She is dressed in jeans,a gray sweatshirt and white sneakers and works in a fluorescent-lit room. Say hello to the newest Mrs.World. Lufriu,42,didn't always aspire to this. "If I had to throw on high heels,I'd kind of just cringe,"she said with a laugh."I'd just rather be a simple overall mom,housewife." She started doing pageants at 19 as a way to bring out her personality,primarily through public speaking and interviews. "The hardest question is:Tell me about yourself,"said the Lutz mother of three a 12-year-old son,Brandon,an 8-year-old daughter,Savannah,and a 26-year-old stepson,Chad. She estimated she has been in a total ofMrs. World spreading her word April Lufriu stood in disbelief, hung her head and thanked God when she heard her name called as the winner of the 2011 Mrs. World contest.

Sheppard said he has aspired to become a principal for the past five or six years and is pleased to have the opportunity to assume the leadership post. That said,he also knows that high school principals today face daunting challenges. The biggest one,he said,is to engage a wide variety of students in a manner that makes all of them want to come to school. Freedom has more than 2,000 students, drawing from a range of economic backgrounds.The school,at 17140 Commerce Park Blvd.in Tampa,draws from Lutz and New Tampa,as well as the University Community area and areas to the south. Some students are dedicated and have a plan for their education,including which colleges they would like to attend,Sheppard said.Others are less motivated,the principal said. The key is to have adults with the skills and personalities to engage students and to give them a desire to come to school, Sheppard said. The new principal said his first order of business will be to listen and observe. "I have a lot to learn about those important people who are already here,"Sheppard said. "That will take a little bit of time,"Sheppard said. The educational leader,who lives in Lutz, is the former assistant principal for curriculum at Wharton High.He joined Hillsborough County's public school district in 1992,as a teacher at Leto High.Sheppard then transferred to Wharton in 1999,continuing as a teacher until 2004,when he was promoted to assistant principal for student affairs.He served as assistant principal for curriculum at Wharton beginning in 2006. He filled a vacancy created by the promotion of Chris Farkas,who will become area leadership director.In that role,Farkas will be working with principals at a number of schools in the district's Area VII. Farkas began his district career in 1999 as an alternative education/dropout prevention teacher.He came to Freedom as principal in 2006,moving from an assistant principal spot at Tampa Technical High.Freedom High gets new principal Chris Farkas David Sheppard Big winners at Special OlympicsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comGaither High hosted the Special Olympics games for Hillsborough County's northern schools on Feb.17,bringing out hundreds of athletes ready to show what they can do. The event is known as Stampede Day,which had 20 schools participating this year.Events included the tennis and softball throws,races and the shot put to name a few. One of the athletes competing for the first time at Gaither was Steinbrenner student Rebecca Plumb,who did the 100and 200-meter dashes. "We practiced a lot,"said Plumb,pointing to herself andGaither High student April Dean hugs her mother, Amy, after the former completed the 200-meter dash at the Special Olympics on Feb. 17.

By John MortonLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentFor nearly two decades,Stacy Hosman refused to get on the back of a motorcycle. Once she relented,it took her only two months to decide it was time to move up to the driver's seat."When my kids were little,I didn't want to get on the back of my husband Jeff's motorcycle,"Hosman,of Dade City,said."I told him I would do it when my daughter turned 18."Once I did it,I realized I didn't belong on the back of a bike.I wanted to do my own thing.I own horses on 20 acres in Dade City.I equate it to this:Who would want to be on the back of a horse?'" Hosman was one of a handful of motorcycle trainees going through riding drills on a recent Sunday at Wharton High School's parking lot.The program,which has been required since July 0 2008 as part of motorcyclist certification,consists of 15 hours five in the classroom and 10 on the pavement.The program is sponsored by Florida's Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Hosman is impressed with what she's learned. "There is a big learning curve with this," she said."I can't believe all that goes into it." Louie Kyler,the supervisor on hand Sunday,receives plenty of positive feedback from students like Hosman who take his course. "Just a couple of month ago,a guy who had just completed the training came up to me and told me the class saved his life that something had taken place on the road and what he learned had prepared him for it," the 30-year veteran instructor said."Hearing heartwarming stories like that makes this job worthwhile.The statistics show that the number of motorcycle fatalities in the state has decreased since the program's inception,and that's really all that counts." There are thousands of riders,however, who have not benefited from any training. Many got their licenses long before the requirement was set in place. "We estimate that 25 to 30 percent of the riders out there have no training,"Kyler said."You hope they'll see value in taking the course,even if they don't have to.You talk to a biker of 30 years about a basic training course,and they look at you like you're nuts.But I'll be darned that whenever we get one,they'll tell us couple of hours in,Wow,I didn't know that,'after we point something out.It never fails." Meanwhile,Hosman's interest in learning to ride is indicative of an ongoing trend of more female riders showing up for classes. "In the early 80s,when I started doing this,you'd see maybe two throughout a day of four classes about two for every 50," Kyler said."Today,it's at least two for every class of 12.Women don't want to be on the back of bikes anymore." Hosman can attest to that.Despite having complete trust in her husband's driving, she got antsy fast and even felt out of place. "I was amazed how comfy I felt,but I still must admit I found myself doing some backseat driving,"she said."I would lean forward and ask,So,do you see that?'And he'd say, Yes,'but if I didn't ask I wouldn't know.It just doesn't feel right,not being in control." Furthermore,Hosman finds both a social and relationship benefit to her decision to get behind the handlebars. "I was losing my husband on a lot of weekends because of his motorcycle trips, and now that my kids are grown I don't want that to continue,"she said."He even got into horses for me,but now it's time for me to get involved in what he likes." So,once this course ends,is a motorcycle of her own a no-brainer for Hosman? "Oh,absolutely,"she said."Sooner than later."Interested in participating in the state's Rider Training Program?

Who's whoBorn and raised in Moore, Oklahoma, Mark Yockey MD, attended the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He completed his residency in August, and he has practiced with Florida Medical Clinic for about six months. His new and fresh knowledge of Urology brings a sophisticated dynamic to the Urology department at Florida Medical Clinic. His special interests include general urology, kidney stone disease, robotic surgery and urologic cancer. Dr. Yockey became intrigued with Urology after gaining knowledge about all the new technology. During his residency, he was able to get immense amounts of hands-on experience with new technology. When he is not spending quality time with his children, he enjoys doing anything outdoors such as hunting, fishing and golfing. MeetDr. Yockey Did You Know...About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer. The Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test is how prostate cancer is screened-prostate biopsy diagnoses. Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms and is most often found by diagnostic tests. Some advanced prostate cancers can slow or weaken your urinary stream or make you need to urinate more often. If the prostate cancer is advanced, you might develop blood in your urine (hematuria) or trouble getting an erection (impotence). Age is the strongest risk factor for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is very rare before the age of 40, but the chance of having prostate cancer rises rapidly after age 50. Almost 2 out of 3 prostate cancers are found in men over the age of 65. Race and ethnicity play a major factor in diagnosing prostate cancer. Several types of cells are found in the prostate, but almost all of prostate cancers develop from the gland cells. Some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly, but most of them grow slowly. Who's whoOriginally born in Jamaica, Brent Sullivan MD, moved to New Jersey to further his education at New Jersey's University of Medicine and Dentistry, while also achieving his doctorate in medicine and completing his residency. Dr. Sullivan has been a part of Florida Medical Clinic's staff for 10 years. Some of his special interests include sexual dysfunction, robotic surgery, prostate cancer, vasectomy, and kidney stones. He played soccer in college and coached local soccer teams. He still enjoys painting watercolors and sketching for recreation. His other hobbies include running, cycling, playing golf, and art appreciation. Dr. Sullivan takes about three weeks out of every year to travel. Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Yockey are located at: 14547 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Tampa, FL 33613 813.979.7733www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com 2012or Stone Age? MeetDr. Sullivan By:Erica Collura Although millions of years apart,there is one small thing the Stone Age and 2012 have in common,stones.Not the stones that are used to build houses,or the stones used to build sidewalks,but the stones the human body creates. Even though kidney stones are very uncomfortable,the stones can be very treatable. With new technologies and appropriate training,Dr.Yockey is able to guide his patients to an easy recovery. According to Dr.Yockey, most kidney stone cases occur in men.Dr.Yockey diagnoses a patient with Nephrolithiasis,or kidney stones,by referring patients to Florida Medical Clinic's radiology department to get a cat scan,which is a diagnostic test."Cat scans will almost always detect kidney stones,"said Dr.Yockey."There is only one type of kidney stone it does not detect,and that particular stone is extremely rare." There are about five different known types of kidney stones. "Once the kidney stone is passed,it gets sent to a geology lab to be analyzed,"he said. Fortunately,Dr.Yockey can choose from many different options to attack the stones."In some cases,we can give the patients a prescription to ease the pain,while encouraging patients to drink plenty of water,so the stone can just pass on it's own without surgery." "In more severe cases that involve surgery,I could use a method called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy."Dr. Yockey said."This uses sound waves to fragment the stone,so it can be passed." "In other cases,we can use laser technology to act like a jackhammer to the stone. Depending on the type,size and location of the stone,it will determine which surgical method to use." Dr.Yockey describes today's technology innovative because thirty years ago doctors would have to make a large incision in a patient's abdomen,then remove and filet the kidney to remove the stones."In most of those cases,patients would end up losing their kidneys." "As far as preventatives go,I recommend a heart healthy diet,and a consumption of less than two grams of sodium a day."Dr.Yockey said."I also recommend people to stay well hydrated as dehydration is the number one cause of kidney stones."Working together forGOOD HEALTHThe Laker / Lutz News& 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 22,2012 4 thousands of homes in the Tampa Bay area during the past three decades.For more information,visit www.westbaytampa.com.WORKSHOP FOR ENTREPRENEURSAspiring entrepreneurs can learn the fundamentals of starting a business at a Friday, Feb.24 workshop by the Pasco Economic Development Council.Carol Hendrix of the University of South Florida's Small Business Development Center will lead the session from 8:30-10 a.m.at the council's office at 16506 Pointe Village Drive Suite 101 in Lutz.

