It's up to federal judge


By Steve Magruder
News-Gazette Staff Writer
A federal judge soon will
decide if he will allow two
added commissioners to a
new Osceola County election
system following a trial ruling
that the current system diluted
Hispanic voting strength.
Attorneys for the county
and the U.S. Department of
Justice agree on a proposed
five single-member district
map for future county elec-
tions but argued over the
county's proposal to add two

PREPARING FOR THE REAL THING


Lynx, Sheriff's Office,

county stage mock disaster


By Brian McBride
News-Gazette Staff Writer
While the mock terrorist
attack on two Lynx buses in
Osceola County Wednesday
was 'just a drill, public safety
officials.understand the threat
is all too real.
Just after 10 a.m. behind
the Publix shopping center
on Vineland Road, the Osce-
ola County Sheriff's Office
SWAT team, dressed in mili--
tary fatigues, detonated sev-
eral flash bombs before
storming one of two Lynx
buses filled with a supposed
terrorist and injured passen-
gers.
The drill scenario had the
terrorist detonate a bomb on
one bus at a Lynx super stop,
where there would be several
buses at one location. The
explosion was scripted to
cause 20 deaths on one bus
and injure another 20 riders
on the second.
The bombed bus lay on iti
side with the front ripped
open. The injured riders -
Osceola County Fire Rescue
firefighters in training were
scattered around the grassy
shoulder or slumped in their
seats. Special make-up was
used to create fake, but real-
istic-looking head wounds.
The goal was to train first
responders to react to such
an event as if it were second
nature, said Fire Rescue
Deputy Chief Tim Debrecht.
"We have such an elevated
terrorist threat that there is a
possibility that this could
occur," Debrecht said.
It .was the first time that
Lynx had participated in such
a drill in Osceola County,
said Lynx spokesman Matt
Friedman. Both buses, which
had been retired, were pur-
posely damaged to simulate
an attack scene. Fog
machines, placed under the
vehicles to simulate smoke


added to the drama. ,
The Federal Transit
Administration funded the
drill through a $25,000 grant
to L-nx.\
As part of his role, the act-
ing terrorist had a note say-
ing !there were Ibombs or
other buses. With that, Lynx
officials in their Orlando
office worked on strategies
on how to handle such a
threat, said Friedman.
"We want our riders to
'know-that Lynx takes this
seriously," Friedman added.
"We look at this from the
proactive standpoint."
Fire Rescue firefighters
and paramedics attended to
the acting injured, who were
written tags explaining their
wounds. Some of the players
cried outfor help.

City Commission expected to vote on allowing B & Bs downtown


By Brian McBride
News-Gazette Staff Writer
To help encourage devel-
opment and renovation of
existing structures in the
downtown Kissimmee area,
city workers will ask the
Kissimmee City Commission
Tuesday to approve a bed and


breakfast overlay district.
Establishing the Communi-
ty Redevelopment Area Bed
and Breakfast Overlay District
would allow bed and break-
fasts in the residential areas of
the CRA district. The commis-
sion already approved the first
reading of an ordinance at a
meeting Tuesday.


"Currently there are no
provisions to allow bed and
breakfasts in the city at all,"
said Douglas Etheredge, city
senior planner.
A specialized district would
not only help promote revital-
ization in the redevelopment
area, it would also support the
enhancement of the historic


character of the area, city offi-
cials said. Visitors who marvel
over historic districts enjoy
staying at bed and breakfast
facilities, said CRA Manager
Gail Hamilton.
"It's just another piece in
the puzzle to make downtown
and the surrounding areas a
better place to live," Hamilton


said.
A bed and breakfast, or
sometimes called a B &B, is a
type of boarding house typi-
cally operating out of a large
single-family residence.

night in private bedrooms and

Candidates in the Kissim-
mee City Commission run-off
election Tuesday will be
tasked with not only beating
their opponents, but also per-
suading the public to get out
and vote again.
Battling what is anticipated
to be a historically low elec-
tion turnout, the four candi-
dates in the two races have
launched mailers and newspa-
per ads at voters. Candidates
are walking Kissimmee,
knocking on doors and press-
ing some flesh to tout their
platforms up until the polls
open.
Up for grabs is commission
seat 4, with Cheryl Grieb and
Jaime Matos competing.
And squaring off for mayor,
or commission seat 5, are Jim
Swan and John Cortes.
"Getting out there, I real-
ized people don't even know
there is an election," Matos
said.
In a December 2004 run-
off election where Commis-
sioners Jerry Gemskie and
Jeanne Van Meter won their
seats, only 1,771 of the
29,143 registered voters
turned out to vote, relpresent-
ing 6 percent of the elec-
torate, according to Osceola
County Supervisor of Elec-
tions Office records.
In two run-offs in St. Cloud
in 1998 and 1996, turnout
was less than 10 percent.
In March of 1998, only
953 ballots were cast from
10,200 registered voters, rep-
resenting 9.3 percent.
And in April of 1996, only
814 ballots were cast from
9,786 registered voters, rep-
resenting an 8.3 percent
turnout.
"The big election is over so
the momentum has lost its
momentum," speculated

turnout is low.

