'Hold your hats' -

growth is coming

to Pasco County

By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

While the economy continues to strug-
gle, Pasco County leaders are working to
lay the groundwork to position the county
to market itself more effectively to attract
good jobs.
There's no doubt that change is com-
ing, said Bob Gray of Strategic Planning
Group Inc., which has been hired to help
the county develop its strategic economic
development plan.
"The bottom line is in the next 20-25
years, everything you see in Pasco County
is going to double," Gray said. "If we
thought we saw an impact before, hold
your hats.
"The Pasco of the future will begin to
mirror Pinellas and Hillsborough. 2035 will
not be your father's Pasco County," Gray
said.
Pasco County is the state's 12th largest
county. Its population grew from 36,000 in
1960 to about 471,000 now, Gray told a
group of stakeholders assembled to help
fashion the county's economic develop-
ment plan. The group, representing a
variety of interests - including govern-
ment, businesses, retail, banking, real
estate, utilities, citizens and others - met
last week at Alice Hall Community Center
in Zephyrhills.
The group is meeting again this week
to identify the county's strengths, weak-
nesses, opportunities and threats, as part of
the process to create the economic devel-
opment plan.
The issue is not whether Pasco County
will grow and get more jobs;it's whether it
will grow the way it wants and get the
kind of jobs that it wants, Gray said.
The county has tracts that are large
enough for development, said Richard
Gehring, planning and growth manage-
ment administrator for Pasco County. He
envisions Dade City and Zephyrhills as
being potential anchors in the economic
development plan. He also noted the
county has been divided into five market
areas.
Those are the east, west, north, south
and central market areas, according to
See GROWTH, page 13

The local Zephyrhills
AMVETS Post 550 found a big-
ger location and made the move
to 4645 Airport Road in
Zephyrhills.The Post had previ-
ously been located at an older,
smaller facility at 4822 Gall Blvd.
During a guided tour, Post
Finance Officer Tony Baker
proudly pointed out that,
"Each division has an office."
That's something the old facili-
ty was not able to


invc


accommodate: an office for
the Auxiliary, Sons, Officers of
the Post and an office for the
Post Commander Jim Marshall.
The members seemed ex-
tremely happy to have a larger
dance floor and nice stage.The
building, formerly the Zephyr
Palms Event Center and before
that the Senior Center on
Airport Road, will also be con-
venient for a USO event
sponsored by the AMVETS, slat-
ed for the same weekend as
the Bivouac and Barracks at the
Zephyrhills Airport. Bivouac
and Barracks will be Feb. 18-20.


AMVETS Women's Auxiliary state president Dee Baggett (left)
and Yvonne Dunton, local president of Auxiliary 550, both had

remarked that the "State of Florida did almost $2 million in serv-
ice work for the Auxiliary last year."

Children's book promotes the value of self-acceptance


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Chances are you've never heard of Ivan, a
giraffe who teaches children the impor-
tance of self-acceptance.
If Wesley Chapel author Linda Rossetti
Brocato has it her way, though, copies of her
book,"Ivan Becomes a Hero," will one day
be in the hands of children around the
globe.
"I want to get it wherever there is a child
whose heart can be touched by Ivan,"
Brocato said.
She thinks the book delivers an impor-
tant message.
"In this day and time, when there is so
much bullying and unkindness, I want chil-
dren to know that they are fearfully and
wonderfully made, even if they're different,"
said Brocato,who based the book's central
theme on Psalm 139,Verse 14.
The verse reads in part:"I am wonderful-
ly and fearfully made."
"I want them (children) to see that they


are a treasure. It's not an accident the way
they are made," said Brocato, a former
Sanders Memorial Elementary school
teacher, who just completed a recent book
tour in Mississippi.
Brocato said she came up with the idea
for her book 12 years ago, while visiting a
wildlife refuge in California.When she saw a
baby giraffe at the refuge, she jotted down
the first words of her book onto a napkin.
She didn't give the scribbled note any
more thought until after being forced away
from the classroom by multiple myeloma, a
cancer of the bone marrow.
Brocato went through chemotherapy
and stem cell transplants in her battle
against the disease at the Centers of
Excellence in Little Rock,Ark.
"I had a lot of time alone. I couldn't
teach," Brocato said. Nor could she continue
the ministry that she had her husband,
Frank, had done for more than two decades.
During that solitary time, she said: "I
heard in my heart,"But what about Ivan?"

Center supports healthy lifestyle


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

Get ready to change your life.
That's the message the Center for Living
Wellness conveys to those arriving at the
beige building at 19105 N. US 41 in Lutz.
It's a unique place that offers fitness,yoga,
nutrition and cooking classes - and, which
operates side by side with the SeVaMed
Institute, where Dr. Shilpa P Saxena combines
elements of conventional and natural medi-
cine in her integrative medicine practice to
provide care that goes beyond pharmaceuti-
cals.
Saxena met Michele Drielick, executive di-
rector for the Center for Living Wellness,
when both women were at a health and well-
ness expo.
They discovered they were kindred spirits
because both of them want to help people
live healthier lives and neither felt the tradi-
tional approach to healthcare was working.
When a doctor tells a patient that he or
she should "stop eating white stuff and start
exercising" it is unlikely that the advice will
result in real change, Drielick said.
But when people become knowledgeable
about diet and nutrition and truly understand
how what they eat and how much they move
affects their overall health, they become advo-
cates for their own good health, Drielick said.
"We want our office to be targeted toward
health;' Saxena said.The doctor said she went
into medicine because she wanted to heal
people. She soon learned, however, that she
was spending much of her time scribbling
prescriptions.
But she now works in an environment
that fosters an opportunity for patients to
make real and lasting life changes.
When Saxena gets a patient that has high
blood pressure, she can prescribe medication
to treat the condition, the doctor said.
But she also encourages her patients to


make lifestyle changes that can help them re-
claim their good health and stop taking
medications.
That's where the Center for Living
Wellness comes in. It helps people to become
more knowledgeable about diet and nutrition
and provides a supportive atmosphere to
help them change their lifestyle.
Some center members are Saxena's pa-
tients, but anyone is welcome to join the
center, Drielick said.
The center's monthly membership is $39
per month, without a monthly commitment,
for unlimited exercise classes, including fit-
ness and yoga classes. Those interested in
joining can get a free week to preview the
center's offerings.
One advantage the center offers is small
exercise classes, said Amber Swortzel, a fitness
instructor at the center.That allows for more
individualized instruction, she said.
"I've worked in fitness centers before
where I've had 40 people in a class.When I
have 40 people in a class, it's hard for me to
see," she said. She normally has about a half-

dozen members in her Monday night class.
The center also offers wellness lectures,
cooking classes and a food coop that mem-
bers can join to order organic fruits and
vegetables.
Cristin Becker, ofWesley Chapel, recently
was at the center with her 4-year-old son,
Liam and her 3-year-old daughter, Chloe, pick-
ing up the family's order of organic fruits and
veggies.
Becker had nothing but praise for the cen-
ter. She described it as "a kind of community
that offers a lot of support.
"It helps to have like-minded people,"
Becker said."It helps to recommit you to your
passion for vibrant living."
Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a chal-
lenge in a culture that doesn't make it easy to
do, said Becker, who has attended wellness
lectures and cooking classes at the center.
"To change how you live can be tough,"
Becker said."It is hard.They never try to tell
you otherwise because if they say otherwise,
they're lying;' she said.
Becker said she hopes her children will
learn how to lead healthy lives because
they're growing up in a household that values
good health. "They won't have the bad
habits;' she said.
Besides its current offerings, the center
will be adding two initiatives in January
It is launching its Living Wellness
University, which will provide online
health/nutrition classes, Healthy Gourmand
cooking classes, yoga and fitness classes to
subscribers for $14.95 a month.
It also is beginning its 90-Day Shred, which
is $125 a month and it is $195 a month when
it includes a personalized nutrition plan.
"That's a very intense program. It will
yield absolute results. You do it, it's done,"
Drielick said.
Saxena said conventional medicine can be
likened to trying to plug holes in a wall to
prevent a flood.

year-old son, Liam and her 3-year-old
daughter, Chloe, pick up some organic veg-
gies. (Photos by Glenn Gefers of
www.Photosby3g.com)

The real issue, Saxena said, is how to re-
duce the water on the other side of the wall.
Saxena strives to help people understand
complex medical topics so they can bring
about real, meaningful life-long change,
The doctor noted that three things have a
profound effect on a person's general health:
the way we eat, the way we move and the
way we manage our stress.
However, physicians are not trained in nu-
trition, exercise or stress management, Saxena
said.
The Center for Living Wellness strives to
help people improve their overall health.
"By improving diet and lifestyle, we have
seen amazing results. Diet and exercise can
make all of the difference;' Drielick said.
People can either feed their disease or pre-
vent their disease, Saxena said.
"We are going to change the way you be-
have and live so that you have the chance to
live well;' Saxena said.

When an 'Eagle' helps the troops


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

For every 100 children who partici-
pate in Boys Scouts ofAmerica (BSA), only
two ever reach the rank of Eagle Scout.
Add Land O' Lakes resident Sam Edley to
the list.
The 17-year-old Sunlake High student
earned the award Nov. 20 with a less-than-
conventional final project. Instead of the


traditional ideas of building, cleaning or
replacing something, Sam decided to col-
lect thousands of dollars worth of
supplies for U.S. troops serving overseas.
"I got the idea when we did a service
project with Mr. (Bob) Williams with
Support Our Troops in Wesley Chapel,"
Sam said."We folded sheets that were sent
to the troops because they didn't have
any clean ones and he told us they're al-
ways looking for donations."


Sam Edley gives a check for $500 to Bob Williams of Support Our Troops to help pay for
postage.

He was able to col-

the troops and an
additional $500 to
help pay for the
shipping.
"I think it was a
very good idea,"
said Dave Edley,

more comfort-

Dave's father and Sam's uncles on both
sides of his family served in the armed
forces.
Sam started getting thank you letters
from those who received his care pack-
ages a few weeks after they went out.
Williams even gave him an American flag
that was flown on a plane overseas that
was sent back by some of the troops.
"I wasn't expecting anything like that,"
Sam said."That was very special to get."
The Edleys put the flag in a glass case
displayed in their living room.
Sam first joined scouting while in third
grade.After graduating from Cub Scouts,
the youth program of BSA, he joined
Troop 33 in Land O' Lakes. In all, he
earned 34 merit badges.

Maria Edley, Sam's mother, has also

"The biggest change was in that first

each year he became more and more of a

Bagel shop owner finds her calling in serving others


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

We all have turning points in our lives.
For Linda Carr, one of hers came when
she was in her young 20s and her mother
asked her to fill in for her at the concession
stand for Carr's brother's football team.
Carr worked the French fry station and
had a blast.
"I absolutely loved it," she said.
She decided that was the kind of work
she wanted to do.
Carr went on to carve out a career in the
fast-food industry,working for chains includ-
ing Burger King, Checker's, Wendy's and
Subway for a combined total of more than
two decades.
About six years ago, Carr had another
turning point. She decided to go into busi-
ness for herself.
She decided she wanted to have a bagel
restaurant, but she didn't know a darn thing
about making bagels.
So, she made a deal with some bagel shop
owners: She'd work in their shops for free, if
they would teach her the tricks of the trade.
"People thought I was crazy," she said.
But she observed: "There is no bagel
school."
She spent time working at bagel shops in
various locales, including Manhattan, New
Port Richey, Ocala and Ft. Lauderdale.
The bagel shop operators were generous
with their knowledge, she said.
Bagels are not all created equal, Carr said,
adding there is no denying that New York
bagels taste different than those made else-
where.


