Manion firstname.lastname@example.org Don Porter, whose vision helped transform ranch land into an urban center in Wesley Chapel, has died. He was 73. Porter's family, which owns the sprawling Wiregrass Ranch, sold the land that is now occupied by The Shops at Wiregrass and Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel. The family also donated 60 acres of land for Pasco-Hernando State College's Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, which now occupies about 6 acres of that land. There's also a high school in the community named after the Porter's Wiregrass Ranch. While Porter had a hand in projects of a regional scale, that is not what meant the most to him, said his son, J.D. Porter.

Pasco County commissioner Pat Mulieri recalls when her colleagues were considering approval of The Shops at Wiregrass. She and Commissioner Jack Mariano supported the request, but they needed a third vote, which came from Commission Ted Schrader.

He was a good steward of the land and a southern gentleman." Greg Lenners, general manager of The Shops at Wiregrass, said it was easy to see that Porter was a highly respected man in the community.

Mary Guyer shares some recent crime statistics with Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco. The sheriff has requested an additional $6 million this year, but could be asking for more in coming years, especially as he sets sights on a new district office in the Wesley Chapel/Land O' Lakes area. Sheriff: This year's budget hikes are just the beginning By Michael Hinman email@example.com Sheriff Chris Nocco knows the additional $6 million he's asking for to fund the Pasco County Sheriff's office this year isn't a small amount. But it's just the beginning as local law enforcement starts to fall behind neighbors like Pinellas and Hillsborough counties, and even the much smaller Hernando County. Nocco would prefer his additional funds not be part of any property tax increase, but no matter how the money is raised, his department desperately needs it. "We're already preparing for next year, like how many more deputies we're going to need out on the street," Nocco told The Laker last week. "Our biggest thing right now is that we have to stop losing members. It's hurting us, and it's coming at a very high cost." In a workshop last month with the Pasco County Commission, which sets his budget, Nocco said many of his veteran deputies and managers are leaving for better salaries and benefits with neighboring counties. Despite the commission's attempt to raise salaries in recent years, there just hasn't been enough money to stop the talent bleed. Even worse, he said, the technology used by the sheriff's office is quite outdated, and it's preventing deputies from providing the See SHERIFF, page14 See PORTER, page14

The mall is a popular gathering spot and pulls shoppers and visitors from across the region, especially during the holidays and for special events. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel also issued a statement paying tribute to Porter's contributions. "Don Porter's vision was to transform the Porter Ranch into a Wesley Chapel community centered around family a community with quality health care, education, and recreation services for its residents," hospital officials said. "It was wonderful to work with Don and his family to bring that vision to life. The entire Porter family has been very supportive of the hospital and our programs to improve the health and wellness of the entire community." Katherine Johnson, president of PascoHernando State College, recalled the first time she met Porter. It was her first day as the college's president, and she was being introduced around the community. Those introductions included a lunch with Porter at Saddlebrook Resort. Porter was approachable and she immediately felt at ease, Johnson recalled. "We clicked. We just clicked," she said. At that very first lunch, Porter told Johnson about his vision for higher educational opportunities for students living in the community. The family's later contribution of 60 acres for the campus played an instrumental role in making that vision come true, Johnson said. "Clearly, we would not have been able to have a campus in Wesley Chapel without that family," she said. Beyond helping to bring that vision to life, Porter became a friend and mentor. When Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch opened in January, it signaled the first time in Wesley Chapel history that a student could attend preschool through college without leaving the Wesley Chapel community. When the Porters moved to Wesley Chapel during the 1940s, there wasn't much development in the area. Over the years, the community has evolved, and Porter had a clear vision for the future, Johnson said. When plans were being discussed for the Porter Campus, he envisioned a campus with multi-story buildings. "He wanted an urban, corporate look," Johnson said. Porter is survived by son, J.D., daughter, Quinn Miller and her husband, Matthew, as well as three grandchildren, Johannah, Cooper, and Lillian Jane, of Odessa; and his brother, William H. and his wife, Debby, of Dade City.

