Work continues on installing pipeline along Lutz Lake Fern Road, with the road narrowed down to one lane near North Dale Mabry Highway while construction continues. The county is completing the $5.4 mil- lion project to connect the Manors of Crystal Lakes to a new 12-inch water line. The goal is to improve the reliability of water supply for the subdivision, said Richard Kirby, section manager for Hillsborough County’s capital improvement program. The project involves 4.5 miles of pipeline, Kirby said. It creates a looped sys- tem, giving Manors of Crystal Lake residents a backup in the event of any water line breaks or other disruptions. The water flow also will be improved with the new line, bringing it up to the cur- rent standards for fire protection. As work progresses, flagmen are direct- ing traffic down to one lane on a portion of Lutz Lake Fern Road near North Dale Mabry Highway as crews work along the right of way of the narrow road. Installing the pipeline along that stretch is a challenge be- cause of existing utilities in the area, Kirby said. New water pipes already have been in- stalled on U.S. 41 as part of the project. Once the work on Lutz Lake Fern Road is completed between U.S. 41 and North Dale Mabry Highway, testing of the water line will begin. The biggest change is that customers will receive water that uses chloramines in the final disinfection stages instead of chlorine, Kirby said. New water lines in Lutz community B.C.

A lot of those details were unveiled lastweek when Newland Communities vicepresident Tom Panaseny presented some ofthe first details of the recently resurrectedBexley Ranch project that will includeabout 1,700 homes over the next five years.

The massive development, which willstretch north past Tower Road, was put onhold several years ago after the housing mar-ket crashed and new home constructioncame to a halt.

For thousands of years before JohannesGutenberg invented the printing press,books were printed and illustrated by hand— a painstaking process often completedwithin the confines of monastery walls.

The St. John’s Bible, a modern version ofthat ancient practice commissioned by St.John’s Abbey and University, depicts the firsthandwritten illuminated Bible of a monu-mental size commissioned by a BenedictineMonastery in more than 500 years.

The original volumes are housed at theHill Museum and Manuscript Library on thecampus of St. John’s Abbey and University inCollegeville, Minnesota.

But 299 reproductions of the work havebeen made, and two volumes are on loanthis year to Saint Leo University, Holy NameMonastery and Saint Leo Abbey.

The illuminated volumes and other reli-gious artworks were the focus of adiscussion led by the Rev. Isaac Camacho,abbot of Saint Leo Abbey, which is aBenedictine community of monks in St. Leo.

The abbot’s talk, “The Art of Spirituality,”covered not only the use of art to inspirespiritual understanding and growth, but alsothe artful pursuit of the spiritual life.

“Who created me? What is there afterlife? What is God? How is God?” Camachosaid. “God’s beauty does not remainwrapped up in himself.”

Through his creation of the universe, theabbot added, “our God has already demon-strated that natural things are fundamentallygood.”

Art is an expression of mankind’s cre-ative nature, he added.

“Every single human being knows thatthere is something creative inside of us and

art is an expression of that,” Camacho said.“We cannot deny that art will lead us to tryto understand that there is beauty beyondourselves.”

He also believes that being artistic is anintrinsic part of being human.

“If you say you are not an artist, you arelying to yourself,” Camacho said.

For some people, the art can be as sim-ple as a stick figure. For others, it can be apoem.

Pursuing that artistic expression, andusing it to help express spiritual discovery,helps people feel more connected to theirspiritual life, the abbot added.

He encouraged people to feel free tomark up their Bibles with illustrations or

other notations, to help make it truly theirown.

“Your spiritual journey will be nourishedwhen you discover something beautiful,”Camacho said.

The St. John’s Bible was completed by ateam of calligraphers led by Donald Jackson,the calligrapher to Queen Elizabeth II. Thecalligraphers collaborated with 80 contem-porary artists who illuminated the work.

The volumes are made from traditionalmaterials such as calfskin, ancient ink, goldand silver leaf. Calligraphers used quill pens,fashioned from goose, turkey and swanfeathers.

The reproductions on display at the uni-

versity’s library are two of the seven vol-umes of the Heritage Edition of the St. John’sBible — a limited edition of full-size facsimilereproductions of the original work.

The public is invited to see the sacredworks of art, which are on display in thelobby of the Daniel A. Cannon MemorialLibrary, on Saint Leo University’s campus at33701 State Road 52 in St. Leo.

The two volumes that are on display in-clude the first five books of the OldTestament and the Gospels of Matthew,Mark, Luke and John from the NewTestament. Pages of the text are turned on aregular basis to new illuminated passages inthe volumes.

Saint Leo abbot discusses the art of spirituality

Reproductions of two volumes of the St. John’s Bible are on display at Cannon MemorialLibrary at the University of Saint Leo this year to help celebrate the 125th anniversary ofSaint Leo Abbey, Holy Name Monastery and the university.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF SAINT LEO UNIVERSITYThe Rev. Isaac Camacho recently gave a talkon ‘The Art of Spirituality’ at Saint LeoUniversity, describing how artistic expres-sion and beauty can play a role in one’sspiritual life.

