Age doesn't stop


actors from


showing'


their stuff

Just as the Thanksgiving Day leftovers
were being packed into refrigerators across
South County, one family in Apollo Beach
began lighting the way to Christmas. And
it involves some serious lighting more
than 100,000 lights in all; the set up for
which begins after Halloween and takes
five people three weeks to complete and
12 people on the first weekend.
James and Dottie Debusk decided to light
up their home for a good cause following
a health scare years ago. As part of the
display, they collect donations for the St.
Anne's Church outreach program in a lighted
mailbox on one comer of the property. All
proceeds collected go to St. Anne's Church.
Last year, they raised $1,000 funds
greatly needed.
The lights and Nativity scene are
choreographed to 17 different songs, each
of which takes up to 20 hours to program.
Visitors to the home, located at 486 Florida
Circle North, just off Flamingo in Apollo
Beach, can even enjoy the Christmas music
through their car's radio by tuning to 99.9
FM. The lights begin by 5:30 p.m. and run
until 9 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on
Friday and Saturday nights.
The display is so bright and beautiful that
it has even captured the attention of Santa
Claus who, according to James Debusk,
will be on site for children from 7:30 to 8:30
p.m. on December 21 and 22.
Debusk estimated that at least 100 cars
drove by on Thanksgiving evening. Happy
and healthy, he was out directing traffic,
hopefully taking in the joy he is giving to
so many.

Beach have been lighting up their home
for the past three years. In the process,

Church outreach program.


When they say "The show must go on,"
real actors mean it.
Like the U.S. Mail, actors across the world
appear in their scenes, through rain or sleet,
scorching heat or snow, no matter what else
is going on in their lives.
Sometimes, becoming the character is what
can keep a person going through even the
worst of times, said Jeanne Naish in an inter-
view in her Sun City Center home Nov. 26.
"The day my husband died, I called and
told Ed [Ed Brown, who was in charge of the
production she was working on at the time]
I would be there the next day. Of course, he
said that wasn't necessary, but it was to me. I
had to do it to keep going," she said.
That was during the rendition of the radio
show with George Burns and Gracie Allen in
October 2012.
Jeanne's husband Richard known lo-
cally as Dick was a highway engineer and
traveled all over the world, so Jeanne got
to act in Europe and Asia as well as in the
States.
But she had been doing variety shows,
singing, acting and doing skits long before
they met.

many years at the Tampa Theater, who also
lived in Sun City Center, and who she knew

Boaters back call for mandatory water safety education


* By KEVIN BRADY
kevin@observernews.net
A basic boating course would improve
safety on local waterways, according to ex-
perienced local boaters.
The state legislature is to consider a pro-
posal from St. Petersburg State Representa-
tive Dwight Dudley who wants some level
of basic safety training for anyone operating
a vessel in Florida.
Currently, Florida law requires anyone
born after Jan. 1, 1988 to complete a Nation-
al Association of State Boating Law Admin-
istrators-approved boating education course
or to have passed a course equivalency or
temporary certificate examination. The law
applies to boats and personal watercraft.
More training sounds reasonable to Vic
Granowicz, owner of Lands End Marina. The
business rents boat slips and repairs vessels.
"I know there are some people who are not


very well trained and are just trying to figure
it out on their own. More training would lead
to fewer accidents," said Granowicz, who has
owned the Apollo Beach-based business for 15
years.
Florida is, by far, the national leader in boat
accidents as well as deaths and injuries related
to boating.
There were 704 boating accidents and 55
fatalities in Florida last year, according to the
U.S. Coast Guard Safety Division. It's safe to
assume there were more than that since the fig-
ures only count accidents that cause more than
$2,000 in damage.
Jerry Foster has been working at Little Har-
bor Marina in Ruskin for 20 years and boating
for more than 30.
"It's probably a good idea," said Foster,
owner of a 46-foot trawler. "It would probably
lead to less accidents, injuries and deaths."
Too many people buy a boat and take off in it


immediately like it's a car," Foster said. "But
that's just not what it is. I see some crazy
things go on. Go to a boat ramp like Sim-
mons Park or Williams Park. That's where
you will see the need for some basic boating
training."
Without any training, novices are some-
times lost, Foster said.
"The rules of the road and navigation are
very important in boats as well as knowing
just how the boat works. A lot of people just
don't know the rules."
While he believes boaters need to be
trained, Foster is wary of more government
bureaucracy.
"There are a lot of free boating courses
out there, like the ones offered by the Coast
Guard Auxiliary. The problem is that the
general public doesn't know about them. We

Q: What are Floaters?
A: Floaters are tiny clumps of debris or gel that are suspended
within the vitreous, the clear jelly-like fluid that fills the inside
cavity of the eye. They can take on different shapes and are often
described as floating dots, specks, or thread-like cobwebs.
Q: What causes Floaters?
A: Floaters are part of the natural aging process. As we mature,
the vitreous gel shrinks and pulls away from the retina, forming
floaters in the process. Floaters can also occur after an injury,


surgery, or can be an early symptom of a retinal detachment.
Q: How are Floaters treated?
A: Although annoying, most floaters are not usually sight threatening
and do not generally require treatment. Often they will even fade with
time. But the sudden appearance of new floaters is a signal to have an
eye exam as soon as possible. I can then determine whether it is
harmless or the beginning of a more serious problem. If a small
retinal tear has occurred, for example, a laser treatment can usually
repair the damage successfully.

For Showmen, quiet acts of charity are everyday business
The lISA will make Christmas a little brighter for special needs children in the area with a party on Dec. 9.


