The Editor’s Corner

Building The Story

Growing up on the ranch we had a deadfall at the back of the property. The lonely trunk of a long discarded tree. We didn’t know it’s origin, but that never stopped us from creating one. Was the tree lightning struck? It was a description I learned reading Westerns by masters like Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey. At the time it felt magical, and, truth be told, there’s still a bit of pixie dust in those words for me. If not lightning struck, what then? The bark was hard, dark and smooth. It felt like driftwood I remembered from living on the beach. But here it was in the back of a quarter horse ranch in central Florida, a hundred miles from any sizeable water. Could this tree be a relic, some petrified monolith from prehistory? That tree never revealed its secrets, never told us its story. So we worked overtime to create our own. In it we were Solo and Skywalker, fleeing the Empire with a Princess and a cargo hold chock full of contraband. We were pirates pillaging ships of the line and aircraft carrier crews in the Coral Sea. Some days we were tank commanders on the hunt for the Desert Fox or Indiana Jones on one crusade or another. The tree never tired of our adventures. No matter who we were or what we were doing, that tree was a vehicle for our imaginations, both a catalyst and a backdrop for our stories. A little over a year ago,

a friend whose kids had outgrown their backyard fort and swingset offered to give it to me if I could come by and get it. The fort was weathered and well loved. Perfect for my imaginative rugrats to discover their own stories. We picked it up, got it to the house and got it reassembled with the help of a yeomen band of family and friends. Almost immediately the fort was a castle, a firehouse and, yes, a pirate ship. The slide was never just a slide. The swings rarely just swings. Every part of “Fort Porter” was a catalyst for adventure. Then we moved. We had found a place on the river, a home that looked like the perfect waterside retreat for mom and dad and the ideal place for rambunctious little guys to make some memories. Unfortunately, the fort, at least much of it, would not survive another move. We scavenged what we could, promising the boys that Fort Porter would live again. Construction of the new Fortress of Imagination began about a month ago. Weather and weekend work – and a construction crew of no one but Yours Truly – helped drag out the process. Last weekend we put the floors in and the roof on. The tower is up and next on the agenda are a guardrails and the swingset arm. The kids will never notice, but when Dad rebuilt their favorite place, he took some time to

place guardrails around their imaginations. Not to keep the adventure out, but to push danger a step back, to keep reality from intruding too far

into their adventures. They will have the rest of their lives to battle the “real world.” For a while yet, I just want them to have the stories.

After viewing and discussing two movies about these colorful Australian natives, each student designed and painted an original, “Aborigine,” canvas banner to grace the walls of the Banquet Room in the Kings Point North Clubhouse where the show was held. The show’s official judge, Rose Edin, judged the student artwork along with that of the League’s artists’ work. A first place ribbon was awarded to Alfredo Hinojoza; second place winner was Norian Mendez; third place went to Selena Perez; and Daniela Sanchez received an Honorable Mention. All eleven students were celebrated when they visited the art show on Wednesday, February 25.

Janice Grillo, Hala Saab, Carol Ramsey, Terry Mince, John P. Healey, Roe-Enid Boudreau, and Diane G. Simon.

Thanks Chief Schramm Chief Noreen Schramm’s term of office ended at the end of March after two years and three months at the helm.  A lot has happened during that time span.  We now have a power lifter on each of the four ambulances.  This helps make transport of our patients more comfortable and saves wear and tear on the backs of our volunteers. Expensive Verizon cell phones have been replaced with TracPhones.  We have installed brand new 800 MHz radios in each of our fully equipped ambulances and we now can communicate directly with the hospitals. The Squad received the very high honor of being named the top EMS agency in the State of Florida for its service to seniors.   The Florida Department of Aging presented this award to Chief Schramm in front of an applauding audience of over 700 attendees. Channel 8 featured the Squad in their segment of “What’s Good About Tampa Bay.”  They were also featured on Channel 10 in the segment, “Making a Difference.” Although Chief Schramm’s tenure as Chief is over, she will continue in her role as an EMT on several of the teams as well as being a mentor to newer members of the Squad.We will miss her guidance, leadership,

A very generous donation of $300 was presented to Chief Noreen Schramm by the KP Ohio Club.  Chief Schramm explained that the Squad is fully supported by the community and without the financial generosity of our neighbors, we would not be able to continue in our mission of “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.”

