Community meetings, charity events, volunteer drives if it's something that can help others, Robertson is there. That's part of what called him to run for the Pasco County Commission a chance to make a difference. And that, for him, starts with getting people excited about their local government once again. "The bigger issue is that people are totally disengaged, even to the extent that this campaign we're in, we have to try and explain to people the voting process. People feel that government isn't working for them, and I want to change that." Robertson worked to do that during his years on Lake Bernadette's community development district, becoming a steward for the funds residents there pay for the management of their community, especially when it comes to infrastructure. It's not anything like helping to manage a county with nearly a half-million people but it's a tremendous learning experience. Especially when it comes to sorting through all kinds of needs, and then trying to find the money to help pay for it. "Tax revenue has gone down, and property values have gone down. Hard choices have been made, and are still going to be made," Robertson said. "We have to decide between what we need and what we want, and we need to create a vision of that." There has been a lot of talk over whether to raise taxes at the gas pump by a nickel, or even to increase property taxes to help pay for new road construction. Robertson said he's not too interested in raising taxes, but he's also a realist. "Property taxes have been going down pretty considerably since 2007," he said. "Some are down by about 35 percent. And when you then talk about raising the gas tax a nickel, it kind of puts all of that into perspective." However, the county has to be cautious about how they approach any potential gas tax, Robertson said. While the impact to residents might be minimal, the effect it would have on businesses especially those that purchase large amounts of fuel could be devastating. "The business community side is where you get the unintended consequences," Robertson said. "If you making your living in an area like landscaping, for instance, they are running around and buying gasoline for their equipment. They are not necessarily using the roads." Overall, however, the county needs to focus more on mass transit, to help get people around, and get more cars off the roads. While some areas like the southern tier of Pasco is becoming more urbanized, the bus system is not keeping up in making sure transportation options are in place, Robertson said. "We need to look at what our southern neighbors are doing," Robertson said of Hillsborough and Pinellas counties. "We need to work in concert with them to figure out what's working and what's not, and to make sure that we can connect everyone to all parts of the region." It also means making sure there are good-paying jobs. Robertson has cited statistics he says are from government research that has the average weekly wage in Pasco at $624. Hillsborough and Pinellas pay about $200 more. "Our residents are not in the economic position to be able to afford many of the wonderful things that we want to be able to offer in the county," Robertson said, referring to generating more tax revenue for services. "Yes, we need these additional residences to be built up around the county to help with the tax base, but we also need to have people moving in that are making enough to boost the value of our property here in Pasco." Robertson has hardly raised the most money among the three candidates seeking the Republican nomination for county commission's District 2. However, he knew from the beginning he would be the underdog. "I see myself, at least, as the quintessential grassroots candidate," he said. "The other two guys are politicians, but I present a different look. And you need to be different if you want to stand out in the crowd."

That includes influenza, pertussis otherwise known as whooping cough and measles are just a few of the preventable diseases that still affect children and adults in the country today, the health organization said. "Immunizations are as important today as they were in the age of polio in the 1950s, when the March of Dimes funded the pioneering work that resulted in the vaccine that still is used today against this deadly disease," said Karen Harris, chair of the program services committee for the March of Dimes Florida Chapter, in a release. "Back-to-school season is the time of year when we especially encourage kids to get their shots to protect their health." Even small groups of unimmunized people can quickly spread disease, Harris said. In the United States, both measles and whooping cough are at epidemic rates. Through the 2013-14 school year, the Florida Department of Health says that while seventh-graders are well above state and national goals at just under 97 percent immunized, the same can't be said about kindergarten students and toddlers. Kids first entering school are immunized at a 93.2 percent rate, below the state and national goal of 95 percent, while 2-year-old children were just immunized 87 percent of the time. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says diseases can spread when infected people cough, sneeze or even talk. Children may spread the flu virus for up to three days before they show any symptoms, and for longer than a week after getting sick, putting their classmates at risk of becoming sick, too. The CDC, the March of Dimes and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists all recommend that, in addition to children, all pregnant women and those planning to become pregnant should get an annual flu shot in the fall. The normal biological changes of pregnancy put pregnant women at increased risk of the harmful effects of flu. Recent research suggests that the flu vaccine also may lower a woman's risk of having a stillbirth or miscarriage, according to the release. "The flu vaccine helps protect your body from infection, and this protection is in turn passed on to your baby during pregnancy," Harris said. This year, the March of Dimes continues its work on the Sounds of Pertussis, a national education campaign started in 2009 to help raise awareness about the potential dangers of pertussis and the importance of adult vaccination. March of Dimes continues to fund vaccine research, and to work with international coalitions seeking to improve immunization rates and eliminate preventable diseases that threaten babies and children, the organization said. More information can be found at MarchOfDimes.com. It's that time of year to get immunizations up to date COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY SCHOOLS Dance the summer away There wa s lot s of danc i ng at the recent k i ndergarten ca m p ho s ted by Connerton Ele m entary S chool.

