Karate teacher faces 30 years to life


By Juliana A. Torres
Staff Writer
An Osceola County jury
ruled Wednesday that
Bradley Knight was guilty of
having sex with his 15-year-
old karate student.
The 37-year-old owner
and instructor of Tigers' Den
Karate-Do Academy in
Kissimmee faces more than
300 other charges for sexual
acts with four other under-
age girls. However, he could


be sentenced to up to 30
years, and possibly life, in
prison for the charges.
His sentencing is sched-
uled for March 26.
The six women on the jury
deliberated for almost two
hours Wednesday night
before deciding that Knight
was guilty of having sex with
the 15-year-old girl, who is
now 17, three times between
July 18 and 21, 2006. All
three incidents were said to


have hap-
pened in the
Tigers' .Den

including in
the loft and
office of the
facility. Knight
"I'm glad
that they realized that he was
a predator. I'm pleased with
the verdict." Orange-Osceola
State Attorney Sarah Hatch
said. "This man took advan-


tage of a 15-year-old girl's
crush and exploited it."
Knight was charged with
six counts of lewd or lascivi-
ous battery, for having sex
with a girl under 18, six
counts of sexual activity with
a child, for having relations
with her when he had been
charged with her care and
two counts of lewd or lascivi-
ous molestation for touching
her inappropriately.
The jury did not convict


Knight of one count, which
the prosecution contended
was the first time he had sex-
ual relations with the girl.
The victim, who was enrolled
in a camp at the karate acad-
emy that 2006 summer, first
told detectives that she had
lost her virginity on July 18
at the Tigers' Den. She later
said that her first time was
actually in a movie theater,
explaining that she was too
embarrassed to admit that.


Knight's lawyer, David,
Fussell, argued that the:
entire case was based on the:
accusations of one girl, who:
had already proved to be a.
liar under oath because of:
her changed stories.
"If she lied about these
serious things, can you trust
her?" he asked the jury to
consider.
The victim first revealed
her relationship with her

New homes will help revitalize area


Lot had six units

deemed nuisances
,By Juliana A. Torres
Staff Writer
City officials and real estate project lead-
ers gathered Wednesday to celebrate the
groundbreaking of the Patrick Street Project
in downtown Kissimmee.
The now vacant lot on the corner of
Patrick Street and Randolph Avenue once
had six units that were a nuisance to the city,
officials said.
"It was not attractive, not what I would
want to see in our downtown," City Com-
missioner Cheryl Grieb said.

Need for Poinciana hospital still in dispute


By Steve Magruder
Staff Writer
Administrative hearing
proceedings began this week
to help determine whether
Osceola Regional Medical
Center should be allowed to
build a hospital in Poinciana
after a competing company
argued recently why the pro-
posed building should not go
up.
An initial order was filed


Tuesday with the state's
Department of Administrative '
Hearings after St. Cloud
Regional Medical Center on
Jan. 16 listed a half-dozen
reasons challenging the appli-
cation to build a Poinciana
hospital.
"The proposed hospital is
not needed, and will result in
costly duplication of services,
to the detriment of (St. Cloud
Regional Medical Center) and


other existing providers, and
will not benefit the population
proposed to be served," the
appeal stated.
The St. Cloud center also
contends that it would lose
patients and its revenue, as
well as nurses, technicians
and physicians if the Poin-
ciana hospital were approved.
Lawyers for the center and
the Agency for Health Care
Administration the group


that initially approved the
hospital -- now have until Feb.
15 to respond to Administra-
tive Law Judge David Mal-
oney's initial order and sched-
ule when they would be avail-
able for a final hearing during
the next two months.

the case include whether

Social service groups

to see 40 percent cut

in St. Cloud funding


By Mallory Bonbright
Staff Writer
Social service agencies will
receive 40 percent less funding
from the city of St. Cloud in
2008.
The City Council at its meet-
ing Jan. 24 agreed to an across-
the-board cut for the 23 agen-
cies that applied.
This year, the City Council
did not accept any new applica-
tions from social service agen-
cies but instead chose to bypass
the usual allocation process and
use an idda presented by Coun-
cilman Tom Griffin. Last year,
the city allocated $250,000 for
social service but reduced that
amount to $150,000 for 2008.
"We took the agencies that
were funded last year and divid-
ed the money equally," Griffin
said. "This way it was fair and
equitable to all agencies."
In addition to the 60 -per-
cent, recipients that requested
more than $1,500 will receive
$12,600 divided evenly among
them. This money was made
available when several agencies
that had previously received


funding did not apply in 2008,
Griffin said. These agencies
included The Transition House,
Applause Academy, Harmony
Blood Drive,

Avenue Ele-
mentary School
and St. Cloud
Aquatics Team.
The decision
came after sev- Gi
eral discussions Griffin
by City Council members on
which agencies they felt was
most deserving of help. Each
member had personal prefer-
ences, making the decision
difficult.
"Funding has to be logic-
based," Griffin said. "We took
the emotion out of the equa7
tion."
In the past, the City Council
allocated funds based on an
average of each council mem-
ber's recommended funding
and dividing by five, Griffin said.
"The funding has always
been divided before, but it has-
n't always been equally divid-

Be ready for storms
The Kissimmee Fire
Department this week
teamed up with the Florida
Division of Emergency Man-
agement to celebrate Severe
Weather Awareness Week
Feb. 2-9.
State, county and local fire
officials sought to educate
residents about topics such as
lightning, tornadoes, floods
and rip currents.
The Kissimmee Fire
Department has provided the
following life-saving tips to
protect you and your family
when severe weather strikes:


Discuss the different
severe weather events that
can occur.
Choose evacuation routes
and a pre-determined place to
meet.
Stock up on emergency
supplies you may need, which
include plenty of drinking
water, flashlights, batteries,
cash and food. Refer to
www. floridadisaster.org/sup-
plykit.htm as a resource.
Take American Red
Cross first aid, CPR and disas-
ter preparedness classes.
Make. sure your NOAA
.weather alert'radio is always
,on.
Check radio and TV
reports during severe weather
events.
Be ready to act when
called upon by local officials.

gram, call the Fire and Life
Safety Hotline at 407-518-

Cuts.
Continued from page A-
ed," Griffin said.
. Social service agencies said
the cut in funding affects the
services they can provide.
"This is happening every-
where for all social service
agencies that need govern-
ment funding," Todd Dixon,
Center for Drug Free Living's
Director of Community
Affairs, said. "The effects of
Amendment 1 and the econo-
my are causing everyone to
struggle for additional fund-
ing."
The number of people the
Center for Drug-Free Living is
deeply affected by funding,


Dixon said. In 2007, the .cen-
ter received $4,200. This year
it will receive $3,188.
"It's becoming increasingly
difficult for the average person
to pay for help," Dixon said.
"By the time they realize that
they need help, they have
exhausted their financial
resources, as well as their fam-
ily's goodwill. This affects
them the greatest."
Agencies will have to come
up with more creative ideas for
funding, Robin Davis, Flee to
Be Free chairwoman, said.
"All social service agencies
and special projects are going


to suffer," Davis said. "It
makes it tough on all organiza-
tions."
This year's cutbacks will
affect how much Flee to Be
Free can spend per child at the
annual awards ceremony,
Davis said. Last year, the
organization, which provides
children with a means to pre-
vent abduction, received
$4,400. This year, it will
receive $3,308. The cutback
makes a huge difference and
the organization is looking for
donations, Davis said.
"It's sad for everyone," she
said.

