Teachers unhappy with merit pay plan


public hearing Feb. 26. The
School Board previously had
the option to accept the state
plan or adopt its own merit
pay system for the same
amount of money.
The O-STAR Plan is the
first state-funded, perform-
ance-pay plan of its kind in
Florida, which provides a 5
percent bonus this school
year to the annual salaries of
the top 25 percent of high
performing elementary

tors. The teachers' perform-
ance is based on their stu-
dents' scores-on the Florida

At odds over vacation pay
and wage increases, contract
negotiations between the city
of Kissimmee and the Kissim-
mee firefighter union have
stalled.
Local 4208 of the Interna-
tional Association of Firefight-
ers, representing city firefight-
ers, recently declared an
impasse in negotiations, send-
ing the stalemate to a Public
Employee Relations Commis-
sion special master. The spe-


cial master will review both
sides and render a decision,
which is not binding. The
Kissimmee City Commission
will have the final say.
"We've lost from 15 to 20
firefighters in the last three to
four years," said Fire Lt. Jim
Walls, union president.
The main issue is the
amount of vacation pay and
personal days firefighters
receive. According to a vaca-
tion day scale, city firefighters
with five years or less of serv-
ice receive 12 full-day shifts of


24 hours off from work per
year. A firefighter with 20
years and above gets 16 full-
day shifts.
Comparing that to Osceola
County Fire Rescue, firefight-
ers with less than five years
receive 26.6 full-day shifts per
year, while those with 15 years
or more get 29.6, according
to the scale.
Some Kissimmee fire veter-
ans with more than 20 years
have children just starting with
the Osceola County Fire Res-
cue. They get more vacation


days than their elders, Walls
said.
"We have guys that have
been here for 26 years and
only get 16 shifts off," Walls
said.
The union wants to adopt
the same vacation schedule as
Orange County Fire Rescue. A
one-year firefighter there
receives 12 shifts, while a fire-
fighter with more than 15
years receives 23 shifts.
But before city officials
agree to any proposal, they

Ground broken for Southside
Wastewater Treatment Facility


By Council Member Mike Wetzel
While conducting daily business in
St. Cloud and by reading information
found in the local media, I am continu-
ally impressed with the city's availabil-
ity of resources and quality-of-life ini-
tiatives. From our great schools to our
beautiful parks and efficient city ser-
vices, I hope that you are as happy to be,
"St. Cloud Proud" as I am.
On the subject of area services, I
would like to remind you of the excel-
lent healthcare system that is right here
in our own backyard. I hope you will
never have to see our St. Cloud Re-
gional Medical Center up close, but if
you do, top-notch medical care will be


readily available to you. The old saying
about not appreciating something until
you need it the most (or something like
that!) rings true with too many of us.
In addition to providing full-service
acute care, the St. Cloud Regional
Medical Center is equipped to offer a
variety of services. The center recently
purchased a CT scanner that provides
high-resolution images with lower x-ray
doses to the patient. In the fall, a
Wound Care Center is scheduled to
open and is anticipated to receive about
4,000 visits in its first year.
Plans are in place for an ER and op-
erating room expansion that will include
two additional operating rooms as well


as a cardiac cath lab. A 50,000
square foot medical office building
is also in the planning stages. This
infrastructure will support the
health needs of our growing city.
Additionally, the hospital shares
a partnership with Orlando Re-
ber gional Medical Center, allowing
patients to benefit from a multitude
of skilled medical professionals
who.specialize in emergency situa-
tions such as trauma and cardiac
care. Also available right here in
St. Cloud is the Medical Solutions
for Women clinic, a state-of-the-art
facility designed to provide quality
medical care in a comfortable environ-
ment.
As you can see, medical services are
expanding and more and more physi-
cians are calling St. Cloud home. The
city is growing and the hospital is grow-
ing right! along with it.
You can never be too careful when it
comes to your health. An apple a day
can help, but having superior quality"
healthcare readily available is certainly
an advantage of residing in St. Cloud.
Avoid that flu bug the best you can
and have a great month!


The groundbreaking for the expan-
sion of the Southside Wastewater
Treatment Facility located at 5701
Michigan Avenue took place March
1.
The project will include building
new administrative facilities, imple-
menting new process treatment equip-
- ment and providing upgrades to exist-
ing process components.
Operations will be expanded to six
million gallons per day with future
capabilities projected at more than
nine million gallons per day. Current
treatment limits are rated at 1.6 mil-
lion gallons per day.
The completion date is expected to
be 2008 or early 2009.

Access St. Cloud
Hosted by Mayor Donna Hart
This month's Access St. Cloud will
focus on upcoming events and will
feature a number of prominent area
guests,
Presenters include the marketing
director from the Osceola Council on
Aging, the events coordinator from
the Chamber of Commerce and local
citizens who will be talking about up-
coming events that we can all look
forward to right here in St. Cloud.
I hope you will enjoy the show and
I look forward to seeing you at future
city events!

Cyber Spot is first in national broadband ranking


The City of St. Cloud's wireless
Internet service, Cyber Spot, recently
placed first in category rankings of
"Wireless Broadband Overall" and
"Metro Wi-Fi Overall."' Rankings were
released by Novarum, a technology-
based research and consulting organiza-
tion, which conducted an analysis of the
wireless broadband industry throughout
the country.
"This analysis shows that the city is
providing a quality product to its resi-
dents," said Howard DeYoung, the
city's information technology director.
"The product we're providing is an in-
dustry-level, quality product, which
other cities are now beginning to imple-
ment."
St. Cloud's wireless broadband has
been in service for nearly a year since
March 2006 and the system continues
to expand as growth continues through-
out the city. "We are bringing Internet
service to people who may not have had
it before," DeYoung said. "Or there may
be users who have moved away from

paid service to Cyber Spot."
The initiative began as a pilot test
project in June 2004 with service cover-
ing the downtown business district. The
response from local wireless users was
so positive that transmitters were in-
stalled at the lakefront and beyond to
cover the area within St. Cloud city lim-
its. The future promises further utiliza-
tion including video capabilities in po-
lice cars.
"We are very proud to be the Wi-Fi
mesh systems supplier to the City of St.
Cloud," said Ron Sege, CEO of Tropos
Systems, the company that provided the
broadband infrastructure necessary to
deploy Cyber Spot. "The high daily us-
age and fantastic household penetration
rates are testaments to both the value of
the system to citizens and the capacity
and reliability of the technology."
According to DeYoung, usage track-
ing for December 2006 pinpointed 5,173
devices (laptops or other devices with
Wi-Fi capability) that connected to Cy-
ber Spot. Results also showed that 3,100


rnoto ana story oy neatner raynter
gigabytes of data were moved via Cyber
Spot in the same month.
Though citizens are able to use Cy-
ber Spot without service charges, overall
product quality was the determining fac-
tor in the recent survey. "Free was not
what put us at the top of these rank-
ings," DeYoung said. "Our usage level
exceeds that of many larger cities. It
shows the hard work and effort that
were put 'into deploying a solution that
works."

