By Michael Hinman There is a baby boom hitting Florida Hospital Zephyrhills so large, even administrators are struggling to understand it. Over the past six months, the hospital on U.S. 301 in Zephyrhills welcomed 258 babies into the world, well above projections of just 100 for this point. And they're not expecting it to let up anytime soon. "There's a sense that we're doing a lot here at the hospital, and it's creating some excitement in the community," said Dr. Annette Williams, medical director for The Baby Place, the obstetrics unit at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. "We're making a lot of positive changes, and that means people are staying right here in town, and are not going somewhere else instead." Just a few weeks ago, The Baby Place moved out of its old unit home at the hospital and into temporary quarters on the second floor. That's because the maternity unit is getting a complete overhaul that includes significant equipment upgrades, new beds, and even an aesthetic refresh. The finished product, expected to open in August, will increase the number of labor rooms from five to eight, and postpartum The L AKER FREE The L AKER EAST PASCO EDITION JUNE 25, 2014 Text your zip code to ERTIME for ER wait times and locations.

The World War II Memorial, which has adorned the bandstand at the Historic Dade City Courthouse since Flag Day 1954, was restored using a more permanent granite facing, featuring the names of 1,855 Pasco County residents who served during the war. By Michael Hinman Pasco County has strict ordinances against temporary signs, but the proliferation of tall advertising flags known as "feather signs" has some county commissioners looking to make those ordinances even more restrictive. However, Pasco County commissioners said they would wait at least long enough for the homebuilding community to weigh in an industry that heavily depends on such temporary advertisement. "We're hoping that you'll allow us to put together a policy that provides us a pathway for compliance," said Jennifer Doerfel, executive vice president of the Tampa Bay Builders Association, which represents homebuilders locally. "We do not want to see blight, and we certainly don't want to see tattered signs, and we're part of this community, too. We want to make sure this looks great, because that's what attracts buyers to our homes." The signs have become common in front of businesses, especially on U.S. 41 through the center part of Pasco, where retailers fight to grab attention from a heavily traveled highway artery. They are usually anchored into the ground like flags, and are noticeable by how they freely flap in the wind. Pasco typically requires a temporary sign permit and a limit for how long they can be displayed. However, the signs usually addressed in that ordinance have been temporary banners, which are typically secured on all sides. Feather signs have been virtually overlooked by the ordinance, and county officials are suggesting implementing an outright ban on those types of signs. "Feather banners have two key issues, one being the visual impact," said Rebecca Stonefield of the county's planning and development department. "There are also general safety concerns associated with them. If they are not anchored appropriately, they could fly out and become a hazard." The planning and development department recommended not including the feather signs with other temporary signs the county allows. However, that could create some legal problems for the county in how a court might differentiate between the types of signs. "Do you believe that it's defensible, to attempt to defend in court, the difference between a banner and a feather banner?" Commissioner Ted Schrader asked. "I see it as being the same thing." See SIGNS, page9 MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Pasco County commissioners are looking to ban temporary signs like these, known as feather signs,' because of safety and aesthetic concerns. However, homebuilders have asked the commissioners if they can help craft a way to regulate the signs, while still allowing them to be effective advertising, especially for developing communities. Homebuilders compromise on feather signs MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTO Jennifer Wesolowski and Freddy Santiago welcomed their new son, Joseph Santiago, into the world at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills last week.

