Only one vote
* By MELODY JAMESON
What does my little ole single vote really matter.
Is this you? After all, the kids...school...work...the
house...supper...your plate is pretty full, every day.
If you've put off early voting and are trying not to
think about election day next week on November 2,
you might want to consider Henry Shoemaker.
In August of 1842, Henry was working on a farm
in rural Indiana. It was hot, the fall harvest was right
around the corer, Henry had plenty to do. But, he
also recalled it was election day. And Henry, person-
ally, had promised to vote for one particular fellow
seeking a seat in the state legislature. Henry saddled
a horse and rode into town to mark his ballot.
He did as he had promised Madison Marsh he
would do. And, wouldn't you know it, Marsh was
named to the legislature by just one vote. But
that's not the end of the story.
A few months later, in January, 1843, at the state
capital, Marsh was engaged with his fellow legisla-
tors in vigorous debate over who should be Indi-
ana's next U.S. Senator. At that point in America's
political history, the states' federal representatives
were chosen by their legislatures, not by popular
vote. And, Indiana's could not agree. Roll call after
roll call after roll call and the assembly remained
deadlocked. Finally, on the sixth roll call, Marsh
addressed his brother legislators. "Gentlemen," he
said. "I'm changing my vote. My support goes to
Edward Hannegan." With that single statement,
Marsh broke the deadlock. And, Edward Hannegan
became Indiana's U.S. Senator. That, though, still is
not the end of the story.
By all accounts, Hannegan served his fellow In-
dianians during his years as their U.S. Senator with
high competence. In fact, his would become a his-
toric role. In 1846, a few years after his selection,
congress was mired in deeply serious, painfully
passionate argument over whether to declare war on
Mexico. The disagreement raged, with doves calling
for more time, patience, diplomacy, congressional
hawks asserting that time was at hand for America
to defend her interests, demonstrate her might, put a
stop to what was thought of as Mexico's marauding.
Indiana's Senator Hannegan was not on the floor as
the debate was being waged, but ultimately he was
sent for as the lack of consensus became ever more

A ghost story
* Continued from page 1
The Queen Mary, today a floating
hotel permanently berthed in Long
Beach, Calif., is said to be one of
the most haunted places on earth.
Launched in 1934 as one of the
world's most glamorous transatlan-
tic ships, she served in World War
II as a troop ship, carrying nearly
800,000 American troops to battle
in Europe. At least 49 people died
aboard the ship, some of whom are
said to still roam the companion-
Yet perhaps ironically, reports of
ghosts aboard the ship didn't be-
gin until it arrived in California in
Paranormal expert Erika Frost
guided our small group to the long-
closed first class swimming pool on
the Queen Mary which some be-
lieve is the most haunted place on
the ship. I saw, felt, and heard noth-
ing. We then entered the women's
dressing area. It was a narrow hall
lined with small stalls. The guide
asked each of us to stand in a stall
while she turned off her flashlight.
She said it was a very active place
and suggested we needed to accli-
mate to the dark. A few moments
later, she said she saw something.
One woman suddenly decided she
had heard enough and quickly left.
The light went out again. After sev-
eral long moments, she turned the
light on again and seemed some-
what taken aback that her three re-
maining guests weren't reporting

As I walked back out towards the
dimly lit and empty pool, I decided
not to mention that something had
gently tussled my hair in the dark
while I was alone in the small stall.
I also decided not to mention that
I was suddenly surrounded by the
fragrance of lavender; a fresh, Old
World scent that briefly replaced
the musty, damp odor of the long-
abandoned changing room.
On a previous visit to the ship in
2007, I frequently noticed a distinct
scent of lavender perfume outside
of my stateroom door. No one was
staying in the adjoining room, nor
did I ever see anyone in the vicin-
ity when I noticed the scent. But
I'm certain it was the same laven-
der fragrance I was enveloped in
while standing in the darkness of
the dressing room. It was the same
lavender I smelled again outside of
the very same stateroom while my
wife slept peacefully inside on this
Later that night, chills went up
my spine as I listened to my record-
ing of the whispers in the cargo
hold. Due to a hearing impairment,
I wear digital hearing aids in both
ears. The microphones of the small
devices are behind each ear. In the
darkness, I could hear the whispers
as though someone unseen was
speaking directly behind me, into
the tiny microphones. The question,
"Can you see words in the dark?"

I sent the tour guide an email tell-

a lavender scent waited for a gentle-

her. Or, perhaps, he never showed
up. I really hope he did, though.

reach my cabin door in the early
morning darkness, I turned and

In this column I have talked about
leadership a number of times and
have described it in many different
ever, just as
being a lead-
er is not an
easy thing to
do, neither is
Positive In Aesop's
Talk fable, "The
By William Hodges Blind men
and the El-
the blind men were partially right
in the way they described the el-
ephant, so are my previous efforts
to describe a leader. Here are some
more ideas on how to be a leader.
A leader recognizes that people,
no matter what their social, eco-
nomic or intellectual standing,
have a deep-seated desire to feel
successful. If the leader can help
the follower to achieve some level
of success, the follower will have
a continuing desire to maintain the
leader's position of power. This is
an important point since you can
be a leader only if you can find
someone to follow you.
Leaders must realize that most
people treat change as their natural
enemy. They must make the fol-
lowers feel they have some control
over change and nurture their de-
sire to participate in it. The follow-
ers must believe that the requested
change is their own idea. Dwight
David Eisenhower addressed this
when he said, "Leadership is the
art of getting someone else to do
something you want done because
he wants to do it."
Leaders must create a safe cli-
mate within which even the most
timid of their followers will feel
comfortable. Near the very bottom
of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs
is the basic need of security. Until
that need is met, fear will be the
prime demotivator of any produc-
A leader must be like the helms-
man of a ship, using a soft touch to
nudge his followers in the desired
direction. The leader must provide
constant corrective action, not
condemnation, to the followers.
A leader must reward the fol-
lowers' efforts. There are two
reasons why most of us do things.
The first is fear of punishment and
the second is the hope of reward.
Punishment is a poor motivator-
transient at best-for proper ac-
tion. The most effective motivator
is for the followers to see that it is
in their best interest to act in a par-
ticular way. It is the leader's task
to show the followers the rewards
of their actions.
When we choose to be a leader or
we have leadership responsibilities
thrust upon us, we also assume the
responsibility for other people's
lives. But if you will help them to
succeed, cope with change, make
them feel safe, give them posi-
tive feedback, and provide them
with an adequate reward for their
efforts, you cannot help but reap
even greater rewards for yourself.
As a final thought, consider this
Eskimo proverb about leader-
ship: "Only the lead sled dog gets
a change of view." Do you like
what you see from where you are?
If not, give leadership a try; you
might like it.

