The Missing Man Memorial follows up a commitment hospital administrators made last fall to area veterans groups who participated in the hospitals dedication and first-ever flag raising at its new location.The hospital was dedicated on Nov.11,2011,the same day as Veterans Day. We said then we wanted a permanent place to honor our veterans and its with great honor we are doing so today,said Leigh Massengill,chief executive officer of Medical Center of Trinity. Participating in the Missing Man ceremony were several area veterans groups, including students from the Junior ROTC program at Mitchell High School,USO Tampa Bay and Rolling Thunder,a group that brings awareness to POW/MIA issues. The Florida Director of Rolling Thunder, Jim MoeMoyer,led the emotional Missing Man Ceremony.Massengill,who spoke of the importance the hospital places on veterans and its commitment to their care,introduced Moyer.There are 55,000 veterans living in Pasco County and an estimated 30 percent of Pasco residents have a family connection to the military. Moyer directed six ROTC cadets.Five carried the hat of the branch of the armed services that they represented Air Force, Army,Coast Guard,Marines and Navy and a sixth cadet carried a cap representing MIA/POW groups.The cadets solemnly circled a formally set round table with six place settings.As they passed each place setting,they left a hat at each empty seat to honor servicemen and women who never returned from war. The Missing Man table is on permanent display in the lobby at Medical Center of Trinity and is being overseen by volunteers with USO Tampa Bay,coordinated by chairman Walter Lamerton,who also is a Trinity resident. The Missing Man table is set to be a symbolic reminder for military personnel who never return home: The tablecloth is white to symbolize the purity of men and women who serve in the military. A single red rose in a vase is a reminder that families of the missing keep the faith awaiting their return. A red ribbon tied on the vase is reminiscent of the red ribbons worn on the lapels of thousands on Veterans Day in acknowledgment of missing military personnel. A lit candle symbolizes the unconquerable spirit of the missing. A slice of lemon on the bread plate is a reminder of their bitter fate. Salt on the bread plate symbolizes the tears of families as they await the return of their loved ones. The wine glass is inverted because the missing are not present to join the toast. Medical Center of Trinity is located 12 miles west of Land OLakes on SR 54 in New Port Richey.The Missing Man Memorial is open during hospital hours and is easy to find in the main lobby.

Did You Know...1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Substantially more than 1 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year. The best chances of getting a sunburn are between 10 am and 4 pm More than 90 percent of all skin cancers occur on sunexposed skin. Indoor tanning is just as bad for your skin as sunlight. Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. One American dies from melanoma almost every hour. Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults, 25-29 years old. Melanoma is the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults, 15-29 years old. SPF 30, broad-spectrum and water-resistant sunscreen help prevent skin cancer. Early detection of cancer increases the chances of a full recovery. Dr. Esperanza is located at: 38051 Market Square Zephyrhills, FL 33542 813.780.8085www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com By:Erica Collura As Skin Cancer Awareness Month approaches, Florida Medical Clinic wants to educate the community on the deadliest form of skin cancer, Melanoma.More recently,Dermatologists are finding more skin cancers on younger patients from the age of 18 to 25. American Board Certified Dermatologist, Lowella Esperanza,MD,offers tips to recognizing signs of melanoma as easy as ABCDE's. Melanoma is especially hard to stop once it has spread to other parts of the body.However,it can be readily treated in its earliest stages. Dr.Esperanza stresses the ABCDEs of melanoma:Asymmetry,Border irregularity,Color variability,Diameter and Evolving or changing.This acronym provides key warning signs of melanoma. Most people have a number of brownish spots on their skinfreckles,birthmarks or moles.The majority of these spots are normal,but some may be skin cancers.People need to be more aware of the spots they have on their bodies,Dr.Esperanza said.You should examine your own skin monthly.If you know what a spot looked like before,it is easier to detect abnormalities." Common moles should be round and symmetrical.Early melanomas are asymmetrical,which means a line drawn through the middle would not create matching halves. The borders of early melanomas are often uneven and may have scalloped or notched edges.Common moles have smoother, more even borders. Identifying the color of a melanoma can be tricky.Moles can be a variety of different colors,but common moles are usually a single shade of brown.Varied shades of brown,tan or black are often the first sign of melanoma.As the condition progresses,the colors red,white and blue may appear. Early melanomas tend to grow larger than common moles.Any spot that is about the size of a pencil eraser is of concern,Dr. Esperanza said. Dr.Esperanza recommends seeing a doctor immediately when a mole starts to evolve or change."Change of any kind should be evaluated.Do not ignore a suspicious spot simply because it does not hurt.Skin cancers may be painless,but dangerous at the same time." In Florida,avoiding the sun is nearly impossible.Dr.Esperanza recommends a full body skin exam once a year.Most people couldnt tell you what moles they have on their backs,she said. We can help patients see spots they might not have known they had before." In addition to check-ups,daily applications of SPF 30 sunscreen are vital to preventing skin cancer.Reapply.Reapply.Reapply, Dr. Esperanza said.We can still enjoy our outdoor activities,as long as we are smart about it.Working together forTheLaker / LutzNews& As summer approaches, the beaches get more crowded, the waterparks open their gates and people enjoy the sun-sponsored activities. Dr. Esperanza identifies a sunkissed tan as a serious skin injury. Most people enjoy the summer glow, but the reality is they are opening many doors for skin damage. The sun gives off different rays, UVAand UVB, she said. UV-Arays are directly linked to skin aging, and UVB rays are linked to sun burns. UVArays penetrate the skin deeper than UV-B rays, causing the skin to age quicker. UVArays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent than UVB rays. They are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year and can pierce through clouds and glass. UVB rays are the primary cause of skin reddening and sunburn. Its intensity varies by the season, location and time of day. From April to October, the most significant amount of UVB occurs around 10 am to 4 pm. With the prevalence of indoor tanning and outdoor sun exposure, younger people are developing skin injuries. Dr. Esperanza notes, The healthiest tan comes from a bottle. Whos whoAlthough Born in Staten Island, New York, Dr. Lowella Esperanza moved frequently, living in places including Hawaii, California, Virginia, Maryland while growing up in her military family. She has been a resident of Florida since 1978. She earned her medical degree at the University of South Florida, then she completed an internship year at University of Alabama in Birmingham. After returning to Tampa, she finished her residency in Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery at University of South Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Esperanza has been a vital member of the Florida Medical Clinic team since 1996. She stays busy enjoying time with her three children and husband, Dr. Emilio Dominguez, another Florida Medical Clinic physician. Her favorite pastime is watching her children grow and become more involved in soccer, volleyball and basketball. She loves traveling with her family and is a big fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Rays and Buccaneers. Dr. Esperanza is a compassionate doctor who thoroughly enjoys her interaction with her patients. Her special interest include: skin cancer detection and treatment, skin rejuvenation with Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and medical aesthetics.MeetDr. EsperanzaGOOD HEALTHSkin Cancer:TREATABLE, BEATABLE WITH EARLY DETECTION.Medical Spotlight 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS M ay 2, 2012 6 NATURE NOTESSkunkvine: A real garden stinkerBy B.J. Jarvi sPasco Extens i on Horti cultur i st and Di rectorAbsent many killing freezes this winter, Skunkvine is already taking over Pasco gardens. Fast-growing and resilient, this invasive vine seems impenetrable to assaults to keep it under control. Native to southern Asia, Skunkvine has been pestering gardeners in west-central Florida since 1897. In addition to being a major problem in native plant communities, home landscapes can be quickly over-run by Skunkvine, growing more than 25 feet in a season. Earning its telltale name from the disagreeable odor released when crushed or broken, severed vines will regenerate when broken off. Left to flower, hundreds of seeds will develop to spread throughout the garden and beyond. Aside from persistent hand removal, chemical herbicides may be needed. Good chemical choices contain triclopyr (such as a Brush-B-Gone type of product) or imazapic (be cautious with this long-lasting product as annuals and perennials should not be planted in treated areas for several months following application.) Repeat applications are generally needed or Skunkvine may quickly regenerate and grow out of control. Dispose of or burn all removed vine parts rather than trying to compost as the vine may persist from even small pieces. Do you see a pattern of perseverance here? Gardeners must know that a plant that can survive flooding for over six months, then regrow, is a plant to reckon with. Best of luck eliminating this weed! For more information about invasive garden weeds, check out the University of Florida Extensions website at http://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/hot_topics/enviro nment/invasive_plants.html, or call Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474.