LUTZ, ODESSA, LAND O’ LAKES, WESLEY CHAPEL, NEW TAMPA, ZEPHYRHILLS, DADE CITYServing Pasco since 1981 / Serving Lutz since 1964

www.LakerLutzNews.com September 24, 2014 3A

By B.C. [email protected]

When visitors drop by downtown DadeCity, its stately historic courthouse, uniqueshops and good restaurants likely will im-press them.

But there’s so much more to Dade City’sstory, and Madonna Jervis Wise has capturedthat through 200 photographs of the peopleand places in this city that initially wasknown as Fort Dade.

Wise began working on the volume abouta year ago. She’d done another book called“Zephyrhills” for Arcadia Publishing, and theSouth Carolina publisher approached her tosee if she had an interest in writing a bookabout Dade City.

Wise wasn’t sure initially if she wanted totake it on. But her family encouraged her topursue the opportunity, and Wise decided tomeet with some local leaders to see if they’dlike to have a book about their communitypublished.

John Moors, the executive director of theDade City Chamber of Commerce, greetedthe idea with enthusiasm and set up a meet-ing for Wise with the city’s developmentdirector. She also met with the Dade CityPreservation Advisory Board, which encour-aged her to write the book and providedinvaluable suggestions, she said.

Wise said her husband Ernie played an in-strumental role, too.

The book includes photographs of every-thing from old railroad depots to statelyhomes, from ballet dancers to orange pack-ers. It includes photographs of the sons anddaughters of Dade City, who shaped the com-munity and played an instrumental role inPasco County and beyond.

“Dade City is a rich historical hub,” Wisesaid. “For many, many decades, this countywas run by Pasco High graduates.”

The book showcases the community’s di-versity, covering the history of theAfrican-American community and its migrantfarmworkers.

Wise used information and photographsshe gleaned from a multitude of sources. JeffMiller of the West Pasco Historical Societyprovided about 3,000 photos for her to con-sider from his collection.

She also used photos from the collectionsof Helen Eck Sparkman and of Oliver andBarbara DeWitt, who provided them to EddieHerrmann, one of the authors of “TheHistoric Places of Pasco County.”

The Pasco County Genealogical Society

and the Tampa-Hillsborough County PublicLibrary System’s Genealogical Collection, aswell as the librarians, were invaluable re-sources for the work as well, Wise said.

She used photographs from The MemoryProject, produced by the Florida govern-ment.

The book’s photographs convey the city’shistory through its people, residences,churches, social and civic clubs, and com-merce. It points out that Pasco Packing, laterknown as Lykes Pasco, was the largest orange

packing plant in the world, in the days beforefreezes, blight and development wiped outmuch of Florida’s citrus industry.

The photographs also show homes ofearly residents, with many of the structuresstill standing today.

“My husband photographed many of thehouses,” Wise said, noting some of the photoshad to be taken more than once, to be surethat alarm signs and air conditioners didn’tshow up in the frame.

When they were out in the neighbor-hoods taking the photographs, people wouldapproach them and ask what they weredoing, Wise said. When she told them aboutthe book, she said, “they would add otherpieces to the story. It was great. It was justgreat.”

The actual work of culling photographs,writing captions and arranging the layoutwas a gargantuan task. But Wise enjoyedlearning about Dade City’s history and spend-ing time with the people who helped on the

project.Besides Herrmann, other primary sources

included William G. Dayton and J. ThomasTouchton.

“I probably talked to Eddie (Herrmann)nearly every day,” Wise said. “And Bill is a realstoryteller. He can give you the feel for thedifferent eras. He knew a lot of the inside ofwhat was going on.”

Touchton, a Dade City native and leaderof the effort to establish The Tampa BayHistory Center, also provided valuable in-sights, she said. Touchton has an internationalreputation for the collection of maps he’s ac-quired, and has fond recollections of DadeCity.

“He told me the most fabulous storiesabout growing up there,” she said.

As she conducted her research, Wise wasstruck by the realization that Dade City re-mains a cohesive community, somethingthat’s not all that common in the 21st centu-ry.

As people page through the volume, Wisehopes it will inspire them to learn moreabout Dade City.

“The book is intended to be an invitationto learn more about Dade City and serve asan enticement to walk through ChurchAvenue, visit the historic courthouse, dine ina vintage café, or visit the Pioneer FloridaMuseum and Village,” Wise writes in the ac-knowledgements section of the book.“History must be shared to pass it on to thenext generation.”

In 2001, Scott Fink took a gamble and de-cided to open a Hyundai dealership in NewPort Richey. At the time, Hyundai did nothave the best reputation for dependability,and accounted for about three of 100 everynew car sold.