"The difference between NewYork bagels
and here is the water," Carr said, conceding
she can't replicate that distinctive taste.
However, she said, she strives to satisfy
her customers by providing fresh bagels in a
variety of flavors.
"I have a lot of New Yorkers come in who
say the bagels are good."
She guarantees that the bagels sold in her
Bagelicious & More shops are made that day.
Whatever isn't sold that day is made into
bagel chips or donated to the Helping Hands
Pantry at Atonement Lutheran Church, 29617
SR 54.
Carla Haberland of the church's food
pantry said Bagelicious provides hundreds of
pounds of bagels each week in donations.
Bagelicious & More has two locations
now and is planning to add a third soon.The
quick-service cafe at 30032 SR 54 inWesley
Chapel opened about two years ago and an-
other location opened about six months ago
in Zephyrhills at 6215 Abbot Station Drive.
A third location will be set up at Moffitt
Cancer Center at International Plaza, a new
Moffitt location that is slated to open next
summer.
The cafe inWesley Chapel has a simple
decor with chairs and tables, a flat-screen tel-
evision and freeWi-Fi.The bagels and cream
cheese spreads come in a wide assortment of
flavors, but the menu also has a broad array
of other items for breakfast, lunch or snacks.
The restaurant serves Seattle's Best Coffee
and offers all of the same specialty drinks as
are available at Starbucks, Carr said,mention-
ing she has a contract with them.
Popular lunch items include a chicken
salad melt, Cuban sandwiches, soups and sal-


ads. Burgers can be or-
dered on a bun or a
bagel, and there also are
salads, soups and wraps.
Bagelicious does
catering, handles orders
for sack lunches and pre-
pares breakfast for
Learning Gate Academy
in Lutz.
Kim Burns,who lives
inWesley Chapel, drops
by the restaurant about
three times a week.
"It's close to my Trisha Beams wit
home and it's quality Sarah Graham w
food;' she said.The turkey shop that serves I
club is one of her fa- Chapel. (Photos b
vorite sandwiches, she
said.
She thinks the prices are fair and she likes
the staff.
"They're very friendly," Burns said.
Carr also thinks highly of the staff."I enjoy
my staff. I enjoy teaching them."
One of her employees is her daughter, 28-
year-old Gayla Ramon, who works with her
at the Wesley Chapel location.
In one sense, this mother-daughter pair is
carrying on a family tradition.
"I lost my mother seven years ago," Carr
said. But, she noted,"When she (Carr's moth-
er) was 16 or 17 she worked in a restaurant
with her mother (Carr's grandmother).
After years of working for employers and
helping them make reach their sales goals,
Carr finds it deeply gratifying to be building a
business of her own.
The restaurant industry requires hard

)y B.C. Manion)

work and smart management, Carr said.
Besides serving tasty food, it requires keeping
tight control on costs for labor and supplies.
Besides the innate challenges of the
restaurant business, Carr said she's had an
added challenge with SR 54 being torn up
for road construction.
When the project is finished, it will be
fantastic, she said. Meanwhile, fewer cus-
tomers are willing to pull into her business
because it is harder to get out.
Even so, Carr has a really good feeling
about her future path in the bagel business.
"I felt very guided as I did this project,"
she said."Everything fell into place."
She is optimistic her business will contin-
ue to grow and thrive.
"Bagelicious will be well-known," she
predicted.

Talk about scary movies - ordering at the theater
Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we are heavier than
ever before. Samantha Taylor, owner of Pure Health Studios, offers tips on how to make
responsible choices while dining out at area restaurants.


By Samantha Taylor
Pure Health Studios
Many of us will
be shopping this
week for Christmas
S and a nice break
S I from the hustle and
bustle is to go see a
movie, so that is ex-
actly what I did. But
what do you do
when you are hun-
gry and you walk in and smell all the
aromas like buttery popcorn that seems to
go with the movies? You better be pre-
pared! I honestly never used to go to the
movies without gorging on a large pop-
corn, chocolate covered peanuts and a
large soda to the tune of 2,493 calories!
I used to use it as an excuse to pig out
until one day I saw a woman during the
previews, stuffing her face full of popcorn
and she probably would have been done
before the movie even started - just like
me. I realized that was just an excuse to
gorge and I needed to change my habits. I
first learned how to walk into a theater
and breathe through my mouth and not
through my nose, so I didn't even smell
the popcorn. I remember the first day I
ever watched a movie without eating any-
thing and it was like a miracle!
Recently, I visited the Cobb Theatre in
Wesley Chapel. I didn't have time to stop
and grab some dinner before the movie
(which is what I normally do so I am not
tempted) so I found something to eat
there.We all know there aren't the most
nutritious things to eat at a movie theater. I
didn't feel like eating popcorn because I
eat air-popped popcorn all the time at


home, so I got a pretzel. Yes "Miss Eat
Whole Grain" wherever you can, but there
was no option for whole grain, so you do
the best with what you have, right? It was
583 calories and 14 grams of fat including
the small side of nacho cheese sauce. I
used some discipline, consuming only half
of the cheese sauce. I sometimes use mus-
tard but I didn't. I eat so healthy most of
the time that you need to let yourself have
stuff like that every once in a while. For
you avid moviegoers who enjoy eating
popcorn at the movies, let's look at the
calories:
* Small popcorn with NO added but-
ter: 225 calories and 11 grams of fat
(Best choice)
* Small popcorn with added butter:
630 calories and 50 grams of fat! (Whoh
momma)
* Medium popcorn with NO added
butter: 434 calories and 20 grams of fat
(Not too bad)
* Large popcorn with NO butter: 664
calories and 31 grams of fat (Pretty high)
* Large popcorn with butter: 1,640
calories and 126 grams of fat (Yikes!
Run away)
The other challenge with popcorn is
the salt, which can make you retain lots of
water, hence, more weight gain. If you
must have something to drink, grab a
water or do I like I did and get the hot tea
with honey.That helped get my mind off
munching on food while watching the
movie Ligic, lI"(which, by the way, was a
great movie)

dering, visit Samantha Taylor's blog at

Keep it simple in the garden


By Jeannie Hayes and BJ Jarvis
Pasco Cooperative Extension

At the end of the year, life is very hectic
running around decorating, shopping, visit-
ing with friends. We all need to shorten
our "to do" lists not just at the holidays, but
also during the rest of the year. Here are a
few things that can help make gardening a
little simpler.
Gardeners can't help wanting to add
more garden gems to the landscape only
to realize later there isn't enough time to
establish them or keep up with weeding.
Sometimes, plants may not even make it
into the ground.
It is time to step back and find some
ways to make garden life easier. Here are a
few simple and inexpensive ideas from
Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM to keep
our landscapes looking good without fur-
ther stress:
-Plant groundcovers that generally re-
quire less fertilizing, mowing and
maintenance once established.
-Add instant garden color by sinking
an entire pot of colorful annuals into the
ground.When plants start to fade,just pull
out the inner pots and replace. When
chrysanthemums fade, plant cheerful poin-
settias.
-Mount rain gauges at eye level for
easy reading. Mailboxes and fence posts
are ideal.
-Add a rain barrel at your roof down-
spout to collect water for container plants
when it is dry. No guttering? Just place an
open barrel at the valley where two house
sections meet. Rainwater usually gushes
down there. Make sure the barrel has a
screen on the top to prevent mosquitoes
and a spigot at the bottom for easy access
to water.
-Container plants in the sun dry out
fast and may need daily watering. Cut the
maintenance time by adding wetting
agents, such as hydrogels, to your planting
mix. Many major brands offer potting
mixes with moisture holding gels.
-Stop the spread of invasive weeds by
vacuuming the seeds with a dust buster or
shop vacuum.These work well to collect


Groundcovers can eliminate the small spots
that are often awkward to mow and maintain.

desirable wildflower seeds too. Clean the
unit well between uses.
-Strips of old carpeting two-foot-wide
make instant weed-free garden walkways.
Turn carpeting over with the backing on
the top for a more natural look.
-Piles of utility mulch from the power
company have many uses besides sup-
pressing weeds and moderating soil
temperatures. Create an instant berm that
can become a holding area for container
plants by sinking the pots.The containers
will not blow over and require less water-
ing. Use it to make compost on a big scale
for your veggie garden. If you have chil-
dren or grandchildren, running over mulch
piles is a great way for children to run off
some of that candy-driven energy.
If you find yourself with a few extra
minutes this holiday season and aren't sure
what exactly to do in the garden, visit the
University of Florida's gardening calendar.
It is broken down by region and Pasco
County tasks can be found in central
Florida section at http://solutionsfory-
ourlife.ufl.edu/lawnandgarden/calendar.


BJ Jarvis, horticulture agent, and
Jeannie Hayes, Florida yards and neighbor-
hoods assistant are a part of the Pasco
Cooperative Extension, a free service of the
Unit i,, -ilr of Florida and Pasco County
government.Jeannie and BJ can be reached

Rotary helps Meals on Wheels
The Zephyrhills Daybreak Rotary Club re-
cently gave $1,000 to the East Pasco Meals
On Wheels. Club member Manny Funes
and club president Lea McKinney gave the
check to Meals on Wheels executive director
Cindy Beson.

United Way seeks blankets
The cold weather has come early to Pasco
County along with the need for blankets.
When the weather is projected to drop to 36
degrees or below, cold weather shelters are
opened.Traditionally these shelters housed
single adults, but with the difficult economic
times they are now also seeing families with


children.These shelters are operated by vari-
ous faith based and nonprofit organizations in
the community.
There is currently no funding available to
assist these organizations, but the need is still
there and blankets are scarce. If anyone has
blankets that they would be willing to donate
they can drop them off at the United Way of
Pasco County at 8040 Washington St. in Port
Richey
United Way of Pasco County will ensure
that all blankets are given to the cold weather
shelters.The office is open from 8:30 a.m.-5
p.m. Monday through Friday. For more infor-
mation, call Kristen King at (727) 835-2028 or
e-mail kristen.king@uniredwaypasco.org.

We shouldn't talk down to them, but look across at them.
Books should be friendly, and as much like magnets as possible....


They should promote wondering.
They should be better than good.

