South Bay

Hospital

responds to

Medicare

change
* By MELODY JAMESON
mi@observernews.net
Prompted by new Medicare re-
quirements, South Bay Hospital is
rearranging one area of its outpatient
services.
Patients for whom Phase II of car-
dio-pulmonary therapy is being pre-
scribed no longer can enroll in and
obtain this treatment in the hospital's
free-standing physical therapy center
near the facility.
Instead, new cardiac patients sched-
uled for the after-surgery therapy are
being referred to South Bay's sister
facility, Brandon Regional Hospi-
tal. The Brandon hospital complex,
located on Oakfield Drive south of
S.R. 60, is a cardiac center as well as
a Hospital Corporation of America
(HCA) unit.
The change is effective now, but
patients currently involved in the
36-appointment, post-surgery, out-

SOUTH COUNTY It's
starting in Sun City Center but
those involved hope to include
all those with war stories to tell.
As soon as I heard about this
project, I became personally in-
volved. How could I help it? I've
been writing about this area for
nearly 30 years and I know I've
written first-hand accounts of
countless veterans of World War
I, World War II, Korea, Vietnam,
the Gulf War, and since 2001, on-
going accounts of those fighting
in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Oh- they've been sporadic, as
veterans present themselves.
In fact, my own grandson, a
23-year-old sergeant with the
Army Airborne Rangers now in
Afghanistan was featured here in
November.

r Mural dedication ceremony


a Valentine to
RUSKIN Called "Seed To
Bloom, a Mural-in-the-Round,"
the 2009 Ruskin Community Mu-
ral completely covers the Mary and
Martha House building on Shell
Point Road in Ruskin. Painted by a
team of dedicated community mem-
bers under the direction of artist Jo-
sette Urso during the Big Draw last
fall, the unusually shaped building
serves as the canvas for colorful
abstract elements and was inspired
by natural images in the surround-
ing area.
Urso, who graduated from the
University of Florida and now lives
in New York, spent three months on
the project. She led several work-


Ruskin
shops prior to the actual painting
in which participants worked with
drawing, watercolor and collage
to develop images that were later
transposed on to the exterior of the
building's facade.
"She is a distinguished artist with
an extensive and international re-
cord of exhibitions, teaching and
residencies," says Bruce Marsh,
South Shore Arts Council Board
member. "We were very fortunate
to have her."
The public is invited to the Dedi-
cation at 2 p.m., February 14. Light
refreshments will be served and
there is no admission charge. Call

KINGS POINT Amid voices of
dissent, four members of this commu-
nity's federation board have adopted
a 23-point prescription said to be pre-
pared by their attorneys for removing
two colleagues.
And doubting dissenters have estab-
lished a legal fund, looking ahead to
possible legal action.
Meeting Friday morning (January
29) in yet another special session
called since presentation in mid-Jan-
uary of two signature petitions seek-
ing removal of board president Clif-
ford Seder and board treasurer Paul
Hunt, members reviewed aloud the 23
"procedures and criteria [that] shall
be followed in carrying out any recall
meeting."
Despite the suggestion of board
member Betty Krajewski and re-
quests from the audience of about 60
assembled residents, audience mem-
bers were not permitted to have or to


obtain during the session copies of the
23 "procedures for recall of a Direc-
tor."
A copy of the recall procedures as
provided to the board, reportedly pre-
pared by Doug Christy, an attorney
associated with the board's currently-
engaged firm of Wetherington, Hamil-
ton and Harrison and obtained Friday
by The Observer,

head and is not

or any other at-

Thursday evening, January 28.
Neither Christy nor anyone asso-
ciated with the law firm answered a
telephoned request by The Observer
this week for verification that the
procedures actually are an attorney

signed the now-infamous memoran-

outcomes of "meddling" and consti-
tuting the board's response to point-

from residents.
But, Brian May, on-site community
manager for Kings Point's manage-
ment firm, the Continental Group,
announced Friday the list of proce-

of a director, the
prescribed proce-

petition cannot be
submitted more than one time; call
for verification of petition signatures
by the president or the management
company; allow for withdrawal of a
petition signature with written notice
prior to verification, and design recall
balloting similar to election voting.
Ballots marked by residents in each
recall/election district are to be re-
turned at the district recall meeting, or


by mail, or in person before the recall
meeting, to "an independent person or
company" known as the "scrutineer."
The "scrutineer" is to be appointed
by board members not being recalled.
The "scrutineer" is authorized to chair
the recall meeting, to count the ballots
and to reject or discard any ballots
considered to be tampered with or in-
valid. The management company can
serve as the "scrutineer," the proce-
dures specifically state.
In addition, management is pin-
pointed to handle details related to es-
tablishing recall meetings, including
mailing cover letters, meeting notices,
and ballot materials.
The ballot count is to be reported
to a federation board officer imme-
diately after the count and the ballots
are to be destroyed 30 days after the
recall meeting. A vacancy created by

Positive Talk
by William Hodges














Have you ever noticed that what
people choose as their surroundings
can speak volumes about who they
are and what they believe? Tim, a
manager of a company thinking
about using my services as a team
building and employee relations
consultant, invited me into his of-
fice. He then told me to make myself
comfortable while he rounded up the
rest of his staff. While he was gone I
began to look at the gallery of quotes
and cartoons he had pinned all over
the walls. There were several say-
ings set in about half-inch type that
read as follows:
"IF EVERYTHING IS COMING
YOUR WAY, YOU'RE PROBA-
BLY IN THE WRONG LANE."
"HAPPINESS IS WAKING UP
AND SEEING MY BOSS PIC-
TURED ONA MILK CARTON."
"EXPECT NOTHING AND
YOU WILL NEVER BE DISAP-
POINTED."
"LIFE IS LIKE AN ONION-
THE DEEPER YOU CUT INTO
IT, THE MORE YOU WILL HAVE
REASON TO CRY."
"THE MAN WHO CAN SMILE
WHEN THINGS GO WRONG
HAS THOUGHT OF SOMEONE


What do your su
TO BLAME IT ON."
"NO ONE KNOWS HOW BAD
HE CAN FAIL UNTIL HE MAKES
THE EFFORT TO TRY."
Those were just the ones without
artwork. One with a picture of a large
toad read, "Eat a live toad first thing
in the morning and nothing worse
can happen to you the rest of the
day." A sign showing two elephants
in a compromising position read,
"Decision-making around here is
like the mating of elephants! 1. It's
done at a high level. 2. It's accom-
plished with a great deal of roaring
and screaming. 3. It takes two years
to get anything done." There were
several others, but this final one I
will share with you summed up the
attitude conveyed by the environ-
ment in the office. It was of a little
cartoon character with a screw going
right through him. The caption read,
"No matter what I do around here,
the results will be the same."
By the time he returned to the of-
fice, I had read all of his negative
aphorisms and was feeling pretty
depressed. I had been exposed to
the mental poison for only a few
minutes; he lived with it every day.
When I mentioned he certainly had a
lot of interesting sayings on his walls,
he proudly told me people who said
that he was the kind of person who
would appreciate them had given
them to him. I eventually learned
that he was indeed a lightning rod
for negative thinking. He was a dark
cloud that hung over the company.
I've heard that if you put a frog in
a vat of cold water and raise the heat
slowly, the frog will boil to death,
never trying to jump out of the pot.
Tim's art and aphorisms were gath-
ered one piece at a time and his work
environment deteriorated, becoming

ored eyes and a head that doesn't
seem to fit his body. We think his
look is what makes him extra irre-
sistible! He was found running in
a high traffic area, panicked and
injured. Zach is a happy boy who
bounces around when you ap-
proach his kennel. If you are look-
ing for an active dog that will also
add a little humorto your life, come
and meet Zach. Zach has been
neutered. As part of his adoption
he will be microchipped, treated for
Heartworms, and brought current
on his shots. C.A.R.E. is open 10
AM to 3 PM on Tues. Sat. For di-
rections visit www.CareShelter.org

short hair. He is one cool cat!

