Dale Mabry Hwy Ste 101 Lutz, FL (Corner of Sunlake & Dale Mabry) Check It!SUMMER CAMPS. SUMMER FUN. OH YEAH!Page 10 By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe owners of The Gathering Place are hoping the new restaurant in Lutz will live up to its name. "We want it to be the local gathering place,whether you want to eat,whether you want to have a couple of drinks,a dessert,or just come see who is here hanging out,"said Chris Fuller,who owns the restaurant with his mom,Sandy. With its sunflower yellow walls and its fun,funky signs,the restaurant at 16319 N. Florida Ave.,has a warm,welcoming feel. The Fullers have put together a menu they're confident will appeal to all kinds of people.Pizzas are baked in a wood-fired oven with an array of toppings that goes well beyond traditional choices. There's a Hang Ten,featuring marinara,house-smoked bacon,pineapple and mozzarella.The Aphrodite has marinara,kalamata olives,local feta cheese,mozzarella,red onion,green pepper and rosemary.The Lutz Boy is topped with house-smoked chicken, barbecue sauce,drunken caramelized onions and mozzarella.And there's the Pizza Verde,topped with fresh pesto,spinach,fresh local feta, pine nuts and scallions. You can also build your own pizza,choosing from numerous ingredients. The restaurant opened March 22 and already has fans. "It has good food,a good beer selection, fair pricing,a good atmosphere and a friendly staff,"said Mike Blackshaw,of Lutz,who was there for dinner recently,with his wife, Claire,and their friends,Iain and Bea Rowell,also of Lutz. The couples are repeat customers because they like the fresh food and the friendly service.They said the Lutz area has lacked this type of restaurant. Fuller said the offerings go well beyond pizza. "We have a selection of sandwiches and salads,as well,"he said. By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA room brightens with the sound of music mixed with beaming smiles of several children as they try various instruments set to the tune played by their instructor. For the participants the hour flies by like it is only a minute as they learn about the art form.Suddenly one of the students,Alex Lynch,turns to a classmate and says hi.' That one word seems insignificant,but to his mother,Jennifer,those small responses show her how remarkable the VSA Florida class is for her autistic son. Alex is mostly nonverbal,but he speaks simple words regularly while at the program put on each Tuesday at the psychiatry building at the University of South Florida (USF). "He loves music,"Jennifer said."Because he's nonverbal it gives him another avenue for expression. He looks so forward to it. He loves it and responds so well to music.I think the arts have had a big impact on his ability to verbalize." The two make the 30-minute drive from their home in Land O'Lakes to reap the benefits.Jennifer has seen improved focus in her 13-year-old son thanks to the class.He also has taken more interest in music and even joined the band at his school, Weightman Middle in Wesley Chapel,as a drummer. The story is similar with Arwa Alamoudi and her 13-year-old brother Anas,who has autism and ADHD. "He really likes the movement and the sounds of the music,"said Arwa,who is attending USF to become a teacher for special needs kids."It helps him relieve his stress." Arwa said Anas,who attends Liberty Middle in New Tampa,has also been more verbal since attending the class the last two months. Jennifer and Arwa are just some of the caregivers who have benefited from the VSA since its founding in Florida in 1985.The program also offers courses in dance,playwriting,creative storytelling,painting, pottery and almost every other art form.It focuses on teaching people with disabilities, but no one is turned away. "All we really want is for people to sit at the same table with everyone else and to be treated the same,"said Marian Winters,VSA of Florida executive director."People with disabilities don't have those same opportunities.We need to level the playing field and let them learn about art.If they're good at it they are and if they aren't they aren't,like anyone else,but they need to be able to sit at the same table and have that experience.

Owen Sarwatka founded Everyone Can Play,a non-profit volunteer program designed to encourage kids with physical and/or intellectual disabilities to learn the skills needed to play baseball.Local high school athletes mentor the participants. In March,the Yankees honored Sarwatka a Yankees fan -and nine other athletes in his group before a spring training game,letting them take the field with their favorite Yankee and the special needs athlete they mentored during a January clinic.The athletes put their skills to work at a scrimmage with the Yankees. Owen,a 17-year-old junior at Tampa Catholic High School,and his teammates work year-round to raise money for Everyone Can Play in hopes that it will someday become a national program. "When everyone can play together,we all win,"Sarwatka said."I am happy just seeing the smiles on the faces of the buddies and participants alike." A.J.Peterson,a Tampa Catholic senior and vice president of the organization,was thrilled that he and his buddy Emery Brunner were able to share the field with Yankee catcher Russell Martin. "The opportunity to work with these kids is a blessing,"Peterson said."You learn they are just like you and me and will do anything to spend the day with a group of kids their age.I am very blessed to have this opportunity,it is amazing how they steal your heart away."Teen's charity honored by Yankees Owen Sarwatka had his picture taken with Lou Piniella when the Yankees honored the group Sarwatka founded to help special needs athletes.

