Dale Mabry Hwy Ste 101 Lutz, FL (Corner of Sunlake & Dale Mabry) "I Will Aggressively Fight To Protect Your Legal Rights" THANK YOU! @richardcorcoran HONORED TO SERVE PROUD TO FIGHT Paid by Richard Corcoran, Republican, for State Representative. By Michael Murillo The doctor is in. Cindy Perkins, a chiropractor who lives and works in Lutz, won the annual Lutz Guv'na race, a campaign for the ceremonial title where all the money raised goes to local organizations. Perkins claimed the Guv'na sash by raising the most money during her campaign. "I was very excited, and I still am. I was very shocked, actually," said Perkins, owner of Back in Health Wellness Center on North Dale Mabry Highway in Lutz. Her campaign win was no landslide victory, however. According to Eleanor Cecil, a member of the Lutz Civic Association, the race went down to the wire. "It was very close. I really think it was the closest we've ever had," she said. In a campaign season where the five candidates raised almost $9,500, Perkins edged "Papa" Jay Muffly by less than $10. The totals were counted multiple times to ensure they were correct. The funds raised by all the candidates will be distributed to local organizations. In the past, recipients have included Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts, Friends of the Lutz Branch Library, the Old Lutz School, the Civil Air Patrol, and the Lutz Patriots. Between 15 and 20 different groups will receive grants from the Guv'na race in a typical year. Cecil, who has been involved with the race for about 13 years, said the money is only part of what makes the Lutz Guv'na race special. The entire event is supposed to be fun, and the candidates are expected to Mad voters could affect turnout this November By Michael Hinman There's one question Susan MacManus gets more than any other as we head into a contentious election season. And despite her long and impressive credentials as a political scientist, even she can't answer it. Who will occupy the governor's desk after November? Will Rick Scott stay put? Will Charlie Crist return as a new man? Or is it time for Nan Rich to take over? "Who is going to win the governor's race? I don't know yet," MacManus, a Land O' Lakes native, told the Republican Club of Central Pasco on June 25. "And neither do you." Two things for certain are that this could not only be the most expensive governor's race in history, but also the most negative. Political groups on both sides already have launched mud-slinging ads against each other, Scott taking hits for the Medicare scandal that rocked his former company in the 1990s, and Crist for raising taxes and fees during the economic downturn. Want a good look at what's to come? One only has to look back to the recent special Congressional election in Pinellas County between Democrat Alex Sink and Republican David Jolly, MacManus said. "The mood of the public is a very angry mood," the University of South Florida professor said. "They are very disappointed in PHOTOS COURTESY OF SUZIN CARR Outgoing Guv'na Suzin Carr, left, turns over the key to Lutz' to new Guv'na Cindy Perkins. As a group, the five candidates for the race raised around $9,500 for local organizations.

Besides providing services to local customers, the owner of The Optical Shop and Showroom at 24444 State Road 54 in Lutz, also volunteers his skills to Living in Faith Ministry. Rev. Russ Montgomery, president of Living in Faith Ministry, also is an optician. He met Chaney in 2006 through Professional Opticians of Florida. Montgomery said Living in Faith began after he had visited Cuba in the mid-1990s and was handed some eyeglass prescriptions and asked if he could help. "So, I went and paid full retail price to have the glasses made, and I said, Lord, if this is what you want me to do, make it affordable,'" he said. "About six phone calls later, I was in touch with an optician up in Maryland and we started making glasses through him." During the past two decades, the ministry has branched into Haiti and has conducted eye exams and distributed more than 20,000 B.C.

H AWLEY D ENTAL A SSOCIATES 813-948-BITE (2483) 21752 SR 54 Land O' Lakes/Lutz D ENTAL B ITES There have been so many changes in how dentistry is practiced since we opened our dental office 25 years ago in Land O' 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. What should I do if I knock a tooth out? With proper emergency treatment, a permanent tooth that has been knocked out of its socket can be successfully replanted and last for years. The sooner the tooth is replaced, the greater the likelihood it will survive. Ideally get to your dentist within 30 minutes. Find the tooth; do NOT handle it by the root. If it is dirty gently rinse the tooth in cool water, do NOT scrub or use soap. Do not wrap in tissue or attempt to dry off. Replace it in the socket if possible, holding it in with your finger or light biting pressure. If the tooth cannot be reinserted in the socket, place it in the cheek. Placing the tooth in milk is recommended if it cannot be left in the mouth. Do not allow tooth to dry out. Arrange to get to your dentist as soon as possible.

