Potentate’s Message

Hi again. It is October and our temple is revving up for fall activities which are many and important to all. Our restaurant and bar continue to evolve and change with different foods, different attitudes and a new dedication to you, our users and customers. I invite you and your clubs and units to give us a try! Have your meeting here and call ahead for special menus for you and your ladies. I know you will be pleased with the outcome. If not, blame me! Friday night is always a winner but call ahead for reservations. Don’t be left out. Wednesday is Queen of Hearts with a chance to win $$$ and have a good meal along with us. Thursday our great Hillbilly Dinner. All sorts of old favorites and a few new dishes on the side. A great meal and a fun time for only $9. Watch for more info soon. Have you made reservations for the Clubs/Units Christmas Party yet? If not, you will be missing a really good time. The Divan ladies have taken this on as their fall project and they guarantee a great and special night for all. They are throwing in a few wrinkles that will please all who join us. Santa and Mrs. Claus will be in attendance and planning a few different happenings. Our ladies are working to keep the price reasonable and the food great. Dancing, entertainment, fun and games. Not the same old thing! Watch for info soon. Our famous Pancake Breakfast is up and going and doing a great job, but for how long? We need help to keep it going. Do you have a couple of hours once a month? That’s all we ask for, a little help. Please step up and give us a hand or we may well lose a favorite program! Your Divan has stepped up - Potentate Scrib - 7 years of egg scrambling, Chief Rabban Bill server for many years, Assistant Rabban Del for many years as president, High Priest & Prophet Bruce, always there to help, Oriental Guide Gene - 3 years of helping, 2nd Ceremonial Jules and Treasurer Dale. Our ladies are also involved in many ways. We are doing our part, how about giving us a hand? I am going to the Oktoberfest, are you? Put October 9 on your calendar! CR Bill and AR Del have made this their project and promise it will be different and lots of fun. Cheap beer, chili cook-off, great burgers and dogs and a few mystery dishes. We have many other events coming up so check your calendars and join us. I can go on but, it will all be for naught if we don’t have your support. Our temple cannot exist without you supporting it!

Yours in the Faith, Carroll G. Scribner Sahib Potentate 2016

here is always something happening at Sahib. There are challenges on the horizon that will be important to solve and will concern all members. Many things have occurred over the years, as membership has declined, our obligations remained the same or in most cases increased. To meet our monetary obligations, the stage is now set for us to go boldly into the future as our founders did. Not knowing if they would succeed they set goals to reach and did. So now we must do the same, fortunately we still have members that were involved in the beginning that may help us establish a new era, thus keeping Sahib viable in Shrinedom. We have completed projects in our 5-year plan in less than 2 years. Now new ideas and involvement are needed from the clubs, units and members to build on and continue Sahib’s future. You are needed to help in all areas to keep our temple part of the greatest philanthropy on earth, Shriners Hospitals for Children. There are members getting involved to aid Sahib into this new era, won’t you help. Attend the Club and Unit Head Meetings or Stated Meetings where many topics are discussed and learn what is happening. Discuss ideas with a Divan member or contact me. Don’t depend on rumors, there are many, and rumors are just

that, rumors. Your ideas are always welcome and you can always be helpful. A new path in Sahib’s future will be difficult to determine, but it must be developed. With the same moral fiber as our temple’s founders, men of Masonic faith can and will continue the history of a bright star of Shrinedom in Sarasota. Please step forward to help continue the work of the great Shrine Temple known as Sahib Shriners. In learning the position as Recorder at Sahib and solving situations has been stimulating sometimes even frustrating. My learning continues daily and is welcomed as there seems to always be challenges. It is and has been a great honor to be your Recorder since 2014. With humility I wish to announce my intention to continue as Recorder and run for the position for 2017. I wish to thank those that have helped, advised and supported me during the last 3 years. To the best of my ability I will continue to work for Sahib, the nobility and Masonry in general. There are many social activities scheduled in the next few months so keep up with the calendar and enjoy Sahib’s lounge and restaurant. Remember the child within and I will see you around Sahib. 

ell, summer has slipped by and fall is about to fall upon us. My favorite time of the year. The leaves start to change, hopefully the cool weather will start to come back and we welcome our nobles back to Florida for their winter stay. Football is back in full swing. You can enjoy watching some of the games in the Sahib Lounge. We will try to feature a game for Saturdays and a few Buc’s games. We need your help at three events coming up. First, we need nobles and ladies at our Pancake Breakfasts to help cook and clean up, this is a good fundraiser for Sahib, so come out on the first Sunday of the month and lend a hand. Second, October 9 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. for Oktoberfest, which will replace the Fall Picnic. Ask a Divan

member and we will get you set up to volunteer. October 28-29-30 Sahib’s Circus, get with Noble Paul Zeissler. We need your help nobles at these events. Come get involved and show-up to have some fun. Well as I write this I’m getting ready to go on the Potentate’s Cruise through New England. Hope we don’t start another Revolutionary War in Boston. Both Lady Gail and I look forward to the break, because when I get back there will be a lot of work to get ready for next year. So if any clubs or units have something they want on the 2017 calendar please get it to me. I look forward to seeing you soon. Remember to support the Shrine and keep a child in your heart! 

