By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPasco Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning is standing by the Common Core State Standards, despite a recent decision by Gov. Rick Scott to put the kibosh on the states participation in a consortia developing assessments for those standards. Scott sent a letter to federal Education Secretary Arne Duncan on Sept. 23 telling him that he would ask the State Board of Education to end Floridas fiscal relationship with the Partnership for Assessment Readiness for College and Careers. Scott said the move was intended to protect the state from federal intrusion into education policy, and a parade of lawmakers and educators applauded Scotts action. Browning did not. Its all political, Browning said. Hes getting a lot of pressure and hes running for re-election. Browning added that Scott is trying to make sure that he has the support of the tea party, a populist movement within the Republican party that opposes the Washington political establishment. Scott was backed by the tea party when he won the governors office in 2010. Florida needs a different way to measure its students progress, Browning said. Florida cannot afford to go back to another homegrown assessment, Browning said.Lutz NEWSFREELutz NEWS SERVING LUTZ/ODESSA OCTOBER 2, 2013 Call AttorneyJIMHOLLIDAY813-868-1887 AUTO ACCIDENT?SLIP & FALL?

The Shops at Wiregrass is near the intersection of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and State Road 56.A show earlier this year attracted the fine arts and fine crafts of 120 artists in a juried event.Artists taking part in the January event can win a number of awards, including best of show, which is accompanied by a $2,000 prize; an award of excellence, which includes a $1,000 prize; two awards of distinction, with a prize of $500 each; and, four awards of merit, with a prize of $250 each.Works offered for sale will include ceramics, leather, printmaking, photography, glass, jewelry, metal, sculpture, clay, graphics and mixed media.

The trees are now safe, at least for a couple of years. (File photo)Trees in Lutz get temporary reprieve from chainsawsBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comTrees in medians on U.S. 41 in Lutz are being spared the ax at least for now. Walmart has agreed to donate $5,000 to pay for maintaining the trees, which should cover the cost for about two years, said State Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz. The company said it would revisit the matter then, Legg said. Meanwhile, that provides time to seek other potential contributors to help cover the cost. Hillsborough County should be credited for its cooperation, Legg said, which helped to ensure the trees were not cut down. See BROWNING, page14 See TREES, page14

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Sister Stroll brings community together to fight cancerBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThey began streaming in at least an hour before the stroll started. Most were wearing pink shirts. There were men and women, senior citizens and children. They all came out for a cause. The eighth annual Sister Stroll at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills on the evening of Sept. 26 was a tribute to those who have lost their lives, or are battling against breast cancer. Many in the crowd had lost a sister or a mother or a friend to cancer. Some had faced the disease and survived. This is a very special event, Don Welch, chief operating officer of Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, told the crowd. Its a very special event for me because my mom passed away from breast cancer. Mary Walters was in the crowd listening to Welch speak. She came to the stroll with her sister, Kathleen Coelho.This is an event I try to support every year for all of the women who have breast cancer, and friends who have had breast cancer, said Walters, who lives in Dade City.Coelho, who also lives in Dade City, volunteers at the Simpson Breast Health Center at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Her personal experiences at the breast health center persuaded her to get involved. I was being treated there and I liked the people, Coelho said. They recently opened a gift shop, and I think its nice that people dont have to travel long distances to get what they need. A huge contingent of Southport Springs residents turned out for the event. We are big fundraisers for the Simpson Breast Health Center, Carla Evans said. Southport Springs supports the center because it believes it is a good cause, said Barbara Debus, another resident there. We know where the money is going, she said. Southport Springs has raised so much money for the center it has a mammogram and a bone density room in the center named in the communitys honor. This year, Southport Springs donated a quilt one of its residents made that will be hung in one of their rooms at the breast center. The community also donated $3,070 for the breast center raised from a dance, a bra parade, a pet parade, chance drawings on baskets and other events. Those attending Sister Stroll, which was on the hospital grounds, had a chance to sign up to become members of the Pink Army, a statewide initiative developed by Florida Hospital to encourage the early detection and prevention of breast cancer. The campaign enlists new members as Pink Army soldiers. They can rise through the ranks and earn rewards by recruiting other soldiers, attending educational events, scheduling a mammogram or completing other missions. Dawn Seqiueira, also of Southport Springs, said she is a major in the Pink Army. Shes recruited 41 soldiers. Its hard to find new recruits there, she said, because so many people already belong. We have a lot of (breast cancer) survivors in our community, she said. Sister Stroll began as a grassroots event to give the community a chance to learn more about preventing breast cancer, to show their support for people fighting breast cancer, and to remember those who have been lost, said Michelle OswaldBianchet, director of marketing for Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Carolyn Sentelik, executive director of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Foundation, said the event gives people a chance to show their support in the battle against breast cancer. It also gives the foundation a chance to thank the community for supporting its efforts. This community is overwhelmingly generous when it comes to breast cancer. Its a chance for us to say thank you, Sentelik said.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 2, 2013 4 By Diane KortusPublisherThe fall blitz of annual dinners sponsored by local business organizations is just about over. The chambers in Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills recently hosted their membership galas, and Dade Citys takes place in a few weeks. There was the massive annual banquet in early September for the Pasco Economic Development Council that was attended by more than 600 people to honor Industry of The Year award winners. Even the Central Pasco Chamber in Land O Lakes, which has its annual dinner in July, didnt escape the fall hoopla. Its Dancing With Our Stars event brought together close to 500 members and friends to cheer on its volunteer dancers and raise money for the chamber. My staff and I attend these events to support these organizations and to share in the joy of recognizing dedicated business people in our communities. These civic-minded leaders give their time, talent and money to help other members grow their businesses through networking, and by sharing their knowledge and experiences. The finale of these dinners is always recognition of the hardest working and most successful members. The programs are heavy on awards, with dozens of individuals and business receiving accolades from their peers for their leadership and willingness to serve on the board and numerous committees. When youre in the audience waiting for one of these dinners to be over so you can get home, one tends to get a bit impatient, as one award seems to roll into the next. When that happens, however, its a good time to close your eyes and think back to a time when you were personally recognized and remember how good it felt. A teacher, coach, employer or organization has recognized most of us at least once in our lives. No matter how insignificant that award may seem today, you still remember how proud you felt when your name was called and you walked to the front of the group to get your plaque and perhaps your photo taken. I find it interesting that no matter our age, were never too old to be recognized for a job well done. Hearing your name ring out above the buzz of the crowd is like being a violin virtuoso. Youre suddenly playing the part that everyone is tuned in to. And so I give accolades to our many chambers, the EDC, the Rotary and Lions clubs and all the other organizations that make it a priority to recognize their members. Recognition is motivational to the recipient and perhaps more importantly, inspirational to those applauding. And some of those clapping will undoubtedly be moved to step it up a notch and work a bit harder so it will be their name that rings out at next years banquet.Recognition motivates and inspires, no matter the age PUBLISHERS COLUMN The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportAll Smiles Tampa Bay were all smiles when it came to awards at this years Dancing with our Stars competition. The company won overall star at the competition, hosted by the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 21, as well as best costume, most original and most entertaining honors.

The event was put together with a team of volunteers as well as stage manager Shelly Acevedo of Broadway Dancesations, and Meredyth Censullo, who served as the mistress of ceremonies. The dance professionals who helped choreograph and teach the dancers included Wendy LaRosa, Terri Dusek, Gina Marchica, Grace Badillo, Roberto Lira, Tamesis Cruz, Leo Florin, Stacey Enyart, Nicole John, Acevedo, Hector Quiles, Frank Sliwa, and Richard and Laurie Collett.

