ALL-NEW 2014 SHOW with live orchestra By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe Lutz Volunteer Fire Department disbanded at the beginning of 2013, but its contributions to the community will live on through a new endowed scholarship fund to benefit Lutz students. The fire department was forced to disband on Jan. 1, 2013, after the Hillsborough County Commission decided to replace the county’s six remaining volunteer firehouses with professional firefighters. Since then, the board of the Lutz Volunteer Fire Association Inc., has liquidated the volunteer fire department’s assets and has established a scholarship fund for Lutz students. The endowment fund was established with $260,000, said Jay Muffly, former president of the firefighter’s association. The endowment will provide at least one $2,500 scholarship for a female and male student who is attending or will enter an accredited university or college. To qualify for a scholarship, the student must live in Lutz. The firefighters association’s board selected the GFWC Lutz-Land O’ Lakes By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comKristen Ingle is looking forward to Shen Yun 2014 because she had such a great time attending the show at Mahaffey Theater with her daughter last year. Ingle’s adopted daughter, Macy, was born in China. Ingle believes Shen Yun provides her 9year-old a chance to become more familiar with the culture of her birthplace. “It’s definitely worth seeing,” said Ingle of South Tampa, who is bringing along her mother and some friends who have also adopted two daughters from China. “I like that it tells the stories of the history of China, all of the folklore. And the music — I really liked that they had both Western and Chinese instruments.” She thinks it’s great entertainment for people of any age. The children like it because it’s so visual, Ingle said. In fact, Macy said her favorite parts were the costumes and the dancers who performed with teacups on their heads. “It’s a story told through dance and music,” Ingle said. “The story really comes through.” Shirley Hu, a volunteer coordinator for Shen Yun, said she first saw the show while living in New York. “I fell in love with it because it’s about the revival of the traditional Chinese culture, which I truly believe in,” said Hu, a native of Taiwan. “Traditional Chinese culture is about moral values and ethics.” Shen Yun, which translates into “the beauty of heavenly beings dancing,” is based in New York. It has three touring companies of about 100 members each, which travel through the United States, Asia and Europe. Hu is handling the logistics for the upcoming Shen Yun 2014 performances Feb. 5 through Feb. 8, at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. The two-and-a-half-hour show, which includes a 15-minute intermission, features about 20 pieces, including dancers accompanied by orchestral music and vocal performances.

So who does Central Pasco Veterinary Care have? They have Vern Richardson. “I love animals. I’m a dog lover. I’ve had them for years,” he said. But Richardson’s pug, Thor, isn’t the only animal that benefits from his fondness for pets. And now he’s being recognized for it. Richardson, who actually plays Santa Claus at Central Pasco Veterinary Care’s fundraisers, won the 2013 Pasco Hernando Veterinary Medical Association Dalmatian Award, given to local residents who go above and beyond with their efforts to help veterinarians in their area. Award winners are recognized as special contributors, volunteering their time for charitable causes and community service projects. In Richardson’s case, he poses with his red suit (just a costume) and white beard (it’s real) with four-legged friends in the “Pet Photos with Santa Day” project. The annual event, organized by Dr. Jo Ann Daniels and her staff, raises money to purchase pet oxygen masks for local fire trucks when they provide aid to furry victims as well as humans. Daniels, the medical association’s vice president, nominated Richardson for the award and was happy that her regular See AWARD, page12 Scholarships keep local legacy alive

But it won’t be cheap as landowners in the neighborhood fork over thousands of dollars over the next 15 years to pay for the project.That’s business as usual for anyone wanting to pave any of the more than 500 miles of dirt road in the county, said Michael Garrett, director of the county’s Public Works Department. Many of those roads were part of subdivisions, or are used only by those living in those neighborhoods. But others are part of what are described as rural neighborhoods, where dirt roads have been grandfathered into the county’s overall street plans. “The problem is that when you have very large lots, the road becomes very expensive to build,” Garrett said. “There is not a lot of interest in getting them done.” All but about 20 miles of the dirt roads are located in the central and eastern parts of the county, Garrett said. Neighborhood residents come to the county quite regularly asking for roads to be paved, but typically only one or two neighborhoods are done each year — and only after landowners agree to pay a special assessment. In Pasco Lake Estates, that averages out to about $7,600 for each lot. If that cost is spread out over 15 years, the county will add interest of about $2,100. That’s along the lines of what Bonnie Rupe and her neighbors were told a couple years back when they asked the county to pave their Zephyrhills neighborhood. Rupe and her family moved to Miller Avenue a decade ago from Wesley Chapel, and expected the dirt roads just outside of city limits would be paved in just a couple years. “We have three vehicles, and we’re constantly washing our cars because of the dust that flies up from the road,” Rupe said. “There are a lot of people on our street here with asthma problems, and other health conditions, and I’m convinced it’s because of the dirt road.” Several streets in Rupe’s neighborhood are dirt, including 20th Street, which borders to the north. But unlike Pasco Lake Estates, none of the roads are part of a subdivision. And many of Rupe’s neighbors would be hard-pressed to call the area “rural,” as it’s literally blocks from the strip malls of County Road 54, and a short jaunt from Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. A vote to pave the roads throughout that particular area, where there are at least 60 lots lining less than 1.5 miles of road, failed. Not because people didn’t want paved roads, but because the $6,000 price tag to pave was just too high. “There’s no way I could afford that right now,” Rupe said. “I don’t think a lot of us here can afford that.” The problem, Garrett said, is there’s just no money to do it. The county is working on ways to fund current road maintenance and construction needs, and even with an expanded gas tax in coming years, that could still prove to be tricky. Instead, costs for those wanting to convert to paved roads are passed on to the owners of lots lining those roads. A dozen owners in Pasco Lake Estates will shoulder a third of the overall cost. One owner, Ollie Williams, would be responsible for $38,620, plus an additional $11,500 in interest if he pays over 15 years. Habitat for Humanity, which maintains four lots in the neighborhood designed to give people an interest-free shot at owning a home, will be on the hook for just under $27,000, along with $8,000 in interest. “I feel that it’s not fair that they have to charge us,” Rupe said. “They are paving streets in the county all the time, and we pay taxes to the county. We should have paved roads as well.” MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFFOff i c i al s e s t i mate that there are s ome 500 m i le s of unpaved road s i n Pa s co County, and the only way to pave them is to charge a s pec i al a ss e ss ment to tho s e who l i ve on them.The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties is scheduling appointments for families in both counties looking to get childcare assistance while they seek or maintain employment. Right now, there is no waiting list for School Readiness services, or subsidized childcare, according to a release. Last year, the waiting list reached 1,800 children looking for services. School Readiness funds pay a portion of a childcare costs for lowto moderate-income families so they may seek and maintain employment to support their families or attend school. Eligibility is determined by comparing federal poverty guidelines to both family size and income. Families may earn no more than 150 percent of the federal poverty level upon initial eligibility. Families who believe they may be eligible for School Readiness assistance may call or visit one the Coalition’s three offices at:  Dade City Business Center, 15000 U.S. 301.