Shipley to chair county board
The Osceola County Commission reorgan-
ized its leadership Monday and elected former
vice chairman Ken Shipley to its top spot.
Shipley, the District 3 commissioner who
served as chairman in 2000 and 2004, was
elected unanimously, and District 5 commis-
sioner Bill Lane was elected vice chairman.
Commissioners held a
brief election before their
regular meeting to vote for a '
new leader after former
chairman Paul Owen's earli-
er request to remove his
name from consideration,
Owen, who had served as
chairman in 2002, 2003
and 2005, said that respon- Ken Shipley
sibilities outside county gov-
ernment would make it difficult for him to
handle the position's added duties and
requirements.
"It has been an absolute honor and pleas-
ure" to serve as vice chairman alongside
Owen, said Shipley.
Elections for the leadership positions are
held yearly.
The chairman, who leads commission meet-
ings, attends luncheons andspecial functions,
among other duties, earns an extra $50 per
month.
According to information on the Osceola
County Web site, Shipley moved to the county
in 1975 as a manager for Sprint, which is now
Embarq, and is the company's public affairs
manager for Orange and Osceola counties.
Shipley and his wife, Sharon, are active
volunteers in the community. They live in'
Kissimmee.
The commissioner serves on the board of
the YMCA, Kissimmee/Osceola Chamber of
- Commerce,. Osceola Regional Area Council,
Metroplan and the Osceola Regional Medical
Center Board of Trustees, among others. He
was honored by the Osceola County Veterans
Council as the 2003 citizen of the year, earned

deputies who were working off-duty detail at
The Loop shopping center at about 9 p.m.
She told the deputies that as she was leaving
the CVS pharmacy, 3250 N. John Young
Parkway, three unknown males tried to take
her purse from under her arm, Sheriff's Office

win outright. But some of the
television media claimed her
the victor, she said, and that's
been. reflected in comments
she's heard on the street.
"That's my greatest chal-
lenge," she said. "Because
people think I already won."
Grieb said she's a candi-

to Gemskie.
"I'm going to give 110 per-

Swan, 59, a public sector

the run-off would be a tough
sell because voters were
turned off by negative ads

The polls open at 7 a.m.

ing of former Osceola County Prop-
erty Appraiser Robert M. Day for
using public workers to do personal
and campaign work for him, points
out that our elected officials work for
us, the taxpayers, and that if they
abuse the public.trust, they will be
punished for it.
It may take a month, it may take
years, but wrongdoing eventually is
reported, often by a whistleblower or
a disgruntled employee.
The former appraiser, besides fac-
ing six months in jail, also faces a loss
of pension benefits, which could run
in the thousands of dollars a month.
Any public official who violates the
public trust deserves to lose some, if
not all, of the state's input into his
retirement. How much Day will lose is
up to state pension officials.
The threat of public embarrass-
ment, going to jail, losing your job
and losing your pension benefits
accrued over decades should have
been enough to keep the property
appraiser from abusing his power
over other public employees. That,
sadly, wasn't the case.


While Day's wrongdoing pales in
comparison to national scandals of
recent years, it points to a situation
where long-term public officials often
become too comfortable in office and
may come to believe they can hide
their misdeeds either by requiring
blind allegiance from employees or by
threatening potential whistleblowers
with dismissal.
Official misconduct is only the
tip of the iceberg when it comes to
questionable behavior by some of
our public officials. Vague state
laws and weak financial disclosure
rules allow conflicts of interest for
many public officials in Florida to
go unreported and unnoticed. And
the state Commission on Ethics,
which is charged with enforcing
violations, has no power to launch
investigations unless somebody
files a complaint. Also, ethics offi-
cials say questionable real estate
dealings make up a substantial por-
tion of those complaints.
Greater scrutiny of campaign con-
tributions and additional donor limits
should be considered.

