Zephyrhills/Dade City Edition



Spina announces plans to leave City Manager post


By Tammy Sue Struble
tstruble@cnewspubs.com

Zephyrhills City Manager Steve Spina is
planning to retire, he announced last week.
Spina, city manager since 1996, stated
that it was time for a change and he intend-
ed to give the city plenty of time - about
four to six months - to find his replace-
ment.
In an interview, retired Councilman
Clyde Bracknell said he had a very good ex-
perience working with Spina. Each of them
had their own opinion, would look at an


issue from each side and then come up with
a solution. Bracknell retired from the city
council nearly two years ago after serving a
record 29 years.
"In the last 15 years,he has really grown
into the position,' Bracknell explained about
Spina's tenure."He has had his share of ups
and downs, but, he has always come out of
it OK. Since he started, the city has pro-
gressed forward.The city is going to lose a
good leader.The city has really shot up and
booming. He has moved the city forward.
"I hope he enjoys his next endeavor,"
Bracknell added.


"It probably will be
good for the city ... to
have new eyes looking
at things. "-St Spina


Spina explained in a recent phone inter-
view that the decision to retire was a
personal one."I thought about it over the
holidays. It seems like a good time to start
something new. I'm just ready to do some-


thing different. It probably will be good for
the city, as well, to have new eyes looking at
things."
Spina added that he is hoping to finish
the doctorate program he is working on in
May or August.Then, maybe he will do some
teaching.
"It's been a great job. I've enjoyed the op-
portunity to work in Zephyrhills," he added.
"We'll still be around! We still live here."
Liz Geiger, another retired council veter-
an, said the city was blcc, I to have him as
city manager for so long.You can see his

house making rocking chairs, wishing wells and other wooden furniture. (Photo by B.C. Manion)


Simple beginning leads to


business with staying power


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

It all began with a rocking chair.
Millie Cornell wanted to buy a rocking
chair for her granddaughter to carry on a
tradition she'd begun with her oldest grand-
son.
She found one at a store that she thought
would be perfect, but as she carried it to the
counter to pay for it, it began to fall apart.
She rejected that chair and went home
and told her husband Duke (whose given
name is George) that she wouldn't be able
to get a chair for Sarah.
Duke told Millie not to worry. He said
he'd see if he could make their granddaugh-
ter a rocking chair.
So began Grandpa's Wee Rockers
Woodcraftsman, a business that continues to
this day at 38133 FifthAve. in Zephyrhills.
Duke spends the better part of most days
working in the open-air shop out behind
their house, a highly visible location near
Zephyrhills.


A sign in front of the shop welcomes
passersby: "Come See What I Saw," it pro-
claims.
Drop by and you'll likely hear the
whirring sound of a drill, as Duke uses
2.5-inch deck screws to bind together
parts of a bench. The quick and sure
movements of his hands and sawdust on
the floor are evidence of a man at work.
Visitors can check out child-sized rock-
ing chairs, wishing wells,Adirondack chairs,
a bench swing, picnic tables and single, dou-
ble and triple gliders on display on the lawn
and driveway at the couple's house.
At one point, Duke set up at a flea mar-
ket, but there was too much downtime in
that venture for his tastes, he said.
At another point, he carted chairs to the
northern states because he'd taken one up
at someone's request and found there was a
demand for them there.
Now, he's content to stay at home work-
ing in his shop.
The idea of retiring is not even a remote

Reagan Club gathers in Dade City


ByTammy Sue Struble
tstruble@cnewspubs.com

The newly revived Ronald Reagan
Republican Club met Jan. 12 in Dade City.
Attendees were welcomed and advised
that the scheduled guest speaker, Secretary
of State Kurt Browning, would not be at the
meeting because he had to make a trip to
Tallahassee.
Browning had served as secretary of
state in the previous administration, but re-
tired in April 2010. New Gov. Rick Scott
asked Browning to serve as Florida's secre-
tary of state again.


Steve Van Gorden, presiding over the
Reagan Club meeting, stated that he wasn't
surprised Scott also chose Browning for the
secretary of state position as he seemed to
perform his job well and was well liked.
Van Gorden spoke to the group of 16
and explained that there was a lot that need-
ed to be done, in particular, volunteers
would be needed as the 2012 Republican
National Convention is set for Tampa.
The next meeting is scheduled for March
8 at 6 p.m. at Beef O'Brady's in Dade City.

Interstate widening moves north

Last stretch of 1-275 to get six lanes


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Commuting between Pasco and
Hillsborough counties will get a little easier
by the fall of 2012.
That is when the 5.7 miles of 1-275 be-
tween Bearss Avenue to 1-75 will grow from
four to six lanes. Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) Public Information
Officer John McShaffrey said the project is
needed to help with traffic flow of 52,000
vehicles that move through the area daily.
"The interstate is being widened accord-
ing to the master plan for the interstate
system in the Tampa Bay area, which calls
for at least three lanes in each direction to
reduce congestion and improve safety,"
McShaffrey said."Finishing this section will
complete 1-275 widening north of down-
town and will also work in conjunction
with the coming widening of 1-75."
1-275 was widened to six lanes in the
south from around Busch Boulevard to
Bearss in 2003. Once finished, the interstate
will be at least six lanes all the way into
Pinellas County.
There will be periodic lane closures, but
all starting no earlier than 9:30 p.m. and
ending by 6:30 a.m.The project is federally
funded and comes at a $20.5 million price
tag. It is being completed by Prince
Contracting, which will also be adding de-
vices to help monitor traffic flow including
five cameras and 20 vehicle detectors.
"These are tools to help the traffic man-
agers determine the amount and speed of
traffic, identify problems such as accidents,
breakdowns, items in the roadway, and
react accordingly," McShaffrey said."For ex-
ample, if they notice a slowdown in
speeds, they can look on the cameras and
spot the trouble. If there is a motorist
need for assistance, police, fire and/or
wreckers may be dispatched to assist and
get traffic moving back to speed as quickly
as possible."
There will also be an electric sign to let
drivers know what is happening on the
road ahead, allowing motorists to make de-
cisions about their travel route.
Just north of the widening project is the


job to expand and resurface 1-75 just north
of the split with 1-275 and improve the inter-
change at SR 56.
The work is taking 1-75 to six lanes on
the northbound side from I-275 interchange
and exit ramp at SR 56 while resurfacing ex-
isting road on the stretch of 2.3 miles.
Additionally, a new exit ramp to SR 56
from 1-275 is being built.This will eliminate
drivers having to shift across several lanes of
traffic after the interstates come together
heading north.
The $29.9 million FDOT project began
in the fall of 2009 and is being built by
SEMA Construction.The job is scheduled
to be finished in the summer of 2012, but
McShaffrey said the job is well ahead of
that pace.
"It is likely this project will finish around
eight months ahead of schedule,"
McShaffrey said.
The 1-275 work is not affected by a re-
cent hold placed on contracts throughout
the state by new Gov. Rick Scott, McShaffrey
said.
Both the above jobs are preparing 1-75
for a future widening from SR 56 to SR 54 to
six lanes.That project is not yet funded, but
FDOT spokeswoman Kris Carson said it will
happen.
Another FDOT job is building new rest
areas on 1-75 between SR 56 and SR 54 in
Wesley Chapel at mile marker 278. It is
being done by Cone and Graham at a cost
of $25.1 million.
The two existing stops on the east and
west side of the interstate were torn down
and are currently being rebuilt. The job
began last July and is slightly ahead of sched-
ule of being finished next spring.
The rest areas should reopen to the pub-
lic by late 2011 (or) early 2012," McShaffrey
said.
The new stops - designed to last for at
least 30 years - will include additional
truck parking and more space for rest-
rooms. McShaffrey said the department
regrets having to close the stops, but says it
will be better for people using the interstate
once done.

Habitat Holiday Hope event a success


Habitat for Humanity of East & Central
Pasco's Holiday Hope event collected al-
most $4,000 during two hours in
December, more than half coming from
Land O' Lakes High senior Matt Mooney
John Finnerty, the Habitat chapter's exec-
utive director, accepted a donation of


Trinity Carrillo sharing his story of how Habitat
has helped his family at the holiday event.


$2,170.85 from Mooney. The money was
raised by recycling aluminum cans.
Mooney has set a goal to recycle enough
aluminum cans to build a house for a needy
family through Habitat. Mooney became in-
volved with the organization after a house
was dedicated to a friend on his baseball
team while in eighth grade. He has collected
more than 1 million cans and is about a
third of the way to his goal.
Also at the event was Trinity Carrillo, a
10-year-old student at Lacoochee
Elementary and part of a family in the
Habitat program. Carrillo and his mother are
currently building their own home and the
houses of others with the local organiza-
tion. He spoke of his family's struggles to
find affordable, decent housing. He also
thanked those who have helped work on
their home.