B y D i ane Kortu sPublisherJust about every conversation I’ve had this past week with family, friends or customers quickly gravitated to reports of the shooting at Cobb Theatres/Grove 16 & CineBistro in Wesley Chapel. And I bet it was the same with you. Most of us here in Pasco and north Hillsborough go to movies at The Grove and can easily visualize the setting. We know the layout — theaters one through eight are to the left, and nine through 16 are to the right. We’ve eaten popcorn from the same popper that made the snack that is said to have escalated an encounter between two patrons into the deadly scene. And if you’re like me, the thought crossed your mind that you could have been in the theater when it happened. You too may have been bothered at one time or another by someone close by using their cell phone in blatant disregard for the rules and for others. There’s little I can add to the discussion of what happened and why, and how this tragedy could have been prevented if only some common sense had prevailed. We all feel horrible that this shooting happened in our community, and because it did, it feels personal and haunting. You may have noticed that we do not write about the shooting anywhere else in this week’s paper. And you may wonder why that is. How could your local weekly newspaper ignore such a huge news event that has received national and international coverage? Here’s why. It is not our role to regurgitate news that already has been covered 24/7 by every news organization out there. Within 48 hours of the shooting, you had all the reporting and analysis you’d ever want or need. Sometimes we do write about state or national news originating in our circulation area if we can localize the story with information specific for our readers. An example is our story about the $590 million Powerball ticket that was sold to an elderly Zephyrhills resident last May. Before the winner came forward, B.C. Manion wrote about problems that often arise from such instantaneous wealth, interviewing a local psychologist, financial planner and attorney. This story worked in our format because B.C. talked to experts who also are our neighbors. And because winning the lottery is a fantasy we all share, B.C.’s story gave us helpful suggestions we could all dream about using someday. My staff and I talked about to how best to cover the Wesley Chapel shooting in today’s paper, a week and a half after it happened. And we decided there really was no local angle that was not already covered by Tampa’s many news outlets in print, broadcast, cable and digital. In fact, we thought some of the stories pursued seemed forced, and we questioned their validity and the amount of attention they received. So instead of a story, we thought this column was the best way to acknowledge the shooting and to let you know why it is not on our front page this week. Why we didn’t cover the Cobb shooting PUBLISHER’S COLUMN Dale Mabry Shell station soldB y Mi chael H i n m anmhinman@cnewspubs.comA gas station near the busy intersection of North Dale Mabry Highway and Van Dyke Road was sold last month, saving it from foreclosure.AJA Properties of Clearwater LLC bought the Shell gas station located at 17803 N. Dale Mabry Highway on Dec. 23 for $1.5 million, according to Hillsborough County property records. The station was built in 1999, and is a little more than 3,000 square feet, including a car wash.The station was previously owned by Jennifer & Mary Kaye Inc., which had purchased the location in 2002 for $2.2 million. Mills 2011 LLC, which held the mortgage on the property, began foreclosure proceedings last September, according to records. The sale was secured after Risser Oil, a Clearwater gasoline distributor, released its rights of first refusal to buy the gas station. The new owner is associated with Adams Tank & Lift, a construction and installation company in Clearwater. The two companies — Adams Tank and AJA Properties —share the same principal, Andrew J. Adams, as well as its primary address, according to state corporation records.

Museum in Largo conveys the human side of warVisitors to the Armed Forces History Museum will get the sense that they are stepping into scenes from war. Smoke drifts through a dim room, soldiers aim their guns at the enemy, and the rat-a-tat-tat sounds of gunfire fill the air in the museum’s World War I bunker. Exhibit cases in the room contain personal items that soldiers carried with them. They include foot powder, a razor, prayer books, a sewing kit and binoculars. These items of daily living convey a sense of the human side of war. The museum — in a squat warehouse a bit off the beaten track — contains a treasure trove of war artifacts and military memorabilia. Not only can visitors see what soldiers carried, but they also can see what military personnel wore, the weapons they used and the vehicles they rode in or drove. More than 100,000 items are on display at the largest nongovernment funded museum of its kind in the state, said Cindy Bosselmann, the museum’s director of marketing and events. Even before visitors step inside the 35,000-square-foot building at 2050 34th Way N., in Largo, they’ll see military vehicles in the parking lot, including a helicopter and a Russian MiG jet. About 90 percent of the items on exhibit were donated by retired businessman John J. Piazza Sr., who began amassing his vast collection more than a half-century ago. Piazza was 17 when he got his first military item — a World War I German mortar grenade given to him by his girlfriend. Over the years, he continued collecting items, and he created a mobile museum that he drove around to the independent living centers, assisted living facilities and nursing homes that he owned. He used his traveling museum as a marketing tool, offering people a chance to see his collection and to entice potential customers to find out more about the facilities he owned. After he retired, Piazza decided to create a nonprofit museum so that younger generations could learn about military conflicts, and to honor the men and women who have served in the armed forces. As patrons stroll through the military history center, they can hear the sounds of war and can listen to oral histories recorded by military personnel who witnessed such pivotal events as the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima’s Mt. Suribachi, and the D-Day landing of U.S. forces on Utah Beach. It took Piazza and a team he hired about 18 months to create the exhibits that the now 75-year-old designed. The idea was to give visitors enough information to explain the exhibit, but not so much that it overwhelms them, said Piazza, who visited museums and looked through books before designing the exhibits. “I wanted people to come in and have a wow effect,” Piazza said. The museum includes displays featuring artifacts from World War 1, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In one room, visitors will get a chance to learn more about the Japanese attack on U.S. Naval forces in Pearl Harbor. They’ll see model warships from the 1970 movie “Tora! Tora! Tora!” and can view black-and-white film footage of actual attacks. They can also see a chair that once was in the office of Adm. Yamamoto Isoroku, who masterminded Japan’s Pearl Harbor attacks. In another room, devoted to exhibits for the U.S. Navy, visitors can peer through a periscope to get a view of the museum’s parking lot. Patrons also can listen to the story of Capt. Leonard Schroeder, the first to step foot on Utah Beach during the invasion. Some of Schroeder’s personal artifacts are on display in a glass case, including a pair of boots from that historic day. As visitors step into another room, they’ll see a French village scene, complete with a soldier dangling from a parachute caught on a church spire. The scene portrays a partial replica of the church Sainte-Mere-Eglise in the Cotentin Peninsula near the coast of Normandy, France. Germans had occupied the town for four years until U.S. forces arrived on June 6, 1944, in Operation Boston, giving the town a claim of being one of the first liberated in the invasion. The paratrooper depicted in the museum was Pvt. John M. Steele, who was taken prisoner by the Germans, but later rescued. “There’s still an effigy (of Steele) hanging there (on the church), in real life,” Piazza said, to serve as a reminder of what happened. Another scene in the museum sets the scene for the heroic actions of 1st Lt. Baldomero Lopez as he scales a wall. After topping the wall, he smothered a grenade to prevent it from killing the troops that were with him. Lopez, a graduate of Hillsborough High School, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, and a state veterans nursing home in Land O’ Lakes bears the name of the war hero. Another highlight in the museum is a tribute to prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action. There’s also a recreation of Rosie’s bar, made famous by the television series, “M.A.S.H.” Other notable items on display include a uniform worn by Saddam Hussein and a playing card depicting him as the ace of spades from a deck of Iraqi war criminal recognition cards. In the Salute to Services room, which is the first one visitors see coming in, there are crisp uniforms on display in clear cases. They represent every branch of the U.S. military, dating back to the Civil War.Other rooms show off the museum’s collection of arms, grenades and land mines, and throughout the museum there are vehicles, which are fully operational. That collection includes jeeps, tanks, a 1942 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and an amphibious vehicle that can operate on land or water.Other items of interest include an exhibit honoring the contribution of the Tuskegee Airmen and a wall of heroes, which features shadow boxes containing personal items, such as letters, photographs, post cards and dog tags. Piazza, who is a former U.S. Marine, is at the museum nearly every day. He said it’s gratifying to see the war veterans when they tour through the museum. They often react when they see an item they would have used in the field. “Emotionally, it puts them back in the trenches,” Piazza said. He also enjoys visits from school groups. “What continues to amaze me is the interest of these young kids – fourth-, fifthand sixth-graders,” Piazza said. “They are really, really interested. They ask really good questions.” COURTESY OF THE ARMED FORCES MILITARY MUSEUMThe Armed Forces Military Museum welcomes visitors at 2050 34th Way N., in Largo.www.LakerLutzNews.com January 22, 201411 Worth the TripBy B.C.

When Chinese and Western music come together, they produce what Hu describes as “a glorious sound.” Orchestral music plays as dancers glide gracefully across the stage, using the movement of their body, as well as facial expressions, to tell stories. The dances incorporate high-flying leaps, spins and acrobatic moves, but are much more than sheer technique, according to interviews by principal dancers on YouTube videos. Shen Yun performers seek to convey a spiritual connection behind each dance movement and musical note, they said. They seek to express of joy, sorrow, delight, grief, anger, illness and majesty by immersing themselves into the mindset and emotions of the characters they portray. “You can actually see the facial expressions,” Hu said. “I always feel what makes the show so successful is because of the spirituality behind it.” The pieces move from one story to another, sharing Chinese folklore and legends, as well as true stories. The dancers wear handmade costumes, representing everything from the Tang Dynasty’s Raiment of Rainbows and feathers to imperial dragon robes, coronets and cloud caps. They wear colorful flowing robes, as well as the attire of the Manchurian Tibet, Dai, Mongol and Uyghur ethnic groups. More than 400 costumes are used in a single show, Hu said. The show also uses a 3-D backdrop to help bring stories to life. Performers tour for half of the year then return to New York to prepare for the next year’s tour. It takes thousands of hours to hone their technique and learn the choreography. Each year, they tour with an entirely new show. “Every year, I look forward to different stories,” Hu said. “A lot of the stories are the stories I was taught by my mom.” Request your Appointment Online: www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Tomas Figueroa-Nieves, MDJoin us inWELCOMING16646 N.

