Mail delivery

in South

County

undergoing

change
* By MELODY JAMESON
mi@observernews.net
Part of the continuing consolida-
tion pattern aimed at cutting costs,
another change in U.S. Postal Ser-
vice mail delivery in South Hills-
borough is set for next week.
The backedn" alteration should
be barely noticeable to most cus-
tomers, local USPS authorities say,
and the ongoing South County con-
solidation does not include closure
of any of the region's eight post of-
fices.
The changes, though, do forecast
creation of two primary mail deliv-
ery "hubs" to serve all of the South
County's communities from the
Alafia River to the Hillsborough-
Manatee County line.
Beginning Thursday, September
30, carrier mail delivery to Gibson-
ton will originate at the Riverview

Hillsborough an array of family
services, from the use of comput-
ers and computer classes to train-
ing programs for parents and first
aid classes, including CPR train-
ing. In addition to a computer lab
that includes use of a fax machine,
telephone and photocopier, the
new office also has space for com-

area for children.
The new office is more centrally
located to all South Hillsborough
communities than the previous of-

"It's a wonderful place in a great
neighborhood where anyone can

New neighbors make

instant friendships


* By PENNY FLETCHER

APOLLO BEACH Moving to
a new neighborhood, having a sick
spouse or child, or suddenly be-
coming widowed, are experiences
no one wants to face alone.
And what about that dreaded call
in the middle of the night? After
receiving it, how do you know
who to call to help?
The MiraBay Ladies have solved
those problems with an organiza-
tion that automatically takes in
anyone who moves into their com-
munity as soon as they apply.
What's more, the group also does
things just for fun!
"It started six-and-a-half years
ago with just three people," said
Renate Greenfield, who heads up
the organization's current leader-
ship team. "We now have more
than 90 women. When you 'join'
you're like family. It's a wonderful
thing, having so many real friends,
especially when you first move to
a new place and don't know any-
one."


The main group meets once a
week but there are subgroups for
people with specific common in-
terests within the organization as
well.
"We take turns planning a week-
ly event, and they're all great
because everybody wants to be
original and have something really
fun and unusual," said leadership
group member Mari Tyre. "We
have a free event every week, ex-
cept for the cost of the things we
do, of course. We go to museums,
movies, have dance classes and
luncheons. Once we even had a
pajama party."
The subgroups include bowl-
ing and Bunka thread art, various
kinds of music and dance, card
groups and more.
The women's husbands get a
chance to meet at some of the
events and make friends too, add-
ed Karen Stone. "The men come
to an event, find someone they like
or a group that plays their favorite
sport and then they can get togeth-

Sun City Center's new developer on track for holiday presentations


a By MELODY JAMESON
mi@observernews.net
SUN CITY CENTER Decem-
ber here this year is likely to be,
at least from one perspective, the
month of Minto.
The retirement community's lat-
est and probably last developer,
Minto Communities, LLC, is on
track and on time to present five
of its models chosen for Sun City
Center as well as open its sales
center during the holiday season.
In addition, the company is out-
lining a new, high end residential
section.
The Canadian builder, which
purchased the remaining land suit-
ed to another 800 or so homesites
from WCI Communities early this
summer, currently is constructing
two villa style structures in Kings
Point's Oakley Greens and three
single family homes in the Siena
section of Renaissance, accord-
ing to Bill Bullock, the company's
West Central Florida manager.
Roof trusses were to be raised this
week on the two KP buildings -
each containing two villas, and at
the same time foundation slabs for
the single family dwellings were
scheduled for pouring.
The villa designs run from 1,300
to about 1,800 square feet, Bullock
said, while the Minto single family
concepts are in the 1,540 to 2,180
square footage range. The single
story homes all are concrete block


and will not differ greatly in exte-
rior appearance from the houses al-
ready built around them. However,
the Minto differences will be no-
ticeable in interior configurations,
he said. Pricing is not yet set.
The company also has formally
leased the former WCI sales center
on the south side of SCC Boule-
vard near 1-75 where it has set to
work refurbishing the expansive,
high-ceilinged front section as the
onsite center of Minto marketing
efforts, Bullock noted. Minto is
not structurally altering the elabo-
rate sales center, built by WCI be-
fore the national real estate market
meltdown and unused since early
2009, but is "freshening up" its
projected sales headquarters with
new paint and d6cor, the Canadian
executive added.
The visitors information and
housing demonstration area oper-
ated by WCI also contained sev-
eral samples of that developer's
models, built around a landscaped
courtyard, full sized, decorated
and furnished, but unplumbed.
Designed solely to present realisti-
cally the former builder's exterior
architectural and interior design
features, the models were not in-
tended for habitation and are not
included in the lease arrangement
with Minto, Bullock said. They
remain empty and shuttered on
the back side of the enclosed sales
center, he added, noting he did not


know what the final disposition of
the one-time models would be.
Another and unexpected aspect
of the early Minto development
plans also has surfaced, Bullock
added. Perceiving a certain emerg-
ing market for what is termed in
builder circles the "estate home" -
larger, more elaborate and luxuri-
ously appointed, the company has
designated early on a new section
of 21 homesites in a 90-foot front-
age width. Most homes in the com-
munity, as in similar communities,
are built on lots ranging from 35
to 50 feet wide, he said. But, on
the last sites of about double that
width, the company can offer
somewhat customized single-story
homes up to approximately 3,000
square feet in size.
"This is for the buyer who may
have seen a favorite home in
Lakewood Ranch or has a special
affinity for one of the early WCI
designs," the housing executive
asserted. Minto will try to work
with such a buyer, he indicated,
to produce to specifications the
upscale "estate home" in the new
section dubbed Calabria. Calabria,


expected to feature lakefront or
golf course sites, is to be located
next to Club Renaissance.
While the new section is not be-
ing actively pushed at the present
time, Bullock said, Minto market-


ing plans for the community as a
whole are taking shape. "Decem-
ber," he summed up, "is going to
be a great month in Sun City Cen-
ter."

Corporate branding by Minto Communities, LLC, Sun City Center's
latest and most likely last developer, is extending across the re-
tirement enclave beyond its entrance signage. The Canada-based
builder is at work on five model homes in varying sizes expected
to be ready by the holidays and is refurbishing the expansive sales
center on S.R. 674 at 1-75 for a December debut. Minto, which has
constructed homes in several upscale communities across Florida,
also is carving out a new "estate home" section as the retirement
center approaches its 50th anniversary.

and safety classes which are very
important in helping our family
members and other people in the
community."
The new center ties together ser-
vices offered by other individual
and family organizations, such as
those offered by Catholic Chari-
ties, for the first time in South
Hillsborough. Prior to this time,
services offered by other organi-
zations were scattered throughout
the area.
"We all work together here to
provide services to people and
families in the community," Ne-
gron said.
Health and safety classes are
available to all residents of South
Hillsborough through the center.
"We are providers for CPR class-
es and certification, alongside St.
Joseph Hospital," said center man-
ager Aniria Wilson. "If people are


interested in any health and safety
classes, they just need to call 813-
870-4747 to register."
There is no cost to attend classes
and there are no charges associated
with any service within the center.
"The resource center is available
to any child and any family that
resides in Hillsborough County,"
Negron added. "It is important for
people to know that all services
that we provide are absolutely free
of charge. There are no criteria for
eligibility for our services."
In addition to training and sup-
port services, the center also pro-
vides counseling services.
"We are involved in the collab-
orative with our REACH counsel-
ing program as well as our Hills-
borough Kinship Care and Parents
Partners program," said Abby
Evert, director of Family Support
Services for Catholic Charities.
"This is unique in that not many
agencies have the opportunity to
bring this many programs together
under one roof. It is a wonderful
opportunity for all of South Coun-
ty."
The programs and services of-
fered at the South County office
has been derived from input by
area families as part of the Fam-
ily Advisory Council. The bilin-
gual staff is available to work with
families on an individual basis.
The office is funded by the
Children's Board of Hillsborough
County and managed by Catholic
Charities, Diocese of St. Peters-
burg. Fiscal management is pro-
vided by the Healthy Start Coali-
tion of Hillsborough County.
Resource partners include the


Children's Home, Inc., Bright Be-
ginnings, the Child Abuse Coun-
cil, St. Joseph's Hospital Advoca-
cy Center, the Family Enrichment
Center, Mental Health Care, Inc.
and the Sylvia Thomas Center.
REACH Counseling services
are funded by the Children's
Board of Hillsborough County and
managed by Catholic Charities.
The Kinship Care and Parents as
Partners programs are funded by
the Children's Board, managed
by Catholic Charities with fiscal
management by YMCA Partners
of Hillsborough.
The South County Family Sup-
port & Resource Center is open
Monday through Thursday from
9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Friday from 9
a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 9
a.m. to 1 p.m. The center closes on
Monday from 3 to 4:30 p.m. for
staff meetings.

