The more models you tour, the better opportunity to win!* US Hwy 41, Land O Lakes 6 miles north of SR 54 By Michael Hinman m h i n m an@cnewspu b s.co m Jerry Slutzky has had many auditions in his life. But none was more grueling than the one where he eventually found his future fiance. A lawyer and financial advisor who works right off State Road 54 on Sterlington Drive, Slutzky had maintained a profile on the website Match.com almost since the beginning of the site’s existence. Helen Techler, an audiologist out of Dunedin, posted a profile, and received 100 responses. She didn’t want to go through it, and instead tasked her daughter to pick out three. One of them was Slutzky. “I was nervous, but I would go into any meeting like this just looking for someone who enjoys doing things, and being someone who shares that interest,” Slutzky said. “With Helen, I got the rose.” But he did have a bit of an advantage. Slutzky has been auditioning his entire life, finding a home on the stage for many popular productions like “Music Man” and “Kiss Me Kate.” Slutzky was born into a family of Chicago lawyers, and would become one himself. But there was something about the stage that always fascinated him — and the theater bug was something he could never cure. So much that even today, with a busy work schedule and a full personal life because of Helen, he makes the time to appear on stage, like the starring role in the upcoming production of “La Cage aux Folles” in Largo. “In high school, I played trombone, and our orchestra always played for the spring musical,” Slutzky said. “I would be in the pit orchestra, but it always looked like more fun to be on stage than in the pit.” By Michael Hinman m h i n m an@cnewspu b s.co m The deadline is here for groups wanting to convince the Florida Department of Transportation to part with valuable road rights of way in Pasco County’s State Road 54/56 corridor. The FDOT asked for the proposals after it received an unsolicited request to lease the rights of way to build a 33-mile elevated toll road that could possibly shorten the trip between Zephyrhills and New Port Richey to less than 30 minutes. Gerald Stanley and International Infrastructure Partners LLC piqued the interest of state officials and the county as a whole with the request in June, and it’s created debate on not only if it’s good for the county, but if such a project is even feasible. Those answers are yes and yes, said John Hagen, president and chief executive of the Pasco Economic Development Council. The fact is, Pasco County is growing quickly, and even an expanded State Road 54 struggles to accommodate the traffic it receives. “You either have to build a bunch of new lanes and widen it out, or you have to International Infrastructure Partners have proposed building a 33-mile stretch of elevated road, like this one built over the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Tampa, to help move traffic from one side of the county to the other. But some observers warn that state officials should keep some hand in any project that gets approved. (Photo by Michael Hinman) Jerry Slutzky is a man who wears many hats. By day, he’s both an attorney and a financial advisor. By night, he’ll ditch the shirt and tie, and take on all kinds of characters on stage.

Manion b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m When word got out about Hillsborough County’s plans to cut down trees in the U.S. 41 medians in Lutz, it took howls of protests to silence the chain saws. Armed with promises from State Sen. Jon Legg, R-Lutz, and Hillsborough County officials to work with the community to find another solution, a meeting has been set for Oct. 29 to discuss what to do instead. The county had planned to cut down the trees because it wanted to return maintenance of the medians to the Florida Department of Transportation, which has jurisdiction over the highway. The state roads department would only take over if 91 of the 135 trees in the median were removed.The trees slated for destruction were 64 crape myrtle, 14 wax myrtle, seven live oaks, three Shumard oaks and three red maple.After a contentious community meeting on Jan. 24, however, the county put the brakes on that plan and agreed to return to the community for another meeting to discuss potential solutions. Recently, the trees won a two-year reprieve, when Walmart stepped forward with a $5,000 check to cover maintenance costs. That solution resulted from a partnership between Legg, Hillsborough County, the Lutz Citizens Coalition and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. Walmart said it would revisit the matter in two years, Legg said. Meanwhile, efforts can be made to broaden support. Now that a temporary solution has been found, another community meeting has been set for 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Lutz It took a partnership among several groups to work out a plan to prevent chain saws from taking down the trees in the medians along U.S. 41 in Lutz. Those who banded together to help protect the trees included, from left, Debra Evenson, executive director of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful; Chris Smith, assistant manager at the Walmart in Lutz; State Sen. John Legg; and Sam Calco, Louise Friar, and Mike White of the Lutz Citizens Coalition. (Photo courtesy of the Lutz Citizens Coalition) See TREES, page14

If you suffer with fibromyalgia or chronic pain, you know how demanding life can be. One fibromyalgia patient said it like thisƒ For people who take good health for granted, its hard to imagine a condition that makes simple tasks great tests of will and determination.Ž Contrary to what some people believe, youre 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 patients files, he found two-thirds of fibromyalgia patients started having symptoms after a traumatic event. Maybe your past doctors dont 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 cleanedƒeven simple tasks like cooking dinner becomes a chore. Prescription drugs are at best a band-aidŽ 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 OLakes. Over the past 35 years, Ive 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 listenƒreally listenƒ 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. € I will attempt to provide answers to all your most probing questions about your fibromyalgia or chronic pain syndrome.Call Today!

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com B y B .C. M anion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Three sessions have been scheduled to provide information about Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, a new satellite campus of Pasco-Hernando Community College that is scheduled to open in January. The Porter Campus, which is under construction at Mansfield Boulevard and State Road 56, is situated in an area poised to attract major employers and substantial residential growth in coming years. It is directly across State Road 54 from the site where Raymond James, an international financial services company, is expected to build an office park. The Porter Campus plans include six buildings. One of its structures will stand 122 feet tall, giving the campus the bragging rights of having Pasco County’s highest building.College officials anticipate attracting students from Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties. One day, the Porter Campus is expected to draw about the same number of students as the college’s West Campus, the main campus in New Port Richey.The information sessions are designed to provide a wealth of information to potential students. Three individual sessions are scheduled at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, in the second floor conference room of Wellness Plaza, 2600 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Each session will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and they will be on Nov. 4, Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. The sessions are intended for prospective, current and returning PHCC students who are interested in attending the new Porter Campus. College faculty and staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about the campus. The sessions will highlight student support services, student activities, programs and courses, prerequisite courses, testing, and admission requirements. Question-and-answer sessions are also planned, with a panel fielding the questions. The campus has encountered some construction delays because of weather, but unless a hurricane hits or another natural disaster occurs, college officials expect the campus to open on schedule in early January, said Lucy Miller, PHCC’s executive director of marketing and public relations. The Porter Campus is slated to offer a bachelor of applied science degree in supervision and management, and a bachelor of science in nursing degree beginning in the fall of 2014. It has received permission from the state and is now awaiting action on its application from the board of directors of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The board meets in Atlanta in December. The college has appointed Stan Giannet to serve as provost of the Porter Campus. Previously, he served in that same capacity at PHCC’s North Campus. Those wishing to attend the information sessions are encouraged to sign up now. Space for each session is limited to 50, for a total of 150. The deadline for registering for the free session is Nov. 1. To sign up, go to www.phcc.edu/rsvp. Call (727) 816-3398 for more information.

Manion)B y M ichael Hin m an mhinman@cnewspubs.com The International Economic Development Council had reason to recognize Pasco County earlier this month, bestowing its Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award to the Pasco Economic Development Council. PEDC had established an unconventional, collaborative entrepreneurship program called the Pasco Enterprise Network. From that, a new business incubator, as well as a microloan fund for small businesses, was formed. “These awards are meant to honor the organizations and individuals who are dedicated to making a positive change in their communities,” IEDC chair Paul Krutko said in a release. PEDC “uses creative solutions and inventive ideas, and offers other regions a wonderful example to learn and benefit from.” The enterprise network, recognized as the best of the best for communities with populations of between 200,000 and 500,000 people, is a one-stop resource for finding guidance and assistance for new businesses, according to the PEDC’s website. It’s a collaborative effort of nonprofit groups that provide consulting, counseling, education and technical assistance. “Basically, this was all put into place because there was a lack of capital for startup businesses and small businesses in the county,” said Krista Covey, the PEDC’s economic development manager. “We are about job creation and about supporting our local economy to help our businesses grow and be prosperous. The hindrance was capital.”The microloan program has put capital back on the market, especially during a time in the recent past when banks weren’t exactly lending to small businesses. With a pool of $320,000 thanks to investments from Saint Leo University, various banks and other groups, nine loans of up to $35,000 have been distributed so far with low interest rates and terms of no more than six years.The loans themselves have created 24 jobs in the county, Covey said, and this past summer, even had its first payoff when 301 Designs Inc. paid back its loan 17 months ahead of schedule. An online retail apparel company, 301 Designs started in the home of its founder, Gil Gauthier, and is now operating out of a 2,400-square-foot warehouse space. “If a company comes in and has a good business plan in place, that’s great,” Covey said. “Even if they don’t have a business plan, we automatically refer them to the small business development center and they’ll be walked through the whole process.”Even if a company qualifies for money under the microloan program, the help doesn’t stop there. “We offer ongoing technical assistance along with the other help they’ll receive from the PEDC,” Covey said. “We want them to be successful, and we want them to be a viable business.” Its incubator at the Dade City Business Center is the first of its kind in Pasco County. The SmartStart incubator is an overall partnership that includes the help of Dade City government officials, the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Saint Leo, the Florida Small Business Development Center, and the University of South Florida’s USF Connect. The IEDC has more than 4,000 members around the world, and its excellence in economic development awards recognizes the world’s best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and most influential leaders. This award is the sixth stateor nationallevel accolade in the last three years for the PEDC. “We know that a successful economy depends on small businesses and the support of entrepreneurship,” said PEDC chief executive John Hagen, in a release. “Working together as a support network, entrepreneurs will be more likely to succeed.”PEDC earns international award PHCC gearing up to talk about Porter Campus

