Forever the Keppel Way at Land O' Lakes High School By Michael Hinman firstname.lastname@example.org The crowd was there to watch the football teams from Land O' Lakes and Sunlake high schools take the field. But for several minutes before kickoff, they were all chanting something much different: "We love Keppel!" Kris Keppel, who spent more than two decades as the coach of the Land O' Lakes cross-country team, and even longer as a teacher, was given that ovation during last Friday's game. Keppel, never one who likes to draw attention to himself, knew something was up when he was invited to the game. But he still showed up, because he knew his courage facing pancreatic cancer would continue to inspire the students and athletes at the school. "It's pretty easy to inspire," Keppel told the crowd. "Inspiration is a two-way street. You all can inspire each other on a daily basis." School officials and his team wanted to honor Keppel for being a finalist in the Brooks Inspiring Coach of the Year contest. Although Keppel received the most votes in the nationwide competition, he was able to applaud as Renee Williams-Smith of Manhattan Beach, California, received this year's award during a ceremony last summer in Seattle. The initial idea was to give Keppel a large trophy, girls' cross-country coach and close friend Karen DeHaas said. But then an idea surfaced that would allow Keppel's work to be honored year after year, naming a new school inspirational award after him and a fellow teacher, the late Marilyn Ling, who also battled cancer. "We have always had inspirational people that helped our students and helped our faculty," school assistant principal Rich Batchelor said. "We would like to start a new award, the Ling Inspiring Individual Award. But we decided to rename it for the first recipient of the award. So it will now be known as the Ling Keppel Inspiring Individual Award." But the school wasn't done. A small crowd walked to a spot just outside the Land O' Lakes football stadium so a new street sign could be unveiled renaming that stretch of Gator Lane to Keppel Way. "What better way to have students in the future know how much he inspired us to do things the Keppel way than to actually rename the roadway that leads into the athletic facility here," school principal Ric Mellin said. "From this point forward, every time our athletes come down the road from the parking lot into the stadiums in the back here, they are going to be doing it the Keppel Way." Keppel was first diagnosed with pancreatic cancer more than a year ago. Despite B INSIDE, PAGE 1B No tricks, but plenty of free community treats for Halloween By Michael Murillo email@example.com Many families will go door-to-door in local neighborhoods searching for candy this Halloween. But if you'd rather do something different or don't want to limit the fun to Oct. 31 there are several public events to enjoy. Several activities most of them free occur the weekend before Halloween, while others are scheduled for the week of the holiday, and the rest on Oct. 31. FOR FAMILIES Halloween Howl in Zephyrhills is an annual free event Oct. 25 along Fifth Avenue from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. There will be a costume parade, a hayride which costs $2 and free books for children. There's also a haunted house at 38533 Fifth Ave., the historic Jeffries House. The costume parade starts at 6 p.m., near FRED BELLET/PHOTO Ellison Stokes, 2, points out what a pumpkin is to her 7-month-old brother, Marshal, who will celebrate his first Halloween. They are flanked by their parents, Kyle and Laci Stokes of Wesley Chapel, during a recent visit to the Seal Swim School in Lutz. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Kris Keppel along with daughters Meredith and Morgan, and wife Dar, proudly show the new sign students and visitors will see leading the way to the athletic fields of Land O' Lakes High School. Principal Ric Mellin says this will remind everyone to take the Keppel way.' By B.C. Manion firstname.lastname@example.org The stage is empty. But then, they start arriving: The woman who does information technology finance during the day, the guys who do pest control and lawn work. Then, there's the nanny, the grocery clerks, the college students and the teachers. When they hit their marks, they shed those roles of daily life and become Seymour, Audrey, Orin Scrivello D.D.S., and other characters in "Little Shop of Horrors." As they immerse themselves, the actors hope they can transport the audience right along with them into the world they've created. At least that's what cast members said during breaks at a recent rehearsal at Bridgeway Church on Wells Road in Wesley Chapel. They've been rehearsing for weeks. They'll present the comedy rock horror musical at 8 p.m., on Oct. 24 and Oct. 25 at the Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel, 30651 Wells Road. The musical represents the first fullfledged production of Dreamhouse Theatre, a theater company based in Wesley Chapel that got its start about a year ago. The company's first production was a musical review, but this one is much more ambitious. Bryan D'Onofrio, the company's artistic director, has a lot riding on it. As does his wife, Darci, the play's executive director. "Something we've always wanted to do was to have our own theater," Bryan D'Onofrio said. "That's been a dream of ours." The couple has talked about it for about two decades. "Our pastor gave us a book called The Dream Giver,'" he said. "It was about following your dreams and doing what you're meant to do, what you're born to do." So, the D'Onofrios decided: "Let's give this a shot." They joined forces with Chris and Melissa VanSchaik, also of Wesley Chapel, to bring the vision of Dreamhouse Theatre to life.