But can another animal-based film do the same for an actual horse rescue ranch near Orlando? Michael Bavota says yes, and he's not only the primary writer for the film "The DreamCatcher's Ranch," but he's one of the stars as well. "We were completely inspired by the ranch," Bavota said of DreamCatcher Horse Ranch and Rescue, a large piece of property in Clermont that boards more than 60 rescued horses. "The director and executive producer, Ricky DiMaio, got this idea that he wanted to do a film about what life would be like on the ranch with fictional characters." And DiMaio found Bavota, a retired seafood distributor now living in Zephyrhills, to craft that story. Bavota, in turn, drafted actress and writer Kaylea Grace, and the two spent more than 140 hours writing what would become the story of a family struggling to secure the future of their ranch that's directly in the way of a major highway project. "We worked seven 20-hour days doing this," Bavota said. "We would stay at the director's house in Orlando, starting in the morning, and not finishing until the next morning at 5. We wrote day and night, and it just came out beautiful." Bavota and Grace fell in love with two characters they created, Grandpa Jim and Kelly, and decided the film couldn't go forward unless they could play those roles something DiMaio had no hesitation agreeing to. Yet, until a few years ago, Bavota never imagined himself ever working in front of a camera lens. While he was living in Boston, Bavota learned through a member of his church that a local production of "Arsenic and Old Lace" was casting. "I had no experience, but I was told I should audition anyway," he said. Bavota's work impressed the stage director, who cast him not only as Lt. Rooney, but Mr. Gibbs as well. It was working in film, however, that really appealed to Bavota. There was a freedom of not having to be at the theater each day, and only being allowed to focus on one project at a time. So he worked closely with the Orlando film school Full Sail University, and has appeared in a number of other productions as well, such as "The Business Card," which appeared on the Christian Television Network. The usually clean-cut Bavota is sporting stubble and long hair as he gets ready to start filming "The DreamCatcher's Ranch" this week. The entire production is budgeted for $50,000, small even by independent film standards. But that's because the crew not only has full access to DreamCatcher Ranch, but many of the primary people especially the actors have different crew jobs as well. "What we did is kind of unique," Bavota said. "Everybody on the film got a job to act, and everybody got an extra job to fill in holes wherever we needed it. This is a way to ensure everyone feels they have ownership of what we're doing here." Although the film is fiction, the stories of some of the various rescued horses on the ranch are real. Bavota has fallen in love with one mare, Blac, that the ranch won in an auction for $10 just minutes before Blac was headed off to a meat-packing plant. Others have heartbreaking stories of abuse or abandonment, finding a home in Clermont when no others were available. The ranch itself spends $3,000 a year to care for each horse, Bavota said, with most of those funds recouped by riding lessons and donations. The hope is the film will connect with younger audiences, especially girls, who typically have a fondness for horses, and could help champion the cause of caring for rescued animals. "We want to help the ranch to attract more volunteers and more funds," Bavota said. "We want to attract people who can help the owners expand the ranch, so that they can take care of even more rescue animals. And we want to give them a story that will make them stop and think." The cast and crew of "The DreamCatcher's Ranch" are still raising money for the production through the online crowdfunding site Indiegogo. And the hope is to have the film completed by winter so that it can start appearing in film festivals as early as Christmas. To donate to the project, visit tinyurl.com/DreamCatcherRanch.

Enjoy your summer: Avoid a trip to the ER By B.C. Manion email@example.com If you've been outdoors lately, no doubt you've observed that Florida's steamy days of summer have arrived with a vengeance. You also may have noticed there are a lot more kids riding bicycles in the street, splashing around in pools, and hanging off equipment at the local playground. The roads are busier, too. Cars and trucks snake toward the beach, and families have packed up to hit the road for vacation. There are a lot more people firing up their backyard grills and having picnics at parks, too. Summer and its pastimes can offer a pleasant break, but is also can lead to illnesses or injuries, prompting unwanted trips to the local emergency room. There are ways, though, to lower your risk of getting sick or injured. Three physicians from Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel and St. Joseph's Hospital-North shared their observations about the types of summer injuries that typically arrive at their emergency departments, and they offered suggestions to help people avoid the need for medical care. On the road "We see increased motor vehicle accidents," said Dr. Javier Gonzalez, assistant medical director of the emergency department at the Zephyrhills hospital. Wear a seat belt, he added, because it reduces injuries and save lives. It's important to safeguard children, too. Be sure they have the appropriate type of protection, such as car seats or childrestraint chairs, he said. Head injuries tend to increase in the summer, too, because of greater use of bicycles, skateboards and in-line skates, Gonzalez said. Be sure to wear helmets and make sure they fit properly, he said. Also, be sure the chinstrap is strapped beneath your chin to help protect the side of your head. Use wrist guards to help prevent injuries, too. "A lot of these people wear helmets, but when they fall, they put their hands down first, so they get a lot of wrist injuries," Gonzalez said. In the water The importance of water safety cannot be overstated. "In Florida, a lot of people have pools. Make sure they have gates," Gonzalez said. Constant vigilance is required when children are in or around water, he added. "Don't take a break to get on the phone. I hear that all of the time, I just went out for a second to speak to somebody or to pick up the phone.' Before they know it, two minutes have passed by and the child is dead at the bottom of the pool." At public pools, be sure the child is within view of the lifeguard, Gonzalez said. Drownings at the beach often result from swimmers getting caught in riptides, so be sure to swim across the current, not against it. "Always wear a life vest, as well, if you are doing activities like jet skiing," he said. It's also wise to do so when you're cruising in a boat. Besides the potential for drowning accidents, there are other risks associated with the water, Cordero said. Diving accidents can cause serious neck injuries, she said. When someone gets hurt diving, it's important to get them out of the water to make sure they're breathing, said Dr. Katrina Cordero, associate medical director of the emergency room at St. Joseph's HospitalNorth. Then, make sure they keep their neck still until help arrives. Enjoying the outdoors When you're having a cookout or picnic, pay attention to how long the food has been sitting out, Gonzalez said. Some foods must be refrigerated, and if they are left out too long, it can cause people to become ill. Store uncooked meats in separate coolers to avoid issues with cross Continued on next page Dr. Michael Longley Dr. Katrina Cordero Dr. Javier Gonzalez Water Safety Tips Never leave a child unattended at a pool or a spa. Teach children basic water safety skills. Keep children away from pool drains, pipes and other openings. Have a telephone nearby to enable a quick call to emergency agencies. If a child is missing, check the pool or spa first. Learn CPR. Install a 4-foot fence around the perimeter of the pool with a self-closing, self-latching gate. Having life-saving equipment such as life rings or floats available and easily accessible. For information, visit PoolSafely.gov.