Members of the club said they were delighted by the fire association’s decision to allow them to select the scholarship recipients. “We feel that we’re being honored by the volunteer fire department,” said Kay Taylor, the new president for the woman’s club. The agreement specifies that at least two scholarships of at least $2,500 be awarded each year, while funds are available, said Gordon T. Brown, a former fire association board member, who drew up the agreement with the woman’s club. But the agreement also allows flexibility to award more scholarships and to increase the amount of the scholarship. At a rate of two scholarships a year, at $2,500 each, the endowment fund would last more than a half-century, even without earning any interest. Obviously, it could last much longer, depending upon the prevailing interest rates and if the fund continues to attract contributions, Muffly said. The firefighter’s association couldn’t think of a better way to give back to the community and to honor the men and women who devoted thousands of hours to the firefighter’s association, Muffly said. The volunteer department responded to house fires, car crashes and emergency medical calls, Brown said. “We existed before there was a Hillsborough County fire department,” Brown said. “We raised our own money. We bought our own engines. Our community supported us for 61 years.” So, when they liquidated the association’s board considered this question: “What’s the best way to give back to the community?”The size of the endowment fund means that the legacy of the volunteer firefighters will live on, Brown said. “This thing could go on for generations,” he said, adding he can’t think of a better cause to support than scholarships. “A nation’s greatest asset is its children.” Before establishing the endowment, the firefighter’s association awarded two $2,500 scholarships last year to Mary Canton and Dylan Waddle. COURTESY OF PATRICIA SERIOThe Lutz Fireman’s Scholarship Fund will provide annual scholarships to benefit Lutz students. Shown here at a ceremony celebrating the new fund are, from left, Ben Fisher, Jay Muffly and Gordon T. Brown, of the volunteer fire association’s board; and Barbara Nicholson, Kay Taylor and Rosie Heim, of the GFWC Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club. LEGACY, from page 1 helper for the past four years has finally been recognized for his work. “We’re very fortunate to have such a wonderful person who volunteers his time, and who has the same philosophy as ours — trying to give back to the community, supporting veterinarians and supporting veterinary medicine,” Daniels said. This past year, the photos enabled Daniels to provide five sets of masks for fire trucks. Each set of oxygen masks has three different sizes, allowing fire rescue personnel to help a variety of pets when the need arises. Daniels also provides training on how to use them.And the masks are used. Just a few months ago, first responders were able to resuscitate a cat thanks to the special equipment. “These pet oxygen masks have already saved lives in the community, and (Richardson) has been a big part of that,” she said.Helping save the lives of beloved pets might be a new experience for Richardson, but posing for photos as Santa Claus is a familiar one. He used to work in malls in South Florida before settling in Land O’ Lakes. Having pets on his lap is different than posing with humans, and he prefers his current job to his old one. “I think dogs are easier to handle than children,” he said with a jolly laugh. While Thor lives a comfortable, carefree life in Richardson’s care, he knows many animals don’t enjoy those luxuries. That’s why he often donates a 50-poung bag of dog food when he goes shopping to stock up on his own supplies. Like many animal lovers, Richardson said it bothers him to hear about pets that aren’t being cared for properly, and it motivates him to help make sure they have an opportunity to live healthier, happier lives. “Every time I see some story about an abused animal, I just cringe,” he said. “It just amazes me that people can do that. Whatever we can do to help out these animals, especially if they’re homeless or abandoned or sick, I’m good with that.” While Richardson was both appreciative and surprised when he found out he was the Dalmatian Award recipient, Daniels said he’s been a rare and valuable find for a veterinarian. “He’s just really special,” she said. “He’s just been really generous over the years in his volunteerism and his generosity toward helping animals.” The orchestra combines Western classical music along with music from ancient Chinese instruments including the gong, the dizi and the erhu. The dizi is a bamboo flute, and the erhu is a two-stringed instrument, sometimes called a Chinese violin, which dates back 4,000 years.AWARD, from page 1 CULTURE, from page 1

But this weekend, history is coming to Zephyrhills. In fact, it’s landing at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport Wednesday afternoon. Touching ground are three planes straight out of World War II: The B-24 Liberator, the P-51 Mustang, and the B-17 Flying Fortress. “It’s one thing to see a plane behind a rope collecting dust, but to be able to physically crawl through one and have a close look at all the various compartments — it’s hard to imagine how these young men were able to do any of this to start with,” said Hunter Chaney, the director of marketing for the Collings Foundation, which hosts the annual Wings of Freedom Tour. “These are bare bone minimalist aircraft made to carry and drop bombs, and spread a lot of lead all over anyone trying to stop them. Crews would have to sit in these planes for hours at a time, and if you lost a glove, you’re automatically facing frostbite.” The tours at Zephyrhills Airport are much different than a trip to the Smithsonian. These are fully restored — and operational — planes, some of only the few remaining from World War II. Visitors can crawl right through the plane, sit in the cockpit, and for a little more money, actually ride on the plane. Tour tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children (free for World War II veterans), while flights start at $450 for the B-24 or B-17, and $2,200 for the P-51. Chaney acknowledges the cost to fly is steep, but it’s not cheap to fly planes that were built decades ago. The B-17 itself costs about $4,500 per hour in flight, and requires about 10 hours of maintenance work for every hour it’s in the air.Every dollar raised goes back into the continued maintenance of the planes, all operated by the nonprofit Collings Foundation. The organization started in 1979 in Stow, Mass., with a focus on preserving history. While Collings began with antique cars, in the 1980s, it really began to focus on airplanes, and have been touring these restored planes around the country for the last 25 years.Zephyrhills will be the 2,831st stop of the tour, which usually hits more than 100 cities each year, connecting with up to 3.5 million people. “It really appeals to the curiosity of people from all walks of life,” Chaney said. “It’s such a rare opportunity to touch and experience and interact with this history, particularly when we come into areas like Zephyrhills.” This is the second time the Wings of Freedom Tour has made a stop in Zephyrhills, and it might not have happened this time if it weren’t for airport manager Mike Handrahan, Chaney said.“He has been in aviation for years now, and he’s helped us bring the tour into all the various airports he’s worked at,” Chaney said. The B-24 coming to Zephyrhills was built in 1944 for the U.S. Army, and saw combat in the Pacific Theater with the Royal Air Force. The Liberator is the last of its kind still flying, which is surprising considering it also was the most mass-produced plane in history.The B-17, known as “Nine-O-Nine,” was finished too late to see actual combat, but it was subjected to the effects of three nuclear bomb detonations. Soon after it was restored in the mid-1980s, the “Nine-O-Nine” had an accident in western Pennsylvania. No one was killed, but the plane was not expected to fly again. It took thousands of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars in donations, but the plane was fully restored and has flown without incident now in nearly 2,400 stops. The P-51 was designed as a one-seater, but it was Collings that not only restored the plane, but added additional seating so that even passengers without a pilot license could experience the Mustang in flight. The planes will be open to the public Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. Flights usually take place before and after ground tour times. For more information, call (800) 5688924. “We call these guys part of the Greatest Generation,” Chaney said. “What they did and what they endured is incredible. However awful World War II was, we would not have been able to win it without them.” The Wings of Freedom Tour travels the nation as a flying tribute to the flight crews who flew the B-17s, B-24s and other aircraft. It also remembers the soldiers, sailors and airmen they helped protect. The B-17 and B-24 were the backbone of the American effort during the war from 1942 to 1945.

