As Election Approaches, Lines Are Drawn Across SCC
By NOKP Staff The line of cars stretched for over a mile, enthusiastic Democrats and curious undecideds waiting to turn into the parking lot of the Sun City Center Community Hall. They came to hear Senator, Bill Nelson, and Vice President, Joe Biden. But first they had to pass through a gauntlet of folks supporting “the other guy.” These lines stretched along either side of N. Pebble Beach, GOP supporters waving bright signs proclaiming their allegiance to Presidential candidate, Mitt Romney. These lines of cars and sign wavers clearly delineated the lines that have been drawn in our community and our country. Polls consistently show the race for President to be a dead heat, well within the margin for error. But here in Sun City Center, opinions have not historically been so balanced. According to the Hillsborough County Elections office, of the registered voters in the 8 districts that make up Sun City Center, 8,032 are registered
Democratic speakers, including Vice President, Joe Biden, visited SCC in October. Their central message: “We are preserving and strengthening Medicare.”

affiliation” are expected to play a decisive role in the overall outcome. The 4,292 minor party or no party affiliated voters in SCC will likely tip the scales as well. In

The Editor’s Corner
Life, Death & Merry-Go-Rounds
Last week was an interesting. I interviewed Death on a street corner. I experienced how polarized and how united our community could be. I watched my son discover what fun felt like when I was his age, and I had a good news/ bad news conversation with a friend. Death on a street corner
appreciated it. The folks in cars heading to see the Vice President vociferously less so. Death did not respond directly as people leaned out car windows to express how misguided they believed his views to be. Most were polite. Others less so. Death continued to stand, quiet and certain as…well…you know. Let’s spin again
November Poem Submissions Snowbirds Sans License Plates They return to their familiar watery thoroughfare With a quiet increase in activity. Young and old together paint overlapping concentric circles Silently with their movement on its surface. Now ya’ see ‘em; now ya’ don’t… Clothed in seasonal wear, They dart among the lake grasses. Early morning chatter signals The end of their southward trek And awakens me to true autumnal wonder. Suzanne S. Austin-Hill ©2012
As I approached the SCC Community Hall for VP Joe Biden’s grassroots campaign stop last week, I passed scores of Romney supporters along the sidewalk. They were holding signs, waving as passing cars and generally letting their voices be heard. Folks in the cars, stuck in a line at least a mile long, waiting to be allowed into the Community Hall parking lot, responded in kind. While registered voters in 33573 are split nearly 2-to-1 in favor the GOP, the numbers on this day, in this scene, were much more balanced. I wondered about the issues that divided these good people. Folks with friends and families and hopes for this country that extend beyond their own generation. Soon, I would have the opportunity to ask them. But first, I chatted with Death. He stood near the corner of 674 and Pebble Beach, hooded and black, holding a tall plastic scythe. Death told me his name was Dave Brown. He lived in Sun City Center, and this was not the first time he had donned these duds to get his message out. Dave said he had worn the black at least 3 previous times, when issues facing his town were not to his liking. It always got a reaction, but no more so than today. Attached to Dave Brown’s sign, was a message just as stark and visceral as his costume. The other sign wavers visibly
Some years back, “Let’s Twist Again” was a big radio hit. The tune conjured up memories of dances and romances, of hot fun in the summertime. Recently, I covered the Rattlesnake Festival up in San Antonio, FL. The festival was held at the City Park. At the park’s center, we found some of that good, old-fashioned playground equipment that seems to be fast disappearing from our recreational landscapes. My son had never seen a merry-go-round before, much less ridden on one. Most of the other kids at the park were in the same boat. I watched with other amused fathers as those intrepid boys and girls discovered the physics behind this machine and, most importantly, how to make it go FASTER!!! Out of the Spotlight Many of you will miss Brenda Wiseman’s “Spotlight” column in this month’s News of Kings Point. Our fantastic community columnist is taking the month off while undergoing treatment for a medical condition. She is in good spirits and in the best hands, and those docs say prognosis is good. So, we look forward to having Brenda back with us soon. In the meantime, if you have a moment, shoot us an email to wish her luck, get well soon and let her know she is in your prayers. Send those emails to editor@newsofkingspoint. com and we will pass them along to Brenda. Happy November and have a great Thanksgiving!