Since then, Hyundai has become one ofthe most popular overseas brands inAmerica, and Fink has expanded his car em-pire to include Hyundai, Mazda andChevrolet dealerships in Wesley Chapel, anda planned Volkswagen dealership on StateRoad 56 across from Mini of Wesley Chapel.

So what does Fink have up his sleeve onland next to his proposed dealership? He’snot talking — he didn’t return a call forcomment from The Laker/Lutz News — butit’s now a $1 million gamble.

S&D Giant Real Estate LLC, a company,which lists Fink as its sole manager, closedon nearly 1.6 acres of land on State Road 56,just off Silver Maple Parkway on Aug. 26. Theprice was $1 million, something that mightappear like a steep price for vacant land. Butit’s a $400,000 discount from what EthanAllen Retail LLC paid for the property in2006, according to Pasco County propertyrecords.

Ethan Allen, a Connecticut-based furni-ture chain with locations in Citrus Park andBrandon, had announced in late 2005 itwould build an 18,000-square-foot show-room on the site. It was supposed to openin 2006, and compete with the less-expen-sive Rooms To Go that opened down theroad on Bruce B. Downs Boulevard.

However, the housing market crashed,and couches that cost as much as a semes-ter at the University of South Florida simplywere no longer in demand.

Unlike the Lowe’s on State Road 54 nearLand O’ Lakes Boulevard, Ethan Allen neverresurrected its plans to build on the site, de-spite holding the land for nearly a decade. Aspokeswoman for Ethan Allen confirmed toThe Laker/Lutz News on Monday that theproject was indeed dead.

“I believe that the new use will be auto-motive,” Ann Zaccaria, vice president of realestate for Ethan Allen, said in an email.

In his annual report filed last June ad-dressing the entire Cypress Creekdevelopment of regional impact area that in-cludes this parcel, Skinner Bros. Realtypresident A.C. “Chip” Skinner III did notmention the pending sale to Fink. He stilllisted it as a closed sale to Ethan Allen,where 18,000 square feet of retail rights arestill planned.

Fink is under contract to buy more than5 acres of land immediately to the southeastof the parcel, where he plans to build aVolkswagen dealership complete with anearly 30,000-square-foot showroom.

The lot Fink has closed on still is set for aretail store, but it’s not clear if that’s what hestill plans to do, said Dawn Sutton withPasco County’s planning and developmentdepartment. No new paperwork for the sitehas been filed with the county.

“There is an agreement for (theVolkswagen parcels) for up to 46,000square feet of retail entitlements,” Suttonsaid. “That’s probably a 22,000-square-footbuilding plus maybe a car wash, and somesupporting retail.”

Land proposed for the Volkswagen deal-ership has yet to change hands, but if Fink’spurchase of the adjacent land sets a newprecedent, then he could spend more than$6 million for the adjacent lot once that dealfinally closes.

The Better Business Bureau is warningagainst a company it says could be trying totake money from schools around the coun-try.

The consumer organization received anumber of complaints about ScholasticSchool Supply, which the BBB says is operat-ing similar to the “Yellow Pages Scam” lastyear that allegedly bilked more than $14 mil-lion from small businesses and churchesbefore being shut down by the FederalTrade Commission.

BBB officials say Scholastic SchoolSupply is sending false invoices to schoolsand school districts throughout the countryin the amount of $647.50 each for what itsays is the bulk purchase of textbooks that

were never requested or received. The only contact information on the in-

voices is an email address the companydoes not answer, and a phone numberwhich routes to a series of voicemail boxes.

The physical mail address goes to eitherNew Jersey or Nevada, but the BBB has notbeen able to find any corporate filings forthe company in either state.

Complaints have come from 22 statesthroughout the country, as well as morethan 2,300 inquiries about the operation.BBB says it’s now receiving up to 15 com-plaints each day.

Schools are urged not to pay the invoice,but instead to contact the FTC at (877) 382-4357, or at FTC.gov.

For more information on the BetterBusiness Bureau, visit BBB.org.

Schools may be target of potential new scam

“If anything, it’s an improvement in thesmell and taste of the water because there’sless chemical in there,” he said.

Customers should be aware that waterthat contains chloramines should not beused in home aquariums, fishponds orhome kidney dialysis, Kirby said. Water usedfor those purposes should be treated or fil-tered to remove the chloramines.

Chloramines have been used to disinfectwater since the 1930s, Kirby said. They areused to disinfect water throughout thecounty’s water system.

So far, most of the calls coming into thecounty about the project have been in-quiries about whether nearby properties canhook onto the system, Kirby said. Propertiesthat are adjacent to the water pipe can hookin, but they must be directly next to it.

He does not expect any changes in waterpressure for customers. The rates will notchange either.

The Manors of Crystal Lakes already is apart of the county’s water system, but hasbeen served by two wells. Those wells and anearby chlorination plant will be shut downonce the new waterline begins operation.

Society and the H. Lee Moffitt CancerCenter & Research Institute.

One bust shows her upper torso beforetreatment began. The second records her ather lowest point in her cancer battle. Thethird shows her torso after reconstructivesurgery.

