the beauty of the tropics, N .i li,2in
A.Ng. can imagine. The Florida
i. urist board only wishes it
could include the scent in the

plays for people in northern
states. Tourism would jump
overnight. Plumeria, also
known as frangipani, is
the flower of the tropics. It
is difficult to imagine that

Vhbeauty, but there is one thing:
heft. In Apollo Beach, a plumeria
plN.iderer is on the loose.
Angela Yoho replanted the first of her
own plumeria three years ago in some of the flower boxes along Apollo
Beach Boulevard. Yoho isn't looking for recognition for her beautification
efforts, but she is hoping that whoever took the plants will stop.
"I can't believe if people are trying to make things more beautiful,
then don't mess it up," she said, speaking to the person or persons
who took the plants. "There is an older guy suffering from cancer who
drives around to water these plants. Please don't mess this up."

Ruskin in national and international spotlights


By MELODY JAMESON mi@observernews.net
RUSKIN If the traffic load on U.S. 41 through this historic
community should noticeably increase soon, many of those vehicles
could be headed for Crabby Gus' place on the Little Manatee.

To handle expected growth...

County to quadruple size of

wastewater treatment plant
* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
RUSKIN Construction started in April after nearly five years
of planning but just recently became visible from Interstate 75.
As trees came down and land cleared, the open area just north
of the Ruskin interstate exit became larger and larger, and heavy
equipment was brought on site.
Residents asked, "is it a new housing development?"
Others asked if it was a shopping plaza.
I decided to find out.
County spokeswoman Michelle Van Dyke said it was a large
expansion of the South County Advanced Wastewater Treatment
Plant and was quick to find the proper person for me to interview.
As it turned out, that person is project manager and degree civil
engineer, Lisa Murrin.
Murrin met me on site and showed me around what is soon to be
a very, very large expansion of the plant, done in two phases.
"We now treat 4 V2 million gallons," Murrin told me. "After this
part of the expansion we'll be able to treat 10 million gallons a
day."
Another expansion is planned as well, which will bring the
capacity of the plant to 16 million gallons a day.
This is because of growth expected by the county, Murrin said.
The DRIs are there for a lot of industrial growth. DRIs are
"Development Regional Impact" plans that were mapped out in the
See WASTEWATER TREATMENT, page 22


Why? Because from points across
the U.S. to mountain peaks in
Switzerland to a couple of airline
corporate offices, the chance to
hand pull traps of Blue and Stone
crabs from the waters of the Little
Manatee under the watchful eye of
a weathered Florida Cracker has
become worth the trip.
The opportunity to eat the freshly
caught delicacy prepared dockside,
along with hot hush puppies, crisp,
tangy cole slaw and icy beverage
probably doesn't hurt the appeal,
either.
At least a Swiss television film
crew in town last week thought so.
They'll be sharing the experience in
a travelogue on Swiss TV, as well
as in webcasts for Switzerland and
Germany.
Then, there's the Spirit Magazine
feature with the same focus that one
of its writers is pulling together for
the reading pleasure of Southwest
Airlines customers in search of in-
flight amusement.
And, lo, the experience that is
unlikely to be available in New
York City or Chicago or Dallas
is to be touted to delegates and
other attendees at the upcoming
Republican National Convention
who will be hanging around hot
Tampa in late August.
"It's been crazy, just crazy," says
Gus Muench, the Tampa native and
lifelong crabber who established
a little sideline he called "Crabby

'Old Florida' in Ruskin
* Continued from page 1


OBSERVER NEWS RIVERVIEW CURRENT SCC OBSERVER 3


;rI


Gus' Adventures" a few years
ago. In between harvesting the
prized seafood from his 300 or
so traps and selling the catch in
bulk, Muench would take a half
dozen guests at a time out on one
of his crab boats to share his river,
his environmental philosophy,
his understanding of the sea life
and avian life so long a part of his
world, while pulling a few traps.
In time, he created a website.
Strangers with a taste for the
different sometimes booked crabby
tours and even high profile folks
like Gov. Bob Martinez, another
Tampa native, would drop by to
appreciate the neat and peaceful
Muench home site on the Little
Manatee's south shore.
That's how Esther Winter, a
Swiss journalist, along with her
German videographer, George
Dender, and sound technician,
Marcel Kohn, found their way
from Tampa, down U.S. 41 along
Tampa Bay's eastern side, through
Ruskin, to the river. "We wanted
'Old Florida'," she said in her
accented English Sunday afternoon
(June 3), trying her first crispy-
on-the-outside, soft- on-the-inside
hush puppy as a soft southern voice
drawled an answer to the inevitable
question.
Comfortable in cut-offs and
sneakers, the blonde Winter sat in
dappled sunlight at a Muench-made
picnic table beside his cook shack
and explained the crew was filming
for a new travel documentary titled
"The HolidayChecker" designed
for Swiss and German travelers.
The film also may be shown on
Edelweiss Air flights, she added,
one of which recently became a
regular at Tampa International
Airport.


Zeroing in on destinations
anywhere in the world, the travel
program's presenters "check
out" the best activities, the best
accommodations, the hottest
attractions, paving the way for
travelers in the audience eager
to arrange a memorable holiday,
Winter said. She had stumbled
across Crabby Gus while
researching aspects of the Tampa
Bay area, she added. What she
read promised to demonstrate "Old
Florida" as they imagined it.
And they were not disappointed.
The crew spent several hours on
the river after all a designated
"Outstanding Florida ik i% .i. \"
- filming close up the crabbing
process and from a distance the
crab boat plying smooth waters
between small islands. They ate
with enthusiasm what had been
harvested and cooked without
preservatives or freezing or delay.
Satiated, they settled on the
wide Muench dock to record an
unhurried interview with a river
man now in his mid-70s who began
cast netting and crabbing as a child,
with his dad as guide.
They left late in the day, headed
to Tampa to complete a week's
worth of filming, capturing other
types of attractions in the area,
including Busch Gardens. They
were still getting used to air
conditioning, in their hotel rooms
and in restaurants, they said;
something that is not particularly
popular in their native habitats.
And the distances that Americans
take in stride amazed them, they
noted, because in their Europe,
walking and bicycling trumps the
automobile. But, they agreed, they
gladly will come back at the first
opportunity.


MELODY JAMESON PHOTOS
With the aplomb of a Florida Cracker who knows his business, Gus
Muench (right) was interviewed at length on camera by journalist
Esther Winter (seated center) for a new Swiss television travelogue.
George Dender (left) recorded the video. The Swiss film crew was in
the Tampa area to obtain footage on several subjects including "Old
Florida" for a European audience interested in unusual experiences


highlighting their travel holidays.

Meanwhile, the Spirit Magazine
piece featuring Crabby Gus and the
river and Ruskin and the Tampa
Bay area is due out in August, just
in time for conventioneers aboard
incoming Southwest flights to
get a taste of what's cool as they
encounter sub-tropical August
humidity.
And Muench is pondering how to
host not a half dozen, but perhaps
visitors by the dozens, all after a
new experience, something that can
be described to brother Kiwanian in
Minneapolis or fellow councilmen
in Cleveland or PTA mothers in
Kansas City. The website that
normally gets 40 to 50 hits a day,
Muench said this week, has been
racking up five times that number.
Then, just to keep things


interesting, producers in
Hollywood California, that
is currently have underway
not one, but two feature length
films on the life and relationships
of John Ruskin, according to
internet reports. The English social
critic, outspoken writer, dabbling
artist and namesake of the local
community he never saw managed,
it seems, to generate a sensual
tale with a totally and wholly
non-sensual marriage. Producers
are promising that the rebellious
woman in question Effie Gray -
and Ruskin will become household
names. The film releases are slated
for later this year.
So, when traffic on U.S. 41
begins to pick up...

