The club spends each year working on charity quilts with the Veterans Hospital in Tampa being their primary focus, making red, white and blue-themed quilts for veterans at the hospital. Club members speak of being overwhelmed by how much receiving their own quilt can mean to a veteran. The Kings Point Quilters meet every Tuesday from 1 to 3 p.m. in the North Clubhouse at Kings Point.

For 18 million of us, it is a place to live, to work and, occasionally, to play. For another 82 million people, it is a place to visit for shopping, Disney World, hitting the beach or just to escape a cold winter for a week or two. But Florida is far more than beaches, strip malls and theme parks. While the waterfront is stunning, some of the most beautiful parts of the Sunshine State are not only off the beaches, they are also off the beaten path. The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is one such place. It began, appropriately enough, as an abandoned RV park and was purchased by Hillsborough County in 1995 under the Environmental Land Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP). Today it is a model of the beauty and serenity of Florida that you wont necessarily find in a travel brochure. It By PENNY FLETCHER penny@observernews.netRUSKIN American Legion Post 389 is grateful for being allowed to use the facilities of VFW Post 6287 but members know its time to get their own place. The Legion started its Ruskin post five years ago and has since grown to more than 130 members. While the VFW is for U.S. military veterans of all branches who have fought on foreign soil, Legion membership is for veterans who are, or were in the service in any branch of the military during a conflict, whether or not they served in combat. The two groups are closely knit, and in Ruskin, they have operated joint fundraisers during the time theyve shared the VFWs facility at 5120 U.S. 41 in Ruskin. We have members of all ages, said Janet Taylor, Commander of Legion Post 389. There are some active duty returning now, and some from the time during World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and both Gulf wars. The members range in age between 18 and 90 but age doesnt create a barrier, Taylor said. VFW membership at the Ruskin post is around 700 according to VFW Commander Chris Young. Both organizations work for local veterans and their families, but we also work for the communities, Taylor explained. Although they are part of national organizations, both may set their own priorities on a local level. Since they are sharing the VFW building, theyve done a lot of joint fundraisers and plan many more during the 2011/2012 season. The next event will be the Veterans Day Parade Nov. 12 starting at Grannys restaurant at 11 a.m. and ending at McDonalds on 19th Avenue.See AMERICAN LEGION, page 12Welcome back with ANEW look at Florida!is also a shining example of what communities working together can achieve. Both the Ruskin Community Development Foundation and the Community Foundation of Greater Sun City Center have invested, along with the county, into making Camp Bayou one of the increasingly rare and beautiful places that is a showcase of Flor idas incredible diversity. Nature has quickly reclaimed her prize and there is nothing to suggest an RV park ever existed there. This weekend, Camp Bayou will give everyone the opportunity to experience a taste of the real Florida with a program known as A Natural Education Weekend (ANEW). It begins on Friday with sessions that include everything from how to explore the outdoors responsibly, to enjoying the outdoors with children, to lessons on setting up a camp given by the Ruskin Boy Scout troop. The See WELCOME BACK, page 11 By MELODY JAMESON mj@observernews.netSUN CITY CENTER Five experienced candidates now are competing for election here as directors on the communitys top administrative board. The five Al Alderman, Howie Griffin, Jane Keegan, Rob King and Paul Sasville are vying for three open seats on the SCC Community Association Board of Directors which will be filled by CA members marking ballots for the annual election in December. Each has specific experience either locally or in former home cities serving in an elected position on a volunteer board. The candidates whether longtime residents or relative newcomers also have particular objectives they want to attain on behalf of the community theyve chosen to call home. Additionally, they all have keen interest in a proposed comprehensive capital improvements program soon to become a community-wide topic of discussions. Alderman, a mechanical engineer from Connecticut, has served one three-year term on the nine-member CA board and now is after a second term to both continue work with Sun City Centers 150 clubs and to guide the ship of community safety through the current rough economic seas, he said this week. During his first term, Alderman has been the boards key liaison with the large number of organizations engaged in wide ranging activities geared to resident interests, focused on helping them update their governing by-laws to meet contemporary standards as those documents have come up for review. To date, the official documents of at least 25 clubs have been examined, standardized and completed, he said. The former engineer has succeeded with another detailed task guiding creation, perhaps for the first time, of current and accurate club membership lists to assist the board in carrying out one of its primary responsibilities management and maintenance of common areas. In his second term, Alderman indicated he wants to see through work begun as chairman of an ar chitectural committee concerned with the design and appearances of any buildings ultimately included in the communitys capital improvements program. Asked what he considers the greatest challenge for CA board directors, he noted it has to be time; too little time to get everything done. The best part of directorship is working with the membership, he added, I love the job and I hope to be returned to it.See SCC CA ELECTION, page 22

And, residents this week will have opportunity to weigh in on the environmental question bearing on one of the most prominent commercial locations in the community. Developer GC Partners, LLC, is seeking a brownfield designation for the former site of a gasoline service station on the northwest corner of the Pebble Beach Boulevard and S.R. 674 intersection, according to Mary Yeargan, brownfields coordinator with Hillsboroughs Environmental Protection Agency (EPC). Operators of the service station, built early in the communitys history, had sold products and services under a number of major oil company banners, most recently with the BP label. The station has been closed and available for sale for a year. At least one auction aimed at selling the site was conducted there but did not produce a sale when no buyer stepped up to negotiate a price in the asking range of $600,000 for the property of a little over a half acre. A community meeting, required as part of the process involved in gaining a brownfield designation, has been scheduled for 6 PM, Thursday (November 10) at the Sun City Center Inn on the east side of Pebble Beach Boulevard. Residents will be able to learn more about the designation and the developers plans during the meeting, Yeargan indicated. The site was cleared of debris from the razed filling station building, tarmac and pump island during the last month In the last week, the underground gasoline tanks also were excavated and removed by a Tampa firm, Progress Engineering, headed by Bridget Morello, P.E. Both Yeargan and Morello, when pressed by The Observer, acknowledged their information is a Chase Bank branch is being planned for the site. However, both also cautioned that they have nothing in writing to substantiate that projection and that it is possible the developer and the bank management have not yet executed an agreement cementing the arrangement. Brownfields are defined by the Florida Brownfield Redevelopment Act as sites that are generally abandoned, idled, or underused real properties where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by actual or perceived environmental contamination. Sites of gasoline service stations, with their underground gasoline holding tanks that can fail with age or damage, qualify under the statute, Yeargan indicated. The purpose of the act is to assist property owners with remediation of environmental contaminations to that the property can be safely redeveloped. The law also provides certain advantages for the developer or builder who undertakes a redevelopment project involving a brownfield site, Yeargan noted. Among those advantages are voluntary clean-up tax credits applicable to Florida corporate income taxes and in an amount up to $500,000, the EPC coordinator noted. In addition, such tax credits, if earned but not used, can be sold one time to achieve the benefit, she said. The concept is supported by a portion of the gasoline taxes paid by consumers at the pump when retail purchases are made. Rather than wait for the state to underwrite a site clean-up after the brownfield designation is granted, Yeargan explained, this developer is stepping up, willing to pay the clean-up costs at the front end, and then, upon gaining the designation, probably either claim the allowed credits or make use of the credit sale option. Named brownfields to distinguish such sites from greenfields, the program initiated in the late 1990s has proved highly useful in getting assistance for properties with environmental contamination issues but still suitable for productive functions, Yeargan said. Such properties are not contaminated to any degree approaching the Super Fund level, she indicated. EPC does not issue the brownfield designation. Yeargan said she reviews the environmental data and county commissioners make the final recommendation as part of their frequent routine land use evaluations. As efforts pertinent to the former filling station site are proceeding, another change in the local banking scene is on the horizon. The SCC area Superior Bank branch in the Kings Crossing shopping center anchored by Publix Supermarket is slated to begin operating under a new brand this week. The Superior network, based in Birmingham, AL, was acquired by Community Bancorp LLC in April and now is merging with another of the holding companys banking networks, Cadence Bank, N.A. The blue and gold Cadence Bank signage, replacing the red and white Superior logo, is expected to be in place by Friday, Nov. 11. Managers with the former Superior Bank have notified their customers in writing of the pending name change and promised that while the brand is different, nothing related to account numbering, loan arrangements, debit card use, account statements or hours of operation will change. Still another recent alteration among SCC financial institutions was takeover of the troubled SouthShore Community Bank by Texas-based American Momentum Bank (AMB) during the summer. The former community bank branch on the south side of S.R. 674, immediately behind the CVS Pharmacy, now carries the AMB logo. In the same timeframe, the former Wachovia Bank branch, in the banking cluster at the southeastern edge of the SCC Plaza, began sporting the Wells Fargo insignia and signage, capping off last years integration of the smaller Wachovia network with the multi-faceted Wells Fargo combine. If the Chase Bank branch is built on the former service station site as projected, it will become the 11th financial institution offering retail banking services in Sun City Center. Copyright 2011 Melody Jameson MELODY JAMESON PHOTOPredicted to become the site of a new bank branch, the former gasoline service station at Pebble Beach Boulevard and S.R. 674 recently was reduced to rubble in a matter of hours and cleared of all debris along with its underground gasoline storage tanks over a matter of days. An out-of-state developer is seeking a brownfield designation on the property from Hillsborough County which would provide financial assistance for redevelopment of the approximate half acre in a prime location in the middle of Sun City Center. Both Hillsborough County and private company personnel working with the application say they think a Chase Bank branch is planned for the site.

I say chosen because that is the case for most of us. I will eliminate those who are mentally infirm or those who have yet to reach the age of maturity. There may even be a few others who may claim exemption, but I repeat, most of us choose the lives we live. A primary example of changing your world by the way you think is the way many Asians have bettered their lives in this country. Most came to this country without the ability to speak our language, or if they could, it was in a limited fashion. It would have been easy to fall prey to the idea that discrimination was the basis for all their troubles. Indeed, that might be the case for some of them, but most of the Asians who came to this country spent time learning the language, learning business skills, and, in general, working very hard. Two of my Asian friends who run a restaurant routinely put in more than 14 hours per day. They changed their world by the way their thoughts and actions. On the other hand, I overheard a man having dinner in my friends restaurant say to his wife, It is awful how these Chinamen come into this country and take jobs away from real Americans. Theyre the reason I cant find work. I dont know who he was trying to fool. I know that man. He is about 75 pounds overweight and someone would have to wrestle him to the ground and tie him to get him to stay on a job By William Hodges site, let alone work. His world will never change because he will never change his thinking. He will always blame someone else for his lack of success. Another example of changing your world by changing the way you think are those people who refuse to be classified and pigeonholed into any specific subgroup of the whole. Woodrow Wilson said, You cannot become thorough Americans if you think of yourselves in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American. I have very successful friends of all races, and they do not want to be thought of as hyphenated Americans. Their thinking process directs their actions to be such that they demand and get respect. They claim only the rights of citizenship and neither accept or expect special privilege. A final example of changing your world by changing the way you think are the pioneers in lifethose people who break new ground and refuse to live with the status quo. They are the free spirits who let their minds soar. They are the trail blazers and the explorers in all disciplines. They are the Fords who gave us wheels, the Edisons who gave us light, the Wrights who gave us the wings to fly, and thousands of other inventorsboth men and womenwho were dissatisfied with something and changed it. They changed not only their world with their thoughts, but changed ours as well.

Governor Rick Scott recently signed the proclamation, thereby continuing a vital time-honored tradition undertaken by Floridas governors to officially proclaim November as Manatee Awareness Month. A primary purpose of this designation is to heighten public awareness about the importance of protecting Floridas official marine mammal, which the proclamation states, is a distinctive and valuable beloved natural resource, and further declares that mana tees face the risk of extinction due to human related threats includ ing the loss of warm water winter habitat. Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club, is grateful to Governor Scott for supporting the need to safeguard the well-being of Floridas endangered manatees. Save the Manatee Clubs mission is to protect manatees and their habitat for future generations, says Rose. To accomplish this, we work closely with federal, state, and local governments, as well as with the public at the grass roots level, and support policies based on the best scientific data available. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public to be directly involved with manatee protection. Free public awareness waterway signage, banners, boat decals, and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which boldly cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below, can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be present. Shoreline proper ty signs and matching boat decals are also available. Both feature the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser vation Commissions hotline number (1-888-404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Familyfriendly 2-foot by 3-foot outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal, and county parks; marinas; and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. Requests for the free banners, signs, decals, and posters can be sent via e-mail to education@ savethemanatee.org or by call ing toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646). Manatee Awareness Month helps to save manatee lives, says Rose. We must continue to expand efforts to raise awareness about the presence of manatees in our waters and to reach more people, in Florida and outside the state, about how to help prevent manatee injuries and deaths. Our behavior has a direct impact on the manatees survival, and the publics ongoing participation in manatee conservation is essential for the welfare and protection of the species.