Letters


Kissimmee
has it all
To the editor:
Kissimmee the beautiful. What a
great place to live. This letter is just a,,
note to express thanks to the many
who work to keep it great.
Thanks to our dedicated people in
our parks department. They keep our
parks and lakefront so well manicured
and clean. And our road and bridge
crews who are always so helpful and
professional.
We have our very own fantastic
home newspaper. And have you.
been to our animal shelter? It's clean,.
pleasant and operated by people who:,
really do care.
We have a great airport, rodeo
grounds, Lake Tohopekaliga. mod-
ern libraries, fire; police and sheriff's
departments. And we have our great
sister city, St. Cloud.
All these folks working in con-
cert, make a great place for all of us.
I know I've not mentioned everyone
or everything but I must stop some-
where.
It would be easy for me to go on
and on bragging about Kissimmee.
Thanks to everyone who make it
great.

Socialist
thieves
To the editor:
I'm not sure what the heading for
this letter should be: the whining
American; one of the few remaining
Americans before the end of the last
free Republic; or just an American
glad he has lived most of his life
before the world's greatest gang of


thieves (Democrats) took control of
his country.
How dare I call socialists thieves?
Well, I do riot; they have put that label
on themselves. Socialism is a policy of
taking from those who have in most
cases and giving it to those who are
lacking in will, brain or ambition. Like.
it or not, to take from one person and
give it to yourself or others is thievery,
in any defining of the word.
One could point out that crime is
out of control in every state or city
controlled by self-named liberals who
are really undercover socialists, even if
!they are'unaware of it.
As to the label "undercover," the


largest "American" socialist party is
said to have agreed to rename,
themselves liberals back in the
1970s, as they realized at, that time
they could never win control of the
country under the name of social-
ism. I wonder how many of those
overpaid movie stars, formerly poor,
now millionaire senators, members
of Congress or their billionaire back-
ers, formerly wrong side of the
tracks now millionaire college pro-
fessors, will give up those billions or
millions when they finally socialize
the country? Or, like in all socialist
countries, we will have a ruling class,
not an elected class.


Working people will soon realize
that after taxes are taken out of their
checks, they would be better off being
on the taking side than working their
butts off. There would not be social-
ism if people had any smarts. In the
dark, you need to bump into the chair
before you know where it is.
Oh, I almost forgot. I tried to
celebrate the last election by hug-
ging a terrorist but could not find
one. Someone said, "Wait a bit,
they will be back when they get
through celebrating their second
victory in 33 years.

rant, 7596 W. U.S. Highway 192, at
about 1:41 a.m. on Nov. 30 where they
met with employees.
They reported that an unknown
black male suspect entered the restau-
rant and demanded that they open the
cash register.
When two employees said they could
not, the suspect hit one worker with a
gun. He then tried to open the register
himself, but fled the restaurant when he
couldn't, Sheriff's Office reports said.
The suspect was described as 5 feet
10 inches tall, 150 pounds with a slim
build and a "lazy eye," reports said. He
was wearing a heavy green jacket with a
hood, blue sweat pants, a pullover shirt
and a bandanna over his face.

Board buys land

for St. Cloud school


By Jill Lederman
News-Gazette Staff Writer
The Osceola County
School Board recently unani-
mously voted to close on prop-
erty for Elementary School M.
The School Board cited
several reasons for buying the
land, which is located near the
intersection of Canoe Creek
and Old Canoe Creek roads.
Among those reasons were
the property's convenient
location, putting almost half of
the school's likely students
within a two-mile walking dis-
tance to the school, its prox-
imity to St. Cloud municipal
water and sewage services,
and because it is located along
an existing road.
The 19.7-acre site will cost
the school district $1.9 mil-
lion; the average of three
appraisals for the property
was nearly $1.75 million.
Covington Estates Limited
Partnership is the seller.
Eric Houston, school dis-
trict assistant superintendent
for maintenance and facilities,
said the purchase price
equates to a little less than
$100,000 per acre, a little
more than the. average of the
appraisals. Houston said there
was a need for the School
Board to come to a consensus
on whether to buy the proper-
ty sooner rather than later.
"If we waited another year
or two to purchase in this
area, I believe the per-acre
cost would have increased sig-