Learning more about the Moore you know B ob Moore is the kind of guy that likes to stay out of the way in the Paradise Lakes home he shares with wife Nancy. He paints, he sculpts. He collects stamps. And he makes regular trips back home to Canada to see his family. But Moore, however, has had a tough time staying out of the way of history. He served 39 years with the Canadian armed forces, signing up when he was just 17 just a few years after World War II. And along the way he ensured one Olympic Games in Montreal was properly supplied, and he designed a coat of arms for a military school that was personally signed off by Queen Elizabeth II. Oh, and he won the Nobel Peace prize, too. "I was part of one of the first peacekeeping operations in history," Moore said, not minding at all that he's shared this story many times before. "We were told that we would join a force of U.N. soldiers three days before Christmas. I barely had time to spend the holidays with my family." It was 1956, and Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser had taken control of the Suez Canal, a 120-mile artificial waterway that allows ships to travel between Europe and eastern Asia without having to sail around Africa. The United Kingdom and France didn't take the naturalization well, since they had a 100-year lease, and they joined forces with Israel to try and take back the waterway. The United Nations knew something had to be done to prevent all-out war in the Middle East. So it pulled together military troops from nations that weren't directly involved in the conflict, like Canada, and sent them in to help calm the situation down. "We got to Halifax, and we boarded the HMCS Magnificent," Moore said. "It was an aircraft carrier, but there was no aircraft for this voyage. Instead, the deck was strewn with all this equipment, and about 6,000 soldiers from 11 different countries." When the Magnificent arrived at the Suez Canal, Moore said he was shocked at what soldiers found. Nasser had blocked access to the canal by sinking a large number of ships at the entrance. "I got there and looked from the deck of the aircraft carrier, and counted 36 sunken ships," Moore said. He was part of a contingent of troops that made their way across the Sinai Desert, following retreating Israeli forces. The trip was hard through the desert, especially since Israel was destroying roads and buildings on its way back. The Israelis spared an old British air force base, which Moore camped out in for some time. It was riddled with bullet holes, and did not have much of a roof. At night, it would get cold, so they would use debris from the building to keep the fire going. "When we ran out of wood there, we ended up burning the chairs we were sitting in," Moore said. In 1988, the Norwegian Nobel Committee decided to give its Peace Prize to U.N. Peacekeeping forces. As part of that initial force, Moore received a small medallion celebrating the honor, which was later pinned to him in a ceremony that included Pasco County commissioner Pat Mulieri. In his time traveling around the world, Moore picked up five languages, including Swahili, although he still doesn't feel completely comfortable with French. He raised two sons on his own after his first wife died. Dwayne became a scientist and is now part owner of an environmental company in Maine, while Michael followed his father into the military, and is still there today. Moore retired in 1991 when he was 57, and almost immediately found a home in Pasco County. "I was always a nudist, and I was looking for some place where people lived who believed in the same," Moore said. He met Nancy while visiting Paradise Lakes from his then New Port Richey home, and they settled into their own condo at Paradise Lakes in 1998. Moore may have accomplished a lot in his life, but he's even prouder of what his children and grandchildren have accomplished, including one who just graduated from college. "You're nothing without education," Moore said. "You got to have it, or you'll be out there digging ditches and painting buildings. I mean, there's nothing wrong with being a tradesman if that's what you want to do, but it shouldn't be what you have to do." He doesn't actively sell his artwork, but if people want it, he's willing to hear a price. Moore comes from a family with a strong artistic background; many of his siblings are artists, as well. In fact, a portrait painted by his brother featuring his mother and father, that had been on public display for years in Canada, hangs in his front foyer. "Doing art was just a no-brainer for me," he said. "It's a way to express myself, and to share the beauty of the world with the world." MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Bob Moore, who retired to Paradise Lakes years ago, shows off a coat of arms he designed for the Regional Cadet Instructor School in Ontario, where he was a commander. This particular copy was signed off and approved by Queen Elizabeth II. Getting to know You By Michael Hinman Getting to know Bob Moore Who was the world's most influential military commander? Alexander the Great was one of the most successful and innovative military leaders of our time. His strategies always surprised his opponents, especially where he was out-numbered and out-gunned. What song will make you turn up the radio? Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue," or really anything from George Gershwin. But opera always moves me to tears, where I have them splashing down my face. If you could sit anyone in history for a portrait, who would you pick? Charles Darwin, because he created an area of science that actually answered all kinds of questions that people never could figure out before.