BOOK, from page 1
That's when she realized that Ivan's story
was divinely inspired, Brocato said.
Besides being a potential source of en-
couragement for children, the book also
helped Brocato as she coped with the dark
days of her illness.
"Ivan was my beacon of light," she said.
The book tells the tale of a little giraffe
who is mocked and scorned and treated un-
kindly, but who ultimately succeeds in his
journey of self-acceptance.
The book was written for children ages 3
to 12, but has appeal for all ages, she said.
"Everybody has been wounded and
everyone has been rejected, so they can
identify,"' she said.
Going from a mere idea for a story to a
completed manuscript to a published book
has been an adventure, Brocato said.
She was shepherded through the
process by Linda J. Hawkins,her publisher
from Heart to Heart Christian Books, who
served as a consultant and helped Brocato
to find the book's illustrator, copy editors


and designer.'She mentored me throughout
the process."
"My biggest prayer was for the illustrator
not to be ordinary" Brocato said.
The project's original illustrator quit, but
then another highly respected illustrator be-
came available to do the job.
"The timing was perfect," Brocato said,
praising the skill of the illustrator, Donna
Brooks. "She helped make Ivan come
alive."
Brocato decided to pay to publish the
book rather than shopping it to various pub-
lishers. She said she wanted to retain control
over the book's design and content, as well
as to own the copyright.
The author said everybody in her family
supported her efforts, especially her hus-
band."I feel like he's Ivan's daddy," she said.
She sees the market for her book as "any-
one who wants a good book with a life
message for children."
If the book succeeds, she plans to use
the proceeds to pursue publication of four
additional books, including one about her


mother and a sequel about Ivan.
Brocato has done some book signing,
but welcomes the opportunity to speak at
local bookstores, at club meetings and
will even do author signing in private
homes.
For more information about the author,
her book, or her availability, go to www.lin-
darossettibrocato.com or call (813)
973-3039.


GROWTH, from page 1
background documentation provided at the
meeting.
Gray said the county doesn't have a
workforce problem because it draws its
workforce from the region. He also said its
proximity to the University of South Florida
is a huge benefit.
However, John Hagen, president and
CEO of the Pasco Economic Development
Council, said being able to draw from the re-
gion isn't the only issue.
"My concern is that we create high-


skilled jobs, but our residents don't get the
jobs," Hagen said. Efforts must be made to
help Pasco's workforce develop the kinds of
skills needed to secure those high-quality
jobs, he said.
Hagen is optimistic about Pasco's future,
but said it will take hard work to achieve
what the county wants.
"We're well-positioned to take future
growth here," Hagen said. However, he
added, the county can't merely sit back and
wait."I think we're going to have to make
that happen. If we're anti-growth, the
growth will go elsewhere."Things are going
to get shaken up and we want to be the
shakers, not the shaken,' Hagen said.
Gray said the county's economic devel-
opment plan has to start with a vision:
"What do we want?"
It's also important to get community buy-
in regarding the importance of economic
development, Gray said.
"We have to get a buy-in because there is
going to be a cost for implementing the
plan," Gray said.

Killer bees stalk region


Local control company sees increase in their numbers

Nio Sanchez has seen an in-
crease in calls about Africanized
honeybee hives across Pasco and
Hillsborough counties during the
last several months.
He works AIM Termite and
Pest Control Specialists in
Wesley Chapel and said he does
not remember their numbers �
being so high in past years.
Sanchez says the Africanized
bees are very aggressive and
that he has received more calls
recently about them.
The bees, sometimes called
killer bees because of that aggres- !
sive behavior, first appeared in /
Florida in 2002, according to Jerry
Hayes, chief of the apiary section
of the Florida Department of Afric
Agriculture.They came from ships swai
from Central and South America bran
or Mexico through ports like the Univ
Port of Tampa.
"African bees were brought
to Brazil in 1957 because the
European honeybees that are used to
pollinate most of the crops in this
country didn't do well in that tropical
environment," Hayes said."What hap-
pened is the environmental blunder of
the century. Some of the queen
Africanized bees got out and they
spread across all of South and Central
America."
When the African bees cross breed
with European bees they became
Africanized. It is virtually impossible to


anized bees do not need solid structures to
rm. They sometimes use areas such as tree
ches or long leaves. (Photo courtesy of the
ersity of Florida)

tell by sight if a bee is European or
Africanized.
James Ellis, assistant professors at the
University of Florida's department of en-
tomology, said if a European nest is
disturbed, generally 10 bees repel the in-
truder. More than 1,000 Africanized
ones will respond to the same attack.
"The Africanized bees are actually
smaller and have the same type of
venom as the European ones," Ellis said.
"They are a problem because they at-
tack in huge numbers and don't stop.'


Ellis said they are especially a
problem because vibrations caused
by things like tractors,lawnmowers
and power equipment agitate
them.
"Once a bee stings something,
S they release a scent that causes the
Others to attack," Ellis said."The best
thing you can do is run and get in-
' side a building because they will
f chase you."
Ellis said someone being stung
should cover their head and air-
ways because the bees will try and
get into the nose and down their
throat to continue stinging. Diving
in water does not work because
the bees will wait until the person
comes up for air.
Hayes said the best thing to do
to prevent hives from forming in
_ their neighborhood is remove any-
thing that could become their
home.
"Holes in sheds or other build-
ings should be sealed up," Hayes
said. "The Africanized bees will
make a home out of any little bit of
protection, so removing anything they
can turn into a hive is important."
Hayes said any hive should be report-
ed to a pest control company for
eradication.
Hayes added only one person has
been killed by the Africanized bees in
Florida, which happened two years ago
in Kissimmee. Several dogs and small
farm animals have also been killed along
with a 900-pound horse in Hendry

County that had four pounds of bees found
in its stomach. The Africanized bees flew
into the horse's stomach to sting it.
"I sometimes have people ask why we
should get rid of them and I tell them it's a
public safety issue," Hayes said."There aren't
any benefits of having the Africanized bees
because our 275,000 colonies of European
bees controlled by beekeepers can pollinate
all of our crops."
Hayes said Florida crops that rely on bees
for pollination include strawberries, blueber-
ries, avocadoes and watermelons to name a
few.
In the early period of the spreading, the
Africanized bees' new range increased by
200-300 miles a year. Hayes said they first
reached Texas in 1990.They have since colo-
nized all the Southwestern United States
along with Florida.
Hayes said Africanized bees reproduce
much faster than European bees. Because of
that,Africanized bees form new colonies, or
swarms, about 15-16 times a year to a
European group's one to two.
"The Africanized bees come from a
place with no winter, so instead of produc-
ing a lot of honey they make more bees,"


Hayes said.
The spread of the Africanized variety
happened right around the time European
bees started to die out in the wild because
a parasitic mite, the varroa mite, was intro-
duced to NorthAmerica.The mites affect
Africanized bees as well, but Hayes said
they have a defensive mechanism to re-
duce its spread. Instead of breaking off and
forming two colonies, when a group is in-
fected, only the clean bees get the signal to
swarm.
"The wild population of European hon-
eybees are basically all gone in this country,"
Hayes said. "The Africanized bees moved
into the void left after the mites wiped out
the wild European bees.Any ones left were
forced out by the Africanized bees.The only
ones left are those of beekeepers."
Hayes emphasized the point that all bees
are not bad and without beekeepers,
Florida's many crops would not grow. He
said people should encourage and welcome
beekeepers because their European bees do
much more good than harm.

Shawn Brown helps rally Wesley Chapel girls basketball


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com We!
A few weeks ago it was uncer- Playe
tain who would lead the Wesley Hann
Chapel High girls basketball team, Saph2
but new coach Shawn Brown has HeatI
brought the team together despite Britta
having no summer workouts or Dean
preseason. Tiffan
"We didn't know what was Sara I
going on with the program," said Debb
senior Hannah Noble. "We were Miche
lucky to get such a good coach so Fanta
late in the game."
The Wildcats (5-4) reached
back-to-back regional finals the last two sea-
sons with Karim Nohra as coach, but he was
not retained after the season. He is currently
coaching atAcademy at the Lakes.
Stepping in for Nohra is Brown, who is
the sports and camp director at the East
Pasco Family YMCA. He has also coached
the Orlando Magic's youth basketball camps
since 2005, but this is his first head coach-
ing position in high school.
"It's pressure right off the bat," Brown
said of taking over a successful program.
"The girls expect a lot and want to continue
to win. Part of the challenge was a lot of
girls transferred to other schools.We basical-
ly have just one player who played in
significant game action last year in Hannah. I
commend her for staying her senior year
when others left."


Sapharianece Reynolds said new coach
Shawn Brown's positive energy has helped
with the transition in the program.

For Noble, the choice to stay was easy.
"This is my school and I thought it
would be like me betraying my school to go
somewhere else," Noble said."I've grown up
here and played middle school basketball at
Weightman (Middle), so this is the only
place I wanted to play my senior year."
Brown said Noble will be leaned on a lot
this year.
"She has to be our leading scorer every
night for us to be successful," Brown said.
"That's a lot of pressure, but then she also
has to be our leader as well because she's
the only one with any experience. She's al-
ready shown she's able to do both."
Noble has been a point guard for most of
her playing career, but has moved to shoot-
ing guard this season to free her up to
score. Now running the point for the
Wildcats is Tiffany Echevarria, a sophomore.
She has played point guard since the fifth
grade and learned a lot from watching
Noble play last season.
"When I watched her last year calling
the plays I wanted to be like her," Echevarria
said. "I've learned so much from her."
It was a little daunting running the of-
fense, but a talk with Noble before the

Wesley Chapel girls basketball coach.

season let Echevarria know she could do it.
"She told me we were in this together,"
Echevarria said."It made me feel like I was-
n't alone in the backcourt. I know we can
rely on each other."
The Wildcats will be a guard-oriented
team because they do not have a lot of
height.The tallest player is 5-foot-11 junior
center Brittany Byrd, who almost did not
play this season.
"I'd decided I didn't want to play to
focus on volleyball, but I went to a game at
the start of the season," Byrd said."I was sit-
ting in the bleachers watching them play
and it just hit me that I should be playing
with them."
At first glance Byrd does not seem like
the kind of player who would like the rough
and tumble action near the net, but when
asked about playing the position her eyes lit
up.
"I love playing down in the post," Byrd
said. "I'm not the kind of girl who likes play-
ing guard and shooting from on the
perimeter. I love being down there and
fighting for rebounds and blocking shots. It's
why I love basketball."
Down by the net with Byrd is sopho-
more forward Sara Hordges. She missed the
end of last season with a slight tear to her
ACL, but she is nearly 100 percent.
"Really it's just trusting my knee,"
Hordges said. "It's basically healthy and
coach just said I have to believe I can stop
and change directions without having a
problem."
Hordges has been working with Brown

and will be leaned on as both the No. 1
scoring option and leader of the squad.
to get her knee strong again and she be-
lieves his training is the reason she has been
able to return to the court so fast.
Another player who enjoys Brown's pres-
ences is Sapharianece Reynolds. She said
she believes in staying positive even when
things are not going her way.
"If I put my head down because I've
missed some shots, then I'm not thinking
about the game,' Reynolds said."... I learned
that from my mom. I always try and keep
the rest of the team positive even when
we're down and so does coach. He has that
same belief in staying positive'.
Wesley Chapel had a game against Nov.
14 at Ridgewood High, but results were not
available by press time. The Wildcats next
play at Sunlake High Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m.