The school was taking part in a special event organized by the 4-H Youth Development program,which invited members of Operation:Military Kids across the country to take part in "Purple Up." The school became familiar with Operation:Military Kids and "Purple Up" because the students in Barbara Monty's fifth-grade class are studying the impact of having parents in the military as part of an inquiry program they are doing.The inquiry program serves as a foundation to prepare students for Carrollwood Day School's middle years program. Carrollwood Day is a private school offering an International Baccalaureate curriculum for children in preschool through high school.The school has two campuses in northern Hillsborough County. Barbara Monty's fifth-grade class led an initiative at Carrollwood Day School for students and staff to wear purple to show support for children with parents in the military.

"Before I finally made a phone call to Samantha, I had seen her articles and advertisements in our local paper for several years! During those years, I gained about 10 pounds each year with a combination of bad eating habits, a stressful job and no exercise. At the beginning of last year I went on a cruise with my mother and when I got back I looked at the photos we took. I could not believe the person in the photos was me how had I become so out of shape? I thought I didn't have time to work out but Samantha convinced me that I had to make time and also make the changes in my eating habits to become healthy and lose weight. The time I have spent with Samantha has been one of the best investments I've made in my life she has inspired me to eat healthier and how to work out effectively to lose the fat I needed to lose without losing muscle. She has shown me a way that I can follow for the rest of my life. I have gone from a size 14 to a size 4 in 7 months and I've lost over 138 inches all over my entire body! I feel better and have more energy than I have in years. I encourage you to give her a call today don't waste another day! And the amazing thing is with everything I have learned from Samantha, I have now kept this weight off for 4 years; something I was never able to do before.

ELECTION CORNER PRMC joins cancer study Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Residents of Dade City and surrounding communities have an opportunity to participate in a historic study that has the potential to change the face of cancer for future generations. Men and women between the ages of 30 and 65 who have never been diagnosed with cancer are needed to participate in the American Cancer Societys Cancer Prevention Study-3 (CPS-3). CPS-3 will enroll a diverse population of up to half a million people across the United States and Puerto Rico.The opportunity for local residents to enroll in CPS-3 is being made possible in partnership with Pasco Regional Medical Center in Dade City, on June 22 and 23. To enroll in the study, participants must schedule an appointment at www.seeuthere.com/cps3enroll/pascomedical.CPS-3 will help researchers better understand the lifestyle, environmental, and genetic factors that cause or prevent cancer. To participate, individuals will go to a local enrollment location and will be asked to read and sign an informed consent form, complete a brief survey, have their waist circumference measured, and give a small blood sample. The in-person enrollment process takes approximately 20-30 minutes to complete. At home, individuals will complete a comprehensive survey packet that asks for information on lifestyle, behavioral, and other factors related to their health. Upon completion of this process, the society will continue to send periodic follow-up surveys to update participant information and annual newsletters with study updates and results. The initial and follow-up surveys completed at home will take an hour or less of time to complete and are expected to be sent every few years. Many individuals diagnosed with cancer struggle to answer the question, What caused my cancer? In many cases, we dont know the answer, said Alpa V. Patel, Ph.D., principal investigator of CPS-3. CPS-3 will help us better understand what factors cause cancer, and once we know that, we can be better equipped to prevent cancer. Our previous cancer prevention studies have been instrumental in helping us identify some of the major factors that can affect cancer risk. CPS-3 holds the best hope of identifying new and emerging cancer risks, and we can only do this if members of the community are willing to become involved. Researchers will use the data from CPS-3 to build on evidence from a series of American Cancer Society studies that began in the 1950s that collectively have involved millions of volunteer participants. The Hammond-Horn Study and previous Cancer Prevention Studies (CPS-I, and CPS-II) have played a major role in understanding cancer prevention and risk and have contributed significantly to the scientific basis and development of public health guidelines and recommendations. Those studies confirmed the link between cigarette smoking and lung cancer, demonstrated the link between larger waist size and increased death rates from cancer and other causes, and showed the considerable impact of air pollution on heart and lung conditions. The current study, CPS-II, began in 1982 and is still ongoing. But changes in lifestyle and in the understanding of cancer in the more than two decades since its launch make it important to begin a new study. The voluntary, long-term commitment by participants is what will produce benefits for decades to come. For more information or to learn how to become involved with CPS-3, visit cancer.org/cps3, email cps3@cancer org, or call toll-free 1-888-604-5888.

