Wearing grins from ear to ear,the five poke through the piles of gifts and find items ranging from clothes to toys to new bicycles. It's not a scene from Christmas morning.It's at Freedom High and the five students are examining the donations the Patriots gave to the Salvation Army for 100 needy kids in the Tampa Bay Area. The five include Amy Chang,Leah Thomas,Michael Simon,Cris Zayas and Christina Wise.They are members of Freedom's Less Than One club, which raises money throughout the year to sponsor underprivileged kids in countries like Ethiopia or China. But during the last two holiday seasons the group has organized an Angel Tree program through the Salvation Army,which provides needy children's wish lists for Christmas presents. The 100 wishes were put on paper angels and hung on a Christmas tree in Freedom's main office.Students and faculty answered the call of all the children and provided the gifts. "It's really good knowing that kids will get a new bike for Christmas when they can't afford it,"said Chang,who participated in the Angel Tree project last year. "Happiness is going to them during the holidays and you know you're helping with that.It's just really special to know they'll have a great Christmas." Chang,a senior,was part of Freedom's first Angel Tree program last year,which netted 75 presents for needy children. "Angel Tree is so big and it really helps the Tampa Bay area,"Chang said."There are a lot of people who aren't as privileged and it's good to help them whenever we can." Gifts included smaller items like clothes and coloring books to more elaborate presents like 12 bikes and a Nintendo DS game system.Club supervisor Laura Babbitt said it was a thrill to see the pouring in of gifts from students.Remembering Christmas'true meaning Senior Amy Chang loads up some of the gifts Freedom students and employees donated to needy kids for the holiday season.

But during his down time,he has used those talents to create something a bit fanciful,and during the holidays those driving past US 41 and County Line Road will see it. The Lutz man has fashioned a team of reindeer that appear to be taking off into flight. That's just one of the decorations that Bellingar and his grandson,Matthew Thrasher,put up every year to provide enjoyment for others. He estimates they put up about 10,000 lights that wrap around brick posts,line a long fence and add holiday color to the home that he shares with his wife,Annette, at 202 W.County Line Road. In addition to Santa and his sleigh,there's a tree made of lights,inflatable figures and closer to his house,a Candy Cane lane. Bellingar has been putting up the massive display,which gets bigger each season, every year except one since 1995. One year,the display was much smaller. That was the year his former wife passed away,and Bellingar just couldn't get into the spirit. He wasn't going to put up a display at all that year,but at the urging of neighbors put up a much smaller version. Since then,he's back into it with a vengeance. "I just keep adding more every year.I enjoy it." The lights are typically on each night from 6-11 p.m.and will be up until a week after New Year's. Check out our holiday lights list,page 4 Look,is that Santa's sleigh taking off? See CHRISTMAS,page14 David Bellingar created this team of reindeer that appears to be rising in flight.

He was thrilled to get the shots. Leopard sightings are rare, Marcus explained. “Less than 2 percent of the people that ever go to Africa ever see a leopard in the wild.” Another image from Marcus’ photo collection shows an eagle ray jumping out of the water in an area near Heron Island, a coral atoll that sits on the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. “It’s in the morning, we’re waiting to leave and rays are jumping. The water is clear enough that I can track them under water. “For about two hours, I’m tracking rays and have not pushed the shutter one time. I have a mantra that I am reciting to myself: ‘When his nose breaks the water, push the shutter. When his nose breaks the water, push the shutter.’ “If you wait until the top of the arc, you have a lovely splash.” “I took one shot. I knew I had it when I took it,” he said. The 60-year-old is willing to go where he needs to go, but he doesn’t take undue risks. When he is out at night in Africa, for instance, he has a guide, a driver, a spotter and an armed guard. “The armed guard is not to protect us from the animals.” The Dade City man said his interest in wildlife began when he was a young boy. “I was blessed, in a way, that my dad was an airline mechanic. He worked for National Airlines. We traveled as children. In those years, we would go to the zoos like everyone else. As I grew, I simply developed this fascination with animals in their native environment.” He got into photography when he was about 18 years old. His dad had some cameras, so Marcus began experimenting with them and expanded his repertoire. Around 1975, he sold his cameras, his darkroom and his golf clubs to start a business in the electronics field.That business, Sound Connections International, designs and manufactures highend audio and video connectors for the entertainment industry. The business is located in Lutz and is run by Marcus’ daughter-in-law.Years after he got his business rolling, Marcus went on an Alaskan cruise. While he was on the trip, he saw some excellent photographs that had been taken by someone on a whale-watching excursion. It reignited his interest in photography. That was about 20 years ago. Since then, he has traveled all around the world to add to his photo collection and, at a friend’s encouragement he put some photos up on display. He’s been showing and selling his photographs ever since. Marcus has no intention of packing up his cameras any time soon – unless, of course, it’s to go to out on another photo expedition. B y B .C. M anion bc m an i on@cnewspub.co m Visiting Stuart Marcus’ wildlife photography gallery is like taking a trip around the globe. There are images of big cats – leopards and lions – that he tracked down in Africa and photographs of penguins he captured in Antarctica. The collection also includes images of bats, iguanas and rhinos. There are pictures of birds, too, including the blue-footed booby, the red-footed booby and the masked booby that Marcus shot in the Galapagos Islands. He’s particular about the kinds of animals he photographs. “You can see big herds of camels in Australia,” he said, but when he was there, he didn’t take any pictures of those. “I didn’t want to photograph an animal that was brought there.” The same goes for foxes. “Foxes were brought to Australia because the English wanted a fox hunt. They’re not native.” While some may appreciate the aesthetic quality of Marcus’ work, he said that’s not what drives him. “If you see artistic merit, thank you very much,” he said. “It was purely unintentional. The intent is to capture animal behavior without interfering.” Over the years, his experiences have created vivid memories and he keeps copious notes, to help him fill in the details. “This beautiful young leopard, he is a young male, absolutely in the prime of his life,” Marcus said, describing one of his photos at the HiBrow Art Gallery, at 14125 Seventh St., in downtown Dade City. “He was photographed in the Serengeti, in the Seven Hills area. “He’s one of the few animals that’s actually ever succeeded in scaring me — in making me move backwards.” When Marcus and his guide initially spotted the leopard, it was moving away from them. Marcus said his guide asked him if he trusted him – and Marcus told him he did. The guide then proceeded to drive on a game path that took them all of the way around the plain, a trip that took over an hour, so they could try to catch a glimpse of the leopard on the other side. Shortly after they arrived on the other side of the plain, they saw the leopard approaching.“We stay still in the Jeep. In about another 20 minutes, he emerges from the grass. He’s walking right at the Jeep. I am down, shooting out the window, so I can have a nice low angle of him walking up to me, and I thought he was going to go through the window to get to the other side of the Jeep.“He did not turn until he literally was two or three feet away from the window.” The leopard then climbed a fallen tree branch, where he watched for his prey – giving Marcus ample opportunity to captureWildlife photography gallery offers window to the world Stuart Marcus at a recent exhibit he had at the HiBrow Art Gallery in downtown Dade City.