A drill for the season

Christmas tree pattern develops clubface control


By Derek Highley
Golf Columnist
We're well into
December and I
thought I'd pass
along a drill with ties
Sto the holiday season,
at least in name any-
way. I call this drill
the Christmas tree
drill and it is a great
practice exercise for anyone struggling
with direction control.
It is very difficult to go from hitting the
ball crooked to hitting the ball straight by
going to the practice range and trying to
hit straight balls. The best path to a
straighter ball flight is actually to hit balls
off line on purpose. This works well for
two reasons, the first being by intentional-
ly hitting shots left or right you begin to
focus in on controlling the clubface.
Secondly, this drill provides some parame-
ters to work off of as you begin to
straighten your shot.
You can do this drill with any club in
your bag, but I suggest starting with a mid-
iron. Be sure to work your way up through
your bag to the driver.
To start, pick a target in the middle of
the range and set up as if you are going to
hit straight shots. Now hit your first three
balls so they hook and land left of the tar-
get.
The primary goal is to make sure your
ball is turning left. It really doesn't matter
at this point how far left, in fact for the
first few the farther left the better.After
you successfully hit three shots in a row to
the left, hit the next three balls so they
turn in the opposite direction.
The second phase of the drill is where


the Christmas tree pattern takes shape.
On the second go round we are going
to limit how far left and right the ball can
turn.What you need to do is continue to
set up to the middle target, but now pick
two other targets one about 30 yards to
the left of center and the other 30 yards
right of center.
With your next three balls the goal
again is to have the ball turn left, but this
time it cannot go farther left then your
secondary target. Same again on the right
side. Repeat a third time, moving your left
and right secondary targets in 10 yards.
Hit three shots turning left and three
turning right, the goal being to land the
ball inside your target parameters. Repeat
a fourth time, moving the targets in an-
other 10 yards, now your margin of error
has become 10 yards left or right of your
target.
You have created a Christmas tree ef-
fect by starting with a wide base and
narrowing as you go.
This is a great drill to develop or re-
gain clubface control. By starting off with
a wide target you allow yourself to really
overdo opening and closing the club-
face, a sensation you need to feel in
order to give you a good starting point to
back off from. Slowly narrowing your tar-
get as you progress through the drill
allows the feel of controlling the club-
face to sink in and leads to much more
accurate shots.

Conquistadors bring home national championship


Title may bring more success
By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Each year KimWhitney sets out to win a
volleyball national title, but this season that
goal seemed a little more likely.
"When we were coming up with our
goals a couple months ago everyone said win
a national championship," said Whitney, who
has been Pasco-Hernando Community
College's (PHCC) coach for seven years."We
usually have a couple players say that, but this
year they all said it.I knew we were talented,
but that's when I knew we had a real chance
because they were focused on that goal."
The Conquistadors (36-7) won the
National Junior College Athletics Association
(NJCAA) Division II national championship in
Wisconsin Nov. 20 in five sets against the
Kansas-based Johnson County Community
College (JCCC). PHCC is the first Florida team
to win the title Division II title, the first athlet-
ic championship of any kind for the school.
The match was a close one at 26-24,13-
25,25-21,23-25, 15-12.JCCC actually scored
more points in the contest with 107 to

College Athletics Association Division II champi

PHCC's 102. Middle blocker Marlie Temple
scored the winning point on a block.
"When I saw that ball hit the court it was
the best feeling," Temple said. "You think
about winning a national title, but I didn't
think about being the one who put down
that winning point."
Whitney said the squad had lost the only
other two five-set matches this season. She
said the players really started focusing on
finishing out long matches and actually
worked on five-set and first to 15 drills in
the week of practice leading up to the
championship tournament.


The Conquistadors were
well represented on the All-
( Tournament Team, with
Outside hitter Desiree Ates
and Middle hitter Tazra Pitts
earning spots. Team captain
Ashley Seal was the tourna-
ment's MVP and Whitney was
named Coach of the
Tournament.
inior "It was a lot of hard work
onship. by everyone," said Seal."As the
setter you have to work with
everyone to set up a kill, so I
know it takes everyone to win. The MVP
should actually go to everyone on the team."
PHCC is a junior college with players
graduating after two years, which makes it
difficult for a team to establish itself on the
national stage.Whitney thinks the national
championship will help the program main-
tain its momentum.
"When we talk with kids about coming
here we've told them about what we're
building, but now we can tell them about
the championship we've won," Whitney
said."I think that will help us get more good
players to come to PHCC and hopefully that


means more championships."
Whitney and the program have already
been able to reach outside central Florida
for recruits. Of the 14 players on the roster,
five are from out of state including three
from Canada.
"I wanted to play in the United States
against the best players," said Temple, who is
from British Columbia, Canada. "When
coach Whitney told me they wanted me to
come to PHCC I knew I wanted to go there.
... It's a little weird to have three players
from Canada on the same Florida team, but
we play a lot more volleyball in Canada."
Along with winning, the Conquistadors
helped raise awareness about breast cancer
and raised money to research cures for the
disease. Players sold pink shirts during
October, which is Breast Cancer Awareness
Month, and accepted donations for the cause.
"They understand there are things more
important than volleyball and wanted to be
thought of as more than just a volleyball
team,"Whitney said."We've done this in the
past and I'm sure we'll do it again next year.
It fits in with the kind of young ladies here
and the type of program we want to have in
the future."

Tips on avoiding holiday scams I


A Laker/Lutz News staff report


Take Charge America offers these tips on
spotting fraudulent charities, travel rip-offs

mail.To avoid these rip-offs, only donate to
charities you know and trust. If a new chari-
ty piques your interest, be sure to verify its
existence on Charity Navigator or the BBB
Wise GivingAlliance. If you can't locate the
charity in question, use the online search
tools to find a different charity with a similar
mission.
* Fraudulent travel deals. Be sure to re-
search your options and only purchase
travel packages from reputable companies
you know and trust.
* Fake travel sites may offer amazing deals


on vacation rentals or hotels to lure you into
providing personal information that can be
used to steal your identity or tap your bank
account.This practice is known as"phishing."
* Fake contest alerts. Many scammers
use telemarketing to tempt consumers with
prizes from fake contests. Be very wary if
you get a call about winning a big-ticket
item such as a luxury vacation. Do not put
down a deposit or provide the caller with
any personal data. The call probably is a
scam, especially if you do not recall entering
a contest. Similar tactics are used by scam-
mers to solicit personal information through
cell phone text messages asking the recipi-
ent to call a toll-free number.This is referred
to as "smishing." Be sure to warn children
and senior citizens who may not be phone
savvy and may be more susceptible to these
kinds of scams.

A Laker staff report

Residents living in east and central
Pasco County and northern
Hillsborough County may not experi-
ence the winters that people in
northern states go through, but there
are still ways to minimize the amount
of chill that gets into your home -
and the amount of heat that gets out.
Here are some tips provided by the
National Association of the
Remodeling Industry to help your
homes from winter and to prevent
minor problems from turning into
major ones.

Winter maintenance
* Inspect your home for cracks or
holes in outside walls and foundations.
Use caulking to protect water pipes and
make sure that skylights and other roof
openings have proper weather stripping
to prevent cold from seeping in.
* Check water pipes for cracks and
leaks and have them repaired immediate-
ly. Even here, pipes can freeze if
temperatures dip low enough.
* Wrap exposed pipes with heating
tape to keep them from freezing.
* Keep your thermostat at a minimum
of 65 degrees to prevent your pipes from
freezing.
* Install an emergency pressure re-
lease valve in your plumbing system as an
added protection against freezing pipes.
The valve helps lessens pressure caused
by freezing pipes and reduces the chance
of pipes bursting.
* Learn how to shut the water off and
know where your pipes are located. If
your pipes free, the faster you can shut
off the water or direct the plumber to the
problem, the better chance you have to
prevent pipes from bursting.
* Make sure your attics, basements and
crawl spaces are adequately insulated and
well-ventilated. Insulation helps prevent
pipes from freezing and helps reduce
heating costs.
* Be sure your smoke and fire alarms
are working properly and that your heat-
ing system is serviced each year.
Residential fires increase during the win-
ter, so be sure to protect your family.

Tips for keeping the heat in
* Decrease drafts in your home by
checking windows and doors for air leaks
and sealing them with caulk or weather
stripping.
* Install storm windows or plastic
sheeting over single-pane windows. If


you are considering a replacement, con-
sider specially coated double-paned
windows designed to reflect heat back
into the room.
* Clean or replace the air filter to max-
imize the efficiency of the heating
system.
* Clean out ducts, warm-air registers,
baseboard heaters and radiators, too.
* Insulate ducts running through at-
tics, crawl spaces and garages. Check for
separation, holes and leaks and seal them.
* Seal the fireplace by keeping
dampers closed when the fireplace is not
in use. Or install glass doors to fit inside
the opening when burning out the fire.
Be sure to check your home warranty
to see if any of these repairs are covered.
If a repair requires a skill beyond your ca-
pability, you may want to hire a
professional remodeling contractor. Be
sure to check that the contractor is li-
censed and insured, and inquire with
your local government about any com-
plaints that may be pending against any
contractor you are considering.

Protecting pipes
Here are some more tips from
Hillsborough County's Water Resource
Division for protecting your water
pipelines from bursting.
* Protect pipes, especially if they are
exposed or the house or building insula-
tion is insufficient. Look for where the
water service enters the structure, and
use an old blanket or material available
from a home improvement store to insu-
late exposed piping.
* Homes and buildings with crawl
spaces are particularly susceptible to
wind and freezing temperatures, so out-
door pipes should be protected from the
elements.
* Secure water meter covers so the
meter and surrounding pipes are not ex-
posed.
* Insulate or cover exposed backflow
prevention devices on fire lines and irri-
gation systems.
* Disconnect any outside water hoses
from spigots, as water trapped inside can
freeze and crack the hose.
If piping does freeze, be patient. It
doesn't mean your water service has
been turned off.Wait a few hours for tem-
peratures to warm and the pipes to thaw.
Never use an open flame to thaw out a
pipe.
If a pipe does burst, turn off the water
supply by using the home's shut-off valve,
typically located under a sink or just out-
side the structure.

Who is watching the watchmen?