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
For a group of people known
as ,hi i" min," you'd think they
would publicize everything they
do. But when it comes to chari-
table acts, the showmen are much
less show and much more do. Day
in and day out throughout the year,
they go about the compassionate
business of making lives better in
and around their community, often
without saying a word. They do it
because they care.
Such is the case with an upcom-
ing Christmas party the organiza-
tion will hold on Dec. 9 for 320
special needs children from area
schools. Each child will receive
fruit, cookies and other treats
and have the opportunity to meet
Santa and Mrs. Claus. Each child
will also leave with their very own
bag of gifts. And not even the bus
drivers, responsible for transport-
ing the children from area schools,
will be forgotten. The showmen
will provide coffee and donuts for
them. And, of course, there will be
entertainment. Showmen certainly
know how to put on a show.
The International Indepen-


dent Showmen's Association, or
lISA, organizes numerous events
throughout the year for charitable
purposes, the most notable being
their annual circus at the beginning
of January that draws thousands of
visitors, with proceeds going to lo-
cal and national charities. Accord-
ing to organizer Betty Tanner, the
children's Christmas party began
years ago with a group known as
the Mullet Heads, with the origi-
nal members of the group catching
mullet and holding fish fries and
other various fundraisers. Before
long, they had the money in their
treasury to begin making a dif-
ference in the community. They
began by reaching out to special
needs students at Eisenhower Mid-
dle School and every year since,
the event has grown bigger and has
included more schools. The event
has since fallen under the umbrella
of the IISA's Showmen's Associa-
tion Charities Corporation.
This year, with 320 children ex-
pected to attend, organizers have
put together 350 large gift bags,
just in case additional children
show up. They absolutely could not
stand the thought of a child leaving


without gifts of their own. They
know all too well that for some of
the children, that bag may contain
the only gifts they will receive this
Christmas.
"This is one of the biggest and
most rewarding events that is held
at the IISA," Betty Tanner said.


"Just to see the children have such
an enjoyable time. They are always
so appreciative of everything."
Some children send thank you
notes, which are greatly appreci-
ated by everyone involved at the
IISA.
The party will be held at the


Showmen's Club at 6915 Riv-
erview Dr. on Monday, Dec. 9 at
10 a.m. If you or an organization
to which you belong feel as though
you can help with donations for
the party, call the IISA at 813-677-
3590 to be put in touch with one of
the party organizers.

Why Our Patients Choose Us
Glenn's hearing problem began when he was in his late forties, and now in his
late eighties he is profoundly deaf. We have purchased"State of the Art"aids, of all
different makes, about every two to three years since he began wearing aids.They
helped only marginally and after the last "State of the Art" aids his hearing had
diminished to the point where conversation wasn't possible even with the aids.
It was quite by accident that we found you. You were kind, courteous and more
importantly VERY KNOWLEDGEABLE. When Glenn was fitted with the [new] aids,
you can imagine our surprise and delight when we found HE COULD HEAR AGAIN.
We want everyone to know about you. We opted for top of the line, very powerful
aids and can't believe how they have changed our lives.
We whole heartily can and do recommend your office to anyone who has a
hearing loss. The aids, as well as your caring and excellent service, have been a
blessing for us.
-Gratefully, Glenn and Maureen

need to become more aggressive on
the need to get training."
Hillsborough County rounds out
the top 10 counties in Florida for
boating accidents, according to the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC).
May and June are the worst months
for accidents with most occurring in
a bay or sound, not the ocean. Of all
the 704 boating accidents reported in
Florida last year, 44 percent involved
collisions with other boats or fixed
objects.
Adding weight to the theory that
lack of boater education plays a part
in many accidents, 55 percent of the
operators involved in Florida boat-
ing accidents last year had no boater
education, according to the FWC
report. Of the 59 operators involved
in fatal boating accidents last year in
Florida, 71 percent had no boating
education.


Rodger Willis of Ruskin's Shell
Point Marina has been boating for
30 years and believes more training
for novice boaters can only improve
safety on local waters.
"I think everyone needs to at least
take a U.S. Coast Guard exam before
they even set foot on a boat. It's a
little like driving a car, you need to
have some kind of common knowl-
edge."
U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary flo-
tillas offer regular boating safety
courses.

Positive Talk Leader or follower?


The art of leadership is not eas-
ily defined because it is not one, but
rather a series of attributes. To define
it, we must look at human attributes
which, when put together, make up


all else. They realize that when all is said
and done, the only thing a person has of
lasting value in this world is the trust
placed in him by his fellowman. Fol-
lowers, on the other hand, are quick to

make a leader are numer- A leader takes responsibility


ous, it is not possible to
cover all of them in this space. How-
ever, I will share some thoughts as to
what makes some people leaders.
Vision is a primary leadership at-
tribute. Matthew 15:14 says, 'They
be blind leaders of the blind. And if
the blind lead the blind, both shall fall
into the ditch." It's not enough just to
see what is one must be able to see
what might be possible. Followers can
rarely see past right now and are more
often than not blind to possibilities.
Personal improvement is a hall-
mark of a leader. Leaders rarely com-
pare themselves to others, but rather
set their own standards for achieve-
ment. In their minds, i lI.\ liiiik. "I'm
good, but not as good as I CAN be."
On the other hand, followers let oth-
ers set their standards. They compare
themselves to those around them, and
as a result they either become vain
or disheartened. In their minds, they
think, "I'm as good as most, and not
as bad as some." To them, this is a
high enough standard. As a result of
the way they think, leaders challenge
themselves to grow; followers wal-
low in mediocrity.
One of my favorite writers, Miguel
de Cervantes, in his book, Don Quix-
ote, made the statement, "An honest
man's word is as good as his bond."So,
too, is the word of a leader; a leader's
word is his bond. Once you have a lead-
er's word, you have total commitment.
They treasure their word above almost
fim mm mm mm mm m m


for that which goes wrong
and is unafraid to say, Ii h i- &i fault."
Harry Truman, who, in my opinion,
had many qualities of leadership, ex-
hibited this ability to take responsibility
by having on his desk a sign that said:
The buck stops here. With followers,
the buck never seems to stop. They just
know that whatever went wrong wasn't
their fault, and they spend much of their


energy trying to find someone else to
blame.
Finally, British author George Row-
el said, 'The high sentiments always
win in the end; the leaders who offer
blood, toil, tears and sweat always
get more out of their followers than
those who offer safety and a good
time. When it comes to the pinch, hu-
man beings are heroic." Leaders ask
for much and get it. Followers ask for
little and get it.
To the extent that you are able to,
have a sense of future. Set standards
for yourself rather than live by com-
parisons to others. Honor your word
even to the point of personal pain or

