Board Presi-
dent Karen
Ryan con-
finned this
week the
Action was
set in mo-
tion during
an especially-called meeting last
week when a sub-committee was
formed to begin immediately de-
veloping a RFP (Request for Pro-
posal) outlining the audit scope.
Asked about the vote break-
down, the president said the audit
motion passed with a quorum pres-
ent on a three to one basis, with
three abstentions. Directors Mari-
lyn Balkany, Eileen Courter and
Ryan supported the motion, Nancy
LaCrosse opposed it. Abstaining
were Mike Albanese, Larry Hen-
best and Kurt Nolden. An eighth
board member, Paul Thibault, was
not present. Although appearing
fractured, the vote is valid and ac-
ceptable under Robert's Rules of
Order, Ryan noted.
A long-time patrol member and
new board officer, Ryan has been
calling for an audit and fresh start
for one of the community's most
beloved volunteer organizations
whose management records show
repeated problems, including vio-
lation of federal law, financial in-
consistencies and attempted end
runs around current by-laws.
An RFP is expected by the end of
the month. The audit is expected to
cost the not-for-profit organization
valued at more than $1 million
several thousand dollars.

lations of backflow prevention
devices in residential areas and
on inspections of such devices al-
ready installed remains in effect in

Lots of applicants, but


where are the jobs?


* By PENNY FLETCHER
pen ny@pennyfletcher.com
SOUTH COUNTY - Some
people who advertise for help are
shocked at the number of people
who apply. It makes you aware
that the unemployment figures be-
ing reported aren't a real number.
They don't include those whose
unemployment checks have run
out, or those who didn't qualify
for them.
Two weeks ago there was one
opening for a sales clerk in a thrift
store. In the first two days after
advertising the position, there had
been 83 responses.
By the time I got around to in-
terviewing Jay Sparkman who had
run the ad two days after that, the
number was above 90 and still
climbing even though the position
had already been filled.
The job was for the Nearly New
Thrift store which is a project of
the Interfaith Council of Sun City
Center and uses its proceeds for
charitable causes.


In the summer the store is only
open Saturdays from 9 a.m. to
noon. Still, that did not deter ap-
plicants. They wanted anything
they could get.
"The stories I heard were pretty
depressing," Sparkman said. "Peo-
ple with four kids, out of work.
Saying they would do anything."
They came in all ages, from
teenagers to the elderly, Spark-
man- who serves as the president
of the Interfaith Council- said.
The week before that I had a talk
with Therese Monaghan who does
the hiring for The Alley at South-
Shore in Riverview. She showed
me a box full of applications and
told me she gets between 50 and
75 every 10 days to two weeks.
But that wasn't anything com-
pared to what I learned from Kim
Scott, human relations manager
for Caspers Company that oper-
ates 50 McDonalds restaurants
across Tampa Bay, seven of which
are in the South County/Brandon

New SouthShore Chamber of

Commerce comes together


* By MELODY JAMESON
mj@observernews.net
APOLLO BEACH - Dedicated
to the business interests of the dis-
trict and aiming to be a political
voice for the area, the new South-
Shore Chamber of Commerce has
been formally initiated.
An "Ambassador Breakfast"
here Friday morning officially
marked unification of two former
community chambers - Ruskin
and Apollo Beach - as a single,
larger organization with defined
missions on behalf of the two dis-
tinct business centers.
For the time being, both chamber
offices will remain open, continu-
ing to function as before the two
memberships voted to merge their
efforts and resources, said Melanie
Morrison, now executive director
of the new entity.
How long this arrangement will
be maintained is a matter of mon-
ey, she indicated. Offices of the
former Ruskin chamber on U.S.
41 at 4th Avenue are provided as
a donation to the group, Morrison


noted, while the presently rented
quarters occupied by the former
AB chamber in a business com-
plex further north on U.S. 41 are
paid for with chamber revenues.
The new chamber's top lead-
ership team remains essentially
as before, with Patti Thornton,
a SunTrust banker in Ruskin, as
president, Joel Meek, with All Bay
Insurance Group, AB, as president
elect, and Tony Zipperer, owner
of Zipperer's Funeral Home in
Ruskin, as treasurer.
The roster of vice presidents
serving the business group also re-
mains unchanged. They include:
Ron Simpson, Weichert Realtors,
AB, charged with marketing and
the ambassadors program; Brandy
Evans, Kennco Manufacturing,
Ruskin, presiding over educa-
tional partnerships; Tom Belisle,
RBC Bank, Sun City Center, lead-
ing economic development; Sher-
ell Bennett, South Bay Hospital,
responsible for legislative affairs,
and Tony Morejon, Hillsborough

New technology saves recording studio fees


* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
RIVERVIEW - Mark OS-
haughnessy knew he didn't have
the $50,000 or more it would take
to make a CD of his music in a re-
cording studio.
After all, when you rent studio
time, you have to have (or
rent) < .i)ilihing else; in-
cluding other instrumental-
ists and vocalists if you need
them for your sound.
But the life-long musi-
cian who plays benefits,
block parties and regularly
at the River of Life Church
in Tampa where he has also
worked with youth, decided
he wanted to make his own i
CD anyway.
It involved learning com-
puter programs and new
technology as well as writing all 12
songs on the CD, O(/il...si, ,
Life and Death.
OShaughnessy - who does not
use the traditional Irish apostro-
phe after the 0 in his name - and
his wife Tanya have lived in a
quiet Summerfield neighborhood
of Riverview since having their
home built to their specifications
in 2005.
He came to the United States in
1991 from Regina, Saskatchewan,
and now he and Tanya, a school
teacher, have two little boys.
Although neither of his parents
played instruments, they insisted
that both Mark and his sister learn
organ. He didn't like it. His sister
did, and played for many years.
But he discovered from that early
experience he may not have learned
until much later in life: not only did
he like music, he had an ear for it.
'"I play some from music and
some by ear," he told me in an in-


terview the week his CD was fin-
ished.
What fascinated me about it was
his determination.
He worked to make the CD en-
tirely on his own, with no help
from other musicians, vocalists or

Life and


recording experts.
"It took about three years from
start to finish," he told me. 'The
CD has both religious and secular
(non religious) music."
In order to get it to sound like
there are many instruments and
vocalists, he had to run about 24
tracks. That meant he started with
his basic vocal, reran the track
while playing each instrument, then
did his own harmonies; in unison in
octaves higher and lower than the
original track.
"I probably ran through it 20 to
24 times," he said.
Each time he would use a new
instrument he would have to reset
the computer programs and sound
equipment to accommodate it and
make sure the music stayed in just
the right spot.
Some of the instruments he played
during the takes are keyboard, elec-
tric guitar, acoustic guitar, straight
guitar, and bass.