Video killed the radio star
Video killed the radio star
In my mind and in my car
We can't rewind, we've gone too far.
-The Buggies

By Randall Grantham
Community Columnist
I've been an out-
spoken advocate of
videotaping all po-
lice/citiz en
encounters for a
long time now. For
better or for worse,
it provides an unbi-
ased version of the
incident.And with digital technology and
cutting-edge forensics now available to the
government, more and more police and
their cars are equipped with more and
better video equipment.
Some have cameras that are running all
the time and capture individual stops from
start to finish and from several different
vantage points. They often show date,
time, direction of travel and even GPS pin-
pointed location.
While law enforcement agencies are all
in favor of this technology when it helps
their case, some seem to have a different
point of view when it is them shown on
film doing something that is not quite
SOP
Sometimes it's their own camera that
captures a less-than-flattering interaction
between the officers and the public. Do
you remember the incident in Miami
where the cops' camera shows them con-
cocting a story about how a woman's cat
jumped out of her car window causing
him to hit her as she swerved in front of
him, when actually he had rear-ended her
simply because he was not paying atten-
tion?
Years ago, the local sheriff's office
videotaped a"dynamic entry" by the SWAT
team to execute a search warrant in a drug
case.That was the first, last and only time
they did that. Once I introduced that as ev-
idence, the judge didn't appreciate the
discrepancies between it and the way the
cops had testified the raid went down and
threw out all the evidence.
Then there were the Polk County cops
caught on tape playing Wii at the their
drug suspect's home on his home surveil-
lance cameras
And now, there are videos every-
where.They're all throughout every major
retail outlet and even scan the parking
areas at Walmart, Busch Gardens and
other spots.They're atATMs and gas sta-
tions.And most threatening of all, they're
in citizens' hands on nearly every cell
phone sold today.
It may surprise you, but cops do not
like being the subject of video taping
when they are confronting a member of


the public.They will actually arrest you for
trying to film them in action.
Cops in Maryland recently raided a
home to seize evidence and arrest a man
for violating the state's wiretapping
statute. His crime was posting on
YouTube a helmet-cam recording of his
traffic stop where the unmarked officer
drew down on him for no apparent rea-
son. He faces up to 16 years in prison
because he had the audio recording with
the video.
Another woman in that state was re-
cently arrested for filming police
responding to a noise complaint in her
apartment complex.According to her ar-
rest report, she "confessed" to recording
the encounter for the purpose of showing
cops harassing people. She also recorded
audio and video.
Now, some states have actually crimi-
nalized filming police in action. In
Florida it is a crime to record audio of
people who don't consent to be record-
ed, but there's no law on the books
prohibiting a video-only recording of
events taking place in public. So, usually
the charge is trumped up to obstructing
an investigation, or disorderly conduct,
or, in one case where the officer blocked
the camera, battery on a law enforce-
ment officer.
Last year a model was arrested in
Boynton Beach for videotaping an en-
counter between her teenage son and
police in a movie theater. Prosecutors had
the good sense not to file charges, but the
ACLU is suing the police department for
the arrest.
The president of the national Fraternal
Order of Police defends these arrests, say-
ing that filming cops on duty "can
intimidate officers from doing their job."
Of course he also says that cops don't lie.
I'm not saying cops lie.All I'm saying is
that a video recording of something is
more reliable and unbiased than having
one or more parties give their version of
what happened. There are bound to be
omissions, exaggerations and personal spin
there that would not be present with a
video.
What's good for the goose should be
good for the gander and people, whether
they be witnesses or participants, should-
n't be intimidated or threatened out of
preserving that kind of evidence. And
criminalizing this type of thing just re-
minds me too much of those news feeds
you see from Communist China or the
like. It's just un-American!

ÔHold your hats'Ñ growth is coming to Pasco CountyBy B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comWhile the economy continues to struggle,Pasco County leaders are working to lay the groundwork to position the county to market itself more effectively to attract good jobs. There's no doubt that change is coming,said Bob Gray of Strategic Planning Group Inc.,which has been hired to help the county develop its strategic economic development plan. "The bottom line is in the next 20-25 years,everything you see in Pasco County is going to double,"Gray said."If we thought we saw an impact before,hold your hats. "The Pasco of the future will begin to mirror Pinellas and Hillsborough.2035 will not be your father's Pasco County,"Gray said. Pasco County is the state's 12th largest county.Its population grew from 36,000 in 1960 to about 471,000 now,Gray told a group of stakeholders assembled to help fashion the county's economic development plan.The group,representing a variety of interests Ñ including government,businesses,retail,banking,real estate,utilities,citizens and others Ñ met last week at Alice Hall Community Center in Zephyrhills. The group is meeting again this week to identify the county's strengths,weaknesses,opportunities and threats,as part of the process to create the economic development plan. The issue is not whether Pasco County will grow and get more jobs;it's whether it will grow the way it wants and get the kind of jobs that it wants,Gray said. The county has tracts that are large enough for development,said Richard Gehring,planning and growth management administrator for Pasco County.He envisions Dade City and Zephyrhills as being potential anchors in the economic development plan.He also noted the county has been divided into five market areas. Those are the east,west,north,south and central market areas,according to See GROWTH,page13 ZEPHYRHILLS/DADE CITYThe LAKERThe LAKER December 15,2010It's Not Wednesday Until You Read The Laker!

Manion)By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comChances are you've never heard of Ivan,a giraffe who teaches children the importance of self-acceptance. If Wesley Chapel author Linda Rossetti Brocato has it her way,though,copies of her book,"Ivan Becomes a Hero,"will one day be in the hands of children around the globe. "I want to get it wherever there is a child whose heart can be touched by Ivan," Brocato said. She thinks the book delivers an important message. "In this day and time,when there is so much bullying and unkindness,I want children to know that they are fearfully and wonderfully made,even if they're different," said Brocato,who based the book's central theme on Psalm 139,Verse 14. The verse reads in part:"I am wonderfully and fearfully made." "I want them (children) to see that theyChildren's book promotes the value of self-acceptanceare a treasure.It's not an accident the way they are made,"said Brocato,a former Sanders Memorial Elementary school teacher,who just completed a recent book tour in Mississippi. Brocato said she came up with the idea for her book 12 years ago,while visiting a wildlife refuge in California.When she saw a baby giraffe at the refuge,she jotted down the first words of her book onto a napkin. She didn't give the scribbled note any more thought until after being forced away from the classroom by multiple myeloma,a cancer of the bone marrow. Brocato went through chemotherapy and stem cell transplants in her battle against the disease at the Centers of Excellence in Little Rock,Ark. "I had a lot of time alone.I couldn't teach,"Brocato said.Nor could she continue the ministry that she had her husband, Frank,had done for more than two decades. During that solitary time,she said:"I heard in my heart,"But what about Ivan?"Story and photos by Tammy Sue Strubletstruble@cnewspubs.comThe local Zephyrhills AMVETS Post 550 found a bigger location and made the move to 4645 Airport Road in Zephyrhills.The Post had previously been located at an older, smaller facility at 4822 Gall Blvd.During a guided tour,Post Finance Officer Tony Baker proudly pointed out that, "Each division has an office." That's something the old facility was not able to accommodate:an office for the Auxiliary,Sons,Officers of the Post and an office for the Post Commander Jim Marshall.The members seemed extremely happy to have a larger dance floor and nice stage.The building,formerly the Zephyr Palms Event Center and before that the Senior Center on Airport Road,will also be convenient for a USO event sponsored by the AMVETS,slated for the same weekend as the Bivouac and Barracks at the Zephyrhills Airport.Bivouac and Barracks will be Feb.18-20.AMVETS Post 550 celebrates new home Dec. 11 marked the grand opening and Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting ceremony at the AMVETS of Zephyrhills'new location at 4645 Airport Road.

That's the message the Center for Living Wellness conveys to those arriving at the beige building at 19105 N.US 41 in Lutz. It's a unique place that offers fitness,yoga, nutrition and cooking classes Ñ and,which operates side by side with the SeVaMed Institute,where Dr.Shilpa P.Saxena combines elements of conventional and natural medicine in her integrative medicine practice to provide care that goes beyond pharmaceuticals. Saxena met Michele Drielick,executive director for the Center for Living Wellness, when both women were at a health and wellness expo. They discovered they were kindred spirits because both of them want to help people live healthier lives and neither felt the traditional approach to healthcare was working. When a doctor tells a patient that he or she should "stop eating white stuff and start exercising"it is unlikely that the advice will result in real change,Drielick said. But when people become knowledgeable about diet and nutrition and truly understand how what they eat and how much they move affects their overall health,they become advocates for their own good health,Drielick said. "We want our office to be targeted toward health,"Saxena said.The doctor said she went into medicine because she wanted to heal people.She soon learned,however,that she was spending much of her time scribbling prescriptions. But she now works in an environment that fosters an opportunity for patients to make real and lasting life changes. When Saxena gets a patient that has high blood pressure,she can prescribe medication to treat the condition,the doctor said. But she also encourages her patients to make lifestyle changes that can help them reclaim their good health and stop taking medications. That's where the Center for Living Wellness comes in.It helps people to become more knowledgeable about diet and nutrition and provides a supportive atmosphere to help them change their lifestyle. Some center members are Saxena's patients,but anyone is welcome to join the center,Drielick said. The center's monthly membership is $39 per month,without a monthly commitment, for unlimited exercise classes,including fitness and yoga classes.Those interested in joining can get a free week to preview the center's offerings. One advantage the center offers is small exercise classes,said Amber Swortzel,a fitness instructor at the center.That allows for more individualized instruction,she said."I've worked in fitness centers before where I've had 40 people in a class.When I have 40 people in a class,it's hard for me to see,"she said.She normally has about a halfdozen members in her Monday night class.The center also offers wellness lectures, cooking classes and a food coop that members can join to order organic fruits and vegetables. Cristin Becker,of Wesley Chapel,recently was at the center with her 4-year-old son, Liam and her 3-year-old daughter,Chloe,picking up the family's order of organic fruits and veggies. Becker had nothing but praise for the center.She described it as "a kind of community that offers a lot of support. "It helps to have like-minded people," Becker said."It helps to recommit you to your passion for vibrant living." Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is a challenge in a culture that doesn't make it easy to do,said Becker,who has attended wellness lectures and cooking classes at the center. "To change how you live can be tough," Becker said."It is hard.They never try to tell you otherwise because if they say otherwise, they're lying,"she said. Becker said she hopes her children will learn how to lead healthy lives because they're growing up in a household that values good health."They won't have the bad habits,"she said. Besides its current offerings,the center will be adding two initiatives in January. It is launching its Living Wellness University,which will provide online health/nutrition classes,Healthy Gourmand cooking classes,yoga and fitness classes to subscribers for $14.95 a month. It also is beginning its 90-Day Shred,which is $125 a month and it is $195 a month when it includes a personalized nutrition plan. "That's a very intense program.It will yield absolute results.You do it,it's done," Drielick said. Saxena said conventional medicine can be likened to trying to plug holes in a wall to prevent a flood. The real issue,Saxena said,is how to reduce the water on the other side of the wall. Saxena strives to help people understand complex medical topics so they can bring about real,meaningful life-long change, The doctor noted that three things have a profound effect on a person's general health: the way we eat,the way we move and the way we manage our stress. However,physicians are not trained in nutrition,exercise or stress management,Saxena said. The Center for Living Wellness strives to help people improve their overall health. "By improving diet and lifestyle,we have seen amazing results.Diet and exercise can make all of the difference,"Drielick said. People can either feed their disease or prevent their disease,Saxena said. "We are going to change the way you behave and live so that you have the chance to live well,"Saxena said.