Kings Point Art League’s “Artist of the Month” for the month of November is Beverley Shackleford.
Beverley lived in Missouri before moving to Sun City Center in 1992. She is married to Ron Shackelford, and has three sons and one grandson. While living in Jefferson City, Missouri, Beverley admired the china painting done by a friend, who convinced her that even though she couldn’t draw a stick figure, she could learn to paint. Beverley began taking lessons from Barbara Rippeto, and continued these lessons for several years, until her retirement in 1992. When looking for a place to retire, the very active china painting and art clubs in Sun City Center were important considerations in choosing Sun City Center as their new home. After moving to Florida, Beverley continued to study china painting under Joanne Stephens, of Tampa, and took several week-long seminars with the renowned porcelain painter, San Do. Beverley is a volunteer on the Emergency Squad, and for several years was on the same team with Diane Simon. Diane, a KPAL Watercolor Instructor, brought her watercolor paints to the squad, and painted anytime she wasn’t on an ambulance run. Beverley became interested in this new media, and when Diane had an opening in her watercolor classes, she decided to give watercolor painting a try. She quickly discovered that this new media was both challenging and fun, and was a big change from painting on porcelain. Watercolor has now become her favorite media. Beverley has been taking lessons from Diane Simon for several years, is still learning new techniques, and looks forward to each class. In addition to painting, Beverley’s hobbies include genealogy, traveling and photography. She has painted several of the scenes that she and Ron have photographed on their trips. Beverley’s wonderful artwork will be on display in the Kings Point Art Studio window in the North Clubhouse from November 3, 2012 until December 1, 2012. Everyone should stop by to admire her display.

Holiday Walk Needs Volunteers
By Phyllis Hodges We’re only four weeks away from the Holiday Walk/ Breakfast on the CA Central Campus on December 1. Is it on your calendar? A $5 breakfast will be served 7 a.m. to noon in the Florida Room. Club rooms open at 9 a.m. and close at noon. The Campus will be rocking with music as the Organ and Keyboard Club members entertain diners in the Florida Room, and a DJ, Joseph La Piana, at the Bandstand sets a lively mood for strolling visitors. Sam and Joanne Sudman who are organizing the event say participating clubs should contact them immediately if they haven’t already to let them know which clubs will be open during the walk. Based on the tremendous turnout for the July 4 breakfast, they are preparing to serve 700 or more breakfasts. That’s a lot of eggs, pancakes, sausage, toast, coffee and orange juice, and they still need breakfast volunteers to make things run smoothly! Serving hundreds of breakfasts takes about 100 volunteers. At press time, only about half that number had stepped forward. If they do not have the requisite number of volunteers by November 9, they will be forced to cancel the breakfast because the food must be ordered weeks in advance. So just what is expected from these 100 volunteers? At the entrance, there are the ticket sellers and greeters. Ticket takers at the food line collect the tickets. In the kitchen, workers crack, mix and scramble eggs, prepare pancake batter and sausage. On the primary food line, pancakes are cooked and served, along with the eggs and sausage. At a secondary food line, servers are toasting bread and serving orange juice. Coffee makers are busily filling carafes for the servers who carry them to the tables. Then there are those who are constantly clearing and resetting tables, replenishing table supplies and emptying trashcans. Runners “go to the store” if supplies run low. When the breakfast is over, a crew swoops in to clean the kitchen and serving lines. Two shifts over the six-hour period means volunteers must work only three hours—6 to 9 a.m.; and 9 a.m. to noon. The cleanup crew begins sometime after 11:00 a.m. “People have been so good about stepping forward that we’re surprised at the slow response,” said Joanne Sudman. “Our committee will breathe a lot easier if people don’t wait until the last minute, to say they will help.” Contact the Sudmans at jsudman@ tampabay.rr.com.