US Hwy 41 Lutz, Florida 33549 813-528-8989 www.NYCPizza1.com having this conversation," said Tompkins, who coordinates the annual International Survivors of Suicide Loss Conference. While Williams' death has received worldwide attention and prolonged media coverage, there have been hundreds of suicides around the country that have occurred since Williams died, Tompkins noted. Up to 39,000 people die by suicide in the United States each year, Tompkins said. That works out to more than 100 people a day. Deaths by suicide tend to raise many questions, Tompkins said. "A lot of the questions that I hear in the aftermath of suicide: Why did they do it? How come we couldn't stop them? Didn't they know that we loved them?'" Tompkins said. "Those are the types of questions that, years later sometimes, people wrestle with." Grief is a common reaction to deaths of all kinds, said Grace Terry, founder of Grief Resolution Resources of Tampa. It's not uncommon, either, for people to feel a certain measure of regret for things they should or shouldn't have done before their loved one passed away. Those regrets can be magnified when the death is by suicide. "I believe that friends and families of those who die by suicide have a particularly difficult grief challenge," Terry said. "No matter what the circumstance or situation, people who have loved ones die by suicide have a crushing sense of guilt." People wonder how someone like Williams who was talented, rich and famous could reach a point where he would end his life. "When someone is incredibly depressed, it doesn't matter how wealthy they are or how much fame they have," Terry said. "Really, none of that matters if someone is clinically depressed." There are ways to help people both those who may be considering suicide and those who are coping with the loss of a loved one through suicide the experts said. Treatment is available, Terry said. And in many cases, those who seek professional help can get better. "Depression can be mild, moderate or severe," Terry said. There are times when it becomes life-threatening and life-ending, she added. If you suspect someone needs help, it's important to respond, Terry said. "Express your concern in a loving way," Terry said. Offer to go with them to see a doctor or attend a support group. Be direct, Westuba said. If you suspect someone is suffering through depression, ask, "Are you suicidal? Are you having suicidal thoughts?" Then help them find professional help. There are some actions to avoid, Terry said. "Do not nag. Do not scold. Do not shame people," she said. "Do not tell people, Get a grip. Get over it.' Or, Pull yourself up by your bootstraps.' That does more harm than good." Those who take their own lives generally have impaired judgment, said Terry, who at one point in her life was clinically depressed and considered ending her life. "People who attempt to complete suicide are usually in so much emotional pain that they have no capacity to consider what pain their action might cause someone else," she said. The death of a comic genius that brought so much joy to others illustrates what a pervasive and potentially deadly force depression can be. "What comes out of all of this is that we never know when someone is suffering suicidal thoughts," said Westuba, who facilitates a group called Healing After a Loved One's Suicide. "It's a very complex situation." The group meets at Suncoast Kids Place in Lutz, which is part of Van Dyke Church. Westuba leads a group for adults, but another group for teenagers is expected to begin meeting in September. Such settings can be helpful for people who are coming to terms with their loss and their grief, Tompkins said. Even if there are no easy answers, he added, "It does seem very helpful and beneficial to be able to have a place to ask those questions. "I think that it's important to remember that grief is a process," he said. "It's not like a light switch" that can be easily turned off and on. "For many survivors, the sad part lives on for a long time."