Rash of car burglaries urges

extra caution during holidays


* By PENNY FLETCHER
penny@observernews.net
Around 2 a.m. on Nov. 26 some
teenagers in the Summerfield
development say they started
hearing car alarms go off.
The next morning at least six
people living in the southwest
section of the development -
mostly on Laraway Drive -
reported having had their cars
broken into.
Since I live on Laraway Drive
and these people are my neigh-
bors, I know the information in
this story is true but I have prom-
ised not to use their names.
By 7 a.m. Hillsborough County
Sheriff's Office deputies be-
gan going from house to house.
Deputy Mike Massimei was the
first on the scene.
People were pointing to open
spots in their dashboards where
radios and GPS systems had been
removed.
Others lost items including
iPods, wallets, digital cameras,
and in one case, a wallet with
credit cards and personal
identification. All these things had
been left in their cars.
Due to the general safety of the
neighborhood, Neighborhood
Watch, private security and
people who work night shifts
so that cars move around on the
streets at all hours of the day and
night, people just felt too safe.
"There weren't any forced
entries," said Debbie Carter,
spokeswoman for the sheriff's
office. "People had left their cars
unlocked."
Those of us who park inside


garages had no problem, only
those who leave their cars in their
driveways overnight.
Lt. Howard Wooden said one
15-year-old juvenile who lives in
the neighborhood was arrested
and charged with six counts of
auto burglary and one count of
grand theft auto.
The grand theft auto was
because he drove a Kia from a
driveway and later abandoned
it in a parking lot on the comer
of Big Bend Road and U.S. 301,
Wooden said.
Because of his age the juvenile
has been released to his parents.
"We have two other suspects,"
said Carter. Naturally, since the
investigation is ongoing, and the
one person already charged is
under 18, no details are available
for print at this time.
But Carter points out that crimes
like this are easily preventable by
locking cars and never leaving
anything on the seat that looks
worth breaking into to get.
Just covering something with an
old newspaper in a parking lot can
help if there is no way to get an
item in the trunk, she said.
The sheriff's office has a list of
"Safe Shopping Tips" on its web-
site for the holiday season. It may
be found by visiting http://www.
hcso.tampa.fl.us/, then clicking
on the Happy Holiday Shopping
(green tree) in the center of the
page. The direct link to that page

I w .K u f m n E eI n* Iu e c oI


This edition of The Post from June 20, 1942, is still in remarkably
good shape and kept in a storage box with thousands of clippings.
The single photo on the second page is of Jeanne with the late Rosa
Rio, who shows there that she was a bit older than Jeanne, who is
the younger girl on the right.


Age doesn't stop actor
1 Continued from page 1 ____________


Sshe knew had two daughters who
were concert pianists. The girl's
mother felt Jeanne had talent and
took her to an audition, where she
sang, and got a part.
"It was so funny, my mother re-
ally didn't know or expect any-
thing. I sang 'When I Grow too Old
to Dream' at three."
So Jeanne began performing on
variety shows all over New York,
starting with Milton Cross and
Madge Tucker's Coast to Coast on
a Bus, and the Kate Smith Hour.
Following those, the parts were
many and after awhile, she began
to have trouble keeping up her at-
tendance in school.
'They were nice about it until
junior high, when a math teacher
would say 'oh, there's our visitor'
when I would go to class. I always
thought that was mean."
So she began to attend Mrs. Mur-
ray's home school program where
the children were often absent
because of acting and other-type
commitments.
"I loved the small group setting
and went there from about 7th
grade through high school," she
said.
It was during those years that
she met the great stars of the day.
Those that made a special impres-
sion on her were Tallulah Bank-
head, Al Jolson, and especially
Don Ameche, who she said was as
down-to-earth and i...ii.ii person"
as if he was not a movie star.
But when asked "what do you
remember as a 'grand moment,' she
said, "I was doing 'Old Kentucky
Home' on the Kate Smith Hour
with Don Ameche and Al Jolson
and Don brought me out in front
of the audience and we took a bow
together. I was only about 6 or 7. It
was such a sweet thing to do."
Another grand moment' came
when she was crossing the street at
the corner of Madison Avenue from
CBS to NBC yes, she worked
for both and Helen Hayes rolled
down the window of her chauf-
feured car and asked if she wanted
a ride.
Later in life, while traveling, she
did "film dubbing" in Spain and
in New York, which meant she
worked behind the scenes work-
ing with transferring the lines from
another language to English.
'That was really fun," she said.
"It was funny, because the mouths
didn't always match when an
English word was substituted for
another language, but we did the
best we could."
Another thing she was accom-
plished at was doing two duplicate
shows. In the 1930s through the
1950s they didn't tape shows, so
they had to be performed twice,
once for the Eastern audience and


again for the West.
While in Ecuador much later in
life, she did Mary-Mary, taking the
part of Mary.
"Oh, I was Mary," she said,
laughing brightly. "I realized while
doing the part that Mary in the
play always did or said things she
shouldn't, and that's what I did in
life. I told myself, 'you have to
learn to keep that big mouth shut!'
Playing Mary-Mary taught me a lot
about myself."
During her years in New York,
she also did "movie shorts," which
were moving pictures that lasted
about 30 minutes, sort of like many
television shows do now.
After her husband retired, they
moved to Sun City Center in 1999.
One day, she was in the Sun City
Center Laundromat in the plaza and
saw an advertisement about Rosa
Rio playing locally.
"I wondered if it was the Rosa
Rio I knew from New York," she
said.
She called her, and after a long
conversation, the two recalled
particular things like the day
they had a malted milk together as
teenagers.
Since moving to Florida she has
been involved with the Performing
Arts Company and with other pro-
ductions, working with Ed Brown,
John Bowker and Lew Ressiguie.
Now 81, she is preparing for
Happy Holidays with George and
Gracie Dec. 12, 13 and 14 at St.
John the Divine Episcopal Church
on E. Del Webb Boulevard in Sun
City Center. Tickets are available
in advance at the church and at the
door, if there are any left, she said.
Acting has given her a wonderful
life, she said.
"In hard times, like after my hus-
band died, I told Ed, I'll be there.
And I want you to make me laugh."
Then there are times when she
has to cry on demand.
"I found that was easy," she said.
'The first time I did it though, it
was accidental. But now I can do it
when I am asked."
Jeanne has one daughter, Kathy,
who lives in New Jersey, and four
grandchildren. Her smile is bright,
her memories seem perfectly intact
down to the smallest detail. And
her life, she says, is still full of hap-
piness and promise.

On a beautiful November

day, a quiet season

comes to an end
The 2013 hurricane season came to an end on Nov.
30. Despite that no hurricanes have hit Florida in eight
years, officials urge residents to not become complacent.