It was his first debate in his race for a seat on the Zephyrhills City Council, and he had an uphill battle to convince older voters that elected an 18-year-old to represent them was the right way to go. "I realized that you just got to be an open book," Burgess said. "I remember looking at my mom and telling her that I am just going to get up there and tell the truth. And as long as I'm telling the truth, nothing else matters." Telling the truth worked, as did Burgess' highly precocious approach to life of being mature far beyond his years. He won that council seat, went to law school, threw in a quick year as mayor, and now a decade later he has a new prize in sight: state House District 38. The current representative, Will Weatherford, would have to step down because of term limits, and Republicans needed a refreshing and young candidate to help energize its voting base in the district. Burgess, who had just stepped in to help calm a scandal in the mayor's office in Zephyrhills, was the most logical choice for them. But Burgess himself wasn't quite yet convinced. "I wanted to be in public service in some way shape or form when I was 18, and being on the council allowed me to provide a voice in the community because I knew I had something to offer," he said. "I had to really think about (the District 38 race) because this is one of those decisions that should not be easily made. It's something that can really take you away from your family, and I had a new wife, and I had a baby on the way." But Burgess made that decision, and on Dec. 3, he filed his paperwork to succeed Weatherford in Tallahassee. The race has not been without its own excitement, however. Burgess geared up early for a primary run against Minnie Diaz, a strong up-and-comer herself who had become very active in both the community and politics. And the winner of that race would have to face longtime Pasco County teacher and education advocate Beverly Ledbetter on the Democratic side of the ticket. But on qualifying day, Diaz was missing some paperwork, ultimately disqualifying her from the race. That allowed Burgess to focus instead on Ledbetter, who he has outspent 6-to-1. Remembering his political roots in Zephyrhills city government, Burgess is a champion of giving local governments as much power as possible. He has spoken out against unfunded mandates issued by Tallahassee, forcing smaller governments with much smaller budgets to scramble to stay in compliance with ever-changing laws. "You really have to be careful," he said. "Otherwise, a lot of the decisions you make on the state level can really tie the hands of our local government, which is our most precious form of government. It's as democratic and as accountable as it's ever going to get." Local governments know what they need and want, Burgess said, and far too often, lawmakers from hundreds of miles away think they know better. Burgess also wants to make sure the fast development in Pasco County the area he primarily represents is done right, especially in places like Wesley Chapel. "It's one of the fastest-growing areas, and a lot of opportunities are starting to pop up," Burgess said. "We have to continue to push these efforts and promote this area, and we have to support the local efforts and our local delegation to continue their work, like the State Road 56 expansion." He also is focusing on developing a better work force in the area, to help attract new businesses and keep high-paying jobs local. That includes his continued exploration of vocational opportunities that he started to do as Zephyrhills mayor, and making sure schools have the resources they need to make it happen. "We have to remember that not everybody who goes to school is college-bound, and we need to have options for them," Burgess said. "They need to work, too, and we need to make sure we're providing those opportunities for them to succeed." Burgess, an attorney with Johnson Auvil Pratico & Chane P.A. in Dade City, hopes he has all the pieces in place to win Weatherford's seat. But no matter what happens on Nov. 4, this is an experience he says he'll never forget. "This has been far more wonderful than I ever imagined it would be," Burgess said. "It's been fun along the way. And win, lose or draw, I'm very glad I did this." The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Yet another focus on a nonprofit has helped raise thousands of dollars from the community. The Pasco County Tax Collector's office raised nearly $4,000 for the Florida AAA Traffic Safety Foundation. The fundraising was part of the office's August promotion, which will be used for life-saving bicycle and automobile equipment, as well as educational training on traffic safety issues. Through the voluntary automobile registration and renewal check-offs, as well as direct cash donations from the public, the Florida AAA Traffic Safety Foundation will be able to purchase booster seats, bicycle helmets, educational materials, and other important bicycle and vehicle safety devices, according to a release. "The AAA is one of the most respected organizations in the nation," said Tax Collector Mike Fasano, in a release. "The funds raised through this promotion will benefit Florida in general, and the residents of Pasco County and surrounding communities, in particular." Additionally, the foundation will allow senior citizens to have their vehicles inspected to ensure their safety equipment is functioning properly. The donations made during the promotional event also will help educate children and adults about the dangers of texting and driving, as well as the dangers and penalties that driving while impaired may have on the driver and everyone else in a vehicle.

Pain Relief by the Craven Kids Veterans department serves those who have served By Michael Murillo firstname.lastname@example.org When military veterans were asked what type of information they wanted from a school or university, the top answer wasn't information about graduation rates or estimates regarding student loan debt. It wasn't even information about what credits earned in the military would be accepted by the institution. Those were important, of course. But according to a U.S. Government Accountability Office survey, 62 percent wanted information about veterans support services more than any other option. That answer isn't surprising to retired Gunnery Sgt. Tedd "Gunny" Weiser, interim director for Saint Leo University's Veteran Student Services. As a student who also served in the U.S. Marine Corps for 20 years, it makes perfect sense to him. "That basically tells me that when these veterans come off of active duty, there's a trust, a comfort level, in being able to speak with somebody who can not only talk the talk, but walk the walk," Weiser said. Having a department dedicated to their needs helps veterans transition from the structure of military life to the more self-directed schedule of a student. That assistance can take many forms, Weiser said. The university can answer questions, help find scholarship opportunities, or simply provide a sounding board for their frustrations. Just having a place to go can help Saint Leo's veteran students adjust easier. And there are plenty of students at the university who can use those services. At Saint Leo, 38 percent of the student body is active duty military or veterans, totaling around 3,500 students. The vast majority of those students are not learning in Pasco County. For more than four decades, Saint Leo has taught on military bases and installations. They currently have 40 education centers around the country, including a dozen different military bases in the United States. While the university's relationship with the military stretches back for decades, the Veteran Student Services department is fairly new. Established in 2012, it's the result of identifying ways to better assist its large veteran population, Weiser said, and was initiated by university president Arthur Kirk. "He saw the need to establish a better relationship and better support for our veteran and active duty students," he said. That support includes a lot more than answering basic questions or maintaining a campus presence. The university has developed a free online course specifically for veterans and their families on how to make the transition from military to civilian life. It includes information on areas such as job interviewing and resume writing, networking, as well as identifying benefits and opportunities for spouses and other dependents. The department also has its own financial resource for veterans where they can receive temporary assistance to help with financial obstacles to pursuing their educational goals. The Military Education Excellence fund provides gifts up to $500 to help pay for groceries, utilities or whatever expenses might occur. This year, the fund has dispersed 32 gifts ranging from $160 to $500. They have another $26,000 in reserve to handle future requests. The fund is donation-based, and Weiser said the department is trying a variety of methods to keep its coffers filled. One was the recent Mud Endeavor on Oct. 4 in Brooksville. The event, which features runners tackling a muddy obstacle course, is a tool different organizations can use to raise funds. While Weiser isn't sure how many people signed up to assist the department and how much money was raised quite yet, he believes it was only a modest total. Due to logistics, they only partnered with the event a few weeks before it occurred, so there was a lack of promotion and advertising. Next year they plan to participate again, utilizing a longer lead-time to get the word out. The feedback regarding the Veteran Student Services department has been excellent, Weiser said, both on campus and on the various bases where the university has a presence. He's personally visited 21 of the 40 educational centers, and believes it's important for students far from Saint Leo's campus to see an actual person and feel like the department is in their corner and attending to their needs. And they're able to accomplish that by utilizing the strong bonds they all share, as well as their familiarity with the unique challenges and sacrifices active military and veteran students experience. "I always preface this by saying I mean no disrespect to anybody with a clinical license or degree," Weiser said. "But there's a bond between veterans that no other modality or no other relationship can touch, particularly between combat veterans." FRED BELLET/PHOTO The Oct. 4 Mud Run raised money for Saint Leo University's Veteran Student Services. The department provides support and resour ces to help military personnel adjust to student life.

