She was assured that with proper treatment, including physical therapy, her condition would improve without surgery. Little did Barbara know that her fall was only the beginning of a monthslong medical crisis that took her entire family and a seniors advocate to solve. Barbaras case is an example of how an older patient became a vulnerable person at the mercy of those persons and facilities who would exploit her and her situation without regard for her personal wellbeing. And that is why legislation passed this year by state lawmakers to protect the rights of elderly and disabled residents is so important. House Bill 409, the vulnerable persons bill, was passed to protect the elderly and disabled by redefining the statutory definition of exploitation of vulnerable adults. It also increases penalties for those who steal seniors identities and holds caregivers accountable for negligence. The bill awaits Gov. Rick Scotts signature. After Barbara fell, her husband Jerry said that on one occasion after the physical therapy, something went wrong and the pain in her hip worsened. She also became less mobile as the weeks went by. In late September, she was in the bedroom and collapsed, Jerry said. He said that emergency services took Barbara to a local hospital. In the emergency room, her temperature was recorded at 104 degrees when she was admitted, he said. Meanwhile, her mind was going south, Jerry said. When surgery to fuse her vertebrae was suggested, Jerry called their son Mitchell, who flew to Florida. Jerry and Mitchell decided to cancel Barbaras operation. None of them were talking to me, Jerry said. No one was explaining why her mind was going bonkers. Jerry said Barbara ended up in a nursing home, where her condition was not improving, mentally or physically. By then, Jerry and Mitchell were joined by the Millsteins daughter, Cheryl Schaier of Virginia Beach. Continued on page 14f None of them were talking to me. Jerry MillsteinIn some medical situations a geriatric care manager is the best option for families who dont know where to turn when a loved one is in medical distress. By %  PENNY FLETCHER penny@observernews.netThe South County branch of Hillsborough Community College broke ground this week for its new two-story, 36,424-square-foot science and technology building. This will enable us to offer many more prerequisites for nursing and other premed studies than we have had before, said Allen Witt, campus president. Students who have families and jobs will be able to take many classes online, and then use their actual class time for the things that require being present in the classroom. They will be able to take many more courses here as well, and go on to study medicine at the University of South Florida or elsewhere much more quickly, he said. The building will have four non-organic chemistry labs, one organic chemistry lab, four multipurpose biology labs, eight classrooms and two computer classrooms, Witt said. Construction began immediately after the official groundbreaking and is scheduled to be completed April 4, 2015. HCC breaks ground for new science and technology labClasses in the new building will begin with the fall semester of 2015. Its important to note that the labs are being designed so they may also be used as classroom space, Witt said. This will give us flexibility as we continue to grow. Witt said that when the school opened, about 400 students were expected to enroll, but it opened with 1,652 students instead, immediately exceeding all estimates. The new building will also have four offices and a suite for deans. Like the other buildings on the campus, the new one will be a LEED-certified green building. LEED is a nationally certified building program authorized by the U.S. Green Building Council for environmentally friendly buildings. Open spaces will be enclosed and climate-controlled, Witt said. The campus has 18 portable buildings because of the large number of students who were not projected to be enrolled when it was first built. The staff will not be getting rid of all of these when the new addition is completed. We have grown so much faster Artists rendering of the new science and technology building at Hillsborough Community College SouthShore campus.Continued on page 2f Continued on page 13f Centenarian Celebration falls short of worlds record PENNY FLETCHER PHOTOWinn-Dixie Supermarkets supplied enough cupcakes to make two designs for the celebration. By %  PENNY FLETCHER penny@observernews.netSouth Countys 2014 Celebration of Centenarians was its largest ever, with 30 people 100 years or older, or who will reach their 100th birthday this year, in attendance. Last years attendance was 23, and organizers thought this years might break the Guinness Book of World Records. It would have, said Charlotte Clark, one of the six-person committee that put the event together, except that Clearwater recently had a similar event that drew 39. The 30 honored were mostly from Sun City Center, where the event was held in Community Hall on May 8, but invitations were for anyone in the area who was or is about to be a centenarian. Winn-Dixie Supermarkets supplied enough cupcakes to make the number 100 on two large areas on a table making them look like two cakes.

The Thriftway Plaza in Ruskin and MiraBay Village in Apollo Beach, both on U.S. 41, were victims of this dangerous practice. The MiraBay theft was in a less conspicuous area of the parking lot, but the two missing grates in Thriftway Plaza were in central locations in the parking lot where there is a good amount of traffic. Plaza manager Tom Cairns said the situation could be disastrous for a vehicle whose driver is unaware the grate is missing. Anyone who notices a grate missing that has not been barricaded or marked is urged to call the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office at 813-247-8200.school year, enrollment for this campus grew 7.3 percent.

