MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTOS It's tough to think about Florida without thinking about beaches. And these cupcakes bring that theme to life, complete with honey bears. These cupcakes were created by Belk employees in Land O' Lakes to help raise money for cancer research. The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Belk department store on Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes hosted its third annual Cupcakes for the Cure Oct. 3. Teams of employees and families worked the night before creating cupcakes that would not only delight those who wanted to eat them, but raise money for cancer research, too. In the past, the Belk cupcake contest has raised $1,200, and store manager Eric Drinkwater hoped to raise another $500 this year. Sweet victory in breast cancer fight Hamburgers, blueberry pie and even corn on the cob were some of the cupcake creations made to help raise money for cancer research at the Belk department store in Land O' Lakes Oct. 3. B INSIDE PAGE 1B By Michael Murillo firstname.lastname@example.org Some people take years into their adult life to figure out what career they want to have. But Dr. O. John Maduko, academic dean at Rasmussen College in Land O' Lakes, always knew what he wanted to be when he grew up. It wasn't a job at a college. He wanted to be a doctor. "At an early age I just knew what I wanted to be, to go into medicine," he said. And that's exactly what Maduko now O. John Maduko, M.D. became. And if not for some life-changing events, he might still be practicing to this day. But when his fiance Amanda was pregnant with their son, she developed a condition that prevented the use of her right arm and required surgery. Knowing she needed help caring for their child, and realizing that a 90-hour workweek wouldn't be conducive to an ideal family life, Maduko left the rigors of the medical field for a career in academics where he helps others find and improve their career paths. It might sound difficult to leave a position you love and had worked so hard to achieve. But for Maduko, it wasn't a tough decision at all. "It was easy because it was my wife and it was my son," he said. "So it was a no-brainer." Family always has been a big part of Maduko's life. A first-generation American hailing from California, his Nigerian-born parents set down rules from their hardworking culture that he and his younger siblings would follow growing up. That was to live life to the fullest, but always aspire to be educated and informed. Expectations are high, and there's no time for making excuses or becoming complacent. And when challenges occur, you face them and continue moving forward. But while he's moving forward with a career outside the medical field, Maduko hasn't exactly hung up his stethoscope for good. You never stop being a physician, he said. Maduko is involved in programs like Doctors Without Borders, a humanitarian organization that provides care and assistance in parts of the world that need it the most. He pursues efforts to improve medical conditions in Latin America and West Africa, and has future plans with his brother also a medical doctor to be involved in health care in the Tampa area. Now, five years after leaving the medical field, he's found a home with Rasmussen as academic dean at the East Pasco campus. MICHAEL MURILLO/STAFF PHOTO Dr. O. John Maduko enjoys his position as academic dean at Rasmussen College in Land O' Lakes, but family is never far from his mind. By B.C. Manion email@example.com It's not a bit uncommon for schools to hold food drives to help provide holiday meals for the poor, but Connerton Elementary School has a new program aimed at helping children who are hungry over weekends. The program, called Pack-A-Sack, is similar to some already under way at schools where a large percentage of children eat free or reduced-price meals, Connerton principal Aimee Boltze said. On the surface, Connerton doesn't seem like a school where children would need food assistance on the weekend. But that reality is that 36 percent of Connerton's students qualify for free or reduced-price meals, Boltze said. And some of those children are chronically hungry, said John Mize, a parent volunteer who has helped Connerton establish the Pack-A-Sack program. Mize was discussing this need when Boltze and they decided to tackle the challenge of helping these children. "Over the last six months, we developed the strategy," he said. "We identified the children that need the support." Boltze also assigned Sarah Owen, of the School fights weekend hunger A doctor, a dean, and a determination to help others See DOCTOR, page11A See HUNGER, page11A These Scooby Doo-themed cupcakes were honored for being best tied to the charity, raising money for cancer research at the Belk department store in Land O' Lakes.