around with his back against a
kitty bed watching the ladies go
by. Jet is up-to-date on shots

tion includes neutering and mi-
crochipping. Come and meet
Jet! C.A.R.E. is open 10 AM to

What's your daily pill
count?

Back in the bad old days a Soviet coach
of an Olympic team said, "Americans have
the most expensive urine in the world." Of
JIM McGOWEN course, he must have been referring to the
amount of vitamins that U.S. athletes were
taking. I'm sure he was certainly not talking about illegal performance
enhancing drugs since he would have no knowledge of such substances
because the Soviets would never use them. I would hate to think about
the 'Red menace' on steroids.
I've been taking a multi-vitamin every morning for years. Nothing
special, just one of those semi-horse pills that have been around for-
ever. I ran out the other day and I went to Wally-World to get a refill.
Remember, I'm talking about your garden variety vitamin tab. Imagine
my surprise when I went to the vitamin aisle and saw around 50 running
feet of pills stacked up seven or eight shelves high. That's 350 to 400
feet of vitamins.
My first thought was, "This is going to take a while." Boy, did it ever.
There is one company alone that put out 22 different kinds of multi-
vitamins that they recommend you take once a day.
So if you are over 50, a man, a woman, a teenager, have poor vision,
no energy, low on calcium, pregnant, ad infinitum, they got you covered.
However, I don't know many 50+, lethargic, pregnant guys with poor
vision so I'm guessing that one is not a big mover.
There are all sorts of pills on this aisle that is a complete alphabet of vi-
tamins. There are minerals I've never heard of and I suspect the guys that
came up with the periodic table wouldn't recognize. Oils derived from
everything that walks, flies, or swims in the sea are lined up and waiting
for you. Though I couldn't quite figure out the fish oil stuff unless you
have a squeaky fish. This also draws a picture of 'Jaws' getting squeezed
in a great big press.
Therefore, the answer to your prayers is available in a bottle. Any
wonder why we have a drug problem in this country.
I know a young lady that swears by her vitamins and supplements. She
tries to convince everybody she knows that this is a very healthy life
style. I'm not kidding when I say she takes a cupful of pills every day.
I can hardly imagine how much she spends on this daily dose, but I'm
sure it adds up. The odd part is that she is a chiropractor with extensive
medical training.
You can bet that the powers that be that have all of this stuff available
for your purchase are not concerned so much with your health as they
are with their profit.
Some time ago, I was talking to the Head of the Pharmacology Depart-
ment at Florida State University. He said, "Once you take five or more
pills of any kind, including over-the-counter drugs, there is nobody who
can tell you what the drug interaction will be."


That, to me, is food for thought. C

Many things to consider when buying a boat


Are you in the market for a new
oat? Do you know what to buy?
he market is right, because boat
ales have been down. Many have
een repossessed by the banks or
the manufacturer.
There was a time when buying
a boat was a very simple chore.
If you are buying a boat in 2010,
there are many things to consider.
The LOA (length overall). You
must consider the length and size
of boat you want.
The beam -- do you want a wide
beam? A wide beam may give you
a rougher ride, but some say they
like a wide beam for a more stable
ride.
Fuel. Will your boat have a fuel
tank or will you be compelled
to carry a portable fuel tank on
board?
Weight of your boat. Was the
outboard or inboard engine includ-
ed in the weight?
How much horsepower do you
want on your engine? A high speed
or a small engine. An inboard or
outboard engine?
Do you want a deep draft or a
shallow draft? Draft measures your
boat below the water surfaces.
For thought and consideration
I found that a small engine costs
less, but costs more to main-
tain than a larger engine, which
will save you money in the long
run. Be very careful buying your
engine because it is the most vital
choice to get you out there and
back safely.
Don't be afraid to ask questions,
and if the person isn't knowledge-
able, read up on the boat before
you buy.


Doyouwantabayboat, aflatboat,
center console boat, a walkaround,
convertibles, expresses, cuddies
or an outboard. All come in many
shapes and sizes, with many acces-
sories to choose from.
You can find boats of all prices
out there, so try to wheel and deal.
I'm sure you can win. Be a smarter
and better informed customer. Like
every industry, the boat indus-
try has gone through some tough
times, so if you are in the market
for a boat, now is the time to buy.
Cold weather and dead fish are a
thing of the past, but some charter
captains say if you are fishing to
put food on your table, don't pick
up the frozen fish. That is a no, no,
and a law. Catch a black tip shark
and you will have plenty to eat.
Our Florida weather has slowly
climbed back to seasonal norms
and fishing has been active this
week. I saw many boats on both
the bay and the rivers.
Our nice warm weather has
brought fishing for redfish a plea-
sure. Many happy anglers were at
the park and out in their boats this
week. Redfish have returned to
the canals and rivers. Looks like
many were survivors of the cold
weather.
Snook have been seen on the
prowl around the bay waters. The
season is closed and will not open
until the Florida Fish and Wildlife
have taken a count of how many
were lost in the freezing weather.
If you are found with a snook on
board, you could be arrested. If
you catch one, release it carefully
so it will survive.
Spotted seatrout and their cous-
ins, silver trout, are tolerant to cold
water and there are many out there
giving anglers a game of hide and
seek. Now you see me, and now
you don't. The anglers who know
their tricks are enjoying every
minute of the day trying to out-
smart them.
I talked to anglers coming back
at Williams Park and they said that
low tides had put the fish in pods
and it was easy picking out there.
They had caught a variety of fish


