www.newssun.comSunday, June 29, 2014 | NEW sS -SU nN | A5 NEWS-SSUnN Highlands Countys Hometown Newspaper Since 1927Romona Washington Publisher publisher@newssun.com Scott Dressel Editor editor@newssun.com VIEWPOINTS OUR VIEWOn paper, impact fees have an ap peal. The idea of looking ahead t o e nsure there are funds to pay for modernizing roads, additional public safety service personnel and a wider variety of parks and recre ational areas simply seems sensible. The surpr ise is that as good as these outcomes sound, impact fees have a poor history of getting the job done. In 2006, with the effervescent hous ing boom still sizzling, 1,150 build ing permits were issued in Highlands C ounty In 2009, with the economy dragging the impact fees were put on moratorium. Even so, there were only 129 requests for new permits that year and new construction has trend ed downwards ever since. In 2012 and 2013, only 58 wer e requested. Growth relies on a combination of factors, perhaps the most important being employment opportunities. In other words, new construction is the result of growth, not the cause. During periods of high growth, counties also generally raise impact fees and it seems to have no impact on growth until there is a recession. During a housing bust, dropping the impact fees does almost nothing to stimulate growth until the housing market recovers. For example, if you are buying a $150,000 house during an economic expansion and the price is $153,000, that doesnt make a whole lot of dif ference. Likewise, if there is a bust and the house y ou want to buy is $147,000 instead of $150,000, it still doesnt mean much. It is not the impact fees which vary widely that determine a sale. Much more important is the commu nity and its opportunities as a whole. The highest growth counties which generally have higher impact fees have nicer amenities and therefore attract more residents. The lower impact fee counties general ly have fewer amenities and lower gro wth. For example, Charlotte Countys impact fees are about $2,000, and Collier Countys are about $24,000, yet Collier is booming, while Char lotte is shrinking or stable. Obvious ly, impact fees are having a lack of im pact there. While w e agr ee with the Highlands County Commissions decision to continue the moratorium of impact fees, we also think new development is so slow in coming back, they dont make a difference. Keeping them sus pended is more of a feel-good mea sure than anything else. Ther e ar e two things we must do. We must be patient and allow economic forces to stabilize, and we should be thinking of other types of incentives like tax breaks instead of suspend ed impact fees to attract new busi ness to the area.Glen Nickerson President glen.nickerson@newssun.comI rst read the story on Facebook, if I remember correctly. According to the tale, a little 3-y ear -old girl was asked to leave a Jackson, Miss., Kentucky Fried Chicken because her scarred face was disturbing other customers. K elly M ullins, the little girls grandmother, is the one who rst reported the incident on a Facebook page called Victorias Victories. The child, Victoria Wilcher, had been attacked b y thr ee pit bulls on her grandfathers proper ty back in April. According to an ar ticle on www .cnn.com, she suffered bites all over her body. But her face took ser ious damage The grandmother told a CNN afliate that Victoria lost sight in her right eye, couldnt move the right side of her face and dis played facial scars. She primarily eats thr ough a feeding tube The grandmother claimed that shed ordered mashed potatoes for the girl, thinking she could handle them. After ordering that and sweet tea, an employee alleg edly asked Mullins and Victoria to leav e The story got picked up by news networks and people went nuts. Calls went out for the ring of the employee in question. KFC launched an investigation, prom ising to donate $30,000 towards V ictor ias medical bills. Other people sent money to the family, reportedly over $100,000. A Las V egas doctor offer ed to perform reconstructive surgery on the child for no charge. All makes for a touching tale, right? Had the story ended there I might have commented on the heartlessness of some people making a little girl self-conscious about her appearance. I might have urged readers to pray for the little girl and her family. I might have gone on about how we are too quick to judge by appearanc es. B ut, as P aul Harvey might say, here is the rest of the story. The Laurel Leader-Call, a newspaper in Laurel, Miss., reported earlier this week and casted doubts on the stor y claiming unnamed sources. The paper said ther e was no evidence that Victoria was asked to leave either Jackson Kentucky Fried Chicken or that she was ev en at a KFC on the day the grandmother claims they were. Tuesday, Kentucky Fried Chicken issued the ndings of not one but two inv estigations into the incident (one was conducted by an independent investigator). The