Man i on firstname.lastname@example.org The author of the book that formed the basis of the movie "The Monuments Men" will speak at Saint Leo University on Oct. 21. The 7 p.m. talk by Robert Edsel kicks off the 2014-15 University Speaker Series for the school. The presentation will take place at the Greenfelder-Denlinger boardrooms of the student community center. It is free, and the public is welcome. Edsel's nonfiction account of a World War II military unit that saved European art treasures from Nazi looting became the basis of the film directed by George Clooney. The motion picture, released last December, stars Clooney, Matt Damon, Cate Blanchett, Bill Murray, John Goodman, Jean Dujardin, Hugh Bonneville and Bob Balaban. In addition to "The Monuments Men: Allied Heroes, Nazi Thieves, and the Greatest Treasure Hunt in History," Edsel also authored "Rescuing Da Vinci and Saving Italy: The Race to Rescue a Nation's Treasures from the Nazis." He also co-produced the documentary film, "The Rape of Europa." Edsel is the founder and president of the Monuments Men Foundation for the Preservation of Art. Besides his literary and film work, Edsel also was a nationally ranked tennis player and an entrepreneur in the gasoline and oil exploration industry. After his successful career, Edsel and his family moved to Europe during the 1990s, first living in Paris, and later in Florence. While in Florence, he developed a passion for art and architecture, according to the "Monuments Men" film website. He was curious about how so many monuments and great works of art survived the thefts and devastation of World War II. Edsel spent 12 years researching the story of the Monuments Men, which resulted in the publication of "Rescuing Da Vinci." His second book, which actually used the term "Monuments Men," was published in 2009. In January 2012, Clooney announced he would write, direct and star in the film adaptation of the book. Saint Leo University is at 33701 State Road 52, in east Pasco County, about four miles east of Interstate 75. Free parking is available in surface lots and the campus garage.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The U.S. Forest Service has invested $20 million in partnerships that supported work and training opportunities for 11,000 youth and veterans on national forests and grasslands this past year. Service members worked on projects that addressed restoration, hazardous fuels, watershed protection, wilderness stewardship, recreation access, facilities management, trail maintenance, and other natural and cultural resource priorities, according to a release. "The partnerships associated with developing the next generation of conservationists offer an opportunity to connect veterans and our young people to the great outdoors," said U.S. Agriculture secretary Tom Vilsack, in a release. "This program engages veterans and young people from diverse backgrounds including underserved populations and equips them with the knowledge and critical job skills they need to pursue careers in conservation and land management." The Forest Service provided employment in every state and region, as part of the 21st Century Conservation Service Corps. Partners matched the funds invested by the Forest Service on a nearly one-to-one basis. Forest service invests in youth, veterans The Monuments Men' author to speak at Saint Leo University
By B.C. Manion email@example.com Kriss Bowles was in Colorado attending a wedding with her husband, Brock, when he began complaining about pain in his spine as well as two of his ribs. He felt a lump in his right breast, too. When they returned to their home in Lutz, Brock decided to see his doctor. His main concern was trying to find out whether he had arthritis in his spine, but he also casually mentioned the lump in his breast, Kriss said. The doctor ordered a mammogram to be taken the next day. The screening led to a mastectomy, she added. The surgeon removed 13 lymph nodes, all of them cancerous. Brock underwent chemotherapy, but despite the doctors' efforts, the cancer spread to Brock's lungs, hips, spine and brain before his ordeal with cancer ended his life on Sept. 16, 2004. His death certificate, however, highlighted breast cancer. As the nation honors breast cancer awareness month in October with walks, runs, strolls, rallies and other events, Kriss who now lives in Land O' Lakes wants people to remember that men die from breast cancer, too. She said she felt compelled to get involved. When her husband was battling cancer, "He'd lay in a recliner to sleep," she said. "I would sit there and watch him sleep and wonder what was going through his mind. Because he knew he was dying. "One day I said, You know Lord, I