Taking crime awareness seriouslyFrom instruction on avoiding frauds to definition of intelligence led policing, Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office detectives and deputies endeavored to cover it all recently when the countys top law enforcement agency conducted a crime awareness seminar in Sun City Center. Sheriff David Gee (above) highlighted the program held in the retirement centers Community Hall, underscoring how his offices multi-phased approaches have reduced crime statistics in the area. At points in the program, residents were encouraged to ask questions as Chris Girard, (below) SCCs community resource deputy (CRD) kept the microphone moving. About 150 area citizens heard deputies and detectives explain the fine points of economic crimes, the ins and outs of policing at the community level and uses of the types of information offered on the HCSO website.MELODY JAMESON PHOTOS

X 10 7 6B 7 10 9Free boat safety inspections are held every Saturday by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 75 in Ruskin for recreational boaters. These safety inspections take about 15 minutes and are available from 10 a.m. to noon at Simmons Park in Ruskin on the first and third Saturday of the month and at Williams Park in Gibsonton on the second and fourth Saturday. For more information, call (813) 645-6984. Free boat safety inspections held treatments are covered. You also need to be aware that of the eye care services that are covered by Medicare, youre still responsible for 20 percent of the cost Medicare pays the other 80 percent. To help with this out-ofpocket expense, some Medigap supplemental policies provide gap coverage. Or, if you have Medicare Advantage, some plans provide eye care benefits. Be sure you check with your plan administrator. Ways to Save If you find your eye care needs arent covered, or you cant afford the 20 percent out-of-pocket that Medicare doesnt cover, there are other ways to save. For starters, if you need a refractive eye exam or a new pair of eyeglasses, many optometrists and eyeglass dealers offer discounts usually between 10 and 30 percent to seniors who request it. Memberships in groups like AAA and AARP can also provide lower rates. Another way to get low-cost eye care is at an optometry school. Many offer affordable care provided by students that are overseen by their professors. See opted.org for a directory of schools and their contact information. Assistance Programs Depending on where you live, there may also be some local clin ics or charitable organizations that provide free or discounted eye care or eyeglasses. Put in a call to your local Lions Club to see whats available in your area. To reach your local club, visit lionsclubs. org or call 800-747-4448 to get the number to your state Lions Club office, which can refer you to your community representative. Or, if you need medical eye care, check into EyeCare America. This is a national program that provides comprehensive medical eye examinations to seniors age 65 and older, and up to one year of treatment at no cost. They accept Medicare or other insurance as full payment. And if you dont have insurance, care is free. To learn more or to find out if you qualify, visit eyecareamerica.org.

FISH TALESCool weather arrived and so did the king mackerel. I have reports of mackerel on the run. They are following the bait fish. It has been windy and the bait fish have been swimming with the wind. If the wind comes from the east, the fish are going east; if it is from the west the fish are swimming toward the west. King mackerel are in this run in pursuit of the bait fish. King mackerel, most often called kingfish, has an average weight of 8 pounds. It is a migratory fish which travels through the gulf waters in the fall and also in the spring. They usually stay in our waters for about six weeks. Various baits can be used for kingfish, such as cut up mullet, ladyfish, cigar minnows and sardines. Some anglers live for the kingfish run. This fish gives them a challenge and lots of action. You may keep 2 per person per day of 24 inches. Fish this fish while they are here, as they are a restless, roving, fish which can never be kept in captivity. It is said they are one of the most important food fishes in the world. Flounder has become a hot topic with anglers this week. First I kept hearing how many were out there in schools. The next boat that came in had large size flounder catches. Flounder is a flatfish and one of the most remarkable groups of fishes in existence. They are apparently only a half fish. Spending their entire life on the bottom and only one side is marked. The bottom side is always pure white. Their bones are so twisted that both eyes are on one side, the top. The young are normal, but as they grow, they become twisted into a one-sided fish. The Ocellated flounder is common in our Florida waters, although there are about fourteen different species of flounder around the world. More than one species frequents our gulf waters. Flounder is a lean white meat, good for your diet and often found in local restaurants. A medium light action rod and a twenty pound test line will work to catch a flounder if you have the right lure or bait. Those using 10 or 12 pound test lines are aiming for trout catches this week. If you drop your line and bait just above the seagrass, you will surely get a trout, as they seem to be feeding there in schools. I noticed much more traffic on our waterways. It is November and our winter visitors have arrived. It has been choppy waters this week and windy, but many have ventured out and made great catches. The usual freshwater catfish, blue gill, and largemouth bass have graced a few dinner tables this week with those fresh water fishing in our lakes and upper rivers. Sheepshead have been plentiful with catches made around piers. Stone crabs seem to be the talk of the bait shops this week. How many are around and the correct way to tear off the claw are hot topics. Mullet are jumping, and you are catching, with fried mullet dinners and hush puppies on many dinner tables. Fish long, fish late, you get an extra hour with last weekends time change. Aleta Jonie Maschek is a member of Florida Outdoor Press. The Ruskin Heritage and Tomato Festival committee is working hard to produce an outstanding festival. The event this year will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3; and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4 at E.G. Simmons County Park in Ruskin. There are lots of great activities and attractions being planned, as always including free tomato slices and free tomato seedlings, lots of great food and rows of vendors, plus wonderful entertainment.

Friday evening will end with a camp-style dinner of hamburgers and hotdogs, along with s mores around a campfire and a talk entitled, Frogs, Water and More. Beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, numerous family activities are scheduled that range from a fishing clinic, to how to make a fossil sifter, to making a cane-fishing pole. In addition, Peggy Morgan from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will give a talk, with the great title of Macro-invertebrate Mania, about things to look for in a healthy river. The general sessions on Saturday include a nature photography clinic and trail walk, and a discussion on Floridas early residents from 500 years ago with Mac Miller. Also on Saturday is a talk by George Kish of the USGS on the connection between plants and the climate and on ways that everyone can help scientists learn more. Additionally, Camp Bayou director Dolly Cummings will provide a peek inside the Florida Master Naturalist Program, a curriculum of interest to everyone from citizen scientists and community volunteers to working biologists.Between all of the sessions will be opportunities for geocaching, letterboxing (an outdoor activity that combines orienteering, art and puzzle solving) and even fly casting practice. Also, a visit to the onsite Paleo Preserve Fossil Museum will be well worth your time.Saturday evening events begin at 4 p.m. in the pavilion with announcement of the winners of the photo contest and a poster session with students from the environmental studies class at Hillsborough Community College. There will also be live music before dinner (for the sake of full disclosure, I will perform that music. In other words, come and be ready to sing along Ill need your help!). Following a barbecue chicken dinner, the weekends keynote speaker, Rob Heath, will give a talk (most appropriately) on getting off the beaten path. Afterwards the evening will conclude with makeyour-own ice cream sundaes. On Sunday, ANEW continues with the choice of four field trips to Emerson Point Preserve, a green campus tour of HCC-SouthShore, a guided canoe tour at Camp Bayou, or a fossil trip to the Peace River with the staff of the Paleo Preserve Museum (you can use the fossil sifter you learned how to make on Saturday!). All of the field trips require pre-registration and a small additional fee. Registration for ANEW is available online and admission is ala carte, meaning you can choose to register for the entire weekend or for specific days and activities. Preregistration is strongly encouraged to help program organizers ensure that everyone gets what they want out of the event. As is to be expected this time of year, the weather forecast is beautiful for the weekend, so it will be a great time to get out to learn about and to enjoy one of the more beautiful, less traveled sides of Florida. Particularly for families and those returning to their winter homes from the already chilly north, ANEW offers an opportunity to see Florida itself anew and to see that enjoying the Sunshine State doesnt have to be a crowded or expensive experience. Paradise is literally in our backyards in what was once an RV park that many dedicated volunteers and nature herself have reclaimed. Registration is available online at www.anew2011.eventbrite.com.

We expect there to be two flatbed trailers so that one band can be setting up while another is playing. So far they have locked in three local bands, Bert and Sassy, a duo from Riverview; the Warehouse Rockers, a five-piece group from Apollo Beach; and the Top Shelf Blues Band from Ruskin. Local restaurants are also signing up to donate time and food, Wren said. VFW and Legion members have done fundraisers for local military organizations and for other community organizations and causes, he added. The first organization ever sponsored by the American Legion was the Boy Scouts of America in 1919, said Taylor. We are still very close to the Boy Scouts. Just recently we presented an award to a local Eagle Scout. Dec. 3 there will be a spaghetti dinner at the post to raise funds for a Brandon Boy Scout troop, Taylor said. The VFW also has fish fries and steak dinners. They are so active we stay busy helping with their events. Dec. 10 the focus will switch to the Toys for Tots program run by the Marine Corps when toy collection begins at the post.

Residents and business persons from the surrounding communities are invited to all the publicized events and also asked to bring unwrapped toys for boys and girls from infants to older teens. While the Legion members have enjoyed their time at the VFW, Taylor says they know it is time they get their own place. Membership is growing, and they hope it will continue to grow. Well take whatever we can get to start, Taylor said. But by law it cant be within 500 feet of a church or school. That is because alcohol is served in the bar, she explained. Land with a building on it would be ideal, but even a vacant store front in a strip mall would do, as long as cooking facilities would be permitted, she said. To join the Legion, show up to a meeting the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. or email Taylor at jtaylor2771@yahoo. com. The Sons of the American Legion and Legion Ladies Auxiliary are also founded and functioning at Post 389.

To me, it still is and so much more.MITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTO (2000) In 1994, I was an executive with a major corporation in Minneapolis, but I had a dream to sail the ocean one day. Later that year I helped a friend move her sailboat from Minnesota to Ft. Myers Beach. That friend had stolen my dream. In the 49-story skyscraper that housed the corporate headquarters, there were untold numbers of political skirmishes every day. In order to smooth some of the feathers ruffled in one such skirmish, my boss suggested that I take the people from another department out for lunch. A day or so later, I received an email from someone in that department who wrote, Hi, my name is Michelle and Id like to meet you. During the lunch with Michelle, I somehow managed to blurt out my plan to continue working hard for the company for a few more years, save as much money as possible, and then buy a boat in California and sail across the Pacific Ocean. In the meantime, Id continue to build experience by sailing my small boat on Lake Superior during Minnesotas very short summer season. Michelle had never been on a sailboat, but she gave me her full attention and at the time I thought that she was either truly interested in what I was saying or she was extraordinarily polite. A few months later, she was at my marina outside of Duluth buying her own boat. I watched as she backed it out of the slip by herself, brushed up against another boat, By Mitch Traphagenmitch@observernews.net and took off. Borrowing a quote from the 1992 movie Captain Ron: If anything is going to happen, its going to happen out there. Michelle was teaching herself how to sail. Winter comes early to Duluth and by the beginning of October; the boats were coming out of the water to avoid the oncoming ice. Michelle had quit her job, and her boat was loaded onto a truck, bound for the sunshine and palm trees of Ft. Myers Beach. She sold everything she owned, including her car, and needed a ride to Florida (the truck drivers wife wasnt too keen on her riding along with him). We drove straight through from Minneapolis to Ft. Myers Beach and arrived just as her boat was pulling into the marina. I spent a few days helping to get her boat ready and then, reluctantly, returned to the cold reality of life back in Minnesota. But before the drive back to Minneapolis was halfway over, I had made my decision I would take my boat to Florida, too. I scrambled to arrange for a leave of absence from work and a truck to haul my boat. Within weeks, I had arrived in the land of eternal summer. My life had changed unexpectedly and very suddenly. After a month in a backwater marina in Ft. Myers Beach, Michelle and I knew that we had to move to a place that actually had employment opportunities. We had met well-known boating author Claiborne Young, who suggested that we move our boats to Ruskin, a place we had never heard of. Its a great place, he said. Very quiet and boater-friendly. Sixteen years ago, almost to this day, we sailed into Bahia Del Sol marina in Ruskin. And except for an 18-month vacation in Iowa, we have never left. Ruskin is the only place in Florida I have lived and the only place in the world where I feel at home. These have been the best years of our lives. Yet after all these years in Ruskin, I find it surprising that a community more than a century old could have an identity problem. Eleven years ago, after returning to Florida from a six-month hiatus cruising through the Bahamas to the Dominican Republic, I had decided to open a small boating store. I did a lot of research and talked to many people about it. I had originally planned to open the store in Ruskin given that there were four marinas and hundreds of boats (and, of course, hundreds of boat owners always in need of boat stuff) in the community. In talking to people, that idea was quickly shot down. I was told repeatedly that: No one from Apollo Beach or Sun City Center will ever go to Ruskin to shop for anything. I ended up opening the store in Apollo Beach and, as suggested, it worked out well. And then, a few years later, came the building boom.

