One is based on her mothers advice:My mom tells me to just have fun. The other is a personal aim to improve in every performance. I dont think its about competition.Its about how you think you did,said the Wesley Chapel girl,who just returned from an international competition in Ohio, where she placed first allaround in her level in her age division. The competition drew more than 350 athletes,representing 47 clubs from 19 states and seven countries, including Ecuador,Ukraine, Belgium,Japan and Canada. During the event,Ng recalls wiping her sweaty palms on a towel,jumping up and down to settle her nerves and then going onto the floor to give it her all. I dance.And the rest is a blur.I melt into the music and smile,she noted in an email after the event. I almost cried on the podium.Ng,who attends John Long Middle School,said her motivation is to improve her own skills.She reasons that its possible to win even when not performing well because other competitors are not at the top of their game.And,it is possible to lose despite turning in a personal best because competitors have superior skill.A decorative touch during the holidays is common.Can the same be said for practicality? Katie Burcaw,a sixth-grader from Lutzs Martinez Middle,managed to come up with both in her creation of a gift called the Tree IV a hydration system in the form of an ornament for the family Christmas tree. And now she has cashed in on her cool idea with a cool grand,as her creativity and ingenuity landed her one of the three $1,000 top prizes at the Young Innovator Competition at USFs Patel Center in February.More than 500 entries were judged and Burcaw,12,was picked as having the best invention among the five middle school finalists.Sixteen finalists in all represented students at the elementary,middle and high school levels. Using a premise as simple as making the most of gravity,Burcaws invention allows a person to water a tree through a strategically placed ornament that has a clear tube running down to the trees base. And theres nothing quite like an invention that assists the inventor.For Burcaw, there will be no more precarious trips to the bottom of the tree,of which she had tired. As the oldest of four siblings it is my responsibility to water the Christmas tree,she Warriors come out on top in pitchers' duel Lutz sixth-grader is young innovator Passion for sport moves gymnast

The two Lutz residents will be volunteering their boats and their fishing skills again this year when they help host military personnel in the 2012 Take a Soldier Fishing Tournament,which will be held May 12 with a launch from Port Hudson Marina. The event is organized by B&G Fishing Charters,Tampa Bay Inshore Chartersand the U.S.Special Operations Command Care Coalition,but volunteers like Taylor and Blasciak serve as the backbone of the operation. Its an honor for me,said Taylor,who will take a handful of soldiers on his 20-foot fishing boat for the fourth year.I thank them every time they come aboard my boat. We tend to take our leisure time here at home for granted and forget that our service men and women dont get the opportunities for things as simple as fishing.I want to thank them for watching our backs. Blasciak,who was recruited by Taylor last year,will be taking his 24-foot boat out with soldiers for the second time. Its the least I can do for them,he said of his guests.They all had a great time last year,and whenever I hit a fish I made sure to let them reel it in.Some of them had never had the opportunity before. That included the excitement of landing a few 4-foot sharks and last year and up to 70 sea trout.They couldnt believe how much action we had,Blasciak said. Meanwhile,many of the military guests ask to go after the larger fish. They want to land a snook or a red fish, Taylor said,but one year we tried for six hours without a bite.It all depends on the conditions.On the other hand,one year a female soldier on my boat caught the biggest red fish of the tournament at 22 inches.So you never do know. Either way,Taylor said the fishing is secondary to the relaxation and friendships that are made. Its all about the camaraderie,and just getting the chance to be in a loose atmosphere means the world to these people,he said.One year on my boat they were exchanging the special military coins they collect from every country in which they serve.A sergeant major gave one to me and Ill always treasure it.I was told later he had about 200 people who served under him and that he was a pretty important person. This years guest list will include military personnel from as close as MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa and from as far as the Fort Benning U.S.Army post in Columbus,Ga. New this year will be the inclusion of wounded soldiers. That may be a bit challenging,but well certainly accommodate them,Taylor said. Theyre the most deserving of all. With most boats holding just four or five guests,the number of invitees depends on the number of volunteers.Organizers are asking anyone with a boat to contact Scott Keith at (813) 760-6735 or Bill Palaski at (727) 423-0674.Volunteers to help serve food afterward during an awards ceremony are also needed.

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 LutzCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 8534 N.

Free In-Home Estimates Youll Adore Youll Adore Our Our FLOORS FLOORS The Beef OBradys in Wesley Chapel will be the finish line for an Orlando-to-Tampa fundraiser April 14,when Sgt.Josh Cope pulls up after hand-cycling 100 miles to raise money to build a home for a fellow wounded veteran.The ride is sponsored by Building Homes for Heroes,a non-profit group that builds or renovates homes to meet the needs of combat wounded veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with the goal of allowing them to live independent lives.Cope,who served in the U.S.Army and received two Purple Heart medals,will make the trek,but bicyclists can sign up to ride other distances, including the 10-mile ride to the finish.Copes journey will start at 7 a.m.at an empty lot intended to be the home site of Iraq veteran Specialist B.J.Jackson.The finish will be celebrated at Beef OBradys,1660 Bruce B.Downs Blvd.before Cope visits the home of New Tampa resident,U.S.Army Sgt. Joel Tavera,a beneficiary of Building Homes for Heroes in November 2011. Cope will pedal with his hands.Cope was injured during his second deployment to Iraq in 2006,when his vehicle rolled over an explosive device.He lost both legs above the knee and seriously injured his right hand.Cope will hand cycle in a custom bike alongside bicyclists who are joining him to raised money for Jacksons home. Jackson was injured when the vehicle he was driving triggered a roadside bomb and was hit by rocket-propelled grenades.He lost both legs below the knee and suffered severe burns on his arms,legs and back.To help the healing process,he was put in a medically induced coma for a month. Tavera,a highly decorated Iraq war veteran,received his home in Grand Hampton,a North Tampa community,in November.He had endured 73 surgeries since March 12, 2008,when five rockets struck his vehicle, killing three of his friends. Medics initially thought Tavera was dead. He suffered serious head trauma,lost sight in both eyes,lost his right leg and four fingers on his left hand,and sustained critical burns to 60 percent of his body. At the time of the incident his parents, Jose and Maritza Tavera,were told that their son was the second most severely injured soldier to survive the Iraq war.Tavera was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. His home was built by William Ryan Homes and includes a water-softening system for Taveras sensitive skin,a pool with therapy jets and a swimming exercise treadmill,and a front door that opens automatically upon Taveras approach.

The screenings take place at the HPHs East Pasco office,37445 Clinton Ave.in Dade City,on April 24 and 25 from 9 a.m.to 3 p.m. Appointments are required.Call Jan Double at (727) 705-0107 for an appointment.Health and Wellness listings are run for free on a first come,first served basis.Please send all information at least two weeks before an event to news@cnewspubs.com. Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Providing local people an affordable alternative to servicing their vehicles is the goal for Tom and Mike, co-owners of Precision Complete Auto Care in Lutz. We have the same scanners and new technology that dealers have and can offer our customers the same diagnostic services at a much more affordable rate, said Mike, an electrical engineer who brings an unusually high level of technical knowledge to an independent service center. Mikes engineering degree is complimented by Toms 30 years experience an automotive mechanic. Tom has been working on cars his entire life and has just about every certification available from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). We have the diagnostic tools, technical knowledge and real world experience seldom found in a smaller shop, said Tom. I like to share our knowledge with customers by taking them out to the shop and physically showing them what is wrong with their vehicle and what needs to be done to get them safely back on the road. In addition to their high level of competence, Mike and Tom offer outstanding customer service because they genuinely care about their clients and their safety. People fail to remember that their vehicle is a weapon if its not safe, it should not be put on the road, especially if they have bad brakes and tires, said Mike. If a repair is essential, I ask customers if they would you walk around with a broken leg. We will do everything that we can to get it done so a customer and his family has a safe vehicle to drive. Precision Complete Auto offers inhouse financing on major repair job, a service rarely found in a small auto repair shop. We work with people especially if there is a safety issue, said Cheryl, Toms wife and the business office manager. As long as a customer can take care of the cost for parts, we will work with them on payments for labor. Precision Complete Auto care is located in Pasco Lutz on US 41, just north of the Dale Mabry apex. The shop was previously Euro Motors, which was in business for three years before the January 2012 purchase by Tom and Mike. We liked the shops central location and good visibility off US 41, said Cheryl. Plus, we see a lot of business resurgence in this area and believe the economy here is positioned to really take off. The Lutz location also works well personally for both owners because they live in the community and wanted a business close to home. Toms family live in Sable Ridge off Collier Parkway in Land O Lakes and Mike and his wife, Tanja, live in Lexington Oaks in Wesley Chapel.

