By B.C. Manion bcman i on@cnewspubs.com Runners who enjoy starting their Thanksgiving Day with a Turkey Trot will have a new option this holiday season. Instead of driving to the Turkey Trot in Clearwater or the FishHawk Turkey Trot, area runners will be able to do a 5-kilometer or a one-miler at the first Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. The race will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 21. Brian Brink, the race director, came up with the idea for the Wiregrass Wobble. However, he credits his wife Erica with coming up with the name and dreaming up the prize that winners will receive — an engraved carving board for use at their holiday gatherings later in the day. Besides giving runners a new race, the event is raising money for Feeding America Tampa Bay and the New Tampa YMCA. Brink, who is general manager of Fitniche at The Shops at Wiregrass, said the idea for the event came out of the weekly run he organizes at the mall every Thursday night. There are two groups of runners who run at the mall with one heading out at 6 p.m., and the second at 6:30 p.m., Brink said. Since they always meet on Thursdays, A look at some of the participants of a weekly Thursday night run at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. The Thursday night runners inspired the idea for the Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot, scheduled for the first time this coming Thanksgiving. (Photo by B.C.

It was a housing boom like no other seen before, a bubble that popped so loudly, it almost took the nation’s entire economy with it. One of the states hit worst by the housing crash was Florida, especially Pasco County, which saw unprecedented new home growth right before the market came to a screeching halt. Suddenly communities that once had to figure out how to build homes fast enough were now trying to figure out how to sell the homes they already had. Life switched from community developers making huge profits, to just trying to survive. And it was clear that not everyone was going to make it through — with all eyes on Connerton. “There were a few times when we thought the market was getting better, only to find it didn’t,” said Stewart Gibbons, an executive-turned-consultant with Connerton. The community, which was considered one of Pasco’s crown jewel developments when it was first proposed in the 1990s, was designed to eventually bring 8,000 54 52 52 597 NS E W 75 75 54 581Land O’ Lakes Wesley Chapel Avalon Park West While jo b growth is still not as strong as it should b e, one thing co mm unities like Avalon Park West are struggling with a b it is finding enough qualified construction workers.

(Photo by Michael Hinman) The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Ongoing construction on the Veterans Expressway and Suncoast Parkway could mean some delays and detours in the coming weeks. The Florida Department of Transportation plans to close the State Road 54 northbound off-ramp of the Suncoast Parkway from 9 p.m. Sept. 25 to 6 a.m. Sept. 26 for the installation of a temporary asphalt and barrier wall. The southbound off-ramp of County Line Road will be closed from 9 p.m. Sept. 26 to 6 a.m. Sept. 27 for the same reason. This is all part of the continued conversion project that will make the entire Suncoast Parkway all-electronic tolling between Van Dyke Road and U.S. 98. The total project is costing $24.2 million. It includes gantry foundation installation, toll plaza equipment buildings, asphalt milling and resurfacing, roadway reconstruction and widening, lighting, drainage, utilities and final landscape work. The 42-mile project is expected to be completed by June 2015. Throughout the rest of the Veterans Expressway, drivers should prepare for general lane closures nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. FDOT asks that motorists drive with caution through work zones, and adhere to posted detour signs and speed limits. Speeding fines are doubled in construction zones when workers are present.

Fibromyalgia is a real disease with real pain. Clinical studies have shown the majority of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event (like a car accident, work injury or a fall), sometimes months or years later. Mark Pelligrino, MS (author of The Fibromyalgia Survivor), reported that after studying over 2,000 fibromyalgia patients files, he found two-thirds of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event.

She was diagnosed with an autoimmune form of alopecia, where Emily’s immune system attacks hair follicles, preventing new hair from growing. As a young girl, Emily covered her head with hats or bandanas. But since seventh grade, the now 17-year-old Land O’ Lakes High School senior has worn wigs, “When I got my first wig, I didn’t really want to wear it,” Raymond said. “I was just afraid to, I guess.” Good wigs, especially those made from natural human hair, are expensive, ranging in price from $700 to $2,000, she said. That’s why nonprofit groups like Locks of Love are so needed. “I am definitely grateful,” said Raymond, who plans to attend Pasco-Hernando Community College next year to begin studying to become a dental hygienist. “It’s wonderful that people want to grow their hair out and donate it to for others to wear.” That’s what Audrey Pease, a Mary Kay cosmetics sales consultant, decided to do for Raymond. Pease met her when Raymond was just 12. Her son and Raymond’s brother attended Boy Scout meetings together, and Raymond would tag along. “I didn’t really understand what was going on with her,” Pease said. “But when I learned what was wrong, and what it costs to buy wigs, I knew I had to help.” Pease tried a fundraiser through Mary Kay, raising $100 for a wig. But as an encore, Pease decided to add something to this year’s fundraiser — she would actually donate some of her hair. “I’d been growing it for three years, and I didn’t want to get it cut until it was long enough to help Emily,” Pease said.Locks of Love, which started in 1997, requires hair donations to be at least 10 inches long. It has to be bundled in a ponytail or braid, and cannot be bleached. Pease had 12 inches of hair ready to go, and it took just seconds for stylist Lucy Rosado to cut it away.“I love my new haircut,” Pease said afterward. “My hair had been getting in my face a lot, and made it hard for me to turn my head while I was driving. It’s shorter now than what it was when I first started to grow it out, so it will take some getting used to.” Pease’s hair will not necessarily go to Raymond. However, such donations can save Locks of Love money from acquiring hair from other sources, thus bringing their overall costs down. The nonprofit does sell hair it doesn’t or can’t use, a controversial practice it says is necessary to help offset manufacturing costs. That includes shorter and gray hair. While Raymond won’t benefit directly from Pease’s hair donation, she will benefit from Pease’s latest fundraiser. Through Nov. 15, Pease is donating 40 percent of her Mary Kay sales to help Raymond get a new wig. “That’s pretty much everything I make from the sale,” Pease said. “But it’s absolutely worth it.” Raymond has two wigs custom-made for her right now, but she really only uses one. At one point she had four, but she donated two of hers to a family friend who also was losing her hair. “I joke around with my friends that I could just get a bunch of different-colored wigs, and wear a different wig each and every day,” Raymond said. “I want to do it.” For more information on Audrey Pease’s fundraising benefit for Emily Raymond, visit tinyurl.com/RaymondLocks. Hair-raising fundraising event planned for Land O’ Lakes teen It took Audrey Pease three years to grow her hair this long, and only seconds for stylist Lucy Rosado of Susan’s Mane Tamer in Lutz to cut it off.

By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com “I’d like you to imagine the most important person in your life,” Cara Filler told the crowd in Gaither High School’s auditorium. “With your eyes closed, imagine what your life would be without them.” That’s how Filler began her talk during a motivational speaking appearance in front of Gaither’s senior class. The most important person in Filler’s life was her twin sister, Mairin Johnston. But she died the day after they shared their 18th birthday, not long after they graduated from high school. It was a car accident just three miles away from the mall where both had just been hired to work at a Disney store. Mairin left the mall with her boyfriend driving, allegedly hitting speeds of 110 mph in a 35-mph zone. He lost control of the car and crashed. The boyfriend sustained some minor injuries. He paid a $150 speeding ticket and spent 15 days in jail. Mairin lost her life. This was Filler’s best friend. The person who was going to be her maid of honor. The one who would be hanging out with her when they were in their 80s. Now Filler shares her story through the “Drive to Save Lives” tour, talking about the importance of making smart choices to stay safe. She made similar stops at Wharton and Steinbrenner high schools, too, which were among the 10 schools in Florida she visited to spread her message. Students Against Destructive Decisions, better known as SADD, and the Florida Department of Transportation sponsored Filler’s appearances. “FDOT, for the first time, has put teen safe driving as part of their strategic plan,” said Danielle Branciforte, SADD’s state coordinator. These kinds of presentations remind students “that there are consequences for every action,” Branciforte said. At times during Filler’s hour-long talk, one could hear a pin drop in the auditorium. At other times, the place rocked with laughter. In the end, students gave Filler a standing ovation. Many said they appreciated her candor, her humor and her practical advice. Filler, who grew up in Vancouver, B.C., now lives north of Portland, Ore. She travels around the country, coaxing audience members to keep themselves safe and avoid becoming statistics. She gives about 150 talks a year and has been doing that for 18 years. “I can tell you the second my sister died,” said Filler, who was driving behind her sister and witnessed the crash. She could only watch as emergency workers at the scene were unable to save her. “She died because she made a bad choice.” Filler said she continues to give the talks because she wants her sister’s death to have meaning. “I’m sick and tired of car crashes being the No. 1 killer of youth,” Filler said. “I watched them rip the car apart to try to get my sister out. There was nothing they could do for her.” While recounting her sister’s death was dramatic and poignant, Filler’s talk also painted a portrait of the joys and hassles of life as a twin. She used self-deprecating humor to build connections with the audience, believing that if she can make the kids laugh, she can also make them listen. Gaither principal Marie Whelan told students that she is always concerned about their safety, and she encouraged them to look out for themselves and their friends. She wants to see them walk across the stage on graduation day next June.“I want you to be able to be that maid of honor or best man in your best friends’ weddings,” Whelan said. “I want you to be there for them, when their children are born and all of those special moments in life.” Sharon Hall, program manager for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, knows too well the depth of Filler’s pain. State troopers knocked at Hall’s door at 11 one night five years ago to tell her that her 26-year-old son, Louis B. Hall, was killed in a wreck on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway. He was a passenger. “The driver was speeding, and impaired, and lost control,” Hall said. Some members of Gaither’s SADD chapter said they think Filler’s comments will hit home with their peers. “I think she gave great tips on how to prevent accidents,” said Autumn Riedy, 17. “Every day teenagers go to parties and you can prevent stuff (from) happening.”Brad Smith, 17, said he thinks Filler’s talk “really opened the eyes of a lot of students who think, ‘It’s not going to happen to me.’“We’re all going to college next year. This is a good message to keep in the back of your heads, to make good decisions. Sometimes just saying, ‘No,’ is all you have to say,” Smith said. It’s also important to intervene, to help friends avoid foolish actions, Smith said. “If you don’t say something and something happens, you’re going to regret it,” he said. Distracted driving is a big issue, said Brittany French, 17. “My dad is always telling me not to text and drive,” she said. “You’re looking down. You’re not really paying attention.” French connected when Filler asked the crowd to imagine the person closest to them. “Personally, mine would be my little sister,” French said. “She’s my everything. I couldn’t imagine my life without her.”813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 4 Service TimesSunday Bible Class 10 AM Sunday Worship 11 AM Sunday Evening 6:30 PM Wednesday 7 PM Were close by, and easy to find. 17841 Hunting Bow Circle € Lutz FL 33558 813-920-9393 Youre Invited tampabaybaptist.com Open House Sunday October 20, 11am Food for all and games for children following service 813-949-7424 CALLFORANAPPOINTMENT21533 VILLAGELAKESSHPGCTR.