THE GO-TO GUIDE FOR YOUR KIDS' SUMMER ACTIVITIES By Samantha Taylor Pure Health Studios One of the most common requests I get for food reviews are for the restaurants that appear to be healthy but have a lot of food items on their menu that can be more fattening than McDonald's.For this month's review,I chose Panera Bread. Panera has several bakery-cafes in our area,with locations in Highwoods Preserve,Bruce B.Downs Boulevard and North Dale Mabry in Carrollwood.Panera does offer some good options,and I was pleasantly surprised to see it lists calories on the menu board on the wall. To assist those of us who are working toward our optimum health,the restaurant also offers half sizes of salads and sandwiches,which can really help you watch those calories.I had my studio manager with me this time,so we tried two different items to help expand your options. Wanting a hot sandwich,I ordered the Smokehouse Turkey¨ Panini with bacon and cheese on whole wheat bread.I will admit this was on the greasy side and did not reek of quality.'I would have enjoyed more a sandwich full of yummy vegetables and turkey,so I did regret my choice afterwards. All in all it did taste good,just greasy, and had only a surprising 350 calories for half of it (which is all I ate).I also got Baked! Lays¨ potato chips as my side,saving them for later.I did order a portion of sliced cucumbers with some light Italian dressing on the side and dipped the cucumbers into the dressing.Now,that was a tasty,refreshing treat! My manager ordered a Fuji Apple Chicken salad,which she has had before, and it looked amazing.If you do not favor a sweet,fruity salad,you may want to choose something different. The whole salad had 590 calories (which is not bad for a meal),but it had 40 grams of fat! I do not recommend eating the whole thing,for that is quite a bit of fat for one meal,especially a salad.You could try leaving off the Gorgonzola or pecans and,as always,get the dressing on the side.Just those few changes can cut out between 10 to 20 grams of fat. For a few examples,a bagel at Panera has 370 calories while a hamburger at McDonalds has only 250 calories,Panera's Chipotle Chicken Panini has 990 calories and 56 grams of fat.Yikes! Tip:Stick to whole grain bread choices,not white,and stick to a half sandwich with a side of Baked! Lays¨ or sliced cucumbers. HEALTHY ORDERING Editor's Note: Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we are heavier than ever before. The challenge is to determine the calorie and fat content of menu items and make healthy choices. Samantha Taylor offers her tips on how you can make responsible choices while dining out.