By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comLutz First Friday a food truck rally sponsored by the Lutz Citizens Coalition was supposed to make its debut on Oct. 4 at Lutz Preparatory School. However, its been indefinitely postponed. In an email sent out to Lutz Citizens Coalition members, group president Mike White said the group thought they had reached an agreement with the school and began putting the word out about the rally. Those plans were dropped, however, after the coalition had a second meeting at the school and officials there appeared to be backing out, White said. Yet Diane Farmer, principal at Lutz Preparatory, said the school still wants to work with the coalition on hosting food truck rallies there. Were still in negotiations, Farmer said. Were still trying to work out the details for it. We want to do it. She said there was a problem with logistics, and the school could not meet the coalitions desired schedule. While the monthly truck rally has been put on hold, people who enjoy a flea market, or who want to do their part to help maintain a historic building, will have their chance to do both on Oct. 5 at the Old Lutz School Building Flea Market. It runs from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event raises money for the upkeep of the Old Lutz School, a historic building that local residents fought to preserve when the state was widening U.S. 41. The school itself is at 18819 N. U.S. 41, which is at the corner of Fourth Avenue SE and U.S. 41. Less than a month later, on Nov. 2, the community is having another in a series of events scheduled this year to celebrate the Lutz Centennial. At the Lutz Centennial Cars & Chili event, chili aficionados and classic car buffs will be able to compete for bragging rights. Car buffs and motorcycle enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in the show, which will feature classic cars, exotic cars and motorcycles. The chili cook-off will have two categories: Families and individuals will compete in one, and clubs and organizations will square off in the other. The deadline for registration to compete in the cook-off is 5 p.m. on Oct. 25, and there is a $25 team entry fee. Chili cook-off teams can consist of one chef and two assistants. The chili must be cooked on-site. Since theres no electricity, teams must provide their own LP-gas cooking appliance. They must also supply their own ingredients and cooking utensils. Patrons will be able to purchase official centennial chili cups for $5 each, which they can carry around from team to team to sample different kinds of chili. The tastings will begin at noon and will end when the chili runs out, or at 2 p.m. The celebration will be on the grounds between the old train depot and the Lutz Community Center, between U.S. 41 and the Lutz Branch Library.

LUTZ ACE HARDWARE HONOREDLutz Ace Hardware, 18469 U.S. 41 in Lutz,was one of five hardware retailers honored with Beacon Awards during an awards banquet last month in Marco Island. The Lutz store was honored as the best new store less than 25,000 square feet. The Beacon Awards are a national industry awards program developed by The Hardware Connection magazine and The Hardware Conference. It honors what it deems to be the best hardware and home improvement retailers while encouraging a new generation of retailers to make their mark. Scott and Todd Andrews decided to diversify their pool supply business by opening an Ace Hardware store in January 2012. The store features 11,900 square feet of retail selling space, and has shown strong sales from the beginning, according to a release. Its helped by a strong blend of in-store promotions, local advertising and social media marketing. The stores biggest niche is the 1,500square-foot ELLA Boutique, a gift shop operated by the wives of the brothers, Tina and Andrea Andrews. The Andrews also have a featured spot for their company, Sunshine Pool Service and Repair, with a special service counter and re-tail space. When you open a new store, you dont really expect to win a national honor like this, so were just thrilled about this award, Scott Andrews said in a release. By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comWhen John Hagen made his quarterly report to Pasco County Commissioners earlier this year, he wasnt sure 2013 would end on an upswing for new jobs created in the county. But the fiscal year ended Monday, and Hagen the president and chief executive of the Pasco Economic Development Council has good news: More than 600 high-wage jobs have been created this year, well beyond any expectations. And the growth was capped by Retail Process Engineering LLC moving its operations from Tampa to the Offices of Devonwood off State Road 54 in Land O Lakes, expected to bring 16 new jobs to the county with an average salary of $105,000. Things are definitely looking up, Hagen said. We still have some challenges, but we do feel the momentum is here as activitys been picking up. It bodes well for the upcoming year. A company related to RPE purchased the 4,100-square-foot location at 20537 Amberfield Drive in April for $500,000, according to property records. The company had looked at locations in Tampa and Pinellas County as well, but realized that Pasco was a good fit, said executive vice president Rob Henneke. It didnt hurt that he and many other people who work at RPE already lived in Pasco County. Certainly drive time made a difference for a number of us, as well as certain taxes and some of the incentives that Pasco County was offering, Henneke said. Its certainly a more relaxed atmosphere here compared to Tampa, and were still what I consider to be very close to the airport, which is very important to us and our clients. RPE was founded in 1999 and specializes in strategic, functional and technical consulting for retail merchandising and supply chain services, primarily when it comes to information technology. The new jobs which could earn RPE a cash incentive of up to $5,000 per new job payable over four years would be for those who have at least 15 years of retail experience willing to take on a consultant role for the company, Henneke said.RPE is the fourth technology company to move operations to Pasco County this past year. It joined financial services technology firm InvestCloud, security camera technology company Communication Concepts Inc., and software developer MB2x. And theres still room for more, Hagen said. A recent report by the EDC showed of the 7.5 million square feet of existing office space in the county, 15 percent of it or 1.1 million square feet is still available. Thats enough to fit six Walmart Supercenters. All you have to do is stand on the corner of State Road 56 and Interstate 75, or even State Road 54 and the Suncoast Parkway, and watch all the traffic every morning going south, Hagen said. Having commuted myself, I just realized what a drag it is. So I know there are a lot of other people out there who are trying to one way or another bring their business closer to where they live. RPE services clients around the country and into Canada as well in places like Toronto and Newfoundland. We have a very good reputation out there in the marketplace, Henneke said. As we are able to get the message across of who we are, were seeing more and more clients choosing to use our services. And with that, well just keep expanding.RPE comes to Pasco, bringing high-tech jobs with it Retail Process Engineering moved into its new location at Devonwood off State Road 54 over the weekend. The company bought the space in April, and plans to add 16 high-wage jobs to the area.

Muffin likes to watch the Super Bowl on television, as hes shown here. He is always lounging in front of the television when the games are on. Although you would think Muffin would be unsociable by only watching football games, he has another side to himself. He is a very social dog and loves to walk around the neighborhood and play with the other dogs. Muffin's funniest moment was when he barked angrily at the television when his favorite team, the Pittsburgh Steelers, fumbled the ball. He is often referred to as the mayor of his neighborhood, because he is so friendly and everyone knows him.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe future of health care in America continues to be debated in Washington, D.C. But in the meantime, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says Florida consumers will see increased competition in its health insurance marketplace. According to the report, Florida consumers will be able to choose from an average of 102 health plans in the marketplace. Nationally, the vast majority of consumers will have a choice of at least two different health insurance company, sometimes more. Premiums nationwide will also be around 16 percent lower than originally expected with about 95 percent of eligible uninsured living in states with lower than expected premiums before taking into account financial assistance, according to HHS. We are excited to see that rates in the Florida marketplace are even lower than originally projected, said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, in a release. In the past, consumers were too often denied or pricedout of quality health insurance options, but thanks to the Affordable Care Act, consumers will be able to choose from a number of new coverage options that is affordable. However, not everyone agrees that Florida will indeed see lower premiums through the health care reform. U.S. Rep Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, has said in the past that the reform supported by President Obama does not actually solve our health care problems, will cost trillions of taxpayer dollars without reducing the cost of health care, and adds uncertainty to a struggling economy. U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, agrees, disputing the cost savings the federal government has announced. In an opinion piece he published in July, Ross cited a study from the Health Research & Educational Trust that showed premiums rose an average of nearly $2,400 since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act between the various types of coverage. Although Congress and the President were debating the federal budget, which includes health care reform funding, at press time, open enrollment for the new plan was expected to start Oct. 1, and run through March. Coverage is expected to begin as early as Jan. 1. The HHS report found that the average premium for the lowest-cost plan ranges from $257 and $304, depending on the type of plan selected. The average premium for the second lowest-cost plan in the more common categories is 16 percent below projections, based off of Congressional Budget Office estimates. About 95 percent of uninsured people eligible for the marketplace live in a state where their average premium is lower than projects, according to HHS. In the greater Tampa Bay market, a 27year-old who makes $25,000 annually will pay an average of $113 per month for the lowest-cost plan, and $145 per month for the second-lowest plan in the next tier, after tax credits. For a family of four with an income of $50,000, the lowest-cost plan would cost $165 per month. That is higher than what the same people would pay statewide on average. For Florida, a 27-year-old would pay $96 and $145 respectively, while a family of four would pay $104 per month.