A story published in Oct. 15 editions of The Laker/Lutz News had an incorrect name for the church. By Michael Hinman email@example.com No one could ever accuse Pat Mulieri of simply following the herd. Two months ago, she took a stand in the Republican primary, endorsing underdog Bob Robertson from a group of candidates looking to replace her on the Pasco County Commission. Robertson lost the primary, so that left the door open for Mulieri to choose yet another underdog one that is not even a Republican. Although she stopped short of giving her official endorsement, Mulieri has at least thrown her support behind the Democrat in the county commission District 2 race: Erika Remsberg. It also marked the second time Mulieri chose not to go with the race's frontrunner at least in terms of finances Republican Mike Moore. "I met with Erika," Mulieri told The Laker/Lutz News. "She is bright, knowledgeable and caring. We have quite a bit in common," including being from New York, and earning master's degrees from New York-based schools. Mulieri also liked the fact Remsberg is a teacher, who works as a liaison to homeless children. "The next years, there will be many exciting changes in Pasco," Mulieri said. "The new commissioners have to be ready to do the job. She will respond to citizens and work to solve problems. I believe she will keep learning. She may not have all the answers, but will work to resolve issues." Remsberg said she was humbled by Mulieri's backing. "Pat has told me she is supporting me, and that she and (husband) Jimmy are both voting for me," Remsberg said. "I spent a couple hours with her at (Pasco County Animal Services) talking about the county, talking about the commission, and county goals." Remsberg has received help from another former commissioner as well, Michael Cox. Cox was the last Democrat to serve on the board but was ousted in 2010 by Henry Wilson Jr. Wilson lost his seat in August in an open primary against another Republican, Mike Wells Jr. While she won't name names, Remsberg said others from across the aisle are boosting her as well. "I am getting more support from Republican voters," she said. "I believe that my bipartisan message is resonating with people from both parties." Moore, who out-spent Remsberg more than 19-to-1 in the campaign, said last week in a statement that he is honored to receive the support of many government and community leaders, listing nearly 20 of them. They included Pasco County sheriff Chris Nocco, state Sen. Wilton Simpson who also has made sizable contributions to Moore's campaign and groups like the Pasco County Professional Firefighters Local 4420, and West Central Florida Police Benevolent Association. Moore has raised just under $170,000 in his race to succeed Mulieri, while Remsberg has pulled in a little less than $9,000. In the most recent reporting period ending Oct. 10, Moore raised $3,625, including $2,000 from development-related donors. Remsberg raised $650 that same period, including $500 from IBEW Local Union 915 in Tampa. The differences between Democrat and Republican did not faze Mulieri in deciding to support Remsberg, the retiring commissioner said. "We may have some philosophical differences, but she will be the people's commissioner, and that is needed," Mulieri said. "Someone to listen, find answers, and realize that commissioners work for the citizens. They are our boss."

Home Healthcare Options James H. Willis III Strategies for Successful Retirement Kathy Scruggs Keller Williams Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce Member By B.C. Manion email@example.com It's a familiar scene in movies and in television shows about high school football teams in small towns. The stands are filled with the locals. A lot of the spectators there don't have a player on the team from their family but it's their team anyway because they attended the high school or live in the community. "You know the movies, when you see Texas football? It's like that," said Pasco High School principal Kari Kadlub. "The community support is amazing." The stadium is the place to be when Pasco High has a football game, Pasco County Schools planning director Chris Williams said. "I didn't realize it until I moved to Dade City, but the Friday night game, everybody goes there," he said. "It's a community event. It's not one of these things where only the parents go." "It's a culture," agreed state Sen. Wilton Simpson, who graduated from Pasco High in 1984. His mother also is a graduate of the school, as are his wife and daughter. His son will graduate from there next year. "All of the Simpsons have come through here," he said. Some spectators have been regulars at the games for decades, Kadlub said. One group of sisters has been Pasco High fans for about a half-century. "They literally sit on the track with their lawn chairs," she said. Part of the attraction is the team itself, said Simpson, who recently spearheaded a community effort to help build a concession stand and add new restrooms at the stadium. "We've got good coaching and a good program," he said. Many Pasco High graduates still feel a deep connection with the school, said John Petrashek, director of construction services for Pasco County Schools. "It's a real identification and association," he said. "That's where they went to school. That's where they graduated. That's their school." "There's a lot of pride here," Simpson agreed. "If you come out here (to the concession stand) and look at the boosters cooking, most of them graduated from this school. Some of them (graduated) in the '70s, and some in the '80s." Stadium projects reveal sense of connection to Pasco High The community and Pasco County Schools came together to make the improvements happen. The concession stand built to last for at least 30 years replaces a shed. The stand's professional restaurant-style equipment replaces a portable grill. "I helped raise the funds for the project and was general contractor," said Simpson, who also is head of Simpson Environmental Services, which specializes in asbestos removal, mold remediation, duct cleaning, lead-paint abatement, general contracting and demolition work. On top of that, he owns and operates Simpson Farms, an egg-laying facility based in Trilby that is home to more than 1 million chickens supplying eggs to supermarkets throughout Florida. Tom Lameau, an electrician for Pasco County Schools, did the electrical work on the project. Bobby Correia, also on the district's staff, did the plumbing. A number of other district employees handled other chores during construction. The new concession stand and new bathrooms were desperately needed, Simpson said. Construction began a couple of days after the last school year ended, and work was completed a couple of days before the school's first football game. One portion of the project remains to be done. It involves renovating the restrooms underneath the stadium, Simpson said. That work will start after football season ends. "If you go back to the '80s, the restrooms under the stadium are the same ones as when I was here," he said. Besides benefiting the football crowd, the concession stand provides an avenue to generate revenue for booster programs and local civic groups, Simpson said. "The