Mistakes are easy to make when

preparing your plants for winter

* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@obsevernews.net
Sometimes, putting a cover over your plants during cold weather can harm them more
than it helps. Crowding pots the too close together on a porch or garage so they can help
warm each other can also do damage.
If you do it wrong, that is.
"Many people think they can put plastic right on top of their plants and protect them,"
said Nicole Pinson from the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program of the Hillsbor-
ough County Extension Service. "But if the plastic is laid right on the plants, touching
them, it can actually conduct the cold right into the plants and kill them."
Using plastic or tarps is all right if they are staked up so they have a "greenhouse effect."
But even then, they need
nto be uncovered as soon
W. :-as daylight comes so the
A" sun can warm them again.
Blankets, cardboard
boxes, anything layered
is better, Pinson added.
Putting a heat bulb under
the blanket being
careful not to touch it so
it doesn't catch fire -
helps, too.
Getting ready now by
collecting boxes and blan-
kets, before any freezes
hit, is a good idea.

Ancient procedure to eliminate

toxins now covered by Medicare

With a referral, under certain circumstances


* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
Not too many years ago, techniques
including acupuncture, and even
chiropractic, weren't approved medical
procedures in the United States, even
though they had been used for centuries in
other countries.
Even after they were well established
in the states, and considered legitimate
treatment by
the American 1
Medical
Association,
most
insurances did
not cover them
for a long time.
In the past *-
50 years,
however, many

been shown to make a big difference in
patient care. A lot of the techniques came
from Eastern medicine, records of which
are well over 3,500 years old.
In the last 10 years, the National
Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.,
has built a large "mind-body" institute
studying the effects of thought, and yes,
even prayer, on physical illness and
healing.
The new study of epigenetics is also
proving that concentration can alter the
state of a gene, and researchers in this
field say this could unlock cures to many
diseases that are now considered terminal.
Licensed massage therapist Connie
Larkin has taken some special training
that you must either be a licensed
massage therapist or a physical therapist
to study, and she's practicing it locally by
appointment at Bain Complete Wellness
centers.

Q: How is bladeless laser cataract surgery different?
A: A computer-controlled laser automates some of
the most challenging steps of cataract surgery for
improved accuracy and precision.
Q: Is the computer in total control of the surgery?
A: No. Your surgeon monitors every step of the laser
portion of your surgery using enhanced imaging and
real-time 3-D video. Then, the surgeon removes the
cataract and places a customized implant in the eye.

With a modern Royal Caribbean cruise ship in the background, SSAmerican Victory,
a World War II era Victory Class ship, one of more than 500 built and one of only three
that remain operational today, prepares to slip the dock lines and set sail in Tampa
Bay for its annual fundraising cruise on Saturday.


American Victory goes to sea


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN

On Saturday, a Tampa Bay area
museum picked up and headed out to sea.
The American Victory Ship, a floating
museum that offers a living view into an
honored past, untied the dock lines and
steamed into Tampa Bay on its annual
fundraising cruise.

Florida Aquarium in Tampa's Channelside
District, is a World War II era armed cargo

such ships built but one of only three that
remain operational today. It is an icon of
American ability and power that won a
world war.
The ship, at 455 feet long, was built
in a mere 55 days and was launched in
California in 1945. It served in World War
II and both the Korean and Vietnam wars.
It was slated to be scrapped in 1996 but
instead was brought to Tampa Bay and
restored as a fully functional museum.
The ship arrived in Tampa under tow in
1999. It remains a rare treasure and is
completely open for public viewing and
exploration.
Saturday's annual fundraising cruise
attracted a broad range of passengers
ranging from veterans to children.
Because the ship is no longer fully
loaded with cargo, nearly half of the large
single propeller is above water, limiting
the speed of the ship, something that
certainly did not detract from the unique
experience of sailing back in time aboard
an American legend.
The SS American Victory is open
for tours and exploration Sundays and
Monday from 12 to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays
through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for
seniors and students and $5 for veterans
and young children. Some museum
members and children under the age of
three are admitted free of charge. Annual
memberships are as low as $35 per year
and include discounts at other Tampa area
museums.

The toxins continue to flow

Larkin, who was already
practicing licensed massage

because her two sisters asked her

"I want to eventually be

getting Medicare to pay for it.
People should check with their
doctor for a referral and with
their insurance company to see if

One Sun City Center patient

Positive Talk: A tale of two men


In a recent conversation I was
discussing the power of attitude with
my friend, Gary Mull. We both pretty
much agreed that it was not so much
what happened to us that counted as
what we did about what
happened to us.
Gary told me the
following story of two
men in his U.S. Air Force
squadron. It seemed they
all graduated from basic
training at about the same By Willic
time and were shipped
to the Philippines where
they were given different jobs. Due
to the needs of the service, one of the
men, even though he was trained as
a clerk, was temporarily detailed to a
communications construction group
and the other man got the office job he
had expected. One night at the enlisted
club, the one detailed to digging holes
and laying cable complained bitterly
about his assignment while the other
young man gloated at his good luck to
be assigned inside. Gary suggested to
both of them that they should make the
best of what they had been given.
Now let's fast forward six months -
same enlisted club, same three airmen.
But there was a difference. Gary said
the cable layer had taken his advice
and made the best of his assignment
by using the time to become physically
fit. The six months of hard labor and
oppressive heat had hardened and
tanned his body to the point that none
of the ladies in the club could take
their eyes off him. The other who was
given what at first appeared to be a
great assignment had put on a number
of pounds from too many coffee
breaks and the ready supply of snacks
in the vending area. Since he saw little
sun, his face was pale and the lack of
exercise had not been kind to the way
his body looked.
Two men two opportunities. One
made good use of his time to prosper
and the other fell back. It was all a
matter of attitude. Author Charles
Swindoll said, 'What challenges
are you looking at today that with


a change in attitude could become
opportunities? The longer I live, the
more I realize the impact of attitude on
life. It is more important than the past,
education, money, circumstances,
failure, success, or what
other people think or say
or do. It is more important
than appearance, giftedness
or skill. It will make or
break a company, a church
or a home. The remarkable
Hodges thing is we have a choice
every day regarding the
attitude we embrace for that
day. We cannot change our past. We
cannot change the fact that people will
act in a certain way. We cannot change
the inevitable. The only thing we can


do is play on the one string we have,
and that is our attitude. I am convinced
that life is 10 percent what happens
to me and 90 percent how I react to
it just as it is with all of us. We are
in charge of our attitude and it's not
really much different than what one
airman said to another, is it?
Look around you. Observe the
attitude of those who appear to have
all the luck. What kind of attitude
do they have? Most likely, they are
people who see the opportunities that
often come disguised as problems.
In the story above, one man is given
a chance to dig ditches and prospers,
and one is given a great assignment
and falls back. Each took what was
given them and applied their own

attitude to it. Look at your life and see
how you are applying your attitude to
what is happening to you. The answer
will have much to do with your success
or failure to achieve your dreams.

