But a 90-foot pylon sign beckoning to motorists as they whiz down Interstate 75 is one landmark the mall’s developers might have to redesign or do without. It is well above the county’s 30-foot height limit. And Pasco Assistant County Attorney David Goldstein said the sign also wouldn’t meet regulations of the Florida Department of Transportation and could affect Pasco’s share of highway funds. “Our office is going to object,” he said. Goldstein did, however, suggest that developers explore a compromise of a smaller, clock tower. It is not clear if that type of structure would clear state department of transportation hurdles or fit in with Pasco’s new ordinance to encourage developers to create unified signage for their projects that enhances architectural styles and establishes a sense of place. The outlet mall’s application is an early test of the county’s new sign plan. The Pasco County Commission will have the final word. Visibility is a critical issue for the outlet mall, said John Dionis, senior director of development for New-Jersey-based Simon Property Group. “We’re looking to have a national advertising marketing campaign to draw people to the center,” Dionos said. “We like to dovetail that with visibility, with branding so people know how to get to the center from the outside.” As a regional mall, about 75 percent to 80 percent of customers are expected to come from outside the area, Dionos said. It is too easy for motorists, especially those unfamiliar with I-75 and State Road 56, to zip past the off ramps funneling traffic toward the mall, he said. Developers are in the process of seeking the state transportation department’s approval for identifying signs at highwayIt’s playtimeBrothers enjoy making music togetherBy Michael MurilloThings can get a little loud at the Dorsey house in Land O’ Lakes. With four brothers ages 6 through 11, they can fill the house up with sound. But you won’t hear a loud television blaring or children screaming over toys. Instead, you’ll hear violins being tuned. Piano keys being played. Music stands being moved into place. And then you’ll hear elegant pieces of classical music, performed by artists who spend a lot of time honing their craft. When these boys play together, it doesn’t sound like anything you’d hear on the playground. The three oldest brothers, Daniel (piano), Nathaniel (violin) and Anthony (violin), participated in this year’s Justine Le Baron Young Artists Competition, an annual event sponsored by the Florida Orchestra Musicians Association. Daniel took third place in the Junior Piano category, while youngest brother Aaron, at age 6, gave the piano a rest and sat this one out. Their mother, Rowena Dorsey, doesn’t mind the symphonic sounds in her house the least little bit. “It’s like a regular music school if you ask me,” she said with a laugh. “We are kind of an unusual family.” Rowena home-schools the boys, so their music practice is a scheduled part of their day. Rather than just going through the motions, the boys enjoy working on pieces of music and performing them well, after plenty of practice. After dinner with their mother and their father, Martin, they frequently repeat their latest efforts with both parents listening to their improvement. If it sounds like music is a time-consuming pursuit for the boys, it is. But that’s what they like to do. Their parents encouraged them to pick up instruments at a young age — they all started around age 5 or age 6. But the enthusiasm is all their own. Their parents don’t force them into competitions. They choose when they want to compete, and they practice because they want to play better. “Ultimately, I really want them to enjoy it,” Rowena said. They do enjoy playing, she said, but they’re also very competitive. That’s why a seemingly impressive performance at the Young Artists competition might be something of a disappointment. “It felt weird,” Daniel said about his thirdplace finish. “I was going against the same people in another competition and I won first (place). And I was against them again, and they beat me this time.” David likes to challenge himself, repeatedly practicing a difficult piece until he has MICHAEL MURILLO/STAFF PHOTOSThe Dorsey brothers spend many days practicing their instruments as part of their home schooling.