POSITIVE TALK


THE PATH


What path do you walk and
why do you walk it? Have you
ever asked yourself that question?
Some of us will find that a harder
question to answer than others.
A friend who just turned 65
brought up the ques-
tion to me. He was tak-
ing stock of his life and
said that, for the life of
him, he could not really 1 -
put a finger on why he
had chosen the life that
he had. His parents had ,...-c;


chosen his profession
and sent him to college
to pursue a degree. The
government decided he


ruO ili
Talk
By William


would enter the military. When his
first term was coming to a close,
the economy-poor at that time-
convinced him he should re-enlist.
About that same time, he was of
an age when society decided he
should be getting married, and a
young woman came along with
that same opinion. Since both she
and society was against him, he
bowed to their will. The church
said that if he was to make love,
children would be the natural
product of such an activity. Not
wanting to alienate his wife or di-
minish his chances for heaven, he
got busy and had six children.
The rest of the story was pretty
much like the first part. When he
retired from the military, he was
faced with supporting a large
family. Even with his pension, he
found he had to go back to work
right away. He didn't much care
for the job he took; but for the sake
of security, he stayed with it-until
the plant closed and he was put out
on the street. At that point he be-
gan thinking about why he chose
the path he did.
The truth is he did not choose
a path. He just stumbled through
the forest letting the elements and
terrain do it for him. It was not a
life of choice by head or heart, but
rather one of chance. I love these
words attributed to the legendary
character, Don Juan.
"You must always keep in mind
that a path is only a path; if you
feel you must not follow it, you
must not stay with it under any
circumstances. Any path is only a
path-there is no affront to your-
self or others in dropping it if that
is what your head tells you to do.
But your decision to keep on the
path or to leave it must be free of

Official Hillsborough County Hurricane
Guides now available
This year is the 20th Anniversary of Hurricane Andrew, whose
catastrophic winds flattened the communities of Homestead and Florida
City in South Florida. Though that hurricane may be a distant memory
for most of us, it should serve as a reminder of the devastation that a hur-
ricane can cause to our communities, our families and our businesses.
Hurricane season started on June 1 and runs through Nov. 30. And
while no one can predict if the Tampa
Bay area will get hit, we all can take
steps to be prepared for this threat.
To help residents prepare, Hillsbor-
ough County has released the 2012
Hurricane Guide, The Official Guide
For The Tampa Bay Area, both in Eng-
lish and Spanish, to local post offices
and libraries. The guides are also
available online at http://www.tbrpc.
org/tampabaydisaster/hurricane_guides2012. shtml.
This 2012 Hurricane Guide covers all aspects of hurricane prepared-
ness. The main points local emergency managers want residents to know
is which evacuation zone they live in, and what they are going to do
when an evacuation is recommended.
"Being prepared for hurricane season is everyone's responsibility
and should be taken seriously by our citizens and residents," said Pres-
ton Cook, Director of Emergency Management. "A little preparation
beforehand will significantly reduce the stress that is normally associ-
ated with hurricanes. This is very important and being self sufficient will
help ensure your family's safety. The reality is government may not be
able to get to everyone immediately, and residents should be prepared to
., provide for themselves for 72 hours following a storm."


fear or ambition. I warn you! Look
at every path closely and deliber-
ately. Try it as many times as you
think necessary. Then ask your-
self, and you alone, one question.
It is this-Does this path have a
heart? All paths are
the same; they lead
nowhere. They are
paths going through
17Z" the brush, or into the
F-", brush. Does this path
Shave a heart is the
question. If it does,
then the path is good;
if it doesn't, it is of no
n Hodges use. Both paths lead
nowhere, but one has
heart and the other doesn't. One
makes for a joyful journey; as long
as you follow it, you will be one
with it. The other will make you
curse your life. One makes you
strong; the other weakens you."
So what about your life? Is it a
journey of head and heart or one
of chance? Is it a joyful journey or
tedious trek? Can you honestly say
you love where you are and enjoy
what you are doing? If you can,
you are among the most blessed
of people. If you cannot, be aware
that it is not too late to begin mak-
ing choices that will result in a
better future. The first choice is to
take charge of your life and quit
letting the winds of fate blow you
around. The second is to take stock
of your options-do not close your
eyes to a path because of the opin-
ions of others. Remember these
lines from Robert Frost: "I shall
be telling this with a sigh. Some-
where ages and ages hence: Two
roads diverged in a wood, and I-I
took the one less traveled by, and
that has made all the difference."
Finally, have faith in yourself and
your own judgment. Your path can
have heart if you will have the
heart to follow it.

Hodges is a nationally recog-
nized speaker, trainer and syndi-
cated columnist. He also hosts an
interview-format television pro-
gram, Spotlight on Government,

Church in SCC uses kid's programs to spread the Word


* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
SUN CITY CENTER When
I met 14 of the 21 youngsters
who currently belong to the new
singing group at the Sun City
Center United Methodist Church
they certainly didn't resemble a
traditional choir holding hymn
books and wearing robes.
In bright silver vests the
congregation had provided for
them, the members of the new
singing group JAM which
stands for Jesus and Me sang
with gusto about joy and happiness
and love, and later told me that's
what they receive when they
attend the church and the new
Kidz Klub that's been started
there.
According to Pat Hill and Linda
Whitt who work with the Klub,
their pastor, Warren Langer,
decided there had to be ways to
involve the younger generation in
the area in worship.
Admittedly, some of the
congregation didn't approve -
Sun City Center being a retirement
community one mother told
me. But the members who stayed
and helped make the changes have
since gone all out to welcome
young families and their children
and provide a place for them in
their worship and their lives.
New members of all ages are
now joining because they like the
intergenerational church.
"It's like the kids have a dozen
grandparents," said Tammy Berry,
whose twin boys, Lincoln and
Graham, started in Kidz Klub, then
joined JAM, and now the whole
family attends the church.
"It's that midweek connection
- going there more than just
on Sunday that makes it


like visiting their grandparents,"
Tammy said.
Herman and Tammy Lucht of
Ruskin found the Kidz Klub (and
JAM) through their Cub Scout
Troop that meets at that church.
Both are den leaders. They said
they were surprised and glad to
find a church in Sun City Center
that reaches out in so many ways
to families.
"Our kids get mad if we skip
coming," said Tammy (Lucht).
"They don't ever want to miss."
Their children, Dustin and
Destiny agreed.
"I feel energetic when I sing with
JAM," Dustin said.
Destiny said she enjoyed
learning about God.
Drew Paulson who lives in
Wimauma with his dad said he


likes the Klub and the singing
group. "I think it's fun," he said.
Pat Hill and Linda Whitt said
it all started when their pastor
suggested a music and arts
program for area youth.
"When I began working with the
ministries at the United Methodist
Church, I was asked by Pastor
Warren Langer to form a children's
choir. My vision was children
standing and singing a simple
song. After 15 minutes with the
children, I knew their potential far
exceeded my vision," Linda said.
"JAM was born, and the exciting
journey began. JAM performs the
second Sunday of each month,
with costumes, props, dancing and
singing to a mix of contemporary
music and the "days of old"
VBS songs. Members of the


congregation support this endeavor
in ways we never imagined as
they say, 'We hope someone is
doing this for our grandchildren.'
From three children in our
church three years ago, we now
have children's programs in all
areas of ministry. Future plans
for JAM include performing at
resident facilities and community
festivals. Our electronic sign
reads 'We Love Children.' In a
recent performance, the JAM
children shouted, 'We Are Your
Future,' and the congregation said,
'Amen'."

