Unless they happen to be in Land O' Lakes for one of Harry Wilkins'free outdoor movies. The Land O'Lakes-based Acme Outdoor Movie Company provides an alternative to the traditional movie experience by hosting outdoor movies on larger-than-life screens. Instead of fighting over armrests,audience members sit on blankets in the grass and lounge in beach chairs.Overpriced popcorn and drinks aren't an issue;moviegoers are encouraged to bring their own snacks. "It was a blast,"said Gary DePury,who took his family of five to several movies during warmer months."We really enjoyed it." DePury's clan took in "Monsters,Inc.," "Goonies,"and the second in the "Indiana Jones"series. DePury discovered the movies when he was driving by the Land O'Lakes Community Center and saw a movie showing on a screen he estimates was four stories high.He couldn't stop that night but told his wife about it and vowed to take in the next show with his family. His children 9,11 and 13 years old loved it,and so did his mother-in-law,said the Land O'Lakes real estate broker. "It was better than going to a regular theater,"DePury said."For one thing,it's free." DePury also liked the relaxed atmosphere,where "you don't have to sneak past The small screen can be used for a variety of neighborhood events. (Photo courtesy of Acme Outdoor Movie Co.)By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe boys are all trooping into the campground and their dads come along and tell them they need to put up their tents. So,the boys go off to pitch their tents. That's just one of dozens of scenes filmed in Tampa Bay recently for a new television and DVD series called "Samuel L.Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths." The Lutz family behind the project describes the series as a combination of a "Young Raiders of the Lost Ark,"the hightech gadgetry of "Mission Impossible"and the scriptural conviction of "Veggie Tales." In each half-hour episode,13-year-old Samuel L.Collins pursues top-secret clues to solve encrypted cipher codes that reveal Biblical truths. As young viewers watch the program, Samuel invites them to help him solve the clues. The show takes on such themes such as self-control,leadership,obedience and integrity as Samuel learns how to use scriptural passages to discern Biblical truths. "He is presented with a dilemma.He confronts the dilemma with scripture.Then he comes to a realization,"said Kristi Collins, who is Samuel's mom and the writer for the series. The show will begin airing on the NRB Network beginning March 10, Segments of the show have been filmed in Bali,Singapore,Berlin,Kentucky and most recently Tampa Bay. John Collins,the producer of the series, said the goal is to show viewers places they may never get a chance to visit.The Lutz man said he couldn't ignore Tampa Bay, since he grew up in the area. "We're completing the project for television.But we're also completing the project to be sold as individual DVDs,which is whyLutz teen stars in new Bible-based show Boys pitch tents during filming of a new Christian-based television program.

She lost her aunt to breast cancer in 1982,the first of many encounters she has had with the disease.Johnson's mother died of liver cancer in 1991,followed by her father succumbing to lung and brain cancer in 2003. Johnson has also faced the difficult challenge of battling cancer herself.She was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 1991 and breast cancer in 2001.Fortunately for her it was detected early enough both times and the tumors were completely removed.Today she is cancer free and will be sharing her story and message at the fourth annual Concert For a Cure at the Land O'Lakes Community Center on Saturday,Feb.25."If I can survive so can others,"Johnson said."I'm spreading the word.I'm a survivor. I'm behind the banner.When you have survived and are still living from cancer,not one time but twice in my case,that's something to celebrate." Johnson doesn't look at her history with cancer as a negative,but rather something that has made her a better person. "People ask me how do you go on," Johnson said."You literally lost your family.I tell them I believe everything happens for a reason,and I wouldn't change a thing about my life.Cancer made me stronger made me realize who my real true friends are.Who was really there for me in my life.I'm a fighter,always have been.If you just give up that's not a challenge.I say bring it on.I've been through so much,and I'm still here.It's not my time to leave this earth."Any pain that she relives is negated by the good that comes from spreading awareness."If I can tell my story and educate a person about how important it is to check a lump out,or get your yearly physical,if one person listens to me I have saved a life," Johnson said."I don't spread the word about treatments.I spread the word that if you have lost your job and you don't have the funds or insurance there are still so many resources that will help you. "For example,October is breast cancer awareness,and almost every doctor does cash visits and lowers mammograms price," Johnson continued."Also the board of health right here in Land O'Lakes offers yearly exams and mammograms." Lilly Fontanez organizes the event as a fundraiser for her Relay For Life team called the Sun Rays.She said having people like Johnson at the concert helps the message of awareness and perseverance hit home for those in attendance. "She's a survivor,"Fontanez said. "Having someone like her tell her story gives people hope they can get through their own fight with cancer.It also shows what early detection can do so other people get checked out like she was."Johnson will be one of several cancer survivors who will share their story at the event.The concert itself will include several local bands playing in front of the center. The day will also include a taste of the town with several local restaurants.Admission, which is $10 for adults and $5 for kids,includes five tickets to sample the food.People can purchase additional tickets for $1 each.The event will also include pony rides and a bounce house for younger guests. All the money raised goes toward the Sun Rays,which will donate the funds to the American Cancer Society at the Relay For Life event at Land O'Lakes High on March 30.The goal is to bring in $2,500.

(Photos courtesy of North Tampa Art League) Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The community will get a chance to talk about the possibility of a four-day week for Pasco County schools at a series of public forums. 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. “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 open-minded, 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 forums, all at 6:30 p.m., are: Thursday, Feb. 9 – Pasco Middle auditorium in Dade City. Wednesday, Feb. 15 – Charles S. Rushe Middle cafeteria. Thursday, Feb. 16 – River Ridge Performing Arts Center. For more information about the forums call (813) 794-2717.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS February 8, 2012 8 By B.J. Jarvis Pasco Cooperative Extension Pesticide use over the last 50 years has allowed the United States to excel as a major food-producer, have cleaner, healthier homes, and share in the dream of creating beautiful landscapes. Routine use of pesticides, however, can have negative effects. Insects can develop resistance, requiring different or more lethal doses to achieve desired results. Many past products are no longer effective due, at least in part, from overuse. Only about 1 percent of insects cause damage to American landscapes. Many insects are desirable, like bees that pollinate our fruits and vegetables or butterflies for their beauty. Some are considered “good bugs,” helping to keep destructive insect populations in check. Broad-spectrum pesticides destroy both the good and the bad. Destructive bugs rebound with few predatory bugs to provide natural controls, starting a vicious cycle of spraying. The best long-term success can be achieved by minimizing, not eliminating, those damaging pests by a combination of monitoring and actions known as integrated pest management. To garden in a more Florida-friendly way, start by choosing plants that are naturally resistant to many pests and plant them in their preferred site conditions. Not doing this stresses plants, which are more prone to both diseases and insect infestations. Also avoid over-fertilization and over-watering. Too much of these are stressors, too. If pests do attack a particular plant, first consider at what point it is necessary to do something about it. Some minor damage should be acceptable. This allows good insects to do their part and lessens the possibility of pesticide resistance. If damage reaches unacceptable levels, then try low-toxicity methods such as a strong spray of water to dislodge the pest or smashing them (if you can tolerate that approach!) If these measures don’t work, look for products that are low-toxicity or pest-specific. Products containing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) control caterpillars. Other less-toxic products such as horticultural oils, insecticidal soaps, and plant-derived products (botanicals) are also great options. Pesticides can play an important role in managing insects but should not be the first approach. Instead, save the pesticides for last to make sure their effectiveness is maintained in the future. NATURE NOTES For more information about Integrated Pest Management gardening techniques, check out the University of Florida’s IPM website at: http://ipm.ifas.ufl.edu/. Gardening questions can also be posed to horticulturists at Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474 or Pasco@pascocountyfl.net. Too Much of a Good Thing –PESTICIDES Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Southwest Florida Water Management District’s Conner Preserve will be temporarily closed to the public for hog hunts Feb. 7–9. Only permitted hunters will be allowed on the property during these dates. All of the permits for these hunts have been sold. Conner Preserve is located at 22500 SR 52 north of Land O’ Lakes in Pasco County. The hunt is one of a series of hog hunts being held on district lands in an effort to control the damage being caused to the natural habitats. The district only allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels, and damage is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Wild hogs live throughout Florida in various habitats, but prefer moist forests and swamps, as well as pine flatwoods. They are omnivorous and feed by rooting with their broad snouts, which can cause extensive damage to the natural habitats. In fact, they can leave an area looking like a plowed field. Wild hogs are not native to Florida and are believed to have been introduced by explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. They can weigh more than 150 pounds and travel in herds of several females and their offspring. For more information, please call the Land Management Section at the district’s Brooksville headquarters at (800) 423-1476 or (352) 796-7211, ext. 4467.Conner Preserve closed for hog hunts Feb. 7–9 Laker/Lutz News Staff Report An army of volunteers turned out last tax season to prepare more than 1,000 tax returns in the Zephyrhills and Dade City area.