ManionChurches across Pasco and Hillsborough counties are gearing up for a wide array of Holy Week events and Easter celebrations. Some churches will do re-enactments of the Last Supper and Good Friday, while others will include egg hunts, pancake breakfasts, barbecue meals and other festivities. Whatever they’re doing, churches are ready to greet regulars and visitors alike, as they commemorate the last days of Jesus’ life and celebrate his resurrection. Our Lady of the Rosary Church, at 2348 Collier Parkway, expects about twice as many people at its Easter services as normally attend its weekend Masses, said the Rev. Ron Aubin, the church’s pastor. “A normal Sunday, it would be about 3,000 to 3,500. Easter, it will be over 7,000,” the pastor said. Aubin said the Easter message, in part, will be this: “He (God) sends his son (Jesus) as savior of the world, and that we who believe in him and die in the waters of baptism and rise with him in the waters of baptism, will also rise to the eternal life. “I have the hope of one day rising from the dead. And hope is not wishing. Hope is believing.

As a teenager, Thomas Giella Jr., built his own computer. “I always helped out people on the side with their computer issues,” he said. He launched his web design and marketing business, Gear Spinners, more than a year ago. Now he has two offshoot companies, Techsoft Academy and i-gent, and a $1,000 check pinned to a calendar in his office with a paper clip. “I plan to get a frame for it,” Giella said. The check is his prize for winning third place in the inaugural SMARTstart Business Challenge on Jan. 29. The Pasco Economic Development Council, the West Pasco Chamber of Commerce, the New Port Richey Economic Development Department and SCORE sponsored the contest to celebrate Business Development Week. The SMARTstart incubator program is an initiative of the Pasco EDC, with locations in Dade City and New Port Richey. About 20 businesses, both on and off site, are members of SMARTstart. They include technology companies, sales and marketing, and new attorneys. One company completes personal assessments to reduce company turnover. “We have a pretty diverse membership,” said Krista Covey, the managing program director at Pasco EDC and director of SMARTstart. Giella competed against about 20 companies to earn one of five spots in the finals that were held at the SMARTstart incubator site in New Port Richey. Judges included representatives from Pasco’s business and academic community. First place winners were Brian Anderson and Janel Norton of Veterans Alternative Therapy Center in Holiday. Second place went to Greg Smith of Savealator in New Port Richey. The competition was modeled after Shark Tank, the television show where contestants make a pitch to a panel of investors. The pitch can be a nerve jangling trial, but Giella kept it simple. He had 10 minutes to “sell” Techsoft Academy to a panel of judges including representatives from Withlacoochee River Electric Cooperative and Pasco-Hernando State College. Judges then had 10 minutes to quiz Giella. “I tried to think like a customer,” he said. “I thought about all the stories I’ve heard from my clients. It was an awesome learning experience.” Giella earned office space at SMARTstart’s incubator site in Dade City about five months ago. He works out of a small office at the Dade City Business Center, at 15000 Citrus Country Drive, Suite 103. His services with Gear Spinners include web design and web hosting. Techsoft Academy can help bloggers and businesses go a step further by offering classes that teach more advanced skills. And i-gent caters to Realtors who need website management. “Some people are go, go, go,” said Giella, and they likely don’t have time to spend on a website. But others, he said, want to do more of the work themselves. Giella also helps organize Tampa Bay Word Camp, a group that offers conferences to teach skills in Word Press for blogging, business and social media. Recent clients include the owners of the Yeoman’s Cask & Lion, a British-style pub that will open soon on Morgan Street in downtown Tampa. The pub is a new location and a rebranding for the former Yeoman’s Road Pub on Davis Islands, south of downtown Tampa. His contest prize money will help buy new equipment to enhance his business, including a DSLR camera and microphone. Giella started working on a business plan in 2013 to turn his hobby into a brick-andmortar reality. A few months ago SMARTstart approved his application, and he moved into the business center. Membership fees for on-site businesses start at $100 a month with tiered increases based on profitability. In return, fledgling entrepreneurs get office space, mentors, seminars and classes. “They want to see what you’re up to, how much you’re making, is it going to create jobs,” Giella said. “It’s great the amount