-- flounder, trout, sheepshead, and
redfish.
I asked what was hot this week
for those going out in the deep.
Anglers say gag grouper is the
hottest catch out there. They were
caught offshore at 50-60' depths.
Frozen sardines were used for
bait. White bait and greenbacks
are hard to come by; they are just
not out there.
As the weather warms, schools
of amberjacks have come back.
For those asking about kingfish, I
don't think they will start their run
until early March, but some may
stray in before then.
The best time to fish this week
has been at midday when the water
warmed up.
Cobia have been back in action
as the warmer weather appeared
this week. This is a fun fish to
catch and will give you a workout.
You can't catch snook, and as one
angler told me, this is the next best
fish to tackle.
Ladyfish are jumping and soar-
ing in the air again -- a fun fish to
catch. Sheepshead seem to like the
colder weather and have been the
ol' standby for many anglers this
week. Many sheepshead graced
dinner tables with their lean white
meat.
Flounder have surfaced to eat.
They have come from their warm
hiding place on the bottom. Larger
than usual, flounder have been
caught in the Little Manatee River.
This is a one-eyed flat fish, but a
good fish to eat. You will find this
fish on most all restaurant menus.
It has lean white meat, delicious
with crabmeat, baked, grilled, or
fried.
If you have a fly rod, with winter
low tides, now is the time to get
that rod out and aim for some great
redfish, trout or flounder catches.
When fishing the shallows, try
your push poles and turn your
motor off. Fish spook easily. Mo-
tors make too much noise. Know
the water before you try to wade
in. There are deep holes out there.
You might try an unweighted fly
which will attract your fish with-


out spooking them.
Watch the tides as the last few
hours of a falling tide trigger the
fish to eat. You will have no trouble
making a catch.
Those looking for bait say as
the weather warms, the pinfish are
starting to school. Keep an eye out
for the schools, and cast your bait
net just beyond the school. It has
been a challenge to find live bait.
If you catch and release a small
fish, watch which direction he
swims. He most likely will swim
to some larger fish or to a protec-
tive area where the larger fish are
holding.
Catches of mangrove snapper
showed up this week proving that
they survived the weather.
After the cold spell we had a lot
of sluggish fish, but as the warmer
weather appears, there are a lot of
lively fish jumping out there.
Anglers no longer need to stay
home or keep their boats in dry
dock. Go fishing and get into the
action. If you don't have a boat,
go on a charter and let the Captain
take you to your catch of the day.

Ruskin-area women celebrate
120 years
When Andrella Najera, Juanita Galan, Irma Chappa and Selma Haider-
mota were young, none planned a career in child-care work.
Haidermota was in the United States to obtain her masters degree, then
return home to India. Najera, Galan and Chappa all had worked in the
fields during their childhoods.
Yet this week, the four Ruskin-area women celebrated long careers
with Redlands Christian Migrant Association, Florida's largest non-prof-
it daycare provider. Each was honored at a recognition luncheon in Plant
City for 30 years of service at RCMA.
RCMA's executive director, Barbara Mainster, marveled at their
durability. "It's unheard of for people to stay in child care for 30 years,"
Mainster said.
Haidermota, Najera, Galan and Chappa all thanked RCMA for encour-
aging them to become educated and paying them to care for children.
"No university would have taught me so much," said Haidermota.
RCMA operates more than 75 child-care centers. In the farming areas
of Tampa Bay, RCMA has 16 centers serving more than 2,000 children,
plus a charter school in Wimauma. All RCMA centers are tucked into ru-
ral Florida farming communities, and employ staffs drawn heavily from
the migrant farmworker communities they serve.
Apart from Haidermota, all of Monday's 30-year honorees came to
RCMA directly from farm work. Galan worked in the fields along with
her 12 brothers and sisters. Chappa met her future husband picking to-
matoes at age 14.
But she left farm work for good on the day she was asked to be a sub-
stitute teacher at an RCMA center in Immokalee. "That changed my life
forever," she said.


Brandon Academy
Brandon Academy is a private
pre-kindergarten through eighth
grade school in Brandon, FL.
Terrific Kids is the Kiwanis Club
student recognition program that
promotes character development,
self-esteem, and perseverance.
Students work with their class-
room teacher and establish goals
to improve behavior, peer relation-
ships, attendance, or schoolwork.
Students then work toward achiev-
ing these goals.
Students who achieve their goals
are recognized as Terrific Kids
with presentation of certificates,
and other giveaways.


recognizes January's
At Brandon Academy, the teach-
ers and principal determine the
students that deserve such recog-
nition. Once a month, one to two
students from each grade are rec-
ognized as Terrific Kids for their
behavior, attitude, peer relation-
ships, leadership, attendance, or
schoolwork. The awards are pre-
sented at an assembly attended
by the all lower school students,
teachers, administrators, and par-
ents.
On Jan. 27, Andres Gonzalez
was awarded Brandon Academy
Fifth Grade Terrific Kid. Andres
is 10 years old and in Ms. Garri-


Terrific Kids
son's fifth grade class at Brandon
Academy.
Lower School Principal Son-
dra Cliggit made the presenta-
tion. Reading from Ms. Garri-
son's notes, Ms. Cliggit indicated
Andres was receiving the award
because "he begins each day on
a positive note, full of stories and
information about current events
and sports. He enjoys all of our
special projects in class and is
often the first to turn his in."
This is the sixth year in a row
that Andres received a Terrific
Kids award at Brandon Academy.

Having conflicts?
Wish that you knew what to do to make the atmosphere less stressful
at work or home or in the neighborhood? Is there a magic wand to wave
which will dissolve disputes, make them disappear and return sanity,
productivity and even fun into the picture? There very well may be such
an incredible device. Only this one is not magical or mysterious. It is a
process known as mediation. Not meditation, which is also a powerful
tool and has many benefits, but mediation which allows the parties in
dispute a safe way to interact and explore ways to resolve their differenc-
es. In this confidential process a neutral third party assists the parties in
conflict to express themselves in a productive manner and to determine
if a resolution to the dispute is in both parties' interests.
Would you like to learn how to mediate? Here is your opportunity to
sign up for training to explore and practice the skills necessary to assist
others in resolving conflicts. The classes are free to the first 20 partici-
pants with no obligation and are sponsored by the 13th Judicial Circuit
through the SouthShore Community Justice Center. The hope is that you
will then share what you have learned to bring a greater sense of unity
to your community.
The classes will be held on two consecutive Saturdays in February, the
13 and the 20; times for each session to be from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at
the SouthShore Regional Service Center, 401 30th Street, S. E., Ruskin,
FL 33570.
To sign up contact the SouthShore Community Justice Center at 813-
672-7442 and speak with Sharon Applegate, Administrative Aide.

Neuropathy support group
The Neuropathy Support Group will meet Feb. 12, from 1pm -2pm
at Palm Garden, 3850 Upper Creek Dr. Sun City Center. The topic is

Thomas, DC.

Local Hospitals Receiving Trauma
Patients From Haiti Airlifts
As reported in the local news, a C-130 plane landed at Tampa Inter-
national Airport last night with 28 more traumatized patients from Haiti.
This arrival put Florida Blood Services(FBS) on notice that local hospi-
tals with emergency rooms would continue to receive Haitians who were
severely injured in the recent earthquake there. FBS provides for all of
the blood needs of patients at Tampa Bay area medical facilities.
Florida Blood Services is contributing to a national effort to provide
blood and blood products to support patients in Haiti. Working in coor-
dination with AABB's Interorganizational Task Force on Domestic Di-
sasters and Acts of Terrorism, shipments of blood from Florida Blood
Services have been sent to Haiti to help those in need.
"We are ready and able to assist the blood needs of these injured
neighbors both here and in Haiti, as well as to meet the blood needs of
all patients at our local hospitals," said JB Gaskins, FBS South West Vice
President of Donor Systems, "but we can only do so through the selfless
gift of our blood donors. Blood usage in our area is always highest in
January and this disaster has created additional demand. We encourage
all eligible donors, particularly those with universal type O blood, as
well as types A and B negative to donate as soon as possible so that we
can continue to save lives," said Gaskins.
Generally, healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110
pounds can be blood donors. Identification is required prior to dona-
tion. For further information or to find donation locations please call
1-800-68-BLOOD (25663) or visit www.fbsblood.org.

