HEART INSTITUTEDONT MISS A BEAT. Know when to call 911.813-782-1200 TheLAKER PARKNEWS MAY 2, 2012 ZEPHYRHILLS SERVING ZEPHYRHILLS & EAST PASCOFREEThe Laker/Park News Staff Report In February and March this year women volunteers and Lowe’s Heroes, all representing “The Build Generation” raised their hammers on a Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County construction site. On May 5, Women Build volunteers will put the finishing touches on this home in recognition of National Women Build Week. This Women Build home is also Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco’s 100th home. Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County will close out Women Build Week by dedicating the 100th home with a celebration on May 12. The festivities will start at 9 a.m. at 39307 Coit Road in Dade City. Everyone is invited to witness as the keys are handed to the family. Guests may tour the home and there will be a block party theme. National Women Build Week, which runs from May 5-13, is a nationwide initiative of Habitat for Humanity’s Women Build program developed in partnership with Lowe’s. This year’s theme, “The Build Generation,” reflects the event’s goal to recruit and train women volunteers, as well as welcome the next generation of Habitat Women Builders — young women, ages 18-24 — to help support Habitat’s mission to create affordable housing. This year, more than 200 women volunteers in Pasco County worked with the Avalos family on its new Habitat house. Lowe’s provided in-store volunteer training to support this cause. “It’s so exciting for us to focus on women and include them in our building efforts,” explained Stephanie Black, director of Jessica Avalos works on her Habitat for Humanity home with her daughter. The Avalos’ new house will be dedicated on May 12. (Photo by Richard Riley) Students from Carrollwood Day School interact with a gopher tortoise that lives at Crystal Springs Preserve.

The festival, co-sponsored by the preserve and Nestle Waters’ Zephyrhills Spring Water plant, was intended to educate both parents and teachers about the need to preserve natural water and about the Florida’s water resources as a whole. “We want to teach them about the role that water plays in their life here in Florida, and the role that they play in water conservation,” said Beth Watson, Nestle Waters spokesperson. “And we want them to realize that, if we don’t take care of our natural resources, the resources won’t be here for them and future generations.” Students from five participating schools – including Saint Anthony Interparochial Catholic School in San Antonio and Carrollwood Day School in Tampa — touredA wet education at Crystal SpringsHabitat gears up for National Women Build Week See HABITAT, page8 See SPRINGS, page8