Kelly Zunkiewicz works with students in her pre-calculus class, which scored first in the county on their final exams over the last three finals. Their class average was 92.6 percent in January. By %  KEVIN BRADY kevin@observernews.netA math teacher at Lennard High School in Ruskin is among the final 10 nominees for a prestigious $25,000 education award. Kelly Zunkiewicz is also the only Florida teacher still in the running for the Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice. More than 1,000 teachers had been nominated. Zunkiewicz, a former teacher of the year at Lennard, teaches precalculus and Advanced Placement calculus and is also a math coach, helping other teachers. She started here right after college and has gotten better every single year, said Lennard principal Craig Horstman. She has a strong background knowledge of her discipline and knows what shes talking about. She also has a great personality and can relate to the students. She just knows how to be a teacher. She just has it. Launched in 2012, the $25,000 Fishman Prize for Superlative Classroom Practice is an annual award for exceptionally effective teachers working in high-poverty public schools. No more than five teachers are awarded the prize each year. Of the more than 1,000 teachers who were nominated for the prize, 800 applied by writing essays, compiling letters of recommendation and sending in videos. The list of applicants was further whittled by an unannounced visit to the teachers classrooms by a member of the prize committee. Zunkiewicz was the only teacher chosen from Florida. The last step is an interview with the committee that Zunkiewicz completed last week in Brooklyn, N.Y. She was one of 10 finalists interviewed. The committee will announce the winners next week. As many as five can be selected. Zunkiewicz, a Ruskin resident, said she is honored and excited to be among the finalists. Its a great thing not just for me but for my students and the school, she said. Zunkiewicz credits her parents for helping her becoming a successful teacher. My mom was a first-grade teacher for 35 years and my dad was a small-business owner, so I saw what they went through and how hard they worked. Ms. Zunkiewicz is an amazing young woman dedicated to our student population, said Lisa Greenaker, a Lennard science teacher. Principal Horstman said Zunkiewicz is constantly looking to improve. She is very reflective about what she is doing in her classes, he said. She is always taking professional development courses and not willing to remain stagnant. I just want the best for my students, knowing how hard they will be pushed outside, Zunkiewicz said. I have high expectations for them and want them to succeed. At the same time, I have compassion for them. They know I care and understand why I am pushing them so hard because they see the benefit of it. They are wonderful kids and work really hard. In addition to receiving $25,000, each Fishman Prize winner participates in an intensive summer residency. They reflect on their classroom practice, explore the larger issues that shape their profession, and write a short paper on the elements of effective teaching. The residency allows the winners to share their expertise with educators across the country without taking time away from the classrooms, where they do their best work. The prize is named for Shira Fishman, a math teacher currently teaching at McKinley Technology High School in Washington, D.C. A former mechanical engineer, Shira became a teacher through The New Teacher Projects (TNTP) highly selective DC Teaching Fellows program in 2004. Her knowledge of math and her passion for teaching have inspired and motivated her students ever since. TNTP is a national nonprofit committed to ending the injustice of educational inequality. Founded by teachers in 1997, TNTP works with schools, districts and states to provide excellent teachers to the students who need them most and advance policies and practices that ensure effective teaching in every classroom.

CALL FOR DETAILS. There is an adage that says, The harder I work, the luckier I get. I am not alone in thinking this is true. Ralph Waldo Emerson said, The right merchant is one who has just average of the faculties we call common sense; a man of a strong affinity for facts, who makes up his decision on what he has seen. He is thoroughly persuaded of the truths of arithmetic. There is always a reason, in the man, for his good or bad fortune in making money. Men talk as if there were some magic about this. He knows that all goes on the old road, pound for pound, cent for cent for every effect, a perfect cause and that good luck is another name for tenacity of purpose. Training and knowledge, along with commitment, are certainly some of the keys to success. Emerson also said, All successful men have agreed in one thing they were causationists. They believed that things went not by luck, but by law; that there was not a weak or a cracked link in the chain that joins the first and last of things. Are you prepared to make things happen? Are the links in your chain strong enough to hold you through tough times or are you trusting to luck? I think that the first link must be how we define success. For some, it is money; for others, it is respect. Power certainly is how some would define success. But it does not matter how others define success; it is how you define it that makes the difference. Try to write in 25 words or less what you would deem as success in your life. Maybe determining the words you would like said of you when you leave this earthly home will help you to get started. Once you have established how you define success, look around for people who have achieved what you want to achieve. They are the next link in your chain. If they are close, try to make personal contact with them. If that is not possible, write to them of your admiration and ask them to tell you what they think are the most important things that one must focus on to achieve what they have achieved. Be as specific as you can in your request. Simply saying to them, How did you become a success? is much too broad. Ask a more specific question such as, What are the five things I can do to? You fill in the blank. Listen to the responses you get and forge them into strong links by taking appropriate action. Are you a causationist? Do you make things happen or do you sit around and wonder what happened? In the days of ancient Rome, the small country of Italy took over most of the known world. They did it because they had Caesars who were so committed to their task that they burned their ships rather than even think about retreat. Can you muster that same resolve? Now go to work. Somewhere in Africa a lion and a gazelle are waking up this morning. Each must be prepared to run, but the stakes are different for each. One will run for his supper; if he loses, he just goes hungry. But if the other loses, it is all over. What is your impetus Positive Talk: Prepare to be luckyto run? How much do you want that thing that you have defined as success? There is a caution, and I think it is an important one. Be sure that in link one, you have defined success as that which will make you truly happy. Keep in mind that we pay for all we have with all we are, and in the end we must determine if it was worth it. Finally, if you are unwilling to do any of this, there is still a chance for you, according to the Bible. Ecclesiastes 9:11 says, The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, neither yet bread to the wise, nor yet riches to men of understanding, nor yet favor to men of skill; but time and chance happeneth to them all. But do you wish to trust your life to chance? You could end up being lunch.Hodges is a nationally recognized speaker, trainer and syndicated columnist.