Additionally, he ensures that local

"We will be in a better posi-
tion to address it (vacation pay)
at that time (when the study is
completed)," City Labor Attor-
ney Leonard Carson said.
"Really, it makes more sense
to leave it (contract) open to
discussion."
With regard to pay, fire-
fighters agreed to what all
other employees received, a


7.5 percent increase. But the
increases are incremental dur-
ing the fiscal year. The union
wants it in one lump some.
"Our pay is behind enough
(compared to other agencies),"
Walls said. "We thought 7.5
percent all-in-one was better.
City Manager Mark Durbin,

Rushlow said, a teacher
wrote, "I teach ESE kids, I'm
not going to get merit-pay."
Apryle Jackson, a reading
teacher at Osceola High
School, at the meeting said
she voluntarily teaches lower-
performing students and sees
some of them dealing with
heavy personal burdens dur-
ing FCAT week.
"My eligibility is based on
how well these students do?"
Jackson asked.
In addition to a students'
unpredictability determining a
teacher's bonus, Rushlow said
students are supposed to have
been taught everything they
need to knbw for FCAT in
less than a full year and show
a full year's growth.


Rushlow and a group of
teachers March 20-22 will
lobby state elected officials in
Tallahassee on the O-STAR
Plan.
"Bad legislation gets
passed and shoved down our
throats," she said. "It's some-
one in Tallahassee making
decisions, and they don't
know what's going on in the
district."
Charles Butler, assistant
superintendent for school
services and the district's
chief negotiator, said he
agrees with the teachers asso-
ciation and that if it were up
to him, he would share
money in the plan with all
teachers. He said the 0-
STAR Plan was the state's

requirement and not up to the
.school district.
The district previously
had a performance-pay sys-
tem where all teachers were
eligible, not just the top 25
percent.
He explained that a per-
formance-based pay plan,
whether state- or district-fund-
ed, was required by law. If the
district didn't have a plan in
place by the March deadline,
he said, then $2.1 million in
lottery money for the district
would have been withheld.
Butler also said $2.93 mil-
lion from the state for the
merit pay program would
have been shifted to teachers
and school-based administra-
tors in other districts had the
district not approved it.
He also said if the district-
funded plan replaced 0-
STAR, it would have affected
dollars available for teacher
salaries and likely would have
lowered the district's ranking
as one of the highest paying
in Central Florida. '
The state Commissioner of
Education will have the final
say on the new state-funded
pay plan for this school year.


School Board members
expressed mixed emotions
about the state plan.
Board member David
Stone said, "I don't know the
solution, except it's who we
vote for in Tallahassee, more
so than in Kissimmee.'
"We're going to give you
(teachers) the best pay we
can. We're No. 1 in pay this
year, and I don't want to lose
it."
Board Chairman Thomas
Chalifoux Jr. said that the dis-
trict doesn't have a lot of
options. He requested more
dialogue with teachers and
school administrators on the
issue.
Board member Tom Greer
said he would like to continue
working on making the per-
formance-pay plan more
equitable.
Like Chalifoux, member
John McKay agreed that the
state plan was flawed but said
the School Board had to start
somewhere with a plan or risk
losing millions of dollars.

Homer kicks off
campaign.
Dozens of local Republican
politicians and hundreds of
supporters showed up to the
Florida Cattleman's Associa-
tion Wednesday as Mike Horner
kicked off his campaign for Dis-
trict 79 state '
representa-
tive.
More than
300 people -
signed in and
donated
$30,000 to
the cam-WT -
paigntbring- Mike Horner
ing the cam-
paign account to $120,000.
"I was overwhelmed.by the
great turnout," Horner said.
Horner, president of the
Kissimmee/Osceola Chamber
of Commerce, said he has
* worked to improve local
schools, economic develop-
ment, smart growth and the arts
and would like to bring his "fru-
gal" spending methods to the
state Legislature.
He added that he is the only
candidate to register so far for
the race, but he expects that to
change.
District 79 is one of three
state districts in Osceola County
along with districts 41 and 49.
Represented by Frank
Attkisson, R-St. Cloud, District
79 covers the majority of the
county's unincorporated land as
well as parts of Polk and Okee-
chobee counties.
State representatives hold
two-year terms, and the next
election is set for the fall of


2008.
During the fund-raiser,
Horner asked supporters to
find five people in the district
and ask them to contribute to
the campaign in anticipation

Editorial


No easy solutions


State legislators have proposed
several ideas for property tax
reform in response, to a statewide
uproar about skyrocketing taxes.
Changing the way local government
bodies generate revenue, however,
is1 a thorny task.
One proposal would double the
homestead exemption, a measure
we could not support because of the
severe impact on property tax rev-
enue and the ensuing budget cuts.
Abolishing property taxes alto-
gether on homesteaded properties
and increasing the state sales tax is
not a good alternative either
because it would destabilize revenue
streams, given that sales taxes can
drop during hard economic times.
And a government spending cap
would hamstring high-growth
municipalities and force cuts in
basic services.
School districts are more depend-
ent on property taxes than counties-
and cities, which can levy fees and
assessments, and they should be
exempt from any cuts.
A property tax circuit breaker
could be anr alternative whereby
the state sets a maximum percent-


age of income that an eligible fam-
ily can be expected to pay in prop-
erty taxes. If property taxes
'exceed this limit, the state then
provides a rebate or credit to the
taxpayer. A state income tax also
should be considered.
A county commissioner said that
if the county sees a dramatic drop in
revenue, the first budget cuts Would
be in funding for the YMCA, the
Osceola Council on Aging and
'other societal programs. That would
be unacceptable.
With social service funding cuts,
those who would suffer the most
include low-income individuals and
their families, low-income seniors
and the homeless. These same
groups, who likely would rent or live
on the street, could face higher
sales taxes' and at the same time
would not benefit from any home-
stead property tax exemption.
Officials also have said funding
for Central Florida's commuter rail
transit system might have to be cut
due to shrinking budgets. That
would be unacceptable, too. We've
waited far too long already for
mass transit.