Nature enjoyed at Camp Bayou
Nature lovers of all ages explored the preserve to find butterflies, birds,
aquatic invertebrates, frogs, and plants during the USA Science and En-
gineering Festival Satellite event held on Oct. 23 at Camp Bayou Out-
door Learning Center in Ruskin.
Between hourly walks, folks made pine cone bird feeders, butterfly
puppets, beautiful drawings of critters and gathered cuttings of potted
native plants to grow at home. At noon, participants enjoyed solar hot
dogs, sun tea and solar s'mores prepared in the solar oven.
Learn more about the USA Science and Engineering Festival. This
event is also a Be Out There!, Get Outdoors Florida, a Children and
Nature and No Child Left Inside inspired initiative.
Camp Bayou is neither a campground nor a summer camp. It was an
RV park before the County's ELAP program purchased the land, but
it is now open for day use only, to the general public. Through volun-
teers, donations, membership and grants, the RCDF offers pre-scheduled
programs to schools, youth groups, adult groups and families plus it's
open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday-Saturday for passive recreational
pursuits such as wildlife watching, nature photography and trail walks.
General admission is free.

nership between the non-profit Ruskin Community Development Foun-
dation, Inc. (RCDF) and Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation and

Lennard High School launches Drama Booster Club
Drama students at Lennard
High School in Ruskin presented
'Dracula,' a short two-act play by

at Lennard. "The set, costumes,

This is Joie Marsh's third year
at Lennard High School and as a
drama and reading teacher for the
Hillsborough County School Dis-

ern College with a B.A. in Theatre
Arts, Marsh has produced five
plays to date at LHS and is herself
a participant in local theatre pro-
ductions of the Pelican Players'
Club of Sun City Center.
"I am really proud of our drama
students; they worked very hard to
produce this fall show in only four
weeks since district competitions
in drama are scheduled to begin
soon," said Marsh. "They have
done a phenomenal job, and I see
a growing interest in the theatre
arts within our student body as a
The school's growing drama
program has had a few obstacles
to overcome. Marsh is the third
full-time teacher to supervise the
program since Lennard opened its
doors in 2006, and funding for sets,
costumes, and dramatic events has
been scarce. "Lately, we've been
breaking even financially from
our performances, but we would
really like to enhance our produc-
tions," said Marsh. "For exam-
ple, although the auditorium was
originally equipped with a limited
sound system that allows for hand-
held microphones on the stage,
that system has not been practical
for our dramatic productions and
we need a wireless microphone
system that will allow our young
actors and actresses to be read-
ily heard by the audience. I think
that we would expand our audi-
ence in the communities of Ruskin
and Sun City Center if they could
hear our performers more easily."
Parents of drama students at LHS
This year, a group of drama par-
ents has organized a new LHS
Drama Booster Club to raise fund-
ing for the program. Led by Mary
Ferguson of Apollo Beach, Presi-
dent of the Drama Booster Club
and parent of a drama student
at LHS, the group hopes to raise
enough money to purchase a new
sound system by the school's next
theatre production to be performed
during the first weekend in March.
The new club is looking for local
business sponsors and patrons,
and has a series of fundraising
events planned for the next several
According to Mary Ferguson, the
Drama Club will be holding its first
fundraising activity on Sunday,
Nov. 14, when local homebuilder
KHovnanian Homes is sponsoring
a Drama Club car wash at Harbour
Isles. "KHovnanian Homes will
pay the Drama Club $8 per car
wash during the event," said Fer-
guson. "Our young thespians will
wash cars from 1 in the afternoon
to about 5 in the afternoon for free,
and KHovnanian will pick up the
bill for every car wash. Of course,
all additional donations would be
much appreciated! Every dollar
we make will enhance our theatri-
cal productions in the future, and
we hope to make Lennard High
School's dramatic performances
an event that everyone will want
to attend." Harbour Isles is located
on Hwy. 41 between Apollo Beach

ANTHONY B. MAGEE
Anthony B. Magee graduated
from the Army ROTC (Reserve
Officer Training Corps) Leader
Development and Assessment
Course, also known as 'Operation
Warrior Forge,' at Fort Lewis, Ta-
The 32 days of training provide
the best possible professional train-
ing and evaluation for all cadets in
the aspects of military life, admin-
istration and logistical support.
Although continued military train-
ing and leadership development
is included in the curriculum, the
primary focus of the course is to
develop and evaluate each cadet's
officer potential as a leader by
exercising the cadet's intelligence,
common sense, ingenuity and
physical stamina. The cadet com-
mand assesses each cadet's per-
formance and progress in officer
traits, qualities and professional-
ism while attending the course.
Cadets in their junior and senior
year of college must complete the
leadership development course.
Upon successful completion of the
course, the ROTC program, and
graduation from college, cadets
are commissioned as second lieu-
tenants in the U.S. Army, National
Guard, or Reserve.
The cadet is a student at Florida
A&M University, Tallahassee.
He is the son of Lena Thomas of
Ruskin and nephew of Monique
Thomas of Coral Springs.
Magee is a 2005 graduate of
Coral Springs High School.