For example, the HomeschoolCompanion, a website for homeschool families, states: While you and your child can still seek non-scholastic teams and other competitive hobbies, this generally requires prior interest in a topic. The school system, on the other hand, provides several competitive paths for children to try without provocation. On the plus side, homeschooling provides a unique opportunity for the parent to bond with her child, to develop teaching styles and tools tailored specifically for the child, and to share the learning experience. Flexibility is also a major plus. Lesson plans can be customized not only to the student but to the parent as well. Imagine combining a math lesson with the weekly grocery shopping. Your child learns addition, subtraction, even multiplication, while you get your shopping done. Individual attention is another plus. Your childs individual struggles can be more easily identified and cor rected with gentle encouragement from you as opposed to a teacher trying to do that in a classroom full of 30 or more students. And guess what? No student-teacher confer ences! You already know what is going on. Consider safety. Parents have more control over bullying, violence and exposure to drugs or alcohol. There are freedoms, as well. Emotional freedom from peer pressure. Religious freedom to incorporate religious beliefs into the fabric of the childs education and daily life. Karen Tierny, a Riverview resident and 17-year veteran of homeschooling, says, When I first started, I was so excited to see the books I could use to relate my childrens education to the Christian values and beliefs I hold. There is also physical freedom. Parents no longer have to revolve around the school schedule. Doctor/ dentist visits can be scheduled conveniently, and family vacations can be planned during off-season times. One of the often touted downsides to homeschooling is socialization. Yet this, too, is a gray area. While homeschool students spend less time with student groups, today they have options that werent available when the pioneers of modern day homeschooling were getting started. Co-ops, in which a group of parents and teachers take turns volunteer ing time and talents, offer a variety of socialization opportunities, from field trips to chess clubs, to sporting tournaments, dances and music recitals. With proper planning, the socialization opportunities are there for the taking. A major concern for parents is financial. If a parent gives up a job to educate a child at home, he or she must consider the sacrifices and adjustments that may have to be made. For some, this is a deal breaker. For others, not so much. If the job the parent has is part-time, some of the financial loss may be made up with gains from saving on things like commuter costs, professional clothing and dry cleaning, and school uniforms. Work-at-home opportunities may also play a part. Another concern is the constant interaction. Parents of a traditional schoolchild are generally assured of approximately 40 hours a week when the child is not in the home. Some parents need that break more than others. Clearly, there are many factors to consider.

Membership is by invitation and requires nomination and approval by a chapter. Only the top 10 percent of seniors and 7.5 percent of juniors, having at least 72 semester hours, are eligible for member ship. Graduate students in the top 10 percent of the number of candidates for graduate degrees may also qualify, as do faculty, professional staff, and alumni who have achieved scholarly distinction. Trap-Neuter-Vaccinate-Return, or TNVR, is a strategy for improving the lives of feral cats and reducing their numbers. At a minimum, such feral cats are spayed or neutered so they can no longer reproduce, vaccinated against rabies, and surgically eartipped on one ear (ear-tipping is the universal sign of a cat who has gone through TNVR). Dedicated caretakers feed and provide shelter for such cats, monitor those cats for sickness and remove new cats for TNVR if feral or possible adoption if tame.

C Happy Hour Every Day! 11am-5pm & 8pm-close Letters to the editorDear Editor, The article Sierra Club barred from tour of proposed ferry, park, by Penny Fletcher, published 5-112014, is an eye-opener. It calls attention to the need for more parks for our growing citizens. It is clear that birds, unlike people, can move around to areas that suit them very easily. They just fly away. Not so with human beings, who are hampered by laws and Keep Out signs all over the bay to restrict their every move. To demonstrate just how bad this has become, look at the unbelievable growth in redmarked areas on the article illustration. These note the off limit to people bird preserves. In particular, note their locations: all along the shores of Tampa Bay. I think the new South Shore sports-minded generation will want their children to enjoy beach, dock and boat launch facilities so that they can enjoy what we, the more senior individuals, enjoyed before the nesting crowd walled off the bay. To focus on boat launching into Tampa Bay, all we have in Hillsborough County really is E.G. Simmons and Williams Parks. You cant count on substandard Cockroach Bay ramp and parking, lowbridge-restricted Common good [sic] Park ramp, low-tide-restricted Dominick [sic] Park ramp, and dangerous incline Wild Cat Creek ramp. As has been seen so many times in the past, all, in particular both Simmons and Williamss ramps, get overloaded, particularly when the weather is nice. Lets look at why this has surfaced now and will get worse. First it was Amazon, with its 1,000 worker force in Ruskin. Then it was Bass Pro Bass Shops in Brandon, followed by Gander Mountain, and finally Sports Authority. All these outfits will attract the younger sports-minded customers and hire sports-minded employees, who will locate close to the work places. What will they find: Not much because most of the boat ramp access to the water is in Manatee, Clearwater, and Pinellas counties. But wait, I forgot there is the HMS Global Maritime need for a ferry terminal to MacDill Airfield Base [sic]. The proposed location is the undeveloped Fred and Idah [sic] Schultz Preserve at the southern tip of Hillsborough County in the Kitchen area with a 3-acre proposed boat basin. Once the four boat launch ramps are added, the large 1,000+ space parking lot could easily be used whenever car parking for the ferries are light, most likely on weekends. A perfect parking fit, with a nominal parking fee to insure [sic] the lot remains clean and has an organized appearance. This location will certainly cut down on wasteful boat traffic and trailer traffic to and from distant ramps and beaches. This ferry terminal location will continue to attract more business activities to serve the growing young sports-minded population. It could also go a long way to attracting a new ball park on this side of the bay in the event that the Rays want to relocate. Hillsborough County should approve the HMS Global Maritime project without further delay, and add a nominal grant to cover the four boat ramp design and construction costs. Charlie Feldschau Sun City Center Dear Editor, A recent story on The Observer News quotes Gail Parsons commenting on the High Speed Ferry Project and the Schultz Preserve. She was identified as Vice Chair of the Tampa Bay Sierra Club. The views expressed by Gail Parsons were her own and do not reflect the official position of the Tampa Bay Sierra Club. The Tampa Bay Sierra Club endorses and supports the Tampa Bay High Speed Ferry Project. This position was adopted at the June 5, 2013 meeting of our Executive Committee by a vote of seven to one, with one abstention. As a result of that vote, I was directed by then-Chair Marcia Biggs to draft a letter of support to each of the Hillsborough County Commissioners. ... Tampa Bay Sierra expects the Ferry Project, with commuter ferries connecting south Hillsborough County and MacDill Air Force Base, to replace up to 62,000 vehicle miles on our highways per day, significantly reducing air and water pollution in the Tampa Bay area. Cleaner air and water makes the county more livable and attractive for people and wildlife and for economic development and tourism. In Tampa Bay, motor vehicles are the major source of air pollution. From 2007-2009, Hillsborough County reported 21 days when ozone levels were high enough to issue health warnings the highest number in the state. Hillsborough County received an F-rating by the American Lung Association for ground-level ozone pollution, known as smog, which is produced when heat and sunlight cook tailpipe emissions. The ferry can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 6000 tons per year and NOx pollution by up to 16 tons per year. Nitrogen is a major pollutant to Tampa Bay. Vehicles discharge oils and toxins onto our roads, which pollute wetlands and waterways through stormwater runoff. Tampa Bay Sierra believes the High Speed Ferry project will shift the development/transportation paradigm for the rapidly growing area in South Hillsborough County. Providing a premium transit option that works will incentivize transit-oriented development and promote options such as buses, bikes and sidewalks in the place of ever-wider roadways. No other transit option has the potential to move so many people for so little cost. We continue to support the expeditious development and funding of this innovative, transformative and cost-effective transportation project Kent Bailey Chair, Tampa Bay Sierra Club GroupWhat snacks to make for kids with allergiesA new class on summertime snacks for kids with allergies is offered from 4 to 5 p.m. on Thursday, May 15, at the Publix in Winthrop Town Centre.

