    It sure feels like Summer, but we still have until the 21st before the official kick-off. Then a long haul from there; as you all know. Being a native Floridian, a.k.a. Florida Cracker, I am quite used to the heat. Inside this issue are some excep-tional Prom pictures from the resident high schoolers. It looks like they all had a very exciting time.

    For the July issue, send us your beginning of summer, vacation and outdoor fun pictures and any special stories you would like to share. We are loading up our Facebook with all the extra pictures and now video from community events. Visit our Facebook at YOUR Community Newsletters and become a friend. You can then post your comments, events, and pictures during the month. By the way, Florida Cracker means the old-time Florida Cowboys who use to crack their whips while herd-ing, not a crispy wheat square. J Happy Fathers Day to all the Dads in Meadow Pointe!!

    A common sight in Meadow Pointe 1 is retired NY 30-year career fire-fighter, Jack Whalen and his trusty Dalmatian companion, Queenie 2 in a decorative fire engine golf cart commemo-rating the FDNY 343 brother firefighters, and heroes of 9-11. A WW2 Navy veteran, Jack has been a MP1 resident since July 1996. I originally purchased this golf cart for therapy reasons for my wife of 58 years, Louise, who struggles with Alzheimers says Captain Jack. I procured the decals and bell engraved with F.D.N.Y. The axe belonged to my father,

    and my grandson handmade the ladders, then put it all together. Back in the 60s, the original Queenie was part of our firefighting team and came to live with us at the firehouse as a puppy. She would hear the relays almost before the bells would ring, jump on the rig, and respond along with us to alarms. Jack lost his leg from complications after he fell through the floor of a burning

    building, but it doesnt seem to slow him down!

    So when you see Jack and Queenie 2 on their daily runs to Target, or taking a spin around the streets of Meadow Pointe 1, be sure to wave, and remember those who gave the ultimate sacrifice trying to help others almost 10 years ago at the twin towers.

    Jack would be happy to share his firefight-ing stories and show his fire engine to any families interested. I love to have children see my fire engine and enjoy, said Jack. He can be reached via email at [email protected] v

    It didnt take long for Pat Asklar, a West Virginia native, to get involved in Meadow Pointe after she and her husband Bernie moved to the new community in May 1993. A registered nurse by trade, Pat started attend-ing CDD meetings to understand just what a CDD was. She was one of several residents to start the Village Representatives, which has developed into the Meadow Pointe Commu-nity Council (MPCC). Pat was interested in sharing information about the community to residents and wanted to be involved with the monthly newsletter.

    I ran for MP Supervisor unopposed for two four-year terms, from 2000-2008, and am cur-rently serving on the Board until 2012, having been appointed to seat 3 when Supervisor

    Mark Foster moved out of MP. I feel it is important to serve all our residents well, by maintaining and keeping our community in excellent shape, as well as enhance Meadow Pointe with capital projects. It is not just the things we can see, that are important to Meadow Pointe. Keeping all of the infrastruc-ture maintained is vital to the health of our community.

    My vision for our District is to see it grow and thrive, because it is a wonderful place to live. Meadow Pointe staff do an excellent job for our community and the MPCC are a great group of resident volunteers. I want to con-tinue to see our CDD Board keep our District fiscally sound at all times. v

    Patios, pools and lanais are all season living spaces in Florida. They are very important to buyers and can make or break a sale. Approach decorating an outdoor space whether its a screened lanai or open patio as you would an indoor living space. It should reflect easy living, ready for the new buyers to just pour the lemonade.

    To start make sure the area has been thoroughly cleaned. If the lanai or pool deck needs to be repainted, get it done because it will more then pay for itself. Clear the area of any dead plants, old or broken furniture, clutter of any kind. If the area is screened, replace any that are in disrepair. If you have a large area divide the space into different purposes. One section for dining, another for lounging or hobbies like gardening or stargaz-ing. Like indoor rooms, outdoor spaces need a focal point around which furnishings revolve. This can be a grouping of furniture, flooring

    design, fountain, plants, etc. Dont over crowd the space, when selling you want to give the impres-sion of a larger area.

    Remember to tie the space into the yard around it, this is your view. The lawn needs to be cut, edge and fertilized. Fences should be cleaned or painted, hedges trimmed. When buyers see a well

    maintained home and yard they assume that the items they cant readily see are also maintained.

    Finish off the area with lighting and accessories. You can use lighting made to weather the ele-ments or inexpensive table lamps from Target. Candles are also great in all sizes and shapes. Next use bright textured throw pillows to warm up the

    furniture and a throw rug to define a space. Plants and flowers are the finishing touch.

