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 With the last environmental hurdle removed, it’s full-speed ahead for a proposed outlet mall on State Road 56 and Interstate 75. Simon Property Group and landowner Richard E. Jacobs Group have finalized a permit with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that had left in limbo their plans to build Tampa Premium Outlets on the Cypress Creek Town Center site for nearly two years, said Carol Clarke, the assistant planning and development administrator for Pasco County. That means an outlet mall could be up and running on what is now acres of vacant land in the heart of commercial growth in Wesley Chapel by the end of 2014. “We are very excited to be moving forward on this project, and are commencing meetings with the county to determine approvals and a schedule,” said Danielle DeVita, senior vice president for development and acquisitions at Simon, in a statement. The opening, if it stays on schedule, would come seven years after the Jacobs Group received county approval for the Cypress Creek Town Center, located just north of the Hillsborough County line. Coleen Conklin, senior vice president of marketing for Premium Outlets and Simon, was not able to comment on the report ahead of publication. If plans hold up, this would put the outlet mall portion of the site well ahead of its extended construction deadline of 2021 on the 510-acre site. The original plans were toTop tennis player Isner headlines Avila fundraiserBy Michael Hinman m h i n m an@cnewspu b s.co m At one time, he led a restaurant company with more than 96,000 employees and nearly 1,500 locations. But when he wasn’t working to grow Outback Steakhouse and other restaurants that were part of Bloomin’ Brands Inc., Paul Avery’s focus was on his family. In particular, his daughters, who both suffer from a rare nerve degenerative disease called Friedreich’s ataxia. “Before we knew what they had, I never heard of Friedreich’s ataxia,” Avery said. “I didn’t even know how to pronounce it. Like many people in life, you hear of these types of diseases and challenges, and it happens to somebody else. It hit home for us with both of our kids.” Avery, who is now president and chief executive of the World of Beer chain, is sharing the story of his daughters ahead of this weekend’s Ace for a Cure tennis fundraiser hosted by Avila Golf & Country Club. It will feature Avila resident John Isner, the topranked male tennis player in the United States, and No. 14 in the world. Isner, who grew up in North Carolina, has been friends with Avery and his family since he first started to attend fundraisers benefiting Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance in Tampa. And he has seen firsthand what the condition can do. “The Averys are the absolutely nicest people, and they’ve worked really hard to conquer this disease,” Isner said. “Before I met them, I didn’t even know about Friedreich’s ataxia at all. But I’ve really gotten to know the ins and outs, and Paul and (wife) Suzanne are right on top of it.” Only 6,000 people in America have been By B.C.

At one end of the business, patrons can stop in at a service desk for Sunshine Pool Service & Repair to get their pool needs met. They also can peruse shelves in that area featuring chlorine stabilizer, alkalinity increaser and other pool chemicals and supplies. At the other end of the store, customers can find angels, snowmen, Santas and other holiday decorations at ELLA Boutique, a shop that’s dressed up for the season and well stocked with home dcor and gift items. The midsection of the store is chock full of washers, screws, garage door openers, motor oil, fasteners, paint and other stuff that’s typically found in hardware stores. The store’s eclectic mix appeals to a broad range of customers, and it has helped the store distinguish itself as being one to watch in the industry. Recently, the store snagged one of six national honors bestowed by Ace Hardware. It was named a 2013 “Coolest Hardware Store,” and the honor was delivered during Ace’s Platinum Conference in Las Vegas. The store also recently received a Beacon Award for being the best new store of less than 25,000 square feet.

Scamard, O.D.Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bayformerly Eyeglass Factory and Showroom Local residents have trusted the name The Eyeglass Factory for more than 25 years. Originally located in Lutz on U.S. Hwy. 41, the business moved seven years ago to State Road 54 in Pasco County to better serve families in Lutz, Land O’ Lakes and Wesley Chapel. This past April, Dr. Scamard relocated his practice again — this time just around the corner to the west side of Eagle Plaza, across from the Ferman dealership. Dr. David Scamard, optometrist and owner of the practice, made this move to better serve his patients with a larger showroom and expanded exam area. And with the move he gave his practice a new name — The Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bay. “There has been some confusion with our name change and we want to make sure our current and former patients understand that I am still here. The change is for the better, with more personal care & service,” said Dr. Scamard. “And of course, we still have all the patient records from the old practice.” Dr. Scamard’s new location features a beautiful showroom and more space to display its extensive collection of frames. It is one of few opticals in the area that does detailed eyeglass repairs and modifications. In. October, the practice grew again when Dr. Scamard announced that the patient records of Dr. Paul Glass, O.D. had been transferred to The Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bay. Dr. Glass had been practicing at the Sam’s Club Optical in Wesley Chapel. “It has been an exciting year for us, with the move and the addition of Dr. Glass’ patients, said Dr. Scamard. “We are thrilled to be a growing practice offering a full-scope optometric practice and quality eye care for patients of all ages – from 6 months to the elderly. We are here to take care of all your eye care needs.” Dr. Scamard, one of the most respected optometrists in north Tampa, received his doctor of optometry degree from Nova Southeastern Optometry School in Ft. Lauderdale in 1999. Breakthroughs in Treating Neuropathy! Think you have tried everything? Think again. ND Therapy may be just what you have been hoping for!

Man i on b c m an i on@cnewspu b s.co m Melanie Crowson set up her telescope in the side yard of the New River Branch Library on an evening in October and welcomed anyone with an interest to come take a peek at the stars. In a sense, the young woman from Wesley Chapel was coming full circle. “We actually used to go up to the New River Library when we were kids, and I would check out all of the astronomy books,” said the 23-year-old who aspires to become a professional astronomer. Crowson enjoys sharing her love for astronomy at the occasional community viewing nights that she offers. “It’s fun,” she said. As the viewing night approaches, she’s excited about sharing astronomy. When it’s over, it’s nice to relax. She loves introducing others to the world of stars, planets and galaxies. She also enjoys talking with people who share her fascination with celestial bodies. “You end up discussing some interesting theories,” Crowson said. The astronomy student eventually wants to work at a planetarium or an observatory, and is taking online courses to pursue those aims through American Public University. Crowson, who is a Christian, also hopes to use astronomy in connection with her spiritual life, too. She said she is getting to know God in a new light through her interest in astronomy. It’s driven her to learn more and hopes one day to help develop new scientific evidence of the existence of God. People talk about loving God with their whole heart, Crowson said. She wants to make full use of her intellectual capabilities to love God with her whole mind, too. Her fascination with celestial bodies began quite early in life. “I think I’ve always been interested, since I was a real small kid,” Crowson said. She recalls going on occasional rides during the dark early morning hours with her dad, who was delivering his newspaper route. “It was really cool. We could see all of the stars,” Crowson said. As she learned more about stars and planets, her fascination grew. Crowson, who was home-schooled, said her parents encouraged her to pursue her curiosity about the heavens. During her high school years, she and her dad ran across a book that provided instructions for building a telescope. They decided to take on the challenge. She chronicled the project in a manual she titled, “Closer To The Stars: Detailed Instructions for Building Your Own Telescope.” It took about two years to build the telescope and it cost about $1,000. It would have been cheaper to buy a telescope, but then she would have missed out on valuable lessons, Crowson said. Building the telescope helped her better understand how it works, she said. It also gave her a chance to apply math in real life. “We used math to figure out sizes, distances, making sure the corners lined up,” Crowson said. If something goes wrong with her telescope, she also knows how to fix it. “We built it so that we know where everything is. I know exactly what every screw is there for and what it does, what it’s holding together,” Crowson said. “I know which parts I can take apart. If I need to replace anything, I know everything about it.” Having community viewing nights gives Crowson a way to share what she loves and offers an opportunity to inspire others. She hopes people who come to peer through her telescope will enjoy what they see. She also hopes it piques their curiosity. “Maybe it will make them wonder: What’s out there? How was it made? Was it really a Big Bang? Make them question it a little bit more,” she said. Maybe gazing through the telescope, the experience “will bring them closer to God,” she said.

