813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS December 14, 2011 2 Angel Boy gets some libation after the tough 12-mile competition.A muddy time was had by all Six-year-old Alexander Barnes, of Brooksville, gives the keg throw a try with the help of volunteer Justin Lutz, of St. Petersburg, at the Tough Mudder Event held on Dec. 3-4 at the Little Everglades Ranch. It must be difficult to balance the cheese while running a 12mile course that was designed by the British Special Forces. Tough Mudder competitors end their run getting wet and running through lines filled with 10,000 volts of electricity.Little Everglades Ranch hosted about 10,000 Tough Mudders Dec. 3-4, and no one went home with clean sneakers. A Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile obstacle course that combines fun and camaraderie with a test of strength, stamina and grit. The course was designed by British Special Forces, but Tough Mudders don’t take themselves too seriously. A festival atmosphere surrounds the event, with some participants camping out the whole weekend and kiosks offering mudder tattoos. There are awards for costumes and toughest mullet and Mohawk. The post-party is almost as big a draw as the race. Tough Mudder raises funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. For more information on Tough Mudder e-mail info@toughmudder.com. To get over 12-foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push. Early in the competition, runners must jump into a large container filled with colored ice cube water.

Dale Mabry, Lutz(Chateau Professional Park) Protection from stray animalsThe Pasco County Health Department reminds residents to be mindful of stray animals that can carry rabies.Raccoons,bats,foxes and skunks commonly carry the virus.An animal with rabies could infect other wildlife or domestic animals that have not been vaccinated against the disease. "Rabies is a disease of the nervous system that can cause paralysis and is fatal to warm blooded animals and humans,"said County Health Officer Dr.David Johnson."Take steps to protect you and your family from unfamiliar animals." The virus is spread through saliva,and humans may become infected through a bite wound,scratch or exposure of a fresh cut to saliva of a rabid animal. Animals with rabies may show strange behavior.They may be aggressive,attacking for no apparent reason,or act very tame.They may drool a lot due to difficulty swallowing. They also may stagger or become paralyzed. The Pasco County Health Department recommends residents and visitors always follow these guidelines to help prevent exposure to rabid animals: --Avoid direct contact with unfamiliar animals.Stray cats and dogs may not have been vaccinated against rabies. --Do not handle or feed wild animals or unintentionally attract them with open garbage cans or litter. --Never adopt wild animals or bring them into your home.It is both dangerous and illegal to do so. --Do not try to nurse sick wild animals to health.It is common to want to rescue and nurse a hurt wild animal,but that animal may have rabies.Only qualified personnel,such as state wildlife officers and licensed wildlife rehabilitators,are legally allowed to handle these animals. --Do not use your hands to break up a fight between animals.Even your own pet can bite you when it is trying to defend itself while fighting another animal. --If someone is bitten by any animal,seek care promptly.Wash the wound thoroughly with soap and water.Go to a doctor or hospital for medical attention immediately. --Call the Pasco County Animal Services at (727) 834-3216,(813) 929-1212 or (352) 5215194 to report animal bites or scratches and for information on stray dogs and cats. --Call the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission at (863) 648-3203 for concerns about wild animals. For more information on protecting your family from stray animals and the steps you can take to prevent the spread of rabies visit www.cdc.gov/rabies.Gynecologic cancer support groupA free monthly support group for ovarian and gynecologic cancer patients,survivors and family members will meet at St.Joseph's Hospital,3001 W.Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd.in Tampa,on Tuesday,Dec.20 and Jan.17 from 6-8 p.m.Guest speakers will present information on a variety of topics,and educational information is also provided.To register,call (813) 443-3078.Prostate cancer support groupAmerican Cancer Society's Hope Lodge, 12810 USF Magnolia Drive in Tampa,hosts an educational program from the American Cancer Society to support men with prostate cancer or those close to them.The group meets the fourth Thursday of each month.For more information,call (800) 227-9954.Care for newborn babies classThe newborn care class at St.Joseph's Women's Hospital,3030 W.Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.Blvd.in Tampa,is designed for firsttime parents,although experienced moms and dads are welcome,too.Topics presented include normal growth and development, how to soothe a fretful baby,safe and healthy sleep practices,infant nutrition,infant sleep patterns and infant massage.Other topics may arise based on the interests of the group.The next class is on Thursday,Jan.5 from 6-9:30 p.m.and on Thursday,Jan.19 from 6-9 p.m.To sign up,call (813) 443-3078.Prepared childbirth classesA class to help expectant moms and their partners become educated,active participants in the childbirth experience is available at St.Joseph's Women's Hospital,3030 W.Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.Blvd.in Tampa.A hospital tour is included to get better acquainted with the hospital.The cost is $70.For dates and more information,call (813) 443-3078.Infant and child CPR classesLearn how to perform lifesaving CPR and choking rescue on infants and children at St. Joseph's Women's Hospital,3030 W.Dr.Martin Luther King Jr.Blvd.in Tampa.The techniques follow American Heart Association guidelines.