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 4 By Diane Kortus Publisher I first considered writing a column about the demise of Patch last August when AOL Inc. announced it was shutting down most of its community websites. I mentioned this to a couple friends not in the newspaper business, and each gave me a puzzled look. “Patch?” they said. “Never heard of it.” One thought it was a website for people who liked to quilt; another was sure it had something to do with rabbits. Just in case you, too, never heard of Patch, it was a network of 900 or so websites around the country that posted local stories written by employees and viewers, including local Patch sites in Land O’ Lakes, Lutz and New Tampa. The Patch concept piggy-backed what we do best at The Laker/Lutz News — giving readers stories about local people, events and issues that are only found in their weekly community newspaper. We call this hyperlocal news. Patch offered this same hyperlocal formula, but in a digital format. And while Patch’s stories, photos and video clips were often very good, most of its websites never drew enough viewers to justify selling ads to local businesses. Patch failed not because of poor content, but because not enough people went to its website. There was never enough traffic to create the momentum needed to generate advertising dollars to cover its expenses, much less make a profit.So why was Patch unable to pull people like you to its websites when its content was much like the stories you’re reading in this week’s Laker or Lutz News? We believe the answer is so simple that it has been overlooked. The stories Patch covered and we write about are not urgent enough for you to search for them online. You’re just fine getting your community news in a weekly newspaper delivered to your home. We know from several research studies in our industry that only 25 percent of regular readers of community newspapers go to their paper’s website. And when they do, it’s just once a month on average. This means if you’re reading this column, you have probably never visited our website at www.LakerLutzNews.com. And my staff and I are OK with that because we never stopped believing in the power of the printed word. I believe egos get in the way of many publishers and journalists who incorrectly assume their stories are so important that they must be posted on their websites as soon as they are edited. They believe readers are as consumed as they are with getting news 24/7. Here at The Laker/Lutz News, we accept what the research verifies — that you like getting your community news the traditional way — in a newspaper delivered to your driveway that you can read when you choose. Those of you who do visit our website mostly go there to get digital links to stories you’ve already read in print. Or, you may be a seasonal resident wanting to keep up with the news here when you’re back north. Or, you may want to share it with relatives who live elsewhere. We think of our website as a service to readers who want to link our stories to their websites or Facebook pages. We’ve made it easy to navigate with a searchable archive of local stories going back to 2009. Our stories are posted Thursday morning, the day after you get The Laker or Lutz News at your home. I’ve never understood why most newspapers do the opposite —post stories to their websites before their readers have a chance to read them in their printed product. From my perspective, it’s like competing against yourself and cannibalizing your primary product. Which takes me full circle back to Patch. I believe Patch faced a daunting challenge from its beginning because AOL ignored what research has told us for years — that people seldom go online to seek hyperlocal news. It’s not that news websites are never viable. Certainly national websites for newspapers like USA Today and the Washington Post attract readers because they break important national and international stories. Even daily newspapers can have a strong Web following, especially for sports coverage where fans demand the immediacy of game results. But the kinds of stories Patch posted and we write about are not crucial to your daily routine. Most of our stories are not things you need to know about immediately. Rather they are stories you enjoy reading about when you have the time. Much has been written about newspapers being dinosaurs — that our industry is on its way to extinction because of the Internet. The Patch experiment proves that prediction false. The Laker/Lutz News has never been as well read as they are today. People have an innate yearning to know what’s happening in their community, and will forever get a thrill when they see the name or photo of someone they know in the newspaper. And there’s a good chance when they do, they will likely cut the story out, stick it on their refrigerator and mail a copy to friends and relatives. The power of the printed word PUBLISHER’S COLUMN Tackling those couch potatoes Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy tells students at Corbett Preparatory School that when he was their age, he hated to go outside. But he soon learned that exercise and healthy eating had to be part of his daily routine, and it should be for them, too. McCoy’s talk was part of Corbett’s ‘Good for You’ learning unit that focuses on nutrition, exercise and well-being.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 7 By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Patricia Murphy was delivering magazines to the James A. Haley Veterans’ Hospital in Tampa, when a young man in a wheelchair approached her. The man, who had lost his leg in the war, couldn’t have been more than 20 years old, she recalled. But here he was, thanking her for magazines. The young veteran told her that reading the magazines at the hospital was helping him through a tough time, and he told her he wished he could have had something to read while he was deployed. He wasn’t living at a base, he explained. He was living in a tent on the outskirts of Iraq. Having something to read, he told her, would have made a difference. Murphy said she thanked the young man for his service, stepped into the elevator and burst into tears. The experience inspired the Land O’ Lakes woman to launch Books for Troops. Now, in its third year, the organization has shipped more than 15,000 books to troops overseas and delivered 5,000 books to local veterans. It has an annual drive in October to collect the books that it sends out all year. “We are accepting action adventure, suspense, mystery, comedy and comic books,” Murphy said. “The most important thing is that they are in very good condition.” Besides shipping books to military personnel overseas, some books are delivered to hospitals and nursing homes. Because of military regulations, the organization cannot accept books about religion, the apocalypse or pornographic materials, Murphy said. The effort is aided by an army of helpers, Murphy said, noting this year three Girl Scout troops from Land O’ Lakes are helping with the collection drive, and four scout troops from Lutz are helping, too. “The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts come and they clean them and sort them by genre,” Murphy said. Local civic groups and businesses also play a huge role in the effort. Many businesses help by putting out collection boxes. Wesley Chapel Kia, she noted, has been there from the beginning. The storage unit for Books for Troop is at the 54 U Store in Lutz, which is a year-round collection site, Murphy added. “All of the paperbacks get shipped to the troops,” she said. The hardbacks are delivered to nursing homes. Any books that can’t be shipped or delivered because of their condition are recycled, so nothing is wasted. Murphy has been amazed by people’s generosity.“The first time I did it, I thought maybe I’d get 100 or 200 books,” she said. “But no, I ended up with over 5,000 at the first book drive.”Murphy said the donation of books has outpaced her ability to raise money to ship them. It costs $15 to ship a box of 30 books, said Murphy, noting her husband’s company, Psychological Assessment Resources, donates the shipping boxes. While she can get enough books to satisfy requests, she can’t raise enough money to ship them. Murphy thinks the books provide an excellent diversion for troops, when they have some down time. “It is a really good way to get their mind off the heat, the bugs,” she said. When they’re staying in remote places, she added, “they don’t have television.” The books go to war zones, but she’s also shipped them to such places as Japan, Germany and China. They also go to hospitals all over the country. If anyone would like to volunteer, host a collection box, or make a tax-deductible donation, email Patricia Murphy at BooksforTroops@verizon.net .Books for Troops offers peaceful respiteA new duck dynasty Finding the fastest duck in the county was determined during races at the inaugural Duck Gala hosted by Mid-Way Farm & Ranch Supply in Spring Hill.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 11 Dale Mabry entrance reopens, but more roadwork comingBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com Good weather and some fast work shortened the time southbound traffic on U.S. 41 was unable to access North Dale Mabry Highway directly. But expect some more lane closures this weekend. CSX Transportation is repairing railroad tracks at the crossing right at the start of Dale Mabry, and road closings last week forced drivers to take County Line Road or Brinson Road. Northbound traffic will get to experience the same beginning at 5 a.m. on Friday, forcing those looking to get onto U.S. 41 from North Dale Mabry Highway to once again use County Line or Brinson roads, according to Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kris Carson. Part of southbound traffic was reopened by Monday for North Dale Mabry Highway, but it was limited to a single lane. It’s expected to fully open by mid-week. That’s part of a number of road delays that will affect the central Pasco County area and northern Hillsborough County area over the next week. Construction continues primarily along the Veterans Expressway, which could affect traffic on its northern end, the Suncoast Parkway. However, the Suncoast is also part of the all-electric tolling conversion project where tollbooths are being eliminated and only SunPass and drivers being billed by their license plate will be accepted. To help accommodate the work, the southbound off-ramp of Van Dyke Road on the Suncoast will be closed overnight on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23. County Line Road will have closures and detours as well, with the northbound on-ramp closed Oct. 23 and Oct. 24, and the southbound off-ramp closed Oct. 24. For the Veterans, there are going to be general lane closures nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Sunday night to Friday morning. There also is expected to be some singlelane closures near Gunn Highway this week southbound for restriping that will result in a new traffic pattern on the northbound onramp. Schedules can change, however, depending on weather and other factors. The Florida Department of Transportation and Florida’s Turnpike should be completed with both projects overall by summer of 2015. Traffic had to find an alternative route last week from U.S. 41 to the beginning of Dale Mabry Highway as CSX worked to replace railroad tracks at its crossing there.

That prompted Slutzky to audition for the next play, hoping to make it into the chorus. Instead, he was cast as the lead — a trend that would continue for the next two productions as well. “The next three shows after that, however, I didn’t get the part,” Slutzky said. “That brought me back down to where I needed to be. Otherwise, who knows, I may have skipped law school to pursue acting, and I may have ended up as your waiter somewhere. The concept of a starving actor is just not for me.” “La Cage aux Folles” is probably more familiar to audiences through its comedy film adaptation “The Birdcage,” which starred Robin Williams and Nathan Lane in 1996. Slutzky plays Georges, a character similar to Williams’ Armand Goldman, the owner of a gay nightclub, who suddenly finds himself entertaining a visit from the very conservative family of his son’s fiance.“The storyline is the same as the movie, but it’s a totally unique experience,” Slutzky said. “People will laugh until their sides hurt.”Slutzky openly invites friends and clients alike to his performances, but still gets surprised looks from some when they realize who’s on stage. “People think that because I’m an attorney, I must be conservative, quiet or boring, but that’s not the way many of us are at all,” Slutzky said. Performing in shows is a huge time commitment, so great that Slutzky limits himself to one production each year. But even with a grueling schedule, the stage is where he feels he belongs. “You know that feeling you get when you’ve worked inside in a freezing cold airconditioned office all day, and your car has been outside baking in the sun?” he said. “You get in, and you get that wonderful feeling of heat that warms you down to the bone. That’s the feeling I get when the spotlight hits me.” Slutzky’s all-time favorite role is Harold Hill in “The Music Man,” but now that he’s 60, he’s not exactly the right age to play the part anymore. That has opened the door for other characters, including Tevye, the Jewish father and milkman who sings his way through oppression in “Fiddler on the Roof.” “You experience every emotion in that role, and that’s particularly meaningful for me,” Slutzky said. “My heritage is Russian Jew, and at the time the story is set, that could’ve well been my family being thrown out of Russia.” After more than 40 years on the stage, Slutzky said he’s still excited to see younger people in the audience. Newer generations have so many ways to be entertained, and going to the theater usually isn’t high on the list. “I was worried a few times that it was a dying art form,” Slutzky said. “But now I see a whole new generation who do have a love for Broadway musicals, and I am very happy.” FAT TUESDAY! 1 Hour Massage ONLY$25 Space is Limited, Call Today! 18954 N.