He replaces Bob Clifford, TBARTA's first executive director, who resigned to join the engineering firm Parsons Brinckerhoff, according to a release. Skelton has a lengthy career in transportation planning and programs, including serving as secretary of the District 7 office for the Florida Department of Transportation for seven years, ending in 2012. During that time, he was on the board of directors for TBARTA as an "ex officio" member, and was instrumental in providing support for the development of TBARTA's master transportation plan. He currently is vice president of H.W. Lochner, where he provides transportation engineering services for the Tampa Bay region and Central Florida. TBARTA was created in 2007 by the Legislature to plan and develop a multimodal transportation system that will connect the second counties of the Tampa Bay region Pasco, Hillsborough, Hernando, Citrus, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota.

PAGE 5 813-949-4445 Here's Why Customers Recommend Us To Neighbors, Family and Friends Who is the best A/C manufacturer? Surprising to many, the top 20 brands are made by just eight manufacturers. There is almost no difference in quality and performance between same-level units made by Carrier, Trane, Rheem, Lennox, Amana, Bryant or Goodman. All units come in a box with a compressor, coil and condenser. It's the installation team who assembles the unit at your home who makes the difference. HVAC professionals agree that proper installation and maintenance are more important to the performance of an A/C system, than the unit itself. 100% Satisfaction Guarantee* We guarantee 100% satisfaction with equipment operations. We will correct any problem within the first 180 days of installation, and if you are still not satisfied, will remove the system and refund your money in full. *applies to elite systems only Rebates We offer great incentives with manufacturers, power companies and Cornerstone, to save you as much money as possible.

Her owners cannot take her for a walk without someone giving her goo-goo eyes, and she eats all the attention up. But what makes her super special is her feisty spirit and boldness. Lucy may look like a foo foo lap dog, but she is anything but. She loves hiking in the woods, chasing squirrels, protecting the house from lizards, jumping in the oceans, and playing in rain puddles.

During its annual conference July 11 in Coral Gables, the association awarded The Laker news editor Michael Hinman with two first place prizes in local government reporting and general news. The local government award was based on a series of stories in 2013 about the nowcancelled elevated toll road project that had been planned over a 33-mile stretch between Zephyrhills and New Port Richey along the State Road 54/56 corridor. The general news award was based on coverage of a flood insurance town hall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis last December. The Laker competed in the top circulation category in the state, against similar weeklies with circulation of 15,000 or more "Community newspapers are more important than ever before, because many times they are the only place you will find the stories important to you," said Diane Kortus, publisher of The Laker. "Our reporters deliver those stories each week, and we're proud to get this recognition at a statewide level." Judges called Hinman's coverage of the elevated toll road a "well-researched series of articles" that "looked at pitfalls of similar projects, and presented the pros and cons of the road." In reporting about a town hall meeting hosted by Bilirakis about rising flood insurance rates, judges said Hinman had a "nice use of observation to capture the mood at the meeting, Groans, interruptions, occasional applause." Judges also noted Hinman's "concise explanation of the impact of the Reform Act." The Florida Press Association is a statewide organization that promotes weekly and daily newspapers. Its annual Better Weekly Newspaper Contest recognizes strong reporting, photography, online work and graphical artwork among all its member newspapers in Florida. Since 2011, The Laker/Lutz News has won 20 awards from the Florida Press Association, reflecting its continued dedication to community news. The Laker takes two awards at statewide conference

The L AKER / Lutz N EWS "Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo has worked with Community News Publications for years to promote special events, new exhibits/attractions and our summer camps. We find that advertising to their loyal family readership in the Land O' Lakes and Lutz area to be a valuable part of our marketing mix." Jason Davis Marketing Manager Tampa's Lowry Park Zoo, 813-935-8552 July 16, 2014 10 PUBLISHER'S COLUMN B y D i ane Kortu s Publisher In the past few months I have used my column to boast about our recent industry audit, which reports that our newspapers have more readers than ever before. Today I want to tell you why that is. But first, a brief recap. According to this statistically valid research, The Laker/Lutz News is read by 79 percent of households in Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills or more than 64,000 people every week. This is a readership increase of 10 percentage points in the past five years an achievement we are quite proud of, especially when considering most newspapers are reporting fewer readers, reducing frequency, shrinking in size, or being discontinued altogether. So, what are we doing different here at The Laker/Lutz News to buck those downward trends? It comes down to three things. 