Lancaster III parade celebrates Luck of the Irish

The residents of Lancaster III got their green on to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a cart parade and block party.

Lauren, a resident of Lancaster III, said she and her friends love their neighborhood. “It’s a quiet friendly neighborhood surrounded by oak trees, which we think makes it a great place to walk and visit in the shade.” The residents of this friendly

little slice of Kings Point sure are a fun bunch. The neighborhood includes homes on five streets— Lancaster, Langtree, Laughton, Locksley & Lonigan—and these folks love to celebrate together. The idea for the St. Patrick’s Day Continued on Page 2

Dave Boyer and Walter Berry said they were hair to have great time!

Kings Point Art League Art Show Winners Announced Submitted by Kings Point Art League On February 27th and 28th, the Kings Point Art League held their annual Art Show. The theme this year was “Over the Rainbow.” Nearly 200 paintings were submitted for judging by well-known artist and author, Anne Abgott.  The winners were as follows: “April” by Arlene Egret won Best of Show. “Central Park Winter” by Dianne Sullivan won First Place Overall. This was a Special Award by the Judge. “Through the Looking Glass” by Diane G. Simon won the People’s Choice Award. But those were not the only art and artists recognized in this exceptional gallery of work. First Place ribbons were awarded to Rita Pitre, Mary Russo, Yoshihiro Koseki, Bernadette Mueller, June Healey, Barbara Wolons, Michael Manghise, Bonnie Murphy, Steven Cooper, Mary Chabot, Bruce Fallender, Joseph LoBaido, Jean Paul, and Ted Daubresse. These artists displayed outstanding work across a wide spectrum of styles and media.

Krowl, Virginia Greenstone, Elly Sullivan, Mary Russo, Ruth Shambaugh, Bernadette Mueller, Jackaleen Rhinevault, and Art Grundberg.  The excellent work offered by those who won these honors sure made judging difficult. In fact, there were many standout pieces among the work that did not place in the top three. Each category was filled with numerous honorable mentions. Artists mingled and admired each other’s work at a wine and cheese reception following the show on Wednesday, February 27. Warm congratulations to all of our winners! Continued on Page 5

cart parade and party came from organizers, Judy Boyer and Chris Leavitt. The ladies distributed flyers door-to-door in the neighborhood, inviting everyone to the St. Paddy’s soiree. Residents cruised in their golf carts and then headed to the corner of Locksley and Lonigan for a potluck block party. Everyone came bearing lawn chairs, snacks, desserts and drinks. Folks visited for a while, sipped libations and shared snacks. Soon enough, the clouds came and started to rain

on their parade. Happy to have had the chance, albeit briefly, to reconnect with friends and neighbors, the residents of Lancaster hurried inside to escape the “Irish weather” that dampened the Irish holiday. EDITOR’S NOTE: Do you and your neighbors have a party planned? Send the story and digital pictures in to the News of Kings Point. We would love to share your fun in these pages. See the submissions information below.

The Editor’s Corner

Bonnie & Tom Murphy.

Chris Leavitt (pictured) and Judy Boyer were the festivity organizers.

Who are the people in your neighborhood? By E. Adam Porter, Editor, News of Kings Point One of the awesome fringe benefits of serving as the Editor in Chief of this community newspaper is the opportunity to meet so many interesting people in this community. Each month as I am reviewing submissions from folks all across Kings Point and Greater Sun City Center, I am introduced to some amazing people doing a lot of fun, exciting, creative and educational stuff. As I go through the emails, submissions and letters, I often think of a song from my childhood. Mr. Rogers singing, “Who Are the People in the Neighborhood?” In that spirit, here are a few people from 33573 you might be glad to know are your neighbors. Betty Beach-Connell is a retired pastor and member of the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. Betty is working on a book that, when finished, will encourage countless women through some dark times in life. Frank Kepley is a retired US Navy Captain who handles PR for several local veterans groups. Each month Frank shares the latest news and events open to local veterans. His efforts allow veterans to meet, interact, share stories and talk with those who, they know, will “understand.” Emma Gadd faithfully covers the Falcon Watch ladies golf news for your community each and every month. So, if you play ladies 9-hole golf at Falcon Watch, and you see your name in the paper, thank Emma. She’s the one who sent it in so you could “read all about it.” Chris O’Hara is an enthusiastic member of the local Women’s Chorus. Each month Chris fills us in on all the great goings on regarding the chorus. Whether sending out an invitation for women to join the chorus or announcing the next concert,