* By KEVIN BRADY
kevin@riverviewcurrent.com
Clothing that would otherwise be
headed for the landfill is getting a
new lease on life thanks to two local
women who are also providing jobs
to single moms along the way.
Flip Market creates one-of-a-kind
products by rescuing vintage clothes
and creating totes,
bags, clutches, leather
goods, 'man' bags
and iPad covers. The
Brandon-based social
enterprise employs
disadvantaged single
moms.
The brainchild of
Stacey Efaw and ,,,
Eleanor Saunders, the S.
company has already i.
sold more than 100 TAEE
STACEY El
items at outdoor KE,
markets around the
Bay area. Retailers
are also taking note. Flip's purses
are now on sale at the Florida Jean
Company in Ybor City.
"It really came about because
Eleanor has always been into
'upcycling' and we know there are
people out there who need jobs,"
said Efaw.
Upcycling is the process of
converting waste materials or
useless products into new materials
or products of better quality or for
better environmental value.
"The purpose is to help people and
help the planet, taking products that
just would have gone to landfills and
using them while at the same time
we are helping single moms and
disadvantaged people; most of the
money goes to them. It's really just a
fun thing for us."
Buying vintage clothing from thrift
stores and estate sales, the company
creates one-of-kind products, each
with its own story, literally. Using
old ties, men's coats and vintage
designs reminiscent of the 1970s and
'60s, the end product also includes
a short note written by Saunders
detailing how the bag, say, was
created and what materials were
used.
The items range in price from $20
to $45.
The company currently employs
three single moms to create the
products.
All the single moms who work on
the bags have full-time jobs. They
learned to sew and create the bags
for extra income.
"We give the opportunities to
people who just need a little extra
money. They get most of the money,"
said Efaw who has served as the
executive director of the nonprofit
Emergency Care Help Organization
(ECHO) since 2002.
Founded in 1987, ECHO serves


communities from Gibsonton to
Brandon and has helped more
than 140,000 area residents, more
than half of them children, with
food and clothing.
"It's something we see at ECHO
all the time. People want to work.
They just need the opportunity."
While marketing for the
company's products
has been limited to
local arts and crafts
fairs, demand is
already outstripping
supply.
"The good and bad
thing is we get to the
shows and we sell out
of all of our products.
The biggest surprise
at the shows is that
it's the men who are
BRADY PHOTO bringing their wives
over to see the bags.
It's odd to see a man
drag his wife over to buy a purse."
Flip Market has also had orders
for custom-made bags created for
a family member from clothing
worn by a loved one who has
passed away. The company's iPad
covers are also a hot seller, and
they have now started to branch
out into accessories for their bags,
such as coin purses.
Standing out in a sea of often
anonymous, generic bags with
handmade, unique products has
helped the fledgling company,
Efaw believes.
"You can go anywhere and
buy a purse but I think when
people wear these products they
know they have provided a few
hours of employment to a single
mom, they know it's made from
something that would have been
thrown out. It's a feel-good thing
all the way around."
Efaw, who holds a bachelor's
degree in business management
and a master's degree in
business administration from
the University of South Florida,
would like to see how the
company does before applying for
nonprofit status.
"It takes two years to get a
nonprofit license so right now we
are just kind of testing it to see if
it will work."
Find out more about Flip
Market by visiting the company's
Facebook page, search for "HFlip
Market." Products will also be on
sale starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday,
Dec. 1 at the FishHawk Fresh
Market, 16132 Churchview Drive
in Lithia.

This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is the Roamin' Oldies Cruiser of
the Month for November.
Sporty '69 Chevelle SS is Cruiser of the
Month


An all-original 1969 Chevrolet
Chevelle SS, pulled out of a Brooks-
ville barn last May by Joe Penta of
Apollo Beach, has been voted No-
vember Cruiser of the Month for the
Roamin' Oldies car club.
"It was in that barn for 20 years,"
Joe said. "It was in primer, and a
door and fender were dented. But
it's a Florida car and there was no
rust." In three months of non-stop
work, Joe, his son Steve and friend
Dennis Lewis had it looking like
new, with a silky Ruby Pearl finish.
'They didn't make many of these
cars, and there are some clones out
there, but this one is all original,"
Joe said. With only 88,000 miles on
the odometer, the Chevelle still has
the 396 cubic inch/350 horsepower


engine, 400 automatic transmission
and the interior it had when it left the
factory.
The Roamin' Oldies host a cruise-
in from 6 to 9 p.m. the first Thursday
of every month in the Apollo Beach
Winn-Dixie Plaza on US 41, with a
raindate the following Thursday.
There is no charge for spectators
or participants, who vote to select
the Cruiser of the Month.
About 100 of the area's finest an-
tique and collectible cars often take
part, accompanied by classic oldies
music played by DJ Joey Ferrante.
The event is sponsored by Thomp-
son's Auto Parts and Sun City Cen-
ter Funeral Home. For information,
call Chet at 813-842-1511.

Holiday Classics with a Twist


This holiday season celebrate
with loved ones by serving up fresh
takes on classic dishes that will have
your guests reaching for seconds.
After all, the holidays are all about
bringing the whole family together,
and a warm, inviting meal is at the
heart of every memorable gathering.


Delicious stuffing dishes-with a
twist!
While delectable entrees are often
revered as the "stars" of most holiday
meals, many agree that a holiday
dinner is not complete without
the stuffing. The scrumptious
combination of fine breads and


savory seasonings brings tradition
and warmth to any spread. This year,
add a dose of the unexpected to your
own holiday menu by serving up a
twist on classic stuffing, using one
of these mouth-watering recipes
featuring Pepperidge Farm
Stuffing. Made from premium


bread and flavorful ingredients, this
delicious side (also available in a
new unseasoned mix) provides a
high-quality foundation for creating
praise-worthy stuffing dishes.
The Apple-Raisin Stuffing recipe
highlights the seasonal flavors of
cinnamon, apples and raisins for


a savory-yet-sweet dish, while the
Caramelized Onion with Pancetta
and Rosemary Stuffing recipe boasts
the rich, salty flavors of pancetta
alongside sweeter caramelized
onions.

America's Favorite Toys


Great athletes often receive a lot of awards and honors, including becoming part of a Hall of Fame.
There are Hall of Fames for many sports as well as for toys.
The National Toy Hall of Fame is in Rochester, NY, and showcases over 50 toys, many of which are
still around today. Bicycles, crayons, jump ropes, marbles, roller skates and yo-yos are just some of the
toys on display at the National Toy Hall of Fame.
Each year, many toys are considered for the National Toy Hall of Fame, but only a few are
chosen. The National Toy Hall of Fame is open most days of the year and allows visitors the chance
to play with some toy favorites.

Mistakes are easy to make when preparing your plants for winter


0 Continued from page 1
Plants in containers are espe-
cially vulnerable, she said.
"Bring them inside the garage if
you can, or group them together
and cover them with blankets, but
be sure to get them back into the
sunshine in the morning even if
it's still cold because they need the
sunlight. And don't put them so
close their leaves crowd."
Gail Hubbell agrees, and adds
that one of the worst things people
can do when preparing for winter
is to allow any green fronds to be
cut off their palm trees.
Hubbell has been in the nursery


business in Ruskin for 27 years,
but Hubbell's Nursery on College
Avenue in Ruskin has been in the
South County area more than 50
years.
Gail Hubbell's husband David's
father started the business in St.
Petersburg but was recruited by
Sun City Center's first developer,
Del E. Webb, when Webb began
landscaping Sun City Center.
Webb started with cow pasture
and had to get someone who knew
the land.
"David's dad started on this side
of the Bay with Sun City Center,
and we've been in business here

ever since," Gail Hubbell said.
This definitely makes the Hub-
bells experts.
"Landscapers go around telling
people they need to 'hurricane
cut' their palms, and also trim
them before winter," she said in an
interview Nov. 15. "But actually,
this is the worst thing you can do.
In fact, you can kill the palms by
doing this."
In a separate interview, Pinson
agreed.
"The palms need every bit of
energy they can get to make it
through the winter. The fronds
provide the nutrients to the bud

that grows directly out of the top.
If a palm has 20 or 30 fronds and
15 are cut off, that's taking away
the ability to store all those nutri-
ents from the soil and sunlight,"
Hubbell said. "There should never
be green fronds or palm leaves
being taken to the dump. Only a
completely brown frond should
ever be removed. Taking green
fronds off is like taking away
1,500 calories of a person's 2,000
calorie diet."
Hubbell said to picture the face
of a clock. "Think of where the 9
and the 3 are. Fronds need to stay
above that level, never be cut from
above it."
Winter is hard on container
plants, too.
Leaves of large canopy plants
(especially in containers) may
be damaged if they are pushed
together to share warmth for
too long a time, Pinson added.
"Crowding is bad."
Bringing them into the garage
for the night is good, but returning
them to the outside in the morning
is crucial. Another tip offered by
Pinson is to make sure plants are


watered well before the cold night
temperature hits.
Another thing we can do to
prepare for winter is to begin
composting for next year's garden,
Pinson said. This is something that
can be done year-round.
Not just leaves and grass and
other yard waste, but coffee
grounds, vegetable peels and
cores, leftover foods, except for
meat, make really good compost.
"It's a form of double-recy-
cling," Pinson said. "It replenishes
the earth, while diminishing what
goes in the trash."
Keeping a bowl with a lid for
this purpose and dumping it out-
side where the garden is expected
to be grown, or around existing
plants, or just making a compost
pile to use at a later date, are all
methods encouraged by the exten-
sion service.
"We teach composting and a lot of
other things in cooperation with the
University of Florida," Pinson said.

