KarlCelebrating the Publication of Python Tales: World War II Memories of a Young SoldierThe Friends of the Library of Tampa-Hillsborough County Inc. welcome the family and friends of former county administrator, Frederick B. Karl, to a reception to celebrate his legacy and the publication of Python Tales: World War II Memories of a Young Soldier. The reception will be held Thursday, May 22, at 5:30 p.m. at the John F. Germany Public Library, Kotler Art Gallery, on the 2nd floor of 900 N. Ashley Drive, Tampa. Karl served as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Armys European Theater of Operations during World War II, and was wounded in the Battle of the Bulge. He was later awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart medals. Karl often said his war experiences as a tank commander during the Battle of the Bulge helped shape the rest of his life and spurred him into public service. That career in public service spanned more than 50 years and included all three branches of state government, as well as city and county governments. In 2010, Karl published his autobiography, The 57 Club: My Four Decades in Florida Politics. When Karl finally began writing Python Tales in 2012, he noted that most of the men and women actively involved in World War II had gone to a better place. Sadly, Karl joined these valiant The late Frederick B.

By LIA MARTIN lia@observernews.netAs Floridas population grows, major cities such as Jacksonville, Orlando, Tallahassee and Miami will need more water and electricity to power the load that growth always brings. Coal-burning and gasrun power plants may become a thing of the past, in spite of efforts to keep them open and environmentally more friendly. Enter the prospect of nuclear power. In most European and Asian countries, going nuclear already is a given. In 2008, Florida legislators agreed that there was no other way to power the state. And the Florida Public Service Commission knew it must plan to go nuclear. Later, it was believed that nuclear power plants would counterbalance global warming, no longer keeping the coal-fired plants burning. Because smaller cities like Tampa are not sure they can afford nuclear power plants, Duke Energy in St. Petersburg, as well as other local utility companies, are adding environmental changes to their coal-fired power plants required by the Environmental Protection Agency and the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, so they will not have Florida nuclear option growsto find the bigger bucks to power its communities. Gov. Rick Scott and Florida Cabinet members are allowing Florida Power and Light, the states biggest utility company, to finalize plans to add two new nuclear reactors to a plant outside Miami, as well as lay 88 miles of transmission lines. FPL has been working toward this end since 2006. The Department of Environmental Protection and the Florida Public Service Commission have supported this project since that time, in spite of residents from surrounding cities protesting. The cost of the project will be $24 billion. There is a concern that taxpayers will be paying for the reactors for years before they become a reality. More than one city is suing the state of Florida over this nuclear decision for violating original franchise agreements already in place. Miami city attorney Victoria Mendez said during the recent Cabinet meeting that the nuclear project needed to be brought before the courts because the decision to expand was too onesided. FPL says that the two new nuclear reactors would not come online until 2028, but it assures the community that the reactors will save its customers more than $64 billion over 40 years, the life of the reactors. FPL also is on record as saying it will add 8,000 jobs to the Miami-Dade County area. Coral Gables, along with Miami and Pinecrest, argue that FPL should be installing underground power lines. The affluent communities say they need to reduce the negative economic impact the above-ground power lines will bring on property values. FPL says that if the cities want underground lines, they need to pay for them. Mendez questions why Scott and his Cabinet recommended the nuclear project before the federal Nuclear Regulatory Commission has even given its blessing on the project. If there is never NRC approval of these nuclear reactors, then there should be no transmission lines built, and thats the key, Mendez said during the Cabinet meeting. It needs to be clear. However, FPL knows that state law will allow the utility to begin building transmission lines before the NRC approves the nuclear reactor project. If necessary, they can still use the lines for power from their natural gas plants. Coral Gables city attorney Craig Leen said his city had one small win. FPL would reduce its power pole height throughout the city, he said, though the 230-kilovolt power poles would still be from 77 to 85 feet tall. We saw the proposed order, Leen said. We were going to lose, so we tried to get as much as we could get out of this proceeding. We feel its in the best interests of the city.

Miami-Dade County residents will be asked to start paying for the transmission lines as soon as FPL gets approval from the Florida Public Service Commission. FPL is one of the biggest campaign contributors to the governors office, the Cabinet and the Republican Party of Florida. In 2010, FPL contributed $3 million to those three campaigns. Its time again for the Phil Pegley Black Tip Shark Shootout to benefit the Pediatric Cancer Foundation. The event is hosted by Hall of Fame baseball celebrity Wade Boggs, and will be held at the Little Harbor Resort & Club in Ruskin, May 30 and 31. On Sunday, May 25, there will be a Kids Fishing Derby.