Motor Corps Shrine Club Giles Light (G-man), Secretary, glightfl@yahoo.com

A

s I put the finishing touches on the Motor Corps article for the October “Reporter”, I have one eye on Tropical Storm Hermine. According to weather.com, this tropical storm could become Hurricane Hermine. If it does, it would be the first to hit Florida since Wilma in 2005. So you ask, “what does this have to do with the Motor Corps?” Read on, my fellow nobles and friends. This weather has an effect on those of us who ride on two wheels. Most of us would say we would rather not ride in the rain. So if it rained on Labor Day, it is unlikely the Motor Corps participated in the Pioneer Days Parade in Englewood. If it was sunny and dry, chances were improved for our participation. So, did the Motor Corps participate in the parade? By the time you read this article, the answer will be known. The next parade for the Motor Corps will be during the fall ceremonial. We will participate in the parade of units around Sahib Shriners on Saturday, October 1st. We hope at least one of the new nobles will be riding with us in the future. A third parade this fall is the Sun Fiesta Parade in Venice on October 22nd. It should be a little cooler by then, so the Motor Corps hopes to participate. Some of our members will be dealing with conflicts, so we’ll have to see how things play out. The Motor Corps typically plans a trip to Murphy, North Carolina each fall. This year, however, that trip is up in the air with a lot of other conflicts this fall. Our Masonic Brothers in the Widows Sons Masonic Riders Association

are hosting the big Rendezvous in Sarasota in November and many of our members will be attending those events. The annual fall Spaghetti Dinner prepared by the Motor Corps is just weeks away. This year it will be held on Sunday, November 20th from 3:30-6:30pm. That is just four days before Thanksgiving, so if you don’t want to think about eating turkey and dressing, this could be your chance to enjoy some great Italian food. Tickets will be $10 in advance; $11 at the door; 12 and under are free. Our Spaghetti Dinners include salad, rolls, and wine, and it’s all the spaghetti you can eat. See any Motor Corps member for tickets or check your mailbox a few weeks before. We are currently selling raffle tickets on a $500 gift certificate at Cook’s Sportland in Venice. Raffle tickets are $20 each and only 100 tickets will be sold. Winner can purchase any sporting good items they like. See any Motor Corps member. We have a few birthdays and anniversaries to report in October. Birthdays this month are Lady Terri Pullman on the 3rd, Mick Vorbeck (Alley Cat) on the 13th, Lady Tessa Robbins on the 14th, Don Brown (Honey Bear) on the 26th, Bruce Porter (Wizard) on the 28th, Lady Tracy Iversen (Skippy) on the 29th, and Frank Metheny (Dealer) on the 31st. We have four October anniversaries - Darren (Schmoozer) and Gina Bracken on the 5th, Mike (Biker Mike) and Flo-Ann Weaver on the 10th, Rich (Big Dawg) and Tessa Robbins on the 11th and Hampton Crimi (Monk) and Lady Nicole on the 22nd. 

short time back North Port Shrine Club lost a noble to the Black Camel. He sort of slid away without much notice. A small newspaper obituary, the usual notice in “The Reporter” and that was just about it. This noble was a devoted member of our fraternity and an enthusiastic Shriner. A past president and life member of NPSC he was present everywhere, even after his lady passed on and he moved to assisted living he never missed a meeting, a picnic, etc., you name it, he was there, sometimes dozing a bit but excusable for his age. He penned historical columns for the Sahib “Reporter”, his Masonic knowledge was vast and he shared it. A member of Venice Masonic Lodge No. 301, and a charter member of North Port Masonic Lodge No. 406. A quiet, dignified man, never one to make a fuss but always willing to help if he could. A senior veteran listed in our NPSC Veterans Roster, a B17 pilot who flew his new plane from the United States to England landing just as the war in Europe was ending, perhaps Hitler knew he was coming and figured it was time to quit. This brother is another Masonic candle dimmed and gone out. Gone but never forgotten. Colonel B. John Ross, United States Army Air Corps. For more detailed information on this noble, ask to see the NPSC Veterans Roster. Also entering the unseen Temple, Noble Randy

