Samaritan Project

offers a roof

and direction

Church houses only such
facility in east Pasco

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

From the beginning, Eric Gilbertson
wanted to make the Samaritan Project dif-
ferent from other homeless shelters.
"This is my passion," Gilbertson, 43,
said."I was homeless when I was 15 to 19
years old and saw what it was like at
other homeless shelters. I wanted this to
be more than just a place to go for a meal.
I wanted it to help people find a way to
get back on their feet."
The project started in 2008 and was
run out of the Zephyrhills Chamber of
Commerce, but a space conflict forced a
move. Tim Mitchell, senior pastor at
Chancey Road Christian Church located
at 34921 Chancey Road in Zephyrhills,
brought it to the church.
"We see this as what we're just sup-
posed to do as Christians," Mitchell said.
"The Bible tells us when we offer cool
water, shelter, clothing or food in the
name of Jesus we are doing his work. So

From mammoth malls to quaint mom and pops, area shoppers went hunting for deals
during the holiday weekend. The day after Thanksgiving marks Black Friday, a time to
work off those mashed potatoes and start stocking up on gifts for the season. We spent
the day with bargain hunters from Lutz to Zephyrhills.

Black Friday shopper Luis Galarza, pictured

around Zephyrhills with his family. One stop
- the Bealls Outlet onAllen Road.The outlet
store opened its doors at 6 a.m. luring holiday
shoppers with huge doorbuster specials, 70

On his first trip, Galarza explained he,"Had
to park way in the back in the parking lot.
Then, got behind a lady in checkout line with
five shopping carts!" However, he was happy
that he had found a great deal at Bealls Outlet
on a PlayStation 3 and Guitar Hero game.
His family did not enjoy their Walmart ex-
perience stating they would, "Never do
Walmart again for Black Friday."


After two-hours of shopping, Nathan Hunter and
Jaclyn"Niki" Rice of Dade City left the long check-
out line they were in around 2 a.m. at the
Zephyrhills Walmart and had the customer
service/returns counter check them out instead.
Finished, they said they would "definitely not" do

Toys for Tots

spreads

holiday cheer

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs. com

Each year,Toys for Tots allows thou-
sands of needy children in Pasco and
Hillsborough counties to have that mo-
ment of excitement while opening
presents Christmas morning.
The need for the program has be-
come even greater in recent years and
East Pasco Toys for Tots coordinator Bob
Loring did not want to run out of gifts
like the program did in 2002.
"That year at the Dade City distribu-
tion we ran out of toys early," Loring
said. "It broke my heart that we could
not assist many of our folks. I still have
that nightmare from time to time.
"We expect more requests for assis-
tance than ever before and I'm hoping
everyone will give something to help a
child have a Christmas," Loring contin-
ued. "The reasons are self evident. Bad
economy, forecloses and layoffs are ram-
pant throughout our fair community"
The East Pasco chapter covers the en-
tire county east of US 41. Loring is
expecting 4,500 children to be registered
for help this year.The story is similar in
Hillsborough, where Sgt. Anton Spivey
will not be surprised if record numbers
turn out for help.
"The need is just so great right now,"
said Spivey,Toys forTots volunteer with
the Tampa chapter. "You hear from hun-
dreds of parents each day who want to
make sure their kids have something spe-
cial on Christmas."
Both volunteers are or were involved
with the Marines, which started the pro-
gram in 1947.

How to help
Toys for Tots will hold mailbox toy drives
on Saturday, Dec.4 to help collect enough
gifts for the thousands of children. It is the
largest drive for the program each year.To
donate to the cause, place new, un-
wrapped toys by a home mailbox and the
mail carrier will bring it to the nearest
chapter.All toys must be new and un-
wrapped to be accepted.

Roughly 60 relatives and friends were

themselves with turkey and side dishes,
playing games,laughing, chatting and check-

"We just had a really nice time," Linda

Wesley Chapel arts center offers enlightening entertainment


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

The patrons file in and find their seats.
The lights dim. The show begins at the
Pasco County Schools Center for the Arts at
Wesley Chapel.
On any given day the performance could
feature a magician, a saxophone player, bal-
let dancers or singers.
But these aren't just any entertainers.
The magician, Bradley Fields, has ap-
peared on international stages and uses
magic feats to promote mathematics skills
and problem-solving in his showed called
"MatheMagic."
The saxophone player, Eric Darius, is
Blue Note jazz musician who did a clinic to
help aspiring young musicians, in an addi-
tion to doing two performances.
The ballet dancers from DanzAmerica's
Project Inc., presented Tchaikovsky's classic
fairy-tale ballet,"The Nutcracker" and will do
an encore this year.The performances fea-
ture dancers from America's Ballet in New
Tampa. Performances are scheduled for Dec.
9-10 for Pasco County students and on Dec.
10-11 for the general public.
Numerous student performances occur
on the center's stage, including a recent
music concert by a group of 220 kinder-
garten through fifth-graders from
Connerton Elementary, under the direction
of music teachers Kristen Hillstrom and
Barbara Falkingham.
Those children are among students from
43 elementary, middle and high schools
from Land O'Lakes east to Zephyrhills, who
take advantage of the professional theater
located on the campus of Wesley Chapel
High School, 30651 Wells Road.
The center, which celebrates its 10th
year this year, offers incredible educational
opportunities for students, said Patrick L.
McDermott, the center's director.
The recent visit by Eric Darius offers a
prime example of the benefit that students

derive from the performing arts center,
McDermott said.
Not only did Darius wow the crowds
with his performances, he also did a clinic
with aspiring musicians from Charles S.
Rushe Middle School,Wesley Chapel High
School, Sunlake High School and Pine View
Middle School.
"Eric Darius is an amazing musician and
a fantastic showman," McDermott noted in
an e-mail following the musician's two
shows."Both the matinee student audience
and the evening public audience were
blown away by this fantastic concert."
McDermott also raves about Fields, the
performer who teaches mathematics
through magic.
Fields, who is set to appear at the center
again on Jan. 27, applauds Pasco County


Schools for giving students the opportunity
to learn through the arts.
Schools make a mistake if they focus
only on preparing students to take tests, at
the expense of the arts, said Fields, who, in
addition to being a magician is also a former
NewYork City school teacher.
"What makes a difference is real, live per-
formances," Fields said. "Nobody knows
where a kid is coming from, or where they
are going," he said,noting his show is intend-
ed to inspire kids and provoke them to think.
"I might have a 1,000 in a crowd," Fields
said."Maybe one or two will have their lives
completely turned around."
The Pasco County Schools Center for the
Arts offers an excellent venue for shows
both large and small, McDermott said. It can
handle virtually any show - but can't afford


to offer the more expensive Broadway
shows because it would take too many per-
formances to cover the costs.
Working out the schedule for the 927-
seat theater is like putting together a jigsaw
puzzle,he said. Last year, the center had 260
productions.
Every year, McDermott books between
12-15 professional groups to perform for
students, the general public, or both. The
shows come from places like Toronto,
London, Dallas, California, NewYork, Omaha
and other places.
"I think this is one of the jewels of the
Pasco County school district," McDermott
said.
The theater is well equipped. It has a 48-
by-35-foot stage, a 48-channel sound board, a
large dressing room and two smaller dress-
ing rooms for the production's principal
players. It has tall doors on the side of the
building to enable large sets to be moved in
and out.
Unlike most stages, which drop straight
down, this one has steps leading down into
the theater.That allows actors to walk out
into the audience and enables singers to use
the stairs as risers.
The stage is also used for special events,
McDermott said, noting music teachers
from Wesley Chapel, Seven Oaks and
Watergrass elementary schools put on a
Broadway Spectacular each year to raise
money for the schools.
"Their level of musicianship is amazing,"
said McDermott, who has a master's in
music composition and used to play trum-
pet in orchestras for Broadway musicals.
Besides providing performances for stu-
dents at a nominal charge, the center also
hosts public performances at much lower
prices than many other professional the-
aters, McDermott said.

ter, its upcoming schedule and ticket

Like snowflakes, no two trees are alike


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Choosing a Christmas tree is pretty simple,right?
Well, that depends.
Do you want a Frasier fir or a Douglas fir? A blue spruce or
a Scotch pine. Maybe you're in the market for a white pine.
So, what's the difference?
Matt Marsh, who works at a tree lot on SR 54,just west of
Collier Parkway in Land O'Lakes, said"the best-selling tree" on
his lot is a Frasier fir. People tend to like the shape of the tree
and they have nice branches upon which to hang ornaments,
he said.
Douglas firs are bushier and have a nice fragrance, he said.
Blue spruces have a nice shape, but sharp needles.
And Scotch pines are quite durable, but have very little
scent, Marsh said.
In the end, it's generally boils down to customer prefer-
ence and the space they need to fill, Marsh said.
"Some people want a real skinny tree," Marsh said, while
others prefer plump trees.
Super large trees typically find a home at a church or hotel
or other place that needs to fill a big space, he said.
Prices can vary, too.
At his lot, the Scotch pines sell in the $30 range, while the
other trees generally go for about $10 a foot. However, Marsh
noted, prices are negotiable.
Christmas tree lots were just beginning to pop up around
northern Hillsborough and Central Pasco last week. No lots
were easily visible from the main roads in Zephyrhills, and
just one stand was going up on SR 54 near Interstate 75 in
Wesley Chapel.
A lot had been set up at Gaither High and also at the Seal
Swim School on North Dale Mabry Highway in Lutz.Another
lot was operating on North Florida
Avenue, just north of BearssAvenue.
Sales for fresh trees usually peak
around Thanksgiving and continue at a
good clip for the next couple of weeks,
Marsh said.
The trees at the lot where Marsh
works are trucked in from Michigan and
new shipments will come throughout the
season to replenish the supply.
When the trees arrive, they often still
have snow on their branches, Marsh said. . -
"Some have birds' nests in them." A look at a tree lol


Matt Marsh stands near some of the taller trees at the lot
where he works on SR 54 near Collier Parkway in Land
O' Lakes. The larger trees usually are purchased by
churches, hotels and other places with large spaces, he
said. (Photos by B.C. Manion)


t before the rush begins to find that perfect tree.


Tips for choosing a fresh
Christmas tree
The rush is on to find that perfect
Christmas tree - a time-old tradition for
many families, churches and businesses. If
you're in the market for a fresh tree,
these tips from the National Christmas
Tree Association may come in handy:
* Be sure you know what size (height
and width) you need before heading to
the retail lot.
* If you want to learn about the species of
trees that are popular in your area, browse
the National Christmas Tree Association's
website, www.realchristmastrees.org before
heading to the retail lot.
* Go to a retail lot that is well-lit and
stores trees in a shaded area.
*Ask the retailer when he or she gets
his or her trees.Are they delivered at
the beginning of the season, or do they
come in several shipments throughout
the season?
* Look for indicators of dryness or dete-
rioration such as excessive needle loss,
musty odor, discolored foliage or wrin-
kled bark.A good rule of thumb: If
you're not sure a tree is fresh, choose
another one. If none of the trees on the
lot look fresh, go shopping elsewhere.


Maintenance and safety tips
* Get a fresh cut on the trunk of the tree before leaving
the tree lot. A fresh cut will help the tree absorb water.
* Put your tree in a sturdy stand to keep it from toppling
over. Fill the base with water and replenish it frequently.
* Use a tree skirt to help make it easier to clean up the
needles that drop from the tree.
* Use only indoor lights on the tree.To prevent potential
fires, check for broken or cracked sockets, frayed or bare
wires, or loose connections. If a light string is damaged,
don't use it.Avoid overloading extension cords.
*Turn off tree lights and decorations when you go to bed
or leave the house.

Resident speaks out about transportation


Dear Editor:
I was reading the article on how the
transit plan was shot down by
Hillsborough and to me I think for good
reason. Light rail is not the answer, being
from New Jersey and all, the money they
spent on the light rail there is very under
utilized because it is too slow. I think a sys-
tem like the PATH that goes between New
Jersey and New York is more what we
need to bring commuters into Tampa and
off the roads.
Light rail still has a use, but to go from
sayThe Shops atWiregrass down Bruce B.
Downs and into Tampa would take an
hour with the stops. Light rail is very good
for in city, but it is not good for runs more
than 10 miles.


Maybe they want it to be different, but
the planning board should take a trip to
NewYork City and check out what they
did. Not saying everything in the tri-state
area works great, but they move a ton of
people by train. I think the people are
right to shoot down light rail. It is slow
and not the best option. It is looked at as
the cheapest option to get some kind of
mass transit going.
The board needs to rethink their plan
and think about a real elevated subway
style train that is faster and holds more
people; going to cost more, but let's do it
right the first time.