know I'm not supposed to ask you why, but I'm asking Why Brock?'" Then she added, "I don't expect an answer right now, but I hope someday you'll give me an answer." After her husband's death, Kriss said she began noticing that when people talked about breast cancer, they never mentioned men. So she's made it her personal mission to spread the word about the need for men to be vigilant to protect themselves from breast cancer. Besides being aware of symptoms, they need to avoid being too "macho" to take breast cancer seriously, Kriss said. It's also important to eliminate any stigma: Men should not feel embarrassed about being afflicted with breast cancer because it is not a condition confined to women. Kriss said her husband wasn't embarrassed, but that's not true for all men. About 2,360 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed among men, according to the 2014 statistics from the American Cancer Society. About 430 men will die from breast cancer during the year. For men, the lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is about 1-in-1,000, according to Cancer Society estimates. The disease is about 100 times less common in men than women. Because the incidence is so much lower, men are not routinely screened for breast cancer. The smaller number of cases, however, does not diminish the importance of the issue, Kriss said. Male breast cancer affects everyone who has a husband, a son, a father, a brother, a nephew, an uncle or a grandfather, she said. To help spotlight the issue, Kriss waged a letter-writing campaign last year, reaching out to governors across the nation. She asked them to designate the third week in October as Male Breast Cancer Awareness Week. So far, 20 states have done so, she said. One of those states is New Jersey. That's where the Bowles lived before they moved to Florida. Gov. Chris Christie made the designation after Assemblyman Nelson Albano spoke about Brock during the opening session in Trenton, New Jersey. Besides writing letters, Kriss also has stickers printed, sharing that "Men get breast cancer, too." She also has had pink ribbon pins made that have the words, "Men, too," written on them. She gives those stickers and pins to organizers of breast cancer events, to help spread the word. It has been nine years, since Brock died. Kriss still does what she can to spread the word, and she's beginning to see some progress. One day, she hopes, that this month that's awash with pink ribbons and breast cancer prevention events will do more to acknowledge that, as her stickers say, "Men get breast cancer, too."

Kathy Castor has sent a letter to outgoing U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder, urging the Justice Department to conduct an inquiry related to civil rights restoration in Florida. The state sees most non-violent offenders never regaining their civil rights and voting rights, due to multiyear and bureaucratic requirements imposed by the Florida Clemency Board, Castor said. "I believe that in operation, Florida is violating the U.S. Constitution's tenets of due process and equal protection," the Tampa Democrat said in her letter. "Therefore, I respectfully request that the Justice Department conduct a thorough investigation into whether legal action is warranted against the state of Florida for its effective bar on civil rights restoration for non-violent offenders." In 2007, the Florida Clemency Board under then Gov. Charlie Crist voted to streamline the approval process for people with non-violent convictions, Castor said. However, in 2011, the board under Gov. Rick Scott reversed those rights restoration rules, and instituted highly restrictive policies. That year, the board restored civil rights to only 78 people, ignoring what the congresswoman says could be 600,000 who should be able to vote. "Non-violent offenders who have completed their sentences and paid their debt to society should have full and equal access to exercise their voting rights," Cantor said. "We must use all the tools and legal authorities at our disposal to fight against racial discrimination, to stand against disenfranchisement, and to safeguard the right of every eligible American to cast a ballot." Earlier this year, Castor joined the American Civil Liberties Union and the NAACP in calling on Scott and the clemency board to restore the voting rights of non-violent offenders who have paid fines and completed probation. In March, Castor sent a letter to Scott urging the change in policy. The governor and board did not act, Castor said. In May, Holder reportedly advised Scott that the state's action relating to voting rights would remain under scrutiny after Scott attempted to purge voter rolls in 2012.