Fish Tales: Get to know the local fish species


Six words that have been uttered
over thousands of years by anglers is:
'What kind of fish is this?"
Since there are more
than 4,000 species out
there, these words will
be repeated each and ev-
ery day, as long as there
are fishermen.
We really should take
the time to educate our- ByJonie M
selves on the fish in our Member: Florid,
waters, especially since WritersAsso
some can be dangerous
because of their venomous barbs or
razor-sharp teeth.
There are people who have made
fishing a lifetime study. Most li-
braries have many books on fish
and how to fish.
If you catch a fish that you have never
seen or heard of before, ask a fellow an-
gler, or if a charter, the captain will most
likely have the answer. Those who live
on the water each day have educated
themselves on the many species.
Three fish that have been labeled
champion game fish are: tarpon, bon-
efish, and ladyfish. They have fighting
hearts, and will tug, soar in the air, flip,
and run. These three fish provide mil-
lions of dollars to the fishing tackle
industry. As for food value, they are
listed as poor. Some say only a ship-


wrecked person would eat them if they
were starving.
One of the favorites to catch is the
-- redfish, of which we have
Plenty in our waters. The wa-
ter temperature is still warm
S enough for them to be on the
drops below 60 degrees, they
Share still around but swim to
schek deeper water or in holes.
outdoorr Asking local anglers about
tion their favorite catch, the majori-
ty said sheepshead and spotted
seatrout. Both are a challenge to catch.
The sheepshead has a bony mouth,
and it is difficult to set the hook. The
trout has a very soft mouth, and it is
difficult to keep it on the hook.
Snook, cobia, and wahoo are dyna-
mite catches. Snook play hard-to-get
by being quiet in the shadows, and
then make a huge charge at the bait.
All three fish will give an angler a
workout before boated.
I talked to local anglers who say
your catch depends on the right bait. I
do know that there is plenty of bait still
in our waters. You can catch your own
if you know how to throw a bait net
and can recognize a school when pass-
ing. If you don't use live bait, switch
your color of lures around. One that
we hear more about is the plain old


gold lure. Artificial baits are numer-
ous; try different types until you find
one that works.
The most popular catch this week
was the redfish, followed closely by
sheepshead.
I saw a couple of cobia catches along
with speckled trout and flounder.
Freshwater catches have been great
this time of the year, with lots of cat-
fish and large-mouth bass.
This is the time of the year that
people from all over the world come
to Florida for winter fishing, and even
more so for bass tournaments. Be
kind to those who stop you and ask
questions, or who are lost in our man-
groves. Remember that visitors are
great for the local economy.

and tools to help get you started.

y health yourself healthy.


f the most
ing yourself


Family Tracking
To create a family health history,


you'll need to start by collecting some
basic medical information on your
first-degree relatives, including your
parents, siblings and children. Then
move on to your grandparents, aunts,
uncles and first cousins.
You need to get the specific ages of
when they developed health problems
like heart disease, cancer, diabetes,
arthritis, dementia, depression, etc. If
family members are deceased, you
need to know when and how they
died. If possible, include lifestyle
information as well, such as diet,
exercise, smoking and alcohol use.
Some relatives may not want to
share their medical histories or they
may not know their family history, but
whatever information you discover
will be helpful.


To get information on diseased
relatives, get a copy of their death
certificate. This will list their cause of
death and the age he or she died. To
get a death certificate, contact the vital
records office in the state where your
relative died, or go to vitalchek.com.
Helpful Resources
To get help putting together your
family health history, the U.S.
Surgeon General offers a free web-
based tool called N y Family Health
Portrait" (see familyhistory.hhs.gov)
that can help you collect, organize and
understand your genetic risks and even
share the information with your family
members and doctors.
Another great resource that provides
similar assistance is the Genetic Alli-
ance's online tool called "Does It Run
in the Fainih "I At familyhealthhis-
tory.org you can create a customized
guide on your family health history for
free. Or, if you don't have Internet ac-
cess, call 202-966-5557 and ask them
to send you a free hardcopy of these
booklets in the mail.
And, if you're adopted, the National
Foster Care & Adoption Directory


Search may be able to help you locate
your birth parents to get their medical
history. See childwelfare.gov/nfcad or
call 800-394-3366.
Managing Your Results
If you discover some serious health
problems that run in your family, don't
despair. While you can't change your
genes, you can change your habits to
increase your chances of a healthy
future. By eating a healthy diet,
exercising and not smoking, you can
offset and sometimes even neutralize
your genetic vulnerabilities. This is
especially true for heart disease, stroke,
type-2 diabetes and osteoporosis.
A family medical history can also
alert you to get early and frequent
screening tests, which can help detect
other problems (high blood pressure,
high cholesterol, and cancers like
breast, ovarian, prostrate and colon
cancer) in their early stages when
they're most treatable.

Observations:

I'm becoming aware that I'm a
guy who doesn't handle change
all that well. In 1994, we moved
to a little backwater town on
Tampa Bay and, to me, it was
overflowing in charm. And then
it all changed. Well, not all of it.
Some of it is still... well, back-
water, but a lot of it changed. In
being honest with myself, for the
most part, the changes have made
it a better place.
But that doesn't mean I haven't
struggled with them.
Despite the axiom that tigers
don't change their stripes (or
spots, whatever) I know that not
only do towns change, people
change, too. I know of some
good people who have turned bad
and some bad people who have
turned good. I'm sure there are a
lot of people that are somewhere
in the middle.
People change, but what causes
a change in the heart? Mentally, I
don't feel any different than I did
years ago but it has been pointed
out that I've changed over the
years. Have I gotten meaner?
More cynical? More soft? More


Cha-ch-ch-changes


naive? Less naive? I don't know.
But apparently I've changed and
not every change has been for the
better.
I've known people
who have drifted apart
after a mere two or three
years of marriage. How
could that happen? I've
met couples that have
been married for seven Observi
decades who would never By Mitch TI
be apart from each other. mitch@o
A few years ago I had the
honor of photographing
one of the last remaining World
War I veterans (there are none
left today). He was well over 100
years old and his wife was 98. For
the entire time I was with them,
they never stopped holding hands.
Surely in more than a century
a person must change, right? So
how does that work? Did his wife
change with him or did she just
accept his changes? Did they
change together or did he not
change at all?
When I worked for the House
of Representatives I had a private
joke, somewhat gently para-

phrased here, about how things
could change for the esteemed
members of the venerable in-
lstitution. Someone

rvernews.net long after, he would
realize that in order
to make the changes
needed, he would need to be
re-elected and in order to do that,
he would need a lot more money
and in order to get it, he would
need to compromise some of his
principles, just a little, here and
there. And then he needed to be
re-elected again and that brought
on a few more compromises of
his principles.
That goes on for some time
until one day, he excuses himself
from dinner with his very nice
family in his very nice townhouse
in suburban DC, walks to his
bathroom, turns on the light, looks

in the mirror and finds himself in
a cheap motel room with blood-
shot eyes and a woman he doesn't
know passed out in the back-
ground. And painfully, he realizes
in that one miserable instance just
how far he has strayed from his
original, noble intentions.
OK, so that doesn't really hap-
pen at least I hope not. But


there have been enough scandals
to suggest there is some truth to
that: Senators playing footsie in
airport bathrooms, Congressman
hitting on young pages, and so on.
Are these people bad people? Yes,
on the surface it's easy enough to
say that. Were they always bad
people? I don't think so. Are they

You, me and business.