Then he would do the vocals to
make it sound like a choir. But it's
all a one-man job.
"I estimate from the time it took,
and dl ihini.' that was involved,
that it would have cost about
$50,000 in a studio to make. I put
in about $5,000," he said.
Until recently technology was not
advanced enough for anyone to do
such a thing.


During the process he also used
his photography skills and made
the cover completely by himself.
He took photographs and then
worked with them in Photoshop
and Illustrator.
'"It's amazing what can be accom-
plished with those programs with a
camera that costs just a couple of
hundred dollars," he said. "You can
do just about an thliini. with photo-


graphs on the computer now, even
age them if you like."
For now he will continue booking
block parties, festivals and private
affairs around town but will also be
selling his new CD on Amazon and
iTunes as well as his own Web site,
www.markallensongs.com.

After three years of hard work and countless hours of critiquing, editing and re-recording, the first
full CD by Mark Allen O'Shaughnessy has been finished. A combination of blues-driven, rock and soft
piano, this Riverview musician shows how it is possible to use new technology to make demo CD's
without paying recording studio fees and thousands of dollars in other up-front costs that have been an

Check on how your life is going


I think it is important that people
in all walks of life occasionally
take time to assess how their lives
are going and whether or not they
are progressing in a proper direc-
tion. No matter what your job may
be, if you consider yourself
to be a professional, it --
is even more important
that you ask yourself the
following questions:
* Do you generally K
find yourself calm and
collected or at odds with S
those around you? How Positi
well do you get along Talk
with people? By Willi
* Do you speak well of


your organization and those who
work with you? Are you enthusi-
astic about what you are doing?
* Do you show confidence in
yourself by being willing to take
the lead on certain projects, and
make decisions without having to
constantly ask for authorization?
Are you decisive when the situa-
tion calls for it?
* Do you have written plans that
you refer to often-plans that you
follow but are willing to modify
when the need arises? Are you
capable of making course correc-
tions without completely losing
control?
* Do you read literature covering
your field, and regularly study new
techniques that will help you to be
more successful in what you do?
Are you current in your field?
* Do you regularly analyze your
mistakes so that they become les-
sons that promote growth? Are
you willing to admit a mistake if
you make one?
* Do you give your employer a
full day's work for a full day's pay?
Are you worth what you are being
paid, and would you pay you your
salary for doing what you do?
* Do you maintain a high ethical
behavior in all your contacts with


your customers or co-workers?
Are you the kind of person whose
word is always good?
* Do you contribute to your com-
munity by using your time and
talents to make it a better place in
_ which to live? Are you


ive

am Hodges


an asset to your city or
a liability?
* Do you set aside
specific times to
engage in activities
with your family? Are
your children able to
say, "Mom and Dad are
always there when we
need them"?
* Do you make every


effort to see that your appearance
is neat, clean and appealing? Are
you someone who would be rec-
ognized as a professional in your
field by the way you are dressed?
Yes, they are hard questions. If
you can't answer them all in the
affirmative, just keep working
at it until you can. Professionals
are rarely perfect; they just work
toward perfection. If you go for
improvement, you cannot help but
be better with time.

Hodges is a nationally recog-
nized speaker, trainer and syndi-
cated columnist. He also hosts an
interview-format television pro-
gram, Spotlight on Government,
on the Tampa Bay Community
Network which airs Mondays at
8 p.m. and Wednesdays at 7:30
p.m. (Bright House channel 950,

The good son?


This was hard. As we drove
away from The Meadows, I told
my wife Michelle to take the route
that would pass by her apartment.
Sure enough, there she was in the
window, waving goodbye.
The Meadows is an assisted liv-
ing facility where Mom moved two
months ago. Her new apartment is
very spacious and very nice with
a private deck off the living room.
It is, however, much smaller than
her house and her condition pre-
vents her from filling it up with the
things she loves in life.
Most of those things, the result
of a lifetime of collecting the an-
tiques that she loved so much, are
now laid out on the floors of her
house like some cheap market
bazaar. To see her century-old,
handmade, wooden furniture and
her precious and very fragile glass
items set into piles like so much
unwanted merchandise was highly
upsetting for me. That's not how it
is supposed to be.
But that's how it is right now. She
can't have too much clutter in her
apartment, she can't have wall-to-
wall antiques because it is impor-
tant that her new home not present
obstacles to how she gets around
- sometimes with a walker. From
a physical standpoint, she needs
the space more than she needs her


stuff. But from an emotional stand-
point, she needs her stuff.
We spent an afternoon bringing
over her extensive collection of
Shirley Temple items.
For years, that was her
hobby, her mission re-
ally. At first, she bought -
anything and o .i .hin. .
but as the collection i-
grew, she became much
more selective. What she
has now is a collection Obser
that would rival a mu- By Mitch
seum, filled with unique mitch@obsi
and interesting things -
some of which may be the only ar-
tifacts remaining in existence. Af-
ter all, how many Shirley Temples
finely carved and painted from
soap could still be around after
nearly 80 years?
After an afternoon of moving
and carefully stowing away boxes
and excess Shirleys, her entire
collection was once again in one
place, now packed into a closet
in her apartment. Beyond Shirley
Temple, there is much more stuff
that had meaning for her spread
out on the floor of her house. We
spent the evening slowly walking
through the house grabbing the
things she wanted. With the larger
items we'd stop and ask, "Are you
sure you have room for this?", but