Leblanc Named Parade Grand Marshal
By Phyllis Hodges Dave Birkett, Chairman of the Golf Cart Parade Committee, recently announced that Ann Marie Leblanc will be Grand Marshal for the December 8 parade. “The committee members were unanimous in their desire to honor Ann Marie this way,” he said. “We wanted to recognize the valuable contributions she has made to this community by initiating or chairing major projects. To try to name them all would be futile, but a few in recent years are the 50th Anniversary Celebration, Holiday Walk, FunFest, Fourth of July Breakfast/Fireworks and fundraising for new chairs and tables at Community Hall.” About the committee’s action, Leblanc said, “I am astonished. I thought I was doing things in Sun City Center just for the pleasure it was giving me. This is over the top.” Birkett said that this parade is truly going to be a communitywide effort and President Ed Barnes, SCC Community
The parade starts at 10 a.m. from the Community Association parking lot on N. Pebble Beach Blvd. It will proceed left on La Jolla, right on El Rancho, right on Ojai, and left on Cherry Hills back to the Campus Bandstand.
Association, and President Eileen Peco, Federation of Kings Point, will share a cart in a prominent parade position to signify that unified effort. We are attempting to set a new record for decorated golf carts so every cart counts! The parade’s theme (‘Tis the SeaSun) allows entries to represent a wide range of ideas, some of whom will be vying for part of the $5,000 prize money Minto Communities is donating.

to Obama, Republican-leaning retirement communities such as Sun City Center definitely closed the gap. Both sides look to do so again. In an effort to narrow that margin even further, Democrats brought the big guns to SCC. Senator Bill Nelson, a popular legislator with over 3 decades in government, opened for Mr. Biden and stayed with him on stage, a smiling, friendly face just over his shoulder. But Nelson’s support was not merely his presence. The Senator described the Vice President as an “expert on foreign policy” and “an extraordinarily valuable asset in a world that has so much tumult and change.” Nelson went on to say that government required a “common sense approach.” He accused the GOP of assaulting Medicare, stating, “something had to be done to keep it solvent. Otherwise we would have run out of money in 3 years.” On Social Security, the senator was even more direct. “The Ryan plan wants to privatize Social Security. We do not want to do that. We do not want to take the security out of Social Security.” Then, in a moment pregnant with unintentional irony, Nelson stated that he “regretted that politics had become so partisan” and that “We should respect each other. That’s a characteristic American value.” When Biden took the stage, he
Marilyn Dalby was sympathetic to the Vice President. “I believe he (VP Biden) gave an excellent speech. And it’s difficult to come here and speak.” But, said, Dalby, Biden was on point. “My number one issue is healthcare, and my second issue is women’s rights. The Vice President said the way I believe.” thanked Nelson, calling him “my good friend.” Biden then smiled and said, “And I mean it.” The Vice President described his opponents as “honorable men with fundamentally different values. This is not your father’s GOP. This is not even Mitt’s father’s GOP.” While he opened his remarks by discussing women’s rights and equal pay, the bulk of Biden’s speech was concerned with Medicare and Social Security. He blasted Governor Romney’s plans for Medicare and Paul Ryan’s budget, which Biden said would “cut all entitlements” and “cost seniors thousands.”
Nancy McGinnis was excited about what she heard. “He stuck to the script, and I love that script. I want Roe v. Wade to stand, and I definitely do not want anyone playing any games with Medicare.” In his closing statements the Vice President accused Romney and his running mate, Paul Ryan, of “not giving the American people the credit they deserve.” He added, “America is neither dependent nor in decline. I don’t recognize the country they’re talking about.”
While inside the hall heads nodded and voices were raised in agreement, outside on the sidewalk, sign wavers were not buying it. “We have to do something now to balance the budget,” said one woman who asked not to be named, “Otherwise there won’t be any money for anything.” A friend with her agreed. “They act like we have all this money to pay for anything we want. We don’t. We’re just borrowing it!” As the election on November 6th draws closer, it seems those lines dividing our community are just growing wider. But here’s hoping that, as more than one person at the event put it, “We must remember that, when we wake up on November 7th, we’re still neighbors.” In response, it seems fitting to borrow a line from Biden’s close: “It’s never a good day to bet against the American people.” At least on that, Mr. Vice President, all of us can agree.