Veterans stories


* Continued from page 1
I usually don't inject myself into
a news story but I'm going to here
because as a reporter, I've heard
your stories and
I know there are r-


people out there
who need to come
forward for the
project that's about


to begin.
Ten or 15 years
ago I interviewed
a man who had his
hands on the gates
of Auschwitz as
they were pushed open, liberat-
ing thousands of starving, tor-
tured prisoners. He had an album
of black and white photographs
he had taken with an old Brownie
camera. I remember wondering
how I was going to get through the
interview without crying.
As it turned out, I didn't.
I felt so honored he should be
telling me the story of how his
unit had given all their rations to
the people they liberated until they
had nothing left for themselves. Of
course, it wasn't enough. But it was
the beginning of their salvation.
I remember looking at his hands,
then aged and partially withered,
and picturing how strong and dirty
and wonderful they had looked to
those behind the barbed wire as
they pushed those gates apart.
Then there was the medic who
trudged through bodies up to his

r-


knees on Normandy Beach, his
heart bleeding inside for the men
he knew he must pass over be-
cause they were too close to death
to save. All


his time,
medicine
and atten-
tion had
to go to
those who
had some
chance at
life.
Over the
years I've


interviewed Navy men whose
ships have been bombed and sunk;
Airmen shot down in combat zones
behind enemy lines; men who (like
my first husband) crawled through
Vietnam's rice paddies underwa-
ter, breathing through a bamboo
shoot that acted like a snorkel.


Veterans,
come out,
come out,
where ever
you are. I can-
not remember
your names
and the three
veterans who
are spearhead-
ing the collec-
tion of sto-
ries in South

County for a Library of Congress
veteran's project would really love
to hear from you.
The project is called The Veter-
Sans History Project and is part of
the Library of Congress's record
of personal stories in its Folk Life
section.
Donna Borden, who heads up
some of the projects at the Li-
brary of Congress in Washington,
D.C., says that preservation of
Americana from music to crafts
to ways of life in various areas of


the country are all part of a larger
project called Folk Life. The Vet-
erans History Project is a huge part
of this, covering every war since
World War I.
People who want to learn more
about it before becoming involved
may do so on the Library's detailed
Web site, www.loc.gov/vets. Then
they can call one of the three men
involved with gathering the stories
in interview form and volunteer to
take part.
"It started because I wanted to
record my naval experience in the
latter part of the World War II Oki-
nawa invasion. So I contacted the
Library of Congress and found out
how they wanted it put together,"
said Dr. Kenneth Barringer, a local
psychologist who is also active in
Veteran's groups and affairs.
Then Kenneth called MOWW
(the Military Order of the World


Wars) be-
cause he
S knew they
were also
interested
in such
documen-
tation.
He im-
mediately
S involved
Gordon
Bassett and


Richard Wallace, both
of whom are Vietnam
veterans active in lo-
cal veterans associa-
tions and they agreed
to help.
Because the Library
of Congress has strict
guidelines for pro-
ducing a video, even
to the point of what
questions need to be
asked, the three met to
discuss their questions


and then called Donna Borden at
the Library of Congress Jan. 25.
When I spoke to Donna later in
the week, she was delighted. "I
know there are a lot of veterans in
your area," she told me. "I hope
this really brings them out so we
can preserve their stories."
So far the collection has about
80,000 tapes of veteran's stories.
"A lot of these are just shot as
home videos," Kenneth said. "But
we want to do a really good job."
So they hired a professional vid-
eographer, Bob Swing, also a Sun
City Center resident.
Bob said he would do this taping
without charge because he feels
privileged to be a part of it, Ken-
neth said.
The group plans a dry run of the
taping to practice their interview
techniques Feb. 26 with an actual
taping the following day in Room
3 of Community Hall in Sun City
Center, 1910 S. Pebble Beach
Blvd.
Anyone interested in becoming
part of this project may call Ken-
neth Barringer at (813) 633-8490;
Gordon Bassett, (813) 642-0691 or
Richard Wallace, (813) 642-0212.

Help for the
Being born with severe hear-
ing loss didn't hold Richard Her-
ring back as a child, and it doesn't
keep him from performing highly
trained executive functions now.
When he was four, the New Jer-
sey-born boy learned that others
didn't hear the
same things he
did. He doesn't
remember be-
ing shocked: it
was just the way
things were.
His parents,
however, made
the decision to
have him taught
by the best pos-
sible teachers so
he could not only

hearing impaired


function in the adult world some-
day, but become a leader in it.
For 14 years, Richard, who
moved to Sun City Center in
2001, was registered in a residen-
tial school in New York City that
specialized in teaching the hearing
impaired.
Even today,
Richard is
quick to make
the distinction
between the
hearing im-
paired (which
includes peo-
ple with hear-
ing loss per-
haps due to a
job, military
service or dis-


ease) from the deaf.
"There are many separate pro-
grams for the profoundly deaf,"
Richard explained to me in his
comfy kitchen overlooking a love-
ly plant-filled lanai and gardens
beyond that did not seem all that
affected (compared to others) by
the recent freeze. Behind us, on the
counter, he had prepared a coffee
setting; cups, sugar, and creamer.
Everything was ready for him to
turn on the coffeepot.
After all, this column is called
"Over Coffee" and some people
choose to treat me with the best
java they can find.
But after I sat down, we became
so intent in our conversation Rich-
ard never thought to turn on the pot
and I forgot about it completely.

