By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comLutz Preparatory School is gearing up to add a charter school for middle school students, beginning with the fall 2014-15 school year. While the school will be located on the Lutz Prep campus, 17951 N. U.S. 41, now occupied by a kindergarten through sixth-grade program, the middle school will be considered a separate entity, under the charter approved on Dec. 10 by the Hillsborough County School Board. The final step to the charter, which involves signing the five-year contract, is expected in March. Diane Farmer, principal of Lutz Prep, said the new middle school would open for students in sixth and seventh grades. Eighth grade will be added in the 2015-16 school year. The new charter middle school, like the elementary school, will focus on providing a traditional education, in which all studentsCox Elementary principal wins new state honorBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comYvonne Reins, principal at Cox Elementary School in Dade City, has been named an “Elite Principal.” She is being honored as part of a new program that’s a collaboration between Florida TaxWatch and Learning Systems Institute Principal Leadership Initiative. TaxWatch is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog. The Learning Systems Institute is part of Florida State University. The data-driven awards were based on the ability of students to surpass predicted scores, given their prior achievement, and other student and school characteristics. The predicted student achievement scores were determined by using previous Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores. Two elementary, two middle and two high school principals of high-risk Florida public schools will be honored in a Jan. 23 ceremony in Tallahassee, where they will receive statewide recognition and a $5,000 cash prize. Reins, who is from a family of educators, said her mother will accompany her to the ceremony. The award aims to acknowledge that schools that perform well require great leadership, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and chief executive officer of Florida TaxWatch. A principal has to balance many competing demands. Principals are the CEOs of their school. While teachers are on the front lines delivering instruction, it takes excellence at the top to create the atmosphere that nurtures, advances and retains great teachers, he said. High-risk schools were selected for the award because the idea is to demonstrate that all students can, in fact, learn — regardless of language barriers, income level or other potential obstacles, Calabro said. An outstanding leader can turn around a school that’s not working, but a poor leader can quickly undo excellence, he added. The goal of the program is to study what these principals are doing and to replicate successful approaches elsewhere. It’s also important to include these principals in discussions about state educational policy, he said. The principals will be incorporated into a five-year study performed by the Learning Systems Initiative to identify a principal’s See PRINCIPAL, page12 Lutz Prep readies new middle school B.C.

State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, wants to do something this country hasn’t seen in 227 years: to call a Constitutional convention, with a goal of adding what he feels is an important amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He wants to force the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to limit all bills to a single subject. “This is about having the federal government start conducting themselves in a professional manner,” Simpson said. “Most of the frustration we have with our government is that you have something like a spending bill in Congress. They always add on several hundred millions of dollars of something that has nothing to do with the subject they are dealing with. And as a citizen of the state of Florida, I am tired of our federal government being operated this way.” Simpson is referring to what are known as “riders,” typically additional controversial legislation added to a major bill that would likely never pass on its own, and usually used to help negotiate support on a bill from individual members. Those riders can contain all kinds of requests, but more often than not approves some project in a congressman’s district that might not have been funded otherwise. Riders also can be used to delay other major bills by adding unrelated items to it those supporting the main bill would be against. “Both parties are guilty about the use of riders,” said W. Spider Webb Jr., a former Tallahassee-based lobbyist who founded the Single Subject Amendment organization. “We are not trying to give Congress a black eye. We are trying to improve the way Americans view Congress.” Approval ratings of Congress are at historic lows, a lot of it based on the gridlock found within the walls of its chambers on Capitol Hill. Many on the outside don’t believe the word “bipartisan” exists anymore, and unpopular riders to bills dealing with the federal budget have stalled many of them on the floor of Congress. Riders are business as usual in Congress, but it’s not that way in Florida and 40 other states, Simpson said. “Our federal government should learn to live within its means, have a balanced budget, and pass bills on their own merit, just as states have to,” Simpson said. State governments prevent riders either by requiring bills to be single-subject, or giving governors the power to veto specific portions of a bill and approving the rest. President Bill Clinton signed a line-item veto act into law introduced by U.S. Sen. Bob Dole in 1996, but it was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court two years later. Simpson wants Florida to be the first of the 34 states needed to call for a Constitutional convention, which would put Pasco County on the forefront of history. The last time a Constitutional convention was called, it took place in Philadelphia in 1787, and created what would become the U.S. Constitution. “If Florida passes this, then other states will take a more serious look at this,” Simpson said. “Doing a Constitutional amendment is such a large task, and I think it will pick up momentum as more states pass it.” All Constitutional amendments since the Bill of Rights have gone through Congress. Simpson and Webb, however, suspect Congress won’t be so quick to take on an amendment that would change everything they know in Washington, D.C. A Constitutional convention would bypass Congress, and any approved measure would then require 38 states to ratify. U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, said he likes the idea, but has some reservations. “In general, I support the idea of singlesubject legislation,” Ross told The Laker/Lutz News in an email. “Although it may be more difficult to pass a lot of bills, at least we would remove irrelevant riders that are usually attached to current legislation.” The problem, however, is when Congress has to deal with large complicated issues, which would be difficult to break down into individual bills. “My concerns with a Constitutional amendment limiting all bills to single-subject bills is that it would restrict the ability to take legislative action in an omnibus fashion in the event of an emergency or catastrophe,” Ross said. Webb knows it’s an uphill battle from here to get a Constitutional convention. In the last 50 years, two attempts to call a Constitutional convention fell just short. And if it were to happen, it might open a plethora of other legal issues — especially on the topic of whether a Constitutional convention has to be single-subject or not. Some scholars believe that once a convention is called, any subject can be brought to the table. It’s worth that risk, Webb said. “This simple procedural, nonpartisan provision would have a profound effect on the way Congress conducts business,” he said. “As a result, you would be limiting pork barrel spending … and you would be increasing the institutional accountability of Congress.” Simpson’s Senate measure has a companion in the House introduced by State Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello. Simpson says his measure should have its first committee hearing next month.For more information on the national movement, visit SingleSubjectAmendment.com.

We want to use this dedicated space in The Laker and Lutz News to answer questions we are frequently asked and to share with you information about new innovations that make dentistry pain free and affordable. Can periodontal disease be related to premature and low birth weight babies?Several recent studies suggest that women with periodontal disease may be at more risk. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacteria-induced inflammatory condition that attacks gum tissue and the bone supporting the teeth. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently released a statement encouraging pregnant women to maintain their oral health and recommend regular dental cleanings even during pregnancy. According to the American Dental Hygienists Association, recent studies have shown that women with periodontal disease are at 3 to 5 times greater risk of preterm birth than those who are periodontally healthy.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Kumquat Festival aims at old-fashioned, down-home funBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comSomewhere between 40,000 and 50,000 people are expected to head to Dade City on Jan. 25 to attend the 17th annual Kumquat Festival, one of Pasco County’s most popular events.The festival that pays homage to the diminutive orange fruit had humble beginnings. Phyllis Smith, Roxanne Barthle and Carlene Ellberg were looking for a way to help inject new life into downtown Dade City. They put their heads together and decided to have a festival to honor the kumquat.The inaugural festival was on the lawn of the historic Dade City Courthouse. It included a few vendors, some food and some kumquat growers. This year, there are 430 vendors offering fine arts, craft items, food and other services — and that’s after about 150 vendors were turned away, said John Moors, executive director of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event. There also will be two entertainment stages, a car and truck show, children’s activities, and a health and wellness section, Moors said. The festival is a magnet for visitors and has raised Dade City’s profile. It was heralded by the Pasco County Tourism Board as the Pasco County Event of the Year in 2012 and has enjoyed the distinction of being named a “Top 20 Event” by the Southeast Tourism Society, which selects premier events in 13 Southeastern states. It gives the community a chance to show off its old-fashioned charm and gives eventgoers an opportunity to enjoy a family-friendly event, with free parking and admission, Moors said. Offering the event without charging an admission means that organizers must cover costs from vendor fees and sponsors, and drum up support from volunteers. Fortunately, the festival enjoys the help of the city, county and state governments, as well as corporate sponsors. Community volunteers play a vital role, too, Moors said. Volunteers from Calvary Assembly of God Church, for instance, help set a friendly tone for visitors by doling out bottles of water to people who park in the satellite lot at the Pasco County Fairgrounds.Getting ready for the festival requires thorough planning and some elbow grease, starting a year ahead of the event to make sure all of the logistics are covered, Moors said.On festival day, volunteers are up well before sunrise to pitch in. “We have hundreds of local volunteers that start at 4:30 in the morning to get all of the vendors in and get all of our things in and set up,” Moors said. “By 9 o’clock, which is the festival opening time, we’re all ready to go.” There’s plenty of parking with the satellite lots, but last year organizers discovered that those using the shuttles had to wait too long. So, this year there are more shuttle buses, and the bus routes have been tweaked to prevent long waits. Moors expects the festival to attract 5,000 to 10,000 more people this year because of increased marketing efforts. This year, event organizers are making a bigger push to try to entice people from Sun City Center, The Villages, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa and the Nature Coast in Pinellas to make the trip to Dade City. The event has a regional impact, Moors said. Using the same formula Visit Florida uses for fairs and festivals, he believes $1 million exchanges hands over the course of the festival. Of course, much of that money goes to the vendors, but the event has an impact in Dade City, too, he said.“I’ve had restaurants tell me that they do one week’s worth of business in that one day,” he said. “Our merchant’s association is geared up. They know that if they don’t make a sale on that day, there’s a good possibility that they can make a connection for somebody to come back and visit again and perhaps buy because they like what they see.”The king of the event is the kumquat. Described as the “little gold gem of the citrus industry” by kumquat promoters, the fruit can be found in virtually every form at the festival. Vendors will offer kumquat pie, kumquat salsa, kumquat jam, kumquat jelly, kumquat preserves, kumquat ice cream, and even kumquat lotions and soaps. It’s easy to understand why the event attracts big crowds, Moors said. “It’s a wonderful, wonderful family experience and experience for mature adults who enjoy a good, old-fashioned, downhome unique Florida experience,” he said. B C MANION/STAFFJohn Moors holds a poster promoting the 17th annual Kumquat Festival presented by the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. He thinks the event will draw between 40,000 and 50,000 to the East Pasco County city this year. 17th annual Kumquat FestivalWHEN: Jan. 25, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. WHERE: Historic downtown Dade City DIRECTIONS: Take Interstate 75 and go east on State Road 52; or take U.S. 301.

