Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at the By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comThe management and employees at World of Beer and Moes Southwest Grill in Land OLakes hope that patrons spend a lot of money on Feb. 8. But its not an attempt to maximize profits. Instead, its a benefit event designed to help a local family after a horrific loss. Chad Oulson was shot and killed Jan. 13 in a dispute at the Cobb Theatres Grove 16 & CineBistro movie theater in Wesley Chapel. The story made national news and a suspect is in custody. But now his widow, Nicole, and their young daughter, Alexis, must continue without him. World of Beer and Moes, located on Collier Parkway, decided that hosting an event to raise money would be a good way to help. We want to be tied in with our community, and what better way than to help out in this tragic situation, said Amanda Edwards, general manager at World of Beer Land OLakes. While the tavern has no direct ties to the Oulson family, they were enthusiastic to host the event when contacted by her booking agent. They hope to raise at least $5,000 for the family, Edwards said. To reach that goal, World of Beer is donating $1 from every draft beer sold from 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. that evening. They also will have an auction for a gift basket containing World of Beer and other brewery items. By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comCentral Pasco County continues its bid to become the high-technology hub of the Tampa Bay region with the start of a 135,000-square-foot office center at ComPark 75. And last week, development owner Larry Morgan welcomed Gov. Rick Scott and other dignitaries for a ceremonial groundbreaking at his latest $15 million effort. There is something else much more important going on here than just the construction of these buildings, Morgan, chief executive of Morgan Family Ventures and former owner of Tires Plus, told the crowd outside of his Building C on the chilly, damp morning. The American way is for the people to have the opportunity to invest their money and time and things of that nature, and that entrepreneurial spirit certainly exists here at ComPark. The walls for Building C are already up, with the larger Building D planned to be built not far behind it on Pet Lane. Both buildings will offer more than 30 office units ranging in size from 3,030 square feet to 5,175 square feet. Three of the units in Building C have already been leased, including the Pasco County Tax Collectors office, which signed on after a Wesley Chapel location at The Grove fell through. Getting the building off the ground required more than 30 permits, but the bureaucratic red tape has not been as restrictive as it once was, Morgan said. The county has come a long way. I have been a critic of regulation my whole business life, but things are definitely getting better in Pasco, he said. The whole county organization is getting better. The construction project has employed nearly 600 people, and will create moreLocal senior ranks among states top 14By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comShe didnt move on to the nationals, but Savannah Renberg was among 14 young women from across the state vying for that chance. Renberg, a senior at Wesley Chapel High School, was one of 16 Distinguished Young Women in Florida selected to compete earlier this month in Winter Garden. Distinguished Young Women is a national scholarship program in which high school seniors from across the country compete for scholarships. The competition requires contestants to interview effectively, demonstrate physical fitness, and perform on stage. The young women first compete in local events to advance to the state competition, and then on to the national level. While 16 qualified for the state contest, it turns out only 14 including Renberg made the trip to Winter Garden. Renberg, who is a member of Suncoast Dance Theatre in Lutz and has been dancing since she was 1, showcased her dancing skills in the competition. While the 18-yearold wasnt one of the top finishers, Renberg said shes glad she took part. It was just a very unique experience, said Renberg, who is the senior class president at her school. Every day we would have rehearsal. I kept forgetting that there was a contest, that there was going to be a winner at the end because it just felt like, to me, like a performance. She also enjoyed meeting young women from across the state, and they became fast friends. There werent any cliques or anything. We all have the same desires, Renberg said. The Distinguished Young Women requires COURTESY OF OULSON FAMILYChad Oulson was killed Jan. 13 during an altercation at Cobb Theatres Grove 16 & CineBistro, leaving behind his wife, Nicole, and daughter Alexis.

Gus Bilirakis pulled hundreds of angry residents into a crowded council chambers in New Port Richey last December, he vowed to make changes at the federal level to alleviate massive flood insurance hikes. But it looks like the Palm Harbor Republicans efforts are being stopped in their tracks by his own partys Congressional leader. At least thats what the Florida delegation of Democrats in Congress are claiming in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner in Washington, D.C. That letter, signed by all eight Florida Democrats serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, urges Boehner to allow the bill to move forward on behalf the millions of families and small business owners they represent.The unreasonable flood insurance increases are particularly harmful to middle class families across Florida, the letter said, adding that 180 Congressional members from both the Democratic and Republican side of the aisle have co-sponsored the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013.Expeditious action is necessary because huge flood insurance bills are now coming due, the letter continued. We share the frustration of our neighbors that many of the changes adopted by FEMA are outside the original intent of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Unless you take up a solution now, greater economic harm will be inflicted in Florida and around the country.Since it suffered major losses from storms like Katrina and Sandy, the National Flood Insurance Program a federal insurance plan administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency have raised premiums considerably since October, when Biggert-Waters took effect. One Pasco County homeowner told Bilirakis and other government leaders in December that his insurance had grown to $2,000 a month, close to the cost of his $2,500 monthly mortgage.In a statement to The Laker/Lutz News, Bilirakis didnt address the Democratic claim that the Speaker is tabling the bill, but did say that he wasnt giving up. I have been working diligently to address the astronomical flood insurance rate increases homeowners across the country are experiencing, and I remain committed to finding a long-term solution, Bilirakis said. These rate increases will have grave financial impacts on current and future homeowners and could threaten our housing markets recovery. Bilirakis said he remains hopeful and confident that an agreement can be reached to address the flood insurance systems solvency and affordability. The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act passed Congress and was signed by President Obama in 2012. The bill phases out government subsidies for premiums in long-standing policies, but caps the annual increases at 25 percent. Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, who has been championing flood insurance reform from the county level, says shes surprised if the bill in Congress did indeed stall, but she can also understand why. It doesnt affect a lot of people in the country, and I think a lot of people dont understand it, she said. I hear it all the time. I dont want to subsidize them. They should be paying their fair share. I think people on the water would agree on that. Whats going on here, however, is that they need this program to be implemented fairly and wisely, and its just not happening. Somehow, the idea of reforming flood insurance is becoming a partisan issue, and it shouldnt be, Starkey said. Somethings gone awry, and its not a political thing, she said. They need to look at their science and their math, and help these poor people. State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, is not waiting for the federal government to take action. Hes already a co-sponsor for S.B. 542, which is set to go before an appropriations subcommittee on Feb. 6. The bill, according to Simpson, creates flexible options for policyholders to choose from so that they can reach an affordable level of coverage. The hallmark of the bill allows policyholders the option of covering either the outstanding balance of their mortgage, or the replacement cost of their property.Democrats claim flood insurance bill has stalled in WashingtonBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPasco County senior citizens who are 55 or older and have been out of work for a year or more may be able to benefit from The Experience Works Community Service Employment Program.The program is reaching out to older residents in central and eastern Pasco County who need help getting back into the work force, said Dorothy Myles, state director for Experience Works. To be eligible, applicants must have an individual income of $14,588 year or less, or $19,663 or less for a family of two.A limited number of slots are available, but there always is turnover as people land full-time jobs, move, or exit the program for other reasons, Myles said. Participants work for 21 hours a week, receiving the minimum wage of $7.93 an hour. By handling community service jobs, participants can use those new skills as a springboard to land permanent jobs. The program also helps participants pursue jobs they are interested in, Myles said. We assist them. This is participant driven, she said. The worker indicates the kind of job theyre interested in and the program seeks to help them secure it, Myles said. Some workers who begin part-time positions are hired on to handle full-time roles by the organizations that participate in the program. There also are cases when an organization isnt able to hire the employee, but can alert the worker to an opportunity elsewhere. Besides providing opportunities for workers to enhance their skills, the program also can help them in their job search and offer referrals for other services, Myles said. Some program participants were laid off and have been unable to find a job for more than a year, while others have been out of the workforce for years, she said. Some have encountered bias against older workers. Myles believes misperceptions about older workers often can be overcome when an employer is able to witness an experienced persons work ethic in action. The program is having an enrollment fair on Feb. 25 and Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Career Central, Room A, 4440 Grand Blvd., in New Port Richey.For additional information, call (888) 8591051, or visit www.ExperienceWorks.org.Program helps seniors get back to work FILE PHOTOFlood insurance reform passed in 2012 hasnt rolled out the way lawmakers had hoped, with many homeowners especially living in high-risk flood zones facing premium increases of thousands of dollars.