    Paying attention to your backyard space will get you a faster sale and for more money. For more information on selling your home contact Liz DeAmbrose at Coldwell Banker 813-956-6487 or [email protected] v

    Marie Philostine Lorient (also affectionately known as Grandma) was born on May 12, 1911, in Cap Haitian, Haiti. Her mother was Sydalise Joseph Bienaime and father was Philostin Bi-enaime. The Bienaimes had three children, two boys and one girl. Marie married the love of her life, Jacque Norvi-lus Lorient and had five children, Jacque Lorient, Rene Lorient, Luckner Lorient, Appolos Lori-ent and Josue Lorient. The couple have 14 grandchildren and 23 great grandchildren. The Lorients raised their grand-daughter, Yolene Lorient since she was one month old and raised Herivau Lorient.

    Marie enjoyed cooking, sewing, and walking. Her favorite food is red snapper over a bed of red beans and rice. Grandma enjoyed sewing clothing of different fashions and she was famous for her deli-cious fried chicken. Nowadays, she loves attending church conferences and revivals every chance she gets. Her favorite song is Simen Bon Gren Nan/Spread the Good Seed and See the Reward in Heaven.

    Marie credits her relationship with Jesus Christ as the source of her living. Maries passions are pray-ing and singing joyous songs unto the Lord. Marie Lorient is a prayer warrior. If asked what Bible verse best describes this Phenomenal Woman, it would be Proverbs 31:10-31. A Virtuous WomanStrength and Honor are her clothing. She shall rejoice in time to come.She opens her mouth with Wisdom, and on her tongue is the law of kindness.She watches over the ways of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.Her family and friends rise up and call her blessed; her husband also praised her.Many daughters have done well, But you excel them all.Charm is deceitful and beauty is passing, But a woman who fears the LORD, she shall be Praised. v

    Many dogs know that they will get a treat if they put their rear on the floor when someone says, Sit. The dog sits, the hand is extended, and the dog takes the treat. Do you think Fido learned that from us? Has your dog or cat ever watched you walk back to the couch from the kitchen? Chances are, you came back with something that smelled yummy, and then you sat. Good human! thought your pet. You proceeded to eat that yummy smelling treat right in front of your furry friend!

    Americas weight problem isnt just a human issue. Its affecting our pets, too. Of the 171 million dogs and cats in the US, over 84 million are overweight and 23 million of those are considered obese. Stud-ies show that losing weight can prevent many health issues for pet owners and their pets.

    To raise awareness to pet obesity, Camp Bow Wow has announced The Furry Fitness Challenge, a fun way for you and your pet to lose weight together and have a chance to win prizes. Glen Hatchell of Home Buddies by Camp Bow

    Wow, a pet sitting and dog training service in Meadow Pointe, says Health is one of the focus areas of our Bow Wow Buddies Foundation. The Foundation already funds two resi-dents at the Colorado State University Animal Cancer Center. The Furry Fitness Challenge isnt all about the

    animals, thoughits about the pet owner, too. A pet can be a great motivator to go for that walk!

    The Furry Fitness Challenge will run for seven weeks,

    from June 11, 2011 until Au-gust, 6, 2011. Your workout teamyou and your dog or catwill go to the Home Buddies Weigh-In on June 11 to do your official Weigh-In at LA Fitness, 6411 County Line Road (at Bruce B. Downs Blvd). For those who cant make it that Saturday, you will have up to a week to enter. The workout team with the largest combined percent-age of weight lost wins.

    Camp Bow Wow will give 30 participants around the country a Flip Video Camera, making it entertaining and interactive to track workouts and weight loss efforts through videos that will be shared on the Furry Fitness Challenge website.

    The Furry Fitness Challenge Grand Prize is one-year of services from Home Buddies or Camp Bow Wow, a $3,000 value. According to Hatchell, local businesses are also donating prizes to be awarded to those who sign-up at LA Fitness. Home Buddies provides pet sit-ting and dog training in Meadow Pointe, and Camp Bow Wow is a doggie day care and overnight facility with Camps near the Tampa International Airport and in Riverview.

    For times and location for the Official Weigh-In on June 11, visit the Home Buddies website at or call (813) 935-PETS (7387). v

    Warning for Dog Owners

    Keep your dogs away from palm nuts (these are the orange round ball like nuts that come from palm trees when the pods break open). When eaten by a dog they can cause a bowl blockage thus the intestine ruptures and the dog becomes septic which is very painful and deadly. Please be

    sure to keep your yard free of the palm nuts with prop-er landscape maintenance.