His story is truly uncommon.
He has helped hundreds of people
with hearing loss in his career as
Director of the Division of the
Deaf & Hard of Hearing for the
Department of Human Services
for the State of New Jersey, based
in its capital city of Trenton.
He had supervisory control over
all the field workers and teachers
in the state. His whole life was
dedicated to helping others, who
like himself, did not quite fit into
programs for the deaf yet couldn't
grasp a whole conversation.
"People think they have to yell
at us," he joked, smiling at me.
"They just need to look right at us,
and speak slowly and distinctly."
We had no trouble communicat-
ing. Not once did Richard have to
ask me to repeat. Raising a grand-
daughter who's hitting her teens
and therefore being surrounded by
youngsters a lot of the time, it's
always a pleasure to have a con-
versation with someone who looks
me straight in the eye instead of
staring somewhere into space.
But this column isn't about
Richard's past; it's about what
he's doing now. When Richard
first arrived in Florida, he found
there was no branch of the Hear-
ing Loss Association of America
in the area.
So he became involved at state
level, by getting on the board of
trustees for the Hearing Loss As-
sociation of Florida. (Its Web site
is www.hla-fl.com.) Now he is


vice president of that association
and travels around the state when
it holds meetings.
"We have meetings in Tallahas-
see, Jacksonville, Sarasota, all
around the state so members from
the various areas can come," he
told me.
The Hearing Loss Association of
Florida is part of the Hearing Loss
Association of America, which
provides information, referrals,
support and referral as well as last-
ing help and friendship.
Oh, but with Richards's tenacity,
being vice president of the state-
wide organization over 13 chap-
ters wasn't nearly enough.
"I wanted to see the association
have a local chapter," he said. And
although it is called the Sun City
Center Chapter, it is open to every-
one with hearing loss of any kind
whether they live in Apollo Beach,
Gibsonton, Riverview, Ruskin,
Wimauma or any of the outlying
areas. People from Brandon and
beyond are also welcome.
"We are here to help people," he
said.
Because Richard knows sign
language fluently and understands
how important it is for people to be
able to communicate properly, he
makes sure there is always a sign
interpreter on site at meetings and
that captions are included on all
printed (or video) material.

wasn't enough. He also serves on
its board and as vice president of
it.
"Do your two vice presidencies
keep you too busy to do anything
else?" I asked.
"Of course not. I love to deep
sea fish and travel, and even play a
little golf," he told me. Some of his
favorite fishing spots are Key West
and Islamorada.
I agreed. My late husband (a for-
mer commercial fisherman) and I
"did" the Keys in the 1980s and
1990s. It is truly another world.
But for now, Richard is staying
home and concentrating on group
projects. Some that he is most in-
volved in include the TTY (text
telephone program); a relay sys-
tem (which you can find out more
about at Tampa's Florida Relay of-
fice, (813) 233-3600); and seeing
that indigent citizens get the help
they need.
The local group meets the first
Monday of each month at 9:30
a.m. at. Andrew Presbyterian
Church, 1239 W Del Webb Blvd.,
Sun City Center, which crosses
State Road 674.
The March meeting topic is
"Hospital Communication Access
for Persons with Hearing Loss,"
and in April, court accessibility
will be discussed.
To contact Richard, write to 1317
Caloosa Lake Court, Sun City
Center, FL 33573 or email him at
rhmann @tampabay.rr.com.
Those who wish to communicate
by telephone may call Marilyn

Kings Point recall

board at the board's next sched-
uled session. A recalled director is
to return all federation records and
property within 72 hours of the re-
call meeting.
All costs involved in mailings,
certification of voters and ballot-
ing, including materials and pay-
ment of personnel, are to be borne
by the federation's associations,
the procedures dictate.
While several of the 23 proce-
dural points prompted comment
or questions from listening resi-
dents, one addressing the plural-
ity required at a meeting to effect
a recall drew particular attention.
Point 17 requires 50% plus one "of
the voting interests within the af-
fected election district..."


Board member and former presi-
dent Richard Singer, noting that
May had stated earlier the proce-
dures could sc in c a dual purpose"
and be adapted for inclusion in
the federation by-laws, took issue
with the inconsistency between
the procedures' definition of a
majority and the different defini-
tion in the by-laws. He questioned
whether an end run change to the
by-laws was being proposed and
asserted the issue "needs examina-
tion." His proposed amendment to
the board's acceptance resolution
aimed at clarifying the meaning of
a "quorum" was defeated.
Ultimately, the board voted, by
a majority of one, to accept the
23-points of the recall procedure.
As recallees Seder and Hunt ab-


stained, Richard Fabiano, Ray
Glover, Richard McCormick and
Robert Sitzer combined to defeat
the votes of non-acceptance by Pat
Boussie, Krajewski and Singer.
At about the same time, residents
dissatisfied with their federation
board's conduct and alarmed by
the lengthening list of offenses
they believe are being committed
against them, were establishing
a legal fund in order to engage
counsel to assert their positions.
Dissidents now have several le-
gal objectives, said Carol Ramsey,
and have opened the Kings Point
Residents Legal Defense Fund at
the Wachovia /Wells Fargo Bank
to collect contributions.

Some refer to it as the sweet
nectar of the God's. You can use
it to season food, sweeten a dessert
or take the bite out of a cup of hot
tea. My favorite use for honey is
in my oatmeal; it is more delicate
than maple syrup and doesn't de-
tract from the flavor of my oats. I
actually go out of my way to find
different kinds of honey. On my
travels through Alaska, I managed
to send a care package home with
loads of Fireweed Honey, made lo-
cally in the Anchorage area. It was
the most delicate flavor because of
the flowers.
Here in Tampa, I have managed
to find great batches of honey at
the local Farmer's Markets that
come from Eden's Nectar. They
are able to supply delicious honey
through the West Central Florida
Beekeeper's Co-op by providing
it directly to the consumer.
There are four seasons of honey
to choose from; Spring-Summer-
Fall-Winter. Each of them has
their own golden hue and taste
completely different. The Winter
honey is a rich amber color and
is almost as thick as molasses. I
am partial to the Fall honey which


Sweet Honey
for your
Valentine
is pretty sticky, but robust in its
flavor.
I recently purchased the Spring
and Summer honey and can't
wait to try each one by downing
a spoonful. While at my local
Farmer's Market, I was given a
spoonful of honey with nothing
else to corrupt the flavor. It was
utterly divine and I was amazed at
how each honey I tasted, was truly
different. Therefore, now I sample
each honey by itself and choose the
ones that have the best flavor inde-
pendently of my oatmeal or tea.
How are there seasonal honeys
you ask? According to Edensnec-
tar.com, the beekeepers move
their hives to fields and groves to
pollinate seasonally. Because of
this, we get an assortment of fla-
vors and colors to munch on. Not
only can you buy the honey, but I
spied some actual honey comb for
sale! You can even get generous
amounts of all four honeys in a
sample pack so you can pick your
favorite.
If you visit Edensnectar.com you
can buy all of the honey goodness
online or you can find out where
to buy it locally. A list of Farmer's
Markets and stores throughout
the Tampa Bay area is available
with phone numbers and hours of
operation.
With Valentine's Day approach-
ing, a gift of some local honey may
make the holiday sweeter. Support
your local beekeepers and give
some a try!

SPIRITUAL GIFTS
"The Spirit has given each of us a
special way of serving others. Some
of us can speak with wisdom, while
others can speak with knowledge,
but these gifts come from the same
Spirit, to others the Spirit has given
great faith or the power to heal the
sick, or the power to work mighty
miracles. Some of us are prophets,
and some of us recognize when God's
spirit is present. Others can speak
different kinds of languages, and still
others can tell what these languages
mean. But it is the spirit who does all
this and decides which gifts to give to
each of us." 1 Corinthians 12:7-11

Awhile back my students were asked to write an essay about
an East Bay experience. Here is what sophomore Richard Lopez
wrote about:

A lot of thoughts come to my mind when I think of East Bay.
The first is football, not tackle football, but flag football. The
East Bay Lady Indians Flag Football team is good. Not just good,
they are great! With a freshman QB last year the Indians won
districts, with an excellent coach leading the way. Even though
the spotlight is on tackle football because of their wishbone of-
fense, the Lady Indians break necks and turn heads. I remember
when I was in the hallway and one of the JV players was bragging
about their varsity beating another school so bad the game had to
be stopped early. That is impressive! That shows how good they
are. That also shows how much these girls work when no one is
looking! I went to a flag football game last year but they were
missing something. They were missing cheerleaders. The tackle
football team has cheerleaders. I say the boys football players
should be cheerleaders to show support for East Bay Girls Flag
Football.