The branch will be built on one of four outparcels at a site that Pasco County has approved for a 196.150-square-foot Walmart Supercenter and 21,372-square-foot garden center. It is unclear when Walmart plans to proceed with construction,said Dawn Sutton,a planner for Pasco County.Walmart officials did not respond to several requests for information by The Laker. An access road to the site will be constructed off Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard, which is a new north-south road that ultimately will run from SR 56 to SR 54. "Walmart is required to construct a portion of Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard,"Sutton said. A typical Walmart Supercenter has about 300 employees,according to Walmart's website. AutoZone also has submitted a site plan to the county for one of the other outparcels,but company officials from AutoZone could not be reached for comment.WESTBAY TO OPEN MODELHomes by WestBay plans to open a model home this month in LakeShore Ranch,a 519-acre master-planned community off US 41.The nine executive designs in the gated community will have base prices ranging from $279,990 to $349,990.Homes by WestBay was founded by Roger Gatewood and Willy Nunn,who have built

He orders decaf coffee and water and the usual at this establishment fish and chips.In the nearly two hours Jeffris is at the restaurant,he says hello to at least six people,including a table of three women who say they "thoroughly enjoyed"his show a waitress and one of the owners. He stops to chat with anyone who wants to talk. Jeffris,53,is a self-proclaimed entertainer who has been playing the "snowbird circuit,"for about 10-15 years.He doesn't limit his shows to Zephyrhills though.He plays all around the country in county and town fairs.His next show,however,is just around the corner in New Port Richey on Wednesday,Feb.29,where he will perform for General Electric retirees. "This is what I do for a living,"he said. But Rainbow Village in Zephyrhills is his home away from home which is Indianapolis during the winter season and has been for four years. "I don't have any worries at Rainbow," Jeffris said. Jeffris may own a unit at Rainbow Village,but he can call all of Zephyrhills his home.With his professional attire,sandblonde beard and hair,Jeffris is pretty recognizable around town. "I chase the snowbird circuit,"Jeffris said. He got this way because of two things: his personality and his ability. Jeffris received his first guitar for Christmas when he was 13.By his junior year in high school,he had formed a band Steve Jeffris and The Country Entertainers and recorded his first album. By the time he was out of high school,there was another album and another band The Circle City Express. "You go through a lot of band names through the years,like you're changing socks or undershorts,"Jeffris said. He also spun records out of high school at his local radio station and that helped him memorize song lyrics, song titles,album artwork and album titles effortlessly. Already immersed in music,Jeffris spent a lot of his early career in Nashville. "I guess you might say trying to make it,"Jeffris said. "You chase that and then it seems as you mature and you get a little bit older you realize that maybe you're chasing the wrong thing. "It probably was better that I didn't go the Nashville route,"he added.That doesn't mean Nashville didn't almost hook him. In the late 80s,he got a call from an agency in Nashville about the possibility of getting a five-piece band together to open for a budding country star. Jeffris decided against it,preferring the life he had established to the rigors of a superstar's touring life. "I almost did,and I decided not to because I was already making a good living as a musician and entertainer,"he said."I was traveling some,but I had control over it and I didn't want to give that up. "Turns out that that up-and-coming star was Garth Brooks,"Jeffris said with a chuckle."I really feel I made the right move,"he continued."I've had a ball in the last 35 years." In 1990,Jeffris left the security of his job as a steel pipe and tubing distributor to pursue a career as a fulltime entertainer. Armed with his guitar and a personality driven to feed off entertaining the crowd, Jeffris has compiled 11 CDs. But it's the live shows that really get Jeffris excited and fresh after 35 years of performing. "The audience always revives you,"Jeffris said."My therapy is get me on the phone and find me a show give me an hour on stage and I'm well again." In his live shows,he sings and accompanies himself on guitar with no tracks or canned music.The only piece of machinery up on stage is a drum machine to fill out the sound. Jeffris believes the authenticity and directness of his show are reflected in his popularity. He does it the "old-fashioned way."He books himself and manages all the administrative work that comes with his profession. He plays an estimated more than 400 shows per year.His shows are generally either two hours with an intermission or a straight-through one-hour show. "They like to see people do it,"Jeffris said.In fact,part of Jeffris'act is trying to make people in the community and audience the star. As part of his show at Rainbow Village, he always gets the manager of the park a special something.And when he can help it, that something involves bringing the community together. There was the time he brought in the Zephyrhills High marching band to his show.One time,he stopped mid-show to place an order for a pie for his manager and a second later,a Sonic waitress rolled up on skates with the pie in hand. He is constantly trying to top himself when it comes to surprising his manager.He is just as determined to improve his show in general. Despite three-plus decades of playing, Jeffris is constantly tweaking his routine and says he'll play as long as he doesn't sound or look bad to the audience.As if preplanning for possible denial,he even made a pact with his wife,Sharon,that she would tell him when it was time to end his career."I'm not satisfied with my show yet,"he said.He might be the only one in Zephyrhills.Traveling entertainer a staple in Zephyrhills Steve Jeffris has been playing music for more than 35 years. Despite his Midwest music roots and professional connection to Nashville a city steeped in music history Jeffris loves his gig as a traveling entertainer chasing the "snowbird circuit" in Pasco County and Central Florida.

Warriors teammate Erin Visoky did the tennis-ball throw and 25-meter run. "I love everything here,"Visoky said."I love the tennis-ball throw,the runs,hanging out with my friends and seeing all the fans in the stands." Visoky has competed at the event for the last four years going back to when she attended Gaither.She enjoyed the opportunity to get back to her first high school. "That's great because I get to come back and see all my old friends and teachers," Visoky said. Alex Lange was representing Wharton High at the event,competing in the shot put. "I've done (Stampede Day) four times and I really look forward to supporting my friends from my school,"Lange said.He then added,"I've only done the shot put one time before,and it's actually really easy to learn. You have to put a lot of effort into it though." Two of the volunteers at the games were 10 pageants.She was a dental hygienist before she and George started their marble company. When the business started,she didn't know how to read a ruler.Now she helps her husband run the place,from taking measurements to doing templates. Lufriu's work schedule has been a bit more demanding ever since she's donned her newest crown. "It's a big team effort,"she said,noting how her husband and parents help bear the load."If I had to do it alone,there's no way." So how exactly did a working mom who did pageants in her teenage years land back on the path toward tiaras? Two words:Retinitis pigmentosa (RP). RP is one name for a group of inherited vision disorders that causes progressive degeneration of the retina,the light sensitive membrane that coats the inside of the eyes. The majority of RP cases gradually erode peripheral vision to the point of loss and in some forms of RP,central vision may also be affected.Originally,Lufriu became invested in the cause when her sister was diagnosed with RP in 2007.It was in 2010 that Lufriu received more life-altering news:Lufriu and her son,Brandon,and daughter,Savannah,all suffered from the affliction to varying degrees. "I felt like I was back at square one.I would be driving and crying,"she said,questioning why this was happening to her and her family. Rather than stand back and wait for RP to take its toll on the affected members of the Lufriu family,she returned to the pageant circuit.This time,it wasn't about self-discovery or personal growth,there was a bigger motivating factor. "That's my ultimate goal,is to make (RP) a household name and in my lifetime to findWORLD,from page 1a cure or something to halt the condition for my kids,"Lufriu said."That's the purpose why I was put on this Earth,and I found that out at the age of 40." Her Hollywood-esque story caught the attention of pageant judges. Lufriu remembers the time a judge told her he had written down "winner"during a competition after hearing Lufriu's mission. "When you're speaking with someone, and you have a message that really strikes someone like Oh wow,'I tell you,you're going to stand out bigger than a Raquel Welch,"Lufriu said. "I think if I didn't have a story behind me,I don't think I would have walked away with Mrs.America nor Mrs.World." David Marmel,cofounder with his wife, Elaine,and CEO of the Mrs.America and Mrs.World contests,was just as taken with Lufriu's background. "I mean c'mon,take a look at who this woman is and her family structure and what she does professionally and personally and philanthropically. "She's juggling home,family,career simultaneously and in a magnificent way.On top of that,she's carrying a burden that is indescribable indefinable rather to describe,"Marmel added."My God,I don't think I'm articulate enough to define this amazing woman." When her name was called,she stood suspended in disbelief and hung her head and thanked God. "It really hits you when you wake up the next morning,"Lufriu said."I think I woke up at like five in the morning and go Wow.' That's all I could say,was wow." Soon she was saying "RP." With the Mrs.World crown bestowed on her,Lufriu sought to use her increased visibility to raise RP awareness. "People can really relate to April because she is so personally close to the mission of Mrs. World stands with her family as they celebrate her achievement. Lufriu was chosen among 58 women. (Photo courtesy of April Lufriu)the Foundation Fighting Blindness and retinal diseases,"said Allie Gebhardt,senior manager of media relations for the Foundation Fighting Blindness."People can not only relate to her,but really look to her as an example of having a positive attitude about it and make the best of a situation through raising awareness and putting the focus on research and the future." But the business-savvy Mrs.World is the first to point out awareness doesn't pay the bills. "I need the funds in order to make this happen,"she said."I can speak and bring awareness as much as I can,but if I don't get the contributions from the public,what am I doing?"