It's time for a serious conversation about long-term care reform


Late last year, AARP released a
survey revealing some alarming news
about how Floridians are planning for
the costs of long-term care.
According to the survey of Florida
residents 45 and older, most of us
guess we're protected against sky-
rocketing costs of long-term care for
older loved ones. And we're guessing
wrong with potentially disastrous
financial results.
The study showed that 5.4 percent
of Floridians believe the federal
Medicare program or private
"Medigap" insurance will cover the"
high- costs of extended nursing-home


care. True, Medicare does cover
skilled nursing care but only for a
period of 20 cJas. including time in a
'hospital. Then you bear the cost at
an average of $6,000 a. month.
That's bad news if you are one of the
60 percent of Americans 65 and
older who, according to government
studies, will someday need long-term
care for at least three months.
With these staggering numbers in
mind, AARP Florida wants to start a
conversation about how a better state
long-term care system one that is
7 more acce4-sible,, undeirstaidable and
affordable might look. With a large

and growing senior population (cur-
rently 2.8 million people 65 or older),
Florida must find better ways to help
families care for frail or sick elders.
Families provide 80 percent of all
elder care in America. The key to bet-
ter long-termcare is to help families
care for loved ones at home and in


their communities. Florida spends
nearly two-thirds of. care dollars on
nursing home costs, well above the-
national average of 53.4 percent.
People want to remain at home as
they age, and family care-giving can
make that possible. However, not
enough families lay plans for aging
care needs until it's too late. And
when a crisis situation occurs, savings
can quickly be drained by high costs.
AARP is working at the federal
and state levels to improve choices
for long-term care services, support
better quality of care .and ,more
options for financing home and


community care, and assist family-
c: aregivers through a caregiver tax
credit. Through these efforts, we,
have the power to solve our long-
term care difficulties.
Florida's frail elders spent a life-;
time working to build our nation:
and our state. Join us as we work to:
provide them with the long-term#
care they've earned.

effort, call the AARP Florida State!

Council on Aging needs community's help to match private grant


I first met Roy along Lakeshore
Drive in St. Cloud in the line-up for
the 2006 Holiday Parade. He
approached the Osceola Council on
Aging bus and introduced himself,
'saying he used to drop his wife off to
play bingo before he went fishing.
Roy explained that he couldn't
reach the parade route on his electric
scooter but lived close enough to
drive to see the floats. I asked if he
wanted to ride with us in the parade.

He hesitated, concerned over what
he'd do with his scooter. That prob-
lem was resolved with the chair lift on
the bus. With the scooter and Roy
aboard, the bus began its two-hour
journey through St. Cloud, dropping
off Roy at his home to end the trip.
Two months later, Roy has
become a regular at the Council's
senior center on Shady Lane and the
St.. Cloud senior center. At 90 years
old, Roy remains independent. He
mourned the passing of his wife,
Eleanor, eight years ago after more
than 59 years of marriage, and his
best friend, Bert, just a few: years
later. With family in Chicago but his
roots in Osceola County, Roy realizes
his life is different now. He owns a
car, but voluntarily limits his driving' to
the pharmacy and the doctor's office.
His electric cart can reach a small
store for his weekly grocery needs.
Roy reconnected with the Council
on Aging at a time critical to both.
Roy depends on the help the Council
provides transporting him to the
Senior Congregate programs, offer-
ing him socialization, nutrition, med-
ical screenings and something else he
thought he'd never do play bingo.
For the Council, it was another way
we attain our mission, enabling peo-
ple to sustain their independence.
Roy's story is a unique yet. com-
mon occurrence at the Council.

medical bus providing services to low
income residents at least 18 years old
without health insurance, family self-
sufficiency programs, intergenera-
tional programs, volunteer manage-
ment and meals delivered to home-
bound and disabled persons. In each
case, the Council responds to com-
munity needs.
No longer limited to serving the
elderly, the Council now helps disad-
vantaged people throughout the
aging spectrum. Last year, more than
38,000 unduplicated Osceola County
residents received services in the var-
ious programs.
A turning. point for the Council
came during the disastrous hurricane
season of 2004. The Council's board
of directors, led by Barney Veal,
promised that community action
would be taken to protect our most
vulnerable residents.
And action they took, launching
the most ambitious project in the
Council's 36-year history. A needs-
driven philosophy fueled the desire to
meet the community crisis. In late
2005, thanks to a generous donation
of land from the Veal family and start-
up, fundingfrom the Osceola County
Board of County Commissioners, the
Council broke ground on the Barney


E. Veal Center for All Generations.
Fifteen months later, the Council: is
on its way to completing the 40,000
square-foot special needs shelter and
headquarters for the Council on
Aging.
By July of 2007, the first phase of
the Veal Center will be completed. A
second phase will be finished later
this year. The new facility is located
on the south side of U.S. Highway
192 between Bill Beck Boulevard and
Simpson Road. '
With a current capacity of only
250 special needs spaces in all of
Osceola County and the growing list
of special needs residents exceeding
800, the timing is urgent. The new
facility will add 1,000 shelter spaces
for special needs clients of any age
who are oxygen-dependent, diabet-
ic, require dialysis or are hearing or
sight impaired.
The shelter can withstand winds
and driving rain of a Category,4 hur-
ricane and is elevated to prevent
flooding. It is also equipped with
three back-up generators powered by
natural gas and diesel. With kitchen
facilities expanded, staff will be able
to prepare and serve 6,000 meals
per day. The meals will serve shelter
clients and staff and those needing to
receive meals in the community.
The Council depends on dona-
tions to continue services. This new
project is challenging our ability to
both pay for this new facility while
continuing delivery of services. The
support of local governments, contri-
butions from individuals and corpo-

No entitlement
To the editor:
Some candidates may believe that
they are entitled to political office
because their name appeared on a
lawsuit. The federal government, not
the individual,, brought the lawsuit.
The individuals .'; named as parties
in the lawsuit, but it was the govern-
ment's case.
The individuals claim they brought
the inequities in the Osceola voting
system to the attention of the feder-
al government. Maybe they did, but
that does not entitle the individuals
to an automatic seat on the Osceola
County Commission.
A good analogy would be if I were


to bring to the attention of govern-
ment officials that there is a problem
with animals running loose in the
county. Does that qualify me to be the
dogcatcher? If I bring to government
officials' attention that there is a traffic
problem in the county, does that qual-
ify me to head the county transporta-
tion department? I think not.
Qualifications and solutions to
existing challenges are the only thing
that should matter in electing a person
to office. If anyone attended the recent
County Commission debate at the
Kissimmee Civic Center, I believe they
would reach the same conclusion as I.
It was clear that most of the candidates
did not understand the complexities of
local government.