I learned that I have achoice for my post-hospitalrehabilitation. Heartland of Zephyrhills38220 Henry Drive Zephyrhills, FL 33542813.788.7114Call the Admissions Department for more information. 813-909-2800 / THE LAKER/PARK NEWS May 2, 2012 2 team in Scotland. “I found that I really loved coaching,” Graham said. “I got my masters in sports administration and was a graduate assistant at Canisius College.” Graham coached one season at Chestnut Hill College in Philadelphia, but when she learned SLU was adding women’s lacrosse she jumped at the chance to lead the program. She spent last year recruiting while scouring the university for anyone with athleticism and the drive to learn something new. “That was really hard to recruit players to a team that doesn’t exist,” Graham said. “I was lucky because our senior captain (Kelsey Cunningham) hosted recruits and showed them around to tell them what it’s like to be a student here.” One of the biggest additions was Stephanie Marran. The sophomore midfielder scored 52 goals and was fourth in Division II nationally in draw controls with 6.2 per contest last year while at Post University in Waterbury, Conn. She was named to the USA College Lacrosse AllAmerican Rookie Team. “I transferred here and I see it as an opportunity to help a new program,” said Marran, who leads the team with 33 goals. Marran plays forward for the Lions soccer team, which went 15-3-1 and finished the year ranked No. 23 nationally. She believes the lacrosse program can be as successful. “There’re a lot of talented girls on this team,” Marran said. “I think it’ll take a couple years because we don’t have very many people yet, but once we get more we’ll be good.” The journey to the top won’t be easy largely because it includes many trips. The Lions are one of three Division II programs in Florida. The squad will play the first few years as an independent, giving Graham the opportunity to schedule tough opponents. “This year we’ve played No. 3 (Limestone College) in the country and No. 5 (Rollins College) in the country,” Graham said. “People were asking me ‘why would you do that,’ but it’s good. You want to be challenged.” Tanner sees the squad uniting. “We trust each other on the field,” Tanner said. “Also the jitters are gone. The first games we were scared. When we lost to Limestone we played horribly in the first half, but in the second half we came back and tied their score 7-7 through the half. We’re capable of so much.” SLU secured its first victory on Feb. 24 19-2 at Catawba College in North Carolina. “What was nice is we got to play another first-year program,” Graham said. “It showed us a comparable opponent because they’re in the same position we are. We were able to go out and execute our gameplan and play as a team for the full 60 minutes.” Marran had three goals and two assists in the win, while Tanner scored her first of the season. “I’m a low shooter, and it was probably the first high shot I’ve ever made,” Tanner said. “That in itself was pretty exciting, but it also made me hungry for more.” The Lions lost their next four games after their first win, but rolled off a three-game winning streak after that. SLU hosted No. 14 Florida Southern College on April 18 to close out the regular season. The Moccasins trumped the Lions 18-6. By Kyle LoJacono Lesley Graham scans the field one afternoon watching her team warm up before practice, and in her head is a vision of what the program may some day become. Graham is the coach of the inaugural Saint Leo University women’s lacrosse team. She spends much of her time watching the Lions (5-8) work on passes, take faceoffs and fight for ground balls. Many of Graham’s players grew up with the sport, while others are new to the game, but all are in search of the same goal — making SLU into a perennial powerhouse. “To be a part of the growth of the sport that I love; that’s a great opportunity,” Graham said. “It’s traditionally a Northeast/MidAtlantic game. When you think of lacrosse those are the areas you think of, but it’s really great to explore the talent in nontraditional areas. It’s nice to give the Florida kids a chance to stay instate and show we do know how to play lacrosse.” Two of those locals on the squad are sophomore defender Haley Skipper and freshman midfielder Kasey Tanner, who went to Wesley Chapel High. Tanner played many sports growing up, such as softball, swimming and cheerleading, but nothing stuck until she found lacrosse with the Wesley Chapel Athletic Association in ninth grade. “It’s a different kind of sport from anything I’ve seen besides maybe hockey,” Tanner said. “It just uses a whole different set of skills, and it’s really fast paced. … I feel really lucky that I get to play so close to home.” Skipper tried lacrosse in eighth grade, but put her gear away in favor of high school soccer. She didn’t touch the sticks again until college. “I thought it was a good idea to help start something new here,” Skipper said. Graham is one of the few who grew up focusing on lacrosse. She picked up the game in seventh grade, playing four years as a defender at Ithaca College. Her first coaching stint was with the U19 junior national Wesley Chapel High graduates Kasey Tanner, left, and Haley Skipper are part of the inaugural Saint Leo University women’s lacrosse team.

Eyes are drawn to her blinding speed, powerful strides and bright orange hair, but part of what has driven the sophomore this season are a few, discreet letters written on her hand: RIP Jacob Baden.Baden, who graduated from Zephyrhills High in 2011, shot himself a few months ago.“He was like my best friend,” Young said. “I’ve been writing it on my hand whenever I have a marker this whole season.” With the memorial words in place Young won her second district championship in the 100-meter by finishing in 12.54 seconds at the Class 3A-District 6 meet at Central April 20. “I was just thinking about my friend while I was running,” Young said. “I knew I was going to win the prelims, so I basically jogged in that. I knew I had to sprint to win the finals, which I did. It feels really good.” The win this year was different for Young. Last year she had three teammates in the finals and the Bulldogs filled four of the top five positions on the medal stand. Two of those sprinters have graduated, Alex Viera and Jamieshia Parker, and Aaliyah McKenzie transferred. “Last year I had my whole team in here with me, but this year I was the only one,” Young said. “I just ran for myself this year. It’s different, but I’m still always trying to win.” Young, who placed second at districts in the 200, reached states a year ago. Her coach, Jason Rouser, said she is a better runner now than last season. “Kara executed well today,” Rouser said. “She was relaxed and took it easy in the preliminary rounds because we were pretty sure she’d make the finals. We talked about her doing just enough to secure a spot in the finals to save herself. In the finals she let everything go and had fun running. She came out of the blocks well, accelerated and got the win.” Young followed districts by placing fourth in the 100 (12.39) during the regional meet at Leto April 25, earning a spot at states. She was using crutches in the hours leading up to the race after bruising her foot running the 200 at districts. “It hurt, but I thought I could get through it,” Young said. “I wanted to get back to states and I’m so happy I am.” Young didn’t run the 200 at regionals to avoid further injury. She placed 10th in prelims at states last year in the 100, two spots away from making the finals. Her goal this season is to make the last race so she can earn a medal.