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLand O'Lakes High has been found guilty of six violations by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) involving two students who are siblings. The Gators must forfeit 44 athletic contests,including 23 football games,16 junior varsity volleyball matches and five boys weightlifting meets.The school was fined $3,200 and the entire athletic department is on probation until June 1,2013.The FHSAA's report states a "concerned parent"told Land O'Lakes about the potential violations on Feb.3.The school conducted an internal investigation and the two students withdrew from Land O'Lakes on Feb.6.Corey Sobers,FHSAA spokesman,said the final ruling was given to the school on Feb.13.Land O'Lakes can appeal. The FHSAA report states the family was "assisted by a coach and a football booster parent,who helped them to obtain and submit a false address to allow the students to attend Land O'Lakes High School,though they actually lived outside the district."The same address was used in August 2012 when the younger sibling enrolled at Land O'Lakes as a freshman. Sobers said the football coach was Matt Kitchie,who was hired in 2009 but was relieved of his duties following an unrelated off-the-field incident at the end of the 2010 season. Portions of Land O'Lakes'self-report released by the FHSAA state Kitchie knew one of the students'parents because they both coached together at a college in Kentucky. The parent told Kitchie the player wasn't happy at his school in Hillsborough County. "(Kitchie) talked about how to orchestrate the documents needed that would allow (name redacted) to enroll at LOLHS," the self-report states. "Upon further review by the school,we determined that the address being used was at a local business, owned by football booster-parents." The self-report states the booster,who was not identified,was "hesitant"to go along with the plan "but complied because he did not want to fall out of favor with his son's coach." Kitchie,now the coach at Leto,denies any involvement. "I had nothing to do with this,"Kitchie said."It's completely false."Summer Romagnoli,spokeswoman for the Pasco School District,said no other Land O'Lakes faculty was part of the investigation.The booster involved is banned from any contact with Gators athletics. The Laker/Lutz News has learned the football player in question is quarterback Ryan Bird.The senior transferred from Hillsborough High for his junior year. Ryan,who was an International Baccalaureate student at both schools,started two games as a junior and 10 contests, including the kickoff classic,in 2011. FHSAA bylaws state a team must forfeit any contest in which an ineligible player was on the active roster even if they did not play.Ryan was on the Gators'roster for all 23 games,including two kickoff classics,the last two years and was a part of five Land O' Lakes'boys weightlifting meets last season. The Gators went 9-2 in 2010,reaching the playoffs for the 14th straight season. Sobers said the program must vacate that postseason appearance,ending the streak at 13.Land O'Lakes finished 7-3 in 2011 without making regionals. Ryan has one sibling,a younger sister named Madison.Steve Bird,Ryan and Madison's father,is an assistant football coach at the University of South Florida.He coached at Eastern Kentucky University from 2005-06,the same time Kitchie was a graduate assistant at the college.Steve Bird did not return multiple phone and email requests for comment on this story.Land O'Lakes could have been fined $2,500 for each of the 32 contests that either of the ineligible students played in for a total of $80,000.Sobers said the amount was lessened because the school self-reported the violations. Sobers said the Gators are eligible for the postseason in other sports this year,but another violation by any Land O'Lakes athletic program during the probation could result in playoff bans. The FHSAA report states the school is "making changes to the enrollment requirements."It also states Land O'Lakes principal Ric Mellin "accepted full responsibility for the administration of these sports."Land O' Lakes ruled guilty of recruiting violations Former Land O'Lakes football coach Matt Kitchie was found to have been part of the illegal recruitment of Ryan Bird, who has since withdrawn from the school. (File photos) Former Gators quarterback Ryan Bird is at the center of six recruiting violations at Land O'Lakes High. By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comHarold Givens wasn't happy and he decided to do something about it. His daughter,Jade,was playing AAU basketball in 2003 when Givens decided there was room for improvement. "We figured we could do it better,we could do it more effectively,"Givens said."So we started Tampa Bay Inferno." And with that spark,Givens and his nononsense basketball regime began. Givens called AAU pressure packed,noting how kids aren't there to solely have fun. They're there to learn and win in the process. "If you don't measure up,you don't play. If you don't compete and win a spot,you don't receive a spot,"Givens said. Givens has applied his philosophy to his recreational league as well,the Junior Magic, which practices in sync with the Inferno. "We serve a clientele that's being underserved,and that's for people that want the truth and want their kids to be taught," Givens said. Currently,Inferno includes seven girls teams ranging from sixth-grade to high school players.The AAU season goes from late February to October including roughly 15 tournaments and traveling within Florida,to Georgia,all the way to Virginia. Givens'success didn't come without trials and tribulations.He said people originally took his kindness for weakness,including sticking their hands into the organization's pocket. "I learned on the fly how to run a business,"Givens said."I watch where the money goes.I watch my people,I watch the parents.If we have to dismiss a parent and a kid,we have no problems." Givens also has shied away from dealing with parents and politics.He has no qualms cleaning house. "They want things their way and they don't want to follow the rules as far as Tampa Bay Inferno,"Givens said."That's really not accepted here. We're going to do this thing right." Part of the reason Givens strives for a nonpolitically charged environment is because his organization serves kids from different backgrounds.Kids come from Wesley Chapel,Lutz,Land O'Lakes and from as far away as Zephyrhills and Polk County. One thing that translates,no matter where kids come from,is Givens'yelling. "You have two types of kids:kids that can deal with aggressiveness and some kids that can't,"Givens said. While Givens has tried to temper his attitude,there's a lot of yelling.He wants kids to have fun and achieve,so long as they don't mind a bit of screaming along the way. Anika Moffitt,12,is in her first year with the Inferno and said she has no problems with Givens'techniques. "Anybody can go out there and tell themselves to quit,but you have to have a strong mind to tell yourself to keep going,"Moffitt said."He'll even walk over to the door and tell you to leave." Givens added,"It's not for the faint of heart.That's why I love this country so much this country has choices.You can choose to keep your kids here or you choose not to.It doesn't bother me." And Givens'at-times abrasive attitude has attracted kids more than it has scared them off. "You gotta let Coach (Givens) coach," said Carol Brower,whose daughter, Stephanie,is in her third year with the Inferno."If he's gonna yell at your kid to get your kid motivated,that's what you gotta let him do." Brower said she noticed immediate improvement in her daughter's game and Stephanie wouldn't play anywhere else. Anne Dykeman said Givens'intimidating and gruff exterior isn't the whole story. "He might tell you what you're doing wrong,but he builds you back up," Dykeman said. Some of Givens'colleagues don't agree with his coaching mentality,but none can argue with the results.The Inferno's sixthgrade team was the Youth Basketball of America national runner-up in addition to the AAU state champions. "I want to be a national powerhouse," Givens said."The ultimate goal,we may not reach it,is for everyone of our kids to get to college.Every single one.I want them all to obtain college scholarships." For more information on the Inferno,call Givens at (813) 997-9933 or email TBInferno@hotmail.com.

