nation and around the world, will
the summer of 2010 stand out in
the meteorological record books?
With six weeks remaining of sum-
mer, the story has yet to be written.
But if you think this summer seems
hotter than normal, you may be
right. But then again, summer in
Florida is normally just plain hot.
In Tampa's recorded history the
temperature has never reached
1000F. The all-time high tempera-
ture for the city, 990F, was set on
June 5, 1985. This year, on June
12, that record was challenged but
not quite reached as the tempera-


ture rose to 98 degrees. This year's
temperature set a new record for
the day, however, beating the old
record set in 1977.
Thus far this summer, nine new
record high temperatures have
been set or tied in Tampa and St.
Petersburg. The most recent on
August 2, with a record high of
950F tying a 1970 record.
In addition, there have been three
record high-lows, temperatures in
which the overnight low was re-
defined upward. All of the record
high-lows were set in May.

Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson today announced
that nominations are being accepted
for the 2010 "Woman of the Year in
Agriculture" award. The award, now
in its 26th year, recognizes women
who have made outstanding contri-
butions to Florida agriculture.
"This award spotlights the vital role
of women in Florida agriculture and
serves to encourage other women to
get involved in the business," Bron-
son said. "Many women have made
significant contributions over the
years in developing and sustaining
this important industry, which has an
overall economic impact estimated
at more than $100 billion annually."
Those nominated for the award will
be judged by a panel familiar with
Florida agriculture. The award will
be presented on February 10, 2011,
during the opening-day luncheon of
the Florida State Fair in Tampa.
The Florida Department of Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services,
which sponsors the event, has sent
nomination forms to agricultural
organizations around the state. The
deadline for submitting nominations
to the Department is November 1,
2010.

Developing your portable wealth EBHS students selected for Boys State


In many countries around the
world, it has always been impor-
tant for the
residents to
have por-
table wealth.
For the most
part, portable
i wealth mani-
.fests itself in
Positive the form of
IN .


Talk


jewelry or


By William Hodges maybe even
small gold
bars, both of which are easily used
as a medium of trade. The need for
this type of portable wealth is most
important where there is little po-
litical stability and a possibility of
needing to flee at a moment's no-
tice. During these periods of con-
flict, printed money can lose all
or most of its value overnight, so
having this portable wealth is not a
luxury but rather a necessity.
In the United States, portable
wealth is also important. No, the
money system of the United States
is not immediately threatened. I
am not suggesting that you run out
and buy gold chains to wear or that
you hide gold bars under your bed.
In this country, portable wealth
takes on a different meaning. Por-
table wealth here is the knowledge
that you carry in your head. Your
safety and security will be depen-
dent upon what you know and
how well you are able to use that
knowledge to ply your trade. Here
are some ways that you can build
your knowledge base and increase
your store of portable wealth.
1. Start looking at life as
one large classroom. Learn from
every experience. No matter what
happens to you, there is a lesson to
be learned from it.
2. Take full advantage of the
educational opportunities provided
by our public school system. We
have one of the finest educational
systems in the world, but many re-
fuse to fully participate in it.
3. Company training pro-
grams are another method for in-
creasing your knowledge base.
Unfortunately, many people attend
training sessions with an attitude
that says, "The boss can make
me attend but he can't make me
learn." Do not lose sight of the fact


that if you are in the class and do
not take part in the learning pro-
cess, you have wasted your time
and squandered an opportunity to
accumulate some portable wealth.
4. Reading and exploring
the internet is a wonderful way to
expand your knowledge base and
increase your value in the work-
place. I have been told that reading
just 15 minutes a day for a year on
any given subject makes a person
an expert on that subject. Well, I
am not sure they would qualify as
experts, but they certainly would
qualify as being very knowledge-
able. By the way, if you don't like
to read, there is a vast body of au-
dio materials that you can listen
to and from which you can learn
much.
5. Finally, just as we should
not let age stop us from accruing
financial wealth, we should not let
age stop us from accruing mental
wealth. Many colleges and univer-
sities have either no- or low-fee
opportunities for seniors to take
classes, and senior centers con-
tinually offer classes. In Sun City
Center, Florida, the 55+ commu-
nity where I live, the United Com-
munity Church sponsors a Com-
munity Church College. Last year
more than 1,400 seniors attended
at least one of the more than 80
classes in such subjects as theater,
folk guitar, Spanish and national
security.
No matter how many gold
chains you wear, you cannot carry
enough portable wealth around
your neck to last you for a lifetime.
But knowledge is another matter.
If you learn the hows and whys of
life, you will always be of value
to any society you choose because
you will be a contributing member
of that society.