this father and daughter team is the dynamic duo behind Tropical Landscape DesignTony Holbrook is proud of many things his successful landscape design company, longtime relationships with trusted suppliers and hundreds of satised customers whose homes he has transformed with beautiful landscape design. But Tony is most proud of his family, in particular his daughter Kristina Davies, who joined the family business three years ago. Kristinas energy, talent and drive have been paramount to the companys incredible growth in both residential and commercial areas during a time when many landscape companies are downsizing or closing their doors, said Tony. We make a superb team many times were leaving a prospective job and by the time were back at the ofce Kristina has the estimate done and emailed to the customer, said Tony. Tony and his wife, Mary Ellen, have three children who work in the family business: Kristina, a 2008 graduate of St. Petersburg College; Ryan, a pre-med major at USF and Tampa Catholic graduate; and Natalie, a junior at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School. The oldest sibling, Dan, and Mary Ellen, a cardiac nurse at Tampa General Hospital, are the only members of the Land OLakes family who do not spend their weekends at landscaping job sites. Tony, a Tampa native who moved to New Port Richey as a teenager, talked his way into his rst job at age 14 when he told the owner of an Ace Hardware that he could nurse back to health some yellow and pink rose bushes the owner was about to toss out. He offered me a job if I was able to bring the roses back to life and a few weeks later they were healthy enough to sell. The owner kept his promise and I have been in the landscaping business ever since, said Tony. He started his rst landscape maintenance company at age 18. He worked a few years for a contractor at Busch Gardens and that is where his love for tropical design evolved. While Tony and Maryellen were rst married, he had a maintenance business and that is where his hands-on experience really went to the next level. Tony started working with commercial properties and this kept him busy for many years. In 2000 the couple wanted a change from Florida and moved to Tennessee for several years. There Tony opened another landscaping business and expanded into design, where he began to incorporate boulders and water features into his landscapes. The family returned to Florida in 2003, buying a home in Land O Lakes and opening Tropical Landscape Design. Tony began working with Will Martinez, whose family has been in the nursery business in Tampa since 1974, and continues to buy most of his landscaping materials from the Martinez family at The Greenery Nursery in Land OLakes. Tropical Landscape Design grew steadily during the housing boom, but it was not until Kristina joined the rm in 2009 that it expanded commercial landscaping services and really took off. Kristina had just graduated from college with a degree in international business. It was the beginning of the recession and there were no jobs in my eld, said Kristina. I asked my dad for a job, thinking it would just be for a few months. I never imagined the job would turn into a career. Kristina said landscape design is a creative and very rewarding profession. When I was a teenager I wanted to study fashion design, but didnt because it wasnt practical, said Kristina. Believe it or not, landscape design is not so different. Im designing something beautiful for other people something they love and appreciate. Both Tony and Kristina say the father and daughter combination complements each other and brings out their strengths. After 23 years in the business, my fathers knowledge of plants and landscaping is incredible. He is very quick to the point and knows exactly what someone needs, said Kristina. I bring a softer side to the business that works well with clients who want to move a bit slower and want more input in their design. Tropical Landscape Design has a dedicated and experienced team of installers who have worked for the company an average of three years. Our crew is one of the most important things that make us different from other landscaping companies, said Tony. Our workers can be trusted to do a professional job they show up on time and always leave the job site clean and orderly. We treat our employees as well as we treat our family with care, respect, love and sometimes even cupcakes, said Kristina. This is the companys busiest time of year. Much of the work that comes to Tropical Landscape Design is from a referral network that has taken years for Tony to comprise, from building contractors to pool companies to countless customer referrals. We get a lot of jobs because our prices are fair, the plants we use are of exceptional quality and we offer superb customer service, which is sometimes a rarity in this business, said Tony.Tropical Landscape Design5104 N.

lished in the area because of decades of fire suppression by humans,said Stephen Dickman,an environmental specialist for the countys parks,recreation and conservation department. The problem with fire suppression is,it changes the habitat over a period of time, said Bernie Kaiser,a biologist with the countys parks,recreation and conservation department. Forests need fires to burn dead vegetation,to generate regrowth of native plants and grasses and to improve the habitat for wildlife,Dickman said.The oak canopy was shading out plant life on the forest floor, Kaiser added. It would be like you took your rose bush and you put it under your balcony,he said. If fire had been permitted to continue through this system every few years,it would have remained open,Dickman said. Tortoises prefer an open habitat,he said,noting most of the roughly 130 gopher tortoise burrows that were found near the clearing were on wide-open land. The burrows serve as habitat not only for the tortoises,but also for other species, Kaiser said.Theres a whole suite of insects that live in there.There are several rodents that live in there.Theres snakes that live in there. Theyll live in there,alongside the tortoise,or theyll just use it occasionally,as shelter,he said. Clearing for the upland habitat restoration project,in a 25-acre area,was completed in March.Trees that were cleared had diameters ranging from 3 inches to 20 inches.The area represents a small portion of the preserve,which covers hundreds of acres and was purchased through Hillsborough Countys Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program. The preserve has oaks,pine flatwoods, cypress swamps and open pasture,and there are frequent sightings of deer,turkey, wood storks,gopher tortoises,blue herons, ibis and other wildlife. Its a great place for hiking and horseback riding,said Nadine Pedersen,who lives near the preserve. Pedersen said she understands the goal of the clearing,but she thinks the county could have explained it better in advance and could have been more sensitive about the trees that were removed.Instead of heavy equipment knocking down and grinding trees,she would have preferred a more selective removal by crews using chainsaws.She thinks the heavy equipment was disruptive to wildlife. Dickman said he understands why preserve users might be concerned.I can see their point.I can understand why someone would be upset.Its an emotional reaction.If I were in their shoes,I would probably feel similar,he said.I saved some trees.I probably could have saved more.Kaiser characterized the removal of the oaks as sort of a drastic step,but one that was necessary. The only way youre going to reset everything is to come in here and do something drastic to get rid of the hardwood,he said. People may enjoy the beauty of oaks,he noted,but for a lot of those species that live there,its no different than the intersection of Kennedy and Nebraska -its simply not suitable habitat. While wetlands creation tends to instantly add beauty to an area,uplands restoration generally doesnt,he said. We like to say,For the first few years, theyre very ugly babies,Kaiser said. The county also has been using prescribed burns in small areas to clear debris on the forest floor. When we do burns,we burn on a very specific wind direction and humidity and dispersion,to manage the smoke impact on the surrounding areas roads,highways, Dickman said. Once plant life has a chance to rebound, the area will look much different,Dickman and Kaiser said. When we were surveying,we found some areas that had some pretty good ground cover.When we apply fire to this, those plants will be able to produce flower and produce seed and begin seeding the place in,Dickman said. If you come back out here at the first of September,youll see a radical difference, Kaiser said. www.TheSmileSmith.com813-935-9414 Smith is the name. Smiles are my trade. Do you have an appointment that needs to be made?Call today for a complimentary second opinion.Learning Gate is the only school in the Tampa Bay region to receive the designation,the environmental counterpart to the nations Blue Ribbon School award,a prestigious honor that recognizes academic excellence.Awards were announced April 23 by U.S.Secretary of Education Arne Duncan,White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson. Only three schools in Florida received the honor;the other two are in Miami-Dade and West Palm.Just eight public charter schools across the nation,including Learning Gate,were included in the inaugural group of Green Ribbon Schools.Florida is among 29 states and the District of Columbia with schools on the list. Patti Girard,CEO and founder of Learning Gate Community School,was delighted by the honor. Its great,said Girard,who founded the school more than a quarter-century ago. Girard is pleased that national leaders are encouraging schools to follow sustainable practices,so they can pass along those values to children as they grow up. They understand that weve got to teach it,Girard said. At Learning Gate,the schools motto, Nature is Our Best Teacher,is played out in all sorts of ways across campus. A visit to the campus on any given day will find children working in the schools garden,tromping through the woods to observe birds being tagged for a research study,knocking over plastic liter bottles in a game of outdoor bowling or engaged in lessons in the first classrooms in the nation to receive platinum certification under the LEED for Schools rating system through the U.S.Green Building Council.LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. State departments of education chose the nominees.Schools selected for the award create greenenvironments by reducing environmental impact,promoting health,and ensuring high-quality environmental and outdoor education,according to national Green Ribbon program documents. Green Ribbon Schools demonstrate compelling examples of the ways schools can expand their coursework while also helping children build real world skill sets, cut school costs,and provide healthy learning environments,Duncan said,in a news release. More than 350 schools completed applications,which were submitted to state education agencies.Of those,state agencies submitted about 100 for consideration. Schools receiving the designation include 66 public schools and 12 private schools. LEARNING GATE,from page 1 High school public hearingA hearing on a proposed special use permit for a school for sixththrough 12th-graders in Lutz is slated for 6 p.m. on May 14 at the Frederick B.Karl County Center at 601 E.Kennedy Blvd.,in downtown Tampa.Learning Gate Community School wants to open a campus that will one day have about 1,000 students in grades six through eight at the site,which is near the intersection of US 41 and Sunset Lane in Lutz.