"I knew this was going to be our best team yet since I've been here,but I didn't think we'd be this good,"said senior midfielder Taylor Tippett,who has been on the team since it started four years ago."Our biggest accomplishment was we started 3-0 and now we've won a lot more games. We've all been working very hard and improved over the years." Tippett,who will be inking her name to a letter of intent with the University of South Florida on National Signing Day in February,said the players didn't do anything new preparing for the year. "I don't know why it's different,"Tippett said."Maybe it's just having played together for several years with the same coach.We were all excited coming into the season and more confident than in the past."That "same coach"is Donna Holyman,who started the program in 2008,the same year the current group of Patriots seniors were freshmen.Her squad is senior laden,with seven of the 15 players being 12th-graders."We have a really good group of seniors who have been here since the program started,"Holyman said."They know what's expected of them and have done a really good job of leading the rest of the girls.We also have some newcomers and even an eighth-grader playing too." One of those seniors is goalkeeper Maddie Peek."It's really surreal being here from the very beginning and seeing how much progress we've had,"Peek said,who has allowed five goals all season.Peek had some experience at goalkeeper before high school,but had played forward for CDS until the Patriots lost their starter last season. She filled in and now enjoys the position so much she wants to stick with it. "Maybe it's the drama that I like so much,"said Peek."I gave coach kind of a joking ultimatum over the summer saying I would not play unless I'm the keeper." Also contributing to CDS'lockdown defense is sophomore Alex Schweitzer. "We haven't had this so far and it's a great feeling to know we have a strong defense,"Schweitzer said."People talk about us now and that's kind of a first."Schweitzer is a defender,but she has also recorded nine goals and three assists.Tippett has tallied 13 goals and five assists.Eighthgrader midfielder Carli Gauthier has added a trio of scores while adding four assists.The players and coaches are enjoying the fast start to the season,but such success is also offering challenges they have never faced before. "One thing I've never had to deal with before was keeping these players grounded,"Holyman said."That's going to be our big thing is to not expect to stroll onto the field and win without trying." The Patriots got a bit of a reality check in a recent game against Seffner Christian,a squad with a just two wins. "We need to make sure we don't get cocky," Tippett said."We played a game against Seffner and we went in thinking we were going to win easy. We played awful and I think it's because we thought we were going to win.It was a really close game.So we have to stay confident, but not too confident and play our hardest in every single game." Schweitzer added,"I think we needed that.If we didn't we might have thought we were better than we were.I think we realized we need to keep trying our hardest."The road to a playoff spot will not get much easier,as CDS has two playoff teams from last year in its same district,Class 1A-District 7,including Bishop McLaughlin and Tampa Prep. The Hurricanes made regionals for the first time in program history in 2011,while the Terrapins made the Class 2A final four.The 1A-7 tournament is at Tampa Prep Jan.17-20.The championship game is on Friday,Jan.20 at 7 p.m. The Patriots played Cambridge Christian on Dec.12,but results were not available by press time.CDS hosts Seffner Christian on Saturday,Jan.5 at 4 p.m. CDS girls soccer roster1/18 Maddie Peek GK Sr. 2 Samantha Erickson D Sr. 3 Lauren Meaney MF Fr. 5 Christine Ortoll MF/F Sr. 6 Elliza Guta D/MF Fr. 7 Jaden Edwards MF/F Jr. 8 Rebecca Liller F Jr. 9 Halia Smalczewski F Sr. 10 Alex Schweitzer D So. 11 Taylor Tippett MF Sr. 12 Sarah Eldin F Fr. 13 Marin Guta MF Sr. 14 Katie Takeuchi D Sr. 15 Lauren Raab MF Fr. 16 Carli Gauthier MF 8thCarrollwood Day takes aim at first playoff appearance CDS midfielder Carli Gauthier has scored three goals and recorded four assists despite being only an eighth-grader.

(Photo by Gretchen Zayas)Taylor Dec learns about life from cheering, coachingBy Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com Seven years ago Taylor Dec made a seemingly minor decision that has since made her into the person she is today. It was in fifth grade that Taylor first became a cheerleader. She started with the Lutz Chiefs program, progressed to a competitive club called the Florida Wildcats in middle school and moved on to cheering at Gaither High. “I think it’s really shaped me as a person,” Taylor said of cheering. “It’s given me a lot more confidence than I would have if I did any other sport. … It teaches you how to work hard and take what other people say, like their constructive criticism, to make you better.” Taylor feels so strongly about cheering that she started coaching the Chiefs midgets team, for girls ages 11-13, last year as a way to teach kids about the activity she loves so much. “I really enjoyed coaching and coming up with the routines,” Taylor said. “I volunteered to do it and I felt like I could give really good advice to the younger girls.”Gifts from cheerleading A visit from the North PoleMichael Lilove was among the crowd of children who showed up for Santa’s Workshop at the Land O’ Lakes Recreation Complex Saturday, Dec. 10.

Manion bcman i on@cnewspubs.com The Pasco Alliance of Community Associations has weighed in on the proposed Ridge Road extension, throwing the weight of the thousands of people it represents behind the project. Members of the organization overwhelmingly supported the submission of a letter signaling their support of the project to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The alliance represents more than 70 homeowner and community associations across Pasco County. Members of the group support the extension of a limited access Ridge Road, to connect where it now ends in New Port Richey and extend it over to US 41 in Land O’ Lakes. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers has denied the permit for the extension, citing environmental issues. But the agency is accepting additional public comment on the project through Dec. 28. That’s why Jim Flateau, president of the Pasco Alliance of Community Associations (PACA), wanted to bring the issue to members of the organization at its December monthly meeting in Land O’ Lakes.