He's hoping his book,"Maximus the Musical Elephant,"will make children smile and make them eager to read more books. And he hopes in the not-too-distant future he can publish another book that will entertain them as they learn. He still recalls the delight he felt when he read "Green Eggs and Ham"and other Dr.Seuss books.He's been interested in poetry ever since. In his book,"Maximus the Musical Elephant,"Maximus gets a peanut stuck in his trunk,and it is not until the peanut is freed that he learns that his trunk is actually a wonderful musical instrument. Upon the discovery,the elephant cannot contain his joy and soon begins entertaining everyone at the zoo.His act becomes wildly popular,driving up ticket sales,which in turn,creates the need to expand the zoo. The book,illustrated by Rebecca Riffey, is a self-published work produced by Tate Publishing & Enterprises. Langston,who lives in Wesley Chapel, said he decided to go that route because he had a deep desire to share his work, and he believes it will find an audience. "You have to invest in yourself and you have to believe in yourself.The same energy that you put into other things,you have to put into making your dreams come true,''he said. The 37-year-old said he visited India, where he saw the power of elephants,and while there learned that they represent good luck. He decided to write a story about elephants,and he came up with the idea to transform the elephant's trunk into a musical instrument.As he wrote the story,he was inspired by the great jazz musician, Louis Armstrong. It took him about four months to write the story,constantly tweaking it and reading versions of it aloud to others.He said he finally had to stop himself from making additional changes because he knows no matter what he writes,there will always be room for improvement.Authors have to step away at some point,if they ever want to finish a work,he said. He said the story he wanted to tell is that "you never know what you'll discover, until you try." In this case,"Maximus didn't know he could play music." "Every one of us has something that we're supposed to do.We have a Godgiven talent.We search for what that talent is,and if you're lucky enough to find it in this lifetime,you have to build upon it and work at it." He said he finds inspiration everywhere. "When we actually slow down,we can hear the birds singing.We can see the silver lining of the clouds.We can see the leaves actually fall to the ground.You can see the flowers bloom.You can see life,if you slow down,take a look. "Life is full of so many mysteries and things that we don't see because we are so busy looking at what we can see and what we have to overcome." Langston is married,and he and his wife,Vanessa,have four children:Miya, Keana,Alex and Shay. Although he has only published one book,Langston has written scores of others.He thinks it is his calling is to write and share stories,and he believes they may one day be the source for movies or songs or other adaptations. For now,he's simply savoring the start of a new chapter in his life. He's accomplished one of his dreams: He is a published author. James Langston Jr. with his book, "Maximus the Musical Elephant."

Earl, 67, claimed his record-setting 16th national title at the Winter National Doubles Championships in Bradenton Jan. 23-25. The Zephyrhills resident has been striving for the mark since he picked up his first trophy in 2000 on the same courts. “I’m just absolutely thrilled to have won 16 national championships,” said Earl, who has won the event four times. “I started out with no idea what shuffleboard was about. I retired to play golf. Shuffleboard is so highly competitive and there are great players playing right now.” Earl first picked up shuffleboard more than 20 years ago after his father-in-law, Paul Bush, introduced him to the game. “He had to drag me there,” Earl said. “I wound up winning and I got hooked.” Shuffleboard scratched Earl’s competitive itch in a way golfing never could.“Golf is noncompetive because you play against the course, not your opponent,” Earl said. “If you make a good shot in golf I can’t do anything about it. In shuffleboard I can knock you off the court. It takes me back to my childhood of playing baseball and football.”Earl’s wife, Vivian, saw his competitive nature when they began dating more than 30 years ago. “It was that way with his work,” Vivian said. “Then when he retired we was supposed to be golfing, but that wasn’t competitive enough for him. Golf went on the backburner. He’s always been a go-getter. He never does anything halfway.” Earl’s drive has earned him dozens of career wins, along with induction into the district, state, national and international halls of fame, but his major goal during the last few years has been getting the national championship record. “It takes a lot of pressure off getting No. 16,” Earl said. “Last year I did not win a national championship, and that’s the first time that’s happened since I won my first one. That might well have been because I tried so hard.” Sarasota resident Jim Miller paired with Earl for the record-breaker because his normal partner, Stan Williamson, couldn’t attend. Miller and Earl had never played on a team before but had played against each other several times.“Whenever I play him he gives me a difficult time,” Earl said. “We’ve split about half the times we’ve played. … I knew he was a good player, and I knew I could count on him to keep the other players off the board.”The finals was a close three-game contest against Henry Strong, a winter resident of Zephyrhills, and Paul Prescott. The second game of the match was the only one Earl and Miller lost at the event. The victory moves Earl back to No. 1 in the world rankings. He had been top ranked for the first year they had the standings, but he dropped last July. “Sometimes when you have a year like I had last year you feel like maybe I don’t have it anymore,” Earl said. “I thought maybe I can’t do it. Probably everyone has that happen at some point.” Earl pushed through that dry spell and past Lary Faris, the previous record holder.“I sent him a note and said that’s No. 16 and he sent me back a note of congratulations,” Earl said. “I would not be surprised if he came up from Sun City to see me and congratulate me in person, which is like him to do.”Earl said he still has a few goals left, but plans on taking more time off now that he has the national titles record. “My goal is to back off the travel I have to do to play national championships, but having said that it isn’t like me at all,” Earl said. “To say that is one thing and to do that is another. Now I don’t have to do it. I probably will, but I don’t have to. There’s a big difference between what you have to do and what you want to do.” Earl Ball, right, displays his 16th national shuffleboard championship.

The program is searching for the most outstanding senior volunteer in each state and will culminate with the selection of a national Salute to Senior Service winner during Older Americans Month in May. “Helping others defines life for many local retired seniors,” said Lynelle Bonneville co-owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving East Pasco County. “And what a difference we have observed in seniors’ health, attitude and outlook among those who choose to stay active as they age.”Nominees must be 65 years of age or older and volunteer at least 15 hours a month. Nominations will be accepted at www.SalutetoSeniorService.com through March 15, 2012. Nomination forms also can be requested at ckoehler@homeinsteadinc.com.Fifty state winners and one national winner will be introduced during Older Americans Month in May when $5,000 will be donated to the national winner’s charity of choice.According to research conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care network, 52 percent of seniors volunteer their time through unpaid community service. Nearly 20 percent of seniors surveyed started volunteering when they reached the traditional age of retirement – 65 or older. Furthermore, 20 percent of seniors who volunteer say that their community service is the most important thing they do. Dr. Erwin Tan, director of the Senior Corps, a national organization that links more than 400,000 Americans 55 and older to service opportunities, agrees. “In addition, it’s a great way for them to learn new things – whether a skill or just something about an issue in which they have an interest,” Tan said. “Volunteering is just a great way to expand their horizons.” For more information about the Salute to Senior Service program or Home Instead Senior Care, call (813) 991-7524.Search is on for outstanding senior volunteers

"Season one will have seven episodes," she said. The boys acting in the Tampa Bay episode are from local families,living in Lutz,Land O'Lakes,New Port Richey,Tarpon Springs and other nearby communities, Kristi Collins said. The episode filmed in Tampa Bay focuses on the theme of obedience,she said. The boys filmed all over Tampa Bay for two weeks,spending time at a Lutz campground,at the University of Tampa,at Lettuce Lake Park,at Clearwater Marine Aquarium and canoeing on the Hillsborough River.Rosh Jones is the cinematographer. The series is not like traditional television. The episodes are not in any particular order,Kristi Collins said."They are made for moms to grab off of the shelves independently."It's Christian programming.We're trying to teach children how to take multiple scriptures and reason.We get into a situation in our churches,where we hear a lot of the letter of the law,but then the kids go searching on Can I have another cookie?' There's no scripture in the Bible that tells them if they can have another cookie or not.So,we have to teach them the spirit of the law,"Kristi Collins said. "There was no way Jesus could teach about all of the small nuances and goodness knows,they didn't have the Internet or all of the technology or the modern conveniences that we have.We're trying to say, Take these pieces of Scripture,what is your conclusion?'''she added. The Collins family held focus groups to get reactions to some of their early work, and the reactions were generally favorable, although they have done some tweaking in response to suggestions. "We had six focus groups.We put it in front of about 250 people.It was a good use of our time to hear from them,"Kristi Collins said. "They were especially excited that Sam was going to be a role model and that he was choosing to show integrity and Christian character to little boys and girls. There's not a lot out for moms to grab off the library shelf,at the Christian bookstore, as entertainment." The family is providing the television programming for free,she said.It will be broadcast in Russia,Indonesia and Australia, she said. "We're willing to give it away free.Go dub it in whatever you need to go do ministry around the globe,if this is a tool that can be of assistance to you,"she said. DVD sales and sales of workbooks to accompany the series will produce revenues, which the family hopes to invest into more episodes. "DVD sales hopefully will pay us enough to keep on funding it,"Kristi Collins said. So far,the family has invested about $100,000 in the project,John Collins said. "We have a business that has been profitable.We do corporate events.That's taken care of our investment here,"he said. He thinks there's a void in the market for this type of programming. "We wanted to show an example to young boys of a young boy who struggles with everyday issues that they struggle with. "You have shows like Veggie Tales for when kids are younger.Once you're past Veggie Tales,there isn't anything until they become adults." Sam Collins said he's pleased to be involved in the project. "It's exciting,"the 13-yearold said.

In addition to movies,Acme Outdoor Movies has projected sporting events,the New Year's Eve ball drop,and music videos. Acme is able to set up movie screens in virtually any environment.The company often provides services for churches,clubs and bars,bands,and private homeowners hosting parties. While Acme regularly schedules corporate events,the company also puts on free movies periodically as a community service. "When the economy took a turn for the worse,we decided to find a way for our company to give back to the community in a way that would help families and bring some joy into people's lives,"said Wilkins, Acme's chief operating officer. Wilkins believes that outdoor movies have their own unique edge.Each event averages 300 to 400 attendees. "It is a casual atmosphere that encourages the people attending to mix and mingle,"he explained."The kids can run around,play ball,toss a Frisbee,meet new friends and otherwise enjoy themselves prior to the movie starting." Adults are allowed to get in on the fun as well. "Adults have an opportunity to relax and meet their neighbors,knowing that their kids are within sight and are having fun," Wilkins said. Acme recently showed The Polar Express at an event for the Bay Area's Commonwealth Insurance."Approximately 300 people attended the event and agreed that a great time was had by all,"Wilkins said."The next day,the owner of Commonwealth Insurance called to say how pleased he was with the entire event." In Florida's notoriously fickle weather,an outdoor movie may seem hit or miss. However,Acme has experienced little trouble from inclement weather. "We have no control over the weather,so if an event is rained out we simply reschedule for another date,"Wilkins said."During all of 2011,we only needed to reschedule about three events."The next planned free movie will be "The Glass Window"on Feb.11 at the Land O' Lakes Community Center,5401 Land O'Lakes Blvd.Tim Paskert,one of the producers,will attend the event and speak to the audience.

