East Hillsborough Community Band Presents a “Night on Broadway”
By NOKP Staff The conductors and members of the East Hillsborough Community Band would like to invite the East and South Hillsborough community to a Night on Broadway, November 4th at 7:00 p.m. at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center. The program will include a collection of favorite show tunes from Fiddler on the Roof, Mary Poppins and the Lion King. Formed in the late spring 2009, the band ﬁrst performed on
December 17, 2009 and has been delighting audiences ever since. An all-volunteer band, EHCB is committed to “providing an opportunity for musicians of all ages and skill levels to perform with a concert band and fostering the development Shanna Holland, Ken Easton of musicians who wish to make Band Director Assistant Director a cultural contribution to their to present a fun, welcoming environment to both community.” Members are of all ages their audience and prospective and come from a variety of members. Though they already backgrounds allowing the band have over 40 members, the
band is always encouraging new players to try out. Currently, they are “especially seeking ﬂute, clarinet, saxophone and percussion.” There is no cost to join, and you do not have to be a resident of East Hillsborough County to be a part of the band. Some of the band members are professionals, while others are simply folks who just want to pick it back up after years of not playing. There are a few simple

Cart Insurance off the Course? Submitted by Debbie Bates, Cypress Creek Allstate Ofﬁce Do you know where your golf cart coverage begins and ends? Not sure? You are certainly not alone. Many of our local residents are not sure whether or not they need to carry golf cart insurance. As an insurance agent I am many times asked if the golf cart is covered under the homeowner’s policy. Yes, the golf cart is often covered under the homeowner’s policy, but what some do not realize is that this coverage only extends to liabilities to others and, then, only while using the cart for golﬁng purposes. As many of you already know, Sun City Center is a unique community that has received permission from Hillsborough County to use golf carts on public roads within the boundaries of the community. As a result, many of the local residents use their golf carts
like a second vehicle to travel to the shopping plaza or the post ofﬁce, sometime crossing State Road 674. This is one of the tremendous advantages of living here. However, unless an individual has an endorsement on the homeowner’s policy or a special golf cart policy, there is not coverage for this exposure. What if an operator of a golf cart pulls out in front of someone causing a collision, backs over a pedestrian in the Sun City Center Plaza or makes a mistake in the parking lot at the Post Ofﬁce? We all know these things happen. Perhaps you or one of your neighbors has learned the hard way that, in those cases, without an in-force endorsement on the policy, there is no coverage for those accidents. Physical damage to the golf cart is another concern. This can be added with a homeowner’s endorsement or added to a golf

cart policy. It is not automatically covered under the personal contents coverage of your homeowners, renters, or condo policy. It is excluded under the homeowners protection and would only be covered for physical damage if endorsed onto the policy. In today’s insurance environment most people try to avoid placing claims on their homeowners policy, preferring to save their insurance for a catastrophic loss. For that

reason, I recommend writing a separate golf cart policy. If you own a golf cart, be sure you understand the language of your policy and get clariﬁcation of anything you do not understand. My advice is to contact your insurance agent and discuss your coverage limits, exclusions and exceptions. He or she is your best assurance that your insurance covers all of your assets no matter where you roam.

requirements for membership. Prospective band members must be able to read music as well as their own instruments and music stands. And, of course, you must be willing and able to practice, both during scheduled group sessions and during your free time. Group rehearsals are held at Music Showcase in Brandon on Thursdays from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. While, again, new members are encouraged to visit, EHCB requests that all prospective members contact
the band before attending a practice session. When not presenting show tunes, the band plays marches, contemporary and jazz. Arrangements range in difﬁculty from high school to the college level. Whatever your skill level, you will be in good hands, following the direction of an experienced baton.

