$2.2 mil expansion planned for Ruskin Recreation Center

Mark Thornton, director of Hills-
borough County Parks, Recre-
ation and Conservation explains
the proposed expansion of the
center April 4 at a public meet-
ing to gather community input.


ough County Parks, Recreation
and Conservation Department
unveiled a preliminary proposed
plan to spend $2.2 mil. on a new
freestanding gymnasium and
other facilities at that park.
The park, which is located at
901 Sixth St., S.E., one block
southwest of the railroad cross-
ing on State Road 674 (College
Avenue), currently houses a
large multi-purpose room which
doubles as a gymnasium and a
senior's center. Plans to build a
large third building there were re-
vealed, with initial site drawings,
by Parks and Recreation Director
Mark Thornton and Craig Cle-
ments, who is a senior architect
with Hillsborough County's
Facilities Management Division.
"There won't be any disrup-
tion of services here while the
construction is going on," said
Thornton. "The new building
will be freestanding, although it
will be tucked close to the exist-
ing buildings to give the park a
campus-like feel, and also allow
maximum use of outside space."
The plan is still so new that nei-
ther site specifications nor exact
floor-space are known, Thornton
said.


"This is because whatever
money is left over from doing the
initial site work will be spent on
the building. We will use it all,"
he said.
The money to build this facil-
ity and several others around
the county was gained from the
consolidation of the county's 43
smaller recreation centers into 12
expanded neighborhood centers
that began four years ago, Thorn-
ton said. This money was kept
in the parks and rec budget and
approved for use by the County
Commission.
"In 2012, County Commission-
ers approved five new projects,
including this one, Palm River,
Town n' Country, Progress Vil-
lage and Gardenville."
Plans for expansion at the
Gardenville Recreation Center in
Gibsonton will be released soon
and covered in a separate news
story.
Ruskin's construction budget is
$1.8 mil. and anything left over
from that will be added to what
is spent on the building, or on
facilities available in the building,
Thornton said.
The park is on approximately
four acres of land, which means

every square foot of space must
be considered, he continued.
Rick Ward, a 15-year-volunteer
at the Ruskin park questioned
how the softball field and play-
ground would be affected.
"We know we need at least 300
feet from home plate to the wall
for adult softball to continue,"
Thornton said. "So we have con-
sidered that in the drawings."

Part one in a series

* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
We left the comfort of our
well-lit hotel in Florida
City and drove more than
20 miles into Everglades National
Park in pitch darkness, then
turned and drove another mile
down a road that dead-ended into
the wilderness. We shut off the
car and lights and were suddenly
transported back in time, 500 or
perhaps even 15,000, years. The
pre-dawn darkness settled in upon
Michelle and me, and into our
primal minds and imagination.
There was no traffic, there were
no other tourists ambling about.
Only the occasional unidentified
creature moving about
accompanied us heard, but


ment of the new building was
still in flux but a new positioning,
finally decided upon the morning
of April 5, was emailed to accom-
pany this story.
"The plans are still so pre-
liminary we can't give any exact
specifications or target dates,"
Thornton said. But the spending
limits are clearly defined by the
County Commissioners' vote.

unseen. Although a metropolitan
area of more than five million
people lay just to the east, we
were completely and utterly alone
in the Everglades in the inky,
moonless darkness. We could feel
but could not adequately express
the enormity of this place; we
could feel the peace and, perhaps,
a hint of fear of the unseen that
surrounded us. Standing in the
darkness, alone in our thoughts,
more than anything else, we
could feel the magic that exists in
the Florida Everglades.
For most people, the Everglades
are something to drive through
on the way to Miami. From 1-75,
also known as Alligator Alley,
the vista is mostly featureless, an
empty land of saw grass marsh
pocked with distant stands of
cypress, palm and other trees.
From the freeway, there is a
forbidding character to it. How
many people would be brave
enough, even in broad daylight,
to wade out into the river of
grass even a half mile from the
manmade comfort of the concrete
road that bisects the Everglades?
Surely, snakes, alligators and

Q: Why should I schedule an eye exam? I'm seeing pretty well.


,T: Eye Exams Save Sight. Some sight-threatening eye diseases have
no symptoms, and can only be detected during a dilated eye exam. Early
treatment saves vision.
Eye Exams Detect Other Health Problems Too. Many
general health problems (high blood pressure, for example) are often first
detected during a routine comprehensive eye exam.
Good Vision Increases Safety. Poor vision can have an


adverse effect on many life issues, notably increased auto accidents or falls.
(Falls are among the leading causes of death of people 65+.)
* Vision Affects a Child's Success in Life. 80% of
learning is through the visual system. Decreased vision can significantly
affect a child's grades, athletic performance and even social interaction.
* Changing Eyecare Technology. Conditions once thought
untreatable are now correctable with state-of-the-art technology.

The Girl Scout Gold Award proves what a good imagination can do!