The story of Tucker’s fight for her lifebegan like many other stories about breastcancer: She found a lump in her right breastduring a routine monthly self-exam.

Ironically, it appeared at a time in her lifewhen she’d never felt healthier. She was 46,and she and Ben routinely worked out.

When she found the lump, Tucker madean appointment with her doctor to check itout as part of an annual exam. That exam, aswell as a mammogram, showed it was acyst, which didn’t surprise Tucker becauseshe’d had cysts before.

So, Tucker went about her daily life,working as an online business professor anddeveloping online courses.

As time went on, though, the lump grew.It was right at her bra line and was becom-ing uncomfortable. She also felt two smallerlumps.

Still, she had no plans to go back to thedoctor before her annual check.

“My husband kept nagging me,” Tuckersaid. “‘You need to go get this checked.’”

But she didn’t until he hurt his foot, andnow it was Tucker urging him to see a doc-tor. They made a deal: He would go for hisfoot, if she went for her breast.

On the return visit, the doctor said thelump was larger, but was still a cyst. But afterTucker told the doctor it was bothering her,the doctor referred her to a breast surgeonto get the lump drained.

The breast surgeon – Dr. Kimberly Apple– wanted an ultrasound. That led to addition-al diagnostics, a core biopsy, and a needlebiopsy on six cancer tumors.

The doctor told Tucker she would callher with the results, either way. That callcame on a Friday morning, April 26, 2013.

“When I picked up the phone, I hear hersay, ‘I’m sorry.’ I hear her voice crack,” Tuckersaid. Then she starts with the doctor jargon.”

She heard the doctor talking, but could-n’t process what she was saying.

“Everything kind of stops in your world,”Tucker said. “It was so surreal.”

The doctor asked Tucker if she had anyquestions. Tucker had one: “Is it treatable?”

Yes, but it would require extensive treat-ment.

Tucker’s cancer was so advanced thatshe had to undergo chemotherapy beforesurgery. That’s when she decided to haveher brother do the ceramic bust.

“I called him and I said, ‘I want to remem-ber how I am today,’” she said.

A week later, she was undergoingchemotherapy.

“It’s awful. There’s no way to sugarcoatit,” Tucker said, noting she went through fiverounds of chemo in six months.

Next, she had a nipple-sparing bilateralmastectomy.

She planned to do reconstruction, butlost so much blood she had to have a trans-fusion, which led to an infection.

“I was down to 95 pounds,” Tucker said.“I’m bald at this point. I have no eyebrows,no eyelashes. My skin is sagging, and I wasextremely depressed. I was in a really, reallydark place.

“I called Paul and said, ‘I want to do an-other casting.’

“He’s like, ‘Really?’”She said she wanted to remember this

stage of the battle, too. That casting wasdone on Feb. 26.

When she got over the infection, she pur-sued reconstruction again. After that wasdone, Tucker did another body casting toshow her upper torso after reconstruction.That casting was done on Aug. 16.

“It just kind of brought the whole thingtogether,” Tucker said.

She still had no intention of making the

ceramic busts public. But that changed afterher brother, who had exhibited some of hisart works at Alchemy Art Lounge in TarponSprings, told the owner about the castingshe’d done for his sister.

“The owner got real quiet and said, ‘Mymother has breast cancer,’” Tucker said.

Then the owner suggested having a PinkParty in October, and to donate the pro-ceeds to the American Cancer Society andMoffitt. Tucker agreed to have her ceramicbusts on display because they help conveythe stages she has been through.

“There really is no better way to illustratethe story than that,” said Tucker, who is now 48.

She and her husband have two sons, Van— who just graduated from the Universityof South Florida with a degree in chemicalengineering — and Adam, a sophomore atUSF, who is pursuing the same degree.

Tucker said she never would have cho-sen to walk the path, yet she knows it hasyielded new insights.

“I am a different person today because ofthis,” Tucker said. “I am much more focusedon what’s important in life, and it’s not chas-ing a promotion.”

Ranch, the longer-term goal is to be just asbig as the project expands east towardSunlake Boulevard. Initial plans also includean elementary school, and Newland’s contri-bution to the construction of Tower Road toSunlake Boulevard.

The project also will include a networkof trails that would provide miles of bothpaved and dirt pathways for residents. Theidea is to eventually connect with theSuncoast Trail, possibly by going underneaththe highway.

The trails, Panaseny said, would show offthe nearly 1,000 acres of conservation landthe Bexley Ranch project already has setaside. And in a sales pitch to some of the po-tential buyers in the audience, the developersaid views of those pockets of nature won’t

be limited to the highest bidders.“I look at things like wetlands, and you’ll

see developers who will try to price thoseviews so that only an individual home canlook at a wetland,” Panaseny said. “You won’tsee a lot of that with us. We try to make thatpublic space, because we don’t just want tohave individuals look at that, we want thecommunity to be looking at that.”