nificantly...if there would be
available land to purchase at
all," said Houston.
In the long run, school offi-
cials said, the amenities avail-
able at this location exceed
those on other available prop-
erty located further south.
Officials also said the site
would save the school district
$500,000 annually in busing
costs and approximately
$100,000 upfront for connec-
tions to water and sewer lines.
School Board Chairman.
Thomas Chalifoux said he
likes the site because the
future school would be within
walking distance for many chil-
dren and that its prime loca-
tion would make it a "good
community school."
Like Chalifoux, School
Board member Jay Wheeler
spoke highly of the prospec-
tive school's location and how
it would help to reduce the
production of vehicle emis-
sions that now are believed to
be contributing to global
warming.
Houston said that projected
or.;'..t~h for the area would
require a school in the vicinity,
perhaps as soon as one to five
years.
Elementary School M
would relieve St. Cloud, Hick-
ory Tree and Michigan Avenue
elementary schools and per-
haps even Harmony's Ele-
mentary School J, which is
being designed for a planned
opening of August 2008.

By Rick Pedone
News-Gazette Staff Writer-T


St. Cloud has dominated
girl's weightlifting in the
county since the sport's
inception four years ago.
The Lady Bulldogs were
fourth at the state meet and
won the Sunshine State
Games championship over
the summer.
St. Cloud
Coach Lonnie Beckel
said over 40 lifters are com-
peting for spots on the
Lady Bulldogs roster.
Returning state champi-
on Sara Hansell, a senior
,wh'o claimed the 154-
pound state crown last
year, leads the solid cast.
Hansell, who also won a
Sunshine State Games indi-
vidual crown last June,
dominated the high school
state meet where she won
by 35 pounds.
"Sara has been working
just as hard as she always
does and she has a great
Chance to do it again," said
Becke.
Two more high school
state qualifiers are back:
senior Shan Shan Chen,
who moves up from 101 to
110 pounds; and senior
Adessa Hubbell, who lifts at
169 pounds.
Sophomore Lauren
Schroeder will be at 119
pounds after winning a
Sunshine Games title in
June, and junior Charlotte
Smith, another. Sunshine
Games winner, will com-
pete at 154.

"We're still going to be

"We've got a lot of fresh-
men out, especially in the
.lower classes, and we've
got to see'how these young
kids come along."
Beckel said the competi-
tion keeps getting better, so
the Lady Bulldogs must
improve to keep up
"Our sectionals are
going to be tough this
year," he said "I've added

'U


a couple of meets outside

Whether we can get as

The Kowboys, on the

team that will be a factor in
the district race.

By Rick Pedone

dog weightlifters picked
up where they left off last

Wednesday at the St.
Cloud weight room.
The Lady Dogs (58)
defeated Harmony (32)
and East Ridge (13).

Lucas (105-105-210) was
the runner-up.
St. Cloud will host Har-
mony and Gateway for a
three-way meet Monday at
3:30 p.m.


By Rick Pedone
News-Gazette Staff Writer
It was a game where
Osceola could play a little
loose and sloppy in the first
quarter and still lead by 11.
Then, in the second quarter
by 21, and finally, at the
end of the game, by an. 83-
45 margin over out-
manned cross town rival
Gateway.
Twelve Kowboys scored,
led by Rodolfo Feliz with
13, Mo Mo Thomas with
12 and Eddie Doris-
mond's 10.
No one was surprised at
the outcome, given that the
Panthers entered the game
minus three starters and
four of their top six players.
Injuries, ineligibilities and
defections have riddled
Gateway's lineup.
"That's just where we
are this year. It's the first
time it's happened to me in
23 years, since 1983, but
that's just the way it is,"
said Panthers Coach Bob
Baker, who has led the
Panthers to three consecu-
tive Orange Belt Confer-
ence championships.
Osceola Coach Red
Johnston, who played
everyone on his bench
throughout the game, said
his team, 4-1, did a good
job of maintaining its inten-
sity during its first 6A Dis-
trict 5 test of the season.
"I thought we played
well," he said. "We shared


the basketball and we got
things going defensively.
The defense is what has got
to be there this season, and
I think the kids are really
buying into it."
Gateway, 0-6, was led
by Ken Martinez with 17.
Giovanni Figueroa, the
only Gateway player with
returning varsity experi-
ence, added 9.
The Panthers continued
to run their offense
throughout: the game' but
they were hopelessly out-
matched by a taller Kow-
boys lineup that boasts
eight seniors.
The Kowboys scored the
first 10 points thanks to a
pair of three's from Feliz
before Gateway closed to
13-7. But, with Kowboys
firing from every direction,
the inevitable rout devel-
oped quickly as OHS
outscored the Panthers 13-
2 to build a 26-9 lead mid-
way through the first half.
Thomas nailed three 3-
pointers early in the third
quarter to put the game
away.
Baker's team will receive
reinforcements after: the
holiday break when sopho-
more Armondo Delacruz
becomes eligible. Three
more injured players may
return by the first of the
year, said Baker. '