The Editor’s Corner
By Adam Porter, EIC News of Kings Point Fair warning. This will likely be as political a column as you will ever read from me in this paper; but, hey, it is November. Everyone else is talking about it. Thank you. Thank you for showing us the value of experience. It is likely that, on November 2nd, the demographic group that folks like you and your neighbors belong to will, once again, dwarf any others at the polls. Study after study has been conducted proving that those of a certain age are vastly more likely to go to the polls. Many social scientists and not a few campaign managers have asked this same question over and over and over again: “Why?” The reasons and justiﬁcations and prevailing theories are legion. Some are as simple as: “well, they got the time, don’t they?” Personally, I would like to give both you and me more credit than that. Others have postulated complex theorems replete with variables and corresponding data. Much too much ado, if you ask me. Some have concluded that, because of issues like Social Security and Medicare, folks of your particular level of experience have the “most to lose” therefore are the most motivated to protect their privileges. There may be some truth to that, but I suspect that there is more truth in the idea that you have seen what government is capable of, and, thus, wish to vocalize your ﬁrsthand experience and more complete picture of how things really work. Young voters who have come of age with the ﬁrsthand knowledge of only one or two Presidents attain most of their “perspective” from history books, the eternal cliffs notes of reality. Having
lived through multiple versions of various regimes from both sides of the aisle politically, I can ﬁrmly attest to the beginnings of what those who have seen twice as many call “understanding.” While slogans and pipe dreams are tossed around like confetti at a convention, those who have been there, done that and – in some cases, literally – have the t-shirt sit impatiently, waiting for the Pol to say something worth listening to… and likely expecting he’s lying because – as the old joke says – his lips are moving. After all, we know what the problems are. We have seen this cycle before. Glut-warrecession-rebound. Repeat. The “problems” of the world, similar to music and fashion, tend to recycle. We all know the real foundational truths that make our Republic the best country in the world. We all want what’s best for ourselves and our families. We also like to hear a bit of inspiration, hope and wellhoned gravitas. But what are Candidates X and Y going to DO about it? You have likely done your homework and have a fair expectation. So, in advance, I would like to say thank you for reminding the young, naive and often painfully oblivious generations – again – the true value of experience. Knowledge may get a person into an argument, but only experience – and the faith that it can and will get better – will get that person to the polls. Those who do show up to vote for the ﬁrst time will ﬁnd you there, often thanking them for participating. So, as one who has been thanked many times for “taking the time” let me say again: Thank you. I would not have the opportunity if you had not set the example.
musical theater productions in both California and Florida, Shanna has developed her skill on both sides of the podium. Recipient of the John Phillip Sousa Award and member of the Music Educators National Conference and Florida Bandmasters Association, she has a rich and well-deserved musical reputation. Assistant Director, Ken Easton, retired after nearly three decades in music education. The former director of the Middletown Symphonic Band
and Middlesex Community College Concert Band holds a Master’s Degree in Music Education. As comfortable in the pit as at the podium, Ken also plays string bass, trumpet and percussion in the EHCB. The EHCB “Night on Broadway” concert begins at Thursday, Nov 4, at the United Methodist Church of Sun City Center, 1210 Del Webb Blvd. West. The cost is $5.

Lennard High drama teacher, Joie Marsh, has been cast as the wife Bella. Her husband Jack Manningham, played by Rex Hall, is convincing Bella that she is going mad and he is assuring her that she is
“imagining” that the gaslight in the house is dipping every night. Hall has been performing since high school and has worn many hats in the Pelican Players both acting and directing productions. To Bella’s rescue is a police detective called “Rough” comes to Bella’s rescue. Rough is being played by Lawrence MacAlister, another newcomer to the Pelican Players. Carol MacAlister will play the role of Nancy, Bella’s ladies maid who betrays Bella to curry favor with Bella’s husband Jack. Wendy Smith a Pelican Player veteran will play “Elizabeth” the loyal housekeeper. Rounding out the all-star cast are Hank Wolf and Bill Turcotte, who
portray policemen. Both have appeared in Players productions and Turcotte is known as both a director and an actor. Angel Street runs for three performances on November 12th at 7:00 p.m. and on November 13th at 1:30 p.m. and at 7:00 p.m. at the Borini Theater at Kings Point Main Clubhouse at 1900 Clubhouse