More than 500 people attended the showing. (Photo by Michael Hinman)The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportLast month, hundreds of motorcycle riders gathered in Land O Lakes to visit emergency first responders in the region, thanking them for their service. Now, Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano is highlighting specialty license plates that can benefit groups associated with the bikers. As part of a regular campaign to highlight specialty tags that help charitable organizations in both the community and the state, Fasanos office is featuring the Bikers Care plate that is available for registered motorcycles. The tag comes with an annual donation of $20, and those proceeds benefit six organizations through the Bikers Care Alliance. They include the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, Prevent Blindness Florida, Blind Services Foundation of Florida, Foundation for Vocational Rehabilitation, Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living, and The Able Trust. Since the Bikers Care tag is the only specialty plate for motorcycles, we think kicking things off with the Bikers Care tag is a great start, said Martina Brawer, executive director of the Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living, in a release. It would be nice to see the majority of bikers displaying the tag on their motorcycles, said Thom DeLilla, program administrator for the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, in a release. The promotion runs through October, and is available for purchase in four locations in Pasco County: Land O Lakes, Dade City, New Port Richey and Gulf Harbors. The plates are available at the tax collectors offices in Hillsborough County as well. The Land O Lakes center is located at 4111 Land O Lakes Blvd. in Land O Lakes. The Dade City office is located at 14236 Sixth St., Room 100, in Dade City. Proceeds for the Bikers Care specialty tags benefit several organizations through the Bikers Care Alliance.

Suite 101, Room #4, Lutz, FL 33548MM31331 813.735.8315 The superintendents comments followed a talk he gave about the Common Core State Standards to more than twodozen members of the Republican Club of Central Pasco. Browning made it clear that he stands behind the Common Core State Standards. We need to be able to have a set of standards that engages kids, that gets them to think and not only to get them to give the right answer, but how they came up with that answer, Browning said. That, in large part, is what Common Core is. Theres a perception that Common Core is being driven by the federal government, Browning said. But that isnt true. The National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers led the effort to develop standards, he said. There are three basic components to Common Core State Standards, Browning said. Those components are the standards themselves, the assessments to measure student performance and the data collection. Critics are lumping all three of those elements together. The standards are the standards, the superintendent said. Theres also a misconception about what the standards are, he said. The standards are not curriculum. Curriculum is developed and delivered at the local level. The standards provide the foundation for the curriculum and establish what students need to learn. They do not prescribe how students should be taught, Browning said. A new set of tests will be used to measure student performance. Regardless of what test is used, there will need to be some sort of assessment.Common Core State Standards are intended to raise the bar for students and prepare them to compete in a global economy.Gov. Bush just made a comment this week that summed up exactly the way I feel about Common Core, Browning said, adding he echoed those statements in a letter he sent to Scott. Gov. Bush said, If youre ok with mediocrity, fine. Im not, Browning said. What our current standards really encourage our kids to do is memorize and regurgitate. Common Core is calling for kids to think critically, Browning said. Pasco County needs improvement. Look at our FCAT scores. Look at our reading scores. Look at our math scores. Look at our science scores, he said. Theyre abominable. They really are. Pasco is ranked 34th out of 67 school districts, and thats something that has to be improved, he said. I am tired of the Pasco district playing second fiddle to other districts in the state, Browning added. Teachers have a difficult job, he said. Were getting kids in school that dont know their alphabet. They dont know simple words. Were having to get these kids up to grade level, Browning said. About 450 third-graders each year are held back in Pasco County because they cannot read at grade level. Some of those students are held back twice, Browning said. When a third-grader is retained two times, you can pretty much write them off, he said. And while the district doesnt actually write them off, those children face an uphill battle. Theyre older, they see their peers moving forward. They begin to think that theyre stupid, they cant learn, Browning said. Theyre taller than other third-graders. They dont fit. Common Core State Standards are not a new idea, Browning said. This has been going on for like six years, he said. There were public hearings. There was time for input. There was all this time for public involvement. People who want to learn more about Common Core should research the issue, he said. But when they do, he advised that they make sure the websites are reliable. With all due respect to radio talk show hosts, that is not a good place to get information from, Browning said. Hugh Townsend, who was attending the Republican clubs meeting, said uniform standards are a good idea, particularly in a mobile society. The military has already demonstrated that. Theyve already proven that this system works, migrating children around and getting the same outcome of a well-educated, thinking student, Townsend said. Alison Crumbley, a Pasco County school board member, said she knows from personal experience about different standards used in different school districts. I moved from Chicago in the third grade. I came into third grade. I was put in the sixth-grade reading classes at the time, Crumbley said. The disparity in educational opportunities was one of the things that motivated her to seek a seat on the school board, Crumbley said. In January, the county marked 135 trees in the medians, either with a ribbon or an orange X. The 44 trees with a ribbon would be saved; the 91 with an orange X would be cut down. Lutz resident Donald Hassinger spotted the markings on the trees and began making inquiries. When he learned the trees with the X would be destroyed, he began rallying Lutz residents to mobilize on the issue. After fielding protests from residents, the county put the brakes on the planned tree removals and called a community meeting. The county had planned to cut down 64 crape myrtles, 14 wax myrtles, seven live oaks, three Shumard oaks and three red maples.County officials told the crowd packed into the Lutz Community Center in January that it needed to remove the trees because the county didnt have the money to maintain the medians. They had planned to turn the medians over to the Florida Department of Transportation, which has jurisdiction over U.S. 41.The DOT, however, told the county it had to remove the designated trees first. Trees were selected for removal based on the trees type and condition. Legg, who was present at the meeting, told the crowd he was confident a different solution could be found. He connected with Mike White, founder and president of the Lutz Citizens Coalition, who called around and found out how much the maintenance would cost. Walmart has stepped forward to cover two years of maintenance costs, Legg said. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful will administer the funds for the work. This arrangement solves the immediate problem, Legg said. I think its a very good solution, White said. Walmart stepped up to the plate. Now, I think its time for the community to show its appreciation, by patronizing their store, by including them in the community. Solving the maintenance problem is more difficult than it might seem at first blush, Legg said. It appeared that there was a very simplistic solution, Legg said. However, its not possible to merely get volunteers to do the work. The trees are on islands in the middle of a busy highway. Anyone doing maintenance on the trees must carry a certain level of insurance, Legg said. Legg said hes happier with this shortterm solution than with what could have happened. I thought it was a bone-headed move to cut down the trees, Legg said. The county may have been the one with the chainsaws, but it wasnt the countys idea to take down the trees, Legg said. That was the DOTs call. Walmart presented the $5,000 check during a ceremony on Sept. 30 at its 1575 Land O Lakes Blvd. location in Lutz. A release from Leggs office said the solution came as a result of a partnership between Walmart, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Hillsborough County, multiple Lutz community civic associations, Legg, and Corcoran & Johnston Government Relations.TREES, from page 1 BROWNING, from page 1 Follow us on facebook www.facebook.com/thelakerlutznews

