Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com During her lifetime, Elizabeth Riegler MacManus got a thrill from tracking down historical facts, collecting artifacts and gathering old photographs of the people, places and institutions in Lutz and Land O’ Lakes. Her passion prompted her to co-author, with her daughter Susan A. MacManus, a community history, “Citrus, Sawmills, Critters & Crackers: Life in Early Lutz and Central Pasco County,” published in 1998. The younger MacManus has now wrapped up the sequel. She and her mother finished most of the legwork for the 690-page companion volume – “Going, Going ... Almost Gone: Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories” — before Elizabeth Riegler MacManus died in 2008. Her mother, blind in her final years, was familiar with the content because friends lovingly read most of it to her before she died. The book traces the history of agriculture and commerce in Lutz and Land O’ Lakes and contains a treasure trove of more than 1,000 photographs. It also shares recollections from taped oral histories collected by Elizabeth Riegler MacManus. MacManus, a widely known political science professor at the University of South Florida, said the sequel was always intended. The authors wanted to share the personal stories of early residents and publish material left out of the first volume, which prompted people to come forward with photographs and archival documents after crawling into attics or sifting through boxes in garages or closets. MacManus spent hours over the better part of a decade to complete the book. The book contains information from deeds, maps, newspaper clippings, programs and newsletters. It recounts how Lutz and Land O’ Lakes – which straddle US 41 in See HISTORY, page10 Residents gather for Easter sunrise service in 1958 at the Bullard Park band shell. (Images courtesy of Susan A. MacManus) “Going, Going, Almost Gone … Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories” chronicles the life and times of early Lutz and Land O’ Lakes. History book sheds light on pioneer lifeBy Eugenio Torrens etorrens@cnewspubs.com Eric Stewart will tell you he isn’t an optimist. “I’m not a pessimist. I’m an opportunist,” he said. “I am just taking the opportunity and I’m going to try it. If it fails, it fails, and if it succeeds, it succeeds.” Stewart, who has worked at GreenDreams since 2011, is attempting to make a documentary detailing green businesses in the Tampa area. Before he worked at GreenDreams, Stewart worked as a server at a restaurant in Odessa. In his off time, he was doing community work with his website, CodeGreen Community, and he volunteered at West Pasco Habitat for Humanity. Since 2008, he has been making YouTube videos of civic meetings, city council meetings, community garden events and organic farms. As he put it, he was just trying to find out about the community. “I was a little distressed,” Stewart said. “I didn’t know if there were other people that were thinking the way I was thinking. I was looking and finding people that were of the same mind as me. “Out of that came this idea of the documentary, because I wanted to make a feature-length documentary about what I had been witnessing and seen over the past four years and have a community that’s developed new ideas,” he added. For the past four years, Stewart has been learning about editing, audio and lighting for this potential documentary. “I’m an amateur, yeah,” he said with a laugh. Despite the knowledge Stewart was getting, he could do little to put it to use. “I’d never had the capital. I was working as a server, so I bootstrapped my website. I paid for it out of my tips. Getting a new camera for a couple hundred dollars was a big expense for me,” he said. Despite Stewart’s attempts via YouTube to get out the word that there are green jobs and businesses shifting away from fossil fuels, he wasn’t sure a YouTube video was long enough to get the job done.

There are fewer than 40 aardvarks in zoos in North America. They are solitary by nature, and aardvark births are not common. (Photos by Matt Marriott/Busch Gardens Tampa Bay)By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will unveil its proposals for widening the Veterans Expressway at a public meeting on April 10. FDOT will be expanding the toll road between Memorial and Gunn highways during the next five years.Department project manager Paul Naranjo said they have some proposals that will be presented at the meeting,which is at the Perrone Recreation Center,5120 Kelly Road in Tampa,starting at 5 p.m. "It's going to be conducted as an informal open house,"Naranjo said."We're going to have maps,and other relevant information available for the public to see." Representatives from the Florida Turnpike will be there to answer questions and address concerns about the project. All the proposals will widen the Veterans from four to eight lanes while resurfacing the existing roadway and adding sound barrier walls to reduce noise in the communities along the highway.The tollbooths will also be converted from cash collection stations to ones that either deduct money from a SunPass account or send drivers a monthly bill for their use of the highway. It is the first time the Veterans is being widened since it was opened 1998.FDOT has allocated $231.85 million to complete the job,which includes construction,land purchases,design/engineering and addressing environmental concerns.The major roadwork is scheduled to begin in 2015. The daily traffic along the construction zone is between 51,000 and 63,000. Naranjo said that total has been increasing steadily during the last few years,making the widening project necessary. Naranjo added FDOT has plans to expand the Veterans to the Van Dyke Road exit,its northern terminus,as well as the Suncoast Parkway through Pasco County, but neither project has a set timetable or significant funding.

PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIOfor women813.909.493924140 SR 54, Suite 103 Lutz, FL 33559 Samantha TaylorPersonal Trainer & Weight Loss Expert How she went from a size 12 to a 6 "On July 30th 2011, I was physically and emotionally out of shape. After having my third child, I had little to no time to take care of myself nor did I have the desire to exercise or eat healthy. I was really down and depressed, always exhausted, and having to rely on caffeine for energy. I was also spiritually starved since I had no energy to get up in the morning and have a quiet time with God. The mirror was my worst enemy, but in reality, it turned out to be my best friend in disguise. I was so discouraged to see my reflection in the mirror I did not feel beautiful but that same reflection and the lack of clothes that I could fit into were my motivation to email Samantha and become a client. Just one month after I began the training, I was another person upbeat, lots of energy, more patient with my kids, and in a better mood. I did not realize until then, that previously I had been angry most of the time. Prayer became a key element in my daily life. I would watch Samantha's DVD's on a daily basis which are loaded with information, encouragement and hope. I had worked my way up to 45 minutes on my Elliptical machine instead of just 15 minutes at the beginning of my training. After my 6 months of training, I feel great, beautiful, energetic and secure. I went from a size 12 to a 6. I lost 20 pounds and 43 inches. I have found freedom in the fact that I don't have to punish myself for eating a treat, I can just start fresh the next mealnot next Monday! What has helped me the most is the accountability and encouragement offered at Pure Health Studios. I could not have done it without the support given to me by the wonderful ladies at Pure Health & Fitness Studios."CALL NOW FOR YOUR BODY TRANSFORMATION ANALYSIS In a private studio for women in Lutz CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4, 2012 5 8534 N.

The program, which started in 2003 and currently serves residents in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, matches parents and their children from the same school together to form carpools. Today 1,200 families participate. “The School Pool program is one of our most successful initiatives and it is absolutely free to schools and parents who want to participate,’’ said TBARTA executive director Bob Clifford. “We have agreements with schools in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties but would like to expand the program to schools in all seven TBARTA counties.’’ Walker Middle Magnet in Odessa has 36 families that use the program. Cassie Schroeder, who helps organize the carpools for Walker, said they began offering the program when the school became a magnet school this school year. “We have kids zoned for our school, but because we’re a magnet program kids from outside the school boundary can come here too,” Schroeder said. “There’s transportation offered with buses for those kids, but sometimes it’s just easier to have a carpool.” TBARTA spokeswoman Amy Ellis said the program was created as part of the authority’s overall goal of reducing traffic congestion in its seven-county region. She added parents who participate in the program save money on gas, as well as wear and tear on their vehicles. Fewer cars around schools also improves air quality. Ellis said TBARTA has applied for a grant to eventually offer online registration for the carpooling program while also finding groups for children who bicycle or walk to school. More information on the School Pool program, as well as other TBARTA services, is available at www.tampabayrideshare.org. Principals or parent-teacher organizations that are interested in starting a carpool should call (800) 998-7433.

Whos whoDilip J. Mathew MD, a cardiologist has been practicing cardiac electrophysiology for the last ten years. Dr. Mathew is involved in all aspects of managing cardiac arrhythmias. Respectively, he received training in cardiology at Brigham and Womens Hospital at Harvard Boston and in cardiac electrophysiology at Lahey Clinic, Massachusetts. He performs implantation of pacemakers, and defibrillators, as well as electrophysiological studies and ablations.He has a special interest in lead extraction and ablation therapies for atrial fibrillation. Over the last 10 years, he has successfully performed nearly 2000 of these complex ablations. He also performs lead extraction of chronic pacemaker and defibrillator leads and is among the few cardiac electrophysiologists in Florida credentialed to perform these high-risk procedures. While making a profound impression on Florida Medical Clinic, Dr. Mathew has volunteered for the non-profit organization Project Pacer, performing implants on indigent patients in India. In his spare time, Dr. Mathew enjoys spending time with family, filmmaking, literature and reading fictional books. Dr. Mathew is located at: 15303 Amberly Drive #A € Tampa, FL 33647 € 813.386.3333www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Electric Hearts MeetDr. Mathew By:Erica Collura It doesnt take a bionic heart to generate electricity in the human body, and it doesnt take supernatural powers either.The human heart is an electrical system of its own. Dilip J.Mathew,MD,FACC,FHRS, specializes in cardiac electrophysiology. Electrophysiologists are cardiologists who have additional education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms.Cardiac Electrophysiologists could also be considered heart electricians.Every time a heart beats it has certain rhythms,ŽDr.Mathew said.Electrophysiologists treat abnormal rhythms.ŽAbnormal rhythms can range anything from very slow heart rates to very fast heart rates.Types of heart rhythm disorders could include:bradycardia,tachycardia,premature heartbeats and atrial fibrillation. Bradycardia describes a heartbeat that beats too slowly,less than 60 beats a minute.Slow heart rates can be the result of certain medications,congenital heart disease,or the degenerative processes of aging. As opposed to bradycardia,tachycardia is a too-rapid heartbeat.If a patients heart rate is faster than 100,than he or she could be diagnosed with tachycardia.Most of the time these disorders can be controlled by medication,ŽDr.Mathew said.Otherwise,invasive procedures such as ablation may be necessary.Ž Heartbeats that are premature will feel as though the heart has skipped a beat.This type of disorder isn't usually serious,Ž Dr.Mathew said.It just needs to be monitored to make certain the condition does not worsen.Ž Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal rhythm in which the chaotic,irregular heartbeat causes a sensation of fluttering in the chest .This occurs when the upper chambers of the heart beat rapidly Dr.Mathew recommends living a healthy life-style. Exercising regularly and maintaining a low-fat diet with plenty of fruits,vegetables and other vitamin-rich foods lay the foundation for a heart-healthy diet. In addition to making the proper lifestyle choices,avoiding tobacco is very important.Smoking contributes to as much as one-third of all cardiovascular diseases.Working together forThe Laker / Lutz News& Fortunately for cardiac electrophysiologists, medical technology has advanced and found a way to shrink a standard size defibrillator into a very small computer-programmed device called an implantable cardioverterdefibrillator, also known as an ICD. "An ICD is slightly bigger than a pacemaker. If it detects dangerous heart rhythms, it sends an electrical shock to a patient's heart. It works just like a portable ambulance," said Dr. Mathew. The device requires surgery to implant it in the chest. "Although the surgery is invasive, we do not have to open the chest up," he said. "We create subcutaneous pockets in a patient's chest, which enables us to connect wires to the heart that are threaded through veins in the chest." The ICD is a relatively new technology. This device made its debut in the 80's and has been saving lives since. In such a short time, the technology has transformed into a smaller more innovative material, meaning it makes surgery and post op more comfortable. Dr. Mathew's experience with defibrillators helps provide a healthy stress-free lifestyle.Medical Spotlight Ask the Doctor What is Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmic disorder. In atrial fibrillation, disorganized electrical pulses that originate in the heart's upper chambers cause the rhythm of the lower chambers to be fast and irregular. Because contractions are not coordinated as in a normal heartbeat; the heart does not pump blood effectively to the rest of the body. What are symptoms? Anormal heart beats about 60100 times a minute. Apatient with atrial fibrillation disorder will have a heart rate of about 200250 beats per minute. Common symptoms are palpitations and shortness of breath while others can be vague including: lightheadedness, fatigue and lack of energy. How is it diagnosed? Atrial fibrillation is diagnosed by an electrocardiogram (EKG)a simple, painless test that records the heart's electrical activity. Stroke and heart failure are the two most common complications of atrial fibrillation. How is it treated? Oftentimes, atrial fibrillation can be controlled by medications that slow the heart rate (B blockers) or maintain the normal heart rhythm (anti-arrhythmics). Patients may also need anticoagulants (blood thinners) which prevents blood clot formation and reduces the risk of having a stroke. If medications do not tame the condition, invasive procedures such as ablation using percutaneous catheters may be required.GOOD HEALTHIMPLANTABLE CARDIOVERTER DEFIBRILLATOR (ICD) 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com CO MM UNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS Apr i l 4, 2012 6 Send bus i ness news to bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m CAPO JOINS FLORIDA CANCER AFFILIATESFlorida Cancer Affiliates, a newly formed community-based medical oncology and hematology practice, has appointed Mary Capo special projects coordinator.