(Photos courtesy of Lowry Park) Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Lowry Park Zoo experienced its second rhinoceros birth of the year on Dec. 7. Kidogo, a white rhino, gave birth in the early hours that morning in the African rhino barn. An Indian rhino was also born at the zoo in July. “Every rhino birth, regardless of which species, is significant in our global efforts to protect these animals,” said Dr. Larry Killmar, vice president and director of collections. “During the past 16 months, the animal care staff applied sound animal husbandry principals that resulted in this, our second successful birth of a southern white rhino.” The zoo is currently home to five white rhinos — three adult females that came from the Phinda Reserve in Africa, one adult male and the new female offspring. Kidogo’s first offspring, a male named Kito, relocated to Knoxville Zoo in November on Species Survival Plan recommendation. Kidogo and calf will be gradually introduced to the other rhinos and the Grevy’s zebra, which share their exhibit. The southern white rhino is native to eastern and southern Africa and is classified as near threatened. The white rhino probably got its name after an English misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word weit, which means wide in reference to the way it eats. The land grazing mammals have unique square-lipped mouth that allows them to eat wide amounts of grasses found throughout savannahs. The white rhinoceros has two horns at the end of its muzzle, the most prominent in the front. Both horns are made out of keratin, the same material found in human hair and nails. Unlike its Indian relative, white rhinos use their horns as a defense mechanism. Females use their horn to protect their young, while males use them to battle each other. Adult white rhinos can reach weights of 5,000 pounds, with most calves estimated to be between 100-140 pounds. The white rhino calf is not yet named, but the Zoo has launched a naming contest on its Facebook page. A selection of African names selected by the zoo’s animal care team — starting with the letter K in honor of mother Kidogo — include: --Kafi quiet --Kande first born daughter --Kato second born --Kwaku born on Wednesday The female calf will receive her name just in time for the holiday. The entry with the most votes through Friday, Dec. 23 wins.Zoo welcomes baby white rhino

I have a problem hearing over the telephone I have trouble following the conversation when two or more people are talking at the same time I have trouble understanding things on TV I have to strain to understand conversations I have trouble hearing conversations in a noisy background such as crowded room or restaurant I get confused about where sounds come from I misunderstand some words in a sentence and need to ask people to repeat themselves I especially have trouble understanding the speech of women and children I have trouble understanding the speaker in a large room such as at a meeting or place of worship Many people I talk to seem to mumble (or don't speak clearly) People get annoyed because I misunderstand what they say I misunderstand what others are saying and make inappropriate responses I avoid social activities because I cannot hear well and fear I will reply improperly Family members and friends have told me they think I may have hearing loss Who's whoOriginally from Connecticut, Jody C. Pianin, Au.D moved to Tampa in 2001 after practicing Audiology for three years in the Boston area. Since then, she has continued to make an impact in patient's lives by giving them the precious gift of sound by mastering the art of hearing aids. Respectively, she is one of 1600 audiologists in the country who have met the elite requirements to be Board Certified in Audiology by the America Board of Audiology. In 2006, Dr. Pianin was honored with the Professional Leadership Award from the Audiology Foundation of America. As a member of the student mentoring committee of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology, she actively enjoys mentoring students pursuing their doctorate degrees in the profession of Audiology. When she's not working, she enjoys dancing, doing yoga, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. For more information contact Dr. Pianin's office at 813.973.8400 27634 Cashford Circle, Wesley Chapel, Florida 33544 www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Can You Hear What I Hear? MeetJody Pianin,Au.D By Erica ColluraListening to the inside of an oversized conch seashell always encompasses not only sound, but also emotions too.The serene ocean-like sound can put someone relaxing on the beach no matter how far away they are. Loss of hearing,even sounds as trivial as a seashell,can have a significant emotional and physical impact on someone's life. Audiologists,Jody Pianin,Au.D,and Alyson Hoffman,Sc.D.,CCC-A,understand these negative impacts,and they are devoted to restoring quality of life through better hearing for their patients. As Doctors of Audiology,Dr.Pianin and Dr.Hoffman are experts in the diagnosis and management of hearing problems.They begin by performing comprehensive hearing testing with state-of-the-art equipment in both their Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills offices,all in a warm and caring environment.After proper testing,they will decide what route to take next. Sometimes the hearing loss is medically treatable, and if so,they will make the appropriate referral for treatment.But if the hearing loss is permanent, they use their expertise to find a solution that is individualized for each patient."We have hearing aids to fulfill every hearing loss,lifestyle and budget," Dr.Pianin said."We don't want people to be limited on the options they have." Dr.Pianin and Dr.Hoffman will not settle for anything but a patient's complete satisfaction,so all new hearing aid fittings have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.Many of the hearing aids available have a 4-year repair warranty, so patients can be reassured of their quality.They also offer hearing aid repair service for all makes and models,regardless of where the hearing aid was purchased,as well as hearing aid accessories like batteries,drying units, cleaning sprays and battery testers. In addition,they provide some hearing loss preventatives such as custom hearing protection,swim plugs, musician's earplugs,hunter's plugs and other specialty molds. They have ear equipment for just about any scenario."We even offer products from Westone including musicians' custom in-ear monitors and high quality earphones for iPods,"said Dr.Pianin. "Once your hearing is gone,it's not coming back,"said Dr. Pianin."It is so important for people to get checked because they might not even know they have hearing loss because they've just subconsciously adjusted,"she said.Fortunately, there are convenient methods to fix these problems. Dr.Hoffman stresses that even teenagers should be aware that "one out of five teens suffers from hearing loss," and as time moves on,the statistics are rising. The Audiology team at Florida Medical Clinic is devoted to creating comfortable lifestyles,so that patients can go back to enjoying the simple things in life,like the sound of a seashell. How do I know if I need to see an Audiologist?If you've answered "yes" to any of the above, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a hearing test with one of our Doctors of Audiology. Y N Who's whoAlyson Hoffman, Sc.D., CCC-A, grew up in New Jersey and knew at a young age she wanted to pursue a medical career. She earned her Doctor of Science in Audiology in 2010 at Montclair State University in New Jersey. In 2009, Dr. Hoffman moved to Tampa Bay to complete her Audiology externship for graduate school. Dr. Hoffman has worked in the hearing aid industry since 2004, gaining valuable experience while completing her Audiology degree. She is compassionate and takes the time to listen and care for her patients and their families. In her spare time she enjoys music, reading, baseball, and spending time with family and friends.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither boys soccer team is still looking to find its identity this season, which is to be expected with a squad going through a number of big changes from last year. The Cowboys (9-2-1) reached the Class 5A state final four during the 2010-11 season,but lost 10 of their 22 players to graduation. "It was a good season and we lost a lot of our impact players from that team,and any time you lose that much experience it's very difficult,"said Gaither coach Eric Sims."The high school game is a lot different from regular soccer because the field isn't as wide. It's tough without experience.We have a lot of good guys,but we're just trying to get them used to this game and how we want them to play.It's going to be difficult to replace the players we had." Of the 75 goals scored by the Cowboys last year,58 were put in by players who have graduated.Among the departing players were Jordan See and Zach Wheeler,who scored 15 and 24 goals as seniors,respectively. The defensive core lost the tough physical play of Charlie Delmar.Also gone is four-year starting goalkeeper John Nardozzi, who racked up 90 saves and 11 shutouts last year. But Gaither does have a winning tradition,which creates an expectation to always make deep postseason runs.The Cowboys have made the playoffs in 13 of the last 14 years,including winning the Class 4A state championship in 2000.The squad has also averaged more than 16 wins per year during the last five seasons. "I think we're better than most programs having lost that kind of talent and experience,and we've got a lot of good players," Sims said."This individual team has a lot of skill,so we don't have to teach that.It's more teaching them how to play on the smaller field and them getting used to each other." Sims will also use the leadership of the few returning players who started last year. "We bring back a lot of our guys on our defense like Jacob Snidle and Justin Santos," Sims said."Those are guys who started in the state semifinal." Snidle,a senior,said he has been working to be a bigger leader in his final high school season.He said his biggest goal is working to help the team play together. "This year people around us are just expecting us to get back because of what we did and what Gaither has done in the past," Snidle said."We know we have to fight to get back there because it won't be easy." Moving in as the starting keeper is senior Carlos de Oliveira. "He's a player we'd like to have play out in the field if possible,but he's probably our best option at this point in goal and has done a good job,"Sims said. For de Oliveira the decision to stay in net was an easy one. "I just try and help where I can and do my best,"de Oliveira said. The midfielder turned keeper learned a lot from Nardozzi while backing him up the last two years. "Position in the field and in goal is what I learned from him,"de Oliveira said."Be strong and smart.He was very smart.Play with your heart and with your emotions. That's what he taught me." The Cowboys'attack gets a boost from an old source,forward Jonas Bukh.The senior played at Gaither as a freshman and sophomore,but he moved back to his native Denmark for his junior year. In his first few games back Bukh has a team-high nine goals while adding five assists. The Cowboys will need all of Bukh's offense to get out of their new district,Class 4A-District 8.The new alignment includes Steinbrenner,Freedom,Wiregrass Ranch, Sickles and Chamberlain. "It seems like whenever we change districts we get a difficult one,"Sims said."In terms of rivalry it's good for the players to play teams close by with their friends." Bukh added,"I think playing tough teams will help us tremendously.It doesn't help to beat a team 6-0 or 6-1.That's basically just practice.When you have to really work to win,that's what makes the team better."The Cowboys played Lennard in the first round of the Wharton Invitational on Dec.19, but results were not available by press time.