Voted Florida’s No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Jeff Odom Laker/Lutz News Correspondent Steinbrenner senior Cici Gonzalez wanted to make the moment last forever. After school athletic director Eddie Henderson told her to sign her letter of intent, Gonzalez opened the door into her future at University of Tampa where she will continue her soccer career.“This is amazing, it feels like all my hard work paid off and everything I’ve ever wanted has finally come true,” said Gonzalez, who tallied 91 goals during her high school career.She joined teammate Taylor Valley, who signed with Armstrong Atlantic State University, along with football players Zack Jones and Zack Boryla, who signed with Stetson University on Feb. 1 — National Signing Day. Jones was a member of the Warriors’ inaugural football team in 2009, and will get the opportunity to build something new again with Stetson, which restarts its football program after a 56-year hiatus. “It just feels good to think about the work I put in and it’s all paying off,” Jones said. He then added, “I like (starting a new program), because every catch you get is a new record, every yard you make is a new record, so it’s cool knowing you build a program from the feet up.” Boryla, who missed more than half the season with injuries, said just getting a look from a major university was a blessing.“I just wanted to prove that the injury didn’t affect me and that I’m still who I am and I can still play at the next level,” Boryla said.Valley, who scored 13 goals during Steinbrenner’s bid to repeat as state champions this year, felt she made the right choice and wants to keep Armstrong atop the Division II soccer poll. “It seems like it’s been so long, finding the college and going on visits. … Now it’s kind of like relief, I’m so happy and I know I made the right decision,” said Valley. First-year Steinbrenner girls soccer coach Robert Woodard said it’ll be tough replacing both Gonzalez and Valley. “I’m really happy for them because they’re both great players, and they really made the transition for me a lot easier this year,” Woodard said. He then added, “On the other hand, I have to replace them. That’s going to be a challenge to have somebody step up and fill those shoes. That’s going to be a big task.” Gonzalez ranks the signing right up there with the Warriors’ state title last year. “They’re definitely equal in accomplishments,” Gonzalez said. “One was kind of a team thing and now it’s a personal reward, so it’s equally amazing to me.” Steinbrenner athletic director Eddie Henderson sits in front of, from left, Cici Gonzalez, Taylor Valley, Zack Jones and Zack Boryla during National Signing Day. (Photo by Jeff Odom)Gonzalez highlights Warriors signees Coaches and parents are encouraged to let The Laker/Lutz News know about student-athletes when they are signing to play in college. The sooner we know about the ceremony, the more likely we will be able to cover it. Email Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono at klojacono@cnewspubs.com with all details. By Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com Carrollwood Day School (CDS) had a pair of athletes participate in National Signing Day on Feb. 1. Girls soccer player Taylor Tippett and football player Deuce Gruden signed with the University of South Florida (USF) and Lafayette College, respectively, becoming the second and third Patriots to ever sign letters of intent. Tippett, who started playing around age 5, committed to USF almost a year ago and said it felt good to finally sign.“It was a feeling of relief because of all the work it took to get here,” said Tippett, who will major in biology. “Now I can accomplish my next goals at USF.”She described the day as “unreal” with the entire school watching her sign with the Division I program. “I’ve seen people signing on TV before, and I never really thought much about it until I was up there signing,” Tippett said. Tippett had a team-high 18 goals while adding six assists to help CDS finish with a program record 12 wins as a senior. She will likely play midfield for the Bulls, who play in the Big East Conference. Gruden, who started playing at age 10, said it’s been a dream of his to play college football. “Now I get four more years to play,” Gruden said. “It’s a great honor to go to a school like Lafayette. It’s a great day.” Gruden played a little bit of everything for the Patriots and said Lafayette will play him at various positions to see which he takes to best. “Slot receiver, running back, throwing the ball, defense, special teams; just wherever they need me,” Gruden said. Gruden played quarterback his last two years, completing 57 percent of his passes for 3,050 yards and 32 touchdowns to nine interceptions while adding another 794 rushing yards. He also had 130 tackles and five sacks the last two seasons as a safety. Gruden plans on studying exercise science with the goal of becoming a strength and conditioning coach. Lafayette is a Division I program in the Patriot League. By Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com Three Freedom High athletes inked letters of intent to play in college on Feb. 1 — National Signing Day. Emily Ball will play soccer at the University of South Carolina (USC), football player Larry Thorpe picked Butler Community College and girls cross country runner Ashley Smith will pound the pavement at Augusta State University. Thorpe, a safety, is a newcomer to football, picking up the sport by accident as a junior. Former Patriots football coach Tchecoy Blount said he asked Freedom boys soccer coach Dennis Derflinger if he had anyone who could be a kicker. “I saw this big 6-foot-3 guy come into my room and said are you looking for a kicker,” Blount said. “I said I am, but I think we can find another spot for you.” Thorpe led the Patriots with 81 tackles last season. “I’m very happy to get this opportunity,” said Thorpe, who plans on becoming a firefighter. “I’ll just do my best to make everyone proud. … My dad (Garfield) always told me that education is important, and the last few years I’ve realized that.” Thorpe also thanked Blount for being “like a second dad.” Butler, a member of the Jayhawk Conference, finished last season as the National Junior College Athletic Association’s No. 2 ranked squad. Ball is far from a newcomer to soccer. She’s played the game since age 4. Ball, a goalkeeper, committed to USC almost a year ago, more than enough waiting to make her plans official. “It’s kind of surreal because I’ve been waiting a long time to sign,” said Ball, who plans on studying biomedical engineering. “I’m very fortunate to have this opportunity and I couldn’t have done it without the support of all my coaches and my family.” Ball recorded 186 saves and 10 shutouts last season. Her work between the pipes helped the Patriots win two district championships and make the postseason the last three years. Ball is accustomed to having eyes on her on the field but was nervous while signing. “I was shaking a little bit up there,” Ball said with a smile. “I just wanted to make sure I spelled my name right.” USC is a Division I program in the Southeastern Conference. Smith started running while at Liberty Middle. Her decision was not only momentous for herself. It also made her the first girl runner in Freedom’s history to sign with a college. “It was very overwhelming, exciting and a bit nerve racking,” said Smith, who will study early childhood education. Smith helped the Patriots reach the Class 4A state meet as a senior, where she finished 67th overall in 20:30.98. Augusta State, a Division II program, competes in the Peach Belt Conference.Freedom trio sign813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS February 8, 2012 16 Taylor Tippett, left, and Deuce Gruden sign with USF and Lafayette, respectively. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)Three Cowboys signBy Kyle LoJacono klojacono@cnewspubs.com A trio of Gaither athletes made their college intentions official after signing letters of intent on National Signing Day Feb. 1. Football players Mikhail Reece and Tyler McCollum signed with Yale and Colgate universities, respectively, while Kaycee McGuire will play soccer at Thomas University. McGuire, a midfielder, started playing soccer at age 4 and is thankful for the chance to remain on the field. “It feels great because such a small percent of girls get a chance to do this,” said McGuire, who is undecided on her major. She then added, “It was definitely nerve racking. I was shaking while I was writing.”McGuire recorded nine goals and 19 assists during her four years at Gaither. She helped the Cowboys make the playoffs in 2010-11 and advance to the regional finals for the third time in the program’s 27-year history.Thomas is an NAIA program in the Association of Independent Institutions conference. As for the football players, signing on the same day held special significance for Reece and McCollum, who have been best friends since middle school.“It makes it 100 times better,” McCollum said of signing together. “We’ve put in so much work to get better, so just knowing we both have someplace to go is a great thing.”Reece was confident both would be playing at the next level. “I remember there was a game he had to sit out of and he was really depressed about it,” Reece said. “He thought he wasn’t going to get to play in college and I told him ‘Tyler you’re going to play.’ Sure enough he got offers.” McCollum, who started playing at age 7, said signing was a relief. “It’s like no other feeling, but really I’m glad it’s over,” said McCollum, who will study economics or business. “It’s something I worked hard for all my life, and now I get a chance to prove myself in college.” Reece, who plans on studying engineering, said Yale’s offer was his first. “I’ve been blessed with opportunities and it’s great to know I’ve made the most of those opportunities,” said Reece, who started playing in seventh grade. “I’ve always had good grades, but when I learned you could get a scholarship to play football I decided to go for it.” The 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end had 87 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries last year. McCollum, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound corner back, picked off five passes while adding 52 tackles and two sacks in 2011. The defensive duo helped Gaither go 9-4 while allowing 12.8 points per game last season. The 2011 Cowboys also made the regional finals for the second time in program history. Yale and Colgate are Division I programs in the Ivy and Patriot leagues, respectively. Tippett, Gruden sign