From that, retail trade accounted for nearly a third of the 192,900 jobs created in Florida in 2013, and topped the statewide job growth rate of 2.6 percent, according to the Florida Retail Federation. The growth of retail in Florida has fueled an increase in sales tax collections, which account for approximately $21 billion of the state budget, the group added. Overall, the greater Tampa Bay area led all Florida metropolitan areas in over-the-year job growth, according to Gov. Rick Scotts office, gaining 35,400 new jobs. Unemployment during that period also dropped from 7.9 percent in December 2012 to 5.9 percent last December.The biggest gains in the area came in trade, transportation and utilities with 9,500 jobs. Close behind was education and health services with 8,500 jobs, followed by professional and business services with 7,900 jobs.More than 5,700 construction jobs were created compared to the year before, while financial activities added 4,000 jobs. In December, Floridas 24 regional workforce boards reported more than 40,800 Floridians were placed in jobs. This represents anyone who receives employment and training assistance through a One-Stop Career Center, and finds a job within 180 days. Florida requires those receiving unemployment benefits to find assistance through a One-Stop Career Center. For the state as a whole, unemployment dipped from 6.4 percent in November to 6.2 percent in December. Florida has remained below the national unemployment rate average since last April.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE 813-454-837716202 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Tampa FL 33647 St. James United Methodist ChurchAn exceptional school for exceptional children opens in New Tampa by Mike Matthew special to The Laker / Lutz NewsMarilyn Davis, director of Esthers School in New Tampa, has openings for 30 exceptional students for the 2014/15 school year (starting in August 2014). Spaces are available to early applicants beginning in March. Esthers School specializes in children with autism, Downs syndrome, ADHD and other learning differences. Each child receives individual attention, impossible in a public school, says Marilyn. We have one teacher for every four or five students. Our goal is to bring every child up to their full potential. Some of Esthers graduates have gone on to junior college. After receiving a number of requests for a school in the Tampa area, we found a wonderful location with the Saint James United Methodist Church, says Marilyn. St. James has a strong special needs ministry serving children and adults. Esthers School is a Bible-based; Christian special needs school with a full curriculum covering all subject areas from kindergarten through 12th grade. Each child is tested for proper placement within the curriculum, says Marilyn. Every child works at their own pace. We work closely with each child to help them grow up to lead successful, independent lives. Esther Berry founded Esthers School in February 2005. With little more than an unction and great concern for the education of differently abled children, Esthers School was launched as a private coed Judeo-Christian School in St. Petersburg, Florida. In desperation to achieve better services for her own son diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Esther Berry took on the journey and formulated a place where others could join her in gaining exceptional curriculum development, counseling and tutoring for their child struggling to cope with classes in traditional educational institutions. Esthers son is now 22 and living independently as a fully functional adult with a job. With modest beginnings, servicing only two students the first year, Esthers School currently serves 90 students in four locations. St. James in New Tampa, starting Monday, February 3rd, will be the fifth location. Esthers husband, Chris Berry, is traveling to Panama in February to oversee the opening of their sixth school. The pastor of a church in Panama sought out Esther to help him set up a special needs school. Marilyn has worked with Esthers school for eight years. Weve had children come into our school that wouldnt come out from under their desk, says Marilyn. Within the first year, theyve moved into active participation with the rest of the class. It truly is an exceptional school. Tuition has not been raised in seven years. The majority of the tuition is normally covered by the McKay scholarship program or the Florida Step-up program for lower income families. Esthers School also offers a few scholarships to help parents with costs not covered by other programs on a first come, first serve basis. Esther is committed to helping all children to learn and grow into healthy happy adults. A few years ago, Esther was instrumental in setting up three schools in Africa for AIDS orphans. Esthers New Tampa school is located at St. James United Methodist Church, 16202 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. You can call Marilyn Davis directly at (813) 454-8377 for an application or further information. The main campus is located at the New Beginnings Nazarene Church in Pinellas Park. Currently, only the main campus offers a summer school program. Additional schools are located at the Aldersgate United Methodist Church in Seminole, 5418 Madison Street, New Port Richey, and the Christian Retreat in Bradenton.

www.LakerLutzNews.com February 5, 201411 By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPlanning is underway for Pasco County Schools second youth summit aimed at reducing violence and creating more inclusive schools throughout the district. The Together We Stand Youth and Community Summit 2014 will be on June 10 at River Ridge Center for the Performing Arts at River Ridge High School. The first planning session for this years event was on Jan. 21. This years theme is building safer, more inclusive schools and communities, and reducing violence, according to school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe.Speakers and guests have not yet been fully determined, but the event will include Roy Kaplan, last years keynote speaker, and Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning. The daylong seminar will include a keynote address, breakout sessions, networking, lunch and a panel discussion.An online application will be available soon for speakers and exhibitors. Online registration for the free event will start in April. The summit is one of the tangible ways that Browning is trying to promote an increased culture of caring and respect in the countys public schools. The lack of civility and lack of respect are issues that Browning has frequently discussed. He wrote about those concerns in an op-ed piece published last December in The Laker/Lutz News after the violent death of a 16-year-old. Another teenager was charged with the crime. When that op-ed was penned, I think it had a sense of frustration, desperation, in it, Browning said. I know it will take deliberate and tough conversations within families and communities to help kids learn how to deal with conflict and cope with adversity appropriately. We must work together, the superintendent wrote in the piece. His words struck a chord with readers. I did get a number of emails, as well as people stopping me out in the community, when Ive walked through schools, teachers have stopped me, administrators, Browning said. They agree. Weve lost civility. Weve lost respect. We have become, in my opinion, a society of entitlement with no accountability, no responsibility. There are no easy answers, Browning said. This is like nailing Jell-O to a tree, Browning said. Its such a pervasive, complex issue. It is a societal issue. It is a cultural issue. And yet, the school district is expected to fix it. Technology adds to the challenge. Technology is both a blessing and a curse. Its a blessing because of the things that we can do with kids today in the classroom are incredible, Browning said. Its a curse because we have technological advances in our school being used inappropriately. Photos taken with smart phones often end up in cyberspace. And once the images are circulating, theyre out there forever, Browning said. Cyberbullying is an issue, too. The district also must deal with electronic posts in which students threaten to harm others or themselves, Browning said. A student making a flippant remark can set off a whole chain reaction of activity. Weve got to notify district staff, weve got to notify law enforcement, we reach out to moms and dads, he said. So how does this all get back to the culture of caring and respect? It starts at home. It starts at home, Browning said. These kids are sponges. They watch moms and dads. They watch neighborhood kids. They watch other adults. And these kids are going to model what they see. For his part, the superintendent sets a tone of high expectation for the districts staff. When it comes to influencing student behavior on campus, Browning believes that students are key to elevating the standard of behavior among their peers. This year, Browning wants middle school students to be involved in planning the youth summit. Behavior problems begin to develop when children are young, so the district needs to address them and involve students at younger ages in helping to find solutions. In addition to supporting the youth summit, Browning encourages student initiatives aimed at building respect at schools throughout the district, and he wants district administrators to support the youth-led efforts. Browning believes that, essentially, people have the same needs and desires. When you take our skin color off of us, we all look the same, he said. Our emotions are the same. We express them differently. Our desires are the same. We want to be successful. We want to be loved. We want to be cared for. We want to be respected. Even the hardest of hard kids want to be cared for, loved and respected. Im convinced of that, Browning said. We need to be respectful. We need to be civil. We need to be caring. Browning welcomes suggestion and help from the community. Those who would like to help or have ideas can email him at ksbsos@pasco.k12.fl.us.Pasco superintendent pushes for culture of caring in Pasco FILE PHOTOStudents gathered last year at the Pasco County school systems first youth summit to talk about ways to take aim at problems of bullying and create a culture of caring in schools and offices around the district.