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Often people are surprised to learn that over a lifetime, close to 50 percent of Americans face a mental health issue that would benefit from professional treatment. Unfortunately, for different reasons, many do not seek or receive the help they need. That statistic from the Center for Disease Control is cited by Jim Harris, chief executive officer of North Tampa Behavioral Health, a new psychiatric hospital opening this week in Wesley Chapel. Harris has worked in the mental health care field for 20 years, first as a clinical social worker and then in hospital management. He has been in Wesley Chapel since June making sure all details are in place to welcome patients and family to a nurturing, warm environment that he and his staff are committed to establishing at their new hospital. We really have a rare opportunity to build a hospital from the ground up, said Harris. Were creating an open, welcoming, noninstitutional environment that will help counter the stigma that often keeps people from seeking or following through with their treatment. North Tampa Behavioral Health is located just east of The Shops of Wiregrass on State Road 56 on 16 acres of wetlands and forest with beautiful views and abundant wildlife and birds. This setting is conducive to treatment and helping patients get better, said Harris. There is a lot of peace and quiet with no urban distractions. The hospitals foremost philosophy is to treat patients and their families with dignity and respect. We consider each patients unique individual needs during their time with us, said Harris. The hospital is opening with a staff of 70 that will grow to as many as 200 or more as it treats more patients in its 75-bed facility. It employs a variety of positions required to run a hospital, including doctors, nurses, case managers, techs, cooks, housekeepers and maintenance workers. North Tampa Behavioral Health will open one unit at a time as its census grows, offering treatment for adults and seniors with mental health and substance abuse concerns. Harris said he expects many patients to have a dual diagnosis. Often times psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, post-traumatic stress or psychosis can be co-occurring with a substance abuse problem. The hospital also offers a unique half-day, partial-hospitalization program that provides more intense services than traditional outpatient services. Other levels of care include an intensive outpatient program and a mobile assessment team. Eventually, law enforcement and mental health professionals will be able to place people needing emergency psychiatric care under the Baker and Marchman legislation to prevent someone from hurting themselves or others. Supporting its evidence-based treatment programs, North Tampa Behavioral Health offers many physical activities for its patients with amenities including a full gym, outdoor basketball court, walking path, spacious community rooms, caf and quiet rooms. Our goal is to bring together mental and physical health approaches to psychiatric therapies founded on the most current principles of patient safety, said Harris.Natural Setting Conducive To Patient Care At New Psychiatric Hospital in Wesley Chapel 813-333-000029910 State Road 56 Wesley Chapel, FL 33543 www.NorthTampaBehavioralHealth.com Jim Harris The smallest thing can make the biggest difference.

And they have. Football, baseball, softball, basketball, lacrosse, cheerleading and soccer draw thousands of participants each year. The park has become a magnet for local youth sports, and thats considered a good thing.Only now it might be too much of a good thing. Overcrowding is creating a difficult situation for concurrent activities, but a few fields also need repair, and that means even less space for everyone. As a result, some participants have been pushed out of the area altogether until the repair work is done: Eight soccer teams and 120 players now have their practices and games at the Samuel W. Pasco Recreation Complex in Zephyrhills. That extra 20-mile round trip can be a challenge to participating families, despite the fact that they paid a convenience fee to park at the Wesley Chapel Park. Jeff Olsen, a soccer coach whose daughter now plays in Zephyrhills, says the situation is anything but convenient. It places a burden on the families. Theres lost time as a family, theres lost time for homework, he said. Theres an extra rush on the evening schedule and extra costs for gas. So theres a burden there. The teams started their season on Aug. 1 and estimated theyd be displaced for about six weeks. But more than two months later, theres still no timetable for return. Aside from the inconvenience, playing outside Wesley Chapel can impact the areas reputation regarding youth soccer. Gil Gonzalez, a coach who also leads public relations efforts for the Wesley Chapel Soccer Club, says local parents want their children to play locally. If their first taste of local youth sports is a lot of inconvenience, it affects their impression of the organization. I think the biggest impact, in my opinion, is for newer parents, who dont have the background in terms of understanding that this is really a temporary issue, he said. But if we have new parents and new players, I think it creates a negative experience for them. If word of mouth is negative as a result of those experiences, families might start considering competing programs for their children. If not resolved, those issues could affect recruiting and the programs ability to grow. The displaced teams arent the only ones dealing with issues related to overcrowding, Gonzalez said. The players and teams who are still at the park have to contend with their own problems. Scheduling can be a challenge, with some teams dealing with later practices. The games themselves also are affected: Gonzalez said that matches are so close together that parents cheering at one game might have to duck incoming soccer balls from a nearby contest. Throw in some long walks due to crowded parking lots, and its a situation everyone hopes is resolved quickly. Unfortunately, predicting how and when the county will provide a satisfactory resolution is a bit more difficult. Interest and participation in youth sports has increased since the park opened, while related budgets have decreased. According to the Wesley Chapel Soccer Club, the county has decreased park and recreational spending by more than 28 percent since 2006. Still, Gonzalez whose daughter also now practices in Zephyrhills is hopeful that there will be both short-term solutions (resodded fields at Wesley Chapel District Park) and long-term solutions (more space) on the horizon, whenever that may be. I think what will happen is there will be continued discussions for the county to acquire additional property near the district park to expand it as well, he said. If theres a silver lining, it might be that player interest in soccer hasnt really waned as a result of the extra challenges. Olsen said that even those who have to play in Zephyrhills still enjoy the sport and the competition. Do they mind? They like to play, Olsen said. But nobody wants to take a 30-minute drive out there when the rains start coming down, then take a 30-minute drive home. Repair work at Wesley Chapel District Park has gone on longer than expected, with the commute to Zephyrhills creating concerns about attracting new players to the various recreational sports there.

By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Pasco Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning is standing by the Common Core State Standards, despite a recent decision by Gov. Rick Scott to put the kibosh on the state’s participation in a consortia developing assessments for those standards. Scott sent a letter to federal Education Secretary Arne Duncan on Sept. 23 telling him that he would ask the State Board of Education to end Florida’s fiscal relationship with the Partnership for Assessment Readiness for College and Careers. Scott said the move was intended to protect the state from federal intrusion into education policy, and a parade of lawmakers and educators applauded Scott’s action. Browning did not. “It’s all political,” Browning said. “He’s getting a lot of pressure and he’s running for re-election.” Browning added that Scott is trying to make sure that he has the support of the tea party, a populist movement within the Republican party that opposes the Washington political establishment. Scott was backed by the tea party when he won the governor’s office in 2010. Florida needs a different way to measure its students’ progress, Browning said. “Florida cannot afford to go back to another homegrown assessment,” Browning said.