Planners contemplate more connected region


Three state studies focus on
Pasco, northern Hillsborough

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Rail systems have come to dominate the
conversation for public transportation in re-
cent months, but that is not the only way to
increase movement in Pasco and northern
Hillsborough counties.
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is currently funding
three studies on transportation corridors in
conjunction with the Tampa Bay Area
Regional Transportation Authority (TBAR-
TA).The affected roads include:
-SR 54/56
-Veterans Expressway/Suncoast Parkway
-Bruce B. Downs Boulevard
The SR 54/56 corridor study began last
December and is scheduled to take two
years. Elba Lopez, FDOT's public transit/in-
termodal administrator for the area, said the
goal is to decide if the 30 miles between
Wesley Chapel and New Port Richey would
benefit from managed traffic lanes for ex-
press bus travel.
"Managed lanes just means lanes devoted
to buses and could also be used for carpool-
ers," Lopez said."That allows the buses to get
through during peak levels of traffic and so
they don't slow down traffic either. There
isn't a set number of stops or anything like
that yet.That corridor was identified as one
of the priority one areas by the Regional
Transportation Master Plan."
Lopez said some of the reasons the area
has been designated as priority one is the
number of people that travel the corridor
and the potential for growth in the coming
years.
The boundaries for the project are Bruce
B. Downs Boulevard, also known as CR 581,


to US 19.The study is being done by RS&H
at a cost of $500,000.
At this point, about 18 alternative plans
have been proposed for the corridor. Once
the more realistic ones are identified, FDOT
will discuss them with the various stake-
holders and the public.
In another study, the more than 100
miles of the Veterans Expressway/Suncoast
Parkway from Tampa to Inverness in Citrus
County is also being looked at for an ex-
press bus route with managed lanes. That
study, which comes in at a price of
$530,000, started very recently and is many
months from completion, according to
Lopez.
The last and most expensive study in-
volves Bruce B. Downs from SR 54 inWesley
Chapel south to the University of South
Florida, a stretch of about 50 miles.This proj-
ect has more than just buses as a potential
conclusion.
"That's looking at bringing possible
short-distance rail," Lopez said."It's just con-
ceptualizing it at this point. It's not like
tomorrow we'll be putting down rails or
anything like that, but it's looking at the pos-
sibility."
That rail study is only two months in and
comes in at a $1.7 million price tag.
Stops along a future rail route are also
not set, but stops in the area could include
the Grove at Wesley Chapel, The Shops at
Wiregrass and University Community
Hospital.
FDOT spokeswoman Kris Carson said
the public will be able to voice their opin-
ions and get more information on the
future of these corridors at later public
meetings.
Information on these three studies or
anything else related to the master plan is
available on the TBARTA website,www.tbar-
ta.com.The public can give their opinions
and concerns there as well.

HEALTH & WELLNESS


Wesley Chapel hospital moves forward


The Pasco County Development Review
Committee unanimously approved the plan
for the futureWesley Chapel Medical Center
Nov 18.
The facility will be the first full-service
hospital in Wesley Chapel and is expected
to break ground in the coming weeks. It will
be built on the east side of Bruce B. Downs
Boulevard just north of the intersection of
SR 56.
"The other commissioners and myself
expected it to be approved without any
problems, but you never know until it's
voted on," said Pasco commission chair-
woman Pat Mulieri. She then added,"It will
be important to the healthcare of our citi-


zens and will bring about 400 jobs too."
Now the commission will vote to give
final approval to the facility, provided no un-
expected problems arise.
The facility will open with 80 beds and
three stories, but is designed to easily add
up to six stories as the need develops. It will
include obstetrics, pediatrics and general
surgery, women's and men's services, ortho-
pedics, sports medicine and other services.
The Wesley Chapel hospital was original-
ly planned as a joint venture between the
Adventist Health System and University
Community Health, but the two merged in
September.

Hospital puts emergency room wait times online


Pasco Regional Medical Center (PRMC)
in Dade City now has a way for people to
check the wait times for the emergency
room online.The program is part of the ER
Extra program, a measure designed to ensure
patients get fast care. PRMC wait times are
available at www.PascoRegionalmc.com.
"We know that quality and speed of
care are important to our patients," said
Dr. David Wilcher, PRMC emergency
room medical director."At Pasco Regional
Medical Center, we believe that giving pa-
tients access to ER wait times is just one
more way we can improve the level of
service we provide every day to those in
our community."
This service also allows patients who
believe their situation does not require
emergency care to access wait times and
choose the best point to see a medical
professional.
"Over the years we have heard from
our patients that long wait times in the
ER have become a source of frustration,"
said Marge Keck, PRMC director of emer-


ERO EXTRA'"
Close By. Far Better.

agency services. "At Pasco Regional we
wanted to be part of the solution. The
goal is to make our patients' experience
in the ER as streamlined and efficient as
possible.
"We implemented this important tool
because at Pasco Regional, we believe
giving patients access to ER waiting times
enables them to make better, more in-
formed choices about their personal
medical care," Keck continued.
The on-line ER wait time is calculated
to approximate the time it takes to see a
qualified health care professional and is
updated in real time.
ER Extra at PRMC has a door-to-dis-
charge time of two hours or less, which
places it well above most emergency
rooms nationally that average three hours
or more.

Lutz Arts and Crafts Festival looks to rebound


Lutz Arts and
Crafts Festival


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Lutz Arts and Crafts Festival organizers
are hoping for nicer weather and a larger
turnout after a 2009 event where atten-
dance was less than half its normal total.
An estimated 35,000 to 40,000 people
attend the two-day event each year, making
it the largest Hillsborough County art fair
after the GasparillaArt Festival.
However, last year a combination of bad
weather on the first day and a new $2 fee
per vehicle to enter the park imposed by
the Hillsborough Parks, Recreation and
Conservation Department brought that
number to about 15,000. Edwina Kraemer,
president of the GFWC Lutz-Land O' Lakes
Women's Club, thinks the number will re-
bound from last year's low turnout.
"It's a fabulous festival with a family-
friendly atmosphere," said Kraemer."It's a
great place to do your Christmas or holiday
shopping for everyone on your list.There
are people who sell toys and clothes for ba-

great thing is the artists
there are the people who
made it. They don't buy
things and resell them."
The event, which is or-
ganized by the women's
club, is always the first
weekend in December,
which is Dec. 4-5 this Jack Beverland
year.Admission is free for at the Lutz Arts

volved with the event.
The club was not in charge of the event
back at the beginning, but has been its or-
ganizer for the 31st time this year.
"The festival started at the Old Lutz
School on (US) 41 and later moved to the
train depot across the street,"
said Lutz resident Shirley
SSimmons, co-chairwoman for
the event."It moved to Lake Park
about 10 years ago. We'll have
260 vendors and several spots
we give 20 to local groups for
free. We're all full for vendors
and even have a waiting list in
case people drop out."
The Lutz Patriots, Relay For
Life and the Boy Scouts are
some of those who get free
spots.
Kraemer, who was the Lutz
Guv'na in 2006, first learned of
the event before becoming a
club member.

Kraemer moved to Lutz from
Carrollwood six years ago. She is a retired
science teacher who taught at Gaither
High during its first year in 1984.
Simmons said there will be vendors
from Lutz, Land O' Lakes, Odessa,Wesley
Chapel, Zephyrhills, Dade
City and New Tampa at
the event.
Land O' Lakes resident
April Demulia has gone to
the craft show for the last
few years and loves
everything about it.
"I've lived in Michigan,
New York and
Pennsylvania and this is
the only place I've seen a
craft show as awesome as

has something for everyone, including
great food."
Vendors will be selling traditional and
not so traditional festival foods, such as bar-
becue, kettle corn, funnel cakes,
sandwiches, hot dogs, breakfast breads, ice
cream and homemade baked goods.
Kraemer explained the Lutz festival has
three goals: to give the community a fun
local event, to give artists a place to display
and sell their products and for the club to
raise money to give back into the commu-
nity.
"Everything we collect from booth sales
will go to great groups in the community,"
said Kraemer. "We give money to Boy and
Girl Scout troops, the Civil Air Patrol, to
youth scholarships, to the Lutz volunteer
fire department, to the Lutz (Branch)
Library and others."

Get Started on Your New Year's Goals NOW!


And Still Enjoy Yourself

I will show you 3 basics you can apply right now
to enjoy the holidays WITHOUT the extra weight!


I knew I needed help to change - Do you?


"I feel so different than I did two
years ago. My body now craves
healthy food instead of sweets and
junk food. I've maintained my weight
loss for 30 months and it's become
pretty easy because I am in control of
myself and like the person I've
become. I USED to go shopping to
look for clothes that would make me
look good. But guess what - nothing
really did. I had to change my body to
do that.
I am in the BEST shape of my life.
Your health affects your moods, emo-
tions, energy. As women, we look after


life physically and it was affecting me
on many levels - my health, mentally,
emotionally and in my relationships. I
tried to lose weight MANY times but
I could never keep the pounds off. I
would always go back to my old way
of eating and the weight would come
back on - and more.
Calling Samantha was the best
decision I've ever made. I needed help
to change. Samantha told me if I put
time and effort in her plan, it would
work.
After seven months of following
Samatha's program,


everyone else in our lives before we I had lost 55 lbs and ,,Ong ils

also take care of yourself, you won't kept it off for

And you won't feel good about your- Thanks

When I finally called Samantha in

Q . What is Insta-SightTM Cataract Surgery?
- J.A.K.
A Insta-SightTM Cataract Surgery is the removal of the
. cataract without the use of needles (injections around the
eye), patches or stitches.

Q . Why use Insta-SightTM Cataract Surgery?
- D.L.G.
A . Insta-SightTM is used because it provides vision instantly
After cataract surgery. It is the safest procedure. High
risk patients that are taking aspirin or anticoagulants do not stop
these medications before surgery so there is less of a chance of
a heart attack or stroke. Since there are no injections around the
eye, there is no chance of inadvertent misdirected injection into
the eye which can cause blindness. Without injections, there is
less of a chance of double vision or droopy lids which may be
the result of injections. I have been performing Insta-Sight
Cataract Surgery since 1992.

Now that's a big fish!

Lord, Lord waddnat a fish.
-Louis Armstrong

By Randall Grantham
Community Columnist
It was the dead
middle of
November. The first
cold front had come
and gone. The
weather was typical
Tampa perfect.
Highs in the upper
70s. No clouds and a
light breeze out of the north-northeast.
We'd had no significant rain in over a
month and a half, so the water conditions
and visibility were great. Peter and I set out
from Tarpon Springs with a new set of
numbers and no curfew.
I had seen my buddy Ray Odor earlier
in the week to get a new stringer and got
to talking to him, telling him where we
were going that weekend.The man was in
a good mood and, as I was leaving, he
looked at me with a grin and said,"Do you
want a number?" Having tried and tried to
get a few coordinates out of the old master
before, without success, I jumped at the
offer."Come on in,"he said as we sat down
and he booted up his computer to find us
a spot.
Heading out towards Pedestal Rock, the
barges were on the way so we decided to
roll-over on a couple of them before head-
ing out deeper. As I hit the 68 degree
water and surface for my spear gun, I tell
Peter,"Thank God for wetsuits," before de-
scending.
The first barge I dropped on was pretty
well decayed.A few struts and plates and a
lot of fish. I watched a few legal-sized
grouper swim off and bagged a nice
Sheepie and a Hog Snapper before coming
up to let Peter take a look. Before I came
up, I saw what I thought, at the time, to be
a pretty nice sized goliath grouper, or jew-
fish, as they used to be called. It was about
five feet long.
After Peter came up, we motored over
towards a second barge, but before we got
there, a huge mass popped up on the bot-
tom-feeler and, with the water as clear as it
was, we could see that we were sitting on
something big. It was another, newer
barge. From the surface it looked like a tall
mound of white rocks or shells. But when
we dropped on it, we found that the
"shells" were actually millions, or even bil-
lions, of shiny threadfins and other baitfish,
massing around the barge.


I followed Peter in and, as I swam near-
ly blindly through the masses of baitfish, I
kept hearing a "WHOMP" sound.As I ven-
tured into the barge's midsection in hopes
of getting out of the cloud of bait and
maybe finding a decent sized fish, I startled
one of the biggest goliaths I had ever seen.
I say I startled it, but let me tell you, it
more than startled me.
I found that it, and its brethren, were
the source of the "WHOMP" sound. The
fish are so big, and they can displace so
much water, when they are feeling "territo-
rial," they pump their swim-bladder and
cause a"sonic boom" under water.
There were no fewer that 10-12 of
those giants on that wreck.The five-foot
one we had seen at the other barge must
have been a baby that had wandered off
from the family picnic, because all of these
were at least six feet and up to eight or
more feet long. And they were every-
where! Every time we got too close to
one, we would hear and feel the
"WHOMP' as they maneuvered out of our
path.
Peter and I worked the wreck for
awhile, taking turns running into the gi-
ants at all parts of the structure until we
decided to surface. Once on board the
boat, our eyes wide with wonder, all we
could do was shake our heads in disbelief.
Finally Peter put it into words that seemed
to do it justice. He said, "That was like
Jurassic Park, man!" Indeed. Those crea-
tures seemed like dinosaurs, each one
outweighing us by several hundred
pounds.
This was only the second time I'd dove
with fish bigger than me. The first time
was at Disney's Living Seas at Epcot and
there I felt safe in the perimeter of an
amusement park.This was no amusement
park. [Very large goliath grouper have
been observed to stalk divers and even
conduct unsuccessful ambushes. Large in-
dividuals of this species should be treated
with caution.]
A couple of decades ago, they said jew-
fish, or GG, were on the brink of
extinction.Well, from what I've seen, the
species has made a great rebound. And,
just like alligators, I think they've come
back enough to be reminded of who sits
at the top of the food chain. Because
grouper is grouper. And no matter what
you call it, it's good eats!