Kings Point Golf Club 2014 Ryder Cup Submitted by Jackie McDow

The 2014 Ryder Cup was played at the Kings Point Academy Course on February 9, 2014 with the Red Devils defeating the Bad Boys. At the sit down table dinner on February 8 with wives or significant others attending, the teams and opponents were announced. In the speeches, the captains poked fun at each other for the amusement of the audience. Photos of all couples were taken with copies given out the next day. The gentlemen wore their jackets and ties and wore shirts in the team colors; the Red Devils in Red and the Bad Boys in Blue. Next year’s event has already been planned, so watch for the flyers in December at all the Club Link golf courses in Sun City.

2014, April The News of Kings Point

The News of Freedom Plaza Submitted by MJ Rice The Plaza Players Club celebrates a birthday. The Freedom Plaza drama Club’s initial meeting in 2012 was attended by a small, but enthusiastic group who agreed on the name, set the dues ($10.00) for the year beginning in 2013. Called upon to present skits to entertain at Marketing events Plaza Players happily performed at these events. Before long, in November, 2013, “America Celebrates Freedom” during Freedom Plaza’s Military week demonstrated the ability of the Club to mount a successful production. So, here we are in 2014, the second year of existence with an increased membership, willing and able! The 2014 season opened the evening of March 21with“Two for the Show – A New Approach to Reader’s Theatre” featuring Freedom Plaza residents John Foster and MJ Rice. Both of whom appeared in the initial 2013 production. Responding to the actors on stage with a great deal of laughter and applause, afterwards, through written and oral comments the audience expressed their appreciation of the performances of the two accomplished actors as they entertained the residents of Freedom Plaza. The show, presented in three scenes included the opening of the ever popular “On Golden Pond”, a Senior Resource original short play, “Welcome to Acceptance” and ended with a short conversation between two really old people who cannot seem to remember who they are. “I’m Herbert” was written by Robert Anderson and proved to be the hit of the evening as it resonated with our audience. As advertised, the actors demonstrated a new and successful approach toReader’s Theatre.Commandingattention, the two actors convincingly staged “Two for the Show”acting, moving around the stage with books in hand. Seldom used, they became just another prop. Mission accomplished, the 2014 opener of the Plaza Players was deemed a hit! Two new productions and an encore of last year’s “America Celebrates Freedom” will fill this years season. Next up will be “Pasta, Passion and Pistols.” A Mystery dinner theatre presentation directed by Bill Turcotte is already in rehearsal. Get ready for a fun filled evening. The performance is scheduled for May in the newly renovated Plaza Club. Date TBA.

For Military week, an annual event, Diane Turcotte announced “The Attic, A Trunk and Broadway Memories” will be performed Monday, November 10, 2014. Dianne who is fine tuning a new, original production has announced that Carole Austin has agreed to be her Musical Director. The encore performance of “America Celebrates Freedom” will be at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center on July 2, 2014 at 6:00 PM. This original production was also written by Dianne Turcotte. A dramatic, visual presentation of Americas’ fight to preserve the promise of America, liberty and freedom for future generations. With music, scenes and speeches of the times the cast portrays historic occasions including the rebellion against England, the emancipation and freeing of the slaves, the suffrage movement that secured the right to vote women. The show was a much needed reminder of our country’s ongoing struggle to remain free. The first full production of the newly formed Plaza Players successfully fulfilled the Club’s stated purpose, briefly, “To present, suitable, quality entertainment for the enjoyment of residents”. A New League At Freedom Fairways It must be spring. Golf is in the air. A mixed couple’s event, in existence for some time at Freedom Fairways is, due to increased interest in a mixed league being organized. Julian Graham and Dorothy Wagasky, two popular and busy residents of Freedom Plaza have announced a start date for the new League. Belles & Beaus will meet one Saturday a month and is open all resident golfers of Sun City Center. The first meeting of the  new Belles and Beaus League will be Saturday, April 19, 2014. Players assemble at 7:30 at the Pro Shop. Shotgun start will be at 7:45. A modified scramble, the fee is $15.00. If you use your own cart the fee is $12.00.  A tournament fee  of $1.00 will be collected  for  prizes which will be determined by the number of players. Freedom Plaza residents may sign up on the second floor Plaza bulletin board. All other residents of Sun City Center please call the Pro Shop at (813) 6334653. Great idea? This writer thinks so!

