Doolev Groves rises from the ashes


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
SUN CITY Mike Houghtal-
ing ran his fingers through the
sandy soil and said, "It's like tal-
cum powder." It wasn't always
that way. Six years ago the soil
was thicker, richer and hard at
work nourishing more than 22,000
citrus trees at Dooley Groves, just
south of Ruskin. That was before
the hurricanes of 2004 and before
those strong winds blew citrus can-
ker into the area. Only a handful of
grapefruit trees at Dooley Groves
showed signs of the canker, but
neighboring trees had it. Due to
rules in place in Florida at the
time, all 22,000 healthy trees were
bulldozed and burned in 2005. As
Mike ran his fingers through the
soil there was nothing growing; it
was an empty field.
The soil is in Houghtaling's
blood, as it was in his father's
grandfather's and great-grandfa-
ther's blood. He is a fourth-gen-
eration citrus grower. Standing
with him are his son David and
six-year-old grandson Connor, the
fifth and sixth generation. From
the bare soil Houghtaling nursed
200 acres of citrus trees producing
premium gift fruit, not the typi-
cal Florida oranges that end up in
juice containers. The varieties he
grew were among the most rare,
and difficult to cultivate. From the
fruit of his labor, came retail stores
and a packinghouse with a direct
marketing business. Throughout
all of it, his father, Dooley, was
with him.
The past years have been diffi-
cult for Houghtaling. He watched
his beloved grove, healthy and
productive trees, go up in smoke
because of the mere threat of cit-

Intuitive Arts Fair displays various therapies

and self-help techniques
0 By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
SUN CITY CENTER- Several years ago I did a
story on the National Institutes of Health in Bethes-
da, Md., having added a whole department to study
the connection between the mind and body in heal-
ing.
Among the things they study at the NIA's Mind
Body Institute are complementary and alternative
medicines, the mind's influence over bodily condi-
tions, and the effects of techniques including yoga,
acupuncture, acupressure, meditation, prayer, and
dietary supplements.
There are hundreds of others that can be found on
the NIH Web site, http://www.nih.gov and typing
"Mind Body Institute" in the search line at the top
of the home page.
My point is, the government is taking complemen-
tary and alternative medicine (referred to on the site
as CAM) very seriously.
They say that Western medicine has literally
'thrown out the baby with the bathwater' by disre- '
garding some Eastern medical therapies and prac-
tices that have been used successfully for more than
6,000 years and also refer to the part of Hippocrates
studies (all medical doctors in the U.S. take the
Hippocratic Oath) that relate to moral and spiritual PENNY FLETCHER PHOTO

ferred luncheon conversation, but
for the state's vegetable growers
they'll be topics of choice here next
week.
The fifth annual Florida Ag Expo,

cultural Sciences (UF/IFAS) facil-
ity on C.R. 672 east of Balm, the
event is open to the public.
In keeping with its name, the
GCREC focus for the day is educa-
tional, giving growers an open win-
dow on current research, opportuni-
ties to hear from and question many
of the center's faculty on specific
subjects and chances to exchange
their problem-solving farm experi-
ences, said Christine Cooley, expo
spokesperson.
Following brief opening remarks
by Dr. Jack Rechcigl, center direc-
tor, and Dr. Jack Payne, UF/IFAS
senior vice president from Gaines-
ville, the discussions, mini-seminars
and field tours begin with a Grow-
ers' Roundtable at 8:40 AM consid-
ering current issues facing the veg-
etable industry, Cooley said.
Facilitated by Gene McAvoy, re-
gional vegetable and horticultural
extension service agent from Hen-
dry County, the roundtable includes
a half dozen of the state's most
hands-on growers and shippers, in-
cluding Tony DiMare, Billy Heller,

Have you ever seen
Purple peppers, striped tomatoes,
bi-colored eggplants...all are part
of the offering at Backyard Produce,
opening on Nov. 4.
The new produce stand features
locally grown produce. Some of
the offerings
Share grown on
site, includ-
ing heirloom
tomatoes, red,
yellow and
even purple peppers and eggplants.
The remaining inventory will be
sourced 'as local as we can get it,'
says Jayna Hamel, co-owner with
her husband, Bernie.
Their plan is to source fruits and
vegetables from Hillsborough Coun-
ty first, Florida second, and the south-
eastern U.S. third. While seasonal of-
ferings may require that some staples
come from further away, the Hamels
are committed to only selling U.S.-
grown fruits and vegetables.
"We have an abundant harvest of
fruits and vegetables available sea-
sonally right here in Hillsborough
County. And because we are lucky


a purple pepper?
enough to live in the Sunshine State,
we have access to the freshest and
highest quality winter produce grown
in the U.S. right here in Florida. Our
full- and part-time residents have
told us time and time again they want
to access the locally grown produce,
and that is what they will find every
day at Backyard Produce," Bernie
Hamel adds.
Jayna Hamel explains that locally
grown produce is better for the con-
sumer, better for the environment,
and better for the local economy.
"The sooner a product is consumed
after picking, the more nutritious it
is. Less travel means fewer emis-
sions from trucking the produce from
farm to warehouses and beyond. And
of course, supporting area farmers
helps the local economy."
Backyard Produce is located at Els-
berry Nursery Farms, on the north-
west comer of Big Bend and U.S.
Highway 41 in Apollo Beach. Hours
are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m Tuesday-
Friday; and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Saturday.


Community invited to concert


The community is invited to a
Night on Broadway Concert pre-
sented by the Eastern Hillsborough
Community Band. The concert be-
gins at 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov 4 at
the United Methodist Church of
Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb
Blvd. West.
The cost is $5. The program
includes a collection of favorite


show tunes, including Fiddler on
the Roof, Mary Poppins and selec-
tions from The Lion King.
The EHCB is an all-volunteer
concert band that is committed to
making a cultural contribution to
its community. It has more than 40
members from a variety of back-
grounds and of all ages. The band
is also seeking new players, espe-
cially for flute, clarinet, saxophone
and percussion.