Michael Phillips and Floyd Si-
mon, students at East Bay High

East Bay defeats State Champs


East Bay placed second in the
2nd Annual Plant City Invitational
Girls Flag Football tournament.
The tournament is a two day event
with the first day comprising of
round-robin play and the second
day teams enter a single elimina-
tion bracket. During round-robin
play East Bay went 1-3, it s only
win against Plant City. The three
losses were to Alonso, the 2010
State Runner-Up, and losses to
two different Seminole Ridge
teams, the 2010 State Champions.
During bracket play, East Bay's
first win came on a Plant City for-
feit. Alonso defeated East Bay in
the championship game. The big
game, however, was the semi-final
game. Seminole Ridge defeated
East Bay 27-0 the day prior. Per-
haps overlooking this game in an-
ticipation of a rematch with Alon-

play in regulation, Seminole Ridge
intercepted the ball and ran 4 yards
for the score. However, the team
missed its conversion. On the very
next play, East Bay delivered a 66

drove the length of the field only
to have a 4th down pass intercept-

Tampa Sailing Squadron to host boating safety course Back to school: prepare your teen


The U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary will be offering the
12-session 'Boating Skills and
Seamanship'course at Tampa Sail-
ing Squadron beginning Aug. 26
and running through Dec. 2. The
course includes basic boating ele-
ments necessary for recreational
boaters to boat confidently and
safely. The sessions include boat
handling techniques, rules-of-the-
road, navigation, weather, simple
knots and line tying, docking and
anchoring, trailering and much
more.
Tampa Sailing Squadron and the
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary share
a common commitment to safe
boating. Located on Apollo Beach
Blvd. in Apollo Beach, the Tampa
Sailing Squadron provides a large
and comfortable classroom setting
for the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary
instructors and the recreational
boaters in attendance.
A recent report by the U.S. Coast
Guard's Office of Auxiliary and
Boating Safety declares that boat
operator inexperience is one of the
main factors in boating accidents.


Participants learn much needed information about boating safety.


In addition, and perhaps most sig-
nificantly, the report also states that
'a full 86 percent of boat operators
involved in fatal accidents had not
received boat safety instruction.'
This class provides the first step
for recreational boaters to not be
part of that statistic.
'Boating Skills and Seaman-
ship' is presented from 7 to 9
p.m. on Thursday evenings. The
cost is $50 for all 12 sessions and

for the road
(NewsUSA) As the summer
comes to an end, teens prepare to
get back to the classroom -- and the
road. If your young driver is ready
to buy their first used vehicle,
you'll need to do your research.
Firestone Complete Auto Care
offers some tips that will not only
help you in the process of buying
a good used vehicle, but will also
help keep that vehicle running
newer, longer:
When shopping for a used car:
Make the investment. Many
problems with vehicles aren't
obvious. Have your teen take the
vehicle to a trusted automotive
technician for a thorough inspec-
tion. A small investment upfront
could mean big savings down the
road if it prevents you from buying
a vehicle with serious mechanical
problems.
Check the Internet. Your teen
can use a vehicle's Vehicle Iden-
tification Number (VIN) to search
for its history online. It's a good
way to check for odometer fraud
and to find out if the car has ever
been damaged in an accident.
Trust your senses. Check for
evidence of flood damage, which
might include a musty smell, water
stains, dried mud, mildew or mold
inside the car. Check for stains on
the carpet under the dashboard,
which can indicate heater core or
air conditioner leakage.
After purchasing your used
vehicle:
Change the engine oil. Early on,
your teen should get in the habit of


changing the oil according to the
vehicle owner's manual, usually
every three months or 3,000 miles.
Prolonged driving without an oil
change may cause severe engine
damage, which can be very costly
to repair.
Maintain your tires. Teach
your teen to check the tire infla-
tion pressure every month. Tires
should be properly balanced and
rotated according to the mainte-
nance schedule. The alignment
should be checked at least once
a year. Properly maintained tires


An inspection can help you
avoid purchasing a car with
mechanical problems.

are safer and longer lasting, and
can increase gas mileage up to 3
percent.
Check the vehicle's fluid levels.
Have your automotive technician
show you and your teen how to
check the transmission, power
steering, windshield washer and
coolant to make sure they're
properly filled.
Also have your automotive
technician check your vehicle's
brake fluid level and condition
regularly.

