SUN CITY CENTER A party
for 11,000 guests, plus? An anni-
versary observed for an entire year?
A celebration that both commemo-
rates the past and ensures pleasure
in the present? With a base budget
less than fifty cents per guest?
Sure! Why not! The impossible
just takes a little longer! So, where's
the operations manual?
But, there was no manual of in-
structions, no mentor hovering in
the wings, no published how-to
hardcover to lean on when Ann Ma-


rie Leblanc took on planning this
retirement community's 50th birth-
day bash in January, 2009. What the
two-term Community Association
director had was a few hints provid-
ed by slightly older municipal cous-
in, Sun City, Arizona, some seed
money, and a wealth of social en-
tertaining experience beginning as
mother to 10 children, grandmother
to 22. Leblanc has shown she knows
how to parlay her assets.
It's still a work in progress, but
Sun City Center's golden anniver-
sary promises to be a continuing ex-
travaganza of strolls down memory


lane, shared knowledge, dress up
and dress down occasions, athletic
events, tours both aquatic and on
terra firma, entertainments, food,
favors and just plain fun.
It all starts May 10, 2011 a half
century to the day after Del Webb,
a pioneering developer who en-
visioned entire communities de-
signed expressly for active retirees,
turned the first shovelful of dirt to
initiate his central Florida concept
- the second of three originals.
Webb's notion, so the story goes,
was to carve Sun City, Florida, fol-
lowing on the heels of the Arizona


cousin, from amidst the bay heads
of the former cattle ranch bordering
a two-lane, barely paved track be-
tween Wimauma and Ruskin. How-
ever, a much older Sun City already
existed south of Ruskin. So, ground
was broken for a Sun City forever
to be distinguished by the added
"Center."
The first half-century celebration
opens at 10 AM next May 10 with
a parade of marching bands, floats,
and units honoring many organiza-
tions which are the volunteer pillars
on which so much of the commu-

Balm to join list of planned South County communities


* By MELODY JAMESON
mi@observernews.net
BALM Following the trail
blazed by a half dozen other South
County planning processes, this
community prized for its rural iso-
lation now is scheduled to begin
hammering out its guideline for fu-
ture development.
The Balm Community Plan is
to begin taking shape in October,
according to Lisa Silva, the proj-
ect manager and a member of The
City-County Planning Commission
staff. The process, involving fo-
cused planning discussions among
various components of the com-
munity facilitated by a professional
planner and often stretching over a
period of 18 months or more, will
get underway with the customary
open house in the community, Silva
added.


At that time, community leaders,
other residents and large land own-
ers will get an opportunity to over-
view the entire process, ask ques-
tions of planning staff and begin
forming their advisory committee
representing the community as a
whole through the procedure.
Although the open house date has
not yet been pinned down, Mar-
cella O'Steen, Balm Civic Associa-
tion president, said this week she
expected it to be set after October
15 and probably conducted in the
Balm Community Center.
Customarily, in the course of the
planning process, the representa-
tive advisory group will take up
such issues as housing densities in
specific parts of the community,
anticipated transportation require-
ments, environmental preservation,
business district location, plus a


number of other community qual-
ity of life topics. Balm is the site of
a prison, a landfill, several barrow
pits and a literal mountain of dis-
posal material. Ultimately, the plan
will pin down the community's mu-
tually agreed to goals and priorities
for the next couple of decades.
Balm will be the eighth South
Hillsborough community to un-
dergo this initial planning process
during the present decade. Us-
ing different approaches, previous
plans have been formulated at the
grassroots level in Apollo Beach,
Gibsonton, Little Manatee River
South, Riverview, Ruskin, Sun
City Center and Wimauma. The
various plans designed to guide fu-
ture growth of the individual com-
munities considering the priorities
of their current residents were led
mostly by planning professionals


from either Hillsborough's Plan-
ning and Growth Management
Department or from The Planning
Commission. One of the plans,
however Apollo Beach was
worked out through a "charrette,"
a rapidly-paced approach aimed
at pulling a plan together in two to
three weeks.
While the several other plans
have preceded Balm's effort, the
little community tucked away east
of U.S. 301, between C.R. 672
and S.R. 674 is not the last South
County area in the current initial
planning cycle. Boyette, a growing
area of both subdivisions and open
acreage southeast of Riverview, is
to enter the process in 2014, Silva
said.
That same year, she added, the
community plan updating process
in south Hillsborough is to get un-


derway. Because community plans
must be revisited every 10 years
for any pertinent updating required,
the South County's earliest sets of
community guidelines Riverview
and Ruskin, for example will be
scheduled for updating beginning
in 2014.
Community plans, once ham-
mered out at the grassroots level
- often through compromises made
by various factions in a community
and reached through vigorous de-
bate are presented to the county
commission. If approved by com-
missioners, plans are forwarded
to Florida's Department of Com-
munity Affairs for its agreement.
Finally, when accepted at all three
levels, the plans become part of the
county's Comprehensive Plan in-
cluding its land use code.