P OLITICAL A GENDA SEND POLITICAL NEWS TO MHINMAN@LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM CAN MOORE RAISE TOO MUCH MONEY? A huge $22,500 haul from developers and real estate professionals over the last two weeks has given Pasco County Commission candidate Mike Moore his best fundraising week of the campaign, raising a whopping $34,250. It easily dwarfed the $600 his Democratic opponent Erika Remsberg raised during the same period, bringing Moore's total for the campaign over $166,000. However, more than 65 percent of that total came from individuals and companies involved in real estate, development and related industries something that made Moore a target during his primary campaign from opponents who said they refused to take any money from companies who might be looking for a vote on the commission. Moore also has paid out more than $123,000 outspending Remsberg 19-to-1. Moore has raised the most money since Ronald Oakley's failed attempt to unseat Ted Schrader in the 2012 commissioner race brought in just under $243,000. He's closing in on John Nicolette, who collected $170,500 to battle Schrader in 2008, and passed Michael Cox, who raised $162,600 against Henry Wilson Jr. in 2010. Voters will make the final decision between the two on Nov. 4, with the winner set to replace the retiring Pat Mulieri. CANDIDATES AT REPUBLICAN CLUB The Republican Club of Central Pasco will meet Oct. 22 at 6:30 p.m., at Copperstone Executive Suites, 3632 Land O' Lakes Blvd., in Land O' Lakes. Speakers will include state House District 38 candidate Danny Burgess, as well as Pasco County Commission candidate Mike Moore. Burgess faces Beverly Ledbetter in his race, while Moore is up against Erika Remsberg. For information, call Steve Graves at (813) 996-3011. SWIFTMUD LOWERS TAX RATE The Southwest Florida Water Management District's governing board adopted its millage rate for the coming year at 0.3658 mills, down 4 percent lower than the previous year. That means the owner of a $150,000 house with a $50,000 homestead exemption would pay $36.58 a year. The total budget for the year is $166.3 million. The agency, commonly known as Swiftmud, also will leverage $75 million of its funds through cooperative partnership, as well as public and private partners. The funds are matched to make $150 million available for alternative water supply development, and other water resource management projects. On top of that, $12 million is budgeted for springs initiatives, and another $6.4 million in state funding is designated for water supply activities to reduce groundwater withdrawals and improve water quality. COURTESY OF PASCO COUNTY SCHOOLS Getting out the vote Pasco County supervisor of elections Brian Corley visited Sunlake High School recently to encourage seniors there to get out and vote. The mid-term elections are Nov. 4, which includes several local races, and Corley shared how important it is to vote in all elections.

By design, our papers don't have an editorial page spouting the opinions of my staff, guest columnists or myself. In fact, our papers have not taken a political position on any topic or candidate in the 14 years I have owned the papers. Which is why I am always surprised to receive comments or emails from readers asserting that our news coverage is party to the "liberal media bias" or, as a recent writer wrote, of being a "Republican rag." So I thought I'd go on record and make it clear that as owner of The Laker/Lutz News, I do not view the papers as a mouthpiece pushing causes and candidates that I personally endorse. I never direct my staff to cover a political candidate or controversial issue, nor do I ask them to write a story with any political slant or pre-determined outcome. It makes no difference to my reporters whether I'm Democrat, Republican or independent; pro-growth or environmentalist; pro-life or prochoice; member of the National Rifle Association or supporter of the anti-gun lobby; Christian, Jewish or Muslim. My only agenda is to make sure my editorial staff writes about topics you want to read about. To give you stories about your neighbors and community that make you proud to call Pasco and north Hillsborough counties your home. Perhaps because we do not stake out political positions, we receive few letters to the editor. And the authors of the emails we get charging us as being too liberal or too conservative almost never provide their name and phone number. This is not to say, however, that we don't hear from our readers. We do. Just about every week we receive accolades from people telling us how much they appreciate our objective news coverage and what a difference it makes to their organization. Here's a recent example from Jennifer Medeiros, media manager of Girl Scouts of West Central Florida: "I just wanted to take a moment and thank you, on behalf of Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, for all your help spreading the word about our need for Girl Scout volunteers. The Laker has gone above beyond by helping us share this need all summer (since the end of May!) and now through the fall we could not be more grateful! "It's because of news outlets like The Laker that we're able to share our needs with the community, and generate the awareness we need to continue building girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place." This email makes me incredibly proud I even admit to goose bumps when my staff forwarded Jennifer's email to me. And I'm