All candidates should campaign
hard and offer solutions they would
implement if elected. The only thing
that the words entitled and elected
have in common is that they both
begin with the same letter.

2006-07 'fiscal year was $55
million.
"It's just hard to imagine
how little the city spent in those
days," City Manager Mark
Durbin said.
DeMond, former owner of
Kent's Vac and Sew shop on
Bass Street, owned a home on
Brack Street before he moved
to McAlpine, near Lake City, in
2003. That Brack Street home
.belonged to former City Com-
missioner Cecil F. Norris, who
served on the commission in
the early 1940s.
DeMond found the records
when he was cleaning out his
attic in the 1970s but feared
city officials then wouldn't keep
them. He trusted they'd be in
good hands now.
"They are a part of history
and they need to be kept," he
said.
According to October 1941
records, the city manager was
J.C. Buckels, who also held the
titles of superintendent of utili-
ties and city clerk.
The city manager back then
earned $1,500 annually.
Durbin's salary in 2006 was
$136,217.
The 1941 police depart-
ment budget, including staff
salaries and equipment, totaled
just $6,107. Last year, it was
$18.6 million.
The fire department budget


in 1941 was $8,910; in 2006,
it'was $11.2 million.
Current Finance Director
Amy Ady, who glanced over
the records, described the
bookkeeping as "very meticu-
lous."
"I thought, man, how the
world of finance has changed in
the last 70 years," she said.
A small section in the book-
let listed all the entities the city
owed money. If the city did that
today, it would be 20 to 25
pages, Ady said.
The contributions section
from the same era showed a
$50 donation to the Red Cross
war relief fund.
Police court cases for the
month of January of 1943
showed a list of offenses that
required lawbreakers to stand

before a city judge. Improper
parking netted a fine of $1. A
petit larceny suspect was
excused to go into the U.S.
Army, records showed.
To get out of jail for being
drunk, one violator had to pay a
$5 bond.


And then there were those
who broke the law by using
profane language. Durbin did-
n't think that law was still in
play.
"If it is, we'd be putting a lot
of people in jail," he said,
laughing.,

Letters
Continued from page A-
for entering the race. Although
his reasoning was sound, his
motives seem to contradict
what he said in his lawsuit
against Osceola County and
what he has been trying to get
us to believe.
Mr. Ramirez repeatedly has
told anyone who would listen
that the reason for his lawsuit
was that the Hispanic popula-
tion was not being properly
represented, and that we
should have a Hispanic on the
Board of County Commis-
sioners. If this truly was his
motive, Mr. Ramirez would
drop out of the race and
throw his support behind Mr.
Quifiones. Mr. Quifiones is
clearly the candidate with the
most name recognition and
political experience. He also is
Hispanic.
Mr. Ramirez has made it
clear by his actions that his first
priority is not getting Hispanic
representation, but rather get-
ting himself elected.
How can we trust someone
who has disrupted the election
process, cost the county mil-
lions of dollars and polarized
the community in order to
increase his own chance of
being elected, to act in the best
interest of his constituents? .
Mr. Ramirez has run for
various public offices before


and lost. It seems that each
time he loses,' he blames it on
the fact that he is Hispanic,
and the county is at fault, usu-
ally followed by some sort of
lawsuit or disclaimer. If Mr.
Ramirez loses this time, we
can only wonder what sort of
antics will follow.
Frank Keeler

For DeNike
To the editor:
I have noticed that one of
the issues of great emphasis
during the upcoming Osceola
County Commissioners elec-
tions is whether an Anglo is
able to represent the Hispanic
community of Osceola County.
I happen to be a Hispanic
whose primary language is
Spanish; however, I don't
believe that it really, matters
what the cultural or ethnic
background of the candidate is
as long as the person has the
knowledge, skills, ability and
most important of all, willing-
ness to properly represent each
and every citizen in the same
manner setting aside cultural,
religious and ethnic differences.
One community leader who
has demonstrated a great level
of skill, interest and unbiased
positive attitude toward every
person in this community is


Frank DeNike, who is running
for the commissioners' seat in
District No. 4. I met Frank
seven years ago while conduct-
ing investigations of elderly
abuse, neglect and exploitation
for the Department of Children
and Families.
As an attorney, Frank has
represented many elderly and
disabled adults of various ethnic
backgrounds who were the vic-
tims of abuse, neglect and
exploitation. In every case that
I have worked with Frank, I can
attest that he has always repre-
sented each client with dignity
and respect, whether they were
Anglo, Hispanic, African-
American or any other race.
One of the last initiatives that
Frank was involved with was
reaching the faith-based com-
munity to find ways to improve
the communication between the
Hispanic and English speaking
communities in Osceola
County. This is the kind of
leader that our community
needs, a man who is sensitive to
the needs of our community 'and
is ready to do what is needed.
We are already too divided.
Let's not make the mistake
again to elect candidates who
are more concerned with their
wallets than the community.

:his new job as county manag-
er since 2003.
Before he was picked,
Freilinger said the county
would face challenges to
manage growth and trans-
portation while balancing
property taxes with the
annual budget.
Commissioners first voted
3-2 in favor of Keith Chad-
well, a deputy county manag-
er from Atlanta, but a second
round of voting gave
Freilinger the advantage.
Commissioners Paul Owen
and Tom Franklin listed


Freilinger's leadership, orga-
nizational skills and financial
experience as reasons why
they thought he would be best
suited for the job.
Acting County Manager Jo
Thacker, who took the job in
May on a temporary basis
after former county manager
Ed Hunzeker was fired, is
expected to return to her pre-
vious role as county attorney,
once Freilinger starts.

a downtown area, apart-
ments, condominiums and
homes that in some cases
cost more than $1 million. It
is estimated that Celebration
as a town would have up to
6,600 residents.
To become incorporated,
residents must submit a town
charter and a study detailing
the effects of incorporation
to legislators before they
could approve the idea and
let voters decide.
District 79 Rep. Frank
Attkisson, R-St. Cloud, said
the delegation would ensure
all requirements for incor-
poration have been met
regarding the community's
involvement.
About 20 people spoke
during the informal meeting
and differed over whether or
not the bill should be
approved, while others ques-


tioned the data used in the
feasibility study.
Celebration resident
Bruce Carlson submitted
244 signed petitions from
residents asking legislators to
delay action until the next
session so they could further
study the issue.
"We need time in Celebra-
tion," he said.
Celebration has taken the
right steps to become a
municipality, said Marilyn
Crotty, director of the Flori-
da Institute of Government
at UCF.
She added that whether
the community chooses to
do so is up to voters.
"It's up to the citizens of
Celebration to determine
their destiny," Crotty said.