* BY PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews. net
At 16, Kaitlyn Arruda
built a serenity garden for
women coming out of abusive
relationships. After that, she
learned to sew so she could make
100 carry-bags for people at a
local assisted living facility who
must use walkers to get around.
Now 17, she's doing a project
that will aid veterans dealing with
trauma.
From her early days in scouting
as a Daisy, Brownie, and then
Girl Scout, Kaitlyn has earned
her badges and awards through
helping her community.
As a member of Girl Scout
Troop 508 which is partly
Hillsborough County and partly
Manatee, she is working on the
top award Girl Scouting can give
her: The Gold Award, by planning
and building a fire pit at My
Warrior's Place in Ruskin.
The Apollo Beach resident is in
her junior year at East Bay High
School and has been active there
as well.
"She was on the Steering
Committee in both her freshman
and sophomore years and has
been active with Relay for Life
for three years. This year she was
a Team Captian," said her mother,
Cyndee Arruda. Kaitlyn's main
interest, however, has always


been in scouting and the things
she learns there.
According to Jennifer Mederios,
the public relations and media
manager for the Girl Scout
Council of West Central Florida
based in Tampa, strict and lengthy
criteria is used to determine the
awards she has earned and is
working to earn now.
"There are certain amounts
of hours they must put into
each project, and it must show
advocacy and leadership," she
said. "Typically the projects
are connected both locally and
globally."
Mederios cited as an example
Jamila Blake of Tampa who
held fundraisers and started a
local club at her high school to
call attention to crimes against
children in Uganda. Later this was
turned into the Global Outreach
Club at her high school to help
what are referred to as "the
invisible children" living under
terrible conditions in that country
and eventually a speaker from that
country came to talk about it with
them first-hand.
"The projects these girls do
really teach them to improve both
their communities and the world,"
Mederios added.
"The Girl Scout Gold Award
is the highest award in Girl
Scouting," she continued. "A


Girl Scout must be in at least
ninth grade, a registered Girl
Scout Senior or Ambassador, and
successfully complete certain
requirements before she begins
working on her Gold Award
project. Girl Scouts spend a
minimum of 80 hours planning
and implementing their Gold
Award projects. These projects are
girl-led, with guidance provided
by a specialized project advisor,
and emphasize leadership,
advocacy, and sustainability.
The Girl Scout Gold Award is a
dramatic example of how Girl
Scouts' all-girl setting offers girls
exceptional experiences so they
can make a lasting difference in
the local community, region, or
beyond both now and in the
future. Notably, a Girl Scout
who has earned her Gold Award
immediately rises one rank in
any of the U.S. military branches
and is eligible for a number of
scholarships."
Kaitlyn's Bronze Award in
2008 was for making a serenity
garden for women using Ruskin's
Mary and Martha House shelter
for abused and homeless women
and their children. She also did
other things to raise awareness of
domestic abuse.
Then came the project that
earned her the Silver Award
in 2010. That took her seven


months, her mother said.
"She enlisted the help of the
Sun City Center Sew & Sews
who taught her how to sew. After
that she made 100 carry-bags and
gave them out at an assisted living
facility," said Cyndee Arruda.
In 2012, a mutual friend
introduced Kaitlyn to Kelly
Kowall, president and founder of
the newly formed My Warrior's


Place in Ruskin that was featured
in the Observer News and The
Current May 17, 2012.
My Warrior's Place is a retreat
center that offers support,
training, a relaxed setting and in
some cases temporary housing,
to military service veterans and
families who have lost a loved
one who was in the service of

better through projects that earned her the Bronze and Silver Girl
Scout awards. Now she is working on a community project to earn

Positive Talk: Creativity-Gateway


One of the most enjoyable
seminars that I present around
the world is one that focuses on
creativity. I
think I enjoy
it because the
participants
are like a
flower garden /
to me. They
bloom at ByWilliam Hodges
different
times during
the session. For some of them,
the opening of their minds to
new ideas and thoughts is almost
immediate and, for others, it is like
watching time-lapse photography
of a blossom opening. The creative
process is a wondrous thing, and I
think we all are born creative and
our environment either nourishes
or suppresses our natural ability.
We all operate from what the
psychologists call paradigms. The
American Heritage dictionary
defines a paradigm as, "An
example that serves as pattern or
model." I believe it encompasses
that and more. It is the world you
live in whether or not it is the
real world. Our paradigms set the
limits for our actions and limit us
to certain patterns of actions. An
extreme case of this was found on
the Malaysian peninsula among
a group of aborigines. Their
paradigm was a world bounded by
the traditional hunting areas of the
tribe. Each child from birth was
taught that beyond certain trees,
the world did not exist and there
was oblivion. Anyone passing
those trees would cease to exist.


