Thanks to warm winter
weather, the strawberries
arrived early, resulting
in a bounty for those
who visited the new
Fern Hill Family Farm
in Riverview. The family
offered a free quart of
strawberries to visitors.
The new hydroponic
farm is scheduled to
officially open next
month.

of the Hoffman family,

all perfection from the thousands of stacked
pots on the hydroponic farm. Rather than


allowing the beautiful berries to go to waste,
the family offered a quart of pick-your-own strawberries at
no charge for those who came to visit this past weekend.
At the three and a half acre hydroponic farm, perhaps the best thing
next to the large, sweet strawberries is the fact that they are easy for
their customers to pick. Becky Hoffman handed out bags and small
scissors and the stacked hydroponic plants meant that no bending
over, no kneeling was required to harvest them. On the farm, nothing
is wasted. At the bottom of the strawberry stacks are planters with
vegetables growing thanks to the small excess water than dribbles down
from each stack.
Although fresh strawberries will be around until May, all good things
must come to at least a temporary end. Hoffman sees a rationale for
that.
"In all truth, God made these plants special," he said. "If we had
strawberries all year around, we might not like strawberries. We'll have

Career Center grads make good choice for employers


* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
RUSKIN The students at the
South County Career Center in
Ruskin have no homework and
no heavy backpacks to carry back
and forth each day.
That's because they're trained
to do their school work during
school hours, so they can hold
down jobs when they're not in
school.
Some students are there because
they've had medical problems
that caused them to be absent and
fall behind in their studies in high
school. Others are there because
they had to work, most in jobs
like farming or field work or fast
food restaurants, and couldn't
keep up their class work.
They aren't "behaviorally
challenged" students. They've
been challenged by life and aren't
candidates for being able to
graduate in a regular high school
setting, said Melissa Brown, who
teaches intensive reading and
language arts.
'The students here are grateful


to be here," Brown said. "We give
them a path to success."
"We are one of four drop-
out prevention centers in
Hillsborough County," said
Program Advisor Vickie Thomas.
Two are in Tampa and the other in
the Plant City area.
Most students are recommended
to the center by local high schools
when they are 16 years of age
and one year behind on their class
work.
Along with regular high school
academics, they register for one of
five job training classes, and upon
completion, can either go forward
with their education usually
to a two-year program at
Hillsborough Community College
and then even to a four-year
program.
One state university Johnson
& Wales in Miami accepts
students into its four-year
program directly from state career
centers, but they have to really
have excellent grades and other
criteria, said Thomas.
The job training classes consist


of automotive, construction, and I like that we learn new things


culinary arts, emergency medical
responder or nursing assistant
training. Army ROTC is also
available.
"I'm in the construction program


in the classroom and then get to go
into the lab and practice them with
actual materials and equipment,"
said Juan Rodriguez.

FWC kicks off

2013 Python

Challenges
Nearly 800 people are regis-

SOUTH COUNTY For
the first time in more than 15
years, changes are coming to
trash collection in Hillsborough
County. Although a reduction
in the current twice weekly
trash pickup had been discussed
recently, during last week's
Board of County Commissioners
meeting the commissioners voted
to retain the current schedule
of twice weekly curbside trash
pickup, along with once a week
recycling pickup and yard waste
pickup. The biggest change for
county residents is expected to be
in the form of a reduction in the
annual trash pickup fee, or, at a
minimum, no increase in current
fees, along with new automated
trash pickup.
According to Hillsborough
County Public Utilities Director
John Lyons, the new, automated
service is expected to begin
on October 1. Automated
trash pickup has been widely
implemented across the nation
in cities both large and small. As
part of the service, new garbage
cans, designed to work with the
arms of the new garbage trucks,
will be required. According to
Lyons, the county expects to
begin distributing the new cans
at the beginning of September.
The new bins are expected to
be provided at no cost to county
residents.
Trash bins designed for
automated pickup are often sized
as 35, 65 or 95 gallons. When
asked if residents will be limited
to one bin, Lyons responded
that the county is expecting one
will be sufficient for the vast
majority of people, but the county


will work with those who have
concerns. With the automated
system, residential trash must be
contained entirely within the bins.
"The way we're setting it up,
if a second can is needed we'll
try to provide that," Lyons said.
"But we would like to try making
things work with one can."
Automated trash pickup will
also mean the end of sanitation
employees hanging off the backs
of trucks in traffic to manually
dump trash cans into the trucks.
When asked about possible job


losses involved in the change,
Lyons responded, "We'll work
with the contractors to identify
job losses. We'll try to ultimately
know what is going to happen and
how best to accommodate that."
For many cities, automated trash
pickup has been advantageous
in terms of cost savings, safety
(for sanitation workers), and
community cleanliness. Most
such trash cans include lids that
are designed to withstand wind
and other problems that can allow
errant trash to be dispersed along


neighborhood roads.
The Public Utilities Department
offers a 25 percent senior
citizen's discount for solid
waste disposal assessment to
residential customers who qualify.
For information visit www.
hillsboroughcounty.org/index.
aspx?nid=1269.
"It is an exciting time," Lyons
said. "There is a lot of change,
but we'll be out ahead of it. We'll
make sure we'll do the best job
that we can to communicate
changes before they take place."

Positive Talk: A message of hope


Writing a column is sometimes
like doing a late night radio show.
You wonder if there is anybody
out there. But every once in
a while, something
happens that brightens
my day and encourages
me to keep the ink
flowing. A message I
received by e-mail was
just such a happening.
That message said: By Willia
"Dear Mr Hodges:


im


I am writing from a
counseling center on an e-mail
system they tell me cannot be
traced so you will not be able to
answer me, but I just wanted you
to know how your columns have
affected my life and the life of my
children. I don't write so good so
a friend is helping me. My name is
different than the one I am using
and I am changing the name of my
children, but here is my story. For
years I have lived with a husband
who treated me and the children
worse than he treated his hunting
dogs. He rarely beat them but he
hit me all the time. I figured since
I never could please him that it
was my fault. We never had any
money because he drank it up and


said the kids and I were to blame
because we bugged him. Well, I
read in your column about taking
charge of my life and it was my
-- problem if I let others
pick on me. You said
that if people could not
do it alone, they should
^, \j ask for help so I did. I
asked my pastor for help
and he got me some. At
Hodges the beginning of last
year I was 75 pounds
overweight, black and
blue from being punched around,
and was thinking about suicide.
My children cried half the night
from my husband screaming at me
and calling me names. I had no
money and knew that if I left my
husband, as bad as he is, I would
probably starve on the streets. At
least that is what he told me, but
you told me different.
You were right. In the past year
my daughter Mary and my boy BJ
are both doing better in school
and I am losing weight. We left
him. With the help of some real
nice people, I have a job and lost
50 pounds. It is not easy being a
single parent but it is easier then
being beaten up all the time and

listening to my children cry. I am
learning that I am not the bad
person that my husband said I
was and I am not stupid either. I
may not know much yet but I can
learn and I will. My pastor and I
said a prayer for you today and
hope other people will be helped
if you print my letter. I know it is
not too good so fix it if you want
to. God Bless you. Susan"
Susan, or whatever your real
name is, if just one person out
there reads what you have to say
and it gives them courage to take
charge of his or her life, you will
have made a real contribution.
You say you don't know much.
Well, I think you know quite a
lot and, with your new "can do"
attitude, I think this next year will
be even better than last.
I believe that God made all
of us to be unique, special and
great. When anyone tries to tear
us down, we must remember that
and claim the worth that is our
birthright. You do not have to put
up with either mental or physical
abuse. There are a number of
social agencies that offer a helping
hand and they are as close as your
telephone.