Five Top Reasons To Shop Locally This Holiday Season 1.)Three-Times The Economic Impact When you buy from a locally owned business, more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses. In fact, the local economic impact is three times that compared to the same dollars spent at national chains. 2.)Create More Good Jobs Small local businesses are the area's largest employer and often offer better wages and benefits than national companies. 3.)Non Profits Receive Greater Support Non-profit organizations receive an average of 250% more from small businesses than they do from large corporations. 4.)Customer Service Is Better Local businesses hire local people who take the time to get to know their customers because they live in the same community. This translates into superior customer service because we strive to be courteous and attentive to those we care most about, especially our neighbors. 5.)Unique Businesses Create Character & Prosperity Where we shop, eat and have fun make our community home. Our one-of-a-kind businesses add character and prosperity to own homes in Lutz, Land O'Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Zephyrhills and Dade City. Thank you for supporting the locally owned businesses that advertise in The Laker and Lutz News. They offer unique services and products that make our communities a better place to live. The Laker /Lutz Newswww.cnewspubs.com 813.909.2800 pupils,including Alex Zayas who started cheering last year for the Chiefs. "She always kept us together,"said Zayas, a seventh-grader at Martinez Middle."She was one of those good coaches who never made any of us cry or anything.She was really determined to make us better.Most of the girls had never cheered before,but by the end of the year we were all a lot better." The Chiefs were unable to win a competition during Taylor's first year coaching in 2010,but the squad claimed championships in all three of the events it participated in this season.The first was the Best of the Bay, where Lutz was recognized for having the best choreography. The Chiefs followed that up with titles at the Gulf Coast Cheer Classic and the Tampa Bay Youth Football League's cheer offs. "It was so exciting to see them win three events,"Taylor said."I was so proud of them because they've worked really hard all year. This year's group of girls was so motivated and talented.I just hope they continue cheering because they're really good at it." Zayas said she plans to continue cheering at least in part because of what Taylor taught her the last two years. "She was always there for us,"Zayas said. "We always liked going to practice because of her." Taylor said this is her final year as a coach and cheerleader.She could not pick out one favorite memory from her time cheering because there have been so many highlights. "I've loved competing in all the events for club cheering,"Taylor said."I love competing.For high school I've loved cheering at all the games.They've all been fun.For coaching it was just seeing them get better each practice and seeing them win this year." Taylor put in about 16 hours per week between Gaither's squad and coaching, amazing considering she was not too thrilled with the idea of signing up for cheerleading seven years ago. "At first I didn't really want to cheer," Taylor said."My friends had to talk me into it because they were cheering for Lutz.Then I just fell in love with it.It's so fast paced and you can always improve." Taylor's mother,Lori,said she has seen a great deal of growth in her daughter since she started cheering. "The biggest thing I've seen in her develop is her leadership skills,"Lori said."Being able to take directions and help whatever team she is on get to their goals.That's not to say she's had a leadership role on every team she's been on,but her leadership in life has emerged. "As a parent you hope your child can find something that they love so much that they want to do whether they aren't feeling good or tired or whatever,"Lori continued. "You want them to find something they can be that passionate about and for Taylor it was cheerleading." Lori coached with her daughter,but Taylor led all the practices and choreographed the performances. "It was really very touching,"said Lori of watching Taylor coach."My husband has always been a coach and I've been in some support position,but watching her turn into a coach was really heartwarming. I've seen her develop so much patience from coaching through mentoring these girls.It's been a great experience and all the girls really love her.That's been really rewarding to me." It was also rewarding for all of Taylor'sCHEERLEADING,from page 1 "We live in a county that only has two roads that transverse the width of the county,[SR] 52 and [SR] 54.We also know that we live in an area that could be hit by a hurricane or a tropical storm." Donna Cardellino,a West Pasco resident who supports the road extension,said she wrote her first letter supporting the project back in 2007 when she saw a neighbor's home catch on fire and she watched the flames grow larger and larger. She is frustrated by the lack of progress and the corps'resistance. "They're not being smart about this," Cardellino said."Human safety should be at the top of the list." State Sen.Mike Fasano is also a staunch advocate for the project."I fully support the extension of Ridge Road.I have since Day 1. At the very least,the corps should make a determination,so the county will know where it stands and can proceed to appeal the decision,if they choose to do so,Fasano said. Tracy Hurst,project manager for the corps of engineers,could not be reached for comment. Public comment on the project can be submitted to the U.S.Army Corps of Engineers,10117 Princess Palm Ave.,Suite 120,Tampa,33610. the project because a portion of the alignment goes through about 60 acres that had previously been set aside to mitigate wetlands that were affected by the Suncoast Parkway project. "Our county's population increased by 119,932 residents,or 35 percent,between the 2000 and 2010 census,severely increasing the pressure on our traffic patterns, including those in west and central Pasco," Flateau states in a Dec.9 letter addressed to Tracy Hurst,a project manager with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.Flateau notes that the proposed extension would affect 59 acres within the 6,000-acre Serenova Preserve,an area set aside to offset wetland acres that were taken for the construction of the Suncoast Parkway.Although the county wants to take those acres,it is setting aside about 1,100 acres to make up for that,Flateau said. "As long as the county is setting aside acreage,is looking at the changes that it's making,being honest about always setting aside far more than the taking,I think that protects the environment and that it's ecologically responsible." The improvement is needed,Flateau told the group.EXTENSION,from page 1 Gift drive benefits patients'familiesThe families of patients who were hospitalized in the past year benefitted from St. Joseph's Hospital's annual holiday gift drive.

It must be difficult to balance the cheese while running a 12mile course that was designed by the British Special Forces. Tough Mudder competitors end their run getting wet and running through lines filled with 10,000 volts of electricity.Little Everglades Ranch hosted about 10,000 Tough Mudders Dec. 3-4, and no one went home with clean sneakers. A Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile obstacle course that combines fun and camaraderie with a test of strength, stamina and grit. The course was designed by British Special Forces, but Tough Mudders don’t take themselves too seriously. A festival atmosphere surrounds the event, with some participants camping out the whole weekend and kiosks offering mudder tattoos. There are awards for costumes and toughest mullet and Mohawk. The post-party is almost as big a draw as the race. Tough Mudder raises funds for the Wounded Warrior Project. For more information on Tough Mudder e-mail info@toughmudder.com. To get over 12-foot walls and through underground mud tunnels, you’ll need teammates to give you a boost and a push.

