Guv'na hopefuls kick off campaigns


By Michael Murillo
mmurillo@lakerlutznews.corn

The candidates to become the next Lutz
Guv'na are all a bunch of sellouts.
At the annual Guv'na debate May 10 at
the Old Lutz School, the five hopefuls for
the ceremonial title were doing whatever
they could to raise cash: Selling cookies,
brownies and even specialty popcorn.They
had raffles and drawings. They even an-
nounced yard sales and other fundraisers
scheduled for the next couple months.
But unlike a traditional political cam-
paign, the money raised doesn't go toward
buttons, bumper stickers or negative attack
ads. It goes to local schools, civic organiza-
tions and other groups that benefit from the
Lutz Guv'na event, which names the winner
solely by how much money they raise for
charity. Last year the candidates as a group
raised nearly $12,000, most of that coming


from the winner and current Guv'na, Suzin
Carr.
The debate was an opportunity for the
candidates to kick off their campaigns with
smiles, handshakes and outrageous promises
if "elected" to office. One vowed to rid the
area of pesky mosquitoes.Another promised
a five-day weekend.And they participated in
contests to show their ability to handle the
job, such as watermelon eating and knitting.
If it all sounds a little strange, Carr said
that's exactly how it's supposed to be.
"It's a silly, community spirit, wonderful
thing for Lutz,";' she said. "It's supposed to be
tacky. It's supposed to be off-the-cuff crazy."
Having a campaign for an honorary title
is the kind of event that keeps Lutz's small-
town appeal intact.The fact that the money
goes directly to organizations that need it
makes the Lutz Guv'na race a positive force

Surgeon makes


history at

Dr. Pamela Twitty made history onApril
30 at St.Joseph's Hospital-North by becom-
ing the first surgeon inTampa to perform a
single-site robotics-assisted hysterectomy.
The type of surgery had been performed
previously in Clearwater and St. Petersburg,
but not in Tampa,Twitty said.
She used a da Vinci robotic system to
perform the surgery, controlling instruments
from a console in the operating room.
In traditional hysterectomy surgery, doc-
tors make a five- to seven-inch incision in
the woman's abdomen and remove the
uterus through the laceration. That ap-
proach leaves noticeable scars and requires
a month or two of recoveryTwitty said.
But with robotics-assisted surgery, recov-
ery is quicker with less post-operative pain
because it's less invasive, and it reduces scar-

ring as well.
Twitty performed the surgery on Land
0' Lakes resident Hollie Morris.
I was pretty excited about it," the 35-
year-old said.


Morris didn't have any misgivings about
being Twitty's first patient for this proce-

Teacher uses technology to open new worlds of learning


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@lakerlutznews.com

There's no doubt about it. Language arts
teacher Aimee Nadow is tech-savvy.
On any given day, the Academy at the
Lakes teacher uses technology to help her
students enhance their reading, writing and
creativity. On one day, for instance, she'll set
them loose onAutoCAD computer design
software to create the balcony scene from
"Romeo and Juliet." On another day, students
use PicMonkey photo editor to design book
covers for the manuscripts they're writing.
They're also frequent users of Pinterest
to digitally "pin up" work that they've done,
and they know how to edit digital clips.
Harnessing technical tools in her classes
is all in a day's work for Nadow, whose
mother was a children's librarian, and her fa-
ther always was ahead of the crowd when it
came to technology.


B.C. MANION/STAFF PHOTO
Aimee Nadow uses a combination of techni-
cal skills and a personal touch to make her
classes engaging.


Nadow has a deep appreciation for the
power of language, and a clear understand-
ing of how traditional and modern tools can
enliven lessons. She sees the value of being
able to skim information, but also knows the
importance of being able to delve deeply
into subjects to gain knowledge.
The independent private school where
she teaches has long understood the quality
of Nadow's teaching skills, middle division
director John Pitcairn said.And,Academy at
the Lakes is delighted that Nadow has re-
ceived national recognition.
The middle division teacher recently was
named a 2014 PBS LearningMedia Digital
Innovator. It's a distinction bestowed to just
100 educators nationwide.
As a member of that select group, the
Land 0' Lakes woman will take part in a
yearlong professional development program.

Elevated road plans collapse, but battle not over


By Michael Hinman
mhinman@lakerlutznews.corn

Jason Amerson was caught flat-footed
when he first learned that a private compa-
ny planned to build an estimated
$2.2 billion elevated toll road in front of his
Stonegate home.
He vowed to stop the road before the
first surveys could even be done.And over
the weekend,Amerson finally had a chance
to celebrate when Florida Department of
Transportation secretary Ananth Prasad offi-
cially killed the project.
But as vocal asAmerson's group, Pasco
Fiasco, had become to protest the project, it
was actually International Infrastructure
Partners who hastened its own demise
when it shifted gears and started to ask
FDOT for taxpayer assistance to fund the
project.That was just too much for Prasad to
hear, especially with public sentiment
against the road growing.
"He came to the conclusion that the
project does not look very promising,"
FDOT spokesman Dick Kane said last week.
"The reason, he said, was that when they
looked into the financial of the unsolicited
proposal, it was not what we were initially
led to believe."
When Kane shared Prasad's thoughts, the
toll road project was not dead, but it was
dying. Pasco Fiasco moved forward with a
planned rally at Sunlake High School for
next Monday.The door had been left open
for more negotiations, but all of it came to
an abrupt end last Friday.
"The department was unable to reach an
agreement with International Infrastructure
Partners LLC on a framework of financing
and various design concepts for the corri-
dor that would be acceptable to all parties
and address the concerns of the local com-
munity," Prasad said in a release Friday."In
absence of this framework, advancing this
project would not make any sense."


MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO
Carlos Saenz and Michele Sakalian plant signs for a planned Pasco Fiasco rally that was
supposed to take place next week at Sunlake High School. The rally, however, was indefinite-
ly postponed after the Florida Department of Transportation killed the private elevated toll
road proposal for the State Road 54/56 corridor.


That decision forced Pasco Fiasco to
make one of its own, indefinitely postpon-
ing the planned rally, which was being
funded from the pockets of its members.
Even if the rally had gone forward, it
would've been money well spent, Amerson
said.


"We all are finding that with every dollar
we spend, we're going to get a return of 10
times that in home value savings,"Amerson
said. "I'd rather spend $200 now than
$40,000 to $50,000 in home value losses
later."
International Infrastructure Partners, or


IIP, first expressed an interest in building
what would've been Florida's first private
toll road in June 2013. It submitted a pro-
posal to FDOT, which controls the rights of
way along the State Road 54/56 corridor be-
tween Zephyrhills and New Port Richey,
where it would build a 33-mile expressway
similar to the Lee Roy Selmon Expressway
in Tampa. Using private money, IIP would
collect tolls from travelers to help pay for
the cost.All they needed was FDOT to give
up the rights of way along the corridor to
make it happen.
Yet, throughout the process, FDOT made
it clear they would not move forward with-
out the blessing of Pasco County, although it
didn't officially need it. County commission-
ers gave a blessing late last year to study the
proposal more, but in February,
Commissioner Henry Wilson came out
against the project. He was joined in April
by commission chair Jack Mariano.
However, this might not be the end for
Pasco Fiasco.
"We're not high-fiving each other or
doing our end zone victory dances just yet,"
Amerson said.
County administrator Michele Baker said
even with the elevated toll road gone, some-
thing is going to have to be done with the
corridor as more and more cars look to go
east and west through southern Pasco.
"Pasco County will continue to engage
the public and move forward with its analy-
ses and studies in order to determine how
to manage future congestion on the State
Road 54/56 corridor," Baker said in a state-
ment last week.
That means taking a close look at the
long-range transportation plan, which is set
for adoption in December.
Richard Connors, one of the founders of
Pasco Fiasco, says that means there's more
work ahead of them.
"It's a victory," he said."But we still have a
long way to go."

Your Lawn Needs Your Attention Now
Before The Summer Heat And Rains


Your lawn is one of your biggest
household investments and replac-
ing it can cost thousands of dollars.
McGuire's Beautiful Outdoors
doesn't want that to happen to
you. Its preventative lawn care
programs will keep your lawn
healthy and green during dry spells
and through the hot summer
months.
"The key to keeping your lawn
beautiful is planning ahead and
working as a team with your lawn
service company," says Joel
McGuire, co-owner of McGuire's
Beautiful Outdoors in Land 0'
Lakes. "It's essential to have an
action plan in place before the
summer heat and rains."
Joel and his partner, Eric
Robinson, have been working with
Pasco and Hillsborough home-
owners for more than 10 years.
They know firsthand the problems
lawns develop in this area and
know how to treat these condi-
tions so that lawns grow beautiful-
ly and become the envy of a neigh-
borhood.
"Most homeowners start think-
ing about their lawn service in the
spring. By May, it's critical you
have a plan in place to ward off
brown spots, chinch bugs, mole
crickets and fungus," says Joel.
"This is also a good time to make
sure your irrigation system is work-
ing properly so you don't overwater
during the summer rainy season."
Most lawn failures occur
because the lawn service company
does not pay attention to the big
picture and is treating symptoms
instead of providing a long-term
solution.
"If a lawn has a problem, there's
a reason why," says co-owner Eric.


"We are experts at finding that
reason and developing a plan to
correct the problem permanently."
"It's always easier and less
expensive to prevent a problem
than it is to cure it," adds Joel. "We
save our customers money by being
pro-active and taking action as
soon as we can.
McGuire's Beautiful Outdoors
offers homeowners everything
from comprehensive lawn care
packages that includes mowing
and mulching, to specific services
such as fertilizer and pest control
that most people do not under-
stand how to properly use.
For homeowners who want help
with their shrubs and trees,
McGuire's recommends plants
that grows best and thrive in every
environment, and even handles
the installation of plant material
and hardscape, such as brick and
stone.
Customers with questions or
concerns can always speak directly
to Joel or Eric. "We are always
available to talk to customers and
prospects, and never promise what
we can't deliver," says Eric.
Most of McGuire's customers
live in middle income to affluent
neighborhoods with deed restric-
tions and high levels of landscap-
ing in Lutz, Land 0' Lakes and
Wesley Chapel.
"We are proud to offer our cus-
tomers the highest level of service
at competitive prices," said Joel.
"Our goal is not to be the biggest
lawn care company in the area, but
to be the best.
If you're ready to make your
lawn care problems a thing of the
past, give Joel and Eric a call today
at McGuire's Beautiful Outdoors.