    We lost our dear Abby, Cocker Spaniel 2 1/2 years old, on April 7th from a palm nut. We had no idea that she had eaten one until it was far too late. Her symptoms were like she had a bladder infection and the next thing we knew, in less than 8 hours, we had to let her go so she did not suffer any more. We hope this helps other residents avoid this from happening to their precious pets.

    Ask about our new shine treatment!

    Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay is part of the nations largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network. Weve been around for more than 45 years in Hillsborough, Polk and Pasco counties, and more than 100 years nationally. Our mission is to provide children who are facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives forever. And we accomplish that mission every day right here in Pasco County.

    Most children served by Big Brothers Big Sisters are in single-parent and low-income families or households where a parent is incarcerated. Our mentors help these children discover and realize their potential to succeed and thrive in lifejust by being a friend. When at-risk children have Big Brothers or Big Sisters in their lives, they gain a lotnamely increased confidence, greater success in school and a more positive outlook on life. (We have the research to prove it!) It costs about $1,000 a year to support a match between a Big and a Little, which pays for background screening,

    training and ongoing support and supervision. On the other hand, incarcerating a youth costs $60,000 a year. Keeping these kids out of trouble is absolutely a worthwhile investment! Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay currently has more than 2,000 Little Brothers and Little Sisters who are matched up with mentors and weve been serving that number consistently for many years now. But we always have more youth waiting for mentors. We especially need Big Brothers in Meadow Pointe.

    Most of our volunteers are what we call community-based Bigsthey spend nine hours a month doing low or no-cost activities out in the community with their Littles. We also have a site-based program where Bigs visit their Littles at school for an hour a week.

    We have a strong site-based program here in Pasco County. Every week during the school year, youll also find high school student Big Brothers and Big Sisters visiting their Littles at various elementary schools. For every site-based volunteer in Pasco, we have

    almost two community-based volunteers.

    Meadow Pointe residents who are interested in becoming a mentor or donating funds to support our programs can call Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa Bay at (813) 769-3600 or enroll online at v

    Sand Pine Elementary Schools second Brusters Night of the school year was another great suc-cess! Brusters Night was held on Wednesday, April 27, 2011, and the weather made for a perfect evening for ice cream! Principal, Mr. Todd Cluff, and Assistant Principal, Mrs. Karyn Kinzie, did another fantastic job greeting all of their cheerful customers. A portion of the proceeds and tips went directly to the school. A special thanks to all of the families that participated, Mr. Cluff and Mrs. Kinzie, along with Brusters for all of their support!



    Students who are behind on cred-its will have a few options to get their selves caught up. We will be offering the following credit re-covery programs this summer: Ex-tended School Year @ Wiregrass Ranch HS- this program will run from June 15-June 30. There will be bus transportation.

    Friday, May 6th is the deadline to register @ WRHS. Pasco ESchool & Florida Virtual School- These online classes give the student much flexibility. If a student wishes to enroll in FVS or Pasco ESchool, they must see theirguid-ance counselor before the end of the school year.


    Although students and teachers have the opportunity to rest and recharge from June to August, learning does not have to stop during the sweltering days of sum-mer. WRHS is proud to offer the Summer Learnin @ the Ranch website to better equip students to reach their highest potential.

    This resource, which will be housed on the WRHS website, contains many useful tools to help students continue to improve, including suggested and required reading lists, online course content for advanced classes, common supply lists, key dates and vital contacts. Research shows that as students read and engage their own academic growth, they have a greater chance of surpassing their peers in the competitive 21st century global economy.

    Check out the Summer Learnin @ the Ranch website starting June 1st to see how your family can use this crucial time as an investment for the future. If stu-dents are scheduled for Advanced Placement classes and Honors classes, please review the sum-mer reading requirements on the website.


    WRHS Volleyball will be holding a camp for incoming 6th graders to incoming 9th grades on Aug. 1 through Aug. 4. The cost of the camp is $100.00 and is from 9-3. Please contact Mindy Kantor at [email protected] or at the school at 813-346-6000 for more information.

    15. Trash cans, recycling bins and bags of yard waste dont add to curb appeal. They must be kept out of sight except on pickup days. The garage is the best place for trash cans and recycling bins. If you must keep your trash cans outside, however, please have the courtesy to hide them and your yard waste behind shrubbery or fencing.

Sam Ogden, the mailbox medic has been repairing and painting mailboxes in Meadow Pointe and the surrounding area for the last year and a half. In fact, its possible many of you reading this have utilized his services. A basic res-toration cost is $30. The process consists of cleaning the mailbox with mildew cleaner, removing the box and numbers, sanding the entire post and arms, and filling in all ex-posed cracks with spackle/sealant.