Throughout the years, I have been guilty of saying Momisms. You know, those adages and lines our Moms said to explain why life is the way it is. Whats worse, I repeated them without even realizing it. It was automatic. I was well trained. Last week, as the calendar flipped to November, a friend asked Wasnt it just summer and 90 degrees? Itll be Christmas before we know it! To which I responded Life is like TECH TALKBy: Dana Dittmar, Executive DirectorSCC Chamber News You, Me, and BusinessWhen we were transitioning from teenagers into young adults most of us went through a phase when we were adamant we were not going to turn into our parents. As we matured from young adult into middle life, we often saw that exact phenomenon happen to some degree. When we were teen agers, we thought our parents were fuddyduddies who had old-fashioned ideas. As we matured we grudgingly acknowledged that more a roll of toilet paper. It goes faster the closer you get to the end. That was a Momism. She had a hundred others just like that one. How about You cant outthink crazy people. Its true. When you come across someone who just doesnt live in the same universe as the rest of us, you just have to move on and let them be. They may be in their own little world, but its ok. Theyre at home there. One time my sister opened a bottle of beer and used it to rinse her hair. (Ive heard that really works to make it shiny.) My horrified mother admonished her. Thats alcohol abuse and there are sober children in Africa! I use that one myself a lot. One of my favorites was What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. This is probably the truest Momism yet and I see it By Dana Dittmar every day. I see it with friends who battle cancer or who are the caregivers of others. I see it with those who get the news their adult child has had a near-fatal accident. I see it every day in the faces of those who lost almost everything when the economy turned and bravely transitioned from a nice income to working two low-level jobs just to make ends meet. Some call that the American Spirit. Its what our country was founded on. I never had kids so I dont suppose I can ever have my own Momisms. I guess I just have to settle for Danaisms and hope someday someone thinks theyre funny enough or true enough to repeat them. Heres my first one: When someone asks you how you are, you respond with Im finer than a frogs hair split three ways. Come on. Thats funny right there.

FOX, D.V.M. When people make illegal catches, Wildlife Alert helps bring violators to justice. Text Tip@MyFWC.com to report fish-and-wildlife law violators or boating under the influence.FWC PHOTOFish Busters BulletinIf you are like most Florida anglers and boaters, you enjoy your time on the water. Its an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public, said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators. The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC. com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When peoples information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people dont even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, dont for get to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court.

Investment advisory services offered through Payant Financial Services, Inc. a Registered Investment Advisor not affiliated with SagePoint Financial, Inc. Statistical Source: Wall Street Journal 9/17/11 Griffin, like Alderman, has served a single term on the CA board, but in previous years. Elected in late 2006, the former automotive industry executive and motorcycle dealership entrepre neur was a CA director from 2007 through 2009, officially stepping down when his wife became ill. Her health has improved, he said this week, and he now is able to return to a directorship. If elected, Griffin said his primary objec tive will be to take part in the interfacing with CA members and to see through to fruition whatever community capital improvements that residents support as part of the effort to ensure an active, attractive Sun City Center as it enters its second half century. A SCC CA board seat is a hands-on manage ment position, he asserted, not simply a passive, once-a-monthmeeting situation common to corporate boards. And this fact poses the greatest chal lenge, especially to new directors, he added. On the other hand, the demands are balanced by the satisfactions of being involved, of being able to contrib ute to decision-making and then to be part of implementing those deci sions, said the former Minnesotan who relocated 13 years ago. The objectives have to be enhancing the communitys aesthetics, conveying its friendliness, promoting its clubs, Griffin summed up, and its personally gratifying to be part of that. Formerly an Indiana high school teacher who chose SCC as home seven years ago, Keegan now is completing an unexpired term to which she was appointed a year ago. With two years of work on the commu nitys 50th anniversary celebrations alongside director Ann Marie LeBlanc and a year as an interim director under her belt, Keegan is looking ahead now to long range planning on behalf of residents, she told The Observer this week. Our (Central) campus needs help, she noted, adding that she sees new buildings and landscaping as a prior ity now. However, she indicated she recognizes the entire community may not share that conviction and that serving residents is the first objective. As a high school teacher, she added, I believe I have an open mind and will be available to listen to all viewpoints. The most taxing aspect of board director service is more meetings and more work and more research than I anticipated, she said. It may appear that directors assemble perhaps twice in a week on a Monday and a Wednesday but that doesnt take into account all those other meetings that dont get mentioned but are critical to reach ing goals, she added. An avid bridge player, Keegan noted shes playing less these days, yet Im leading my best life. Being active and involved in helping guide the community forward is the best part of service on the board, she added, and in giving that service Ive kicked it (life) up a notch. The most recent community citi zen among the candi dates, Rob King, is a native Floridian who spent most of his career as a sales manager in the automotive industry in the St. Augustine-Jacksonville area. His experience as an elected officer on a volunteer board involved vice presidency as well as presidency of a Home Owners Association for five years in that locale. He resettled in SCC about a year ago. In those capacities with the HOA he was involved in developing and maintaining a rather strict archi tectural standards code; an interest he believes also has applications in SCC. Establishing or implementing a program to deal defini tively with unkempt, unsightly properties would be among his priorities as a director, if elected, he said. The best part of such a focus on behalf of residents is the satisfaction of achieving an appeal ing community, boasting property values that have not been downgraded by neighboring neglected or abandoned sites, King noted. He added that, like many prospective buyers, he drove by without checking out those SCC homes for sale that were in neighborhoods where the blight of an unkempt home site was obvious. The candidate suggested that in his experience the most burdensome part of service on a volunteer board is the frustration of not being able always to get things done in a timely manner. It takes discipline to clearly see the objective, he said, and yet not be able to move directly toward it because other hurdles have to be surmounted first. A native Californian who came to SCC from Georgia 10 years ago, Paul Sasville is seeking his first term as a CA director. Like King, he has several years of experience as a direc tor and officer on a HOA board in California. Sasville, who describes himself as a voice of reason in a time of uncertainty, is concerned about the prospect of creating debt to underwrite a capital improvements plan. His objective in his first term will be to keep the community debt free in a declin ing economy, he said. Rather than generate considerable indebtedness, even with low-interest loans, he added, the prudent path to modernization may be improving what already exists instead of tearing down and rebuilding. This candidate noted that he has had three careers as a machinist, as a sales manager and in industrial plant maintenance, lived in five states plus, over the years, bought and sold nine homes. This diversity of experience, he suggested, is helpful in meeting the chief challenge of elected board service: hearing diverse opinions and finding reasoned common ground. That challenge also is related to a major advantage of serving on a volunteer board, he added. The best thing is helping to keep a board in balance. All of the candi dates are full-time and year-around SCC residents whose only absences are for shortterm family vaca tions. CA directors are not paid. Until the elec tion on December 6 and 7, they will be making the rounds of various meetings and forums to introduce themselves and their plat forms, beginning this week with a Meet the Candidates event at 7 PM, Wednesday (Nov. 9) in Community Hall. They also are scheduled to join the SCC Forum Club for lunch on Thursday (Nov. 10) as well as appear at meetings next week.

NEW SHOWROOM Come see our... 720 4th St. SW Ruskin, FL 33570813-645-3529www.KnoxAluminum.comNEW ADDRESS apparently didnt want to be associated with Ruskin and thus, the name South Shore came into being, despite the fact that the actual south shore of Tampa Bay is several miles further down the road. One company even tried to use South Shore as its mailing address; an idea that was nixed by the post office, certainly much to the developers chagrin. On one hand, I can understand it all I have a marketing degree and I realize that Ruskin does little to suggest palm trees, beaches, warm ocean breezes and pseudotraditional-Florida-tropical-stripmall-development at which buyers from the frozen north would love to throw money. But on the other hand, I like living in a town named for a poet-philosopher-artistarchitect-genius who may well have gone insane. This past weekend, Ruskin was alive. People streamed in by the thousands for the Seafood A talk about hearingMITCH TRAPHAGEN PHOTOMichelle Traphagen (far right) at the monthly meeting of the Hearing Loss Association of America Sun City Center Chapter. My wife and I were honored to speak at the monthly meeting of the Hearing Loss Association of America, Sun City Center Chapter last week. The topic of our talk was on hearing loss as a couple. As someone with a severe hearingimpairment, I frequently rely on Michelle to hear the world. It turned out that Im not alone as evidenced by the couples in attendance living under similar circumstances. Approximately 28 million Americans suffer from some form of hearing loss and it is not just an affliction for older people Observations Festival, while very cool classic cars cruised the streets in search of the Cruise-In at a local restaurant. Everywhere in town, the beautiful fall weather seemed to bring people out. On seeing it all, it felt great to be here. On a Friday night a few weeks ago, the South Shore Arts Council and the Ruskin Chamber of Commerce held an event at the new Firehouse Cultural Center. It was so cool to see so many people out enjoying themselves on a weekend night in the middle of Ruskin. I think it showed the tremendous potential in this town. Ruskin resident Frank Garcia, a renowned paleontologist and philosopher/song writer to boot, once told me the story of a man from Ruskin who was so curious after meeting so many people from the north that he decided to see what it was like up there. He traveled as far north as he had ever been, making it all the way to the Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 15 percent of all children ages 6 to 19 may suffer from some form of hearing loss in one or both ears. For more information about the Hearing Loss Association of America Sun City Center Chapter, visit www.hla-scc.com. Zephyrhills before deciding hed seen enough and turned around to go home. Last weekend as Michelle (the same Michelle from the beginning of this story who is now my wife) and I were walking down the dock to our boat at what is now Little Harbor Resort, she said, If I look out of the corner of my eyes, this could be 15 years ago. She was right. Much has changed, but much remains the same. We could easily have ended up anywhere Apollo Beach, Riverview, Gibsonton but we landed here, and this is home. Im happy to be from Ruskin. This is the annual Welcome Back edition of The Observer News. Wherever you journeyed from, wherever you landed, be it Sun City Center, Apollo Beach, Riverview or Ruskin, I say to you, Welcome home.

The UCF Marching Knights will be dedicating their fall marching season to fighting Lou Gehrigs Disease. By collaborating with university marching bands, The ALS Association has the unique opportunity to raise ALS awareness among university students and fans, said ALS Association President and CEO Jane Gilbert. We appreciate the support from everyone involved in this campaign and welcome their support in the fight against Lou Gehrigs Disease. Marching for ALS, a subsidiary of Marching for Hope created by Ocean 2 Ocean Productions, was developed as a way for college students to get involved with The ALS Association to learn more about and promote fundraising and awareness for Lou Gehrigs Disease. This year, 12 University Bands will be participating in Marching for ALS throughout the country in the hopes of bringing Lou Gehrigs Disease to forefront and to raise critical funds for the support of those living with ALS and global research efforts.

Simmons Park last weekend for the annual Ruskin Seafood Festival. It was the 23rd running of the event and, by most estimates, was the largest to date with nearly 125 vendors on site. Perfect fall weather also enhanced the festival which included everything from nearly continuous live music, reverse bungie jumping, a special childrens area and even crab races. The star of the event was, of course, seafood offered by a variety of vendors, including Ruskins own Mullet Shack. And while seafood was the entree, dessert was not forgotten with everything from freshly popped kettle corn to strawberry shortcake from Hydro Harvest Farms to traditional funnel cakes something without which no Seafood Festival would be complete.

NOVEMBER 10, 2011 3B Family-style fare to be featured at new Sun City Center restaurantNick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos. PENNY FLETCHER PHOTOSNick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos, owners of the Alpha Pizza House in Apollo Beach, have leased the restaurant at the Sandpiper golf course in Sun City Center and are working hard along with their hired crew to renovate it. The restaurant has been closed since the former developer, WCI Communities, went bankrupt about three years ago. The once-private club restaurant will be open to the public and geared toward family dining for the first time. penny@observernews.netSUN CITY CENTER South County families will soon have a new place to eat. What was once part of a private club that only Sun City Center residents could pay dues to join will be open to the public for the first time since it was built. Called the Sun City Center Golf & Racquet Club for many years, the restaurant portion of the facilities has stood vacant since shortly after the former owner of the club, WCI Communities, filed for bankruptcy Aug. 4, 2008. Now owned and operated by Club Link Inc., the golf course and pro shop have been operating as the Sandpiper. The pool and tennis courts are closed, and no plans to reopen them have been announced. The golfing portion of the Sandpiper is still a private club, but unlike before, it is open to anyone, not just Sun City Center residents. In late September the restaurant facilities were leased to Nick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos after nearly a year of negotiations. We finally had an agreement everyone was satisfied with, Egarhos said. Egarhos and Dendrinos are the owners of the Alpha Pizza House in Apollo Beach. They have had that restaurant for 20 of its 28-year existence. We have a lot of customers from Sun City Center who have over the years asked me to play golf there with them. Many of them have been encouraging me to open the restaurant and after examining everything, we decided to do it, Egarhos said. The restaurant has not been renamed, and as of Nov. 3 was still called the restaurant at the Sandpiper. It is located at 1702 S. Pebble Beach Blvd. in Sun City Center. Egarhos and Dendrinos said there will be a snack bar and a restaurant, both with a full liquor bar. The snack bar, called Bunkers, is targeted to open by the end of November and the restaurant is on track for opening by the end of this year, Egarhos said. Still to do before opening the snack bar is finishing the cleanup and fixing the refrigeration. The two men are working along with their hired crew, scraping and painting. Steves wife Becky is also deep into the work redecorating as she has done with the partners for many years. Egarhos and Dendrinos have been together since 1983 when Dendrinos was with ABC Pizza and Egarhos was a manager for ABC. I sold my interest in ABC and we took over Alpha Pizza together, Dendrinos said. If all goes according to plan, Bunkers will be open by the end of November with operating hours between from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. serving hot and cold sandwiches, soup, draft and canned beer. It will also have a full liquor bar. The partners say they hope to open the restaurant facilities by the end of this year. Neither Bunkers nor the restaurant will be a membership club any longer but instead, family-style and open to the public. It wont be snobby, said Egarhos. We want it to be affordable for families. The restaurant will be open 365 days a year from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and serve steaks, seafood and chicken as well as many other items. After having been closed several years, the restaurant needs a major cleanup, repainting, and eight of the 10 different refrigeration units need repaired or replaced, Egarhos said. Its expensive, but it will be worth it, he added.

