Dale Mabry Hwy Ste 101 Lutz, FL (Corner of Sunlake & Dale Mabry)I Will Aggressively Fight To Protect Your Legal Rights HOLLIDAY KARATINOSLAW FIRM, FREEHearing Consultation with University of South Florida degreed Audiologist B INSIDE, PAGE 1B By Kathy SteelePasco County commissioners are in a quandary about the fate of the proposed Wiregrass Sports Park. Should they try again to work a deal for a world-class sports complex or build a district park for local sports teams? Commissioners voted 4-1 on March 10 to take a wait-and-see approach with a feasibility study that will gauge the market for a sports complex with the potential to draw national tournaments, and yield millions in tourism tax dollars. The results also could show that the county’s money is better spent on a park that caters to local sports teams. The study is intended to give county officials, residents and potential park operators an idea of what will work at the park site, located near Bruce B. Downs Boulevard off State Road 56. “We think we’ll get the ability to expedite (the process) because people will understand it better, and we think the quality of applications will improve,” said Richard Gehring, the county’s planning and development administrator. Johnson Consulting Inc., a sports consulting firm with national and international clients, will be paid $35,000 for the study, expected to take less than 12 weeks. The study will include marketing and needs assessments as well as recommendations on development costs, operating and financial responsibilities, and funding options. “I think it’s time to move forward,” said Commissioner Mike Moore. “It’s a positive. People in my district want to see it sooner rather than later.” Commissioner Jack Mariano voted against the study. Instead of spending money on a study, he said county officials should explore why the deal with Pasco Sports LLC to build a multimillion-dollar sports complex fell apart. “I’d like to find out why he (Gary Sheffield) didn’t like the contract,” Mariano said. “We could look at that first.” In December, commissioners dropped plans to partner with Pasco Sports to build a sports complex on 100 acres near The Shops at Wiregrass regional shopping mall. The land is part of more than 200 acres donated to the county by the Porter family. Partners James Talton and former major league baseball player Gary Sheffield had proposed to build 20 ball fields and dormitories on the site. They had envisioned a youth baseball camp that would attract national tournaments and deliver more than $300 million annually in economic impact to the county. According to the agreement, the county would commit between $11 million and $14 million in tourism dollars to the project. But Talton and Sheffield let a deadline pass without delivering on a pledge to provide $3 million for the complex’s design. Other projects, both rumored and real, are competing with the proposed sports complex. Z Mitch LLC had a groundbreaking in February for a major ice hockey and sports complex off Interstate 75 at the State Road interchange in Wesley Chapel. The facility is expected to open in fall 2015 with four fullsize rinks. But the 150,000-square-foot facility will accommodate a wide range of sports including soccer, lacrosse and basketball. Rumors also persist that Hillsborough County may be in line for a new sports facility. Most Pasco commissioners agreed the feasibility study would be a valuable tool in sorting out the county’s options. “It will either validate or invalidate the marketing of the complex and what’s needed in this area,” said Chairman Ted Schrader. “It will give us the confidence to go forward with some sort of park project.”Pasco commissioners approve a study for Wiregrass Sports Park FILE PHOTOCommissioner Jack Mariano By Kathy SteeleJune Wentworth went looking for a pleasant walk around the lake on a sunny morning at Zephyr Park and before she knew it, the 83-year-old found herself in the arms of a dance partner who glided her through the bittersweet memories of Garth Brooks’ “The Dance.” Gospel singer Kris Pierce had just sold a copy of his CD to Wentworth who was impressed enough to say yes to her surprise of the day – the singer’s invitation to dance. “He’s got a great voice,” said Wentworth, a Maine native visiting Zephyrhills for a couple of weeks. She had stopped at Zephyr Park for that quiet walk and discovered the Zephyrhills Artsy Farmers’ Market, off State Road 54 at 38116 Fifth Ave. Pierce and his wife, Melissa, were at the market for their second time. The singer is a frequent entertainer at the Fraternal Order of the Eagles and Ralph’s Travel Park, both in Zephyrhills. During the farmers’ market, Pierce sang covers and original tunes under the gazebo at water’s edge. His wife Melissa sat at a display table covered with her husband’s CDs, collections that range from gospel songs to covers of Elvis Presley. “I do a little bit of everything,” Pierce said. “Pretty much everything but heavy metal and rap.” He was among about 15 vendors who set up tents and displays under the cathedral canopy of oak trees near the park’s entrance. The market got its start downtown in Times Square Park on Fifth Avenue with just a few vendors about a year ago. In October, the market moved to the larger and more tranquil setting of Zephyr Park. The event is from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., on the second Wednesday and fourth Saturday of each month. Beginning April 25, the market will become a fourth-Saturday-only event. The market, staged by Largo-based Simply Events, needs more vendors.