    The post and arms are then painted with the required Meadow Pointe colors and the box and numbers are put back on and reattached to the post. If there is major or minor repairs Sam, will assess what needs to be done in order to get your mailbox back to pristine condition. If needed, he can even replace the post if it is beyond repair. Call Sam Ogden, the Mailbox Medic, at 813-406-4545 and get your mailbox restored.

    Cat CrusadersTropical Nights is a Dinner/ Silent Auction held once a year to benefit many local animal rescue charities. This year it is August 13, at 7 p.m. at the Wyndham Westshore. 2009 and 2010s Tropical Nights raised over $170,000 for 68 non-profit local animal charities, and has helped find forever homes for over 1200 lucky animals.

    While there wont be animals for adoption at the event, there will be many incredible items (including jewelry, trips, and more), and the best part is all the money raised goes to the animals.

    Jeanine Cohen, a volunteer with Tampa Cat Crusaders has already started working on donations for this years event. We have to start early to get the big ticket items, like the trip to Key West, but the local community comes through also. We had a wonderful The Shops at Wiregrass Gift Basket last year which included gift cards to the shops, lunch, a manicure, a massage, as well as a donation from the management office themselves. We expect to put another one together this year, as the Shops at Wiregrass is incredibly generous to many charities, including the animal rescues. To purchase tickets,

    or donate items, please e-mail [email protected] or call 813-472-9700

    Cats currently being fostered in Meadow Pointe that are ready for adoption:

    While not working, Jeanine is also fostering Her-cules and Candy who are looking for their forever home. But this time it has to be a real forever home. You see Hercules was adopted for back in the sum-mer of 2010 when he was a kitten. Somehow, in the fall of 2010 he ended up in an animal kill shelter in Virginia. His microchip literally saved his life. Because Cat Crusaders registers all the microchips to themselves, they were tracked down and although it was a 6 week ordeal, Hercules arrived safely back to Tampa and to Cat Crusaders.

    Just before Christmas 2010 the group thought they got the best present of allHercules found a home with a person who had previously adopted a kitten from Cat Crusaders. So not only would he have a home hed have a kitty friend as well; Candy.

    Candy is a sweet kitty who had gotten very sick and nearly died due to somehow ingesting a toxin.

    However, with much love from her foster family and a great vet, Candy had a full recovery. Two great cats with unusual stories that made them extra special to the group.

    Fast forward to May 2011. Candy and Hercules adopter relocated to North Carolina and could no longer keep them, and had no means of getting them back to Tampa. 2 dedicated Cat Crusaders volun-teers made the 10 hour drive, each way, to retrieve these traveling kitties and bring them back to Tampa.

    So sadly twice now Hercules has been adopted, taken out of state, and surrendered back to Cat Crusaders. He is a complete lap cat and loves to be held! Candy needs a little more time to warm up, but once she does, she is a lovebug. Our goal is to find he and Candy a stable forever home together. [email protected] or call 472-9700. v

    Dr. John Long Middle School Became an Official BookCrossing Zone to Promote Literacy Amongst Students and the Community

    On May 10th, Dr. John Long Middle School became an Official BookCrossing Zone (OBCZ) and gave away over 1,000 books to students. BookCrossing is a social networking site that gives new life to old books through their mission of connecting people through books. It is the Worlds Library with 927,126 Book Crossers and 7,960,775 books traveling throughout 132 countries.

    The basic premise of BookCrossing is to Remember the Rs: Read. Ready. Release. Repeat. Students were asked to

    read a book (that some of them received during the event). Get the book ready to go by journaling about the book they read. Release the book into the wild. Lastly, to repeat with enthusiasm! Bookcrossing is sustainable literacy at its best through the recycling of books.

    To make the event memorable for students, the campus was transformed into a pirate island that was invaded by official Gasparilla pirates and their helpers. Pirates from the Krewe of the Shamrock, the Grace OMalley Krewe and others volunteered to hand out books to students.

    A select group of students participated in the pirate themed scavenger hunt, collecting doubloons as they followed clues

    around campus eventually leading them to the schools Scholastic Book Fair where each student was allowed to select a free book and was encouraged to register it on the BookCrossing website.

    In conjunction with the above activities, JLMS also coordinated a family technology night at the Barnes and Noble located at the Shops at Wiregrass. Nearly 200 students and their families attended the event, learning how to get the most out of their eReaders or other electronic devices they use for reading books.

    Dr. John Long Middle School hopes that while harnessing this 21st century technology they will promote an on-going book swap amongst students and the community thus promoting literacy. v