I am glad for Susan, but I am
sad that it took so many years for
her to finally take action. Don't
let that be your story. Whatever
your problem-drugs, alcohol,
abuse or just low self-esteem-
take action now. See Susan's
letter as a message of hope and a
path to a brighter future. You are
unique, special and great. Begin
acting that way.

Pancake Day is a tradition
that dates back several
centuries to when the
English prepared for fasting
during Lent. Strict rules
prohibited the eating of all
dairy products during Lent,
so pancakes were made
to use up the supply of
eggs, milk, butter and other
dairy products... hence the
name Pancake Tuesday,
or Shrove Tuesday. IHOP's
National Pancake Day will
take place a week before
Shrove Tuesday on Tuesday,
February 5.

Network Hospitals and other charities.

KW Realtor Kimberly Perez earns
prestigious CDPE designation
Kimberly Perez of Keller Wil- from foreclosure and even bank-


liams Realty in Apollo Beach
has earned the prestigious Certi-
fied Distressed Property Expert
(CDPE) designation, having com-
pleted extensive training in fore-
closure avoidance and short sales.
This is invaluable expertise to
offer at a time when the area is rav-
aged by "distressed" homes in the
foreclosure process.
Short sales allow the cash-
strapped seller to repay the mort-
gage at the price that the home
sells for, even though it is lower
than what is owed on the property.
With plummeting property val-
ues, this can save many people


ruptcy. More and more lenders
are willing to consider short sales
because they are much less costly
than foreclosures.
The Distressed Property Institute
(DPI) opened in January 2008 in
Boca Raton. It provides training
on-site and online. The CDPE is
the premier designation for Real-
tors helping homeowners in dis-
tress and handling short sales.
"Our goal is to educate as many
people as possible so we can help
as many homeowners as possible,"
states Alex Charfen, founder of
DPI.

World
The majestic Bald Eagle
Juvenile bald eagles are a mix-
ture of brown and white. They
reach full maturity in four to five
years.
The fe-
male bald
eagle is 35
to 37 inches,
slightly larg-
er than the
male. Their
wingspan ranges from 72 to 90
inches and they weigh from ten to
14 pounds.
Bald eagles can fly to an altitude
of 10,000 feet. During level flight,
they can achieve speeds of about
30 to 35 mph. The beak, talons,
and feathers are made of keratin,
just like your finger nails.
Wild bald eagles may live as
long as 30 years. An eagle's lifting
power is about four pounds. Their
diet is mainly fish, but they will
take advantage of carrion. Once
paired, bald eagles remain togeth-
er until one dies.
The bald eagle became the Na-
tional emblem in 1782 when the
great seal of the United States was
adopted.

Reminder: historic DC-3to appear at
Tampa Executive Airport Jan.19 & 20


After a successful 2012 Air
Show season throughout the USA,
culminating in appearances at the
Wings Over Homestead Air Show
and the Stuart Road to Victory
Air Show, the oldest flying DC-3
in the world, the American Air-
lines Flagship Detroit, has once
again taken up winter residence in
Florida and is scheduled to appear
at the Tampa Executive Airport
(KVDF) on Saturday and Sunday,
Jan. 19 & 20.
Local area membership rides
will be available at the event.
Those who purchase a tax-deduct-
ible annual membership for $150
in the Flagship Detroit Foundation
will be able to fly on those dates
and will also be invited to ride on


the aircraft during repositioning
flights for a period of a year.
The airplane flew for American
Airlines from 1937 to 1947. In
time, ownership of the Flagship
Detroit passed to corporate hands
and the airplane became a light
freighter and agricultural sprayer.
It was located in Virginia, and
purchased by the Flagship Detroit
Foundation in August 2004. The
plane has been restored to exactly
how it looked in 1937.
For information on the Jan. 19
& 20 appearances at Tampa Ex-
ecutive Airport, other scheduled
flights, and general membership
information, contact Capt. Jim
Skelly (AA, Ret) at 813-495-0340

I Dear Savvy Senior,
What types of preventive health
screenings does Medicare com-
pletely cover, and which ones re-
quire a coinsurance fee? I'm due
to get some preventive tests done,
but I want to find out how much
r I'll have to pay before I proceed.
Frugal Retiree
Dear Frugal,
Medicare
covers a wide
array of pre-
ventive servic-
es to help you
stay healthy,
By Jim Miller but it's impor-
tant to know
which services
are totally covered, and which
ones will generate some out-of-
pocket costs.
Free Services
Thanks to the Affordable Care
Act, original Medicare now offers
many of their preventive health
services completely free to benefi-
ciaries.
Preventive services include vari-
ous exams, lab tests and screenings
that help find health problems in
their earliest stages when they're
easier to treat. They also include
a number of vaccinations and pro-
grams for health monitoring, as
well as counseling and education
to help you take care of your own
health.
Here's a quick rundown of the
different Medicare preventive ser-
vices that won't cost you a cent,
along with the eligibility require-
ments you'll need to meet to get
them.


* Wellness visits: All Medi-
care beneficiaries are eligible for
two types of preventive wellness
visits one when you're new to
Medicare and one each year after
that. But don't confuse these with
full physical examinations. These
are prevention-focused visits that
provide only an overview of your
health and medical risk factors and
serve as a baseline for future care.
* Colorectal cancer screening:
The fecal occult blood test, flexi-
ble sigmoidoscopy or colonoscopy
is available to all beneficiaries age
50 or older.
* Mammograms: All women
with Medicare ages 40 and older
can get a free breast cancer screen-
ing mammogram every year.
* Pap tests and pelvic exams:
These cervical and vaginal cancer
screenings are available every two
years, or once a year for those at
high risk.
* Prostate cancer screenings:
Annual PSA blood tests are avail-
able to all male beneficiaries age
50 and older.
* Cardiovascular screenings:
Free blood test to check choles-
terol, lipid and triglyceride levels
are offered every five years to all
Medicare recipients.
* Diabetes: Screening available
twice a year for those at risk.
* Bone mass measurements:
This osteoporosis test is available
every two years to those at risk, or
more often if medically necessary.
* Abdominal aortic aneurysm
screening: To check for bulging
blood vessels, this test is available
to men ages 65 to 75 who have
ever smoked.