Check gains on "personal best day"


I have a friend who is very in-
telligent and highly competi-
tive in everything she does. Not
only is she
a competi-
tor; in most
instances,
she is a
winner. At
19, she pur-
Positive chased her
Talk first home;
By William Hodges by 21, as a
single per-
son, she ad-
opted her first child. She now has
another adopted child, is married,
and has given birth to a child. She
realized early that competing with
her would be very difficult for her
children. So rather than have them
try to emulate what she was able
to achieve, she taught them the
concept of "personal best" when
they were very young.
"Personal best" is a concept that
encourages us to stretch and grow,
but does not measure our success
against winning or losing to out-
side forces. It encourages us to
compete against what we have ac-
complished in the past. Therefore,
if we do something a little bit bet-
ter today than we did yesterday,
we guarantee ourselves a place in
the winner's circle-our personal
winner's circle. We may not get
applause from society for standing
in this circle, but it will do won-
ders for our self-esteem.
My friend asked each of her chil-
dren to pick a personal best day for
the week and, on that day, to put
all their energy into doing their
very best. You might ask, "Why
not do that every day?" When I
asked that question, she said, "If
they try to make every day a per-
sonal best day, putting all their


energy into each day, there is a
strong possibility they might burn
out. However, if they have a spe-
cific day of each week, they can
pace themselves and really power
that day." Each child, on his or her
personal best day,was responsible
for reporting at the dinner table
the challenges they accepted for
the day, their victories and defeats,
and the lessons they learned.
Wouldn't it be great if each of
us decided to have a personal best
day, one in which we would do
everything possible to exceed the
levels to which we had previously
been working? So many times,
we don't compete in a contest,
or in any other aspect of life, be-
cause we are afraid that we cannot
win. If winning and losing is only
judged by who comes across the
finish line first, then there must
be 99 losers in a race of 100. In
the race of life, with millions on
this planet, there is bound to be a
"most successful person." Does
this mean that the millions of also-
rans should not enter the race? I
think not. It is important that each
of us not compete against other
people, but rather simply do our
personal best-and to be happy
and delighted when we extend our
own boundaries. Max Ehrmann
said it best in the Desiderata, "If
you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater or
lesser persons than yourself."
Pick a day each week and make
it your personal best day. Concen-
trate your energy on that day and
measure your gains, not against
the world, but against yourself. I
cannot help but believe both you
and the world will be better if you
give your personal best.


Curves changes location, not mission


Curves of Sun City Center re-
cently relocated to 761 Cortaro
Drive and while they may have
changed locations, their mission
to help women in the community
improve their quality of life hasn't
changed. "Curves is all about im-
provement -- improving women's

tion is an exciting change," said
Kathy, co-owner of Curves of Sun

cle groups and receive a great car-
dio workout. It includes all five

cise program: warm-up, strength
training, cardio, cool down, and
stretching.
In addition to a proven workout
plan, Curves of Sun City Center


offers various programs to help

obtaining a healthy lifestyle, in-
cluding: CurvesSmartTM personal
coaching system, a new technol-
ogy pioneered by Curves that of-
fers a precision designed workout,
moment to moment feedback and
progress reports to keep members
motivated while they work out
and a Weight Management Class.
The experienced instructors at
Curves offer one-on-one training
while members talk and inspire
one another during the workout.
Also, the comfortable, welcoming
atmosphere has helped women of
all fitness levels commit to an on-
going fitness program and achieve
results.

location and have been fortunate
to share the Curves experience
with the community," said Row-
ell.

Having leg pain?


It could be PVD

(Peripheral Vascular Disease)

When fatty deposits, called plaque, build up along the walls of blood
vessels and restrict blood flow, this causes peripheral vascular disease (PVD).
If left untreated, PVD can lead to a serious condition called critical limb ischemia,
which occurs when a severe blockage in the arteries decreases blood flow to the
hands, feet and legs, and causes severe pain, skin ulcers or sores.


Signs of Possible PVD
Cramps in the leg muscles
(calf, thighs or buttocks)
during activity, such as walking
or climbing stairs
Sores or wounds on toes,
feet or legs
One leg feels noticeably colder
than the other leg
Discolored skin on the foot or leg


Who Is At Risk?
People who have one or more of the
following:
Diabetes
High blood pressure
High cholesterol levels
Heart disease
Personal or family history of
stroke/PVD
Smoker

Enjoy the beach, but beware of the sun


Summer may be fading fast,
but the sun isn't going anywhere.
People heading to the beach this
August should take precautions.
With 3.5 million new cases of skin
cancer diagnosed annually, beach
goers need to take sun protection
more seriously than ever. More
than 90 percent of all skin cancers
are associated with sun exposure.
"The intensity of sun exposure
for beach goers is certainly elevat-
ed. Both water and sand can reflect
up to 80 percent of the sun's rays,
adding to your overall exposure,"
said Perry Robins, MD, President
of The Skin Cancer Foundation.
"However, beach and pool activi-
ties can be enjoyed safely as long
as people take some extra precau-
tions."
The Skin Cancer Foundation
recommends the following beach
sun safety tips:
Use plenty of sunscreen
For a day at the beach, choose
a water-resistant sunscreen with
a minimum 30 SPF (Sun Protec-
tion Factor). Following the sug-
gested FDA guidelines, a "water-
resistant" product must maintain
its SPF after 40 minutes of water
immersion, and a "very water-
resistant" product, after 80 min-
utes. For effective ultraviolent A
(UVA) radiation protection, select
products that have some combina-
tion of the following ingredients:
avobenzone, ecamsule (a.k.a.
MexorylTM), oxybenzone, titanium
dioxide and zinc oxide.
To ensure that you get the full
SPF of a sunscreen, apply 1 ounce