Geiger had been purposely misinformed — along with her other teammates who left the regional competition early to make it back in time for prom — that the team had placed third by the pair of teammates who didn’t make the trip home for the dance. Only the top two teams advance to the world stage.“I was just ticked off, so I ran off and started dancing at prom,” said Ashley Ramirez. When Ramirez found out the truth, she had the same reaction as Geiger. “I started screaming and jumping up and down and screaming ‘We’re going to worlds!’ nonstop. Then I started crying,” Ramirez said.“They just started freaking out. It was pretty awesome,” said Savana Wright, who was one of the two teammates in on the prank.Rosie Kettelle-Daily had the most measured response to the good news. “They cried. I didn’t cry, I’m not a baby,” Kettelle-Daily said. “It was a good time,” she added with a laugh. “It made our night like From left: Shelby Osborne, Hali Fisher, Rosie Kettelle-Daily, Jessica Geiger, Savana Wright and Ashley Ramirez made up the Zephyrhills High team that made it to the World Finals for Odyssey of the Mind. (Photo courtesy of Jill Wright)Bulldogs advance to world stage of creative competition1,000 times better.”Odyssey of the Mind is an international creative problem-solving program for students K-12 and college. Teams of five to seven students develop solutions to one of six Long Term Problems over several months, while practicing for a Spontaneous Problem.This group of all juniors, which has been competing together in Odyssey of the Mind since eighth grade, was close to advancing last year, but had a hiccup in the “Spontaneous” part of the competition. Over the past four years, the girls have watched other teams, tried to emulate winning performances, seen what judges are looking for and overall learned the tricks of the trade. As elated as the team was to advance, it was even happier to get Odyssey of the Mind’s Ranatra Fusca Creativity Award. “It’s so hard to pronounce,” Geiger said. Regarded as the highest honor provided by the program, the award is presented to teams or individuals who exhibit exceptional creativity, either through some aspect of their problem solution, or an extraordinary idea beyond the problem solution. “I would have never dreamed in my entire life that we would ever get a Ranatra Fusca,” Ramirez said. The award at the regional level was the team’s second of the year, with the first coming at the state competition. Cecil James has been the team’s coach since the girls were in ninth grade. He was in his second year of teaching then. “I was excited,” James said. “I was excited because I know that they put in so much hard work, especially over the past three years. “I do absolutely nothing,” James joked about his role as coach. “It’s funny because the only thing I can really do is…I may provide some snacks here and there. But I can’t give them any ideas. Everything they come up with, they come up with on their own.” The Odyssey of the Mind World Finals are from May 23-26 at Iowa State University.

They celebrated their 57th anniversary on April 23, and Pat’s 76th birthday on April 26. And in March, they marked their fifth year as volunteers at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. Together the couple has logged more than 1,600 hours as volunteers at the hospital’s wellness center, where they do everything from stuff envelopes to answer phones to clean and maintain the exercise equipment used by community members and employees who exercise at the center. “We just come in and say, ‘What can we do?’” Patricia said. The Ohio natives were two of the volunteers honored during National Volunteer Week in April at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills, an event recognizing 541 active volunteers who gave more than 53,000 hours of their time during the past year. “Dwayne and Pat are very reliable. They’re a significant part of our success here at the wellness center,” said Pam Colton, membership coordinator of the Wellness Center at the hospital. “I know that if I have to leave the center for the afternoon, it’s in the hands of people who want to help.” Although the Trottmans have been Florida residents for 12 years, their connection to the area runs much deeper; Dwayne’s aunt, Rosemary Trottman, wrote the book “The History of Zephyrhills: 18211921.” After a diverse career — one in which he worked in different professions such as aviation and law enforcement — he persuaded Patricia, an insurance sales agent, to retire to Florida. “I’d flown all around the country,” he said, “and I liked Florida the best.” Once they established their new home in Zephyrhills, the Trottmans — who have three sons, Brad, Bruce and Blake — sought a meaningful way to pass their newfound free time.“Once you’re retired you climb the walls,” said Dwayne, “you look for something to do.” Check It!SU MM ER CA M PS.

