Can mall save room for Wesley Chapel name?

By Michael Hinman mhinman@lakerlutznews.com

Now that developers of a proposed outlet mall just off Interstate 75 took a big step forward last week with revised site plans for their 57-acre project, one question remains on the minds of local businesses: Will the new mall include “Wesley Chapel” in its name? “I think on one hand, we would love to have our local identity,” said John Hagen, president and chief executive of Pasco Economic Development Council Inc. “We would love to see that be more prominent, but we also benefit from our association with Tampa and Tampa Bay. It’s a mixed bag, but I see both things.” Simon Property Group, part of the devel-

opment team that’s officially JG Cypress Creek LLC and Tampa Premium Outlets LLC, have named the project on Wesley Chapel Boulevard and State Road 56 “Cypress Creek Town Center Premium Outlets Mall.” However, it’s unclear whether that name is just a working title, or if that is a final decision. A request for comment from Simon about the name was still pending when The Laker/Lutz News went to press. Wesley Chapel might be part of the greater Tampa Bay area, but the community has long sought its own identity, and has pushed hard for businesses — especially high-profile ones — to include “Wesley Chapel” in names, and not “Tampa.” See MALL, page 14

One will have food trucks, while another is encouraging carpooling. One plans a lakeside “Sonrise” service, while another will have water baptisms following its early morning services. And those are just a few of the variations on the theme of Easter expressed through planned celebrations at area churches. Exciting Idlewild Baptist Church has five celebrations planned this Easter, including food trucks on April 19 and special performances by the orchestra and choir the next day, on Easter morning. The church’s website poses the question: “Hunting for something more this Easter?”And then it answers that query with an invitation to come and discover more at the Lutz megachurch at 18333 Exciting Idlewild Blvd. The church plans “to celebrate the glorious meaning of the Resurrection” with services set for 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on April 19, its website says. Food trucks will be there from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., that day for anyone who wants to grab a bite to eat. On Easter morning, services are planned

As the speaker wrapped up his talk, Land O’ Lakes High School students streamed down to the front of the auditorium to shake his hand and pose with him for photos. They wanted a personal encounter with Philip Gans, a man who survived the horrors of the Holocaust during World War II. Gans was at the high school to share his story, so others won’t forget the atrocities

committed by the Nazis. “Your children will never have a chance to see a concentration camp survivor,” Gans said, speaking to teachers and students from U.S. history, world history and several other classes. Social studies teacher Whitney Miller arranged the visit, saying it’s important for students to use the most primary source of information they can receive. See HOLOCAUST, page 14

Future of Pasco lives and dies with municipal airports By Michael Hinman

And your most admired judge is …

mhinman@lakerlutznews.com

The expansion of State Road 56 into Zephyrhills could be key to a major economic boom for Pasco County, and two candidates seeking to replace state Rep.Will Weatherford, R-Wesley Chapel, in Tallahassee agree state-level leadership must be in place to make sure it happens. Danny Burgess and Minnie Diaz both shared their visions for House District 38 during a meeting last week of the Wesley Chapel Republican Club.The two are seeking the Republican nomination to face Democrat Beverly Ledbetter in the November election, and both flexed their conservative values in front of the small crowd in the training room at Hyundai of Wesley Chapel. “To have State Road 56 coming all the way to Zephyrhills with our municipal airport sitting right here, we are going to benefit so much as a community, as a district and as an area,” said Burgess, who up until last Monday was mayor of Zephyrhills.“That is such an asset for this area.” Yet, proposed projects like the private elevated toll road could disrupt plans to start that expansion in the next two to three years, with the Florida Department of Transportation likely going to “hold back” until a final decision can be made on the controversial 33-mile project. “All they are looking for is a green light or red light by the county to see whether or not they are going to approve it,” Burgess said. But for the elevated road itself? “It is not what we want.” Diaz said the developers behind the elevated road project, International Infrastructure Partners, have far too many unanswered questions surrounding them for her to support the project. “We need to look, as a county, at other alternatives,” she said.“Sure, we want to go all

House District 38 candidates Danny Burgess and Minnie Diaz were asked during a recent Wesley Chapel Republican Club forum to identify their favorite U.S. Supreme Court justice. It’s definitely not Elena Kagan or Sonia Sotomayor, two justices appointed by President Obama, Diaz said. Instead, she likes Clarence Thomas. “He had to go through those (sexual harassment) hearings unfortunately, and I think his time is coming up now,” Diaz said. “He needs to step up and confront the current judges and be more vocal and create more advocacy for conservatism.” Burgess, himself a lawyer, says he prefers Antonin Scalia. “You become fascinated by this man’s legal opinions, the way he words his opinions,” Burgess said.“He is really an asset to the Supreme Court, and I just hope that he can stick around for as long as he can muster.”