By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comImagine you could engineer a circuit board that would use less electricity and be easier to build. Fifteen-year-old David Gamero,a student in the upper division at Academy at the Lakes,didn't just imagine it.He built it. And,his efforts are getting attention. The young man from Trinity received an Intel Excellence in Computer Science award,which was accompanied by a $200 cash prize,at the 57th annual State Science and Engineering Fair of Florida in early April at the Lakeland Center.That follows his first place finish at the Regional Pasco Science Fair in February.Other awards the high school freshman scooped up at the regional contest were: The Intel Excellence in Computer Science Award The Excellence in Manufacturing Engineering Principles Award The 2011 Regional Ricoh Sustainable Development Award The CH2M Hill Certificate of Achievement for Outstanding Project The U.S.Army Certificate of Achievement for Outstanding Science and Engineering Next,he'll compete at Intel ISEF International Science and Engineering Fair in Philadelphia in May. Gamero designed a system that runs in a grid,using no central processing unit. "All of the power goes straight to the display.All of it is done with simple,physical circuits.So,it takes up more space but uses less electricity,"he said. The simplicity of Gamero's engineering project is elegant,said Amy Jordan,who taught at Harvard before coming to Academy at the Lakes to teach science. "That's pretty sophisticated,"she said. "Often,when someone does something pretty interesting,people go,Oh,that's obvious.' "That's what makes it great.If it weren't obvious,it probably wouldn't be that great," Jordan said. It's impressive that Gamero could take his idea and actually make it work,Jordan said. "Thinking that you could do it -and doing it,is a big deal,"she said. The teenager said he has always enjoyed tinkering. "I've always loved to take apart stuff.My dad and I used to build things all of the time. "The first thing I built my dad and I put together an entertainment center,"he recalled,estimating he was about 4 years old at the time. "I probably slowed him down,"he said, because his father had to stop and explain how to perform the tasks. "I remember taking apart toys when they were broken,"Gamero said.He would cannibalize parts and use them in different ways. Gamero said he has always enjoyed seeing how things work. In thirdand fourth grade he did physicsoriented projects involving eggs.Then he shifted to a catapult trajectory problem in sixth grade.He began developing an interest in electronics during seventh and eighth grades. He's not sure where his career path will lead,but suspects it will involve mathematics or engineering. "I'll find my way,"the young man said.Academy at the Lakes student captures awards David Gamero, a freshman at Academy at the Lakes in Land O'Lakes, has garnered attention and awards for his engineering work with a circuit board. (Photo by B.C. Manion) There's also a soup of the day, a burger of the day and dinner entre specials based on ingredients available that day. "I think the most important thing is providing fresh,tasty food,"Fuller said.A pleasant atmosphere,friendly staff and affordable prices are important,too,the co-owners said.The appetizers range from $6 to $10 and dinner entrees go from $11 to $16.So far,pizza is the most popular choice, but the gator bombs and Cuban nachos are big hits,too,Fuller said.The gator bombs are made from tender chipotle gator tail finely chopped,stuffed into peppadews with a cheesy mixture and beer battered.They are served with Chipotle Aioli.The Cuban nachos are crispy plantains topped with all natural pulled pork,black bean and corn salsa and a mojo sour cream sauce. Appetizers are served tapas style,to make sharing easy,Fuller said. Besides being a gathering place for patrons,the Fullers want the restaurant to be known for serving locally produced foods. "What we really wanted to do was bring a concept to the area where we would use as many fresh,wholesome ingredients as we possibly could,"Fuller said."The meat that we use here is just about as natural as you can possibly get,as close to the wild.We use free-range,organic grass-fed beef,locally farmed.Same with our pork.It's pastureraised,so it's free range.There are no cages and they're not all penned up." Some vegetables are grown locally,too, and the restaurant is expanding that supply, Fuller said. The restaurant makes its own desserts, including rum cakes,which are Sandy Fuller's specialty.It also serves ice cream from The Old Meeting House in South Tampa,she said. The restaurant has indoor and outdoorPLACE,from page 1seating,as well an intimate space known as the cave lounge which can be booked for small private parties. One advantage of being independent is the ability to respond quickly to customers, Sandy Fuller said. "We're looking for feedback,good or bad,"she said. "We want to know,"agreed Chris Fuller. During the first week,for instance,they adjusted the menu based on customer response. They've also changed the hours using a go-with-the-flow approach.The restaurant now opens at 11 a.m.on Tuesdays through Sundays,with variable closing hours,based on how business is going. "As long as there are people here,we'll be open,"Sandy Fuller said.

Finklea worked as a clinical microbiologist before coming to the VSA.She said she was surprised at how effective the methods are at helping those with disabilities learn. "When I heard about it there was something that made me say this is what I want to do,'"Finklea said."I'd done a lot of medical work and volunteering with the arts and this did both." People such as adjunct University of Tampa music instructor Linda Rodriguez teach the programs.Finklea said they also invite disabled artists whenever they can. Winters said the classes don't just benefit the students.They also give caregivers the feeling that they are not alone. "It's nice to meet other people who have a family member with autism,"Arwa said."It made me feel connected to someone." Winters said one of her main goals is getting the word out about the VSA programs so more people take advantage of them."What I would like is a huge waiting list for people who want to participate in any of our groups,"Winters said."I want to see people with disabilities at performances and on the stage giving performances.I want to see them there and the demand for the programs. I know what we do has made significant changes in people's lives."To learn more about the VSA,visit www.vsafl.org or call Finklea at (813) 9740715 or Winters at (813) 974-0721. Volunteers and participants at a recent VSAclass at the University of South Florida use various musical instruments to express themselves.