His fourth seeded Cowboys (16-9-1) knocked off No.1 Steinbrenner in the semifinals,but committed six errors in the contest.Permuy told his players they better get to work to ensure it didnt happen again. Gaither responded with an offensive explosion en route to the programs 11th district title with a 10-6 victory over No.2 Freedom April 26. I didnt think our pregame preparation was going the right way,so I had to shut the clubhouse down a little bit and got after some people,Permuy said.I think it paid off. Maybe that was the difference,or maybe they just felt like it was time to start doing it. It didnt take long for the Cowboysbats to heat up.Center fielder Hayden Kelley doubled over his counterpart to start the first inning.After shortstop Oscar Mercado was plunked,first baseman Jose Gonzalez blasted a three-run homer to give his team the lead. The Patriots (15-9) answered with a run in the bottom of the first.Kyle Schindler reached on a lead-off walk and scored after three errors,the last a fielding miscue by Mercado. Permuy told the team it couldnt have another defensive mistake if it wanted to be a champion. I said thats our allotment for the game, Permuy said. We cant make anymore. In the second,Gaither got extra-base hits from Eddie Pastrana,Chris Torres and Kelley. Torres,who finished 3 for 3 with a trio of doubles,said his bat sparked at the right time. When youre in a slump you just got to stick with it,Torres said.Its baseball.It happens,and I just had to go out there and give it my all.I couldnt stay in a slump forever. Starting pitcher Matt Frey kept Freedoms offense on its heels,striking out 10 for the win.The Patriots wouldnt go down without a fight,starting a sixth-inning rally.Frey walked Devin Sheppard with the bases loaded,followed by a Cam Morgan double to clear the bags to draw Freedom within four.However, the calm demeanor from Gaither reliever Alex Milne paid off,and the team played through the jam to seal the win.The one thing about these guys is they havent given up all year,Permuy said.They really believe in each other.When you say team,this is probably the closest weve had in years. Gaithers path to the district crown was anything but routine,as the host overcame two deficits to Steinbrenner to win 10-9 in the semis that needed eight innings April 24. The Warriors (17-8) jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second thanks to five Cowboys errors.Gaither wouldnt panic,answering with a five-run third. Steinbrenners Cole Gordon belted a three-run homer off Gaither starter Evan Gainey in the fourth to put his team on top by four. The Cowboys chipped away and delivered the fatal blow in the eighth when Mercado delivered a two-out single,stole second and third and scored on a passed ball to complete the comeback. Freedom defeated No.3 Wiregrass Ranch 5-2 in the other semi to capture playoff berth for the first time in program history. It feels good overall,said Freedom coach A.J.Leppla.Obviously the outcome (in the finals) isnt what we wanted,but to be here and everything is the first time in school history;weve had a lot of success this year,and Im very proud of our young men.The Bishop McLaughlin baseball team lost the Class 3A-District 8 championship 32 to Tampa Prep April 27. The host Hurricanes (18-9) took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a Tanner Koch single,but the Terrapins (16-9) tied the score in the third and took the lead with a home run by Tyler Jarrell in the ninth.

The three-year starter at cornerback announced his plans April 23 to sign with the Division II program in the Sunshine State Conference. What really interested me about the school was their engineering program, Fernandez said.Thats what I want to do. Once I saw the football program it just topped everything off. The Panthers will play their first season in 2013.The ability to help create a new program appealed to Fernandez as it was similar to what he experienced when Steinbrenner opened three years ago.I really liked the building,Fernandez said.Theres no backlog of players in front of me at my position,so Im looking forward to getting out there and helping get things started right away like I did at Steinbrenner.Warriors coach Floyd Graham said Fernandez has been a big part of the defense since coming from Sickles after his freshman year.

The Warriors were fourth last year at regionals while competing in Class 2A.The squad moved up to 3A and rose to the challenge by scoring 41 points. You have 30-something teams,so you have to come out and compete strong to finish second,said Steinbrenner coach Ladd Baldwin.When you come to a big meet like this you want to know youve prepared them the right way. The Warriors set the tone in the days first race.The 4x800-meter relay team was in sixth place on the final lap,but Lauren Garris made up ground to finish fourth (9 minutes 55.65 seconds),the last advancing spot. They made a big move to qualify for states,and I think that showed everyone OK we can do this,Baldwin said.They were seeded seventh and ran 13 seconds faster than the school record. Jessica Brewer placed fourth in the long jump with a new personal record (PR) 16 feet 11.5 inches. When I was taking my last jump I knew I was fourth or fifth,so I told myself jump a little bit farther,Brewer said.Pull your heels up more and do it. Alexis Wright qualified in her three events,placing second in the 100 hurdles (14.65) and triple (37-3.75) and claiming the 300 hurdles crown (45.48),her last event of the day. I wasnt satisfied with how I did this morning,said Wright,who won regionals in her three events last year.Im definitely capable of more. Baldwin said Wrights ability to rebound in her final event shows her toughness. She feels like people expect her to do well,and she has that internal pressure, Baldwin said.Shes going in her best events, and we have another week to get her ready. Wrights championship came from Lane 2 after finishing seventh in prelims. The lane youre in is just a number, Wright said.Everyone is running the same distance.I laid my heart on the line and went for it. Wright won the 100 hurdles state title last year and said the regional performance is fuel. Theres always someone out there better than you,Wright said.Its either go get them,or youre going to settle.Im not one to settle.My flame is burning,and Im ready to go out there and get anyone. The Steinbrenner distance boys also showed off.The 4x800 won by finishing in 8:05.8.Three members of that relay qualified individually,Matt Magee in the 800 (second place,1:57.4) and Tyler and Zach Lima by finishing second (9:39.95) and third (9:40.03),respectively,in the 3,200. Its our first states,and its actually our first time in regions,Tyler said.Zach pushed the pace.Without him I would have slowed down some. Zach,who PRed by 23 seconds,said he wanted to keep up with his twin. Thats how I run in practice,Zach said. We both changed our training this year.It was all about pace work and strength.We basically had no light workout days since cross country. The 3A state meet is May 4 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Gaither hurdlers Samson Moore and Paul Barrett won the boys 110and 300-meter hurdles at the Class 3A regional meet April 25 at Leto. Moore,a freshman,set a new school record by finishing in 14.36 seconds.I didnt suspect to get to states,but I thought if I kept up my goals Id make it,Moore said.I had a bad start.I was probably last out of the blocks.I have to get better at that.Barrett,a senior,completed the sweep by posting a personal record 37.85 to make consecutive state appearances.Barrett said he will share with Moore what states is like so they both have a chance to medal. I didnt know what to expect last year, Barrett said.I came out and those guys were fast.I didnt even make the finals.This year I want to make the finals.Thats the first hurdle. The Gaither girls advanced Kiana Bryant, who took third in the 100 (12.29). The 3A state meet is May 4 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Freedom junior Sandra Akachukwu left the Class 4A regional track meet at Leto April 25 with more individual championships than anyone. The King transfer claimed the long jump (17 feet 7 inches),her first event of the day, along with titles in the 100-meter (12.41 seconds) and 200 (25.33).She was also second in the high jump (5-4) It feels really good,Akachukwu said with a smile.It tells me that I really belong. Akachukwu was doing but smiling the week before at districts when she won the 100,but was runner-up in the other events. Patriots assistant Ryan McGee,who coaches Freedoms sprint and jump athletes,said Akachukwu was disappointed by clearing 5 in the high jump at districts, which affected the rest of her day. It all started when she won the long jump today,McGee said.We knew what to expect the rest of the meet. Akachukwu said winning the long jump gave her the confidence needed to claim the trifecta.McGee added making it to states in her events is extremely difficult. Thats a hard four events she does, McGee said.Youve got a lot of running in the 100 and 200 plus jumping as hard as you can.That separates her.I cant stress how proud I am of her. Freedoms boys send the 4x100 (fourth place,43.24) and 4x400 (third place, 3:30.14) relay teams after none of their athletes qualified last season. Our coaches have been pushing us every practice,said Anthony Hendry,who runs the anchor of the 4x400.Theres no messing around,so when we get to the meet its game time. The 4A state meet is May 5 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Bishop McLaughlins Evan Barhonovich placed seventh at the Class 1A state meet April 27.The senior threw the discus 136 feet 6 inches.No other area athlete finished in the top eight of their event to earn a medal.Warriors earn regional runner-up honors Steinbrenner senior Alexis Wright won the 300 hurdles and took second in the 100 hurdles and triple jump at regionals.