WILLIAMS from page 1A questions and take assessment tests. They also learn about the admissions process, degree paths and financial aid. Concept College also helps students take their first steps toward attending college, HIxon said. The program helps them with the application process, including paying their $25 application fee. It's a small amount, but it can make a difference, she said. That's not the only financial assistance, however. Participants can apply for scholarships, which vary each year based on how many students enroll and apply, and how much financial support the program gets. The dollar amount usually ranges between $500 and $1,000 per year, Hixon said. At a school where a 12-credit, full-time schedule costs around $1,100, it can make a transition into college smoother for those who see the cost as a significant obstacle. Over the years, the program has reached every high school in Pasco County and a couple in Hernando County as well. And it's all done on a budget of around $10,000 per year. The program relies on private donations to keep going, Hixon said, with Wells Fargo and the Tampa Bay Rays standing out as major contributors this year. The baseball team presented the school with a $5,000 donation this summer as part of their Rays Baseball Foundation Community Grant Program. "For what it costs, we do a lot with very little, and it yields a lot of impact for the students," Hixon said. "It's a wonderful program." And Rowold agrees. After participating in Concept College, she enrolled at PHSC, and will begin pursuit of her associate's degree in just a couple of weeks. After graduation she plans to enter the medical field. The program was helpful, Rowold said, and could impact even more students by reaching them earlier so they can be motivated to improve their grades and prepare for a chance they didn't know they had. And while she's excited about starting college, she's not really nervous. Rowold said she was prepared well by Concept College, and everything was explained to her before she enrolled. "It answered all my questions," Rowold said. "I always had questions about it, but I didn't know who to ask. I felt like I learned a lot." COLLEGE from page 1A Healing group WHAT: Healing After a Loved One's Suicide WHO: Adults, 18 and older WHEN: 7 p.m. to 9 p.m., the first and third Wednesday of each month WHERE: 17030 Lakeshore Road, Building G, Lutz COST: Free INFO: Suncoast Kids Place, (813) 990-0216 Warning signs People who die by suicide often show one or more of these warning signs before they take action: Talk about wanting to kill themselves, or say they wish they were dead Look for ways to kill themselves, such as hoarding medicine or buying a gun Talk about a specific suicide plan Feel hopeless or having no reason to live Feel trapped, desperate, or needing to escape from an intolerable situation Feel like they're a burden to others Feel humiliated Have intense anxiety or panic attacks Lose interest in things, or lose the ability to experience pleasure Experience insomnia Become socially isolated and withdrawn from friends, family and others Acting irritable or agitated Show rage or talk about seeking revenge for being victimized or rejected, whether or not the situations seem real Those showing these types of behavior should be evaluated for possible suicide risk by a medical doctor or mental health professional.

