Pauley to leave Braden River The school board is expected to approve the appointment of Braden River High School Principal Jim Pauley to director of secondary education May 14.

Melissa Herron

+ Beautiful moment Melissa Herron and her husband, Mike, of Bradenton, are active members of the Longboat Key Turtle Watch. Herron is used to watching Longboat Key’s spectacular sunrises, but this sunset photo, taken on Greer Island, was a more rare sighting for her. She said the lighting was spectacular on this January night, and she couldn’t resist capturing this universal moment between a mother and child, when the mom was showing her child the beauty of the world. Herron’s daughter, Danielle Etienne, jokingly asked her mom why she didn’t submit a photo of the two of them for The Observer’s Mother’s Day photo contest. “This appeals to everyone,” Herron said of the photo. This year’s contest included 25 submissions, and 3,993 total votes were cast. Herron’s winning photo received 1,370 votes. As the winner, Herron will receive a $75 gift certificate.

+ Attention kids: Show your patriotism Lakewood Ranch is looking for a few good boys and girls. The children of Lakewood Ranch are welcome to participate in the Lakewood Ranch Community Activities Corp. Tribute to Heroes Memorial Day Parade May 27, on Lakewood Ranch Main Street. Children can decorate their bike, wagon or scooter in red, white and blue to compete for a variety of prizes for Most Patriotic, Cutest and Most Original categories. Participants will need to meet no later than 5:15 p.m. in the Town Hall parking lot. Those wishing to participate should email Lori Basilone, lbasilone@lwrcac. com or call LWR Community Activities, 757-1530.

MANATEE COUNTY —  Walking from his office, Braden River High School Principal Jim Pauley paused in front of a picture hanging in the hallway. Signed by faculty members, it depicts a train crawling slowly over a bridge made of people. “It’s everybody working to-

gether,” Pauley said of what the picture represents to him. “Everybody has talent.” And soon, Pauley will begin a new adventure, sharing that concept with administrators of local middle and high schools. Pending approval by the Manatee County School Board May

14, the founding Braden River High School principal will become the district’s new director of secondary education, for which he will assist with management at all district middle and high schools. In his new role, which he will assume this summer, Pauley’s first task will be to

develop a district-wide plan to ensure schools are safe and orderly, foster an environment in which students and teachers can thrive and also have high expectations for students. “Mr. Pauley has provided a

LAKEWOOD RANCH — The Manatee County Sheriff’s Office is continuing to investigate the murder of Lakewood Ranch resident Ina Gross, 78, and have formally named her son Thomas Gross as a “person of interest.” “There’s no big movement in the case, but we are making slow and steady progress,” Manatee County Sheriff’s Office Public Information Officer Dave Bristow said. “We’re still following leads. Gross remains a person of interest and was the only person known to be in the house at the time around the crime. He discovered her.” Bristow noted a “person of interest” is someone who may have information on the crime, while a suspect typically is someone who has been charged with a crime or is about to be charged with a crime. “What we’ve done during

HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!

Sweet

Sentiments As the East County prepares to celebrate Mother’s Day this weekend, the East County Observer took a few minutes to speak with children in Lakewood Ranch High School’s Mini Mustangs voluntary pre-kindergarten program to find out what they thought about their own moms. — Pam Eubanks

Tyler Dickerman, 4 What are you going to do for your mom for Mother’s Day? I’m going to give her a big piece of gum in a little box — like in the story we read.

Maggie Sugalski, 5

Lily Schale, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she hugs me. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? I like to go to the playground with my mom and play. My mom is as pretty as … My mom is as pretty as a table. I don’t know why.

What do you love most about your mom? That she’s nice. What do you think a mom’s job is? Mom’s job is to teach big kids. Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she’s sweet. When I get bit by a fire ant, she gets me medicine. My mom is as pretty as … My mom is as pretty as can be. When is your mom the nicest? My mom is the nicest when she doesn’t have to work at night.

Tyler Poulton, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she’s nice. When is your mom the prettiest? My mom is the prettiest all the time. How do you plan to celebrate Mother’s Day? Maybe make (my mom) some breakfast. When is your mom the funniest? My mom is the funniest most of the time. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? Everything.

By Pam Eubanks | News Editor

Bella Moscone, 4 What do you love most about your mom? I love her so much and she loves me. How are you going to celebrate Mother’s Day? I want to get her a big box of chocolates for Mother’s Day and a heart of chocolate. My mom is as pretty as … My mom is as pretty as a princess. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? My favorite thing to do with my mom is to have a makeup party. When is your mom nicest? Every day she’s nice. When is your mom the funniest? My mom is the funniest when she tickles me.

Evan Joseph, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she makes me food — bacon. My mom is as pretty as … My mom is as pretty as a princess. My mom is the funniest when… My mom is the funniest when she reads funny stories. If your mom was gone for a whole week, what would you miss most about her. I would miss her necklace because it has three hearts. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? My favorite thing to do with my mom is to play hide-andseek.

Delaney Pratt, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she kisses me. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? I like to snuggle her and to go places with her.

When my mom is gone — when my mom is gone to the store, sometimes I draw her picture.

CDD delays budget approval The Heritage Harbour South Community Development District Board postponed a vote on its preliminary budget. HERITAGE HARBOUR — Supervisors on the Heritage Harbour South Community Development District board have initiated the budgeting process for the Fiscal Year 2013 but did not take action to approve a proposed $502,000 budget, in its entirety, at their meeting May 2. Supervisors will continue discussing budget items through September, at which time they will adopt the final budget. Last week, supervisors approved 3-1 the administrative portion of the budget, which sets aside $60,000 for potential legal fees associated with two lawsuits filed last year against the district, and reserves $3,000 for the creation of a website to make the district’s records available electronically, as requested by residents. Supervisors, however, decided to hold off on approving sections of the budget pertaining to reuse water services and community services for Stoneybrook and Lighthouse Cove. “I need more information,” Supervisor Richard Lane said of why he wanted to delay approval of the re-use water section, which includes a multiyear aquatic and wetland plant installation program. “The bottom line for me is it’s a very large number. It’s onefourth the cost of the total program.” The 2013 Fiscal Year budget reflects programs and services included in the Fiscal Year 2012 budget, including a multiyear program to fund clean-up efforts after a major storm event, as well as to improve the district’s stormwater facilities.