es. With everyone we prob-
ably would have won one

Welcome to the Island of Football
Despair.
No, we're not at the Bucs headquar-
ters or in Ann,-Arbor, although there is
despair to burn at both locations.
SWe're referring to the first football-
fiee Saturday in almost four months.
Well, they are giving. Troy Smith the
Heisrnan tonight (yawn) and there are a
couple of Division II playoff games, but
those don't count. If you play a football
game and the BCS computers aren't
keeping track, does it make a sound?
For the record, the Pedone/Jackson
Championship Series Poll, conducted
with the able assistance of our office-
".issue Commodore 64, also came up
with Ohio State and Florida at Nos. 1-2.
The Commodore 64 also spat out
Katherine Harris at No. 3, but we're
ignoring that one.
The Gators partially justified my pre-
season BCS championship prediction:
Auburn over Ohio State'. The theory
then was that any tea!m- good enough to
survive the SEC this'year deserved to
play for the championship. I picked the
wrong SEC predator..
The Big Ten went three deep this
year. Much noise has been made about
how toul-h the Pac-O1 was this season.
Anyone recall Tennessee tap dancing all
over Cal?
The SEC threw this at you: Florida
(12-1), LSU (10-2), Auburn (10-2),
Arkansas (10-3), Tennessee (9-3) and
Georgia (8-4). South Carolina (7-5) was
a couple of blocked kicks a..ay from the
Gators, and even Kentucky (7-5) wasn'tt
its usual doormat.
Wh... the Gators o:.er Michiaan? Sim-
ple. Over the second half of the season,
when e''len team krneo. what it had to do
to reach the championship game, only'
Ohio State and Florida won out.
Louisville, West Virginia, Rutgers,
USC, .Arkansas, LSU, Texas, Notre
Dame and Michigan all held the dice and
threw craps,.
Okay, back to the Commodore to
work on this week's Mighty News-
Gazette Top 13:
No. 1: The San Diego Bolts. No. 2:
The Colts. No. 3: The Buckeyes. No. 4:
UF. No. 5: Hofstra (darn computer.) No.
6: Pee Wee Herman (We might have to
ditch this thing.) No. 7. Rex Grossman (I
swear, we're pulling the plug!) No. 8:
Our Magic. No. 9: Urban. No. 10: Jeff
Garcia. No. 11: Jerry Garcia. No. 12.
Ben & Jerry's. No. 13: Deep Fried
Turkey Ice Cream (That's it, we're
upgrading to the IBM 386 next week!)
On to the paid professionals:
Atlanta (-3) at Tampa Bay: How the
Falcons are favored by only 3 is the mys-
tery only the Commodore 64 can unrav-
el. Falcons by 40.
New England (-3 1/2) at Miami:
Didn't this look like a great one last
summer? Pats by 4.
Indianapolis (-1 1/2) at Jacksonville:
Just imagine if the Colts were playing
with their backup quarterback. Who is
he, anyway? Pee Wee Herman? Jags
by 3 in Upset Special. '
'Baltimore at Kansas City (-3): The
Chefs really need this. Instead, they get
the football equivalent of the Com-
modore 64. Ravens by 6.
N.Y. Giants at' Carolina (off): Two
teams with Super Bowl aspirations and
Poinsettia Bowl records. Giants by 1.
New Orleans at Dallas (-7): Okay, the
Romo-nator has to come in for a
recharge soon, doesn't he? No. Pokes
by 4.
Philadelphia (-1 1/2) at Washington:
The. Eagles and Young Jackson are
reborn! At least for one more week.
Green Birds by 2.
Denver at San Diego. (-7 1/2): The
Commodore says, "Stick with Cutler."
Uh, oh. Bolts by 9.
Young Jackson says: Colts and back-
up QB Captain Kangaroo by 2 and
Chiefs by 3.
Brian 'Big Man" McBride's Super
Sniffer Upset Special: Jags over Colts by
3.
Steven "Scooter" Magruder says: My
Invincible Ravens over Kansas City by
10.
Petey "The Gators Are Going to
'Win" Covino says: "We won."
Last week: Inspiron Eagle (6-2, 95-
54) still leads Commodore Klutz (7-1,
93-56).