SCC CA board
* Continued from page 1
Barnes, after serving his first
term, is seeking another three years
and Floyd, appointed last May to
serve out until the first election the
unexpired term of a former direc-
tor, John "Woody" Nelson, now
is interested in election to his first
A sixth candidate, Bob Black, is
to fulfill the remaining year of Nel-
son's term and will assume the one-
year director's seat as no opposition
developed to compete for it.
The other vacancies on the board
have been created by ending of
Barnes' first term, Black's decision
to take on only the one-year situ-
ation and the retirement of Direc-
tor Don Schings, who soon will
have completed two full three-year
terms. Barnes has been board presi-
dent two years running, Black has
served as the board vice president
during the last year and Schings,
former board treasurer, has been
particularly active in connection
with regional transportation issues.
Yet another vacancy among the
directors was created with the re-
cent, sudden resignation of Director
Anne Cross, citing "personal rea-
sons." Cross' successful projects as
a director included the 2009 holi-
day golf cart parade, the completed
community plan and leadership in
the golf carts crossing to WalMart
The remaining, unfulfilled por-
tion of the Cross term will be
served by an appointee to the board
seat selected by the newly consti-
tuted board when it convenes early
in 2011, Barnes said this week. By
law, that appointee then will serve
until the next election.
Barnes, described by his vice
president, Black, as a strong and
fair leader, is a business consultant
Ed Barnes sitions in-
volving contract negotiations with
the U.S. Department of Defense.
He told The Observer this week
that if elected to a second term he
would focus on polishing the Sun
City Center image to maintain its
competitiveness as a retirement
destination with such communities
as The Villages in Central lorida.
Identifying and implementing ef-
ficiencies and improvements to
enhance SCC's desirability is not
unlike attaining sales agreements
with DOD, he indicated.
Erickson, whose technical back-
ground includes 15 years with Tex-
as Instruments working on radar
and global positioning systems in
America's fighter aircraft, said he
hopes his analytical skills might be
useful applied to the various prob-
lems confronting the CA board.

noting he's most interested in SCC
issues which relate to county gov-
ernance and in disposition of the
now-idle North Lakes Golf Course.
The ability to assess the problem
from all angles and break it down
into components, he said, often can
lead to satisfactory resolutions.

on the college level, worked in ma-
jor health and beauty products cor-
has served in
tions on a city
council and a

tion and beau- David Floyd
behalf of the community, he said
this week. His first six months ful-
filling an unexpired term have been
a learning experience, he noted, in-
dicating he's ready to tackle devel-
opment of a five or 10- year plan
for maintaining the SCC standard
among retirement centers, to work
with Minto Communities, the new
developer, in promoting the com-
munity and to create a program
focused on upkeep of the Pebble
Beach and S.R. 674 medians.
Jacobs is a Florida-licensed attor-
ney whose background includes ex-
ecutive management in aluminum
products manufacturing, respon-
sible for several sections and some
2,000 employees. Since relocating
to SCC about 15 years ago, Jacobs
has been active with the Security
Patrol, on his local architectural
standards committee and was co-
founder with the late Larry Brown
of the SCC Golf and Social Club,
Inc., which sought to spotlight both
assets and liabilities in connection
with the community's golf courses
and its related facilities. Jacobs said
that as an elected director he would
be sitting as a citizen of SCC com-
mitted to enhancing value of the
community's assets and interested
in seeing "the board operate as it is
mandated to do," including activa-
tion of its standing committees such
as the dormant legal committee.
Sudman, who spent 34 years in
the U.S. Army reserves retiring
is a mi-
tion of his Sam Sudman
directing public health laboratories
in Tennessee and Illinois, oversee-
ing technical support to a range of
public health programs. He also
holds a MBA in executive man-
agement. This background "taught
me how to think," he told The Ob-
server, specifically how to apply
holistic strategy analyses, how to
attain conflict resolution and how
to build consensus among diverse
personalities. If elected, Sudman
said he'd like to establish a work-
ing relationship with area chambers
of commerce, as well as with Minto
Communities and with ClubLink,
the new golf course owner, in or-
der to build the kind of surrounding
business context the community
needs to thrive.
Black, a current director com-
pleting his first term who has cho-
sen not to seek another three-year
stretch "I would be almost 85
by the time I finished it and I have
other things to do, too" is a shoo-
in for the remaining year on Nel-
son's term. He said he'd like to see
Barnes re-elected and re-appointed
dent and see
not yet re-
Bob Black with Clu-
bLink concerning the use of the
Sandpiper course by players from
outside the community. Black, with
an extensive background in public
information, also said he would
serve another year as vice president
if asked to do so.
The candidates are to be intro-
duced today, Wednesday (October
27), during the 7 PM SCC Com-
munity Association membership
meeting in Community Hall but are
not expected to speak about their
candidacies. They will participate
Wednesday, November 10, in a 7
PM meet-your-candidates session
in Community Hall.
Early voting in the annual CA
board election is slated for 7 AM

the Sandpiper Room on the Cen-
tral Campus. Balloting continues

to a bug that is rumored to have one
of the worst bites and has a nick-
name of "the Toe Biter." Scary stuff.
My fiance Ben found this bug while
working in the field and brought
it back to show me. Not knowing
what it was and thinking it had per-
ished, I put my hand in the bucket
and tapped its behind. It was off in a
flash swimming madly and showing
its huge pincers.
After some research, I determined
that this bug is a common critter
found in ponds and lakes, and to the
surprise of some swimmers, even in
chlorinated pools; it is called The
Water Bug. I read the descriptions
given by people that have been bit-
ten and I am glad that I was lucky
enough to come away unscathed.
The common theme in the descrip-
tions was the excruciating burning
and swelling that occurs in the ap-
pendage that is bitten/stung, and that
it lasts for days. Medical attention
is needed immediately after taking
a hit from this unassuming creepy
The full grown Water Bug is
slightly larger than a palmetto bug
and looks more robust and females
carry their eggs on their back until
they hatch. Another interesting thing
about this particular insect is that it
seems to have venom that dissolves
the innards of its prey, similar to that
of a spider. It gets its nickname of
Toe Biter because it most commonly
dwells on the bottoms of bodies of
water and a lot of the recorded bites
have been on toes, feet, ankles and

In the early 1980s hearing aids began to become more
selective. I had heard so many stories about HEARING
AIDS NOT BEING WORN, I decided to let people
borrow hearing aids before paying anything (no deposit
is required!) to ensure they were satisfied with their
hearing. Some gave their aids back for various reasons,
but NO ONE LOST MONEY. I accepted the entire
responsibility and still do today.
DID YOU KNOW?
We were the first to open a hearing aid office in
Sun City Center. That was in 1974, and we have
continuously served this area since then.