Sexual offender
law changes
Ten individuals were arrested
for not adhering to a new state
law that requires they get new
markings on their driver licenses
that identifies them as registered
sex offenders.
For the last several months,
Osceola County Sheriff's Office
detectives have been contacting
offenders to make them aware
of the law, which became effec-
tive Feb. 1. On the evening of
that day, detectives conducted a
special operation to verify the
offenders were in compliance.
They arrested Kissimmee
residents Montoya Melchor, 38,
Edgar Colon, 31, Ronald Gay-
hart, 20, Jose Carbone, 60,
Mitchell Pace, 55, Daniel Ferrer,
48, and Charles Lewis, 57, as
well as Michael Shoemaker, 29,
of St. Cloud, Rodney Gibbons,
57, of Davenport, and Antonio
Beverly, 44, of Poinciana.
Gayhart, Gibbons, Carbone,
Pace and Ferrer also were
charged for violating their pro-
bation.
Ten car burglaries in
Celebration reported
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office detectives are investigat-
ing 10 different car burglaries
that occurred in Celebration on


Jan. 19 and 31.
Nine of the 10 cars burglar-
ized were Jeep Wranglers.
Doors on all the vehicles were
stolen, and some of the soft cov-
ers as well. The last vehicle was
a truck, where the tailgate was
stolen.
The burglaries all occurred
between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m.
Seven of the 10 burglaries
reported to detectives occurred
Jan. 31.
Dogs saved
in house fire
A fire in a home at 401 S.
Clyde Ave. displaced two fami-
lies and killed a pet cat, but res-
cuers with Kissimmee Fire
Department were able to save
two cocker spaniels, which were
trapped in the house.
The fire started in the laundry
room on the second floor of the
house around 2:10 p.m. Tues-
day. The people in the laundry
room were able to escape, and
no one was injured in the fire.
Three fire engines and a quint
truck responded within five min-
utes of the call and had con-
trolled the blaze by 2:21 p.m.
Rescue personnel used the
department's new special pet
oxygen masks, donated by local
residents and veterinarians, to
get the dogs breathing before
transporting them to the May-


fair John Young Pet Hospital for
observation.
Kissimmee Wing
House burns down
A fire engulfed the Wing
House at 3405 W. Vine St. in
Kissimmee Monday.
The state Fire Marshall's
Office determined the fire was
started accidentally and could
find nothing suspicious, report-
ing that it likely started by an
electrical problem. Nonetheless,
Kissimmee Fire Department
personnel worked four hours to
bring the blaze under control,
Deputy Chief Jeremy Donovan
said.
The department first received
the call at 6:42 a.m. The fire
dosed down Vine Street in both
directions from Dyer and Arm-
strong boulevards.
Fire personnel worked
through the afternoon salvaging
and cleaning up what amounted
to a total loss of the building.
Man found dead
inside home
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office detectives are trying to
figure out what happened at a
St. Cloud house Friday morn-
ing after one man was found
dead inside.

first blast of the drug that would
eventually run her life. Looking
back, Teresa doesn't even
remember when exactly that
fateful day was six, maybe
seven years ago.
Everything became a blur
after that.
The prostitution was the
inevitable result after money
that should have gone to bills
went to crack rocks instead.
"It was easy to close my eyes
for five minutes and not pay
attention to where I was or what
I was doing," she explained.. "I
was just thinking of the out-
come, and the outcome was
that I was getting paid."
But the prostitution soon spi-
raled out of control. Teresa's
days were filled with a parade of
men whom, for an hour or less,
she controlled. The money was


Sheriff's Office deputies
received a call at 1:38 a.m. Fri-
day about a man that might be
dead inside the house at 1709
Jersey Ave.
Deputies later arrived at
the house and tried to contact
two men inside, reports stat-
ed. One man ran out, and
another apparently barricaded
himself inside.
Some homes in the sur-
rounding area were evacuated
temporarily because deputies
said they were unsure if the
man reportedly barricaded
inside the home was danger-
ous or had weapons.
After spending several
hours trying to contact the
man, SWAT officers entered
the home after 6 a.m. and
found him dead inside. His
cause of death was not imme-
diately released.
No names have been
released either, and detectives
were waiting on a search war-
rant to enter the home and
investigate further as of press
time Friday.


fast and easy, and the power
itself was intoxicating, she said.
Prostitution became an addic-
tion all its own.
Teresa's experiences are
similar to those of many women
living night by night in motels in
west Osceola County. Prostitu-
tion, notorious in the south part
of Orange County along
Orange Blossom Trail, has
slowly inched its way into west
Kissimmee as well.
Arresting
the girls
The problem has been
prevalent enough to attract the
attention of law enforcement. In
late May, the Osceola County
Sheriff's Office conducted an
undercover operation targeting
an increase in prostitution traf-
fic. In a three-day span, 13

night, police officials said. He

He eventually ran toward the

Ninotchka Page, 39, said
she's sold her services in the
past, but that wasn't her inten-
tion on May 22 when she was
arrested for it. Ninotchka had
just moved from' Lake County
to live with her boyfriend, who
had finally convinced her that
she didn't have to be a prosti-
tute anymore.
But he wasn't with her that
evening so Ninotchka had to

Arrested on
felony warrants
A man with four active felony
warrants was arrested Wednes-
day morning after fleeing a traf-
fic stop.
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office deputies stopped 21-
year-old Dennis Oshay Beverly,
of Kissimmee,
at about 3:12
a.m. at Park
Place Boule-
vard.
He reported-
ly fled on foot
but was later
apprehended in Beverly
the area of Dell-
wood Court with the help of K-
9 units.
Beverly, charged with crimi-
nal mischief, weapons law viola-
tions, violation of probation on
previous cocaine, charges, two
counts of resisting without vio-
lence, failure to appear and con-
tempt of court, was booked into
the Osceola County jail.


abeth's boyfriend was in jail on
a DUI charge. A man inside the
van that pulled up beside her
that day said he was a tourist
from Daytona and asked her if
she wanted to party.
"Great!" she told him. "It's
my birthday; I have no one.
Let's party."
Elizabeth suggested they buy
food at the Wal-Mart in west
Kissimmee. The man agreed to
drive her. there.
Neither Ninotchka nor Eliza-
beth knew they were driving
with an undercover cop and
both were picked up within 20
minutes of each other that day.
"All I've got is 18 bucks," the
undercover cop apologetically
explained to both.
"I don't care about that,"
Elizabeth told him, still con-
fused as the cop drove her
around the corner. "It doesn't
matter to me."
Deputies serving as back
up were within minutes of
arresting her.
Ninotchka, still in the van in
the drive-thru of the McDon-
ald's, realized what the under-
cover cop wanted for $18 and
although she had been talking
dirty along with him, she decid-.
ed to leave. Her hand was on
the car door handle as deputies,
monitoring the conversation in
patrol cars some distance away,
swarmed in to arrest her.
The arrest affidavits for
Ninotchka and Elizabeth indi-