By %  BARBARA BAKERHave you been overwhelmed by the idea of teaching your child everything? Guess what? Nobody teaches everything! You dont have to, either. So, take a deep breath, relax and read on. Curriculums run the gamut from very relaxed to very formal. The Internet, other moms (or dads), homeschool co-ops, state resources, and the Florida Parent Education Association are all resources that can help you develop the format best for your child. Formal curriculums can be purchased. They are designed to meet state standards and are often organized by grade level for elementary-school ages and by course for high-school age students. Parents can save money by purchasing through buyers coops or by participating in curriculum swaps. As homeschooling becomes more prevalent, thrifty buyers can even spot deals at yard sales. Sarah Puebla, an experienced homeschooler, states, You dont even have to buy a curriculum. As you become familiar with homeschooling and your childs learning style, you can use the Internet for free to develop your own curriculum. Bloggers on homeschool websites offer a wealth of information that make it fun and exciting for the parents as well as the kids. For example, on the website Homeschool Moms, writer Jeanne Faulconer has published a series of articles she dubbed The Instead of curriculum. One of her suggestions: Instead of putting children through the laborious learning-to-print workbooks, why not change it up and employ a variety of learning techniques? They can spray shaving cream on a large cooking sheet and form their letters with their fingers, fill in the blocks on forms such as contest entries, or go for a walk and spot letters inherent in the shapes of things they see, such as an O in the shape of a manhole cover. Another blogger, Laura Grace Weldon, wrote of the beauty of hands-on learning combined with the natural enthusiasm and curiosity of children. She simply gave a small group of children a hammer, nails and a hand saw (at an age-appropriate level) and let them create. She writes, They spent an afternoon planning their tree fort, enthusiastically arguing over whose plan was best. They were undaunted, even bragged a little about the noise the boards made falling down. Several of them asked family members for advice. A few others paged through books and watched YouTube videos as they tried to figure out basic construction techniques. They started again, and as they worked, they talked about how they would use their clubhouse. It didnt occur to them how much they were learning. Homeschool conventions are a rich source of information. Conventions offer sessions on numerous educational topics, and vendors are more than happy to demonstrate their wares, whether it be textbooks, curriculums, planning books, catalogs, workbooks or other educational tools. Dont have time to attend a convention? No problem. A website called WizIQ allows you to take in a conference online. WizIQ, voted the Best Virtual Classroom Provider in 2013 by the World Education Congress, also helps homeschool co-ops to setup their own conventions. Once you have developed a plan, it is time to get organized. Determine what your needs are for record keeping, lesson planning, and assignment materials. Time and space planning are integral parts of the homeschool process. If at all possible, create space dedicated to school. If you are homeschooling more than one student, you may have to plan for computer-sharing time.

Shellman, a student at Hillsborough Community College, plans to continue her nursing education at the University of South Florida. By%  JONIE MasASCHEkKMember: Florida Outdoor Writers Assn.Our South Bay waterways have been taken over by schools of redfish. Redfish is still a restricted species. It is from the drum family, and often referred to as red drum. A black spot is always found at the base of its tail. Its not unusal to find one with more than one signature black spot. The average weight of a redfish is about eight pounds, and the largest on record is 83 pounds. Redfish tastes great when baked with crab stuffing or fresh veggies. Legal limit is one per day, l8 inches minimum and 27 inches maximum. Flounder were in the swim last week instead of sleeping on the bottom. Fishermen following the redfish schools found that flounder were keeping them company. Popular in our waters is summer flounder, southern or ocellated. To catch this flatfish, youll need to dangle your bait over them while they are lounging on the bottom. Flounder is on most restaurant menus and is often fried, stuffed or baked. It takes practice to learn how to fillet a flat fish. One angler says he has a nail on his cutting board to attach the fish before trying to fillet it. Legal catch is l2 inches minimum, and 10 per harvest, per day. Cobia love our warm climate. In colder weather, they escape to the warm water flow of the TECO plant in Apollo Beach. Now is a great time to boat a cobia. Some call this fish black salmon. It is a Fish Tales: Redfish, cobia plentiful in our watersgame fish that may keep you occupied for more than an hour. Often called a lonewolf, it likes hiding behind buoys, old wrecks and channel markers. They will eat most any live bait. This fish is found all over the world, with different names. Good to eat if properly prepared by bleeding while still alive or trimming off the dark meat. Last week there were the usual catches of sheepshead. A lean white-meated fish and very good table fare, it is often called convict fish because of its black and white stripes. It has a bone-structured mouth that makes it difficult to set a hook. Freshwater anglers were happy with freshwater catfish, pan fish, and large-mouth bass catches. Some used artifical baits, others live worms. It was in May l988 that we experienced an industrial spill from the phosphate plant on U.S. 41 in Gibsonton. It was some time until fishing got back to normal. I wrote a story on this and that shows you how long I have been writing Fish Tales. Today, May 22, is my birthday, and I was surprised with a party given by the gals of my Sunday school class, thanks to Velma Holland, Christine Colding, Lillian Lane and Vicki Carpenter.FIISHH TALEES

