The game sort of like miniature golf on steroids involves hitting a lightweight,softball-sized golf ball around a nine-hole course. Oh,and it's played at night using fluorescent balls,with lighted flags at each oversized hole. "The concept of glow-in-the-dark is neat,"said Beach,25,of Wesley Chapel."It's so much fun." Kathleen Dumas,Beach's girlfriend,had never played golf before she tried Softgolf.She had a blast.Terri Beach said she had such a good time By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe owners of an organic gardening shop in Odessa weren't always into organic food. They eased into the world of foods grown without chemicals. They began by gradually changing their diet about eight years ago stocking up on fresh fruits and veggies at farmer's markets, said Melissa Kanaris. As their interest intensified,Melissa and her husband,Pete,decided to help others grow their own food. They opened GreenDreams,an organic gardening shop in Odessa,last year.Its primary market area includes Odessa,Wesley Chapel,Lutz,Land O'Lakes and North Tampa,as well as communities in West Pasco and North Pinellas counties. The organic gardening business is a division of Clean Cut Lawn & Landscape Inc.,a landscaping company that Pete Kanaris has been operating for 12 years.0 Melissa Kanaris extols the virtues of homegrown foods on GreenDreams'website. "The flavor surpasses anything you've bought recently from the store,"she writes. "The vitamin and nutritional content is farOrganic gardening fits any budget Ray Baldorossi Jr., owner of Softgolf, and Steve McDonald, one of the owners at Plantation Palms Golf Club, stand near one of the holes used in Softgolf.

Cannon, agriculture agent Jimmy Higgins and businessmen George Nikolai, Bob Williams and Joe Collura led a group of local businessmen to start a fair to showcase Pasco’s resources. It seems Pasco’s resources have impressed, because the 65th annual Pasco County Fair will run Feb. 20-26. The fair kicks off with a parade Monday, Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. in downtown Dade City. The theme of the parade and the fair is Ridin,’ Rockin’ and Livestockin’, and a trophy will be awarded to the entry judged as the best depicting the theme. Other trophies will be given for best of parade, best adult civic unit, best youth civic unit, best marching unit, best equestrian unit, best individual western rig, best commercial unit, best high school marching band, and best middle school band. The parade will start at Rodney B. Cox Elementary School, travel east on Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, south on Seventh Street, and west on Florida Avenue before ending at Pasco Elementary School. Fair events will be held at the Pasco County Fairgrounds, 36722 SR 52. This year’s ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Children ages 5 and younger get in free. On Tuesday, Feb. 21, the fair is an even bigger bargain, with gate admission of $3. Entertainment runs the gamut with baby pageants, midway rides, magic, racing pigs, a rodeo, a demolition derby, comedy, music, and — new this year — a Grizzly bear show, where audiences can observe a 7-foot-tall, 600-pound Grizzly bear and two cubs interact with their handlers. Also on hand is an Elvis tribute, a juggler, exhibits by school and community groups, and shows featuring livestock, goats, poultry, rabbits, plants, artwork and needlework. The midway will feature more than 30 rides, including thrill rides, kiddy rides, and favorites such as the merrygo-round and bumper cars. Discounted wristbands will be sold through Sunday, Feb. 19, at Walgreen’s locations in Pasco County and North Tampa. Fair hours are from 3-11 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, the fair is open from 3 p.m.-midnight; 10 a.m.-midnight on Saturday; and noon-7 p.m. on Sunday. Parking is free.For a list of events or more information, visit www.pascocountyfair.com or call (352) 567-6678. The Pasco County Fair Demolition Derby will be Sunday, Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. Spectators can watch free with gate admission. Drivers must supply their own cars and are limited to two full-size cars and one 4-cylinder car.

Man i on bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m So far, only a few jobs have been posted for openings at the new Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, under construction on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, but the medical care facility is gearing up to begin posting more positions this month.The hospital, part of the Florida Hospital Tampa Bay Division of the Adventist Health System, expects to begin posting jobs on its Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel website during February. “Right now, we’re just getting our infrastructure set up,” said Joyce Nelson, assistant vice president of human resources and wellness for the hospital. Hospital officials want to get an electronic application system in place to enable a smooth process for both the hospital and applicants, Nelson said. “We want to make it easy,” Nelson said. Hospital officials know there is a high volume of interest, Nelson said. In addition to posting openings online, the hospital also will be having job fairs. Those interested in employment opportunities can stay abreast of the latest news by checking www.fhwesleychapel.com. While the hospital prepares to hire a work force, progress continues on the project’s construction. The three-story hospital will open with 80 beds. It has been designed to accommodate up to six stories, with a total of about 300 beds, as the community grows and healthcare needs expand. The hospital is designed with the patient in mind, hospital officials have said. Its front door, for instance, is less than 50 feet away from an MRI scanner.It also is designed so that future expansion will never be needed in front of the building, keeping the front entrance from being pushed to the middle of the campus, a problem hospitals sometimes encounter when they expand.The idea is to keep things as simple as possible for people who are healing and those visiting them, hospital officials have said.

The clear alternative to braces. Laker/Lutz News Staff Report If the Upper Tampa Bay Trail is your preferred spot for exercise, you may be interested in attending a public meeting Thursday, Feb. 23 to discuss a proposal to extend and improve the trail in northwest Hillsborough County. Hillsborough County is proposing to build 4.3 miles of 12-foot-wide paved trail. The addition would extend from Van Dyke Road north through the Brooker Creek Headwaters Preserve to Lutz-Lake Fern Road, then east along Lutz-Lake Fern Road to the Suncoast Trail. Under the plans, the parking facility at the Suncoast Expressway also will be replaced with a new, larger trailhead on Lutz-Lake Fern Road, approximately one mile west. The total construction cost is approximately $3.7 million. Construction is expected to start in September 2012 and be completed in August 2013.The existing trail is 7.25 miles, starting at a trailhead at Memorial Highway and Montague Street and ending at Peterson Road Park. The trail is popular with bikers, walkers, joggers, skaters, horseback riders and anglers. County staff will be at the meeting to discuss the details of the project and answer any questions. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Martinez Middle School, 5601 W. Lutz-Lake Fern Road.For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (813) 2725275.Upper Tampa Bay Trail topic of meetingWednesdayBaked chicken thigh, potatoes au gratin, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread with margarine, fresh fruit, low-fat milk.ThursdayThree bean beef chili, white rice, whole kernel corn, whole grain roll with two margarines, mixed fruit, low fat milk.FridayPork chop patty with brown gravy, black eye peas with turkey ham, country vegetable medley, white bread with margarine, peaches, low-fat milk.MondayLasagna casserole, garlic spinach, Italian vegetable medley, whole grain bread with 2 margarines, peaches, low-fat milk.

Local residents best know this area as the Land O Lakes location for Carrabbas Italian Grill. The salons exquisite dcor flows with marble tile floors, comfortable Europeanstyle shampoo bowls, lots of room between stylists and an open color bar stocked with top-of-the-line color and chemical treatments. In the five months that Eclipse has been open it has seen a steady increase in clientele. Were the only upscale salon in this area east of Land O Lakes and west of Trinity,Ž said Rita. Many clients like our convenience to their homes and to the Suncoast.Ž Eclipse is open to 8 p.m. two nights a week and all day Saturday to accommodate clients busy schedules. A typical Eclipse client is a young professional between the ages of 28 and 40, Rita said, although the salon has clients of all ages. Young professionals like us because we stay very current with the styles and trends,Ž she said. We think of your hair as an accessory you wear every day. Our clients go home knowing how to style their hair and if they have any problems doing so, we want them to come back for another consultation at no charge.Ž A clients first visit to Eclipse begins with an in-depth 30-minute consultation with a stylist. We listen and set goals and expectations before we clip the first piece of hair,Ž said Rita. An inch to a client may mean something entirely different than a inch to a stylist. We make sure we fully understand what the client wants before we recommend a cut, color or chemical treatment.Ž Rita has been a hairdresser for 26 years and is a master stylist with Redken. She has won many awards for her work in Total Look MakeoversŽ and Evening Style.Ž Eclipse is the second salon that Rita has owned. She previously owned a salon in Jonesboro, Ill. for 12 years. Working alongside Rita at Eclipse as both stylist and makeup artist is Pamela French. Pam has 30 years experience and was a trainer at many prestigious academies in New York, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles. As a child I loved to color and paint. In my teens I fell in love with science. My career has combined these two loves,Ž said Pam. Redken has a perfect mix of art and science.Ž Also working at Eclipse are stylists Melissa VanShalk and Janet Briesacher.