They are in their 70s and frequently call me with their computer questions and problems, but I live across town and dont always have time to get in the car and drive over to help them. Whats available that can help us? Weary Son Dear Weary, Helping elder loved ones with their computer questions or problems over the phone can be frustrating and difficult. Fortunately, there are a number of resources available today that offer remoteaccess software that can easily help you assist your parents with their computer issues from afar. One of the best is TeamViewer, which is completely free to use and works with Windows and Macintosh computers. To get started, you and your parents will need to go to TeamViewer. com and install their free software on each of your computers. Howto videos are available on their site to help with the installation. Once installed and with their permission you will be able to access your parents computer right from your own computer wherever you are. Both machines must have broadband Internet for this to work. This software will give you the ability to actually see whats appearing on your parents computer screen, and will let you remotely take charge of their computer so you can show them how to do something, or you can do it for them while they watch. Almost anything can be done remotely with this software. You can even keep a live video chat open at the same time youre helping them. If youre interested in shopping around, some other free remoteaccess programs worth a look include Chrome Remote Desktop (go to chrome.google.com/webstore and type in Chrome Remote Desktop in the Search the store box to find it), and SkyFex (skyfex.com), which works only with Windows. Skype also has a screen-share feature (see skype.com/en/features/screen-sharing) that lets you share your screen and video chat at the same time, but you cant actually take control of the other persons computer. You can only show them what they should be doing by demonstrating it on your own desktop. Professional Tech Support If your parents need more tech support than you are able to manage, another option to consider is to sign them up with a tech support company like Geek Squad (geeksquad. com, 800-433-5778), which also offers remote access capabilities to help your parents with almost any computer issue. Whenever they need assistance, they could call the Geek Squad toll-free number anytime, 24 hours a day, or log in to their website. A Geek Squad representative would then help them initiate a remote-access session, so they could remotely show them how to do something, or make repairs or adjustments to their computer. Once the call is completed, the remote-control access would be disconnected from your parents computer. In addition to the remote access help, Geek Squad tech support also offers free antivirus software, they cover up to three computers (or other devices), and provide unlimited phone and in-person tech support at any Best Buy store. Costs range from $200 for one year, $280 for two years or $350 for three years, with a 15 percent discount available to AARP members. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Blood donor wins new car; gives car to friend fighting leukemiaIn a stunning turnaround, dedicated blood donor and Florida National Guard Sgt. Jacob Thomas won a car in a blood center promotion and decided to give the car away to his friend and fellow platoon sergeant, William McNeil Jr., who is fighting leukemia and awaiting a bone-marrow transplant. I got a reliable car, I dont particularly need the money, so, you know, its like helping a friend out, said Thomas. I mean, he needs it a lot more than I do. Its the right thing to do. The car is just a bonus. The real winning is donating blood and helping people and saving their lives. He told me I just want to give you the car. I was completely blown away, and I really didnt know what to say, said McNeil. I have a really old car and must travel to Shands Hospital in Gainesville for treatment. Now I have a car that will hold my family and one that is a gas-saver. Thomas has been donating blood since high school and, ironically enough, his friend McNeil has had to have multiple blood and platelet transfusions due to the harsh effects of chemotherapy. KIA Autosport of Pensacola donated the car for the promotion. Kia Autosport manager and vice president Jessica Lee thanked Thomas and all blood donors for their donations during the promotion. She said, Its not about the car, but raising awareness to the increased need for blood in our community. OneBlood serves as one of the seven military hubs throughout the country, which means they are ready to provide needed blood to the military when called. Generally healthy people age 16 or older who weigh at least 110 pounds can donate blood.