cate both women agreed to per-
form oral sex for $18. Prostitu-
tion, a misdemeanor charge.,
landed both women in jail,
where they struggled to come
up with the relatively small bail
amount.
The increase
in traffic
The undercover operation
was a first for the newly formed
west command of the Osceola
County Sheriff's Office, which
Sheriff Bob Hansell formed to
specifically monitor crime
trends in west Osceola County.
Lt. Mark Thompson said the
deputies looked for women who
were known prostitutes or who
gave signals that they were
open to it.
Women soliciting stand near
the road, walk casually up and
down the sidewalk or wave cars
down from where they are, he
said.
"We watch for activity all the
time. We noticed that there
seemed to be a higher amount
of traffic," Thompson said. "I'm
hoping this will resolve the
problem there."
Without a specific undercov-
er operation, it's difficult to
arrest someone for prostitution.
Sgt. Jim Loughlin, of the
Kissimmee Police Department,
oversees regular patrols on the
east side of the city. He said he
and his officers try instead to
discourage the illegal activity by


keeping the presence of law
enforcement apparent and
prevalent.
"If you leave the area alone,
it becomes overridden," he said.
"You have to keep them look-
ing over their shoulder. Obvi-
ously, it's the oldest profession,
so you're not going to eliminate
it."
The men who cruise U.S.
Highway 192 looking for sex
are as much a part of the prob-
lem as the actual prostitutes.
They know to look for specifics.
Elizabeth said she gets solicited
all the time just for walking
down the street. Her skinny
frame suggests that she could
be a crack addict and thus will-
ing to sell her body.
"I cannot walk down 192
without some' jerk yelling out
the window," she said. "I have
to walk because I have no car. I
get stopped constantly by the
police. And since I'm skinny,
oh, I'm a crack-head already."
However, the "johns" have
been targeted in undercover
operations as well. The Kissim-
mee Police Department arrest-
ed eight men in one operation
in 2007 for soliciting undercov-
er female officers for sex.
"We're trying to work
smarter to target both the sup-
ply and the demand side of the
social problem," Deputy Chief
John Klein said. "Unfortunate-

and emergency transport
access issues warrant a new
hospital, whether competing
hospitals serve the needs of
targeted residents and whether
a new hospital would affect
the livelihood of Osceola
Regional Medical Center's
own hospital in Kissimmee.
"We just don't feel there's a
need for another hospital on
the market right now," St.
Cloud Regional Medical Cen-
ter spokeswoman Jackie Park-


er said.
Osceola Regional Medical
Center filed its most recent
application for a 60-bed acute
care hospital with the Agency
for Health Care Administra-
tion in September.
The administration gave its
initial approval Dec. 28, but
St. Cloud Regional Center
appealed the decision during' a
required 21-day window
before it could be finalized.
Osceola Regional Medical


Center Chief Executive Officer
Tim Cook said in an earlier
interview that the hospital
would aid Poinciana residents
who might have trouble get-
ting to and from surrounding
facilities due to frequent traffic-
clogged roads in and out of the
residential community.
"I think it's real important,
because there's a big void," hie
said. "The folks that live out
there right now are .
sequestered."

Opinion


Editorial


Time to look at reform


Voters now have another source
of information to use when deciding
which candidates to select in upcom-
ing county elections. Kudos to the
Kissimmee-Osceola County
Chamber of Commerce for creating
a Web page on its Web site that con-
tains a variety of information on all
county candidates.
The information provided, espe-
cially as it relates to a candidate's
stand on issues and what govern-
ment experience he or she has, is
important information to have when
entering the voting booth. However,
the most telling information, we
believe, is in campaign contribution
disclosure forms, which are available
on the Chamber Web site as well as
at the Supervisor of Elections office.
Who is giving what candidate
money and what interests the donor
represents is extremely important. It is
clear from the campaign contributions
already filed that resort and develop-
ment interests are heavily courting
some county commission candidates.
While donors will deny they are
seeking influence by saying they are
"interested in the local political
process," we all know they are making


donations because they believe it will
smooth the path of this or that project.
That's the way it is and has been -
here in Florida and Osceola County.
What is disheartening is that County
Commission candidates continue to
take multiple $500 contributions from
various business entities that are con-
trolled by the same businessman or
business partners who have projects.
that will soon be under consideration.
What is even more disheartening is that
these same candidates, if elected, won't
bat an eye when voting on a project in
which a large donor is involved.
Is it legal for a candidate to take
numerous $500 contributions from
closely related interests pushing a large-
scale development project? The
answer is yes. Is it right? Clearly no.
What we need in Florida is cam-
paign reform to outlaw the practice of
candidates taking multiple maximum
contributions from a corporation, that
corporation's top official, the official's
wife and the various business entities
controlled by that official. .
We aren't likely to see reform any-
time soon. The next best thing would
be for voters to take this interest-ped-
dling into account.

Congratulations
to Ramirez
To the editor:
Please let me be -he first to congrat-
ulate Armando Ramirez. He has suc-
ceeded in both taking the first step
toward ruining the future of the Osceola
County School District, as well as joining
an unwanted emerging trend. You see,
Mr. Ramirez could not win in the School
Board's previous election process. So,
instead of bowing down and being a gra-
cious loser, he joined an emerging trend
that I like to refer to as the "Because-I-
can't-win-by-the-rules-that-have-been-
established-for-years-I'm-going-to-
change-them-and-threaten-with-a-law-
suit-until-a-change-is-made-to-help-me-
win" trend. Take a deep breath because
there is another trend that Mr. Ramirez
has joined that is also on that not-so-
pleasant list. It's the "Because-l-can't-
win-I'm-going-to-play-the-race-card-in-
hopes-of-gaining-media-exposure-for-
my-cause" trend. I know that was a
mouthful, but it was also the truth.
Now before I get too far along, I feel
that I need to make it perfectly clear that
I fully agree and support Mr. Ramirez's
main intention with this new election
process. He wants Hispanic representa-
tion on our School Board. That truly is
a worthwhile idea to strive for, especial-

ly with the number of Hispanic students
in, our school system and with the num-
ber of Hispanic residents in Osceola
County. My problems come with Mr.
Ramirez's method to achieve this goal.
One of my main issues is that he claims
Osceola County is becoming an urban
community. Maybe so, but for now it is
still very much a rural and suburban
community. Also, he could have fol-
lowed the system in place, but instead
he whined and hired lawyers to file a
lawsuit against the county. Someday we
will be ready for single-member districts,
but now. is. not quite that time. If the sys-
tem doesn't allow you to get elected,,
then maybe you aren't meant to be in
that office. I know this might seem
strange, but sometimes voters do know
what they're doing come election time.
Mr. Ramirez could have taken the
hint that most aspiring candidates take,
and regroup and try again. Instead, Mr.
Ramirez cried foul. "The rules in place
encourage discrimination," he claimed.
The sad truth is Mr. Ramirez didn't like
hearing he wasn't wanted or needed, so
instead of playing 'by the rules, he
demanded a change to the rules. Why
have a strong sense of work ethic, take
some pride in what you do or learn from
your mistakes (aka The American Way)
when you can change the rules to win?
What a novel concept: "Don't work,
hard. Just spend thousands of taxpayer
dollars to change the establishment
because it wasn't nice to you."
So again, congratulations Armando
Ramirez for sending our children an
incredible message: "If you lose, don't
try harder the next time. Instead, gather
some friends, make some outrageous
claims,, spend some money that doesn't
belong to you, and change the rules so
that you don't have to try as hard the
next time." You didn't win the last time
you ran, Mr. Ramirez, and I. pray that
the intelligent voters of this great county
will send you the same message again
should you choose to waste our .time in
another election.
Daniel Lackey
Kissimmee,
Opportunity to
'SAVE' Preserve
.To the editor:
The leadership of Osceola County
has a great opportunity to enhance'the
quality of life for our residents and make
a. positive move toward preserving, .a
valuable piece of Osceola County land
and heritage.
Toho Preserve, as it is now called, is
situated in a critical and strategic loca-
tion between Kissimmee/St. Cloud in
the .popular Neptune Road corridor. A
large section of, this property sits direct-
ly on Lake Tohopekaliga. If you have
ever traveled the Neptune Road area,
you know that on any given day you
may see eagle, osprey, otter, snail kites,
alligator, all types of heron, wood storks,
hawk, fox, bobcat, 'turkey and a myriad
of wildlife that is native to our Florida
natural lands. This biodiversity of crea-
tures is rapidly diminishing due to the
conversion of vast amounts of agricultur-
al and natural lands to development; not
just here in Osceola County, but
throughout the entire state.
While growth and a strong economy
is critical to our long-term success in the
county, I would offer up that future gen-