of stuff we talk about. It’s not common that you can talk about business in front of others and actually get good advice back.” Giella graduated from Saint Leo University with a degree in business management. He launched a profitable business selling LED lighting for motorcycles, but sold the company two years ago. “Everyone kept wanting me to build websites,” he said. Gear Spinners and Techsoft Academy are gaining traction. Giella has a handful of proposals that could increase his client portfolio. If business picks up, he could be hiring his first employees in the next months. “I can’t wait until I can hire people,” he said. “But I’m taking it one step at a time.” He credits SMARTstart with giving him a chance to prove his new business has potential. “My confidence level is boosted,” Giella said. “That’s key. People can see that.” For information on Gear Spinners, contact Giella at (813) 235-0554, or visit For information on SMARTstart, contact Covey at (727) 4780670, (352) 437-4861, or visit KATHY STEELE/STAFF PHOTOThomas Giella Jr., is building his businesses, Gear Spinners, i-gent, and Techsoft Academy at SMARTstart’s incubator site in the Dade City Business Center.By Michael MurilloWhen Rachelle Duroseau received the Champion of Service award from Gov. Rick Scott, she didn’t have much advance warning that she was up for the distinction. “I did not know I was nominated. It was a surprise to me,” said Duroseau, who volunteers for the Children’s Home Society of Florida and lives in Wesley Chapel. She had just a few days to prepare for the presentation at the governor’s cabinet meeting Feb. 5 in Tampa. Those few days gave her enough time to have her mother and father, Javeline and Serge, present, along with the supervisors who had nominated her. Duroseau is a volunteer coordinator at the Children’s Home Society, which provides care and resources for abused, neglected and abandoned children. As part of the Gulf Coast division, she works at the Joshua House in Lutz. Her main duties include managing volunteers and working on larger campaigns, which include an annual back-to-school drive and a toy drive during the holiday season. If that sounds like a full-time job, it is. Duroseau works a 40-hour-a-week schedule. She’s in the Americorps VISTA program, a national service program designed to help fight poverty. She receives a living allowance through an Americorps grant. Since the money she receives is set at the poverty line and works out to around $1,000 a month, the Nazareth College graduate isn’t doing it for the money. She simply sees people suffering and can’t let it continue without doing something about it. “It honestly doesn’t even feel like service to me. It just feels like a natural thing that needs to be done,” Duroseau said. “I don’t even feel like I’m doing anything special or out of the ordinary.” But the 26-year-old’s volunteer resume is anything but ordinary. She said her parents taught her the importance of helping others when she was young, and she’s been following that path. Duroseau has a long history of service to others.Before coming to Children’s Home, she took care of hospice patients, traveled to India to help women and orphans, and worked with homeless shelters and foot clinics to provide foot hygiene to the homeless, including efforts with at-risk youth, Habitat For Humanity and emergency shelters.The volunteer’s experiences appealed to volunteer program manager Meghan Pfleiderer when she interviewed Duroseau for the position at Children’s Home. Duroseau’s college studies in sociology and community-based youth development were a plus, as well. The volunteer’s demeanor is another big asset, Pfleiderer said, especially when dealing with volunteers. It’s important to make them feel rewarded and appreciated, since they’re such a big part of the organization. They might have five to seven volunteers for their regular day-to-day operations, but utilize 125 or more for large projects. And Duroseau is able to handle them and their efforts effectively. “The personality that Rachelle brings to the table is perfect for that sort of relationship, and engaging somebody in service that is truly just 100 percent from the good of their heart,” Pfleiderer said.Those healthy relationships have translated into tangible results for Children’s Home. They had a successful back-to-school drive just a couple of months after Duroseau began working there last May. And their holiday toy drive, with an ambitious objective of helping between 400 children and 500 children enjoy presents at that time of year, met its goal.