By B.C.Manionbc.manion@cnewspubs.comAl Giovannelli was just 6 years old when he fried his first egg,and that was the beginning of a lifelong passion for cooking. As a young boy,he sat at the kitchen table,while his mother, Maria,schooled him in the art of Italian cooking. "I made everything.Bread.Cookies. Homemade meatballs.Homemade sausage," he said."When we needed tomatoes or parsley or basil,we went to the backyard in the garden and we picked it." His sister,Susan Meschino,also grew up learning the ins and outs of Italian cuisine. She remembers that they had to be sure to pick the right kind of tomatoes for the sauce.Some kinds of tomatoes simply have too much water in them to be good in sauce,she explained. While the siblings were learning how to make Italian foods,Al's wife,Janette,was growing up in a household where her mother,Juanita Valentin,was teaching her how to create Spanish dishes. And now,Al and his wife and his sister are combining their talents to offer a wide selection of breakfast,lunch and dessert items at Simple and Delicious Bakery & CafŽ,24832 SR 54 in Lutz. The restaurant,which is about 1,000 square feet,has a simple dŽcor. The east side of the dining room is dominated by a pastry case loaded with Italian and Spanish treats.The west side has a collection of five wooden tables,each with five chairs. The family-owned operation aims to be a place where people come looking for a good meal or a tasty treat and keep coming back for more. "We cook like we do when we have company,"Meschino said."You want to impress your guests when they come to your house for dinner.That's exactly what we do here." There's a sense of satisfaction from serving someone delicious food,Meschino said. "It's just the pleasure of seeing someone smiling that they're enjoying what they're eating,"she said. "Everything is fresh,"Giovannelli said. "There's nothing frozen that you throw in the microwave." Breakfast items include eggs,egg sandwiches,sausage and bacon.For lunch,they serve a variety of sub sandwiches for lunch and various pasta dishes.There are also grilled chicken,ham and turkey dinners,salads and lots of sides. And then there are the desserts.The bakery case is filled with enticing selections including Italian cookies,guava pastries and cheesecakes. "Up North,if you really wanted a good cannoli,you went to an Italian bakery," Meschino said.They hope that transplanted Northerners will beat a path to their door, once they find out what they offer. "Our cookies are fresh.We bake them from flour.Everything is from scratch," Giovannelli said. They aim to please. "If we don't have it on our list and someone suggests something,we'll make it for them no problem,"Giovannelli said. They carry items that are gluten-free,that are low in carbohydrates and that are tailored to diabetics.They understand those special needs:Al is watching his carbs, Janette is diabetic and their daughter needs gluten-free foods. Meschino said she loves working with her brother because they're on the same wavelength when it comes to food. "There are times when we are doing something and we don't even have to say anything.We'll look at each other and we know what we're going to do,"she said. There are times,though,the trio agrees, when they don't see exactly eye-to eye. "We'll butt heads once in awhile:Too much salt,a little more sugar,"Giovannelli said. Nancy Leeper,who lives in Plantation Palms,recently dropped by the cafŽ to check it out. She tried a pignoli cookie,an almond-flavored treat that is crunchy outside,soft in the middle and has pine nuts. "It's to die for,"she proclaimed.

M an i on bcmanion@cnewspubs.com With all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays, it’s easy to get distracted – and that’s all a criminal needs to spoil the joy of your season. It almost goes without saying that many steps people can take to avoid being victimized are a matter of common sense. But it never hurts to hear some reminders. During the holidays, criminals like to break into cars in parking lots near shopping centers and restaurants, said Cpl. Alan Wilkett, of the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office. The best line of defense is simple: Lock your doors and roll up your windows, Wilkett said. Criminals are looking for an easy target and often will walk between rows of cars, rattling the door handles to see which will open. If your doors are locked and your windows are closed, chances are they’ll keep moving, he said. It’s also important to keep valuables and packages out of sight, either locked in the trunk or under something in the car. Criminals are more likely to break into a car if they see something of value, the law enforcement officer said. When parking your car, try to minimize the distance between where you’re parked and where you’re going. That makes you less vulnerable to a potential crime. When returning to your car, pay attention to where you’re going. Resist the urge to talk on a cell phone or text. Distraction is a criminal’s best friend – and the less observant you are, the more likely you are to become a crime victim, Wilkett said. When you are approaching your car, be sure to scan underneath it and look inside the car before getting in, to make sure no one is hiding near your car or inside. Be wary if you see a large panel truck parked next to your vehicle, especially if there’s someone in it and it isn’t moving. Trust your instincts, the law enforcement officer said. “There’s a little bell that goes off if things just aren’t right,” he said. Listen to those internal warning signals. If you have any concerns about your safety, go back to the place where you were and ask for someone on the staff at the shop or restaurant to escort you to your car. If you’re out shopping at night and you can see in through the shop’s windows, take a look inside. That may prevent you from walking into a robbery in progress. When shopping, women should carry their handbag in front of them, and men should carry their wallets in the front pocket, he said. Doing so makes them harder to snatch. Do not carry large amounts of cash. Use credit cards because they can be cancelled if they are lost or stolen. It’s a good idea to stay in well-lit places and to carry a whistle or a personal alarm, which can be activated when a danger arises. “Noise is the No. 1 deterrent to a criminal. They don’t like drawing attention,” Wilkett said. When it comes to holiday shopping, Kevin Jackson, chief investigator for Hillsborough County’s Consumer Protection Agency, had some advice. If you’re purchasing items on layaway, be sure to understand the store’s policies and pay special attention to any time constraints or minimum payments that must be made. If you’re doing online shopping, go to the site yourself, don’t just click on one that pops up on your computer. “It could be a fake website,” Jackson warned. Be wary of prices that seem too good to be true, especially of high-end watches, purses and clothing. If something is being offered at bargain basement prices, it may turn out to be counterfeit, instead of the genuine article, he said. It’s also a good idea to ask about a store’s return policies – whether the store provides a store credit or cash, whether it charges a restocking fee and other limitations. Stores are supposed to post their return policy. If you don’t see it anywhere, ask someone at the store to show it to you, Jackson said. Wilkett reminds holiday merrymakers not to drink and drive. Besides watching out for yourself, watch out for your friends, as well, he said. “Call a taxi. Call a parent. Call a friend. Do what it takes,” he said. Parents should also remember that if minors to drink on their property, the liability will fall onto them, Wilkett said. To help prevent underage drinking and prescription drug use, alcohol and medicine cabinets should be locked and an inventory kept of their contents, he said. That’ll help the adults stay on top of what’s happening in their home.Don’t let criminals steal your holiday spirit Holiday safety tips„Be aware of your surroundings. Avoid dimly lit or isolated areas. „If you are carrying a bag keep it close to your body and in front of you at all times. „Do not carry large amounts of cash and limit the number of credit cards to only what is necessary. „If your wallet or handbag is demanded from you, throw the item as far as you can and then flee in the opposite direction.„Consider carrying a personal alarm device.„Plan ahead and avoid danger spots such as isolated or poorly lit alleys or parking lots, which can create opportunities for criminals to operate out of sight. „When walking on a sidewalk, stay on the side closest to the street. Be sure to create a space between yourself and any shrubbery, dark doorways, trees and shadows. „Avoid passing stationary cars with their engines running and people sitting in them. „Be extra vigilant when using an ATM. Watch out for anyone hovering nearby and never count your money within public view. Return to your vehicle or a public place as quickly as possible.„Do not keep all of your valuables in one place.„Plan your journey carefully. Know what route you are taking and let other people know where you are going and when you hope to arrive. „Have a map or GPS in the car so you dont have to stop and ask for directions.„Never leave your keys in the ignition while you are out of the car for any reason. Keep the doors locked when you are driving and keep bags and other valuables out of sight.„If someone approaches your car while stopped, never roll the window down. If you feel threatened sound the horn and flash your lights to attract attention. Drive off if possible. „Avoid breaking down in dangerous areas by servicing your car regularly.

