School district

may reconsider

notification policy

Procedure up for
discussion after meningitis
case at high school
By B.C. Manion
bcmanion@cnewspubs.com
The Pasco County school district is con-
sidering whether it should use its
automated telephone system to alert par-
ents when a public health issue arises in a
school.
District spokeswoman Summer
Romagnoli said last week that she would be
bringing that idea to Superintendent
Heather Fiorentino for the superintendent's
consideration.
The issue of prompt parental notification
surfaced after a recent case of bacterial
meningitis at Zephyrhills High. While a
Zephyrhills student died last week, neither
the school nor
the health de-
partment would Meningitis

of meningitis late
at night on Feb.
15, Romagnoli said.
The district followed its protocol and
alerted the health department, which sent
personnel to the school the following morn-
ing, Romagnoli said.
The district's role is to facilitate the
health department's investigation,
Romagnoli said.
In a letter from health department offi-
cials sent home to parents on Feb. 16,
officials informed parents that they were

City faces

budget squeeze

Layoffs, tax
increase possible
By Tammy Sue Struble
tstruble@cnewspubs.com
Zephyrhills is heading into the next fiscal
year much with a much thinner cushion in
its bank account. City finance director Stacie
Poppell told council members this month
the city is on target to carry over $188,000
into the next fiscal year, a razor-thin margin
when compared to the typical carryover
amount of $1.3 million.
Many factors seem to be contributing to
the lack of resources, Poppell noted.
"There's not any one thing we can point
a finger at," she said.
Oddly enough, job vacancies in areas
such as the police department, city airport
and public works department are creating
overtime hours.The sluggish economy is a
culprit, with construction-related income
revenues falling short. Insurance and salaries

From England to Zephyrhills: Pasties are a hit
By Tammy Sue Struble
tstruble@cnewspubs.com
What started as a functional meal for .
miners in England has become a tasty de-
light for those in the states. Pronounced �!..
"pass-tee," this delicious meal in a pie-type
shell originated in Cornwall, England.
In a tedious process that takes many
steps, owner Allan Gower builds these de- :
lights at his shop,Ye Olde Miners Pasty Shop Ot
at 35201 SR 54 in Zephyrhills,in the Zephyr
Village shopping area near Sergio's restau-
rant.To some Northerners they are known
as Michigan pies, although, they are nothing
like a fruit pie or a potpie. Pasties are
unique.
A pasty is a meal. It is more firm than a
pot pie as it was intended to be eaten by
hand like a sandwich. -
Monday through Saturday, Gower peels
and dices potatoes.Then he makes the pasty
dough, which is a little like pie crust, but
easier to handle. Gower portions out the
dough into pasty size balls. Next he dices
the onions and rutabaga then mixes all the
vegetables with the ground meat. Gower
rolls each pasty by hand, puts in the veg-
etable and meat mixture, folds the pasty Allan Gower (right), owner of The Pasty Shop, serves longtime customers Lonnie and

Slow returns and budget


shortfalls pause road paving


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

A Pasco County program started during
the high inflation of the late 1970s has been
suspended because of the most recent eco-
nomic downturn.
The county commissioners voted Feb. 8
to stop any new projects in its residential
street paving program.The suspension was
deemed necessary because homeowners in
the program are not paying for the paving
as they once did.
That, combined with a tight county
budget, forced the move.
"It's affected our cash flow," said Pasco fi-
nance director Mike Nurrenbrock. He went
on to say payments from citizens have got-
ten slower and slower as the economy has
gotten worse.
The program, called the Paving
Assessment Program, began in 1977. It al-
lows residents in neighborhoods along
certain county-maintained streets to petition
Pasco to repave them.The job is funded and
the homeowners pay for the project slowly
during the following five to 15 years at a
low interest rate.
Since the program was approved, the
county has finished 467 projects and anoth-
er two jobs involving drainage
improvements at a total cost of $64 million.
In the last 10 years, Pasco has done $38.9
million in similar construction, $1.7 since
2010.


All projects currently being done and
those awaiting approval are not affected by
the move, but homeowners planning to file
for the program will be out of luck until the
economy turns around. Those projects
being done or awaiting approval total $7.5
million.
County commissioner chairwomanAnn
Hildebrand said she does not want the pro-
gram to end, but felt it was in the short-term
best interest of the county.
"There are a lot of people who would
like to see their road be done," Hildebrand
said."To say after next year we're going to
eliminate this program, I guess that disturbs
me a lot."
Fellow commissioner Jack Mariano said
what upsets him is county residents are al-
most always pleased with the work done.
"I can't think of a single project we've
done where we haven't had a happy citizen-
ry after were done,' Mariano said.
Both commissioners and Nurrenbrock
said the suspension is a temporary way to
save money during the budget cycle. If the
program goes away for good, the county
would have to increase its own public
works programs to fix potholes and other is-
sues on the roadways.
"We understand homeowners are more
willing to pay their water and heating bills
right now than the one for their roads,"
Hildebrand said."We're hoping things get
better, people start paying the bill again and
we can go back to the old program."

Compromise reached in Pasco Sheriff's budget


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

A late compromise by Pasco County
Sheriff Bob White and county commission-
ers prevented a hearing with Gov. Rick Scott
and his cabinet.
White was appealing the commission's
decision to not raise the budget for his de-
partment for the current fiscal year, part of a
long-running feud between the two offices.
The Pasco Sheriff's Office received $85.5
million in funding, but White was asking for
a $4 million increase to pay for 28 new
deputies and offset the rising cost of pen-
sions and retirement for those already on
staff.
The commission rejectedWhite's count-
er offer of a $2 million increase to bring on
21 new officers because they are projecting
as large as a $10 million shortfall next year.
"We won't have the money to keep new
officers on board," said Pasco Commission
ChairwomanAnn Hildebrand.
The commission voted 4-1 at an emer-
gency meeting Feb. 12 to offer White an
increase of $945,000 to pay for the rising
cost. He called Hildebrand the following day


to accept the propos-
al.
"He said his de-
partment was in the
red and needed the
money to level his
costs," Hildebrand
said."He still wanted
to hire new officers,
but said this was
more important right
now."


Pasco Sheriff
Bob White


The new deputies
were slated to bolster
law enforcement pres-
ence in west Pasco.
The meeting in
Tallahassee was to
take place on Monday,
Feb. 14. Hildebrand Pasco Commission
said Scott's office was Chairwoman Ann
pressuring the two Hildebrand
sides to come to an
agreement before the hearing.
"The commissioners decided this was
the only way to work this out," Hildebrand
said. "No one really wanted to take it to the
governor."

Pasco County had its first confirmed case
of bacterial meningitis this year on Feb. 15.
Deanna Krautner, a spokesperson for the
county health department, confirmed there
was a case of the disease in the Pasco
School district.
Dr. David Johnson, director of the county
health department, said all forms of menin-
gitis are infections of the brain and spinal
cord and is spread by very close person-to-
person contact such as
kissing and sharing
drinks or utensils. He said
it is possible for someone
to spread the bacterial
form by coughing or
sneezing, but in rare
cases.
"That would be if
someone coughed right
in someone's face,"
Johnson said. "Not from
the other side of the
room. It isn't as conta-
gious as a cold or the
flu"'
The most common
symptoms of bacterial
meningitis are high fever,
headaches, stiff neck, but Dr. David Johnson
can also cause vomiting,
sensitivity to bright lights and sleepiness.
The disease can cause damage to the brain
and spine and Krautner said about 10 per-
cent of those who get the disease die,
according to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC).
Krautner said college students are usually
more at risk because they tend to live in
close quarters with others in dormitories.
Also, pre teenagers and travelers are at a