Bond restructuring expected

to revitalize New River project


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
New River Township, a development on
SR 54 inWesley Chapel which came to a vir-
tual standstill during the housing crisis, is
now getting a jumpstart thanks to a deal in-
volving $20 million in community district
development bonds.
The bond deal took about two years to
consummate, according to a news release
from the Avalon Park Group, the project's
developer.
"The bond restructuring took time be-
cause it was complicated," said Eric Marks,
senior vice president atAvalon Park Group.
That deal, coupled with homebuilder inter-
est, is revitalizing the project, he said.
"Now you've got bonds that are appro-
priately sized for the market," Marks said.
"We have a lot of builder interest," Marks
said, noting talks have been ongoing with
local and national homebuilders. He expects
to be able to announce the names of home-
builders soon.
Marks said he's aware that the housing


market remains challenging, but he said the
houses will be competitively priced. He's
also optimistic that the new activity is be-
ginning at a time when the housing market
is beginning to recover.
Development of 365 lots and a club-
house with pool have been completed for
the new phase. Only four homes currently
stand in that phase of the neighborhood.
There also are plans to construct a town
center containing more than 700,000
square feet of retail, civic and commercial
space.
When the entire project is done, the
1,800-acre New River development will in-
clude more than 4,800 residential units,
with a mix of single-family and multi-family
housing, as well as a town center.
The development plan includes more
than 600 acres of natural preservation, walk-
ing and biking paths and man-made lakes,
according to a company news release.
A community development district as-
sesses taxes on property owners to pay for
common infrastructure expenses such as
roads and utilities.


There are 450 homes in the first phase but only four in the second phase (pictured) of New
River Township. Developers say activity will soon resume at the Wesley Chapel neighbor-
hood (File photo)

TOYS, from page 1
ty to assist our children in need," Loring said.
"What could be a higher calling? I firmly
believe that we need to mobilize the com-
munity around supporting our at-risk
children. I still firmly believe in the
American dream and I want all our kids to
at least have a shot at it. We can do this, and
in my view we must try."
Anna Fulk, coordinator for the Wesley
Chapel distribution site, is hoping people
will donate to their local chapters.
"A lot of people donate at their work in
Tampa, but if you give to the post office
drive in Wesley Chapel, those toys stay in
Wesley Chapel," Fulk said."The same thing
goes for Land O' Lakes, Zephyrhills and the
others.You might be helping your neighbor
who is down on their luck this year."
Fulk said they usually run out of toys for
teenagers and supplies for infants first and
asks people to focus on those items.
In Hillsborough, registered families can
pick up their toys until Dec. 17 at 22 differ-
ent locations. For information on registering
or to donate, call (813) 805-7020 or visit
tampa-fl.toysfortots.org.
Pasco has five distribution sites east of
US 41, including Land O' Lakes, Wesley
Chapel, Zephyrhills, Dade City and
Lacoochee.Al toys will be distributed Dec.
17. Loring works directly with the public


schools to identify the most needy children
and registers them.
For the children not in public schools,
Loring works through Premier Community
Health Care,which handles Pasco Medicaid
families.
"I am confident that we are assisting the
most needy children and families," Loring
said. "These counselors personally know
the families and the children. I like our
method very much and have great confi-
dence in this dandy partnership."
To find the nearest toy drop-off location
in Pasco or for more information, visit
www.toysfortotspasco.org.
Along with the toys, Loring has worked
to make a program called Food For Tots,
which gives food and other needed items
to the children along with toys. He does it
with the different name because the
Marines have a very specific goal for their
program and cannot divert from it.
"It's just like shopping without a
cashier," Loring said of how the distribution
works in Pasco."At some of the stations, par-
ents also get to take socks and toothbrushes
for the kids. We also give out food to the
parents.They get frozen chickens with all
the fixings for a Christmas dinner."
To make any donations to the Food For
Tots, e-mail Loring at redbobbin@tam-
pabayrr.com.


SON, from page 1
On his way back to spend the night
camping with his family, in a tradition James
had known his entire life, the 21-year-old
lost control of his 2007 Ford Charger. He
crashed into some trees and flipped, just
minutes from his family.
Emergency personnel had to cut open
the vehicle to free James from the wreckage.
The University of Central Florida student
was taken to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills,
where he was pronounced dead.
It sent the family's world reeling and
they've been trying to regain their footing
ever since.
"Burying your child is unreal," Linda said."It's
like an out-of-body experience. Completely.
Completely," she said."You need help.'
She and her husband, Tim, got some
help, but they - along with Samantha and
Houston - still struggle with James' death.
"I still don't function right.There are still
some days that I can't get out of bed," Linda
said.
She knows there are others who have
experienced the same kind of loss and pain.
That's why she decided to try to organ-
ize a candlelight vigil on Dec. 12 at the Lutz
Little League, in an event that coincides
withWorldwide Candle LightingAround the
Globe.The Lutz event begins at 6 p.m.,with
the candle lighting at 7 p.m.
"It's worldwide and in every different
time zone," Linda said. "For one hour you
light a candle, so for 24 hours there will be a
candle lit for every child who has died."
Everyone is welcome to the vigil.Those
sharing the event don't have to be grieving
the loss of their own child - they can be
supporting someone else whose child has
died. And it doesn't matter how old the
child was when he or she died, or when the
death occurred, Linda said.
Time passes, but the grieving continues.
James' accident was a nightmare, said his
grandmother,June Cannon."We try to guess
and mostly we think it was a deer," she said,
speculating that he may have swerved to
miss hitting one."We don't know though."


They do know that alcohol did not play a
role, Linda said, because an autopsy was per-
formed.
The force of the accident caused massive
internal injuries, June said."It crushed his
heart."
James was the kind of guy who was al-
ways going out of his way to help others,
Linda said.
He loved his sister and brother, she
added.
He cared so much about Samantha that
he would drive in from Orlando to watch
her do a three-minute cheerleading routine.
And, if James heard Houston was having a
problem with his Xbox, he'd drive to Land
O' Lakes to fix it.
He was well-loved, Linda said. More than
500 people turned out for his visitation.
Tim said he still misses James so much
that he periodically sends him text messages.
When James died, a lot of people didn't
know what to do, the couple said.
But some friends from the Lutz
Leaguerettes knew just the thing.
They built a sanctuary in the family's
backyard, with brick pavers, chairs, mature
palm trees and a fire pit - right in the spot
where James had dug his original fire pit.
"James loved fires," his grandmother said.
The friends who built the backyard oasis
had these words etched onto one of the
bricks:"James David,loving son & brother,
your flame will forever burn in our hearts."
A candlelight vigil,in memory of James,
and others like him, seems fitting.

What:Worldwide Candle Lighting vigil
in remembrance of children who have
passed away
Where: Lutz Little League, 770 Lutz-
Lake Fern Rd.
When: Sunday, Dec. 12 - 6 p.m. event
begins; 7 p.m. candle lighting

SHELTER, from page 1
it's just natural for the church to want to do
this.That's just our passion and motivation
behind this."
Last winter, the project opened as a cold
weather shelter for homeless people.
Gilbertson said he wanted to continue the
project as a homeless shelter after the win-
ter.At first his idea was to start a tent city in
the back of the church because he felt that
was better than having them do the same in
the woods.Then the church agreed to let
them use its building at night.
"We opened as a shelter July 25,"
Gilbertson said."We've had 46 different peo-
ple or families stay with us and have 15-22
people on any night.We've had 10 single
moms stay with us.... They can stay for 14
days and then we ask for a donation of $1 a
day, but we don't turn people away if they
don't have it. Also people use their food
stamps to bring food back to the shelter and
we count that toward the $1."
One person who has been at the shelter
since it opened is Mike Potter, who has lived
in Zephyrhills for 13 years. He has become a
volunteer while living there, supervising the
area while the other residents sleep.
"All the people who help here, especially
Eric, are extremely helpful," Potter, 41, said.
"I've never seen someone work as hard as
Eric does for the people here. He basically
works 24/7 and doesn't get enough credit
for what he does.This place has given me
and many others hope."
When Gilbertson started volunteering
with the shelter he was only going to do-
nate about three hours a week, but was at
the shelter six to eight hours a day.
Another resident volunteer is Stoney
Robertson, who came to the shelter the
week it opened. Before that he was living in
a tent in the woods.
"I think a lot of people are very nervous
about coming to a place like this,"
Robertson, 46, said."People need to be want-
ed and respected. Here they don't make you
feel like a second-class citizen just because


you don't have a home. Really this is the
Ritz-Carlton of shelters."
Both Potter and Robertson attend the
church's services. Gilbertson said while they
try to steer the residents toward God, they
do not make it a requirement.
The shelter opens each night from 5:30
p.m.-8:30 a.m. Once people check in, they
cannot leave and return to prevent people
from coming back intoxicated, Gilbertson
said.Those at the shelter get a dinner and
breakfast plus snacks and drinks available all
night.There is also a TV with movies, games
and books.
There is a separate room for women and
men. Children can stay with either parent
and married couples can stay together in a
common room.
"Before we let someone stay we do a
simple background check to make sure they
don't have any outstanding warrants or any-
thing like that," Gilbertson said. "For the
volunteers it's a more thorough background
check."
The project is currently looking for a lo-
cation closer to downtown Zephyrhills.
Mitchell thinks a central location could help
more people in the future. For now, those
who stay the night are driven to Alice Hall
Community Center at Zephyr Park the next
day by volunteer Brian Lavender.
"We want them to find a job during the
day," Gilbertson said."We have a computer
that I'm getting firewalled so they can look
for a job. ... To me we're like the center
place where people can come for help.We
give them a roof, food, support and then
find them help from other places."
Mitchell said the food costs about $500 a
month. Add the costs of electricity and
water and the total to keep the shelter
going at its current level will be $8,000-
$10,000 a year. However, the project is
expanding its services.
Gilbertson said they will soon open a
new kitchen to make a larger variety of food
faster for the residents.They also recently in-
stalled two showers. He added that when


From left are volunteer Stoney Robertson, volunteer Brain Lavender, Samaritan Project
coordinator Eric Gilbertson and volunteer Mike Potter.


the cold weather returns they will be able
to house about 200 people with the space
the project has.
Gilbertson said donations of supplies and
money are helpful for the cause, but the
biggest need is for volunteers. He said he
does not need anyone to stay overnight, just
mainly to help serve dinner and cleanup
after. Anyone interested should call
Gilbertson at (813) 810-8670. Donations can
also be dropped off at the church office
around the back of the main building.


While Potter and Robertson are still
down on their luck, they are seeing the light
at the end of the tunnel.
"My goal is to get my own place," Potter
said. "I'm looking for a job, but the tough
part is I don't have a car.While I'm still look-
ing, I'm feeling better about my chances."
Robertson said of his goals,"I want to be
accountable. I just want to pay this kindness
forward to someone else who is down on
their luck once I get a job and a place to
live."

Zephyrhills boys reload with new/old coach


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Zephyrhills High boys basketball
program won two state titles in 1962 and
1964 and first-year coach Dustin Rowe is
looking to bring back those glory days.
Rowe was a Zephyrhills assistant for
three years under 13-year coachAlan Reed
before being named the Bulldogs leader in
April.
"Coach Reed did a great job setting the
standard here," Rowe said."He set the defini-
tion for what all our Zephyrhills programs
should be. I hope to keep the momentum
he started."
Before coming to east Pasco County,
Rowe was a boys and girls assistant in
Montana and helped guide the girls team to
a pair of state championships.
Last season the team reached the Class
4A, District 8 semifinals,losing in overtime
to Lecanto High. If they had advanced to the

final they would have earned a regional
tournament birth. The Bulldogs lost four
starters to graduation, but those who remain
are using that heartbreaking loss as fuel for
this season.
"That just makes me want to play hard-
er," said senior forwardWesley Novak."We
know we lost some players, but I think we
have a chance to make another run in dis-
tricts and reach the finals this year."
The team's only returning starter is sen-
ior point guard Devin McLeod. He played
mostly shooting guard last year, but has
switched for the good of the team.
"I like the new position, but it's not as
natural for me," McLeod said."It's a role that
I'm still learning and I'll do everything I can
to get it down.
"Last year I was more of a role player and


I know I'll need to step up more in scoring
after losing our leading scorer Kyle
(Farrell)," McLeod said."We'll need to play
strong team defense and yeah, I'll make sure
everyone is doing things the right way."
Rowe said the only other kids returning
who played significant minutes are Anson
Angail andAkhil Mani.After that, the players
are either new to the program or moving up
from junior varsity.
"We're not a young team, but we're an in-
experienced team," Rowe said. "We're
playing for February, not November, and we
need to make sure we get better on Tuesday
than we were on Monday and better on
Wednesday than we were on Tuesday. If we
do that each day, I think we can be one of
those teams that may not have the best
overall record, but who no one wants to


Lady Bulldogs learn from tough 2009-10


Jerry Stacy enters his 10th season as the
Zephyrhills girls basketball coach and is
hoping some struggles from last year will
serve the team now.
The team finished 2-19 last year, accord-
ing to Stacy, and was bitten by the injury
bug early and often. The Bulldogs lost
Jennifer Patria, their leading scorer from
the year before, to anACL injury and sever-
al others went down as well. That forced
Stacy to use younger players in the lineup,
giving them experience for this year.