The tribe believed it so fervently
that if someone passed beyond the
line, they became invisible.
Don't laugh at these primitive
people. There are many here in
our so-called civilized world who
cannot see things plainly in front
of them because their paradigms
will not allow them to see anything
different or new. Even forward
thinkers can fall into the trap of
being limited by paradigms that
are based on current thinking.
Thomas Watson, the founder of
IBM, said in 1943, "I think there
is a world market for maybe five
computers." He changed his
opinion and his paradigm to see the
potential of large computers and
the rest is history. However, IBM
made the same mistake of limiting
its thinking when desktop personal
computers made their debut, and
this limited paradigm almostruined
the company. What opportunities
are you missing because you are
relying on old knowledge, ideas
and perceptions?
To creatively take charge of your
life, you must be willing to keep
an open mind to all possibilities
and challenge the status quo as
often as possible. Just because
it always has been done in a
certain way does not mean we
should continue to do it in that
way. Just think if Edison would
have said, "Oil lamps were good
enough for my father and they are
good enough for me." You would
possibly be reading this by lantern
light. Bill Gates was told that if he
quit college, he would probably
end up working for someone else


to a New Future
all his life. He challenged that
thought and founded Microsoft and
became one of the world's richest
men. Speaking of challenging
thoughts, a young friend of mine
is now developing a wrench that
can be used as a hammer. He
was doing some plumbing and
was banging on the pipe with the
wrench when a friend chided him
for using the wrong tool. He then
got the idea to make one end of
the wrench into a hammer. Will
it work? I don't know, but I think
I would like to have one. I have
some pipes I would enjoy giving a
good beating.
Over the next month, look at
everything you do as if you had
never done it before. How could
you improve your results by
doing things differently? Should
someone else be doing it, freeing
you for other tasks? What tools are
you using and could those tools be
improved? You will be amazed at
what creativity can bring to your
life. It can be the gateway to a new
future.

You, me and business:

Don't be a floating feather


Last year at the fall conference
of the Florida Association of
Chamber Professionals, I was
truly impressed by the handful
of Chambers who are accredited


by the U.S. Chamber
of Commerce. I wanted
to know what was
involved in becoming
accredited so I went
online and downloaded
the requirements. Let
me tell you, they are
quite extensive! These
Chambers have every
reason to be proud
of what they have
achieved.


Our goal this year is to work on
the seven areas to qualify. We may
not get it all done this year, but in
working to improve these areas,
we are developing a framework
for success. In other words, this
is a business model with specific
strategies and measurable goals.
By working diligently on the
requirements, we will improve
our communications, finances,
educational programs and human
resources, along with developing
a better governmental affairs
program and appropriate, updated
bylaws.
Remember the movie Forrest
Gump? In the opening scene, there
is a feather floating carelessly
and freely wherever the wind
takes it. Unfortunately, many
small businesses are like that
feather. They go where the wind
takes them, usually as a result of
feedback from customers or the
skill sets of their employees.
Allbusinessesneedaframework.
You can grow without one, but it
is a chaotic and stressful process.
A successful business model
should get you excited and be
a model that others fit into. By
others, I'm referring to products,
potential customers, existing
customers, employees and

April is Donate I
Isaac Ryan-Hallam just turned
five years old. He is preparing for
kindergarten, loves fire trucks and
pirates, and playing with his twin
brother Elijah. Isaac and Elijah
were born prematurely, and be-
cause Isaac's intestines were not
fully developed, complications led
to a portion of his intestines be-
ing removed and further setbacks
destroyed his liver. Isaac is alive
today thanks to a liver transplant
- a generous gift from an organ
donor.
This April, during the federally
sanctioned Donate Life Month,
LifeLink of Florida honors the
spirit of those individuals who
make transplants possible or-
gan, tissue and eye donors. They
celebrate the lives of those, like
Issac, who received their second
chance and finally, they call
attention to the men, women and
children who still wait.
Today, LifeLink encourages the
Tampa Bay community to take
action to save lives. Register on
Florida's organ and tissue donor
registry to become an organ and
tissue donor by visiting www.Do-
nateLifeFlorida.org.
One organ donor can potentially
save the lives of eight people, and
improve the lives of dozens more
through tissue donation. Dona-
tion, with the primary example
of living kidney donation, occurs
after death and deciding to reg-
ister as a donor does not impact
your medical care should you be-
come ill or injured in an accident.


suppliers. I can tell you the staff
and Board of Directors are truly
excited about working toward
this accreditation. And once we
succeed, we will be one of the


very few in the state
of Florida to have
achieved it.
Having this plan
also makes working
here easier. Now we
all know what needs
to be done, who is
responsible for doing
it, and when we should
have it completed.
So, as you go about


building your business plan, ask
yourself this question: Do you
run your business a) with a to-do
list and no plan; b) with a plan
that contains a to-do list; or c) in
your head? Most business owners
have it in their heads. They may
be a fantastic plumber, electrician
or store owner, but that doesn't
mean they know how to develop
a business plan. It's scary to even
think about it, so it's easier to be
the floating feather.
Fortunately, there are folks out
there who assist businesses with
their plans, and often it's for free
or for a nominal fee. The Small
Business Development Center,
SCORE (Service Corp of Retired
Executives) and even the County
all have people who can help
you.
They' 11 work hand in hand with
you to develop a strategic plan with
objectives that are manageable,
and strategies to achieve those
objectives. They'll help develop a
reasonable timeline of when each
strategy should be implemented
and identify the employee who is
accountable for making sure they
are.
There is no reason for you to be
the feather! Let us help you grow
your business with the proper
framework for success.

