As I write this, it is just after Memorial Day and FCB has had two bad things happen in the last couple of weeks. First, Debbie Grubb could no longer be President. Some of you who are on the periphery of FCB may not know just how much Debbie has done for this organization and for ACB as well. She is currently, for example, working with others to produce a new Pedestrian Safety Handbook for ACB that, from all I have heard, will be the definitive reference on the subject when it comes out. She has devoted an immense amount of time to trying to get the Governor to veto House Bill 131. It will extend our use of inappropriate machinery for voting through 2016 because, I am sorry to say, he did not veto the bill.
These are just two examples from a long list I could have compiled. She did all of this while her husband is not in the best of health. Both of them have been required to travel at least twice a month to a specialized center that is many miles from where they live in Bradenton. FCB is truly fortunate to have had Debbie as our President and I am very lucky that she is on our Executive Committee as Immediate Past President. I will make good use of her talents.
While we did not win on House Bill 131, that is the second bad thing that happened, we fought hard and we can raise the issue again next year. Indeed, one of the decisions that were made at our convention was to send our legislative proposals from last year to other organizations of and for the blind with the hope that we can work together to develop a joint legislative agenda. The times we live in are perilous for agencies serving blind people and for those who support what they do. It is crucial that we try to build and maintain consensus among those organizations concerned with people who are blind.
As I once more assume the leadership of FCB, I am somewhat daunted by the challenges that face us. There was a time when having a disability accorded a person at least a hearing from those in authority or in the legislature. Now, it seems to me, disability and suspicion are almost synonyms and there is resentment as often as there is openness. What can we do to turn this attitude around? Where does it come from?
I do not think that it is just people with disabilities that are not being heard. I think that, as times get harder, people who are poor or members of minorities are the first groups to lose support and credibility. We must find ways to “sell” our needs and wants to a society that, for the most part, is not interested in buying.
If we are to do that, we must also know what it is that we want. It isn’t enough for us to say we want jobs and training and equipment. That is a given and is old hat to those with whom we might speak. We must develop a vision of what the future ought to look like for people who are blind and then must make a map of how to get there. It is very easy for organizations like ours to get so caught up in the day-to-day crises that we have to deal with that we lose sight of long-range goals and the larger picture. I hope that, with the help of my truly stunning Executive Committee, we can begin to go beyond the ordinary to putting together a vision of what blind people need and how we can help them get it. I hope that all of you who are members and friends of FCB will help us to “see” the future. Though it is kind of corny, let me end with the hope that all of us who are blind will help our organization develop a “vision” that is out of sight!!!

You may see me as just a freshman finishing her first year at college, but I am so much more. I had a successful first semester at Lynn University in Boca Raton Florida. The semester was packed with a full schedule of five classes, work and keeping up with organizations on campus.
Working on the campus newspaper, iPulse has had a big impact on my life. I have realized how stressful it can be to work on a paper that prints its paper everyday. The first semester, I worked as the Web Editor, which meant I prepared the finalized articles and pictures for the web. Once I received the final email with the ready product, I did a double check and would do a final preparation before submitting it for the website. I would work about 2 and a half hours a day on this in order for the paper to succeed on the web.
At the beginning of the second semester, I was appointed to two editorial positions instead of one. My professor wanted me to move up, as I want to be a journalist as my profession. I was now a Copy Editor as well as the Web Editor. In addition to doing the website, I was now reading through fellow students’ articles and correcting them. This has given me more experience for my major.
With class and working on the newspaper, you may think I wouldn't have time to do anything fun, but you're wrong. I work 4 days a week in the school library at the circulation desk. I am also involved with Knights In the Community, an organization on campus that does community service on campus and around in Boca Raton. I worked with several members in organizing help for the Tri-County Humane Society, walk for cancer and KIC in the Cafe, a day where we would serve the food.
All this in mind, I decided to try, with my roommate, to do a radio show (during the 2nd semester) once a week for two hours. We work at the radio station my school has on campus. Doing this gives me the experience, if I ever want to get an internship at a radio station, I may have the opportunity and advantage for that chance of getting it.
And, with all of this going on last semester, I still was able to pull off a 3.8 GPA, which earned me a spot on the Dean's List. I am currently waiting to hear if I made it into an academic program that would allow me to graduate in 3 years instead of 4. I would have to take 6 classes instead of 5 and take 3 courses during the Summer in order to work in this program. I think the program would be amazing to get into and would move me further in life.