By Kyle LoJacono klo j acono@cnewspu b s.co m Lucy Smith-Rogers dreams for the day when she can take her two sons to school without the hassles of road construction slowing her down. Smith-Rogers, of New Tampa, drops off her youngest son, Josh, at Hunter’s Green Elementary before doing the same with her oldest son, Tommy, at Benito Middle. She lives about 15 miles from the facilities, which are next to each other on Cross Creek Boulevard, but the delays associated with the project along with traffic make the trip almost 30 minutes. “It didn’t used to take that long,” SmithRogers said. “When they both went to Hunter’s Green last year it only took about 10-15 minutes.” Smith-Rogers also has her daily commute to downtown Tampa slowed by the same roadwork that makes dropping off her sons more time consuming. She said it takes her about 30 minutes longer to get to work than it did a year ago. Smith-Rogers is one of the 66,500 drivers who use Bruce B. Downs from County Line Road to East Bearss Avenue. That daily traffic is greater than the number of vehicles that use I-75 from the split with I-275 down to East Fletcher. Edward Arnold, Hillsborough project manager, said the county is paying for the four-stage, $80.84 million widening project to reduce traffic congestion created by increasing population in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel. Once completed the entire stretch of Bruce B. Downs will expand from four to eight lanes. “It’s been years in the planning stages,” Arnold said. “The first two segments’ construction started in early 2010 and will be completed together.” The first two segments stretch from Pebble Creek Drive to Palm Springs Boulevard in the south. Arnold said the job is on pace for completion in late 2012. The third section begins at Palm Springs and extends south to Bearss, while the final stage goes from Pebble Creek north to the Pasco County line.Arnold said the third phase of the project is scheduled to last from the middle of 2013 to late 2016, with the fourth segment lasting from the middle of 2014 to 2015.“The reason we did the middle section first is that’s the area that includes the onramp to I-75,” Arnold said. “We wanted to get that taken care of so people can use the newly widened interstate instead of Bruce B. Downs while we finish that job.” The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is currently widening I-75 from SR 54 in Wesley Chapel south to Fowler Avenue and has plans to expand the interstate north to SR 52 in Dade City. “That whole area along I-75 has been growing in population the last 10 or so years,” said FDOT public information officer John McShaffrey. “The department is planning for even more growth with these projects.” For now, the construction on Bruce B. Downs is an inconvenience for SmithRogers and the others who share the roadway, but eventually it will make travel easier. “Maybe by the time both of my boys are in high school and can drive themselves it’ll be done,” Smith-Rogers said with a laugh. “Maybe, but I’m not counting on it anytime soon.”Bruce B. Downs project presses forward

The idea of a four-day school week has been proposed as a cost-saving measure in the face of the Pasco County School District’s ongoing budget crisis. The first forum to discuss the proposal was Thursday in Dade City. “In order to find creative solutions to our funding needs without jeopardizing the availability of programs and services for students, our task force has spent a great deal of time researching the implications of a possible four-day school week,” said Steve Luikart, chairman of the task force exploring the four-day school option. “We believe it is important to stay openminded, so that we can make the best possible decisions for our students. Our task force is eager to have community input and has gathered feedback via an online survey. These forums are one more way to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to weigh in on this important topic.” The remaining forums, at 6:30 p.m., are: Wednesday, Feb. 15 – Charles S. Rushe Middle cafeteria. Thursday, Feb. 16 – River Ridge Performing Arts Center. For more information, call (813) 7942717. At ease soldier, time to fish

The Softgolf enthusiast,who has wanted to revive the game for years,got his chance when he met Steve McDonald,one of the owners of Plantation Palms golf course. "When Ray brought this to me,it was a natural fit for me.I just fell in love with it," said McDonald,a member of the PGA."He came out and showed me what his game was all about,and I was very intrigued by the passion,his idea,and really wanted to see a man live out his dream. "We provided the facility for Ray to test it out,"McDonald said. The game is good for the golf course, too,McDonald said. "We can generate revenue while our golf course is sleeping,"McDonald said. The game is geared for nearly anybody, Baldorossi said. There are rightand left-handed clubs,of different colors and sizes.Players who have tried the game have been as young as 3 and as old as their 80s.He recommends children be at least 5 years old before hitting the course.It takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete nine holes. Right now,Plantation Palms is the only place in the world to play Softgolf. Of course,Baldorossi hopes that will change.He's in talks with seven locations now,and he envisions franchises popping up all over the place.And,there's already a greater Tampa championship tournament scheduled for March 11. In Baldorossi's eyes,Softgolf has the potential to be really,really big. No matter what,Baldorossi said his greatest reward is to see family and friends out on the course,having a good time. For more information,visit www.softgolf.net. superior.Every day that a vegetable is off the vine,it loses a significant portion of its nutritional value." She also writes about the intangible rewards of gardening. "There is a sense of satisfaction watching this natural wonder that you've helped to create,grow.Every day you see changes in the garden:Plants grow,flowers bloom,fruit forms on the vine and vegetables seem to grow right before your eyes." She notes other benefits,as well. "It is a wonderful learning experience for kids.It teaches them self-sufficiency,responsibility and work ethic.Donating surplus veggies to neighbors or your local food pantry helps them understand the importance of tithing and community." There's an emotional component,too. "It lifts your spirits.It is really hard to be in a melancholy mood while you are touching and smelling the gifts of Mother Earth," observes Kanaris,whose family has been gardening for generations. GreenDreams,at 14510 Black Lake Road, has a small retail room stocked with gardening books,heirloom seeds,organic fertilizer and a botanical-based pest control. Out back,there's a nursery,where assorted trees and plants are available for purchase and various gardening techniques are on display.There are plants growing in roof gutters,recycled milk crates and vertical garden towers. The company also has a small classroom, where Eric Stewart,a GreenDreams employee,teaches classes three days a week.The classes are typically around $15,but there are also four free classes each month. Stewart is a huge proponent of helping others to become more self-sufficient.He's heavily involved in the organic gardening community and has a website,www.codegreencommunity.org,which features a wide range of information on gardening topics.At GreenDreams,Stewart teaches an organic vegetable gardening class,offers instruction on pickling and canning foods and teaches Introduction to Permaculture.Permaculture emphasizes using science, ecology and perennial plants to provide a sustainable source of food."It's all about self-sufficiency.I think that's definitely the basis of this business teaching people how to take care of themselves,"Kanaris said. "We work with edible perennials,a lot of things grow very well in Florida without a lot of care," Kanaris said."It isn't just traditional garden plots and fruit trees." Both Stewart and Kanaris are enthusiastic about the maringa tree,which comes from northern India. "They can get as tall as 40 feet,"Kanaris said."These leaves are full of nutrition," she said,while grasping a branch of the tree."They have four times the vitamin C of oranges." Stewart calls it the anti-aging tree. "It's high in polyphenols,which are antioxidants,"Stewart said."The more you eat, the younger you look and the more vibrant you feel." The company also sells blueberries and assorted trees,including olive,apple,nectarine,peach,macadamia nut and neem trees. Vegetables are not grown at the Odessa site,but the company will get vegetable plants started for their customers. "We make little soil blocks,"Kanaris said. "Then they can plant those in their gardens."A tray of seedlings,with 50 plants goes for $40. Beyond selling gardening supplies and providing classes,the company offers consultation services that include soil testing, sunlight and drainage assessments,pruning instructions,mulching and composting and advice on vegetable gardens,perennial vegetables,fruit and medicinal trees,edible bushes and vines,native and pollinator plants and the incorporation of livestock, such as chickens,ducks,rabbits or goats. They also can discuss such issues as drought tolerance and rain harvesting. Consultations typically take a couple of hours and cost $130. The company also offers installation of various kinds of gardening systems,including raised beds,vertical gardens, greenhouses and drip irrigation.The cost varies,based on the specific job. "We've done a couple of jobs where the basic installation was two 4-by-4 raised beds and two stackable towers and you do that for $950.That's with soil,without plants and with mulch around the base,"Kanaris said. In their own yard,in New Port Richey, Kanaris and her husband replaced existing plant beds of variegated viburnum with heads of broccoli,heads of cabbage,turnips and lettuces. "It doesn't have to be in a traditional rectangular garden plot.We've even tucked it in along our fence lines,"Kanaris said. Stewart thinks an increasing number of people are interested in growing their own food not only to be healthy,but to save money,too. "We feel like it's going to be more and more attractive,"Stewart said."The cost of food has been skyrocketing."For more information about GreenDream's services,classes and hours,call (727) 4625326,email info@greendreamsfl.com or visit www.greendreamsfl.com.on her first round with her husband and son that she decided to return with her son and his girlfriend.The Lutz woman plans to encourage others to try it. "I'm going to be talking it up,"she said. Mark Clare,who lives near the fairway, plays traditional golf but enjoys Softgolf,too. "It's easy,yet it is not as easy as it appears to be,"Clare said."It's a different kind of challenge. "It doesn't take talent,just the desire to get out and have a good time and try something new,"Clare said."My wife was able to enjoy herself a great deal.The couple that we had with us can't wait to have their children out here." The Softgolf course is open 6 p.m.to 10 p.m.Friday and Saturday at the club,23253 Plantation Palms Blvd.,weather permitting. The course closes in the event of rain or temperatures below 55 degrees. The game is priced inexpensively to provide affordable family fun,said Ray Baldorossi Jr.,CEO of Softgolf.It costs $8.50 for children 12 and under;$10.75 for adults; and $31.50 for a family of four. The origin of the game dates back decades. Baldorossi said he was fooling around in his backyard in the mid-1970s when he thwacked a 4-inch inflatable basketball with a golf club.His dad Ray Baldorossi Sr. happened to be watching when his son sent the inflatable ball soaring.It turns out,that in addition to his day job as an aeronautical engineer,the senior Baldorossi enjoyed tinkering.The day after he saw the inflatable ball go soaring,the inventor went to work to develop a new brand of golf.He started experimenting with different kinds of balls and clubs,Baldorossi said.Five years later,his dad and his mother,Blanche, had five patents. The game his dad invented used a giant golf ball and was played under the lights on a course in Delran,N.J.That business closed in the late 1980s,and Baldorossi's father passed away four years later. But Baldorossi didn't want his father's invention to die as well.It turns out the younger Baldorossi likes to tinker,too,and he's been refining the game.He came up with the idea of glow-in-thedark balls.He makes them by hand,using a machine to shape the balls out of foam. Then he drills dimples into them and gives them several coats of paint.He bathes the balls in a sunning booth to give them a special glow. Baldorossi has found a new,more durable,lightweight material he plans to begin using soon.Then he will be able to ORGANIC,from page 1 GOLF,from page 1 Special clubs are used for Softgolf.