Motivational speaker Cara Filler offers these four approaches:  Don’t get in the car — There are always other options, Filler said.  If you’re already in a car, and it’s dangerous, get out of the car — “Speak up for yourself,” Filler said. “My sister didn’t. That’s why she’s dead.”  Lie if you have to — “Tell the driver you have to pee,” Filler said. Or tell the driver “you think you’re going to puke.”  Call your parents — Not popular, Filler said, but it’s a move that can save lives. Teenagers not driving can also volunteer to be the “designated texter,” to make sure the driver doesn’t do that. And if all else fails? “Hide the car keys,” Filler said.Make a choice to stay alive, speaker says

Man i on b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m Pasco Regional Medical Center is inviting the public to take a stroll down memory lane, reminiscing about a history in Dade City that stretches back four decades. The hospital is having its 40th anniversary celebration from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 1, at the facility’s 13100 Fort King Road location. The event will feature hospital tours, a bit of nostalgia and hors d’oeuvres. Visitors will be able to hear about some of the many advances the hospital has made since it opened on Oct. 1, 1973, as Community General Hospital. On that first day, the hospital had 14 patients, one surgery, 64 beds, 28 physicians, a five-bed intensive care unit, two operating rooms and a nursery that was large enough to accommodate eight babies. It was Dade City’s second hospital. Over the years, the hospital has changed ownership and names several times. Recently, the hospital announced its affiliation with Bayfront Health network and soon will change its name to Bayfront Health Dade City. The Bayfront Health network consists of seven hospitals, stretching 150 miles along the Interstate 75 corridor from Brooksville to Punta Gorda.To put things in perspective, when Pasco Regional Medical Center opened its doors, a postage stamp cost 8 cents, the average household earned $10,512 a year, and people, on average, lived to slightly more than 71 years old.In the four decades since the hospital opened its doors, it has gone through enormous change, too. It now is one of Pasco County’s biggest economic generators, with an annual payroll of $23 million. The nationally accredited hospital is a 120-bed acute care facility providing inpatient, outpatient and emergency care.The hospital serves as a Designated Primary Stroke Center, and specializes in advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques including single-incision laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery and incision-less procedures. The hospital is now under new ownership following a $7.6 billion buyout of its parent company. Health Management Associates Inc., the Largo-based company that owns Pasco Regional and 22 other hospitals in Florida, was sold to Community Health Systems Inc., in a deal announced July 30. The sale is not expected to affect the hospital’s name change.For more information about the hospital, visit PascoRegionalMC.com. Pasco Regional Medical Center, which is changing its name to Bayfront Health Dade City, has a long history in the East Pasco County area. By the numbers 20,750: Emergency room visits 4,305: Surgeries195: Physicians $23 million: Annual payroll 120: Licensed beds Highlights through the years1973: Hospital has a ribbon cutting on Sept. 30, drawing a crowd of more than 2,000.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT  Everyone enjoyed such a nice evening event last month when the Bluegrass band played here, that we decided to add more fun, introducing our newest addition to the Caf and Market, Hersheys Ice Cream,Ž Tiffany smiled, as she added, we only display 12 flavors, but can serve the entire 120 flavors offered from Hersheys.Ž Tiffany said she was pleasantly surprised to see that the addition of Ice Cream has not affected the Gelato sales. Gelato and Ice Cream are uniquely different in taste, texture and content. Both are going to be featured on our new evening Menu, along with Specialty Coffees, Frappe Drinks and Desserts,Ž Tiffany added. Tiffany went on to explain, we are developing three distinct product offering periods daily, and soon will be offering special menus for each group.Ž The Morning menu will offer our fabulous KAHWA coffee selections along with fresh baked bagels and pastries and a variety of egg sandwich styles. The Luncheon menu will offer our unique Multi-Grain Panini and Spinach Wrap sandwiches. Chris offers daily specials in addition to the everyday menu variety.

Connerton's developer, Hayman Woods, a Dallasbased development company, promised to bring this community back to life after the housing bust, and they are keeping their promise. Since their grand reopening in May of this year, almost 40 homes are under contract with four outstanding builders, Taylor Morrison, Ryland, M/I Homes and Homes by WestBay. These builders offer innovative floor plans from 1,481 to over 6,300 sq. ft. with prices from the low $100s to over $700,000. The residents are excited to see all of the activity. Connerton was given the New Town designation by the State of Florida and Pasco County. To be designated as a New Town,Ž a community must include certain uses. In addition to residential home building, a New Town offers education, recreation, retail and commercial development. When they say, timing is everything,Ž the phrase certainly applied to the opening of Connerton during the real estate boom, and the slowdown during the bust. However, Connerton is now well-positioned for the economic recovery because its amenities, parks, trails and an $8 million dollar clubhouse are already in place. The 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, super pool with a unique aquatic playground and childrens wading pool. A caf, meeting rooms for resident and community use, plus tennis and basketball courts are all available as part of the Connerton lifestyle. The annual Labor Day ice cream social was recently coordinated by Amy Gallogly, the onsite activities director, and her staff. She keeps residents busy with holiday parties, nature walks, scavenger hunts, wine tasting events, and is always willing to listen to other suggestions. In addition to the clubhouse, an extensive trail and boardwalk system runs throughout the community, and will eventually connect all of the villages. These trails and walkways help to promote a more sociable, pedestrian culture. Connerton Elementary School opened in 2010, providing students with updated technology, such as rolling laptops filled with new MacBooks and interactiv whiteboards for classroom use. Connerton Elementary is an "A" rated school, along with Pineview Middle and Land O' Lakes High School, which Connerton residents attend. The staff leadership is provided by Principal Aimee Boltze and Assistant Principal Claudia Steinacker. Together they uphold the schools mission to provide a nurturing environment for both students and teachers. The school also provides learning opportunities for 55 intellectually disabled students in five self-contained classrooms. These students are also integrated into the traditional classroom environment, helping to provide disability awareness for all grade levels. If you have an opportunity to visit the school, you will be welcomed by a friendly staff who will be happy to provide you with a tour of this state-of the-art education center. The New TownŽ of Connerton is back on its feet with a wonderful lifestyle to offer its residents. So, if you havent been there lately, stop by, visit the clubhouse, walk the trails, and be sure to visit the new models. It could be your new home!