northern Hillsborough and southern Pasco counties came by their names. "Lutz got its name from two brothers, William and Charles Lutz.The two had connections with two railroads that met and joined at Lutz Junction,"the book says. "William was a train engineer for the Tampa Northern Railroad that ran north and south through the North Tampa Land Company's development. "Charles built a railroad line that ran west of the station to Odessa to transport lumber from his sawmill there.That was part of the Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad." Land O'Lakes was named much later. "In 1949,the residents of the communities a few miles north of Lutz Nowatney, Myrtle,Denham,Drexel,Ehren,Godwin, Greenfield,Tucker,Diston and Loyce came together to form Land O'Lakes,"the book relates. The book also maps the history of buildings and commerce locally.The Lutz map identifies 123 sites,including cemeteries, churches,restaurants,grocery stores,a barbershop,a bandstand,a post office and a lumber mill.The Land O'Lakes map identifies 102 sites,including a log cabin, restaurants,churches,banks,motels,schools, a funeral home and dairies. People traveled by stagecoach or wagon or on horseback.Later,they drove cars over rutted,sandy roads.A trip to Wesley Chapel was a bit of a haul,recalled Annie Belle Strickland Brock. "We had a wagon and horses.When we'd go to stay for all night with my grandmother,Mama's mother,on the other side of Wesley Chapel,she would take us in the wagon and we'd take lunch." The book is loaded with facts and figures. It notes that the 1927 construction date commonly associated with the Old Lutz School actually referred to the end of its first school year. It also gives the genesis of the Lutz Civic Association,which grew from a nucleus of about 20 people who gathered for a meeting on Nov.16,1943 into an organization that has shaped community life and development. The book chronicles where people worked,what people ate,where they worshipped and how they had fun. "You name it,they did it.From growing, picking,and hauling fruit to making charcoal and moonshine,raising chickens, grinding cane,herding cattle,cutting and hauling crossties,selling ferns and killing gators Lutz-Land O'Lakes pioneers did it all to make ends meet,"the book says. "With much of the area covered in pine trees,lumber and turpentine were boom industries in the late 1800s and early 1900s," the book notes. "Citrus was king for many decades," states a caption,under a photograph of a man standing in a grove."By the 2000s,"the book notes,"there were very few orange groves left in the area.The freeze of 1985 was the final blow to most.Rather than replant,many owners sold their property for commercial purposes,often to developers." The pioneers of Lutz and Land O'Lakes didn't have microwave ovens or fast-food restaurants,but they were resourceful. "If you're hungry enough,you'll eat just about anything,"the book says."The pioneers did just that.Possums,rabbits,coons, turkeys,dove,quail,soft-shell turtles,wild hogs even sand hill cranes landed on many a table as the meat of the day." Beef was rare,however,recalled Ted Williams."About the only time we would have beef was when one of Sam Hopson's cows got hit on the road." Fruits and vegetables were a prime source of sustenance. "Wild huckleberries,blackberries,strawberries and guavas were picked to make jams and jellies or used in fruit cobblers. "Vegetables collard greens,turnips,potatoes,cucumbers,peas,beans,corn, tomatoes,carrots were homegrown,"the book notes. At the end of the workweek,families were ready to worship and socialize. "The faith communities in Lutz-Land O' Lakes have been strong since the first churches were founded in the early 1910s," the book notes. "Going to church gave neighbors a chance to see each other and be informed about marriages,births,deaths,and illnesses, as well as be uplifted spiritually,"the book says. Recreation was simple.Picnics,dances, softball and swimming were among the mainstays.Old-fashioned fun ruled the day. The most popular events at the original Fourth of July celebration in Lutz in 1947, were climbing the greased pole and catching the greased pig,the book says. The book's photographs show change, with images of buildings that no longer exist,of churches that have moved and of people posing in groves or at picnics. MacManus said her efforts were a tribute to her mother's quest to preserve local history. While she is not planning another local history,she hopes other communities will be encouraged to write their own. "They think they have to be professional,"she said,but they shouldn't feel intimidated. "All it takes is a little organization and somebody to put it together." Pioneer MemoriesRecollections from "Going, Going Almost Gone:LutzLand O'Lakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories"by Elizabeth Riegler MacManus and Susan A.MacManus.Willie Haug: "I was 10 years old when I started comin' out there and on Saturday evenings,there were two brothers that had the sawmill over here at Ehren,Lutz brothers Charles and William Lutz.William Lutz associated mainly with the old folks,and Charles Lutz,or Charlie Lutz,as they called him, came over to the little store and every kid that was in there,he would buy a piece o' candy,chewing gum,ice cream or a cold drink.Each one of them got somethin' every Saturday night. "Charlie was about 5'6" or 5'7," weighed about 160,165 pounds and he dressed like one of these plantation owners from South and Central America real light or white suit,white shoes,Panama hat,such as that. "William was quite reserved,he wore dark suits,shoes and hat all the time, whether it'd be grey,dark grey,or black or blue."But Lutz was named after those two boys way back then." Worth Johnson: "Bill Hood and I cleared several acres of land around there grubbed palmettos out of it with a grubbin' hoe to make some extra money.I made the money for my first pair of long pants delivering four-feet cord wood in the boxcars down there at Stemper.Fifteen years old.Went to town,down there at the corner of Lafayette and Franklin Street to Giddens Dry Goods Store,bought my first pair of long pants." George Riegler: "We'd frequently go to town with six or seven hundred pounds of cabbage,couple of hundred pounds of potatoes and rutabagas,carrots,turnips you name it,there's just barely enough room for Grandpa, Grandma and the kids stuck in,and all of the rest of the touring car was vegetables;back bumper,front bumper,fenders, parking lights,running boards,door handles,burlap bags,hung on it across the engine " Jimmy Marsh: "The big day for me is when I'd eat lunch with my dad at the depot.He'd get a can of potted meat, and a can of Vienna sausage,and a sleeve of Nabisco saltines,and a cold drink. We'd share a cold drink."813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 10 "Going,Going Almost Gone:Lutz-Land O'Lakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories,"retails for $65,but three local shops are selling it for $50.Co-author Susan MacManus wrote the book with her mother,Elizabeth Riegler MacManus,who died in 2008.MacManus is using some of the money left by her mother to subsidize the book so more readers can enjoy it. Emma Lou Harvey,of Harvey's Hardware in Land O'Lakes,said book sales are brisk: "We had a lady call who no longer lives in the area and she bought seven books.She was buying them for different members of the family." Tana Brackins,owner of Beck Gallery in Lutz,said the book is a hit:"Everyone loves it especially people who have been out here a long time." The books are available at $50 at these locations:Harvey's Hardware, 5400 Land O' Lakes Blvd. The Beck Gallery, 1720 Land O' Lakes Blvd. Lutz Ace Hardware, 18469 N. US 41Local shops offer book at special price This gathering of the North Tampa Fruit and Vegetable Association on May 11, 1912, was held at Feinsinger's grove. (Photographs courtesy of Susan A. MacManus) Awhite picket fence graces the yard of O.H. and Cora Woodward. The house sat at SR 54 and US 41, now a busy intersection in Land O'Lakes. First Lutz United Brethren Church was built in 1914. Before that church members met at Lutz School. Volunteers gather in 1911 to clear land for the Lutz Cemetery. Citrus was king for decades. George Corliss stands by a tree just beginning to bear fruit, circa 1920.HISTORY,from page 1

As a foster animal,Matt's options ordinarily might be limited.But Matt is a ward of Greyhound Rescue and Adoptions of Tampa Bay,or GREAT,which turned to East-West Animal Hospital for help.There,Matt has been getting acupuncture treatment from veterinarian Linda Register.With this alternative treatment,Matt found relief. "Sometimes it's the only option if conventional medicine has failed or is not giving relief or improvement,or if the side effects of conventional medicine are an issue,"Register said. Register said acupuncture is still uncommon but not rare.Although acupuncture courses were not offered when she attended college,Register followed her curiosity about the procedure to the Chi Institute in Reddick.There,she trained and became certified,and began offering the procedure at East-West. Register finds many pet owners,particularly those whose pets have intractable health issues,are open to trying acupuncture even though it costs more than conventional treatments and can be timeconsuming.The health history Register takes is five pages long and the procedure is generally about an hour.The therapy also is not just about needles,Register said. Acupuncture treatment includes food therapy,herbs,Chinese massage,mild chiropractic,and eliminating environmental stressors. Acupuncture originated in ancient China,where practitioners discovered 361 points in humans and 173 in animals that could be stimulated with needles to therapeutic effect.The horseracing industry, which restricts medication,introduced acupuncture to U.S.veterinary circles. The procedure works well with neurologic and anxiety disorders,Register said. "For example,chronic circling.We had a dog that circled 100 times before he would urinate,"Register said."With one treatment, he circled less." Register also has used acupuncture to reduce seizures in a Schnauzer and to treat limping and weakness in greyhounds,like Matt.Treatments generally are weekly in the beginning and become monthly,like the Schnauzer with seizures and Matt. There is no guarantee it will work, Register cautions.She has seen results that run from remarkable improvement to no improvement. Liz Lynch,Matt's original foster mom,said she saw definite drops in Matt's stiffness and pain,and DePietto said the improvements have continued since she began fostering Matt in January. "He is a sweet,sweet dog,"DePietto said. "I'm going to have to be particular about who takes this boy."Pets find relief in acupuncture treatments Veterinarian Linda Register begins an acupuncture treatment on Matt the greyhound as foster mom Liz Lynch looks on. Matt gets ready for an acupuncture treatment. (Photos by Cindy Spence) About MattMatt regularly attends greyhound adoption events at the Petco in Odessa.He is 10 old for a greyhound and has quite a history.He was tattooed for competition,but then rejected for racing.He was adopted at 2,but at 9 1/2 his owner became terminally ill and gave him up.