The Tampa Bay Bulldogs won the 11U division.The Mayhem took second in 10U, while the 9U North Tampa Titans,12U Railcats and 13U Raiders all finished third in their age group.The event raised about $7,000 for the two little leagues. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Wiregrass Ranch boys basketball team had a lot of questions entering this season. The Bulls (17-10) lost seven seniors,including four starters,from last year's squad that went 22-8 en route to the program's first district championship and playoff berth. The players have changed,but the results were similar this year.Wiregrass Ranch defeated Steinbrenner 85-75 in the Class 7A-District 9 semifinals on Feb.8,clinching a postseason spot. "It was the best feeling,"said junior forward Rico Kerney,the Bulls only returning starter.He then added,"This shows coach (Jeremy) Calzone is a great coach.We all wanted to win for him and each other." Calzone,the only coach in the program's six-year history,wasn't nervous about being the only Pasco County team among four Hillsborough squads in 7A-9. "We've been playing Hillsborough schools since we opened,"Calzone said. "What I was worried about was all the new guys being nervous,and they haven't." The Bulls weren't just moving up junior varsity players and converting guys off the bench into starters this year.They also had to work in two transfers;guards Christian Parra and Dimarco Burgess who came from Wesley Chapel and Freedom,respectively. The squad lost three of its first four games while allowing almost 92 points per contest. "We were a little shaky at the beginning," Burgess said."We practice every day,we don't take days off,and we've also done a lot of team bonding.We've been together every day since August,so we're doing so much better." Wiregrass Ranch came up short of consecutive district titles,falling to tournament host Chamberlain 80-65 on Feb.10.Parra scored 17 against the Chiefs (16-7),while Burgess added nine.Kerney posted 10 points and 10 rebounds. In the semis,Wiregrass Ranch jumped out early on Steinbrenner (11-10) with a 103 lead midway through the first quarter,but the Warriors stormed back to tie it at 14 entering the second thanks to three 3-pointers by Isaiah Goncalves. Kerney heated up in the second,pouring in 14 of his game-high 32 points after being held off the scoreboard in the opening period. "I have a (right) ankle sprain and I was thinking about it the whole first quarter," Kerney said."My teammates and coach Calzone told me to just block it out. It hurt,but it was more I was thinking about it." The Bulls went into halftime leading 3929,but the Warriors weren't done. Steinbrenner scored 16 of the of the first 22 points coming out of the locker room,tying the game at 45 in less than 4 minutes. Wiregrass Ranch trailed 63-59 minutes into the fourth when Calzone changed the defense from a 1-3-1 zone to 2-3 to get more bodies attacking the offensive glass to negate the Warriors'height advantage. "Their coach (Steve Williams) did some things in the second half that gave us trouble,"Calzone said."We're always going to be out-sized,so we just challenge our big guys to do the best they can rebounding." Burgess,the shortest Bulls player at 5foot-9,scored six of his 10 points in the fourth while picking up steals on back-toback possessions.He also pulled down a critical rebound setting up Larrentz Manora for two of his 22 points to give the Bulls a 75-71 lead they never relinquished. "He might be the smallest guy,but he has the biggest heart,"Calzone said. Burgess and Kerney each had seven steals.Kerney also added 14 rebounds. Goncalves led Steinbrenner with 24 points including six 3-pointers.Joey Maloney scored 19,while Ke'Shawn Ingram and Drake Wagner added 14 and 11,respectively.

Allen wrapped his arms around the 15 players huddled at center court and told them how proud he was of what they accomplished this season. The Warriors dropped their first appearance in the regional quarterfinals,42-39 to St.Petersburg on Feb.9,but Allen had nothing except good things to say about his program's rise from nine wins in 2009-10 to 22 in this season. "You talk about going out and doing some special things,until tonight,we hadn't lost on this floor,"Allen said."We swept through our district,won the district championship in pretty convincing fashion,but it was how we were going about doing it. They embodied the word team." The Warriors (22-3) started strong in the first half,as junior guard Bailey Hooker knocked down a pair of 3-pointers to give her team a leg up.But the fast-paced Green Devils (13-10) offense and steady defense was enough to slow Steinbrenner. The Warriors also struggled from the free throw line,converting 50 percent of their attempts. "We had great opportunities to finish some buckets inside and they just didn't go down,"Allen said."The free throw line hurt us again.You know there's been several games all year long where we've been 40 percent or lower. I've been telling them all year long that there's going to be a game that's going to bite us." St.Petersburg kept the Warriors on their heels late in the third quarter and tied the game at 26 going into the fourth.The Green Devils took their first lead in the final period when Adesha Hobbs found an opening to lay the ball in,and Danielle Daniels'late free throw sent the game to overtime. The Green Devils overwhelmed the Warriors offense in the extra period. Hooker,Steinbrenner's leading scorer with 19.4 points per contest,was forced to the bench after fouling out.She finished with 10 points,eight in the first half. Rachel Briere had a team-high 11 points. Alexis Wright pulled down 11 rebounds, while Justice Thigpen blocked five shots. Allen said this year's seniors will be remembered as those who built the program. "They laid the foundation and all of the ground work for what we were trying to do and where we were trying to go,"Allen said. "We're going to try and come back next year and repeat what they did."Freedom falls at ClearwaterThe Freedom girls basketball team was unable to get past its Class 7A regional quarterfinals contests on Feb.8,losing at Clearwater 42-39.The Patriots (18-10) were led by Taylor Emery,who scored 12 points, while ShadŽ Williams added 11.St.Petersburg stuns Steinbrenner in OT For more girls regional basketball coverage, see page 15.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLast year the Land O'Lakes boys soccer team walked off their home field after 1-0 loss to Pasco in the regional quarterfinals as disappointed as a group of young men can be. The scene was reversed on Feb.10 as the Gators (23-3-2) exited Fort Walton Beach Choctawhatchee's pitch as 2-0 winners, earning a trip to the University of South Florida (USF) for the Class 3A state finals. "I'm so happy for these guys,"said Land O'Lakes coach Mark Pearson. The Gators bucked a recent trend of early playoff exits this season by claiming a regional championship with a convincing 50 win at Gainesville Eastside on Feb.8 before upending Choctawhatchee (22-4). Land O'Lakes has outscored its opponents 16-1 since losing to cross-town rival Sunlake 3-2 in the district finals on Jan.27. The Seahawks snatched away the Gators' chance of an eighth straight district title but gave Land O'Lakes the motivation needed to claim their first regional crown since 2000 and the second state finals berth in program history. "Losing to Sunlake on our home field woke us up because we thought we were going to just walk on the field and beat Sunlake,"said senior midfielder Nathan Dalton,who has been on the squad the last four years."Ever since then there's been a lot more intensity.We've used that as fuel, and we've been 10-times better." Senior midfielder/forward Miguel Laliberte,who transferred from Sunlake as a junior,said even the look of his teammates has changed since the district finals. "We've completely changed and I can see it in everyone's eyes the desire to win a state championship,"Laliberte said."Every single one of us has been talking about what we need to do to do that. We realized we have the a big target on our back because of all the wins we've had recently, but we can't go in thinking we're the No.1 team because we haven't done anything to prove it yet.We have to respect ever team and play our hardest in every game." The Gators got on the board less then 15 seconds into the state semifinals when Dalton found Josh Davis off the opening kick. "Getting that early goal was big,"Pearson said."I really surprised them and they were on their heels for a while.We had a couple more chances and I think we left two or three goals on the field." Davis added another tally in the 77th minute off a pass from Jake Frahm. Andy Garcia scored first against Eastside (19-6-2) in the 4th minute off a Laliberte assist.Garcia hit home his second of the night 6 minutes later. Davis added a pair of tallies of his own in the 30th and 31st minute to send Land O' Lakes into halftime up 4-0.Pat Lawson added the last late in the contest. The Gators'final challenge this year comes at the 3A state championship game against Plantation American Heritage (26-13) at USF on Saturday,Feb.18 at 11 a.m. Parking is $5 and admission is $9.Loss spurs Land O' Lakes to new heights Land O'Lakes senior midfielder Nathan Dalton said losing to Sunlake in the district finals woke the squad up. (File photos) Gators coach Mark Pearson has his team in the state finals for the first time since 1999. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comFor the second straight year,the Gaither boys soccer team had its season ended in the final four. Last year Durant knocked off the Cowboys a game before the finals,and this year it was Orange Park Fleming Island winning 2-0 in the Class 4A state semifinals on Feb.10.Gaither was senior laden and expected to go far in 2011-12 the opposite of what was anticipated this season. The Cowboys (20-5-1) made it back to the doorstep of the state title game despite losing 10 seniors from last year's squad,including their top two scorers,their starting goalkeeper and most of their midfield and defensive core. "No one expected us to get as far as this," said Gaither forward Jonas Bukh."We wanted to win and to make a statement,and we made a good statement I think." Cowboys coach Eric Sims said he cares about all of the 11 teams he's coached at Gaither,but this year was "one of the top" because of how the players came together. "Every game it seemed like everybody thought we were going to lose,"Sims said. "They kept pushing and came together as a family.They're like brothers and they're a part of my family.That's what brings success is when a team truly comes together.These guys did and I'm proud to be a part of it." The Cowboys had numerous chances in the first half against Fleming Island (23-1), but the Golden Eagles used their size advantage to stifle Gaither's attack before it could finish scoring opportunities. "They're a physical team and very direct,"Sims said."We definitely haven't seen a team that plays that physical." Fleming Island broke through in the 29th minute when the home squad buried a dead ball off a corner kick.The Golden Eagles added an insurance tally in the 56th. "We didn't match them physically,"Sims said."We did a better job in the second half, but by then we started throwing numbers forward,and they were able to get another goal because we were playing up." Senior goalkeeper Carlos de Oliveira,a converted midfielder,kept the Cowboys in it,making 12 saves including nine in the first half. "I said at the beginning of the playoffs we were going to go as far as our goalkeeper took us,and he took us this far and did another great job tonight,"Sims said. Bukh took care of the scoring in Gaither's 2-1 regional finals win at Kissimmee Osceola on Feb.7.The senior scored early in the second half to tie the game and added another off a pass from Jhonathan DaSilva. Bukh,who spent last year in his native Denmark after attending Gaither as a freshman and sophomore,finishes with a team-high 23 goals and nine assists. "I'm going to miss this team,"Bukh said. "I'm definitely going to remember everything about this year." By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentThe Academy at the Lakes boys basketball team couldn't overcome early offensive miscues as the Wildcats fell to Cambridge Christian,43-34 in the Class 2A-District 8 title game on Feb.11. Still,Wildcats coach Tom Haslam said his team played tough in solidifying the first postseason appearance in program history. "If you would have told me at the beginning of November that we could be a district runner-up and go play a road game for a regional game,being one of 32 teams left in the state,I'd say I'll take it,"Tom said. After the two teams combined for eight points in the first quarter,the Lancers (21-4) began to set the offensive pace after the academy (15-8) missed a pair of open 3point attempts. Cambridge's Phillip Johnson knocked down a long 3-pointer to give his team early momentum. The Wildcats tried to answer with outside shooting,but many were well off the mark.Tom said the game plan was to focus on perimeter shooting because of the Lancers'size advantage and defensive awareness. "We're not very good at going in there and getting tight,going at those guys and going up over the top,"Tom said.He then added,"We didn't think we could pound them inside." With his team down six midway through the third quarter,academy's Ethan Haslam found a rebound off of a wide 3-point attempt from teammate Jarrett Harvey and slammed it home for two of his 13 points to get the Wildcats within four. That's the closest it would get,as Cambridge pulled away heading into the final period. "Our kids will get over this real quick, we're still real proud of what we did,"Tom said.He then added,"We got our meat and potatoes,but this would have been gravy to win the title. We're young,we only have two seniors,so the future looks really bright."Gaither finishes two wins shortCambridge tops Wildcats for district title Freshman guard Ethan Haslam scored 10 in Academy at the Lakes'district finals contest.