WEIGHTLIFTING PREVIEW


Will St. Cloud maintain hold


on conference crown?


By Ken Jackson
News-Gazette Staff Writer
St. Cloud extended its
county weightlifting domina-
tion in 2006 by winning its,
eighth consecutive Orange
Belt Conference champi-
onship and 13th in 14 years.
The Bulldogs lost several
good lifters from that team,
including 183-pound state
champion Nate Sandoval, but
Coach Mark Jackson has a
large pool of talent to draw
from for a defense.
Osceola
Coach Jeff Rolson is mak-
ing beasts on the football field
by getting his football beasts in
the weight room this spring.
Well, most of the guys are
beasts. Senior Josh Keefer, all
'83 pounds of him, can lift his.
body weight and will compete
at 119 pounds.
"He's one of my favorites,"
Rolson said. "A real weight
room inspiration."
Wrestler Levi Strauss, a
senior, is up a weight class to
139, along with senior Manny
Beriguette. At 154 is sopho-
more Kelvin Zayas, who
should be putting up totals in
the 470 range, said Rolson.
Senior Kairee Daniels and
junior Pat Lambert will lift at
183, and juniors Taylor

Caitlin Howell proved that
.hard work can pay dividends,
even if not everyone around
you takes notice.
The three-year starter at
sweeper for the Harmony
High girls soccer team,
despite the Longhorns hav-
ing a different coach each
season and not a lot of suc-;
cess, signed a scholarship
recently to Warner Southern
,College in Lake Wales. She
is the first Harmony soccer
player of either gender to
sign a college grant.
Howell, 17, was a four-year
varsity player. After spending
her freshman year at St.
Cloud, she became the cor-
nerstone of the Harmony pro-
gram. She earned All-County
honors all four years.
Howell was another prod-
uct of the St. Cloud Soccer
Club, for which she played
since age 7. This year, she
will play on a Greater Osce-
ola United Under-18 Pre-
mier club, which will get into
the swing of things in less


Thompson and Cody Pate will
go at 219. Junior heavy-
weight -John Salvatore is
already closing in on a 400-
pound press.
St. Cloud
Coach Mark Jackson said
he started the season with a
good problem he ran out of
room in the weight room.
"We've got 100 kids out.
Our biggest thing to start will
be figuring out the varsity and
JV," he said. "But I rather
have not enough room than
not enough lifters."
A group of seniors will
form the heart of 'the team,
including reigning OBC cham-
pions Robbie Pedicone as
129 and Paul Montalbano,
w'ho went to state at 154.
Other headliners include
. Danie Ronan and Steve Mon-
talvo at 169 and heavyweight
Jody Smith. .
Jackson said he'll need new
leaders, to step, up after the
graduation of several top
lifters, like Sandoval.
"After those guys we're
really young, but we've got a
bunch of freshmen bitten by
the. lifting bug, and we're
excited to see the future of the
program," he said.
"We talk about who came
before them, and lay out
how they did it. We should


than two weeks.
"I'm very excited about
that and about signing,"
Howell said. "The club team
has the best players from.
the high school teams in the
county, and I know many of
them well."
Howell planned to stay in
Florida; Florida Southern Col-
lege in Lakeland and USF
were also on her list. After e-
mailirig Warner Southern dur-
ing a recruiting session, How-
ell &as offered a spot at a try-
out camp. She parlayed that
into a roster spot on next sea-
son's Royals squad.
"I like the school, and it's
only an' hour away from
home," she said.
Coach Kurt Bienias led the
second-year program to -a 3-
11 overall record and a 1-4
record in- the. NAIA Florida
Sun Conference.
Bienias said that Howell
could make an impact in the
Royals lineup right away.
"She could play sweeper or
a center defender if we play a
flat-back 4," he said. "She has
the potential to be an immedi-
ate starter and make an


be good eventually."
Gateway
Coach Butch Caldwell,
the Panthers new football
coach, is in his second year
coaching the weightlifters.
He lists as his top lifters
Joseph Sotoinayor at 129,
Delroy Hall at 154, George
Landis at 199 and Carlos
Rivera at 219.
"With a good year, those
lifters might have a chance
to making it to state," Cald-
well said.
Poinciana.,
Coach Greg .Meyers said
that 30-35 lifters have started
the year in his program, yet
many of them are freshmen
who have never lifted compet-
itively, making it hard to dupil-
cate last year's second-place
finish at the OBC inet
The lifters with the most
potential this year are senior
Arcelino Silva at 139, senior
Johnathan Valentin at 154,
juniors Jeon Leone and
Clemente Neri at 169 and
senior Alex Holmes at 219.
Harmony
Football coach Tyler An-
derson has assumed the reigns
of the lifting program, and has
a few kids he feels can be
competitive at the conference
and sectional level. "I feel like

we should be a competition,

Andeison listed Nick Sar-
doni iheav'."..eight), Kyle
Sweenor (219), Semaj Wash-
ington (154) and Abdiel Coru-
jo (119) as his top contenders.
Celebration
David Holder takes the
reigns of the lift team and
will welcome many a famil-
iar face from off the football
team. One is senior heavy-
weight Randy Kellman, who
has already signed a Divi-
sion I football scholarship


with Iowa State.
I "He's a big strong athlete
that will' anchor our team,"
Holder ,said.
At 23S class. Ronl Philpot
has' made great strides. "He
also played football and got
very committed to the weight
room over the last year,"
Holder said.
The coach also mentioned
senior Romny Castillo, a new-
comer at 129. "He has a lot
of ability and strength. He's
already shown us early that he
can move a lot of weight for a


guy his size. I'm expecting
good things from Romny this.
season.
Holder said he hopes his
team can evolve into' a com-
petitive squad.
"Overall, we hope to be com-
petitive as a team this year, as
well as competitive in some indi-
vidual spots," he said.
"The competition in our
section is tough to say the
least, but we'll be working
hard everyday in the weight
room to get better and be as
competitive as. possible."