(about a shot glass full) 30 min-
utes before sun exposure to allow
the ingredients to fully bind to the
skin. The Skin Cancer Founda-
tion suggests putting sunscreen
on before putting on your bathing
suit. Not only will it provide extra
protection to the skin underneath,
but you are less likely to miss spots
and end up with sunburn along the
edges of your bathing suit. Don't
forget to apply sunscreen to the
tops of your feet.
Don't forget to bring sunscreen













with you and reapply every two
hours, or immediately after swim-
ming, toweling off, or sweating a
great deal. A half day at the beach
requires at least two applications
of sunscreen.
Cover up
Protect your head, face and eyes
with a broad-brimmed hat (at least
3" all the way around) and sun-
glasses that filter out 99 to 100
percent of UV radiation. Cover up
with long sleeves and pants when
you aren't swimming. For women,
brightly colored, long sarongs
are another good option. Or opt


for specially made sun protec-
tive clothing with an Ultraviolet
Protection Factor (UPF) of 30 or
higher. A product with a UPF of
30 will allow just 1/30th of the
sun's UV radiation to penetrate the
cloth. Surfers should wear a rash
guard or surf shirt.
Seek the shade and plan your
visit accordingly
The sun is most intense between
10 a.m. and 4 p.m., so why not
try an early morning or late after-
noon trip? You'll avoid the crowds
(and traffic) and have the beach to
yourself. And you'll get to enjoy
the calm of daybreak or a stunning
sunset. Early birds might consider
heading to the beach by 7 or 8 a.m.
and plan to leave by noon. Late
risers might opt to arrive after 3
p.m. and can stay as long as they
like.
Spending an entire day at the
beach is not recommended, but if
you do, be sure to take periodic
'shade breaks' under a beach um-
brella. However, not all umbrellas
are created equal. The most effective
ones provide a minimum UPF 30.
With a few simple precautions,
you can enjoy a beach excursion
without risking your skin's health.

Sun City Center turns 50


AUGUST 19, 2010


* Continued from page 1
nity's quality of life has been built
over five decades, Leblanc said this
week Television personality Steve
Jerve is set to be Grand Marshal
and among the expected honored


guests is the SCC couple who have
lived in the community since its
first decade.
The parade's exact route though
the town and on Sun City Center
Boulevard is being worked out with


Melody Jameson photo
Sun City Center's 50th anniversary commemorative booklet is
just one of myriad details that has kept Ann Marie Leblanc and a
25-member committee hopping for about 18 months with planning
and arranging the community's year-long anniversary celebration.
Designed to promote the "Lifestyle for the Young at Heart" theme,
the collector's item, including the observance's calendar of events
as well as details about the community that charted new ground in
retiree living a half century ago, is to be mailed to every home in
SCC before the year of celebration kicks of May 10, 2011. SCC is one
of the three original Del Webb retirement communities.


local law enforcement, she added,
but it will end in an outdoor com-
munity picnic on the Central Cam-
pus.
And, if it can be coordinated, Leb-
lanc said she's interested in arrang-
ing simultaneous ringing of each
SCC church's bell in concert with
the parade to signal the communi-
ty's call to its next half century.
The commemoration is to wrap
up 12 months later, with a gala at
Community Hall in April, 2012.
In between are a parade of homes
to demonstrate the differing struc-
tural styles built by the several de-
velopers, a birthday party toasting
the late Del Webb, an antique car
exhibition, and a silent auction and
an appraisal fair. On tap are golf
tournaments and pool parties and a
5K walk and "50" themed functions
in the fitness center and lawn bowl-
ing lessons at no charge. For history
buffs, Daughters of the American
Revolution are planning an ode to
the U.S. Constitution and one of
the community's historians, John
Bowker, is to present a visual ver-
sion of the community's story and
the performing arts club will offer a
couple of productions.
Recognizing the many retired
military service men and women,
Veteran's Day, 2011, will see the
11/11/11 Military Ball at Commu-
nity Hall, Leblanc noted. There's
also a pancake breakfast and an ice
cream social and a pot luck supper
built into the schedule at various
times. For the competition minded,
bridge and softball and horseshoe
contests are slated. Plus, the com-
munity's slate of annual events -
Holiday Walk, Follies, Fun Fest -
will be held as usual, she added.
Taking a lesson learned from the
Arizona cousin which celebrated its
half century mark in 2010, Leblanc
said she and her 25-member com-
mittee have aimed for a judicious


balance throughout the celebration
year rather than an overwhelming
menu of daily choices.
"Fifty is the big number here," the
CA director emphasized, adding the
committee has made a deliberate ef-
fort to hold many costs to consum-
ers down to 50 cents. But, to meet
this objective there had to be sub-
stantial underwriting, she indicated.
It began with $5,000 in seed money
from the CA. To supplement the
CA figure, she created and has been
implementing a tiered contribution
program giving "Proud Sponsor-
ship" status to donors of $50, the
"Elite" classification for contribu-
tions in the $51 to $99 bracket ,"
Silver" status to those able to pro-
vide between $100 and $500, and
conferring the "Golden" label on
contributions of $500 to $1,000
or more. SCC's newest developer,
Minto Communities, and The Ob-
server newspapers have contributed
in the latter category.
In addition, Leblanc has applied
for a $1,500 Neighborhood Grant
from Hillsborough County and
plans to stage a fund-raising pan-
cake, egg and sausage breakfast on
September 25 in the Florida Room.
Moreover, some generous cash do-
nations have materialized.
Expenses include a commemora-
tive 50th anniversary booklet being
compiled for delivery to every SCC
home as well as the anniversary
golf balls she wants to use as favors
and the observance mugs which can
be personalized for $10 each and
the celebration tee shirts not yet
priced.
If there's any money left over,
Leblanc said she thinks about a per-
manent installation on the Central
Campus marking the community's
half-century achievement when its
"Lifestyle for the Young at Heart"
was most honored.
Marker or not, though, the for-


mer journalism major who honed
people skills in the travel industry
and volunteers freely, wants most
that SCC residents "remember a
fantastic celebration" which made
them "aware of the history from the
past" and gave them "enjoyment of
the present."
If so, the credit will be due the
hard-working committee, she as-
serted. "I'm a dreamer," she ac-
knowledged "I have taken my
dreams on behalf of the community
to them (committee members) and
they have made them come true."