Kiwanis Club and Rotary Club may use this facility for fundraisers during the year," he noted. The project cost about $275,000, with the school district covering about $75,000, and community contributors chipping in the rest. Simpson was humble about his contributions to the effort. "There were a lot of very generous people," he said. "We were just the backstop." The school celebrated the new facilities at a dedication ceremony at the Oct. 10 game. Kadlub marvels at the transformation. "You see, over there, that shed?" the principal said, pointing at a small shed across the field. "We called it Ted's Shed." There's no comparison between the old facilities and what's there now. Not only is the concession stand larger and better looking, Kadlub said, the equipment is safer and allows food to be cooked more quickly. "At halftime, there used to be a really, really long line," she said. Now, patrons can get their food faster. There's a lot to be said for creature comforts. "I was on the fair board for a long time," Simpson said. "As we upgraded our facilities cooking facilities and restroom facilities it was easier to keep a crowd longer." B .C.

Guaranteed. Invisible Fence of Florida 813-854-4014 Florida.InvisibleFence.com They don't have a permanent home yet, but they have lofty goals. They want to open a storefront initially and eventually build their own arts center, where they can put on about a half-dozen productions a year, and offer arts classes and summer drama camps. They've even talked over the possibility of a couple locations with J.D. Porter near Wiregrass Ranch, Melissa VanSchaik said. "We just think there's such a need for it in this area," she said. "There's no entertainment quite like live theater. There's nothing like this in our area that's consistently family friendly passes that love for the arts onto the kids." Ticket prices at places like the Straz Center in Tampa are astronomical, she said. "It's very hard to take a family of five to a show where tickets are $100 apiece." VanSchaik added. The goal is to provide quality entertainment at an affordable price, said Chris VanSchaik, who got involved when Bryan D'Onofrio was drama pastor at Victorious Life Church. The VanSchaiks helped in the dramatic productions there, with Chris building sets and Melissa doing makeup. "It was really a great avenue as a makeup artist to get to explore the world of special effects," said Melissa, a makeup artist, a stylist and a part owner of Eclipse Salon and Spa in Lutz. "Having that creative outlet really fulfilled something within me that would have been dead otherwise." Besides being co-owners of Dreamhouse Theatre, the VanSchaiks are helping with makeup and stage construction, too. Many of the actors have known the D'Onofrios for years. For some, acting has been part of their lives for years. That's true for Timothy Mendoza, 20, who is playing the role of Seymour Krelborn. Mendoza is so serious about acting he aspires to make it his life's work. Gabrielle Dion, 18, has been cast in the role of Audrey. She has never played a lead role, and said she's excited and feels ready. While some are seasoned performers, Phyllis Frey, 48, is making her theatrical debut. The Wesley Chapel resident is an experienced choral singer, but has never attempted acting. "I find it very challenging," Frey said, noting that it not only involves singing, but acting and moving, as well. Jorge Diaz, who teaches acting classes and works as a pest control operator, is playing the role of Orin Scrivello D.D.S. The New Tampa 22-year-old believes he was born to act. "Being on stage, it's like I'm home," he said. "When I'm on that stage, it's like I'm in a different world." Janelle Ankrom, 18, enjoys being able to try on life through a new perspective. "I get to be someone else," the Land O' Lakes resident said. "I get to experience what they would be feeling and something that I would probably not do in my real life." For Grace Spenceley, 18, acting almost is like an out-of-body experience. When she's acting, the Land O' Lakes resident is so attuned to her character that she almost forgets she's there. Lori Littlefield, who is handling many backstage duties, was involved in her first theatrical production when she was 3. "I just love the theater," said the Wesley Chapel woman who now works at Tampa Palms Elementary School. Littlefield will do anything even sweep the floors if it gets her into the theater. Sylvia Roper, 48, who works with preschoolers all day long, has known the D'Onofrios for years. "I'm enjoying performing," she said. Her acting skills come in handy at her day job, too. "I'm a lot of different characters all day long." Jose Sotero, 48, likes the feeling that comes when the actors are performing well. "It's really awesome when you can fit in that part, when you see the audience get connected," the Wesley Chapel pest control operator said. Josiah Lindsay, who is playing eight different roles in the upcoming play, enjoys having an opportunity to learn. The Wesley Chapel 19-year-old told friends he's "playing every non-main character in the show." "I'm literally every extra who has a line," he said. The D'Onofrios know they took a big risk when they decided to pursue their dream, but it's a dream they believe in. "We absolutely love the arts," Darci said. "We want to bring them here. We know that's a need." "We really believe in the power of the arts in music and dance and theater," Bryan added. No matter the outcome of chasing his dream, Bryan D'Onofrio said there's one thing he won't have to regret. "When I'm 75, I'm not going to say, I wish I would have tried that,'" he said. THEATRE from page 1A his grueling treatment for the disease, Keppel continued to attend as many practices and meets as he could. That continued until this past school year when he was forced to retire to focus more on fighting the cancer. It meant stepping down from his longtime role as cross-country coach, too. "He's retired, yet he comes to all the practices, except when he has chemo on Mondays," DeHaas said. "He's not able to bike with the runners anymore, but having him out there has really motivated all of our runners, and they want to win for him." Those trips to practices and meets have become their own inspiration to Keppel. "We're a team, we are a partnership," Keppel said. "They keep plugging away, and I keep plugging away." A recent change in his chemotherapy treatment has allowed Keppel to grow back his hair, his eyebrows, and even his trademark moustache. He has lost weight, but being able to recognize his reflection in the mirror has helped him continue to fight the cancer. "I have good days and bad days, but today was a good day," Keppel said, looking toward his wife Dar, standing nearby. "The last few days were good, but the beginning of the week wasn't so hot. It is what it is, and you just take it one day at a time." And that couldn't be any other way, because it is indeed the Keppel way. KEPPEL from page 1A the 7-Eleven on Fifth. If daytime activities are better for your schedule, Hillbilly Farms at 10325 U.S. 98 in Dade City, will host its annual Harvest Festival Oct. 25 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Hayrides, horseback rides, face painting, pumpkin painting and train rides on the Woodland Express all are on the agenda. Food and other vendors also will be available. If you're looking for something on a weekday morning, The Shops At Wiregrass at 28211 Paseo Drive in Wesley Chapel will have a Halloween event Oct. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon in its parking structure. Around 400 children are expected to attend, with gift bags ready for each of them. Debbie Detweiler, The Shops' marketing director, said the shopping location enjoys putting something special on each year that attracts so many people. "It's just a great opportunity for us to be able to give back to the community and provide free entertainment for families," she said. That free entertainment includes cookie decorating, balloon art, face painting, crafts and a photo booth. There will also be a costume contest for children 11 and younger benefiting the American Cancer Society, with the winner receiving a family four-pack to Legoland. The cost is $15 until the day of the contest, and $20 on the day of the event. Registrations must be completed by Oct. 29 at 10:30 a.m. To register in advance, visit TheShopsAtWiregrass.com. FOR PETS Your four-legged friends can participate in the Halloween fun with Spooky Tails on Oct. 25, an annual event at Parwick Kennels, 22129 Carson Road in Land O' Lakes. Starting at noon, children can enjoy pony rides and face painting, with a police dog demonstration at 1:30 p.m. But it's the pets that go all out for the event, with a costume contest that begins at 2:30 p.m. Each entry gets a free pumpkin and the winner receives $200. Local business booths, raffles and live music round out the information and entertainment. While it's a fun Halloween-themed event, it's also a fundraiser to help pay the bills for police dogs when they retire from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office. It also helps pay for equipment and other supplies for the K-9 Unit. In the past, Spooky Tails has helped pay for a bite suit, which is used in K-9 training drills. For more information about the event, call (813) 949-1687, or visit ParwickKennels.com. HALLOWEEN ALTERNATIVES If your family doesn't celebrate Halloween, or you'd prefer to participate in a faith-based setting, there's fall fun on your schedule, too. Several churches are hosting events on or around Halloween. On Oct. 31, Myrtle Lake Baptist Church, 2017 Reigler Road in Land O' Lakes, will hold a Trunk-A-Treat celebration from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Admission is free, and includes games, face painting, balloons and candy. That same evening, Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church, 2348 Collier Parkway in Land O' Lakes, will host its Trunk or Treat event from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. Children will go from car to car with their trunks and tailgates open in the church's parking lot to collect candy and other treats in this family-friendly environment. Also on Oct. 31, Idlewild Baptist Church, 18333 Exciting Idlewild in Lutz, will have its Light the Night event from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. No costumes are allowed, but there will be games, a hayride and inflatables. The cost is $3 per person or $15 per family, with children under 2 admitted free. HALLOWEEN from page 1A The Laker / Lutz News www.lakerlutznews.com

Downs Blvd. Wesley Chapel (in the Target Shopping Center at the intersection of Bruce B. Downs and County Line Road) 813-994-3050 A perfect tan in less than 15 minutes By Mike Matthew Special to The Laker / Lutz News "Fifteen minutes in our level one beds equal four hours on the beach," says Glen Harrod, owner of The South Beach Tanning Company. "And we'll make sure you don't get a sunburn. We don't want anyone to tan longer than their skin can handle comfortably." "We help our clients determine the length of time for an optimal tan," says co-owner Jill Harrod. "It's important for them to have a pleasant experience. Our initial discussion is designed to help prepare people for tanning. We go over everything, including their type of skin, expectations, choosing the best lotion and the right tanning equipment." South Beach Tanning offers five levels of ultraviolet tanning and also a sunless spray tan booth. "You'll be hard-pressed to find a better selection of equipment," says Glen. "We've made a tremendous investment in equipment since we acquired The South Beach Tanning franchise for the Tampa market area." The Harrods bought a tanning salon that has been in the same location for eight years before converting to South Beach Tanning Company. This was their first foray into tanning. South Beach is a high quality, familyoriented company that has enabled them to create a salon that met and even exceeded their vision and expectations. Level one tanning beds have built-in surround sound stereo, high-powered body blowers and a large tanning surface. These level one beds often surpass many other salons topof-the line equipment. Level two and three units feature wider tanning surfaces, additional cooling, higher output bronzing lamps and high-pressure UVA facial tanners. Level three units have adjustable UVA facial tanners. Stand-up units are included in the level three package. Levels four and five shower your body with a unique blend of high output UVA bronzing light designed to maximize your tanning experience. These high-pressure unit bronzing lights emit nearly 99 percent UVA light to give you the darkest tan possible. The sunless Versa Spa Pro spray tan unit allows clients to select a combination of solutions for an optimal tan. These stand-up units spray a heated, ultra-fine mist that penetrates and moisturizes the skin. It's a full body spa treatment, not just a simple tinting. People can tan for as little as $18.88 per month. "We use a membership model because it allows the client to come in as often as they like," says Glen. "We use a boimetric fingerprint system to ensure no one else is tanning under your account. This also keeps us in line with Florida guidelines which prohibit a person from tanning more than once per day." "After selecting the proper tanning level, our second focus is making sure they have the right lotion," says Jill. "Lotions make a big difference in tanning. Our lotions are made locally by Devoted Creations in Oldsmar. They are aloe based which increases the quality of the tan as much as 60 percent over water based tanning lotions." South Beach Tanning offers packages to fit anyone's needs. Clients have complete privacy in every room, and every unit is cleaned and sterilized immediately after use. Each employee goes through training and is certified to ensure every client receives the correct advice and new clients don't get overexposed. "We have entire families that tan here together," says Jill. "We get to know the entire family from grandparents to grandchildren. It's a wonderful way to earn a living." Glen and Jill just signed a lease for a second location in St. Petersburg and are negotiating leases for two more locations in New Tampa and Lutz. South Beach Tanning is located at 1221 Bruce B. Downs Blvd., in Wesley Chapel (in the Target Shopping Center at the intersection of Bruce B. Downs and County Line Road).

