    A Target store in Odessa is one of 13stores that the national discount chain plansto close in January, according to an an-nouncement from Targets corporateheadquarters.

    The store, at 16400 State Road 54,opened nearly a decade ago. But within twoyears of its opening, the economy took asteep dive.

    Now, despite a renewed boom in devel-opment and an improving economy, Targetconsiders the Odessa store and 12 others inthe nation to be poor performers.

    The decision to close a Target store isnot made lightly, said Kristy Welker, a Targetspokeswoman who responded to an emailinquiry from The Laker/Lutz News. We typi-cally decide to close a store after careful

    consideration of the long-term financial per-formance of a particular location. Typically,the decision to close a store is a result ofseeing several years of decreasing profitabil-ity.

    The 146 employees at the Odessa storewill be offered transfers to other Targetstores, Welker said.

    Golf can wait at least for now. Antiquesare so much more fun.

    So, Laura Sanderson has put her golf ca-reer on hold, and has set up shop at ShabbyShack Antiques & Vintage.

    The shops name is a twist on the BillMurray movie, Caddyshack, a classic come-dy about what else - golf.

    But, lets forget golf for the moment.Inside Shabby Shack, antiques and col-

    lectibles fill the floors, nooks and cranniesof seven rooms.

    The wares are from personal family treas-ures, garage sales and thrift stores.

    This has been a passion of my wholefamily, collecting antiques and unusualthings, said Sanderson. Im at a point in mycareer when it was good to put it on pause,and go for it, Sanderson said.

    She is the new owner of the formerFamily Treasures property. That long-timebusiness on Land O Lakes Boulevardbought and sold coins, metal detectors andcollectibles.

    The location also once operated as an an-tique shop, known as Calamity Jane.

    Shabby Shack, at 4312 Land O LakesBlvd., is stepping out with its own sense ofstyle.

    Sanderson asked her family members tothin out their antiques at home, and bringthem to Shabby Shack.

    On weekends, she also combs throughgarage sales and thrift shops on the lookoutfor the one-of-a-kind item.

    Its not straight antiques. I have moderntoo, if its unusual, she said. I like things thathave form and function.

    Her favorites are art deco and mid-centu-ry Modern.

    In her spare time, she goes creative and

    repurposes what seems to have lost its func-tion. An old camera with a flash attachment,for instance, becomes a lamp. Map pagesfrom an atlas become the foundation forwreaths.

    More than two decades ago, CharlotteEmbody watched a televised speech by abasketball coach, who had been diagnosedwith cancer and was accepting an award.

    The March 3, 1993 speech was uplifting,but Embody didnt expect it to have a per-sonal impact on her family.

    Of course, it was emotional, but it didntbecome a big thing in my life, Embody said.

    Over time, that would change.The coach making the speech was Jim

    Valvano, former head coach of NorthCarolina State and an analyst for ESPN.

    He was accepting the first Arthur AsheCourage and Humanitarian Award at the in-augural ESPY Awards, ESPNs awards show.

    And, the speech would become an icon-ic 10 minutes of inspirational television.

    Valvano succumbed to cancer the follow-ing month, but his legacy continued farbeyond his coaching accolades or the fre-quent replays of his famous speech.

    Valvano founded the V Foundation forCancer Research, which has donated more

    than $150 million in research grants overthe years.

    Now, Embody has organized a speakingand book-signing event on Nov. 18 at 7p.m., at Carrollwood Day School, 1515 W.Bearss Ave. in Tampa. The public is welcometo attend, and there is no admission charge.

    The school and the V Foundation willhost former ESPN President GeorgeBodenheimer, who will be talking about hisbook, Every Town is a Sports Town:Business Leadership at ESPN, from theMailroom to the Boardroom.

    Bodenheimer donates all of the royaltiesfrom his book to the cancer foundation.

    Embody and her husband, Derek, alsohave donated to the V Foundation over theyears, but the famous speech became a partof her familys activities as well. Her sons at-tended Carrollwood Day School, and heroldest son, Billy, was given the speech toread in fifth grade.

    He performed it for competitions at thebay area Forensics League, Embody ex-plained. Eventually, he won first place with