You have stores and neighborhoods right up to the road. If you end up widening with new lanes, you’re going to be bulldozing.” Some business owners, however, disagree. In an August meeting with Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, a few members of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce expressed opposition to the road, fearing it would allow traffic to bypass their businesses. “Things are going to get congested if we keep going the way we’re going,” Hagen said. “The idea that you’re going to attract more business somehow as we turn the place into a parking lot is something to rethink here. A way for local businesses to get more business is to separate out the people who are not planning to stop anyway — who are just wanting to get across the county — and opening up the surface roads to local traffic.”Following the moneyIf built, the elevated expressway would be the first privately owned toll road in Florida. Cost estimates weren’t shared, but using the elevated road built for Tampa’s Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in the early 2000s as a model, builders could be looking at a cost of $70 million … per mile. That would bring the total price tag of this project to around $2.3 billion. Stanley’s group, IIP, would raise the money through private sources like hedge funds, and then try to recoup that investment — with the necessary profit — through toll revenue collected by travelers who choose the expressway. Yet, that profit model could be troubling. Last year, toll roads in Florida collected revenue of $616 million from travelers. That’s broken down to $1.3 million per mile. Applying those numbers to this project would generate prospective revenue of $44.2 million each year. Even if IIP never spends another dime on the road, it would take the company 52 years to recoup its investment.But that might be OK. Neil Gray, director of government affairs for the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association in Washington, D.C., says investors in projects like this know what they’re getting in to, and many are willing to play the long game. “We’re talking as much as 99 years,” Gray said. “A 99-year concession is patient money. It also allows them, from the private side, to make these things happen that might not be viable on the state level. They can pool that money together right now, and build it right now.” Not accounting for inflation or other in-ROAD, from page 1 LAWYER, from page 1 Acting has been a passion for Jerry Slutzky since he was a teenager growing up in Chicago. Here, he plays Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman with five daughters, in a 2006 production of the musical classic ‘Fiddler on the Roof.’ (Photo courtesy of Jerry Slutzky)creases and variables, a 99-year agreement on a Pasco elevated roadway would generate revenue of $4.4 billion — doubling the initial investment.Learning from others’ mistakesThe FDOT, however, should be very careful about such long deals, says the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund, an independent advocacy group that has spoken out against road privatization.In a 2009 report authored by Phineas Baxandall, any agreements between the government and a private entity should clearly spell out expectations, and leave some of the decision-making — like toll rates — to the public. On top of that, no deal should last longer than 30 years, because even if the toll road fails, the structure will still be there, and the county will have to deal with it. Toll roads really can fail, by the way. Just look at the Camino Colombia Toll Road in Texas. Built in 2000 at a cost of $90 million, the 22-mile road between the Mexican border and Interstate 35 north of Laredo was expected to generate $9 million in its first year alone based on the traffic created by the North American Free Trade Agreement, U.S. PIRG said. Instead, the road that charged tractor-trailers $16 each earned just $500,000.Within a few years, the road was sold at auction to an investment company for $12.1 million, who in turn shut it down. The Texas Department of Transportation needed that road in operation, and it cost the government entity $20 million to buy it and reopen it.“No matter who runs it, the physical structure is going to be there, and it never goes away,” said Gray, adding that lessons are being learned to prevent another Camino Colombia debacle. “Each time these transactions are done, the government side is getting smarter and smarter and smarter. Now you have governments that negotiate contracts that include a series of performance metrics. If you fail to maintain those level of standards, you will breach the contract, and the government gets the road for free.”Something has to be doneFlorida has a big problem on its hands when it comes to roads, and it may depend on private proposals like IIP’s to grow the state’s infrastructure. By 2020, Florida is expected to be $47 billion short in funding transportation improvements, like repaving, lane expansion and new roads. “Our gas tax funding that pays for the highway system is no longer sustainable,” said Christa Deason, a spokeswoman with Florida’s Turnpike. “People are driving less, they are using transit more, and buying hybrid cars. There is not a ton of money pouring into the coffers anymore to build these roads, or even to maintain the ones we built 50 years ago.” Pasco County has hit a similar wall. Commissioners had proposed a local gas tax increase to help fund road maintenance and construction for the coming year, but it failed under public pressure. “We need to look at progressive ways to move traffic on 54,” Commissioner Starkey said. During its presentation last week to county officials, the Urban Land Institute — the independent growth and development analytical group — strongly suggested Pasco stay away from the elevated road, and instead concentrate on reducing the need for more roads in the first place. That means developing communities that have live, work and play all within walking distance, or easily accessible through public mass transit. “What ULI was trying to say is that we need to reduce trips so that people don’t have to go all the way across the county to get to a Wiregrass mall for instance,” Pasco EDC’s Hagen said. “We should create shopping experiences that are close by, that people can walk to.” No matter what someone’s position is on the proposed elevated road, the conversation must continue, he said. “People are just reading a small article in the paper, or they see a 30-second thing on television, and it doesn’t really explain the full complexity of how to do traffic planning, and how it fits into good community planning,” Hagen said. “Trying to get people engaged to create some light rather than heat, that would be a good step.” If you go‘La Cage aux Folles’ takes the stage Nov. 1-17 at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive in Largo. Shows are at 8 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday, with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets are $29, and $16 for students. For more information, call (727) 587-6793, or visit www.LargoArts.com. Community Center, 98 First Ave., N.W. The meeting is intended for volunteers in Lutz who may want to participate in the maintenance of the medians along U.S. 41. Mike White, founder and president of the Lutz Citizens Coalition, said he’s happy with efforts made to date to preserve the trees. “I think it’s a win-win,” White said. “The voice of Lutz was heard loud and clear.” He said the solution demonstrates great follow-through by Legg, the county, Walmart, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Hillsborough County and the Lutz Citizens Coalition. “Everyone stepped up to the plate,” White said. On another front, the Lutz Citizens Coalition recently received approval to adopt Sunset Lane, from U.S. 41 to Livingston Avenue. White said he expects the cleanups to occur about a half-dozen times a year, followed by a social gathering of the volunteers.HOUSE, from page 1 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 14

The improvements are in response to reports the two banks were falling short of servicing standard requirements set forth by the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement. That settlement was finalized in February 2012 with five banks, including both Bank of America and Wells Fargo, that would provide as much as $25 billion to provide loan modifications, refinancing and even payments to borrowers who lost their homes.The two banks said they would implement substantial changes in their loan modification application procedures that would improve borrower communication, simplify the document collection process, provide more direct attention to loan modification applicants and housing counselors, and ensure that the banks’ foreclosure attorneys are armed with the proper information regarding the borrowers’ loss mitigation efforts.“The new procedures being implemented by Bank of America and Wells Fargo ensure that the banks will do a better job of providing Florida’s distressed homeowners the timely and effective assistance they need,” Bondi said in a release. “The changes the banks are now implementing are in response to numerous homeowner complaints supplied by my office, as well as other attorneys general, demonstrating a disturbing pattern of potential noncompliance by the banks with the loss mitigation procedures required by the settlement.” The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report More than $35,000 in grants has been awarded to three Pasco County organizations from the Verizon Foundation. The grants were given to the Pasco County’s Mobile Medical Care Unit, AMIkids and RAP House to help those organizations support domestic violence prevention and service programs. “I am extremely pleased with the commitment and generosity that the Verizon Foundation has exhibited towards Pasco County,” said State Rep. Richard Corcoran, RLand O’ Lakes, in a release. “These grants totaling $35,000 will go a long way towards helping children and families in need throughout Pasco County.” The Mobile Medical Care Unit, which received $15,000, is a “doctor’s office on wheels,” which provides medical care for those in need. The staff includes a nurse practitioner, emergency medical technician and an outreach attorney. The unit travels to more than a dozen locations in Pasco, serving homeless residents who have no insurance. AMIkids was awarded $10,000 to help children with a troubled past overcome various obstacles in life to become responsible and productive people. The program began in 1969 by a juvenile court judge in Fort Lauderdale. RAP House, a runaway and youth crisis program for troubled youth more formally known as the Runaway Alternatives Project, was given $10,000. That organization serves children between the ages of 10 and 17 through Youth & Family Alternatives with a goal of helping to strengthen and provide social services to children and families in need. In all, Verizon Foundation had $100,000 in grants available. Banks reconsider foreclosure strategyVerizon provides $35,000 in charitable grants