"We're just settling in right now," Stacy
said."A lot of our players play other sports
and haven't been able to be at all the work-
outs. Now they're focusing on basketball."
Patria, a senior, has recovered from the knee
injury and is the point guard for the squad.
Stacy said she's the most complete player on
the team and is usually one of the leaders in re-
bounds, assists and steals each night.
Senior guard LindsayWarner and junior
guard Maya Clark are also be key members
to the Bulldogs system.


Senior point guard Devin McLeod is the only
returning starter for the Zephyrhills boys.

match up against in districts."
The team finished 14-11 last year and is
in the midst of an 11-year district title
drought. The Bulldogs last won a district
crown 1998, which is also the year they last
won their conference.
"For us to get any kind of banners on the
wall, we're going to need to discover some
of our talents as we go along," Rowe said.
"We don't have the tallest team. Our tallest
guy is 6-foot-2, so we'll be playing a lot of
half-court stuff and zone defense to help out
and we'll need to pressure the perimeter so
teams with size can't get easy passes into
the paint."
The Bulldogs season got underway at
Wesley Chapel High Nov.23 with a 60-50 loss.
Their district season kicks off against Nature
Coast High at home Dec. 2 at 7:30 p.m.

"What we run changes each year with
the strengths of the team,' Stacy said."This
year we don't have a lot of height, so we're
going to use a lot of four-guard sets and a
perimeter offense.
"We need to establish some consistency
on both sides of the ball," Stacy continued.
"Once we do that we can build from there
and play as a team. We know our limita-
tions and we need to play within ourselves
to have a successful year."
The squad has started 1-2, defeating
Hudson High in their opening. The
Bulldogs open their district schedule Dec.
30 at Sunlake High.

Pirates run over by Jefferson's ground game -


Pasco County's playoff

dreams end

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

In the battle of the unbeatens,Jefferson
High came out on top over Pasco High 41-
14 in the Class 3, Region 2 semifinals Nov.
26 in Tampa.


The Pirates (11-1) entered the contest av-
eraging more than 43 points per game, but
were limited to just two touchdowns both
coming in the fourth quarter. Despite the
27-point loss, Pasco coach Tom McHugh
wants the players to understand how diffi-
cult it is to reach the second round of the
playoffs.
"Over the weekend, (the players are)
going to hear a lot of garbage from people,"
McHugh said. l;llr thcrc were 16 teams play-
ing tonight and we were one of
them. We just happened to draw
(Jefferson)."
On that Dragons (12-0) team is
senior quarterback Quentin Williams,
who set the state record for career
passing touchdowns with his first
score to RamikWilson in the second
quarter.The 40-yard strike gave him
101 in high school, besting Will
Indianos' mark set in 2008 at
Gainesville's Oak Hall High.Williams
added another passing score later in
the game.
Despite having a record-setting
passing attack,Jefferson's game plan

was to keep the ball on the ground.Williams
attempted just 18 passes, completing 10 for
139 yards.
"They have some of the best (defensive
backs) I've played against," Williams said.
"They rush the passer with their D-line, so
we knew if we kept running the ball we'd
break a couple."
The Dragons racked up 251 rushing
yards and three rushing scores.
"We're not as pass-heavy as people
think," said Jefferson coach Mike Fenton."It
may appear like that, and that's kind of a
good thing. I hope they keep thinking that."
Pasco's high-powered spread offense was
kept in check, gaining 244 yards but cashing
in with just two touchdowns. Both scores
came by the pass.Junior quarterback Jacob
Guy connected with senior wide receiver
Hakeeme Ishmar for a 44-yard touchdown
and later found junior wide receiver Trey
Dudley-Giles for a nine-yard score.
Guy entered the second playoff game of
his career with 25 touchdowns to eight in-
terceptions, but the Dragons picked him off
three times.
"Sometimes you have to face the giant,"
McHugh said."These guys are proud.They
don't like to get beat like that. I think you're
going to see seven or eight of their guys
playing on Saturdays. I always like to look at
it like,'I played that kid, I played that kid.'
When that happens all on the same team,

it's bad for you."
Pasco's elimination ends any state cham-
pionship hope for the county's 13 public
schools.
The Pirates did win their fourth straight
district championship this year, all with
McHugh as the coach. Pasco will lose 21
seniors this offseason, but will likely return
key players like Guy, Dudley-Giles, running
backs David Emmanuel and Janarion Grant
and defensive lineman CornellWilson.

Jonathon Bermudez helps teammate go extra mile


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Last spring, Sickles High student
Jonathon Bermudez was running with a
new track teammate,Abdin Fator, when he
noticed the freshman had large holes in his
shoes.What he did next helped earn him a
nomination.
Bermudez took Fator to a local sporting
goods store and bought him new running
shoes with his birthday money.
"I had just turned 17 and had some
money from that," said Bermudez, a senior.
"I've always valued personal enjoyment
over money, so it wasn't a big deal. I didn't
even think about it much because I knew it
was the right thing. People save money all
their life and then can't spend it."
Fator, 16 and a sophomore, is a young
man of few words, but said he was very
grateful for what Bermudez did for him.
"It's nice to have shoes without holes,"
Fator said. He then added,"I didn't know a
lot of the other runners and over the season
we kind of developed that running bond. I
started just running track and he kept bug-
ging me to join cross country. I said I'd give

it a try, but my old shoes wouldn't last run-
ning a 5K (five kilometers), so he took me
to get the shoes."
Fator was born in the war-torn Sudan
and moved to the United States in 2003.
Before coming here, his father moved to
Egypt to raise money to move them to this
country.
Bermudez continued to help Fator dur-
ing the summer. He would drive his younger
teammate to cross country practice because
he did not have a ride.Then when Fator had
no way to get to his physical required to run
for the Gryphons, Bermudez stepped in and
again chauffeured him.
"He took Abdin under his wing like he
was his little brother," said Sickles boys cross
country coach Gail Bottone,who nominat-
ed Bermudez for the award."NowAbdin is
one of the top-three runners on the team up
there with Jonathon. It's amazing because
Abdin might get a scholarship to go to col-
lege because Jonathon helped him."
Bottone, the Sickles guidance depart-
ment head, said Jonathon's actions have
helped renew her faith in teenagers.
"I got goosebumps when I first heard
about what he did," Bottone said."I couldn't
believe a teenager could be so selfless. He
didn't do it for the notoriety.When he first
heard about it he said he didn't know be-
cause of the attention. He just did it because
he knew it was the right thing."
Fator has continued to be surprised by
Bermudez's generosity.
"I keep thinking why would someone do
so much for me," Fator said.


"I don't really think I did anything spe-
cial," Bermudez said."I saw a teammate that
needed some help and I gave it to him. I just
hope other kids who hear about this will do
the same thing the next time they see some-
one who needs some help."

Colton Shepard's actions
save family
It was a good thing Colton Shepard de-
cided to wear is brother's combat boots
June 16 because without them, he might
not have been able to rescue a mother and
child from a burning car.
The Gaither High senior was walking
home from a friend's house when he saw
the aftermath of a car accident near the in-
tersection of Dale Mabry and North
Lakeview Drive, just south of Lutz. Despite
the vehicle being on fire and the real possi-
bility of it exploding, Colton jumped into
action.
"I ran across the road and kicked
through the windshield,which was already
cracked," Colton said. "Then I took off my
shirt and used it to clear the glass from the
opening so I could get the mother and kid
out without hurting them or hurting my-
self."
Colton, 17, does not know the people he
saved. He believes the child to be 5 or 6-
years-old.
"They didn't
really say any-
thing to me -
because I think
they were in
shock," Colton
said.
Colton stayed
with the family
until paramedics
arrived.When he
saw they were
being treated by
rescuers, he left
instead of staying
for potential ado-
ration.
"I knew they
were OK so I just Colton Shepard at a
walked home," JROTC competition.
Colton said. He (Photo courtesy of Katy

KIDS ARE HEROES
St. Joseph's Children's Hospital received
91 nominations for this year's Kids are
Heroes campaign. Of those selected, a
few are from northwestern Hillsborough
County, including Jonathon Bermudez
and Colton Shepard. Since 1996, the
program has honored more than 1,000
kids ages 5-18 from across Tampa Bay.
Winners will be announced this
December.


ingly, "I still had to get home and I didn't
think they'd be able to take me home on
the way to the hospital."
When he got to his house, Colton told
his mother Kathy what happened.
"I can't tell you my exact words, I was
very surprised," Kathy said."We went to the
fire station and they told me the same thing
he said'"
Colton attributes his quick actions to
what he has learned in Gaither's JROTC pro-
gram. Besides acting fast, he told others on
the scene not to throw water on the fire be-
cause of all the gas and oil.
"That also comes from working at
McDonald's," Colton said. "A fire like that,
water just spreads it around."
Kathy sent a letter to Colton's JROTC in-
structors, Senior Chief Edward Donohue
and Capt. Sreten Zivovic, along with Gaither
principal Marie Whelan.The letter thanked
them for helping teach Colton to do the
right thing and also to tell them what he
had done.After learning about what he did,
his instructors nominated Colton.
Colton said he wants to join the military
after graduating. His older brother, James,
served four years in the Middle East, follow-
ing in the footsteps of Kathy (20 years in the
armed forces) and Colton's grandfather,
James, who served four years.
Colton is currently the commanding offi-
cer of Gaither's JROTC athletic team and
also the executive officer of the academic
team.
"JROTC is all about working as a team,"
Colton said."When I saw that car on fire I
felt like that was a member of my team in
trouble. I just acted the way I've been
taught."

On Q offers barbeque and more in St. Leo


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

A wrap-around porch and the sweet
smell of barbecue smoke invite passersby on
SR 52 to take a brief detour and grab a bite
to eat at On Q Smokehouse Grill.
Linda Bailey, who lives between St. Leo
and Dade City, has been enjoying the foods
prepared byWillie Flott ever since he set up
his mobile business on the vacant lot next to
the wood-frame house in St. Leo about a year
ago.
Flott set up the temporary shop to get to
know the community and to find out
whether there was a demand for the kind of
food he serves, which is primarily, but not
exclusively, barbecue.
When Flott found the community was re-
ceptive to his offerings,he decided to rent
the house at 33030 SR 52 and do some reno-
vations to get it ready for his business.
Bailey is glad Flott decided to settle in.
"I was one of his first customers," Bailey


said. She enjoys his barbecue chicken, his
greens, his catfish and pork tenderloin - but
she's simply wild about his fried green toma-
toes.
"I really haven't had them like this since
my mom made them for me when I was a
girl," Bailey said."That was a long time ago."
Paul Brenot and Marcia Stone shared a
meal there recently, when one of the spe-
cials that day was a Fried GreenTomato BLT.
Stone said she enjoyed the fried green
tomatoes and found the bacon to be smoky
and meaty. Brenot reveled in the restaurant's
atmosphere.
"I love sitting outside here," he said."The
weather we're having right now is exquisite."
Flott said he built the porch on the restau-
rant and reconfigured some spaces inside
before he moved his business into the house.
"I personally thought the porch was my
biggest selling point," Flott said. He thinks it
creates a welcoming ambience and lures pa-
trons - especially when the building is lit
after dark.


Flott said he prepares his barbecue by
rubbing a mixture of spices onto the meats
and cooking them over charcoal on custom-
built championship smokers.
"We don't put
any sauces on any-
thing.We want the
customer to taste
the flavor of the
meat," he said.
Customers can
choose from a vari-
ety of sauces,
including one con-
cocted by Flott.
The sauce, which
has a mustard base,
is also available by
the bottle.
The menu in-
cludes sandwiches On Q Smokehouse G
and burgers, salads, ful wood-frame house
appetizers, platters, (Photo by B.C. Manic
kids' meals, beer,
wine, coffee, tea
and soda.
Besides fried green tomatoes, appetizers
include asparagus fries, corn nuggets, fried
pickles, fried mushrooms and chicken
wings.