MENINGITIS, from page 1
and notify any close contacts where treat-
ment may be recommended."
The letter went on to say:"The bacteria
are not spread by casual contact or simply
breathing the air where a person with
meningitis has been (such as by sitting near
a person in a classroom, on the bus, or in
the cafeteria.)"
Deanna Krautner, a spokeswoman for the
county health department, said "We worked
with the school district to put the letter to-
gether and they gave it to the students to
bring home."
Federal privacy laws about health infor-
mation and student privacy information
forbid the district from providing identifi-
able information about the student who
died, or others who may have been exposed
to the disease, Romagnoli said.
Steve Van Gorden, principal at
Zephyrhills High, said he understands why
parents were so concerned and frustrated.
"They just wanted to know what was going
on," he said.


higher risk.
There is a vaccine for some forms of bac-
terial meningitis, but not all. Johnson said
the recommendation from the Advisory
Committee on Immunization Practices, a
part of CDC,is for everyone between ages
11-18 get the vaccine.
The best treatment for the bacterial form
is with antibiotics. Krautner said the sooner
treatment begins, the better the outcome.
There is no preventative vaccine for viral
meningitis, but the symptoms are much
more mild with that form of the disease.
While it is more com-
mon, most people with
normal immune systems
rarely die from the dis-
ease, according to
Krautner.
Several viruses can
cause viral meningitis,in-
cluding mumps, measles,
chickenpox and the flu,
but it is rare for those to
progress. Those who
catch the virus usually re-
cover in seven to 10 days
with rest.
Krautner said the
Pasco department investi-
gates all confirmed
causes of meningitis, but
only the bacterial and
two other rare forms are
tracked.There were no confirmed cases of
bacterial meningitis in the county last year,
one each year in 2009 and 2008 and again
zero in 2007.There were four cases in 2006.
On the state level, 52 people had confirmed
infections in 2009.
For more information on the disease, call
the Pasco County Health Department at
(727) 861-5250. In Hillsborough, call (813)
307-8015.

But the district must abide by the law,
and in public health issues "the health de-
partment dictates the response," he said.
"Hopefully this is a one and only occur-
rence,"Van Gorden added.
Romagnoli said health department offi-
cials told school district officials that there
was no reason to keep anyone out of school
because the disease is not easily transmitted.
But after talking to an upset parent who
questioned why the district didn't use its au-
tomated telephone system to inform
parents, Romagnoli said she would bring
that issue to the superintendent's attention.
When asked whether that would be a
good response,Van Gorden said,"It think it's
a very touchy situation," adding he would
follow whatever district officials decide.
Despite concerns raised by parents,
Romagnoli said the Zephyrhills High admin-
istration followed district protocol.
"They did what they are supposed to
do," Romagnoli said.

Lutz vet's donation to fire station saves pet lives


Dr. Jo Ann Daniels
wants to inspire others
to support the cause
By Elizabeth Gwilt
Laker/Lutz News Correspondent

When Eugene Storch received a phone
call last June, he wasn't expecting the shock
of his life.
Storch was informed by his nephew that
his San Antonio home had caught on fire,
and by the time he had reached the scene,
his thoughts went immediately to his three
dogs: Peewee, RJ and Lil Jack.
His nephew had managed to snatch one
of his dogs off the porch, and fortunately
Pasco County Fire Rescue was able to rescue
the other two. But when Storch finally got to
see his pets, it looked like a tragedy at first.
"I got there and I saw my dogs on the
lawn, and they weren't moving.They looked
like they were dead," Storch said.
The heavy smoke had caused problems
for the dogs, but the firefighters were
equipped with oxygen masks specially de-
signed for animals, and they were able to
resuscitate them before taking them to a
veterinarian.
"It was just a day full of surprises for me,"
Storch said."Those masks definitely saved
my dogs, and I really appreciate the bravery
of the fire department and vet."
Storch doesn't see his dogs as just pets,
but as part of his family. Since he lives alone,
Storch brings along Peewee, a Sharpei, and


How to help
To learn more about the oxygen
masks and how you can help, visit
www.centralpascovetcare.com or call
(813) 926-1126.

RJ,who is an unknown mix.The third dog, a
Jack Russell named Little Jack, died last year
after the rescue from an unrelated incident.
"I bring them hunting with me and they
hop in my truck whenever I go anywhere.
Those dogs are just really special to me."
Storch's dogs might not be here today if
it wasn't for the efforts of Dr.Jo Ann Daniels
of Pasco CountyVeterinary Care on SR 54 in
Lutz.
It's been Daniels' mission for the past
year and a half to raise enough money to
buy oxygen masks for animals and donate
them to fire departments across the county.
Besides funding the masks, she also teaches
first responders how to use the oxygen
masks properly.
Battalion Chief Brian Rieder of Station
37, who was on scene at the Storch fire, ap-
plauds Daniels' work.
"A dog could absolutely be like a family
member or child to several people - and
that's what we are here to do: protect lives,"
Rieder said."We appreciate what Dr. Daniels
is trying to accomplish; those masks will
make our jobs easier."
So far, Daniels has responded to a couple
of house fires and motor vehicle accidents,
and she said the masks are needed at every
fire station.


"The specialized oxygen masks are cru-
cial because if you look at a dog's head
versus a human's head, you'll notice they
aren't the same shape, and human oxygen
masks don't fit on a dog's face," she said.
"Also, depending on the breed, the oxygen
flow needs to be adjusted to fit their needs."
The set of three different sized masks
will help any breed from Boston terriers to
German shepherds. Even cats, ferrets, ham-
sters and virtually any domesticated animal
can use the masks as well.
"It's rewarding to help animals in dis-
tress. I'm a vet, and that's what we do, but I
want the community to get involved too.
Right now it's just my staff and I working on


After responding to
house fires and volun-
teering to help the ani-
mal victims, Dr. Jo Ann
Daniels has made it her
mission to obtain pet
oxygen masks for
Pasco County Fire
Rescue first respon-
ders. These special
masks can be fitted to
m-. human oxygen supplies
P to help pets affected by
smoke inhalation to
save lives. The veteri-
narian is shown speak-
ing to the Central Pasco
Chamber of Commerce.

this project, and we really need support,"
Daniels said.
She hopes her project will expand, and
she's in the process of making an oxygen
mask training DVD so she can distribute
them to all the fire departments. Daniels'
goal is to buy 30 more sets of masks, which
cost about $100 for a set of three. Currently
there are 18 sets in Pasco County.
"We all love animals, and I hope that
sponsorships will start coming in once the
community realizes the need for these
masks," she said."I'm willing to volunteer all
my time and put in all my effort, but we still
need outside help in order to achieve this
goal."

B.E. Smith and crew beautify John E Clements Field


Improvements done just in
time for the baseball season

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

B.E. Smith played on what is now John E
Clements Field at Zephyrhills High and
thanks to his efforts the current Bulldogs
squad will have well-kept turf for the sea-
son.
A few weeks ago he decided to step in
and improve the field he once played on
just in time for the start of the baseball sea-
son. Smith and the crew from Silverado Golf
& Country Club, 36841 Clubhouse Drive in
Zephyrhills, trimmed some trees, cut out a

"My mother (Tillie

wanted to put some-
thing back into the
school," Smith said.

the materials cost about

"It takes a lot of that gravel to make a
level warning track 14-feet-wide like we
have," said first-year Zephyrhills coach
RickeyAnderton."It looks very good now.
Three or four of the kids said to me now we
feel like pros with this field."
The improvements were done in time
for the Bulldogs first game Feb. 15.
Smith and the Silverado crew is also
working to build level batting cages for the
Bulldogs.

Smith, who graduated from Zephyrhills
in 1958, was a right-handed pitcher and
shortstop for the Bulldogs. He said baseball
was always his favorite sport.
"I go to a lot of the practices and I hope
to get to all of the home games," Smith said.
Smith is not done with helping the base-
ball team.
"This is a long-term project," Smith said.
"One thing I would like to do is make the
infield from first to third base clay instead
of grass like it is now. Some of the players
tell me they catch their spikes when run-
ning and I think it will just look better with

Anderton said he still cannot believe
how much Smith does for the program.
"Anything we need he just does without
having to be asked,"Anderton said."He does-
n't ask even for a thank you. He gives his
time and his money to help us and we are
very lucky to have someone like him who
loves his community so much."