Having faith in a roll of the dice


OBSERVER NEWS RIVERVIEW CURRENT SCC OBSERVER 9


On November 23, 1999, I knew
what my responsibilities were. I
was just 24 hours into my 37th year
and was beginning the journey of
a lifelong
dream. As
I puttered
my sailboat


Observations
By Mitch Traphagen
mitch@observernews.net


out of the
Ruskin ma-
rina to "Out
There," I had
no idea what
would hap-
pen over the


six-month window we opened for
our adventure sailing into unknown
waters. But I knew what I had to
do. I was responsible for ensuring
the boat systems remained ship-
shape, I was responsible for follow-
ing and understanding the weather
to ensure our safety at sea. At the
time, those things were two very
big responsibilities, but they were
clearly defined and I was up to the
challenge. For years, I had prepared
to be up for it. I was responsible -
I certainly didn't feel as though I
could just roll the dice of fate.
Responsibility is a funny thing.
Who is responsible for the nation's
financial mess? Some might say
the president, others might say the
bankers, others still the consum-
ers. Who is responsible for finding
a cure for cancer or AIDS? Who is
responsible for finding a solution to
the health care crisis in this nation?
Is anyone really trying to fix any-
thing anymore?


Today I am less certain of my re-
sponsibilities than I was 11 years
ago. I have a deeply-felt responsi-
bility to the readers of this newspa-
per and to the community. I have a
responsibility to my wife, my em-
ployer and even my cat and dogs. I
have a responsibility to try to be a
decent person and to be honest.
But what can I do about the eco-
nomic slowdown? What can I do
about the unemployment rate? I
can prepare a boat for sea, but
how can I contribute in even a
small way to the nation and the
public good?
I envy the 37-year-old me who
knew his responsibilities. I envy
the ease in which those responsi-
bilities could be so clear and well-
defined. And now, as a 47-year-old,
I have to weigh my responsibilities
and there is nothing clear or well-
defined about them. Which, of
course, places me with millions of
others wondering much the same
things do they pay the mortgage
or the electric bill; is it OK to pull a
gun on Peter in order to pay Paul?
When I was growing up, I lived
next door to the milkman. His job
was to deliver milk and other dairy
products to little coolers on the
front steps of almost every home in
town. With that job, he raised four
children. I never knew them to lack
for food and their house was just as
nice as everyone else's. My mother
didn't work outside of the home in
those days, and although she did
return to teaching as I got older, it

was more out of choice than neces-
sity. We had a color television, a
car and then another car and there
was never a shortage of food in the
cupboard.
My first job was at a Phillips 66
gas station in town. I pumped gas
for which most people paid in cash.
For the handful of people who
had a credit card, I had a little clip
board with which I would get a car-
bon copy imprint of the credit card
and the customer's signature. The
receipt would go into the cash reg-
ister to be sent in and mysteriously
processed by Bank Americard or


MasterCharge, both entities since
renamed as VISA and MasterCard.
In that age, highways were be-
ing built, not abandoned. Every
town had the faint belief that it,
too, could become the next Minne-
apolis or Chicago. We believed that
the American Dream was a work
in progress and there was still a
heck of a lot of work to do. I didn't
know anyone who was really rich,
although I could tell that some of
my friends were better off than me
and others. Few people had a lot of
money, yet still things were accom-
plished. Kids were raised, homes


and cars were purchased, and a lot
of the kids I grew up with went off
to college.
Everyone knew who Howard
Hughes was. "He is a billionaire,"
people would say with reverence.
Most people couldn't imagine a
billion dollars. Today, there are
no milkmen. No one can make a
living delivering dairy products.
Highways are being closed for lack
of funds to maintain them and the
United States has fallen from being
number one in the world in college
graduates to number 13.

until joining the U.S. Army in
1992. Today, he is Staff Sergeant
William Burt, a decorated mili-
tary professional who has served
in Korea, Italy and, most recently,
in Iraq.
He was in Iraq in 2007 when it
appeared as though he had suffered
a stroke. He was hospitalized and
was ultimately transferred to Wal-
ter Reed Medical Army Medical
Center in Washington, D.C. In
April of 2008, he was diagnosed
with Hodgkin's Lymphoma, a
form of cancer originating from
white blood cells.
On August 29, 2010, he will be
medically discharged from the
U.S. Army for Paraneoplastic
syndrome, a disease that is a con-
sequence of cancer.
This Sunday, August 22, his
family and friends are inviting
the community to welcome Ser-
geant Burt home. The event will
take place from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at
Veteran's Memorial Park at 3602
U.S. Highway 301 in Tampa.
August 22 is also Sergeant Burt's
birthday.
It is an opportunity to welcome
home a native son, a hero, and a
man who has selflessly served
his country for the past 18 years.
Welcome home, Sergeant Burt -
and thank you for your service.

Foibles Whit n' Whimsey
by Nancy Porter-Thai
What strange foibles lurk within our wiggly little thought
waves? Foibles may define us. They are the quirky or kooky little be-
haviors we act out to assert our own distinct personalities. Some carry a
rabbit's foot for good luck, others refuse to wait in lines, attend funerals
or ride elevators. There are foibles we talk about and others we never
share. Some foibles are neurotic and nutty, some scary, while others are
garden variety nonsense. Crack pots have foibles that fit into each of the
categories. Those folks are usually identified by outrageous behavior.
We call them characters, or sometimes worse.
Sometimes foibles become quintessential eccentricities that promote
one to wear kooky beanies, sneakers to cocktail parties, or acting out
other distinguishing idiosyncrasies without concern for what others
think. Eccentrics, defined by their unique foibles, seldom conform to
any style or fit any prescribed mold. They're seemingly immune to judg-
ment or ridicule. Most of us don't trust the world enough to be totally
eccentric, or be with someone who is, so we settle for simple foibles that
don't clutter minds or make too many demands.
We collect and discard foibles as life experiences mold us and
change us. There seems to be a thin line between foibles
that work for us and those that don't. One thing for
sure, we all have a squirrelly foible or two; some
out there in plain sight and some lurking in
a shadowy, yet to be discovered, part