If you're not smart, be very, very nice


One of my very favorite mov-
ies is one in which Jimmy Stewart
played opposite a 6-foot' invisible
rabbit called Harvey. As with most
of Stewart's roles, he played a mild-
mannered person who was the epit-
ome of what a nice guy should be.
In fact, one
of the other
characters
in the movie
commented
on his nice-
ness, to
Positive which he re-
Talk plied, "I have
no choice but
By William Hodges to be nice.
My mother
told me, when I was very young, that
in order to get along in life, I would
have to be very, very smart or very,
very nice. Since I've never been
very smart, I was left with learning
how to be very nice." I think many
of us could learn a lesson from this
wonderful movie. Few of us can get
along simply on our wits; we need
to rely on the goodwill of others. We
earn that goodwill by being nice.
Here are a few things that you can
do to earn a few points in the very,
very nice category.
1. Sit down and write a note
to someone you know who may
be lonely. Let them know you are
thinking of them. Fill your note with
cheerful, upbeat items about things
that are going on in your life. Don't
fill it with complaints or problems.
2. Make up your mind that
you are going to go an entire day
without complaining to anyone
about anything. During that day,
give everyone a bright smile and a
hearty greeting.
3. Stop on your way home
from work and pick up a special
treat for your significant other. For
just one night, enjoy that great des-
sert with no recriminations about
the weight it may add. You can diet


together tomorrow. Make sure it is
your significant other's favorite des-
sert, not yours.
4. Look for something nice
to say about each person you meet.
It's amazing how, if you begin look-
ing for the good in people-for the
talents they have that you might
praise-you will begin to see the
good and the talents even without
effort. Everyone has something of
which to be proud. You can help
them find it.
5. Probably one of the best
ways to be thought of as nice is to
lend a sympathetic ear to others.
Think about those people you con-
sider nice. How many of them are
good listeners? I bet you'll find a
majority of them are. It's easy to find
people who will talk to us, but very
hard to find those who will take the
time to listen to us. Take that time
and I guarantee you will be thought
of as nice.
Jimmy Stewart was playing a role
in Harvey, but from what I under-
stand, he was, in fact, the man he
portrayed-a very, very nice man-
one who cared about others and was
a good listener. In the movie, he said
that he worked at being nice. I sus-
pect in real life he had to work on
it until it became a habit. So it will
be with most of us. We will have to
think about being nice and then con-
sciously act upon it. But won't it be
a better world if we do?

No, No, Nanette coming to Riverview
No, No, Nanette, with lyrics by Irving Caesar and Otto Harbach, music
by Vincent Youmans and a book by Harbach and Frank Mandel, original-
ly opened in 1925 and was subsequently revived in 1971 for a run of 861
performances. Its success is widely considered the milestone that set off
the revival craze in the early '70s and '80s. The frothy plot incorporates
the musical comedy classics 'Tea for Two' and 'I Want To Be Happy.'
Originally adapted and directed by Burt Shevelove, 'No, No, Nanette'
was the show that made camp fun for the whole family. "Nostalgia may
prove to be the overriding emotion
of the '70s," Clive Barnes wrote in No No
the opening sentence of his review--.
for The New York Times. And sure
enough, 'Nanette,' which featured
the 1930s tapdancing sweetheart (.
Ruby Keeler (in the cast) and
Busby Berkeley (as the show's
supervisor), opened the door to a
multitude of frolicsome imitators, |
creating second and third acts for TI
aging stars who had thought their T_
dancing days were over.
Now, No, No Nanette opens Thursday, Nov. 11, at the Riverview
High School Auditorium for six performances. Produced by Riverview
High School Theatre Department, No, No Nanette is directed by Daron
Hawkins. Tickets are $10 general admission, and are available at www.
riverviewhighschool.ticketleap.com or at the Riverview High School
box office prior to performances.
Performances are at 7 p.m. on Nov. 11, 12, 13, 18, 19, and 20. River-
view High School is located at 11311 Boyette Road, Riverview. This
show is suitable for the entire family!

The charity
potluck
It is said that charity begins at
home. Because my family is on
such a tight budget, it is some-
times impossible to give money
to a worthy cause, as much as we
would love to help. Recently, we
felt the urge to give to a worthy
cause at our church, but could only
afford to give $10 to $20. We came
up with the idea of a 'Potluck with
a Purpose.' Assuming that many
of our friends were experiencing
the same woes, we invited eight
couples to come to a potluck and
bring a sealed envelope with the
amount of money that they would
have spent taking their family out
to eat. It could be the equivalent
of a nice restaurant or, in our case,
fast food. No one knew what the
others were giving and it was all in
cash. At the end of the evening, we
had collected $347 for our church
project. Sweet! We all had a great
evening together and served an
even greater purpose. L.

* Continued from page 1
disregarded as meaningless.
Not so anymore, as many medical
doctors are beginning to recognize
- and even refer patients- to some
techniques including acupuncture
that 20 years ago would not have
been considered valid remedies in
the United States.
Remembering the article I wrote,
and having had some experience
with alternative medicine myself, I
was anxious to attend the Oct. 30 In-
tuitive Arts Fair held at the Chakra
Center, 137 S. Pebble Beach Blvd.
in Sun City Center owned and run
by Doni Doty.
"I started the center as a place for
people to come to share their ex-
periences and see what techniques
helped others," Doni told me. She
only opened in May, but already has
many groups and therapists signed
up taking appointments and seeing
clients there.
Some discussion groups are free
of charge, and each therapist has her
Z_ "__


own technique and fee schedule.
But the Intuitive Arts Fair wasn't
about treatments or fees. It was
about showing what is available,
and while I was there I wanted to
see it all.
Velora Peacock is a certified hyp-
notherapist with the International
Medical and Dental Hypnotherapy
Association. Yet while she was wait-
ing for the doors to open before the
event began, she had a card reading
done by Cynthia Castillo, who tells
a client enough about his or her past
that they will have confidence in
what she can tell them about their
future. She says many in her family
have had what she calls the ability
to tap into their -noll, intuitive
ability" rather than use the word
p-1lilk" because she believes
everyone has this ability, although
some may disregard it so regularly
it weakens and finally goes away.
"I come from a real corporate
background," Velora told me. "I've
been trained scientifically. But I

know the biggest thing is to get
the mind out of the way and let the
body tell us what is wrong, or what
its needs are. It has the ability to do
that but we must listen."
Practices including acupressure
and the Jin Shin Jyutsu demonstrat-
ed for me by Marcia Wilson, con-
centrate on finding out if the body's
energy is blocked and getting it
flowing again. Then yoga or prayer
and meditation, or a combination of
whatever works best for your par-
ticular body can be used to maintain
the proper energy.
"Jin Shin Jyutsu is an ancient Jap-
anese art that helps find the balance
and harmony that exists in each of
us," Marcia explained. She locates
the pulse points on the body and
releases pressure of stagnant en-
ergy that has become blocked at a
certain point, perhaps from an ac-
cident, bending the wrong way, or
yes- even some kinds of thoughts.
I watched as Donna Vrzal (who
facilitates a free weekly discussion
group on women's issues) dressed
in a Red Sox uniform in honor of
Halloween weekend get a comput-
erized aura reading from Sparrow
Slo'an, which is a stage name de-
liberately used because most of the
week she works in a high profile
state job.
I personally think it is a shame that
a computerized technique licensed
as a medical treatment in 37 other
countries is considered by Western
medical professionals as "hooey"
enough for someone who performs
it to have to use a stage name.
I did, however, promise to use
only the name on her brochures as
her identification.
"The body has thousands of spin-


Cynthia Castillo, left, tells Velora Peacock enough about her past to

ning wheels of energy," she told
me. "Some years ago, before com-
puterization, people thought of an
aura as one color but now we can
see every color of the rainbow. The
reason for that is that white light en-
ergy hits us, and we are like prisms,
being made mostly of water. At var-
ious times we emit different signals
from our bodies. Now that science
has proven that even the nucleus of
atoms are in constant movement, I
think someday soon they will rec-
ognize this technique as a medical
diagnostic tool in the United States.
It just hasn't happened yet."
So she does not bill her technique
as anything more than an "aura
reading."
I will say, however, I had never
met this woman and yet my "aura
reading" showed the exact areas
I am under medical treatment for
as "distressed" and my strongest
points with "the highest energy au-
ras."