Customers soon become lifelong friends at The Greenery Nursery The Greenery Nursery and Garden Center5104 N. Land O Lakes Blvd. Land O Lakes, FL 34639 Phone: 813-996-9821 Fax: 813-996-9827 www.TheGreenery ofTampaBay.com Paid AdverisementApril 10 is second anniversary of the Land O Lakes garden centerWill Martinez has a gift for remembering names of customers and the plants that grow in their gardens. When I see a returning customer, I visualize a diagram of their yard in my head and can remember what plants they have bought from our nursery, said Will, owner of The Greenery Nursery and Garden Center in Land O Lakes. Wills uncanny memory and attention to detail are evidence of how much he loves his customers and the nursery business. Ive been doing this for over 25 years and I still wake up every morning excited to go to work, said Will. Will is celebrating the second anniversary of The Greenery later this month. He opened his business on US 41, located just south of the Land O Lakes Post Office, on April 10, 2010 after working alongside his parents at two successful nurseries the family owned in Hillsborough County. Some of the plants at The Greenery genetically go back almost 40 years to his fathers first location, William Nursery on Hutchinson Road in Lutz. Orelso and Maria Martinez opened that nursery in 1974 and named the business after their son, who was then just two years old. I grew up in this business and still run into customers who remember me as the boy who hauled plants for my dad at William Nursery, said Will. Perhaps its because of Wills strong family connections and deep respect for his parents that he treats every customer with similar respect and as extended members of his family. I want people to know me and my staff personally, just like we want to know about them and their families, said Will. When Will went out on his own and opened The Greenery, he vowed to bring back the mom-and-pop atmosphere he grew up with at William Nursery a philosophy that believes customers will become lifelong friends if you treat them like family. It is apparent customers consider Will and his staff as friends. Each year between 400 and 500 attend The Greenerys annual pig roast and family celebration, which includes food and fun things to do for the entire family. Many customers come to The Greenery after purchasing a foreclosed or short-sale home. These folks have gotten a great price on their home and are ready to invest in their new property by putting in quality landscaping, said Will. Responding to customer requests, this year The Greenery is expanding into hard-scaping material, such as boulders, flagstone, gravel and rock. We are a one-stop shop where customers can get all of their plant material and everything else they need for their home landscaping projects, said Will. Will credits The Greenerys success in its first two years to his dedicated staff and their amazing knowledge of plants and landscaping. Heading up his team is Raul Santiago, a skilled nurseryman who has worked with Will for12 years. Raul has an extensive horticultural knowledge and a gift for listening to customers and coming up with solutions to their problems, said Will. Will and Raul promise customers four things when they buy from The Greenery: Hand-chosen, quality plants that are locally grown. Many varieties are drought and freeze resistant. Competitive prices that are almost always less than big box stores. Expert advice from professionals who have decades of nursery experience. A meticulously clean environment that is enjoyable to browse and shop. Raul and I hand select all of our plant materials and take great pride in their consistency in size, color, and overall appearance, said Will. If a plant doesnt meet our standards, then it should not be in anyones garden. When they are not working, Will and Raul are dedicated family men. Will and his wife Yesmin have been married 13 years and are parents to 7-year-old Anthony, a first grader at Lutz Elementary, and 5-year-old Marissa, who attends pre-school at Lutz Learning Center. Raul and his wife Reyna are also parents to two young children, sons Daniel and Raul Jr. The Santiago family lives in Dade City. We are proud of our families and proud of our customers, said Will. We want more than anything for our customers to become our friends and for them to trust us to help them create a beautiful landscape for their home to enjoy and to share with their friends, families and neighbors. Will Martinez (left), owner of The Greenery, and his sales manager, Raul Santiago. Anthony, age 7 and Marisa, age 5, are the children of owners Will and Yesmin Martinez.CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE An unseasonable warm spring has parents looking for fun, safe and airconditioned activities for young children who need to run off excess energy.Parents need look no further than Jump-In Inflatable Party Center, which has six commercial-grade inflatable with bounces, slides and obstacles for youngsters ages 9 months to 12 years. It also has two party rooms for private birthday parties and other celebrations.If a child can crawl, they can play in our bounce houses, said co-owner Joey Hendricks, himself a parent of an active 2year-old daughter. We have Mothers groups here during, with moms crawling and playing alongside their baby, and in the evenings we have pre-teens and church groups going crazy bouncing, playing ping pong and dancing. Unlike bounce centers in Tampa, adults who play alongside their children or who simply want to watch are always free at Jump-In. Joey, his wife Erika, and Joeys sister, Bonnie Wilske, became owners of Jump-In on March 1. Bonnie and Joey work together day times at the business and are supported by Erika and other family members evenings and weekends. It was Joey who first learned that the Zephyrhills business was for sale. I came in to play with my daughter and learned that the business was for sale, said Joey. I thought it was a tremendous business opportunity and something needed by parents looking for something to entertain and exercise their children in a safe and cool environment, said Joey. Birthday parties reign at Jump-In, especially over weekends, because the center is open both Saturday and Sunday. Its two large private party rooms are colorful and clean and perfect for a group of 15 to 26 people. Families rent a party room for a twohour block during regular bounce sessions, but additional hours can be purchased. They are very flexible and creative to individual party needs. Jump-In allows families to bring in their own birthday cake and food (but not beverages), unlike most offsite locations for birthday parties. If a family prefers, they can bring in a caterer for their party as well. We want to make our parties as affordable as possible and letting families bring in their own food is a real help, said Bonnie. Birthday packages for 13 kids (the birthday child is always free) begin at $169. Open bounce is $8 per child for a two-hour session, with no charge for accompanying adults. Groups of 20 kids or more can bounce for just $6 per session. Jump-In is open Wednesday through Sunday with regularly scheduled bounce sessions: Wednesday and Thursday: 10:30 to 12:30, 1:30 to 3:30 and 6:30 to 8:30 Friday: 10:30 to 12:30 open bounce, 1:30 to 3:30, 4 to 6 and 7 to 9 Saturday and Sundays: private parties during the day and 6 to 8 open bounce. (No age limit for open bounce.) Sessions may vary because of school holidays and special events, so we recommend calling ahead or checking that weeks schedule on our website, said Bonnie. Jump-In is just 15 minutes from SR 54 and I-75, located on the west side of Zephyrhills. It is the closest inflatable center for families in Wesley Chapel, Land O Lakes, Zephyrhills and Dade City. www.jumpinfun.net813-788-348435938 S.R. 54 Zephyrhills, FL33541 JUMP-IN INFLATABLES IS FUN,SAFE AND COOLPLACE FOR KIDSCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 WATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHESALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHESWATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONSWATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHES All-Car Auto Repair Open: Monday Friday 8am-5pm Saturday 9am-2pm21105 Leonard Road Lutz (1 BLOCK SOUTH OF SR 54 ON US 41 IN CITY ELECTRIC CENTRE)813-406-4444 The Experts you can TRUST!

MaketheCall.DontMissaBeat. Tolearnmore,visitWomensHealth.gov/HeartAttack It all started with an observation she made at home. Fifth-grader Alex Kimball simply didnt like the way a sponge smelled after her mom used it to clean off a counter in her Wesley Chapel home.The 11-year-old wondered how to disinfect sponges,and her curiosity led to a prototype of a device that would do just that. Her model was an aluminum box with a place for the sponge and an LED light, which would become a UV light to kill germs if the invention were manufactured. Kimball entered her invention in the University of South Floridas Young Innovator Competition.Her idea,A Sweet Spot for Sponges,was a hit with the judges, landing her a first place win in the elementary school division of the contest. Snagging the top prize was no small accomplishment. The winners were selected from 14 finalists that had been culled from a record-setting field of 536 entries from eight counties.The winners were chosen based on their originality,functionality and market potential by a panel of expert and celebrity judges. The Academy at the Lakes student was thrilled by her victory.Not only did she become the first elementary student in the schools history to capture the top prize,she also won $1,000 for her school,$1,000 for herself and a mountain bike. She got such a kick out of the oversized check that she keeps it in a place of honor: hanging above her bed. The student,who said she enjoys the hands-on nature of science,recalled that the week before the winners were picked the finalists had a chance to do a practice run on their presentations. It helped a lot,she said.She was advised to ditch the scientific board shed created and replace it with one aimed more toward marketing her invention.So,she got to work. Thats when she came up with her catchphrase:Its better for the budget,better for your family,better for the environment. She reasoned that families would spend less if they could zap their sponges and use them again.Theyd also benefit if the bacteria on a sponge could be conveniently killed,and the environment would benefit because fewer sponges would end up in landfills. The winners were selected by a panel of innovation experts,including infomercial pioneer Kevin Harrington,the CEO of TVGoods.com;Home Shopping Network host Bill Green;former Bay News 9 anchor and inventor Jen Holloway and USF innovation leaders. The Young Innovator Competition was founded and is led by the non-profit corporation,Innovation Express,founded and led by Anton Hopen,a USF alumnus and Tampa patent attorney. Young inventor enjoys sciencesaid.I got a watering can and literally had to crawl under the tree spilling the water everywhere,getting pine needles in my hair, sap all over my clothes and ornaments were falling off the tree. So I said,Why not use something thats already on the Christmas tree to water it? Thats how the ornament came. The invention itself was only part of the process.Burcaw had to market it and give a presentation to judges on why its a good buy. Does this inventor see a future in business as well? Of course.I really want to make more and sell them,she said.I have already made some for some of my friends.Also,I think the Tree IV would make a great gift a perfect early Christmas gift.I do want to sell them to bigger retailers and not just from my house.Maybe like Wal-Mart or Kmart or Walgreens simple stores like that. Keeping things simple proved to be effective in a victory that caught Burcaw off guard. I was very surprised that I won,she said.If you actually look at my invention its a very simple idea just an ornament with a tube attached to it that anyone can use. But I think its a very helpful invention and I think thats mainly why I won.For example,the elders with back pain wont have to bend over anymore. One person not surprised by Burcaws victory is her science teacher,Jane Gucciardo,who had three students among the finalists. Katie is an amazing young lady with a very bright future ahead of her,said Gucciardo.I like for my students to be creative problem solvers and Katie stands out because she thought of a way to solve a problem with the Tree IV. Her entry in this competition was a testament to the kind of student she is, developing several prototypes before perfecting her final product. Burcaw isnt the only one at Martinez to benefit from her recognition,as her $1,000 prize was matched in the form of a grant for the same amount toward the schools STEM (science,technology,engineering and mathematics) program. As for Burcaw,the success of the Tree IV has her motivated to keep the ideas flowing. I have made a whole series of IVs,she said,including a similar concept that fills a dog bowl.In my future I definitely want to keep making more inventions.This was an amazing experience for me and I want it to keep going. And dont be surprised that the girl with the practical invention will be spending her award money in a practical manner. I am going to use the $1,000 to pursue my invention and even make a commercial, Burcaw said. So,instead of judging herself against others,she likes to compare herself against her previous achievements. Shes the first to admit she doesnt always succeed.There are times when she errs on a skill she performed well in practice. It happens to everyone,Ng said.That doesnt deter her:On your next competition,you say,Im going to nail it. Shes willing to work hard,practicing 16 hours a week in four-hour sessions on Mondays,Wednesdays,Thursdays and Fridays. Typically,gymnasts at Tampa Bay Rhythmics stretch for an hour then work on their skills,which involve using a rope,a ribbon,a hoop,a ball and clubs. Typical rope movements include swings, circles,figure-eights,releases,wrapping around a part of the body,tosses and jumps through the rope.The ribbon is attached to a stick and must be kept in motion showing patterns,such as spirals,snakes and figure eights.It also is used in the air and on the floor. In the ball exercise,gymnasts roll,throw, bounce,catch and trap the ball while trying to make it appear to be an extension of their body.The hoop,similar to a hula hoop, is decorated with tape to match the athletes leotard.The hoop can be circled, rolled,spun and tossed.A gymnast can pass over or through the hoop.One typical movement is the boomerang,rolling the hoop forward with a snap of the wrist to make it roll back. Ngs mom,Angie,makes the trek between Wesley Chapel and Riverview to take her daughter to practices.She has also traveled to meets throughout Florida and in other states. The sport requires dedication,said Angie Ng,characterizing many moves the gymnasts make as ER moves.By that,the nurse practitioner means that ordinary people trying the moves would wind up in the emergency room. Ng began doing rhythmic gymnasts three years ago,after trying artistic gymnastics and learning she wasnt a very good tumbler.She likes rhythmic gymnastics because it incorporates dance and involves no tumbling. She competes for Tampa Bay Rhythmics and is coached by Galina Burns and the gyms owner,Tyana Marlowe.In her first competition of the year at the Suncoast Sports Festival in January at the Florida State Fairgrounds,Ng placed first all-around in her level in her age division. Like artistic gymnastics and figure skating,rhythmic gymnasts are judged on their technical skills and artistry. Theyll judge you by expression if you match the musics mood.If you never smile and your routine is all happy,that could give you a deduction,said Ng,who prefers performing to upbeat music. Its important to connect with judges, too,the 12-year-old said.You have to make eye contact with the judges and smile! CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800