conclusion: the incident never happened. I n a statement, the r estaurant chain said it would uphold its pr omise to donate $30,000 to the family even though no evidence of wrongdoing was found. The statement also ur ged people to keep Victoria in their thoughts and prayers. The family defended themselves on the Facebook page, claiming they were telling the truth. Soon after, the Facebook page was taken down. As I type this, there is no additional word from the family. As I review the story, I cant help but feel sorry for Victoria. If the incident happened, she was treated cruelly. If, as the evidence appears to suggest, her family has been lying about it for what ever reason, she is being used by people who should be lo ving and supporting her. It is a cautionary tale in this world of social media, where any one with a computer and minimal skills can post whatever they want. A t the r isk of sounding cynical, I would tend to double and tr iple check stor ies that get their start on Facebook or the like just because its on the Internet or even covered by national news media doesnt make it automatically true. (I don t know whether to feel worried or consoled by the fact the national media was taken in by this at least it wasnt just folk like you and me). In the end, whatever the truth is, there is still a hurting little girl out there who needs prayers and love. I am praying for her I hope you will too.Laura Ware is a Sebring resident.

If it came to fundraising, he was more than happ y to help but he didnt have the time for a one-on-one relationship. Vaquez, however, was persistent. He got Millsap to meet Eddy and Eddys family. The family welcomed the help. Eddys dad had little time, stretched thin earning a living, and his mother had her hands full raising Eddy and his four sis ters. Eddy needed a a mentor to help him thr ough the difcult adolescent years. Millsap and Eddy bonded from the rst time they met. The older man saying that instead of hav ing nothing in common, We never have enough time together. I like to visit Eddy and pick his br ain. I ts interesting to spend time with the next generation. We really talk about everything, Millsap said. Cars, sports, how to avoid conicts. Theres nothing we dont talk about. The pair do much more than just have conversations. Thanks to the Big Brothers Big Sisters support sys tem, they have had access to unusual opportunities. F or example they took a tour of Florida State University, including watching a basketball game fr om courtside. What impressed Eddy the most, however, was the school libr ar y. A whole building just lled with books, he said in wonder. He loves that Millsap takes him out into the world, for example, showing him par ts of F lorida that bring the book Eddy is reading A Land Remembered, by Patrick Smith to life. They are going to take guitar lessons together, partly be cause they both want to lear n, and par tly because Eddy wants to be able to play traditional songs for his gr andfather when he returns to Mexico so his grandfather will know how how much he missed him. We have a check list, like a bucket list, of things w e want to do, Millsap said with a grin. For giving of himself and making a material difference in the world b y intr oducing a young man to it, the News-Sun is pleased and grateful to name Brad Millsap our Unsung Hero for the month of J une 2014.

So far, the district has outsourced 50 per cent of the work, replacing board custodians as they retire.

The candidates were taken in r otation, so that each had an opportunity to be rst and a chance to answer last on a wide range of topics from Common Core stan dards to the issue of bullying and ev en sex education in schools. Given the high rate of pregnancies in schools, do you fa vor sex education or the message of abstinence? Elwell asked. M urphy told the group that this is an issue we need to face, saying that in the face of the number of pregnancies in schools, students needed to be given more education in their decision making. C ompton, C ulver house and Hutchison all came do wn on the side of abstinence. Id love for it to be abstinence, but its a different world, said Stephenson in favoring additional education. Another hot-button issue was a question about the distribution of Bibles and copies of the United States Con stitution on campus. While all agr eed that copies of the Constitution should be allowed to be distr ibuted on campus, there was disagreement over distribution of Bibles. I f you allow for one religion, then you have to allow all of them, said Compton. Ste phenson also disagreed with per mission to distr ibute Bibles on campus. As in a pr evious for um, all ve candidates echoed suppor t for a proposed half-cent sales tax, which will ap pear on the November ballot as a v oter r efer endum. This is an absolute must, said Hutchison, who warned that failur e to pass the tax could result in additional expenditures being funded by a hike in local pr oper ty taxes.