SR 54 widening causing problems for drivers, troops


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

When Pasco County started the widen-
ing of SR 54 in Wesley Chapel it was
promised to pave the way for a more con-
nected region, but a pair of glitches have
arisen near Boyette Road.
Since the traffic pattern changed last
December, the 10 or more semi trucks that
come by the Wesley Chapel Business Center
each week cannot leave without turning
across both lanes of traffic and the blocked
off portion to the south. Support The Troops
Inc., which sends supplies to U.S. troops
serving abroad, is located in that complex.
"It's a big mess," said Bob Williams,
Support The Troops founder."The trucks just
can't make that turn. If you've got a truck
worth more than $100,000, you're not going
to risk it getting damaged to drop off dona-
tions to us. I've already seen problems with
donations because of the turning."
Williams shares the building with two
companies owned by his sons.
Pasco chief engineer James Widman said
the county has already increased the turning
radius out of the center from 35 to 50 feet.
"Trucks should be able to turn in that
amount of space,"Widman said.
Williams' complaint with the project does
not end with the turning radius. He also
claims the county promised him a wall

would be built between SR 54 and the cen-
ter to protect it if someone hits the building.
Currently, only five feet and a small guardrail
separate the structure from the thousands of
vehicles that drive by every day.
"We've just stopped using our corner of-
fice near the road because we know it's just
a matter of time before someone crashes
into us, especially when the other lanes
open and more people drive though,"
Williams said. "It's sad that you reach an
agreement in good faith with someone and
they back out."
Williams said it was a verbal agreement.
Widman said no promise was ever made. He
said he met withWilliams, who lives in Lutz,
and agreed to present the idea of building a di-
viding wall to the county lawyer. In the end he
says it was decided they would help Williams
build the barrier, but would not pay for it.
"We compensated Mr.Williams when we
bought the land to do the project,"Widman
said."The amount we gave him was not only
for the land, but also to account for anything,
such as a wall, that he would need to build."
The amount Williams received was un-
available from the county, which paid $74.2
million total to acquire right-of-way for the
project.
Widman, who emphasized he believes
Williams is a good man, said such a dividing
wall would cost $40,000 to $60,000.
"They'll eventually do something, but
Pasco County likes to
.: wait until two or
- - three people get
killed before they do
anything," Williams
said."Everybody is in-
censed by this. You
Can't even get to the
post office without
g nearly getting into an
accident."

lem, placing a steel overseas shipping contain-
er filled with 100,000 pounds of anything he
could find next to his building on his property.
"It will prevent anyone from driving
through our building and hopefully will get the
county to move a little faster,"Williams said.
The Wesley Chapel Post Office is on
Boyette just west of the business center.
Problems there began when the intersec-
tion of Boyette and SR 54 lost its traffic
signal when the lanes shifted.
Megan Hill nearly got into an accident
turning onto Boyette to mail a Christmas
package. She lives east of the post office and
the new configuration of SR 54 made it diffi-
cult for her to see when to turn.
"You're right up against the buildings
and then the turn is just past them," Hill said.
"I hit the brakes to turn right and the per-
son behind me had to go into the other lane
of traffic to not hit me. I've lived here for 10
years, but I almost missed that turn I've
made about 100 times."
Widman said he has suggested putting
signs up to alert drivers the turn for the post
office is near.


"The other problem is we have the
wrong street name on the new traffic sig-
nal," Widman said. "That new road that
comes through east of Boyette is called
Vandine Road. For some reason the Boyette
sign was put on top of the new light."
That new road comes south where
Boyette begins its S-curve. It is named after a
family that owned the land the county
bought to build the street.Widman said it is
designed to take traffic off Boyette, which is
why it received the signal that Boyette lost.
"We had to remove the light because the
distance was too close to have two as part
of the access management plan for the
road,"Widman said."It has to meet state re-
quirements.Traffic on Boyette should taper
off as people get used to using Vandine
Road instead.We understand change is diffi-
cult and we aren't perfect.We'll do what we
can to put the right signage out for drivers."
Widman added the project to widen SR
54 to six lanes from 1-75 to Curley Road is
well ahead of schedule and he thinks it
should be done before next March as was
originally planned.

Big changes lead to smaller Terri Beach


Lutz resident's weight
loss success featured
in Shape magazine

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Lutz resident Terri Beach's day begins at
5:15 a.m. when her alarm goes off.Within 30
minutes she is at Lifestyles Family Fitness near
Collier Parkway.
She has been hitting the gym six days a
week for about an hour and a half for the last
two years.ThenTerri,who is 5-foot-4 and 135
pounds, heads home to get ready for her job
as an instructional assistant at Denham Oaks
Elementary, which includes making a healthy
and balanced breakfast and lunch for later in
the day.
Rewind two years and Terri, 50, looked
and acted very differently. She would make it
to the gym once every couple of weeks and
didn't worry much about what she ate.
"It was really easy to tell myself I needed
the extra sleep and once I started telling my-
self that, it was easier and easier to skip the
gym;'Terri said.
That was when she was 50 pounds heav-
ier, about the weight of six gallon jugs of
water - or the average 6 year old.
"I'd always been in pretty good shape until
about four years ago;'Terri said."My husband
(Bryan) and I went on a cruise that I got in
good shape for.Then let myself go."
Terri's weight had fluctuated throughout
her life, which she attributes to going on fad
diets that cut out whole food groups.
"Weight would come off really fast, but
would go right back on;'Terri said."Now I
make sure to eat from all the food groups in
every meal.The other thing that is really im-
portant is serving size. Not so much with fruit
and vegetables, but for meat and grain I meas-
ure things."


What made Terri change to a healthier
lifestyle was seeing her father, 74-year-old
John Vlakney, drop 30 pounds. She was im-
pressed not only by his weight loss, but also
what it did for his health.
"He did it because he had heart problems
and diabetes,"Terri said."That really made a
difference on me because I've never really
had a major health problem and I want to
keep it that way."
She did a lot of research and trial and error
to figure out what diet and exercise plan
worked for her. Besides a better diet, she gets
in about 30 minutes on a treadmill or ellipti-
cal machine along with 30-40 minutes of
weight training and 10-20 minutes of warm-
ing up and stretching. She also takes yoga, tai
chi and Pilates and kickboxing classes.
"I try and change things up as much as
possible,"Terri said."Sometimes it's weights
then cardio, sometimes it's cardio then
weights. I do that because I get bored easily."
It took Terri about eight months to lose
the 50 pounds, which she has kept off for
more than a year. Her efforts were recognized
in a recent edition of Shape magazine with
five other women from across the country.
"I feel so much better now,"Terri said."My
energy is higher.The psychological benefits
are just a big as the physical ones."
Bryan has been very impressed with
Terri's dedication.
"She is very focused;' said Bryan, who has
been married to Terri for 29 years."She goes
basically every day and she is upset if she
misses it. It's been a very positive kind of ad-
diction for her. It's beyond what I could do."
Terri is a mother of three - John, 27;
Michael, 24; and Greg, 20. Greg is a senior ex-
ercise science major at Florida State
University (FSU) and helped Terri come up
with her training regimen.
"I'm very proud of her," Greg said. "It's
helped me want to do better as a student to
help her with what I learn."
Terri and Greg participated in a 5K (five

kilometers, or 3.1 miles) run at FSU last
October, the first race of that length for both.
The pair stuck together and crossed the finish
line in 27 minutes 7 seconds.
"It was so much fun," Terri said. "It was
great to do that with him."
Terri has come a long way in two years,
but she still has a sugar weakness.
"Sweets are what are tough for me to
avoid,"Terri said."I drink a lot less soda, but
every once in a while I have to have a home-
made chocolate chip cookie. Every so often I
splurge a little.The important thing is not to
do it very often and to limit it to one."
Despite those occasional moments of
weakness brought on by sweets,Terri is confi-
dent she will maintain her weight.
"I've made a commitment to be healthy
for my husband and kids,"Terri said."I don't
want to be a yo-yo dieter. If I see myself slip-
ping a little, I take care of it instead of letting
it get out of hand. Sometimes it's hard, but I
know it's the best thing.

It's OK to treat yourself - in moderation
Editor's Note: Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we
are heavier than ever before. The challenge is to determine the calorie and fat content
of menu items and make healthy choices. Samantha Taylor offers her tips on how you
can make responsible choices while dining out.


By Samantha Taylor

I have to admit, I am not one to splurge
on expensive dinners in fancy restaurants,
but I have heard so much about Ruth's
Chris Steak House inTampa and have been
intrigued by the specials they were run-
ning that I decided to take my personal
trainers there for our Christmas dinner.
Ruth's Chris may sound high for a spe-
cial, but it's actually a great price for a
five-star restaurant.
The atmosphere didn't impress me; I felt it
lacked in decor and ambience and to my sur-
prise, it actually had a cafeteria-style vibe to it.
The four of us were seated in a cozy booth
with "mood lighting" that we could hardly see
each other, although I think it is romantic and
perfect for lovers celebrating a Valentine or
anniversary dinner. But, never mind the ambi-
ence, the steak was so worth it.
We started with crab-stuffed mush-
rooms, which I really liked. They were
pretty good and not as fattening as the
ones I have had in other restaurants. It is
not at all bad to enjoy just one piece.
Ruth's Chris deals included a three-
course meal for $39.95 which had salad,
steak and dessert. That may sound high,
but if you buy these meals "a la carte" at
other fancy restaurants, paying individually
for salad, entree and veggies would really
jack up your bill.
I didn't have that. Instead, I splurged on
the salad, steak, lobster and side special
that cost $49.95. I never spend this much
on a meal, but this once is a treat. My order


came and I had a taste of their heart of
palm salad and it was quite delectable.The
steak - oh the steak - was as perfect as I
heard it to be! It melted like butter in my
mouth and, oh, it would now be hard to
eat an Outback steak after having Ruth's
Chris! The lobster was a real huge tail of a
Caribbean lobster, which was rather tough.
I wouldn't personally order this kind of
lobster as the ones I'm used to having are
very soft. I didn't eat too much of it as I al-
ready felt full from the other food I ate, so I
packed it up for leftovers tomorrow.
As for the dessert, this may sound
weird coming from an ex-sugar addict, but
I actually found it too sweet. Ha, I never
thought I would say that!
I'd rate the experience as so-so for how
much the bill was for four people, but the
steak was so spectacular and I had
an awesome time with my
friends that I'd say those two
points are worth going. Plus,
there is just something about
dining in those fancy
restaurants occasionally.

Cards and camaraderie


on tap twice a week


By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

They gather on Tuesday and Thursday af-
ternoons at the Lutz Senior Center with a
well-worn deck of cards and plenty of banter.
It's a small but lively group.
Rose Dyll, 75, has been sitting in on
Double-Deck Pinochle games for the better
part of a decade.
"It is fun.We are friendly.We don't play
for money," the Carrollwood woman said
with a laugh.
"We play for ego," dead-panned Elton
Shahin, an 84-year-old player from Lutz.
"It stimulates your brain. It's so good for
you," agreed Paul Ganci, also an 84-year-old
from Lutz, who clearly enjoys a deft play.
"It keeps your mind sharp. You really
have to pay attention.You've got to listen to
the bids," added Ganci, who began playing
pinochle at 18 and has been part of the club
for three years.
On a recent Thursday, just three mem-
bers turned out - so they had to play
three-handed Double-Deck Pinochle.