Bulls take cross-town showdown 94-75 against Wildcats

By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

The Wiregrass Ranch boys
basketball team won the first
regional tournament game in
program history by defeating
Wesley Chapel 94-75 at home . U
Feb. 17. |
The Bulls (22-7) took a 52-
26 lead into halftime of the
Class 4A regional quarterfinals,
but had to ward off a 30-point
quarter by the Wildcats (13-16)
in the third that closed the J


score to 72-56.
"I don't think my kids be-
lieved what we were telling
them in the locker room; this is
Wesley Chapel," said Bulls
coach Jeremy Calzone."It does-
n't have anything to do with
the playoffs. It's about being
just three miles away.It's always
going to be a tough game for i
us.They always play us hard, es- Wiregrass
pecially when we beat them by Bayne nfer
Gefers of \
30 a week and a half ago. We
knew they were going to be
angry, but they didn't believe it.They just de-
cided not to play any defense."
Wesley Chapel sophomore guard
Christian Parra sparked that comeback with
a 3-pointer on the opening possession of
the second half.TheWildcats went on a 15-3
run to start the third, including nine points
by Parra.
"He's good. He's excellent," Calzone said
of Parra."He's one of the best young guards
in this county....He's their leader out there.
When he got confidence, I got nervous be-
cause they feed off his confidence."
Parra lead all scorers with 29 points and
added seven rebounds, five assists and four
steals. He is part of a very young nucleus for
theWildcats.
"Being in the playoffs is a great experi-
ence for us," saidWesley Chapel coach Doug
Greseth."We started two sophomores and

two freshmen tonight and we're only going
to get better. I was very proud of the way
we came out in the second half.We were
down big in the first half and I couldn't be
prouder of the way they came back in the
game."
The Bulls got into foul trouble in the sec-
ond half, including committing 10 team
fouls before the fourth quarter started that
allowed the Wildcats to shoot two free
throws after every foul for the rest of the
contest.
"It was a relief to get this win," said sen-
ior James Tringali."They snuck up on us in
the third quarter. Coach Calzone said they
would. They're young and are hungry. We
didn't come out the way we should have in
the third quarter, but we came out on top
and get to move on.You've got to be happy
and just go back to work."


James Tringali put up a double-double in
the Bulls first regional tournament win in
program history.

Tringali is one of seven seniors on the
Wiregrass Ranch's 14-man roster.The only
starter who is not a senior is Rico Kerney,
who scored a team-high 16 points and
added 10 rebounds.
"Me being a sophomore, I wanted to win
for the older guys," Kerney said. "They've
helped me get better and we want to keep
this going for them."
Seniors Michael Chase and Kingsley

Pasco schools move beyond traditional lunches


By Kyle LoJacono
klojacono@cnewspubs.com

New national food standards for public
schools may be causing some school dis-
tricts to radically change their menu
options, but Pasco County students have al-
ready been sitting down to healthy choices
for years.
"We first had bottled water and salads at
lunch 10 years ago," said Emily Mark, one of
three dietitians with Pasco County School's
Food and Nutrition Services Department.
"We have four or five fruit and vegetable op-
tions each day.When I came to the district
about eight years ago, I was amazed because
here it's not like the stereotypical school nu-
trition department."
Food nutrition manager Suellen Smith has
been at Zephyrhills High for 11 years and
worked at Pasco High for 11 years before that.
She said it is very important for her school to
offer nutritious food because some of the chil-
dren do not get a lot to eat at home.
"We are at more than 55 percent of our
kids on free or reduced priced lunches,"
Smith said."Fortunately I'm blessed to have
people who work for me who love what
they do and the kids here."
The new guidelines were released by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture in January
and called for, among other things, signifi-
cant reductions in fats, sugar and salt while
increasing whole grains, fruits and vegeta-
bles.
Agriculture Secretary TomVilsack said his
department understands the financial and
operation implications of the new rules are
great, but thinks the positives outweigh the
negatives.
"Raising a healthier generation of kids
will require hard work and a commitment
of a host of partners,"Vilsack wrote in an e-
mail."We understand that these improved
meal standards may present challenges for
some school districts, but the new law pro-
vides important new resources, technical

assistance and flexibility to help schools
raise the bar for our kids."
The new rules start going into place for
the 2011-12 school year and will slowly take
effect during the next 10 years, but Pasco
will not have to make any changes in many
areas.
Stephanie Packroll, the department's nu-
trition specialist, said Pasco already uses at
least 50 percent whole grain flours when
making breads, pizza crusts and other
starches.The cookies and other sweets also
meet the standards for sugar and fat and
they also offer fresh fruits and vegetables.
In some cases, Pasco has been doing
more than required in the new law.
"Our three dietitians look at our menus
every week and analyze the nutrition," Mark
said."Parents and students can check online

each week and see the nutrition of the
menu and make choices based on that."
Mark said the county has always looked
to upgrade the nutrition for the students,
even if it costs a little more.
"We feed about 60,000 students each day
and because the price of fresh fruits and
vegetables change all the time, it usually
costs more to give them the healthy op-
tions," Mark said. "... We also got rid of a
large chocolate chip cookie about four years


ago that was a big money maker, but after
reviewing it and what we're trying to do
with the department, we decided it wasn't
the best thing to have."
There is one hurdle that will not be as
easy.The reduction in salt is something the
county is not already meeting, but it is more
a factor of being able to get low-sodium op-
tions.
"It's a 10-year plan and the food industry
isn't ready yet," Mark said."We are constantly
looking for better choices for the kids, but
right now this is the greatest challenge.The
industry will adjust and we'll be able to
meet the guidelines."
While making the food healthy is impor-
tant, Mark said it also has to taste good.To
ensure this, the department has frequent
tasting of current menu items at the schools
and of new options.The most recent testing
was at Zephyrhills, where the students sam-
pled chicken patties, pulled pork and other
items that may soon be finding their way
onto Pasco school menus.
"The students really liked the chicken
patties and the pulled pork was good too,"
Mark said.
Another tasting was during the Great
American Teach-in this year, when Mark vis-
ited her daughter Sydney's second-grade
class at Pine View Elementary.
"I still get letters from Sydney's class
with suggestions," Mark said."The one I see
the most is spaghetti tacos.We're actually
looking at giving it a try in tasting sometime
soon."
People can also suggest new menu op-
tions at the department's website,
www.pasco.kl2.fl.us/nutrition.


Vegetarians have it easy in Pasco schools


Two years ago, Pasco County School's
Food and Nutrition Services Department
was named in the top-five school districts in
American for vegetarian food options.
The award was given by peta2, the youth
branch of PETA, and it validates something
the department strives for.
"We want to give our students choices
and good choices," said Emily Mark, a dietitian
in the department."We always have vegetari-
an options for the kids above and beyond
just a salad and apple for them to eat."
Mark said almost every food option can
be made as a vegetarian alternative, including
hamburgers, chicken nuggets and corndogs.
"We do have a variety of salads and sides
of fruits and vegetables each day for the
kids," Mark said."We weren't even expecting
the award, but we weren't really surprised
either because we do everything we can to
give the kids options for their lunches."


Mark said the increase in vegetarian
items started many years ago.
"We have a very diverse student popula-
tion and there was a demand for vegetarian
options," Mark said."Not just food that didn't
have meat, but vegetarian meals.We always
do what we can to accommodate people
and I think we've done a good job with it."
One of the vegetarian options is so popu-
lar, Mark hesitated to say that it was
meatless.
"Our barbecued sandwich, I mean our
regular barbecued sandwich is vegetarian,"
Mark said. "It is one of our most popular
items and I don't think most of the students
know it is vegetarian.We put a lot of time
into making it taste good and I think it's bet-
ter than any barbecued meat sandwich out
there."