The entire project, once all the phases arecompleted, could go as high as 6,000 homes,Panaseny said. However, that all depends onhow Pasco County does in the future whenit comes to attracting new residents.

“You’re talking about 20 years-plus, andthat’s really hard to even speculate on thatright now,” he said. “We have to start withwhat we know, and what we know rightnow is that there are 1,700 acres there thatwill keep everybody busy for four or fiveyears.”

Internship takes local student to Amazon jungleBy Michael [email protected]

Those first nights in the Amazon rainfor-est were tough ones for Kenny Quayle.Especially when he was trying to get a fewhours of sleep.

“There are strange sounds that comefrom the jungle, and some of them werefrom animals I never wanted to come face-to-face with,” he said. “There were thousandsof bugs everywhere at night, and you couldhear each and every one of them.”

Quayle spent a month in Peru living onthe edge of the Amazon. He was there work-ing on a conservation team that was part ofAmazonia Expeditions, an adventure compa-ny led by local biologist Paul Beaver, and hiswife Dolly.

But Quayle is no scientist. He wasn’teven an adventure tourist. He’s a 16-year-oldwho just started his junior year at Academyat the Lakes.

The Beavers offer the internship to onestudent each year, creating an opportunityof a lifetime. Quayle had such a desire tomake the trip that he applied his freshmanyear, but lost out to an older student. Thatchanged his sophomore year when he madeit in, and found himself on a plane to South

America that summer.“You write a small essay on what you

want to do with the knowledge you gainfrom going there, and what you expect todraw from the experiences,” Quayle said.And that part was easy for him, since hisgoal is to eventually become a journalist,working for publications like those ownedby National Geographic.

And while he was among tourists and re-searchers, this wasn’t a trip to Disney World.There was no air-conditioning, no hot show-ers, and bugs were the size of softballs. Theaverage temperature is 81 degrees, but thehumidity is so high, it puts Florida to shame.

“The locals there, they don’t sweat,”Quayle said. “If you sweat, you just get hot-ter, because of all the humidity. You learn tosit in places with a good breeze, and youlearn to survive on cold showers.”

Quayle woke up at 6 a.m. daily and hikedfor a few hours. He primarily cleaned outcamera traps that are used to capture

wildlife on film in its nativehabitat for researchers. Hebrought protein bars withhim to keep his energy up, be-cause breakfast wasn’t serveduntil he returned to camp.

“I actually dropped 15pounds while I was there,”Quayle said. “We would eatwell, but it was a lot of plan-tains and a lot of rice, as wellas some fresh vegetables.”

Usually, afternoons werespent working with touristswho would visit the TahuayoLodge and the Tahuayo RiverAmazon Research Center, lo-cated about 30 miles south ofIquitos, Peru’s fifth-largest city,in the Loreto Region.

The forests, as nearly any-one would imagine, weredangerous. Quayle almost had

a fatal run-in with a fer-de-lance, a highly poi-sonous snake that can disguise itself well tolook like a rock.

“It does swim, and it likes to hunt nearthe water,” Quayle said. “We were on theshore, and lucky the person I was with no-ticed it, because I almost walked into it.”

But not all of Quayle’s encounters withthe wildlife had happy endings. He wasstung by a tarantula hawk — a spider waspthat is so aggressive that it hunts tarantulas.Its sting is considered to be the secondmost painful in the world, second only tothe bullet ant.

“You would have these flying roaches allover the place, and so you’re constantlyswatting them away,” Quayle said. “We wereout spear fishing, and a bug landed on myback. I swatted it, and didn’t realize it was atarantula hawk.”

Back home, Quayle is on the Academy atthe Lakes football team, and spends timeplaying the cello. His parents are Kevin andKathy Quayle, who own All Season Air

Conditioning & Heating in Tampa.Before going to Peru, Quayle was only

out of the country three other times, andtwo of those were cruises. But that mightchange now that he’s had a taste of theworld outside of North America, and hasmade new friends around the globe.

“I am very interested in traveling, andI’ve always loved traveling,” he said. “My par-ents, not so much.”

With two more years left to his highschool career, Quayle’s not even looking towait until he’s in college to try to head outagain. He’s already applying for a chance totake care of a baby orangutan in Borneo fortwo months next summer. And he’s gettingready for a trip to England and France withhis European studies class.

“There is so much worldly knowledgeout there that I want to collect, before Ihave to sit down and really take in all thatscholarly knowledge from college,” Quaylesaid. “There is just so much to see, and so lit-tle time to do it in.”

PHOTOS COURTESY OF KENNY QUAYLEKenny Quayle, a junior at Academy at the Lakes, spent part of his summer as an intern inPeru, working in the Amazon. The trip included adventures, like this fishing trip on theTahuayo River.

Kenny Quayle has always loved sugar, but he’s never quitehad it like this. The Academy at the Lakes junior got totaste sugar straight from the cane during his summerinternship in the Amazon rainforest in Peru.