The businesses are mentioned because the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce, under the direction of Larry Brigant, supplied a chamber Ambassador as a guide and helper for each person. Sherell Bennett and Natalia Diaz from South Bay Hospital, Charlotte Clark from American Momentum Bank, and Jo Bull, representing the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay, worked on the event for many months with the events first organizer, resident Spencer Faircloth, a former White House staffer; and Evelyn Lunsford, who has worked long and hard with the Community Foundation of Tampa Bay and the Greater Sun City Center branch of that Foundation that helps causes all over South County. These people gathered short biographies of each person and put on a This is Your Life presentation for the attendees that brought many memories and joyful tears to honorees and guests alike.

Ruth volunteered with the Sun City Center Emergency Squad for more than 20 years and still is an active volunteer in the community.

She said she has had a happy and enjoyable life she would not want to change. The second-eldest centenarian was Arabella Arnold, who at 102 tells you right off that she is a Christian and a Republican. Her beliefs are the most important things in her life, along with her family, and her advice to younger people is: Always do good things and never tell your age! Carl Gladfelter, 102, says he was fortunate because his career thrived during the Great Depression. He has met many famous people, including Walter Cronkite, who was a close friend. His advice to stay alive many years is to take good care of the body. He, unlike Allen, has never smoked and says he has always lived a good clean life. Dorothy Rosssel, who is now 101, worked as an RN and remembers her first salary being $60 a month. A member of a family of 14 children, she had two herself, as well as five grandchildren. Lois Witte at 100 is learning new computer programs. Her daughter recently got her a computer, and Lois is learning how to operate the Dragon program where you speak into the computer instead of typing. She hopes this will be a way she can record her lifetime of memories for her daughter and granddaughter. Its hard to get the program to recognize the exact words you say, Witte said. But it is getting used to me, and I am getting more comfortable with it. Nine people who are currently 99 were also honored because they will reach their 100th birthday in 2014. They are Mary Boisseree, Robert Emgelhardt, Irma Houlihan, Audrey Meeker, Connie Naccarato, Margaret Null, Bernard Pagels, Connie Strunc and Ava Vormwald.Centenarian Celebration falls shortf PENNY FLETCHER PHOTOFour generations of Margaret Nulls family showed up to celebrate.

MARK LAMIELLE JSA MEDICAL GROUP SUN CITY CENTER787 Cortaro Drive Sun City Center, FL 33573 We now have a Facebook page! facebook.com/ JSAMedicalGroup/ SCCACVisit us online to view the monthly calendar and upcoming events: JSAMedicalGroup.com click the events tab Jerry said they all had advanced degrees yet did not know how to deal with Barbaras medical emergency. It was when the attending physician at the nursing home gave his prognosis to the family that they knew they needed help. He said to me, You have to face facts. She may not come out of it, Jerry said. They did not know where to turn. Then a random meeting with an attorney gave them the answer they needed. The attorney mentioned to the family that a geriatric care manager might be of help, and he recommended Deena Balogh. Balogh has a long line of credentials, including acting as a medical guardian, and is certified by the National Certification of Geriatric Care Managers. Talk about an angel, Jerry said, referring to Balogh after she saw Barbara in the nursing home. She said to us, I think theres hope. We have to get her out of here. The kind of confidence needed to question top medical managers at hospitals and nursing homes about their clients, Balogh said, comes from knowing what they are talking about and knowing what they need to do to help the people entrusted to their care. Such geriatric care managers make the tough call. On Oct. 21, 2013, Barbara was taken to Tampa General Hospital, where she was admitted to geriatric intensive care. They found she had Mercer Disease, or MRSA, and began treating her with antibiotics. The disease had infected Barbaras lungs. f Geriatric concernsMRSA is an infection caused by the bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. Within days, Barbara began recovering her mental and physical faculties. The Millsteins feel that a miracle happened. Without a third-party opinion, though, her family is sure Barbara would never have come out of the nursing home. When you come to a crossroad like this and you dont know what to do, Jerry said, you get an independent analysis. She would have been in the nursing home the rest of her life. Barbara is still wobbly over her experience. Im not an overly afraid person, but I was so nervous, my body would shake, Barbara said about her experience. According to Balogh, the Millsteins story is a classic example of whats wrong with the system. Balogh says she sees that same scenario a lot, where the patient is not receiving the care they need to make a recovery. Its more than advocating. Its a battle, Balogh said. We are trained and credentialed at the highest levels. I spend a third of my time in courts. Generally what happens, she says, is that people have a fall, are in the hospital for their maximum three days for which Medicare will pay, and then they are released to their home, or a shortterm care facility like a nursing home. That is when the trouble can happen, Balogh said. Florida lawmakers are passing legislation to guarantee the safety of the elderly and the disabled. Unfortunately, Balogh said, the right kinds of lobbyists are not demanding that action be taken. Change is slow. It is important to protect these people as they age and increasingly need help in making decisions about the quality of their life and health care. Many are finishing their lives in assisted living, or nursing homes, so regulations of these facilities must be enforced. Failing to pass this legislative session were House Bill 573 and Senate Bill 248. Key provisions would have assured that there would be oversight over assisted living facilities similar to that over nursing homes. A rating system would have been implemented to establish fines if those ratings became delinquent. Also, a special license would be required if one or more residents at an assisted living facility were facing mental health issues. Some 83,000 Florida residents who are elderly or disabled live in assisted living facilities. Since 2003, the number of facilities has increased by 32 percent. According to the Florida Health Care Association, by 2025 Floridas population older than 65 years of age is expected to be 26 percent of the population. It is important to note the difference between assisted living and nursing care facilities. While assisted living facilities offer a housing alternative to older adults, who may need help with daily needs, only a nursing care facility can help with nursing and medical care. Assisted living facilities are now overseen by consumer or lawyer groups. Kay Coburn Dyer is an advocate for her clients on a different level than Balogh. She tends to work inside the system as a watchdog, placing her clients in the appropriate health-care facility, or making sure they are safe and healthy in their own homes. Families and doctors make referrals to her when they see a problem with an elderly person who needs a helping hand. I go right to the hospital with my client, Dyer, a CMC-certified care manager says. I am on their first-responder list. I spend half my time in the ER (emergency room). As a cancer survivor, Dyer has seen the inside reality of medical facilities. She is working with South Bay Hospital now to bring in an arts and music program to help healing that she experienced when she was at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa fighting cancer. What Dyer worries about is the lack of Medicaid availability in Florida. First and foremost, we should be getting Medicaid back, Dyer said. It is free, federal money. The legislature in Florida seems to have different priorities.Coming eventsThe Firehouse Cultural Center is located at 101 1st Ave. NE, Ruskin.