Dr. Ricardo Prieto is the newest gastroenterologist at Florida Medical Clinic, joining the specialty as its ninth board-certified physician. He began seeing patients in September after completing his fellowship in Gastroenterology/Digestive Diseases and Nutrition from the University of South Florida. After graduating from medical school in Puerto Rico in 2007, Dr. Prieto moved to Tampa for his medical internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of South Florida. After completing his residency, he continued at USF for another three years in a gastroenterology fellowship. Dr. Prieto and his wife, Lian, live in Tampa Palms with their two children, 4-year-old Ricardo Jr. and 2-year-old Ariana. Dr. Prieto spends all of his free time with his young family and especially enjoys fishing with his son. The Laker / Lutz News& Working together forwww.floridamedicalclinic.com  813-780-8440 GOOD HEALTH After 14 years of higher education to become a gastroenterologist, Dr. Ricardo Prieto always thought he would return to his native Puerto Rico to practice medicine. But when he completed his fellowship this summer at the University of South Florida, Dr. Prieto had an intriguing offer from Florida Medical Clinic to join its well-regarded gastroenterology practice. My wife and I had grown to love Tampa and USF „ a great institution that provided me excellent clinical exposure,Ž said Dr. Prieto. So when the opportunity at FMC came about, we decided staying in Tampa was the right thing to do professionally, and for our family.Ž As FMCs newest gastroenterologist, Dr. Prieto is building his practice by providing care to FMC patients who are hospitalized and referred during their stay to his specialty. Many chronic conditions affect the GI system, and we are called in to help patients with problems they may have, like swallowing or with their digestive system,Ž said Dr. Prieto. Fortunately, many of the problems we see are often very treatable and we can usually improve a patients quality of life.Ž Gastroenterology covers everything in the digestive tract, from the mouth and esophagus, to the colon and rectum. Although some patients have sudden, acute problems, most suffer from chronic diseases or disorders of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon. Because he is a new physician, Dr. Prietos schedule is fairly open, and he can see new patients within a week or two of their call. Many patients like the care they receive from Dr. Prieto because of his sensitive nature and because as a new doctor, he is up-to-date on the newest research and treatment protocols. I am fortunate to be backed up by some of the most experienced and talented gastroenterologists in Tampa Bay,Ž said Dr. Prieto. My patients have the benefit of the vast experiences of our team.Ž Dr. Prieto describes himself as a doctor who listens well, with the ability to make patients feel comfortable. I understand that its not easy to talk about stool,Ž said Dr. Prieto. I am very sensitive to my patients feelings and do everything I can to make them at ease.Ž Gastroenterology is an incredibly interesting field that allows us to work with patients of all ages,Ž he continues. I find it very fulfilling to help someone get better, to relieve their pain with the right treatment, and to improve their quality of life.Ž Dr. Ricardo Prieto Is FMCs Newest Gastroenterologist Gastroenterology ServicesColon cancer Gastroesophageal reflux disease Peptic ulcer disease Gastrointestinal bleeding Inflammatory bowel disease Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy Gastrointestinal malignancies Esophageal disease Viral hepatitis Liver disease Motility disorders Malabsorption and malnutrition Clinical nutrition educationSpecialty ServicesSmall bowel capsule endoscopy Lactose breathe testing Infusion center for inflammatory bowel disease, antibiotics, Reclast, Boniva Whos whoMeetDr. Ricardo Prieto 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 18 B y K im S alerno Special to The Laker/Lutz News It’s that time of year again, to break out the light layers and trade sipping frosty lemonade on hot afternoons for savoring hot cocoa on chilly mornings. Best of all, it’s that time when Mother Nature dresses her very best. If your fall spirit is kicking in and you’re anxious to take in some glorious autumn foliage before it’s gone, consider bringing along your favorite four-legged friend. He’ll enjoy seeing the sights, but most of all, he’ll love getting some fresh air and exercise with his favorite human. From Alabama, to Maine, to Oregon, we’ve rounded up some of the best places to experience fall with your pet.Southern RegionThe south is a surprisingly great place to peep at some leaves, and Alabama’s Oak Mountain State Park is a great spot to enjoy the onset of fall. From Oct. 19 through the first few days of November, you and your leashed dog can surround yourself in this huge, uncrowded park’s lush and brilliant vegetation, which makes a lovely contract with its dark peaks and green valleys.Mid-Atlantic RegionFamous for its spectacular fall leaf show, the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia draws thousands of tourists each year. One of only a few national parks that allows dogs on its trails, Shenandoah National Park offers some of the nation’s most stunning views in any season. However, it’s especially beautiful in midto late October, when the foliage blankets the mountains in a tapestry of red, gold and orange. Dogs are allowed on almost every trail in the park, but they must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet at all times.Northeastern RegionWhen we think of fall, we often think of those iconic images from New England. One of the best places to see the Northeast in all its autumn glory is Acadia National Park in Maine. There are a full 100 miles of pet-friendly trails in this park. Traverse diverse landscapes, including tranquil sea islands, craggy mountains and lush forests. MidwestIf you’re headed west this fall, make the Kootenai National Forest in Montana a stop on your trip’s itinerary. You and your pooch will enjoy the beautiful and rugged wilderness setting, which is replete with vibrant colors from around late September through early October. A variety of dog-friendly trails will take you across gorges, valleys, meadows and tranquil forests.Pacific NorthwestThe towering trees and grandiose landscapes of the Pacific Northwest make its fall foliage particularly dramatic. One incredible (and incredibly dogfriendly) place to leaf peep here is the Columbia River Gorge. It sits about 25 miles from Portland, Ore. and features spectacular views from the Columbia River, which are highlighted in midto late October by brilliantly colored foliage. Along with the river, you’ll be treated to views of cascading waterfalls, historic bridges and cliff-side railways. Hiking trails in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area allow you to leaf-peep at your own pace, and your leashed pet is welcome to tag along.Rules and RegulationsIt’s important to note that even the most dog-friendly parks and hiking trails have strict pet rules. Dogs can frighten wildlife, disrupt nesting birds or feeding animals, and disturb other hikers. For this reason, parks typically ask that dogs be kept on leashes 6 feet or shorter, and don’t allow them to roam in wilderness areas.To prevent damage and mess, most parks prohibit pets from entering buildings. As in every other public area, you must clean up after your dog, keep him reasonably quiet, and prevent him from doing any damage. Remember that your dog will be in an unfamiliar setting, and may not behave as he usually does. With a little planning, you and your pet can find the sweetest spots to welcome fall together.—Kim Salerno is the president and founder of TripsWithPets.com, and is an expert in the field of pet travel.

By Michael Murillo The Laker/Lutz News Correspondent When a football game looks like a good match-up on paper, too often the end result is a lopsided affair that fails to live up to expectations. And last Friday’s contest between Land O’ Lakes and Sunlake looked like a potential classic on paper. This time, the game didn’t meet expectations. It beat them. At the end of the game — which required overtime — the Sunlake Seahawks defended their home turf, put themselves in good position in the district standings and turned away the previously unbeaten Gators with a 28-21 victory. That overtime was necessary underscores how close the game was: Neither team led by more than seven points, and they were tied at halftime, the end of the third quarter and at the end of regulation. And when Sunlake stopped Land O’ Lakes in overtime to clinch the win, Seahawks head coach Bill Browning’s first thoughts came from the perspective of both a football coach and a football fan. “It was just relief, and what a great game to be a part of,” Browning said. “It was a great high school football game. Both teams played their hearts out.” Each team had an offensive star suiting up for the contest, and both showed up to play: Sunlake’s junior running back Nathan Johnson and Land O’ Lakes’ junior quarterback James Pensyl had a hand in six of the seven touchdowns scored in the game. In the end, it was Johnson’s third touchdown run in overtime that became the margin of victory, eclipsing Pensyl’s three scoring passes. But Browning pointed out that another player was instrumental in Sunlake’s victory. Senior quarterback Esteban LeWallen didn’t dominate the stat sheet, but his second start in place of injured junior Dayton Feiden was a solid one. He ran in a short touchdown and made important plays with his arm when it mattered. “He came in and hit some very big passes in the course of that game that helped tremendously,” Browning said. While beating an undefeated team is cause for celebration in itself, there was more at stake than one football game. With the win, Sunlake improved to 2-1 in the district while Land O’ Lakes fell to 1-1, keeping Sunlake alive for one of the two playoff spots. An earlier one-point loss to Springstead (currently 2-0 in district play) meant that losing to Land O’ Lakes would have handed both teams a better current record and tiebreakers over the Seahawks, eliminating them from playoff contention. Instead they emerged with new life, a big victory and a potential tiebreaker against their district rival. But if the team is vulnerable to a letdown after such a big win, Browning plans to use the schedule to ensure that doesn’t happen. The Seahawks have a bye this coming week, and he plans to use it to get them settled after an emotional victory and focused on their final district contest against Fivay (0-2 in district play, 3-4 overall) on Nov. 1. Headed into their week off, Sunlake now has a 1,000-yard rusher in Johnson, renewed confidence and an eye on the playoffs. But to Browning, none of that matters unless they take care of business in their final district game. “It kept us in the hunt. It guaranteed nothing, but it kept us in the hunt,” he said about the team’s recent win. “Land O’ Lakes still has to play Springstead, and of course, we still have to beat Fivay. All we can do is keep winning and things will take care of themselves, hopefully.” 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 20 SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS CHECK THIS OUT A Pasco classic: Sunlake stops Land O’ Lakes in OT Adult soccer league wants playersWith the fall season ready to commence, adult soccer players are being sought to participate in a league that plays men’s, women’s and coed games Sunday afternoons at CrossRoads Community Methodist Church on County Line Road in Wesley Chapel.

Hair Port Magic Hair Port Magic The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Pink has become a popular color in October because of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but the Better Business Bureau is warning those making donations to be wary of “pinkwashing” scams. Every year, scammers find a way to take advantage of good deeds like giving to breast cancer research, the BBC said. But before making a donation, consumers should research the organization where the pink product claims to come from first. The widely recognized pink ribbon symbol is not regulated by an agency, and does not necessarily mean it promotes breast cancer research or charities. Some products have a pink ribbon in order to indicate that the company supports breast cancer programs, even if the company’s contributions are not tied to the purchase of the specific product bearing the ribbon. While other companies give a portion of an item’s cost to a breast cancer organization, a consumer may need to research the claims in order to know how their donation will benefit the cause. In some cases, companies will indicate that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a pink ribbon product will go to support breast cancer programs, but put a cap on their maximum donation. Once the maximum amount has been met, the company may continue to sell the product with the pink ribbon without alerting customers that no additional funds will be donated to breast cancer organizations. There are many companies that sell pink products where a portion of the sale price goes directly to the charity the business is supporting. While the majority of these efforts are trustworthy, the BBB recommends consumers take the following steps to double-check their efforts.  Ask questions. Find out what percentage of the sales price will be donated, to which charity, and how the funds will be used.  Research the business. Learn more about the business you’re purchasing from by checking their BBB Business Review at BBB.org.  Confirm the charity’s corporate partners. Many national breast cancer charities list corporate partners and sponsors on their website. Check to make sure the business you’re purchasing from is associated with the charity.  Consider a direct donation. Find a charity that can be trusted at BBB.org/charity, and make a donation directly. When donating online, be sure to print the confirmation page, as many donations are tax-deductible.Be sure that pink donation is going to cancer research Bob Marley has nothing on this Chihuahua, Gidget. Gidget’s proud owner is Pat Sklar of New Port Richey. Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Service is seeking a good home for Cookie Monster a 4-year-old lab who has had a rough life.