By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comThe Land O'Lakes boys soccer team had a meeting before its rematch against crosstown rival Sunlake on Dec.12, Coach Mark Pearson,in his 16th season with the Gators (9-1-2),told his squad to apply pressure to the Seahawks (9-2-2). Or,as senior Josh Davis put it,"Once we score and get up,we need to just step on their throat and knock them out." Davis had four goals as Land O'Lakes heeded its coach's advice en route to a 5-1 win against its district opponent.The two faced off early this year resulting in a 1-1 draw on Nov.16. "I know we can still play better,which sounds a little crazy because of the score, but I know we can do better,"Pearson said. "I thought we left about four,maybe five, goals off the field tonight. Fortunately, Josh Davis had one heck of a game again today." But it was Davis'teammate,Andy Garcia who was missing from the first game who got the Gators on the board first in the 14th minute.Garcia broke some tackles and dribbled left before firing.Sunlake's goalkeeper Brandon Jungbauer got a piece of it,but couldn't get a good enough handle to stop the ball from finding the back of the net.Then Davis took over. After booming a kick that ricocheted off the crossbar,he later got past two defenders,broke free with the ball and slammed it in for his first goal to put Land O'Lakes up 2-0. Pearson told his players to be wary of their lead. "(Pearson) said that's the worst lead to have,"Davis said. Davis heeded his coach's words and scored again 3 minutes into the second half off a crossing pass.Later,he wheeled around and tapped in his third goal to nab the hat trick. "I don't really celebrate my goals,I don't know why,"Davis said."To me,I got a hat trick I'm going to work to get another one." Sunlake's Daniel Calderon prevented the shutout on a goal off a rebound with 14 minutes remaining in the contest. Davis answered on an assist to Miguel Laliberte with 6 minutes left to secure the four-goal victory. "We're in good standings now,"Davis said."We beat the team we need to beat." While Land O'Lakes won bragging rights after the rematch,neither coach was too invested in the significance of the win. "About the last week we haven't been playing our best either,so I was kind of a little worried coming into tonight,"said Sunlake coach Sam Koleduk."Can't complain too much considering it's our first loss. I think we still definitely have a little mystique still coming here.They're very tough here." Pearson was pleased with the win,but cautioned that a district win wouldn't mean much come playoff time. "I've been around long enough to know that the district championships are a different breed,"Pearson said."We're not thinking that this is proving our case for the year,because we know it hasn't." Sunlake and Land O'Lakes will participate in the Berkeley Prep Invitational on Tuesday,Dec.20 at 1 p.m.before taking a winter break.The Seahawks resume play on Thursday,Jan.5,while the Gators will take the pitch on Monday,Jan.9.Gators dominate rematch versus SunlakeFormer Land O'Lakes High cross country and track and field athletes reunited at the Flapjack 5K at the Land O'Lakes Recreation Complex on Dec. 11.

He ran for 776 yards and 11 touchdowns in the Warriors’ run-heavy wingT offense, but also caught 11 passes for 142 yards and another two scores. Pearcey also showed versatility by mixing in another 441 yards and three trips to the end zone on kick and punt returns. Scary to think what his numbers could have been if he was the main back from Day 1. DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Josh Scarberry. Scarberry claims the award for the second straight season. The senior moved to outside linebacker from the inside spot this year and quickly adapted to the new position with eye-popping plays. He led all athletes in Hillsborough or Pasco counties with 14 sacks. Scarberry also added 118 tackles, three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries including returning one 12 yards for a touchdown. The senior did all that while playing with a badly sprained left ankle that limited him in the second half of the year. DEFENSIVE HONORABLE MENTION —LINEBACKER: Luke Fisher, Sr., Wesley Chapel.