The Wildcats (14-4) defeated the Lions (16-7) the previous three meetings this season,but only by a combined five runs.The academy completed the sweep with a 3-0 win April 27 to reach the doorstep of the final four for the first time. Our school doesnt have a history with winning in a lot of sports,said catcher Rebecca Hannah.We wanted to come out here and prove ourselves. On the mound for the academy was Sydney Boynton (8-2,1.78 ERA).The junior faced the Lions in the first three meetings. She used her overwhelming changeup to freeze Hernando Christian in the district finals but opted for more curveballs, dropballs and screwballs in the playoffs. I faced them four times,and they kept saying watch the changeup,Sydney said. They were waiting for it,so I tried to sneak something past them,not my changeup.I threw it when it was appropriate. The strategy worked.Sydney threw a complete game two-hitter with three walks and nine strikeouts,three on her change. They have some great hitters,so its tough every time,Sydney said.It was tough for us too hitting wise until the fifth. Sydneys sister,Skyler,led off the fifth with a single.The Wildcats loaded the bases after an intentional walk to Lauren Evans and Sydney reaching on an error. Hannah stepped to the plate and hit the first pitch to drive in the winning run. I was thinking Ive got to hit this girl early,Hannah said.Shes a good pitcher. Weve struggled with her. Sydney scored in the inning when an illegal pitch was called,and Hannah was driven in on a single by Brenna Walton to go up 30.The academy needed six more outs,but first-year Wildcats coach Jerry English gave them something else to focus on. I told them we were losing by one run, English said.We cant play any different losing by one run or ahead by three.We cant go back on our heels or well fall down.

(Photo by Kyle LoJacono)Wildcats make regional finals Closer LookAN ADVERTISER PROFILE Lutz-area residents have waited more than 100 years, since before the town was founded in 1909, for an authentic Mexican restaurant to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This Saturday, the annual May 5th celebration commemorating Mexican heritage and pride comes to downtown Lutz with an all-day celebration at Elsas Mexican Restaurant and Sports Cantina. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. with discounted Bad Juan margaritas, Mexican beer on tap and fabulous home-cooked Tex-Mex dishes. Well have all 26 employees working and ready to show customers a fabulous time said Pete Berberich, who has managed the restaurant since it opened last September. Were planning controlled chaos so that everyone will enjoy the day, especially families and kids. Berberich and co-manager, Jeff Kenkel, both have roots in Dayton, Ohio, home of Elsas four sister stores. Petes father, Chuck, has been best friends with the companys owner for 65 years. Jeffs dad was head chef at the chain for many years and is the originator of the restaurants most popular menu items. Ive known Pete his entire life and that was one of the attractions of opening a restaurant here in Lutz, said owner Bill Hemmert, a part-time resident of St. Petersburg Beach who has held season tickets to the Tampa Bay Rays and Lightning since the teams first seasons here.Before becoming a restaurateur in 1979, Hemmert was a defense attorney. He got into the bar business when he and three attorney friends talked about opening a bar where they could drink liquor and eat good food for free. Hemmert volunteered that he knew a perfect location in the blue-collar neighborhood of East Dayton where he grew up. Not long afterward the men were in business running their new restaurant as well as their law practices. They named their restaurant Elsas after the original owner, Elsa Bonner, a hardworking woman from the Kentucky coalfields who had owned the bar since 1947. She came to cater to Hispanics who worked at nearby automotive plants with her Tex-Mex dishes. I tell the story that it took four idiot lawyers to get into this business and I was the only one foolish enough to still be standing eight years later, said Hemmert. Over the next 30 years, Hemmert and his wife, Karen, raised three children and added three more restaurants to their small Dayton chain. Along the way they developed their trademark Bad Juan margaritas, by far the companys most popular mixed drink. We spent three years perfecting the Bad Juan, said Hemmert, which he explained is a clear, lime-based drink made from tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Eventually he added the Bad Juanita, a strawberry margarita popular with women and young adults. Our Bad Juans are very smooth for a margarita, said Hemmert. People like them because they are delicious and also for their strong alcohol content, which is equivalent to the amount of liquor found in a bottle of wine. Customer demand for Bad Juan drinks are so great that Hemmert is working with Republic National Distributors in Tampa to sell liter bottles of Bad Juan margaritas in liquor stores. Since the beginning of the year, Bad Juan margaritas have been sold at Tampa Bay Lightning games and other Forum events. Were hoping to have our bottled Bad Juan liters stocked in liquor stores in Florida and Ohio by this summer, said Hemmert. Hemmert decided to open his fifth store in Lutz because it is where Pete and Molly Berberich live. I knew Tampa Bays growth was to the north and I knew I wanted Pete to manage the business, said Hemmert. Pete found this great location close to his home and I knew we would be successful here because Pete and Molly know so many people and word of mouth is so important in running a restaurant. Pete and Molly have lived in Lutz off County Line Road for 18 years. The couple owns Were In Stitches, an embroidery business on North Florida Avenue that customizes shirts, hats and other items for businesses, schools and sports groups. Their three children attend area schools (Most Holy Redeemer, Rushe Middle, and Tampa Catholic). Elsas has an expansive menu of TexMex and American appetizers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Its most popular menu item is the Super Burrito, a 10-inch flour tortilla filled with refried beans and choice of ground beef, shredded beef, chicken, chorizo or pork carnitas that is topped with a mild sauce, lettuce, pico de gallo and aged cheddar cheese. The restaurant is open daily at 11 a.m. and closes at 11 p.m., except Sunday when it closes at 10 p.m. Its easy to find, located behind the McDonalds in old downtown Lutz.Cinco de Mayo Celebration this Saturday at Elsas in Lutz Pete Berberich, left, manager of Elsas Mexican Restaurant and Sports Cantina, and Bill Hemmert, owner of the Lutz restaurant and four other Elsas locations in Dayton, Ohio.

The county won the award for becoming one of Florida's first counties to adopt the mobility fee as a replacement of transportation impact fees.The Pasco Economic Development Council partnered with the county to craft the program and gain support from the development community.The new fee schedule dramatically lowers the cost of office and industrial development in Pasco County.For example,Pasco's mobility fee for office,industrial and transit-oriented development along the US 19 and SR 54/56 corridors is $0,the intent being to stimulate construction and job creation. Pasco County also took first place in the development/infrastructure category for the mobility fee program,and first place in the cultural/sports/recreation category for the Pasco County Starkey Wilderness Park Trail Project,phases I through IV.Pasco's Elderly Nutrition Program won an honorable mention.

PRIVATE PERSONAL TRAINING STUDIOfor women813.909.493924140 SR 54, Suite 103 Lutz, FL 33559 Samantha TaylorPersonal Trainer & Fat Loss Expert HOW SHE KEPT 55 LBS. OFF FOR 4 YEARS! "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. 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!