Among the numerous efforts by Hillsborough County's Hazard Miti-
gation section to maintain its good rating that translates to 25% low-
er flood insurance premiums for residents in coastal high hazard
areas is the storm surge warning sign program. Here Gene Henry
(right) hazard mitigation manager, and Linda Mandell,(left) member
of the mitigation team, demonstrate the potential force of a hurri-
cane-driven surge of water from Tampa Bay. The storm surge at this
site on 19th Avenue at U.S. 41 north of Ruskin could be 23 feet.


Flood plain


* Continued from page
jor storm surges or flooding events
to inundate Hillsborough County
for about 60 years, the county be-
gan flood plain management in
the early 1980s, Henry said. The
area around Tampa Bay has seen
the kind of damage wrought by se-
vere flooding only three times in
the last two centuries, but the last
such event in 1920 put a multi-ton
freighter in the middle of down-
town Tampa, he added.
Ultimately, the county applied
for inclusion in the federal flood
insurance program administered
by the Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) and was
ranked in a "fundamental" cat-
egory.
Hillsborough also was rated a 9
on a scale of 1 to 10, with one be-
ing the best, by an international rat-
ing agency known as the Insurance
Services Office (ISO) with which
FEMA partnered, Henry added.
The rating was related to the com-
prehensive quality of the county's
flood management planning.
In 1990, FEMA instituted a next
level and Hillsborough, by virtue
of its expanding, improving flood
management planning, was able to
meet a new community standards
rating. Hillsborough currently is
a "5," Henry noted, and flood in-
surance premiums have declined
commensurately for owners in the
hazardous areas who have mort-
gages and therefore are expected
to protect both their lenders' and
their own interests,
The county attained and retains
its "5" rating by maintaining a
number of benchmarks including a
stringent land development code,
implementation of storm water
systems, monitoring the convey-
ance system of smaller streams,
keeping up an environmental lands
acquisition program, establish-
ing low density zoning districts,
keeping current flood data files
and consistently operating a multi-
faceted public outreach. All of


these factors, involving a number
of county departments, contribute
to the improved rating given the
county by FEMA and ISO and, in
turn, to keeping down flood insur-
ance premiums, Henry said.
The county now also is looking
toward a "4" FEMA/ISO rating in
the next year to 18 months which,
again, is expected to reduce flood
insurance premiums by another
five percent. It is anticipated the
new, better rating can be attained
by requiring another six inches
elevation above sea level for new
construction and substantial struc-
tural improvements, Henry added.
Meanwhile, hazard mitigation
specialists are looking ahead to
the September 2 meeting when the
shower of information that is the
draft plan can be reviewed by the
public, particularly by those with
a vested interest in its comprehen-
siveness. Public comment on the
goals and activities outlined in the
plan will be welcome, the mitiga-
tion manager said.
The completed, periodic updat-
ing of the flood management plan
is to be wrapped up by October 1,
he added. If that deadline is not
met, the total $5.5 million discount
could be lost for at least a year.

5 county-wide chair, Linda Saul-
Sena, former Tampa councilwoman
also campaigning for the district
5 slot as a Democrat, and Mark
Sharpe, a Republican currently
serving as district 7 at-large com-
missioner. Only Sharpe will be on
the primary ballot.
School board contenders pres-
ent were Jennifer Faliero, Kirk
Faryniasz and Stacy White, all aim-
ing to nail down the board's district
4 seat which Faliero currently oc-
nmnicsQ


In addition, George Niemann, Do-
ver resident and veteran local gov-
ernment watchdog, joined the panel
to field questions related to Amend-
ment Four, the proposal that would
give voters the last word on major
changes to the county land use code
and which will appear on the No-
vember general election ballot.
Two other declared commission
candidates, incumbent Ken Hagan
now seeking to slide over to the
district five at-large seat and Josh
Burgin, a political newcomer try-
ing to unseat Sharpe, as well as an
Amendment Four opponent all were
invited to the forum but the three
neither responded nor appeared,
Marcella O'Steen, association pres-
ident, said. Under forum ground
rules, O'Steen allotted candidates
three minutes initially for opening
statements of qualifications and
one minute for individual replies to
questions during the following open
Q and A, with 30-second warnings