impact. However,'" she is going
to come in and be. shocked at
how much higher the level of
play is especially as it
relates to speed of play and,
more importantly, speed of
thought."
Stephanie Jones, an assis-
tant at Harmony, coached
Howell as a freshman at St.
Cloud. i
Jones said she has no
doubt that Howell will commit


to the challenge of playing 'at
the college level.
"She has a fantastic heart
and desire to play the game,"
said Jones. "She gives it all,
win or lose. She is one of the
most naturally gifted soccer
players I've coached.
"I think the biggest adjust-
ment to college is the dual
focus on academics and the
sport you're playing. Every-
thing becomes so intense at


that level. But we're so excited
for her to be the first soccer
signee at Harmony."
Howell, who also plays flag
football, said that her instinct
for being in position is her
strength as a defender.
"I have a good vision for
where the ball is going," she
said. "I know playing the col-
lege game is going to be tough
at first, but I'm willing to put
forth the work."

By Ken Jackson
News-Gazette Staff Writer
District baseball play has
started, and with tough teams
dotting the schedule of every
county team, it's going to be a
tough spring.
On Tuesday, Poinciana
needed a clutch two-out, two-
run double in the top of the
seventh inning by Alfredo
Brito to preserve a 4-2 Eagles
victory over Gateway. It was
the first win at Panther Field


for Coach Jim Moran in his
five years in Poinciana's
dugout.
The win moved Poinciana
to a 3-3 start to the season.
The Eagles were slated to host
Oak Ridge Friday in another
District 6A-5 game. PHS
entered Tuesday's game bat-
ting .164, but Moran said
leaning on his deep pitching
staff has kept his team in every
ball game.

"The reality is that we just

still adjusting. We hit the ball
hard [Tuesday]. And we've

We walked a guy in this one

Poinciana took a 2-0 lead

STAYING SHARPE: FOUR RUSHING TDS LIFT OSCEOLA 52-37


KISSIMMEE, FL-- Hard work and consistency have
made running back Paul Sharpe the offensive force he is
today. "Every day I try to get better," said Sharpe, who
carried the ball 14 times for 97 yards. "It's all about
being consistent, working hard every day in practice, and
staying humble. Tonight was a good example of that."
,Sharpe ran himself right into the Osceola
GhostRiders' record book, scoring.four touchdowns in
Osceola's 52-37 win over the Augusta Sparqans on
Saturday night. "It feels good, but I've got to give credit
to the offensive line and receiving corps for great block-
ing downfield every time I touched the ball," said
Sharpe.
With the opposing Spartans playing a vertical, down-
the-field passing game, the GhostRiders retaliated,by hit-
ting the Spartans' defensive front right in the mouth.
"We're a unique team with a lot of unique schemes," said
Osceola head coach Marquette Smith. "We have spent a
lot of time on the ground. It makes it a lot easier for our
passing game. It makes the linebackers take that extra
time to watch the run."
The visiting Spartans struck first, initially quieting a
strong Osceola crowd when Neil Sharma connected with


Marvin Stone on a 27-yard bomb. However, Sharpe.pol-
ished off a solid opening offensive possession for the
GhostRiders with hisfirst score, from 11 yards out.
I Osceola began to seize control midway through the
first quarter. Defensive end Carl Reaves sacked Sharma
on a 4th-and-7 from the Spartans' 21, setting the offense
up with just 15 yards in front of them. The GhostRiders
capitalized on the quality field position four plays later
when Sharpe punched it in from a yard out.
"In any kind of indoor football, momentum is the
key," said Smith, who played as part of four indoor
teams in his professional career, including the now-
defunct Iowa Barnstormers of the Arena Football League.
"We had only four or five series where we didn't score."
Sharpe struck again in the second quarter, igniting a
scoring flurry with a 14-yard rumble. On the ensuing
kickoff, Stone did his best to keep the Spartans in the
game as he ran 49 yards to cut the lead down to five.
Determined not to lose a firm grip on the momentum,
Luther Huggins returned Augusta's kick all the way down
to the Spartans' 10-yard line. One play later, quarterback
Brandon Sumner drilled Lamont Finnie on a slant route
for an easy touchdown pass. But, the Spartans clearly

touchdowns with the GhostRiders as Stone caught a pair..
of touchdowns before half's end. At the same time,,
Sharpe found the end zone for the fourth and final time.
The game hung in the balance at halftime as the
Spartans had crawled back to a 32-28 deficit. "The coach-
es didn't have to do much talking at halftime," said
Sumner, who finished with 73 yards passing on seven of
Eleven attempts. "We felt like we could do what we
wanted to on offense."
Sumner took charge of the second half, making it
clear that he will be a leader in 2007. Using both mobili-
ty with his legs and accuracy with his arm, Sumner
tossed a pair of touchdowns and ran for another on the
road to victory,
' "The running game] was tremendous towards the victo-
ry," said Sumner, who ran for 32 yards on his own. "It.
made a lot of the defensive backs come up to watch the
run and set me up with some easy'throws."
The defense also rose to the occasion, confusing the
Spartans to the point of making two quarterback substitu-
tions in the second half. Turmarian Moreland, James
Smith, and Daveoin Smith each recorded an interception

"The defense' stepped up to the plate when plays
Shad to be made," said Smith. "Every time we play
defense, we play as though we are spotting the opposing
team 20 points."
With a win on opening night, the GhostRiders will

Zodiac


Close encounters of the terrifying kind

No matter how you slice it, this movie is a real killer


.ot events and

and h~eyc'nd in --,"
County; 0:,-.