JOEL BRANDENBURG www.anabananashing.comMay brings in the heavy hitters. The water temp goes into the mid to high 70s and big fish invade the bay and inland waters to feed and breed. The big fish in May are tarpon, king fish, cobia and shark. Here are tips on how to successfully target these May monsters! TARPON: Most of our bay area tarpon have made a two-month migration up the west coast from the Keys. They usually stay and feed and breed for a month or three, then they migrate back south. Some Monsters of Maygo farther north before heading back south, and we call them back sliders. Our tarpon seasons length is determined by weather. The better the weather, the more back sliders there are. The more back sliders, the longer the season because they visit the bay area coming and going. So we get two shots at the same fish weeks or months apart. Good weather means a good tarpon season. Site casting tarpon on the beaches is my favorite type of tarpon fishing. I like to cast live, hand-sized thread fins at them. But if the crabs are flowing, then I like to cast a live crab. Bridge fishing is fun, too. I like to fish with fresh dead, cut, hand-sized thread fins, not frozen and thawed. Tarpon can tell if its frozen. Its hard to fool Mother Nature! Tarpon tip of the year for bridge fishing is: chum, A LOT. KING FISH: Kings are here to feed and breed as well. Nothing is more exciting then to see a giant king fish launch on your bait and shoot 15 feet into the air like a rocket. King fish hang farther to the west out in the Gulf of Mexico, and some do migrate north and south. But most come from the deep. My favorite way to target kings in May is to slow troll, and I like to troll as slow as my boat will go. Slow trolling won team Ana Banana the King of the Beach Tournament a couple years ago. Trolling live lady fish and mullet is my favorite technique. Also try anchoring or drifting with balloons over your baits. Several captains swear by the kite technique. King fish tip of the year: Use as light a wire leader as you can. Wire leader size is determined by water celerity. Murky water, heavier wire; clear water = light wire. Also, always use a stinger rig. Over half of our caught kings were landed with the stinger hooks stuck in them. Their strike is so violent it helps to have two hooks on a single line. COBIA: If youve never hung into a huge cobia, definitely add that to your bucket list. Cobia can act dumb like a buck in rut or sly as a fox. In winter, we target huge cobias in and around the warm waters of power plants. We find them riding under rays, manatees and sea turtles. Starting in May we find them primarily daisy-chaining around markers, buoys, poles, shipping channel cans and bridges. In winter months, we find horseshoe crabs, blue crabs and stone crabs in their stomachs along with an occasional seahorse, baby bonnet head shark, star fish or sand dollar. Theory is they hang under big rays, manatees, and sea turtles who sweep the sand bottoms with their flippers, wings, or tails, brushing sand off the baits mentioned above. In May, cobias breed. The reason they are daisy-chaining around structures is so the male can spread his sperm to the fertile female. Many times in May, youll spot two cobia together, one monster and one small one. The females are bigger, with wide heads; males are smaller with narrow heads. Cobia tip of the year: Use live 8-inch stingrays for bait.

Dear Savvy Senior, What resources can you recommend for finding the value of old items? I inherited a large number of old antiques and unique art from my great aunt, and I would like to find out what some of these items are worth. Seeking Answers Dear Seeking, There are actually a number of resources and online tools available today that can help you find out the value of almost any item. Here are some tips to help you proceed. Get an Appraisal While many people use local antiques shops or collectable dealers to find out the value of old and/ or unique items, its usually best to use a certified appraiser whos accredited and meets professional and ethical standards. Certified appraisers are more likely to give you a fair judgment because theres no conflict of interest. Its actually a violation of professional ethics for an appraiser to offer to buy an item he or she has appraised. A professional appraiser will provide you a written report that includes a full description of your item and the procedure used to estimate its current value. For their service, you can expect to pay either a flat fee or an hourly rate from $200 to $400, depending on their expertise and location. Avoid an appraiser who asks for a fee based on a percentage of the items value. If an appraiser thinks an object isnt worth a written appraisal, he or she might recommend other resources to arrive at a value. To locate an appraiser either by location or specialty, search online at one of the three professional appraising organizations: the American Society of Appraisers (, 800-272-8258), which has around 5,000 members worldwide; Appraisers Association of America (appraisersassoc. org) that has around 700 members; and the International Society of Appraisers (, with about 900 members. Online resources You can also get estimates by professional appraisers and other experts through a number of websites. How it works: Upload photos of your items and provide descriptions, and the sites send back valuations usually within a week. Sites that provide this type of service include: Value My Stuff (, which charges $10 for one appraisal, $25 for three or $75 for 10; and WorthPoint (, which charges $30 for one item or $75 for three, or you can pay $20 for a monthly membership that provides unlimited access to their antiques and collectables valuations. Another resource for finding out what antiques and collectables are worth is Kovels (, 800829-9158), which offers a free basic membership that gives you access to its online price guide, or you can purchase one of their premium services that run $39 or $60 a year. They also sell the Kovels Antiques & Collectibles Price Guide 2014 for $28, which reports on recent prices paid for 35,000 items in more than 700 categories at auctions, shops, shows, flea markets and online. You may also be able to get an idea of what others are willing to pay for your stuff by searching similar items on the massive online auction site, or the classified ads site Both of these sites are free to search. Tax-deductible value If you are interested in donating any of your items, you can find out the tax-deductible value at free valuation sites available yearround by tax-prep companies such as Turbo Tax at com/personal-taxes/itsdeductible. The Salvation Army also offers a valuation guide at donation-value-guide. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