She now offers free community viewings, using the telescope she and her father made when she was in high school. (Photo by B.C. Manion)

(Photo courtesy of Patricia Serio) By Diane Kortus Publisher There was a time a few years back after my youngest left for college that I had more free time than I knew what to do with. At first it felt luxurious. I read books that had been on my nightstand for years, discovered the intimacy of small theater at Stageworks, and took my dogs on long walks morning and night. Since most of my longtime friends were still busy raising children and had little time to join me on my outings, I began to look for new friends. I soon found that making new friends was not as easy as I presumed. Most people, I discovered, are content with the friends they’ve had for years and do not have the time or the desire to invest in new friendships. So I decided to advertise for new friends — under the auspices of launching a book club. I ran a small ad in the classified section of The Laker/Lutz News and soon recruited a small group of women to meet once a month to talk about books. In February, it will be four years since our first meeting, and our club is still going strong. We are nine women, small by book club standards, but all have been members for at least two years and we’re committed to reading that month’s book and come prepared to discuss it. Together we have sliced and diced close to 50 books. Everything from Stephen King’s “11/23/63,” a 1,000-page science-fiction thriller that postulates what the world would be like today if Kennedy had not been assassinated, to “Tinkers” by Paul Harding, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a dying man’s reflection of his life as a clock repairer in rural Maine. My book club has exposed me to genres I never would have considered. I still can’t believe I read Diana Gabaldon’s “Outlander,” the first book of her immensely popular historical romance series and the first romance novel I ever read. And, as I had hoped, it wasn’t long before book club members became my friends. Our two-hour meeting soon stretched to three as we spent the first hour catching up on each other’s lives. We’ve helped each other through transitions common to women in mid life — the pride we feel as our children graduate from high school and college, and the sense of emptiness we feel when they move out. The excitement of searching and moving to a new house as we downsize. The agony of divorce and the exploration of dating. The birth of grandchildren. The satisfactions and frustrations of our jobs, where we have labored for so many years. Our discussions, both personal and those about the books we read, are lively because we share our diverse experiences and different perspectives. We range from our early 40s to mid60s. We include a postal worker, college career counselor, retired librarian, surgical nurse, paralegal, newspaper publisher, social worker and two therapists. Most of us are mothers. Some are grandmothers and one a great grandmother. Two never had children. Most of us live in Wesley Chapel and Land O’ Lakes, but others live as far away as downtown St. Petersburg. Each month we come together, gathering at a different member’s home, with the host choosing that month’s book. I’ve just finished reading our November book, Elizabeth Gilbert’s much-awaited new novel, “A Signature of All Things.” Trust me when I tell you this book is as much unlike “Eat, Pray, Love” as you can imagine. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Interestingly, my book club friends are just that. Book club friends. We seldom get together outside of our monthly meeting for the same reason I found when I began my search for new friends — our lives outside of work are filled with family obligations and activities with friends we’ve had for years. But that’s OK. The three hours we spend together each month give us the time we need to share our love for reading, and to nourish the friendships we never would have had without our book club.Starting a book club to make new friends PUBLISHER’S COLUMN

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Retailers are expected to hire between 720,000 and 780,000 seasonal workers this holiday season, according to a new report from the National Retail Federation. As job seekers start their search for those seasonal positions, the Better Business Bureau serving West Florida recommends applicants apply early, research potential employers and be cautious of fraudulent job offers. The holiday season can account for anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of a retailer’s annual sales. With so much hanging on those numbers, retailers are likely to be choosy about which candidates they hire. As a holiday job seeker, the BBB offers the following tips: Do research ahead of time. Find out which companies are offering seasonal employment opportunities, and whether that would be a place worth working. Then use BBB.org to find additional information on the company, including consumer complaints about the company, and other details. Be suspicious of online offers requesting money. Many consumers use online classifieds to search for local job openings. Scammers flock to these sites, posting fake jobs aimed at stealing money or the identities of job seekers. Never give personal information without thoroughly researching the company first.  Work where you shop. Employers want applicants that know their products well. This could make frequent shoppers an attractive choice because the company may not have to spend as much time and money training them.  Be available and flexible. Holiday hiring managers are drawn to candidates who will be available and have a flexible schedule. Seasonal employees will likely find themselves working long, inconvenient hours, and often on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve.  Put best foot forward. Job hunters need to dress their best and be prepared for the interview. This includes being familiar with the company’s brand and its products. Retail job hunters in particular need to focus on impressing potential employers with their customer service skill set, which is a must when dealing with stressed shoppers, long checkout lines, and holiday returns.Tips for finding that perfect seasonal job The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report With November designated at Hospice and Palliative Care Month, the Florida Hospital & Palliative Care Association is promoting its specialty vehicle license plates, available for an additional $25 a year over normal registration costs.Funds from the plate sales go to: Programs related to hospice, including a new model of care for very ill children, and improving and increasing access to end-of-life care for Florida’s veterans.  Education and outreach for hospice volunteers, patients, families and healthcare professionals.  Free advance directives and educational materials for the public.  A toll-free consumer help line at (800) 282-6560.  Maintenance of the group’s website.

WHOLE FOODS TEAMS UP WITH LOCAL FARMSWhole Foods Market Tampa is partnering with Sweetwater Organic Community Farm that will allow local farmers to use the store as a drop-off and pick-up point for their subscribing customers, free of charge. It’s part of a statewide effort by Whole Foods through its community-supported agriculture program. Traditionally, farm customers had to go to the farm itself or a regional drop point to get their weekly shares. Through the new program, Whole Foods is not only looking to provide convenience, but also educate customers about community-supported agriculture, and increase support for local family farms. In October, Sweetwater was the recipient of the store’s 5 percent day program where 5 percent of the day’s net sales were donated to the local nonprofit. On Oct. 29, Sweetwater raised $3,229 for the program. Sweetwater is located in Tampa where community members come together to grow fresh organic food, acquire sustainable living skills and support local agriculture. Pickups will take place at Whole Foods, 1548 N. Dale Mabry Highway, every Thursday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. For more information, call (813) 8749435.BUILDER OF THE YEARJoe Fontana, Tampa division president for Ryland Homes, was named the 2013 Builder of the Year by the Tampa Bay Builders Association.

Valerie S. Rudmin, a longtime registered cosmetologist who has specialized in permanent makeup for 26 years, has opened an Everlasting Beauty location at 3854 Flatiron Loop, Suite 102, in Wesley Chapel. It’s her third location in Florida, following Pinellas and Hernando counties, where she’s worked for more than 20 years. Rudmin also travels to Des Moines, Iowa, five times a year by invitation to work in the Midwest.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Tourism is on the rise in Florida, with more than 72.6 million people traveling to the state this year already.Visit Florida, the state’s tourism organization, said nearly 23 million people visited Florida between July and September, up 1.7 percent over the same three months in 2012. It’s the state’s largest third quarter in history.Overall, tourism is up more than 3.4 percent for the year. Gov. Rick Scott helped make the announcement last week at Busch Gardens in Tampa, adding that every 85 visitors to the state support one Florida job. “A growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy,” Scott said, in a statement. When tourists come to Florida, they’re spending more money as well. Visitors to the state have spent an average of 713 per person, totaling 51.8 billion. That was up 5.8 percent over the year before. Direct travel-related employment in Florida during the same period was up 2.8 percent, adding 29,700 jobs to the state. All of these figures are record territory for Florida, creating the largest nine-month period in the state’s history. “This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Florida’s marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand, and the dedication of the near 1.1 million Floridians who work in the state’s tourism industry,” said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Florida’s board of directors, in a release. Although Americans traveling to Florida remain the bulk of the tourists visiting in 2013, more are flying in from overseas. Nearly 2.9 million people came in from other countries in the third quarter, a jump of 10 percent. At the same time, 516,000 Canadian visitors made the trek as well, up 2.9 percent over last year.The economic impact of tourism on the state is significant, affecting everything from taxable sales, occupancy rates at hotels, rental car collections, bed taxes, and average daily room rates typically dictated by demand, said Will Seccombe, president and chief executive of Visit Florida. The average daily room rate at a hotel in Florida is now 102.69, with occupancy just under 63 percent in the quarter. Another boost to tourism is the number of Florida residents who travel within the state. During the past three months, 13.6 million Floridians did just that, making up for 42 percent of the total tourism market. That’s up 6.2 percent from last year. Florida gets big overseas boost to tourism

Hardware Conference. Just five hardware retailers received Beacons. Scott Andrews and his brother Todd own the store, which is at 18469 U.S. 41 in Lutz. Scott oversees the hardware store and Todd takes care of the pool service. Their wives, Tina and Andrea, work together to run ELLA Boutique. ELLA draws its name from the couple’s children. E and L stand for Elaina and Lilyanna, who are Todd and Andrea’s girls. L and A stand for Luke and Alexander, who are Scott and Tina’s boys. Even Tina’s mom, Alice McClain, gets into the act. She helps in the boutique. The two trophies the store recently received are on proud display on a shelf at the front of the store. Directly behind this is a portrait of the two families and historic photos of Lutz. Tina’s family has deep roots in Lutz, Scott said. Her great-grandparents were early settlers, and her grandmother was one of the first children born in the community, which dates back a century. Scott said the idea for opening their Ace store came to him while he and Tina were driving past the shopping center to attend Tina’s grandmother’s funeral. Before they took over the space, it was occupied by a Walgreens store. He and Todd already owned the pool store and were looking for a new location, so they decided to move it to the former Walgreens site and add the Ace Hardware. The boutique came a little later. Besides placing great value on their family, the couples also believe in community involvement, Scott said. “I think that is how we were raised,” Todd said. Recently, they took part in a chili cookoff and classic car show to celebrate Lutz’s 100th birthday. They also support various organizations and charities, such as Lutz Little League, local Girl Scouts and Toys for Tots. And, it’s not a bit unusual for a club or organization to drop by the boutique to ask them to donate an item to include in a gift basket, Tina said.“We applaud the team at Lutz Ace Hardware for their commitment to providing a consistently amazing shopping experience for the local community,” said Kane Calamari, vice president of retail operations and new business at Ace Hardware Corporation, in announcing the award, in a news release.It was a huge honor, the brothers said, noting their district manager, Tom Parman, nominated them for the highly coveted Ace award. Of 4,700 Ace Hardware stores nationwide, just six were honored. WHEN WAS YOUR LAST CHECKUP? www. b r i ttendental.co m 213 Crystal Grove Blvd. Lutz, FL 33548-6452 Leonard L. Britten, D.D.S.