signaled by Kermit O'Steen, hold-
ing the time clock.
It was strict adherence to this pro-
cedure that produced the humorous
highlight of the evening. Sharpe,
known for his emphatic belief in
and support of the suggested one-
penny sales tax increase earmarked
for roadway improvements and a
light rail system across municipal
Tampa, was asked to explain his po-
sition. The commissioner, who has
debated the sales tax increase issues
with opponents for months, stood,
microphone in hand, to stress his
views about addressing "$60 mil-
lion worth of failed
roadways" and a
"bus system that
works" around the
county along with
the future advan-
tages of light rail
transportation in
the city.
Trying to cover all
his bases, Sharpe,
a former teacher,
exceeded his one-
minute limit. After
a warning and as
the commissioner
still continued,
O'Steen reached
for the mike, pry-
ing it from Sharpe's
hands. Grinning and pointing to her
playfully, he wisecracked about
"payback," referring to time limits
imposed by county commission-
ers on citizens during meetings.
O' Steen smilingly stood her ground.
The crowd promptly erupted in loud
laughter, vigorously applauding the
unfolding byplay.
On the same subject, Hosler,
veteran professional planner and
demographics analyst as well as
strong opponent of bumping up the
sales tax, called the entire proposal
a -mi.:.,L and mirrors" proposi-
tion. One reason, he added, is that
sketchy information given the pub-
lic suggests the penny hike will
generate a total of $320 million per
year. Yet, "the highest amount ever
collected has been $200 million,"
he noted.
Hosler later also asserted that,
from the planning perspective,


Tampa was plattedd as a city made
for cars," adding "I don't think rail
will ever work here."
Similarly, Cosentino, retired
USAF officer with a strong interest
in local aviation programs, stated
"Light rail will start hemorrhaging
from day one" with new taxes re-
quired to keep it "on life support."
Saul-Sena, long-time Tampa city
councilwoman, on the other hand,
pointed to long term jobs that would
be created in order to build the rail
system stretching from the Univer-
sity of South Florida district south
through the urban core and west to
the WestShore
section, plus the
permanent posi-
tions to be filled
for operation of
the system.
Another fi-
nancial issue,
the "golden
parachute" of
unearned salary
guaranteed for-
mer county ad-
ministrator Pat
Bean in her em-
ployment con-
tract, also raised
resident ire as
anthey pressed
candidates for
explanation of Io:\ did she get
such a contract?"
While not specifically answering
the question, the commission can-
didates generally agreed. Sharpe
called the contract an "abomina-
tion," adding he led the fight to
remove Bean based in part on the
"arrogance" of herself quietly tak-
ing and giving select others salary
increases as staff was undergoing
wholesale reductions to meet bud-
get shortfalls. Hosler attributed
Bean's long tenure to protections
provided by Hagan, his opponent,
adding that if elected he would
"clean out the weeds." Cosentino
suggested the now-discharged ad-
ministrator under investigation for
possible violations of law should
have been released long ago and
asked rhetorically hi:o many other
such contracts are out there?"
Differences in candidate outlooks


also showed up during the forum.
They were asked why Balm, bur-
dened with several borrow pits and
life-threatening speeding dump
trucks, gets so little traffic control
attention from Hillsborough's Sher-
iff although a number of deputies
live in and around the community,
traveling regularly through it in de-
partment vehicles. Hosler suggest-
ed that law enforcement officers,
like military personnel, technically
are on duty 24 hours per day, sev-
en days per week. This prompted
Sharpe to caution that such a po-
sition could motivate the sheriff's
office to seek pay raises. Hosler
retorted with a comment about the
commission controlling the sher-
iff's budget, without explaining the
county sheriff is a constitutional of-
ficer, elected at large, who does not
report to the county commission but
rather to the electorate.
Similar monetary questions were
put to the school board candidates.
Asked why the school system can-
not find funding for classroom
materials, leaving the burden to be
carried by teachers and volunteer
groups, Faliero replied the blame


actually belongs to state legisla-
tors. The legislature has completely
eliminated monies for classroom
supplies, she said, "100 percent.
That's why we depend on others."
Faliero pointed in the same direc-
tion when the possibility of cutting
school board member salaries was
raised. The veteran board member