News Conference on June 3. Back row from left: Congressman Rich
Nugent, Rick Homans, Bob Rohrlack, and Mayor Bob Buckhorn.
Front row: Congresswoman Kathy Castor, and County Commis-
sioner Al Higginbotham.

BOCC supports MacDill Means Mobility
initiative
Hillsborough County Commissioner Al Higginbotham, District 4,
spearheaded the effort for the Board of County Commissioners to pass a
resolution to support MacDill Air Force Base and the "MacDill Means
Mobility" initiative at the regular Board meeting on June 6. Commis-
sioner Higginbotham is planning to personally deliver the resolution
today to the Hillsborough Congressional Delegation at a reception in
Washington D.C., sponsored by the Tampa Chamber of Commerce.
The "MacDill Means Mobility" initiative is a community-led effort
to encourage the Pentagon and the Air Force to direct new refueling
jets, the KC-46A, to the MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa. On June
4, Commissioner Higginbotham joined Congresswoman Kathy Castor,
Congressman Rich Nugent, Mayor Bob Buckhorn, and other local
economic development and community leaders to urge the support of
MacDill as the home base for the new planes.
MacDill is home to 16 KC-135 Stratotankers and the 927th Air Refuel-
ing Wing and the 6th Air Mobility Wing. The Air Force plans to gradu-
ally phase out the stratotanker and phase in the new KC-46A, which will
be sent to three initial bases two operational bases and a training base.
The Air Force is expected to pare down the list of candidate bases to 10
this summer, with the final decision made by winter of 2013. The new
planes are estimated to be delivered by Boeing in 2017.
As the Commissioner appointed to serve on the Tampa Chamber of
Commerce MacDill Air Force Base Support Committee, Commissioner
Higginbotham has been building economic development opportunities
through military operations for the Tampa Bay area. Among other efforts,
he introduced the 927th Air Refueling Wing leadership to Plant City for
the Strawberry Festival Parade Day, and recently hosted a luncheon with
local retired generals to discuss opportunities for military in Tampa.
Additionally, since being elected in 2006, he has not missed a funeral in
Hillsborough County for a local soldier killed in action.
"MacDill Air Force Base has been a long-standing source of pride for
Hillsborough County and the entire Tampa Bay area," said Commis-
sioner Higginbotham. "Our military protects and defends us abroad and
it's the least we can do to support them on the home front."
Established in 1939, MacDill Air Force Base has an estimated $2.87
billion impact to the Tampa Bay area, providing more than 7,600 indirect
jobs to area residents. Additionally, military retirees within 50 miles of
the Base contribute an additional $2.1 billion to the economy, supporting
an additional 23,000 indirect jobs.

Stolen Beauty in Apollo Beach
U Continued from page 1


The theft of a mature plant
wasn't necessarily a spur of
the moment act. Someone had
to have noticed the plants and
came prepared to take them.
They are hardy and resilient, but
a three-year-old plumeria is not
necessarily small enough to grab
and run. The plants disappeared
about a month ago.
Yoho knows why someone
would be motivated to steal the
plants.
'They are expensive," she said.
'To go and buy one of those that
was stolen, it could be $200.
Even one little stalk could cost
$45. I think it was either someone
who knows how much they cost
or maybe a landscaper, I don't
know."
Plant theft is more widespread
than many people would think.
In some cities, law enforcement
agencies report of thriving
black markets for stolen plants,
everything from ferns to azaleas


become targets for those who lack
the will for green thumbs yet have
sticky fingers. One newspaper in
Washington State ran an article
with reader suggestions as to how
to curb plant theft, ranging from
inserting exploding dye packets
into the roots of the plants to
help later identify the thieves, to
burying small rattlesnakes with
the plants (the latter included an
acknowledgement of possible
legal and ethical problems
involved). In Savannah, Georgia,
a security camera captured one
man as he casually walked up
onto the front porch of a home
and unhooked two large ferns
and simply walked away. For the
victims, it was more than the theft
of plants they had lovingly kept
alive; it was a violation of the
victim's sense of place just as
the thefts in Apollo Beach are a
violation of the entire community.
Perhaps the theft of plants
appears to be a victimless crime,

The yellow tag attached to the stalk says, "Please do not steal." The
plant that had been stolen was there for three years.


yet it is anything but that. In this
case, one person lovingly planted
the beautiful flowering trees and
another lovingly cared for them
year after year, all with nothing
more than the idea of beautifying
their community as compensation.
With so much ugliness in the
world, even the smallest petals of
beauty can and do make a positive
difference. And yet a selfish act of
one or, perhaps, a few, has stolen
beauty from many.
Some people may feel as though
it is a crime of little interest to
law enforcement, but that is not
the case. While now little might
be done, law enforcement officers
appreciate knowing of any and all
issues in their communities and
reporting a crime could help to
deter the next one.
The very first plumeria planted
by Angela Yoho on Apollo Beach
Boulevard is gone now, in its
place is a replanted stalk that will

Still 14 of the 21 regulars

Shannon Powe of Wimauma,
mother of six-year-old Katelyn and
aunt of 10-year-old Savana, both
of whom sing in the group and
go to the Klub, summed up why
the family drives from Wimauma
to attend church, and its various
functions, in Sun City Center.
"I was married here years ago
but there wasn't really anything
for people in my age group," she
explained. "But these people have
really stepped out of the box.
There's not a lot in our area for the
children, and here they're getting
warm guidance and accepting


for those returning to their Apollo
Beach homes of why they live
here. Yes, they are valuable. Yes,
they can be and have been stolen.
But hopefully that will stop now.

not smell so sweet.

brought the kids to Vacation Bible

have activities, games, music

How to Challenge Your Medical Bills


Dear Savvy Senior,
I need some help understand-
ing my medical bills from my knee
replacement surgery earlier this
year. My wife and I live on a pretty
tight budget so I like to keep track
of our costs as closely as possible.
But the bills I've received are
vague and confusing, and we think
we 're being overcharged. What
can you tell us?
Trying To Recover







The Savvy
Senior
By Jim Miller

Dear Trying,
Errors and overcharging have
become so commonplace on
medical bills today that double-
checking them is a very smart
move that may save you some
money. Here are some tips and
tools that can help.
Challenge Your Bills
According to the Medical Billing
Advocates of America, nine out of
10 hospital bills have errors on
them, most of which are in the hos-
pital's favor. Bills from doctor's
offices and labs have mistakes
too, but they tend to be fewer and
further apart.
To help you get a handle on your
medical bills and check for costly
errors, the first thing you need to
do is request an itemized statement
from the hospital or health care
providers detailing the charges of
the procedures, supplies, tests and
services they provided you. They
are legally required to provide you
with this information.
If the statement contains confus-
ing billing codes or abbreviations
that you don't understand, call the
billing office for an explanation.
You can also look up most medi-
cal billing codes online by going
to any online search engine and
typing in "CPT" followed by the
code number.
Once you receive and decode the
statement, review it carefully and
keep your eyes peeled for these
mistakes:
Double billing: Being charged
twice for the same services, drugs,
or supplies.
Typos: Incorrect billing codes
or dollar amounts.