April, 2013

Chris keeps us up to date. KPAL, the Kings Point Art League is a collection of amazing artists at all experience levels. Maybe you know a few of the recent award winners – Diane Sullivan, Arlene Egret, Diane Simon, Ted Daubresse and Bruce Fallender. Deputy Jason Castillo is the new community resource deputy. After spending several years patrolling other areas of Hillsborough County, Deputy Castillo’s full time job is now assisting residents of 33573. But did you know Jason is a “local boy” who grew up in Ruskin and still lives in Wimauma? Carla Miles is a volunteer with Hope Fund, a local charity that is dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children who live in Wimauma or attend the after-school and summer programs at Bethune Park. Jerry Healy is a shuffleboard enthusiast who recently set up a “Day at the Courts” event to celebrate a century of shuffleboard in the Sunshine State. Did you know Floridians have been shuffling for 100 years? I sure didn’t…until I heard from Jerry. Dance instructor Darlene Meadows is dedicated to helping seniors improve their physical and emotional health through exercise that is actually fun. One of Darlene’s most recent success stories is Ella Priori, a lovely 90-yearold lady who attended her first dance class back in November. Priori first came to class with a walker and, after a few months, can now stay in step with others in the class. Of course, these are just a few stories of the interesting people in our community. I bet you know some more…and I bet you even are one. So tell us who you are and what you do to make Kings Point and Sun City Center the great place it is to have a neighbor you can call a friend.

Ginny and her brother Bill Piper rocked their hat and glasses.

Emergency Squad Alert

Jan Huber, Asst. Chief, PR The Sun City Center Emergency Squad was started in 1964 by fourteen first aiders trained by the Red Cross. Today “The Squad” is more than 400 volunteers including licensed EMTs, medical responders, drivers and dispatchers as well as a support staff of administrative and mechanical workers. The Squad will respond to your call for emergency medical assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

WE ARE “THE SQUAD” There is a general misconception in town that confuses the Emergency Squad and the Security Patrol. Who are we? We are the Sun City Center Emergency Squad. We are the largest all-volunteer Basic Life Support unit in the State of Florida. We have served our community for almost 50 years with emergency medical services at no charge. Last year we responded to 6,800 emergency calls in the greater Sun City Center area. Our wheelchair vans transported almost 3,000 patients to various medical appointments. Our volunteers are highly trained. Our EMT’S attend

Hillsborough Community College and are nationally certified. Our Drivers and Responders are trained in-house by our certified instructors. We are on the go constantly and the services we provide to the community are far different from the type of services provided by the Security Patrol. We are totally dependent on community donations and our community has supported us each and every year. We are affectionately known throughout greater Sun City Center as “THE SQUAD.” The other organization which patrols the streets, but only in Sun City Center, is “The Patrol.” We hope this will help you to distinguish between the two organizations.

Thirteen students have successfully completed the intense 52-hour “Emergency Medical Responder” course given at the SCC Emergency Squad training center. Students are first trained and certified in CPR. Following this aspect of the course, the students studied medical and environmental emergencies, airway management, the human body, bleeding, shock, and poisoning.  Students also learned proper technique for splinting, Continued on Page 15

Successful Fund Raiser

“The Squad” held their annual 50’s dance on March 3rd at the Borini Theatre in Kings Point. It was a sold-out success and was attended by over 300 people who enjoyed four solid hours of music and dancing to 50’s tunes played by   “Del and Gary.”   It was a great opportunity for the community to mingle with “The Squad” in a fun filled environment. The attire for the evening was jeans, tee shirts and poodle skirts. Close to $3,000 was raised.   Many thanks go out to our community for their support.