Anderson, Past President, active in Scottish Rite and Eastern Star and Past Potentate Donald Walentuk. NPSC extends sincere condolences to the families. More Masonic candles no longer lighted. On a lighter note, a “fun night” was held at Visani’s Comedy Dinner Theater sponsored by NPSC and North Port Masonic Lodge No. 406. September 1st saw our President Al Sawdai and Lady Karen joining other Shriners on the Potentate’s Cruise through New England and Canada. The Nova Scotia Philae Shriners met the group in Halifax. Our float participated in the annual Pioneer Days Parade in Englewood on September 5. (Bits and Pieces) Ladies, want to make your expensive handbag last longer? Avoid stains and over-stuffing, it distorts the shape, and never carry loose pens, keep it off the ground, keep it dry and clean it right; “Method Love Wipes” will “brighten dingy leather” so there! (Quotable Notable) Who said: “Spare me the grim litany of the realist. Give me the unrealistic aspirations of the optimist any day”? The usual complimentary breakfast for two for the correct answer. QN answer for September is Clarence Darrow. 

If you’re a noble of the Shrine searching for brotherhood and camaraderie, remember that Sahib Shrine is yours. Find your way and enjoy your membership. Sahib is always in need of assistance with duties, there are many activities to become involved with for your pleasure. Don’t travel alone, bring someone with you to travel the journey crossing the hot sands to the welcoming shade of our goodly temple.

ello again from the official scribe of The Great Sahib Oriental Band. As I have already described in great detail, our successes at the Imperial in Tampa over the fourth of July, it’s time we moved on to the happenings since then. First and foremost, it was decided that we should take a little time off as we didn’t really need to get any better, and we had been practicing hard going into the competitions. So, we took July and August off and the next parade wasn’t until Labor Day on the 5th of September down in Englewood. As we all know (pretty much) what we are doing now, we figured that we didn’t really need to practice as much; it would come back to us when needed. Well, we could have used a little practice

time before the parade as it turned out, but we were still great, if a little worse for wear. Have a feeling we will never, ever, get to take two months off for any reason again. For those of you who don’t get out of the house much, let me suggest that you come down to the temple on any Wednesday, eat a great meal (that’s all there is), and play the Queen of Hearts game which always has a great payout, and like any other gambling method, will get your heart beating steady again. Let me mention once again that we have some jobs for some good men, all you need is the strength to get to Sahib Shriners on Wednesday nights for practices. We’ll teach you. Good health and good luck to you all. 

Gene Marinelli Candidate for High Priest & Prophet

M

y name is Gene Marinelli and I am running for High Priest & Prophet. My wife (Jeanne) and I have been married for 41 plus years. Our son, Michael moved down here ten years ago and has his own place in Bradenton. We have a cute little Maltese that weighs 10 pounds and is full of personality. His name is Spencer. I received my Undergraduate Degree from Bowling Green State University in Bowling Green, Ohio in Elementary Education. I received my Master’s Degree from the University of Phoenix and my Doctor of Education Degree from Argosy University. My Masonic history is as follows: I was raised to the sublime degree of Master Mason in 1998 in Cedarville Lodge No. 346 in Cedarville, Ohio. I attended all the exceptional Lodge Leadership Classes the state of Ohio offered. In 2001, I joined Carey B. Fish Lodge and went

through the chairs a second time. I was Worshipful Master of the Lodge in 2006. I am in my second year of teaching Masonic Leadership training for the 27th District as a member of the District Deputy’s Committee. I retired from the US Army in 1998 after 27 years. I entered the Army as a Second Lieutenant and left as a Colonel. My military schooling consisted of Officer Basic, Jump School, Special Warfare School, Officer Advanced School, Command and General Staff College, Observer and Controller School, and The Army War College. I had three tours of command time during my military career at the team level, the Company level and the Group level. My last assignment was Director of Simulations for FORSCOM. I joined Sahib Shrine in May, 2014 and was appointed 1st Ceremonial Master in 2016. I was later appointed Oriental Guide in August, 2016. With my military and Masonic history, I feel that I would be an asset to Sahib Shriners and the principals that it represents. 