16 MAY 22, 2014 Best for Last! Elegant Paired Villas from the $160s Luxury Single-Family & Estate Homes from the low $200s to $400s TAMPA SARASO TA FLORIDAS NEW Russia revisitedWith all of the attention being given today to the incursion by Russian armed forces into Crimea and possibly the rest of Ukraine, a Kings Point, Sun City Center couple decided to revisit the most interesting tour they made of the old Soviet Union back in 1989. Pennsylvania natives Frank and Jackie Yanacek retired early from satisfying careers to ensure that they would be better fit to withstand the rigors of travel, particularly internationally. This revisit turned out to be a rewrite of a series of articles Frank wrote for the Anderson Independent Mail, the newspaper in Anderson, S.C., where they were living when they made their trip to the Soviet Union. In this latest series, they have updated and incorporated into their new article coverage of their trip that Jackie had included in her memoirs. This is the first segment of the series. Subsequent articles will be published in their entirety at By %  FRANK and JaACkKIE YANACECEK With world attention at the time focused on glasnost (openness) and perestroika (restructuring) introduced in the Soviet Union by President Mikhail Gorbachev, that country was right at the top of the list of places we decided to visit. We wanted to get a sneak preview of the many widespread ramifications that these movements were sure to have not only on the Soviet Union but also on the rest of the Eastern Bloc and, indeed, the entire world. We wanted to get a better look, up close and personal, of the Soviet Bear from whom we had been protected for so long by so many tax dollars. Before embarking on the trip, we spent many months learning and relearning information about the country, its language and its people. Frank had studied Russian 37 years earlier at the Army Language School in Monterey, Calif., and served as a Russian interpreter with the U.S. Army Security Agency in Germany in 1953. Since he had not used the language for some time, it took some effort to get up to speed. Jackie had also taken a couple of semesters of Russian in college, so she brushed up her skills as well. The months of preparation really paid off. Being able to speak directly with the people on the street, to get their firsthand thoughts on what was happening, and what they hoped would happen, in their country and the rest of the world was by far the most outstanding aspect of the trip. Including a day of travel in each direction, our trip to the Soviet Union covered 16 days. We visited five Soviet cities, traveling on a packaged tour with a group of 18 others. But we had plenty of free time in each city to explore on our own. Our flights to and from the USSR were on Pan Am 747s, which operated in conjunction FRANK YANACEK PHOTOSSt. Basils Cathedral, Moscow. The Kremlin wall and cathedral domes in Red Square, Moscow.with Aeroflot, the Soviet state airline. The crews of flight attendants consisted of Americans and Soviets alike. Our flights within the Soviet Union were all via Aeroflot. At the time we made our trip, many Americans mistakenly referred to the country we visited as Russia, and to its people as Russians. Actually, at that time, Russia was only one of 15 independent republics. Some of the others better known were the Baltic republics of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, and the Armenian, Georgian and Ukrainian republics. In 1991, two years after our visit, the Soviet Union, broke up in what Vladimir Putin, the current Russian president, recently called the biggest geopolitical tragedy of the 20th Century! Today, all 15 former Soviet republics are now, at least for the time being, depending on Putins agenda, independent nations. It is interesting to note that the Crimea, recently occupied by Russian armed forces, is a peninsula jutting into the Black Sea. It was mostly a tourist destination for the rest of the Soviet Union, and was part of the Russian Republic until it broke up. It was gifted to the Ukrainian Republic in 1954 by Nikita Khrushchev, the Soviet leader at the time. The gift was ostensibly to mark the 300th anniversary of Ukraines merger with the Russian empire. As a teenager, Khrushchev worked in Ukraines mines. He married a Ukrainian woman and considered the Ukraine one of his native lands. Today, Putin is apparently determined to take back that gift and possibly more. The 15 republics were home to a total of 115 different nationalities. The Russian language was the official language of the entire nation, although local languages were used extensively outside the Russian Republic, and several republics made failed efforts to make their native language the official language of their republic. The initials commonly used to denote the country, USSR, stand for Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. On Soviet maps, this was shown as CCCP in the Cyrillic alphabet, or SSSR in our alphabet. The first S is for the Russian word Soyuz, or Union. This same name, Soyuz, you may recall, was given to one of their initial space stations. In the course of our journey, we visited five cities in three different republics: Moscow and St. Petersburg (the latter was named Leningrad at the time of our visit) in Russia, Yalta and Kiev in the Ukrainian Republic, and Baku in Azerbaijan. In the latter two republics, the independent spirit of the natives was very evident. It would have been most interesting to visit the Baltic republics, or Georgia or Armenia, where widespread but relatively peaceful demonstrations were being held. Our travel and tours within the USSR were coordinated by Intourist, the Soviet state travel bureau. One native guide, Anna, an avowed Communist Party member, accompanied us on the entire tour. We also picked up a local guide in each city we visited. Although our visas provided for travel to only these five cities, we were free to travel on our own anywhere we wished within these broad areas. We are certain that we were not in any way followed, but we noticed that there were two or three policemen on most street corners! NEXT Were off!

