See the story on page 3 PRST STDPAIDRUSKIN, FLORIDA 33570 PERMIT NO. 8 INSIDE: Mom thanks Samaritan who tried to save her sonKenneth Lee Redding died after the Riverview 7-11 robberyBy KEVIN BRADY%  kevin@observernews.netI am glad my son didnt have to die alone. Jeannette Cochran took that small comfort after her son was stabbed to death while working the night shift at a Riverview 7-11 last week. Kenneth Lee Redding, 54, was killed during a robbery at the store July 10. Lawrence Robert Bongiovanni, 20, stabbed Redding multiple times before stealing scratch-off lottery tickets, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office. Jimmy Walker, a regular customer at the store at Bloomingdale Avenue and Providence Road, found Redding bleeding profusely in an aisle at 1:30 a.m. After rushing outside to tell another customer to call 911, Walker returned to Reddings side using napkins to try to stem the bleeding and encouraging Redding to hold on until paramedics arrived. The young man tried to save him, Cochran said. I would like to thank him personally for what he did. Redding had been working at the store for 18 months but never worried about his safety, Cochran said. He preferred the night shift because he had worked for Tampa Bay Steel for at least 10 years on the night shift and just got used to it. The brutal attack at the 7-11 was a shock to many in the area, which borders Winthrop Town Centre and several quiet residential neighborhoods. Its a very nice area, Cochran said. I was never concerned because he told Lawrence Robert Bongiovanni, 20, stabbed Redding multiple times before stealing scratchoff lottery tickets. HILLSBOROUGhH COUNTY ShSHERIFFS O OFFIcCE PhHOTOContinued on page 27% Continued on page 22% At area marinas, its just like old times only betterKevin Lefler wondered about death, sold his Tampa plumbing business and retired. Today he is finding new life with a new business operating the marinas at Little Harbor. His focus is entirely on the boaters.MITchCH T TRAPhHAGEN PhPHOTOSKevin Lefler on the floating docks at the Little Harbor Marina, one of two resort marinas that his company is now running. He isnt a developer, nor does he work for one. A lifelong boater, his job is to run the marinas. By %  MitchITCH TraphagenRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netIn a place like Florida where change comes in the waves of the thousands of people who move here, how things were a decade ago is little more than ancient history. A decade ago, Ruskin was a boating community and the heart of that community was in three somewhat rundown marinas in an area collectively known as Bahia Beach. It was a peaceful yet thriving place for boaters, and nonboaters often walked the docks just taking in the vibe. It was a good place. When a development corporation purchased the marinas from the families who owned them, things changed, as would be expected. The developers didnt appear to have much interest in running marinas at the time, their focus was well, that is not entirely clear as their efforts to develop the area ran smack dab into the enormous burst of the housing bubble. For a long time, distant banks have owned the property and a certain stagnant peace again fell over the area. More and more, tourists came and enjoyed themselves with no knowledge of the status or history of the place. A new company has since purchased much of the property and today things are changing again. History, in fact, may be repeating itself in a good, albeit different, way. Ruskin could again become a boating community and what is now known as Little Harbor, along with nearby Shell Point Marina, could again become the pulse of it and of the surrounding communities. Kevin Lefler has been around boats since he was a teenager, working and saving money to buy his first boat at the age of 16. He started a plumbing company and through hard work and by relentlessly putting his customers first, he built it into a success, providing a good life for him and his wife Peggy. And then one day, he thought about death. One day I wondered what would happen if I die? My wife would own a plumbing company and what was she going to do with that? The value of it would drop, Lefler said. It was a reputable plumbing company so I was able to sell it and invest the money. The problem is that I didnt die. When a group of investors bought much of the Little Harbor property, including the marina formerly known as Bahia Del Sol, now named the Village Marina, they began asking around for someone to help them figure out just what it was they had. Leflers name came up and shortly thereafter, he was asked to manage the marina. Several months later, the investors bought the Little Harbor Marina, formerly known as the Bahia Beach Marina. At that point, they asked Lefler if he would consider taking both marinas on as his own business. I dont work for them anymore, he said. It is my business running these marinas. I get all of the money but I pay all of the bills, and I make a lease payment. Anything that needs to be done, any improvements that need to be made, that is all through my business and my money, but I dont have to wait around for approval. During the years of bank ownership, little investment was made in the To better serve his customers, Lefler, along with his wife Peggy, recently opened the Village Market near the tennis courts on the main resort. The SouthShore Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new addition to his marinas.

No more standing in line for food baskets. No more hand-outs for free. So how then can it still be called a mission? Weve found that people who have a vested interest in things are much happier, learn more, and get more out of what we have to offer, said Good Samaritans Executive Director Bill Cruz. Weve started offering a unique type of educational opportunity for everyone who comes to us. Our adult education classes are a healthy balance of information, Christian discipleship, prayer and relationship building. Class attendance is used as an exchange for tangible goods that lift people eventually out of situations where they continuously need assistance. Classes are mainly held on Tuesdays during the day and Thursdays in the evening so that no matter what type of work hours a person has, they can participate, he said. There are a few things given on other days and times as well. We knew people wouldnt want to study nutrition but they might take a cooking class, so we call it that, he explained. This class teaches how to feed a family in a healthy way, which will help lower the high statistics of preventable deaths from outof-control diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and many others. But preparing and eating healthy food is far from all being taught at Good Samaritan. There have been classes on banking and finance and how to stay out of debt, keep a better house and learn a trade. From sewing to basic auto maintenance, classes are being offered to people who come to the mission for help. In return for each class taken, a coin is given that can be used in the missions new store. Instead of just being handed a bag of food or clothing, they get to go into our store and pick from shelves using the coins. Each coin gives them the right to fill one bag with things they choose. Cruz said the concept is that if someone puts time and effort into something, they will appreciate it more, and theyll learn something from the experience that helps lift them to a better way of living both in the short and long run. We talk about marriage and parenting, he said. So if both parents come to two classes lets say, on a Thursday night, they could each get two coins, equaling four bags from our store. The mission is seeking people from the community to teach things in all ranges from painting and gardening to prayer and crafts, songs, finance techniques, or baking your favorite dish. Its easy. If you have a specialty, you just have to fill 20 minutes of time. The first few minutes of each class is really a getting to know each other time, he said. Cruz, who is both a minister and a licensed therapist, his wife Theresa and their staff get a special thrill when one of the students first realizes he or she has something they can teach. Its a real ah-ha moment, when somebody realizes they have something they can give back. It can be as simple a thing as showing someone else how to bake a special recipe, he said. Because people often bring their families to classes directly from their jobs, food is provided before evening classes start. The Sams Club store on Big Bend Road has developed a special relationship with the mission and gives them whatever would ordinarily be thrown away because of things like damage to the box or container, he said. Little Caesars in Sun City Center provides pizzas. Goodson Farms has provided cooler space. Cadence Bank gave talks on avoiding credit card debt. Its all about community, Cruz explained. Learning from each other, and being contributing members of the community. Good Samaritan can use whatever is offered, whenever it is made available, he said. There was a local fishing tournament on Fathers Day, he said. Right in the middle of the day I got a phone call asking if we could use fresh fish. The fish were delivered by local fishermen who had participated in the tournament. They were all gutted and cleaned. Changes have been in the works since 2009 when Cruz talked with Falcon Towing in Wimauma sent instructors to teach women at the mission about basic auto maintenance.the Florida Department of Health about changing the items that went in food baskets. I knew we had to do something to help people towards a healthier diet when we saw the figures, he said. But changes take time, and educating the people is a large part of that. Churches and civic groups can choose from lists of things that are repetitively needed and hold internal drives for things like baby items, disposable diapers, hygiene and housecleaning items as well as for food. For example, one group may want to have a childs underwear day, while another collects toothbrushes. Those who want to find out more about the mission may visit www.gsmission.org or make an appointment for a tour by calling (813) 634-7136. It is located at 14920 Balm-Wimauma Rd. in Wimauma.Leaders at Good Samaritan Mission in Wimauma have changed their give-aways to earned clothing and food that can be obtained by attending classes and then chosen by participants instead of having to take whatever is in the bag theyre handed.

6 JULY 18, 2013When I started writing a column like this over 30 years ago, it was a way for me to help reinforce in my own mind the principles of positive attitude and maybe do some good for others who wanted to walk on the sunny side of the street. After reading these columns for a number of years, a friend sent me the clippings of my first 60 columns stapled together and said, Publish these in a book. I did, and it is entitled Within Your Reach; that book has sold over 25,000 copies in print. Companies like British Petroleum, Reynolds and Reynolds, and Amway have provided it as a positive gift to their customers and/or employees. An Amway couple, Ken and Sally Anderson, have given hundreds of copies away to anyone they thought could use a lift. The following letter to me is from someone who benefited from their kindness.Dear Bill: About two months ago, Ken and Sally Anderson gave me a copy of your book Within Your Reach. We were having lunch and I was trying to sort out my day and make decisions about my life. I was grateful for the book, put it in my briefcase, and drove to my next stop, the Collin County Juvenile Detention Center. The CCJDC is home for youths who are serving 180day sentences for violations of law and/or probation. The program my peers and I work in By William Hodges is under a grant from the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Three of us provide 20 hours of chemical dependency education, individual and family therapy, and parenting education. The youth with whom we work are largely uncaring and unmotivated most of the time. Something changed that day, however. First was the warmth and friendship I received from Ken and Sally. The second was my wanting to share the report of having lunch with my friends and their gift with the young people. They immediately asked what the book was about. I opened it and began to read aloud. I opened to The Seed and read. The room was quiet when I finished, and then I heard a sniff, then more. Two of the youth and one of the detention officers were very affected by the reading. George, one of the least cooperative and most quiet, asked if he could read a selection. I handed him the book and he read in a slow, halting manner. No one said a word until he was finished. George just stared at the floor. In a few moments, he asked the group what the reading had meant to them. Everyone responded positively and appropriately. By the end of the three-hour session, all who wanted to had read from the book. All had participated, and all said it was the best group they ever had. I was asked if I would bring the book back. The miracles that have occurred since I received this book have been astonishing. I am not sure what all my miracles have been, but I know that others have been positively affected by my presence and your book. In others, and other settings, I have seen leaps in personal growth that have remained long after a reading. George, for instance, was released two weeks later and calls me once a week to tell me how much better his life is without using or selling drugs. His life is still hard, but he lives in the present, no longer compares himself to others, and starts each day with a prayer of thanksgiving. There are lots more stories. This one was the first and most impactful to me. I give my loving thanks to Ken and Sally. I give thanks that they found you and your book. Sincerely, James T. Wayland, Ph.D.James letter meant a lot to me; it is an example of how infusions of positive attitude can do more than a profusion of punishments. It is people like James, Ken and Sally who light candles rather than curse the darkness. They make a better world for all of us. Within Your Reach is now available in e-book format at www.Amazon.com.

