Ensuring America’s Financial Stability for
Today and the Next Generation
    Recently Congressman Paul Ryan, Chairman of the House Budget Committee,
submitted a proposal that could put America on a path back to financial stability. His
plan is a first step in a long budget process which will set the nation’s priorities for
Fiscal Year 2012 and beyond. Currently the nation owes a $14.278 trillion debt and

and interest payments on the debt. The remaining $1.3 trillion in federal spending is

    In order to ensure that Medicare and Social Security are solvent and available for
retirees, changes in the administration of these two programs are being considered.
Medicare is currently growing at an unsustainable 7.2% a year, and the Congressional
Budget Office estimates the Trust Fund will run out of money by 2020. Furthermore,                            15 Royal Palm Pointe
we are currently paying out more in Social Security benefits than we collect in taxes                         772-562-5015
for the first time since Social Security was established.
    Under Congressman Ryan’s proposal, no one 55 or older would see any changes
but when those under this age retire, they would receive an annual Medicare pay-
ment and choose from among a number of guaranteed coverage plans just like those
offered to Members of Congress and federal employees. Those with lower-incomes or
who are sick would receive additional assistance through Medicare. I believe Social
Security and Medicare are critically important programs and should be protected for
current retirees and future generations.

freedom, financial responsibility and honest government. For more information,

    Fire Fee: In 2006, prior to my election, the Board of County Commissioners voted

The county split the MSTU tax into two sections and the fire fighting portion became
a non-ad valorem assessment while EMS funding became part of the MSTU tax. This                             sanctuary in a serene waterfront community

    As a follow up to my previous articles on the state of Barefoot Bay, I would like
to comment on the Board of Trustee’s decision in late 2007 to use a management
company to operate our facilities and the choice made in Feb 2008 to use Special
District Services as that company.
    After years of questionable selections of community managers, instability in staff
operations and chaos in our accounting department the Board made a choice to oper-
ate Barefoot Bay using a management company instead of a single manager system.
    This decision along with the hiring of SDS has proven to be one of the most solid
decisions our Board has made. We are operating our community more efficiently
and after a period of adjustment, I feel Barefoot Bay is being operated by the current
                                                                                                           LEON G. NICHOLS, P.A.
manager and staff far better than it has been in the past. While this, of course, does
not mean we are not without problems, developing solutions to those problems has                                     General Practice
been easier than in the past and current management is much more attuned to the
wants and needs of our residents.
    In conclusion, the decision to employ a management company is one that I sup-
port and would not want to see reversed in the near future.

    1. a person who voluntarily offers himself or herself for a service or undertaking.                             772-581-0050
    2. a person who performs a service willingly and without pay.
    3. to offer oneself for some service or undertaking.
    4. to enter service or enlist as a volunteer.
    1. to offer (oneself or one’s services) for some undertaking or purpose.
    The above definitions of volunteer are from an online dictionary,,
and simply state that, in general terms, volunteering is the practice of people working
on behalf of others or a particular cause without payment for their time and services.
Volunteering is generally considered an altruistic activity, intended to promote good
or improve human quality of life.
    Volunteering also takes many forms and is performed by a wide range of people
and I am sure our residents are aware of volunteers for our Armed Forces and Fire                                      (SEE STORAGE OFFICE)
Services, just to name a few, and while we would like to thank these volunteers for
the service they provide, the people I would like to compliment today are Community
Volunteers and specifically Barefoot Bay Community Volunteers.
    Barefoot Bay is a large and diverse community with many events, clubs and activi-              5655 Micco Rd.   (772) 664-7087
ties, most of which are manned by groups of volunteers who freely give their time and
efforts to help make our community a better place to enjoy life. The recreation district
also uses a number of committees, staffed with resident volunteers, to help develop
ideas and projects that will serve and enhance our community for the best interest of
all of our residents.
    These volunteers are the ones I want to thank for their service and for all they do
to help make Barefoot Bay a better place for all of our residents to live. Without these
special volunteers I think our community would lack the special bond that volun-
teerism creates.
    Again, whether you are a volunteer in Barefoot Bay, some where in the state of
Florida or all over this great country of our’s,
    Thank You For What You Do.
    We do appreciate it.
    For questions or comments I can be emailed at
    Thanks for listening.

    On April 9th the Homeowners Association hosted a “Tribute to Elvis”. Dan
Cunningham gave us a wonderful tribute to the King. All those in attendance seemed
to have thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Let us know if you would like us to have Dan
return again next year. Special thanks to the Entertainment Committee for another
great show.
    I would also like to thank the homeowners who have returned their ballots for
the DOR amendments. It is only through the actual participation in the democratic
process that we, as a community, can improve our way of life in Barefoot Bay. Of
the 17 ballot amendments proposed 12 passed and 5 failed. An amendment needed
2,446 yes votes to pass. Ballot questions
1, 13, 14, 15 and 16 failed to achieve the
required 2,446 yes votes.
    The HOA are always looking for vol-
unteers to help out. If you have the will-
ingness and time to assist in any of our
committees, please let one of our Board
members know.
    If you have any questions or concerns,
please feel free to contact me at rkahl2@ or by phone at 772-202-4139.

magnificent spas, hot tubs, massage services and other extra on ship charges than
ever before. Entertainment features are grander too, many as good as you can find
on land.
    So what will all this cost you? Here are some facts. To begin choose the time to
sail, if you sail in the summer months you can easily end up paying double of what
you will be charged in November, their off season. Their goal is to send out each
ship fully loaded. If not they can loose money. Remember it is not just how much
you are paying for the cabin. It is most important both to the cruise line and you to
know much you will spend while aboard the ship. For example, tips on a seven day
cruise will cost you $70. to $100. Cocktails are $7.00 to $9.00 each. A decent wine
bottle is $40.00 and everything has a 15% tip added. Extras can add up quickly. It
is not unusual to spend half again the original cost of the cabin, because you can
only pay for these charges with a credit card and it becomes easy to spend more
than you realize.
    In comparison the Caribbean is covered with “all inclusive” resorts. All inclusive
                                                                                             WOMEN... DON’T LET KNEE PAIN

means just that, all you can eat, all you can drink, a room of your choice and all of the
entertainment presented. Tips are also included. Prices will change when you travel                           Gender

recommend to you a choice between an ocean cruise, one where you will spend 90%
of your time on the ship with just 10% of your time at “ports of call”, in contrast to the                                       Board Certified • Orthopaedic Surgeon

in the right place, at the right time
    Q. How does in-home telemonitoring
    A. A compact monitoring device is set
up in the patient’s home and connected
to a telephone line through a split jack,
meaning normal telephone operation is
not interrupted. Other devices, such as a
blood pressure cuff or scale, are plugged
into the monitor. Patients complete their
daily exam, and the monitor automati-
cally sends all recorded data to the
patient’s telehealth nurse. If any readings
are outside of the range prescribed by the
patient’s physician, the telehealth nurse
will intervene immediately.
    Q. Is the telehealth monitor difficult to
    A. No. The telemonitoring device is
very easy to use. In most cases, patients
use the device once a day, and it typi-
cally takes less than ten minutes to com-
plete. The monitor guides the patient
through the process of the daily exam
step-by-step. Once the device is turned
on, it will begin asking specific health
related questions and guide the patient
through the process of measuring their
weight, taking their blood pressure, etc.