Pictured is Mike Parsons, owner and tattoo artist; Meranda Campbell, office manager; Derek Raulerson, Matt Lang and Kurtis Todd, all tattoo artists. The smoke from a huge barbecue permeated the Shoppes at South Bend in Riverview last Sunday where Mike Parsons Ink celebrated its fourth annniversary in business. To thank his clientele, and to welcome new customers, there was barbecued pork and chicken with all the fixings, free to all who attended. The success of the local tattoo shop can be attributed to high quality artistry, an upscale, clean environment and a diverse customer base. Along with the barbecue prepared by pit bosses Ty Simmons and Steve Simmons there were tattoo gift card giveaways, a tandem low-rider bicycle raffle, and raffles for stereo equipment. A display booth and prizes were provided by Audio Plus Inc., and a custom car exhibit by Superior Autos For You was also at the event.

Neil Thomas of Kings Point got his first-ever tattoo from Mike Parsons Ink. He now has eight tattoos. Tom Mims, the chef at P.F. Changs restaurant, opted for a vegetable medley tattoo. It is in the finishing stage right now. The next prize was awarded to anyone with a pig or hog tattoo. No problem, this client obliged and took home his winnings.

Discount savingsto those who attend A+ Many hands pitch in to improve the landscape at My Warriors PlaceTraditionally, the first Saturday of May is dedicated to Join Hands Day, celebrated by fraternal organizations across the country. Its a day where youth and adults develop a special relationship by working on a community project together, an activity that will make a difference in their community. This year the project was My Warriors Place, and the group that turned out was significant: students and two teachers from East Bay High Schools Agriscience and Technology department; youth and adults from the Gulf Coast Arbor, a fraternal organization sponsored by The Gleaner Life Insurance Society; members of Rolling Thunder, an advocacy group for POWs; and Bay Area Arbor members. In all, more than 60 students and adults worked together on their special project. My Warriors Place, located on the Manatee River in Ruskin, is a campground and retreat center where veterans, military service people and those families who have lost a loved one in the military can go and heal. Organizers plan a formal property dedication on Sunday, June 22, at 1 p.m. In order to meet the June deadline, My Warriors Place needed assistance with landscaping. This is where the expertise of the agriscience students at East Bay High School came into play. Most students are FFA (formerly Future Farmers of America) members who are developing leadership skills and career success through agriculture education. Other students came from Sarasota to join in the activities of the day. Students and adults worked on planting flowers and bushes, wood chips, building a walking bridge, installing a pond, laying sprinkler lines and painting. The plan to tackle this major venture was handled by the members of the Bay Area Arbor and the Gulf Coast Arbor, who worked with teachers and students to create a plan. Funding came from The Gleaner Life Insurance Society. Gleaner created its arbor system as a way to support and encourage its members to work together through service projects by doing good things for people and the community. Additional information on The Gleaner Life Insurance Society can be found at Step up to the Hillsborough Hack-a-thon Challenge May 31Hillsborough County is a growing technology community designated as one of the host areas in Florida to participate in the National Day of Civic Hacking. As part of the national celebration, technologists, entrepreneurs, developers and residents will join together for the Hillsborough Hack-a-thon to network, develop and improve civic participation. As part of the Countys Economic Development Innovation Initiative program, the Hack-a-thon will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday, May 31, at the ITT Technical Institute campus, 4809 Memorial Highway in Tampa. This year, the Hillsborough Hack-a-thon will use open data provided by HART, Tampa Hillsborough Expressway Authority and Carvoyant to present participants with an unusual transportation-themed challenge. The goal is to develop a software application that can help Hillsborough County residents and businesses. The 32-hour hacking challenge aims to illustrate the power of open government practices, particularly where data are readily available to support meaningful collaboration between the public and private sectors. During the event, participants will use their diverse expertise and entrepreneurial spirit to focus on making an impact on the local community by using historical and real-time transportation data to create an innovative software application. National Day of Civic Hacking is a unique opportunity to bring together some of the best and brightest minds in the technology community to push forward civic innovation and open idea-sharing. The event is free and open to the public. Developers and other interested participants can register online. For more information, visit www.