The Missing Man Memorial follows up a commitment hospital administrators made last fall to area veterans groups who participated in the hospital's dedication and first-ever flag raising at its new location.The hospital was dedicated on Nov.11,2011,the same day as Veteran's Day. "We said then we wanted a permanent place to honor our veterans and it's with great honor we are doing so today,"said Leigh Massengill,chief executive officer of Medical Center of Trinity. Participating in the Missing Man ceremony were several area veterans groups, including students from the Junior ROTC program at Mitchell High School,USO Tampa Bay and Rolling Thunder,a group that brings awareness to POW/MIA issues. The Florida Director of Rolling Thunder, Jim "Moe"Moyer,led the emotional Missing Man Ceremony.Massengill,who spoke of the importance the hospital places on veterans and its commitment to their care,introduced Moyer.There are 55,000 veterans living in Pasco County and an estimated 30 percent of Pasco residents have a family connection to the military. Moyer directed six ROTC cadets.Five carried the hat of the branch of the armed services that they represented Air Force, Army,Coast Guard,Marines and Navy and a sixth cadet carried a cap representing MIA/POW groups.The cadets solemnly circled a formally set round table with six place settings.As they passed each place setting,they left a hat at each empty seat to honor servicemen and women who never returned from war. The Missing Man table is on permanent display in the lobby at Medical Center of Trinity and is being overseen by volunteers with USO Tampa Bay,coordinated by chairman Walter Lamerton,who also is a Trinity resident. The Missing Man table is set to be a symbolic reminder for military personnel who never return home: The tablecloth is white to symbolize the purity of men and women who serve in the military. A single red rose in a vase is a reminder that families of the missing keep the faith awaiting their return. A red ribbon tied on the vase is reminiscent of the red ribbons worn on the lapels of thousands on Veteran's Day in acknowledgment of missing military personnel. A lit candle symbolizes the unconquerable spirit of the missing. A slice of lemon on the bread plate is a reminder of their bitter fate. Salt on the bread plate symbolizes the tears of families as they await the return of their loved ones. The wine glass is inverted because the missing are not present to join the toast. Medical Center of Trinity is located 12 miles west of Land O'Lakes on SR 54 in New Port Richey.The Missing Man Memorial is open during hospital hours and is easy to find in the main lobby.

Did You Know...1 in 5 Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer. Substantially more than 1 million cases of skin cancer are diagnosed in the United States every year. The best chances of getting a sunburn are between 10 am and 4 pm More than 90 percent of all skin cancers occur on sunexposed skin. Indoor tanning is just as bad for your skin as sunlight. Basal Cell Carcinoma is the most common form of skin cancer. Melanoma is the deadliest form of skin cancer. One American dies from melanoma almost every hour. Melanoma is the most common form of cancer for young adults, 25-29 years old. Melanoma is the second most common cancer in adolescents and young adults, 15-29 years old. SPF 30, broad-spectrum and water-resistant sunscreen help prevent skin cancer. Early detection of cancer increases the chances of a full recovery. Dr. Esperanza is located at: 38051 Market Square € Zephyrhills, FL 33542 € 813.780.8085www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com By:Erica Collura As Skin Cancer Awareness Month approaches, Florida Medical Clinic wants to educate the community on the deadliest form of skin cancer, Melanoma.More recently,Dermatologists are finding more skin cancers on younger patients from the age of 18 to 25. American Board Certified Dermatologist, Lowella Esperanza,MD,offers tips to recognizing signs of melanoma as easy as ABCDE's. Melanoma is especially hard to stop once it has spread to other parts of the body.However,it can be readily treated in its earliest stages. Dr.Esperanza stresses the ABCDEs of melanoma:Asymmetry,Border irregularity,Color variability,Diameter and Evolving or changing.This acronym provides key warning signs of melanoma. Most people have a number of brownish spots on their skin„freckles,birthmarks or moles.The majority of these spots are normal,but some may be skin cancers.People need to be more aware of the spots they have on their bodies,ŽDr.Esperanza said.You should examine your own skin monthly.If you know what a spot looked like before,it is easier to detect abnormalities." Common moles should be round and symmetrical.Early melanomas are asymmetrical,which means a line drawn through the middle would not create matching halves. The borders of early melanomas are often uneven and may have scalloped or notched edges.Common moles have smoother, more even borders. Identifying the color of a melanoma can be tricky.Moles can be a variety of different colors,but common moles are usually a single shade of brown.Varied shades of brown,tan or black are often the first sign of melanoma.As the condition progresses,the colors red,white and blue may appear. Early melanomas tend to grow larger than common moles.Any spot that is about the size of a pencil eraser is of concern,ŽDr. Esperanza said. Dr.Esperanza recommends seeing a doctor immediately when a mole starts to evolve or change."Change of any kind should be evaluated.Do not ignore a suspicious spot simply because it does not hurt.Skin cancers may be painless,but dangerous at the same time." In Florida,avoiding the sun is nearly impossible.Dr.Esperanza recommends a full body skin exam once a year.Most people couldnt tell you what moles they have on their backs,Žshe said. We can help patients see spots they might not have known they had before." In addition to check-ups,daily applications of SPF 30 sunscreen are vital to preventing skin cancer.Reapply.Reapply.Reapply, Dr. Esperanza said.We can still enjoy our outdoor activities,as long as we are smart about it.ŽWorking together forThe Laker / Lutz News& As summer approaches, the beaches get more crowded, the waterparks open their gates and people enjoy the sun-sponsored activities. Dr. Esperanza identifies a sunkissed tan as a serious skin injury. Most people enjoy the summer glow, but the reality is they are opening many doors for skin damage. "The sun gives off different rays, UVAand UVB," she said. "UV-Arays are directly linked to skin aging, and UVB rays are linked to sun burns." UVArays penetrate the skin deeper than UV-B rays, causing the skin to age quicker. UVArays are 30 to 50 times more prevalent than UVB rays. They are present with relatively equal intensity during all daylight hours throughout the year and can pierce through clouds and glass. UVB rays are the primary cause of skin reddening and sunburn. Its intensity varies by the season, location and time of day. From April to October, the most significant amount of UVB occurs around 10 am to 4 pm. With the prevalence of indoor tanning and outdoor sun exposure, younger people are developing skin injuries. Dr. Esperanza notes, "The healthiest tan comes from a bottle." Whos whoAlthough Born in Staten Island, New York, Dr. Lowella Esperanza moved frequently, living in places including Hawaii, California, Virginia, Maryland while growing up in her military family. She has been a resident of Florida since 1978. She earned her medical degree at the University of South Florida, then she completed an internship year at University of Alabama in Birmingham. After returning to Tampa, she finished her residency in Dermatology and Cutaneous Surgery at University of South Florida College of Medicine. Dr. Esperanza has been a vital member of the Florida Medical Clinic team since 1996. She stays busy enjoying time with her three children and husband, Dr. Emilio Dominguez, another Florida Medical Clinic physician. Her favorite pastime is watching her children grow and become more involved in soccer, volleyball and basketball. She loves traveling with her family and is a big fan of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Rays and Buccaneers. Dr. Esperanza is a compassionate doctor who thoroughly enjoys her interaction with her patients. Her special interest include: skin cancer detection and treatment, skin rejuvenation with Botox, Juvederm, Radiesse, Sculptra and medical aesthetics.MeetDr. Esperanza GOOD HEALTHSkin Cancer:TREATABLE, BEATABLE WITH EARLY DETECTION.Medical Spotlight 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS M ay 2, 2012 6 NATURE NOTES Skunkvine: A real garden stinkerBy B.J. Jarv i s Pasco Extens i on Hort i cultur i st and D i rector Absent many killing freezes this winter, Skunkvine is already taking over Pasco gardens. Fast-growing and resilient, this invasive vine seems impenetrable to assaults to keep it under control. Native to southern Asia, Skunkvine has been pestering gardeners in west-central Florida since 1897. In addition to being a major problem in native plant communities, home landscapes can be quickly over-run by Skunkvine, growing more than 25 feet in a season. Earning its telltale name from the disagreeable odor released when crushed or broken, severed vines will regenerate when broken off. Left to flower, hundreds of seeds will develop to spread throughout the garden and beyond. Aside from persistent hand removal, chemical herbicides may be needed. Good chemical choices contain triclopyr (such as a Brush-B-Gone type of product) or imazapic (be cautious with this long-lasting product as annuals and perennials should not be planted in treated areas for several months following application.) Repeat applications are generally needed or Skunkvine may quickly regenerate and grow out of control. Dispose of or burn all removed vine parts rather than trying to compost as the vine may persist from even small pieces. Do you see a pattern of perseverance here? Gardeners must know that a plant that can survive flooding for over six months, then regrow, is a plant to reckon with. Best of luck eliminating this weed! For more information about invasive garden weeds, check out the University of Florida Extension’s website at http://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/hot_topics/enviro nment/invasive_plants.html, or call Pasco Extension at (352) 518-0474. – B J Ja r v i s i s ho r t i cultu r e agent and d ir ecto r of Pasco Extens i on Se r v i ce, a pa r tne r sh i p between Un i ve r s i ty of Flo ri da and Pasco County.