the way into Zephyrhills so that the east and west can become more easily accessible. But the original plans are just too big. I think we can probably break it up into smaller pieces and make that work for Pasco County.” Diaz is a native of California, but has lived in Pasco County for more than a decade after making her career in the U.S. Air Force. She has always been excited about the economic possibilities when it comes to aeronautics, she said, and Pasco County has two airports — Zephyrhills and Tampa North Executive Airport in Lutz — just miles apart that could bookend a major industrial corridor. “It would be attractive to those in the manufacturing of aerospace and aviation technologies,” Diaz said.“My vision for Pasco is to make Pasco so attractive, it would be a secondary hub for these industries, yet not impact the quality of water and agriculture that is part of our East Pasco makeup.” While the state should lead the charge, Diaz says she still supports local govern-

ments having a final say. “My role (in the House) should be in advocating economic growth,” she said.“You tell me what you want, and I’ll see that it’s done on the state level.” One of the key components of listening closely to local city and county governments is that leaders at the state and federal level have a tendency to paint with a broad brush, Burgess said. “What is best for Broward County is not always best for Pasco County,” he said.“We need to absolutely protect our home rule. That is the doctrine that our state has adopted many years ago, and it allows our local governments to make their own decisions, to adopt their own charters and adopt their own ordinances.” During the forum, Burgess highlighted his time as both the youngest city councilman in the state (he was first elected in Zephyrhills when he was 18), and later the youngest mayor in the city’s history, fresh

out of law school. Diaz acknowledges she has not held elective office before, but that hasn’t stopped her from trying to make a difference when it comes to making laws. A bill she helped craft was in committee late last week, she said, and is designed to provide funding to jails to help train officials on how to provide services to the mentally ill. “It will not have cost us any money as taxpayers,” Diaz said.“The initiative was written in such a way that it requires funding from other sources like gambling and lottery. It would not create an increase on our community burden.” The primary election for House District 38 is Aug. 26, with the winner heading to the general election Nov. 4.

Winery wants to add its label to local make-it-yourself market By Michael Murillo mmurillo@lakerlutznews.com

It used to be the location of a shipping and printing company. But if all goes as planned, 3901 Land O’ Lakes Blvd., will soon be a place to find merlot, not mailing supplies. Land O’ Lakes Winery is making final plans to move into the location this week, and should be up and running in a few months. And after about a year of planning and permits, the owners are excited to start filling bottles. “We’re pretty psyched,” said Sue Hardy, who owns the new winery with her business partner, Corey Kempton. “We’re getting so much positive feedback.The buzz is getting out there. I think it’s just one of those things where people want something like this, and there’s just nothing like it out here.” More than just a place to purchase adult beverages, Land O’ Lakes Winery will feature do-it-yourself services where friends or families can come in and actually make their own wines under professional supervision and guidance. The company also will create several wines under its own label, and offer an area onsite where people can socialize and have a glass of wine or beer along with some food pairings. The goal is to make the location a

place where people can make, buy and try different wines while supporting a local business. While Hardy is pleased with the company’s progress and eager to get the doors open, she admits that the business wasn’t automatically a shoo-in to get approved. Starting a business that includes the manufacture of wine and consumption of alcoholic beverages on-site meant getting conditional use approval from the Pasco County Commission, which they picked up late last year. That decision clears the way for the company to offer what Hardy believes will be a unique and fun experience for area residents who might want to make wine, then gather for a wine tasting. Creating their own wine might not be a common activity for wine lovers, but Hardy, who enjoys making her own, said it’s a rewarding one. Utilizing a community room, the kits provided will allow a group to make approximately 30 bottles of wine from a process that takes between six to eight weeks. And the wine they’ll create will not only be cost-effective when compared to buying similar quality from a traditional retailer, but should have a more prominent taste than they might find in store-bought wine. “The quality of the wine you make is so much better. There are