The two-way player had 72 tackles, two interceptions, five passes defensed and one sack. —DEFENSIVE BACK: Danny Fernandez,Sr., Steinbrenner. Fernandez was the Warriors’ lockdown cornerback. Opposing teams rarely threw his way, so he only had one interception and three passes defensed. —DEFENSIVE BACK: Josias Vizcano,So., Wesley Chapel. Led Wesley Chapel with four interceptions and four passes defensed. —DEFENSIVE BACK: Patrick Ward, Sr., Carrollwood Day. His 93 tackles were more than any other Patriot. —UTILITY: Darin Patmon,Sr., Land O’ Lakes. Posted 55 tackles two fumble recoveries. COACH OF THE YEAR: Jason Stokes, Gaither. The first-year Gaither coach took over a program that had won just eight games in the previous three years combined. Stokes, who spent the previous two seasons at Middleton, came in and turned the culture around about as quickly as humanly possible. The Cowboys went 9-4 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The squad made it to the regional finals for just the second time in the school’s 27-year history. Gaither also averaged 27.2 points per contest after Stokes took over play calling in Week 2. 2011 HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STATISTICAL LEADERS Cameron Stoltz Carlo Perello Ryan Bird Jamal Jones Jarrett Harvey Darius Page Nick Sampson Tyler McCollum Matt Williams Josh Scarberry Nick Morrison Eddie Pastrana

Tolearnmore,visitWomensHealth.gov/HeartAttack Be on the lookout for memorable holiday photosBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThere aren't many occasions when the whole family gathers so,when it happens, it's a nice idea to try to get some pictures. But how do you get the best shots of those holiday moments? We asked Susan Slater,a professional photographer who teaches digital photography classes at Beck Gallery in Lutz,to share her expertise. She offers these suggestions: For the best family portraits,shoot photos at the beginning of the gathering before people get distracted by too much partying. Be sure to find a large enough spot for everyone to fit in the photo.Be aware of backgrounds.Look for one that's not distracting or cluttered.Arrange people so the tallest are in back, oldest people are seated,children are held or seated on a lap and everyone is relatively close together.Have the people tilt their shoulders slightly,to bring them closer together.Tell everyone to relax.Tell them you will count to three and that they should be smiling and looking at the camera. Take several shots to be sure you get a good one. Keep in mind opportunities for various group shots,such as generations of family members,shots with pets and so on. For candid photographs: Find a place to get a clear vantage point of the action or person you are trying to photograph. Be thinking about what will make the most memorable shot. Be sure to fill the frame with the image you want to preserve by zooming in to avoid distracting backgrounds. Some good subjects for candid shots include people preparing or serving food and wrapping or unwrapping presents. Here's an example of a candid shot of a child opening a present. (Photo by Susan Slater)"Of the gifts that were donated,at least half were given by students,not the adults," said Babbitt,an ESE specialist at Freedom. "So many students used their own money and stepped up to get an angel off the tree to get them something special for Christmas.That's what has been amazing to me that we have so many teenagers who care so much. "The thought that they put into the gifts shows,"Babbitt continued."You can tell the gifts that came from students and which came from adults because of the thought that went into it.There was a girl who gave a bike,but also got a lock for it and other things to go along with it.So she was thinking of everything she would want with a new bike and added to it." Chang said the Angel Tree idea started with a now graduated student named Amy Kim. "She really wanted to give gifts to kids whose parents couldn't afford them for the holidays,"Chang said."She wanted to find ways to help the community out and she loves kids.I thought it was a great idea and wanted to be involved in it." Chang said it was really special participating in the Angel Tree project the last two years.She added the underclassmen in the club are planning to continue it each year. "Hopefully it will just keep growing and growing,"Chang said."That way more kids can have presents on Christmas."

By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentSteinbrenner girls basketball coach J.R. Allen preached the importance of playing as a team during the two weeks leading up to his squad's home matchup with district rival Freedom on Dec.16. Allen's message paid off,as the Warriors (9-1) came back from a first half deficit to deliver the Patriots (8-3) their third straight loss,55-40. The Warriors looked rusty early,as Freedom's speedy passing and aggressive defense halted scoring chances throughout the first half.Allen told his players to relax, and they slowly cut into the Patriot lead."We came out a little bit tight and a little bit tense,but I think part of that is due to the nature of the game,"Allen said."It was our first big challenge that we've had in quite a long time,but after the first quarter we talked about getting the ball to the inside because that's where we had an advantage."Steinbrenner freshman forward Rachel Briere led the charge in the comeback win, putting up 13 of her 21 points in the first half to pull the Warriors within one entering the third quarter."I really think all of the great passes helped so much,"Briere said."Just the team knowing and trusting in me,I felt so confident."Steinbrenner came out of halftime firing on all cylinders,forcing Freedom's offense to settle for outside shots that wouldn't fall. The Warriors went ahead for the first time when junior forward Baylee Hooker scored on a layup off a cross court pass from senior center Rebecca Cohen to go up 27-26,a lead they never surrendered. Freedom coach Laurie Pacholke said her team has to turn things around by taking advantage of its opportunities. "We got to get better,"Pacholke said. "We're not playing well enough right now we fell asleep on defense and they beat us backdoor,and that can't happen." On the boys side,Steinbrenner (6-1) defeated Freedom (3-5) 67-43.Steinbrenner senior center Joey Maloney led the way recording 22 points,10 rebounds and three blocks en route to the victory. "We just got to keep the momentum going,"said Maloney."We weren't playing our game early in the second quarter and coach told us to play the second half hard." Steinbrenner coach Steve Williams said the early success of the program comes from its surplus of veteran players and leadership. "We've just had the guys in the program for three years,we started with most of these guys as freshman and sophomores, and I just think they've matured over the time that we've been together and they're beginning to understand what it takes to be successful,"said Williams.SPORTS Pasco-Hernando Community College freshman volleyball player Lindsey Watson has been named to the 2011 Academic AllAmerican first team by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). "We are very proud of Lindsey and her accomplishments this season,"said Conquistadors coach Kim Whitney."She exemplified an incredible work ethic throughout the season, and the honor is very well deserved." Watson,a libero from Bandon,helped lead PHCC to a 31-11 record,to a regional championship and to the No.16 rating in the country. She was named the Defensive Player of the Week twice by the Florida College System Activities Association and received all tournament honors four times during the season. Watson,a criminal justice major,recorded a team-high 798 digs and added 29 aces while playing in all 133 of the Conquistadors'sets this season.