By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comComing into this season,the one relatively unknown girls soccer squad in Class 4A-District 8 was Wiregrass Ranch. After a 1-0 loss at home to district opponent Freedom on Dec.6,the Bulls (7-4) are proving they aren't ready to just be brushed aside even if they didn't match the Patriots (5-2-1) step for step. "I think it was a pretty even battle,"said Freedom coach Jenna Ball."I feel like we had a lot of opportunities,we just weren't capitalizing on our opportunities.We know the things that we need to work on and we're going to get back at it tomorrow and work on it,because we have such a strong district." Jenna is referring to a district that includes four playoff teams from last year, including the Patriots.Steinbrenner,the defending 4A state champions,and Wiregrass Ranch finished as their respective district champs,while Gaither snagged a runner-up spot. Despite feeling her team missed a number of chances,Jenna had to be happy when her Patriots got on the board with the first and only goal in the 21st minute thanks to a shot by senior forward Jenna Stiling. The Bulls had some close calls,and junior goalkeeper Dayton Wetherby had a clean sheet after Stiling's goal including a nifty one-handed save off a bullet aimed at the upper left corner of the net in the 69th minute from Hanna Seybold but Wiregrass Ranch couldn't sneak one past Patriots senior keeper Emily Ball. "Sometimes we depend on her a little too much and that kind of shows,"Jenna said."She did an excellent job and it's just great having such a leader in the back for us." Emily added,"There's always a rivalry,especially with goalkeepers you know in the area.When one makes a good save,you want to make a good save.But you have to keep composed in the second half." In the 60th minute,the Bulls came agonizingly close to tying,but Seybold helped out Emily by using her body to deflect the equalizer. Wiregrass Ranch stepped up its game in the second half,tallying several scoring opportunities. "Quite honestly,I just think we didn't play with enough intensity early on and I think it took too long for us to bring up our intensity,"said Wiregrass Ranch coach Erin Dodd."Had we played the way we played the entire second half the whole game,maybe it would be a different outcome." Wiregrass Ranch hosted Hudson on Dec.12,but results were not available by press time. The Bulls travel to district rival Gaither on Tuesday,Dec. 13,the same day Freedom takes on 4A-8 opponent Chamberlain.Both games start at 6 p.m. SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Steinbrenner girls soccer team showed it is still the team to beat in the area with a 4-0 victory at Gaither on Dec.6. The win keeps the Warriors (73-1) undefeated in Class 4A-District 8 play,putting them in position to finish as the No.1 or 2 seed entering the district tournament at Freedom starting Jan.17."What really matters is what happens in late January and February,so you don't want to peak too early,"said Steinbrenner firstyear coach Robert Woodard."You want to build up.We're pretty much where we need to be right now."The Warriors are the defending 4A state champions,but the Cowboys (5-4-1) are also coming off a deep playoff run that saw them reach the 5A regional finals. "They're a very good team," said Gaither coach Trevor Scott."I mean they won states last year.It's tough playing a team like that and we came out flat.They were able to control the ball because we were flat. That's OK because we know we'll see them again,and we'll get them in districts.Our players need to use this feeling to get ready for when we play them again." The Warriors controlled play for the majority of the contest,forcing the Cowboys to give up the ball seemingly as soon as they got possession. "We've been working on our formations the last couple weeks,"said Steinbrenner sophomore midfielder Danielle Eule."We want to be in the right place to stop them and turn it up and attack." The ball control negated Gaither's strength of setting up its speedy forwards for breakout chances. "The key to it is playing in their half of the field,"Woodard said."If someone gets the ball at midfield and carries it all the way down with all the bumps in the field and people screaming and gets past Stephanie (Hirsch) too,then God bless them." Hirsch,a junior goalkeeper,made six saves to preserve the shutout. Gaither's best chance to score came 11 minutes into the second half.The Cowboys got back-to-back corner kicks,but were unable to capitalize. The Warriors opened up the scoring on their first corner kick opportunity,which came in the fifth minute.Freshman midfielder Jessica Taylor took the kick,which was buried home by Eule. Senior forward Cici Gonzalez added to the lead in the 25th minute off a throw-in by senior forward Taylor Valley.Gonzalez slipped past a Gaither defender to set up a clear shot at the net to score her team-leading fifth goal of the year. Cowboys sophomore goalkeeper Amanda High stopped the bleeding,making four saves in the first and another five in the second,but injured her right hip making a save 24 minutes after halftime forcing her from the contest. "Amanda kept us in it until she got hurt," Scott said."She's given everything in every game.She just goes,goes and goes.She never wants to come out." Steinbrenner wasted little time taking advantage of new Gaither keeper Kelsey Ristad.Taylor found the back of the net off an assist from junior midfielder Marley Opila less than a minute after Ristad entered the game.The Warriors scored again about a minute later on an own goal credited to Valley."We're trying to get our offense in different ways because I don't want someone to gimmick us at the end of the season," Woodard said."I don't want someone to come up with a gimmick defense to stop us. If I build everything around Cici and they come up with a way to stop her and we don't have anything else,I really don't like that idea.I want to be able to build something where everyone adds to the action."Eule said that flexibility on offense and a new emphasis on controlling the pace of play have her excited about the team's chances at defending its state title. "I think we're a better team this year," Eule said."We're playing really well together and improving every day."