And a couple of groups are trying to get some final endorsements in before that happens. Mike Moore, who is in a Republican primary against Ken Littlefield and Bob Robertson, earned the endorsement of the Tampa Bay Builders Association, and is set to attend an open house at TBBA's new offices on East Kennedy Boulevard in Tampa on Aug. 21. Robertson, however, earned the nod from Pasco Fiasco, the activist group that successfully fought against an elevated toll road on the State Road 54/56 corridor earlier this year. "Robertson displayed genuine concern on local issues, and a track record for getting involved and staying connected with the community," the group said, in a release. "He was also the first District 2 candidate to leave no wiggle room in the matter of firmly standing against the proposed State Road 54/56 toll road that would've become an albatross for Pasco County taxpayers for decades to come." Also earning an endorsement from Pasco Fiasco was Commissioner Henry Wilson Jr., who is facing a re-election battle with Mike Wells Jr., in District 4. "Wilson may be a first-term commissioner, however he displays the willingness to do what's right by the people despite any criticism from his detractors," Pasco Fiasco organizers said. "Now that he's gotten his feet wet, he seems poised to hit his stride at tackling the serious issues facing growing Pasco County. For many months, Wilson was the lone voice of sanity on board of county commissioners meetings, opposing the State Road 54 toll road concept." EARLY VOTING IN HILLSBOROUGH, PASCO Pasco County early voting runs through Aug. 23 at eight locations throughout the county. Polls are open between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m., except for Aug. 23, when they will be open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Election day for the primary election is Aug. 26. Polling places include the East Pasco Government Center, 14236 Sixth St., in Dade City; the Land O' Lakes Library at 2818 Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes; the New River Library at 34043 State Road 54 in Zephyrhills; and The Grove at Wesley Chapel, 6013 Wesley Grove Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. Hillsborough County will have 15 early voting sites open through Aug. 24, including weekends, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., for those who want to participate in the primary election. Once voting begins, those who wish to cast their ballot early can visit VoteHillsborough.org, and find out both locations and wait times. Hillsborough voters can go to any of the 15 sites to vote. POLL WORKERS NEEDED FOR NOVEMBER ELECTIONS Energetic? Service-oriented? Then the Pasco County supervisor of elections may be looking for you. Poll workers are needed for the general election Nov. 4. Positions are paid, but potential candidates will need to be able to stand, bend, stoop, lift approximately 30 pounds, and have normal vision and manual and physical dexterity. Applicants also need to write and read English, have an email address, and be able to work the entire day from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. All positions receive mandatory paid training the month preceding the election. For information, call (800) 851-8754, or visit PascoVotes.com. FREE RIDES TO THE POLLS Pasco County Public Transportation will do its part to help get out the vote by offering free rides to the polls on election days for the upcoming cycle. The deal was worked out between PCPT and county elections supervisor Brian Corley, and was approved by the Pasco County Commission last week. On both primary day Aug. 26 and the general election day Nov. 4, voters who present their voter information card will ride free to their local polling location. The goal is to encourage and promote participation in the election process, while also introducing public transportation as a viable option for travel throughout the county, said PCPT director Michael Carroll. In return, Corley's office will use available media advertising and respective websites to inform potential riders and voters how to access and navigate the transit system. MOBILE HOURS FOR ROSS U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, will host mobile office hours Sept. 9 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Lutz Library, 101 W. Lutz Lake Fern Road in Lutz. Other dates in Lutz include Oct. 14 and Dec. 9. For more information, call (863) 6448215, or (813) 752-4790. BILIRAKIS TO HOST OFFICE HOURS U.S. Rep.

This recreational program will help young athletes to develop soccer skills, sportsmanship, and a stronger faith, according to a release. Each hour-long session includes sports training, a short devotional lesson, and three-on-three scrimmages. It is designed to help experienced players to excel, new players to improve, and all players to work together as a team. A licensed competitive soccer trainer supervises the sessions, with qualified coaches and players assisting. "In a small-sided game, players get more touches on the ball, more transitions, more fitness, and typically more fun," said Jeff Olsen, pastor of Grace Community Church, in a release. The academy will be on the church campus at 30243 Wells Road. It's located on Boyette Road, about a quarter-mile south of Wesley Chapel District Park. The program will be on Wednesday nights throughout September and October, beginning Sept. 10, and running through Oct. 15. Registration for the six-session program is $25.