less sulfites,” Hardy said. “There’s a very distinct bite to store-bought wine, and it has to do with the preservatives that they have to use so that is has a longer shelf life.” While the wines still contain sulfites as they have antioxidant and antibacterial properties, having a smaller amount leads to a smoother taste. That taste also means a shorter shelf life:The wine people buy at retail outlets can be stored for decades, but Hardy said that wine made in a community room is best when consumed within about five years. Customers also will be able to purchase the company’s own wine as well. While details have not been finalized, Hardy said they’ll probably begin with around 20 wines of their own, as well as other brands from other manufacturers. The name of the company and the street on which it will be located are not coincidences.While opening day is still a few months away, Hardy wants to forge a strong identity with Land O’ Lakes in the minds of customers, and let them know that they’ll be supporting a local business with strong local ties. “I think it’s a pride thing,” she said.“I think Land O’ Lakes has come a long way, and I don’t think it’s getting the notoriety it deserves.”

Seminar helps business owners understand Obamacare By B.C. Manion bcmanion@lakerlutznews.com

There are supporters and detractors of the Affordable Care Act — better known as Obamacare — but no matter where you stand on the issue, unless you qualify for a subsidy, you’ll pay higher insurance rates. That’s what Jason Greif, an insurance agent with U.S. Health Group, told members of a health insurance reform class at the SmartStart Dade City incubator April 8. The insurance agent, who has been in the industry for eight years, explained changes in health care law, talking about the pros and cons of the new requirements, and the different kinds of insurance coverage that are available in the health care marketplace. Greif also explained the penalty for not purchasing health insurance, which is now mandatory, and he talked about the risks that people face when they don’t have insurance. “A lot of people are misinformed,” Greif said. Part of Obamacare took effect on March 23, 2010, he said, noting that’s when insurance companies had to begin covering what has been defined as essential health benefits. “There are 10 of them,” Greif said.They include services ranging from child immunizations to maternity care, mammograms to colonoscopies. “What do you guys think is going to happen to the rates if the insurance companies have to cover everybody’s colonoscopy? They go up,” he said. “I actually am for Obamacare for a lot of different reasons. But it has increased the rates.” Another big change happened on Jan. 1. That’s when insurance companies could no longer deny coverage. “No matter what, anybody can get health insurance,” Greif said.

Insurance agent Jason Greif helps explain some of the ins and outs of health care reform, also known as Obamacare.

That’s good news for people who were denied coverage before, but it drives up insurance rates as a result. In the past, people with certain conditions could only get coverage as part of a group. “It’d really be disheartening for me to say, ‘There’s nothing I can do.You have diabetes, I can’t get you insurance,’” Greif said. “Nobody could do anything for them,” un-

less they were able to get covered through a group. “It’s almost more of a socialistic approach to healthcare. But for people that are sick, for people that get a subsidy, it’s actually an amazing program because those people were not able to get insurance,” Greif said. This year’s open enrollment is over.The

only way to enroll through the marketplace outside of the enrollment period is to have a life-changing event such as moving, losing group insurance or having a child, Greif said. The next enrollment period begins Nov. 15. Those who want to get an idea of what their rates would be can go to a website, HealthSherpa.com, to get a fairly close estimate of what to expect, Greif said. “This is a great website. The quotes are usually $5 higher or lower. It’s a way you can get an accurate quote and you don’t have to go on Healthcare.gov and create a profile and give all of your personal information out,” he said. Now, health insurance rates are based on age, tobacco use and ZIP code, Greif said. Eligibility for subsidies is based on income. Still, there are choices in the types of coverage and the rates that are attached to those, he said. Some coverage types allow people to choose doctors who are inside or outside of their network, while others allow people to use only doctors within their networks. Some of the networks have more doctors than others, Greif said. It’s important to find out exactly what the plan includes. Greif recommends a plan that allows individuals the most latitude when it comes to selecting which doctors and hospitals will treat them. For those who disregard the law and do not get health insurance, the penalty is either $95 or 1 percent of the individual’s modified gross adjusted income, whichever is higher, Greif said. Regardless of where people stand on Obamacare, Greif said having coverage is essential.Without it, he said, people who have serious medical emergencies or conditions can go bankrupt in a matter of days.

Don’t be Scared into a Lawn Service You Don’t Need Because of an Unsolicited Door Hanger Our Four-Step Philosophy 1) A correct diagnosis We think of ourselves as a preventative company because we diagnose problems before they become a disaster. Most lawn services only care about selling fertilizer and insecticides and don’t have personnel with the knowledge to correctly identify lawn problems.