* By MITCH TRAPHAGEN
mitch@observernews.net
The 2013 hurricane season end-
ed on Saturday, and it is likely that
few people noticed. It was a bright,
sunny and blissfully cool day. And
for some emergency managers,
that is cause for concern.
Florida hasn't been hit by a hur-
ricane since 2005. In the past eight
years, tens of thousands of people
have moved into the Tampa Bay
area with no idea what a tropical
cyclone can do. In the past eight
years, even longtime Floridians
have had ample opportunity to
become complacent about storms.
No one in state or county
emergency management wants a
hurricane to hit. But at the same
time, they fear that the public is
forgetting all about hurricanes. It
only takes one to create a catas-
trophe.
Despite that the 2013 hurricane
season seemed to come and go
without much notice in the Tampa
Bay area, the season was an inter-
esting and unusual one it was
a season that almost completely
defied the forecasts.
The season saw 13 named
storms, which was slightly above
the average of 11 named storms
in a typical season. But that is one
of the few areas where 2013 was
above normal. Only two hur-
ricanes formed, Humberto and
Ingrid, both in September, and that
is well below the nearly six storms
in an average season. Only Ingrid
made landfall on the northern Gulf
coast of Mexico.
There were no major hurricanes
this year, something that has not
occurred since 1994, and was also
well below the average of nearly
three per season. Among the many


metrics the National Hurricane
Center uses is one known as the
Accumulated Cyclone Energy. The
ACE value this year was the low-
est it has been in nearly 20 years
and, according to the NHC, was
67 percent lower than the 1981 to
2010 seasonal averages.
This year also tied a long-
standing record for the latest first
hurricane.
Only one storm, Andrea, which
formed on June 5, had a slight
impact on the Tampa Bay area,
making landfall well north as a
tropical storm. The last storm,
Melissa, dissipated on Nov. 22
without making landfall.
The original forecasts called for
a much more active season. And
that is becoming a concern for
emergency officials.
"Complacency becomes the real
threat with a slower than predicted
season," said Florida Division of
Emergency Management Director
Bryan Koon. 'The last hurricane
to make landfall in Florida was
in 2005. The last eight years have
seen an influx of new residents,
who may have experienced a
tropical storm and believe that
this event is the same in intensity
as an actual hurricane. Memories
also tend to fade with the passage
of time between events, so even
lifelong residents become com-
placent in their preparedness. We
cannot emphasize enough how
important it is to remain prepared
and vigilant."
Emergency managers in Hills-
borough County and across the
state have no desire to see a disas-
ter. So they hope for the best and
prepare for the worst. But even
with the end of hurricane season,

Did you have to cook for a big
family on Thanksgiving this
year? The crew at Beanie's
Sports Bar in Ruskin knows how
you feel they were up early on
Thanksgiving morning cooking
for their extended family. Bean-
ie's delivered 900 Thanksgiving
meals to three area churches
on Thanksgiving Day. Many of
the recipients of their generos-
ity would otherwise have been
alone this Thanksgiving. When
asked if he'd like his photo taken
for the newspaper, Beanie just
smiled and said no. "I don't do
this for the publicity," he added.
For those of us with so much to
be thankful for, perhaps it would
be fitting to add one more: stop-
ping by to thank a selfless man
for making this community a
better place to live.

Volunteers at the Ruskin United Methodist Church take a moment
to pose on Thanksgiving Day as they prepare meals for 400 visi-
tors, meals provided by Beanie's. Beanie's also provided meals to
the Sun City Center United Methodist Church and Northside Baptist
Church.

Hurricane season ends
0 Continued from page 20


that doesn't mean the threat of
dangerous weather is over.
"Florida was fortunate to make it
through another hurricane season
without significant damage from
a storm," said Koon. "The models
projected an active hurricane
season this year. Many people
believe all severe weather threats
disappear at the end of hurricane
season. Floridians and visitors
must remember the other threats
that exist, such as severe weather,
flooding and wildfires."
There were a number of fac-
tors that contributed to this year
being relatively quiet, despite the
forecast for an active season. One
of the chief factors was dust from
the Saharan Desert that produced
dry air conditions in the Eastern
Atlantic. That is not something
easily predicted, nor should it be
counted on to be a factor next
year. The same goes for East Coast
weather patterns over the summer
that helped to keep storms from
making landfall.
The quiet 2013 hurricane season
ended without incident on a
beautiful and cool day last week.
Next year, however, could be an
entirely different story. Despite


that the state hasn't experienced a
hurricane in years, they are a way
of life in Florida and, as such, life
must be prepared to adapt.

Academy in Newport, R.I. before
joining the U.S. Army in 1945. He was
a veteran of VWWII and Korea, where he
earned two Bronze Stars and achieved
a rank of Master Sergeant. He was
honorably discharged from the Army in
October 1952. After this, he worked at
the Naval Base in Newport, R.I. in the

After the war Chuck completed his

he enjoyed. Perhaps his greatest
pleasures were summers spent at
Nonquitt, Massachusetts, on Buzzards
Bay, where he had gone since
childhood; swimming, golfing and most
of all visits from children, grandchildren
and extended family in New England.
A generous man, Chuck gave to the
charities dear to his heart. Donations

Introducing Butterfly.
A new kind of discreet protection for accidental boweL Leakage (ABL).
New Butterfly Body Liners fit comfortably and discreetly in the buttocks, providing secure
protection from accidental bowel leakage (ABL). Consumer studies show that women who
use Butterfly feel more confident and protected going about their day. That's because
with its absorbent core, odor shield and stay-fast wings, Butterfly adheres securely and
invisibly in the buttocks, giving you a new kind of protection you can count on.
Be confident. Be brave. Be Butterfly.


Butterfly wouldn't be possible without the many women who inspired it.
Renee is an actual Butterfly user and has been compensated for her appearance here.

The signs of varicose veins aren't
always obvious. Even if you don't
see veins on the surface of your
legs, there's a good chance your
discomfort is a symptom of vein
disease. Half of all men and
women over 50 are affected by
a vein problem. And without
intervention, the problem will
only get worse. Fortunately, the
solution is a simple one.
Here's all that's
standing between
you and healthier,
younger-looking legs:
All veins have valves. Healthy
valves keep blood flowing only
upward and support the weight
of the column of blood. When