* Vaccinations: An annual flu
shot, a vaccination against pneu-
monia and the hepatitis B vaccine
are all free to all beneficiaries.
In addition, Medicare also offers
free smoking cessation counseling;
medical nutrition therapy to help
beneficiaries with diabetes or kid-
ney disease; depression screenings;
alcohol screening and counseling;
obesity screening and counseling;
annual cardiovascular risk reduc-
tion visits; sexually transmitted in-
fection screening and counseling;
and HIV screenings.
Cost-Sharing Services
Medicare also offers several oth-
er preventive services that require
some out-of-pocket cost-sharing.
With these tests, you'll have to pay
20 percent of the cost of the ser-
vice (Medicare picks up the other
80 percent), after you've met your
$147 Part B yearly deductible. The
services that fall under this catego-
ry include digital rectal exams for
prostate cancer, glaucoma tests,
and diabetes self-management
training services.
For detailed information on all
Medicare preventive services see
medicare.gov/share-the-health,
or call Medicare at 800-633-4227
and ask them to mail you a free
copy of "Your Guide to Medicare's
Preventive Service" (publication
10110).
Medicare Advantage
If you have a Medicare Advan-
tage plan, you'll be happy to know
that all Advantage plans are also
now required to cover the same
free preventive services as original
Medicare.

Hearing the

* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
RUSKIN Robert Graves had
what it took to be successful all
his life but he didn't suspect it
until he was in the 11th grade.
For a long time his teachers
thought he was a slow learner.
Not knowing what it was to hear
properly, Graves went through
much of his schooling trying to
read lips and memorize from
books.
"How do you know what you're
missing until you finally have it?"
he asked in an interview Jan. 9.
Now Graves is not only at the
top of the classes he teaches, he's
winning awards for it.
A third generation Ruskin
resident, Robert, now 56, received
the national Rookie of the Year
Award and was inducted into the
$300,000 Sales Club at the Dale
Carnegie annual convention held
in Hawaii in December.
He also took the local Dale
Carnegie award for Business
Consultant of the Year and has
been informed that he is about to
receive Hillsborough Community
College's Alumni of the Year
Award as well.
Graves has two certifications
to teach Dale Carnegie self-
improvement concepts: as a
Sales Trainer and a Business
Consultant. Employed by Rick
J. Gallegos, the local franchise
owner of the Dale Carnegie
course, Graves gives the classes
both in-house for corporations
and publicly.

General Competition for the pub-
lic and the Python Permit Holders
Competition for people who have
permits from the FWC and other
agencies to regularly harvest these
snakes. Both groups will be col-
lecting data. When dropping off
a harvested Burmese python, par-
ticipants must submit data sheets
providing information such as the
snake's size, GPS location and
habitat where it was found.
Grand prizes of $1,500 for har-
vesting the most Burmese pythons
will be awarded to winners of both
the General Competition and the
Python Permit Holders Competi-
tion, with an additional $1,000
prize for the longest Burmese py-
thon harvested overall. Funding for
the prizes is provided by sponsors
and through registration fees.
People can sign up for the Python
ChallengeT at any time during the
competition, even on the final day.
Go to PythonChallenge.org for the
required online training, official
rules and registration, as well as
information on the public events.
Florida prohibits possession or
sale of Burmese pythons for use as
pets, and federal law bans the im-
portation and interstate sale of this
species. The public can help the
fight to control invasive species
such as Burmese pythons by:
Reporting sightings of exotic
species to IveGotl.org, 888-IVE-
GOT1 (888-483-4861) or by us-
ing the free smart phone app IVE-
GOT1 for iPhone and Android. It's
helpful if you can submit a photo
and location.
Not releasing an exotic pet into
the wild, and reminding others of
the dangers of releasing nonnative
species.

The Dale Carnegie courses
teach self-improvement,
salesmanship, public speaking,
and corporate and interpersonal
skills and more, a full description
of which may be found on its
website on line.
Graves' wife Marcey Walsh,
who also runs her own business,
Institute for Pattern Literacy
where she researches the
relationship between pattern
awareness and effective decision
making, acts as his connection to
people and businesses.
"She makes all my
appointments and does all my
research so when I meet a client,
I know what they're about and
usually what they want from me
as well," he said.
But Graves didn't always
have the confidence and
professionalism he now exudes.
"When I was in elementary
school, I thought I was slow. My
last name starts with a G so when
we sat alphabetically, I was in the
middle. They put me in extra help
classes, like phonics. I realized
the 5th grade was easier for me.
It was the first time I had a male
teacher."
The pitch of the male voice was
easier to understand than the soft-
spoken women who he had had as
teachers in the lower grades.
Still, even though he knew that
class had been easier for him, he
didn't make a solid connection to
a hearing problem.
"It's a hard thing to understand
unless you've been through it, but
nobody told me I couldn't hear
and I really wasn't aware of being


different," he explained.
Then, in 11th Grade, he
transferred to Temple Heights
High School.
'That's where I met Mr. Bailey
and Mr. Panky. They changed my
life."
Things began to take off after
that, although he still wasn't fitted
for proper hearing aides until after
leaving HCC for the University of
South Florida several years later.
By that time, however, he did
know to enroll only in classes
with male teachers, the pitch of
whose voice he could hear better.
"I started sitting up front. In
grade school, they made you sit
alphabetically, but now I had a
choice and I knew it was easier
for me up there," he said.
Despite the fact he gained
his hearing late, Graves earned
a communications degree and
an MBA (Master of Business
Administration).
He worked at CA Inc., which
is now Computers Associates,
after that, and took advantage
of classes given on site by the
company, one of which was Dale
Carnegie.
"I joined Dale Carnegie a
decade ago while working at
CA. I've been in IT (information
technology) sales since '85 and
became number one in standalone
sales, that means I had no help
from outside sales reps. I attribute
all my success at CA to Dale
Carnegie."
'Typically, people who are hard
of hearing don't react well to
other people," he said. The Dale
Carnegie courses gave him the

send people email notices of what
we're picking that week."
It is a family-run operation in its
entirety they are even building
the large barn on the premises.
'"We'll have a full deli market
and a full vegetable market,"
Hoffman said, referring to the
nearly completed barn. 'We call
this an agri-tourist destination."
Yes, that means strawberry
shortcake and strawberry
milkshakes will be available.
A family-friendly operation,
they have plans for landscaping
to build in areas for children
and families to enjoy not only
fresh fruits and vegetables, but
also the outdoors and beautiful
surroundings. They also hope
to attract businesses and other
organizations that would be
interested in using their facilities
for office outings, retreats and
meetings. Located just off 1-75
and Gibsonton Drive, they have an
ideal location for all of their plans.
But the bottom line is the fresh
produce that will come from the
family's hard work. The younger
Hoffmans are fourth generation
strawberry farmers, but this is
the first time they've grown the
berries above ground.
'"We have about three and a half
acres, which with hydroponics

equals about four to five acres,"
Hoffman said. 'There is a big
thing about eating fresh, without
preservatives and chemicals. We
use very, very minimal sprays. We
think it is better than organic."
For the Hoffman family, from
Jerry and Becky down to their
young grandchildren, what
has emerged from this place
is their field of dreams. Their
faith is strong, in God, in their
own abilities, and in their hopes
that people will come to enjoy
the farm and the bounty that
will emerge from their work:
strawberries, blueberries, and
vegetables. All are grown with
love and caring in a place where
dreams come true.
The warm winter also means
fresh strawberries are available
several miles east down the road
at Goodson Farms. The longtime
South County establishment
opened their stand last month, and
is now serving their famous fresh
strawberry shortcake and pressed
Cuban sandwiches. Goodson
Farms is located along County