COURTESY OF PATRICIA SERIO

Marking a somber anniversaryMembers of the GFWC Lutz-Land O’Lakes Woman’s Club were out in force to wave flags incommemoration of the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. The grouphas been present each and every year on that date to wave flags in both Lutz and Land O’Lakes to mark the occasion. Members heard a resounding chorus of truck and car hornsacknowledging their presence and the display of flags.

COURTESY OF DEANNA KRAUTNERRuth Ann Collins, a recreation leader with Pasco County, shares ‘drain and cover’ informa-tion at Veterans Memorial Park in Hudson. It’s part of the county’s efforts to increase aware-ness of mosquito-borne diseases.

County warns residents tostay away from mosquitoesThe Laker/Lutz News Staff Report

It’s called “drain and cover,” and it’s theFlorida Department of Health’s way to em-phasize the importance of protectingagainst mosquito-borne illness.

“Drain and cover” basically is emptying,removing or covering any containers thatwill allow mosquitoes to develop, saidDennis Moore with the Pasco CountyMosquito Control District. By draining stand-ing water, it will stop mosquitoes frommultiplying.

Residents also should:• Drain water from garbage cans, house

gutters, buckets, pool covers, coolers, toys,flower pots, or any other containers wheresprinkler or rain water has collected.

• Discard old tires, drums, bottles, cans,pots and pans, broken appliances and otheritems that aren’t being used.

• Empty and clean birdbaths and petwater bowls at least once or twice a week.

• Protect boats and vehicles from rainwith tarps that don’t accumulate water.

• Maintain swimming pools in good con-dition, and appropriately chlorinate them.Empty plastic swimming pools when not inuse.

• Cover skin with clothing or repellent.Wear shoes, socks, long pants and longsleeves. This type of protection may be nec-essary for people who must work in areaswhere mosquitoes are present.

• Apply mosquito repellent to bare skinand clothing, and use mosquito netting toprotect children younger than 2 months.

When it comes to using repellents, mem-bers of the Pasco County division of thehealth department suggests people readlabel directions carefully, since some repel-lents are not suitable for children.

Products with concentrations of up to30 percent DEET are generally recommend-ed. Other approved repellents from the U.S.Environmental Protection Agency includingPicaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, orIR3535.

Repellent should be applied to exposedskin or onto clothing, but not under cloth-ing.

Residents also should cover doors andwindows with screens to keep mosquitoesout of houses.

Those who would like more informationon avoiding mosquitoes can call (727) 861-5250, ext. 162, or send an email [email protected].

PHOTOS COURTESY OF BETSY CRISPVolunteers found plenty of junk along busy Collier Parkway during the annual Coastal Cleanup on Sept. 20.

Sandra and Kurt Conover, as well as Betsy Crisp, were the coordinators of this year’s CoastalCleanup in Land O’ Lakes.

Despite its name, the Coastal Cleanup involves cleaning up areas far beyond coastalwaterways, including along the sides of roads, at parks and on school grounds.

At left, volun-teer crews filledup truckloads ofjunk during theCoastalCleanup.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report

Now, in its 25th year, the Coastal Cleanupwas Sept. 20 and involved hundreds of vol-unteers.

Despite its name, the cleanup goes be-yond cleaning waterways. It also involvespicking up school grounds, parks and roads.

Some unusual finds included about 20empty vodka bottles on Parkway Boulevard;a wedding garter on Collier Parkway; acouch, television, toilet, dishwasher, hoseand pipes on Drexel and Tower roads; andtelevision remote control and credit card atCollier and Willow parkways.

Cleanup crews delivered truckloads oftrash to a dumpster at the SunTrust Bank onState Road 54. When they finished theirwork, they took a break to enjoy a barbecuelunch. They also had a chance to win doorprizes.

Sponsors for this year’s event wereSunTrust, Hungry Harry’s Family Bar-B-Que,Ierna’s Heating & Cooling, McDonald’s, WestCoast Rental, Waste Management, the Lutz-Land O’ Lakes Woman’s Club, RegionalMedical Center Bayonet Point, and the PascoCounty Extension of the University ofFlorida Institute of Food and AgriculturalSciences.

ROBOCALLS WILL HAPPEN, BUT THERE ARE RULES

Pasco County Supervisor of ElectionsBrian Corley has told voters in a recentnewsletter that robocalls might be plaguingmany ahead of the November election, butreminding them that none of them are affili-ated with his office.

Political parties and candidates who uti-lize robocalls have to comply with state law,and both major political parties — as well ascandidates — have legally used this technol-ogy to encourage voters to request avote-by-mail ballot, conduct get-out-the-voteefforts, and surveys, Corley said.

Political candidates and parties can re-quest parts of a voter’s registration form thatis legally available to the public — which isvirtually everything outside of SocialSecurity numbers and driver’s license num-bers. Also part of the public record are emailaddresses, which can be made available topolitical parties and anyone else submittingpublic records requests.