V;

erv


most things just went into boxes
to be taken to her new apartment
without question. As we finished
up, she remarked to Michelle, "I'm
not dead yet."
- My brother feels bad
about it, I think. He
tried to move every-
* . thing that had meaning
to her - he thought he
had. But she tells each
ati of her kids something
ationS slightly different. In his
rophagen case in particular, as
ernews.net her primary caregiver
and an exceedingly
busy man with little free time for
himself, almost certainly she just
didn't want to ask him. She didn't
want to add to the burden that he
already carries. He has no reason
to feel bad, but he does. He wants
her to be happy. He also wants her
to be safe.
There is a fine line between safe-
ty and happiness. There is a fine
line between the autonomy that
Mom still wants and the protection
and safety that her children want
for her. Mom's stuff, her antiques
and knickknacks, give her happi-
ness, but they also have the po-
tential to become a hazard to her.
Is depriving her of the things she
loves in the name of safety the best
way to ensure the happiest, longest

life she can have? There's no good
answer to that. The only thing that
is known is that each of her chil-
dren wants her to be both happy
AND to be around for as long as
possible.
It's hard to leave. I wonder what
my dad, now gone for 33 years,
would want. Often I think that if
I were a good son, I'd pack up our
lives and move to that little town in
Minnesota to be there to help her
and my brother with the day-to-
day needs of living. I'd be there to
spend time with her. I'd be there to
swap out antiques that she doesn't
feel comfortable enough to ask my
brother about. I'd be there when
the fear of the unknown begins to
take over, ruining days that should
not be ruined. She's not dead yet.
She deserves to enjoy to the fullest
the time she has left.
I wonder why I didn't plan to
see Mom's life left in boxes on
the floor when I was in my 20s
and she in her still-youthful 50s.
But then, I realize that I could not
have because it would have been
unimaginable then. It is unimagi-
nable now.
The antiques themselves, spread
out on the floor, somehow haunt


me. When they were made, life
was so much harder, so much
less luxurious than it is today; but
somehow the answers to life's
questions seemed easier, clearer.
Families stayed together because
they had to. More often than not,
they needed each other to survive.
Besides, where else would any-
one go? Today that's not the case.
Kids move away and build their
own lives far from home, rely-
ing on modem transportation and
technology to bridge the gap that
they themselves created. It seems
life is easier today, but the ques-
tions are much more difficult. The
answers certainly are.
I tell myself that I need to try to
be a good son. I need to try to be
a good brother, a good husband,
a good reporter, a good friend.
When I fail at any of those, I tell
myself to try harder. But what I re-
ally need to do is not to try but to
do. The question is, 'What should
I do?" I know there are many other
people out there in my situation,
far away from home with an ag-
ing parent who increasingly needs
help.
What should anyone do?

My Mom has begun the process of giving away many things in her
life. Among them was an American Flag, given to her at my Dad's
funeral in 1978 by an officer from the U.S. Navy. On July 4, 2011, his
flag flew proudly over my sailboat.

Need gives birth to new

business
Sometimes adversity turns to opportunity. That was the case with Ann
Chambliss. In January 2011, as a bride of 4 years, she was living the good
life as a sales representative for a local company when she fractured her
wrist. During her recuperation she learned to rely on her family, specifi-
cally her husband and 95-year-old mother, for help doing the everyday
tasks that she and all of us take for granted. It was like when the electric
goes off. . . .we still try to turn on the stove, adjust the TV channels or
flick the lightswitch even though we know the electric is out. We're just
used to the conveniences being readily available and being able to do
these tasks ourselves without having to ask for help. Ann realized, how-
ever, that the time comes when all of us may require personal services for
reasons of age, injury, mobility or even an exceptionally busy schedule.
With this realization came the birth of Shopping Made Easy.
"For a number of years my mother has not been able to drive leaving
the responsibility of shopping on my shoulders," admitted Ann. "Wheth-
er it's clothes, food or personal items, I have found that I am a good
decision maker." If she could do this for her mother why couldn't she
do the same for other people who needed a little extra help. By her own
admission she enjoys building relationships and learning what a person
likes. She also has an understanding of the needs of others having been in
similar circumstances herself. A shopping service was the perfect busi-
ness for her skill set and personality.
As a personal shopper Ann can assist you with groceries, personal/hy-
giene items, clothing/shoes, pharmacy pick-ups, pet supplies and person-
al services. Shopping Made Easy is simple, efficient and easy as 1-2-3.
1. Call Ann at 813-245-8228 or email her at apucinol@verizon.net to
schedule a date and time for her to shop.
2. Make a detailed list of items for her to pick up.
3. Items delivered to your doorstep or inside plus help putting your
items away.
Ann is available 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday thru Friday for shopping. She
charges by the hour for her services and how long you need her is com-
pletely up to you. As an aside there is no trip charge within 30 miles of
travel. Whether you need a temporary or permanent shopper, Shopping
Made Easy is a good choice for improving your quality of life. Pick up
the phone today and call Ann at 813-245-8228. *

Good deeds never go unnoticed


After donating over 400 pounds
of onions to the Meals on Wheels
food bank, Palmetto High School
FFA was gifted with twelve boxes
of over-ripe bananas, courtesy of
Wal-Mart. Originally, the bananas
were scheduled to be fed exclusive
to the schools livestock, but Mrs.
Julie Tillett was able to rescue
enough bananas to teach students
how to prepare several dishes using
bananas as the main ingredient.
The students were treated to the
opportunity of preparing, banana
pancakes, banana pudding and
'The King's' favorite, grilled pea-
nut butter and banana sandwiches.
Mrs. Tillett said, "This was an
eye opener for me, we spend a lot
of time teaching students to grow
fruits and vegetable, but almost
none teaching them to cook and
be good end users of agricultural
products. Next year we may have to
throw in a few recipes and several
days learning to prepare them."
The lesson that has been learned
by Palmetto High School Ag stu-
dents is that when they are involved
with their community, their com-
munity becomes more involved
with them... good deeds never go
unnoticed!

to our friends in Great Britain,
but let's face it: we didn't declare

asked. Perhaps. But saying 'Happy
4th' just doesn't do it for me.
Fourth what? On that day in 1776,
our founding fathers did what had
never been done in history, and
gave us a document that has never
been written before or since by
anyone. It has guided our country
for 235 years and let us to be the

I do it proudly! In fact, this year,
I went a little overboard: flag-

So, is was with much pride that
I invited my Riverview friends
down here to Sun City
Center to see our own
50th anniversary fire-
works display. They


had planned to see one
of the big ones at either
Channelside or St. Pete

them this one would
rival either of those,
and we were certainly


NOT disappointed.
The amazing display I saw last
night was one of the most beauti-
ful I have ever seen, and that sen-
timent was shared by everyone
around me. Throughout the entire
25-minute event, I heard numerous
rounds of clapping, lots of oohss"
and "aahs" and even a few car
horns beeping their applause. The
displays were huge, bright, and
simply fantastic. Congratulations
to the team who coordinated and
executed the show!

not sure how I will word the sign

this great country. If they let me
continue to make the signs...