The restaurant also sells bulk items and
offers catering.
Flott said he can handle parties of any
size and has catered funerals, church picnics
and other gather-
ings.
The name of
the restaurant is a
play on the
phrase, "on cue,"
which is how
Flott wants to
serve up his food
-- prepared
properly and
served right on
time to satisfy his
customers.
The restaurant
is open seven
ll is located in a color- days a week, from
on the edge of St. Leo. 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.,
Monday through
Thursday and
from 8 a.m. until
10 p.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

Toys for Tots spreads holiday cheerBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comEach year,Toys for Tots allows thousands of needy children in Pasco and Hillsborough counties to have that moment of excitement while opening presents Christmas morning. The need for the program has become even greater in recent years and East Pasco Toys for Tots coordinator Bob Loring did not want to run out of gifts like the program did in 2002. "That year at the Dade City distribution we ran out of toys early,"Loring said."It broke my heart that we could not assist many of our folks.I still have that nightmare from time to time. "We expect more requests for assistance than ever before and I'm hoping everyone will give something to help a child have a Christmas,"Loring continued."The reasons are self evident.Bad economy,forecloses and layoffs are rampant throughout our fair community."The East Pasco chapter covers the entire county east of US 41.Loring is expecting 4,500 children to be registered for help this year.The story is similar in Hillsborough,where Sgt.Anton Spivey will not be surprised if record numbers turn out for help. "The need is just so great right now," said Spivey,Toys for Tots volunteer with the Tampa chapter."You hear from hundreds of parents each day who want to make sure their kids have something special on Christmas."Both volunteers are or were involved with the Marines,which started the program in 1947. "I'm honored to have this opportuniHow to helpToys for Tots will hold mailbox toy drives on Saturday,Dec.4 to help collect enough gifts for the thousands of children.It is the largest drive for the program each year.To donate to the cause,place new,unwrapped toys by a home mailbox and the mail carrier will bring it to the nearest chapter.All toys must be new and unwrapped to be accepted.

Samaritan Project offers a roof and directionChurch houses only such facility in east PascoBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comFrom the beginning,Eric Gilbertson wanted to make the Samaritan Project different from other homeless shelters. "This is my passion,"Gilbertson,43, said."I was homeless when I was 15 to 19 years old and saw what it was like at other homeless shelters.I wanted this to be more than just a place to go for a meal. I wanted it to help people find a way to get back on their feet." The project started in 2008 and was run out of the Zephyrhills Chamber of Commerce,but a space conflict forced a move.Tim Mitchell,senior pastor at Chancey Road Christian Church located at 34921 Chancey Road in Zephyrhills, brought it to the church. "We see this as what we're just supposed to do as Christians,"Mitchell said. "The Bible tells us when we offer cool water,shelter,clothing or food in the name of Jesus we are doing his work.SoPirates quarterback Jacob Guy.Mother organizes local version of global vigil to honor children who have diedBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comIn the photograph,James David Birk and his sister,Samantha Adamo,lean toward their younger brother,Houston Adamo. They're all smiling broadly. It's the kind of photograph families often snap at the holidays.This one was taken at the Hillsborough River State Park on Thanksgiving one year ago.It was one of the first times in years that Linda Adamo had bothered to bring a camera to take pictures at the annual gathering, a tradition begun by earlier generations of her family going back more than 50 years. Roughly 60 relatives and friends were there.They'd had a tremendous day,stuffing themselves with turkey and side dishes, playing games,laughing,chatting and checking out advertisements for the next day's sales. "We just had a really nice time,"Linda said. James left for awhile,to watch a football game with a friend. That's when the bright,cheerful Happy Thanksgiving goes dark.Family will keep light shining for lost son Samantha Adamo (left to right) and Houston Adamo pose with their brother, David James Birk, at a family gathering a year ago on Thanksgiving.See SON,page14 The Black Friday Experience From mammoth malls to quaint mom and pops, area shoppers went hunting for deals during the holiday weekend. The day after Thanksgiving marks Black Friday, a time to work off those mashed potatoes and start stocking up on gifts for the season. We spent the day with bargain hunters from Lutz to Zephyrhills. (Stories and photos by Tammy Struble, tstruble@cnewspubs.com) ÔDefinitely not' again After two-hours of shopping,Nathan Hunter and Jaclyn "Niki"Rice of Dade City left the long checkout line they were in around 2 a.m.at the Zephyrhills Walmart and had the customer service/returns counter check them out instead. Finished,they said they would "definitely not"do the midnight thing again. Stuck behind five carts Black Friday shopper Luis Galarza,pictured with son Brandon,spent the day finding deals around Zephyrhills with his family.One stop Ñ the Bealls Outlet on Allen Road.The outlet store opened its doors at 6 a.m.luring holiday shoppers with huge doorbuster specials,70 percent off clearance prices,50 percent off Christmas for the home,and 15 percent off everything storewide on their Friday Club for everyone (Black Friday only). On his first trip,Galarza explained he,"Had to park way in the back in the parking lot. Then,got behind a lady in checkout line with five shopping carts!"However,he was happy that he had found a great deal at Bealls Outlet on a PlayStation 3 and Guitar Hero game. His family did not enjoy their Walmart experience stating they would,"Never do Walmart again for Black Friday." Talked into going by daughter Hazel Carmona was shopping in Dade City at Williams Fashion Center on Seventh Street,which also houses Lunch On Limoges."I don't go out on Black Friday,"explained Carmona,"I usually pretty much stay in!"Yet,her daughter talked her into going to Dade City Ñ they figured it would be less chaotic. They were happy with their choice.Phil Williams,owner / operator of the store and restaurant,stated that the, "Lunch side was a little busier than normal."And,saw an increase in the number served compared to Black Friday last year.He was hoping that the Small Business Saturday campaign will help his clothing and dry goods business É and help other local small businesses.The small business campaign,started by American Express, follows Black Friday in effort to send customers to the smaller retailers.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 2 By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe patrons file in and find their seats. The lights dim.The show begins at the Pasco County Schools Center for the Arts at Wesley Chapel. On any given day the performance could feature a magician,a saxophone player,ballet dancers or singers. But these aren't just any entertainers. The magician,Bradley Fields,has appeared on international stages and uses magic feats to promote mathematics skills and problem-solving in his showed called "MatheMagic." The saxophone player,Eric Darius,is Blue Note jazz musician who did a clinic to help aspiring young musicians,in an addition to doing two performances. The ballet dancers from DanzAmerica's Project Inc.,presented Tchaikovsky's classic fairy-tale ballet,"The Nutcracker"and will do an encore this year.The performances feature dancers from America's Ballet in New Tampa.Performances are scheduled for Dec. 9-10 for Pasco County students and on Dec. 10-11 for the general public. Numerous student performances occur on the center's stage,including a recent music concert by a group of 220 kindergarten through fifth-graders from Connerton Elementary,under the direction of music teachers Kristen Hillstrom and Barbara Falkingham. Those children are among students from 43 elementary,middle and high schools from Land O'Lakes east to Zephyrhills,who take advantage of the professional theater located on the campus of Wesley Chapel High School,30651 Wells Road. The center,which celebrates its 10th year this year,offers incredible educational opportunities for students,said Patrick L. McDermott,the center's director. The recent visit by Eric Darius offers a prime example of the benefit that students derive from the performing arts center, McDermott said. Not only did Darius wow the crowds with his performances,he also did a clinic with aspiring musicians from Charles S. Rushe Middle School,Wesley Chapel High School,Sunlake High School and Pine View Middle School. "Eric Darius is an amazing musician and a fantastic showman,"McDermott noted in an e-mail following the musician's two shows."Both the matinee student audience and the evening public audience were blown away by this fantastic concert." McDermott also raves about Fields,the performer who teaches mathematics through magic. Fields,who is set to appear at the center again on Jan.27,applauds Pasco County Schools for giving students the opportunity to learn through the arts. Schools make a mistake if they focus only on preparing students to take tests,at the expense of the arts,said Fields,who,in addition to being a magician is also a former New York City school teacher."What makes a difference is real,live performances,"Fields said."Nobody knows where a kid is coming from,or where they are going,"he said,noting his show is intended to inspire kids and provoke them to think."I might have a 1,000 in a crowd,"Fields said."Maybe one or two will have their lives completely turned around." The Pasco County Schools Center for the Arts offers an excellent venue for shows both large and small,McDermott said.It can handle virtually any show Ð but can't afford to offer the more expensive Broadway shows because it would take too many performances to cover the costs. Working out the schedule for the 927seat theater is like putting together a jigsaw puzzle,he said.Last year,the center had 260 productions. Every year,McDermott books between 12-15 professional groups to perform for students,the general public,or both.The shows come from places like Toronto, London,Dallas,California,New York,Omaha and other places. "I think this is one of the jewels of the Pasco County school district,"McDermott said. The theater is well equipped.It has a 48by-35-foot stage,a 48-channel sound board,a large dressing room and two smaller dressing rooms for the production's principal players.It has tall doors on the side of the building to enable large sets to be moved in and out. Unlike most stages,which drop straight down,this one has steps leading down into the theater.That allows actors to walk out into the audience and enables singers to use the stairs as risers. The stage is also used for special events, McDermott said,noting music teachers from Wesley Chapel,Seven Oaks and Watergrass elementary schools put on a Broadway Spectacular each year to raise money for the schools. "Their level of musicianship is amazing," said McDermott,who has a master's in music composition and used to play trumpet in orchestras for Broadway musicals. Besides providing performances for students at a nominal charge,the center also hosts public performances at much lower prices than many other professional theaters,McDermott said.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 3 By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comChoosing a Christmas tree is pretty simple,right? Well,that depends. Do you want a Frasier fir or a Douglas fir? A blue spruce or a Scotch pine.Maybe you're in the market for a white pine. So,what's the difference? Matt Marsh,who works at a tree lot on SR 54,just west of Collier Parkway in Land O'Lakes,said "the best-selling tree"on his lot is a Frasier fir.People tend to like the shape of the tree and they have nice branches upon which to hang ornaments, he said. Douglas firs are bushier and have a nice fragrance,he said. Blue spruces have a nice shape,but sharp needles. And Scotch pines are quite durable,but have very little scent,Marsh said. In the end,it's generally boils down to customer preference and the space they need to fill,Marsh said. "Some people want a real skinny tree,"Marsh said,while others prefer plump trees. Super large trees typically find a home at a church or hotel or other place that needs to fill a big space,he said. Prices can vary,too. At his lot,the Scotch pines sell in the $30 range,while the other trees generally go for about $10 a foot.However,Marsh noted,prices are negotiable. Christmas tree lots were just beginning to pop up around northern Hillsborough and Central Pasco last week.No lots were easily visible from the main roads in Zephyrhills,and just one stand was going up on SR 54 near Interstate 75 in Wesley Chapel. A lot had been set up at Gaither High and also at the Seal Swim School on North Dale Mabry Highway in Lutz.Another lot was operating on North Florida Avenue,just north of Bearss Avenue. Sales for fresh trees usually peak around Thanksgiving and continue at a good clip for the next couple of weeks, Marsh said. The trees at the lot where Marsh works are trucked in from Michigan and new shipments will come throughout the season to replenish the supply. When the trees arrive,they often still have snow on their branches,Marsh said. "Some have birds'nests in them." Matt Marsh stands near some of the taller trees at the lot where he works on SR 54 near Collier Parkway in Land O'Lakes. The larger trees usually are purchased by churches, hotels and other places with large spaces, he said. (Photos by B.C. Manion) Alook at a tree lot before the rush begins to find that perfect tree.Like snowflakes, no two trees are alike Tips for choosing a fresh Christmas treeThe rush is on to find that perfect Christmas tree Ð a time-old tradition for many families,churches and businesses.If you're in the market for a fresh tree, these tips from the National Christmas Tree Association may come in handy: • Be sure you know what size (height and width) you need before heading to the retail lot.• If you want to learn about the species of trees that are popular in your area,browse the National Christmas Tree Association's website,www.realchristmastrees.org before heading to the retail lot.• Go to a retail lot that is well-lit and stores trees in a shaded area. • Ask the retailer when he or she gets his or her trees.Are they delivered at the beginning of the season,or do they come in several shipments throughout the season?• Look for indicators of dryness or deterioration such as excessive needle loss, musty odor,discolored foliage or wrinkled bark.A good rule of thumb:If you're not sure a tree is fresh,choose another one.If none of the trees on the lot look fresh,go shopping elsewhere. Maintenance and safety tips• Get a fresh cut on the trunk of the tree before leaving the tree lot.A fresh cut will help the tree absorb water. • Put your tree in a sturdy stand to keep it from toppling over.Fill the base with water and replenish it frequently. • Use a tree skirt to help make it easier to clean up the needles that drop from the tree. • Use only indoor lights on the tree.To prevent potential fires,check for broken or cracked sockets,frayed or bare wires,or loose connections.If a light string is damaged, don't use it.Avoid overloading extension cords. • Turn off tree lights and decorations when you go to bed or leave the house.Sources:The National Christmas Tree Association,the University of Florida/Institute for Food and Agricultural Sciences and the National Safety Council OPEN 7 DAYS A WEEK 20% BONUSReceive an additional 20% on the sale of your gold.MUST PRESENT COUPON Val Val Val id id id onl onl onl yo yo yo y ng ng ng g old old old je je je j wel wel wel ry ry ry . y No No No tv tv tv ali ali ali dw dw dw ith ith ith ot ot ot her her her of of of fer fer fer so so so rp rp rp p rio rio rio r r r pur pur p h cha cha ses ses N N .