Community SportsCommunity SportsBefore the season began,the Steinbrenner baseball team wanted to prove that it could make history by winning the first district championship in the programs three-year history.That mission took one step forward to accomplishment after the Warriors (13-6,7-1 district) knocked off Freedom 2-0 at home on April 5 to clinch the No.1 seed in the Class 7A-District 9 tournament in two weeks.Its pretty sick,said Steinbrenner senior pitcher Chris Williams.You know its a big accomplishment,but its just the beginning for us. Williams,a Saint Leo University signee, tossed a complete game shutout without allowing a walk while striking out seven batters en route to his fifth win of the year. Both teams combined for five scoreless innings to start the contest before a pair of defensive miscues gave the Warriors the games only runs. In the sixth inning,Patriots (13-5,5-3) senior pitcher Kyle Schindler plunked second baseman Christian Diaz on the back to put the senior aboard with no outs.After first baseman Chase Turners single to center field moved Diaz to second base, Warriors third baseman Gerald Bautista hit a ground ball that was thrown over the head of Freedom first baseman Jake Kitchen to score Diaz. The bleeding continued as designated hitter Cole Gordon knocked in Bautista on a Kitchen fielding error. Both pitchers threw the ball outstanding and it just so happened that we made a couple of mistakes there in the last inning on the bases and in the field that cost us, said Freedom coach A.J.Leppla. The Patriots wouldnt go down without a fight though,as they strung together three straight hits to quickly load the bases with no outs in the seventh inning. Williams got some help from his catcher, Jesse Haney,who picked off Freedom second baseman Johnny Keigher for the first out.The pitcher took care of the final two outs on strikeouts. Chris had thrown so well and he was the guy we were letting get out of it,said Steinbrenner coach John Crumbley.A couple guys got base hits and we were just hoping that we got a good play here and good play there and we did.It was big. Schindler,who allowed just four hits and struck out seven batters,said he felt good about his arm and credited his counterpart.Ive had a little trouble with my control and I wasnt throwing as hard as I usually was,but I definitely made the adjustment today and I felt great,Schindler said.He then added,Just a great game by their pitcher.The Warriors did suffer a loss in the contest.Senior shortstop Stone Ramsey,who is hitting .317 with 11 RBI,broke his wrist after being hit with a pitch in the sixth inning.He was taken out of the game in the seventh after failing to complete a play. The Patriots still have the No.2 seed in the 7A-9 tournament at Gaither and have also secured the first winning season in the programs nine-year history.They play Wiregrass Ranch in the district semifinals, with the winner advancing to the championship on April 26 at 7 p.m. Steinbrenner plays the winner of game between Gaither and Chamberlain in the first round of the 7A-9 tournament. The Warriors host Hillsborough on April 10 at 7 p.m.,before traveling to George M. Steinbrenner Field to play Sickles at 4 p.m. Freedom hosts Durant on April 10 at 7 p.m. The Steinbrenner girls track team has been a force during its young history. The Warriors were district runners-up during their inaugural season in 2010 and ran away with the Class 2A-District 9 championship last year.Senior Alexis Wright,who came from Gaither as a sophomore,relishes the opportunity to shape the fledgling programs perception. Its been a pleasure to come in and be able to help set the standard for what Steinbrenner track athletes should be able to do,said Wright,who won the 2A state title in the 100-meter hurdles last year. Having the opportunity to define the word warriorhas been extraordinary.I left Gaither to have this opportunity,but I never dreamed it could have been like this. Senior thrower Melisa Stankovich said the team has even more drive to defend their title. Were all more focused because we have a target on our back,Stankovich said. Weve got to keep up our reputation and show that we still want to get a title. Most of Steinbrenners top athletes are back to defend that crown after another year of training with veteran coach Ladd Baldwin,who spent 12 years at Gaither and six at Chamberlain before starting the Warriorsprogram. The heart of the team is intact and healthy,and weve added a couple nice pieces,Baldwin said.As coaches its up to us to put the kids in the right position. Along with that youre always trying to maintain the program,so were taking a lot of time to build the freshmen and sophomores up to take over when the seniors are gone.Junior thrower Jessica Weatherman said a big part of the teams quick success has been how Baldwin views all 17 scoring events.Were all around a team,Weatherman said. We dont focus on one event to get our points. We have a variety all over.Coach Baldwin makes a good team,and I think were even better than last year. A big part of building a complete team is finding the right place for each athlete. Some events you just dont have,but you try kids in different spots to see what they do best,Baldwin said. Alexis wasnt a hurdler. One day we tried her there and now shes the state champ. Junior Jessica Brewer also had to find her way to her best events.She started doing the hurdles but never really took to it.We were walking around the track one day,my teammate Sarah Eppler,coach Baldwin and myself,Brewer said.Sarah said do you know the steps for tripleand coach Baldwin said Ive been meaning to try you in that.The triple is a lot like something Brewer had done growing up.She won a state title in the vault while a level 5 gymnast in fifth grade. She was just a natural,Baldwin sad.Her first meet was the Western Conference American Division and advanced to the county games and got sixth there.She works hard every day. Finding the right event is only half the battle.Baldwin said he also strives to keep his athletes as focused on track as possible during the season. A lot of the girls who join do it because they got cut from other sports,Baldwin said.Most just want to hang out with their friends.Once they get out here its our job to develop that fire inside of them. Junior twins Salina and Lauren Garris are prime examples. The biggest thing is I try a lot harder now than when I was a freshman,Lauren said.I want to be better when before I was just doing this because friends did it. Salina added,Coach Baldwin started to inspire me to do better.When I saw times getting better that pushed me to try harder. In every race I want to have a better time. For Salina,better times arent just for herself. I know my times wouldnt be as good if I didnt have my team running with me, Salina said.Running with your team is a big deal,and they make you want to run on days you dont feel like running.I dont feel like I qualify for anything individually.I feel like Im just helping my team. The Warriors will compete at the 3A-8 meet at Gaither on April 19 starting at noon. The Carrollwood Day School (CDS) girls tennis team won the first district championship in school history at the Class 1A-District 8 tournament on April 5. The Patriots scored 21 to claim the title, rolling to a seven-point victory against runner-up Tampa Prep. We have had an exciting season,said CDS coach Susan Most.The girls have worked very hard to attain their goal of winning the district championship.We are all very proud of their accomplishments. The Patriots were led by the FitzRandolph sisters,freshman Jacquelyn and seventh-grader Lauren,who teamed up to win the No.1 doubles final for the second straight year to qualify for the state tournament.The duo finished as 1A doubles state runner-up a year ago.Jacquelyn also won the No.1 final 6-3,6-1 over Academy at the LakesDaniela Moreno.The sistersolder brother,Eric,won the No.1 singles final for the boys 2-6,7-6 (7-5), 6-4,but CDS finished third in team points.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE An intense passion and unfaltering belief in treating the whole person has taken Dr. Tom Myers on an unexpected journey. In 20 years Dr. Myers has been an athletic trainer of high school and college students, spent six years in Lima, Peru providing care to some of Perus poorest people and opened a successful chiropractic center in Lutz that focuses on identifying the root causes of patients issues. Ive always believe in going above and beyond in whatever I do, said Dr. Myers. Dr. Myers earned degrees in exercise science and athletic training before moving from the Midwest to St. Petersburg in 1994 to work as an athletic trainer with area youth. For eight years I watched my young patients be treated for injuries with traditional means and saw the same repetitive patterns with, at times, limited results, said Dr. Myers. I came to believe that there must be a better way to help athletes prevent and recover from injuries. Dr. Myerss quest to find an alternative approach led him to Parker College of Chiropractic, where he graduated in 2000. Along the way he met his future wife, Laura Bohannon-Myers. Marrying Tom has been one adventure after another, said Laura, a Tampa native whose parents are well-known local realtors, Doug and Annette Bohannon. A year after we were married, Tom called out of the blue and asked how I felt about moving to Peru. He had been invited to spend a year providing care to some of the poorest people in Lima. A few weeks later we were off to a new life, new culture and new language, said Laura. Neither Laura nor Tom spoke any Spanish before they arrived in what was to be their home for the next six years. But that did not hinder their commitment. While in Peru the couple became fluent in Spanish and opened two chiropractic offices. Tom performed more than 60,000 chiropractic adjustments to mostly poor, indigent people. But it was the street children and orphans who stole the Myers hearts. These children lived in houses where the walls were made of straw mats and the roofs were thatched or a blue tarp, said Laura. Because Peru has little rain and no running water in poor areas, children were very dusty and their clothes filthy. Their shoes, if they had any, consisted of a sole and string to hold them together. To help these kids, the Myers founded an organization that provided shoes for more than 5,000 poor children. This love for children soon transpired into children of their own. Two of their three sons, now ages 9, 6, and 4, were born in Peru. The Myers returned to the U.S. in 2007 and settled in Wesley Chapel to be close to Lauras family. They opened their practice soon afterward and recently moved to a larger office to accommodate their growing patient list. Chiropractic mixed with the untimely death of his mother has lead Dr. Myers to look for the root causes of many of todays frequent ailments. This discovery process is done by the use of a new discipline called Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine searches for the underlying cause or causes of someones symptoms, said Dr. Myers. After we understand what is causing a patients symptoms, we develop a holistic plan that incorporates chiropractic intervention, natural supplementation and lifestyle adjustments. We have grown our practice primarily by word of mouth, because our patients see and feel the results, said Dr. Myers. We offer a warm and loving atmosphere and stop at nothing to help patients and their families. Dr.Myers will be a guest speaker at Nutrition Smart in Wesley Chapel on April 19th at 7pm.The topic will be ADD/ADHD & Autism A Natural Approach.Call 813.973.8883 to reserve your seat.A Closer Look At World Class Health Center World Class Health Center23900 S.R. 54, Suite 101, Lutz, FL33559 (next to Big Apple Bagels)813-973-8883 www.WorldClassHealthCenter.com BECAUSE LIFE IS RICHER WHEN YOU CAN HEAR IT Request an appointment online at: www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Our Services Include:Hearing testing for all ages btntffbrtrttnttnt t813.973.8400Call us for a FREE listening demonstration today JODY C. PIANIN, AU.Dbtnft Doctor of Audiology CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 Wiregrass Ranch reached the final of the Pasco Varsity Spring Break Baseball Tournament for the second straight year. Unfortunately for the tournament host the results were the same as in the events inaugural year in 2011.Last season crosstown rival Wesley Chapel defeated the Bulls (15-5) in the championship,while Mitchell (13-7) picked up a 4-2 W on April 6. Wiregrass Ranch had to settle for its second runner-up trophy,but coach Jeff Swymer said playing four games in as many days made his team stronger. Any time you can play in a tournament like this it creates camaraderie amongst your kids,Swymer said.You find out what kind of depth you have as far as on the mound.It allows you to experiment some with guys in different positions.Its great to create momentum into districts coming up. Swymer and the Bulls turned to lefthander Ryan Kopenski to start the contest. The senior threw 30 pitches in three relief innings to pick up a 5-4 win over Sunlake in the semifinals the night before. He sent me a text this morning that said he wanted the ball and that he felt fine, Swymer said.I gave him the ball and he pitched out of his mind. Tammy Bullock of RBI Baseball and Wiregrass Ranch baseball coach Jeff Swymer had an idea to recreate Tampa Bays biggest tournament. The inspiration is the Saladino Baseball Tournament,which takes place each spring break in Hillsborough County.The event generally includes all of the Hillsboroughs 27 public schools to declare the unofficial county champion. That idea created the Pasco Varsity Spring Break Baseball Tournament last year. We volunteered to put this tournament on when Tammy talked about getting this started,said Swymer,who was the pitching coach at Riverview for eight years.I wanted to do something in Pasco like the Saladino to give these kids a feel for what its like. Bullocks son,Billy,was coached by Swymer at Riverview.The former University of Florida closer is now with the Atlanta BravesAA team in Mississippi. Bullock thanked Swymer,his coaches and players for helping put the event on.The coaches were here on the 8 a.m.game days at 5:30 in the morning getting the field ready,and then we were here until 11 at night,Swymer said. Theres a lot that went into putting these 22 games on.I can tell you the coaches are all ready for a beer and some sleep.The Sunlake junior varsity baseball team defeated Wiregrass Ranch 9-1 to win the Pasco JV Spring Break Tournament at Zephyrhills on April 5. The Seahawks (7-5) defeated Central 11-10 and Wesley Chapel 9-8 en route to the final.David Castillo pitched a complete game for Sunlake in the championship,allowing three hits while striking out nine.The offense recorded 12 hits,including a 3-for-4 effort for Omar Cala.Connor Kallenborn,Collin Armstrong and Johnathan Eales each had two RBI.Tradition grows in second year Pasco Spring Break Tournament in the books