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither boys soccer team won its first two regional tournament games this year,but only had to take the field once. The Cowboys (19-4-1) defeated Eagle Lake Lake Region (17-7-3) 3-1 at home on Jan.31 in the Class 4A regional quarterfinals. They were scheduled to play at Lakeland George Jenkins (21-4-2) in the semis on Feb. 3,but the Eagles had to forfeit the contest after using an ineligible player in their quarterfinals game against Freedom. Gaither coach Eric Sims said he got official word from the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) around 8:30 a.m.on Feb.3.FHSAA spokesman Corey Sobers said Freedom will be credited with another win this year,moving its record to 12-5-1,but the Patriots won't get the chance to move on as per the association's bylaws. The forfeit gives Sims 200 wins during his 11 years coaching high school,all with the Cowboys. Gaither started the quarterfinals contest slowly,but got on the board first in the 20thmin ute when Jonas Bukh buried home a pass from Cody Hodgens,who subbed in less than a minute before the tally. The Thunder answered in the 29th minute.Jacob Kalogridis hit a through ball to Brent Moore,who capitalized. The home squad allowed seven shots on goal while taking four.Lake Region also controlled possession for most of the half after the water break. "My message to them at halftime was we played about as bad as we can play and we're not losing,"Sims said."That's a good thing.Somebody has to find a way to step up and light a fire under us." Bukh worked with Paul Barrett,who was moved from midfield to forward after halftime,to light that fire.Bukh sent a through ball to Barrett that he fired past goalkeeper Fernando Aguirre in the 52nd minute. "It was unbelievable,"Barrett said."I started off kind of slow,but I was able to bounce back with Jonas helping me out.He just hit it up to me,and all I had to do was chase it down and get a shot.I missed two early,but Jonas kept passing it to me." The two combined on an almost identical goal in the 74th minute. "Paul makes good runs,so why not get him the ball,"Bukh said."I know he can finish." Sims said of Barrett,"He's so big and so strong and so fast.Once he gets going he's hard to stop." Bukh's goal was his fifth in three games, giving him 21 this season.Just having Bukh was a gift for the Cowboys,as the senior forward lived in his native Denmark last year after spending his freshman and sophomore years at Gaither. "The season he's put in is up there with some of the top performances we've had since I've been here,"Sims said."Early in the season he would have a good game,then a not so good game,so he wasn't consistent. Now it seems like he's more consistent because he's fit." Cowboys goalkeeper Carlos de Oliveira, a converted midfielder,made nine saves,six in the first half. "The thing with Carlos is he isn't your typical keeper,"Sims said."The way that he plays is different,and I think that's played to our advantage.He's made some saves that regular goalkeepers wouldn't make." Reaching the regional finals is nothing new to Gaither as the program has done so seven times in its 27-year history,but just making the postseason was a bit of a surprise for a squad that lost 10 seniors including its top-two goal scorers and its starting goalkeeper from a year ago. "We were expecting to get back to regionals even though we lost a lot of players," Barrett said."We had a bad first half (against Lake Region),but overall we're playing our best soccer." Cowboys senior midfielder/forward Paul Barrett had two goals in his squad's 3-1 victory against Eagle Lake Lake Region.CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS February 8,2012 17 Boys soccer regional finals*Gaither @ Kissimmee Osceola Land O' Lakes @ Gainesville East Lake *Games on Tuesday,Feb.7 at 7 p.m.Gaither advances to regional finalsSPORTS Gaither senior forward Jonas Bukh scored a goal and added two assists in the regional quarterfinals on Jan. 31.

Allen raised his arms into the air as his team ran to celebrate at half court. “I’ve been telling these girls back since September, I want to be part of something that’s called forever,” Allen said. “At the end of that game, I told those girls to celebrate and to point up to that banner and say ‘forever’.” The No. 1 seeded Warriors overcame a lackluster third quarter, but came through late to defeat the No. 2 Patriots 5139 on Feb. 3 for the Class 7A-District 9 championship, the program’s first. Allen said the resilience and effort his team brought was some of the best he has seen all season, and it started with the mentality of playing as a team. “It’s special because of the way we did it,” Allen said. He then added, “The special thing about this team is the word team itself. Every win lately has been a team win. It just feels so special. … This championship was won by 14 girls who practice their tails off every day.” The Warriors (22-2) opened the game with a 12-0 run; stopping all of Freedom’s scoring opportunities. “You can’t start out like that,” said Patriots coach Laurie Pacholke. “In a district championship game you got to come to play, especially on their court. … We got outplayed, we got out hustled, we got out rebounded and you’re not going to win a game like that.” Guard Bailey Hooker led Steinbrenner’s early charge, scoring 13 of her squad’s points to lead 14-3 after the first quarter. She hit three shots from 3-point land in the opening half. “It was awesome,” said Hooker, who had a teamhigh 16 points and five blocks. “Coming off of the past couple of games I’ve been off a little bit on my shooting, so to come out and make that three, I knew that tonight was my night.” Patriots (18-9) guard Taylor Emery, who had a game-high 20 points, kept her team in it, working through the Warriors’ defense to start the momentum swing headed into halftime but still trailed 31-14. Freedom chipped away at Steinbrenner’s lead in the third quarter, which got as small as eight before Allen told his team to keep its focus. “I was really concerned, because it could have been a bad thing based off of what we did in that last game (against Chamberlain),” Allen said. He then added, “We turned around and made the most of it.” In the fourth quarter with Steinbrenner leading by 11, Hooker delivered the final blow with her fourth 3-pointer of the game with just more than a minute left. “She just stroked that three and I think that was an emotional lift that helped us carry to the end of the game,” Allen said. The Warriors found themselves in a tight semifinals battle on Feb. 1 with Chamberlain, which beat Gaither the night before. The Chiefs (8-12) outscored Steinbrenner 31-24 in the second half and got as close as 52-48 before the tournament host pulled away to win 56-48. Hooker had 14 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Rebecca Cohen and Gabby Sebastian recorded nine rebounds apiece and Rachel Briere blocked five shots. Freedom defeated Wiregrass Ranch 54-46 in the other semifinals. Guard Shad Williams led the Patriots with 17 points, while Emery added 11 Bulls (20-8) senior guard Kelly McCaffrey had a team-high 23 points to finish with 1,575 for her career.

In a mob of white jerseys huddled around coach J.R. Allen, Hooker along with her teammates turned to the line of banners hung on the gymnasium wall and shouted “forever.” Hooker, the Warriors’ leading scorer this year with 19.8 points per game, scored 16 to help Steinbrenner put away Freedom for the program’s first district championship on Feb. 3. “We worked so hard,” Hooker said. “To finally put something up on that banner that we’ve been waiting for, for three years, is like fire. I’m so happy.” For Hooker, it was her second time hoisting a district trophy this year. She did the same in October as a middle hitter on the volleyball team against, whom else but the Patriots. Like with basketball, Hooker has been on Steinbrenner’s volleyball team since her freshman year, helping the Warriors to a 26-0 district record and three championships. Basketball had less of a winning tradition, posting a 24-17 record, 12-8 in district, during the last two years and zero playoff appearances. That changed this season. “It’s the best experience, because we didn’t have to really work that hard for the volleyball one, but to be in the middle of it and in the midst of it in the basketball championship, it’s ridiculous how much fire goes through your veins when you’re on the court,” Hooker said. An All-Laker/All-Lutz News first team selection for volleyball, Hooker once again put the team on her back after a rough district semifinals contest against No. 4 seeded Chamberlain, which the Warriors squeaked through 56-48. In practice the following day, Hooker made sure that her teammates were on the right page and led a players-only meeting to discuss what had occurred. “We had a lot of emotional stuff going on, so we basically brought it all together,” Hooker said. She then added, “We let everything out because we’re a family. We’re a team and we knew we had one goal coming out into this season, and we weren’t going to let one bad game ruin our chances of winning the district title. We came together and pushed through, and we mentally got tough and ready for Freedom.” In practice all week, Hooker said she worked specifically on shooting, which wasn’t where it needed to be in her eyes. “This was going to be my game,” Hooker said of the district finals. “I spent time in practice just working on my shots and all of us contributed. Every single person stepped it up and did something they don’t normally do. “I have so many words that I could say,” Hooker continued. “I’m so pumped about this, and so happy. We’re a part of forever, and our team is up on that wall forever.” Steinbrenner junior guard Bailey Hooker put up 30 points in the Warriors’ two district tournament games.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Since installing a $20,000 laser machine six months ago, customizing and repairing jewelry is now safer and faster for Victor Cheung, owner of Franklin Jewelers in Land O' Lakes, "I use the laser every day for about 75 percent of my repair jobs," said Victor. "It allows me to bond metals together more precisely than welding, plus it protects stones that can be damaged by heat pearls, tanzanite, topaz and many other precious stones." It is unusual for a neighborhood jewelry store to have laser technology. "I'd say 95 percent of retail jewelry shops do not have a laser because of the huge expense," said Victor. "I see it as an investment in my customers and my store's future." It has been seven years since Victor relocated Franklin Jewelers from downtown Tampa. He bought the shop, which dates to 1946, in 2003 and operated it from its downtown location until it moved to the newly opened Collier Commons shopping center at SR 54 and Collier Boulevard. Victor came to suburban Pasco to follow the area's growth and to be closer to his home in New Tampa. He and his wife, Linda, who is a pharmacist, have three school-aged children ages 9, 14 and 15. Victor grew up close to USF, moving with his family from Hong Kong when he was 8 years old. Linda's family also emigrated from Hong Kong and the couple met as children in their north Tampa neighborhood. "We were childhood sweethearts," he said. Victor graduated from USF with an economics degree. While in college he worked part-time at a jewelry store and learned the ins-and-outs of the business, including the wholesale diamond business. He also learned the art of repairing watches and fine jewelry. Victor's many skills allow him to keep his costs low and to sell his jewelry at prices 50 percent less than same quality jewelry found at chain stores in area malls. "I try to be very reasonable and help people out by keeping my costs low," said Victor. "Because many people cannot afford new jewelry in today's economy, I save customers money by taking their old jewelry and remounting their diamonds and precious stones." For Valentine's Day, Victor suggests for women a sterling silver charm bracelet with custom Reflection Beads, an alternative to the trendy Pandora brand. Reflection items sell for half the price, with a sterling silver bracelet beginning at $28 and charms and beads at just $13. "Of course, heart-shaped pendants and earrings with diamond in-sets are always popular and we have many priced at just $99," said Victor. For those with a bigger Valentine's Day budget, the store is a certified re-seller of Rolex watches and other high-end brands. Franklin Jewelry also pays customers cash for their gold jewelry. Buying from an established neighborhood jeweler like Victor gives customers peace of mind, said Victor. "We are trustworthy because we have been in business for many years and are here for the long term," said Victor. "Our customers know that the jewelry they buy from us is authentic and our prices always fair."