varicose veins are hidden. Tired,

See page 21. The 2013 hurricane season came and went without much fanfare. Officials say not to become complacent. See page 20. One Apollo Beach family lights the way to Christmas MITCH T TRAPHAGEN PPHOTOSJames and Dottie Debusk of Apollo Beach have been lighting up their home for the past three years. In the process, they collect donations for the St. Annes Church outreach program. By %  MITCH TRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netJust as the Thanksgiving Day leftovers were being packed into refrigerators across South County, one family in Apollo Beach began lighting the way to Christmas. And it involves some serious lighting more than 100,000 lights in all; the set up for which begins after Halloween and takes five people three weeks to complete and 12 people on the first weekend. James and Dottie Debusk decided to light up their home for a good cause following a health scare years ago. As part of the display, they collect donations for the St. Annes Church outreach program in a lighted mailbox on one corner of the property. All proceeds collected go to St. Annes Church. Last year, they raised $1,000 funds greatly needed. The lights and Nativity scene are choreographed to 17 different songs, each of which takes up to 20 hours to program. Visitors to the home, located at 486 Florida Circle North, just off Flamingo in Apollo Beach, can even enjoy the Christmas music through their cars radio by tuning to 99.9 FM. The lights begin by 5:30 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. on weekdays and 10 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights. The display is so bright and beautiful that it has even captured the attention of Santa Claus who, according to James Debusk, will be on site for children from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on December 21 and 22. Debusk estimated that at least 100 cars drove by on Thanksgiving evening. Happy and healthy, he was out directing traffic, hopefully taking in the joy he is giving to so many.Age doesnt stop actors from showin their stuffBy %  PENNY FETCHER penny@observernews.netWhen they say The show must go on, real actors mean it. Like the U.S. Mail, actors across the world appear in their scenes, through rain or sleet, scorching heat or snow, no matter what else is going on in their lives. Sometimes, becoming the character is what can keep a person going through even the worst of times, said Jeanne Naish in an interview in her Sun City Center home Nov. 26. The day my husband died, I called and told Ed [Ed Brown, who was in charge of the production she was working on at the time] I would be there the next day. Of course, he said that wasnt necessary, but it was to me. I had to do it to keep going, she said. That was during the rendition of the radio show with George Burns and Gracie Allen in October 2012. Jeannes husband Richard known locally as Dick was a highway engineer and traveled all over the world, so Jeanne got to act in Europe and Asia as well as in the States. But she had been doing variety shows, singing, acting and doing skits long before they met. Growing up in New York City, a woman Continued on page 17X Jeanne Naish has been performing on stage since she was 3-years-old and doesnt intend to stop now. Reviewing some of her clippings, Jeanne talks about some of the famous actors she has met over the years and shows photos of herself with the late Rosa Rio, organist for many years at the Tampa Theater, who also lived in Sun City Center, and who she knew as a teen. PENNPENNY FLETCHERETCHER PHOTOPHOTO Boaters back call for mandatory water safety education By %  KeEVinIN BraRADyY kevin@observernews.netA basic boating course would improve safety on local waterways, according to experienced local boaters. The state legislature is to consider a proposal from St. Petersburg State Representative Dwight Dudley who wants some level of basic safety training for anyone operating a vessel in Florida. Currently, Florida law requires anyone born after Jan. 1, 1988 to complete a National Association of State Boating Law Administrators-approved boating education course or to have passed a course equivalency or temporary certificate examination. The law applies to boats and personal watercraft.More training sounds reasonable to Vic Granowicz, owner of Lands End Marina. The business rents boat slips and repairs vessels.I know there are some people who are not very well trained and are just trying to figure it out on their own. More training would lead to fewer accidents, said Granowicz, who has owned the Apollo Beach-based business for 15 years. Florida is, by far, the national leader in boat accidents as well as deaths and injuries related to boating. There were 704 boating accidents and 55 fatalities in Florida last year, according to the U.S. Coast Guard Safety Division. Its safe to assume there were more than that since the figures only count accidents that cause more than $2,000 in damage. Jerry Foster has been working at Little Harbor Marina in Ruskin for 20 years and boating for more than 30. Its probably a good idea, said Foster, owner of a 46-foot trawler.  It would probably lead to less accidents, injuries and deaths. Too many people buy a boat and take off in it immediately like its a car, Foster said. But thats just not what it is. I see some crazy things go on. Go to a boat ramp  like Simmons Park or Williams Park. Thats where you will see the need for some basic boating training. Without any training, novices are sometimes lost, Foster said. The rules of the road and navigation are very important in boats as well as knowing just how the boat works. A lot of people just dont know the rules. While he believes boaters need to be trained, Foster is wary of more government bureaucracy. There are a lot of free boating courses out there, like the ones offered by the Coast Guard Auxiliary. The problem is that  the general public doesnt know about them. We Continued on page 3X

For Showmen, quiet acts of charity are everyday businessBy MITCH TRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netFor a group of people known as showmen, youd think they would publicize everything they do. But when it comes to charitable acts, the showmen are much less show and much more do. Day in and day out throughout the year, they go about the compassionate business of making lives better in and around their community, often without saying a word. They do it because they care. Such is the case with an upcoming Christmas party the organization will hold on Dec. 9 for 320 special needs children from area schools. Each child will receive fruit, cookies and other treats and have the opportunity to meet Santa and Mrs. Claus. Each child will also leave with their very own bag of gifts. And not even the bus drivers, responsible for transporting the children from area schools, will be forgotten. The showmen will provide coffee and donuts for them. And, of course, there will be entertainment. Showmen certainly know how to put on a show. The International Independent Showmens Association, or IISA, organizes numerous events throughout the year for charitable purposes, the most notable being their annual circus at the beginning of January that draws thousands of visitors, with proceeds going to local and national charities. According to organizer Betty Tanner, the childrens Christmas party began years ago with a group known as the Mullet Heads, with the original members of the group catching mullet and holding fish fries and other various fundraisers. Before long, they had the money in their treasury to begin making a difference in the community. They began by reaching out to special needs students at Eisenhower Middle School and every year since, the event has grown bigger and has included more schools. The event has since fallen under the umbrella of the IISAs Showmens Association Charities Corporation. This year, with 320 children expected to attend, organizers have put together 350 large gift bags, just in case additional children show up. They absolutely could not stand the thought of a child leaving MITCH TRAPHAGEN FILE PHOTOShowmen dedicate their lives to making children of all ages smile. On Dec. 9, they help to make Christmas brighter for 320 area special needs students during a childrens party at the Showmens Club without gifts of their own. They know all too well that for some of the children, that bag may contain the only gifts they will receive this Christmas. This is one of the biggest and most rewarding events that is held at the IISA, Betty Tanner said. Just to see the children have such an enjoyable time. They are always so appreciative of everything. Some children send thank you notes, which are greatly appreciated by everyone involved at the IISA. The party will be held at the Showmens Club at 6915 Riverview Dr. on Monday, Dec. 9 at 10 a.m. If you or an organization to which you belong feel as though you can help with donations for the party, call the IISA at 813-6773590 to be put in touch with one of the party organizers.