Editor’s notes per Shrine bylaws §325.11 Elections Regulations. Candidates may print, publish and circulate their resume. Here are these candidates’ submission

Chevy Lawrence Candidate for Sahib Oriental Guide

I

am announcing the intent to run for election of Oriental Guide for 2017. I have demonstrated leadership, executive ability, business experience and have the ability to give and get cooperation from others. I was raised a Master Mason and a current member in Sarasota Lodge No. 147, a member of the Sahib Shriners since 2015 and the Scottish Rite Valley of Tampa in 2016. I have been active and belong to the Model Ts and Classic Cars. I was appointed by Potentate Carroll G. Scribner to be the 1st Ceremonial Master. I was born and raised in the Panama Canal Zone and moved to the U.S.A. in 1980 and attended Florida International University. I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science and Civil Engineering. Working for the following companies - Wingerter Engineering Lab/Field Engineer from September 1987 to December 1994; Titan America Cement/Chief Engineer Assistant at Ft. Lauderdale, Florida from January 1995 to August 2004; Lehigh Cement/Chief Engineer Department at

Sunrise, Florida from September 2004 to December 2008; International Underground Inc./Project Manager at Panama Canal from January 2009 to December 2011. With these experiences I’ve learned management skills and the ability to get projects completed. As part of the team here at Sahib, I will demonstrate and continue the achievements that Sahib has made in Shrinedom with service to new and present members. I welcome the responsibility and assure you that I have the time and the energy for this position as I am retired. Although young in Masonry, I am looking forward to serving the nobility, the Divan of Sahib Shrine and our service to Shriners Hospitals for Children. I am confident I will prove qualified for and worthy of your trust as a member of the elected Divan. 

Masonic Digest Scottish Rite by Casey A. Fletcher, KCCH, cfletcher@palletone.com

T

hen let us imitate this good man in his virtuous…conduct.” Referring to the life and character of Hiram Abiff, the Master Mason Lecture thus instructs us. Freemasonry offers moral lessons so that we can learn to “…live virtuous and upright lives…” This is, perhaps, the point of our existence and what separates us from any other fraternal, civic or service organization. In the Entered Apprentice Degree, we learn about and examine the four cardinal and three theological virtues. In the 2nd Degree, a plan of education and self-development to inculcate them is offered. The Fellow Craft lecture implicitly assumes that virtue can be both learned and taught and we seem to take for granted that it can be learned and taught without much thought. The Socratic dialogue Protagoras examines the question “can virtue be taught?” The dialogue between Socrates (469-369 BCE) and Protagoras (490-429 BCE), which is often humorous, begins with a simple definition that virtue is “moral excellence” and proceeds to consider the parameters and conditions under which it might be both taught and learned. Such a pursuit is differentiated from those into medicine, mathematics and science. In each of these disciplines, one need only find a learned professor in the specific field. But where does one find a teacher or school for developing virtue and moral excellence? Socrates notes that there is something here that defies academic studies, scholarly exercises and professorial lectures. In the exchanges with Protagoras, Socrates explores some key ideas about virtue that seem to have found their way into Freemasonry. First, the actions of a virtuous person seem to be guided by some principles or precepts that are both universally applicable and unified. Freemasonry identifies many universal precepts, among them brotherly love, relief, truth and friendship; a belief in Deity. Such principles are unified in that they describe a quality of a person in almost every context, not just occasionally. We don’t think of a person being virtuous only in the morning hours. Moral excellence should describe a Mason continuously, not just inside the Lodge. Second, the practice of virtue presupposes knowledge and education. Courage, for example, cannot be demonstrated by one who is ignorant

of risks and dangers. Whether to dispense justice or mercy requires full knowledge of facts and circumstances. Hence, the Winding Stair lecture sends us on a life time journey of observation, learning and contemplation. Third, Socrates asserts, one’s soul must be prepared and of the right disposition to receive and examine both the universal principles and to acquire and absorb knowledge. In this sense, a “student” must have a proper background and propensity to accept instruction. To pursue virtue and moral excellence, one must be both receptive to and prepared for growth, much as an Entered Apprentice makes his decision to leave the west and travel east. In the end, Socrates concludes that for virtue to be teachable (and learnable), a foundation of universal principles, knowledge and personal receptivity must be present. Protagoras, like most philosophical writings, contains some pretty heavy stuff. (Nobody said these virtue and mortal excellence things would be easy.) Our ancient brethren were well-acquainted with many philosophical treatises and included their ideas when establishing our Fraternity and developing our Degree work. Can virtue be taught? Can we learn to live virtuous and upright lives; achieve some semblance of moral excellence? Freemasonry thinks so – it is what we came here to do. The Scottish Rite’s study of the virtues continues on October 29th and November 5th. Petitions are available at http://tampascottishrite. org. The Degree schedule is posted on the website. Notably, the 16th Degree, Prince of Jerusalem will be conferred for the first time in about ten years – a must see for existing members. The Valley of Tampa regularly meets at its Center in Tampa on the 2nd Monday of each month. Dinner is served at 5:45 p.m. and the regular meeting starts at 7:30 p.m. Our October 10th meeting is the annual celebration of the Feast of Tishri and is an open meeting. Casey Fletcher is Past Master of Tuscan Lodge No. 6 in Bartow, Florida. He observes that Freemasonry may be one of the few, if only, institutions in our society where a man may go to reflect upon and consider issues of philosophy and virtue. He finds this both gratifying and worrisome. 