ASK ABOUT OUR PRIVATE PARTY ROOM THAT SEATS UP TO 30 Brandon expansion won’t hurt USAA’s local campusBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comWith more than 2,000 employees already flocking to its New Tampa campus every day, the United Services Automobile Association, better known as USAA, is already a major economic player in the region. A planned expansion over the next five years may shift new jobs south to Brandon, but the insurance company that grossed nearly $21 billion in revenue in 2012 won’t be abandoning its northern campus just off Bruce B. Downs Boulevard anytime soon. Before settling on Brandon to bring in another 1,100 people, USAA had already been looking for new campuses nationwide, according to Robert Hoyland, USAA’s vice president and general manager in Tampa, during a recent breakfast meeting with the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce. It was not only land and facility costs that kept USAA in the Tampa Bay region, but Brandon has one asset the insurance company was most interested: veterans. “You might ask, ‘You’re up here and (have) been successful, why are you going all the way down here?’” Hoyland said. “If you ever go to Brandon, you’ll find that a large concentration of active duties and veterans live there. By putting this building there, it helps us with one of our targets as a company — that 20 percent of the work force we hire is either veterans or spouses of veterans.” The move also gives USAA a chance to pull in more employees from the Pinellas County area, something they enjoyed in their original South Tampa location when the company first came to the area, but lost when it opened its 500,000-square-foot facility in New Tampa more than a decade ago. “This will still be our main office,” Hoyland assured those attending the breakfast. “We still like the employees we get from the main area, and we get a lot from Pasco County. They come as far away as Brooksville to come to our facility.” USAA was founded in 1922 after a group of U.S. Army veterans struggled to get affordable car insurance because existing companies at the time thought they were too risky to ensure. The company now boasts more than 10 million members, all of who are, or are associated with, military service members. In recent years, USAA has begun to expand its offerings into mortgages, wealth management and investments. In fact, many of its new positions — including 500 in two temporary locations in Tampa — focus primarily on those fields, Hoyland said. The new facility in Brandon, not far from where Amazon is planning a distribution facility, will eventually hold 1,100. It will also add up to 5,000 other people nationwide, growing the existing employee base of more than 26,000. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFFThe New Tampa campus of USAA will continue running, even when the company expands its work force to Brandon.

He sent this letter from Afghanistan. It is with great pleasure and thanks that I am writing you. I am a Marine officer currently deployed to Afghanistan. I grew up in Lutz and Land O’ Lakes, so it was great to see packages coming from Wesley Chapel. My team of 16 is here to advise, assist and train an Afghan Army Engineer Battalion in their mission. It has been an amazing experience, and I can say that there are great things happening throughout the entire country of Afghanistan. Thank you so much for the huge care packages our team has received. It truly raised our spirits during the holiday season. Because our team is so small, we were able to share lots of joy with the advisor teams living near us. We have even been sharing with our Afghan Army counterparts. Each of us is tremendously grateful that we are in the thoughts and prayers of so many back in the United States. We loved reading the letters, drawings and cards from the many students and volunteers from all over the Tampa area. So please pass on our thanks! I wish you all a wonderful and joyful 2014!

The awards are based solely on state Department of Education data. When Reins received word she’d been named an Elite Principal, she was shocked. “I had no idea that that award even existed,” said Reins, who has been at the helm of Cox Elementary for five years. “What’s so nice about this award is that it is based on data. Not nominations. It’s based on facts. The data doesn’t lie. It is what it is.” She said her school uses a team approach. “This is a tribute to the hardworking staff that I have,” Reins said. “I told the teachers, ‘It’s because of you. This is our award, not mine.’” But it’s not just the teachers who deserve kudos, she said. “Everybody here in this school is very dedicated to our students in more ways than one,” she said. “We all truly care about them — everyone from the cafeteria staff, who provides nutrition to our students, to the custodial staff that maintains a clean and safe learning environment.” There is a culture of high expectation, coupled with support, Reins said. “There are no excuses. We know that our children can rise to the occasion, rise to our expectations. We just need techniques and strategies to help them move along.” Teachers meet weekly to share strategies and do grade-level planning. It allows them to talk, solve problems, and plan lessons to meet the needs of each and every student, she said. “There may be a child that is low in reading, but high in math. They’re going to emphasize those strengths,” Reins said. “This significantly affects their (students’) self confidence and their eagerness to learn. It affects their whole attitude about school and its relevance to their lives.” The teachers use data to inform their instruction. They seek advice from other teachers for strategies to help students succeed. “That’s all part of being a professional,” Reins said. Teachers also pay attention to what students already know, so they can build on that, Reins said. Cox qualifies for additional funding because it is a school serving many children from low-income households. This year, the priority is to use those funds for additional staff and for professional development for teachers, Reins said. Involving parents is important, too. “The teachers try to develop a strong school-home relationship,” she said. “They want their parents to become more involved in their children’s education.” The school soon will host a night for parents of kindergarten, firstand second-grade children to help parents learn how they can help their children with reading strategies. “Many parents don’t know how to help their children, and it’s through no fault of their own,” Reins said. While the school is committed to academic success, it still has a long way to go, Reins said. This award, however, is appreciated. “It’s encouraging,” Reins said. B.C. MANION/STAFFYvonne Reins has been named an Elite Principal in a new awards program that is based entirely on academic gains being made by students in Florida’s high-risk schools. PRINCIPAL, from page 1 have learning plans, Farmer said. A middle school committee has been visiting charter schools and kindergarten through eighth-grade schools in Florida that are known for their excellence to learn about the programs they offer. The committee is researching curriculum options. The plan is to create a schedule that focuses on student achievement, Farmer said. The goal is not merely to add more grades at the campus, but to create an outstanding middle school. In the long-term, Lutz Prep wants to add a high school, too, Farmer said. The middle school, like the elementary school, most likely will draw students not only from Hillsborough County but also from Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando and Polk counties, as well, Farmer said. The principal believes parents are drawn to the school because it has such a dedicated staff. It’s not a bit unusual, she said, to see many cars in the parking lot long after the school day has ended because the teachers are so committed to delivering live and engaging instruction. Before teachers are hired to teach at Lutz Prep, they must demonstrate their skills by delivering a lesson to students, Farmer added. Besides having a dedicated staff, Farmer believes another chief strength of the school is the commitment of its parents. “Our parents stay engaged,” Farmer said. “The culture is total family involvement.”By state law, all of Lutz Prep’s fifthand sixth-graders will be given preference for enrolling in the middle school before any new students will be enrolled. The school expects a few seventh-grade openings, and will be filling those through a lottery system.Applications must be received by Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., to be considered for this year’s lottery. Anyone who would like more information can attend an open house and information session on Jan. 29 at 7 p.m., at the school, or can visit the school’s website at LutzPrep.org.SCHOOL, from page 1 THISISWHATAHEARTATTACKFEELSLIKETOAWOMAN.(UNUSUALUPPERBODYPAIN,ORDISCOMFORTINONEORBOTHARMS,BACK,SHOULDER, NECK,JAWORUPPERPARTOFTHESTOMACH) OtherHeartAttackSymptomstoWatchOutFor:Chestpain,discomfort,pressureorsqueezing,liketheresatonofweightonyou€Shortnessof breath€Nausea€Light-headednessorsuddendizziness€Unusualfatigue€Breakingoutina coldsweat Ifyouexperienceanyoneofthesesymptoms,dontmakeexcusesforthem.