Windber in November By Dora Murray When I was a child growing up in my small coalmining town of Windber Pa. November was a child’s paradise. We had snowstorms, snow showers and blizzards but we never had “A Snow Day.” We bundled up in our snowsuits, shoved our feet into our boots, wrapped a scarf around our necks, pulled our hats on, donned our gloves and trudged through the snow on our way to school. We had to repeat the whole process four more times as we went home for lunch. Do you remember the smell of 25 pair of wet boots and snowsuits? Girls wore dresses and stuffed into snowsuits we were wrinkled messes. Most of my girlfriends stopped wearing their snowsuits in 5th or 6th grade. But not me! Uncle Bill got me a red ski suit and when I outgrew it I wore my blue jeans under my dress but I removed them to go to class, as girls were not allowed to wear jeans to school. The Deleaney Field where all the sports were played was ﬂooded and ice-skating was a popular past time for the kids and adults alike. When I was young 9th street was closed for sledding. I would run, slam down on my sled to ride “Belly Bumpers.” When my sister got old enough she went with me. We would sit up and I steered.
Sandy insisted on wearing pretty girls’ gloves, which got wet. She would cry to go home unless I gave her my boy’s leather mittens. We made “snow Angles”, our snowmen never lacked coal for their eyes, mouths and snowball battles were safe as it was an unwritten rule “NO Ice Snowballs”. The ladies of our little Pa. Dutch Evan Church made homemade vegetable beef soup once for lunch every November. They charged 20 cents and the basement was ﬁlled with kids of all ages and religious persuasions. Mother made a good vegetable soup. But Daddy would complain, “Lelah, Do you have to make enough to feed an army?” Years later I understood why. In those days fresh vegetables were not available in winter months so she had to use canned vegetables and the rest were fresh vegetables. While it might have been a child’s paradise it must have been difﬁcult for the adults. There were few cars, most miners walked to work. The men and the boys had to shovel the snow. Furnaces had to be fed with coal, ashes carried out; it was a lot of work. Some still cooked with coal. Others cooked with kerosene. Old fashioned washers and wringers, no dryers so the wash was either hung on
clotheslines outside where they froze or hung in the house to dry, which took forever. But that was then and this is now. We have modern washers and dryers, freezers, snow blowers,
fresh fruits and vegetables year round, no clothes lines [against association rules] and the seniors of my childhood would be amazed at our life style in Kings Point.

Hey Anne, What can I plant this month that will do well for the fall and winter? Anneswer: It’s a great time to plant herbs, veggies, shrubs and trees. Let’s start with herbs. All the mints: chocolate mint, peppermint and spearmint may just tolerate the other seasons but they ﬂourish in the cooler weather. Who wouldn’t like a cup of hot mint tea on a cold
winter day? Rosemary, thyme (many kinds), sage and oregano all prefer the cooler, drier season. They will tolerate a light freeze. These are the herbs for winter soups and stews. Try squash soup with fresh thyme! Cilantro is now happy and growing fast. Many folks think they can’t grow cilantro, but when you realize that it is a short-lived, cool weather plant you will succeed. It lasts much longer (two months) during our cool season taking much longer to set seed then die. In the heat it goes to seed in two to three weeks! Basil likes temperatures over 50F. So don’t plant it in the garden directly. Use a container that can be moved inside during cold spells and then put back out in its same spot the minute it warms up some. If you keep it inside too long it will leggy and yellowish, plus it will get sunburned when you put it back out in the sun. Vegetables are in prime time. Fall and winter are the best veggie seasons. The only
problem is the occasional freezing at night. The vegetables that can take a light freeze are: snow peas, cabbage, brussel sprouts, cauliﬂower, onions, shallots, lettuce, arugula, and nasturtiums. The tender vegetables that like cooler, drier temperatures but would be hurt by frost or freeze will have to be covered up over night. They include tomatoes, cucumbers, eggplants, peppers, squash, collards and strawberries. Autumn is perfect timing for
establishing new shrubs and trees. The cooler temperatures mean less water stress and all winter to grow roots deep and far before the spring growth spurt kicks in. Citrus planted now will be established by the time the spring blooming period starts and will hold more fruit to ripening. Don’t forget to fertilize now. You should fertilize again every February ﬁfteenth so the trees are not hungry in March when they bloom and set fruit.