By BJ Jarvis Pasco Extension Director and Horticulture Agent Absent many killing freezes this winter, Skunkvine is already taking over Pasco gardens. Fast-growing and resilient, this invasive vine seems impenetrable to assaults to keep it under control. Native to southern Asia, Skunkvine has been pestering gardeners in west-central Florida since 1897. In addition to being a major problem in native plant communities, home landscapes can be quickly over-run by Skunkvine, growing more than 25 feet in a season. Earning its telltale name from the disagreeable odor released when crushed or broken, severed vines will regenerate when broken off. Left to flower, hundreds of seeds will develop to spread throughout the garden and beyond. Aside from persistent hand removal, chemical herbicides may be needed. Good chemical choices contain triclopyr (such as a Brush-B-Gone type of product) or imazapic (be cautious with this long-lasting product as annuals and perennials should not be planted in treated areas for several months following application.) Repeat applications are generally needed or Skunkvine may quickly regenerate and grow out of control. Dispose of or burn all removed vine parts rather than trying to compost as the vine may persist from even small pieces. Do you see a pattern of perseverance here? Gardeners must know that a plant that can survive flooding for over six months, then regrow, is a plant to reckon with. Best of luck eliminating this weed!

Gardeners need a battle plan for resilient skunkvine. (Photo courtesy of Pasco Extension)Skunkvine: A real garden stinker outdoor learning stations that featured interactive learning activities. At one station Crystal Springs Preserve environmental educator Helen Scott asked students to imagine themselves as water droplets, traveling to posts that represented clouds, oceans, lakes, glaciers and anywhere else water is found. At another they decorated recycled water bottles with strings and stick-on letters that spelled out their names, as well as additional stickers that represented everything from flowers to space aliens. And as they worked, they learned the reasons they should recycle. “The two things that we do when we recycle is that we save energy, as we don’t have to get more plastic to make more bottles,” said Mike Paschke, packaging and sales representative for Commercial Plastics, the company that handles recycling duties for Nestle Waters, “and we save natural resources.” At a third station, Crystal Springs Preserve environmental educator Vicki Mohr taught students that watersheds keep water free of pollutants and led students in spirited cheers of “Give a hoot, don’t pollute!” As students worked on teams to build model watersheds from materials such as straws, Mohr quizzed them about environmental topics. “What is a watershed?” she asked. “A shed that holds water?” answered Garrett Gannon, a fourth-grader at Saint Anthony Interparochial Catholic School in San Antonio. “What are some of the things we can do to fix pollution?” asked Mohr. “Plant trees,” suggested Edward Weir, a Saint Anthony fourth grader. Anne Sylvester, another environmental educator at Crystal Springs Preserve, led students on a water-carrying relay race across the preserve bridge. And she quizzed pupils about ways they could save water at home. “Refill water bottles,” suggested Tiffany Watkins, a Saint Anthony fourth-grader. Students also got to see large turtles kept at the preserve, reacting with cries of “Cool!” and “So cute!” and got to eat a free picnic-style lunch in the springs pavilion. “This event is all fun and very educational for the students,” said Wendy Briscoe, fourth-grade teacher at Saint Anthony. “It ties in to our classroom lessons about history, science, native plants and natural habitats.” During their luncheon, Briscoe’s students shared just what they had learned during the Make a Splash Project WET Festival. “I learned about aquifers and river pollution, and how to get rid of it,” said Chloe Coddington. “I learned about evaporation.” “I learned how water droplets travel,” said Kendall Merriett. “I learned how to conserve water,” said Isabelle Espinoza. “They’re learning to protect their earth,” said Briscoe. development and public relations for Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco, in a press release. “Our women volunteers are very passionate about this effort, and they’ve volunteered a lot of hours, learning the skills necessary to help eliminate poverty housing in East and Central Pasco County. Having new volunteers take part has been exciting as well. It is nice to be able to share skills and empower more people to carry on Habitat’s mission. Habitat for Humanity holds annual Women Build events to encourage women to come out and volunteer building homes. Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco County’s Men Bake Event is a spin off from the Women Build Event. Women Build is not about excluding men, but empowering women to step out of their comfort zone and get involved. Men Bake is basically the same premise, encouraging men to step up and get involved in fundraising and advocating eliminating poverty housing in our area, Black said.The U.S. Census Bureau reports more than 12 million children—one out of every six— are living in poverty in the United States.In East and Central Pasco, more than 20 percent of families are in need of affordable housing. Habitat’s Women Build program recruits, educates and inspires women to build and advocate for simple, decent and affordable houses in their communities. Since the inception of Habitat’s Women Build program in 1998, more than 1,900 Habitat for Humanity Women Build houses have been constructed in partnership with low-income families.Habitat for Humanity builds houses that are sold to those in need at no profit. Habitat for Humanity of East & Central Pasco was founded in 1994 and less than 10 years later, is celebrating its 100th home.