When Hannegan reached the
chamber, his brother senators de-

and Indiana stood on the question
of a war that could deplete both
a nation's treasury and her chief
treasure, her people. It had been
Hannegan, after all, who had cast
the decisive vote the year before
that brought Texas into the union.
Now, Hannegan told his col-
leagues "Gentlemen, Indiana and
I stand, with regret, for a declara-
tion of war. We have no choice but
to defend our interests." Hannegan
again tipped the scales. Congress
shortly resolved to go to war with
Mexico. Not yet the end of the
The ensuing two-year conflict
produced several factors, includ-
ing ceding by Mexico as well as
purchase by the United States
from Mexico of vast tracts of land
to the north. And, out of those mil-
lions of acres destined to become
eventually the western U.S. soon
would be carved, for example, the
State of California.
So, what's the significance of
a single vote? In this case, two
strong lawmakers and two of the
nation's largest, most influential
states. Henry, of course, didn't
know that his determination to
keep a simple promise would have
In fact, there may be others who
think about it much more intensely
than we do. Around the world to-
day, our young men and women in
uniform are posted to some very
dangerous places. They risk every
day coming home in body bags,
losing arms or legs or eyesight,
sustaining traumatic brain injuries
that will require around-the-clock
care for the remainder of their
Yet, they accept such risks with
the conviction they are protecting
our precious privileges, among
them the opportunity to vote free-
ly, without any fear of reprisal.
When we go to our polling
places, we know the most brutal
scene we will encounter is some
candidate's enthusiastic supporter
grinning at us and waving a sign; a
sign, not a high powered rifle, but
a piece of cardboard on a stick. We
will mark our ballots alone, in se-
cret, without anyone leaning over
our shoulders; no one will know
of our choices unless we choose
to disclose them. We will drop our
marked ballots into locked boxes,
confident our votes will be fairly
tallied, knowing our elections are
free of fraud. This is not the de-
scription of election day in many
parts of the world.
So, if our votes can have such
ultimate consequence and so many
are so willing to sacrifice so much
that we might have the privilege,
is it not simple logic that we do
our part. Our part is to prepare
ourselves to cast an informed,
thoughtful vote and then do it.

Letter to the Editor:
Take a close look at Rick Scott
If there is anyone still believing
anything Rick Scott says, either
remember or look up one of his di-
rect impacts on Florida citizens. In
May 1993 his Columbia Corpora-
tion closed most of the eight-year-
old Destin Hospital in the Florida
Panhandle in the name of efficien-
cy. The only part left open was the
emergency room, which, lacking
the support of an intensive-care
unit and ready surgeons, could not
treat many life-threatening condi-
tions. In less than six months, the
hospital was completely closed.
Rick Scott was a merger and ac-
quisitions lawyer using his training
to be a businessman. A business-
man is supposed to make money.
And make money he did, both
through 'efficiency' and fraud. His
customers were captive patients.
His attempts to use examples of
service to patients in his campaign-
ing have been refuted by a patient.
It appears the growth jobs he
created' were by gaining pa-
tients through bribes and fraud.
Certainly, jobs were lost through
his efficiencies. It took him only
three years after the merger with
Hospital Corporation of America
in 1994 for the major stockholding
Frist family and Board Chairman
Tommy Frist (brother of Senator
Bill Frist, Tennessee) to give him
a $300 million golden parachute
plus more to exit in 1997.
Scott's legacy continues at Co-
lumbia/HCA. Sun City Center,
FL residents are now fighting to
prevent the closure of South Bay
Hospital, except for the ER. Their
only hope to keep their community
hospital is State regulations.
Government is not in the busi-
ness of making money. Their pur-
pose is to serve and protect citi-
zens. While there are management
principles and methods of applying
efficiencies common to both gov-
ernment and commerce, business-
men have not had the best records
in public office. Those who have
adapted were previously in busi-
nesses which took service to cus-
tomers seriously and were active
volunteers in community service
I don't think Scott meets the
above criteria and appears to be
ignorant of what a Governor can
do (we do have legislators) and
what is done at the State versus
Federal level. Pray that blind party
loyalty or anger and frustration do
not make him our Governor.

Having more complete health insurance coverage is vital. Medicare alone may
not be enough. Medicare Parts A and B don't cover all of your medical expenses
or the cost of most prescription drugs. Together, an AARP' Medicare Supplement
Insurance Plan and an AARP' MedicareRx plan, both insured by UnitedHealthcare
Insurance Company, may help provide a solution.