ManionTimothy Beard has been selected to become Pasco-Hernando State College’s fourth president. The PHSC District Board of Trustees announced its choice at the conclusion of its presidential search, on March 18. Beard, vice president of student development and enrollment management at PHSC in New Port Richey, was among a field of four finalists. The other finalists worked at Klamath Community College in Klamath Falls, Oregon; West Virginia University at Parkersburg, Parkersburg, West Virginia; and, St. Petersburg College in St. Petersburg. They decided to promote Beard to replace Katherine Johnson, who is retiring on June 30. Beard’s appointment becomes effective July 1, pending the successful outcome of contract negotiations.“We are pleased to extend an offer for the presidential position to Dr. Beard,” Ed Blommel, PHSC District Board of Trustees and presidential search committee chair, said in a release. “As a senior administrator at PHSC for the past eight years, he is already familiar with the college and has an understanding of its strategic goals and mission.”Beard is delighted to be stepping into the college’s leadership role. “This is a surreal opportunity,” said Beard, who has worked for the college since 2007 and expects to build on the good work that has been accomplished there. Before joining PHSC, Beard was vice president and dean of student affairs at the University of South Alabama in Mobile, and director of student affairs and enrollment management at Florida A&M University in Tallahassee. He earned his doctoral degree in rehabilitation counseling, with a special emphasis in higher education administration, from Florida State University in Tallahassee. He also has a master’s and a bachelor’s degree in rehabilitation counseling from FSU. Pasco-Hernando State College has more than 15,000 students and about 700 employees, including adjunct faculty. Pasco-Hernando State College awards certificates, diplomas, associate degrees and baccalaureate degrees. The college has campuses in Dade City, Wesley Chapel, New Port Richey, Spring Hill and Brooksville. Beard said he plans to pursue an initiative that would enlist the help of faith communities and other organizations to help support students, through scholarships and in other ways. He is looking forward to strengthening the ties between PHSC and the communities it serves. “I really want to bring the community into the college and the college into the community,” Beard said.

She wasn’t too disappointed. “I wasn’t very good at it anyway,” the 14year-old said. Her mother, Andrea Elbrecht, wanted her daughter to find a sport in which she could excel and have fun. She had no idea that would turn out to be bowling.“I didn’t know the first thing about bowling,” said Elbrecht, who lives in Land O’ Lakes.Chance — and a friend’s birthday party at a bowling alley — settled the matter. Fernandez found her niche. The teenager has had the highest average score in Hillsborough County in her age group for the past two years. She currently is topping her own previous records with an average 180 points a game. She and 15-year-old Jacob Kostoff, who lives in Trinity, will test their skills against hundreds of bowlers this summer, when they head to Chicago to compete at the national Jr. Gold Championship. Kostoff eased into bowling naturally by watching his father play in a local league. He rolled his first ball toward the tenpins when he was just 8. The ball was so heavy, he lifted it with two hands. Seven years later, he is a rarity, a left-handed bowler with a two-handed bowling style. Fernandez and Kostoff competed in a tournament in DeLand to secure their tournament spots. Their coach is Lucy Sandelin, a Hall of Fame bowler who is a two-time winner of the United States Bowling Congress Senior Queens title. She hopes to win a third title this year. Sandelin also is a former member of Team USA. She coaches with World Cup Bowling Academy, based in Tampa. Practice sessions in coming weeks will focus on gaining real-time experience in bowling on lanes with different oil patterns. Bowling alleys have “lane machines” that put down varying amounts of oil over parts of the width and length of each lane. Sandelin is focusing on five of 24 recognized patterns, each named after a city that has