The store has captured two national honors during recent months. diagnosed with the condition, but 1 in 100 people are carriers of the gene that can cause it, Avery said. The disease itself typically attacks the spinal cord, especially those nerves that direct muscle movement in the arms and legs. It can lead to muscle weakness, vision and hearing impairment, spine curvature, diabetes and heart problems. While pharmaceutical companies and research centers have been working on treatments and a cure for Friedreich’s ataxia because of how it relates to other diseases like Huntington’s and Parkinson’s diseases, there is still a long way to go. “Today, we have several drugs that are in advanced clinical trials,” Avery said. “They are showing to be very promising, so we’re excited about that. And the awareness of the condition continues to grow.” While the tennis event itself is on Sunday, the entire weekend actually kicks off Nov. 21 with a meet and greet and autograph session with Isner. Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m., Avila tennis director Roger Cypriano and his team will conduct a tennis Teach-A-Thon with half-hour lessons available for $25. The Spin-A-Thon begins at 9 a.m. with one-hour spin classes starting at $50, and additional hours at $25. The Mind Body-A-Thon begins at 11 a.m. with Pilates and yoga. Tennis round robin takes place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., for sponsors who spend $1,000 or more. Sunday is the tennis exhibition match featuring Isner, where gates open at 11:30 a.m. at Avila. Tickets to that match, which includes lunch, are $80 each. “I’ve always had a good time playing, and it’s convenient for me, because it’s all right here in the neighborhood,” Isner said. “And it’s for a great cause, and I’m glad that I can really help out.”Avery’s daughters are looking forward to some of the treatments for Friedreich’s ataxia making their way through clinical trials. In the meantime, however, they’re living normal lives. One is in college, and the other is finishing her senior year of high school.“They’re super kids in their attitudes and expectations, and they have a great outlook,” Avery said. “They’re not defined by the disease, and just want to get ahead in life like everyone else.” To purchase tickets or sponsorships, visit online at tinyurl.com/AceCure. For more information on the event, call Roger Cypriano at (813) 968-6792, or email him at tennis@avilagolf.com. build a 1.2 million-square-foot mall along with 600,000 square feet of retail space and 120,000 square feet for offices by 2011. Expanded plans included 350 hotel rooms, 230 apartments, and a 2,582-seat movie theater.That extension, granted in 2009, was the result of legal issues, problems with environmental permitting, and the economic recession. Yet, neither Simon nor Jacobs Group gave up, continuing work on the center they hoped would complement nearby projects like The Grove and The Shops at Wiregrass. In May 2012, Simon said it had signed an agreement with Saks Fifth Avenue to open an Off Fifth-style store in its outlet mall. It’s a retailer that is common in many of Simon’s projects worldwide. At the time, Simon expected the Saks Fifth Avenue store to open by 2014, but its permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as well as a court battle with an environmental group had yet to be resolved. A court rejected the Sierra Club’s claims in 2011 that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers improperly examined the project’s impacts to wetlands and waterways. However, it did move forward with concerns on how the project would impact the eastern indigo snake, a threatened species that moved across the land.Kenneth Dodd, a herpetologist for the Office of Endangered Species, called the site an important “wildlife corridor,” and that having its habitat “fragmented” could cause more of the snakes to die on area roads.Now it’s just up to Pasco County officials to approve final site plans, and sign the permits necessary to get construction going. Pasco County’s Clarke said her staff met with Simon Oct. 29, and “will be working with them to develop a coordinated schedule and get this project going.” Simon, headquartered in Indianapolis, owns or has an ownership interest stake in more than 325 retail properties in North America and Asia, comprising of 242 million square feet. In the past quarter alone, Simon has opened three new outlet malls in Toronto, St. Louis and Korea. It also began construction on four more in Charlotte, N.C.; Eagen, Minn.; Mirabel, Quebec; and Vancouver, B.C., according to the company’s corporate filings.ISNER, from page 1 MALL, from page 1 If you goWHAT: Ace for a Cure tennis fundraiser featuring John Isner WHO: Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance WHEN: Nov. 24, 11:30 a.m. WHERE: Avila Golf & Country Club, 943 Guisando De Avila, Tampa COST: $80 INFO: tinyurl.com/AceCure Paul Avery, the former chief operating officer of Outback Steakhouse’s parent company, Bloomin’ Brands Inc., and the current president and chief executive of World of Beer, has been a key figure for years with the Friedreich’s Ataxia Research Alliance.

www.LakerLutzNews.com November 20, 201317 Chance billboard introduces fitness studio to new homeBy Michael Hinman mhinman@cnewspubs.com The ink was barely dry on the sales agreement, and Samantha Taylor was already moving into her new Pure Health and Fitness Studios location on Knight Road in Land O’ Lakes. That’s because the longtime local trainer doesn’t like to waste time, whether it’s helping to get a body in shape, or to provide a new 3,700-square-foot facility for her clients. Yet, Taylor hasn’t always enjoyed that level of discipline. “I used to be a major binger,” Taylor said. “I would binge on thousands of calories at a time, and that progressed for quite a few years, all in the middle of my professional training career.” At the time, Taylor was a physical trainer at Lifestyle Family Fitness Center. And while she was one of the top trainers in the company, Taylor had a nickname she didn’t really much care for: “the chunky trainer.” “I had gained about 20 pounds,” she said. “I know that doesn’t sound like a lot, but for a personal trainer, that is like gaining 50 or 60.” But that all changed a decade ago when she discovered the Bible. “I really started to get the revelation that the Bible talks about that your body is a temple of God,” Taylor said. “For me, it was life-changing. It was just like a light switch went on inside my head, and I suddenly understood that my body was a gift, and I really didn’t have the right to abuse it.” It was also that same time Taylor decided to strike out on her own, starting Pure Health, and working with women to build their bodily temples as well. Taylor admits that because it helped her, spirituality is a part of her program. But it doesn’t mean she attracts only Christian clients. “We don’t force it on people, but those who want it, it’s in there,” she said. “That is a reason why people seek me out. They want to work with someone who works with not just the body, but they like the mind, spirit and the body all together.” Since starting Pure Health, Taylor has hosted clients in a few smaller locations she rented out. And she was happy doing that, until one day last summer she saw a billboard while on her way to Busch Gardens. “Something in me knew I had to turn around and get that phone number,” Taylor said. “And when I finally saw the building, it was everything I had dreamed about. We now have rooms for seminars, and eventually even a cooking class. We are lakeside on an acre of land. I get teared up every time I think about it.” The two-story building is off State Road 54, not far from its intersection with Land O’ Lakes Boulevard, but a bit hidden behind trees and a small lake. Taylor said she is turning it into a place where women can come and get fit without feeling intimidated by the bigger box gyms. Construction is already underway inside the building, which Taylor expects to have done by the end of the year. And right now, only her six trainers even know about the new location. They got their first look just last week, welcomed by hundreds of rose petals sprinkled up the main walkway. The boot camp portion of her program will open at the new location by Thanksgiving, set up in what is an air-conditioned former garage. The big doors opening up to it are still there, which Taylor says can be opened in cooler weather to let in some fresh air. Taylor’s program is straightforward: “If you don’t eat certain foods, you will not have cravings.” “I think that is the trap that so many people find themselves in,” she said. “They’re trapped in cravings and impulses and desires that seem to overtake them. And they don’t know how to rein it in.” The new location for Pure Health opens Jan. 1 at 2206 Knight Road in Land O’ Lakes. In the meantime, to reach Taylor, call (813) 909-4939, or visit her website at PureHealthStudios.com. Taylor said she found her new location thanks to a billboard she saw on her way to Busch Gardens a few months back.