The Gators (23-4-2) lost in the Class 3A championship 3-1 to Plantation American Heritage at the University of South Florida on Feb.18,forcing them to wait another year for the program's first state title. Land O'Lakes had momentum entering halftime with the score 1-1,but a pair of quick strikes by the Patriots (26-0-3) out of the locker room sealed the win.American Heritage scored 39 seconds into the second half and found the back of the net in the 46th minute. "We came out a little flat coming out of halftime,"said 15-year Gators coach Mark Pearson."They made some good combination plays in the middle of the field and unfortunately we didn't defend very well, and not just individually but as a unit." Land O'Lakes had its share of opportunities in the second half,including five free kicks inside or near the 18-yard box and a cross from Nathan Dalton headed just wide left by Sean Young. "We threw as much as we could going forward,and were able to hold them to three and not give anything else up in the counterattack,"Pearson said."We just didn't finish our opportunities. What we did do well their goalkeeper covered up well." The Gators'goal came in the 10th minute less than 2 minutes after American Heritage opened up the scoring.Land O' Lakes'Josh Davis sent a long cross from right to left,which Miguel Laliberte sent back toward the middle for Adam Weinstock to head home. The Gators were unable to find the back of the net again despite outshooting the Patriots 20-10. "It hasn't really sunk in yet that we made it all the way here and lost,"said Dalton,a senior midfielder/forward."A lot of the kids were just lying on the ground,but we just told everybody to keep their heads up because we made it this far." Land O'Lakes'finals run comes after losing 10 seniors from a year ago.The current Gators were unable to win the program's eighth straight district championship,but claimed their first regional title since 2000. "It's been a great season for us,"Pearson said.He then added,"We'll have a good group coming back.We're going to miss the guys who are leaving." Land O'Lakes loses another 10 seniors this year. "Most of the seniors here have been around for four years,and they've done a tremendous job for us,"Pearson said. "They've represented the program well,and not just on the field but in the classroom too.We have a lot of AP and IB kids that really put themselves through academically a lot of rigor.They're great young men." Among the graduating are the Gators' top-five points recorders:Dalton,Davis, Laliberte,Andy Garcia and Jake Frahm."I can't even explain in words how bad this hurts,"said Frahm,a midfielder."Senior year,all you want to do is hold that ring up and have everyone be jealous looking at you. We haven't been past the quarterfinals of regionals since our freshman year when we won there.We wanted to build off each other and we did that this year.We played with each other getting to this game.I think we fell apart a little in this game,but we still played with heart;still gave it our all and came up short."Frahm said the team's heart is what he will always remember about this year's team. "That first game against Berkley (Prep) we lost 4-1,and that was the start of our season,"Frahm said."We had to start building off each other and came close as a family at school and also on the pitch.That heart brought us together to this game." Dalton added,"We never gave up.Even in the last couple seconds when there was 30 seconds left everyone was still trying."Gators just short of program history Land O'Lakes coach Mark Pearson, center, consoles seniors Andy Garcia, seated left, and Nicholas Kempton after losing the state finals.

The 20-year veteran has won more than 400 games and his teams have won nine district championships,but his Wildcats (23-5) helped him do something completely new on Feb.18. The academy defeated Winter Garden Foundation Academy (9-12) 64-28 in the Class 2A regional finals,sending Nohra and the Wildcats to their first final four. "This feels much better than the journeys I've had before,"Nohra said."I'd rather do this than what I did the past eight times I've been here at this position. It feels pretty darn good to go dancing." During his last 10 years coaching Nohra has guided teams to nine regional finals,including the last four straight starting at Wesley Chapel High from 2008-10 and the last two seasons at the academy. Junior forward Andrea Mauger has been coached by Nohra the last three years and was happy to give him the special gift. "It's amazing because he's done so much to make me a better player,so to be able to give him something back feels great,"said Mauger,who had 13 points."My dream came true;the team's dream came true." The regional championship is also the school's first in any sport. "I don't even know what to say,"said senior guard Amelia Oliver."I'm just so excited. I'm glad to be playing with this team." The Wildcats had an off shooting night, going 4-30 from 3-point land.They led 19-16 after the first quarter,but their defense began to suffocate Foundation after that. The academy allowed only 12 points in the final 24 minutes and six after halftime. Senior point guard Samantha Fernandez's quickness led the Wildcats'press defense, producing 14 steals while adding 10 rebounds. "I expected to come out and jump on them quick,"Fernandez said."That was our intention,and we did a great job of that.All of us played well defensively." Fernandez also racked up 15 points and 11 assists a quadruple double. "Her performance is what we needed out of her tonight,"Mauger said."She's fast and quick.When she plays smart she's unstoppable." Oliver had a team-high 22 points despite fighting the flu.The Wildcats also got 14 points,11 rebounds and six steals from Vanessa Vincent.Alexis Holler posted six steals and four rebounds. The academy blew past its regional semifinals contest on Feb.14 at Avon Park Walker Memorial (20-1),winning 85-37. Mauger had a game-high 27 points. Oliver added 20 points,while Fernandez and Vincent added 14 and 12,respectively.

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Academy at the Lakes boys basketball team continued sailing into uncharted waters with a 49-48 victory at Lake Wales Vanguard on Feb.16 in the Class 2A regional quarterfinals. The win is the Wildcats'first in the playoffs,just one of a line of new things done by the program this year.The trip to the postseason is also a program first as is finishing a season above .500."This whole year has been so great,"said junior guard/forward Igwe,a Freedom High transfer."I love it here." The academy (15-8) had an interesting fight getting to Vanguard (16-3).Their pregame meal was delayed and then they got lost on the way to the game."We had to change into our gear in the bus,"Igwe said."A couple of the guys fell asleep,so we had to wake them up,and they were all confused.We got there like 15 minutes before the game. We weren't into the game like we should have been until the half."The academy went 3-17 shooting in the first quarter but trailed only 22-20 entering halftime.Much of the poor shooting was thanks to Vanguard's 6-foot-7 center Jean Remy Esor.Wildcats sophomore center Evan Gordy has faced players as tall as 6-foot-10,so he has experience looking for ways to break down such giants. "I realized he wasn't as fast reacting back to the ball,"Gordy said."He'd shift to one side and I'd stay on the other to cut to the basket.Then I tried to use my strength to box him out to get put backs.I also saw he would jump on pump fakes because he'd always go for the block." The game stayed close to the end and included a last-second shot.Vanguard stole the ball with about 3 seconds remaining and got up a floater that hit the backboard and fell harmlessly to the ground. "It was one of the games that was really intense back-and-forth,"Gordy said."Both teams played with a lot of energy.They had a few good players who made big shots and we had to answer. We stayed strong and kept pushing in their court." Igwe led the Wildcats with 16 points while kicking in two blocks.Gordy added 10 points and five rebounds. The academy hosts Winter Haven All Saints'Academy on Tuesday,Feb.21 at 7 p.m.Academy's season of firsts Academy at the Lakes shooting guard/forward Abaz Igwe scored a team-high 16 points in his squad's 49-48 playoff win on Feb. 16.

That's when the fifth-year program had four players sign to play in college,a record for a single Seahawks football recruiting class. Nick Morrison will play linebacker at Morehead State University,a Division I program in Kentucky.Cornerback/running back Rashaud Daniels,fullback/defensive end Jerome Samuels and quarterback Jacob Jackson will attend Central Methodist University,an NAIA school in Missouri. "They've been a huge part of building the program,"said Sunlake football coach Bill Browning."They've persevered and all their hard work paid off.They're great leaders for their new programs and great role models."Morrison was the team's leading tackler each of the last three years,posting 366 career tackles and nine fumble recoveries. He did that despite playing most of his junior year with a torn ACL in his right knee."I'm blessed to keep playing,"Morrison said."I had the knee injury,and to be able to keep playing after that is exciting." The other three said getting to play together at Central Methodist,which went 5-5 last year,was a reason why they became Eagles. "Now we can bring a little bit of Sunlake to our new school,"Samuels said. Daniels added,"I wanted Jerome to come there too because he's like a brother of mine.Then getting to play with Jacob again makes it even better." Jackson,who transferred from Gulf as a junior,graduated last year.He originally signed with the College of DuPage but wound up going to Bluefield College.He will use his remaining three years of eligibility at Central Methodist. Jackson threw for 1,258 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2010 while adding 1,058 rushing yards and 12 more scores. Jackson said he was "relieved"when Sunlake made the postseason for the first time in 2011 even though he wasn't with the program. "I called coach Browning right away when they beat Land O'Lakes for the first time and then when they made the playoffs,"Jackson said. Samuels and Daniels have attended the central Pasco County school since their freshman year,a season when the Seahawks went 1-9.Sunlake went 10-2 this season,including making its first postseason. "This has been a great process here because now I'm going to a school that hasn't gotten to its top yet,"Daniels said."I have the From left are Jacob Jackson, Rashaud Daniels, Jerome Samuels and Nick Morrison during their signing on Feb. 15 as Sunlake football coach Bill Browning, back left, and the players' families look on. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)chance to go there and help them get to their top." Samuels had a team-high 536 rushing yards last year on 93 carries while adding 39 tackles and five sacks.He will likely play running back in college. Daniels led the team in minutes played the last three years,posting 35 touchdowns,scoring nine two-point conversions and picking off seven passes during his career.He'll start out at cornerback at Central Methodist. "I'm ready to go out there to Missouri now,"Daniels said."As a Florida boy I'm going in there with some swag and try to get a starting position."Sunlake's record signing day SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS CHECK THIS OUT Youth basketball tryouts March 3The Land O' Lakes Youth Basketball Association will have tryouts for its boys competitive travel team on Saturday,March 3 at the Land O' Lakes High gym.Tryouts for players in sixth grade or younger is from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. For those in ninth grade and younger it is from 12-2:30 p.m.For players in 11th grade and younger it is from 2:30-5 p.m.For more information,call coach Steve Thomopalos at (813) 833-7465.Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono can be reached at (813) 909-2800 or klojacono@cnewspubs.com.