CALL OUR OFFICE TODAY. 813.949.8411 The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportSweeping changes are coming to a popular loan program for rural homebuyers. U.S. Department of Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack says the changes are part of an extensive overhaul that will strengthen rural housing markets, increase the availability of rural home loans, and spur the construction of new homes in rural areas. “These improvements will help create jobs and enable more people to participate in the rural home loan guarantee program,” Vilsack said, in a release. “The changes will add significant capital to rural areas and give rural Americans more opportunities to make financing decisions that lay the groundwork for the future prosperity of their families.” The changes, which take effect Sept. 1 next year, affect the USDA Rural Development’s Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. Among other things, it expands the types of lenders who are eligible to participate. With the rule change, any lending entity supervised and regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Current, the Federal Reserve Banks, or the Federal Housing Finance Board, may underwrite loans guaranteed by the rural development program. This will enable many small community banks and credit unions to participate in the guaranteed loan program, where right now they are not eligible lenders. In another policy change, for the first time, borrowers will be able to choose home loan terms shorter than 30 years. This will result in a significant cost savings for borrowers who qualify for the higher payments, and who want to pay off their loan faster and pay less interest on their loan.Collectively, these changes will make housing loans more readily available to residents in underserved communities, such as those targeted by the USDA’s StrikeForce initiative. Through StrikeForce, the USDA works with state, local and community officials to increase awareness of federal programs that help rural residents, businesses and communities.As part of the overhaul, the rural development program has begun a series of enhancements to automate processes, reduce paperwork and reduce loan approval times. Since the beginning of the Obama Administration, more than 700,000 rural residents have bought homes with mortgages guaranteed by USDA Rural Development, according to the release. In many rural areas, the majority of homes are financed with loans underwritten through this program.

I found a little Middle Eastern-flair Lebanese caf that is actually next to a gas station right on U.S. 41 in Lutz called the Gyro Zone. Trust me, don’t judge a book by its cover. Even though it’s next to a gas station, you will be very impressed with the quality of food the owner delivers, and the great service he provides. I have to admit, I have not eaten Middle Eastern food before, but this food is delicious, wholesome and tastes very fresh. And I liked that it’s something totally different than we are used to with traditional American food. The owner, Abe Srour — who was born in Lebanon — says that “seeing people happy and coming back is what I do this for.” He added that 95 percent of his customers are American, and “I feel they are looking for something different. We have brought a new cuisine to this community, and people have been very receptive. Everyone that has come in has returned many times.”One of the things I love about family restaurants, instead of the big corporate ones, is you really get that family feel from the owners. Abe is such a nice guy, and you can tell he really enjoys serving his customers. Honestly, even though the food is great, it’s worth a trip, even just to meet this guy! One of the items they specialize in is gyros, which is lamb. If you have never had this before, I encourage you to try it. It’s very healthy. I also tried the homemade hummus, and that was a delicious snack to start with. Abe recommended I try the chicken shawarma, even though I had no idea what it was. But I was willing to check it out, and wow, was I surprised. “Shawarma” is a Turkish word that means “turning,” so basically the meat is turning on a spindle while it’s being cooked. It is a vertical rotisserie, and you can choose chicken, beef or gyro.To reduce the carbs, I modified the platter that came with the sauted veggies and rice, and I left off the rice. I believe in eating a higher-fat diet and controlling your blood sugar levels by monitoring your carbs. This helps you lose weight easily, age slower, have ultimate health, and get rid of cravings.The flavors that Abe used are delicious and so unique, I had to control myself not to eat too much (love those to-go boxes). Traditionally, a gyro comes with a wrap, but one thing I like here is they offer it with or without that, and you can just enjoy the meat and veggies. It is just as enjoyable without the excess carbs.Another thing I like is the oil they use — a very thick olive oil from Lebanon, which is much better for you than using vegetable oils that many restaurants use. Consuming vegetable oils in excess are linked to inflammation in the body, so you want to reduce those in your food choices.The Gyro Zone is located at 18215 U.S. 41 in Lutz. Its hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. I encourage you to check it out, and experience Abe’s skill for cooking great food, and his passion for hospitality.Great place to eat, hidden in plain sight HEALTHY ORDERING Editor’s Note: Eat i n g out i s a staple of A m er i can l i fe, but i t i s also one reason why we are heav i er than ever before.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE by Mike Matthew special to The Laker / Lutz News Joel McGuire and Eric Robinson, owners of McGuires Beautiful Outdoors, joined forces 10 years ago to create the ultimate lawn care company. One year earlier, Joel had started a chemical application business applying fertilizers and pesticides, and Eric had started a lawn care business. Joel and Eric had worked together in the corporate world a few years earlier. Both left and started their own ventures with just a credit card and a love of the outdoors. After collaborating on a few projects they decided to combine their businesses to create a complete lawn care service. With Joel and Eric, its everything or nothing. They believe in taking care of every aspect of their customers yards. We want to know whats going on with your yard,Ž says Joel. There will be no finger-pointing or passing the buck regarding a problem. We take care of the whole yard, not just one service.Ž They mow and fertilize, mulch and pull weeds, trim bushes and trees (except for very large trees), and manage irrigation. They also provide hardscape design (brick and stone), landscape design and planting services, making sure that the right plants are selected to give customers a lawn theyll love without any of the headaches. We take the worry of the lawn away from our customers,Ž says Joel. We focus on value. We dont have a sales force. We dont use high-pressure tactics or try to scare people into using our services.Ž Customers with questions or concerns speak directly to Joel or Eric. We never promise anything we cant deliver,Ž says Eric. We take a holistic approach to lawn care. You cant focus on only one thing and have a great yard.Ž There is a reason for every problem,Ž says Eric. We dont just treat the symptoms. We find the source of the problem and fix that. We work closely with our customers to give them the results they want.Ž We take a proactive approach to lawn care,Ž says Joel. Just like with health care, we focus on proactive care to prevent problems rather than try to fix it after the problem has taken hold. For example, we want to get fertilization and insecticide products down before any problems begin.Ž Its easier to prevent a problem than to cure it,Ž say Eric. The cost is higher for us initially, but the long term benefits for the customer is worth the additional expense. We save our customers money in the long term.Ž Joel and Eric focus on middle income communities providing a high level of lawn care service at competitive prices. They currently have 1,200 very satisfied customers. Our goal is not to be huge but to be the best in our area,Ž says Joel. We focus on northern Hillsborough and central Pasco counties.Ž Eric added, We do half the yards of our competitors in the same amount of time. Our focus is on quality, not quantity. Most lawn failures occur because someone wasnt paying attention to the big picture. Its not just about fertilization and irrigation.Ž Joel and Eric provide in-house training for all of their staff to ensure their customers receive the very best service. They also maintain their equipment daily. We sharpen our lawn mower blades every day,Ž says Eric.McGuire’s Beautiful Outdoors Does It All Trust us.