The News of Kings Point
German-American Club is a Favorite
Submitted by Marty Gifford Kings Point has been home to me for more than ten years. The weather lends itself to many outdoor activities and there is no end to the clubs and indoor activities where one can be an active participant. Some of the groups that I have enjoyed are Ladies 18 Hole Golf Association at the Kings Point Executive Course and the Ladies 9 Hole Golf Association at Falcon Watch. When possible, the water classes are great and creating with the “Bunka Broads” on Monday morning or Thursday afternoon can be very stimulating. Being the Assistant Chief of Personnel at the Emergency Squad and Secretary on the Board of Directors for several years before becoming a dispatcher has kept me very busy. However, one of my favorite clubs is the German-American Club of Sun City Center. This club is open to all residents of Sun City Center and Kings Point with the dues only $10 per person. You do not need to be of German Heritage to join this fun loving group. All of their meetings are social events: Fasching (German Mardi Gras), Oktoberfest, German Musical Programs and a Christmas Dinner Dance. These social events usually include a dinner and a live band for dancing. If you are a member, you are entitled to reduced admission to the club’s functions.
In addition to the special activities listed, the club supports special interest groups including a mixed choral group, a card playing night, a group organized for interested golfers, as well as a quilting group sewing items for disabled veterans. The German folk dancing group has given my partner, Reinhold Baal, and me many hours of enjoyment and introduced us to many residents whom we consider our good friends. This group had to “call it quits” because of declining health among some of the dancers. We would love to have some new couples decide to help us reinstate this fun activity. Faye Young, 1011 Nicene Ct., has been an active participant in the TOPS organization and through her neighbors was introduced to the German-American Club of SCC. “After attending a few of the club’s dance parties, my husband, Tom, and I decided to become members of the club’s folk dance group. We have enjoyed performing at events with members from both sides and have made many friends through our membership.” Charlotte Kappel has a great love for the German-American and when I asked her about the German-America club, she enthusiastically said, “Do you like to have a fun time with good German food, a great live band and German Gemuetlichkeit?

prostate cancer The government panel says I don’t have to get screened anymore. What’s up with that? A—This is the same government panel that tried to tell women they shouldn’t get mammograms any more. Don’t believe this. The best way to defeat any cancer is by nd‐ ing it early! We say that all men at age 40 should have a prostate exam (including both the PSA blood test and the physical exam/DRE) to es‐ tablish a normal base level. If there is a family history or the man is African American (at much higher risk) annual screening exams should be discussed with your doc‐ tor. Others should have a check every 2‐3 years un�l reaching age 50, when annual prostate exams should be scheduleded. Be safe—get screened! If pros‐ tate cancer is found, most likely it will be early stage, your treatment op�ons are many and your chance for cure is great.

In Search of the Great Pumpkin
By Eddie Dixon I love hunting pumpkins for Halloween almost as much as I love looking for that perfect Christmas tree, which is why a trip up to Ergle Christmas Tree Farm is nearly always on my holiday to-do list. The farm, about 8 miles north of Dade City in that area of Florida that looks suspiciously like Georgia, is a fun holiday tradition and a sweet and juicy spot to visit several other times throughout the year. This year was the first we headed up there in search of the Great Pumpkin. Sure, we could grab one from a roadside stand, but I’ve been a sucker for doing a little bit more work than that ever since the first time I saw “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown.”
While not quite as famous as its Christmas cousin, this Schulzpenned Peanuts adventure still makes me smile. There will always be a part of me who sees myself as Linus in the beginning of that show, heading out to pick that perfect pumpkin, a chill in the air and a smile on my face. But where would we find our pumpkin this year? When my wife suggested Ergle, I knew she was in the mood for a road trip. So, we hopped in the car and pointed it north on I-75. When we arrived at the farm, a little over an hour later, families were milling around, picking out pumpkins and taking turns riding on the farm “train,” a unique little trackless conveyance that offers visitors a tour of the farm. We decided “why not” and actually enjoyed the ride. After the train ride we picked our pumpkin – a nice, sincere-looking one – and got ready to head out. Before going, a friendly guy named Tony Harris, who turned out to be the owner of Ergle Farm, offered to take our picture. We hopped up on the hay and smiled pretty. Depending on how the photo comes out, this may just be the birth of a new holiday tradition. At Christmas time Ergle offers cut your own, precut and potted trees. The Florida trees
you will find here include cedar, sand pine and Carolina sapphire. If you hail from the points north, some of these may not look quite like what you are used to, but they are distinctive and can grow on you. ErglealsobringsinNorthern trees from Michigan and North Carolina and sells them right along with their “cut your own” trees. So, if your idea of a Christmas tree looks more like a Noble Fir or a Blue Spruce, you will not be disappointed. More than just the obvious But “great” pumpkins and terrific trees are not the only reasons to visit Ergle Christmas Tree Farm. During the Christmas season they also offer fresh wreaths and Christmas cactus, those interesting little plants that are rumored to bloom only bloom once a year. And, throughout the year, Ergle is a working farm. They offer strawberries, blackberries and blueberries in season. Those strawberries are grown hydroponically, so you never have to worry about bending over to pick the best. Though, by the time you read this, it will be too late to grab a pumpkin, Christmas season will be just about ready to kick off.
Checking out the train before a ride.
Rows of potted trees.
So, if you are in the mood for a road trip, Ergle Christmas Tree Farm is located at 3325 Treiman Blvd (US 301) in Dade City, FL. For more information, including the best time for you-pick berries, call 352.583.3647. Happy travels, and happy holidays, folks!