(Photos by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com)By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comWharton girls basketball coach Chad Reed had one simple reason his team lost 57-42 to East Lake on Feb.9 in the Class 8A regional quarterfinals. "I just think we ran out of gas,"Reed said. The Wildcats (13-15) won three games in four days the week before to win a district championship despite entering the tournament four games below .500. Wharton was up by six after the first quarter and down only one at halftime, but the Eagles (15-12) forced the Wildcats into a man-to-man defense that sapped its remaining energy. East Lake came out fast in the third quarter and Wharton's tired legs showed. "Before we knew it,we were down 10,down 12,"Reed said. The Eagles made it a 10-point game, but Abbigale Kaczmarek knocked down a free throw to trim the lead to single digits. East Lake closed the third quarter on a 7-3 run and added a 4-0 spurt to start the fourth that ended any hopes at a comeback.Wharton was outscored 28-14 in the second half. "When you get to the regionals,it's a different game,"Reed said."It's one and done. If you don't bring your A game you're not going to win." Although the Wildcats had balanced scoring,with two players with nine points and another two with eight,none could crack double-digit. Wharton's inability to pull out the win and advance to the regional semifinals didn't dim Reed's outlook on the season. He was proud of his team's third straight trip to the playoffs despite some injuries that delayed when the Wildcats were playing at full strength. "It was a good run,"Reed said."These girls played so hard."CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 15,2012 15

At SR 54 loc a tion only.SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIt was a memorable night for the Academy at the Lakes girls basketball team. The Wildcats (21-5) dismantled Winter Haven All Saints'Academy (ASA) 71-33 in the Class 2A regional quarterfinals in their home gym on Feb.9,setting a program record with a 38-point playoff win. Andrea Mauger also had a special moment with 1:35 left in the first quarter.The junior forward cut up the right side to the baseline and hit a jumper from 10 feet out for her 1,000th career point. Mauger,who finished with 22 points and seven steals,started her high school career at Wesley Chapel High and transferred to the academy last year,the same season coach Karim Nohra moved from Wildcats to Wildcats program. "Coach Nohra has believed in me since I was a freshman.He said Mauger,you're going to be a 1,000-point scorer when I'm done with you,'"Mauger said with a laugh. Academy senior point guard Samantha Fernandez added,"Andrea works so hard, and she really is like the core.She holds it all together.I love having her as a teammate."Mauger is the second player in program history to reach 1,000-point mark,following teammate Amelia Oliver a few weeks ago."As soon as I saw her back in eighth grade I thought she was going to be a nice player,"Nohra said."I thought wow that girl is going to be tough. I told her she was going to be the next 1,000-point scorer I'd have,but I didn't know Amelia was coming here." Oliver transferred from Sunlake this year. The senior guard finished with a team-high 24 points against ASA. "We have a nice dynamic duo in Amelia and Andrea,"Nohra said."If one's off I go to the other.If both are on it's lights out." The Seahawks went 9-17 last year,a far cry from the heights Oliver has helped academy soar to this season. "I'm happy me and my teammates have been able to accomplish this together," Oliver said."It's definitely different from any other team I've been on." The Wildcats ran off a 12-2 start,but ASA (9-6) closed the gap to 21-14 at the end of the first quarter. Kaylaina Young put up seven of ASA's first-quarter points,a trend that soon stopped. "We denied (Young) the ball and made the other girls bring it up the floor,"NohraAcademy throttles All Saints' 71-33said."Then the turnovers started to happen." Nohra put in Alex Gittens to lock up Young.The senior accomplished her mission,holding Young to five points the rest of the night. "Alex Gittens did an awesome job," Mauger said."We wouldn't have won without her I don't think." Fernandez,an Oldsmar Christian transfer, put her team on her back in the second, scoring 15 of her 19 points to send the academy into halftime up 55-20. "I told her all you need to do is attack their wide zone,"Nohra said."If they don't collapse you shoot;if they collapse you kick out." The Wildcats'35-point lead forced a running clock during the second half, illustrating how far the program has advanced under Nohra's watch. "They were 0-15 the year before I got here,and the mentality was we'll get our uniforms on and go get our butts whipped," Nohra said."That mentality had to change, and they started working hard." That mentality is different from anything Fernandez had experienced before as Nohra demands maximum effort and quick decision-making. "Before I just used my speed,but he's made me look at the floor more,and I've come so far mentally,"Fernandez said."I'm so happy I came to Academy at the Lakes." The Wildcats travel to Avon Park Memorial Academy for the regional semifinals on Tuesday,Feb.14 at 7 p.m. Academy at the Lakes junior forward Andrea Mauger scored her 1,000th career point in a 71-33 victory against All Saints' on Feb. 9. (File photos) Wildcats senior point guard Samantha Fernandez scored 15 points in the second quarter against All Saints'mainly by attacking the basket. Academy at the Lakes senior guard Amelia Oliver scored a team-high 24 points to lead her squad past All Saints'on Feb. 9.