Wearing grins from ear to ear,the five poke through the piles of gifts and find items ranging from clothes to toys to new bicycles. Its not a scene from Christmas morning.Its at Freedom High and the five students are examining the donations the Patriots gave to the Salvation Army for 100 needy kids in the Tampa Bay Area. The five include Amy Chang,Leah Thomas,Michael Simon,Cris Zayas and Christina Wise.They are members of Freedoms Less Than One club, which raises money throughout the year to sponsor underprivileged kids in countries like Ethiopia or China. But during the last two holiday seasons the group has organized an Angel Tree program through the Salvation Army,which provides needy childrens wish lists for Christmas presents. The 100 wishes were put on paper angels and hung on a Christmas tree in Freedoms main office.Students and faculty answered the call of all the children and provided the gifts. Its really good knowing that kids will get a new bike for Christmas when they cant afford it,said Chang,who participated in the Angel Tree project last year. Happiness is going to them during the holidays and you know youre helping with that.Its just really special to know theyll have a great Christmas. Chang,a senior,was part of Freedoms first Angel Tree program last year,which netted 75 presents for needy children. Angel Tree is so big and it really helps the Tampa Bay area,Chang said.There are a lot of people who arent as privileged and its good to help them whenever we can. Gifts included smaller items like clothes and coloring books to more elaborate presents like 12 bikes and a Nintendo DS game system.Club supervisor Laura Babbitt said it was a thrill to see the pouring in of gifts from students.Remembering Christmastrue meaning Senior Amy Chang loads up some of the gifts Freedom students and employees donated to needy kids for the holiday season. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)Lutz man uses welding skills to create special effectsBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comBy day,David Bellingar uses his welding skills to build fences. But during his down time,he has used those talents to create something a bit fanciful,and during the holidays those driving past US 41 and County Line Road will see it. The Lutz man has fashioned a team of reindeer that appear to be taking off into flight. Thats just one of the decorations that Bellingar and his grandson,Matthew Thrasher,put up every year to provide enjoyment for others. He estimates they put up about 10,000 lights that wrap around brick posts,line a long fence and add holiday color to the home that he shares with his wife,Annette, at 202 W.County Line Road. In addition to Santa and his sleigh,theres a tree made of lights,inflatable figures and closer to his house,a Candy Cane lane. Bellingar has been putting up the massive display,which gets bigger each season, every year except one since 1995. One year,the display was much smaller. That was the year his former wife passed away,and Bellingar just couldnt get into the spirit. He wasnt going to put up a display at all that year,but at the urging of neighbors put up a much smaller version. Since then,hes back into it with a vengeance. I just keep adding more every year.I enjoy it. The lights are typically on each night from 6-11 p.m.and will be up until a week after New Years. Check out our holiday lights list,page 4 Look,is that Santas sleigh taking off? See CHRISTMAS,page14 David Bellingar created this team of reindeer that appears to be rising in flight. Heres a look at what motorists see when they drive by US 41 and County Line Road in Lutz. (Photo by B.C. Manion)

He was thrilled to get the shots. Leopard sightings are rare, Marcus explained. Less than 2 percent of the people that ever go to Africa ever see a leopard in the wild. Another image from Marcus photo collection shows an eagle ray jumping out of the water in an area near Heron Island, a coral atoll that sits on the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. Its in the morning, were waiting to leave and rays are jumping. The water is clear enough that I can track them under water. For about two hours, Im tracking rays and have not pushed the shutter one time. I have a mantra that I am reciting to myself: When his nose breaks the water, push the shutter. When his nose breaks the water, push the shutter. If you wait until the top of the arc, you have a lovely splash. I took one shot. I knew I had it when I took it, he said. The 60-year-old is willing to go where he needs to go, but he doesnt take undue risks. When he is out at night in Africa, for instance, he has a guide, a driver, a spotter and an armed guard. The armed guard is not to protect us from the animals. The Dade City man said his interest in wildlife began when he was a young boy. I was blessed, in a way, that my dad was an airline mechanic. He worked for National Airlines. We traveled as children. In those years, we would go to the zoos like everyone else. As I grew, I simply developed this fascination with animals in their native environment. He got into photography when he was about 18 years old. His dad had some cameras, so Marcus began experimenting with them and expanded his repertoire. Around 1975, he sold his cameras, his darkroom and his golf clubs to start a business in the electronics field.That business, Sound Connections International, designs and manufactures highend audio and video connectors for the entertainment industry. The business is located in Lutz and is run by Marcus daughter-in-law.Years after he got his business rolling, Marcus went on an Alaskan cruise. While he was on the trip, he saw some excellent photographs that had been taken by someone on a whale-watching excursion. It reignited his interest in photography. That was about 20 years ago. Since then, he has traveled all around the world to add to his photo collection and, at a friends encouragement he put some photos up on display. Hes been showing and selling his photographs ever since. Marcus has no intention of packing up his cameras any time soon unless, of course, its to go to out on another photo expedition. B y B .C. M anionbcm ani on@cnewspub.co mVisiting Stuart Marcus wildlife photography gallery is like taking a trip around the globe. There are images of big cats leopards and lions that he tracked down in Africa and photographs of penguins he captured in Antarctica. The collection also includes images of bats, iguanas and rhinos. There are pictures of birds, too, including the blue-footed booby, the red-footed booby and the masked booby that Marcus shot in the Galapagos Islands. Hes particular about the kinds of animals he photographs. You can see big herds of camels in Australia, he said, but when he was there, he didnt take any pictures of those. I didnt want to photograph an animal that was brought there. The same goes for foxes. Foxes were brought to Australia because the English wanted a fox hunt. Theyre not native. While some may appreciate the aesthetic quality of Marcus work, he said thats not what drives him. If you see artistic merit, thank you very much, he said. It was purely unintentional. The intent is to capture animal behavior without interfering. Over the years, his experiences have created vivid memories and he keeps copious notes, to help him fill in the details. This beautiful young leopard, he is a young male, absolutely in the prime of his life, Marcus said, describing one of his photos at the HiBrow Art Gallery, at 14125 Seventh St., in downtown Dade City. He was photographed in the Serengeti, in the Seven Hills area. Hes one of the few animals thats actually ever succeeded in scaring me in making me move backwards. When Marcus and his guide initially spotted the leopard, it was moving away from them. Marcus said his guide asked him if he trusted him and Marcus told him he did. The guide then proceeded to drive on a game path that took them all of the way around the plain, a trip that took over an hour, so they could try to catch a glimpse of the leopard on the other side. Shortly after they arrived on the other side of the plain, they saw the leopard approaching.We stay still in the Jeep. In about another 20 minutes, he emerges from the grass. Hes walking right at the Jeep. I am down, shooting out the window, so I can have a nice low angle of him walking up to me, and I thought he was going to go through the window to get to the other side of the Jeep.He did not turn until he literally was two or three feet away from the window. The leopard then climbed a fallen tree branch, where he watched for his prey giving Marcus ample opportunity to captureWildlife photography gallery offers window to the world Stuart Marcus at a recent exhibit he had at the HiBrow Art Gallery in downtown Dade City.