hosted the Olympics. The patterns aren’t visible to the eye, but they make a huge difference in game strategies, she said. Competitors in Chicago will learn a week before the tournament start what pattern will be applied to the lanes. One of the most challenging patterns is the Los Angeles pattern, said Sandelin. “It’s their (bowlers’) nemesis,” she said because it forces bowlers to roll their balls close to the gutters to avoid the heaviest amounts of oil. Her students make detailed notes. The notes offer explicit instructions: “It tells them ‘I stand here. I look here. I use this hand position. I use this ball speed,’ ” Sandelin said. Fernandez and Kostoff have very different styles. “His two-handed style is phenomenal,” Sandelin said. “People look at him and go ‘wow.’” His goal is to attend college on a bowling scholarship and then to turn pro.He gave fleeting consideration to switching to a more standard one-handed bowling style, but decided to stick with his approach.After all, Australian bowler Jason Belmonte is a two-handed bowler. “Right now, he’s the best bowler in the world,” Kostoff said. Fernandez is laid back and doesn’t give in to distractions or pressure. “A lot of things don’t bother her,” Sandelin said. “That’s going to be to her advantage (in Chicago).” Her calm demeanor may be disarming. “She’s a fierce competitor,” Sandelin said. Both youths play in three bowling leagues and practice three to four days a week at bowling alleys in Pasco and Hillsborough counties. On a recent Thursday night, they were at Royal Lanes in Lutz, along with 14-year-old Lutz resident Chandler Carr and Land O’ Lakes resident 16-year-old Alec Ballard. The foursome will compete later this year in a state tournament. Carr, who has been playing baseball since he was 4, is relatively new to bowling. He just started last year. “Now all he wants to do is bowl, bowl, bowl,” said his mother, Suzin Carr. “He finally found something he really likes. It is something you can do as an individual. You are part of a team, but you also enjoy it as an individual sport.” He’s gone from 43 points a game to a high of 265. “He’d do it every day of the week, if I let him,” she said. When bowling, teammates often highfive each other. “They want to win, but they are also supportive of one another,” Carr said. Sandelin, 58, started bowling at age 6. Bowling is a sport open to everyone, she said. “A lot of these kids don’t have other sports they can play,” she said. “They have asthma. They can’t run. But in bowling, you don’t have to be tall or strong. You need eye and hand coordination.” Bowling offers so many life lessons to students, Elbrecht said. That’s why she is disappointed that public schools in Pasco and Hillsborough – with one exception don’t offer it in school athletics. In Hillsborough County, Brooks DeBartolo Collegiate Charter School is the only public school with a bowling team, according to the school’s website. Boys and girls compete on a coed team. Schools are missing out on opportunities to include more students in athletics and also in giving students a chance at winning scholarships, Elbrecht said. Through its SMART (Scholarship Management and Accounting Reports for Tenpins) program, the United States Bowling Congress helps student bowlers secure scholarship money for college. Students can earn scholarship dollars based on the number of pins they knock down, Elbrecht said. “It’s a fantastic sport. I’ve known a lot of kids who funded their college educations.” Her daughter has her scholarship money waiting in a USBC account and hopes to attend college on full scholarship. Long-range, she wants a career in the medical field. But bowling will be a lifelong passion. “You can control what you do,” Fernandez said. “You can sort of show off in an independent game, and you can improve.” And, she likes her chances in Chicago. “I have a mental game. That’s what most bowlers don’t have,” Fernandez said. Sandelin’s advice to her students is this: “Enjoy the journey Make friends. Enjoy the process.”Striking up some winning ways FRED BELLET/PHOTOFrom left, Donna Fernandez, 14, of Land O’ Lakes; Jacob Kostoff, 15, of Trinity; Coach Lucy Sandelin; Alec Ballard, 16, of Land O’ Lakes; and Chandler Carr, 14, of Lutz will compete in an upcoming state tournament.