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com Kopenski didnt allow a hit until the fourth inning,but gave up an unearned run in the third after hitting Joe Koehler.He scored after a pickoff attempt got past first baseman Joel Marin.Wiregrass Ranch still led 2-1 after scoring a pair of unearned runs in the top of the third. Marcus Guzman walked on five pitches,stole second,advanced to third on a Marin groundout and found the plate after Zack Drury reached on a strikeout with two down.Drury continued the small ball for the Bulls,stealing second and third and scoring on an Alex Goebel single. Kopenski got into a jam in the fourth. With one out and runners on second and third Mitchell pitcher Garrett Kriston hit a fast-falling liner to right field.Guzman sprinted in to make a diving catch,got to his feet and fired a laser toward home to nail Blake Heart at the plate. It was a great play,and honestly I thought that was going to shift the momentum,Swymer said.Their pitcher came out and got a 1-2-3 inning after that. Kriston allowed one hit during his last three innings while recording three of his nine strikeouts,including Wiregrass Ranchs last two batters. The Mustangs got two runs,one earned, in the fifth and added an insurance tally in the sixth.Kopenski used 78 pitches in 5.2 innings before Drury came in for the last out. Kopenski didnt have his best stuff,but hes a guy who everyone on this team trusts with the ball,Swymer said. Land OLakes (15-5) won the consolation game 13-3 in six innings against Sunlake (8-11). The Gators racked up nine hits and six walks.Alex Reynolds drove in four,three on a double and another on a sacrifice fly, while Brad Hencke had four RBI of his own including a three-run home run.Second baseman Dylan Harris had three doubles, drove in two and scored two runs. Pitcher Jake Rawls worked the first 4.1 innings for Land OLakes,giving up two runs in the winning effort.Harris threw the final 2.2 innings to record the save. Pascos Robbie Hanlon won the home run derby by hitting eight in the first round and six in the final.Land OLakesJoey Martinez and Koehler each hit four to tie for second. Sunlake unlimited weightlifter Nate McCoole has been on a mission to win the first state championship for the fifth-year program since finishing fourth at the finals last season. The senior showed he is on the right track by tying a Pasco County record in the bench press by posting 450 pounds at the Class 2A-District 4 meet at Springstead High on April 4.The lift ties the mark put up by Wesley Chapels Hunter Joyer last year. McCoole,who made it to states as a sophomore and junior,also lifted 300 in the clean and jerk.His 750 total won him the unlimited district title, earning him his third trip to the finals. Sunlake also won the team district championship,scoring 48 points to best Ocala Vanguard by seven.Five Seahawks won individual titles including McCoole. Kyle Fraser,who took sixth at states last year,won the 154-pound weight class by totaling 545.Jack Holloway hoisted 380 to claim the 119 division,while James Brooks (199 division) and Jerome Samuels (238 division) captured first place by lifting 620 and 615,respectively. All the district champions advance to states along with the next four best lifters in each weight class.The 2A state meet is on April 21 at the Kissimmee Civic Center starting at 10:30 a.m. McCoole ties county record SPORTS Tickets have no cash value.

Liquor items are only available at Publix Liquors. Freedom softball coach Autum Hernandez says it regularly during practice.It doesnt matter what the drill is or the position of the players shes talking to.It applies to everything for the Patriots (10-4) do it with a purpose. The whole coaching staff has told them with everything do it with a purpose,Hernandez said.If youre not playing in a game watch someone in the field with a purpose.When you go up to bat have a purpose.When youre on second base have a purpose.Weve been stressing that and letting them know they need to think about where theyre trying to hit the ball or where to throw it. For the fourth-year Freedom coach its about forming something that will last beyond one season. We talk about building a program here;not just a team,Hernandez said.Its about creating an atmosphere where kids at Freedom want to play softball. That mentality has led the Patriots to one of the best starts in the programs nine-year history including clinching the No.2 spot in the Class 7A-District 9 tournament;their best seeding ever.The ranking puts them in position to make their first postseason,but they arent looking past any game. We just focus on the next game,said senior first baseman Katie Gresham.If we do that then the postseason will take care of itself. Gresham admits getting to regionals would be the highlight of her four years on the squad. I dont even think I have words for what that would mean,Gresham said.A lot is all I can think of.It would be exciting to be the first team to get a banner. We dont even have one,so to get one would be amazing. Freedoms rise in the district standings comes after losing five seniors from last year. I was thinking it was going to be a rebuilding year,said sophomore outfielder Ashley Wilson.Weve definitely surpassed that.The team is doing awesome. Gresham is the squads only senior,but the Patriots have not lacked leadership. The thing is we all work together really well,Gresham said.We dont have one leader;we lead together. Freedom has also benefitted from a strong freshmen class,including pitcher Grace Street and catcher Kayla Maczuga. The duo said they have treated high school ball like every other softball team theyve been on,which has helped with the transition. In practice we try to get everything down right so we do it right in games, Street said.Sometimes it works,but sometimes it doesnt.Thats how softball works. You have to do the right things in practice and things will work out. Street has a team-high .520 batting average and 16 RBI while posting an 10-4 record,2.11 ERA and 64 strikeouts.Maczuga is also hitting a robust .386 with nine RBI. The freshmen are two of six Patriots hitting better than .280.Overall the squad is batting .338 with a .407 on-base percentage. Freedom is posting eye-popping stats and racking up wins,but things started rocky.The Patriots lost their first two district games by a combined score of 14-6. Their third 7A-9 contest was against perennial powerhouse Chamberlain (18-2), a program that has made the playoffs 13 of the last 14 years while winning the Class 5A state championship in 2003.The Chiefs eliminated Freedom from the postseason last year with a 4-3 win in the district semifinals. The Patriots went out and handed the Chiefs their first loss of the season 5-4.It was also their first victory ever over Chamberlain in six attempts. My sister (Kimmy) played here for four years,so I saw Chamberlain play them a bunch of times,Maczuga said.Beating Chamberlain for the first time was really big for us. Freedom lost the rematch on March 30, but Hernandez said that first W helped change the way her players look at themselves. Chamberlain is always tough, Hernandez said.They were a tough team when I was in high school (at Robinson). Chamberlain is what everyone strives to be in our county.I think that being able to compete with them was good for this team. They werent in awe of playing Chamberlain.To them its become another game. Wilson added,When you see Chamberlain,theyre a program.Thats what we want to be like.We beat them this year, but we want to be able to beat them not just this year,but every year because weve become a program too. The 7A-9 tournament is at Steinbrenner, with the championship on April 19 at 7 p.m. The Patriots host Durant on April 10 before traveling to Riverview for the regular season finale.Both games start at 7 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches Freedom rosterNo.Player Pos.Yr. 1 Rachel Carlson OF So. 2 Kayla Prisco OF Fr. 3 Antonia Tirado-Loomis OF Fr. 5 Maria Horvath OF/2B So. 6 Nina Jackson OF Fr. 7 Katie Gresham 1B Sr. 8 Savanna Chavez 3B Jr. 9 Abby Ryan OF Fr. 10 Caroline Whiteside 2B Jr. 13 Alexys Salamin OF Fr. 14 Ashley Wilson OF So. 18 Caitlin Harper SS Jr. 19 Kayla Maczuga C Fr. 25 Grace Street P Fr.SPORTS Patriots play with a purposeCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com Freedom softball pitcher Grace Street and catcher Kayla Maczuga appear like veterans. They are both batting better than .350 and have played in every inning of every game for the Patriots (10-4).The two make the right decisions and execute their plays and pitches without drawing attention to themselves. They sound like four-year starters,but both are freshmen still getting used to life in high school. Theyve really stepped up,said sophomore outfielder Ashley Wilson.We needed them to step up and theyve done that. Grace is pitching and hitting like a senior and so is Kayla at the plate.I give them both a round of applause for what theyve done. There was a lot of pressure for both to perform this season.Freedom lost its catcher and all of its pitchers to graduation or transfers,forcing Grace to throw every pitch of every inning this season;all received by Maczuga behind the plate. They have responded. Grace,who said her best pitches are a curveball and changeup,is hitting a teamhigh .520 with 16 RBI while posting an 10-4 record,2.11 ERA and 64 strikeouts.Maczuga is batting .386 with nine RBI. I have to remind myself pretty much constantly that Grace is a freshman,said Patriots coach Autum Hernandez.Shes leading our team in batting.A couple games ago against Gaither she had five RBI.She has definitely put a quiet spark in the team.She comes to practice every day and puts in the work without saying much.She never complains.Shes not playing like a freshman. We expect a lot from our catcher,continued Hernandez,who was a catcher at Robinson.To us its never the pitchers fault;its the catchers fault.Kayla takes a lot of that brunt and handles it well.She sets high expectations for herself.When she makes a mistake she harps on herself.We dont have to say much to her about it. The duo has benefited from having some history together.They both played on the U10 New Tampa Spirit,an AAU travel team. Its been very helpful,Street said. Getting to know your catcher and a catcher getting to know their pitcher is very key. I trust her.I trust that shes going to catch anything I throw.Whenever a pitch goes wild I know shell be there. Maczuga said the talks that happen naturally between a pitcher and catcher also helped form a bond. Shes a very quiet person,Maczuga said. She doesnt talk constantly to everyone on the team,but when were pitching and catching well talk about how things are going.I think those conversations have helped. Maczuga has been impressed with Streets work ethic. Shes doing really great,Maczuga said. Shes working as hard as juniors and seniors,and shes keeping up with them.It makes everyone else want to work harder. Hernandez is happy the large question marks around the pitcher and catcher positions have been removed and replaced by consistency. Its really nice to have them do what theyve done at such a young age, Hernandez said.We lost a lot from last year, and theyve brought a lot of stability to the team.