I know that cinnamon has done
a better job treating my diabetes
than insulin. That is not fiction: it
is fact.
To say the Intuitive Arts Fair was
interesting is an understatement. I
could have spent all day exploring
the different ways to contribute to
my health. Some of the techniques,
like the Jin Shin Jyutsu, are also
taught to be self-administered when
needed at home.
When I got home, I went into the
NIH site for the first time in several
years and see that they have made
long strides into CAM. Many alter-
native methods of healing are now
accepted that were not just 10 years
ago. I was also especially interested
in a study on prayer. It seems that
people who were prayed for (who
did not know they were being
prayed for) healed faster in a study
than those who were not prayed
for.
Now this implies that the minds
of "others" as well as our own can
influence our bodies as well.
I think I will visit the NIH site
again soon and keep up with their
studies.
Meanwhile, people may find out
more about the Chakra Center by
calling (813) 633-9400 between 11
a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays.
For those who are unfamiliar
with the word Chakra, much can
be found on the Internet and in li-
braries under Eastern medical tech-
niques. But basically, chakrass" are
considered to be centers of activity
that receive, assimilate and then use
life force energy.
The word itself means "wheel
or disk" and refers to a spinning
sphere of bioenergetic activity span-
ning the body, with the main seven
chakras lined up near (or inside of)
the spine, spanning from the base
of the spine to the forehead. Other
chakras are connected to or aligned
with the main seven; the Chinese
having recorded more than 500 spe-
cific areas and the parts of the body
they affect.


Doni Doty opened The Chakra
Center in Sun City Center in May
so that people who believe in
spiritual wellness and holistic
healing modalities would have a
place to gather and share their
talents. The women see clients
by appointment at the Cen-
ter and books, tapes, oils, etc.
are sold. Woman's discussion
groups are also held there.

Business educational.
ByDna It's just as true
By Dana Dittmar this year as
this year as
it was in the
90s, when the mantra was "It's the
economy, stupid!"
While most of you reading this
column are retired, there are hun-
dreds of us here in Sun City Cen-
ter who are still working. We own
the shops, the restaurants, the ser-
vice centers, the medical offices,
the banks, the grocery stores, the
beauty salons, and the home im-
provement companies. We're the
lawyers, the phone companies,
the home health agencies, and the
non-profits that all work here to
meet the needs of our residents.
In this economy, we need to
support these businesses and
keep them healthy by shopping
with them, hiring them to fix our


clogged drains, having them ser-
vice our golf carts, and buying
flowers from them. If these busi-
nesses don't survive, it's a car ride
to Ruskin or Riverview to patron-
ize another business. The golf cart
won't make it.
So, I invite you to come to our
Business Expo on Tuesday, No-
vember 9th at the Community
Hall on South Pebble Beach Blvd.
from 8 am until 2 pm. We will
have more than 75 local Cham-
ber member businesses there with
something to meet your every
need. These are the people who
make your retirement here in Sun
City Center as stress-free as pos-
sible. People who want to see this
community grow and thrive, even
when the economy isn't where it
should be. Your support is impor-
tant to us.
Besides, it's fun! We'll have Bin-
go, door prizes, and a 50/50 raffle.
Visit with neighbors you haven't
talked to since you turned on the
air conditioning last May and wel-
come back our regular snowbirds.
The important thing is to see what
is available to you from the busi-
nesses who are local. You might
be surprised by what's right here
-just a golf cart ride away!

In past years, some residents
expressed a desire to pay something
for the service, so Cotter Financial
decided this year to accept donations
on behalf of Sun City Center Emer-
gency Squad. These donations have
been passed along to the squad.
To make the event more fun, Cot-
ter provided complimentary hot dogs
and beverages for those bringing
items to shred. Incredibly, the shred-
ded paper from this event weighed
8,400 pounds.

The No Turkey
It is hard being a vegetarian
sometimes. The only thing that
keeps me on the straight and nar-
row when I
am sur-
rounded by
Sthe delecta-

favorite meat
Saturation filled dishes
Point is how sick I
By Karey Burek became from
bad meat.
That snaps
me right back into the vegetarian
eater I have become over the past
6 months; and I haven't slipped up
yet.
My true test is just around the
corer. The holidays are com-
ing up and all I can think of are
the memories of celebrating with
feasts of all different delicious
dishes prepared lovingly by my
family members. A lot of those
feasts focused on the main dish
which was always some type of
carcass proudly displayed in the
middle of the table. This year, I
will enjoy a meal of side dishes
and desserts, and try not to stare
longingly at the Thanksgiving bird
or Christmas ham.
Someone mentioned having a
Thanksgiving feast with Tofurky.
I personally have never tried the
stuff and don't know anyone who
has, however, it is considered a
vegetarian feast. According to to-
furky.com, the first tofurky roast

NOVEMBER 4, 2010

Turkey Day
was introduced in 1995 and has
gained momentum and popularity
with vegetarians during the holi-
day season. For Thanksgiving in
particular, there is a tofurky feast
which consists of a tofurky roast
made with soybeans, giblet type
gravy, wild rice and whole wheat
bread stuffing. Not only does it
make vegetarians feel part of the
turkey day celebration, the meals
are 100% vegan, so everyone
wins. Eating a meal consisting of
soybeans, rice, whole wheat bread
and gravy sounds nutritious, but
does it really make the consumer
feel like they are eating a true
Thanksgiving feast?
What I have noticed on my veg-
etarianjourney is that texture is ev-
erything. I can close my eyes and
imagine eating a wonderfully juicy
hot dog when I eat Leanies because
the non-meat item has the texture
and flavor of a hot dog-even if
you aren't a vegetarian. I highly
recommend trying them. Most
of the non-meat items I have tried
are the texture of cooked mush-
rooms, soggy and gross; making
me not want to eat certain dishes
due to the slimy feeling. The to-
furky roast is supposedly the fla-
vor and texture of a roasted turkey
with stuffing and gravy. If this is
a lifestyle choice for vegetarians,
then maybe giving a tofurky feast
a try isn't such a bad idea! Now,
if only I could find these products
in Tampa.