erations of citizens, and especially our
children, will profoundly benefit by the
vision our leadership can make toward
balancing growth with preserving our
precious natural resources in a logical
-and sustainable manner. Just as grow-
ing communities need to plan and
expand the infrastructure of roads,
sewer and utilities, they also need to
plan for an interconnected system of
green spaces that conserves natural
ecological functions such as our beauti-
ful lakes, upland oak hammocks,
cypress wetlands and more.
Osceola County residents have
resoundingly supported environmental
efforts by passing the SAVE Osceola
referendum in 2004. Our residents rec-
ognize that once you bulldoze and alter
the landscape, you change the biology
and hydrology of the land forever. I
can't count the number of Floridians I
have spoken to who lament about
urban sprawl and the development pat-
terns of our Central Florida region.
* Floridians are currently paying a huge
price to restore critical habitat
(Everglades restoration) that man saw fit
to alter before recognizing the impact of
trying to tame and control the natural
systems of Florida.
I urge the leadership and administra-
tion of Osceola County to carefully con-
sider our future generations and create
a vision and-plan of Osceola County
that preserves and enhances the quality
of life for our citizens. This type of plan-
ning will pay incredible dividends for
years to come. Preserving habitat for
less intensive use helps mitigate the
impacts of global warming as trees and
green space are "cooler" forms of infra-
structure compared to roads and roof
tops. Trees help provide for cleaner air,
lands conserved and restored to their
natural state preserve wildlife habitat,
enhance water quality and contribute to
the biodiversity of both plants and ani-
mals in the area. This property directly
impacts our beautiful Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes, the headwaters of the
Everglades.
Saving Toho Preserve from develop-
ment and creating a combination of nat-
ural resource lands, trails and park
amenities will allow Osceola County to
move toward a more comprehensive
park, greenways, trails and natural lands
infrastructure planning situated right in-
between our two rapidly growing cities.
Not only does it make sense for the
Neptune Road corridor, which is already
heavily impacted by traffic and develop-
ment, but it is an investment that will
pay long-term dividends for future gen-
erations of Osceola County residents
andvisitors as we "grow" our communi-
ty in a quality way that we can all be
proud to call home.

Not exactly what
we came for
To the editor:
On Jan. 23, 1 attended a gathering
at the Osceola County Agricultural
Center featuring Divided We Fail, an
arm of AARP.
I went in the hope that my misgivings
a hootenanny show versus a presen-
tation of serious issues, for starters -
would be put to rest, and something sub-
stantial, such as thoughtful solutions on
grave matters, might be offered. Also, I


had my arm thoughtfully twisted online
by one of the organization's key people,
who definitely challenged me to attend.
After all, as he put it, the rally would go
on with or without me. That did it. I
couldn't resist this challenge and,
changed my schedule to be there. I
wanted to make a difference.
Upon entering the center's exhibition
hall, I was greeted by a sea of red-shirt-
ed AARP members queuing up at a
good half-dozen tables to the accompa-
niment of a live Dixieland jazz combo.
Already I saw my prediction taking
shape this was going to be another
quasi-political jamboree. I hypocritically
grabbed a plate and availed myself of the
beautiful crudites and chunked cheeses,
Starbuck's coffee and iced water. And
yes, I joined the crowd and took the req-
uisite shirt, cap, pins and plastic cup,
stuffing all in to the matching red tote. I
was as good as everyone else, all the
while knowing my AARP dues could
have been put to far better use
Easels erected nearby gave me a per-
fect opportunity to scribble my two
cents: "Corporate America should halve
prices and double employment." Sated, I
took my seat in anticipation of the main
event the coming together of three
divergent organizations: the Business
Round Table, the National Federation of
Independent Businesses and the Service
Employees International Union. Nothing
could 'have been more accurate. They
came together and apparently Jeft the
same way immediately thereafter. Not
even a business card could prove their
having graced the stage.
But then the real program unfold-
ed, one which seemed in direct defi-
ance of what I had been advised.
"We are working in a non-partisan
fashion, seeking bi-partisan solutions that
grant all generations of Americans
greater access to affordable health care
and long-term financial security for all
who have worked and saved." Did I'see
"non-partisan?" One after the other, and
in successively lengthening speeches,
representatives for Romney, Huckabee
and McCain pitched and proselytized
their political platforms. A sea of seniors
didn't seem to stir, until one stood up and
spoke for all, vehemently shouting, "This
is not what we came for!" Those seated
nearby vanished into thin air, leaving a
gaping section of seats. She or someone
of strong resemblance was later spotted
in the lobby, grabbing the collar of a vol-
unteer in a fruitless example of "kill the
messenger." This I could relate to.
Mind you, all this was supposed to
be a bipartisan affair, not a lopsided
harangue of blatant campaigning.
When this woman and another man
drove those points home, the moder-
ator's lame and forlorn utterance was,
"AARP has no control over this." Oh
really? "No Democratic candidates
would sign the pledge." Well, neither
would I. My word is my deed, even if
Divided We Fail's is not.
I came away disgusted, as did
many. My one consolation: Seeing
and knowing firsthand that those
older than myself have both the
brains and fortitude to, at the very
least, not support what they, like 1,
found to be just another example of
the circus we know as the United
States. In that respect, united we
passed on this rally.
Marlayna MacLarty