Public meeting to discuss sewage
pipeline construction along S.R. 674


The Hillsborough County Public
Utilities Department has scheduled
a public meeting on Aug. 31 to dis-
cuss the design of a new sewage
pipeline in the area of Interstate 75
and State Road 674.
The $6 million project will in-
stall approximately 8,000 feet of
30-inch sewage force main from
Cortaro Drive and S.R. 674, to the
South County Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant on the western side of
1-75. The route skirts the southern
and western edges of the Villages
of Cypress Creek community.
Construction is expected to begin
in late 2011 and last nine months.
The work is the second phase
of a two-part project by the de-
partment's Water Resource Divi-
sion (formerly known as Water
Resource Services) to build a
new sewage pipeline from U.S.
Highway 301 to the South County
Wastewater Treatment Plant. The
first phase, along S.R. 674 from
U.S. 301 to Cortaro Drive, is under
construction and is expected to be
completed early next year.
Recycling My Clothe
I watch clothing items as I am
doing the wash. When I see some-
thing that needs mending, I place
it in a pile in my bedroom. I may
include a sock that has a hole start-
ing, a t-shirt that has a hole under
the arm, etc. When I have time, I
get my sewing kit out and go to
work. I may only have time to sew
one or two item at that moment, but
I seem to keep the pile to a mini-
mum. The kids are always happy
when they see their item has arrived
back in their closet and is ready to
wear again. Also, my "sewing kit"
is all of my sewing items in a cheap


The new line is being built to
accommodate growth in the south
county area and to increase over-
all system reliability by providing
a second transmission main along
the S.R. 674 corridor. The project
is being funded through the Water
Resource Division's Capital Im-
provement Program.
Water Resource Division staff
and design firm representatives
will be at the meeting to talk about
the construction of this second
portion of the pipeline and answer
questions.
On Tuesday, Aug. 31 at 6:30 p.m.
the SouthShore Regional Library
located at 15816 Beth Shields Way
will host the public meeting.
All meeting facilities are ac-
cessible in accordance with the
Americans With Disabilities Act.
Any additional necessary accom-
modations will be provided with a
48-hour notice.

A little repair saves
We do a lot of shopping on
Craig's List for things we want that
we don't want to pay full price.
While purchasing an item from a
family that was moving, we asked
if they wanted to sell their lawn
swing, the kind that seats two and
has a canopy. It was rusty looking,
faded, and had green algae on the
cushions. New, it had to be $250.
The guy said that he would take $5
for it!
We brought it home and I got
to work. First, using a power drill
with a metal brush attachment, I
ground off all the rusty spots. You
can use a wire brush if you prefer.
I bought a small can of store brand
oil based rust preventer paint and


$200
painted all the metal on the swing.
I bought new cushions for it at a
discount store and washed the
canopy. It looks great and all to-
gether it cost me $24 for the cush-
ions, $8 for the can of paint, $5
for the swing itself, and my time.
By re-using something that would
have otherwise gone to a landfill, I
am saving money and helping the
planet.

FWC

chairman

praises

Senator Bill

Nelson's bill

A bill sponsored by Sen. Bill
Nelson is drawing praise from
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC). Chairman Rodney
Barreto said the bill (S. 3594)
would amend the Magnuson
Stevens Fishery Conservation
and Management Act to keep
federal fisheries on a steady
path to rebuilding.
"All seven FWC commission-
ers sincerely appreciate Sen.
Nelson's leadership and help
in trying to modify provisions
of the act that place inflexible
standards and tight deadlines on
our fishing industry and coastal
communities," Barreto said.
He said the bill would enable
managers to maintain a high
conservation standard for fisher-
ies while offering flexibility and
time to rebuild without causing
devastating economic harm.
"We are grateful for Sen. Nel-
son's support and tireless de-
termination to fix provisions of
the act that have caused sudden
and unanticipated hardships for
Florida's vital fishing econo-
my," Barreto said. "The bill also
includes provisions to improve
data collection and stock assess-
ments. This will help restore
the fishing public's trust in the
management process."
The bill is titled the Fishery
Conservation Transition Act.

in both the U.S. Army and the Air
Force, asserted he could do the job
without pay. And, White, a pharma-
cist as well as parent of three school-
age children, noted he would raise
no objections to pay cuts for board
members. Both men said their
professional career benefits and
schedules give them the flexibility
to serve the school system without
working any hardships.
Candidates also split over the pro-
posed Amendment Four concepts.
Sharpe said he opposes the idea of
putting final land use plan measures
on a general election ballot because
he believes the procedure will dis-
courage new business settling in the
county. Saul-Sena indicated she is


in the same camp, but for a different
reason. She expressed concern that
a land use change affecting and im-
portant only to South Hillsborough,
for example, could be put to a vote
involving disinterested communi-
ties in the north county. "We need
competent county commissioners
to make the right decisions the first
time around," she said.
As Niemann emphasized that
Amendment Four was designed to
prevent the very situation concern-
ing Saul-Sena, Cosentino noted
he supports the proposal because
"people should be able to control
their own communities." And Hos-
ler, after listening to his fellow can-
didates discuss the matter, said he'd
"just made up my mind" in favor of
the amendment.
The primary election is set for
Tuesday, August 24, in precincts
across the county. Early voting
began this week and continues for
South County voters at the Riv-
erview community and SouthShore
Regional libraries through August
21. Absentee ballots still can be
obtained by contacting the county
supervisor of elections office.