Unless they happen to be in Land O Lakes for one of Harry Wilkinsfree outdoor movies. The Land OLakes-based Acme Outdoor Movie Company provides an alternative to the traditional movie experience by hosting outdoor movies on larger-than-life screens. Instead of fighting over armrests,audience members sit on blankets in the grass and lounge in beach chairs.Overpriced popcorn and drinks arent an issue;moviegoers are encouraged to bring their own snacks. It was a blast,said Gary DePury,who took his family of five to several movies during warmer months.We really enjoyed it. DePurys clan took in Monsters,Inc., Goonies,and the second in the Indiana Jonesseries. DePury discovered the movies when he was driving by the Land OLakes Community Center and saw a movie showing on a screen he estimates was four stories high.He couldnt stop that night but told his wife about it and vowed to take in the next show with his family. His children 9,11 and 13 years old loved it,and so did his mother-in-law,said the Land OLakes real estate broker. It was better than going to a regular theater,DePury said.For one thing,its free. DePury also liked the relaxed atmosphere,where you dont have to sneak past The small screen can be used for a variety of neighborhood events. (Photo courtesy of Acme Outdoor Movie Co.)By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe boys are all trooping into the campground and their dads come along and tell them they need to put up their tents. So,the boys go off to pitch their tents. Thats just one of dozens of scenes filmed in Tampa Bay recently for a new television and DVD series called Samuel L.Collins and the Search for Biblical Truths. The Lutz family behind the project describes the series as a combination of a Young Raiders of the Lost Ark,the hightech gadgetry of Mission Impossibleand the scriptural conviction of Veggie Tales. In each half-hour episode,13-year-old Samuel L.Collins pursues top-secret clues to solve encrypted cipher codes that reveal Biblical truths. As young viewers watch the program, Samuel invites them to help him solve the clues. The show takes on such themes such as self-control,leadership,obedience and integrity as Samuel learns how to use scriptural passages to discern Biblical truths. He is presented with a dilemma.He confronts the dilemma with scripture.Then he comes to a realization,said Kristi Collins, who is Samuels mom and the writer for the series. The show will begin airing on the NRB Network beginning March 10, Segments of the show have been filmed in Bali,Singapore,Berlin,Kentucky and most recently Tampa Bay. John Collins,the producer of the series, said the goal is to show viewers places they may never get a chance to visit.The Lutz man said he couldnt ignore Tampa Bay, since he grew up in the area. Were completing the project for television.But were also completing the project to be sold as individual DVDs,which is whyLutz teen stars in new Bible-based show Boys pitch tents during filming of a new Christian-based television program.

She lost her aunt to breast cancer in 1982,the first of many encounters she has had with the disease.Johnsons mother died of liver cancer in 1991,followed by her father succumbing to lung and brain cancer in 2003. Johnson has also faced the difficult challenge of battling cancer herself.She was diagnosed with endometrial cancer in 1991 and breast cancer in 2001.Fortunately for her it was detected early enough both times and the tumors were completely removed.Today she is cancer free and will be sharing her story and message at the fourth annual Concert For a Cure at the Land OLakes Community Center on Saturday,Feb.25.If I can survive so can others,Johnson said.Im spreading the word.Im a survivor. Im behind the banner.When you have survived and are still living from cancer,not one time but twice in my case,thats something to celebrate. Johnson doesnt look at her history with cancer as a negative,but rather something that has made her a better person. People ask me how do you go on, Johnson said.You literally lost your family.I tell them I believe everything happens for a reason,and I wouldnt change a thing about my life.Cancer made me stronger made me realize who my real true friends are.Who was really there for me in my life.Im a fighter,always have been.If you just give up thats not a challenge.I say bring it on.Ive been through so much,and Im still here.Its not my time to leave this earth.Any pain that she relives is negated by the good that comes from spreading awareness.If I can tell my story and educate a person about how important it is to check a lump out,or get your yearly physical,if one person listens to me I have saved a life, Johnson said.I dont spread the word about treatments.I spread the word that if you have lost your job and you dont have the funds or insurance there are still so many resources that will help you. For example,October is breast cancer awareness,and almost every doctor does cash visits and lowers mammograms price, Johnson continued.Also the board of health right here in Land OLakes offers yearly exams and mammograms. Lilly Fontanez organizes the event as a fundraiser for her Relay For Life team called the Sun Rays.She said having people like Johnson at the concert helps the message of awareness and perseverance hit home for those in attendance. Shes a survivor,Fontanez said. Having someone like her tell her story gives people hope they can get through their own fight with cancer.It also shows what early detection can do so other people get checked out like she was.Johnson will be one of several cancer survivors who will share their story at the event.The concert itself will include several local bands playing in front of the center. The day will also include a taste of the town with several local restaurants.Admission, which is $10 for adults and $5 for kids,includes five tickets to sample the food.People can purchase additional tickets for $1 each.The event will also include pony rides and a bounce house for younger guests. All the money raised goes toward the Sun Rays,which will donate the funds to the American Cancer Society at the Relay For Life event at Land OLakes High on March 30.The goal is to bring in $2,500.

When a baker and his wife learn theyve been cursed with childlessness by the witch next door, they journey Into the Woods to break the spell. Along the way they encounter Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Rapunzel and Jack and his Beanstalk. The stories become tangled as each character figures out what happily ever after means.

(Photos courtesy of North Tampa Art League) Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe community will get a chance to talk about the possibility of a four-day week for Pasco County schools at a series of public forums. 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.

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 forums, all at 6:30 p.m., are: Thursday, Feb. 9 Pasco Middle auditorium in Dade City.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS February 8, 2012 8 By B.J. JarvisPasco Cooperative ExtensionPesticide use over the last 50 years has allowed the United States to excel as a major food-producer, have cleaner, healthier homes, and share in the dream of creating beautiful landscapes. Routine use of pesticides, however, can have negative effects. Insects can develop resistance, requiring different or more lethal doses to achieve desired results. Many past products are no longer effective due, at least in part, from overuse. Only about 1 percent of insects cause damage to American landscapes. Many insects are desirable, like bees that pollinate our fruits and vegetables or butterflies for their beauty. Some are considered good bugs, helping to keep destructive insect populations in check. Broad-spectrum pesticides destroy both the good and the bad. Destructive bugs rebound with few predatory bugs to provide natural controls, starting a vicious cycle of spraying. The best long-term success can be achieved by minimizing, not eliminating, those damaging pests by a combination of monitoring and actions known as integrated pest management. To garden in a more Florida-friendly way, start by choosing plants that are naturally resistant to many pests and plant them in their preferred site conditions. Not doing this stresses plants, which are more prone to both diseases and insect infestations. Also avoid over-fertilization and over-watering. Too much of these are stressors, too. If pests do attack a particular plant, first consider at what point it is necessary to do something about it. Some minor damage should be acceptable. This allows good insects to do their part and lessens the possibility of pesticide resistance. If damage reaches unacceptable levels, then try low-toxicity methods such as a strong spray of water to dislodge the pest or smashing them (if you can tolerate that approach!) If these measures dont work, look for products that are low-toxicity or pest-specific. Products containing Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt) control caterpillars. Other less-toxic products such as horticultural oils, insecticidal soaps, and plant-derived products (botanicals) are also great options. Pesticides can play an important role in managing insects but should not be the first approach. Instead, save the pesticides for last to make sure their effectiveness is maintained in the future. NATURE NOTES For more information about Integrated Pest Management gardening techniques, check out the University of Floridas IPM website at: http://ipm.ifas.ufl.edu/. Gardening questions can also be posed to horticulturists at Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474 or Pasco@pascocountyfl.net. Too Much of a Good Thing PESTICIDESLaker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Southwest Florida Water Management Districts Conner Preserve will be temporarily closed to the public for hog hunts Feb. 7. Only permitted hunters will be allowed on the property during these dates. All of the permits for these hunts have been sold. Conner Preserve is located at 22500 SR 52 north of Land O Lakes in Pasco County. The hunt is one of a series of hog hunts being held on district lands in an effort to control the damage being caused to the natural habitats. The district only allows hogs to be controlled through hunts when the damage they cause is at unacceptable levels, and damage is occurring more frequently and with increasing severity. Wild hogs live throughout Florida in various habitats, but prefer moist forests and swamps, as well as pine flatwoods. They are omnivorous and feed by rooting with their broad snouts, which can cause extensive damage to the natural habitats. In fact, they can leave an area looking like a plowed field. Wild hogs are not native to Florida and are believed to have been introduced by explorer Hernando DeSoto as early as 1539. They can weigh more than 150 pounds and travel in herds of several females and their offspring. For more information, please call the Land Management Section at the districts Brooksville headquarters at (800) 423-1476 or (352) 796-7211, ext. 4467.Conner Preserve closed for hog hunts Feb. 7 Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportAn army of volunteers turned out last tax season to prepare more than 1,000 tax returns in the Zephyrhills and Dade City area.