“April” by Arlene Egret won Best of Show.

Lynn has lived in Harrison, New York as a snowbird from 1996 until 2005, and became a full time resident in Kings Point in 2005. Before retirement, she was in Retail Management and fashion coordinator with some display work as well.  She first started to paint as a child, but began a 4-year art major in high school. Lynn’s mediums are watercolors, watercolor pencil, colored pencils, and ink.  Her favorite art subjects are abstracts, oriental, and Kad-doodles. Lynn teaches Basic Drawing, Illustration, and Portraits in Pencil in the Art Room at Kings Point.  Her goal is to continue to write and illustrate children’s books for her grandkids, and teaching. Lynn’s hobbies are dancing, writing, travel, and teaching others the Joy of Drawing. Her present duties for the Art League include  the demo coordinator for 8 years, and she also served as Vice President twice. Lynn’s artwork will be on display for the month of April in the Kings Point North Clubhouse.  Please stop by and admire Lynn’s creative paintings.

I asked my GP to do a PSA and he said since the government doesn’t recommend it anymore, he won’t do it. But I’m still worried. A— You have every right to be

worried. Since the USPSTF (U.S. Preventative Services Task Force) recommended stopping PSA and DRE screening 12 months ago, the death rate from Prostate Cancer has increased by 17%.

If your GP won’t order the test for you, try the area health department or change doctors! You may even have to pay for the test yourself, but the peace of mind may be worth it. There are organizations that offer FREE screenings, too—so watch the papers. Especially in September which is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month.

The room was COLD but that’s necessary for the flowers to stay fresh for several days. Some items were made separate then added at the last minute. For the Panama cruise part of the trip, we had a man from Panama give lectures during atsea days before we got to the canal.

Inspiring Healthy Living Success Stories Submitted by Rosie Korfant, JSA Medical Group Only a short time into the New Year, with many people’s resolutions on the back burner, two 90-year old success stories have come to the forefront in the quest for healthier lifestyles. Sun City Center resident, Ella Priori, 90, walked into her first line dancing class in November sponsored by JSA Medical Group. Ella virtually “walked” in on a walker due to a three-time surgery on her right femur. She has an implant with a cadaver attached to her femur, which is wired together in several places. This allows her the mobility to attend line dancing classes, which help keep her healthier lifestyle options open. Not long after beginning her original class on a walker, Ella graduated to a cane and now keeps step and time along with her other class students. Veteran line dance teacher, Darlene Meadows, of King’s Point, has seen a transformation in Ella that she hopes inspires others to join the class and that, simply by faith, they, too, will find improvement in their balance, agility and stamina as it has done for Ella. Formerly of Exton, PA, Ella was not known as a “social butterfly,” and normally spent happy days as a homebody UNTIL

she realized her penchant for line dancing. She found it was such fun and a healthy exercise that she not only joined the local line dancing group, but became the choreographer for a dance troupe called the “The Westchester Song and Dance Troupe.” These “over 55 gals” entertained for various organizations from 1992 until 1998; getting paid $100 per show with SIX costume changes each! Upon arriving in Sun City Center only a few months ago, she noticed the ads for line dancing, “walked” in, and has become an inspiration to her current class at JSA Medical Group. Likewise, 90-year old J.D. (Joseph Durward) Stanlake, who originally hails from Kalamazoo, MI, and now of Sun City Center, boasts of his newly found yoga classes that it has helped to decrease his blood pressure by almost 20 points! J.D. who is a 25-year Navy Air veteran flew in many of the major campaigns in WWII, including Okinawa and Japan, and served on the ESSEX, arriving two days before General MacArthur. He became a flight instructor at Glenview Naval Air station where he often met the famous actor, Robert Taylor, who was there filming movies. J.D. said the “motivating factor” to move to Sun City Center was his daughter, Candace, who