www.LakerLutzNews.com November 20, 201319 The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report With homeowners across the country facing what he calls “astronomical” flood insurance rate increases, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis has introduced a new bill in Congress he says will help. The rate increases, according to Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, are a result of reforms made to address the solvency and affordability of the National Flood Insurance Program, which protects homeowners from flood losses. He expects premiums to double, and for some to increase ten-fold, in the Tampa Bay area. “Congress must find a long-term solution to ensure flood insurance remains affordable for both current and future homeowners,” Bilirakis said in a letter to constituents. Bilirakis has introduced what he calls the Homeowners Flood Insurance Relief Act, designed to cap annual insurance program premiums at the end of a 10-year phase-in to no more than the appraised value of the structure at the time of purchase, divided by 30 — which represents the typical time span of a homeowners mortgage. It also would allow homeowners to pay premiums on a monthly basis. “To date, no other Congressional proposal truly addresses the affordability and sustainability of the flood insurance program,” Bilirakis said. Although the reforms made to the federal program were not intended to cause major increases, some Floridians have been quoted annual premiums of $10,000 or more, according to Bilirakis. “This is an untenable financial burden during these difficult economic times that will negatively impact our already fragile housing market, and requires correction,” he said. The federal insurance program has generally been able to cover the cost of flood losses incurred by policyholders, Bilirakis said. However, the 2005 hurricane season brought unprecedented flood damage, with hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma causing $18 billion in debt. Hurricane Sandy in 2012 made it worse, with debt from the program jumping to $24 billion. Congress opted to reform, since losing the program altogether could deter financial institutions from writing mortgages in floodprone areas like Florida, Bilirakis said. “Congress cannot afford to kick the can down the road by just postponing the rate increases,” Bilirakis said, adding it’s “a path it too often defaults to.”Bilirakis introduces flood insurance reform Music to their ears John McColley, a kindergarten teaching assistant at Orange Grove Drive’s Corbett Preparatory School, shows students in the prekindergarten class how longer strings of his harp make lower sounds, and shorter strings produce higher pitch sounds.

www.LakerLutzNews.com November 20, 201320 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community SportsCommunity Sports Sunlake, Wharton football squads fall in playoffsBy Michael Murillo The Laker/Lutz News Correspondent High school football teams fight all year for a shot at the district title. If they fall short, the backup plan is to be district runner-up, because that spot (like the title winner) earns a trip to the playoffs. Neither the Wharton Wildcats nor the Sunlake Seahawks were able to achieve their top goal of a district title, but both earned a hard-fought runner-up spot to earn a playoff berth. And both battled right to the end in the first round of the playoffs, before falling to their opponents. Neither team had an easy road to earning second place in the district. For Wharton, two straight district losses put them in a must-win situation at the end of the year against Bloomingdale. The team had faced a big deficit heading into the final period, but scored 22 unanswered points and came away with a 30-23 win, a tie-breaker over the Bulls and that coveted runner-up spot in Class 8A-District 6. Sunlake dropped its first district game, then rallied to win their next three to earn their second place finish. A tough 28-21 win over Land O’ Lakes in October proved to be the difference between the two teams, and the difference between second and third place. In the end, the Seahawks’ 3-1 record was good enough for runner-up status in Class 6A-District 6. While those were satisfying finishes for each school, it was really just the end of the regular season: Both teams then entered a separate 32-team regional tournament to determine the state champion. But for both clubs, the beginning of their playoffs would also be the end. Wharton fell in their playoff opener to Orlando’s Dr. Phillips Panthers, 3710, while Sunlake was a field goal short to the Gainesville Hurricanes, 17-14. Sunlake Head Coach Bill Browning explained that, despite the loss, he was impressed with the way his team played. “Gainesville’s a very talented team. They have a ton of speed,” he said. “We played exceptionally well. Physically, we beat them up. The effort was fantastic. Close ballgame.” The Seahawks out-gained the Hurricanes and had a lead late in the game, but some untimely penalties and a late surge by Gainesville ended their season. For Wharton, although the final score indicated the game wasn’t close, it really didn’t break open until the final period. The Wildcats were behind 14-3 at halftime and still within two scores in the fourth quarter. Head Coach David Mitchell said it was a few game-changing snaps and some self-inflicted wounds that turned the tide against them. “They scored based on big plays,” he said. “We had problems with penalties. That’s what hurt us a lot.” While he didn’t want Wharton to end their year with a loss, Mitchell believes they had a good season and already is looking toward next year. He has a number of returning players, and several of them will participate in other high school sports, which he said will help them on the gridiron. In 2014, the key will be keeping them on top of their grades (and eligible to play sports), focused and ready for the new season. Browning has his team looking forward to 2014 as well. He said the Seahawks have plenty of good talent returning — especially on offense — and they’ll be able to use some of the school’s junior varsity players, who enjoyed an 8-0 season this year. Looking back, the coaches know that making the playoffs is an achievement in itself, both for themselves and the players who work so hard to get there. And for those graduating, many can look back on not just a good year, but a good career at their respective schools. “For some of those players, it’s the third opportunity (to participate in the playoffs) in three years for them. That’s pretty good,” Mitchell said. And Browning agrees. “For the kids coming back we’ll have to learn from it (the playoff loss), and for the seniors, we had a great senior bunch. They’re the winning-est senior class in the short history of the school.” Dirty Girl runDirt Girl, a 5-kilometer obstacle run for women of all ages and athletic abilities, takes place Nov. 23 at 17951 Hamilton Road, Dade City.

Of course, they were able to say the same thing last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. In fact, in the five years the school has had a volleyball program, they’re a perfect 5-for-5 in district titles. But while the district results were always the same, so were the regional ones: The previous four years found the team 0-4 when it came to an elusive regional title. Until this year. The Warriors finally claimed their first Class 7A regional crown by besting the Lake Nona Lions on Nov. 9 in three sets. That win took them to the state semifinals for the first time in school history, where they fell to Gulf Coast in a tough five-set match. But while their season ended with a loss, the team is proud of their accomplishments in claiming a regional title and advancing farther than any previous Steinbrenner volleyball team before them. “They were the first group in school history to attain that goal, and I think that was most exciting for them,” said Head Coach Laura Stegenga, who has coached for several years, but just completed her second season with Steinbrenner. This squad stood out, she said, because the school’s team historically is a young team. Yet they benefited from having a number of juniors and seniors to provide experience this season. And with 10 juniors helping lead the way, Stegenga can also look forward to coaching a large portion of this year’s successful team again in 2014. One of those players, Avery Bradshaw, admits the state semifinal was a tough loss after coming so far this season. But the junior, now in her third year with the Steinbrenner volleyball team, soon recognized the importance of the school’s first regional title. “We wanted to be the first year (the 2013 squad) on the banner in the gym that said we are regional champions,” Bradshaw said. “That was a great accomplishment for us.” She was also consoled by the outpouring of support the team received from the school. Originally unsure of the reaction she’d receive and hoping nobody was disappointed in the team following the loss, Bradshaw said she was grateful to see students and faculty — including some she didn’t know were even following the team’s success — offering congratulations and letting her know how proud they were of her and her team. “That made everything a lot better,” she said. While the team can look back on 2013 as the best volleyball season in school history, Stegenga knows that there will be new challenges next season. Each year the team wants to live up to the school’s history of claiming the district title, but she admits that winning a regional title and coming so close to the state finals has raised the bar when it comes to team expectations. The matchups, Stegenga said, will determine how challenging their draw is in the postseason, but she believes that this year’s experience and the desire to improve will provide a lot of motivation for her returning players. However, the moment they claimed the first regional title in school history is one that will stick with her. “I remember that game point of the third set against Lake Nona (in the regional final) and the girls’ celebration and the tears. It was very powerful,” Stegenga said. “That’s really the reason why I coach, is to have moments like that with the players.” Steinbrenner volleyball reaches state semis The Warriors celebrate after a set win, during Steinbrenner High School’s recent volleyball playoff run that named them regional champions.

Maximum strength analgesic creme for temporary relief from: € Joint and Muscle soreness € Arthritis € Back aches THG-13903 SPORTS The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Abbey Duncan of Wesley Chapel, and Kara Wilkins of Land O’ Lakes, both led their respective high school teams to their best state finishes ever. Both are freshmen, and were the respective high-point finishers for their high schools. Both also train together at the Clearwater Aquatic Team at Hunter’s Green Country Club in New Tampa. In the preliminaries, Duncan seeded fifth, and finished the 200meter freestyle at 1:58.84, a lifetime best, earning a second-seed finish going into the finals. In the 100-meter fly, both Duncan and Wilkins competed, with Duncan taking second seed with a 0:56.57, while Wilkins finished under 1 minute for the first time, with a 0:59.82, and taking the 11th seed. Wilkins also swam the 100-meter backstroke, going 0:59.69 for the 12th spot going into the finals.Duncan swam her 200-meter freestyle to gold, pulling away in the last 50 yards for a new lifetime best of 1:50.82. During the finals for the 100-meter fly, Duncan finished with a lifetime best there at 0:56.23, good enough for the silver behind senior Grace DiMeo, who both battled for the first 75 yards. Wilkins came back in the 100-meter fly, and once again finished under a minute, this time with a 0:58.74. She would take that success into the backstroke, going head-tohead with senior Courtney DeVeny, with the older girl winning by 0:0.15 seconds. However, Wilkins would have her best time ever in her first National Collegiate Scouting Association Junior Nationals cut with a time of 0:58.45.