HEALTH & WELLNESS "So I figured a documentary,a good twohour documentary,would be something that you could put all those pieces together and it could be spread virally throughout Tampa Bay,so that we could really witness that there really are jobs being created and that we can have this whole other direction that we could be going,"Stewart said. Stewart actually doesn't consider himself a "green"person.Through his interest in the oil market and thanks to some biology and chemistry courses,Stewart realized how inefficiently resources were being used. "I was witnessing that we weren't very efficient with our resources.We were wasting them in an unconscious way.I don't even want to consider myself green,I want to consider myself more conscious of what I'm doing and more conscious of the energy and the matter that I'm using,"he said. Since Stewart is still working fulltime, this project is coming out on his own time. He is hoping to raise enough money through a website that online users can donate to until May 2.The financial goal of $18,000 isn't enough for Stewart to work on the documentary fulltime.He said a portion of the money would go to the website,as well as monthly and annual website and domain fees;as well as going toward buying higher-end equipment to bolster the quality of the product.Stewart still hasn't really ironed out all the kinks,saying he prefers not to plan too far ahead.But one thing is clear:whether or not the documentary pans out,Stewart is keen on getting his word out. "What we need is an economy that's based on ethics ethics for caring for the earth,and caring for people and sharing the abundance,fair share.I feel that has not been established and I'd like to help show people how it could be. "Having a community that's growing and thriving is better than having a community that's falling apart,"Stewart said. GREEN,from page 1 Follow us on facebook www.facebook.com/thelakerlutznews

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) was recently honored as one of 17 agencies nationwide as having the highest possible security methods. "For HART,it means our plans and procedures are up to par with best practices, and we will continue finetuning our collaboration with law enforcement and emergency responders,"said Michael Stephens,who oversees HART's safety and security."HART is a valuable resource for law enforcement investigations and during an emergency,and we are ready to respond when needed." HART received Gold Standard designation from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).Transit authorities volunteer for a comprehensive review of its systems to identify vulnerabilities and assess progress in areas like planning,training, background checks and public outreach. Stephens said HART has been able to enhance its security and emergency management by "building strong partnerships with local law enforcement and emergency response agencies."He added they have boosted training for drivers,transportation supervisors and maintenance employees to increase their awareness to suspicious activities. HART's increase in security started in earnest during 2002 when it used federal money to create an extensive surveillance system.It now has cameras on all of its buses and streetcars along with its buildings.Stephens said the cameras help enforce ridership rules while increasing the chance crimes are recorded to help law enforcement catch lawbreakers. The recognition comes at a time when HART's ridership is at an all-time high. HART saw an increase of 10 percent in the number of people using its buses in 2011,up to 13.7 million.Just fewer than 50 million have boarded the authority's buses, vans and streetcars since 2008. HART was one of only two transit authorities based in Florida to earn the honor along with the Pinellas Suncoast Transit District. "I commend these organizations for their commitment and hard work that this level of achievement requires,"said TSA administrator John Pistole."TSA recognizes the continued dedication individual transit agencies demonstrate every day to ensure the safety of travelers nationwide."

(Photo provided) What’s ailing my azaleas?By BJ Jarvis Pasco Extens i on Hort i cultur i st and D i rector After azalea shrubs bloom, it is time to prune excess vegetation. While pruning, you may find that leaves are spotted or have a whitish cast to them. The culprit is likely the azalea lace bug. You may have noticed -anytime there’s a bug named for the plant, there’s a good chance infestations are common. Check under the leaves for round black specks. This isn’t the actual bug, but rather its excrement, or an egg-case which its momma cemented to the leaf with a molasses-like mixture. Specks are often easier to see than the small, nearly translucent insect. What kind of damage do lace bugs cause? Once hatched, the juveniles spend the day on the lower leaf surface systematically sucking the sap. In addition to azaleas, the azalea lace bug also enjoys hanging on other shrubs and trees, including lantana, hawthorn, oaks and sycamore. Lace bugs are the key reason sycamores drop their leaves quite early in the fall. Vigilant gardeners may be able to keep lace bug populations down on smaller plants by shooting a strong jet of water from a garden hose on the succulent new leaves. Do this in early spring when young are hatching. While this may not be practical on tall sycamore trees, gardeners can maintain good control on smaller plants such as azaleas. If the pests get ahead of you and stronger measures are needed, horticultural soaps or Neem Oil also works effectively. Apply at one-week intervals in the spring until control is achieved. For more information about azaleas and their pests, check out the University of Florida’s Extension website at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_azalea. Also contact Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474 with gardening questions. –BJ Jarvis is the Director of Pasco Cooperative Extension a part of the University of Florida/IFAS and Pasco County government.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Jeff OdomThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentThe Steinbrenner baseball team may have gotten off to a shaky start this season, but its players are intent on making sure it doesn't end that way. The Warriors (11-6) lost three of their first four games,but under the direction of third-year coach John Crumbley things brightened quickly. Senior pitcher Chris Williams (4-0,1.93 ERA) said the squad quickly realized it needed to play as a team. "It was tough at first because we weren't really used to losing;it's not how we're built,"said Williams,a St.Leo University signee."We just came together and were just like Hey,maybe we're not as good as we think we are,and we need to start playing as a team instead of a bunch of individuals.'I think we've done that."Crumbley said his focus at the start of the season was to get his players experience, which contributed to the early struggles."I just think we were playing people early and trying to give people opportunities to succeed,and it just took us a little while to get to the flow of what we're going to stick with,"Crumbley said."I think now we're doing the little things better,and people have settled into their roles." Steinbrenner lost a few of its playmakers last year including three who signed to play in college.However,a new crop of players have filled the void such as first-year varsity pitcher Cole Gordon (5-1,0.72 ERA) and senior left fielder Sammy May,who hadn't made a start until this season. "It's been fun finally getting an opportunity to play,"said May,who is hitting .346. "Every day at practice I've been working on my swing and hitting off the tee.I'm just staying focused and not goofing around." The Warriors are currently seeded No.1 in Class 7A-District 9,scoring district wins over Freedom (12-4),Wiregrass Ranch (13-4) and Gaither (10-7).Crumbley said his team has to play consistently to stay on top. "We've set ourselves up pretty well," Crumbley said."As far as district seeding goes,the destiny is in our court.Getting the No.1 seed is what we're striving toward. We've never had that in our existence in three years,so basically we're looking at trying to secure that." Williams added playing tough district games has made the squad stronger."We're facing a little bit better pitching (in the new district),"Williams said."So in the beginning it was a little struggle,but now since we've gotten used to it we're doing our jobs and that's why we're continuing to keep winning."If Steinbrenner makes it out of the district tournament,it will be the first trip to the playoffs for the third-year program. Crumbley said that's the collective goal. "We want to get to those postseasons and try and see how far you can go," Crumbley said."And as a coach that's how you're measured,so we're looking for hopefully an opportunity to do that this year." The Warriors played a makeup game against Brandon on April 2,but results were not available by press time. Steinbrenner hosts Freedom on April 5 at 7 p.m.Gaither hosts the 7A-9 tournament, with the championship on Thursday,April 26 at 7 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither baseball team has one of the most successful traditions in Hillsborough County. The Cowboys (10-7) have averaged more than 19 wins the last six years and have made the playoffs every season since 2005, a campaign that included a trip to the Class 6A state finals. "I like our team,and I told them at the beginning of the year Why not us?,'"said Frank Permuy,the only coach the program's 27-year history."We're just as good as anyone,and it's not because we don't work.We have guys who're capable of playing in the state tournament.We're as good as we were in 2005." Senior designated hitter (DH),outfielder and pitcher Matt Frey also sees something special. "I think we could be in the final four," Frey said."We have a lot of potential.There's so much talent on this team and we have 14 seniors who have basically grown up playing together." Part of that belief comes from Gaither losing only three seniors,but two were pitchers Robert Johnson and Zach Jackson who had a combined 12-3 record in 92.1 innings. "That's hard to replace,"Permuy said."We got Alex Milne back,who had an off year last year and is doing alright.Evan Gainey came out of nowhere,and he's become a pretty good pitcher." Gainey is 4-3 with a 1.46 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 48 innings. "We have some depth,"said Gainey. "Starting wise we could be a little more consistent throwing strikes,but I think we have great potential." Milne,a University of Central Florida signee,is in his fourth year in the starting rotation.He is 2-2 with a 2.75 ERA.Frey (2-1) has helped the rotation after only playing DH a year ago while recovering from left shoulder surgery. Frey has also been a force in the lineup, hitting .405 with 11 RBI after batting .317 with 11 RBI last year. "I feel more comfortable in the box,"Frey said."Sometimes I feel it in the arm,but when it's good I feel really good." Frey's increased batting average is part of an overall change for Gaither.The squad hit .294 in 2011,which has risen to .319 this year with a .414 on-base percentage.Seven Cowboys with at least 25 at bats are hitting better than .275. "It really speaks volumes of our coaching staff preaching about the approach we need at the plate,"said senior outfielder Hayden Kelley,who is hitting .370."That's the biggest thing that has helped me this year.Just going up to the plate and knowing what you want to do.Is it to get a guy over or in and what do you have to do to accomplish that.Even if you are out be a productive out." Junior shortstop Oscar Mercado,a Florida State University commit,has led the way at the plate,hitting.417.He also has 19 RBI and eight steals while shining as the infield's leader. "We had a young infield coming in,"said Mercado,who is in his third year starting. "Our first baseman was starting for the first time on varsity.Our starting second baseman broke his jaw,so we had to go with a young backup,and our third baseman is starting for the first time.I felt like I had to show them how to do things." Gaither is in Class 7A-District 9,which includes Chamberlain,Freedom,Steinbrenner and Wiregrass Ranch.Only the Chiefs are below .500,making the race for the No.1 seed and a first round bye in the district tournament hotly contested.

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Freedom baseball team suffered a major loss on March 18,but it wasn't in a game. Patriots sophomore pitcher Taylor King lost his 50-year-old father,David,on that date;the final day of spring break.His teammates learned of his devastating loss the next day at school. "That was a rough week for us,"said third-year Freedom coach A.J.Leppla."We had a big tragedy losing somebody in the family,but we're looking to build together through that adversity. Before the year I told the team about a friend from college whose 2-yearold daughter past away from cancer,and our guys have kept her on their mind.Then this hit a little closer to home for them.They've talked about playing for something bigger than themselves." The Patriots (12-4) are wearing David's initials DK stitched onto their hats and also spray paint those letters behind home plate and on the pitcher's mound for home games.Leppla said they want to make the playoffs for the first time in the program's nine-year history to honor David's memory. Freedom had difficulty playing its first game after learning of the death,falling 11-1 against Class 7A-District 9 rival Steinbrenner on March 20. "There was a lot going on with the team when we played that game,"said senior catcher Eric Schindler."We played about as bad as we have all year." The Patriots pulled together quickly and responded with a 9-5 win against district opponent Gaither on March 24. "We came together nicely and played like we can,"Leppla said."Mr.King would have been proud." Junior second baseman/pitcher Chandler Chapman,who was recently named to the Perfect Game USA All-American team as an honorable mention,said the win over Gaither shows how far the squad has come "We would have never done that last year,"Chapman said. Freedom,which is still looking for its first winning season,is off to the best start in program history and has added reason to finally make the postseason,but nothing will come easy in 7A-9.Four of the five teams in the district have a winning record. "We're excited,but we're keeping a level head about it,"said pitcher/shortstop Kyle Schindler,Eric's twin brother."We don't want to get too excited because we haven't done anything yet.It doesn't matter what we do now.It matters what we do in districts." Junior third baseman/pitcher Johnny Keigher said the tough district is making the team play its best every night. "Having a very difficult league makes us have to step up our game,"Keigher said."We know we have to play really well to make it.It makes our game that much better." Keigher transferred this season from Jesuit, which finished as the 4A state runner-up last year.He said the postseason is a constant topic of discussion. "We talk about it all the time,"Keigher said. "It's basically our main goal to make the playoffs.We want to make sure we get there." Leppla,who came to the Patriots three years ago from Wiregrass Ranch,said he knew the team would have strong pitching and solid defense,which gave him confidence they could compete. "Pitching and defense wins championships,"Leppla said."Look at what the Rays did last year.I mean they just found a way to win with pitching and defense,and that's what we do.I knew we wouldn't be great offensively,but it's been the timely hitting that's helped us." Leppla said the hitting has started to come around lately. "But it's going to have to keep getting better,"Leppla said."We need to make sure we're getting timely hits to support our pitchers."