Tis the Season for Safety Submitted by Deputy Chris Girard The lights and displays are already going up at the local stores. You are likely making your list and checking it twice. The holidays are right around the corner and I want to help you make sure they are as merry as possible. I know we don’t like to think about it during this festive time of year, but the holidays also bring out the worst in some people. Thefts and burglaries increase and people always seem to be hurried, harried and distracted. But there are some simple things you can do to be informed and prepared for a safe and happy holiday shopping experience. Ladies, if you carry a purse please be aware that purse snatchings are one of the most common crimes this time a year. You can make yourself less likely to be a victim by following a few simple steps. Unless absolutely necessary, do not carry a purse at all. Keep your wallet, debit cards and identiﬁcation in a zipped or buttoned pocket. If you must carry a purse, opt for one that can be strapped around you tightly and worn on the front. If you carry a purse but can leave it in your car, do not leave it visible – put it in the trunk. Also, if you can avoid carrying cash, do so. I know many of us like to carry cash in order to avoid overspending, but you can also carry a debit card or checks. If you do carry checks, only bring enough for the shopping you plan to do. Do not bring your entire checkbook with you. And everyone should use extra caution while shopping and while going to and from your vehicle. Thieves may follow you, looking for an opportunity to strike. If you are carefully vigilant, this will limit their opportunities. A great way to do this is to always shop with a

buddy. Having a friend to watch your surroundings while you are getting out your keys, looking through a shopping bag or perusing your list will give you an added measure of safety. If you must shop alone request that a security guard or store personnel escort you to your vehicle. If at all possible, do not make multiple trips to the car with gifts. Thieves will often follow a shopper out, wait for them to go back into the store and then break into the car to steal the items. Only making one trip does not give them this opportunity. When you arrive back home, check your mirrors before exiting your vehicle, and look around as you are getting into your car to get your bags out. Too often folks are distracted by the phone or just lost in their thoughts during this time of year. That makes them an easy mark for thieves. So, follow these safety tips, be aware of your surroundings and have a safe and happy holiday shopping experience.

While Kings Point and Sun City Center allow for carts off From l to r Don Dudek, Russ Stutz, Les Clarke, Bill Noyes & John McDougall the course, they are not exempt from trafﬁc laws.

Apollo Beach Women’s Club Events Community out reach programs and fund-raising activities are in full swing for members of the Apollo Beach Woman’s Club. Most recently, Barbara Lamneck and Rosemary Kolodziejczak co-chairs of Community Service, with the help of many of our members purchased underwear, shorts, shirts and belts at the request of the school nurses at Apollo Beach and Doby elementary schools, both of which serve the Apollo Beach community. For Thanksgiving, grocery store gift certiﬁcates in the amount of $100 each will be given to four families in need, two each from Apollo Beach and Doby elementary schools. During the Christmas holiday season, the club will adopt two families, one each from the two elementary schools. An Angel Tree will be available at the November luncheon so members may take an angel with a gift wish to fulﬁll and return the wrapped gift with the tag at the December meeting. Lamneck and Kolodziejczak also are collecting Box Tops for Education and Campbell Soup labels that later will be redeemed to help provide supplies for school classrooms. The next ABWC fund-raising activity is the annual November bake sale slated for Nov. 23, in
front of the Apollo Meat Market on Apollo Beach Boulevard, two days before Thanksgiving. Proceeds from this event also support scholarship and community activities. The event is being organized by Sonja Davidson, who is looking for volunteers to set up, sell items, and bake cakes, pies and cookies. In addition to its philanthropic work, members of the club also enjoy enrichment activities, which include: Book Club: The book group meets monthly in members’ homes to discuss the latest novel members have read.

activities that include talks by horticulturists or visits to nearby garden or horticultural spots.