Through the end of the year, Moore — a Wesley Chapel resident who founded CareFirst Home Care in 2004 — has raised $40,715, which is four times as much as his opponent, Bob Robertson. Both are running as Republicans. Moore’s biggest boost came just after Thanksgiving from Tarpon Springs businessman Lew Friedland, who contributed $8,000 through various corporations. Robertson, a self-employed asset manager from Zephyrhills, loaned his campaign $3,000 right at the start. In his first few months campaigning, he raised more than $3,500 additional cash donations from outside Florida, primarily in Maryland and Pennsylvania. At the beginning of November, he picked up $1,500 more from companies controlled by Jeffrey Greenacre on Gunn Highway. Commissioner Henry Wilson, who looks to hold on to his District 4 seat, is the only candidate to have filed so far. He’s raised $5,750 through the end of December.Crooked Creek Ranch holds fundraiserRepublican candidates for the state House — Danny Burgess, Shawn Harrison, Chris Latvala and Chris Sprowls — will raise money through a Wild Game Dinner at Crooked Creek Ranch, 29325 Darby Road, Dade City, Jan. 31 beginning at 5 p.m. Donations will be accepted up to the state maximum of $1,000 per individual to support each campaign. Burgess, the current mayor of Zephyrhills, is facing a primary against Minerva Diaz in District 38, the seat currently held by Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. Harrison also has a Republican primary challenger for District 63, Bret Wedding, for a seat currently held by Mark Danish, D-Tampa. Latvala has filed to run in District 67 in a seat currently held by Ed Hooper, RClearwater. He’s facing Christopher Shepard and Frederick Thomson so far in the primary. Sprowls is a candidate for District 65, in a seat currently held by Carl Zimmerman, DPalm Harbor. He is expected to face off with Debbie Faulkner in his primary. For details about the dinner, visit VoteDannyBurgess.com. Ross holds first town hallU.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, hosted his first telephone town hall meeting of 2014 on Jan. 14, with nearly 5,000 constituents participating. The call addressed a number of questions, from the country’s debt, the Affordable Care Act, immigration, the IRS, foreign aid, balancing the budget, Social Security and unemployment benefits. Anyone with a question, or who might be interested in joining a future town hall meeting, should email Ross through DennisRoss.House.gov/contact, or call his district office at (863) 644-8215. Ross so far is facing former WFTSChannel 28 investigative reporter Alan Cohn, a Democrat, for his Congressional seat in November.Bilirakis endorses Moore for commissionMike Moore’s run to replace Pat Mulieri on the Pasco County Commission got a boost from U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, who endorsed the Wesley Chapel businessman for the seat. Bilirakis had presented Moore with a North Tampa Chamber of Commerce leadership award in 2006, and has been following his career ever since, according to a release. “Mike has the required character traits to help take Pasco County to the next level,” Bilirakis said in a statement. “Mike understands that small businesses are the engine that drive our economy. He knows that cutting red tape and lowering taxes is what it takes to allow businesses to thrive.”Moore’s previous endorsements include State Sen. Wilton Simpson, Sen. John Legg, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, U.S. Rep. Will Weatherford and Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning, among others.So far, Moore is running against another Republican, Bob Robertson, for Pasco County Commission District 2. Two elections offices reopeningThe Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections recently hosted a grand reopening of its regional offices, located at 12022 Anderson Road in Tampa, and 10439 Gibsonton Drive in Riverview. These are the same offices that were added during the 2012 election cycle, and will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They join two permanent offices, one in downtown Tampa, and the other in Brandon.

The victory meant the team completed district play for the season with a perfect 16-0 record. If anything, they might have wondered how they gave up two goals. Adding those two, the team gave up just four goals in 16 district games for Class 3A-District 8. On the other side of the ledger, the Seahawks scored 101 goals in those same contests. They registered 13 shutouts, including six by the score of 8-0. While they’ve dominated their district, they’re almost as good in overall play. They’ve collected a 23-1-1 record with 138 goals scored. But amazingly, that record is actually a slight drop-off from last year, when they won 30 straight games before losing in the Class 3A state semifinals to Ponte Vedra 2-1. By the numbers, it might look like the Seahawks are an offense-first team. But according to Coach Sam Koleduk, that’s not really the case. “We’re more of a complete team, I think,” he said. “Right now we’re the leading scoring team in the country, and we’ve also given up the least amount of goals, also.” There are a few factors that go into building the kind of success they’re having at Sunlake, Koleduk said. The team has a lot of players who also participate in local clubs, so they’re not just thinking about soccer for their school schedule. That extra work allows them to stay on top of their game so they’re ready to play at practice and during games.Their junior varsity program also is strong — the team was undefeated this past season. Koleduk said it allows him to replace skilled players who graduate with talented, experienced athletes who are ready to play at the varsity level. Finally, having a good team allows them to adjust their style of play to put more pressure on their opponent. Instead of a more traditional 4-4-2 formation — with four players in the back, four in the middle and two attacking up front — Sunlake often plays a 3-4-3 formation, putting an extra attacker up front and forcing an opponent into a more defensive posture from the start. But that type of attack also means fewer players on defense if the opponent breaks through, so the goalkeeper has to be ready to make the necessary saves. Fortunately for the Seahawks, sophomore Danny Hrenko has been up to the task. Picking up where he left off as a freshman, Hrenko is frustrating opponents on the rare occasions they create a scoring opportunity. He said that while he’s the man in front of the net, his teammates are the ones who deserve credit for shutting down opponents. “The key is really my defense, to be honest,” Hrenko said. “It’s all about organizing them.” Even when there are fewer players in the back, the team’s style doesn’t put him in difficult situations, and the defenders are able to neutralize the opponent most of the time. But when the team has had relatively close games, Hrenko has usually helped them come out of them with a win. He said he enjoys making tough saves and proving the team is as tough defensively as it is prolific on offense. “I like when I have a good shot against me and I make a good save. It makes me feel like I’ve done my part on this team,” he said. With many players doing their part — sophomore Remi Pimm leads the nation in scoring — getting a step farther than last year seems like a reasonable goal. And while Koleduk — who has been with the team since the school opened back in 2007 — acknowledges his Seahawks are a talented team with a lot of promise, he said there are more variables that go into a trip to the state finals and a potential championship. And not all of them are in the team’s control. “We’ve got to stay focused, and it sounds funny, but a little bit of luck,” he said. “To make it all the way through without losing, you have to have a little luck on your side also, I think. “Basically, you have to stay focused and healthy.” COURTESY OF SAM KOLEDUKA perfect 16-0 record, and 23-1-1 overall, has the Sunlake Seahawks in position to go all the way to the top in boys soccer. And after a disappointing loss in the state semis last year, they’re ready to do just that.Sheriff’s golf tourney raises $15,000 for PPALThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportPasco Sheriff’s Charities has donated $15,000 to the Pasco Police Athletic League, based on money raised from last year’s golf tournament.

Rick Scott to expand the school sales tax holiday to 10 days. “It would be a great boost for Florida’s families and for our retailers,” said Rick McAllister, president and chief executive of the Florida Retail Federation, in a release. “It gives many families whose paychecks come on two-week cycles another chance to take advantage of the sales that retailers offer.” Retailers typically compete with sales and markdowns to attract shoppers during the tax holiday, McAllister said, and that increases revenue for stores. Scott last week proposed to increase the holiday — which typically applies to certain school supplies and electronics — from the three-day event that has been used since 2010. The federation points to a study by the Washington Economics Group that said during a three-day period in 2010, overall sales jumped by $293 million, and taxable sales increased by $115 million. The study also pointed out that retailers typically tend to hire more people during the tax holiday, sometimes by as much as 20 percent. But not everyone agrees. A report last year from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy in Washington, D.C., says such tax holidays do little to help lower income families, and hurt state budgets from the loss of revenue during that time. In 2012, for example, the three-day tax holiday cost Florida more than $28 million in lost revenue. “Lawmakers must understand that they cannot resolve the unfairness of sales taxes simply by offering a short break from paying these taxes,” the ITEP report said. “Policymakers seeking to achieve greater tax fairness would do better to provide a COURTESY OF CIEL B IRKETT Woman’s club handiwork comforts cancer patients GFWC Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club members, under the direction of Home Life chair Ciel Birkett, recently delivered a large supply of handmade pillows for use by breast cancer patients for their special needs. The women also presented a hand-painted commemorative ceiling tile to be added to the residence’s ‘supporters’ ceiling collection. Those participating are, from left, Marcy Edmonson, Helen Fornino, Gloria Dale and Marilyn Wannamaker (seated), Jo Anne Mason, Lea Griffin, Karen Molis and Donna Losch.Plan to expand sales tax holiday gets support, criticismpermanent refundable low-income sales tax credit or earned income tax credit to offset the impact of the sales tax on lowand moderate-income taxpayers.” Florida TaxWatch supports the expansion of the sales tax holiday, but wants it to serve as a springboard for overall budget cuts to the tune of $1 billion. “With increased adoption of cost savings in Florida’s budget, lawmakers could further extend the sales tax holiday, or even reduce the state’s overall sales tax rate,” said Dominic Calabro, president and chief executive of Florida TaxWatch, in a release. Florida’s tax holiday began in 1998 as a seven-day event, according to the retail federation, and expanded to nine days in 1999, which continued through 2007, with a twoyear break in 2001. When the holiday returned in 2010, it was reduced to three days, and has continued that way through 2013.