Dale Mabry Hwy Ste 101 Lutz, FL (Corner of Sunlake & Dale Mabry) Get your PUBLIX insert in TheLaker/LutzNews By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comApril Lufriu pulls up to her office slowly.As the tires of her dark SUV crackle over the gravel,she peers out through the windshield and smiles her pearly white smile a stark contrast to her dark brown hair and black sunglasses.Lufriu steps out of her car and holds her smile as she walks inside to her desk at Lufriu Marble Inc.,the company she and her husband,George,started in 1995. She is dressed in jeans,a gray sweatshirt and white sneakers and works in a fluorescent-lit room. Say hello to the newest Mrs.World. Lufriu,42,didnt always aspire to this. If I had to throw on high heels,Id kind of just cringe,she said with a laugh.Id just rather be a simple overall mom,housewife. She started doing pageants at 19 as a way to bring out her personality,primarily through public speaking and interviews. The hardest question is:Tell me about yourself,said the Lutz mother of three a 12-year-old son,Brandon,an 8-year-old daughter,Savannah,and a 26-year-old stepson,Chad. She estimated she has been in a total ofMrs. World spreading her word April Lufriu stood in disbelief, hung her head and thanked God when she heard her name called as the winner of the 2011 Mrs. World contest. (Photo courtesy of April Lufriu)See WORLD,page13 Schools former leader takes on district roleBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comTheres a new leader at the helm of Freedom High,filling a vacancy created by the promotion of the schools former principal.David Sheppard was appointed principal of Freedom High effective Feb.20. Sheppard said he has aspired to become a principal for the past five or six years and is pleased to have the opportunity to assume the leadership post. That said,he also knows that high school principals today face daunting challenges. The biggest one,he said,is to engage a wide variety of students in a manner that makes all of them want to come to school. Freedom has more than 2,000 students, drawing from a range of economic backgrounds.The school,at 17140 Commerce Park Blvd.in Tampa,draws from Lutz and New Tampa,as well as the University Community area and areas to the south. Some students are dedicated and have a plan for their education,including which colleges they would like to attend,Sheppard said.Others are less motivated,the principal said. The key is to have adults with the skills and personalities to engage students and to give them a desire to come to school, Sheppard said.

By John MortonLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentFor nearly two decades,Stacy Hosman refused to get on the back of a motorcycle. Once she relented,it took her only two months to decide it was time to move up to the drivers seat.When my kids were little,I didnt want to get on the back of my husband Jeffs motorcycle,Hosman,of Dade City,said.I told him I would do it when my daughter turned 18.Once I did it,I realized I didnt belong on the back of a bike.I wanted to do my own thing.I own horses on 20 acres in Dade City.I equate it to this:Who would want to be on the back of a horse? Hosman was one of a handful of motorcycle trainees going through riding drills on a recent Sunday at Wharton High Schools parking lot.The program,which has been required since July 0 2008 as part of motorcyclist certification,consists of 15 hours five in the classroom and 10 on the pavement.The program is sponsored by Floridas Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles. Hosman is impressed with what shes learned. There is a big learning curve with this, she said.I cant believe all that goes into it. Louie Kyler,the supervisor on hand Sunday,receives plenty of positive feedback from students like Hosman who take his course. Just a couple of month ago,a guy who had just completed the training came up to me and told me the class saved his life that something had taken place on the road and what he learned had prepared him for it, the 30-year veteran instructor said.Hearing heartwarming stories like that makes this job worthwhile.The statistics show that the number of motorcycle fatalities in the state has decreased since the programs inception,and thats really all that counts. There are thousands of riders,however, who have not benefited from any training. Many got their licenses long before the requirement was set in place. We estimate that 25 to 30 percent of the riders out there have no training,Kyler said.You hope theyll see value in taking the course,even if they dont have to.You talk to a biker of 30 years about a basic training course,and they look at you like youre nuts.But Ill be darned that whenever we get one,theyll tell us couple of hours in,Wow,I didnt know that,after we point something out.It never fails. Meanwhile,Hosmans interest in learning to ride is indicative of an ongoing trend of more female riders showing up for classes. In the early s,when I started doing this,youd see maybe two throughout a day of four classes about two for every 50, Kyler said.Today,its at least two for every class of 12.Women dont want to be on the back of bikes anymore. Hosman can attest to that.Despite having complete trust in her husbands driving, she got antsy fast and even felt out of place. I was amazed how comfy I felt,but I still must admit I found myself doing some backseat driving,she said.I would lean forward and ask,So,do you see that?And hed say, Yes,but if I didnt ask I wouldnt know.It just doesnt feel right,not being in control. Furthermore,Hosman finds both a social and relationship benefit to her decision to get behind the handlebars. I was losing my husband on a lot of weekends because of his motorcycle trips, and now that my kids are grown I dont want that to continue,she said.He even got into horses for me,but now its time for me to get involved in what he likes. So,once this course ends,is a motorcycle of her own a no-brainer for Hosman? Oh,absolutely,she said.Sooner than later.Interested in participating in the states Rider Training Program?

Whos whoBorn and raised in Moore, Oklahoma, Mark Yockey MD, attended the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He completed his residency in August, and he has practiced with Florida Medical Clinic for about six months. His new and fresh knowledge of Urology brings a sophisticated dynamic to the Urology department at Florida Medical Clinic. His special interests include general urology, kidney stone disease, robotic surgery and urologic cancer. Dr. Yockey became intrigued with Urology after gaining knowledge about all the new technology. During his residency, he was able to get immense amounts of hands-on experience with new technology. When he is not spending quality time with his children, he enjoys doing anything outdoors such as hunting, fishing and golfing. MeetDr. Yockey Did You Know...About 1 man in 6 will be diagnosed with prostate cancer during his lifetime. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in American men, behind only lung cancer. About 1 man in 36 will die of prostate cancer. The Prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test is how prostate cancer is screened-prostate biopsy diagnoses. Early prostate cancer usually causes no symptoms and is most often found by diagnostic tests. Some advanced prostate cancers can slow or weaken your urinary stream or make you need to urinate more often. If the prostate cancer is advanced, you might develop blood in your urine (hematuria) or trouble getting an erection (impotence). Age is the strongest risk factor for prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is very rare before the age of 40, but the chance of having prostate cancer rises rapidly after age 50. Almost 2 out of 3 prostate cancers are found in men over the age of 65. Race and ethnicity play a major factor in diagnosing prostate cancer. Several types of cells are found in the prostate, but almost all of prostate cancers develop from the gland cells. Some prostate cancers can grow and spread quickly, but most of them grow slowly. Whos whoOriginally born in Jamaica, Brent Sullivan MD, moved to New Jersey to further his education at New Jerseys University of Medicine and Dentistry, while also achieving his doctorate in medicine and completing his residency. Dr. Sullivan has been a part of Florida Medical Clinics staff for 10 years. Some of his special interests include sexual dysfunction, robotic surgery, prostate cancer, vasectomy, and kidney stones. He played soccer in college and coached local soccer teams. He still enjoys painting watercolors and sketching for recreation. His other hobbies include running, cycling, playing golf, and art appreciation. Dr. Sullivan takes about three weeks out of every year to travel. Dr. Sullivan and Dr. Yockey are located at: 14547 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Tampa, FL 33613 813.979.7733www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com 2012or Stone Age?MeetDr. SullivanBy:Erica Collura Although millions of years apart,there is one small thing the Stone Age and 2012 have in common,stones.Not the stones that are used to build houses,or the stones used to build sidewalks,but the stones the human body creates. Even though kidney stones are very uncomfortable,the stones can be very treatable. With new technologies and appropriate training,Dr.Yockey is able to guide his patients to an easy recovery. According to Dr.Yockey, most kidney stone cases occur in men.Dr.Yockey diagnoses a patient with Nephrolithiasis,or kidney stones,by referring patients to Florida Medical Clinics radiology department to get a cat scan,which is a diagnostic test.Cat scans will almost always detect kidney stones,said Dr.Yockey.There is only one type of kidney stone it does not detect,and that particular stone is extremely rare. There are about five different known types of kidney stones. Once the kidney stone is passed,it gets sent to a geology lab to be analyzed,he said. Fortunately,Dr.Yockey can choose from many different options to attack the stones.In some cases,we can give the patients a prescription to ease the pain,while encouraging patients to drink plenty of water,so the stone can just pass on its own without surgery. In more severe cases that involve surgery,I could use a method called extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy.Dr. Yockey said.This uses sound waves to fragment the stone,so it can be passed. In other cases,we can use laser technology to act like a jackhammer to the stone. Depending on the type,size and location of the stone,it will determine which surgical method to use. Dr.Yockey describes todays technology innovative because thirty years ago doctors would have to make a large incision in a patients abdomen,then remove and filet the kidney to remove the stones.In most of those cases,patients would end up losing their kidneys. As far as preventatives go,I recommend a heart healthy diet,and a consumption of less than two grams of sodium a day.Dr.Yockey said.I also recommend people to stay well hydrated as dehydration is the number one cause of kidney stones."Working together forGOOD HEALTHTheLaker / LutzNews& 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 22,2012 4 thousands of homes in the Tampa Bay area during the past three decades.For more information,visit www.westbaytampa.com.Aspiring entrepreneurs can learn the fundamentals of starting a business at a Friday, Feb.24 workshop by the Pasco Economic Development Council.Carol Hendrix of the University of South Floridas Small Business Development Center will lead the session from 8:30-10 a.m.at the councils office at 16506 Pointe Village Drive Suite 101 in Lutz.