By %  KEVIN BRADY kevin@observernews.netA Ruskin-based ministry that has to move is praying for a miracle so it can continue to serve the areas hungry and homeless population. Opened in 2008 by Pastor William and Dora Cruz, the Lords Lighthouse Mission, 815 East College Ave., helps feed and clothe more than 300 people a week. But the property on East College Avenue is owned by St. John the Divine Episcopal Church, which opened a new church in Sun City Center in 2009. The cost of operating both campuses has become a financial strain on the church. St. John Church had told Dora Cruz they Ministry to poor waiting for a miracle as it faces prospect of homelessnessPHOTO COURTESY OF T THE LORDS LIGHTHOUSEOpened in 2008 by Pastor William and Dora Cruz, The Lords Lighthouse Mission, 815 East College Ave., helps feed and clothe more than 300 people a week.would have to be off the property, where the ministry operated for six years, by Friday, May 16. But they told us to stay for now because they have someone interested in the property, but we really dont know what is happening, Dora Cruz said. But we enjoy being here and being able to serve people. Just this morning we had a couple who had slept outdoors overnight because they had been kicked out of their home. They were able to have a shower here, and we feed them breakfast. St. John had planned to close the College Avenue church in 2008 and move into a larger facility, but because of zoning issues, the church opted to maintain both campuses. Ed Brown, chief of staff at St. John the Divine, explained the situation with the College Avenue church this way: We kept one contemporary service at 9 a.m. on Sundays there and gave it five years to see if it was a viable plan, but at the end of the five years we were disappointed in our expectations of growth there, and expenses were growing larger. Dora Cruz said calls to other local churches asking for space to operate the ministry have been unsuccessful. She said the mission inquired about some vacant space near the Ruskin post office, but that the rent proved prohibitive. They wanted $2,000 a month for rent, which we cannot afford, Dora Cruz said. We keep praying that Lord will provide us space, but its such a nightmare. The mission was planning to move to La Red Ministries on 33rd Street in Ruskin they are already holding a Sunday morning worship service there at 8:30 a.m. but with no office space or kitchen available on the site, Cruz fears they will no longer be able to offer the services many poor and elderly residents have come to rely on. In addition to giving out food every week, the mission also helps the poor apply for federal self-help programs through its Access service. Many people are not aware that there are programs out there to help them, so we assist them in applying. But without office space, that is not something we will be able to continue doing, Cruz said. We have broken hearts but we are praying whoever buys the property will let us stay, said an emotional Cruz. We are taking everything one day at a time and waiting for a miracle.

Parker bought a very nice car two years ago, and has made it even better. She had the seats redone, then decided to have a flaw on the top repainted. That looked so good, she had the entire car refinished in a lustrous metallic blue. Those and other refinements resulted in the awardwinner it is today. The Bel Air is Dorothys first venture into the oldcar hobby Built the same year I graduated from high school, she says and she enjoys driving it to shows and cruise-ins throughout the area. The Roamin Oldies hosts a cruise-in from 6 to 9 p.m. the first Thursday of every month in the Apollo Beach Winn-Dixie Plaza on U.S. 41.