US 301, from page 1
The original plan would have turned a
portion of US 301 into two one-way roads
using the current roadway for northbound
lanes and the existing Sixth Street as south-
bound lanes.
The Zephyrhills community reacted to
that original plan and wanted other alterna-
tives.
Jovanovic stated that they are "working
closely with the city to incorporate their de-
sires into our design." She quoted the FDOT's
motto,"The department will provide a safe
transportation system that ensures the mo-
bility of people and goods, enhances
economic prosperity and preserves the qual-
ity of our environment and communities."
The FDOT had to make proposals to the
Federal government regarding the project
changes."Our ideas are being changed at the
request of the city and people," Jovanovic
explained.
At the City Hall meeting on Feb. 28,
"Discussion will be on the FDOT alterna-
tives verses the City of Zephyrhills'


BUDGET, from page 1
also cost more than previous years.
While city leaders expect they will be
able to make budget this year, trouble could
be looming down the road.As explained on
the budget and between the council mem-
bers, departments are making efforts to cut
budgets and reduce spending.
However, at the current rate, it looks
dim finding funds to move forward for the
coming year. Council members offered a
variety of solutions, but each idea had its
dark side.
Eliminating jobs was one idea.
"It's difficult to cut staff without cutting
programs," Poppell warned.
With retail prices climbing in the last 20
years, Zephyrhills has not raised property
taxes since 1991, when the tax increased
from 6.2 to 6.42 percent, Poppell said.


PASTIES, from page 1
dough over it and crimps the edge closed.
The pasties take about 45 minutes to
cook in his convection oven at 350 degrees.
"Some, mostly Michiganers, like them
with extra rutabaga," Gower explained. So,
they call ahead so Gower can have it ready
for them.
How the pasty made its way to
Zephyrhills is interesting. Gower lc, ribc, I
the origination of a pasty.They came from
Cornwall, England where the miners used
to take them down into the mines so they
would have something nutritious to eat.The
original pasties had an extra large crust or
handle around the edge that the miners
could grasp with their dirty hands.They had
no way to wash their hands in the mines
back then.They could eat the pasty without
contaminating their lunch.When they were
finished eating the pasty, they threw the
dirty crust on the ground as good luck, by
feeding the mine's gremlins.
In the mornings, the miners would bring
their pasty cold.At lunch, they would set the
pasty on a clean shovel and place the shovel
over the warm ventilation pipes to heat
them up.

From England to Michigan
Gower continued the story. Work for
miners in England started getting scarce.
When iron ore and copper was found in the
upper peninsula of Michigan, thousands mi-
grated from England to Michigan to
work.. .bringing their pasty tradition with
them.
Tom Freeland, founder of the Zephyrhills
pasty shop, was originally from Gladstone,
Michigan. Tom met Gower working at
Outback Steakhouse inWesley Chapel.Tom
got the idea to open a pasty shop, so he
semi-retired from Outback and opened a
pasty shop in Englewood. Gower learned
the pasty trade from Freeland.Tom helped
Gower start his Zephyrhills pasty store, sold
the Englewood location and moved to
Colorado. Gower has been at this location
for a little over three years.
Longtime customer Lonnie Smrkovski,
from the Lansing, Michigan area, noticed

alternatives,' explained RJ. Keetch, assistant
city planner."They will present the re-evalu-
ation of their findings at the meeting. We
need a showing to present Zephyrhills' pub-
lic opinion."
"Hopefully they (FDOT) have completed
the majority of their re-evaluation and we
will get an updated status.They should have
a really good idea of the City's Preferred
Alternative," said Vande Berg.The CPA is less
drastic, planning for improvement in looks
and functionality without the speed from
six lanes.
Keetch said that several years ago busi-
nesses were very much opposed to the
original proposal, "We would like to get
everyone involved." He was concerned that
those opposed to the original plan should
remain involved to keep it from reverting
back to that plan.
According toVande Berg, the FDOT has
evaluated the city's alternative and it looks
positive that they would possibly change
their original plans if there is enough com-
munity support.


Council President Lance Smith said he
doesn't think simply raising taxes would be
enough to solve the city's woes.
"I don't really think so," he said. "I don't
think it would have made a $1 million differ-
ence. It's a product of the times we're in."
The solution, he said, will be multi-
faceted.
"It's going to have to be a combination
of things. We may have to look at raising
taxes.We'll know more as it (the year) goes
on. It's good to get this (possible deficit) in-
formation early so we can start working on
it now," he said.
Smith noted that the city has been fortu-
nate to have a carryover balance for many
years; Poppell said the city would consider
multiple solutions.
"We're gonna look at everything," she
said.

Allan Gower, owner of Ye Olde Miners
Pasty Shop, rolls out pasty dough in his
store. (Photo by Jodi McDonald)

Gower's pasty shop when he came to
Zephyrhills. He had to try them.
"I was very familiar with the pasties (be-
fore coming to Florida)," Smrkovski
explained. "It's really a different kind of
meal. It's a lot of work making them your-
self. It's a lot easier to get them from
Gower's shop!"
Regarding Gower'sYe Olde Miners Pasty
Shop, "They are great pasties. Everybody
should try them. I eat mine with ketchup.
Some eat theirs with gravy.They're great ei-
ther way!"
Just a little shop off SR 54 with four small
restaurant tables and not a dozen metal fold-
ing chairs is a pasty shop open
Monday-Friday 11 a.m. to 6p.m and Saturday
from 1 la.m. to 5 p.m. Gower sells them hot
or frozen to take home and bake.A filling
14-ounce pasty is $4.99; a mini half-size
seven-ounce is usually $2.99. Bite size/hors
d'oeuvre (special order) two-ounce size is
$6 a dozen.
Call ahead for special events and ask for
a large order discount. Southern Charm park
in Zephyrhills recently had a pasty night
with a 200-pasty order.
For more information, contact Gower at
his shop at (813) 715-7278.

Out of Reach


Rainbows are often depicted with a pot of gold at the end. If you have ever
tried to follow a rainbow in the sky, however, you know that it is impossible to
find the end. That's because rainbows are simply reflections of the sun's rays
in raindrops.
The ends of a rainbow may look like they are on earth, but they're really
not. This may be one of the reasons leprechauns are known to hide their gold
at the end of a rainbow.
According to an Irish legend, any leprechaun caught by a human must tell
where they have hidden their pot of gold. As long as they have put their gold
at the end of a rainbow, which humans cannot find, their gold will be safe!

TheLAKER FEBRUARY 23,2011 FREE Zephyrhills/Dade City EditionBy Tammy Sue Strubletstruble@cnewspubs.comA workshop this month will give Zephyrhills residents another chance to review and discuss plans for changes to US 301 through the city. The Feb.28 meeting is scheduled for 4 p.m.at City Hall. This is part of a series of quarterly meetings where the Florida Department of Transportation and Zephyrhills city officials, businesses and residents come together to discuss changes to US 301 through town. FDOT's project manager,Gordana Jovanovic,said they would be bringing their latest information to the meeting.On drastic changes to 301's route through Zephyrhills proposed by the FDOT several years ago, Todd Vande Berg,Zephyrhills director of development states,"It is still an important issue.People need to keep up to date on what's going on (with the 301 proposed changes),especially those individuals and businesses along 301.It should be of importance to them."School district may reconsider notification policyProcedure up for discussion after meningitis case at high schoolBy B.C.Manion bcmanion@cnewspubs.comThe Pasco County school district is considering whether it should use its automated telephone system to alert parents when a public health issue arises in a school. District spokeswoman Summer Romagnoli said last week that she would be bringing that idea to Superintendent Heather Fiorentino for the superintendent's consideration. The issue of prompt parental notification surfaced after a recent case of bacterial meningitis at Zephyrhills High.While a Zephyrhills student died last week,neither the school nor the health department would confirm the link. The school district was notified of the confirmed case of meningitis late at night on Feb. 15,Romagnoli said. The district followed its protocol and alerted the health department,which sent personnel to the school the following morning,Romagnoli said. The district's role is to facilitate the health department's investigation, Romagnoli said. In a letter from health department officials sent home to parents on Feb.16, officials informed parents that they were working with school officials "to identify Zephyrhills event looks back at WWII Bill Stemen, left, and Ken Karstetter, both from Zephyrhills, peer through a 1942 GMC Jimmy U.S. Army vehicle during the Bivoua c & Barracks event last week.