JULY 18, 2013 7 By KEVIN BRADY kevin@observernews.netA Brandon company has helped rescue five horses that otherwise might have been euthanized. A $1,900 donation from Talk Fusion, a global video communication company headquartered on Kingsway Road, to Florida Dog & Animal Rescue helped the organization to give five horses Dreamer, Cyrus, Expressions, Scarr and Brass Indian the transportation, food and care they needed to survive. Talk Fusion founder Bob Reina made the donation after he heard the animals would be sent to the slaughterhouse if no one stepped forward to take on the expense and responsibility of ownership of the horses. Talk Fusion is proud to have been able to help these graceful, intelligent creatures find a safe and loving home, Reina said. It is all part of the companys commitment to speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves, continued Allison Roberts, Talk Fusion VP of Training & Development. Based in St. Petersburg, FDARescue provides unwanted, neglected and abused dogs and horses with love, food, shelter and appropriate medical attention. The nonprofits rescues usually come from owners, sheriffs departments and animal control. The organization attempts to find loving, adoptive homes for each of their rescues. The donation saved the horses from a slaughterhouse so we are extremely grateful to Bob and his company, said Carmine Brower, who founded FDARescue in April. Bob also gave us $3,500 earlier this year, which all went Local company helps rescue horses from slaughterhouseA $1,900 donation from Brandons Talk Fusion helped rescue these horses from the slaughterhouse.FLORIDA DOG & ANIMAL RESCUE PHOT Oto the care of one dog that needed care at a vet. Brower, a St. Pete resident, grew up around animals with as many as 13 foster dogs in her home at one time. Her mom started a pet rescue organization in 1982 that cared for local animals from all over Tampa Bay until her death in 1989. A growing young family meant her daughter couldnt pick up the reins until this year. We are really looking for donations because everything is now coming out of our pockets, said Brower, who wrote a check for $200 last week for the care of one dog. We are looking to buy a property in the Bay area but it will take some money. For now, Brower is sheltering three dogs at her home while her friend Krista Morio has two dogs and seven horses at her Brandon home. Kate Carr, another member of the group, has two foster dogs at her Clearwater home. Earlier this year, the Talk Fusion donated $76,000 to the Florida Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. We were sincerely moved by the generosity of these charitable contributions, said Sean Hawkins, the SPCAs Florida CEO, who said the donation will help the groups plan to enhance its existing trap, neuter and release program to help control the areas feral cat population. The money is being used to buy a new feral cat transport van and build a feral cat patio at the SPCAs headquarters in Tampa. The associates and corporate team at Talk Fusion are proud of their commitment to giving back, Reina said. The outpouring of support in raising such a substantial amount in such a short time serves as inspiring proof of Talk Fusions dedication to helping others. Founded in 2007, Talk Fusion provides personal and business video communication products marketed in more than 100 countries. The company has also donated to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Brandon area youth baseball as well as programs for at-risk youth.

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column alerting seniors to the dangers of summertime heat? I manage a number of urgent care clinics, and last summer we had more than 200 cases of heat-related illnesses, most of who were seniors. I would like to reduce that this year. Concerned Citizenr Dear Concerned, I certainly can. Most people dont realize that extreme summer heat causes thousands of heat-related illnesses in the U.S. each year, and kills more people than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined, and seniors are among the most vulnerable. The reasons behind this are because of the bodys ability to regulate temperature through blood circulation and sweat glands tends to decline with age. Bodies of older adults also contain far less water than a younger person, and older brains dont recognize thirst as easily, making them more likely to get dehydrated. In addition, many seniors have certain health problems that can increase their risk of hyperthermia (when the body overheats). These include: gestive heart failure, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. around. lems with thinking skills. Medications that some seniors take, like diuretics and other high blood pressure drugs, can also cause dehydration or affect the ability of their heart, blood vessels or sweat glands to respond to the heat. Signs of Danger heat-related illness. The signs to watch for include a body temperature above 103 degrees Fahrenheit, a rapid pulse rate, throbbing headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and hot, dry skin with the absence of sweating. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing these symptoms, call 911 immediately because heat stroke is a medical emergency. can develop after several days of exposure to high temperatures. The warning signs are heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, fainting, dizziness, headache, and nausea or vomiting. What to Do If you think you may be suffering from a heat-related condition, cool yourself down by going indoors into air conditioning, remove or loosen any tight-fitting or heavy clothing, drink plenty of water (but avoid alcohol and caffeine), take a cool bath or shower, or apply cold water, ice packs or cold compresses to your skin. And when you do go out in the heat, be sure to dress in lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing, avoid extended periods of sun exposure and drink plenty of water even if you dont feel thirsty. Seniors who live without air conditioning should go to public places that have it like shopping malls, senior centers or public libraries. Your local health department can also refer you to an air-conditioned shelter in your area. For those who cant afford to run their air conditioning at home, theres the federal Low-Income ity companies and charitable organizations that may be able to help you with your utility costs. To find out about the programs available to you, along with their eligibility requirements and how to apply, call Referral project at 866-674-6327 or visit energynear.org. For more extreme heat-related safety tips, visit the Center for Disease Control and Prevention website at cdc.gov/extremeheat. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

The $1.9-million, four-year study funded by National Institute on Aging, Improving Dementia Caregiver Sleep Biomarkers, is led by USF Coldowed Chair Meredeth Rowe, RN, PhD, FGSA, FAAN. Fifteen million Americans provided an estimated 17.5 billion hours of unpaid care to people with Alzheimers disease and other dementias in 2012, according to the Alzheimers Association. Recent studies indicate that caregivers, unpaid family members or friends who assist people with Alzheimers with daily activities, may experience sleep loss from the constant demands of caregiving. According to a 2006 Institute of Medicine report, the cumulative effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of adverse health consequences including increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke. The primary focus of Dr. Rowes research is finding an effective and easy-to-use treatment that can improve sleep in Alzheimers caregivers to increase their overall health and reduce the nursing home placement of people with dementia. In the latest research, Dr. Rowe is evaluating whether a combined intervention using CareAlert and cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia improves sleep in individuals who care for people with dementia and Alzheimers who wake up at night. The study, conducted in the USF College of Nursing Caregiving Laboratory, will include as many as 100 participants. All will receive the CareAlert device and one of two sleep therapies assigned at random.

Since we collect sound with our ears and process the sound in our brain, over time and without hearing assistance, we can lose the ability to understand the spoken word. This documented process is called auditory deprivation. According to Teri James Bellis, PhD, in her landmark book on Auditory Processing Disorder, When the Brain Cant Hear, As sound travels through an imperfect auditory pathway, words spoken to the aficted listener may become jumbled, distorting original meaning and rendering the words unintelligible. When you think about a conversation with all the sounds, the inections and tempo changes, it makes communication extremely complicated. When a hearing loss has been present and untreated, the ability to follow the conversation can become extremely difcult. Without receiving the appropriate stimuli, the brain stops processing sounds like background noise and can no longer lter speech clearly. You may answer a question incorrectly, withdraw, smile and pretend you understood the conversa tion. This can be particularly troublesome when you are visiting the doctor, and important information is being relayed. In some cases, people have been misdiagnosed with Alzheimers disease because they were unable to follow the conversation. According to world renowned otolaryngologist, Dr. John Shea Jr., of the famed Shea Ear Clinic, If a person is hard of hearing and they dont get amplication, they are not hearing and they lose the ability to understand. Once familiar sounds, like the hum of a refrigerator, slowly fade and become unrecognizable noise competing with spoken words. Dr. Shea went on to say, When presented with amplication, or hearing aids, speech understanding becomes clearer. However, it is a continual process of improvement. Stimulating the brain with sound may help to overcome the auditory deprivation process, and getting help early is critical to a long term success. Now, the goal is to do everything we can to maintain the speech recognition you have. You need to wear the best hearing aids you can afford, full time in both ears to hear correctly. Hearing aids solve the problems people have with communication, and they help to preserve and protect the brains ability to recognize speech. Hearing loss ranks number three behind hypertension and arthritis. Often called the invisible disability, hearing loss happens slowly over time and may go unnoticed for years. According to an article in Post Graduate Medicine, by Drs. Shohet and Bent, Loss of hearing is a national health problem with signicant physical and psychological repercussions. Although there is no cure for certain forms of hearing loss, many patients can be helped, especially when the problem is recognized early. Wearing amplication (hearing aids) has been proven to help preserve the remaining hearing and speech clarity. If you think you may have hearing loss, the most important rst step is to have your hearing tested. Your results will identify which frequencies or pitches you do or do not hear and, if you do have a hearing loss, getting help has never been easier and with todays advanced technology you will get clear, crisp, more natural sound.