A ride of reflection


Saturday morning started out over-
cast with a lingering drizzle of rain.
It may have kept some bikers from
attending the ride, but it seemed to
fit the mood of the day.
Beef O'Bradys in [
Apollo Beach served up a
substantial buffet brunch B
for those who showed
up. The coffee was hot
and the bacon extra crisp.
This was the starting ByDana
point. The check in. And Executive
in groups of four, or six or sCC Cha,
however many, they wan- Commerce
dered in, ready to ride.
Kelly Kowall welcomed them to
Project Corregidor- the Ride for the
Fallen. As the founder of My War-
rior's Place in Ruskin, Kelly started
this ride to honor her son and all
the others who did not make it. Af-
ter her remarks, she introduced the
Gold Star Moms who had lost sons
or daughters overseas. And then, we
were humbled for the first time that
day when the color guard entered.
They were members of AVAST,
the nation's only color guard made
up entirely of amputees, each pros-
thetic leg proudly displaying the in-
signia of their military branch. The
men and women of this unit remind-
ed us all that freedom is never free.
Several bikers from the Latin Sol-
diers were on hand to escort the rid-
ers from Apollo Beach to Memorial
Park in Tampa. As their Commander
explained, the members of their club
were soldiers first, Latino second.
With four of them leading us off
in front, and three more at the rear
making sure we were escorted prop-
erly, the Latino Soldiers did an out-
standing job of winding us through


intersections and along 1-75.
On the sides of the roads were
signs. Photos of fallen warriors with
their names, ranks and units. Thirty


Dittmar,
Director
mber of
e


of them in total, again re-
minding us of the cost of
freedom.
I was proud to have
rounded up three veterans
from my neighborhood.
We didn't have motor-
cycles, so we rode in an
SUV, still part of the mo-
torcade. Still protected
by the skillful herding of
the Latin Soldiers.


First the flags, then the vehicles
carrying the Gold Star Moms, then
the bikers, and then the rest of us.
We took up the better part of half
a mile, riding in honor of those 30
fallen soldiers.
As we pulled into the memorial
park, we saw a Gold Star Mom exit
her vehicle, fall to her knees and kiss
the photo of her son the last of the
30 signs. She looked way too young
to have a son in the military. Way
too young to have a son die for his
country.
Despite the rain, most of the rid-
ers went on to take part in the poker
run a fundraiser for My Warrior's
Place. The rest of us left a lot more
humbled than when we arrived. My
three veterans and I stopped at the
VFW before heading home. It felt
so good to have been a part of this
amazing ride.
And as we left the VFW, we all
noticed the sky had cleared, and it
was a beautiful sunny south central
Florida afternoon. Perfect weather
for a ride.


C.A.R.E. is open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
For directions, visit www.CareShelter.org or call (813) 645-2273.


Wolfie
Wolfie is a gray tabby cat who
was recently brought to C.A.R.E.
with his three siblings, Nip, Tuck
and Buddy. Wolfie loves to play
with the other kittens at the shel-
ter, and is quite a charmer, but he
would like to come to live at a for-
ever home of his own. Why not go
see this handsome guy and give
him that home. Wolfie has been
neutered and microchipped and
he is current on his shots .
DOB: Sepember 2, 2012.


Chase
Chase is a handsome Lab mix
who was found with brother Rocky,
abandoned on the streets of Ruskin.
His rough start hasn't affected his
love for people. Chase has started
obedience training at the shelter and
is doing great! He also knows how
to retrieve balls.. He would do best
in a home with only older children.
This speckled-nose pup deserves a
second chance at a happy life. As
part of Chase's adoption, he has
been neutered, microchipped, and
brought current on his shots.
DOB: December 2, 2011.

bad people today? Not necessar-
ily. In fact, probably not.
In a state as crowded and fast
growing as Florida, it is very easy
to become embattled, to look at
virtually everyone as the compe-
tition competition for space
on the freeway or in line in the
grocery store. It is easy to look
at a hardworking elected official
and think of them as a crook on
the take. But that is really no way
to go through life. I once read a
book that suggested that we try to
envision people as they put their


with as little pain as possible.
Somebody might cut you off in
traffic or appear rude in a store.
But we don't know what may
have happened did their child
die? Is their child horribly ill? Has
their spouse just been diagnosed
with cancer? Have they just been
diagnosed with cancer?
It could be any of that. Of
course it could also be that the
person is just a jerk. But I prefer
to believe that with the exception
of a fairly well known few, we
are all inherently decent. And as I

get older and see more tragedy in
life, I'm more willing to err on the
side of caution. If someone is a
jerk, I'll try to smile and let it pass
because for all I know they just
lost a spouse or something equally
horrible.
It is often said that the only con-
stant in life is change. I'm just not
a fan of change. And today, I'm
facing changes that are unpleasant
and sometimes heartbreaking. It
is not always fun, but that's life.
And even in that, there are always
those moments moments that
matter; moments that remind us
that life is wonderful. But if you
see me in line and I appear to be
ajerk, I'm sorry. I didn't mean to
be ajerk. There's just a lot going

true for a lot of us.

Riverview resident teaches spiritual
and social lessons in new books


Last week, :::: :..;
Riverview FU
author K.D. Fo' r
Brown cel- e
ebrated the
nationwide Leaves
release of her
two new chil-
dren's books,
Hi, God and
Four Lucky ...
Leaves, where
she imparts
the importance
of prayer and
being different from everyone
else.
In Hi, God, readers are intro-
duced to Louie who, when he de-
cides he wants to talk with God,
finds himself stumbling over
how to pray. He focuses so much
on copying the different ways he
has seen others pray with God
that he forgets what he had want-
ed to say. What will Louie do?
Brown teaches children it's not
how they pray but prayer itself
that's important in this new chil-
dren's book.
In Four Lucky Leaves, a four-


..m..leaf clover is

n ing different,
MYand he tries to
OFchange his ap-
P pearance in or-
der to blend in.
Will his new

to help him
realize thatb
B sometimes the
only way to fit
in is to stand
out?
Brown imparts the very impor-
tant lesson of individual differ-
ences and uniqueness in this new
children's book.
Published by Tate Publishing
and Enterprises, the books are
available through bookstores na-
tionwide, from the publisher at
www.tatepublishing.com!book-
store, or by visiting barnesand-
noble.com or amazon.com.
Brown works full-time as a le-
gal assistant and is a contributor
for the Tampa Bay Moms Blog.
She has an English degree from
the University of South Florida.


At 3 p.m. on Sunday, Dec. 8,
the United Community Church,
at 1501 La Jolla Ave. in Sun City
Center, will sponsor a Sing-Along
to Handel's Messiah.
Everyone is invited to go and par-
ticipate or just enjoy. Members of
all church choirs in the surround-
ing area are invited to participate
in the Master Chorus, seated in the
chancel and front pew areas.
You may bring your own Messi-
ah score, or purchase one for $10.
To register to sing in the Master
Chorus or order a score, call Jo
Winslow at 813-634-3510.
The afternoon will feature a
string ensemble under the direc-
tion of guest conductor Raymund
Ocampo, with Robert Winslow at
the organ and Linnea Nosworthy
at the harpsichord. Soloists for the
performance will be announced at
a later date.
Organizers hope you will want to
join with others in the community
to enjoy singing what many con-
sider the greatest Christmas music
ever composed, culminating in the
grand and glorious "Hallelujah
Chorus."

Hearing
loop helps
congregation at
Prince of Peace
This past summer Prince of
Peace Catholic Church in Sun City
Center installed a hearing loop
in the church to assist those with
hearing loss to hear more clearly
during services.
A hearing loop is an assistive
listening system that transmits
sound directly into one's hearing
aids or cochlear implants, rather
than depending on sound com-
ing from loudspeakers. To receive
the loop signal, parishioners and
guests must manually activate the
T-coil or telephone setting in their
devices.
At 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21,
representatives from Complete
Hearing Solutions will make a
presentation at the church about
the new hearing loop system.
Prince of Peace is located at 702
Valley Forge Blvd. in SCC.