They announced that plan about a week before Thanksgiving, Brink said. Much to his surprise, roughly 150 people showed up. Brink figured if that many people turned out with just a week’s notice, the event could draw substantially more runners with more lead time. Thus began the planning for this year’s event, which Brink believes will attract at least 1,000 runners. “We have Seven Oaks and Meadow Pointe and all of these giant neighborhoods within a few miles of here that are (homes to) young families,” Brink said.He expects runners to come from such communities as Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Zephyrhills, Dade City, Land O’ Lakes and Lutz.Lutz resident Jonathan Bosque, 18, said he plans to be there. The Freedom High student has run at the Turkey Trot in Clearwater for the past three years. “I just love running,” Bosque said. “This is a great community place for running.”Brink said he expects the Wiregrass Wobble to become a premier event for the area because the other Turkey Trots are so far away.“The Clearwater one is the biggest one. They have about 15,000 people doing four different races,” Brink said. “To get down there, to get parking, to get registered, everything like that, it’s going to take over an hour to do all that. “There’s so many people in the North Tampa area that have no desire to wake up that early on Thanksgiving morning. So, really the area needed something like this. I think we’re going to have a huge turnout,” Brink said.He also noted that once the county gets a planned park built on adjacent land in Wiregrass Ranch, organizers can add a 10k run.The route of the Wiregrass Wobble’s 5k will go around the mall and Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, ending to the top of the mall’s parking garage. “Doing 3.1 miles takes some maneuvering,” Brink said, noting the idea is to keep the race off busy roads. “Luckily we have a really big parking garage over there — that will give us some distance.” The race director thinks the event will be a popular choice for families who want to take a walk or run before settling down later to their Thanksgiving meals. He also thinks it will be a nice option for people who are having family in for the holiday. “People are traveling on Thanksgiving to be with family. They’re looking for something to do together,” Brink said. Runners who register early enough will receive a T-shirt that’s designed to keep them dry and cool while they race. The 5k will also be a chip-timed event, Brink said. The chip ensures that racers are timed from the start line to the finish. Registration is $25 for the 5k and $20 for the one-miler. Runners who sign up in person at any Fitniche location or the New Tampa YMCA can get a $5 discount if they donate five nonperishable goods for the food bank, Brink said. Registrations are also being accepted online at signmeup.com. Runners will also be able to register on race day.WOBBLE, from page 1 homes just off U.S. 41 just south of State Road 52. By the time of the crash, however, just 300 homes had been built, and there was tremendous concern by some there wouldn’t be any more. Especially when Terrabrook, Connerton’s original developer, pulled out in 2009. “There was a lot of information out there, frankly some information that was incorrect and slanted, and naturally, when you’re a large community, people are going to focus on you,” Gibbons said. “We certainly saw the effects of that to some degree.”However, Connerton may be emerging from dark times. The construction industry, dormant for years, has now returned. And since relaunching under a new owner last May — CoastOak Group and Hayman Woods LLC — Connerton has sold some 40 homes, and is poised to do even more before the year is out.And Connerton is not alone. Some of Pasco’s other large communities, which suffered during the downturn, are starting to come back. And the timing couldn’t be better to see more people calling this part of the county home.Bright future?“We love the Tampa market,” said Barbara Kininmonth, sales and marketing director for Crown Community Development, which owns the WaterGrass development off Curley Road. “We love it so much that we sold out all our single-family lots at WaterGrass.”The community, designed for just under 1,200 homes, has more than 600 in the books already. With the first phase complete, Crown now has plans to start 356 additional homes using five builders — Standard Pacific Homes, Ryland Homes, Homes by WestBay, Bakerfield Luxury Homes and Arthur Rutenberg Homes. Sales picked up briskly once the housing market returned because WaterGrass spent the money needed to maintain common areas, and to keep it attractive for any potential buyers who wandered in. “We develop communities across the country, and our standards never decreased,” Kininmonth said. “The level of upkeep for the community never changed. We worked to make sure lots were ready for builders, and we continued on plans for parks and other amenities, all as they were originally planned” during the boom. The spring quarter has made many builders optimistic. Metrostudy, a company that tracks housing data across the country, said the Tampa Bay area experienced 1,838 housing starts during that time period, up nearly 48 percent from a year ago. However, actual closings are down a bit compared to the same time in 2012, off by just less than 6 percent. That may be because of the lukewarm job growth in the area. “We’re very bullish on the whole Tampa market,” said David Caillouette, the owner’s representative for LakeShore Ranch off U.S. 41, not far from Connerton. “I would love to see job growth come back because housing is dependent on job growth.” Last spring, 33,300 new jobs were reported in the Tampa Bay region, according to the same Metrostudy report, up nearly 3 percent. However, unemployment rates are still fluctuating between 6.9 percent and 7.2 percent. Yet, it’s a far cry from more than 9 percent unemployment, which is where Florida was a year ago.Help wantedSome of the jobs coming back are construction. In fact, the only reason why the construction industry hasn’t grown faster is because there aren’t enough skilled people in the area to fill the jobs. And that could slow housing growth in Pasco. “We lost an awful lot of the labor force” after the crash, said Connerton’s Gibbons, who also speaks on behalf of the Tampa Bay Builders Association. “They just wanted jobs, so many people moved on to other geographic areas like Texas, and others left the industry altogether, and probably won’t be coming back.” Also possibly hurting some communities is the Pasco County Commission’s recent failure to pass a gas tax hike. Such money could’ve been used to maintain worn roads, like those found in communities trying to get back on their feet. Connerton, for example, built its roads several years ago, but depends on the county to maintain them. “If you don’t maintain potholes, they only get bigger and more expensive to fix,” Gibbons said. “The tax would’ve cost people an additional $2 or $3 a month, which seemed like a fairly modest number. The county has such a strong emphasis on economic development, but it’s hard to do if the roads are bad.” Since the housing crash of 2008, there have been several starts and stops in the market that only teased a recovery. That has resulted in a cautious approach by builders, even as Pasco’s demand for homes continue to grow. “We don’t want a repeat of a few years ago where everyone built far more homes than people were actually able to buy,” LakeShore Ranch’s Caillouette. “People wanted to move to the suburbs before the economy went south, and Pasco was the next spot they were all going to. We expect we’ll be picking up right where we left off.” Except now at a much different — and slower — pace.HOMES, from page 1 By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com When the last book in J.K. Rowling’s bestselling series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows,” was released in 2007, Jason De La Torre was in line ready for his copy.But once he finished the book, the Wesley Chapel resident realized a troubling fact: There was now a magical void in the world of literature. So using his own money, De La Torre created “Star Mage,” an enchanting story told in comic book form that takes a young wizard out into space. He wrote the story, hired an artist to ink it. And then shopped it around to all the major comic book publishers. And De La Torre’s work has paid off. Last week he signed a deal with IDW Publishing in San Diego that will put his story on the shelves of bookstores all over the country next April.“I grew up reading comics, and I’ve always had a love for them,” De La Torre said. “At one point, in 2011, I just started wondering what goes into being a comic book writer. I knew I couldn’t draw worth a lick, but I knew I could come up with an interesting story.”“Star Mage” centers around Darien Connors, a 14-year-old boy who discovers he has magical abilities. That discovery, however, pulls him into a war that involves not only his family, but the entire galaxy as well.“You don’t want to be a cheap rip-off of Harry Potter,” De La Torre said. “You definitely have to be sure the ideas you’re going with are original. That is what I try to do, come up with the most original story I could, but keeping some of the familiarity with what I love and what is successful out there, too.”Darien’s skills do have a much different explanation. It is part of a practice known as Kishpu, and he’s not the only one that can do it. He quickly teams up with three young friends — Anthaar, Tirwa and Unura — and soon find themselves in battle with a hated enemy, Orasmas Xul Sarrum. “Star Mage” has all the elements young comic book readers are looking for, while developing a story that will give them something completely new, De La Torre said. De La Torre was born and raised in Tampa, and moved to Wesley Chapel with his wife Rita in 2007. During the day he’s a tech guy with a healthcare company. His evenings, however, are spent writing the first six issues of “Star Mage,” which IDW will release as a limited series in the spring. If all goes well, and sales are strong, it could lead to a regular monthly series for “Star Mage” by the end of next year. Each comic issue takes about 90 days to create from start to finish, with most of that time devoted to the art. Ray Dillon inked the first issue, previously making a name for himself with projects based on Peter Pan and the HBO series “Game of Thrones.” Franco Cespedes takes over after that, continuing a world where science-fiction and magical fantasy collide.IDW is a newer company, founded in 1999, but it already is the nation’s sixth-largest publisher for many popular franchises like “My Little Pony,” “True Blood,” “Star Trek” and “Transformers.” IDW has even had some of its comics optioned for films by studios like Paramount Pictures and Dimension Films. With comic book adaptations making billions of dollars at the box office, De La Torre said he can’t help but dream of seeing “Star Mage” on the silver screen.“If there was a movie, I definitely would want them to respect the original material,” De La Torre said. “But I understand that comics and the actual movie business are two different things, they have to appeal to a much broader audience. That is a part of life.”And that life could change for De La Torre pretty quickly if “Star Mage” becomes a success. It could mean full-time devotion to writing, and possibly even adapting some of his other independently published novels to the comic form as well. “I can guarantee you, I will be taking pictures the minute my comic book shows up on the shelf,” De La Torre said. “I have a lot of ideas I’m ready to work on, and I’ll always be focused on things that I would enjoy, and maybe others will enjoy as well.” For more information on Jason De La Torre’s upcoming comic book series, visit StarMageComic.com.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 14 Comics publisher finds magic in Pasco writer Jason De La Torre

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 16 The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Pasco Sheriff’s Office has partnered with Logo Outfitters to create and sell a variety of T-shirts to raise money for the department’s SWAT team. The Special Weapons and Tactics tam will attend the international SWAT Roundup competition in Orlando in November, and proceeds from the T-shirt sales will help fund the trip and training ahead of it. Excess proceeds will be used for additional training and equipment needs.The sheriff’s office estimates that $8,000 is needed to fund the unified SWAT team, including a $900 fee to register five of the eight-member team, as well as costs for the hotel, per diem and team uniforms.This would be Pasco’s first appearance at the competition since 2008. The current SWAT team was created in 2011 with deputies from the sheriff’s office as well as officers from the New Port Richey Police Department. It consists of 55 members who respond to high-risk situations in the county. They also assist other departments that don’t have SWAT teams like in Zephyrhills, Dade City and Port Richey. The Orlando competition is the premier SWAT competition, last year featuring 51 teams from Brazil, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, Switzerland, Jamaica and more. The weeklong event consists of training offered in morning sessions followed by an evening or afternoon competitive event. Those events include hostage rescue, team obstacle and firing course, tower scramble, and an officer rescue. The T-shirts, featuring the design work of Cpl. Keith Krapfl, cost $18 each, and are available at www.logooutfitters.net/pascoswat. Donations outside the T-shirt sale can be made by sending a check or money order to Pasco Sheriff’s Charities, P.O. Box 1746, Land O’ Lakes, FL 34639.

Manion b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m As the nation grapples with a physician shortage, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point is gearing up to offer the first internal medicine residency program in Pasco County. The hospital has received approval from the American Osteopathic Association for the program that is scheduled to begin with six residents in July 2014. This program is the hospital’s first step in developing graduate medical education residency programs. It also intends to add Allopathic Graduate Medical Education Programs in general surgery and internal medicine in 2015. The hospital is honored to extend an opportunity to participate in the hospital’s post-graduate medical education program, Shayne George, the hospital’s chief executive officer, said in a news release. “Our program will be dedicated to providing the highest quality graduate medical education for those who come to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point from the nation’s medical schools,” he said. The program will help address a growing need for doctors, according to the 2012 Physician Workforce Annual Report issued by the Florida Department of Health. “Florida has added undergraduate medical education capacity by opening new medical schools, but lags in creating corresponding graduate medical education opportunities,” the report states. “Preventing the annual export of qualified GME (residency) candidates to other states is the first step toward shaping the physician workforce of the future,” the report adds. Statistics contained in the report reveal that nearly 12 percent of Pasco’s active doctors plan to retire within the next five years, and nearly 4 percent plan to relocate. Next door, in Hillsborough County, 10 percent of doctors plan to retire within five years and 3 percent plan to relocate. Those figures compound the problems of an expected increase in health care demands, as more people are insured to meet requirements of the nation’s changing health care laws, and as the state’s population ages. Planning for the residency program began more than a year ago, said Kurt Conover, spokesman for Regional Medical Center Bayonet, a 290-bed acute care hospital at 14000 Fivay Road in Hudson. It will take internal medicine residents three years to complete the residency program.Students from Osteopathic Medical Schools from around the country will be eligible to apply, Conover said. The information will also be posted on the hospital’s website.“Florida is a popular state for training,” he said, adding that the hospital anticipated filling six positions beginning next July. Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point has a nationally acclaimed heart institute, more than 350 physicians, 900 employees and 500 volunteers on its integrated health care delivery team.