In other business:

Emma Hubley, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she takes care of me. When I get hurt, she comes to see what’s wrong or she sends my brother. What is a mom’s job? A mom is supposed to take care of you when you are hurt or sick or you have a fever. Why is your mom special to you? There’re so many reasons. She takes us to islands to play. She also lets us swim. If your mom was gone for a week, what would you miss most about her? I would miss her hugs. What is your favorite thing to do with your mom? Play with her. We play paper dolls and princess.

3A

Caleb Boss, 5 Why do you love your mom? I love my mom because she makes things I like. She makes a cake for my birthday. She loves me a lot and I love her so much. My mom is as pretty as … My mom is as pretty as a rose. A rose is prettier than a princess.

• Supervisors voted 3-1, with Joseph Jaudon opposed, to the hiring of Fishkind & Associates to provide expert consultation, expert opinions and litigation support, if needed, in dealing with lawsuits against the CDD regarding changes in assessments. Litigation support services will cost $15,000 and include the consultant make depositions and court appearances, as needed. Meeting attendance and presentations will be billed at an hourly rate: $800 per hour for Fishkind and $650 per hour for a senior associate. • After much discussion, supervisors directed district contractor Matt Morris, of Morris Riley, to research costs associated with purchasing a radar speed sign for use in the community.

FINAL BOW

5A

By Michael Eng | Managing Editor spring of Schaer’s expertise and the ones charged with carrying on his life’s work. “It’s definitely bittersweet,” Schaer says. “I’ll miss working with the kids the most. (The gala) will be a fun night. It’s all pop stuff, and all the songs have some significance in my life.” But, while most would welcome a night off, Schaer admits he’ll feel a tad uneasy. “Teaching and directing on that podium is the most comfortable place in the world for me,” he says.

FIRST NOTES

Michael Eng

Lakewood Ranch High School Band Director Bob Schaer, left, said he knew almost immediately he wanted Ron Lambert to succeed him as the head of the Mustang band program.

Ranch band director to retire Bob Schaer, who launched Lakewood Ranch High School’s nationally recognized band program, will step down in June. LAKEWOOD RANCH —  There isn’t much you haven’t seen after 35 years in the same profession. But, when the Lakewood Ranch LBK -High 2010School - I Band Department honors founding Band LBK Director - 2010 -Bob I Schaer with its Retirement Gala May 10, it will give him an entirely new perspective on the thriving pro-

gram he built from scratch. For the first time in his career, instead of standing at the podium, baton in hand, Schaer will kick back in the audience, as his students perform on stage. Four of Schaer’s protégés, Lakewood Assistant Band Director Ron Lambert, Braden River High School Band Director Kendall Carrier,

Bayshore High School Band Director Danny Boyd and North Port High School Band Director Owen Bradley will lead Lakewood’s concert band, symphonic band and wind ensemble. Lambert, who will assume the band program’s reins, calls the group the “Secret Society of Assistant Band Directors” — the off-

For some, it takes years to choose a career path, and some even more unfortunate never seem to find their true calling. Schaer, an Ohio native, knew he was destined for music at just 5 years old. The son of a jazz trumpet player, Schaer will never forget the night his father let him stay up late to see legendary drummer Buddy Rich perform on TV. “I was in kindergarten, and I thought it was just incredible,” Schaer remembers of seeing the big-band phenom. By fourth grade, Schaer was taking private drum lessons and continued learning the instrument through middle and high school. And although those formative years took place smack in the middle of Beatlemania, Schaer always preferred something with a little more swing. “I liked the jazz thing,” he says. “Not much of a rock ’n’ roller. I was in a garage band — once, but I really liked the jazz and big-band stuff.” Schaer harbored big aspirations as he entered college at Kent State University as a performance major.

“I was going to be the world’s gift to percussion,” he says, laughing. “And then, I saw all these other percussionists who were better than me.” Knocked off his perch, Schaer regrouped and re-evaluated his future plans, changing his major to music education. “I remembered my middleschool band director, who really had a great life and a great career,” he says. After graduation, Schaer began teaching band in Parma, Ohio, for four years. He then enrolled at the University of Florida in 1979 to earn his master’s degree in music education. It was a move that eventually would inspire thousands of musicians in Manatee and Sarasota counties. “At that time, the corps style of marching band was new but getting popular, and I wanted to learn it,” he says. “For that, the University of Florida was it.” Schaer continued his high school teaching career at Naples High School for three years and then launched Port Charlotte High School’s music program.

SCHAER/PAGE 5A ter five years there, he moved to Southeast High in Manatee County, where he worked for nine years, until a little community began taking shape east of Interstate 75. “I wanted a new challenge,” Schaer says of establishing Lakewood Ranch’s band program. “I felt like I had done all I could do (at Southeast). And starting from nothing and creating something new — I really like that.” But, the Southeast band community didn’t let Schaer leave quietly. The students launched a campaign to honor their outgoing band director, and the school named its newly renovated music building after him. “It was quite an honor from the Southeast band kids,” he says.