Dooley Groves
* Continued from page 1
rus canker in 2005. Almost exactly
one year ago, he lost his father and
business partner in a tragic car ac-
cident. Julius "Dooley" Houghtal-
ing began his life as a citrus farm-
er, became a nuclear physicist, and
then returned to the grove to help
his son Mike build the business.
For the past five years, 200 acres
of land has been laid to waste and
pushed aside. Houghtaling and
his family struggled to find the
resources necessary to bring the
grove back to life, at one point
planting alternate crops just to sur-
vive. But it is citrus fruit that is the
family's legacy; it is Mike's true
love. He has devoted 35 years of
his life to it; his family has devoted
generations.
Amidst the bickering and nega-
tivity of the election season, with
candidates pointing fingers and
blaming each other for a bad
economy and for America's de-
cline in production, something
quite amazing happened in old
Sun City: Dooley Groves rose
from the ashes. Mike, his family,
and employees began the process
of putting 25 acres back to work
by planting the first of 7,000 trees
that will bear Honeybell tangelos,
among the rarest and most diffi-
cult-to-produce varieties of citrus
in Florida.
It was no small event. Quietly,
among the shouting of candidates
and their supporters, Houghtaling
and his family began to produce
something. While many people
feel that America doesn't produce
anything anymore, agriculture
remains one of Florida's leading
industries and through agri-
culture, America leads the world.
Houghtaling's efforts will require
a level of patience that is more
rare than the Honeybells that will


someday come forth from his land.
He is hoping to push the newly-
planted trees to begin producing a
crop within three years. It will be
three years of sweat, hard work,
and love before he will see a return
on his investment.
While the candidates bemoaned,
this one family has made a dif-
ference. When the land begins
producing, Houghtaling will con-
tribute to the community through
higher property taxes. The hard-
ware stores and other local busi-
nesses will see an uptick in busi-
ness as the grove rises up again.
In making the investment to bring
back the grove, Houghtaling is
doing his part to strengthen and
straighten the very backbone of
Florida. They are one family, in
South Hillsborough, in Florida, in
America, making a positive dif-
ference. What's more, Houghtal-
ing has restored his family's long
legacy not bad for a single day

in October.
Just off Stephens Road in Sun
City, thousands of orange stakes
marked where trees would soon
rise from the soil in 25 acres of
land. Mike planted the first tree
himself, with his own hands, in
memory of his father. Later, his
son David and grandson Con-
nor joined him in planting more
trees. Three generations working
the land, restoring life to what had
been reduced to ashes.
In the 1928, writer Marjorie
Kinnan Rawlings purchased a 72-
acre orange grove in Cross Creek,
Florida. The grove so impacted
that the author of The Yearling
wrote a book about her life there.
She ended the book, entitled Cross
Creek, saying:
It seems to me that the earth may
be borrowed but not bought. It may
be used, but not owned. It gives it-
self in response to love and tend-
ing, offers its seasonal flowering


and fruiting. But we are tenants
and not possessors, lovers and not
master. Cross Creek belongs to the
wind and the rain, to the sun and
the seasons, to the cosmic secrecy
of seed, and beyond all, to time.
Mike Houghtaling, like his fa-
ther, grandfather and great-grand-
father before him, understands
all of that. Once again, Dooley
Groves belongs to the sun and the


seasons and to time. As tenants of
the land go, Houghtaling is a very
good one.
Dooley Groves is located at 1651
Stephens Road in old Sun City.

OBSERVER NEWS RIVERVIEW CURRENT SCC OBSERVER 13


By Mitch Traphagen
mitch@observernews.net
Esther was born a child of the Great
Depression in the most rural of rural
South Dakota. She went to school
in a horse-drawn wagon, learning to
speak English when the native Ger-
man language of the area went out
of favor prior to World War II. She
grew up in a family of 10 children.
They weren't rich but there was no
one much better off to tell them they
were poor.
Bruce was born two years later. In
the grip of the Depression, his fa-
ther did what he had to do. At one
point that meant moving his family
to a town few have ever heard of
to work at what would become the
Black Hills Ordnance Depot in Ig-
loo, South Dakota. Early on, civil-
ian housing wasn't the best in Igloo
but the rent was cheap at about $12
per month, and the community had
amenities that were somewhat rare
among small towns in South Da-
kota, things such as electric stoves
and water heaters. Before the war
ended, Bruce returned to his home-
town of Claremont on the other side
of the state.
He was a football star. Well, at
least his team was. The Claremont
Honkers six-man football team set a
national record winning 61 consecu-
tive games. Claremont is not even


on a highway the school never
had more than 50 students. The
building is long gone but the record
stands in South Dakota.
Bruce and Esther met while attend-
ing Northern State College in nearby
Aberdeen. He would sit behind her
at basketball games. He invited her
to the Claremont High School prom.
In places such as Claremont, the en-
tire town would attend the prom and
Bruce was an alumni. His father,
George, one of the smartest men I
have ever known, was the school
janitor. Being a special event, Es-
ther wanted to dress up. Bruce con-
vinced her that, despite her misgiv-
ings, she could certainly wear her
hoop skirt on the train for the 20-
mile ride from Aberdeen. It turned
out that wasn't his best idea. Today,
the trauma she felt trying to smash
into a train seat is a happy memory
at which she laughs and smiles.
Like many young men from small
towns, Bruce heard the call to serve
his country. He joined the United
States Navy and discovered that
Chicago was a very long way in ev-
ery sense from Claremont. Within a
few weeks, he developed a shoulder
injury. The Navy doctors told him
that he could either have surgery
that may leave him physically im-

paired or he could accept a medi-
cal discharge. He chose the latter,
returned to Northern State College,
and never again had problems with
his shoulder.
Esther and Bruce married shortly
after he returned to Claremont. The
family quickly grew to three chil-
dren but they had dreams that went
beyond the close confines of the
small town. With a fourth child on
the way, Bruce quit his job teach-
ing at his alma mater, and together,
he and Esther packed up their lives
to move west, leaving behind their
parents, siblings and a $1,500 home
mortgage.
The fourth child was born in
Washington on Thanksgiving Day.
Esther's doctor had to be called in
from duck hunting to do the deliv-
ery and Bruce cooked Thanksgiving
dinner for the other three children.
After that, it wasn't long before
Bruce and Esther decided to return
home to South Dakota.
Bruce went to work earning his
master's degree at South Dakota
State University and the young
family struggled financially while
they looked towards better days.
They were poor but the children,

Q What are some common symptoms of cataracts?
S.B.M.
A Cataracts can effect vision in many ways. Often the development is
so slow that the patient may be unaware that they have cataracts.
Some patients constantly clean their glasses in an attempt to see better!
Here are some common symptoms:

Difficulty following a golfball or reading captions on TV
Difficulty or avoidance of night driving
Halos around light at night
Difficulty reading fine print or street signs
Glare in sunlight or with night driving
Fuzzy or blurred vision