then introduced him to yoga instructor, Lynne Sells. She has subsequently taught J.D. the rudiments of a regimen that has helped to control a blood pressure problem that began only a year ago with atrial fibulation. Along with yoga, J.D. attributes his healthy blood pressure to almost daily swims in the Sun City Center Community Association pool, where

he is a member, and diligent medication habits. His blood pressure is now consistently held at 140/80! Weekly activity classes are offered to the community by JSA Medical Group FREE of charge that includes: line dancing, yoga, tai chi, salsa, and Silver Sneakers.

The LEO Letter – What HCSO needs you to know

With Deputy Jason Castillo This scam will really bug you Recently, we have received calls from local pest control companies that an individual is coming out to residents’ homes and posing as a pest control worker. This individual does not work for any local company, but several residents in Sun City Center and Kings Point have reported his scam attempts. Some of these attempts have been successful. Here’s the way this scam works:

The bad guy comes to the door and announces that he is with the pest control company here for the regular termite inspection. When the homeowner says, “Oh, you’re with (their pest control company),” the scammer says, “Yes I am.” The individual then walks the perimeter of the house as if he is inspecting. He has also been successful in gaining entrance into homes and pretending to do an inspection inside. After the “inspection” the scammer informs the resident that he will be back “tomorrow” to spray. He then requests payment. Once he gets paid he never returns to do any work. Legitimate pest control companies are very concerned that their valued customers are

falling victim to this scammer. They want to assure you that he is in no way affiliated with any of them. David Francis, owner of Golden Rule Termite & Pest Control, specifically requested that his customers call if they do not recognize the individual claiming to be one of his employees and that individual does not offer any identification. Residents should always request to see identification as well as a company business card before giving money to anyone who says they are at your home to perform scheduled service. One resident did exactly that, and the scammer immediately left. If this happens to you, please call the Hillsborough County Sheriffs Office non-emergency line at 813.247.8000. Tell us

what happened, and give us a description of the vehicle and the individual. Operation Drug Drop is coming April 4 Bring your unused or expired medication to the HCSO Operation Drug Drop on April 4. The drop off location is the SCC South Community Hall, 1910 S. Pebble Beach Blvd. Drop off times are 9 AM to 12 noon. HCSO requests that you never just throw away your unused or expired prescription medications. Bring them to one of our regular drug drops and HCSO can dispose of them properly. For dates and times of additional upcoming drug drops, call the SCC substation at 813.672.7817. Thanks, and be safe out there.

Cents Just Don’t Make Sense Image Courtesy Wiki Commons.

By Bob Preston, Community Contributor Pennies, do they make sense anymore? They have been around in our country for nearly 220 years. The first US one cent piece was coined in the year1793 and was made of 100% copper. Since that date the size, material, and design of the coin has undergone several changes. Unless you are a numismatist (coin collector), you most likely know of the Lincoln cent and perhaps the Indian cent. In 1793, the United States of America was trying to establish itself among the nations of the world. President Washington was made aware of what an urgent matter it was for the US to have a stable system of coinage. The chain cent of 1793, designed by Benjamin Franklin was probably the first coin minted. Between 1793 and 1859 the design of the one-cent piece changed eight times. The next most durable design

of the US Penny was the Indian cent. The Indian cent was 100% copper from 1859 to about 1864 after which is was cast with 5% zinc. The Indian Head penny lasted for 50 years. The first Lincoln cent, like what we have today, appeared in 1909 making it the longest lasting version of a US Penny so far. If you have a 1909 penny hold on to it, there is one version worth over $2,000! In 1943 pennies were steel covered in zinc to allow the use of copper for military purposes. If you happen to have a 1943 copper penny or a1944 steel penny, either one is worth $100,000. There have been adoptions of new reverse sides of the Lincoln cent at the 100th and 150th birthdays of Abraham Lincoln but the face has remained the same. More pennies have been pressed than any other coin in the US. It is estimated that there are 200,350,672,000 pennies in circulation today. Back when