this father and daughter team is the dynamic duo behind Tropical Landscape DesignTony Holbrook is proud of many things … his successful landscape design company, longtime relationships with trusted suppliers and hundreds of satis“ed customers whose homes he has transformed with beautiful landscape design. But Tony is most proud of his family, in particular his daughter Kristina Davies, who joined the family business three years ago. Kristinas energy, talent and drive have been paramount to the companys incredible growth in both residential and commercial areas during a time when many landscape companies are downsizing or closing their doors, said Tony. We make a superb team „ many times were leaving a prospective job and by the time were back at the of“ce Kristina has the estimate done and emailed to the customer,Ž said Tony. Tony and his wife, Mary Ellen, have three children who work in the family business: Kristina, a 2008 graduate of St. Petersburg College; Ryan, a pre-med major at USF and Tampa Catholic graduate; and Natalie, a junior at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School. The oldest sibling, Dan, and Mary Ellen, a cardiac nurse at Tampa General Hospital, are the only members of the Land OLakes family who do not spend their weekends at landscaping job sites. Tony, a Tampa native who moved to New Port Richey as a teenager, talked his way into his “rst job at age 14 when he told the owner of an Ace Hardware that he could nurse back to health some yellow and pink rose bushes the owner was about to toss out. He offered me a job if I was able to bring the roses back to life and a few weeks later they were healthy enough to sell. The owner kept his promise and I have been in the landscaping business ever since,Ž said Tony. He started his “rst landscape maintenance company at age 18. He worked a few years for a contractor at Busch Gardens and that is where his love for tropical design evolved. While Tony and Maryellen were “ rst married, he had a maintenance business and that is where his hands-on experience really went to the next level. Tony started working with commercial properties and this kept him busy for many years. In 2000 the couple wanted a change from Florida and moved to Tennessee for several years. There Tony opened another landscaping business and expanded into design, where he began to incorporate boulders and water features into his landscapes. The family returned to Florida in 2003, buying a home in Land O Lakes and opening Tropical Landscape Design. Tony began working with Will Martinez, whose family has been in the nursery business in Tampa since 1974, and continues to buy most of his landscaping materials from the Martinez family at The Greenery Nursery in Land OLakes. Tropical Landscape Design grew steadily during the housing boom, but it was not until Kristina joined the “rm in 2009 that it expanded commercial landscaping services and really took off. Kristina had just graduated from college with a degree in international business. It was the beginning of the recession and there were no jobs in my “ eld,Ž said Kristina. I asked my dad for a job, thinking it would just be for a few months. I never imagined the job would turn into a career.Ž Kristina said landscape design is a creative and very rewarding profession. When I was a teenager I wanted to study fashion design, but didnt because it wasnt practical,Ž said Kristina. Believe it or not, landscape design is not so different. Im designing something beautiful for other people „ something they love and appreciate.Ž Both Tony and Kristina say the father and daughter combination complements each other and brings out their strengths. After 23 years in the business, my fathers knowledge of plants and landscaping is incredible. He is very quick to the point and knows exactly what someone needs,Ž said Kristina. I bring a softer side to the business that works well with clients who want to move a bit slower and want more input in their design.Ž Tropical Landscape Design has a dedicated and experienced team of installers who have worked for the company an average of three years. Our crew is one of the most important things that make us different from other landscaping companies,Ž said Tony. Our workers can be trusted to do a professional job „ they show up on time and always leave the job site clean and orderly.Ž We treat our employees as well as we treat our family „ with care, respect, love and sometimes even cupcakes,Ž said Kristina. This is the companys busiest time of year. Much of the work that comes to Tropical Landscape Design is from a referral network that has taken years for Tony to comprise, from building contractors to pool companies to countless customer referrals. We get a lot of jobs because our prices are fair, the plants we use are of exceptional quality and we offer superb customer service, which is sometimes a rarity in this business,Ž said Tony.Tropical Landscape Design 5104 N.

lished in the area because of decades of fire suppression by humans,said Stephen Dickman,an environmental specialist for the county's parks,recreation and conservation department. "The problem with fire suppression is,it changes the habitat over a period of time," said Bernie Kaiser,a biologist with the county's parks,recreation and conservation department. Forests need fires to burn dead vegetation,to generate regrowth of native plants and grasses and to improve the habitat for wildlife,Dickman said.The oak canopy was shading out plant life on the forest floor, Kaiser added. "It would be like you took your rose bush and you put it under your balcony,"he said. "If fire had been permitted to continue through this system every few years,it would have remained open,"Dickman said. "Tortoises prefer an open habitat,"he said,noting most of the roughly 130 gopher tortoise burrows that were found near the clearing were on wide-open land. The burrows serve as habitat not only for the tortoises,but also for other species, Kaiser said."There's a whole suite of insects that live in there.There are several rodents that live in there.There's snakes that live in there. "They'll live in there,alongside the tortoise,or they'll just use it occasionally,as shelter,"he said. Clearing for the upland habitat restoration project,in a 25-acre area,was completed in March.Trees that were cleared had diameters ranging from 3 inches to 20 inches.The area represents a small portion of the preserve,which covers hundreds of acres and was purchased through Hillsborough County's Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection Program. The preserve has oaks,pine flatwoods, cypress swamps and open pasture,and there are frequent sightings of deer,turkey, wood storks,gopher tortoises,blue herons, ibis and other wildlife. It's a great place for hiking and horseback riding,said Nadine Pedersen,who lives near the preserve. Pedersen said she understands the goal of the clearing,but she thinks the county could have explained it better in advance and could have been more sensitive about the trees that were removed.Instead of heavy equipment knocking down and grinding trees,she would have preferred a more selective removal by crews using chainsaws.She thinks the heavy equipment was disruptive to wildlife. Dickman said he understands why preserve users might be concerned."I can see their point.I can understand why someone would be upset.It's an emotional reaction.If I were in their shoes,I would probably feel similar,"he said."I saved some trees.I probably could have saved more."Kaiser characterized the removal of the oaks as "sort of a drastic step,"but one that was necessary. "The only way you're going to reset everything is to come in here and do something drastic to get rid of the hardwood,"he said. People may enjoy the beauty of oaks,he noted,"but for a lot of those species that live there,it's no different than the intersection of Kennedy and Nebraska -it's simply not suitable habitat." While wetlands creation tends to instantly add beauty to an area,uplands restoration generally doesn't,he said. "We like to say,For the first few years, they're very ugly babies,'"Kaiser said. The county also has been using prescribed burns in small areas to clear debris on the forest floor. "When we do burns,we burn on a very specific wind direction and humidity and dispersion,to manage the smoke impact on the surrounding areas roads,highways," Dickman said. Once plant life has a chance to rebound, the area will look much different,Dickman and Kaiser said. "When we were surveying,we found some areas that had some pretty good ground cover.When we apply fire to this, those plants will be able to produce flower and produce seed and begin seeding the place in,"Dickman said. "If you come back out here at the first of September,you'll see a radical difference," Kaiser said. www.TheSmileSmith.com813-935-9414 Smith is the name. Smiles are my trade.