Hes hoping his book,Maximus the Musical Elephant,will make children smile and make them eager to read more books. And he hopes in the not-too-distant future he can publish another book that will entertain them as they learn. He still recalls the delight he felt when he read Green Eggs and Hamand other Dr.Seuss books.Hes been interested in poetry ever since. In his book,Maximus the Musical Elephant,Maximus gets a peanut stuck in his trunk,and it is not until the peanut is freed that he learns that his trunk is actually a wonderful musical instrument. Upon the discovery,the elephant cannot contain his joy and soon begins entertaining everyone at the zoo.His act becomes wildly popular,driving up ticket sales,which in turn,creates the need to expand the zoo. The book,illustrated by Rebecca Riffey, is a self-published work produced by Tate Publishing & Enterprises. Langston,who lives in Wesley Chapel, said he decided to go that route because he had a deep desire to share his work, and he believes it will find an audience. You have to invest in yourself and you have to believe in yourself.The same energy that you put into other things,you have to put into making your dreams come true,he said. The 37-year-old said he visited India, where he saw the power of elephants,and while there learned that they represent good luck. He decided to write a story about elephants,and he came up with the idea to transform the elephants trunk into a musical instrument.As he wrote the story,he was inspired by the great jazz musician, Louis Armstrong. It took him about four months to write the story,constantly tweaking it and reading versions of it aloud to others.He said he finally had to stop himself from making additional changes because he knows no matter what he writes,there will always be room for improvement.Authors have to step away at some point,if they ever want to finish a work,he said. He said the story he wanted to tell is that you never know what youll discover, until you try. In this case,Maximus didnt know he could play music. Every one of us has something that were supposed to do.We have a Godgiven talent.We search for what that talent is,and if youre lucky enough to find it in this lifetime,you have to build upon it and work at it. He said he finds inspiration everywhere. When we actually slow down,we can hear the birds singing.We can see the silver lining of the clouds.We can see the leaves actually fall to the ground.You can see the flowers bloom.You can see life,if you slow down,take a look. Life is full of so many mysteries and things that we dont see because we are so busy looking at what we can see and what we have to overcome. Langston is married,and he and his wife,Vanessa,have four children:Miya, Keana,Alex and Shay. Although he has only published one book,Langston has written scores of others.He thinks it is his calling is to write and share stories,and he believes they may one day be the source for movies or songs or other adaptations. For now,hes simply savoring the start of a new chapter in his life. Hes accomplished one of his dreams: He is a published author. James Langston Jr. with his book, Maximus the Musical Elephant.

Earl, 67, claimed his record-setting 16th national title at the Winter National Doubles Championships in Bradenton Jan. 23-25. The Zephyrhills resident has been striving for the mark since he picked up his first trophy in 2000 on the same courts. Im just absolutely thrilled to have won 16 national championships, said Earl, who has won the event four times. I started out with no idea what shuffleboard was about. I retired to play golf. Shuffleboard is so highly competitive and there are great players playing right now. Earl first picked up shuffleboard more than 20 years ago after his father-in-law, Paul Bush, introduced him to the game. He had to drag me there, Earl said. I wound up winning and I got hooked. Shuffleboard scratched Earls competitive itch in a way golfing never could.Golf is noncompetive because you play against the course, not your opponent, Earl said. If you make a good shot in golf I cant do anything about it. In shuffleboard I can knock you off the court. It takes me back to my childhood of playing baseball and football.Earls wife, Vivian, saw his competitive nature when they began dating more than 30 years ago. It was that way with his work, Vivian said. Then when he retired we was supposed to be golfing, but that wasnt competitive enough for him. Golf went on the backburner. Hes always been a go-getter. He never does anything halfway. Earls drive has earned him dozens of career wins, along with induction into the district, state, national and international halls of fame, but his major goal during the last few years has been getting the national championship record. It takes a lot of pressure off getting No. 16, Earl said. Last year I did not win a national championship, and thats the first time thats happened since I won my first one. That might well have been because I tried so hard. Sarasota resident Jim Miller paired with Earl for the record-breaker because his normal partner, Stan Williamson, couldnt attend. Miller and Earl had never played on a team before but had played against each other several times.Whenever I play him he gives me a difficult time, Earl said. Weve split about half the times weve played. I knew he was a good player, and I knew I could count on him to keep the other players off the board.The finals was a close three-game contest against Henry Strong, a winter resident of Zephyrhills, and Paul Prescott. The second game of the match was the only one Earl and Miller lost at the event. The victory moves Earl back to No. 1 in the world rankings. He had been top ranked for the first year they had the standings, but he dropped last July. Sometimes when you have a year like I had last year you feel like maybe I dont have it anymore, Earl said. I thought maybe I cant do it. Probably everyone has that happen at some point. Earl pushed through that dry spell and past Lary Faris, the previous record holder.I sent him a note and said thats No. 16 and he sent me back a note of congratulations, Earl said. I would not be surprised if he came up from Sun City to see me and congratulate me in person, which is like him to do.Earl said he still has a few goals left, but plans on taking more time off now that he has the national titles record. My goal is to back off the travel I have to do to play national championships, but having said that it isnt like me at all, Earl said. To say that is one thing and to do that is another. Now I dont have to do it. I probably will, but I dont have to. Theres a big difference between what you have to do and what you want to do. Earl Ball, right, displays his 16th national shuffleboard championship. He won the record-breaking title with Jim Miller.

If so, Home Instead Senior Care of East Pasco wants to hear about their volunteer work as part of the Salute to Senior Services program, which honors senior volunteers for the contributions they make to their communities. The program is searching for the most outstanding senior volunteer in each state and will culminate with the selection of a national Salute to Senior Service winner during Older Americans Month in May. Helping others defines life for many local retired seniors, said Lynelle Bonneville co-owner of the Home Instead Senior Care office serving East Pasco County. And what a difference we have observed in seniors health, attitude and outlook among those who choose to stay active as they age.Nominees must be 65 years of age or older and volunteer at least 15 hours a month. Nominations will be accepted at www.SalutetoSeniorService.com through March 15, 2012. Nomination forms also can be requested at ckoehler@homeinsteadinc.com.Fifty state winners and one national winner will be introduced during Older Americans Month in May when $5,000 will be donated to the national winners charity of choice.According to research conducted by the Home Instead Senior Care network, 52 percent of seniors volunteer their time through unpaid community service. Nearly 20 percent of seniors surveyed started volunteering when they reached the traditional age of retirement 65 or older. Furthermore, 20 percent of seniors who volunteer say that their community service is the most important thing they do. Dr. Erwin Tan, director of the Senior Corps, a national organization that links more than 400,000 Americans 55 and older to service opportunities, agrees. In addition, its a great way for them to learn new things whether a skill or just something about an issue in which they have an interest, Tan said. Volunteering is just a great way to expand their horizons.

Season one will have seven episodes, she said. The boys acting in the Tampa Bay episode are from local families,living in Lutz,Land OLakes,New Port Richey,Tarpon Springs and other nearby communities, Kristi Collins said. The episode filmed in Tampa Bay focuses on the theme of obedience,she said. The boys filmed all over Tampa Bay for two weeks,spending time at a Lutz campground,at the University of Tampa,at Lettuce Lake Park,at Clearwater Marine Aquarium and canoeing on the Hillsborough River.Rosh Jones is the cinematographer. The series is not like traditional television. The episodes are not in any particular order,Kristi Collins said.They are made for moms to grab off of the shelves independently.Its Christian programming.Were trying to teach children how to take multiple scriptures and reason.We get into a situation in our churches,where we hear a lot of the letter of the law,but then the kids go searching on Can I have another cookie? Theres no scripture in the Bible that tells them if they can have another cookie or not.So,we have to teach them the spirit of the law,Kristi Collins said. There was no way Jesus could teach about all of the small nuances and goodness knows,they didnt have the Internet or all of the technology or the modern conveniences that we have.Were trying to say, Take these pieces of Scripture,what is your conclusion?she added. The Collins family held focus groups to get reactions to some of their early work, and the reactions were generally favorable, although they have done some tweaking in response to suggestions. We had six focus groups.We put it in front of about 250 people.It was a good use of our time to hear from them,Kristi Collins said. They were especially excited that Sam was going to be a role model and that he was choosing to show integrity and Christian character to little boys and girls. Theres not a lot out for moms to grab off the library shelf,at the Christian bookstore, as entertainment. The family is providing the television programming for free,she said.It will be broadcast in Russia,Indonesia and Australia, she said. Were willing to give it away free.Go dub it in whatever you need to go do ministry around the globe,if this is a tool that can be of assistance to you,she said. DVD sales and sales of workbooks to accompany the series will produce revenues, which the family hopes to invest into more episodes. DVD sales hopefully will pay us enough to keep on funding it,Kristi Collins said. So far,the family has invested about $100,000 in the project,John Collins said. We have a business that has been profitable.We do corporate events.Thats taken care of our investment here,he said. He thinks theres a void in the market for this type of programming. We wanted to show an example to young boys of a young boy who struggles with everyday issues that they struggle with. You have shows like Veggie Tales for when kids are younger.Once youre past Veggie Tales,there isnt anything until they become adults. Sam Collins said hes pleased to be involved in the project.