This whole room is filled with Santas of every size and shape, all of
which Sylvia has collected from yard or garage sales or in second-
hand stores.

Christmas collectors


* Continued from page 1
branch of a national club called the
Orange Blossom '56ers.
The reference to "56ers" comes
from the fact that the replicas were
first made for sale as a Christmas-
themed product at Buchanan's De-
partment Store in Minnesota, Syl-
via said.
"All the major stores had their
departments numbered, and the
replicas were sold in Buchanan's
Department 56. They were amazed
at how sales took off. People were
crazy about them," she said.
For awhile, Buchanan's partnered
with Disney to make the replicas
but stopped after about two years,
Sylvia said.
Sylvia's brother gave her the first
piece of Dickens collectibles, a
Tiny Tim house she now displays
on her front porch, but since child-
hood she has been interested in
collecting everything from Barbie
dolls and Marilyn Monroe figurines
to ceramic Easter bunnies.
Walking through her house, how-
ever, anyone can quickly see that
her favorite theme is Christmas.
She also has inch-high skaters
that move across an icy pond, and
lighted taverns and libraries and
newspaper offices. There's Big Ben
tower, and a complete replica of
Dickens's Village, complete with
Scrooge's home and the Cratchit's;
the home of the world-famous
character, Tiny Tim.
Many miniature buildings are rep-
licas of actual British structures.
"Take the Globe Theater, for in-
stance," she told me, pointing to a
large round piece on a corer table.
"Look down inside and you'll see
it's made exactly like the theater
where Shakespeare held his plays.
The nobles had seats, and the rest
of the audience stood." The round-
ed pieces show exactly that, with
some of the noble's balconies shad-
ed from the sun. Next to the theater
is a replica of Shakespeare's home.
More pieces about Dickens's life
are also displayed on a shelf of
their own chronologically; starting
with a replica of his birthplace and
including his newspaper office and
a hospital he started, as well as the
chateau he ran to when he wanted
to write.
Some of the pieces in the Dick-
ens Village are rare, including the
gold-domed planetarium and the
Queen's Jewelry Shop. The West-
minster Abbey and London Bridge
are also impressive.
Sylvia's husband is included when
it comes to her collecting. Besides
making mountains, lakes, gardens
and other types of backgrounds for
Sylvia's figurines, Robert has built
the special lighted shelving for
some of her collections.
Most are lighted when a switch is

I grew up on the Gulf Coast. I know these waters. And I'm
doing everything I can to clean them up.

BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf. And that includes
keeping you informed.

Searching For And Cleaning Up The Oil
You may have heard that oil is no longer flowing into the Gulf. But every
morning our spotter planes and helicopters continue to search for oil off the
coast, heading to areas previously mapped with satellite imagery and infrared
photography. If oil is found, they radio down to the ships and boats of all sizes
that are supporting the cleanup effort and working to collect the oil. These
are local shrimping and fishing boats organized into task forces and strike
teams, plus specialized skimmers mobilized from around the world.

We have recovered more than 35 million gallons of oil-water mixture from the
Gulf. Other methods have also helped remove millions of additional gallons
of oil from the water. We've deployed millions of feet of boom to protect
beaches and sensitive wildlife areas.

Hurricane Preparedness
In the event of a hurricane, our first priority is keeping people safe. In
coordination with the Coast Guard and local officials, we may suspend
operations temporarily but have organized to resume them as soon as possible.

Our Responsibility
We have already spent more than $3.9 billion responding to the spill and
on the cleanup, and none of this will be paid by taxpayers. We will work in
the Gulf as long as it takes to get this done. We may not always be perfect
but we will do everything we can to make this right.