GLISSON, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisement. Before you decide, ask us to send you FREE written information about our qualifications and experience. GAINESVILLE, Fla. The Toral Family Foundation, a Flor ida nonprofit organization that supports efforts to help families affected by traumatic brain injuries, has given a substantial gift to the University of Florida College of Medicine to support a new term professorship and establish a research center. The College of Medicine has announced that Latha Ganti Stead, M.D., a professor and chief of clinical research in the department of emergency medicine, has been appointed the first Toral Family Foundation Professor in Traumat ic Brain Injury. I decided to make the gift, because for the past 16 years Ive represented families who had a loved one with traumatic brain injuries, said Frank Toral, a Fort Lauderdale attorney who started the foundation with his wife, Olivia, to support brain injury research and education. Weve really seen how access to resources has improved quality of life. Toral received his bachelors degree in political science from UF in 1989 and today is senior partner of the firm Toral Garcia Battista. The firm, with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Tallahassee, handles serious personal injury cases with a focus on helping survivors of brain and spinal cord injuries negotiate with large insurance companies and major corporations. Stead, who focuses on research that can have an immediate impact on patient care, said she shares Torals passion for helping traumatic brain injury survivors get the longterm therapy and comprehensive care they need. Concentrating primarily on acute stroke and traumatic brain injury, Stead is the co-principal investiga tor for a clinical trial in mild and moderate traumatic brain injury at UF being done in association with Banyan Biomarkers Inc., a UF spinoff company. She is also the principal investigator for the UF Department of Emergency Medicines traumatic brain injury and acute stroke registries. Sometimes a disease or condition doesnt get the attention it deserves until there is a champion for it, Stead said, adding that she is working to establish the Center for Brain Injury Research and Education, an interdisciplinary, cross-college project that would combine the efforts of UF clini cians, educators and researchers working on the different aspects of care for patients with traumatic brain injuries. Prior to coming to UF, Stead was a professor of emergency medicine and neurosurgery at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry from 2008 until 2010. Before that, she served as professor of emergency medicine and chair for the division of emer gency medicine research at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, where she became the first full professor of emergency medicine in the history of the college. According to the Brain Injury Association of Florida Inc., about 210,000 people in the state have been disabled by traumatic brain injuries. Such injuries are also among the most common received by U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the reasons I wanted to partner with UF was to increase the awareness and visibility of brain injury, Toral said. There is a direct correlation between access to resources and improved outcomes in persons with traumatic brain injuries. Often insurance only covers initial care, he said, although many traumatic brain injury survivors need years of costly therapy and round-the-clock care. Over the years, my frustration has been once they are discharged from the hospital, many of them fall through the cracks, he said. Toral hopes his gift encourages more donations for traumatic brain injury research and the center at UF. He envisions the center as a place where traumatic brain injury patients will be able to get multi disciplinary care and benefit from the research the college is doing. Toral earned his Juris Doctor ate degree in 1992 from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law School Center. He has served as an assistant state attor ney in Broward County from 1992 to 1993. He also spent two years working at a large private practice in Hollywood, Fla., before launch ing his own practice in 1995. Toral is immediate past president of the Brain Injury Association of Florida and serves on the Sarah Jane Brain Project National Legal Advisory Board. He served on the board of the Brain Injury Association of America and is a past mem ber of the University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Hospital Pediatric Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Advisory Board. Michael L. Good, M.D., dean of the UF College of Medicine, signs paperwork to help establish the Toral Family Foundation Professorship in Traumatic Brain Injury, alongside Frank Toral, an advocate for brain injury research and education. Watching are Joseph A Tyndall, M.D., chairman for the department of emergency medicine, and Latha Ganti Stead, M.D., chief of clinical research for the department of emergency medicine; and the first Toral Family Foundation professor.

Whenever I boil water on the stove, it reduces the static shocks, adding moisture to the air. Ive boiled water before without cooking something, but that seemed wasteful, so now I just prepare more foods like pasta, boiled eggs, etc. that do require boiling when the air is especially dry. Cheryl in Rhome, TX My savings planTo ensure that I dont forget to save every month, I have begun using index cards. I write down what I am saving for, like new car, and then write down the amount and date that I want to have the money available. I put these index cards in the stack with my bills and write a check just like I would to pay a bill. This check is then deposited into the savings account until Ive met my goal.Cindy B.Want to live better on the money you already make?

11 The signs of varicose veins arent always obvious. Even if you dont see veins on the surface of your legs, theres 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. All veins have valves. Healthy valves keep blood owing only upward and support the weight of the column of blood. When these valves are broken, blood pools below. This congestion and increased pressure result in discomfort and cause uid to build up and leak from the deeper capillaries. The result gradual and continuous deterioration of your legs over the years. Both visible and hidden varicose veins are dangerous they increase your risk of blood clots. Most varicose veins are hidden. Tired, painful legs are a symptom that something is wrong. We test your vein valves while you are standing. If you have ever had an ultrasound of vein valves performed while you were lying down, you have had inadequate testing. This is a gravity issue, after all! Our more advanced methods detect valve problems frequently missed by less wellequipped clinics. Vein testing is easy and painless and takes place right in our ofce. At your exam appointment, our doctor will explain the ultrasound results and discuss treatment options with you. At Mountcastle Vein Centers, we offer four simple, advanced 20-minute procedures performed in our private, small clinic atmosphere. All four are painless, effective, minimally invasive and non-surgical. You can expect to return to normal activity the same day. Dont let leg discomfort keep you from enjoying life. In most cases, our procedures are considered medically necessary and are covered by health insurance and Medicare. This is a progressive disease. So call today for your free consultation.

Stonerock, MD Dear Friend, Confessions are tough, real tough, but, sometimes they help clear the air so theres no misunderstanding. I want to tell you about a confession I have, but let me say a few other things first. Many years ago something happened that changed my life for ever and, in turn, changed many other lives too. At that time, I was deciding what road to take for a career and wanted to settle down to start a family. I was desperate to find a career in health care that really helped people naturally. I had learned as a child that our medical model wasnt always the best answer. As fate would have it, I was injured playing a sport at the age of 7. My parents were friends with a Chiropractic Physician, who took care of me for my injury. However, to my surprise, my allergies cleared up, my headaches stopped, and when all my friends were sick, I stayed healthy. Was this a coincidence? Or did the chiropractic adjustments I had been receiving have something to do with this? I asked the doctor if I could volunteer to help him in his office. I saw many patients get an exam, have a couple of films taken and then have an adjustment of their spine. Over and over I witnessed what many people call miracles happen to patients, from infants to the elderly. These specific adjustments were helping so many people that I decided to go to Chiropractic School myself and things have never been the same since. Its strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their family health concerns and I get to help them reach their God given potential naturally. My husband and I had a wellness practice in Ohio for 10 years, where we had the chance to help thousands of people with headaches, ear infections, migraines, sinus problems, chronic pain, asthma, allergies, whiplash, numbness and tingling in their limbs and for athletic injuries and performance, just to name a few. Approximately 3 years ago we moved to Florida to escape the cold weather and grey skies of the northeast. It has now been close to a year that my practice has been open here in the South Shore area in Ruskin. I have had the pleasure to help many people with their health concerns. Heres what some patients have to say! Low Back and Leg Pain I have had a chronic problem with my back over the years and this pain in my hip and leg. After going to several doctors and chiropractors, Dr. Heather was the only one who was able to help me. I am now able to walk again pain free! Michelle P.Low Back Pain and Digestive ProblemsI was put on pain medication which only covered up my problems and created digestive problems which led to more medica-A Doctors Confession to the South Shore of TampaAmericans are SmarterLook, its not easy being a chiropractor. There are a lot of experts out there who know nothing about our profession, but give people advice and misinformation. But you know the truth always seems to win out. People are sick and tired of just having their symptoms covered up with drugs. They know better. Millions and millions of Americans no longer have health insur ance and those who do have found that their benefits are reduced. Thats were I come in. Many people find that they actually save money on their health care expenses by seeing a chiropractor. We have a significantly lower fee plan so that more people are able to afford the care they need.Another Way to SaveStudies show that chiropractic care can double your immune system, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, the flu and all sickness. So you may not be running off to the M.D. as much. Studies show that people actually pay less for their long term overall health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor. We have an incredible 99% patient satisfaction rating!Great Care at a Great FeePlease, I hope that there is no misunderstanding about the quality of care just because I have a lower fee. My qualifications include a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. I am certified by all four National Boards and the State of Florida Board. We have the latest in technology, and I am always looking to improve my care for my patients. We are in network with many insurance plans and I have been entrusted to care for small babies to top athletes. I just have this lowered fee to help more people who need care.

After I started to get treatments with Dr. Heather my pain was almost gone in one adjustment, and now I am not taking any medication for my stomach and I am back out playing golf! AliceAllergiesMy allergist asked me why I wasnt getting my allergy shots, I told them I started seeing Dr. Heather for chiropractic adjustments, and my allergies have cleared Jen H.Auto Accident VictimAfter my auto accident my headaches were severe and I had numbness into my hands. Dr. Haverfield was able to help me feel like a normal person again. P.A. Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems, but I really cant take the credit. My confession is that Ive never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure and when the interference is removed, the body responds by healing itself. Chiropractic gets tremendous results. Its as simple as that! Your body was made to heal itself as long as theres no inter ferenceinterference caused by falls, auto accidents, sport injuries, arthritic changes, and physical stress at any age! Chiropractors remove nerve interference and thats why we get wonderful results. I am trained in Palmer Technique, Activator (gentle care), Diversified and Drop Technique. I am also a certified yoga instructor and currently teaching at Riverside Club on Thursdays. I use Standard Process whole food supplements and the Erchonia Cold Laser to assist your body in healing. Other alternative choices we offer are hair analysis, detox foot bath, and natural face lift.

For 18 million of us, it is a place to live, to work and, occasionally, to play. For another 82 million people, it is a place to visit for shopping, Disney World, hitting the beach or just to escape a cold winter for a week or two. But Florida is far more than beaches, strip malls and theme parks. While the waterfront is stunning, some of the most beautiful parts of the Sunshine State are not only off the beaches, they are also off the beaten path. The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is one such place. It began, appropriately enough, as an abandoned RV park and was purchased by Hillsborough County in 1995 under the Environmental Land Acquisition and Protection Program (ELAPP). Today it is a model of the beauty and serenity of Florida that you wont necessarily find in a travel brochure. It By PENNY FLETCHER%  penny@observernews.netRUSKIN American Legion Post 389 is grateful for being allowed to use the facilities of VFW Post 6287 but members know its time to get their own place. The Legion started its Ruskin post five years ago and has since grown to more than 130 members. While the VFW is for U.S. military veterans of all branches who have fought on foreign soil, Legion membership is for veterans who are, or were in the service in any branch of the military during a conflict, whether or not they served in combat. The two groups are closely knit, and in Ruskin, they have operated joint fundraisers during the time theyve shared the VFWs facility at 5120 U.S. 41 in Ruskin. We have members of all ages, said Janet Taylor, Commander of Legion Post 389. There are some active duty returning now, and some from the time during World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and both Gulf wars. The members range in age between 18 and 90 but age doesnt create a barrier, Taylor said. VFW membership at the Ruskin post is around 700 according to VFW Commander Chris Young. Both organizations work for local veterans and their families, but we also work for the communities, Taylor explained. Although they are part of national organizations, both may set their own priorities on a local level. Since they are sharing the VFW building, theyve done a lot of joint fundraisers and plan many more during the 2011/2012 season. The next event will be the Veterans Day Parade Nov. 12 starting at Grannys restaurant at 11 a.m. and ending at McDonalds on 19th Avenue.See AMERICAN LEGION, page 12Welcome back with ANEW look at Florida!is also a shining example of what communities working together can achieve. Both the Ruskin Community Development Foundation and the Community Foundation of Greater Sun City Center have invested, along with the county, into making Camp Bayou one of the increasingly rare and beautiful places that is a showcase of Floridas incredible diversity. Nature has quickly reclaimed her prize and there is nothing to suggest an RV park ever existed there. This weekend, Camp Bayou will give everyone the opportunity to experience a taste of the real Florida with a program known as A Natural Education Weekend (ANEW). It begins on Friday with sessions that include everything from how to explore the outdoors responsibly, to enjoying the outdoors with children, to lessons on setting up a camp given by the Ruskin Boy Scout troop. The See WELCOME BACK, page 11 By MELODY JAMESON%  mj@observernews.netSUN CITY CENTER Five experienced candidates now are competing for election here as directors on the communitys top administrative board. The five Al Alderman, Howie Griffin, Jane Keegan, Rob King and Paul Sasville are vying for three open seats on the SCC Community Association Board of Directors which will be filled by CA members marking ballots for the annual election in December. Each has specific experience either locally or in former home cities serving in an elected position on a volunteer board. The candidates whether longtime residents or relative newcomers also have particular objectives they want to attain on behalf of the community theyve chosen to call home. Additionally, they all have keen interest in a proposed comprehensive capital improvements program soon to become a community-wide topic of discussions. Alderman, a mechanical engineer from Connecticut, has served one three-year term on the nine-member CA board and now is after a second term to both continue work with Sun City Centers 150 clubs and to guide the ship of community safety through the current rough economic seas, he said this week. During his first term, Alderman has been the boards key liaison with the large number of organizations engaged in wide ranging activities geared to resident interests, focused on helping them update their governing by-laws to meet contemporary standards as those documents have come up for review. To date, the official documents of at least 25 clubs have been examined, standardized and completed, he said. The former engineer has succeeded with another detailed task guiding creation, perhaps for the first time, of current and accurate club membership lists to assist the board in carrying out one of its primary responsibilities management and maintenance of common areas. In his second term, Alderman indicated he wants to see through work begun as chairman of an architectural committee concerned with the design and appearances of any buildings ultimately included in the communitys capital improvements program. Asked what he considers the greatest challenge for CA board directors, he noted it has to be time; too little time to get everything done. The best part of directorship is working with the membership, he added, I love the job and I hope to be returned to it.See SCC CA ELECTION, page 22