See Spot.

most of us seniors were kids, 2 cents was a lot of money. That was when 13 cents would get you into a Saturday matinee double feature, with a Flash Gordon serial episode, a cartoon, the RKO newsreel and box of JuJu beads – but those days are over. The price of a movie is now about $6.50 or more, and that is the senior rate. And all you get is the ticket in. You can easily spend almost 10 bucks on popcorn and a soft drink. Today’s pennies cost 2.42 cents to make. The scent of that fact begs the question, “What sense does it make to manufacture cents that are worth less than they cost to make?” Any one in business would have stopped such fabrication merchandise long before the break-even point of production was at hand. Now-a-days nearly all retail stores have a cup full of pennies for use by anyone who needs one. Here is a novel idea; let’s get rid of all of the pennies! Let’s have all retailers round off our final costs at all stores and businesses to the nearest nickel. Just think, if we did away with all of the pennies, stores would not have to keep pennies on hand to make change, banks would not need them to cash

See Spot Change.

checks, armored cars could save time and space by not carrying pennies around and most of all, we could empty our bureau drawers, purses, and change jars of these seemingly worthless coins. It wouldn’t be too much of an insult to old Abe; he will still be on the $5 bill. Canada plans to stop producing pennies in the fall of 2013. It all makes sense to me! A penny for your thoughts (no confirmed origin), or what are your 2 cents worth (taken from the original English idiom expression: to put in “my two pennies worth” or “my tuppence worth.”)

April Movie Night

The United Methodist Church, 1210 Del Webb Blvd.; Sun City Center will be showing “THE NOTE” April 12, 2013. If you believe in miracles, “The Note” is a movie to see. It starts with a plane crash and a newspaper columnist, Payton MacGrudere, played by Genie Frances (General Hospital), who finds a note that appears have come from one of the passengers on the plane. During the last few minutes of his life, and realizing his time was limited, one of the passengers took those last few moments to write a note to a loved one. After finding the note, Payton goes on a quest to find the person to whom the note was written.  When all hope is gone and Payton is considering all is lost, King’s, played by Ted McGinley (TV’s Hope and Faith) encouragement keeps her believing in herself and what she is doing. It seems as if the lives of all the people that she encountered, while searching for the one the note was meant for, were blessed in some way. On her search to heal a stranger’s heart, she discovers her heart has been changed also. The note, seems to have a mysterious and wonderful power all by itself. The movie starts at 6:30. There will be popcorn, cookies and beverages from 6:00 until the beginning of the movie. This will be a good time to see friends and neighbors that you haven’t seen in the past month. I’m sure you won’t be sorry that you came.  Donations, for the refreshments, will be appreciated.

What the eye used to see

By Suzanne S. Austin-Hill A thin line of miniature trees marks the end of the wide open space with a subtle finality; home to invisible choirs of feathered creatures loudly announcing their plans for the day in coded disharmony.

Unencumbered, dawn’s glorious colors introduce themselves one-by-one to the sweet nothingness before me. Now only the sounds remain as the Monster with the cement heart and body of cinder block and pressed wood stretches upward. The space, The colors, and The nothingness ...gone.

Contract Bridge Super Crossword

By Steve Becker IMAGINATION

WILLIAM VII

If you play against opponents who never make a mistake, this article is not for you. But if, as is more likely, your opponents are human and err occasionally, these words will not be in vain. Assume you’re South and West leads the seven of hearts against your four-spade contract. Right away you get a sinking feeling about what’s going to happen.