Delegation
I have a friend who was just elect-
ed to be president of a very large
association. She confided to me
that she was looking forward to the
challenge of
the next year
because she
could see that
many things
needed to be
done. How-
Positive ever, she did
Talk have a con-
By William Hodges cern that she
was not good
at delegating. After talking with her
further, I found it was not necessar-
ily that she wasn't good at delegation
that hindered her, but rather that she
didn't understand the steps necessary
to delegate responsibility to others. I
shared the following ideas with her.
Maybe you will find them valuable
when you are faced with asking oth-
ers to help you.
1. Be sure you have the task de-
fined. It's very difficult for someone
to take on a task if the person assign-
ing it cannot describe what the de-
sired end result will be.
2. Find the ideal person to do the
task. Once you have defined the task,
it becomes easier to identify the tal-
ents required to complete it. Match
the requirements of the task to the
talents of the person you are asking
to take on the task.
3. Present the request to the person
you have selected. Explain to this
person the unique traits or capabili-
ties they bring to this particular as-
signment. Be sure he or she under-
stands the complete ramifications
of the assignment prior to accepting
responsibility for it.
4. Review with the person who
has agreed to accept the assignment
the steps and methods that will be
needed to complete the task. Be sure
you are in agreement as to how the
project will proceed.
5. Be sure that the person assigned
the project has the appropriate tools
to complete it. It is unfair to give
someone an assignment and then fail
to provide the people, funds or equip-
ment required to make it a success.
6. Review target dates. In any proj-
ect, it is important that target dates be
set, and that progress reviews be held
on a regular basis. Establish dates for
those reviews well in advance and
then stick to the schedule.
7. Don't interfere once the assign-
ment has been accepted. If you have
done all of the above, then you must
stand back and let the person do his
or her job as you have both agreed.
8. Reward successful comple-
tion. It is important to remember,
especially in situations involving
volunteers, that a bit of praise and a
thank you may be the most valuable
paycheck you can give the person
who has helped you. It certainly will
make that person inclined to want to
help you again.
No matter how smart the individ-
ual, or how much energy he or she
has, so much more can be accom-
plished when that person learns how
to delegate responsibilities to others.
Lou Holtz, during his career at Notre
Dame, won football games not be-
cause he could block and tackle, but
because he had the ability to choose
and motivate people who could block
and tackle.

Fast Twitch: the fast track to fitness


Fast Twitch Fitness Performance,
located at Apollo Beach Racquet
and Fitness Club in Apollo Beach
and also in Tampa (near Channel-
side), is a personal training company
for all your fitness and performance
needs. Whether your goal is weight/
fat loss, strength gains, joint pain
relief, improved stamina and/or just
better overall health, Fast Twitch
Fitness Performance can help you
reach your desired objectives.
Founded by Francois Tort in Janu-
ary 2008, Fast Twitch was started to
help those that wanted to improve
their fitness through exercise but
didn't understand, and were conse-
quently frustrated with, the basics
of how to go about achieving their
goals.
Francois' passion for resistance/
weight training began when his
grandfather, Henri, bought him his
first barbell with 50 lbs of weight
for his 14th birthday.
Throughout the years, Francois
continued to practice and improve
upon his craft. At 19, he enlisted in
the Marine Corps, advancing quick-
ly through the ranks making Ser-
geant in less than 4 years. His time
in service taught him leadership,
discipline, structure and account-
ability; character traits that would
help him once he began his personal
training business. Armed with a
handful of credits he had accumu-
lated at the local community col-
lege prior to enlisting in the Corps,
Francois enrolled at the University
of South Florida in 2006 with the
objective of getting a degree that re-


lated to his passion. He graduated in
2008 with a Bachelor's in Exercise
Science.
Francois knew that having a field-
specific degree was good but it
wasn't enough. He began to study
for the National Strength and Con-
ditioning Association's Certified
Strength and Conditioning Special-
ist (NSCA-CSCS) exam, one of the
most highly sought-after and hard-
est to attain personal trainer certifi-
cations in the country. Candidates
must have at least a 4 year Bach-
elor's degree and be CPR and First
Aid certified just to apply. He took
the exam and passed the first time.
He also attained the Certified Per-
sonal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) creden-
tial from the same organization just
to have all his bases covered.
He now has over a decade and a

Swallowing problems addressed
Caregivers and individuals that experience swallowing problems after
a stroke are invited to attend a clinic from noon to 1 p.m. and 5:30 to 6:30
p.m. on Monday, Sept. 27 located at Educational Consultants Group, 150
East Bloomingdale Avenue in Brandon.
Swallowing problems may occur in up to 65 percent of individuals that
have a stroke.
The time to seek help is when you first suspect something is wrong.
If not identified and managed, it can lead to poor nutrition, pneumonia
and increased disability. It is important to be proactive at the first sign
of a problem.
If swallowing and/or eating is more difficult now than it was before the
stroke, there may be a problem. Open to the public. Seating is limited.
Call to reserve a seat. Cost is $10 which includes light snacks/refresh-
ments. For more information or to reserve a seat, call (813) 373-0016.

half of resistance training experi-
ence and roughly half as many years
of experience training others.
Francois says, "Resistance train-
ing isn't about being full of muscles.
As a matter of fact, if done correct-
ly, resistance training can cause an
individual to shrink significantly
while gaining a lean, athletic look to
the body. It's about strength, longev-
ity and quality of life. Fast Twitch
wants each individual to be physi-
cally capable to do whatever it is
they want to do for the rest of their
life. Want to look good in a bathing
suit and stay looking good? Resis-
tance training is the way to go."

Brandon Regional Hospital receives
Center of Excellence Designation
The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS)
has named Brandon Regional Hospital (BRH), together with Alfredo
Fernandez, MD, a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. The ASMBS
Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence designation is given to surgical
programs and surgeons that have demonstrated consistent favorable out-
comes in weight loss surgery. BRH is one of two hospitals in Hillsbor-
ough County to have this designation.
The mission of the BRH bariatric team, led by medical director, Dr.
Fernandez, is to provide a supportive, multi-disciplinary approach to
weight loss. The team is comprised of a surgeon, registered dietician,
registered nurses, a bariatric coordinator and other healthcare profes-
sionals, working together to ensure that all the patient's medical needs
are met and that favorable outcomes are consistently achieved.
"BRH has proven their commitment to a healthy community," explains
Fernandez. "The team's goal is to ensure positive outcomes for their pa-
tients, help ensure a healthy lifestyle and improve the patient's overall
outlook on life."
Obesity is a growing problem in the U.S. where one-third of the popu-
lation is heavier than they should be. In Florida, 57 percent of adults are
overweight or obese, as determined by the Body Mass Index, or BMI.
Bariatric surgery is not only used to reduce a person's weight but it has
proven effective in eliminating or significantly reducing many medical
conditions such as Type II Diabetes, lower blood pressure, lower choles-
terol, and sleep apnea and acid reflux may be resolved.
The realization of the health benefits, as well as the weight loss ben-
efits of bariatric surgery, has brought a significant rise in the number of
bariatric surgeries being performed nationwide. Fernandez encourages
people to research their physicians and hospitals so they can make an
informed decision about who should perform the surgery and where it
should be performed.
The ASMBS is very important in this research. The group was estab-
lished to assist patients in identifying centers that are the most experi-
enced with the lowest rates of complications, offer comprehensive pro-
grams and offer patients support following surgery.
Surgical procedures performed by at BRH by Dr. Fernandez include:
the Laparoscopic adjustable band (Lap-Band), Laparoscopic Gastric By-
pass Roux-en Y and the Sleeve Gastrectomy.
For more information on BRH's Bariatric Program or to register for an
informational session, call (813) 653-1065.