And, residents this week will have opportunity to weigh in on the environmental question bearing on one of the most prominent commercial locations in the community. Developer GC Partners, LLC, is seeking a brownfield designation for the former site of a gasoline service station on the northwest corner of the Pebble Beach Boulevard and S.R. 674 intersection, according to Mary Yeargan, brownfields coordinator with Hillsboroughs Environmental Protection Agency (EPC). Operators of the service station, built early in the communitys history, had sold products and services under a number of major oil company banners, most recently with the BP label. The station has been closed and available for sale for a year. At least one auction aimed at selling the site was conducted there but did not produce a sale when no buyer stepped up to negotiate a price in the asking range of $600,000 for the property of a little over a half acre. A community meeting, required as part of the process involved in gaining a brownfield designation, has been scheduled for 6 PM, Thursday (November 10) at the Sun City Center Inn on the east side of Pebble Beach Boulevard. Residents will be able to learn more about the designation and the developers plans during the meeting, Yeargan indicated. The site was cleared of debris from the razed filling station building, tarmac and pump island during the last month In the last week, the underground gasoline tanks also were excavated and removed by a Tampa firm, Progress Engineering, headed by Bridget Morello, P.E. Both Yeargan and Morello, when pressed by The Observer, acknowledged their information is a Chase Bank branch is being planned for the site. However, both also cautioned that they have nothing in writing to substantiate that projection and that it is possible the developer and the bank management have not yet executed an agreement cementing the arrangement. Brownfields are defined by the Florida Brownfield Redevelopment Act as sites that are generally abandoned, idled, or underused real properties where expansion or redevelopment is complicated by actual or perceived environmental contamination. Sites of gasoline service stations, with their underground gasoline holding tanks that can fail with age or damage, qualify under the statute, Yeargan indicated. The purpose of the act is to assist property owners with remediation of environmental contaminations to that the property can be safely redeveloped. The law also provides certain advantages for the developer or builder who undertakes a redevelopment project involving a brownfield site, Yeargan noted. Among those advantages are voluntary clean-up tax credits applicable to Florida corporate income taxes and in an amount up to $500,000, the EPC coordinator noted. In addition, such tax credits, if earned but not used, can be sold one time to achieve the benefit, she said. The concept is supported by a portion of the gasoline taxes paid by consumers at the pump when retail purchases are made. Rather than wait for the state to underwrite a site clean-up after the brownfield designation is granted, Yeargan explained, this developer is stepping up, willing to pay the clean-up costs at the front end, and then, upon gaining the designation, probably either claim the allowed credits or make use of the credit sale option. Named brownfields to distinguish such sites from greenfields, the program initiated in the late 1990s has proved highly useful in getting assistance for properties with environmental contamination issues but still suitable for productive functions, Yeargan said. Such properties are not contaminated to any degree approaching the Super Fund level, she indicated. EPC does not issue the brownfield designation. Yeargan said she reviews the environmental data and county commissioners make the final recommendation as part of their frequent routine land use evaluations. As efforts pertinent to the former filling station site are proceeding, another change in the local banking scene is on the horizon. The SCC area Superior Bank branch in the Kings Crossing shopping center anchored by Publix Supermarket is slated to begin operating under a new brand this week. The Superior network, based in Birmingham, AL, was acquired by Community Bancorp LLC in April and now is merging with another of the holding companys banking networks, Cadence Bank, N.A. The blue and gold Cadence Bank signage, replacing the red and white Superior logo, is expected to be in place by Friday, Nov. 11. Managers with the former Superior Bank have notified their customers in writing of the pending name change and promised that while the brand is different, nothing related to account numbering, loan arrangements, debit card use, account statements or hours of operation will change. Still another recent alteration among SCC financial institutions was takeover of the troubled SouthShore Community Bank by Texas-based American Momentum Bank (AMB) during the summer. The former community bank branch on the south side of S.R. 674, immediately behind the CVS Pharmacy, now carries the AMB logo. In the same timeframe, the former Wachovia Bank branch, in the banking cluster at the southeastern edge of the SCC Plaza, began sporting the Wells Fargo insignia and signage, capping off last years integration of the smaller Wachovia network with the multi-faceted Wells Fargo combine. If the Chase Bank branch is built on the former service station site as projected, it will become the 11th financial institution offering retail banking services in Sun City Center. Copyright 2011 Melody Jameson MELODY JAmMESON PHOTOPredicted to become the site of a new bank branch, the former gasoline service station at Pebble Beach Boulevard and S.R. 674 recently was reduced to rubble in a matter of hours and cleared of all debris along with its underground gasoline storage tanks over a matter of days. An out-of-state developer is seeking a brownfield designation on the property from Hillsborough County which would provide financial assistance for redevelopment of the approximate half acre in a prime location in the middle of Sun City Center. Both Hillsborough County and private company personnel working with the application say they think a Chase Bank branch is planned for the site.

I say chosen because that is the case for most of us. I will eliminate those who are mentally infirm or those who have yet to reach the age of maturity. There may even be a few others who may claim exemption, but I repeat, most of us choose the lives we live. A primary example of changing your world by the way you think is the way many Asians have bettered their lives in this country. Most came to this country without the ability to speak our language, or if they could, it was in a limited fashion. It would have been easy to fall prey to the idea that discrimination was the basis for all their troubles. Indeed, that might be the case for some of them, but most of the Asians who came to this country spent time learning the language, learning business skills, and, in general, working very hard. Two of my Asian friends who run a restaurant routinely put in more than 14 hours per day. They changed their world by the way their thoughts and actions. On the other hand, I overheard a man having dinner in my friends restaurant say to his wife, It is awful how these Chinamen come into this country and take jobs away from real Americans. Theyre the reason I cant find work. I dont know who he was trying to fool. I know that man. He is about 75 pounds overweight and someone would have to wrestle him to the ground and tie him to get him to stay on a job By William Hodges site, let alone work. His world will never change because he will never change his thinking. He will always blame someone else for his lack of success. Another example of changing your world by changing the way you think are those people who refuse to be classified and pigeonholed into any specific subgroup of the whole. Woodrow Wilson said, You cannot become thorough Americans if you think of yourselves in groups. America does not consist of groups. A man who thinks of himself as belonging to a particular national group in America has not yet become an American. I have very successful friends of all races, and they do not want to be thought of as hyphenated Americans. Their thinking process directs their actions to be such that they demand and get respect. They claim only the rights of citizenship and neither accept or expect special privilege. A final example of changing your world by changing the way you think are the pioneers in lifethose people who break new ground and refuse to live with the status quo. They are the free spirits who let their minds soar. They are the trail blazers and the explorers in all disciplines. They are the Fords who gave us wheels, the Edisons who gave us light, the Wrights who gave us the wings to fly, and thousands of other inventorsboth men and womenwho were dissatisfied with something and changed it. They changed not only their world with their thoughts, but changed ours as well.

Governor Rick Scott recently signed the proclamation, thereby continuing a vital time-honored tradition undertaken by Floridas governors to officially proclaim November as Manatee Awareness Month. A primary purpose of this designation is to heighten public awareness about the importance of protecting Floridas official marine mammal, which the proclamation states, is a distinctive and valuable beloved natural resource, and further declares that manatees face the risk of extinction due to human related threats including the loss of warm water winter habitat. Patrick Rose, Executive Director of Save the Manatee Club, is grateful to Governor Scott for supporting the need to safeguard the well-being of Floridas endangered manatees. Save the Manatee Clubs mission is to protect manatees and their habitat for future generations, says Rose. To accomplish this, we work closely with federal, state, and local governments, as well as with the public at the grass roots level, and support policies based on the best scientific data available. The Club offers a variety of ways for the public to be directly involved with manatee protection. Free public awareness waterway signage, banners, boat decals, and educational posters are produced by the Club. The bright yellow waterproof banner which boldly cautions, Please Slow: Manatees Below, can assist in warning boaters to slow down for manatees who may be present. Shoreline property signs and matching boat decals are also available. Both feature the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commissions hotline number (1-888-404-3922) for reporting sick and injured manatees. Boater and diver awareness posters are also available to dive shops, marinas, businesses, visitor centers, classrooms and libraries. Familyfriendly 2-foot by 3-foot outdoor signs are produced by the Club and distributed to state, municipal, and county parks; marinas; and other sites where human/manatee interactions can be a problem. Requests for the free banners, signs, decals, and posters can be sent via e-mail to education@ savethemanatee.org or by calling toll free at 1-800-432-JOIN (5646). Manatee Awareness Month helps to save manatee lives, says Rose. We must continue to expand efforts to raise awareness about the presence of manatees in our waters and to reach more people, in Florida and outside the state, about how to help prevent manatee injuries and deaths. Our behavior has a direct impact on the manatees survival, and the publics ongoing participation in manatee conservation is essential for the welfare and protection of the species. For more information on endangered manatees, the Adopt-AManatee program, or to sign up for the Clubs free e-newsletter, visit the Clubs website at www. savethemanatee.org.

The Rotary Club of SouthShore -Ruskin cordially invites everyone to their 3rd annual Veterans Day Parade Pancake Breakfast from 7:30 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 12 at VFW Post 6287, 5120 U.S. Hwy. 41 North in Ruskin. There will be all-you-care-to-eat pancakes, bacon, coffee and juice. Donation is $6 per adult. This is a fundraising event for the Rotary Club of SouthShores Mentoring Program. X 10 7 6B 7 10 9Free boat safety inspections are held every Saturday by the U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary Flotilla 75 in Ruskin for recreational boaters. These safety inspections take about 15 minutes and are available from 10 a.m. to noon at Simmons Park in Ruskin on the first and third Saturday of the month and at Williams Park in Gibsonton on the second and fourth Saturday. For more information, call (813) 645-6984. Free boat safety inspections held treatments are covered. You also need to be aware that of the eye care services that are covered by Medicare, youre still responsible for 20 percent of the cost Medicare pays the other 80 percent. To help with this out-ofpocket expense, some Medigap supplemental policies provide gap coverage. Or, if you have Medicare Advantage, some plans provide eye care benefits. Be sure you check with your plan administrator. Ways to Save If you find your eye care needs arent covered, or you cant afford the 20 percent out-of-pocket that Medicare doesnt cover, there are other ways to save. For starters, if you need a refractive eye exam or a new pair of eyeglasses, many optometrists and eyeglass dealers offer discounts usually between 10 and 30 percent to seniors who request it. Memberships in groups like AAA and AARP can also provide lower rates. Another way to get low-cost eye care is at an optometry school. Many offer affordable care provided by students that are overseen by their professors. See opted.org for a directory of schools and their contact information. Assistance Programs Depending on where you live, there may also be some local clinics or charitable organizations that provide free or discounted eye care or eyeglasses. Put in a call to your local Lions Club to see whats available in your area. To reach your local club, visit lionsclubs. org or call 800-747-4448 to get the number to your state Lions Club office, which can refer you to your community representative. Or, if you need medical eye care, check into EyeCare America. This is a national program that provides comprehensive medical eye examinations to seniors age 65 and older, and up to one year of treatment at no cost. They accept Medicare or other insurance as full payment. And if you dont have insurance, care is free. To learn more or to find out if you qualify, visit eyecareamerica.org. If youre under age 65, some other services that can help include Dear Savvy Senior, Does Medicare cover eye care? I had excellent vision insurance through my employer for many years but lost it when I retired, and now am confused as to what Medicare actually covers. What can you tell me? Living on a Budget Dear Living, Many retirees are confused with what Medicare will and wont cover when it comes to eye care. Heres a breakdown of how Medicare handles different types of vision care services, along with some additional tips that can help you get affordable care when needed. Medicare Coverage If you have original Medicare (Part A and B), its important to know that routine vision care like eye exams, eye refractions, eyeglasses or contact lenses are generally not covered.