Canceled work: Charging for
a test your doctor ordered, then
canceled.
Phantom services: Being
charged for services, test or treat-
ments that were never received.
Up-coding: Inflated charges for
medications and supplies.
Incorrect length of stay: Most
hospitals will charge for the ad-
mission day, but not for day of dis-
charge. Be sure you're not paying
for both.
Incorrect room charges: Being
charged for a private room, even
if you stayed in a semi-private
room.
Inflated operating room fees:
Being billed for more time than
was actually used. Compare the
charge with your anesthesiolo-
gist's records.
To make sure the charges on
your bill are reasonably priced,
use the Healthcare Blue Book at
healthcarebluebook.com. This is a
free resource that lets you look up
the going rate of health care costs
in your area.
If you find errors or have ques-
tions about charges, contact your
provider's billing office and your
insurer. If they don't help you and
the discrepancies are significant,
you should consider getting help
from a trained professional who
specializes in analyzing medical
bills and negotiates with health
care providers, insurers and even
collection agencies.
Most medical bill reviewing pro-
fessionals charge an hourly fee -
somewhere between $50 and $200
per hour for their services, or
they may work on a contingency
basis, earning a commission of 25
percent to 35 percent of the amount
they save you.
To find help, check out resources
like Medical Billing Advocates
of America (billadvocates.com),
MedReview Solutions (me-
dreviewsolutions.com), Hospital
Bill Review (hospitalbillreview.
com) and Medical Cost Advocate
(medicalcostadvocate.com). You
can find others by doing an Inter-
net search under "hospital bill re-
view."
If you're a Medicare beneficiary,
another resource that may help is
your State Health Insurance Assis-
tance Program (SHIP). They pro-
vide free personalized counseling
and may be able to help you get a
handle on your medical bills and
Medicare coverage. To find a local
SHIP counselor visit shiptalk.org,


or call 800-677-1116.

New Pre-Hab Program prepares
patients for surgery
SouthBay Hospital's new pre-hab program prepares patients for hip and
knee surgery by improving muscle strength, flexibility and cardiopulmo-
nary endurance prior to surgery. The aim of the program is to minimize
injury and increase physical and emotional readiness for surgery.
"We are excited to be expanding the services offered at the Center
for Joint and Spine Care at South Bay Hospital," says Paul Melancon,
Director of Rehabilitative Services. "Through pre-hab, patients can
prepare for surgery with the goal of experiencing less pain and faster
recovery from their surgery."
To participate in pre-hab, a patient must obtain a prescription from
their attending surgeon four to six weeks prior to surgery. The patient is

Sara Peattie gives life to giant puppets


The Firehouse Cultural Center
in Ruskin is hosting Sara Peattie,
Artist-in-Residence, for the sum-
mer of 2012. Peattie is the second
artist the center has hosted. The
first was Leland Faulkner, whose
very successful residency was in
February 2012.
Sara Peattie's July 16 23 resi-
dency at the Firehouse Cultural
Center will feature 2 giant puppet
workshops for families, teams and
individuals of all ages, 2 small and
shadow puppet classes for children
ages 8-11, and a shoptalk session
for artists, teachers, and "the just
plain curious."
Peattie's residency will conclude
with a surprise finale. No details,
because-well-it's a surprise!
This much is known: The finale
will involve workshop and class
participants and their creations.
For more than 30 years, Sara
Peattie's giant puppets have de-
lighted audiences and performers
alike. Peattie specializes in these
giants-an art form that is in par-
ticular demand for spectacular

public events in open venues. Her
creations have brought joy and ex-
citement to parades, pageants and
other community extravaganzas.
The key to her success in these
events is her emphasis on com-
munity collaboration, creativity-
making puppets-and participa-
tion.
Working out of her Boston area
headquarters, Peattie keeps a busy
schedule of performances and
workshops throughout the country.
The Lincoln Center's Out of Doors
Festival in New York and Boston's
First Night are examples of major
venues and events featuring her
creations. She was a member of
the well-known touring troupe,
Bread & Puppet Theatre.
Peattie's giant puppets are de-
scendants of a long and impressive
history in theater. Already familiar
in parades and such, the Broadway
production of The Lion King has
done much to popularize the art
form.
Peattie does not limit her art-
istry to the giants. Small puppets
and shadow puppets have impor-
tant places in Peattie's work as an
artist and a teacher. Giants, small
puppets, shadow puppets-all will
contribute to a rich array of oppor-
tunities for participants, young and
old, in Sara Peattie's residency at
the Firehouse Cultural Center.

Firehouse Cultural Center, 101

My Shadow


Looking back on almost
a half century of life, I
realized that the most
content I have ever been was
standing on a comer of College
Avenue getting ready to walk
across the street from
Ruskin Elementary
with a little girl who
was my shadow. In r l
my heart, she is my
daughter. I knew that "
even before I met
her, and when I did Observat
finally meet her, that By Mitch Tra
certainty was absolute.
But it didn't happen. mitchbserve
She didn't become
my daughter. I can't even say that
it wasn't meant to be because it
feels, to me, like it was meant to
be. Things beyond my control
took over and it didn't happen. I
can't moan too much because in
the end an incredible family in
Miami raised her. On Tuesday,
we all sat together to watch her
graduate from high school.
On the first day I met her, I
immediately gained two goals
in my life. One was to watch her
graduate. The second is to dance
with her at her wedding. So right
now, I'm at fifty percent and I am
eternally grateful to her family for
inviting me into her life.
But back on College Avenue,
driving her to
school was also
a highlight of
my day. Every
morning I would
revel in what
her imagination
could conjure
up. She would
invent really
cool cars or think
of things that
only a child with
a beautiful mind
could conceive. I
was in heaven.
The real
highlight of my
day was waiting
for her after
school. I would
stand around on
the street comer
with a dozen
moms, some of
MICHELLE
whom didn't My Shadow has,
speak English so a remarkable, sr
smiles provided tiful young wor
the words we always knew shi
needed as a
universal language. Sometimes
she would come out of her classes
crabby and I would tease her just
a little bit until she would stop,
put her hands on her hips and say,
"Poppa!" with a stem look over
her glasses. And then she would
laugh. We would both laugh.
Sometimes we'd give each other
a high five, hers with stubby little
fingers on her little kid's hand.
In the time since, nothing
has matched that feeling of
contentment. I'm not sure how
anything could; I was exactly
where I wanted to be. What made
it even more special to me was
that I was acutely aware that it
would not last. Although I had no
idea then that my time with her
would be so short, I knew that she
would eventually grow up and the
magic car designs would leave
her mind, replaced first by the
thoughts of a teenager, and then
those of a young adult making her
way in life.
I was content to wait. I could
envision myself with gray hair,
laughing with her at jokes that
only we could appreciate. I knew
that day would come, when the


turbulence of youth passes into a
serenity and comfort of adulthood
that would allow us to give each
other high fives again. I was
content to wait because being able
to see her grow up and develop
her own identity and
her own life would have
been a privilege of the
P highest order.
It's funny, isn't it?
How good times can be
so appreciated for their
tionS transience but bad times
phagen often feel as though they
will last forever? Shortly
news.net after she left, I had first-
hand experience with the
latter. Her life wasn't a joy ride,
either. Before we had even met
she had fallen through the cracks
in the system and she paid a price
for it. Before it was over, some of
the people involved lost their jobs
but that certainly didn't right any
wrongs. As they almost always
seem to do, however, things
worked out in the end.
On Tuesday, I was sitting in
a large event center in Miami
pinching myself to ensure it
wasn't a dream that fifty percent
of my life's goals were coming
true. As she walked into the
auditorium, I saw her turn and
wave, with her cute, stubby little
fingers on her beautiful young
woman's hand.
Her smile lit
up my heart.
i- I wiped tears
away from my
eyes; I was so
happy for her
and so very
proud of her.
But some of the
tears were out
of selfishness;
I was acutely
aware of what I
had missed. She
has overcome
so much and
her smile glows
cme, with such
brilliance. She
has become
a remarkable
young lady.
In a short few
weeks, she will