Just before this cold front
hit, I had been in a couple of
areas where bass were begin-
ning to make beds for spawn-
ing. I actually. only saw one
bass holding on a bed but saw
quite a few swim off of them.
I'm sure this latest cold front
will cool the water and the
bass will leave the areas for
awhile.
I've been catching a few
bass on plastic worms and on
a Carolina Rig. The ones I've
been catching have been back
in pretty shallow water. I've
also had some success on
Senko-type baits and on soft
jerk baits, such as super
flukes.
I've got to admit it's a
whole lot easier right now to
catch bass on wild shiners
than on artificial baits and
they are bigger fish.
Some nice specs are being
caught and I would think that
this cold spell will fire them up
even more. They've been hit-
ting live minnows out in open
water that is 6 to 8 feet deep.
You can also catch them
along a solid line of hydrilla
with minnows or a small jig.
Blue gills are still hitting
along the Kissimmee grass
and around the reeds on
crickets and live worms.

CH EVRO LET'


AN AMERICAN
ff";VOUITION









Saturday, December 9, 2006, NEWS-GAZETTE, Page C3


This week's best and
worst at the movies
1. The Fountain -
Surreal film is a throwback
to heady films such as
2001: A Space Ody-
ssey. A must if you like a
trippy experience, others
will probably be bored. R.
2. Borat It is still the
funniest movie of the year.
Borat, a film that is an
equal opportunity offender,
holds nothing sacred, as
Borat Sagdiyev (British
comic Sacha Baron Cohen)
goes on a goodwill tour of
America on behalf of his
native Kazakhtan. R.
3. The Queen The
turmoil facing the British
monarchy after the death of
Diana is brilliantly displayed
in this Stephen Frears film.
And Helen Mirren, who
plays Elizabeth II, shows
why she is one of the best
actresses on the planet.
PG-13.
4. The Departed It's
not the best movie of the
year, but this new Martin
Scorsese film at least brings
him back to Goodfellas and
Casino territory. Jack Nichol-
son is a crime boss in Boston,
and Matt Damon is the guy
he raised from boyhood to
infiltrate the police,, depart-
ment. Meanwhile, the cops
have their own guy undercov-
er, played by Leonardo De-
Caprio. Rated R.
5. Babel This nicely
photographed drama about
diverse tales in the U.S.,
Mexico, Morocco and
Japan by director Alejandro
Gonzalez Inarritu (21
Grams) has a lot to say
about humans and their
lack of communication.
Probably too much. With
Brad Pitt and Cate
Blanchette. R.
6. Roving Mars -
Now at the Orlando Sci-
ence Center Cinedome,
Roving Mars is as close as
you can get to the Red
Planet without donning- a.
spacesuit. The big screen
show is made up of the
thousands of images shot
by the twin Mars Rovers
Spirit and Opportunity,
which are still exploring the
planet. Unrated. Suitable
for all audiences.
7. Blood Diamond -
-Message movie about the
diamond industry in Africa
and how smuggled dia-


The Fountain is an other-world experience.


monds help fund various
civil wars on the continent.
Some good action and pho-
tography. Starring Leonar-
do DiCaprio as an ex-mer-
cenary caught up in dia-
mond activities. R.
8. Apocalypto Dark
and violent film directed by
Mel Gibson, set in the
declining days of the Mayan
Empire R
S9. Bobby Interesting
premise' about .life at the
Ambassador' Hotel in Los
Angeles on, 'the day -::f
Robert Kennedy's a-sassirna-
tion. But the story gets
bogged down by too many,
stars and an Airport
approach to filmmaking R
10. For Your Consid-
eration The least
accomplished of the Chris-
topher Guest films (Waiting
for Guffman, Mighty Wind,
Best in Show), this time the
story revolves around the
Oscar buzz generated
around an underserving
indie film.' PG-13
11. Deja Vu Despite
", some -paranta'rrtal stuff,' this
film featuring DEnzel Wash-
.-U'i ton,. iti..o 3ol .[detectut :
mode, is fairly predictable.
PG-13
12. Casino Royale -
A new Bond (Daniel Ciaiog
and a real lan Fleming story'
mean a new beginning foi
one of the most successfill
movie franchises ev.'er It's
still too long, though, and a
minor disappointment PG-