For assistance, please call:
To report oil on the shoreline: (866) 448-5816
To report impacted wildlife: (866) 557-1401
To make spill-related claims: (800) 440-0858

Christmas collectors


OBSERVER NEWS RIVERVIEW CURRENT SCC OBSERVER 17


people leading donkeys through
crowded streets lined with palm
trees to noble's tents and of course,
the stable scene complete with
Mary and Joseph and everyone else
mentioned in the story of Jesus'
birth.
"It must have looked very much
like this at that time," Sylvia said,
referring to the fact that the first
Christmas occurred when everyone
living within the Roman District
had to appear in their home city to
be taxed. "It had to be very busy
and very chaotic."
But Sylvia's love of Christmas
doesn't stop with religious scenes.
"I've given myself rules about
this next collection," she said,
opening another door. The room
we're now in was filled with Santa
Clauses in different shapes and siz-
es, hand-made curio boxes on the
walls filled with three-dimensional
Christmas scenes, all surrounding a
Christmas tree covered with nothing
but Santa Claus ornaments. Santas
on horseback; in sleighs; putting
presents under Christmas trees; and
eating cookies. There were fat San-
tas and skinny Santas; Santas of all
kinds, many of which are Hallmark
collectables. "Everything in this
room is from a yard or garage sale
or second-hand shop. Except for


the Hallmark ornaments, I don't al-
low myself to buy anything for this
room new," she said.
And, as I mentioned earlier, Syl-
via's passion for collecting doesn't
stop with Dickens or Christmas.
Family photographs are grouped
by category, with .l.iin'" of
wedding and anniversary photo-
graphs; children and grandchildren
in graduation caps and gowns; and
assorted family gatherings and
events.
I knew readers would be curious
about the background of the couple
that lives in this unusual house.
Born in Apalachicola and raised
in Jacksonville, Sylvia is a true Flo-
ridian. Her father, Dan Suggs, ran
an oyster house and was a deputy
sheriff in Hillsborough County for
many years and was well-known to
the South County community.
She has been married for 53 years
to Robert, who is a lifelong Ruskin
resident.
"My family came from Wash-
ington State five generations ago,"
Robert told me. "That was back
when living here was kind of like
the wild West."
The couple has spent more than
50 years in the same house after
being married in the First Baptist
Church of Gibsonton.
"We had a very unusual wedding
there," Sylvia told me. "The car-
nival people were all in town and
everyone who lived in the area was
invited. The Giant and his wife,
midgets, all kinds of people from
the circus were there. We had a
grand old time. Back then, every-
one knew everyone else and was
friendly."
For many years Sylvia's home
was included on the Christmas
Home Tour sponsored by the
Ruskin Woman's Club but lately
she said she has not been up to
hosting that function.

One table in one of Sylvia's "Dickens Rooms" has a replica of the
Globe Theater where William Shakespeare's plays were first held,
alongside a miniature of his house.


For a change of pace, Sylvia has put her Santas in a Northern fall
scene.

It's better homemade
I make my own Italian salad dressing mix (I found the recipe from an
online recipe site) of dry herbs and seasonings, which I keep in a plastic
container or a glass jar with a sealed lid. Long ago, I bought the 'make
your own' mix that came with a beautiful glass shaker/server with a pour
spout lid. After I used it up, I realized that I could make my own mix.
I save hundreds of dollars each year by mixing the dry ingredients, and
then adding them to the healthy Extra Virgin Olive Oil and water and
shaking it into a delicious dressing. You can use your own jar or con-
tainer as long as you have a sealed lid or cap for it. You could also make
other types of dressing in the same manner.

Easy oven clean
On the day before you plan to
clean the oven, sprinkle baking
soda into the bottom and spray
it with water. Close the door and
leave it over night. It is astonishing
how the soda will release the dried-
on gunk. Your oven will need wip-
ing out and not much more!

Challenge: the genius within you
Behind the Mike By Mike Aun


There may be no greater sports
story than the one that comes out of
Santa Clara,
California.
There are some
tremendous
swimmers in
Santa Clara on
a swim team.
Just a bunch of
average kids, all born and reared in
the California area. There's nothing
very special about heir background.
There are 15 members on the Santa
Clara swim team. At the time, their
average was 16.
A friend on the speaking circuit,
Coach John Wooden, was tell-
ing me their story. He said he had
a chance to speak at their awards
banquet several years back and he
couldn't believe his ears.
Wooden tells the story of sitting
at the head table of their banquet
next to their coach, George Haynes.
Wooden asked Haynes, "George,
what's the secret of this fantastic
team of yours?" You see Wooden
couldn't believe his eyes either.
The average girl was 5 1/4" tall and
weighed 115 pounds.
The greatest swimmer in the
world at the time (and probably in
history) was there -- Mark Spitz.
He weighed only 150 pounds and
stood 5'-10". There he sat -- this
tiny guy, who held about world re-
cords. Wooden asked, "What's their
secret, George?" These kids weren't
imported from all over the country
-- they were from Santa Clara or the
surrounding areas.
Coach Haynes simply replied to
Wooden, "Come out tomorrow and
watch the workouts. You'll get your
answer."
The next day Wooden was there,