She is a cat comfortable in her own fur, she loves her canine siblings and her family. We havent yet lost hope.By Mitch Traphagenmitch@observernews.net Observations:Silver liningsIf there can be a silver lining to missing a much-loved pet it is finding out just how much so many people care about things beyond their own personal worlds. My cat, Emma, is still missing and has been for going on two weeks now. She is not an outdoor cat and has never before spent a night outside alone. In multiple searches through our neighborhood and beyond, we have found no trace of her. It is as if she disappeared into thin air. At our front door we installed an EmmaCam with night vision that emails us when it detects motion, and we have put up Lost Cat fliers and posted information online, in addition to my mentioning her last week in this column. Numerous friends reposted her information on Facebook, businesses allowed us to put up her flier and over the weekend, someone from a few streets over called us after seeing the flier and a cat that looked a little like Emma. He then stayed with the cat as we quickly drove over to meet him. It wasnt Emma but we had met a good soul in that process. He didnt have to do that for people and a cat he didnt know, but he did and we are grateful. We are also very grateful for the emails and the prayers youve sent. That does matter, and it does help. The area from Riverview to Ruskin is well represented on the Facebook page entitled Lost and Found Pets of Hillsborough County (www.facebook.com/ Lostandfoundpetsofhillsboroughcounty). Emmas photo was on that page and someone contacted us saying they had seen a similar cat at Hillsborough County Animal Services. Michelles office is not far from that facility on Falkenburg Road and she has been going there daily. She had seen that cat, it was a male, and knew it wasnt Emma. After receiving the message, however, we decided to go up to check again anyway. We walked through the aisles of cages containing lost cats, calling out for Emma. Paws and noses stuck through the bars with lots of meows, as if saying, Im Emma Kitty! Im Emma Kitty! Take me home! The staff at Animal Services had named the cat Edison, and he did look a little like Emma, but he had a nasty-looking, quarter-sized chunk of fur and skin missing from his left front leg. As I talked to him, it was clear he didnt feel very well. On Sunday, we went back again after seeing a listing for another cat that had just been picked up. Again, it wasnt Emma, and I went back to visit with Edison. This time, he reached his little paw through the bars and clasped my finger, a cat way of holding hands. He was close enough that I was able to reach through and scratch his head. He began to purr. Edisons last day on Earth was Monday. His time had run out. Over the weekend, the parking lot at Animal Services was full people were there, like us, looking for their own pets or were there looking to adopt a pet. On Sunday evening, Michelle and I stood in the rain talking about whether or not we should take Edison home with us. We werent there looking for just any cat, we were looking for our cat. And, above all, we could not possibly save them all. Reluctantly, we left without him, knowing that an older, injured cat would be an unlikely candidate for adoption in the few hours he had remaining. Animal Services tends to get a bad rap but our experience with them has been very positive. We have met people who truly care about animals, doing a difficult job the best they can with a very limited budget. The facility is open seven days a week until 7 p.m., and all weekend, staff and volunteers were out front with adoptable dogs, working to find homes for them. It is an overwhelming job approximately 20,000 animals go through that facility each year and most, like Edison, run out of time. If the staff could change that, they would. They have no choice but to count on us to change it, through adoptions and through spaying and neutering pets. If you have room in your heart, home and wallet for a furry little friend, please consider making the trip up there, or to C.A.R.E., or to any number of shelters. In Ruskin, Robin Roberts is in the process of forming a nonprofit named Critter Mama Rescue (www.facebook.com/CritterMamaRescue), and is actively saving and caring for cast-off dogs. She would be happy for any help you %

On Sunday night, we were told that on an animals last day in the shelter, they begin euthanizing at 5:30 a.m. I went to bed that night missing Emma and worrying about Edison. We held paws; I made him happy enough to purr, I thought to myself as a consolation. On Monday morning, just after 5:30 a.m., Michelle could see the toll everything was taking on me. A good friend once said that we have reached the age when life stopped giving and had begun taking. I felt that distinctly on Monday morning. Emma, Edison, health concerns with family and friends, and so much more were adding up. Missing Emma has left a hole in our hearts that nothing else can fill, and we wont stop looking for her. The silver lining in the efforts made by friends and strangers to help find her, and from your thoughts, prayers and emails, have made the difference between a completely bleak day and one that is at least marginally bearable. Thank you for that. Michelle left for work that morning and then called a bit after 8 a.m. There are a lot of qualities that other people have that we wish we had, she said. You know, like common sense. She was calling from Animal Services. For so long Ive whined and moaned about this and that, looking for a purpose in an increasingly insane world. We cant save them all, but maybe we can save one. Maybe that is my purpose. Its as good as any. Edison was still there. They opened his cage for Michelle and he laid his little head down in her hand. He was skin and bones. Before long, the adoption was done and we decided to rename him Ernie. The veterinarian at Animal Services had to anesthetize him to take care of some of his medical needs before we could take him home. An hour later, she called with sadness in her voice to say that Ernie had two extremely rare and fatal illnesses that infect a very small percentage of cats. He was still under anesthesia and she thought it best to euthanize him while he was asleep. We wanted a miracle but none was forthcoming. Most parents of children can take a certain, unspoken comfort in knowing that their children will outlive them. Pet owners do not have that luxury. The best we can do is find one or three and enjoy their lives, as they enjoy ours, for the time we have together, making it so their lifetime of happiness outweighs the sadness of their loss. Ernie died on Monday, not as a castoff animal but as one who had been adopted. Ernie had a loving family and had people who shed tears for him. Despite a broken heart, I am happy that I met him and that you now know of him, too. He was loved and he doesnt hurt anymore. We do hurt, of course. But I am certain of one thing: Emma would have loved Ernie, too. I so hope we get the chance to tell her about him. Sometimes you have to find the silver linings wherever you can.Observations Choppy waters and a week of rain hasnt been good for anglers this week. Those watching the weather and fishing only in the mornings had a favorable week of catches. There were reports of tarpon everywhere in our waters jumping and on the run. This popular game fish is caught as a trophy only. It is almost always photographed and released. It has no food value. Its average weight is 68 pounds. It can reach a weight of 350 pounds and length of 8 feet. This is one of the worlds greatest game fishes caught on the open waters of the gulf and ocean backwaters and the bays, inlets, and the deep waters of the harbors and the great ports of the Gulf Coast. Tarpon is caught with a wide variety of baits and a wide variety Fish Tales: Tarpon, star of Florida game fish tournamentsof methods. In some areas it is best to troll with a live crab, but in other areas anglers cast with live pin fish. Some anglers will tell you a large dead fish with a large hook, will get a tarpon every time. No matter how you hook them the fight is the same. They leap and jump, like an outraged demon from the deep. This fish is a scavanger and its flesh smells as bad as the food it eats. Only a starving ship-wreck sailor would eat them. The photo you take can be used for your taxidermist to make a trophy of your catch. You also need a special decal on your license before catching a tarpon. Catfish by the numbers are in all waterways. It seems the more it rains the more catfish surface Some anglers fished all morning long and caught nothing but catfish. It was fun and the anglers had a work-out, but they brought no fish home. All were caught and released. The usual catch of sheepshead from piers and land were caught this week. Flounder surfaced to eat and were caught on high and low tides. Reports came in that king fish or mackerel are jumping across the water. Morning fishing in the lakes, and upper rivers yielded some panfish, fresh water cats, and bass this week. This has been a good week to clean out your boat, go through your bait box, and if you trailer, give it a good check. Im sorry to say I lost my fishing partner of 55 years my husband Matt passed away last week.NEED TO ADVERTISE? Call....

When an explosion rocks their lab, severely injuring Isabel, their caretaker, and “liberating” the apes, a reporter’s human interest piece turns into the story of a lifetime, one he’ll risk his career and his marriage to follow. “Ape House” delivers great entertainment, but it also opens the animal world to us in ways few novels have done, securing Sara Gruen’s place as a master storyteller who allows us to see ourselves as we never have before.

Growing up in rural North Carolina, every Saturday was a special treat of fresh produce, with Mom buying car rots, tomatoes, peaches, greens and beans. I loved the smells, the excite ment and the whole concept of the open air mar ket. Not having a chain grocery store nearby, I’d never seen so many varieties of food in one place! Every now and then, we’d also go to an arts and crafts fair and buy handmade soaps, candles, and honey. What a treat! If Mom was in a generous mood, she might buy a piece of pottery or a small piece of art. So imagine how excited I am we’re having an arts and crafts market here at the Chamber combining the two! Fresh produce and all kinds of cool stuff! This Saturday the 20th, from 3 until 7 p.m., Jen’s Market will host the first Sun City Center Arts and Crafts Market featuring vendors from all over central Florida. It’s a Christmas in July theme complete with a tree, Santa and Mrs. Clause, and eggnog! Jennifer McCafferty, owner of Jen’s Market, has pulled together all kinds of great artisans and craftsmen from Sarasota to Land O-Lakes, Winter Haven to Pinellas County. You can buy Ellie’s Edible Paw Treats (think stocking stuffers for Fido!) and fresh honey from Joyce the Beekeeper. Want a handmade fleece blanket? Blue Star Blankets will be there too. Decorate your home with stained glass, unique pottery, handmade candles, wine bottle art and painted glass containers. Play chess on a handcrafted chessboard with sculpted pieces. Purchase unique greet ing cards, jewelry and handbags. Pamper yourself with goats milk soaps (so good for the skin.) Hungry? There will be all kinds of great food to go with that eggnog and PRP Wines will be there to do wine tastings. Jeff Daniel with the Veggie Bus and Farmer Pete will also be on hand to sell fresh produce from our local farms. Luscious melons, tomatoes, onions, peppers, peaches, apples and so much more. No worries about the heat or one of those sneaky thunderstorms – the market will be held in the Chamber’s air conditioned banquet room, complete with large restrooms and lots of free parking. Speaking of free, there’s no charge to get in. Grab your neighbors and come on by. Visit with Santa and get an early start on your holiday shopping. I’m so excited – it’s like being a kid all over again! I can’t wait to tell Santa what I want for Christmas. Or heck, I may just buy it myself while I’m there.