The VSA was founded in the 1980s with the name Very Special Arts at the same time Special Olympics was created."Our philosophy is different,"Winters said."Special Olympics looks at the winning and getting that medal of accomplishment.VSA we're not as interested in winning,but of course we like it when our artists win things.We're interested in the process of making them see that the arts have value to their lives.So it's not about a battle for winning.It's about recognizing what's within."We provide arts education and cultural opportunities for and by people with disabilities,"Winters continued."It's for and by because we show the art of our students to try and get their careers started." The program directly serves 15,000 people with disabilities annually.Add in the students who are taught by teachers who attend VSA trainings and that number jumps up to 250,000;all done by a staff of seven working throughout the state. "We're able to help that many people because of our partnerships with all the school districts in the state,"said Winters, who has worked with the VSA since 1999. "We're funded by the state department of education.We also work with cultural organizations and other groups to get the education out there." Winters said teachers always see their students differently after using the methods taught by the VSA. "A lot of times students with disabilities are stereotyped as bad students,and it's amazing how wrong that is,"Winters said."It just takes a different way of reaching them because we all learn differently." The VSA is also branching out to find different ways to deliver its education,such as the community program offered at USF.The weekly class,which is $10 per session,wasVSA,from page 1 Pasco County students in eighth grade through high school created these art thread images using computers. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 25,2012 12 The Gathering Place before opening time.

Voted Florida's No. 1 Weekly Sports Section Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Steinbrenner girls track and field team won its second straight district championship April 19 at Gaither. The Warriors scored 201.5 points at the Class 3A-District 8 meet,besting runner-up Hillsborough by 66 and third-place Gaither by 123.5. "We have a group of hard-working kids that just get it done,"said Steinbrenner girls coach Ladd Baldwin."We've done a good job at Steinbrenner spreading kids out and finding the right places for them.If we're not winning,we're battling." Senior Alexis Wright,who attended Gaither as a freshman,set the tone for the Warriors,winning all three of her individual events.She ran the 100and 300-meter hurdles in 14.64 seconds and 47.22, respectively,and claimed the triple jump with a leap of 36 feet 6 inches. "It was a great opportunity to do what I know I'm capable of doing and run on Gaither's track for the last time,"Wright said. "I started out there,and finishing my district meet there going 3 for 3 was an amazing feeling.A lot of big things happened there.I had the opportunity to PR in the 100 hurdles." Wright added that the sizable win at the 3A level validates where the third-year program is after claiming a district title in 2A a year ago. "It's great to let people know that just because we're new doesn't mean we can't compete with the best of the best,"said Wright,who won the 100 hurdles state title last year."It was a very good defining moment not only for track and not only for our sports,but for Steinbrenner as a whole.We have the resources,we have the people and we have the determination to be a school that can do big things in the state of Florida." Wright will be joined at regionals with fellow triple jumper Jessica Brewer,who finished fourth (34-00.5),and also won the long jump with a 16-07.5.The Warriors also got a title from Sarah Eppler for clearing 806 in the pole vault. Steinbrenner also got a boost from the Garris twins Lauren and Salina,who finished second and third in the 1,600 in 5:39.61 and 5:40.3,respectively.Lauren was also runnerup in the 3,200 (12:38.54),and the sisters were half of the 4x800 relay team that placed No.2 (10:08.25). Jessica Weatherman recorded a 109-08 to finish as the discus runner-up,while Warriors teammate Melissa Stankovich was third (107-04). Gaither's lone championship came from Kiana Bryant,who won the 100 in 12.32. She also finished as the 200 runner-up in 25.37. Fellow Cowboy Rachel Cazares took second in the 800 (2:21.21),while Ariel Moore (15.63) and Jennifer Kingsley (16.24) finished second and third in the 100 hurdles, respectively.Moore was also runner-up in the 300 hurdles (48.06). The Steinbrenner boys finished third with 102 points,41 off Jefferson's championship pace.The Cowboys were fifth with 70. Preston West won the pole vault for the Warriors by posting 13,2-06 better than runner-up Ryan Hagen from Gaither. Steinbrenner's Tyler and Zach Lima took first and third in the 3,200 in 9:54.75 and 10:03.63,respectively.The twins are also on the 4x800 relay team that claimed district gold. The Cowboys shined in the hurdles. Senior Paul Barrett won the 300 (38.43) while taking second in the high jump (602).Freshman Samson Moore claimed the 110 (14.39) and was runner-up in the 400 (49.42).