Foundation took place Saturday at the Highlands County Sports Complex and continued its gr o wth with nearly 150 campers ranging in age fr om gr ades 4 through 12. I wanted to do something for the Heartland, organizer and Blue Streak head coach LaVaar Scott said. For these kids to go to camps out on the coasts, it costs gas money and then an other $75 to $100 for the camp itself. I wanted a place where kids and coaches can come from DeSoto, Frostproof, Hardee and Okeechobee as well as Highlands County kids, where its not such a driv e and a low er cost. A t only $20 for the camp and the close proximity to other area programs, that mission is certainly on track and taking hold, as the number of campers hit a new high. And while the campers were put through a v ar iety of drills to improve their foot ball skills, the aim of the camp goes beyond football as well, with Scott having a no-cursing r ule and instructing the play ers in being attentive, r espectful and doing things the right way, both on the eld as well as off.Heartland Football Camp a hit Dan Hoehne/News-SunCamp organizer LaVaar Scott sits in front of the nearly 150 campers who turned out for this years Heartland Football Camp on Saturday.

The soon to be senior made a verbal commitment F r iday to continue her softball career on the college level at Garden City Community College in Kansas. It began when her travel team, the Stump Bandits out of Royal Palm Beach, played in a Diamond 9 showcase in Orlando. Coach (Becky) Gun dy saw me and another girl and talked to us Hicks said. Before then, I had never heard of that school or knew it existed. But she was great and we set up a visit. It so happened then that the Bandits took a trip to play a tourna ment in Denver, with H icks and her par ents arriving a couple days ahead of time in order to make the ve-hour drive to Garden City. I loved it there and I knew the minute I saw the whole school that I wanted to go there be cause it felt as if I was at home she said. The coaches are awesome and all the staff that I met today w er e awesome as well. And so Hicks made her decision and ver bally committed to become a Bronc Buster after her senior y ear is complete.

The Heat acquired the draft rights to Connecticut guard Shabazz Napier in a trade with the Charlotte H ornets on Thursday night, giving up the 26th and 55th picks to make the deal happen, along with a future second-round choice and cash consider ations. M y favorite play er in the draft! James tw eeted in r eference to Napier. And thats a very good sign for Miamis future. Its a perfect mo ment for my family, N apier said. N apier was taken at No. 24 by Charlotte, two slots before Miami drafted former North Carolina guard P.J. Hairston for the Hor nets. M iami took for mer Xavier guard Semaj Christon in the second round, also sending his rights to the Hor nets. W ere very fortu nate to have drafted S habazz and w e feel very excited about him and what he can bring, Heat President Pat Riley said. Hes a two-time champion, high-motor guy, char acter guy. J ames has opted out of the last two years of his Heat contract and will become a free agent next week, but hes clearly a fan of Na piers game. D ur ing Connecticuts run to the NCAA title this spr ing, J ames tweeted, No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier. Napier wasnt a lot tery pick, but wound up on a team that clearly both wanted him and wanted to make J ames happ y. Its just something special to know that one of the best play ers in the world thinks about y ou and appr eciates your talent, N apier said. Thats something that Im so humble for. Napier averaged 13.7 points in his four seasons at Connecticut, going 12-1 in NCAA tour nament games and winning two titles with the Huskies. He averaged 18 points per game as a senior, and improved his outside shot in each of his nal three college seasons. And the Heat have done fairly well with UConn guards in the past: Ray Allen has been in Miami for the last two seasons. The rst thing that jumps off is the win ning attitude, Napier said, when asked about the par allels he sees between Miami and Connecticut. That s one of the biggest things. When you compete at that high lev el, you want to win every single game. Heat trades for Napier on draft nightIts a perfect moment for my family.Shabazz Napier Amot Lii, / t, if (i, nnA++..Prp-. rIMA,rika