Revised transportation plan includes
freight, roads, airports and seaports
In an effort to ensure that its plans continue to meet the changing needs
of the region, the Tampa Bay Area Regional Transportation Authority
has adopted an update to its Regional Transportation Master Plan.
The update follows an extensive public engagement effort that reached
thousands of people in seven counties and generated hundreds of com-
ments on transportation issues. Adopted in 2009, the Master Plan ini-
tially was focused on creating a regional transit network to ensure the
seamless movement of people and goods across county lines.
Rather than a rewrite of the original plan, the Master Plan update
incorporates a broader spectrum of transportation elements, including
the regional roadway network, freight network, airports and seaports.
The updated plan also addresses the element of air quality, a key factor
in future transportation funding.
The plan was created by the Florida Legislature in 2007 to plan and
develop a multimodal transportation system to connect the seven coun-
ties of the Tampa Bay region-- Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee,
Pasco, Pinellas and Sarasota counties. For more information, visit www.

How work can affect your Medicare decisions


Dear Savvy Senior,
I'll be turning 65 this fall and
I'm planning to work for a few
more years. Do I have to sign up
for Medicare if I am still work-


ing and receiving health
insurance ;lih., ,it1 my
employer?
Working Retiree

Dear Retiree,
The rules for enroll-
ing in Medicare can be
confusing. But when you
postpone retirement past
age 65, as many people


are doing these days, it
becomes even more complicated.
Here's what you should know.
The Basics
Let's start with a quick review.
Remember that traditional


Medicare has two parts: Part A
which provides hospital cover-
age and is free for most people.
And Part B, which covers doctor's
visits and other medical services


and costs $115.40 per
month for new enroll-
ees in 2011. If you're
collecting a Social
Security check, your
Part B premium will
be deducted automati-
cally every month. If
you are waiting to col-
lect Social Security,
however, your Part
B premium will be


billed to you quarterly.
Enrollment Rules
If you plan to continue working
past the age of 65 and have insur-
ance from your job, your first step


is to ask your benefits manager or
human resources department how
your employer insurance works
with Medicare. In most cases, you
should at least take Medicare Part
A because it's free. But to decide
whether to take Part B or not, will
depend on the size of the company
you work for.
If there are fewer than 20
employees in the company,
Medicare will be your primary
insurer and you should enroll in
Medicare Part B during your ini-
tial enrollment period -- a seven-
month period that includes the
three months before, the month
of, and the three months after your
65th birthday. You can sign up
online at socialsecurity.gov, or call
800-772-1213.
If you miss the seven-month


Does your loved one require more

dementia care than you can provide at home?


Are you doing the right things?

As it progresses, are you concerned for their safety?

Are they stimulated and engaged at home?


Sun City Senior Living offers your loved one a secure
environment, with specially-trained caregivers, innovative
activities and compassionate services.
* Assistance with activities of daily living
* Medication management
* Secured safe environment
* Housekeeping and laundry services
* Activity program specific to dementia care
* Meals, snacks and special diets * Much, much more!

sign-up window, you'll have to
wait until the next general enroll-
ment period, which runs from Jan.
1 to March 31 with benefits begin-
ning the following July 1. You'll
also incur a 10 percent penalty for
each year you wait beyond your
initial enrollment period, which
will be tacked on to your monthly
Part B premium.
If, however, there are 20 or more
employees in your company, your
employer's group health plan will
be your primary insurer. If this is
the case, you don't need to enroll
in Part B when you turn 65 if
you're satisfied with the coverage
you are getting through your job.
But if you do decide to enroll in
Medicare, it will supplement your
employer insurance by paying sec-
ondary on all of your claims. In
most cases, you should probably
not drop employer coverage for
Medicare. If you choose to take
Medicare and drop your employer
insurance, it may be very diffi-
cult for you to re-enroll in your
employer plan should you decide
to do so later.
In either case, you'll qualify
for a special enrollment period,
which will allow you to enroll
in Medicare without penalty as
long as you sign-up within eight
months after you lose your group
health coverage or you stop work-
ing, whichever comes first.
Drug Coverage
You also need to verify your pre-
scription drug coverage. Call your
benefits manager orinsurance com-
pany to find out if your employer's
prescription drug coverage is con-
sidered "creditable." (Creditable
prescription drug coverage is one
that is considered to be as good as
or better than the Medicare pre-
scription drug benefit.) If it is, you
don't need to enroll in a Medicare
Part D prescription drug plan. If it
isn't, you should purchase a plan


during your initial enrollment
period or you'll incur a premium
penalty (1 percent of the average
national premium for every month
you don't have coverage) if you