Officials say it's safe to eat seafood from Gulf


Fish Tales
ByJonie Maschek


If you
have second
thoughts
about eat-
ing seafood
since the
oil spill, the
FDA de-
clares that
Gulf seafood


is safe to eat. They found no risky
levels of contaminants in the nu-
merous species of seafood tested.
Be assured that many agencies
beside the Food and Drug
Administration tested all fish and
shellfish to announce that the
Gulf seafood is safe for human
consumption.
Mac attacks are attracting anglers
in our Gulf waterways. Spanish
mackerel, as well as schools of
king mackerel are flooding our
waterways. Those most success-
ful in the catch were chumming
before casting their line. It is best
to use a wire leader and thread live
bait for a positive catch of the big
king fish, with some measuring
the 30" size.
Since snook season is closed on
the West coast, I suggest that you
fish for the king mackerel. Spanish
mackerel are small, but I found
that for their size they put out a lot
of action before they are boated.
Spanish mackerel have the same
dental work as the king mackerel,
with their chopper working just as
well out of water as within. I urge
you to use a long-handled hook
plucker when releasing this fish.
Don't be caught with trout in
your bait well, as Nov. 1 the sea-
son ended in our waterways. I
hope you caught enough to grace
your dinner table before the end of
the season.
While fishing the flats, do you
cast into the sand holes in the sur-
rounding area? Some of the bigger
predators hold in the sand, where
they are camouflaged and can
easily ambush their prey. Other
times they could be on the edge of
the grass watching. Not only red-
fish are in this area searching for
food, but cobia, trout, mackerel
or even a tarpon could be lurking
around looking for lunch. So why
not cast in the sand holes and get
your lunch before the predators?
September and October are the
best months to catch redfish, but
due to our great Florida sunshine,
we still have pods of these fish in
our waterways. Don't motor up to
a pod, cut your motor and drift in,
as this fish is easily spooked.
Light tackle will not suffice
while fishing this pod. You proba-
bly would do best with 30 to 50 lb.
gear. Since you are only allowed
one redfish of legal size per day,
take great care to release them as a
healthy fish. Get a solid grip on the
front jaw and with your other hand
hold the tail, while dipping his
nose in the current. He will start
flipping his tail vigorously when
he is ready to go. Watch him and
be sure he swims off as a healthy
fish and not belly up.
The warm weather has kept the
land angler busy catching black
drum. Along the piers and bridg-
es black drum are bringing lots
of anglers fun. Since the larger
drum have worms in them, only
the smaller ones are good table-
fare. Those catching the large ones
are having contests about who
is catching the most in an hour's
time. All the large ones were catch
and release by a trio of anglers I
spoke with at Simmons Park.
Sheepshead have been keeping
bridge and pier anglers busy this
week. Some refer to this fish as
convict fish, since it has black and
white stripes throughout its body.


It does have a snowy white lean
meat and great to eat.
Florida is not the only place to
look out for sharks. They are in
every corer of the world, but it
seems that we get all the publicity
when people are bitten.
The largest shark is the Whale
shark. It is said that this shark is
harmless to mankind. Any shark,
except the Whale shark, will at-
tack if wounded.Sharks are from
the Dogfish family and closely
related to the Rays. Blacktip shark


are found in our waterways and
are often served at fish fries.
Hammerhead sharks are cruising
our Bay waters and will attack
anything in their way. There are
more than fifty species of sharks.
This short resume of sharks,
might help you who have called
and E-mailed me of your concern
of sharks in our waterways.
The food value of a pompano is
excellent since we are asked for
our health's sake to consume three
fish meals a week, I suggest you


drop a line and catch a pompano
this week while the fishing is fine.
An end to our Bay area voice for
sportfishing took place this past
week when we lost 92-year-old
Gene Turner of St. Petersburg who
was one of the strongest voices for
sportfishing in the South United
States. He was a boat builder and
an adamant activist. He is credited
for saving the king fish and other
game fish for the anglers to catch
today. Our sympathy to his loved
ones.

November is Manatee Awareness Month
Governor Charlie Crist has continued the time-honored tradition of
Florida governors who served before him by recently signing a procla-
mation declaring November as Manatee Awareness Month.
"It has been an exceptionally tough year for endangered manatees and
their aquatic environment. Through Sept. 30, 656 manatees have been
S-a confirmed dead, which represents
nearly 13 percent of the species'
estimated population," said Pat-
s Gre en.a rick Rose, Executive Director of
Gi reor the non-profit Save the Manatee
Club.
lp "e t 8 on "This far surpasses the record
SwSavet manEatneeof 429 deaths set in 2009, and the
Sl u anateed year isn't over yet. The population
suffered record-setting mortality in
the first part of the year from cold
stress, and we're still uncertain as
to what the long-term effects will
be on the manatee's habitat from
the disastrous oil spill in the Gulf
of Mexico."
To honor Florida's beloved man-
atees, and to raise awareness and
funding for conservation programs,
the Florida Motion Picture & Tele-
vision Association has included a
Silent Auction to benefit Save the
si lith e Manatee Club as part of its 21st
Annual Crystal Reel Awards Gala.
The Gala is being touted as
'The Florida Oscars,' which acknowledges and highlights outstanding
achievements in Florida motion picture, television, audio recording, and
digital media productions.
Admission to the Auction and Florribean Reception is $15 and includes
hors d'oeuvres, tropical cash bar, donation drawings, door prizes, and a
multitude of exciting items, including celebrity autographed items up for
auction with several special items offered in Live Auctions throughout
the night.
For ticket orders, call Save the Manatee Club at (407) 539-0990, or

Brandon Academy 6th and 7th graders


Brandon Academy, established
in 1970, is the oldest independent
school in Brandon, with students
ranging from PreK3 through the
8th grade. Recently awarded the
U.S. Department ofEducationBlue
Ribbon Award for its academic
achievements, the school attracts a
diverse population, including chil-
dren from every religion, culture
and ethnicity living in the region.
Under the leadership of Daina
Weiss, 6th and 7th grade Brandon
Academy students have been at-
tending Seacamp on Newfound
Harbor on Big Pine Key, Florida
since 2000. This year, 22 students
attended the four-day program
from Oct. 26-29.
They included 6th graders
Andres Gonzalez, Alix Sobh,
Mason Foret, Kelton Tanner, Jona-
than Christan, Dennis Delic, Avi
Gonzalez, Ahna Butler, Sabrina
Priestly, Katie Troke and Olivia
Murray; as well as 7th graders
Zack Kazbor, Kyle Crescini, Alex
Seward, Adrian Frasier, Sarah
Gimbel, Sarah Nunn, Ashley
Dutton, Jordan Weinstein, Dillon
Rudolph, Robert Hernandez, and
Conor Calahan.
Seacamp Association, Inc. is a


private, non-profit organization
established in 1966 dedicated to
marine science education. Their
mission is to create awareness of
the complex and fragile marine
world and to foster critical think-
ing and informed decision mak-
ing about man's use of natural
resources. Seacamp is one of the
few organizations in the United
States providing experiential edu-
cation in marine studies to middle
school students. To date, more than
200,000 students have participated
in sessions at Seacamp.
Located on Newfound Harbor
on Big Pine Key, Seacamp offers
boys and girls an opportunity to
explore some of the most exciting
waters in the Florida Keys, both in
the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of
Mexico. Students study coral reefs,
sandy and grassy areas, mud flats
and natural tide pools, all of them
rich in sea plants and animals basic
to the study of marine science. All
of these programs are taught by
degree-holding biologists, geolo-
gists and oceanographers.
During the four day program
Brandon Academy students, par-
ents, and teachers were able to
discover for themselves the fasci-