If it’s too early in the year, you might catch one of our really cold weekends. If it’s closer to summer, you risk rain, sweltering heat and more rain. Did I mention the rain? You have to time things just right. Fortunately, this happens to be the right time. The weather is nice, but it’s not too humid yet. And because it’s the right time, Avalon Park West, a community in Wesley Chapel, has a monthly “Movie Under the Stars” series that’s worth checking out. On the fourth Friday of each month they show a family friendly movie. Last month, it was “Planes,” and on March 27, it will be “The Boxtrolls,” an animated film that was recently nominated for an Academy Award for Best Animated Feature. So you show up and watch a movie. Is that it? Well, not quite. Not only is the movie free (this is “On the Cheap,” so you might have guessed that part) but they serve free popcorn as well. They also have free lemonade and hot cocoa, too. And since it’s out by their pool, you can grab one of the pool chairs, or bring your own chairs or blanket. You can even bring your own cooler, and enjoy snacks and drinks from home. In other words, no $5 drinks and $6 popcorn like you’ll find at the regular movie theater. You can enjoy some nice weather with family or friends and not spend a lot of money to do it. Technically, you don’t have to spend any money at all. How often can you take the whole family out to an event and not lose a penny? As most of you know, that’s rare. So we need to take advantage of those evenings when we find them. In case you were wondering, you don’t have to live in Avalon Park West to go. It’s open to everyone. All you have to do is like movies and free things to do. And that covers a lot of us. Before the movie starts on the blow-up screen, a disc jockey gets the kids ready for the show with some music and dancing. So you might want to show up a little early to get a good spot and enjoy the entertainment before the movie begins. And it doesn’t end too late, so everyone can make their bedtimes, too. Finding cheap things to do isn’t easy, but it’s worth it. And it’s nice to come across something local that’s completely free all the way around. For children and adults who like animated films, this is a great way to spend a Friday night.By the way, there are only a couple of dates left before the event takes a break until later in the year. If you can’t make it on March 27, you can try again on April 24 when they show “Big Hero 6.” That movie beat “The Boxtrolls” for Best Animated Feature. Since the next two films were both nominated for Academy Awards, you might want to attend both. It’s the same price, after all: Nothing.

One of the more dramatic displays comes from Loropetalum, also known as the Chinese Fringe bush. A Loropetalum plant often grows to 15 feet tall or more and can spread up to 10 feet wide. It puts on a brilliant bright pink show starting in spring with on-and-off again flowering through fall. Loropetalum tends to grow into a dense shrub because of its tendency to develop multiple stems, but with some pruning, this plant can be trained to grow with a single trunk into a tree-like shape. Many times this plant is pruned into short, stumpy shrubs, less than 3 feet or 4 feet tall, to fill bare spots in parking lots or to serve as short hedges. In this situation, constant pruning is required to keep them to the desired height and many folks are disappointed with the shrub, as they fail to thrive, develop odd and unnatural shapes, and develop little or none of the brilliant colorful flower display for which they are known. This situation demonstrates a perfect example of planting the wrong plant in the wrong place and expecting the plant to conform to its surroundings when it’s simply out of its element. There are several dwarf varieties on the market, so if you want a shorter version, plant one of those. Don’t try to prune a full-sized plant into a dwarf. For the full-size version of this plant to thrive and put on the show you expect, plant them in areas where it can grow up and out. Be sure to choose a location that’s mostly sunny with a pH of 5-6. Soils with a higher pH often cause nutritional deficiencies in these plants. Use the full-sized Loropetalum behind shorter plants as a backdrop where they can flourish and provide a pop of color. While little pruning is necessary for a dense shrub, selectively prune out stems after flowering in spring to train the plant into the shape you prefer. Remember, these plants grow into a dense shrub naturally. If you want a more open view of the trunk, selective pruning at the right time can create a nice variation from the dense shrub look. In Central Florida, these plants can be planted year-round and have few problems making them a great addition to many landscapes. Whitney C.