The game sort of like miniature golf on steroids involves hitting a lightweight,softball-sized golf ball around a nine-hole course. Oh,and its played at night using fluorescent balls,with lighted flags at each oversized hole. The concept of glow-in-the-dark is neat,said Beach,25,of Wesley Chapel.Its so much fun. Kathleen Dumas,Beachs girlfriend,had never played golf before she tried Softgolf.She had a blast.Terri Beach said she had such a good time By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe owners of an organic gardening shop in Odessa werent always into organic food. They eased into the world of foods grown without chemicals. They began by gradually changing their diet about eight years ago stocking up on fresh fruits and veggies at farmers markets, said Melissa Kanaris. As their interest intensified,Melissa and her husband,Pete,decided to help others grow their own food. They opened GreenDreams,an organic gardening shop in Odessa,last year.Its primary market area includes Odessa,Wesley Chapel,Lutz,Land OLakes and North Tampa,as well as communities in West Pasco and North Pinellas counties. The organic gardening business is a division of Clean Cut Lawn & Landscape Inc.,a landscaping company that Pete Kanaris has been operating for 12 years.0 Melissa Kanaris extols the virtues of homegrown foods on GreenDreamswebsite. The flavor surpasses anything youve bought recently from the store,she writes.

Cannon, agriculture agent Jimmy Higgins and businessmen George Nikolai, Bob Williams and Joe Collura led a group of local businessmen to start a fair to showcase Pascos resources. It seems Pascos resources have impressed, because the 65th annual Pasco County Fair will run Feb. 20-26. The fair kicks off with a parade Monday, Feb. 20 at 1 p.m. in downtown Dade City. The theme of the parade and the fair is Ridin, Rockin and Livestockin, and a trophy will be awarded to the entry judged as the best depicting the theme. Other trophies will be given for best of parade, best adult civic unit, best youth civic unit, best marching unit, best equestrian unit, best individual western rig, best commercial unit, best high school marching band, and best middle school band. The parade will start at Rodney B. Cox Elementary School, travel east on Dr. Martin Luther King Boulevard, south on Seventh Street, and west on Florida Avenue before ending at Pasco Elementary School. Fair events will be held at the Pasco County Fairgrounds, 36722 SR 52. This years ticket prices are $8 for adults and $5 for children ages 6-12. Children ages 5 and younger get in free. On Tuesday, Feb. 21, the fair is an even bigger bargain, with gate admission of $3. Entertainment runs the gamut with baby pageants, midway rides, magic, racing pigs, a rodeo, a demolition derby, comedy, music, and new this year a Grizzly bear show, where audiences can observe a 7-foot-tall, 600-pound Grizzly bear and two cubs interact with their handlers. Also on hand is an Elvis tribute, a juggler, exhibits by school and community groups, and shows featuring livestock, goats, poultry, rabbits, plants, artwork and needlework. The midway will feature more than 30 rides, including thrill rides, kiddy rides, and favorites such as the merrygo-round and bumper cars. Discounted wristbands will be sold through Sunday, Feb. 19, at Walgreens locations in Pasco County and North Tampa. Fair hours are from 3-11 p.m. on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Friday, the fair is open from 3 p.m.-midnight; 10 a.m.-midnight on Saturday; and noon-7 p.m. on Sunday. Parking is free.For a list of events or more information, visit www.pascocountyfair.com or call (352) 567-6678. The Pasco County Fair Demolition Derby will be Sunday, Feb. 26 at 2 p.m. Spectators can watch free with gate admission. Drivers must supply their own cars and are limited to two full-size cars and one 4-cylinder car.

Downs Boulevard, but the medical care facility is gearing up to begin posting more positions this month.The hospital, part of the Florida Hospital Tampa Bay Division of the Adventist Health System, expects to begin posting jobs on its Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel website during February. Right now, were just getting our infrastructure set up, said Joyce Nelson, assistant vice president of human resources and wellness for the hospital. Hospital officials want to get an electronic application system in place to enable a smooth process for both the hospital and applicants, Nelson said. We want to make it easy, Nelson said. Hospital officials know there is a high volume of interest, Nelson said. In addition to posting openings online, the hospital also will be having job fairs. Those interested in employment opportunities can stay abreast of the latest news by checking www.fhwesleychapel.com. While the hospital prepares to hire a work force, progress continues on the projects construction. The three-story hospital will open with 80 beds. It has been designed to accommodate up to six stories, with a total of about 300 beds, as the community grows and healthcare needs expand. The hospital is designed with the patient in mind, hospital officials have said. Its front door, for instance, is less than 50 feet away from an MRI scanner.It also is designed so that future expansion will never be needed in front of the building, keeping the front entrance from being pushed to the middle of the campus, a problem hospitals sometimes encounter when they expand.The idea is to keep things as simple as possible for people who are healing and those visiting them, hospital officials have said.

Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportIf the Upper Tampa Bay Trail is your preferred spot for exercise, you may be interested in attending a public meeting Thursday, Feb. 23 to discuss a proposal to extend and improve the trail in northwest Hillsborough County. Hillsborough County is proposing to build 4.3 miles of 12-foot-wide paved trail. The addition would extend from Van Dyke Road north through the Brooker Creek Headwaters Preserve to Lutz-Lake Fern Road, then east along Lutz-Lake Fern Road to the Suncoast Trail. Under the plans, the parking facility at the Suncoast Expressway also will be replaced with a new, larger trailhead on Lutz-Lake Fern Road, approximately one mile west. The total construction cost is approximately $3.7 million. Construction is expected to start in September 2012 and be completed in August 2013.The existing trail is 7.25 miles, starting at a trailhead at Memorial Highway and Montague Street and ending at Peterson Road Park. The trail is popular with bikers, walkers, joggers, skaters, horseback riders and anglers. County staff will be at the meeting to discuss the details of the project and answer any questions. The meeting begins at 6:30 p.m. at Martinez Middle School, 5601 W. Lutz-Lake Fern Road.For more information, please call the Public Works Department at (813) 2725275.Upper Tampa Bay Trail topic of meetingWednesdayBaked chicken thigh, potatoes au gratin, mixed vegetables, whole wheat bread with margarine, fresh fruit, low-fat milk.ThursdayThree bean beef chili, white rice, whole kernel corn, whole grain roll with two margarines, mixed fruit, low fat milk.FridayPork chop patty with brown gravy, black eye peas with turkey ham, country vegetable medley, white bread with margarine, peaches, low-fat milk.MondayLasagna casserole, garlic spinach, Italian vegetable medley, whole grain bread with 2 margarines, peaches, low-fat milk.

Linda and I quickly became friends and soon I was sharing my dream to open my own salon, recalls Rita. When I was ready five years later, Linda was there to support me and today we are business partners. Rita and Linda opened their upscale salon, Eclipse Salon and Spa, last October in a quaint shopping area just off SR 54 close to the Suncoast Expressway called North Pointe Village. Local residents best know this area as the Land O Lakes location for Carrabbas Italian Grill. The salons exquisite dcor flows with marble tile floors, comfortable Europeanstyle shampoo bowls, lots of room between stylists and an open color bar stocked with top-of-the-line color and chemical treatments. In the five months that Eclipse has been open it has seen a steady increase in clientele. Were the only upscale salon in this area east of Land O Lakes and west of Trinity, said Rita. Many clients like our convenience to their homes and to the Suncoast. Eclipse is open to 8 p.m. two nights a week and all day Saturday to accommodate clients busy schedules. A typical Eclipse client is a young professional between the ages of 28 and 40, Rita said, although the salon has clients of all ages. Young professionals like us because we stay very current with the styles and trends, she said. We think of your hair as an accessory you wear every day. Our clients go home knowing how to style their hair and if they have any problems doing so, we want them to come back for another consultation at no charge. A clients first visit to Eclipse begins with an in-depth 30-minute consultation with a stylist. We listen and set goals and expectations before we clip the first piece of hair, said Rita. An inch to a client may mean something entirely different than a inch to a stylist. We make sure we fully understand what the client wants before we recommend a cut, color or chemical treatment. Rita has been a hairdresser for 26 years and is a master stylist with Redken. She has won many awards for her work in Total Look Makeovers and Evening Style. Eclipse is the second salon that Rita has owned. She previously owned a salon in Jonesboro, Ill. for 12 years. Working alongside Rita at Eclipse as both stylist and makeup artist is Pamela French. Pam has 30 years experience and was a trainer at many prestigious academies in New York, Atlanta, Miami and Los Angeles. As a child I loved to color and paint. In my teens I fell in love with science. My career has combined these two loves, said Pam. Redken has a perfect mix of art and science. Also working at Eclipse are stylists Melissa VanShalk and Janet Briesacher.