Free Garden Seeds
Warm weather brings with it a desire to plant vegetable gardens and flowers. For many of
the fruits and vegetables that I grow, I do not use store bought seeds. Instead, I use the
seeds directly from freshly bought produce. Just about any seeds can be used. I use potato
eyes, pepper seeds, jalapeno seeds, squash seeds, etc. I just planted apple seeds, so hope-
fully in a few years, I will have an apple tree. Just remove the seeds before you cook/eat
your fresh produce. Wash them and place them on a towel to dry. In a day or two, they are
ready to plant! The best part is that it's free! Mandy S. in Wisconsin

nating, little-known world beneath
the ocean surface and the deli-
cate relationships which unite all
marine organisms in endless cycles
of life and survival. The students
learned basic ecological principles
and concepts that are pertinent to
the future of our natural resources
as well as the study of marine sci-
ence. Some of the concepts dis-
cussed throughout the four day
program included:
General Marine Sciences: stu-
dents engaged in a general survey
of all phases of marine science,
giving BA students with little
background knowledge the basics
of marine life.
Marine Communities: students
participated in in-depth discus-
sions about animals and plants as
they relate to each other on a com-
munity level. The students learned
the different areas and the type of
life supported there. These areas
were also studied on a microscopic
community level which opened up
a whole new world not seen by the
naked eye.
Animal Behavior: students
studied the habits and behavior
patterns of local marine animals,
such as color changes in fishes,
feeding habits, schooling, day and
night behavior, relationships be-
tween organisms, reproduction,
and symbiosis.
Marine Invertebrates: students
learned about animals without
backbones which inhabit the tidal
flats, offshore coral heads, and the
variety of other habitats around
Seacamp. Because the tropical
marine environment is well known
for its amazing diversity of in-
vertebrate types, students had the
opportunity of studying sponges,
starfish, corals, sea fans, crabs and
numerous others.
Marine Botany: students went
out on field studies of marine and
terrestrial botanical areas, includ-
ing the pine thatch, hardwood

hammock, and mangrove commu-
nity. Marine plants and algae were
observed, collected, identified,
and pressed.
Marine Vertebrates: students
also performed a survey of marine
animals with backbones, encom-
passing not only fish but birds and
sea mammals as well.
Marine Geology: students heard
all about the formation of the Flor-
ida Keys, studies of ancient reefs,
rock formation, tidal areas, living
coral reefs, sediment transporta-
tion and water tables.


Andres Gonzalez


Man and the Sea: students
discussed the principles of pollu-
tion and ecological imbalances put
forth by man and their effects on
the world's oceans.
Marine Aquaria: students were
introduced to the basic operations
of saltwater aquaria. Topics ranged
from set-up and maintenance of
the tank to collecting techniques
for fish and invertebrates.
They not only learned a great
deal about Florida's marine life
and ecological marvels, but also
had a great time.

10 a.m. morning service with guest
speaker Rev. Tom Biles. After
services and Bible Study, the con-

Dollar Stretchers
Hotel Parking
Hotel valet parking is becoming
increasingly expensive. It's $65
per day or more in some areas.
If you're at a conference or busi-
ness meeting, this can really add
up fast. When making your hotel
reservation, ask for the names of
parking garages nearby. It costs
$20 for three nights in a parking
garage right across the street from
a luxury hotel near the ballpark in
San Diego. And you know where
your car is, which is not always the
case with valet parking.

The panel also is expected to field
questions from attendees, Cooley
added.
After a 30-minute refreshment
break, the first section of mini-
workshops moderated by Crystal
Snodgrass, vegetable agent with
the Manatee County extension ser-
vice, is scheduled for 10: 20 AM. In
20-minute segments anchored by
UF and University of Georgia sci-
entists in disciplines related to plant
production a variety of inter-con-
nected subjects will be discussed,
she said. Dr. Keith Schneider, of
the UF/IFAS food sciences depart-
ment, will address "Food Safety
Issues in the US and What We're
Doing About It in Florida," for ex-
ample, while Dr. Gary Vallad, of the
GCREC faculty, will be on tap to
overview the challenges of manag-


ing bacterial diseases in tomato and
pepper growing, Cooley noted. In
addition, Dr. James Price, GCREC,
takes on the destructive Spotted-
Wing Drosophila and its "Impact
on Small Fruits." The various spe-
cialists also will answer questions
from the audience, she added.
During generally the same time
frame, at least two of the center's
40-seat trams will take visitors
to the various growing and prov-
ing fields, beginning at 10:30 AM,
Cooley said. On the schedule are
advances in cultural practices such
as soilless growing conditions for
tomatoes, peppers and strawberries,
along with demonstration of chemi-
cal control of early blight and man-
agement of tomato bacterial spot.
Other tours will highlight the man-
agement of whiteflies and advances
in the weed sciences and several


tomato variety trials, including the
large rounds, plum and grape/cher-
ry sizes.
After stoking up at the com-
plimentary lunch spread during
a 90-minute noon break, attend-
ees can choose between a second
round of educational seminars and
the several field tours through the
experimental growing areas main-
tained by the research center as part
of its mission to develop and test
various growing methods.
Alicia Whidden, a Hillsborough
County vegetable agent, will mod-
erate Session II slated for 1:20 PM
to deal with fruit crops and with
farming chemicals, Cooley said. Dr.
Jonathan Crane, a scientist from the
South Florida IFAS research center
at Homestead, will cover the po-
tential for tropical and sub-tropical
fruit crops and Dr. Bielinski Santo,


on the GCREC faculty, is to review
improvements in management of the
water approach to freeze protection
for strawberries. During the same
session, Dan Botts, of the Florida
Fruit and Vegetable Association,
will cover new regulations for use
of fumigants and Dr. Andrew Mac-
Rae, GCREC, is to review proper
selection of alternatives to methyl
bromide for elimination of weeds.
For those more interested in the
field tours, the morning schedule of
field visits will be repeated during
the early afternoon, beginning at
1:30 PM, Cooley added.
The last educational hour of the
day is given over to the bugs that
bug many farmers, she said. On tap
are Dr. David Schuster, GCREC,
talking about challenges and pos-
sibilities in managing the whitefly,
and Dr. Doug Reston Gaskill, au-
thor of the US Department of Ag-
riculture Cooperative Agricultural
Pest Survey, who will preview po-
tential future pests impacting Flor-
ida. Another USDA scientist, Dr.
Scott Adkins, also will overview
the invasive exotic viruses in veg-
etables during the session opening
at 3:10 PM.
Another new feature of the 2010