16 MAY 15, 2014 When you hear this from a patient, it gets your attention. Typically, I get the worst of the worst pain patients, but when I recently heard this exclamation, my attention was particularly piqued. Lets call this patient Bob. Bob is 62 years old with neuropathy in his hands and feet. He had poorly controlled Type II Diabetes and his life was, as he described, a living hell. Clearly he was coming to the end of his rope. The nerves in his legs and feet were damaged and he was in HORRIBLE CONSTANT PAIN! I cant sleep at night! He complained to me, I cant sleep at night because my legs feel like they are being eaten by little bugs or chewed on by small animals. During the day, he could hardly walk, and every step sent shooting pain like lightning from his toes and up his legs, up almost to his knees. He had numb ness in his feet and couldnt feel his feet very well and had terrible balance problems. He was worried he might fall and injure himself. He said that he could not go on living with this con stant, debilitating pain that had made every day a tragedy. I had to help this man! I recently was fortunate enough to ac cidentally discover a new noninvasive and nondrug treatment for severe and constant foot and leg pain caused by Neuropathy. I learned about a new type of nonsurgical and painless high-tech treatment that was working wonders with severe, constant chronic pain, including pain caused by Neuropathy. It had the ability to quickly increase circulation to an area (much needed in neuropathy patients). It could reduce and / or eliminate pain in as little as a few treatments, and was changing the lives of patients with severe debilitat Based on the research about this new type of technology and because of the almost immediate type of pain relief, The patient and any other person responsible for payment has a right to refuse to pay, cancel payment or be reimbursed for payments for any other service, examination, or treatment that is performed as a result of and within 72 hours of responding to the advertisement for free, discounted fee, or reduced service, examination or treatment. I had to have one of these deep-tissue treatments in my facility, no matter what the cost. I invested and implemented this new treatment that utilized state-of-the-art pain-relieving therapies as well as other therapies, all customized to the patients particular needs. I enrolled in extensive training. My staff and I witnessed some amazing reductions and eliminations of some of the worst pain syndromes I have ever seen ... And it was FAST! After just a few minutes of treatment on patients with extreme chronic pain of the worst kind, including neuropathy of the feet and legs, we had patients telling us how their pain levels had decreased, and they were shocked. Some of them even had their pain alleviated after only one treatment. We were able to reduce or even eliminate neuropathy pain of the worst kind. I now offer a noninvasive, nonsur gical and painless neuropathy pain treatment. I help patients reduce or eliminate their neuropathy pain using a combination of natural therapies, customized to each individual patients needs. These therapies may include a possible combination of: Nutritional invasive relaxing re-integration and stimulation of peripheral nerves, vibra tion therapy, laser therapy, myofascial release, and more. Heres what some patients have said about their treatments: My experience with Sarasota Spine and Nerve: I am a vigorously active 69-year-old man. For two years, I have pursued various medical specialists and solu tions seeking relief from my agonizing I had become completely frustrated with surgical, pharmacological and exercise therapies that were prescribed for me. Masking the pain, burn ing and numbness were not accept able solutions. All that changed when I was introduced to Dr. Tyson and Sarasota Spine and Nerve. The inte grated regimen of Neuroanalgesic, lower-extremity circulatory mas sage and vibration therapy, combined with a carefully crafted combination of nutritional supplementation and lifestyle management, has resulted in an extraordinary improvement in my condition. My overall improvements in comfort and physical agility have been nothing short of amazing. I have experienced dramatically reduced pain and burning, improved balance and agility, and gained a level of recovery I never thought possible. The staff at the clinic is simply incredible. I am deeply indebted to Dr. Tyson and the staff at Sarasota Spine and Nerve. -Milton Brown, Valrico, FL Eight years ago my feet started to bother me with a prickling and numb sensation and continued to worsen es pecially at nighttime feels like thou sands of pins being stuck in my feet and lots of burning sensation as well as numbness, loss of feeling and toe cramping. Then I saw the ad for Sara sota Spine and Nerve, and that was the beginning of my relief. It wasnt long into my treatment when I noticed I no longer had the pins and needles in my feet. Now it really had my attention. Okay, this sounds funny, but before, my feet had a really bad burning sensa tion when I tried to wear socks and shoes, and I just couldnt stand it. Now I am happy to say I can wear socks and shoes again without the irritation! My feet are 85 to 90 percent better than they had been. I no longer have the terrible prickling and burning when I go to bed at night, and most of the time during the day I can almost forget I have a problem. I cannot thank them enough for giving me this amount of relief with their treatment. Everyone at Sarasota Spine & Nerve is very caring and goes out of their way to help in a situation I thought couldnt be helped BUT IT CAN! -Lynne Meyers (Retired) Nokomis, FL The treatment is working quite well! I can now walk without feeling as though someone is pounding nails into my feet. My feet and ankles are no longer constantly swollen. I fell 3 times last year but my balance is much better now. Also I can now walk the entire length of a store without resting or leaning heavily on a cart. Thanks so much, Doctors and staff of Sarasota Spine & Nerve. -Barbara Schlachter (Retired RN) North Port, FL When I came to Sarasota Spine and Nerve I never dreamed that anything would change. My hands and feet were so painful that I could hardly bear it. I was taking pain medication two times a day and sometimes a third if needed. It was painful to wash my hands. They felt like they had been fried. My terrible. I couldnt stand for anything to touch them. Wearing shoes was miserable. Now I can tell a big differ ence. Before I started this treatment it even hurt to clap my hands, but not anymore. Thank you, God, Dr. Tyson and all of your staff at Sarasota Spine and Nerve. -Brenda Hill, (Retired) Sarasota, FL So just how can you see if Dr. Tysons Neuropathy Pain Relief treatment will help you reduce or eliminate your foot or leg pain?

Neither of us had ever been there, and we were eager to try a place wed heard so many wonderful things about. We were shown to a nice booth in the back and handed menus to peruse. The hostess didnt offer to get our drink order, but we figured the server would be by shortly. Fifteen minutes later, no one had come to check on us, even though other customers who came in after us were being served their salads. Needless to say, we simply got up and walked out. We didnt say anything to anyone. We just walked out. Neither the hostess nor the manager will ever know why, but they lost us as potential customers for good. Can your business afford to do that? Most business owners and managers have long, relationship-building conversations with their existing customers. These savvy businesspeople might even consider it research to find out what their customers like about their product or service so they can continue to provide them with the same great stuff. With all the rejections salespeople get on sales calls, its nice to hear from their best customers about what a great company they work for, and how much they like what the company has to offer. To which I say Hur ray! But dont stop there. If this restaurant had stopped us as we went out the door the hostess did see us leave they would know they had a service issue that needed correcting. This may sound counterproductive, but before researching people who buy your wares, research the people who have considered buying from you but either didnt or went elsewhere.