Area Odyssey of the Mind teams qualify for world competition


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@lakerlutznews.corn
An Odyssey of the Mind team from Pine
View Middle School will head to the OM
World competition inAmes, Iowa, at the end
of May.
Another OM team from Land 0' Lakes
High School also qualified for the interna-
tional competition, but is not going because
of the competition's timing.All of the mem-
bers on that team are graduating seniors and
are busy with senior year activities.
A total of six of the 57 Pasco County
teams that competed at the state level quali-
fied for the international contest.The other
qualifying teams are Mitchell and Gulf high
schools, Deer Park Elementary and Seven
Springs Middle schools.
Odyssey of the Mind is an international
program that encourages youths to work to-
gether as teams to use their creative and
analytical skills to solve problems.
The Pine View team, which placed sec-
ond in its division, tackled a problem called
"Not So Haunted House."
The Pine View team made up of
Cameron Mitchell, Zachery Dahm, Tristan
Wiles, Cody Schwartz, Caleb Leeb and Timmy
Heuser is psyched about competing at
worlds. They'll battle 67 teams from such
places as Switzerland, Hong Kong, Singapore,
Mexico, India, Russia and Great Britain.
Some team members think they have a
pretty good shot for a good showing at
worlds. Others aren't so sure."It's not neces-
sarily about if we're in the top or in the
bottom. We made it to worlds. That says
something," said Tristan Wiles, whose moth-
er, StacyWiles, coaches the team.
Schwartz is looking forward to the expe-
rience, no matter how the team does.
"I get to meet people from around the
world," he said.
When it came to solving the problem at
state, the team had no trouble figuring out


their theme, Heuser said. But agreeing to the
approach to use was more challenging.
"Everybody wanted to do their own
thing, and then nobody understood what
the other person was saying," Heuser said.
Leeb agreed,joking:"Success is 1 percent
inspiration, 99 percent perspiration and 100
percent bickering."
But they worked through it, StacyWiles
noted.
"It was not an easy process and that's
what makes it so cool," the coach said.
It's a balancing act,Tristan Wiles said.
"We all have to come together to create a
solution,"Tristan Wiles said."We all have to
be one team, in order to solve the problem.
That's the whole point of this.You need to
learn how to work well with each other.You
need to learn to listen to each other."
The coach has confidence in them be-
cause they are funny, creative, resourceful
and kind, Stacy Wiles said.
Each team member brings different
strengths. Mitchell and Dahm are good at
tackling logistics and engineering. Tristan
Wiles is artistic. Schwartz places a key role
in writing the script. Heuser helps keep
things rolling and does considerable back-
stage work.
The team must cover its own expenses
for the trip, but Pine View's PTSA and Pasco
County Schools both contributed $1,000
each to help cover the costs, the coach said.
Although the Land 0' Lakes team isn't
traveling to worlds, team members -
Rachel Granruth, Victoria Arriaga, Dalton
Sihite, Blake Lash, Raelynn Lewis, Taylore
Presta, and Jenny Huynh are delighted
that they qualified.
They used an out-of-this-world approach
to tackling their challenge, which was called
"Driver's Test."The vehicle they made trav-
eled through space, in their imaginary
world.
Their skit included alien beings that wor-
shipped Beyonce and channeled Justin

This Odyssey of the Mind team from Land 0' Lakes High School placed second at a state
competition to qualify for the World OM competition, but they won't attend because of
scheduling conflicts. Shown here, from left are Blake Lash, Raelynn Lewis, Jenny Huynh,

Bieber.They adapted songs from stage musi-
cals such as "The Book of Mormon" and
"Hairspray," and they incorporated solar
flares and shooting stars in their story line.
In short, they had a blast coming up with
ideas and executing them.
They also spent a lot of time working to-
gether to prepare for the state competition.
"You learn some practical skills. I know
how to sew now," Sihite said.
"I know how to use power tools," Huynh
said.
"Everyone is good at something,"Arriaga
said."You build on each other's ideas."
Lewis thinks more students should get
involved in OM.


"It's a really interesting mix of sciences
and arts," she said.
Many members of the team have been
doing OM for years, Lash said. He was even
coached by StacyWiles when he attended
Pine View.
Lash has been involved, he said, because
it's fun. Other teammates agreed.
Andrew Southwick, the OM sponsor for
the Land 0' Lakes team, is a former OM
competitor. He was impressed by the team's
performance.
"Their personalities are a little bit in-
tense," Southwick said, but they worked well
together. "It's good to see that creativity isn't
dead."

Pepin Academies expands


reach into Pasco County


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@lakerlutznews.corn

PepinAcademies, an institution that edu-
cates students with learning disabilities, is
accepting applications for its new charter
school location in Pasco County.
The school, which will begin classes
Aug. 18, serves students who have learning
or learning-related disabilities.
The Pepin Academies Inc. of Pasco
County has been receiving applications
from all over Pasco County, and is open to
students from outside Pasco County as well,
if the parents receive the necessary"out-of-
county" paperwork from the district where
their child lives.
The school, which was founded in 1999,
already has two locations in Hillsborough
County one on HillsboroughAvenue in
Tampa, and the other in Riverview
Principal Celeste Keller, an educator with
decades of experience, will lead the school.
She's been at Pepin for more than nine
years, serving as director of the school's ele-
mentary school in Hillsborough, director of
its transition school for 18-to-22 year-olds,
and most recently, as director of student
services.
The Pasco County School Board ap-
proved a 15-year charter contract with
PepinAcademies, based on its nonprofit sta-
tus, its track record in Hillsborough, and its
intention to secure funding for a permanent
building. If substantial progress isn't made to
secure the funding for the school building,
the school board could reduce the term of
the charter to a maximum of five years, ac-
cording to a board action taken Feb. 18.
Patty 0' Brien of Zephyrhills said her
daughter Paige, 14, has attended Pepin's
school in Hillsborough, but will make the
switch to the Pasco location.
"I'm looking forward to this for her be-
cause she's very excited about this new
school," O'Brien said.I'Tm very happy with
Pepin."