Manion bc m an i on@cnewspubs.co m It doesn’t take long to see that something unusual is going on at this 5-acre spread in Dade City. The topiaries at the front of the property are a dead giveaway that creativity has found a home here. There’s a horse with a mane made of vines. Three mushrooms squat beneath giant oaks. A dolphin leaps in mid-flight. And a baby elephant, complete with a water-hose trunk, serves as a giant planter. These are just a few tangible examples of Cindy Seifert’s imagination at work. Walk out behind the artist’s home and you’ll find a butterfly garden with plenty of winged creatures hanging out. She’ll show you where the herbs used to be, before the butterflies gobbled them up. And, she’ll guide you to a bush, where caterpillars are munching away — preparing for the time when they’ll become cocoons and later emerge as winged beauties. Glance to the rear of her yard and you’ll see a garden shed that looks like an old-fashioned wood-plank building. Ah, but appearances are deceiving — Seifert’s shed is made of plywood, painted to look like planks. Step inside her office and you’ll find more examples of Seifert’s works of whimsy. There’s a carousel figure and some caricature sculptures. And, poke your head into the basement and you’ll find a classroom, where Seifert has begun offering classes for women and children. “What they learn to do is think like artists. They learn to identify shapes,” she said. Her students learn to recognize how ob-Seifert cultivates gardens, artistic talent Cindy Seifert poses with her topiary horse, one of many pieces she plans to have at her home in Dade City.

Her classes are $20 an hour. It typically takes four one-hour classes to learn how to design a butterfly garden, said Seifert, who is actually self-taught. “I’ve been creating art ever since I was a very small child,” said the woman who grew up in Ohio. “My first paying job, I was in thirdgrade. My girlfriend’s father commissioned me to paint a picture for their dairy farm, a cow’s picture. After that, the dairy farmers hired me to paint pictures. “I was able to make a sizable side income.” She later worked as a commercial artist. Now, she creates sculptures, murals, portraits and other works. She does much of her business online. Seifert became interested in creating topiaries after making carousel figures about 15 years ago. “There was an art show at the Northdale Library, the original location down in Tampa, and I brought one of my carousel figures in,” she said. “The response was overwhelming.” As a result of that show, Seifert was commissioned to build some carousel figures for the children’s area at the library. “The topiaries are actually built off the blueprints I created to build the carousel figures,” Seifert said, adding she doesn’t use pressed molds or prefabricate her works. “Everything is handcrafted. I design everything, blueprint everything.” Seifert decided to start offering lessons so she could share her knowledge and her love for art and gardening. She calls her classes “Lessons from Cindy Seifert Art Gardens.” At the moment, she has just five students, but she believes she’s been called to create the program. “I think that God puts us here for a reason — to share our knowledge, and I think that it is a privilege,” Seifert said. “God has given me stewardship of all of these things here in my life, to be able to not just cultivate a garden, but to cultivate minds.” For more information about Cindy Seifert, her art and her classes, visit www.CindySeifertArt.com, or call (352) 5883832.

The team at Wesley Chapel High School had a couple of players from the golf team graduate last year, and even lost some talent to other sports this season. Because of that, Coach Mike Rogers was expecting his team to learn from this year and build up experience for the future. Instead, his golfers earned a 6-4 record in September and have already eclipsed last year’s win total of four victories. “It’s been quite refreshing to see how we’ve come through,” Rogers said. “To beat some of the teams we’ve beaten, I’ve been pretty impressed.” Wesley Chapel opened the season with a victory over Wiregrass Ranch, a team that beat them in 2012. Rogers said they even had respectable showings in losses to perennial powerhouses Plant and Jesuit. Having a lot of young players to go along with a few sophomores and upperclassmen might be a frustrating challenge for some coaches, but Rogers enjoys it. Now in his third year coaching boys golf, he sees a team with a lot of talent and athleticism, and he appreciates the individual attitudes and personalities on it. And those players are responding with good play on the courses — especially some of the freshmen. In fact, Rogers said his top athlete, Tyler Rover, is one of his many players who are new to the high school sport experience. “He’s my No. 1 golfer at this moment,” Rogers said of the freshman. “He’s just been outstanding for his first year in high school golf.” While Rover is new to the high school format (he’s never played golf as a team competition before), he’s no stranger to the sport itself: He’s been playing in amateur golf tournaments since he was 9. And his enthusiasm runs in the family. His father, Randy, is a PGA Club Pro at the Avila Golf & Country Club in Tampa. He also volunteers with his son’s golf team and offers tips and advice to both the newer and experienced golfers. With his father and a new coach guiding him in high school, Tyler has learned to appreciate having a team component to an individual sport. “I think it’s definitely a little relieving since you have a few teammates behind you to pick you up if you’re down,” he said. “You go up and play the best you can for each shot, and if your friends play well, it’s even better.” Tyler explained that golf can be mentally and physically draining — that’s what he enjoys about the sport — so it’s a positive experience to participate with other students and have a coach help him. Even though the team is still working its way through the season (with individual competitions at the district, regional and state levels to follow), Tyler said he’s already seen benefits from working with Rogers. “Coach Rogers has definitely given us lots of opportunities,” he said. “I think it’s good to get some different knowledge about my game.” For his part, Rogers believes that his team’s success lies mostly with the ones who are making the tough shots. “They’ve put a lot of work and time and effort into it,” Rogers said. “I don’t think it’s necessarily anything I’ve done. I think it’s what they’ve put into it, and some good oldfashioned talent as well.” Whoever deserves the credit for the team’s success, both the players and coaches know that the team’s prospects look even better down the road, as freshmen turn into experienced upperclassmen. Rogers is excited to see the team grow together, and Rover knows they have a bright future as well. “That’s what we’ve been talking about all year,” he said. “If we get our new players to keep improving and learning new things, we’ll definitely be good for the next three years.” The Wesley Chapel High School golf team has already surpassed last year’s victory total with a 6-4 record in September. That’s despite having a team made up primarily of freshman. Helping in that winning effort are, from left, Aaron Hoyte, Zack Marquadt, Zack Le mmens, Tyler Rover, Alex Nay, David Lee and Ben Wolfman.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike MatthewSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsWhen your child is sick, you don't want to wade through automated prompts, voice mail menus or negotiate with an answering service. You want a live person to help answer your concerns and a physician's office, who knows you by name, not medical record number. Being mothers themselves, the staff at Dr. Nina's Pediatrics places great emphasis on answering family concerns. These physicians founded their practice around the premise of patient-centered care and accessibility. Patients are always able to reach the staff quickly and easily during office hours and they strive to personally answer phone calls after hours. Dr. Yanina Abaunza-Fiallos has been practicing in the Tampa area for 17 years, and opened her own practice in Lutz in November 2003. Dr. Luisa Gomez McElroy has been practicing in the Tampa area for 15 years, joining Dr. Nina in May 2012. Both doctors are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. "We're a small practice," says Dr. Nina. "There are only two doctors. This allows us to get to know our patients well." "We love our patients and their families," says Dr. Luisa. "We don't just provide a diagnosis and move on. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa always take the time to answer questions and educate their patients and their parents. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa pay close attention to each child's development and provide parents with tools to recognize development issues early on. Topics such as nutrition and growth are discussed during wellness visits to identify any issues or concerns before they become a problem. They give parents ample opportunity to ask questions to optimize the child's path to wellness. "We follow recommended check-up schedules and place a strong emphasis on prevention and vaccinations, says Dr. Luisa." We firmly believe vaccinations are a part of keeping our children healthy. Our recommendations are based on the American Academy of Pediatric guidelines. Both doctors have many patients in their practice that they cared for from the day they were born, with many continuing to see them into their 20s. As their former patients become parents themselves, they are returning to bring their own children. Doctors and nurses also trust their children's care to Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa which is very heartwarming for them and their staff. "We're not just for babies," says Dr. Nina. "We also provide vaccinations for college, and perform high school and college physical examinations. We deliver 24-hour emergency service and can normally accommodate same-day appointments." Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa are affiliated with three area hospitals: Florida Hospital Tampa, St. Joseph's Women's Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital North, where they are available to provide newborn care. Free prenatal consultations are also offered so that parents can get to know their baby's doctor prior to delivery. As a student, Dr. Nina was initially interested in teaching children with special needs. Because of this early exposure to children with medical disabilities, she changed career paths to medicine in order to further impact their outcome. Pediatrics was definitely the right path for Dr. Nina and it is a passion that is ignited every time she comes to work. Dr. Luisa decided on a career in pediatrics during medical school. She developed a passion for caring for children. She feels pediatrics has one of the greatest impacts on patients' lives, as she can educate and teach prevention starting in early life. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa are currently accepting new patients at Dr. Nina's Pediatrics, and welcome the opportunity to be a part of your child's life.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 21 SPORTS The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report A retired professional football player who makes his home in Lutz is receiving national attention this past week after some 300 teenagers allegedly trashed his vacation home in New York. Brian Holloway, an offensive lineman for the New England Patriots and later the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1980s, learned about the destruction happening at his home in Stephentown, N.Y., as it was happening through Twitter. Now he is working to track down all the teenagers that damaged his home, and is working to get their help in cleaning up. Holloway’s launched a website to accomplish that. There he says that while broken things can be fixed and stolen things can be returned, the 300 or so people who attended this party are “in peril.” “I know one thing, if my child was involved, I would want to know everything now,” Holloway said on his website. “We are old school disciplinarians, we do not sit back, we take action. We step in and take charge. It’s so easy for kids to get off track if we let them.” Holloway bought the house soon after joining the NFL, but now spends most of his time in Florida because of his football injuries. He would host community gatherings at the home when he lived there full-time, which included guests like civil rights activist Rosa Parks and football star William “The Refrigerator” Perry. The former NFL player is now trying to bring some of the people involved in the party together to help them take a different path. He called them “the future leaders, each who possess tremendous potential if they choose to do the right thing, make the right choices, and take the first steps.” For more on Holloway’s efforts, visit www.HelpMeSave300.com. Graffiti litters the walls of Brian Holloway’s barn in New York after a party there allegedly involved some 300 teenagers. Holloway was at his home in Lutz while the party was taking place.