Saint Anne Honors Bill Richards, Sr.
Saint Anne Catholic Church in Ruskin recently paid tribute to Bill Richards, Sr. for his more than 20 years of service to the St. Anne Food Pantry. Back in the late 1980s, the pastor at the time, Father Ed Lamp, saw the need for such a facility, and Bill answered the invitation. He took on the responsibility of organizing, coordinating, and supervising the activities necessary to make it a reality. He oversaw its development, food acquisition, funding, stocking, staffing, and distribution of both non-perishable and perishable foods and household staples. Over the years, many members of Saint Anne Parish have volunteered in the Food Pantry, some working 5 days a week. Bill is being recognized for “Outstanding Dedication and Service to the Ruskin Community” through the Saint Anne Food Pantry. He retired from these responsibilities on July 1, 2012. To ensure a smooth transition of leadership, the current pastor, Fr. McEvoy, with his Parish Pastoral Council, appointed a committee comprised of Paul Wiskotoni, Bill Wooley and Dick McCaffery. Bill was also recognized for his help in creating a legacy of faith for the future in helping to renovate the former Parish Center into a facility to instruct the growing parish’s children and adults. May the Lord Jesus recognize you: “I was hungry and you fed me.”
Clyde Annandale Performance at Trinity Baptist Christian dramatist, Clyde Annandale, will present his interpretation of the salty, scarred, very funny, and inspiring fisherman-disciple James, the Son of Thunder during the 10:30 a.m. service at Trinity Baptist Church on Sunday, November 11, 2012. Trinity Baptist Church is located at the corner of Del Webb Blvd., West and Sun City Center Blvd. in Sun City Center (702 Del Webb Blvd., West). During the 6 p.m. evening service, Mr. Annadale will portray Israel’s most famous King, David. For 35 years Clyde Annandale has been on a mission of faith to bring to life the words, stories, and people of the Bible through his one-man dramatic portrayals. Clyde travels full time sharing his portrayals in churches, schools, theaters, conventions and banquets. Clyde lived in Jerusalem for 3 years. He wrote many of his scripts by the shores of the Sea of Galilee and in the cafés in Jerusalem. One of the highlights of those years was Clyde’s portrayal of King David before the Prime Minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the statehood of Israel. Clyde sincerely hopes you are entertained, enlightened, and inspired by the dramatic portrayals. Clyde’s complete support is made up of the donations of those who are touched by his mission. There is no mandatory ticket or charge to attend. An appreciation offering will be received during both presentations. Seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, please call the church office at 813-634-4228.