" --Regarding feature story about Kenny Quayle P OLITICAL A GENDA SEND POLITICAL NEWS TO MHINMAN@LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM CRIST GETS PASCO SUPPORT FROM FASANO Mike Fasano has made no secret his dislike for Gov. Rick Scott. But now he's taking that opposition to television. The Charlie Crist gubernatorial campaign has released a new commercial featuring the Pasco County tax collector and former legislator, taking a shot at Scott while publicly endorsing Crist, who Fasano calls "a good man." Fasano appears in front of the Historic Pasco County Courthouse in Dade City, first announcing he's not only a lifelong Republican, but a Rick Scott appointee Scott named Fasano the tax collector following the death of Mike Olson last year. In the commercial, Fasano says he decided to voice his opinion after he saw "the smears by Rick Scott against Charlie Crist." While he has not always seen eye-to-eye with Crist, Fasano said he was a good governor, working to prevent utility companies from overcharging, cut property taxes and increased education spending. "This Republican is supporting Democrat Charlie Crist," Fasano says at the end of the 30-second ad. The gubernatorial race is said to be too close to call at this point, with just a couple weeks before the Nov. 4 election. Both Crist and Scott have been debating, including one Oct. 15 that created some fireworks in the beginning after Scott refused to take the stage, accusing Crist of violating the debate agreement by including a small electrical fan at his podium. REPUBLICAN WOMEN TO TALK HEALTH The Pasco Federated Republican Women's Club will meet Nov. 7 at 11:30 a.m., at the Fox Hollow Golf Club, 10050 Robert Trent Jones Parkway, in Trinity. Guest will be Mike Napier, a health officer with the Pasco County Department of Health. Cost is $15. For information, or to make a reservation, call Fran Scerbo at (727) 597-3727. KEEP TRACK OF VOTER TURNOUT ONLINE Want to know how many people are voting in the midterm elections? It will all be available online. Pasco County elections supervisor Brian Corley announced that turnout data will be available on the county's website of PascoVotes.com. "Transparency with elections in Pasco County has been, and will continue to be, of great importance for this office," Corley said, in a release. "The posting of voter turnout on our website is an extension of our commitment to openness in the process." The numbers will represent those who have returned their vote-by-mail ballot, and beginning Oct. 25, will include those who have voted early. Turnout will be reported every 10 minutes during early voting and on general election day. Once the polls close at 7 p.m., on Nov. 4, the results will be posted online as they become available. The elections office already has mailed nearly 52,000 vote-by-mail ballots, with new requests being processed daily. Those wishing to request such a ballot can call (800) 851-8754, or visit PascoVotes.com. Early voting begins Oct. 25, and ends Nov. 1. FLORIDA TAXWATCH: BE CAREFUL WITH SURPLUS For the fourth straight year, the improving economy will give state lawmakers a head start on the 2015 budget, but one tax advocacy group is asks they spend it wisely. Economists are predicting that an additional $336.2 million will be available for the next budget, created by additional taxes the state didn't plan for in the most recent budget cycle. "More Floridians are working and paying their taxes, which has enabled our government to receive a budget surplus for the past four years," said Dominic M. Calabro of Florida TaxWatch, in a release. "However, even with a small surplus, it is crucial that lawmakers spend the hard-earned money of Florida taxpayers as carefully as they do for their own families." Another TaxWatch analyst, Kurt Wenner, did say that the surplus will not have a significant effect on the budget. "It is only 1.1 percent of projected general revenue spending," he said. "It is also based on leaving only $1 billion in reserves, much smaller than what recent Legislatures have left." BASSINGER ENDORSES BURGESS San Antonio city commissioner Elayne Bassinger has endorsed Danny Burgess for state House District 38. "In the years that I have known Danny, I have found that he is smart, capable and humble," Bassinger said, in a release. "But what impresses me most is his ability to see the big picture, and to bring a no-nonsense realism to the challenges ahead. Danny is the type of leader we need in Tallahassee to continue to fight to strengthen our economy, reduce unemployment, and make sure that the needs of Pasco County are well represented. Burgess, a Republican, faces Democrat Beverly Ledbetter in the Nov. 4 election.