The newly born white rhino spends some time with its mother, Kidogo. (Photos courtesy of Lowry Park)Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportLowry Park Zoo experienced its second rhinoceros birth of the year on Dec. 7. Kidogo, a white rhino, gave birth in the early hours that morning in the African rhino barn. An Indian rhino was also born at the zoo in July. Every rhino birth, regardless of which species, is significant in our global efforts to protect these animals, said Dr. Larry Killmar, vice president and director of collections. During the past 16 months, the animal care staff applied sound animal husbandry principals that resulted in this, our second successful birth of a southern white rhino. The zoo is currently home to five white rhinos three adult females that came from the Phinda Reserve in Africa, one adult male and the new female offspring. Kidogos first offspring, a male named Kito, relocated to Knoxville Zoo in November on Species Survival Plan recommendation. Kidogo and calf will be gradually introduced to the other rhinos and the Grevys zebra, which share their exhibit. The southern white rhino is native to eastern and southern Africa and is classified as near threatened. The white rhino probably got its name after an English misinterpretation of the Afrikaans word weit, which means wide in reference to the way it eats. The land grazing mammals have unique square-lipped mouth that allows them to eat wide amounts of grasses found throughout savannahs. The white rhinoceros has two horns at the end of its muzzle, the most prominent in the front. Both horns are made out of keratin, the same material found in human hair and nails. Unlike its Indian relative, white rhinos use their horns as a defense mechanism. Females use their horn to protect their young, while males use them to battle each other. Adult white rhinos can reach weights of 5,000 pounds, with most calves estimated to be between 100-140 pounds. The white rhino calf is not yet named, but the Zoo has launched a naming contest on its Facebook page. A selection of African names selected by the zoos animal care team starting with the letter K in honor of mother Kidogo include: --Kafi quiet --Kande first born daughter --Kato second born --Kwaku born on Wednesday The female calf will receive her name just in time for the holiday. The entry with the most votes through Friday, Dec. 23 wins.Zoo welcomes baby white rhino

Pianin, Au.D moved to Tampa in 2001 after practicing Audiology for three years in the Boston area. Since then, she has continued to make an impact in patients lives by giving them the precious gift of sound by mastering the art of hearing aids. Respectively, she is one of 1600 audiologists in the country who have met the elite requirements to be Board Certified in Audiology by the America Board of Audiology. In 2006, Dr. Pianin was honored with the Professional Leadership Award from the Audiology Foundation of America. As a member of the student mentoring committee of the Academy of Doctors of Audiology, she actively enjoys mentoring students pursuing their doctorate degrees in the profession of Audiology. When shes not working, she enjoys dancing, doing yoga, reading, camping and spending time with family and friends. For more information contact Dr. Pianin's office at 813.973.8400 27634 Cashford Circle, Wesley Chapel, Florida 33544 www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Can You Hear What I Hear?MeetJody Pianin,Au.DBy Erica ColluraListening to the inside of an oversized conch seashell always encompasses not only sound, but also emotions too.The serene ocean-like sound can put someone relaxing on the beach no matter how far away they are. Loss of hearing,even sounds as trivial as a seashell,can have a significant emotional and physical impact on someones life. Audiologists,Jody Pianin,Au.D,and Alyson Hoffman,Sc.D.,CCC-A,understand these negative impacts,and they are devoted to restoring quality of life through better hearing for their patients. As Doctors of Audiology,Dr.Pianin and Dr.Hoffman are experts in the diagnosis and management of hearing problems.They begin by performing comprehensive hearing testing with state-of-the-art equipment in both their Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills offices,all in a warm and caring environment.After proper testing,they will decide what route to take next. Sometimes the hearing loss is medically treatable, and if so,they will make the appropriate referral for treatment.But if the hearing loss is permanent, they use their expertise to find a solution that is individualized for each patient.We have hearing aids to fulfill every hearing loss,lifestyle and budget, Dr.Pianin said.We dont want people to be limited on the options they have. Dr.Pianin and Dr.Hoffman will not settle for anything but a patients complete satisfaction,so all new hearing aid fittings have a 30-day satisfaction guarantee.Many of the hearing aids available have a 4-year repair warranty, so patients can be reassured of their quality.They also offer hearing aid repair service for all makes and models,regardless of where the hearing aid was purchased,as well as hearing aid accessories like batteries,drying units, cleaning sprays and battery testers. In addition,they provide some hearing loss preventatives such as custom hearing protection,swim plugs, musicians earplugs,hunters plugs and other specialty molds. They have ear equipment for just about any scenario.We even offer products from Westone including musicians' custom in-ear monitors and high quality earphones for iPods,said Dr.Pianin. Once your hearing is gone,its not coming back,said Dr. Pianin.It is so important for people to get checked because they might not even know they have hearing loss because theyve just subconsciously adjusted,she said.Fortunately, there are convenient methods to fix these problems. Dr.Hoffman stresses that even teenagers should be aware that one out of five teens suffers from hearing loss, and as time moves on,the statistics are rising. The Audiology team at Florida Medical Clinic is devoted to creating comfortable lifestyles,so that patients can go back to enjoying the simple things in life,like the sound of a seashell. How do I know if I need to see an Audiologist?If you've answered "yes" to any of the above, we encourage you to contact our office to schedule a hearing test with one of our Doctors of Audiology.Y N Whos whoAlyson Hoffman, Sc.D., CCC-A, grew up in New Jersey and knew at a young age she wanted to pursue a medical career. She earned her Doctor of Science in Audiology in 2010 at Montclair State University in New Jersey. In 2009, Dr. Hoffman moved to Tampa Bay to complete her Audiology externship for graduate school. Dr. Hoffman has worked in the hearing aid industry since 2004, gaining valuable experience while completing her Audiology degree. She is compassionate and takes the time to listen and care for her patients and their families. In her spare time she enjoys music, reading, baseball, and spending time with family and friends.