A teacher was encouraging his class to be kind and think of the needs of the people around them. “Remember, kids, you were put here to help others.” “But,” protested one of the students, “what were the others put here for?” Where would we be if no one helped us? What if no one taught us to read or write or do arithmetic? Sometimes we forget to think about all of the help that others have given us and focus only on ourselves. It is hard to imagine where we would be if no one had ever helped us. So, if we have been helped, should we not also do the same for others? We need to have a goal that reminds us to help everyone we can. As we seek to help others, God will help us. May we never forget that every time we help pull someone uphill, we will find ourselves getting closer to the top. Just for today, rather than pointing a finger at someone, hold out a helping hand.

The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center welcomes Chicago-based Captivating Keyboards on Wednesday, July 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary. Captivating Keyboards is a virtuoso keyboard duo comprised of Alan Tripp and Professional keyboard duo to perform at United Methodist ChurchScott Griffin, recent graduates of the Moody Bible Institute where they began to perform together. These talented young men bring lots of fun and a bit of slapstick to their family-friendly concerts, which feature both two-piano music as well as organ/piano duets. In fact, the church is bringing them in on a Wednesday evening so that its Kidz Club children can be a part of the audience. Scott and Alan began playing duo concerts together back in 2007, and in the following years they were invited to perform at the Instituto de Bellas Artes of Chihuahua, Mexico, Bill Gaithers Fall Family Festival in Indiana, the Maranatha Bible Conference in Michigan, both Word of Life campuses in New York and Florida, and the Crystal Cathedral in California, in addition to many concerts in the Chicago area where they currently reside. In 2013 they began pursuing concerts full-time performing as Captivating Keyboards under their new nonprofit Get Out Of Your Boat Ministries. They enjoy blessing their audiences with unique musical arrangements, creatively combined into entertaining presentations. A donation of $5 is requested at the door on the evening of the concert.

22 OBSERVER NEWS JULY 18, 2013 marinas and, as a result, Lefler is now playing an expensive form of catch-up in making improvements.Luckily I dont need a paycheck right now so I can put everything back into the property, he said. Kevin Lefler is the rare kind of person that you just instinctively feel you can trust. If he says he is going to do something, it will be done. If you need his help, he will be there. One of the things at my plumbing company was that no is not in my vocabulary, he said. I cant stand that word. If a boater wants something, it has to be very much out of reason for me to say no. He has invested thousands in rebuilding bait tanks that now actually work. There is a larger forklift carefully picking up boats for high and dry storage along with a rebuilt ramp that will keep the forklift from going into the water. There are new channel markers, making it easier to navigate the shallows and shoals. He has brought in the Freedom Boat Club to provide those who love the water with opportunities to enjoy it without the work and expense of boat ownership. Its a good deal, he said. You join the club and pay a flat monthly fee and that entitles you to go to any Freedom Boat Club for unlimited use of the boats. You dont have to worry about insurance, maintaining it; you dont have to clean it. You cant possibly own a boat for what the monthly fee is. The organization is very conscientious and they are doing well. The bottom line is that Lefler, himself a lifelong boater, is working hard and investing his time and money to make Ruskin and Little Harbor a center for boating again. He is working hard to win customers over, one at a time, if necessary. His focus is entirely on boaters and the marinas. I would like to see this become the marina of choice not just for those living here but for transients as well, he continued. We are making changes here that are going to make it better for the boaters. I would like to see a clubhouse built, somewhere that the boaters can get together and maybe have a barbecue. I love transients and we are starting to see more of them and some boating clubs coming here. Were happy to be here. We want everyone to know that we want them to be here. I dont care if you are running a marina, a hotdog stand or a construction company, at the end of the day, the customer has to feel like they got something of value. And thats what I work to do, give my customers value so they keep coming back. People are coming back and in some ways history is repeating itself. We want the people at this resort to have fun, that is the main thing, he said. We want them to enjoy the pool, we want them to enjoy the restaurants, we want them to not have to go down the street if they want to pick up a sixpack of Coke or a carton of milk. We want to provide everything they need so they can stay here and just enjoy themselves. With the latter concept in mind, Lefler recently opened the Village Market near the tennis courts at the resort. The store has everything from ice-cold beer, frozen pizzas, snacks and ice cream to hats and t-shirts, along with other sundries and souvenirs. The SouthShore Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new store. The Village Market is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. This property is unlike anything else in Hillsborough County, he said. No one else has what we have on this side of the bay. We have the hotel, the townhomes, we have floating docks and fixed docks, we have the high and dry. Now that the banks are out of the picture, things are going to go well here. We are always looking for ways to make the resort better. We want all of this to be a good resort; for the boaters, for the guests and for the people who live here. Lefler is also offering boat washing services, fishing pole rentals and golf cart rentals, all for nominal fees that barely cover expenses. They are not intended to be moneymakers, they are services offered to make things better for his customers. There are a lot of folks in South County that may have heard about Bahia Beach a long time ago but they havent been down to see what weve done, Lefler said. Wed like all of the people in South County to come visit our marinas, our restaurants, the beach, just come to see what weve got. A marina is by default a place where people are supposed to enjoy themselves and their love of the water that the Tampa Bay area is blessed with. Lefler knows that his 10 partand full-time employees cannot be an exception to that. I want my employees to have a good time. I want them smiling and joking, he said. Still, today Lefler is a busy guy for someone who supposedly retired a few years ago. So is his wife Peggy, who can often be found managing the Village Market. Do I work myself to death? Absolutely not, he said. Am I here seven days a week? Yes, but they are my hours. I have the flexibility to go out to meet the boaters. I love doing that. I can walk around finding things that need to be done. To me, its not a job, its fun. If it wasnt, I wouldnt be doing it. Lefler works to promote the success of the larger resort, but his business is focused solely in making his marinas the best they can be. He is not an absentee owner, he is a hands-on, decisionmaking manager with an intense focus on making his customers, the boaters who visit or stay at his marinas, as happy as possible. If somebody wants something, within reason, the answer will be yes, he said with all sincerity. And with that, he hopped into a golf cart, taking off to talk to some boaters, or perhaps, to find something that needs to be fixed. From the perspective of a longtime boater, it seemed like old times. For information about The Marinas at Little Harbor, call 813645-2288 or visit their website at www.thelittleharbormarina.com.MarinasContinued from page 1 MITCH TRAPHAGEN PHOTOA lot of people call boat storage buildings High and Dry and they may be high, but they arent necessarily dry, Lefler said. Our high and dry has a full roof and boats stay dry. Lefler has the roof repair bills to prove it.

Cochran also thanked friends and neighbors for their concern and expressions of sympathy. Everyone has shown concern. He was very well liked. Redding, who lived next door to his mother on Spivey Road in Gibsonton, enjoyed talking to people and photography, Cochran said. He was a wonderful person. No one had a bad thing to say about him. He was a really nice person, said Gertrude Nagle, who lives opposite the Cochran family. I would see him work in the yard and leaving for work every night. The alleged killer was arrested 18 hours after the attack walking along a roadway in Charlotte County. Bongiovanni, 20, from Brandon, was booked on first degree murder charges. Detectives in the area were on the lookout for Bongiovanni and two other men, Russell Travis Beasley, 24, and Brandan Garrett Green, 22, after lottery tickets stolen during the robbery were cashed in the area. Green and Beasley were picked up in Sarasota County at around the same time. They have since been released. Based on video surveillance, detectives were able to identify two of the suspects by name within hours of Reddings death. Ive seen a lot of stuff but this rates among the most brutal I have seen, said Sheriff David Gee, who called the robbery a premeditated attack. He stalked the clerk, hid and waited for him to be alone. This does not appear to be a robbery gone bad; Bongiovanni went in with the intent to attack the clerk, Gee said. Arrest records show Bongiovanni, who has used several aliases, was first arrested in 2009 at age 17 on a charge of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. He was arrested again one year later on a felony battery charge and returned to jail in 2011 on an aggravated battery charge. 7-11 Samaritan% The suspect in the fatal stabbing of Kenneth Lee Redding is seen on surveillance video wearing a blue and black hoodie.HILLSBOROUGhH COUNTY ShSHERIFFS O OFFIcCE Silent auction, Taste of Tampa BayChampions for Children will host its 5th Annual Christmas in July Silent Auction and Taste of Tampa Bay event Friday, July 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at 3108 W.