In a tedious process that takes many steps,owner Allan Gower builds these delights at his shop,Ye Olde Miners Pasty Shop at 35201 SR 54 in Zephyrhills,in the Zephyr Village shopping area near Sergio's restaurant.To some Northerners they are known as Michigan pies,although,they are nothing like a fruit pie or a potpie.Pasties are unique.

Many factors seem to be contributing to the lack of resources,Poppell noted. "There's not any one thing we can point a finger at,"she said. Oddly enough,job vacancies in areas such as the police department,city airport and public works department are creating overtime hours.The sluggish economy is a culprit,with construction-related income revenues falling short.Insurance and salariesFrom England to Zephyrhills: Pasties are a hitSee PASTIES,page15 See MENINGITIS,page6 See US 301,page15 See BUDGET,page15

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS February 23,2011 4 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA late compromise by Pasco County Sheriff Bob White and county commissioners prevented a hearing with Gov.Rick Scott and his cabinet. White was appealing the commission's decision to not raise the budget for his department for the current fiscal year,part of a long-running feud between the two offices. The Pasco Sheriff's Office received $85.5 million in funding,but White was asking for a $4 million increase to pay for 28 new deputies and offset the rising cost of pensions and retirement for those already on staff. The commission rejected White's counter offer of a $2 million increase to bring on 21 new officers because they are projecting as large as a $10 million shortfall next year. "We won't have the money to keep new officers on board,"said Pasco Commission Chairwoman Ann Hildebrand. The commission voted 4-1 at an emergency meeting Feb.12 to offer White an increase of $945,000 to pay for the rising cost.He called Hildebrand the following day to accept the proposal. "He said his department was in the red and needed the money to level his costs,"Hildebrand said."He still wanted to hire new officers, but said this was more important right now."The new deputies were slated to bolster law enforcement presence in west Pasco. The meeting in Tallahassee was to take place on Monday, Feb.14.Hildebrand said Scott's office was pressuring the two sides to come to an agreement before the hearing."The commissioners decided this was the only way to work this out,"Hildebrand said."No one really wanted to take it to the governor." Pasco Sheriff Bob White Pasco Commission Chairwoman Ann HildebrandBy Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comA Pasco County program started during the high inflation of the late 1970s has been suspended because of the most recent economic downturn. The county commissioners voted Feb.8 to stop any new projects in its residential street paving program.The suspension was deemed necessary because homeowners in the program are not paying for the paving as they once did. That,combined with a tight county budget,forced the move. "It's affected our cash flow,"said Pasco finance director Mike Nurrenbrock.He went on to say payments from citizens have gotten slower and slower as the economy has gotten worse. The program,called the Paving Assessment Program,began in 1977.It allows residents in neighborhoods along certain county-maintained streets to petition Pasco to repave them.The job is funded and the homeowners pay for the project slowly during the following five to 15 years at a low interest rate. Since the program was approved,the county has finished 467 projects and another two jobs involving drainage improvements at a total cost of $64 million. In the last 10 years,Pasco has done $38.9 million in similar construction,$1.7 since 2010. All projects currently being done and those awaiting approval are not affected by the move,but homeowners planning to file for the program will be out of luck until the economy turns around.Those projects being done or awaiting approval total $7.5 million. County commissioner chairwoman Ann Hildebrand said she does not want the program to end,but felt it was in the short-term best interest of the county. "There are a lot of people who would like to see their road be done,"Hildebrand said."To say after next year we're going to eliminate this program,I guess that disturbs me a lot." Fellow commissioner Jack Mariano said what upsets him is county residents are almost always pleased with the work done. "I can't think of a single project we've done where we haven't had a happy citizenry after were done,"Mariano said. Both commissioners and Nurrenbrock said the suspension is a temporary way to save money during the budget cycle.If the program goes away for good,the county would have to increase its own public works programs to fix potholes and other issues on the roadways. "We understand homeowners are more willing to pay their water and heating bills right now than the one for their roads," Hildebrand said."We're hoping things get better,people start paying the bill again and we can go back to the old program."Slow returns and budget shortfalls pause road paving Grand opening for Florida Hospital Sleep CenterChamber of Commerce members and Florida Hospital Zephyrhills dignitaries gather as Dr. Amir Quefatieh of the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills Sleep Center wields the big scissors for the ribbon cutting ceremony Wednesday, Feb. 16.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS February 23,2011 6 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comPasco County had its first confirmed case of bacterial meningitis this year on Feb.15. Deanna Krautner,a spokesperson for the county health department,confirmed there was a case of the disease in the Pasco School district. Dr.David Johnson,director of the county health department,said all forms of meningitis are infections of the brain and spinal cord and is spread by very close person-toperson contact such as kissing and sharing drinks or utensils.He said it is possible for someone to spread the bacterial form by coughing or sneezing,but in rare cases. "That would be if someone coughed right in someone's face," Johnson said."Not from the other side of the room.It isn't as contagious as a cold or the flu." The most common symptoms of bacterial meningitis are high fever, headaches,stiff neck,but can also cause vomiting, sensitivity to bright lights and sleepiness. The disease can cause damage to the brain and spine and Krautner said about 10 percent of those who get the disease die, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Krautner said college students are usually more at risk because they tend to live in close quarters with others in dormitories. Also,pre teenagers and travelers are at a higher risk. There is a vaccine for some forms of bacterial meningitis,but not all.Johnson said the recommendation from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices,a part of CDC,is for everyone between ages 11-18 get the vaccine. The best treatment for the bacterial form is with antibiotics.Krautner said the sooner treatment begins,the better the outcome. There is no preventative vaccine for viral meningitis,but the symptoms are much more mild with that form of the disease. While it is more common,most people with normal immune systems rarely die from the disease,according to Krautner. Several viruses can cause viral meningitis,including mumps,measles, chickenpox and the flu, but it is rare for those to progress.Those who catch the virus usually recover in seven to 10 days with rest. Krautner said the Pasco department investigates all confirmed causes of meningitis,but only the bacterial and two other rare forms are tracked.There were no confirmed cases of bacterial meningitis in the county last year, one each year in 2009 and 2008 and again zero in 2007.There were four cases in 2006. On the state level,52 people had confirmed infections in 2009. For more information on the disease,call the Pasco County Health Department at (727) 861-5250.In Hillsborough,call (813) 307-8015. Dr. David JohnsonBacterial meningitis: symptoms, treatment and preventionand notify any close contacts where treatment may be recommended." The letter went on to say:"The bacteria are not spread by casual contact or simply breathing the air where a person with meningitis has been (such as by sitting near a person in a classroom,on the bus,or in the cafeteria.)" Deanna Krautner,a spokeswoman for the county health department,said "We worked with the school district to put the letter together and they gave it to the students to bring home." Federal privacy laws about health information and student privacy information forbid the district from providing identifiable information about the student who died,or others who may have been exposed to the disease,Romagnoli said. Steve Van Gorden,principal at Zephyrhills High,said he understands why parents were so concerned and frustrated. "They just wanted to know what was going on,"he said. But the district must abide by the law, and in public health issues "the health department dictates the response,"he said. "Hopefully this is a one and only occurrence,"Van Gorden added. Romagnoli said health department officials told school district officials that there was no reason to keep anyone out of school because the disease is not easily transmitted. But after talking to an upset parent who questioned why the district didn't use its automated telephone system to inform parents,Romagnoli said she would bring that issue to the superintendent's attention. When asked whether that would be a good response,Van Gorden said,"It think it's a very touchy situation,"adding he would follow whatever district officials decide. Despite concerns raised by parents, Romagnoli said the Zephyrhills High administration followed district protocol. "They did what they are supposed to do,"Romagnoli said.