May and June are the worst months for accidents with most occurring in a bay or sound, not the ocean. Of all the 704 boating accidents reported in Florida last year, 44 percent involved collisions with other boats or fixed objects. Adding weight to the theory that lack of boater education plays a part in many accidents, 55 percent of the operators involved in Florida boating accidents last year had no boater education, according to the FWC report. Of the 59 operators involved in fatal boating accidents last year in Florida, 71 percent had no boating education. Rodger Willis of Ruskin’s Shell Point Marina has been boating for 30 years and believes more training for novice boaters can only improve safety on local waters. “I think everyone needs to at least take a U.S. Coast Guard exam before they even set foot on a boat. It’s a little like driving a car, you need to have some kind of common knowledge.” U.S. Coast Guard Auxiliary flotillas offer regular boating safety courses. For more information on Flotilla 75, based in Ruskin, or Flotilla 74, based in Brandon, call 877-242-8975 or visit the local tinyurl.com/observer-uscgaux. The flotillas also have Facebook pages.

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 The art of leadership is not easily defined because it is not one, but rather a series of attributes. To define it, we must look at human attributes which, when put together, make up that quality we call leadership. Further, it is important to look at what leadership is; and, to get a complete picture, it is equally important to look at what it is not. Because the traits that combine to make a leader are numer ous, it is not possible to cover all of them in this space. However, I will share some thoughts as to what makes some people leaders. Vision is a primary leadership attribute. Matthew 15:14 says, They be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch. Its not enough just to see what is one must be able to see what might be possible. Followers can rarely see past right now and are more often than not blind to possibilities. Personal improvement is a hallmark of a leader. Leaders rarely compare themselves to others, but rather set their own standards for achievement. In their minds, they think, Im good, but not as good as I CAN be. On the other hand, followers let others set their standards. They compare themselves to those around them, and as a result they either become vain or disheartened. In their minds, they think, Im as good as most, and not as bad as some. To them, this is a high enough standard. As a result of the way they think, leaders challenge themselves to grow; followers wallow in mediocrity. One of my favorite writers, Miguel de Cervantes, in his book, Don Quixote, made the statement, An honest mans word is as good as his bond. So, too, is the word of a leader; a leaders word is his bond. Once you have a leaders word, you have total commitment. They treasure their word above almost By William Hodges all else. They realize that when all is said and done, the only thing a person has of lasting value in this world is the trust placed in him by his fellowman. Followers, on the other hand, are quick to make promises and slow to keep them. Many times they really intend to keep these promises, but, for some reason, they can always justify a change of heart. A leader accepts failure as a price to be paid for ultimate success. A leader takes responsibility for that which goes wrong and is unafraid to say, It was my fault. Harry Truman, who, in my opinion, had many qualities of leadership, exhibited this ability to take responsibility by having on his desk a sign that said: The buck stops here. With followers, the buck never seems to stop. They just know that whatever went wrong wasnt their fault, and they spend much of their energy trying to find someone else to blame. Finally, British author George Rowel said, The high sentiments always win in the end; the leaders who offer blood, toil, tears and sweat always get more out of their followers than those who offer safety and a good time. When it comes to the pinch, human beings are heroic. Leaders ask for much and get it. Followers ask for little and get it. To the extent that you are able to, have a sense of future. Set standards for yourself rather than live by comparisons to others. Honor your word even to the point of personal pain or Positive Talk: Leader or follower?loss. Treat failure as a natural consequence of trying, and trust people to rise to greatness. To what extent will you achieve that elusive quality we call leadership?Hodges is a nationally recognized speaker, trainer and syndicated columnist.

Shell Point Rd. in Ruskin. According to Phillip Goodchild, LHS drama teacher, the play has a cast of more than 50 students as well as the generous support of the Sun City Center sewing club, the Sew n Sews, backdrops for various scenes painted by the LHS Art Club and art teacher Aaron Bowers, and some donated costumes from the Sun City Center Methodist Church. This musical production represents our most coordinated effort yet with the Ruskin community, and we are delighted to have the support of the Sew n Sews as well as creative work from our own art department and, of course, our parents and students, said Goodchild. Cristian Torres, a very talented LHS senior, will be playing piano as accompaniment throughout the show. Also, our cast includes about 30 young students from Apollo Beach and Cypress Creek Elementary schools who will play Munchkins under the direction of Ms. Holly Talley. Ms. Ashley Hoffman, an LHS social studies teacher, also donated her time with rehearsals. We are very for tunate to have had the support of many individuals and groups, including the LHS Drama Booster Club and the Community Foundation of Sun City Center, which gave us a generous grant several years ago for sound equipment. I hope that the community comes out and enjoys the show. Performances of The Wizard of Oz, a musical will be Thursday and Friday, Dec. 12 and 13, at 7 p.m. with a Saturday matinee on Dec. 14 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 for adults and $5 for students, with children under five free.

RIVERVIEWRash of car burglaries urges extra caution during holidaysBy PENNY FLETCHER penny@observernews.netAround 2 a.m. on Nov. 26 some teenagers in the Summerfield development say they started hearing car alarms go off. The next morning at least six people living in the southwest section of the development mostly on Laraway Drive reported having had their cars broken into. Since I live on Laraway Drive and these people are my neigh bors, I know the information in this story is true but I have prom ised not to use their names. By 7 a.m. Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office deputies be gan going from house to house. Deputy Mike Massimei was the first on the scene. People were pointing to open spots in their dashboards where radios and GPS systems had been removed. Others lost items including iPods, wallets, digital cameras, and in one case, a wallet with credit cards and personal identification. All these things had been left in their cars. Due to the general safety of the neighborhood, Neighborhood Watch, private security and people who work night shifts so that cars move around on the streets at all hours of the day and night, people just felt too safe. There werent any forced entries, said Debbie Carter, spokeswoman for the sheriffs office. People had left their cars unlocked. Those of us who park inside garages had no problem, only those who leave their cars in their driveways overnight. Lt. Howard Wooden said one 15-year-old juvenile who lives in the neighborhood was arrested and charged with six counts of auto burglary and one count of grand theft auto. The grand theft auto was because he drove a Kia from a driveway and later abandoned it in a parking lot on the corner of Big Bend Road and U.S. 301, Wooden said. Because of his age the juvenile has been released to his parents. We have two other suspects, said Carter. Naturally, since the investigation is ongoing, and the one person already charged is under 18, no details are available for print at this time. But Carter points out that crimes like this are easily preventable by locking cars and never leaving anything on the seat that looks worth breaking into to get. Just covering something with an old newspaper in a parking lot can help if there is no way to get an item in the trunk, she said.