Local Teens Compete in
Hillsborough County Battle of the Bands
The 13th Annual Teenage Battle of the Bands, sponsored by the Hillsborough County Parks, Recreation,
and Conservation Department, was held on Oct. 15 and 16 in conjunction with the Hillsborough County Fair
at 4810 East S.R. 60 in Dover, FL.
The competition was open to local bands, as long as band members were 13 to 20 years old. As was the case
last year, the top two bands received studio time to record some of their work thanks to the financial support
of Friends of Hillsborough Parks.
One of the bands competing this year was Deceptive Cadence. Band members Alex Crook (guitar), Jake
Simms (drums), Alex Gonzalez (bass), and Nick Forsthoffer (vocal) performed some of their own original
work as well as some of their favorites from Guns & Roses, Megadeath, and Van Halen, just to name a few.
Alex Crook, 16, who lives in Brandon and is a sophomore at Riverview High School, has been playing the
guitar over 5 years; Jake Simms, 16, who lives in Riverview and is a junior at Riverview High School, has
been playing the drums over 5 years; Alex Gonzalez, 16, who lives in Lithia and is a junior at Tampa Pre-

credible on drums. Gonzalez was
fantastic on bass. Forsthoffer was
great on vocals.
Despite their best effort and
awesome performance how-
ever, Deceptive Cadence was
not picked as one of the top two
bands. After wishing the winning
bands congratulations, Crook,

SafetyNet Search and Rescue Re-
Upon receiving the call, the
Hillsborough County Sheriff's
Office (HCSO) dispatcher imme-
diately accessed the SafetyNet da-
tabase, obtained the missing man's
unique radio frequency number, as
well as his photograph and physi-
cal description. This information
was given to the office's trained
officials for use in their ground
and aviation units.
Within only 30 minutes, ground
units equipped with LoJack Search
and Rescue Receivers picked up
a signal from the missing man's
bracelet, which was radioed to the
already in-flight HCSO helicopter.
The helicopter picked up a strong
signal and within minutes, spotted
the missing man walking along
the street several blocks from his
Valrico home. The air unit radioed
the man's location to ground units,
which rescued the man, who was
later returned home unharmed.
This is the second rescue made
by HCSO using SafetyNet's tech-
nology and equipment. The Safe-
tyNet service, which has been
available to residents in Hillsbor-
ough County since Sept. 2009,
provides peace of mind to caregiv-
ers of people at risk of wandering

nology available today for public

Stock up now, trout season ends Nov. I
Trout season comes to an end on
Monday, Nov. 1, so stock up now.
Great action on this fish, which
love the full moon. Trout are play-
ing in most all grassy flats around
the Tampa Bay area. Fish in 2-4'
of water, turn off your
motor and drift. If you
spook them, they swim
to deeper water. Trout
have a soft mouth, so
be careful to set the -
hook before trying to
boat your trout. Be sure Fish T

This is not a "Fish Tale." This
week it was reported that giant
redfish are storming into our bay
waters. Forty to fifty pounders
have been caught and released, but
be very careful. You cannot keep
one this size. You are legal with
one per person per day 18-27". If
you want some of this action, they
are hanging out around the ship-
ping channels, and playing hide
and seek with anglers at the Sky-
way. If they are diving deep, they
are hard to see, but be patient as
they do surface. In the brilliant
sunrays they cast a copper glow on
top of the water. Don't run through
the school but work the edges and
you will have a great time.
Warnings are out for anglers to
be sure and rig a pole with heavy
tackle, just in case they come upon
a school. Some anglers say they are
a sure catch with live sardines and
chumming, others use top water
spoons, and some are casting jigs.
Try it your way, but be sure and try
to catch one, as they may not swim
our way again.

their lives. In the upper
waters of both the Little Manatee
and the Alafia Rivers. The freshwa-
ter catfish are hungry and making
an easy catch for those dropping
a line. With a full moon, fishing
is great and large mouth bass are
popping up looking for food.
Some anglers eat saltwater cat-
fish but I always return them to
the water. Freshwater catfish has a
sweet taste of its own and is most
often served with hush puppies.
Hush puppies got their name from
the earlier settlers who cooked
their catfish in large black kettles,
over an open fire. They used flour,
onions, sometimes cornmeal, to
make a bread batter, which they
cooked in the hot grease to go
with their catfish. Each family
had dogs, and as the dogs howled,
they would throw them some of
the battered balls and say "hush-
puppies" to quiet them. Therefore
the batter with all of its added
and various ingredients has been
known through generations as
'hush-puppies.' They now can be
bought at the supermarket, but the
locals prefer to make their own.
It is election time, and I have
not heard of one fish fry for can-
didates. Years ago I attended a
political fish fry at Simmons Loop
with host Ellsworth Simmons.
Every State and County politician
was there. The air was filled with
the aroma of fried mullet, steak on
the grill as well as Country music
and politics. There were also vast
troughs of butter with corn on the
cob stacked in them. A sight I had
never seen before. This was truly

Mullet fish fries continue at most

Mullet is caught with a cast net.
There are those who can read the
water and tell when a school of
mullet is passing by and throw
a complete circle around them,
catching many at one cast. This
is why this fish is used to feed a
crowd. It isn't often that you find
an angler who can catch a mullet
with a line, hook and a pole. This