Jeannette Cochran took that small comfort after her son was stabbed to death while working the night shift at a Riverview 7-11 last week. Kenneth Lee Redding, 54, was killed during a robbery at the store July 10. Lawrence Robert Bongiovanni, 20, stabbed Redding multiple times before stealing scratch-off lottery tickets, according to the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office. Jimmy Walker, a regular customer at the store at Bloomingdale Avenue and Providence Road, found Redding bleeding profusely in an aisle at 1:30 a.m. After rushing outside to tell another customer to call 911, Walker returned to Reddings side using napkins to try to stem the bleeding and encouraging Redding to hold on until paramedics arrived. The young man tried to save him, Cochran said. I would like to thank him personally for what he did. Redding had been working at the store for 18 months but never worried about his safety, Cochran said. He preferred the night shift because he had worked for Tampa Bay Steel for at least 10 years on the night shift and just got used to it. The brutal attack at the 7-11 was a shock to many in the area, which borders Winthrop Town Centre and several quiet residential neighborhoods. Its a very nice area, Cochran said. I was never concerned because he told Lawrence Robert Bongiovanni, 20, stabbed Redding multiple times before stealing scratchoff lottery tickets. HILLSBOROUGhH COUNTY ShSHERIFFS O OFFIcCE PhHOTOContinued on page 27% Continued on page 22% At area marinas, its just like old times only betterKevin Lefler wondered about death, sold his Tampa plumbing business and retired. Today he is finding new life with a new business operating the marinas at Little Harbor. His focus is entirely on the boaters.MITchCH T TRAPhHAGEN PhPHOTOSKevin Lefler on the floating docks at the Little Harbor Marina, one of two resort marinas that his company is now running. He isnt a developer, nor does he work for one. A lifelong boater, his job is to run the marinas. By %  MitchITCH TraphagenRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netIn a place like Florida where change comes in the waves of the thousands of people who move here, how things were a decade ago is little more than ancient history. A decade ago, Ruskin was a boating community and the heart of that community was in three somewhat rundown marinas in an area collectively known as Bahia Beach. It was a peaceful yet thriving place for boaters, and nonboaters often walked the docks just taking in the vibe. It was a good place. When a development corporation purchased the marinas from the families who owned them, things changed, as would be expected. The developers didnt appear to have much interest in running marinas at the time, their focus was well, that is not entirely clear as their efforts to develop the area ran smack dab into the enormous burst of the housing bubble. For a long time, distant banks have owned the property and a certain stagnant peace again fell over the area. More and more, tourists came and enjoyed themselves with no knowledge of the status or history of the place. A new company has since purchased much of the property and today things are changing again. History, in fact, may be repeating itself in a good, albeit different, way. Ruskin could again become a boating community and what is now known as Little Harbor, along with nearby Shell Point Marina, could again become the pulse of it and of the surrounding communities. Kevin Lefler has been around boats since he was a teenager, working and saving money to buy his first boat at the age of 16. He started a plumbing company and through hard work and by relentlessly putting his customers first, he built it into a success, providing a good life for him and his wife Peggy. And then one day, he thought about death. One day I wondered what would happen if I die? My wife would own a plumbing company and what was she going to do with that? The value of it would drop, Lefler said. It was a reputable plumbing company so I was able to sell it and invest the money. The problem is that I didnt die. When a group of investors bought much of the Little Harbor property, including the marina formerly known as Bahia Del Sol, now named the Village Marina, they began asking around for someone to help them figure out just what it was they had. Leflers name came up and shortly thereafter, he was asked to manage the marina. Several months later, the investors bought the Little Harbor Marina, formerly known as the Bahia Beach Marina. At that point, they asked Lefler if he would consider taking both marinas on as his own business. I dont work for them anymore, he said. It is my business running these marinas. I get all of the money but I pay all of the bills, and I make a lease payment. Anything that needs to be done, any improvements that need to be made, that is all through my business and my money, but I dont have to wait around for approval. During the years of bank ownership, little investment was made in the To better serve his customers, Lefler, along with his wife Peggy, recently opened the Village Market near the tennis courts on the main resort. The SouthShore Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new addition to his marinas.

No more standing in line for food baskets. No more hand-outs for free. So how then can it still be called a mission? Weve found that people who have a vested interest in things are much happier, learn more, and get more out of what we have to offer, said Good Samaritans Executive Director Bill Cruz. Weve started offering a unique type of educational opportunity for everyone who comes to us. Our adult education classes are a healthy balance of information, Christian discipleship, prayer and relationship building. Class attendance is used as an exchange for tangible goods that lift people eventually out of situations where they continuously need assistance. Classes are mainly held on Tuesdays during the day and Thursdays in the evening so that no matter what type of work hours a person has, they can participate, he said. There are a few things given on other days and times as well. We knew people wouldnt want to study nutrition but they might take a cooking class, so we call it that, he explained. This class teaches how to feed a family in a healthy way, which will help lower the high statistics of preventable deaths from outof-control diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, and many others. But preparing and eating healthy food is far from all being taught at Good Samaritan. There have been classes on banking and finance and how to stay out of debt, keep a better house and learn a trade. From sewing to basic auto maintenance, classes are being offered to people who come to the mission for help. In return for each class taken, a coin is given that can be used in the missions new store. Instead of just being handed a bag of food or clothing, they get to go into our store and pick from shelves using the coins. Each coin gives them the right to fill one bag with things they choose. Cruz said the concept is that if someone puts time and effort into something, they will appreciate it more, and theyll learn something from the experience that helps lift them to a better way of living both in the short and long run. We talk about marriage and parenting, he said. So if both parents come to two classes lets say, on a Thursday night, they could each get two coins, equaling four bags from our store. The mission is seeking people from the community to teach things in all ranges from painting and gardening to prayer and crafts, songs, finance techniques, or baking your favorite dish. Its easy. If you have a specialty, you just have to fill 20 minutes of time. The first few minutes of each class is really a getting to know each other time, he said. Cruz, who is both a minister and a licensed therapist, his wife Theresa and their staff get a special thrill when one of the students first realizes he or she has something they can teach. Its a real ah-ha moment, when somebody realizes they have something they can give back. It can be as simple a thing as showing someone else how to bake a special recipe, he said. Because people often bring their families to classes directly from their jobs, food is provided before evening classes start. The Sams Club store on Big Bend Road has developed a special relationship with the mission and gives them whatever would ordinarily be thrown away because of things like damage to the box or container, he said. Little Caesars in Sun City Center provides pizzas. Goodson Farms has provided cooler space. Cadence Bank gave talks on avoiding credit card debt. Its all about community, Cruz explained. Learning from each other, and being contributing members of the community. Good Samaritan can use whatever is offered, whenever it is made available, he said. There was a local fishing tournament on Fathers Day, he said. Right in the middle of the day I got a phone call asking if we could use fresh fish. The fish were delivered by local fishermen who had participated in the tournament. They were all gutted and cleaned. Changes have been in the works since 2009 when Cruz talked with Falcon Towing in Wimauma sent instructors to teach women at the mission about basic auto maintenance.the Florida Department of Health about changing the items that went in food baskets. I knew we had to do something to help people towards a healthier diet when we saw the figures, he said. But changes take time, and educating the people is a large part of that. Churches and civic groups can choose from lists of things that are repetitively needed and hold internal drives for things like baby items, disposable diapers, hygiene and housecleaning items as well as for food. For example, one group may want to have a childs underwear day, while another collects toothbrushes. Those who want to find out more about the mission may visit www.gsmission.org or make an appointment for a tour by calling (813) 634-7136. It is located at 14920 Balm-Wimauma Rd. in Wimauma.Leaders at Good Samaritan Mission in Wimauma have changed their give-aways to earned clothing and food that can be obtained by attending classes and then chosen by participants instead of having to take whatever is in the bag theyre handed.

Working pretty much unnoticed behind the scenes, Anthonys company orders title searches, coordinates necessary inspections, handles escrow, prepares closing documents and holds the closing a formal meeting at which title is passed from seller to buyer. When everythings in order, its a smooth transition, setting the stage for a new life for both buyer and seller; when its not, everyones plans can be disrupted, perhaps even for a long time. South Bay Title is known for trouble-free closings. We care about what we do and like to think were more professional, them to understand the process and all of the papers theyre being asked to sign. The sellers real estate agent usually chooses who to use for services like South Bay Titles, but buyers or sellers potentially have a say in the matter, which is usually spelled out in the sales contract. Buyers or sellers who want to use our services, should communicate with their real estate professional as the contract is being drawn up, said Anthony, who gets business primarily from word of mouth. For a trouble-free closing, tell your real estate professional youd like South Bay Title to handle your closing.

JULY 18, 2013 OBSERVER NEWS 5 An all-time favorite is Cruiser of the MonthMick Wright had done a fair bit of work on a pals 1934 Ford in his Ruskin shop, and admired it greatly.

An obvious benefit of the art is raising awareness about and generating empathy for special landscapes and species. But too much love can be a bad thing if landscapes are trampled and wildlife is frightened all in the name of leaving only footprints. The use of photography as a conservation tool dates back as far as photography itself. William Henry Jacksons photos from his travels with the Hayden Expedition of the 1860s to survey the American West helped conNational Park in 1872 and as such played a role in the birth of the worldwide movement to set aside special places as national parks. Ansel Adams carried this torch for ward a century later, opening up millions of viewers eyes to the splendor of many an iconic western landscape. And more recently wildlife photographers have gotten up close and per sonal to wild animals large and small so the rest of us can appreciate their beauty out of harms way. But some say there is a dark side to all this exposure of the wild and the natural. In a provocative essay in the Fall 1997 issue of DoubleTake magazine, activist and author Bill McKibben argued that the world has enough wildlife photography and that continuing to invade the lives of animal subjects given the vast oversupply of images already available is counterproductive to the goals of preserving biodiversity. He also decried the idealized view of the world that wildlife photography portrays. How can there really be a shortage of whooping cranes when youve seen a thousand images of them seen ten times more images than there are actually whooping cranes left in the wild? he asked. But today when the average vacationer with a $500 high-resolution digital SLR may just want to capture his own version of that iconic photo he has seen so many times in magazines, it might be folly to hope people wont love a spot or a species to death. What the nature photographers of the world, amateurs and pros alike, can agree on is that they want their subject matter to live on. Being respectful of landscapes and wildlife in the quest to get the shot is all thats needed to keep nature photography from becoming a scourge on the environment.