By B.C. Manionbcmani on@cnewspubs.comRunners who enjoy starting their Thanksgiving Day with a Turkey Trot will have a new option this holiday season. Instead of driving to the Turkey Trot in Clearwater or the FishHawk Turkey Trot, area runners will be able to do a 5-kilometer or a one-miler at the first Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. The race will begin at 7:30 a.m. on Nov. 21. Brian Brink, the race director, came up with the idea for the Wiregrass Wobble. However, he credits his wife Erica with coming up with the name and dreaming up the prize that winners will receive an engraved carving board for use at their holiday gatherings later in the day. Besides giving runners a new race, the event is raising money for Feeding America Tampa Bay and the New Tampa YMCA. Brink, who is general manager of Fitniche at The Shops at Wiregrass, said the idea for the event came out of the weekly run he organizes at the mall every Thursday night. There are two groups of runners who run at the mall with one heading out at 6 p.m., and the second at 6:30 p.m., Brink said. Since they always meet on Thursdays, A look at some of the participants of a weekly Thursday night run at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. The Thursday night runners inspired the idea for the Wiregrass Wobble Turkey Trot, scheduled for the first time this coming Thanksgiving. (Photo by B.C.

It was a housing boom like no other seen before, a bubble that popped so loudly, it almost took the nations entire economy with it. One of the states hit worst by the housing crash was Florida, especially Pasco County, which saw unprecedented new home growth right before the market came to a screeching halt. Suddenly communities that once had to figure out how to build homes fast enough were now trying to figure out how to sell the homes they already had. Life switched from community developers making huge profits, to just trying to survive. And it was clear that not everyone was going to make it through with all eyes on Connerton. There were a few times when we thought the market was getting better, only to find it didnt, said Stewart Gibbons, an executive-turned-consultant with Connerton.

The Florida Department of Transportation plans to close the State Road 54 northbound off-ramp of the Suncoast Parkway from 9 p.m. Sept. 25 to 6 a.m. Sept. 26 for the installation of a temporary asphalt and barrier wall. The southbound off-ramp of County Line Road will be closed from 9 p.m. Sept. 26 to 6 a.m. Sept. 27 for the same reason. This is all part of the continued conversion project that will make the entire Suncoast Parkway all-electronic tolling between Van Dyke Road and U.S. 98. The total project is costing $24.2 million. It includes gantry foundation installation, toll plaza equipment buildings, asphalt milling and resurfacing, roadway reconstruction and widening, lighting, drainage, utilities and final landscape work. The 42-mile project is expected to be completed by June 2015. Throughout the rest of the Veterans Expressway, drivers should prepare for general lane closures nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. FDOT asks that motorists drive with caution through work zones, and adhere to posted detour signs and speed limits.

One fibromyalgia patient said it like this For people who take good health for granted, its hard to imagine a condition that makes simple tasks great tests of will and determination. Contrary to what some people believe, youre not lazy or crazy. Fibromyalgia is a real disease with real pain. Clinical studies have shown the majority of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event (like a car accident, work injury or a fall), sometimes months or years later. Mark Pelligrino, MS (author of The Fibromyalgia Survivor), reported that after studying over 2,000 fibromyalgia patients files, he found two-thirds of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event. Maybe your past doctors dont even believe that your fibromyalgia is a real disease, but you know it is. You feel it every day when you wake up in the morning, when you try to keep your house cleanedeven simple tasks like cooking dinner becomes a chore. Prescription drugs are at best a band-aid that may cover up the daily warning signs of a painful disease, but often have unwanted side effects. My name is Dr. Michael A. Craven, owner of Craven Chiropractic Clinic in Land OLakes. Over the past 35 years, Ive used gentle treatments to help thousands of chronic pain patients feel better and live healthier, more joyful lives. I am reaching out to sufferers of chronic pain or fibromyalgia and offer the following program. An in-depth consultation about your health and well-being where I will listenreally listen to all the details of your case and concerns. A review of all medications and prior treatments that you have attempted in the past. A complete neuromuscular examination. A full set of x-rays, if necessary, to determine if a spinal problem is contributing to your pain or symptoms. A thorough analysis of your history, then all exam and x-ray findings explained to you, so we can start mapping out your very own personalized plan to becoming pain free. I will explain how dietary changes, nutritional supplements, physical therapy devices like LASER, and spinal nerve therapy can restore your health.

She was diagnosed with an autoimmune form of alopecia, where Emilys immune system attacks hair follicles, preventing new hair from growing. As a young girl, Emily covered her head with hats or bandanas. But since seventh grade, the now 17-year-old Land O Lakes High School senior has worn wigs, When I got my first wig, I didnt really want to wear it, Raymond said. I was just afraid to, I guess. Good wigs, especially those made from natural human hair, are expensive, ranging in price from $700 to $2,000, she said. Thats why nonprofit groups like Locks of Love are so needed. I am definitely grateful, said Raymond, who plans to attend Pasco-Hernando Community College next year to begin studying to become a dental hygienist. Its wonderful that people want to grow their hair out and donate it to for others to wear. Thats what Audrey Pease, a Mary Kay cosmetics sales consultant, decided to do for Raymond. Pease met her when Raymond was just 12. Her son and Raymonds brother attended Boy Scout meetings together, and Raymond would tag along. I didnt really understand what was going on with her, Pease said. But when I learned what was wrong, and what it costs to buy wigs, I knew I had to help. Pease tried a fundraiser through Mary Kay, raising $100 for a wig. But as an encore, Pease decided to add something to this years fundraiser she would actually donate some of her hair. Id been growing it for three years, and I didnt want to get it cut until it was long enough to help Emily, Pease said.Locks of Love, which started in 1997, requires hair donations to be at least 10 inches long. It has to be bundled in a ponytail or braid, and cannot be bleached. Pease had 12 inches of hair ready to go, and it took just seconds for stylist Lucy Rosado to cut it away.I love my new haircut, Pease said afterward. My hair had been getting in my face a lot, and made it hard for me to turn my head while I was driving. Its shorter now than what it was when I first started to grow it out, so it will take some getting used to. Peases hair will not necessarily go to Raymond. However, such donations can save Locks of Love money from acquiring hair from other sources, thus bringing their overall costs down. The nonprofit does sell hair it doesnt or cant use, a controversial practice it says is necessary to help offset manufacturing costs. That includes shorter and gray hair. While Raymond wont benefit directly from Peases hair donation, she will benefit from Peases latest fundraiser. Through Nov. 15, Pease is donating 40 percent of her Mary Kay sales to help Raymond get a new wig. Thats pretty much everything I make from the sale, Pease said. But its absolutely worth it. Raymond has two wigs custom-made for her right now, but she really only uses one. At one point she had four, but she donated two of hers to a family friend who also was losing her hair. I joke around with my friends that I could just get a bunch of different-colored wigs, and wear a different wig each and every day, Raymond said. I want to do it. For more information on Audrey Peases fundraising benefit for Emily Raymond, visit tinyurl.com/RaymondLocks. Hair-raising fundraising event planned for Land O Lakes teen It took Audrey Pease three years to grow her hair this long, and only seconds for stylist Lucy Rosado of Susans Mane Tamer in Lutz to cut it off. Its all to support Emily Raymond, background, and Locks of Love. (Photos by Michael Hinman)