at least, didn't know anyone better
off to tell them that. No one thought
it odd that the new baby slept in a
dresser drawer instead of a crib.
Bruce earned his graduate degree
and his career rose rapidly. He
went from teaching to becoming a
school principal to taking a promis-
ing position at a college. He and
Esther still had dreams. Maybe
someday they would go to New
Guinea to help people. Maybe
someday Bruce would walk away
from the increasing stress of his in-
creasingly important jobs to start a
small business, or even to write for
the local newspaper. Someday.
Someday ended for Bruce in May
1978. He was 43 years old.
Children generally don't notice
a love story between their parents,
but the love between Bruce and Es-
ther must have been extraordinary.
Esther never found a man to re-
place him. Today she has her chil-
dren, grandchildren, memories and
a few of what singer Jimmy Buf-
fett described as "false echoes" on
the radar of her mind but only
a few.
Over the course of their years,
Esther and Bruce touched hun-
dreds, if not thousands, of lives. He
at the college and she as a teacher
for special needs children. Their
oldest son followed their footsteps
to become a teacher. Their young-
est daughter followed their inspira-
tion and became a social worker,
helping people who have difficulty
helping themselves. Their oldest
daughter recently retired from a ca-
reer in business. She is a talented
artist something Bruce encour-
aged her to be. She is now taking
him up on that encouragement with
both color and words. Bruce and
Esther's fourth child, the one born
during an adventure out west, has
been blessed to have inherited the
spirit of their adventure and is liv-
ing the life of Bruce's dreams with
a love of sailing and with find-
ing contentment in simply writing
these words for the local news-
paper. I am blessed to be living
Bruce's "someday."
The Claremont school is gone,
only the floor of the gymnasium
remains in the town that is not even


tion for UF graduate students and
candidates for doctoral degrees
in the wide range of plant related
sciences. The advanced degree
candidates have produced posters
pertaining to their specific areas
of study and these colorful visions
will be displayed on the front patio
of the center throughout the day,
she added. One or more winners are
to receive a $500 cash reward an-
nounced at the end of the day.
Throughout the day, dozens of
vendor booths also will be open and
staffed on the grounds north of the
main center building, Cooley said.
Opened in 2005 and consolidat-
ing two ag centers formerly located
in Manatee County, the Gulf Coast
REC at Balm now has a faculty of
16 scientists conducting research,
teaching, administering programs
and hosting visitors from other na-
tions. Nine different disciplines are
represented on the faculty, from

ics to entomology and nematode
investigations, from soil and water
sciences to landscaping methods.

on a highway. Passenger trains no
longer run between Aberdeen and
Claremont, or in any town in South
Dakota. The Navy did not forget
Bruce. At his funeral, they pre-
sented Esther with a U.S. Fag in
recognition of his service, despite
that it lasted only a few weeks.
So much has changed in such a
short time. At the time of his death
at 43, my Dad seemed so much old-
er and wiser than I am now at 47.
My faith in God tells me that there
was a reason my Dad left at such
a young age. With all due respect
to Mr. Shakespeare, I don't be-
lieve we are merely players on the
world's stage. But I do know that
we are only here for a short time.
The lesson from my father is that
my time should not be spent with
my face twisted in anger and my
voice hoarse from shouting. Noth-
ing is gained by living in the nega-
tive. Another Englishman, Charles
Dickens once wrote that "it was the
best of times, it was the worst of
times." Despite what others may
say, I know these are not the worst
of times.
My Dad passed away when I was
15-years-old. Even as an addle-
brained, rebellious adolescent, I
never doubted that he knew ev-
t i\ Iliiii He was the smartest man
I have ever known. He was also
gentle, funny and compassionate,
like his father. Years ago bracelets
bearing the acronym WWJD (What
Would Jesus Do) were in fashion. I
often think that question to myself
in life decisions. But I also wonder
WWBD. What Would Bruce Do?
I forget sometimes but what
Bruce would do is the right thing
- not as a player on the stage but
as a good and caring person. The
world has changed but the ideals
of human decency have not. Bruce
and Esther's dreams did not come
true in the ways in which they envi-
sioned. Seeing my family, knowing
the lives they have touched, I know

to pain-free legs.
The signs of varicose veins aren't
always obvious. Even if you don't
see veins on the surface of your
legs, there's a good chance your
discomfort is a symptom of vein
disease. Half of all men and
women over 50 are affected by
a vein problem. And without
intervention, the problem will
only get worse. Fortunately, the
solution is a simple one.
Here's all that's
standing between
you and healthier,
younger looking legs:
All veins have valves. Healthy
valves keep blood flowing only
upward and support the weight
of the column of blood. When

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 costof $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.

Closest deep water port to the Panama Canal, the Port of Manatee (above) on the Gulf
of Mexico at the mouth of Tampa Bay is preparing for a future focused on container-
ized shipping. Dredging to create Berth 12 (lower left, near orange crane), the port's
new facility designed to handle "Panamax" freighters, is to begin in February. And a


52-acre container terminal is planned adjacent to the new berth (grassy area, lower
center). The port has been awarded nearly $10 million in federal grants from the U.S.
Department of Transportation. It also is anticipating an increase in tug boat and barge
traffic across the Gulf. PHOTOS COURTESYTHE PORT OF MANATEE


Eight million Floridians live within two
hours of Port Manatee, making container
deliveries convenient and efficient.


Port Manatee houses two Gottwald mo-
bile harbor container cranes. These
multi-purpose cranes handle containers
and general cargo with a lifting capac-
ity of 100 tons at 80 feet and a read of
13-containers wide.


* By MELODY JAMESON
mi@observernews.net
PORT MANATEE Anticipating in-
creased demand for containerized shipping
services, this centrally located commercial
Florida port is poised for multi-faceted
development on three fronts with the help
of nearly $10 million in federal grants.
And net results for the region, including
Hillsborough's South County, could be
both an increase in jobs and a decrease in
truck traffic.
The preparations include deepening and
extending the port's Berth 12, a poten-
tially doubled barge shipping cycle across
the Gulf of Mexico and taking a 52-acre
container terminal from planning to reality.
Port Manatee is the deepwater port located
closest to the expanding Panama Canal.
Some of its preparation is underway, some
is getting ready and some is pending go-
ahead from the federal agency holding the
purse strings.
Dredging Berth 12 to a depth of 41 feet is
expected to begin in February, Jill Vander-
Pol, port spokesperson, said this week. It
is estimated that before the dredging work
is completed, about 1.1 million cubic yards
of excavated material will be removed to a
certified uplands disposal site. The dredg-
ing project is expected to be completed,
including certifications, in August, 2011,
she added.
'The Great Lakes Dredge and Dock Co.
was awarded the contract for the work in
July after a rebidding process which shaved
$2.3 million or 14 percent off the origi-
nal bid. The bid accepted by the Manatee
County Port Authority is for $14.8 million.
The project is part of the port's 11-year,
$200 million expansion plan.
When finished, Port Manatee's Berth