Unitarian Universalist meet for
coffee and conversation
Feb. 4 Rev. Dr. Robert Tucker will present "Oxygen, Fire & Light"-
Joseph Priestly, a fascinating scientist and UU Minister discovered ox-
ygen and this sermon surveys his life and the challenge. This is food
collection week. Coffee and conversation 7:00 pm, in the Social Hall
at 1115 Del Webb Blvd. East, Sun City Center. The program begins at
7:30 pm.
Feb. 11- Long time Fellowship member Bill Danek will discuss "Death
the Other Certainty." It is implausible that anything so natural, so neces-
sary, so beneficial and so universal as death should be considered so evil
to mankind. Danek shall examine this dichotomy. The program begins at
7:30 pm. Visitors are welcome. For information call 813-633-2349.

Let the excitement begin!
Trinity Baptist Church, 702 Del Webb W. in Sun Ci ty Center, has
planned an exciting evening for Thursday, Feb. 18! First they will enjoy
a covered-dish dinner as a church family. They ask that you sign up and
let them know what you'll be bringing and how many folks will come
with you. The sign-up sheet is located at the table in the foyer.
Following the covered dish dinner, they'll move into the sanctuary for
an evening filled with good clean fun by Trevor Thomas, "Mr. Drama"
at 7:00 p.m.
Trevor is not a preacher. And he's the first to say that his musical abil-
ity leaves much to be desired. Regardless, he stays extremely busy with
approximately 180 appearances a year, as well as conducting drama
workshops at churches and national and state drama festivals where he
teaches the basics of acting and directing.
From "Mark Miller" to E I1 is" to "Patrick Henry," actor Trevor Thom-
as creates characters that people can laugh at and learn from. He may
even be accompanied by his wife, Sawyer with a possible surprise or
two along the way!
This great evening of entertainment will be publicized to the commu-
nity ... so invite your neighbors and friends. Tickets are free and you can
pick them up at the Trinity Baptist Church Welcome Center. Admission
is free however, they will take up a love offering to help with Trevor's
expenses and ministry. For more information, call 813-634-4228.

invites anyone who likes to play cards or any board game to make up

WCI, the developer, and Sun
City Center residents have been
faced with having the SandPiper
golf course closed due to de-
creased membership play. Since
WCI, with the co-operation of the
Sun City Center Community As-
sociation, opened up this course
to public play in an attempt to im-
prove the revenue stream, the Ho-
gans Golf Club has been support-
ing the effort by playing the course
as often as possible.
The Hogans Golf Club was
formed to provide golfers who did
not have membership in the WCI
courses an opportunity to play all
the area public courses in a mixed
league of golfers of all skill lev-
els.

South Bay Hospital responds to changes


FEBRUARY 4, 2010


* Continued from page 1
tal's facility on Upper Creek Drive
will be able to complete their pro-
grams locally, according to Melissa
Morgan, South Bay spokesperson.
No new Phase II enrollees have
been accepted since December 31,
2009, and programs for current
Phase II enrollees are expected to
conclude by March 16, 2010, she
added.
Cardiac patients who undergo
open heart surgery, for example,
frequently are prescribed several
phases of post-surgery therapy as
part of the gradual recovery pro-
cess, Morgan said. The first phase
after surgery takes place in the hos-
pital under close medical supervi-


sion, she added.
The second phase of physical
exercise for the recovering car-
diac patient normally is conducted
under supervision by specifically-
trained personnel over a period
of weeks on an out-patient basis.
Following successful completion
of earlier programs, subsequent
phases of cardiac patient exercise
could be more patient-directed.
The change at South Bay has
been driven by a new Medicare
requirement related to mandated
staffing during Phase II programs
which became effective January 1,
Morgan indicated. The new Medi-
care rule calls for maintaining on-
site in the physical therapy facility


a medical specialist in cardio-pul-
monary conditions throughout the
course of Phase II therapy.
Such physicians and other profes-
sionals specializing in cardiac and
pulmonary conditions always have
been available within the hospital
itself, Morgan pointed out, but not
always in the free-standing physi-
cal therapy center
located approxi-
mately a block
west of the hos-
pital where Phase
II enrollees have
been participating
in their supervised
exercise programs.
Hospital manage-


ment has opted to not assign the
now-required specialist to its sepa-
rate physical therapy center.
In addition, Morgan emphasized
that cardiac surgery such as open
heart procedures are not performed
at South Bay Hospital, but well
could be performed by area cardiac
surgeons at the Brandon hospital.


If the surgery and the first phase of
post-surgery activity for the patient
are conducted in the Brandon car-
diac unit, there's a certain consis-
tency achieved by continuing the
second phase of physical exercise
also at the Brandon facility, she
said.
After mid-March, cardiac pa-
tients in a Phase III exercise pro-
gram, who have had to engage in
their physical activities on equip-
ment relocated from the therapy
center and installed within the hos-
pital building, will be able to return
to the Upper Creek Drive facility,
Morgan said. "They are," she
added, quite happy about that.

DON'T BE FOOLED BY MYTHS SURROUNDING VEIN DISEASE
Patients can easily see if they have varicose veins by just looking at their legs.
90% of varicose veins are deeper inside the legs and, in many patients with severe symptoms, all of the varicose
veins are hidden in the leg and visible only on ultrasound examination.
People seek cures for varicose vein disease merely because of vanity.
Varicose veins result in tiredness and heaviness in the legs, as well as painful, aching or burning sensations. Varicose
vein disease can cause ankle swelling and severe night cramps. This is a real disease, involving failed valves in the
veins. The resulting increased pressure in the veins below failed valves causes long term deterioration if not treated.
Serious consequences include eczema, stasis dermatitis, pigmentation changes, skin ulcerations and bleeding. Phlebitis
(clot and inflammation) in varicose veins increases the risk of very dangerous deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary emboli (PE).
The only treatment for varicose vein disease is painful and requires two weeks of inactivity.
Endovenous Laser Treatment has been proven to be very safe, effective and relatively pain free, with patients experiencing
only minimal discomfort after the procedure and quick recovery times. Endovenous Laser Treatment is an outpatient
procedure completed in our office in less than half an hour. The patient can resume normal activity the same or the following day.
There are going to be scars after undergoing the procedure.
Endovenous Laser Treatment is painless and non-surgical; no scalpel is used. This procedure is performed through an
in travenous catheter. Our patients have none of the problems that have been associated with surgical ligation, stripping
and other invasive treatments.
Closing off a major vein can cause circulatory problems later on.
Treating the cause of varicose vein disease entails closing off the faulty veins. There are many veins in the leg, and, after
treatment, the blood that is simply pooling in the failed veins will be diverted to healthy veins in order to make its way
back to the heart.
Endovenous Laser Treatment is not covered by health insurance or medicare.
Most insurance companies and medicare will cover this medically necessary treatment for vein disease.