Learning Gate is the only school in the Tampa Bay region to receive the designation,the environmental counterpart to the nation's Blue Ribbon School award,a prestigious honor that recognizes academic excellence.Awards were announced April 23 by U.S.Secretary of Education Arne Duncan,White House Council on Environmental Quality Chair Nancy Sutley and Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa Jackson. Only three schools in Florida received the honor;the other two are in Miami-Dade and West Palm.Just eight public charter schools across the nation,including Learning Gate,were included in the inaugural group of Green Ribbon Schools.Florida is among 29 states and the District of Columbia with schools on the list. Patti Girard,CEO and founder of Learning Gate Community School,was delighted by the honor. "It's great,"said Girard,who founded the school more than a quarter-century ago. Girard is pleased that national leaders are encouraging schools to follow sustainable practices,so they can pass along those values to children as they grow up. "They understand that we've got to teach it,"Girard said. At Learning Gate,the school's motto, "Nature is Our Best Teacher,"is played out in all sorts of ways across campus. A visit to the campus on any given day will find children working in the school's garden,tromping through the woods to observe birds being tagged for a research study,knocking over plastic liter bottles in a game of outdoor bowling or engaged in lessons in the first classrooms in the nation to receive platinum certification under the LEED for Schools rating system through the U.S.Green Building Council.LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design. State departments of education chose the nominees.Schools selected for the award create "green"environments by reducing environmental impact,promoting health,and ensuring high-quality environmental and outdoor education,according to national Green Ribbon program documents. "Green Ribbon Schools demonstrate compelling examples of the ways schools can expand their coursework while also helping children build real world skill sets, cut school costs,and provide healthy learning environments,"Duncan said,in a news release.

His fourth seeded Cowboys (16-9-1) knocked off No.1 Steinbrenner in the semifinals,but committed six errors in the contest.Permuy told his players they better get to work to ensure it didn't happen again. Gaither responded with an offensive explosion en route to the program's 11th district title with a 10-6 victory over No.2 Freedom April 26. "I didn't think our pregame preparation was going the right way,so I had to shut the clubhouse down a little bit and got after some people,"Permuy said."I think it paid off. Maybe that was the difference,or maybe they just felt like it was time to start doing it." It didn't take long for the Cowboys'bats to heat up.Center fielder Hayden Kelley doubled over his counterpart to start the first inning.After shortstop Oscar Mercado was plunked,first baseman Jose Gonzalez blasted a three-run homer to give his team the lead. The Patriots (15-9) answered with a run in the bottom of the first.Kyle Schindler reached on a lead-off walk and scored after three errors,the last a fielding miscue by Mercado. Permuy told the team it couldn't have another defensive mistake if it wanted to be a champion. "I said that's our allotment for the game,' "Permuy said." We can't make anymore.'" In the second,Gaither got extra-base hits from Eddie Pastrana,Chris Torres and Kelley. Torres,who finished 3 for 3 with a trio of doubles,said his bat sparked at the right time. "When you're in a slump you just got to stick with it,"Torres said."It's baseball.It happens,and I just had to go out there and give it my all.I couldn't stay in a slump forever." Starting pitcher Matt Frey kept Freedom's offense on its heels,striking out 10 for the win.The Patriots wouldn't go down without a fight,starting a sixth-inning rally.Frey walked Devin Sheppard with the bases loaded,followed by a Cam Morgan double to clear the bags to draw Freedom within four.However, the calm demeanor from Gaither reliever Alex Milne paid off,and the team played through the jam to seal the win."The one thing about these guys is they haven't given up all year,"Permuy said."They really believe in each other.When you say team,this is probably the closest we've had in years." Gaither's path to the district crown was anything but routine,as the host overcame two deficits to Steinbrenner to win 10-9 in the semis that needed eight innings April 24. The Warriors (17-8) jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the second thanks to five Cowboys errors.Gaither wouldn't panic,answering with a five-run third. Steinbrenner's Cole Gordon belted a three-run homer off Gaither starter Evan Gainey in the fourth to put his team on top by four. The Cowboys chipped away and delivered the fatal blow in the eighth when Mercado delivered a two-out single,stole second and third and scored on a passed ball to complete the comeback. Freedom defeated No.3 Wiregrass Ranch 5-2 in the other semi to capture playoff berth for the first time in program history. "It feels good overall,"said Freedom coach A.J.Leppla."Obviously the outcome (in the finals) isn't what we wanted,but to be here and everything is the first time in school history;we've had a lot of success this year,and I'm very proud of our young men."Canes fall in district finalsThe Bishop McLaughlin baseball team lost the Class 3A-District 8 championship 32 to Tampa Prep April 27. The host Hurricanes (18-9) took a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a Tanner Koch single,but the Terrapins (16-9) tied the score in the third and took the lead with a home run by Tyler Jarrell in the ninth.

The three-year starter at cornerback announced his plans April 23 to sign with the Division II program in the Sunshine State Conference. "What really interested me about the school was their engineering program," Fernandez said."That's what I want to do. Once I saw the football program it just topped everything off." The Panthers will play their first season in 2013.The ability to help create a new program appealed to Fernandez as it was similar to what he experienced when Steinbrenner opened three years ago."I really liked the building,"Fernandez said."There's no backlog of players in front of me at my position,so I'm looking forward to getting out there and helping get things started right away like I did at Steinbrenner."Warriors coach Floyd Graham said Fernandez has been a big part of the defense since coming from Sickles after his freshman year. "He was a team captain the last few years,"Graham said."He's just a tireless worker,and that's what Florida Tech is getting."Lutz Chiefs summer football campMembers of the Steinbrenner football team will lead the Lutz Chiefs summer football camp at the Oscar Cooler Sports Complex,770 W.Lutz-Lake Fern Road in Lutz.The week for ages 7 to 10 is June 18 to 22.For ages 11 to 15 it is June 25 to 29.All days run from 8 a.m.to noon.The cost is $100 and includes a T-shirt along with learning fundamental techniques of the game.

The Warriors were fourth last year at regionals while competing in Class 2A.The squad moved up to 3A and rose to the challenge by scoring 41 points. "You have 30-something teams,so you have to come out and compete strong to finish second,"said Steinbrenner coach Ladd Baldwin."When you come to a big meet like this you want to know you've prepared them the right way." The Warriors set the tone in the day's first race.The 4x800-meter relay team was in sixth place on the final lap,but Lauren Garris made up ground to finish fourth (9 minutes 55.65 seconds),the last advancing spot. "They made a big move to qualify for states,and I think that showed everyone OK we can do this,"Baldwin said."They were seeded seventh and ran 13 seconds faster than the school record." Jessica Brewer placed fourth in the long jump with a new personal record (PR) 16 feet 11.5 inches. "When I was taking my last jump I knew I was fourth or fifth,so I told myself jump a little bit farther,"Brewer said."Pull your heels up more and do it." Alexis Wright qualified in her three events,placing second in the 100 hurdles (14.65) and triple (37-3.75) and claiming the 300 hurdles crown (45.48),her last event of the day. "I wasn't satisfied with how I did this morning,"said Wright,who won regionals in her three events last year."I'm definitely capable of more." Baldwin said Wright's ability to rebound in her final event shows her toughness. "She feels like people expect her to do well,and she has that internal pressure," Baldwin said."She's going in her best events, and we have another week to get her ready." Wright's championship came from Lane 2 after finishing seventh in prelims. "The lane you're in is just a number," Wright said."Everyone is running the same distance.I laid my heart on the line and went for it." Wright won the 100 hurdles state title last year and said the regional performance is fuel. "There's always someone out there better than you,"Wright said."It's either go get them,or you're going to settle.I'm not one to settle.My flame is burning,and I'm ready to go out there and get anyone." The Steinbrenner distance boys also showed off.The 4x800 won by finishing in 8:05.8.Three members of that relay qualified individually,Matt Magee in the 800 (second place,1:57.4) and Tyler and Zach Lima by finishing second (9:39.95) and third (9:40.03),respectively,in the 3,200. "It's our first states,and it's actually our first time in regions,"Tyler said."Zach pushed the pace.Without him I would have slowed down some." Zach,who PRed by 23 seconds,said he wanted to keep up with his twin. "That's how I run in practice,"Zach said. "We both changed our training this year.It was all about pace work and strength.We basically had no light workout days since cross country." The 3A state meet is May 4 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Cowboys sweep hurdles Gaither hurdlers Samson Moore and Paul Barrett won the boys 110and 300-meter hurdles at the Class 3A regional meet April 25 at Leto. Moore,a freshman,set a new school record by finishing in 14.36 seconds."I didn't suspect to get to states,but I thought if I kept up my goals I'd make it,"Moore said."I had a bad start.I was probably last out of the blocks.I have to get better at that."Barrett,a senior,completed the sweep by posting a personal record 37.85 to make consecutive state appearances.Barrett said he will share with Moore what states is like so they both have a chance to medal. "I didn't know what to expect last year," Barrett said."I came out and those guys were fast.I didn't even make the finals.This year I want to make the finals.That's the first hurdle." The Gaither girls advanced Kiana Bryant, who took third in the 100 (12.29). The 3A state meet is May 4 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Akachukwu's eventful dayFreedom junior Sandra Akachukwu left the Class 4A regional track meet at Leto April 25 with more individual championships than anyone. The King transfer claimed the long jump (17 feet 7 inches),her first event of the day, along with titles in the 100-meter (12.41 seconds) and 200 (25.33).She was also second in the high jump (5-4) "It feels really good,"Akachukwu said with a smile."It tells me that I really belong." Akachukwu was doing but smiling the week before at districts when she won the 100,but was runner-up in the other events. Patriots assistant Ryan McGee,who coaches Freedom's sprint and jump athletes,said Akachukwu was disappointed by clearing 5 in the high jump at districts, which affected the rest of her day. "It all started when she won the long jump today,"McGee said."We knew what to expect the rest of the meet." Akachukwu said winning the long jump gave her the confidence needed to claim the trifecta.McGee added making it to states in her events is extremely difficult. "That's a hard four events she does," McGee said."You've got a lot of running in the 100 and 200 plus jumping as hard as you can.That separates her.I can't stress how proud I am of her." Freedom's boys send the 4x100 (fourth place,43.24) and 4x400 (third place, 3:30.14) relay teams after none of their athletes qualified last season. "Our coaches have been pushing us every practice,"said Anthony Hendry,who runs the anchor of the 4x400."There's no messing around,so when we get to the meet it's game time." The 4A state meet is May 5 at Hodges Stadium in Jacksonville at 1 p.m.Barhonovich medals at statesBishop McLaughlin's Evan Barhonovich placed seventh at the Class 1A state meet April 27.The senior threw the discus 136 feet 6 inches.No other area athlete finished in the top eight of their event to earn a medal.Warriors earn regional runner-up honors Steinbrenner senior Alexis Wright won the 300 hurdles and took second in the 100 hurdles and triple jump at regionals.