Knights of
Columbus annual
Charity Golf
Tournament
You are cordially invited to play
in the 2010 District 35 Knights of
Columbus Golf Tournament on
Saturday, Oct. 9.
This year's
tournament will
be benefiting
Tim Manning.
Tim is a wid-
owed dad of
three. Due to the
relocation of the
Smithfield Foods Inc. Tim is both
unemployed and uninsured.
Tim developed a serious foot
infection, which worsened to the
point that gangrene set in and the
infection was antibiotic resistant,
with diabetics complicating this.
After several surgeries he stopped
eating and his kidneys failed. This
resulted in dialysis every other day
for several hours. The result of the
surgeries was that Tim lost all of
his toes on his right foot.
Tim's medical bills currently
exceed $250,000. The goal is to
pay a good portion of this amount
with tournament proceeds.
The tournament will be held at
Summerfield Crossings Golf Club.
Tickets may be purchased by call-
ing, Fran Nason at (813) 641-9109
or Dave Carter at (813) 361-4494.
If you or your company would
like to sponsor any part of this
event, call the numbers above.

Red Hatters
decorated bras
Hawaiian Isles Red Hat groups
decorated bras for cancer cures.
These bras were given to the Rat
Pack Corvette Club for use at their
Corvette car show this past week-
end at Little Harbor in Ruskin.
Most of the bras were decorated
in honor or memory of someone
that had or has breast cancer. It
was a great project for the Red Hat
group and a way for the Rat Pack
to make money for breast cancer.

So many of the women in Mira-

are interesting, said Jane Margu-

Bay Cookbook that's being sold

The profits from the cookbook
go for community projects, they
explained. Like two years ago,
when they made enough to pro-


vide matching funds for the Apollo

fill local food pantries, donate and
volunteer at the Dress for Success

"Almost everybody who moves
to this community comes from
somewhere else," Renate said.
"They can have instant friends by
becoming one of our group."
The women perform tasks for
each other; like watering plants
and pet-sitting when another has to
leave town. And they are always on
hand for emergencies.
"We take food to people who have
just come home from the hospital,
and sometimes line up meals for
several months for someone with a
long illness or who is in recovery,"
Mari said.
Most of the women range in age
from their 40s to their 70s but some
are younger and others are older
than that, Renate said.
Karen said she was glad to be
part of a group that is like family.
N Il husband likes going to plays
and I don't. So he went to a play
with some of the others and I went
fishing with a friend. We are all
comfortable with that. Nobody is
uncomfortable going places with
members of the group."
Next month the women have a
wine making planned. "We may
even create our own label," Jane
said. 'The events are always origi-
nal like that. One subgroup had a
cruise for bridge players. And once
there was a murder mystery din-
ner."
They're also collecting cell
phones for soldiers and are always
ready to help out in emergencies by
hosting dinners or at least bringing
food to memorial services or funer-
als.
"We put out all-points bulletins
if someone needs to borrow some-
thing too, like if a grandchild is
coming for a visit, we'll ask who
has a high chair or crib and every-
body shares what the others need.
One of our friend's husbands had a
stroke and was in the hospital for
six months. When he was brought
home, we had made dozens of
'welcome home' signs and posted
them all over his front yard," Karen
said. "It made him feel missed, and

Wanted in Tampa: Romance


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
There is no romance in Tampa.
There is a ton of romance in cities
like San Francisco and New York.
In New York, people in
love can meet (or, tragi-
cally, not meet) at the top V
of the Empire State Build-
ing. In New York, people It
in love and lust can meet
at the Chelsea Hotel; and
then memorialize their li- Obse
aison through word and By Mitc
song. San Francisco, of mitch@ot
course, is a good place to
leave your heart and a gen-
eration of dreamy young girls heard
the mournful call to "please come
to Denver". Even Memphis has a
romantic appeal. It seems people
have walked in Memphis with their
feet "ten feet off of Beale" Street
and Daisy Jane was left there to


rv
h
bse


roam the city before her love re-
turned when the summer was gone.
And everyone knows that if you are
losing your love you simply need to
ask them to meet you in Memphis.
K But Tampa? What is
in Tampa? Please come
to the giant IKEA store
near Ybor? Meet me
"AOP at the Steak and Shake
in Brandon? We need
S some romance here.
rations We need something
Traphagen that isn't a well-in-
rvernews.net tentioned developer's
generic concept of
charming! We need a
Chelsea Hotel, a Beale Street, or a
place to leave our hearts in the fog
next to a bay. Oh, wait. We already
have that last one occasionally. But
it doesn't seem we have much else.
Somehow in our frantic quest to
choose from a hundred different va-


rieties of breakfast cereal, we have
missed the basics; the stuff that is
really important. Stuff like love and
passion and the occasional small
extravagance. Maybe it's just me.
Maybe I'm the one missing it.
A short time ago, I decided to take
a trip back into time. I checked into
a room at Little Harbor Resort a
place that holds many special, hap-
py, and yes, romantic, memories for
me. My wife and I lived for eight
years on a sailboat at the nearby
marina and we spent many happy
hours with close friends at the Cap-
tain's Quarters and at the restaurant.
Our boat lacked a bathtub and ev-
ery year we splurged for a special
evening on Michelle's birthday. We
checked into a room so she could
plunge into a common tub, com-
plete with bubbles.
Checking in alone last month gave
me the opportunity to see the place
as it is in my memories. I wasn't
disappointed. In my solitude, my
eyes were opened to things I might
otherwise have missed. I saw cou-
ples, both young and old, walking
hand-in-hand down the quiet streets
and down the pier. I saw families
with children laughing and playing


with the abandon that only children
seem blessed to possess. I said to
myself, "1 remember when we were
right there...". I saw the ghosts of
my friends most still with us but
some now departed. I felt what I felt
then and was happy. Being able to
feel those feelings again was a gift
for which I was most grateful. As
an added bonus, I discovered that I
could take a vacation without leav-
ing my own town, something the
hotel desk clerk remarked upon
while I checked in. 'You didn't
have to travel far," she said.
Perhaps part of the problem is that
I'm reveling in the past and am not
seeing the memories that are being
made today. Perhaps I'm failing to
appreciate until after the fact that,
despite all of the bad stuff going
on in the world, I'm not seeing the
good stuff in real-time. I'm wait-
ing for the reruns and the instant
replays to determine what is and
is not stored forever in my heart.
Perhaps I'm just not living in the
present.
Nah, I'm OK with the present.
In fact, more and more I am begin-
ning to really enjoy the present. As
I get older, my muscles hurt and


my short-term memory isn't quite
so sharp, but I can feel things that
I never even imagined as a younger
man. I can feel art, music and my
wife's touch on my hand in ways
that I never before imagined. To
me, that is certainly a huge benefit
of getting older. In fact, it makes
getting older worthwhile.
What I really want is an Empire
State Building in Tampa. I want to
walk with my feet ten feet off of
Beale and have a romantic liaison at
the Chelsea Hotel (as awesome as
the gigantic IKEA in Ybor City is, I
don't want to have to plan a roman-
tic liaison with Michelle there). Do
I sound like an adolescent looking
for a place to make out? I'm not -
adolescents can't afford the Chelsea
Hotel!
In thinking about it, though, Little
Harbor will do just fine. I'm OK
asking Michelle to meet me at the
Sunset Grill, because once the sun
begins to set and we sit together
watching another day in paradise
coming to an end, it will just be the
two of us anyway no matter how
many people are in the restaurant.
It seems that romance in Tampa is
where the heart is.


Postcards Mitch Traphagen Photo
The Tampa-St. Petersburg-Clearwater Metropolitan area is a big place.
Believe it or not, despite the seemingly random pastoral evidence other-
wise, South Hillsborough is part of a metro area of more than 2.7 million
people. But you know we still have the small town atmosphere when
people can not only identify a house on Bayshore Blvd. in Tampa but
they also know who lives in it. OK, so it wasn't just any ol' house but
still... Kathleen Baldwin (You're welcome! Thanks for the note! And give
'em a big Woof!) got it, as did Donna McClister (thanks for the note!),
Mack Womack (Nice place, huh? Thanks for writing!), Deborah White
(Mmm! Muffins! Thanks for the tip!), Edward Socha (Thanks for the note,
Commander! You are right about that horse, I think!), Robin Greenwood
(Thanks see you on Oct. 2!), Sharon Gardner, and Jayne Kirse (Wow!
I'm impressed! I like the title, Equinimity, too!). I love getting mail. Email,
of course, is easiest and the most efficient but it is so amazing to get
an actual letter these days. The hand-written word is something to be-
hold. Michael Oney (thank you for the wonderful letter and for the
tips!) identified the Rod 'n Reel Pier on Anna Maria two weeks ago as
did Gladi King (thank you so much for writing!). This week we have yet
another great reason to live in the Tampa Bay area. Worried about your
quiet picnic plans being spoiled by a group of rowdies? Worry no more,
this bad boy is at the ready. And that, folks, is as far as I'm willing to go
with the joke. The truth is this is a very cool, out of the way place that
everyone should visit. We certainly owe a debt of gratitude to the men
and women to which this place is dedicated. Where are we? Send your
best guess to where@observernews.net or mail to 210 Woodland Es-
tates Blvd., Ruskin, FL, 33570.