But the most exciting part is that I took my first Osceola on a great hunting trip with my wife to Martin County, thereby getting my Florida Slam (shooting both subspecies of wild turkeys that reside in the state). And what a true trophy bird and wonderful vacation it was. My college friend, Matt McGuire, had been trying to get Katie and me to come down to hunt with him on his good friend Lance Troups cattle ranch. So thats exactly what we did and that gorgeous property did not disappoint. I am a lifelong Floridian and have spent the majority of my days hunting the red hills of the Panhandle, so this south Florida landscape was new to me and its beauty captivating. We were there for a three-day hunt, and it was on the second morning when we struck gold. Matt and Katie sat in a blind we had made from palmetto fronds with three decoys out in front. Matt was doing the calling, and Katie the shooting. I sat in another ground blind 150 yards away with no decoys, and except for some soft, predawn tree yelps, I wasnt going to make a sound. If the turkeys walked their way, perhaps Katie would get a shot. And if they came my way, maybe I could. That morning, without hearing a single gobble from the tree, I turned out to be the lucky one when two big toms came in silence from behind me and crossed right in front of my blind. When the opportunity presented itself, I raised my 12gauge 870 pump and rolled the bigger of the two, and when I walked over and put my hands on him, I realized my first Osceola was also my very first bird to qualify for the Florida Turkey Registry. One spur was 1.5 inches, the other was 1.25 inches, and his beard was 11.25 inches. A trophy gobbler in any state! The next couple days, we continued to hunt hard for a bird for Katie, but never could get one within shooting distance before we had to head back home to Tallahassee. But thats hunting for you.Now that its May and turkey season in Florida is over, its time to apply for gator hunting permits, and that is yet another hunting tradition that my wife and I love to do together.Have you ever wondered how cool it would be to fight and bring into the boat a 10-foot alligator? If youve never hunted gator before, to me its a combination of hunting and fishing. Since 1988, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission has offered hunters the opportunity to take part in its annual recreational statewide alligator harvest. These special hunts provide a thrilling, handson hunting adventure unlike any other you could imagine. Alligator season spans about 11 weeks and always runs from Aug. 15 through Nov. 1. Heres how you can apply for the more than 5,000 permits that will be available. The Phase I application period has closed for this season, but Phase II begins at 10 a.m. tomorrow, Friday. May 23, and runs through Monday, June 2. However, those who drew a permit in Phase I and paid for it cannot apply during Phase II. And, hunters applying during Phase II must submit a new application. Phase II results will be posted after 10 a.m. on Friday, June 6. Hunters who drew a permit during this application period must pay for it by June 16, or it will again be placed back into the system and be available for all during Phase III. Any permits remaining after the first two application periods can be purchased during Phase III on a first-come, first-served basis beginning at 10 a.m. on Friday, June 20, until all are sold. Anyone may participate during Phase III even those who bought a permit in Phase I or II. Submit your no-cost application at any tax collectors office, license agent or online at The cost for your first alligatortrapping license and two hidevalidation tags is $272 for Florida residents and $1,022 for nonresidents. No hunting license or other permits are required to go gator huntin. Each permit allows you to take two alligators from whichever county or body of water you were awarded during a specific harvest period. You must be at least 18 years old by opening day, Friday, Aug. 15, to purchase one. If youd rather assist a friend whos purchased an alligator trapping license, you can pay just $52 for an alligator trapping agent license. So if youd like to do some gator giggin, visit Alligator and click on Statewide Alligator Hunts for more information on these exciting gator huntin opportunities. As always, have fun, hunt safely and ethically, and well see you on the water!Raymond James Stadium to host U.S. Soccer WNT vs. France on June 14The U.S. Soccer Womens National Team will face France in a pair of summer friendlies on Saturday, June 14, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, and Thursday, June 19, at Rentschler Field in East Hartford, Conn.

She lived in Missouri most of her life and, later in life, she married Roy Paulsen on September 25, 2004. Martha loved being called Marty, and she loved laughing and having fun with whomever she was with. She loved music, dancing, and she was a loving and devoted wife of Roy Paulsen, and their family and friends. The couple moved to Sun City Center in May 2010, and she joined the Emergency Squad in May 2012. Visitation was held at Sun City Center Funeral Home on May 8, followed by a funeral service. In lieu of flowers, please send contributions to Sun City Center Emergency Squad, 720 Ray Watson Drive, Sun City Center, FL 33573. Arrangements by Sun City Center Funeral Home. In Loving MemoryTodd LeRoy OverholtNov. 11, 1970 May 23, 2013Todd, you left us a year ago today. Not a day goes by that we do not think about you and miss you. Our comfort comes in knowing you are free. We will always love and miss you. Dad, Mom, Amy and WendyThe moment that you died our hearts were torn in two, one side filled with heartache, the other died with you. We often lay awake at night, when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane, with tears upon our cheeks. Remembering you is easy, we do it every day, but missing you is heartache that never goes away. We hold you tightly within our hearts and there you will remain, until the joyous day arrives, that we will meet again. Va.; grandson Troy Geoghegan of Richmond, Va.; sister Avis Heyduk of Brookings, S.D.; and brother Dennis Zwart of Barronett, Wis. Friends, neighbors and acquaintances can pay their respects at the Memorial Mass to be held later in May at Prince of Peace Catholic Church.Saturday and Sunday, June 7 and 8, respectively, members of the Riverview SeventhDay Adventist Church invite their friends and neighbors to join them in worship. Services on Saturday start at 9:15 a.m. with a no pressure Bible study. The main worship service starts at 11 a.m., followed by a buffet luncheon. Between noon and 6 p.m. on Sunday, the church will hold a giveaway program; everything is free. There are some mens, womens and childrens clothing; household items; decorative items; and new books. The church also will offer blood pressure and BMI checks, with a resident physician on hand. In addition, church members will demonstrate juicing techniques; samples of juices and smoothies will be available. A registered dietician will offer recipes as well as other healthy alternative recipes. The churchs youth group, the Pathfinder Club, will demonstrate their drill and marching skills. Information on their various activities will be available. The Riverview Seventh-Day Adventist Church is at 10401 Holland Drive in Riverview. All are invited. Once, while I was reading a newspaper, my young son was trying to get my attention. He had an urgent need for me to recognize his presence and respond to his request. But I was absorbed in the news. Dad, he said, Im talking to you! Yes, son, Im listening, I replied. I know you are listening, Dad, but can you hear me? was his embarrassing response. There is an obvious difference between listening and hearing. It is easy to listen without recognizing the presence of the person trying to get our attention. When we actually hear someone, the message goes to our heart and we can sense their feelings and do something about their needs. David said, Turn and answer me, O Lord, my God! He feared that God had abandoned him, turned His face in the other direction and he was on his own. He was so discouraged that he felt the light of God had left his eyes and he would die. But that was only a temporary, fleeting feeling, and he did not give up. In fact, he recalled Gods presence and protection in the past and knew that God would never abandon him. So, he was able to declare, I trust in your unfailing love! And he turned his worry into worship. Notice what he said: I will rejoice and I will sing two central themes in true worship. David did not wait for his problems to pass. In the midst of his difficulties he stopped worrying and began to worship. Why? Because He has been so good to me!