Pasco EDC is a nonprofit organization that promotes economic development in Pasco County. It’s a partnership funded by corporate and public investors focused on the economic vitality of the county. “We believe it is important to support small business growth in our community, and Pasco EDC’s microloan program has been successful in helping entrepreneurs grow their business,” says Skip Skairus, senior vice president of CenterState Bank, in a release. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create almost two out of every three new jobs in the United States each year, the Pasco EDC said in a release. So far, Pasco EDC has awarded 10 microloans to local businesses, and earlier this year received its first complete loan payoff. Banks and business professionals should refer people to Pasco EDC who may be turned down for a loan because their borrowing needs are too small or they have limited credit history, but have a great business idea, officials said. Once they launch or grow their business, the bank can continue its relationship with them and make the next loan after they have gained more experience and sales history. Loan applicants must be for-profit companies located in Pasco County, and borrowers must show they have the experience and resources to be successful business operators. Proceeds may be used for working capital, inventory, supplies, furniture, fixtures, machinery and equipment, but not to purchase real estate or to refinance existing debt. For information, or to consider donating to the fund, call the Pasco EDC at (813) 9260827, or visit PascoEDC.com.

The new meeting place is in a growing section of Wesley Chapel and around the corner from a 20-acre site that the church is raising money to buy, Pastor Jeff Olsen said. Another reason for moving its Sunday service to the elementary school is because it provides natural opportunities to reach out to young families. Besides having its Sunday service at the school, Olsen anticipates the church becoming a true community partner with the school.The church has set a goal of raising the money it needs for the land by this spring, he said. Construction of the church will require additional fundraising, but Olsen hopes that Grace Community will be able to erect its own building within the next few years.Grace Community is a family-oriented church, which seeks to offer Biblical-relevant messages. During the 10:30 a.m. service, the church offers an interactive children’s program called Grace Harbor, for infants through fifth graders.

One could probably call it a “rebuilding” year. Just don’t use that word when talking to Steinbrenner girls coach J.R. Allen. “That whole mindset, I don’t allow my kids to think like that,” Allen said. “To me, that’s kind of making an excuse to where you can have an average year.” Allen’s team seems to have received the message because they aren’t having an average year: The Warriors are currently 20-3, and sit atop Class 7A-District 8 with a 6-1 record. The team began the season with a 12-game winning streak, and their three losses have been to teams with a combined record of 52-7. Allen credits the team’s strong start to a suffocating defense: Just five teams have been able to reach the 40-point threshold against them. In fact, he said that the Warriors have kept almost every opponent to at least 20 points below their scoring average. “That’s why we’ve had the success we’ve had, because this whole team has bought in, heart and soul, to what it really means to play team defense and shut people down,” Allen said. Steinbrenner also is good at pulling out a victory in close contests: The team is 4-1 in games decided by six points or less. But that isn’t an accident, either. The team specifically practices late-game circumstances that put their players in pressure situations. Whether they’re down by one point with less than a minute left in the game, or they have a small lead to protect and no timeouts remaining — if they face that situation in a real game, odds are they’ve dealt with something similar in practice. But when it comes to the one main factor in the team’s success, sophomore Courtney Hall agrees with her coach. “I think definitely our strongest quality is our defense. We just can’t be stopped,” she said. The team’s philosophy is to have everyone on the court provide pressure and make things difficult for the opposing offense. Hall also played for Steinbrenner in her freshman year, though not as a starter. She acknowledges that the previous year’s team featured players who were on the court together for a long time and knew each other well, and the current team had to find their own chemistry. But they’ve done so with a stingy defense and a focus on not allowing the opponent to get second chances at scoring. Hall is Steinbrenner’s leading rebounder, and said that a big team focus is on making sure there are no easy follow-ups when an opponent tries for points. “If you’re going to take a shot, you’re only getting one shot, and all of us are crashing the boards,” she said. While the team’s philosophy has earned them a strong record and the top spot in the district, it will be the district tournament and playoffs that will determine how far the Warriors go. And with more than a decade of coaching experience (including coaching boys earlier in his career), Allen has led teams with various skill levels and abilities. But it’s this Steinbrenner team that has him confident in ways he hasn’t been in the past. “This is the first time I’ve ever been able to say this in 12 years: This team could win a state championship,” Allen said. “Now will they? Obviously that depends on how we finish and me getting them to absolutely believe that unequivocally with no doubts, and we’re still working on it. “But I truly believe this team could play for a state championship.” COURTESY OF J.R. ALLENOlivia Unger, a senior point guard on the Warriors team, reaches for the ball, proving that a strong defense is necessary for success. Steinbrenner is 20-3, and currently leads Class 7A-District 8.By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comOn Dec. 19, senior point guard Ke’Shawn Ingram joined a pretty exclusive club: boys basketball players from Steinbrenner High School who have scored 1,000 points or more in their careers. In fact, it’s so exclusive that he’s the only member. Ingram reached that mark by scoring 25 points in a home game against Sickles. And while the end result was a 69-55 loss for the Warriors, who are going through a challenging season at 6-11 (3-4 in district play), that milestone is a definite bright spot for the program. But the player who set a new standard for boys basketball excellence at Steinbrenner isn’t doing much celebrating. The team’s lack of wins weighs more on his mind than his personal accomplishment. “Don’t get me wrong, I like it. I’m proud of myself, but it’s not my first concern,” Ingram said about setting the mark. “The main goal is for my team to go as far as we can.” The Warriors are having no problem scoring points: With Ingram’s help, they lead their district in points favored by a comfortable margin. In fact, the next closest team is more than 150 points back. Defense, however, has been a problem, as they also have the most points against — also more than 150 points ahead of the second-worst mark in Class 7A-District 8. Ingram acknowledges the defensive issues and says the team is working on techniques to improve for the rest of the season. If it seems unusual that a high-scoring senior is more worried about team defense than his personal offensive records, it might be because Ke’Shawn Ingram is an unusual athlete. His 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame is well-suited to sports, but his 3.66 GPA shows that his focus is on more than racking up points on the court. “School always comes first for me,” Ingram explained. If the team doesn’t have practice after school, homework is at the top of his agenda once he gets home, with extra basketball work coming later in the evening. His goal is to play college basketball (he hasn’t chosen a school yet, but would prefer to stay in the south) and study sports marketing, eventually working with a professional basketball team. His coach, Reggie Anderson, believes Ingram has the ability to find employment with a basketball team, but not just in an office job. Maybe to actually hit the court. “He does have that potential,” Anderson said. “He’s going to have to go to college and get bigger and stronger. But he has the natural tools, and definitely would have the opportunity to play at that level.” Anderson isn’t just a proud local coach boasting about a star player. While this is his first year at Steinbrenner, he has 18 years of coaching experience. During that time, Anderson has coached a number of players who have advanced to the NBA, including current Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Jodie Meeks. He said that Ingram shares many qualities that his best players have, even beyond sheer talent and ability to score points. They all have humility, a strong work ethic and a desire to always get better, and he believes those qualities are the ones that will help Ingram succeed. “He’s a much better person off the court than he is a player on the court,” Anderson said. “He’s the total package.” For now, Ingram will continue to focus more on team goals than personal accomplishments, even though he’s already extended his school-best record to beyond 1,100 points. He said that his best friends are on the team, and they didn’t even discuss getting 1,000 points before the game in which he set the mark. And, just as Anderson indicated, Ingram will keep trying to get better both on and off the court. He said that achieving success in class has similarities to success in basketball. “I would say you have to be focused and persistent,” Ingram said. “You have to keep at it. If you’re not understanding something, you can ask for help; just like on the court, you can ask for help from your teammates.”www.LakerLutzNews.com January 15, 201416 It’s 1,000 and counting for Ke’Shawn Ingram

Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comLutz Preparatory School is gearing up to add a charter school for middle school students, beginning with the fall 2014-15 school year. While the school will be located on the Lutz Prep campus, 17951 N. U.S. 41, now occupied by a kindergarten through sixth-grade program, the middle school will be considered a separate entity, under the charter approved on Dec. 10 by the Hillsborough County School Board. The final step to the charter, which involves signing the five-year contract, is expected in March. Diane Farmer, principal of Lutz Prep, said the new middle school would open for students in sixth and seventh grades. Eighth grade will be added in the 2015-16 school year. The new charter middle school, like the elementary school, will focus on providing a traditional education, in which all studentsCox Elementary principal wins new state honorBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comYvonne Reins, principal at Cox Elementary School in Dade City, has been named an Elite Principal. She is being honored as part of a new program thats a collaboration between Florida TaxWatch and Learning Systems Institute Principal Leadership Initiative. TaxWatch is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit taxpayer research and government watchdog. The Learning Systems Institute is part of Florida State University. The data-driven awards were based on the ability of students to surpass predicted scores, given their prior achievement, and other student and school characteristics. The predicted student achievement scores were determined by using previous Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test scores. Two elementary, two middle and two high school principals of high-risk Florida public schools will be honored in a Jan. 23 ceremony in Tallahassee, where they will receive statewide recognition and a $5,000 cash prize. Reins, who is from a family of educators, said her mother will accompany her to the ceremony. The award aims to acknowledge that schools that perform well require great leadership, said Dominic M. Calabro, president and chief executive officer of Florida TaxWatch. A principal has to balance many competing demands. Principals are the CEOs of their school. While teachers are on the front lines delivering instruction, it takes excellence at the top to create the atmosphere that nurtures, advances and retains great teachers, he said. High-risk schools were selected for the award because the idea is to demonstrate that all students can, in fact, learn regardless of language barriers, income level or other potential obstacles, Calabro said. An outstanding leader can turn around a school thats not working, but a poor leader can quickly undo excellence, he added. The goal of the program is to study what these principals are doing and to replicate successful approaches elsewhere. Its also important to include these principals in discussions about state educational policy, he said. The principals will be incorporated into a five-year study performed by the Learning Systems Initiative to identify a principals See PRINCIPAL, page12 B.C.

State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, wants to do something this country hasnt seen in 227 years: to call a Constitutional convention, with a goal of adding what he feels is an important amendment to the U.S. Constitution. He wants to force the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate to limit all bills to a single subject. This is about having the federal government start conducting themselves in a professional manner, Simpson said. Most of the frustration we have with our government is that you have something like a spending bill in Congress. They always add on several hundred millions of dollars of something that has nothing to do with the subject they are dealing with. And as a citizen of the state of Florida, I am tired of our federal government being operated this way. Simpson is referring to what are known as riders, typically additional controversial legislation added to a major bill that would likely never pass on its own, and usually used to help negotiate support on a bill from individual members. Those riders can contain all kinds of requests, but more often than not approves some project in a congressmans district that might not have been funded otherwise. Riders also can be used to delay other major bills by adding unrelated items to it those supporting the main bill would be against. Both parties are guilty about the use of riders, said W. Spider Webb Jr., a former Tallahassee-based lobbyist who founded the Single Subject Amendment organization. We are not trying to give Congress a black eye. We are trying to improve the way Americans view Congress. Approval ratings of Congress are at historic lows, a lot of it based on the gridlock found within the walls of its chambers on Capitol Hill. Many on the outside dont believe the word bipartisan exists anymore, and unpopular riders to bills dealing with the federal budget have stalled many of them on the floor of Congress. Riders are business as usual in Congress, but its not that way in Florida and 40 other states, Simpson said. Our federal government should learn to live within its means, have a balanced budget, and pass bills on their own merit, just as states have to, Simpson said. State governments prevent riders either by requiring bills to be single-subject, or giving governors the power to veto specific portions of a bill and approving the rest. President Bill Clinton signed a line-item veto act into law introduced by U.S. Sen. Bob Dole in 1996, but it was declared unconstitutional by the U.S. Supreme Court two years later. Simpson wants Florida to be the first of the 34 states needed to call for a Constitutional convention, which would put Pasco County on the forefront of history. The last time a Constitutional convention was called, it took place in Philadelphia in 1787, and created what would become the U.S. Constitution. If Florida passes this, then other states will take a more serious look at this, Simpson said. Doing a Constitutional amendment is such a large task, and I think it will pick up momentum as more states pass it. All Constitutional amendments since the Bill of Rights have gone through Congress. Simpson and Webb, however, suspect Congress wont be so quick to take on an amendment that would change everything they know in Washington, D.C. A Constitutional convention would bypass Congress, and any approved measure would then require 38 states to ratify. U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, said he likes the idea, but has some reservations. In general, I support the idea of singlesubject legislation, Ross told The Laker/Lutz News in an email. Although it may be more difficult to pass a lot of bills, at least we would remove irrelevant riders that are usually attached to current legislation. The problem, however, is when Congress has to deal with large complicated issues, which would be difficult to break down into individual bills. My concerns with a Constitutional amendment limiting all bills to single-subject bills is that it would restrict the ability to take legislative action in an omnibus fashion in the event of an emergency or catastrophe, Ross said. Webb knows its an uphill battle from here to get a Constitutional convention. In the last 50 years, two attempts to call a Constitutional convention fell just short. And if it were to happen, it might open a plethora of other legal issues especially on the topic of whether a Constitutional convention has to be single-subject or not. Some scholars believe that once a convention is called, any subject can be brought to the table. Its worth that risk, Webb said. This simple procedural, nonpartisan provision would have a profound effect on the way Congress conducts business, he said. As a result, you would be limiting pork barrel spending and you would be increasing the institutional accountability of Congress. Simpsons Senate measure has a companion in the House introduced by State Rep. Halsey Beshears, R-Monticello. Simpson says his measure should have its first committee hearing next month.For more information on the national movement, visit SingleSubjectAmendment.com.

We want to use this dedicated space in The Laker and Lutz News to answer questions we are frequently asked and to share with you information about new innovations that make dentistry pain free and affordable. Can periodontal disease be related to premature and low birth weight babies?Several recent studies suggest that women with periodontal disease may be at more risk. Periodontal disease is a chronic bacteria-induced inflammatory condition that attacks gum tissue and the bone supporting the teeth. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists recently released a statement encouraging pregnant women to maintain their oral health and recommend regular dental cleanings even during pregnancy. According to the American Dental Hygienists Association, recent studies have shown that women with periodontal disease are at 3 to 5 times greater risk of preterm birth than those who are periodontally healthy.Q A Boot Camps In-home Training Individual & Group Training Train with a Pro & GET RESULTS!317-250-2420jessyh_6@hotmail.com JESSY HAVRILESKO Personal Trainer Certified through NASM Pro Soccer Player Speed and Strength Specialist 2 for 1 = $25 per sessionNEW YEARS BUDDY SPECIAL2 for 1 = $25 per session www.LakerLutzNews.com January 15, 20143 ADVERTISINGTERRI WILLIAMSON twilliamson@cnewspubs.comLutz, Wesley ChapelSUZANNE BEAUCHAINE sbeauchaine@cnewspubs.comSales AssistantCAROLYN BENNETT cbennett@cnewspubs.comCustomer ServiceRACHEL THOMPSON rthompson@cnewspubs.comClassified & Directory Sales DESIGN SUBSCRIPTIONS: Paid subscriptions available for those outside delivery area.