2) The right treatment and the best products The biggest reason people lose their lawn and landscaping is because they are treating for a problem they do not have. The second reason is because of substandard or not enough chemicals or insecticide. McGuire’s only uses top-rated products at the strength recommended by the manufacturer.

3) If we can’t improve your lawn, we will not sell our services Caring for a lawn is a partnership between the homeowner and our company. Working together we’ll protect your investment so you’ll never need to re-sod your lawn again.

4) Lawn care is serious business Putting chemicals on your lawn and selecting the right plants for your yard is serious business and nothing to laugh about. Your landscaping is an investment and we’re serious about taking care of it the right way.

DENTAL

BITES

There have been so many changes in how dentistry is practiced since we opened our dental office 25 years ago in Land O’ Lakes. We want to use this dedicated space in The Laker and Lutz News to answer questions we are frequently asked and to share with you information about new innovations that make dentistry pain free and affordable.

Q A Studies of whitening products from a reputable source such as your dentist are safe and can be very effective if used as directed. True bleaching Do teeth whiteners damage tooth enamel?

agents have hydrogen peroxide or carbamide peroxide as the active ingredient and have shown little effect on hardness or mineral content of a tooth’s enamel surface. Because it is possible to over bleach your teeth, you should always be monitored by your dentist while using these products. Our next Dental Bites will talk about the difference between “whitening” and true “bleaching” agents, there is a significant difference.

MOORE ADDS ANOTHER $6K TO CAMPAIGN

Mike Moore continues to prove he can raise lots of money in a short period of time, pulling in more cash than all of his challengers in his run for the Pasco County Commission. In March, Moore raised $6,261, bringing his total to $50,561 in his efforts to replace Pat Mulieri on the commission. Only former state Rep. Ken Littlefield was close with $1,200 over the same time period, bringing his total to $2,200. Moore remains committed to raising money from builders and developers, including $1,000 from the Alfonso family in Tampa, $500 from rancher and developer Don Porter, and $500 from the commercial land broker Eshenbaugh Land Co. In all, those connected with real estate, development and construction accounted for $4,400 of Moore’s totally monthly haul, while only $2,800 of it came from Pasco County residents. Littlefield had just one major donor in March, Hodges Family Funeral Home, which donated $1,000.The third Republican in the race, Bob Robertson, raised $238 in March, bringing his overall total to $10,860. The lone Democrat in the race so far, Erika Remsberg, raised just $50 – small donations from Pasco County residents. She has raised just $450, but so far, she has not drawn a primary challenger. Moore still has $37,000 in the bank based on money he hasn’t spent, while Robertson still has $4,900 to work with. Littlefield has $1,600, and Remsberg $140 available. Moore, Littlefield and Robertson will face off in the Aug. 26 primary, the winner set to face Remsberg in November.

The East Pasco Democratic Club will meet April 21 at 7 p.m., at The Commons, 38130 Pretty Pond Road in Zephyrhills. The speaker will be Lynn Providence of Legal Shield talking about identity theft. For information, call (813) 838-0767.

EASTER, from page 1

HOLOCAUST, from page 1

said Easter is a tremendously important day in the Christian calendar. “It’s because the Resurrection of Jesus is the central event of all humanity,” said Holm, who is pastor of Calvary Chapel of Tampa in Lutz, and president of the Zephyrhills/Wesley Chapel Ministerial Association. Jesus’ death and Resurrection means “that death has been defeated,” Holm said, allowing for “complete reconciliation” with God. While St.Timothy Catholic Church is welcoming worshippers, it’s advising them that they may want to attend an earlier Mass or to carpool.The church, at 17512 Lakeshore Road, has fewer parking spaces because of a construction project at its campus. Its Mass schedule includes an Easter Vigil Mass at 8 p.m. on April 19, an Easter Sunrise Mass at 7 a.m., and Easter Masses at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., and 1 p.m. on April 20. For those who like to get up with the birds, Our Lady of the Rosary Catholic Church at 2348 Collier Parkway in Land O’ Lakes, will have a 6 a.m. Easter sunrise service.The church also will have an Easter Vigil Mass at 7:30 p.m. on April 19 and Easter Sunday Masses at 7:45 a.m., 9:30 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Its Spanish Mass is at 1:30 p.m. At First United Methodist Church in Lutz, 960 Lutz Lake Fern Road, worshippers will have plenty of choices. There’s a lakeside Easter “Sonrise” service at 7 a.m., followed by a traditional chapel service at 8 a.m., a blended service at 9:45 a.m., and a contemporary service at 11 a.m. There’s also a pancake breakfast between services, with a donation box available for diners to make contributions. On its website, First United Methodist encourages worshippers to bring fresh flowers to adorn the cross, signifying that new life comes through the death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ. Grace Family Church, at 5101 Van Dyke Road in Lutz, is inviting worshippers to Easter Sunday services at 7 a.m., 9:30 a.m., and 11:30 a.m.A water baptism will follow the 7 a.m. sunrise service.