All three doctors said drinking water is important to avoid dehydration. "There's a misconception that you can actually keep up with your hydration once you're outside, or once you're doing the activity," said Dr. Michael Longley, medical director of the emergency department at the Wesley Chapel hospital. "The reality is you really need to pre-hydrate. Drink a lot either the night before or a couple of hours before you're going to be outside. "You're losing water with every breath you take, you're losing water with the heat itself. You're losing water with sweating and you're losing water with the activity that you're doing. It's compounded and there's just no way to keep up if the tank isn't full to begin with," Longley said. How much you need to drink varies based on your size. An adult should drink a liter or two before they go out. A child should drink about half of that, Longley said. To help people drink enough water, Longley offers this piece of advice: "I tend to tell kids and adults, alike, to add a little extra salt to their meal. It drives the thirst. It helps the muscle function and it helps you to hold in a little of the water, as well." People who suffer from heat cramps, heat stroke and heat exhaustion haven't hydrated before they go outside, Longley said. Often, people don't realize how hot they are because they've been out in the sun for hours, take a dip and feel a cool breeze. Sunburn is a problem, too, St. Joe's Cordero said. People often underestimate the intensity of the sun here. "They fall asleep on the beach," she said, and when they wake up, they have painful sunburn. The same thing can happen when people are out working in the yard and haven't applied sunscreen, she said. They get busy and forget how much sun exposure they've had. Cordero also offered this tip to avoid becoming dehydrated: Carry a bottle of water or Gatorade around with you, to remind yourself to drink. Some people like to quench their thirst with a beer or another alcoholic drink. "Beer is OK," Cordero said. But "don't let it be your only means of hydration." Rockets' red glare The increased amount of recreation during summer months tends to result in more people visiting the ER with injuries, Longley said. "We see a lot more broken bones." It's also a time of year when there's an uptick in fireworks injuries, which are typically unique injuries that require expert medical attention. "Explosions can cause all sorts of tissue damage locally," Longley said. "Particles can be inhaled. They can be embedded in the eye." The injuries can get complicated quickly. "Something that seems simple can be way more complex a few hours later," Longley said. Sometimes the steps taken immediately after a fireworks injury can make a big difference, Cordero said. If a fingertip is blown off, for example, it's important to try to find the fingertip, she said. It should be placed in a cloth that has been dampened with water, placed in a plastic bag, and then all put into a larger bag that has some ice in it. "You don't want any direct contact with ice," Cordero said. "That could cause some tissue damage." Tips for a safer summer Drink plenty of water to avoid dehydration. Start drinking water before you head out for the day, and keep drinking it throughout the day to stay hydrated. If you're grilling, be sure to cook your meats thoroughly. Also, do not allow children to be near hot grills. If you're having a gathering, be sure to keep foods that need refrigeration in coolers until shortly before you need them. Keep them away from direct sunlight and don't leave them out for more than an hour. Wear helmets while riding bikes, skateboarding or rollerblading. Wear wrist guards, too. Be vigilant when there are children around water. A happy gathering can turn tragic within minutes. Wear sunscreen to avoid sunburn. Be sure to reapply it if you decided to take a dip in a pool or at the beach. Wear life jackets on boats and seat belts in cars.

"Many of us will experience a mental health issue at some point in our life grief, loss, loneliness, depression, addiction. We're here to help people work through their mental health concerns." North Tampa Behavioral Health provides a non-institutional environment on 16 acres of wetlands and forest off of State Road 56, east of The Shops at Wiregrass. The campus offers peace and quiet without urban distractions. "We want to set the standard for the treatment of behavioral health and addiction disorders," says Jim. "We have a unique half-day, partial hospitalization program and an intensive outpatient program for the treatment of adults and seniors with mental health and substance abuse conditions." NTBH is more than just a productive member of the community. They are making their facilities available for various support group meetings. The National Alliance on Mental Illness currently provides free support group meetings on the first and third Thursday of each month at 7 p.m., for families experiencing mental health issues or who have friends receiving mental health care. "We currently have 143 employees contributing to the economic health of the region," says Jim. "The resources we use come from the local community as much as possible. We are also a provider working to enhance mental health awareness and wellness of the citizens of Pasco County." "Our treatment focuses on the whole person," says Jim. "We believe that physical health and nutritional health play a role in mental health, and we address that daily here." They have an indoor gym with stationary bicycles, workout bags and a basketball court. They also host yoga classes in the gym. Outdoors they have a basketball court, a walking path and spaces to relax, read and converse. There are also a number of spacious community rooms and a cafe with a selection of nutritious foods available during all meals. "Our goal is to bring together mental and physical health approaches to psychiatric therapies founded on the most current principles of patient safety," says Jim. "We are a progressive facility. For example, there are no mechanical restraints for patients, which is rare for a psychiatric hospital. Suggestions from our patients are continually improving our facility." All programs are group-oriented and developmentally appropriate to the client. Inpatient care is shortterm. Outpatient care may go on longer depending on the client's needs. The partial hospital program is 5 days per week for 5 hours per day. The intensive outpatient program is 3 days per week for 3 hours per day. They became a Baker Act facility in February 2014 and have since been working closely with law enforcement and local hospitals to treat involuntary patients who are deemed a threat to themselves or others due to mental health or substance abuse issues. North Tampa Behavioral Health has been very successful to date. They are continuing to develop relationships with local hospitals, independent practitioners, clinics, colleges and chambers of commerce. They are in the process of starting an alumni group for people who have been treated at the facility as another way to further support the community. Call them for an assessment or referral.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point recently had a grand opening and ribbon cutting ceremony for its new Graduate Medical Education Center. Located at 14108 Glacial Drive in Hudson, the center's grand opening included a white coat ceremony for the first class of the American Osteopathic Association Internal Medicine Residency program. Dr. Michael Strobbe, the internal medicine program director for the association, presided over the ceremony. Bayonet Point first announced the acceptance for an internal medicine residency program with the association last August. This is the hospital's first step in developing graduate medical education residency programs in a logical progression as Bayonet Point continues to expand its tertiary and specialty programs, hospital officials said. "Developing a graduate medical education program is not an easy task, or one to be taken lightly," said Bayonet Point chief executive Shayne George, in a release. "It is extremely challenging, and requires longterm commitment and dedication to the rewarding honor and privilege to train future physicians." That includes meticulous governing structures, policies and procedures, training curriculums, faculty training and more, George added. Students in the new program included second-year resident Dr. Katie Groff from Lake Erie College of Medicine, as well as several first-year residents: Dr. Camille Alfonso, Dr. Jonathan Lind, Dr. David Otis, Dr. Giles Roberts, Dr. James Shepard and Dr. Woody Taves.