proud to report we're getting more comments like this since increasing the size of our paper in August. Our new format is 30 percent bigger, which obviously gives us more room for more stories. But it's our new B Section that gives us a second front page that really is getting attention. Here's what the co-owner of Haslam's Book Store, Ray Hinst, wrote after B.C. Manion profiled this Tampa Bay institution on the front of a recent B Section: "What a terrific article, B.C.! Photos look great, the quotes exact, and the volume of information you massaged into the narrative is simply outstanding. You have probably offered more insights into the book business than many folks who are doing it full time. "Thank you for considering us and exercising such expertise in the process. Again, the paper is lucky to have you." I believe The Laker/Lutz News is a reflection of the communities we serve. Letters like these tell the story of the good people we write about who want the most for their neighbors and neighborhoods. So I hope you don't think it self-serving to share some of these letters with you in a new section we're starting called "Noteworthy Kudos From Our Readers." Our first "Noteworthy" follows this column. We invite you to send us your comments on stories that move you, and encourage you to be on the lookout for this new feature so you, too, can be proud of the difference your community paper makes in the lives of your neighbors. Why you don't find political endorsements in our papers

Developers at Wiregrass Ranch want to build a 92-room Fairfield Inn & Suites on State Road 56, on a 91-acre parcel east of The Shops at Wiregrass. It would be located less than a mile off Bruce B. Downs Boulevard, and be close not only to the mall, but also to Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel and Pasco-Hernando State College's Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch. Pasco County officials will meet with developers in a non-public meeting this week to hash out some details of the project, but it will be located on land that has been used for decades for grazing at Wiregrass Ranch. It's not clear if developers plan to subdivide the tract of land on State Road 56, or to provide other outparcel amenities, since 91 acres is far more than the typical 2 acres or so a hotel of this size would need. The developer, who was not identified in documents filed with the county, has hired Hardeman-Kempton & Associates of Tampa to manage the project, which will include 54,500 square feet of commercial space. It would be just the second Fairfield Inn in Pasco County, joining a 78-room hotel in Holiday. The chain is considered one of the lower-cost brands operated by the Marriott chain, and locations typically are franchised out. New hotel coming to Wiregrass Ranch

Before you decide, ask about our qualifications and experiences. 813-874-9116 www.duiandinjurylawyerintampa.com Two convenient locations to serve you better! 2708 W. Kennedy Blvd. Tampa FL. 33609 14150 3rd Street Dade City FL. 33525 Se Habla Espaol 20 YEARS OF EXPERIENCE AND AGGRESSIVE REPRESENTATION school's exceptional student education staff, to serve as the school liaison. Mize has played a huge role in getting the program going, Boltze said. The Land O' Lakes man and wife Stephanie put a high priority on teaching their children the importance of serving others. They have two daughters attending Connerton 9-year-old Kensington, 9, and Maryalice, 7. They also have a son Patrick, 4, who will start kindergarten there next year. Mize sits on the board of a nonprofit organization, Start-A-Snowball, that provides $100 grants to support youth service projects. He said his work with that organization has inspired him to be involved at Connerton. The Mizes, Boltze and Owen have helped to foster collaboration between students, faculty, parents, local businesses and local churches, to launch the supplemental nutrition program. "Initially, we want to start with the food," Mize said. "Long-term, we want to branch out to other services." For instance, a partnership is being formed with Lake Myrtle Baptist Church, he said. The church plans to get involved with food drives, with tutoring and possibly even some sports league scholarships. Another group at school is doing a clothing drive, Boltze said. The school's first food drive yielded enough food o supply the first few months of the program. "We packed 344 sacks of food in 45 minutes," Mize said. "It was a sight to be seen." Mize got help from his family, Owen, a youth group from Gathering Pointe Church, and David Bisignano, who teaches at Connerton and leads a church youth group. The plan is to provide the supplemental foods every weekend and during the holidays, Boltze said. The school plans to hold additional food drives and welcomes help from residents, businesses and community organizations, Mize said. Unlike many food drives, which seek canned goods and other nonperishable food items, this one specifically seeks kid-friendly items. Those items are easy to open, offer nutritional value, and require no preparation. "This is about making sure kids have food to eat," Mize said. "We feel like if kids don't have enough food to eat, they're not going to be able to learn." Mize hopes other schools will set up their own programs. "Ultimately we would like to create a model that can be replicated at other schools," Mize said. But if that sounds like a radical departure from his chosen career, it actually