The more models you tour, the better opportunity to win!*US Hwy 41, Land O Lakes 6 miles north of SR 54 By Michael Hinmanm h i n m an@cnewspub s.co mWith the last environmental hurdle removed, its full-speed ahead for a proposed outlet mall on State Road 56 and Interstate 75. Simon Property Group and landowner Richard E. Jacobs Group have finalized a permit with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers that had left in limbo their plans to build Tampa Premium Outlets on the Cypress Creek Town Center site for nearly two years, said Carol Clarke, the assistant planning and development administrator for Pasco County. That means an outlet mall could be up and running on what is now acres of vacant land in the heart of commercial growth in Wesley Chapel by the end of 2014. We are very excited to be moving forward on this project, and are commencing meetings with the county to determine approvals and a schedule, said Danielle DeVita, senior vice president for development and acquisitions at Simon, in a statement. The opening, if it stays on schedule, would come seven years after the Jacobs Group received county approval for the Cypress Creek Town Center, located just north of the Hillsborough County line. Coleen Conklin, senior vice president of marketing for Premium Outlets and Simon, was not able to comment on the report ahead of publication. If plans hold up, this would put the outlet mall portion of the site well ahead of its extended construction deadline of 2021 on the 510-acre site. The original plans were toTop tennis player Isner headlines Avila fundraiserBy Michael Hinmanm h i n m an@cnewspub s.co mAt one time, he led a restaurant company with more than 96,000 employees and nearly 1,500 locations. But when he wasnt working to grow Outback Steakhouse and other restaurants that were part of Bloomin Brands Inc., Paul Averys focus was on his family. In particular, his daughters, who both suffer from a rare nerve degenerative disease called Friedreichs ataxia. Before we knew what they had, I never heard of Friedreichs ataxia, Avery said. I didnt even know how to pronounce it. Like many people in life, you hear of these types of diseases and challenges, and it happens to somebody else. It hit home for us with both of our kids. Avery, who is now president and chief executive of the World of Beer chain, is sharing the story of his daughters ahead of this weekends Ace for a Cure tennis fundraiser hosted by Avila Golf & Country Club. It will feature Avila resident John Isner, the topranked male tennis player in the United States, and No. 14 in the world. Isner, who grew up in North Carolina, has been friends with Avery and his family since he first started to attend fundraisers benefiting Friedreichs Ataxia Research Alliance in Tampa. And he has seen firsthand what the condition can do. The Averys are the absolutely nicest people, and theyve worked really hard to conquer this disease, Isner said. Before I met them, I didnt even know about Friedreichs ataxia at all. But Ive really gotten to know the ins and outs, and Paul and (wife) Suzanne are right on top of it. Only 6,000 people in America have been By B.C. Manionb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mThe Ace Hardware store in Lutz is not exactly your mom and pop hardware shop. At one end of the business, patrons can stop in at a service desk for Sunshine Pool Service & Repair to get their pool needs met. They also can peruse shelves in that area featuring chlorine stabilizer, alkalinity increaser and other pool chemicals and supplies. At the other end of the store, customers can find angels, snowmen, Santas and other holiday decorations at ELLA Boutique, a shop thats dressed up for the season and well stocked with home dcor and gift items. The midsection of the store is chock full of washers, screws, garage door openers, motor oil, fasteners, paint and other stuff thats typically found in hardware stores. The stores eclectic mix appeals to a broad range of customers, and it has helped the store distinguish itself as being one to watch in the industry. Recently, the store snagged one of six national honors bestowed by Ace Hardware. It was named a 2013 Coolest Hardware Store, and the honor was delivered during Aces Platinum Conference in Las Vegas. The store also recently received a Beacon Award for being the best new store of less than 25,000 square feet. Beacons are bestowed as part of a national industry awards program developed by The Hardware Connection magazine and The John Isner, currently the top-ranked male tennis player in the United States, takes a break on the Avila Golf & Country Club tennis courts while getting ready for the Ace for a Cure tennis fundraiser on Nov. 24 that will benefit Friedreichs Ataxia Research Alliance.

Scamard, O.D.Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bayformerly Eyeglass Factory and ShowroomLocal residents have trusted the name The Eyeglass Factory for more than 25 years. Originally located in Lutz on U.S. Hwy. 41, the business moved seven years ago to State Road 54 in Pasco County to better serve families in Lutz, Land O Lakes and Wesley Chapel. This past April, Dr. Scamard relocated his practice again this time just around the corner to the west side of Eagle Plaza, across from the Ferman dealership. Dr. David Scamard, optometrist and owner of the practice, made this move to better serve his patients with a larger showroom and expanded exam area. And with the move he gave his practice a new name The Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bay. There has been some confusion with our name change and we want to make sure our current and former patients understand that I am still here. The change is for the better, with more personal care & service, said Dr. Scamard. And of course, we still have all the patient records from the old practice. Dr. Scamards new location features a beautiful showroom and more space to display its extensive collection of frames. It is one of few opticals in the area that does detailed eyeglass repairs and modifications. In. October, the practice grew again when Dr. Scamard announced that the patient records of Dr. Paul Glass, O.D. had been transferred to The Eye Care Professionals of Tampa Bay. Dr. Glass had been practicing at the Sams Club Optical in Wesley Chapel. It has been an exciting year for us, with the move and the addition of Dr. Glass patients, said Dr. Scamard. We are thrilled to be a growing practice offering a full-scope optometric practice and quality eye care for patients of all ages from 6 months to the elderly. We are here to take care of all your eye care needs. Dr. Scamard, one of the most respected optometrists in north Tampa, received his doctor of optometry degree from Nova Southeastern Optometry School in Ft. Lauderdale in 1999.

Drinking lots of water and eating healthy fruits and vegetables can keep you healthy this winter. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of money in the bank for the new year. -StatePointFive tips for making the holidays more affordableBy B.C. Mani onb c m ani on@cnewspub s.co mMelanie Crowson set up her telescope in the side yard of the New River Branch Library on an evening in October and welcomed anyone with an interest to come take a peek at the stars. In a sense, the young woman from Wesley Chapel was coming full circle. We actually used to go up to the New River Library when we were kids, and I would check out all of the astronomy books, said the 23-year-old who aspires to become a professional astronomer. Crowson enjoys sharing her love for astronomy at the occasional community viewing nights that she offers. Its fun, she said. As the viewing night approaches, shes excited about sharing astronomy. When its over, its nice to relax. She loves introducing others to the world of stars, planets and galaxies. She also enjoys talking with people who share her fascination with celestial bodies. You end up discussing some interesting theories, Crowson said. The astronomy student eventually wants to work at a planetarium or an observatory, and is taking online courses to pursue those aims through American Public University. Crowson, who is a Christian, also hopes to use astronomy in connection with her spiritual life, too. She said she is getting to know God in a new light through her interest in astronomy. Its driven her to learn more and hopes one day to help develop new scientific evidence of the existence of God. People talk about loving God with their whole heart, Crowson said. She wants to make full use of her intellectual capabilities to love God with her whole mind, too. Her fascination with celestial bodies began quite early in life. I think Ive always been interested, since I was a real small kid, Crowson said. She recalls going on occasional rides during the dark early morning hours with her dad, who was delivering his newspaper route. It was really cool. We could see all of the stars, Crowson said. As she learned more about stars and planets, her fascination grew. Crowson, who was home-schooled, said her parents encouraged her to pursue her curiosity about the heavens. During her high school years, she and her dad ran across a book that provided instructions for building a telescope. They decided to take on the challenge. She chronicled the project in a manual she titled, Closer To The Stars: Detailed Instructions for Building Your Own Telescope. It took about two years to build the telescope and it cost about $1,000. It would have been cheaper to buy a telescope, but then she would have missed out on valuable lessons, Crowson said. Building the telescope helped her better understand how it works, she said. It also gave her a chance to apply math in real life. We used math to figure out sizes, distances, making sure the corners lined up, Crowson said. If something goes wrong with her telescope, she also knows how to fix it. We built it so that we know where everything is. I know exactly what every screw is there for and what it does, what its holding together, Crowson said. I know which parts I can take apart. If I need to replace anything, I know everything about it. Having community viewing nights gives Crowson a way to share what she loves and offers an opportunity to inspire others. She hopes people who come to peer through her telescope will enjoy what they see. She also hopes it piques their curiosity. Maybe it will make them wonder: Whats out there? How was it made? Was it really a Big Bang? Make them question it a little bit more, she said. Maybe gazing through the telescope, the experience will bring them closer to God, she said. If you would like to know more about Melanie Crowsons community viewings, email her at scopegal617@gmail.com.Young woman encourages others to gaze at stars Melanie Crowsons interest in astronomy began when she was very young. She now offers free community viewings, using the telescope she and her father made when she was in high school. (Photo by B.C. Manion)