ELMORE Good gardening maxim: Right plant, right place NATURE NOTESAn endangered clouded leopard gave birth to a single male kitten on March 7 at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, according to zoo officials. As the first kitten born to the zoo’s pair of 4-year-old clouded leopards, this offspring introduces new genetics into the managed population in North America. The parent leopards, Yim (male) and Malee (female), arrived at the Zoo in 2011 at 6 months of age. The Clouded Leopard Species Survival Plan (SSP) paired the two as potential mates, a news release says. The Clouded Leopard Species Survival Plan is a program of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA) that is designed to support the conservation of select wildlife species at risk of extinction. There are now a total of 87 clouded leopards in 22 AZA-accredited institutions. “This birth signifies a milestone accomplishment in our conservation programs at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo,” according to Larry Killmar, vice president of animal science and conservation for the zoo. “Species survival programs for animals like clouded leopards take years of planning, development and staff commitment. This kitten will contribute to the long term viability of our conservation efforts within the managed population, as well as range countries.” Members of the zoo’s animal care staff were on watch for the birth following breeding and gestation estimates of approximately three months. Shortly after its birth, the zoo’s animal care team observed the kitten to be a male, and are now providing around-the-clock care. Clouded leopard kittens are hand-reared to facilitate introductions to potential mates at 6 months of age, as with Yim and Malee, the news release says. Within the AZA-managed population, rearing the kittens by hand for socialization and introducing them to potential mates at a young age has been very successful in reducing fatal attacks by aggressive adult males. The kitten is feeding well and is gaining weight. It was 300 grams at birth and weighed in at 565 grams on day 10. He is expected to be strong enough to begin walking within the next few weeks. He will be hand-reared until weaned at about 3 months of age. At that time the AZA SSP will make a determination about his future home. Clouded leopards are the smallest of the “big cats,” weighing 3050 pounds in adulthood and measuring about 5-feet long, including its long tail. Native to Southeast Asia, clouded leopards are found in forests and rainforests. They are known as shy and reclusive cats. As a forest-dependent species, the leopard’s native range is undergoing the world’s fastest regional deforestation rates. High levels of hunting and poaching also make the species vulnerable to extinction.Endangered leopard born at Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo PHOTO COURTESY OF LOWRY PARK ZOO

Ashley Samnani, who sells Rainbow vacuums and cleaning supplies, was among the original group of vendors who launched the market at the downtown location.Samnani likes the park setting much better.“Now (the market) is growing expansively,” she said. On a recent Wednesday, the Brandon resident had a drawing at the park to give away three air purifiers.“It’s nice that it’s in this location,” Samnani said. “People in the park visit (the market). It’s like a family the way we all interact.”Keeping it local is Simply Events’ goal, said Andrew Cecere, the company’s vendor consultant. Owners of Zephyrhills-based Peaceful Pastures Farm were on hand selling freerange eggs. The farm also produces free-range Cornish Cross broilers and turkeys. Amanda Jones, 30, and her mother-in-law, Phyllis Stonebarger, were selling handmade items including clutches, drawstring bags, coaster sets and potholders. They spread their wares across a folding table. It was their first time at the Zephyrhills’ market. “I’ve always wanted a sewing machine,” said Jones who lives in Wesley Chapel. “One day I bought one. I’m self-taught, a lot of YouTubes (YouTube videos).” Natalie Avila, 21, Kornilous Donnell Sr., 25, and their 1-year-old toddler, Kornilous Donnell Jr., all of Zephyrhills, enjoyed a stroll through the park, cool drinks and fruit from Come Under the Yum Yum Tree, a produce company from Brandon. “It adds to the community,” said Donnell Sr., “I like that they are getting vendors that are able to sell produce. Zephyrhills needs more businesses anyway. This is great.” Pam Nethers of American Pride sold jewelry and accessories from her home-based business in Fort Myers. Lida Livingston, owner of Livs Coffee Place, sold organic coffee. Her mobile business is based in Lakeland, but she travels for weddings, corporate events and house parties. Maryann Hendricks, 67, brought her Raggedy Ann and Andy dolls, children’s dresses and accessories from Clearwater. Her grandmother taught her to sew. “I enjoy it,” she said. “I’m teaching my granddaughter to sew.” For one family from Zephyrhills, jams and pickles, and baby quilts are a growing business. ITTs Homemade is an intergenerational venture that began as a fun project in the kitchen. They were among the original vendors at the downtown location. Grandmother Irene Secrest, 80, does some of the preparations, such as peeling the apples. But she said, “I let them do the cooking.” While her daughter, Teisha Disbrow, and granddaughters, Teresa Hicks and Tabytha Silverman, are busy canning strawberry jams, pumpkin butter, banana peppers and sweet pickles, Secrest settles down to her specialty – making baby quilts. Their home-based business also was among the original vendors at the downtown location. “There’s a lot more people coming here,” Hicks said. “It’s just a prettier setting.” The next farmers’ market at Zephyr Park will be March 28 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. For information, contact Simply Events at (727) 674-1464.MARKET, from page 1A Natalie Avila, Kornilous Donnell Sr., and their 1-year-old son, Kornilous Donnell Jr., stopped at a vendor’s tent to pick up brochures. Amanda Jones, at left in cap, talks with a shopper who is checking out Jones’ array of homemade clutch bags, potholders and accessories.