Communications deficits
The Medical Center of Trinity, 9330 State
Road 54, will host the Chatterboxes support
group May 15 at 3 p.m.
The group is to assist individuals suffer-


0' Brien noted the school concentrates
on what her daughter is able to do and
builds on that.That wasn't true in St. Louis,
where the family used to live, she added.
By acknowledging her daughter's
strengths, the school has helped her daugh-
ter build a sense of self-confidence, O'Brien
said, noting her daughter has many chal-
lenges. She's hearing impaired, has autism
and has attention deficit disorder with hy-
peractivity.
The tuition-free charter school in Pasco
initially will operate out of a leased space at
9750 Little Road in New Port Richey. That
building has a maximum capacity for 325
students.The school will serve students in
third through 10th grade. It will add addi-
tional years as it continues operations, but
has no current plans to teach children
younger than third grade.
The school does not provide transporta-
tion, but it will help parents arrange
carpools.
In Hillsborough, the school works with
Ozzie Saez with Kids Door to Door. Saez
currently provides pick-up and drop-off
services for some parents.There is a fee,
and the family contacts Saez directly to set
it up.
Students attending Pepin must have a
learning disability which may include:
Asperger syndrome, attention deficit disor-
der, attention deficit disorder with
hyperactivity, educable mentally handi-
capped, pervasive development delay, or a
medical condition that affects learning, such
as Tourette syndrome.
Pepin offers students an opportunity to
seek a standard or special diploma.
The school's philosophy focuses educa-
tion not only on students' academic needs,
but also on their social and emotional
needs. Besides accepting student applica-
tions, it also is accepting for teaching and
staff positions.

Proud to report more


readers than ever before


By Diane Kortus
Publisher
About this time
every year, I write a
column about our
annual circulation
and readership audit.
I use this audit to talk
about the number of
papers we print and
deliver, and more im-
l- portantly, how many
people regularly read The Laker or Lutz
News.
In the free newspaper industry,
Circulation Verification Council has been
verifying circulation and readership since
1992.Today it audits more than 2,000 pub-
lications with more than 55 million in
circulation, including The Laker and Lutz
News.
Well, it's audit time again, and our num-
bers are even better than they were a year
ago. Our circulation has increased by 3.8
percent to 42,600, and our readership
grew by 3 percent to give us 79 percent
household penetration.
Most newspapers would be thrilled
with 60 percent household penetration -
a percentage most publishers have not
seen since before the Internet explosion
of news. For our papers to be at 79 per-
cent household penetration is enviable,
and one we're very proud to report.
To put our circulation growth in per-
spective, earlier this month most daily
newspapers in Florida reported circulation
drops by the auditing company they use.
Close to home, the Tampa Bay Times re-
ported its mid-week circulation was down
7 percent, while The Tampa Tribune
showed no growth after accounting for
the circulation gain of a weekly paper it
bought in ClearwaterApril 2013.
As proud as we are about our audit and
the gains we've made this past year, I real-
ize you may think these numbers a bit


boastful and not really relevant to your life.
It probably doesn't matter to you
whether we throw 10,000 papers or
50,000, just as long as your paper is
thrown in your driveway or dropped at
your newsstand every Wednesday.You get
to decide each week if you want to take
the time to read the stories and look at the
ads from local businesses.
It's our job to make sure your paper
has stories and information that are rele-
vant and you find interesting to read. And
it's our job to make sure you can count on
your paper to be delivered every week so
reading it becomes a habit.
In addition to circulation verification,
the audit gives us demographical informa-
tion about our readers, which we use to
choose the stories we write.
We know that 57 percent of our readers
are women, that 42 percent are between the
ages of 35 and 54, and another 41 percent
are over 55. Our readers are well educated
(74 percent have attended or graduated
from college) and affluent (30 percent have
household incomes above $100,000, and an-
other 20 percent above $75,000).
The audit also surveys readers and asks
what types of stories they want to read.
That's why we write a lot about growth
and development, things to do and stories
about people and organizations in our
communities.We've worked hard this past
year to bring you more stories about top-
ics that interest you.
This year's audit is, as they say, proof in
the pudding that we've improved. It's inde-
pendent confirmation that we're doing a
good job, and that the changes we've
made in our news coverage this past year
have resulted in increased readership.
And this is tremendously gratifying to
my staff and I because we love what we
do. Nothing is more emotionally satisfying
than to know that our hard work is appre-
ciated, and that we make a difference in
the community where we work and live.

She's worth your love
Luna is a 10-month-old teenage kitty looking for a human that will satisfy her
feline needs. She doesn't ask for much food and water at regular intervals, and
a bit of play during the day. She needs someone to listen to her purrs and hold
her in the evening while she performs her 'kneading' ritual. She is a bit shy at first,
but will be worth your love and patience.
If you would like to invite Luna into your family, email

New building signals bright future at Saint Leo University


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@lakerlutznews.corn

Imagine, if you will, a place
where students learning how to be-
come teachers could work with
avatars, to simulate real-life teaching
challenges.
Sound far-fetched and futuristic?
Well, that's exactly the scenario
that will begin playing out when a
new $14 million academic building
on the campus of Saint Leo
University is completed.
The avatars are actually created
by actors in a program developed
by the University of Central Florida.
The avatars are used to help pre-
pare teachers for situations that
may arise in classrooms, said
Maribeth Durst, vice president of
academic affairs at Saint Leo
University.
It's a great way to practice deal-
ing with situations in an entirely
safe environment, Durst noted.
And, that's just one example of Saintt
the new ways the university be- will gn
lives its new academic building
will broaden opportunities for its students
to prepare for their professional lives.
The university had a celebration May 2
to mark the official groundbreaking on the
four-story, 48,000-square-foot building. It will
have 16 classrooms and 24 faculty offices.


COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UN
Leo University had a ceremony May 2 to mark the beginning of construction of a four-story building
eatly expand the university's academic space.


The larger quarters will house liberal
arts, education, criminal justice and social
work classes, as well as graduate-level class-
es for continuing professional education. It
was designed to foster greater opportunities
for students to work together and mingle,


Durst said. For instance, instead of long, nar-
row corridors that tend to separate people,
there are gathering spaces to bring them to-
gether.
Some highlights include an area to allow
simulations of classroom situations and a


21 st century classroom for kinder-
garten through 12th grade
education students and others to
use.
The fourth floor of the building
will be a shell, initially, until there's
a need to build it out.
Creative Contractors Inc., is con-
structing the structure, with an
expected completion date of July
2015. Gould Evans of Tampa is the
building's architect.
Beverly Frank, the project archi-
'" tect, said the design seeks to
embody Saint Leo's core values of
excellence, community, respect,
personal development, responsible
stewardship and integrity.
"The culture at Saint Leo is very
inspirational," Frank said.
The entire design, from how the
building was sited to its color palette,
drew on the university's desire to cre-
ate a welcoming environment, and to
create a sense of connection. That
IVERSITY connection applies both to people
g that within the building and to the build-
ing's relationship with other places
on campus.
The building uses energy-efficient sys-
tems and follows the standards of the U.S.
Green Building Council, Frank said.
Saint Leo University is a regionally ac-
credited, liberal arts institution at 33701
State Road 52 in St. Leo.

in the community, Carr explained. Scout
troops, the Civil Air Patrol, Friends of the
Library and the Old Lutz School itself are
just some of the groups who will benefit
from the money candidates raise.
This year's crop of candidates seemed
eager to kick off their campaigns. Liane
Caruso is the founder and chief marketing
officer of Limelight Marketing. She has a

relationship with the doctor.
"I love Dr.Twitty. I trust her completely,"
Morris said.
When Twitty explained the procedure,
Morris said she could sense the doctor's ex-
citement about performing a surgery such
as this.At the same time,Twitty wanted to
make sure Morris was completely comfort-
able with the approach.
Morris found the prospect appealing for
numerous reasons, she said. For one thing,
since she has children, it was important for
her to recover quickly and get back to the
business of daily life. Secondly, she'd prefer
not to have a large scar.
The surgery is done with a small cut in
the naval.
"You can't even see it," Morris said.
Although she has felt some soreness,
Morris said she's sure she would have felt
more pain if she'd had additional cuts.
"The day after surgery, I was up walking
around," Morris said.
In traditional hysterectomies, the size of
the scar can vary based upon the surgical
procedure that is used, the patient's anato-
my, and what needs to be done,Twitty said.
The single-site option may be especially ap-
pealing to women in Florida, where
swimming and going to the beach are popu-
lar pastimes.
"A lot of our patients in this area and in


strong knowledge of social media and a love
of tacos going for her.
Susan Gulash is the owner and creative
force behind Gulash Graphics. She couldn't
attend the debate, but was well represented
with her team both at the booth and the
podium.
"Papa"Jay Muffly was the longtime presi-
dent of the Lutz Volunteer Fire Association.
He's the choice of the Lutz-Land 0' Lakes
Woman's Club, and had plenty of supporters
in attendance.


surrounding areas are interested in still being
able to wear their swimsuits and their bikinis,"
Twitty said.They want to be able to be out in
the sun without any sign of their surgery
The less invasive procedure also typically
means less time in the hospital,Twitty said.
With a traditional hysterectomy, the hos-
pital stay is two to four days.With the new
surgery, it is often an overnight stay, or in
some cases, they can leave the same day.
"And, healing and post-operative pain is
typically less," Twitty said."You have a much
smaller incision. It's in a location where
there's less tension on the incision.There's
an expedited return to daily life because
there's less recuperation time, less pain."
Twitty believes this type of surgery will
become more commonly used as doctors
are trained in using the technology and
more patients become aware of it.
"I've already started talking to a number
of my patients about this technology and
being able to offer it,"Twitty said. "They are
absolutely excited about it."
Although robotic surgery itself has been
around for about a decade, single-site tech-
nology where one incision is made
through the belly button is a process
that's only been around for the past couple
years or so,Twitty said.
"Initially, it was available for general sur-
geons," she said. But there has been an
expansion of the use by doctors in various
specialties and more procedures have been
approved.


Dr. Cindy Perkins is the owner of the
Back in HealthWellness Center. She came to
the debate armed with cupcakes for sale
and a pink tutu to wear while on the panel.
Jerome Smalls is the director of opera-
tions at Soccer Gemz, a sports program for
younger children. His program is so positive-
oriented that when asked to showcase his
"mean coach" voice, he only shouted en-
couragement.
Carr, the only two-time Lutz Guv'na,
loves wearing the sash that designates her