(Photos by Andy Warrener)By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comTwo Steinbrenner student-athletes made their college plans official last week. Boys soccer player Conner Fleming became the first in program history to sign with a college April 19,picking Florida Institute of Technology,a Division II program in the Sunshine State Conference. "It's probably the best achievement I've accomplished in my life so far,"said Fleming, who will play midfield/defense."It's why I've been training every day for three years." Brian Gainer joined the ranks of college athletes when he committed April 18 to the University of Mount Union,a Division III program in the Ohio Athletic Conference. "My freshman year I told my mom I was going to play college football,"said the 5foot-10,170-pound Gainer."Then I was 5foot-3,maybe 103 pounds.I was probably the last player on the junior varsity team." Both will study premed,which is one reason Fleming picked Florida Tech. "It's a Tier 1 academic college,which means their academics are in the running with some of the top schools in the nation," said Fleming,who has a 5.3 grade point average."Also they have a 70 percent acceptance rate into medical school."Fleming,who attended Freedom until his junior year,had a relationship with Florida Tech coach Robin Chan from when he was on the southeast region Olympic development team.Gainer,who went to Alonso and Sickles before coming to Steinbrenner as a junior,was impressed with his new team's reputation."The winning tradition is something that really caught my attention,"said Gainer,who will play wide receiver."They have 10 national championships." Getting a chance at college ball seemed unlikely months ago.Gainer saw limited playing time,but got a shot in the Warriors' final contest against Middleton.He had a team-high 110 rushing yards,his first 100yard game,with two touchdowns.Steinbrenner duo signCnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITYNEWS PUBLICATIONS April 25,2012 13 Academy at the Lakes'Andrea Mauger placed fourth in the shot put at regionals April 19 at Orlando First Academy,becoming the first in program history to make states.The junior,who won a district title the week before,posted 33 feet 11.5 inches.Carrollwood Day School (CDS) senior Bailey Drury also earned a spot at states during the same meet by placing fourth in the 400-meters (1 minute 1.24 seconds). In other Class 1A regional action,Bishop McLaughlin qualified two athletes April 19 at Shorecrest Prep.Boys discus thrower Evan Barhonvich finished as runner-up (13809) and girls shot putter Taylor McDonald placed third (32-11). The 1A state meet is April 27 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville starting at 1 p.m. All results as recorded by the High School Athletic AssociationMauger advances to statesBy Eugenio Torrensetorrens@cnewspubs.comFreedom's Sandra Akachukwu claimed one title and had three second-place performances at the Class 4A-District 6 meet April 17 at Leto.Akachukwu bested the competition in the girls 100-meter by finishing in 12.41 seconds. Add in the runner-ups in the 200 (25.33),high jump (5 feet) and long jump (17-09.25) and junior earned 34 of the Patriots'96 points.Though Akachukwu was frustrated with her day afterward,her coach Dwight Smith didn't seem as concerned. "We always tell her she needs to channel her emotions to the next race,"Smith said. "She ran in four events.She made it through to regionals in four events.She's district runner-up in three,district champion in one.I mean you still had a great day."Neither Freedom nor Wharton could wrestle the team title from Plant,which scored 195.5 points.The Wildcats took second with 139.5 and the Patriots finished fourth.Wharton was boosted by Mikayla Barber, who won the 100 and 300 hurdles."Like many goals in my life that I want to achieve,if I come on the track scared all the time I'll never get there,"Barber said."I came out here with the mindset that I want to conquer."Teammate Tyler Watson was right behind Barber in the 300.Watson also got second in the triple jump. Barber and Watson were part of the winning 4x400 relay that clocked in at 4:01.11, nearly 10 seconds faster than Alonso. The Plant boys also won team gold with 210.5.Freedom took third (87.5) and Wharton was fourth (72.5). Apart from second-place finishes by Vernon Hargreaves in the long jump,Britton Lewis in the 300 hurdles and Jayren Barginere in the 800 run,the Wildcats'best effort came in the 4x800 relay,which they won with a time of 8:12.14.