6 JULY 18, 2013When I started writing a column like this over 30 years ago, it was a way for me to help reinforce in my own mind the principles of positive attitude and maybe do some good for others who wanted to walk on the sunny side of the street. After reading these columns for a number of years, a friend sent me the clippings of my first 60 columns stapled together and said, Publish these in a book. I did, and it is entitled Within Your Reach; that book has sold over 25,000 copies in print. Companies like British Petroleum, Reynolds and Reynolds, and Amway have provided it as a positive gift to their customers and/or employees. An Amway couple, Ken and Sally Anderson, have given hundreds of copies away to anyone they thought could use a lift. The following letter to me is from someone who benefited from their kindness.Dear Bill: About two months ago, Ken and Sally Anderson gave me a copy of your book Within Your Reach. We were having lunch and I was trying to sort out my day and make decisions about my life. I was grateful for the book, put it in my briefcase, and drove to my next stop, the Collin County Juvenile Detention Center. The CCJDC is home for youths who are serving 180day sentences for violations of law and/or probation. The program my peers and I work in By William Hodges is under a grant from the Texas Commission on Alcohol and Drug Abuse. Three of us provide 20 hours of chemical dependency education, individual and family therapy, and parenting education. The youth with whom we work are largely uncaring and unmotivated most of the time. Something changed that day, however. First was the warmth and friendship I received from Ken and Sally. The second was my wanting to share the report of having lunch with my friends and their gift with the young people. They immediately asked what the book was about. I opened it and began to read aloud. I opened to The Seed and read. The room was quiet when I finished, and then I heard a sniff, then more. Two of the youth and one of the detention officers were very affected by the reading. George, one of the least cooperative and most quiet, asked if he could read a selection. I handed him the book and he read in a slow, halting manner. No one said a word until he was finished. George just stared at the floor. In a few moments, he asked the group what the reading had meant to them. Everyone responded positively and appropriately. By the end of the three-hour session, all who wanted to had read from the book. All had participated, and all said it was the best group they ever had. I was asked if I would bring the book back. The miracles that have occurred since I received this book have been astonishing. I am not sure what all my miracles have been, but I know that others have been positively affected by my presence and your book. In others, and other settings, I have seen leaps in personal growth that have remained long after a reading. George, for instance, was released two weeks later and calls me once a week to tell me how much better his life is without using or selling drugs. His life is still hard, but he lives in the present, no longer compares himself to others, and starts each day with a prayer of thanksgiving. There are lots more stories. This one was the first and most impactful to me. I give my loving thanks to Ken and Sally. I give thanks that they found you and your book. Sincerely, James T. Wayland, Ph.D.James letter meant a lot to me; it is an example of how infusions of positive attitude can do more than a profusion of punishments. It is people like James, Ken and Sally who light candles rather than curse the darkness. They make a better world for all of us. Within Your Reach is now available in e-book format at www.Amazon.com.

JULY 18, 2013 7 By %  KEVIN BRADY kevin@observernews.netA Brandon company has helped rescue five horses that otherwise might have been euthanized. A $1,900 donation from Talk Fusion, a global video communication company headquartered on Kingsway Road, to Florida Dog & Animal Rescue helped the organization to give five horses Dreamer, Cyrus, Expressions, Scarr and Brass Indian the transportation, food and care they needed to survive. Talk Fusion founder Bob Reina made the donation after he heard the animals would be sent to the slaughterhouse if no one stepped forward to take on the expense and responsibility of ownership of the horses. Talk Fusion is proud to have been able to help these graceful, intelligent creatures find a safe and loving home, Reina said. It is all part of the companys commitment to speaking for those who cannot speak for themselves, continued Allison Roberts, Talk Fusion VP of Training & Development. Based in St. Petersburg, FDARescue provides unwanted, neglected and abused dogs and horses with love, food, shelter and appropriate medical attention. The nonprofits rescues usually come from owners, sheriffs departments and animal control. The organization attempts to find loving, adoptive homes for each of their rescues. The donation saved the horses from a slaughterhouse so we are extremely grateful to Bob and his company, said Carmine Brower, who founded FDARescue in April. Bob also gave us $3,500 earlier this year, which all went Local company helps rescue horses from slaughterhouseA $1,900 donation from Brandons Talk Fusion helped rescue these horses from the slaughterhouse.FLORIDA DDOG & A ANIMAL RRESCUE PHOOTO Oto the care of one dog that needed care at a vet. Brower, a St. Pete resident, grew up around animals with as many as 13 foster dogs in her home at one time. Her mom started a pet rescue organization in 1982 that cared for local animals from all over Tampa Bay until her death in 1989. A growing young family meant her daughter couldnt pick up the reins until this year. We are really looking for donations because everything is now coming out of our pockets, said Brower, who wrote a check for $200 last week for the care of one dog. We are looking to buy a property in the Bay area but it will take some money. For now, Brower is sheltering three dogs at her home while her friend Krista Morio has two dogs and seven horses at her Brandon home. Kate Carr, another member of the group, has two foster dogs at her Clearwater home. Earlier this year, the Talk Fusion donated $76,000 to the Florida Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals. We were sincerely moved by the generosity of these charitable contributions, said Sean Hawkins, the SPCAs Florida CEO, who said the donation will help the groups plan to enhance its existing trap, neuter and release program to help control the areas feral cat population. The money is being used to buy a new feral cat transport van and build a feral cat patio at the SPCAs headquarters in Tampa. The associates and corporate team at Talk Fusion are proud of their commitment to giving back, Reina said. The outpouring of support in raising such a substantial amount in such a short time serves as inspiring proof of Talk Fusions dedication to helping others. Founded in 2007, Talk Fusion provides personal and business video communication products marketed in more than 100 countries. The company has also donated to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, Brandon area youth baseball as well as programs for at-risk youth.

Dear Savvy Senior, Can you write a column alerting seniors to the dangers of summertime heat? I manage a number of urgent care clinics, and last summer we had more than 200 cases of heat-related illnesses, most of who were seniors. I would like to reduce that this year. Concerned Citizenr Dear Concerned, I certainly can. Most people dont realize that extreme summer heat causes thousands of heat-related illnesses in the U.S. each year, and kills more people than hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, floods and earthquakes combined, and seniors are among the most vulnerable. The reasons behind this are because of the bodys ability to regulate temperature through blood circulation and sweat glands tends to decline with age. Bodies of older adults also contain far less water than a younger person, and older brains dont recognize thirst as easily, making them more likely to get dehydrated. In addition, many seniors have certain health problems that can increase their risk of hyperthermia (when the body overheats). These include: gestive heart failure, diabetes and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease or COPD. around. lems with thinking skills. Medications that some seniors take, like diuretics and other high blood pressure drugs, can also cause dehydration or affect the ability of their heart, blood vessels or sweat glands to respond to the heat. Signs of Danger heat-related illness. The signs to watch for include a body temperature above 103 degrees Fahrenheit, a rapid pulse rate, throbbing headache, dizziness, nausea, confusion, and hot, dry skin with the absence of sweating. If you, or someone you know, is experiencing these symptoms, call 911 immediately because heat stroke is a medical emergency. can develop after several days of exposure to high temperatures. The warning signs are heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, tiredness, weakness, fainting, dizziness, headache, and nausea or vomiting. What to Do If you think you may be suffering from a heat-related condition, cool yourself down by going indoors into air conditioning, remove or loosen any tight-fitting or heavy clothing, drink plenty of water (but avoid alcohol and caffeine), take a cool bath or shower, or apply cold water, ice packs or cold compresses to your skin. And when you do go out in the heat, be sure to dress in lightweight, light-colored, loose-fitting clothing, avoid extended periods of sun exposure and drink plenty of water even if you dont feel thirsty. Seniors who live without air conditioning should go to public places that have it like shopping malls, senior centers or public libraries. Your local health department can also refer you to an air-conditioned shelter in your area. For those who cant afford to run their air conditioning at home, theres the federal Low-Income ity companies and charitable organizations that may be able to help you with your utility costs. To find out about the programs available to you, along with their eligibility requirements and how to apply, call Referral project at 866-674-6327 or visit energynear.org.

Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of The Savvy Senior book.Summertime Heat Poses Special Risks to Seniors THE SAVVY SENIORBy Jim Miller Meredeth Rowe, professor of nursing at USF, explains how the integrated nighttime monitoring system she helped develop tracks the bed occupancy and movement patterns around the house of a loved one with dementia.USF Nursing investigates whether improving sleep reduces heart disease risk in caregiversThe University of South Florida College of Nursing is conducting research to improve sleep in those caring for people with dementia and Alzheimers disease, with the aim of determining if better sleep affects heart health. The $1.9-million, four-year study funded by National Institute on Aging, Improving Dementia Caregiver Sleep Biomarkers, is led by USF Coldowed Chair Meredeth Rowe, RN, PhD, FGSA, FAAN. Fifteen million Americans provided an estimated 17.5 billion hours of unpaid care to people with Alzheimers disease and other dementias in 2012, according to the Alzheimers Association. Recent studies indicate that caregivers, unpaid family members or friends who assist people with Alzheimers with daily activities, may experience sleep loss from the constant demands of caregiving. According to a 2006 Institute of Medicine report, the cumulative effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of adverse health consequences including increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke. The primary focus of Dr. Rowes research is finding an effective and easy-to-use treatment that can improve sleep in Alzheimers caregivers to increase their overall health and reduce the nursing home placement of people with dementia. In the latest research, Dr. Rowe is evaluating whether a combined intervention using CareAlert and cognitive-behavioral therapy for insomnia improves sleep in individuals who care for people with dementia and Alzheimers who wake up at night. The study, conducted in the USF College of Nursing Caregiving Laboratory, will include as many as 100 participants. All will receive the CareAlert device and one of two sleep therapies assigned at random.