The Truth about Mirabay
I have been asked to state my position on many topics. The following statements, I trust
will answer some of the questions:
CDD Budget/Assessments: The CDD assessments are established after a series of open
forums/workshops, wherein each line item of the budget is discussed. The discussions
are open to all. I believe that all -.'lli...lll. should be done to gain the greatest amount
of benefit to the community for the lowest possible price, taking into account the com-
munity's input on each item.
Community Input: I believe that the Board of Supervisors J..l IJ.lii I..i ,il..I In.. i. 1111..
the interest of the community through direct conversations, mail requests, and discus-
sion at the open CDD ir.... .I.. I have received many e-mails and phone calls through
the past year and have brought items so received, in the form of motions to i.......I. ...
I believe the iI......,.. should be held at a time convenient to all residents. This is why I
moved that all CDD ii....i. be held in the evening after 5:30 PM rather than morning
Seawall Litigation/Legal Representation: The hiring of l..l i.. ..'...m ii' for the
CDD is done by the board, after receiving resumes from ... ...ii.. i,,. .. .. The board
then selects the attorney firm and e .1 i..... byway of contract. This has occurred in
the past in both hiring of the CDD board attorney and the hiring of the s. vn ill lii,. II ,,,
firm. The selections are done by vote of the board in open ...... The seawall lawsuit
is a complex business lili. ,iii It was :I.i,. ii..'. in 2007/2008 and will, if not settled
before, be tried in September 2011. Needless to say, when there are tens of millions of
dollars at risk the tactics used by both sides must be kept confidential and therefore
under attorney-client 1p" ii..... The client, being the CDD board and the attorneys, the
"Firm of Record". Periodic updates of the proceedings are posted on the Mirabay web
site, but must not reveal the tactics used by our 1ii1. 1i.. firm. I believe, as a matter of
audit, that CDD board attorney should be a member of legal firm separate from the legal
firm handling our s'. n iii. i!i,.. i
Confidentiality I believe that confidentiality of records in trusted to representatives
of Mirabay for safety purposes, gate records, pool records, credit card records, and
any record of a sensitive nature, must be held in an .. i1111 ii, that is not subject to a
freedom of information inquiry.
Mirabay is enjoying a very competitive and sometimes controversial election of three
members of the Board of Supervisors. Why is this important, and why would it be con-
troversial? The board is made up of five members. Due to the confluence of unusual
happenings, the community will elect three new members to the board, a potentially
controlling cabal. In the past, independent residents, or people who were employees of
Newland have made up the board. For the first time this year, three people are running as
a team. One of the members of the team, Paul Stumpf, is running unopposed. The other
two, Bill Kirchhofer and Rick Terrell, have been involved in a series of controversial and
unorthodox campaign tactics to acquire otherwise difficult to obtain e-mail addresses
and phone numbers. The ethics of these tactics have been brought to question in a series
of posts to the Mirabay blog. It would appear that the potential of a controlling group of
three, for the next four years, is frightening to many residents.
I remain available at all times for requests from the community I will endeavor to answer
any question and bring before the board any topic of concern to residents

Dangers of Not Investigating and Treating Your Leg Veins: Failure of vein valves causes problems that are
more than just uncomfortable or unsightly. They can lead to problems that are dangerous, even life-threatening. These
can now be very effectively averted by modern vein treatment a simple ultrasound investigation and a simple, painless
office treatment! Delay will only allow your legs to worsen. Once valves have failed, the condition of the legs gradually
and progressively deteriorates.
Clots: Varicose veins are prone to inflammation with clots, i.e. phlebitis. The risk of deep vein clots is increased 400%
with superficial phlebitis. These are the type of blood clots that can kill you!
Cellulitus: Stasis Dermatitis is more than unsightly and uncomfortable. It is dangerous. The sickened skin can become
infected and lead to life threatening sepsis.
Medication Side Effects: Swollen ankles, night cramps/Charley horses, "secondary" restless leg symptoms, venous
stasis eczema and venous ulcers, are all often treated with temporizing, palliative medications. A lady with swollen
ankles from failed vein valves (and not from congestive failure or renal failure), does not have to increase her risk of
stroke and problems of potassium and other electrolyte loss by taking diuretics (eg. Lasix). She often only needs to have
a simple treatment to fix her veins. Similarly, risking, cramp meds, quinine, Requip, sleep medications, prolonged topical
steroids, and prolonged wound care medications and others for the conditions above is, with modern vein treatments,
often unnecessary and foolish.
The Domino Effect: People whose legs hurt or feel extraordinarily "tired" are not as active. This inactivity leads to
increased weight and decreased cardiovascular health. People with nocturnal cramping (night cramps, Charley horses
and a variety of "secondary" restless symptoms) are often sleep deprived. People with unsightly legs often have a dimin-
ished quality of life...they no longer go to the beach and they stay inside more because walking about all covered up in
Florida heat is difficult.
Deterioration: Vein problems usually begin very gradually. Your mother or father's terrible legs began with just a few
thin spider veins perhaps and a little aching. Early detection of failed valves by ultrasound is very simple and treatment
is painless. These are key to preventing escalating future problems. Act now. This is a continually deteriorating condition
until treated...What ARE you waiting for?!

It's All About Me
Ego is a
ing, and hungry little creature. *
When healthy, its demeanor is unobtru-
sive, easily satisfied and plays well with others.
When hungry and frail, it can be abrasive, obnoxious, and not
easily tolerated. Acquiring a balance of ego strengths and weaknesses is
a difficult task. Some of us spend a lifetime feeding the little entity that
wants things; more, better, and best, to prove our self worth. Some egos
use verbiage to impress others with their intellectual superiority. Either
way, our ego strengths and weaknesses direct our actions. The ego is
continually searching, for attention getting identity. Any of the follow-
ing ego enhancers sound good?
Having a car so expensive a valet can't park it
Filling a home with things no one can touch
Wearing bikinis and speedos at age 80
Having an exotic animal as a pet
Wearing sable in the summer
Owning a dog whose pedigree you can't pronounce
Having jewelry too expensive to wear or...wearing it all at the same
Donning a toupee that doesn't fit
Yapping loudly on a cell phone about things no one else cares to hear
And the old stand by name dropping!
We often do our ego's bidding by adopting the philosophy; the more
I have the more I am. There is a thin line separating a healthy ego that
translates into performance and self-satisfaction, and a suffering
ego that needs the underpinnings of things, and the bra-
vado to satisfy it. Balance is imperative but often
impossible to attain without the deep in-
trospection of a Maharashi.
And now, back to me...
Where was I?