Mitcn Irapnagen Pnoto
Tampa needs an Empire State Building. However, my track record in meeting at the top follows that of Cary
Grant's. My wife was delayed at the airport, and our planned romantic midnight meeting ended in her being
angry with the shuttle company and me spending a few hours in front of the building with two non-English-
speaking Korean guys and a woman who might have been a prostitute.

Saturation was anxious-
Point ly awaiting

By Karey Burek Bow Falls.
Ben and I ar-
rived on time and we all got suited
up for our relaxing ride down Spray
River.
Bow Falls is a huge draw for tour-
ists visiting Banff in Alberta, Can-


ada. Not only are there trails that
take you up and around the falls,
but there are float trips that tour
the quiet waters at the base of the
mountains. The falls themselves
are impressive and beckon the ad-
venturer to take a tube or kayak
over the edge into the calm waters
below.
As we headed down the river, the
thunderous sound of the pounding
water from the falls subsided. Our
guide Spencer pointed out different
types of trees and gave us back-
ground on how certain mountains
have eroded over time, creating
what looked like scars down the
sides. There were unusual forma-

BOWIE is a grey tabby, like his brother. There isn't a volunteer who
can pass by his bed without some cuddle time. He is very high on the cute
scale and exploding with the energy of a young cat. Bowie shares a mom,
Lillie, with his brother Hobart. She is proud of her offspring and would like
nothing better than to say bon voyage as they go to a loving forever home.
Bowie is neutered and up-to-date on his shots. He is already micro chipped
Chip #054-004-283. Bowie is on summer special for 50 percent off.

BUDDY is a Shar Pei mix. He came to the shelter underweight and
with no hair. Poor baby! He is now a handsome, funny, and playful boy. He
enjoys the doggy pool, playing ball, and exploring. Buddy also has many
furry friends. He would do best with a dog savvy and active owner. Buddy's
adoption comes with free training from Bark Busters so that he gets off on
the right foot in his forever home. He is microchipped, up-to-date on his
shots and neutered. Buddy was born in March of 2009.

for rock climbers. Because the
Hoodoos are formed from erosion,
they are always changing making
them look like shape shifters on the
horizon. Our guide explained that
there is rich culture behind the sto-
ries of the Hoodoo and how they re-
ally came to sit high above the river.
Some legends have written that the
Hoodoos are the wives of fallen


warriors waiting for them to come
home and yet others tell tales of the
Hoodoos watching over the river
and the mountains for Mother Na-
ture. The one thing that the Hoodoo
legends and tales have in common
are that they are beautiful works of
art, created by nature from the ele-
ments of wind and water.

The College Board's Advanced
Placement Program (AP) pro-
vides motivated and academically
prepared students with the oppor-
tunity to take rigorous college-
level courses while still in high
school, and to earn college credit,
advanced placement, or both for
successful performance on the AP
Exams. About 18 percent of the
nearly 1.7 million students world-
wide who took AP Exams per-
formed at a sufficiently high level
to also earn an AP Scholar Award.
The College Board recognizes
several levels of achievement
based on students' performance on
AP Exams.
At Lennard High School,
Marcus Featherston qualified for
the National AP Scholar Award by
earning an average grade of 4 or
higher on a five-point scale on all
AP Exams taken, and grade of 4 or
higher on eight or more of these
exams.
Marcus Featherston and Donna
Guajardo qualified for the AP
Scholar with Distinction Award
by earning an average grade of at
least 3.5 on all AP Exams taken,
and grade of 3 or higher on five or
more of these exams.
Xiaodong Lu and Jeanine Tatlock

qualified for the AP Scholar with
Honor Award by earning an aver-
age grade of at least 3.25 on all
AP Exams taken, and grades of 3
or higher on four or more of these
exams.
Fourteen students qualified for
the AP Scholar Award by com-
pleting three or more AP Exams
with grades of 3 or higher. The
AP Scholars were Erich Anderson,
Ana Barrios, Kevin Beckwith,
Manuel Cisneros, Julian Couture,
Anjanette Flores, Wesley Hegarty,
Aaron Hodge, Diana Jardines,
Catherine Korman, Ashley
Leonard, Olivia Martin, Stephen
Scrivener, and Sarah Zipperer.
Six recipients at Lennard High
School were sophomores or ju-
niors: Erich Anderson, Julian
Couture, Diana Jardines, Olivia
Martin, Xiaodong Lu, and Jean-
ine Tatlock. These students have
at least one more year in which to
complete college-level work and
possibly earn a higher-level AP
Scholar Award.
Through more than 30 different
college-level courses and exams,
AP provides motivated and aca-
demically prepared students with
the opportunity to earn college
credit or advanced placement and

stand out in the college admissions
process. Each exam is developed
by a committee of college and uni-
versity faculty and AP teachers,
ensuring that AP exams are aligned
with the same high standards ex-
pected by college faculty at some
of the nation's leading liberal arts
and research institutions.
More than 3,600 colleges and
universities annually receive AP
grades. Over 90 percent of four-
year colleges in the United States
provide credit and/or placement
for qualifying exam grades. Re-
search consistently shows that AP
students who score a 3 or higher on
AP Exams (based on a scale from
to 5, with 5 being the higher) typi-
cally experience greater academic
success in college and higher grad-
uation rates than students who did
not participate in AP.
The College Board is a not-for-
profit membership organization
whose mission is to connect stu-
dents to college success and op-
portunity. Founded in 1900, the
association is comprised of more
than 5,600 schools, college, uni-
versities, and other educational
organizations. Each year, the Col-
lege Board serves seven million
students and their parents, 23,000
high schools, and 3,800 colleges
through major programs and ser-
vices in college readiness, college
admissions, guidance, assessment,
financial aid, enrollment, and
teaching and learning.


East Bay Theater Dept.
lists upcoming events


Help celebrate the start of

son at East Bay High School.
The first production of the year

laugh-out-loud story takes place
in 1980s New York City where
two very different friends be-
come roommates.
Show dates are at 7:30 p.m.
on Oct. 7-9 at East Bay High
School. Call 671-5134, ext. 271
to make a reservation or you
may purchase tickets at the door.

for students and include dessert
and coffee during intermission.
The East Bay Theatre Depart-


ment has a spectacular season
planned starting with The Odd
Couple (Female Version) in
October. A family holiday pro-
duction, The Best Christmas
Pageant Ever will be presented
on Dec. 9-11.
The spring musical Grease
will be presented May 12-14.
The annual Middle School Mad-
ness festival in its 4th year will
take place in February and will
be made available to all Eisen-
hower Middle School 8th grade
students.
In addition to the mainstage
productions, the EBHS Moving
Minds Theatre Co. will be pre-
senting children's theatre free

Obituaries


Elizabeth Betty Heininger
Elizabeth (Betty) Heininger passed
away on Friday, August 13. She was
born and raised in Scranton, PA.
Her parents were John Holland and
Elizabeth Miller Llewellyn. While
growing up in Scranton, Betty was
active in the Westminster Presbyterian
Church, participating in the choir,
Girl Scouts, and Sunday School. She
taught physical education for a year
before attending Sargent College in
Cambridge, MA.
Betty left college after two years to
marry Bo, a Navy Ensign. She spent
20 years as a Navy wife, raising three
daughters from New London, CT to
Iwakuni, Japan. Along the way she
volunteered as a Brownie and Girl
Scout leader, and with Gray Ladies
and Navy Wives. While in Japan she
learned to play her favorite sport of
golf and helped run the Officers' Wives'
Club Charities. She was a popular
substitute PE teacher at McLean High
School in Virginia during the Sixties
and was a member of the Daughters of
the American Revolution.
After Bo retired from the Navy and
joined IBM, Betty lived in NY, MD
and VA, where she was active in
garden clubs and volunteering for the
Republican Party. She was especially
proud of her volunteer work addressing
Christmas cards for the White House.