"Three-handed is very messy," Ganci said.
It's not exactly Dyll's favorite way to play
either. She hates holding so many cards in
her hands.
They only play the three-handed game
when not enough players turn out.
That happens more often than it used to.
"When I first started here, sometimes
we'd get about 12 people," Dyll said. But the
turnout declined as members died or
moved.
The club would love to rebuild the
group. It's entertaining and doesn't cost a
thing, they said.
"If you haven't played pinochle in
awhile, it's no problem," Ganci said."It's like
riding a bicycle.We'll get you back into it."
However, you do need some experience
to join the group because they are sticklers
for the rules.
"We play hard pinochle," Dyll said.
And, just because they're friendly doesn't
mean they're not competitive.
Dyll, in particular, enjoys trash-talking.
During one hand, she eyed Ganci's cards,
which were spread on the table and declared:
"He's got crap. He's got a lot of
losers."
C "He's in trouble," Shahin
agreed.
Somehow, though, Ganci
*" � pulled the hand off.
Sr I got it," he said, beaming.
' "A good pinochle player
counts trump."
In another hand, when
Ganci made a clever play, Dyll
declared:"Ooh, sneaky, you."

hands as she snatches cards off the table
and tosses another one in, in a split-second
move showing confidence and command.
On one occasion, she catches Ganci off
guard: "Oh, that was a surprise," he said.
These players know the glory of victory
and agony of defeat.
Once Ganci forgot one of the cardinal
rules of the game and suffered a demoraliz-
ing defeat.
"We thought it was funny," Dyll said.
"It was devastating," Ganci said.
In another hand, Dyll and Ganci got into
a bidding war - both desperately wanting
a pile of cards they thought would give
them a most excellent hand.
Dyll won the bid.
She was jubilant.
Ganci, deflated.
She beamed as she spread her cards
proving that she got what she wanted.
Ganci slumped his shoulders and let out
a heavy sigh.


But the table turned later on, when
Ganci got a hand that he simply couldn't be-
lieve.
"You never get dealt this. I can't believe
this," he exclaimed, sounding like a child
who had won first prize at the fair.
A little bit later, another player joined the
game.
When 71-yer-old Robert Potts of Land O'
Lakes showed up, they were able to switch
from the three-handed game to two teams,
with partners.
It didn't take them long to shift gears and
begin attacking each other.
"Eliminate the enemy," Shahin declared,
again revealing his wry sense of humor.
Time passes quickly.The players shuffle,
deal and play out their hands.
They are clearly enjoying the game and
each other.
"We have such a great time," Potts said.
No matter the outcome, it seems that
they do.

Keep Pasco Beautiful honored for recycling efforts


Pasco High shares in the reward

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Despite being run entirely by volunteers,
Keep Pasco Beautiful was recognized as one
of the top plastic bottle recyclers nation-
wide.
The group was one of nearly 600 organi-
zations affiliated with Keep America
Beautiful that participated in a challenge
from Nestle Waters NorthAmerica to recy-
cle the most bottles.The challenge was tied
to the Great American Cleanup last year,
which was from March through May.
"What we did was we challenged all the
schools in Pasco County to recycle as many
bottles as they could," said Jennifer Seney,
Keep Pasco Beautiful president and the
county's recycling coordinator."We collect-
ed 24,580 pounds of plastic bottles and that
really is something the kids should be proud
of."
The more than 12 tons of plastic is more
than the average weight of two adult African
elephants.The county contributed the sev-
enth most of any affiliate in 250,000 or
greater population category. The honor
comes with $1,000 award from Nestle.
"This puts us on the map," Seney said.

Lakes cleanup site during last year's Great American Cleanup. (File photo)


"Other groups around the country are
much larger and have more funding, so for
our group to do this with just volunteers is
impressive. Keep Milwaukee Beautiful had
the most bottles recycled with more than 1
million pounds, but they are much larger
than we are."
Seney offered another challenge to the
13 public high schools in Pasco to see
which could contribute the most plastic.
Pasco High finished on top with 707
pounds recycled and was given $500 for its
efforts.


"That's a great thing," said Pasco principal
Pat Reedy. "I'm proud of the kids here, but
I'm never surprised by what they do."
Reedy said the school has had bins to
collected recycled paper and plastic bottles
for several years thanks in large part to the
Pirates science department head Don
Charlick.
"Don has headed up the recycling effort
at Pasco and does a great job getting the
kids to understand it is important," Reedy
said. "Each Thursday on our school's news
show we remind the students to recycle. It's


part of what we all
need to do:'
Seney said a lot
of the credit goes to
Karen Bryant, the
Pasco County
School District's re-
cycling coordinator.
"It gets the kids
A excited about recy-
Pat Reedy cling," Seney said of
Bryant's efforts in
the district."She does a lot of great things to
show kids that recycling is important."
The rest of the award money will go to
the 2011 GreatAmerican Cleanup, which is
always celebrated in the county the third
Saturday inApril.The money will mostly be
used to buy bags for the trash and recycled
items and other materials for the effort.
Seney said the group is always looking
for cleanup site captains and volunteers for
the annual effort.
"We have locations all over the county, so
people won't have to go too far to help,"
Seney said.
To learn more about this year's cleanup,
call Seney at (727) 847-8041 or e-mail her at
jseney@pascocountyfl.net. For more infor-

Plans to launch new church
By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com

DavidWest has resigned his post as exec-
utive director of the Wesley Chapel
Chamber of Commerce.
West said he left the job this month be-
cause he plans to launch a new church
called the Church of Christ at Wesley
Chapel that will begin meeting on Jan. 23.
The congregation will meet at Lil Campers
Academy at 30126 SR 54 near Curley Road.
"I had a great experience at the cham-
ber," West said, noting it increased
membership by 200 during his year at the
helm.
However, he added, that he and the
chamber mutually decided "that it was bet-
ter if I were going to do the church that I
probably shouldn't do the chamber."
West said he expects the church to begin
with about 35 to 40 members and will likely
grow quickly to around 50 to 60.
In addition to his role at the chamber, he
also was at the Church of Christ at Dade
City for 15 years before he resigned from
that post on Jan. 1,West said.
Laura Miller, president of the Wesley
Chapel Chamber of Commerce said the
chamber appreciates the work that West


did."He's a great guy.There are no bad feel-
ings."
The demands of the chamber and
launching a new church would be too
much for anyone, Miller said. She said she
has put a team to-
gether to work on
selecting a new exec-
utive director, but
said the chamber is
operating smoothly
and will take its time
in choosingWest's re-
placement.
David West Before becoming
the chamber's execu-
tive director, West was on the board of
directors at the Dade CityWesley Chapel
and Zephyrhills chambers of commerce.
His work in the ministry began when he
was quite young. He said he delivered his
first sermon when he was 19.
He received his bachelor's degree in
Biblical Studies at Florida College in Temple
Terrace. His previous jobs include working
for the Pasco News,The Tampa Tribune and
as a contract employee for the Pasco
County health department.
Those wishing to find out more about
the new church should go to Church of
Christ at Wesley Chapel on Facebook,West
said.

possibility for this 83-year-old.
"I can't sit around," said Duke, who
speaks quietly and appears to be a man of
few words."You've got to do something."
He cuts pieces of spruce and pressure-
treated pine into pieces he needs to make
his furniture.
"About 40 pieces go into those rockers,"
he said.The sliders have about 40 pieces,
too.
The rockers are strong enough to sup-
port the weight of a child up to 28 pounds,
he said.
Many patrons are repeat customers.
"They keep coming back for grandchil-
dren and great-grandchildren," he said.
The rocking chairs hold up well, he said.
"They hand them down from generation to
generation."


These deck screws will be drilled in to fasten
pieces of wood together to make a bench.
Busy times of the year are typically
around the Christmas holidays and just be-
fore Mother's Day, Millie said.
The length of his work day varies, Duke
said."It depends on what I have to build."
How much he gets done each day varies,
too."It depends on how fast you work and
how hard."
In the summer, he works mostly in the
morning because of the afternoon's stifling
heat.
The tools of his trade include a band saw,
a sander, a drill, deck screws and wood.
Over the years, the business isn't the
only thing that has grown and prospered.
The couple, who married on April 24,
1947, has five children, 16 grandchildren
and 15 great-grandchildren.

Spina also earned the praise of Pasco

it is important."
Geiger said she was pleased Spina stayed

10 Zephyrhills shuffleboarders moving up


One makes hall of fame,
nine become pros

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Gus Bondi is leading a group of 10
Zephyrhills shuffleboard players holding up
the city's strong reputation on the courts.
Bondi, who has lived in east Pasco
County for one year, earned enough points
this season to qualify for the Florida Central
District Hall of Fame, while nine others can
claim professional status.
"I actually got enough points at a tourna-
ment inWinter Haven in December where I
used to live," Bondi said."I played doubles
with an old friend I have down there (Jim
Thurston).
"It was really hard to get," Bondi contin-
ued."You need 100 points to go in, so you
have to play a long time.There are some re-
ally good players, a lot much better than me,
who aren't in because they stopped playing
before they had the points. I love playing
and if you play long enough you'll get in."
While Bondi enjoys the social aspect of
shuffleboard, the game itself keeps him in-
terested. He said he still plays every
morning.
Bondi is most proud of being the only
person in the world to be a part of two in-
ternational gold medal winning teams. He
also won the Central District Master's


Tournament, which is for the
top-eight players in the dis-
trict, in 2005 and was invited
to play in the Florida
Master's Tournament in
2006.
Bondi has also done a lot
to grow the game around
the world. He served as the
International Shuffleboard
Association president from
2007-2008, taking trips to
places like South America,
England, Germany, New
Zealand, Australia and
Scandinavia to teach more
people the activity.
While shuffleboard is
mainly thought of as some-
thing for senior citizens,
Bondi is working to change
that perception. He helped
organize the first youth team
to play internationally for a From left are
tournament in Germany last season and B
year. He said he also plans to
reach out to the schools in Zephyrhills to
try and get a club going.
"If we have kids playing here, then
maybe we can call the athletic director for
Pasco County and have it all over," Bondi
said."That's my main goal now that I'm in
the Hall of Fame."
It has also been a special year for Susan
Dungey, who moved up in classification


. .