By Kyle LoJaconokloj acono@cnewspu b s.co mLucy Smith-Rogers dreams for the day when she can take her two sons to school without the hassles of road construction slowing her down. Smith-Rogers, of New Tampa, drops off her youngest son, Josh, at Hunters Green Elementary before doing the same with her oldest son, Tommy, at Benito Middle. She lives about 15 miles from the facilities, which are next to each other on Cross Creek Boulevard, but the delays associated with the project along with traffic make the trip almost 30 minutes. It didnt used to take that long, SmithRogers said. When they both went to Hunters Green last year it only took about 10-15 minutes. Smith-Rogers also has her daily commute to downtown Tampa slowed by the same roadwork that makes dropping off her sons more time consuming. She said it takes her about 30 minutes longer to get to work than it did a year ago. Smith-Rogers is one of the 66,500 drivers who use Bruce B. Downs from County Line Road to East Bearss Avenue. That daily traffic is greater than the number of vehicles that use I-75 from the split with I-275 down to East Fletcher. Edward Arnold, Hillsborough project manager, said the county is paying for the four-stage, $80.84 million widening project to reduce traffic congestion created by increasing population in New Tampa and Wesley Chapel. Once completed the entire stretch of Bruce B. Downs will expand from four to eight lanes. Its been years in the planning stages, Arnold said. The first two segments construction started in early 2010 and will be completed together. The first two segments stretch from Pebble Creek Drive to Palm Springs Boulevard in the south. Arnold said the job is on pace for completion in late 2012. The third section begins at Palm Springs and extends south to Bearss, while the final stage goes from Pebble Creek north to the Pasco County line.Arnold said the third phase of the project is scheduled to last from the middle of 2013 to late 2016, with the fourth segment lasting from the middle of 2014 to 2015.The reason we did the middle section first is thats the area that includes the onramp to I-75, Arnold said. We wanted to get that taken care of so people can use the newly widened interstate instead of Bruce B. Downs while we finish that job. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is currently widening I-75 from SR 54 in Wesley Chapel south to Fowler Avenue and has plans to expand the interstate north to SR 52 in Dade City. That whole area along I-75 has been growing in population the last 10 or so years, said FDOT public information officer John McShaffrey. The department is planning for even more growth with these projects. For now, the construction on Bruce B. Downs is an inconvenience for SmithRogers and the others who share the roadway, but eventually it will make travel easier. Maybe by the time both of my boys are in high school and can drive themselves itll be done, Smith-Rogers said with a laugh. Maybe, but Im not counting on it anytime soon.Bruce B. Downs project presses forward

The idea of a four-day school week has been proposed as a cost-saving measure in the face of the Pasco County School Districts ongoing budget crisis. The first forum to discuss the proposal was Thursday in Dade City. In order to find creative solutions to our funding needs without jeopardizing the availability of programs and services for students, our task force has spent a great deal of time researching the implications of a possible four-day school week, said Steve Luikart, chairman of the task force exploring the four-day school option. We believe it is important to stay openminded, so that we can make the best possible decisions for our students. Our task force is eager to have community input and has gathered feedback via an online survey. These forums are one more way to ensure that everyone has an opportunity to weigh in on this important topic. The remaining forums, at 6:30 p.m., are: Wednesday, Feb. 15 Charles S.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 15,2012 13 make a ball in 5 minutes versus more than an hour. The Softgolf enthusiast,who has wanted to revive the game for years,got his chance when he met Steve McDonald,one of the owners of Plantation Palms golf course. When Ray brought this to me,it was a natural fit for me.I just fell in love with it, said McDonald,a member of the PGA.He came out and showed me what his game was all about,and I was very intrigued by the passion,his idea,and really wanted to see a man live out his dream. We provided the facility for Ray to test it out,McDonald said. The game is good for the golf course, too,McDonald said. We can generate revenue while our golf course is sleeping,McDonald said. The game is geared for nearly anybody, Baldorossi said. There are rightand left-handed clubs,of different colors and sizes.Players who have tried the game have been as young as 3 and as old as their 80s.He recommends children be at least 5 years old before hitting the course.It takes 45 minutes to an hour to complete nine holes. Right now,Plantation Palms is the only place in the world to play Softgolf. Of course,Baldorossi hopes that will change.Hes in talks with seven locations now,and he envisions franchises popping up all over the place.And,theres already a greater Tampa championship tournament scheduled for March 11. In Baldorossis eyes,Softgolf has the potential to be really,really big. No matter what,Baldorossi said his greatest reward is to see family and friends out on the course,having a good time. For more information,visit www.softgolf.net. superior.Every day that a vegetable is off the vine,it loses a significant portion of its nutritional value. She also writes about the intangible rewards of gardening. There is a sense of satisfaction watching this natural wonder that youve helped to create,grow.Every day you see changes in the garden:Plants grow,flowers bloom,fruit forms on the vine and vegetables seem to grow right before your eyes. She notes other benefits,as well. It is a wonderful learning experience for kids.It teaches them self-sufficiency,responsibility and work ethic.Donating surplus veggies to neighbors or your local food pantry helps them understand the importance of tithing and community. Theres an emotional component,too. It lifts your spirits.It is really hard to be in a melancholy mood while you are touching and smelling the gifts of Mother Earth, observes Kanaris,whose family has been gardening for generations. GreenDreams,at 14510 Black Lake Road, has a small retail room stocked with gardening books,heirloom seeds,organic fertilizer and a botanical-based pest control. Out back,theres a nursery,where assorted trees and plants are available for purchase and various gardening techniques are on display.There are plants growing in roof gutters,recycled milk crates and vertical garden towers. The company also has a small classroom, where Eric Stewart,a GreenDreams employee,teaches classes three days a week.The classes are typically around $15,but there are also four free classes each month. Stewart is a huge proponent of helping others to become more self-sufficient.Hes heavily involved in the organic gardening community and has a website,www.codegreencommunity.org,which features a wide range of information on gardening topics.At GreenDreams,Stewart teaches an organic vegetable gardening class,offers instruction on pickling and canning foods and teaches Introduction to Permaculture.Permaculture emphasizes using science, ecology and perennial plants to provide a sustainable source of food.Its all about self-sufficiency.I think thats definitely the basis of this business teaching people how to take care of themselves,Kanaris said. We work with edible perennials,a lot of things grow very well in Florida without a lot of care, Kanaris said.It isnt just traditional garden plots and fruit trees. Both Stewart and Kanaris are enthusiastic about the maringa tree,which comes from northern India. They can get as tall as 40 feet,Kanaris said.These leaves are full of nutrition, she said,while grasping a branch of the tree.They have four times the vitamin C of oranges. Stewart calls it the anti-aging tree. Its high in polyphenols,which are antioxidants,Stewart said.The more you eat, the younger you look and the more vibrant you feel. The company also sells blueberries and assorted trees,including olive,apple,nectarine,peach,macadamia nut and neem trees. Vegetables are not grown at the Odessa site,but the company will get vegetable plants started for their customers. We make little soil blocks,Kanaris said. Then they can plant those in their gardens.A tray of seedlings,with 50 plants goes for $40. Beyond selling gardening supplies and providing classes,the company offers consultation services that include soil testing, sunlight and drainage assessments,pruning instructions,mulching and composting and advice on vegetable gardens,perennial vegetables,fruit and medicinal trees,edible bushes and vines,native and pollinator plants and the incorporation of livestock, such as chickens,ducks,rabbits or goats. They also can discuss such issues as drought tolerance and rain harvesting. Consultations typically take a couple of hours and cost $130. The company also offers installation of various kinds of gardening systems,including raised beds,vertical gardens, greenhouses and drip irrigation.The cost varies,based on the specific job. Weve done a couple of jobs where the basic installation was two 4-by-4 raised beds and two stackable towers and you do that for $950.Thats with soil,without plants and with mulch around the base,Kanaris said. In their own yard,in New Port Richey, Kanaris and her husband replaced existing plant beds of variegated viburnum with heads of broccoli,heads of cabbage,turnips and lettuces. It doesnt have to be in a traditional rectangular garden plot.Weve even tucked it in along our fence lines,Kanaris said. Stewart thinks an increasing number of people are interested in growing their own food not only to be healthy,but to save money,too. We feel like its going to be more and more attractive,Stewart said.The cost of food has been skyrocketing.For more information about GreenDreams services,classes and hours,call (727) 4625326,email info@greendreamsfl.com or visit www.greendreamsfl.com.on her first round with her husband and son that she decided to return with her son and his girlfriend.The Lutz woman plans to encourage others to try it. Im going to be talking it up,she said. Mark Clare,who lives near the fairway, plays traditional golf but enjoys Softgolf,too. Its easy,yet it is not as easy as it appears to be,Clare said.Its a different kind of challenge. It doesnt take talent,just the desire to get out and have a good time and try something new,Clare said.My wife was able to enjoy herself a great deal.The couple that we had with us cant wait to have their children out here. The Softgolf course is open 6 p.m.to 10 p.m.Friday and Saturday at the club,23253 Plantation Palms Blvd.,weather permitting. The course closes in the event of rain or temperatures below 55 degrees. The game is priced inexpensively to provide affordable family fun,said Ray Baldorossi Jr.,CEO of Softgolf.It costs $8.50 for children 12 and under;$10.75 for adults; and $31.50 for a family of four. The origin of the game dates back decades. Baldorossi said he was fooling around in his backyard in the mid-1970s when he thwacked a 4-inch inflatable basketball with a golf club.His dad Ray Baldorossi Sr. happened to be watching when his son sent the inflatable ball soaring.It turns out,that in addition to his day job as an aeronautical engineer,the senior Baldorossi enjoyed tinkering.The day after he saw the inflatable ball go soaring,the inventor went to work to develop a new brand of golf.He started experimenting with different kinds of balls and clubs,Baldorossi said.Five years later,his dad and his mother,Blanche, had five patents. The game his dad invented used a giant golf ball and was played under the lights on a course in Delran,N.J.That business closed in the late 1980s,and Baldorossis father passed away four years later. But Baldorossi didnt want his fathers invention to die as well.It turns out the younger Baldorossi likes to tinker,too,and hes been refining the game.He came up with the idea of glow-in-thedark balls.He makes them by hand,using a machine to shape the balls out of foam. Then he drills dimples into them and gives them several coats of paint.He bathes the balls in a sunning booth to give them a special glow. Baldorossi has found a new,more durable,lightweight material he plans to begin using soon.Then he will be able to ORGANIC,from page 1 GOLF,from page 1 Special clubs are used for Softgolf.