The issue has led to the resignation of the department's longest-serving secretary, Eric Shinseki, and has been fodder in political campaign ads and debates. In his seat as vice chair of the House Committee on Veterans Affairs, U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, has earned national media attention in recent months as he digs into what's causing delays at VA-run medical centers, and what can be done to fix it. The Palm Harbor Republican has since opened the door to hear from veterans themselves, inviting them to a town hall meeting June 5 in New Port Richey to find out other struggles facing those who have returned home from war. "We have an obligation to do whatever it takes to solve this problem," Bilirakis said. "We must make sure that our veterans have access to a broad range of services that meet their specific needs," he said. Last month, Bilirakis co-authored a letter with U.S. Rep. David Jolly, R-Indian Shores, to then-Secretary Shinseki asking him to change internal policies at the VA to allow veterans easier access to programs like the Non-VA Care Coordination program that would allow veterans to seek subsidized health care from medical providers outside of the VA system. Veterans who attended the recent town hall expressed some specific concerns with types of service they've received over the years some dating back more than a decade but many agreed problems are typically focused on routine care outside of the emergency room. "The system has been broke for a long time, since I got out of the service in 1973," said Michael O'Dell, who also is president of the Hillsborough County Veterans Council. The care he receives at the James A. Haley VA hospital near the University of South Florida's main campus has always been good, as long as it's been an emergency. "This last time has not been an emergency, and they've been screwing around with my knees," O' Dell said. "When the doctors decided that I can't take the pain anymore, they said it would take three or four months (for the surgery). Now with all this stuff going on (the controversy), they miraculously told me that they can operate in three weeks." One veteran, Peter Spatz, said he lives across the street from a VA medical center, and while he has had no problems with the care he receives once he gets there, where he really struggles is just trying to get in the front door. "When I was hearing on the news all the problems with the VA, I didn't really believe it," he said. "I really felt that facility just ran like a Swiss watch, and I never had a single issue." However, Spatz has a condition that requires treatment, and he couldn't see a doctor because they kept rescheduling him. He finally decided to reach out to the patient advocate line, but said no one was available to take his call. "I was so frustrated, I didn't know what to do," Spatz said. "If you have a question you need answered, or a problem resolved on the phone, the fact that they have the audacity to (not man the lines) is just beyond belief. Something has to change on that." Bilirakis has been a sponsor of H.R. 4810, which passed the U.S. House last week unanimously, and has been sent to the U.S. Senate. If passed, the resolution would expand access to health care and other medical facilities for veterans outside of the VA system. It also requires the VA to conduct an independent investigation of its operations and create a plan of action to correct them within 120 days. The Senate passed its own bill, which lawmakers say is similar to H.R. 4810, and both sides believe they can come together to finalize a bill to present to President Barack Obama.

Manion When the Holzbergers began learning about aquaponics five years ago, they didn't realize their interest would blossom into a full-fledged business. But that's exactly what happened. After attending a training session on aquaponics at MorningStar Fisherman in Dade City about four years ago, they began devising their own system at their Lutz home. "We never stopped building and changing and fixing and growing and learning," said Dustin Holzberger, who now operates The Urban Food Forest Inc., a business that manufactures and assembles aquaponic systems at 13219 Byrd Drive in Odessa. The family was aware there was a market for an aquaponic system that was simple and attractive, said Michele Holzberger, his wife and the company's co-owner. The family experimented with several variations before coming up with systems they decided to manufacture and sell. "The company then began building systems for people," Dustin Holzberger said. That's where their son, Colin, comes in. He installs the systems. In essence, aquaponics is the marriage of aquaculture raising fish and hydroponics, growing plants without soil. When the systems are tied together, the fish waste becomes a food source for the plants, which in turn provide a natural filter for the water where the fish live. The Holzbergers have developed different kinds of aquaponic systems. One, called a mini system, is the shape of the barrel. It has fish on the bottom tier and plants on the top. Another, called the Green Thumb System, has larger containers, which look more like tubs. Another variation, which is the largest, is a trough system connected to a fish tank. The company calls this one the Aquaponics Victory Garden, which they say is like having a farmer's market in your backyard. "The Urban Food Forest's vision is to integrate aquaponics into classrooms and backyards of our society, where we can build a food forest, one aquaponic farm at a time," according to the company's website. The Holzbergers, who have three children, grow their own vegetables. They want others to be able to do so as well. "What we wanted was for every person to have the confidence and the ability to grow some of their own food that is healthy," Michele Holzberger said. The systems they manufacture have been appealing, in particular, to schools, she said. "It's something they can keep indoors," she said. "And, it's something that by incorporating aquaponics in a science class, they can actually forego expensive labs and other teaching materials because this is so rich. It can be plants and roots for younger kids. It can be water chemistry and pH for older students. "It can be just teaching children where food comes from and how to begin to think about food as something, that normally, throughout history people have grown themselves." The systems include graphics that provide information about aquaponics and maintenance instructions for the system. Word is getting out about the Odessa company. "We just go an order yesterday from Virginia Tech. They want to put one in their lobby," Dustin Holzberger said. The trend toward sustainable practices is growing, and people are interested in growing their own foods, Michele Holzberger said. "Organic vegetables are so expensive," she said. "And now, people are eating kale, Swiss chard and greens, instead of vitamins," she said. "They're growing their healthy food right in their backyard, and they're putting it in their salads and smoothies, and they can feel confident that it's clean and good for them." Colin Holzberger, who delivers and sets up the systems, said people want to know what they can grow and how to care for the fish. They also have questions about water chemistry. Aquaponics offers many advantages, Dustin Holzberger said. "You're gardening without weeding, without tilling, without watering. Basically, you took a lot of work out of gardening," he said. "Yet, you still get the same produce, if not more." Besides having the location in Odessa, the company also has an affiliation with Holloway Farm Supply at 3036 Land O' Lakes Blvd., in Land O' Lakes.