Many factors have shaped my personality to identify me as who I am today. Today, I am an individual who enjoys working with animals, as demonstrated by many hours spent volunteering at the local Humane Society. I am a martial artist, having taken Tae Kwon Do since the age of 5, allowing me to excel to the rank of third degree black belt. I have several disabilities, which have forced me to have to work harder than most people for what I want/need. I enjoy promoting my overall good health, taking part in activities such as working out, running, bike riding, and frequently using a Jack Lalaine Power Juicer. I am an individual who has set realistic goals for myself, with a strong desire to attend Florida Gulf Coast University and major in physical therapy.
Every community needs volunteers to function properly, and I am pleased to say that I contribute to my community. Nearly every Sunday, I volunteer at the local Humane Society, taking part in both cat care and dog walking. Both of these activities involve working with beaten, abused, neglected, homeless, and unwanted animals and providing care until they are suitable for adoption. Also, much of my time has been spent volunteering at the Tae Kwon Do academy that I attend. I assist my instructor in conducting his elementary after school program, aiding the children in completing their homework then proceeding to teach them the art of Tae Kwon Do. I have also contributed several hours of my time volunteering at the Holy Redeemer Catholic Church and the American Red Cross.
Tae Kwon Do has been a major part of my life since the age of 5. In my early childhood, like most boys, I experimented with many sports, like basketball, baseball, soccer, etc. None of these sports appealed to me, but when I enrolled in Tae Kwon Do, it didn’t take long for me to realize that this would be my passion, the sport that I would excel in. The 12 years which I have spent practicing Tae Kwon Do have taught me exceptional discipline and has taught me to treat everyone with proper respect. Tae Kwon Do has shaped who I am, and if not for Tae Kwon Do, I don’t know who I would be today.
Since the age of 5, I have had a rare disease known as Wolfram Syndrome, a rare disease affecting a mere 1 in every 700,000 individuals. The effects of the disease are type 1 diabetes, high frequency hearing loss, color blindness, and optic atrophy. I wear hearing aides to account for the hearing loss, and an insulin pump to regulate my diabetes. Due to the optic atrophy, I am legally blind with no means of correction. Because of it, I have requested academic accommodations to succeed in school. Through extreme effort and dedication however, I have managed to succeed, maintaining a 3.3 GPA.
Despite my disabilities, I enjoy taking part in healthy activities. I attend Tae Kwon Do at least twice a week. Aside from that, I also enjoy working out, jogging, bicycle riding, and many other physical activities. Quite possibly my most unique activity is the 3 to 4 days each week that I use my Jack Lalaine Power Juicer, juicing things like apples, pears, kiwis, carrots, cucumbers, and many others.
I have always taken honors classes in high school. I spent 2 semesters as a teacher’s aide in the school clinic, and I enrolled in medical skills and psychology as academic electives. I am currently taking dual enrollment classes to get a head start in college. I have been accepted to Florida Gulf Coast University, and I plan to continue my success there. I intend to major in physical therapy. This challenging and costly degree will require 6 years of study, but through good study habits and careful time management, and financial aide to help pay for the many costs associated with college, this goal will be reached.
A combination of time spent volunteering in my community; martial arts, healthy habits, and realistic life planning have shaped my character. I am unique in a positive way, and proud of it. All I can do is continue being who I am and hope it gets me where I want to go in life.