BUILDING THE BAND

Still inspired by that corps marching band style he learned at UF, Schaer decided quickly he wanted to install a program at Lakewood that eventually would become one of the most competitive in the country. But, with so much time, energy and money involved in building a competitive program, he knew he needed the support of the Lakewood community at large to make it happen. “In 2000, we went to the Fiesta Bowl to compete for the first time,” Schaer says. “I wanted to show the kids what that was like and to see if this was something we wanted to do. “They bought into it big-time,” he says. “That year, we didn’t even make finals. But six years later, in 2006, we took second place.” For Schaer, Lakewood’s second Fiesta Bowl appearance was the both the culmination of years of dedication as well as the birth of a perennial marching band powerhouse. “I’ll never forget being on the sidelines in Phoenix during the semifinals,” Schaer says. “The kids took the field, and it was just happening. And I turned to all the staff members, and I said, ‘Fellas, I’m just going to sit back and enjoy this.’

“Really, those six years — 2000 to 2006 — were our learning curve,” he says. It was also in those years that Lakewood’s band program created its identity. Some programs are known for their visuals or intricate drills. Lakewood is known for its music.

FINALE

For Lakewood’s band program, Schaer’s retirement isn’t abrupt or unexpected. Rather, it’s the final, beautiful notes of a performance that spans the high school’s entire history. Following a heart attack in September 2004 that forced Schaer on a four-month leave of absence, he knew he wouldn’t be able to keep up with the rigors a band program such as Lakewood’s demands. “Band directors are notorious for creating our own problems,” he says, laughing. “This year, especially, I just was feeling everything. It’s not like it used to be.” Part of Schaer’s recovery required him to set an end date on his career. This year, he’s slowly pulled back to allow Lambert to transition into his new role. “I knew an hour after I met Ron Lambert that I wanted him to be the next band director,” Schaer says. “The band is in good hands, and I know the program is just going to get better and better. I’m very fortunate.” With his wife, Joyce, still working at All Children’s Hospital, Schaer says he has no grand plans for traveling the world. Rather, he’ll enjoy a slower, more leisurely pace for at least a year. “I’m going to take a year to find myself,” he says. “(Before), I played golf every day in June, and that was it. So, I’m definitely going to golf.” Schaer says he also plans to dabble in the instrument-repair industry. And, of course, he’ll catch a Lakewood performance or competition once in a while. “I’ll definitely miss looking in the kids’ eyes after a great performance,” he says. “There have been times in rehearsals that have given me goose bumps. I’ll miss that.” Contact Michael Eng at meng@yourobserver.com.

Science teacher Jane Beach held the pig, Maxwell, in place as Assistant Principal Anthony Losada gave it a kiss.

Braden River Middle teachers pucker up for student rewards Several faculty members had to kiss a pig May 7, as a reward to students. RIVER CLUB — Braden River Middle School teacher Kelly Palmiere clutched a container of Clorox wipes as she walked anxiously toward the center of the school’s gymnasium and took a good look at her new opponent — Maxwell. A few moments later —  and after a few sighs of exasperation — Palmiere, a self-professed germaphobe, reluctantly planted a kiss atop the baby pig’s pink head. Fellow teacher Jennifer Eichelmann soon followed suit. “It was a lot harder than I thought,” she said after the ordeal. “I prefer blowing a kiss (to it) than actually kissing it.”

The teachers, along with Assistant Principal Anthony Losada and school resource officer Deputy Carl McClellan, earned the honor of kissing Maxwell as part of the Kiss-A-Pig fundraiser for Braden River’s Renaissance program. Teachers and administrators who earned the most donations from students over the last two weeks had to kiss the pig at May 7 assembly. “It was pretty funny,” student Abby Hood said of the pig-kissing event. “And, it was a good fundraiser for our school.” As part of the festivities, students also enjoyed performances by Braden River Middle School’s dance team and student unicyclist Levi Waxler. The school’s basketball team also was introduced at the assembly. Contact Pam Eubanks at peubanks@ yourobserver.com.

observed | the worth of a veteran

In defense of Larry Bustle It must have been a really slow news day for Fox 13 investigative “reporter” Doug Smith. Last week, Smith and the news channel ran a nearly six-minute “gotcha” story about Manatee County District 1 Commissioner Larry Bustle and the discount he receives through the Disabled Veterans’ Property Tax Discount, an amendment Florida voters passed in 2006. In the hours before that night’s newscast, Fox 13 promoted the piece heavily, giving the impression Bustle was somehow illegally gaming the system and living the high life in his milliondollar mansion on the Manatee River. In the piece, which online carries the headline, “Unfair tax break has some up in arms,” MICHAEL Smith questioned ENG the morality of Bustle’s discount — a savings of about $7,900 in 2011. He then got a secondary interview with fellow Commissioner Robin DiSabatino, who said she “wouldn’t be able to live with herself” if she took the discount. Smith didn’t stop there and even used part of the piece to question the validity of Bustle’s disability (for which he earned a Purple Heart). According to Smith, DiSabatino “had never noticed Bustle’s disabilities.” But the last time I checked, DiSabatino is neither a doctor nor a military veteran. Here’s the truth about Bustle’s discount: He fits the stringent criteria for the Disabled Veterans’ Property Tax Discount (see box) and is doing nothing illegal in taking said discount. The amendment was passed by Florida voters — with the understanding that it would be open to veterans such as Bustle. So, what business does a broadcast journalist or fellow commissioner have in condemning Bustle for taking it? Short answer: They don’t. And about those disabilities — they’re there. Oh, they’re there. Here’s the story of Bustle’s service to our country. You decide whether it’s worth the savings he has enjoyed through the tax discount.