Dixon’s Day Trips
Angels Trim Pinewood for Christmas By Eddie Dixon, photos courtesy Bok Tower Gardens As you stroll the palatial grounds here at the Pinewood Estate it’s tough to believe that a man who spent his days in and around a steelworks would have this much Mediterranean style. Then, again, Bethlehem Steel VP, Charles Austin Buck, had the best talents in the business working to turn a swath of central Florida hill country into a sprawling Spanish Estate. In designing the estate, Buck’s architects and decorators spared no expense in creating a “real deal” Romanesque and Moorish manse. Completed in 1932, Mr. Buck christened his new escape “El Retiro.” The place is incredible inside and out. The exterior of the 12,900 square foot manse is every bit the Mediterranean villa Buck envisioned. Barrel tile roof, sweeping lines, hand-carved doors and decorative wrought iron. Inside, I was suitably stunned to ﬁnd wall-to-wall hand-cut ﬂooring and matching wall tiles, hand-painted in Spain. Buck had the ﬂooring shipped in from Cuba, one of his favorite Caribbean hideaways. Each room is different – and more stunning than the next. As you walk through, be sure not to bump any of the decorations. Some of the statuary and furniture dates back to the 17th century! Betraying an obvious woman’s touch in the planning and layout, each bedroom is decorated in its own unique style – and comes complete with a private bathroom. Another “modern” convenience is electricity, installed during construction – and some of the lights still work. Now that’s a wiring job! One thing that today’s visitors enjoy that was not available to the original owners is central air conditioning. It’s nice to be able to study the interesting architecture that allowed the Bucks to remain relatively cool, but it’s much easier to appreciate if you don’t have to experience it. God bless climate control!
While I was impressed with the Pinewood Estate’s rich cultural and architectural sights, my missus was enthralled with the three surrounding gardens. Each one has it’s own personality, including the formal garden with the signature Spanish frog fountain and stone grotto, the moon gate fountain in the garden nearest the dining room and an English country garden on the west side of the property where a quiet pond reﬂects the sun as it crosses the sky and disappears behind the horizon. Pinewood will be closed for a month – October 28th to November 25th – while Bok Tower Gardens’ volunteer angels decorate with this year’s “Christmas at Pinewood” theme. Each year concerts and programs are offered that reﬂect the chosen theme. This year one of the programs is “Wintersong” by Tammerlin. This beautiful and unique holiday program consists of ancient and modern carols, poems, readings and seasonal songs. Guests will have the opportunity to meet the artists at a special champagne reception following the concert.
Reservations required for this event. When the estate reopens, visitors can take self-guided tours Monday through Saturday from noon to 4:00 p.m. and on Sundays from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. Admission tickets for Pinewood can be purchased at the Entrance Gate, Visitor Center and at the Pinewood Estate front door (cash or checks only here).
Pinewood Estate is located at the Bok Tower Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida. The Singing Tower itself is worth a trip, but we’ll save that for another day. For more information about Pinewood Estate or to purchase tickets to tour Pinewood during the holidays, visit “http://boktowergardens.org/ about/pinewood-estate” or call 863.676.1408.

KP Lawn Bowling News Submitted by Suzanne Maguire
The grand opening of the new Green took place on Thursday, October 7th under sunny skies with a cooling breeze wafting about. The team members in their regulation “whites” were the majority in the crowd showing up for coffee and donuts. Rene Aube, president informed all the members and guests of the progress that has been made since last April, when the ﬁeld was in bad, almost unplayable shape. A contract was put out, and after digging, adding dirt, chemicals, plugs were inserted over the entire ﬁeld. These plugs were donated by the Sun City Center Lawn Bowling Club. The green has been heavily fertilized and in addition watered daily. As of this date it is green, but not ready for playing yet. Rene is looking at a November 1st. starting date. In addition, Rene, Joe White and John Copenhaver showed off their latest accomplishment, a totally, clean, refurbished shack, which was moved next to the clubhouse. This equipment room will enable all players to get their necessary playing equipment without having to step on the playing ﬁeld. It also clears trafﬁc from the Clubhouse for other activities. The next meeting will be strictly for comments, suggestions, additions, etc. and will be at 7:00 p.m. Wednesday, October 20th.
“Perhaps the best Yuletide decoration is being wreathed in smiles.” Author Unknown Sun City Center Community Association and our Friends at Kings Point invite you to celebrate the holiday on December 11th with a golf cart parade decorated by the community’s businesses, clubs, churches, homeowner associations and individuals. The ingenuity of our residents is astounding and will surely bring a smile. Parade begins at 10:30 a.m. at the far end of North Pebble Beach parking lot, turns right onto La Jolla, another right onto Cherry Hills and ends at the Central Campus Gazebo. Check-in, line up & judging will begin at 9:45 a.m. Organ music and a sing-a-long will be awaiting the parade ﬁnish. Tropical Santa will be on hand to make presentations of the circulating Lenox crystal vase and its personalized engraved plate. An assortment of gift certiﬁcates will also be given to the ﬁve winners. Registration forms can be picked up and returned at the CA Ofﬁce or the KP Concierge Desk in the North Club House. Questions: CA- Anne 813.633.8508 or KP- Maurice 813.634.2573. Your call, if recorded, will be returned promptly. To ensure that carts are decorated for the enjoyment of the audience, there are a few rules: • Signage on carts is limited to two (2) standard size poster boards. •At least 50% of the cart should be decorated. Carts with only an advertising sign and a few decorations such as a wreath or a bow are not showing the spirit of the holiday.