has many similarities, Maduko said. He's able to use his knowledge and expertise to help people find solutions to problems, provide valuable advice, identify paths to success, and search for ways to improve their quality of life. But instead of possibly seeing a patient once, Maduko can now foster longer-lasting relationships with students. Sometimes that means having difficult conversations. Like a medical professional dealing with patients, an academic dean needs to be able to provide honest assessments of a situation and outline realistic options and consequences. But, also like a medical professional, it needs to be done in a way that's respectful and empowering. "The key is to give them hope, to maintain their dignity, to give them respect, to be transparent," Maduko said. "You never want to sugarcoat it, but at the same time, you want to inform in the way that at least they can take hold of what's going on." While he helps students face and overcome challenges, Maduko's had a few of his own. His wife regained function in her arm and they now have a 2-year-old daughter, Giuliana. But his son, Giovanni, now 4, was diagnosed with autism. Like his father, Giovanni is growing up in a focused home where everyone is expected to accomplish as much as they can, with plenty of hard work and without excuses. And he's rising to the challenge. Giovanni is on the high-functioning side of the spectrum, has a growing vocabulary, is adapting well to school, and is learning to express himself. Maduko is motivated by his son's drive and what he's been able to accomplish. "I look at him and he is an inspiration to me every day, because he doesn't know anything else but to learn something, do his best, try and master it, and try to learn something else," he said. Maduko also is motivated to see what students and the college can accomplish together. He served as health science chair at Rasmussen's Ocala campus before transferring to Land O' Lakes to become academic dean about a year ago. Maduko was impressed with Rasmussen's philosophy to empower its staff, allowing faculty to seek opportunities to improve the current way of doing things instead of simply adhering to whatever procedures are in place. "They're very innovative in terms of what can we do to improve our processes, improve the experience for students," he said. Part of improving that experience is interacting with those students and helping them find a successful path that works for their life situation and career goals. And when he speaks to them, Maduko uses the same philosophy he learned growing up, and the same mindset that has been successful with his own family: Don't give up, and don't stop moving forward. "I tell students and I tell loved ones that I can't promise you the win, I can't promise you how much and I can't tell you how tough the road is going to be," Maduko said. "But I can promise you that if you put your hard work and your will and your dedication into something, you will reap the benefits." HUNGER from page 1A DOCTOR from page 1A Want to help?

By Michael Hinman firstname.lastname@example.org A state regulatory agency ordered the company to refund $54 million to customers last week, yet many Duke Energy customers remain unhappy about being charged for $3.2 billion in failed nuclear power plant projects. And one candidate for the Florida House is feeling the heat. Danny Burgess, the former Zephyrhills mayor looking to replace Will Weatherford in Tallahassee, had to answer some tough questions from a crowd during a forum at Lexington Oaks last week about accepting a campaign contribution from Duke, and how that might affect his stance on what the nation's largest utility is charging Florida residents. "The answer is very simple: nobody can buy my vote," Burgess said. "I have been very fortunate to receive a lot of local support, and I have to be able to lay down my head at night. When I make a decision, it's for every single person in this room." Burgess, like other Legislature candidates from both parties, accepted a $1,000 contribution from Duke on July 25. He also received indirect support from Duke through a $2,000 contribution from the Republican Party of Florida, according to state campaign finance records, an organization that has received $100,000 from Duke this year, as well as in-kind donations of $32,250. Duke customers pay a $3.45 surcharge on their bills each month to help fund the company's closed nuclear power plant in Crystal River, as well as the cancelled nuclear power plant project in Levy County. "Duke Energy donated to my campaign," Burgess said. "Does that mean I support their decisions? Absolutely not. And I believe that we should repeal the Nuclear Cost Recovery clause." Beverly Ledbetter, the Democratic challenger for House District 38 against Burgess, said she has not taken any money from Duke. She also acknowledges, however, she has an uphill climb against Burgess, raising just $24,000 compared to his $119,000 haul. "I didn't take money from utilities, and I don't take money from those who do not have the same values that I have," Ledbetter said at the forum. "I am not as well funded as Danny, but I am proud of what we've done at the end of day. You have to look at yourself in the mirror, and you have to be proud of who you are and what you represent." Ledbetter, a retired educator with Pasco County Schools, says she supports a controversial version of the Common Core school curriculum that is being integrated