MANION Community Editor bcmanion@cnewspubs.com Kumquat Festival aims at old-fashioned, down-home funBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comSomewhere between 40,000 and 50,000 people are expected to head to Dade City on Jan. 25 to attend the 17th annual Kumquat Festival, one of Pasco Countys most popular events.The festival that pays homage to the diminutive orange fruit had humble beginnings. Phyllis Smith, Roxanne Barthle and Carlene Ellberg were looking for a way to help inject new life into downtown Dade City. They put their heads together and decided to have a festival to honor the kumquat.The inaugural festival was on the lawn of the historic Dade City Courthouse. It included a few vendors, some food and some kumquat growers. This year, there are 430 vendors offering fine arts, craft items, food and other services and thats after about 150 vendors were turned away, said John Moors, executive director of the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, which organizes the event. There also will be two entertainment stages, a car and truck show, childrens activities, and a health and wellness section, Moors said. The festival is a magnet for visitors and has raised Dade Citys profile. It was heralded by the Pasco County Tourism Board as the Pasco County Event of the Year in 2012 and has enjoyed the distinction of being named a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society, which selects premier events in 13 Southeastern states. It gives the community a chance to show off its old-fashioned charm and gives eventgoers an opportunity to enjoy a family-friendly event, with free parking and admission, Moors said. Offering the event without charging an admission means that organizers must cover costs from vendor fees and sponsors, and drum up support from volunteers. Fortunately, the festival enjoys the help of the city, county and state governments, as well as corporate sponsors. Community volunteers play a vital role, too, Moors said. Volunteers from Calvary Assembly of God Church, for instance, help set a friendly tone for visitors by doling out bottles of water to people who park in the satellite lot at the Pasco County Fairgrounds.Getting ready for the festival requires thorough planning and some elbow grease, starting a year ahead of the event to make sure all of the logistics are covered, Moors said.On festival day, volunteers are up well before sunrise to pitch in. We have hundreds of local volunteers that start at 4:30 in the morning to get all of the vendors in and get all of our things in and set up, Moors said. By 9 oclock, which is the festival opening time, were all ready to go. Theres plenty of parking with the satellite lots, but last year organizers discovered that those using the shuttles had to wait too long. So, this year there are more shuttle buses, and the bus routes have been tweaked to prevent long waits. Moors expects the festival to attract 5,000 to 10,000 more people this year because of increased marketing efforts. This year, event organizers are making a bigger push to try to entice people from Sun City Center, The Villages, Wesley Chapel, New Tampa and the Nature Coast in Pinellas to make the trip to Dade City. The event has a regional impact, Moors said. Using the same formula Visit Florida uses for fairs and festivals, he believes $1 million exchanges hands over the course of the festival. Of course, much of that money goes to the vendors, but the event has an impact in Dade City, too, he said.Ive had restaurants tell me that they do one weeks worth of business in that one day, he said. Our merchants association is geared up. They know that if they dont make a sale on that day, theres a good possibility that they can make a connection for somebody to come back and visit again and perhaps buy because they like what they see.The king of the event is the kumquat. Described as the little gold gem of the citrus industry by kumquat promoters, the fruit can be found in virtually every form at the festival. Vendors will offer kumquat pie, kumquat salsa, kumquat jam, kumquat jelly, kumquat preserves, kumquat ice cream, and even kumquat lotions and soaps. Its easy to understand why the event attracts big crowds, Moors said. Its a wonderful, wonderful family experience and experience for mature adults who enjoy a good, old-fashioned, downhome unique Florida experience, he said. B C MANION/STAFFJohn Moors holds a poster promoting the 17th annual Kumquat Festival presented by the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce. He thinks the event will draw between 40,000 and 50,000 to the East Pasco County city this year. 17th annual Kumquat FestivalWHEN: Jan. 25, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. WHERE: Historic downtown Dade City DIRECTIONS: Take Interstate 75 and go east on State Road 52; or take U.S. 301.

ASK ABOUT OUR PRIVATE PARTY ROOM THAT SEATS UP TO 30 Brandon expansion wont hurt USAAs local campusBy Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comWith more than 2,000 employees already flocking to its New Tampa campus every day, the United Services Automobile Association, better known as USAA, is already a major economic player in the region. A planned expansion over the next five years may shift new jobs south to Brandon, but the insurance company that grossed nearly $21 billion in revenue in 2012 wont be abandoning its northern campus just off Bruce B. Downs Boulevard anytime soon. Before settling on Brandon to bring in another 1,100 people, USAA had already been looking for new campuses nationwide, according to Robert Hoyland, USAAs vice president and general manager in Tampa, during a recent breakfast meeting with the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce. It was not only land and facility costs that kept USAA in the Tampa Bay region, but Brandon has one asset the insurance company was most interested: veterans. You might ask, Youre up here and (have) been successful, why are you going all the way down here? Hoyland said. If you ever go to Brandon, youll find that a large concentration of active duties and veterans live there. By putting this building there, it helps us with one of our targets as a company that 20 percent of the work force we hire is either veterans or spouses of veterans. The move also gives USAA a chance to pull in more employees from the Pinellas County area, something they enjoyed in their original South Tampa location when the company first came to the area, but lost when it opened its 500,000-square-foot facility in New Tampa more than a decade ago. This will still be our main office, Hoyland assured those attending the breakfast. We still like the employees we get from the main area, and we get a lot from Pasco County. They come as far away as Brooksville to come to our facility. USAA was founded in 1922 after a group of U.S. Army veterans struggled to get affordable car insurance because existing companies at the time thought they were too risky to ensure. The company now boasts more than 10 million members, all of who are, or are associated with, military service members. In recent years, USAA has begun to expand its offerings into mortgages, wealth management and investments. In fact, many of its new positions including 500 in two temporary locations in Tampa focus primarily on those fields, Hoyland said. The new facility in Brandon, not far from where Amazon is planning a distribution facility, will eventually hold 1,100. It will also add up to 5,000 other people nationwide, growing the existing employee base of more than 26,000. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFFThe New Tampa campus of USAA will continue running, even when the company expands its work force to Brandon.

PAID ADVERTISEMENT Chef Caroline tells everyone, If you have trouble remembering, or pronouncing the name Vertige Caf, just imagine that French place at Wilderness Commons. Every morning at 3:00 am, Chef Caroline begins her masterful creations for the day. It may be a Chicken and Brie Cheese Quiche, or Broccoli and Cheddar, Mushroom and Goat Cheese. Its what ever she feels her customers may be in the mood for. Then it is on to the Flat Bread offerings for the day. She ponders for a moment. Should it be Chicken, Red Pepper and Goat Cheese?, Shrimp Chipotle and Mango?, a Flamenkuchen? (thats Bacon and Onion, if you didnt know) And then moves on to some fresh bakery items. A Pumpkin Scone, or Honey and Cinnamon. Fresh baked Muffins include, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, Brown Sugar, Oreo or M&M, and a holiday special Dried Fruit & Mixed Nut Christmas Muffin, to name a few. If you live in the neighborhood and have met Chef Caroline, you already know she was born and raised in France, worked at the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris, France before immigrating to the Washington, D.C area, where she managed the Caf at the world famous Watergate Hotel. After moving to the Tampa area with her family, Caroline told us, I immediately fell in love with the unique atmosphere of the Caf, and knew, this was the new home for my Caf creations, and my family. But its not just about the food Caroline tells us. Our weekly community events are fun for all ages.

He sent this letter from Afghanistan. It is with great pleasure and thanks that I am writing you. I am a Marine officer currently deployed to Afghanistan. I grew up in Lutz and Land O Lakes, so it was great to see packages coming from Wesley Chapel. My team of 16 is here to advise, assist and train an Afghan Army Engineer Battalion in their mission. It has been an amazing experience, and I can say that there are great things happening throughout the entire country of Afghanistan. Thank you so much for the huge care packages our team has received. It truly raised our spirits during the holiday season. Because our team is so small, we were able to share lots of joy with the advisor teams living near us. We have even been sharing with our Afghan Army counterparts. Each of us is tremendously grateful that we are in the thoughts and prayers of so many back in the United States.