Uniforms help patients identify
caregivers at South Bay Hospital


In order to improve the patients'
experience, South Bay Hospital is
implementing an employee uni-
form program. The uniforms will
be color-coded by profession, al-
lowing patients to quickly and
easily identify their caregivers.
The first to transition to uniforms
will be Nurses, Certified Nursing
Assistants (CNA), Paramedics,
Monitor Technicians and Labora-
tory employees.
"Our employees already wear
name badges that identify who
they are and what they do within
the hospital, and that will con-
tinue," says Sharon Roush, Chief
Executive Officer at South Bay
Hospital. "Color-coded uniforms
make identifying who is in your
room even easier."
The nurses will be recognized


by their classic white scrubs or a
white scrub top with blue scrub
pants. CNAs, Paramedics and
Monitor Technicians will wear all
blue scrubs, and Laboratory em-
ployees will wear purple scrubs
or a purple polo with khaki pants.
Various departments throughout
the hospital will be transitioning
to uniforms over the course of the
next year.
"The decision to transition to
caregiver uniforms was based on
patient feedback and industry re-
search," says Roush. "It is a part
of our continuing efforts to pro-
vide quality care while improving
our patients' experience."
If you have questions or would
like more information about South
Bay Hospital, please call Melissa

Complaints about overgrowth,
weeds and underbrush are among
the top five complaints Hillsbor-
ough County Code Enforcement
receives each month, particularly
at this time of year because of the
summer rains. The County's Mini-
mum Standards Ordinance is clear
- keep your property neat, attrac-
tive, and safe.
Here are some answers to the
most common questions property
owners ask Code Enforcement
officers.
How is overgrowth defined?
Overgrowth is defined by the
County as the growth of grass,
weeds or underbrush exceeding 10
inches in height within 200 feet of
a building, structure, recreational
area, or street right of way; and is
determined by the County to cre-
ate a nuisance for the surrounding
community.
Why is overgrowth considered
to be a violation?
The excessive growth of grass,
weeds or underbrush creates a
harborage or shelter for disease
carrying insects and vermin, and
poisonous reptiles. Overgrown
properties detract from the overall
value of the neighborhood and can
attract a criminal element into your
community. Cases gave been doc-
umented of criminals using over-
grown properties to hide from law
enforcement, as well as to commit
other nefarious acts under cover of
the grass and weeds.


What about plants and
Xeriscaping?
Maintenance of ornamental
plantings such as shrubs and
hedges are not regulated by the
Minimum Standards Ordinance.
How can I report a suspected
violation to the County?
Suspected violations of this Code
should be reported to Hillsborough
County Code Enforcement by
calling 274-6600 or logging onto
www.hillsboroughcounty.org/hcce
and clicking on the Online Servic-
es link on the left side of the page.
Can I remain anonymous when
registering a complaint?
Yes. Hillsborough County does
not require that you provide any
personal identifying information
when registering your complaint.
It should be noted that any infor-
mation provided to the depart-
ment, including names, phone
numbers, or email addresses, are
subject to the Public Record Laws
of the State of Florida and must be
provided to anyone who requests
the information. If you wish to
remain completely anonymous
when making your complaint, do
not provide any of this information
to the department when registering
the complaint.
What do I do if I've received
a notice of violation from Code
Enforcement?
If you have any question about
what is required of you to achieve
compliance with Hillsborough


County's Code, contact the inves-
tigator assigned to your case. The
investigator's name is listed at the
bottom of the notice you received.
The goal of Code Enforcement is
to preserve the quality and value
of public and private property, and
maintain a high standard of living
by eliminating conditions that
threaten the life, health, safety, and
general welfare of the public. The
department recognizes that this
goal is most effectively achieved
through the education of, and co-
operation with, the citizens of
Hillsborough County.
Hillsborough County Code
Enforcement provides this type
of information each month to
increase awareness of common
code enforcement related issues;
address topics that concern
citizens; and help provide infor-
mation regarding the reporting
of code enforcement issues and
violations.
For more information or more
safety tips, residents should call
(813) 276-2033 or visitwww.hills-
boroughcounty.org/hcce.