These two 90-something women have accumulated a combined total of more than 72 years of membership and community service in the club. (Photo courtesy of Patricia Serio) By Diane KortusPublisherThere was a time a few years back after my youngest left for college that I had more free time than I knew what to do with. At first it felt luxurious. I read books that had been on my nightstand for years, discovered the intimacy of small theater at Stageworks, and took my dogs on long walks morning and night. Since most of my longtime friends were still busy raising children and had little time to join me on my outings, I began to look for new friends. I soon found that making new friends was not as easy as I presumed. Most people, I discovered, are content with the friends theyve had for years and do not have the time or the desire to invest in new friendships. So I decided to advertise for new friends under the auspices of launching a book club. I ran a small ad in the classified section of The Laker/Lutz News and soon recruited a small group of women to meet once a month to talk about books. In February, it will be four years since our first meeting, and our club is still going strong. We are nine women, small by book club standards, but all have been members for at least two years and were committed to reading that months book and come prepared to discuss it. Together we have sliced and diced close to 50 books. Everything from Stephen Kings /23/63, a 1,000-page science-fiction thriller that postulates what the world would be like today if Kennedy had not been assassinated, to Tinkers by Paul Harding, a Pulitzer Prize-winning novel about a dying mans reflection of his life as a clock repairer in rural Maine. My book club has exposed me to genres I never would have considered. I still cant believe I read Diana Gabaldons Outlander, the first book of her immensely popular historical romance series and the first romance novel I ever read. And, as I had hoped, it wasnt long before book club members became my friends. Our two-hour meeting soon stretched to three as we spent the first hour catching up on each others lives. Weve helped each other through transitions common to women in mid life the pride we feel as our children graduate from high school and college, and the sense of emptiness we feel when they move out. The excitement of searching and moving to a new house as we downsize. The agony of divorce and the exploration of dating. The birth of grandchildren. The satisfactions and frustrations of our jobs, where we have labored for so many years. Our discussions, both personal and those about the books we read, are lively because we share our diverse experiences and different perspectives. We range from our early 40s to mid60s. We include a postal worker, college career counselor, retired librarian, surgical nurse, paralegal, newspaper publisher, social worker and two therapists. Most of us are mothers. Some are grandmothers and one a great grandmother. Two never had children. Most of us live in Wesley Chapel and Land O Lakes, but others live as far away as downtown St. Petersburg. Each month we come together, gathering at a different members home, with the host choosing that months book. Ive just finished reading our November book, Elizabeth Gilberts much-awaited new novel, A Signature of All Things. Trust me when I tell you this book is as much unlike Eat, Pray, Love as you can imagine. I recommend it wholeheartedly. Interestingly, my book club friends are just that. Book club friends. We seldom get together outside of our monthly meeting for the same reason I found when I began my search for new friends our lives outside of work are filled with family obligations and activities with friends weve had for years. But thats OK. The three hours we spend together each month give us the time we need to share our love for reading, and to nourish the friendships we never would have had without our book club.Starting a book club to make new friends PUBLISHERS COLUMN

As job seekers start their search for those seasonal positions, the Better Business Bureau serving West Florida recommends applicants apply early, research potential employers and be cautious of fraudulent job offers. The holiday season can account for anywhere from 20 to 40 percent of a retailers annual sales. With so much hanging on those numbers, retailers are likely to be choosy about which candidates they hire. As a holiday job seeker, the BBB offers the following tips: Do research ahead of time. Find out which companies are offering seasonal employment opportunities, and whether that would be a place worth working. Then use BBB.org to find additional information on the company, including consumer complaints about the company, and other details. Be suspicious of online offers requesting money. Many consumers use online classifieds to search for local job openings. Scammers flock to these sites, posting fake jobs aimed at stealing money or the identities of job seekers. Never give personal information without thoroughly researching the company first. Work where you shop. Employers want applicants that know their products well. This could make frequent shoppers an attractive choice because the company may not have to spend as much time and money training them. Be available and flexible. Holiday hiring managers are drawn to candidates who will be available and have a flexible schedule. Seasonal employees will likely find themselves working long, inconvenient hours, and often on holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve. Put best foot forward. Job hunters need to dress their best and be prepared for the interview. This includes being familiar with the companys brand and its products. Retail job hunters in particular need to focus on impressing potential employers with their customer service skill set, which is a must when dealing with stressed shoppers, long checkout lines, and holiday returns.Tips for finding that perfect seasonal jobThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportWith November designated at Hospice and Palliative Care Month, the Florida Hospital & Palliative Care Association is promoting its specialty vehicle license plates, available for an additional $25 a year over normal registration costs.Funds from the plate sales go to: Programs related to hospice, including a new model of care for very ill children, and improving and increasing access to end-of-life care for Floridas veterans.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportTourism is on the rise in Florida, with more than 72.6 million people traveling to the state this year already.Visit Florida, the states tourism organization, said nearly 23 million people visited Florida between July and September, up 1.7 percent over the same three months in 2012. Its the states largest third quarter in history.Overall, tourism is up more than 3.4 percent for the year. Gov. Rick Scott helped make the announcement last week at Busch Gardens in Tampa, adding that every 85 visitors to the state support one Florida job. A growing tourism industry equates to more jobs for Florida families and a stronger economy, Scott said, in a statement. When tourists come to Florida, theyre spending more money as well. Visitors to the state have spent an average of 713 per person, totaling 51.8 billion. That was up 5.8 percent over the year before. Direct travel-related employment in Florida during the same period was up 2.8 percent, adding 29,700 jobs to the state. All of these figures are record territory for Florida, creating the largest nine-month period in the states history. This continued momentum is a testament to the strength of Visit Floridas marketing efforts, the power of the Sunshine State brand, and the dedication of the near 1.1 million Floridians who work in the states tourism industry, said Tammy Gustafson, chair of Visit Floridas board of directors, in a release. Although Americans traveling to Florida remain the bulk of the tourists visiting in 2013, more are flying in from overseas. Nearly 2.9 million people came in from other countries in the third quarter, a jump of 10 percent. At the same time, 516,000 Canadian visitors made the trek as well, up 2.9 percent over last year.The economic impact of tourism on the state is significant, affecting everything from taxable sales, occupancy rates at hotels, rental car collections, bed taxes, and average daily room rates typically dictated by demand, said Will Seccombe, president and chief executive of Visit Florida. The average daily room rate at a hotel in Florida is now 102.69, with occupancy just under 63 percent in the quarter. Another boost to tourism is the number of Florida residents who travel within the state. During the past three months, 13.6 million Floridians did just that, making up for 42 percent of the total tourism market. Thats up 6.2 percent from last year. Florida gets big overseas boost to tourism

Hardware Conference. Just five hardware retailers received Beacons. Scott Andrews and his brother Todd own the store, which is at 18469 U.S. 41 in Lutz. Scott oversees the hardware store and Todd takes care of the pool service. Their wives, Tina and Andrea, work together to run ELLA Boutique. ELLA draws its name from the couples children. E and L stand for Elaina and Lilyanna, who are Todd and Andreas girls. L and A stand for Luke and Alexander, who are Scott and Tinas boys. Even Tinas mom, Alice McClain, gets into the act. She helps in the boutique. The two trophies the store recently received are on proud display on a shelf at the front of the store. Directly behind this is a portrait of the two families and historic photos of Lutz. Tinas family has deep roots in Lutz, Scott said. Her great-grandparents were early settlers, and her grandmother was one of the first children born in the community, which dates back a century. Scott said the idea for opening their Ace store came to him while he and Tina were driving past the shopping center to attend Tinas grandmothers funeral. Before they took over the space, it was occupied by a Walgreens store. He and Todd already owned the pool store and were looking for a new location, so they decided to move it to the former Walgreens site and add the Ace Hardware. The boutique came a little later. Besides placing great value on their family, the couples also believe in community involvement, Scott said. I think that is how we were raised, Todd said. Recently, they took part in a chili cookoff and classic car show to celebrate Lutzs 100th birthday. They also support various organizations and charities, such as Lutz Little League, local Girl Scouts and Toys for Tots. And, its not a bit unusual for a club or organization to drop by the boutique to ask them to donate an item to include in a gift basket, Tina said.We applaud the team at Lutz Ace Hardware for their commitment to providing a consistently amazing shopping experience for the local community, said Kane Calamari, vice president of retail operations and new business at Ace Hardware Corporation, in announcing the award, in a news release.It was a huge honor, the brothers said, noting their district manager, Tom Parman, nominated them for the highly coveted Ace award. Of 4,700 Ace Hardware stores nationwide, just six were honored. WHEN WAS YOUR LAST CHECKUP? www.b r i ttendental.co m213 Crystal Grove Blvd. Lutz, FL 33548-6452 Leonard L. Britten, D.D.S. Nicholas L.