New camp brings together church, God and soccer By Michael Murillo mmurillo@lakerlutznews.com Last season the Wesley Chapel Wildcats lost all of their games. They were shut out four times and only scored seven points or more in two contests all year. In half of their games, they lost by at least 30 points. But in the locker room and at practice, no heads are hanging. Players aren't dejected or going through the motions. In fact, there's plenty of optimism and enthusiasm as they prepare for a new season. And while head coach Tico Hernandez would loved to have registered some wins, he's not ashamed of his team's effort last year. "The scoreboard didn't go our way, but there are a lot of great things that we did do," said Hernandez, now entering his second year as the school's head coach. Participation "numbers up, kids behaving, academics up. Those are some important things that we take pride in." As a result, the Wesley Chapel High School administration and team parents have supported Hernandez's efforts to build a program with a strong foundation. Off-field production is important to Hernandez. In addition to his coaching duties at Wesley Chapel, he works with students who are in danger of not graduating, and helps them get back on the path to earning a diploma. But he also wants to see improved results on the field, and feels that another year of experience will help his team take a step forward in 2014. The team should have around seven offensive starters returning, including their quarterback and four offensive linemen. Hernandez believes having that consistency in the huddle will translate into a more efficient and effective unit. Their confidence should get a boost as well. Returning quarterback Scott Edwards credits their coach for keeping the team calm and focused as they struggled through a difficult season in 2013. "I think it was coach Hernandez' attitude. He's got a really positive attitude about the whole season, and I think that helps us out," Edwards said. He believes that last year's experience coupled with some competition will help him up his game this year. Ryan Robinson, who plays on the offensive line, said that returning so many linemen from last year also will make a big difference. He believes that it's up to him and his teammates on the line to step up and create opportunities for the offense. "We play the biggest role if you ask me," Robinson said. "Without us, none of this happens." Hernandez also feels good about the team's defense. While they gave up a lot of points in some games, he said those numbers don't tell the whole story. Mistakes on offense, special teams scores and other mental miscues often put the defense in difficult situations, and contributed to some lopsided defeats. He has confidence the Wildcats will have a good showing on that side of the ball. While there's a lot of optimism headed into the season the team feels good about their participation in seven-on-seven competition this summer nobody is willing to make concrete predictions about the upcoming season. Hernandez acknowledges there's a lot of talent in Class 5A-District 7, and their non-district schedule isn't any easier, with matchups against schools like Pasco and Sunlake. Despite the challenges, the coach believes they're building a strong program and looks forward to seeing how his team has progressed since struggling through a winless season last year. However things turn out, Hernandez feels privileged to have the opportunity to work with the team, play a role in their growth and be part of the game he enjoys. "I love it. I'm blessed," Hernandez said. "Every day I'm thankful. I've got coaches who believe in each other, the administration is fantastic and community support's up. "We play a game that these kids have played since they were little kids. We're blessed every day to be able to come out here with great health. It's a great opportunity to play football in the state of Florida." MICHAEL MURILLO/STAFF PHOTO With another year of experience under their belts, Scott Edwards, left, and Ryan Robinson are expected to help turn around Wesl ey Chapel's fortunes in 2014.

She is a very nice kitty, and loves attention and pets. If you would like to invite Cookie into your family, email Cat Crusaders at adopt@tampacatcrusaders.org. For more information about other adoptable cats, visit TampaCatCrusaders.org/animals/list. A well-disciplined retriever Felix is a 7-year-old flat-coated retriever who came to the Pasco County Animal Shelter as a stray, and his owners never came to look for him. He is a very wellbehaved boy, knows basic commands, and appears to be housebroken. He also appears to like kids as well. Felix has had some service dog training, and will stop at doors and sit and check for directions before proceeding. He heels very well. To adopt Felix or pets like him, visit Pasco County Animal Services at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O' Lakes. All big, black or brown dogs are available for half off the normal adoption cost in August. The fees are $35 for a dog that includes spay/neuter, heartworm test, vaccines and microchip. For more information, email adoptionpartners@pascocountyfl.net