"We knew the middle of the zone would be open and Kayli would have to knock down shots.She does it every day in practice,"said UCF coach Joi Williams."We have a lot of confidence with her shooting from that spot.She played without thinking a lot and that's a good thing.We found her in the seam. We didn't do a good job in the first half of reversing the basketball and in the second half that was the difference.Then, we found her in the middle and she knocked down the shot." Keough is in her first season with the Knights.She spent her first two college years at Florida State University and had to sit out the 2010-11 campaign because of NCAA transfer rules. Keough is averaging 9.7 points and 3.1 rebounds per contest through UCF's first seven games.She has played in all of the Kinghts'contests this season,including making four starts.

The group was started by sisters Barbara Mueller and Karen Williams at the end of March 2003 after the start of Operation Iraqi Freedom. "We just wanted to show the troops that people cared about what they were doing," Mueller said. "We started just waving flags and later we began sending packages to the troops." Mueller and Williams led the group for the first six years. Mueller's son, Matt, served five years in the Marine Corps, reaching the rank of first lieutenant. "Barbara and Karen got the ball rolling for us," said Bruce Hockensmith, patriot member. "They were the ones that started it, but it's not about any of us. It's about the troops serving our country." "We don't have a roster and anyone can come out and wave flags with us," Hockensmith said. "We're going to stay out there waving our flags to support our soldiers as long as we can and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon." In addition to weekly flag wavings from 4 to 6 p.m. each Friday, the patriots put together care packages for the troops several times a year. The items and postage money comes from the group and community donations. The patriots are most interested in supporting local soldiers and anyone with family serving is encouraged to let the group know where they are stationed. The patriots use the Support Our Troops Inc. warehouse in Wesley Chapel to pack the supplies. Bob Williams is the founder of the Wesley Chapel organization. The organization regularly receives e-mails and letters from the troops thanking them for the packages, and sometimes more than that. The troops themselves have even visited to show their appreciation. Recently, the patriots have started participating in more somber events involving fallen soldiers. The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office informs the group about the escorts and set up with flags when the procession goes by. It means a lot to the families and it's very emotional." Those interested can donate money or supplies at the weekly flag wavings or e-mail Hockensmith at lutzpatriots@verizon.net.For more information on the Lutz Patriots, visit www.lutzpatriots.com.LUTZ PATRIOTSCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS December 14,2011 21 813-996-712223253 Plantation Palms Blvd. Land O' Lakeswww.plantationpalms.net Oasis GrillChef Ben's Sunday Breakfast Buffet 8am 11amTaco Tuesday 5pm-8pm Includes Indian Tacos Friday Night Happy Hour(first Tuesday of the month) Glow GolfFriday & Saturday Nights 6 to 9 $10 for 9 Holes(soft, glow-in-the-dark, over-sized golf balls) By Jeff Odom Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentFor a program entering its third year,the Steinbrenner wrestling team has seen more than its fair share of success since the school's inaugural season in 2009-10. The Warriors won the program's first district championship last year.The four-point victory in the Class 1A-District 9 meet also ended Jesuit's 10-year stranglehold on such titles.Steinbrenner also advanced a schoolrecord five athletes to the 1A state tournament. The Warriors lost nearly all of their state tournament line-up to graduation,but coach Paul Noble said the team still has the opportunity to compete for its second district crown. "We spend a lot of time working on our bread and butter and we have a lot of kids who are committed,"Noble said."I don't think we have star power,but overall as a team,we're about as good as we were a year ago." The team also lost a host of leadership after the departures of seniors Josh Fulford, Cody Dunham,Ryon Keith and Tyler Reed, but Noble said this year's group is rising to the challenge of laying the foundation for a winning tradition by sticking to the basics. "We expect to be good on our feet,and a lot of coaches will say that,but the proof is in the pudding,"Noble said."If you come to our matches,we attack on our feet.If other teams fear you on your feet,if they don't think they can take you down,then they don't think they can win and that's a mental deal." With the new season comes a new slate of 10 district opponents,including Freedom and Gaither,as Steinbrenner moves into 2A7. The Patriots are the team most likely to prevent the Warriors repeating as district champs.Freedom lost its two state qualifiers,Andrew Ford and Trey Lawson,to gradation,but returns most of its other key wrestlers. Noble said the opponents may have changed,but the winning mentality has not. "(The win over Jesuit last season) sold the kids on what it takes and made them believe we can win,and that belief is still there,"Noble said."We've taken a couple of lumps this year and we lost a couple of matches and we haven't been at full strength yet,but we should be when the conference tournament begins." Senior Jesse Florentino said Noble has helped lead the team to become one of the best in the area in just a short amount of time,and the athletes have shown enough poise to help fuel its high expectations. "We have a lot of good freshmen and other guys that showed promise,"Florentino said."We have a really good lineup again,we didn't lose many guys." Noble,the Warriors'only coach in program history,faces a different challenge than maintaining the Warriors'budding wrestling tradition.He drives a daily commute from his farm in Plant City to Lutz,which he roughly estimates is a 35-40 minute drive one way.However,Noble says the distance isn't an issue and has actually benefitted his own children. "We spend a lot of time (at school) and the one good thing about wrestling is,that it is more family oriented than any other sport,"Noble said."(My kids) are always around,they compete and they wrestle and in the offseason they can wrestle with the high school kids and they both like it and that makes it easier on the family." Noble also added,"This is a great school, plain and simple.This is the best school I've ever worked at and I worked at East Bay for a long time and then in Vail,Colorado, which was even more affluent than this school it's just a really good place and I plan on staying here so that my kids can go to school here." The Warriors next travel to Sickles on Friday,Dec.16 for the Western Conference American Division Tournament at 5 p.m.Noble guiding Warriors back to top after historic season The Steinbrenner wrestling team placed third at the Raider Invitational last weekend.