Since we collect sound with our ears and process the sound in our brain, over time and without hearing assistance, we can lose the ability to understand the spoken word. This documented process is called auditory deprivation. According to Teri James Bellis, PhD, in her landmark book on Auditory Processing Disorder, When the Brain Cant Hear, As sound travels through an imperfect auditory pathway, words spoken to the aficted listener may become jumbled, distorting original meaning and rendering the words unintelligible. When you think about a conversation with all the sounds, the inections and tempo changes, it makes communication extremely complicated. When a hearing loss has been present and untreated, the ability to follow the conversation can become extremely difcult. Without receiving the appropriate stimuli, the brain stops processing sounds like background noise and can no longer lter speech clearly. You may answer a question incorrectly, withdraw, smile and pretend you understood the conversation. This can be particularly troublesome when you are visiting the doctor, and important information is being relayed. In some cases, people have been misdiagnosed with Alzheimers disease because they were unable to follow the conversation. According to world renowned otolaryngologist, Dr. John Shea Jr., of the famed Shea Ear Clinic, If a person is hard of hearing and they dont get amplication, they are not hearing and they lose the ability to understand. Once familiar sounds, like the hum of a refrigerator, slowly fade and become unrecognizable noise competing with spoken words. Dr. Shea went on to say, When presented with amplication, or hearing aids, speech understanding becomes clearer. However, it is a continual process of improvement. Stimulating the brain with sound may help to overcome the auditory deprivation process, and getting help early is critical to a long term success. Now, the goal is to do everything we can to maintain the speech recognition you have. You need to wear the best hearing aids you can afford, full time in both ears to hear correctly. Hearing aids solve the problems people have with communication, and they help to preserve and protect the brains ability to recognize speech. Hearing loss ranks number three behind hypertension and arthritis. Often called the invisible disability, hearing loss happens slowly over time and may go unnoticed for years. According to an article in Post Graduate Medicine, by Drs. Shohet and Bent, Loss of hearing is a national health problem with signicant physical and psychological repercussions. Although there is no cure for certain forms of hearing loss, many patients can be helped, especially when the problem is recognized early. Wearing amplication (hearing aids) has been proven to help preserve the remaining hearing and speech clarity. If you think you may have hearing loss, the most important rst step is to have your hearing tested. Your results will identify which frequencies or pitches you do or do not hear and, if you do have a hearing loss, getting help has never been easier and with todays advanced technology you will get clear, crisp, more natural sound.

She is a cat comfortable in her own fur, she loves her canine siblings and her family. We havent yet lost hope.By Mitch Traphagenmitch@observernews.net Observations:Silver liningsIf there can be a silver lining to missing a much-loved pet it is finding out just how much so many people care about things beyond their own personal worlds. My cat, Emma, is still missing and has been for going on two weeks now. She is not an outdoor cat and has never before spent a night outside alone. In multiple searches through our neighborhood and beyond, we have found no trace of her. It is as if she disappeared into thin air. At our front door we installed an EmmaCam with night vision that emails us when it detects motion, and we have put up Lost Cat fliers and posted information online, in addition to my mentioning her last week in this column. Numerous friends reposted her information on Facebook, businesses allowed us to put up her flier and over the weekend, someone from a few streets over called us after seeing the flier and a cat that looked a little like Emma. He then stayed with the cat as we quickly drove over to meet him. It wasnt Emma but we had met a good soul in that process. He didnt have to do that for people and a cat he didnt know, but he did and we are grateful. We are also very grateful for the emails and the prayers youve sent. That does matter, and it does help. The area from Riverview to Ruskin is well represented on the Facebook page entitled Lost and Found Pets of Hillsborough County (www.facebook.com/ Lostandfoundpetsofhillsboroughcounty). Emmas photo was on that page and someone contacted us saying they had seen a similar cat at Hillsborough County Animal Services. Michelles office is not far from that facility on Falkenburg Road and she has been going there daily. She had seen that cat, it was a male, and knew it wasnt Emma. After receiving the message, however, we decided to go up to check again anyway. We walked through the aisles of cages containing lost cats, calling out for Emma. Paws and noses stuck through the bars with lots of meows, as if saying, Im Emma Kitty! Im Emma Kitty! Take me home! The staff at Animal Services had named the cat Edison, and he did look a little like Emma, but he had a nasty-looking, quarter-sized chunk of fur and skin missing from his left front leg. As I talked to him, it was clear he didnt feel very well. On Sunday, we went back again after seeing a listing for another cat that had just been picked up. Again, it wasnt Emma, and I went back to visit with Edison. This time, he reached his little paw through the bars and clasped my finger, a cat way of holding hands. He was close enough that I was able to reach through and scratch his head. He began to purr. Edisons last day on Earth was Monday. His time had run out. Over the weekend, the parking lot at Animal Services was full people were there, like us, looking for their own pets or were there looking to adopt a pet. On Sunday evening, Michelle and I stood in the rain talking about whether or not we should take Edison home with us. We werent there looking for just any cat, we were looking for our cat. And, above all, we could not possibly save them all. Reluctantly, we left without him, knowing that an older, injured cat would be an unlikely candidate for adoption in the few hours he had remaining. Animal Services tends to get a bad rap but our experience with them has been very positive. We have met people who truly care about animals, doing a difficult job the best they can with a very limited budget. The facility is open seven days a week until 7 p.m., and all weekend, staff and volunteers were out front with adoptable dogs, working to find homes for them. It is an overwhelming job approximately 20,000 animals go through that facility each year and most, like Edison, run out of time. If the staff could change that, they would. They have no choice but to count on us to change it, through adoptions and through spaying and neutering pets. If you have room in your heart, home and wallet for a furry little friend, please consider making the trip up there, or to C.A.R.E., or to any number of shelters. In Ruskin, Robin Roberts is in the process of forming a nonprofit named Critter Mama Rescue (www.facebook.com/CritterMamaRescue), and is actively saving and caring for cast-off dogs. She would be happy for any help you %

On Sunday night, we were told that on an animals last day in the shelter, they begin euthanizing at 5:30 a.m. I went to bed that night missing Emma and worrying about Edison. We held paws; I made him happy enough to purr, I thought to myself as a consolation. On Monday morning, just after 5:30 a.m., Michelle could see the toll everything was taking on me. A good friend once said that we have reached the age when life stopped giving and had begun taking. I felt that distinctly on Monday morning. Emma, Edison, health concerns with family and friends, and so much more were adding up. Missing Emma has left a hole in our hearts that nothing else can fill, and we wont stop looking for her. The silver lining in the efforts made by friends and strangers to help find her, and from your thoughts, prayers and emails, have made the difference between a completely bleak day and one that is at least marginally bearable. Thank you for that. Michelle left for work that morning and then called a bit after 8 a.m. There are a lot of qualities that other people have that we wish we had, she said. You know, like common sense. She was calling from Animal Services. For so long Ive whined and moaned about this and that, looking for a purpose in an increasingly insane world. We cant save them all, but maybe we can save one. Maybe that is my purpose. Its as good as any. Edison was still there. They opened his cage for Michelle and he laid his little head down in her hand. He was skin and bones. Before long, the adoption was done and we decided to rename him Ernie. The veterinarian at Animal Services had to anesthetize him to take care of some of his medical needs before we could take him home. An hour later, she called with sadness in her voice to say that Ernie had two extremely rare and fatal illnesses that infect a very small percentage of cats. He was still under anesthesia and she thought it best to euthanize him while he was asleep. We wanted a miracle but none was forthcoming. Most parents of children can take a certain, unspoken comfort in knowing that their children will outlive them. Pet owners do not have that luxury. The best we can do is find one or three and enjoy their lives, as they enjoy ours, for the time we have together, making it so their lifetime of happiness outweighs the sadness of their loss. Ernie died on Monday, not as a castoff animal but as one who had been adopted. Ernie had a loving family and had people who shed tears for him. Despite a broken heart, I am happy that I met him and that you now know of him, too. He was loved and he doesnt hurt anymore. We do hurt, of course. But I am certain of one thing: Emma would have loved Ernie, too. I so hope we get the chance to tell her about him. Sometimes you have to find the silver linings wherever you can.Observations Choppy waters and a week of rain hasnt been good for anglers this week. Those watching the weather and fishing only in the mornings had a favorable week of catches. There were reports of tarpon everywhere in our waters jumping and on the run. This popular game fish is caught as a trophy only. It is almost always photographed and released. It has no food value. Its average weight is 68 pounds. It can reach a weight of 350 pounds and length of 8 feet. This is one of the worlds greatest game fishes caught on the open waters of the gulf and ocean backwaters and the bays, inlets, and the deep waters of the harbors and the great ports of the Gulf Coast. Tarpon is caught with a wide variety of baits and a wide variety Fish Tales: Tarpon, star of Florida game fish tournamentsof methods. In some areas it is best to troll with a live crab, but in other areas anglers cast with live pin fish. Some anglers will tell you a large dead fish with a large hook, will get a tarpon every time. No matter how you hook them the fight is the same. They leap and jump, like an outraged demon from the deep. This fish is a scavanger and its flesh smells as bad as the food it eats. Only a starving ship-wreck sailor would eat them. The photo you take can be used for your taxidermist to make a trophy of your catch. You also need a special decal on your license before catching a tarpon. Catfish by the numbers are in all waterways. It seems the more it rains the more catfish surface Some anglers fished all morning long and caught nothing but catfish. It was fun and the anglers had a work-out, but they brought no fish home. All were caught and released. The usual catch of sheepshead from piers and land were caught this week. Flounder surfaced to eat and were caught on high and low tides. Reports came in that king fish or mackerel are jumping across the water. Morning fishing in the lakes, and upper rivers yielded some panfish, fresh water cats, and bass this week. This has been a good week to clean out your boat, go through your bait box, and if you trailer, give it a good check. Im sorry to say I lost my fishing partner of 55 years my husband Matt passed away last week.NEED TO ADVERTISE? Call....