P OLITICAL A GENDA SEND POLITICAL NEWS TO MHINMAN@LAKERLUTZNEWS.COM MULIERI ENDORSES ROBERTSON Pasco County commissioner Pat Mulieri is retiring from her job, but she already knows who she's voting for to replace her: Bob Robertson. Robertson, a Zephyrhills financial analyst, is in a primary battle with former state Rep. Ken Littlefield and Wesley Chapel entrepreneur Mike Moore. Mulieri told The Laker/Lutz News she first met Robertson through his work with the homeless, and later learned his wife was an outreach coordinator at a church in Zephyrhills. "He believes, like me, in giving a hand up to those in need," Mulieri said. "Being a commissioner is a steep learning curve. Bob has done his best to prepare himself for the job. I believe he will listen to citizens, study the issues, and work to bring opportunities hope to Pasco." Mulieri went public with her support on June 29 when she wished Robertson a happy birthday on Facebook, adding "I support you 100 percent. You will be a great commissioner." The winner of the August primary will face Land O' Lakes Democrat Erika Remsberg in the November election. MOBILE HOURS FOR ROSS U.S. Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland, will host mobile office hours Aug. 12 from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., at the Lutz Library, 101 W. Lutz Lake Fern Road in Lutz. Other dates in Lutz include Sept. 9, Oct. 14 and Dec. 9. For more information, call (863) 6448215, or (813) 752-4790. CORCORAN ENDORSES MOORE Pasco County Commission candidate Mike Moore has received an endorsement from future House Speaker and current Land O' Lakes state Rep. Richard Corcoran. "Mike Moore has spent his career building businesses and creating jobs," Corcoran said, in a release. "It's vital to have more leaders who can help make government more accountable and more efficient. His commitment to his family and to our community shines through, and is a good example for us all." Moore is seeking the Republican nomination to replace retiring commissioner Pat Mulieri. He is locked in primary with former state Rep. Ken Littlefield and Zephyrhills financial analyst Bob Robertson. The winner of the August primary will face Democrat Erika Remsberg in November. REALTORS HELP GET THE VOTE OUT Pasco County elections supervisor Brian Corley is thanking the Pasco County Board of Realtors Associations for the group's help in registering and updating voters around the county. "In the exciting but stressful time of purchasing a new home and relocating, things like registering to vote or update your address are often overlooked," Corley said, in a release. Corley's office provides packets containing information like a voter's guide and a registration form. "In the upcoming 2014 election cycle, proactive initiatives like Move the Vote are low-cost ways to encourage voters to prepare in advance of election day," Corley said. MOORE ATTENDS FIRE RESCUE ORIENTATION Pasco County Commission candidate Mike Moore recently attended the fifth annual Fire Operations 101 Orientation with representatives from Pasco Fire Rescue. Moore, who is one of four candidates looking to replace the retiring Pat Mulieri in District 2, attended the one-day operations orientation, which was sponsored by the Pinellas County Fire Chiefs Association among others. ARMSTRONG APPOINTED TO SWIFTMUD BOARD Gov. Rick Scott has appointed Elijah Armstrong III to the Southwest Florida Water Management District's governing board. Armstrong is a Dunedin attorney with Hill Ward Henderson. He was previously a member of what was then known as the Pasco-Hernando Community College board of directors. If confirmed by the state Senate, Armstrong's term will end March 1, 2018. CHAMBERS GET TOGETHER TO HOST FORUMS The Greater Dade City Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce will host two forums to introduce members to candidates facing off in primary and general elections. The first forum takes place Aug. 4 beginning at 7 p.m., at East Pasco Adventist Academy, 38434 Centennial Road in Dade City. That event will include candidates ranging from the state House to the Mosquito Control Board. The second event will be Oct. 20 beginning at 7 p.m., in the same location, once again including the same races. The chambers will provide two moderators to ask questions. Candidates also will have a chance to set up tables and meet voters beginning each night at 6 p.m. REPUBLICAN CLUB INVITES CANDIDATES The Wesley Chapel Republican Club will host a Republican candidate meet and greet July 10 at 7 p.m., at Wesley Chapel Hyundai, 27000 Wesley Chapel Blvd. Candidates will have a chance to speak for up to three minutes each beginning at 7:30 p.m. The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report The Arc of Florida/Center for Independence is the featured charitable organization for July by the Pasco County Tax Collector. The goal is to raise funds to support those with developmental and other intellectual disabilities in the community. The Center for Independence is the Pasco County chapter of The Arc of Florida, and is a key provider of services to those with a variety of disabilities, according to a release. Services there include residential, daytraining, supported employment, and transportation assistance. "Donations through the check-off program fund services that change the lives of individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities in Pasco County," said Deborah Linton, chief executive of The Arc of Florida, in a release. "There is probably not a person who does not know someone with a disability, whether a family member, friend or neighbor," said county tax collector Mike Fasano, in a release. "The programs offered by the Center for Independence have made the lives of countless individuals better. Your donation of any amount will assist the center to continue providing the highest level of care possible." Customers who wish to support the charity can check off the box on their vehicle registration form to contribute $1 or more to the fund. Cash donations also will be accepted at tax collector's offices around the county, like Land O' Lakes, Dade City, New Port Richey and Gulf Harbors. The promotion runs throughout July.