Life Month
People of all ages can choose to
donate and help others in need, and
donation is supported by all major
religions as a personal choice and
act of generosity. Donation places
no financial burden on the donor's
family.
Contact LifeLink of Florida for
more information. LifeLink of
Florida is a nonprofit community
service organization dedicated to
the recovery of organs and tissues
for transplantation. To register as
an organ donor, visit www.Do-
nateLifeFlorida.org.

Fifth Third Bank partners with
Metropolitan Ministries to fight hunger
For the fourth consecutive year, Fifth Third Bank (Tampa Bay) is part-
nering with Metropolitan Ministries in its efforts to fight hunger in the
Bay Area. The "Fifth Third Feeding Families" food drive aimed at
collecting enough nonperishable items to feed 5,300 families in Tampa
Bay started April 1 through Friday, May 3 ("Fifth Third Day").
"We believe that a consistent investment in the community is key to
making a real impact," said Brian Lamb, president and CEO of Fifth
Third Bank (Tampa Bay). "We're proud to once again be working with
a great organization like Metropolitan Ministries to help families and
children in need throughout Tampa Bay."
Metropolitan Ministries is one of the leading nonprofits in the area
that provides support to hungry children and families in the four-county
Tampa Bay area. The collected items will be distributed to people in
need in Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Polk counties.
"The need for food in our community continues to grow, and the do-
nated items will directly help people right here in our own backyards,"
said Tim Marks, president of Metropolitan Ministries. "We are humbled
that Fifth Third Bank has once again focused on contributing to our mis-
sion to fight hunger and provide hope."
Food collection bins are set up at all 47 Fifth Third banking centers
throughout Hillsborough, Pinellas, Polk and Pasco counties. Bank em-
ployees and customers as well as local businesses and community
residents are encouraged to donate nonperishable food items, such as
canned fruits and meats, peanut butter, boxed cereal and beans.
To donate, stop by a local Fifth Third banking center or visit 53.com to
find a location near you.

other terrors are merely lying in
wait for that hapless tourist.
While dangers certainly exist in
the Everglades, they are no more
so than in any other of the world's
remaining wild places. Unlike
some of our own human brethren,
alligators and snakes wouldn't
kill you out of malice, they'd
prefer to avoid you as much as we
prefer to avoid them, or at least
theirjaws. The danger that may
be found for the careless is easily
offset by the peace and tranquility
that is found in a unique place in
the world. Yet those traveling on
1-75 miss the magic that lies just
to the south. The first step to see
that beauty and uniqueness is to
exit off the freeway and take the
two-lane U.S. Highway 41, also
known as the Tamiami Trail, that
snakes through the very heart of
the wilderness.
The Miami Metropolitan Area is
110 miles long but averages only
20 miles wide. In some parts, it is
only five miles wide. The massive
city ends abruptly on the west
side and the Everglades begin,
with equal abruptness. In some
places, it is possible to drive a
single block to leave what we've
come to know as civilization
for a world known best to our
far distant ancestors. The rapid
change is stunning as suddenly
you are thrust into an entirely
different world.
Vultures fly in large packs,
tempting fate as the occasional
car hurtles towards them while
they stand hunched over an
unidentifiable carcass on the two-
lane road. Just feet off the road,
large alligators bask in the sun,
oblivious, or perhaps uncaring,
to the occasional human gawker.
Birds, beautiful, unique and
stately, are omnipresent. Along
the highway are signs announcing
the presence of an occasional
"Indian Village," mysterious
and somehow attractive to some


ancient part of the human brain,
places where thatched huts may
be seen behind closed metal and
wooden gates. For how crowded
and chaotic the coastal areas of
Florida often seem, it is amazing
at just how much isolation is
possible in the Everglades. This is
a place to disappear, for a day or
possibly even a lifetime.
Driving along the Tamiami
Trail is an intimate experience,
with the Everglades growing
right up to the road's edge. The
Skunk Ape Research Center and
America's smallest operating
post office also line the narrow,
sun-baked road. Before 1-75
opened, it was once a tourist road,
with alligator wrestlers and land
sharks hoping to separate winter
visitors from their money. There
is still a handful of places offering
airboat rides and other tourist
attractions, but what was once
perhaps a carnival atmosphere
is no more; it has given way as
the thru traffic migrated to the
expansive concrete of the freeway
to the north. Steadily, quietly,
the Everglades have seemingly
effortlessly reclaimed anything
and everything that may have
been lost in those earlier days.
That said there is still steady
traffic on the Tamiami Trail,
heavy with tourists, many
stopping at the Ochopee Post
Office, the smallest operating
post office in America. It has
been in service for more than
six decades and it is a working
office, primarily serving the
Seminole and Miccosukee Indian
population, but with much of
the mail volume generated by
tourists seeking a now-famous
postmark from the smallest office
in the nation. The postmistress
takes time to talk to anyone who
cares to strike up a conversation,
but she also values the quiet
and solitude offered by her
post. Currently there is road