The Wildcats (14-4) defeated the Lions (16-7) the previous three meetings this season,but only by a combined five runs.The academy completed the sweep with a 3-0 win April 27 to reach the doorstep of the final four for the first time. "Our school doesn't have a history with winning in a lot of sports,"said catcher Rebecca Hannah."We wanted to come out here and prove ourselves." On the mound for the academy was Sydney Boynton (8-2,1.78 ERA).The junior faced the Lions in the first three meetings. She used her overwhelming changeup to freeze Hernando Christian in the district finals but opted for more curveballs, dropballs and screwballs in the playoffs. "I faced them four times,and they kept saying watch the changeup,"Sydney said. "They were waiting for it,so I tried to sneak something past them,not my changeup.I threw it when it was appropriate." The strategy worked.Sydney threw a complete game two-hitter with three walks and nine strikeouts,three on her change. "They have some great hitters,so it's tough every time,"Sydney said."It was tough for us too hitting wise until the fifth." Sydney's sister,Skyler,led off the fifth with a single.The Wildcats loaded the bases after an intentional walk to Lauren Evans and Sydney reaching on an error. Hannah stepped to the plate and hit the first pitch to drive in the winning run. "I was thinking I've got to hit this girl early,"Hannah said."She's a good pitcher. We've struggled with her." Sydney scored in the inning when an illegal pitch was called,and Hannah was driven in on a single by Brenna Walton to go up 30.The academy needed six more outs,but first-year Wildcats coach Jerry English gave them something else to focus on. "I told them we were losing by one run," English said."We can't play any different losing by one run or ahead by three.We can't go back on our heels or we'll fall down." The academy hosts Quincy Monroe at Live Oak Little League Park May 1 at 4 p.m.Bishop McLaughlin falls 5-4The Bishop McLaughlin softball team dropped its Class 3A regional quarterfinals contest to Lakeland Christian 5-4 on April 24. The Hurricanes (13-15) scored two in the first inning,but gave up three in the second to the Vikings (12-13).The Canes tied the score in the third,but fell behind for good when Lakeland tallied two in the fourth.

(Photo by Kyle LoJacono)Wildcats make regional finals Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Lutz-area residents have waited more than 100 years, since before the town was founded in 1909, for an authentic Mexican restaurant to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. This Saturday, the annual May 5th celebration commemorating Mexican heritage and pride comes to downtown Lutz with an all-day celebration at Elsa's Mexican Restaurant and Sports Cantina. Festivities begin at 11 a.m. with discounted "Bad Juan" margaritas, Mexican beer on tap and fabulous home-cooked Tex-Mex dishes. "We'll have all 26 employees working and ready to show customers a fabulous time" said Pete Berberich, who has managed the restaurant since it opened last September. "We're planning controlled chaos' so that everyone will enjoy the day, especially families and kids." Berberich and co-manager, Jeff Kenkel, both have roots in Dayton, Ohio, home of Elsa's four sister stores. Pete's father, Chuck, has been best friends with the company's owner for 65 years. Jeff's dad was head chef at the chain for many years and is the originator of the restaurant's most popular menu items. "I've known Pete his entire life and that was one of the attractions of opening a restaurant here in Lutz," said owner Bill Hemmert, a part-time resident of St. Petersburg Beach who has held season tickets to the Tampa Bay Rays and Lightning since the teams' first seasons here.Before becoming a restaurateur in 1979, Hemmert was a defense attorney. He got into the bar business when he and three attorney friends talked about opening a bar where they could drink liquor and eat good food for free. Hemmert volunteered that he knew a perfect location in the blue-collar neighborhood of East Dayton where he grew up. Not long afterward the men were in business running their new restaurant as well as their law practices. They named their restaurant Elsa's after the original owner, Elsa Bonner, a hardworking woman from the Kentucky coalfields who had owned the bar since 1947. She came to cater to Hispanics who worked at nearby automotive plants with her Tex-Mex dishes. "I tell the story that it took four idiot lawyers to get into this business and I was the only one foolish enough to still be standing eight years later," said Hemmert. Over the next 30 years, Hemmert and his wife, Karen, raised three children and added three more restaurants to their small Dayton chain. Along the way they developed their trademark Bad Juan margaritas, by far the company's most popular mixed drink. "We spent three years perfecting the Bad Juan," said Hemmert, which he explained is a clear, lime-based drink made from tequila, lime juice and triple sec. Eventually he added the Bad Juanita, a strawberry margarita popular with women and young adults. "Our Bad Juans are very smooth for a margarita," said Hemmert. "People like them because they are delicious and also for their strong alcohol content, which is equivalent to the amount of liquor found in a bottle of wine." Customer demand for Bad Juan drinks are so great that Hemmert is working with Republic National Distributors in Tampa to sell liter bottles of Bad Juan margaritas in liquor stores. Since the beginning of the year, Bad Juan margaritas have been sold at Tampa Bay Lightning games and other Forum events. "We're hoping to have our bottled Bad Juan liters stocked in liquor stores in Florida and Ohio by this summer," said Hemmert. Hemmert decided to open his fifth store in Lutz because it is where Pete and Molly Berberich live. "I knew Tampa Bay's growth was to the north and I knew I wanted Pete to manage the business," said Hemmert. "Pete found this great location close to his home and I knew we would be successful here because Pete and Molly know so many people and word of mouth is so important in running a restaurant." Pete and Molly have lived in Lutz off County Line Road for 18 years. The couple owns We're In Stitches, an embroidery business on North Florida Avenue that customizes shirts, hats and other items for businesses, schools and sports groups. Their three children attend area schools (Most Holy Redeemer, Rushe Middle, and Tampa Catholic). Elsa's has an expansive menu of TexMex and American appetizers, sandwiches, entrees and desserts. Its most popular menu item is the Super Burrito, a 10-inch flour tortilla filled with refried beans and choice of ground beef, shredded beef, chicken, chorizo or pork carnitas that is topped with a mild sauce, lettuce, pico de gallo and aged cheddar cheese. The restaurant is open daily at 11 a.m. and closes at 11 p.m., except Sunday when it closes at 10 p.m. It's easy to find, located behind the McDonald's in old downtown Lutz.Cinco de Mayo Celebration this Saturday at Elsa's in Lutz Pete Berberich, left, manager of Elsa's Mexican Restaurant and Sports Cantina, and Bill Hemmert, owner of the Lutz restaurant and four other Elsa's locations in Dayton, Ohio.