The time to
act is now
To the editor:
Thank you for your recent editorial
supporting the county purchase of the
s Partin property between Kissimmee and
St. Cloud so that 1,600 acres becomes
Osceola County's "Central Park."
I supported that purchase even
before D.R. Horton purchased the land,
and I continue to work toward that goal.
The current opportunity to create a pub-
lic park on that land is a second chance,
and there aren't many times in life that
we get second chances. What we need
now is a "can do" approach by our
county commissioners, who could direct
the staff to find a way to do it, not just
research it and give up. There are pub-
lic/private partnerships, or partnerships
with other public agencies that could
work if people really tried to find a way.
/ With that beautiful land used as a
public park, the latest comprehensive
land use plan might actually be a benefit
instead of a burden on our county. The
new state mandates for land use involve
smaller lots and high density in order to
save green spaces.
What these newcomers to Florida
land use don't get is that when that plan
has been done before, it results in the
stacking of people which then leads to
more crime, deteriorating neighbor-
hoods with age, more mental health
problems, more failed marriages and
more child abuse. When will we ever
learn? A large, unspoiled space for the
stacked-up new people to enjoy will alle-
viate some of those problems.
A smaller green space inside a devel-
6pment is not the same as a 1,600-acre
park that allows ,people to hike, jog,
bicycle or just rest under the oak
canopy, watching the lake, the eagles,
flocks of wild turkeys, sandhill cranes
teaching their babies to forage, or hawks
diving on field mice for supper. Imagine
it. The wetlands could be restored.
There would be parking, welcome signs
instead of "no trespassing" signs, and
the sounds of people enjoying our beau-
tiful Florida after work or school. The
wildlife will not be disturbed by excessive
,noise, bright lights and pavement.
Our dwindling water supply will not
be affected because 10,000 people will
not be stacked into homes and apart-
ments there, and we could store water in
the restored wetlands. We can't afford to
allow this opportunity to be lost again.
This land, located between
Kissimmee and St. Cloud, is accessible
to most, and could become the shining
example for other planners who care
about the physical and mental heal health of
their residents, both old and new. Our
commissioners will become heroes to us
all, and their names on a plaque at the
entrance to Osceola Central Park will
ensure their rightful place in the history
of Osceola County. We need more
heroes, and less businesss as usual."
I have been contacted by many other
citizens who support the purchase of
this land, and most have offered to help.
Some have offered to contribute money.
SAVE Osceola was passed by taxpayers
so that our beautiful lands would not all
become small-walled cities.
The time to act is now, and the place
is Osceola Central Park.

Kissimmee Illicit DischargaReporting

Help protect Kissimmee's water and wildlife by reporting stormwater
pollution. Kissimmee Public Works will send an inspector to investigate
the problem and get it cleaned up. Stormwater refers to rain that falls
and carries pollutants along streets and into Kissimmee's creeks, lakes
and other water bodies.

Washing paint down a storm drain, a strange looking discharge coming
from a pipe on the river, or sewage coming out of a manhole are all

Charter committee looking at ethics, gambling, campaigning


By Steve Magruder
Staff Writer
Osceola County's Charter
Review Advisory Committee
met recently to discuss a hand-
ful of issues that could go
before county commissioners,
and residents can give their
opinions Monday night.
The public is invited to
attend the next monthly public
meeting on Monday at 6:30
p.m. in the County Commis-
sion chambers.
The committee will meet
again in March and conduct a
second public hearing in April


before deciding what issues to
recommend to commissioners.
"This is the public's opportu-
nity," committee chairman
Hector Lizasuain said. "We're
there to help ... and make sure
they get heard."
The 11-member Charter
Review Advisory Committee is
appointed by the County Com-
mission to study any or all
phases of county government.
After two public hearings,
eight of the 11 must support a
proposal to amend the charter
before making their formal rec-
ommendation.


Some of the
key topics
debated were
whether the
county's char-
ter should limit
political cam-
paign contribu-
tions, add local


Lizasuain


ethics requirements or possibly
remove casino gaming restric-
tions.
"I see (casino gaming) as a
slippery slope," Commissioner
John Quifiones said. He added
that Osceola County shouldn't
even consider the idea because


of its efforts to promote family-
oriented tourism.
Quiflones also said although
he didn't think any corruption
existed among commissioners,
a discussion on ethics reform
could help with the often-nega-
tive perception 'held by resi-
dents about public officials.
"I think there's no question
that we should look at ethics in
general," he said.
Charter review committee
members also discussed
whether to allow county ordi-
nances to prevail over munici-
pal ordinances, provide non-


partisan County Commission
elections or expand the com-
mission to seven members with
two at large seats.
"As we grow, the need for
representation in terms of hav-
ing an at large commissioner is
not unusual," Quiflones said,
noting that Orange and Volusia
counties use similar hybrid sys-
tems. "I 'don't know if we're
there yet."
Not every issue brought up
would or even could go before
commissioners, Lizasuain said.
Political campaign contribu-
tion reform likely would have to


go through state agencies, as
would ethics requirements.
The point of the discussion,
he said, is to find out how resi-
dents feel regarding the topics
before any action is taken.
"I really want the public to
have some input on this," Liza-
suain said.
Among the officials inter-
viewed during committee meet-
ings have been Orange-Osceo-
la State Attorney Lawson
Lamar, Commission Auditor
Kathy Wall and County Com-
missioners Paul Owen and
Quifiones.


Homes Osceola schools receive $8 million grant

Three new single-family
houses will be built in their
place. The houses are designed
to be affordable and in character
with the rest of Kissimmee's his-
toric district.
The project is the first for
: the newly-formed Osceola
Realtor Foundation, which
will oversee new affordable
housing projects similar to the
Patrick Street Project.
"This is the beginning of the
first project that we have to do,"
said Cyn Zellner, chairwoman of
the foundation.
The project is a collaboration
of efforts by the foundation,
Kissimmee's Community Rede-
velopment Agency, the Florida
Real Estate Foundation's Art in
Architecture program and the
Osceola County Association of
Realtors.


Georgia Cooper, described
by Grieb as the "one good
apple" of the residents who lived
in the homes, also was at the
ceremony. The woman has
been living in Kissimmee for 14
years and has been involved in
the project since the beginning.
She said she looked forward to
seeing the project completed.
"I'm proud of it," she said.
"It'll keep Kissimmee beautiful."
The CRA helped relocate
Cooper and the other residents
when the houses were torn
down.
The new- houses, which will
be manufactured, modular-type
homes, will be ready to move
into by late May or early June,
-Zellner said. The cost of the
homes has not yet been set.

The Osceola School District
has been awarded more than
$8 million for a four-year grant
from the Federal Safe
Schools/Healthy Students Ini-
tiative.
The initiative works to
reduce youth violence, to
increase mental health services
and to create' a safe environ-
ment for all children in Osceo-
la County schools, school offi-
cials said.
"We are excited and grateful
for this opportunity to provide
violence prevention and school
safety resources to our com-
munity's schools and families,"
Superintendent Blaine Muse
said.
The initiative's mission is to
bring together students, par-


.ents, educators and community
leaders to talk about violence
prevention, Dana Schafer,
Osceola School District
spokeswoman, said. In turn,
the school district and its com-
munity partners will work to
create a safe school environ-
ment.
Those community partners
include the Osceola County
Sheriff's Office, Department of
Juvenile Justice, Park Place
Behavioral Health Care,
Human Services Associates,
Community Vision, the Early
Learning Coalition and Univer-
sity of South Florida.
District officials hope to
address prevention and inter-
vention needs for violence and
substance abuse, as well as
provide mental health services
to students in need, Schafer


said. UOther issues addressed by
the grant will include offering
early childhood development
services and establishing safe
school policies.'
"The grant will help us
reduce barriers in learning and
teach our children positive
social skills that will accompa-
ny them throughout their lives
and enable 'them to make wise
choices," Muse said.
The four-year initiative has
five main objectives. The first is
strengthening and sustaining
school safety and security. The
district will reduce levels of
school violence by reducing
property crimes on school
grounds, decreasing disruptive
incidents on school buses and
reducing fights at school,
Schafer said. The district also
will try to enhance graduation


rates of students wno nave
been involved with the Depart-
ment of Juvenile Justice,
Schafer said.
The second objective is to
decrease the use of drugs and
alcohol by expanding dis-
trictwide policies for preven-
tion.
Other objectives include
improving student behavior,
expanding school-based men-
tal health services, evaluating
early childhood programs to
reduce barriers and increase
school readiness in pre-kinder-
garten classrooms, school offi-
cials said.
The Osceola County School
District is one of. 27 districts
nationwide to receive the new
grant. Broward County was
the only other school district in
Florida to receive the grant.