By Mike Matthew Special to The Laker / Lutz NewsLynne Mitzel, principal owner of Morrow Insurance Group, has helped Lutz families protect their assets for over twenty-five years. Our name is synonymous with community, says Lynne. We have had customers with us for thirty years, and now we are insuring their children. Everyone has different insurance needs. Two families in the same neighborhood will each have unique circumstances. We work to give our clients exactly what they need and want, not a cookie-cutter plan that is easy to sell. We are big on relationships, says Lynne. At the end of the day, it is all about people working with people. You need to be able to trust the people with which you work. Our national carriers are constantly telling us to send our smaller clients to call centers for service, says Lynne. I certainly do not like my calls being answered by someone in another country. I want every one of my customers to receive the personal service they deserve from someone who knows them and truly cares about their needs. Lynne and her team, work diligently to obtain customized coverage for each client. A major concern facing homeowners today has to do with homeowners insurance. Many national insurance carriers are no longer writing homeowners policies in Florida. As a result clients often come to us having policies with the state insurer, Citizens. While a vast number of these policies are being transferred to take-out companies, even some of these companies go out of business in a few short years due to mismanagement and other financial difficulties. This is shaky ground for homeowners, and they need someone on their side to provide insurance options. Morrow Insurance stays on top of these issues along with maintaining a company base that provides alternative markets to ensure their clients are properly covered.Morrow Insurance has one office with eighteen colleagues. Many of which have been there more than ten years. Were like a big family here, says Lynne. We actually enjoy insurance, and everyone works hard for our customers. Schools do not teach people how to buy insurance or purchase real estate, says Lynne. These are big issues. You have to find someone who takes your interests to heart. We are a faith-based organization, and that contributes to why everyone is so caring and loving. The office is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. They close for lunch daily from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m., so everyone can go to lunch together. Sometimes their customers join them.Morrow Insurance Group provides personal insurance (homeowners, umbrella, auto, flood, valuable articles, motorcycle, watercraft, recreational vehicle, and plane insurance), commercial insurance (property, commercial vehicle, workers compensation, product liability, crime, marine, and general liability), health insurance and financial planning services.

While the Lions have had strong records the last two years under coach Sean O’ Connor, his third season at the helm has produced the best results so far. They won 17 out of their first 18 games, and currently lead the nation in both hits and runs in National Collegiate Athletic Association Division II play. They’re ranked 15th in the D2 Baseball News poll, and 16th in the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper. O’ Connor admits he is surprised by the team’s performance — he actually thought it would be better. “I’m shocked we have five losses at this point,” he said. “We haven’t played our best baseball, to be honest with you.” Still, to be 21-5 is an impressive start, and to build on consecutive 30-plus win seasons is no easy feat. O’ Connor attributes the team’s success this year to having a lot of returning players. The team’s starting lineup this year is about the same as last year, and playing underclassmen in the past is paying off now. The Lions also benefit from a focus on depth during the recruiting process. O’ Connor wanted to avoid tying their fortunes to one or two star players, where an injury or slump could derail the entire season. Instead the team has depth, with players on the bench that could start for other schools. While they might not get as much playing time as the starters, those athletes can take over when necessary without a big drop-off in talent or production. “We’ve tried to build this team so that when something does go wrong, we’re fully prepared for it and somebody else will step in and do the job that’s more than capable of doing so,” O’Connor said. That method seems to be working, with double-digit run production in more than half of their games. But even with the strong start, O’Connor warns that there’s no guarantee of post-season success just yet. They weren’t selected for the regional tournament the past two years, and with most of the conference schedule ahead of them, they have to win when it matters most to make the tournament. “The real test is the conference,” O’Connor said. “It’s nice that we’re 21-5, but if we don’t finish in the top two or three spots in the conference, it doesn’t mean a thing.” The Sunshine State Conference