Convenient Hours by Appointment: Tues Sat 10:00 am 5:30 pm Accept insurance including Medicare (3931) The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Summer is going to be a busy time for travelers, especially those who hail from Florida. The majority of Florida residents 81 percent plan to take a leisure trip of 50 miles or more over the next three months, according to a new study by AAA. That is a jump of four percentage points from 2013. "This marks the third consecutive year that AAA data shows a steady summer travel season in Florida a positive sign for the travel industry," said Jessica Brady, AAA Travel's spokeswoman, in a release. "Although theme parks, beach getaways and city destinations top 2014's summer travel list, the majority of people haven't finalized their vacation plans." However, travelers who do wait until the last minute to book their hotel, rental car or airline ticket can expect to pay more than those who book weeks in advance, Brady said. The majority of travelers, some 59 percent, say they plan to spend $1,500 or less on travel in the next three months. More than half, or 62 percent, say they will pay for a hotel during a summer vacation. Another 36 percent say they will cut costs by staying with family and friends. Although only 35 percent plan to rent a car this summer, nearly 3-in-5 travelers, or 57 percent, plan to drive at least five hours to get to their destination, or for sightseeing. "Floridians are fortunate because most destinations like beaches and theme parks are within a one-day drive," said AAA spokesman Mark Jenkins, in a release. "Gasoline prices are beginning to let up just in time for the busy summer driving season. Pump prices are not expected to have a negative impact on travel plans." The AAA Consumer Pulse Survey was conducted online among residents living in the Southern Region of the Auto Club Group Florida, Georgia and Tennessee from April 14-21. Some 400 Florida residents were sampled in the survey, which has a maximum margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points. The results also were weighted by gender and age. Summer travel heats up in Florida special events. Florida Hospital Wesley Chapel also issued a statement paying tribute to Porter's contributions. "Don Porter's vision was to transform the Porter Ranch into a Wesley Chapel community centered around family a community with quality health care, education, and recreation services for its residents," hospital officials said. "It was wonderful to work with Don and his family to bring that vision to life. The entire Porter family has been very supportive of the hospital and our programs to improve the health and wellness of the entire community." Katherine Johnson, president of PascoHernando State College, recalled the first time she met Porter. It was her first day as the college's president, and she was being introduced around the community. Those introductions included a lunch with Porter at Saddlebrook Resort. Porter was approachable and she immediately felt at ease, Johnson recalled. "We clicked. We just clicked," she said. At that very first lunch, Porter told Johnson about his vision for higher educational opportunities for students living in the community. The family's later contribution of 60 acres for the campus played an instrumental role in making that vision come true, Johnson said. "Clearly, we would not have been able to have a campus in Wesley Chapel without that family," she said. Beyond helping to bring that vision to life, Porter became a friend and mentor. When Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch opened in January, it signaled the first time in Wesley Chapel history that a student could attend preschool through college without leaving the Wesley Chapel community. When the Porters moved to Wesley Chapel during the 1940s, there wasn't much development in the area. Over the years, the community has evolved, and Porter had a clear vision for the future, Johnson said. When plans were being discussed for the Porter Campus, he envisioned a campus with multi-story buildings. "He wanted an urban, corporate look," Johnson said. Porter is survived by son, J.D., daughter, Quinn Miller and her husband, Matthew, as well as three grandchildren, Johannah, Cooper, and Lillian Jane, of Odessa; and his brother, William H. and his wife, Debby, of Dade City. FILE PHOTOS Members of the Porter family joined Pasco-Hernando State College president Katherine Johnson at the open house and dedication of Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch. From left are J.D. Porter, Bill Porter, Johnson, Don Porter and Quinn Miller. Don Porter memorial service A memorial service for Don Porter has been scheduled for 2 p.m. on July 12 at the conference center at PascoHernando State College's Porter Campus at Wiregrass Ranch, 2727 Mansfield Blvd., in Wesley Chapel. Don Porter, whose vision helped create the building blocks for community life in Wesley Chapel, died July 1. PORTER from page 1 level of service Nocco says residents in neighboring counties receive. For instance, a homeowner who has a mailbox knocked over could easily make a report using an online form if that technology was available to Pasco County residents. Instead, a deputy has to physically go out and make a report, costing valuable time that could be saved otherwise. Even if the salary and technology problems are addressed, the county still has another problem. Many counties average around 1.3 deputies per every 1,000 residents. In Pasco, that number is below one deputy per thousand. Just to catch up with current populations, Nocco needs 150 new deputies. With new deputies, he will need a new district office, too, right where the population is growing the most. "We are going to need many more deputies, and we're going to need a fourth district in the (State Road) 54 corridor," Nocco said. "We need to have a stronger presence in the Land O' Lakes and Wesley Chapel area. Deputies who serve that area right now are based out of Dade City, and there has to be something much closer to serve those needs." Many of these issues aren't even a part of this year's proposed budget increase, which would bring the sheriff's office budget close to $100 million. And elected officials are listening. During a recent workshop, commissioners admitted taxes in Pasco were far too low, affecting the government's ability to serve its people. With proposed budget increases from other departments needed as well, it seems impossible to keep taxes at the same level they were last year. "I am for having a better-funded county government," Commissioner Kathryn Starkey said recently. "Local government is not the same as our federal government, where I think there is a lot of waste. We have no hidden money, we have no extra money. We are all scraping by barely." But how much of those extra funds should go into the sheriff's office is still a question for the commission, which has been weighing Nocco's request carefully. Public safety may be a key measure to stimulate growth, but so is having a building department that can maintain a seamless working relationship with developers so that major projects, like a new Amazon.com facility, are not lost to neighboring counties, Commissioner Ted Schrader said. "We want to continue to support public safety, but a lot of our other departments have suffered because of the financial constraints that we have been under," Schrader said during a workshop last month. Nocco is convinced the commission will help him with most, if not all, of his budget requests this year. But if the increase was tough to swallow this year, future requests might be even more difficult. Yet, the sheriff's office is willing to help in those areas, too, Nocco said. For instance, the call for more code enforcement can actually be handled by a group of volunteers trained and managed by the sheriff's office. "We will train them and provide them the tools they need to start writing code enforcement violations and target high-crime areas," Nocco said. "This will let us focus on areas where abandoned or neglected structures are used over and over again for drug houses and other crime." In all, there is a lot more the sheriff's office can do to help other departments, Nocco said, and soften the impact of potentially higher taxes to residents. "We are not wasting taxpayer dollars. Instead, we are very efficient," he said. "I know our commissioners are being pulled in a thousand different directions, but I also think they realize that public safety is a priority."