FISH TALESCool weather arrived and so did the king mackerel. I have reports of mackerel on the run. They are following the bait fish. It has been windy and the bait fish have been swimming with the wind. If the wind comes from the east, the fish are going east; if it is from the west the fish are swimming toward the west. King mackerel are in this run in pursuit of the bait fish. King mackerel, most often called kingfish, has an average weight of 8 pounds. It is a migratory fish which travels through the gulf waters in the fall and also in the spring. They usually stay in our waters for about six weeks. Various baits can be used for kingfish, such as cut up mullet, ladyfish, cigar minnows and sardines. Some anglers live for the kingfish run. This fish gives them a challenge and lots of action. You may keep 2 per person per day of 24 inches. Fish this fish while they are here, as they are a restless, roving, fish which can never be kept in captivity. It is said they are one of the most important food fishes in the world. Flounder has become a hot topic with anglers this week. First I kept hearing how many were out there in schools. The next boat that came in had large size flounder catches. Flounder is a flatfish and one of the most remarkable groups of fishes in existence. They are apparently only a half fish. Spending their entire life on the bottom and only one side is marked. The bottom side is always pure white. Their bones are so twisted that both eyes are on one side, the top. The young are normal, but as they grow, they become twisted into a one-sided fish. The Ocellated flounder is common in our Florida waters, although there are about fourteen different species of flounder around the world. More than one species frequents our gulf waters. Flounder is a lean white meat, good for your diet and often found in local restaurants. A medium light action rod and a twenty pound test line will work to catch a flounder if you have the right lure or bait. Those using 10 or 12 pound test lines are aiming for trout catches this week. If you drop your line and bait just above the seagrass, you will surely get a trout, as they seem to be feeding there in schools. I noticed much more traffic on our waterways. It is November and our winter visitors have arrived. It has been choppy waters this week and windy, but many have ventured out and made great catches. The usual freshwater catfish, blue gill, and largemouth bass have graced a few dinner tables this week with those fresh water fishing in our lakes and upper rivers. Sheepshead have been plentiful with catches made around piers. Stone crabs seem to be the talk of the bait shops this week. How many are around and the correct way to tear off the claw are hot topics. Mullet are jumping, and you are catching, with fried mullet dinners and hush puppies on many dinner tables. Fish long, fish late, you get an extra hour with last weekends time change. Aleta Jonie Maschek is a member of Florida Outdoor Press. The Ruskin Heritage and Tomato Festival committee is working hard to produce an outstanding festival. The event this year will take place from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3; and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 4 at E.G. Simmons County Park in Ruskin. There are lots of great activities and attractions being planned, as always including free tomato slices and free tomato seedlings, lots of great food and rows of vendors, plus wonderful entertainment. For more information about the Ruskin Heritage and Tomato Festival, visit the website www.ruskintomatofestival.org or check out their Facebook page. There are still some spaces available for local craft or plant vendors, or local businesses who would like to participate in the festival. There is even a couple spots available for food vendors who offer at least one dish where the tomato is the star ingredient. Sponsorships are still available for some key areas of the festival. Applications for all opportunities are available on the website: www.ruskintomatofestival.org. The Ruskin Heritage and Tomato Festival is the main fundraiser for the Ruskin Community Development Foundation, Inc. (www.ruskinfoundation.org). They are also looking for some volunteers to help keep things moving smoothly.

Friday evening will end with a camp-style dinner of hamburgers and hotdogs, along with s mores around a campfire and a talk entitled, Frogs, Water and More. Beginning at 9 a.m. on Saturday, numerous family activities are scheduled that range from a fishing clinic, to how to make a fossil sifter, to making a cane-fishing pole. In addition, Peggy Morgan from the Florida Department of Environmental Protection will give a talk, with the great title of Macro-invertebrate Mania, about things to look for in a healthy river. The general sessions on Saturday include a nature photography clinic and trail walk, and a discussion on Floridas early residents from 500 years ago with Mac Miller. Also on Saturday is a talk by George Kish of the USGS on the connection between plants and the climate and on ways that everyone can help scientists learn more. Additionally, Camp Bayou director Dolly Cummings will provide a peek inside the Florida Master Naturalist Program, a curriculum of interest to everyone from citizen scientists and community volunteers to working biologists.Between all of the sessions will be opportunities for geocaching, letterboxing (an outdoor activity that combines orienteering, art and puzzle solving) and even fly casting practice. Also, a visit to the onsite Paleo Preserve Fossil Museum will be well worth your time.Saturday evening events begin at 4 p.m. in the pavilion with announcement of the winners of the photo contest and a poster session with students from the environmental studies class at Hillsborough Community College. There will also be live music before dinner (for the sake of full disclosure, I will perform that music. In other words, come and be ready to sing along Ill need your help!). Following a barbecue chicken dinner, the weekends keynote speaker, Rob Heath, will give a talk (most appropriately) on getting off the beaten path. Afterwards the evening will conclude with makeyour-own ice cream sundaes. On Sunday, ANEW continues with the choice of four field trips to Emerson Point Preserve, a green campus tour of HCC-SouthShore, a guided canoe tour at Camp Bayou, or a fossil trip to the Peace River with the staff of the Paleo Preserve Museum (you can use the fossil sifter you learned how to make on Saturday!). All of the field trips require pre-registration and a small additional fee. Registration for ANEW is available online and admission is ala carte, meaning you can choose to register for the entire weekend or for specific days and activities. Preregistration is strongly encouraged to help program organizers ensure that everyone gets what they want out of the event. As is to be expected this time of year, the weather forecast is beautiful for the weekend, so it will be a great time to get out to learn about and to enjoy one of the more beautiful, less traveled sides of Florida. Particularly for families and those returning to their winter homes from the already chilly north, ANEW offers an opportunity to see Florida itself anew and to see that enjoying the Sunshine State doesnt have to be a crowded or expensive experience. Paradise is literally in our backyards in what was once an RV park that many dedicated volunteers and nature herself have reclaimed. Registration is available online at www.anew2011.eventbrite.com.

Then theres a fundraiser for the Ruskin Drive-In theater Nov. 20 from noon to 6 p.m. This will be an outdoor event with four or five bands donating their time, said Gene Wren, the VFWs bar manager. We expect there to be two flatbed trailers so that one band can be setting up while another is playing. So far they have locked in three local bands, Bert and Sassy, a duo from Riverview; the Warehouse Rockers, a five-piece group from Apollo Beach; and the Top Shelf Blues Band from Ruskin. Local restaurants are also signing up to donate time and food, Wren said. VFW and Legion members have done fundraisers for local military organizations and for other community organizations and causes, he added. The first organization ever sponsored by the American Legion was the Boy Scouts of America in 1919, said Taylor. We are still very close to the Boy Scouts. Just recently we presented an award to a local Eagle Scout. Dec. 3 there will be a spaghetti dinner at the post to raise funds for a Brandon Boy Scout troop, Taylor said. The VFW also has fish fries and steak dinners. They are so active we stay busy helping with their events. Dec. 10 the focus will switch to the Toys for Tots program run by the Marine Corps when toy collection begins at the post. Unwrapped toys may be brought to the post between 1-10 p.m. that day, Wren said. Our Ladies Auxilliary from both the VFW and the Legionwill be wrapping and then the toys Veterans Day Parade to be held SaturdayRuskin VFW Post 6287 will hold their annual Veterans Day parade on Saturday, Nov. 12, beginning at 11 a.m. The parade will run down U.S. Highway 41. Events recognizing veterans will also be held in Sun City Center beginning on Friday. Although the Ruskin VFW parade will be held on Saturday, Veterans Day actually falls on Friday, Nov. 11 this year. The holiday began as the anniversary of the ending of World War I, which formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918.MITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTO American Legion%  Janet Taylor is Commander of the American Legion Post 389, Based in Ruskin.will be distributed between Dec. 19 and 23rd but the Marine Corps picks up to deliver. Residents and business persons from the surrounding communities are invited to all the publicized events and also asked to bring unwrapped toys for boys and girls from infants to older teens. While the Legion members have enjoyed their time at the VFW, Taylor says they know it is time they get their own place. Membership is growing, and they hope it will continue to grow. Well take whatever we can get to start, Taylor said. But by law it cant be within 500 feet of a church or school. That is because alcohol is served in the bar, she explained. Land with a building on it would be ideal, but even a vacant store front in a strip mall would do, as long as cooking facilities would be permitted, she said. To join the Legion, show up to a meeting the first Wednesday of every month at 7 p.m. or email Taylor at jtaylor2771@yahoo. com. The Sons of the American Legion and Legion Ladies Auxiliary are also founded and functioning at Post 389. To join the Ladies Auxiliary, a person must be an immediate family member of a qualifying veteran, like a mother, sister, or grandmother. More information is also offered on line at www. legion.org.

To me, it still is and so much more.MITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTO (2000) In 1994, I was an executive with a major corporation in Minneapolis, but I had a dream to sail the ocean one day. Later that year I helped a friend move her sailboat from Minnesota to Ft. Myers Beach. That friend had stolen my dream. In the 49-story skyscraper that housed the corporate headquarters, there were untold numbers of political skirmishes every day. In order to smooth some of the feathers ruffled in one such skirmish, my boss suggested that I take the people from another department out for lunch. A day or so later, I received an email from someone in that department who wrote, Hi, my name is Michelle and Id like to meet you. During the lunch with Michelle, I somehow managed to blurt out my plan to continue working hard for the company for a few more years, save as much money as possible, and then buy a boat in California and sail across the Pacific Ocean. In the meantime, Id continue to build experience by sailing my small boat on Lake Superior during Minnesotas very short summer season. Michelle had never been on a sailboat, but she gave me her full attention and at the time I thought that she was either truly interested in what I was saying or she was extraordinarily polite. A few months later, she was at my marina outside of Duluth buying her own boat. I watched as she backed it out of the slip by herself, brushed up against another boat, By Mitch Traphagenmitch@observernews.net and took off. Borrowing a quote from the 1992 movie Captain Ron: If anything is going to happen, its going to happen out there. Michelle was teaching herself how to sail. Winter comes early to Duluth and by the beginning of October; the boats were coming out of the water to avoid the oncoming ice. Michelle had quit her job, and her boat was loaded onto a truck, bound for the sunshine and palm trees of Ft. Myers Beach. She sold everything she owned, including her car, and needed a ride to Florida (the truck drivers wife wasnt too keen on her riding along with him). We drove straight through from Minneapolis to Ft. Myers Beach and arrived just as her boat was pulling into the marina. I spent a few days helping to get her boat ready and then, reluctantly, returned to the cold reality of life back in Minnesota. But before the drive back to Minneapolis was halfway over, I had made my decision I would take my boat to Florida, too. I scrambled to arrange for a leave of absence from work and a truck to haul my boat. Within weeks, I had arrived in the land of eternal summer. My life had changed unexpectedly and very suddenly. After a month in a backwater marina in Ft. Myers Beach, Michelle and I knew that we had to move to a place that actually had employment opportunities. We had met well-known boating author Claiborne Young, who suggested that we move our boats to Ruskin, a place we had never heard of. Its a great place, he said. Very quiet and boater-friendly. Sixteen years ago, almost to this day, we sailed into Bahia Del Sol marina in Ruskin. And except for an 18-month vacation in Iowa, we have never left. Ruskin is the only place in Florida I have lived and the only place in the world where I feel at home. These have been the best years of our lives. Yet after all these years in Ruskin, I find it surprising that a community more than a century old could have an identity problem. Eleven years ago, after returning to Florida from a six-month hiatus cruising through the Bahamas to the Dominican Republic, I had decided to open a small boating store. I did a lot of research and talked to many people about it. I had originally planned to open the store in Ruskin given that there were four marinas and hundreds of boats (and, of course, hundreds of boat owners always in need of boat stuff) in the community. In talking to people, that idea was quickly shot down. I was told repeatedly that: No one from Apollo Beach or Sun City Center will ever go to Ruskin to shop for anything. I ended up opening the store in Apollo Beach and, as suggested, it worked out well. And then, a few years later, came the building boom. Developments involving hundreds of millions of dollars came to town, but they See OBSERVATIONS, page 23

Throughout the years, I have been guilty of saying Momisms. You know, those adages and lines our Moms said to explain why life is the way it is. Whats worse, I repeated them without even realizing it. It was automatic. I was well trained. Last week, as the calendar flipped to November, a friend asked Wasnt it just summer and 90 degrees? Itll be Christmas before we know it! To which I responded Life is like TECH TALKBy: Dana Dittmar, Executive DirectorSCC Chamber News You, Me, and BusinessWhen we were transitioning from teenagers into young adults most of us went through a phase when we were adamant we were not going to turn into our parents. As we matured from young adult into middle life, we often saw that exact phenomenon happen to some degree. When we were teen agers, we thought our parents were fuddyduddies who had old-fashioned ideas. As we matured we grudgingly acknowledged that more a roll of toilet paper. It goes faster the closer you get to the end. That was a Momism. She had a hundred others just like that one. How about You cant outthink crazy people. Its true. When you come across someone who just doesnt live in the same universe as the rest of us, you just have to move on and let them be. They may be in their own little world, but its ok. Theyre at home there. One time my sister opened a bottle of beer and used it to rinse her hair. (Ive heard that really works to make it shiny.) My horrified mother admonished her. Thats alcohol abuse and there are sober children in Africa! I use that one myself a lot. One of my favorites was What doesnt kill you makes you stronger. This is probably the truest Momism yet and I see it By Dana Dittmar every day. I see it with friends who battle cancer or who are the caregivers of others. I see it with those who get the news their adult child has had a near-fatal accident. I see it every day in the faces of those who lost almost everything when the economy turned and bravely transitioned from a nice income to working two low-level jobs just to make ends meet. Some call that the American Spirit. Its what our country was founded on. I never had kids so I dont suppose I can ever have my own Momisms. I guess I just have to settle for Danaisms and hope someday someone thinks theyre funny enough or true enough to repeat them. Heres my first one: When someone asks you how you are, you respond with Im finer than a frogs hair split three ways. Come on. Thats funny right there.