Approximately halfway between
Naples and Miami, photographer
Clyde Butcher, widely regarded
as Florida's Ansel Adams, has a
studio tucked into the wilderness
just off the Tamiami Trail. A visit
to his studio provides a calm
journey of respite through his
photography, stunning enough
to soften the most jaded heart.
Florida, as captured through
Butcher's eyes and lens, is indeed
paradise. A stop at the studio also
offers an excellent chance to see
an alligator or two (but remember,
attempting to feed an alligator
is illegal and is also, quite
obviously, hazardous).
The Everglades, which
begin with the waters from the
Kissimmee River near Orlando
is a shadow of its former self,
but what remains is the world's
most unique wilderness; there
is nothing else like it on the
planet. While efforts are being
made to restore the Everglades,
it is impossible to know what a
decade or a century may bring.
The thirst for water for growing
cities and for farming is insatiable
and regardless of intentions
acted upon or merely spoken,
the future of this wild place will
likely remain uncertain. While
it is powerful enough to act as
a retaining wall to the nation's
eighth largest metropolitan area,
it is incredibly fragile despite its
enormity. It is a land filled with
the unintended consequences of
past and current actions.
Waiting for the sunrise, our
intention was to experience
this place as few do and to
capture the dawn of a new day
in photographs. We arrived early
enough to let the feeling of the
place soak in, the eeriness of the
complete darkness in the wilds of
the Everglades soon gave way to
a feeling of tranquility, perhaps a
hint of something that was merely
taken for granted by our forebears
of many centuries past. Florida
recently celebrated the 500-year-
anniversary of its "discovery"
with events in St. Augustine.

THE SAVVY SENIOR

How to Choose a Medigap
Supplemental Policy


Dear Savvy Senior,
I'll be 65 in a few months -
Medicare enrollment age and am
;ii,,it,. about ,'e.i/.' a Medicare
supplemental policy to help cover
;ii,,.. outside of Medicare. Can
you give me some advice on choos-
ing a plan?

Sam

Dear Sam,
If you're
planning to
By Jim Miller choose origi-
_nal Medicare
for your health
coverage, getting a supplemental
policy too (also known as Medi-
gap insurance) is a good idea if
you can afford it, because it will
help pay for things that aren't cov-
ered by Medicare like copayments,
coinsurance and deductibles. Here
are some tips and tools to help you
choose an appropriate plan for
you.
Medigap Plans
Medigap policies, which are sold
by private health insurers, come in
10 standardized benefit packages
labeled with the letters A, B, C, D,
F, G, K, L, M and N.
Plan F is the most popular, fol-
lowed by plan C, because they
provide the most comprehensive
coverage. Plans M and N, the two
newest options, are cost-sharing
plans that have cheaper premiums
which make them appealing to
healthier retirees who don't use as
much health care.
If, however, you live in Massa-
chusetts, Minnesota or Wisconsin
you have different standardized
Medigap plans that you can buy.
For more information on the dif-
ferent types of plans, call Medicare
at 800-633-4227 and ask them to
mail you a free copy of the Choos-
ing a Medigap Policy guide (pub-
lication 02110), or see medicare.
gov/pubs/pdf/02110.pdf.
How to Choose
To choose a policy, consider
your health status and family
medical history. The differences
among plans can be small and
rather confusing so you'll need to
do some homework to pick a plan
that works best for you.
To help you choose, use the Me-
digap online search tool at medi-
care.gov, and click on "Supple-
ments & Other Insurance" at the
top of the page, then on "How to
Compare Medigap Policies." This
tool will breakdown what each
plan covers along with premium


cost ranges, and lists the compa-
nies that offer them in your area.
Since all Medigap policies with
the same letter must cover the ex-
act same benefits, you should shop
for the cheapest policy.
You'll get the best price if you
sign up within six months after en-
rolling in Medicare Part B. During
this open-enrollment period, an
insurer cannot refuse to sell you a
policy or charge you more because
of your health.
You also need to be aware of the
three pricing methods which will
affect your costs. Medigap policies
are usually sold as either "attained-
age" policies which are premiums
that start low but increase as you
get older. "Issue-age" policies that
increase prices due to inflation,
not age. These policies may start
out a little more expensive than
attained-age policies but gener-
ally have few rate increases over
time. And "community-rate" poli-
cies, where everyone in an area is
charged the same premium regard-
less of age. Issue-age and com-
munity-rated policies will usually
save you money in the long-run.
No Drug Coverage
You also need to know that
Medigap policies do not cover
prescription drugs, so if you don't
have drug coverage, you need
to consider buying a separate
Medicare Part D drug plan, too.
You can compare plans and cost
at medicare.gov/find-a-plan. Also
note that Medigap plans do not
cover vision or dental care, hearing
aids or long-term care, either.
Alternative Option
Instead of getting original Medi-
care, plus a Medigap policy and
a separate Part D drug plan, you
could sign up for a Medicare Ad-
vantage plan that provides all-in-
one coverage. These plans, which
are sold by insurance companies,
are generally available through
HMOs and PPOs. To find and
compare Advantage plans visit
medicare.gov/find-a-plan.
If you need help, contact your
State Health Insurance Assistance
Program (SHIP), which provides
free Medicare counseling. See
shiptalk.org, or call 800-677-1116
to locate a counselor in your area.