The store has captured two national honors during recent months. diagnosed with the condition, but 1 in 100 people are carriers of the gene that can cause it, Avery said. The disease itself typically attacks the spinal cord, especially those nerves that direct muscle movement in the arms and legs. It can lead to muscle weakness, vision and hearing impairment, spine curvature, diabetes and heart problems. While pharmaceutical companies and research centers have been working on treatments and a cure for Friedreichs ataxia because of how it relates to other diseases like Huntingtons and Parkinsons diseases, there is still a long way to go. Today, we have several drugs that are in advanced clinical trials, Avery said. They are showing to be very promising, so were excited about that. And the awareness of the condition continues to grow. While the tennis event itself is on Sunday, the entire weekend actually kicks off Nov. 21 with a meet and greet and autograph session with Isner. Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m., Avila tennis director Roger Cypriano and his team will conduct a tennis Teach-A-Thon with half-hour lessons available for $25. The Spin-A-Thon begins at 9 a.m. with one-hour spin classes starting at $50, and additional hours at $25. The Mind Body-A-Thon begins at 11 a.m. with Pilates and yoga. Tennis round robin takes place from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m., for sponsors who spend $1,000 or more. Sunday is the tennis exhibition match featuring Isner, where gates open at 11:30 a.m. at Avila. Tickets to that match, which includes lunch, are $80 each. Ive always had a good time playing, and its convenient for me, because its all right here in the neighborhood, Isner said. And its for a great cause, and Im glad that I can really help out.Averys daughters are looking forward to some of the treatments for Friedreichs ataxia making their way through clinical trials. In the meantime, however, theyre living normal lives. One is in college, and the other is finishing her senior year of high school.Theyre super kids in their attitudes and expectations, and they have a great outlook, Avery said. Theyre not defined by the disease, and just want to get ahead in life like everyone else. To purchase tickets or sponsorships, visit online at tinyurl.com/AceCure. For more information on the event, call Roger Cypriano at (813) 968-6792, or email him at tennis@avilagolf.com. build a 1.2 million-square-foot mall along with 600,000 square feet of retail space and 120,000 square feet for offices by 2011. Expanded plans included 350 hotel rooms, 230 apartments, and a 2,582-seat movie theater.That extension, granted in 2009, was the result of legal issues, problems with environmental permitting, and the economic recession. Yet, neither Simon nor Jacobs Group gave up, continuing work on the center they hoped would complement nearby projects like The Grove and The Shops at Wiregrass. In May 2012, Simon said it had signed an agreement with Saks Fifth Avenue to open an Off Fifth-style store in its outlet mall. Its a retailer that is common in many of Simons projects worldwide. At the time, Simon expected the Saks Fifth Avenue store to open by 2014, but its permit from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers as well as a court battle with an environmental group had yet to be resolved. A court rejected the Sierra Clubs claims in 2011 that the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers improperly examined the projects impacts to wetlands and waterways. However, it did move forward with concerns on how the project would impact the eastern indigo snake, a threatened species that moved across the land.Kenneth Dodd, a herpetologist for the Office of Endangered Species, called the site an important wildlife corridor, and that having its habitat fragmented could cause more of the snakes to die on area roads.Now its just up to Pasco County officials to approve final site plans, and sign the permits necessary to get construction going. Pasco Countys Clarke said her staff met with Simon Oct. 29, and will be working with them to develop a coordinated schedule and get this project going. Simon, headquartered in Indianapolis, owns or has an ownership interest stake in more than 325 retail properties in North America and Asia, comprising of 242 million square feet. In the past quarter alone, Simon has opened three new outlet malls in Toronto, St. Louis and Korea. It also began construction on four more in Charlotte, N.C.; Eagen, Minn.; Mirabel, Quebec; and Vancouver, B.C., according to the companys corporate filings.ISNER, from page 1 MALL, from page 1 If you goWHAT: Ace for a Cure tennis fundraiser featuring John Isner WHO: Friedreichs Ataxia Research Alliance WHEN: Nov. 24, 11:30 a.m. WHERE: Avila Golf & Country Club, 943 Guisando De Avila, Tampa COST: $80 INFO: tinyurl.com/AceCure Paul Avery, the former chief operating officer of Outback Steakhouses parent company, Bloomin Brands Inc., and the current president and chief executive of World of Beer, has been a key figure for years with the Friedreichs Ataxia Research Alliance.

www.LakerLutzNews.com November 20, 201317 Chance billboard introduces fitness studio to new homeBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comThe ink was barely dry on the sales agreement, and Samantha Taylor was already moving into her new Pure Health and Fitness Studios location on Knight Road in Land O Lakes. Thats because the longtime local trainer doesnt like to waste time, whether its helping to get a body in shape, or to provide a new 3,700-square-foot facility for her clients. Yet, Taylor hasnt always enjoyed that level of discipline. I used to be a major binger, Taylor said. I would binge on thousands of calories at a time, and that progressed for quite a few years, all in the middle of my professional training career. At the time, Taylor was a physical trainer at Lifestyle Family Fitness Center. And while she was one of the top trainers in the company, Taylor had a nickname she didnt really much care for: the chunky trainer. I had gained about 20 pounds, she said. I know that doesnt sound like a lot, but for a personal trainer, that is like gaining 50 or 60. But that all changed a decade ago when she discovered the Bible. I really started to get the revelation that the Bible talks about that your body is a temple of God, Taylor said. For me, it was life-changing. It was just like a light switch went on inside my head, and I suddenly understood that my body was a gift, and I really didnt have the right to abuse it. It was also that same time Taylor decided to strike out on her own, starting Pure Health, and working with women to build their bodily temples as well. Taylor admits that because it helped her, spirituality is a part of her program. But it doesnt mean she attracts only Christian clients. We dont force it on people, but those who want it, its in there, she said. That is a reason why people seek me out. They want to work with someone who works with not just the body, but they like the mind, spirit and the body all together. Since starting Pure Health, Taylor has hosted clients in a few smaller locations she rented out. And she was happy doing that, until one day last summer she saw a billboard while on her way to Busch Gardens. Something in me knew I had to turn around and get that phone number, Taylor said. And when I finally saw the building, it was everything I had dreamed about. We now have rooms for seminars, and eventually even a cooking class. We are lakeside on an acre of land. I get teared up every time I think about it. The two-story building is off State Road 54, not far from its intersection with Land O Lakes Boulevard, but a bit hidden behind trees and a small lake. Taylor said she is turning it into a place where women can come and get fit without feeling intimidated by the bigger box gyms. Construction is already underway inside the building, which Taylor expects to have done by the end of the year. And right now, only her six trainers even know about the new location. They got their first look just last week, welcomed by hundreds of rose petals sprinkled up the main walkway. The boot camp portion of her program will open at the new location by Thanksgiving, set up in what is an air-conditioned former garage. The big doors opening up to it are still there, which Taylor says can be opened in cooler weather to let in some fresh air. Taylors program is straightforward: If you dont eat certain foods, you will not have cravings. I think that is the trap that so many people find themselves in, she said. Theyre trapped in cravings and impulses and desires that seem to overtake them. And they dont know how to rein it in. The new location for Pure Health opens Jan. 1 at 2206 Knight Road in Land O Lakes. In the meantime, to reach Taylor, call (813) 909-4939, or visit her website at PureHealthStudios.com. Taylor said she found her new location thanks to a billboard she saw on her way to Busch Gardens a few months back. (Photos by Michael Hinman) Samantha Taylor displays some of the flooring that will be part of the boot camp section of her new Pure Health location in Land O Lakes.