its participants to be academically focused. For her part, Renberg has a 3.9 unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale, and a 4.4 weighted GPA when college-level coursework is considered. Renberg became aware of the program through a friend and decided to give it a shot. While she knows she eventually wants to be a college professor teaching literature classes, shes not sure what college shell attend. So far, shes been accepted to the University of North Florida and Winthrop University in South Carolina. Im waiting for my acceptance to Troy University, Renberg said about the college in Alabama. She wants to go there because it has a dance program, and shed like to minor in dance.Renberg credits her mom, Sharon Renberg a first-grade teacher at Chester Taylor Elementary School outside of Zephyrhills for helping to develop a love for teaching and learning. After volunteering in her moms class, Renberg said she thinks she would be suited for teaching older students.Shes attracted to the university level because that would enable her to teach and to continue pursuing her love for learning at the same time. The Winter Garden contest was friendly, Renberg said, and when it was over, the competitors planned to stay in touch. We all were swapping numbers and Instagrams and Twitters, she said. Theyve even talked of going on a road trip together to cheer on the young women who will represent Florida at the 57th Annual Distinguished Young Women National Finals this summer in Mobile, Ala. The young women there will compete for more than $130,000 in cash scholarships.Renberg hopes the Florida contestants make the trip to Mobile. I think it would be fun, Renberg said.www.LakerLutzNews.com February 5, 201412 In addition, there will be a raffle in which half the money will go to the winner and the other half to the Oulson family. Moes Southwest Grill also is contributing to the event by pledging 25 percent of its sales for the entire day. I grew up in Lutz (and) Land OLakes my whole life. Its such a small, tight-knit community. Its all about family out here, said Ryan Campbell, general manager of Moes. Weve always stuck together, so why not stick together in a time of hurt? Campbell is the son of Guy Campbell, who owns both businesses involved in the event. The benefit falls on a busy night for Moes, which should lead to a larger donation for the family, Campbell said. But his young employees also have helped get the word out to make sure the evening is as busy as possible. Theyve all been passing out flyers at school, trying to get people on board and trying to get people in so we can raise as much money as possible, Campbell said. While helping out is important to Edwards, as a member of the community it also hits close to home in other ways. Oulson left behind a daughter just shy of her second birthday. Edwards, a mother of two girls herself, delivered a son just last week. She said that the familys loss made an impression on her, and it became important to help from a personal standpoint. Being a mother, I couldnt imagine being left without a husband, and I know the monetary burden of a death in the family, she said.

VICTIM, from page 1 SENIOR, from page 1 than 250 jobs once the units start filling up. Many of those jobs, Morgan said, would be high-waged. And that could give a local boost to Scott, who is facing a tough re-election this year potentially against his predecessor, Charlie Crist, and working to raise what has been consistently low approval ratings. We all care about what happens to you, Scott said. We want jobs. The most important thing we can do is create an environment that will get to work. Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz, says he can only see growth in Wesley Chapels future thanks to projects like ComPark. Wesley Chapel is the hotbed of economic opportunities in the state of Florida, he said, adding that government can help developers by getting out of the way. Its an honor to get out of your way and let you do your job, Legg said. ComPark 75 is 60 acres of developable land just off Wesley Chapel Boulevard to the west of Tampa North Aero Park. Only three units remain available in the first phase of ComParks construction of two nearby buildings that total a little more than 100,000 square feet. Morgan also hopes to build a four-story office building on the eastern side of the property fronting Interstate 75.New State Rep. Amanda Murphy, who succeeded Mike Fasano in the Florida Legislature, was the only Democratic lawmaker on hand at the ceremony. She said the ComPark project would help the entire county, although she did wish it was in her district. I am a little jealous because the other side of the county doesnt get something as wonderful and beautiful as this, said Murphy, who is based in New Port Richey. But it benefits all of Pasco County, and thats what its all about.JOBS, from page 1 The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportHillsborough County is helping residents pay their electric bill through its Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

Guarnieri spoke about national security post-Sept. 11, 2001.

They are from people like Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning, and two mayors Tim Newlon of San Antonio, and Danny Burgess of Zephyrhills.Littlefield entered the race Jan. 16, and has yet to file campaign finance reports. Moore, however, is leading the money pack with just under $41,000 raised. The third Republican in the race, Bob Robertson, has raised a little more than $10,000 since announcing his candidacy last summer.

Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, officially announced the start of his re-election campaign on Jan. 21 at events in Lakeland and Plant City. Ross, currently in his second term, is a conservative Republican with a platform to lower taxes, protect individual freedoms, and reduce government mandates. It has been an honor and a privilege to work on behalf of the good people of Polk and Hillsborough (counties) these past three years in Congress, Ross said in a release. I care deeply about our community, and I have been tirelessly fighting for families across the 15th District to ensure that they can keep more of their hard-earned money and maintain their freedoms. I will continue to do all that I can to promote job growth and certainty for the future. Ross has already raised more than $380,000, and so far would face former television journalist Alan Cohn in the general election if no one else files to run.Littlefield wont seek endorsementsFormer State Rep. Ken Littlefield knows his main primary opponent in the Pasco County Commission race has some major endorsements from other local leaders, but he isnt looking for any himself.I will be asking you for your vote because you like me, and because Ive been able to explain to you my experience, Littlefield told the Republican Club of Central Pasco last week.