When Bo retired from IBM in 1984,
they moved to Sun City Center, FL.
While here, Betty was very active with
the Flower Arrangers and Caloosa
Golf & Country Club. She served as a
Caloosa director in charge of Activities
for 4 years, and was known for her
creative centerpieces and fashion show
modeling. Besides golf and gardening,
she especially enjoyed their frequent
trips to the Naval Academy for reunions
and keeping in touch with friends
through her famous letters.
She is survived by her husband,
H. G. "Bo" Heininger, her daughters,
Barbara Mitchell and husband, Phillip,
of Juneau, AK, Suzanne Janss and
husband, Brad, of Brandon, FL, Joanne
Heininger of Arlington, VA, and her four
grandchildren, Christopher Anderson

Artist 'shoots' animals before painting


MBy PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews. net
They say a picture is worth a
thousand words. Well, in Hettie
Donahue's case, they're worth even
more than that. Photographs are
what enable her to make her por-


traits so lifelike.
First, Hettie photo-
graphs her subject, or as
we say in the newspaper
business, 'shoots' it with
her camera. Then, she
studies the photograph
closely, to come up with
the essence of her sub-
ject, whether it is human
or animal.
People also present
her with photographs to
paint from.


ished portraits.
After the Twin Towers bombing
Sept. 11, 2001, Hettie painted a
photograph of the New York City
skyline, including the smoking tow-
ers, with a large American eagle in
the foreground.

Sometimes, the photographs are
very old and in black and white or
sepia, and she develops new color
portraits from them using oils or
pastel, whichever is requested.
Although she paints humans, Het-
tie says her favorite subject is ani-
mals, especially tigers.
Animal's eyes tell as much about
their personality as human's eyes
do, she said.
'The character always shows
through the eyes," she told me Sept.
17 as we sat looking at her work in
her sunroom-turned-art-studio. "I
begin with the eyes because they're
the windows of the soul."
Her walls are lined with portraits
she has painted of family members,
children, and people and objects
she has found fascinating. She also
has albums that contain pictures of
the original photographs she has
painted from lying beside her fin-


"It just came to me,"
she said. "I painted what
the news brought to my
mind."
Other paintings are less
serious: wide-eyed young
girls; families holding
hands; outdoor scenes;
but mostly, animals- dogs,
house cats, horses and es-
pecially tigers.
A former dental assis-
tant, Hettie moved to the


area in 1988 from the suburbs of
Philadelphia, Penn. with her hus-
band John who died in 2006.
Although she has painted all her
life, she says she got serious with
her art after moving to Kings Point
and becoming involved in the Art
Club. She has since won numerous
ribbons and awards, especially for
her work with oil paintings of chil-
dren and animals.
She takes classes as well as gives
them.
She teaches animal portrait paint-
ing at the Kings Point Clubhouse
every Friday from 1-to-3 p.m. and
says you do not have to be a mem-
ber of any club to take a class.
"People give portraits of their
families and pets as gifts and I get
really backed up around the holi-
days. I can't do paintings at the last
minute anymore. I like to take my
time and not push so they come out
just right," she told me.


Penny Fletcher Photo
Hettie Donahue of Kings Point
in Sun City Center takes her
portrait painting seriously, usu-
ally working from photographs
she is given or takes herself.

But Hettie doesn't spend all her
time at her easel. Besides paint-
ing, she does volunteer work and
sings in the choir at Trinity Bap-
tist Church in Sun City Center and
works as a volunteer at the woman's
prison on State Road 672 in Riv-
erview Hillsborough Correctional
Institution- as a mentor. "Most of
the women incarcerated there aren't
violent, they've just made mistakes,
especially concerning drugs and al-
cohol," she told me. "They have
such good programs there. Real re-
habilitation. It isn't like places they
just send people to sit and wait to
get out.
"The Lord has given me some tal-
ents and I want to use them to serve
him in every way I can," she said.

to commission her to do a portrait,

Postal changes Continued from page 1


Post Office, on Boyette Road imme-
diately east of U.S. 301, according
to Gary Sawtelle, USPS spokesman
in Tampa. The change affects a total
of 4,262 Gibsonton deliveries, he
added.
This consolidation also establishes
the Riverview facility as one of the
two South County hubs from which
all mail routes eventually will be
run, Sawtelle indicated.
The second designated hub is the
Sun City Center post office. Not only
does mail delivery throughout the
retirement community begin at the
facility just west of the SCC Plaza
, but all carrier deliveries to Apollo
Beach, Ruskin and Sun City south
of the Little Manatee River have
been operating from the larger sta-
tion for some time, Sawtelle said.
And, in the "near future," all of the
greater Wimauma routes, including
those serving Balm to the northeast
and Sundance to the south, also will
originate in Sun City Center, round-
ing its role as the second hub, he
added.
However, none of the changes
should seriously impact postal
customers receiving mail by route
delivery. "These are backed func-
tions" not obvious at the front or
retail postal service end, Sawtelle
emphasized. Asked if the timing of
route mail delivery could be affect-
ed since carriers in some cases will
be traveling greater distances from
mail pick-up points to their specific
routes, the spokesman acknowl-
edged "there will be some changes
in the delivery times, but we expect
that those will be minimal."
The consolidation of delivery ser-
vices is designed to cut back on the
transportation costs involved in get-
ting mail in bulk to the various post
offices, including those from which
carrier deliveries then spread out
across the several separate commu-
nities. Ultimately, the new system

distribution hubs for South Hillsborough County.


envisions that all South County mail
can be unloaded in bulk at just the
two hubs, Sawtelle said.
The Riverview and Sun City Cen-
ter post offices were pinpointed as
hubs because of their locations and
sizes, the spokesman noted, indi-
cating that the facilities more eas-
ily can accommodate the increased
activities of more mail processing
along with the more numerous car-
rier arrivals and departures.
As the new carrier route details
are being worked out, though, re-
tail activities at the South County's
various post offices continue unaf-
fected, Sawtelle asserted. All of the
services normally expected by post
office customers at their local sta-
tions from stamp purchases to cer-
tified mail management to package
handling including such purchase
options as packaging materials and
stamp collector accessories re-
main available.
In addition, there are no plans to
close any South County stations,
Sawtelle emphasized. The existing
post offices Apollo Beach, Balm,


Gibsonton, Riverview, Ruskin, Sun
City, Sun City Center and Wimau-
ma all are expected to continue
operations as usual. And customers
receiving mail via route delivery
who might receive a notice of pack-
age pick-up will continue to get that
service at their local post office,
Sawtelle noted.
The cost cutting consolidation is
the direct result of a couple of major
factors; one of them a radical drop
in mail volume, Sawtelle pointed
out. The U.S. Postal Service and
its post offices are supposed to be
supported by the rate payers, the
customers who pay for services,
the spokesman said. Since 2006,
he added, the number of pieces of
mail going through the system has
dropped by 30 billion, thereby re-
sulting in a marked loss in revenues.
Yet, he concluded, the postal ser-
vice fixed costs have not decreased
and demands for delivery have in-
creased, leading to such actions as
postage increases and blending of
services.

The Pinwheels for Peace project is coordinated
by Apollo Beach Elementary art teacher Margit
Redlawsk. "This is the third year that Apollo
Beach has participated in this event," Redlawsk
said. "Every student made a pinwheel during
art class as a symbol of their wish for peace in
our school, community and world. They learned
that tolerance is an important part of building
character and good citizenship. Accepting
differences in others is a step towards having
peace." Tuesday was the International Day of
Peace and Pinwheels for Peace, the brainchild
of Florida art teachers Ann Ayers and Ellen
McMillan, is now a world-wide event. It is
estimated that worldwide, more than three
million pinwheels were planted on Tuesday. For

IMPORTANT NOTICE:
If you are purchasing a new air conditioning system that qualifies for
the Florida Energy Rebate make sure the company you choose is going
to take care of the required load calculations and testing of your duct
system. Many AC companies are leaving it up to the customer to pay
for the required tests. This is a cost of $300-$500 per test, if it fails the
first time another full price test will be required. At Apollo Beach Air the
required load calculation and duct test is included with the purchase
of your qualifying air conditioning system. You may still need to pay a
rater to certify your duct system as required by the state but they will
already have been tested and you'll know that they will pass before
incurring that expense.

An icon comes to Florida. Let it be.