FOX, D.V.M. When people make illegal catches, Wildlife Alert helps bring violators to justice. Text Tip@MyFWC.com to report fish-and-wildlife law violators or boating under the influence.FWC PHOTOFish Busters BulletinIf you are like most Florida anglers and boaters, you enjoy your time on the water. Its an opportunity to get close to nature and break the routine of work, school or retirement. The peaceful challenge of trying to find, attract and catch your piscatorial prey is made possible, in part, by the scientific management and conservation laws that sustain sport fish populations. The goal is for everyone to be able to share in the pleasure and to provide a sustainable harvest. So when you see someone threatening those resources by damaging habitat, polluting the water, using illegal gear, taking more than the bag limit or keeping undersized fish, you probably wish you could do something. Well, you can. You have several options, but the newest, most real-time option is to silently send a text message to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Conscientious anglers and boaters can text Tip@MyFWC.com (standard usage fees may apply). The text-messaging option makes it more convenient for the public, said Col. Jim Brown, director of the FWCs Division of Law Enforcement. We also hope it will make Wildlife Alert even more effective in catching poachers and other violators. The Wildlife Alert Reward Program has helped the FWC catch thousands of violators when people call 888-404-FWCC (3922), or when they simply dial *FWC or #FWC (depending on service provider). Violations can also be anonymously reported online (MyFWC. com/WildlifeAlert). The highly successful Wildlife Alert Reward Program has been around for more than 30 years. When peoples information results in an arrest, they may become eligible for a reward of up to $1,000. Many conservation-minded people dont even claim the reward because helping get the violators off the water or saving a life by reporting unsafe boaters, including boating under the influence, is reward enough. But being able to do so quickly and efficiently is crucial. Cell phones, and now texting, help get information to a conservation officer while the possible crime is still ongoing. When submitting information via text message, it is important to include as much information as possible, such as the specific violation and the location. Once a report is initiated, FWC dispatchers can respond via text message to the reporting party to gather additional details. Besides reporting a suspected violation immediately, dont forget to include physical descriptions of violators and vehicles, license tag numbers, etc. Such details are important to ensure an officer can respond effectively. Callers and online reporters may remain anonymous; they do not have to provide their names or email addresses, and they will not be required to testify in court. A confidential code number is provided, so you will be eligible for a reward, either by text, email or calling 888-404-FWCC. Trained dispatchers handle Wildlife Alert contacts 24-hours a day, seven days a week. The real beauty of the program is that violators through court fines are the ones who pay the reward money. When a violator is found guilty, the judge can require a portion of the fine to be paid into the Wildlife Alert Reward Fund. So, in effect, violators are paying people to turn them in. There are many other ways that concerned citizens can directly assist the FWC. Angler Tag Return Hotline: Call 800-367-4461. Burmese Pythons, or other exotic reptiles: Call 888-483-4681.

Reporting those who misuse our wildlife resources or endanger lives by operating vessels while intoxicated is one way we can all help. Through Wildlife Alert and these other programs, ordinary people become the eyes and ears of the FWC, keep costs down, help conserve our resources and keep outdoor enthusiasts safe.

Investment advisory services offered through Payant Financial Services, Inc. a Registered Investment Advisor not affiliated with SagePoint Financial, Inc. Statistical Source: Wall Street Journal 9/17/11 Griffin, like Alderman, has served a single term on the CA board, but in previous years. Elected in late 2006, the former automotive industry executive and motorcycle dealership entrepreneur was a CA director from 2007 through 2009, officially stepping down when his wife became ill. Her health has improved, he said this week, and he now is able to return to a directorship. If elected, Griffin said his primary objective will be to take part in the interfacing with CA members and to see through to fruition whatever community capital improvements that residents support as part of the effort to ensure an active, attractive Sun City Center as it enters its second half century. A SCC CA board seat is a hands-on management position, he asserted, not simply a passive, once-a-monthmeeting situation common to corporate boards. And this fact poses the greatest challenge, especially to new directors, he added. On the other hand, the demands are balanced by the satisfactions of being involved, of being able to contribute to decision-making and then to be part of implementing those decisions, said the former Minnesotan who relocated 13 years ago. The objectives have to be enhancing the communitys aesthetics, conveying its friendliness, promoting its clubs, Griffin summed up, and its personally gratifying to be part of that. Formerly an Indiana high school teacher who chose SCC as home seven years ago, Keegan now is completing an unexpired term to which she was appointed a year ago. With two years of work on the communitys 50th anniversary celebrations alongside director Ann Marie LeBlanc and a year as an interim director under her belt, Keegan is looking ahead now to long range planning on behalf of residents, she told The Observer this week. Our (Central) campus needs help, she noted, adding that she sees new buildings and landscaping as a priority now. However, she indicated she recognizes the entire community may not share that conviction and that serving residents is the first objective. As a high school teacher, she added, I believe I have an open mind and will be available to listen to all viewpoints. The most taxing aspect of board director service is more meetings and more work and more research than I anticipated, she said. It may appear that directors assemble perhaps twice in a week on a Monday and a Wednesday but that doesnt take into account all those other meetings that dont get mentioned but are critical to reaching goals, she added. An avid bridge player, Keegan noted shes playing less these days, yet Im leading my best life. Being active and involved in helping guide the community forward is the best part of service on the board, she added, and in giving that service Ive kicked it (life) up a notch. The most recent community citizen among the candidates, Rob King, is a native Floridian who spent most of his career as a sales manager in the automotive industry in the St. Augustine-Jacksonville area. His experience as an elected officer on a volunteer board involved vice presidency as well as presidency of a Home Owners Association for five years in that locale. He resettled in SCC about a year ago. In those capacities with the HOA he was involved in developing and maintaining a rather strict architectural standards code; an interest he believes also has applications in SCC. Establishing or implementing a program to deal definitively with unkempt, unsightly properties would be among his priorities as a director, if elected, he said. The best part of such a focus on behalf of residents is the satisfaction of achieving an appealing community, boasting property values that have not been downgraded by neighboring neglected or abandoned sites, King noted. He added that, like many prospective buyers, he drove by without checking out those SCC homes for sale that were in neighborhoods where the blight of an unkempt home site was obvious. The candidate suggested that in his experience the most burdensome part of service on a volunteer board is the frustration of not being able always to get things done in a timely manner. It takes discipline to clearly see the objective, he said, and yet not be able to move directly toward it because other hurdles have to be surmounted first. A native Californian who came to SCC from Georgia 10 years ago, Paul Sasville is seeking his first term as a CA director. Like King, he has several years of experience as a director and officer on a HOA board in California. Sasville, who describes himself as a voice of reason in a time of uncertainty, is concerned about the prospect of creating debt to underwrite a capital improvements plan. His objective in his first term will be to keep the community debt free in a declining economy, he said. Rather than generate considerable indebtedness, even with low-interest loans, he added, the prudent path to modernization may be improving what already exists instead of tearing down and rebuilding. This candidate noted that he has had three careers as a machinist, as a sales manager and in industrial plant maintenance, lived in five states plus, over the years, bought and sold nine homes. This diversity of experience, he suggested, is helpful in meeting the chief challenge of elected board service: hearing diverse opinions and finding reasoned common ground. That challenge also is related to a major advantage of serving on a volunteer board, he added. The best thing is helping to keep a board in balance. All of the candidates are full-time and year-around SCC residents whose only absences are for shortterm family vacations. CA directors are not paid. Until the election on December 6 and 7, they will be making the rounds of various meetings and forums to introduce themselves and their platforms, beginning this week with a Meet the Candidates event at 7 PM, Wednesday (Nov. 9) in Community Hall. They also are scheduled to join the SCC Forum Club for lunch on Thursday (Nov. 10) as well as appear at meetings next week.

NEW SHOWROOM Come see our... 720 4th St. SW Ruskin, FL 33570813-645-3529www.KnoxAluminum.comNEW ADDRESS apparently didnt want to be associated with Ruskin and thus, the name South Shore came into being, despite the fact that the actual south shore of Tampa Bay is several miles further down the road. One company even tried to use South Shore as its mailing address; an idea that was nixed by the post office, certainly much to the developers chagrin. On one hand, I can understand it all I have a marketing degree and I realize that Ruskin does little to suggest palm trees, beaches, warm ocean breezes and pseudotraditional-Florida-tropical-stripmall-development at which buyers from the frozen north would love to throw money. But on the other hand, I like living in a town named for a poet-philosopher-artistarchitect-genius who may well have gone insane. This past weekend, Ruskin was alive. People streamed in by the thousands for the Seafood A talk about hearingMITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTOMichelle Traphagen (far right) at the monthly meeting of the Hearing Loss Association of America Sun City Center Chapter. %  My wife and I were honored to speak at the monthly meeting of the Hearing Loss Association of America, Sun City Center Chapter last week. The topic of our talk was on hearing loss as a couple. As someone with a severe hearingimpairment, I frequently rely on Michelle to hear the world. It turned out that Im not alone as evidenced by the couples in attendance living under similar circumstances. Approximately 28 million Americans suffer from some form of hearing loss and it is not just an affliction for older people Observations%  Festival, while very cool classic cars cruised the streets in search of the Cruise-In at a local restaurant. Everywhere in town, the beautiful fall weather seemed to bring people out. On seeing it all, it felt great to be here. On a Friday night a few weeks ago, the South Shore Arts Council and the Ruskin Chamber of Commerce held an event at the new Firehouse Cultural Center. It was so cool to see so many people out enjoying themselves on a weekend night in the middle of Ruskin. I think it showed the tremendous potential in this town. Ruskin resident Frank Garcia, a renowned paleontologist and philosopher/song writer to boot, once told me the story of a man from Ruskin who was so curious after meeting so many people from the north that he decided to see what it was like up there. He traveled as far north as he had ever been, making it all the way to the Centers for Disease Control estimates that nearly 15 percent of all children ages 6 to 19 may suffer from some form of hearing loss in one or both ears. For more information about the Hearing Loss Association of America Sun City Center Chapter, visit www.hla-scc.com. Zephyrhills before deciding hed seen enough and turned around to go home. Last weekend as Michelle (the same Michelle from the beginning of this story who is now my wife) and I were walking down the dock to our boat at what is now Little Harbor Resort, she said, If I look out of the corner of my eyes, this could be 15 years ago.

IN YOUR BACKy Y ARDSECTION BNNOVEMb B ER 10, 2011SRnt www.ObserverNews.net It was another perfect weekend for the Thousands of people poured into E.G. Simmons Park last weekend for the annual Ruskin Seafood Festival. It was the 23rd running of the event and, by most estimates, was the largest to date with nearly 125 vendors on site. Perfect fall weather also enhanced the festival which included everything from nearly continuous live music, reverse bungie jumping, a special childrens area and even crab races. The star of the event was, of course, seafood offered by a variety of vendors, including Ruskins own Mullet Shack. And while seafood was the entree, dessert was not forgotten with everything from freshly popped kettle corn to strawberry shortcake from Hydro Harvest Farms to traditional funnel cakes something without which no Seafood Festival would be complete.

