    The GFWC Lutz-Land O Lakes WomansClub is putting the word out that it is seek-ing donations for the annual Womans ClubFlea Market at the Old Lutz School.

    The annual sale is a great way for peopleto clear out closets, attics, garages, patios andsheds and to help good causes at thesame time, according to Pat Serio, co-chair-woman of the flea market.

    While residents can clear some of their

    clutter others can benefit from a bargain,Serio said, noting the items at the flea mar-ket are priced to sell quickly.

    We have the best prices, Serio said.As always, the flea market will feature a

    wide range of goods. There will be items forthe home, such as linens, lamps, china, andpots and pans.

    Big pieces of furniture will be undertents outdoors, and plants will be sold, too,Serio said.

    There also will be a room called Trinketsand Treasures that will feature higher quality

    and higher priced items, Serio said.In previous years, the club has had a half-

    price sale the weekend after the fleamarket, but has decided not to do so thisyear, Serio said. Any items that are left overafter the flea market will be distributed to avariety of charitable organizations, she said.

    Putting on the flea market is a big proj-ect, Serio noted.

    Generally, about 60 club members volun-teer to help receive donations, to sort

    Our Lady of the Rosaryoffers low-gluten hostsBy B.C.

    A pivotal moment during the celebrationof the Catholic Mass occurs during com-munion, when believers come forward toreceive the Body of Christ.

    But some members of Our Lady of theRosary were choosing to stay in their pews,because they have Celiac disease, whichmeans they cannot ingest gluten, aprotein found in wheat.

    There are different levelsof intolerance to gluten andwheat products, said theRev. Ron Aubin, pastor atOur Lady of the RosaryChurch at 2348Collier Parkway inLand O Lakes.Apparently, somepeople react severe-ly and can be quitesick. So, they bypassthe host receivingthe Body of Christ.

    When one womanasked if there anythingthe church could doabout it, the church decid-ed to look into the issue.

    Church doctrine re-quires there be at least atrace of gluten, in orderto be considered validmatter for the Eucharist,according to theNational Conference of

    Catholic Bishops.So, we did a little research and we dis-

    covered there are low-gluten hosts, Aubinsaid.

    The church is now using low-glutenwafers made by the Benedictine Sisters ofPerpetual Adoration, in Clyde, Missouri.The sisters have been baking communion

    hosts for generations and spent 10 yearsworking to develop a low-gluten host.

    The host the sisters produce contains .01percent gluten.

    Our Lady of the Rosary began servingthe hosts about a month ago.

    What we did, was, we have reservedone small part of the church a small sec-tion. Were calling that our low-glutensection, Aubin said.

    Land O Lakes High School has nice foot-ball and baseball fields. But if you go pastthem, you might see something unusual.

    Like a barn with livestock, and studentstraining them.

    People think were crazy, said sopho-more Augusta Browder. They think werejust out there rolling around with them (theanimals). They dont think were being seri-ous about it.

    But theyre not being crazy; theyre beingcompetitive. The schools members ofFuture Farmers of America, now known asthe National FFA Organization, are preppingtheir livestock to be judged along withother animals at the Florida State Fair andPasco County Fair next month and othercompetitions throughout the year.

    Some of the animals stay on school prop-erty. Other students own their animals andhave homes that can maintain them, so theylive on their land.

    But wherever they stay, caring for themis hard work.

    Browder gets up around 5:30 a.m., everymorning, to feed her animals at her home,and does it again at the end of the evening.She cant take extended time off, and shealso has to practice with them so theyll per-form well when the time comes to bejudged in categories such as appearance and

    If you see Charlie Griffiths riding his bi-cycle in Zephyrhills, the 70-year-old mightbe on a little ride just to keep the bloodpumping.

    Or he just might be training for a 40Krace.

    Charlies always been a cyclist, said hiswife, Mary Griffiths. The couple actuallymet online a few years ago on a specialwebsite for fitness-conscious singles. NowMary, 63, does a bit of riding herself: Bothof them won cycling medals at the recentFlorida International Senior Games andState Championships in their respectiveage groups.

    But while Mary has been more of aswimmer and even did some scuba diving,Charlie is the one whos always preferredcycling. He joined a racing club at 16 in hisnative Liverpool, England, but had to give itup when family demands came first.

    Later in life he got back into riding, andwhen he retired and moved to Florida 10years ago, he saw an advertisement forlocal races. Being in good shape, he decid-ed to join the 55-and-over age group andsigned up for a race.

    He finished last.Th