FAMILYDENTISTRY FREE EXAM, $81 CLEANING, $25 FULL SET DIGITAL X-RAYS OVER $250 VALUE NEW PATIENTS ONLY By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comWhen 12-year-old Kristen Ng arrives at a rhythmic gymnastics competition,she has two goals in mind. One is based on her mother's advice:"My mom tells me to just have fun." The other is a personal aim to improve in every performance. "I don't think it's about competition.It's about how you think you did,''said the Wesley Chapel girl,who just returned from an international competition in Ohio, where she placed first allaround in her level in her age division. The competition drew more than 350 athletes,representing 47 clubs from 19 states and seven countries, including Ecuador,Ukraine, Belgium,Japan and Canada. During the event,Ng recalls wiping her sweaty palms on a towel,jumping up and down to settle her nerves and then going onto the floor to give it her all. "I dance.And the rest is a blur.I melt into the music and smile,"she noted in an email after the event. "I almost cried on the podium."Ng,who attends John Long Middle School,said her motivation is to improve her own skills.She reasons that it's possible to win even when not performing well because other competitors are not at the top of their game.And,it is possible to lose despite turning in a personal best because competitors have superior skill.By John MortonLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentA decorative touch during the holidays is common.Can the same be said for practicality? Katie Burcaw,a sixth-grader from Lutz's Martinez Middle,managed to come up with both in her creation of a gift called the "Tree IV" a hydration system in the form of an ornament for the family Christmas tree. And now she has cashed in on her cool idea with a cool grand,as her creativity and ingenuity landed her one of the three $1,000 top prizes at the Young Innovator Competition at USF's Patel Center in February.More than 500 entries were judged and Burcaw,12,was picked as having the best invention among the five middle school finalists.Sixteen finalists in all represented students at the elementary,middle and high school levels. Using a premise as simple as making the most of gravity,Burcaw's invention allows a person to water a tree through a strategically placed ornament that has a clear tube running down to the tree's base. And there's nothing quite like an invention that assists the inventor.For Burcaw, there will be no more precarious trips to the bottom of the tree,of which she had tired. "As the oldest of four siblings it is my responsibility to water the Christmas tree,"she Kristen Ng,12, creates a spiral effect using a ribbon while making her way down the mat to the beat of music at Tampa Bay Rhythmics. (Photos by Fred Bellet, Community Newsphoto Service) Katie Burcaw wowed the judges with her innovative IV for Christmas trees.

Ask About our VIP programEarn points toward a FREE Cleaning NO CONTRACTSBy John MortonThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentTim Taylor and Danny Blasciak aren't in the military,but the fishing buddies don't mind playing captain for a day on the high seas. The two Lutz residents will be volunteering their boats and their fishing skills again this year when they help host military personnel in the 2012 Take a Soldier Fishing Tournament,which will be held May 12 with a launch from Port Hudson Marina. The event is organized by B&G Fishing Charters,Tampa Bay Inshore Chartersand the U.S.Special Operations Command Care Coalition,but volunteers like Taylor and Blasciak serve as the backbone of the operation. "It's an honor for me,"said Taylor,who will take a handful of soldiers on his 20-foot fishing boat for the fourth year."I thank them every time they come aboard my boat. "We tend to take our leisure time here at home for granted and forget that our service men and women don't get the opportunities for things as simple as fishing.I want to thank them for watching our backs." Blasciak,who was recruited by Taylor last year,will be taking his 24-foot boat out with soldiers for the second time. "It's the least I can do for them,"he said of his guests."They all had a great time last year,and whenever I hit a fish I made sure to let them reel it in.Some of them had never had the opportunity before." That included the excitement of landing a few 4-foot sharks and last year and up to 70 sea trout."They couldn't believe how much action we had,"Blasciak said. Meanwhile,many of the military guests ask to go after the larger fish. "They want to land a snook or a red fish," Taylor said,"but one year we tried for six hours without a bite.It all depends on the conditions.On the other hand,one year a female soldier on my boat caught the biggest red fish of the tournament at 22 inches.So you never do know." Either way,Taylor said the fishing is secondary to the relaxation and friendships that are made. "It's all about the camaraderie,and just getting the chance to be in a loose atmosphere means the world to these people,"he said."One year on my boat they were exchanging the special military coins they collect from every country in which they serve.A sergeant major gave one to me and I'll always treasure it.I was told later he had about 200 people who served under him and that he was a pretty important person." This year's guest list will include military personnel from as close as MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa and from as far as the Fort Benning U.S.Army post in Columbus,Ga. New this year will be the inclusion of wounded soldiers. "That may be a bit challenging,but we'll certainly accommodate them,"Taylor said. "They're the most deserving of all." With most boats holding just four or five guests,the number of invitees depends on the number of volunteers.Organizers are asking anyone with a boat to contact Scott Keith at (813) 760-6735 or Bill Palaski at (727) 423-0674.Volunteers to help serve food afterward during an awards ceremony are also needed.

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 LutzCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 5 8534 N.

Free In-Home Estimates Youll Adore Youll Adore Our Our FLOORS FLOORS The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Beef O'Brady's in Wesley Chapel will be the finish line for an Orlando-to-Tampa fundraiser April 14,when Sgt.Josh Cope pulls up after hand-cycling 100 miles to raise money to build a home for a fellow wounded veteran.The ride is sponsored by Building Homes for Heroes,a non-profit group that builds or renovates homes to meet the needs of combat wounded veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan with the goal of allowing them to live independent lives.Cope,who served in the U.S.Army and received two Purple Heart medals,will make the trek,but bicyclists can sign up to ride other distances, including the 10-mile ride to the finish.Cope's journey will start at 7 a.m.at an empty lot intended to be the home site of Iraq veteran Specialist B.J.Jackson.The finish will be celebrated at Beef O'Brady's,1660 Bruce B.Downs Blvd.before Cope visits the home of New Tampa resident,U.S.Army Sgt. Joel Tavera,a beneficiary of Building Homes for Heroes in November 2011. Cope will pedal with his hands.Cope was injured during his second deployment to Iraq in 2006,when his vehicle rolled over an explosive device.He lost both legs above the knee and seriously injured his right hand.Cope will hand cycle in a custom bike alongside bicyclists who are joining him to raised money for Jackson's home. Jackson was injured when the vehicle he was driving triggered a roadside bomb and was hit by rocket-propelled grenades.He lost both legs below the knee and suffered severe burns on his arms,legs and back.To help the healing process,he was put in a medically induced coma for a month. Tavera,a highly decorated Iraq war veteran,received his home in Grand Hampton,a North Tampa community,in November.He had endured 73 surgeries since March 12, 2008,when five rockets struck his vehicle, killing three of his friends. Medics initially thought Tavera was dead. He suffered serious head trauma,lost sight in both eyes,lost his right leg and four fingers on his left hand,and sustained critical burns to 60 percent of his body. At the time of the incident his parents, Jose and Maritza Tavera,were told that their son was the second most severely injured soldier to survive the Iraq war.Tavera was awarded the Purple Heart and Bronze Star. His home was built by William Ryan Homes and includes a water-softening system for Tavera's sensitive skin,a pool with therapy jets and a swimming exercise treadmill,and a front door that opens automatically upon Tavera's approach. For more information on Building Homes for Heroes,go to www.BuildingHomesforHeroes.org. Army Sgt. Joel Tavera, flanked by his mother and father, thanked the crowd that helped him celebrate the home he received from Building Homes for Heroes. (File photo)Help for heroes who need homes

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Providing local people an affordable alternative to servicing their vehicles is the goal for Tom and Mike, co-owners of Precision Complete Auto Care in Lutz. "We have the same scanners and new technology that dealers have and can offer our customers the same diagnostic services at a much more affordable rate," said Mike, an electrical engineer who brings an unusually high level of technical knowledge to an independent service center. Mike's engineering degree is complimented by Tom's 30 years experience an automotive mechanic. Tom has been working on cars his entire life and has just about every certification available from the National Institute for Automotive Service Excellence (ASE). "We have the diagnostic tools, technical knowledge and real world experience seldom found in a smaller shop," said Tom. "I like to share our knowledge with customers by taking them out to the shop and physically showing them what is wrong with their vehicle and what needs to be done to get them safely back on the road." In addition to their high level of competence, Mike and Tom offer outstanding customer service because they genuinely care about their clients and their safety. "People fail to remember that their vehicle is a weapon if it's not safe, it should not be put on the road, especially if they have bad brakes and tires," said Mike. "If a repair is essential, I ask customers if they would you walk around with a broken leg. We will do everything that we can to get it done so a customer and his family has a safe vehicle to drive." Precision Complete Auto offers inhouse financing on major repair job, a service rarely found in a small auto repair shop. "We work with people especially if there is a safety issue," said Cheryl, Tom's wife and the business' office manager. "As long as a customer can take care of the cost for parts, we will work with them on payments for labor." Precision Complete Auto care is located in Pasco Lutz on US 41, just north of the Dale Mabry apex. The shop was previously Euro Motors, which was in business for three years before the January 2012 purchase by Tom and Mike. "We liked the shop's central location and good visibility off US 41," said Cheryl. "Plus, we see a lot of business resurgence in this area and believe the economy here is positioned to really take off." The Lutz location also works well personally for both owners because they live in the community and wanted a business close to home. Tom's family live in Sable Ridge off Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes and Mike and his wife, Tanja, live in Lexington Oaks in Wesley Chapel.