The cheerleaders took the FHSAA crown during the competition in Kissimmee, where they were the only school representing Pasco County. The girls are very excited, as well as myself, Sunlake head coach Pennye Garcia said in a release. They have been trained to know that we need to focus on the task at hand. Between the semifinal and final competition, I made a couple of changes to better our score, and it proved to be in our favor.The first FHSAA state championship for the team had to come with some waiting. The cheerleaders earned first place during competition Jan. 30, but one team competing got held up by weather, and didnt make it there until Friday, Garcia said. Everyone had to wait until the next day, to give that team a chance to compete.However, late Friday, Garcia got the email that Sunlake had won it all. The cheerleaders will receive their trophy and medals during a planned pep rally at Sunlake Feb. 14. To see highlights of the winning routine from Sunlake, visit Bright House Sports Networks at tinyurl.com/SunlakeCheer.Pascos new cheerleading state champion is Sunlake By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comLiberty Middle Schools track team began the season with a coach who wasnt just new to the school, she was new to coaching. And she wasnt going to hide her enthusiasm when it came to supporting her team.If you had seen me at the track meet, I was the one in the middle of the field screaming her head off, Toni Kuzmicki said. Kuzmickis enthusiasm paid off for the school, which excelled at their cluster track meet, where athletes from different schools compete in eight events: shot put, long jump, 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400meter open, 800-meter run, 4-x-100 meter relay and 4-x-200 meter relay. Only the top two in each category move on to the county championships, where the top finishers in cluster track meets from across the county compete for spots in the finals. Liberty not only sent 17 athletes to the county championships, but was represented in the finals in the long jump, 100-meter dash, 800-meter run and the 4-x-100 meter relay. While Kuzmicki was learning the ropes when it came to coaching, she already had plenty of experience with track events. She was a district champion four years in a row at her high school in Miami, participating in the one-mile and two-mile competitions. She also ran track in college at Nova Southeastern University, and was able to use that background to educate and motivate her team to excel. The athletes responded to Kuzmickis coaching style. She worked with the sprinters and she was able to really give them good advice, runner Alejandro Michel said of his coach. We were able to take a lot more kids to county than last year. He went on to reach the finals and placed seventh in the 800-meter run. Michel also ran track in the sixth and seventh grades, but said that the athletes now have an especially good attitude and relationship with the coaching staff. Charisma Henry, an eighth-grader who was part of the group that went to the finals, agrees that Kuzmicki and her coaches made a big difference. The way they coached, it was cool because we raced against each other and they timed us, she said. And we kept on doing that, trying to get better times. And we also conditioned before and after practice. Henry believes that the practices set the tone for the team to take things more seriously, and produced better times as a result. In Henrys case, this years trip to the finals was her first. She also said that even though they raced against each other in practice, the team had strong camaraderie during the races. When she was running, she could hear people cheering and rooting for them. You could hear Liberty from miles away. It was really great, she said. Kuzmicki is proud of her teams accomplishments and praised her coaching staff Jessica Macrae, Stephanie Padilla and Katie Smith noting that they were all first-time coaches. But shes also started thinking about how to build on this years success. A number of her top performers were sixth-graders, meaning they still have a couple of years to grow and succeed on the team. Kuzmicki told them to build on the success they achieved. Shes also looking forward to growing as a coach, and improving the regimen she planned for her athletes. Conditioning is already one area designated to become a priority next year. We kind of just took their natural ability and ran with that, but next year well know to get that muscle memory formed at the beginning, and then push them as we go, Kuzmicki said.

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. How often should I have my teeth cleaned and checked by my dentist?On average seeing a dentist twice a year is recommended for most of us. People with a high risk of dental disease might need to be seen more frequently (every 3-4 months). This risk group includes: Smokers Diabetics People with a current history of gum or periodontal disease People with a weak immune response to bacterial infections People who tend to get more cavities or buildup of plaque on their teeth than the average personQ A Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike MatthewSpecial to The Laker / Lutz NewsEd Klaameyer, a licensed agent for US Health Advisors, strives to help people successfully navigate the health care jungle. Health care is on everyones mind, says Ed. Its always a topic of conversation at the BNI (business) networking group I belong to in New Tampa. Its very confusing with all the changes taking place, says Ed. People are trying to figure out who and what to believe. There is so much conflicting information being presented by the media. Eds role is to help people understand the health care marketplace and make the best choices for both the shortterm and long-term. His goal is to provide his clients with a comprehensive health care plan that effectively meets their needs without breaking their budget. He was an international sales manager for 15 years with DHL when the package delivery industry was starting up. Our culture was changed forever through the impact companies like DHL, Federal Express and UPS had on us, says Ed. It changed the way businesses operate and what customers expect from them.Were now seeing the same longterm cultural effects taking place with health care, says Ed. Everyone, regardless of their age, whether they work for a big company, small company or are self-employed, are being affected by these changes.Eds primary focus is on small businesses with less than 10 employees, sole proprietors and families. I owned a small business for 15 years, so I understand what business owners and their families go through as theyre making health care decisions, says Ed. Their biggest cost is payroll with health care coming in second and rising fast.Our motto is HOPE: helping other people everyday, says Ed. The first thing I look at is what they feel their needs are. Then we look at networks, doctors, hospitals, prescriptions and premiums. These are the key items for building a comprehensive health care plan.US Health Advisors represents US Health Group. Insurance is underwritten by Freedom Life Insurance Company of America. Were the only insurance company that offers a premium rate lock in, say Ed. This means your premiums wont increase for up to three years.Solutions provided by US Health Advisors are not offthe-shelf plans. The three key areas that Ed looks at are sickness, accident and wellness (prevention). This enables the client to focus on the areas of greatest concern and create a health plan that meets their specific needs. The ability to customize the plan is a real blessing, say Ed. This allows me to help business owners set up a plan that takes care of their unique requirements. Ed has also been able to help companies supplement their existing health care plan.

The women are building the home as part of Habitats Women Build program. The house will add to the more than 2,000 Habitat homes built by women throughout the United States and in dozens of countries around the world. Women can make a difference in their communities by building homes and raising awareness of local housing needs, said Stephanie Black, director of development and public relations for Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County, in a release. Women Build doesnt exclude men. It includes and empowers women. This is the sixth Women Build project taken on by a local Habitat group.

The local Habitat, founded in 1994, has built or rehabilitated more than 120 homes in the eastern and central parts of Pasco County.Construction on the home begins Feb. 7 at 15074 Gainesville Road in Spring Hill.

Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at the By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comThe management and employees at World of Beer and Moe’s Southwest Grill in Land O’Lakes hope that patrons spend a lot of money on Feb. 8. But it’s not an attempt to maximize profits. Instead, it’s a benefit event designed to help a local family after a horrific loss. Chad Oulson was shot and killed Jan. 13 in a dispute at the Cobb Theatres Grove 16 & CineBistro movie theater in Wesley Chapel. The story made national news and a suspect is in custody. But now his widow, Nicole, and their young daughter, Alexis, must continue without him. World of Beer and Moe’s, located on Collier Parkway, decided that hosting an event to raise money would be a good way to help. “We want to be tied in with our community, and what better way than to help out in this tragic situation,” said Amanda Edwards, general manager at World of Beer Land O’Lakes. While the tavern has no direct ties to the Oulson family, they were enthusiastic to host the event when contacted by her booking agent. They hope to raise at least $5,000 for the family, Edwards said. To reach that goal, World of Beer is donating $1 from every draft beer sold from 7 p.m. until 1 a.m. that evening. They also will have an auction for a gift basket containing World of Beer and other brewery items. By Michael Hinmanmhinman@cnewspubs.comCentral Pasco County continues its bid to become the high-technology hub of the Tampa Bay region with the start of a 135,000-square-foot office center at ComPark 75. And last week, development owner Larry Morgan welcomed Gov. Rick Scott and other dignitaries for a ceremonial groundbreaking at his latest $15 million effort. “There is something else much more important going on here than just the construction of these buildings,” Morgan, chief executive of Morgan Family Ventures and former owner of Tires Plus, told the crowd outside of his Building C on the chilly, damp morning. “The American way is for the people to have the opportunity to invest their money and time and things of that nature, and that entrepreneurial spirit certainly exists here at ComPark.” The walls for Building C are already up, with the larger Building D planned to be built not far behind it on Pet Lane. Both buildings will offer more than 30 office units ranging in size from 3,030 square feet to 5,175 square feet. Three of the units in Building C have already been leased, including the Pasco County Tax Collector’s office, which signed on after a Wesley Chapel location at The Grove fell through. Getting the building off the ground required more than 30 permits, but the bureaucratic red tape has not been as restrictive as it once was, Morgan said. The county has come a long way. “I have been a critic of regulation my whole business life, but things are definitely getting better in Pasco,” he said. “The whole county organization is getting better.” The construction project has employed nearly 600 people, and will create moreLocal senior ranks among state’s top 14By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comShe didn’t move on to the nationals, but Savannah Renberg was among 14 young women from across the state vying for that chance. Renberg, a senior at Wesley Chapel High School, was one of 16 Distinguished Young Women in Florida selected to compete earlier this month in Winter Garden. Distinguished Young Women is a national scholarship program in which high school seniors from across the country compete for scholarships. The competition requires contestants to interview effectively, demonstrate physical fitness, and perform on stage. The young women first compete in local events to advance to the state competition, and then on to the national level. While 16 qualified for the state contest, it turns out only 14 — including Renberg — made the trip to Winter Garden. Renberg, who is a member of Suncoast Dance Theatre in Lutz and has been dancing since she was 1, showcased her dancing skills in the competition. While the 18-yearold wasn’t one of the top finishers, Renberg said she’s glad she took part. “It was just a very unique experience,” said Renberg, who is the senior class president at her school. “Every day we would have rehearsal. I kept forgetting that there was a contest, that there was going to be a winner at the end because it just felt like, to me, like a performance.” She also enjoyed meeting young women from across the state, and they became fast friends. “There weren’t any cliques or anything. We all have the same desires,” Renberg said.

Gus Bilirakis pulled hundreds of angry residents into a crowded council chambers in New Port Richey last December, he vowed to make changes at the federal level to alleviate massive flood insurance hikes. But it looks like the Palm Harbor Republican’s efforts are being stopped in their tracks — by his own party’s Congressional leader. At least that’s what the Florida delegation of Democrats in Congress are claiming in a letter to House Speaker John Boehner in Washington, D.C. That letter, signed by all eight Florida Democrats serving in the U.S. House of Representatives, urges Boehner to allow the bill to move forward “on behalf the millions of families and small business owners” they represent.“The unreasonable flood insurance increases are particularly harmful to middle class families across Florida,” the letter said, adding that 180 Congressional members from both the Democratic and Republican side of the aisle have co-sponsored the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act of 2013.“Expeditious action is necessary because huge flood insurance bills are now coming due,” the letter continued. “We share the frustration of our neighbors that many of the changes adopted by FEMA are outside the original intent of the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act of 2012. Unless you take up a solution now, greater economic harm will be inflicted in Florida and around the country.”Since it suffered major losses from storms like Katrina and Sandy, the National Flood Insurance Program — a federal insurance plan administered by the Federal Emergency Management Agency — have raised premiums considerably since October, when Biggert-Waters took effect. One Pasco County homeowner told Bilirakis and other government leaders in December that his insurance had grown to $2,000 a month, close to the cost of his $2,500 monthly mortgage.In a statement to The Laker/Lutz News, Bilirakis didn’t address the Democratic claim that the Speaker is tabling the bill, but did say that he wasn’t giving up. “I have been working diligently to address the astronomical flood insurance rate increases homeowners across the country are experiencing, and I remain committed to finding a long-term solution,” Bilirakis said. “These rate increases will have grave financial impacts on current and future homeowners and could threaten our housing market’s recovery.” Bilirakis said he remains “hopeful and confident” that an agreement can be reached to address the flood insurance system’s solvency and affordability. The Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act passed Congress and was signed by President Obama in 2012. The bill phases out government subsidies for premiums in long-standing policies, but caps the annual increases at 25 percent. Pasco County Commissioner Kathryn Starkey, who has been championing flood insurance reform from the county level, says she’s surprised if the bill in Congress did indeed stall, but she can also understand why. “It doesn’t affect a lot of people in the country, and I think a lot of people don’t understand it,” she said. “I hear it all the time. ‘I don’t want to subsidize them. They should be paying their fair share.’ I think people on the water would agree on that. What’s going on here, however, is that they need this program to be implemented fairly and wisely, and it’s just not happening.” Somehow, the idea of reforming flood insurance is becoming a partisan issue, and it shouldn’t be, Starkey said. “Something’s gone awry, and it’s not a political thing,” she said. “They need to look at their science and their math, and help these poor people.” State Sen. Wilton Simpson, R-Trilby, is not waiting for the federal government to take action. He’s already a co-sponsor for S.B. 542, which is set to go before an appropriations subcommittee on Feb. 6. The bill, according to Simpson, creates flexible options for policyholders to choose from so that they can reach an affordable level of coverage. The hallmark of the bill allows policyholders the option of covering either the outstanding balance of their mortgage, or the replacement cost of their property.Democrats claim flood insurance bill has stalled in WashingtonBy B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPasco County senior citizens who are 55 or older and have been out of work for a year or more may be able to benefit from The Experience Works Community Service Employment Program.The program is reaching out to older residents in central and eastern Pasco County who need help getting back into the work force, said Dorothy Myles, state director for Experience Works. To be eligible, applicants must have an individual income of $14,588 year or less, or $19,663 or less for a family of two.A limited number of slots are available, but there always is turnover as people land full-time jobs, move, or exit the program for other reasons, Myles said. Participants work for 21 hours a week, receiving the minimum wage of $7.93 an hour. By handling community service jobs, participants can use those new skills as a springboard to land permanent jobs. The program also helps participants pursue jobs they are interested in, Myles said. “We assist them. This is participant driven,” she said. The worker indicates the kind of job they’re interested in and the program seeks to help them secure it, Myles said. Some workers who begin part-time positions are hired on to handle full-time roles by the organizations that participate in the program. There also are cases when an organization isn’t able to hire the employee, but can alert the worker to an opportunity elsewhere. Besides providing opportunities for workers to enhance their skills, the program also can help them in their job search and offer referrals for other services, Myles said. Some program participants were laid off and have been unable to find a job for more than a year, while others have been out of the workforce for years, she said. Some have encountered bias against older workers. Myles believes misperceptions about older workers often can be overcome when an employer is able to witness an experienced person’s work ethic in action. The program is having an enrollment fair on Feb. 25 and Feb. 26 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at Career Central, Room A, 4440 Grand Blvd., in New Port Richey.For additional information, call (888) 8591051, or visit www.ExperienceWorks.org.Program helps seniors get back to work FILE PHOTOFlood insurance reform passed in 2012 hasn’t rolled out the way lawmakers had hoped, with many homeowners — especially living in high-risk flood zones — facing premium increases of thousands of dollars.