NOVEMBER 10, 2011 3B Family-style fare to be featured at new Sun City Center restaurantNick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos. PENNY FLETCHER PHOTOSNick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos, owners of the Alpha Pizza House in Apollo Beach, have leased the restaurant at the Sandpiper golf course in Sun City Center and are working hard along with their hired crew to renovate it. The restaurant has been closed since the former developer, WCI Communities, went bankrupt about three years ago. The once-private club restaurant will be open to the public and geared toward family dining for the first time. %  penny@observernews.netSUN CITY CENTER South County families will soon have a new place to eat. What was once part of a private club that only Sun City Center residents could pay dues to join will be open to the public for the first time since it was built. Called the Sun City Center Golf & Racquet Club for many years, the restaurant portion of the facilities has stood vacant since shortly after the former owner of the club, WCI Communities, filed for bankruptcy Aug. 4, 2008. Now owned and operated by Club Link Inc., the golf course and pro shop have been operating as the Sandpiper. The pool and tennis courts are closed, and no plans to reopen them have been announced. The golfing portion of the Sandpiper is still a private club, but unlike before, it is open to anyone, not just Sun City Center residents. In late September the restaurant facilities were leased to Nick Egarhos and Steve Dendrinos after nearly a year of negotiations. We finally had an agreement everyone was satisfied with, Egarhos said. Egarhos and Dendrinos are the owners of the Alpha Pizza House in Apollo Beach. They have had that restaurant for 20 of its 28-year existence. We have a lot of customers from Sun City Center who have over the years asked me to play golf there with them. Many of them have been encouraging me to open the restaurant and after examining everything, we decided to do it, Egarhos said. The restaurant has not been renamed, and as of Nov. 3 was still called the restaurant at the Sandpiper. It is located at 1702 S. Pebble Beach Blvd. in Sun City Center. Egarhos and Dendrinos said there will be a snack bar and a restaurant, both with a full liquor bar. The snack bar, called Bunkers, is targeted to open by the end of November and the restaurant is on track for opening by the end of this year, Egarhos said. Still to do before opening the snack bar is finishing the cleanup and fixing the refrigeration. The two men are working along with their hired crew, scraping and painting. Steves wife Becky is also deep into the work redecorating as she has done with the partners for many years. Egarhos and Dendrinos have been together since 1983 when Dendrinos was with ABC Pizza and Egarhos was a manager for ABC. I sold my interest in ABC and we took over Alpha Pizza together, Dendrinos said. If all goes according to plan, Bunkers will be open by the end of November with operating hours between from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. serving hot and cold sandwiches, soup, draft and canned beer. It will also have a full liquor bar. The partners say they hope to open the restaurant facilities by the end of this year. Neither Bunkers nor the restaurant will be a membership club any longer but instead, family-style and open to the public. It wont be snobby, said Egarhos. We want it to be affordable for families. The restaurant will be open 365 days a year from 11 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. and serve steaks, seafood and chicken as well as many other items. After having been closed several years, the restaurant needs a major cleanup, repainting, and eight of the 10 different refrigeration units need repaired or replaced, Egarhos said. Its expensive, but it will be worth it, he added.

GLISSON, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisement. Before you decide, ask us to send you FREE written information about our qualifications and experience. GAINESVILLE, Fla. The Toral Family Foundation, a Florida nonprofit organization that supports efforts to help families affected by traumatic brain injuries, has given a substantial gift to the University of Florida College of Medicine to support a new term professorship and establish a research center. The College of Medicine has announced that Latha Ganti Stead, M.D., a professor and chief of clinical research in the department of emergency medicine, has been appointed the first Toral Family Foundation Professor in Traumatic Brain Injury. I decided to make the gift, because for the past 16 years Ive represented families who had a loved one with traumatic brain injuries, said Frank Toral, a Fort Lauderdale attorney who started the foundation with his wife, Olivia, to support brain injury research and education. Weve really seen how access to resources has improved quality of life. Toral received his bachelors degree in political science from UF in 1989 and today is senior partner of the firm Toral Garcia Battista. The firm, with offices in Fort Lauderdale, Tampa and Tallahassee, handles serious personal injury cases with a focus on helping survivors of brain and spinal cord injuries negotiate with large insurance companies and major corporations. Stead, who focuses on research that can have an immediate impact on patient care, said she shares Torals passion for helping traumatic brain injury survivors get the longterm therapy and comprehensive care they need. Concentrating primarily on acute stroke and traumatic brain injury, Stead is the co-principal investigator for a clinical trial in mild and moderate traumatic brain injury at UF being done in association with Banyan Biomarkers Inc., a UF spinoff company. She is also the principal investigator for the UF Department of Emergency Medicines traumatic brain injury and acute stroke registries. Sometimes a disease or condition doesnt get the attention it deserves until there is a champion for it, Stead said, adding that she is working to establish the Center for Brain Injury Research and Education, an interdisciplinary, cross-college project that would combine the efforts of UF clinicians, educators and researchers working on the different aspects of care for patients with traumatic brain injuries. Prior to coming to UF, Stead was a professor of emergency medicine and neurosurgery at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry from 2008 until 2010. Before that, she served as professor of emergency medicine and chair for the division of emergency medicine research at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine, where she became the first full professor of emergency medicine in the history of the college. According to the Brain Injury Association of Florida Inc., about 210,000 people in the state have been disabled by traumatic brain injuries. Such injuries are also among the most common received by U.S. soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. One of the reasons I wanted to partner with UF was to increase the awareness and visibility of brain injury, Toral said. There is a direct correlation between access to resources and improved outcomes in persons with traumatic brain injuries. Often insurance only covers initial care, he said, although many traumatic brain injury survivors need years of costly therapy and round-the-clock care. Over the years, my frustration has been once they are discharged from the hospital, many of them fall through the cracks, he said. Toral hopes his gift encourages more donations for traumatic brain injury research and the center at UF. He envisions the center as a place where traumatic brain injury patients will be able to get multidisciplinary care and benefit from the research the college is doing. Toral earned his Juris Doctorate degree in 1992 from Nova Southeastern University Shepard Broad Law School Center. He has served as an assistant state attorney in Broward County from 1992 to 1993. He also spent two years working at a large private practice in Hollywood, Fla., before launching his own practice in 1995. Toral is immediate past president of the Brain Injury Association of Florida and serves on the Sarah Jane Brain Project National Legal Advisory Board. He served on the board of the Brain Injury Association of America and is a past member of the University of Miami/ Jackson Memorial Hospital Pediatric Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Advisory Board. Michael L. Good, M.D., dean of the UF College of Medicine, signs paperwork to help establish the Toral Family Foundation Professorship in Traumatic Brain Injury, alongside Frank Toral, an advocate for brain injury research and education. Watching are Joseph A Tyndall, M.D., chairman for the department of emergency medicine, and Latha Ganti Stead, M.D., chief of clinical research for the department of emergency medicine; and the first Toral Family Foundation professor.

Whenever I boil water on the stove, it reduces the static shocks, adding moisture to the air. Ive boiled water before without cooking something, but that seemed wasteful, so now I just prepare more foods like pasta, boiled eggs, etc. that do require boiling when the air is especially dry.

11 The signs of varicose veins arent always obvious. Even if you dont see veins on the surface of your legs, theres 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. All veins have valves. Healthy valves keep blood owing only upward and support the weight of the column of blood. When these valves are broken, blood pools below. This congestion and increased pressure result in discomfort and cause uid to build up and leak from the deeper capillaries. The result gradual and continuous deterioration of your legs over the years. Both visible and hidden varicose veins are dangerous they increase your risk of blood clots. Most varicose veins are hidden. Tired, painful legs are a symptom that something is wrong. We test your vein valves while you are standing. If you have ever had an ultrasound of vein valves performed while you were lying down, you have had inadequate testing. This is a gravity issue, after all! Our more advanced methods detect valve problems frequently missed by less wellequipped clinics. Vein testing is easy and painless and takes place right in our ofce. At your exam appointment, our doctor will explain the ultrasound results and discuss treatment options with you. At Mountcastle Vein Centers, we offer four simple, advanced 20-minute procedures performed in our private, small clinic atmosphere. All four are painless, effective, minimally invasive and non-surgical. You can expect to return to normal activity the same day. Dont let leg discomfort keep you from enjoying life. In most cases, our procedures are considered medically necessary and are covered by health insurance and Medicare. This is a progressive disease. So call today for your free consultation.

Stonerock, MD Dear Friend, Confessions are tough, real tough, but, sometimes they help clear the air so theres no misunderstanding. I want to tell you about a confession I have, but let me say a few other things first. Many years ago something happened that changed my life forever and, in turn, changed many other lives too. At that time, I was deciding what road to take for a career and wanted to settle down to start a family. I was desperate to find a career in health care that really helped people naturally. I had learned as a child that our medical model wasnt always the best answer. As fate would have it, I was injured playing a sport at the age of 7. My parents were friends with a Chiropractic Physician, who took care of me for my injury. However, to my surprise, my allergies cleared up, my headaches stopped, and when all my friends were sick, I stayed healthy. Was this a coincidence? Or did the chiropractic adjustments I had been receiving have something to do with this? I asked the doctor if I could volunteer to help him in his office. I saw many patients get an exam, have a couple of films taken and then have an adjustment of their spine. Over and over I witnessed what many people call miracles happen to patients, from infants to the elderly. These specific adjustments were helping so many people that I decided to go to Chiropractic School myself and things have never been the same since. Its strange how life is, because now people come to see me with their family health concerns and I get to help them reach their God given potential naturally. My husband and I had a wellness practice in Ohio for 10 years, where we had the chance to help thousands of people with headaches, ear infections, migraines, sinus problems, chronic pain, asthma, allergies, whiplash, numbness and tingling in their limbs and for athletic injuries and performance, just to name a few. Approximately 3 years ago we moved to Florida to escape the cold weather and grey skies of the northeast. It has now been close to a year that my practice has been open here in the South Shore area in Ruskin. I have had the pleasure to help many people with their health concerns. Heres what some patients have to say! Low Back and Leg Pain I have had a chronic problem with my back over the years and this pain in my hip and leg. After going to several doctors and chiropractors, Dr. Heather was the only one who was able to help me. I am now able to walk again pain free! Michelle P.Low Back Pain and Digestive ProblemsI was put on pain medication which only covered up my problems and created digestive problems which led to more medica-A Doctors Confession to the South Shore of TampaAmericans are SmarterLook, its not easy being a chiropractor. There are a lot of experts out there who know nothing about our profession, but give people advice and misinformation. But you know the truth always seems to win out. People are sick and tired of just having their symptoms covered up with drugs. They know better. Millions and millions of Americans no longer have health insurance and those who do have found that their benefits are reduced. Thats were I come in. Many people find that they actually save money on their health care expenses by seeing a chiropractor. We have a significantly lower fee plan so that more people are able to afford the care they need.Another Way to SaveStudies show that chiropractic care can double your immune system, naturally and without drugs. The immune system fights colds, the flu and all sickness. So you may not be running off to the M.D. as much. Studies show that people actually pay less for their long term overall health care expenses if they are seeing a chiropractor. We have an incredible 99% patient satisfaction rating!Great Care at a Great FeePlease, I hope that there is no misunderstanding about the quality of care just because I have a lower fee. My qualifications include a Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Life University. I am certified by all four National Boards and the State of Florida Board. We have the latest in technology, and I am always looking to improve my care for my patients. We are in network with many insurance plans and I have been entrusted to care for small babies to top athletes. I just have this lowered fee to help more people who need care. My StaffOur office is both warm and friendly and we try our best to make you feel at home. Our office is called Advanced Chiropractic and is located at 110 West Shell Point Road in Ruskin. We are just 4 buildings down on the left hand side. Our phone number is 813841-1118. Call for an appointment today. Yours in Health, Dr. Heather Haverfield & Dr. Rich Rogan PS. Mention that you saw this in The Observer News and receive a free Thermography Scan. P.P.S. Your time is as valuable as mine. That is why I have a nowait policy. We do everything possible to make sure you are seen with in a few minutes of your appointment.The patient and or any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed for payment that is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to this advertisement for the free thermal scan.Dr. Rich Rogan and Dr. Heather Haverfield with their two children.tions. After I started to get treatments with Dr. Heather my pain was almost gone in one adjustment, and now I am not taking any medication for my stomach and I am back out playing golf! AliceAllergiesMy allergist asked me why I wasnt getting my allergy shots, I told them I started seeing Dr. Heather for chiropractic adjustments, and my allergies have cleared Jen H.Auto Accident VictimAfter my auto accident my headaches were severe and I had numbness into my hands. Dr. Haverfield was able to help me feel like a normal person again. P.A. Several times a day patients thank me for helping them with their health problems, but I really cant take the credit. My confession is that Ive never healed anyone of anything. What I do is perform a specific spinal adjustment to remove nerve pressure and when the interference is removed, the body responds by healing itself. Chiropractic gets tremendous results. Its as simple as that! Your body was made to heal itself as long as theres no interferenceinterference caused by falls, auto accidents, sport injuries, arthritic changes, and physical stress at any age! Chiropractors remove nerve interference and thats why we get wonderful results. I am trained in Palmer Technique, Activator (gentle care), Diversified and Drop Technique. I am also a certified yoga instructor and currently teaching at Riverside Club on Thursdays. I use Standard Process whole food supplements and the Erchonia Cold Laser to assist your body in healing. Other alternative choices we offer are hair analysis, detox foot bath, and natural face lift.