In addition to movies,Acme Outdoor Movies has projected sporting events,the New Years Eve ball drop,and music videos. Acme is able to set up movie screens in virtually any environment.The company often provides services for churches,clubs and bars,bands,and private homeowners hosting parties. While Acme regularly schedules corporate events,the company also puts on free movies periodically as a community service. When the economy took a turn for the worse,we decided to find a way for our company to give back to the community in a way that would help families and bring some joy into peoples lives,said Wilkins, Acmes chief operating officer. Wilkins believes that outdoor movies have their own unique edge.Each event averages 300 to 400 attendees. It is a casual atmosphere that encourages the people attending to mix and mingle,he explained.The kids can run around,play ball,toss a Frisbee,meet new friends and otherwise enjoy themselves prior to the movie starting. Adults are allowed to get in on the fun as well. Adults have an opportunity to relax and meet their neighbors,knowing that their kids are within sight and are having fun, Wilkins said. Acme recently showed The Polar Express at an event for the Bay Areas Commonwealth Insurance.Approximately 300 people attended the event and agreed that a great time was had by all,Wilkins said.The next day,the owner of Commonwealth Insurance called to say how pleased he was with the entire event. In Floridas notoriously fickle weather,an outdoor movie may seem hit or miss. However,Acme has experienced little trouble from inclement weather. We have no control over the weather,so if an event is rained out we simply reschedule for another date,Wilkins said.During all of 2011,we only needed to reschedule about three events.The next planned free movie will be The Glass Windowon Feb.11 at the Land O Lakes Community Center,5401 Land OLakes Blvd.Tim Paskert,one of the producers,will attend the event and speak to the audience.

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentSteinbrenner senior Cici Gonzalez wanted to make the moment last forever. After school athletic director Eddie Henderson told her to sign her letter of intent, Gonzalez opened the door into her future at University of Tampa where she will continue her soccer career.This is amazing, it feels like all my hard work paid off and everything Ive ever wanted has finally come true, said Gonzalez, who tallied 91 goals during her high school career.She joined teammate Taylor Valley, who signed with Armstrong Atlantic State University, along with football players Zack Jones and Zack Boryla, who signed with Stetson University on Feb. 1 National Signing Day. Jones was a member of the Warriors inaugural football team in 2009, and will get the opportunity to build something new again with Stetson, which restarts its football program after a 56-year hiatus. It just feels good to think about the work I put in and its all paying off, Jones said. He then added, I like (starting a new program), because every catch you get is a new record, every yard you make is a new record, so its cool knowing you build a program from the feet up. Boryla, who missed more than half the season with injuries, said just getting a look from a major university was a blessing.I just wanted to prove that the injury didnt affect me and that Im still who I am and I can still play at the next level, Boryla said.Valley, who scored 13 goals during Steinbrenners bid to repeat as state champions this year, felt she made the right choice and wants to keep Armstrong atop the Division II soccer poll. It seems like its been so long, finding the college and going on visits. Now its kind of like relief, Im so happy and I know I made the right decision, said Valley. First-year Steinbrenner girls soccer coach Robert Woodard said itll be tough replacing both Gonzalez and Valley. Im really happy for them because theyre both great players, and they really made the transition for me a lot easier this year, Woodard said. He then added, On the other hand, I have to replace them. Thats going to be a challenge to have somebody step up and fill those shoes. Thats going to be a big task. Gonzalez ranks the signing right up there with the Warriors state title last year. Theyre definitely equal in accomplishments, Gonzalez said. One was kind of a team thing and now its a personal reward, so its equally amazing to me. Steinbrenner athletic director Eddie Henderson sits in front of, from left, Cici Gonzalez, Taylor Valley, Zack Jones and Zack Boryla during National Signing Day. (Photo by Jeff Odom)Gonzalez highlights Warriors signees Coaches and parents are encouraged to let The Laker/Lutz News know about student-athletes when they are signing to play in college. The sooner we know about the ceremony, the more likely we will be able to cover it. Email Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono at klojacono@cnewspubs.com with all details. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comCarrollwood Day School (CDS) had a pair of athletes participate in National Signing Day on Feb. 1. Girls soccer player Taylor Tippett and football player Deuce Gruden signed with the University of South Florida (USF) and Lafayette College, respectively, becoming the second and third Patriots to ever sign letters of intent. Tippett, who started playing around age 5, committed to USF almost a year ago and said it felt good to finally sign.It was a feeling of relief because of all the work it took to get here, said Tippett, who will major in biology. Now I can accomplish my next goals at USF.She described the day as unreal with the entire school watching her sign with the Division I program. Ive seen people signing on TV before, and I never really thought much about it until I was up there signing, Tippett said. Tippett had a team-high 18 goals while adding six assists to help CDS finish with a program record 12 wins as a senior. She will likely play midfield for the Bulls, who play in the Big East Conference. Gruden, who started playing at age 10, said its been a dream of his to play college football. Now I get four more years to play, Gruden said. Its a great honor to go to a school like Lafayette. Its a great day. Gruden played a little bit of everything for the Patriots and said Lafayette will play him at various positions to see which he takes to best. Slot receiver, running back, throwing the ball, defense, special teams; just wherever they need me, Gruden said. Gruden played quarterback his last two years, completing 57 percent of his passes for 3,050 yards and 32 touchdowns to nine interceptions while adding another 794 rushing yards. He also had 130 tackles and five sacks the last two seasons as a safety. Gruden plans on studying exercise science with the goal of becoming a strength and conditioning coach. Lafayette is a Division I program in the Patriot League. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThree Freedom High athletes inked letters of intent to play in college on Feb. 1 National Signing Day. Emily Ball will play soccer at the University of South Carolina (USC), football player Larry Thorpe picked Butler Community College and girls cross country runner Ashley Smith will pound the pavement at Augusta State University. Thorpe, a safety, is a newcomer to football, picking up the sport by accident as a junior. Former Patriots football coach Tchecoy Blount said he asked Freedom boys soccer coach Dennis Derflinger if he had anyone who could be a kicker. I saw this big 6-foot-3 guy come into my room and said are you looking for a kicker, Blount said. I said I am, but I think we can find another spot for you. Thorpe led the Patriots with 81 tackles last season. Im very happy to get this opportunity, said Thorpe, who plans on becoming a firefighter. Ill just do my best to make everyone proud. My dad (Garfield) always told me that education is important, and the last few years Ive realized that. Thorpe also thanked Blount for being like a second dad. Butler, a member of the Jayhawk Conference, finished last season as the National Junior College Athletic Associations No. 2 ranked squad. Ball is far from a newcomer to soccer. Shes played the game since age 4. Ball, a goalkeeper, committed to USC almost a year ago, more than enough waiting to make her plans official. Its kind of surreal because Ive been waiting a long time to sign, said Ball, who plans on studying biomedical engineering. Im very fortunate to have this opportunity and I couldnt have done it without the support of all my coaches and my family. Ball recorded 186 saves and 10 shutouts last season. Her work between the pipes helped the Patriots win two district championships and make the postseason the last three years. Ball is accustomed to having eyes on her on the field but was nervous while signing. I was shaking a little bit up there, Ball said with a smile. I just wanted to make sure I spelled my name right. USC is a Division I program in the Southeastern Conference. Smith started running while at Liberty Middle. Her decision was not only momentous for herself. It also made her the first girl runner in Freedoms history to sign with a college. It was very overwhelming, exciting and a bit nerve racking, said Smith, who will study early childhood education. Smith helped the Patriots reach the Class 4A state meet as a senior, where she finished 67th overall in 20:30.98. Augusta State, a Division II program, competes in the Peach Belt Conference.Freedom trio sign813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS February 8, 2012 16 Taylor Tippett, left, and Deuce Gruden sign with USF and Lafayette, respectively. (Photo by Kyle LoJacono)Three Cowboys signBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA trio of Gaither athletes made their college intentions official after signing letters of intent on National Signing Day Feb. 1. Football players Mikhail Reece and Tyler McCollum signed with Yale and Colgate universities, respectively, while Kaycee McGuire will play soccer at Thomas University. McGuire, a midfielder, started playing soccer at age 4 and is thankful for the chance to remain on the field. It feels great because such a small percent of girls get a chance to do this, said McGuire, who is undecided on her major. She then added, It was definitely nerve racking. I was shaking while I was writing.McGuire recorded nine goals and 19 assists during her four years at Gaither. She helped the Cowboys make the playoffs in 2010-11 and advance to the regional finals for the third time in the programs 27-year history.Thomas is an NAIA program in the Association of Independent Institutions conference. As for the football players, signing on the same day held special significance for Reece and McCollum, who have been best friends since middle school.It makes it 100 times better, McCollum said of signing together. Weve put in so much work to get better, so just knowing we both have someplace to go is a great thing.Reece was confident both would be playing at the next level. I remember there was a game he had to sit out of and he was really depressed about it, Reece said. He thought he wasnt going to get to play in college and I told him Tyler youre going to play. Sure enough he got offers. McCollum, who started playing at age 7, said signing was a relief. Its like no other feeling, but really Im glad its over, said McCollum, who will study economics or business. Its something I worked hard for all my life, and now I get a chance to prove myself in college. Reece, who plans on studying engineering, said Yales offer was his first. Ive been blessed with opportunities and its great to know Ive made the most of those opportunities, said Reece, who started playing in seventh grade. Ive always had good grades, but when I learned you could get a scholarship to play football I decided to go for it. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound defensive end had 87 tackles, 5.5 sacks and two fumble recoveries last year. McCollum, a 6-foot-1, 175-pound corner back, picked off five passes while adding 52 tackles and two sacks in 2011. The defensive duo helped Gaither go 9-4 while allowing 12.8 points per game last season. The 2011 Cowboys also made the regional finals for the second time in program history.