their country.
Kelly founded the retreat
after the death of her son in
2009. Spec. Corey Kowall, 20,
was a medic in
Afghanistan with
Alpha Company,
Second Battalion,
508th Parachute
Infantry Regiment
in the Fourth
Brigade Combat
Team of the 82nd
Airborne Division
based at Fort
Bragg, North
Carolina.
His interest in KAITLYN ARF
past wars earned
him the nickname "Corregidor"
from his grandfather after the
small rocky island in Manila Bay
in the Philippines.
Once Kaitlyn met Kelly and
saw the work she was doing, she
immediately gravitated to "Eyes
on the Skies, Project Corregidor,"
named for Corey. It is one of
many things going on at My
Warrior's Place, and deals directly
with helping veterans and their
families process their grief.
The focus of Kaityln's project,
as explained in a letter to the Girl
Scout Council asking for approval
to use it towards her Gold Award,
is to bring awareness to the high
rate of suicides, divorce, domestic
violence, and drug and alcohol
abuse that surviving soldiers
returning home to civilian life
may encounter as a result of
experiencing the loss of fellow
soldiers during deployment.
She is in the process of
presenting talks and brochures
to local service and military-
connected organizations and
is implementing a sustainable
memorial brick program to raise
funds that will be used for retreat
upkeep, purchasing materials, and
a possible sponsorship program.
"We've gotten a lot of
community support for this
project," said Kowall. "People
want to do more than just say
'thank you for your service' and
this gives them a chance to do it."
There is so much to do at the
new retreat center, where vets
can go for a few hours or days,
whatever they need to help heal,
she added.
Kaitlyn submitted her idea for
her Gold Award project to the Girl
Scout Council in November. It
included detailed plans to build
and pay for a brick fire pit where
veterans can sit around the fire
overlooking the Little Manatee
River and relax, fish and talk.
Kowall said she hopes someone
will take on the project of
building a wood deck near the
fire pit because there is a special
memorial planned that they will
eventually be able to see from that
spot.
"Everyone likes to sit around a
fire. The veterans have said they
would really enjoy this," Kowall
said. "I want to have a unique


memorial near the fire pit. I have
checked very thoroughly and
don't think there is a memorial
anywhere in Florida dedicated to
those who have
died while in the
service that did
not die in combat.
This memorial
would be for
anyone who has
died for any reason
while enlisted in
the service of our
country."
Besides just
being a cozy place
UDA to sit and talk, the
fire circle will be
used at the end of therapy sessions
where the veterans and their
families symbolically let go of
the causes of their grief and allow
them to continue their lives with
the healthy therapies they will
learn in the week long seminars,
Kaitlyn said in her explanatory
letter to the Council.
The circle is planned to be
eight feet in diameter and will
accommodate 8-to-10 people at a
time. The budget for the project is
$2,276.19, she said.
Donations of memorial bricks
may be purchased online at www.
mywarriorsplace.org.
"We'll have to dig the hole and
use regular bricks to begin and
then replace them with memorial
bricks as they come in," Kaitlyn
said.
Monetary and labor donations
are also needed, she said.
"I am so grateful Kaitlyn chose
our place for her project," said
Kowall. "We have only been open
a short time and I can already
see the impact it has made on the
veterans and families who have
come here."
Not only do people come from
afar and stay a few days for the
talks and relaxation and sharing,
but local people often go by for
just a few hours when they feel
especially down and out.
"One man from Riverview, for
example," Kowall said, "comes
by for a couple of hours several
times a week. He said he used
to just go into his room alone
when he started feeling his grief
but now he has a place to go that
helps him deal with it."
People who want to help
Kaitlyn with her Gold Award
project or help My Warrior's
Place with another project- may
visit My Warrior's Place at 101
22nd St. N.W., Ruskin or contact
the organization through the
website listed above.
"By taking action to raise
sustainable awareness of Project
Corregidor, Kaitlyn is bringing to
light an issue that affects not only
soldiers in our local communities
but around the world." Medeiros
said. "As she moves closer toward
earning her Girl Scout Gold
Award, we can't wait to see the
lasting impact that her leadership
will inspire."

the Everglades stretches back 15
millennia, making the relatively
recent discovery of Florida
significant, but somewhat less
impactful. This is an ancient land,
alternating between foreboding,
unforgiving and enchanting -
sometimes in the same breath. In
the Everglades,

Yet before
long, the sunrise
I had waited for
with cameras
at the ready began to lighten
the eastern sky, revealing a
thick layer of morning clouds
that would prevent the stunning
imagery I had envisioned from
being collected in photographs.
Our time in the Everglades
wasn't wasted in the least, but
it was, perhaps, lost. Being lost
in time in today's frantic world
of technology is a rare pleasure
and a privilege. My smart phone
was useless, with the words,
"No Service" in place of the bars
that normally keep me shackled
to the world on a 24/7 basis.
For those hours in the beauty
and tranquility, I was lost to
the natural world, immersed in