The awards are based solely on state Department of Education data. When Reins received word shed been named an Elite Principal, she was shocked. I had no idea that that award even existed, said Reins, who has been at the helm of Cox Elementary for five years. Whats so nice about this award is that it is based on data. Not nominations. Its based on facts. The data doesnt lie. It is what it is. She said her school uses a team approach. This is a tribute to the hardworking staff that I have, Reins said. I told the teachers, Its because of you. This is our award, not mine. But its not just the teachers who deserve kudos, she said. Everybody here in this school is very dedicated to our students in more ways than one, she said. We all truly care about them everyone from the cafeteria staff, who provides nutrition to our students, to the custodial staff that maintains a clean and safe learning environment. There is a culture of high expectation, coupled with support, Reins said. There are no excuses. We know that our children can rise to the occasion, rise to our expectations. We just need techniques and strategies to help them move along. Teachers meet weekly to share strategies and do grade-level planning. It allows them to talk, solve problems, and plan lessons to meet the needs of each and every student, she said. There may be a child that is low in reading, but high in math. Theyre going to emphasize those strengths, Reins said. This significantly affects their (students) self confidence and their eagerness to learn. It affects their whole attitude about school and its relevance to their lives. The teachers use data to inform their instruction. They seek advice from other teachers for strategies to help students succeed. Thats all part of being a professional, Reins said. Teachers also pay attention to what students already know, so they can build on that, Reins said. Cox qualifies for additional funding because it is a school serving many children from low-income households. This year, the priority is to use those funds for additional staff and for professional development for teachers, Reins said. Involving parents is important, too. The teachers try to develop a strong school-home relationship, she said. They want their parents to become more involved in their childrens education. The school soon will host a night for parents of kindergarten, firstand second-grade children to help parents learn how they can help their children with reading strategies. Many parents dont know how to help their children, and its through no fault of their own, Reins said. While the school is committed to academic success, it still has a long way to go, Reins said. This award, however, is appreciated. Its encouraging, Reins said. B.C. MANION/STAFFYvonne Reins has been named an Elite Principal in a new awards program that is based entirely on academic gains being made by students in Floridas high-risk schools. PRINCIPAL, from page 1 have learning plans, Farmer said. A middle school committee has been visiting charter schools and kindergarten through eighth-grade schools in Florida that are known for their excellence to learn about the programs they offer. The committee is researching curriculum options. The plan is to create a schedule that focuses on student achievement, Farmer said. The goal is not merely to add more grades at the campus, but to create an outstanding middle school. In the long-term, Lutz Prep wants to add a high school, too, Farmer said. The middle school, like the elementary school, most likely will draw students not only from Hillsborough County but also from Pasco, Pinellas, Hernando and Polk counties, as well, Farmer said. The principal believes parents are drawn to the school because it has such a dedicated staff. Its not a bit unusual, she said, to see many cars in the parking lot long after the school day has ended because the teachers are so committed to delivering live and engaging instruction. Before teachers are hired to teach at Lutz Prep, they must demonstrate their skills by delivering a lesson to students, Farmer added. Besides having a dedicated staff, Farmer believes another chief strength of the school is the commitment of its parents. Our parents stay engaged, Farmer said. The culture is total family involvement.By state law, all of Lutz Preps fifthand sixth-graders will be given preference for enrolling in the middle school before any new students will be enrolled. The school expects a few seventh-grade openings, and will be filling those through a lottery system.Applications must be received by Feb. 3 at 2 p.m., to be considered for this years lottery. Anyone who would like more information can attend an open house and information session on Jan. 29 at 7 p.m., at the school, or can visit the schools website at LutzPrep.org.SCHOOL, from page 1 THISISWHATAHEARTATTACKFEELSLIKETOAWOMAN.(UNUSUALUPPERBODYPAIN,ORDISCOMFORTINONEORBOTHARMS,BACK,SHOULDER, NECK,JAWORUPPERPARTOFTHESTOMACH) OtherHeartAttackSymptomstoWatchOutFor:Chestpain,discomfort,pressureorsqueezing,liketheresatonofweightonyouShortnessof breathNauseaLight-headednessorsuddendizzinessUnusualfatigueBreakingoutina coldsweat Ifyouexperienceanyoneofthesesymptoms,dontmakeexcusesforthem.

U.S. Department of Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack says the changes are part of an extensive overhaul that will strengthen rural housing markets, increase the availability of rural home loans, and spur the construction of new homes in rural areas. These improvements will help create jobs and enable more people to participate in the rural home loan guarantee program, Vilsack said, in a release. The changes will add significant capital to rural areas and give rural Americans more opportunities to make financing decisions that lay the groundwork for the future prosperity of their families. The changes, which take effect Sept. 1 next year, affect the USDA Rural Developments Single-Family Housing Guaranteed Loan Program. Among other things, it expands the types of lenders who are eligible to participate. With the rule change, any lending entity supervised and regulated by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp., the National Credit Union Administration, the Office of the Comptroller of the Current, the Federal Reserve Banks, or the Federal Housing Finance Board, may underwrite loans guaranteed by the rural development program. This will enable many small community banks and credit unions to participate in the guaranteed loan program, where right now they are not eligible lenders. In another policy change, for the first time, borrowers will be able to choose home loan terms shorter than 30 years. This will result in a significant cost savings for borrowers who qualify for the higher payments, and who want to pay off their loan faster and pay less interest on their loan.Collectively, these changes will make housing loans more readily available to residents in underserved communities, such as those targeted by the USDAs StrikeForce initiative. Through StrikeForce, the USDA works with state, local and community officials to increase awareness of federal programs that help rural residents, businesses and communities.As part of the overhaul, the rural development program has begun a series of enhancements to automate processes, reduce paperwork and reduce loan approval times. Since the beginning of the Obama Administration, more than 700,000 rural residents have bought homes with mortgages guaranteed by USDA Rural Development, according to the release. In many rural areas, the majority of homes are financed with loans underwritten through this program.

I found a little Middle Eastern-flair Lebanese caf that is actually next to a gas station right on U.S. 41 in Lutz called the Gyro Zone. Trust me, dont judge a book by its cover. Even though its next to a gas station, you will be very impressed with the quality of food the owner delivers, and the great service he provides. I have to admit, I have not eaten Middle Eastern food before, but this food is delicious, wholesome and tastes very fresh. And I liked that its something totally different than we are used to with traditional American food. The owner, Abe Srour who was born in Lebanon says that seeing people happy and coming back is what I do this for. He added that 95 percent of his customers are American, and I feel they are looking for something different. We have brought a new cuisine to this community, and people have been very receptive. Everyone that has come in has returned many times.One of the things I love about family restaurants, instead of the big corporate ones, is you really get that family feel from the owners. Abe is such a nice guy, and you can tell he really enjoys serving his customers. Honestly, even though the food is great, its worth a trip, even just to meet this guy! One of the items they specialize in is gyros, which is lamb. If you have never had this before, I encourage you to try it. Its very healthy. I also tried the homemade hummus, and that was a delicious snack to start with. Abe recommended I try the chicken shawarma, even though I had no idea what it was. But I was willing to check it out, and wow, was I surprised. Shawarma is a Turkish word that means turning, so basically the meat is turning on a spindle while its being cooked. It is a vertical rotisserie, and you can choose chicken, beef or gyro.To reduce the carbs, I modified the platter that came with the sauted veggies and rice, and I left off the rice. I believe in eating a higher-fat diet and controlling your blood sugar levels by monitoring your carbs. This helps you lose weight easily, age slower, have ultimate health, and get rid of cravings.The flavors that Abe used are delicious and so unique, I had to control myself not to eat too much (love those to-go boxes). Traditionally, a gyro comes with a wrap, but one thing I like here is they offer it with or without that, and you can just enjoy the meat and veggies. It is just as enjoyable without the excess carbs.Another thing I like is the oil they use a very thick olive oil from Lebanon, which is much better for you than using vegetable oils that many restaurants use. Consuming vegetable oils in excess are linked to inflammation in the body, so you want to reduce those in your food choices.The Gyro Zone is located at 18215 U.S. 41 in Lutz. Its hours are Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., and Sunday from noon to 7 p.m. I encourage you to check it out, and experience Abes skill for cooking great food, and his passion for hospitality.Great place to eat, hidden in plain sight HEALTHY ORDERING Editors Note: Eati n g out i s a staple of Am eri can li fe, but i t i s also one reason why we are heavi er than ever before.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE by Mike Matthew special to The Laker / Lutz NewsJoel McGuire and Eric Robinson, owners of McGuires Beautiful Outdoors, joined forces 10 years ago to create the ultimate lawn care company. One year earlier, Joel had started a chemical application business applying fertilizers and pesticides, and Eric had started a lawn care business. Joel and Eric had worked together in the corporate world a few years earlier. Both left and started their own ventures with just a credit card and a love of the outdoors. After collaborating on a few projects they decided to combine their businesses to create a complete lawn care service. With Joel and Eric, its everything or nothing. They believe in taking care of every aspect of their customers yards. We want to know whats going on with your yard, says Joel. There will be no finger-pointing or passing the buck regarding a problem. We take care of the whole yard, not just one service. They mow and fertilize, mulch and pull weeds, trim bushes and trees (except for very large trees), and manage irrigation. They also provide hardscape design (brick and stone), landscape design and planting services, making sure that the right plants are selected to give customers a lawn theyll love without any of the headaches. We take the worry of the lawn away from our customers, says Joel. We focus on value. We dont have a sales force. We dont use high-pressure tactics or try to scare people into using our services. Customers with questions or concerns speak directly to Joel or Eric. We never promise anything we cant deliver, says Eric. We take a holistic approach to lawn care. You cant focus on only one thing and have a great yard. There is a reason for every problem, says Eric. We dont just treat the symptoms. We find the source of the problem and fix that. We work closely with our customers to give them the results they want. We take a proactive approach to lawn care, says Joel. Just like with health care, we focus on proactive care to prevent problems rather than try to fix it after the problem has taken hold. For example, we want to get fertilization and insecticide products down before any problems begin. Its easier to prevent a problem than to cure it, say Eric. The cost is higher for us initially, but the long term benefits for the customer is worth the additional expense. We save our customers money in the long term. Joel and Eric focus on middle income communities providing a high level of lawn care service at competitive prices. They currently have 1,200 very satisfied customers. Our goal is not to be huge but to be the best in our area, says Joel. We focus on northern Hillsborough and central Pasco counties. Eric added, We do half the yards of our competitors in the same amount of time. Our focus is on quality, not quantity. Most lawn failures occur because someone wasnt paying attention to the big picture. Its not just about fertilization and irrigation. Joel and Eric provide in-house training for all of their staff to ensure their customers receive the very best service. They also maintain their equipment daily. We sharpen our lawn mower blades every day, says Eric.McGuires Beautiful Outdoors Does It All Trust us.