Atlantis: Astronauts arrive in Florida; Twitterers pack for launch


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
KENNEDY SPACE CENTER
-The four astronauts scheduled to
fly the last shuttle mission arrived
at Kennedy Space Center in Florida
on the Fourth of July. Commander
Chris Ferguson, Pilot Doug Hurley
and Mission Specialists Sandy Mag-
nus and Rex Walheim arrived from
Johnson Space Center in Houston
on Monday afternoon carrying U.S.
Flags and the knowledge that their
mission will be the last of a 30-year
run of uniquely American space ex-
ploration and accomplishments. The
space shuttle has served as a symbol
of the United States to the rest of the
world.
STS-135 Atlantis is scheduled to
lift off on July 8 at 11:26 a.m. from
Kennedy Space Center. It will be
the 135th shuttle mission. NASA
is quick to point out that the return
of Atlantis to Earth after the 12-day
mission will not spell the end of
human spaceflight. During a press
conference on July 2, NASA Ad-
ministrator Charles Bolden assured
Americans that the United States
would continue to lead the world in
human space exploration. Plans are
underway for a possible return to


the Moon, or a mission to Mars or
an asteroid.
That future, however, may be years
away. For now, the entire world is
focusing on Atlantis. By some esti-
mates, a million people are expected
to crowd into the Titusville area to
watch the historic final launch of a
shuttle. Tickets to view the launch
from both the Kennedy Space Cen-
ter Visitor's Complex and from the
NASA Causeway are sold out. A
clear and free view of the launch


will be available from Space View
Park in Titusville, although arrival
at the park at least six to eight hours
early is recommended. The shuttle
will also be visible for many miles
up and down the coast from NASA
and even from the Tampa Bay area
if the weather is clear.
For some lucky Twitter users,
however, the launch will be some-
thing they will never forget. NASA
has invited 150 followers of their @
NASA Twitter account to view the

* Continued from page 1
Hillsborough County, pending re-
vision of applicable rules by Flori-
da's Department of Environmental
Protection.
The above-ground backflow
preventers, designed to protect
the integrity of a public potable
water supply by stopping back-
flow of contamination into the wa-
ter system but found to be easily
sabotaged, subject to theft for their
metal content and far from break-
down proof, once were required
by county ordinance at all home
sites with alternative water access.
Communities such as Sun City
Center and Apollo Beach became
key targets for the required instal-
lations - at costs between $500 and
$900 - because home landscaping
there often was irrigated from the
numerous existing lakes and pri-
vate wells.
Dave Brown, a SCC retiree and
consumer advocate, initiated a
campaign questioning the previ-
ous backflow prevention program;
an effort that led to public hearings
around the state and consideration
of changes to state regulations gov-
erning backflow prevention which
has been underway for about 18
months. Hillsborough County sub-
sequently halted the required in-
stallations and inspections.
Meanwhile, Paul Vanderploog,
director of the county's public
works department, last week re-
iterated the county "has not per-
formed residential inspections on
alternative water source installa-
tions since the abeyance, and also
has not required the normal yearly
backflow device testing for those
units already installed."
It is important that homeown-
ers understand the situation, not-
ed Brown, now a member of the
county's cross connection control
advisory board. Unscrupulous
plumbers have been known to
solicit inspection assignments,
charging from $50 to $850 for the
unnecessary service.
Once FDEP completes overhaul of
its rules pertinent to alternative wa-
ter sources, Vanderploog said, Hills-
borough will rewrite its ordinance
for enforcement on that basis.
...AB Rezoning
Another large contingent of
SouthShore Falls residents is ex-


pected to appear before Hillsbor-
ough's Board of County Commis-
sioners on July 19 when a rezoning
matter comes up for final review.
The community has been object-
ing for months to proposed devel-
opment of the former AB Rescue
Squad site on MillerMac Road
for multiple buildings of business
or professional offices. The site is
adjacent to a Tampa Electric Com-
pany power substation and close to
their backyards. When it last came
to the BOCC, commissioners re-
manded it for another look based
on environmental concerns. A re-
zoning hearing master twice has
ruled in favor of the project.
Bruce Davis, a resident and com-

arrangements have been com-
pleted for transporting the dozens
of SSF homeowners committed
to protesting a traffic-generating
development in the middle of a
residential area with ecologically
sensitive wetlands and uplands.
...Ethanol Plant Permits
Permitting for a multi-million-
dollar corn-to-ethanol plant pro-
posed for acreage east of U.S. 41
and south of Kracker Road in Gib-
sonton has been ended.
In a June 22,2011, letter to Hills-
borough's Environmental Protec-
tion Commission, John Jones for-
mally withdrew applications for
air and water permits on behalf of
the prospective developer, Con-
struction Tradition Group, a Polk
County-based investors group.
The letter gave no reason for the
withdrawal.
The developers had proposed to
bring in large quantities of feed-lot
caliber corn from South Florida
and process it during around-the-
clock shifts to 200-proof ethanol
then shipped out as additive to
motor fuels.
Highly flammable ethanol, how-
ever, also is questioned as a fuel
additive because critics contend
it destroys some marine engines
and ultimately actually increases
the cost of treated gasoline to all
consumers. Supporters of the proj-
ect touted the anticipated 150 new
jobs but others expressed concerns
about noise and air pollution as
well as high water consumption.

On Independence Day,
a community gathers for
breakfast
On July 4,2011, Sun City Center, along with people from around South
Hillsborough, gathered for breakfast. Hundreds turned out for what
was not only a celebration of the nation's independence, but also
a celebration of the 50th anniversary of Sun City Center. The lines
stretched through the Community Association building for the freshly
made pancakes, eggs and sausage. The pancakes provided the
white, blueberries and strawberries provided the blue and red. Just
in case anyone should forget the occasion, not that anyone would,
tiny American Flags were included at no extra charge.

Wildlife sanctuary opens to the public


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
WIMAUMA - Elmira danc-
es when she sees Deb and Sally
walk up. The large bear jumps off
her wooden perch, throws herself
against the fence, and then jumps
back up on her perch making little
noises. She is so happy and excited
to see them that she can barely con-
tain herself. Elmira's joy is in the
people she loves, and in the people
who love her.
Only a year ago, Elmira's Wildlife
Sanctuary was in survival mode.
The staff was focused entirely on
the day-to-day needs of feeding the
animals in their care and in main-
taining the property. They wanted
to do things right, they wanted to
do right by the animals, and they
worked hard to never let the unend-
ing stress of financial pressure im-
pact the quality of their care.
Fast forward to this year with the
all-volunteer staff succeeding on
all accounts. The grounds are im-
maculately kept, the cages are set
up and maintained, and they have
been given the blessing of the U.S.
Department of Agriculture to open
the facility for public tours. The
financial pressure remains, but
volunteers, local businesses and
a community organization have
stepped in to help. All of that has
made a difference for the property
and the staff, who use money from
their own pockets to keep things
running, and mostly for the ani-
mals. It has made a difference for
Elmira the bear.
We live in a strange new world
filled with information to the point
of overload. Images of virtually
anoi liii on earth are available
simply by typing a few words into
Google. It is a world in which it is
easy to forget that something like