grown up to be start college
nart, and beau- and will be
-nan. Just as I well underway
e would. towards
creating her
own life. Driving home, I thought
about her beautiful mind and
smiled at the memories. I had
become, at most, a footnote in her
life, but I could not be sad about
that because she was so happy.
My shadow had found another
source of light and that, perhaps,
is how it should have been.
Although I may not get the high
fives when my hair turns gray, I
can sleep well at night knowing
that she is OK. When it comes
right down to it, there is really
nothing more important than that.
Singer songwriter Jimmy
Buffett once said that if you don't
write a song about your daughter,
you will go to hell. I didn't have
the chance to write a song about
her, but I did sing her to sleep at
night with a Buffett song named
Little Miss Magic. She certainly
was, and is, that to me. I had that
happiness and contentment once
and nothing can take that away.
If I am a footnote, I will be so
joyfully.
Rounding the broad corner
on 1-75 from the Everglades to
the Gulf coast meant that I was
coming home. I have so many


happy memories along this coast,
enough for my lifetime. My hair
is just now starting to turn gray
and, if nothing else, I can look
back with satisfaction at what I
once had. I knew it wouldn't last
forever, but I can still feel it. And
then my cell phone buzzed with a
text message.
"I love you so much. I will
always be your little girl."
I exited off the freeway and
re-read her message. Perhaps
she was being polite she is a
considerate young woman, after
all. But no matter what, as I wiped
away tears, I became aware that I
am a lucky guy. It's good to feel
content.


On Tuesday in a large event center in Miami, fifty percent of my life's
goals were realized. And then I was given a gift I would never have
expected.

Big gifts for best dads, everywhere!
Shopping for a distinctive Father's Day gift that stands out from the
norm? Save the Manatee Club suggests an affordable manatee gift
adoption for $25 that includes a color photo of a real Florida manatee, an
adoption certificate, biography, membership handbook, and subscriptions
to the Club's newsletters. Shipping is free within the United States.
"My sister and I and our children have adopted a different manatee
for the last few years as a Father's Day gift," said Katherine Reeve who
lives close to her father, Stuart Bean, in the county of North Yorkshire
in England. "We decided on this gift because the funds help manatees,
and also because our dad is totally mad about manatees! When we first
visited Florida in 2000, all dad wanted to see was a manatee, and he's
been talking about how fantastic manatees are ever since. As a result of
his keen interest, the whole family is interested, too."
There are now 37 real living manatees with known histories to select
from in Save the Manatee Club's adoption program. Photos of each can
be viewed on the Club's website at www.savethemanatee.org/adoptees.
htm. Recently, Squeaky, Rocket, and Annie were added to the adoption
program at Blue Spring State Park in Orange City, Florida. This Father's
Day, each new member who joins the Adopt-A-Manatee program for a
$35 tax-deductible donation, will also receive the new 2012 Club T-shirt
featuring a fun, tropical design by
- Jrenowned wildlife artist Nancy
-.-Blauers.
Claire O'Donnell from Seattle,
s rWashington adopted a manatee for
her dad, Bob O'Donnell, who, like
S etonKatherine's father, also lives in the
Sa n En ed UK. "My brother and I adopted a
manatee for Father's Day last year
because like most dads he can be
~Ad A difficult to buy for," said Claire.
"We liked the idea of a manatee
as a gift we felt it was unusual,
and it would also help protect the
species. I'm a big supporter of the
conservation work Save the Mana-
.tee Club is doing, and I feel that if
we can save even one manatee, it's
a worthwhile investment."
Manatees are Florida's official
state marine mammal and they're
listed as endangered at the state,
federal, and international levels.
C contac I-80032-INSave the Manatee Club, a Flori-
savethemanatee.org da-based international nonprofit
manatee conservation organiza-
tion, was founded 31 years ago by
singer/songwriter Jimmy Buffett and former Florida Governor and U.S.
Senator Bob Graham to help protect the state's endangered marine mam-
mals. Funds from the adoption program will help fund manatee rescue,
rehabilitation, and release efforts; research; education and public aware-
ness projects; conservation work to protect manatees and their habitat;
and programs in the United States, Central and South America, the Wider
Caribbean, and West Africa."
"Just as the life of each individual manatee is of utmost importance to
the overall health and welfare of the manatee population, we are ever-
thankful for the Club's compassionate and outstanding supporters who
are essential to our ability to make a vital difference in the lives of our
beloved manatees," said Patrick Rose, aquatic biologist and Executive
Director of Save the Manatee Club.
For more information about manatees, and to adopt one for Father's
Day, contact Save the Manatee Club at 500 N. Maitland Ave., Maitland,
FL 32751, call 1-800-432-JOIN (5646), or visit their web site at www.

FISH TAL


It is June and the weather has
soared into the 90s with fish of
every species enjoying the warm
water temperatures. If you
have never caught a
grand slam, now is the
time to do it. r
A grand slam consists
of a trout, redfish and
a snook, all caught the [
same day. This is the
time of the year that our Fish T1
waterways are teeming By Jonie
with all kinds and types
of fish.
I overheard some anglers telling
'Fish Tales' with one reporting on
his giant hogfish that he caught out
in the deep. It might be possible, but
I looked up this fish and found the
average weight is 2 pounds and the
largest reported on record weighed
20 pounds and was caught at Johns
Pass. I hope he took it home as the
food value of this fish is good.
Tarpon have been the center of
attraction this week. Some have
been caught and hopefully all
released, as the food value of this
fish is not good. This is a trophy
fish and are around Tampa Bay and
some reports of many at Egmont
Key.
Most often they are caught, a
photo snapped for the taxidermist
and released. This fish may take
hours to boat; it's a fighting game
fish. I hope you make sure it still
has enough strength left for you to
release the tarpon safely back into
the water. Make sure he swims off
before you leave him.
Many redfish catches have been
made this week. You may only keep
one per person per day, as this fish
is still restricted on this coast only.
Food value is great and they are
large enough to bake. Some cooks
stuff with crabmeat dressing. Your
catch must be not less than 18" or
more than 27". It is the fish with a
black spot near the tail fin.
Some anglers still fish by the
moon. When the moon is new and
full they tell me fishing was great.
Our fishing has been great all
month even with a quarter moon.
We have a multitude of fish that
haven't left our waterways. They

Nhat is a grand slam
love the 800 water temperature and
the 900 weather.
The trout have gone to deeper
waters, but are still
-t in grassy flats. As the
heat soars they travel
to cooler grounds. You
might look for green
spots and drop a mirror
lure or a live shrimp.
ales Good catches have
been made on the south
Maschek side of the bay. Those
patches are dark green,
so I am told.
Cobia haven't gone south, no,
they are still in our waterways. For
those who don't want to fish for
tarpon, try catching a cobia which
is a game fish and will give you.
the same exciting jumps and soars
as a tarpon. Some will not agree,
but try to boat a cobia.
Lots of ladyfish are in our waters,
with some using them for bait to
catch the bigger catches.
A few permit catches were made
this week. Their usual habitat is
around wrecks, and they eat on
small blue crabs. They will take
shrimp, but seem to like the crabs
better. They have a keen eyesight
and often will shy away from your
bait. Anglers make a long leader
to make the crab look like natural
prey. One per harvest, per day,
with not more than two per boat.
Season is over July 31.
Sheepshead are a great catch
for those fishing from piers. This
fish is a lean white meat fish and
a great tablefare. It is often called
the convict fish because it has
black and white stripes.
At last report, there are more
than 4,000 different fish out there.