Growing SCC church reaches beyond community


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
SUN CITY CENTER -
Although located in the heart
of one of Tampa Bay's largest
retirement communities, the United
Methodist Church of Sun City
Center has a long reach beyond the
boundaries of the 55-year-old and
up community. With driving music
pouring out from the loudspeakers,
a large number of children and
young families joined retirees
to enjoy the dedication of a new
building on the growing ministry.
On Sunday, people young and
old danced on stage in the newly
dedicated Life Enrichment Center
building at the church, while others
gathered outside listening to a
live band play some softer, older
than contemporary music. Then
a large blue ribbon was cut, with
church elders, board members and
youngsters taking part and the
building became a newest part of a
growing church.
"God has given us an
unbelievable church -
multigenerational, multicultural
- experiencing one miracle after
another," said Rev. Dr. Warren
Langer, Senior Pastor. "The Life
Enrichment Center, the newest
facility on our campus is not only a
home for our ministries, but a place
of welcome with an open door for
the entire community."
Planning for the building
began five years ago, with
groundbreaking taking place last
April.
"Having been blessed with
steady and rapid growth, we are
very excited to move into our state-
of-the-art, multi-purpose facility:
The Life Enrichment Center," said
Jeff Jordan, Director of Worship
Arts.
The 14,000 square foot facility


will house contemporary and
Hispanic worship programs within
a state-of-the-art assembly space,
including a commercial kitchen
and office complex. The lobby of
the new building even includes a
coffee bar.
In keeping with an Old
Testament tradition, the people
were lead to the new building for
the dedication by children with
sparkly banners.
One of those children, 11-year-


Crdlebrate


old Dustin Lucht said, "We, the
children and youth, will honor God
in this building now and in the
future."
The theme for the day was
"Celebrate with Joy." The church is
planning a community celebration
in the new building on Feb. 10
from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

United Methodist Church of Sun
City Center online at www.sccumc.

You, me and business:

The common cold

takes its toll, too


Today is Monday, and I didn't
make it to the Chamber until
around 3:00. Just in time to close
at 4:00. For a week now, I've been
battling a stubborn cold, and it has
been kicking me to the -
proverbial curb.
Now, please under-
stand this is not the flu
which has made national 5
headlines for the past ,
two weeks. I haven't
had any fever or chills, By Dana
no achy muscles or nau- Executive
sea. This is a plain old SCC Chc
run-of-the-mill garden Commerc
variety cold. Stuffy nose


and a nasty cough. Period.
But this common cold had me
down with a vengeance. So I
cannot imagine how those who get
this viral strain of flu are dealing
with it.
According to all reports, this
year's flu is at near-epidemic
levels in several states around
the country. The CDC is hoping
that the cases are peaking early in
the season and they will taper off
soon. If not, this could be a record
year for deaths.
One aspect of an epidemic most
folks don't think about is the im-
pact it has on business. Health in-
surance especially now with the
enactment of the Affordable Care
Act is expensive for businesses.
But there are other tolls, too. Em-
ployees who are out sick make for
more work for their co-workers.
And how about those employees
who can't afford the time off who
bring the flu with them? They in-
fect even more employees and the
problem cycles downward.
Then there is the cost everything
from aspirin and chicken soup to
chest x-rays and z-packs. The
businesses who profit from the flu
are those who sell tissues, get-well


I
I"



SD
am
ce


cards and flowers.
One of my Chamber member
board members lamented the
other day she had two co-workers
out sick and was having to work
triple duty. The toll of
the extra work was evi-
2 dent in her drawn face
and vacant eyes. She
was running on auto-
: pilot. And this delay
would actually set her
>ittmar, back for a couple more
directorr weeks until she could
ber of find extra time to get
caught up.
The strain on just this
one overworked employee will af-
fect the whole company. Not in
a way that will have a permanent
impact on their bottom line, but on
this month's productivity, which is
part of the overall year's perfor-
mance record.
It isn't just our for-profit busi-
nesses who hurt, either. Our local
volunteer rescue squad members,
Samaritan Services drivers, Meals
on Wheels delivery people, and all
kinds of others who donate their
valuable time will see their troop
numbers damaged by an outbreak
of the flu in this community.
It was no surprise I came down
with it. The Chamber building
is not unlike a daycare center
where people come in from vari-
ous households, all blowing noses,
coughing and sneezing, needing
things faxed and notarized, direc-
tions and information. As they
touch things, sneeze on things and,
well, just breathe, we end up grow-
ing quite a solid batch of germs
from which to choose.
But I now have it beat and am
back at my desk, ready to tackle
the new year. Now if only Dee and
Dosi don't get it, we'll be ok.

Janet Katherine Jones
Diehl
On August 6, 1942, the New York
Times headlined the picture of Janet
Katherine Jones and U.S. Navy officer
Fahy Eugene Diehl, married the day
before at Church of the Ascension, 5th
Ave, NYC. Our nation at war needed
that loving and patriotic image on
display for all to see.
Janet Diehl died Sunday, January 6,
2013. She was born March 17, 1918,
Corning, NY, youngest daughter of
the Ingersoll Rand Chief Engineer J.
William Jones and Hazle Robinson
Jones. A graduate of Connecticut
College for Women, New London, CT,
Jan became an executive secretary at
Ingersoll Rand Corp. There she met
Gene Diehl, of Lowe Brothers Paint
Co., who was to become her beloved
husband of 60 years.
Janet is survived by her daughter
Joan Weller Diehl, of Nedrow, NY;
sons James Gregory Diehl, of
Skaneateles, NY, and Dudley Scott
Diehl, of Chicago, IL. Her namesake
and god-daughter, Janet Katherine
Lane, resides in Switzerland. She was
also 'Mom' to Khosrow (Joe) Kamali,