SEEDS
FROM
THE
SOWER



A chauffeur was being honored
for his record of having driven for
more than 45 years and never hav-
ing an accident.
"What's your secret?" asked the
Master of Ceremonies.
Quickly he replied, "I stay away
from dangerous places places
where accidents are likely to hap-
pen."
What great advice. All too often
we find ourselves in places or situ-
ations where danger is awaiting us.
Acting carelessly, we sometimes
get into difficulties that present
problems that we cannot solve or
are forced to make decisions that
exceed our experience.
We can get great insight for liv-
ing from God's Word. The Bible
puts it this way: "Hold on to what-
ever is really good. Steer clear of
evil in any form."
The Bible will give us insight
into dangers and the destructive
nature of sin. It will help us see sin
for what it is an enticing, invit-
ing, ensnaring, and easy path to
self-destruction with no warning
signs or signals.

Issues


Affect


4 of 10 of Americans.


Visible veins? Tired legs? Leg/ankle pain, cramps or swelling? Treatment is easier
than ever and Insurance and/or Medicare now pays for 99% of vein treatments.

Most vein issues are not simply cosmetic nuisances they are medical conditions that get worse and worse.
They can cause serious complications when left untreated. With new technologies, treatment is now quick,
virtually pain free and paid for by your insurance company.


1-Minute Self Screening
Check if you have any of the following:
] Leg Pain/Ache L Night cramps L Restlessness
Leg pain, night cramps, restlessness, "tiredness" or aching like an iceberg,
most of your vein problems are hidden. Now, the source of your pain is
easily discovered using Ultrasound.


LJ Blue Feet/Ankles:
Blue vessels at the instep and ankle often indicate
vein valve failure in larger hidden vessels.


/ If
Ip Your legs
iaI will look better
feel better
and be much
safer & healthier


U] Swollen Ankles:
Swelling is often caused by failed veins, rather than renal or cardiac issues.


U Skin Changes:
Discolored skin results when veins with failed valves
leak blood, fluid and protein, sickening the skin.


LJ Spider or Reticular Veins
Spider, Reticular and Varicose
veins are easily treated in
the office with
modern technologies.

A Riverview veterinary office is offering pet photo shoots. See page 26. American Victory goes to seaBy %  MITCH TTRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netOn Saturday, a Tampa Bay area museum picked up and headed out to sea. The American Victory Ship, a floating museum that offers a living view into an honored past, untied the dock lines and steamed into Tampa Bay on its annual fundraising cruise. SS American Victory, docked near the Florida Aquarium in Tampas Channelside District, is a World War II era armed cargo Victory Class ship, one of more than 500 such ships built but one of only three that remain operational today. It is an icon of American ability and power that won a world war. The ship, at 455 feet long, was built in a mere 55 days and was launched in California in 1945. It served in World War II and both the Korean and Vietnam wars. It was slated to be scrapped in 1996 but instead was brought to Tampa Bay and restored as a fully functional museum. The ship arrived in Tampa under tow in 1999. It remains a rare treasure and is completely open for public viewing and exploration. Saturdays annual fundraising cruise attracted a broad range of passengers ranging from veterans to children. Because the ship is no longer fully loaded with cargo, nearly half of the large single propeller is above water, limiting the speed of the ship, something that certainly did not detract from the unique experience of sailing back in time aboard an American legend. The SS American Victory is open for tours and exploration Sundays and Mondays from 12 to 5 p.m. and Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10 for adults, $8 for seniors and students and $5 for veterans and young children.

Ancient procedure to eliminate toxins now covered by MedicareWith a referral, under certain circumstancesBy %  PENN PENNY FLETCHERETCHER penny@observernews.netNot too many years ago, techniques including acupuncture, and even chiropractic, werent approved medical procedures in the United States, even though they had been used for centuries in other countries. Even after they were well established in the states, and considered legitimate treatment by the American Medical Association, most insurances did not cover them for a long time. In the past 50 years, however, many things once considered holistic have been shown to make a big difference in patient care. A lot of the techniques came from Eastern medicine, records of which are well over 3,500 years old. In the last 10 years, the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md., has built a large mind-body institute studying the effects of thought, and yes, even prayer, on physical illness and healing. The new study of epigenetics is also proving that concentration can alter the state of a gene, and researchers in this field say this could unlock cures to many diseases that are now considered terminal. Licensed massage therapist Connie Larkin has taken some special training that you must either be a licensed massage therapist or a physical therapist to study, and shes practicing it locally by appointment at Bain Complete Wellness centers.

Crowding pots the too close together on a porch or garage so they can help warm each other can also do damage. If you do it wrong, that is. Many people think they can put plastic right on top of their plants and protect them, said Nicole Pinson from the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods Program of the Hillsborough County Extension Service. But if the plastic is laid right on the plants, touching them, it can actually conduct the cold right into the plants and kill them. Using plastic or tarps is all right if they are staked up so they have a greenhouse effect. But even then, they need to be uncovered as soon as daylight comes so the sun can warm them again. Blankets, cardboard boxes, anything layered is better, Pinson added. Putting a heat bulb under the blanket being careful not to touch it so it doesnt catch fire helps, too. Getting ready now by collecting boxes and blankets, before any freezes hit, is a good idea.Continued on page 13X The Cruiser of the month for November is this 1969 Chevelle SS owned by Joe Penta.

Ward has been helping clients build, manage and protect their wealth for over 40 years. Its called manual lymphatic drainage and it has only recently been approved by Medicare for some patients with a referral from their primary doctor. Larkin is definitely at the forefront of a technique new to the states, even though it has been used in many countries for centuries. When I first heard about it I thought it was a natural outgrowth of my massage therapy and went to Fort Lauderdale to take training, she said in an interview Nov. 14. Its been in practice for more than 100 years but only came to America in the 1970s. Still, until recently, the problem has been getting insurance to pay for it. In Europe, certified MLD therapists are found in the finest lymphology clinics, she said. With breast cancer, for example, the lymph glands are often removed and the lymph vessels swell tremendously, she explained. This treatment is a special kind of gentle massage therapy directed at the lymph vessels, (not the muscles) that lie just below the skins surface. In many countries, pre-op treatments include this therapy to clean the system of debris and post-op treatments accelerate healing, she added. Along with the special training, which she received from Elisa DiFalco, considered top in this field, she also learned how to accurately measure for the compression garments used by both male and female patients, usually after surgeries for breast and prostate cancer. She has learned the bandaging procedures, and also how to train patients to bandage themselves to help with the treatment for this type of edema. This can slow, reduce, and even prevent swelling usually associated with many cancer surgeries and treatments. The treatment brings the movement of the lymph from 10 to 12 beats per minute to something like 100 or 120, she said. This immediately takes out the cellular debris and toxins and the way we know it is working is that the patient must get up and immediately use the restroom. The toxins continue to flow through the body and be quickly eliminated for 48 hours following the treatment, she said. Larkin, who was already practicing licensed massage therapy when she took the special lymphatic classes, said she did it because her two sisters asked her to. My sister Janice in Baton Rouge had breast cancer. They took out 35 lymph nodes from under one arm, and the edema swelling was terrible. It was like a big balloon. My other sister had RA, rheumatoid arthritis. So on her birthday, Larkin says she gave herself a birthday gift. I treated both my sisters for my birthday present, she said. The way trained massage and physical therapists do this treatment is different from when it is done by machines, she explained, because using the hands is gentler, prevents bruising or any possibility of applying too much pressure. Larkin now is associated with and takes appointments at all three locations of Bain Complete Wellness centers: in Riverview, Cory Lakes (New Tampa) and Tampa. I want to eventually be approved to go into peoples homes, she said. Its a big step getting Medicare to pay for it. People should check with their doctor for a referral and with their insurance company to see if theyre covered. Many go even though they arent covered because they can feel the elimination of the toxins immediately, she said. The cost for 50 minutes is $100, with bandaging techniques taught separately, if needed. One Sun City Center patient (who asked that she not be named) was interviewed for this story and said it was one of the most important pieces of her cancer treatment. It makes me feel wonderful, all clean and new again, she said. To find out more, visit http:// www.conniesclassictouch.com.