The Tampa Bay Bulldogs won the 11U division.The Mayhem took second in 10U, while the 9U North Tampa Titans,12U Railcats and 13U Raiders all finished third in their age group.The event raised about $7,000 for the two little leagues. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Wiregrass Ranch boys basketball team had a lot of questions entering this season. The Bulls (17-10) lost seven seniors,including four starters,from last years squad that went 22-8 en route to the programs first district championship and playoff berth. The players have changed,but the results were similar this year.Wiregrass Ranch defeated Steinbrenner 85-75 in the Class 7A-District 9 semifinals on Feb.8,clinching a postseason spot. It was the best feeling,said junior forward Rico Kerney,the Bulls only returning starter.He then added,This shows coach (Jeremy) Calzone is a great coach.We all wanted to win for him and each other. Calzone,the only coach in the programs six-year history,wasnt nervous about being the only Pasco County team among four Hillsborough squads in 7A-9. Weve been playing Hillsborough schools since we opened,Calzone said. What I was worried about was all the new guys being nervous,and they havent. The Bulls werent just moving up junior varsity players and converting guys off the bench into starters this year.They also had to work in two transfers;guards Christian Parra and Dimarco Burgess who came from Wesley Chapel and Freedom,respectively. The squad lost three of its first four games while allowing almost 92 points per contest. We were a little shaky at the beginning, Burgess said.We practice every day,we dont take days off,and weve also done a lot of team bonding.Weve been together every day since August,so were doing so much better. Wiregrass Ranch came up short of consecutive district titles,falling to tournament host Chamberlain 80-65 on Feb.10.Parra scored 17 against the Chiefs (16-7),while Burgess added nine.Kerney posted 10 points and 10 rebounds. In the semis,Wiregrass Ranch jumped out early on Steinbrenner (11-10) with a 103 lead midway through the first quarter,but the Warriors stormed back to tie it at 14 entering the second thanks to three 3-pointers by Isaiah Goncalves. Kerney heated up in the second,pouring in 14 of his game-high 32 points after being held off the scoreboard in the opening period. I have a (right) ankle sprain and I was thinking about it the whole first quarter, Kerney said.My teammates and coach Calzone told me to just block it out. It hurt,but it was more I was thinking about it. The Bulls went into halftime leading 3929,but the Warriors werent done. Steinbrenner scored 16 of the of the first 22 points coming out of the locker room,tying the game at 45 in less than 4 minutes. Wiregrass Ranch trailed 63-59 minutes into the fourth when Calzone changed the defense from a 1-3-1 zone to 2-3 to get more bodies attacking the offensive glass to negate the Warriorsheight advantage. Their coach (Steve Williams) did some things in the second half that gave us trouble,Calzone said.Were always going to be out-sized,so we just challenge our big guys to do the best they can rebounding. Burgess,the shortest Bulls player at 5foot-9,scored six of his 10 points in the fourth while picking up steals on back-toback possessions.He also pulled down a critical rebound setting up Larrentz Manora for two of his 22 points to give the Bulls a 75-71 lead they never relinquished. He might be the smallest guy,but he has the biggest heart,Calzone said. Burgess and Kerney each had seven steals.Kerney also added 14 rebounds. Goncalves led Steinbrenner with 24 points including six 3-pointers.Joey Maloney scored 19,while KeShawn Ingram and Drake Wagner added 14 and 11,respectively.

(Photo by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com) By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentSteinbrenner girls basketball coach J.R. Allen wrapped his arms around the 15 players huddled at center court and told them how proud he was of what they accomplished this season. The Warriors dropped their first appearance in the regional quarterfinals,42-39 to St.Petersburg on Feb.9,but Allen had nothing except good things to say about his programs rise from nine wins in 2009-10 to 22 in this season. You talk about going out and doing some special things,until tonight,we hadnt lost on this floor,Allen said.We swept through our district,won the district championship in pretty convincing fashion,but it was how we were going about doing it. They embodied the word team. The Warriors (22-3) started strong in the first half,as junior guard Bailey Hooker knocked down a pair of 3-pointers to give her team a leg up.But the fast-paced Green Devils (13-10) offense and steady defense was enough to slow Steinbrenner. The Warriors also struggled from the free throw line,converting 50 percent of their attempts. We had great opportunities to finish some buckets inside and they just didnt go down,Allen said.The free throw line hurt us again.You know theres been several games all year long where weve been 40 percent or lower. Ive been telling them all year long that theres going to be a game thats going to bite us. St.Petersburg kept the Warriors on their heels late in the third quarter and tied the game at 26 going into the fourth.The Green Devils took their first lead in the final period when Adesha Hobbs found an opening to lay the ball in,and Danielle Danielslate free throw sent the game to overtime. The Green Devils overwhelmed the Warriors offense in the extra period. Hooker,Steinbrenners leading scorer with 19.4 points per contest,was forced to the bench after fouling out.She finished with 10 points,eight in the first half. Rachel Briere had a team-high 11 points. Alexis Wright pulled down 11 rebounds, while Justice Thigpen blocked five shots. Allen said this years seniors will be remembered as those who built the program. They laid the foundation and all of the ground work for what we were trying to do and where we were trying to go,Allen said. Were going to try and come back next year and repeat what they did.Freedom falls at ClearwaterThe Freedom girls basketball team was unable to get past its Class 7A regional quarterfinals contests on Feb.8,losing at Clearwater 42-39.The Patriots (18-10) were led by Taylor Emery,who scored 12 points, while Shad Williams added 11.St.Petersburg stuns Steinbrenner in OT For more girls regional basketball coverage, see page 15.

SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLast year the Land OLakes boys soccer team walked off their home field after 1-0 loss to Pasco in the regional quarterfinals as disappointed as a group of young men can be. The scene was reversed on Feb.10 as the Gators (23-3-2) exited Fort Walton Beach Choctawhatchees pitch as 2-0 winners, earning a trip to the University of South Florida (USF) for the Class 3A state finals. Im so happy for these guys,said Land OLakes coach Mark Pearson. The Gators bucked a recent trend of early playoff exits this season by claiming a regional championship with a convincing 50 win at Gainesville Eastside on Feb.8 before upending Choctawhatchee (22-4). Land OLakes has outscored its opponents 16-1 since losing to cross-town rival Sunlake 3-2 in the district finals on Jan.27. The Seahawks snatched away the Gators chance of an eighth straight district title but gave Land OLakes the motivation needed to claim their first regional crown since 2000 and the second state finals berth in program history. Losing to Sunlake on our home field woke us up because we thought we were going to just walk on the field and beat Sunlake,said senior midfielder Nathan Dalton,who has been on the squad the last four years.Ever since then theres been a lot more intensity.Weve used that as fuel, and weve been 10-times better. Senior midfielder/forward Miguel Laliberte,who transferred from Sunlake as a junior,said even the look of his teammates has changed since the district finals. Weve completely changed and I can see it in everyones eyes the desire to win a state championship,Laliberte said.Every single one of us has been talking about what we need to do to do that. We realized we have the a big target on our back because of all the wins weve had recently, but we cant go in thinking were the No.1 team because we havent done anything to prove it yet.We have to respect ever team and play our hardest in every game. The Gators got on the board less then 15 seconds into the state semifinals when Dalton found Josh Davis off the opening kick. Getting that early goal was big,Pearson said.I really surprised them and they were on their heels for a while.We had a couple more chances and I think we left two or three goals on the field. Davis added another tally in the 77th minute off a pass from Jake Frahm. Andy Garcia scored first against Eastside (19-6-2) in the 4th minute off a Laliberte assist.Garcia hit home his second of the night 6 minutes later. Davis added a pair of tallies of his own in the 30th and 31st minute to send Land O Lakes into halftime up 4-0.Pat Lawson added the last late in the contest. The Gatorsfinal challenge this year comes at the 3A state championship game against Plantation American Heritage (26-13) at USF on Saturday,Feb.18 at 11 a.m. Parking is $5 and admission is $9.Loss spurs Land O Lakes to new heights Land OLakes senior midfielder Nathan Dalton said losing to Sunlake in the district finals woke the squad up. (File photos) Gators coach Mark Pearson has his team in the state finals for the first time since 1999. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comFor the second straight year,the Gaither boys soccer team had its season ended in the final four. Last year Durant knocked off the Cowboys a game before the finals,and this year it was Orange Park Fleming Island winning 2-0 in the Class 4A state semifinals on Feb.10.Gaither was senior laden and expected to go far in 2011-12 the opposite of what was anticipated this season. The Cowboys (20-5-1) made it back to the doorstep of the state title game despite losing 10 seniors from last years squad,including their top two scorers,their starting goalkeeper and most of their midfield and defensive core. No one expected us to get as far as this, said Gaither forward Jonas Bukh.We wanted to win and to make a statement,and we made a good statement I think. Cowboys coach Eric Sims said he cares about all of the 11 teams hes coached at Gaither,but this year was one of the top because of how the players came together. Every game it seemed like everybody thought we were going to lose,Sims said. They kept pushing and came together as a family.Theyre like brothers and theyre a part of my family.Thats what brings success is when a team truly comes together.These guys did and Im proud to be a part of it. The Cowboys had numerous chances in the first half against Fleming Island (23-1), but the Golden Eagles used their size advantage to stifle Gaithers attack before it could finish scoring opportunities. Theyre a physical team and very direct,Sims said.We definitely havent seen a team that plays that physical. Fleming Island broke through in the 29th minute when the home squad buried a dead ball off a corner kick.The Golden Eagles added an insurance tally in the 56th. We didnt match them physically,Sims said.We did a better job in the second half, but by then we started throwing numbers forward,and they were able to get another goal because we were playing up. Senior goalkeeper Carlos de Oliveira,a converted midfielder,kept the Cowboys in it,making 12 saves including nine in the first half. I said at the beginning of the playoffs we were going to go as far as our goalkeeper took us,and he took us this far and did another great job tonight,Sims said. Bukh took care of the scoring in Gaithers 2-1 regional finals win at Kissimmee Osceola on Feb.7.The senior scored early in the second half to tie the game and added another off a pass from Jhonathan DaSilva. Bukh,who spent last year in his native Denmark after attending Gaither as a freshman and sophomore,finishes with a team-high 23 goals and nine assists. Im going to miss this team,Bukh said. Im definitely going to remember everything about this year. By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentThe Academy at the Lakes boys basketball team couldnt overcome early offensive miscues as the Wildcats fell to Cambridge Christian,43-34 in the Class 2A-District 8 title game on Feb.11. Still,Wildcats coach Tom Haslam said his team played tough in solidifying the first postseason appearance in program history. If you would have told me at the beginning of November that we could be a district runner-up and go play a road game for a regional game,being one of 32 teams left in the state,Id say Ill take it,Tom said. After the two teams combined for eight points in the first quarter,the Lancers (21-4) began to set the offensive pace after the academy (15-8) missed a pair of open 3point attempts. Cambridges Phillip Johnson knocked down a long 3-pointer to give his team early momentum. The Wildcats tried to answer with outside shooting,but many were well off the mark.Tom said the game plan was to focus on perimeter shooting because of the Lancerssize advantage and defensive awareness. Were not very good at going in there and getting tight,going at those guys and going up over the top,Tom said.He then added,We didnt think we could pound them inside. With his team down six midway through the third quarter,academys Ethan Haslam found a rebound off of a wide 3-point attempt from teammate Jarrett Harvey and slammed it home for two of his 13 points to get the Wildcats within four. Thats the closest it would get,as Cambridge pulled away heading into the final period. Our kids will get over this real quick, were still real proud of what we did,Tom said.He then added,We got our meat and potatoes,but this would have been gravy to win the title. Were young,we only have two seniors,so the future looks really bright.Gaither finishes two wins shortCambridge tops Wildcats for district title Freshman guard Ethan Haslam scored 10 in Academy at the Lakesdistrict finals contest. (File photo) Whartons surprising season comes to an end Kaczmarek fires up a shot against East Lake in the regional quarterfinals on Feb. 8. (Photos by Glenn Gefers of www.photosby3g.com)By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comWharton girls basketball coach Chad Reed had one simple reason his team lost 57-42 to East Lake on Feb.9 in the Class 8A regional quarterfinals. I just think we ran out of gas,Reed said. The Wildcats (13-15) won three games in four days the week before to win a district championship despite entering the tournament four games below .500. Wharton was up by six after the first quarter and down only one at halftime, but the Eagles (15-12) forced the Wildcats into a man-to-man defense that sapped its remaining energy. East Lake came out fast in the third quarter and Whartons tired legs showed. Before we knew it,we were down 10,down 12,Reed said. The Eagles made it a 10-point game, but Abbigale Kaczmarek knocked down a free throw to trim the lead to single digits. East Lake closed the third quarter on a 7-3 run and added a 4-0 spurt to start the fourth that ended any hopes at a comeback.Wharton was outscored 28-14 in the second half. When you get to the regionals,its a different game,Reed said.Its one and done. If you dont bring your A game youre not going to win. Although the Wildcats had balanced scoring,with two players with nine points and another two with eight,none could crack double-digit. Whartons inability to pull out the win and advance to the regional semifinals didnt dim Reeds outlook on the season. He was proud of his teams third straight trip to the playoffs despite some injuries that delayed when the Wildcats were playing at full strength. It was a good run,Reed said.These girls played so hard.CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 15,2012 15

The Wildcats (21-5) dismantled Winter Haven All SaintsAcademy (ASA) 71-33 in the Class 2A regional quarterfinals in their home gym on Feb.9,setting a program record with a 38-point playoff win. Andrea Mauger also had a special moment with 1:35 left in the first quarter.The junior forward cut up the right side to the baseline and hit a jumper from 10 feet out for her 1,000th career point. Mauger,who finished with 22 points and seven steals,started her high school career at Wesley Chapel High and transferred to the academy last year,the same season coach Karim Nohra moved from Wildcats to Wildcats program. Coach Nohra has believed in me since I was a freshman.He said Mauger,youre going to be a 1,000-point scorer when Im done with you,Mauger said with a laugh. Academy senior point guard Samantha Fernandez added,Andrea works so hard, and she really is like the core.She holds it all together.I love having her as a teammate.Mauger is the second player in program history to reach 1,000-point mark,following teammate Amelia Oliver a few weeks ago.As soon as I saw her back in eighth grade I thought she was going to be a nice player,Nohra said.I thought wow that girl is going to be tough. I told her she was going to be the next 1,000-point scorer Id have,but I didnt know Amelia was coming here. Oliver transferred from Sunlake this year. The senior guard finished with a team-high 24 points against ASA. We have a nice dynamic duo in Amelia and Andrea,Nohra said.If ones off I go to the other.If both are on its lights out. The Seahawks went 9-17 last year,a far cry from the heights Oliver has helped academy soar to this season. Im happy me and my teammates have been able to accomplish this together, Oliver said.Its definitely different from any other team Ive been on. The Wildcats ran off a 12-2 start,but ASA (9-6) closed the gap to 21-14 at the end of the first quarter. Kaylaina Young put up seven of ASAs first-quarter points,a trend that soon stopped. We denied (Young) the ball and made the other girls bring it up the floor,NohraAcademy throttles All Saints 71-33said.Then the turnovers started to happen. Nohra put in Alex Gittens to lock up Young.The senior accomplished her mission,holding Young to five points the rest of the night. Alex Gittens did an awesome job, Mauger said.We wouldnt have won without her I dont think. Fernandez,an Oldsmar Christian transfer, put her team on her back in the second, scoring 15 of her 19 points to send the academy into halftime up 55-20. I told her all you need to do is attack their wide zone,Nohra said.If they dont collapse you shoot;if they collapse you kick out. The Wildcats35-point lead forced a running clock during the second half, illustrating how far the program has advanced under Nohras watch. They were 0-15 the year before I got here,and the mentality was well get our uniforms on and go get our butts whipped, Nohra said.That mentality had to change, and they started working hard. That mentality is different from anything Fernandez had experienced before as Nohra demands maximum effort and quick decision-making. Before I just used my speed,but hes made me look at the floor more,and Ive come so far mentally,Fernandez said.Im so happy I came to Academy at the Lakes. The Wildcats travel to Avon Park Memorial Academy for the regional semifinals on Tuesday,Feb.14 at 7 p.m. Academy at the Lakes junior forward Andrea Mauger scored her 1,000th career point in a 71-33 victory against All Saints on Feb. 9.