standing in front of a live tiger is an
amazing, awe-inspiring experience.
But stop and think for a moment or
two to take in the coloring of the
fur, the light in the eyes, the spots
and stripes, the whiskers, the enor-
mous paws, and the fangs (oh yes,
don't forget the fangs). Take all of
that in while letting the overload of
the 24-hour news cycle fade away.
Make no mistake; standing in front
of a live tiger IS an amazing expe-
rience.
Now thanks to the dedication of
the staff, thanks to the Community
Foundation of Greater Sun City
Center, thanks to the benefits host-
ed by the Copper Penny Restau-
rant, and thanks to local Walmart
stores for providing leftover meat,
you can stand in front of a live ti-
ger by making the short drive to the
sanctuary located near Wimauma.
But don't come with the wrong ex-
pectations. The animals are not ex-
hibits; the sanctuary is not a theme
park. For 47 exotic animals, it is
their home - their forever home.
Instead, come to see them and
marvel at their spirits and in their
beauty. Come to learn about them.
Come to help them.
"It's not set up to look pretty,"
said Elmira's Volunteer Coordina-
tor Deb Kaprive. "It's not set up to
showcase the animals. More often
than not, they will be napping in the
afternoon when people come. But
it is important that we can invite
the public to come here. It's one
thing to say that this is our mission
to save these animals, it's another
thing to be able to show people
how and what we are doing."
The USDA has very strict guide-
lines on how things need to be done,
including c , i 1hini from labeling
buckets, cleaning the cages, and en-
suring the safety of the public. You


won't be allowed inside the cages
to pet a tiger or a lion, but you can
revel in their spirits and in their
majesty. You can see them, as they
will be able to see you. You can de-
cide if you want to help them.
"Everybody that is on this prop-
erty is a volunteer," Kaprive con-
tinued. "It's a difficult thing; we
have to screen the applicants.
Some people just want to come
to pet a leopard and that's not go-
ing to happen. Some people think
it's all going to be fun and games,
like a petting zoo. It's dirty work
and it's hard work, but the dirtiest
and the hardest chores are the best
and the most rewarding because
that's where the animals deal with
you. They will see you coming and
they will greet you. No one gets
paid, but when you see an animal
chuffing and rubbing up against
the fence when they see you, then
you know they just want to see you,
well there's your bonus."
Some people may visit and think,
"I can't stand to see these animals
in cages." The animals at Elmira's,
however, were born in captivity and
cannot be released into the wild. As
one volunteer put it, they would die
horrific deaths if returned to the
wild. They were taught to depend
upon people. It is all they know.
And here in their forever home, they
will feel the love of those who care
for them. They will nap contentedly
with full bellies while visitors pass
by in the afternoon sunshine. They
will spend their lives knowing they
are cared for and are safe.
"I hope people come here and see
what we are really about, that our
mission is to provide and care for
these animals for [the rest of] their
lives," Kaprive said. "I know there
are animal lovers out there that
want to be part of it. It's very sim-


ple to be part of it. It's easy to be
a volunteer even if you don't want
to clean cages. You could throw a
[benefit] party and be a volunteer,
having a cocktail party saying that
instead of bringing wine or flowers,
bring $10 for the animals - even
if you had 10 people bringing $10,
you'd have a good time and $100 is
a lot of money to us."
The sanctuary also offers mem-
berships for as little as $25 per
year.
"We call it the 'bear' minimum
membership," Kaprive said. "But
any amount helps us. It helps us
to pay for the food and pay for the
rent. Donations go directly to the
care and feeding of the animals.
There are no paid employees."
On the tour, you may hear about
the bobcat that suffered a head in-
jury and lost sight in one eye. Un-
able to fend for herself, she found
her sanctuary at Elmira's. How-


ever, you might not see her. She is
terrified of people, and she is still
adjusting to her new home. There
are others like her. Here, the needs
of the animals come first. While
the animal's needs are being met,
the sanctuary's dreams remain out-
standing. When enough money or
another grant comes their way, they
hope to complete a large, fenced
play area for the big cats. The cages
were built with back doors to give
the cats some freedom to roam.
Money and some hard work are all
that stand in the way of making it
a reality.
The ears of the large white tiger
were flat; her eyes were peeking
over the galvanized tub filled with
water. The bath was a relief from
the afternoon heat and in her mind,
she was invisible to the approach-
ing strangers. But when she saw
volunteer Sally Haase walk up,

What you may not see on the tour is a small bobcat named Ollie that
has recently come to Elmira's due to suffering a head injury and
losing sight in one eye. He is still adjusting to his new home and is
terrified of people. In this sanctuary, the needs of the animals come
first.

Reddick Elementary 4th graders Emily Hernandez and RubyAguilera
are having a Shrektacular time on the field trip that took 110 music
students and teachers to see 'Shrek the Musical,' thanks to a grant
from the Community Foundation of Sun City Center and the Helen
and Hadley Hill Fund.

A Shrektacular day!
The staff and students at Reddick Elementary School in Wimauma
give a rousing standing ovation to the Community Foundation of Sun
City Center and the Hadley and Helen Hill Fund for providing a grant
to take 110 Reddick Elementary students to see the Broadway National
Touring company's production of the Broadway smash hit "Shrek the
Musical" on May 7 at the Straz Center in Tampa.
Reddick's Music Specialist, Ellen Kleinschmidt, who wrote the grant
said, "I have dreamed about taking my students to a Broadway musical
for years and finally decided that dreamers must be doers or wonderful
things like this would never happen."
"Highlights of the day were many, from the first class coaches complete
with restrooms and a DVD player to the unexpected bonus of seeing two
dolphins swimming in the Hillsborough River as if they were escorting
us to the theater; to the show itself and meeting the actors afterwards;
to goodie bags complete with Shrek rings and necklaces and yummy
snacks and finally back to the waiting arms of excited families.
The trip to the theater was a Shrektacular day that will live on and
on in the hearts and minds of some very special Reddick Elementary
students for a lifetime to come thanks to the generosity and vision of
the Community Foundation of Sun City Center Hadley and Helen Hill
Fund."