MFST Looking for WWII Veterans to Take on Honor Flights

Military News

The Military Family Support Trust (MFST) based in Sun City Center, FL is looking for World War II veterans who they can take on the Honor Flights to Washington D.C. The daylong Honor Flight visits to Washington D.C. and the war memorials is a complimentary gift of thanks to the WWII veterans. Each veteran has to have a ‘Guardian’ for the visit. MFST has a special program, The Donald P. Schings Honor Flight Support Program, to sponsor ‘Guardians’ for veterans who otherwise may not be able to take advantage of this wonderful program to honor and say thanks for the service of WWII veterans. Both veterans in the photo are on the record with a message to their fellow WWII veterans: “Don’t miss out on the once in a lifetime experience. You earned in; now enjoy it!! If you are fit to travel, can take any medications you need with you and can be, if needed, pushed in a wheelchair by your ‘guardian’ for the day make ‘go for it now’. It’s a long day but worth every minute of it. Contact MFST and they will make the arrangements.” MFST contact details are: Office (weekdays 10 a.m. to midday) 813634-4675 or by email, President@mobc-online.org Colonel Bill Shanks, USMC, Ret. (WWII Pacific Theater) and Augustine Fleischman (WWII, US Army, Normandy Beaches, France, Germany, Philippines and Japan) with their Guardians Connie Lesko and Colin Howgill at St. Petersburg/Clearwater International Airport at the start of their Honor Flight Mission 13, October 8th 2013.

SCC Shuffleboard Club Enjoys a Day of Fun

On February 22, 2014 the Shuffleboard Club enjoyed their second Fun Shuffle event. This year members and guests not only enjoyed some unique trick shuffle shots they also gathered for hotdogs, refreshments, and fellowship in the pineapple courtyard. It was so nice to see SCC folks laughing like kids at the fair. The day was not only a time for refreshments and visiting but there was a great deal of competition at the shuffleboard courts. Over fifty contestants competed for prizes and bragging rights. There were seven fun courts set up to help shufflers hone their skills. All shufflers had to complete the first five mandated obstacle shots and be judged before their scores could be recorded. This year competitors had to navigate the: obstacle pin court, the rail shot, the bungee shot, the pin drop and the most difficult bunny shot. The snuggle shot and the kitchen shot were optional. Pictured below on the left is Dave Botting receiving his first place award from Jerry Healy event director and VP

Corry McClellan & Cassie Krowl Came Top of A Flight

Sixty-seven women took part in this tournament, playing in some or all of the events.  They traveled to Sarasota from other parts of Florida:  Mount Dora, Lakeland, Clearwater and Port Charlotte as well as Sun City Center; from other parts of the country: Pittsburgh, PA and Milwaukee, WI; and from parts of Canada:  Bridgetown, Nova Scotia and Midland, Ontario.

SCC Lawn Bowling 2014 Club Champion

This year’s club champion Jim Byrne earned this title and his strips on Wednesday March 19th. The road to the champion title was no easy task; Jim faced stiff competition from a number of excellent players including his win over Joe Mignogna the 2012 club champion. Just as triumphant as his win was in the men’s division, his final match and win against the women’s 2014 club champion Diann Thomas was just as challenging. Diann was no push over she led Jim in the early stages of the match. However, Jim maintained a steady hand and kept delivering very close shots including two crucial takeout shots to turn the tide in his favor. Jim went on to reach the 21 points needed to claim the club champion title. Because of the significance and honor of winning the women’s and men’s club champion titles included are two photos of our club winners. Ms. Thomas the women’s title winner on the left and our reigning 2014 club champion Jim Byrne on the right.