Dave Dick is one of several Zephyrhills residents to become a state professional shuffle-
board player this season.

from state armature to professional. She
has been playing for 20 years and has no
plans to give up the game any time soon.
"I'll keep playing for as long as I can,"
Dungey said. She then added. "I'm a
sports person. I love competition.As the
game goes along, the pressure builds. I
love that."
Dungey said she would someday like
to be in the Central District Hall of Fame,
but will not be worried if it does not hap-
pen.
"I'm happy with being a professional
now and if I get enough points to make
the Hall of Fame that would be great too,"
Dungey said.
Joining Dungey as a pro is Walt Shine,
who has lived in Zephyrhills all year since 2002.
He played for social aspect for a long time be-
fore making the jump to tournament play.
"The first one I played in was a novice
tournament at Oak Side (Mobile Park),"
Shine said. "I came in first and was so
drained I thought I'd never do one again. It
was just a beating over two days. ...The
next time I did one, I was much more re-
laxed and had a wonderful time."
Shine qualified as an instant professional
last March. Growing up he played basketball
and also did some golfing and bowling in re-
cent years, but he said those activities are
nothing like shuffleboard.
"In bowling and golf your opponent is
right next to you, but you're not really playing
against them," Shine said."In basketball it's a
team. In shuffleboard you can have a partner,
but it's more you against your opponent."
Joanne Allen compares shuffleboard to
another activity.

"My husband (Buddy) and I think of it
like chess,"Allen said."You have to look sev-
eral steps ahead and set your opponent up.
It takes a lot of strategy"
Allen has lived in Zephyrhills all year for
about three years and has played the game
for five. She earned instant professional sta-
tus at an event this season, but is choosing
to take the new status at the start of next
season.
Allen said her biggest win was in the
state amateur tournament in November in
Lakeland. Much like the other new profes-
sionals, her main goal now is to improve her
game while enjoying the activity she loves.
"It's a great social event to go to the
courts,"Allen said."Anyone who hasn't given
it a try really should."

New travel team comes up 'golden'


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

While the high school softball season is
still many weeks away, travel ball with
Tampa BayVelocity Gold has been in high
gear for months.
The new competitive travel team was
created about a year ago by Saint Leo
University graduate and former Gaither
High coach Heather Castle.The team prac-
tices at Roy Haynes Park in Forest Hills, but
players come from around Tampa Bay to
learn from Castle.
"We've got players from east Pasco, west
Pasco, Lutz, Brooksville,Tampa, Riverview,
Clearwater," Castle said."Really from all over
the place and they are all good, let me tell
you.We've got some players on this team."
Castle has been a travel ball coach for
five years and also coached high school for
four seasons. She created Velocity to help in-
crease the interest in the sport across Tampa
Bay and also as a way to get local players no-
ticed by colleges.
"Basically to get schools interested in
you, you have to play travel ball in showcase
tournaments," Castle said."That's the only
way to get a lot of places to see you.That's
what I want is to make them better and get
them signed."
Center fielder Lauren Thompson has al-
ready seen the benefit from playing on the
team.
"High school softball is really political,"
Thompson said."Here it's about just playing
and I've already had Columbia and Virginia
show some interest in me from the expo-
sure from the team."
Thompson and Velocity catcher Nikki
Sedivy both said Castle is a very tough
coach when it comes to practice, but only
because that is the best way to get better.
"They aren't easy practices," Sedivy said.


Velocity Gold with teddy bears they collected and donated to All Children's Hospital in Tampa.


"It's not like she's mean or anything like that
because she's easy to talk to and listens. She
just wants to make you better."
Castle said of her style in practice, "I
make sure to push them. I've seen other
practices where the players and coaches
mess around more than practice.That's not
going to help them get better."
Thompson has been a part of the pro-
gram for several months and said she has
seen improvement in her hitting. Sedivy said
she most wants to improve her speed and
footwork behind the plate to better at
throwing out base stealers.
"We've still got a very young team,"
Castle said. "I mean Sedivy is only 14, so
right now we're still working on the little
things and then we'll really start going to
the big tournaments in Las Vegas, Georgia
and Texas."
Along with the goal of getting players
signed, the squad was established to help
children who cannot afford the sometimes


very pricey travel ball sea-
son.
"It can be thousands of
dollars to play travel ball
now," said Velocity presi-
dent and assistant Bob
Gambino."With us it's just
$135 for the year.We've al-
ways found a way to help - B
kids who want to play." -
Gambino added the
team is looking for playing
sites in Pasco County for a . .
softball complex. He said Velocity Gold ca
there is no such area big (Photos courtesy
enough for large softball
tournaments in Hillsborough County, but
thinks there is a chance something could
happen in the northern area.
Castle has also worked with the players
to better the community.They recently did
several charity drives to collect new teddy
bears they then gave to All Children's

"Being active in the community is some-
thing I believe," Castle said. "We want to
show them making a difference is the right
thing to do."

ALL IN! Church offers adaptive basketball program


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

Like many people new to an area, Carol
Novak spent months looking for the right
church for her family, but faith was not the
only reason her quest was difficult.
Novak's son Jonathan has severe cere-
bral palsy and needs a power wheelchair to
get around. She wanted to find a church
that would accept Jonathan and her search
brought her to Van Dyke United Methodist
Church in Lutz.
"When we came the first time his
wheelchair didn't throw them," Novak said.
"They welcomed him like any other new
member."
The Novaks have been members of the
church for eight years, but the last three
have offered even more for Jonathan.That
was when JanetAtkinson started the adap-
tive basketball program, which is each
Sunday from 2-4 p.m. at the church's com-
munity center gym, 17030 Lakeshore Road
off Van Dyke Road.
"My son (Taylor) wanted something like
this and our church is so good with people
with special needs,"Atkinson said."What is
really good about the basketball program is

it isn't just for young kids.We have people
in their 30s right now playing."
Novak said that was one of the hardest
things for Jonathan, who does not commu-
nicate easily, was finding activities after he
graduated from high school. Jonathan is
currently 34 years old and goes to the
league almost every week.
"I live in Clearwater now, but we make
the drive to pick up Jonathan each week
and take him to the church and basketball,"
Novak said."It takes about an hour, but it's
worth it."
Jonathan lives in northern Hillsborough
County with an aid who helps him get
around.
Atkinson said there are anywhere from
15-30 athletes who come to the league
each Sunday, which is free to participate in.


The players are of various levels of special
needs and come from across Hillsborough,
Pasco and Pinellas counties.
"It is only for fun, but you will see some
of the kids get competitive,"Atkinson said.
"As a mom, I see it as what I would pay big
bucks for and that is physical therapy and
social therapy. It's also a good time for the
parents that stick around for support with
each other too."
Eric Fleat is the program's coach and
gets a thrill out of seeing the athletes play
each week.
"You should see those kids' faces when
they are out there," Fleat said."They're just
like any other kid having a great time."
Fleat's wife Shannon helps with the
program and also brings crafts for the kids
to work on when they are not in the
game.
The program is part of the church's spe-
cial needs ministry.


"Matthew Hartsfield is the pastor for
(the) church and has supported me for 16
years through all things special needs and
whatever he can do to support the com-
munity," Atkinson said. "The church is so
supportive to those with special needs, so
if I need crafts or snacks or whatever I
need, they will supply it."
Novak said Jonathan has been helped
greatly by the ministry
"He has been a greeter for the last few
years and it helps him be more social even
though he doesn't communicate very
well,' Novak said."It isn't strange to anyone
that he is greeting them because the
church is so welcoming to people with
special needs."
People do not need to be members of
the church to participate in the league.
Anyone interested in playing can show up
any Sunday or can call Atkinson at (813)
240-5218.

Columnist exits stage left


I had to meet you here today
There's just so many things to say
Please don't stop me 'til I'm through
This is something I hate to do.
-Kiss and Say Goodbye, The Manhattans

By Randall Grantham
Community Columnist

After more than
six years and 300
columns, this will
be my last article
for this newspaper.
It's been a good
run, but, as they say,
all good things must
come to an end. I
know it's been good for me, and I hope
you've enjoyed my rants, revelations, teas-
ings and shameless plugs, at least on
occasion.
Writing a weekly commentary in
your hometown newspaper is a "bully
pulpit," to coin a phrase. It's a lot of
work putting out a piece every week,
but it's rewarding and can be exciting.
It's like having an intimate, personal con-
versation with a dear friend, hundreds of
times over. Many of you have expressed
how the articles made you feel like you
knew me, and I certainly came to know
many of you out there, and I hope I'm a
better person for it.
It seems like just yesterday that it
started. Our relationship was fresh and
new. I could spend hours searching for
just the right song for you. And I would
(sometimes) inadvertently set you off
into a letter-writing frenzy with a
thoughtless or glib remark.
But you got me backstage passes to
concerts and events like South Beach
Food and Wine and I took you on vaca-
tions to the islands, New Mexico and
diving the Blue Hole in Belize. We ex-
plored new restaurants together and
made many new friends. (Although I
stopped writing about restaurants after
the fourth of four went out of business, I
do not believe in the "Grantham Jinx.")
We've gone through personal set-
backs and family losses together.You've
often been a shoulder for me to lean on.
I've learned a lot from you and, hope-
fully, have become a better person from
our interactions. I learned some moder-


ation from some of our give-and-take,
and, when I didn't learn to moderate,
Editor simply ... edited. I probably
earned the "left-leaning libertarian
lawyer" tag you gave me, but have broad-
ened my views thanks to you.
Our time together has also been
good to my career.Appearing here every
week has given me some recognition in
the community that I would not other-
wise have had.And the weekly chore of
organizing my thoughts, writing them
down and then cutting and rearranging
them has helped me become a better
lawyer.
But, over time, I've been forced to be-
come more politically correct. Because
of self-imposed and outside editing of
my thoughts, it feels like the thrill has
gone.
And times have changed. This paper
has gone from one of many to the big
dog on the block and more room is
needed for"community news." So, as our
newly elected politicians will also soon
be learning, something has to be cut,
however painful it may be.
I will continue to write, of course.
But without the weekly deadline, I
doubt I'll write as often. Maybe I'll start
a blog, as some of you have suggested.
I want to thank everyone who has
taken the time to read my musings.
Thanks to those who have written me
in response, positively or negatively, and
I greatly appreciate all of those who
took the time out of their busy life to
stop me and introduce themselves and
tell me that they enjoyed or appreciated
my efforts. It made it all worthwhile and
kept me going for at least one more col-
umn.
But now it's time for me to stand
down. To ride off into the sunset. To
walk before they make me run.
To you, loyal readers, I say keep it be-
tween the ditches. And when you don't,
call me.