By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comId like you to imagine the most important person in your life, Cara Filler told the crowd in Gaither High Schools auditorium. With your eyes closed, imagine what your life would be without them. Thats how Filler began her talk during a motivational speaking appearance in front of Gaithers senior class. The most important person in Fillers life was her twin sister, Mairin Johnston. But she died the day after they shared their 18th birthday, not long after they graduated from high school. It was a car accident just three miles away from the mall where both had just been hired to work at a Disney store. Mairin left the mall with her boyfriend driving, allegedly hitting speeds of 110 mph in a 35-mph zone. He lost control of the car and crashed. The boyfriend sustained some minor injuries. He paid a $150 speeding ticket and spent 15 days in jail. Mairin lost her life. This was Fillers best friend. The person who was going to be her maid of honor. The one who would be hanging out with her when they were in their 80s. Now Filler shares her story through the Drive to Save Lives tour, talking about the importance of making smart choices to stay safe. She made similar stops at Wharton and Steinbrenner high schools, too, which were among the 10 schools in Florida she visited to spread her message. Students Against Destructive Decisions, better known as SADD, and the Florida Department of Transportation sponsored Fillers appearances. FDOT, for the first time, has put teen safe driving as part of their strategic plan, said Danielle Branciforte, SADDs state coordinator. These kinds of presentations remind students that there are consequences for every action, Branciforte said. At times during Fillers hour-long talk, one could hear a pin drop in the auditorium. At other times, the place rocked with laughter. In the end, students gave Filler a standing ovation. Many said they appreciated her candor, her humor and her practical advice. Filler, who grew up in Vancouver, B.C., now lives north of Portland, Ore. She travels around the country, coaxing audience members to keep themselves safe and avoid becoming statistics. She gives about 150 talks a year and has been doing that for 18 years. I can tell you the second my sister died, said Filler, who was driving behind her sister and witnessed the crash. She could only watch as emergency workers at the scene were unable to save her. She died because she made a bad choice. Filler said she continues to give the talks because she wants her sisters death to have meaning. Im sick and tired of car crashes being the No. 1 killer of youth, Filler said. I watched them rip the car apart to try to get my sister out. There was nothing they could do for her. While recounting her sisters death was dramatic and poignant, Fillers talk also painted a portrait of the joys and hassles of life as a twin. She used self-deprecating humor to build connections with the audience, believing that if she can make the kids laugh, she can also make them listen. Gaither principal Marie Whelan told students that she is always concerned about their safety, and she encouraged them to look out for themselves and their friends. She wants to see them walk across the stage on graduation day next June.I want you to be able to be that maid of honor or best man in your best friends weddings, Whelan said. I want you to be there for them, when their children are born and all of those special moments in life. Sharon Hall, program manager for Mothers Against Drunk Driving, knows too well the depth of Fillers pain. State troopers knocked at Halls door at 11 one night five years ago to tell her that her 26-year-old son, Louis B. Hall, was killed in a wreck on the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway. He was a passenger. The driver was speeding, and impaired, and lost control, Hall said. Some members of Gaithers SADD chapter said they think Fillers comments will hit home with their peers. I think she gave great tips on how to prevent accidents, said Autumn Riedy, 17. Every day teenagers go to parties and you can prevent stuff (from) happening.Brad Smith, 17, said he thinks Fillers talk really opened the eyes of a lot of students who think, Its not going to happen to me.Were all going to college next year. This is a good message to keep in the back of your heads, to make good decisions. Sometimes just saying, No, is all you have to say, Smith said. Its also important to intervene, to help friends avoid foolish actions, Smith said. If you dont say something and something happens, youre going to regret it, he said. Distracted driving is a big issue, said Brittany French, 17. My dad is always telling me not to text and drive, she said. Youre looking down. Youre not really paying attention. French connected when Filler asked the crowd to imagine the person closest to them. Personally, mine would be my little sister, French said. Shes my everything. I couldnt imagine my life without her.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 4 Service TimesSunday Bible Class 10 AM Sunday Worship 11 AM Sunday Evening 6:30 PM Wednesday 7 PM Were close by, and easy to find. 17841 Hunting Bow Circle Lutz FL 33558 813-920-9393 Youre Invitedtampabaybaptist.com Open HouseSunday October 20, 11amFood for all and games for children following service 813-949-7424CALLFORANAPPOINTMENT21533 VILLAGELAKESSHPGCTR.

If youre already in a car, and its dangerous, get out of the car Speak up for yourself, Filler said. My sister didnt. Thats why shes dead. Lie if you have to Tell the driver you have to pee, Filler said. Or tell the driver you think youre going to puke. Call your parents Not popular, Filler said, but its a move that can save lives. Teenagers not driving can also volunteer to be the designated texter, to make sure the driver doesnt do that. And if all else fails? Hide the car keys, Filler said.

Mani onb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mPasco Regional Medical Center is inviting the public to take a stroll down memory lane, reminiscing about a history in Dade City that stretches back four decades. The hospital is having its 40th anniversary celebration from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Oct. 1, at the facilitys 13100 Fort King Road location. The event will feature hospital tours, a bit of nostalgia and hors doeuvres. Visitors will be able to hear about some of the many advances the hospital has made since it opened on Oct. 1, 1973, as Community General Hospital. On that first day, the hospital had 14 patients, one surgery, 64 beds, 28 physicians, a five-bed intensive care unit, two operating rooms and a nursery that was large enough to accommodate eight babies. It was Dade Citys second hospital. Over the years, the hospital has changed ownership and names several times. Recently, the hospital announced its affiliation with Bayfront Health network and soon will change its name to Bayfront Health Dade City. The Bayfront Health network consists of seven hospitals, stretching 150 miles along the Interstate 75 corridor from Brooksville to Punta Gorda.To put things in perspective, when Pasco Regional Medical Center opened its doors, a postage stamp cost 8 cents, the average household earned $10,512 a year, and people, on average, lived to slightly more than 71 years old.In the four decades since the hospital opened its doors, it has gone through enormous change, too. It now is one of Pasco Countys biggest economic generators, with an annual payroll of $23 million. The nationally accredited hospital is a 120-bed acute care facility providing inpatient, outpatient and emergency care.The hospital serves as a Designated Primary Stroke Center, and specializes in advanced minimally invasive surgical techniques including single-incision laparoscopic surgery, robotic surgery and incision-less procedures. The hospital is now under new ownership following a $7.6 billion buyout of its parent company. Health Management Associates Inc., the Largo-based company that owns Pasco Regional and 22 other hospitals in Florida, was sold to Community Health Systems Inc., in a deal announced July 30. The sale is not expected to affect the hospitals name change.For more information about the hospital, visit PascoRegionalMC.com. Pasco Regional Medical Center, which is changing its name to Bayfront Health Dade City, has a long history in the East Pasco County area. By the numbers 20,750: Emergency room visits 4,305: Surgeries195: Physicians $23 million: Annual payroll 120: Licensed beds Highlights through the years1973: Hospital has a ribbon cutting on Sept. 30, drawing a crowd of more than 2,000.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Everyone enjoyed such a nice evening event last month when the Bluegrass band played here, that we decided to add more fun, introducing our newest addition to the Caf and Market, Hersheys Ice Cream, Tiffany smiled, as she added, we only display 12 flavors, but can serve the entire 120 flavors offered from Hersheys. Tiffany said she was pleasantly surprised to see that the addition of Ice Cream has not affected the Gelato sales. Gelato and Ice Cream are uniquely different in taste, texture and content. Both are going to be featured on our new evening Menu, along with Specialty Coffees, Frappe Drinks and Desserts, Tiffany added. Tiffany went on to explain, we are developing three distinct product offering periods daily, and soon will be offering special menus for each group. The Morning menu will offer our fabulous KAHWA coffee selections along with fresh baked bagels and pastries and a variety of egg sandwich styles. The Luncheon menu will offer our unique Multi-Grain Panini and Spinach Wrap sandwiches. Chris offers daily specials in addition to the everyday menu variety. The Evening menu will be focused on relaxing Specialty Coffee Drinks, Ice Cream, Gelato, Desserts and Fresh Baked Pastries. The Wilderness Caf is located at the north entrance to Wilderness Commons Shopping Center. 20646 Wilderness Lake Blvd. 813-388-6872 FREE WIFI Visit their Facebook page: Wilderness Market and Caf for daily posts and updatesWilderness Caf Hersheys Ice Cream & Live Bluegrass Music Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE If youve been driving by Connerton recently, Central Pasco's New Town, and you were wondering what sounds you were hearing, its not just the honking of the sandhill cranes you will hear hammers pounding, saws buzzing, power tools whirring and contractor trucks driving in and out, as the New Town awakens to a fresh economy. Connerton's developer, Hayman Woods, a Dallasbased development company, promised to bring this community back to life after the housing bust, and they are keeping their promise. Since their grand reopening in May of this year, almost 40 homes are under contract with four outstanding builders, Taylor Morrison, Ryland, M/I Homes and Homes by WestBay. These builders offer innovative floor plans from 1,481 to over 6,300 sq. ft. with prices from the low $100s to over $700,000. The residents are excited to see all of the activity. Connerton was given the New Town designation by the State of Florida and Pasco County. To be designated as a New Town, a community must include certain uses. In addition to residential home building, a New Town offers education, recreation, retail and commercial development. When they say, timing is everything, the phrase certainly applied to the opening of Connerton during the real estate boom, and the slowdown during the bust. However, Connerton is now well-positioned for the economic recovery because its amenities, parks, trails and an $8 million dollar clubhouse are already in place. The 10,000 sq. ft. clubhouse offers a state-of-the-art fitness center, super pool with a unique aquatic playground and childrens wading pool. A caf, meeting rooms for resident and community use, plus tennis and basketball courts are all available as part of the Connerton lifestyle. The annual Labor Day ice cream social was recently coordinated by Amy Gallogly, the onsite activities director, and her staff. She keeps residents busy with holiday parties, nature walks, scavenger hunts, wine tasting events, and is always willing to listen to other suggestions. In addition to the clubhouse, an extensive trail and boardwalk system runs throughout the community, and will eventually connect all of the villages. These trails and walkways help to promote a more sociable, pedestrian culture.