1. In our audit, we added questions that asked readers what types of news and stories they wanted to read in their community paper. 2. We accepted the survey results as fact and began focusing more on topics readers ranked as most important. 3. We hired additional professional journalists who are experienced reporters, excellent writers and passionate about community journalism. It's this third element I want to write about today. After I became publisher in 2009, it took me a while to learn the importance of hiring the best reporters that I could find. I learned nothing is more important than experience and credibility when it comes to giving readers well-written, relevant stories that will engage them and keep them reading the paper. Good writing and fair reporting builds readership and loyalty because readers know they can trust what they read in our papers because our stories are accurate, balanced and relevant to their interests. Our journalists were accomplished writers and editors long before they joined The Laker/Lutz News. They know how to identify stories about interesting people and groups, how to pick through public meeting agendas to find stories buried between government hype, and perhaps most importantly, they know how to write well. Frankly, it is a bit unusual for a newspaper our size to have such accomplished journalists. So let me tell you a little about our team, beginning with Michael Hinman. Michael joined us last year as news editor. He has helped us add more serious hard and breaking news to our mix, and has brought daily news postings to our website. His background includes five years writing for community sections of The Tampa Tribune, including editor of the Temple Terrace News before it was shuttered. More recently, Michael was a real estate reporter at the Tampa Bay Business Journal. He first started covering Pasco County in 1997 when he was hired as a reporter for the Zephyrhills News, and later became its editor. The quality of his work received recognition over the weekend in Coral Gables, where Michael picked up two prestigious statewide journalism awards from the Florida Press Association. He received first place in best local government coverage for his outstanding coverage of the proposed elevated toll road along the State Road 54/56 corridor. He also took top honors in general news about a town hall last year hosted by U.S. Rep Gus Bilirakis, bringing to light major problems with flood insurance in our county. Next is Community Editor B.C. Manion, whose byline has graced our pages for four years. She is our most experienced journalist, coming to us after 23 years with The Tampa Tribune, where she covered everything from city government to schools to regional planning. But her love is writing about interesting people, organizations and places, and that's mostly what she does for us. B.C. has been the leader of our editorial team as we've worked hard to improve the quality and depth of our stories. B.C has received 11 awards from Florida Press Association while on our staff, and is one of the most respected journalists in Tampa Bay. Michael Murillo joined us as a freelance writer last summer. We liked his work so much that he became an employee in the fall, writing most of our sports stories and also feature stories about people and things to do. Michael also wrote editorials for the Tribune and spent many years as a reporter for local community newspapers. His wacky sense of humor makes him fun to work with, and his love for community journalism is contagious. Mary Rathman is the reason our pages rarely have a grammatical mistake or typo. She scours our sentences, looking for any misplaced comma or misspelled word. She has a sign on her desk that says, "I am silently correcting your grammar," and indeed, she is. Besides proofing our work, Mary compiles three columns that provide useful information for our readers: What's Happening, Health Notes and Chalk Talk. Mary is a respected and well-liked employee, who started working here more than 10 years ago. She also has served the company in other roles before using her talents to assist our editorial team. While our editorial team is dedicated to delivering a newspaper and website that our readers can turn to for pertinent information and lively stories, we know that much of our best work begins with ideas we get from readers like you. If you have an idea you'd like to share, please call (813) 909-2800, or email us at COURTESY OF KAREL ORTIZ-TAVAREZ Mi chael H i n m an, new s ed i tor of The Laker/Lutz New s s how s the two troph i e s he won for f i r s t place f i n is he s at the Flor i da Pre ss A ss oc i at i on B etter Weekly New s paper Conte s t i n Coral Gable s la s t week.