After visiting the center they signed up to become regular volunteers. “It’s rewarding to work with the wellness staff. Each is truly dedicated, not only to helping the members achieve their goals so they may live a better lifestyle, but they do it with a caring attitude,” said Patricia. “We love to make people smile and enjoy seeing the members benefit from a program designed and performed by professionals.” And although Dwayne mentions paper cuts as the only occupational hazard associated with volunteer work, he and Patricia count numerous perks as well, including free cafeteria lunches, annual employee appreciation lunches and events, employee pins, free parking, and endless gratitude from hospital staff members. “We are shown appreciation and treated with the highest degree of respect,” said Patricia. “We love them, their kind words and hugs. It’s a really good feeling to be able to give of yourself to others.”According to Susan Bennett, volunteer services coordinator, more than 90 different volunteer positions are currently available at the hospital, in areas that range from groundskeeping to cafeteria work to clerical duties.“Our volunteers are just like our staff members,” she said. “We don’t always realize how much we depend and rely on them.” And according to Casio Jones, director of the wellness center, volunteers like the Trottmans are “a blessing.”Volunteer applications are available on the Florida Hospital Zephyrhills website at, or by calling (813) 779-6256.

Congratulations go out to the two lucky recipients. Of course, the many volunteers helped this day to run smoothly. Everyone had a specific job and all was handled very nicely. Many items were donated to the center for sale, and, in addition, there was a bake sale where the residents donated baked goods such as sugar-free items and regular baked goods. The table with all these goodies looked so tempting and, I am sure, all were delicious. Lunch was also served to hungry shoppers and, here once again, the aromas of the hot dogs and fries filled the air. We also had sales at many homes. It was fun just going from home to home and seeing the many wares that were put up for sale. There were large items like VCRs, fans and maybe a TV and there also were loads of smaller items like glassware, trays and so much more. Also there were clothes, such as t-shirts, skirts and other things to tickle your fancy. Anything and everything could be found if you looked hard enough. It was a fun and exciting day.

Before the dinner even started, because it was Vic Dyson’s birthday, a small dessert was brought out to him with one candle on it. We all joined in to sing happy birthday. It was lovely to celebrate a big and important day with a friend. Then Luella Wheeling mentioned each dish, so we knew what to anticipate, and lines formed. There were chicken wings, lasagna and vegetables and so much more. There was a separate table for desserts and, boy, there were plenty of those also. One thing was for certain and that was that people got enough to eat and were well satisfied. This was hosted by Luella Wheeling and Helene Rubenstein, while Judy Ellsworth was nice enough to help out. When the end of the meal came, there were more volunteers as Grand Horizons always has people pitch in to help. Before clean up started, Luella Wheeling put on a skit for all of us. This skit consisted of several things. First she put on a performance with her puppets named Clippo and Emily Ann. I don’t know about the others, but this performance had me in stitches and I couldn’t stop laughing. I did look around the room and I noticed that others felt the same way. A string broke from one of the marionettes and it didn’t stop Luella. She made a joke out of it and fixed the problem and then continued with the show. As they say, the show must go on. The second part of her performance had her applying make-up to her face. When I say make-up, no, there wasn’t real make-up but she did an excellent job of going through the motions — curling her eyebrows and applying mascara. She demonstrated putting the right amount of rouge on her face and this also brought a genuine smile to people. It was a very good job, and she certainly had the correct motions. The third part of her performance was “Ralphie.” This was a monologue about a mom asking her son to be patient. She asked him not to disturb mother while she was visiting with a neighbor. The different antics that were used on her face were quite funny and made the entire skit. The fourth and final part of this show was another monologue called “Nothing To Laugh At” and it was by Edgar Guest. How she remembered what to say and when and how to say it is something that I will always think about. This woman sure has talent. On March 31, we had a get-together of some people at Nancy and Eugene’s home. The purpose of this get-together was to celebrate the completion of the pictorial directory that was started quite some time ago. I do not know the exact date, but it was started before some “snowbirds” even came to Florida for the winter. As I mentioned in previous letters, a lot of work was put into this. I never knew how much but it soon became very obvious. Everyone who helped Nancy out had a specific job to do and eventually the completion of this task was done. We are now awaiting the directories but we just had to celebrate all the efforts. There were 15 people who came together for a good time and to talk about many things. We joked, told stories of long ago and just plain had a fun time. Each couple brought a little nibble and we had meatballs, deviled eggs, sausage and so much more. Thanks go to Eugene and Nancy Martin for undertaking a gathering, it was fun. 813-996-55305710 Land OLakes In 2010,with your efforts, WE RECYCLED 46,361 TONS OF PAPER This means we saved 788,137 trees.