The rate increases, according to Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, are a result of reforms made to address the solvency and affordability of the National Flood Insurance Program, which protects homeowners from flood losses. He expects premiums to double, and for some to increase ten-fold, in the Tampa Bay area. Congress must find a long-term solution to ensure flood insurance remains affordable for both current and future homeowners, Bilirakis said in a letter to constituents. Bilirakis has introduced what he calls the Homeowners Flood Insurance Relief Act, designed to cap annual insurance program premiums at the end of a 10-year phase-in to no more than the appraised value of the structure at the time of purchase, divided by 30 which represents the typical time span of a homeowners mortgage. It also would allow homeowners to pay premiums on a monthly basis. To date, no other Congressional proposal truly addresses the affordability and sustainability of the flood insurance program, Bilirakis said. Although the reforms made to the federal program were not intended to cause major increases, some Floridians have been quoted annual premiums of $10,000 or more, according to Bilirakis. This is an untenable financial burden during these difficult economic times that will negatively impact our already fragile housing market, and requires correction, he said. The federal insurance program has generally been able to cover the cost of flood losses incurred by policyholders, Bilirakis said. However, the 2005 hurricane season brought unprecedented flood damage, with hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Wilma causing $18 billion in debt. Hurricane Sandy in 2012 made it worse, with debt from the program jumping to $24 billion. Congress opted to reform, since losing the program altogether could deter financial institutions from writing mortgages in floodprone areas like Florida, Bilirakis said. Congress cannot afford to kick the can down the road by just postponing the rate increases, Bilirakis said, adding its a path it too often defaults to.Bilirakis introduces flood insurance reform Music to their earsJohn McColley, a kindergarten teaching assistant at Orange Grove Drives Corbett Preparatory School, shows students in the prekindergarten class how longer strings of his harp make lower sounds, and shorter strings produce higher pitch sounds.

www.LakerLutzNews.com November 20, 201320 Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community SportsCommunity SportsSunlake, Wharton football squads fall in playoffsBy Michael MurilloThe Laker/Lutz News CorrespondentHigh school football teams fight all year for a shot at the district title. If they fall short, the backup plan is to be district runner-up, because that spot (like the title winner) earns a trip to the playoffs. Neither the Wharton Wildcats nor the Sunlake Seahawks were able to achieve their top goal of a district title, but both earned a hard-fought runner-up spot to earn a playoff berth. And both battled right to the end in the first round of the playoffs, before falling to their opponents. Neither team had an easy road to earning second place in the district. For Wharton, two straight district losses put them in a must-win situation at the end of the year against Bloomingdale. The team had faced a big deficit heading into the final period, but scored 22 unanswered points and came away with a 30-23 win, a tie-breaker over the Bulls and that coveted runner-up spot in Class 8A-District 6. Sunlake dropped its first district game, then rallied to win their next three to earn their second place finish. A tough 28-21 win over Land O Lakes in October proved to be the difference between the two teams, and the difference between second and third place. In the end, the Seahawks 3-1 record was good enough for runner-up status in Class 6A-District 6. While those were satisfying finishes for each school, it was really just the end of the regular season: Both teams then entered a separate 32-team regional tournament to determine the state champion. But for both clubs, the beginning of their playoffs would also be the end. Wharton fell in their playoff opener to Orlandos Dr. Phillips Panthers, 3710, while Sunlake was a field goal short to the Gainesville Hurricanes, 17-14. Sunlake Head Coach Bill Browning explained that, despite the loss, he was impressed with the way his team played. Gainesvilles a very talented team. They have a ton of speed, he said. We played exceptionally well. Physically, we beat them up. The effort was fantastic. Close ballgame. The Seahawks out-gained the Hurricanes and had a lead late in the game, but some untimely penalties and a late surge by Gainesville ended their season. For Wharton, although the final score indicated the game wasnt close, it really didnt break open until the final period. The Wildcats were behind 14-3 at halftime and still within two scores in the fourth quarter. Head Coach David Mitchell said it was a few game-changing snaps and some self-inflicted wounds that turned the tide against them. They scored based on big plays, he said. We had problems with penalties. Thats what hurt us a lot. While he didnt want Wharton to end their year with a loss, Mitchell believes they had a good season and already is looking toward next year. He has a number of returning players, and several of them will participate in other high school sports, which he said will help them on the gridiron. In 2014, the key will be keeping them on top of their grades (and eligible to play sports), focused and ready for the new season. Browning has his team looking forward to 2014 as well. He said the Seahawks have plenty of good talent returning especially on offense and theyll be able to use some of the schools junior varsity players, who enjoyed an 8-0 season this year. Looking back, the coaches know that making the playoffs is an achievement in itself, both for themselves and the players who work so hard to get there. And for those graduating, many can look back on not just a good year, but a good career at their respective schools. For some of those players, its the third opportunity (to participate in the playoffs) in three years for them. Thats pretty good, Mitchell said. And Browning agrees. For the kids coming back well have to learn from it (the playoff loss), and for the seniors, we had a great senior bunch. Theyre the winning-est senior class in the short history of the school.

Of course, they were able to say the same thing last year, and the year before that, and the year before that. In fact, in the five years the school has had a volleyball program, theyre a perfect 5-for-5 in district titles. But while the district results were always the same, so were the regional ones: The previous four years found the team 0-4 when it came to an elusive regional title. Until this year. The Warriors finally claimed their first Class 7A regional crown by besting the Lake Nona Lions on Nov. 9 in three sets. That win took them to the state semifinals for the first time in school history, where they fell to Gulf Coast in a tough five-set match. But while their season ended with a loss, the team is proud of their accomplishments in claiming a regional title and advancing farther than any previous Steinbrenner volleyball team before them. They were the first group in school history to attain that goal, and I think that was most exciting for them, said Head Coach Laura Stegenga, who has coached for several years, but just completed her second season with Steinbrenner. This squad stood out, she said, because the schools team historically is a young team. Yet they benefited from having a number of juniors and seniors to provide experience this season. And with 10 juniors helping lead the way, Stegenga can also look forward to coaching a large portion of this years successful team again in 2014. One of those players, Avery Bradshaw, admits the state semifinal was a tough loss after coming so far this season. But the junior, now in her third year with the Steinbrenner volleyball team, soon recognized the importance of the schools first regional title. We wanted to be the first year (the 2013 squad) on the banner in the gym that said we are regional champions, Bradshaw said. That was a great accomplishment for us. She was also consoled by the outpouring of support the team received from the school. Originally unsure of the reaction shed receive and hoping nobody was disappointed in the team following the loss, Bradshaw said she was grateful to see students and faculty including some she didnt know were even following the teams success offering congratulations and letting her know how proud they were of her and her team. That made everything a lot better, she said. While the team can look back on 2013 as the best volleyball season in school history, Stegenga knows that there will be new challenges next season. Each year the team wants to live up to the schools history of claiming the district title, but she admits that winning a regional title and coming so close to the state finals has raised the bar when it comes to team expectations. The matchups, Stegenga said, will determine how challenging their draw is in the postseason, but she believes that this years experience and the desire to improve will provide a lot of motivation for her returning players. However, the moment they claimed the first regional title in school history is one that will stick with her. I remember that game point of the third set against Lake Nona (in the regional final) and the girls celebration and the tears. It was very powerful, Stegenga said. Thats really the reason why I coach, is to have moments like that with the players. The Warriors celebrate after a set win, during Steinbrenner High Schools recent volleyball playoff run that named them regional champions.

Maximum strength analgesic creme for temporary relief from: Joint and Muscle soreness Arthritis Back aches THG-13903 SPORTS The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportAbbey Duncan of Wesley Chapel, and Kara Wilkins of Land O Lakes, both led their respective high school teams to their best state finishes ever. Both are freshmen, and were the respective high-point finishers for their high schools. Both also train together at the Clearwater Aquatic Team at Hunters Green Country Club in New Tampa. In the preliminaries, Duncan seeded fifth, and finished the 200meter freestyle at 1:58.84, a lifetime best, earning a second-seed finish going into the finals. In the 100-meter fly, both Duncan and Wilkins competed, with Duncan taking second seed with a 0:56.57, while Wilkins finished under 1 minute for the first time, with a 0:59.82, and taking the 11th seed. Wilkins also swam the 100-meter backstroke, going 0:59.69 for the 12th spot going into the finals.Duncan swam her 200-meter freestyle to gold, pulling away in the last 50 yards for a new lifetime best of 1:50.82. During the finals for the 100-meter fly, Duncan finished with a lifetime best there at 0:56.23, good enough for the silver behind senior Grace DiMeo, who both battled for the first 75 yards. Wilkins came back in the 100-meter fly, and once again finished under a minute, this time with a 0:58.74. She would take that success into the backstroke, going head-tohead with senior Courtney DeVeny, with the older girl winning by 0:0.15 seconds. However, Wilkins would have her best time ever in her first National Collegiate Scouting Association Junior Nationals cut with a time of 0:58.45. Duncan was the only freshman individual Class 2A state champion, while Wilkins was the highest-finishing freshman in the 100-meter backstroke.