During the ceremony she praised

"I was here before the doors
opened. I can tell you and they can
tell you that this is not the same
place we opened seven years ago,"
Mattison said. "This school has be-
come a success story and I could not
be prouder to be a teacher here and
I could not be prouder to be your
teacher. The whole reason why I
think I exist is for you guys," she


said, speaking to her students.
Tanya Doran of the Greater Riv-
erview Chamber of Commerce

of appreciation from the Riverview
community, thanking her for her

Groundbreaking for new Veterans Monument is April 20 Fish Tales: Do yourself a favor:


The Hillsborough CountyVeterans
Park and Museum Committee will
hold a groundbreaking for the War
Between the States (WBTS) Theatre
Monument at 2 p.m. on Saturday,
April 20 at the Hillsborough County
Veterans Park, 3602 US Highway
301, Tampa, /4 mile south of the
Florida State Fairgrounds.
The WBTS Theatre is one of 12
dedicated to the service and sacrifice
of Hillsborough Veterans in each of
America's wars since Hillsborough
County became a civic entity in
1834.
Upon completion, the Theatre
will comprise a Monument that
will bear the names of men from
Hillsborough County who fought
to protect their homes and Florida.
It will also include a history of the
War's impact upon the founding
families of Hillsborough County.
Through the HCVPM's efforts, the
project has garnered enthusiastic
support from numerous veterans
and historical groups, all seeking
to honor Hillsborough County
Veterans who served during the
WBTS conflict.
Tampa Bay's often forgotten but
significant naval history during
the War will be a highlight of
the Theatre's Monument design,
bringing attention to the legendary
blockade runners, their courageous
captains and crews who risked life
and property during the Wartime
naval blockade to deliver critical
wartime supplies. Once completed,
this Monument will be the only one
commemorating this aspect of the
War anywhere in the United States.
The groundbreaking ceremony
will be conducted by HCVPM
Committee Chairman David Braun
and assisted by the others supporting
the project including the Tampa
Bay Sesquicentennial Commission
(www.tampabay 150.org).
Early donors to the WBTS
Monument fund will be recognized


during the event. The public
is invited and encouraged to
participate by sponsoring a
memorial brick or bench (details
at www.veteransparkhc.org). The
WBTS Monument project will
continue to fruition in concert
with the other War Theatres, as
Hillsborough County builds a
world-class Veterans Park honoring
the sacrifice of veterans of all the
County's armed conflicts.
Following the groundbreaking, a
solemn Confederate Memorial Day
Ceremony will be held. Florida
Statute 683.01 designates April 26
as Confederate Memorial Day, a day
set aside to honor the Confederate
Veteran. This colorful ceremony will
feature prominent Gen. JEB Stuart-
impressionist Wayne Edwards,
patriotic music, traditional hymns,
kilted Color Guard and Post Piper
of the Scottish American Military
Society Post 1951, and culminate in
a black powder rifle salute by gray-
clad re-enactors. Complimentary
refreshments will be served after
the ceremony.
A special attraction will be a
special showing of War Between

scheduled to break ground this fall. The plan is still so new that neither
site specifications nor exact floor-space are known.

Only one tree will need to be
removed, Clements said. "It was
important to us to minimize tree take-
down."
"Any dollars left over from site
and construction costs will be put
into a larger and better building.
More storage space can always be
used. Every program needs storage
space," Thornton said. \ hIo lug the
playground is relatively easy. It is
about at the end of its life anyway."
The design phase should take ap-
proximately four months, including
permitting, and then there should be
about eight months for construction,
Thornton said.
'This would put groundbreaking in
the late fall," he added. "After that
we are imagining about a 12-month
construction window."
The park has after-school programs,
outdoor basketball, field softball,
a fitness room, programs for teens,
toddlers, and senior citizens, and
summer camps.
Right now, a seven-to-nine person
volunteer committee is needed to
help guide the community's wishes.
"We want to be responsive to the
community's wishes right down to
the colors we use," Thornton said.
To become a member of that com-


mittee, residents may contact the
park at (813) 672-7881.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



It is not often that you hear of
this man, a man who is so dis-
honest that even his shadow is
crooked.
One day, however, he became a
Christian. A neighbor who noticed
the dramatic difference asked his


wife, "Has your husband changed
his religion?"
"No," came the reply. "My hus-
band has never been religious. He
turned his life over to Christ and
God changed him."
No one has to stay the way they
are discouraged, defeated, dis-
graced, dishonest. If we ask Him,
God can and will change us. But
we must be willing.
One's age, background and at-
titude are irrelevant. God can
take what we have and turn our
fear into faith, our weakness into
strength and make our crooked
lives straight.
Again, we must be willing if
we want to experience His power
to bring about His change in our
lives.
Here's the question we must
all answer. If I am not who God
wants me to be, am I willing to
surrender my life to Christ and al-
low His power to change me into
His likeness?