By Samantha TaylorPure Health StudiosI have found one of my new favorite fast food places,yet it's full of healthy food. A family-owned restaurant that used to be called "Juice Zone"has changed its name to "Fresh Healthy CafŽ."It is still in the same location in the Wiregrass mall across from Border's. I can round up many things I like about the Fresh Healthy CafŽ,the first of which is the friendly staff,especially the business owner's son,John Smith.Any place that serves an amazing selection of healthy,nutritious recipes and complements it with friendly service makes a happy guest out of me. Fresh Healthy Cafe offers wraps,paninis,salads,smoothies and wheatgrass (more on that later).Even though you get your food fast,you won't find French fries and soda in here,which is something they actually take pride in.It is healthy fast food after all,right? In place of sodas,they have a wide array of freshly brewed flavored teas,organic coffee,100 percent freshly squeezed juices,and cool,refreshing water.Drinking soda with a meal is a surefire way of increasing the calorie intake by a few hundred,so it's definitely good they left that off. As I was chatting with John,he recommended a sandwich that made him smile. That was my sign that it was going to be good.Get this:turkey bacon avocado sandwich on a whole wheat panini.Yum! What is a panini,you ask? A panini is a pressed sandwich that is toasted or grilled, Italian in origin.I admit that I normally do not eat avocado,but I gladly took on the challenge. I was surprised to find the highest quality turkey in between the slices of bread; no cheap deli meat in here! The turkey is accompanied by tomatoes,red onions,and low-fat ranch dressing.The sandwich actually comes with cheese,but I opted to skip that as there is already some fat in the avocado, turkey,bacon and bread. When my sandwich arrived,I eagerly bit into the toasted,crunchy delight and was literally shocked at how delicious it was.It was so light,yet so full of flavor.I already knew then that I would be eating here often. Another dish that made John light up talking about it is their new 4-bean quinoa salad.He gave a smile and said,"It's so popular with our guests that it will definitely be a regular dish."Quinoa is high in fiber and protein and is made from a plant,although many think of it as grain.As a side, you can choose to be adventurous and try their quinoa,or go for their veggie chips. Earlier,I mentioned that they served wheatgrass.No,this is not actually made from wheat.Wheatgrass is a kind of very bright,green grass that is packed full of nutrients.People usually order a "shot"of it and gulp it down. I will tell you,you don't order this drink for its flavor,but instead for its major health benefits.After you drink the wheatgrass,you can feel the massive amount of nutrients coursing through your body. Many claim that drinking wheatgrass three times a day has helped cure them of various diseases. Whether you drop by to try the wheatgrass or to have a taste of their selection of delicious food,you are sure to enjoy your Fresh Healthy Cafe experience. One more great thing about them is that they offer healthy catering for parties and events a fresh and healthy way to celebrate. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS December 14,2011 8 10514 Ehren Cut Off, Land O' Lakes 34639813.929.6200 www.mytbsc.com“Like Golf with a Shotgun” 3 COURSES TO SHOOTBook your next event under our 4000 sq. ft. pavilion Guns, Golf Cart Rentals Available UPCOMING NSCA REGISTED SHOOTS JANUARY 14,2012 & FEBRUARY 5,2012Women,Kids and Family Clinics Clinics include a tour of the various courses, handling of firearm, gun safety, muzzle awareness and firing of a shotgun.