Despite many odds, these kids
earned an 'A'
WIMAUMA Their parents' average educational level is elemen-
tary school. The family income is sub-poverty and home is a changing
concept: Some of these children must follow the crops with their fami-
lies, meaning they leave town in the spring and stay away until late fall.
The language is Spanish.
Yet the children of RCMA Wimauma Academy took the FCAT in
English last March, and just won their school another 'A.'
"It wasn't high scores that earned the A," said school director Mark
Haggett. "It was rising scores. Seventy-seven percent of our fourth-
and fifth-graders made significant gains in reading and 79 percent
gained in math."
For Wimauma Academy, the A is the sixth in eight years. The Wimau-
ma kids earned it in a year when the number of Hillsborough County
elementary schools winning As declined to 72 from the previous 91.
It's further affirmation that the school's unique tactics are succeed-
ing against the special challenges of its students. The focus isn't just
on learning, but on virtually every need in the life of the child -- and
the family.
Wimauma Academy starts by preserving the Hispanic culture of its
students. Meals often are Mexican, and the frequent parent conferences
are in Spanish.
Marcela Estevez, who previously worked for the Mexican consulate
in Orlando, is the school's Family Support Specialist. She helps fami-
lies get health care and deal with problems as varied as immigration,
finances and transportation.
"Without her," said Haggett, "I don't know how the school would
function."
The service level is most intense when the migrant families return
in the fall. School starts with a 7 a.m. breakfast, and may continue past
sunset.
Teacher aides and volunteer tutors replace teachers in the afternoon,
but four-fifths of the students remain. Their parents have work to do.
Amidst the success, there is one large regret. After fifth grade, chil-
dren must leave Wimauma Academy, sometimes in tears. Haggett and
his staff want to expand into middle-school years. So does Redlands
Christian Migrant Association, the non-profit childcare agency that op-
erates the school.
"The FCAT scores show our kids are successful while they're in
our school," said Barbara Mainster, RCMA's Executive Director. "We
want to keep them through middle school."
RCMA plans to break ground on the $1.8-million middle-school ex-
pansion this winter. About $860,000 of the cost has been donated or
pledged. A fund drive is under way.
Nationwide, some 60 percent of migrant students drop out of high
school. Haggett believes each youth becomes set on staying in school
or leaving by the end of middle school, the eighth grade.
"We make them comfortable in elementary school, and we get them
accustomed to success," he says. "When we do that in middle school, I
think these kids will be on their way."

Life experience brings back her father's words of wisdom


When Ginger Anzalone was
growing up in South Bend, Indi-
ana, she didn't realize how much
her father's work would influence
her life.
But her dad, Dr. John F. Santos,
was a pioneer in gerontology way
before the phrase "aging well"
was invented. While others in his
field were
advising el-
ders to sit in
their rocking
chairs, Dr.
Santos was
working as
Over a gerontolo-
Coffee gist at the
By Penny Fletcher University of
penny@observernews.net Notre Dame
figuring out
ways to keep people active and
healthy long past the expectations
of the day. So Ginger was exposed
to talk about ways to help elders
live a better lifestyle from her early
childhood.
As vice president of Vesta Facili-
ties Management of Kings Point in
Sun City Center, she initiates and
oversees programs at Kings Point's
clubhouses and community centers,
keeping track of what the people
want to do next and in which events
and clubs interest is fading.
"We have three generations here
and their needs and desires are
very different," she told me in an
interview last week. "Thirty years
ago, you looked like your neighbor,
thought like your neighbor and you
all liked the same things. It's en-
tirely different now."
Trying to continually balance
events and activities for the differ-
ent age groups now living in the


Kings Point community, Ginger
must blatantly label everything so
that people can easily recognize
which ones they want to attend.
Even the terms used have to be con-
sidered, she explained. "One gen-
eration refers to cocktail hour while
another calls the same type of thing
happy hour. The Beach Boys mu-
sic is fun for one age group but the
generation that likes Big Band mu-
sic doesn't want to hear it. I have
to make sure people clearly under-
stand what's available to them."
Keeping track of what new resi-
dents want is part of her job, while
some crafts and clubs are dying for
lack of interest. "The resident base
has changed from when it (Kings
Point) was built," she said.
Now 51, Ginger started work-
ing for Sun City Center developer
Al Hoffman in 1988, beginning
at Walden Lake in Plant City and
moving to Sun City Center in
1998. Hoffman was the developer
of Kings Point until its facilities
were sold to residents in 2001 and
the Kings Point management com-
pany which Ginger was chosen to
manage was formed.
The mother of three daughters
first began proposing senior fitness
programs to her company years be-
fore they were put in place.
She was simply ahead of her time.
Fortunately for residents, by 1998
views had changed and she began
initiating the programs that have
since grown by leaps and bounds.
Now senior fitness is a huge part

fact that she started with 21 classes,

GingerAnzalone, vice president
of Vesta Facilities Management
of Kings Point in Sun City Cen-
ter, says she acquired her love
of making and keeping senior
citizens strong and healthy from
her father, a noted gerontologist,
long before fitness was consid-
ered an important component of

facility, and that these have grown
to more than 115,000 visits to be-
tween 40 and 50 programs a year.
Plus the 230 clubs and all the spe-
cial events held in three clubhous-
es.
"After three years of running fit-
ness programs (in the main club-
house) people could see they were
working," she told me. It was at
that point that Hoffman put her in
charge of developing and designing
the South Clubhouse and after that,
the Renaissance Club. Ncv. home
buyers did not want the same things
that previous generations had," she
said. "We had to initiate new pro-
grams and activities for them. Peo-
ple will gravitate to where they're
comfortable. It's like a whole city
in here, with diverse tastes, which


makes each day a challenge."
It is obviously a challenge Ginger
loves, but definitely not her first- or
her most difficult.
After a serious car accident that
left her with a broken neck shortly
after graduating college, she says
she was fortunate enough to have
a surgeon who believed movement
and activity were the keys to heal-
ing.
"If I had had a doctor who told
me to sit in a chair and do noth-
ing, I would have been so arthrit-
ic I could not have gotten up and
walked," she said. But instead, her
doctor had her move every way she
possibly could.
"I learned first-hand about the
importance of fitness, exercise, and
a healthy lifestyle," she said.
This period in her life reminded
her of her father's passion and be-
lief that fitness was a big part of
aging well while he was promoting
the early studies of gerontology at
Notre Dame.
Something clicked, and although
she already had a degree in arts and
communications, she went back to
school and earned degrees in sci-
ence and wellness and finally a
Master's in Business Administra-
tion.
All the while, she was building
her own body back to wellness. "In
1985, I went to the Cooper Clinic,
to immerse myself in fitness and
activity," she said.
Until our interview, I did not
know it was Ken Cooper of the
Cooper Clinic in Texas who first
started what he named "aerobic ex-
ercise."
She started slow, building up to
marathon running, and now, triath-