Snowballs on The Green

Submitted by Linda Hawken A new and different format of lawn bowling was played at the Sun City Center Lawn Bowling Club recently when Tournament Director Tony Hawken introduced a “Snowball” Tournament.  Triples teams play this format with each member of the team playing 4 ends as first Lead, then 4 as Vice and finally 4 as Skip of their own team. This unique type of play allows each team member to become familiar with the different positions and is a valuable learning tool for new bowlers and more experienced ones alike. No prizes were awarded – this was simply an introduction to the Snowball – but a lot of fun was had by the ten teams who participated. For more information about the SCC Lawn Bowling Club, contact President Paul Ward on 938.4166 or visit our website at www.suncitycenterlawnbowlingclub. com.

Hearing Aid Project

If you are like many residents of Sun City Center you might use hearing aids.  Often, after years of use and hearing aid malfunctions you find that you need new ones.  Then the question is what to do with the old ones.  The Men’s Club of Sun City Center can help you dispose of the old hearing aids. The Men’s Club recently agreed to a partnership with the Florida Sertoma Club to gather used or defective hearings aids, no matter what type or condition.  The hearing aids will be refurbished by Sertoma and given to children, primarily through the Children’s Hearing Help Fund Aid Loan Bank.  The bank is made possible through the collaboration of Sertoma and the Florida Department of Health.  Hearing aids that are not suitable for children or repair will be salvaged for valuable hearing aid components. The Men’s Club will distribute containers to businesses, churches, and other public domains throughout the greater Sun City Center area.  The hope is that the community will support this worthy cause. So, look for the containers bearing the blue and white Sertoma labels, asking for your help. For more information on the Hearing Aid Project please contact project chairman, Lyle Watson at 813.633.9096.

GFWC SCC Woman’s Club News

At their regular monthly luncheon meeting held on February 20th, members and guests of the GFWC SCC Woman’s club were treated to a very informative program by Joanne Sudman of the little known heart disease condition Long QT Syndrome.      Having lost a grandson under the age of two several years ago,  Joanne Sudman, wife of CA Board member, Sam Sudman, shared both her personal story and a great deal of general information on this heart disease topic. Although children and adults have been afflicted with this condition for years, tragically and all too often it is only discovered after the football player or other young person dies suddenly of no apparent reason.   Realizing that only through early detection and treatment could other families be spared this same heartbreak, Joanne and her family turned their personal tragedy into an opportunity to help others through the creation of Simon’s Fund.  Simonsfund.org is an organization dedicated to the diagnosis and early treatment of this potentially deadly condition.   Following her moving presentation, Joanne urged all ladies attending to consider having their loved ones tested.  Simonsfund.org, although originally established in Pennsylvania, is now available in many other states and continues to grow.

Computer Club Activity Changes

The extensive building program by the Community Association will result in a major parking problem on the Central Campus. This is scheduled to begin on March 27. Therefore, the following changes in the Computer Club activities are necessary. The APRIL 2 and MAY 7 Membership Meetings have been canceled. We hope to resume meetings in October. No Computer Classes or Workshops are scheduled until fall, but the Monitors in the Lab and the Help Line are available to assist. The LAB will continue to be open during its normal hours: 12:30 5:00 pm, daily except Sundays. Surplus Computer Equipment cannot be accepted during this period. The Computer Club “Journal” will continue to be published and mailed to Members. We regret having to make these limitations, but your safety requires such moves.

GFWC SCC Woman’s Club Donates $7,500 to Samaritan Alzheimer’s Auxiliary

At their February monthly membership meeting at community hall, the GFWC SCC Woman’s Club once again showed their community focused generosity when they presented a check for $7,500 to Dolores Berens, president and founder of SCC’s Samaritan Alzheimer’s Auxiliary.   These funds were received by the Woman’s Club as a grant from the Community Foundation with the stipulation they go to another 501c3 organization.  Samaritan’s Alzheimer’s Auxiliary was chosen by the woman’s club board to be the lucky recipient.   The auxiliary provides a valuable service to our community by giving respite care to Alzheimer’s caregivers offering them a choice Photo by Mary Culliton of receiving 50 hours of in-home L to R: Jean Smith, President care, 50 hours at a daycare facility SCC Woman’s Club and or a seven-day stay at an assisted Dolores Berens, President Samaritan Alzheimer’s living facility in Sun City Center of each year for those they care Auxiliary for.  Using only the funds they receive in donations, the auxiliary is able to provide caregivers this much needed respite care for free.