15. Stranger than Fic-
tion -This Twilight Zone-
like movie, with Will Fer-
rell, is stretched way
beyond the limits of those
old half-hour shows. PG-
13.
16. Man of the Year
Robin Williams makes an
unlikely candidate for presi-
dent of the United States,
and more amazingly so,
wins the election. This
comedy-drama has some
definitely good moments,
but tends to loose its credi-
bility when it becomes a
drama piece. PG-13.
17. Flushed Away -
Welcome to Ratropolis.
That's the place where
London rats live in this ani-
mated- film about a pet
mouse that gets flushed
down the toilet. The idea
Isn't bad, but the results are
I pretty predictable and
probably best enjoyed by
only the youngest members
of the family. G
18. Deck the Halls -
Is this the worst holiday film
ever? Quite possibly. With
Matthew Broderick and
Dainy DeVito. PG.

ter. He is taken by the
rebels to work in the dia-
mond fields, and his young
son is stolen to be trained as
a soldier for the rebel cause.
The third part of this tri-
angle is journalist Maddy
Bowen (Jennifer Connelly),
who befriends Archer as she
also tries to extract informa-
tion from him about the
blood diamond trade in
SAfrica.:
It is Vandy who finds and
hides the pink diamond and
sets things in motion as the
rebels and Archer both are
desperate to find the dia-
mond's location.
SThe result is a film that is
.at times very, very good.

Laurel and Hardy,

Stooges and

Abbott and

Costello star
If you need some laughs for
the holidays, then you can't
go wrong with Classic Com-
edy Teams, a new multi-disc
set from Warner Brothers fea-
turing Abbott and Costello,
Laurel and Hardy and The
Three Stooges.
The six films, two from
.,each of the comedy legends,
are almost all from the 1940s,
and reflect the time period,
particularly the Laurel and
Hardy film Air Raid War-
dens, which has the "boys"
living in a small town and set-
ting up one failed business
enterprise after another .until.
the Japanese bomb Pearl
Harbor. They soon become
volunteer air raid wardens and
get involved in a plot to thwart
some German spies.
This film, and Nothing But
Trouble, also included in the
Laurel and Hardy disc find the
duo past their prime, but even
when these guys were not at
their best, they are still amazing-

It's never hard to sympa-
thize with the two bumblers in

they lose their warden posi-

S more laughs as Laurel and
S Hardy are kicked out of one
country after another because
of their cooking skills, but
then find they are in great

good help and even very bad
help is hard to find.
Abbott and Costello made
'better films than Lost in a
Harem and Abbott -and
Costello in Hollywood,
but both films include some
classic bits ("Slowly I turned"
can be found in Lost in a
Harem) and there is even a
guest cameo stint by Lucille
Ball in the Hollywood film.

of a Western.
Both films are a bit heavy on
the music and singing, but if it
gets boring, you can of course
just fast-forward, though some
of the music includes Big Band
leader Jimmy Dorsey and his
Orchestra and is worth a listen.
The weakest part of the set
is The Three Stooges double

Meet the Baron. Meet the
Baron is very early Stooges,
and it is more like a bunch of
stars, plus : The ,Three

Curly star in Meet the
Baron, alohg with Jimmy
Durante. Meet the Baron
also "features Ted Healy, who
got top-billing over the
Stooges back then. The sec-

Moe, Larry and Shemp, who
replaced Curly in the 1950s,
in-a tale about some traveling
.salesmen who get mixed up
with some bad guys out West.
For Three Stooges fans, they
are good additions for collec-
tors, but the classic shorts the
guys made are much more to
the point, without the horse
opera.
The box set is reasonably
priced, it's only $19.87 for all
six films at Amazon.com, and
lists for $28.98. The film
restoration is quite good, cer-
tainly far superior to what you
might find in the discount bin.
Coming out soon on DVD:
The Bundys live on in Mar-
ried...with Children: The
Complete Sixth Season.
The 26-episode three-disc set
features classic episodes such
as Kelly (Christina Applegate)

(Ed O'Neil) getting a job as a


private detective and both Peg
(Katey Sagal) and Marcy
(Amanda Bearse expecting
blessed events. The season cli-

Apocalypto is an ultra-violer
s. mg ultrla0e


irl :
:i: :'~
.;; I . -...:
h
'-''