Browning stands by Common Core “What our current standards really encourage our kids to do is memorize and regurgitate. Common Core is calling for kids to think critically.” —Kurt Browning By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com The Suncoast Arts Fest — an event that draws more than 100,000 art lovers to The Shops at Wiregrass each year — has put out a call for artists. Artists who want to be considered for the show must apply by Nov. 16.The art show is scheduled for Jan. 18, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Jan. 19 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It is timed to coincide with the peak of tourist season at a venue that offers easy access to art lovers throughout Tampa Bay. The Shops at Wiregrass is near the intersection of Bruce B. Downs Boulevard and State Road 56.A show earlier this year attracted the fine arts and fine crafts of 120 artists in a juried event.Artists taking part in the January event can win a number of awards, including best of show, which is accompanied by a $2,000 prize; an award of excellence, which includes a $1,000 prize; two awards of distinction, with a prize of $500 each; and, four awards of merit, with a prize of $250 each.Works offered for sale will include ceramics, leather, printmaking, photography, glass, jewelry, metal, sculpture, clay, graphics and mixed media. Artists will receive acceptance invitations via email during the week of Dec. 9. In addition to the art show, weekend festivities include a one-mile fun run and pancake breakfast on Jan. 19. The Suncoast Arts Fest promotes cultural awareness in Pasco County. It also benefits Arts for Kids, a supplemental arts education funding program for area schools. That program benefits through a grant created by the nonprofit organization, Fine Arts of Suncoast Inc. Proceeds from this show and other related arts fest activities supplement arts education funding in Pasco County’s public, private and charter schools.

The trees are now safe, at least for a couple of years. (File photo)Trees in Lutz get temporary reprieve from chainsawsBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Trees in medians on U.S. 41 in Lutz are being spared the ax – at least for now. Walmart has agreed to donate $5,000 to pay for maintaining the trees, which should cover the cost for about two years, said State Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz. The company said it would revisit the matter then, Legg said. Meanwhile, that provides time to seek other potential contributors to help cover the cost. Hillsborough County should be credited for its cooperation, Legg said, which helped to ensure the trees were not cut down. See BROWNING, page14 See TREES, page14

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Sister Stroll brings community together to fight cancerBy B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com They began streaming in at least an hour before the stroll started. Most were wearing pink shirts. There were men and women, senior citizens and children. They all came out for a cause. The eighth annual Sister Stroll at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills on the evening of Sept. 26 was a tribute to those who have lost their lives, or are battling against breast cancer. Many in the crowd had lost a sister or a mother or a friend to cancer. Some had faced the disease and survived. “This is a very special event,” Don Welch, chief operating officer of Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, told the crowd. “It’s a very special event for me because my mom passed away from breast cancer.” Mary Walters was in the crowd listening to Welch speak. She came to the stroll with her sister, Kathleen Coelho.“This is an event I try to support every year for all of the women who have breast cancer, and friends who have had breast cancer,” said Walters, who lives in Dade City.Coelho, who also lives in Dade City, volunteers at the Simpson Breast Health Center at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Her personal experiences at the breast health center persuaded her to get involved. “I was being treated there and I liked the people,” Coelho said. “They recently opened a gift shop, and I think it’s nice that people don’t have to travel long distances to get what they need.” A huge contingent of Southport Springs residents turned out for the event. “We are big fundraisers for the Simpson Breast Health Center,” Carla Evans said. Southport Springs supports the center because it believes it is a good cause, said Barbara Debus, another resident there. “We know where the money is going,” she said. Southport Springs has raised so much money for the center it has a mammogram and a bone density room in the center named in the community’s honor. This year, Southport Springs donated a quilt one of its residents made that will be hung in one of their rooms at the breast center. The community also donated $3,070 for the breast center — raised from a dance, a bra parade, a pet parade, chance drawings on baskets and other events. Those attending Sister Stroll, which was on the hospital grounds, had a chance to sign up to become members of the Pink Army, a statewide initiative developed by Florida Hospital to encourage the early detection and prevention of breast cancer. The campaign enlists new members as Pink Army soldiers. They can rise through the ranks and earn rewards by recruiting other soldiers, attending educational events, scheduling a mammogram or completing other missions. Dawn Seqiueira, also of Southport Springs, said she is a major in the Pink Army. She’s recruited 41 soldiers. It’s hard to find new recruits there, she said, because so many people already belong. “We have a lot of (breast cancer) survivors in our community,” she said. Sister Stroll began as a grassroots event to give the community a chance to learn more about preventing breast cancer, to show their support for people fighting breast cancer, and to remember those who have been lost, said Michelle OswaldBianchet, director of marketing for Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Carolyn Sentelik, executive director of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Foundation, said the event gives people a chance to show their support in the battle against breast cancer. It also gives the foundation a chance to thank the community for supporting its efforts. “This community is overwhelmingly generous when it comes to breast cancer. It’s a chance for us to say thank you,” Sentelik said. Men, women and children turned out to the eighth annual Sister Stroll at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills to show their support in the battle against breast cancer. (Photos by B.C.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 2, 2013 4 By Diane Kortus Publisher The fall blitz of annual dinners sponsored by local business organizations is just about over. The chambers in Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills recently hosted their membership galas, and Dade City’s takes place in a few weeks. There was the massive annual banquet in early September for the Pasco Economic Development Council that was attended by more than 600 people to honor Industry of The Year award winners. Even the Central Pasco Chamber in Land O’ Lakes, which has its annual dinner in July, didn’t escape the fall hoopla. Its Dancing With Our Stars event brought together close to 500 members and friends to cheer on its volunteer dancers and raise money for the chamber. My staff and I attend these events to support these organizations and to share in the joy of recognizing dedicated business people in our communities. These civic-minded leaders give their time, talent and money to help other members grow their businesses through networking, and by sharing their knowledge and experiences. The finale of these dinners is always recognition of the hardest working and most successful members. The programs are heavy on awards, with dozens of individuals and business receiving accolades from their peers for their leadership and willingness to serve on the board and numerous committees. When you’re in the audience waiting for one of these dinners to be over so you can get home, one tends to get a bit impatient, as one award seems to roll into the next. When that happens, however, it’s a good time to close your eyes and think back to a time when you were personally recognized and remember how good it felt. A teacher, coach, employer or organization has recognized most of us at least once in our lives. No matter how insignificant that award may seem today, you still remember how proud you felt when your name was called and you walked to the front of the group to get your plaque and perhaps your photo taken. I find it interesting that no matter our age, we’re never too old to be recognized for a job well done. Hearing your name ring out above the buzz of the crowd is like being a violin virtuoso. You’re suddenly playing the part that everyone is tuned in to. And so I give accolades to our many chambers, the EDC, the Rotary and Lions’ clubs and all the other organizations that make it a priority to recognize their members. Recognition is motivational to the recipient and perhaps more importantly, inspirational to those applauding. And some of those clapping will undoubtedly be moved to step it up a notch and work a bit harder so it will be their name that rings out at next year’s banquet.Recognition motivates and inspires, no matter the age PUBLISHER’S COLUMN The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report All Smiles Tampa Bay were all smiles when it came to awards at this year’s Dancing with our Stars competition. The company won overall star at the competition, hosted by the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 21, as well as best costume, most original and most entertaining honors. Taking part in that winning effort for All Smiles were Dr. Joseph Grimaudo, Nicole Eppers and Sonia Salazer. Robert and Edda Gilbert from Mind Your Business Now won most-committed dancers, while Tiffany Yip from Get a Group Total Fitness sold the most tickets for the fundraising event. David Gainer of DigitalBrainz and Ann Poonkasem of AnnPonline.com were tied for most congenial, while Dr. John and Melissa Mertz of Mertz Orthodontics were selected as the people’s choice.The best dance award went to Elisabeth Shaner-Flach with Scott Parlett from BallywhoSocial, while Kelly Mothershead of A Focus on Fitness was named a shining star. The event was put together with a team of volunteers as well as stage manager Shelly Acevedo of Broadway Dancesations, and Meredyth Censullo, who served as the mistress of ceremonies. The dance professionals who helped choreograph and teach the dancers included Wendy LaRosa, Terri Dusek, Gina Marchica, Grace Badillo, Roberto Lira, Tamesis Cruz, Leo Florin, Stacey Enyart, Nicole John, Acevedo, Hector Quiles, Frank Sliwa, and Richard and Laurie Collett.