But none was more grueling than the one where he eventually found his future fiance. A lawyer and financial advisor who works right off State Road 54 on Sterlington Drive, Slutzky had maintained a profile on the website Match.com almost since the beginning of the sites existence. Helen Techler, an audiologist out of Dunedin, posted a profile, and received 100 responses. She didnt want to go through it, and instead tasked her daughter to pick out three. One of them was Slutzky. I was nervous, but I would go into any meeting like this just looking for someone who enjoys doing things, and being someone who shares that interest, Slutzky said. With Helen, I got the rose. But he did have a bit of an advantage. Slutzky has been auditioning his entire life, finding a home on the stage for many popular productions like Music Man and Kiss Me Kate. Slutzky was born into a family of Chicago lawyers, and would become one himself. But there was something about the stage that always fascinated him and the theater bug was something he could never cure. So much that even today, with a busy work schedule and a full personal life because of Helen, he makes the time to appear on stage, like the starring role in the upcoming production of La Cage aux Folles in Largo. In high school, I played trombone, and our orchestra always played for the spring musical, Slutzky said. I would be in the pit orchestra, but it always looked like more fun to be on stage than in the pit. By Michael Hinmanm h i n m an@cnewspub s.co mThe deadline is here for groups wanting to convince the Florida Department of Transportation to part with valuable road rights of way in Pasco Countys State Road 54/56 corridor. The FDOT asked for the proposals after it received an unsolicited request to lease the rights of way to build a 33-mile elevated toll road that could possibly shorten the trip between Zephyrhills and New Port Richey to less than 30 minutes. Gerald Stanley and International Infrastructure Partners LLC piqued the interest of state officials and the county as a whole with the request in June, and its created debate on not only if its good for the county, but if such a project is even feasible. Those answers are yes and yes, said John Hagen, president and chief executive of the Pasco Economic Development Council. The fact is, Pasco County is growing quickly, and even an expanded State Road 54 struggles to accommodate the traffic it receives. You either have to build a bunch of new lanes and widen it out, or you have to International Infrastructure Partners have proposed building a 33-mile stretch of elevated road, like this one built over the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in Tampa, to help move traffic from one side of the county to the other. But some observers warn that state officials should keep some hand in any project that gets approved. (Photo by Michael Hinman) Jerry Slutzky is a man who wears many hats.

Manionb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mWhen word got out about Hillsborough Countys plans to cut down trees in the U.S. 41 medians in Lutz, it took howls of protests to silence the chain saws. Armed with promises from State Sen. Jon Legg, R-Lutz, and Hillsborough County officials to work with the community to find another solution, a meeting has been set for Oct. 29 to discuss what to do instead. The county had planned to cut down the trees because it wanted to return maintenance of the medians to the Florida Department of Transportation, which has jurisdiction over the highway. The state roads department would only take over if 91 of the 135 trees in the median were removed.The trees slated for destruction were 64 crape myrtle, 14 wax myrtle, seven live oaks, three Shumard oaks and three red maple.After a contentious community meeting on Jan. 24, however, the county put the brakes on that plan and agreed to return to the community for another meeting to discuss potential solutions. Recently, the trees won a two-year reprieve, when Walmart stepped forward with a $5,000 check to cover maintenance costs. That solution resulted from a partnership between Legg, Hillsborough County, the Lutz Citizens Coalition and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful. Walmart said it would revisit the matter in two years, Legg said. Meanwhile, efforts can be made to broaden support. Now that a temporary solution has been found, another community meeting has been set for 6:30 p.m. on Oct. 29 at the Lutz It took a partnership among several groups to work out a plan to prevent chain saws from taking down the trees in the medians along U.S. 41 in Lutz. Those who banded together to help protect the trees included, from left, Debra Evenson, executive director of Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful; Chris Smith, assistant manager at the Walmart in Lutz; State Sen. John Legg; and Sam Calco, Louise Friar, and Mike White of the Lutz Citizens Coalition. (Photo courtesy of the Lutz Citizens Coalition) See TREES, page14

If you suffer with fibromyalgia or chronic pain, you know how demanding life can be. 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.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com B y B .C. M anionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThree sessions have been scheduled to provide information about Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, a new satellite campus of Pasco-Hernando Community College that is scheduled to open in January. The Porter Campus, which is under construction at Mansfield Boulevard and State Road 56, is situated in an area poised to attract major employers and substantial residential growth in coming years. It is directly across State Road 54 from the site where Raymond James, an international financial services company, is expected to build an office park. The Porter Campus plans include six buildings. One of its structures will stand 122 feet tall, giving the campus the bragging rights of having Pasco Countys highest building.College officials anticipate attracting students from Pasco, Hernando and Hillsborough counties. One day, the Porter Campus is expected to draw about the same number of students as the colleges West Campus, the main campus in New Port Richey.The information sessions are designed to provide a wealth of information to potential students. Three individual sessions are scheduled at Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel, in the second floor conference room of Wellness Plaza, 2600 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Each session will be from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., and they will be on Nov. 4, Nov. 5 and Nov. 6. The sessions are intended for prospective, current and returning PHCC students who are interested in attending the new Porter Campus. College faculty and staff will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about the campus. The sessions will highlight student support services, student activities, programs and courses, prerequisite courses, testing, and admission requirements. Question-and-answer sessions are also planned, with a panel fielding the questions. The campus has encountered some construction delays because of weather, but unless a hurricane hits or another natural disaster occurs, college officials expect the campus to open on schedule in early January, said Lucy Miller, PHCCs executive director of marketing and public relations. The Porter Campus is slated to offer a bachelor of applied science degree in supervision and management, and a bachelor of science in nursing degree beginning in the fall of 2014. It has received permission from the state and is now awaiting action on its application from the board of directors of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges. The board meets in Atlanta in December. The college has appointed Stan Giannet to serve as provost of the Porter Campus. Previously, he served in that same capacity at PHCCs North Campus. Those wishing to attend the information sessions are encouraged to sign up now. Space for each session is limited to 50, for a total of 150. The deadline for registering for the free session is Nov. 1. To sign up, go to www.phcc.edu/rsvp. Call (727) 816-3398 for more information.

Manion)B y M ichael Hinm anmhinman@cnewspubs.comThe International Economic Development Council had reason to recognize Pasco County earlier this month, bestowing its Gold Excellence in Economic Development Award to the Pasco Economic Development Council. PEDC had established an unconventional, collaborative entrepreneurship program called the Pasco Enterprise Network. From that, a new business incubator, as well as a microloan fund for small businesses, was formed. These awards are meant to honor the organizations and individuals who are dedicated to making a positive change in their communities, IEDC chair Paul Krutko said in a release. PEDC uses creative solutions and inventive ideas, and offers other regions a wonderful example to learn and benefit from. The enterprise network, recognized as the best of the best for communities with populations of between 200,000 and 500,000 people, is a one-stop resource for finding guidance and assistance for new businesses, according to the PEDCs website. Its a collaborative effort of nonprofit groups that provide consulting, counseling, education and technical assistance. Basically, this was all put into place because there was a lack of capital for startup businesses and small businesses in the county, said Krista Covey, the PEDCs economic development manager. We are about job creation and about supporting our local economy to help our businesses grow and be prosperous. The hindrance was capital.The microloan program has put capital back on the market, especially during a time in the recent past when banks werent exactly lending to small businesses. With a pool of $320,000 thanks to investments from Saint Leo University, various banks and other groups, nine loans of up to $35,000 have been distributed so far with low interest rates and terms of no more than six years.The loans themselves have created 24 jobs in the county, Covey said, and this past summer, even had its first payoff when 301 Designs Inc. paid back its loan 17 months ahead of schedule. An online retail apparel company, 301 Designs started in the home of its founder, Gil Gauthier, and is now operating out of a 2,400-square-foot warehouse space. If a company comes in and has a good business plan in place, thats great, Covey said. Even if they dont have a business plan, we automatically refer them to the small business development center and theyll be walked through the whole process.Even if a company qualifies for money under the microloan program, the help doesnt stop there. We offer ongoing technical assistance along with the other help theyll receive from the PEDC, Covey said. We want them to be successful, and we want them to be a viable business. Its incubator at the Dade City Business Center is the first of its kind in Pasco County. The SmartStart incubator is an overall partnership that includes the help of Dade City government officials, the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, Florida High Tech Corridor Council, Saint Leo, the Florida Small Business Development Center, and the University of South Floridas USF Connect. The IEDC has more than 4,000 members around the world, and its excellence in economic development awards recognizes the worlds best economic development programs and partnerships, marketing materials, and most influential leaders. This award is the sixth stateor nationallevel accolade in the last three years for the PEDC. We know that a successful economy depends on small businesses and the support of entrepreneurship, said PEDC chief executive John Hagen, in a release. Working together as a support network, entrepreneurs will be more likely to succeed.PEDC earns international award PHCC gearing up to talk about Porter Campus