As I watched the boats come in at
Williams Park on north Highway
41, I didn't see any two with the
same catches.
Some were fishing for tarpon
only and had no catch, since they
had taken a photo and released the
fish. Other anglers fished for trout
only, while we met some that kept
all they caught and had a variety
from trout to redfish. Many took
advantage of our 900 weather and
enjoyed the weekend fishing.
Mangrove snapper are still out
there and I saw a few catches this
week. Black drum are huge this
time of the year. This fish often has
worms when they are large. If you
are going to eat one, try the small
ones.
founder catches have been good
this week. You can catch them on
in-going and out-going tides. This
is a flatfish with one eye and a
lean white meat fish and a great
tablefare.
Freshwater fishing in the upper
river waterways has been great.
For those who love freshwater
catfish, catches have been great.
Some tell me that they dig their
own worms and don't ever fish
with artificial bait.
Freshwater lakes and rivers also
yield largemouth bass with catches
being plentiful.
We also have many pan fish
catches from our fresh waterways.
We may not have mountain
streams, but freshwater fish love
it here.
Watch the weather, and fish
together.
If you're too busy to go fishing,
you're just too busy!

LETTER TO THE EDITOR:

Taxing is what hurts us
Dear Editor,
New York City Mayor Bloomberg's decision to ban supersized sug-
ary sodas has resurrected the age-old debate over the role of the state
in protecting the public health. In recent years, this debate involved bi-
cycle helmets, car seat belts, tobacco, trans fats, saturated fats in meat
and dairy products, and sugar (or more aptly, high-fructose corn syrup).
Public subsidies for tobacco, meat and dairy, and corn production added
fuel to the debate.
I would argue that society has a right to regulate activities that impose
a heavy burden on the public treasury. National medical costs of deal-
ing with our obesity epidemic, associated with consumption of meat,
dairy, and sugars, are estimated at $190 billion. Eliminating subsidies
for these products, as well as judicious taxation to reduce their use and
recoup public costs should be supported by health advocates and fiscal
conservatives alike.
Benjamin Franklin claimed that nothing is certain except death and
taxes. Ironically, death can be deferred substantially by taxing products
that make us sick.

Local election ballots take shape as candidates qualify


* By MELODY JAMESON
mj@observernews.net
By mail-in ballot, through early
voting or at their precincts, South
County's registered voters soon
will be hand picking among local,
state and national candidates
vying to represent them in the
years ahead.
Overall, what's shaping up
are crowded ballots in an active
presidential election season.
In addition to the Democrat
and Republican primary elections
ending on August 14 when voters
pare down the lists of candidates
running under the two major
party banners, the general election
ending November 6 will offer
up those party winners as well
as those without any party label
plus whatever write-in candidates
voters opt to add to their ballots,
and 11 proposed amendments to
the Florida constitution.
Citizens, however, need not
wander aimlessly through the
electoral thicket. At least one
public candidates' forum designed
to give local voters a chance to
meet face-to-face and to question
their would-be representatives is
being planned.
South County voters will
be weighing in on two county
commission races, beginning with
the August primaries.
Two Republicans, Margaret


lucalano and Don Kruse, are
seeking the District 6/countywide
seat currently held by Kevin
Beckner. Whoever survives
the Republican primary will
face Beckner, a Democrat, in
November. When the qualifying
period ended last week, Beckner
had not drawn any opposition
from within his own party for the
at-large position which serves the
interests of South Hillsborough as
well as other parts of the county.
A second commission race
will appear on the general
election ballot when Joy Green,
running with no party affiliation,
and Mark Nash, a Democrat,
challenge Al Higginbotham, the
sitting District 4 commissioner.

Higginbotham, a Republican
from Plant City, serves the
largest commission district
geographically, extending from
Plant City southwest to include
the communities of Riverview,
Balm, Wimauma, Fort Lonesome
and Sun City Center as well
as the area south of S.R. 674
encompassing Sundance and
the long-established Sun City,
sometimes referred to colloquially
as "Old Sun City."
Commissioner Sandy Murman,
a Republican representing
District 1 which also involves
the South County communities
of Gibsonton, Apollo Beach
and Ruskin, has no opposition
and will not be listed on either

ballots. She is automatically re-
elected.
South County's two other
commissioners, the at-large
representatives Ken Hagan and
Mark Sharpe, currently are
serving terms which do not expire
until 2014.
Among the constitutional
officers on the county level,
two positions are being hotly
contested, starting in the
primaries.
Two Republicans, two
candidates with no party
affiliation and a Democrat
want to be county property
appraiser when the dust has
cleared in November. One of
them is the current office holder,
Republican Rob Turner, perceived
to be politically damaged by
an admitted personal matter
made public and involving a
former staff member. Turner
is being challenged in the
primary by fellow Republican,
Sen. Ronda Storms. Storms, a
former Hillsborough County
commissioner for District 4, has
been representing essentially
the same constituency as a state
senator and is relinquishing that
seat.
The survivor of their contest in
November will face James DeMio
and RobTownsend, both no party
candidates, as well as Robert
"Bob" Henriquez, a Democrat.
On the other hand, for
Hillsborough's office of elections
supervisor, the primary contest
will be on the Democrat side.
Craig Latimer, current chief
of staff in the elections office,
and Tom Scott, another former
county commissioner and city
councilman from an urban Tampa


district, will fight it out for the
opportunity to take on Rep.
Rich Glorioso, a Republican, in
the November general election.
Glorioso, a member of Florida's
House of Representatives also
from Plant City, along with the
other two candidates, wants
to replace retiring Supervisor
of Elections Dr. Earl Lennard.
Formerly Hillsborough's top
school administrator who retired
from that position, Lennard
subsequently was appointed to fill
the vacancy created unexpectedly
when Phyllis Busansky died not
long after her election.
Yet another top county official
will be challenged, but not until
the general election. Sheriff David
Gee, a Republican, did not draw
opposition from either of the

Construction Liens -- protect yourself and your investment


Sun City Center Fire Department visits
Reddick Elementary
First graders at Reddick Elementary were taught about their commu-
nity helpers, the firemen. They learned about the firetruck equipment
and how it was used. They heard how these men and women keep their
equipment up to date and working well and how they have to continue to
go to school to learn new techniques.
A very important lesson learned was what to do in case of fire. Family
members should have a spot to meet in case of an emergency, call 911,
stay on the phone and don't hang up.