Oliver is a charming Shepherd
mix who was found wandering all
alone. Volunteers quickly found
out that he is one of the sweet-
est dogs ever. He is a little shy
upon approach, but given a few
minutes to get to know you, he
will turn into a lover boy. Oliver
knows how to sit, give paw, and
has recently learned to walk on
a leash. Oliver seems to be fine
around most dogs but if given the
choice, he would choose a human
as his companion.
As part of his adoption, Oliver
will be neutered, microchipped,
and brought current on his shots.
DOB: Dec. 2, 2010


Sonic is a handsome male orange
tabby. He was relinquished by his
elderly owner who could no longer
care for him. Sonic is a friendly boy
as any volunteer can attest and he
will come up for a petting as soon
as approached. In his spare time
he enjoys being on the screened-in
lanai and knows the word 'lizard.'
Give Sonic a forever home! He's
one Super-Sonic cat.
Sonic is neutered, up-to-date
on shots, litter-box trained, and
microchipped. Estimated DOB:

Derelict crab trap removal planned
during temporary closure of blue crab
fishery
On Saturday, July 16, Tampa Bay Watch, along with community vol-
unteers will participate in a crab trap removal effort of six locations
(Belleair Bluffs, Upper Tampa Bay, Alafia River, Cockroach Bay, Boca
Ciega Bay and Demen's Landing) in Tampa Bay due to the regional
closure of blue crab fishing. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) has mandated a temporary closure for the harvest
of blue crabs from traps in all waters of Broward through Pasco counties
including the waters of Tampa Bay.
FWC is requiring regional closed seasons for the blue crab fishery to
help facilitate efforts to identify and retrieve lost and abandoned blue
crab traps in state waters of Florida. The local closure is from July 10-19
and extends out to three miles offshore and apply to both commercial
and recreational free standing traps (blue crab traps attached to private
property (i.e. docks) are excluded from the closure). All commercial and
recreational traps left in state waters during the ten day closure will be
considered derelict and can be removed. It is important to note that even
though the fishery will be closed, not just anybody can remove a trap.
Anyone interested in being involved must be a part of an organized effort
that has been authorized by FWC. Three regional, 10-day blue crab trap
closures take place in designated areas in Florida in odd-numbered years,
and three other closures occur in even-numbered years.

area.
"We had a Hiring Day in April
and did face-to-face interviews
with almost 9,000 people, around
200 per store," Scott said. "It was
amazing. They were so glad to re-
ally get an interview. Most of the
application processes now are on
line, or where you just fill some-
thing out and leave it. We're always
taking those, but this was different
because they actually got to talk to
somebody."
Scott said Caspers has noticed a
lot of change in the last three years.
There has been a much lower turn-
over and there have been a lot more
applicants at all 50 stores.
"Kids get their start at McDon-
alds. They get their first jobs with
us and learn about working," she
said.
But now many retirees and older
people have those jobs, and Scott
said she notices a greater availabil-
ity with older workers.
"They have sort of edged kids
out of their part-time and summer
work because older people who are
out of work need more hours. They
are also able to work more flexible
hours."
Scott said they also see many
retired people who cannot live on
their incomes and work at least
part-time.
While less turn-over is good for
companies, Scott said she is sor-
ry that more teens aren't getting
the experience first jobs can give
them.
There are some fields though
where there is a higher demand,
said Melanie Morrison, executive
director of the new SouthShore
Chamber of Commerce that began
its merger of the Ruskin and Apollo
Beach chambers July 1.
"The seasonal companies are do-
ing very well, like the air condition-
ing industry in the summer. But I'm


seeing pet grooming and care do
well too. People have to take care
of their pets. Bars usually do well
in a poor economy but lately I've
seen some of those struggling."
Child care facilities on the whole
are doing well when people are out
looking for work, she said.
"Whenever a big company choos-
es our area like B&M Precision in
Ruskin or when Sam's Club came
in, we make a big deal over it be-
cause they provide so many jobs,"
Morrison said.
Health care is a big leader in hir-
ing.
Natalia Diaz, marketing director
for South Bay Hospital, had quite a
bit of advice to offer.
"Currently we are seeing a high
volume of applicants in entry level
positions and new grad RNs. Posi-
tions that are high in demand are
pharmacists, pharmacy techs, labo-
ratory, and rehabilitative therapists.
We have also seen that it takes
longer to fill positions at the direc-
tor level. We think this may be be-
cause during these economic times
many people are playing it safe and
choosing to stay at their current
jobs longer, so the pool of candi-
dates is much smaller."
Diaz suggested that anyone in-
terested in obtaining work in the
health care industry contact a local
hospital and inquire about volun-
teering, internships or shadowing
opportunities.
"It could also be beneficial to
contact your local universities and
community colleges to find out
what the prospective opportunities
in health care will be in the future,"
she said.
With Baby Boomers turning 65 at
a rate of 7,000 a day for the next
19 years- a figure supplied by the
AARP in an interview in April-
health care looks like a good bet for
a long time to come. *

* Continued from page 1
County government, Tampa, over-

One change has
transpired within
the ranks of other
board members,
however, Morrison
said. Greg Conley,
former AB cham-
ber president and
operator of TSI in
Apollo Beach, has
been named to the p",
governing board.
He joined Larry
Brooks, A&A .
Mortgage Funding, MELANIE MC
SouthShore and
Tampa, Jason Chilson, a member
of the Hillsborough County Parks,
Recreation and Conservation staff
at E.G. Simmons Regional Park,
Mike Langjahr, Sun City Center
Funeral Home, Charlie Lewis,
Christ Community Church, AB
and Gibsonton, as well as Gary
Shumacher, Kaeser and Blair, Inc.,
AB.
The chamber's governing board
as now constituted includes a
mixture of business types and lo-
cations, Morrison noted. Plus,
in January, three board seats will
open up, available to accommo-
date any additional changes that
might be needed, she added.
Chamber staff, in addition to
Morrison, includes Linda Thibault
and Suzanne Ramella, as execu-
tive administrators.
The new SouthShore cham-
ber's next scheduled event is an
8 AM coffee on Tuesday, July 12.
The SouthShore chamber's first
"Business After Hours" function,
sponsored by Zipperer's Funeral
Home, Pearson Capital, A-ability
and DJ Gary Stebbins, is set for
5:30 PM Wednesday, July 20,
Morrison said. Winner of the AB
Honorary Mayor's race also is to
be announced on the latter date,
she added.
In addition, both former cham-
bers maintained websites which
continue to be available on the in-
temet, each with a link to the other,
Morrison said. A new website for
the SouthShore organization is be-
ing built, she added. *
As for the membership dues