as the swim team got ready to work
out. He couldn't believe his eyes.
He thought they might come out
complaining or acting sluggish. Not
so. They burst through the locker
room doors with an enthusiasm that
would make any coach proud. Nev-
er a complaint. Never a negative
thought. Nothing but positive vibes!
Even the tiny 5-year-old kids came
dashing from the locker room.
Would you believe he's got those
five-year-old kids believing that
they're going to break world's re-
cords when they grow up? And get
this; the record hasn't even been set
yet! But they've done it before and
they'll do it again. There is genius in
the average person.
What's the capacity of a five-
year-old kid? Coach Wooden told
me there were 35 world records on
the walls of Coach Haynes' office,
but Haynes apologized for some er-
rors. You see, three of the world's
records were out of date. "We can't
make the plaques fast enough," said
Haynes.
Can you imagine having a swim
team that breaks world records
faster than you can make plaques?
That's motivation. That's belief in
one's self. That's a little genius in
the common man! Just a bunch of
average kids with a dream and a
coach driving them to further ex-
cellence, running up and down the
sidelines, "you can do three seconds
better, put all you've got."
You'd think those kids would
hate that guy's guts, wouldn't you?
They don't. Coach Wooden told me
he stood next to that coach after he
gave a speech and with tears stream-
ing down their faces they thanked
him from the bottom of their hearts
for what he had done for them.

Meet a man with
a message
Rev. Aaron Moore is the new
minister at Unity in Brandon. He
and his wife Mary invite every-
one to come visit the church at
the Brandon Woman's Club in
Brandon. If you are a reader of the
Daily Word you will be interested
in hearing Rev. Moore.
He felt a call to serve God when
he was 5 years of age. It was early
on in life that Rev. Moore began to
think upon the mysteries of exis-
tence and consciousness as well as
philosophy and human behavior.
He feels honored by God to have
served in the "Vineyard of God" in
his ministerial work. He has been
the minister of three churches, one
of which he founded. Rev. Moore
is an optimist and is careful to em-
phasize the positive aspects of a
message to the listeners.
As a part of his many studies,
Rev. Moore has studied compara-
tive religions and is convinced that
spiritual education is the answer
to the God-Self development.. In
his studies, he discovered that the
"Golden Rule" is found in twelve
religions of the world. He is also
a Business Chaplain and is inter-
ested in coaching, mentoring, pas-
toring, and study groups.
Rev. Moore and his wife Mary
who is also a minister share their
ministry at Unity in Brandon, 129
N. MoonAve., Brandon. For infor-
mation call 813-263-6155 orcheck

ence a professional can make.
Since this summer has been filled
with road trips and flights for my-
self and other family members, I've
noticed who else has been travel-
ing and (with a reporter's curiosity)
asked people on planes, rest stops
along the highway, and bus termi-
nals where they're going and what
they're up to.
Their answers prompted me to
question Linda after things slowed
down and I was able to spend
an hour in her office just to say
thanks.
From the talk on the road, it
seemed to me that people are taking
different kinds of trips this year than
in previous years and that sounded
like something worth exploring.
As it turns out, I was right.
Linda says that while her long-
term retired clientele on decent-
sized pensions are still going on
long trips to Africa and the Orient,
she's finding lots of middle-income
(and even lower income) families
downsizing trips from those taken
in previous years and looking for
new ways to vacation.
"Short three-to-five day cruises
are selling very well now," she told
me. The new terminals out of Port
Tampa and Port Manatee have re-
ally boosted travel on family-ori-
ented lines like Carnival and Hol-
land America. "Many families are
finding ways to save up for their

But cruising isn't the only mode
of travel where things are changing.
A lot of people are also changing
the way they travel by air.
Many airlines have recently dis-
continued First Class flight status in
favor of something called Business
Class. Never having heard of this, I
asked for a detailed description of
how Business and First classes dif-
fered.
It seems that where First Class has
always had exclusive comforts, like
high-end meals and in some cases
even luxuries like champagne and
caviar, Business Class is a step above

counting on my fingers, aware that
they only give the "authentic" per-

it has been nearly 40 years since
I was in Germany. I remembered
the smell of "gasthouses" (family-

by clapping hands and stomping