Fall paper drive
The Mary and Martha House in Ruskin is launching its Fall 2010 'Paper
Drive.' With times as they are their facilities are at full capacity. Think of
how much toilet paper and paper towels women can go through. It is esti-
mated that one woman will use approximately 420 sq. feet of paper products
per week. Multiply this by 24 guests (women and children) times 30 days
times 6 months. So the goal is to collect 1,814,400 sq. feet of paper products
by Dec. 1.
The community can participate by dropping off paper supplies at the ad-
ministrative office at 1009 1st St. SWin Ruskin. The Mary & Martha House
Inc. is a shelter for women and children in crisis, and supports two emer-
gency shelters as well as transitional housing in Ruskin.
The Mary & Martha House Board and Staff would like to thank the com-
munity for their continuing support; both through donations and by shopping
at their two retail stores. The Thrift Store is located at 1009 1st St. SW and
The Rose Boutique is located at 100 East Shell Point Road. For more
information or store hours, call (813) 645-7874.
Last week's withdrawal of the
diet drug Meridia marks the latest
setback in a long and frustrating
quest for a pharmaceutical solution
to our national obesity epidemic.
Despite millions of dollars spent
by drug companies, none of the
handful of diet drugs on the market
is considered very effective.
This is most unfortunate, for
obesity has become the number
one public health problem for our
community and our nation, affect-
ing one-third of our population.
It's a precursor to heart disease,
stroke, cancer, diabetes, and other
chronic illnesses that account for
more than a million premature
deaths each year.
Leading causes of obesity are
consumption of fat-laden meat
and dairy products and inadequate
exercise. This is particularly criti-
cal during childhood years, when
lifestyle habits become lifelong
addictions. The failure of the drug
industry to come up with a dietary
silver bullet places added empha-
sis on the diet/exercise solution.
The time has come to replace
meat and dairy products in our diet
with wholesome grains, vegeta-
bles, and fruits and to undertake a
regular exercise program. Parents
should insist that their schools
introduce wholesome school lunch
choices and should set a good
example at their own dinner table.

college for many years following
its establishment in 1976.
An outreach program that serves
the entire community, not just Sun
City Center residents, over the
years it has created unique courses
including everything from Memoir
Writing to Household Repairs. It's
truly been a blessing and a place to
educate yourself on just about any
subject you can name.
Lively discussion groups are also
part of the curriculum; with topics
ranging from current events; how
we relate to other countries and
cultures, by people who have lived
overseas; and comparison of the
different ways world health care
The reason so many topics can
be covered accurately and interest-
ingly is that many retired experts
live in South County. You don't
have to live in Sun City Center
even though the college is located
at the United Community Church,
1501 La Jolla Ave, off N. Pebble
Beach Boulevard, which runs off
State Road 674 right through town.
I know you don't have to be a Sun
City Center resident, because I
live in Riverview and I've taught a
creative writing class there myself.
Over the years, I've also partici-
pated in other people's classes and
always learned something while
having a good time. It's good old-
fashioned educational fun for both
the instructors and the class mem-
bers and if you haven't tried it,
you should check out the fall and
spring class schedules now, espe-
cially since it's only three weeks
into the fall semester and you don't
have to go to the class every week
if you don't want to.

Florida stone crab
Fresh Florida stone crab claws are
back in seafood markets and res-
taurants across the Sunshine State.
Stone crab season runs through
mid-May. The fishery is closed for
five months each year to help pro-
tect and sustain this valuable re-
and Menippa ,
and their hy- -;;
bays and estuaries
along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts.
The stone crab's ability to regen-
erate lost limbs makes it possible
to harvest the meaty claws without
killing the crab. Florida law forbids
the harvesting of whole stone crabs.
Instead, fishermen remove one or
both claws and return the live crab
to the water, where it can regenerate
its lost limbs in about 18 months.
Claws must be at least 2-3/4 inches
long and may not be taken from
egg-bearing females. They must be
removed carefully, at just the right
spot, in order for regeneration to
take place. For recipes and informa-
tion visit www.fl-seafood.com/
one could ever replace her," Sally
said to me as we sat in her office
But Sally hasn't just kept the old
favorite courses. She's hunted for
new talent and she's found it.
Of course the old favorites are
still around; especially the ones
that are full every time. But new
classes have been added that are
worth mentioning, like "Basic
Dog Training" and "Fung Shui."
There's a variety, stretching from
acting to gardening and even a
class called, "What is Most Impor-
tant to You?"
One of the things Sally has put
in place is the Community Church
College Speaker's Bureau, made
up of all present and former in-
structors who want to spread their
knowledge to clubs, religious and
civic organizations, and other
groups around South County.
Sally was a natural to start a
Speaker's Bureau because she did
many similar things before mov-
ing to Florida.
She and her late husband Ed
moved to Sun City Center six years
ago from Beaver Falls., Penn.
Sally started her career in Penn-
sylvania as a music teacher, soon
became music director, and also
taught communications. She's
taught both junior and senior
English in high school and public
After that, she became affili-
ated with, and later director of
alumni relations for, Geneva
Christian College in Beaver Falls,
a job which entailed her traveling
around the country to 20 alumni
clubs telling them what's happen-
ing now at the college and gaining
She's also owned her own busi-
ness, called "Agenda," which took
on fundraising for causes and
The mother of one son and two
grandsons who live in Atlanta,
Sally said she is excited about be-
ginning her second year as Dean.
'One new course that's really
taken off is Interior Design taught
by June Jackley," she said. Anoth-
er is "How to Improve Your Mem-
ory" by Alicia Thomas. 'That one
is really full," she said.
Another brand new addition is
'The World of Cats," given by
Judy Stinson. "Any cat lover can
appreciate this one," she told me.
Returning in the spring will be a
class that was very popular when
given for the first time last semes-
ter by Fred Hearns, she said. "But
Fred took off to get a Master's."
Supposedly he will resume his
'Tours" in the spring. 'Last semes-
ter they went on a guided tour of
Tampa and people really loved it,"
she said. "So many people want to
go nice places but they either don't
drive at night or don't want to go
someplace new alone. This is won-
derful for them."
Meeting with Sally was interest-
ing and I'm glad to see she's had
such an eventful first year. Maybe
she'll stay as long as Yvonne Pon-
sor and become another well-
known figure around town.