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 4 By Diane KortusPublisherI first considered writing a column about the demise of Patch last August when AOL Inc. announced it was shutting down most of its community websites. I mentioned this to a couple friends not in the newspaper business, and each gave me a puzzled look. Patch? they said. Never heard of it. One thought it was a website for people who liked to quilt; another was sure it had something to do with rabbits. Just in case you, too, never heard of Patch, it was a network of 900 or so websites around the country that posted local stories written by employees and viewers, including local Patch sites in Land O Lakes, Lutz and New Tampa. The Patch concept piggy-backed what we do best at The Laker/Lutz News giving readers stories about local people, events and issues that are only found in their weekly community newspaper. We call this hyperlocal news. Patch offered this same hyperlocal formula, but in a digital format. And while Patchs stories, photos and video clips were often very good, most of its websites never drew enough viewers to justify selling ads to local businesses. Patch failed not because of poor content, but because not enough people went to its website. There was never enough traffic to create the momentum needed to generate advertising dollars to cover its expenses, much less make a profit.So why was Patch unable to pull people like you to its websites when its content was much like the stories youre reading in this weeks Laker or Lutz News? We believe the answer is so simple that it has been overlooked. The stories Patch covered and we write about are not urgent enough for you to search for them online. Youre just fine getting your community news in a weekly newspaper delivered to your home. We know from several research studies in our industry that only 25 percent of regular readers of community newspapers go to their papers website. And when they do, its just once a month on average. This means if youre reading this column, you have probably never visited our website at www.LakerLutzNews.com. And my staff and I are OK with that because we never stopped believing in the power of the printed word. I believe egos get in the way of many publishers and journalists who incorrectly assume their stories are so important that they must be posted on their websites as soon as they are edited. They believe readers are as consumed as they are with getting news 24/7. Here at The Laker/Lutz News, we accept what the research verifies that you like getting your community news the traditional way in a newspaper delivered to your driveway that you can read when you choose. Those of you who do visit our website mostly go there to get digital links to stories youve already read in print. Or, you may be a seasonal resident wanting to keep up with the news here when youre back north. Or, you may want to share it with relatives who live elsewhere. We think of our website as a service to readers who want to link our stories to their websites or Facebook pages. Weve made it easy to navigate with a searchable archive of local stories going back to 2009. Our stories are posted Thursday morning, the day after you get The Laker or Lutz News at your home. Ive never understood why most newspapers do the opposite post stories to their websites before their readers have a chance to read them in their printed product. From my perspective, its like competing against yourself and cannibalizing your primary product. Which takes me full circle back to Patch. I believe Patch faced a daunting challenge from its beginning because AOL ignored what research has told us for years that people seldom go online to seek hyperlocal news. Its not that news websites are never viable. Certainly national websites for newspapers like USA Today and the Washington Post attract readers because they break important national and international stories. Even daily newspapers can have a strong Web following, especially for sports coverage where fans demand the immediacy of game results. But the kinds of stories Patch posted and we write about are not crucial to your daily routine. Most of our stories are not things you need to know about immediately. Rather they are stories you enjoy reading about when you have the time. Much has been written about newspapers being dinosaurs that our industry is on its way to extinction because of the Internet. The Patch experiment proves that prediction false. The Laker/Lutz News has never been as well read as they are today. People have an innate yearning to know whats happening in their community, and will forever get a thrill when they see the name or photo of someone they know in the newspaper. And theres a good chance when they do, they will likely cut the story out, stick it on their refrigerator and mail a copy to friends and relatives. The power of the printed word PUBLISHERS COLUMN Tackling those couch potatoesTampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Gerald McCoy tells students at Corbett Preparatory School that when he was their age, he hated to go outside. But he soon learned that exercise and healthy eating had to be part of his daily routine, and it should be for them, too.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 7 By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPatricia Murphy was delivering magazines to the James A. Haley Veterans Hospital in Tampa, when a young man in a wheelchair approached her. The man, who had lost his leg in the war, couldnt have been more than 20 years old, she recalled. But here he was, thanking her for magazines. The young veteran told her that reading the magazines at the hospital was helping him through a tough time, and he told her he wished he could have had something to read while he was deployed. He wasnt living at a base, he explained. He was living in a tent on the outskirts of Iraq. Having something to read, he told her, would have made a difference. Murphy said she thanked the young man for his service, stepped into the elevator and burst into tears. The experience inspired the Land O Lakes woman to launch Books for Troops. Now, in its third year, the organization has shipped more than 15,000 books to troops overseas and delivered 5,000 books to local veterans. It has an annual drive in October to collect the books that it sends out all year. We are accepting action adventure, suspense, mystery, comedy and comic books, Murphy said. The most important thing is that they are in very good condition. Besides shipping books to military personnel overseas, some books are delivered to hospitals and nursing homes. Because of military regulations, the organization cannot accept books about religion, the apocalypse or pornographic materials, Murphy said. The effort is aided by an army of helpers, Murphy said, noting this year three Girl Scout troops from Land O Lakes are helping with the collection drive, and four scout troops from Lutz are helping, too. The Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts come and they clean them and sort them by genre, Murphy said. Local civic groups and businesses also play a huge role in the effort. Many businesses help by putting out collection boxes. Wesley Chapel Kia, she noted, has been there from the beginning. The storage unit for Books for Troop is at the 54 U Store in Lutz, which is a year-round collection site, Murphy added. All of the paperbacks get shipped to the troops, she said. The hardbacks are delivered to nursing homes. Any books that cant be shipped or delivered because of their condition are recycled, so nothing is wasted. Murphy has been amazed by peoples generosity.The first time I did it, I thought maybe Id get 100 or 200 books, she said. But no, I ended up with over 5,000 at the first book drive.Murphy said the donation of books has outpaced her ability to raise money to ship them. It costs $15 to ship a box of 30 books, said Murphy, noting her husbands company, Psychological Assessment Resources, donates the shipping boxes. While she can get enough books to satisfy requests, she cant raise enough money to ship them. Murphy thinks the books provide an excellent diversion for troops, when they have some down time. It is a really good way to get their mind off the heat, the bugs, she said. When theyre staying in remote places, she added, they dont have television. The books go to war zones, but shes also shipped them to such places as Japan, Germany and China. They also go to hospitals all over the country. If anyone would like to volunteer, host a collection box, or make a tax-deductible donation, email Patricia Murphy at BooksforTroops@verizon.net .Books for Troops offers peaceful respiteA new duck dynasty Finding the fastest duck in the county was determined during races at the inaugural Duck Gala hosted by Mid-Way Farm & Ranch Supply in Spring Hill.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 11 Dale Mabry entrance reopens, but more roadwork comingBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comGood weather and some fast work shortened the time southbound traffic on U.S. 41 was unable to access North Dale Mabry Highway directly. But expect some more lane closures this weekend. CSX Transportation is repairing railroad tracks at the crossing right at the start of Dale Mabry, and road closings last week forced drivers to take County Line Road or Brinson Road. Northbound traffic will get to experience the same beginning at 5 a.m. on Friday, forcing those looking to get onto U.S. 41 from North Dale Mabry Highway to once again use County Line or Brinson roads, according to Florida Department of Transportation spokeswoman Kris Carson. Part of southbound traffic was reopened by Monday for North Dale Mabry Highway, but it was limited to a single lane. Its expected to fully open by mid-week. Thats part of a number of road delays that will affect the central Pasco County area and northern Hillsborough County area over the next week. Construction continues primarily along the Veterans Expressway, which could affect traffic on its northern end, the Suncoast Parkway. However, the Suncoast is also part of the all-electric tolling conversion project where tollbooths are being eliminated and only SunPass and drivers being billed by their license plate will be accepted. To help accommodate the work, the southbound off-ramp of Van Dyke Road on the Suncoast will be closed overnight on Oct. 22 and Oct. 23. County Line Road will have closures and detours as well, with the northbound on-ramp closed Oct. 23 and Oct. 24, and the southbound off-ramp closed Oct. 24. For the Veterans, there are going to be general lane closures nightly from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. from Sunday night to Friday morning. There also is expected to be some singlelane closures near Gunn Highway this week southbound for restriping that will result in a new traffic pattern on the northbound onramp.

That prompted Slutzky to audition for the next play, hoping to make it into the chorus. Instead, he was cast as the lead a trend that would continue for the next two productions as well. The next three shows after that, however, I didnt get the part, Slutzky said. That brought me back down to where I needed to be. Otherwise, who knows, I may have skipped law school to pursue acting, and I may have ended up as your waiter somewhere. The concept of a starving actor is just not for me. La Cage aux Folles is probably more familiar to audiences through its comedy film adaptation The Birdcage, which starred Robin Williams and Nathan Lane in 1996. Slutzky plays Georges, a character similar to Williams Armand Goldman, the owner of a gay nightclub, who suddenly finds himself entertaining a visit from the very conservative family of his sons fiance.The storyline is the same as the movie, but its a totally unique experience, Slutzky said. People will laugh until their sides hurt.Slutzky openly invites friends and clients alike to his performances, but still gets surprised looks from some when they realize whos on stage. People think that because Im an attorney, I must be conservative, quiet or boring, but thats not the way many of us are at all, Slutzky said. Performing in shows is a huge time commitment, so great that Slutzky limits himself to one production each year. But even with a grueling schedule, the stage is where he feels he belongs. You know that feeling you get when youve worked inside in a freezing cold airconditioned office all day, and your car has been outside baking in the sun? he said. You get in, and you get that wonderful feeling of heat that warms you down to the bone. Thats the feeling I get when the spotlight hits me. Slutzkys all-time favorite role is Harold Hill in The Music Man, but now that hes 60, hes not exactly the right age to play the part anymore. That has opened the door for other characters, including Tevye, the Jewish father and milkman who sings his way through oppression in Fiddler on the Roof. You experience every emotion in that role, and thats particularly meaningful for me, Slutzky said. My heritage is Russian Jew, and at the time the story is set, that couldve well been my family being thrown out of Russia. After more than 40 years on the stage, Slutzky said hes still excited to see younger people in the audience. Newer generations have so many ways to be entertained, and going to the theater usually isnt high on the list. I was worried a few times that it was a dying art form, Slutzky said. But now I see a whole new generation who do have a love for Broadway musicals, and I am very happy. FAT TUESDAY! 1 Hour Massage ONLY$25 Space is Limited, Call Today! 18954 N. Dale Mabry Hwy.