TheLAKER JANUARY 19, 2011 FREE Zephyrhills/Dade City Edition By B.C. Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.com It all began with a rocking chair. Millie Cornell wanted to buy a rocking chair for her granddaughter to carry on a tradition she’d begun with her oldest grandson. She found one at a store that she thought would be perfect, but as she carried it to the counter to pay for it, it began to fall apart. She rejected that chair and went home and told her husband Duke (whose given name is George) that she wouldn’t be able to get a chair for Sarah. Duke told Millie not to worry. He said he’d see if he could make their granddaughter a rocking chair. So began Grandpa’s Wee Rockers Woodcraftsman, a business that continues to this day at 38133 Fifth Ave. in Zephyrhills. Duke spends the better part of most days working in the open-air shop out behind their house, a highly visible location near Zephyrhills. A sign in front of the shop welcomes passersby: “Come See What I Saw,” it proclaims.Drop by and you’ll likely hear the whirring sound of a drill, as Duke uses 2.5-inch deck screws to bind together parts of a bench. The quick and sure movements of his hands and sawdust on the floor are evidence of a man at work.Visitors can check out child-sized rocking chairs, wishing wells, Adirondack chairs, a bench swing, picnic tables and single, double and triple gliders on display on the lawn and driveway at the couple’s house. At one point, Duke set up at a flea market, but there was too much downtime in that venture for his tastes, he said. At another point, he carted chairs to the northern states because he’d taken one up at someone’s request and found there was a demand for them there. Now, he’s content to stay at home working in his shop. The idea of retiring is not even a remoteSimple beginning leads to business with staying power George Cornell, who goes by the nickname Duke, spends hours most days out behind his house making rocking chairs, wishing wells and other wooden furniture. (Photo by B.C. Manion)See BUSINESS, page13 By Tammy Sue Struble tstruble@cnewspubs.com Zephyrhills City Manager Steve Spina is planning to retire, he announced last week. Spina, city manager since 1996, stated that it was time for a change and he intended to give the city plenty of time — about four to six months — to find his replacement. In an interview, retired Councilman Clyde Bracknell said he had a very good experience working with Spina. Each of them had their own opinion, would look at an issue from each side and then come up with a solution. Bracknell retired from the city council nearly two years ago after serving a record 29 years. “In the last 15 years, he has really grown into the position,” Bracknell explained about Spina’s tenure. “He has had his share of ups and downs, but, he has always come out of it OK. Since he started, the city has progressed forward. The city is going to lose a good leader. The city has really shot up and booming. He has moved the city forward. “I hope he enjoys his next endeavor,” Bracknell added. Spina explained in a recent phone interview that the decision to retire was a personal one. “I thought about it over the holidays. It seems like a good time to start something new. I’m just ready to do something different. It probably will be good for the city, as well, to have new eyes looking at things.” Spina added that he is hoping to finish the doctorate program he is working on in May or August. Then, maybe he will do some teaching. “It’s been a great job. I’ve enjoyed the opportunity to work in Zephyrhills,” he added. “We’ll still be around! We still live here.” Liz Geiger, another retired council veteran, said the city was “blessed to have him as city manager for so long.

When she was young, Carlson used to go with her mom when she donated blood. Now, she hopes people can be that example her mom was – donating blood and saving lives. “I’ve never received an award like this before,” Carlson stated after being honored with Donor Chairperson of the Year for the Zephyrhills, Dade City and San Antonio area for BloodNet USA. On Thursday, Jan. 13, Carlson was one of a handful of chairpersons awarded for their successful blood drives over the last year at the 26th Annual Donor Chairperson Luncheon held by BloodNet USA at the Lakeland Center.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS January 19,2011 2 By Tammy Sue Strubletstruble@cnewspubs.comThe newly revived Ronald Reagan Republican Club met Jan.12 in Dade City. Attendees were welcomed and advised that the scheduled guest speaker,Secretary of State Kurt Browning,would not be at the meeting because he had to make a trip to Tallahassee. Browning had served as secretary of state in the previous administration,but retired in April 2010.New Gov.Rick Scott asked Browning to serve as Florida's secretary of state again. Steve Van Gorden,presiding over the Reagan Club meeting,stated that he wasn't surprised Scott also chose Browning for the secretary of state position as he seemed to perform his job well and was well liked. Van Gorden spoke to the group of 16 and explained that there was a lot that needed to be done,in particular,volunteers would be needed as the 2012 Republican National Convention is set for Tampa. The next meeting is scheduled for March 8 at 6 p.m.at Beef O'Brady's in Dade City. See www.pascogop.org for more information. Julann Roe, chief of staff for the Reagan Club, asked for discussion on what type of meeting format the group would prefer at a gathering in Dade City Jan. 12. Club president Steve Van Gorden encouraged participants to get involved at a Jan. 12 meeting in Dade City. (Photos by Jodi McDonald)Reagan Club gathers in Dade CityBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comCommuting between Pasco and Hillsborough counties will get a little easier by the fall of 2012. That is when the 5.7 miles of I-275 between Bearss Avenue to I-75 will grow from four to six lanes.Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Public Information Officer John McShaffrey said the project is needed to help with traffic flow of 52,000 vehicles that move through the area daily. "The interstate is being widened according to the master plan for the interstate system in the Tampa Bay area,which calls for at least three lanes in each direction to reduce congestion and improve safety," McShaffrey said."Finishing this section will complete I-275 widening north of downtown and will also work in conjunction with the coming widening of I-75." I-275 was widened to six lanes in the south from around Busch Boulevard to Bearss in 2003.Once finished,the interstate will be at least six lanes all the way into Pinellas County. There will be periodic lane closures,but all starting no earlier than 9:30 p.m.and ending by 6:30 a.m.The project is federally funded and comes at a $20.5 million price tag.It is being completed by Prince Contracting,which will also be adding devices to help monitor traffic flow including five cameras and 20 vehicle detectors."These are tools to help the traffic managers determine the amount and speed of traffic,identify problems such as accidents, breakdowns,items in the roadway,and react accordingly,"McShaffrey said."For example,if they notice a slowdown in speeds,they can look on the cameras and spot the trouble.If there is a motorist need for assistance,police,fire and/or wreckers may be dispatched to assist and get traffic moving back to speed as quickly as possible."There will also be an electric sign to let drivers know what is happening on the road ahead,allowing motorists to make decisions about their travel route. Just north of the widening project is the job to expand and resurface I-75 just north of the split with I-275 and improve the interchange at SR 56. The work is taking I-75 to six lanes on the northbound side from I-275 interchange and exit ramp at SR 56 while resurfacing existing road on the stretch of 2.3 miles. Additionally,a new exit ramp to SR 56 from I-275 is being built.This will eliminate drivers having to shift across several lanes of traffic after the interstates come together heading north.The $29.9 million FDOT project began in the fall of 2009 and is being built by SEMA Construction.The job is scheduled to be finished in the summer of 2012,but McShaffrey said the job is well ahead of that pace."It is likely this project will finish around eight months ahead of schedule," McShaffrey said. The I-275 work is not affected by a recent hold placed on contracts throughout the state by new Gov.Rick Scott,McShaffrey said. Both the above jobs are preparing I-75 for a future widening from SR 56 to SR 54 to six lanes.That project is not yet funded,but FDOT spokeswoman Kris Carson said it will happen. Another FDOT job is building new rest areas on I-75 between SR 56 and SR 54 in Wesley Chapel at mile marker 278.It is being done by Cone and Graham at a cost of $25.1 million. The two existing stops on the east and west side of the interstate were torn down and are currently being rebuilt.The job began last July and is slightly ahead of schedule of being finished next spring. The rest areas should reopen to the public by late 2011 (or) early 2012,"McShaffrey said. The new stops Ñ designed to last for at least 30 years Ñ will include additional truck parking and more space for restrooms.McShaffrey said the department regrets having to close the stops,but says it will be better for people using the interstate once done.