The Pasco Sheriff’s Office is looking for a local child to star in a public service announcement it’s creating for broadcast on local television channels. The video theme will be on car burglary prevention, highlighting the fact that it’s so easy, even a child can do it — by simply locking a vehicle’s doors. The search will take place through the sheriff’s office Facebook page for parents of kids ages 4 through 7. All they have to do is create a 30-second video of their child doing anything that demonstrates his or her energy or personality. The sheriff’s office will then select the five top videos, which Facebook visitors can then vote on by liking it. Whoever gets the most votes will become the star of the video, and meet Sheriff Chris Nocco. Videos are being accepted through Oct. 4, and can only be submitted via private message to the sheriff’s Facebook page, located at Facebook.com/pascosheriff. Any videos posted to the public wall will not be eligible.Finalists will be posted the week of Oct. 7, with the winning video selected Oct. 21. The commercial itself will be shot either by the end of October or early November.More than 66 percent of auto burglaries in Pasco County in 2012 involved unlocked cars, according to a news release. For more information on the search and overall campaign, call the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office at (727) 844-7759, or visit the office’s social media page at Facebook.com/pascosheriff.

By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Lutz First Friday — a food truck rally sponsored by the Lutz Citizens Coalition — was supposed to make its debut on Oct. 4 at Lutz Preparatory School. However, it’s been indefinitely postponed. In an email sent out to Lutz Citizens Coalition members, group president Mike White said the group thought they had reached an agreement with the school and began putting the word out about the rally. Those plans were dropped, however, after the coalition had a second meeting at the school and officials there appeared to be backing out, White said. Yet Diane Farmer, principal at Lutz Preparatory, said the school still wants to work with the coalition on hosting food truck rallies there. “We’re still in negotiations,” Farmer said. “We’re still trying to work out the details for it. We want to do it.” She said there was a problem with logistics, and the school could not meet the coalition’s desired schedule. While the monthly truck rally has been put on hold, people who enjoy a flea market, or who want to do their part to help maintain a historic building, will have their chance to do both on Oct. 5 at the Old Lutz School Building Flea Market. It runs from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m. The event raises money for the upkeep of the Old Lutz School, a historic building that local residents fought to preserve when the state was widening U.S. 41. The school itself is at 18819 N. U.S. 41, which is at the corner of Fourth Avenue SE and U.S. 41. Less than a month later, on Nov. 2, the community is having another in a series of events scheduled this year to celebrate the Lutz Centennial. At the Lutz Centennial Cars & Chili event, chili aficionados and classic car buffs will be able to compete for bragging rights. Car buffs and motorcycle enthusiasts are encouraged to take part in the show, which will feature classic cars, exotic cars and motorcycles. The chili cook-off will have two categories: Families and individuals will compete in one, and clubs and organizations will square off in the other. The deadline for registration to compete in the cook-off is 5 p.m. on Oct. 25, and there is a $25 team entry fee. Chili cook-off teams can consist of one chef and two assistants. The chili must be cooked on-site. Since there’s no electricity, teams must provide their own LP-gas cooking appliance. They must also supply their own ingredients and cooking utensils. Patrons will be able to purchase official centennial chili cups for $5 each, which they can carry around from team to team to sample different kinds of chili. The tastings will begin at noon and will end when the chili runs out, or at 2 p.m. The celebration will be on the grounds between the old train depot and the Lutz Community Center, between U.S. 41 and the Lutz Branch Library.

LUTZ ACE HARDWARE HONOREDLutz Ace Hardware, 18469 U.S. 41 in Lutz,was one of five hardware retailers honored with Beacon Awards during an awards banquet last month in Marco Island. The Lutz store was honored as the best new store less than 25,000 square feet. The Beacon Awards are a national industry awards program developed by The Hardware Connection magazine and The Hardware Conference. It honors what it deems to be the best hardware and home improvement retailers while encouraging a new generation of retailers to make their mark. Scott and Todd Andrews decided to diversify their pool supply business by opening an Ace Hardware store in January 2012. The store features 11,900 square feet of retail selling space, and has shown strong sales from the beginning, according to a release. It’s helped by a strong blend of in-store promotions, local advertising and social media marketing. The store’s biggest niche is the 1,500square-foot ELLA Boutique, a gift shop operated by the wives of the brothers, Tina and Andrea Andrews. The Andrews also have a featured spot for their company, Sunshine Pool Service and Repair, with a special service counter and re-tail space. “When you open a new store, you don’t really expect to win a national honor like this, so we’re just thrilled about this award,” Scott Andrews said in a release. By Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com When John Hagen made his quarterly report to Pasco County Commissioners earlier this year, he wasn’t sure 2013 would end on an upswing for new jobs created in the county. But the fiscal year ended Monday, and Hagen — the president and chief executive of the Pasco Economic Development Council — has good news: More than 600 high-wage jobs have been created this year, well beyond any expectations. And the growth was capped by Retail Process Engineering LLC moving its operations from Tampa to the Offices of Devonwood off State Road 54 in Land O’ Lakes, expected to bring 16 new jobs to the county with an average salary of $105,000. “Things are definitely looking up,” Hagen said. “We still have some challenges, but we do feel the momentum is here as activity’s been picking up. It bodes well for the upcoming year.” A company related to RPE purchased the 4,100-square-foot location at 20537 Amberfield Drive in April for $500,000, according to property records. The company had looked at locations in Tampa and Pinellas County as well, but realized that Pasco was a good fit, said executive vice president Rob Henneke. It didn’t hurt that he and many other people who work at RPE already lived in Pasco County. “Certainly drive time made a difference for a number of us, as well as certain taxes and some of the incentives that Pasco County was offering,” Henneke said. “It’s certainly a more relaxed atmosphere here compared to Tampa, and we’re still what I consider to be very close to the airport, which is very important to us and our clients.” RPE was founded in 1999 and specializes in strategic, functional and technical consulting for retail merchandising and supply chain services, primarily when it comes to information technology. The new jobs — which could earn RPE a cash incentive of up to $5,000 per new job payable over four years — would be for those who have at least 15 years of retail experience willing to take on a consultant role for the company, Henneke said.RPE is the fourth technology company to move operations to Pasco County this past year. It joined financial services technology firm InvestCloud, security camera technology company Communication Concepts Inc., and software developer MB2x. And there’s still room for more, Hagen said. A recent report by the EDC showed of the 7.5 million square feet of existing office space in the county, 15 percent of it — or 1.1 million square feet — is still available. That’s enough to fit six Walmart Supercenters. “All you have to do is stand on the corner of State Road 56 and Interstate 75, or even State Road 54 and the Suncoast Parkway, and watch all the traffic every morning going south,” Hagen said. “Having commuted myself, I just realized what a drag it is. So I know there are a lot of other people out there who are trying to one way or another bring their business closer to where they live.” RPE services clients around the country and into Canada as well in places like Toronto and Newfoundland. “We have a very good reputation out there in the marketplace,” Henneke said. “As we are able to get the message across of who we are, we’re seeing more and more clients choosing to use our services. And with that, we’ll just keep expanding.”RPE comes to Pasco, bringing high-tech jobs with it Retail Process Engineering moved into its new location at Devonwood off State Road 54 over the weekend. The company bought the space in April, and plans to add 16 high-wage jobs to the area.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The future of health care in America continues to be debated in Washington, D.C. But in the meantime, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services says Florida consumers will see increased competition in its health insurance marketplace. According to the report, Florida consumers will be able to choose from an average of 102 health plans in the marketplace. Nationally, the vast majority of consumers will have a choice of at least two different health insurance company, sometimes more. Premiums nationwide will also be around 16 percent lower than originally expected — with about 95 percent of eligible uninsured living in states with lower than expected premiums — before taking into account financial assistance, according to HHS. “We are excited to see that rates in the Florida marketplace are even lower than originally projected,” said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, in a release. “In the past, consumers were too often denied or pricedout of quality health insurance options, but thanks to the Affordable Care Act, consumers will be able to choose from a number of new coverage options that is affordable.” However, not everyone agrees that Florida will indeed see lower premiums through the health care reform. U.S. Rep Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, has said in the past that the reform supported by President Obama “does not actually solve our health care problems, will cost trillions of taxpayer dollars without reducing the cost of health care, and adds uncertainty to a struggling economy.” U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, agrees, disputing the cost savings the federal government has announced. In an opinion piece he published in July, Ross cited a study from the Health Research & Educational Trust that showed premiums rose an average of nearly $2,400 since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act between the various types of coverage. Although Congress and the President were debating the federal budget, which includes health care reform funding, at press time, open enrollment for the new plan was expected to start Oct. 1, and run through March. Coverage is expected to begin as early as Jan. 1. The HHS report found that the average premium for the lowest-cost plan ranges from $257 and $304, depending on the type of plan selected. The average premium for the second lowest-cost plan in the more common categories is 16 percent below projections, based off of Congressional Budget Office estimates. About 95 percent of uninsured people eligible for the marketplace live in a state where their average premium is lower than projects, according to HHS. In the greater Tampa Bay market, a 27year-old who makes $25,000 annually will pay an average of $113 per month for the lowest-cost plan, and $145 per month for the second-lowest plan in the next tier, after tax credits. For a family of four with an income of $50,000, the lowest-cost plan would cost $165 per month. That is higher than what the same people would pay statewide on average. For Florida, a 27-year-old would pay $96 and $145 respectively, while a family of four would pay $104 per month.