L IVING B Sunday, June 29, 2014 World Travel on the RiseAccording to the airline industry association A4A, air travel is expected to rise to its highest level in six years this summer, with a record number of people travelling inter nationally. However, if you count yourself among those travelers perhaps one of the estimated hundreds of thousands of Americans headed to Brazil for the World Cup are you prepared to stay connected with friends and family back home and easily share your adventures with them? Many travelers hit the road expecting to use their smartphones abroad in the same way they use them at home, re lying on them for navigation, using their favorite apps for travel tips and freely posting pictures to social media. But many are unclear about international roaming costs and coverage. For those who do travel or call overseas, its hugely ex pensive or requires all kinds of workarounds to avoid the huge fees, said Ovum analyst Jan Dawson. So this is a real pain point for some customers, at least. A recent Kelton survey conrmed a high level of exasperation that inter national travelers feel when journeying abroad. Here are some of the results: Nearly everyone surveyed (88 percent) reported being frustrated by the expenses and challenges of staying connected while abroad. Among customers of the big three carriers, nearly 20 percent leave their devices at home or never turn them on while travelling outside the U.S. Another 40 percent turn off data roaming to avoid high costs, and 20 percent say they would turn off data roaming if they knew how. Make Sure Youre PreparedSo, before you head off on your summer journey, T-Mobile wants to make sure youre armed with the best mobile tech tips for staying connected internation ally. These ideas can save you from unnecessary headaches and a ton of money along the way. Check your coverage: Before you travel, make sure you know the network specications and international data rates for your carrier in the places where youre travelling. Be sure to make adjustments if necessary to avoid costly surprises in your bill when you return. Find the best international plan: Look for carriers, such as T-Mobile for example, that provide unlimited data and texting in 120-plus countries and destinations world wide with their Simple Choice plan, freeing you from the worry of coming home to bill shock from outrageous roaming fees. Because most carriers tack 90 percent mar gins into their global roaming plans, many consumers see their costs total more than $1,000 a day when they use their phones abroad the way they normally do at home. Last Fall, T-Mobile launched international data roaming and texting at no extra charge plus slashed calls to a low at rate of 20 cents a minute in more than 120 countries and destinations worldwide. Explore the extras: Prepaid international calling cards may also be avail able through your wireless provider. Also, special day or week passes can get you access to high speed data or additional services. Dont forget insurance: In case your device gets lost, stolen or damaged along the way, be sure to secure an in surance plan to protect it. Travel blogger Summer Hull of Boarding Areas Mommy Points column notes her own personal experience with trying to stay connected while abroad. I am honestly sick of having to jump through so many hoops and keep such close tabs on usage international ly with other providers, said Hull. Im also sick of the big bills that come with having international add-ons. This TMobile approach sounds so much, well, simpler.Vacation-worthy Devices and AccessoriesHere is a list of the smartphones, tablets and accesso ries to take with you to keep up with your summer travel needs: Samsung Galaxy S5: This water-resistant phone is perfect for all your outdoor activities and includes a story album to journal your travels with pictures and notes that can be published as actual books. HTC One M8: The highlights for this device include Boomsound for listening to music outside, HTC Duo Camera for taking brilliant day or night shots and Zoe for creating mini-movies in seconds. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 Edition: A light weight and durable tablet that allows you to take your games, music, movies and social network virtually any where you go. For affordable data, the T-Mobile Tablet Freedom program allows you to get more than a gig of free data every month through 2014 and 200 MB of free data for life every month after that. Samsung LTE Mobile HotSpot PRO: This half-inchthick device expands your mobile freedom, allowing you to take the Internet with you on your qualifying service. Plus, you can share your connection with up to 10 other Internet devices. TYLT Zumo Portable Battery Pack: Did you nish up a long day of sightseeing? Dont get caught with a dead de vice. This portable pack provides up to four hours of extra battery life. With these tips in mind, summer travel can go back to being a carefree experi ence. For more information, visit www.t-mobile.com. Worry-free Wireless Travel AbroadFollowing are a few simple tips from T-Mobile to help keep your travels on track and free of com plications: Pack the essentials: This in cludes portable chargers, an in ternational power converter and MicroSD cards to give you add ed storage space for photos and more. Travel safe: Use features such as Bluetooth for hands-free driv ing while navigating the twists and turns of unfamiliar roads, or applications like T-Mobiles DriveSmart Plus, which silences incoming notimail and auto-responds to incoming text messages.