into Florida schools. Setting standards is exactly what educators need, with some of what she called political pressures removed from testing. "Every teacher believes in testing," she said. "They want to assess where our students are so that we know what they have learned. The problem is that these tests are being used for things that tests should not be used for. Too much is riding on the outcome school grades, teacher pay, graduation and promotion for our students." And it comes with a $250 million price tag, money that could be spent on vocational education instead, Ledbetter said. But Common Core takes away from the ability of local schools to tailor educational needs to their specific students, Burgess said. "I am not in favor of putting more of our education decisions in the hands of Washington bureaucrats," he said. "We need to focus on local autonomy and local control, and nobody knows the needs of our students here locally better than the teachers in our classrooms, and the administrators at the local level." Based on his experience as a small city mayor, Burgess said he saw firsthand how important local control can be. "It is the most important form of government, and nobody knows the needs of the community more than the people on the ground," he said. But the federal government did not develop Common Core, Ledbetter said. Instead, the National Governors Association a bipartisan organization consisting of state governors created the standardized education system. Once kids get out of school and into the work force, Burgess says he's optimistic about their chances. And while raising wages should be considered, he's not convinced it's something the government should mandate. "What we also need to take into consideration is small businesses in our communities that create jobs," Burgess said. "If you raise the minimum wage, you have to be careful that it may, in turn, have unintended consequences. It may cause employers to have to lay people off, and even may cause employers to shut their doors." Yet, raising the minimum wage could, in itself, provide a boost in the economy, Ledbetter said. "This talk about the living wage is because people who are working these minimum wage jobs now can't afford to buy a home, and they don't have a lot of disposable income," Ledbetter said. "Demand creates jobs, and when you have money to spend, you can buy goods and services." Low pay can also burden taxpayers, too, Ledbetter said. She cited a study about Walmart employees, who have to seek public assistance for basic needs because their low-wage jobs won't cover it. Burgess said he wouldn't completely discount the possibility of a state minimum wage, just that it be thought through thoroughly. "It's a serious issue," he said, "and something that needs to be seriously evaluated." Burgess won't defend Duke Energy, despite donation

By Michael Murillo firstname.lastname@example.org The Sunlake Seahawks have had a strong start to the 2014 season. They've given up a total of just 26 points in seven games, including four shutouts. Their 6-1 record includes a district loss, but the team is still in good position to capture a playoff berth if they take care of business the rest of the way. Toward the bottom of the Class 6ADistrict 6 standings is Land O' Lakes. The Gators are just 3-3, including an 0-1 district record. They have given up the second-most points in the district. In fact, in three of their contests, they've surrendered more points than Sunlake has given up all year. But if you think those statistics mean the Seahawks will have an easy time when they visit the Gators on Oct. 17, you should probably keep that opinion to yourself. That's because Sunlake head coach Bill Browning doesn't want to hear any talk about taking games for granted. "Oh, no. Absolutely not," Browning said. "Land O' Lakes has a good football team. They obviously have a very good throwing game, so we have to be able to get lined up right and be able to defend the pass against them." Browning recognizes there's more to the Gators than a .500 record. Their quarterback, James Pensyl, already has thrown for more than 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns. They've scored 192 points, which is more than Sunlake and everyone else in the district. And while they've lost three times, two of those defeats were by a touchdown or less. Sunlake might be catching the Gators at a bad time, too. Their running game supposedly a weak spot of their offense came alive for nearly 300 yards versus Hudson on Oct. 10 in a convincing 55-30 victory that snapped a two-game losing streak. Sunlake boasts its own offensive weapons, of course. Running back Nathan Johnson paces the offense, and receiver Naejaun Jackson has been a reliable receiver for the passing game while mixing in several carries as well. And road games haven't been a problem for Sunlake this year: They're a perfect 4-0 so far when playing in hostile territory. But records don't mean much when you're talking about Sunlake and Land O' Lakes, according to Browning. There's another word that begins with an "R" that means a lot more. "It's a rivalry game, so you can throw the records out of the book when it's a big rival," he said. The rivalry wasn't much of a competition when it first started. Browning has been with the Seahawks since its program began in 2007, and admits his teams had a "little brother" mentality when it came to the Gators in those early years. They didn't even score