New PAL Ministry at Local Church

Pastor Mark Salmon of St. Andrew Presbyterian Church in Sun City Center asked his congregation at a recent worship service to commit a Presbyterian Act of Love (PAL), each day for a month, to help offset the many random acts of violence in our society today.  He gave twelve suggestions.  For example, one could take a small gift to a sick person, or smile at an elderly person, or just listen to someone’s problems.  Dr. Salmon got laughs when he suggested to the senior-age congregation, “For no reason, send a postcard to your grandparents.”  Seriously, he then explained that if 400 church members did an act of love each day for a month, there would be about 12,000 extra acts of love in our community alone.  St. Andrew is located at 1239 Del Webb Blvd.

Retired minister’s first book published Betty Beach-Connell’s story is one of a life defined by adventure and grace Kings Point resident and retired Methodist minister, Rev. Betty Beach Connell, recently published her first book, “Embracing the Call.” Rev. Betty said “Embracing the Call” is the true story of what can happen when an imperfect woman discovers a perfectly gracious God. “I was in active ministry for twenty-eight years. But, before that, I spent thirty-seven years trying to make it on my own, taking my lumps and learning from my mistakes. And not always learning the first time.” Connell said. “Embracing the Call” certainly pulls no punches. It is the unvarnished truth confessed by a dear friend, a tale of human limitations and God’s limitless grace. Betty is relatable because she is so real, admittedly flawed but dedicated to pursuing God’s call on her life above all else. “It wasn’t anything I did that transformed my life. It was God’s love that gave me peace, grace and purpose.” Connell said. Betty’s story begins on an idyllic farm in rural New York, then traces her journey through painful teen years and a young love that nearly destroyed her. It is a coming of age story that many women can relate to. Betty’s tale is also about a life split

death struggles, but she would never again have to face them alone. Rev. Connell’s message is simple, poignant and powerful. “Young or old, there are no limits. Because God has no limits. Take that first step, and watch Him amaze you. It is my hope that ‘Embracing the Call’ will encourage you to do just that.”

in two by a day of reckoning that changed one woman’s path in life and created a legacy that has touched three generations. And it is a shining example of what can happen when you stop guessing, say “yes” to God and discover your own divine Call. From farm girl in a frilly dress, to an abused young woman lost in love, to a single mother struggling to survive, Betty’s life before ministry is every bit as compelling as her pioneering struggle as a woman called by God to embrace a role church tradition, doctrine, family and friends would have denied her. Betty persevered, she listened to God’s voice and found in her calling a life of joy and fulfillment unlike any she could have ever expected. There were still hurdles, challenges and life-or-

Life is good so T-shirts say... Childhoods filled with fantasy, wonder and endless play. Long summer days, sunsets indefinitely on hold   give way to responsibility, accountability, and the   race for unattainable gold. Enticed by the desires of the world, bound by    pleasures of the earth, It’s incomprehensible that sparkle doesn’t     determine worth. Eventually the door closes on that which defined    us before, A bit uneasy as we search for more. In quiet unencumbered time we find what’s of    value true. Love, grace, mercy and what unto others we must do. Days begin to darken, their pace quickens to a    blur. Those all-around are quick to concur. Sunrise and sunsets blend as one, our lives with    challenges abound, Each a preparation for the Final Lap for which    Resolution has already been found. Holding fast to the assurance that the sky IS the    limit of the road that was getting rough; Look up...Look up...the empyrean entrance is big    enough. ©2014 Suzanne S. Austin-Hill

Contract Bridge Super Crossword

By Steve Becker RISKY BUSINESS

FIRST LETTER BEFORE YOU

I have it on good authority that this deal actually occurred in a pair championship some years ago. There is no point in saying that hands such as South’s are never dealt, as the players involved would testify to the contrary. South opened four notrump, planning to bid a grand slam if his partner showed one ace in response to Blackwood. But South was playing against very