John Finnerty,the Habitat chapter's executive director,accepted a donation of $2,170.85 from Mooney.The money was raised by recycling aluminum cans. Mooney has set a goal to recycle enough aluminum cans to build a house for a needy family through Habitat.Mooney became involved with the organization after a house was dedicated to a friend on his baseball team while in eighth grade.He has collected more than 1 million cans and is about a third of the way to his goal. Also at the event was Trinity Carrillo,a 10-year-old student at Lacoochee Elementary and part of a family in the Habitat program.Carrillo and his mother are currently building their own home and the houses of others with the local organization.He spoke of his family's struggles to find affordable,decent housing.He also thanked those who have helped work on their home.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS January 19,2011 4 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comWhen Pasco County started the widening of SR 54 in Wesley Chapel it was promised to pave the way for a more connected region,but a pair of glitches have arisen near Boyette Road. Since the traffic pattern changed last December,the 10 or more semi trucks that come by the Wesley Chapel Business Center each week cannot leave without turning across both lanes of traffic and the blocked off portion to the south.Support The Troops Inc.,which sends supplies to U.S.troops serving abroad,is located in that complex. "It's a big mess,"said Bob Williams, Support The Troops founder."The trucks just can't make that turn.If you've got a truck worth more than $100,000,you're not going to risk it getting damaged to drop off donations to us.I've already seen problems with donations because of the turning." Williams shares the building with two companies owned by his sons. Pasco chief engineer James Widman said the county has already increased the turning radius out of the center from 35 to 50 feet. "Trucks should be able to turn in that amount of space,"Widman said.Williams'complaint with the project does not end with the turning radius.He also claims the county promised him a wall would be built between SR 54 and the center to protect it if someone hits the building. Currently,only five feet and a small guardrail separate the structure from the thousands of vehicles that drive by every day."We've just stopped using our corner office near the road because we know it's just a matter of time before someone crashes into us,especially when the other lanes open and more people drive though," Williams said."It's sad that you reach an agreement in good faith with someone and they back out."Williams said it was a verbal agreement. Widman said no promise was ever made.He said he met with Williams,who lives in Lutz, and agreed to present the idea of building a dividing wall to the county lawyer.In the end he says it was decided they would help Williams build the barrier,but would not pay for it."We compensated Mr.Williams when we bought the land to do the project,"Widman said."The amount we gave him was not only for the land,but also to account for anything, such as a wall,that he would need to build."The amount Williams received was unavailable from the county,which paid $74.2 million total to acquire right-of-way for the project. Widman,who emphasized he believes Williams is a good man,said such a dividing wall would cost $40,000 to $60,000. "They'll eventually do something,but Pasco County likes to wait until two or three people get killed before they do anything,"Williams said."Everybody is incensed by this.You can't even get to the post office without nearly getting into an accident."Williams has created a temporary solution to the problem,placing a steel overseas shipping container filled with 100,000 pounds of anything he could find next to his building on his property."It will prevent anyone from driving through our building and hopefully will get the county to move a little faster,"Williams said.The Wesley Chapel Post Office is on Boyette just west of the business center. Problems there began when the intersection of Boyette and SR 54 lost its traffic signal when the lanes shifted. Megan Hill nearly got into an accident turning onto Boyette to mail a Christmas package.She lives east of the post office and the new configuration of SR 54 made it difficult for her to see when to turn. "You're right up against the buildings and then the turn is just past them,"Hill said. "I hit the brakes to turn right and the person behind me had to go into the other lane of traffic to not hit me.I've lived here for 10 years,but I almost missed that turn I've made about 100 times." Widman said he has suggested putting signs up to alert drivers the turn for the post office is near. "The other problem is we have the wrong street name on the new traffic signal,"Widman said."That new road that comes through east of Boyette is called Vandine Road.For some reason the Boyette sign was put on top of the new light." That new road comes south where Boyette begins its S-curve.It is named after a family that owned the land the county bought to build the street.Widman said it is designed to take traffic off Boyette,which is why it received the signal that Boyette lost. "We had to remove the light because the distance was too close to have two as part of the access management plan for the road,"Widman said."It has to meet state requirements.Traffic on Boyette should taper off as people get used to using Vandine Road instead.We understand change is difficult and we aren't perfect.We'll do what we can to put the right signage out for drivers." Widman added the project to widen SR 54 to six lanes from I-75 to Curley Road is well ahead of schedule and he thinks it should be done before next March as was originally planned. Semi trucks trying to turn out of the Support The Troops'facility appear to need more than the 50 feet they currently have.

She has been hitting the gym six days a week for about an hour and a half for the last two years.Then Terri,who is 5-foot-4 and 135 pounds,heads home to get ready for her job as an instructional assistant at Denham Oaks Elementary,which includes making a healthy and balanced breakfast and lunch for later in the day. Rewind two years and Terri,50,looked and acted very differently.She would make it to the gym once every couple of weeks and didn't worry much about what she ate. "It was really easy to tell myself I needed the extra sleep and once I started telling myself that,it was easier and easier to skip the gym,"Terri said. That was when she was 50 pounds heavier,about the weight of six gallon jugs of water Ñ or the average 6 year old. "I'd always been in pretty good shape until about four years ago,"Terri said."My husband (Bryan) and I went on a cruise that I got in good shape for.Then let myself go." Terri's weight had fluctuated throughout her life,which she attributes to going on fad diets that cut out whole food groups. "Weight would come off really fast,but would go right back on,"Terri said."Now I make sure to eat from all the food groups in every meal.The other thing that is really important is serving size.Not so much with fruit and vegetables,but for meat and grain I measure things." What made Terri change to a healthier lifestyle was seeing her father,74-year-old John Vlakney,drop 30 pounds.She was impressed not only by his weight loss,but also what it did for his health. "He did it because he had heart problems and diabetes,"Terri said."That really made a difference on me because I've never really had a major health problem and I want to keep it that way." She did a lot of research and trial and error to figure out what diet and exercise plan worked for her.Besides a better diet,she gets in about 30 minutes on a treadmill or elliptical machine along with 30-40 minutes of weight training and 10-20 minutes of warming up and stretching.She also takes yoga,tai chi and Pilates and kickboxing classes. "I try and change things up as much as possible,"Terri said."Sometimes it's weights then cardio,sometimes it's cardio then weights.I do that because I get bored easily." It took Terri about eight months to lose the 50 pounds,which she has kept off for more than a year.Her efforts were recognized in a recent edition of Shape magazine with five other women from across the country. "I feel so much better now,"Terri said."My energy is higher.The psychological benefits are just a big as the physical ones." Bryan has been very impressed with Terri's dedication. "She is very focused,"said Bryan,who has been married to Terri for 29 years."She goes basically every day and she is upset if she misses it.It's been a very positive kind of addiction for her.It's beyond what I could do." Terri is a mother of three Ñ John,27; Michael,24;and Greg,20.Greg is a senior exercise science major at Florida State University (FSU) and helped Terri come up with her training regimen. "I'm very proud of her,"Greg said."It's helped me want to do better as a student to help her with what I learn." Terri and Greg participated in a 5K (five kilometers,or 3.1 miles) run at FSU last October,the first race of that length for both. The pair stuck together and crossed the finish line in 27 minutes 7 seconds. "It was so much fun,"Terri said."It was great to do that with him." Terri has come a long way in two years, but she still has a sugar weakness. "Sweets are what are tough for me to avoid,"Terri said."I drink a lot less soda,but every once in a while I have to have a homemade chocolate chip cookie.Every so often I splurge a little.The important thing is not to do it very often and to limit it to one." Despite those occasional moments of weakness brought on by sweets,Terri is confident she will maintain her weight. "I've made a commitment to be healthy for my husband and kids,"Terri said."I don't want to be a yo-yo dieter.If I see myself slipping a little,I take care of it instead of letting it get out of hand.Sometimes it's hard,but I know it's the best thing."Big changes lead to smaller Terri Beach Terri Beach changes her lifting and cardio workouts regularly to avoid becoming bored.

HEALTH & WELLNESS By Samantha TaylorPure Health StudiosI have to admit,I am not one to splurge on expensive dinners in fancy restaurants, but I have heard so much about Ruth's Chris Steak House in Tampa and have been intrigued by the specials they were running that I decided to take my personal trainers there for our Christmas dinner. Ruth's Chris may sound high for a special,but it's actually a great price for a five-star restaurant.The atmosphere didn't impress me;I felt it lacked in dŽcor and ambience and to my surprise,it actually had a cafeteria-style vibe to it. The four of us were seated in a cozy booth with "mood lighting"that we could hardly see each other,although I think it is romantic and perfect for lovers celebrating a Valentine or anniversary dinner.But,never mind the ambience,the steak was so worth it.We started with crab-stuffed mushrooms,which I really liked.They were pretty good and not as fattening as the ones I have had in other restaurants.It is not at all bad to enjoy just one piece. Ruth's Chris deals included a threecourse meal for $39.95 which had salad, steak and dessert.That may sound high, but if you buy these meals "a la carte"at other fancy restaurants,paying individually for salad,entrŽe and veggies would really jack up your bill.I didn't have that.Instead,I splurged on the salad,steak,lobster and side special that cost $49.95.I never spend this much on a meal,but this once is a treat.My order came and I had a taste of their heart of palm salad and it was quite delectable.The steak Ñ oh the steak Ñ was as perfect as I heard it to be! It melted like butter in my mouth and,oh,it would now be hard to eat an Outback steak after having Ruth's Chris! The lobster was a real huge tail of a Caribbean lobster,which was rather tough. I wouldn't personally order this kind of lobster as the ones I'm used to having are very soft.I didn't eat too much of it as I already felt full from the other food I ate,so I packed it up for leftovers tomorrow.As for the dessert,this may sound weird coming from an ex-sugar addict,but I actually found it too sweet.Ha,I never thought I would say that! I'd rate the experience as so-so for how much the bill was for four people,but the steak was so spectacular and I had an awesome time with my friends that I'd say those two points are worth going.Plus, there is just something about dining in those fancy restaurants occasionally. HEALTHY ORDERINGIt's OK to treat yourself Ñ in moderationEditor's Note: Eating out is a staple of American life, but it is also one reason why we are heavier than ever before. The challenge is to determine the calorie and fat content of menu items and make healthy choices. Samantha Taylor offers her tips on how you can make responsible choices while dining out. To save calories, make sure to order the steak without butter on top. Samantha Taylor is a weight loss expert,personal trainer and owner of Pure Health Studios in Lutz.