“It couldn’t have been done without Rachelle,” said Michelle Smith, administrative supervisor. She’s not sure how everything got done before Duroseau came on board, but now that she’s here, Smith wanted to make sure she was staying. Americorps volunteers are only in their positions for one year, though they can extend it another year if both parties agree. Smith didn’t want to wait until the end of her term to find out if they would get to keep Duroseau. “I have been asking for the past six months if she was going to renew,” she admitted. Much to the relief of her supervisors, Duroseau did want to stay. “The fact that she wanted to do a second year just made us all so happy,” Pfleiderer said. Duroseau is happy as well, and eager to continue working on projects and advancing the Children’s Home’s many goals throughout the year. With so many who need assistance, Duroseau believes she’s in the right position to do her part to help. “I do want to play as active a role as I can to alleviate suffering,” she said. “Even if it’s a small contribution I can make, it makes me feel good to be able to do that.” COURTESY OF CHILDREN’S HOME SOCIETY OF FLORIDARachelle Duroseau holds up the Champion of Service award she received on Feb. 5 at Governor Rick Scott’s cabinet meeting. In ad dition to Gov. Rick Scott, other government officials, her parents and Children’s Home representatives were in attendance.Children’s Home benefits from their ‘Champion of Service’

S peci sOur Florida lawns are becoming active once again, now that the weather is warmer and days are longer than 12 hours. This also means lots of calls and walk-ins to the UF/IFAS Pasco County Extension Office with questions about lawn care.Some of the more popular questions this year have been the use of pet and family-friendly alternatives to chemicals for control of lawn diseases. The best “alternative” to chemicals would be to prevent the disease from happening in the first place. The best way to prevent or reduce disease in your lawn is to use a lawn grass that’s less susceptible to disease combined with Florida-Friendly Landscaping Principles to manage the lawn properly. The first Florida-Friendly Landscaping Principle is to put the right plant in the right place. Selecting the right lawn grass suited to your specific site can greatly reduce the need for fertilizer, irrigation and pesticide usage. Watering your lawn only when needed not only helps to conserve this valuable resource, but also helps to reduce disease, since excessive moisture often encourages disease development. Mowing your lawn to the proper height, which for most of our common Florida lawn grasses is 3 inches to 4 inches high, all year round, is a must for a happier, healthier lawn. Fertilizing with the right fertilizer at the right time and in the right amount also greatly reduces the incidence of disease in your lawn. To make your lawn more pet and familyfriendly and lower the risk of disease, you can use compost on your lawn a source for nutrients, instead of fertilizer. Compost is organic matter made up of any number of manures, bone meal, dried blood, or plant and animal waste. Kitchen scraps are an excellent example of items around your house you can compost. There are compost bins and barrels that speed the microbial breakdown of these substances into nutrient rich, soil-like matter that can be spread among your plants and across your lawn. Lawn clippings left in place, instead of being raked up and thrown away, will compost inplace, and return nutrients back to the soil. Since these materials act as slow-release fertilizers, the nutrients don’t leach easily from the soil, or as quickly as fertilizer, and don’t contribute as much to water contamination making them much more environmentally and wallet-friendly. An added benefit of using compost on the lawn may be disease suppression. While there’s no definitive research to prove that adding compost helps reduce disease problems in the lawn, anecdotal evidence suggests there may be a benefit. Microbes that occur naturally within the soil can out compete those disease-causing microbes, especially when the lawn is healthy. Good microbes can produce inhibitory chemicals that can kill disease-causing microbes. Those good microbes come from compost. So, by adding compost to your lawn, you are not only adding plant nutrients, but potentially limiting the ability of disease-causing microbes to cause damage to your lawn. Because of the need for microbial activity, compost is more dependent on soil temperature and pH to help release the beneficial plant nutrients and produce the disease inhibiting chemicals, which benefits the lawn. If you choose to add compost to your lawn, here are some helpful hints: gone significant decay. Finished compost will smell “earthy” or “mushroom-like.” You should not be able to recognize what it was previously. kits are available at the Pasco County Extension Office. when the temperature is above 80 degrees fahrenheit to ensure the microbes are actively breaking it down and releasing the nutrients to the lawn. post in a process called “topdressing” over the existing lawn.