And in some places, (widening) just wont work very well. You have stores and neighborhoods right up to the road. If you end up widening with new lanes, youre going to be bulldozing. Some business owners, however, disagree. In an August meeting with Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, a few members of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce expressed opposition to the road, fearing it would allow traffic to bypass their businesses. Things are going to get congested if we keep going the way were going, Hagen said. The idea that youre going to attract more business somehow as we turn the place into a parking lot is something to rethink here. A way for local businesses to get more business is to separate out the people who are not planning to stop anyway who are just wanting to get across the county and opening up the surface roads to local traffic.Following the moneyIf built, the elevated expressway would be the first privately owned toll road in Florida. Cost estimates werent shared, but using the elevated road built for Tampas Lee Roy Selmon Expressway in the early 2000s as a model, builders could be looking at a cost of $70 million per mile. That would bring the total price tag of this project to around $2.3 billion. Stanleys group, IIP, would raise the money through private sources like hedge funds, and then try to recoup that investment with the necessary profit through toll revenue collected by travelers who choose the expressway. Yet, that profit model could be troubling. Last year, toll roads in Florida collected revenue of $616 million from travelers. Thats broken down to $1.3 million per mile. Applying those numbers to this project would generate prospective revenue of $44.2 million each year. Even if IIP never spends another dime on the road, it would take the company 52 years to recoup its investment.But that might be OK. Neil Gray, director of government affairs for the International Bridge, Tunnel and Turnpike Association in Washington, D.C., says investors in projects like this know what theyre getting in to, and many are willing to play the long game. Were talking as much as 99 years, Gray said. A 99-year concession is patient money. It also allows them, from the private side, to make these things happen that might not be viable on the state level. They can pool that money together right now, and build it right now. Not accounting for inflation or other in-ROAD, from page 1 LAWYER, from page 1 Acting has been a passion for Jerry Slutzky since he was a teenager growing up in Chicago. Here, he plays Tevye, a poor Jewish milkman with five daughters, in a 2006 production of the musical classic Fiddler on the Roof. (Photo courtesy of Jerry Slutzky)creases and variables, a 99-year agreement on a Pasco elevated roadway would generate revenue of $4.4 billion doubling the initial investment.Learning from others mistakesThe FDOT, however, should be very careful about such long deals, says the U.S. Public Interest Research Group Education Fund, an independent advocacy group that has spoken out against road privatization.In a 2009 report authored by Phineas Baxandall, any agreements between the government and a private entity should clearly spell out expectations, and leave some of the decision-making like toll rates to the public. On top of that, no deal should last longer than 30 years, because even if the toll road fails, the structure will still be there, and the county will have to deal with it. Toll roads really can fail, by the way. Just look at the Camino Colombia Toll Road in Texas. Built in 2000 at a cost of $90 million, the 22-mile road between the Mexican border and Interstate 35 north of Laredo was expected to generate $9 million in its first year alone based on the traffic created by the North American Free Trade Agreement, U.S. PIRG said. Instead, the road that charged tractor-trailers $16 each earned just $500,000.Within a few years, the road was sold at auction to an investment company for $12.1 million, who in turn shut it down. The Texas Department of Transportation needed that road in operation, and it cost the government entity $20 million to buy it and reopen it.No matter who runs it, the physical structure is going to be there, and it never goes away, said Gray, adding that lessons are being learned to prevent another Camino Colombia debacle. Each time these transactions are done, the government side is getting smarter and smarter and smarter. Now you have governments that negotiate contracts that include a series of performance metrics. If you fail to maintain those level of standards, you will breach the contract, and the government gets the road for free.Something has to be doneFlorida has a big problem on its hands when it comes to roads, and it may depend on private proposals like IIPs to grow the states infrastructure. By 2020, Florida is expected to be $47 billion short in funding transportation improvements, like repaving, lane expansion and new roads. Our gas tax funding that pays for the highway system is no longer sustainable, said Christa Deason, a spokeswoman with Floridas Turnpike. People are driving less, they are using transit more, and buying hybrid cars. There is not a ton of money pouring into the coffers anymore to build these roads, or even to maintain the ones we built 50 years ago. Pasco County has hit a similar wall. Commissioners had proposed a local gas tax increase to help fund road maintenance and construction for the coming year, but it failed under public pressure. We need to look at progressive ways to move traffic on 54, Commissioner Starkey said. During its presentation last week to county officials, the Urban Land Institute the independent growth and development analytical group strongly suggested Pasco stay away from the elevated road, and instead concentrate on reducing the need for more roads in the first place. That means developing communities that have live, work and play all within walking distance, or easily accessible through public mass transit. What ULI was trying to say is that we need to reduce trips so that people dont have to go all the way across the county to get to a Wiregrass mall for instance, Pasco EDCs Hagen said. We should create shopping experiences that are close by, that people can walk to. No matter what someones position is on the proposed elevated road, the conversation must continue, he said. People are just reading a small article in the paper, or they see a 30-second thing on television, and it doesnt really explain the full complexity of how to do traffic planning, and how it fits into good community planning, Hagen said. Trying to get people engaged to create some light rather than heat, that would be a good step. If you goLa Cage aux Folles takes the stage Nov. 1-17 at the Largo Cultural Center, 105 Central Park Drive in Largo. Shows are at 8 p.m. on Thursday through Saturday, with a Sunday matinee at 2 p.m. Tickets are $29, and $16 for students. For more information, call (727) 587-6793, or visit www.LargoArts.com. Community Center, 98 First Ave., N.W. The meeting is intended for volunteers in Lutz who may want to participate in the maintenance of the medians along U.S. 41. Mike White, founder and president of the Lutz Citizens Coalition, said hes happy with efforts made to date to preserve the trees. I think its a win-win, White said. The voice of Lutz was heard loud and clear. He said the solution demonstrates great follow-through by Legg, the county, Walmart, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful, Hillsborough County and the Lutz Citizens Coalition. Everyone stepped up to the plate, White said. On another front, the Lutz Citizens Coalition recently received approval to adopt Sunset Lane, from U.S. 41 to Livingston Avenue. White said he expects the cleanups to occur about a half-dozen times a year, followed by a social gathering of the volunteers.HOUSE, from page 1 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 14

Closer LookAN ADVERTISER PROFILE by Mike Matthew Special to The Laker / Lutz NewsMichael Schipano and Fred Davis are co-owners of HairStyle Salon in Land O Lakes. Michael has the styling experience while Fred brings an experienced business perspective. Together they have created a flourishing salon experience for their clientele.Were an independently owned salon, not a chain, says Michael. We wanted to create an open and inviting atmosphere for guests along with an engaging and friendly atmosphere for our stylists to work. Michael worked as a stylist for more than 20 years in the New Tampa area before starting HairStyle Salon two years ago. I wanted to pay it forward to a new generation of stylists, says Michael. Michael personally trained under Sam Villa and Michael Cole, two big names in the industry. He provides mentoring and constant training to all of his stylists. We have extremely high-qualified stylists, yet were still reasonably priced, says Michael. Pricing is based on the demand for the stylist, not years of experience. Most of our stylists have more than 20 years experience. Michael has a strong focus on furthering the education and expertise of his stylists. They have designers come in to teach classes on-site and also attend events where they can learn from well-known designers. All of the staff attend these events, both on-site and off. They are currently participating in a Redken color rebel contest where each stylist attempts to predict the newest trends. These contest and events help to keep everyone aware of the latest techniques and focused on providing the very best service to their clientele. HairStyle Salon is an exclusively Redken salon. They have a color bar in the front of the salon where guests can work with their stylist to create the perfect hair color. A Redken topshelf list of premium colors is also available to guests. They also carry Pureology as their boutique line of sulfate free, color fade resistant, 100% vegan products for at home care. Michael and Fred are very active in the community. We try to give back and support other local businesses in every way we can, says Fred. It takes a real commitment to run an independent business today. We have to help each other. This independent attention to detail is evident in their website also. Guests can schedule an appointment online anytime day or night. They can request a specific stylist and that stylist will confirm their appointment via email or telephone. Its a very easy system to use, says Fred. Guests can also call during normal business hours to schedule an appointment. We do everything we can to provide an over-the-top experience for our guests and a great working environment for our staff, says Michael. It has to be about the experience, adds Fred.Active military, teachers and uniformed service personnel (police, fire, emergency medical, etc.) always receive a 20% discount off every service.

The improvements are in response to reports the two banks were falling short of servicing standard requirements set forth by the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement. That settlement was finalized in February 2012 with five banks, including both Bank of America and Wells Fargo, that would provide as much as $25 billion to provide loan modifications, refinancing and even payments to borrowers who lost their homes.The two banks said they would implement substantial changes in their loan modification application procedures that would improve borrower communication, simplify the document collection process, provide more direct attention to loan modification applicants and housing counselors, and ensure that the banks foreclosure attorneys are armed with the proper information regarding the borrowers loss mitigation efforts.The new procedures being implemented by Bank of America and Wells Fargo ensure that the banks will do a better job of providing Floridas distressed homeowners the timely and effective assistance they need, Bondi said in a release. The changes the banks are now implementing are in response to numerous homeowner complaints supplied by my office, as well as other attorneys general, demonstrating a disturbing pattern of potential noncompliance by the banks with the loss mitigation procedures required by the settlement.The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportMore than $35,000 in grants has been awarded to three Pasco County organizations from the Verizon Foundation. The grants were given to the Pasco Countys Mobile Medical Care Unit, AMIkids and RAP House to help those organizations support domestic violence prevention and service programs. I am extremely pleased with the commitment and generosity that the Verizon Foundation has exhibited towards Pasco County, said State Rep. Richard Corcoran, RLand O Lakes, in a release. These grants totaling $35,000 will go a long way towards helping children and families in need throughout Pasco County. The Mobile Medical Care Unit, which received $15,000, is a doctors office on wheels, which provides medical care for those in need. The staff includes a nurse practitioner, emergency medical technician and an outreach attorney. The unit travels to more than a dozen locations in Pasco, serving homeless residents who have no insurance. AMIkids was awarded $10,000 to help children with a troubled past overcome various obstacles in life to become responsible and productive people. The program began in 1969 by a juvenile court judge in Fort Lauderdale. RAP House, a runaway and youth crisis program for troubled youth more formally known as the Runaway Alternatives Project, was given $10,000. That organization serves children between the ages of 10 and 17 through Youth & Family Alternatives with a goal of helping to strengthen and provide social services to children and families in need. In all, Verizon Foundation had $100,000 in grants available. Banks reconsider foreclosure strategyVerizon provides $35,000 in charitable grants