The branch will be built on one of four outparcels at a site that Pasco County has approved for a 196.150-square-foot Walmart Supercenter and 21,372-square-foot garden center. It is unclear when Walmart plans to proceed with construction,said Dawn Sutton,a planner for Pasco County.Walmart officials did not respond to several requests for information by The Laker. An access road to the site will be constructed off Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard, which is a new north-south road that ultimately will run from SR 56 to SR 54. Walmart is required to construct a portion of Wiregrass Ranch Boulevard,Sutton said. A typical Walmart Supercenter has about 300 employees,according to Walmarts website. AutoZone also has submitted a site plan to the county for one of the other outparcels,but company officials from AutoZone could not be reached for comment.Homes by WestBay plans to open a model home this month in LakeShore Ranch,a 519-acre master-planned community off US 41.The nine executive designs in the gated community will have base prices ranging from $279,990 to $349,990.Homes by WestBay was founded by Roger Gatewood and Willy Nunn,who have built

He orders decaf coffee and water and the usual at this establishment fish and chips.In the nearly two hours Jeffris is at the restaurant,he says hello to at least six people,including a table of three women who say they thoroughly enjoyedhis show a waitress and one of the owners. He stops to chat with anyone who wants to talk. Jeffris,53,is a self-proclaimed entertainer who has been playing the snowbird circuit,for about 10-15 years.He doesnt limit his shows to Zephyrhills though.He plays all around the country in county and town fairs.His next show,however,is just around the corner in New Port Richey on Wednesday,Feb.29,where he will perform for General Electric retirees. This is what I do for a living,he said. But Rainbow Village in Zephyrhills is his home away from home which is Indianapolis during the winter season and has been for four years. I dont have any worries at Rainbow, Jeffris said. Jeffris may own a unit at Rainbow Village,but he can call all of Zephyrhills his home.With his professional attire,sandblonde beard and hair,Jeffris is pretty recognizable around town. I chase the snowbird circuit,Jeffris said. He got this way because of two things: his personality and his ability. Jeffris received his first guitar for Christmas when he was 13.By his junior year in high school,he had formed a band Steve Jeffris and The Country Entertainers and recorded his first album. By the time he was out of high school,there was another album and another band The Circle City Express. You go through a lot of band names through the years,like youre changing socks or undershorts,Jeffris said. He also spun records out of high school at his local radio station and that helped him memorize song lyrics, song titles,album artwork and album titles effortlessly. Already immersed in music,Jeffris spent a lot of his early career in Nashville. I guess you might say trying to make it,Jeffris said. You chase that and then it seems as you mature and you get a little bit older you realize that maybe youre chasing the wrong thing. It probably was better that I didnt go the Nashville route,he added.That doesnt mean Nashville didnt almost hook him. In the late 80s,he got a call from an agency in Nashville about the possibility of getting a five-piece band together to open for a budding country star. Jeffris decided against it,preferring the life he had established to the rigors of a superstars touring life. I almost did,and I decided not to because I was already making a good living as a musician and entertainer,he said.I was traveling some,but I had control over it and I didnt want to give that up. Turns out that that up-and-coming star was Garth Brooks,Jeffris said with a chuckle.I really feel I made the right move,he continued.Ive had a ball in the last 35 years. In 1990,Jeffris left the security of his job as a steel pipe and tubing distributor to pursue a career as a fulltime entertainer. Armed with his guitar and a personality driven to feed off entertaining the crowd, Jeffris has compiled 11 CDs. But its the live shows that really get Jeffris excited and fresh after 35 years of performing. The audience always revives you,Jeffris said.My therapy is get me on the phone and find me a show give me an hour on stage and Im well again. In his live shows,he sings and accompanies himself on guitar with no tracks or canned music.The only piece of machinery up on stage is a drum machine to fill out the sound. Jeffris believes the authenticity and directness of his show are reflected in his popularity. He does it the old-fashioned way.He books himself and manages all the administrative work that comes with his profession. He plays an estimated more than 400 shows per year.His shows are generally either two hours with an intermission or a straight-through one-hour show. They like to see people do it,Jeffris said.In fact,part of Jeffrisact is trying to make people in the community and audience the star. As part of his show at Rainbow Village, he always gets the manager of the park a special something.And when he can help it, that something involves bringing the community together. There was the time he brought in the Zephyrhills High marching band to his show.One time,he stopped mid-show to place an order for a pie for his manager and a second later,a Sonic waitress rolled up on skates with the pie in hand. He is constantly trying to top himself when it comes to surprising his manager.He is just as determined to improve his show in general. Despite three-plus decades of playing, Jeffris is constantly tweaking his routine and says hell play as long as he doesnt sound or look bad to the audience.As if preplanning for possible denial,he even made a pact with his wife,Sharon,that she would tell him when it was time to end his career.Im not satisfied with my show yet,he said.He might be the only one in Zephyrhills.Traveling entertainer a staple in Zephyrhills Steve Jeffris has been playing music for more than 35 years. Despite his Midwest music roots and professional connection to Nashville a city steeped in music history Jeffris loves his gig as a traveling entertainer chasing the snowbird circuit in Pasco County and Central Florida.

Warriors teammate Erin Visoky did the tennis-ball throw and 25-meter run. I love everything here,Visoky said.I love the tennis-ball throw,the runs,hanging out with my friends and seeing all the fans in the stands. Visoky has competed at the event for the last four years going back to when she attended Gaither.She enjoyed the opportunity to get back to her first high school. Thats great because I get to come back and see all my old friends and teachers, Visoky said. Alex Lange was representing Wharton High at the event,competing in the shot put. Ive done (Stampede Day) four times and I really look forward to supporting my friends from my school,Lange said.He then added,Ive only done the shot put one time before,and its actually really easy to learn. You have to put a lot of effort into it though. Two of the volunteers at the games were 10 pageants.She was a dental hygienist before she and George started their marble company. When the business started,she didnt know how to read a ruler.Now she helps her husband run the place,from taking measurements to doing templates. Lufrius work schedule has been a bit more demanding ever since shes donned her newest crown. Its a big team effort,she said,noting how her husband and parents help bear the load.If I had to do it alone,theres no way. So how exactly did a working mom who did pageants in her teenage years land back on the path toward tiaras? Two words:Retinitis pigmentosa (RP). RP is one name for a group of inherited vision disorders that causes progressive degeneration of the retina,the light sensitive membrane that coats the inside of the eyes. The majority of RP cases gradually erode peripheral vision to the point of loss and in some forms of RP,central vision may also be affected.Originally,Lufriu became invested in the cause when her sister was diagnosed with RP in 2007.It was in 2010 that Lufriu received more life-altering news:Lufriu and her son,Brandon,and daughter,Savannah,all suffered from the affliction to varying degrees. I felt like I was back at square one.I would be driving and crying,she said,questioning why this was happening to her and her family. Rather than stand back and wait for RP to take its toll on the affected members of the Lufriu family,she returned to the pageant circuit.This time,it wasnt about self-discovery or personal growth,there was a bigger motivating factor. Thats my ultimate goal,is to make (RP) a household name and in my lifetime to findWORLD,from page 1a cure or something to halt the condition for my kids,Lufriu said.Thats the purpose why I was put on this Earth,and I found that out at the age of 40. Her Hollywood-esque story caught the attention of pageant judges. Lufriu remembers the time a judge told her he had written down winnerduring a competition after hearing Lufrius mission. When youre speaking with someone, and you have a message that really strikes someone like Oh wow,I tell you,youre going to stand out bigger than a Raquel Welch,Lufriu said. I think if I didnt have a story behind me,I dont think I would have walked away with Mrs.America nor Mrs.World. David Marmel,cofounder with his wife, Elaine,and CEO of the Mrs.America and Mrs.World contests,was just as taken with Lufrius background. I mean cmon,take a look at who this woman is and her family structure and what she does professionally and personally and philanthropically. Shes juggling home,family,career simultaneously and in a magnificent way.On top of that,shes carrying a burden that is indescribable indefinable rather to describe,Marmel added.My God,I dont think Im articulate enough to define this amazing woman. When her name was called,she stood suspended in disbelief and hung her head and thanked God. It really hits you when you wake up the next morning,Lufriu said.I think I woke up at like five in the morning and go Wow. Thats all I could say,was wow. Soon she was saying RP. With the Mrs.World crown bestowed on her,Lufriu sought to use her increased visibility to raise RP awareness. People can really relate to April because she is so personally close to the mission of Mrs. World stands with her family as they celebrate her achievement. Lufriu was chosen among 58 women. (Photo courtesy of April Lufriu)the Foundation Fighting Blindness and retinal diseases,said Allie Gebhardt,senior manager of media relations for the Foundation Fighting Blindness.People can not only relate to her,but really look to her as an example of having a positive attitude about it and make the best of a situation through raising awareness and putting the focus on research and the future. But the business-savvy Mrs.World is the first to point out awareness doesnt pay the bills. I need the funds in order to make this happen,she said.I can speak and bring awareness as much as I can,but if I dont get the contributions from the public,what am I doing?