that’s coming. It’s just not here yet,” Aubin said. Like Our Lady of the Rosary, Van Dyke Church in Lutz and New Walk Church — which has campuses in Zephyrhills, Dade City and Holiday — also are expecting a big boost in attendance. “We’ll probably have basically a doubling of attendance,” said Rev. Matthew Hartsfield. We usually worship anywhere around 23 (hundred), 2,400, on a typical weekend. We’ll probably see 5,000 on Easter weekend,” said Hartsfield, pastor at Van Dyke Church, 17030 Lakeshore Road in Lutz.Leading up to Easter weekend, “we simply strongly encourage our members, our existing members to be inviting friends and relatives, acquaintances and neighbors and to simply be more intentional about just having kind of an open heart to people who might be willing to receive an invitation to come and celebrate Easter,” Hartsfield said.The service itself is very similar to a typical Van Dyke service, Hartsfield said. “We typically have a very high energy, high celebration time of music and worship and our messages are always positive and life-application oriented. We really don’t change much of that particular emphasis for Easter. We just simply have a very Easter-specific message,” Hartsfield said. However, there is a special children’s program at all of its Easter services that children attend while their parents are in the main sanctuary. In a society in which a growing number of people do not identify with any particular religious affiliation, Hartsfield said he thinks the best way to help encourage people to open their hearts is through making the love of Jesus real in their lives. “Truly, only the Holy Spirit can arouse the human heart. But obviously, the Holy Spirit uses human believers to help the rising of that in non-believing hearts,” Hartsfield said. “It’s really the way that Jesus himself said it would work,” Hartsfield said, citing a scriptural passage in which Jesus says that others will recognize his followers by how they love one another. “If the world is going to know that we’re his disciples and he ever existed, it’s going to be demonstrated by our acts of love and of mercy and compassion,” Hartsfield said. New Walk Church is expecting to nearly triple its normal attendance during Easter weekend, said Gary Baldus, lead pastor. Normally, the church has an attendance of 2,000, but it expects around 6,000 during Easter weekend. “We get that from a pretty big outreach that we do. We bring in a helicopter with eggs and they drop them,” Baldus said, noting there are other smaller activities, too. “We go a little extra because we know that people are more likely to attend on this weekend than many other weekends of the year,” Baldus said. He thinks that many people also attend Easter services because the mindset, “This is just what we do on Easter.” For some, it’s a “Get right with God weekend,” Baldus said. That may not be theologically accurate, but many people feel that way, Baldus said. New Walk is ready to welcome newcomers and invite them to get involved. “We do have our groups that we are launching on the next weekend that they can get connected to. We have a baptism the next weekend, that if they make a decision, they can come back to be baptized,” Baldus said. Some of those visiting for Easter services will undergo a transformation and begin attending regularly. Others may come back in a month or six weeks. “It is about life transformation through Jesus,” said Baldus, noting anyone who wants to find out more about the church’s services can visit Many other churches throughout Lutz, Odessa, Land O’ Lakes, Wesley Chapel, Dade City, San Antonio, New Tampa and Zephyrhills also are planning special celebrations, including Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church, 1833 Exciting Idlewild Blvd., in Lutz. Exciting Idlewild is planning four weekend celebrations. Two services are scheduled for April 4, at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., with Hungry Harry’s Family Bar-B-Que and food from the Idlewild Kitchen from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. On April 5, there will be two services at 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m., featuring Ken Whitten, the church’s senior pastor, and its worship choir, orchestra and band.