She's passionate about try-

What is true is that many of

karate instructor to her sister,
asking her if she thought it
was OK to date someone sig-
nificantly older. The parents
of the victim called authori-
ties when they realized what
had happened to their
daughter.
After Knight was arrested,
several other girls came for-
ward with their stories of
Knight's abuse; with some
saying the abuse spanned
several years.
Detective Suzanne Ellis, of
the Special Investigations
Unit at the Osceola County
Sheriff's Office, investigated
five cases against Knight,
starting with the 15-year-old
victim's case.
"Ever since the beginning,
we've said that she's our little
hero," Ellis said. "Had she


not come forward, none of
the other ones would have
come forward."
Aside from those five, Ellis
said two other women
reported abuse by Knight.
However, those cases hap-
pened long enough ago that
the statue of limitations had
expired, preventing prosecu-
tion.
Before arresting Knight
on Nov. 4. 2006, Ellis
arranged for a recorded
phone call between Knight
and his victim. Lying to try to
get an admission of guilt on
record, the 15-year-old told
him she was pregnant with
his child.
"I'm going to have to tell
my morn," the girl says on
the recording, her voice

points.
"I wouldn't go rushing into
that," a man's voice tells her.
The man in the recording
tells the girl that he had
taken "precautions" to
assure he couldn't have chil-
dren and told her she was
either panicking for no rea-
son or sleeping with some-
one else.
There was no specific
admission of guilt in the
recording, Fussell said, fur-
ther arguing that the jury had
to trust the victim's testimo-
ny that it was actually Knight
and not someone else.
In her concluding argu-
ments, Hatch asked the
jurors to pay attention to
what the man on the record-
ing didn't say, in that his
argument against ownership


of the "baby" was that he
had had a vasectomy and not
that he hadn't had sex with
the girl.
"This was the strongest
case because of the recorded
phone call," Hatch said.
Because of that, the pros-
ecution took this case to
trial first. After the verdict,
Hatch said whether the
other four cases went to trial
would depend on the sen-
tencing and a possible plea
bargain.
While the victim gave her
testimony during the trial,
Knight decided against tak-
ing the stand in his own
defense.

SOFTBALL PREVIEW


Kowgirls, Horns top OBC contenders


By Rick Pedone
Staff Writer
Like last season, the
Orange Belt Conference soft-
ball championship will proba-
bly be decided when Osceola
travels to Harmony in late
March.
The teams shared the con-
ference title last season, split-
ting two games. This year,
they meet only once during
the regular season.
Both teams, with deep,
experienced rosters, are also
capable of reaching the
regional playoffs.
Former softball power St.
Cloud will rebuild under a new
coach, while the county's
other programs will try to find
traction after uneven 2007
campaigns.
Osceola
George Coffey begins his
15th season as head coach
with potentially one of hils
strongest teams.
"I'm a, little superstitious
about saying things like that
because sometimes things
happen," said Coffey. "But,
we have eight seniors and
we've talked a lot about our
commitment to doing things a
little differently, a little better
this year."
Last year, OHS carried an
18-5 record into the district
tournament, but after a first-
round win the Kowgirls were
eliminated by Timber Creek,
3-2, in a .game they believed
they should have won.
"That stung us all. I told the
girls when practice started
that I'm tired of going out
early in the district tourna-
ment against teams that we
should beat," Coffey said.


"From what I've seen inr prac-
tice, it looks like the kids have
bought into the changes I've
asked them to make."
The Kowgirls go deep at
most positions, starting at
pitcher where senior Megan
Hedrick and junior Ida
Mezzetta are a formidable
duo.
Behind the plate is Kaley
Crapo, a sophomore'who had
an excellent freshman season.
At first base, last year's
county co-players of the year,
Kaitlyn Warren and Andrea
Heifner, two seniors, are
ready to go. At the other cor-
ner, senior Amber Hosier has
been one of the team's best
hitters for three seasons and
freshman Alexa Ballard can
hit for power, said Coffey.
The middle infield positions
are solid with seniors Ashley
Dennis (shortstop) and Baylie
Lane (second base) along with
underclassmen Bianca Torres
(a sophomore) and Belinda
Rennes.(a junior) all expected
to contribute.
Senior Erica Hord returns
to the outfield with senior
Brandi Biller, junior Christiana
Giroux and sophomore Ash-
ley Veilleux.
Don't try to outsmart the
Kowgirls. Last year's team
boasted the highest GPA in
Class 6A. Even though the
team lost outfielder Celeste
Thacker, the state's female
academic athlete of the year
to graduation, eight members
of the Kowgirls squad are aca-
demic all-Americans.
Osceola will be tested. Cof-
fey has three of the state's six
defending state champions on
the schedule in Pine Castle
Christian, Miami Gulliver Prep


and Orlando Trinity Prep. The
team will also host the annual
Kissimmee Klassic in April,
which draws dozens of the
state's best teams to the Osce-
ola County Softball Complex.
The Kowgirls return to 6A
District 6 this season where
they will run into Eau Gallie,
Melbourne, Palm Bay, Vero
Beach and local rival Gate-
way.
"Eau Gallie is always strong
over there, and Melbourne
has a pretty scrappy team that
beat us a couple of years
ago," Coffey said. "We can
potentially have a lot of suc-
cess, but as always it's going
to be up to the players to
decide how far they want to
go."
The Kowgirls are 2-0 after
edging Vero Beach 4-3 on
Thursday.
Harmony
Coach Ralph* King begins
his second season with a tal-
ented squad that posted a 19-
7 record and reached the
Class 4A regional playoffs.
-In 4A District 7, the Horns
figure to be South Lake's
biggest headache in the battle
for the district championship.
King said his team features
both talented, experienced
veterans and promising
younger players. It could be an
ideal mix for success.
"The difference between us
(the Longhorns and Osceola)
will be the influence of the
returners for each team."
King said. "Our talent level is
good, it is just the process of
putting the right chemistry on
the field and executing during
key situations."
Back is senior pitcher


Mandy Turner, co-player of
the year, who signed early to
St. Petersburg College. Senior
Leila Savage will also pitch
and play the infield.
Seniors Lyndsey Letson
and Laney Tucker have been
solid varsity performers for
two seasons and will play the
outfield. Junior Kati Carter
also returns to the outfield.
Junior Amber Hutchinson
and sophomore Christina
Brown return in the infield.
Sophomore catcher Emily
Lanier is one of the most
promising underclassmen in
the county.
Juniors Jordan Rambo and
Stephani Walsh move up from
the JV team. Three freshmen,
Brittany Bruns, Tiffany
Edreson and Peyton Dering,
all will play roles this season,
said King.
"Our younger talent is
great and they will be playing
an important role every game.
If there is a key to our success,
it is their development," he
said.
Poinciana
Coach Jason Maitland
returns for his second season
and is happy with the team's
composition.
"We hope to improve on
last year's season with a solid
core of returners and a few
encouraging new faces to our
program." he said. "We return
five starters from last year's
team."
Returning are seniors Brit-
tney Borene (third) and Leslie
Encarnacion (second). Also
back are juniors Diana Santil-
lana (catcher), Samantha
Loreus (first) and pitcher
Reana Buoy.