Add Land O'Lakes resident Sam Edley to the list. The 17-year-old Sunlake High student earned the award Nov.20 with a less-thanconventional final project.Instead of the traditional ideas of building,cleaning or replacing something,Sam decided to collect thousands of dollars worth of supplies for U.S.troops serving overseas. "I got the idea when we did a service project with Mr.(Bob) Williams with Support Our Troops in Wesley Chapel," Sam said."We folded sheets that were sent to the troops because they didn't have any clean ones and he told us they're always looking for donations." Sam gave bags with flyers listing desired items to neighbors,relatives and members of his church,Our Lady of the Rosary in Land O'Lakes. He was able to collect $19,000 worth of goods for the troops and an additional $500 to help pay for the shipping. "I think it was a very good idea," said Dave Edley, Sam's father."I didn't realize what a lot of the troops overseas go without and this helps them be a little more comfortable." Dave's father and Sam's uncles on both sides of his family served in the armed forces. Sam started getting thank you letters from those who received his care packages a few weeks after they went out. Williams even gave him an American flag that was flown on a plane overseas that was sent back by some of the troops. "I wasn't expecting anything like that," Sam said."That was very special to get." The Edleys put the flag in a glass case displayed in their living room. Sam first joined scouting while in third grade.After graduating from Cub Scouts, the youth program of BSA,he joined Troop 33 in Land O'Lakes.In all,he earned 34 merit badges. "Scouting teaches you how to deal with many different kinds of people."Sam said."You also learn to check to make sure everyone did their job.You need to make sure the people who were supposed to by the food for a campout did or you're not going to eat for the weekend.It teaches you how to grow up." Maria Edley,Sam's mother,has also seen the benefits of the program."The biggest change was in that first year,"Maria said."They go from Cub Scouts where the parents do most of the planning to Boy Scouts where the boys run everything.It teaches them responsibility and each year he became more and more of a leader."

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 4 Your Community Guide to Food & Fun Dining & Entertainment Dining & Entertainment By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comWe all have turning points in our lives. For Linda Carr,one of hers came when she was in her young 20s and her mother asked her to fill in for her at the concession stand for Carr's brother's football team. Carr worked the French fry station and had a blast. "I absolutely loved it,"she said. She decided that was the kind of work she wanted to do. Carr went on to carve out a career in the fast-food industry,working for chains including Burger King,Checker's,Wendy's and Subway for a combined total of more than two decades. About six years ago,Carr had another turning point.She decided to go into business for herself. She decided she wanted to have a bagel restaurant,but she didn't know a darn thing about making bagels. So,she made a deal with some bagel shop owners:She'd work in their shops for free,if they would teach her the tricks of the trade. "People thought I was crazy,"she said. But she observed:"There is no bagel school." She spent time working at bagel shops in various locales,including Manhattan,New Port Richey,Ocala and Ft.Lauderdale. The bagel shop operators were generous with their knowledge,she said. Bagels are not all created equal,Carr said, adding there is no denying that New York bagels taste different than those made elsewhere. "The difference between New York bagels and here is the water,"Carr said,conceding she can't replicate that distinctive taste. However,she said,she strives to satisfy her customers by providing fresh bagels in a variety of flavors. "I have a lot of New Yorkers come in who say the bagels are good." She guarantees that the bagels sold in her Bagelicious & More shops are made that day. Whatever isn't sold that day is made into bagel chips or donated to the Helping Hands Pantry at Atonement Lutheran Church,29617 SR 54. Carla Haberland of the church's food pantry said Bagelicious provides hundreds of pounds of bagels each week in donations. Bagelicious & More has two locations now and is planning to add a third soon.The quick-service cafŽ at 30032 SR 54 in Wesley Chapel opened about two years ago and another location opened about six months ago in Zephyrhills at 6215 Abbot Station Drive. A third location will be set up at Moffitt Cancer Center at International Plaza,a new Moffitt location that is slated to open next summer. The cafŽ in Wesley Chapel has a simple dŽcor with chairs and tables,a flat-screen television and free Wi-Fi.The bagels and cream cheese spreads come in a wide assortment of flavors,but the menu also has a broad array of other items for breakfast,lunch or snacks. The restaurant serves Seattle's Best Coffee and offers all of the same specialty drinks as are available at Starbucks,Carr said,mentioning she has a contract with them. Popular lunch items include a chicken salad melt,Cuban sandwiches,soups and salads.Burgers can be ordered on a bun or a bagel,and there also are salads,soups and wraps. Bagelicious does catering,handles orders for sack lunches and prepares breakfast for Learning Gate Academy in Lutz. Kim Burns,who lives in Wesley Chapel,drops by the restaurant about three times a week. "It's close to my home and it's quality food,"she said.The turkey club is one of her favorite sandwiches,she said. She thinks the prices are fair and she likes the staff. "They're very friendly,"Burns said. Carr also thinks highly of the staff."I enjoy my staff.I enjoy teaching them." One of her employees is her daughter,28year-old Gayla Ramon,who works with her at the Wesley Chapel location. In one sense,this mother-daughter pair is carrying on a family tradition. "I lost my mother seven years ago,"Carr said.But,she noted,"When she (Carr's mother) was 16 or 17 she worked in a restaurant with her mother (Carr's grandmother)." After years of working for employers and helping them make reach their sales goals, Carr finds it deeply gratifying to be building a business of her own. The restaurant industry requires hard work and smart management,Carr said. Besides serving tasty food,it requires keeping tight control on costs for labor and supplies. Besides the innate challenges of the restaurant business,Carr said she's had an added challenge with SR 54 being torn up for road construction. When the project is finished,it will be fantastic,she said.Meanwhile,fewer customers are willing to pull into her business because it is harder to get out. Even so,Carr has a really good feeling about her future path in the bagel business. "I felt very guided as I did this project," she said."Everything fell into place." She is optimistic her business will continue to grow and thrive."Bagelicious will be well-known,"she predicted.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 5 By Samantha Taylor Pure Health Studios Many of us will be shopping this week for Christmas and a nice break from the hustle and bustle is to go see a movie,so that is exactly what I did.But what do you do when you are hungry and you walk in and smell all the aromas like buttery popcorn that seems to go with the movies? You better be prepared! I honestly never used to go to the movies without gorging on a large popcorn,chocolate covered peanuts and a large soda to the tune of 2,493 calories!I used to use it as an excuse to pig out until one day I saw a woman during the previews,stuffing her face full of popcorn and she probably would have been done before the movie even started Ñ just like me.I realized that was just an excuse to gorge and I needed to change my habits.I first learned how to walk into a theater and breathe through my mouth and not through my nose,so I didn't even smell the popcorn.I remember the first day I ever watched a movie without eating anything and it was like a miracle! Recently,I visited the Cobb Theatre in Wesley Chapel.I didn't have time to stop and grab some dinner before the movie (which is what I normally do so I am not tempted) so I found something to eat there.We all know there aren't the most nutritious things to eat at a movie theater.I didn't feel like eating popcorn because I eat air-popped popcorn all the time at home,so I got a pretzel.Yes "Miss Eat Whole Grain"wherever you can,but there was no option for whole grain,so you do the best with what you have,right? It was 583 calories and 14 grams of fat including the small side of nacho cheese sauce.I used some discipline,consuming only half of the cheese sauce.I sometimes use mustard but I didn't.I eat so healthy most of the time that you need to let yourself have stuff like that every once in a while.For you avid moviegoers who enjoy eating popcorn at the movies,let's look at the calories:• Small popcorn with NO added butter: 225 calories and 11 grams of fat (Best choice) • Small popcorn with added butter: 630 calories and 50 grams of fat! (Whoh momma) • Medium popcorn with NO added butter: 434 calories and 20 grams of fat (Not too bad) • Large popcorn with NO butter: 664 calories and 31 grams of fat (Pretty high) • Large popcorn with butter: 1,640 calories and 126 grams of fat (Yikes! Run away) The other challenge with popcorn is the salt,which can make you retain lots of water,hence,more weight gain.If you must have something to drink,grab a water or do I like I did and get the hot tea with honey.That helped get my mind off munching on food while watching the movie "Tangled"(which,by the way,was a great movie) HEALTHY ORDERING Talk about scary movies Ñ ordering at the theaterEating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we are heavier than ever before.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 7 By Jeannie Hayes and BJ JarvisPasco Cooperative Extension At the end of the year,life is very hectic running around decorating,shopping,visiting with friends.We all need to shorten our "to do"lists not just at the holidays,but also during the rest of the year.Here are a few things that can help make gardening a little simpler. Gardeners can't help wanting to add more garden gems to the landscape only to realize later there isn't enough time to establish them or keep up with weeding. Sometimes,plants may not even make it into the ground. It is time to step back and find some ways to make garden life easier.Here are a few simple and inexpensive ideas from Florida-Friendly Landscapingª to keep our landscapes looking good without further stress: ÑPlant groundcovers that generally require less fertilizing,mowing and maintenance once established. ÑAdd instant garden color by sinking an entire pot of colorful annuals into the ground.When plants start to fade,just pull out the inner pots and replace.When chrysanthemums fade,plant cheerful poinsettias. ÑMount rain gauges at eye level for easy reading.Mailboxes and fence posts are ideal. ÑAdd a rain barrel at your roof downspout to collect water for container plants when it is dry.No guttering? Just place an open barrel at the valley where two house sections meet.Rainwater usually gushes down there.Make sure the barrel has a screen on the top to prevent mosquitoes and a spigot at the bottom for easy access to water. ÑContainer plants in the sun dry out fast and may need daily watering.Cut the maintenance time by adding wetting agents,such as hydrogels,to your planting mix.Many major brands offer potting mixes with moisture holding gels. ÑStop the spread of invasive weeds by vacuuming the seeds with a dust buster or shop vacuum.These work well to collect desirable wildflower seeds too.Clean the unit well between uses. ÑStrips of old carpeting two-foot-wide make instant weed-free garden walkways. Turn carpeting over with the backing on the top for a more natural look. ÑPiles of utility mulch from the power company have many uses besides suppressing weeds and moderating soil temperatures.Create an instant berm that can become a holding area for container plants by sinking the pots.The containers will not blow over and require less watering.Use it to make compost on a big scale for your veggie garden.If you have children or grandchildren,running over mulch piles is a great way for children to run off some of that candy-driven energy. If you find yourself with a few extra minutes this holiday season and aren't sure what exactly to do in the garden,visit the University of Florida's gardening calendar. It is broken down by region and Pasco County tasks can be found in central Florida section at http://solutionsforyourlife.ufl.edu/lawn_and_garden/calendar. NATURE NOTES BJ Jarvis,horticulture agent,and Jeannie Hayes,Florida yards and neighborhoods assistant are a part of the Pasco Cooperative Extension,a free service of the University of Florida and Pasco County government.Jeannie and BJ can be reached at (352) 521-4288 or bjjarvis@ufl.edu. Groundcovers can eliminate the small spots that are often awkward to mow and maintain.