Solution on B4 DEAR ABBY: I recently took my children to spend a week with my mother-in-law, Bea. Three days after we arrived, my husband flew in to join us. The next day, Bea handed me a hotel room key and told me to take as many of the children as I wanted, but I could not take my husband because she never gets to spend time with him! I told Bea I was offended, and that I should not have been invited if it wasnt a family trip. As I was packing to leave, my mother-in-law left and spent the rest of our visit in the hotel herself while my family and I stayed at her home. My husband has now told me that I will not be allowed to visit her again, and when she visits us next, it will be just him and the kids because I make his mother uncomfortable. Must I stay away as he says, or should I pursue keeping myself included when they visit my mother-in-law? MOM OF FOUR IN MARYLAND DEAR MOM OF FOUR: Did this happen out of the blue, or have you always had a strained relationship with your husbands mother? (Im guessing its the latter.) If so, why? If the genesis of this is something you have said or done, and you cant mend fences, then perhaps it would be better if you made other plans while Bea visits. If it isnt, then face it: You married a mamas boy, and for that you have my sympathy. Were I in your shoes, rather than inflict my presence on Queen Bea, Id grab the chance to treat myself to a well-earned vacation when the lady is in town and ditto when your husband and the kids go to visit Granny. Check into a spa and let yourself have a good time! DEAR ABBY: Im a 13-year old boy who loves to play baseball and football. Because of my hard work and dedication over the years, along with the help of my coaches and my dad, Im pretty good at both sports. The issue is, my mom does not support me and repeatedly tells me Im not g ood at either one. When she says it, it cuts my heart out. My parents have been divorced since I was 2, and Dad has always done everything for me. Even though he gives me encouragement, it still stings when Mom tells me Im not good. She constantly says negative and bad things about my dad that I know are not true, but when I defend him she goes crazy with rage. What can I do to get her to stop being so negative? VERY DISCOURAGED IN TEXAS DEAR VERY DISCOURAGED: Your letter made me sad because there is nothing you can do to make your mother change her attitude. She appears to be an angry and unhappy person, who may perceive your closeness with your father as a threat to her. What you CAN do is stop placing so much importance on receiving her approval. If your coach thinks youre doing well, and these sports bring you a sense of closeness with your father, then you should enjoy them for those reasons.

While this nature has often served you well, its still a smart move to carefully consider all angles before making any big decisions. TAURUS Taurus, the goal this week is to find a happy medium where you can help others but remain true to yourself. It may take a little juggling, but you can handle it. GEMINI Gemini, although you are initially willing to go along with the groups plans, in the long run you want to set off in your own direction. A few stragglers may join you. CANCER Cancer, professional obligations may prevent you from spending time with loved ones, but only if you let them. Let higher-ups know where your priorities lie. LEO Leo, share your emotions with a friend, especially if the friendship does not seem to be going in the direction you had hoped. Keep the lines of communication open at all times. VIRGO Virgo, you may think your intentions are obvious to others, but sometimes you send mixed signals. You may have to be more concise to achieve your desired results. LIBRA Take the high road, Libra. Leading by example has always been your forte, and taking the high road now is a great example to set for those around you. SCORPIO It can be quite difficult to keep your cool when you are feeling emotional, Scorpio. Channel any nervous energy you have into a productive project this week. SAGITTARIUS Sagittarius, you are on a quest for a deep connection. You will not be content with mere friendship, but desire something that is more intimate and meaningful. CAPRICORN You are in high demand this week, Capricorn. You have the ability to get things done when others struggle with similar tasks. Keep up the good work. AQUARIUS Aquarius, you just may find yourself on shaky ground while juggling multiple responsibilities this week. Dont let the stress of this juggling act get the better of you. PISCES Pisces, you find yourself face-toface with your biggest fears this week. Draw on your inner strength and you will conquer any obstacle.