I hope all the faithful readers of the WCB will accept my apology for there being no spotlight article in this edition. I promise it will be worth waiting for. Between serious illness in her immediate family, Florida Council of the Blind's convention and Florida School Alumni's get-together, my victim and I just couldn't make the time for our interview and the writing of her article. How about I give you a couple of little hints? Her initials are DCG and she is mentioned in several places within the pages of this edition of the WCB. Have you figured it out yet? Well, please stay tuned and you won't be disappointed. Until next time, "stay aware and take good care," Sila

This really isn’t a poem in the strictest sense. However, I believe that the message here is a reminder that we all need from time to time. The brief article below appeared in my inbox one morning from a very dear friend, and spoke volumes to me; and the timing could not have been better. She had no idea how much I needed that particular message on that particular day. Thanks, Sheila for being a good friend, even at those times when you don’t realize what a friend you are.
"The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." - Proverbs 18:21
Words have the power to motivate or destroy, energize or deflate, inspire or create despair. Many successful executives can remember the time their father failed to give affirmation to them as a child. The result was either overachievement to prove his worth, or underachievement to prove he was right.
Many a wife has lost her ability to love because of a critical husband. Many a husband has left a marriage because of words of disrespect and ungratefulness. Stories abound regarding the power of words. There are just as many stories of those who have been encouraged, challenged, and comforted with words that made a difference in their lives.
Jesus knew the power of words. He used parables to convey His principles of the Kingdom of God. He used words of forgiveness and mercy. He used words to challenge. He used words to inspire His disciples to miraculous faith.
Do your words give life? Do they inspire and challenge others to greatness? Who does God want you to encourage through your words today? Affirm someone close to you today.

Where to begin? Well I got a call from Rita from Southeastern Guide Dogs to let me know that they had a spot open on the 29th of March. I said that I would be there. Little did I know that 26 days later I would be coming home with a beautiful Goldadore named Sarge
The first day, I met my classmates and staff and, of course, the trainers. They explained what we could expect. They said we would get our dogs on Tuesday afternoon. We all wondered what kind of dog we would get. That morning we were told our dog’s name. We all were very excited! We went to our rooms to wait. There was a knock at my door, and in came a yellow Goldadore. It was love at first sight! I called him and he came over very slowly. I put my hand on his head and he laid his head on my knee. It was true love.
On day two, the work began in earnest. It started by learning how to put on his harness. It took a few tries but I finally got the hang of it. We had lecturers and obedience training. For our first trip, we walked around the parking lot. The trainer held the leash and I held the harness. It felt good! I do use a quad cane for support but I was walking. A few days later I was using the leash and harness together, wow. But, the best was yet to come. The walks in Bradenton were exciting and scary all at the same time. We did fine with the traffic checks to see if your dog will stop. Then came the night walk. Oh boy, a lot more scary but we did that too. Then the fun stuff! We walked to the Bradenton Mall and had lunch. Then came another big test - Tampa. I must say I was very nervous. I had not crossed any major streets with traffic lights in some time. But my trainer said that she was with me and she knew that I would do fine. It was very exciting. Each of these successes marked one step closer to my goal of independence.
Every night, my classmates and I would go over our day. If one of us had a problem, we would be there for them to lend support and encouragement. Finally, the big day came – graduation. It was a very emotional time for everyone, guests included. We all said something to show how grateful we were to have this opportunity to be a part of something to give us confidence and our freedom to go out in the world again.

Our chapter is small but we are into lots of stuff.
Our April meeting was spent discussing a range of concerns and new stuff. A member brought a Humanware Apex That folks got to play with. We talked about the New Bookport Plus and got a chance to play with one of those. We discussed the new paratransit contract, plans for the summer, the upcoming conventions, and officer positions, as we knew them at State.
During the first week in May, many of us got together for a wine tasting and meal at one of our city’s premiere Italian restaurants. The wine and food were good and the fellowship was even better.
At our May meeting, we invited the head of the Dade County paratransit system to talk with us about the current state of the paratransit system and what the new contract might hold for us. We went over elections and resolutions that were passed at State and urged members to continue to bombard Governor Crist’s office with demands that he veto House Bill 131, a vain effort as it turns out.
On Sunday, we are taking a trip to Key West. We are using it as sort of a recruiting trip. Many of the people going are not members and we are hoping to persuade them to join. It should be a fun, if long day. I will report to you about the trip in the next WCB, if I ever get back from Key West!