B U L L E T I N C.A.R.E. Microchips Pets for FREE - Limited Time
Give your pet a better chance to be returned to you if it ever becomes lost! To help area residents increase their chances of ﬁnding a lost pet, the C.A.R.E. no-kill animal shelter in Ruskin is offering free microchips to area residents for a limited time. Microchips are implanted between your pet’s should blades and, if the pet ever becomes lost and subsequently found by a stranger, the pet could be taken to any veterinary ofﬁce or animal shelter and they would be able to “read” the chip information with a standardized microchip reader. The chip maker would then be able to identify who the chip was registered to and could help the ﬁnder get in contact with you. These clinics are being been made possible by a grant from the Sun City Center Community Foundation and are being implanted in pets through the generosity of the staff at the Boyette Animal Hospital. The ﬁrst microchip implant clinic will be held at the Boyette Animal Hospital on November 13th from 12:00 noon until 4:00 p.m. The hospital is located at 10931 Boyette Road in Riverview and an appointment is required. Quantities of microchips are limited and owners must bring proof that their pet is current on its rabies vaccination in order to have the pet chipped. To make an appointment , please call Boyette Animal Hospital by Friday, November 12th. Additional free clinics will be offered in upcoming months at other locations. If you have any questions, please call C.A.R.E. at 813.645.2273 any Tuesday through Saturday between 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. or call Boyette Animal Hospital at 813.671.3400 for an appointment.

Since moving to Sun City Center in 2000, he served two years as Editor of The News of Sun City Center and wrote documentaries with music for The Performing Arts Club of SCC and the Pelican Players. His topic will be “Words on Words.” With his usual dry sense of humor he describes the topic thusly, “It will have something to do with writing that matters in literature, theater, journalism, and politics or something like that.” It will be an evening well worth your attendance. If you have teenagers in your life bring them. You do not have to be a Pelican Player to attend our workshops and they are free.

How much wood would a KP Woodchopper chop? Actually not much, but a KP Woodchopper would, and does, saw, plane, route, drill, sand and glue a lot of wood – pine, oak, cypress, cherry, walnut, etc. If you need a one-of-akind bookcase, picture frame, ﬂag box, bed riser, handicap ramp or Bob Erisman, president of KP Woodchoppers, inspect other wood piece, the hinges on cupboard made for a KP customer come by the shop by the back corridor of the North Clubhouse and talk to one of the guys working there. Someone will be there from 8:30 until 11:30 a.m. Monday through Friday. Or look in the display cases there or in the front corridor in the same building. We are sure you will ﬁnd neat little items for holiday gifts or something different for your house. If you want to try your hand at working with wood, go to the badge ofﬁce, sign a liability waiver and get a worker badge. The shop does not supply wood; you must bring your own. (Home Depot has a supply of pine, red oak and poplar) and the guys can tell you where to buy more exotic woods locally. We can also show you how to safely use the tools. We also repair (if repairable) wood chairs & tables but sorry – we do not make house calls. Come see us if just to inhale the great odor of wood being worked.