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither boys soccer team is still looking to find its identity this season, which is to be expected with a squad going through a number of big changes from last year. The Cowboys (9-2-1) reached the Class 5A state final four during the 2010-11 season,but lost 10 of their 22 players to graduation. It was a good season and we lost a lot of our impact players from that team,and any time you lose that much experience its very difficult,said Gaither coach Eric Sims.The high school game is a lot different from regular soccer because the field isnt as wide. Its tough without experience.We have a lot of good guys,but were just trying to get them used to this game and how we want them to play.Its going to be difficult to replace the players we had. Of the 75 goals scored by the Cowboys last year,58 were put in by players who have graduated.Among the departing players were Jordan See and Zach Wheeler,who scored 15 and 24 goals as seniors,respectively. The defensive core lost the tough physical play of Charlie Delmar.Also gone is four-year starting goalkeeper John Nardozzi, who racked up 90 saves and 11 shutouts last year. But Gaither does have a winning tradition,which creates an expectation to always make deep postseason runs.The Cowboys have made the playoffs in 13 of the last 14 years,including winning the Class 4A state championship in 2000.The squad has also averaged more than 16 wins per year during the last five seasons. I think were better than most programs having lost that kind of talent and experience,and weve got a lot of good players, Sims said.This individual team has a lot of skill,so we dont have to teach that.Its more teaching them how to play on the smaller field and them getting used to each other. Sims will also use the leadership of the few returning players who started last year. We bring back a lot of our guys on our defense like Jacob Snidle and Justin Santos, Sims said.Those are guys who started in the state semifinal. Snidle,a senior,said he has been working to be a bigger leader in his final high school season.He said his biggest goal is working to help the team play together. This year people around us are just expecting us to get back because of what we did and what Gaither has done in the past, Snidle said.We know we have to fight to get back there because it wont be easy. Moving in as the starting keeper is senior Carlos de Oliveira. Hes a player wed like to have play out in the field if possible,but hes probably our best option at this point in goal and has done a good job,Sims said. For de Oliveira the decision to stay in net was an easy one. I just try and help where I can and do my best,de Oliveira said. The midfielder turned keeper learned a lot from Nardozzi while backing him up the last two years. Position in the field and in goal is what I learned from him,de Oliveira said.Be strong and smart.He was very smart.Play with your heart and with your emotions. Thats what he taught me. The Cowboysattack gets a boost from an old source,forward Jonas Bukh.The senior played at Gaither as a freshman and sophomore,but he moved back to his native Denmark for his junior year. In his first few games back Bukh has a team-high nine goals while adding five assists. The Cowboys will need all of Bukhs offense to get out of their new district,Class 4A-District 8.The new alignment includes Steinbrenner,Freedom,Wiregrass Ranch, Sickles and Chamberlain. It seems like whenever we change districts we get a difficult one,Sims said.In terms of rivalry its good for the players to play teams close by with their friends. Bukh added,I think playing tough teams will help us tremendously.It doesnt help to beat a team 6-0 or 6-1.Thats basically just practice.When you have to really work to win,thats what makes the team better.The Cowboys played Lennard in the first round of the Wharton Invitational on Dec.19, but results were not available by press time. Gaithers next regular season contest is at home against Freedom on Wed.,Dec.4 at 8 p.m.Rebuilding a final four team at Gaither Gaither senior defender Jacob Snidle scored the Cowboyslone goal in a 1-0 win against district rival Wiregrass Ranch on Dec. 13.

By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comThe Land OLakes boys soccer team had a meeting before its rematch against crosstown rival Sunlake on Dec.12, Coach Mark Pearson,in his 16th season with the Gators (9-1-2),told his squad to apply pressure to the Seahawks (9-2-2). Or,as senior Josh Davis put it,Once we score and get up,we need to just step on their throat and knock them out. Davis had four goals as Land OLakes heeded its coachs advice en route to a 5-1 win against its district opponent.The two faced off early this year resulting in a 1-1 draw on Nov.16. I know we can still play better,which sounds a little crazy because of the score, but I know we can do better,Pearson said. I thought we left about four,maybe five, goals off the field tonight. Fortunately, Josh Davis had one heck of a game again today. But it was Davisteammate,Andy Garcia who was missing from the first game who got the Gators on the board first in the 14th minute.Garcia broke some tackles and dribbled left before firing.Sunlakes goalkeeper Brandon Jungbauer got a piece of it,but couldnt get a good enough handle to stop the ball from finding the back of the net.Then Davis took over. After booming a kick that ricocheted off the crossbar,he later got past two defenders,broke free with the ball and slammed it in for his first goal to put Land OLakes up 2-0. Pearson told his players to be wary of their lead. (Pearson) said thats the worst lead to have,Davis said. Davis heeded his coachs words and scored again 3 minutes into the second half off a crossing pass.Later,he wheeled around and tapped in his third goal to nab the hat trick. I dont really celebrate my goals,I dont know why,Davis said.To me,I got a hat trick Im going to work to get another one. Sunlakes Daniel Calderon prevented the shutout on a goal off a rebound with 14 minutes remaining in the contest. Davis answered on an assist to Miguel Laliberte with 6 minutes left to secure the four-goal victory. Were in good standings now,Davis said.We beat the team we need to beat. While Land OLakes won bragging rights after the rematch,neither coach was too invested in the significance of the win. About the last week we havent been playing our best either,so I was kind of a little worried coming into tonight,said Sunlake coach Sam Koleduk.Cant complain too much considering its our first loss. I think we still definitely have a little mystique still coming here.Theyre very tough here. Pearson was pleased with the win,but cautioned that a district win wouldnt mean much come playoff time. Ive been around long enough to know that the district championships are a different breed,Pearson said.Were not thinking that this is proving our case for the year,because we know it hasnt. Sunlake and Land OLakes will participate in the Berkeley Prep Invitational on Tuesday,Dec.20 at 1 p.m.before taking a winter break.The Seahawks resume play on Thursday,Jan.5,while the Gators will take the pitch on Monday,Jan.9.Gators dominate rematch versus SunlakeFormer Land OLakes High cross country and track and field athletes reunited at the Flapjack 5K at the Land OLakes Recreation Complex on Dec. 11. Lee Stephens,who graduated in 1998,claimed first place at the event by running a 16:23.

Several area student-athletes also ran in the event.Wiregrass Ranch junior Ermias Bireda took third place by finishing in 16:58,while Gators sophomore Jake Poore ran a 17:20 to finish in fourth place.

He ran for 776 yards and 11 touchdowns in the Warriors run-heavy wingT offense, but also caught 11 passes for 142 yards and another two scores. Pearcey also showed versatility by mixing in another 441 yards and three trips to the end zone on kick and punt returns. Scary to think what his numbers could have been if he was the main back from Day 1. DEFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE YEAR: Scarberry claims the award for the second straight season. The senior moved to outside linebacker from the inside spot this year and quickly adapted to the new position with eye-popping plays. He led all athletes in Hillsborough or Pasco counties with 14 sacks. Scarberry also added 118 tackles, three forced fumbles and five fumble recoveries including returning one 12 yards for a touchdown. The senior did all that while playing with a badly sprained left ankle that limited him in the second half of the year. DEFENSIVE HONORABLE MENTION LINEBACKER: Had a team-high 77 tackles and also sacked the quarterback 2.5 times. LINEBACKER: Totaled 60 tackles while kicking in a pair of sacks and two passes defensed.