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 18 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comWiregrass Ranch girls and Land O'Lakes boys have dominated the area track and field scene this year and both kept winning at the Sunshine Athletic Conference (SAC) meet on March 29. It is the fourth straight title for the Bulls in their six-year history,while the Gators picked up their first SAC crown ever. "We have great athletes,"said first-year Land O'Lakes boys track coach Bill Schmitz. "All year we had strength across the board. Most of the time we were able to score in all 17 events,and we did that again today." The Gators ran away with the team title with 159.5 points,besting second place Anclote by 52.5.The defending SAC champs Wiregrass Ranch finished third and Sunlake took fifth.Schmitz,an assistant on the Land O'Lakes football team,talked several athletes into joining track this year including Shadow Williams,Jackson Cannon and Nico Watts from football and Josh Davis from soccer. Cannon won the discus with a throw of 141 feet 10.50 inches.The Gators also got conference titles from pole vaulter Ian McKenzie,the 4x400-meter relay and a pair of titles from senior Darin Patmon in the 110 (15.49 seconds) and 300 (41.94) hurdles.Patmon has run track since his freshman year,but these are his first conference titles. "In the 100 the kid was right with me the whole way,so I knew I had to keep pushing,"Patmon said."I wanted this." There was tough competition in the sprint events between Sunlake's Eddie Burgos and Wiregrass Ranch's Jamel Nu–ez. Burgos beat Nu–ez in the 100.The two rematched as the anchors of their squads' 4x100 relays,where Burgos crossed inWiregrass Ranch girls,Land O'Lakes boys win SAC titlesContinued on page21 Wiregrass Ranch junior Nikita Shah won conference championships in the 1,600 and 3,200.

Egg rolling on the Capitol grounds continued until 1878 when Congress decided there had been too much damage to the grounds and passed a law against it.

Wesley Chapel won three conference titles,one from high jumper Courtney Prengaman (5-06) and two from Ravin Gilbert in the 100 (12.22) and 200 (25.90). "Now I can say I'm conference champ in the 100 for the first time,"Gilbert said."This is something I've never experienced before. Finally I got this title." Gilbert also placed second in the 400 behind Land O'Lakes'Hallie Grimes (59.60)."I just pushed as hard as I could on the last 100 because I could hear footsteps right behind me,"Grimes said.She then added,"I had to get prepared mentally before the race because I know who I'm going up against."Freshman Jhade Hayes captured the only title for Sunlake in the discus throw (10508.75)."I was just trying to throw at least 100," Hayes said."I have a bad blister.I thought that would hurt me more,but I got through it."The next challenges for area track and field athletes are the district meets. The Bulls girls will attempt to claim their fourth straight district championship at the Class 3A-District 6 meet on April 20 starting at noon.The Gators boys are looking for their first district title since 2007 and third overall at the same meet. Wiregrass Ranch junior Hannah Eder took first in the triple jump before finishing as the SAC runner up in the long jump.44.34;one hundredth of a second faster than Nu–ez. "I seen Jamel right behind,and he's been up there with me this whole year,"Burgos said."I've just been hoping to get him one time." Nu–ez came back and bested Burgos in the 200 by posting a 23.07. "I felt like I had to give it my all,"Nu–ez said."Eddie Burgos beat me in the 100 and the 4x100,so I had to get my revenge." Sunlake's Travis Manecke won his second straight shot put conference title (45-09.50).The junior, who attended Wiregrass Ranch last year,scratched on his first and third attempts,but his one good throw was enough. "During practice I was throwing really bad,so I tried to just put that out of my mind,"Manecke said."I didn't throw very well today.I want to throw in the 50s." The Bulls girls also had a comfortable winning margin,scoring 137 to beat Mitchell by 39.5.Wesley Chapel placed fourth,while Land O'Lakes and Sunlake finished ninth and 10th,respectively.Don Howard has been Wiregrass Ranch's girls coach the last three years.His squads have known nothing but conference gold,but Howard didn't sleep easy the night before."I woke up this morning at 5 with a nervous stomach,"Howard said. The Bulls lost six seniors from last year's team.Howard said it meant a lot to win a conference crown after losing a number of top athletes. "I think we've created a program that good athletes want to be a part of,"Howard said."Then it becomes easy as a coach." Wiregrass Ranch's first individual title came from Hannah Eder,who set a personal best with a triple jump of 34-10.75."Last year at conference I didn't do very well,"Eder said."I think the nerves got to me, but this year I just felt really positive. In practice I'd hit 34,so that's what I was expecting but I was able to completely shatter that."Eder gave credit to first-year jumping coach Adorius Payne for getting her into top form.The Bulls also got field championships from Patricia Magwood (36-00) in the shot put and Alisha Henry (10-06) in the pole vault.Wiregrass Ranch scored big in the distance events thanks in large part to Nikita Shah wining the 1,600 (5:15.80) and 3,200 (11:17.06).Shah said her goal is to medal at states in both. "I'm really grateful for the success this season I'm having,"Shah said."I'm happy to be staying healthy.All I can do is try my hardest.I'm confident in my training,and this just backs that up." Elise Cedre won the 800 for the Bulls in 2:29.07.The squad also won the 4x400 and 4x100 in 4:16.92 and 50.90,respectively. A.J.Blount ran the final leg of the 4x100 less than eight months after suffering a torn ACL in her right knee while playing soccer. "I'm pretty tired working to get back in shape,"Blount said."Coming here and winning this race with my teammates feels pretty good,but I'm exhausted."The fact that I got my speed back is a plus because I was really scared that it wasn't going to happen,"Blount continued."I give all my props to our athletic trainer Jen Stollery. Without her I wouldn't have gotten back."Continued from page 18 Wiregrass Ranch senior Jamel Nu–ez, left, and Sunlake junior Eddie Burgos pushed each other in the sprint events.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 23 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLesley Graham scans the field one afternoon watching her team warm up before practice,and in her head is a vision of what the program may some day become. Graham is the coach of the inaugural Saint Leo University women's lacrosse team. She spends much of her time watching the Lions (4-7) work on passes,take faceoffs and fight for ground balls. Many of Graham's players grew up with the sport,while others are new to the game, but all are in search of the same goal making SLU into a perennial powerhouse. "To be a part of the growth of the sport that I love;that's a great opportunity," Graham said."It's traditionally a Northeast/Mid-Atlantic game.When you think of lacrosse those are the areas you think of,but it's really great to explore the talent in nontraditional areas.It's nice to give the Florida kids a chance to stay instate and show we do know how to play lacrosse." Two of those locals on the squad are sophomore defender Haley Skipper and freshman midfielder Kasey Tanner,who went to Wesley Chapel High. Tanner played many sports growing up, such as softball,swimming and cheerleading,but nothing stuck until she found lacrosse with the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association in ninth grade."It's a different kind of sport from anything I've seen besides maybe hockey," Tanner said."It just uses a whole different set of skills,and it's really fast paced. I feel really lucky that I get to play so close to home."Skipper tried lacrosse in eighth grade, but put her gear away in favor of high school soccer.She didn't touch the sticks again until college. "I thought it was a good idea to help start something new here,"Skipper said. Graham is one of the few who grew up focusing on lacrosse.She picked up the game in seventh grade,playing four years as a defender at Ithaca College.Her first coaching stint was with the U19 junior national team in Scotland. "I found that I really loved coaching," Graham said."I got my masters in sports administration and was a graduate assistant at Canisius College."Graham coached one season at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia,but when she learned SLU was adding women's lacrosse she jumped at the chance to lead the program. She spent last year recruiting while scouring the university for anyone with athleticism and the drive to learn something new."That was really hard to recruit players to a team that doesn't exist,"Graham said."I was lucky because our senior captain (Kelsey Cunningham) hosted recruits and showed them around to tell them what it's like to be a student here." One of the biggest additions was Stephanie Marran.The sophomore midfielder scored 52 goals and was fourth in Division II nationally in draw controls with 6.2 per contest last year while at Post University in Waterbury,Conn.She was named to the USA College Lacrosse AllAmerican Rookie Team. "I transferred here and I see it as an opportunity to help a new program,"said Marran,who leads the team with 33 goals. Marran plays forward for the Lions soccer team,which went 15-3-1 and finished the year ranked No.23 nationally.She believes the lacrosse program can be as successful."There're a lot of talented girls on this team,"Marran said."I think it'll take a couple years because we don't have very many people yet,but once we get more we'll be good."The journey to the top won't be easy largely because it includes many trips.The Lions are one of three Division II programs in Florida.The squad will play the first few years as an independent,giving Graham the opportunity to schedule tough opponents. "This year we've played No.3 (Limestone College) in the country and No.5 (Rollins College) in the country,"Graham said. "People were asking me why would you do that,'but it's good.You want to be challenged." Tanner sees the squad uniting. "We trust each other on the field,"Tanner said."Also the jitters are gone.The first games we were scared.When we lost to Limestone we played horribly in the first half,but in the second half we came back and tied their score 7-7 through the half.We're capable of so much." SLU secured its first victory on Feb.24 19-2 at Catawba College in North Carolina. "What was nice is we got to play another first-year program," Graham said."It showed us a comparable opponent because they're in the same position we are.We were able to go out and execute our gameplan and play as a team for the full 60 minutes." Marran had three goals and two assists in the win,while Tanner scored her first of the season. "I'm a low shooter,and it was probably the first high shot I've ever made,"Tanner said."That in itself was pretty exciting,but it also made me hungry for more." The Lions lost their next four games after their first win,but rolled off a three-game winning streak after that. SLU hosted Converse College on April 2, but results were not available by press time. The Lions play Newberry College on April 13 before hosting Florida Southern College on April 18 in their regular season finale. Both contests start at 7 p.m.Women's lacrosse comes to Saint LeoPPAL Land O' Lakes Gators signupThe Pasco Police Athletic League (PPAL),a youth football and cheerleading program,is having open registration for the 2012 fall season.There are programs for football players ages 5 to 15 and cheerleaders ages 4 to 15.

Watts had 12 catches for 274 yards and two touchdowns last season while adding 78 yards on six carries and another score.He also played defensive back,where he picked off six passes.Boyles missed a few games due to injury as a senior,but managed five grabs for 56 yards.Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono can be reached at (813) 909-2800 or klojacono@cnewspubs.com.

The squad lost one senior,Kallie Shirling who signed to play at Thomas University. The biggest change comes at the coaching spot,where Jerry English steps in for Jack Shirling,Kallie's father. English coached at Land O'Lakes for 27 years,where he led the Gators to the state finals in 1995 and to three regional finals. "The number of players is the biggest difference,"English said."At Land O'Lakes we had a varsity and junior varsity team.One year at tryouts I had 90 come out." Junior shortstop/pitcher Sydney Boynton said English has a more straightforward approach. "I knew that coach English would go back to basics,which I thought was good because we had some players who could play but the fundamentals were off,"Sydney said."Our coach last year was a really good coach,and he was actually my travel ball coach,and he was more used to coaching at a different level." English said he believes in focusing on fundamentals,especially given the diversity in the talent and experience of his players. "This year what we have is a mixture of very good athletes who play travel ball to players who have never played before," English said."We had three girls learning how to pick up the ball and throw,but they're young and working hard to get better." Those experienced players are also very young. "I've got one senior,Amelia Oliver,and a few juniors,"English said."Most are sophomores and freshmen,and I've got one eighth-grader.Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself how young the players are if they make mistakes.The great thing is they all want to play." The methods seem to be working as the Wildcats have clinched the No.1 seed in the Class 2A-District 4 tournament,which includes a bye to the championship game.The squad twice defeated Hernando Christian,a team that reached the final four last year,to earn the top spot. Evans has led the way offensively,posting a .644 batting average with 31 RBI,10 steals, eight doubles and nine triples while striking out only three times.As a pitcher she has a 5-2 record with a 1.05 ERA and 54 strikeouts. Sydney,who came to the academy as a sophomore from Wharton High,has a 6-2 record with a 2.00 ERA and 61 Ks while hitting .408 with 24 RBI.Her sister Skyler has a .412 batting average with 10 steals. "I feel like we're better,and I know our stats and record are better,"Evans said."I feel like there's more of a team feeling.I feel like we've bonded a little bit more,and it's probably because we're winning." The players are also excited because an old tormentor is no longer in the Wildcats' district or region.Canterbury has beaten the academy all 14 times the squads have played,including four years in a row for the district title. English points out it won't be easy to make a deep playoff run just because Canterbury is somewhat out of the picture. He illustrated that by describing the Wildcats'5-3 loss to Bishop McLaughlin,a team they beat 20-5 earlier this season. "We did things we shouldn't and it cost us,"English said."I told them after that we're through sneaking up on people.We've played well,and now people want to beat us." The 2A-4 tournament is at Hernando Christian.The academy plays the winner of the semifinal between the event host and Lecanto Seven Rivers Christian for the championship on April 19 at 4:30 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coachesSPORTS Academy goes five for five Academy softball coach Jerry English talks with his team before a recent practice.

Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comDuring her lifetime, Elizabeth Riegler MacManus got a thrill from tracking down historical facts, collecting artifacts and gathering old photographs of the people, places and institutions in Lutz and Land O Lakes. Her passion prompted her to co-author, with her daughter Susan A. MacManus, a community history, Citrus, Sawmills, Critters & Crackers: Life in Early Lutz and Central Pasco County, published in 1998. The younger MacManus has now wrapped up the sequel. She and her mother finished most of the legwork for the 690-page companion volume Going, Going ... Almost Gone: Lutz-Land O Lakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories before Elizabeth Riegler MacManus died in 2008. Her mother, blind in her final years, was familiar with the content because friends lovingly read most of it to her before she died. The book traces the history of agriculture and commerce in Lutz and Land O Lakes and contains a treasure trove of more than 1,000 photographs. It also shares recollections from taped oral histories collected by Elizabeth Riegler MacManus. MacManus, a widely known political science professor at the University of South Florida, said the sequel was always intended. The authors wanted to share the personal stories of early residents and publish material left out of the first volume, which prompted people to come forward with photographs and archival documents after crawling into attics or sifting through boxes in garages or closets. MacManus spent hours over the better part of a decade to complete the book. The book contains information from deeds, maps, newspaper clippings, programs and newsletters. It recounts how Lutz and Land O Lakes which straddle US 41 in See HISTORY, page10 Residents gather for Easter sunrise service in 1958 at the Bullard Park band shell. (Images courtesy of Susan A.

History book sheds light on pioneer lifeBy Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comEric Stewart will tell you he isnt an optimist. Im not a pessimist. Im an opportunist, he said. I am just taking the opportunity and Im going to try it. If it fails, it fails, and if it succeeds, it succeeds. Stewart, who has worked at GreenDreams since 2011, is attempting to make a documentary detailing green businesses in the Tampa area. Before he worked at GreenDreams, Stewart worked as a server at a restaurant in Odessa. In his off time, he was doing community work with his website, CodeGreen Community, and he volunteered at West Pasco Habitat for Humanity. Since 2008, he has been making YouTube videos of civic meetings, city council meetings, community garden events and organic farms. As he put it, he was just trying to find out about the community. I was a little distressed, Stewart said. I didnt know if there were other people that were thinking the way I was thinking. I was looking and finding people that were of the same mind as me. Out of that came this idea of the documentary, because I wanted to make a feature-length documentary about what I had been witnessing and seen over the past four years and have a community thats developed new ideas, he added. For the past four years, Stewart has been learning about editing, audio and lighting for this potential documentary. Im an amateur, yeah, he said with a laugh. Despite the knowledge Stewart was getting, he could do little to put it to use. Id never had the capital. I was working as a server, so I bootstrapped my website. I paid for it out of my tips. Getting a new camera for a couple hundred dollars was a big expense for me, he said. Despite Stewarts attempts via YouTube to get out the word that there are green jobs and businesses shifting away from fossil fuels, he wasnt sure a YouTube video was long enough to get the job done.

(Photos by Matt Marriott/Busch Gardens Tampa Bay)By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) will unveil its proposals for widening the Veterans Expressway at a public meeting on April 10. FDOT will be expanding the toll road between Memorial and Gunn highways during the next five years.Department project manager Paul Naranjo said they have some proposals that will be presented at the meeting,which is at the Perrone Recreation Center,5120 Kelly Road in Tampa,starting at 5 p.m. Its going to be conducted as an informal open house,Naranjo said.Were going to have maps,and other relevant information available for the public to see. Representatives from the Florida Turnpike will be there to answer questions and address concerns about the project. All the proposals will widen the Veterans from four to eight lanes while resurfacing the existing roadway and adding sound barrier walls to reduce noise in the communities along the highway.The tollbooths will also be converted from cash collection stations to ones that either deduct money from a SunPass account or send drivers a monthly bill for their use of the highway. It is the first time the Veterans is being widened since it was opened 1998.FDOT has allocated $231.85 million to complete the job,which includes construction,land purchases,design/engineering and addressing environmental concerns.The major roadwork is scheduled to begin in 2015. The daily traffic along the construction zone is between 51,000 and 63,000. Naranjo said that total has been increasing steadily during the last few years,making the widening project necessary. Naranjo added FDOT has plans to expand the Veterans to the Van Dyke Road exit,its northern terminus,as well as the Suncoast Parkway through Pasco County, but neither project has a set timetable or significant funding.

PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIOfor women813.909.493924140 SR 54, Suite 103 Lutz, FL 33559 Samantha TaylorPersonal Trainer & Weight Loss Expert How she went from a size 12 to a 6"On July 30th 2011, I was physically and emotionally out of shape. After having my third child, I had little to no time to take care of myself nor did I have the desire to exercise or eat healthy. I was really down and depressed, always exhausted, and having to rely on caffeine for energy. I was also spiritually starved since I had no energy to get up in the morning and have a quiet time with God. The mirror was my worst enemy, but in reality, it turned out to be my best friend in disguise. I was so discouraged to see my reflection in the mirror I did not feel beautiful but that same reflection and the lack of clothes that I could fit into were my motivation to email Samantha and become a client. Just one month after I began the training, I was another person upbeat, lots of energy, more patient with my kids, and in a better mood. I did not realize until then, that previously I had been angry most of the time. Prayer became a key element in my daily life. I would watch Samantha's DVD's on a daily basis which are loaded with information, encouragement and hope. I had worked my way up to 45 minutes on my Elliptical machine instead of just 15 minutes at the beginning of my training. After my 6 months of training, I feel great, beautiful, energetic and secure. I went from a size 12 to a 6. I lost 20 pounds and 43 inches. I have found freedom in the fact that I don't have to punish myself for eating a treat, I can just start fresh the next mealnot next Monday! What has helped me the most is the accountability and encouragement offered at Pure Health Studios. I could not have done it without the support given to me by the wonderful ladies at Pure Health & Fitness Studios."CALL NOW FOR YOUR BODY TRANSFORMATION ANALYSIS In a private studio for women in Lutz CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4, 2012 5 8534 N.

Scotch, DO, FAOCOBoard Certified Otolaryngologist Seven Oaks Summergate Professional Center27406 Cashford Circle Wesley Chapel, FL 33544813-994-8900www.ScotchENT.com School carpooling program expandsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authoritys (TBARTA) carpooling program is expanding to Pasco County. The program, which started in 2003 and currently serves residents in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties, matches parents and their children from the same school together to form carpools. Today 1,200 families participate. The School Pool program is one of our most successful initiatives and it is absolutely free to schools and parents who want to participate, said TBARTA executive director Bob Clifford. We have agreements with schools in Hillsborough and Pinellas counties but would like to expand the program to schools in all seven TBARTA counties. Walker Middle Magnet in Odessa has 36 families that use the program. Cassie Schroeder, who helps organize the carpools for Walker, said they began offering the program when the school became a magnet school this school year. We have kids zoned for our school, but because were a magnet program kids from outside the school boundary can come here too, Schroeder said. Theres transportation offered with buses for those kids, but sometimes its just easier to have a carpool. TBARTA spokeswoman Amy Ellis said the program was created as part of the authoritys overall goal of reducing traffic congestion in its seven-county region. She added parents who participate in the program save money on gas, as well as wear and tear on their vehicles. Fewer cars around schools also improves air quality. Ellis said TBARTA has applied for a grant to eventually offer online registration for the carpooling program while also finding groups for children who bicycle or walk to school. More information on the School Pool program, as well as other TBARTA services, is available at www.tampabayrideshare.org. Principals or parent-teacher organizations that are interested in starting a carpool should call (800) 998-7433.

Whos whoDilip J. Mathew MD, a cardiologist has been practicing cardiac electrophysiology for the last ten years. Dr. Mathew is involved in all aspects of managing cardiac arrhythmias. Respectively, he received training in cardiology at Brigham and Womens Hospital at Harvard Boston and in cardiac electrophysiology at Lahey Clinic, Massachusetts. He performs implantation of pacemakers, and defibrillators, as well as electrophysiological studies and ablations.He has a special interest in lead extraction and ablation therapies for atrial fibrillation. Over the last 10 years, he has successfully performed nearly 2000 of these complex ablations. He also performs lead extraction of chronic pacemaker and defibrillator leads and is among the few cardiac electrophysiologists in Florida credentialed to perform these high-risk procedures. While making a profound impression on Florida Medical Clinic, Dr. Mathew has volunteered for the non-profit organization Project Pacer, performing implants on indigent patients in India. In his spare time, Dr. Mathew enjoys spending time with family, filmmaking, literature and reading fictional books. Dr. Mathew is located at: 15303 Amberly Drive #A Tampa, FL 33647 813.386.3333www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Electric HeartsMeetDr. MathewBy:Erica Collura It doesnt take a bionic heart to generate electricity in the human body, and it doesnt take supernatural powers either.The human heart is an electrical system of its own. Dilip J.Mathew,MD,FACC,FHRS, specializes in cardiac electrophysiology. Electrophysiologists are cardiologists who have additional education and training in the diagnosis and treatment of abnormal heart rhythms.Cardiac Electrophysiologists could also be considered heart electricians.Every time a heart beats it has certain rhythms,Dr.Mathew said.Electrophysiologists treat abnormal rhythms.Abnormal rhythms can range anything from very slow heart rates to very fast heart rates.Types of heart rhythm disorders could include:bradycardia,tachycardia,premature heartbeats and atrial fibrillation. Bradycardia describes a heartbeat that beats too slowly,less than 60 beats a minute.Slow heart rates can be the result of certain medications,congenital heart disease,or the degenerative processes of aging. As opposed to bradycardia,tachycardia is a too-rapid heartbeat.If a patients heart rate is faster than 100,than he or she could be diagnosed with tachycardia.Most of the time these disorders can be controlled by medication,Dr.Mathew said.Otherwise,invasive procedures such as ablation may be necessary. Heartbeats that are premature will feel as though the heart has skipped a beat.This type of disorder isn't usually serious, Dr.Mathew said.It just needs to be monitored to make certain the condition does not worsen. Atrial fibrillation is an abnormal rhythm in which the chaotic,irregular heartbeat causes a sensation of fluttering in the chest .This occurs when the upper chambers of the heart beat rapidly Dr.Mathew recommends living a healthy life-style. Exercising regularly and maintaining a low-fat diet with plenty of fruits,vegetables and other vitamin-rich foods lay the foundation for a heart-healthy diet. In addition to making the proper lifestyle choices,avoiding tobacco is very important.Smoking contributes to as much as one-third of all cardiovascular diseases.Working together forTheLaker / LutzNews& Fortunately for cardiac electrophysiologists, medical technology has advanced and found a way to shrink a standard size defibrillator into a very small computer-programmed device called an implantable cardioverterdefibrillator, also known as an ICD. An ICD is slightly bigger than a pacemaker. If it detects dangerous heart rhythms, it sends an electrical shock to a patients heart. It works just like a portable ambulance, said Dr. Mathew. The device requires surgery to implant it in the chest. Although the surgery is invasive, we do not have to open the chest up, he said. We create subcutaneous pockets in a patients chest, which enables us to connect wires to the heart that are threaded through veins in the chest. The ICD is a relatively new technology. This device made its debut in the 80s and has been saving lives since. In such a short time, the technology has transformed into a smaller more innovative material, meaning it makes surgery and post op more comfortable. Dr. Mathews experience with defibrillators helps provide a healthy stress-free lifestyle.Medical Spotlight Ask the DoctorWhat is Atrial Fibrillation? Atrial fibrillation is a common arrhythmic disorder In atrial fibrillation, disorganized electrical pulses that originate in the heart s upper chambers cause the rhythm of the lower chambers to be fast and irregular. Because contractions are not coordinated as in a normal heartbeat; the heart does not pump blood effectively to the rest of the body. What are symptoms? Anormal heart beats about 60100 times a minute. Apatient with atrial fibrillation disorder will have a heart rate of about 200250 beats per minute. Common symptoms are palpitations and shortness of breath while others can be vague including: lightheadedness, fatigue and lack of energy. How is it diagnosed? Atrial fibrillation is diagnosed by an electrocardiogram (EKG)a simple, painless test that records the hearts electrical activity. Stroke and heart failure are the two most common complications of atrial fibrillation. How is it treated? Oftentimes, atrial fibrillation can be controlled by medications that slow the heart rate (B blockers) or maintain the normal heart rhythm (anti-arrhythmics). Patients may also need anticoagulants (blood thinners) which prevents blood clot formation and reduces the risk of having a stroke. If medications do not tame the condition, invasive procedures such as ablation using percutaneous catheters may be required.GOOD HEALTHIMPLANTABLE CARDIOVERTER DEFIBRILLATOR (ICD) 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS Apri l 4, 2012 6 Send business news to bcmanion@cnewspubs.comCAPO JOINS FLORIDA CANCER AFFILIATESFlorida Cancer Affiliates, a newly formed community-based medical oncology and hematology practice, has appointed Mary Capo special projects coordinator.