On one occasion,she catches Ganci off guard:"Oh,that was a surprise,"he said. These players know the glory of victory and agony of defeat. Once Ganci forgot one of the cardinal rules of the game and suffered a demoralizing defeat. "We thought it was funny,"Dyll said. "It was devastating,"Ganci said. In another hand,Dyll and Ganci got into a bidding war Ñ both desperately wanting a pile of cards they thought would give them a most excellent hand. Dyll won the bid. She was jubilant. Ganci,deflated. She beamed as she spread her cards proving that she got what she wanted. Ganci slumped his shoulders and let out a heavy sigh. But the table turned later on,when Ganci got a hand that he simply couldn't believe. "You never get dealt this.I can't believe this,"he exclaimed,sounding like a child who had won first prize at the fair. A little bit later,another player joined the game. When 71-yer-old Robert Potts of Land O' Lakes showed up,they were able to switch from the three-handed game to two teams, with partners. It didn't take them long to shift gears and begin attacking each other. "Eliminate the enemy,"Shahin declared, again revealing his wry sense of humor. Time passes quickly.The players shuffle, deal and play out their hands. They are clearly enjoying the game and each other. "We have such a great time,"Potts said. No matter the outcome,it seems that they do. By B.C.Manionbcmanion@cnewspubs.comThey gather on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons at the Lutz Senior Center with a well-worn deck of cards and plenty of banter.It's a small but lively group. Rose Dyll,75,has been sitting in on Double-Deck Pinochle games for the better part of a decade. "It is fun.We are friendly.We don't play for money,"the Carrollwood woman said with a laugh. "We play for ego,"dead-panned Elton Shahin,an 84-year-old player from Lutz. "It stimulates your brain.It's so good for you,"agreed Paul Ganci,also an 84-year-old from Lutz,who clearly enjoys a deft play. "It keeps your mind sharp.You really have to pay attention.You've got to listen to the bids,"added Ganci,who began playing pinochle at 18 and has been part of the club for three years. On a recent Thursday,just three members turned out Ñ so they had to play three-handed Double-Deck Pinochle. "Three-handed is very messy,"Ganci said. It's not exactly Dyll's favorite way to play either.She hates holding so many cards in her hands. They only play the three-handed game when not enough players turn out. That happens more often than it used to. "When I first started here,sometimes we'd get about 12 people,"Dyll said.But the turnout declined as members died or moved. The club would love to rebuild the group.It's entertaining and doesn't cost a thing,they said. "If you haven't played pinochle in awhile,it's no problem,"Ganci said."It's like riding a bicycle.We'll get you back into it." However,you do need some experience to join the group because they are sticklers for the rules. "We play hard pinochle,"Dyll said. And,just because they're friendly doesn't mean they're not competitive. Dyll,in particular,enjoys trash-talking.During one hand,she eyed Ganci's cards, which were spread on the table and declared: "He's got crap.He's got a lot of losers.""He's in trouble,"Shahin agreed. Somehow,though,Ganci pulled the hand off. "I got it,"he said,beaming. "A good pinochle player counts trump." In another hand,when Ganci made a clever play,Dyll declared:"Ooh,sneaky,you." "Sneaky me,"Ganci said, clearly pleased. When Dyll has good cards, they literally fly out of her Robert Potts (left) Paul Ganci, Rose Dyll and Elton Shahin play a friendly game of DoubleDeck Pinochle.

The group was one of nearly 600 organizations affiliated with Keep America Beautiful that participated in a challenge from NestlŽ Waters North America to recycle the most bottles.The challenge was tied to the Great American Cleanup last year, which was from March through May. "What we did was we challenged all the schools in Pasco County to recycle as many bottles as they could,"said Jennifer Seney, Keep Pasco Beautiful president and the county's recycling coordinator."We collected 24,580 pounds of plastic bottles and that really is something the kids should be proud of." The more than 12 tons of plastic is more than the average weight of two adult African elephants.The county contributed the seventh most of any affiliate in 250,000 or greater population category.The honor comes with $1,000 award from NestlŽ. "This puts us on the map,"Seney said. "Other groups around the country are much larger and have more funding,so for our group to do this with just volunteers is impressive.Keep Milwaukee Beautiful had the most bottles recycled with more than 1 million pounds,but they are much larger than we are." Seney offered another challenge to the 13 public high schools in Pasco to see which could contribute the most plastic. Pasco High finished on top with 707 pounds recycled and was given $500 for its efforts. "That's a great thing,"said Pasco principal Pat Reedy."I'm proud of the kids here,but I'm never surprised by what they do." Reedy said the school has had bins to collected recycled paper and plastic bottles for several years thanks in large part to the Pirates science department head Don Charlick. "Don has headed up the recycling effort at Pasco and does a great job getting the kids to understand it is important,"Reedy said."Each Thursday on our school's news show we remind the students to recycle.It's part of what we all need to do." Seney said a lot of the credit goes to Karen Bryant,the Pasco County School District's recycling coordinator. "It gets the kids excited about recycling,"Seney said of Bryant's efforts in the district."She does a lot of great things to show kids that recycling is important." The rest of the award money will go to the 2011 Great American Cleanup,which is always celebrated in the county the third Saturday in April.The money will mostly be used to buy bags for the trash and recycled items and other materials for the effort. Seney said the group is always looking for cleanup site captains and volunteers for the annual effort. "We have locations all over the county,so people won't have to go too far to help," Seney said. To learn more about this year's cleanup, call Seney at (727) 847-8041 or e-mail her at jseney@pascocountyfl.net.For more information on Keep Pasco Beautiful,visit www.keeppascobeautiful.org. Cub Scout Pack 323 and Girl Scout Troop 162 helped out pick up trash at the Land O' Lakes cleanup site during last year's Great American Cleanup.

West said he left the job this month because he plans to launch a new church called the Church of Christ at Wesley Chapel that will begin meeting on Jan.23. The congregation will meet at Lil Campers Academy at 30126 SR 54 near Curley Road. "I had a great experience at the chamber,"West said,noting it increased membership by 200 during his year at the helm. However,he added,that he and the chamber mutually decided "that it was better if I were going to do the church that I probably shouldn't do the chamber." West said he expects the church to begin with about 35 to 40 members and will likely grow quickly to around 50 to 60. In addition to his role at the chamber,he also was at the Church of Christ at Dade City for 15 years before he resigned from that post on Jan.1,West said. Laura Miller,president of the Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce said the chamber appreciates the work that West did."He's a great guy.There are no bad feelings." The demands of the chamber and launching a new church would be too much for anyone,Miller said.She said she has put a team together to work on selecting a new executive director,but said the chamber is operating smoothly and will take its time in choosing West's replacement.Before becoming the chamber's executive director,West was on the board of directors at the Dade City,Wesley Chapel and Zephyrhills chambers of commerce.His work in the ministry began when he was quite young.He said he delivered his first sermon when he was 19. He received his bachelor's degree in Biblical Studies at Florida College in Temple Terrace.His previous jobs include working for the Pasco News,The Tampa Tribune and as a contract employee for the Pasco County health department. Those wishing to find out more about the new church should go to Church of Christ at Wesley Chapel on Facebook,West said.David West resigns post at Wesley Chapel Chamber David West T h e e m o r e e y o u u r e a d , t h e e m o r e e y o u ' l l l k n o w .

"It seemed that people thought Steve had me in his back pocket,"Geiger said. "But,we didn't always agree;I didn't always go along with his advice Ñ although,we had a kindred spirit in a lot of things." Spina also earned the praise of Pasco County Clerk and Comptroller Paula O'Neil. "I worked with him since 1987,"O'Neil described."We started working on parks.We met in City Hall with residents and league officials to see what they wanted.Our paths have crossed throughout our careers since then.He is a great guy! The city was fortunate to have him for so long.They will miss him.He is always professional and resourceful." Recently,Spina has worked closely withSPINA,from page 1blood.The students who donate blood get wheeled back to their classrooms in wheelchairs."The next (Zephyrhills High) student blood drive is in April and I hope it is the most successful we've ever had," Carlson said.Charles "Buddy"Franklin, Blood Chairman for the Zephyrhills Moose Family Center also attended the BloodNet luncheon;he tries to have a blood drive five to six times a year."Every 56 days you can donate blood,"explained Franklin.According to Executive Vice President J.B.Gaskins from BloodNet,"Over 47,000 units of blood were collected in (this) Lakeland region in 2010."BloodNet USA says that each unit will save three lives.BLOODNET,from page 1possibility for this 83-year-old. "I can't sit around,"said Duke,who speaks quietly and appears to be a man of few words."You've got to do something." He cuts pieces of spruce and pressuretreated pine into pieces he needs to make his furniture. "About 40 pieces go into those rockers," he said.The sliders have about 40 pieces, too. The rockers are strong enough to support the weight of a child up to 28 pounds, he said. Many patrons are repeat customers. "They keep coming back for grandchildren and great-grandchildren,"he said. The rocking chairs hold up well,he said. "They hand them down from generation to generation."BUSINESS,from page 1 Millie Cornell stands behind one of the little rocking chairs that her husband began making decades ago. (Photos by B.C. Manion) These deck screws will be drilled in to fasten pieces of wood together to make a bench. Busy times of the year are typically around the Christmas holidays and just before Mother's Day,Millie said. The length of his work day varies,Duke said."It depends on what I have to build." How much he gets done each day varies, too."It depends on how fast you work and how hard." In the summer,he works mostly in the morning because of the afternoon's stifling heat. The tools of his trade include a band saw, a sander,a drill,deck screws and wood. Over the years,the business isn't the only thing that has grown and prospered.

Most recently,over the 301 Ñ issue making sure that the citizens and business owners are represented and that it (changes in the highway) does not affect them in a negative way.He was instrumental in working with the (Florida Department of Transportation).If he does call me,I know it is important."Geiger said she was pleased Spina stayed in his position for as long as he did.