ALL-NEW 2014 SHOW with live orchestra By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe Lutz Volunteer Fire Department disbanded at the beginning of 2013, but its contributions to the community will live on through a new endowed scholarship fund to benefit Lutz students. The fire department was forced to disband on Jan. 1, 2013, after the Hillsborough County Commission decided to replace the countys six remaining volunteer firehouses with professional firefighters. Since then, the board of the Lutz Volunteer Fire Association Inc., has liquidated the volunteer fire departments assets and has established a scholarship fund for Lutz students. The endowment fund was established with $260,000, said Jay Muffly, former president of the firefighters association. The endowment will provide at least one $2,500 scholarship for a female and male student who is attending or will enter an accredited university or college. To qualify for a scholarship, the student must live in Lutz. The firefighters associations board selected the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comKristen Ingle is looking forward to Shen Yun 2014 because she had such a great time attending the show at Mahaffey Theater with her daughter last year. Ingles adopted daughter, Macy, was born in China. Ingle believes Shen Yun provides her 9year-old a chance to become more familiar with the culture of her birthplace. Its definitely worth seeing, said Ingle of South Tampa, who is bringing along her mother and some friends who have also adopted two daughters from China. I like that it tells the stories of the history of China, all of the folklore. And the music I really liked that they had both Western and Chinese instruments. She thinks its great entertainment for people of any age. The children like it because its so visual, Ingle said. In fact, Macy said her favorite parts were the costumes and the dancers who performed with teacups on their heads. Its a story told through dance and music, Ingle said. The story really comes through. Shirley Hu, a volunteer coordinator for Shen Yun, said she first saw the show while living in New York. I fell in love with it because its about the revival of the traditional Chinese culture, which I truly believe in, said Hu, a native of Taiwan. Traditional Chinese culture is about moral values and ethics. Shen Yun, which translates into the beauty of heavenly beings dancing, is based in New York. It has three touring companies of about 100 members each, which travel through the United States, Asia and Europe. Hu is handling the logistics for the upcoming Shen Yun 2014 performances Feb. 5 through Feb. 8, at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. The two-and-a-half-hour show, which includes a 15-minute intermission, features about 20 pieces, including dancers accompanied by orchestral music and vocal performances.

So who does Central Pasco Veterinary Care have? They have Vern Richardson. I love animals. Im a dog lover. Ive had them for years, he said. But Richardsons pug, Thor, isnt the only animal that benefits from his fondness for pets. And now hes being recognized for it. Richardson, who actually plays Santa Claus at Central Pasco Veterinary Cares fundraisers, won the 2013 Pasco Hernando Veterinary Medical Association Dalmatian Award, given to local residents who go above and beyond with their efforts to help veterinarians in their area. Award winners are recognized as special contributors, volunteering their time for charitable causes and community service projects. In Richardsons case, he poses with his red suit (just a costume) and white beard (its real) with four-legged friends in the Pet Photos with Santa Day project. The annual event, organized by Dr. Jo Ann Daniels and her staff, raises money to purchase pet oxygen masks for local fire trucks when they provide aid to furry victims as well as humans.

But it wont be cheap as landowners in the neighborhood fork over thousands of dollars over the next 15 years to pay for the project.Thats business as usual for anyone wanting to pave any of the more than 500 miles of dirt road in the county, said Michael Garrett, director of the countys Public Works Department. Many of those roads were part of subdivisions, or are used only by those living in those neighborhoods. But others are part of what are described as rural neighborhoods, where dirt roads have been grandfathered into the countys overall street plans. The problem is that when you have very large lots, the road becomes very expensive to build, Garrett said. There is not a lot of interest in getting them done. All but about 20 miles of the dirt roads are located in the central and eastern parts of the county, Garrett said. Neighborhood residents come to the county quite regularly asking for roads to be paved, but typically only one or two neighborhoods are done each year and only after landowners agree to pay a special assessment. In Pasco Lake Estates, that averages out to about $7,600 for each lot. If that cost is spread out over 15 years, the county will add interest of about $2,100. Thats along the lines of what Bonnie Rupe and her neighbors were told a couple years back when they asked the county to pave their Zephyrhills neighborhood. Rupe and her family moved to Miller Avenue a decade ago from Wesley Chapel, and expected the dirt roads just outside of city limits would be paved in just a couple years. We have three vehicles, and were constantly washing our cars because of the dust that flies up from the road, Rupe said. There are a lot of people on our street here with asthma problems, and other health conditions, and Im convinced its because of the dirt road. Several streets in Rupes neighborhood are dirt, including 20th Street, which borders to the north. But unlike Pasco Lake Estates, none of the roads are part of a subdivision. And many of Rupes neighbors would be hard-pressed to call the area rural, as its literally blocks from the strip malls of County Road 54, and a short jaunt from Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. A vote to pave the roads throughout that particular area, where there are at least 60 lots lining less than 1.5 miles of road, failed. Not because people didnt want paved roads, but because the $6,000 price tag to pave was just too high. Theres no way I could afford that right now, Rupe said. I dont think a lot of us here can afford that. The problem, Garrett said, is theres just no money to do it. The county is working on ways to fund current road maintenance and construction needs, and even with an expanded gas tax in coming years, that could still prove to be tricky. Instead, costs for those wanting to convert to paved roads are passed on to the owners of lots lining those roads. A dozen owners in Pasco Lake Estates will shoulder a third of the overall cost. One owner, Ollie Williams, would be responsible for $38,620, plus an additional $11,500 in interest if he pays over 15 years. Habitat for Humanity, which maintains four lots in the neighborhood designed to give people an interest-free shot at owning a home, will be on the hook for just under $27,000, along with $8,000 in interest. I feel that its not fair that they have to charge us, Rupe said. They are paving streets in the county all the time, and we pay taxes to the county. We should have paved roads as well. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFFOffi c i als e s t i mate that there are s ome 500 mi les of unpaved roads i n Pas co County, and the only way to pave them is to charge a s peci al asse ssment to thos e who li ve on them.The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportThe Early Learning Coalition of Pasco and Hernando Counties is scheduling appointments for families in both counties looking to get childcare assistance while they seek or maintain employment. Right now, there is no waiting list for School Readiness services, or subsidized childcare, according to a release. Last year, the waiting list reached 1,800 children looking for services. School Readiness funds pay a portion of a childcare costs for lowto moderate-income families so they may seek and maintain employment to support their families or attend school. Eligibility is determined by comparing federal poverty guidelines to both family size and income. Families may earn no more than 150 percent of the federal poverty level upon initial eligibility.