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLand OLakes High has been found guilty of six violations by the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) involving two students who are siblings. The Gators must forfeit 44 athletic contests,including 23 football games,16 junior varsity volleyball matches and five boys weightlifting meets.The school was fined $3,200 and the entire athletic department is on probation until June 1,2013.The FHSAAs report states a concerned parenttold Land OLakes about the potential violations on Feb.3.The school conducted an internal investigation and the two students withdrew from Land OLakes on Feb.6.Corey Sobers,FHSAA spokesman,said the final ruling was given to the school on Feb.13.Land OLakes can appeal. The FHSAA report states the family was assisted by a coach and a football booster parent,who helped them to obtain and submit a false address to allow the students to attend Land OLakes High School,though they actually lived outside the district.The same address was used in August 2012 when the younger sibling enrolled at Land OLakes as a freshman. Sobers said the football coach was Matt Kitchie,who was hired in 2009 but was relieved of his duties following an unrelated off-the-field incident at the end of the 2010 season. Portions of Land OLakesself-report released by the FHSAA state Kitchie knew one of the studentsparents because they both coached together at a college in Kentucky. The parent told Kitchie the player wasnt happy at his school in Hillsborough County. (Kitchie) talked about how to orchestrate the documents needed that would allow (name redacted) to enroll at LOLHS, the self-report states. Upon further review by the school,we determined that the address being used was at a local business, owned by football booster-parents. The self-report states the booster,who was not identified,was hesitantto go along with the plan but complied because he did not want to fall out of favor with his sons coach. Kitchie,now the coach at Leto,denies any involvement. I had nothing to do with this,Kitchie said.Its completely false.Summer Romagnoli,spokeswoman for the Pasco School District,said no other Land OLakes faculty was part of the investigation.The booster involved is banned from any contact with Gators athletics. The Laker/Lutz News has learned the football player in question is quarterback Ryan Bird.The senior transferred from Hillsborough High for his junior year. Ryan,who was an International Baccalaureate student at both schools,started two games as a junior and 10 contests, including the kickoff classic,in 2011. FHSAA bylaws state a team must forfeit any contest in which an ineligible player was on the active roster even if they did not play.Ryan was on the Gatorsroster for all 23 games,including two kickoff classics,the last two years and was a part of five Land O Lakesboys weightlifting meets last season. The Gators went 9-2 in 2010,reaching the playoffs for the 14th straight season. Sobers said the program must vacate that postseason appearance,ending the streak at 13.Land OLakes finished 7-3 in 2011 without making regionals. Ryan has one sibling,a younger sister named Madison.Steve Bird,Ryan and Madisons father,is an assistant football coach at the University of South Florida.He coached at Eastern Kentucky University from 2005-06,the same time Kitchie was a graduate assistant at the college.Steve Bird did not return multiple phone and email requests for comment on this story.Land OLakes could have been fined $2,500 for each of the 32 contests that either of the ineligible students played in for a total of $80,000.Sobers said the amount was lessened because the school self-reported the violations. Sobers said the Gators are eligible for the postseason in other sports this year,but another violation by any Land OLakes athletic program during the probation could result in playoff bans. The FHSAA report states the school is making changes to the enrollment requirements.It also states Land OLakes principal Ric Mellin accepted full responsibility for the administration of these sports.Land O Lakes ruled guilty of recruiting violations Former Land OLakes football coach Matt Kitchie was found to have been part of the illegal recruitment of Ryan Bird, who has since withdrawn from the school.

By Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comHarold Givens wasnt happy and he decided to do something about it. His daughter,Jade,was playing AAU basketball in 2003 when Givens decided there was room for improvement. We figured we could do it better,we could do it more effectively,Givens said.So we started Tampa Bay Inferno. And with that spark,Givens and his nononsense basketball regime began. Givens called AAU pressure packed,noting how kids arent there to solely have fun. Theyre there to learn and win in the process. If you dont measure up,you dont play. If you dont compete and win a spot,you dont receive a spot,Givens said. Givens has applied his philosophy to his recreational league as well,the Junior Magic, which practices in sync with the Inferno. We serve a clientele thats being underserved,and thats for people that want the truth and want their kids to be taught, Givens said. Currently,Inferno includes seven girls teams ranging from sixth-grade to high school players.The AAU season goes from late February to October including roughly 15 tournaments and traveling within Florida,to Georgia,all the way to Virginia. Givenssuccess didnt come without trials and tribulations.He said people originally took his kindness for weakness,including sticking their hands into the organizations pocket. I learned on the fly how to run a business,Givens said.I watch where the money goes.I watch my people,I watch the parents.If we have to dismiss a parent and a kid,we have no problems. Givens also has shied away from dealing with parents and politics.He has no qualms cleaning house. They want things their way and they dont want to follow the rules as far as Tampa Bay Inferno,Givens said.Thats really not accepted here. Were going to do this thing right. Part of the reason Givens strives for a nonpolitically charged environment is because his organization serves kids from different backgrounds.Kids come from Wesley Chapel,Lutz,Land OLakes and from as far away as Zephyrhills and Polk County. One thing that translates,no matter where kids come from,is Givensyelling. You have two types of kids:kids that can deal with aggressiveness and some kids that cant,Givens said. While Givens has tried to temper his attitude,theres a lot of yelling.He wants kids to have fun and achieve,so long as they dont mind a bit of screaming along the way. Anika Moffitt,12,is in her first year with the Inferno and said she has no problems with Givenstechniques. Anybody can go out there and tell themselves to quit,but you have to have a strong mind to tell yourself to keep going,Moffitt said.Hell even walk over to the door and tell you to leave. Givens added,Its not for the faint of heart.Thats why I love this country so much this country has choices.You can choose to keep your kids here or you choose not to.It doesnt bother me. And Givensat-times abrasive attitude has attracted kids more than it has scared them off. You gotta let Coach (Givens) coach, said Carol Brower,whose daughter, Stephanie,is in her third year with the Inferno.If hes gonna yell at your kid to get your kid motivated,thats what you gotta let him do. Brower said she noticed immediate improvement in her daughters game and Stephanie wouldnt play anywhere else. Anne Dykeman said Givensintimidating and gruff exterior isnt the whole story. He might tell you what youre doing wrong,but he builds you back up, Dykeman said. Some of Givenscolleagues dont agree with his coaching mentality,but none can argue with the results.The Infernos sixthgrade team was the Youth Basketball of America national runner-up in addition to the AAU state champions. I want to be a national powerhouse, Givens said.The ultimate goal,we may not reach it,is for everyone of our kids to get to college.Every single one.I want them all to obtain college scholarships. For more information on the Inferno,call Givens at (813) 997-9933 or email TBInferno@hotmail.com. Coach Harold Givens works with Morgan Sieper, 9, during a recent practice for the Infernos joint program, the Junior Magic league. The Magic is the Infernos recreational league.