Thunder claim spring tournamentSPORTS Wiregrass Ranch's aces fall in state finalsBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comWiregrass Ranch's Courage Okungbowa and Star Makarome both finished as runnerup in the Class 4A state singles tournament April 17 in Altamonte Springs. Okungbowa ends the season 21-1,while Makarome is 12-1.No other school in any class sent a boy and a girl to the singles finals. "That shows that Wiregrass has put ourselves on the map in tennis"said Bulls boys coach and athletic director Dave Wilson. "We're going to keep working to get better to get back here as a team and someday win the state title." For Okungbowa,a junior,the run to the boys championship match was redemption. Last year he entered states with the Bulls team undefeated,but lost in the first round. "I didn't think I was going to play this well,and it was a better experience than last year,"Okungbowa said.He then added,"I'm not happy,but it was a good season.I played my best." Makarome reached the finals despite being a freshman and 14 years old.She lost only three games all season entering states, but said the experience showed her she can improve. "I learned I should go back and practice a lot,"Makarome said with a laugh."I have to learn to meet power with power,and learn how to control the point especially against the bigger girls.I don't see me coming in as a freshman as an excuse." Okungbowa received a first-round bye before defeating Royal Palm Beach's Wade Ball 6-0,6-3 in the quarterfinals and the top seeded Gainesville Buchholz's Erik Vincent 3-6,6-3,6-3 in a three-hour semifinal.Vincent was the first player to take a set from Wiregrass Ranch's ace. He was unable to make it two comebacks in a row against Orlando Olympia's Sebastian Beltrame,falling 6-1,6-3.He staved off elimination by breaking Beltrame and winning his service game to get the score at 5-3 in the second,but it wasn't enough. "He's got a really good serve," Okungbowa said."He really stayed consistent.That's my problem is staying consistent. I can hit really good shots,but it's like five out of 20." Wilson added,"It's kind of hard to be prouder of him.Yesterday his battle was so tough.I think it took a lot out of his legs. He had a great year.To be 21-1 and the state runner-up is a great year." Bulls girls coach Jewell Fye was also beaming about her star pupil. "To be so good and get this far so young is amazing,"Fye said."I knew she would make it to this point."Makarome bested Parkland Douglas' Kellyn Abbanat 6-2,6-3 in the first round before getting past Orlando Dr.Phillips' Sarah Baron 7-5,6-1 in the quarters.She made short work of the No.1 seed Coral Gables'Sonja Radosevic 6-1,6-3 in the semis.All that stood in Makarome's way was Miramar Everglades'Gabriela Castenda. The freshman had never seen Castenda before,but soon learned she was more than a solid player. "She was really aggressive and was hugging the baseline,"Makarome said."It set me back on my game.I had to play defense for a long while until I could step into the point. Once I stepped into the point I hit winners, it was just getting a chance to control the point. Gabby was just too good of a player today." Castenda was able to hit her returns deep into the opposite court,negating Makarome's drop shot;one of her biggest weapons. Makarome lost the first set 6-1,but made Castenda work in the second.The Wiregrass Ranch No.1 lost her serve twice in her first three attempts,but managed to break her opponent back on the following game both times. Castenda took the lead for good by breaking Makarome to put the score at 5-4 before serving for the match. The day didn't end with a state title,but Makarome and Okungbowa have more opportunities. "I hope I'm able to get a title," Okungbowa said."I've got one more chance." Makarome added,"Hopefully in the next few years I can follow in Courage's footsteps." Bulls junior Courage Okungbowa reached the Class 4Astate finals and ends the season with a 21-1 singles record.

(File photo)By Andy WarrenerThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentCarrollwood Day School (CDS) sophomore tennis player Sarah Yaffe was unsure if she'd ever pick up a racket again last April because of the pain in her wrist. The problem became apparent on her 15th birthday in November 2010 when she recalled her left wrist "kind of popped"and that it felt like "someone stabbed me with a knife." By February 2011 she decided to see a doctor,who suggested taking a break for two weeks followed by physical and localized massage therapy.When that didn't work she tried different casts.Nothing helped. The prognosis went from bad to worse when she was diagnosed with an elongated ulna,the outside bone in the forearm.Yaffe's ulna was crowding the small bones in her wrist,severely limiting her range of motion and causing pain for someone trying to play tennis.The only solution to continue her tennis career was surgery to shorten the bone,followed by a long recovery."(The doctor) said nine months recovery time and I just broke down,right there in his office,"Yaffe said."I had to call all of my coaches and tell them I was going to get this surgery." Yaffe is accustomed to a busy tennis schedule.She transferred from Saddlebrook Prep in Wesley Chapel,where she practiced five days a week and had tournaments every weekend. Yaffe was not quite ready to accept having no physical activity.She went to the gym diligently to try and maintain her strength and conditioning. "I tried to run to the gym with a cast on my arm one time,"Yaffe said."I guess someone must've seen me and called my parents. They drove out to get me and I kind of got in trouble." She had the surgery last June 13.In December,just six months after the surgery, she started to hit again with her coach.She was able to hit forehands with her right wrist as her left arm recovered. She started playing again on February 9 against Academy at the Lakes.She said she is almost back physically. "The mental part is still coming back to me,"Yaffe said."That's the hardest part." The experience is something she will never forget. "I still have a metal plate and screws in my arm today,but it feels better now than it ever did,"Yaffe said. Yaffe helped the Patriots win a district championship this season,the first in CDS history.The squad followed that with a regional title to reach the 1A state tournament.