Creepy. Obsessive. Com-
pelling.
Zodiac, a film about the
unsolved serial killer murders in
the San Francisco Bay area more
than 30 years ago, is all three.
David Fincher (Se7en, Fight
Club) is in top form here as he
delivers a film that is much more
than your average murder film
based on real-life events. It's also
about the after effects of pursu-
ing a monster for all those years.
Jake Gyllenhaal is the hero of


sorts here, playing Robert Gray-
smith, a guy who was a young
cartoonist at the San Francisco
Chronicle when the Zodiac Killer
first emerged from his hole.
Graysmith soon became
obsessed by the killer until the,
case practically consumed him.
He eventually would write a book
about the killings, which was
used in part to tell this story.
Fincher uses the opening min-
utes of Zodiac to great effect,I
introducing the killer and his


assorted victims, which are usual-
ly young couples in park settings.
The killings, while not horrifi-
cally graphic, are about as unset-
tling as you will ever see in a
movie. The one where the Zodi-
ac, wearing a bizarre costume,
approaches a young couple in
daylight, is particularly gruesome,
as he stabs his victims again and
again and again.
While Gyllenhaal is top-billed,
he has to share screen time
with a cast of scene-stealers,


particularly Robert Downey Jr.
as Chronicle cop beat reporter
Paul Avery and Mark Ruffalo as
an animal cracker-eating detec-
tive assigned to the case. Both
men's lives are eaten and spat
out in the years that follow the
Zodiac's spree.
But long after they have given
up on the case, Graysmith con-
tinues to try to put the pieces
together. In one scene, he is
quite like Richard Dreyfuss in

Mister we could use a mam-

Everybody talked this way
G.R.O. LaSalle Redgrave
Those were the Days.
The lyrics aren't mine, thank-
fully. They come from the Web
site www.amiright.com which
specializes in misheard music
lyrics.
The lyrics from the All in
the Family opening theme
"Those Were the Days," sung
in full Bronxese by Archie and
Edith (Carroll O'Conner and
Jean Stapleton for.some rea-
son have been one of the
most misquoted singing duos
in TV history, particularly the
part where they sing "boy our
,old LaSalle ran great."
I guess part of the problem
is no one knows what a
;LaSalle (a car from the 1920s
or something) is anymore.
By the time Archie and Edith
sing the theme song in season
Ssix, the newest DVD box set of
All in the Family, the words
,definitely are clearer than they
were in season one.
But things certainly have
'changed since the show first
!debuted in 1971. Season six
debuted on September 8, 1976.
Archie is still a bigot, Edith
jis still a dingbat and Mike is
:still a meathead, but Archie
"has mellowed a bit. Maybe
;that's because this is the sea-
:son of the birth of Joey Stivic,
Mike and Gloria's only child.
The birth highlights the sea-
son in a two-part episode that
is kind of reminiscent of the
'birth of little Ricky on I Love
: Lucy. Gloria even gets stuck
Sin a phone booth at a restau-
,rant and Archie shows up.at
the hospital in blackface
'because he was about to per-
'form in a minstrel show.
Several of the .season's
episodes revolve around Gloria's
(Sally Struthers) pregnancy and
the edition to the Bunker/Stivic
clan, including Joey's baptism
and an episode devoted to
'Archie babysitting his grandson.
SBut the season started off in typ-
ical ground-breaking fashion
when Archie came home from
an evening of moonlighting dri-
ving a cab to announce to the
family that he saved a woman's
life by giving her mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation.
SOnly it wasn't a woman, it
Swas female impersonator Bever-
ly LaSalle. The episode proved


SONY


to be an instant classic.
With the birth of little Joey,
Mike and Gloria moving next
door and the Beverly LaSalle
episode, season six of All in the
Family ranks up there with the
best of the series. There were
still three more seasons to go
and plenty of highlights before
the' show was transformed into
Archie Bunker's Place.
All in the Family season six
(Sony Pictures) features all 24
complete, unedited episodes.

The Prestige missed out
on any awards at Oscar time
last weekend, but not that it
wasn't deserving. The film has
some first-rate effects.
Indeed, The Prestige
would seem to be the perfect
film for sleight of hand direc-
tor Christopher Nolan.
His Memento, one of the
best films of the past 10 years,
continues to amaze with its
backwards logic and twists
and turns.
Nolan's latest is not, unfor-
tunately, as amazing as that
earlier film, but it does prove
that the director continues to
be one of the more daring and
gifted filmmakers out there.
There are more tricks in'
play in The Prestige, a tale
of two master magicians at
war with each other around
the turn of the century.
It's Wolverine (Hugh Jack-
man) versus Batman (Christian


Bale) as the two men battle each
other both on stage and off.
The Prestige, as you
might expect from any Nolan
film, is not a straightforward
enterprise. It is full of tricks
and traps as well as one of
those films where the produc-
ers urge both reviewers and all
that see the film not to reveal
any of its secrets.
With all of that build-up, its
not surprising that The Pres-
tige is a bit of a let down.
Nolan does try to help out
with the process, providing one
major clue for the goings on.
Michael Caine, who plays
Cutter, a magician ingeneur, the
guy' who designs the illusions,
says in the film's opening that
every great magic trick consists
of three acts. The first act is
called the pledge, where the
magician shows you something
ordinary, but of course, it proba-
bly isn't. The second act is called
the turn, where the magician
makes his ordinary something
do something extraordinary.
Finally, there is the third act, the
prestige, which has twists and
tums and something shocking
you've never seen before.
The Prestige follows that
concept, and Nolan offers it
as a guide as the film contin-
ues to its inevitable "shock-
ing" conclusion.
Jackman plays Robert
Angier and Bale is Alfred Bor-
den, two magicians with very

different styles, who become
bitter rivals in London. Angler
is the better showman of the
two, but it is Borden who real-
ly is the creative genius. The
rivalry intensifies show by

What do you do when you
are a black man living in the
rural South and you find a
scantily clad, half-dead white
woman in the driveway?
If you're Samuel L. Jack-
son in Black Snake Moan,
you chain her to your living
room radiator.
Black Snake Moan defi-
nitely is one of those films you
will talk about on the ride
home from the movies. It has
a little of everything sex,

violence, redemption, and
yes, more sex.
Christina Ricci is the scant-
ily clad, half-dead white
woman found in the driveway,
among other places. She
plays Rae, a young woman
who just can't get enough sex.
But writer/director Craig
Brewer's (Hustle & Flow)
Rae isn't your common vari-
ety good-time girl. She has a
major sexual problem.
The problem is so bad that
her fiance (Justin Timberlake)
hasn't been gone for five min-
utes for a tour of duty in the
service before she already is
bed-hopping.
Even after she is chained to
Lazarus' (Jackson) radiator,
she is still spreading joy,
among other things, to any
male who just happens to
come knocking on the front
door.
But while Black Snake
Moan definitely has a pulp
novel feel, to go along with
that pulp novel ad plugging
the film, the film is more Ten-
nessee Williams than Valley
of the Dolls.
Lazarus isn't quite sure