These troughs are filled with plants that are grown through a system that combines aquaculture and hydroponics, so the plants can benefit from the nutrients produced from the fish waste, and the fish can benefit from the plants filtering the water.

Manion Legislation adopted by the Florida Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Rick Scott on June 9 will make college more affordable for undocumented workers. The governor's signature signals the end of an 11-year effort to allow undocumented workers who have completed at least three years in a Florida high school the opportunity to attend Florida state colleges at the in-state tuition rate. The students, however, must enroll in the postsecondary school within 24 months of graduation. Margarita Romo, executive director of Farmworkers Self-Help Inc., in Dade City, played a major role in advocating for the change, and is pleased by the Legislature's action. "We're very happy that we got what we got. It's been a long time coming," Romo said. For years, she's been taking undocumented students to Tallahassee to meet with lawmakers to explain why it is so important to allow them to attend Florida colleges without paying out-of-state tuition. Throughout that effort, Romo has repeated this refrain: "You can pick enough oranges to pay in-state tuition, but you cannot pick enough oranges to pay out-of-state tuition." With the adoption of this legislation, Florida will become the 20th state to offer some sort of in-state tuition to students brought to the United States illegally, according to The New York Times. Romo credited state House Speaker Will Weatherford's support for playing a key role in gaining the legislation's passage. "The speaker of the house really knocked himself out," said Romo, who was inducted last year into the Florida Civil Rights Hall of Fame for her work in advocating for the needs of migrant farmworkers and immigrants. Romo took three young men in to meet the Wesley Chapel Republican to discuss the issue, and Weatherford told her that made an impression. "I was actually in the hospital when the speaker of the house called me," she said. "Of course, I didn't answer the phone because I was in the hospital. I just had my fourth heart attack. He called and left a message saying he had a surprise. "He said, I just want you to know that I am really going to support in-state tuition.' That certainly gave my heart a lift. And, he kept his word." When the legislation passed, Weatherford issued a statement that said lawmakers were making history. "For many years, children who are here through no fault of their own have waited for the opportunity to fully realizing their dreams," Weatherford said in the statement. "Today, the Florida Legislature put those dreams into reach." While pleased with the legislation, Romo would like to see an amendment in the future that would remove the provision that limits the in-state tuition to those who have graduated from a Florida high school within the past two years. The battle to make this change began more than a decade ago and the two-year limit leaves out too many people who simply will never be able to attend college, without the lower rate, Romo said. FILE PHOTO Margarita Romo, executive director of Farmworkers Self-Help Inc., is pleased that the state legislature has passed a bill that will allow undocumented students to qualify for in-state tuition at Florida colleges. Legislature grants in-state tuition for undocumented students The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report Gulfside Hospice & Pasco Palliative Care recently received a check for $24,000 from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office Mounted Posse. It was raised during the sixth annual Ride for Hospice in March at Diamond B Ranch in Dade City. "On behalf of our organization, I would like to personally thank the posse for holding this event to benefit Gulfside," Gulfside president and chief executive Linda Ward said, in a release. "Gulfside Hospice is forever grateful for all the work the Pasco Sheriff's Mounted Posse has put into this event, not just this year, but over the past six years." One of those taking part in the check presentation ceremony with Ward and Sheriff Chris Nocco was Sue Touchston, who