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE Dr. Rick Robinson has joined Dr. David Scamard as the second board certified optometric physician at The Eye Care Professionals on SR 54 in Lutz. Drs. Robinson and Scamard have been friends since college when both were students at Nova Southeastern Optometry School in Ft. Lauderdale. They graduated in 1999 and each has had successful careers in private practice. Dr. Robinson has practiced at locations in Naples, Florida and Tuscan, Arizona, and Dr. Scamard in Tampa and Lutz. "Working together here in Lutz is ideal because our expertise complements each other especially well," said Dr. Robinson. "I specialize in contact lenses and Dr. Scamard is excellent providing care for the entire family." With Dr. Robinson joining the practice, The Eye Care Professionals is now open every day except Sunday, including extended evening hours. "We want people to know we're always here for them at a time that's most convenient for them," said Dr. Scamard. "Plus, we're available 24/7 in case of an emergency. The Eye Care Professionals has a beautiful showroom displaying an extensive collection of frames, including trendy designer styles such as Coach, Prada, Ray Ban, Gucci and Giorgio Armani. "Because we are authorized dealers, our selection of designer frames is one of the largest in the area," said Dr. Robinson. "We believe that when you put on glasses, it's like putting on jewelry. Your frames are an essential part of your overall fashion statement. We have the most fashionable looks from the hottest designers in the world." The Eye Care Professionals is one of a few optical labs in the area with that does eyeglass repairs and modifications. This includes soldering joints, temple repair or replacement and regular maintenance. It also sells accessories such as cases, cords and cleaning solutions. Even more important than its full service capabilities is its staff commitment to treat every patient as if they were family. "We serve patients as young as six months to the very elderly and diagnose and treat many diseases," said Dr. Scamard. "There are many families where we are taking care of the vision needs of three generations." The Eye Care Professionals is easy to find, located just off SR 54 on Oak Grove Boulevard, directly across from the Ferman automotive dealership.

And this already is the most nasty race known to humankind, and not just to Florida." But it doesn't have to be all negative, MacManus said. Two ads that stood out over the last several months were Sink appearing with her father and Scott with his grandchild. Both resonated well with voters, but barely get a glance in the sea of negativity. "A couple nice ads are very refreshing, but then the next ones after that are slash and burn again," MacManus said. The biggest problem facing politics is money not directly raised by a candidate's campaign. Both Sink and Jolly had plenty of spending beyond their campaigns, setting a tone that neither of them felt represented them. The same already is happening between Crist and Scott as the voice of outside money gets louder and louder. With the governor's race too close to call, those wanting to peer into the future might have to look at other factors on the ballot, especially ones that might draw people from a certain party. MacManus starts and stops with the three proposed state constitutional amendments. The first one, which MacManus said should appeal to both Democrats and Republicans, would commit 33 percent of net revenues from existing excise taxes to the Land Acquisition Trust Fund conservation program. The second would legalize marijuana in Florida for medicinal purposes. The third is one that could be a warning bell for Democrats: It would allow a governor to make judicial appointments before a judge's term is up. That would allow an outgoing governor to decide seats in the judiciary that would affect the next governor. "Every editorial board in the state is going to be against that," MacManus said. One amendment that may not be as big of an advantage for Democrats is medicinal marijuana. The popularity of that amendment has started to wane in recent months, and opposition groups are raising millions of dollars to combat it, MacManus said. That means the push to get out the vote on that measure will likely split between both parties, although it's still unclear how many more college students might head to the polls because of it. "Guess where they got all the signatures to get that on the ballot to begin with?" MacManus said. "It was every college campus in the state. You couldn't walk across out campus without being interrupted by someone passing a petition." Outside of that, however, MacManus still feels turnout will be a big problem in November. A drop in Pasco County voters in the presidential election of 2012 may have cost Mitt Romney the White House, she added. The Tampa Bay media market remains an important one to all parties, MacManus said. It's already split evenly between Republicans and Democrats with 37 percent each, with the remaining going to the ever-growing number of independent voters. Florida will be on the national stage for the mid-term elections, drawing in big names like the Clintons and Obamas to help generate turnout for Democrats. But the GOP has some weapons as well, MacManus said. "If the Republicans can split the women vote and the independent vote, they can win the statewide races," she said. "Those are key." VOTERS from page 1 pairs of eyeglasses. The ministry also tests for glaucoma and