Three state studies focus on Pasco, northern HillsboroughBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comRail systems have come to dominate the conversation for public transportation in recent months,but that is not the only way to increase movement in Pasco and northern Hillsborough counties. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) is currently funding three studies on transportation corridors in conjunction with the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority (TBARTA).The affected roads include: ÑSR 54/56 ÑVeterans Expressway/Suncoast ParkwayÑBruce B.Downs Boulevard The SR 54/56 corridor study began last December and is scheduled to take two years.Elba Lopez,FDOT's public transit/intermodal administrator for the area,said the goal is to decide if the 30 miles between Wesley Chapel and New Port Richey would benefit from managed traffic lanes for express bus travel. "Managed lanes just means lanes devoted to buses and could also be used for carpoolers,"Lopez said."That allows the buses to get through during peak levels of traffic and so they don't slow down traffic either.There isn't a set number of stops or anything like that yet.That corridor was identified as one of the priority one areas by the Regional Transportation Master Plan." Lopez said some of the reasons the area has been designated as priority one is the number of people that travel the corridor and the potential for growth in the coming years. The boundaries for the project are Bruce B.Downs Boulevard,also known as CR 581, to US 19.The study is being done by RS&H at a cost of $500,000. At this point,about 18 alternative plans have been proposed for the corridor.Once the more realistic ones are identified,FDOT will discuss them with the various stakeholders and the public. In another study,the more than 100 miles of the Veterans Expressway/Suncoast Parkway from Tampa to Inverness in Citrus County is also being looked at for an express bus route with managed lanes.That study,which comes in at a price of $530,000,started very recently and is many months from completion,according to Lopez. The last and most expensive study involves Bruce B.Downs from SR 54 in Wesley Chapel south to the University of South Florida,a stretch of about 50 miles.This project has more than just buses as a potential conclusion. "That's looking at bringing possible short-distance rail,"Lopez said."It's just conceptualizing it at this point.It's not like tomorrow we'll be putting down rails or anything like that,but it's looking at the possibility." That rail study is only two months in and comes in at a $1.7 million price tag. Stops along a future rail route are also not set,but stops in the area could include the Grove at Wesley Chapel,The Shops at Wiregrass and University Community Hospital.FDOT spokeswoman Kris Carson said the public will be able to voice their opinions and get more information on the future of these corridors at later public meetings.Information on these three studies or anything else related to the master plan is available on the TBARTA website,www.tbarta.com.The public can give their opinions and concerns there as well.Planners contemplate more connected region813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 4 Correction:Annemarie Schunemann is the German teacher of the year for Florida.Her first name was misspelled in a story published on Nov.24. LETTERS TO THE EDITOR Dear Editor: I was reading the article on how the transit plan was shot down by Hillsborough and to me I think for good reason.Light rail is not the answer,being from New Jersey and all,the money they spent on the light rail there is very under utilized because it is too slow.I think a system like the PATH that goes between New Jersey and New York is more what we need to bring commuters into Tampa and off the roads. Light rail still has a use,but to go from say The Shops at Wiregrass down Bruce B. Downs and into Tampa would take an hour with the stops.Light rail is very good for in city,but it is not good for runs more than 10 miles. Maybe they want it to be different,but the planning board should take a trip to New York City and check out what they did.Not saying everything in the tri-state area works great,but they move a ton of people by train.I think the people are right to shoot down light rail.It is slow and not the best option.It is looked at as the cheapest option to get some kind of mass transit going. The board needs to rethink their plan and think about a real elevated subway style train that is faster and holds more people;going to cost more,but let's do it right the first time.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 5 The Pasco County Development Review Committee unanimously approved the plan for the future Wesley Chapel Medical Center Nov.18. The facility will be the first full-service hospital in Wesley Chapel and is expected to break ground in the coming weeks.It will be built on the east side of Bruce B.Downs Boulevard just north of the intersection of SR 56. "The other commissioners and myself expected it to be approved without any problems,but you never know until it's voted on,"said Pasco commission chairwoman Pat Mulieri.She then added,"It will be important to the healthcare of our citizens and will bring about 400 jobs too." Now the commission will vote to give final approval to the facility,provided no unexpected problems arise. The facility will open with 80 beds and three stories,but is designed to easily add up to six stories as the need develops.It will include obstetrics,pediatrics and general surgery,women's and men's services,orthopedics,sports medicine and other services. The Wesley Chapel hospital was originally planned as a joint venture between the Adventist Health System and University Community Health,but the two merged in September.

This service also allows patients who believe their situation does not require emergency care to access wait times and choose the best point to see a medical professional. "Over the years we have heard from our patients that long wait times in the ER have become a source of frustration," said Marge Keck,PRMC director of emergency services."At Pasco Regional we wanted to be part of the solution.The goal is to make our patients'experience in the ER as streamlined and efficient as possible. "We implemented this important tool because at Pasco Regional,we believe giving patients access to ER waiting times enables them to make better,more informed choices about their personal medical care,"Keck continued. The on-line ER wait time is calculated to approximate the time it takes to see a qualified health care professional and is updated in real time. ER Extra at PRMC has a door-to-discharge time of two hours or less,which places it well above most emergency rooms nationally that average three hours or more.Hospital puts emergency room wait times online Conveniently located by Sam's Club27510 Cashford Circle WESLEY CHAPEL ATTENTION.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 6 Lutz Arts and Crafts Festival looks to reboundBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLutz Arts and Crafts Festival organizers are hoping for nicer weather and a larger turnout after a 2009 event where attendance was less than half its normal total. An estimated 35,000 to 40,000 people attend the two-day event each year,making it the largest Hillsborough County art fair after the Gasparilla Art Festival. However,last year a combination of bad weather on the first day and a new $2 fee per vehicle to enter the park imposed by the Hillsborough Parks,Recreation and Conservation Department brought that number to about 15,000.Edwina Kraemer, president of the GFWC Lutz-Land O'Lakes Women's Club,thinks the number will rebound from last year's low turnout. "It's a fabulous festival with a familyfriendly atmosphere,"said Kraemer."It's a great place to do your Christmas or holiday shopping for everyone on your list.There are people who sell toys and clothes for babies,people who sell local artwork,jewelry and other arts and crafts things.If you need something for someone you'll likely find it there and the great thing is the artists there are the people who made it.They don't buy things and resell them." The event,which is organized by the women's club,is always the first weekend in December, which is Dec.4-5 this year.Admission is free for the festival itself after the $2 to park.That money does not go to anyone involved with the event. The club was not in charge of the event back at the beginning,but has been its organizer for the 31st time this year. "The festival started at the Old Lutz School on (US) 41 and later moved to the train depot across the street," said Lutz resident Shirley Simmons,co-chairwoman for the event."It moved to Lake Park about 10 years ago.We'll have 260 vendors and several spots we give 20 to local groups for free.We're all full for vendors and even have a waiting list in case people drop out." The Lutz Patriots,Relay For Life and the Boy Scouts are some of those who get free spots. Kraemer,who was the Lutz Guv'na in 2006,first learned of the event before becoming a club member. "Friends told me about it," Kraemer said."We went and had a great time.It's kind of hard to live in the area and have not heard about it because of how big it has gotten.It's fast becoming one of the largest in central Florida." Kraemer moved to Lutz from Carrollwood six years ago.She is a retired science teacher who taught at Gaither High during its first year in 1984. Simmons said there will be vendors from Lutz,Land O'Lakes,Odessa,Wesley Chapel,Zephyrhills,Dade City and New Tampa at the event. Land O'Lakes resident April Demulia has gone to the craft show for the last few years and loves everything about it. "I've lived in Michigan, New York and Pennsylvania and this is the only place I've seen a craft show as awesome as this one,"Demulia said."It has anything you can think of and prices are good for anyone.You've got little crafts you can buy for a few cents to expensive pieces of jewelry and artwork.It has something for everyone,including great food." Vendors will be selling traditional and not so traditional festival foods,such as barbecue,kettle corn,funnel cakes, sandwiches,hot dogs,breakfast breads,ice cream and homemade baked goods. Kraemer explained the Lutz festival has three goals:to give the community a fun local event,to give artists a place to display and sell their products and for the club to raise money to give back into the community. "Everything we collect from booth sales will go to great groups in the community," said Kraemer."We give money to Boy and Girl Scout troops,the Civil Air Patrol,to youth scholarships,to the Lutz volunteer fire department,to the Lutz (Branch) Library and others." Lutz Arts and Crafts FestivalWhere: Lake Park When: 10 a.m.-5 p.m.Dec.4,10 a.m.-4 p.m.Dec.5 Parking: $2 Admission: free Jack Beverland of San Antonio was a vendor for the first time at the Lutz Arts and Craft Festival last year. Beverland makes and sells folk art, such as the acrylic paintings seen behind him. (File photos) Gloria Candales of Zephyrhills attended her third Lutz Arts and Craft Festival as a vendor in 2009. She sold various crocheted items, such as doilies, blankets, towels and bottle holders. C.J. Heider, Adam Lare and William Glenn, all of Lutz, were members of the North Tampa-Lutz Civil Air Patrol Cadet Squadron who helped direct parking during the Lutz Arts and Craft Festival last year.

LOST "I feel so different than I did two years ago. My body now craves healthy food instead of sweets and junk food. I've maintained my weight loss for 30 months and it's become pretty easy because I am in control of myself and like the person I've become. I USED to go shopping to look for clothes that would make me look good. But guess what Ð nothing really did. I had to change my body to do that. I am in the BESTshape of my life. Your health affects your moods, emotions, energy. As women, we look after everyone else in our lives before we look after ourselves. But if you don't also take care of yourself, you won't have much left over to give to others. And you won't feel good about yourself physically or emotionally. When I finally called Samantha in March of 2007, it was after reading her articles in the paper for many years. I was in the worst shape of my life physically and it was affecting me on many levels Ð my health, mentally, emotionally and in my relationships. I tried to lose weight MANYtimes but I could never keep the pounds off. I would always go back to my old way of eating and the weight would come back on Ð and more. Calling Samantha was the best decision I've ever made. I needed help to change. Samantha told me if I put time and effort in her plan, it would work. After seven months of following Samatha's program, I had lost 55 lbs and 7 sizes and have kept it off for almost 3 years! Thanks Samantha!"Chris Williams WE CAN HELP YOU!See the website for more inspiring before & after photos.