They announced that plan about a week before Thanksgiving, Brink said. Much to his surprise, roughly 150 people showed up. Brink figured if that many people turned out with just a weeks notice, the event could draw substantially more runners with more lead time. Thus began the planning for this years event, which Brink believes will attract at least 1,000 runners. We have Seven Oaks and Meadow Pointe and all of these giant neighborhoods within a few miles of here that are (homes to) young families, Brink said.He expects runners to come from such communities as Wesley Chapel, New Tampa, Zephyrhills, Dade City, Land O Lakes and Lutz.Lutz resident Jonathan Bosque, 18, said he plans to be there. The Freedom High student has run at the Turkey Trot in Clearwater for the past three years. I just love running, Bosque said. This is a great community place for running.Brink said he expects the Wiregrass Wobble to become a premier event for the area because the other Turkey Trots are so far away.The Clearwater one is the biggest one. They have about 15,000 people doing four different races, Brink said. To get down there, to get parking, to get registered, everything like that, its going to take over an hour to do all that. Theres so many people in the North Tampa area that have no desire to wake up that early on Thanksgiving morning. So, really the area needed something like this. I think were going to have a huge turnout, Brink said.He also noted that once the county gets a planned park built on adjacent land in Wiregrass Ranch, organizers can add a 10k run.The route of the Wiregrass Wobbles 5k will go around the mall and Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, ending to the top of the malls parking garage. Doing 3.1 miles takes some maneuvering, Brink said, noting the idea is to keep the race off busy roads. Luckily we have a really big parking garage over there that will give us some distance. The race director thinks the event will be a popular choice for families who want to take a walk or run before settling down later to their Thanksgiving meals. He also thinks it will be a nice option for people who are having family in for the holiday. People are traveling on Thanksgiving to be with family. Theyre looking for something to do together, Brink said. Runners who register early enough will receive a T-shirt thats designed to keep them dry and cool while they race. The 5k will also be a chip-timed event, Brink said. The chip ensures that racers are timed from the start line to the finish. Registration is $25 for the 5k and $20 for the one-miler. Runners who sign up in person at any Fitniche location or the New Tampa YMCA can get a $5 discount if they donate five nonperishable goods for the food bank, Brink said. Registrations are also being accepted online at signmeup.com. Runners will also be able to register on race day.WOBBLE, from page 1 homes just off U.S. 41 just south of State Road 52. By the time of the crash, however, just 300 homes had been built, and there was tremendous concern by some there wouldnt be any more. Especially when Terrabrook, Connertons original developer, pulled out in 2009. There was a lot of information out there, frankly some information that was incorrect and slanted, and naturally, when youre a large community, people are going to focus on you, Gibbons said. We certainly saw the effects of that to some degree.However, Connerton may be emerging from dark times. The construction industry, dormant for years, has now returned. And since relaunching under a new owner last May CoastOak Group and Hayman Woods LLC Connerton has sold some 40 homes, and is poised to do even more before the year is out.And Connerton is not alone. Some of Pascos other large communities, which suffered during the downturn, are starting to come back. And the timing couldnt be better to see more people calling this part of the county home.Bright future?We love the Tampa market, said Barbara Kininmonth, sales and marketing director for Crown Community Development, which owns the WaterGrass development off Curley Road. We love it so much that we sold out all our single-family lots at WaterGrass.The community, designed for just under 1,200 homes, has more than 600 in the books already. With the first phase complete, Crown now has plans to start 356 additional homes using five builders Standard Pacific Homes, Ryland Homes, Homes by WestBay, Bakerfield Luxury Homes and Arthur Rutenberg Homes. Sales picked up briskly once the housing market returned because WaterGrass spent the money needed to maintain common areas, and to keep it attractive for any potential buyers who wandered in. We develop communities across the country, and our standards never decreased, Kininmonth said. The level of upkeep for the community never changed. We worked to make sure lots were ready for builders, and we continued on plans for parks and other amenities, all as they were originally planned during the boom. The spring quarter has made many builders optimistic. Metrostudy, a company that tracks housing data across the country, said the Tampa Bay area experienced 1,838 housing starts during that time period, up nearly 48 percent from a year ago. However, actual closings are down a bit compared to the same time in 2012, off by just less than 6 percent. That may be because of the lukewarm job growth in the area. Were very bullish on the whole Tampa market, said David Caillouette, the owners representative for LakeShore Ranch off U.S. 41, not far from Connerton. I would love to see job growth come back because housing is dependent on job growth. Last spring, 33,300 new jobs were reported in the Tampa Bay region, according to the same Metrostudy report, up nearly 3 percent. However, unemployment rates are still fluctuating between 6.9 percent and 7.2 percent. Yet, its a far cry from more than 9 percent unemployment, which is where Florida was a year ago.Help wantedSome of the jobs coming back are construction. In fact, the only reason why the construction industry hasnt grown faster is because there arent enough skilled people in the area to fill the jobs. And that could slow housing growth in Pasco. We lost an awful lot of the labor force after the crash, said Connertons Gibbons, who also speaks on behalf of the Tampa Bay Builders Association. They just wanted jobs, so many people moved on to other geographic areas like Texas, and others left the industry altogether, and probably wont be coming back. Also possibly hurting some communities is the Pasco County Commissions recent failure to pass a gas tax hike. Such money couldve been used to maintain worn roads, like those found in communities trying to get back on their feet. Connerton, for example, built its roads several years ago, but depends on the county to maintain them. If you dont maintain potholes, they only get bigger and more expensive to fix, Gibbons said. The tax wouldve cost people an additional $2 or $3 a month, which seemed like a fairly modest number. The county has such a strong emphasis on economic development, but its hard to do if the roads are bad. Since the housing crash of 2008, there have been several starts and stops in the market that only teased a recovery. That has resulted in a cautious approach by builders, even as Pascos demand for homes continue to grow. We dont want a repeat of a few years ago where everyone built far more homes than people were actually able to buy, LakeShore Ranchs Caillouette. People wanted to move to the suburbs before the economy went south, and Pasco was the next spot they were all going to. We expect well be picking up right where we left off. Except now at a much different and slower pace.HOMES, from page 1 By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comWhen the last book in J.K. Rowlings bestselling series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, was released in 2007, Jason De La Torre was in line ready for his copy.But once he finished the book, the Wesley Chapel resident realized a troubling fact: There was now a magical void in the world of literature. So using his own money, De La Torre created Star Mage, an enchanting story told in comic book form that takes a young wizard out into space. He wrote the story, hired an artist to ink it. And then shopped it around to all the major comic book publishers. And De La Torres work has paid off. Last week he signed a deal with IDW Publishing in San Diego that will put his story on the shelves of bookstores all over the country next April.I grew up reading comics, and Ive always had a love for them, De La Torre said. At one point, in 2011, I just started wondering what goes into being a comic book writer. I knew I couldnt draw worth a lick, but I knew I could come up with an interesting story.Star Mage centers around Darien Connors, a 14-year-old boy who discovers he has magical abilities. That discovery, however, pulls him into a war that involves not only his family, but the entire galaxy as well.You dont want to be a cheap rip-off of Harry Potter, De La Torre said. You definitely have to be sure the ideas youre going with are original. That is what I try to do, come up with the most original story I could, but keeping some of the familiarity with what I love and what is successful out there, too.Dariens skills do have a much different explanation. It is part of a practice known as Kishpu, and hes not the only one that can do it. He quickly teams up with three young friends Anthaar, Tirwa and Unura and soon find themselves in battle with a hated enemy, Orasmas Xul Sarrum. Star Mage has all the elements young comic book readers are looking for, while developing a story that will give them something completely new, De La Torre said. De La Torre was born and raised in Tampa, and moved to Wesley Chapel with his wife Rita in 2007. During the day hes a tech guy with a healthcare company. His evenings, however, are spent writing the first six issues of Star Mage, which IDW will release as a limited series in the spring. If all goes well, and sales are strong, it could lead to a regular monthly series for Star Mage by the end of next year. Each comic issue takes about 90 days to create from start to finish, with most of that time devoted to the art. Ray Dillon inked the first issue, previously making a name for himself with projects based on Peter Pan and the HBO series Game of Thrones. Franco Cespedes takes over after that, continuing a world where science-fiction and magical fantasy collide.IDW is a newer company, founded in 1999, but it already is the nations sixth-largest publisher for many popular franchises like My Little Pony, True Blood, Star Trek and Transformers. IDW has even had some of its comics optioned for films by studios like Paramount Pictures and Dimension Films. With comic book adaptations making billions of dollars at the box office, De La Torre said he cant help but dream of seeing Star Mage on the silver screen.If there was a movie, I definitely would want them to respect the original material, De La Torre said. But I understand that comics and the actual movie business are two different things, they have to appeal to a much broader audience. That is a part of life.And that life could change for De La Torre pretty quickly if Star Mage becomes a success. It could mean full-time devotion to writing, and possibly even adapting some of his other independently published novels to the comic form as well. I can guarantee you, I will be taking pictures the minute my comic book shows up on the shelf, De La Torre said. I have a lot of ideas Im ready to work on, and Ill always be focused on things that I would enjoy, and maybe others will enjoy as well.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 16 The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Pasco Sheriffs Office has partnered with Logo Outfitters to create and sell a variety of T-shirts to raise money for the departments SWAT team. The Special Weapons and Tactics tam will attend the international SWAT Roundup competition in Orlando in November, and proceeds from the T-shirt sales will help fund the trip and training ahead of it. Excess proceeds will be used for additional training and equipment needs.The sheriffs office estimates that $8,000 is needed to fund the unified SWAT team, including a $900 fee to register five of the eight-member team, as well as costs for the hotel, per diem and team uniforms.This would be Pascos first appearance at the competition since 2008. The current SWAT team was created in 2011 with deputies from the sheriffs office as well as officers from the New Port Richey Police Department. It consists of 55 members who respond to high-risk situations in the county. They also assist other departments that dont have SWAT teams like in Zephyrhills, Dade City and Port Richey. The Orlando competition is the premier SWAT competition, last year featuring 51 teams from Brazil, Sweden, Hungary, Romania, Switzerland, Jamaica and more. The weeklong event consists of training offered in morning sessions followed by an evening or afternoon competitive event. Those events include hostage rescue, team obstacle and firing course, tower scramble, and an officer rescue. The T-shirts, featuring the design work of Cpl. Keith Krapfl, cost $18 each, and are available at www.logooutfitters.net/pascoswat. Donations outside the T-shirt sale can be made by sending a check or money order to Pasco Sheriffs Charities, P.O.

Manionb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mAs the nation grapples with a physician shortage, Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point is gearing up to offer the first internal medicine residency program in Pasco County. The hospital has received approval from the American Osteopathic Association for the program that is scheduled to begin with six residents in July 2014. This program is the hospitals first step in developing graduate medical education residency programs. It also intends to add Allopathic Graduate Medical Education Programs in general surgery and internal medicine in 2015. The hospital is honored to extend an opportunity to participate in the hospitals post-graduate medical education program, Shayne George, the hospitals chief executive officer, said in a news release. Our program will be dedicated to providing the highest quality graduate medical education for those who come to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point from the nations medical schools, he said. The program will help address a growing need for doctors, according to the 2012 Physician Workforce Annual Report issued by the Florida Department of Health. Florida has added undergraduate medical education capacity by opening new medical schools, but lags in creating corresponding graduate medical education opportunities, the report states. Preventing the annual export of qualified GME (residency) candidates to other states is the first step toward shaping the physician workforce of the future, the report adds. Statistics contained in the report reveal that nearly 12 percent of Pascos active doctors plan to retire within the next five years, and nearly 4 percent plan to relocate. Next door, in Hillsborough County, 10 percent of doctors plan to retire within five years and 3 percent plan to relocate. Those figures compound the problems of an expected increase in health care demands, as more people are insured to meet requirements of the nations changing health care laws, and as the states population ages. Planning for the residency program began more than a year ago, said Kurt Conover, spokesman for Regional Medical Center Bayonet, a 290-bed acute care hospital at 14000 Fivay Road in Hudson. It will take internal medicine residents three years to complete the residency program.Students from Osteopathic Medical Schools from around the country will be eligible to apply, Conover said. The information will also be posted on the hospitals website.Florida is a popular state for training, he said, adding that the hospital anticipated filling six positions beginning next July. Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point has a nationally acclaimed heart institute, more than 350 physicians, 900 employees and 500 volunteers on its integrated health care delivery team.