BUSTLE, THE VETERAN

Even today, more than four decades later, Bustle knows the difference between his life and death was as simple as a tiny selector knob in the hands of a fellow Air Force soldier. Bustle, a Manatee County native, had been appointed to the U.S. Naval Academy by former U.S. Rep. James Haley. Following the Naval Academy, Bustle then enrolled in the Air Force Academy in 1957 to

RESIDENT REACTION Below is a sample of the feedback Larry Bustle received following Fox 13’s story.

Larry Bustle raised the flag during the opening of Bennett Park.

DISABLED VETERANS’ PROPERTYTAX DISCOUNT STIPULATIONS 1. At least 65 years old 2. A Florida resident when entering the military 3. Permanently disabled from combat-related injuries 4. Honorably discharged complete pilot training. Eleven years later, on Feb. 15, 1968, the F-4 Phantom fighter pilot found himself in Da Nang, Vietnam. From that date until the end of his tour on Sept. 11, 1968, Bustle flew 130 combat missions. But, it was No. 68 that changed his life forever. Bustle took the skies in an F-4D Phantom II, a two-person plane, with another soldier seated behind him. About 90 miles north of the demilitarized zone on the coast of North Vietnam, Bustle heard a loud bang, and the cockpit began filling with smoke. “The airplane was on fire in the back, and my backseater ejected,” Bustle remembers. The backseater’s ejection selector knob had the option to eject both seats, and had that knob been turned a different way, Bustle likely wouldn’t have made it out alive. Years later, Bustle learned from a prisoner of war who was returned to the United States that his backseater suffered a compound fracture to his leg. The enemy had taken him to a cave, where he later died. Despite the smoke-filled cockpit, Bustle stayed with the fighter jet, coaxing it over the Gulf of Tonkin. When he got about 5 miles offshore, he ejected. “I was going really fast,” Bustle remembers. “I really didn’t have any concept of speed at that time; I

was just trying to get the heck out of North Vietnam.” Bustle’s arms and legs flailed as if without bones as the wind tore into his body. It pulled both of his shoulders loose and broke both of his knees. About 45 minutes later, a Jolly Green Giant rescue helicopter located Bustle. He was first taken back to Da Nang and later transported to Japan. “They said I was never going to fly again,” Bustle remembers. “I said, ‘We’ll see about that.’” Bustle rehabbed himself back into shape to reclaim his flying status. He later served as a test pilot for the Air Force at Eglin Air Force Base and then held several senior command positions with the military. After 27 years of service, he retired from his post at the Pentagon in 1984 — as a colonel. In addition to the Purple Heart, Bustle earned the Silver Star, the Distinguished Flying Cross, nine Air Medals and more for his service.

COMING HOME

In 1995, Bustle and his wife, Edie, moved back to Bustle’s hometown. He and his two brothers had purchased in 1987 a parcel of land along the Manatee River, which they subdivided into three buildable lots. And, like any home in Manatee County, the value of Bustle’s riverfront home has fluctuated according to what the market has dictated. Today, Bustle says he still struggles from the injuries he sustained on combat mission No. 68. “My rotator cuffs are in bad shape,” he says. “There’s not much in the way of strength of range of motion. Changing a light bulb above my head is a tough proposition. “I had both my knees replaced in 2006,” Bustle says. “But, I hide it pretty good.” And, what about that discount? “I’d gladly trade it for good shoulders and good knees,” he says.

Shame, shame, shame on you, commissioners Joe McClash and Robin DiSabatino, for your very unpopular stance in the press this week regarding Commissioner Larry Bustle’s welldeserved property tax break. It is an embarrassment to the citizens of Manatee County that you question the integrity of this military veteran, a hero to many, who has paid a high price in service to the United States, a man who bears the pain and scars of broken bones, a man who spent many months in full-body brace after being shot down from the skies by our enemies, and a man who today continues a life of service to taxpayers. John and Louise Cumming Palmetto I’m sorry about the recent, shameless, political attack on you for exercising a completely legitimate right veterans like you deserve. Every one of your critics would have certainly done the same if they were able. I just couldn’t believe the brazen grandstanding and was disgusted. I look forward to supporting you in your re-election bid. Wade Thompson Bradenton Thank you for your service to our nation. Nothing will ever repay your service and sacrifice. Michael P. Howe, executive director Sarasota/Manatee MPO

TO THE EDITOR

+ Angry encounter shocks teen cyclist

Dear Editor: My eyes lay fixed on the road as it moved quickly beneath my bike. I was tired, focused and thirsty, finishing up the last leg of my quick afternoon ride. I was speeding through the Country Club of Lakewood Ranch, when a loud car horn came from behind me, nearly knocking me off of my bike from the jolt I received. To my left, I was greeted by an elderly couple: a woman in the driver’s seat, glaring at me as her husband probably yelled obscenities at me. Needless to say, I was livid. I did what most naïve, stupid teenagers do: I acted on impulse and performed a certain inappropriate gesture with my free hand in his direction. I thought to myself as he sped off, soon to be slowed by a crossing golf cart, “Why is it that he was so irritated by my riding on the side of the road, when a golf cart is actually slowing this poor sap down.” I ignored this man and continued my exercise. About two minutes later, I met up with him at a Country Club entrance and waved to him as I sarcastically yelled, “Thank you, sir! That was extremely kind of you!” I waited as he struggled opening his car window — I think his better half locked the window on him — and eventu-

ally opened the car door as he exclaimed that I should not have been riding on this road; I was not allowed, because those roads are private, and it’s not permitted for one to ride his or her bike on those roads. As I heard these words spew from his mouth, I was extremely shocked: It seems this man knew more about my bicycling rights than I did. Florida law states every car must give a bicyclist three feet of leeway on any public road. It also seems to be that many people in the Country Club believe the roads they live on are private. They are not. The Lake Club, adjacent to the Country Club, is private, and I do respect the rights of those residents. The roads of the Country Club are paid for, and maintained by, the Manatee County government. Everybody who lives in Manatee County and pays taxes owns a piece of Arnold Palmer Green. I realize that as a 17-year-old, I don’t pay taxes, but my parents do. I know my rights as a bicyclist and I feel that many people in Manatee don’t respect these rights. I also believe that many people in the Country Club feel that they live in an extremely exclusive, private community. Just because there’s a gate on the border doesn’t mean the roads that lie behind it are private. Matthew Vaadi, 17 Lakewood Ranch High School