Kaufman M.D. Cataract Specialist Certified Crystalens Surgeonwww.KaufmanEyeInstitute.comQ.What is Insta-Sight’ Cataract Surgery? -J.A.K. Insta-Sight’ Cataract Surgery is the removal of the cataract without the use of needles (injections around the eye), patches or stitches. Q.Why use Insta-Sight’ Cataract Surgery? -D.L.G. Insta-Sight’ is used because it provides vision instantly after cataract surgery. It is the safest procedure. High risk patients that are taking aspirin or anticoagulants do not stop these medications before surgery so there is less of a chance of aheart attack or stroke. Since there are no injections around the eye, there is no chance of inadvertent misdirected injection into theeye which can cause blindness. Without injections, there is less of a chance of double vision or droopy lids which may be the result of injections. I have been performing Insta-Sight Cataract Surgerysince 1992.A. A. Stuart J.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEY CHAPEL / ZEPHYRHILLS December 01, 2010 10 Now the Lord made a whale, long and wide Lord, Lord waddnat a fish And he swallowed up Jonah, hair and hide Lord, Lord waddnat a fish.–Louis ArmstrongBy Randall GranthamCommunity ColumnistIt was the dead middle of November. The first cold front had come and gone. The weather was typical Tampa perfect. Highs in the upper 70s. No clouds and a light breeze out of the north-northeast. We’d had no significant rain in over a month and a half, so the water conditions and visibility were great. Peter and I set out from Tarpon Springs with a new set of numbers and no curfew. I had seen my buddy Ray Odor earlier in the week to get a new stringer and got to talking to him, telling him where we were going that weekend. The man was in a good mood and, as I was leaving, he looked at me with a grin and said, “Do you want a number?” Having tried and tried to get a few coordinates out of the old master before, without success, I jumped at the offer. “Come on in,” he said as we sat down and he booted up his computer to find us a spot. Heading out towards Pedestal Rock, the barges were on the way so we decided to roll-over on a couple of them before heading out deeper. As I hit the 68 degree water and surface for my spear gun, I tell Peter, “Thank God for wetsuits,” before descending. The first barge I dropped on was pretty well decayed. A few struts and plates and a lot of fish. I watched a few legal-sized grouper swim off and bagged a nice Sheepie and a Hog Snapper before coming up to let Peter take a look. Before I came up, I saw what I thought, at the time, to be a pretty nice sized goliath grouper, or jewfish, as they used to be called. It was about five feet long. After Peter came up, we motored over towards a second barge, but before we got there, a huge mass popped up on the bottom-feeler and, with the water as clear as it was, we could see that we were sitting on something big. It was another, newer barge. From the surface it looked like a tall mound of white rocks or shells. But when we dropped on it, we found that the “shells” were actually millions, or even billions, of shiny threadfins and other baitfish, massing around the barge. I followed Peter in and, as I swam nearly blindly through the masses of baitfish, I kept hearing a “WHOMP” sound. As I ventured into the barge’s midsection in hopes of getting out of the cloud of bait and maybe finding a decent sized fish, I startled one of the biggest goliaths I had ever seen. I say I startled it, but let me tell you, it more than startled me. I found that it, and its brethren, were the source of the “WHOMP” sound. The fish are so big, and they can displace so much water, when they are feeling “territorial,” they pump their swim-bladder and cause a “sonic boom” under water. There were no fewer that 10-12 of those giants on that wreck. The five-foot one we had seen at the other barge must have been a baby that had wandered off from the family picnic, because all of these were at least six feet and up to eight or more feet long. And they were everywhere! Every time we got too close to one, we would hear and feel the “WHOMP,” as they maneuvered out of our path. Peter and I worked the wreck for awhile, taking turns running into the giants at all parts of the structure until we decided to surface. Once on board the boat, our eyes wide with wonder, all we could do was shake our heads in disbelief. Finally Peter put it into words that seemed to do it justice. He said, “That was like Jurassic Park, man!” Indeed. Those creatures seemed like dinosaurs, each one outweighing us by several hundred pounds. This was only the second time I’d dove with fish bigger than me. The first time was at Disney’s Living Seas at Epcot and there I felt safe in the perimeter of an amusement park. This was no amusement park. [Very large goliath grouper have been observed to stalk divers and even conduct unsuccessful ambushes. Large individuals of this species should be treated with caution.] A couple of decades ago, they said jewfish, or GG, were on the brink of extinction. Well, from what I’ve seen, the species has made a great rebound. And, just like alligators, I think they‘ve come back enough to be reminded of who sits at the top of the food chain. Because grouper is grouper. And no matter what you call it, it’s good eats! Now that’s a big fish! COMMENTARYRandall C.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 13 Bond restructuring expected to revitalize New River projectBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comNew River Township,a development on SR 54 in Wesley Chapel which came to a virtual standstill during the housing crisis,is now getting a jumpstart thanks to a deal involving $20 million in community district development bonds. The bond deal took about two years to consummate,according to a news release from the Avalon Park Group,the project's developer. "The bond restructuring took time because it was complicated,"said Eric Marks, senior vice president at Avalon Park Group. That deal,coupled with homebuilder interest,is revitalizing the project,he said. "Now you've got bonds that are appropriately sized for the market,"Marks said. "We have a lot of builder interest,"Marks said,noting talks have been ongoing with local and national homebuilders.He expects to be able to announce the names of homebuilders soon. Marks said he's aware that the housing market remains challenging,but he said the houses will be competitively priced.He's also optimistic that the new activity is beginning at a time when the housing market is beginning to recover. Development of 365 lots and a clubhouse with pool have been completed for the new phase.Only four homes currently stand in that phase of the neighborhood. There also are plans to construct a town center containing more than 700,000 square feet of retail,civic and commercial space. When the entire project is done,the 1,800-acre New River development will include more than 4,800 residential units, with a mix of single-family and multi-family housing,as well as a town center. The development plan includes more than 600 acres of natural preservation,walking and biking paths and man-made lakes, according to a company news release. A community development district assesses taxes on property owners to pay for common infrastructure expenses such as roads and utilities. There are 450 homes in the first phase but only four in the second phase (pictured) of New River Township.

"What could be a higher calling?I firmly believe that we need to mobilize the community around supporting our at-risk children.I still firmly believe in the American dream and I want all our kids to at least have a shot at it.We can do this,and in my view we must try." Anna Fulk,coordinator for the Wesley Chapel distribution site,is hoping people will donate to their local chapters. "A lot of people donate at their work in Tampa,but if you give to the post office drive in Wesley Chapel,those toys stay in Wesley Chapel,"Fulk said."The same thing goes for Land O'Lakes,Zephyrhills and the others.You might be helping your neighbor who is down on their luck this year." Fulk said they usually run out of toys for teenagers and supplies for infants first and asks people to focus on those items.In Hillsborough,registered families can pick up their toys until Dec.17 at 22 different locations.For information on registering or to donate,call (813) 805-7020 or visit tampa-fl.toysfortots.org. Pasco has five distribution sites east of US 41,including Land O'Lakes,Wesley Chapel,Zephyrhills,Dade City and Lacoochee.All toys will be distributed Dec. 17.Loring works directly with the publicTOYS,from page 1On his way back to spend the night camping with his family,in a tradition James had known his entire life,the 21-year-old lost control of his 2007 Ford Charger.He crashed into some trees and flipped,just minutes from his family.Emergency personnel had to cut open the vehicle to free James from the wreckage. The University of Central Florida student was taken to Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, where he was pronounced dead.It sent the family's world reeling and they've been trying to regain their footing ever since."Burying your child is unreal,"Linda said."It's like an out-of-body experience.Completely. Completely,"she said."You need help."She and her husband,Tim,got some help,but they Ñ along with Samantha and Houston Ñ still struggle with James'death. "I still don't function right.There are still some days that I can't get out of bed,"Linda said. She knows there are others who have experienced the same kind of loss and pain. That's why she decided to try to organize a candlelight vigil on Dec.12 at the Lutz Little League,in an event that coincides with Worldwide Candle Lighting Around the Globe.The Lutz event begins at 6 p.m.,with the candle lighting at 7 p.m. "It's worldwide and in every different time zone,"Linda said."For one hour you light a candle,so for 24 hours there will be a candle lit for every child who has died." Everyone is welcome to the vigil.Those sharing the event don't have to be grieving the loss of their own child Ñ they can be supporting someone else whose child has died.And it doesn't matter how old the child was when he or she died,or when the death occurred,Linda said. Time passes,but the grieving continues. James'accident was a nightmare,said his grandmother,June Cannon."We try to guess and mostly we think it was a deer,"she said, speculating that he may have swerved to miss hitting one."We don't know though."SON,from page 1They do know that alcohol did not play a role,Linda said,because an autopsy was performed. The force of the accident caused massive internal injuries,June said."It crushed his heart." James was the kind of guy who was always going out of his way to help others, Linda said. He loved his sister and brother,she added. He cared so much about Samantha that he would drive in from Orlando to watch her do a three-minute cheerleading routine. And,if James heard Houston was having a problem with his Xbox,he'd drive to Land O'Lakes to fix it. He was well-loved,Linda said.More than 500 people turned out for his visitation.Tim said he still misses James so much that he periodically sends him text messages.When James died,a lot of people didn't know what to do,the couple said. But some friends from the Lutz Leaguerettes knew just the thing. They built a sanctuary in the family's backyard,with brick pavers,chairs,mature palm trees and a fire pit Ð right in the spot where James had dug his original fire pit. "James loved fires,"his grandmother said. The friends who built the backyard oasis had these words etched onto one of the bricks:"James David,loving son & brother, your flame will forever burn in our hearts." A candlelight vigil,in memory of James, and others like him,seems fitting.schools to identify the most needy children and registers them. For the children not in public schools, Loring works through Premier Community Health Care,which handles Pasco Medicaid families. "I am confident that we are assisting the most needy children and families,"Loring said."These counselors personally know the families and the children.I like our method very much and have great confidence in this dandy partnership." To find the nearest toy drop-off location in Pasco or for more information,visit www.toysfortotspasco.org. Along with the toys,Loring has worked to make a program called Food For Tots, which gives food and other needed items to the children along with toys.He does it with the different name because the Marines have a very specific goal for their program and cannot divert from it. "It's just like shopping without a cashier,"Loring said of how the distribution works in Pasco."At some of the stations,parents also get to take socks and toothbrushes for the kids.We also give out food to the parents.They get frozen chickens with all the fixings for a Christmas dinner."

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 15 it's just natural for the church to want to do this.That's just our passion and motivation behind this." Last winter,the project opened as a cold weather shelter for homeless people. Gilbertson said he wanted to continue the project as a homeless shelter after the winter.At first his idea was to start a tent city in the back of the church because he felt that was better than having them do the same in the woods.Then the church agreed to let them use its building at night. "We opened as a shelter July 25," Gilbertson said."We've had 46 different people or families stay with us and have 15-22 people on any night.We've had 10 single moms stay with us.É They can stay for 14 days and then we ask for a donation of $1 a day,but we don't turn people away if they don't have it.Also people use their food stamps to bring food back to the shelter and we count that toward the $1." One person who has been at the shelter since it opened is Mike Potter,who has lived in Zephyrhills for 13 years.He has become a volunteer while living there,supervising the area while the other residents sleep. "All the people who help here,especially Eric,are extremely helpful,"Potter,41,said. "I've never seen someone work as hard as Eric does for the people here.He basically works 24/7 and doesn't get enough credit for what he does.This place has given me and many others hope." When Gilbertson started volunteering with the shelter he was only going to donate about three hours a week,but was at the shelter six to eight hours a day. Another resident volunteer is Stoney Robertson,who came to the shelter the week it opened.Before that he was living in a tent in the woods. "I think a lot of people are very nervous about coming to a place like this," Robertson,46,said."People need to be wanted and respected.Here they don't make you feel like a second-class citizen just because you don't have a home.Really this is the Ritz-Carlton of shelters." Both Potter and Robertson attend the church's services.Gilbertson said while they try to steer the residents toward God,they do not make it a requirement. The shelter opens each night from 5:30 p.m.-8:30 a.m.Once people check in,they cannot leave and return to prevent people from coming back intoxicated,Gilbertson said.Those at the shelter get a dinner and breakfast plus snacks and drinks available all night.There is also a TV with movies,games and books. There is a separate room for women and men.Children can stay with either parent and married couples can stay together in a common room. "Before we let someone stay we do a simple background check to make sure they don't have any outstanding warrants or anything like that,"Gilbertson said."For the volunteers it's a more thorough background check." The project is currently looking for a location closer to downtown Zephyrhills. Mitchell thinks a central location could help more people in the future.For now,those who stay the night are driven to Alice Hall Community Center at Zephyr Park the next day by volunteer Brian Lavender. "We want them to find a job during the day,"Gilbertson said."We have a computer that I'm getting firewalled so they can look for a job.É To me we're like the center place where people can come for help.We give them a roof,food,support and then find them help from other places." Mitchell said the food costs about $500 a month.Add the costs of electricity and water and the total to keep the shelter going at its current level will be $8,000$10,000 a year.However,the project is expanding its services. Gilbertson said they will soon open a new kitchen to make a larger variety of food faster for the residents.They also recently installed two showers.He added that when the cold weather returns they will be able to house about 200 people with the space the project has. Gilbertson said donations of supplies and money are helpful for the cause,but the biggest need is for volunteers.He said he does not need anyone to stay overnight,just mainly to help serve dinner and cleanup after.Anyone interested should call Gilbertson at (813) 810-8670.Donations can also be dropped off at the church office around the back of the main building. While Potter and Robertson are still down on their luck,they are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. "My goal is to get my own place,"Potter said."I'm looking for a job,but the tough part is I don't have a car.While I'm still looking,I'm feeling better about my chances." Robertson said of his goals,"I want to be accountable.I just want to pay this kindness forward to someone else who is down on their luck once I get a job and a place to live."