Newcomers who may start
are senior shortstop Desiree
Guzman, junior outfielder
Gabrielle Irizarry and fresh-
man outfielder Crystal Valdez.
Freshman Lysa Rocker will
play the outfield.
Gateway
Coach Rebecca Rutkowski
starts her third season with a
team that was decimated by
graduation.
"It's going to be a tough


year for us. I lost eight
seniors and a pitcher last
year," she said.
The good news, she said, is
that several promising new-
comers are on the squad.
We have a few younger
players that are showing
great skill levels already, and
we will have three returning
players to helpiIead the
way," she said.

Poinciana girls upend


No.5 Nature Coast;


Darters turn OHS blue


By Ken Jackson
Staff Writer
Osceola played a regional
baslktball playoff game Thurs-
day night for the ninth year in
a row. Poinciana appeared in
one for the first time since
2001.
Maybe experience isn't all
it's cracked up to be.
The Eagles, after a two-
hour bus ride to Brooksville,
upended Nature Coast,
ranked No. 5 in the final Class
4A state poll, 50-46 in over-
time.
Meanwhile, in the friendly
confines of Kowboy Gym,
Apopka overcame 21
turnovers by forcing the Kow-
girls into 23 of their own and
beat the hosts, 47-41, in a 6A
Region 2 contest.
Poinciana (25-3) faced a
familiar height disadvantage,
but forced the Sharks (23-6)
to settle for outside shots
instead of driving to the hoop.
The Eagles never trailed.
"They really showed com-
posure for never being in this
position before, even though
we got killed on the boards
again," said PHS Coach
Jamerson Jones. "We got
the lead early-, which I
thought was important, and
if we make a couple more
lay-ups in the fourth quarter
we could have put the game
away. We must like making
things hard on ourselves,
although we may have been
a little out of gas at the end."
Stetson-bound senior Lyllique
Roman scored 19 points,
including five of the Eagles'
eight in the extra session. Bian-
ca Toro added 13 and point
guard Yashira Delgado scored
eight points and added six
assists and five steals.
Nature Coast center Share-
ka Maner was unstoppable
early, tallying 17 points and


16 rebounds, but she fouled
out.
"I was playing with all
guards at the end, my for-
wards fouled out," Jones
said. "Both sides were in foul,
trouble."
By virtue of the first
regional basketball victory
(boys or girls) in school histo-
ry, the Eagles will visit Bish-
op Moore on Tuesday. Two
of PHS' three losses this year
came against the Hornets,
including a 59-47 defeat in
last week's ,4A District 7
championship.
"It's hard to beat a team
three times," Jones said. "And
we'll go in there with nothing
to lose. Both sides know what
they're getting."
Apopka, the District 6A-5
runner-up, ended Osceola's
season at 25-3. The Blue
Darters (17-9) move on to the
regional semifinals Tuesday at
Edgewater.
Apopka ,turned a close
game into a 14-point lead
with a 16-0 run spanning the
second and third quarters.
Osceola clawed back and tied
the game, only to watch the
Blue Darters slam the door
shut with less than five min-
utes remaining.
"Apopka's a good team,
give them credit, and they
responded to our nerves and
our lack of experience com-
pared to them," OHS Coach
Barner Cooks said. "When
you're not scoring, you can't
let them score. There was a
stretch of four or five minutes
in the third quarter we
couldn't score and couldn't
hold them either. That's your
ballgame."
The teams traded buckets
through the first 12 minutes
and were tied at 18 when
Apopka started taking pris-
oners. In addition to Sherie
Howard, who played with

an ankle sprain suffered in
last week's 6A-6 tourna-
ment, forward Jami Chap-
pell dislocated a finger and
point guard Jessica Bravo
took a hard spill.
The two left the court and
the Blue Darters took advan-
tage of the lapse by scoring
the final nine points of the
second quarter and first
seven of the third quarter to
go up, 32-18. Senior Kourt-
nie Berry (game-high 19
points and five steals) scored
11 during that run.
The Kowgirls battled back
over the next six minutes to
tie it. Brittany Wells (eight
points, three assists) and


Bravo completed back-to-back
three-point plays, and center
Lisa Capellan (13 points, nine
rebounds) scored a pair of
buckets in the paint to narrow
the gap. Bravo knocked down
a pair of free throws at the
end of the third quarter to
make it 34-28 going to the
fourth quarter.
OHS opened the final
frame with a lay-up by Elsa
Figueroa and two more buck-
ets by Capellan to knot it at
34 with 4:57 left.
But the Blue Darters forced
three turnovers, two turning
into baskets by Cassie Berry,
as Apopka scored the next
eight points.

The ideal formula for
advancing through the region-
al basketball playoffs probably
isn't to shoot 11-of-43 from
the floor, or to get out-
rebounded 29-15.
But, if the scoreboard reads
33-26 in your favor at the
final buzzer, like it did for the
Heartland Christian girls
Thursday at the Warrior gym,
why argue?
The Lady Warriors had one
hot hand, center Jelisa Price,
who scored 19 points, and
that was good enough to
throttle an equally cold-shoot-
ing Tampa 'Cambridge team
that hit just 25 percent from
the floor in the A Region 3
quarterfinal.
Heartland (14-8), will host
Seffner Christian (14-10)
Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the
regional semifinal, two steps
away from the team's goal of
a Class A state tournament
berth.
Coach Bill Slovik said the
nine-day layoff between the
district and regional tourna-
ments wasn't the reason for
his team's lackluster shooting
performance. Subtract Price's
7-of-16 effort from the floor,
and the rest of the Warriors
were an abysmal 4-of-27 (15
percent).
"Sometimes we just don't
shoot," he said. "I don't know
what it is."
What the Warriors do,
however, is play a sticky,
harassing defense that befud-
dled the Lancers. Cambridge,
13-11; scored just five field
goals after the first quarter
when they led 10-6.
"We worked a lot on that. I
was happy with the way we
played our defense. I saw us
do things we didn't do all sea-


son," Slovik said. "[Cam-
bridge] would get down the
floor and expect an open
shot, but we got back there
and got a hand in their face
and I think that surprised
them."
Heartland forced 21
turnovers and held Cambridge
to just 10-of-40 from the field.
But, Cambridge center Melis-
sa Olson had 19 rebounds to
give the Lancers plenty of sec-
ond looks.
"We didn't rebound
tonight," Slovik said.
Price had 10 of Heartland's
14 halftime points, when the
Warriors led 14-12.
"I told the girls at halftime
that we only had one foul on
that team. I told them I want-
ed three fouls in the first two
minutes of the second half,
and we got that, but then we
stopped doing it. I had to
remind them to keep it up,."
Slovik said.
Heartland got into the
bonus early in the final period
and scored nine of its last 11
from the free throw line.
Price said that she has
played better games this sea-
son, but that she was happy
with her performance.
"I knew it was an important
one and I had to be mentally
ready," she said.
Slovik said he sometimes has
to remind Price to step up.
"She has so much talent,
but she doesn't want the
attention. She wants to stay in
the background," he said.
Price picked a good game
to be the feature player on a
night when talented playmak-
er Bekah Day, like most of her
teammates, wasn't finding the
net. Day scored 7, including a
three-pointer to expand the

a ORLANDO 5

nond ,g4..EX


If the sight of Matthew
McConaughey barefoot and shirt-
less for most of a motion picture
drives you wild, then step right up
and get your ticket to the soggy
diving adventure Fool's Gold.
His beach bum persona gets
old, as does the rest of this lame
comedy-adventure also starring
Kate Hudson.
This is the second pairing of
McConaughey and Hudson who
appeared together in How to