Kaufman, M.D. has reached a noteworthy milestone that few medical practices reach. For 30 years his ophthalmology practice in Zephyrhills has been helping Tampa Bay residents. Dr. Kaufman is recognized as one of Floridas leading ophthalmologists and was the first ophthalmologist in the area to perform: Extracapsular Cataract extraction technique, in which the front portion of the eyes natural lens is removed and the rear elastic lens capsule left intact for the implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL). No Stitch Insta-SightTM Cataract Surgery, which uses a tiny beveled self-sealingŽ incision. Dr. Kaufman, in fact, coined the name Insta-Sight,Ž which has become the common medical term for this procedure.Dr. Kaufmans pioneering work in these areas had a direct impact on these technological breakthroughs that help to eliminate pain and needles and reduces a patients recovery time.Here are the stories of just a few patients who have been helped by Dr. Kaufman during his many years of practice. A patient since 1982, Raymond D. was referred to Dr. Kaufman almost 30 years ago for a detached retina and has remained a patient ever since. About five years ago Raymond needed cataract surgery and after consulting with Dr. Kaufman, chose Crystalensmultifocal IOL. Today Raymond is 82 and no longer needs glasses. In fact, he was thrilled that needs corrective eyewearŽ was removed from his new drivers license after he passed the eye test while recently renewing his drivers license. Alvin D. was Dr. Kaufmans first surgery patient in 1981. He was building a fence when a staple from an impact gun lacerated his eye. Dr. Kaufman was the ophthalmologic surgeon on call at the hospital and he repaired the damage to Alvins eye. A few days later a cataract needed to be removed and Alvin asked Dr. Kaufman to do this surgery too. Over the years Alvin has recommended Dr. Kaufman to many friends. One friend had been blind in one eye since he was a boy as a result of a fishhook accident. At Alvins urging, the friend went to see Dr. Kaufman about a problem he was having with his good eye. To his amazement, Dr. Kaufman was also able to repair the damage from the fishhook and restore his vision after 40 years of blindness. In 1984 Doyle S. was 21 and a rookie police officer. He was assigned to traffic duty and began having trouble reading the numbers on license tags. Doyle had his vision checked at a local eye doctor, who prescribed glasses. All seemed okay for a few weeks, but then Doyles vision began to blur again. The eye doctor referred him to Dr. Kaufman, who diagnosed glaucoma „ a disease not typically found in someone so young. Dr. Kaufmans diagnosis and subsequent treatment prevented Doyle from losing his vision, which often happens if glaucoma goes undiagnosed and untreated. I As he got older Doyle experienced a detached retina and developed cataracts. There was never a question about who would take care of my eyes, and that was Dr. Kaufman,Ž said Doyle. His expertise and care are the reasons why both my wife and daughter are also Dr. Kaufmans patients.Ž Doyle, by the way, had multifocal Crystalens implants when his cataract surgery was done and does not need to wear glasses. He has retired from the police force after a successful career in law enforcement of more than 20 years. Dr. Kaufman is board certified and a Diplomat of the American Board of Ophthalmology. He was a clinical Assistant Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of South Florida School of Medicine and was Chief of Surgery at East Pasco Medical Center. Dr. Kaufman has performed over 70,000 surgeries and has seen patient visits in the hundreds of thousands. His son, Jon, is in ophthalmology training at Texas Tech and will soon be joining his father in practice.Dr.KaufmanThree decades of ophthalmology care Zephyrhills6329US301(GallBlvd.)(813)788-7616 www.KaufmanEyeInstitute.com CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS Dece m ber 14, 2011 9 Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Southwest Florida Water Management District is reminding residents who water their lawns to skip a week or more of irrigation during the cooler months of December, January and February. According to research by the University of Florida, grass doesn’t need to be watered as often during the cooler months. Lawns only need 1/2 to 3/4-inches of water every 10-14 days during the winter. In fact, if turf receives any significant rainfall, irrigation systems can be shut off longer. “Over watering can encourage pests and disease in your lawn,” said Florida-Friendly Landscaping project manager Sylvia Durell in a release. “Too much irrigation can also make lawns less able to survive droughts. … Turn the timer to off for the week that you want to skip and on for the week that you want to water.” Lawns need water when: --Grass blades are folded in half lengthwise on at least 1/3 of the yard. --Grass blades appear blue-gray. --Grass blades do not spring back, leaving footprints on the lawn for several minutes after walking on it. Watering only every other week at most during the winter will help conserve drinking water supplies the public needs for critical uses during the dry season. If everyone skipped one week of irrigation this season, it could save an estimated 1.9 billion gallons of water. For additional information about water restrictions and water conservation, visit the district’s website at www.WaterMatters.org/SkipAWeek/.Skip a week this winter

The business is a full-service automotive repair shop,providing everything from oil changes to engine replacements,and a range of services in between,said Josh Wall, vice president of franchise and strategic development for the company. The shop will have an upscale look and feel with a brick and stone exterior, wood flooring,leather couches,artwork and Wi-Fi,Wall said. Like most repair shops,it will have a selection of magazines in the waiting room. But unlike the majority,it also will likely have a Bible and may have a prayer request journal,as well,Wall said. However,the company doesn't encourage its patrons to sit around in the waiting room killing time. It also provides a shuttle service,to deliver its customers to work,home or shopping. "We want to make it as convenient as possible for them,"Wall said. The shuttle is driven by the franchise operation's owner,-and that's for a reason. "It allows them to really connect with their customers." The company has 93 franchise operations in 11 states,and expects to open its 100th location sometime in 2012.Florida will be the company's 12th state and it has current commitments for stores in 16 states. Besides the Land O'Lakes location,it also plans to open a store on Bruce B. Downs,south of County Line Road,on May 21 and another on June 11 on Race Track Road near Countryway Boulevard. "We've had our eye on the Tampa market for some time.We're really optimistic about the growth,"Wall said."We believe this is a service that customers want and need."The economy has caused many people to delay purchasing new cars and,as a result,they are investing more to maintain their car and keep it on the road,he said. "We have seen this as a national trend," Wall said. When Christian Brothers Automotive is considering a new franchise location it considers a combination of factors,Wall said.It wants to make sure there's a market for its services and it wants to give its franchise operator the best possible chance for success,he said. Christian Brothers Automotive uses a model similar to Chick-fil-A and McDonald's, Wall said.It builds its stores and leases them back to franchisees. So far,the company,which is 29 years old,has a solid track record,Wall said. "We've been franchising for 15 years with a 100 percent success rate." The shop under construction in Land O' Lakes is expected to open on Feb.13.The 5,000-square-foot facility will have nine automotive repair bays.Eventually,it is expected to have about a dozen employees. The chain's normal operating hours are Monday through Friday,from 7 a.m.to 6 p.m.However,when a new location opens, it also is open on Saturday,from 8 a.m.to 2 p.m.for the first six to nine months. The idea is to introduce the shop's services to the local community,including to that segment of the market that only get repairs and maintenance done on Saturdays, Wall said. The company is closed on weekends to allow its employees to relax,spend time with their families and worship,Wall said. The policy of being closed on weekends has helped the company to recruit outstanding employees,Wall said. While the new automotive shop goes up near the northeast corner of SR 54 and Livingston Road,two other projects are being built on the southwest corner of the intersection.One is a RaceTrac gas station and the other is an apartment development. The Christian Brothers Automotive repair shop is being built on the north side of SR 54, just east of Livingston Road. This rea r view shows the size of the shop. (Photo by B.C. Manion)