Troopers want cars to move over on busy highways The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report There are two words that can mean the difference between life and death on Florida's busy highways: move over. It's a phrase the Florida Highway Patrol is sharing as much as it can, letting drivers know that when someone is stopped along a busy roadway, they need to move over, or slow down. If not, it could not only result in a ticket, but also injury or death of whoever might be stopped because of an accident. "Our troopers are out there every day working traffic stops and crash scenes along busy highways with cars speeding past them, often just feet away," said Col. David Brierton, director of Florida Highway Patrol, in a release. "And every day, they face the real possibility of never going home to their families because someone fails to obey the move over law." The law, according to FHP: Protects law enforcement officers, emergency workers and tow truck drivers stopped along roadways while doing their jobs. Requires motorists to move over when a patrol car, emergency vehicle or tow truck is stopped on the side of a road with lights flashing. If such movement cannot be safely accomplished, motorists must slow down to a speed 20 mph below the posted speed limit. Enforcing the law is important to troopers, especially since FHP lost one of its own this past May when Trooper Chelsea Richard was struck and killed by a vehicle while investigating an accident. The tow truck driver, as well as another pedestrian, was also killed in the crash. For more information on the move over law, visit tinyurl.com/MoveOverFlorida. County approves middle school site for Learning Gate By B.C. Manion email@example.com Learning Gate Community School has received Hillsborough County's blessing to locate its classes for seventhand eighthgraders in the former Hand-in-Hand Academy building near downtown Lutz. Land use hearing officer James Scarola approved Learning Gate's request to use the location at 207 Lutz Lake Fern Road for its middle school-level students. The approval, issued June 29, limits the enrollment, however, at the Lutz Lake Fern Road location to 205 students. That's 45 fewer students than the school initially requested. The school agreed to reduce its request after Mike White, president of the Lutz Citizens Coalition, objected to the higher number. At a June 2 public hearing, White told Scarola the site was not conducive for that many students. White also said the community has no problems with the school, simply with the proposed enrollment, according to the hearing officer's June 29 ruling. During a recent interview, White said the school also agreed to sign a private agreement with the Lutz Citizens Coalition pledging that it would never ask for a variance to allow more students at the site. The 4-acre site previously had been approved for 175 kindergarten through fifth-grade students. Of those, up to 85 were allowed to be in child care. The property, which is included in Hillsborough County's Landmark and Historic Archeological Resources Inventory, contains a church that was built in the 1940s and two educational buildings that were constructed during the 1960s. No additions or expansions are requested in Learning Gate's application. The county's transportation department reviewed the request and concluded the school will not impact traffic on nearby roads. The school is expected to generate 225 trips during the peak morning hours, and 151 during the afternoon peak hours. However, the transportation department has determined that a detailed traffic study will be needed and it may show the need for such improvements as paving, widening and construction of a turn lane. Learning Gate is a nationally recognized charter school that operates at two locations in Tampa. Its campus for kindergarten through sixth grade is at 16215 Hanna Road, and its campus for seventh and eighth grade is at 15316 N. Florida Avenue. Even though Learning Gate applied for permission to operate a school at the Lutz Lake Fern location, no additional information is available about Learning Gate's plans. Brian Erickson, president of Learning Gate's board, said in an email that "at this time, it would be inappropriate for anyone to comment. "There are many unanswered questions. We are having ongoing communications with the bank who holds the note, but we are still doing our due diligence on the property," Erickson wrote. B C MANION/STAFF PHOTO Learning Gate Community School has gained approval for using buildings located at 207 Lutz Lake Fern Road to house its seventhand eighth-graders. Even though that hurdle has been cleared, no details are available yet on when or whether the school will make the move to the site.