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither boys soccer team won its first two regional tournament games this year,but only had to take the field once. The Cowboys (19-4-1) defeated Eagle Lake Lake Region (17-7-3) 3-1 at home on Jan.31 in the Class 4A regional quarterfinals. They were scheduled to play at Lakeland George Jenkins (21-4-2) in the semis on Feb. 3,but the Eagles had to forfeit the contest after using an ineligible player in their quarterfinals game against Freedom. Gaither coach Eric Sims said he got official word from the Florida High School Athletic Association (FHSAA) around 8:30 a.m.on Feb.3.FHSAA spokesman Corey Sobers said Freedom will be credited with another win this year,moving its record to 12-5-1,but the Patriots wont get the chance to move on as per the associations bylaws. The forfeit gives Sims 200 wins during his 11 years coaching high school,all with the Cowboys. Gaither started the quarterfinals contest slowly,but got on the board first in the 20thmin ute when Jonas Bukh buried home a pass from Cody Hodgens,who subbed in less than a minute before the tally. The Thunder answered in the 29th minute.Jacob Kalogridis hit a through ball to Brent Moore,who capitalized. The home squad allowed seven shots on goal while taking four.Lake Region also controlled possession for most of the half after the water break. My message to them at halftime was we played about as bad as we can play and were not losing,Sims said.Thats a good thing.Somebody has to find a way to step up and light a fire under us. Bukh worked with Paul Barrett,who was moved from midfield to forward after halftime,to light that fire.Bukh sent a through ball to Barrett that he fired past goalkeeper Fernando Aguirre in the 52nd minute. It was unbelievable,Barrett said.I started off kind of slow,but I was able to bounce back with Jonas helping me out.He just hit it up to me,and all I had to do was chase it down and get a shot.I missed two early,but Jonas kept passing it to me. The two combined on an almost identical goal in the 74th minute. Paul makes good runs,so why not get him the ball,Bukh said.I know he can finish. Sims said of Barrett,Hes so big and so strong and so fast.Once he gets going hes hard to stop. Bukhs goal was his fifth in three games, giving him 21 this season.Just having Bukh was a gift for the Cowboys,as the senior forward lived in his native Denmark last year after spending his freshman and sophomore years at Gaither. The season hes put in is up there with some of the top performances weve had since Ive been here,Sims said.Early in the season he would have a good game,then a not so good game,so he wasnt consistent. Now it seems like hes more consistent because hes fit. Cowboys goalkeeper Carlos de Oliveira, a converted midfielder,made nine saves,six in the first half. The thing with Carlos is he isnt your typical keeper,Sims said.The way that he plays is different,and I think thats played to our advantage.Hes made some saves that regular goalkeepers wouldnt make. Reaching the regional finals is nothing new to Gaither as the program has done so seven times in its 27-year history,but just making the postseason was a bit of a surprise for a squad that lost 10 seniors including its top-two goal scorers and its starting goalkeeper from a year ago. We were expecting to get back to regionals even though we lost a lot of players, Barrett said.We had a bad first half (against Lake Region),but overall were playing our best soccer.

Allen raised his arms into the air as his team ran to celebrate at half court. Ive been telling these girls back since September, I want to be part of something thats called forever, Allen said. At the end of that game, I told those girls to celebrate and to point up to that banner and say forever. The No. 1 seeded Warriors overcame a lackluster third quarter, but came through late to defeat the No. 2 Patriots 5139 on Feb. 3 for the Class 7A-District 9 championship, the programs first. Allen said the resilience and effort his team brought was some of the best he has seen all season, and it started with the mentality of playing as a team. Its special because of the way we did it, Allen said. He then added, The special thing about this team is the word team itself. Every win lately has been a team win. It just feels so special. This championship was won by 14 girls who practice their tails off every day. The Warriors (22-2) opened the game with a 12-0 run; stopping all of Freedoms scoring opportunities. You cant start out like that, said Patriots coach Laurie Pacholke. In a district championship game you got to come to play, especially on their court. We got outplayed, we got out hustled, we got out rebounded and youre not going to win a game like that. Guard Bailey Hooker led Steinbrenners early charge, scoring 13 of her squads points to lead 14-3 after the first quarter. She hit three shots from 3-point land in the opening half. It was awesome, said Hooker, who had a teamhigh 16 points and five blocks. Coming off of the past couple of games Ive been off a little bit on my shooting, so to come out and make that three, I knew that tonight was my night. Patriots (18-9) guard Taylor Emery, who had a game-high 20 points, kept her team in it, working through the Warriors defense to start the momentum swing headed into halftime but still trailed 31-14. Freedom chipped away at Steinbrenners lead in the third quarter, which got as small as eight before Allen told his team to keep its focus. I was really concerned, because it could have been a bad thing based off of what we did in that last game (against Chamberlain), Allen said. He then added, We turned around and made the most of it. In the fourth quarter with Steinbrenner leading by 11, Hooker delivered the final blow with her fourth 3-pointer of the game with just more than a minute left. She just stroked that three and I think that was an emotional lift that helped us carry to the end of the game, Allen said. The Warriors found themselves in a tight semifinals battle on Feb. 1 with Chamberlain, which beat Gaither the night before. The Chiefs (8-12) outscored Steinbrenner 31-24 in the second half and got as close as 52-48 before the tournament host pulled away to win 56-48. Hooker had 14 points and pulled down eight rebounds. Rebecca Cohen and Gabby Sebastian recorded nine rebounds apiece and Rachel Briere blocked five shots. Freedom defeated Wiregrass Ranch 54-46 in the other semifinals. Guard Shad Williams led the Patriots with 17 points, while Emery added 11 Bulls (20-8) senior guard Kelly McCaffrey had a team-high 23 points to finish with 1,575 for her career.

In a mob of white jerseys huddled around coach J.R. Allen, Hooker along with her teammates turned to the line of banners hung on the gymnasium wall and shouted forever. Hooker, the Warriors leading scorer this year with 19.8 points per game, scored 16 to help Steinbrenner put away Freedom for the programs first district championship on Feb. 3. We worked so hard, Hooker said. To finally put something up on that banner that weve been waiting for, for three years, is like fire. Im so happy. For Hooker, it was her second time hoisting a district trophy this year. She did the same in October as a middle hitter on the volleyball team against, whom else but the Patriots. Like with basketball, Hooker has been on Steinbrenners volleyball team since her freshman year, helping the Warriors to a 26-0 district record and three championships. Basketball had less of a winning tradition, posting a 24-17 record, 12-8 in district, during the last two years and zero playoff appearances. That changed this season. Its the best experience, because we didnt have to really work that hard for the volleyball one, but to be in the middle of it and in the midst of it in the basketball championship, its ridiculous how much fire goes through your veins when youre on the court, Hooker said. An All-Laker/All-Lutz News first team selection for volleyball, Hooker once again put the team on her back after a rough district semifinals contest against No. 4 seeded Chamberlain, which the Warriors squeaked through 56-48. In practice the following day, Hooker made sure that her teammates were on the right page and led a players-only meeting to discuss what had occurred. We had a lot of emotional stuff going on, so we basically brought it all together, Hooker said. She then added, We let everything out because were a family. Were a team and we knew we had one goal coming out into this season, and we werent going to let one bad game ruin our chances of winning the district title. We came together and pushed through, and we mentally got tough and ready for Freedom. In practice all week, Hooker said she worked specifically on shooting, which wasnt where it needed to be in her eyes. This was going to be my game, Hooker said of the district finals. I spent time in practice just working on my shots and all of us contributed. Every single person stepped it up and did something they dont normally do. I have so many words that I could say, Hooker continued. Im so pumped about this, and so happy. Were a part of forever, and our team is up on that wall forever. Steinbrenner junior guard Bailey Hooker put up 30 points in the Warriors two district tournament games.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Since installing a $20,000 laser machine six months ago, customizing and repairing jewelry is now safer and faster for Victor Cheung, owner of Franklin Jewelers in Land O Lakes, I use the laser every day for about 75 percent of my repair jobs, said Victor. It allows me to bond metals together more precisely than welding, plus it protects stones that can be damaged by heat pearls, tanzanite, topaz and many other precious stones. It is unusual for a neighborhood jewelry store to have laser technology. Id say 95 percent of retail jewelry shops do not have a laser because of the huge expense, said Victor. I see it as an investment in my customers and my stores future. It has been seven years since Victor relocated Franklin Jewelers from downtown Tampa. He bought the shop, which dates to 1946, in 2003 and operated it from its downtown location until it moved to the newly opened Collier Commons shopping center at SR 54 and Collier Boulevard. Victor came to suburban Pasco to follow the areas growth and to be closer to his home in New Tampa. He and his wife, Linda, who is a pharmacist, have three school-aged children ages 9, 14 and 15. Victor grew up close to USF, moving with his family from Hong Kong when he was 8 years old. Lindas family also emigrated from Hong Kong and the couple met as children in their north Tampa neighborhood. We were childhood sweethearts, he said. Victor graduated from USF with an economics degree. While in college he worked part-time at a jewelry store and learned the ins-and-outs of the business, including the wholesale diamond business. He also learned the art of repairing watches and fine jewelry. Victors many skills allow him to keep his costs low and to sell his jewelry at prices 50 percent less than same quality jewelry found at chain stores in area malls. I try to be very reasonable and help people out by keeping my costs low, said Victor. Because many people cannot afford new jewelry in todays economy, I save customers money by taking their old jewelry and remounting their diamonds and precious stones. For Valentines Day, Victor suggests for women a sterling silver charm bracelet with custom Reflection Beads, an alternative to the trendy Pandora brand. Reflection items sell for half the price, with a sterling silver bracelet beginning at $28 and charms and beads at just $13. Of course, heart-shaped pendants and earrings with diamond in-sets are always popular and we have many priced at just $99, said Victor. For those with a bigger Valentines Day budget, the store is a certified re-seller of Rolex watches and other high-end brands. Franklin Jewelry also pays customers cash for their gold jewelry. Buying from an established neighborhood jeweler like Victor gives customers peace of mind, said Victor. We are trustworthy because we have been in business for many years and are here for the long term, said Victor. Our customers know that the jewelry they buy from us is authentic and our prices always fair.