Two-way video and audio are
used, a lot of which is utilized in
child abuse examinations, he add-
"I was sure the biggest nerd of

Drew has lived in the Bay area
for more than 20 years now, hav-
ing also lived in Tallahassee, Jack-
sonville and Sarasota, and has had
ties to South County for the last
seven of those years.
An active member of the Apollo
Beach Sailing Squadron, he also
acts as a Fleet Captain and occa-
sionally teaches sailing classes.
He belongs to one community of
balloonists with a couple of doz-
en pilots in Orlando and another
group based in Tampa that has 10-
12 active members.
'There are some commercial
guys who fly daily but most of us
do it as a very expensive hobby,"
Sometimes, he flies people for
benefits and charities.
All balloonists must be FAA
(Federal Aviation Administration)
certified and carry at least $1 mil-
lion insurance, he said.
"It costs us an average of about
$250 to put a balloon in the air," he
explained. "Fuel isn't cheap."
That's why most commercial
people need several passengers

uses hydrogen instead of heated
oxygen, to fly," he said. "And hy-

it is extremely volatile in compari-
To fill the balloons, they are
laid on their side and a propane
gas burner heats the air going in-
side. There is equipment to let him
know how much air is needed, and
what temperature it should be, as
the balance between the outside
and air inside the balloon is what
keeps (hot air balloons, not hydro-
gen) in flight, he said.
The air-filled portion of the bal-
loon is called "the envelope" by
balloonists because the man who
invented this type of travel was a
printer, and he thought the actual
balloon part resembled an enve-
lope because it held something
inside, Drew said. "He started by
flying ducks, chickens and goats
in the baskets below the envelope
before humans ever got a ride."
The tradition of carrying a bottle
of champagne, or other wine, goes
back to the time some rural tribes
thought the balloonists who landed
near them were devils and went
after them with pitchforks, Drew
said. He has learned from his stud-
ies that old-time balloonists would
plan about where they were going
to land and find out what the tra-
ditional beverage was there, and
took some of it with them to give
the locals so they would know they
came in friendship.

THE LATEST PROCEDURE FOR
HEART RHYTHM DISORDERS
Precision. Faster recovery.
And you don't miss a beat (anymore)!
If you have a heart rhythm disorder, there's a good chance it's caused by

Making This Right
Health and Safety
I was bor in New Orleans. My family still lives here. We have to restore the Gulf communities
for the shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners who live and work here.
Iris Cross, BP Community Outreach
No oil has flowed into the Gulf for weeks. But we know this is just the beginning of our
work. BP has taken full responsibility for the cleanup in the Gulf and that includes
keeping you informed.
Restoring Gulf Communities
We can't undo this tragedy. But we can help people get back on their feet. We have
been working with impacted communities since day one.
Partnering with local governments and community organizations, my job is to listen to
people's needs and frustrations and find ways to help. We have 19 community centers
and teams in four states, listening and helping.
Restoring The Economy
BP is here in Gulf communities with shrimpers, fishermen, hotel and restaurant owners,
helping to make them whole.
More than 120,000 claim payments totaling over $375 million have already gone to people
affected by the spill. We have committed a $20 billion independent fund to pay all legitimate
claims, including lost incomes until people impacted can go back to work. And none of this
will be paid by taxpayers.
BP has also given grants of $87 million to the states to help tourism recover and bring
people back to the Gulf beaches.
Restoring The Environment
We're going to keep looking for oil and cleaning it up if we find it. Teams will remain in
place for as long as it takes to restore the Gulf Coast.
And we've dedicated $500 million to work with local and national scientific experts on the
impact of the spill and to restore environmental damage.
Thousands of BP employees have their roots in the Gulf. We support over 10,000 jobs in
the region and people here are our neighbors. We know we haven't always been perfect,
but we will be here until the oil is gone and the people and businesses are back to normal.
We will do everything we can to make this right.

Helen C. Luther
September 27,1922 October 9, 2010
Surrounded by the loving family
she created, in the Harwich Port,
Massachusetts home where she
summered since 1956, Helen Christine
(Ladd) Luther passed into the hands
of her Lord. Daughter of the late Lloyd
A. and Helen (nee Elin) S. (Anderson)
Ladd, Helen was born in Pawtucket,
Rhode Island at her family's home
on Whipple Street, with her maternal
Grandmother, Christine, attending
as midwife. At the age of eight Helen
met ten year old Warren Luther, and
thus began 80 years of friendship,
companionship, love and commitment.
They never even thought of dating
anyone else. Married in 1943, Helen
and Warren enjoyed over 66 years as
husband and wife. They made their
home in Pawtucket until retiring in 1989
to Sun City Center, Florida, but always
returned to spend summers in their
Cape Cod house "Just Big Enough".
Helen loved to sing, and beginning
with the Pawtucket High School Glee
Club, sang in choirs and choruses
throughout her life, lastly, from 1990 to
2007, with the Kings Point Chorus of
Sun City Center.
Helen had a lifetime commitment to
God and service and was an active
member of Trinity Lutheran Church
(later St. Matthew-Trinity) in Pawtucket,
St Peter's Lutheran in Harwich, and
Redeemer Lutheran in Sun City
Center. She served as president of
Trinity Lutheran Church Women the
first woman Deacon of Trinity's Church
Board, president of both the Blackstone
Valley Unit and, later (1975-78), the
R.I. unit of Church of Church Women
United, and (1984-89)as a member of
the Board of Directors of Blackstone
Valley Emergency Shelter for Abused
Children. In 1985 she received the
"Valiant Woman Award" from the
National Board of Church Women
United. After retiring to Florida in 1989,
she was active in WELCA (Women
of the Evangelical Lutheran Church
of America), and served as its local
president from 1998 to 2001.
Helen was proud of her role as
homemaker and strove, through
love, to provide comfort and peace to
those around her. She will be missed
by all who knew her, especially
by her husband, Charles Warren
Luther, Jr.; son, Charles Alan Luther;
daughter, Susan L. Luther; brother,
Lloyd Ladd and his wife Barbara; and
granddaughters Elin T Hersch and
Marik E. A Hirsch. Contributions in
her memory may be made to; VNA

he took to riding a bright yellow