SAHIB SHRINERS

For several years, Sahib Shriners had what was referred to as an “Angel Fund’ to assist nobles who were unable to pay their dues because of health, financial or age related issues. The “Angel Fund” remitted the necessary funds to keep them as current members, and to avoid suspension due to non-payment of Shrine dues. This fund has been fully exhausted and there is no place in our budget to replenish the fund. This is where you can lend a helping hand to a fellow Shrine Mason, if he is in good standing within his Blue Lodge. For your contribution of $20, you can keep one delinquent member from being removed from our membership rolls for another year pending his status as a Master Mason. You can personally select a member from the current delinquent list, or we will do it for you. Please remember these nobles in need of a helping hand. Stop by the office and be responsible for keeping a fellow Shriner on the active list. 

L

adies we are now saying goodbye to summer and ready for fall. We want to thank Nobles Ron Conner, Fred Ellis and Lady Jackie Conner for being our drivers for the delivery of the toys to the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Tampa. We had several first-timers to go and boy did they have a good time. We had two Clowns that went also. They had a great time passing out toys to the children. A visit to the hospital, makes it all come to home, when you get to interact with the children. They truly do know now why we work so hard for our Shriners Hospitals, and their special needs projects. I will be starting up my special project “Luggage for Kids.” I will take any piece, small, large, slightly worn or torn, all sizes including makeup cases. I will then tidy them up and take

them to the Foster Care Centers, alternating with each of the 3 counties. These kids are using grocery bags, boxes, etc. to move their few belongings to their next home. This is just one more way we can as a group reach out to help our future children and community. Call me at (423) 240-7196 or email me at peggyspegg@gmail.com to make arrangements for pickup. Our officers are very busy planning for the Grand’s visit, our Fashion Show and of course our Christmas Party. Ladies, if you are not yet a member, please see any member and see how much fun we have. The Sahib Fall Ceremonial, Ladies’ Luncheon, was great and we got to meet and greet the new candidates’ wives. Good fellowship, we need more of it. 

Nyla Temple No. 152 by Deanie Jacobi, Queen, hljcj97@aol.com

S

ummer is over and Nyla 152, Daughters of the Nile, is back in full swing. Our first Session of the fall was September 1, 2016 at Scottish Rite. Our Princess Tirzah (2nd Vice President) did an excellent job running the Session, due to the absence of Queen Deanie and Princess Royal (Vice President) Carol Vos. Thanks Sandra for a job well done. Our Fundraising Committee is busy deciding

what we will do sometime this fall, which will be open to the public. More to follow on this. Supreme Queen Cathy Carol Rose will be here on January 22, 2017 and we will be having a dinner at Sahib Shriners that night. This also will be open to the public, so everyone make plans to come and give her a real Sarasota welcome. 

Shriners Hospitals for Children Collection Boxes What are they? A plastic cube with a slot in the top. What are the boxes for? To help collect donations, money for our Shriners Hospitals for Children to help relieve the pressure from the Hospital Days Fund Drive. Where are the boxes to be? In any store or business, preferably near a cash register. Within eyesight of customers making it easy for them to put their change in the box. When are the boxes to be used? All year round, so our friends can donate small amounts of cash at any time. As most of you know, many businesses have some kind of collection boxes on their counters, so why not one of ours? Call the Sahib Office at 366-4449 if you can arrange a placement.

If you’re a noble of the Shrine searching for brotherhood and camaraderie, remember that Sahib Shrine is yours. Find your way and enjoy your

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on PULL TABS

with you to travel the journey crossing

1. Why not collect the whole can? Collecting complete cans would require a great deal more storage space. You should go ahead and recycle the rest of the can in the normal way, in the dumpster behind Sahib. 2. How many tabs in a pound? 1,267. 3. How many tabs will a gallon milk jug hold? About 5 pounds worth. 4. How does it work and where does the money go? The tabs are delivered to the Sahib office (or almost any Sahib club/unit location) and then taken to the recycling center. The money netted from recycling goes directly into the “Wheel Chair Repair Fund” at the Tampa Shriners Hospital for Children.