Bondi,who has lived in east Pasco County for one year,earned enough points this season to qualify for the Florida Central District Hall of Fame,while nine others can claim professional status. "I actually got enough points at a tournament in Winter Haven in December where I used to live,"Bondi said."I played doubles with an old friend I have down there (Jim Thurston). "It was really hard to get,"Bondi continued."You need 100 points to go in,so you have to play a long time.There are some really good players,a lot much better than me, who aren't in because they stopped playing before they had the points.I love playing and if you play long enough you'll get in." While Bondi enjoys the social aspect of shuffleboard,the game itself keeps him interested.He said he still plays every morning. Bondi is most proud of being the only person in the world to be a part of two international gold medal winning teams.He also won the Central District Master's Tournament,which is for the top-eight players in the district,in 2005 and was invited to play in the Florida Master's Tournament in 2006. Bondi has also done a lot to grow the game around the world.He served as the International Shuffleboard Association president from 2007-2008,taking trips to places like South America, England,Germany,New Zealand,Australia and Scandinavia to teach more people the activity. While shuffleboard is mainly thought of as something for senior citizens, Bondi is working to change that perception.He helped organize the first youth team to play internationally for a tournament in Germany last year.He said he also plans to reach out to the schools in Zephyrhills to try and get a club going. "If we have kids playing here,then maybe we can call the athletic director for Pasco County and have it all over,"Bondi said."That's my main goal now that I'm in the Hall of Fame." It has also been a special year for Susan Dungey,who moved up in classification from state armature to professional.She has been playing for 20 years and has no plans to give up the game any time soon. "I'll keep playing for as long as I can," Dungey said.She then added."I'm a sports person.I love competition.As the game goes along,the pressure builds.I love that." Dungey said she would someday like to be in the Central District Hall of Fame, but will not be worried if it does not happen. "I'm happy with being a professional now and if I get enough points to make the Hall of Fame that would be great too," Dungey said.Joining Dungey as a pro is Walt Shine, who has lived in Zephyrhills all year since 2002. He played for social aspect for a long time before making the jump to tournament play."The first one I played in was a novice tournament at Oak Side (Mobile Park)," Shine said."I came in first and was so drained I thought I'd never do one again.It was just a beating over two days.ÉThe next time I did one,I was much more relaxed and had a wonderful time." Shine qualified as an instant professional last March.Growing up he played basketball and also did some golfing and bowling in recent years,but he said those activities are nothing like shuffleboard."In bowling and golf your opponent is right next to you,but you're not really playing against them,"Shine said."In basketball it's a team.In shuffleboard you can have a partner, but it's more you against your opponent."Joanne Allen compares shuffleboard to another activity. "My husband (Buddy) and I think of it like chess,"Allen said."You have to look several steps ahead and set your opponent up. It takes a lot of strategy." Allen has lived in Zephyrhills all year for about three years and has played the game for five.She earned instant professional status at an event this season,but is choosing to take the new status at the start of next season. Allen said her biggest win was in the state amateur tournament in November in Lakeland.Much like the other new professionals,her main goal now is to improve her game while enjoying the activity she loves. "It's a great social event to go to the courts,"Allen said."Anyone who hasn't given it a try really should."

The new competitive travel team was created about a year ago by Saint Leo University graduate and former Gaither High coach Heather Castle.The team practices at Roy Haynes Park in Forest Hills,but players come from around Tampa Bay to learn from Castle. "We've got players from east Pasco,west Pasco,Lutz,Brooksville,Tampa,Riverview, Clearwater,"Castle said."Really from all over the place and they are all good,let me tell you.We've got some players on this team." Castle has been a travel ball coach for five years and also coached high school for four seasons.She created Velocity to help increase the interest in the sport across Tampa Bay and also as a way to get local players noticed by colleges. "Basically to get schools interested in you,you have to play travel ball in showcase tournaments,"Castle said."That's the only way to get a lot of places to see you.That's what I want is to make them better and get them signed." Center fielder Lauren Thompson has already seen the benefit from playing on the team. "High school softball is really political," Thompson said."Here it's about just playing and I've already had Columbia and Virginia show some interest in me from the exposure from the team." Thompson and Velocity catcher Nikki Sedivy both said Castle is a very tough coach when it comes to practice,but only because that is the best way to get better. "They aren't easy practices,"Sedivy said. "It's not like she's mean or anything like that because she's easy to talk to and listens.She just wants to make you better." Castle said of her style in practice,"I make sure to push them.I've seen other practices where the players and coaches mess around more than practice.That's not going to help them get better." Thompson has been a part of the program for several months and said she has seen improvement in her hitting.Sedivy said she most wants to improve her speed and footwork behind the plate to better at throwing out base stealers. "We've still got a very young team," Castle said."I mean Sedivy is only 14,so right now we're still working on the little things and then we'll really start going to the big tournaments in Las Vegas,Georgia and Texas." Along with the goal of getting players signed,the squad was established to help children who cannot afford the sometimes very pricey travel ball season. "It can be thousands of dollars to play travel ball now,"said Velocity president and assistant Bob Gambino."With us it's just $135 for the year.We've always found a way to help kids who want to play." Gambino added the team is looking for playing sites in Pasco County for a softball complex.He said there is no such area big enough for large softball tournaments in Hillsborough County,but thinks there is a chance something could happen in the northern area. Castle has also worked with the players to better the community.They recently did several charity drives to collect new teddy bears they then gave to All Children's Hospital in Tampa. "Being active in the community is something I believe,"Castle said."We want to show them making a difference is the right thing to do."For more information on Velocity Gold, e-mail Castle at chachacas@aol.com.

Expires 01-31-11.By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comLike many people new to an area,Carol Novak spent months looking for the right church for her family,but faith was not the only reason her quest was difficult. Novak's son Jonathan has severe cerebral palsy and needs a power wheelchair to get around.She wanted to find a church that would accept Jonathan and her search brought her to Van Dyke United Methodist Church in Lutz. "When we came the first time his wheelchair didn't throw them,"Novak said. "They welcomed him like any other new member." The Novaks have been members of the church for eight years,but the last three have offered even more for Jonathan.That was when Janet Atkinson started the adaptive basketball program,which is each Sunday from 2-4 p.m.at the church's community center gym,17030 Lakeshore Road off Van Dyke Road. "My son (Taylor) wanted something like this and our church is so good with people with special needs,"Atkinson said."What is really good about the basketball program is it isn't just for young kids.We have people in their 30s right now playing." Novak said that was one of the hardest things for Jonathan,who does not communicate easily,was finding activities after he graduated from high school.Jonathan is currently 34 years old and goes to the league almost every week. "I live in Clearwater now,but we make the drive to pick up Jonathan each week and take him to the church and basketball," Novak said."It takes about an hour,but it's worth it." Jonathan lives in northern Hillsborough County with an aid who helps him get around. Atkinson said there are anywhere from 15-30 athletes who come to the league each Sunday,which is free to participate in. ALL IN!

(Photo by Glenn Gefers of www.Photosby3g.com)The players are of various levels of special needs and come from across Hillsborough, Pasco and Pinellas counties. "It is only for fun,but you will see some of the kids get competitive,"Atkinson said. "As a mom,I see it as what I would pay big bucks for and that is physical therapy and social therapy.It's also a good time for the parents that stick around for support with each other too." Eric Fleat is the program's coach and gets a thrill out of seeing the athletes play each week."You should see those kids'faces when they are out there,"Fleat said."They're just like any other kid having a great time." Fleat's wife Shannon helps with the program and also brings crafts for the kids to work on when they are not in the game. The program is part of the church's special needs ministry."Matthew Hartsfield is the pastor for (the) church and has supported me for 16 years through all things special needs and whatever he can do to support the community,"Atkinson said."The church is so supportive to those with special needs,so if I need crafts or snacks or whatever I need,they will supply it." Novak said Jonathan has been helped greatly by the ministry. "He has been a greeter for the last few years and it helps him be more social even though he doesn't communicate very well,"Novak said."It isn't strange to anyone that he is greeting them because the church is so welcoming to people with special needs." People do not need to be members of the church to participate in the league. Anyone interested in playing can show up any Sunday or can call Atkinson at (813) 240-5218.

It's been a good run,but,as they say, all good things must come to an end.I know it's been good for me,and I hope you've enjoyed my rants,revelations,teasings and shameless plugs,at least on occasion.Writing a weekly commentary in your hometown newspaper is a "bully pulpit,"to coin a phrase.It's a lot of work putting out a piece every week, but it's rewarding and can be exciting. It's like having an intimate,personal conversation with a dear friend,hundreds of times over.Many of you have expressed how the articles made you feel like you knew me,and I certainly came to know many of you out there,and I hope I'm a better person for it. It seems like just yesterday that it started.Our relationship was fresh and new.I could spend hours searching for just the right song for you.And I would (sometimes) inadvertently set you off into a letter-writing frenzy with a thoughtless or glib remark. But you got me backstage passes to concerts and events like South Beach Food and Wine and I took you on vacations to the islands,New Mexico and diving the Blue Hole in Belize.We explored new restaurants together and made many new friends.(Although I stopped writing about restaurants after the fourth of four went out of business,I do not believe in the "Grantham Jinx.") We've gone through personal setbacks and family losses together.You've often been a shoulder for me to lean on. I've learned a lot from you and,hopefully,have become a better person from our interactions.I learned some moderation from some of our give-and-take, and,when I didn't learn to moderate, Editor simply É edited.I probably earned the "left-leaning libertarian lawyer"tag you gave me,but have broadened my views thanks to you. Our time together has also been good to my career.Appearing here every week has given me some recognition in the community that I would not otherwise have had.And the weekly chore of organizing my thoughts,writing them down and then cutting and rearranging them has helped me become a better lawyer. But,over time,I've been forced to become more politically correct.Because of self-imposed and outside editing of my thoughts,it feels like the thrill has gone. And times have changed.This paper has gone from one of many to the big dog on the block and more room is needed for "community news."So,as our newly elected politicians will also soon be learning,something has to be cut, however painful it may be. I will continue to write,of course. But without the weekly deadline,I doubt I'll write as often.Maybe I'll start a blog,as some of you have suggested. I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to read my musings. Thanks to those who have written me in response,positively or negatively,and I greatly appreciate all of those who took the time out of their busy life to stop me and introduce themselves and tell me that they enjoyed or appreciated my efforts.It made it all worthwhile and kept me going for at least one more column. But now it's time for me to stand down.To ride off into the sunset.To walk before they make me run. To you,loyal readers,I say keep it between the ditches.And when you don't, call me.