Sarasota Chapter has been very busy this year. We continue the Chapter’s program of very interesting speakers. Because transportation continues to be a major concern for members, we invited the Director of SCAT Plus (paratransit) operations for Sarasota County. At the same meeting, we heard from a senior transportation planner with the transit agency. The Sarasota Chapter continues advocating for improvements in both paratransit and transit services in our area. Of primary interest is intercounty service between Sarasota and Manatee Counties. The Chapter has several members who reside in Manatee County.
Another interesting speaker was Craig Kiser, who plans to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro in August. Craig told us about his previous climb and what he will do differently this time. He also spoke about the Division of Blind Services Foundation.
Once each month, members gather together at a Meet ‘n Eat. The Meet ‘n Eat is popular because we can visit a local restaurant to eat and just enjoy each other’s company.
The highlight of our year was the presentation of scholarship awards to two deserving students. The Chapter has funded a scholarship program for the past three years. This year’s recipients were Lauren Elizabeth Horne of Bradenton and Reagan Reichert of Sarasota. Lauren graduated in May and Reagan is continuing his studies at Florida State College in Bradenton. Both received $800.00. Barbara Grill coordinated the scholarship program, disseminating and gathering scholarship applications. Marge Tomasik was instrumental in planning the award ceremony for each recipient. Marge prepared a certificate and folder of information that was presented during the ceremony. The two winners received a one-year Chapter membership.
Looking ahead to October, we plan to observe White Cane Safety Day. But, in the meanwhile, we are enjoying the beautiful Florida summer and hope that the oil spill does not affect our wonderful beaches.

Barbara Quinn On Nutrition
The following was written by Rochelle Werner, a senior at Monterey High school in the Monterey Academy of Oceanographic Sciences (MAOS) program. Rochelle plans to study nutrition sciences in college.
Would you mind taking some of these tomatoes?" a neighbor asked me at a picnic. "I already have too many at home and then some more that need to be picked." I looked at the platter of tomatoes that was now half gone. I already had a couple at home, but these tomatoes were good-sized, deep-red and homegrown. Needless to say, the temptation was too great. I smiled sweetly and said, "Thank you! These look really delicious." After all, that's what good neighbors do - eat each other's food and offer compliments.
But, to no surprise, tomatoes do more than just wake up the tastebuds or fill the stomach; tomatoes contain substances that may protect the body from ultra-violet (UV) light damage. Excess sun exposure increases the risk of developing skin cancer. About 1 million people are diagnosed with skin cancer each year. And the Centers for Disease Control estimates that one in five Americans will be diagnosed with skin cancer in their lifetime.
While humans have few natural defenses against the sun's harmful rays, plants provide their own protection from the sun. The plant cell called a chloroplast specializes in capturing the sun's energy and converting it into sugar, while limiting exposure to harmful rays. Carotenoids - antioxidant substances that occur naturally in plants - absorb excessive light that could damage the chloroplast, especially when the light reacts with oxygen. This process can also produce reactive substances called free radicals that damage normal, healthy cells.
Fortunately, antioxidants in plant cells stabilize these free radicals. Plants have many different types of antioxidants, including lycopene, the chemical that gives tomatoes its red color.
In humans, free radicals are produced every day as we live and breathe. Sun exposure can produce free radicals, as can smoking and pollution. Besides damage to our skin, these unstable oxygen molecules in the body are associated with various health defects such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease and cataracts. Fortunately we can obtain antioxidants from foods in our diet. Tomatoes and other brightly-colored fruits and vegetables are the main sources of these protective substances.
Dermatologists warn that the sun's harmful UV rays can still reach us on cloudy days, so the benefits of consuming antioxidant-rich plant foods like tomatoes provide health benefits year-round. The benefits are not only in whole tomatoes but also in processed tomatoes such as canned tomatoes and tomato paste. In fact, according to the International Journal for Vitamin and Nutrition Research, tomato paste and other processed tomato products may protect human skin even more than fresh, whole tomatoes. Cooking tomatoes breaks down cell walls, which increases the amount of lycopene available to the body.
CREAMY BEAN SOUP WITH FRESH HERBS AND SPINACH
Here is a creamy bean soup without the cream. Yummy and healthy at the same time!! Enjoy.
