat. "I'm out to pin everybody all season," said Liberatore,who was 15-0 last year. "Nothing less than that." Liberatore started wrestling around age 8.He said he always wanted to be a part of a Division I program,and decided Arizona State was the right place quickly."I've gone to some of the wrestling camps and after meeting their coaches I found their style goes well with mine,"said Liberatore,who is undecided on his major."Plus I'm a Florida boy,so I love warm weather.It's one of the few good wrestling programs that is in warm weather,plus it's a good academic school."Now that the first part of his dream has come true,Liberator can put the second phase into action. "It feels great,but I'm definitely not content with just wrestling there,"Liberatore said."I'm definitely playing to win some national titles while I'm there.It was always the goal to get to a Division I school and then win national titles."Stephany BrownOne look at Stephany Brown would not lead many to think she is one of the most imposing middle hitters in Florida. The 6-foot-2 Brown always has a smile on her face and said she is friendly to everyone off the court that is. "When I get in front of the net my mentality changes,"Brown said."I want to block everything that comes my way." Brown's 1.3 blocks per set is tied for 10th most in the state this season.She also had 157 kills and 29 aces. Brown,who will study sports medicine, started playing volleyball in eighth-grade. "I played basically every sport you can think of and volleyball is the one I have the most passion for,"Brown said."I also run track,but volleyball just called my name more." Brown's play helped Wharton go 19-4 this season,the first time the program has won double digit matches in five years. The Wildcats came up one match short of earning a berth in the playoffs,but Brown said the memories of her senior campaign are nothing but positive. "It was a really exciting season,"Brown said."Our outcome obviously wasn't what we were hoping for,but we became so close and the relationship I have with each of my teammates is something I won't forget."

Winter clothes.A lot of winter clothes. Johnson signed her letter of intent on Nov.9 to play volleyball for Norfolk State University,a Division I school in Virginia. Bishop McLaughlin's outside hitter had other colleges in mind,but her official visit in September sealed the deal. "I just fell in love with the school completely,so I knew that that's where I wanted to go,"said Johnson,who plans to study chemistry. Johnson said she is excited and ready for the next chapter of her life,both on and off the court. "I think I could really help them,and their coach seems to think that I could help them,so I'm really excited to go,"Johnson said. Johnson was an integral part of the Hurricanes'record-setting season,piling up 403 kills this season an average of 5.1 per game and putting her at more than 1,000 kills for her high school career.Bishop McLaughlin set program record 16 wins this year,capped off with the first playoff appearance. Hurricanes coach Doug Chinchar has known Johnson since she was 9 years old, and coached her for two years at Bishop McLaughlin.He said the match between Johnson and the Spartans made sense. "I think she's going to be a perfect fit just because of the way their school runs," Chinchar said."It's not the Ohio State where you're going 100 billion miles an hour and they hold that scholarship over your head and say Hey if you don't do this,you're done." He added the signing makes Johnson the first girl to sign a Division I scholarship in Hurricanes history. "I hope that people in the Land O'Lakes area notice this,"Chinchar said."They have a young lady going to college for free to play volleyball.Beautiful." By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentNearly four years ago,Steinbrenner seniors Chris Williams and Gerald Bautista began their high school baseball careers at Sickles.On Nov.9,the two signed letters of intent to continue their careers at the college level. While it may seem like just a pair of signings on a day where a slew of schools hosted such ceremonies,these Warriors' story goes back to when they were sophomores."It's a blessing,because two years ago we made a pact that we would sign with the same school or a different school on the same day,"said Bautista,a third baseman who signed with the University of Florida.Williams,a pitcher who signed with St. Leo University,says their friendship extends way back to childhood. "Me and Gerald have been best friends probably since we were 7,"Williams said. "We just grew up together and always played hard together." When Bautista put on his blue-and-orange Florida cap,a large grin appeared on his face and he nodded at his father,Danny Bautista,a 15-year MLB player. "I'm ready to go,"said an emotional Bautista."I'm just blessed and I just thank God and my family,especially my dad.He's been there through the good and bad situations." Warriors coach John Crumbley has seen the two grow since they came to the school in 2009. "They're both serious about the game of baseball,"Crumbley said."They both work hard,they're good leaders on the field and hopefully we'll ride that to the next level this year."