The topiaries at the front of the property are a dead giveaway that creativity has found a home here. Theres a horse with a mane made of vines. Three mushrooms squat beneath giant oaks. A dolphin leaps in mid-flight. And a baby elephant, complete with a water-hose trunk, serves as a giant planter. These are just a few tangible examples of Cindy Seiferts imagination at work. Walk out behind the artists home and youll find a butterfly garden with plenty of winged creatures hanging out. Shell show you where the herbs used to be, before the butterflies gobbled them up.

Theres a carousel figure and some caricature sculptures. And, poke your head into the basement and youll find a classroom, where Seifert has begun offering classes for women and children.

The shed i s m ade of plywood, pai nted to resem ble wood planks.jects of everyday life are made up of various shapes. Everything, according to Seifert, is made of shapes. The artist is also passionate about nature and teaches people how to design their own butterfly gardens. Her classes are $20 an hour. It typically takes four one-hour classes to learn how to design a butterfly garden, said Seifert, who is actually self-taught. Ive been creating art ever since I was a very small child, said the woman who grew up in Ohio. My first paying job, I was in thirdgrade. My girlfriends father commissioned me to paint a picture for their dairy farm, a cows picture. After that, the dairy farmers hired me to paint pictures. I was able to make a sizable side income. She later worked as a commercial artist. Now, she creates sculptures, murals, portraits and other works. She does much of her business online. Seifert became interested in creating topiaries after making carousel figures about 15 years ago. There was an art show at the Northdale Library, the original location down in Tampa, and I brought one of my carousel figures in, she said. The response was overwhelming. As a result of that show, Seifert was commissioned to build some carousel figures for the childrens area at the library. The topiaries are actually built off the blueprints I created to build the carousel figures, Seifert said, adding she doesnt use pressed molds or prefabricate her works. Everything is handcrafted. I design everything, blueprint everything. Seifert decided to start offering lessons so she could share her knowledge and her love for art and gardening. She calls her classes Lessons from Cindy Seifert Art Gardens. At the moment, she has just five students, but she believes shes been called to create the program. I think that God puts us here for a reason to share our knowledge, and I think that it is a privilege, Seifert said. God has given me stewardship of all of these things here in my life, to be able to not just cultivate a garden, but to cultivate minds.

The team at Wesley Chapel High School had a couple of players from the golf team graduate last year, and even lost some talent to other sports this season. Because of that, Coach Mike Rogers was expecting his team to learn from this year and build up experience for the future. Instead, his golfers earned a 6-4 record in September and have already eclipsed last years win total of four victories. Its been quite refreshing to see how weve come through, Rogers said. To beat some of the teams weve beaten, Ive been pretty impressed. Wesley Chapel opened the season with a victory over Wiregrass Ranch, a team that beat them in 2012. Rogers said they even had respectable showings in losses to perennial powerhouses Plant and Jesuit. Having a lot of young players to go along with a few sophomores and upperclassmen might be a frustrating challenge for some coaches, but Rogers enjoys it. Now in his third year coaching boys golf, he sees a team with a lot of talent and athleticism, and he appreciates the individual attitudes and personalities on it. And those players are responding with good play on the courses especially some of the freshmen. In fact, Rogers said his top athlete, Tyler Rover, is one of his many players who are new to the high school sport experience. Hes my No. 1 golfer at this moment, Rogers said of the freshman. Hes just been outstanding for his first year in high school golf. While Rover is new to the high school format (hes never played golf as a team competition before), hes no stranger to the sport itself: Hes been playing in amateur golf tournaments since he was 9. And his enthusiasm runs in the family. His father, Randy, is a PGA Club Pro at the Avila Golf & Country Club in Tampa. He also volunteers with his sons golf team and offers tips and advice to both the newer and experienced golfers. With his father and a new coach guiding him in high school, Tyler has learned to appreciate having a team component to an individual sport. I think its definitely a little relieving since you have a few teammates behind you to pick you up if youre down, he said. You go up and play the best you can for each shot, and if your friends play well, its even better. Tyler explained that golf can be mentally and physically draining thats what he enjoys about the sport so its a positive experience to participate with other students and have a coach help him. Even though the team is still working its way through the season (with individual competitions at the district, regional and state levels to follow), Tyler said hes already seen benefits from working with Rogers. Coach Rogers has definitely given us lots of opportunities, he said. I think its good to get some different knowledge about my game. For his part, Rogers believes that his teams success lies mostly with the ones who are making the tough shots. Theyve put a lot of work and time and effort into it, Rogers said. I dont think its necessarily anything Ive done. I think its what theyve put into it, and some good oldfashioned talent as well. Whoever deserves the credit for the teams success, both the players and coaches know that the teams prospects look even better down the road, as freshmen turn into experienced upperclassmen. Rogers is excited to see the team grow together, and Rover knows they have a bright future as well. Thats what weve been talking about all year, he said. If we get our new players to keep improving and learning new things, well definitely be good for the next three years. The Wesley Chapel High School golf team has already surpassed last years victory total with a 6-4 record in September. Thats despite having a team made up primarily of freshman. Helping in that winning effort are, from left, Aaron Hoyte, Zack Marquadt, Zack Le mmens, Tyler Rover, Alex Nay, David Lee and Ben Wolfman.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike MatthewSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsWhen your child is sick, you don't want to wade through automated prompts, voice mail menus or negotiate with an answering service. You want a live person to help answer your concerns and a physician's office, who knows you by name, not medical record number. Being mothers themselves, the staff at Dr. Nina's Pediatrics places great emphasis on answering family concerns. These physicians founded their practice around the premise of patient-centered care and accessibility. Patients are always able to reach the staff quickly and easily during office hours and they strive to personally answer phone calls after hours. Dr. Yanina Abaunza-Fiallos has been practicing in the Tampa area for 17 years, and opened her own practice in Lutz in November 2003. Dr. Luisa Gomez McElroy has been practicing in the Tampa area for 15 years, joining Dr. Nina in May 2012. Both doctors are board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics. "We're a small practice," says Dr. Nina. "There are only two doctors. This allows us to get to know our patients well." "We love our patients and their families," says Dr. Luisa. "We don't just provide a diagnosis and move on. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa always take the time to answer questions and educate their patients and their parents. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa pay close attention to each child's development and provide parents with tools to recognize development issues early on. Topics such as nutrition and growth are discussed during wellness visits to identify any issues or concerns before they become a problem. They give parents ample opportunity to ask questions to optimize the child's path to wellness. "We follow recommended check-up schedules and place a strong emphasis on prevention and vaccinations, says Dr. Luisa." We firmly believe vaccinations are a part of keeping our children healthy. Our recommendations are based on the American Academy of Pediatric guidelines. Both doctors have many patients in their practice that they cared for from the day they were born, with many continuing to see them into their 20s. As their former patients become parents themselves, they are returning to bring their own children. Doctors and nurses also trust their children's care to Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa which is very heartwarming for them and their staff. "We're not just for babies," says Dr. Nina. "We also provide vaccinations for college, and perform high school and college physical examinations. We deliver 24-hour emergency service and can normally accommodate same-day appointments." Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa are affiliated with three area hospitals: Florida Hospital Tampa, St. Joseph's Women's Hospital and St. Joseph's Hospital North, where they are available to provide newborn care. Free prenatal consultations are also offered so that parents can get to know their baby's doctor prior to delivery. As a student, Dr. Nina was initially interested in teaching children with special needs. Because of this early exposure to children with medical disabilities, she changed career paths to medicine in order to further impact their outcome. Pediatrics was definitely the right path for Dr. Nina and it is a passion that is ignited every time she comes to work. Dr. Luisa decided on a career in pediatrics during medical school. She developed a passion for caring for children. She feels pediatrics has one of the greatest impacts on patients' lives, as she can educate and teach prevention starting in early life. Dr. Nina and Dr. Luisa are currently accepting new patients at Dr. Nina's Pediatrics, and welcome the opportunity to be a part of your child's life. Accessibility, quality and personalized care are just a few of the core values of Dr. Nina's Pediatrics.These pediatricians provide personalized care (813) 964-180018572 N.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS September 25, 2013 21 SPORTS The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportA retired professional football player who makes his home in Lutz is receiving national attention this past week after some 300 teenagers allegedly trashed his vacation home in New York. Brian Holloway, an offensive lineman for the New England Patriots and later the Los Angeles Raiders in the 1980s, learned about the destruction happening at his home in Stephentown, N.Y., as it was happening through Twitter. Now he is working to track down all the teenagers that damaged his home, and is working to get their help in cleaning up. Holloways launched a website to accomplish that. There he says that while broken things can be fixed and stolen things can be returned, the 300 or so people who attended this party are in peril. I know one thing, if my child was involved, I would want to know everything now, Holloway said on his website. We are old school disciplinarians, we do not sit back, we take action. We step in and take charge. Its so easy for kids to get off track if we let them. Holloway bought the house soon after joining the NFL, but now spends most of his time in Florida because of his football injuries. He would host community gatherings at the home when he lived there full-time, which included guests like civil rights activist Rosa Parks and football star William The Refrigerator Perry. The former NFL player is now trying to bring some of the people involved in the party together to help them take a different path. He called them the future leaders, each who possess tremendous potential if they choose to do the right thing, make the right choices, and take the first steps.