arranges cataract surgeries to be done by volunteer American-trained ophthalmologists. Montgomery trained so he could conduct eye exams and do glaucoma testing. "When my friend in Maryland passed away, we used few other people (to make glasses), but our volume was too high for them," he said. "And then I met Charley, and he's been a huge blessing." When Chaney found out what Montgomery was doing, he got involved. "It seemed worthwhile," Chaney said. "When you hear the stories about how people can't afford glasses, and you hear that they are sometimes led in by their arms. They're 50 years old and they haven't had an eye exam in their whole lives. Some of these people literally cannot see their hand in front of their face." The Lutz optician does the lab work, fabricating glasses from the orders Montgomery delivers. "Out of all of the optical shops in the (Tampa) Bay area, this is the only one that's helped us consistently," Montgomery said. "We had one in Pinellas County that maybe made 20 glasses and they said, That's it.' A couple of other ones might make 10 or 12 and that's it." But Chaney will stay after hours to work on the ministry's glasses, Montgomery added. Chaney's experience and technical skills enable him to resolve difficult cases. The ministry uses frames that are donated by various distributors, Montgomery said, noting, "we'll get frames with price tags on them anywhere from $200 to $500." The ministry sells its eyeglasses in Haiti for $30 a pair, but will provide eyeglasses for free when someone simply has no means of paying, Montgomery said. "We're trying to give them something that's functional and practical at a reasonable price," Chaney said. The need for vision assistance is enormous, Montgomery said. "We're seeing people who have extremely strong prescriptions. We're getting a lot of people in that are 20/200," he said, compared to normal vision, which is 20/20. "We have people in Haiti that have not seen the night stars for years. With their glasses, they can see the beauty," Montgomery said. "We're a mile away from a mountain down there. We've got people who haven't seen the mountain for years." Montgomery plans to travel to the mountains of Haiti, at 5,300 feet, specifically searching for people who have mature cataracts. "We know they're there. They're probably stuck in their homes," he said. "They can't get out. Cataract surgery is a 20-minute surgery and it gives them new life." He believes Living in Faith is a ministry that offers people a chance to see God's love in action. "In the book of John, it talks about the blind man," Montgomery said. "He's been blind since birth. The Pharisees were asking, Whose sin was it, the man or the parents?' "Jesus said, Neither, but his condition was such that when he was healed, the people would see the hand of God at work," Montgomery said. VISION from page 1 enjoy themselves while they work for the title. And from what she saw, all five candidates Perkins, Muffly, Liane Caruso, Jerome Smalls and Susan Gulash did just that. "I went to many of their events and I really think they had a good time with it, and they put in a lot of effort," Cecil said. She noted they also worked well as a group, hosting joint events to raise money and supporting each other throughout the race. Perkins said she enjoyed meeting the candidates she didn't know, and making stronger friendships with the ones she had already met. Her campaign raised more than $4,000 of the total, and said the money brought in shows the positive impact of the campaign on the community. "To come close to raising $10,000 that's all going to go back to different local schools and other nonprofits and charities, that's fantastic," Perkins said. "It really shows how a few people can kind of pull a community together." Even though the title has been passed, Cecil said that the previous Guv'na left some pretty big shoes to fill. Suzin Carr, who has been Guv'na twice, was very active in the role and even helped recruit the new batch of candidates to replace her. "She did more than just be Guv'na. She helped us out a lot and took the lead in a lot of things," Cecil said. "She's really a phenomenal lady." Perkins not only is ready to fulfill her traditional Guv'na duties, such as attending Lutz events, she's taken Carr's lead and started the recruitment process for the next batch of candidates. "I've already started trying to talk some people into doing it next year," she said. Businesses or organizations in the Lutz community are welcome to apply for a grant as long as they are designated as a nonprofit and are not affiliated with a religious organization. For more information on how to apply, e-mail Eleanor Cecil at GUV'NA from page 1 Cindy Perkins was declared the new Lutz Guv'na on July 4 at the community's Independence Day celebration. Help Living in Faith There are different ways to help Living in Faith with its vision ministry. The Optical Shop and Showroom, 2444 State Road 54 in Lutz, is collecting used DVDs and videotapes to sell in its shop. All proceeds will benefit Living in Faith. The ministry also welcomes the help of ophthalmologists who wish to volunteer their services. Monetary donations are helpful, too. For more information about how to help, call the Rev. Russ Montgomery at (813) 343-0417.