personally raised just over $4,840. Also there was Paul Correia, who had a separate music fundraiser for Gulfside called Paulie Palooza. Judy Tyler, Kym Corkum and Margaret Bushell organized the original Ride for Hospice in 2009. Tyler and Corkum developed the idea after participating in Gulfside's Hike for Hospice. Since then, the event has raised a little more than $100,000 for patient care at Gulfside. The Mounted Posse has served Pasco County since 1995. All members of the horse-riding group must pass and maintain several qualification standards to enable horse and rider to safely work in close contact with the public. The Mounted Posse is comprised of civilian volunteers, while the Mounted Unit is filled with sworn deputies. Both are a part of the Citizen Support Services section of the Pasco Sheriff's Office. For more information on the group, visit Gulfside Hospice was first licensed in 1989, and serves more than 350 patients daily.

By Shauna McKinnon CEO, Bayfront Health Dade City Because of the Affordable Care Act, most health insurance plans today cover many preventive services that will help you stay healthy. This includes plans available from the Exchange/Marketplace, most private insurances and employer plans. Best of all, most preventative services are free meaning no copayments or deductibles are required, as long as a network doctor delivers them. The goal of preventive care screenings is for people to stay as healthy as possible and hopefully prevent them from needing serious medical services down the road. Getting the right screenings and medical tests at the right time can help prevent many illnesses, and stop others before they become more serious, and sometimes even before they present symptoms. Depending on age, gender and other risk factors, your doctor can tell you when it's time for preventative screenings. These include screenings for anemia, diabetes, breast cancer and those that can detect cancer and other diseases at their earliest, most treatable stages. Preventative tests also screen for high blood pressure and high cholesterol valuable information your doctor needs to help prevent a stroke or heart attack. Depending on your medical history, your doctor may also suggest tests, screenings or counseling for the following diabetes, depression. Obesity, hearing or vision loss and sexually transmitted diseases. There's even more good news for women. Most insurance plans allow for preventive care screenings, tests and supplies that help with family planning and pregnancy. These services include annual well-woman check-up, contraceptives and birth control counseling, screenings during pregnancy for a variety of conditions, and breastfeeding supplies, support and counseling. Most insurance plans also cover preventive care services for children. Depending on the child's age and risk factors, services include: Screenings for autism, high blood pressure, some cancers, depression, developmental disorders, lipid disorders, hearing problems, blood diseases, HIV, hypothyroidism, lead levels, obesity, PKU, and vision problems. Behavioral assessments Fluoride and iron supplement Height, weight and body mass index measurements Immunizations for a variety of conditions Medical history Obesity counseling Oral health risk assessment Sexually transmitted infection prevention counseling and screening Tuberculin testing If your insurance covers preventive care services at no charge, skipping them is like leaving money on the table. We encourage you to talk with your doctor about how to get the most out of your insurance plan. And if you don't have a doctor, we can help you with that, too. Simply call the Bayfront Health Dade City free physician referral service at 877-362-5321 or visit Please note: Preventive care services often depend on age and risk factors. Depending on your health insurance, preventive care services may be covered without your having to pay a copayment, coinsurance or meet your deductible. This applies only when you use your plan's network providers. Medicaid benefits vary by state. To confirm your level of coverage for preventive care and to make sure your insurance is on your doctor's list of accepted plans, check with your insurance provider, employer or your doctor's office.