Del Webb Blvd. Larrys music career began when he climbed up on a chair at five years old at his home church in Levelland, Texas. Accompanied by his mother on the piano, he sang his first solo, How Great Thou Art. Fifty years later, Larry has sung that same song in English, Spanish, Swedish, Russian, Italian and Norwegian. Larrys music ministry has taken him to 49 states and to more than 30 foreign countries. Larrys training is in classical music, having studied privately as a teenager with an Italian vocal coach. He attended Eastern New Mexico University on a music scholar ship. After working for two years as a pilot, Larry sang briefly with The Downings as a featured soloist. He sang tenor with the Dixie Echoes and The James Blackwood Quartet. In recent years, many invitations have been extended as a result of Larrys participation in the Gaither Homecoming recordings. Larry has often been a featured soloist on the recordings and has become closely associated with the songs, Little is Much When God is In It, Sing of My Redeemer, Follow Me and O, What a Savior. Concertgoers are encouraged to arrive early for a good seat. A donation of just $5 is requested at the door. For additional information about this and other concerts and recitals at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, call Jeff Jordan, director of worship arts, at 813-634-2539.Prince of Peace to hold Franciscan profession MassOn Friday, May 23, at 10 a.m., Prince of Peace Catholic Church will host a special profession Mass to welcome three parishioners to the Secular Franciscan Order. The three candidates Elaine Gibbs, John Kemper and John Main will become members of the San Damiano Fraternity. Each individual has been studying for three years and is now ready to take this final step to become a professed member of the Secular Franciscan Order. Members of the San Damiano Fraternity of the Secular Franciscan Order emulate St. Francis of Assisis great love of God, devotion to the Gospel and Cross of Christ, and joyful appreciation of the beauty of all Gods creation. They strive to achieve holiness while bringing the Gospel message to the world through the example of their lives. Prince of Peace Catholic Church is located at 702 Valley Forge Blvd. in Sun City Center. For more information, visit A beautiful tradition continues ...During May the Catholic Church honors the Blessed Mother Mary and her mother, Saint Anne. For the third consecutive year, parishioners of Saint Anne Catholic Church have expanded on that tradition by using Mothers Day to honor and remember all the women who fulfill a special role in their lives. Named Sunday of 1,000 Roses, that original goal has been far surpassed with 3,600 roses on display this year. In addition to the logistics of organizing the event and publishing a list of all those women to be honored or memorialized, it took a committee of 12, led by chairwomen Sandy Ottino and Cissy Barr, two full days to sort, trim, arrange and display the flowers. This floral tribute also requires constant attention during the 10 days that it remains on display, as spent flowers must be removed and those remaining continually watered and monitored. For more information about Saint Anne Parish, visit Each Wednesday from 8:45 a.m. until 3 p.m., Prince of Peace Catholic Church holds Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the church. Adoration is a sign of devotion to and worship of Jesus Christ, who is believed by Catholics to be present Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity, under the appearance of the consecrated host. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament flows from the sacrifice of the Mass and serves to deepen hunger for ComAdoration of the Blessed Sacramentmunion with Christ and the rest of the Church. Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament concludes at 3 p.m. with Benediction. The church invites everyone to come spend an hour with the Lord in prayer in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament.