The scent of these treats permeates the building as the contest's judges and former Lutz Guv'na Suzin Carr bite into the delicious array of desserts. That was the scene on the Fourth of July as 44 entries competed in the annual cake and pie contest during the community's Independence Day celebration. This year, the auction for the culinary delights raised $1,100 more than in recent years, said contest coordinator Marilyn Wannamaker. "I think the contest this year was a success," Wannamaker said. Danny Neeley, winner of the men's only category in the adult division, baked a pineapple upside down cake to honor his father. Wannamaker didn't sample any of the sweets, but she had her eye on a couple. "I would've wanted to take a bite out of the chocolate cake or Tracy Gaschler's apple pie," Wannamaker said. She was impressed by the detail of some of the entries. Cate Hancock used white Kit Kats, ribbons and sparklers to create an effect that captured the most patriotic category in the youth division. She also was the Guv'na's and judge's favorite. Wannamaker believes a change this year to create a new category to split younger kids from older kids gave the younger kids a better chance to capture a ribbon. Wannamaker, who plans to step down from her role as contest coordinator, said she enjoyed this year's competition. "I was very honored to have hosted the contest this year," she said. But Wannamaker hinted that while she may be stepping away for now, it might not be forever. Pies, cakes raise $1,100 for local charities And the winners are Adult Division Debbie May, best decorated Wilma Lewis, most patriotic Shirley Simmons, best tasting Danny Neeley, men's only Tracy Gaschler, best pie tasting Sharon Brant, Guv'na's favorite Wilma Lewis, judge's favorite Youth Division Abigail Brazier, best decorated Catelyn Payne, best tasting Cate Hancock, Guv'na's favorite, judge's favorite, most patriotic Children's Division Sarah Robison, best decorated, judge's favorite Alexander Pramsberger, most patriotic Lucy Bazin, best tasting FILE PHOTO This pie, baked by Tracy Gaschler, is a 5pound apple pie from last year's Centennial celebration in Lutz.

But when it comes to building major roads, time isn't always on your side. Florida Department of Transportation District 7 secretary Paul Steinman announced to Pasco County commissioners last week that the Federal Highway Administration has approved a new interchange that will connect Interstate 75 with Overpass Road. The project will add yet another entry into the county in an area where Wesley Chapel District Park already exists and a new high school is planned, and could even alleviate current and future congestion on State Road 52 to the north, and State Road 54 to the south. "The exciting part of that is that it does open up the east side of the county for you once it gets developed," Steinman said at the meeting. The Overpass Road interchange will provide additional access in the Wesley Chapel area as well as East Pasco County, where several developments have been approved, or are in various stages of planning or construction, such as Pasadena Hills. That is a 22,000-acre project that will create more than a dozen high-density villages that could help the area manage growth for that region over the next few decades. To build the interchange, that portion of Overpass Road near I-75 will be expanded to four lanes with the possibility of expanding into six in the future. Eventually, the plans are to extend Overpass to connect Old Pasco Road and U.S. 301 in Zephyrhills. The cost for the project will be more than $55 million, and while federal money will eventually be available to the county, officials have to show initially they're able to fund the overall work on their own. Funds could come from an expanded gas tax, Penny for Pasco funds, and even mobility fees. "Whether the state or federal government will put in any money, you can't depend on that," county transportation planning manager James Edwards told The Laker last January. But the clock is ticking, county planning and development director Richard Gehring told commissioners. "Whenever you get this finally inked and approved, you have eight years to construct," he said. If the county fails to do that, federal approval of the project is withdrawn, and both the county and the state would have to apply all over again. Population studies have shown the number of people who live in the area Overpass would serve will explode 400 percent to 218,000 people by 2035. Right now, just fewer than 60,000 people live in the area. Capacity on I-75 also will increase through that area from the current 51,000 vehicles daily between State Roads 52 and 54, to 165,800 in 2040. That kind of volume would create traffic nightmares for existing interchanges in