That network is comprised of seven hospitals and more than 6,000 professionals serving the central Gulf Coast. The campaign has already launched in January with billboards, and will move into print, radio and television advertising by the middle of February. “This network gives us the ability to offer a broader range of expertise and services to the community we serve, and it creates tremendous opportunities for our dedicated staff and physicians,” said Shauna McKinnon, chief executive of Bayfront Health Dade City, in a release. Bayfront Health St. Petersburg will be the flagship hospital for the new network, with other facilities located in Brooksville, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Spring Hill and Venice.RETAIL JOBS GROW BY 5.5 PERCENTFlorida retailers added 55,000 jobs between December 2012 and last December — an annual growth rate of 5.5 percent, according to the January release of employment numbers from the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. From that, retail trade accounted for nearly a third of the 192,900 jobs created in Florida in 2013, and topped the statewide job growth rate of 2.6 percent, according to the Florida Retail Federation. The growth of retail in Florida has fueled an increase in sales tax collections, which account for approximately $21 billion of the state budget, the group added. Overall, the greater Tampa Bay area led all Florida metropolitan areas in over-the-year job growth, according to Gov. Rick Scott’s office, gaining 35,400 new jobs. Unemployment during that period also dropped from 7.9 percent in December 2012 to 5.9 percent last December.The biggest gains in the area came in trade, transportation and utilities with 9,500 jobs. Close behind was education and health services with 8,500 jobs, followed by professional and business services with 7,900 jobs.More than 5,700 construction jobs were created compared to the year before, while financial activities added 4,000 jobs. In December, Florida’s 24 regional workforce boards reported more than 40,800 Floridians were placed in jobs. This represents anyone who receives employment and training assistance through a One-Stop Career Center, and finds a job within 180 days. Florida requires those receiving unemployment benefits to find assistance through a One-Stop Career Center. For the state as a whole, unemployment dipped from 6.4 percent in November to 6.2 percent in December. Florida has remained below the national unemployment rate average since last April.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE 813-454-8377 16202 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. Tampa FL 33647 St. James United Methodist ChurchAn exceptional school for exceptional children opens in New Tampa by Mike Matthew special to The Laker / Lutz NewsMarilyn Davis, director of Esthers School in New Tampa, has openings for 30 exceptional students for the 2014/15 school year (starting in August 2014). Spaces are available to early applicants beginning in March. Esthers School specializes in children with autism, Downs syndrome, ADHD and other learning differences. Each child receives individual attention, impossible in a public school,Ž says Marilyn. We have one teacher for every four or five students. Our goal is to bring every child up to their full potential.Ž Some of Esthers graduates have gone on to junior college. After receiving a number of requests for a school in the Tampa area, we found a wonderful location with the Saint James United Methodist Church,Ž says Marilyn. St. James has a strong special needs ministry serving children and adults.Ž Esthers School is a Bible-based; Christian special needs school with a full curriculum covering all subject areas from kindergarten through 12th grade. Each child is tested for proper placement within the curriculum,Ž says Marilyn. Every child works at their own pace.Ž We work closely with each child to help them grow up to lead successful, independent lives.Ž Esther Berry founded Esthers School in February 2005. With little more than an unction and great concern for the education of differently abled children, Esthers School was launched as a private coed Judeo-Christian School in St. Petersburg, Florida. In desperation to achieve better services for her own son diagnosed with Down Syndrome, Esther Berry took on the journey and formulated a place where others could join her in gaining exceptional curriculum development, counseling and tutoring for their child struggling to cope with classes in traditional educational institutions. Esthers son is now 22 and living independently as a fully functional adult with a job. With modest beginnings, servicing only two students the first year, Esthers School currently serves 90 students in four locations. St. James in New Tampa, starting Monday, February 3rd, will be the fifth location. Esthers husband, Chris Berry, is traveling to Panama in February to oversee the opening of their sixth school. The pastor of a church in Panama sought out Esther to help him set up a special needs school. Marilyn has worked with Esthers school for eight years. Weve had children come into our school that wouldnt come out from under their desk,Ž says Marilyn. Within the first year, theyve moved into active participation with the rest of the class. It truly is an exceptional school.Ž Tuition has not been raised in seven years. The majority of the tuition is normally covered by the McKay scholarship program or the Florida Step-up program for lower income families. Esthers School also offers a few scholarships to help parents with costs not covered by other programs on a first come, first serve basis. Esther is committed to helping all children to learn and grow into healthy happy adults. A few years ago, Esther was instrumental in setting up three schools in Africa for AIDS orphans. Esthers New Tampa school is located at St. James United Methodist Church, 16202 Bruce B. Downs Blvd. You can call Marilyn Davis directly at (813) 454-8377 for an application or further information. The main campus is located at the New Beginnings Nazarene Church in Pinellas Park. Currently, only the main campus offers a summer school program.

www.LakerLutzNews.com February 5, 201411 By B.C. Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comPlanning is underway for Pasco County Schools’ second youth summit aimed at reducing violence and creating more inclusive schools throughout the district. The Together We Stand Youth and Community Summit 2014 will be on June 10 at River Ridge Center for the Performing Arts at River Ridge High School. The first planning session for this year’s event was on Jan. 21. This year’s theme is “building safer, more inclusive schools and communities, and reducing violence,’’ according to school district spokeswoman Linda Cobbe.Speakers and guests have not yet been fully determined, but the event will include Roy Kaplan, last year’s keynote speaker, and Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning. The daylong seminar will include a keynote address, breakout sessions, networking, lunch and a panel discussion.An online application will be available soon for speakers and exhibitors. Online registration for the free event will start in April. The summit is one of the tangible ways that Browning is trying to promote an increased “culture of caring and respect” in the county’s public schools. The lack of civility and lack of respect are issues that Browning has frequently discussed. He wrote about those concerns in an op-ed piece published last December in The Laker/Lutz News after the violent death of a 16-year-old. Another teenager was charged with the crime. “When that op-ed was penned, I think it had a sense of frustration, desperation, in it,” Browning said. “I know it will take deliberate and tough conversations within families and communities to help kids learn how to deal with conflict and cope with adversity appropriately. We must work together,” the superintendent wrote in the piece. His words struck a chord with readers. “I did get a number of emails, as well as people stopping me out in the community, when I’ve walked through schools, teachers have stopped me, administrators,” Browning said. “They agree. We’ve lost civility. We’ve lost respect. We have become, in my opinion, a society of entitlement — with no accountability, no responsibility.” There are no easy answers, Browning said. “This is like nailing Jell-O to a tree,” Browning said. “It’s such a pervasive, complex issue. It is a societal issue. It is a cultural issue. And yet, the school district is expected to fix it.” Technology adds to the challenge. “Technology is both a blessing and a curse. It’s a blessing because of the things that we can do with kids today in the classroom are incredible,” Browning said. “It’s a curse because we have technological advances in our school being used inappropriately.” Photos taken with smart phones often end up in cyberspace. And once the images are circulating, they’re out there forever, Browning said. Cyberbullying is an issue, too. The district also must deal with electronic posts in which students threaten to harm others or themselves, Browning said. A student making a flippant remark can set off a whole chain reaction of activity. “We’ve got to notify district staff, we’ve got to notify law enforcement, we reach out to moms and dads,” he said. So how does this all get back to the culture of caring and respect? “It starts at home. It starts at home,” Browning said. “These kids are sponges. They watch moms and dads. They watch neighborhood kids. They watch other adults. And these kids are going to model what they see.” For his part, the superintendent sets a tone of high expectation for the district’s staff. When it comes to influencing student behavior on campus, Browning believes that students are key to elevating the standard of behavior among their peers. This year, Browning wants middle school students to be involved in planning the youth summit. Behavior problems begin to develop when children are young, so the district needs to address them — and involve students at younger ages — in helping to find solutions. In addition to supporting the youth summit, Browning encourages student initiatives aimed at building respect at schools throughout the district, and he wants district administrators to support the youth-led efforts. Browning believes that, essentially, people have the same needs and desires. “When you take our skin color off of us, we all look the same,” he said. “Our emotions are the same. We express them differently. Our desires are the same. We want to be successful. We want to be loved. We want to be cared for. We want to be respected. “Even the hardest of hard kids want to be cared for, loved and respected. I’m convinced of that,” Browning said. “We need to be respectful. We need to be civil. We need to be caring.” Browning welcomes suggestion and help from the community.