Area Obituaries


an exchange student from Ahvaz,
Iran. Granny-Jan was very proud fall
five grandchildren and their spouses
and her six great-grandchildren. Jan
would faithfully correspond with family
and friends; keeping all connected.
Siblings J. William Jones, Jr.,
Eleanor Lane and Mary Louise North
predeceased her.
Following WWII, the Diehls settled
in Brighton, NY, and in 1961 moved
to Skaneateles, NY. In 1980, Jan and
Gene retired to Danbury Drive, Sun
City Center, FL, from their lakeside
Skaneateles home. Commander
Diehl became an EMT and 17-year
member of the SCC Ambulance
squad. Janet, hearing-impaired from
birth, volunteered 12 years teaching
lip-reading throughout Hillsborough
County and was on the Florida Board
for the Hearing Impaired. Following
Gene's passing in 2002; she became
a volunteer for C.A.R.E. (animal
shelter), joined SCC Toastmasters,
and became a Samaritan driver.
A 30-year member of St. John the
Divine Episcopal Church, Jan would
visit the South Bay Hospital and Sun
Terrace to deliver Sunday's Bible
readings and flowers to patients who
were fellow Episcopalians.
Janet was an engaging person,
always taking a sincere interest in
others. An example was recently
recounted by her beloved physician, Dr
Donald Benke: Twenty Octobers ago,
he told Jan how he had been working
such long hours that he had no time to
even pick up a pumpkin for his young
children. The very next day, she arrived
at his office door with a pumpkin for him
to take home! Such a loving heart will
only be lost if we forget to follow her
example and express the compassion
we feel for others around us, through
not just words, but loving actions and
deeds.
The family offers grateful thanks
to all who cared for Janet in her
last years. Gifts may be given to:
C.A.R.E. Animal Shelter (1528 27th
St SE, Ruskin, FL 33570), St. John
the Divine Episcopal Church (1015 E
Del Webb Blvd, Sun City Center, FL
33573), Fur Ever Sanctuary,14001 US
301 North, Parrish, FL 34219), or any
charity which honors how you knew
Jan Diehl.
A memorial service was held at St.
John the Divine, Sun City Center, on
January 11, 2013. Later this year, at
Hope Cemetery, Corning, NY, Jan's
ashes will be laid to rest next to her
husband, Gene, and their deceased
infants, Fahy Eugene Diehl, Jr, (1943)
and Alan Thomas Diehl (1944).

Ed, returns to the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center at 6:30
p.m. on Friday, Jan. 18 for a program in the church sanctuary.
This popular artist is known for his collections of moving music, quirky

es, Ed has earned a reputation as one of America's cutting edge religious
communicators, a folk-theologian offering his teaching in story and song
as a guest in churches across the United States. He combines acoustic
guitar, singing and commentary with a storytelling style often compared
to that of Garrison Keillor, the radio humorist from Lake Wobegon.
Concert-goers are encouraged to arrive early for a good seat. A dona-
tion of $5 is requested at the door. For additional information about this
and other concerts and recitals at the United Methodist Church of Sun

Lava
Lava is a super-cute Lab puppy
with an irresistible wiggle. Found
abandoned, Lava has many fans at
C.A.R.E. She has a bright person-
ality and truly loves everyone. She
is a little shy around the other dogs
but we expect that to change as she
experiences more and more posi-
tive interactions. Lava has already
started obedience training and
will sit for treats. This puppy has
all of the best parts of the breed.
Because of her expected size and
activity level, Lava would do best
in a home (versus an apartment)
with someone who will give her
lots of mental and physical stimu-
lation. Forever-home-only need
apply. Don't miss out on a chance
to be on the receiving end of the
love Lava has to offer! As part of
her adoption, Lava will be spayed,
microchipped, and brought current
on her puppy shots.

Plant a tree right this Arbor Day
Florida Arbor Day is just around the comer (Jan. 18). Everyone, grab a
shovel and get ready to plant a tree. But wait....
Before planting a tree make sure you know how to do it correctly,
advises the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). How a tree is
planted, and initially maintained, makes all the difference in the world.
Too many people are content to simply plant a tree, but don't ensure
that the tree has the chance to go on to live for many years.
"Planting a tree is making an investment in the future," says Sharon
Lilly, ISA Educational Director. "You must care for and nurture your
young tree so that it will pay dividends for years to come."
1. Prepare the perfect hole for planting.
Dig the hole two to three times the width of the root ball. Do not dig
deeper than root ball depth. Make the sides of the hole slant gradually
outward.
For bareroot trees, neatly cut away any broken or damaged roots.
Soak the roots for a few hours prior to planting to allow them to absorb
water.
Container-grown trees should have the plastic or metal containers
completely removed. Carefully cut through any circling roots. Remove
the top half of pressed peat/paper containers.
Balled and Burlapped ("B&B") trees should have all of the ropes
cut. Pull the burlap at least one third of the way down. Slit remaining
burlap to encourage root growth. If in a wire basket, cut away the top
of the basket.
2. Plant the tree.
Gently place the tree in the hole. Partially backfill with the soil from
the hole, water to settle the soil, then finish back-filling the hole. Tamp
the soil gently, but do not step on the root ball.
While you may have finished planting, Arbor Day aficionados should
remember these final touches:
Remove tags and labels.
Do not stake unless the tree has a large crown or the planting is situ-
ated on a site where wind or people may push the tree over. Stake for a
maximum of one year.
Prune only the damaged branches.
Soak the soil well, making sure no air pockets form between roots.
Wait until next year to fertilize.
Spread two inches of mulch over the planting area, but do not place
it up against the trunk.
Be sure the root ball has plenty of water throughout the year.
Anyone with questions regarding choosing the right tree or proper
planting and maintenance should contact an ISA Certified Arborist.
For additional information on planting and other tree care topics, or to
find a local ISA Certified Arborist, visit www.treesaregood.org.

Follow 'rule of halves' in


managing for turkeys


Whether you oversee a large tract
of land or own a smaller parcel,
there are many wildlife
management techniques r
you can use to help attract :-
and keep wild turkeys on
your property.
Wild turkeys, like deer, .
are "edge species,"because
of their need for more than Outt,
one type of habitat. Most Wooi
of the time, with large By Tony
tracts of land, this isn't a y
problem because the vast
landscape is diverse enough. But
in the case of small-acreage, one-
habitat properties, it's up to you
as the landowner to create varied,
preferred habitats if you expect
turkeys to use the property.
For optimal turkey habitat, most
experts believe a "rule of halves"
should be applied to the landscape.
What that means is that half of the
area (and if you own a small tract,
then include surrounding properties)
should be in mature forests and
the other half in early-succession
openings, such as fields or clear-cut
and plantation-cut landscapes.
To create even better and more
varied habitats for turkeys, you
should offer differing age classes of
forests and early-succession areas -
and make prescribed burning a big
part of your management plan. This
will enable new growth of succulent,
woody ornamentals, native grasses
and weedy-type flowers.
Hardwood lowlands provide
travel corridors that turkeys and
deer use extensively and feel
comfortable moving through. Most
wild turkeys prefer to roost in trees
over or near water, so it's important
to leave these areas undisturbed and
free from timbering.
Buffer strips of native grasses
and woody ornamentals should be
left unmowed where clear-cut areas
meet pine or hardwood forests.
Hens require this thick understory
cover for nesting.
In Florida, most hens begin
laying their eggs in late March or
early April and the eggs take about
25 days to hatch, so take care not
to burn or mow through August.
After hatching, poults will roost on
the ground for the first 14 days, and
during this period, approximately
70 percent of these young birds
won't survive, primarily because
of predation from raccoons, hawks,
coyotes, foxes and bobcats.
Attempts to control these
predators are usually ineffective
and economically unfeasible, so
your efforts are better spent creating
and maintaining good-quality brood
habitat.
Good brood habitat should hold
food in the form of seeds, insects
and tender, new-growth vegetation
for young poults to feed upon
throughout the summer. It should
consist of 1- to 3-foot-tall grass and
weeds open enough to enable the
young poults to move about, yet
dense enough to provide cover from
the above-mentioned predators.
There is great interest nationally
in the planting of food plots for
wildlife, including for turkeys.
Within extensive closed-canopy
forested areas, food plots and/
or game feeders are essential to
keeping turkeys on your property.
Where an open forest structure is
maintained by adequate timber
thinning and the use of fire, such
supplemental feeding is not as
necessary because there is enough
natural browse vegetation on which
game can feed.