When the weather is projected to drop to 36 degrees or below,cold weather shelters are opened.Traditionally these shelters housed single adults,but with the difficult economic times they are now also seeing families with children.These shelters are operated by various faith based and nonprofit organizations in the community. There is currently no funding available to assist these organizations,but the need is still there and blankets are scarce.If anyone has blankets that they would be willing to donate they can drop them off at the United Way of Pasco County at 8040 Washington St.in Port Richey. United Way of Pasco County will ensure that all blankets are given to the cold weather shelters.The office is open from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.Monday through Friday.For more information,call Kristen King at (727) 835-2028 or e-mail kristen.king@uniredwaypasco.org. 1930 Land O'Lakes, FL33549 • 813.909.2800 Who says color doesn't call attention to your advertisement?It just did.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 13 That's when she realized that Ivan's story was divinely inspired,Brocato said. Besides being a potential source of encouragement for children,the book also helped Brocato as she coped with the dark days of her illness. "Ivan was my beacon of light,"she said. The book tells the tale of a little giraffe who is mocked and scorned and treated unkindly,but who ultimately succeeds in his journey of self-acceptance. The book was written for children ages 3 to 12,but has appeal for all ages,she said. "Everybody has been wounded and everyone has been rejected,so they can identify,"she said. Going from a mere idea for a story to a completed manuscript to a published book has been an adventure,Brocato said. She was shepherded through the process by Linda J.Hawkins,her publisher from Heart to Heart Christian Books,who served as a consultant and helped Brocato to find the book's illustrator,copy editorsBOOK,from page 1and designer.ÔShe mentored me throughout the process." "My biggest prayer was for the illustrator not to be ordinary,"Brocato said. The project's original illustrator quit,but then another highly respected illustrator became available to do the job."The timing was perfect,"Brocato said, praising the skill of the illustrator,Donna Brooks."She helped make Ivan come alive."Brocato decided to pay to publish the book rather than shopping it to various publishers.She said she wanted to retain control over the book's design and content,as well as to own the copyright.

Gray said the county doesn't have a workforce problem because it draws its workforce from the region.He also said its proximity to the University of South Florida is a huge benefit. However,John Hagen,president and CEO of the Pasco Economic Development Council,said being able to draw from the region isn't the only issue. "My concern is that we create high-GROWTH,from page 1 skilled jobs,but our residents don't get the jobs,"Hagen said.Efforts must be made to help Pasco's workforce develop the kinds of skills needed to secure those high-quality jobs,he said. Hagen is optimistic about Pasco's future, but said it will take hard work to achieve what the county wants. "We're well-positioned to take future growth here,"Hagen said.However,he added,the county can't merely sit back and wait."I think we're going to have to make that happen.If we're anti-growth,the growth will go elsewhere."Things are going to get shaken up and we want to be the shakers,not the shaken,"Hagen said. Gray said the county's economic development plan has to start with a vision: "What do we want?" It's also important to get community buyin regarding the importance of economic development,Gray said. "We have to get a buy-in because there is going to be a cost for implementing the plan,"Gray said.

Sanchez says the Africanized bees are very aggressive and that he has received more calls recently about them.The bees,sometimes called killer bees because of that aggressive behavior,first appeared in Florida in 2002,according to Jerry Hayes,chief of the apiary section of the Florida Department of Agriculture.They came from ships from Central and South America or Mexico through ports like the Port of Tampa."African bees were brought to Brazil in 1957 because the European honeybees that are used to pollinate most of the crops in this country didn't do well in that tropical environment,"Hayes said."What happened is the environmental blunder of the century.Some of the queen Africanized bees got out and they spread across all of South and Central America."When the African bees cross breed with European bees they became Africanized.It is virtually impossible to tell by sight if a bee is European or Africanized. James Ellis,assistant professors at the University of Florida's department of entomology,said if a European nest is disturbed,generally 10 bees repel the intruder.More than 1,000 Africanized ones will respond to the same attack. "The Africanized bees are actually smaller and have the same type of venom as the European ones,"Ellis said. "They are a problem because they attack in huge numbers and don't stop." Ellis said they are especially a problem because vibrations caused by things like tractors,lawnmowers and power equipment agitate them. "Once a bee stings something, they release a scent that causes the others to attack,"Ellis said."The best thing you can do is run and get inside a building because they will chase you." Ellis said someone being stung should cover their head and airways because the bees will try and get into the nose and down their throat to continue stinging.Diving in water does not work because the bees will wait until the person comes up for air. Hayes said the best thing to do to prevent hives from forming in their neighborhood is remove anything that could become their home. "Holes in sheds or other buildings should be sealed up,"Hayes said."The Africanized bees will make a home out of any little bit of protection,so removing anything they can turn into a hive is important." Hayes said any hive should be reported to a pest control company for eradication. Hayes added only one person has been killed by the Africanized bees in Florida,which happened two years ago in Kissimmee.Several dogs and small farm animals have also been killed along with a 900-pound horse in Hendry Nio Sanchez of Wesley Chapel wears a bee suit to perform pest control on very aggressive Africanized bees camped out in a shed's roof north of Zephyrhills.

"I sometimes have people ask why we should get rid of them and I tell them it's a public safety issue,"Hayes said."There aren't any benefits of having the Africanized bees because our 275,000 colonies of European bees controlled by beekeepers can pollinate all of our crops." Hayes said Florida crops that rely on bees for pollination include strawberries,blueberries,avocadoes and watermelons to name a few. In the early period of the spreading,the Africanized bees'new range increased by 200-300 miles a year.Hayes said they first reached Texas in 1990.They have since colonized all the Southwestern United States along with Florida. Hayes said Africanized bees reproduce much faster than European bees.Because of that,Africanized bees form new colonies,or swarms,about 15-16 times a year to a European group's one to two."The Africanized bees come from a place with no winter,so instead of producing a lot of honey they make more bees," Hayes said. The spread of the Africanized variety happened right around the time European bees started to die out in the wild because a parasitic mite,the varroa mite,was introduced to North America.The mites affect Africanized bees as well,but Hayes said they have a defensive mechanism to reduce its spread.Instead of breaking off and forming two colonies,when a group is infected,only the clean bees get the signal to swarm."The wild population of European honeybees are basically all gone in this country," Hayes said."The Africanized bees moved into the void left after the mites wiped out the wild European bees.Any ones left were forced out by the Africanized bees.The only ones left are those of beekeepers." Hayes emphasized the point that all bees are not bad and without beekeepers, Florida's many crops would not grow.He said people should encourage and welcome beekeepers because their European bees do much more good than harm.

For more information,call (813) 929-1220.Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA few weeks ago it was uncertain who would lead the Wesley Chapel High girls basketball team, but new coach Shawn Brown has brought the team together despite having no summer workouts or preseason. "We didn't know what was going on with the program,"said senior Hannah Noble."We were lucky to get such a good coach so late in the game." The Wildcats (5-4) reached back-to-back regional finals the last two seasons with Karim Nohra as coach,but he was not retained after the season.He is currently coaching at Academy at the Lakes. Stepping in for Nohra is Brown,who is the sports and camp director at the East Pasco Family YMCA.He has also coached the Orlando Magic's youth basketball camps since 2005,but this is his first head coaching position in high school. "It's pressure right off the bat,"Brown said of taking over a successful program. "The girls expect a lot and want to continue to win.Part of the challenge was a lot of girls transferred to other schools.We basically have just one player who played in significant game action last year in Hannah.I commend her for staying her senior year when others left." For Noble,the choice to stay was easy. "This is my school and I thought it would be like me betraying my school to go somewhere else,"Noble said."I've grown up here and played middle school basketball at Weightman (Middle),so this is the only place I wanted to play my senior year." Brown said Noble will be leaned on a lot this year. "She has to be our leading scorer every night for us to be successful,"Brown said. "That's a lot of pressure,but then she also has to be our leader as well because she's the only one with any experience.She's already shown she's able to do both." Noble has been a point guard for most of her playing career,but has moved to shooting guard this season to free her up to score.Now running the point for the Wildcats is Tiffany Echevarria,a sophomore. She has played point guard since the fifth grade and learned a lot from watching Noble play last season. "When I watched her last year calling the plays I wanted to be like her,"Echevarria said."I've learned so much from her." It was a little daunting running the offense,but a talk with Noble before the season let Echevarria know she could do it. "She told me we were in this together," Echevarria said."It made me feel like I wasn't alone in the backcourt.I know we can rely on each other." The Wildcats will be a guard-oriented team because they do not have a lot of height.The tallest player is 5-foot-11 junior center Brittany Byrd,who almost did not play this season. "I'd decided I didn't want to play to focus on volleyball,but I went to a game at the start of the season,"Byrd said."I was sitting in the bleachers watching them play and it just hit me that I should be playing with them." At first glance Byrd does not seem like the kind of player who would like the rough and tumble action near the net,but when asked about playing the position her eyes lit up. "I love playing down in the post,"Byrd said."I'm not the kind of girl who likes playing guard and shooting from on the perimeter.I love being down there and fighting for rebounds and blocking shots.It's why I love basketball." Down by the net with Byrd is sophomore forward Sara Hordges.She missed the end of last season with a slight tear to her ACL,but she is nearly 100 percent. "Really it's just trusting my knee," Hordges said."It's basically healthy and coach just said I have to believe I can stop and change directions without having a problem." Hordges has been working with Brown to get her knee strong again and she believes his training is the reason she has been able to return to the court so fast. Another player who enjoys Brown's presences is Sapharianece Reynolds.She said she believes in staying positive even when things are not going her way. "If I put my head down because I've missed some shots,then I'm not thinking about the game,"Reynolds said."É I learned that from my mom.I always try and keep the rest of the team positive even when we're down and so does coach.He has that same belief in staying positive."