Iconic artist Peter Max will appear at
Baywalk in St. Petersburg this
weekend.
He talks about being free, successful,
and an Average Joe with a full-time DJ.

blessed with sight, he has given 1l-
or to memories. Memories from
the 60s and beyond that may
otherwise be fading, or even
monochromatic, are filled with color because Peter Max put
his brush to canvas.
If the Beatles provided the soundtrack for a generation,
Peter Max provided the Technicolor. The dawning of the
Age of Aquarius would have been much less bright without
his cosmic interpretation of the spirit of the culture in the

late 60s. He is so entwined with that era that it is impossible
to know if he painted the fashions of the day or if the fash-
ions merely imitated his paintings.
Born in Germany and a child of the world, he is unabash-
edly American. In conversation, he is open and honest. He
does not feign an unrealistic depth that the public often
expects of artists. He is both a dreamer
and a realist, easily switching gears from
talking about the infinities of space to
giving instructions to his staff on a let-
ter of intent for an upcoming project. He
is not arrogant but he knows that he has
reached a pinnacle of success that few
people can imagine. He is not embar-
rassed by it.
In some respects, Peter Max can only
come from New York. Like him, the city
is famous and infinitely prolific. And,
like him, it is all about accomplishment
and execution.
New York is a city that can be any-
thing to anyone. It is a place where the
homeless sleep undisturbed among the
arbitrage traders, where 80-year-old la-
dies with canes hail cabs on Central Park
West, where a person can come from
nothing to be something but only if they
really had something such as talent to

York. He talks about his passion for saving animals from
abuse and for human rights and his lifelong fascination with
astronomy. He is among the most open and accessible celeb-
rities in America, yet it is the art and the 60s and the Boeing
777 jet that he painted a few years ago that has garnered at-
tention rather than intimate secrets of his private life. Even
there, he is open, having been quoted in an Illinois blog de-
scribing his wife Mary as his muse. According to the article,
his voice changed from that of a septuagenarian to that of a
teenager when speaking of when they first met.
He describes himself as just "an average Joe." He has cap-
tured the spirit of an entire generation and has redefined the
world of art. He has painted six presidents, from Ford to
Obama, and has designed a U.S. postage stamp. He has been
the official artist for events from the Grammy Awards to the
Super Bowl and has made millions of dollars in the process.
Despite, or, perhaps because of, all of that, it turns out that
he really is an average Joe in the most important respects.
"I'm not wowed by it or thinking about it every day," Max
said of his success. "I'mjust the average Joe. When a couple
of my buddies go out and we get some Chinese or vegan
food I'm a vegetarian we're just going out together.
It's not like I've got a pad under my arm and I'm going to
draw on a piece of paper on the table while all my friends
watch, I'mjust a regular guy with my buddies. But when it's
time to paint, two things happen: The paints get uncovered,
the brushes are there and I have a full-time DJ that plays
music for me."

UF discovers house flies carrying five new illness-causing bacteria


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Every-
one knows that house flies aren't
welcome around food.
But University of Florida scien-
tists have discovered five new rea-
sons why.
Researchers with UF's Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
have documented five more bacte-
ria species carried by house flies,
and all of them cause illness in hu-
mans, ranging from food poison-
ing to respiratory infections.
In the current issue of Florida
T,,i. .1.. ,4/. the researchers de-
scribe collecting house flies near
rear entrances and trash bins at
four restaurants in Gainesville.
About 20 flies from each location
were collected in sterile containers
and returned to the campus labora-
tory.
The team used fatty acid analy-
sis and DNA sequencing to iden-
tify a total of 11 pathogens car-
ried by the flies five of them not
previously linked to house flies:
Acinetobacter baumanni, Bacillus
pumilus, Cronobacter sakazakii,
Methylobacterium persicinum and
Staphylococcus sciuri.
The findings reinforce the notion
that fly control is key, especially
around food sources, said UF's
Jerry Butler, a retired entomol-
ogy professor who led the research
team.
"People need to know that there's
a reason for health requirements in
restaurants,"he said. "Most people
have a good immune response, but
there are those who are suscepti-
ble." They include infants, seniors
and people whose immune sys-
tems are compromised by illness
or chemotherapy.
Fly control is a day-to-day battle
because the insects are so mobile,
traveling up to 10 miles in just a
couple days' time, Butler said.


Until this study, house flies were
known to carry some 200 bacteria.
But both Butler and researcher Jim
Maruniak, a UF associate profes-
sor of insect pathology, said they
expect additional research would
turn up even more.
"It just shows you don't need
a lot of flies to contaminate food
sources," Maruniak said.
In addition to the 11 bacteria
documented in the study, there
were five others that could not be
positively identified, researchers
said.
House flies' feeding preferences
are particularly troublesome for
humans because the insects are at-
tracted to decaying plant and ani-
mal matter materials often found
in garbage and animal waste.
"If it smells good to them, we
probably want to hide it," Butler
said.
House flies must liquefy food be-
fore ingesting it, by placing spongy
mouthparts on the food source and
secreting saliva or regurgitated gut


contents onto it.
The pathogens that can hurt hu-
mans are spread by flies through
the food-liquefying process, or by
defecation.
Pest control company Orkin
funded the study. Alejandra Gar-
cia-Maruniak, a UF senior bio-
logical scientist, and Frank Meek
of Orkin completed the research
team.
Meek, the company's interna-
tional technical and training di-
rector, said his company wanted
updated research to stress the im-
portance of fly control in restau-
rants and kitchens.
"Most people simply wave a fly
away and go back to eating, but a
cockroach crawling across the ta-
ble elicits a very different reaction
in a restaurant," Meek said. "How-
ever, our research shows that the
housefly carries potentially twice
as many pathogens as a cockroach.
We think it's important to educate
our customers and the public about
the health risks pests can pose."

five species never associated with flies before.


Beneficial weather conditions bring abundant Florida blue crab harvest


Top producers in Florida expect
this to be an above-average year for
blue crab, thanks to plentiful rain-
fall.
"Our fishermen tell us that blue
crabs are running larger than nor-
mal and are in excellent supply,"
Florida Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson said. "Blue
crab populations tend to dip dur-
ing drought years, but they rebound
when the rains return. Ample rain-
fall this spring and summer means
there's been plenty of fresh water
flowing into our bays and estuaries,
creating ideal conditions for this
prized species."
Blue crabs are commercially har-
vested with baited traps along the


coasts, in bays, sounds, channels,
and river mouths. With an annual
dockside value of around $6 million,
blue crab is one of Florida's top 10
seafood products. It ranks fourth in
terms of pounds harvested.
The blue crab (Callinectes sapi-
dus) has a dark green or olive green
hard shell and five pairs of bright
blue legs. The undersides of the
body and legs are white. Only the
first pair of legs is equipped with
pincers or claws. Male and female
claws are various shades of blue on
the top, but the tips of the female's
claws are bright red.
Blue crab is harvested and eaten
in two stages of its lifecycle, when
the exoskeleton is hard and also


when it's soft. The soft-shell blue
crab is a hard-shell crab that has
shed its shell by molting. "Peeler"
crabs (crabs in the process of molt-
ing) are held in water-filled tanks
and watched closely until they form
their soft shells and shed their hard
ones. Then they are plucked out of
the tanks and rushed to market. Soft-
shell crabs are considered a delicacy
and can be eaten shell and all.
Hard-shell crabs are sold live or
steamed to restaurants and seafood
markets. They are also sold to pick-
ing houses, where the delicate meat
is extracted from the shell, usually
by hand. Picked crab meat is avail-
able fresh or pasteurized.
Live blue crabs should have some


leg movement when purchased.
Store them in a moist environment
at 50 degrees Fahrenheit in a bag,
cardboard box, or other breathable
container. Do not store them di-
rectly on ice. Pasteurized blue crab
meat in unopened containers can be
stored up to six months in the cold-
est part of the refrigerator. Once
opened, pasteurized crab meat
needs to be used within three days.
Sweet, creamy blue crab is high
in protein and low in fat. It contains
calcium, iron, and vitamins as well
as omega-3 fatty acids, which con-
tribute to heart health.

Rage and Grief, Inside and Out
by Nancy Porter-Thai
Noth-
ing sears
the soul like a
heart that is broken. In
a lifetime, we expect to have
losses. Many of them afford the
challenges we need to mold character and
give us wisdom, while others tear a piece from
our heart leaving a permanent wound. In that painful
place of no sunlit tomorrows, it is difficult to find a moment
of solace or a memory that once gave joy. Life becomes tedious,
erroneous, and painstakingly mundane. Perplexing questions of "why"
begin to torment our minds and we think peace has forever, eluded us.
Belief in life as it once was is shattered. Human fragility wrenches the
very depth of our being.
At the time of great loss, anger often whelms us, but sorrow keeps
our wrath distanced so that it's not recognizable to ourselves or others.
Deep inside we rage at the cause of our pain, but processing our grief in
a socially acceptable manner is safer than lashing out at the injustices of
life and/or God. As a culture, we shun demanding, or cajoling questions
and answers. We keep our rage in check by reassigning it to mourning
and grieving.
Tragedies are a part of life. We all suffer broken hearts as we
travel our life's path. Often those who have broken our hearts
are oblivious they didn't mean to hurt us but they did. We
lose jobs, friends, pets, and sometimes ourselves, but the
human spirit survives. Instinctively, we go on.
We know how our own hearts feel when broken,
but none of us can know the depths of anoth-
er's pain. We can talk about it and guess,
empathize and sympathize, but we can-
not live in another's heart. Each of
us, in our own way, must mend
our broken hearts with the rem-
nants of loving memories
and. .............. ... .
time.