MTI students brighten smiles Students in Manatee Technical Institute’s Dental Assisting program provided free dental care to school children during a special clinic. LAKEWOOD RANCH — Braden River Elementary School student Alexis Carrillo was a little nervous as he lay back in a dental chair and readied to open his mouth wide. “I’m really excited about having clean teeth,” Carrillo said, adding he already had learned new things about tooth care. “The stuff on my teeth has bacteria (on it). I never knew what it was. I thought plaque was black.” Carrillo was one of about 30 Manatee County public school children who received free dental care from students in Manatee Technical Institute’s dental assisting program May 4. During the “We Care” Dental Project event, held two to four times annually, MTI students provided pediatric teeth polishing, fluoride treatments, radiographs and oral health screenings under the supervision of local dentists Drs. Allison O’Brien and Joe Wright. “There are a lot of underserved children in Manatee County,” Dental Assisting Program Director Kim Bland said of why MTI partnered with local school nurses to create “We Care.” “We feel we need be part of the answer to the problem.” The event also provides MTI students with hands-on training before entering the workforce.

Fifth Third Bank: Bringing Financial Wellness to You

Restaurant General Manager Terry Hansen said he is thrilled to introduce a sportsthemed dining facility to the area, as well as to add some fun to the concept with an attached, yet separate, ice cream parlor. “What excited me so much was this location,” said Hansen, who came to The Ranch Grill after managing Sam Snead’s American Grill in Sarasota for seven years. “It was too cool a concept to pass up.” The new eateries join existing businesses such as Dunkin’ Donuts, the plaza’s first and only tenant for about two years, as well as a martial arts studio, Pizza Mia restaurant and others. Only one space remains for lease, said Julia DeCastro, director of leasing for Lakewood Ranch Commercial Realty. The 18,000-square-foot Lorraine Corners N.W. plaza, in recent months, has begun bustling with activity, with the opening of several new stores and a wave of patrons from Premier Sports Campus less than a mile away. DeCastro said the center has an ideal location, because it is easy to get to and is surrounded by schools and nearby residential development. “It’s got great visibility,” DeCastro said. “It’s the first place, too, you (reach) coming from Panther Ridge. There’s nothing out there.”

Lakewood resident Peter Beauchamp, who took over ownership of the Pizza Mia restaurant in the plaza May 1, agreed. “This has always been a good plaza, especially with the Dunkin’ Donuts,” he said. “I knew it would be a great draw for Lakewood Ranch and Myakka out east. The plaza would get busier and busier and it has. Parking is a premium.” Dunkin’ Donuts’ Regional Director of Operations Greg O’Neil agreed said the location, as proposed by developers, eventually will be the center of Lakewood Ranch —  a fact that led Dunkin’ Donuts to open there even before the Walgreens was built across State Road 70. “It was a great location, but not at the time (we opened),” he said. “But, Lorraine Corners is going to be the future activity of Lakewood Ranch. (The sports campus) has been great with the events out there. We’ve seen a lot of new faces. We’ve seen return business from people who didn’t know we were at that location — and definitely a good increase in sales.” The tenant mix offered at the plaza, he said, also has proven to be a draw. “It’s kind of a hidden gem in Lakewood Ranch,” O’Neil said of the plaza. “Hopefully, everybody will have the opportunity to drive (to it) … and make it a new destination spot.” Contact Pam Eubanks at peubanks@yourobserver.com.

GROSS/PAGE 1A this investigation is to eliminate persons of interest,” Bristow said. “Anybody who would have come in contact her was (a person of interest). There were other persons of interest in this case.” Thomas Gross returned to Israel, where he resides, shortly after his mother’s funeral, and Bristow said communication with him has been difficult since. The Sheriff’s Office has been in regular contact with Thomas Gross’ attorney but has not yet been able to schedule an interview with Thomas Gross directly. Thomas Gross had been staying with his mother for several days and was scheduled to return to Israel the morning of Jan. 9, when he found her dead in her garage in the 11000 block of Hyacinth Place. Thomas Gross had been in town, in part, to attend a tribute event for his late father, Dr. Samuel Gross, at the University of Florida. Detectives have not released how Ina Gross died but say there was no forced entry into the home. The death was ruled a homicide. “Detectives remain optimistic an arrest will be made,” Bristow said. Ina Gross’s family remains cooperative in the investigation, Bristow said. Bristow said the Sheriff’s Office has turned in 43 pieces of evidence in for DNA testing, which is high compared to the 10 to 12 pieces of evidence usually submitted for homicide investigations. He declined comment on testing results that have come back. Contact Pam Eubanks at peubanks@yourobserver.com.

timeline for hiring is still being developed, he said. Under the recent appointment of new Assistant Superintendent Bob Gagnon, a former administrator at Manatee High School, the district’s curriculum and instruction division, now called the Division of Teaching and Learning, has seen some major changes recently, with six top administrators losing their jobs. Under a new restructuring plan, those positions are being reorganized into three positions, including Pauley’s. Dr. Robin Thompson, Manatee High School’s curriculum coordinator and reading teacher, and a former teacher at Braden River Middle School, will become the executive director of teaching and learning. Dr. Chuck Fradley, principal at Wakeland Elementary School, will serve as director of professional development. The change is expected to save the district between $350,000 and $400,000 annually. “We’re looking for the district to be leaner, but also more in tune with the needs of schools,” McGonegal said of the change. “We have a huge initiative coming up called the Common Core Standards. We wanted this team to be on board to write curriculum and do professional development that in alignment and an assessment that will be in line (with it). McGonegal said legislation is requiring teacher pay to be based heavily on student achievement, so the district is working to make sure students succeed and teachers are getting the professional development they need to earn performance-based pay.