B U L L E T I N Woman’s Club Past Presidents’ Tea a Success
L-R Louise Lee, Manager Nearly New Shop Women’s Department, Pat Pelton, SCC Interfaith Council Board Member, Linda Atkins, Club Member. These ladies were at the hat table to help members pick out a hat to wear at the event. A small donation was required and all donations were given to the Nearly New Shop.
The GFWC Sun City Center Woman’s Club Past Presidents’ Tea, which was held on Thursday, September 16, 2010 was a great success! 75 members and eleven visitors from GFWC Florida Woman’s Clubs attended. Janet Cardulla, President, welcomed
everyone and thanked them for the privilege of serving as president. The program was centered on the Club’s theme this year, Celebrating the Past and Cultivating the Future, in anticipation of SCC 50th Anniversary 2011 celebration, She proposed Friendship, Fun, Fulﬁllment, Serving, Caring, and Commitment as the Club’s six key guiding words for membership involvement. She further stated that through teamwork and collaboration, we can get the job done to do service for the community, and through our accomplishments, we can demonstrate the “power of women.” Past Presidents of the Club being honored were the following: Janice Bassett, Dolores Berens, Rosie Clifton, Ann Johnson, Jean Rideout, Fritzi Silcott, Winnifred Upchurch and Angela Wallace. Each presented to the audience, a historical review of the contributions the SCC Woman’s Club has made to the community, and the most signiﬁcant accomplishments made during their term of ofﬁce. Invited distinguished guests included the following: Cherry Stettin, GFWC Florida District 8 Director and Mary Elizabeth Preston, Past GFWC International President, GFWC Florida Club Presidents and club members from Ruskin, Brooksville, Tampa Lakes and Spring Hill. Kudos need to be extended to the Hospitality Committee whose members again did an outstanding job presenting the food for the occasion. Board Members supplied the ﬁnger sandwiches, which were delicious. There was also a beautiful punch fountain which was a great hit with everyone. For dessert attendees were able to partake of a piece of cake decorated to celebrate the Club’s 48th Anniversary. Everyone enjoyed all that was offered. If you’re already a member of the club, we are pleased... if not consider joining - you’ll be glad you did. Call Nora Nelson 813.318.1255.
NovemberPoem Submissions Adam’s Rib
Helmsman USN “Sailing” Pat and I went sailing… A sunfilled trip on the bay, But soon the wind was active, And the waves began to play. The trust I put in the helmsman Never ceases to bring me joy: For the learned man at the tiller, Is my own dear sailor boy…
We know of course, that only the One, Who did all things well, Could possibly have done, This wondrous work to dispel Man’s loneliness before she came. For woman has facets many, Made to be A true partner for all of Adam’s race. To satisfy much of what he might desire, And indeed to inspire, Passions that flame with fire.
Submitted by Jeanne Marie Sanczel
Women come in sizes many, Short, medium and even tall. Fair of face and fair of form, And even with some hidden charms, That the heart do warm. So Man is ever thankful that one bone, Could give him so much pleasure.
We did the best we could. With eagle eye We watched our children. When things went awry, We got the blame. How they adjudicate! There’ll come a time when they exonerate’ When they are parents, and say with a sigh: “We’re older now.”

Whether it is true or nay, At least the Bible does say, That woman from Adam’s rib was made. When the world can clearly see, That she is such a lovely creature, How can it be? That from only one bone to be so made?
The Wisdom of Experience (A Rondeau) We’re older now. Let us at once deny That we’re no longer full of pep, or spry! Perhaps it’s harder now to concentrate, Perhaps our siren figure shows more weight. Why should our culture young folks glorify? We have been young, we’ve eaten humble pie. The young get older in the by and by. We’re older now.