Pasco EDC is a nonprofit organization that promotes economic development in Pasco County. Its a partnership funded by corporate and public investors focused on the economic vitality of the county. We believe it is important to support small business growth in our community, and Pasco EDCs microloan program has been successful in helping entrepreneurs grow their business, says Skip Skairus, senior vice president of CenterState Bank, in a release. More than half of Americans either own or work for a small business, and they create almost two out of every three new jobs in the United States each year, the Pasco EDC said in a release. So far, Pasco EDC has awarded 10 microloans to local businesses, and earlier this year received its first complete loan payoff. Banks and business professionals should refer people to Pasco EDC who may be turned down for a loan because their borrowing needs are too small or they have limited credit history, but have a great business idea, officials said. Once they launch or grow their business, the bank can continue its relationship with them and make the next loan after they have gained more experience and sales history. Loan applicants must be for-profit companies located in Pasco County, and borrowers must show they have the experience and resources to be successful business operators. Proceeds may be used for working capital, inventory, supplies, furniture, fixtures, machinery and equipment, but not to purchase real estate or to refinance existing debt. For information, or to consider donating to the fund, call the Pasco EDC at (813) 9260827, or visit PascoEDC.com.

M ani onbcmanion@cnewspubs.comGrace Community Church of Wesley Chapel has moved its weekly worship service from Wiregrass Ranch High School to Wesley Chapel Elementary School. The new meeting place is in a growing section of Wesley Chapel and around the corner from a 20-acre site that the church is raising money to buy, Pastor Jeff Olsen said. Another reason for moving its Sunday service to the elementary school is because it provides natural opportunities to reach out to young families. Besides having its Sunday service at the school, Olsen anticipates the church becoming a true community partner with the school.The church has set a goal of raising the money it needs for the land by this spring, he said. Construction of the church will require additional fundraising, but Olsen hopes that Grace Community will be able to erect its own building within the next few years.Grace Community is a family-oriented church, which seeks to offer Biblical-relevant messages. During the 10:30 a.m. service, the church offers an interactive childrens program called Grace Harbor, for infants through fifth graders.

One could probably call it a rebuilding year. Just dont use that word when talking to Steinbrenner girls coach J.R. Allen. That whole mindset, I dont allow my kids to think like that, Allen said. To me, thats kind of making an excuse to where you can have an average year. Allens team seems to have received the message because they arent having an average year: The Warriors are currently 20-3, and sit atop Class 7A-District 8 with a 6-1 record. The team began the season with a 12-game winning streak, and their three losses have been to teams with a combined record of 52-7. Allen credits the teams strong start to a suffocating defense: Just five teams have been able to reach the 40-point threshold against them. In fact, he said that the Warriors have kept almost every opponent to at least 20 points below their scoring average. Thats why weve had the success weve had, because this whole team has bought in, heart and soul, to what it really means to play team defense and shut people down, Allen said. Steinbrenner also is good at pulling out a victory in close contests: The team is 4-1 in games decided by six points or less. But that isnt an accident, either. The team specifically practices late-game circumstances that put their players in pressure situations. Whether theyre down by one point with less than a minute left in the game, or they have a small lead to protect and no timeouts remaining if they face that situation in a real game, odds are theyve dealt with something similar in practice. But when it comes to the one main factor in the teams success, sophomore Courtney Hall agrees with her coach. I think definitely our strongest quality is our defense. We just cant be stopped, she said. The teams philosophy is to have everyone on the court provide pressure and make things difficult for the opposing offense. Hall also played for Steinbrenner in her freshman year, though not as a starter. She acknowledges that the previous years team featured players who were on the court together for a long time and knew each other well, and the current team had to find their own chemistry. But theyve done so with a stingy defense and a focus on not allowing the opponent to get second chances at scoring. Hall is Steinbrenners leading rebounder, and said that a big team focus is on making sure there are no easy follow-ups when an opponent tries for points. If youre going to take a shot, youre only getting one shot, and all of us are crashing the boards, she said. While the teams philosophy has earned them a strong record and the top spot in the district, it will be the district tournament and playoffs that will determine how far the Warriors go. And with more than a decade of coaching experience (including coaching boys earlier in his career), Allen has led teams with various skill levels and abilities. But its this Steinbrenner team that has him confident in ways he hasnt been in the past. This is the first time Ive ever been able to say this in 12 years: This team could win a state championship, Allen said. Now will they? Obviously that depends on how we finish and me getting them to absolutely believe that unequivocally with no doubts, and were still working on it. But I truly believe this team could play for a state championship. COURTESY OF J.R. ALLENOlivia Unger, a senior point guard on the Warriors team, reaches for the ball, proving that a strong defense is necessary for success. Steinbrenner is 20-3, and currently leads Class 7A-District 8.By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comOn Dec. 19, senior point guard KeShawn Ingram joined a pretty exclusive club: boys basketball players from Steinbrenner High School who have scored 1,000 points or more in their careers. In fact, its so exclusive that hes the only member. Ingram reached that mark by scoring 25 points in a home game against Sickles. And while the end result was a 69-55 loss for the Warriors, who are going through a challenging season at 6-11 (3-4 in district play), that milestone is a definite bright spot for the program. But the player who set a new standard for boys basketball excellence at Steinbrenner isnt doing much celebrating. The teams lack of wins weighs more on his mind than his personal accomplishment. Dont get me wrong, I like it. Im proud of myself, but its not my first concern, Ingram said about setting the mark. The main goal is for my team to go as far as we can. The Warriors are having no problem scoring points: With Ingrams help, they lead their district in points favored by a comfortable margin. In fact, the next closest team is more than 150 points back. Defense, however, has been a problem, as they also have the most points against also more than 150 points ahead of the second-worst mark in Class 7A-District 8. Ingram acknowledges the defensive issues and says the team is working on techniques to improve for the rest of the season. If it seems unusual that a high-scoring senior is more worried about team defense than his personal offensive records, it might be because KeShawn Ingram is an unusual athlete. His 6-foot-1, 165-pound frame is well-suited to sports, but his 3.66 GPA shows that his focus is on more than racking up points on the court. School always comes first for me, Ingram explained. If the team doesnt have practice after school, homework is at the top of his agenda once he gets home, with extra basketball work coming later in the evening. His goal is to play college basketball (he hasnt chosen a school yet, but would prefer to stay in the south) and study sports marketing, eventually working with a professional basketball team. His coach, Reggie Anderson, believes Ingram has the ability to find employment with a basketball team, but not just in an office job. Maybe to actually hit the court. He does have that potential, Anderson said. Hes going to have to go to college and get bigger and stronger. But he has the natural tools, and definitely would have the opportunity to play at that level. Anderson isnt just a proud local coach boasting about a star player. While this is his first year at Steinbrenner, he has 18 years of coaching experience. During that time, Anderson has coached a number of players who have advanced to the NBA, including current Los Angeles Lakers shooting guard Jodie Meeks. He said that Ingram shares many qualities that his best players have, even beyond sheer talent and ability to score points. They all have humility, a strong work ethic and a desire to always get better, and he believes those qualities are the ones that will help Ingram succeed. Hes a much better person off the court than he is a player on the court, Anderson said. Hes the total package. For now, Ingram will continue to focus more on team goals than personal accomplishments, even though hes already extended his school-best record to beyond 1,100 points. He said that his best friends are on the team, and they didnt even discuss getting 1,000 points before the game in which he set the mark. And, just as Anderson indicated, Ingram will keep trying to get better both on and off the court. He said that achieving success in class has similarities to success in basketball. I would say you have to be focused and persistent, Ingram said. You have to keep at it. If youre not understanding something, you can ask for help; just like on the court, you can ask for help from your teammates.www.LakerLutzNews.com January 15, 201416 Its 1,000 and counting for KeShawn Ingram