“To open this school (Braden River High), gave me new life,” Braden River High School Principal Jim Pauley said. “We gave birth — rose this school out of the ground. The community and parents and staff working together have made a great school.”

PAULEY/PAGE 1A structure and environment at Braden River High School that is tremendous and we want him to replicate that at other schools in the district, as well,” Manatee County Schools Superintendent Tim McGonegal said. Pauley said he will miss deeply the faculty and students at Braden River but also is eager to support administrators, unify schools and develop a strong plan for making schools conducive to learning and teaching.

“This is an excellent new challenge,” Pauley said of his appointment to a district-level position. “I’ve been school-based all my career.” Pauley, who started as a teacher with the district about 26 years ago, served also as a coach and an assistant principal before opening Braden River High as its principal in 2005. In particular, his time at Braden River, where he and his team worked to foster a sense of unity among students from two rival schools, has proven an invaluable experience for

the future, he said. “If you lay out very clear expectations and you’re consistent with those expectations, most people will accept them,” Pauley said. “All schools have high expectations. We just have to make sure everybody is in the same boat and we’re rowing the same way. Working together, you can do anything. “Excellence is not a one-time thing or a part-time thing,” he said. “You do it right all the time.” The principal position for Braden River High likely will be filled in the summer, although a

GOLDEN GIRL

Lakewood Ranch senior Devin McDermott anchored the Lady Mustangs 4x800 relay to a first-place finish at the Class 3A state meet May 4, in Jacksonville.

The Lakewood Ranch High softball team celebrates after scoring the final run of its 10-0 victory over New Port Richey River Ridge to earn its first trip to the state semifinals.

Lady Mustangs slide into states The Lakewood Ranch softball team will make its first appearance in the state semifinals after defeating New Port Richey River Ridge 10-0. LAKEWOOD RANCH —  The Lakewood Ranch High softball team is on a journey. It began nearly five months ago, when the Lady Mustangs walked onto the field for their first official practice of the 2012 season and will culminate this week at the National Training Center in Clermont — the site of the Class 6A state finals. The Lady Mustangs have made several stops along the way, including returning home to win their third consecutive district championship April 20, and their first-ever regional championship —  a 10-0 victory over New Port Richey River Ridge in the Class 6A-Region 3 finals — May 1. Now, Lakewood is in the final leg of its journey — one it hopes will result in the program’s first state championship. “I don’t even know how to describe it,” senior pitcher Huntyre Elling said. “I’ve always wanted to go to states. I knew we could do it. I don’t think it’s even completely set in to me yet that we’re going, and it (probably won’t) until next week when

we’re going up and playing.” Teammate Taylor Newton agreed. “It feels pretty great,” Newton said. “I’m pumped and ready to win. It would mean everything (to win a state title). I’m really

LAKEWOOD RANCH — Devin McDermott didn’t have time to be nervous. The Lakewood Ranch senior knew exactly what she had to do. In the back of her mind, it had always been something she wanted to do. She just never thought it would be an option. But when the opportunity arose just hours before she and her teammates were scheduled to walk out onto the track at the University of North Florida for the Class 3A state meet May 4, the pressure began to mount, and McDermott was overcome with a wave of emotion. After agreeing to anchor the Lady Mustangs 4x800 meterrelay for the first time since her freshman year, McDermott did her best to push aside the doubt that had slowly begun to set in. She went back to tying matching green ribbons in her teammates hair. “I just tried to stay focused,” McDermott said. “I had done this before. I used to anchor my freshman year.” A few hours later, McDermott walked onto the track for her final state meet. And after three years of hard work, sweat and tears, McDermott and her teammates weren’t about to settle for anything less than their best. “I was little nervous —  OK a lot nervous,” McDermott said. “We had plenty of time to get warmed up, and we were pretty focused. You can always tell it’s a state meet when our warm-ups are completely silent. “You have a lot of thoughts in your head, and it came (more quickly) than I could’ve even imagined,” McDermott said. As the gun sounded, McDermott watched Natalie Novak, Olivia Ortiz and Kristin Zarrella

COMMENT

2012 proves to be Lakewood’s ‘Year of the Champion’

JEN BLANCO

Every athlete across the board strives for perfection in one way or another. Whether it’s setting a personal record, winning a championship or moving on to play at the next level, each individual athlete has his or her own idea of what it means to be a successful athlete. And in many cases, that notion of success is often defined by state championships.

Lakewood Ranch High senior Devin McDermott described it as “one perfect moment.” Lakewood Ranch High junior Taylor Newton called it “everything.” Braden River High alum Nicole Tira described it as “any girl’s dream.” State titles are coveted, but they don’t just happen every day. Apparently, someone forgot to mention that to Lake-

wood Ranch High’s athletes this year. It’s been the “Year of the Champion” at Lakewood Ranch, as the Mustangs have won seven individual or team state titles this season. Lakewood started its state title run this fall, with Olivia Ortiz capturing an individual state title in cross country and the boys golf team capturing the Class 2A state tournament. Swimmers Danielle Valley and Will Kazokas and tennis

players Arnav and Arsav Mohanty, Cari Berry and Ashley Bongart all added state titles of their own earlier this year. Most recently, the girls 4x800 relay of McDermott, Ortiz, Kristin Zarrella and Natalie Novak won gold at the Class 3A state meet May 4. And the school may not be done yet, with the softball team competing in the state Final 4 May 9-10, and the baseball team in the midst of

its regional tournament run. The softball team has never won a state title, and the baseball team won its one and only state title in 2003. Now with only one week at the most left in the spring season, Lakewood is making a strong case for having one of the area’s most talented athletic programs. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Lakewood has to make room in its trophy case for another state title by this time next week.