Commissioner Beckner's com-
munity office hours are to occur
in every district in Hillsborough
County, on the last Friday of every
month, from 11 a.m. 1 p.m.
No appointment will be neces-
sary to meet with Commissioner
Beckner. Residents will be seen on
a first-come, first-served basis.
Community Office Hours for
2010 are listed below with three
changes noted:

* Friday, Feb. 26 from 11 a.m. 1
p.m., District 4 Sun City Center
Community Association, 1009
N. Pebble Beach Blvd., Sun City
Center

* Friday, July 30 from 11 a.m. 1
p.m., District 1
Ruskin Branch Library, One
Dickman Drive, S.E., Ruskin

* Friday, Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. 1
p.m., District 4
Brandon Regional Library, 619
Vonderburg Drive, Brandon


Last year, more than 500 Hills-
borough County residents met
with Commissioner Beckner dur-
ing his January 2009 Coffee with
Kevin program and monthly Com-
munity Office Hours events. The
most popular topics raised includ-
ed: Transportation (roads, rail and
speed bumps); County budget; and

City Center residents.
As a result of this citizen input,
Commissioner Beckner was able
to: lead the process for Board ap-
proval for a golf cart path to Wal-
Mart for Sun City Center residents;
save important County programs
during the challenging budget pro-
cess, such as Victims Assistance
and Consumer Protection; and
address individual resident issues
concerning code enforcement,
crime/gangs, sidewalk improve-

cell phone towers, among many,
many others.

Executive director declares emergency to help residents who are


still without water
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District Executive Director Da-
vid Moore declared an emergency
today to assist the remaining eastern
Hillsborough County residents who
are still without water and do not
qualify for mitigation by a permit
holder.
The District Governing Board au-
thorized the transfer of $250,000 in
public funds at its monthly meeting
yesterday in the event that an emer-
gency were to be declared by the ex-
ecutive director.
The region experienced an unprec-
edented freeze event this month with
11 consecutive days of below 34 de-
gree temperatures, which required
permit holders to pump large quan-
tities of water to protect strawberry,
citrus and other commodities. There
are currently eight homeowners in


the Dover/Plant City area whose
wells went dry and are still without
water, but do not live in an existing
mitigation area. The emergency or-
der will allow District staff to hire
licensed well contractors to make
appropriate well repairs or replace-
ments, if needed.
"We recognize this has been a
hardship for residents living in the
Dover and Plant City areas," said
David Moore, District executive di-
rector. "Our priority is to get these
wells working as soon as possible."
There are also more than 50 hom-
eowners who are still without water
who qualify for mitigation by re-
sponsible permit holders. The emer-
gency order will allow the District to
step in and have these wells repaired
or replaced if the responsible party
is unable to meet their 15-day dead-


line. In the event this would occur,
the District will seek reimbursement
for these funds from the responsible
permit holder.
The District will hold a series of
public workshops, the first of which
will be on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at the
Hillsborough Community College
Trinkle Center in Plant City from 6-9
p.m. The goal of these workshops is
to receive feedback from all involved
on what modifications are needed to
current strategies to manage frost/
freeze events in the Dover/Plant City
area in the future.
For more information on the frost/
freeze event or the upcoming work-
shop, visit the District's web site at

tion Department at (813) 985-7481

Hybrid electric trucks join Hillsborough County's Green Fleet


Hillsborough County continues
its commitment to green practices
with its recent vehicle purchases.
The two diesel hybrid electric
trucks, equipped with an aerial plat-
form, will be used to repair traffic
signals and other traffic control de-
vices maintained by the County.
The electric hybrid system allows
the man-lift to operate without
running the diesel engine. In addi-
tion, the electric motor provides a
reduction in noise, making it ideal
for early morning or late evening
operations.
These trucks are estimated to use
up to 60 percent less fuel for utility
type applications and 30 40 per-
cent less fuel while driving. They
also will require up to 87 percent
less idle time and their regenerative
braking feature captures energy
to charge the battery that would
normally be converted to heat and
waste. In summary, more than
$5,000 annually will be saved per
vehicle.
One of these vehicles was on dis-
play at the E3: Energy, Environ-
ment and Economics Regional Fo-
nun at the St. Pete Times Forum in
downtown Tampa on Jan. 29.
While these are Hillsborough
County's first heavy duty hybrid-
electric vehicles, they are not the
first alternative fuel vehicles in the
fleet. Hillsborough County Fleet
Management Department's 18 ex-
isting alternative hybrid vehicles
include one Honda NGV, 10 Toy-
ota Prius hybrids, and seven Ford
Escape hybrid SUVs. In addition,
Hillsborough County has a large
number of flex fuel vehicles that
are capable of operating on either
gasoline or E85 Ethanol.


HYBRID TRUCK
Hillsborough County Fleet Man-
agement continues to implement
green initiatives that have already
earned them national recogni-
tions over the past two years. The
County's fleet has been reduced by
more than 380 vehicles and pieces
of equipment, and this fiscal year,
fuel usage is expected to reach its
lowest since 2002. A reduction of
264,000-gallons in fuel was real-
ized in FY09 with a recently imple-
mented utilization and fuel conser-
vation program.
The installation of on-board oil
filtration technology systems elimi-
nates the need for oil changes on
certain pieces of heavy duty ve-
hicles and equipment used in Fire
Rescue, Solid Waste Management
and the Sunshine Line. Among its
many benefits, this system, allows
for a longer engine life, improved
fuel economy, reduced consump-
tion of petroleum based products,
reduced downtime, and a 90 percent
reduction in waste oil generation,
handling and storage. Fully imple-
mented, this project is projected
to save up to $1.5 million over the
useful life of the participating ve-
hicles, which does not include the


cost and ongoing liability associ-
ated with handling up to 1 million
quarts of waste engine oil over the
lifecycle of these vehicles. In addi-
tion, preventive maintenance ser-
vice intervals have been extended
on light and medium duty vehicles
to maximize oil usage and mini-
mize waste oil generation, resulting
in $235,000 in annual savings.
Hillsborough County Fleet Man-
agement maintains more than 3,800
vehicles and pieces of equipment
used by more than 25 departments.
It has been named the No. 1 pub-
lic sector fleet department in North
America by Government Fleet
Magazine for the past two years,
and has earned the Environmental
Protection Commission's Green
Star Certification for implement-
ing best management practices and
pollution prevention strategies.