Riverview Little Theater presents
the Broadway play, 'Chicago'


In roaring twenties Chicago,
chorine Roxie Hart murders a
faithless lover and convinces her
hapless husband Amos to take the
rap...until he finds out he's been
duped and turns on Roxie. Con-
victed and sent to death row, Rox-
ie and another "Merry Murderess"
Velma Kelly, vie for the spotlight
and the headlines, ultimately join-
ing forces in search of the "Ameri-
can Dream": fame, fortune and
acquittal. This sharp edged sat-
ire features a dazzling score that
sparked immortal staging by Bob
Fosse.
Premiering in 1975 and the hit
of the 1997 Broadway season in a
production that originated at City
Center's Encore! series, Chicago
won six Tony Awards including
Best Revival and later the Acad-
emy Award as Best Picture of the
Year.


Now, Chicago opens Thursday,
Sept. 30, at the Riverview High
School Auditorium for eight per-
formances.
Produced by Riverview Little
Theater, a community theatre out-
reach of Riverview High School
Theatre Department, Chicago is
directed by Daron Hawkins, musi-
cally directed by G. Frank Meek-
ins and produced by Omar Montes.
Tickets are $15 general admission,
$10 for seniors and students and

What's happening during the Big Draw?


Perhaps the most exciting event
will be an evening presentation
(time TBA) at the HCC South
Shore campus on Oct. 11 by the au-
thor and illustrator David Macaul-
ay, who did The Way Things Work,
Castle, and the recently completed
The Way We Work, about the hu-
man body. Macaulay is a nationally
acclaimed artist, a Caldecott Award
winner, and was recently given a
MacArthur "Genius" grant in rec-
ognition and support of his work.
On October 12, Macaulay will give
workshops to Beth Shields Middle
School eighth graders. This activ-
ity has been made possible by a
Target grant and by matching funds
from the Community Foundation of
Greater Sun City Center.
The Big Draw Committee is seek-
ing several artists in temporary paid
positions to work with Shields Mid-
dle School students for a few hours


in the week or two after Macaulay's
visit. Language Arts teachers will
work with and host these artists in
their classes during the school day,
as Shields currently has no art pro-
gram.
The Big Draw Studio will host
an Adult Beginning Drawing class
instructed by artist Ariel Barron-
Robins. Artist Michael Parker has
volunteered to work with teens
during the month, and he will lead
some Community Project focus
group sessions defining the pos-
sibilities for artistic expressions
exploring a sense of place. After
school children's classes will be
given by Tim Delgado, Assistant
Principal of Wimauma Elementary
and Margit Redlawsk, Art teacher at
Apollo Beach Elementary. A Plein
Aire Drawing session will be led by
Bruce Marsh at the Ruskin Wom-
an's Club on Oct. 2. Cory Wright
will lead a Chalk Drawing session
on the patio at the South Shore Re-
gional Library on Oct.24 and many
classes, sponsored by the Crawford
Studio, will be held at the Library
to celebrate the Big Draw, includ-
ing the Big Picture Kickoff Party
on Sept. 26, Adult Collage, Teen
Cartooning, Adult Pencil class, and
Creative Artists (for kids).
This year the Big Draw is being
celebrated not only in Ruskin, but
also in Tampa, St. Petersburg, and
Sarasota. Since they will be part-
nering with the Tampa Museum
of Art as they host the Big Draw's
International Day, local coordina-
tors of the Big Draw are looking for
volunteers to go to Tampa to help

You don't have to be an artist to
help! The Big Draw needs people
willing to clean and set up the Big
Draw Studio, people who can pro-
cure tables and chairs, someone to
check the air conditioning, artist's
helpers who arrange easels and art
supplies prior to instruction, and
people who can welcome the curious
who come to look and may stay to
play; a photographer or two, plenty
of people to help set up the final ex-
hibition, people who can distribute
flyers or get information to schools,
churches, and other community
groups, and of course participants
are needed! Take a class, visit, join
a Community Project group, walk
into the Studio and draw or craft
a little as they celebrate the power
of art to enliven our spirits and en-
noble our lives.
If you're interested in sharing your
artistic skills at the Big Draw Stu-
dio, call Mike Parker at 846-2000.

Max: the artist. There is a distinct
difference between the two sides
of this man. For him becoming the
artist doesn't mean he becomes an
elitist or one of the beau monde
lording over the Average Joe. It is
simply as if the man walks from
one universe into the next. It is ex-
traordinary.
'When I look at my paintings,
and where I'm sitting right now
I'm looking at 15 or 20 canvases,
and each one is completely differ-
ent, "he said. "I hardly know when
I did them. I hardly remember do-
ing them. But I remember really
well the brush strokes and I know
the shapes. I am living in my ar-
tistic world. I am living in a world
in which everything is possible
creatively and the paint, canvas,
brushes, subject matter, shapes,
colors, compositions, directions,
atmospheres, feelings..."
And then he walks into the next
universe, just another one of mil-
lions of universes.
Max has the unique ability to
transcend scale in a manner almost
beyond comprehension. In addi-
tion to painting a Continental Air-
lines 777 jet, he created the stage
for the Woodstock 99 concert -
it was nearly 700 feet across. To
create the stage, he worked from
a canvas that was only eight feet
wide. An object painted on that
canvas as small as his little finger
would be zoomed to more than 12
feet tall in the final product.
"So I played around with a hun-
dred drawings and then I walked
away and looked at them from a
distance and then I started visual-
izing how would this thing look if
it were two city blocks long," he
said.
And then he enters yet another
universe.
'For me, it's a wonderful time
when I paint. It is timeless. I don't
know if I'm in the 21st century or
the 19th century or the 23rd cen-
tury when I'm painting. I'm in the
middle of this atmospheric
thing with color, canvas,
paints, backgrounds, fore-
grounds, subjects and I
love them. And when I'm
in love with it, then I know

paint for the sake of painting, like
on a white canvas, and I approach
it with an empty mind, that's when
I'm at my most creative. Stuff
comes out that surprises me. I can
change it. But when I'm paint-
ing Obama, I have to have a cer-
tain amount of discipline saying,
'Look, I'm painting Obama or I'm
painting McCartney.' I take certain
liberties with that but just enough
so that it doesn't make it crazy. I
once did 65 Mona Lisas. Of course
Mona Lisa stayed Mona Lisa,
but how I underpainted and over-
painted, and what came around
her were of my own inventions.
Otherwise, they would just be 65
identical paintings. Each one was
completely unique and different
but yet each one was the Mona
Lisa."
Success has given him freedom,
a valuable commodity that he
does not squander. He continues
to be highly prolific; now produc-
ing what comes from his soul.
He doesn't have to make art, he
chooses to. He is following the
path of his heart, he doesn't need
the path of convenience.
'I allow myself to just be who
I want to be at that moment," he
said. "With every single painting
that I do, I allow myself to just
be totally free and let what wants
to happen, happen. If I suddenly
feel some color that needs to be
in a corer, I pick up a brush and
put it there. I'm being completely
free, I paint what I want to paint.
I've seen people who are writers
and they sit down at a computer to
write. I say, 'What are you doing?'
They say, 'I just feel like writing,
I don't even know what I'm going
to write.'
'Itis this way with my paintings,"
he continued. "I have a canvas, it's
white, I have a brush in my hand, I
look at my colors and I reach over
and whatever color I feel like hav-
ing at that second, I dip my brush
into it and then I feel where should
that paint go? I just feel it. I
do the brush strokes and I
answer it with more brush
strokes. Sometimes I an-
swer it with a shape, some-
times with a stroke, sometimes