The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Mr. McTrouble doesn't exactly live up to his name. In fact, he's a pretty good dog a therapy dog, actually, which recently clocked in 186 hours of volunteer service at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point. Chuck Andrews owns the threeyear-old Sheltie, who likes to make the rounds at the Hudson hospital, as well as make a weekly visit to Shriner's Hospital in Tampa. Animal visits to a hospital provide positive, lasting memories for patients and their families with an event to be excited about, hospital officials said. Visiting with animals can help people feel less lonely and less depressed. Those who welcome animals to hospitals say that many patients become more active and responsive to treatment both during and after their visit with an animal. Stroking a dog or cat can reduce a person's blood pressure as well. A dog visit offers entertainment as well as a welcome distraction from pain and infirmity. One patient at Bayonet Point had been slowly recovering from a coma when Mr. McTrouble came in. Andrews, the dog's owner, told the patient that if she could get into a wheelchair by their next visit, she could take Mr. McTrouble for a walk down the hall. By the next week, that same patient was sitting in a wheelchair, anxiously awaiting Mr. McTrouble's arrival. Another visit to Shriner's Hospital involved a young girl who was in need of a prosthesis for each of her arms, but she kept refusing them. However, when Mr. McTrouble arrived, she quickly told her therapist to get her those arms so that she could pet the Sheltie. Catapalooza continues on There are just a couple weeks left for the first ever Catapalooza at Pasco County Animal Services, where families can adopt two cats for the price of one. The special runs through Aug. 30, and gives a chance to find homes for two cats for $35. "We typically have an abundance of felines during the summer months, and it is not unusual for us to receive a high number of feline moms with kittens during this time of year," said Mike Shumate, manager of the animal services department, in a release. "It is our goal for as many kittens and cats as possible to find good, loving homes." The adoption fee for both cats includes a health examination, vaccinations, and spaying and neutering. The shelter is located at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O' Lakes. It's open noon to 4:30 p.m., on Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday, and noon to 6:30 p.m., on Thursday. Blowout sale Aug. 23 Pasco County Animal Services is offering a chance to adopt both cats and dogs for free on Aug. 23. That includes vaccinations, spaying and neutering, and heartworm tests. The animal shelter at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O' Lakes is over capacity, and is in dire need to get animals adopted. For information, visit PascoCountyFl.net/PAS, or call (813) 9291212. Big dogs seeking big-hearted owners They don't usually get a lot of attention compared to small and furry dogs, but black, brown and larger dogs need homes, too. And Pasco County Animal Services has reduced the adoption fee for those kinds of dogs to $35 through Aug. 30. Prospective pet owners often overlook the larger dogs, to the point where some people at the shelter have referred to it as "black, brown dog syndrome." "Many times, the big, black and brown dogs with no markings appear to be a little bit plain, even though they're bursting with personality," Shumate said. "So we at animal services have to accentuate that." The shelter is located at 19640 Dogpatch Lane in Land O' Lakes.

Springleaf Financial has filed a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification, or WARN, with the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, saying it plans to cut those jobs beginning in October. The office, according to the notice, is located at 2533 Windguard Circle, Unit 101, in Wesley Chapel, just across from Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel off Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. "Springleaf has decided to sell its mortgage services business," the Indiana-based company told The Laker/Lutz News, in a release. "In conjunction with the sale, the company plans to close its facility in Wesley Chapel. This was a difficult decision, and where possible, we are working to place affected staff in new positions within the company." The sale of the mortgage service division was part of nearly $7.2 billion worth of divisions Springleaf recently decided to part ways with. The company provides loans and other credit-related products to more than a half million people in 26 states, as well as Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands, according to the company's website. It also provides bill consolidation loans, personal loans, home improvement loans, and loans for unexpected expenses and vacations. The company went public in 2013. NEW SEVEN OAKS COMMUNITY MAY HAVE TO RETHINK GATES A new townhouse community planned for Wesley Chapel's Seven Oaks subdivision is struggling to keep the neighborhood gated. Pasco County officials have recommended denying a request by The Ryland Group to allow for two gated access points as a planned 96-unit