northern Hillsborough and southern Pasco counties came by their names. Lutz got its name from two brothers, William and Charles Lutz.The two had connections with two railroads that met and joined at Lutz Junction,the book says. William was a train engineer for the Tampa Northern Railroad that ran north and south through the North Tampa Land Companys development. Charles built a railroad line that ran west of the station to Odessa to transport lumber from his sawmill there.That was part of the Tampa and Gulf Coast Railroad. Land OLakes was named much later. In 1949,the residents of the communities a few miles north of Lutz Nowatney, Myrtle,Denham,Drexel,Ehren,Godwin, Greenfield,Tucker,Diston and Loyce came together to form Land OLakes,the book relates. The book also maps the history of buildings and commerce locally.The Lutz map identifies 123 sites,including cemeteries, churches,restaurants,grocery stores,a barbershop,a bandstand,a post office and a lumber mill.The Land OLakes map identifies 102 sites,including a log cabin, restaurants,churches,banks,motels,schools, a funeral home and dairies. People traveled by stagecoach or wagon or on horseback.Later,they drove cars over rutted,sandy roads.A trip to Wesley Chapel was a bit of a haul,recalled Annie Belle Strickland Brock. We had a wagon and horses.When wed go to stay for all night with my grandmother,Mamas mother,on the other side of Wesley Chapel,she would take us in the wagon and wed take lunch. The book is loaded with facts and figures. It notes that the 1927 construction date commonly associated with the Old Lutz School actually referred to the end of its first school year. It also gives the genesis of the Lutz Civic Association,which grew from a nucleus of about 20 people who gathered for a meeting on Nov.16,1943 into an organization that has shaped community life and development. The book chronicles where people worked,what people ate,where they worshipped and how they had fun. You name it,they did it.From growing, picking,and hauling fruit to making charcoal and moonshine,raising chickens, grinding cane,herding cattle,cutting and hauling crossties,selling ferns and killing gators Lutz-Land OLakes pioneers did it all to make ends meet,the book says. With much of the area covered in pine trees,lumber and turpentine were boom industries in the late 1800s and early 1900s, the book notes. Citrus was king for many decades, states a caption,under a photograph of a man standing in a grove.By the 2000s,the book notes,there were very few orange groves left in the area.The freeze of 1985 was the final blow to most.Rather than replant,many owners sold their property for commercial purposes,often to developers. The pioneers of Lutz and Land OLakes didnt have microwave ovens or fast-food restaurants,but they were resourceful. If youre hungry enough,youll eat just about anything,the book says.The pioneers did just that.Possums,rabbits,coons, turkeys,dove,quail,soft-shell turtles,wild hogs even sand hill cranes landed on many a table as the meat of the day. Beef was rare,however,recalled Ted Williams.About the only time we would have beef was when one of Sam Hopsons cows got hit on the road. Fruits and vegetables were a prime source of sustenance. Wild huckleberries,blackberries,strawberries and guavas were picked to make jams and jellies or used in fruit cobblers. Vegetables collard greens,turnips,potatoes,cucumbers,peas,beans,corn, tomatoes,carrots were homegrown,the book notes. At the end of the workweek,families were ready to worship and socialize. The faith communities in Lutz-Land O Lakes have been strong since the first churches were founded in the early 1910s, the book notes. Going to church gave neighbors a chance to see each other and be informed about marriages,births,deaths,and illnesses, as well as be uplifted spiritually,the book says. Recreation was simple.Picnics,dances, softball and swimming were among the mainstays.Old-fashioned fun ruled the day. The most popular events at the original Fourth of July celebration in Lutz in 1947, were climbing the greased pole and catching the greased pig,the book says. The books photographs show change, with images of buildings that no longer exist,of churches that have moved and of people posing in groves or at picnics. MacManus said her efforts were a tribute to her mothers quest to preserve local history. While she is not planning another local history,she hopes other communities will be encouraged to write their own. They think they have to be professional,she said,but they shouldnt feel intimidated. All it takes is a little organization and somebody to put it together. Pioneer MemoriesRecollections from Going, Going Almost Gone:LutzLand OLakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memoriesby Elizabeth Riegler MacManus and Susan A.MacManus.Willie Haug: I was 10 years old when I started comin out there and on Saturday evenings,there were two brothers that had the sawmill over here at Ehren,Lutz brothers Charles and William Lutz.William Lutz associated mainly with the old folks,and Charles Lutz,or Charlie Lutz,as they called him, came over to the little store and every kid that was in there,he would buy a piece o candy,chewing gum,ice cream or a cold drink.Each one of them got somethin every Saturday night. Charlie was about 5 or 5, weighed about 160,165 pounds and he dressed like one of these plantation owners from South and Central America real light or white suit,white shoes,Panama hat,such as that. William was quite reserved,he wore dark suits,shoes and hat all the time, whether itd be grey,dark grey,or black or blue.But Lutz was named after those two boys way back then. Worth Johnson: Bill Hood and I cleared several acres of land around there grubbed palmettos out of it with a grubbin hoe to make some extra money.I made the money for my first pair of long pants delivering four-feet cord wood in the boxcars down there at Stemper.Fifteen years old.Went to town,down there at the corner of Lafayette and Franklin Street to Giddens Dry Goods Store,bought my first pair of long pants. George Riegler: Wed frequently go to town with six or seven hundred pounds of cabbage,couple of hundred pounds of potatoes and rutabagas,carrots,turnips you name it,theres just barely enough room for Grandpa, Grandma and the kids stuck in,and all of the rest of the touring car was vegetables;back bumper,front bumper,fenders, parking lights,running boards,door handles,burlap bags,hung on it across the engine Jimmy Marsh: The big day for me is when Id eat lunch with my dad at the depot.Hed get a can of potted meat, and a can of Vienna sausage,and a sleeve of Nabisco saltines,and a cold drink. Wed share a cold drink.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 10 Going,Going Almost Gone:Lutz-Land OLakes Pioneers Share Their Precious Memories,retails for $65,but three local shops are selling it for $50.Co-author Susan MacManus wrote the book with her mother,Elizabeth Riegler MacManus,who died in 2008.MacManus is using some of the money left by her mother to subsidize the book so more readers can enjoy it. Emma Lou Harvey,of Harveys Hardware in Land OLakes,said book sales are brisk: We had a lady call who no longer lives in the area and she bought seven books.She was buying them for different members of the family.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 11 By Cindy Spencecspence@cnewspubs.comMatt the greyhound has arrived at a point in his life that many humans can relate to.Arthritis is limiting his mobility and causing him pain.And like many humans,Matt has tried traditional treatments with little relief. Arthritis always takes a toll,whether you are human or canine,said Linda DePietto, Matts foster mom. As a foster animal,Matts options ordinarily might be limited.But Matt is a ward of Greyhound Rescue and Adoptions of Tampa Bay,or GREAT,which turned to East-West Animal Hospital for help.There,Matt has been getting acupuncture treatment from veterinarian Linda Register.With this alternative treatment,Matt found relief. Sometimes its the only option if conventional medicine has failed or is not giving relief or improvement,or if the side effects of conventional medicine are an issue,Register said. Register said acupuncture is still uncommon but not rare.Although acupuncture courses were not offered when she attended college,Register followed her curiosity about the procedure to the Chi Institute in Reddick.There,she trained and became certified,and began offering the procedure at East-West. Register finds many pet owners,particularly those whose pets have intractable health issues,are open to trying acupuncture even though it costs more than conventional treatments and can be timeconsuming.The health history Register takes is five pages long and the procedure is generally about an hour.The therapy also is not just about needles,Register said. Acupuncture treatment includes food therapy,herbs,Chinese massage,mild chiropractic,and eliminating environmental stressors. Acupuncture originated in ancient China,where practitioners discovered 361 points in humans and 173 in animals that could be stimulated with needles to therapeutic effect.The horseracing industry, which restricts medication,introduced acupuncture to U.S.veterinary circles. The procedure works well with neurologic and anxiety disorders,Register said. For example,chronic circling.We had a dog that circled 100 times before he would urinate,Register said.With one treatment, he circled less. Register also has used acupuncture to reduce seizures in a Schnauzer and to treat limping and weakness in greyhounds,like Matt.Treatments generally are weekly in the beginning and become monthly,like the Schnauzer with seizures and Matt. There is no guarantee it will work, Register cautions.She has seen results that run from remarkable improvement to no improvement. Liz Lynch,Matts original foster mom,said she saw definite drops in Matts stiffness and pain,and DePietto said the improvements have continued since she began fostering Matt in January. He is a sweet,sweet dog,DePietto said. Im going to have to be particular about who takes this boy.Pets find relief in acupuncture treatments Veterinarian Linda Register begins an acupuncture treatment on Matt the greyhound as foster mom Liz Lynch looks on. Matt gets ready for an acupuncture treatment. (Photos by Cindy Spence) About MattMatt regularly attends greyhound adoption events at the Petco in Odessa.He is 10 old for a greyhound and has quite a history.He was tattooed for competition,but then rejected for racing.He was adopted at 2,but at 9 1/2 his owner became terminally ill and gave him up. He has been with GREAT ever since.To contact GREAT or find an adoption event,call (813) 971-4732.