Graphic Arts / Layout jason@observernews.net The views expressed by our writers are not necessarily shared by The Observer News, SCC Observer, The Current or M&M Printing Co., Inc.We Accept:Award-Winning Newspapers In a recent conversation I was discussing the power of attitude with my friend, Gary Mull. We both pretty much agreed that it was not so much what happened to us that counted as what we did about what happened to us. Gary told me the following story of two men in his U.S. Air Force squadron. It seemed they all graduated from basic training at about the same time and were shipped to the Philippines where they were given different jobs. Due to the needs of the service, one of the men, even though he was trained as a clerk, was temporarily detailed to a communications construction group and the other man got the office job he had expected. One night at the enlisted club, the one detailed to digging holes and laying cable complained bitterly about his assignment while the other young man gloated at his good luck to be assigned inside. Gary suggested to both of them that they should make the best of what they had been given. Now lets fast forward six months same enlisted club, same three airmen. But there was a difference. Gary said the cable layer had taken his advice and made the best of his assignment by using the time to become physically fit. The six months of hard labor and oppressive heat had hardened and tanned his body to the point that none of the ladies in the club could take their eyes off him. The other who was given what at first appeared to be a great assignment had put on a number of pounds from too many coffee breaks and the ready supply of snacks in the vending area. Since he saw little sun, his face was pale and the lack of exercise had not been kind to the way his body looked. Two men two opportunities. One made good use of his time to prosper and the other fell back. It was all a matter of attitude. Author Charles Swindoll said, What challenges are you looking at today that with By William Hodges a change in attitude could become opportunities? The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. It is more important than the past, education, money, circumstances, failure, success, or what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church or a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it just as it is with all of us. We are in charge of our attitude and its not really much different than what one airman said to another, is it? Look around you. Observe the attitude of those who appear to have all the luck. What kind of attitude do they have? Most likely, they are people who see the opportunities that often come disguised as problems. In the story above, one man is given a chance to dig ditches and prospers, and one is given a great assignment and falls back. Each took what was given them and applied their own Positive Talk: A tale of two menattitude to it. Look at your life and see how you are applying your attitude to what is happening to you. The answer will have much to do with your success or failure to achieve your dreams.Hodges is a nationally recognized speaker, trainer and syndicated columnist.

By %  KEVIN BRADY kevin@riverviewcurrent.comClothing that would otherwise be headed for the landfill is getting a new lease on life thanks to two local women who are also providing jobs to single moms along the way. Flip Market creates one-of-a-kind products by rescuing vintage clothes and creating totes, bags, clutches, leather goods, man bags and iPad covers. The Brandon-based social enterprise employs disadvantaged single moms. The brainchild of Stacey Efaw and Eleanor Saunders, the company has already sold more than 100 items at outdoor markets around the Bay area. Retailers are also taking note. Flips purses are now on sale at the Florida Jean Company in Ybor City. It really came about because Eleanor has always been into upcycling and we know there are people out there who need jobs, said Efaw. Upcycling is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value. The purpose is to help people and help the planet, taking products that just would have gone to landfills and using them while at the same time we are helping single moms and disadvantaged people; most of the money goes to them. Its really just a fun thing for us. Buying vintage clothing from thrift stores and estate sales, the company creates one-of-kind products, each with its own story, literally. Using old ties, mens coats and vintage designs reminiscent of the 1970s and s, the end product also includes a short note written by Saunders detailing how the bag, say, was created and what materials were used. The items range in price from $20 to $45. The company currently employs three single moms to create the products. All the single moms who work on the bags have fulltime jobs. They learned to sew and create the bags for extra income. We give the opportunities to people who just need a little extra money. They get most of the money, said Efaw who has served as the executive director of the nonprofit Emergency Care Help Organization (ECHO) since 2002. Founded in 1987, ECHO serves communities from Gibsonton to Brandon and has helped more than 140,000 area residents, more than half of them children, with food and clothing. Its something we see at ECHO all the time. People want to work. They just need the opportunity. While marketing for the companys products has been limited to local arts and crafts fairs, demand is already outstripping supply. The good and bad thing is we get to the shows and we sell out of all of our products. The biggest surprise at the shows is that its the men who are bringing their wives over to see the bags. Its odd to see a man drag his wife over to buy a purse. Flip Market has also had orders for custom-made bags created for a family member from clothing worn by a loved one who has passed away. The companys iPad covers are also a hot seller, and they have now started to branch out into accessories for their bags, such as coin purses. Standing out in a sea of often anonymous, generic bags with handmade, unique products has helped the fledgling company, Efaw believes. You can go anywhere and buy a purse but I think when people wear these products they know they have provided a few hours of employment to a single mom, they know its made from something that would have been thrown out. Its a feel-good thing all the way around. Efaw, who holds a bachelors degree in business management and a masters degree in business administration from the University of South Florida, would like to see how the company does before applying for nonprofit status. It takes two years to get a nonprofit license so right now we are just kind of testing it to see if it will work. Find out more about Flip Market by visiting the companys Facebook page, search for Flip Market. Products will also be on sale starting at 10 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 1 at the FishHawk Fresh Market, 16132 Churchview Drive in Lithia.

Pebble Beach Blvd., Sun City Center This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is the Roamin Oldies Cruiser of the Month for November. Sporty Chevelle SS is Cruiser of the MonthAn all-original 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS, pulled out of a Brooksville barn last May by Joe Penta of Apollo Beach, has been voted November Cruiser of the Month for the Roamin Oldies car club. It was in that barn for 20 years, Joe said. It was in primer, and a door and fender were dented. But its a Florida car and there was no rust. In three months of non-stop work, Joe, his son Steve and friend Dennis Lewis had it looking like new, with a silky Ruby Pearl finish. They didnt make many of these cars, and there are some clones out there, but this one is all original, Joe said. With only 88,000 miles on the odometer, the Chevelle still has the 396 cubic inch/350 horsepower engine, 400 automatic transmission and the interior it had when it left the factory. The Roamin Oldies host a cruisein from 6 to 9 p.m. the first Thursday of every month in the Apollo Beach Winn-Dixie Plaza on US 41, with a raindate the following Thursday. There is no charge for spectators or participants, who vote to select the Cruiser of the Month. About 100 of the areas finest antique and collectible cars often take part, accompanied by classic oldies music played by DJ Joey Ferrante. The event is sponsored by Thompsons Auto Parts and Sun City Center Funeral Home. For information, call Chet at 813-842-1511.

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. Plants in containers are especially vulnerable, she said. Bring them inside the garage if you can, or group them together and cover them with blankets, but be sure to get them back into the sunshine in the morning even if its still cold because they need the sunlight. And dont put them so close their leaves crowd. Gail Hubbell agrees, and adds that one of the worst things people can do when preparing for winter is to allow any green fronds to be cut off their palm trees. Hubbell has been in the nursery business in Ruskin for 27 years, but Hubbells Nursery on College Avenue in Ruskin has been in the South County area more than 50 years. Gail Hubbells husband Davids father started the business in St. Petersburg but was recruited by Sun City Centers first developer, Del E. Webb, when Webb began landscaping Sun City Center. Webb started with cow pasture and had to get someone who knew the land. Davids dad started on this side of the Bay with Sun City Center, and weve been in business here ever since, Gail Hubbell said. This definitely makes the Hubbells experts. Landscapers go around telling people they need to hurricane cut their palms, and also trim them before winter, she said in an interview Nov. 15. But actually, this is the worst thing you can do. In fact, you can kill the palms by doing this. In a separate interview, Pinson agreed. The palms need every bit of energy they can get to make it through the winter. The fronds provide the nutrients to the bud that grows directly out of the top. If a palm has 20 or 30 fronds and 15 are cut off, thats taking away the ability to store all those nutrients from the soil and sunlight, Hubbell said. There should never be green fronds or palm leaves being taken to the dump. Only a completely brown frond should ever be removed. Taking green fronds off is like taking away 1,500 calories of a persons 2,000 calorie diet. Hubbell said to picture the face of a clock. Think of where the 9 and the 3 are. Fronds need to stay above that level, never be cut from above it. Winter is hard on container plants, too. Leaves of large canopy plants (especially in containers) may be damaged if they are pushed together to share warmth for too long a time, Pinson added. Crowding is bad. Bringing them into the garage for the night is good, but returning them to the outside in the morning is crucial. Another tip offered by Pinson is to make sure plants are watered well before the cold night temperature hits. Another thing we can do to prepare for winter is to begin composting for next years garden, Pinson said. This is something that can be done year-round. Not just leaves and grass and other yard waste, but coffee grounds, vegetable peels and cores, leftover foods, except for meat, make really good compost. Its a form of double-recycling, Pinson said. It replenishes the earth, while diminishing what goes in the trash. Keeping a bowl with a lid for this purpose and dumping it outside where the garden is expected to be grown, or around existing plants, or just making a compost pile to use at a later date, are all methods encouraged by the extension service. We teach composting and a lot of other things in cooperation with the University of Florida, Pinson said.To find out more about these or other extension classes, visit hillsborough.ifas.ufl.edu/lawn_ and_garden/lg_calendar.shtml.Mistakes are easy to make when preparing your plants for winter