lons, which consist of swimming,
biking and running. "They let me
use a snorkel in the swimming
competitions because I can't turn
my neck," she said.
The neck and spinal injuries from
her accident do not hold her back.
But not all her energy goes into
physical pursuits. She also uses her
mind to think up new ways for se-
niors to be active and healthy.
Just recently she applied to be-
come a member of the Advisory
Board of the International Council
on Active Aging, along with some
well-known heavy hitters in the
medical and fitness industries.
"I have submitted my candidacy
because I believe I can be of ser-
vice there," she said. This would
not take her from her duties at
Kings Point.
"My vision here is to provide ex-
ceptional lifestyles to a constantly
evolving community," she said.
I, for one, certainly hope the
ICAA committee in charge of vot-
ing on board members can see her
sincerity and proven track record
and choose her for its board.

Every year, KHCB coordinates

without the help of some dedicated
volunteers and funding partners.
"On behalf of Keep Hillsbor-
ough County Beautiful, I would
like to thank all the individuals
and groups who have made a dif-

Commerce. "I wish we could give

KHCB is a non-profit organiza-
tion whose mission is to prevent
litter, promote recycling and con-
servation, clean up and beautify
our community through action,
education, awareness and by fos-
tering stewardship.


It is funded mainly through the
Hillsborough County Solid Waste
Management Department but
seeks additional funds to support
and expand its programs, which
include the Great American Clean-
up, International Coastal Cleanup,
Adopt-A-Road, Adopt-A-Shore
and Adopt-A-Spot programs.
KHCB was formed in 1992 by
a group of concerned residents,
who saw that litter was becoming
a problem in the county through
lack of community pride, limited
knowledge of disposal options and
urban growth.

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

The color of history and how to sound like a moron

for those of us under the age of 70
to see that life and to revel in the

Kodak introduced Kodachrome
film for 35mm cameras in 1938.
That film remained the standard
for color and durability until pro-
duction ceased last year. As digital
cameras have gone mainstream,
fewer people are interested in us-
ing slide film. The last roll of
Kodachrome ever manufactured
was traced to Steve McCurry, a
photographer for National Geo-
graphic. Last month that 36-frame
roll of slide film was processed at
the world's last remaining Kodak-

Dwayne's Photo has announced
they will cease Kodochrome pro-

of an era for a film that changed
how life in the 20th Century will
be remembered. To most photog-

the amazing advances of digital

life to life like Kodachrome. As
a friend (OK, my sister Pam) said,
witnessing the end of Kodachrome

Doreen and Carlos Rivera have
recently joined the South Shore
Office of Keller Williams Realty
and will be working from the office
located in the Mira Bay/Sweet Bay
Plaza in Apollo Beach. Prior to
joining Keller Williams, Doreen
and Carlos were licensed with
Golf & Sea Realty, which recently
merged with this same office.
Doreen, a retired teacher of 34
years, shared, "We plan to take
advantage of all the advanced
training programs that Keller Wil-
liams offers such as Social Media,
Luxury Homes, Commercial Real
Estate, Short Sales, and Systems
for Mega Teams. With this added
support, our clients are really go-
ing to see a lot of benefit from our
change to Keller Williams."
Team Leader Gary Kaukonen
said, "It's exciting for us to add an-
other experienced real estate team
to our office. Doreen and Carlos
are technologically savvy and are


were both licensed REALTORS.
My previous experience as a con-
struction inspector has been valu-
able to both buyers and sellers, and
I have worked with many clients
who prefer working with a bilin-
gual real estate agent. This was a
perfect move for us."


Extra storage
My husband built small draw-
ers that slide into the area of the

put small castors on them and I
can store small things like cookie
sheets or cans of veggies one row
high. It's slick!

ning, it is inspirational.

gress at www.loc.gov/pictures/

And now let's fast-forward
from the tail end of the De-
pression to a challenge of our
modem times. Yes, there are
economic parallels to today; in-
cluding joblessness and foreclo-
sures all serious matters. But
today, thanks to the enormous
reach of the web, we also have
the challenge of understanding
what "Morons" are trying to say.
Never before in history have mo-
rons had the platform to speak as
they have now. I have a num-
ber of teenage "friends" on Fa-
cebook and like most teenagers
they are sometimes foolish or...
morons, if you will. I frequently
have no idea what they are say-
ing (which, I guess, makes me a
moron, too).
If the web is responsible for
giving "Morons" a platform, it
should also be credited with giv-
ing the rest of us the tools we
need to communicate with them.
Now, thanks to the web's Dialec-
tizer, I can converse like a "Mo-
ron", too. Take, for example, the
following sample paragraph:
The Internet gives all of us the
opportunity to be ...ii,.i th,, we
are not. Do you want to be a Su-
perhero? You can do it. Do you
want to be an investment banker
or the CEO of a shadowy corpo-
ration? The Internet gives you
the platform. Behind the pri-
vacy of your keyboard, you can
be ( rit,,1.. you want to be. It's
up to you to convince others of
your amazing accomplishments
in life.
Now, let's run that through
the Dialectizer using the Moron
Translation:
De Innernet gibes all of us de
opportuty t' be somedigg webuh
are not. Want t'be a Supehheho,
duh...uh...? You can do it. Lee
me lone! Want t'be an inbestmin
bankeh or de CEO of a shadowy
corporashun, duh...uh...? De
Innernet gibes you de platf'm.
Behind de pribacy of your key-
board, uh uh uh uh, you can be
anydigg you want t' be. It's up
t'you t' conbiss odehs of your
amazigg acc 'plishmins in life.
In addition to giving our ad-
vanced society the opportunity
to sound like a "Moron", it can
also be considered a platform
for learning. Eventually, after
using the Dialectizer enough, I
may reach the lofty intellectual
level in which I can actually un-
derstand what the heck all that
means. Life is, after all, a learn-
ing experience.
In addition to the Moron trans-
lation, the Dialectizer also pro-
vides the ability to translate your
words into other popular, but dif-
ficult to grasp, languages such as
Redneck, Jive, Cockney, Elmer
Fudd, Swedish Chef, Pig Latin
and Hacker.
You no longer have to feel
alienated from your "Moron"
friends on Facebook. If you
can't truly be a moron, thanks to
the Dialectizer, you can at least
sound like one. Try it out for
yourself at www.rinkworks.com/
dialect.