Fine Quality Home Interior ItemsSales Every Day! DONT FORGET3rd Saturday of each month is our Customer Appreciation Saleup to 75% OFF Seniors vs. Crimef Norman Meyers, who used to teach at Stetson [University], was drafted to manage the office and help structure it, said Granan, referring to an attorney who has since practiced locally. All who work with the organization are volunteers, said Larry Sullivan. We have three ways to help. Some people come in with a problem, and we help them with that particular problem. But we also participate in trade shows and give talks to local organizations to inform them about our services. The third way we can help is to take on cases sent to us by the Attorney Generals staff by computer. Once a scam is reported to the office, the volunteers assign someone to follow it up. Granan, Gause and Sullivan said that a lot of work is done during the winter season by Brian Stevenson, who was not present for the interview because he spends half the year up North. We work closely with our local Community Resource Deputy Jason Castillo, said Granan. We keep a list and a file cabinet and make a file of every individual who comes in with a complaint, Granan said. This is the way we know that sometimes there are many complaining parties with the same problem. In 2013, the Sun City Center volunteers worked on 62 cases and did 69 assists, which are separate from complaints. The assists are when someone calls in and is referred elsewhere, such as the Sheriffs Office or to an agency, Granan explained. We also had four criminal referrals and 12 complaints we worked on and turned over to other agencies, he added. For the year, the value of items recovered was $9,525.73. Clients received $20,520 back in monetary value. Gause explained that sometimes a service person, such as a plumber or roofer, might start a job and not finish it, or take money in advance and not do the job. Other times, service people can get shorted if they contract to do a job for a certain amount and then find much more damage than was expected and are held to the original amount in a contract. It can work both ways, Granan said. Lets say there was plumbing damage, and the plumber came in and, while fixing that, the carpet was ruined. Fault must be investigated to be certain the right parties are reimbursed or paid. Pat Hanna is regional director of Seniors vs. Crime, Granan said. He came personally to our district, which consists of Hillsborough, Polk and Pinellas counties, and thanked us [for our help]. He reports to Don Ravenna, who is in charge of all the Florida sites. Still, the group remains a special project of the Florida Attorney Generals Office. The examples of what the group can do are varied. Fred and Bryan are neighbors in Kings Point, Granan said. They were part of a group of five neighbors who complained about a driveway resurfacing problem. Because we had several complaints about the same thing, we went after the person who had performed inferior work, and he promised he would make it good. He did, and so five homeowners were helped even though their efforts only reflected in one case. A recurring problem is yard work. People often pay in advance for yard work, maybe by the month, and then they pay ahead and the work is never done, Granan said. Another current scam concerns people who want to sell their time shares, said Gause. The con artist sends out free lunch invitations to people they know are desperate to sell, and then collects money up front and disappears, she explained. Never pay upfront in such a case, she said. Charges that are recurring are often made inadvertently online as well, she said. Anyone who thinks they have been scammed, or who wants to check something out before entering into an agreement, may call 800-203-3099 or visit www. In South County, they may visit the local office at 137 S. Pebble Beach Blvd., (on the second floor) Suite 204, or call 813-634-8666. The email there is This program is open to anyone who thinks they may be involved in a scam or have been defrauded. Make a splash at Bayou, Boats & BBQCamp Bayou will host a National Trails Day event, Bayou, Boats and BBQ, on Saturday, June 7, from 9 a.m. to noon. This free event will be water-themed with fish-casting, water games, splash ball and critter-netting in the river, to name just a few. Organizations participating include SWFWMD, Florida Aquarium, Little Manatee River State Park, AmeriCorps, League of Environmental Educators in Florida, Florida Master Naturalists and Camp Bayou volunteers. Take a Waters Journey while visiting each of the display tables to be entered into a raffle to win a Summer Fun bag, winner to be announced at noon. A special event price of $10 for canoe rentals will allow you to paddle around the oxbow island for up to an hour. First come, first served. If you have your own canoe or kayak, feel free to bring them to join the paddle around the oxbow at no charge. If bringing your own boat, launch at the end of 24th Street or bring a caddy, since cars will not be allowed near the dock for this event due to safety concerns. Its also Butterfly Education and Awareness Day, and Camp Bayou will celebrate in the butterfly habitat with kid-friendly butterfly activities. Heather Nicole Photography, a local business that specializes in themed, natural-light photography, will be set up at the fishing cabins for some Old Florida photos. The fishing cabins will be open with exhibits that highlight the historical uses of the river.

You can view or purchase tiles online by visiting the Square Market store: unique-nature-tiles Camp Bayou is neither a campground nor a summer camp. It was an RV park before the Countys Environmental Lands Acquisition and Protection, or ELAP, program pur chased the land, but it is now open for day use only, open to the general public. Through volunteers, donations, supporters and grants, the Center offers prescheduled programs to schools, youth groups, adult groups and families, plus its open from Thursday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. for passive recreational pursuits such as wildlife watching, nature photography and trail walks. The Camp Bayou Outdoor Learning Center is managed by the nonprofit Bayou Outdoor Learning & Discovery Inc., in a public-private partnership with the nonprofit Ruskin Community Development Foundation Inc. and Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and Conservation.