(Photo by Tammy Sue Struble)By Derek Highley Golf Columnist We’re well into December and I thought I’d pass along a drill with ties to the holiday season, at least in name anyway. I call this drill the Christmas tree drill and it is a great practice exercise for anyone struggling with direction control. It is very difficult to go from hitting the ball crooked to hitting the ball straight by going to the practice range and trying to hit straight balls. The best path to a straighter ball flight is actually to hit balls off line on purpose. This works well for two reasons, the first being by intentionally hitting shots left or right you begin to focus in on controlling the clubface. Secondly, this drill provides some parameters to work off of as you begin to straighten your shot. You can do this drill with any club in your bag, but I suggest starting with a midiron. Be sure to work your way up through your bag to the driver. To start, pick a target in the middle of the range and set up as if you are going to hit straight shots. Now hit your first three balls so they hook and land left of the target. The primary goal is to make sure your ball is turning left. It really doesn’t matter at this point how far left, in fact for the first few the farther left the better. After you successfully hit three shots in a row to the left, hit the next three balls so they turn in the opposite direction. The second phase of the drill is where the Christmas tree pattern takes shape. On the second go round we are going to limit how far left and right the ball can turn. What you need to do is continue to set up to the middle target, but now pick two other targets one about 30 yards to the left of center and the other 30 yards right of center. With your next three balls the goal again is to have the ball turn left, but this time it cannot go farther left then your secondary target. Same again on the right side. Repeat a third time, moving your left and right secondary targets in 10 yards. Hit three shots turning left and three turning right, the goal being to land the ball inside your target parameters. Repeat a fourth time, moving the targets in another 10 yards, now your margin of error has become 10 yards left or right of your target.You have created a Christmas tree effect by starting with a wide base and narrowing as you go.This is a great drill to develop or regain clubface control. By starting off with a wide target you allow yourself to really overdo opening and closing the clubface, a sensation you need to feel in order to give you a good starting point to back off from. Slowly narrowing your target as you progress through the drill allows the feel of controlling the clubface to sink in and leads to much more accurate shots.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 18 Title may bring more successBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comEach year Kim Whitney sets out to win a volleyball national title,but this season that goal seemed a little more likely."When we were coming up with our goals a couple months ago everyone said win a national championship,"said Whitney,who has been Pasco-Hernando Community College's (PHCC) coach for seven years."We usually have a couple players say that,but this year they all said it.I knew we were talented, but that's when I knew we had a real chance because they were focused on that goal." The Conquistadors (36-7) won the National Junior College Athletics Association (NJCAA) Division II national championship in Wisconsin Nov.20 in five sets against the Kansas-based Johnson County Community College (JCCC).PHCC is the first Florida team to win the title Division II title,the first athletic championship of any kind for the school.The match was a close one at 26-24,1325,25-21,23-25,15-12.JCCC actually scored more points in the contest with 107 to PHCC's 102.Middle blocker Marlie Temple scored the winning point on a block. "When I saw that ball hit the court it was the best feeling,"Temple said."You think about winning a national title,but I didn't think about being the one who put down that winning point." Whitney said the squad had lost the only other two five-set matches this season.She said the players really started focusing on finishing out long matches and actually worked on five-set and first to 15 drills in the week of practice leading up to the championship tournament.The Conquistadors were well represented on the AllTournament Team,with Outside hitter Desiree Ates and Middle hitter Tazra Pitts earning spots.Team captain Ashley Seal was the tournament's MVP and Whitney was named Coach of the Tournament."It was a lot of hard work by everyone,"said Seal."As the setter you have to work with everyone to set up a kill,so I know it takes everyone to win.The MVP should actually go to everyone on the team." PHCC is a junior college with players graduating after two years,which makes it difficult for a team to establish itself on the national stage.Whitney thinks the national championship will help the program maintain its momentum. "When we talk with kids about coming here we've told them about what we're building,but now we can tell them about the championship we've won,"Whitney said."I think that will help us get more good players to come to PHCC and hopefully that means more championships." Whitney and the program have already been able to reach outside central Florida for recruits.Of the 14 players on the roster, five are from out of state including three from Canada. "I wanted to play in the United States against the best players,"said Temple,who is from British Columbia,Canada."When coach Whitney told me they wanted me to come to PHCC I knew I wanted to go there. É It's a little weird to have three players from Canada on the same Florida team,but we play a lot more volleyball in Canada."Along with winning,the Conquistadors helped raise awareness about breast cancer and raised money to research cures for the disease.Players sold pink shirts during October,which is Breast Cancer Awareness Month,and accepted donations for the cause."They understand there are things more important than volleyball and wanted to be thought of as more than just a volleyball team,"Whitney said."We've done this in the past and I'm sure we'll do it again next year. It fits in with the kind of young ladies here and the type of program we want to have in the future."Conquistadors bring home national championshipSPORTS The PHCC volleyball team won the National Junior College Athletics Association Division II championship.

People ran into our gift wrap area daily excited to enter the contest,” said Leah Kottke of Dillard’s Gift Wrap Department. Store Manager Kathy Appleby reported more than 100 people participated in the contest. Dillard’s Manager Kathy Appleby, far right, hosted winners of The Laker/Lutz News shopping spree contest. Winners, from left, were Melissa Mathias, Debbie Mathias, Meghan Mathias and Darlene Bamberger. Mathias family wins Dillard’s shopping spreeA Laker/Lutz News staff reportTake Charge America offers these tips on spotting fraudulent charities, travel rip-offs and other seasonal scams:  Fake charities soliciting donations over the telephone, through e-mail or by direct mail. To avoid these rip-offs, only donate to charities you know and trust. If a new charity piques your interest, be sure to verify its existence on Charity Navigator or the BBB Wise Giving Alliance. If you can’t locate the charity in question, use the online search tools to find a different charity with a similar mission.  Fraudulent travel deals. Be sure to research your options and only purchase travel packages from reputable companies you know and trust. Fake travel sites may offer amazing deals on vacation rentals or hotels to lure you into providing personal information that can be used to steal your identity or tap your bank account. This practice is known as “phishing.” Fake contest alerts. Many scammers use telemarketing to tempt consumers with prizes from fake contests. Be very wary if you get a call about winning a big-ticket item such as a luxury vacation. Do not put down a deposit or provide the caller with any personal data. The call probably is a scam, especially if you do not recall entering a contest. Similar tactics are used by scammers to solicit personal information through cell phone text messages asking the recipient to call a toll-free number. This is referred to as “smishing.” Be sure to warn children and senior citizens who may not be phone savvy and may be more susceptible to these kinds of scams.Tips on avoiding holiday scams Get all your favorite local news stories onlinewww.cnewspubs.comThe Laker / Lutz News Free PapersWorking For Youis free community paper is a vital force in our community.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / WESLEY CHAPEL / ZEPHYRHILLS December 15, 2010 26 A Laker staff reportResidents living in east and central Pasco County and northern Hillsborough County may not experience the winters that people in northern states go through, but there are still ways to minimize the amount of chill that gets into your home — and the amount of heat that gets out. Here are some tips provided by the National Association of the Remodeling Industry to help your homes from winter and to prevent minor problems from turning into major ones.Winter maintenance Inspect your home for cracks or holes in outside walls and foundations. Use caulking to protect water pipes and make sure that skylights and other roof openings have proper weather stripping to prevent cold from seeping in.  Check water pipes for cracks and leaks and have them repaired immediately. Even here, pipes can freeze if temperatures dip low enough.  Wrap exposed pipes with heating tape to keep them from freezing.  Keep your thermostat at a minimum of 65 degrees to prevent your pipes from freezing.  Install an emergency pressure release valve in your plumbing system as an added protection against freezing pipes. The valve helps lessens pressure caused by freezing pipes and reduces the chance of pipes bursting.  Learn how to shut the water off and know where your pipes are located. If your pipes free, the faster you can shut off the water or direct the plumber to the problem, the better chance you have to prevent pipes from bursting.  Make sure your attics, basements and crawl spaces are adequately insulated and well-ventilated. Insulation helps prevent pipes from freezing and helps reduce heating costs.  Be sure your smoke and fire alarms are working properly and that your heating system is serviced each year. Residential fires increase during the winter, so be sure to protect your family.Tips for keeping the heat in Decrease drafts in your home by checking windows and doors for air leaks and sealing them with caulk or weather stripping.  Install storm windows or plastic sheeting over single-pane windows. If you are considering a replacement, consider specially coated double-paned windows designed to reflect heat back into the room.  Clean or replace the air filter to maximize the efficiency of the heating system.  Clean out ducts, warm-air registers, baseboard heaters and radiators, too.  Insulate ducts running through attics, crawl spaces and garages. Check for separation, holes and leaks and seal them.  Seal the fireplace by keeping dampers closed when the fireplace is not in use. Or install glass doors to fit inside the opening when burning out the fire. Be sure to check your home warranty to see if any of these repairs are covered. If a repair requires a skill beyond your capability, you may want to hire a professional remodeling contractor. Be sure to check that the contractor is licensed and insured, and inquire with your local government about any complaints that may be pending against any contractor you are considering.Protecting pipesHere are some more tips from Hillsborough County’s Water Resource Division for protecting your water pipelines from bursting.  Protect pipes, especially if they are exposed or the house or building insulation is insufficient. Look for where the water service enters the structure, and use an old blanket or material available from a home improvement store to insulate exposed piping.  Homes and buildings with crawl spaces are particularly susceptible to wind and freezing temperatures, so outdoor pipes should be protected from the elements.  Secure water meter covers so the meter and surrounding pipes are not exposed.  Insulate or cover exposed backflow prevention devices on fire lines and irrigation systems.  Disconnect any outside water hoses from spigots, as water trapped inside can freeze and crack the hose. If piping does freeze, be patient. It doesn’t mean your water service has been turned off. Wait a few hours for temperatures to warm and the pipes to thaw. Never use an open flame to thaw out a pipe. If a pipe does burst, turn off the water supply by using the home’s shut-off valve, typically located under a sink or just outside the structure.How to stay safe when the mercury drops HOMES FOR SALE2.3 ACRES,mostly wooded, has a 24x46 3/2 mobile home only 3 yrs old.

CnewsPubs.com / 813-909-2800 THE LAKER / WESLEYCHAPEL/ ZEPHYRHILLS December 15,2010 27 Video killed the radio star Video killed the radio star In my mind and in my car We can't rewind, we've gone too far.ÐThe BugglesBy Randall GranthamCommunity ColumnistI've been an outspoken advocate of videotaping all police/citizen encounters for a long time now.For better or for worse, it provides an unbiased version of the incident.And with digital technology and cutting-edge forensics now available to the government,more and more police and their cars are equipped with more and better video equipment. Some have cameras that are running all the time and capture individual stops from start to finish and from several different vantage points.They often show date, time,direction of travel and even GPS pinpointed location.While law enforcement agencies are all in favor of this technology when it helps their case,some seem to have a different point of view when it is them shown on film doing something that is not quite SOP.Sometimes it's their own camera that captures a less-than-flattering interaction between the officers and the public.Do you remember the incident in Miami where the cops'camera shows them concocting a story about how a woman's cat jumped out of her car window causing him to hit her as she swerved in front of him,when actually he had rear-ended her simply because he was not paying attention? Years ago,the local sheriff's office videotaped a "dynamic entry"by the SWAT team to execute a search warrant in a drug case.That was the first,last and only time they did that.Once I introduced that as evidence,the judge didn't appreciate the discrepancies between it and the way the cops had testified the raid went down and threw out all the evidence. Then there were the Polk County cops caught on tape playing Wii at the their drug suspect's home on his home surveillance camerasAnd now,there are videos everywhere.They're all throughout every major retail outlet and even scan the parking areas at Walmart,Busch Gardens and other spots.They're at ATMs and gas stations.And most threatening of all,they're in citizens'hands on nearly every cell phone sold today.It may surprise you,but cops do not like being the subject of video taping when they are confronting a member of the public.They will actually arrest you for trying to film them in action.Cops in Maryland recently raided a home to seize evidence and arrest a man for violating the state's wiretapping statute.His crime was posting on YouTube a helmet-cam recording of his traffic stop where the unmarked officer drew down on him for no apparent reason.He faces up to 16 years in prison because he had the audio recording with the video.Another woman in that state was recently arrested for filming police responding to a noise complaint in her apartment complex.According to her arrest report,she "confessed"to recording the encounter for the purpose of showing cops harassing people.She also recorded audio and video.Now,some states have actually criminalized filming police in action.In Florida it is a crime to record audio of people who don't consent to be recorded,but there's no law on the books prohibiting a video-only recording of events taking place in public.So,usually the charge is trumped up to obstructing an investigation,or disorderly conduct, or,in one case where the officer blocked the camera,battery on a law enforcement officer.Last year a model was arrested in Boynton Beach for videotaping an encounter between her teenage son and police in a movie theater.Prosecutors had the good sense not to file charges,but the ACLU is suing the police department for the arrest. The president of the national Fraternal Order of Police defends these arrests,saying that filming cops on duty "can intimidate officers from doing their job." Of course he also says that cops don't lie. I'm not saying cops lie.All I'm saying is that a video recording of something is more reliable and unbiased than having one or more parties give their version of what happened.There are bound to be omissions,exaggerations and personal spin there that would not be present with a video. What's good for the goose should be good for the gander and people,whether they be witnesses or participants,shouldn't be intimidated or threatened out of preserving that kind of evidence.And criminalizing this type of thing just reminds me too much of those news feeds you see from Communist China or the like.It's just un-American!