Customers soon become lifelong friends at The Greenery Nursery The Greenery Nursery and Garden Center 5104 N. Land O’ Lakes Blvd. Land O’ Lakes, FL 34639 Phone: 813-996-9821  Fax: 813-996-9827 www. TheGreenery ofTampaBay.com Paid AdverisementApril 10 is second anniversary of the Land O’ Lakes garden centerWill Martinez has a gift for remembering names of customers and the plants that grow in their gardens. “When I see a returning customer, I visualize a diagram of their yard in my head and can remember what plants they have bought from our nursery,” said Will, owner of The Greenery Nursery and Garden Center in Land O’ Lakes. Will’s uncanny memory and attention to detail are evidence of how much he loves his customers and the nursery business. “I’ve been doing this for over 25 years and I still wake up every morning excited to go to work,” said Will. Will is celebrating the second anniversary of The Greenery later this month. He opened his business on US 41, located just south of the Land O’ Lakes Post Office, on April 10, 2010 after working alongside his parents at two successful nurseries the family owned in Hillsborough County. Some of the plants at The Greenery genetically go back almost 40 years to his father’s first location, William Nursery on Hutchinson Road in Lutz. Orelso and Maria Martinez opened that nursery in 1974 and named the business after their son, who was then just two years old. “I grew up in this business and still run into customers who remember me as the boy who hauled plants for my dad at William Nursery,” said Will. Perhaps it’s because of Will’s strong family connections and deep respect for his parents that he treats every customer with similar respect and as extended members of his family. “I want people to know me and my staff personally, just like we want to know about them and their families,” said Will. When Will went out on his own and opened The Greenery, he vowed to bring back the mom-and-pop atmosphere he grew up with at William Nursery — a philosophy that believes customers will become lifelong friends if you treat them like family. It is apparent customers consider Will and his staff as friends. Each year between 400 and 500 attend The Greenery’s annual pig roast and family celebration, which includes food and fun things to do for the entire family. Many customers come to The Greenery after purchasing a foreclosed or short-sale home. “These folks have gotten a great price on their home and are ready to invest in their new property by putting in quality landscaping,” said Will. Responding to customer requests, this year The Greenery is expanding into hard-scaping material, such as boulders, flagstone, gravel and rock. “We are a one-stop shop where customers can get all of their plant material and everything else they need for their home landscaping projects,” said Will. Will credits The Greenery’s success in its first two years to his dedicated staff and their amazing knowledge of plants and landscaping. Heading up his team is Raul Santiago, a skilled nurseryman who has worked with Will for12 years. “Raul has an extensive horticultural knowledge and a gift for listening to customers and coming up with solutions to their problems,” said Will. Will and Raul promise customers four things when they buy from The Greenery:  Hand-chosen, quality plants that are locally grown. Many varieties are drought and freeze resistant.  Competitive prices that are almost always less than big box stores.  Expert advice from professionals who have decades of nursery experience.  A meticulously clean environment that is enjoyable to browse and shop. “Raul and I hand select all of our plant materials and take great pride in their consistency in size, color, and overall appearance,” said Will. “ If a plant doesn’t meet our standards, then it should not be in anyone’s garden.” When they are not working, Will and Raul are dedicated family men. Will and his wife Yesmin have been married 13 years and are parents to 7-year-old Anthony, a first grader at Lutz Elementary, and 5-year-old Marissa, who attends pre-school at Lutz Learning Center. Raul and his wife Reyna are also parents to two young children, sons Daniel and Raul Jr. The Santiago family lives in Dade City. “We are proud of our families and proud of our customers,” said Will. “We want more than anything for our customers to become our friends and for them to trust us to help them create a beautiful landscape for their home to enjoy and to share with their friends, families and neighbors.” Will Martinez (left), owner of The Greenery, and his sales manager, Raul Santiago. Anthony, age 7 and Marisa, age 5, are the children of owners Will and Yesmin Martinez.CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 9

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE An unseasonable warm spring has parents looking for fun, safe and airconditioned activities for young children who need to run off excess energy.Parents need look no further than Jump-In Inflatable Party Center, which has six commercial-grade inflatable with bounces, slides and obstacles for youngsters ages 9 months to 12 years. It also has two party rooms for private birthday parties and other celebrations."If a child can crawl, they can play in our bounce houses," said co-owner Joey Hendricks, himself a parent of an active 2year-old daughter. "We have Mother's groups here during, with moms crawling and playing alongside their baby, and in the evenings we have pre-teens and church groups going crazy bouncing, playing ping pong and dancing." Unlike bounce centers in Tampa, adults who play alongside their children or who simply want to watch are always free at Jump-In. Joey, his wife Erika, and Joey's sister, Bonnie Wilske, became owners of Jump-In on March 1. Bonnie and Joey work together day times at the business and are supported by Erika and other family members evenings and weekends. It was Joey who first learned that the Zephyrhills business was for sale. "I came in to play with my daughter and learned that the business was for sale," said Joey. "I thought it was a tremendous business opportunity and something needed by parents looking for something to entertain and exercise their children in a safe and cool environment," said Joey. Birthday parties reign at Jump-In, especially over weekends, because the center is open both Saturday and Sunday. Its two large private party rooms are colorful and clean and perfect for a group of 15 to 26 people. Families rent a party room for a twohour block during regular bounce sessions, but additional hours can be purchased. They are very flexible and creative to individual party needs. Jump-In allows families to bring in their own birthday cake and food (but not beverages), unlike most offsite locations for birthday parties. If a family prefers, they can bring in a caterer for their party as well. "We want to make our parties as affordable as possible and letting families bring in their own food is a real help," said Bonnie. Birthday packages for 13 kids (the birthday child is always free) begin at $169. Open bounce is $8 per child for a two-hour session, with no charge for accompanying adults. Groups of 20 kids or more can bounce for just $6 per session. Jump-In is open Wednesday through Sunday with regularly scheduled bounce sessions: Wednesday and Thursday: 10:30 to 12:30, 1:30 to 3:30 and 6:30 to 8:30 Friday: 10:30 to 12:30 open bounce, 1:30 to 3:30, 4 to 6 and 7 to 9 Saturday and Sundays: private parties during the day and 6 to 8 open bounce. (No age limit for open bounce.) "Sessions may vary because of school holidays and special events, so we recommend calling ahead or checking that week's schedule on our website," said Bonnie. Jump-In is just 15 minutes from SR 54 and I-75, located on the west side of Zephyrhills. It is the closest inflatable center for families in Wesley Chapel, Land O' Lakes, Zephyrhills and Dade City. www.jumpinfun.net813-788-348435938 S.R. 54 Zephyrhills, FL33541 JUMP-IN INFLATABLES IS FUN,SAFE AND COOL'PLACE FOR KIDSCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 11 WATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHESALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHESWATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONSWATER PUMPS ALTERNATORS OIL CHANGES A/C REPAIRS TRANSMISSIONS CLUTCHES All-Car Auto Repair Open: Monday Friday 8am-5pm  Saturday 9am-2pm21105 Leonard Road Lutz  (1 BLOCK SOUTH OF SR 54 ON US 41 IN CITY ELECTRIC CENTRE) 813-406-4444 The Experts you can TRUST!