By B.C. Manion firstname.lastname@example.org When the Dade City Garden Club began selling an annual holiday ornament to raise money for the club, the decoration was simple: a two-dimensional square. That didn't matter. The ornament's theme the Historic Pasco County Courthouse touched a chord among area residents and quickly sold out, recalled Pat Carver, who was involved in getting the ornament sales off the ground. When people bought the ornament, they would say things like, "This was the room where I got married," or, "this was where my mother was a secretary," Carver recalled. The garden club didn't originate the fundraising idea, but it recognized its potential, Carver said. Jackie Preedom, a fellow garden club member, heard about it when she attended a convention. Since then, the ornaments have been popular with the community. "There are people who anxiously look forward to what the next ornament is going to be," Carver said. That's because Dade City is a place where people still feel a connection with each other, and with the town's landmarks and institutions. "We love our community," Carver said. Apparently, the idea of selling an annual ornament to raise money for the club has had staying power the tradition has been going on for two decades now. Proceeds help pay expenses to maintain the garden club's building, grounds and botanical garden to support club projects, according to club member Sally Redden. Those projects include floral, horticultural and environmental programs, flower shows, garden tours, and civic beautification projects. The entire garden club votes on what the ornament should feature. Each is accompanied by a card stamped with a picture of the ornament on the front and contains a brief historic account on the back. This year the garden chose to pay homage to the Pasco County Fair. Like the garden club, the fair has deep roots in the county. Both got their start in 1947. Fairs in Dade City date back to 1915, but there hadn't been any for a long time. The Pasco County Fair evolved from the Pasco's participation in the Florida State Fair, according to the ornament's fact sheet, and was designed to showcase county resources. Rancher D. E. Cannon led the efforts, with the help of Jimmy Higgins, George Nikolai, Bob Williams and Joe Collura. They found a 40-acre tract along State Road 52 and raised $3,500 to purchase the site. The Kiwanis Club and the Chamber of Commerce were instrumental in helping raise the money from local businesses and the community. The first documented Pasco County Fair began on Jan. 20, 1948. Ornaments are available for purchase through garden club members and at the Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce, 14112 Eighth St., in Dade City. The ornaments are $22 each, and checks should be made payable to the Dade City Garden Club. 100% satisfaction guaranteed for spider vein removal.

US 41 and Dale Mabry Apex NORTH TA M PA 3000 M ed i cal Park Dr., S u i te 300 Bruce B. Downs at Fletcher Ave. A gem of a golf course just minutes from Land O' Lakes B y Mi ke M atthew Special to The Laker / Lutz News Ron Padoba has been the proud owner of the Meadow Oaks Golf and Country Club since 1994. The course was originally built in 1984. "People are always telling us they never knew we were here," says Ron. "You can't see the course from the highway." Meadow Oaks is a challenging shorter course 6,030 yards from the back tees. It's not too difficult for beginners, but still challenging enough for experienced golfers. The front nine holes wind through majestic oak trees. Water comes into play on seven of the final nine holes. It's a player friendly course with good conditions centrally located a few miles north of Land O' Lakes. "We'd like to be known as the friendly golf course," says Ron. "A lot of golf courses are in trouble these days, because it's just a business to the owners. We're hands-on owners onsite everyday. The whole family plays. We're passionate about golf." The course is open to the public. A variety of memberships are available at reasonable prices. The course is maintained in a state of tournament preparedness. The greens feature Jones-Dwarf grass. Laura Sanderson, head golf professional, says it's more like a mom and pop shop with a hometown feeling. "We love our staff and take pride in our course," says Laura. "We're constantly looking for ways to upgrade and improve the course. We've probably played every golf course in several counties. We try to integrate the things we like about other courses into ours." Meadow Oaks has a full driving range, warmup areas, an immaculately maintained putting green, and a chipping green with practice bunker. "We're golfers," says Ron. "We look at our course with a golfer's eyes. We're constantly looking toward the future, to things we can do to make this course the very best in the area. This is a constantly changing industry. We're always on the lookout for new ideas." Golf pro Laura Sanderson is a past member of the LPGA and a certified instructor for the AAU Junior Golf program. She teaches the courses at Meadow Oaks for junior golfers ages 17 and under. She is an All-Army European Women's Golf champion and a member of the All-Forces Golf team. "We produce the best course that people can play at a reasonable price," says Laura. "We're successful for a reason, we're doing a lot of things right." Ron grew up in the area and graduated from high school there. Laura was born and raised here. The staff is made up of community people. Most have been working there for years. All of this contributes to the family friendly atmosphere of the club. You'll find a good mix of golfers playing at Meadow Oaks, from beginners to seniors. Mature oak trees abound. The club also hosts tournaments, weddings and charity events. There is a full bar and restaurant where you can relax and enjoy a meal whether you're golfing or not. Meadow Oaks is located approximately 1.5 miles from the Suncoast Parkway interchange (Route 578 / County Line Road). The clubhouse restaurant serves breakfast and lunch every day of the week. Their Friday night fish fry is very popular. Play nine holes and eat, or just come for dinner. They also feature a full-service liquor bar. Meadow Oaks Golf & Country Club is located at 13125 Fairwinds Road in Hudson. Additional information can be found on their website at MeadowOaksCountryClub.com. Their phone number is (727) 856-2878.