813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS February 23,2011 8 Dr. Jo Ann Daniels wants to inspire others to support the causeBy Elizabeth GwiltLaker/Lutz News CorrespondentWhen Eugene Storch received a phone call last June,he wasn't expecting the shock of his life. Storch was informed by his nephew that his San Antonio home had caught on fire, and by the time he had reached the scene, his thoughts went immediately to his three dogs:Peewee,RJ and Lil Jack.His nephew had managed to snatch one of his dogs off the porch,and fortunately Pasco County Fire Rescue was able to rescue the other two.But when Storch finally got to see his pets,it looked like a tragedy at first."I got there and I saw my dogs on the lawn,and they weren't moving.They looked like they were dead,"Storch said. The heavy smoke had caused problems for the dogs,but the firefighters were equipped with oxygen masks specially designed for animals,and they were able to resuscitate them before taking them to a veterinarian. "It was just a day full of surprises for me," Storch said."Those masks definitely saved my dogs,and I really appreciate the bravery of the fire department and vet." Storch doesn't see his dogs as just pets, but as part of his family.Since he lives alone, Storch brings along Peewee,a Sharpei,and RJ,who is an unknown mix.The third dog,a Jack Russell named Little Jack,died last year after the rescue from an unrelated incident. "I bring them hunting with me and they hop in my truck whenever I go anywhere. Those dogs are just really special to me." Storch's dogs might not be here today if it wasn't for the efforts of Dr.Jo Ann Daniels of Pasco County Veterinary Care on SR 54 in Lutz. It's been Daniels'mission for the past year and a half to raise enough money to buy oxygen masks for animals and donate them to fire departments across the county. Besides funding the masks,she also teaches first responders how to use the oxygen masks properly. Battalion Chief Brian Rieder of Station 37,who was on scene at the Storch fire,applauds Daniels'work. "A dog could absolutely be like a family member or child to several people Ñ and that's what we are here to do:protect lives," Rieder said."We appreciate what Dr.Daniels is trying to accomplish;those masks will make our jobs easier." So far,Daniels has responded to a couple of house fires and motor vehicle accidents, and she said the masks are needed at every fire station. "The specialized oxygen masks are crucial because if you look at a dog's head versus a human's head,you'll notice they aren't the same shape,and human oxygen masks don't fit on a dog's face,"she said. "Also,depending on the breed,the oxygen flow needs to be adjusted to fit their needs." The set of three different sized masks will help any breed from Boston terriers to German shepherds.Even cats,ferrets,hamsters and virtually any domesticated animal can use the masks as well. "It's rewarding to help animals in distress.I'm a vet,and that's what we do,but I want the community to get involved too. Right now it's just my staff and I working on this project,and we really need support," Daniels said. She hopes her project will expand,and she's in the process of making an oxygen mask training DVD so she can distribute them to all the fire departments.Daniels' goal is to buy 30 more sets of masks,which cost about $100 for a set of three.Currently there are 18 sets in Pasco County. "We all love animals,and I hope that sponsorships will start coming in once the community realizes the need for these masks,"she said."I'm willing to volunteer all my time and put in all my effort,but we still need outside help in order to achieve this goal." How to helpTo learn more about the oxygen masks and how you can help, visit www.centralpascovetcare.com or call (813) 926-1126. After responding to house fires and volunteering to help the animal victims, Dr. Jo Ann Daniels has made it her mission to obtain pet oxygen masks for Pasco County Fire Rescue first responders.These special masks can be fitted to human oxygen supplies to help pets affected by smoke inhalation to save lives.The veterinarian is shown speaking to the Central Pasco Chamber of Commerce.

Your Neighborhood Sports Source Community SportsCommunity Sports By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comThe Wiregrass Ranch boys basketball team won the first regional tournament game in program history by defeating Wesley Chapel 94-75 at home Feb.17. The Bulls (22-7) took a 5226 lead into halftime of the Class 4A regional quarterfinals, but had to ward off a 30-point quarter by the Wildcats (13-16) in the third that closed the score to 72-56. "I don't think my kids believed what we were telling them in the locker room;this is Wesley Chapel,"said Bulls coach Jeremy Calzone."It doesn't have anything to do with the playoffs.It's about being just three miles away.It's always going to be a tough game for us.They always play us hard,especially when we beat them by 30 a week and a half ago.We knew they were going to be angry,but they didn't believe it.They just decided not to play any defense." Wesley Chapel sophomore guard Christian Parra sparked that comeback with a 3-pointer on the opening possession of the second half.The Wildcats went on a 15-3 run to start the third,including nine points by Parra. "He's good.He's excellent,"Calzone said of Parra."He's one of the best young guards in this county.ÉHe's their leader out there. When he got confidence,I got nervous because they feed off his confidence." Parra lead all scorers with 29 points and added seven rebounds,five assists and four steals.He is part of a very young nucleus for the Wildcats. "Being in the playoffs is a great experience for us,"said Wesley Chapel coach Doug Greseth."We started two sophomores and two freshmen tonight and we're only going to get better.I was very proud of the way we came out in the second half.We were down big in the first half and I couldn't be prouder of the way they came back in the game." The Bulls got into foul trouble in the second half,including committing 10 team fouls before the fourth quarter started that allowed the Wildcats to shoot two free throws after every foul for the rest of the contest. "It was a relief to get this win,"said senior James Tringali."They snuck up on us in the third quarter.Coach Calzone said they would.They're young and are hungry.We didn't come out the way we should have in the third quarter,but we came out on top and get to move on.You've got to be happy and just go back to work." Tringali is one of seven seniors on the Wiregrass Ranch's 14-man roster.The only starter who is not a senior is Rico Kerney, who scored a team-high 16 points and added 10 rebounds. "Me being a sophomore,I wanted to win for the older guys,"Kerney said."They've helped me get better and we want to keep this going for them." Seniors Michael Chase and Kingsley Boateng each added 13 points for the Bulls. Also scoring in double figures for Wiregrass Ranch were seniors Antwan Prince,12; Tanner Carey,11;Josiah Jones,11;and Tringali,10. Tringali also had a team high 13 assists and pulled down eight rebounds. The Bulls will next host district rival Nature Coast in the regional semifinals at 7 p.m.on Tuesday,Feb.22.Wiregrass Ranch beat the Sharks to win the 4A-8 district championship. "In the back of our heads I think we knew and I think Nature Coast is going to be ready,"Calzone said of the rematch. "They're going to be ready.We were celebrating on their floor with a district championship.I told my kids they better be ready to come play on Tuesday or it's going to be a long night."Patriots go down in quarterfinalsThe Carrollwood Day boys basketball team played in the first regional tournament game in school history Feb.17,but could not get past Naples Seacrest Country Day. Mike Filer led all Patriots (15-9) scores with 11 points,but Carrollwood Day could not match the Stingrays offense,losing 68-36 in the 1A regional quarterfinals.Bulls take cross-town showdown 94-75 against Wildcats Christian Parra led all scorers with 29 points and gave Wesley Chapel life in the third quarter.

Clements Field at Zephyrhills High and thanks to his efforts the current Bulldogs squad will have well-kept turf for the season. A few weeks ago he decided to step in and improve the field he once played on just in time for the start of the baseball season.Smith and the crew from Silverado Golf & Country Club,36841 Clubhouse Drive in Zephyrhills,trimmed some trees,cut out a new infield and laid down new gravel from left to right field along the infield. "My mother (Tillie Reutimann) graduated from Zephyrhills in 1928 and I have grandkids there now,so I wanted to put something back into the school,"Smith said.The labor took about three days and the materials cost about $800.Smith said a crew of four or five guys,including Silverado's superintendent of the golf course Jeff Sweet, went to the school after a full day of work to do the job."It takes a lot of that gravel to make a level warning track 14-feet-wide like we have,"said first-year Zephyrhills coach Rickey Anderton."It looks very good now. Three or four of the kids said to me now we feel like pros with this field." The improvements were done in time for the Bulldogs first game Feb.15. Smith and the Silverado crew is also working to build level batting cages for the Bulldogs. "He worked so hard and didn't ask for anything,"Anderton said."He's always helping us.He said we can use the banquet hall at Silverado at the end of the year for our awards.He really takes care of the kids. Smith,who graduated from Zephyrhills in 1958,was a right-handed pitcher and shortstop for the Bulldogs.He said baseball was always his favorite sport. "I go to a lot of the practices and I hope to get to all of the home games,"Smith said. Smith is not done with helping the baseball team."This is a long-term project,"Smith said. "One thing I would like to do is make the infield from first to third base clay instead of grass like it is now.Some of the players tell me they catch their spikes when running and I think it will just look better with a clay infield."Anderton said he still cannot believe how much Smith does for the program. "Anything we need he just does without having to be asked,"Anderton said."He doesn't ask even for a thank you.He gives his time and his money to help us and we are very lucky to have someone like him who loves his community so much." Senior first baseman Devin Rogers packs and drags new stone onto the infield with a tractor Feb. 12. The Zephyrhills baseball team worked Feb. 12 to put the finishing touches on the home field. That included rebuilding the pitching mound. (Photos by Chris Drews) Austin Dixon (left) and Mark Rodriguez hanging sponsorship banners on the fence.B.E.Smith and crew beautify John F.Clements Field