its participants to be academically focused. For her part, Renberg has a 3.9 unweighted GPA on a 4.0 scale, and a 4.4 weighted GPA when college-level coursework is considered. Renberg became aware of the program through a friend and decided to give it a shot. While she knows she eventually wants to be a college professor teaching literature classes, she’s not sure what college she’ll attend. So far, she’s been accepted to the University of North Florida and Winthrop University in South Carolina. “I’m waiting for my acceptance to Troy University,” Renberg said about the college in Alabama. She wants to go there because it has a dance program, and she’d like to minor in dance.Renberg credits her mom, Sharon Renberg — a first-grade teacher at Chester Taylor Elementary School outside of Zephyrhills — for helping to develop a love for teaching and learning. After volunteering in her mom’s class, Renberg said she thinks she would be suited for teaching older students.She’s attracted to the university level because that would enable her to teach and to continue pursuing her love for learning at the same time. The Winter Garden contest was friendly, Renberg said, and when it was over, the competitors planned to stay in touch. “We all were swapping numbers and Instagrams and Twitters,” she said. They’ve even talked of going on a road trip together to cheer on the young women who will represent Florida at the 57th Annual Distinguished Young Women National Finals this summer in Mobile, Ala. The young women there will compete for more than $130,000 in cash scholarships.Renberg hopes the Florida contestants make the trip to Mobile. “I think it would be fun,” Renberg said.www.LakerLutzNews.com February 5, 201412 In addition, there will be a raffle in which half the money will go to the winner and the other half to the Oulson family. Moe’s Southwest Grill also is contributing to the event by pledging 25 percent of its sales for the entire day. “I grew up in Lutz (and) Land O’Lakes my whole life. It’s such a small, tight-knit community. It’s all about family out here,” said Ryan Campbell, general manager of Moe’s. “We’ve always stuck together, so why not stick together in a time of hurt?” Campbell is the son of Guy Campbell, who owns both businesses involved in the event. The benefit falls on a busy night for Moe’s, which should lead to a larger donation for the family, Campbell said. But his young employees also have helped get the word out to make sure the evening is as busy as possible. “They’ve all been passing out flyers at school, trying to get people on board and trying to get people in so we can raise as much money as possible,” Campbell said. While helping out is important to Edwards, as a member of the community it also hits close to home in other ways. Oulson left behind a daughter just shy of her second birthday. Edwards, a mother of two girls herself, delivered a son just last week. She said that the family’s loss made an impression on her, and it became important to help from a personal standpoint. “Being a mother, I couldn’t imagine being left without a husband, and I know the monetary burden of a death in the family,” she said. The event begins at 7 p.m., and patrons must be at least 21 to attend. Live music will be performed by Keko & Mo’ Gravy. World of Beer is located at 2081 Collier Parkway, and Moe’s Southwest Grill is located at 2087 Collier Parkway. For more information, call (813) 9489400. VICTIM, from page 1 SENIOR, from page 1 than 250 jobs once the units start filling up. Many of those jobs, Morgan said, would be high-waged. And that could give a local boost to Scott, who is facing a tough re-election this year potentially against his predecessor, Charlie Crist, and working to raise what has been consistently low approval ratings. “We all care about what happens to you,” Scott said. “We want jobs. The most important thing we can do is create an environment that will get to work.” Sen. John Legg, R-Lutz, says he can only see growth in Wesley Chapel’s future thanks to projects like ComPark. “Wesley Chapel is the hotbed of economic opportunities in the state of Florida,” he said, adding that government can help developers by getting “out of the way.” “It’s an honor to get out of your way and let you do your job,” Legg said. ComPark 75 is 60 acres of developable land just off Wesley Chapel Boulevard to the west of Tampa North Aero Park. Only three units remain available in the first phase of ComPark’s construction of two nearby buildings that total a little more than 100,000 square feet. Morgan also hopes to build a four-story office building on the eastern side of the property fronting Interstate 75.New State Rep. Amanda Murphy, who succeeded Mike Fasano in the Florida Legislature, was the only Democratic lawmaker on hand at the ceremony. She said the ComPark project would help the entire county, although she did wish it was in her district. “I am a little jealous because the other side of the county doesn’t get something as wonderful and beautiful as this,” said Murphy, who is based in New Port Richey. “But it benefits all of Pasco County, and that’s what it’s all about.”JOBS, from page 1 The Laker/Lutz News Staff ReportHillsborough County is helping residents pay their electric bill through its Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program, or LIHEAP.

Guarnieri spoke about national security post-Sept. 11, 2001. Sharing a lighter moment are, from left, Guarnieri, former PFRWC president Pat Orella, current PFRWC president Meg Merritt, and Walter Andruszszyn, director of the University of South Florida’s Program in National and Competitive Intelligence.POLITICALAGENDA will never come to you and say ‘Vote for me’ because there is another leader in our county who thinks I’m pretty good.”Littlefield is referring to one of his Republican primary challengers, Mike Moore, who already touts nine endorsements on his campaign website. They are from people like Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco, Pasco County Schools superintendent Kurt Browning, and two mayors — Tim Newlon of San Antonio, and Danny Burgess of Zephyrhills.Littlefield entered the race Jan. 16, and has yet to file campaign finance reports. Moore, however, is leading the money pack with just under $41,000 raised. The third Republican in the race, Bob Robertson, has raised a little more than $10,000 since announcing his candidacy last summer.

Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, officially announced the start of his re-election campaign on Jan. 21 at events in Lakeland and Plant City. Ross, currently in his second term, is a conservative Republican with a platform to lower taxes, protect individual freedoms, and reduce government mandates. “It has been an honor and a privilege to work on behalf of the good people of Polk and Hillsborough (counties) these past three years in Congress,” Ross said in a release. “I care deeply about our community, and I have been tirelessly fighting for families across the 15th District to ensure that they can keep more of their hard-earned money and maintain their freedoms. I will continue to do all that I can to promote job growth and certainty for the future.” Ross has already raised more than $380,000, and so far would face former television journalist Alan Cohn in the general election if no one else files to run.Littlefield won’t seek endorsementsFormer State Rep. Ken Littlefield knows his main primary opponent in the Pasco County Commission race has some major endorsements from other local leaders, but he isn’t looking for any himself.“I will be asking you for your vote because you like me, and because I’ve been able to explain to you” my experience, Littlefield told the Republican Club of Central Pasco last week. “Rather, I will never come to you and say, ‘Vote for me’ because there’s another elected official that thinks I’m pretty cool.

The cheerleaders took the FHSAA crown during the competition in Kissimmee, where they were the only school representing Pasco County. “The girls are very excited, as well as myself,” Sunlake head coach Pennye Garcia said in a release. “They have been trained to know that we need to focus on the task at hand. Between the semifinal and final competition, I made a couple of changes to better our score, and it proved to be in our favor.”The first FHSAA state championship for the team had to come with some waiting. The cheerleaders earned first place during competition Jan. 30, but one team competing got held up by weather, and didn’t make it there until Friday, Garcia said. Everyone had to wait until the next day, to give that team a chance to compete.However, late Friday, Garcia got the email that Sunlake had won it all. The cheerleaders will receive their trophy and medals during a planned pep rally at Sunlake Feb. 14. To see highlights of the winning routine from Sunlake, visit Bright House Sports Networks at tinyurl.com/SunlakeCheer.Pasco’s new cheerleading state champion is Sunlake By Michael Murillommurillo@cnewspubs.comLiberty Middle School’s track team began the season with a coach who wasn’t just new to the school, she was new to coaching. And she wasn’t going to hide her enthusiasm when it came to supporting her team.“If you had seen me at the track meet, I was the one in the middle of the field screaming her head off,” Toni Kuzmicki said. Kuzmicki’s enthusiasm paid off for the school, which excelled at their cluster track meet, where athletes from different schools compete in eight events: shot put, long jump, 100-meter dash, 200-meter dash, 400meter open, 800-meter run, 4-x-100 meter relay and 4-x-200 meter relay. Only the top two in each category move on to the county championships, where the top finishers in cluster track meets from across the county compete for spots in the finals. Liberty not only sent 17 athletes to the county championships, but was represented in the finals in the long jump, 100-meter dash, 800-meter run and the 4-x-100 meter relay. While Kuzmicki was learning the ropes when it came to coaching, she already had plenty of experience with track events. She was a district champion four years in a row at her high school in Miami, participating in the one-mile and two-mile competitions. She also ran track in college at Nova Southeastern University, and was able to use that background to educate and motivate her team to excel. The athletes responded to Kuzmicki’s coaching style. “She worked with the sprinters and she was able to really give them good advice,” runner Alejandro Michel said of his coach. “We were able to take a lot more kids to county than last year.” He went on to reach the finals and placed seventh in the 800-meter run. Michel also ran track in the sixth and seventh grades, but said that the athletes now have an especially good attitude and relationship with the coaching staff. Charisma Henry, an eighth-grader who was part of the group that went to the finals, agrees that Kuzmicki and her coaches made a big difference. “The way they coached, it was cool because we raced against each other and they timed us,” she said. “And we kept on doing that, trying to get better times. And we also conditioned before and after practice.” Henry believes that the practices set the tone for the team to take things more seriously, and produced better times as a result. In Henry’s case, this year’s trip to the finals was her first. She also said that even though they raced against each other in practice, the team had strong camaraderie during the races. When she was running, she could hear people cheering and rooting for them. “You could hear Liberty from miles away. It was really great,” she said. Kuzmicki is proud of her team’s accomplishments and praised her coaching staff — Jessica Macrae, Stephanie Padilla and Katie Smith — noting that they were all first-time coaches. But she’s also started thinking about how to build on this year’s success. A number of her top performers were sixth-graders, meaning they still have a couple of years to grow and succeed on the team. Kuzmicki told them to build on the success they achieved. She’s also looking forward to growing as a coach, and improving the regimen she planned for her athletes. Conditioning is already one area designated to become a priority next year. “We kind of just took their natural ability and ran with that, but next year we’ll know to get that muscle memory formed at the beginning, and then push them as we go,” Kuzmicki said.

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. How often should I have my teeth cleaned and checked by my dentist?On average seeing a dentist twice a year is recommended for most of us. People with a high risk of dental disease might need to be seen more frequently (every 3-4 months). This risk group includes: €Smokers €Diabetics €People with a current history of gum or periodontal disease €People with a weak immune response to bacterial infections €People who tend to get more cavities or buildup of plaque on their teeth than the average person Q A Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE By Mike MatthewSpecial to The Laker / Lutz NewsEd Klaameyer, a licensed agent for US Health Advisors, strives to help people successfully navigate the health care jungle. Health care is on everyones mind,Ž says Ed. Its always a topic of conversation at the BNI (business) networking group I belong to in New Tampa.Ž Its very confusing with all the changes taking place,Ž says Ed. People are trying to figure out who and what to believe. There is so much conflicting information being presented by the media.Ž Eds role is to help people understand the health care marketplace and make the best choices for both the shortterm and long-term. His goal is to provide his clients with a comprehensive health care plan that effectively meets their needs without breaking their budget. He was an international sales manager for 15 years with DHL when the package delivery industry was starting up. Our culture was changed forever through the impact companies like DHL, Federal Express and UPS had on us,Ž says Ed. It changed the way businesses operate and what customers expect from them.ŽWere now seeing the same longterm cultural effects taking place with health care,Ž says Ed. Everyone, regardless of their age, whether they work for a big company, small company or are self-employed, are being affected by these changes.ŽEds primary focus is on small businesses with less than 10 employees, sole proprietors and families. I owned a small business for 15 years, so I understand what business owners and their families go through as theyre making health care decisions,Ž says Ed. Their biggest cost is payroll with health care coming in second and rising fast.ŽOur motto is HOPE: helping other people everyday,Ž says Ed. The first thing I look at is what they feel their needs are. Then we look at networks, doctors, hospitals, prescriptions and premiums. These are the key items for building a comprehensive health care plan.ŽUS Health Advisors represents US Health Group.

The women are building the home as part of Habitat’s Women Build program. The house will add to the more than 2,000 Habitat homes built by women throughout the United States and in dozens of countries around the world. “Women can make a difference in their communities by building homes and raising awareness of local housing needs,” said Stephanie Black, director of development and public relations for Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County, in a release. “Women Build doesn’t exclude men. It includes and empowers women.” This is the sixth Women Build project taken on by a local Habitat group. Underwritten by hardware retail chain Lowe’s Companies Inc., it gives women the opportunity to learn construction skills and to move families out of poverty housing. More than 12 million children — or one out of every six — are living in poverty, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.Houses built by Habitat are sold to those in need at no profit, no down payment and with a zero-interest mortgage. The local Habitat, founded in 1994, has built or rehabilitated more than 120 homes in the eastern and central parts of Pasco County.Construction on the home begins Feb. 7 at 15074 Gainesville Road in Spring Hill.