a'
ds
yYo


On very large tracts of land,
sufficient supplemental feeding can
be quite expensive. In
these cases, proper use
2-. of burning and timber-
61 thinning management
are more economical
ways of providing food
for turkeys and other
the wildlife.
Food plots, though,
are a lot more cost-
9oung effective at feeding
game than using
feeders on moderate-sized pieces of
property. In cases of smaller tracts,
perhaps where food plots can't be
utilized because the landscape is
all lowland and you have a closed
canopy, game feeders filled with
corn or soybeans are your only
option for attracting turkeys.
When thinking about good
food plot sites, avoid excessively
wet or dry areas, and don't place
them along heavily used roads to
minimize disturbance and possible
poaching.
Look to create these openings
along an edge where upland pines
meet a hardwood drain. This way,
you'll have an area where three
separate habitats converge. Keep
in mind that it is recommended
that 2 percent to 3 percent of the
land should be in these permanent
openings.
The best food plots are long and
narrow rectangular shapes that
follow the contour of the land.
When possible, create food plots
where the length (longest part) runs
east to west. That way, the planted
crops will receive the most direct
sunlight.
In the fall, cereal grains like wheat,
oats and rye can be planted along
with Austrian winter peas, clover
and brassicas like turnips, rape and
kale. Except for clover, these crops
grow well in most of Florida.
Clover requires a higher soil pH
between 6.5 and 7 and it often
won't grow in the sandy soils that
make up most of our state, unless
you apply enough lime to bring the
pH level up. In the northern-tiered
counties that border Alabama and
Georgia, the soil is richer with red
clay, and several varieties of clover
and other legumes will grow well
there.
All of the above-mentioned cool-
season forages can be planted by
"broadcast" method after Oct. 1. At
least twice as much fertilizer should
be applied. Slightly cover the seed
by pulling a drag over it, and try to
put your crop in the ground when
the soil is holding some moisture
and rain is in the forecast.
In the spring after May 1, you
can plow under your "browned-up"
fall crop and replace it with any
combination of soybeans, cowpeas,
browntop millet, sorghum or
peanuts. If you can afford it, turkeys
are especially fond of chufa. That,
along with the other warm-season
forages, can be broadcasted and
planted just like the cool-weather
crops.
Hopefully, using some or all
of these wildlife-management
practices will help bring in turkeys
and increase your property's
carrying capacity for birds. If you
need assistance, contact the FWC's
Landowner Assistance Program, the
National Wild Turkey Federation,
Natural Resources Conservation
Service or your county agricultural
extension agent. Here's wishing you
luck obtaining your management
goals and objectives.

Navy
Navy Seaman Morgan Van Heu-
vel, a 2011 graduate of Riverview
High School, Riverview, Fla., re-
cently completed U.S. Navy basic
training at Recruit Training Com-
mand, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week program,
Van Heuvel completed a variety of
training which included classroom
study and practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, firefight-
ing, water safety and survival, and
shipboard and aircraft safety. An
emphasis was also placed on physi-
cal fitness.
The capstone event of boot camp
is "Battle Stations." This exercise
gives recruits the skills and confi-
dence they need to succeed in the
fleet. "Battle Stations" is designed
to galvanize the basic warrior attri-
butes of sacrifice, dedication, team-
work and endurance in each recruit
through the practical application of
basic Navy skills and the core val-
ues of Honor, Courage and Com-
mitment. Its distinctly "Navy"
flavor was designed to take into ac-
count what it means to be a Sailor.
Army
Army National Guard Pfc. Joshua
L. Hall has graduated from Basic
Combat Training at Fort Sill, Law-
ton, Okla.
During the nine weeks of training,
Hall studied the Army mission and
received instruction and training
exercises in drill and ceremonies,
Army history, core values and tra-
ditions, military courtesy, military
justice, physical fitness, first aid,
rifle marksmanship, weapons use,
map reading and land navigation,
foot marches, armed and unarmed
combat, and field maneuvers and
tactics.
Hall is the son of Lasheka and
Richard Robinson of Black Forest
Trail, Riverview.
He is a 2012 graduate of Tampa
Bay Technical High School.


Air Force
Air Force Reserve Airman 1st
Class Francesco Torcasio gradu-
ated from basic military training at
Lackland Air Force Base, San An-
tonio, Texas.
The airman completed an in-
tensive, eight-week program that
included training in military disci-
pline and studies, Air Force core
values, physical fitness, and basic
warfare principles and skills.
Airmen who complete basic
training earn four credits toward an
associate in applied science degree
through the Community College of
the Air Force.
Torcasio is the grandson of Mary
Torcasio of Pleasant Boulevard,
Riverview, Fla.
He is a 2005 graduate of Niagara
Falls High School, N.Y.

Marines
Marine Corps Pfc. Zachary T.
Hannah, a 2011 graduate of Riv-
erview High School, Riverview,
Fa., earned the title of United
States Marine after graduating from
recruit training at Marine Corps
Recruit Depot, Parris Island, S. C.
For 13 weeks, Hannah stayed
committed during some of the
world's most demanding entry-
level military training in order to
be transformed from civilian to
Marine instilled with pride, disci-
pline and the core values of honor,
courage and commitment. Training
subjects included close-order drill,
marksmanship with an M-16A4
rifle, physical fitness, martial arts,
swimming, military history, cus-
toms and courtesies.
One week prior to graduation,
Hannah endured The Crucible, a
54-hour final test of recruits' minds
and bodies. Upon completion, re-
cruits are presented the Marine
Corps emblem and called Marines
for the first time.


Army
Army Pfc. Arlina Travieso has
graduated from basic combat train-
ing at Fort Jackson, Columbia,
S.C.
During the nine weeks of train-
ing, the soldier studied the Army
mission, history, tradition and core
values, physical fitness, and re-
ceived instruction and practice in
basic combat skills, military weap-
ons, chemical warfare and bayo-
net training, drill and ceremony,
marching, rifle marksmanship,
armed and unarmed combat, map
reading, field tactics, military cour-
tesy, military justice system, basic
first aid, foot marches, and field
training exercises.
Travieso is the sister of Louis Tra-
vieso and sister-in-law of Jenifer
Travieso, both of Shady Preserve
Drive, Riverview, Fa., and grand-
daughter of Aida Santini of Rose-
wood Avenue, New Haven, Conn.
She is a 2011 graduate of Riv-
erview High School, Fa.