each week and see the nutrition of the menu and make choices based on that." Mark said the county has always looked to upgrade the nutrition for the students, even if it costs a little more. "We feed about 60,000 students each day and because the price of fresh fruits and vegetables change all the time,it usually costs more to give them the healthy options,"Mark said."É We also got rid of a large chocolate chip cookie about four years ago that was a big money maker,but after reviewing it and what we're trying to do with the department,we decided it wasn't the best thing to have." There is one hurdle that will not be as easy.The reduction in salt is something the county is not already meeting,but it is more a factor of being able to get low-sodium options. "It's a 10-year plan and the food industry isn't ready yet,"Mark said."We are constantly looking for better choices for the kids,but right now this is the greatest challenge.The industry will adjust and we'll be able to meet the guidelines." While making the food healthy is important,Mark said it also has to taste good.To ensure this,the department has frequent tasting of current menu items at the schools and of new options.The most recent testing was at Zephyrhills,where the students sampled chicken patties,pulled pork and other items that may soon be finding their way onto Pasco school menus. "The students really liked the chicken patties and the pulled pork was good too," Mark said. Another tasting was during the Great American Teach-in this year,when Mark visited her daughter Sydney's second-grade class at Pine View Elementary. "I still get letters from Sydney's class with suggestions,"Mark said."The one I see the most is spaghetti tacos.We're actually looking at giving it a try in tasting sometime soon." People can also suggest new menu options at the department's website, www.pasco.k12.fl.us/nutrition.813-909-2800 / CnewsPubs.com THE LAKER / ZEPHYRHILLS February 23,2011 12 By Kyle LoJaconoklojacono@cnewspubs.comNew national food standards for public schools may be causing some school districts to radically change their menu options,but Pasco County students have already been sitting down to healthy choices for years. "We first had bottled water and salads at lunch 10 years ago,"said Emily Mark,one of three dietitians with Pasco County School's Food and Nutrition Services Department. "We have four or five fruit and vegetable options each day.When I came to the district about eight years ago,I was amazed because here it's not like the stereotypical school nutrition department."Food nutrition manager Suellen Smith has been at Zephyrhills High for 11 years and worked at Pasco High for 11 years before that. She said it is very important for her school to offer nutritious food because some of the children do not get a lot to eat at home."We are at more than 55 percent of our kids on free or reduced priced lunches," Smith said."Fortunately I'm blessed to have people who work for me who love what they do and the kids here." The new guidelines were released by the U.S.Department of Agriculture in January and called for,among other things,significant reductions in fats,sugar and salt while increasing whole grains,fruits and vegetables. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said his department understands the financial and operation implications of the new rules are great,but thinks the positives outweigh the negatives. "Raising a healthier generation of kids will require hard work and a commitment of a host of partners,"Vilsack wrote in an email."We understand that these improved meal standards may present challenges for some school districts,but the new law provides important new resources,technical assistance and flexibility to help schools raise the bar for our kids." The new rules start going into place for the 2011-12 school year and will slowly take effect during the next 10 years,but Pasco will not have to make any changes in many areas. Stephanie Packroll,the department's nutrition specialist,said Pasco already uses at least 50 percent whole grain flours when making breads,pizza crusts and other starches.The cookies and other sweets also meet the standards for sugar and fat and they also offer fresh fruits and vegetables. In some cases,Pasco has been doing more than required in the new law. "Our three dietitians look at our menus every week and analyze the nutrition,"Mark said."Parents and students can check online Zephyrhills food nutrition production assistant Tammy Lovings dishes up baked chicken, mashed potatoes and gravy. (Photos by Kyle LoJacono)Pasco schools move beyond traditional lunches Two years ago,Pasco County School's Food and Nutrition Services Department was named in the top-five school districts in American for vegetarian food options. The award was given by peta2,the youth branch of PETA,and it validates something the department strives for."We want to give our students choices and good choices,"said Emily Mark,a dietitian in the department."We always have vegetarian options for the kids above and beyond just a salad and apple for them to eat." Mark said almost every food option can be made as a vegetarian alternative,including hamburgers,chicken nuggets and corndogs."We do have a variety of salads and sides of fruits and vegetables each day for the kids,"Mark said."We weren't even expecting the award,but we weren't really surprised either because we do everything we can to give the kids options for their lunches." Mark said the increase in vegetarian items started many years ago. "We have a very diverse student population and there was a demand for vegetarian options,"Mark said."Not just food that didn't have meat,but vegetarian meals.We always do what we can to accommodate people and I think we've done a good job with it." One of the vegetarian options is so popular,Mark hesitated to say that it was meatless. "Our barbecued sandwich,I mean our regular barbecued sandwich is vegetarian," Mark said."It is one of our most popular items and I don't think most of the students know it is vegetarian.We put a lot of time into making it taste good and I think it's better than any barbecued meat sandwich out there."For more information on vegetarian options in Pasco,visit www.pasco.k12.fl.us/nutrition.Vegetarians have it easy in Pasco schools Let the Journey Begin...