June 25, 2014 8 Southport Springs honors veterans with new memorial By Michael Hinman There has always been a strong connection between Zephyrhills and veterans who have served their country, dating right back to when its first cornerstone was laid as a retirement community for aging Civil War veterans. The tradition of honoring the men and women who served continues to this day, now in Southport Springs off Chancey Road just outside Zephyrhills, where veterans including more than 200 who live in the community itself were honored with a new memorial. Summer rains held off just long enough June 14 for local dignitaries and more than 300 people to dedicate the memorial, located next to Southport Springs' clubhouse, that recognize the people who served both abroad and even at home over a century's worth of conflicts. "Thank you for your sacrifice," said U.S. Rep. Gus Bilirakis, R-Palm Harbor, who attended the dedication ceremony. "We owe you so very much, our true American heroes." The memorial includes six service flags representing various branches of the military, as well as the American flag, and a second flag remembering prisoners of war. It is supported by a large brick wall with two benches, as well as flowerbeds to represent the red stripes on the nation's flag. "Look around, and you'll see representation of the U.S.A. past, present and future," said Douglas Baulch, one of the people who led the way to build the memorial. "The wall was done for all conflicts of America. It will be a living memory for all of us." The monument is designed to recognize those who served in the armed forces, as well as those who supported the war effort from home. "It's really an honor and a privilege to represent this county," Bilirakis said. "We all care so much, and I appreciate that very much." The memorial is located at 3737 Southport Springs Parkway in Zephyrhills. The new memorial at Southport Springs came about after residents there learned more than 200 people who call the Zephyrhills community home were also veterans. It features six service flags, as well as the American flag and a prisoner of war flag. Doug Baulch, one of the people who helped spearhead the construction of a veterans memorial at Southport Springs, speaks to nearly 300 people who gathered for the new memorial's dedication June 14. MICHAEL HINMAN/STAFF PHOTOS Saturday's dedication at Southport Springs brought out veterans from all the branches, including those who served as members of the U.S. Marine Corps.

June 25, 2014 9 rooms from seven to nine. And even that might not be enough to handle the uptick in babies. The Zephyrhills hospital did anticipate at least a small rise in births at the hospital after Bayfront Health Dade City announced last year it was closing its maternity unit. One of the contributing factors was a 33 percent decline in births at the hospital between 2008 and 2012, according to published reports. The Baby Place got ready, however, by calling various doctor offices in the area, and trying to get a count of the number of expecting mothers who were likely to choose Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. The results convinced the hospital to increase its maternity staff, but the baby census was actually on the low end. "Even with all the calling we did, we had even more people come in than we thought we would," said Catalina Sierra, who manages The Baby Place with Williams. "We had a lot of people just walking in, saying they were supposed to go to Tampa, or they were supposed to go to Brooksville, but instead, Here I am.'" The upgrades to The Baby Place also gave the hospital a chance to centralize many of its women's health services, including mother/baby, gynecology, breast care, heart care, and health and wellness. At the same time, the hospital also changed how the department was managed, going to one led by a physician instead of the more traditional nurse-led department. The biggest advantage to that is much stronger communication between the nursing staff, who work the front lines, and the physicians. "There's always that gap between the physicians and the nurses, and it's difficult sometimes," Williams said. "By having a physician in charge, it's a lot easier to talk to the physician and make your case for the nurse. Communication is such an integral part of health care, and we're trying to make it easier for that communication to happen, and not put the stress on the nurses." The difference in the new system has already been felt, Sierra said, and it's a positive one where she enjoys working with Williams. "She's such a great doctor. She knows the physician's mind, and she knows the nurse's mind. That way, she can relate to the doctors and relate to the nurses, and that's just what we need." The maternity market is highly competitive, especially as more and more hospitals open within driving distance of East Pasco County, creating plenty of choice for mothers. While proximity might play a strong role in the selection of a hospital, other issues such as quality of care, level of equipment sophistication, and even how comfortable and calming the rooms are, are important considerations. Florida Hospital Zephyrhills says it is experiencing an influx of moms, even before renovations are complete. Serving women who are having babies is an excellent way to introduce the hospital to younger people, especially for many mothers who are spending their first night in one delivering a child. "For a lot of women, this is their very