Outgoing Lutz Guv'na Suzin Carr gets one last chance to share her popular pose as she makes her way through the town's Fourth of July parade. There were plenty of fire trucks during the Lutz Fourth of July parade, but also at least one Dalmatian, like this one from the GFWC Lutz-Land O' Lakes Woman's Club. One young girl jumps in excitement as the North Tampa-Lutz squadron of the Civil Air Patrol makes its way down Lutz Lake Fern Road as part of the Lutz Fourth of July celebration last weekend.

Two squads, the Grey Team and the Gold Team, each claimed the gold medal in their respective divisions at the Special Olympics Florida State Summer Games, May 16-17 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex in Lake Buena Vista. The Grey Team is a Division 2 team with seven players per side, while the Gold Team is a Division 3 team with five players per side. Divisions are set up based on team skill levels. Each team is unified, meaning athletes play alongside partners to help them and provide support. The Gold Team has four players and three partners playing at one time, while the Grey Team has three players and two partners. While the players are happy to have achieved their goal, their longtime coach, Vicky King, is equally proud. "It was a great accomplishment. Our teams have trained really hard this year," she said. The Gold Team had little knowledge of soccer before they started playing together a few years ago, King explained. For their first two years playing soccer, they didn't score a single goal. Now they understand the game, talk about it, and claimed the gold medal in their division. And the Grey Team has a chance to continue playing at an advanced level. They're eligible to compete at the World Games, and if selected, they'll go to Los Angeles to take part next July. The keys to success are the same as they would be for any championship team, King said. Hard work, a balanced squad, and an emphasis on fitness and skills led the teams to victory. But the Special Olympics is about more than competition. Land O' Lakes resident Terry Ahearn said his son, Andrew, truly enjoys being a part of the team and competing in the games. "He loves it. It's been really good for him, too," Ahearn said. Andrew has participated in Special Olympics for years, and plays soccer for the Grey Team. He has autism, and is high-functioning. His father said that playing has given him more confidence, and even though he can be hard on himself, he always has praise and support for his teammates. While playing on a unified team allows the athletes to get on-field support, it doesn't affect the team dynamic. Ahearn said once they start playing, everyone is working toward the same goal. "It doesn't matter if they're playing basketball, if they're bowling or playing soccer, you really can't tell the difference between any of the kids," he said. "They're just like any other team." And like any other athlete, Andrew is happy to have claimed the gold for his team. "It feels good," he said. "We did our best." The midfielder said participating in various sports Andrew also competes in bowling, basketball and flag football and having fun are the best things about the games. He was named Athlete of the Year for Pasco County. For his father, coaches like King are some of the real highlights of participating in the Special Olympics. The teachers and coaches make the experience more valuable for the participants, he said. "I'm proud of (Andrew) and how he competes and what he's learned, but I'm also proud of the teachers and the coaches," Ahearn said. "Because he would not be where he is right now if he didn't have the teachers and coaches that gave so much of themselves. "To do what these kids are doing and to reach them takes a special person. I could not say enough good things about them." For more information about the Special Olympics, visit SpecialOlympicsFlorida.org.

Best of all, our comprehensive service costs no more than what most homeowners pay out to multiple providers. How do sealants work? Dental sealants fill in the deep crevasses on the chewing surface of permanent teeth. This blocks food particles that could get caught in the teeth causing cavities. The application is fast and comfortable; it can effectively protect teeth for many years, saving you the cost of more expensive fillings down the road. Though recommended for children they are also effective on adults in the prevention of decay. For a child a sealant is easy compared to needing a filling, no anesthetic is required for a sealant. Most dental insurance companies cover sealants up to early teens.