Here's, a film that's not fit for pigs


IWild Hogs is just

just one big boar.
In a nutshell: A quartet of
'middle-aged biker wannabes,
'the "Wild Hogs," take off on
,a road trip and have many
Sale bonding adventures,
,including an encounter
;with a real bike gang.
: Generally speaking, this
-lame, unfunny exercise in
-middle-age wish fulfillment
;will only, perhaps, satisfy
-the target market doughy
-old guys with enough dis-
posable income to afford a
loud, shiny substitute for
'their lost youth. And even
they will have to admit that
"it ain't all that.
All four of the main
'sequence stars of this movie
-(Tim Allen, Martin
Lawrence, William H. Macy
,and John Travolta) have
been accused in movies they
-have made recently of walk-
:ing through their parts.
However, the sheer laziness
displayed by the actors, this
,time on motorcycles, has
them riding through this one
'from Cincinnati to their ulti-
mate vacation destination:
.Paycheck Land.
2 Emasculation as motiva-
tion reigns supreme from
'the very start of our flick, as
the mortifying existences of
the lead foursome is played
,out in painful, lingering
detail. Doug Madsen (Allen)
"is a dentist who gets no
respect at home from wife


or kid. Woody Stevens (Tra-
volta) is a vaguely defined
entrepreneur who has been
taken to the cleaners by his
ex-wife. Dudley Frank
(Macy) is hopeless around
(and gets put down regularly
by) the ladies. But the most
hopeless and hapless of the
group is poor Bobby Davis
(Lawrence), a plumber who
lives a hellish existence
dominated by a vicious,
yappy wife and her
momma. Even if you truly
dislike Martin Lawrence's
movies (and many, many do)
you will feel sorry for him in
this one and want him (and
yourself) out of that torture
chamber pronto.
Used to being weekend
bike warriors, the "Wild
Hogs" decide collectively
(with some major prodding
by Woody) that enough is
enough and seek to prime
the pump of change via a
road trip out to the Cali
coast. Thus ensues a series
of set pieces designed
around repetitious, "hilari-
ous" slapstick events, as the
group gets their motors run-
nin' out across the Heart-
land. The first time Macy
runs into a sign, it prompts
a chuckle, but then we see it
again.., and again.
Another side-splitting run-
ning theme is homophobia.
In a creepy skinny-dipping
scene involving kids(!)
and their freaked-out dad
and mom discovering the
"Hogs" sans togs in a small
pond, we get to see a full-on
shot of Bill Macy's untoned
50-something posterior.
Does anyone really want or
need to see THAT? Bad for
his career, worse for us. The
"jokes" are supposed to
come from the "hogs" dis-
avowing, far too strenuously,
any hint of gayness (funny,
huh?). They are aided in


their queer-fear shtick by
a persistent, amorous cop
(played by 'John C. McGin-
ley), who would just
love to ride with the
"Hogs." The whole concept
is jaw-droppingly inappropri-
ate and plays about as subtly
as the tawdriest Benny Hill
skit ever done. Who let
this junk stay in the
picture? They should be left
by the side of the road.
With the "Hogs'" manli-
ness (what little they pos-
sessed in the first place)
intact, they finally end up at
a real biker bar filled with
(go figure) real nasty, smelly
bikers. You might actually
cheer when the semi-psycho
leader of the biker gang, the
Del Fuegos, Jack (Ray Liot-
ta) calls out the "Wild Hogs"
for the suburban posers that
they are. Unlike Pee-Wee
Herman, the four pals from
Cincy can't dance their way
out of trouble, and more or
less sneak away after sab-
otaging the Del Fuego's
rides! A fiery conflagration
ensues, burning down the


bar, and sending the Del
Fuegos on a vendetta to
find/stomp them "Hogs."
You, perhaps, might be
pulling for the Del Fuegos at
this point.
Nearby, in the quiet little
town of Madrid, the "Wild
Hogs" finally seem to find
some peace by bonding with
the locals, especially Dud-
ley, who finds himself in an
unlikely romance with local
diner owner Maggie (Marisa
Tomei). The Del Fuegos dis-
cover the "hogs" heaven,
and there is trouble in par-
adise... big time. The film
actually ends with a serious-
ly unfunny beat-down of the
woeful "Hogs" and a
timely intervention by a
movie biker legend. If only
this guy had been in the pic-
ture from the start.
Ultimately, everything
that isn't simply forced and
formulaic in this film is as
flat as an unlucky biker's
tire. The cinematography,
like the script and the acting,

what he's got when he brings
the unconscious Rae into his
home. After a little exploring
around town, he finds Rae is a
girl with a past and then
some, and he decides to be
her rehabilitator.
Of course, Lazarus' home life
wasn't exactly tranquil before he
got another mouth to feed. He
had woman troubles of his own,
but she stormed out in an earlier
scene.
Ricci gives one of her bet-
ter performances here,
though she owes a lot of
inspiration to previous per-
formances by Juliette Lewis
and Roseanna Arquette
among others.
But it is Jackson who rises
to the occasion as usual play-
ing a lapsed bluesman who


gets inspired by his house-
guest to get that guitar out
one more time. The classic
bluesy soundtrack as well as
some songs performed by
Jackson flow perfectly within
Black Snake Moan.
And even Timberlake, who
has some psychological prob-
lems of his own, fares well in
the film.
The best thing about Black
Snake Moan though is that it
dares to be different and does-
n't take the easy way out,
even if it is not a wholly origi-
nal film.

Rated R.

niques, and what was mes-
merizing in Memento (and
made the movie compelling to
see again and again) is mostly
just more confusing here than
it needs to be. But even if you
did see it in the theaters a few
months back, it is worth a sec-
ond look to catch some of
things you might have missed.
This was last year's second
film set during the golden age
of magicians (The Illusion-
ist, being the first), and both
have captured an era quite
brilliantly.
The Illusionist is the


superior film though, its story
more cohesive and fun to
watch as it unfolds, but it too
did not receive any awards at
The Oscars.
The Prestige also stars
the currently ever-present
Scarlett Johansson.
The new two-disc set from
Buena Vista Home Entertain-
ment has a disc full of behind
the scenes extras with Nolan
well worth a look.