Lower Prices/ Better CareALIGNMENT$6999 In the mind of MicahI love you, momBy %  MICAH BREWER bmicah25@yahoo.comI love my mom. Some people complain about days like Mothers Day, citing the fact that it is exploited for commercial gain, but I dont mind. If some people can figure out how to feed their families a few times a year selling flowers or chocolates to people trying to show someone else how much they appreciate them, more power to them. Some of us need a nudge every once in a while to express to the ones we love how much we care. Of course, there is always that person who says in a very condescending tone, Well, you know, every day should be Mothers Day, or Valentines Day, or Tax Day. Of course, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I disagree. If every day is treated the same, then none of them is special. Like when we give trophies to kids on sports teams for being losers. The trophy has lost its meaning. Of course we should celebrate our mothers more than just one day a year. As a single mother, my mom worked hard to provide for me and my brother. She taught us how to throw a ball, helped with science fairs, and all the other things that go along with raising kids on your own. One of the things I am most thankful for was how much fun we had. Even though we didnt have a lot of money, Mom always found cheap ways to make lifelong memories. I remember one afternoon, we were all sitting around the kitchen, talking about a friend of mine who got busted sneaking out of the house late at night. He had been picked up by the cops doing some kind of prank. I remember Mom saying, I dont want you boys out running around in the middle of the night. If you want to do something like that, ask me and Ill go with you. As a 10-year-old I was thinking, Yeah, right, youre going to take us out to play pranks on people in the middle of the night? So I asked if we could go throw toilet paper all over the house of some neighborhood friends. Mom thought for about two seconds, then said, All right, get in the car and well go get some toilet paper for tonight. True to her word, six hours later, my brother and I were in our friends front yard throwing toilet paper all over the place. My mom proudly stood holding one of those huge packs of TP, pointing out places that still required attention. The next day at baseball practice, I watched her listen caringly to my buddys mom as she described how some delinquent juveniles had desecrated their front lawn with miles and miles of toilet paper. I have never been so proud. I sat there in awe of how awesome my mom was. Two weeks later, my mother gave the woman a present. It was a shoe box neatly wrapped with a bow on top. Inside, the woman found a single roll of toilet paper. We all laughed until tears were coming down our faces. She was a great sport about it, and later got her revenge. Over the years, my Mom has been the recipient of many wellintended but terrible Mothers Day presents. One year my brother and I got her a battery charger because she had been complaining about how we used all the batteries in the house. This year is my wifes first year as a mother. She is a wonderful mom, and it was a joy to celebrate with her. In the future, who knows what she might get. Perhaps a goatee. I am so thankful for the mother I have. For the love and support she has given me over the years. Years full of wonderful memories. Mom, if you are reading this, God bless you, I love you very much.Gospel street service returns Sun City Christian Center will be hosting a musical street service Saturday, May 24, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the grassy area near the Wimauma Walmart at the corner of U.S. 301 and S.R. 674.

Marlene Frederick places flowers at the feet of the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary during a May Crowning ceremony.On May 1, following 8 a.m. Mass, the women of the Ancient Order of Hibernians held a special May Crowning of the Blessed Virgin Mary statue located in the prayer garden on the church grounds of Prince of Peace Catholic Church. The ceremony was one of reverent devotion as they gathered to ask for the intercession of the Blessed Mother. The rite of crowning the Blessed Virgin Mary originated in 1837 when Pope Gregory XVI placed crowns on an icon of Jesus and Mary. In Catholic tradition, statues are venerated not because of a belief that these images themselves possess anything of divinity or power but because the honor shown them is directed to the prototypes they represent.

Both organizations united to collect trash in Riverview for a 2.2-mile stretch of U.S. 301. It was a big day for both groups as each has a strong desire to support the local community in the best way possible. DeSoto lodge has a membership of about 300 men who are dedicated to supporting not only the community but local and national charities throughout the year. Many participants underestimated the task at hand as more than 14 large bags of trash were collected, each weighing approximately 25 pounds. The area has not been cleaned up in some time, so it may take a few events to get the region fully into shape.

As a teenager, he created the CKY video series, which featured skating, pranks and stunts, all filmed in his hometown of West Chester, Pa.

It seems if you dropped a line, you caught a fish. I saw many boats returning with great catches and happy anglers. Flounder have been swimming along with the redfish schools. Those fishing for reds caught their limit of flounder, too. Flounder is a lean fish with less than 5 percent fat. Some boaters fishing off Shell Point can easily get lost in the maze of mangroves. Once you get into this maze, it is difficult to find which channel gets you back into open water. They all look alike. I have heard stories of some boaters spending the night out there, waiting for daybreak to come ashore. These mangroves are a haven for snook. If youre going to get lost in them, I hope you bring home a nice catch to go along with your story. Mullet are plentiful in this warm weather. I came from the great Northwest, born near Seattle, so I had never heard of hushpuppies or mullet. Frozen hushpuppies are in most supermarkets, so anyone can enjoy them anytime. The mullet isnt easy to catch, unless you have mastered the cast Fish Tales: The history of hushpuppiesnet. They are a vegetarian fish and are not caught with any typical fish bait. Some fishermen have mastered the art of soft oatmeal balls for bait, but it takes a lot of practice to cast without losing your bait. For you who are history buffs: Over the years, I have been told by some early pioneers that hushpuppies originated in Ruskin. I dont know if this is true, but I do know that fish fries were the leading social events in this area. Families would gather together, and they all had dogs with them. The person cooking the fish became tired of the hungry dogs barking. The cook took some of the cornmeal batter used to coat the fish and dropped it into a pot with hot grease, let it cook, then cool, yelling to the dogs: Hushpuppies! This satisifed the dogs and quieted their barking. Enjoy our waters and go fishing.FISHH TA ALEES Ruskin Eagles Aerie 4351 1205 1st St. S.W.Ruskin Eagles Aerie 4351 hosts meetings on Thursdays: Aerie at 7 p.m. on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month; Auxiliary at 6 p.m. on the 2nd and 4th; Eagle Riders at 6 p.m. on the 3rd.Upcoming EEventsFriday . ...............................5:30 p.m. Kitchen opens. . ............................................ 6 p.m. Feather Your Nest Game.