DEFENSIVE LINE: Led the Bulls with 3.5 sacks while posting 43 tackles. DEFENSIVE LINE: Added six sacks and 54 tackles to Carrollwood Days defense. DEFENSIVE BACK: Picked off three passes and defensed another five while adding 62 tackles. DEFENSIVE BACK: The two-way player had 72 tackles, two interceptions, five passes defensed and one sack. DEFENSIVE BACK: Fernandez was the Warriors lockdown cornerback. Opposing teams rarely threw his way, so he only had one interception and three passes defensed. DEFENSIVE BACK: Led Wesley Chapel with four interceptions and four passes defensed. DEFENSIVE BACK: His 93 tackles were more than any other Patriot. UTILITY: Posted 55 tackles two fumble recoveries. COACH OF THE YEAR: The first-year Gaither coach took over a program that had won just eight games in the previous three years combined. Stokes, who spent the previous two seasons at Middleton, came in and turned the culture around about as quickly as humanly possible. The Cowboys went 9-4 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2008. The squad made it to the regional finals for just the second time in the schools 27-year history. Gaither also averaged 27.2 points per contest after Stokes took over play calling in Week 2. 2011 HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL STATISTICAL LEADERS Cameron Stoltz Carlo Perello Ryan Bird Jamal Jones Jarrett Harvey Darius Page Nick Sampson Tyler McCollum Matt Williams Josh Scarberry Nick Morrison Eddie Pastrana

Tolearnmore,visitWomensHealth.gov/HeartAttack Be on the lookout for memorable holiday photosBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThere arent many occasions when the whole family gathers so,when it happens, its a nice idea to try to get some pictures. But how do you get the best shots of those holiday moments? We asked Susan Slater,a professional photographer who teaches digital photography classes at Beck Gallery in Lutz,to share her expertise. She offers these suggestions: For the best family portraits,shoot photos at the beginning of the gathering before people get distracted by too much partying. Be sure to find a large enough spot for everyone to fit in the photo.Be aware of backgrounds.Look for one thats not distracting or cluttered.Arrange people so the tallest are in back, oldest people are seated,children are held or seated on a lap and everyone is relatively close together.Have the people tilt their shoulders slightly,to bring them closer together.Tell everyone to relax.Tell them you will count to three and that they should be smiling and looking at the camera. Take several shots to be sure you get a good one. Keep in mind opportunities for various group shots,such as generations of family members,shots with pets and so on. For candid photographs: Find a place to get a clear vantage point of the action or person you are trying to photograph. Be thinking about what will make the most memorable shot. Be sure to fill the frame with the image you want to preserve by zooming in to avoid distracting backgrounds. Some good subjects for candid shots include people preparing or serving food and wrapping or unwrapping presents. Heres an example of a candid shot of a child opening a present. (Photo by Susan Slater)Of the gifts that were donated,at least half were given by students,not the adults, said Babbitt,an ESE specialist at Freedom. So many students used their own money and stepped up to get an angel off the tree to get them something special for Christmas.Thats what has been amazing to me that we have so many teenagers who care so much. The thought that they put into the gifts shows,Babbitt continued.You can tell the gifts that came from students and which came from adults because of the thought that went into it.There was a girl who gave a bike,but also got a lock for it and other things to go along with it.So she was thinking of everything she would want with a new bike and added to it. Chang said the Angel Tree idea started with a now graduated student named Amy Kim. She really wanted to give gifts to kids whose parents couldnt afford them for the holidays,Chang said.She wanted to find ways to help the community out and she loves kids.I thought it was a great idea and wanted to be involved in it. Chang said it was really special participating in the Angel Tree project the last two years.She added the underclassmen in the club are planning to continue it each year. Hopefully it will just keep growing and growing,Chang said.That way more kids can have presents on Christmas.

By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentSteinbrenner girls basketball coach J.R. Allen preached the importance of playing as a team during the two weeks leading up to his squads home matchup with district rival Freedom on Dec.16. Allens message paid off,as the Warriors (9-1) came back from a first half deficit to deliver the Patriots (8-3) their third straight loss,55-40. The Warriors looked rusty early,as Freedoms speedy passing and aggressive defense halted scoring chances throughout the first half.Allen told his players to relax, and they slowly cut into the Patriot lead.We came out a little bit tight and a little bit tense,but I think part of that is due to the nature of the game,Allen said.It was our first big challenge that weve had in quite a long time,but after the first quarter we talked about getting the ball to the inside because thats where we had an advantage.Steinbrenner freshman forward Rachel Briere led the charge in the comeback win, putting up 13 of her 21 points in the first half to pull the Warriors within one entering the third quarter.I really think all of the great passes helped so much,Briere said.Just the team knowing and trusting in me,I felt so confident.Steinbrenner came out of halftime firing on all cylinders,forcing Freedoms offense to settle for outside shots that wouldnt fall. The Warriors went ahead for the first time when junior forward Baylee Hooker scored on a layup off a cross court pass from senior center Rebecca Cohen to go up 27-26,a lead they never surrendered. Freedom coach Laurie Pacholke said her team has to turn things around by taking advantage of its opportunities. We got to get better,Pacholke said. Were not playing well enough right now we fell asleep on defense and they beat us backdoor,and that cant happen. On the boys side,Steinbrenner (6-1) defeated Freedom (3-5) 67-43.Steinbrenner senior center Joey Maloney led the way recording 22 points,10 rebounds and three blocks en route to the victory. We just got to keep the momentum going,said Maloney.We werent playing our game early in the second quarter and coach told us to play the second half hard. Steinbrenner coach Steve Williams said the early success of the program comes from its surplus of veteran players and leadership. Weve just had the guys in the program for three years,we started with most of these guys as freshman and sophomores, and I just think theyve matured over the time that weve been together and theyre beginning to understand what it takes to be successful,said Williams.SPORTS Pasco-Hernando Community College freshman volleyball player Lindsey Watson has been named to the 2011 Academic AllAmerican first team by the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). We are very proud of Lindsey and her accomplishments this season,said Conquistadors coach Kim Whitney.She exemplified an incredible work ethic throughout the season, and the honor is very well deserved. Watson,a libero from Bandon,helped lead PHCC to a 31-11 record,to a regional championship and to the No.16 rating in the country. She was named the Defensive Player of the Week twice by the Florida College System Activities Association and received all tournament honors four times during the season. Watson,a criminal justice major,recorded a team-high 798 digs and added 29 aces while playing in all 133 of the Conquistadorssets this season.