Expires 12/31/13 Six words that have been uttered over thousands of years by anglers is: What kind of fish is this? Since there are more than 4,000 species out there, these words will be repeated each and every day, as long as there are fishermen. We really should take the time to educate our selves on the fish in our waters, especially since some can be dangerous because of their venomous barbs or razor-sharp teeth. There are people who have made fishing a lifetime study. Most libraries have many books on fish and how to fish. If you catch a fish that you have never seen or heard of before, ask a fellow angler, or if a charter, the captain will most likely have the answer. Those who live on the water each day have educated themselves on the many species. Three fish that have been labeled champion game fish are: tarpon, bonefish, and ladyfish. They have fighting hearts, and will tug, soar in the air, flip, and run. These three fish provide millions of dollars to the fishing tackle industry. As for food value, they are listed as poor. Some say only a shipwrecked person would eat them if they were starving. One of the favorites to catch is the redfish, of which we have plenty in our waters. The water temperature is still warm enough for them to be on the flats and in shallows. When it drops below 60 degrees, they are still around but swim to deeper water or in holes. Asking local anglers about their favorite catch, the majority said sheepshead and spotted seatrout. Both are a challenge to catch. The sheepshead has a bony mouth, and it is difficult to set the hook. The trout has a very soft mouth, and it is difficult to keep it on the hook. Snook, cobia, and wahoo are dynamite catches. Snook play hard-to-get by being quiet in the shadows, and then make a huge charge at the bait. All three fish will give an angler a workout before boated. I talked to local anglers who say your catch depends on the right bait. I do know that there is plenty of bait still in our waters. You can catch your own if you know how to throw a bait net and can recognize a school when passing. If you dont use live bait, switch your color of lures around. One that we hear more about is the plain old By Jonie MaschekMember: Florida Outdoor Writers Association Fish Tales: Get to know the local fish speciesgold lure. Artificial baits are numer ous; try different types until you find one that works. The most popular catch this week was the redfish, followed closely by sheepshead. I saw a couple of cobia catches along with speckled trout and flounder. Freshwater catches have been great this time of the year, with lots of catfish and large-mouth bass. This is the time of the year that people from all over the world come to Florida for winter fishing, and even more so for bass tournaments. Be kind to those who stop you and ask questions, or who are lost in our mangroves. Remember that visitors are great for the local economy.

My doctor recently suggested that I make one as a way to predict potential health problems as I get older, but I could use some help. Getting Old Dear Getting, It’s a smart idea! Even with all the high-tech medical tests and procedures that are available today, an accurate family health history remains one of the most important tools in keeping yourself healthy as you age. Here’s what you should know, along with some tips and tools to help get you started. Inheritable Diseases Just as you can inherit your father’s height or your mother’s eye color, you can also inherit their genetic risk for diseases like cancer, diabetes, heart disease and more. If one generation of a family has high blood pressure, for example, it is not unusual for the next generation to have it too. Therefore, tracing the illnesses suffered by your relatives can help you and your doctor predict the disorders you may be at risk for, so you can take action to keep yourself healthy. Family Tracking To create a family health history, you’ll need to start by collecting some basic medical information on your first-degree relatives, including your parents, siblings and children. Then move on to your grandparents, aunts, uncles and first cousins. You need to get the specific ages of when they developed health problems like heart disease, cancer, diabetes, arthritis, dementia, depression, etc. If family members are deceased, you need to know when and how they died. If possible, include lifestyle information as well, such as diet, exercise, smoking and alcohol use. Some relatives may not want to share their medical histories or they may not know their family history, but whatever information you discover will be helpful. The Savvy Senior: How to Put Together Your Family’s Health History By Jim Miller To get information on diseased relatives, get a copy of their death certificate. This will list their cause of death and the age he or she died. To get a death certificate, contact the vital records office in the state where your relative died, or go to vitalchek.com. Helpful Resources To get help putting together your family health history, the U.S. Surgeon General offers a free webbased tool called “My Family Health Portrait” (see familyhistory.hhs.gov) that can help you collect, organize and understand your genetic risks and even share the information with your family members and doctors. Another great resource that provides similar assistance is the Genetic Alli ance’s online tool called “Does It Run in the Family.” At familyhealthhis tory.org you can create a customized guide on your family health history for free. Or, if you don’t have Internet ac cess, call 202-966-5557 and ask them to send you a free hardcopy of these booklets in the mail. And, if you’re adopted, the National Foster Care & Adoption Directory Search may be able to help you locate your birth parents to get their medical history. See childwelfare.gov/nfcad or call 800-394-3366. Managing Your Results If you discover some serious health problems that run in your family, don’t despair. While you can’t change your genes, you can change your habits to increase your chances of a healthy future. By eating a healthy diet, exercising and not smoking, you can offset and sometimes even neutralize your genetic vulnerabilities. This is especially true for heart disease, stroke, type-2 diabetes and osteoporosis. A family medical history can also alert you to get early and frequent screening tests, which can help detect other problems (high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and cancers like breast, ovarian, prostrate and colon cancer) in their early stages when they’re most treatable. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Se nior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today Show and author of The Savvy Senior book.

In 1994, we moved to a little backwater town on Tampa Bay and, to me, it was overflowing in charm. And then it all changed. Well, not all of it. Some of it is stillwell, backwater, but a lot of it changed. In being honest with myself, for the most part, the changes have made it a better place. But that doesnt mean I havent struggled with them. Despite the axiom that tigers dont change their stripes (or spots, whatever) I know that not only do towns change, people change, too. I know of some good people who have turned bad and some bad people who have turned good. Im sure there are a lot of people that are somewhere in the middle. People change, but what causes a change in the heart? Mentally, I dont feel any different than I did years ago but it has been pointed out that Ive changed over the years. Have I gotten meaner? More cynical? More soft? More ObservationsBy Mitch Traphagenmitch@observernews.net Observations: Cha-ch-ch-changesnaive? Less naive? I dont know. But apparently Ive changed and not every change has been for the better. Ive known people who have drifted apart after a mere two or three years of marriage. How could that happen? Ive met couples that have been married for seven decades who would never be apart from each other. A few years ago I had the honor of photographing one of the last remaining World War I veterans (there are none left today). He was well over 100 years old and his wife was 98. For the entire time I was with them, they never stopped holding hands. Surely in more than a century a person must change, right? So how does that work? Did his wife change with him or did she just accept his changes? Did they change together or did he not change at all? When I worked for the House of Representatives I had a private joke, somewhat gently paraphrased here, about how things could change for the esteemed members of the venerable institution. Someone would decide to run for office and be absolutely committed in his heart towards working to change America for the better, to serve this nation. But not long after, he would realize that in order to make the changes needed, he would need to be re-elected and in order to do that, he would need a lot more money and in order to get it, he would need to compromise some of his principles, just a little, here and there. And then he needed to be re-elected again and that brought on a few more compromises of his principles. That goes on for some time until one day, he excuses himself from dinner with his very nice family in his very nice townhouse in suburban DC, walks to his bathroom, turns on the light, looks MITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTOMy childhood and lifelong best friend in our hometown: He is making what he calls a touch connection to the towns lake. It serves as a reminder of his past and perhaps is a way to momentarily escape from lifes many changes. X in the mirror and finds himself in a cheap motel room with bloodshot eyes and a woman he doesnt know passed out in the background. And painfully, he realizes in that one miserable instance just how far he has strayed from his original, noble intentions. OK, so that doesnt really happen at least I hope not. But there have been enough scandals to suggest there is some truth to that: Senators playing footsie in airport bathrooms, Congressman hitting on young pages, and so on. Are these people bad people? Yes, on the surface its easy enough to say that. Were they always bad people? I dont think so. Are they