12, with a depth of 41 feet and lengthened
to 1,600 feet, will accommodate the class
of 965-foot-long, ocean-going freighters
known as "Panamax," VanderPol said. A
larger class of freighter, drawing about 50
feet and known as "post-Panamax," also
sails the world's oceans, she noted, but
no Florida port currently has the depth to
handle them.
While the dredging project is ongoing,
Port Manatee also is looking ahead to a
potential doubling in barge traffic across
the gulf encouraged by a substantial
grant from the U.S. Department of Trans-
portation. The Florida port, along with the
Port of Brownsville, Texas, with which it
consistently does business, was awarded a
grant totaling $3.34 million in marine high-
way funds in September by the maritime
administration in the federal agency.
Of this total, Port Manatee received
$750,000 now earmarked for construction
of two new barge ramps along with stack-
ers, VanderPol said. The remaining $2.6
million went to the Texas port where it also
is to be applied to two new barge ramps,
as well as to the purchase of another barge
and tug boat.
Adding a second barge/tug combo to
the container shipping route between Port
Manatee and Brownsville can potentially
double the shipping capacity because it can
effectively cut the sailing cycle from 10 to
five days, she noted.
Longer range effects of this increase in
container shipping capacity are reductions
in diesel fuel use by overland trucks and in
highway miles traveled by the trucks each
year. SeaBridge Freight, headquartered at
Port Manatee and operator of the cross-gulf
container route, estimates that the exist-


ing single tug/barge service saves 70,000
gallons of truck fuel with each voyage and
annually eliminates about 18 million truck
miles along the I-10 corridor, VanderPol
said. As container shipping across the gulf
increases, the truck fuel and truck miles
savings figures are expected to go up too,
she indicated.
The port spokeswoman could not pin-
point when the second tug/barge combina-
tion would go into service but suggested
the number of added gulf crossings would
match the demands for service.
The third piece in the port's planning for
containerized shipping services is a 52-acre
container terminal adjacent to Berth 12.
The site is unrelated to the disputed Inland
Ports proposed container terminal once
planned near U.S. 41. VanderPol said she
expects the new terminal to be constructed
in two phases the first a 32-acre project
followed by development of the last 20
acres.
However, taking the terminal from plan-
ning to reality presently depends on specif-
ic information about use of another multi-
million dollar grant to the port from the
maritime administration. The $9 million,
being made available to the port under the
federal agency's Transportation Investment
Generating Economic Recovery Program,
also known as the TIGER II Discretionary
Grant Program, has been awarded but any
specific restrictions on its use has not yet
been received, VanderPol said.
As soon as that information is at hand,
she concluded, the port will begin apply-
ing the funds wherever appropriate as it
continues its focus on container shipping
services.

Have you ever seen
Purple peppers, striped tomatoes,
bi-colored eggplants...all are part
of the offering at Backyard Produce,
opening on Nov. 4.
The new produce stand features
locally grown produce. Some of
the offerings
Share grown on
site, includ-
ing heirloom
tomatoes, red,
yellow and
even purple peppers and eggplants.
The remaining inventory will be
sourced 'as local as we can get it,'
says Jayna Hamel, co-owner with
her husband, Bernie.
Their plan is to source fruits and
vegetables from Hillsborough Coun-
ty first, Florida second, and the south-
eastern U.S. third. While seasonal of-
ferings may require that some staples
come from further away, the Hamels
are committed to only selling U.S.-
grown fruits and vegetables.
"We have an abundant harvest of
fruits and vegetables available sea-
sonally right here in Hillsborough
County. And because we are lucky


a purple pepper?
enough to live in the Sunshine State,
we have access to the freshest and
highest quality winter produce grown
in the U.S. right here in Florida. Our
full- and part-time residents have
told us time and time again they want
to access the locally grown produce,
and that is what they will find every
day at Backyard Produce," Bernie
Hamel adds.
Jayna Hamel explains that locally
grown produce is better for the con-
sumer, better for the environment,
and better for the local economy.
"The sooner a product is consumed
after picking, the more nutritious it
is. Less travel means fewer emis-
sions from trucking the produce from
farm to warehouses and beyond. And
of course, supporting area farmers
helps the local economy."
Backyard Produce is located at Els-
berry Nursery Farms, on the north-
west corer of Big Bend and U.S.
Highway 41 in Apollo Beach. Hours
are from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m Tuesday-
Friday; and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Saturday.

Boat Ramp expansion completed at E.G. Simmons Park


RUSKIN Hillsborough Coun-
ty recently completed a major ex-
pansion to the boat ramp at E.G.
Simmons Park in Ruskin. The
newly completed project doubles
the boat ramp launching capacity
at this popular park to provide ac-
cess to Tampa Bay and the Gulf of
Mexico.
This park improvement provides
a new 40-foot ramp and two float-
ing docks that increases safety and
decreases the time needed for wa-
ter -enthusiasts to launch and load
their watercraft. The new ramps
and docks mirror the existing boat
ramp facility at the park.
The Capital Improvement Proj-
ect (CIP) was joint-funded with
a grant from the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission. Cost of the project was
$476,500. Construction began in
July and was completed on sched-
ule and on budget in October.
Boat launch fees at County ramps
are $5 a day or $100 for a yearly


pass. Passes are available at the
Park Office located at 15502 Mor-
ris Bridge Road or by download-
ing an application from the Parks,
Recreation and Conservation Web
site at: www.hillsboroughcounty.
org/parks/resources/forms/Annu-
alPass.pdf.


The Parks, Recreation and Con-
servation Department manages
many boat ramps that provide ac-
cess to both fresh and salt water
recreation areas. For a list of boat
ramps visit http://www.hillsbor-
oughcounty.org/parks/parkservic-
es/BoatWeb.pdf.

Sign revamped
MITCH TRAPHAGEN PHOTO
In a continued effort to improve Ruskin's image, Paul B. Dickman,
Inc, has taken on the responsibility of painting the "Welcome to
Ruskin" sign. The sign, located on Dickman property, and lighted at
Dickmans' expense, was installed by the Ruskin Chamber of Com-
merce. Berg Quality Craftsmen, Inc. spent several hours cleaning,
prepping, painting and sealing the sign in mid-October. The results
are definitely eye-catching and attractive.

"My family's been fishing for eight It's just a way of life.
That's why we've got to get this cleaned up.
Pete Floyd
Commercial Fisherman,
Pascagoula, Mississippi



When the spill hit, a lot of people said it would be the end. BP said
they would try to make this right. But how was an energy company
going to help a fisherman?

Putting People to Work
The first thing they did was rent my boat and hire me to help with the
cleanup. They made up my losses so I could pay my bills. And they
worked with all kinds of people here from fishermen and shrimpers
to restaurant owners. It helped us keep our businesses open. And
it helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.
~Pe te Floyd
Co mecil iseran
Pacgua 5ss~p

When th pl ialto epesadi ol eteed si



















it helped us make ends meet so we could support our families.


Staying for the Long Haul
When they capped the well in July and finally killed it, we were all
relieved. But would BP stick around? Well, they did. The beaches are
clean and we're back on the water fishing so things are getting a
whole lot better. They are still here and have said they will keep
working for as long as it takes.

Getting Back to Normal
BP asked me to share my story with you to keep you informed. If you
still need help, please call 1-866-448-5816 or go to bp.com. If you're
wondering what you can do, well the next time you're shopping,
buy a little Gulf seafood. There is none finer.