Sunday, June 29, 2014 | NEWS-SUN | B5 www.newssun.com BUSINESS AVON PARK After making a move down south in 2008, dealing with a shop that burned down in Lakeland on July 21, 2013, and a relocation transition, Delcosta Florist is open and running. Shop owner Shanon Costa has not let bar riers stop her from doing what she loves while continuing to keep her business values prioritized. Its all about the customer, customer, customer, explained Costa. Thats what I drill into my employ ees heads. Costa opened her new shop on May 15 at 2523 U.S. 27 South, Suite 100, in Avon Park. The Highlands community has been fabulous to us, we really want to be able to spread our roots here, said Costa. Delcosta Florist offers arrangements for special occasions, weddings, graduations, funerals and much more, including special gifts such as balloons and candy bouquet arrangements. Costas shop delivers locally as well as their products being available to order online and be picked up in store. Costas husband, Michael, does design and delivery, her sister, Amanda Pember, is the office manager, and her son, Chris, is in charge of internet and online sales. An arrangement does not leave the shop without me first taking it by and showing my sister, husband, and son. I like to get their approval and input before I see it as complete, said Costa. Family is a large factor in why Costa even began making floral arrangements. My family is very crafty. It is a family tradition to do ar rangements and such for family events like weddings and graduations. We all get together and work on these projects; weve been doing them ever since I can remember, Costa said. Costa took horticultural classes in high school and had hours of practice while doing crafts at her grandmothers while she was growing up. Some days the shop exceeds my expectations, but on slow days I have to remind myself of a customer I delivered to recently at a hospital, explained Costa. Just to see the womans face when I was bringing the flowers into her served as a reminder of why Im doing this; these really are heartfelt gifts. My job is to bring a customers feelings forward through an arrangement and we are economically friendly. I can work with any budget, stated Costa. Costa will be offering D.I.Y. bride classes on Saturdays starting in July, providing participants with a new style of arrangement to work on each week. She eventually hopes to start a kids art program. Expanding in the future would be ideal if possible, Costa said. Delcosta Florist is open Tuesday through Friday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., Saturday 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and closed Sunday and Monday. The florist has provided products from a range of locations from Haines City to Sebring and was the featured and preferred florist on wedding.com for 2013 and was continued for 2014. Delcosta Florist is a branch of 1-800-flowers and the wire service bloom. net.

For most of our trips, we pretty much know where were going. Longer trips include stops with fellow Christians through membership with the Wayside Travel Club. For these stops we may have to get off the beatentrack a bit to nd their homes. Instead of GPS, my husband, Ken puts in our destination with one of the mapping services on-line where directions are given along with maps. Ive also been a passenger several times where GPS was used. I found the voice inter ruptions annoying. But, worse than that, we were given wrong directions and had to nd our way out anyway. Even on-line ser vices dont guarantee accuracy. Recently we followed directions to a street address using the on-line directions only to nd that the road we were looking for was not there. We were in another state and unfamiliar with the back roads we were traveling. So, we turned around and followed our way back the way we had come, wondering all the way. Perhaps many people feel that way about life. It is a series of twists and turns, ups and downs with no particular destination shining brightly at the end. Sometimes we get it right. Sometimes we dont and we have to back track and start all over again. But there is a road map for life if we will only dust off its cover, open its pages and begin to prayerfully read it. Yes, the Bible is the book Im referring to. And in it you will nd the only perfect GPSGods Precious Son. Youll never be lost with this GPS because he came to save the lost. Youll nd wisdom and help for direction in your life because he longs for you to stay on the right path. Youll nd a safe haven during troublesome times because he is our fortress and our strength in times of trouble. Psalm 32: 8, NKJV puts it this way. I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye. The verses before speak of Gods forgiveness of sin, God being our hiding place and surrounding us with songs of