“For this reason, and to protect voters, Ido not encourage voters to provide theiremail addresses,” Corley said in the newslet-ter.

Saint Leo cracks top 10 in men’s soccerBy Michael [email protected]

They’re only a few games into the sea-son, but it’s never too early to get somenational recognition.

The Saint Leo men’s soccer team (2-0-2)has earned a ninth-place ranking in the mostrecent National Soccer Coaches Associationof America poll. The poll was released be-fore their two most recent games: a 1-0victory over 21st-ranked West Alabama onSept. 19, and a scoreless tie against theUniversity of West Florida Sept. 21.

While they’ve won just two games inthe new season, the first was a big one: TheLions toppled second-ranked Carson-Newman University out of Tennessee, 2-0.The victory boosted the 17th-ranked Lionsup to the 11th spot in the poll, and a score-less draw against Clayton State propelledthem into the top 10.

According to coach Keith Fulk, a goodshowing against Carson-Newman — whichalso was last year’s national runner-up —was important to establish momentum atthe beginning of the season.

“We’ve built the program for four yearsnow, and if you’re going to try and get to thefinal four or get to win a national champi-onship, you have to play the best,” he said.

Even with the confidence he has in hisLions, Fulk admitted to being a bit surprisedat how well the team came together soquickly and dominated the second half ofthat game.

While Saint Leo’s defense has shinedwith three shutouts, opponents are spend-ing a lot of time trying to keep the Lionsfrom scoring. The team has outshot itsfoes 87-35 so far, including commanding 35-10 advantage in shots on goal.

While Saint Leo is playing well in bothaspects of the game, Fulk believes his of-fense is the team’s strength right now. Theteam is pressing forward well and displayinga dynamic style that’s giving opponentsproblems.

That offensive style is making it harderfor teams to get many shots on the Lions, so

their goalkeeper doesn’t have to work ashard. It’s been a recipe for success, butManny Schoenhuber, now in his third year,actually wishes he was a bit busier.

“I like getting a lot of shots on goal, to behonest. It keeps me ready,” he said. “Ofcourse I’m glad I get shutouts and all that,but I’m also here to save the ball. I like my

job. I like being a goalie.”Schoenhuber has had plenty of time to

learn to like his job. Now 22, he started play-ing soccer when he was 5, and was involvedin club soccer at 7. He hails from a smalltown near Munich, Germany, and played atthe professional club level before coming tothe United States.

Now in his third year with Saint Leo, he’sbecome a team leader and has seen a greatchange in the Lions’ approach to the game.

“When I first came here, the biggestissue we had was discipline,” Schoenhubersaid. “It was just not a very professional wayof thinking among the players. But that’schanged a lot now.”

Fulk credits a lot of that change to playerslike Schoenhuber, who have joined the teamfrom other countries. Saint Leo has a numberof players from Germany and France on theteam, and having athletes who come fromcountries where soccer is so importantmakes everyone better, he said.

“I think the difference is their experi-ence, their culture, their knowledge, theirconfidence. It’s contagious to the youngerplayers,” Fulk said. “The Florida kids havelearned. A kid said to me the other day thathe’s learned more in three weeks than helearned in 15 years. And a lot of that is learn-ing from the other players.”

For now, Saint Leo is having to learn toplay with some national recognition and sta-tus associated with their name. They won’tbe able to sneak up on teams, Fulk said, andplaying in the tough Sunshine StateConference means there aren’t any easygames on the schedule.

Fellow conference member LynnUniversity was ranked No. 6 in the samepoll, for example. Since then, the FightingKnights lost their first match on Sept. 20.

While the Lions are proud of their rank-ing and excited about the attention, they allagree that the goal isn’t to ascend in polls,accumulate statistics or earn votes. Theywant to keep winning games and play wellwhen it matters most at the end of the year,and in the playoffs.

“We want to be there in November andDecember playing,” Fulk said. “That’s our realtarget.”

And Schoenhuber agrees.“At the end, the only thing that matters is

that we win as a team,” he said. “I don’t careif I have 15 shutouts this season or onlytwo. If we win the national title, that’s allthat matters to me.”

COURTESY OF MIKE CARLSONJust a few games into the season, Saint Leo goalkeeper Manny Schoenhuber hasn’t allowedany goals and the Lions haven’t lost any games. They’re ranked in the top 10 of the mostrecent NSCAA poll.

FRED BELLET/PHOTOSA hefty dose of rain on the first night of the Festival of Flight left puddles in the exhibitor area where a Navy training plane flown in by Warbird Adventures sits atop a mirror reflection in theleftover rainwater.

By B.C. [email protected]

The threat of rain couldn’t keep specta-tors away or the balloons from hitting thesky during the second Festival of Flight atTampa North Aero Park in Lutz.

The event featured 22 balloons, includinga flying pig, a giant clown and a pumpkin.

Doug Gannt flew the pig, known asHam-Let. He came in from Taiwan to takepart in the festival.