Solutions on Page 35

active opponents, and by the time it was his turn to bid again, East-West were in six hearts. Reluctant to settle for a small penalty, and convinced that he could not make seven clubs, South ventured six spades. It seemed to him that on the bidding, North would have spade length. At any rate, he fervently hoped so. When East doubled, South stood solidly behind his decision and passed. West led the king of diamonds, and South was home. He won with the ace and played the K-Q-J of trumps, East holding up the ace until the third round. East returned a diamond, ruffed by declarer with the deuce, his last trump. South then ruffed the ace of hearts in dummy, drew East’s last trump with the ten and ran his clubs to score the slam. West could have defeated the slam with a club lead, but that does not detract from the credit due South for his bold bid. South might have been carted off in an ambulance had his partner been short of spades. But he took the position that six hearts doubled would yield a poor result and that he could not lose much -- and might gain a lot -by his seemingly reckless bid. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

Strange But True

By Samantha Weaver • It was President John F. Kennedy who made the following sage observation: “Too often we enjoy the comfort of opinion without the discomfort of thought.” • If you’re planning a trip to Kentucky anytime soon, you’d better keep a close rein on your interactions with strangers. It seems that flirting there is illegal and could get you 30 days in jail. • If you’re like me, social situations can be a nightmare of trying -- and usually failing -- to remember the names of all your new acquaintances. The next time you find yourself struggling to name the person you’re conversing with, you can always segue into this interesting tidbit: The inability to remember names is technically known as anomia. • Those who study such things claim that more Jell-O is eaten in Utah than anywhere else in the world. • W.H. Auden was already a celebrated poet when he left Great Britain for America in 1939. His admirers on the other side of the Atlantic, therefore, may have been surprised that when he arrived in the U.S. he moved into a run-down house in Brooklyn Heights with roommates ranging from novelist Carson McCullers to composer Benjamin Britten to stripper Gypsy Rose Lee. • The state of Colorado is named (unsurprisingly) after the Colorado River. In Spanish the word means “reddish,” a reference to the appearance of the water in some places. • According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 21 percent of all people living in America speak a language other than English at home. While Spanish is the most frequently spoken after English, several Chinese languages, Korean, Tagalog, Vietnamese and German are each spoken in more than a million households across the country. • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Thought for the Day: “Dogma is the sacrifice of wisdom to consistency.” -- Lewis Perelman © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.

2014, April The News of Kings Point

Salome’s Stars

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) You’ll want to discourage well-meaning but potentially ill-advised interference in what you intend to accomplish. Your work has a better chance to succeed if it reflects you. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) The Bovine’s well-deserved reputation for loyalty could be tested if you learn that it might be misplaced. But don’t rely on rumors. Check the stories out before you decided to act. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) You’ve been going on adrenaline for a long time, and this unexpected lull in a recent spate of excitement could be just what you need to restore your energy levels. Enjoy it. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) Friends can be counted on to help you deal with a perplexing personal situation. But remember to keep your circle of advisers limited only to those you’re sure you can trust. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Securityloving Lions do not appreciate uncertainty in any form. But sometimes changing situations can reveal hidden stresses in time to repair a relationship before it’s too late. VIRGO (August 23 to Sept. 22) This is a good time for single Virgos to make a love connection. Be careful not to be too judgmental about your new “prospect” -- at least until you know more about her or him. LIBRA (September 23 to Oct. 22) Your sense of justice helps you resolve a problem that might have been unfairly attributed to the wrong person. Spend the weekend doing some longneglected chores. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) You might feel justified in your anger toward someone you suspect betrayed your trust. But it could help if you take the time to check if your suspicions have substance. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Ignore distractions if you hope to accomplish your goal by the deadline you agreed to. Keep the finish line in sight, and you should be able to cross it with time to spare. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.19) Your creative self continues to dominate through much of the week. Also, despite a few problems that have cropped up, that recent romantic connection seems to be thriving. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb.18) As curious as you might be, it’s best to avoid trying to learn a colleague’s secret. That sort of knowledge could drag you into a difficult workplace situation at some point down the line. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Instead of spending too much time floundering around wondering if you can meet your deadline, you need to spend more time actually working toward reaching it. BORN THIS WEEK: You have a natural gift for attracting new friends, who are drawn to your unabashed love of what life should be all about. © 2014 King Features Synd., Inc.