Peter Max gained fani in Itll
Age of Aquarius, but h hlia ian-
aged to transcend time in wday
that contemporaries such as War-
hol and others could not. He start-
ed out thinking he was reinventing
himself, but the truth is he simply
became what he really wanted to
be. The result is passion, commit-
ment, feeling and a little doubt
along with talent, heart and a
splash of patriotism shared with
whoever wants to take a moment
to look at it or to talk about it.
'I came out of that realistic lin-
eage,"he said speaking of his sev-
en years of art school. "I can paint
like Rockwell. I have paintings in
my studio that people see and they
ask, 'You do that?' Yes, I do that.
But there was something in me
and maybe it had to do with grow-
ing up in the Orient and around the
world and, of course, there was
this whole hippie movement.
'It was the atmosphere," he con-
tinued. "I started drawing my own
style, my own characters, my own
worlds and it had a little bit of as-
tronomy with stars and planets and
characters flying through space
and one day some art director was
looking at my work, saw them and
said, 'Why haven't you shown me
that?' I was a serious artist, I was
a serious realist, I didn't think you
would show that type of art. I was
so classically trained. It's like a
violinist, and then people find out
he plays great bongos."
Peter Max America's Painter
Laureate, an Average Joe, the Vir-
tual Violinist with bongos is
coming to the Tampa Bay area
next week for an exhibit with the
Michael Murphy Gallery at 153
2nd Avenue North in Baywalk in
St. Petersburg. The exhibit is Sat-
urday, September 25 and Sunday,
September 26. The public is in-
vited to meet him.
'I would say my exhibition has
a nice broad perspective of things
I've done over the years and there
are a lot of new things that no one
has seen and some iconic images
that are loved by people," he said.
'If people have the book, The Art
of Peter Max [by Charles A. Riley
II], bring it to the gallery and I'll
sign it with a little doodle for ev-
erybody who brings it in."
He is a veteran of dozens of
one-man shows and, invariably,
he draws record crowds. His au-
tograph has become nearly as
iconic as his artwork, yet he signs
and draws and happily poses with
those who come to meet him.
'I love it,"he said with sincerity.
'I love making people happy. They


enjoy my work and I make a draw-
ing for them, I sign it, I personalize
it. And then, of course, the people
who acquire a piece of art, they not
only get a drawing on the back -
I make a big beautiful drawing -
but they get a book personalized
with a drawing, too."
Peter Max is a frequent visitor
to the Sunshine State. Through
his visits, and the autographs and
doodles, he leaves a little bit of
himself behind
'I enjoy Floinda I lo it it ,a

Don't expect that to happen any-
time soon; Peter Max is effectively
New York's artist-in-residence.
Besides, he is already here, in your
mind and in your memories. He
painted them. Let it be

FWC removes burrowing owl from cruise ship golf course


A Florida burrowing owl, listed
as a species of special concern, was
just hours away from becoming a
cruise ship stowaway last week-
end. Just before Royal Caribbean
International's "Oasis of the Seas"
was to depart Port Everglades for a
tropical locale, the owl was discov-
ered on the ship's mini-golf course,
on the upper deck. A Royal Carib-
bean crew member called the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
FWC Lt. David Bingham and a


Broward County Sheriff's Office
deputy safely removed the pint-sized
bird from the golf course. Bingham
released the owl in an open field in
western Broward County.
"Never in all of my 25 years with
the FWC have I seen anything like
this, and I have responded to some
strange calls," Bingham said. "I am
very pleased the owl wasn't injured
and that we could get it back to a
normal habitat."
As a species of special concern,
Florida burrowing owls, their bur-


rows and their eggs are protected
from harassment and/or disturbance
by state law. Burrowing owls also
are protected by the federal Migra-
tory Bird Treaty Act.
"Burrowing owls need to be in
open, treeless areas where they can
dig their burrow," said FWC biolo-
gist Ricardo Zambrano. "The arti-
ficial turf on the ship's golf course
resembles the fields they use for
nesting in urban areas; however, it
was obviously not suitable habitat
for this owl."


(I-vvu pnoto)
FWC Lt. David Bingham released the Florida burrowing owl in more suitable habitat.

Longhorns break new ground
The Lennard Longhorns football team broke new ground last
week. For the first time in the school's history the team is unde-
feated with a 3-0 record. Also for the first time, the Longhorns
defeated the Riverview Sharks 42-28 at home on Thursday. The
win was powered by Lennard running back Tevin Abney, who
made three trips to the endzone on 111 yards for the game, along
with the much vaunted Longhorns defense. With the Longhorns
leading 35-7 at the half, the Sharks roared back to rack up three
touchdowns in the second half, but the clock ran out on Riverview.

Snook controversy continues


From the
desert in
Arizona to
Long Boat
Key, we
spent our
fifty-second
Fish Tales wedding an-
ByJonie Maschek niversary on
the Gulf of
Mexico. While there, we decided
to finish our vacation in the moun-
tains, in a condo in Helen, GA.
The Las Vegas condo was modern
and on the strip; in Helen we had a
complete turnaround to a mountain
setting, a real fireplace and coun-
try furnishings. From rocks and
sand to steep snake curves up the
mountain to our condo was from
one extreme to another. If you
have not been to the Alpine village
in Helen, GA, schedule a stopover
in this unique mountain setting on
your next trip north.
Helen, GA is nestled in the
Blue Ridge Mountains on the
Chattahoochee River and is a re-
creation of an alpine village, com-
plete with cobblestone alleys and
Old World towers. The history of
this city is linked to the Cherokee
Indians, who have a burial ground
within the city.
It also relates to the arrival of early
settlers in the 1900s who ventured
there to mine for gold. Today tour-
ists may mine for gold or precious
stones at several mining attractions
along the Chattahoochee River. If
you are not successful, you may
buy gold and stones from the many
gift shops.
This mountain community has
existed for 41 years, but it was
not until 1968 when a group of lo-
cal businessmen met with a plan
to revitalize their town. They ap-
proached an artist friend who had
been stationed in Germany who
sketched the buildings and added
the gingerbread look and colors
to the entire town, with carpen-
ters renovating all buildings, mak-
ing the town a complete German
Alpine Village. With the mountain
setting, the history of the Indians,
the early gold mine rush, and the
Alpine German look, this little
community is now a thriving tour-
ist business making the town rich
with revenue and putting thou-
sands of citizens to work.
Helen is a place to relax in the
mountain air, or go horseback rid-
ing, play golf, canoe down the riv-
er, go fishing, raft down the river,
hike up the mountains or shop in
the over 200 specialty shops, vis-
it the black bear, and watch the
wild turkeys, bear or deer in your
backyard.
Our condo was straight up a
mountain and to get there we
curved and curved to finally reach
our destination high above the
treetops. At first it seemed an ef-
fort to go to town from our moun-
tain retreat, but I soon mastered the
mountain and drove up and down
it with ease.
To complete our long sum-
mer vacation, we ventured into
North Carolia over the Blue Ridge
Mountains. I, by now, had become
a mountain driver. It was now
September and we had been on a
plane and in the car since June, our
vacation had to end.
I must admit Florida never looked
so good, with no more curves and
mountains.
The fish of the month has been all
about snook. Much wrangling about
should the season open or not.
There has never been a true count
of how many snook were killed in
last year's freeze. This point has
been brought up at the many meet-
ings with the FWC. Others bring
up the kill of 1977, which was by


far the worst on record.
The fact that the saltwater law
became effective in 1990, and
since then the increase of anglers
fishing for snook has increased.
FWC biologists say it was a bad
freeze, but they will never know
how many snook were killed.
Anglers harvest over 100,000
snook from the Gulf of Mexico
each year and fewer on the Atlantic
side of Florida. The price of the
annual snook stamp went from $2
to $10, with this revenue going to


the research of the snook.
After many meetings and input
from everyone, it was decided to
open the season on the East Coast
and not here in the Gulf of Mexico
waters. The east coast season will
close Dec. 15. Snook fishing here
will not open until Sept. 1, 2011.
To be legal you may only catch
and release snook on this coast.
The factor in this ruling based on
the estimated kill of snook on this
coast was much greater than that
of the east coast.


On the east coast the snook
escaped to deeper waters to avoid
the kill. Remember, there will be no
September snook season on the wa-
ters of the Gulf of Mexico this year.
Good news is a Fall run of red-
fish. You must ease up on a school,
because if you spook them, the en-
tire school will disappear. Cast be-
yond the school with ease and you,
if lucky, will reel in a lunker red.
Reports are that they are all a good
size of 20" or larger. One keeper
red per person per day.


If you have ventured outdoors
lately, you know how scorching
hot it is, so don't forget to pack
extra drinking water. Instead of
your cap, wear a big hat and don't
forget the sunscreen, along with
your Polaroid glasses.
I have read most of your e-mails
and was surprised that so many of
you women missed my column. I

Restoration
Health and Safety

I was bor in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities
for the shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach

No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our
work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes
keeping you informed.
Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have
been working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers
and teams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring
people back to the Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in
place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.