MaketheCall.DontMissaBeat. Tolearnmore,visitWomensHealth.gov/HeartAttack Gets a kick out of oversized checkBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comIt all started with an observation she made at home. Fifth-grader Alex Kimball simply didn't like the way a sponge smelled after her mom used it to clean off a counter in her Wesley Chapel home.The 11-year-old wondered how to disinfect sponges,and her curiosity led to a prototype of a device that would do just that. Her model was an aluminum box with a place for the sponge and an LED light, which would become a UV light to kill germs if the invention were manufactured. Kimball entered her invention in the University of South Florida's Young Innovator Competition.Her idea,A Sweet Spot for Sponges,was a hit with the judges, landing her a first place win in the elementary school division of the contest. Snagging the top prize was no small accomplishment. The winners were selected from 14 finalists that had been culled from a record-setting field of 536 entries from eight counties.The winners were chosen based on their originality,functionality and market potential by a panel of expert and celebrity judges. The Academy at the Lakes student was thrilled by her victory.Not only did she become the first elementary student in the school's history to capture the top prize,she also won $1,000 for her school,$1,000 for herself and a mountain bike. She got such a kick out of the oversized check that she keeps it in a place of honor: hanging above her bed. The student,who said she enjoys the hands-on nature of science,recalled that the week before the winners were picked the finalists had a chance to do a practice run on their presentations. "It helped a lot,"she said.She was advised to ditch the scientific board she'd created and replace it with one aimed more toward marketing her invention.So,she got to work. That's when she came up with her catchphrase:"It's better for the budget,better for your family,better for the environment." She reasoned that families would spend less if they could zap their sponges and use them again.They'd also benefit if the bacteria on a sponge could be conveniently killed,and the environment would benefit because fewer sponges would end up in landfills. The winners were selected by a panel of innovation experts,including infomercial pioneer Kevin Harrington,the CEO of TVGoods.com;Home Shopping Network host Bill Green;former Bay News 9 anchor and inventor Jen Holloway and USF innovation leaders. The Young Innovator Competition was founded and is led by the non-profit corporation,Innovation Express,founded and led by Anton Hopen,a USF alumnus and Tampa patent attorney. Young inventor enjoys sciencesaid."I got a watering can and literally had to crawl under the tree spilling the water everywhere,getting pine needles in my hair, sap all over my clothes and ornaments were falling off the tree. "So I said,Why not use something that's already on the Christmas tree to water it?' That's how the ornament came." The invention itself was only part of the process.Burcaw had to market it and give a presentation to judges on why it's a good buy. Does this inventor see a future in business as well? "Of course.I really want to make more and sell them,"she said."I have already made some for some of my friends.Also,I think the Tree IV would make a great gift a perfect early Christmas gift.I do want to sell them to bigger retailers and not just from my house.Maybe like Wal-Mart or Kmart or Walgreens simple stores like that." Keeping things simple proved to be effective in a victory that caught Burcaw off guard. "I was very surprised that I won,"she said."If you actually look at my invention it's a very simple idea just an ornament with a tube attached to it that anyone can use. "But I think it's a very helpful invention and I think that's mainly why I won.For example,the elders with back pain won't have to bend over anymore." One person not surprised by Burcaw's victory is her science teacher,Jane Gucciardo,who had three students among the finalists. "Katie is an amazing young lady with a very bright future ahead of her,"said Gucciardo."I like for my students to be creative problem solvers and Katie stands out because she thought of a way to solve a problem with the Tree IV. "Her entry in this competition was a testament to the kind of student she is, developing several prototypes before perfecting her final product." Burcaw isn't the only one at Martinez to benefit from her recognition,as her $1,000 prize was matched in the form of a grant for the same amount toward the school's STEM (science,technology,engineering and mathematics) program. As for Burcaw,the success of the Tree IV has her motivated to keep the ideas flowing. "I have made a whole series of IVs,"she said,including a similar concept that fills a dog bowl."In my future I definitely want to keep making more inventions.This was an amazing experience for me and I want it to keep going." And don't be surprised that the girl with the practical invention will be spending her award money in a practical manner. "I am going to use the $1,000 to pursue my invention and even make a commercial," Burcaw said. INNOVATOR,from page 1 So,instead of judging herself against others,she likes to compare herself against her previous achievements. She's the first to admit she doesn't always succeed.There are times when she errs on a skill she performed well in practice. "It happens to everyone,"Ng said.That doesn't deter her:"On your next competition,you say,I'm going to nail it.'" She's willing to work hard,practicing 16 hours a week in four-hour sessions on Mondays,Wednesdays,Thursdays and Fridays. Typically,gymnasts at Tampa Bay Rhythmics stretch for an hour then work on their skills,which involve using a rope,a ribbon,a hoop,a ball and clubs. Typical rope movements include swings, circles,figure-eights,releases,wrapping around a part of the body,tosses and jumps through the rope.The ribbon is attached to a stick and must be kept in motion showing patterns,such as spirals,snakes and figure eights.It also is used in the air and on the floor. In the ball exercise,gymnasts roll,throw, bounce,catch and trap the ball while trying to make it appear to be an extension of their body.The hoop,similar to a hula hoop, is decorated with tape to match the athlete's leotard.The hoop can be circled, rolled,spun and tossed.A gymnast can pass over or through the hoop.One typical movement is the "boomerang,"rolling the hoop forward with a snap of the wrist to make it roll back. Ng's mom,Angie,makes the trek between Wesley Chapel and Riverview to take her daughter to practices.She has also traveled to meets throughout Florida and in other states. The sport requires dedication,said Angie Ng,characterizing many moves the gymnasts make as "ER moves."By that,the nurse practitioner means that ordinary people trying the moves would wind up in the emergency room. Ng began doing rhythmic gymnasts three years ago,after trying artistic gymnastics and learning she wasn't a very good tumbler.She likes rhythmic gymnastics because it incorporates dance and involves no tumbling. She competes for Tampa Bay Rhythmics and is coached by Galina Burns and the gym's owner,Tyana Marlowe.In her first competition of the year at the Suncoast Sports Festival in January at the Florida State Fairgrounds,Ng placed first all-around in her level in her age division. Like artistic gymnastics and figure skating,rhythmic gymnasts are judged on their technical skills and artistry. "They'll judge you by expression if you match the music's mood.If you never smile and your routine is all happy,that could give you a deduction,"said Ng,who prefers performing to upbeat music. It's important to connect with judges, too,the 12-year-old said."You have to make eye contact with the judges and smile!" GYMNAST,from page 1 Rhythmic gymnastics requires the individual to be limber, poised, graceful, balanced and strong. Here, Kristen Ng practices moves with a plastic ball, which athletes use as part of their routine.Alex Kimball became the first elementary student at Academy at the Lakes to win a top prize at the University of South Florida's Young Innovator Competition.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Jeff OdomLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentBefore the season began,the Steinbrenner baseball team wanted to prove that it could make history by winning the first district championship in the program's three-year history.That mission took one step forward to accomplishment after the Warriors (13-6,7-1 district) knocked off Freedom 2-0 at home on April 5 to clinch the No.1 seed in the Class 7A-District 9 tournament in two weeks."It's pretty sick,"said Steinbrenner senior pitcher Chris Williams."You know it's a big accomplishment,but it's just the beginning for us." Williams,a Saint Leo University signee, tossed a complete game shutout without allowing a walk while striking out seven batters en route to his fifth win of the year. Both teams combined for five scoreless innings to start the contest before a pair of defensive miscues gave the Warriors the game's only runs. In the sixth inning,Patriots (13-5,5-3) senior pitcher Kyle Schindler plunked second baseman Christian Diaz on the back to put the senior aboard with no outs.After first baseman Chase Turner's single to center field moved Diaz to second base, Warriors third baseman Gerald Bautista hit a ground ball that was thrown over the head of Freedom first baseman Jake Kitchen to score Diaz. The bleeding continued as designated hitter Cole Gordon knocked in Bautista on a Kitchen fielding error. "Both pitchers threw the ball outstanding and it just so happened that we made a couple of mistakes there in the last inning on the bases and in the field that cost us," said Freedom coach A.J.Leppla. The Patriots wouldn't go down without a fight though,as they strung together three straight hits to quickly load the bases with no outs in the seventh inning. Williams got some help from his catcher, Jesse Haney,who picked off Freedom second baseman Johnny Keigher for the first out.The pitcher took care of the final two outs on strikeouts. "Chris had thrown so well and he was the guy we were letting get out of it,"said Steinbrenner coach John Crumbley."A couple guys got base hits and we were just hoping that we got a good play here and good play there and we did.It was big." Schindler,who allowed just four hits and struck out seven batters,said he felt good about his arm and credited his counterpart."I've had a little trouble with my control and I wasn't throwing as hard as I usually was,but I definitely made the adjustment today and I felt great,"Schindler said.He then added,"Just a great game by their pitcher."The Warriors did suffer a loss in the contest.Senior shortstop Stone Ramsey,who is hitting .317 with 11 RBI,broke his wrist after being hit with a pitch in the sixth inning.He was taken out of the game in the seventh after failing to complete a play. The Patriots still have the No.2 seed in the 7A-9 tournament at Gaither and have also secured the first winning season in the program's nine-year history.They play Wiregrass Ranch in the district semifinals, with the winner advancing to the championship on April 26 at 7 p.m. Steinbrenner plays the winner of game between Gaither and Chamberlain in the first round of the 7A-9 tournament. The Warriors host Hillsborough on April 10 at 7 p.m.,before traveling to George M. Steinbrenner Field to play Sickles at 4 p.m. Freedom hosts Durant on April 10 at 7 p.m. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Steinbrenner girls track team has been a force during its young history. The Warriors were district runners-up during their inaugural season in 2010 and ran away with the Class 2A-District 9 championship last year.Senior Alexis Wright,who came from Gaither as a sophomore,relishes the opportunity to shape the fledgling program's perception. "It's been a pleasure to come in and be able to help set the standard for what Steinbrenner track athletes should be able to do,"said Wright,who won the 2A state title in the 100-meter hurdles last year. "Having the opportunity to define the word warrior'has been extraordinary.I left Gaither to have this opportunity,but I never dreamed it could have been like this." Senior thrower Melisa Stankovich said the team has even more drive to defend their title. "We're all more focused because we have a target on our back,"Stankovich said. "We've got to keep up our reputation and show that we still want to get a title." Most of Steinbrenner's top athletes are back to defend that crown after another year of training with veteran coach Ladd Baldwin,who spent 12 years at Gaither and six at Chamberlain before starting the Warriors'program. "The heart of the team is intact and healthy,and we've added a couple nice pieces,"Baldwin said."As coaches it's up to us to put the kids in the right position. Along with that you're always trying to maintain the program,so we're taking a lot of time to build the freshmen and sophomores up to take over when the seniors are gone."Junior thrower Jessica Weatherman said a big part of the team's quick success has been how Baldwin views all 17 scoring events."We're all around a team,"Weatherman said. "We don't focus on one event to get our points. We have a variety all over.Coach Baldwin makes a good team,and I think we're even better than last year." A big part of building a complete team is finding the right place for each athlete. "Some events you just don't have,but you try kids in different spots to see what they do best,"Baldwin said. "Alexis wasn't a hurdler. One day we tried her there and now she's the state champ." Junior Jessica Brewer also had to find her way to her best events.She started doing the hurdles but never really took to it."We were walking around the track one day,my teammate Sarah Eppler,coach Baldwin and myself,"Brewer said."Sarah said do you know the steps for triple'and coach Baldwin said I've been meaning to try you in that.'"The triple is a lot like something Brewer had done growing up.She won a state title in the vault while a level 5 gymnast in fifth grade. "She was just a natural,"Baldwin sad."Her first meet was the Western Conference American Division and advanced to the county games and got sixth there.She works hard every day." Finding the right event is only half the battle.Baldwin said he also strives to keep his athletes as focused on track as possible during the season. "A lot of the girls who join do it because they got cut from other sports,"Baldwin said."Most just want to hang out with their friends.Once they get out here it's our job to develop that fire inside of them." Junior twins Salina and Lauren Garris are prime examples. "The biggest thing is I try a lot harder now than when I was a freshman,"Lauren said."I want to be better when before I was just doing this because friends did it." Salina added,"Coach Baldwin started to inspire me to do better.When I saw times getting better that pushed me to try harder. In every race I want to have a better time." For Salina,better times aren't just for herself. "I know my times wouldn't be as good if I didn't have my team running with me," Salina said."Running with your team is a big deal,and they make you want to run on days you don't feel like running.I don't feel like I qualify for anything individually.I feel like I'm just helping my team." The Warriors will compete at the 3A-8 meet at Gaither on April 19 starting at noon. The Carrollwood Day School (CDS) girls tennis team won the first district championship in school history at the Class 1A-District 8 tournament on April 5. The Patriots scored 21 to claim the title, rolling to a seven-point victory against runner-up Tampa Prep. "We have had an exciting season,"said CDS coach Susan Most."The girls have worked very hard to attain their goal of winning the district championship.We are all very proud of their accomplishments." The Patriots were led by the FitzRandolph sisters,freshman Jacquelyn and seventh-grader Lauren,who teamed up to win the No.1 doubles final for the second straight year to qualify for the state tournament.The duo finished as 1A doubles state runner-up a year ago.Jacquelyn also won the No.1 final 6-3,6-1 over Academy at the Lakes'Daniela Moreno.The sisters'older brother,Eric,won the No.1 singles final for the boys 2-6,7-6 (7-5), 6-4,but CDS finished third in team points. The individual championship earns Eric a spot in states.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE An intense passion and unfaltering belief in treating the whole person has taken Dr. Tom Myers on an unexpected journey. In 20 years Dr. Myers has been an athletic trainer of high school and college students, spent six years in Lima, Peru providing care to some of Peru's poorest people and opened a successful chiropractic center in Lutz that focuses on identifying the root causes of patients' issues. "I've always believe in going above and beyond in whatever I do," said Dr. Myers. Dr. Myers earned degrees in exercise science and athletic training before moving from the Midwest to St. Petersburg in 1994 to work as an athletic trainer with area youth. "For eight years I watched my young patients be treated for injuries with traditional means and saw the same repetitive patterns with, at times, limited results," said Dr. Myers. "I came to believe that there must be a better way to help athletes prevent and recover from injuries." Dr. Myers's quest to find an alternative approach led him to Parker College of Chiropractic, where he graduated in 2000. Along the way he met his future wife, Laura Bohannon-Myers. "Marrying Tom has been one adventure after another," said Laura, a Tampa native whose parents are well-known local realtors, Doug and Annette Bohannon. "A year after we were married, Tom called out of the blue and asked how I felt about moving to Peru. He had been invited to spend a year providing care to some of the poorest people in Lima. A few weeks later we were off to a new life, new culture and new language," said Laura. Neither Laura nor Tom spoke any Spanish before they arrived in what was to be their home for the next six years. But that did not hinder their commitment. While in Peru the couple became fluent in Spanish and opened two chiropractic offices. Tom performed more than 60,000 chiropractic adjustments to mostly poor, indigent people. But it was the street children and orphans who stole the Myers' hearts. "These children lived in houses where the walls were made of straw mats and the roofs were thatched or a blue tarp," said Laura. "Because Peru has little rain and no running water in poor areas, children were very dusty and their clothes filthy. Their shoes, if they had any, consisted of a sole and string to hold them together." To help these kids, the Myers founded an organization that provided shoes for more than 5,000 poor children. This love for children soon transpired into children of their own. Two of their three sons, now ages 9, 6, and 4, were born in Peru. The Myers returned to the U.S. in 2007 and settled in Wesley Chapel to be close to Laura's family. They opened their practice soon afterward and recently moved to a larger office to accommodate their growing patient list. Chiropractic mixed with the untimely death of his mother has lead Dr. Myers to look for the root causes of many of today's frequent ailments. This discovery process is done by the use of a new discipline called Functional Medicine. "Functional Medicine searches for the underlying cause or causes of someone's symptoms," said Dr. Myers. "After we understand what is causing a patient's symptoms, we develop a holistic plan that incorporates chiropractic intervention, natural supplementation and lifestyle adjustments. "We have grown our practice primarily by word of mouth, because our patients see and feel the results," said Dr. Myers. "We offer a warm and loving atmosphere and stop at nothing to help patients and their families". Dr.Myers will be a guest speaker at Nutrition Smart in Wesley Chapel on April 19th at 7pm.The topic will be ADD/ADHD & Autism A Natural Approach.Call 813.973.8883 to reserve your seat.A Closer Look At World Class Health Center World Class Health Center23900 S.R. 54, Suite 101, Lutz, FL33559 (next to Big Apple Bagels)813-973-8883 www.WorldClassHealthCenter.com BECAUSE LIFE IS RICHER WHEN YOU CAN HEAR IT Request an appointment online at: www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Our Services Include:Hearing testing for all ages 813.973.8400Call us for a FREE listening demonstration today JODY C. PIANIN, AU.D Doctor of Audiology CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 17 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comWiregrass Ranch reached the final of the Pasco Varsity Spring Break Baseball Tournament for the second straight year. Unfortunately for the tournament host the results were the same as in the event's inaugural year in 2011.Last season crosstown rival Wesley Chapel defeated the Bulls (15-5) in the championship,while Mitchell (13-7) picked up a 4-2 W on April 6. Wiregrass Ranch had to settle for its second runner-up trophy,but coach Jeff Swymer said playing four games in as many days made his team stronger. "Any time you can play in a tournament like this it creates camaraderie amongst your kids,"Swymer said."You find out what kind of depth you have as far as on the mound.It allows you to experiment some with guys in different positions.It's great to create momentum into districts coming up." Swymer and the Bulls turned to lefthander Ryan Kopenski to start the contest. The senior threw 30 pitches in three relief innings to pick up a 5-4 win over Sunlake in the semifinals the night before. "He sent me a text this morning that said he wanted the ball and that he felt fine," Swymer said."I gave him the ball and he pitched out of his mind." Tammy Bullock of RBI Baseball and Wiregrass Ranch baseball coach Jeff Swymer had an idea to recreate Tampa Bay's biggest tournament. The inspiration is the Saladino Baseball Tournament,which takes place each spring break in Hillsborough County.The event generally includes all of the Hillsborough's 27 public schools to declare the unofficial county champion. That idea created the Pasco Varsity Spring Break Baseball Tournament last year. "We volunteered to put this tournament on when Tammy talked about getting this started,"said Swymer,who was the pitching coach at Riverview for eight years."I wanted to do something in Pasco like the Saladino to give these kids a feel for what it's like." Bullock's son,Billy,was coached by Swymer at Riverview.The former University of Florida closer is now with the Atlanta Braves'AA team in Mississippi.