deliverance. We do our due diligence with maps and directions when traveling. But, most impor tantly, we never leave home without prayers to the Lord for traveling mercies. We take our perfect GPS with us through the indwelling Holy Spirit. Well never be lost with GPSGods Precious Son. SelahAre you relying on GPS? Jan MeropPAUSE & CONSIDER LONDON Before the fast, let there be a shopping feast. From Harrods in Knightsbridge to the glittering diamond stores in Mayfair, London has long attracted big spenders. But every year around the holy month of Ramadan, which starts this weekend, a wave of spectacularly rich Middle Eastern shoppers arrives and takes retail therapy to a whole new level complete with an entourage of bodyguards, chauffeurs, and Gulfregistered Rolls-Royces and Ferraris own in just for the occasion. Retailers call the boost in business the Ramadan Rush: A hugely lucrative and fast-growing market driven by wealthy Arabs who travel to Britain to escape the desert heat and indulge in buying luxury gifts before ying home for a month of fasting and increased religious observance. Another surge takes place during the Eid holiday, which marks the end of Ramadan. The spike in shoppers during the summer months has been so regular and noticeable on Londons streets that some have jokingly dubbed the phenomenon the Harrods Hajj, after the traditional Islamic pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca. London is the place in Europe where the Middle Eastern visitor shops the most. It is almost their second home, said Gordon Clark, U.K. manager at Global Blue, the Switzerland-based retail research rm. The company estimates that pre-Ramadan sales last July jumped 60 percent compared with the previous year. Although tourists from the oil-rich United Arab Emirates, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Qatar make up only a small percentage of total visits to Britain compared with those from the U.S. and Europe, they tend to be much more lavish spenders on average. Ofcial gures show that Middle Eastern tourists ranked just 19th in terms of numbers of people last year, but came second in total spend 888 million pounds ($1.5 billion). The Kuwaitis are the biggest spenders, shelling out some 1,340 pounds ($2,275) per transaction last July, Clark said. That corresponds with data from the London Luxury Quarter, a group that represents some of the highest-end businesses in central London. It said the average spend from Middle Eastern shoppers last year came just behind the Chinese, its top customers. Unsurprisingly, the best sellers are exclusive designer handbags and shoes, watches and jewelry, though a Harrods spokeswoman said food gifts like luxury fruit baskets and extravagantly packaged dates and cocoa-dusted almonds also sell briskly. Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic lunar calendar. Muslims around the world fast from dawn to sunset for a month, starting from Saturday. The weeks surrounding the month offer retailers an opportunity they cant afford to miss, and many brands have responded to the trend by rolling out VIP ser vices just for the period. We have been working with luxury retailers who offer exclusive products during pre-Ramadan, said Myf Ryan, marketing director at west Londons Westeld shopping center. Dior has limited-edition exotic skin handbags, and Louis Vuitton and Burberry are offering private client services. The Westeld mall one of Europes largest hopes to bring in record sales with the help of extra Arabic-speaking concierges and personal chauffeurs. For the really prolic shoppers, there is a hands-free service, which involves helpers who collect the shopping bags and help pack them in the car. Other cosmopolitan cities, like Paris or Dubai, also see their share of pre-Ramadan shopping. But analysts say London has become the favorite destination. Language is one reason most of the shoppers can speak English. But thats just part of it. London has got the cultural aspects, the history, and its a wonderfully inclusive city to visit, Ryan said. The temperatures comfortable. And because the Middle Eastern customer is so important, hotels and the tourism industry are also very adept at making them comfortable. All that may leave the average British or American shopper feeling a bit left out. But the Ramadan Rush does bring one direct benet to the masses: Earlier sales. Many of Britains department stores and fashion brands have been adjusting their summer sales schedule to make sure the high rollers get to shop new stock when they arrive. Theyre not interested in sales, because the stores are too busy, Clark said. Its not a good shopping experience for them.Ramadan rush: Mega-rich shoppers descend on London By SYLVIA HUIASSOCIATED PRESS Rte( ............................................................................