San Antonio to the north and Wesley Chapel to the south. It could even back up State Road 56 just north of the Hillsborough County line. The county may have been waiting for months to hear back from Washington, D.C., but plans to improve Overpass Road have been afoot for more than a decade. In 2003, county officials first looked at how the road could be improved between Old Pasco and Fort King roads, without looking at any potential connection with I-75. That changed with a new study in 2006 that gained favorable reviews from FDOT and federal highway officials. Because the interstate is a federal road, any connections to it would have to be approved by the federal government. To show the viability of such a plan, the county produced a project development and environment study and a preliminary interchange justification report, officials said. FILE PHOTO Overpass Road will finally get its connection with Interstate 75, the first step toward what could be Pasco County's new hot spot with sports fields, schools and a massive community that could help fuel growth over the next 50 years.


Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports July 16, 2014 16 By Michael Murillo Seniors might live a less-active lifestyle than they did when they were younger, but Walt Bockmiller thinks they still have time for softball, golf, tennis, bowling and maybe volleyball. If not all of those activities, maybe one or two of them. Bockmiller, a Land O' Lakes resident, started Senior Sports in 2011, and he organizes regular events for older residents that include a wide variety of activities. Whatever people choose to do, there are plenty of benefits in getting out and being active, he said. "It's an opportunity for them to get out and start doing something rather than just being home shopping or watching TV," Bockmiller said. "It gives them an opportunity to meet people in a different kind of environment." Bockmiller began Senior Sports by setting up softball leagues, since many people have some experience with baseball or softball in their youth. That starting point proved extremely popular, and he now has around 90 participants for those games. Counting tennis, bowling and golf, Senior Sports boasts more than 150 participants, and he said that tennis could prove to be the most popular of them all. While softball is designed for men and women ages 60 and older, the other sports don't have an age limit. He said players could be in their 40s through their 80s. The oldest softball player turned 90-years-old last month. At 71 years old himself, Bockmiller might be expected to ease up on his schedule, but it's simply not in his nature. He worked in recreation and leisure services management, and over his 47-year career, Bockmiller organized several activities, both with and without sports themes. While he expected the participants to enjoy Senior Sports, he didn't expect them to have quite as much fun as they're having. He said people are "finding their smile," and area residents who normally didn't get out much are making friends and planning gettogethers off the field or court. Participants often go out to dinner, plan outings to see the Tampa Bay Rays, and even go on cruises together, Bockmiller said. Senior Sports is about sports, naturally, but without a focus on the competitive side. Instead, Bockmiller keeps the focus on having fun, giving out awards that are earned by good sportsmanship instead of athletic skill. Softball might appeal to more physically fit participants, while bowling is available for those who might not have that level of ability. Or, people can simply sign up to play whatever appeals to them. The activities are designed to be inexpensive and occur during various dates and times, allowing more seniors to participate. But whether a person plays every available activity or selects their favorite, or simply wants to meet new people, Bockmiller said they'll come away with some fun memories and good people to share them. "There are a lot of friends that come out of this stuff. Some of my friends in tennis and golf, especially tennis, are friends for life," he said. "There's a commonality that you have, and because of that you have a lot of laughs over the years. It's just a lot of fun." Co-ed slow-pitch softball is played from September through December, and again from mid-January through mid-April. Golf is played on a variety of courses year-round on Wednesdays. Bowling is played year-round in Lutz on Thursdays. Tennis and volleyball are new to the schedule. For more information about Senior Sports, contact Bockmiller at (813) 5278211. Seeking seniors: Sports group offers fun times, friendship MICHAEL MURILLO/STAFF PHOTO Whatever sport a senior might enjoy, Walt Bockmiller probably has something on the schedule for them.