Gans, now 86, said his life in Amsterdam began as a happy one. “We had a good life,” he said.“Dad had his own business.We had people working for us. We had domestic help.We even had a car.” But Gans and his family were Jewish, so when the Nazis invaded they went into hiding beginning in August 1942, moving from place to place for nearly a year to avoid detection. On July 24, 1943 — the evening of his father’s birthday — they were arrested. Gans was 15 at the time. The family was taken to a detention camp, where they remained a month before being sent to Auschwitz III, a slave labor camp.They loaded more than 1,000 people into cattle cars and carted them to the concentration camp, jamming 50 to 60 people in each car, Gans recalled. There were no bathrooms. Those who needed to relieve themselves were forced to do so in a pail, in full view of others, Gans said. “They had no respect for humanity.As a matter of fact, they were savages.They were brutal,” he said. When they arrived at the camp, they separated the men and older boys from the women and children. He never saw his mom, sister or grandmother again. Once Gans he arrived at the camp, he was known as No. 139755. It’s tattooed on his arm and on a replica of the shirt he wore at the concentration camp. “The conditions were unbelievable,” Gans said. During his time of confinement he never saw a toothbrush or toothpaste. He showered about once every 10 days, he said. Besides the physical hardships, prisoners

MALL, from page 1 Because this mall will be so prominent for the thousands of travelers that take to I75 each day, this could very well become a place maker for Pasco. “Outlet malls draw regionally and nation-

Some of the highlights of Easter services around the area include: • Lutz First Baptist, 18116 N. U.S. 41, April 18 at 7 p.m., and April 20 at both 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. • Northpointe Church, 2427 Old Cypress Creed Road in Land O’ Lakes: April 19 at 6:30 p.m., and April 20 at 9:15 a.m. and 11 a.m. • Benedictine Sisters of Florida, Saint Leo University, 33201 State Road 52 in St. Leo: April 19 Easter Vigil at 8 p.m., and Easter Sunday Mass at 10:30 a.m. • Heritage Church, 1854 Oak Grove Blvd., Lutz: Easter Sunday services at 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m. • Keystone Community Church, 21010 State Road 54 in Lutz: Easter Sunday sunrise service at 7 a.m., and late service at 10:30 a.m. • Messiah Lutheran Church and Preschool, 14920 Hutchison Road in Tampa, Easter Sunday outdoor sunrise service at 7 a.m., and contemporary service at 9:45 a.m. • Van Dyke Church, 17030 Lakeshore Road in Lutz: Easter services at 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. on April 19, and at 9:30 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. on April 20. • St. Peter the Apostle Catholic Church, 12747 Interlaken Road in New Port Richey, Easter Sunrise service at 7:30 a.m. in the church parking lot, but it will move indoors if it is raining. There also will be an Easter Vigil at 7:45 p.m. on April 19 and two Masses on Easter, at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., on April 20.

ally with snowbirds and all that sort of thing, and we see it in some respect as a tourism play,” Hagen said. “Once you get things going there, we can leverage some hotel development, and you’ll probably see some office buildings as well as an area like that can really come alive. It should be exciting.”

endured mental abuse, he said. “They did everything to make life miserable for you,” Gans said.“They were brutal.” Workers kept trying to work, even when they were deathly ill, he said.They knew the consequences if they didn’t. “Everybody knows if you’re too weak to work, you’d wind up in the gas chamber,” Gans said. Despite the hardships, Gans considers himself one of the lucky ones. “I survived,” he said.“There were many people who did not survive. My dad, for instance, he was the only (one) of the 21 members of his family that did not die in the gas chambers. He died in a death march April 1945, a month before the liberation.” Gans said he, too, walked in the death march — long brutal hikes used by the Nazis when moving prisoners from one concentration camp to another — before being liberated by the American Army on April 23, 1945. He was 17. Besides using his message to remind people of the atrocities of the Holocaust, Gans also spreads another message.“Erase hate,” he urged the audience. “When you go home tonight, take out your dictionary and cross out the word ‘hate.’ Hate is corrosive,” Gans said. He also encouraged students to never give up hope and to take action when they witness something wrong going on. “Don’t hate and don’t be a bystander, especially in this day and age when so many kids are being bullied and then the next day in the newspaper (you read) that kid committed suicide,” Gans said. Those who stand by idly and let the bullying happen, he said,“are partly to blame.” “If you see something that’s being done wrong, even if you have no interest, speak up,” Gans said.