HEALTH & WELLNESSSo I figured a documentary,a good twohour documentary,would be something that you could put all those pieces together and it could be spread virally throughout Tampa Bay,so that we could really witness that there really are jobs being created and that we can have this whole other direction that we could be going,Stewart said. Stewart actually doesnt consider himself a greenperson.Through his interest in the oil market and thanks to some biology and chemistry courses,Stewart realized how inefficiently resources were being used. I was witnessing that we werent very efficient with our resources.We were wasting them in an unconscious way.I dont even want to consider myself green,I want to consider myself more conscious of what Im doing and more conscious of the energy and the matter that Im using,he said. Since Stewart is still working fulltime, this project is coming out on his own time. He is hoping to raise enough money through a website that online users can donate to until May 2.The financial goal of $18,000 isnt enough for Stewart to work on the documentary fulltime.He said a portion of the money would go to the website,as well as monthly and annual website and domain fees;as well as going toward buying higher-end equipment to bolster the quality of the product.Stewart still hasnt really ironed out all the kinks,saying he prefers not to plan too far ahead.But one thing is clear:whether or not the documentary pans out,Stewart is keen on getting his word out. What we need is an economy thats based on ethics ethics for caring for the earth,and caring for people and sharing the abundance,fair share.I feel that has not been established and Id like to help show people how it could be. Having a community thats growing and thriving is better than having a community thats falling apart,Stewart said. GREEN,from page 1 Follow us on facebook www.facebook.com/thelakerlutznews

You can breathe easy being in our salon... Stop by for a consultation.By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority (HART) was recently honored as one of 17 agencies nationwide as having the highest possible security methods. For HART,it means our plans and procedures are up to par with best practices, and we will continue finetuning our collaboration with law enforcement and emergency responders,said Michael Stephens,who oversees HARTs safety and security.HART is a valuable resource for law enforcement investigations and during an emergency,and we are ready to respond when needed. HART received Gold Standard designation from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA).Transit authorities volunteer for a comprehensive review of its systems to identify vulnerabilities and assess progress in areas like planning,training, background checks and public outreach. Stephens said HART has been able to enhance its security and emergency management by building strong partnerships with local law enforcement and emergency response agencies.He added they have boosted training for drivers,transportation supervisors and maintenance employees to increase their awareness to suspicious activities. HARTs increase in security started in earnest during 2002 when it used federal money to create an extensive surveillance system.It now has cameras on all of its buses and streetcars along with its buildings.Stephens said the cameras help enforce ridership rules while increasing the chance crimes are recorded to help law enforcement catch lawbreakers. The recognition comes at a time when HARTs ridership is at an all-time high. HART saw an increase of 10 percent in the number of people using its buses in 2011,up to 13.7 million.Just fewer than 50 million have boarded the authoritys buses, vans and streetcars since 2008. HART was one of only two transit authorities based in Florida to earn the honor along with the Pinellas Suncoast Transit District. I commend these organizations for their commitment and hard work that this level of achievement requires,said TSA administrator John Pistole.TSA recognizes the continued dedication individual transit agencies demonstrate every day to ensure the safety of travelers nationwide.

(Photo provided)Whats ailing my azaleas?By BJ JarvisPasco Extens i on Horti cultur i st and Di rectorAfter azalea shrubs bloom, it is time to prune excess vegetation. While pruning, you may find that leaves are spotted or have a whitish cast to them. The culprit is likely the azalea lace bug. You may have noticed -anytime theres a bug named for the plant, theres a good chance infestations are common. Check under the leaves for round black specks. This isnt the actual bug, but rather its excrement, or an egg-case which its momma cemented to the leaf with a molasses-like mixture. Specks are often easier to see than the small, nearly translucent insect. What kind of damage do lace bugs cause? Once hatched, the juveniles spend the day on the lower leaf surface systematically sucking the sap. In addition to azaleas, the azalea lace bug also enjoys hanging on other shrubs and trees, including lantana, hawthorn, oaks and sycamore. Lace bugs are the key reason sycamores drop their leaves quite early in the fall. Vigilant gardeners may be able to keep lace bug populations down on smaller plants by shooting a strong jet of water from a garden hose on the succulent new leaves. Do this in early spring when young are hatching. While this may not be practical on tall sycamore trees, gardeners can maintain good control on smaller plants such as azaleas. If the pests get ahead of you and stronger measures are needed, horticultural soaps or Neem Oil also works effectively. Apply at one-week intervals in the spring until control is achieved. For more information about azaleas and their pests, check out the University of Floridas Extension website at http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/topic_azalea. Also contact Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474 with gardening questions. BJ Jarvis is the Director of Pasco Cooperative Extension a part of the University of Florida/IFAS and Pasco County government.

Voted Floridas No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity SportsBy Jeff OdomThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentThe Steinbrenner baseball team may have gotten off to a shaky start this season, but its players are intent on making sure it doesnt end that way. The Warriors (11-6) lost three of their first four games,but under the direction of third-year coach John Crumbley things brightened quickly. Senior pitcher Chris Williams (4-0,1.93 ERA) said the squad quickly realized it needed to play as a team. It was tough at first because we werent really used to losing;its not how were built,said Williams,a St.Leo University signee.We just came together and were just like Hey,maybe were not as good as we think we are,and we need to start playing as a team instead of a bunch of individuals.I think weve done that.Crumbley said his focus at the start of the season was to get his players experience, which contributed to the early struggles.I just think we were playing people early and trying to give people opportunities to succeed,and it just took us a little while to get to the flow of what were going to stick with,Crumbley said.I think now were doing the little things better,and people have settled into their roles. Steinbrenner lost a few of its playmakers last year including three who signed to play in college.However,a new crop of players have filled the void such as first-year varsity pitcher Cole Gordon (5-1,0.72 ERA) and senior left fielder Sammy May,who hadnt made a start until this season. Its been fun finally getting an opportunity to play,said May,who is hitting .346. Every day at practice Ive been working on my swing and hitting off the tee.Im just staying focused and not goofing around. The Warriors are currently seeded No.1 in Class 7A-District 9,scoring district wins over Freedom (12-4),Wiregrass Ranch (13-4) and Gaither (10-7).Crumbley said his team has to play consistently to stay on top. Weve set ourselves up pretty well, Crumbley said.As far as district seeding goes,the destiny is in our court.Getting the No.1 seed is what were striving toward. Weve never had that in our existence in three years,so basically were looking at trying to secure that. Williams added playing tough district games has made the squad stronger.Were facing a little bit better pitching (in the new district),Williams said.So in the beginning it was a little struggle,but now since weve gotten used to it were doing our jobs and thats why were continuing to keep winning.If Steinbrenner makes it out of the district tournament,it will be the first trip to the playoffs for the third-year program. Crumbley said thats the collective goal. We want to get to those postseasons and try and see how far you can go, Crumbley said.And as a coach thats how youre measured,so were looking for hopefully an opportunity to do that this year. The Warriors played a makeup game against Brandon on April 2,but results were not available by press time. Steinbrenner hosts Freedom on April 5 at 7 p.m.Gaither hosts the 7A-9 tournament, with the championship on Thursday,April 26 at 7 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Gaither baseball team has one of the most successful traditions in Hillsborough County. The Cowboys (10-7) have averaged more than 19 wins the last six years and have made the playoffs every season since 2005, a campaign that included a trip to the Class 6A state finals. I like our team,and I told them at the beginning of the year Why not us?,said Frank Permuy,the only coach the programs 27-year history.Were just as good as anyone,and its not because we dont work.We have guys whore capable of playing in the state tournament.Were as good as we were in 2005. Senior designated hitter (DH),outfielder and pitcher Matt Frey also sees something special. I think we could be in the final four, Frey said.We have a lot of potential.Theres so much talent on this team and we have 14 seniors who have basically grown up playing together. Part of that belief comes from Gaither losing only three seniors,but two were pitchers Robert Johnson and Zach Jackson who had a combined 12-3 record in 92.1 innings. Thats hard to replace,Permuy said.We got Alex Milne back,who had an off year last year and is doing alright.Evan Gainey came out of nowhere,and hes become a pretty good pitcher. Gainey is 4-3 with a 1.46 ERA and 56 strikeouts in 48 innings. We have some depth,said Gainey. Starting wise we could be a little more consistent throwing strikes,but I think we have great potential. Milne,a University of Central Florida signee,is in his fourth year in the starting rotation.He is 2-2 with a 2.75 ERA.Frey (2-1) has helped the rotation after only playing DH a year ago while recovering from left shoulder surgery. Frey has also been a force in the lineup, hitting .405 with 11 RBI after batting .317 with 11 RBI last year. I feel more comfortable in the box,Frey said.Sometimes I feel it in the arm,but when its good I feel really good. Freys increased batting average is part of an overall change for Gaither.The squad hit .294 in 2011,which has risen to .319 this year with a .414 on-base percentage.Seven Cowboys with at least 25 at bats are hitting better than .275. It really speaks volumes of our coaching staff preaching about the approach we need at the plate,said senior outfielder Hayden Kelley,who is hitting .370.Thats the biggest thing that has helped me this year.Just going up to the plate and knowing what you want to do.Is it to get a guy over or in and what do you have to do to accomplish that.Even if you are out be a productive out. Junior shortstop Oscar Mercado,a Florida State University commit,has led the way at the plate,hitting.417.He also has 19 RBI and eight steals while shining as the infields leader. We had a young infield coming in,said Mercado,who is in his third year starting. Our first baseman was starting for the first time on varsity.Our starting second baseman broke his jaw,so we had to go with a young backup,and our third baseman is starting for the first time.I felt like I had to show them how to do things. Gaither is in Class 7A-District 9,which includes Chamberlain,Freedom,Steinbrenner and Wiregrass Ranch.Only the Chiefs are below .500,making the race for the No.1 seed and a first round bye in the district tournament hotly contested.

By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Freedom baseball team suffered a major loss on March 18,but it wasnt in a game. Patriots sophomore pitcher Taylor King lost his 50-year-old father,David,on that date;the final day of spring break.His teammates learned of his devastating loss the next day at school. That was a rough week for us,said third-year Freedom coach A.J.Leppla.We had a big tragedy losing somebody in the family,but were looking to build together through that adversity. Before the year I told the team about a friend from college whose 2-yearold daughter past away from cancer,and our guys have kept her on their mind.Then this hit a little closer to home for them.Theyve talked about playing for something bigger than themselves. The Patriots (12-4) are wearing Davids initials DK stitched onto their hats and also spray paint those letters behind home plate and on the pitchers mound for home games.Leppla said they want to make the playoffs for the first time in the programs nine-year history to honor Davids memory. Freedom had difficulty playing its first game after learning of the death,falling 11-1 against Class 7A-District 9 rival Steinbrenner on March 20. There was a lot going on with the team when we played that game,said senior catcher Eric Schindler.We played about as bad as we have all year. The Patriots pulled together quickly and responded with a 9-5 win against district opponent Gaither on March 24. We came together nicely and played like we can,Leppla said.Mr.King would have been proud. Junior second baseman/pitcher Chandler Chapman,who was recently named to the Perfect Game USA All-American team as an honorable mention,said the win over Gaither shows how far the squad has come We would have never done that last year,Chapman said. Freedom,which is still looking for its first winning season,is off to the best start in program history and has added reason to finally make the postseason,but nothing will come easy in 7A-9.Four of the five teams in the district have a winning record. Were excited,but were keeping a level head about it,said pitcher/shortstop Kyle Schindler,Erics twin brother.We dont want to get too excited because we havent done anything yet.It doesnt matter what we do now.It matters what we do in districts. Junior third baseman/pitcher Johnny Keigher said the tough district is making the team play its best every night. Having a very difficult league makes us have to step up our game,Keigher said.We know we have to play really well to make it.It makes our game that much better. Keigher transferred this season from Jesuit, which finished as the 4A state runner-up last year.He said the postseason is a constant topic of discussion. We talk about it all the time,Keigher said. Its basically our main goal to make the playoffs.We want to make sure we get there. Leppla,who came to the Patriots three years ago from Wiregrass Ranch,said he knew the team would have strong pitching and solid defense,which gave him confidence they could compete. Pitching and defense wins championships,Leppla said.Look at what the Rays did last year.I mean they just found a way to win with pitching and defense,and thats what we do.I knew we wouldnt be great offensively,but its been the timely hitting thats helped us. Leppla said the hitting has started to come around lately. But its going to have to keep getting better,Leppla said.We need to make sure were getting timely hits to support our pitchers.

It is the fourth straight title for the Bulls in their six-year history,while the Gators picked up their first SAC crown ever. We have great athletes,said first-year Land OLakes boys track coach Bill Schmitz. All year we had strength across the board. Most of the time we were able to score in all 17 events,and we did that again today. The Gators ran away with the team title with 159.5 points,besting second place Anclote by 52.5.The defending SAC champs Wiregrass Ranch finished third and Sunlake took fifth.Schmitz,an assistant on the Land OLakes football team,talked several athletes into joining track this year including Shadow Williams,Jackson Cannon and Nico Watts from football and Josh Davis from soccer. Cannon won the discus with a throw of 141 feet 10.50 inches.The Gators also got conference titles from pole vaulter Ian McKenzie,the 4x400-meter relay and a pair of titles from senior Darin Patmon in the 110 (15.49 seconds) and 300 (41.94) hurdles.Patmon has run track since his freshman year,but these are his first conference titles. In the 100 the kid was right with me the whole way,so I knew I had to keep pushing,Patmon said.I wanted this. There was tough competition in the sprint events between Sunlakes Eddie Burgos and Wiregrass Ranchs Jamel Nuez.