community near the intersection of Stockton Drive and Bruce B. Downs Boulevard. The problem, they say, is that there isn't enough room to accommodate a line of cars. County ordinance requires there be at least 75 feet of space from a sidewalk to a community's gated entrance, enough to fit three cars. However, because of the unusual layout design of the property where Seven Oaks Ryland Townhomes is planned, it can only provide enough space to accommodate two cars. The rule, officials said, ensures there is enough room for a small line of cars, without blocking sidewalks and roads. The plan would have provided for two entrances into the community, one from Stockton Drive, the other from Eagleston Boulevard. Only the entrance at Stockton would provide visitor access, but even a resident-only entrance at Eagleston created concerns from county officials. That's because it would only have enough room to hold one vehicle, and any additional vehicles would block pedestrian pathways. Developers will have a chance to plead their case in front of the Development Review Committee, which will meet in the county commission chambers at 8731 Citizens Drive in New Port Richey on Aug. 21, beginning at 1:30 p.m. UPCOMING PHHCC EVENTS Some of the upcoming August events with the Pasco Hernando Hispanic Chamber of Commerce include: Mixer Aug. 20 beginning at 5:30 p.m., at Good Faith Insurance Services, 5854 Argerian Drive, Suite 101, in Wesley Chapel. Coffee & Conversation Aug. 22 beginning at 7:30 a.m., at Centennial Bank, 23000 State Road 54 in Lutz. Business & Career Expo, Oct. 17 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Wesley Chapel Toyota, 5300 Eagleston Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. For information, visit PHHChamber.com. NEW PAINTING FRANCHISE OPENS Jason Metz has opened a new location for ProTect Painters, a professional painting company that specializes in exterior and interior residential and commercial painting projects, in Wesley Chapel. It will be located at 1936 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., Suite 64. ProTect Painters as a corporation was acquired by Service Brands International in 2009, the franchisor of household services companies like Molly Maid and Mr. Handyman. Under the SBI umbrella, ProTect Painters is expected to grow to 200 franchises over the next five years, according to a release. For information, call (813) 279-5083. PLANNED ZEPHYRHILLS RESTAURANT GETS SOME FINANCIAL HELP The Zephyrhills City Council, meeting as the Community Redevelopment Agency, approved nearly $20,000 to help a popular Tampa restaurant expand into Zephyrhills. Michael and Laura Andrews want to open Smokehouse B-B-Q & Grill at 5740 Seventh St., a space formerly occupied by Pancho Villa's Mexican Restaurant. However, nearly $40,000 in vandalism caused to electrical and air-conditioning made that nearly impossible. The CRA, however, offered to help, which could pave the way to creating up to 30 new jobs in the city, according to city documents. The Andrews bought the 36-year-old building for $95,000. It originally sold in 2003 for $250,000. The CRA will give the couple up to $19,688 or half the cost to make electrical and air-conditioning repairs according to City Manager Steve Spina. Smokehouse B-B-Q was started in 2004 on U.S. 301, one mile north of Interstate 4 in Tampa, according to city documents. Although revenue has steadily increased at that location over the past few years, the Andrews felt they had reached their capacity at their current location, and wanted to add a second one. HOUSING MARKET UP, CONDO SALES DOWN Nearly 15,000 existing homes and condominiums changed hands in the greater Tampa Bay area during April, May and June, showing promising housing market trends despite a drop in overall condo sales. The region which includes Pasco, Hillsborough, Hernando and Pinellas counties sold 3,733 condos in the second quarter, down more than 5 percent from the year before. The median sales price, however, rose more than 12 percent to $110,000. The volume was second only to the greater Miami and Fort Lauderdale area, where nearly 13,000 condos were sold, according to a new report from Florida Realtors. Sales there, however, were down more than 6 percent. The lower volume is actually good news for the market, Florida Realtors chief economist John Tuccillo said, because that means foreclosure-related short sales are on the decline. "The second quarter numbers show that Florida's real estate market is settling in," Tuccillo said, in a release. "While prices throughout the state tend to be up, sales are mixed with single-family sales growing, and condos and townhouses declining." Some of the reasons for that include the reduced role of bulk investors buyers who pick up multiple units at a time in hopes to rent or flip and many families who are having trouble getting mortgage credit because of flat income. Just a little more than 10,800 single-family homes were sold in the quarter, up 3 percent from a year ago. Median prices, however, were much more flat at $156,000, an increase of 1.3 percent. Statewide, single-family sales were up more than 7 percent, while median sales prices rose just above 5 percent at $180,000.