Cleo is a big and beautiful gal
who was found as a stray. She has
gorgeous white fur and a loving
personality. She purrs as soon as
she sees a volunteer coming. She
lives in our office since she is a
tad bit overweight. We have this
beauty on a diet though so it won't
be long before she has her girly
curves back. Cleo loves to boss
around the dogs who live in and
pass through the office. Since she
has received all of the special TLC
she needs, she is ready for that for-
ever home. As part of the adoption
Cleo has been spayed, brought up-
to-date on shots and will be micro
chipped.

Cody
Cody is an adorable Lab mix
whose owner didn't want him just
because he wasn't a little puppy
any more. We could see the heart-
ache in Cody's eyes when he first
came to the shelter. Cody is smart
and sweet. He will climb half of
his body into your lap for a hug
and loves to play fetch. He is also
highly motivated by treats. Cody is
housebroken, knows "sit," walks
nicely on a leash and is great in the
car. He has been around children
but was an only dog in his house-
hold. Cody is a great dog who will
be a faithful companion. Please
give Cody the second chance at a
happy (forever) home that he de-
serves! Cody is neutered and cur-
rent on his shots.

Peace of Mind the Old Fashion Way






A Special Event for Retirees and Those Planning For Retirement


Has your retirement plan changed to meet the times?

Planning for retirement today is much different than it was even 5 or 10 years ago. The stock market rises
and plummets in reaction to events a half a world away. People are living longer than ever, meaning their
money needs to last longer. Record government deficits and record government spending will almost
certainly lead to higher taxes and inflation. Many retirement plans are simply no longer suitable for
today's volatile economic conditions. Whether you are planning for retirement or already retired, a
second opinion from an experienced financial planner may uncover opportunities that could put you
in better financial position no matter what the future holds. This special event is by invitation only, will fill
up fast and absolutely requires a reservation in advance. Please reserve your space today by calling
(800) 669-7248.

* Are you confident that your retirement plan can weather this financial storm?
* Do your investments suit your stage in life?
* Do you completely understand your investments and the associated risks?
* Will you outlive your retirement savings?
* Do you know the 4 Myths of investing and how to design a portfolio based on Nobel Prize
winning research?
* Is your current broker or advisor addressing your concerns?

Please join local Registered Representative Dennis Haywood for an informative lunch exclusively
devoted to the financial challenges that retirees and those nearing retirement face today. He will
talk about the obstacles, the opportunities, and provide fresh ideas that can help you survive even thrive
- in this unpredictable economic climate.

If you are retired or plan to retire in the next 5 years, and have
an IRA, 401(k) or other retirement accounts don't miss this event!

Male panther released; rescued with sister as kittens in 2011


Biologists with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) released a
male Florida panther Wednesday
night at the Rotenberger Wildlife
Management Area. The release
site is along the borders of Palm
Beach, Broward and Hendry
counties.
"We chose this location because
it is part of the species' known
range, and it should provide
ample undeveloped area for the
panther to acclimate into the
wild," said Darrell Land, FWC
panther team leader.
The FWC rescued the panther
and its sister as 5-month-old
kittens in September 2011 in
northern Collier County after
their mother was found dead.
The animals were then taken
to the White Oak Conservation
Center in Yulee, where they were
subsequently raised. The panther
siblings are now nearly 2 years
old.
'These panthers most likely
would not have survived
without our intervention and the
subsequent support of White Oak
staff," said Land.
The female panther was
successfully released in February
in Collier County. Through post-
release monitoring, biologists
have observed her adapting well
and behaving as typical wild
female panthers do.
FWC biologists have
determined the male panther is
healthy and has grown to a size
that should prepare him for life in
the wild. However, young male
panthers must be on their guard to
avoid adult male panthers.
"We are pleased with the
progress of the female since
her release," said Land. "Young
males face the additional


survival challenge of potential
confrontations with older males,
but we believe our choice of a
release site will minimize the risk
of such encounters."
Both releases were coordinated
in consultation with partners
from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service.
An estimated 100 to 160 adult
and subadult endangered panthers
remain in south Florida.
Florida residents can support
conservation efforts like the
rescue and rehabilitation of
these panthers by purchasing a
panther license plate. Fees from
license plate sales are the primary
funding source for the FWC's
research and management of
Florida panthers.
'The rescue, rehabilitation and
release of these panthers were
made possible by these license
plate funds," said Land.
To report dead or injured
panthers, call the FWC's Wildlife
Alert Hotline at 888-404-FWCC
(3922) or #FWC or *FWC on a
cell phone.

panthers, including a guide to
living with panthers, go to www.

Why advertise in The Observer?


Advertising reminds customers that
you're still there and ready to serve them!
Make sure you're not forgotten. It also
shows stability in a time when many
businesses are struggling. If you're still
here, you must be doing something right-


and that promotes confidence.
Newspapers are portable. Sure, you can
advertise on an electronic device, but it's not
likely that a reader will leave his iPad, smart
phone or laptop behind when he leaves a
waiting room or restaurant.