TEACHER, from page 1

She is excited by the prospect of being
able to learn from other educators who
share her enthusiasm for using technical
tools to enliven instruction. During a recent
class, Nadow used a giant touch-screen tele-
vision to display images and to foster
discussion regarding a Holocaust art project
the students will create.
They have been assigned to demonstrate
their understanding of the book, "Night," by
Elie Wiesel, a Holocaust survivor. They'll
show the teacher what the book means
through an art project of their choosing, and
they'll describe their artistic intentions in ac-
companying text.
Besides preparing students for that as-
signment, Nadow also guided them through
software called ETS Criterion that analyzes
writing to identify grammatical and sen-
tence structure issues that should be
addressed. As students navigated through
the program, Nadow moved about the class-
room, responding to their questions and
helping them stay on track.
She offered extra help outside of class, if
anyone needed it.
Nadow clearly is in command of her
technical skills, but she also has an obvious
rapport with students. She said she has a se-
cret weapon: It's called respect.
On the first day of classes she tells her
middle division students that she will treat
them as adults, unless they behave as chil-
dren in which case, they'll face the
consequences.
"I try to afford them as much dignity as
possible, because I remember situations
when I was in middle school and I would
see a student that would be treated unfairly,
or would be embarrassed in front of the
classroom," Nadow said."That is absolutely
not the way to teach.You lose so much time
if you're focused on classroom manage-


as current title-holder. But she knows her
term will come to an end soon, and she has
some advice for those who want her job:
Enjoy the race, and the title that might come
with it.
"Have fun. Put yourself out there," she
said."For me, when I ran, it wasn't as Suzin
Carr. I was in a character.The Guv'na to me
is a character.
"Nobody believes that at home I'm really
a private person. But when I'm in the public
eye like this,you just go with it."


ment, rather than learning."
"Seventh and eighth grade is my perfect
fit," she said."I really enjoy their (students')
sense of humor, their creativity, their willing-
ness."
Nadow also appreciates their trust, and
believes in using a personal touch with her
students.
As they file into her classroom, she greets
each student by name and shakes each
hand. As the kids make their way to their
places, there's a low-level rumble as they
chat.
The teacher uses a simple routine to set-
tle them down. She counts 5,4,3,2,1 -
and by the time she finishes, students are fo-
cused on her.
It's easy to see that Nadow strives to cre-
ate an environment where students are
engaged and want to learn.When she poses
questions, they are eager to respond and
share their ideas.
While she obviously is technically com-
petent, Nadow also possesses other
important skills that equip her to be effec-
tive, Pitcairn said.
"It's her enthusiasm, her positivity, her
joy, her human qualities that are a critical
part of making her the very valuable teacher
that she is today," Pitcairn said.
Posters in her classroom reveal that
Nadow has high standards, but a kind heart.
One sets out the class rules. Of course,it has
such things as "Always tell the truth.Work
hard. Listen to your parents. Keep your
promises."
But it also includes these instructions:
"Laugh out loud. Be grateful. Use kind
words.Try new things. Dream big."
Another poster offers this message from
Ralph Waldo Emerson:"Be silly. Be honest.
Be kind.'
Finally, a sign above the classroom door
proclaims "Carpe diem," or "seize the day."
That seems to be Nadow's motto, and
one she wants to pass along to her students.

Pasco agribusiness teacher wants knowledge to grow in Korea


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@lakerlutznews. corn

Kelli Hamilton has a condition and she
isn't a bit ashamed to admit it.
"I'm an 'ag' nerd," said the Pasco High
School agribusiness and natural resources
teacher.
She's so interested in agriculture that
she's planning to spend a month in South
Korea this summer learning about that
country's agricultural education programs.
Hamilton already has been to Ireland and to
Iowa to get acquainted with agriculture in
those parts of the world.
She's making the trip to South Korea
through a University of Florida/Penn State
Program for undergraduate, graduate and
kindergarten through 12th-grade teachers.
Hamilton is among a group of teachers

While in South Korea, they will see the
country's Future Farmers of Korea program,
which is based on FFA. They also will ob-
serve various levels of education programs
and various agricultural techniques.
The trip begins June 14 and concludes
July 13.
"I'm pumped," Hamilton said."I definitely
want to learn more about how they do
their education system."
She hopes to pick up different teaching
techniques and to have a better understand-
ing of the differences between agriculture
in South Korea and agriculture here.

ture just because it's a devel-
oping country," Hamilton said.
"They've had a lot of strife in
the past 50,60,70 years, so I
want to see how they're
changing and adapting to
that."
The study abroad course
and experience is a joint ven-
ture between the Department
of Agricultural Education and
Communication at the
University of Florida, and the
Department of Agricultural
and Extension Education at
Penn State.
In an essay explaining why
she wanted to study abroad in
Korea, Hamilton wrote,"When
traveling overseas, we are able Kelli Hamiltc

"Agriculture is in every cor- tureinSouth
ner of this planet," she added. study progr
"It is different in some ways,
but ultimately the same."
She also expressed confidence that she
could transfer the knowledge she gains into
lessons in her Pasco High classroom.
Hamilton already knows how to give stu-
dents real-world lessons, saidAmber Hill, 17,
a senior.
"She's an amazing teacher. She doesn't
just give us facts. She gives us hands-on op-
portunities. She cares about what you
learn," Hills said.
Besides investing her time in the trip,
Hamilton also is investing her money. She's
eager to make the trip.
"I'm pumped'," Hamilton said.I'Tm going
there to see how they do agriculture educa-
tion, at all different levels from elementary
to high school to college."
Recently, Hamilton was talking to her
students about differences that farmers en-
counter in different parts of the world. She
talked to them about how terrain, equip-
ment, weather, water and soil fertility can
influence what crops are produced and
where they are marketed.
She talked about some of the strengths
and pitfalls of modern machinery and tech-
nology that today's farmers can use.
"I actually went to visit a farm in Iowa.
They have this huge sprayer, and it was on a
pilot," Hamilton said."Basically, they use GPS."
By using modern technology, farmers
can fully utilize the space they have, can re-
duce manual labor, and can use less fuel,
she said.