Connecting high speed rail to Tampa Bay region
High Speed Rail between Tampa Bay and Orlando is a step closer to
reality with President Obama's announcement last Thursday committing
federal funds to the project. The Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation
Authority (TBARTA) applauds this funding and is already taking the next
steps to connect all of our communities.
As work begins on the High Speed Rail connection between Tampa Bay
and Orlando, TBARTA will work to connect High Speed Rail to the Tam-
pa Bay region through a Regional Transportation Network. This network
is all laid out in TBARTA's transportation master plan, which was created
and approved in 2009.
"TBARTA is beginning work this year to create a modem, multimodal
transportation system that will connect the seven counties of the Tampa
Bay region," said Ronnie Duncan, Chairman of TBARTA. "Our regional
transportation network will serve as a supporting system to Florida High
Speed Rail passengers who travel to the Tampa Bay region for business or
for recreation."
The TBARTA master plan includes highways and buses, as well as short
and long-distance rail that will connect Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough,
Manatee, Pasco, Pinellas, and Sarasota counties. These short and long-
distance rail projects will tie in closely to the High Speed Rail initiative
between Tampa and Orlando. This master plan will be implemented with
the help of TBARTA's various partners, including HART (Hillsborough
Area Regional Transit Authority) and PSTA (Pinellas Suncoast Transit Au-
thority) among others.
The TBARTABoard of Directors voted in December 2009 to begin work
on the first projects of the TBARTA Regional Transportation System. The
nine approved projects will cost an estimated 10 million dollars, funded
through the Florida Department of Transportation and other partnerships.
These projects include Alternatives Analyses, Conceptual Analyses and
Feasibility Studies for several corridors, with active projects in all seven
counties of the TBARTA region by 2011.
"Having a strong Tampa Bay regional transportation network will only
bolster Florida's high speed rail service. If travelers knew that once they
arrive in Tampa they have a connected, coordinated transportation sys-
tem that can carry them to destinations within and beyond Hillsborough
County, then they would place more value on the high speed connection,"
said Bob Clifford, Executive Director for TBARTA.
Just as the President anticipates investments in national High Speed Rail
will create jobs and improve local economies, TBARTA believes that in-
vestments in the Tampa Bay Regional Network will create an annual aver-
age of nearly 21,000 quality, local full-time jobs over the next 40 years.

Fantasy of Flight
For years visitors to Fantasy of
Flight, Central Florida's premier
aviation attraction, believed that
the only specters of the past they'd
encounter would be the collec-
tion of 40 fully restored vintage
aircraft; displays of a long-gone
era of aviation. But as stories of
unexplained occurrences such as
unidentifiable noises, tempera-
ture changes and the detection of
mists and shadows drifted into the
paranormal community, Florida's
Apollo Paranormal Investigations
(API), a non-profit investigative
team out of Apollo, Fla., took no-
tice.
API's team of paranormal in-
vestigators (or "ghost hunters" to
which they are more dramatically
referred in popular media) con-
ducted a series of scientific explo-
rations through Fantasy of Flight
and on a paranormal-activity scale
between 1 and 10 assigned the vin-
tage aircraft collection... an 11!
Based on their conclusions, in Jan-
uary 2010 Fantasy of Flight will
premiere nightFlight, an exciting
after-hours program that offers ad-
venturous visitors four full hours
to "Explore the Unexplained."
Talk of energies that linger in and
around the restored aircraft doesn't
surprise Kermit Weeks, owner and
creator of Fantasy of Flight.
"We've had a number of very
interesting paranormal occurrenc-
es at Fantasy of Flight since we
opened in 1995. It never occurred
to us to explore them until we were
approached from two completely
different and independent para-
normal groups wanting to investi-
gate our facilities," said Weeks. "I
personally believe the apparitions
and energies that have been expe-
rienced are not only connected to


a favorite haunt for spirits?
specific airplanes, exhibited but
the environment they are housed
in as well. There have been move-


ments of objects, voices heard,
apparitions showing up in photos
and actual sightings! Fantasy of
Flight is all about going beyond
ourselves and we encourage not
only our guests, but our paranor-
mal friends as well!"
Unusual in its objectives, night-
Flight is also unique in its ap-
proach to paranormal investiga-
tions. Beginning at 9:30 p.m., a
limited number of guests will be
admitted to Fantasy of Flight as
they join API's paranormal explo-
ration guides for a four-hour after-
dark experience to search between
this world and the next for signs
of supernatural activity. Guided
by a skilled team of investigators,
guests will be trained in the opera-
tion of tools and devices these pro-
fessionals use to determine the dif-
ference between coincidences and
inexplicable phenomenon.
According to Kim Long, Gen-
eral Manager, Fantasy of Flight,
the entire experience is designed
to satisfy skeptics and believers
alike.
"Whether you're inclined to be-
lieve in the spirit world or scoff at
it, our goal is to first share with
everyone what some feel is the
haunted history of the Fantasy of
Flight collection. It is designed as a
hands-on adventure as participants
become familiar with the tools
and techniques professionals use
to conduct paranormal investiga-
tions. They become part of a team
that actually searches for evidence
of supernatural activity -- and will
have a unique experience to talk
about for many years to come!"
During an orientation session,


guests will be given refreshments
and an opportunity to share with
others their own encounters with
the paranormal. Next, all explorers
enter a torch-lit labyrinth designed
to clear their minds and open their
hearts before arriving at the Fan-
tasy of Flight hangar. Here, the
trained API paranormal investiga-
tors share evidence of apparitions
and mysterious sightings captured
on audio, video, and film. Next,
accompanied by no more than ten
participants each, the guides will
instruct their teams in the use of
equipment and investigative meth-
ods of capturing data before set-
ting off on their exploration.
After midnight, the groups will
reconnect for a debriefing and to
share with others the results of
their investigations from personal
encounters to questionable sensa-
tions to concrete audio or visual
evidence.
"By 1:30 a.m., we hope that our
curious explorers will have expe-
rienced what so many of our em-
ployees, guests and paranormal
researchers have witnessed in the
past," says Long. "They'll have
learned about the history of our
vintage planes, they'll know what
it's like to be part of a paranormal
investigation and perhaps they'll
have made contact with these un-
explained energies who like all
of our visitors -- have an affinity

LETTER TO THE EDITOR


I agree
Dear Editor,
I was out of town at the time
when your paper showed on the
front page "CIRCUS FUN." But I
agree 100 % with this lady!
Afew weeks ago I read an article
about the elephant training for cir-
cuses and I got tears in my eyes
about the cruelty they use to force
the elephants to do these "funny"
things. They start with the baby-
elephants by stretching their legs
with ropes up to four strong men
have to pull a very painful action
and they force them to balance on
barrels, even if they fall and break
their legs. A broken leg becomes
for the elephant deadly, because
it does not heal so they kill him
and start the training all over with


a In'\\"one.
I cannot understand how ANY-
BODY would have fun seeing
animals suffering and being in
pain just for the fun of humans
- and it is wrong, to bring the kids
to this event! Parents should teach
the kids to help animals and to pro-
tect them and not show them how
funny it would be to see an ani-
mal in pain. I am not completely
against circuses it can be fun to
see clowns and acrobats.
I hope you will think about this
matter and no longer support cir-
cuses who show any suffering ani-
mals just for fun.