Admission was free and parking was $2.The balloon glow planned for Friday

night had to be cancelled because of weath-er and the balloon ascension on Saturday

morning was cancelled too, for the samereason, said festival director Jessica Warren.

But the weather cleared enough to have theballoon glow on Saturday night and the balloonascension on Sunday morning, she added.

Despite the less-than-ideal weather,Warren estimated that about 7,000 peopleturned out, filling five parking lots and caus-ing people to park along the road.

Those attending could take rides on bal-loons, helicopters and other aircraft, couldpurchase food and listen to live music.

Warren won’t let stormy weather dimher enthusiasm for the event.

“We’re already planning for next year,”she said.

COURTESY OF DOUG TOBINBoy Scouts from Troop 33 in Land O’ Lakes took on the task of beautifying the area aroundthe Pasco County Animal Services shelter thanks to the suggestion of a volunteer there.

The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report

Boy Scout Troop 33 in Land O’ Lakes re-cently made a trip to Dogpatch Lanerecently to help improve the outdoor ap-pearance at Pasco County Animal Services.

The efforts of the 14 Scouts resulted in afresh new look on the grounds around thekennels for adoptive pets. Troop leaders,family and friends joined them.

The Scouts moved large piles of mulchin the summer heat to create a pathway tothe outdoor dog runs, and visually en-hanced the areas between and around theruns.

Carrie Heinz, a long-term volunteer at

the shelter, suggested the project to theshelter supervisor, Lise Meinke. Heinz’s sonJason is part of the troop.

“What a transformation,” shelter managerMike Shumate said, in a release. “The Scoutsworked hard and made a vast improvementto the area. It looks great, and we really ap-preciate their support.”

The Pasco County Public WorksDepartment provided the mulch for theproject, while the Scouts contributed thelabor and committed to actively maintain-ing the beautification work in the area.

For more information on the project, callPasco County Animal Services at (813) 929-1212, or visit PascoCountyFl.net/PAS.

WENDY’S COMING TO SUNLAKEHomes are popping up throughout the

area surrounding the intersection of SunlakeBoulevard and State Road 54, and the business-es are coming with it.

The latest one planned is a new 3,500-square-foot Wendy’s fast food restaurant,complete with drive-thru service. It will beconstructed on less than an acre of land cur-rently owned by Sunlake Equity One LLC outof Miami, which has nearly 28 acres on thesite.

Wendy’s International Inc., is in charge ofthe construction project, which will be consid-ered by Pasco County’s Development ReviewCommittee on Sept. 25. Wendy’s initially sub-mitted plans to the county for the project lastApril, with final revisions received at the endof August, according to county records.

It would become the seventh Wendy’s loca-tion east of the Suncoast Parkway, the closestat 2328 Raden Drive in Land O’ Lakes. Otherlocations are in Wesley Chapel, New Tampa,Zephyrhills and Dade City.

The meeting is set for Sept. 25 at 1:30 p.m.,at the West Pasco Government Center, 8731Citizens Drive in New Port Richey.

A CHANCE TO RACE TO WORKCareerSource Pasco Hernando is hosting

three RACE to Work events throughout theregion, helping those who are receiving un-employment benefits find work.

RACE, or Reemployment Assistance-claimant Community Event, will have its firstjob event Oct. 1 from 9 a.m. to noon at Pasco-Hernando State College, 450 Beverly Court, inSpring Hill. A second event will follow Oct.15 from 9 a.m. to noon at RasmussenCollege, 8661 Citizens Drive, Suite 300, in

New Port Richey.A third and final event will move to the

eastern side of Pasco County, Oct. 22 from 9a.m. to noon at the American Legion Post,37745 Church Ave., in Dade City.

The event is free for both companies andthose seeking work.

Businesses interested in registering a bookcan call Joyce Headrick at (352) 200-3050.

LOWE’S WANTS A BIGGER SIGNWhen Lowe’s opens its doors later this

year, it wants to make sure drivers on StateRoad 54 just east of Land O’ Lakes Boulevardrealize it’s there.

The hardware store, now under construc-tion in 152,000 square feet of space acrossfrom Village Lakes Shopping Center, is askingPasco County’s Development ReviewCommittee to allow its wall sign on the build-ing to be more than double the size thecounty currently allows.

Current code limits a wall sign — that is,one that is hung on the front or side of a busi-ness — to 150 square feet. However, Lowe’swants to build a sign on the front of its store ata little more than 375 square feet.

That would make the sign nearly 19 feettall and 20 feet long, instead of the 15 feet longand 10 feet tall usually allowed under countyordinance.

In return, Lowe’s says it’s willing to buildjust one sign at the road, instead of the threethe county allows. Overall, that would reducethe amount of signage Lowe’s has to 37 per-cent smaller than what the county allows,according to records submitted to theDevelopment Review Committee.

A decision is expected Sept. 25 at 1:30p.m., at the West Pasco Government Center,8731 Citizens Drive in New Port Richey.