The original plan would have turned a portion of US 301 into two one-way roads using the current roadway for northbound lanes and the existing Sixth Street as southbound lanes. The Zephyrhills community reacted to that original plan and wanted other alternatives.Jovanovic stated that they are "working closely with the city to incorporate their desires into our design."She quoted the FDOT's motto,"The department will provide a safe transportation system that ensures the mobility of people and goods,enhances economic prosperity and preserves the quality of our environment and communities."The FDOT had to make proposals to the Federal government regarding the project changes."Our ideas are being changed at the request of the city and people,"Jovanovic explained. At the City Hall meeting on Feb.28, "Discussion will be on the FDOT alternatives verses the City of Zephyrhills'US 301,from page 1alternatives,"explained R.J.Keetch,assistant city planner."They will present the re-evaluation of their findings at the meeting.We need a showing to present Zephyrhills'public opinion." "Hopefully they (FDOT) have completed the majority of their re-evaluation and we will get an updated status.They should have a really good idea of the City's Preferred Alternative,"said Vande Berg.The CPA is less drastic,planning for improvement in looks and functionality without the speed from six lanes. Keetch said that several years ago businesses were very much opposed to the original proposal,"We would like to get everyone involved."He was concerned that those opposed to the original plan should remain involved to keep it from reverting back to that plan. According to Vande Berg,the FDOT has evaluated the city's alternative and it looks positive that they would possibly change their original plans if there is enough community support. also cost more than previous years. While city leaders expect they will be able to make budget this year,trouble could be looming down the road.As explained on the budget and between the council members,departments are making efforts to cut budgets and reduce spending.However,at the current rate,it looks dim finding funds to move forward for the coming year.Council members offered a variety of solutions,but each idea had its dark side.Eliminating jobs was one idea. "It's difficult to cut staff without cutting programs,"Poppell warned. With retail prices climbing in the last 20 years,Zephyrhills has not raised property taxes since 1991,when the tax increased from 6.2 to 6.42 percent,Poppell said.BUDGET,from page 1Council President Lance Smith said he doesn't think simply raising taxes would be enough to solve the city's woes. "I don't really think so,"he said."I don't think it would have made a $1 million difference.It's a product of the times we're in." The solution,he said,will be multifaceted. "It's going to have to be a combination of things.We may have to look at raising taxes.We'll know more as it (the year) goes on.It's good to get this (possible deficit) information early so we can start working on it now,"he said. Smith noted that the city has been fortunate to have a carryover balance for many years;Poppell said the city would consider multiple solutions. "We're gonna look at everything,"she said. dough over it and crimps the edge closed. The pasties take about 45 minutes to cook in his convection oven at 350 degrees. "Some,mostly Michiganers,like them with extra rutabaga,"Gower explained.So, they call ahead so Gower can have it ready for them. How the pasty made its way to Zephyrhills is interesting.Gower described the origination of a pasty.They came from Cornwall,England where the miners used to take them down into the mines so they would have something nutritious to eat.The original pasties had an extra large crust or handle around the edge that the miners could grasp with their dirty hands.They had no way to wash their hands in the mines back then.They could eat the pasty without contaminating their lunch.When they were finished eating the pasty,they threw the dirty crust on the ground as good luck,by feeding the mine's gremlins. In the mornings,the miners would bring their pasty cold.At lunch,they would set the pasty on a clean shovel and place the shovel over the warm ventilation pipes to heat them up.From England to MichiganGower continued the story.Work for miners in England started getting scarce. When iron ore and copper was found in the upper peninsula of Michigan,thousands migrated from England to Michigan to workÉbringing their pasty tradition with them. Tom Freeland,founder of the Zephyrhills pasty shop,was originally from Gladstone, Michigan.Tom met Gower working at Outback Steakhouse in Wesley Chapel.Tom got the idea to open a pasty shop,so he semi-retired from Outback and opened a pasty shop in Englewood.Gower learned the pasty trade from Freeland.Tom helped Gower start his Zephyrhills pasty store,sold the Englewood location and moved to Colorado.Gower has been at this location for a little over three years. Longtime customer Lonnie Smrkovski, from the Lansing,Michigan area,noticedPASTIES,from page 1Gower's pasty shop when he came to Zephyrhills.He had to try them. "I was very familiar with the pasties (before coming to Florida),"Smrkovski explained."It's really a different kind of meal.It's a lot of work making them yourself.It's a lot easier to get them from Gower's shop!" Regarding Gower's Ye Olde Miners Pasty Shop,"They are great pasties.Everybody should try them.I eat mine with ketchup. Some eat theirs with gravy.They're great either way!" Just a little shop off SR 54 with four small restaurant tables and not a dozen metal folding chairs is a pasty shop open Monday-Friday 11 a.m.to 6p.m and Saturday from 11a.m.to 5 p.m.Gower sells them hot or frozen to take home and bake.A filling 14-ounce pasty is $4.99;a mini half-size seven-ounce is usually $2.99.Bite size/hors d'oeuvre (special order) two-ounce size is $6 a dozen. Call ahead for special events and ask for a large order discount.Southern Charm park in Zephyrhills recently had a pasty night with a 200-pasty order. For more information,contact Gower at his shop at (813) 715-7278. Allan Gower, owner of Ye Olde Miners Pasty Shop, rolls out pasty dough in his store.

Ryan Pickett,a member of the Green Bay Packers,is headed to his second Super Bowl. The defensive lineman was born in Zephyrhills and played with the Bulldogs from 1994-1997.Some of his fondest memories are of playing Friday nights against Pasco County rivals like Pasco High and Land O'Lakes High. "That's where I learned the game," Pickett said."That's where I'm from and it'll always feel like home.I don't live there anymore,but I take any chance I have to get back." Tom Fisher coached Pickett at Zephyrhills and remembers him as one of the biggest and strongest he has seen. Fisher is still a teacher at Zephyrhills and said Pickett was definitely one of the best he has ever coached. Zephyrhills principal SteveVan Gorden said his performances are a topic of conversation around the school. "I never meet Ryan,but it's nice to see a local get to the Super Bowl"Van Gorden said."It shows if you work hard,you can be successful no matter where you're from.He's a great role model for anyone that hard work pays off. It's going to be great that he can represent not only the Packers, but Zephyrhills." As a senior at Zephyrhills, Pickett recorded 119 tackles and seven sacks.His accomplishments were honored in 2008 when his alma mater retired his number 79.Pickett still wears the number with the Packers. Pickett was one of the top defensive recruits coming out of high school and signed a scholarship to play at Ohio State University.Unlike most freshman in college,Pickett played in every game his first season,including starting the final nine. He recorded 109 tackles,20 for a loss,and eight sacks at Ohio State. Pickett,31,left after his junior season and was selected with the 29th pick of the first round in the NFL draft by the St.Louis Rams in 2001.He played five years with the Rams before signing with Green Bay as a free agent after the 2005 season. He was re-signed by the club before this season to a four-year,$28 million contract. During his 10-year career, Pickett has recorded 454 tackles, nine sacks and 24 passes defensed in 148 games.This season,he played in 14 regular season games, 12 starts,and racked up 32 tackles and a sack. Pickett reached the Super Bowl his rookie season in St.Louis,but was denied the Lombardi Trophy by the New England Patriots.A decade later,he gets his second shot this weekend in Dallas. "I've never been back and I've been dying to get another chance,"Pickett said. "As a rookie I didn't know what to expect. Getting there as a rookie,you kind of think you're going to get back every year.After 10 years I've learned it's not that easy.I'm making sure the younger guys know this might be their only chance and to give it everything they've got." Last year,Pickett was a key part of the Packers No.1 ranked rush defense that allowed just 83.3 yards per contest,a franchise record.Pickett and Green Bay were the 5th ranked total defense in 2010, allowing 309.1 yards a game. The Packers defeated the Chicago Bears 21-14 to advance to the Super Bowl, where they will take on the Pittsburg Steelers.Pickett and the defense allowed just 83 rushing yards in the contest and he believes containing the run is the key to getting his first championship.Ryan Pickett represents Zephyrhills in Super Bowl Ryan Pickett on the sidelines as the Packers won their wildcard matchup against the Eagles.

ZHS yearbook reunionAnn Brooke Smith Neukom, editor of the 1958 Zephyrhills High School yearbook, was on a staff that included Margaret Nelson Cherry. Both of their husbands, George Neukom and Floyd Cherry, were in the graduating Class of 1954. Ann met her husband-to-be back in 1957 while trying to sell him an ad in the yearbook at Neukom's Drugstore. (More reunion photos by Tammy Sue Struble,page 10) Ryan Pickett had his No. 79 jersey retired by Zephyrhills High. (File Photo)Main Street Zephyrhills without director By Tammy Sue Strubletstruble@cnewspubs.comSix months after joining Main Street Zephyrhills as executive director,Jennifer Crain no longer works for the organization that seeks to improve economic vitality, quality of life and sense of community in the downtown area. Details of her departure from the organization were unclear this week. A spokesman for the organization,Gary Hatrick,said,"The board is not commenting on the details of her departure.They do appreciate the job she did while she was with them and they wish her well." A man who identified himself as Dan at the Main Street office on Monday also didn't offer much insight.When asked about Crain's departure,he said,"I can't go into that right now.All I can tell you is she is no longer with the company."Crain could not be reached for comment. Saint Anthony Choristers sing for the PopeThe Saint Anthony Choristers, back from Rome, gathered at Saint Anthony of Padua Catholic Church in San Antonio Jan. 30 to talk about their trip. Outside they sang a cappella "Deus Caritas Est" or "God is Love," the theme of the 36th International Congress of Pueri Cantores. Choristers, front row from left, were Melissa Tipton, Catherine Beard and Holly Phelps. In the back were Sandra Lau, choir director, Kathleen Ryan, Sarah Pollock, Veronica Richter, Mary Pollock and Rose Phelps. Other members who also went to Rome but not in the photo are Shelby Phelps, Summer Fields, Kathleen White, Shanon Teicher, Yarelis Fontanez and Jolynn Hillis.