In a coconut shell: Set
in the declining days of
the Mayan Empire,
a tribesman from a small
forest village is captured
by city-dwelling warriors
for use as an offering to
the gods, and his village
and most of its inhabi-
tants are destroyed. To
return and save his fami-
ly in hiding, and
avoid becoming a sacrifi-
cial victim, the tribesman
must escape from. the
Mayan capitol, somehow.
In telling this harrowing
tale Director Mel Gibson
sacrifices much historical
accuracy for the sake of
savage, breakneck action.
Our flick opens with this
weighty little quote from Will
Durant: "A great civilization
is not conquered from with-
out until it has destroyed
itself 'from within." The
movie then kicks in with the
impalement of a tapir via
spiked trap, and promptly
forgets any higher preten-
sions, or connections to
that initial quote. No matter
what else you may read or
hear, even from Gibson him-
self, this movie serves no
other purpose than to send
you' through a cinematic
gauntlet of primitive ultra-
violence for over two hours -
which it accomplished with a
feral flourish.
The center of the piece is
the hunter Jaguar Paw (Rudy
Ybungblood) who lives an
idyllic existence in his tiny set-
tlement at the fringes of the
Mayan realm. Jaguar Paw is
caring husband to Seven
(Dalia Hernandez) and doting
-father to their adorable little
boy, Turtles Run (Carlos
Emilio Baez) The more the
film aaishies in its depiction of
the village as simple paradise,
and its inhabitants as jo.kiing,
loving and lovable innocents,
the more an audience know-
something absolutely ter-

After the parade, the eC,' ljriiJ
concludes with the big firew 'o.i
show beginning at 8:15 p.m.
SAdmission and parking to the
event is free.
If you are looking for, some-
thing a little more homespun to
do this weekend, head over to
Celebration for the annual holi-.
day home tour.
; For the ninth year, Celebra-
tion homeowners are opening
their homes to Christmas deco-

Apocalypto.
rible will befall them. It does-
n't take long at all.
From out of the dense.
foliage descends the vicious
Imperial warrior Zero. Wolf
(Raoul Trujillo) and his even
nastier second in command
Snake Ink (Rodolfo Palacios).
Their, mercenary warband,
attack the sleeping villagers
and set in motion a complete
massacre. Only a few, includ-
ing Jaguar Paw, are left alive -
tied to poles and hauled back
through the jungle to the
Mayan temple complex at the
heart of the Empire.
The depiction of the great
Mayan city is simply amazing
- loaded with detail to such
an extent that it feels like a
real place. The bizarre over-
load of costumes and archi-
tectural flourishes, along
with the wide array of'-won-
derfully cast inhabitants.
makes the whole experience
a mind-blowing one, appro-
priately enough, as this is
exactly what Jaguar Paw
would be feeling, being a
provincial type. When our
herb is dragged to the great
temple and sees what he is
really there for, we see the
terror and utter disbelief in

tips at the annual holiday home
four.
On Dec. 9 and Dec. 10, tick-
et holders can visit eight differ-
ent homes in the north and
main villages of Celebration.
The event allows onlookers to
tour at will and get exterior
views of fully decorated homes
as well as a peek at the interior
layout of some 'of the most fash-


his eyes.
Heads roll/bounce down
the blood-soaked temple
steps, decapitated bodies
soon to follow. As the King
and his family observe dis-
passionately, four Chacs, or
lower priests, hold down one
blue-painted sacrificial
victim after another. Scream-
ing crowds, exhort the
Nacom, or high priest, as he
performs assembly-line
c-idiect.:..mies, holding up
the-j still bEating hearts of his
victims for all to cheer.. The
scene makes the Cambodian
temple HQ of Colonel Kurtz
at the end of Apocalypse
Now look absolutely invit-
ing.
In reality persons chosen
to be "offerings" died smil-
ing, because that was one of
the sure-fire paths '. to
Mayan Paradise. Jaguar Paw
must not have gotten the
memo because he sure did-
n't look too pleas-ed As
Jaguar Paw is lecd to the top
of the temple, into this wak-
ing nightmare, we see no
way out for him, or any of
his surviving friends.
.Not to spoil too much, let
'us say that cosmic forces


it film

come into play, providing a
temporary reprieve. This
respite quickly passes, and
soon Jaguar Paw and
pals become living targets in
a cruel shooting gallery set
up by Zero Wolf and Co.
Somehow J.P. gets away,
again, and thus ensues one
long foot chase that does not
stop until the end of the pic-
ture. Mel throws everything
he can think of at us, includ-
ing .a myriad of different
types of .death that include
spear piercing, arrow pierc-
ing, stabbings, head bash-
ings by obsidian edged war-
club, viper bite, face-chewirg.
by real jaguar, being struck
repeatedly by poisoned blow
darts, striking one's head on
a rock after fallinqga hundred
feet off a waterfall, etc.
In other words, buckle-up -
this is one violent, violent
foray... no joke. If I'm lyin,'
I'm Mayan. Wonder what old
Walt would have thought
about this Disney release.