.n enjoys sharing her knowledge of agriculture
)arts of the world with her students at Pasco
. She plans to get an up-close look at agricul-
h Korea this summer through an overseas
am.

But there can be a downside.
"There was a lot of rain this past year, so
part of the field had fallen down into the
river, Hamilton said."The tractor was on au-
topilot and it didn't account for that terrain
washing into the river, so he (the farmer)
ended up flipping his brand-new sprayer."
The farmer went into the river with it,
and it turns out that it's not so simple to
shut down the computer system, she said.
There's a lot of debate in the United States
and internationally about the benefits and
risks of new technology, she said.
Hamilton also talked with the students
about the economics of agriculture and the
rules of supply and demand. If there's a
high supply and a low demand, prices drop,
she told them.
Courtney Nathe, 17, said she hopes
Hamilton will create a presentation that the
teacher can share with students when she
returns.
"I definitely think it's a good opportunity
for her, just to see what it's like in an inter-
national market," Nathe said.
She also thinks Hamilton is a worthy
candidate for the program and will be able
to convey what she learns to her students.
"She makes class interesting. She com-
municates well with teenagers," Nathe.
"She's young enough that she does under-
stand (teenagers), so it makes the class a
little bit more interesting and we learn."

Group says pay raises for public

lawyers will save taxpayer money


The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report

It's not too often a claim comes around
that spending more money will ultimately
save money.
But advocacy group Florida TaxWatch is
saying just that after a review of income
state attorneys and public defenders receive
in the state. Their findings revealed that
starting pay for those positions in the state
are well below the national average, and are
among the lowest in the country
Because of that, there are high turnover
rates in both fields, which cause delays in
the courts and far more taxpayer-funded in-
vestment to train new employees
- estimated at more than $15 million a
year.
"If Florida expects our criminal justice
system to deliver timely and effective jus-
tice, we must wisely invest in those who are
responsible for carrying it out," said Dominic
Calabro, president and chief executive of
Florida TaxWatch, in a release."Paying our as-
sistant state attorneys and assistant public
defenders closer to the rest of the nation
will ensure our tax dollars are not wasted
on high turnover costs and lower productiv-


ity, and that our criminal justice system is in
the best hands our state can find."
Pay shortages for state attorneys and
public defenders range from $30,000 to
$50,000 in the first three years of employ-
ment, which creates turnover rates that
exceed 20 percent, the group said. Because
the job duties are extensive and the de-
mands difficult, it costs taxpayers more to
recruit and retrain replacements than it
would to just increase their salaries in the
first place.
For example, if pay raises were given to
increase starting salary to $50,000 for attor-
neys in those positions, it would only cost
$5.2 million annually. If that higher pay cut
turnover in half, it would actually save tax-
payers $5 million, group leaders said.
Prosecutors and public defenders often
incur sizable debt to complete law school,
and must pass the Florida Bar examination
before being eligible for appointment.Yet,
their starting wages are typically around
$41,700 a year, which is $20,000 less than
the average starting annual salary or prose-
cutors and public defenders in states with
comparable crime.

Carroll repeats as state pole vault champ


By Michael Murillo
mmurillo@lakerlutznews. corn

When you're an athlete in your junior
year of high school, there are few titles bet-
ter than"state champion."
But "two-time state champion" is one of
them.
Land 0' Lakes resident Nikki Carroll
earned that designation by claiming her sec-
ond straight Class 2A pole vaulting title
earlier this month at the state meet, on the
University of North Florida campus in
Jacksonville. She cleared an even 12 feet to
best her closest competition by six inches.
"It feels amazing doing it twice," Carroll
said. "I really wanted to win it again and I
knew that a lot of people were expecting
me to win. It was definitely my goal to win
again and to jump 12 feet."
That mark a full foot better than last
year's winning height not only gave the
Tampa Catholic High School junior a second
state title, but a new personal best as well.
While it was the perfect ending to anoth-
er year of track and field for Carroll, it didn't
happen under perfect circumstances. Pole
vaulting, is the kind of competition where
the weather can make or break an ath-
lete's day. Since participants are using a long
pole to propel themselves above and be-
yond a set bar, anything that makes it harder
to run, set and grip can mean the end of the
competition.
So when it was raining on the day of the
meet, and didn't stop when she had to per-
form, Carroll had every right to be
concerned. But her coach told her that hold-
ing the pole lower makes it less likely that
an athlete will slip, and Carroll naturally has
a lower grip than many pole vaulters.
While it wouldn't help in good weather,
she said the lower grip might have helped
succeed in the rain.
But Carroll had to overcome her own
miscues as well, and the pressure that came
with them.A pole vaulter has three chances


COURTESY OF CAROL CARROLL
Land 0' Lakes resident Nikki Carroll won her second state pole vault title as a junior by
clearing 12 feet her personal best. She's already eyeing a shot at a third title next year.


to clear each height. After the third miss,
they're out of the competition and, in
this case, the running for the state title.
Twice in Jacksonville, Carroll found her-
self down to her last try.