Dionos described the sign as “tasteful” and mimicking the Florida cracker style of architecture throughout the outlet mall. County Administrator Michele Baker said the county wants to help developers find a path to success. But she also said, “If you haven’t gotten the gist yet, Pasco does not like pylon signs, and we don’t like billboards.” it mastered. He’s been involved with music for about half his life, and he’s always displayed a natural ability toward playing. He has fun with both piano and cello, and can’t imagine going very long without having a chance to practice and play. Daniel prefers the challenge of performing alone, but he appreciates the chance to play with his brothers and to enjoy the dynamics of a group setting. “When I get to play with my brothers, I get to experience how to play as a group,” he said. He also has the chance to discover when to come together as a group and when to back out and let another person play solo, he said. Younger brother Anthony also likes playing with his brothers, but he prefers a different instrument. “I like the sound of the violin,” he said. “I like getting the notes in tune.” He started playing violin after seeing his brother, Nathaniel, play the instrument.And Nathaniel doesn’t mind that his little brother is following in his footsteps. While it’s a fun instrument to play, he said, it’s not easy.“Sometimes it’s hard, but I just have to learn it,” he said. While they love practicing a challenging piece of music and performing in front of people — there’s a recital for homeschooled students at the end of the month — the brothers do have other interests. They watch a little television and enjoy playing board games (“Clue” is a big hit in their house). But the soccer field is a main attraction, and the boys are eager to kick the ball when an instrument isn’t handy.No matter what they do, Rowena said the lessons learned from playing music stay with them and help them succeed in various activities. From math to soccer, improvement via consistent practice is a discipline that serves them well outside of music.And inside the house, the Dorseys find classical music to be a pleasant-sounding alternative to noisier activities for young boys. “It is very nice,” Rowena said. “I don’t have to worry that they’re glued to the TV. That doesn’t really grow their brain. I just know that this music is really helping them develop.”EASTER, from page 1A MUSIC, from page 1A OUTLETS, from page 1A 90 Pylon Height Study NORTHBOUNDVIEW W NORTHBOUND VIEW W Visibility Studies were done to determine the minimum letter height that would provide for the maximum impact, based on the speed of the traveler.

But she got much more than she expected. “I didn’t think that we were going to go undefeated at all,” Oliver said. But that’s precisely what the Wildcats did. They ran the table, going 13-0 on their way to a second straight league title, making Oliver two-for-two as girls’ basketball coach. She also coached the boys’ basketball team for two years before taking over the girls’ squad. They had a perfect season, but it wasn’t an easy climb. As one of the smaller schools in the league, Academy at the Lakes has to deal with not only bigger schools, but older players as well. The Middle Division includes players from fifth-grade through eighthgrade, but since the academy also has a varsity team, their best players often get selected to that squad. That means they often have fifthand sixth-graders facing eighthgraders from schools without a varsity program. For Oliver, that meant using her team’s speed to overcome a size advantage from opponents. “My girls can run,” she said. “Every time we got a rebound, we had our fast break in.” Taking advantage of rebounds and fast breaks was key to their success, she said. Since that level of basketball often has lowscoring games (many teams don’t even score 20 points), every possession is important. They were able to outrun many of their opponents, but they had some close calls. Performing under pressure was good for the team, and it demonstrated players were able to follow the coach’s guidance and execute when necessary, Oliver said. “I called the timeouts, I tell them what our play is and what our plan is, and they listened to me,” she said. Listening to the coach was easy for Kendra Falby, a sixth-grader. Falby described her coach this way: “She just says it like it is. She doesn’t sugarcoat it and water it down. She just gets to the point right away.” That coaching style means the team has clear goals and knows what it has to do to succeed. It also means tough practices, but that’s what was necessary to build on last year’s campaign. Falby, who played for the team last season, is a softball player at heart, but really grew into her role with the basketball team. She scored nine points in the championship game against St. John’s. Getting better meant taking the coach’s advice and trying some unusual methods, Falby said. Falby practiced her shooting and lay-up mechanics at home. Falby also listened to her coach, who wanted her to try using her left hand for those plays. The player said she would even eat with her left hand to get comfortable using it, which made shooting and going for lay-ups as a lefty more natural. That kind of effort made a secondstraight title all the more satisfying. “It felt amazing because all the hard work we put into it,” Falby said. “It just showed how much I really did care.” The girls cared so much that they made a special deal with their coach: If they won a second straight championship, Oliver would have special shirts made for them. They won, and now they have championship souvenirs as well. The coach said she was happy to provide the shirts, and to commemorate back-to-back championships and a perfect season. “They just worked really hard. They put in extra time and did anything I asked them to do,” Oliver said. “They’re awesome kids.” COURTESY OF ACADEMY AT THE LAKESThe Academy at the Lakes Middle Division girls’ basketball team claimed its second consecutive league championship by achieving a perfect season.