provides a pretty tough test for its teams. All eight schools have a winning record, and five of them have 19 wins or more. With a 2-4 conference record, the Lions will have to win many of those upcoming conference games to keep up with the other talented teams and enter the regional tournament. If they get there, they’ll do it with passion and emotion. While some coaches (and their teams) are stoic and don’t display much passion, O’ Connor said that Saint Leo plays with a lot of emotion. Being vocal and staying invested in the moment is part of the team’s personality, and he wants the team to remain that way. And if that passion gets them to the first regional tournament of his tenure as coach, he thinks they can keep it going from there. The talent level is so high in the Sunshine State Conference, O’ Connor thinks the teams that escape it have an advantage over teams that don’t face that level of competition on a regular basis. “If you get out of the conference, you’ve got a good shot at going to the World Series,” he said. Saint Leo is also proving that they can bounce back after losses as well. After being swept by Nova Southeastern earlier this month, they followed it up by winning four of their next five, including two of three against Florida Tech, ranked 10th at the time.While there’s still a lot of baseball left to play before the season ends in early May, O’ Connor believes he has the kind of team that can get over the hump and make a run in the regional tournament and World Series. “This is certainly the best team we’ve had in the three years I’ve been here,” he said.

Author relives escape from IraqBy Michael MurilloFor most people, Iraq is a faraway place on a glowing computer or television screen. It’s a place where we send soldiers and spouses and sisters, and pray for their safe return. It’s somewhere we forget as our work, softball practice, income taxes or other things absorb our attention, until the next news report pulls us back to images of desert and tanks. For Jwan Al Brwe, Iraq isn’t a foreign country. It’s not just a trending topic on political talk shows. It is a place she once called home. “In my country, there’s a lot of beautiful, simple stuff in life,” said Al Brwe, who now lives in Land O’ Lakes with her sister. She recalls simple pleasures she enjoyed while growing up in Duhok, a town in Northern Iraq. She recalls the warm bread, right from the oven, that her father brought them before the children left for school, and the fresh milk delivered daily to their doorstep by a farmer. She has haunting memories, too: The threats of bombing and poisonous gas. Fleeing through the mountains on a dangerous trek to Turkey to escape. Seeing people starving and dying as they awaited permission to cross the border. When they reached the border, Al Brwe recalls being rejected and forced to return to the family’s decimated town. She also recalls being jailed in Greece, after another desperate attempt to escape. Then, after years of hoping, planning and praying, she remembers finally arriving in the United States. Her memories are documented in her book, “Hope to the Last Breath: Flowers Among the Thorns in the Land Between Two Rivers,” released in December by CHB Media. Besides conveying what happened in Iraq, she wants to bring attention to what’s happening there now.LEAVING HOMEAl Brwe, now 32, and her family suffered in Northern Iraq as a result of war, but it’s not the one we’ve seen play out over the past dozen years. Before that war and before Operation Desert Shield, Iraq and Iran were at war throughout most of the 1980s. Border conflicts were common and each side suffered hundreds of thousands of casualties. After that war ended, the people in Northern Iraq faced more conflict — not from Iran, but from their own government. That part of the country is dominated by Kurds (an ethnic group found in several countries in the region) and was under constant oppression by the Iraqi regime led by Saddam Hussein. The Kurds wanted self-rule. Hussein responded with genocide, by way of ground invasions, aerial assaults and chemical attacks. When politicians in the United States criticized Hussein for “using chemical weapons against his own people,” they were referring to the region where Al Brwe and her family lived. A particularly brutal attack occurred in the town of Halabja, a 90-minute drive from Al Brwe’s Duhok. When their town was rumored to be next, they knew it was time to leave. Al Brwe and her family, as well as her uncle’s family, fled to the mountains. The group of 16 was among a million people clamoring to find safety. They spent several days crossing the mountains to reach the Turkish border, where they begged for admittance. They stayed there for more than a month, suffering while awaiting an answer. “We were melting snow to stay hydrated,” Al Brwe recalled. They were forced to burn money to fuel the fire, and her father rooted around in the ground, seeking anything he could find they could eat. Thousands died, many of them children and infants, and they were buried beneath piles of dirt because there were no tools to prepare