Dr. Robert A. Norman

structure, it ranges from $100 an-
nually for an individual member-
ship to $500 for
a company of
more than 50
employees, with
$50 increases
effective with
Sthe increasing
employee in-
crements in be-
tween. In other
, ' words, Morrison
/ said, the mem-
-/' ,. bership fee for a
I company of one
IRISON to five employ-
ees would be
$200 and $250 for a company of
six to 15 staffers. The annual dues
also are prorated through the year,
she added.
Morrison, an 11-year AB resi-
dent who grew up in Brandon,
was graduated from Hillsborough
Community College and worked


in upscale hotel branding and mar-
keting as well as in her husband's
boat charter business, spoke with
experience about the historical and
demographic differences in the
two communities now represented
by a single chamber. But, she as-
serted, "the vision is the same.
We're very confident we can mesh
successfully, maintaining the pride
taken in each distinct community
while working together to drive
more business development to the
area.
Now an organization of 400
members, the new chamber also
is in position to be a politically
responsive group on behalf of the
entire SouthShore area, she added.
The SouthShore chamber joins
a substantial number of other, like
named business groups located
around the country, according to
the internet.

Scholarship Sunday celebrationI St. John the Divine to hold VBS


The United Community Church,
1501 La Jolla Avenue, celebrated
Scholarship Sunday in June. Three
graduating seniors from Lennard
High School and their families
were invited to the service. The
scholarship recipients were
introduced to the congregation and
spoke about their chosen fields.
A reception was held in the
Great Hall following the service
and it was a true joy for everyone
to meet and visit with the young
women. Yvonne Alvarez will
receive a two-year scholarship
to HCC in nursing as a Pediatric
Nurse Practitioner. Kierra Burton
is receiving a two-year scholarship
to HCC for Geriatric Nursing
Home Administration. Lizbeth
Sanchez is receiving a two-year
scholarship to HCC for Veterinary
studies.
A Seminary student, Angela
Wells is the recipient of a one-year
scholarship for Master of Divinity
to Union Theological Seminary,
New York. Her grandfather, Frank
Pirazzini was Interim Senior
Minister and Associate Pastor at
United Community Church in
the 90s and Angela attended as a
young person.
The Scholarship Committee is
comprised of Chairman Jo Prater,
Hazel Martin, Jeffery Austin,
Helga Martin , Clare Fenney and
Carolyn Deming.


With joy you will draw water
from the wells of salvation. In
that day you rill say: Give praise
to the LORD, proclaim His name;
make known among the nations
what He has done, and proclaim
that His name is exalted. Sing
to the LORD, for He has done
glorious things; let this be known
to all the world.
- Isaiah 12:3-5 NIV

Aaron Gillespie in concert


RIVERVIEW - Famed Chris-
tian artist Aaron Gillespie will be
in concert at South Bay Church,
Wednesday, July 27, at 7 p.m.
Tickets are on sale now for $10
each in advance from the church
website at southbay.cc, or at the
church office Sunday through Fri-
day, 13498 U.S. 301 S, Riverview,
FL 33578, just south of Big Bend
Road. Tickets will also be avail-
able at the door on the day of the
show for $12.
Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. with
refreshments and merchandise for
sale. Proceeds from tickets and
refreshments go to the South Bay
Church youth group camp fund.
Gillespie is already one of the
most dynamic, outspoken, and
visible artists in Christian music
today. It's just that the redheaded,
27-year-old isn't always where one
might expect to find a faith-based
performer, a fact that defines his
sense of ministry and what his solo
album Anthem Song is all about.
A standout drummer by age 14,
Gillespie was invited in 1997 to
join Underoath, a Christian met-
alcore band that would chart the

Aaron Gillespie,
"Anthem Song"
gold-selling records They're Only
Chasing Safety (2004) and Define
the Great Line (2006). The group's
aggressive sound-often tempered
by Aaron's comparatively softer
additional vocals-and steady
mainstream success has led to a
passionate fan base and provided
many unique outreach opportuni-
ties on tours.
Despite the public outcry, Aaron
left Underoath on good terms in
2010, pursuing a cleaner alterna-
tive rock sound as lead singer of
The Almost, a band that has reg-
istered 21 million plays on MyS-
pace, gained MTV2 airplay, and
recently toured with Switchfoot.
Even as The Almost continues
its rise, Gillespie makes another
sudden turn, doing Anthem Song
alone.
With Chris Tomlin melodies and
Billy Corgan vocal inflections, you
can hear Gillespie reaching out
on "Earnestly I Seek Thee"- a
gentle acoustic worship tune until
it erupts with raw force into a dis-
tinctly hard-edged arrangement.
Aaron, who is on the volunteer
staff at his local church, has a vi-
sion for when he tours in support
of Anthem Song to help other
places of worship welcome those
who wouldn't normally feel com-
fortable being there. He says when
people don't feel good enough
to join God's family because of
whatever sin is in their lives, that's
when they should be running to
the church. Indeed, we should all
be there.




THE
SOWER
Michael A Guido, D.D.
I Metr, Georgia


While a soldier was seated at
a table, a couple walked in and
asked, "May we sit with you?"
"Yes," he answered.
All during the meal, the wife
who had a long face, wasn't
humbly grateful, she was
grumbly hateful.
Wanting to change the subject,
the soldier asked, "What's your
business?"
"I'm a manufacturer," said
the stranger, "and so is my
wife. But she manufactures
misery for herself and others."
Don't be maliciously
miserable. Be contagiously
cheerful. A religion that makes
you look sick can't cure the
world.
That's why our Lord says,
"Be of good cheer."