More than a third of American households are renting, according to studies, and rental affordability continues to decline. Officials with the Hillsborough County Consumer Protection Agency warn that renters need to be more cautious than ever when looking for rental homes in online classified advertisements. Often, they said, people responding to an online ad for rental properties are instructed to wire funds for a deposit in order to receive the keys. When potential renters request to see the property first, the landlords claim they are out of the country and cannot show the home. Those landlords, officials said, use pictures posted online of homes for sale not rent to create a fake listing. Homeowners selling their homes have been shocked to have victims knock on their doors, intending to move into their new rental home. The Better Business Bureau also suggests renters be on the lookout for these red flags: Deals that sound too good to be true. Scammers often try to lure in victims by listing a rental for a very low price. Check the area for comparable listings, and if the price for the rental property looks suspiciously low, or anything else seems suspicious, walk away. Out-of-the-country landlords. If a landlord is located out of the area and only wants to communicate by email claiming they've relocated for a job or missionary work, don't believe it. Request for a large deposit or upfront money, with no inspection of the property. Never pay any money before a home is thoroughly inspected inside and out. Requests to wire money or send via MoneyGram or GreenDot. Never send money to anyone via wire transfer service, because it's extremely difficult to retrieve if not impossible after the scammers have picked up the funds. Request for personal information for a credit application. Never provide personal information to people online. It can be used to commit identity fraud and steal more money from victims. It is advisable to provide sensitive information only in person. If anyone suspects a scam or that they were victimized in a scam, they can contact the Hillsborough County Consumer Protection Agency at (813) 903-3430. Rental scams are on the rise PHOTOS COURTESY OF KEN BUTLER Scouts to the rescue Ethan Lawton is looking through some colored ribbons to help create a priority list for victims during a drill by the Community Emergency Response Team. The Troop 339 Boy Scout uses the colors to help doctors quickly identify who needs immediate attention, and who might be able to wait their turn in line. Zachary Rolston, a Boy Scout from Troop 339 in Lutz, plays the victim during a recent exercise by the Community Emergency Response Team at the Museum of Science & Industry in Tampa. Rolston and other Scouts helped CERT as part of its graduation exercise in practicing search and rescue techniques.

Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community Sports Community Sports 14A www.LakerLutzNews.com October 22, 2014 By Michael Murillo firstname.lastname@example.org Sometimes it's good to know your schedule in advance. The Pasco-Hernando State College women's volleyball team still has around seven games left on their schedule, but they already know where they'll be next month: Competing in their regional tournament at Cape Fear Community College in Wilmington, North Carolina. The Lady Quistas have already qualified for District P, which covers three collegiate regions. PHSC punched their tournament ticket with a current mark of 29-4. Because they aren't in close proximity with other schools in their region, the team must be .500 or better during the regular season in order to earn a bid into the tournament. They technically qualified back with their 20th win, but have compiled even more victories with both a potent offense and stifling defense to improve on their strong record. Coach Kim Whitney is glad to have gotten tournament qualification out of the way with plenty of games to spare. "We have that expectation for that goal, but once you get into the season, you're not really sure how you're going to match up with your opponents," she said. "It was a big deal for us to get to that point." Part of that uncertainty was the makeup of this year's team. Of the 15 players, 10 are freshmen. And while they were recruited for their ability, the coach said, one never knows how they'll actually perform under pressure. Now it's clear this year's squad will fit in nicely with other teams during Whitney's 11-year tenure at PHSC. The school tends to expect this kind of success each year, and Whitney has the track record to justify those expectations. In her previous 10 seasons as volleyball coach, PHSC qualified for their regional tournament every year. They've reached the National Junior College Athletic Association national tournament four times, and took home their division's national championship in 2010. Earlier in the season, continuing that regional tournament streak was no sure thing. PHSC started their season just 5-3, and were still trying to determine their most effective lineup and how best to match up with their opponents. But those early losses motivated the team, and now the coach thinks the earlyseason struggles were character building and a positive experience for her athletes. She was particularly happy to see them bounce back from a poor game against the College of Central Florida with an excellent one against Hillsborough Community College. "We didn't really play well in that match, and the following night they played phenomenal," Whitney said. "I think it did make us better and stronger." And 15 consecutive wins later, the Lady Quistas were playing more to their potential and sewing up a tournament berth. Freshman Amanda Turley is one of the impact players helping her team reach that potential. Recruited from Franklin High School in Tennessee, Turley accepted a scholarship to play volleyball for PHSC, partially because of its coach. "She was one of the main reasons why I decided to come here," Turley said of Whitney. "She's so smart and knowledgeable about the game, and what we need to do." Part of the coach's plan was to get her young team prepared early in the year and acquire important game experience ahead of their opponents. Whitney purposely scheduled many games at the beginning of the season so they'd have an opportunity to gel as a team and get several college-level matches under their belts while their opponents were still easing into the season. The team also faced Santa Fe College for that school's first-ever home volleyball game. Whitney's team had to perform in a hostile environment with a crowd of around 500 cheering against them. The coach hopes those intangibles will help the Lady Quistas if and when they face adversity on the court later in the year. In the meantime, as the PHSC volleyball team keeps achieving their goals, Whitney keeps creating new ones for them. They reached their first goal, a .500 season, relatively early. Then they were challenged to reach 27 wins. With that accomplished, the coach has a new one: Fewest losses in her tenure as coach. All her previous teams finished the regular season with at least seven losses, she said. The current team has the opportunity to beat that mark and go into their tournament, which begins Nov. 7, with a great deal of momentum. And at that point, she'll probably have a new set of goals to keep her team focused. "When you don't have something you're driving for and you're trying to reach, you lose that vision," Whitney said. Whatever that next goal is, Whitney has a history of success that says she can help them reach it, and a team full of eager players who are listening and ready to do what it takes to accomplish it. "She's really balanced," Turley said of her coach. "She never gets too angry, but is never too calm. She still always has something to tell you, even if we're up by a lot. "I can trust everything that she says." Set for success: PHSC qualifies for tournament COURTESY OF LEN UMHOEFER With a team full of talented freshman athletes like Amanda Turley, Pasco-Hernando State College had to find their chemistry. Wi th a 29-4 record so far, they've found a regional tournament berth as well.

Networking for the event begins at 7:30 a.m., and will include talks about the latest developments in both Tampa Bay and Florida around the emerging small unmanned aerial systems industry, more commonly known as drones. Although it's probably best known for its American military use, the growth of much smaller applications is believed to be on its way to becoming one of the major economic and technological stories of the 21st century, according to a release. Cost to attend is $30 per person. For information, visit online at PascoEDC.com/events, or call (813) 9260827.

The company says it offers wages for positions like foremen and welders at $48,000, while office staff can go as high as $56,000.