B y Di ane KortusPublisherJust about every conversation Ive had this past week with family, friends or customers quickly gravitated to reports of the shooting at Cobb Theatres/Grove 16 & CineBistro in Wesley Chapel. And I bet it was the same with you. Most of us here in Pasco and north Hillsborough go to movies at The Grove and can easily visualize the setting. We know the layout theaters one through eight are to the left, and nine through 16 are to the right. Weve eaten popcorn from the same popper that made the snack that is said to have escalated an encounter between two patrons into the deadly scene. And if youre like me, the thought crossed your mind that you could have been in the theater when it happened. You too may have been bothered at one time or another by someone close by using their cell phone in blatant disregard for the rules and for others. Theres little I can add to the discussion of what happened and why, and how this tragedy could have been prevented if only some common sense had prevailed. We all feel horrible that this shooting happened in our community, and because it did, it feels personal and haunting. You may have noticed that we do not write about the shooting anywhere else in this weeks paper. And you may wonder why that is. How could your local weekly newspaper ignore such a huge news event that has received national and international coverage? Heres why. It is not our role to regurgitate news that already has been covered 24/7 by every news organization out there. Within 48 hours of the shooting, you had all the reporting and analysis youd ever want or need. Sometimes we do write about state or national news originating in our circulation area if we can localize the story with information specific for our readers. An example is our story about the $590 million Powerball ticket that was sold to an elderly Zephyrhills resident last May. Before the winner came forward, B.C. Manion wrote about problems that often arise from such instantaneous wealth, interviewing a local psychologist, financial planner and attorney. This story worked in our format because B.C. talked to experts who also are our neighbors. And because winning the lottery is a fantasy we all share, B.C.s story gave us helpful suggestions we could all dream about using someday. My staff and I talked about to how best to cover the Wesley Chapel shooting in todays paper, a week and a half after it happened. And we decided there really was no local angle that was not already covered by Tampas many news outlets in print, broadcast, cable and digital. In fact, we thought some of the stories pursued seemed forced, and we questioned their validity and the amount of attention they received. So instead of a story, we thought this column was the best way to acknowledge the shooting and to let you know why it is not on our front page this week. Why we didnt cover the Cobb shooting PUBLISHERS COLUMN Dale Mabry Shell station soldB y Michael Hi n m anmhinman@cnewspubs.comA gas station near the busy intersection of North Dale Mabry Highway and Van Dyke Road was sold last month, saving it from foreclosure.AJA Properties of Clearwater LLC bought the Shell gas station located at 17803 N. Dale Mabry Highway on Dec. 23 for $1.5 million, according to Hillsborough County property records. The station was built in 1999, and is a little more than 3,000 square feet, including a car wash.The station was previously owned by Jennifer & Mary Kaye Inc., which had purchased the location in 2002 for $2.2 million. Mills 2011 LLC, which held the mortgage on the property, began foreclosure proceedings last September, according to records. The sale was secured after Risser Oil, a Clearwater gasoline distributor, released its rights of first refusal to buy the gas station. The new owner is associated with Adams Tank & Lift, a construction and installation company in Clearwater. The two companies Adams Tank and AJA Properties share the same principal, Andrew J. Adams, as well as its primary address, according to state corporation records.

Visitors to the Armed Forces History Museum will get the sense that they are stepping into scenes from war. Smoke drifts through a dim room, soldiers aim their guns at the enemy, and the rat-a-tat-tat sounds of gunfire fill the air in the museums World War I bunker. Exhibit cases in the room contain personal items that soldiers carried with them. They include foot powder, a razor, prayer books, a sewing kit and binoculars. These items of daily living convey a sense of the human side of war. The museum in a squat warehouse a bit off the beaten track contains a treasure trove of war artifacts and military memorabilia. Not only can visitors see what soldiers carried, but they also can see what military personnel wore, the weapons they used and the vehicles they rode in or drove. More than 100,000 items are on display at the largest nongovernment funded museum of its kind in the state, said Cindy Bosselmann, the museums director of marketing and events. Even before visitors step inside the 35,000-square-foot building at 2050 34th Way N., in Largo, theyll see military vehicles in the parking lot, including a helicopter and a Russian MiG jet. About 90 percent of the items on exhibit were donated by retired businessman John J. Piazza Sr., who began amassing his vast collection more than a half-century ago. Piazza was 17 when he got his first military item a World War I German mortar grenade given to him by his girlfriend. Over the years, he continued collecting items, and he created a mobile museum that he drove around to the independent living centers, assisted living facilities and nursing homes that he owned. He used his traveling museum as a marketing tool, offering people a chance to see his collection and to entice potential customers to find out more about the facilities he owned. After he retired, Piazza decided to create a nonprofit museum so that younger generations could learn about military conflicts, and to honor the men and women who have served in the armed forces. As patrons stroll through the military history center, they can hear the sounds of war and can listen to oral histories recorded by military personnel who witnessed such pivotal events as the raising of the flag on Iwo Jimas Mt. Suribachi, and the D-Day landing of U.S. forces on Utah Beach. It took Piazza and a team he hired about 18 months to create the exhibits that the now 75-year-old designed. The idea was to give visitors enough information to explain the exhibit, but not so much that it overwhelms them, said Piazza, who visited museums and looked through books before designing the exhibits. I wanted people to come in and have a wow effect, Piazza said. The museum includes displays featuring artifacts from World War 1, World War II, the Korean War, the Cold War, the Vietnam War, Operation Desert Storm and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. In one room, visitors will get a chance to learn more about the Japanese attack on U.S. Naval forces in Pearl Harbor. Theyll see model warships from the 1970 movie Tora! Tora! Tora! and can view black-and-white film footage of actual attacks. They can also see a chair that once was in the office of Adm. Yamamoto Isoroku, who masterminded Japans Pearl Harbor attacks. In another room, devoted to exhibits for the U.S. Navy, visitors can peer through a periscope to get a view of the museums parking lot. Patrons also can listen to the story of Capt. Leonard Schroeder, the first to step foot on Utah Beach during the invasion. Some of Schroeders personal artifacts are on display in a glass case, including a pair of boots from that historic day. As visitors step into another room, theyll see a French village scene, complete with a soldier dangling from a parachute caught on a church spire. The scene portrays a partial replica of the church Sainte-Mere-Eglise in the Cotentin Peninsula near the coast of Normandy, France. Germans had occupied the town for four years until U.S. forces arrived on June 6, 1944, in Operation Boston, giving the town a claim of being one of the first liberated in the invasion. The paratrooper depicted in the museum was Pvt. John M. Steele, who was taken prisoner by the Germans, but later rescued. Theres still an effigy (of Steele) hanging there (on the church), in real life, Piazza said, to serve as a reminder of what happened. Another scene in the museum sets the scene for the heroic actions of 1st Lt. Baldomero Lopez as he scales a wall. After topping the wall, he smothered a grenade to prevent it from killing the troops that were with him. Lopez, a graduate of Hillsborough High School, was posthumously awarded the Medal of Honor, and a state veterans nursing home in Land O Lakes bears the name of the war hero. Another highlight in the museum is a tribute to prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action. Theres also a recreation of Rosies bar, made famous by the television series, M.A.S.H. Other notable items on display include a uniform worn by Saddam Hussein and a playing card depicting him as the ace of spades from a deck of Iraqi war criminal recognition cards. In the Salute to Services room, which is the first one visitors see coming in, there are crisp uniforms on display in clear cases. They represent every branch of the U.S. military, dating back to the Civil War.Other rooms show off the museums collection of arms, grenades and land mines, and throughout the museum there are vehicles, which are fully operational. That collection includes jeeps, tanks, a 1942 Harley-Davidson motorcycle and an amphibious vehicle that can operate on land or water.Other items of interest include an exhibit honoring the contribution of the Tuskegee Airmen and a wall of heroes, which features shadow boxes containing personal items, such as letters, photographs, post cards and dog tags. Piazza, who is a former U.S. Marine, is at the museum nearly every day. He said its gratifying to see the war veterans when they tour through the museum. They often react when they see an item they would have used in the field. Emotionally, it puts them back in the trenches, Piazza said. He also enjoys visits from school groups. What continues to amaze me is the interest of these young kids fourth-, fifthand sixth-graders, Piazza said. They are really, really interested. They ask really good questions.

When Chinese and Western music come together, they produce what Hu describes as a glorious sound. Orchestral music plays as dancers glide gracefully across the stage, using the movement of their body, as well as facial expressions, to tell stories. The dances incorporate high-flying leaps, spins and acrobatic moves, but are much more than sheer technique, according to interviews by principal dancers on YouTube videos. Shen Yun performers seek to convey a spiritual connection behind each dance movement and musical note, they said. They seek to express of joy, sorrow, delight, grief, anger, illness and majesty by immersing themselves into the mindset and emotions of the characters they portray. You can actually see the facial expressions, Hu said. I always feel what makes the show so successful is because of the spirituality behind it. The pieces move from one story to another, sharing Chinese folklore and legends, as well as true stories. The dancers wear handmade costumes, representing everything from the Tang Dynastys Raiment of Rainbows and feathers to imperial dragon robes, coronets and cloud caps. They wear colorful flowing robes, as well as the attire of the Manchurian Tibet, Dai, Mongol and Uyghur ethnic groups. More than 400 costumes are used in a single show, Hu said. The show also uses a 3-D backdrop to help bring stories to life. Performers tour for half of the year then return to New York to prepare for the next years tour. It takes thousands of hours to hone their technique and learn the choreography. Each year, they tour with an entirely new show. Every year, I look forward to different stories, Hu said. A lot of the stories are the stories I was taught by my mom. Request your Appointment Online: www.FloridaMedicalClinic.com Tomas Figueroa-Nieves, MDJoin us inWELCOMING16646 N.