The News of Kings Point
By Steve Becker GOOD MANAGEMENT PAYS OFF
The question “What can defeat me?” is one declarer should always ask himself at the start of play. He should not dismiss even the remotest possibility of failure without ﬁrst attempting to protect against it. Take this typical case where West leads a spade against three notrump. South wins East’s jack with the king and notes that he has only eight sure tricks -- one spade, two hearts, three diamonds and two clubs. However, he also notes that he may score two additional diamond tricks if the missing diamonds are divided 3-2. There is no good reason to expect a 4-1 or 5-0 diamond
division, and South might therefore feel tempted to follow the usual practice of cashing the ace and then leading a diamond to the king. If he did this, he would eventually ﬁnd himself going down either one or two. Of course, he could ascribe the outcome to bad luck, but actually it would be due to bad management. The proper play at trick two is a low diamond to the king. Once both defenders follow suit, the contract becomes a certainty. Declarer continues with a diamond and, if East produces the eight, ﬁnesses the nine. This assures nine tricks whether the nine wins or loses, since if West is able to win the trick -which means the diamonds have divided 3-2 -- he cannot proﬁtably continue with a spade. If East plays the ten or jack on the diamond lead from dummy, South is all the more pleased. He wins with the queen and is then certain of making ﬁve diamond tricks and at least four notrump, whether or not West follows suit. Declarer is on equally solid ground if it turns out that West has four diamonds. In that case, he can concede a diamond to West to establish his ninth trick. Finally, even if East has all ﬁve diamonds, the initial diamond lead to the king -- on which West would show out -- still permits South to score the crucial ninth trick in diamonds without allowing East to gain the lead. © 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.

• It was French poet, journalist and novelist Anatole France who made the following sage observation: “The law, in its majestic equality, forbids the rich as well as the poor to sleep under bridges, to beg in the streets, and to steal bread.” • Those who study such things claim that baby girls smile more than baby boys. • While in space, astronauts can’t use traditional salt and pepper. If they tried to sprinkle the condiment on food, it would just ﬂoat away, possibly clogging air vents and otherwise wreaking havoc. So some bright person came up with liquid forms of the seasonings. • The English word for the fruit “squash” comes from the language of the Native American Narragansett tribe. It means “something eaten green.” • Wilhelm Rontgen discovered X-rays in 1895, and his work earned him the ﬁrst Nobel Prize in Physics. His work also set off a fad among many women, who refused to undress even behind closed doors. They feared that X-rays could be used to see through walls to spy on intimate moments. • The famed Pony Express didn’t actually use ponies -- just horses.

Week of November 1, 2010 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Deciding to work out that pesky problem (even though you might have been bored, bored, bored with it) should be paying off right about now. Expect to hear some very welcome news very soon. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Unexpected news might cause you to rethink a previous conclusion. Don’t be bullheaded and try to bluff it out. Make the needed change, and then take a bow for your objectivity. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Money-matters should be considered as you continue to work out your holiday plans. This is a good time to scout out discounts before demand for them outstrips their availability. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) A calm period early in the week helps you complete most, if not all, of your unﬁnished tasks. A new project appears by midweek, and this one could carry some big career potential. LEO (July 23 to August 22) Positive results from recent ventures continue to pump up those self-esteem levels, making you Fabulous Felines feel you can tackle any challenge anyone wants to throw at you. VIRGO (August 23 to Sept. 22) Family and friends might feel neglected because of your almost total focus on a project. Try to rework your schedule so you can have time for both your loved ones and your work. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Don’t be surprised if you suddenly hear from someone from your past who wants to contact you about the possibility of renewing a long-dormant (if not dead) relationship. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov.21) This is a good time to check over what went right and what went wrong with recent efforts. This can provide valuable lessons for projects that will be coming up soon. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Dealing with people who feel they’re always right about everything might be a problem for some. But the savvy Archer should be able to deﬂate their oversize egos. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan.19) This week favors a balance between the demands of your work and your need for fun timeouts. Taking breaks helps restore and keep your energy levels high. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) There could be an occasional setback in what you’re working on. But look at them as lessons on how to do better as you move along. More supporters turn up to cheer you on. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Although a more positive aspect inﬂuences this week’s course, you still need to be sure that those who will work with you have no reason to work against you. Good luck. BORN THIS WEEK: You believe in keeping your promises. It’s not always easy to do, but somehow you do it. © 2010 King Features Synd., Inc.