GLISSON, ATTORNEY-AT-LAW The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be based solely on advertisement. Before you decide, ask us to send you FREE written information about our qualifications and experience. A teacher was encouraging his class to be kind and think of the needs of the people around them. Remember, kids, you were put here to help others. But, protested one of the students, what were the others put here for? Where would we be if no one helped us? What if no one taught us to read or write or do arithmetic? Sometimes we forget to think about all of the help that others have given us and focus only on ourselves. It is hard to imagine where we would be if no one had ever helped us. So, if we have been helped, should we not also do the same for others? We need to have a goal that reminds us to help everyone we can. As we seek to help others, God will help us. May we never forget that every time we help pull someone uphill, we will find ourselves getting closer to the top. Just for today, rather than pointing a finger at someone, hold out a helping hand.

Dr. Peter Stiller. The Installation Service for Pastor David Allman was held June 23 during the Sunday morning service, followed by a reception in Buhr Hall. A native of Toledo, Ohio, Pastor Allman served churches in Central Ohio, Northeast Ohio and Michigan prior to coming to Florida. For the past three years, he served as Chaplain to Suncoast Hospice in Pinellas County. He is a graduate of Capital University and Trinity Seminary, both in Columbus, Ohio. Pastor Allman and his wife Candy have two children, Heather, who lives in Miami, and Noah, who is 12 years old. The Allman family resides in Riverview. From left are William Adkins, council president; Connie Schmucker, assistant to the Bishop of Synod; Pastor David Allman; and Pastor Derek Hoven, dean of the Conference. The United Methodist Church of Sun City Center welcomes Chicago-based Captivating Keyboards on Wednesday, July 24 at 6:30 p.m. in the church sanctuary. Captivating Keyboards is a virtuoso keyboard duo comprised of Alan Tripp and Professional keyboard duo to perform at United Methodist ChurchScott Griffin, recent graduates of the Moody Bible Institute where they began to perform together. These talented young men bring lots of fun and a bit of slapstick to their family-friendly concerts, which feature both two-piano music as well as organ/piano duets. In fact, the church is bringing them in on a Wednesday evening so that its Kidz Club children can be a part of the audience. Scott and Alan began playing duo concerts together back in 2007, and in the following years they were invited to perform at the Instituto de Bellas Artes of Chihuahua, Mexico, Bill Gaithers Fall Family Festival in Indiana, the Maranatha Bible Conference in Michigan, both Word of Life campuses in New York and Florida, and the Crystal Cathedral in California, in addition to many concerts in the Chicago area where they currently reside. In 2013 they began pursuing concerts full-time performing as Captivating Keyboards under their new nonprofit Get Out Of Your Boat Ministries. They enjoy blessing their audiences with unique musical arrangements, creatively combined into entertaining presentations. A donation of $5 is requested at the door on the evening of the concert. The church is located at 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West in Sun City Center. For more information, contact Jeff Jordan, Director of Worship Arts, at 813-634-2539.

22 OBSERVER NEWS JULY 18, 2013 marinas and, as a result, Lefler is now playing an expensive form of catch-up in making improvements.Luckily I dont need a paycheck right now so I can put everything back into the property, he said. Kevin Lefler is the rare kind of person that you just instinctively feel you can trust. If he says he is going to do something, it will be done. If you need his help, he will be there. One of the things at my plumbing company was that no is not in my vocabulary, he said. I cant stand that word. If a boater wants something, it has to be very much out of reason for me to say no. He has invested thousands in rebuilding bait tanks that now actually work. There is a larger forklift carefully picking up boats for high and dry storage along with a rebuilt ramp that will keep the forklift from going into the water. There are new channel markers, making it easier to navigate the shallows and shoals. He has brought in the Freedom Boat Club to provide those who love the water with opportunities to enjoy it without the work and expense of boat ownership. Its a good deal, he said. You join the club and pay a flat monthly fee and that entitles you to go to any Freedom Boat Club for unlimited use of the boats. You dont have to worry about insurance, maintaining it; you dont have to clean it. You cant possibly own a boat for what the monthly fee is. The organization is very conscientious and they are doing well. The bottom line is that Lefler, himself a lifelong boater, is working hard and investing his time and money to make Ruskin and Little Harbor a center for boating again. He is working hard to win customers over, one at a time, if necessary. His focus is entirely on boaters and the marinas. I would like to see this become the marina of choice not just for those living here but for transients as well, he continued. We are making changes here that are going to make it better for the boaters. I would like to see a clubhouse built, somewhere that the boaters can get together and maybe have a barbecue. I love transients and we are starting to see more of them and some boating clubs coming here. Were happy to be here. We want everyone to know that we want them to be here. I dont care if you are running a marina, a hotdog stand or a construction company, at the end of the day, the customer has to feel like they got something of value. And thats what I work to do, give my customers value so they keep coming back. People are coming back and in some ways history is repeating itself. We want the people at this resort to have fun, that is the main thing, he said. We want them to enjoy the pool, we want them to enjoy the restaurants, we want them to not have to go down the street if they want to pick up a sixpack of Coke or a carton of milk. We want to provide everything they need so they can stay here and just enjoy themselves. With the latter concept in mind, Lefler recently opened the Village Market near the tennis courts at the resort. The store has everything from ice-cold beer, frozen pizzas, snacks and ice cream to hats and t-shirts, along with other sundries and souvenirs. The SouthShore Chamber of Commerce has scheduled a ribbon cutting to celebrate the new store. The Village Market is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. This property is unlike anything else in Hillsborough County, he said. No one else has what we have on this side of the bay. We have the hotel, the townhomes, we have floating docks and fixed docks, we have the high and dry. Now that the banks are out of the picture, things are going to go well here. We are always looking for ways to make the resort better. We want all of this to be a good resort; for the boaters, for the guests and for the people who live here. Lefler is also offering boat washing services, fishing pole rentals and golf cart rentals, all for nominal fees that barely cover expenses. They are not intended to be moneymakers, they are services offered to make things better for his customers. There are a lot of folks in South County that may have heard about Bahia Beach a long time ago but they havent been down to see what weve done, Lefler said. Wed like all of the people in South County to come visit our marinas, our restaurants, the beach, just come to see what weve got. A marina is by default a place where people are supposed to enjoy themselves and their love of the water that the Tampa Bay area is blessed with. Lefler knows that his 10 partand full-time employees cannot be an exception to that. I want my employees to have a good time. I want them smiling and joking, he said. Still, today Lefler is a busy guy for someone who supposedly retired a few years ago. So is his wife Peggy, who can often be found managing the Village Market. Do I work myself to death? Absolutely not, he said. Am I here seven days a week? Yes, but they are my hours. I have the flexibility to go out to meet the boaters. I love doing that. I can walk around finding things that need to be done. To me, its not a job, its fun. If it wasnt, I wouldnt be doing it. Lefler works to promote the success of the larger resort, but his business is focused solely in making his marinas the best they can be. He is not an absentee owner, he is a hands-on, decisionmaking manager with an intense focus on making his customers, the boaters who visit or stay at his marinas, as happy as possible. If somebody wants something, within reason, the answer will be yes, he said with all sincerity. And with that, he hopped into a golf cart, taking off to talk to some boaters, or perhaps, to find something that needs to be fixed. From the perspective of a longtime boater, it seemed like old times. For information about The Marinas at Little Harbor, call 813645-2288 or visit their website at www.thelittleharbormarina.com.MarinasContinued from page 1% MITCH TRAPHAGEN PHOTOA lot of people call boat storage buildings High and Dry and they may be high, but they arent necessarily dry, Lefler said. Our high and dry has a full roof and boats stay dry. Lefler has the roof repair bills to prove it.

Cochran also thanked friends and neighbors for their concern and expressions of sympathy. Everyone has shown concern. He was very well liked. Redding, who lived next door to his mother on Spivey Road in Gibsonton, enjoyed talking to people and photography, Cochran said. He was a wonderful person. No one had a bad thing to say about him. He was a really nice person, said Gertrude Nagle, who lives opposite the Cochran family. I would see him work in the yard and leaving for work every night. The alleged killer was arrested 18 hours after the attack walking along a roadway in Charlotte County. Bongiovanni, 20, from Brandon, was booked on first degree murder charges. Detectives in the area were on the lookout for Bongiovanni and two other men, Russell Travis Beasley, 24, and Brandan Garrett Green, 22, after lottery tickets stolen during the robbery were cashed in the area. Green and Beasley were picked up in Sarasota County at around the same time. They have since been released. Based on video surveillance, detectives were able to identify two of the suspects by name within hours of Reddings death. Ive seen a lot of stuff but this rates among the most brutal I have seen, said Sheriff David Gee, who called the robbery a premeditated attack. He stalked the clerk, hid and waited for him to be alone. This does not appear to be a robbery gone bad; Bongiovanni went in with the intent to attack the clerk, Gee said. Arrest records show Bongiovanni, who has used several aliases, was first arrested in 2009 at age 17 on a charge of aggravated battery causing great bodily harm. He was arrested again one year later on a felony battery charge and returned to jail in 2011 on an aggravated battery charge. 7-11 Samaritan% The suspect in the fatal stabbing of Kenneth Lee Redding is seen on surveillance video wearing a blue and black hoodie.HILLSBOROUGhH COUNTY ShSHERIFFS O OFFIcCE Silent auction, Taste of Tampa BayChampions for Children will host its 5th Annual Christmas in July Silent Auction and Taste of Tampa Bay event Friday, July 19, from 6 to 9 p.m. at 3108 W.