Members of the club said they were delighted by the fire associations decision to allow them to select the scholarship recipients. We feel that were being honored by the volunteer fire department, said Kay Taylor, the new president for the womans club. The agreement specifies that at least two scholarships of at least $2,500 be awarded each year, while funds are available, said Gordon T. Brown, a former fire association board member, who drew up the agreement with the womans club. But the agreement also allows flexibility to award more scholarships and to increase the amount of the scholarship. At a rate of two scholarships a year, at $2,500 each, the endowment fund would last more than a half-century, even without earning any interest. Obviously, it could last much longer, depending upon the prevailing interest rates and if the fund continues to attract contributions, Muffly said. The firefighters association couldnt think of a better way to give back to the community and to honor the men and women who devoted thousands of hours to the firefighters association, Muffly said. The volunteer department responded to house fires, car crashes and emergency medical calls, Brown said. We existed before there was a Hillsborough County fire department, Brown said. We raised our own money. We bought our own engines. Our community supported us for 61 years. So, when they liquidated the associations board considered this question: Whats the best way to give back to the community?The size of the endowment fund means that the legacy of the volunteer firefighters will live on, Brown said. This thing could go on for generations, he said, adding he cant think of a better cause to support than scholarships. A nations greatest asset is its children. Before establishing the endowment, the firefighters association awarded two $2,500 scholarships last year to Mary Canton and Dylan Waddle. COURTESY OF PATRICIA SERIOThe Lutz Firemans Scholarship Fund will provide annual scholarships to benefit Lutz students. Shown here at a ceremony celebrating the new fund are, from left, Ben Fisher, Jay Muffly and Gordon T. Brown, of the volunteer fire associations board; and Barbara Nicholson, Kay Taylor and Rosie Heim, of the GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club. LEGACY, from page 1 helper for the past four years has finally been recognized for his work. Were very fortunate to have such a wonderful person who volunteers his time, and who has the same philosophy as ours trying to give back to the community, supporting veterinarians and supporting veterinary medicine, Daniels said. This past year, the photos enabled Daniels to provide five sets of masks for fire trucks. Each set of oxygen masks has three different sizes, allowing fire rescue personnel to help a variety of pets when the need arises. Daniels also provides training on how to use them.And the masks are used. Just a few months ago, first responders were able to resuscitate a cat thanks to the special equipment. These pet oxygen masks have already saved lives in the community, and (Richardson) has been a big part of that, she said.Helping save the lives of beloved pets might be a new experience for Richardson, but posing for photos as Santa Claus is a familiar one. He used to work in malls in South Florida before settling in Land O Lakes. Having pets on his lap is different than posing with humans, and he prefers his current job to his old one. I think dogs are easier to handle than children, he said with a jolly laugh. While Thor lives a comfortable, carefree life in Richardsons care, he knows many animals dont enjoy those luxuries. Thats why he often donates a 50-poung bag of dog food when he goes shopping to stock up on his own supplies. Like many animal lovers, Richardson said it bothers him to hear about pets that arent being cared for properly, and it motivates him to help make sure they have an opportunity to live healthier, happier lives. Every time I see some story about an abused animal, I just cringe, he said. It just amazes me that people can do that. Whatever we can do to help out these animals, especially if theyre homeless or abandoned or sick, Im good with that. While Richardson was both appreciative and surprised when he found out he was the Dalmatian Award recipient, Daniels said hes been a rare and valuable find for a veterinarian. Hes just really special, she said. Hes just been really generous over the years in his volunteerism and his generosity toward helping animals. The orchestra combines Western classical music along with music from ancient Chinese instruments including the gong, the dizi and the erhu. The dizi is a bamboo flute, and the erhu is a two-stringed instrument, sometimes called a Chinese violin, which dates back 4,000 years.AWARD, from page 1 CULTURE, from page 1

But this weekend, history is coming to Zephyrhills. In fact, its landing at the Zephyrhills Municipal Airport Wednesday afternoon. Touching ground are three planes straight out of World War II: The B-24 Liberator, the P-51 Mustang, and the B-17 Flying Fortress. Its one thing to see a plane behind a rope collecting dust, but to be able to physically crawl through one and have a close look at all the various compartments its hard to imagine how these young men were able to do any of this to start with, said Hunter Chaney, the director of marketing for the Collings Foundation, which hosts the annual Wings of Freedom Tour. These are bare bone minimalist aircraft made to carry and drop bombs, and spread a lot of lead all over anyone trying to stop them. Crews would have to sit in these planes for hours at a time, and if you lost a glove, youre automatically facing frostbite. The tours at Zephyrhills Airport are much different than a trip to the Smithsonian. These are fully restored and operational planes, some of only the few remaining from World War II. Visitors can crawl right through the plane, sit in the cockpit, and for a little more money, actually ride on the plane. Tour tickets are $12 for adults and $6 for children (free for World War II veterans), while flights start at $450 for the B-24 or B-17, and $2,200 for the P-51. Chaney acknowledges the cost to fly is steep, but its not cheap to fly planes that were built decades ago. The B-17 itself costs about $4,500 per hour in flight, and requires about 10 hours of maintenance work for every hour its in the air.Every dollar raised goes back into the continued maintenance of the planes, all operated by the nonprofit Collings Foundation. The organization started in 1979 in Stow, Mass., with a focus on preserving history. While Collings began with antique cars, in the 1980s, it really began to focus on airplanes, and have been touring these restored planes around the country for the last 25 years.Zephyrhills will be the 2,831st stop of the tour, which usually hits more than 100 cities each year, connecting with up to 3.5 million people. It really appeals to the curiosity of people from all walks of life, Chaney said. Its such a rare opportunity to touch and experience and interact with this history, particularly when we come into areas like Zephyrhills. This is the second time the Wings of Freedom Tour has made a stop in Zephyrhills, and it might not have happened this time if it werent for airport manager Mike Handrahan, Chaney said.He has been in aviation for years now, and hes helped us bring the tour into all the various airports hes worked at, Chaney said. The B-24 coming to Zephyrhills was built in 1944 for the U.S. Army, and saw combat in the Pacific Theater with the Royal Air Force. The Liberator is the last of its kind still flying, which is surprising considering it also was the most mass-produced plane in history.The B-17, known as Nine-O-Nine, was finished too late to see actual combat, but it was subjected to the effects of three nuclear bomb detonations. Soon after it was restored in the mid-1980s, the Nine-O-Nine had an accident in western Pennsylvania. No one was killed, but the plane was not expected to fly again. It took thousands of volunteer hours and thousands of dollars in donations, but the plane was fully restored and has flown without incident now in nearly 2,400 stops. The P-51 was designed as a one-seater, but it was Collings that not only restored the plane, but added additional seating so that even passengers without a pilot license could experience the Mustang in flight. The planes will be open to the public Jan. 22 from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., Jan. 23 at 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., and Jan. 24 from 9 a.m. to noon. Flights usually take place before and after ground tour times. For more information, call (800) 5688924. We call these guys part of the Greatest Generation, Chaney said. What they did and what they endured is incredible. However awful World War II was, we would not have been able to win it without them. The Wings of Freedom Tour travels the nation as a flying tribute to the flight crews who flew the B-17s, B-24s and other aircraft. It also remembers the soldiers, sailors and airmen they helped protect. The B-17 and B-24 were the backbone of the American effort during the war from 1942 to 1945.