Rowe was a Zephyrhills assistant for three years under 13-year coach Alan Reed before being named the Bulldogs leader in April. "Coach Reed did a great job setting the standard here,"Rowe said."He set the definition for what all our Zephyrhills programs should be.I hope to keep the momentum he started." Before coming to east Pasco County, Rowe was a boys and girls assistant in Montana and helped guide the girls team to a pair of state championships. Last season the team reached the Class 4A,District 8 semifinals,losing in overtime to Lecanto High.If they had advanced to the final they would have earned a regional tournament birth.The Bulldogs lost four starters to graduation,but those who remain are using that heartbreaking loss as fuel for this season. "That just makes me want to play harder,"said senior forward Wesley Novak."We know we lost some players,but I think we have a chance to make another run in districts and reach the finals this year." The team's only returning starter is senior point guard Devin McLeod.He played mostly shooting guard last year,but has switched for the good of the team. "I like the new position,but it's not as natural for me,"McLeod said."It's a role that I'm still learning and I'll do everything I can to get it down. "Last year I was more of a role player and I know I'll need to step up more in scoring after losing our leading scorer Kyle (Farrell),"McLeod said."We'll need to play strong team defense and yeah,I'll make sure everyone is doing things the right way." Rowe said the only other kids returning who played significant minutes are Anson Angail and Akhil Mani.After that,the players are either new to the program or moving up from junior varsity. "We're not a young team,but we're an inexperienced team,"Rowe said."We're playing for February,not November,and we need to make sure we get better on Tuesday than we were on Monday and better on Wednesday than we were on Tuesday.If we do that each day,I think we can be one of those teams that may not have the best overall record,but who no one wants to match up against in districts." The team finished 14-11 last year and is in the midst of an 11-year district title drought.The Bulldogs last won a district crown 1998,which is also the year they last won their conference. "For us to get any kind of banners on the wall,we're going to need to discover some of our talents as we go along,"Rowe said. "We don't have the tallest team.Our tallest guy is 6-foot-2,so we'll be playing a lot of half-court stuff and zone defense to help out and we'll need to pressure the perimeter so teams with size can't get easy passes into the paint."The Bulldogs season got underway at Wesley Chapel High Nov.23 with a 60-50 loss. Their district season kicks off against Nature Coast High at home Dec.2 at 7:30 p.m.Zephyrhills boys reload with new/old coach Check This Out The Central Pasco Bears won the junior flag football division for i9 Sports this year.

Coach Dustin Rowe speaks to his team at the end of practice. (Photos by Glenn Gefers at Photosby3g.com) Jerry Stacy enters his 10th season as the Zephyrhills girls basketball coach and is hoping some struggles from last year will serve the team now. The team finished 2-19 last year,according to Stacy,and was bitten by the injury bug early and often.The Bulldogs lost Jennifer Patria,their leading scorer from the year before,to an ACL injury and several others went down as well.That forced Stacy to use younger players in the lineup, giving them experience for this year. "We're just settling in right now,"Stacy said."A lot of our players play other sports and haven't been able to be at all the workouts.Now they're focusing on basketball."Patria,a senior,has recovered from the knee injury and is the point guard for the squad. Stacy said she's the most complete player on the team and is usually one of the leaders in rebounds,assists and steals each night.Senior guard Lindsay Warner and junior guard Maya Clark are also be key members to the Bulldogs system. "What we run changes each year with the strengths of the team,"Stacy said."This year we don't have a lot of height,so we're going to use a lot of four-guard sets and a perimeter offense. "We need to establish some consistency on both sides of the ball,"Stacy continued. "Once we do that we can build from there and play as a team.We know our limitations and we need to play within ourselves to have a successful year." The squad has started 1-2,defeating Hudson High in their opening.The Bulldogs open their district schedule Dec. 30 at Sunlake High.Lady Bulldogs learn from tough 2009-10

The Wiregrass Ranch Bulls varsity team came in first place in the all girl division Nov. 20. The Pasco varsity squad performs some high-flying moves at the SAC titles Nov. 20.Pasco County's playoff dreams end By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comIn the battle of the unbeatens,Jefferson High came out on top over Pasco High 4114 in the Class 3,Region 2 semifinals Nov. 26 in Tampa. The Pirates (11-1) entered the contest averaging more than 43 points per game,but were limited to just two touchdowns both coming in the fourth quarter.Despite the 27-point loss,Pasco coach Tom McHugh wants the players to understand how difficult it is to reach the second round of the playoffs. "Over the weekend,(the players are) going to hear a lot of garbage from people," McHugh said."But there were 16 teams playing tonight and we were one of them.We just happened to draw (Jefferson)." On that Dragons (12-0) team is senior quarterback Quentin Williams, who set the state record for career passing touchdowns with his first score to Ramik Wilson in the second quarter.The 40-yard strike gave him 101 in high school,besting Will Indianos'mark set in 2008 at Gainesville's Oak Hall High.Williams added another passing score later in the game. Despite having a record-setting passing attack,Jefferson's game plan was to keep the ball on the ground.Williams attempted just 18 passes,completing 10 for 139 yards. "They have some of the best (defensive backs) I've played against,"Williams said. "They rush the passer with their D-line,so we knew if we kept running the ball we'd break a couple." The Dragons racked up 251 rushing yards and three rushing scores. "We're not as pass-heavy as people think,"said Jefferson coach Mike Fenton."It may appear like that,and that's kind of a good thing.I hope they keep thinking that." Pasco's high-powered spread offense was kept in check,gaining 244 yards but cashing in with just two touchdowns.Both scores came by the pass.Junior quarterback Jacob Guy connected with senior wide receiver Hakeeme Ishmar for a 44-yard touchdown and later found junior wide receiver Trey Dudley-Giles for a nine-yard score. Guy entered the second playoff game of his career with 25 touchdowns to eight interceptions,but the Dragons picked him off three times. "Sometimes you have to face the giant," McHugh said."These guys are proud.They don't like to get beat like that.I think you're going to see seven or eight of their guys playing on Saturdays.I always like to look at it like,ÔI played that kid,I played that kid.' When that happens all on the same team, it's bad for you." Pasco's elimination ends any state championship hope for the county's 13 public schools. The Pirates did win their fourth straight district championship this year,all with McHugh as the coach.Pasco will lose 21 seniors this offseason,but will likely return key players like Guy,Dudley-Giles,running backs David Emmanuel and Janarion Grant and defensive lineman Cornell Wilson.Pirates run over by Jefferson's ground game Pasco quarterback Jacob Guy and the Pirates offense was limited to 14 points against Jefferson, all coming in the fourth quarter.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 18 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLast spring,Sickles High student Jonathon Bermudez was running with a new track teammate,Abdin Fator,when he noticed the freshman had large holes in his shoes.What he did next helped earn him a nomination. Bermudez took Fator to a local sporting goods store and bought him new running shoes with his birthday money. "I had just turned 17 and had some money from that,"said Bermudez,a senior. "I've always valued personal enjoyment over money,so it wasn't a big deal.I didn't even think about it much because I knew it was the right thing.People save money all their life and then can't spend it." Fator,16 and a sophomore,is a young man of few words,but said he was very grateful for what Bermudez did for him. "It's nice to have shoes without holes," Fator said.He then added,"I didn't know a lot of the other runners and over the season we kind of developed that running bond.I started just running track and he kept bugging me to join cross country.I said I'd give it a try,but my old shoes wouldn't last running a 5K (five kilometers),so he took me to get the shoes." Fator was born in the war-torn Sudan and moved to the United States in 2003. Before coming here,his father moved to Egypt to raise money to move them to this country. Bermudez continued to help Fator during the summer.He would drive his younger teammate to cross country practice because he did not have a ride.Then when Fator had no way to get to his physical required to run for the Gryphons,Bermudez stepped in and again chauffeured him. "He took Abdin under his wing like he was his little brother,"said Sickles boys cross country coach Gail Bottone,who nominated Bermudez for the award."Now Abdin is one of the top-three runners on the team up there with Jonathon.It's amazing because Abdin might get a scholarship to go to college because Jonathon helped him." Bottone,the Sickles guidance department head,said Jonathon's actions have helped renew her faith in teenagers. "I got goosebumps when I first heard about what he did,"Bottone said."I couldn't believe a teenager could be so selfless.He didn't do it for the notoriety.When he first heard about it he said he didn't know because of the attention.He just did it because he knew it was the right thing." Fator has continued to be surprised by Bermudez's generosity. "I keep thinking why would someone do so much for me,"Fator said. "I don't really think I did anything special,"Bermudez said."I saw a teammate that needed some help and I gave it to him.I just hope other kids who hear about this will do the same thing the next time they see someone who needs some help."Colton Shepard's actions save family It was a good thing Colton Shepard decided to wear is brother's combat boots June 16 because without them,he might not have been able to rescue a mother and child from a burning car. The Gaither High senior was walking home from a friend's house when he saw the aftermath of a car accident near the intersection of Dale Mabry and North Lakeview Drive,just south of Lutz.Despite the vehicle being on fire and the real possibility of it exploding,Colton jumped into action. "I ran across the road and kicked through the windshield,which was already cracked,"Colton said."Then I took off my shirt and used it to clear the glass from the opening so I could get the mother and kid out without hurting them or hurting myself." Colton,17,does not know the people he saved.He believes the child to be 5 or 6years-old."They didn't really say anything to me because I think they were in shock,"Colton said. Colton stayed with the family until paramedics arrived.When he saw they were being treated by rescuers,he left instead of staying for potential adoration. "I knew they were OK so I just walked home," Colton said.He then added jokingly,"I still had to get home and I didn't think they'd be able to take me home on the way to the hospital." When he got to his house,Colton told his mother Kathy what happened. "I can't tell you my exact words,I was very surprised,"Kathy said."We went to the fire station and they told me the same thing he said." Colton attributes his quick actions to what he has learned in Gaither's JROTC program.Besides acting fast,he told others on the scene not to throw water on the fire because of all the gas and oil. "That also comes from working at McDonald's,"Colton said."A fire like that, water just spreads it around." Kathy sent a letter to Colton's JROTC instructors,Senior Chief Edward Donohue and Capt.Sreten Zivovic,along with Gaither principal Marie Whelan.The letter thanked them for helping teach Colton to do the right thing and also to tell them what he had done.After learning about what he did, his instructors nominated Colton. Colton said he wants to join the military after graduating.His older brother,James, served four years in the Middle East,following in the footsteps of Kathy (20 years in the armed forces) and Colton's grandfather, James,who served four years. Colton is currently the commanding officer of Gaither's JROTC athletic team and also the executive officer of the academic team. "JROTC is all about working as a team," Colton said."When I saw that car on fire I felt like that was a member of my team in trouble.I just acted the way I've been taught." KIDS ARE HEROESSt. Joseph's Children's Hospital received 91 nominations for this year's Kids are Heroes campaign. Of those selected, a few are from northwestern Hillsborough County, including Jonathon Bermudez and Colton Shepard. Since 1996, the program has honored more than 1,000 kids ages 5-18 from across Tampa Bay. Winners will be announced this December.Jonathon Bermudez helps teammate go extra mile Abdin Fator (left) and Jonathon Bermudez have developed a strong friendship through cross country.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 01,2010 20 Your Community Guide to Food & Fun Dining & Entertainment Dining & Entertainment By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comA wrap-around porch and the sweet smell of barbecue smoke invite passersby on SR 52 to take a brief detour and grab a bite to eat at On Q Smokehouse Grill. Linda Bailey,who lives between St.Leo and Dade City,has been enjoying the foods prepared by Willie Flott ever since he set up his mobile business on the vacant lot next to the wood-frame house in St.Leo about a year ago. Flott set up the temporary shop to get to know the community and to find out whether there was a demand for the kind of food he serves,which is primarily,but not exclusively,barbecue. When Flott found the community was receptive to his offerings,he decided to rent the house at 33030 SR 52 and do some renovations to get it ready for his business. Bailey is glad Flott decided to settle in. "I was one of his first customers,"Bailey said.She enjoys his barbecue chicken,his greens,his catfish and pork tenderloin Ð but she's simply wild about his fried green tomatoes. "I really haven't had them like this since my mom made them for me when I was a girl,"Bailey said."That was a long time ago." Paul Brenot and Marcia Stone shared a meal there recently,when one of the specials that day was a Fried Green Tomato BLT. Stone said she enjoyed the fried green tomatoes and found the bacon to be smoky and meaty.Brenot reveled in the restaurant's atmosphere."I love sitting outside here,"he said."The weather we're having right now is exquisite." Flott said he built the porch on the restaurant and reconfigured some spaces inside before he moved his business into the house."I personally thought the porch was my biggest selling point,"Flott said.He thinks it creates a welcoming ambience and lures patrons Ñ especially when the building is lit after dark.Flott said he prepares his barbecue by rubbing a mixture of spices onto the meats and cooking them over charcoal on custombuilt championship smokers. "We don't put any sauces on anything.We want the customer to taste the flavor of the meat,"he said. Customers can choose from a variety of sauces, including one concocted by Flott. The sauce,which has a mustard base, is also available by the bottle.The menu includes sandwiches and burgers,salads, appetizers,platters, kids'meals,beer, wine,coffee,tea and soda. Besides fried green tomatoes,appetizers include asparagus fries,corn nuggets,fried pickles,fried mushrooms and chicken wings.The restaurant also sells bulk items and offers catering. Flott said he can handle parties of any size and has catered funerals,church picnics and other gatherings. The name of the restaurant is a play on the phrase,"on cue," which is how Flott wants to serve up his food Ñ prepared properly and served right on time to satisfy his customers. The restaurant is open seven days a week,from 11 a.m.to 9 p.m., Monday through Thursday and from 8 a.m.until 10 p.m.on Friday,Saturday and Sunday. For more information about On Q,call (352) 668-4821 or visit www.onqsmokehousegrill.com.On Q offers barbeque and more in St.Leo On Q Smokehouse Grill is located in a colorful wood-frame house on the edge of St. Leo.