PENNY FLETCHER PHOTOS
Cody Randall Covert shows Principal Sandra Bailey the ingredients
he is using for crab-stuffed tilapia in the Culinary Class at South
County Career Center in Ruskin. Below, Teen parents earn free child
care in either the Baby Room or the Toddler Room and may continue
their high school studies.


Career Center


0 Continued from page 1
These skilled programs go
side-by-side along with one-
hour-forty-minute classes in
mathematics and science; and
reading and social studies.
"Besides being able to get the
help they need to succeed with
their studies, they're taking
job training they can use upon
completion, start the education
needed for a specific career, or
take away skills they can use later
in life," Thomas said.
Because students get a
Certificate in their line of
specialty work when they finish
at the center, local employers
can look to the career center's
graduates as a source for workers,
she added.
Currently, Thomas and Brown
work with the Tampa Bay
Workforce Alliance to check on
job openings and on what careers
are expected to provide jobs in the
future job market.
'"We are proud to be giving
these students a chance to
advance," said Principal Sandra
Bailey.
Teens who have become
pregnant as early as middle
school are also given a chance to
complete their education at the
center.
'They have to earn their free
child care," Bailey said. "But then
they can put their babies in the
Baby Room and their toddlers
in the Toddler Room while they
attend classes."
Girls may enroll in the teen
parenting classes at any age,
said Brown. "Girls as young
as middle schoolers become
pregnant and enroll to continue
their education." After the baby's
delivery, child care is offered if
they choose to continue at the
school, but the new mother is
offered the opportunity to go back
to her original high school instead
if she wishes.
Most stay at the center where
they can be close to their babies.
Easter Seals provides the grant
money to pay for the staff for the
child care.
"It's given me the opportunity
to achieve my goals and be
motivated about school because
it's like lifting a great weight
off my shoulders," said Naomi
Longoria.


Other donor organizations help
as well.
The Community Foundation
of Greater Tampa Bay Inc.,
provides many things for the
school including money to pay
for students' state board exams,
professional organization dues,
uniforms, books, tools and cap
and gowns for graduation.
The Community Foundation
of Greater Sun City Center
helps as well, Thomas added,
providing money for scholarships,
classroom materials and other
things to help students complete
their courses.
S ly life has changed since
coming here. My eyes have been
opened to the real world," said
Nicole Bynam who is taking the
nursing program.
Students in other programs echo
the same sense of gratitude.
Cody Covert wants to become
a Master Chef and says he is
learning a lot from the school's
culinary arts instructor, Paul
Shaffer.
"He has helped me learn to be
a leader not a follower," he said.
Covert's goals include owning his
own restaurant.
The career center has a school-
based "business" called the
Bobcat Bistro that caters in-house
or at outside venues.
It has provided lunches for
local chambers of commerce,
Red Hat chapters and many other
organizations.
Not only does the Bistro work
with the community, students in
the automotive division also work
on resident's cars.
"We only charge a small
shop fee and for the parts,"
said automotive instructor Brad
Huffman. "People can call the
school and ask for the automotive
extension to book an appointment.
They need to tell us what they
want done, we need to do all
kinds of things but I want to
make sure we have the equipment
before we promise to take on any
job."
With students already working
both in and out of school, the
career center makes a good
source for local employers to
seek employees to fill vacancies,
Bailey said.
The telephone number is (813)
223-3335.

SCC expo offers a walk on the spiritual side

mitch@observernews.net
SUN CITY CENTER On
Saturday, in a community
known for golf carts and golf
courses, pickle ball and a Fun
Fest, hundreds of people turned
out at Community Hall for a
walk on the spiritual side. The
Sun City Center Metaphysical
Society held their fourth annual
Metaphysical Expo, a quiet riot of
colors, crystals, peace and light.
The event included mediums and
healers, astrology and tarot cards
and above all, a sense of peace
and a dose of spiritual harmony
- both with the world and within
the mind.
There were 39 tables of vendors
offering much of the above and
more. Many involved are quick


to point out that metaphysics is
not contrary to Christianity or
Judaism it merely enhances it.
Metaphysics is all about helping
people to get in touch with things
that lie outside of the realm of
our five senses. It is, for some,
a different, perhaps longer, leap
of faith and, according to the
Metaphysical Society, "a way
to interpret and understand the
experiences of life from all levels
of consciousness: physical,
emotional, mental and spiritual."
Barely two steps into the
exhibition room, a young woman
approached offering a hard cover
book. I was in full gear for work
with press credentials displayed
and three cameras hanging from
my neck and shoulders. I assumed
she wanted publicity. I was wrong.

Energy sound healer Robert Austin demonstrates the properties of
a copper bowl used in healing.


'This book is for you," she said.
'"We aren't seeking publicity, we
are simply offering this. It's yours.
What you do with it is up to you."
Tara Rae, who calls herself 'The
Butt-Kicking Angel," was there
displaying handmade jewelry
and her book, "Universe on the
Move," with a tagline of "Be all
you can be without joining the
Army! "Artist Shirley Patterson
was displaying beautiful and
unique crystals along with her
own art, and Robert Austin,
who calls himself an I1 nil i -
Sound Healer," was there with
bowls filled with foam peanuts
in which visitors would place


their feet and Tibetan copper
bowls in which they would
place their heads. There were
tables for spiritual magazines
and clothing, including t-shirts
in the spectrum of colors for
each day of the week. Also, there
were Cliff and Lisa representing
Apollo Paranormal Investigations,
South Hillsborough's own Ghost
Hunters. The Chakra Center table,
with spiritual books and gifts,
anchored one end of the expo.
Doni Doty of the Metaphysical
Society and Chakra Center was
the organizer of the expo, which
also included speakers and
seminars at the top of each hour.


Artist Shirley Patterson displays
her crystals and artwork during
the expo.
The society has several upcoming
events including lectures on
music therapy, how to receive
spiritual guidance, how to be
really happy and a seminar on
the correlation between solar
activity and creativity and spiritual
advancement.

For more information,
contact Doty via email at
metaphysicalsociety@gmail.com
or by calling 813-633-9400. The
society meets every Wednesday
at 10 a.m. in the Heritage Room

Commissioners approve new bicycle lanes in South County


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
SOUTH COUNTY The
Hillsborough County Board of
County Commissioners voted
last week to make an investment
in bicycle lanes in South
Hillsborough. During the Jan. 9
BOCC meeting, commissioners
voted unanimously to move $3.1
million collected from developers'
transportation impact fees into a
fund for paved-shoulder bicycle
lanes, primarily along 19th
Avenue in Ruskin, building upon
the plan of an east-west bicycle
corridor running from U.S. 301
to E.G. Simmons Park, with the
current allocation allowing for the
portion from near 1-75 to the park.
The commission also approved
adding a bicycle lane along Big
Bend Road in Apollo Beach from
U.S. 41 to the TECO Manatee
Viewing Center.
Ruskin resident Mariella Smith
was quick to praise the action of
the board, and Commissioners
Sandra Murman and Mark Sharpe
in particular.
"We need to tell our County
Commissioners that safe bicycle
lanes and trails are important to
MANY of us, if we want them
to actually build the network
of safe cycling infrastructure

that is in our plans. We need to
tell them we appreciate it when


they do agree
to build bike
lanes & trails,"
Ruskin resident
Mariella Smith
posted to her
blog. "Today
we can make
that point by
thanking our
Commissioners
for their recent
action that will
add bike lanes
to 19th Ave. in
Ruskin, from
30th St. (near
1-75), west to
E.G. Simmons

Via Facebook, Commissioner
Sharpe responded to Smith
saying, "This is just the
beginning. Please keep advocating
for additional bike lanes."
The motion for the transfer
of funds to build the lanes was
made by Commissioner Sandra
Murman and was seconded by
Commissioner Sharpe.