Through the end of the year, Moore a Wesley Chapel resident who founded CareFirst Home Care in 2004 has raised $40,715, which is four times as much as his opponent, Bob Robertson. Both are running as Republicans. Moores biggest boost came just after Thanksgiving from Tarpon Springs businessman Lew Friedland, who contributed $8,000 through various corporations. Robertson, a self-employed asset manager from Zephyrhills, loaned his campaign $3,000 right at the start. In his first few months campaigning, he raised more than $3,500 additional cash donations from outside Florida, primarily in Maryland and Pennsylvania. At the beginning of November, he picked up $1,500 more from companies controlled by Jeffrey Greenacre on Gunn Highway. Commissioner Henry Wilson, who looks to hold on to his District 4 seat, is the only candidate to have filed so far. Hes raised $5,750 through the end of December.Crooked Creek Ranch holds fundraiserRepublican candidates for the state House Danny Burgess, Shawn Harrison, Chris Latvala and Chris Sprowls will raise money through a Wild Game Dinner at Crooked Creek Ranch, 29325 Darby Road, Dade City, Jan. 31 beginning at 5 p.m. Donations will be accepted up to the state maximum of $1,000 per individual to support each campaign. Burgess, the current mayor of Zephyrhills, is facing a primary against Minerva Diaz in District 38, the seat currently held by Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel. Harrison also has a Republican primary challenger for District 63, Bret Wedding, for a seat currently held by Mark Danish, D-Tampa. Latvala has filed to run in District 67 in a seat currently held by Ed Hooper, RClearwater. Hes facing Christopher Shepard and Frederick Thomson so far in the primary. Sprowls is a candidate for District 65, in a seat currently held by Carl Zimmerman, DPalm Harbor. He is expected to face off with Debbie Faulkner in his primary. For details about the dinner, visit VoteDannyBurgess.com. Ross holds first town hallU.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, hosted his first telephone town hall meeting of 2014 on Jan. 14, with nearly 5,000 constituents participating. The call addressed a number of questions, from the countrys debt, the Affordable Care Act, immigration, the IRS, foreign aid, balancing the budget, Social Security and unemployment benefits. Anyone with a question, or who might be interested in joining a future town hall meeting, should email Ross through DennisRoss.House.gov/contact, or call his district office at (863) 644-8215. Ross so far is facing former WFTSChannel 28 investigative reporter Alan Cohn, a Democrat, for his Congressional seat in November.Bilirakis endorses Moore for commissionMike Moores run to replace Pat Mulieri on the Pasco County Commission got a boost from U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, who endorsed the Wesley Chapel businessman for the seat. Bilirakis had presented Moore with a North Tampa Chamber of Commerce leadership award in 2006, and has been following his career ever since, according to a release. Mike has the required character traits to help take Pasco County to the next level, Bilirakis said in a statement. Mike understands that small businesses are the engine that drive our economy. He knows that cutting red tape and lowering taxes is what it takes to allow businesses to thrive.Moores previous endorsements include State Sen. Wilton Simpson, Sen. John Legg, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, U.S. Rep. Will Weatherford and Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning, among others.So far, Moore is running against another Republican, Bob Robertson, for Pasco County Commission District 2. Two elections offices reopeningThe Hillsborough County Supervisor of Elections recently hosted a grand reopening of its regional offices, located at 12022 Anderson Road in Tampa, and 10439 Gibsonton Drive in Riverview. These are the same offices that were added during the 2012 election cycle, and will be open weekdays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. They join two permanent offices, one in downtown Tampa, and the other in Brandon.

The victory meant the team completed district play for the season with a perfect 16-0 record. If anything, they might have wondered how they gave up two goals. Adding those two, the team gave up just four goals in 16 district games for Class 3A-District 8. On the other side of the ledger, the Seahawks scored 101 goals in those same contests. They registered 13 shutouts, including six by the score of 8-0. While theyve dominated their district, theyre almost as good in overall play. Theyve collected a 23-1-1 record with 138 goals scored. But amazingly, that record is actually a slight drop-off from last year, when they won 30 straight games before losing in the Class 3A state semifinals to Ponte Vedra 2-1. By the numbers, it might look like the Seahawks are an offense-first team. But according to Coach Sam Koleduk, thats not really the case. Were more of a complete team, I think, he said. Right now were the leading scoring team in the country, and weve also given up the least amount of goals, also. There are a few factors that go into building the kind of success theyre having at Sunlake, Koleduk said. The team has a lot of players who also participate in local clubs, so theyre not just thinking about soccer for their school schedule. That extra work allows them to stay on top of their game so theyre ready to play at practice and during games.Their junior varsity program also is strong the team was undefeated this past season. Koleduk said it allows him to replace skilled players who graduate with talented, experienced athletes who are ready to play at the varsity level. Finally, having a good team allows them to adjust their style of play to put more pressure on their opponent. Instead of a more traditional 4-4-2 formation with four players in the back, four in the middle and two attacking up front Sunlake often plays a 3-4-3 formation, putting an extra attacker up front and forcing an opponent into a more defensive posture from the start. But that type of attack also means fewer players on defense if the opponent breaks through, so the goalkeeper has to be ready to make the necessary saves. Fortunately for the Seahawks, sophomore Danny Hrenko has been up to the task. Picking up where he left off as a freshman, Hrenko is frustrating opponents on the rare occasions they create a scoring opportunity. He said that while hes the man in front of the net, his teammates are the ones who deserve credit for shutting down opponents. The key is really my defense, to be honest, Hrenko said. Its all about organizing them. Even when there are fewer players in the back, the teams style doesnt put him in difficult situations, and the defenders are able to neutralize the opponent most of the time. But when the team has had relatively close games, Hrenko has usually helped them come out of them with a win. He said he enjoys making tough saves and proving the team is as tough defensively as it is prolific on offense. I like when I have a good shot against me and I make a good save. It makes me feel like Ive done my part on this team, he said. With many players doing their part sophomore Remi Pimm leads the nation in scoring getting a step farther than last year seems like a reasonable goal. And while Koleduk who has been with the team since the school opened back in 2007 acknowledges his Seahawks are a talented team with a lot of promise, he said there are more variables that go into a trip to the state finals and a potential championship. And not all of them are in the teams control. Weve got to stay focused, and it sounds funny, but a little bit of luck, he said. To make it all the way through without losing, you have to have a little luck on your side also, I think. Basically, you have to stay focused and healthy. COURTESY OF SAM KOLEDUKA perfect 16-0 record, and 23-1-1 overall, has the Sunlake Seahawks in position to go all the way to the top in boys soccer. And after a disappointing loss in the state semis last year, theyre ready to do just that.Sheriffs golf tourney raises $15,000 for PPALThe Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportPasco Sheriffs Charities has donated $15,000 to the Pasco Police Athletic League, based on money raised from last years golf tournament.

Rick Scott to expand the school sales tax holiday to 10 days. It would be a great boost for Floridas families and for our retailers, said Rick McAllister, president and chief executive of the Florida Retail Federation, in a release. It gives many families whose paychecks come on two-week cycles another chance to take advantage of the sales that retailers offer. Retailers typically compete with sales and markdowns to attract shoppers during the tax holiday, McAllister said, and that increases revenue for stores. Scott last week proposed to increase the holiday which typically applies to certain school supplies and electronics from the three-day event that has been used since 2010. The federation points to a study by the Washington Economics Group that said during a three-day period in 2010, overall sales jumped by $293 million, and taxable sales increased by $115 million. The study also pointed out that retailers typically tend to hire more people during the tax holiday, sometimes by as much as 20 percent. But not everyone agrees. A report last year from the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy in Washington, D.C., says such tax holidays do little to help lower income families, and hurt state budgets from the loss of revenue during that time. In 2012, for example, the three-day tax holiday cost Florida more than $28 million in lost revenue. Lawmakers must understand that they cannot resolve the unfairness of sales taxes simply by offering a short break from paying these taxes, the ITEP report said. Policymakers seeking to achieve greater tax fairness would do better to provide a COURTESY OF CIEL B IRKETTWomans club handiwork comforts cancer patientsGFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes Womans Club members, under the direction of Home Life chair Ciel Birkett, recently delivered a large supply of handmade pillows for use by breast cancer patients for their special needs.

Those participating are, from left, Marcy Edmonson, Helen Fornino, Gloria Dale and Marilyn Wannamaker (seated), Jo Anne Mason, Lea Griffin, Karen Molis and Donna Losch.Plan to expand sales tax holiday gets support, criticismpermanent refundable low-income sales tax credit or earned income tax credit to offset the impact of the sales tax on lowand moderate-income taxpayers. Florida TaxWatch supports the expansion of the sales tax holiday, but wants it to serve as a springboard for overall budget cuts to the tune of $1 billion. With increased adoption of cost savings in Floridas budget, lawmakers could further extend the sales tax holiday, or even reduce the states overall sales tax rate, said Dominic Calabro, president and chief executive of Florida TaxWatch, in a release. Floridas tax holiday began in 1998 as a seven-day event, according to the retail federation, and expanded to nine days in 1999, which continued through 2007, with a twoyear break in 2001. When the holiday returned in 2010, it was reduced to three days, and has continued that way through 2013.