After his talk, Philip Gans showed students his concentration camp tattoo, shook hands with students and posed with them for pictures. The students seemed eager to have a personal encounter with someone who had survived one of history’s most B.C. MANION/STAFF PHOTO horrific chapters.

Hagen points to The Shops at Wiregrass as a prime example of what a major shopping center can do, especially as other businesses come to fill in around it. The revised plans call for the entire mall property to be constructed in seven phases, beginning with outlet mall itself. The mall calls for nine buildings with 482,000 square feet of retail. Overall, the project is calling for 1.1 million square feet of retail space. The mall got back on track last November after developers finalized an agreement with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers about how the project would impact surrounding wetlands and waterways. Back then, Simon officials said the mall could open as early as the end of this year.

However, County Administrator Michele Baker later put that timeframe somewhere around summer 2015. There are still other questions to answer beyond the mall itself, including what plans are to expand and extend Wesley Chapel Boulevard, and other infrastructure improvements needed to accommodate the mall. “That particular piece of road, down to State Road 54, is already designed,” Baker told members of the Greater Wesley Chapel Chamber of Commerce back in January. “When we balance our capital improvement budget, we look at the needs for the what and where, and we balance that. The road got pushed out because we didn’t have a mall there that needed it.” You Are Invited To

Businesses should be worried about identity theft, as well The Laker/Lutz News Staff Report

The theft of someone’s identity can be a life-changing event that takes years to overcome. But it can be worse for a business that would have to recover from a potential ruined credit history and large amounts of debt. The recent debit and credit card breach at retail chain Target Corp. should be a reminder to protect vital information because a stolen identity could be the beginning of a financial disaster that could last for years. Business identity theft is more common than most people think, according to Stevens & Stevens Business Records Management Inc. in Florida. With the Internet offering numerous opportunities to search the Web for information, complete transactions and collaborate via email or social networking sites, it’s important to take precautions to protect personal and business information online. “Some of the most basic precautions include locking your computer when you step away, using firewalls, anti-virus software and strong password, installing appropriate software updates, and being local when browsing or using email,” said Marshall Stevens, co-owner of Stevens & Stevens, in a release.“Following good security practices is a key step in safeguarding your information.” While there is no way to guarantee protection from identity thieves, there are steps that can be taken to try and help:

• Protect computers. Many employees have access to business computers. Employee access to programs or databases containing sensitive information should be reviewed regularly. • Choose strong, unique passwords. When setting account passwords, make sure it’s at least eight characters, and is made up of a combination of numbers and letters that are both upper and lower case. Never use the same password for all accounts. • Be wary of suspicious information. Trust your instincts. If an email or email attachment seems suspicious, don’t open it. Don’t be fooled by emails asking for personal information, and don’t click on unfamiliar links or attachments. • If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. You’ve probably seen emails promising rewards or monetary gifts. But regardless of what the email claims, you need to be aware of false promises as they are most likely spam or phishing schemes. • Install updates right away. Since your information could be lost or compromised, back up your information on a regular basis. Your backups will help you identify what has been changed or lost. Database backups should always be stored in a safe, secure area. Be sure all employees are up to date on a company’s security policy. Discuss email and Internet policies, computer network access, how to increase browser security settings, and how to deal with suspicious mail or emails.