Mitch Traphagen Photo
The American Dream is still a work
in progress. As a nation, we need
some faith and to take responsibil-
ity again.

Observations
0 Continued from page 9
As for Howard Hughes, he would
certainly be less well known today.
Forbes estimates there are more
than a thousand billionaires. Most
are living in the U.S., although the
number of billionaires from India is
rapidly closing in.
What happened? How is it a milk-
man could raise a family of four yet
today no one could live on a milk-
man's salary? How could gas sta-
tions afford to hire people to pump
gas but today there are only self-
service pumps? What happened to
our priorities? Did our responsibili-
ties change?
Albert Einstein once said that he
did not believe that God rolled dice
with the universe. Coming from the
20th Century's greatest mind, that
is a comforting thought there is
order and things happen for a rea-
son. My faith is unshakable and
so is my belief in the blessing (or
curse) instilled in us known as free-
will. To which comes another phys-
icist, Werner Heisenberg and his
Uncertainty Principle which states
that the only certain outcome is the
outcome that has already happened
- and even that is based upon the
perspective of the observer. Uncer-
tainty has become the hallmark of
this time in America and around the
world. While we utter our faith that
things will all work out, we reach
across the table to pick up the dice.
Perhaps that is how it should be.
Dreams, chances and risks are the
foundation of this nation. Picking
up the dice and having faith may
not be so contradictory after all.
It also seems the responsibility is
more clear than it may appear. If I
throw snake eyes, it is me not
God, not the president, not Einstein
- but me, that is responsible for
it.
I'm lousy with a hammer and a
saw. I can't build bridges or space-
ships. But I can work to promote
the good over the bad. I do have the
ability to share the otherwise untold
stories of dignity and decencey and
confidence. Through this newspa-
per, I not only have the ability, I
have the responsibility, regardless
of how large or small that may be.
The United States is the only na-
tion to have landed a man on the
moon. We completed the Panama
Canal when other nations had
given up the massive project. We
built an Interstate Highway system
that, at the time, was the envy of
the world. It's time to build some-
thing again. It's time to have some
faith. It's time to remember that the
American Dream is still a work in
progress. In order to do all of that,
we have to have faith and we have
to be willing to roll the dice. But
most of all, we have to take some
responsibility again.

Celebrating

100 years
Sarah Knickerbocker will cel-
ebrate her 100th birthday on Aug.
20. She was born Aug. 20 1910
and grew up on a farm in central
New York State. Her youngest son
still owns the farm. She has six
living children of whom five will
be present to help her celebrate
this special birthday. She also has
seven step-children from a second
marriage. Both of her husbands
have predeased Sarah. She has
been very active in church work
and helped to establish a church
in central New York. Her favorite
craft is quilting. She also enjoys
reading the Bible and studying.
Sarah moved to Sebring in 1981
and to Sun City Center in 1996
where she currently lives.

Director to
speak at Unity
Community of Joy
Executive Director for LifePath
Hospice, Inc., and Unity Reverand
Roxanne Riley will speak at Unity
Community of Joy, Aug 22, 10am
in the Beth Israel Social Hall, 1115
Del Webb East. Her Hospice area
includes Sun City Center.
Roxanne is well known as a dy-
namic, funny and enlightening
speaker on spiritual principles.
Over the years Roxanne has re-
ceived many gifts from Spirit. How-
ever, she says, cooking is not one
of them. She has been drawn to the
spiritual life ever since she got to be
Mother Mary in a kindergarten play.
While she was raised in the Catholic
tradition she was not content with
the limited roles women could hold
in the Church. As a young adult she
was a spiritual nomad and searched
for a place of worship that fit with
her personal belief system.
It did not take long for Roxanne to
fall in love with the Unity philoso-
phy of practical Christianity.
When she moved to Tampa she at-
tended Unity Clearwater and took
several classes and ended up en-
rolled in the Emma Curtis Hopkins
College and Theological Seminary
where she earned her Master's in Di-
vinity in 2002. She was privileged
to serve as the Minister of Unity in
Brandon for a year. Roxanne also
holds a Bachelor of Science in Nurs-
ing and Master's in Public Admin-
istration. She currently works at
LifePath Hospice where over 1,200
patients and families are cared for
as they cope with a life-limiting ill-
ness.
For more information on this ser-
vice call Unity Community of Joy's
Spiritual Leader, Dr. Betty Martin-
Lewis at 813-298-7745.

If You Drink, Do Not Drive! The best
advice is, if you drink alcohol, do not
drive. Even one drink of alcohol can
affect your driving. With two or more
drinks in your bloodstream you are
impaired and could be arrested. It takes
about an hour for your body to get rid of
each drink. Time is the only thing that
will sober you up. There are ways of
dealing with social situations. Arrange to
go with two or more persons and agree
which one of you will not drink alcohol.
You can rotate among the group being a
"designated driver." You can use public
transportation or a cab, if available.