Marcus Guzman walked on five pitches,stole second,advanced to third on a Marin groundout and found the plate after Zack Drury reached on a strikeout with two down.Drury continued the small ball for the Bulls,stealing second and third and scoring on an Alex Goebel single. Kopenski got into a jam in the fourth. With one out and runners on second and third Mitchell pitcher Garrett Kriston hit a fast-falling liner to right field.Guzman sprinted in to make a diving catch,got to his feet and fired a laser toward home to nail Blake Heart at the plate. "It was a great play,and honestly I thought that was going to shift the momentum,"Swymer said."Their pitcher came out and got a 1-2-3 inning after that." Kriston allowed one hit during his last three innings while recording three of his nine strikeouts,including Wiregrass Ranch's last two batters. The Mustangs got two runs,one earned, in the fifth and added an insurance tally in the sixth.Kopenski used 78 pitches in 5.2 innings before Drury came in for the last out. "Kopenski didn't have his best stuff,but he's a guy who everyone on this team trusts with the ball,"Swymer said. Land O'Lakes (15-5) won the consolation game 13-3 in six innings against Sunlake (8-11). The Gators racked up nine hits and six walks.Alex Reynolds drove in four,three on a double and another on a sacrifice fly, while Brad Hencke had four RBI of his own including a three-run home run.Second baseman Dylan Harris had three doubles, drove in two and scored two runs.

McCoole,who made it to states as a sophomore and junior,also lifted 300 in the clean and jerk.His 750 total won him the unlimited district title, earning him his third trip to the finals.

Liquor items are only available at Publix Liquors. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comFreedom softball coach Autum Hernandez says it regularly during practice.It doesn't matter what the drill is or the position of the players she's talking to.It applies to everything for the Patriots (10-4) do it with a purpose. "The whole coaching staff has told them with everything do it with a purpose,"Hernandez said."If you're not playing in a game watch someone in the field with a purpose.When you go up to bat have a purpose.When you're on second base have a purpose.We've been stressing that and letting them know they need to think about where they're trying to hit the ball or where to throw it." For the fourth-year Freedom coach it's about forming something that will last beyond one season. "We talk about building a program here;not just a team,"Hernandez said."It's about creating an atmosphere where kids at Freedom want to play softball." That mentality has led the Patriots to one of the best starts in the program's nine-year history including clinching the No.2 spot in the Class 7A-District 9 tournament;their best seeding ever.The ranking puts them in position to make their first postseason,but they aren't looking past any game. "We just focus on the next game,"said senior first baseman Katie Gresham."If we do that then the postseason will take care of itself." Gresham admits getting to regionals would be the highlight of her four years on the squad. "I don't even think I have words for what that would mean,"Gresham said."A lot is all I can think of.It would be exciting to be the first team to get a banner. We don't even have one,so to get one would be amazing." Freedom's rise in the district standings comes after losing five seniors from last year. "I was thinking it was going to be a rebuilding year,"said sophomore outfielder Ashley Wilson."We've definitely surpassed that.The team is doing awesome." Gresham is the squad's only senior,but the Patriots have not lacked leadership. "The thing is we all work together really well,"Gresham said."We don't have one leader;we lead together." Freedom has also benefitted from a strong freshmen class,including pitcher Grace Street and catcher Kayla Maczuga. The duo said they have treated high school ball like every other softball team they've been on,which has helped with the transition. "In practice we try to get everything down right so we do it right in games," Street said."Sometimes it works,but sometimes it doesn't.That's how softball works. You have to do the right things in practice and things will work out." Street has a team-high .520 batting average and 16 RBI while posting an 10-4 record,2.11 ERA and 64 strikeouts.Maczuga is also hitting a robust .386 with nine RBI. The freshmen are two of six Patriots hitting better than .280.Overall the squad is batting .338 with a .407 on-base percentage. Freedom is posting eye-popping stats and racking up wins,but things started rocky.The Patriots lost their first two district games by a combined score of 14-6. Their third 7A-9 contest was against perennial powerhouse Chamberlain (18-2), a program that has made the playoffs 13 of the last 14 years while winning the Class 5A state championship in 2003.The Chiefs eliminated Freedom from the postseason last year with a 4-3 win in the district semifinals. The Patriots went out and handed the Chiefs their first loss of the season 5-4.It was also their first victory ever over Chamberlain in six attempts. "My sister (Kimmy) played here for four years,so I saw Chamberlain play them a bunch of times,"Maczuga said."Beating Chamberlain for the first time was really big for us." Freedom lost the rematch on March 30, but Hernandez said that first W helped change the way her players look at themselves. "Chamberlain is always tough," Hernandez said."They were a tough team when I was in high school (at Robinson). Chamberlain is what everyone strives to be in our county.I think that being able to compete with them was good for this team. They weren't in awe of playing Chamberlain.To them it's become another game." Wilson added,"When you see Chamberlain,they're a program.That's what we want to be like.We beat them this year, but we want to be able to beat them not just this year,but every year because we've become a program too." The 7A-9 tournament is at Steinbrenner, with the championship on April 19 at 7 p.m. The Patriots host Durant on April 10 before traveling to Riverview for the regular season finale.Both games start at 7 p.m. All stats as recorded to Maxpreps.com by coaches Freedom rosterNo.Player Pos.Yr. 1 Rachel Carlson OF So. 2 Kayla Prisco OF Fr. 3 Antonia Tirado-Loomis OF Fr. 5 Maria Horvath OF/2B So. 6 Nina Jackson OF Fr. 7 Katie Gresham 1B Sr. 8 Savanna Chavez 3B Jr. 9 Abby Ryan OF Fr. 10 Caroline Whiteside 2B Jr. 13 Alexys Salamin OF Fr. 14 Ashley Wilson OF So. 18 Caitlin Harper SS Jr. 19 Kayla Maczuga C Fr. 25 Grace Street P Fr.SPORTS Patriots play with a purposeCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 23 Freedom freshman pitcher Grace Street has a team-high .520 batting average and 16 RBI while also throwing all 109.1 of her team's innings with a 10-4 record, 2.11 ERAand 64 strikeouts.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 11,2012 24 Freshmen pitching/catching duo help Patriots succeedBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comFreedom softball pitcher Grace Street and catcher Kayla Maczuga appear like veterans. They are both batting better than .350 and have played in every inning of every game for the Patriots (10-4).The two make the right decisions and execute their plays and pitches without drawing attention to themselves. They sound like four-year starters,but both are freshmen still getting used to life in high school. "They've really stepped up,"said sophomore outfielder Ashley Wilson."We needed them to step up and they've done that. Grace is pitching and hitting like a senior and so is Kayla at the plate.I give them both a round of applause for what they've done." There was a lot of pressure for both to perform this season.Freedom lost its catcher and all of its pitchers to graduation or transfers,forcing Grace to throw every pitch of every inning this season;all received by Maczuga behind the plate. They have responded. Grace,who said her best pitches are a curveball and changeup,is hitting a teamhigh .520 with 16 RBI while posting an 10-4 record,2.11 ERA and 64 strikeouts.Maczuga is batting .386 with nine RBI. "I have to remind myself pretty much constantly that Grace is a freshman,"said Patriots coach Autum Hernandez."She's leading our team in batting.A couple games ago against Gaither she had five RBI.She has definitely put a quiet spark in the team.She comes to practice every day and puts in the work without saying much.She never complains.She's not playing like a freshman. "We expect a lot from our catcher,"continued Hernandez,who was a catcher at Robinson."To us it's never the pitcher's fault;it's the catcher's fault.Kayla takes a lot of that brunt and handles it well.She sets high expectations for herself.When she makes a mistake she harps on herself.We don't have to say much to her about it." The duo has benefited from having some history together.They both played on the U10 New Tampa Spirit,an AAU travel team. "It's been very helpful,"Street said. "Getting to know your catcher and a catcher getting to know their pitcher is very key. I trust her.I trust that she's going to catch anything I throw.Whenever a pitch goes wild I know she'll be there." Maczuga said the talks that happen naturally between a pitcher and catcher also helped form a bond. "She's a very quiet person,"Maczuga said. "She doesn't talk constantly to everyone on the team,but when we're pitching and catching we'll talk about how things are going.I think those conversations have helped." Maczuga has been impressed with Street's work ethic. "She's doing really great,"Maczuga said. "She's working as hard as juniors and seniors,and she's keeping up with them.It makes everyone else want to work harder." Hernandez is happy the large question marks around the pitcher and catcher positions have been removed and replaced by consistency. "It's really nice to have them do what they've done at such a young age," Hernandez said."We lost a lot from last year, and they've brought a lot of stability to the team."