Wesley Chapel won three conference titles,one from high jumper Courtney Prengaman (5-06) and two from Ravin Gilbert in the 100 (12.22) and 200 (25.90). Now I can say Im conference champ in the 100 for the first time,Gilbert said.This is something Ive never experienced before. Finally I got this title. Gilbert also placed second in the 400 behind Land OLakesHallie Grimes (59.60).I just pushed as hard as I could on the last 100 because I could hear footsteps right behind me,Grimes said.She then added,I had to get prepared mentally before the race because I know who Im going up against.Freshman Jhade Hayes captured the only title for Sunlake in the discus throw (10508.75).I was just trying to throw at least 100, Hayes said.I have a bad blister.I thought that would hurt me more,but I got through it.The next challenges for area track and field athletes are the district meets. The Bulls girls will attempt to claim their fourth straight district championship at the Class 3A-District 6 meet on April 20 starting at noon.The Gators boys are looking for their first district title since 2007 and third overall at the same meet. Wiregrass Ranch junior Hannah Eder took first in the triple jump before finishing as the SAC runner up in the long jump.44.34;one hundredth of a second faster than Nuez. I seen Jamel right behind,and hes been up there with me this whole year,Burgos said.Ive just been hoping to get him one time. Nuez came back and bested Burgos in the 200 by posting a 23.07. I felt like I had to give it my all,Nuez said.Eddie Burgos beat me in the 100 and the 4x100,so I had to get my revenge. Sunlakes Travis Manecke won his second straight shot put conference title (45-09.50).The junior, who attended Wiregrass Ranch last year,scratched on his first and third attempts,but his one good throw was enough. During practice I was throwing really bad,so I tried to just put that out of my mind,Manecke said.I didnt throw very well today.I want to throw in the 50s. The Bulls girls also had a comfortable winning margin,scoring 137 to beat Mitchell by 39.5.Wesley Chapel placed fourth,while Land OLakes and Sunlake finished ninth and 10th,respectively.Don Howard has been Wiregrass Ranchs girls coach the last three years.His squads have known nothing but conference gold,but Howard didnt sleep easy the night before.I woke up this morning at 5 with a nervous stomach,Howard said. The Bulls lost six seniors from last years team.Howard said it meant a lot to win a conference crown after losing a number of top athletes. I think weve created a program that good athletes want to be a part of,Howard said.Then it becomes easy as a coach. Wiregrass Ranchs first individual title came from Hannah Eder,who set a personal best with a triple jump of 34-10.75.Last year at conference I didnt do very well,Eder said.I think the nerves got to me, but this year I just felt really positive. In practice Id hit 34,so thats what I was expecting but I was able to completely shatter that.Eder gave credit to first-year jumping coach Adorius Payne for getting her into top form.The Bulls also got field championships from Patricia Magwood (36-00) in the shot put and Alisha Henry (10-06) in the pole vault.Wiregrass Ranch scored big in the distance events thanks in large part to Nikita Shah wining the 1,600 (5:15.80) and 3,200 (11:17.06).Shah said her goal is to medal at states in both. Im really grateful for the success this season Im having,Shah said.Im happy to be staying healthy.All I can do is try my hardest.Im confident in my training,and this just backs that up. Elise Cedre won the 800 for the Bulls in 2:29.07.The squad also won the 4x400 and 4x100 in 4:16.92 and 50.90,respectively. A.J.Blount ran the final leg of the 4x100 less than eight months after suffering a torn ACL in her right knee while playing soccer. Im pretty tired working to get back in shape,Blount said.Coming here and winning this race with my teammates feels pretty good,but Im exhausted.The fact that I got my speed back is a plus because I was really scared that it wasnt going to happen,Blount continued.I give all my props to our athletic trainer Jen Stollery. Without her I wouldnt have gotten back.Continued from page 18 Wiregrass Ranch senior Jamel Nuez, left, and Sunlake junior Eddie Burgos pushed each other in the sprint events.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 4,2012 23 SPORTS By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLesley Graham scans the field one afternoon watching her team warm up before practice,and in her head is a vision of what the program may some day become. Graham is the coach of the inaugural Saint Leo University womens lacrosse team. She spends much of her time watching the Lions (4-7) work on passes,take faceoffs and fight for ground balls. Many of Grahams players grew up with the sport,while others are new to the game, but all are in search of the same goal making SLU into a perennial powerhouse. To be a part of the growth of the sport that I love;thats a great opportunity, Graham said.Its traditionally a Northeast/Mid-Atlantic game.When you think of lacrosse those are the areas you think of,but its really great to explore the talent in nontraditional areas.Its nice to give the Florida kids a chance to stay instate and show we do know how to play lacrosse. Two of those locals on the squad are sophomore defender Haley Skipper and freshman midfielder Kasey Tanner,who went to Wesley Chapel High. Tanner played many sports growing up, such as softball,swimming and cheerleading,but nothing stuck until she found lacrosse with the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association in ninth grade.Its a different kind of sport from anything Ive seen besides maybe hockey, Tanner said.It just uses a whole different set of skills,and its really fast paced. I feel really lucky that I get to play so close to home.Skipper tried lacrosse in eighth grade, but put her gear away in favor of high school soccer.She didnt touch the sticks again until college. I thought it was a good idea to help start something new here,Skipper said. Graham is one of the few who grew up focusing on lacrosse.She picked up the game in seventh grade,playing four years as a defender at Ithaca College.Her first coaching stint was with the U19 junior national team in Scotland. I found that I really loved coaching, Graham said.I got my masters in sports administration and was a graduate assistant at Canisius College.Graham coached one season at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia,but when she learned SLU was adding womens lacrosse she jumped at the chance to lead the program. She spent last year recruiting while scouring the university for anyone with athleticism and the drive to learn something new.That was really hard to recruit players to a team that doesnt exist,Graham said.I was lucky because our senior captain (Kelsey Cunningham) hosted recruits and showed them around to tell them what its like to be a student here. One of the biggest additions was Stephanie Marran.The sophomore midfielder scored 52 goals and was fourth in Division II nationally in draw controls with 6.2 per contest last year while at Post University in Waterbury,Conn.She was named to the USA College Lacrosse AllAmerican Rookie Team. I transferred here and I see it as an opportunity to help a new program,said Marran,who leads the team with 33 goals. Marran plays forward for the Lions soccer team,which went 15-3-1 and finished the year ranked No.23 nationally.She believes the lacrosse program can be as successful.Therere a lot of talented girls on this team,Marran said.I think itll take a couple years because we dont have very many people yet,but once we get more well be good.The journey to the top wont be easy largely because it includes many trips.The Lions are one of three Division II programs in Florida.The squad will play the first few years as an independent,giving Graham the opportunity to schedule tough opponents. This year weve played No.3 (Limestone College) in the country and No.5 (Rollins College) in the country,Graham said. People were asking me why would you do that,but its good.You want to be challenged. Tanner sees the squad uniting. We trust each other on the field,Tanner said.Also the jitters are gone.The first games we were scared.When we lost to Limestone we played horribly in the first half,but in the second half we came back and tied their score 7-7 through the half.Were capable of so much. SLU secured its first victory on Feb.24 19-2 at Catawba College in North Carolina. What was nice is we got to play another first-year program, Graham said.It showed us a comparable opponent because theyre in the same position we are.We were able to go out and execute our gameplan and play as a team for the full 60 minutes. Marran had three goals and two assists in the win,while Tanner scored her first of the season. Im a low shooter,and it was probably the first high shot Ive ever made,Tanner said.That in itself was pretty exciting,but it also made me hungry for more. The Lions lost their next four games after their first win,but rolled off a three-game winning streak after that. SLU hosted Converse College on April 2, but results were not available by press time. The Lions play Newberry College on April 13 before hosting Florida Southern College on April 18 in their regular season finale. Both contests start at 7 p.m.Womens lacrosse comes to Saint LeoPPAL Land O Lakes Gators signupThe Pasco Police Athletic League (PPAL),a youth football and cheerleading program,is having open registration for the 2012 fall season.There are programs for football players ages 5 to 15 and cheerleaders ages 4 to 15.

When Harvey signs,which is expected to happen in the next few days,he will become the first boy athlete in school history to sign a letter of intent to play in college for any sport. Harvey racked up 1,558 rushing yards on 100 carries while scoring 42 touchdowns for the Wildcats six-man football team as a senior. Webber is an independent NAIA program in Babson Park.Pair of Gators head to MariettaLand O Lakes wide receivers Ricky Bowles and Nico Watts have committed to Marietta College in Ohio,a Division III program in the Ohio Athletic Conference.Bowles said the two visited Marietta during spring break. We loved the campus and football program, said Bowles,who thanked his father for helping in the recruitment process.We felt it was a good fit for both of us. Watts had 12 catches for 274 yards and two touchdowns last season while adding 78 yards on six carries and another score.He also played defensive back,where he picked off six passes.Boyles missed a few games due to injury as a senior,but managed five grabs for 56 yards.Sports Editor Kyle LoJacono can be reached at (813) 909-2800 or klojacono@cnewspubs.com.

The squad lost one senior,Kallie Shirling who signed to play at Thomas University. The biggest change comes at the coaching spot,where Jerry English steps in for Jack Shirling,Kallies father. English coached at Land OLakes for 27 years,where he led the Gators to the state finals in 1995 and to three regional finals. The number of players is the biggest difference,English said.At Land OLakes we had a varsity and junior varsity team.One year at tryouts I had 90 come out. Junior shortstop/pitcher Sydney Boynton said English has a more straightforward approach. I knew that coach English would go back to basics,which I thought was good because we had some players who could play but the fundamentals were off,Sydney said.Our coach last year was a really good coach,and he was actually my travel ball coach,and he was more used to coaching at a different level. English said he believes in focusing on fundamentals,especially given the diversity in the talent and experience of his players. This year what we have is a mixture of very good athletes who play travel ball to players who have never played before, English said.We had three girls learning how to pick up the ball and throw,but theyre young and working hard to get better. Those experienced players are also very young. Ive got one senior,Amelia Oliver,and a few juniors,English said.Most are sophomores and freshmen,and Ive got one eighth-grader.Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself how young the players are if they make mistakes.The great thing is they all want to play. The methods seem to be working as the Wildcats have clinched the No.1 seed in the Class 2A-District 4 tournament,which includes a bye to the championship game.The squad twice defeated Hernando Christian,a team that reached the final four last year,to earn the top spot. Evans has led the way offensively,posting a .644 batting average with 31 RBI,10 steals, eight doubles and nine triples while striking out only three times.As a pitcher she has a 5-2 record with a 1.05 ERA and 54 strikeouts. Sydney,who came to the academy as a sophomore from Wharton High,has a 6-2 record with a 2.00 ERA and 61 Ks while hitting .408 with 24 RBI.Her sister Skyler has a .412 batting average with 10 steals. I feel like were better,and I know our stats and record are better,Evans said.I feel like theres more of a team feeling.I feel like weve bonded a little bit more,and its probably because were winning. The players are also excited because an old tormentor is no longer in the Wildcats district or region.Canterbury has beaten the academy all 14 times the squads have played,including four years in a row for the district title. English points out it wont be easy to make a deep playoff run just because Canterbury is somewhat out of the picture. He illustrated that by describing the Wildcats5-3 loss to Bishop McLaughlin,a team they beat 20-5 earlier this season. We did things we shouldnt and it cost us,English said.I told them after that were through sneaking up on people.Weve played well,and now people want to beat us. The 2A-4 tournament is at Hernando Christian.The academy plays the winner of the semifinal between the event host and Lecanto Seven Rivers Christian for the championship on April 19 at 4:30 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coachesSPORTS Academy goes five for five Academy softball coach Jerry English talks with his team before a recent practice.