(Photo by Michael Hinman) The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Last month, hundreds of motorcycle riders gathered in Land O’ Lakes to visit emergency first responders in the region, thanking them for their service. Now, Pasco County Tax Collector Mike Fasano is highlighting specialty license plates that can benefit groups associated with the bikers. As part of a regular campaign to highlight specialty tags that help charitable organizations in both the community and the state, Fasano’s office is featuring the “Bikers Care” plate that is available for registered motorcycles. The tag comes with an annual donation of $20, and those proceeds benefit six organizations through the Bikers Care Alliance. They include the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, Prevent Blindness Florida, Blind Services Foundation of Florida, Foundation for Vocational Rehabilitation, Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living, and The Able Trust. “Since the ‘Bikers Care’ tag is the only specialty plate for motorcycles, we think kicking things off with the ‘Bikers Care’ tag is a great start,” said Martina Brawer, executive director of the Florida Association of Centers for Independent Living, in a release. “It would be nice to see the majority of bikers displaying the tag on their motorcycles,” said Thom DeLilla, program administrator for the Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Program, in a release. The promotion runs through October, and is available for purchase in four locations in Pasco County: Land O’ Lakes, Dade City, New Port Richey and Gulf Harbors. The plates are available at the tax collector’s offices in Hillsborough County as well. The Land O’ Lakes center is located at 4111 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. in Land O’ Lakes. The Dade City office is located at 14236 Sixth St., Room 100, in Dade City. Proceeds for the ‘Bikers Care’ specialty tags benefit several organizations through the Bikers Care Alliance.

Browning made it clear that he stands behind the Common Core State Standards. “We need to be able to have a set of standards that engages kids, that gets them to think and not only to get them to give the right answer, but how they came up with that answer,” Browning said. “That, in large part, is what Common Core is.” There’s a perception that Common Core is being driven by the federal government, Browning said. But that isn’t true. The National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers led the effort to develop standards, he said. There are three basic components to Common Core State Standards, Browning said. Those components are the standards themselves, the assessments to measure student performance and the data collection. Critics are lumping all three of those elements together. “The standards are the standards,” the superintendent said. There’s also a misconception about what the standards are, he said. The standards are not curriculum. Curriculum is developed and delivered at the local level. The standards provide the foundation for the curriculum and establish what students need to learn. They do not prescribe how students should be taught, Browning said. A new set of tests will be used to measure student performance. Regardless of what test is used, there will need to be some sort of assessment.Common Core State Standards are intended to raise the bar for students and prepare them to compete in a global economy.“Gov. Bush just made a comment this week that summed up exactly the way I feel about Common Core,” Browning said, adding he echoed those statements in a letter he sent to Scott. “Gov. Bush said, ‘If you’re ok with mediocrity, fine. I’m not,” Browning said. “What our current standards really encourage our kids to do is memorize and regurgitate. Common Core is calling for kids to think critically,” Browning said. Pasco County needs improvement. “Look at our FCAT scores. Look at our reading scores. Look at our math scores. Look at our science scores,” he said. “They’re abominable. They really are.” Pasco is ranked 34th out of 67 school districts, and that’s something that has to be improved, he said. “I am tired of the Pasco district playing second fiddle to other districts in the state,” Browning added. Teachers have a difficult job, he said. “We’re getting kids in school that don’t know their alphabet. They don’t know simple words. We’re having to get these kids up to grade level,” Browning said. About 450 third-graders each year are held back in Pasco County because they cannot read at grade level. Some of those students are held back twice, Browning said. “When a third-grader is retained two times, you can pretty much write them off,” he said. And while the district doesn’t actually write them off, those children face an uphill battle. “They’re older, they see their peers moving forward. They begin to think that they’re stupid, they can’t learn,” Browning said. “They’re taller than other third-graders. They don’t fit.” Common Core State Standards are not a new idea, Browning said. “This has been going on for like six years,” he said. “There were public hearings. There was time for input. There was all this time for public involvement.” People who want to learn more about Common Core should research the issue, he said. But when they do, he advised that they make sure the websites are reliable. “With all due respect to radio talk show hosts, that is not a good place to get information from,” Browning said. Hugh Townsend, who was attending the Republican club’s meeting, said uniform standards are a good idea, particularly in a mobile society. The military has already demonstrated that. “They’ve already proven that this system works, migrating children around and getting the same outcome of a well-educated, thinking student,” Townsend said. Alison Crumbley, a Pasco County school board member, said she knows from personal experience about different standards used in different school districts. “I moved from Chicago in the third grade. I came into third grade. I was put in the sixth-grade reading classes at the time,” Crumbley said. The disparity in educational opportunities was one of the things that motivated her to seek a seat on the school board, Crumbley said. In January, the county marked 135 trees in the medians, either with a ribbon or an orange ‘X.’ The 44 trees with a ribbon would be saved; the 91 with an orange ‘X’ would be cut down. Lutz resident Donald Hassinger spotted the markings on the trees and began making inquiries. When he learned the trees with the ‘X’ would be destroyed, he began rallying Lutz residents to mobilize on the issue. After fielding protests from residents, the county put the brakes on the planned tree removals and called a community meeting. The county had planned to cut down 64 crape myrtles, 14 wax myrtles, seven live oaks, three Shumard oaks and three red maples.County officials told the crowd packed into the Lutz Community Center in January that it needed to remove the trees because the county didn’t have the money to maintain the medians. They had planned to turn the medians over to the Florida Department of Transportation, which has jurisdiction over U.S. 41.The DOT, however, told the county it had to remove the designated trees first. Trees were selected for removal based on the tree’s type and condition. Legg, who was present at the meeting, told the crowd he was confident a different solution could be found. He connected with Mike White, founder and president of the Lutz Citizens Coalition, who called around and found out how much the maintenance would cost. Walmart has stepped forward to cover two years of maintenance costs, Legg said. Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful will administer the funds for the work. This arrangement solves the immediate problem, Legg said. “I think it’s a very good solution,” White said. “Walmart stepped up to the plate. Now, I think it’s time for the community to show its appreciation, by patronizing their store, by including them in the community.” Solving the maintenance problem is more difficult than it might seem at first blush, Legg said. “It appeared that there was a very simplistic solution,” Legg said. However, it’s not possible to merely get volunteers to do the work. The trees are on islands in the middle of a busy highway. Anyone doing maintenance on the trees must carry a certain level of insurance, Legg said. Legg said he’s happier with this shortterm solution than with what could have happened. “I thought it was a bone-headed move to cut down the trees,” Legg said. The county may have been the one with the chainsaws, but it wasn’t the county’s idea to take down the trees, Legg said. That was the DOT’s call. Walmart presented the $5,000 check during a ceremony on Sept. 30 at its 1575 Land O’ Lakes Blvd. location in Lutz. A release from Legg’s office said the solution came as a result of a partnership between Walmart, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Hillsborough County, multiple Lutz community civic associations, Legg, and Corcoran & Johnston Government Relations.TREES, from page 1 BROWNING, from page 1 Follow us on facebook www.facebook.com/thelakerlutznews