Florida law allows those who
work on your property who pro-
vide labor and materials, and are
not paid-in-full, a right to enforce
their claim for payment against
your property. This claim is known
as a construction lien. Even if you
paid your contractor in full, subcon-
tractors and material suppliers who
were not paid may come after your
property for payment by first filing
a lien.
Many Florida homeowners have
ended up paying twice -- once to
the contractor, and again to the sub-
contractors who weren't paid for
labor and/or materials to avoid a
construction lien being placed on
their home. The Florida Depart-
ment of Business and Professional
Regulation and the Florida Bar of-


fer the following tips when hiring a

File and post a "Notice of Com-

on your home when making partial
or final payments to the contractor.
A "Release of Lien" is a written
statement that removes the property
from the threat of a lien.
Obtain an affidavit that specifies
all unpaid parties who performed
labor or services, or provided any
materials to your property before
making final payment to the con-
tractor.
Make sure that the contractor
provides final releases from these
parties before you make the final
payment.
A construction lien on your prop-
erty is valid for one year. If the
business filing the lien fails to file
a lawsuit to enforce the lien during
that year, the lien will expire. Con-
sumers have a right to file a "Notice
to Contest a Lien" during that same
one year period. Once a notice is
filed to contest the lien, the lienor
has 60 days to file a lawsuit to en-
force the lien. Failure to timely file
the lawsuit renders the lien invalid.
The construction lien law is
complex and cannot be covered
completely in this article. Hills-
borough County recommends that
whenever a consumer faces a spe-
cific problem with a construction
lien on their property, they consult
with an attorney.

Reddick Elementary hosted Spring Fest
Reddick Elementary held their 4th annual Spring Fest on May 19. Each
grade offered one or two activities such as: shooting water tubes to knock
down cans, finger painting, tossing bean bags into hula hoops or tossing
coins into cups for points and prizes.
Some children also enjoyed having their hair sprayed a different color.
Others jumped and slid on the new Bouncy House. Parents were able
to look for new 'slightly used' clothing to fill their closets for the next
season as well as pick up lunch.
A fun day was had by all as they met their friends for a fun day at
school.

essential to knowing if what you

2. They fail to set themselves

have to find the characteristics

simply that your product is green

Hillsborough County
Florida
Recently Hillsborough County
launched a completely re-de-
signed, user-friendly and interac-
tive version of its main website:
www.hillsboroughcounty.org. This
new site has a high powered search
engine and rollover menus to help
residents find what they are look-
ing for in three clicks or less.
Beyond the new navigation and
overall design, the new web fea-
tures many online services. Web


users can pay bills online; sub-
scribe to news, emergency alerts
or calendar updates; and even use
their smartphone to submit con-
cerns or issues in their community.
The site has a mobile version too.
More than 100 staff members
from all departments have worked
on this new website for about nine
months with the leading govern-
ment web solution developer,
CivicPlus, to make this vision a
reality. The County demoed the
re-designed site in four different
communities in April to get public
feedback. Overall, the new site re-
ceived a 91 percent approval rat-
ing at that time. Since then, staff-
ers have incorporated many of the
residents' suggestions, and the site


is ready to go live. In the coming
months, more convenient features
will be added.
CivicPlus has designed more
than 1,000 local government web-
sites serving 36 million citizens
throughout North America. A re-
cipient of the Center for Digital
Government's Best Fit Integra-
tor Award for delivering digital
solutions to public IT projects,
CivicPlus invests more than $1.7
million each year to research and
develop new customizable, inte-
grated eGovernment applications.
CivicPlus transforms municipal
websites into powerful two-way
communication platforms that let
citizens talk to and participate in
local government.

for Hillsborough's highest
law enforcement job. Write-
in candidates do not appear
by name on ballots but their
names can be written in blank
spaces provided on ballots by
those voters supporting their
candidacies, according to Travis
Abercrombie, elections office
spokesman.
Two other high profile county
constitutional officers will
not appear on either primary
or general election ballots
because they had attracted no
opponents when the qualifying
period ended. Clerk of the
Circuit Court Pat Frank and Tax
Collector Doug Belden both
have been automatically re-


elected for successive terms.
Similarly, Hillsborough's
State's Attorney, Mark Ober,
has no opposition, will not
be listed on the ballot and
effectively has been re-elected.
Over at the county school
board, the current term of the
district board member who
represents South County, Stacy
White, is not expiring and
White, therefore, is not a listed
candidate.
However, a number of CDD
(Community Development
District) supervisor positions
will appear on local ballots.
There are multiple candidates
seeking those seats in
numerous community-oriented
subdivisions, including
in the South County such

An area visible from Interstate 75 between Ruskin and Apollo Beach is being cleared

late 1980s and early 1990s that
mark areas permitted densities
and use under land management
codes. These were done before
any of the Community Plans were
made.
Planning for the current phase
of the wastewater treatment plant
expansion began Jan. 8, 2007 and
the design was done Aug. 6, 2008,
Murrin said.
Lenore Horton, the head project
manager for HDR Consulting and
Design firm was in charge of the
expansion design.
Construction, which started
April 2, is supposed to last for
850 days at a total cost of just
over $65 million, which is a
Capital Improvement Project


that was approved by County
Commissioners and is paid for
with Capital Improvement funds.
"There is another expansion
already in the queue that will
make this a 16-gallon a day
plant," Murrin continued. That
project is slated to begin by
October 2014 but workers say it
will probably be delayed.
"The expansion is being done
because we're regulated to meet
the demands and the projections
are that we will need a plant
of this size to accommodate
growth," Murrin said.
The wastewater treatment plant
does not produce drinking or
cooking water. This is not water
that will show up in our faucets.


Water that is flushed from
residents' toilets is pumped
through a gravity-sewer system
through a network of screenings
and then into a main headworkk"
(large tubs) for longer term
screening, where solids are
settled and the water is treated
biologically.
I asked if that meant with
bacteria.
The answer is yes.
Using bacteria is a way of
treating the water with fewer
chemicals, Murrin said.
Eventually, the water is fit for use to
irrigate lawns and for many industrial
uses saving billions of gallons of
potable water from uses other than
drinking, bathing and cooking.

Customers
cautioned about
telephone scam
Progress Energy Florida and Tam-
pa Electric have joined together to
warn customers of a recent tele-
phone-based scam that has surfaced
in the Tampa Bay area.
In the past several weeks, each
utility has received several com-
plaints from small businesses, such
as medical clinics, law firms and nail
or hair salons, that someone imper-
sonating a utility representative has
called their office. In some cases,
the scammer has targeted residential
customers or Asian-owned busi-
nesses. The caller, sometimes a man
and sometimes a woman, claims
the customer's account will be dis-
connected shortly because of an
unsigned check or unpaid balance,
and he or she then requests a credit
card number to avoid the disconnec-
tion. In at least two cases, customers
supplied credit card numbers, which
were later used illegally.
Neither Progress Energy Florida
nor Tampa Electric will ever call
to ask for credit card or debit card
numbers. If you are uncertain
about an individual's association
with your utility, please contact the
company for verification:
Progress Energy 1-800-700-8744
Tampa Electric 1-888-223-0800
If you suspect you have become
a victim of this scam, the utili-
ties recommend you immediately
call your credit card company to
cancel the card and call local law
enforcement to file a report.
All Progress Energy and Tampa
Electric employees and contrac-
tors doing utility work are required
to carry photo identification cards.
If someone claiming to be a utility
representative visits your home or
business, request to see their badge
or call the company to verify their
identity.

intake room through the final adoption process. Ward is shown provid-
ing half the Chamber group with an introduction to several of the dogs in
temporary residence at the shelter while With is taking the other half of
the group on a tour of the separate cat facility
During the tour, participants were given the chance to interact with
individual animals and many were greeted with affectionate welcomes.
The Chamber offers members periodic opportunities to tour local non-

Advocate reveals ways to be a
better father in trying times
It used to sting me when I was
working hard at building my busi-
ness and I'd hear my kids talk-
ing about me. One would ask the
other to see if I had time to play
with them, and the other would tell
him not to bother because he knew
I'd be too busy. It was like a knife
in my heart. With the economy as
tight as it is, I know that I'm not
the only father with the same is-
sue. These days, many fathers are
either unemployed and working
hard to find work or they are work-
ing two jobs or more just to make
ends meet. Either they don't have
much time for family, or they just
aren't in the mood for family be-
cause they are despondent or feel-
ing helpless as a provider.
But, it doesn't have to be that
way. Here are some tips for dads
in a tough economy:
1. Share Time Don't "spend
time" with your kids because that
term makes it sound like you are
giving away time that you could
be using for other things. Share
time with them because sharing
indicates that you both get some-
thing out of that time. It's impor-
tant for your kids to know that you
aren't paying attention to them out
of obligation but rather because
you need to be with them as much
as they need to be with you.
2. Make a Schedule Stability
and security are important to kids,
so set up a time every week that
is just for them, and do your best
to make that time on your calendar
immovable.
Give them something they
can look forward to on a regular
schedule, and it will show them
how important they are to you and
help you build a trusting relation-
ship with them.