Experience is the Best Medicine www.LakerLutzNews.com July 9, 2014 21 DUSEK NEW HONORARY MAYOR The votes are in, and so is the money. Pasco County has a new mayor, and it's Terri Dusek. Dusek, a local real estate agent, ran a campaign of "Paying it Forward Through Music." She was one of several people and businesses honored at the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce annual dinner last week. Dusek also won Ambassador of the Year. The dinner included the installation of the new chamber president, Charlene Ierna, of Ierna's Heating & Cooling. She succeeds Denny Esber, who also is retiring from the board along with director Gary Loman. Before he left, Esber handed out his President's Award to Tony Masella of OurTownFla.com for his outstanding service to the chamber and the community. Hungry Harry's Bar-B-Que was the Large Business of the Year while All Smiles Tampa Bay won Small Business of the Year. A Focus on Fitness was New Business of the Year, while Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco was Non-Profit Member of the Year. If honorary mayor and the chamber's top ambassador wasn't enough, Dusek topped a successful season as Chamber Member of the Year as well. The Community Service Award was a tie between April Saland of A.L. Saland Insurance Solutions, and Pam Oakes of Pasco International Tourism. Finally, the Central Pasco Chamber honored the lifetime service of Larry Delucenay and retiring Pasco County commissioner Pat Mulieri. LAKE FRANCISCO PLAZA SOLD A 1980s-era shopping center along Land O' Lakes Boulevard has a new owner. Robert and Elizabeth Ferrer purchased Lake Francisco Plaza at 1900 Land O' Lakes Blvd., in Lutz, early last month for $1.3 million. That was nearly $200,000 less than what Lake Francisco Plaza LLC out of Georgia paid for the same 121,000-squarefoot strip mall in 2005. The center, near where U.S. 41 and Dale Mabry Highway split just north of the Hillsborough County line, has spaces for retail and office, according to Pasco County property records. The largest is 54,000 square feet. Lake Francisco Plaza has been part of the Yount family since the beginning in 1984, with even the company that purchased it in 2005 listing Thomas C. Yount as one of its managers. Pasco had a strong quarter in property sales of transactions more than $1 million. The period between March and June, not including any late filers, saw $72.8 million change hands, compared to $37.2 million sold during the same quarter in 2013, according to county property records. PINCHERS CRAB SHACK OPENS AT THE SHOPS Pinchers Crab Shack, a seafood restaurant chain based out of Bonita Springs, has opened its 10th location at The Shops at Wiregrass in Wesley Chapel. Dacie Broshears will manage the restaurant, located at 28330 Paseo Drive, Suite 185. Broshears also managed what had been the closest Pinchers location before in Lakewood Ranch near Bradenton. Pinchers started in 1997 at a six-table restaurant in 1,500 square feet of space in Bonita Springs. It has grown to 10 locations and more than 500 employees, stretching form Wesley Chapel in the north to Key West. For information, visit them online at PinchersCrabShack.com. MARKET STRUGGLING TO GRAB FIRST-TIME HOMEBUYERS STILL Condominium sales in the Tampa Bay region are down, but prices are on the rise as home sales continue their long recovery in the state. The median sales price of a condominium in the region, which includes both Pasco and Hillsborough counties, was $110,000 in May, up nearly 13 percent from the year before, according to a new report from Florida Realtors. The number of closed sales dropped nearly 10 percent, however, to 1,256 units. Single-family home sales climbed a little more than 1 percent last month in the area, while median sale prices slipped about the same percentage, to $156,000. Statewide, condo sale prices rose nearly 14 percent to $145,000, while home prices ticked up another 4 percent to $180,000. The market still struggles to attract firsttime homebuyers. "Going forward, we're concerned about affordability," said John Tuccillo, chief economist for Florida Realtors, in a release. "In particular, the difficulty of first-time buyers to access mortgage financing, and the lag in providing a much-needed supply of new homes may hold back Florida's housing market." AVALON PARK WEST WELCOMES D.R. HORTON D.R. Horton has recently completed construction of its first model home at Avalon Park West in Wesley Chapel. The model is located in the Cypress Village neighborhood of the community, where the homebuilder is planning 56 new houses. The company will offer homes ranging from 2,045 to 3,576 square feet, according to a release, with prices starting at $270,000. Avalon Park West is located just off State Road 54, east of Interstate 75. SCHOOL DISTRICT HOSTS JOB FAIR The Pasco County school district is partnering with county agencies and local chambers of commerce to host a job fair July 9 from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., at Land O' Lakes High School.

We will be the same size as many daily newspapers. WHY THE CHANGE? 1. Credible newspaper; serious local news A traditional size communicates even more that we're credible newspapers committed to reporting serious local news. 2. More and bigger photos Photos help us better tell stories about our community. 3. Two Sections A new B Section becomes a second front page to give more prominence to feature stories. It also lets us use the back page of the A Section for a high-profile sports section. 4. Easy-To-Find Classifieds Our new B Section will house all classified pages, including our popular Best In Small Business Directory. 5. More advertising circulars The larger format allows us to accept more advertising circulars important to readers as more national retailers open stores in our community. 6. Bigger ads Ad sizes will be 25% bigger than current sizes. And bigger ads mean advertisers can add more offers and have more space to promote their business or service. WE'RE GETTING BIGGER AND WE'RE EXCITED! Extra news in an EXTRA LARGEformat BEGINNING www.LakerLutzNews.com July 9, 2014 28