Closer Look AN ADVERTISER PROFILE The last few years of Michelle Capps life have taken her from the worst personal tragedy to her highest achievement. In Dec. 2009 she lost her husband, Robert, to pancreatic cancer. I never planned to be a widow at 40,Ž said Michelle, owner of The T-Zone specialty shop in downtown Dade City. Robert was the love of my life and it was devastating to lose him.Ž A year after his death, Michelle was still in mourning and having trouble moving on. At the first anniversary of his passing, I felt Robert kicking me in the rear and telling me it was time to get back to work,Ž said Michelle. I began to think about what I wanted to do and thought it would be great if I could combine my love of sewing and quilting with a business.Ž From this vision The T-Zone was born, Michelles unique business that incorporates design, embroidery and sewing with affordable T-shirts and other items that sport the names of local teams and family gatherings. I saw what friends and family were paying for T-shirts and hats with logos from area sports teams and thought there must be a better way,Ž said Michelle, who thought the quality poor and prices too high. So she began researching vendors with quality fabrics and stylish designs that did not require her to buy large quantities up front. In January 2011 Michelle was ready to sell her custom embroidery, silk screens and transfers on hats, T-shirts and other items. Her first event was the Kumquat Festival in Dade City, followed by monthly downtown events in Dade City and Zephyrhills. Word quickly spread about the quality of Michelles T-shirts and her beautiful embroidery, screen printing and transfer work.My goal was to keep everything affordable by doing the customizing myself,Ž said Michelle, who has a knack for drawing and design. This combination of great pricing and quality products customized beautifully by Michelle resulted in The T-Zones business taking off in its first year. After a year of toting her wares to weekend events and working out of a trailer, Michelle was ready to open a permanent location. A perfect spot became available in downtown Dade City and The T-Zones first retail location officially opened April 12 with a Chamber of Commerce ribbon cutting that was attended by over 75 people. The cozy shop, located at the corner of 7th Street and Church Avenue, is in the heart of the citys historical shopping district. Merchandise includes everything from T-shirts in 50 different shades of color to embroidered Belvah bags and soft luggage made in colorful quilted fabric reminiscent of Vera Bradley, but at prices 50 to 75 percent less. The T-Zone also stocks trendy blinged outŽ purses, wallets and belts that are affordably priced. Their characteristic western look is popular with folks in rural East Pasco, as are the Hick LifeŽ brand of clothing found at The T-Zone, an officially sanctioned Hick LifeŽ retailer. Rounding out this western look are Montana West Sunglasses and flip-flops. Store hours are 9 to 5, Monday through Saturday; 12 to 4 on Sunday. Please stop and visit,Ž said Michelle. Id love to show you my store and help you come up with wonderful custom items that you can afford for your school, team or family.ŽMichelle Capps Turns Personal Tragedy To Success with The T-ZoneDade C i ty store offers custo m personal i zed i te m s at great pr i ces 14106 7th St. Dade City,FL 33525 www.thetzoneonline.com813-503-7359 The "T" Zone 813-909-2800 / THE LAKER/PARK NEWS M ay 2, 2012 20