Contract Bridge Super Crossword
By Steve Becker WHERE THERE’S LIFE, THERE’S HOPE
Assume you’re in four spades and West leads the K-Q and another diamond, which you ruff. There seems to be nothing to the play, but when you cash the ace of spades and East discards a heart, the outlook changes completely. Now you are apparently doomed to fail in a contract that a moment before seemed cold for 10 or 11 tricks. But faint heart ne’er won fair
lady, and it certainly wouldn’t be right to give up just yet. You still have a chance, since it might be possible to arrange a trump endplay against West if he started with exactly the right distribution (4-3-3-3). So you cash the ace of hearts at trick five, cross to dummy with a club, ruff a heart, lead another club to dummy and ruff a second heart. Then, with fingers crossed, you play the ace of clubs, hoping West will follow suit. When he does, you’ve got him. Ten tricks have been played thus far, and your last three cards are the K-10-7 of trumps, while West has the Q-J-8. All you have to do now is to lead a low trump toward dummy’s nine, and West will find he can score only one trump trick rather than the two that seemed so certain at the outset. It is true that West could have held many distributions other than the one he actually had, in which case he would have been able to ruff one of your club leads or overruff one of the heart leads from dummy to avert the endplay. But, even so, you would have been no worse off for having tried to make the contract and failed. © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

Strange But True By Samantha Weaver
•In this season of bitter partisan rivalries, it would be well to remember the following sage observation: “Do not trust to the cheering, for those persons would cheer just as much if you and I were going to be hanged.” The man who first made that observation was Lord Protector of England Oliver Cromwell, considered by some to be a hero of liberty, by others to be a regicidal dictator. He died in 1658, probably from septicemia. He was so reviled that, three years later, he body was exhumed so that he could be posthumously executed, his body thrown into a pit and his head displayed on a pole outside Westminster Hall. •Those who study such things say that if all the gold in the world were combined in one lump, it would result in a cube that measures 20 yards on each side. •If you’re planning a trip to Lima, Peru, you might want to add Puente de Piedra to your sightseeing list. Though the Spanish name means “Bridge of Stone,” the span is popularly known as the Bridge of Eggs. Legend has it that in 1608, the builders the used the whites of 10,000 seabird eggs in the mortar that holds the stones together. •Pumpkins are native to the Americas, not Europe. This is why the original jack-o’-lantern was a turnip. •What do the words “obscene,” “tranquil,” “mediate,” “catastrophe,” “dire,” “critical,” “vast” and “apostrophe” have in common? All of them appeared in print for the first time in the works of William Shakespeare. •If you’re contemplating a move to Corpus Christi, Texas, be sure to keep in mind that in that town, it’s illegal to raise alligators in your home. ••••••••••••••••••• Thought for the Day: “One fool can ask more questions in a minute than 12 wise men can answer in an hour.” -- Vladimir Lenin © 2012 King Features Synd., Inc.

2012, November The News of Kings Point
WEEK OF NOV. 5, 2012 ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Your honesty continues to impress everyone who needs reassurance about a project. But be careful you don’t lose patience with those who are still not ready to act. TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) Pushing others too hard to do things your way could cause resentment and raise more doubts. Instead, take more time to explain why your methods will work. GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Be more considerate of those close to you before making a decision that could have a serious effect on their lives. Explain your intentions and ask for their advice. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) You might have to defend a workplace decision you plan to make. Colleagues might back you up on this, but it’s the facts that will ultimately win the day for you. Good luck. LEO (July 23 to August 22) The Big Cat’s co-workers might not be doing enough to help get that project finished. Your roars might stir things up, but gentle purrrsuasion will prove to be more effective. VIRGO (August 23 to Sept. 22) Someone you care for needs help with a problem. Give it lovingly and without judging the situation. Whatever you feel you should know will be revealed later. LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) While you’re to be admired for how you handled recent workplace problems, be careful not to react the same way to a new situation until all the facts are in. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Rely on your keen instincts as well as the facts at hand when dealing with a troubling situation. Be patient. Take things one step at a time as you work through it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your curiosity leads you to ask questions. However, the answers might not be what you hoped to hear. Don’t reject them without checking them out. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Be careful not to tackle a problem without sufficient facts. Even sure-footed Goats need to know where they’ll land before leaping off a mountain path. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) Appearances can be deceiving. You need to do more investigating before investing your time, let alone your money, in something that might have some hidden flaws. PISCES (February 19 to March 20) Your recent stand on an issue could make you the focus of more attention than you would like. But you’ll regain your privacy, as well as more time with loved ones by week’s end. BORN THIS WEEK: You’re a good friend and a trusted confidante. You would be a wonderful teacher or a respected member of the clergy. © 2012 King Features Syndicate, Inc.