Fish Tales: Go fishing while the weather is great


We have had days of great
weather as well as great fishing.
I found that anglers were fishing
daily, not just on the week-ends.
At Williams Park in Gibsonton
I found as many boat
trailers parked during
the week as were on
weekends.
Everyone is making
catches. Those fishing
from piers were
having the best fishing ByJonie
experience. Each cast
proved to be a great
catch. No one was catching the
same species of fish.
As I talked to those fishing from
bridges, I got the same response.
Weather was great as well as the
fishing.
Those fishing from canoes, and
kayaks, were celebrating one catch


*A


after another. They had planned to
spend the day fishing, but found
that they had caught all they could
use in a couple of hours, and were
on their way back to shore.
I found that not all
boats on the bay were
fishing. Many were
just taking a slow ride
with the breeze flowing
on their faces and
enjoying the weather,
Aaschek the great outdoors and
the many birds, like the
fish, were enjoying our
summer weather in January.
Even mullet have decided to
stay in our canals and rivers. I'm
often asked, "How do you cook
mullet?" First, you must learn how
to catch them. If you are a pro, you
could catch them with a line and
a pole. This is only done by those


who have had years of practice. To
catch mullet, you need a cast net,
learn how to read the water when
a school of mullet passes by and
throw a complete circle over them.
You then pull up the net, without
losing the mullet. To cook them,
the Southern way:
1 cup yellow cornmeal
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine all dry ingredients.
Then add 1 beaten egg
1 cup milk and 1/4 cup melted
butter to this mixture with a 1/2
pound or so, mullet. Mix together,
bake in a square 8x8" pan at 4250
for 30 minutes.
Many dip mullet in an egg/
cornmeal mixture then fry in deep
fat.
It has been a long time since I

this week with the waters full of all
species, an angler caught one. This
fish is a dweller of the reefs, found
in the Gulf of Mexico and our bay
waters. It's a very lazy fish with
good food value, delicious fileted
and skinned.
Trout have been a great catch
this week in the grassy flats.

UF/IFAS announces

$1.5 million Tropicana gift for citrus faculty post focused on innovation


GAINESVILLE, Fla. Tropi-
cana Products Inc., a division of
PepsiCo Inc., has pledged $1.5
million to endow a professorship
specializing in innovative citrus
research to strengthen the Florida
citrus industry, the nation's largest,
University of Florida and Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
officials and company representa-
fives announced today.
The endowment, to be known as
"The Tropicana Professorship for


Florida Citrus Innovation," will
support teaching, research and
outreach efforts dedicated to the
future of the state's citrus indus-
try.
The research is expected to tar-
get, among other things, advanced
production systems, efficient water
use, protection of natural diversity
and sustainable citrus production.
Jack Payne, UF senior vice pres-
ident for agriculture and natural
resources, said the gift is much


needed. Payne said it will fund a
professor who will target research
efforts aimed at helping the indus-
try become more sustainable.
"Every agricultural industry must
work to become more sustainable
and our state's citrus growers are
helping lead the way," Payne said.
"The research goal here will be
citrus trees that flourish with little
impact on the environment. It's
a wonderful goal and this sort of
corporate partnership is critical to

helping us reach it."
A more sustainable citrus indus-
try, he said, would mean trees that
thrive with less fertilizer and irri-
gation than are currently required,
and being able to plant more trees
per acre.
Oranges have been grown in what
is now the state of Florida since
the 1560s, almost 150 years before
they were reported anywhere else
in what would later become the
continental United States, accord-
ing to historical records.
"As the largest buyer of Florida
oranges, ensuring that Florida cit-
rus remains vital, competitive and
sustainable for generations to come
is paramount," said Neil Campbell,
president of Tropicana Beverages,
North America. "The University
of Florida is world renowned for
its agricultural research and sci-
ence initiatives and we can think
of no better partner."
Tropicana Products Inc., a divi-
sion of PepsiCo Inc., is a leading
producer and marketer of branded
fruit juices. PepsiCo is a global
food and beverage company with
net revenues of more than $65 bil-
lion.
Mike Haycock, vice president of
operations for Tropicana, said that
as a longtime member of the Flori-
da citrus community, the company
understands how important this is
to the state because, "Florida is
where it all started for Tropicana
back in 1947.
"Through this work and invest-


ment, together, we will help drive
innovation and create solutions for
a sustainable future for the Florida
citrus industry, which continues to
face serious challenges," Haycock
said.
The Tropicana gift follows an-
other $1 million in USDA grant
funding to UF/IFAS for citrus.
Those funds will be used to sup-
port research aimed at prevent-
ing the insect that transmits citrus
greening from being able to spread
the disease.
Since 2006, the citrus greening,
known to scientists as Huanglong-
bing, has cost Florida's economy
an estimated $4.54 billion in lost
revenues and 8,257 jobs by reduc-
ing orange juice production, UF/
IFAS studies have found.
Michael W. Sparks, executive
vice president and the CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual, the larg-
est cooperative associated dedi-
cated to helping the state's citrus
growers, called Tropicana's gift a
much-needed one.
"Florida citrus growers are cur-
rently facing the biggest disease
challenge we've ever faced in
HLB and the only way we are go-
ing to beat it is in the laboratory,"
he said. "This endowment is a
huge step forward in strengthening
the resources we have in the fight
against HLB and Tropicana and
UF-IFAS should be commended
for their commitment to a sustain-
able future for our $9 billion in-
dustry."

A cover girl visits Riverview Weight Watchers
On Saturday, Weight Watchers Riverview celebrated the 50th.....
anniversary of the organization, entitled One Amazing Day with
a visit from one amazing woman. Audrey Northup is 76 years
old and has been involved with Weight Watchers since 1972.
She lost 125 pounds on the program and has kept it off since
1976, the year she was also a cover girl on Weight Watchers
Magazine. Northup achieved lifetime status with the organization
and has never missed a weigh-in, nor has she ever had to pay. In
Riverview, she spoke to a crowd of several dozen people during
the anniversary event that included motivation talks, prizes and
other activities. Weight Watchers in Riverview is located at 10629
Big Bend Road just off the corner of U.S. 301. Northrup, left, is
pictured with Janet Wright from the Riverview Weight Watchers.