OEIPEIL 50%*Off AllUnitsEXP 12/31/13 she knew had two daughters who were concert pianists. The girls mother felt Jeanne had talent and took her to an audition, where she sang, and got a part. It was so funny, my mother really didnt know or expect anything. I sang When I Grow too Old to Dream at three. So Jeanne began performing on variety shows all over New York, starting with Milton Cross and Madge Tuckers Coast to Coast on a Bus, and the Kate Smith Hour. Following those, the parts were many and after awhile, she began to have trouble keeping up her attendance in school. They were nice about it until junior high, when a math teacher would say oh, theres our visitor when I would go to class. I always thought that was mean. So she began to attend Mrs. Mur rays home school program where the children were often absent because of acting and other-type commitments. I loved the small group setting and went there from about 7th grade through high school, she said. It was during those years that she met the great stars of the day. Those that made a special impression on her were Tallulah Bankhead, Al Jolson, and especially Don Ameche, who she said was as down-to-earth and regular person as if he was not a movie star. But when asked what do you remember as a grand moment, she said, I was doing Old Kentucky Home on the Kate Smith Hour with Don Ameche and Al Jolson and Don brought me out in front of the audience and we took a bow together. I was only about 6 or 7. It was such a sweet thing to do. Another grand moment came when she was crossing the street at the corner of Madison Avenue from CBS to NBC yes, she worked for both and Helen Hayes rolled down the window of her chauffeured car and asked if she wanted a ride. Later in life, while traveling, she did film dubbing in Spain and in New York, which meant she worked behind the scenes working with transferring the lines from another language to English. That was really fun, she said. It was funny, because the mouths didnt always match when an English word was substituted for another language, but we did the best we could. Another thing she was accomplished at was doing two duplicate shows. In the 1930s through the 1950s they didnt tape shows, so they had to be performed twice, once for the Eastern audience and again for the West. While in Ecuador much later in life, she did Mary-Mary, taking the part of Mary. Oh, I was Mary, she said, laughing brightly. I realized while doing the part that Mary in the play always did or said things she shouldnt, and thats what I did in life. I told myself, you have to learn to keep that big mouth shut! Playing Mary-Mary taught me a lot about myself. During her years in New York, she also did movie shorts, which were moving pictures that lasted about 30 minutes, sort of like many television shows do now. After her husband retired, they moved to Sun City Center in 1999. One day, she was in the Sun City Center Laundromat in the plaza and saw an advertisement about Rosa Rio playing locally. I wondered if it was the Rosa Rio I knew from New York, she said. She called her, and after a long conversation, the two recalled particular things like the day they had a malted milk together as teenagers. Since moving to Florida she has been involved with the Performing Arts Company and with other productions, working with Ed Brown, John Bowker and Lew Ressiguie. Now 81, she is preparing for Happy Holidays with George and Gracie Dec. 12, 13 and 14 at St. John the Divine Episcopal Church on E. Del Webb Boulevard in Sun City Center. Tickets are available in advance at the church and at the door, if there are any left, she said. Acting has given her a wonderful life, she said. In hard times, like after my husband died, I told Ed, Ill be there. And I want you to make me laugh. Then there are times when she has to cry on demand. I found that was easy, she said. The first time I did it though, it was accidental. But now I can do it when I am asked. Jeanne has one daughter, Kathy, who lives in New Jersey, and four grandchildren. Her smile is bright, her memories seem perfectly intact down to the smallest detail. And her life, she says, is still full of happiness and promise.Age doesnt stop actor This edition of The Post from June 20, 1942, is still in remarkably good shape and kept in a storage box with thousands of clippings. The single photo on the second page is of Jeanne with the late Rosa Rio, who shows there that she was a bit older than Jeanne, who is the younger girl on the right.

Despite that no hurricanes have hit Florida in eight years, officials urge residents to not become complacent.By %  MITCH TRAPHAGEN mitch@observernews.netThe 2013 hurricane season ended on Saturday, and it is likely that few people noticed. It was a bright, sunny and blissfully cool day. And for some emergency managers, that is cause for concern. Florida hasnt been hit by a hurricane since 2005. In the past eight years, tens of thousands of people have moved into the Tampa Bay area with no idea what a tropical cyclone can do. In the past eight years, even longtime Floridians have had ample opportunity to become complacent about storms. No one in state or county emergency management wants a hurricane to hit. But at the same time, they fear that the public is forgetting all about hurricanes. It only takes one to create a catastrophe. Despite that the 2013 hurricane season seemed to come and go without much notice in the Tampa Bay area, the season was an interesting and unusual one it was a season that almost completely defied the forecasts. The season saw 13 named storms, which was slightly above the average of 11 named storms in a typical season. But that is one of the few areas where 2013 was above normal. Only two hurricanes formed, Humberto and Ingrid, both in September, and that is well below the nearly six storms in an average season. Only Ingrid made landfall on the northern Gulf coast of Mexico. There were no major hurricanes this year, something that has not occurred since 1994, and was also well below the average of nearly three per season. Among the many metrics the National Hurricane Center uses is one known as the Accumulated Cyclone Energy. The ACE value this year was the lowest it has been in nearly 20 years and, according to the NHC, was 67 percent lower than the 1981 to 2010 seasonal averages. This year also tied a longstanding record for the latest first hurricane. Only one storm, Andrea, which formed on June 5, had a slight impact on the Tampa Bay area, making landfall well north as a tropical storm. The last storm, Melissa, dissipated on Nov. 22 without making landfall. The original forecasts called for a much more active season. And that is becoming a concern for emergency officials. Complacency becomes the real threat with a slower than predicted season, said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Bryan Koon. The last hurricane to make landfall in Florida was in 2005. The last eight years have seen an influx of new residents, who may have experienced a tropical storm and believe that this event is the same in intensity as an actual hurricane. Memories also tend to fade with the passage of time between events, so even lifelong residents become complacent in their preparedness. We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to remain prepared and vigilant. Emergency managers in Hillsborough County and across the state have no desire to see a disaster. So they hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

DECEMBER 5, 2013 23that doesnt mean the threat of dangerous weather is over. Florida was fortunate to make it through another hurricane season without significant damage from a storm, said Koon. The models projected an active hurricane season this year. Many people believe all severe weather threats disappear at the end of hurricane season. Floridians and visitors must remember the other threats that exist, such as severe weather, flooding and wildfires. There were a number of factors that contributed to this year being relatively quiet, despite the forecast for an active season. One of the chief factors was dust from the Saharan Desert that produced dry air conditions in the Eastern Atlantic. That is not something easily predicted, nor should it be counted on to be a factor next year. The same goes for East Coast weather patterns over the summer that helped to keep storms from making landfall. The quiet 2013 hurricane season ended without incident on a beautiful and cool day last week. Next year, however, could be an entirely different story.