first encounter with a hospital," said Cheryl Kennison, the marketing director at Florida Hospital Zephyrhills. "When people are choosing to stay here when they could've easily gone somewhere else, it says a lot about the team, and what everyone is doing here." County attorney Jeffrey Steinsnyder disagreed, however. "They are two different styles of advertising, and there is a physical difference," he said. "It's easy to define." Pasco is a community with hundreds of new homes under construction, many in growing communities. The builders depend on attracting attention from the main road, especially since their product might not be as apparent because it is hidden inside a neighborhood, Doerfel said. "The reason that you see as many feather signs as you do is that it is the last option that we have to be compliant with the sign ordinance," Doerfel said, referring to the quantity and time limits for temporary banners. "We have to be able to attract people to our communities, and most of these communities are not even on the GPS. Most of the people are finding model centers through signs." Mike Southward, the local division president of Beazer Homes, said unlike standard retailers, homebuilders typically don't jump onto the radar of someone looking for a new house until after they are inside a neighborhood they want to move to. "If you look into the buyer's psyche, they do a lot of research when buying a home," he said. "They look for things like schools and shopping and lifestyle, and they will go and drive around." It's not until they start driving the area that they start looking for builders and communities, and that's where having good signage helps get their attention, Southward said. "If we don't have an opportunity to direct them into our communities, we lost an opportunity to gain a customer," he said. How the county handles signs in the near future is something the commission should explore slowly and deliberately, Commissioner Pat Mulieri said. "We receive tons of email, and we're pushing the idea that we want to be premier," she said. "We don't want to be shoddy looking, but we also want business, who are also applauding the fact that now we have people buying houses. I don't know what the problem would be to put this off for a month or six weeks to get other ideas and work from there." The commission will look at a potential revision of the temporary sign ordinance again at its July 22 meeting.

June 25, 2014 10 AROUND THE PARKS By Helene Rubenstein Grand Horizons A year ago last April, we came home from spending the winter in Florida. We were so upset that we left the Sunshine State, as we always seem to have a great time there. We never have to stop and think, "What should I do next?" Believe me, we know. So, now I am home and decided to take a walk around the block. Walking in our neighborhood in East Hartford, Connecticut, isn't at all like walking in our development in Florida, as the sidewalks in Florida are not cracked and bumpy as much as they are in East Hartford. I just have to get used to being in Connecticut once again. We have six months and a half months to go before heading back to Florida. I had heard something about a fire happening a few weeks ago and, on the corner of Trinity Lane and Roxbury, and found the house that had the fire. It was a ranch-style house that was demolished and a sign put on the door saying that it was condemned. Here are many houses in this community, and the bulk of them are ranch-style houses with five rooms. Several houses have garages built adjoining the house, and some of the homes have porches. It is a peaceful and quiet neighborhood, or it used to be. Anyway, we expected another ranch-style house, but it is not what we got. For the longest time several months in fact work on the new house wasn't started. Maybe it was the weather, either too hot or too humid. No one knows, but eventually work started. As they say, if the weather isn't good in New England, just wait and it will change. It finally did. It was slow work, and during this time, my husband and I went on several mini trips. We took a trip to New York in the middle of May to attend a family function, and we also took a trip to see some friends in Maine in the early party of June. We had a glorious time in Maine visiting and seeing sights. There were some day trips thrown in, plus a trip to Saybrook, Connecticut, where some of our relatives live close to the beach. We were busy, but we also like to keep a progress report on the house that was being rebuilt and also being expanded. Whenever we could, we tended to look to see what was going on at the house. We tried to keep ourselves busy anticipating Florida, but we were still amazed when October came. My goodness, now we are able to count weeks instead of months. The summer went on and one day, lo and behold, the house looked completed, as it was a lovely ranch style. I didn't think there would be more being built, but believe it or not, they started to build a second story. At first, I looked at it and didn't know what to think, but as the work progressed, it took the shape of a lovely two-story house. When work first started, since most of the houses were ranch style, I honestly thought that it would end up like the others but, no, it stands out. It is in a class by itself. I would like to add that when we came home this year from Florida, we went to see the house and it is so lovely. Guess they knew what they were doing when they built it as a two-story house.