The Gators (23-4-2) lost in the Class 3A championship 3-1 to Plantation American Heritage at the University of South Florida on Feb.18,forcing them to wait another year for the programs first state title. Land OLakes had momentum entering halftime with the score 1-1,but a pair of quick strikes by the Patriots (26-0-3) out of the locker room sealed the win.American Heritage scored 39 seconds into the second half and found the back of the net in the 46th minute. We came out a little flat coming out of halftime,said 15-year Gators coach Mark Pearson.They made some good combination plays in the middle of the field and unfortunately we didnt defend very well, and not just individually but as a unit. Land OLakes had its share of opportunities in the second half,including five free kicks inside or near the 18-yard box and a cross from Nathan Dalton headed just wide left by Sean Young. We threw as much as we could going forward,and were able to hold them to three and not give anything else up in the counterattack,Pearson said.We just didnt finish our opportunities. What we did do well their goalkeeper covered up well. The Gatorsgoal came in the 10th minute less than 2 minutes after American Heritage opened up the scoring.Land O LakesJosh Davis sent a long cross from right to left,which Miguel Laliberte sent back toward the middle for Adam Weinstock to head home. The Gators were unable to find the back of the net again despite outshooting the Patriots 20-10. It hasnt really sunk in yet that we made it all the way here and lost,said Dalton,a senior midfielder/forward.A lot of the kids were just lying on the ground,but we just told everybody to keep their heads up because we made it this far. Land OLakesfinals run comes after losing 10 seniors from a year ago.The current Gators were unable to win the programs eighth straight district championship,but claimed their first regional title since 2000. Its been a great season for us,Pearson said.He then added,Well have a good group coming back.Were going to miss the guys who are leaving. Land OLakes loses another 10 seniors this year. Most of the seniors here have been around for four years,and theyve done a tremendous job for us,Pearson said. Theyve represented the program well,and not just on the field but in the classroom too.We have a lot of AP and IB kids that really put themselves through academically a lot of rigor.Theyre great young men. Among the graduating are the Gators top-five points recorders:Dalton,Davis, Laliberte,Andy Garcia and Jake Frahm.I cant even explain in words how bad this hurts,said Frahm,a midfielder.Senior year,all you want to do is hold that ring up and have everyone be jealous looking at you. We havent been past the quarterfinals of regionals since our freshman year when we won there.We wanted to build off each other and we did that this year.We played with each other getting to this game.I think we fell apart a little in this game,but we still played with heart;still gave it our all and came up short.Frahm said the teams heart is what he will always remember about this years team. That first game against Berkley (Prep) we lost 4-1,and that was the start of our season,Frahm said.We had to start building off each other and came close as a family at school and also on the pitch.That heart brought us together to this game. Dalton added,We never gave up.Even in the last couple seconds when there was 30 seconds left everyone was still trying.Gators just short of program history Land OLakes coach Mark Pearson, center, consoles seniors Andy Garcia, seated left, and Nicholas Kempton after losing the state finals.

The 20-year veteran has won more than 400 games and his teams have won nine district championships,but his Wildcats (23-5) helped him do something completely new on Feb.18. The academy defeated Winter Garden Foundation Academy (9-12) 64-28 in the Class 2A regional finals,sending Nohra and the Wildcats to their first final four. This feels much better than the journeys Ive had before,Nohra said.Id rather do this than what I did the past eight times Ive been here at this position. It feels pretty darn good to go dancing. During his last 10 years coaching Nohra has guided teams to nine regional finals,including the last four straight starting at Wesley Chapel High from 2008-10 and the last two seasons at the academy. Junior forward Andrea Mauger has been coached by Nohra the last three years and was happy to give him the special gift. Its amazing because hes done so much to make me a better player,so to be able to give him something back feels great,said Mauger,who had 13 points.My dream came true;the teams dream came true. The regional championship is also the schools first in any sport. I dont even know what to say,said senior guard Amelia Oliver.Im just so excited. Im glad to be playing with this team. The Wildcats had an off shooting night, going 4-30 from 3-point land.They led 19-16 after the first quarter,but their defense began to suffocate Foundation after that. The academy allowed only 12 points in the final 24 minutes and six after halftime. Senior point guard Samantha Fernandezs quickness led the Wildcatspress defense, producing 14 steals while adding 10 rebounds. I expected to come out and jump on them quick,Fernandez said.That was our intention,and we did a great job of that.All of us played well defensively. Fernandez also racked up 15 points and 11 assists a quadruple double. Her performance is what we needed out of her tonight,Mauger said.Shes fast and quick.When she plays smart shes unstoppable. Oliver had a team-high 22 points despite fighting the flu.The Wildcats also got 14 points,11 rebounds and six steals from Vanessa Vincent.Alexis Holler posted six steals and four rebounds. The academy blew past its regional semifinals contest on Feb.14 at Avon Park Walker Memorial (20-1),winning 85-37. Mauger had a game-high 27 points. Oliver added 20 points,while Fernandez and Vincent added 14 and 12,respectively.

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Academy at the Lakes boys basketball team continued sailing into uncharted waters with a 49-48 victory at Lake Wales Vanguard on Feb.16 in the Class 2A regional quarterfinals. The win is the Wildcatsfirst in the playoffs,just one of a line of new things done by the program this year.The trip to the postseason is also a program first as is finishing a season above .500.This whole year has been so great,said junior guard/forward Igwe,a Freedom High transfer.I love it here. The academy (15-8) had an interesting fight getting to Vanguard (16-3).Their pregame meal was delayed and then they got lost on the way to the game.We had to change into our gear in the bus,Igwe said.A couple of the guys fell asleep,so we had to wake them up,and they were all confused.We got there like 15 minutes before the game. We werent into the game like we should have been until the half.The academy went 3-17 shooting in the first quarter but trailed only 22-20 entering halftime.Much of the poor shooting was thanks to Vanguards 6-foot-7 center Jean Remy Esor.Wildcats sophomore center Evan Gordy has faced players as tall as 6-foot-10,so he has experience looking for ways to break down such giants. I realized he wasnt as fast reacting back to the ball,Gordy said.Hed shift to one side and Id stay on the other to cut to the basket.Then I tried to use my strength to box him out to get put backs.I also saw he would jump on pump fakes because hed always go for the block. The game stayed close to the end and included a last-second shot.Vanguard stole the ball with about 3 seconds remaining and got up a floater that hit the backboard and fell harmlessly to the ground. It was one of the games that was really intense back-and-forth,Gordy said.Both teams played with a lot of energy.They had a few good players who made big shots and we had to answer. We stayed strong and kept pushing in their court. Igwe led the Wildcats with 16 points while kicking in two blocks.Gordy added 10 points and five rebounds. The academy hosts Winter Haven All SaintsAcademy on Tuesday,Feb.21 at 7 p.m.Academys season of firsts Academy at the Lakes shooting guard/forward Abaz Igwe scored a team-high 16 points in his squads 49-48 playoff win on Feb. 16.

Thats when the fifth-year program had four players sign to play in college,a record for a single Seahawks football recruiting class. Nick Morrison will play linebacker at Morehead State University,a Division I program in Kentucky.Cornerback/running back Rashaud Daniels,fullback/defensive end Jerome Samuels and quarterback Jacob Jackson will attend Central Methodist University,an NAIA school in Missouri. Theyve been a huge part of building the program,said Sunlake football coach Bill Browning.Theyve persevered and all their hard work paid off.Theyre great leaders for their new programs and great role models.Morrison was the teams leading tackler each of the last three years,posting 366 career tackles and nine fumble recoveries. He did that despite playing most of his junior year with a torn ACL in his right knee.Im blessed to keep playing,Morrison said.I had the knee injury,and to be able to keep playing after that is exciting. The other three said getting to play together at Central Methodist,which went 5-5 last year,was a reason why they became Eagles. Now we can bring a little bit of Sunlake to our new school,Samuels said. Daniels added,I wanted Jerome to come there too because hes like a brother of mine.Then getting to play with Jacob again makes it even better. Jackson,who transferred from Gulf as a junior,graduated last year.He originally signed with the College of DuPage but wound up going to Bluefield College.He will use his remaining three years of eligibility at Central Methodist. Jackson threw for 1,258 yards and 18 touchdowns in 2010 while adding 1,058 rushing yards and 12 more scores. Jackson said he was relievedwhen Sunlake made the postseason for the first time in 2011 even though he wasnt with the program. I called coach Browning right away when they beat Land OLakes for the first time and then when they made the playoffs,Jackson said. Samuels and Daniels have attended the central Pasco County school since their freshman year,a season when the Seahawks went 1-9.Sunlake went 10-2 this season,including making its first postseason. This has been a great process here because now Im going to a school that hasnt gotten to its top yet,Daniels said.I have the From left are Jacob Jackson, Rashaud Daniels, Jerome Samuels and Nick Morrison during their signing on Feb. 15 as Sunlake football coach Bill Browning, back left, and the players families look on. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)chance to go there and help them get to their top. Samuels had a team-high 536 rushing yards last year on 93 carries while adding 39 tackles and five sacks.He will likely play running back in college. Daniels led the team in minutes played the last three years,posting 35 touchdowns,scoring nine two-point conversions and picking off seven passes during his career.Hell start out at cornerback at Central Methodist. Im ready to go out there to Missouri now,Daniels said.As a Florida boy Im going in there with some swag and try to get a starting position.Sunlakes record signing day SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTSCHECK THIS OUTYouth basketball tryouts March 3The Land O Lakes Youth Basketball Association will have tryouts for its boys competitive travel team on Saturday,March 3 at the Land O Lakes High gym.Tryouts for players in sixth grade or younger is from 9:30 a.m.-12 p.m. For those in ninth grade and younger it is from 12-2:30 p.m.For players in 11th grade and younger it is from 2:30-5 p.m.For more information,call coach Steve Thomopalos at (813) 833-7465.Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono can be reached at (813) 909-2800 or klojacono@cnewspubs.com.