3. A Little Time is Better Than
None If you're working two jobs
or work out of town and commute
home on the weekends, they will
understand if you don't have a lot
of time to spend. Even if you can
only block out a couple of hours
every week, it can be enough. As
long as you keep to the schedule
and don't let them down, that time
will be as valuable as if you spent
the entire weekend with them.
4. Don't Plan Big Parents who
work a lot sometimes feel guilty
about neglecting their kids, and
they cater to that guilt by mak-
ing big plans with their kids on a
regular basis. They feel that doing
something lavish and expensive
will somehow be seen as a payback
to their kids for not seeing them
often. The pitfall is that the bigger
the plan, the bigger the expecta-
tion. The truth is that kids don't
care. You don't have to spend a
lot of money or make big plans all
the time. It could be as simple as
going to the park to fly kites and
eating a brown bag lunch together,
and most kids would be happy with
that. Life is a choice and the person
you choose to be is in your control.
No matter the hand you may have
been dealt, there are no excuses.
I grew up as an orphan and I act-
ed out a lot because I lacked the
guidance of a family until I was
finally adopted. And even when I
found stability with my adoptive
parents, the Watsons, it took some
time for me to settle down. Having
shoes on my feet, clothes on my
back, and food on the table were
all good things, but it wasn't those
things that soothed me as a child.
It was the time, love, and attention
I received from the Watsons that
put me back on course and that's
what every child needs. While it
may seem to some that working
hard to provide for their families
is their primary responsibility as a
father, that's just not so. Children
are adaptable and can do without
material things more easily than
they can do without the love and
attention of their parents. If my
experience meant anything to me,
it showed me that it takes more to
be a dad than to just bring home
the bacon. It's not enough to just
do for your children. You have to
be with them, too.
Tom Watson is a survivor of
child abuse, upheaval and 13 fos-
ter homes, so he learned how to
overcome adversity at an early
age. Later in life, Tom was faced
with heartbreaking tragedies,
which threatened to destroy him.
He drew from previous life les-
sons to persevere and show that
new beginnings are possible at
any age or stage of life no mat-
ter what obstacles get in the way.
These principles and their appli-
cations are chronicled in his new
book "Man Shoes: The Journey to
Becoming a Better Man, Husband
& Father" www.manshoes.net.

Scholarship Sunday enjoyed at United Community Church
The United Community Church observed the Mission of the Month by celebrating Scholarship Sunday. It is
a special day as all the students and their families attend the service and reception. The congregation meets
and visits with the students and their families and they share the news of their school year and plans for the fall
semester. At present, the church has sponsored a student graduating from Theological Seminary with a Master
of Divinity Degree. There are two continuing students and four new high school graduates in the program.

Church.
Duo heads to Camp Cedarkirk
Mikayla and Alyvia Wiles made sure they were registered early. Al-
though July and August might seem a long way off for registration at
Cedarkirk, they're not. Cedarkirk's summer programs fill quickly, and
they didn't want to miss out on games, skits, songs, and time to be them-
selves with good friends new and old. Scholarships are available to
those who would otherwise be unable to attend. The office at St. Andrew
Presbyterian Church 1239 West Del Webb Boulevard in Sun City Center
has brochures and registration forms, or check out the camp's website at
www.cedarkirk.org. You do not have to be a Presbyterian or a church
member to attend.

Come sing along with us!
Every Sunday through September 2, St. Andrew Presbyterian Church
members enjoy a hymn sing starting promptly at 9:15 a.m. before the
church's traditional service. They would love for members of the com-
munity to join them. What a joyous sound is heard within the sanctuary.
You don't need to be able to read music; the words will be projected on
the front walls, but for those who wish to enjoy adding harmony, hym-
nals are close at hand in front of every congregational chair. They hope
to see you at 1239 West Del Webb Boulevard in Sun City Center.

fied birth certificate at age 15. He
went to Korea with the 2nd Infan-
try Division, 38th Regiment, B

Decorate a cookie family for Dad's day


(Family Features)What better
way to spoil dad on Father's Day
than with a dessert made just for
him? A sweet treat is a great way
to say "thank you" to the most
important man in your life. And,
since it's his day, choose one that
reflects what he loves most of all
- his family.
The celebration experts at Wilton
have created a fun and memorable
recipe just for the occasion Dad's
Perfect Family Cookies. They're
sure to put a smile on Dad's face.
Start with a basic buttery sugar
cookie dough; roll and cut with
boy, girl, dog and cat cutters.
When the cookies are baked and
cooled, it's time to paint the family
portrait.
Kids will love decorating cutouts
in each family member's likeness
- remember to decorate Dad using
his favorite colors. Use Color How
Icing special icing that makes it
easy to outline and color almost
any design- to "dress" the cookies.
Or for a convenient, ready-to-use
option, try Cookie Icing simply
heat in the microwave and squeeze


onto cookies. Add personal
touches with sparkling sugars,
sprinkles, and other candies for
outfits, buttons and jewelry.
Use these amazing cookies as
fun place cards, or serve as dessert
after Dad's celebratory meal. Pour
him a cold glass of milk and let
him relax and enjoy his special
treat.

Sweet treat support for troops


Harry & David kicks off the 4th
Annual "Support Our Troops with
Moose NMiin ,l Bars" program
which allows families, friends and
supporters of the U.S. military to
purchase the popular Harry & Da-
vid Moose N hint li treat and send
them to war zones.
The leading gourmet gift retailer
has once again teamed up with Sol-
diers' Angels, a non-profit agency
that ships care packages to U.S.
soldiers in combat. Since fall 2010,
nearly 260,000 Moose iii li
Bars have been shipped to soldiers
in military bases abroad.
"The volunteers of Soldiers'
Angels work tirelessly to demon-
strate active care and concern for
veterans, the wounded, deployed
service members and their fami-
lies," said Craig Johnson, CEO of
Harry & David. "We're thrilled to
be able to partner with Soldiers'


Angels on this initiative, providing
comfort and a small dose of home
to the soldiers fighting for our free-
dom. We are so grateful for their
efforts."
Harry & David retail stores na-
tionwide will offer customers the
opportunity to purchase Moose
N ltikil Bars and gift them to
soldiers with a personalized greet-
ing message. Each bar and note is
packaged with a plastic spoon and
sent to military bases in war zones
abroad. At many bases, the 100-
degree heat melts the signature
chocolate, caramel corn and nuts
confection into a lusciously gooey
treat that makes it easy for our sol-
diers to enjoy the sweet taste of
home.
Moose N iiltni Bars retail for
$2.95 each. For Harry & David lo-
cations nationwide and more infor-
mation, visit harryanddavid.com.