Brannigan Tom Brannigan died unexpectedly in his home at Sun City Center, Fla. on Wednesday, November 20, 2013. He is finally reunited with his beloved wife and dancing partner, Misae, who died in December 2009. He is survived by his son Michael Brannigan and his wife Brook of Niskayuna, N.Y.; twin daughters Marie Robertson and her husband Rick of Columbia, Missouri, and Margaret Dethrow and her husband Jerry of Columbia, Missouri; son Thomas Brannigan of Hinsdale, N.H.; grandchildren Dan and Matt Dethrow and Marisa Robertson; sister Kathleen Michael and her husband Marshall of Newport, R.I.; brother-in-law Fujiya Kimura and sister-in-law Shizuka Koie of Fukuoka, Japan; and extended family. Born in Newport, R.I. on May 25, 1928, Tom attended school at St. Augustins School and De La Salle Academy in Newport, R.I. before joining the U.S. Army in 1945. He was a veteran of WWII and Korea, where he earned two Bronze Stars and achieved a rank of Master Sergeant. He was honorably discharged from the Army in October 1952. After this, he worked at the Naval Base in Newport, R.I. in the Housing Department as a Supervisory Housing Project Manager until his retirement in 1985. Tom was a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernians for almost 69 years, holding many state and local offices in Rhode Island and in Florida, where he helped to organize a new chapter of the A.O.H. in Sun City Center in 1999. He was a parishioner at Prince of Peace Catholic Church in Sun City Center. Tom was known by many for his good deeds, kindness, sense of humor, and devotion to his family and friends. A father, brother and a friend to many, Tom will be missed by all who knew him. He and his beloved wife Misae will be buried together forever at Newport Memorial Park in the “Garden of Honor” in Middletown, R.I. The family would like to thank Maureen Kane for her work with Tom that allowed him to continue to live at home on his own terms. Services will be announced at a later date. Charles Dwight Curtiss, Jr. Charles Dwight Curtiss Jr., 91, of Sun City Center, died on Friday, November 15, 2013, after a short illness. Mr. Curtiss was born on October 23, 1922 in Washington D.C. After attending LeHigh College he enlisted in the United States Navy and underwent further officer training at MIT. He served during WWII in Hawaii where he met the love of his life, Mary Virginia Salisbury, who was serving in the Women’s Air Defense. They married on July 22, 1945, and spent 68 precious years together. They had two children, Deborah Ann May of Chillocothe, Mo. and Charles Dwight Curtiss III of Champaign, Ill. After the war Chuck completed his education at the Harvard School of Business and became an engineer at the Proctor and Gamble plant in Quincy, Massachucetts. He subsequently moved to the Cincinatti, Ohio location until his retirement in 1962 as the Head of Labor Relations for the Subsidiary Companies. Following his retirement in 1983, he and Mary moved to Sun City Center where they built a home off the golf course and enjoyed many rounds of golf over the years. He and Mary served on the Security Patrol there for years. He remained active volunteering as a math tutor in local schools and serving on various civic boards and committees as well as at St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. After moving to Aston Gardens In 2004, he continued his service by working on the Aston Gardens’ Employee Appreciation Fund. Preceding him in death were his parents, Charles Dwight Curtiss Sr. and Dorthea (Davis) Curtiss, sister Martha (Muffy) Trate, son-in-law William May, and granddaughter Elisabeth (Curtiss) Carter. He leaves behind beloved wife Mary (Salisbury) Curtiss; treasured children Deborah May and Charles Dwight Curtiss III, (Diana); grandchildren Anita (May) Pritchett (Will), Eric May (Kim), Taran (May) Anagnos (George), Caleb D. Curtiss, Canaan D. Curtiss, and Charity Curtiss, great-grandchildren Lucas and Keira Pritchett; Zachary, Ethan, Xavier and Tyler May. Chuck was an avid reader keeping the librarians at Sun City Center and Aston Gardens on alert for the books he enjoyed. Perhaps his greatest pleasures were summers spent at Nonquitt, Massachusetts, on Buzzards Bay, where he had gone since childhood; swimming, golfing and most of all visits from children, grandchildren and extended family in New England. A generous man, Chuck gave to the charities dear to his heart. Donations in his name may be given to the Aston Gardens’ Employee Appreciation Fund and St. Andrew Presbyterian Church. A memorial was held in his honor Saturday, November 16, 2013, at Aston Garden. Barbara Jean Prevatt Sanchez Barbara Jean Prevatt Sanchez, 77, of Kings Point in Sun City Center, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on November, 15, 2013. Born on August 6, 1936 in Balm, Fla. to Clyde B. Prevatt and Bessie Sweat Prevatt, Barbara was a quick-witted rascal with a skill for drawing in friends and leaving them with a grin on their faces, sharing a wink. She gave us unconditional love and laughter. We miss her but we know her spirit is all around us, especially on those rainy days that include football. She is survived by children William B. (Ben) Guthrie of Dallas, Karen Guthrie Rambin of Houston and Stephen C. Prevatt of Tampa; grandchildren Julia Guthrie Perez, Joe Rambin, Leven Rambin, Cori Brueggeman, Ward Brueggeman and Bella Beyer-Prevatt; and sister Sara Prevatt Dobbs. Moving from her life-long home of South Tampa to Sun City Center in 2010, she truly enjoyed all her new friends who welcomed her in her crochet group and her ceramic group. She loved her golf cart independence and being close to her Balm and Wimauma roots and Sunday lunches at her Aunt Sharon’s and Uncle Everett’s. A celebration of Barbara’s life was held with family on Sunday, Nov. 17 at the home of relatives, surrounded by the peace and beauty of Wimauma Lake. The family thanks the Freedom Plaza West rehab facility and the Sun Y…„Š„‹{z\000…„\000†w}{\000HK X