Lakewood senior pitcher Seth McGarry, who suffered an elbow injury in the offseason, made his third start of the season, leading the Mustangs to a 8-1 victory.

McGarry hurls Lakewood Ranch to regional semis

The Lakewood Ranch extended its season with a 8-1 victory over Tampa Sickles in the Class 6A-Region 3 quarterfinals.

Cornerstone Church Three Worship services Saturday Night Modern Style - 6:00 pm Sunday Morning Traditional - 9:00 am Sunday Morning Contemporary - 10:45 am

LAKEWOOD RANCH —  Even though the game wasn’t scheduled for another two hours, Lakewood Ranch High senior Seth McGarry was standing on the mound, staring down to home plate. The Mustangs right-hander, who was making only his third start of the season because of an elbow injury he suffered during the offseason, visualized the game he was about to pitch. He saw throws hitting their mark and batters off-balance. The visualization technique, one he learned he learned a few years ago from watching St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Jaime Garcia on a television pre-game show, paid off for McGarry, who shut down visiting Tampa Sickles. McGarry threw 55 pitches, allowing three hits and striking out five while leading the host Mustangs to an 8-1 victory over the Gryphons in a Class 6A-Region 3 quarterfinal May 3. McGarry, who will play for Florida Atlantic University next year, suffered a tender elbow and spent much of the season serving as Lakewood’s DH. The transition to not being out on the field with his teammates was difficult for McGarry initially, but he knew it was ultimately in his best interest. “My favorite thing to do is being in the field having fun and talking to all of the players,” McGarry said. “Hitting is a plus, but I really like to be on the mound and in the field.” Now with his elbow finally starting to feel better, McGarry, who went 2-for-4 with a stolen base, an RBI and a run scored, is making his way back into the Mustangs starting rotation at just the right time. “It feels a lot better,” McGarry said of his elbow. “I’ve been rehabbing and working it

out. This year has just been getting back to it, and I’m starting to come alive at the end of the year when we really need it.” “We have been waiting for Seth McGarry to be healthy all year, and it was worth the wait,” Lakewood coach Mike Mullen said. “I think we did the right thing with him by putting him on the shelf early, and we got him a couple good starts. “We had planned to run him out for a while, and then, we found ourselves in a good situation. It was a very good pitching performance for us. It just one of those things where we’ve got to kind of corral and think more about the kids than we are about our organization. We’ve got to keep kids healthy.” McGarry pitched five solid innings for the Mustangs before turning the ball over to Jake Axley in relief. Axley pitched the final two innings, allowing two hits and a walk while striking out the Gryphons final batter to seal the victory. Lakewood took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second inning. Bryan Vanvranken drew a walk and eventually came around to score on a RBI single by Brad Zunica. The Mustangs took control of the game in the fourth inning, when they scored seven runs on six hits, two walks, five errors and a wild pitch. With the win, Lakewood traveled to Tampa King for a regional semifinal May 8. The winner will advance to the regional finals. Results from the Lakewood’s regional semifinal appearance were unavailable as of press time Tuesday. Be sure to check www.YourObserver.com to see how the Mustangs fared.

How long have you been playing softball? I’ve been playing since I was 8 years old. I wanted to play volleyball, but when I was young, they didn’t have a (youth) rec volleyball league where I lived. I decided to play softball, and I ended up liking it.

What do you enjoy the most about softball? Playing with a team. I probably could never play an individual sport, because I would get bored with myself. I like the interaction.

Kristin Zarrella, Devin McDermott, Olivia Ortiz and Natalie Novak celebrate after breaking their school record by six seconds and winning the 4x800 relay at the Class 3A state meet May 4 in Jacksonville.

TRACK/PAGE 13A put the Lady Mustangs in position to finish in the top three. McDermott stood at the finish line anxiously awaiting the baton; and as she began to run the final 800 of her high school career, McDermott focused on the one thing she had to do — stay with the girl in front of her. With 200 meters to go, McDermott passed the Estero runner. She kicked it into high gear and refused to look back for the final 150 meters. It wasn’t until she was crossing the finish line with a huge smile across her face and her finger pointed toward the sky that McDermott finally allowed herself to relax and revel in the moment. The Lady Mustangs crossed the finish line in 9:14.15, breaking their

school record by six seconds and beating state runner-up Estero by four seconds. McDermott also ran a personal best 2:15. “That was the fastest 800 I’ve ever run,” McDermott said. “I was so pumped up. I knew what I had to do, and I just focused on that one thing. At the 150, I just started running for my life, and I didn’t look back.” As her teammates rushed over to congratulate her, the reality that the Lady Mustangs had achieved their ultimate goal of winning a state title finally set in. “I’m not normally one to cry over those things, but it was a flood of relief,” McDermott said. “For the past three years, the core five of us have been together, and it’s always been one thing after another. This is something we’ve been aiming for,