Finally! PHSC gets first no-hitter after 23 years By Michael Murillo mmurillo@lakerlutznews.com

Steve Winterling has been coaching at Pasco-Hernando State College since the school began its baseball program back in 1992. He’s seen a lot of things on the field during that time, but on March 26 he saw something he had never seen before: One of his pitchers throw a no-hitter. Freshman Danny Rodriguez struck out nine batters in seven innings of work in the Conquistadors’ 13-0 victory against Morton College.The game was seven innings long because it was part of a double-header, which is common at the collegiate level. His efforts however earned Rodriguez National Junior College Athletic Association Pitcher of the Week for Division II baseball. “It’s always exciting when you get those,” Winterling said. “We’ve had several one-hitters over the years.They (no-hitters) just don’t happen a whole lot.” While he was excited for his player and team, Winterling isn’t obsessed with game statistics. He had to go back to his office and confirm that it was indeed the first no-hitter in school history. The no-hitter itself also was special because it was executed so well, Winterling said. Morton College only had two men reach base all game, and both of those were due to PHSC errors. Rodriguez didn’t walk a single batter in the contest. It also was an impressive accomplishment because the Conquistadors had a large lead, Winterling said, which sometimes allows pitchers to relax and lose focus since the game is likely in hand. Because the school only gets its athletes for a couple of years, Winterling said he’s used to relying on freshmen for success on the field, and Rodriguez has the characteristics he likes in young players. Specifically, he prefers athletes who are able to keep cool

COURTESY OF STEVE WINTERLING

Freshman Danny Rodriguez, a Steinbrenner High School graduate, threw Pasco-Hernando State College’s first no-hitter in the 23-year history of the baseball program.

under pressure and not let emotions dominate their play. “He has a very good baseball mind. He’s got a good temperament,”Winterling said of Rodriguez.“He’s not an emotional kid, really. He’s in control of himself.” Rodriguez hasn’t let his no-hitter affect

that control or his focus on continuing his strong freshman campaign. He said it was a great moment, but he was just doing what he’s supposed to do. “I wasn’t trying to (throw a no-hitter) at all. I was just trying to do my job and keep the ball down,” Rodriguez said.

Travel baseball tryouts on April 27

The Rockstar Rebels Travel Ball Academy will have tryouts for its fall baseball teams on April 27 from 1 to 4 p.m., at Bishop McLaughlin Catholic High School, 13651 Hays Road in Spring Hill. The organization will field six teams for players ages 7 through 14. The tryouts will be structured like a practice, with select players invited to take part in the summer training regimen.

Rodriguez showed prowess as a pitcher, but one interesting fact about his past on the baseball diamond is that he was a starter at Steinbrenner High School — at shortstop. He didn’t see much time on the mound during his high school campaign. But with a 6-2 record in his freshman year for PHSC, and a no-hitter already under his belt, Rodriguez is feeling comfortable in that role. However, he hasn’t abandoned his old position entirely. “Now I think of myself more as a pitcher, but I still think of myself as a middle infielder, too,” he said.“I still practice with them.” As rewarding as it was to record a no-hitter for the individual, the team and the school, both player and coach are on the same page regarding how long they allowed themselves to bask in the moment: Not long. “I didn’t forget about it, but I know I have to work on my next start and keep focused on that, Rodriguez said.The no-hitter “was nice, but I have to stay focused.” That focus paid off in his next start, a win April 4 against Clearwater Christian College. After the no-hitter, Winterling didn’t spend much time celebrating, either, opting instead to focus on the team’s next game and their effort to reach the postseason.As the only NJCAA Division II school in the state, PHSC has to qualify for a regional tournament in North Carolina by playing at least .500 baseball during the season. After starting the year 1-6, the Conquistadors found their footing and won 17 of their next 22 games. As a result, the team is on the cusp of the tournament despite a recent cold streak. So while the accomplishment is one for the record books, both coach and player have moved on to the team’s goals. “I let the kids enjoy it.That’s something for the kids to enjoy,”Winterling said.“I go back and do my work and get ready for the next game.” For information, call Coach Ryan Pryor at (813) 992-1030, or e-mail ryan@rockstarbaseball.com.

Maximum Benefits from Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

“It could not have worked out better.”

Cheri K., a real patient of St. Joseph’s Hospital-North

After years of pain due to endometriosis, Cheri knew she needed a hysterectomy. When she found out it could be done robotically and close to home at St. Joseph’s Hospital-North, she decided to have the surgery. She experienced minimal pain and was able to go home the next day. Cheri is grateful for the superior care she received. There are many benefits when you undergo a robotic procedure compared to a traditional, “open” surgery, including: Q Shorter hospital stay Q Shorter recovery Q Smaller scars Q Less pain

Watch Cheri’s story at StJosephsNorth.org.

For a physician referral:

(813) 644-6772

Talk to your doctor about your surgical options and consider robotic surgery at St. Joseph’s Hospital-North. BC1401037-0314