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Often people are surprised to learn that over a lifetime, close to 50 percent of Americans face a mental health issue that would benefit from professional treatment. Unfortunately, for different reasons, many do not seek or receive the help they need. That statistic from the Center for Disease Control is cited by Jim Harris, chief executive officer of North Tampa Behavioral Health, a new psychiatric hospital opening this week in Wesley Chapel. Harris has worked in the mental health care field for 20 years, first as a clinical social worker and then in hospital management. He has been in Wesley Chapel since June making sure all details are in place to welcome patients and family to a nurturing, warm environment that he and his staff are committed to establishing at their new hospital. We really have a rare opportunity to build a hospital from the ground up,Ž said Harris. Were creating an open, welcoming, noninstitutional environment that will help counter the stigma that often keeps people from seeking or following through with their treatment.Ž North Tampa Behavioral Health is located just east of The Shops of Wiregrass on State Road 56 on 16 acres of wetlands and forest with beautiful views and abundant wildlife and birds. This setting is conducive to treatment and helping patients get better,Ž said Harris. There is a lot of peace and quiet with no urban distractions.Ž The hospitals foremost philosophy is to treat patients and their families with dignity and respect. We consider each patients unique individual needs during their time with us,Ž said Harris. The hospital is opening with a staff of 70 that will grow to as many as 200 or more as it treats more patients in its 75-bed facility. It employs a variety of positions required to run a hospital, including doctors, nurses, case managers, techs, cooks, housekeepers and maintenance workers. North Tampa Behavioral Health will open one unit at a time as its census grows, offering treatment for adults and seniors with mental health and substance abuse concerns. Harris said he expects many patients to have a dual diagnosis. Often times psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, bipolar, post-traumatic stress or psychosis can be co-occurring with a substance abuse problem. The hospital also offers a unique half-day, partial-hospitalization program that provides more intense services than traditional outpatient services. Other levels of care include an intensive outpatient program and a mobile assessment team. Eventually, law enforcement and mental health professionals will be able to place people needing emergency psychiatric care under the Baker and Marchman legislation to prevent someone from hurting themselves or others. Supporting its evidence-based treatment programs, North Tampa Behavioral Health offers many physical activities for its patients with amenities including a full gym, outdoor basketball court, walking path, spacious community rooms, caf and quiet rooms. Our goal is to bring together mental and physical health approaches to psychiatric therapies founded on the most current principles of patient safety,Ž said Harris.Natural Setting Conducive To Patient Care At New Psychiatric Hospital in Wesley Chapel 813-333-0000 29910 State Road 56 Wesley Chapel, FL 33543 www.NorthTampaBehavioralHealth.com Jim Harris The smallest thing can make the biggest difference.

And they have. Football, baseball, softball, basketball, lacrosse, cheerleading and soccer draw thousands of participants each year. The park has become a magnet for local youth sports, and that’s considered a good thing.Only now it might be too much of a good thing. Overcrowding is creating a difficult situation for concurrent activities, but a few fields also need repair, and that means even less space for everyone. As a result, some participants have been pushed out of the area altogether until the repair work is done: Eight soccer teams and 120 players now have their practices and games at the Samuel W. Pasco Recreation Complex in Zephyrhills. That extra 20-mile round trip can be a challenge to participating families, despite the fact that they paid a convenience fee to park at the Wesley Chapel Park. Jeff Olsen, a soccer coach whose daughter now plays in Zephyrhills, says the situation is anything but convenient. “It places a burden on the families. There’s lost time as a family, there’s lost time for homework,” he said. “There’s an extra rush on the evening schedule and extra costs for gas. So there’s a burden there.” The teams started their season on Aug. 1 and estimated they’d be displaced for about six weeks. But more than two months later, there’s still no timetable for return. Aside from the inconvenience, playing outside Wesley Chapel can impact the area’s reputation regarding youth soccer. Gil Gonzalez, a coach who also leads public relations efforts for the Wesley Chapel Soccer Club, says local parents want their children to play locally. If their first taste of local youth sports is a lot of inconvenience, it affects their impression of the organization. “I think the biggest impact, in my opinion, is for newer parents, who don’t have the background in terms of understanding that this is really a temporary issue,” he said. “But if we have new parents and new players, I think it creates a negative experience for them.” If word of mouth is negative as a result of those experiences, families might start considering competing programs for their children. If not resolved, those issues could affect recruiting and the program’s ability to grow. The displaced teams aren’t the only ones dealing with issues related to overcrowding, Gonzalez said. The players and teams who are still at the park have to contend with their own problems. Scheduling can be a challenge, with some teams dealing with later practices. The games themselves also are affected: Gonzalez said that matches are so close together that parents cheering at one game might have to duck incoming soccer balls from a nearby contest. Throw in some long walks due to crowded parking lots, and it’s a situation everyone hopes is resolved quickly. Unfortunately, predicting how and when the county will provide a satisfactory resolution is a bit more difficult. Interest and participation in youth sports has increased since the park opened, while related budgets have decreased. According to the Wesley Chapel Soccer Club, the county has decreased park and recreational spending by more than 28 percent since 2006. Still, Gonzalez — whose daughter also now practices in Zephyrhills — is hopeful that there will be both short-term solutions (resodded fields at Wesley Chapel District Park) and long-term solutions (more space) on the horizon, whenever that may be. “I think what will happen is there will be continued discussions for the county to acquire additional property near the district park to expand it as well,” he said. If there’s a silver lining, it might be that player interest in soccer hasn’t really waned as a result of the extra challenges. Olsen said that even those who have to play in Zephyrhills still enjoy the sport and the competition. “Do they mind? They like to play,” Olsen said. “But nobody wants to take a 30-minute drive out there when the rains start coming down, then take a 30-minute drive home.” Repair work at Wesley Chapel District Park has gone on longer than expected, with the commute to Zephyrhills creating concerns about attracting new players to the various recreational sports there.