Solutions on Page 31

After you take East’s queen with the ace and lead a trump, you know East will win the trick, cash the king of hearts and return a heart for West to ruff. In the fullness of time you will also lose a club trick and so go down one. But there is no place for a defeatist attitude at the bridge table, so you begin to look for a way out until, after a while, you concoct a scheme that you hope will turn the tide. When East puts up the queen of hearts, you don’t take it with the ace, but play the jack instead! When East continues with a low heart, you win with dummy’s ten and cash the ace of diamonds, discarding the ace of hearts! Now you cannot be defeated, and you make four spades. The fly in the ointment is that East can upset your plan by returning the king of hearts at trick two rather than a low heart. The low-heart return by East is an error, to be sure, but it is one he might easily make. So if, as we said before, East is a player who never makes a mistake, he will return the king of hearts, and your grand scheme will go up in smoke. But it certainly doesn’t hurt to try! © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Strange But True By Samantha Weaver

• It was Robert Kennedy who made the following sage observation: “One-fifth of the people are against everything all the time.” • An adult ostrich can reach up to 9 feet in height and weigh upward of 300 pounds. • The Taj Mahal, a tomb built by Indian Mogul Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife, Mumtaz Mahal, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most-visited tourist attractions in the world. It wasn’t always so, though; from the time of the building’s completion in 1643 until the British occupied the Indian subcontinent, only Muslims were allowed onto the grounds. If any non-Muslim ventured into the forbidden Taj Mahal, he or she was put to death. •When World War I started, the U.S. Air Force had a grand total of 50 soldiers. • The frigid island nation of Iceland is, by all accounts, a peaceful place. In the entire history of the country, there has been only one armed robbery. • When Albert Einstein was 9 years old, he still wasn’t able to speak fluently. His parents worried that he might be retarded. • In 1957, famed crooner Frank Sinatra wrote for a magazine called “Western World” a piece that included the following: “My only deep sorrow is the unrelenting insistence of recording and motion picture companies upon purveying the most brutal, ugly, degenerate, vicious form of expression it has been my displeasure to hear, and naturally I’m referring to the bulk of rock ‘n’ roll.” He goes on to call it “the martial music of every sideburned delinquent on the face of the earth.” • If you’re like the average human, your body produces about two quarts of saliva every day. *** *** *** ****** *** *** *** Thought for the Day: “Enemies are so stimulating.” -- Katharine Hepburn © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.

Salome’s Stars

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Congratulations, Lamb. This is the week to finish your project and then bask in your wellearned approval. (And if you like, you also can say “bah” to all those detractors.) TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The bold Bovine could find a new opportunity too intriguing to be ignored. But don’t charge into it. Go slowly so you see how things develop as you get more involved. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You might try to soften your stand on that important issue. A little more flexibility actually could get you what you’re looking for. A new friend enters the picture midweek. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Your inner voice is on the mark when it advises you to tackle that family problem now! The sooner you’re able to come to terms with it, the better it will be for everyone. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Someone reveals important news about a longtime associate. But before you decide how to deal with this information, make sure it’s reliable, and not simply selfserving. VIRGO (August 23 to Sept.22) Some intensive soul-searching early in the week can help you reach a decision by week’s end that should please both you and the other person involved. Good luck. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) The possibility of a career change is intriguing. Learn more about what it can offer and what it cannot. Weigh everything carefully. And ask questions. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov.21) Work is your priority this week as you try to make up for lost time. Expect help from someone who cares about you. Things take a welcome turn by the weekend. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) A health problem causes some anxiety early in the week. But prompt medical attention soon eases everyone’s concerns. Enjoy an arts-filled weekend. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.19) As much as you might resent it, a changing situation could require you to adjust your plans accordingly. The good news: An associate agrees to cooperate. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.18) That old problem is finally resolved, just in time for you to take on a new work-related project. This one could be the super door-opener you’ve been looking for. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) The early part of the week presents some difficult hurdles. But once you get over them, you can start to focus on matters that are more important to you. BORN THIS WEEK: You are respected for your honesty and your dedication to doing the right thing, no matter how difficult that might be. © 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.