a proper grave. Al Brwe was 9. She was starving and dehydrated, and her hair began to fall out. “When you’re young, when you live that kind of life, you’re not young anymore,” she said. “You think like an adult. That’s the sad part. They steal your childhood away.” There are other painful chapters in her story, including being rejected by Turkey and returned in trucks to Duhok, which had been attacked. Aside from their beds, little remained of their home. They stayed there for years, until they could save enough money for visas before trying to escape again. As Al Brwe’s family lived through this period in Iraq, they technically weren’t part of the conflict. Al Brwe is not a Kurd and her family is not Muslim, the dominant Kurd faith. Her family members are Chaldean Christians, affiliated with the Catholic Church. But bombs don’t differentiate between religions, so the danger was as real for them as for anyone else. “My faith was shaken,” Al Brwe said. “I’m like ‘God if you’re watching, how are you letting all these people die?’ You stop believing.” She was angry at Turkey for rejecting them, angry with the Iraqi government for persecuting them and angry with the world community for ignoring them, even though it knew what was happening, she said. “We felt abandoned,” she said.A FAITH RESTOREDOver time — through hard work, time and introspection — her faith became a source of strength again. And that renewed faith would help her through another trying time in her young life. With temporary visas in hand, her family made it into Turkey this time. They planned to escape by hiding on meat trucks, en route to Greece, but were caught and jailed. Al Brwe was 15.But a change in the law during their incarceration allowed refugee families to stay. The family eventually reached the United States and was joined by her uncle’s family later.Even that happiness was tempered by loss. Within a year, her father, David, passed away from lung cancer. It is no coincidence, Al Brwe believes, that her father held on until his family had settled into their new country. “When you carry so much burden in your life, and you know that your children are safe, then you can let go,” she said. While “Hope to the Last Breath” tells a story of horrific suffering, Al Brwe wants it to have a positive effect on its readers. “Americans have this beautiful love that you guys give,” said Al Brwe, who became a citizen in 2005. “When you’re surrounded by kind people, it heals you. I got healed slowly. It took years.” Besides describing incidents of the past, the book serves to remind people of the new threat facing the people of Iraq. The Islamic State, also known as ISIS or ISIL, is terrorizing the region, she said. “Today, everything that happened to me — it’s similar, but a different situation — is happening today, and the world is still not looking at them,” she said. While Al Brwe is free now to pursue her passions, including art and dance, she continues to pray for her own healing, for the safety of her family in Iraq and for the world to take note of her people’s suffering. She also gives thanks for being given the strength that has carried her through dark times. Al Brwe hopes that her family’s fight for survival in Iraq decades ago, and their ultimate freedom, will help to encourage others who are facing struggles and challenges. “Never stop hoping, no matter what you’re doing in life,” she said. “We can change the world by being kind. Kindness is contagious.” “Hope to the Last Breath” is available at Amazon and Barnes & Noble, as well as in ebook format for Kindle.

Wash the wound thoroughly with warm soapy water. If the dog is a pet, get the owner's name and address and ask for proof of rabies vaccination. If the dog is a stray, confine it if possible and call Animal Services. Call your doctor and follow his/her advice for treatment. Within 24 hours, report the bite to Animal Services or the Pasco County Health Department. Q. What can be done about problems with a neighbor's cat? A. If you are experiencing problems caused by owned cats, we suggest you discuss the issue with the cat owner, and request their help in resolving your problems. If these efforts fail, individuals have the option to privately litigate to resolve nuisances caused by another neighbor. If there are more than nine cats owned by one individual, that person may be in violation of Pasco County zoning regulations. To report this type of violation, contact the county’s code compliance department. Even though there are not any cat leash laws at this time, there are Florida laws and county ordinances that require cat owners to have their cats vaccinated against rabies. We will investigate reports of violations of these laws. To report a violation, you would need to call our office and provide our staff with your name and address, as well as the name and address of the cat owners. If you are a person who is feeding “stray” cats, you can be held responsible for them. As the “owner, harborer or keeper” of an animal, you are responsible for compliance with these local and state laws and can be charged for failure to comply.