I was on my third attempt at 10 feet, 6
inches and at 11 feet, so that definitely
freaked me out a little bit because I was al-
most out,"' she said.
But Carroll was able to stay focused,


keep her grip and clear the hurdle both
times to stay alive in the competition and
eventually claim the title.
Successfully clearing a certain height and
being successful at pole vaulting in general
is harder than it looks, Carroll said. On televi-
sion, such as during the Olympic Games, the
athletes make it look easy. But it takes a lot
of training and practice to get it right.
As a state champion, Carroll definitely
puts in the time to be the best. She does
gymnastics every day (a sport she's been
doing for several years) except Sundays, and
said the skills she hones at those practices
are a natural fit with pole vaulting.
But Sundays aren't a day of rest. She trav-
els across the state to Melbourne, where she
practices at Pole Vault City to stay prepared
for the actual competitions.
Bobby Haeck, co-owner and head in-
structor of Pole Vault City, said Carroll's skills
give her an immediate advantage over the
competition.
"It's speed and tremendous gymnastics,"
he said. "If you put those two things togeth-
er, you get a really good pole vaulter."
Height also can be important for an ath-
lete, he said. While Carroll isn't tall, her
quickness and ability to clear the bar more
than compensates for a lack of height.
Haeck, who has trained pole vaulters for
nearly 15 years, was there to see Carroll de-
fend her title, and he was impressed with
her ability to succeed in the rain and convert
her third attempts. He believes she has a
bright future continuing the sport in college.
Carroll said she'd like to continue pole
vaulting after she graduates high school, and
will pursue a pre-med course load in college
in order to become a doctor. But before any
of that happens, she still has her senior year
ahead of her. And that means another
chance to defend her title.
"Not a lot of people can win it back-to-
back, and then even less can win it three
times," she said."I'm definitely going to go
for three."

BURGESS QUALIFIES FOR
PRIMARY, EARNS ENDORSEMENT
Republican state House candidate Danny
Burgess has officially qualified for the up-
coming House District 38 primary after his
campaign collected enough signatures
through the petition process.
The qualifying came just days before
Burgess received an endorsement from the
man he's trying to replace in Tallahassee,
state Rep.WillWeatherford, R-Wesley Chapel.
"From serving as the mayor of
Zephyrhills to serving in the U.S. Army
Reserve, Danny has a distinguished record
of public service," Weatherford said, in a
statement. "Danny possesses the courage of
his conservative convictions coupled with a
temperament that enables him to work and
find common ground."
Burgess faces Minnie Diaz in the
Republican primary inAugust, with the win-
ner set to face Democrat Beverly Ledbetter in
November, assuming no one else files to run.

CONGRESSIONAL
CANDIDATES QUALIFY
U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, is offi-
cially defending his Congressional seat
against former television reporter Alan Cohn
after both wrote checks to qualify for the
November election.
Both candidates chose to spend a little
more than $10,000 each from their cam-
paign coffers to qualify, instead of collecting
signatures like U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm
Harbor. Bilirakis will return to Congress un-

paign official Wednesday.

this election cycle, with Cynthia Armstrong
the lone candidate for her District 3 seat,
and Marc Yacht challenging Steve Luikart for
his district on the west side of the county.

raising $22,000. He originally won the seat
in 2006, beating Cathi Compton andWillie
Broner Jr., out-raising both $112,000 to

There have been so many changes in how dentistry is practiced since we opened our
dental office 25 years ago in Land 0' Lakes. 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.

Q Do we have fluoridated water in Florida? How much is in the water?

A It depends on where you live. In Florida, about 78% of our residents who have public
water systems do. I i, I .... I County included. Pasco County does not fluoridate its pub-
lic water. If you have a well system for your drinking water it is possible you may have naturally
. ...... I1..11 I. in your water, the only way to know if you do and how much is by having it
tested. I i, I I.. -. County's public water system has 0.7 :,, 11, . per liter of fluoride in their
water. This is the standard recommended by the U.S. Public Health Service. The highest allowed
in public water is 4.0 :.. 11, ... per liter, and is set by the EPA. Research has shown that fluoride
safely and effectively reduces decay in children and adults when used appropriately. Remember, if
your main source of fluid intake is from bottled water, juices or other beverages not produced in
your county the fluoride content is unknown. Just because you live in a county with fluoridated
public water does not mean you are automatically ... ; ;, i. benefits, you have to drink it.
Dietary fluoride supplements are available only by prescription and are intended for use by chil-
dren ages 6 months to 16 years living in nonfluoridated areas.

microloan program for his franchise of the
Little Greek Restaurant.

cessful business operators. Proceeds can be
used for working capital, inventory, supplies,
furniture, fixtures, and machinery and equip-
ment. However, it cannot be used to purchase
real estate or pay down existing debt.

Girl Power found

at local hair salon


The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report
It's still a pretty new program,
but one local business didn't
waste any time taking part in the
Junior League of Tampa's Girl
Power project.
J. Joseph Salon & Spa on Land
0' Lakes Blvd., recently provided
beauty tips and did makeovers on
15 girls from Joshua House. The
team there volunteered their time
and services not only providing
new hair styles, but also provided
tips on how to take care of their
hair, skin and nails, as well as per-
sonal hygiene.
J. Joseph provided a relaxed
event to give the girls an opportu-
nity to be pampered and feel good
about themselves, according to a
release. The salon's goal was to
help the girls realize their poten-
tial, and the opportunities available
to them in the beauty industry


Each girl received a gift bag
containing hair products from
Pureology, as well as personal den-
tal hygiene products donated by
Bernier Dental of Land 0' Lakes.
The goal of the Girl Power proj-
ect is to promote literacy,
scholarship, nutrition and positive
self-image to young women in fos-
ter care.
Joshua House is part of
Children's Home Society of
Florida, which provides a home for
children who need it. The Gulf
Coast region of the organization,
which includes the Lutz-based
Joshua House, helps more than
1,500 children and families, ac-
cording to the group's website.
For information on how to con-
tribute to the organization, visit
CHSFl.org.
J.Joseph Salon & Spa is located
at 5132 Land O'Lakes Blvd., Suite