Dr. Ricardo Prieto is the newest gastroenterologist at Florida Medical Clinic, joining the specialty as its ninth board-certified physician. He began seeing patients in September after completing his fellowship in Gastroenterology/Digestive Diseases and Nutrition from the University of South Florida. After graduating from medical school in Puerto Rico in 2007, Dr. Prieto moved to Tampa for his medical internship and residency in internal medicine at the University of South Florida. After completing his residency, he continued at USF for another three years in a gastroenterology fellowship. Dr. Prieto and his wife, Lian, live in Tampa Palms with their two children, 4-year-old Ricardo Jr. and 2-year-old Ariana. Dr. Prieto spends all of his free time with his young family and especially enjoys fishing with his son. TheLaker / LutzNews& Working together forwww.floridamedicalclinic.com 813-780-8440 GOOD HEALTH After 14 years of higher education to become a gastroenterologist, Dr. Ricardo Prieto always thought he would return to his native Puerto Rico to practice medicine. But when he completed his fellowship this summer at the University of South Florida, Dr. Prieto had an intriguing offer from Florida Medical Clinic to join its well-regarded gastroenterology practice. My wife and I had grown to love Tampa and USF a great institution that provided me excellent clinical exposure, said Dr. Prieto. So when the opportunity at FMC came about, we decided staying in Tampa was the right thing to do professionally, and for our family. As FMCs newest gastroenterologist, Dr. Prieto is building his practice by providing care to FMC patients who are hospitalized and referred during their stay to his specialty. Many chronic conditions affect the GI system, and we are called in to help patients with problems they may have, like swallowing or with their digestive system, said Dr. Prieto. Fortunately, many of the problems we see are often very treatable and we can usually improve a patients quality of life. Gastroenterology covers everything in the digestive tract, from the mouth and esophagus, to the colon and rectum. Although some patients have sudden, acute problems, most suffer from chronic diseases or disorders of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder, esophagus, stomach, small intestine and colon. Because he is a new physician, Dr. Prietos schedule is fairly open, and he can see new patients within a week or two of their call. Many patients like the care they receive from Dr. Prieto because of his sensitive nature and because as a new doctor, he is up-to-date on the newest research and treatment protocols. I am fortunate to be backed up by some of the most experienced and talented gastroenterologists in Tampa Bay, said Dr. Prieto. My patients have the benefit of the vast experiences of our team. Dr. Prieto describes himself as a doctor who listens well, with the ability to make patients feel comfortable. I understand that its not easy to talk about stool, said Dr. Prieto. I am very sensitive to my patients feelings and do everything I can to make them at ease. Gastroenterology is an incredibly interesting field that allows us to work with patients of all ages, he continues. I find it very fulfilling to help someone get better, to relieve their pain with the right treatment, and to improve their quality of life.Dr. Ricardo Prieto Is FMCs Newest Gastroenterologist Gastroenterology ServicesColon cancer Gastroesophageal reflux disease Peptic ulcer disease Gastrointestinal bleeding Inflammatory bowel disease Diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy Gastrointestinal malignancies Esophageal disease Viral hepatitis Liver disease Motility disorders Malabsorption and malnutrition Clinical nutrition educationSpecialty ServicesSmall bowel capsule endoscopy Lactose breathe testing Infusion center for inflammatory bowel disease, antibiotics, Reclast, Boniva Whos whoMeetDr. Ricardo Prieto 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 18 B y Kim S alernoSpecial to The Laker/Lutz NewsIts that time of year again, to break out the light layers and trade sipping frosty lemonade on hot afternoons for savoring hot cocoa on chilly mornings. Best of all, its that time when Mother Nature dresses her very best. If your fall spirit is kicking in and youre anxious to take in some glorious autumn foliage before its gone, consider bringing along your favorite four-legged friend. Hell enjoy seeing the sights, but most of all, hell love getting some fresh air and exercise with his favorite human. From Alabama, to Maine, to Oregon, weve rounded up some of the best places to experience fall with your pet.Southern RegionThe south is a surprisingly great place to peep at some leaves, and Alabamas Oak Mountain State Park is a great spot to enjoy the onset of fall. From Oct. 19 through the first few days of November, you and your leashed dog can surround yourself in this huge, uncrowded parks lush and brilliant vegetation, which makes a lovely contract with its dark peaks and green valleys.Mid-Atlantic RegionFamous for its spectacular fall leaf show, the Shenandoah National Park in Virginia draws thousands of tourists each year. One of only a few national parks that allows dogs on its trails, Shenandoah National Park offers some of the nations most stunning views in any season. However, its especially beautiful in midto late October, when the foliage blankets the mountains in a tapestry of red, gold and orange. Dogs are allowed on almost every trail in the park, but they must be on a leash no longer than 6 feet at all times.Northeastern RegionWhen we think of fall, we often think of those iconic images from New England. One of the best places to see the Northeast in all its autumn glory is Acadia National Park in Maine. There are a full 100 miles of pet-friendly trails in this park. Traverse diverse landscapes, including tranquil sea islands, craggy mountains and lush forests. MidwestIf youre headed west this fall, make the Kootenai National Forest in Montana a stop on your trips itinerary. You and your pooch will enjoy the beautiful and rugged wilderness setting, which is replete with vibrant colors from around late September through early October. A variety of dog-friendly trails will take you across gorges, valleys, meadows and tranquil forests.Pacific NorthwestThe towering trees and grandiose landscapes of the Pacific Northwest make its fall foliage particularly dramatic. One incredible (and incredibly dogfriendly) place to leaf peep here is the Columbia River Gorge. It sits about 25 miles from Portland, Ore. and features spectacular views from the Columbia River, which are highlighted in midto late October by brilliantly colored foliage. Along with the river, youll be treated to views of cascading waterfalls, historic bridges and cliff-side railways. Hiking trails in the Columbia Gorge National Scenic Area allow you to leaf-peep at your own pace, and your leashed pet is welcome to tag along.Rules and RegulationsIts important to note that even the most dog-friendly parks and hiking trails have strict pet rules. Dogs can frighten wildlife, disrupt nesting birds or feeding animals, and disturb other hikers. For this reason, parks typically ask that dogs be kept on leashes 6 feet or shorter, and dont allow them to roam in wilderness areas.To prevent damage and mess, most parks prohibit pets from entering buildings. As in every other public area, you must clean up after your dog, keep him reasonably quiet, and prevent him from doing any damage. Remember that your dog will be in an unfamiliar setting, and may not behave as he usually does. With a little planning, you and your pet can find the sweetest spots to welcome fall together.Kim Salerno is the president and founder of TripsWithPets.com, and is an expert in the field of pet travel.

By Michael MurilloThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentWhen a football game looks like a good match-up on paper, too often the end result is a lopsided affair that fails to live up to expectations. And last Fridays contest between Land O Lakes and Sunlake looked like a potential classic on paper. This time, the game didnt meet expectations. It beat them. At the end of the game which required overtime the Sunlake Seahawks defended their home turf, put themselves in good position in the district standings and turned away the previously unbeaten Gators with a 28-21 victory. That overtime was necessary underscores how close the game was: Neither team led by more than seven points, and they were tied at halftime, the end of the third quarter and at the end of regulation. And when Sunlake stopped Land O Lakes in overtime to clinch the win, Seahawks head coach Bill Brownings first thoughts came from the perspective of both a football coach and a football fan. It was just relief, and what a great game to be a part of, Browning said. It was a great high school football game. Both teams played their hearts out. Each team had an offensive star suiting up for the contest, and both showed up to play: Sunlakes junior running back Nathan Johnson and Land O Lakes junior quarterback James Pensyl had a hand in six of the seven touchdowns scored in the game. In the end, it was Johnsons third touchdown run in overtime that became the margin of victory, eclipsing Pensyls three scoring passes. But Browning pointed out that another player was instrumental in Sunlakes victory. Senior quarterback Esteban LeWallen didnt dominate the stat sheet, but his second start in place of injured junior Dayton Feiden was a solid one. He ran in a short touchdown and made important plays with his arm when it mattered. He came in and hit some very big passes in the course of that game that helped tremendously, Browning said. While beating an undefeated team is cause for celebration in itself, there was more at stake than one football game. With the win, Sunlake improved to 2-1 in the district while Land O Lakes fell to 1-1, keeping Sunlake alive for one of the two playoff spots. An earlier one-point loss to Springstead (currently 2-0 in district play) meant that losing to Land O Lakes would have handed both teams a better current record and tiebreakers over the Seahawks, eliminating them from playoff contention. Instead they emerged with new life, a big victory and a potential tiebreaker against their district rival. But if the team is vulnerable to a letdown after such a big win, Browning plans to use the schedule to ensure that doesnt happen. The Seahawks have a bye this coming week, and he plans to use it to get them settled after an emotional victory and focused on their final district contest against Fivay (0-2 in district play, 3-4 overall) on Nov. 1. Headed into their week off, Sunlake now has a 1,000-yard rusher in Johnson, renewed confidence and an eye on the playoffs. But to Browning, none of that matters unless they take care of business in their final district game. It kept us in the hunt. It guaranteed nothing, but it kept us in the hunt, he said about the teams recent win. Land O Lakes still has to play Springstead, and of course, we still have to beat Fivay. All we can do is keep winning and things will take care of themselves, hopefully. 813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com COMMUNITY NEWS PUBLICATIONS October 23, 2013 20 SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTS SPORTSCHECK THIS OUT Adult soccer league wants playersWith the fall season ready to commence, adult soccer players are being sought to participate in a league that plays mens, womens and coed games Sunday afternoons at CrossRoads Community Methodist Church on County Line Road in Wesley Chapel.

Every year, scammers find a way to take advantage of good deeds like giving to breast cancer research, the BBC said. But before making a donation, consumers should research the organization where the pink product claims to come from first. The widely recognized pink ribbon symbol is not regulated by an agency, and does not necessarily mean it promotes breast cancer research or charities. Some products have a pink ribbon in order to indicate that the company supports breast cancer programs, even if the companys contributions are not tied to the purchase of the specific product bearing the ribbon. While other companies give a portion of an items cost to a breast cancer organization, a consumer may need to research the claims in order to know how their donation will benefit the cause. In some cases, companies will indicate that a portion of the proceeds from the sale of a pink ribbon product will go to support breast cancer programs, but put a cap on their maximum donation. Once the maximum amount has been met, the company may continue to sell the product with the pink ribbon without alerting customers that no additional funds will be donated to breast cancer organizations. There are many companies that sell pink products where a portion of the sale price goes directly to the charity the business is supporting. While the majority of these efforts are trustworthy, the BBB recommends consumers take the following steps to double-check their efforts. Ask questions. Find out what percentage of the sales price will be donated, to which charity, and how the funds will be used. Research the business. Learn more about the business youre purchasing from by checking their BBB Business Review at BBB.org. Confirm the charitys corporate partners. Many national breast cancer charities list corporate partners and sponsors on their website. Check to make sure the business youre purchasing from is associated with the charity. Consider a direct donation. Find a charity that can be trusted at BBB.org/charity, and make a donation directly. When donating online, be sure to print the confirmation page, as many donations are tax-deductible.Be sure that pink donation is going to cancer research Bob Marley has nothing on this Chihuahua, Gidget. Gidgets proud owner is Pat Sklar of New Port Richey. Tampa Bay Veterinary Emergency Service is seeking a good home for Cookie Monster a 4-year-old lab who has had a rough life.