Wolfie loves to play with the other kittens at the shelter, and is quite a charmer, but he would like to come to live at a forever home of his own. Why not go see this handsome guy and give him that home. Wolfie has been neutered and microchipped and he is current on his shots DOB: Sepember 2, 2012. ChaseChase is a handsome Lab mix who was found with brother Rocky, abandoned on the streets of Ruskin. His rough start hasnt affected his love for people. Chase has started obedience training at the shelter and is doing great! He also knows how to retrieve balls. He would do best in a home with only older children. This speckled-nose pup deserves a second chance at a happy life. As part of Chases adoption, he has been neutered, microchipped, and brought current on his shots. DOB: December 2, 2011.Saturday morning started out over cast with a lingering drizzle of rain. It may have kept some bikers from attending the ride, but it seemed to fit the mood of the day. Beef OBradys in Apollo Beach served up a substantial buffet brunch for those who showed up. The coffee was hot and the bacon extra crisp. This was the starting point. The check in. And in groups of four, or six or however many, they wandered in, ready to ride. Kelly Kowall welcomed them to Project Corregidor the Ride for the Fallen. As the founder of My War riors Place in Ruskin, Kelly started this ride to honor her son and all the others who did not make it. After her remarks, she introduced the Gold Star Moms who had lost sons or daughters overseas. And then, we were humbled for the first time that day when the color guard entered. They were members of AVAST, the nations only color guard made up entirely of amputees, each prosthetic leg proudly displaying the insignia of their military branch. The men and women of this unit reminded us all that freedom is never free. Several bikers from the Latin Soldiers were on hand to escort the riders from Apollo Beach to Memorial Park in Tampa. As their Commander explained, the members of their club were soldiers first, Latino second. With four of them leading us off in front, and three more at the rear making sure we were escorted properly, the Latino Soldiers did an outstanding job of winding us through intersections and along I-75. On the sides of the roads were signs. Photos of fallen warriors with their names, ranks and units. Thirty of them in total, again reminding us of the cost of freedom. I was proud to have rounded up three veterans from my neighborhood. We didnt have motor cycles, so we rode in an SUV, still part of the motorcade. Still protected by the skillful herding of the Latin Soldiers. First the flags, then the vehicles carrying the Gold Star Moms, then the bikers, and then the rest of us. We took up the better part of half a mile, riding in honor of those 30 fallen soldiers. As we pulled into the memorial park, we saw a Gold Star Mom exit her vehicle, fall to her knees and kiss the photo of her son the last of the 30 signs. She looked way too young to have a son in the military. Way too young to have a son die for his country. Despite the rain, most of the riders went on to take part in the poker run a fundraiser for My Warriors Place. The rest of us left a lot more humbled than when we arrived. My three veterans and I stopped at the VFW before heading home. It felt so good to have been a part of this amazing ride. And as we left the VFW, we all noticed the sky had cleared, and it was a beautiful sunny south central Florida afternoon. Perfect weather for a ride.By Dana Dittmar, Executive Director SCC Chamber of Commerce You, me and business: A ride of reflection

Not necessar ily. In fact, probably not. In a state as crowded and fast growing as Florida, it is very easy to become embattled, to look at virtually everyone as the compe tition competition for space on the freeway or in line in the grocery store. It is easy to look at a hardworking elected official and think of them as a crook on the take. But that is really no way to go through life. I once read a book that suggested that we try to envision people as they put their socks on in the morning. It is a wholly innocent and entirely hu man act. There is no malice at that moment, when we are quietly just putting on our socks. At that mo ment, everyone is the same, just one of us trying to get by in life. We are all children of this earth I believe that we are all children of God. Some of us do bad things, some of us do good things, and some of us do both. But when it comes right down to it, we are all just struggling to make it through another day Observations: Cha-ch-ch-changes with as little pain as possible. Somebody might cut you off in traffic or appear rude in a store. But we dont know what may have happened did their child die? Is their child horribly ill? Has their spouse just been diagnosed with cancer? Have they just been diagnosed with cancer? It could be any of that. Of course it could also be that the person is just a jerk. But I prefer to believe that with the exception of a fairly well known few, we are all inherently decent. And as I get older and see more tragedy in life, Im more willing to err on the side of caution. If someone is a jerk, Ill try to smile and let it pass because for all I know they just lost a spouse or something equally horrible. It is often said that the only con stant in life is change. Im just not a fan of change. And today, Im facing changes that are unpleasant and sometimes heartbreaking. It is not always fun, but thats life. And even in that, there are always those moments moments that matter; moments that remind us that life is wonderful. But if you see me in line and I appear to be a jerk, Im sorry. I didnt mean to be a jerk. Theres just a lot going on right now. I think that could be true for a lot of us.

Brown cel ebrated the nationwide release of her two new chil dren’s books, Hi, God and Four Lucky Leaves where she imparts the importance of prayer and being different from everyone else. In Hi, God readers are intro duced to Louie who, when he de cides he wants to talk with God, finds himself stumbling over how to pray. He focuses so much on copying the different ways he has seen others pray with God that he forgets what he had want ed to say. What will Louie do? Brown teaches children it’s not how they pray but prayer itself that’s important in this new chil dren’s book. In Four Lucky Leaves a fourRiverview resident teaches spiritual and social lessons in new books leaf clover is bullied for be ing different, and he tries to change his ap pearance in or der to blend in. Will his new friend be able to help him realize that sometimes the only way to fit in is to stand out? Brown imparts the very impor tant lesson of individual differ ences and uniqueness in this new children’s book. Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the books are available through bookstores na tionwide, from the publisher at www.tatepublishing.com/book store, or by visiting barnesand noble.com or amazon.com. Brown works full-time as a le gal assistant and is a contributor for the Tampa Bay Moms Blog. She has an English degree from the University of South Florida. A chauffeur was being honored for his record of having driven for more than 45 years and never having an accident. “What’s your secret?” asked the Master of Ceremonies. Quickly he replied, “I stay away from dangerous places — places where accidents are likely to happen.” What great advice. All too often we find ourselves in places or situations where danger is awaiting us. Acting carelessly, we sometimes get into difficulties that present problems that we cannot solve or are forced to make decisions that exceed our experience. We can get great insight for living from God’s Word. The Bible puts it this way: “Hold on to whatever is really good. Steer clear of evil in any form.” The Bible will give us insight into dangers and the destructive nature of sin. It will help us see sin for what it is — an enticing, inviting, ensnaring, and easy path to self-destruction with no warning signs or signals. Visit us at: SowerMinistries.org. Hearing loop helps congregation at Prince of Peace This past summer Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Sun City Center installed a hearing loop in the church to assist those with hearing loss to hear more clearly during services. A hearing loop is an assistive listening system that transmits sound directly into one’s hearing aids or cochlear implants, rather than depending on sound coming from loudspeakers. To receive the loop signal, parishioners and guests must manually activate the T-coil or telephone setting in their devices. At 9 a.m. on Thursday, Nov. 21, representatives from Complete Hearing Solutions will make a presentation at the church about the new hearing loop system. Prince of Peace is located at 702 Valley Forge Blvd. in SCC.