The Patriots won a district and regional title this season,the first in school history for any sport,and all of the top four are sophomores or younger. "It's been very exciting for the girls and the coaching staff,"said CDS fourth-year coach Susan Most."The girls played incredibly well all season.Just a great journey for all of us.I'm proud of how they performed at all levels." Freshman Jackie Fitz-Randolph reached the Class 1A No.1 singles final,where she fell to Gainesville PK Young's Jazz Whitaker 7-6 (2),6-1 on April 19. Jackie defeated Cantonment Ransom's Sullivan Annette 2-6,6-1,6-3 in the quarterfinals before dispatching Boca Raton St. Andrews'Caroline Hsu 6-0,6-1 in the semis. Jackie teamed with her sister Lauren,a seventh-grader,for No.1 doubles.The siblings defeated PK Young 6-2,6-4 in the quarters. The Patriots'run ended against Ransom in the semifinals April 19,falling 7-6 (5) 6-4. CDS fought off five match points to earn a break,which got the second set back on serve,but lost the next service game. Most thinks the trip to states will motivate the squad. "They're hungry,"Most said."They want to come back for more.They were able to experience that championship environment.They're ready to come back and work harder."

The wait was worth it for the junior,who threw a complete game with seven strikeouts to help the Wildcats (13-4) beat Class 2A-District 4 tournament host Hernando Christian (15-6).Boynton also had two hits and two RBI,the first of each in the first inning to give her squad a lead they wouldn't relinquish. The Lions got on the board the second when Ashley McKay hit a lead-off triple and scored on an error.Boynton (7-2,1.88 ERA) avoided more damage with two quick outs, the first of 12 straight batters she retired including six Ks thanks in large part to her devastating changeup. "It's a really tough pitch to hit,"said academy sophomore catcher Rebecca Hannah, who had an RBI single."When I'm batting in practice it's tough.It's really offspeed,and if she can get it there it's a big weapon.We'll call it at any point." Boynton said she was having trouble controlling her changeup early,but found the feel for it midway through. "I worked like a year and a half to perfect that pitch,and it's definitely my best pitch," Boynton said."It's a huge factor in games with good hitters like these.When it's on I feel really good,and most people aren't used to a change that offspeed." Hernando Christian mounted a rally in the seventh,recording three hits and scoring their first earned run.Boynton induced a ground ball to sophomore shortstop Lauren Evans with two outs and runners on first and second to end the contest. "I was really nervous in the seventh inning,"said Evans,who scored two runs."I just wanted to get the game over so we could get the trophy."

Steinbrenner moved multiple runners into scoring position during the last five innings,but Chiefs pitcher Rachel Dwyer wouldn't flinch. "We had runners on,but we didn't get those timely hits that we needed,"Sanders said."All of our girls have the potential and we have strong bats.We just needed to come through at those times when we had runners in scoring position,and we didn't do it." Steinbrenner put pressure on Chamberlain with two outs in the seventh. Knoeppel got on with a two-out bunt down the third base line.However,the threat was short lived as Paige Cimino grounded out. The Warriors made the postseason for the second time in the program's three-year history with their 2-0 win over Freedom in the semis April 18.Ramsey came close to her third no-hitter of the season,but it was broken up in the sixth inning. A Patriots'seventh-inning comeback ended with a double play on an attempted squeeze bunt popped up to third baseman Taylor Morrow,who fired the ball to catcher Alia Serafini to finish the contest. Wiregrass Ranch got past Gaither in the first round April 17,but couldn't muster a win against the Chiefs in the other semifinal,falling 12-2 in five innings. Even though her team couldn't hoist the championship trophy,Sanders said she is looking forward to the next round and knows her team is ready. "It really does feel good,"Sanders said. "This is a brand new program and it feels very nice to have started this program,and I think it is definitely coming around over the last three years.I think we're getting established,and I think people think they need to look out for us."

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 was 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. 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.

Anthony, age 7 and Marisa, age 5, are the children of owners Will and Yesmin Martinez. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com CO MM UNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS April 25, 2012 24