The church is located on Old Lakeland Highway in the Richland area.FRED BELLET/PHOTOSAfter finding about a half basketful of Easter eggs, Faith Gill, 12, of Zephyrhills heads back to the Richland Assembly of God fellowship hall to open the plastic eggs and find out how many pieces of candy she would receive.Richland Assembly of God Church member Jim Rhoades, of Kathleen, is determined to hide Easter eggs on the church property for the second annual Easter Egg Hunt. About 20 kids turned out to look for the colorful plastic eggs.About 20 area youths scoured the property at Richland Assembly of God Church, seeking out colorful Easter eggs during the church’s egg hunt. Many eggs were in conspicuous places, and once the kids pried them open, they found a piece of paper telling them how many pieces of candy they’d get. The kids seemed to be having fun, as they ran around looking for eggs in the church’s second annual Easter Egg Hunt. Six-month-old Emersyn Freed is curious about the taste of her first plastic Easter egg. She accompanied her parents, Crystal Jernigan of Zephyrhills and Kevin Freed of Dade City, to an Easter Egg Hunt hosted by the Richland Assembly of God Church. The colorful eggs were loaded with slips of paper — some saying how many pieces of candy the egg was worth and others containing prize slips. A.J. Potwin, 7, of Dade City, had quite a haul. Here, he chooses the candy of his liking and loads his bag using an overhead technique. Nine-year-old Lane Boybstan, of Zephyrhills, waits his turn to trade in his Easter eggs for candy during the Richland Assembly of God Easter Egg Hunt. Church member David Burger, of Dade City, assumes the role of Cranky the Pirate, as he hands out candy. Kids emerge from the fellowship hall and run to the area of the Easter egg hunt on the grounds of the Richland Assembly of God Church on Old Lakeland Highway.

She’s vying for your attention Tips for teaching your dog what to chewOne of the ways dogs explore the world is by chewing. Which can be problematic, of course, for the dog’s owner. The Humane Society of the United States has developed a list of tips that can help you teach your dog what’s appropriate to chew and what isn’t. Here are some suggestions from that organization. Understand why dogs chew. Puppies, like babies, learn about the world by putting things in their mouths. They also teethe for several months, which tends to create discomfort. Chewing helps with teething and makes their gums feel better. Adult dogs may engage in destructive chewing for a number of reasons. To deal with that, you must figure out why your dog is chewing. Here are some possible reasons: chew and what not to chew. You may need to consult a behavior professional for help with both separation anxiety and fear-related behaviors. You can teach your dog what can be chewed and what is off limits. If you don’t want your dog to chew something, keep it out of your dog’s reach. Also, give your dog toys that are easy to distinguish from household goods. Don’t confuse your pet by offering it socks or shoes as toys and then expecting it to understand the difference between the shoe that’s OK to chew and the one that isn’t. If you catch your dog chewing on somewith a loud noise. Offer him an acceptable chew toy instead, and praise him lavishly when he takes the toy in his mouth. For more useful tips, you can visit

But County Administrator Michele Baker and Sheriff Chris Nocco say they will try to mend what Nocco describes as a “broken partnership.” That could mean tweaking the nearly two-year-old agreement that brought the emergency call center under the county’s supervision. “We’ll sit down immediately and go through the interlocal agreement and bring something back (to the commissioners),” said Baker in response to criticisms about the call center’s operations. Nocco would like management hires for the center to be shared equally between his office and the county, with each having a veto. His immediate concern is hiring a director. The position has been vacant since the resignation of its first director in September. Nocco also wants a lieutenant from his office to be named assistant director. Baker said she supports the request, calling it “brilliant.” She also assured Nocco he would be consulted on the director’s selection. The sheriff brought his concerns about the call center to county commissioners at their March 24 meeting. First responders, including deputies and firefighters, filled the boardroom. “That’s all we want is a partnership,” Nocco said. “The reason we are speaking up is because the partnership has failed.” Among complaints were a lack of leadership, training, quality control and urgency in responding to 911 calls. Nocco and some of his deputies cited troubling incidents. They said a deputy was sent to the wrong address. A dispatcher delayed passing along a resident’s tip that might have led to the arrest of a murder suspect. A