the first two times the teams played, and didn't register a victory until their fourth meeting. But Sunlake hasn't lost since, and now holds a 4-3 edge over their rival. When two schools are less than 10 miles from each other, both teams can expect fans in the stands and an opponent who is ready to play hard regardless of record. But throw in an important district contest with playoff implications on the line, and it's easy to predict a hard-fought contest with both schools doing everything they can to come out ahead Friday night. "All the players know each other," Browning said. "We're right in each other's backyard. It makes for a great rivalry game. "You approach it the same way as any other game, but it always means a little bit more when you face your rival for both sides." GETTING THE SUB YOU LOVE IS NOW EASIER THAN EVER.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report T he patient and steady-handed monks worked quietly as they shared an ancient and sacred form of Tibetan Buddhist art during Peace Week at Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch. Students and faculty stopped by the third-floor lobby to watch the monks, who were creating a sand mandala at the satellite campus of Pasco-Hernando State College. The monks began the week by chanting and drawing complex structures, geometric shapes, circles, spirals and Sanskrit writing to form the base and outline of the sand mandala. They used special tools and colorful grains of sand to construct a work that symbolizes a harmonious universe, the five Buddha families, and the purification of the five negative emotions: anger, jealousy, pride, lust, and unawareness, according to Virginia Blum, a translator from New York, who was at the event. Tibetan Monk Drupon Thinley Ningpo Rinpoche worked with Lama Gyaltsen and Tsunma Richen Khando to apply the sand. When the mandala was completed, there was a dissolution ceremony, with the monks sweeping the sand from its baseboard. The deconstruction symbolizes impermanence and illustrates that everything has a beginning, middle and end, Blum said. Those attending the ceremony were able to take home some of the sand, as a blessing of personal health, healing and protection. Tibetan monks help celebrate peace week These colorful sands used to construct the mandala came from a Michael's, an arts and craft store.

It can be especially frightful for pets and pet owners. Even the most responsible pet owner may not know all of the dangers lurking around their beloved pet during this time of year. Thankfully, the nightmares can be avoided. Halloween can actually be a fun and festive time for both pets and owners. These steps will help keep pets safe and away from the hidden hazards of this October holiday. Trick-or-treat candies are not for pets. All forms of chocolate especially baking or dark chocolate can be dangerous, and even lethal, for dogs and cats. Symptoms of chocolate poisoning may include vomiting, diarrhea, rapid breathing, increase heart rate, and seizures. Halloween candies containing artificial sweetener Xylitol can also be poisonous to dogs. Even small amounts of Xylitol can cause a sudden drop in blood sugar and subsequent loss of coordination and seizures. While Xylitol's toxicity in cats has yet to be established, it's better to be safe than sorry. Don't leave pets out in the yard on Halloween. Surprisingly, vicious pranksters have been known to tease, injure, steal and even kill pets on Halloween night. Inexcusable? Yes. But preventable, nonetheless. Keep pets confined, and away from the door. Not only will a door be constantly opening and closing on Halloween, but strangers will be dressed in unusual costumes and yelling loudly for their candy. This, of course, can be scary for furry friends. Dogs are especially territorial, and may become anxious and growl at innocent trickor-treaters. Putting a dog or cat in a secure room away from the front door also will prevent them from darting outside into the night. Keep outdoor cats inside several days before, and several days after Halloween. Black cats are especially at risk from pranks or other cruelty-related incidents. In fact, many shelters do not adopt our black cats during October as a safety precaution. Keep Halloween plants such as pumpkins and corn out of reach. Although they are relatively non-toxic, such plants can induce gastrointestinal upset should pets ingest them in large quantities. Intestinal blockage can even occur if large pieces are swallowed. Don't keep lit pumpkins around pets. Should they get too close, they run the risk of burning themselves, or knocking it over and causing a fire. Keep wires and electric light cords out of reach. If chewed, a pet can cut himself on shards of glass or plastic, or receive a life-threatening electrical shock. Don't dress a pet in a costume, unless you know they'll love it. If you do decide that Fido or Kitty needs a costume, make sure it isn't annoying or unsafe. It should not constrict movement, hearing, or the ability to breathe, or bark, or meow. Try on pet costumes before the big night. If they seem distressed, allergic, or show abnormal behavior, consider letting them go in their "birthday suit." Festive bandanas usually work for party poopers, too. IDs please! If a dog or cat should escape and become lost, having the proper identification will increase chances that they will be returned. Just make sure the information is up-to-date, even if a pet does have a microchip.