and it was an amazing feeling. At first I was nervous, but I’m definitely glad I had that feeling. It was the ultimate experience. “Over the past three years, we’ve watched each other grow and get better,” McDermott said. “We’ve put in the time and (mental) effort piece by piece to make this one perfect moment.” Following their emotional high, the girls prepared to take the track in the remainder of their respective events. Ortiz finished second in the mile before suffering a broken femur in the two-mile, and McDermott finished seventh in the two-mile. Zarrella finished 13th in the 800 and the 4x400 relay of Zarrella, Mariah Higgins, Novak and Ashley Platt finished 12th. Now with her final high school practice and state meet behind, McDermott will turn her attention to the next phase of her career — running for the University of Florida. Initially, McDermott thought she’d attend college out of state, but at the beginning of the year, she set time goals for herself. And after achieving those goals, more options began to open. At that point, McDermott decided to run for the Gators, and she couldn’t be happier with her decision. “What I didn’t expect the most is where I’ve ended up,” McDermott said. “I was at the top my freshman year, and then they all came in and wiped me out. I learned I’m not the best, and I have to work from that. “I’m thankful they came in and pushed me,” McDermott said. “I want them to realize things don’t always end up the way you want them to, but no matter what it is you have to keep doing what you’re doing, have each others backs, move one, learn, grow and get better.” Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@ yourobserver.com.

Thunder’s season ends in regional quarterfinals The Out-of-Door Academy baseball team lost 6-1 to St. Petersburg Catholic.

FAMILY • COSMETIC • IMPLANT • PREVENTIVE • EMERGENCY

ST. PETERSBURG —  Tyler Dietrich and Austin Hoppe stood in the visiting dugout and looked on as the Thunder headed to the plate in the top of the sixth inning. Heeding the advice of their coaches, the two Out-of-Door Academy freshmen grabbed their baseball hats and sunglasses. They tossed their shades on upside down and put their hats on sideways, looking to rally teammates back from a 6-1 deficit. It didn’t take long for their teammates to catch on and before long half of ODA’s roster was sporting a similar look. And while its temporary new look didn’t keep the Thunder from seeing their season come to an end with a 6-1 loss to St. Petersburg Catholic in the Class 3A-Region 3 quarterfinals May 2, it reminded the players the importance of staying competitive while having fun at the same time. “That’s the one thing the young kids have a difficult time with is they want to compete so bad and do well that they don’t understand that baseball is a game of failure,” ODA coach Billy Dietrich said. “It’s important (to have fun). We preach to go out and have fun and play the game the right way.” St. Pete jumped out to a 5-0 lead, scoring four runs in the bottom of the second inning. ODA, which notched a hit in every inning except the top of the sixth, scored its lone run in the top of the third inning. Jake Romine hit a double and advanced to third on a single by Tyler Dietrich. Romine came around to score on a RBI by Zach Hoppe.

ODA junior Alex Horan pitched the first inning of the Thunder’s 6-1 loss to St. Petersburg Catholic May 2.

ODA finished its best season in school history with a 19-5 record and reached the regional tournament for the second consecutive season. The Thunder loses two seniors — Zach Hoppe and Joey Grano — from this year’s 13-man roster. But with six freshmen and an eighthgrader in its starting lineup, the future looks bright for the Thunder. “I’m so proud of Zach and Joey for the leadership they’ve had this year,” Billy Dietrich said. “The future is good — there’s no question. We won’t sneak up on anybody. “It was a great season,” he said. “We played top-notch competition this year, and we’re going to continue to do that next year.” Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@yourobserver.com.

competitive and it would be nice to represent Lakewood Ranch High School with a softball state win.” The Lady Mustangs nearly reached the state semifinals in 2010, but a 5-0 loss to eventual state runner-up Naples ended Lakewood’s season. Elling and Newton both were on the team then, making this year’s trip to the Final Four even more enjoyable. Lakewood was loaded with talent then and has continually produced top-notch talent in the couple of years ever since; but there’s something to be said for this year’s team. They are different. They are special. They all get along. They communicate on the field. And most importantly, they know how to win as a team. “I thought it from the beginning,” Lakewood coach Tony Cummins said. “This is a special group — a really special group. I have more faith in those girls than probably any other team I’ve coached. It’s been a phenomenal experience.” Prior to the regional championship game, the players gather together for a team meeting and had dinner while watching “Rudy.” “We had faith,” Elling said. “We were

pumped up. We had motivational stuff the entire time after school.” The Lady Mustangs came out pumped up and ready to go. Lakewood’s momentum carried out onto the field as the Lady Mustangs posted their eighth shutout of the season. Elling earned her 20th win on the mound, allowing three hits and a walk while striking out seven in five innings of work. Lakewood scored 10 runs on 10 hits and didn’t strike out at the plate for the sixth time this season. The Lady Mustangs held an 8-0 lead after two innings, but Elling continued to pitch as if the scoreboard said otherwise. “It makes me pumped up and so excited, but on the mound, I have to pretend its 0-0 still,” Elling said. “I can’t lighten up or anything.” As regional champions, the Lady Mustangs traveled to Clermont to face Pembroke Pines in the Class 6A state semifinals May 9. The winner will face the winner of the other state semifinal between Niceville and Eau Gallie. “We are super excited,” Cummins said. “They are not only great kids, but there is as fine of softball talent in that dugout as I believe you’ll find anywhere.” Contact Jen Blanco at jblanco@yourobserver.com.

Thanks to the successful treatment of our rotator cuff injuries, we are all actively enjoying our passion for SPORTS once again. Rotator cuff muscle injuries are very common. Due to the function of these muscles, sports which involve shoulder rotation such as tennis and golf, often put the rotator cuff muscles under great stress, resulting in an inability to play. A variety of treatment options are available.

Israel Washington, Ishmael Nelson, Colton Walker and Jesse Joseph checked out the science exhibits.

Students experiment with science night Families at Bashaw Elementary School learned how fun science could be during the school’s Family Science Night April 26. Attendees checked out interactive displays from organizations, such as Mote Marine, the South Florida Museum, and also enjoyed hands-on science activities and lessons.