dispatcher advised a woman caller to step outside her house to see if a man armed with a knife was still present. A dispatcher ignored a deputy’s request for backup at a crime scene. And residents have complained about unanswered and dropped calls. “Those are unfortunate situations, and our operators were wrong,” Baker said But she defended the overall progress and operations of the call center. It meets industry standards with more than 99 percent of calls answered within 20 seconds, she said. “The staff who work in that communications center are great people,” Baker said. “They are feeling a little maligned right now because they are struggling.” Prior to the merger, Baker as then-assistant county administrator participated in a study of other call centers that dealt with consolidation. Generally the process took three years to four years, Baker said. Pasco opted to accelerate that time frame and is now a year-and-a-half into the merger, she added. On March 31, eight new hires were scheduled to begin working at the call center. New dispatching software also is ready for use. And she said 100 percent of staff members are crosstrained in working with law enforcement, medical and fire rescue calls.“Are they really experienced yet? Not so much,” Baker said. “But it takes time to become comfortable.” Nocco said training for new hires is insufficient, and some basics, such as drug testing, are overlooked. Commissioner Mike Wells Jr., said he found the hiring and training process for the call center “alarming. We need to relook at these things. We need the best of the best.”Pasco 911 center needs improvement Chris Nocco Michele Baker Team Tax Collector hoists trophyMembers of Team Tax Collector took possession of the Chasco Fiesta Hunger Walk’s first place trophy on March 14. The Pasco County Tax Collector’s team had 38 participants who raised a total of $3,905 for the campaign. The trophy will be on traveling display in each of the five tax collector’s offices throughout the year. Pasco approves trust fund to spur economyPasco County will use an estimated $45 million in Penny for Pasco funds to spur job creation and economic development in the county. The Pasco County Commission approved establishing the Jobs and Economic Opportunities Trust Fund on March 24, according to a news release. The resolution commissioners adopted creates the trust fund and economic growth program. Pasco’s Office of Economic Growth is preparing to accept applications from developers and landowners to receive funds for projects, the release says. The trust fund allows the county to make an investment in projects that promote longterm economic growth and community vitality through programs such as “ready sites” or “shell buildings.” Pasco County wants to use the trust fund to attract companies that need space for their businesses, or are looking for sites that are ready to develop. Having ready sites or spaces available for prospects will enable Pasco County to market and respond to leads that are currently missed opportunities, the release says. Companies also want to see a quicker return on their capital investment. The quicker the prospect is actively running their operations, the quicker they can turn a profit. Intensifying the demand for ready sites is the fact that decision-making time frames of the prospects are shorter than they were in years past. Companies are not willing to wait for communities to find appropriate sites or buildings to determine suitability for development. That due diligence needs to be done before the prospect comes to the door.“The Jobs and Economic Opportunities Trust Fund and Pasco’s Economic Growth Program could be the most exciting and innovative economic development program in the Tampa Bay Region or the state of Florida,” Michele Baker, Pasco’s county administrator, says in the release. “I believe this will make Pasco County even more attractive for a company looking to relocate or expand.”When voters overwhelmingly approved the Penny for Pasco Renewal on Nov. 6, 2012, the county became able to increase its business recruitment efforts. “Once again, we would like to express our appreciation to the voters of Pasco County, for renewing the Penny for Pasco, and adding in an element to fund economic development projects,” noted Pasco County Commission Chairman Ted Schrader, in the release. “Providing the environment to increase the number of higher-wage paying jobs is one of the priorities of our strategic plan, and something our residents deserve.” Besides approving the resolution to create the trust fund, commissioners passed another resolution to create the Jobs and Economic Opportunities Committee. That committee will provide oversight to funded projects. The Office of Economic Growth will be accepting applications for interested persons from the manufacturing, real estate, banking/finance, agricultural, or other private industry, and from the general public, as well.