Lose a Guy in 10 Days. This
time out the pair play a very
recently-divorced couple who are
obviously still very much in love.
But that is just the backdrop
for an even more predictable
story about a fabled treasure in
the Caribbean, lost in the sea dur-
ing the time of the 16th century
Spanish explorations.
There are a few laughs in
Fool's Gold, and most of them,
unfortunately, are the ones you


can see in those previews on line
or in commercial breaks..The rest
of the comedy in this weak adven-
ture is of the lamebrain variety,
especially the hijinx between the
various villains and our heroes,
which also includes a wasted (not
in the drug sense, well maybe in
the drug sense as well) Donald
Sutherland.
Sutherland plays a very rich
man, worth in the neighborhood
of $700 million. Hudson is in his


employ on his rather large yacht.
He also has a dimwitted and shal-
low daughter (Alexis Dziena), who
really serves no real purpose in,
this film other than to act unbe-,
lievably shallow and dimwitted.
The best scene, unfortunately,'.
is the opening one where-
McConaughey is diving with his
long-time working partner-
(played by Ewen Bremner) when:

We truly live in a land of giants
- at least in the universe.
Planet Earth is just a tiny frac-
tion of the size of some of its
celestial neighbors Jupiter, Sat-
urn, Neptune and Uranus.
The Giant Worlds are the
subject of the newest exhibit
coming to the Orlando Science
Center Feb.. 15.
In partnership with the Space
Science Institute (SSI), the
exhibit unlocks some of the mys-
teries of the outer solar system
with Giant Worlds: A Voyage to
the Outer Solar System. The sci-
ence center is the first stop on a
six-year national tour for this
new 3,500 square-foot interac-
tive exhibit. The exhibit will be
on display until May 9.
So much has been learned
about the giant worlds over the
past few decades, and the exhibit
puts it all into focus.
It wasn't that long ago that
Jupiter, a planet 318 times the
size of Earth, was thought to have
a dozen or so moons. With recent
planetary exploration, that num-
ber has swelled to 63 known
satellites. And some of those
moons, including Callisto and lo,

Western may have kept folks
out of the local cineplex.
There are definitely some
drawbacks to this sprawling
effort about the last days of
one of the most notorious fig-
ures in American history, but
the performances by Brad
Pitt as James and Casey
AfflecJ< as his assassin Ford,
are two definite reasons to
see this film, making it a wor-
thy edition to almost any
home video collection.
Pitt as James is detached
for most of the film. At times,
you might want to fantasize


to be a part of his gang, rid-
ing along on the final days of
the Wild West frontier. But
James is also a murderer, not
the man who was a myth
already in his day, regarded
by many people as a modern
Robin Hood.
It's Affleck who is the
scene-stealer for most of the
film; He plays a young guy
who wants badly to be part of
the James gang. When he
fails miserably at trying to
appeal to older brother Frank,
who threatens to shoot him
dead if he asks one more
question, he moves onto
Jesse. Jesse is more receptive
to the younger man's adora-
tion. Affleck, who almost
always comes off affable in his


screen roles (Good Will Hunt-
ing), shows a broader range
here as a likeable guy you just
might want to kill if you were
part of a gang.
He and his older brother
(played by Sam Rockwell)
soon find themselves as major
players in-the James Gang's
last train robbery because
almost all the rest of the veter-
an members have either
already been killed or are in
jail. Once just a bystander and
unabashed fan of the outlaw,
Ford and his brother are now
in the unenviable position of
being bodyguards to James,
who at this stage of his life is
extremely paranoid of every-
one around him.
The pacing sometimes is
slow throughout this Jesse
James film, but the grit and
grime and darkly lit scenes all
,seem real enough.
And the cinematography
ranks right up there with the
best you'll probably see in any


movie in 2007.
The end result is a mixed
bag of a film, featuring
some really good perfor-
mances in a story that prob-
ably would have benefited a
whole lot if it were about 20
'minutes shorter.

Women are from Venus,
but young troubled boys may
very well be from Mars, at,
least such is the premise in
Martian Child,' a tale about a
youngster who is pretty much
unadoptable until a single wid-
ower (John Cusack) takes a
shine to him.
Martian Child is full of
feel good moments, probably
too many and some come off
as being too calculated, but at
least this film, directed by
Menno Meyjes, doesn't ven-
ture too far off base and veer
into absurd sitcom territory.
Cusack, who co-stars with
big sister Joan, who also plays
his sister in the film, is David


Gordon,' a successful science
fiction writer who has a lot of
good things going on in his
life, but something is appar-
ently missing.
Back in the children's
home, young Dennis (Bobby
Coleman), has a whole lot
that is missing.
He spends much of his
daylight time in a large card-
board box, fearing the dam-
age to the rays of the sun can
do to his Martian skin and
eyes.
And while others have
gone running from the site of
the confused youngster (or is
he really from Mars?) David
feels strangely drawn and
compelled to take him home.
A lot of it has to do with
David's own past, since he
too was an outcast, and he
found solace in the heavens
and astronomy and science
fiction.

David is almost convinced
that not only is this kid some-
thing special, but maybe he
is from Mars (he seems to be
able to grant Martian wishes,
for one thing). But too fre-
quently, Martian Child has
more of a feeling of Kramer
vs. Kramer, without the
divorce, just the troubled, but
bonding relationship of a
father and son.
The ending, which
includes Anjelica Huston as a
book publisher, and a cliff-
hanging scene at a planetari-
um, is probably a bit much,
but it certainly is in keeping
with the overall feel-good
theme.
Despite the shortcomings,
Martian Child (rated PG) is
a good movie to watch with

Is Route 66 one of t1he
best TV series ever created?
You can judge for yourself
with the debut of Route 66:
Season One, Volume Two,
now available from Infinity
Entertainment.
This was an amazing
show, pretty advanced for


its time (it debuted in 1960-
61) and gave the fabled
American roadway a whole
new aura as well as a great
theme song.
Martin Milner and George
Maharis (Tod and Buz) were
the only recurring actors in
the series as two young guys
on the road with one pos-
session, a powder-blue (well
black and white in the
series) 1960 Corvette.
Well, actually, the high-
way was the third star on the
show, as they traveled the
road to adventure from
Chicago to Santa Monica,
Calif.

weight detective shows such
as 77 Sunset Strip or
Hawaiian Eye, Route 66
had intelligent scripts, often
written by Academy Award-
winning screenplay writer
Stirling Silliphant.
The 15-episode volume
two set includes lots of
familiar faces in guest star-
ring roles, something that
occurred throughout the
series, particularly since
every episode involved a
whole new cast except for
the two guys. That's Patty
McCormack, for example,
in the third episode on the
discs playing a runaway


teen. McCormack, best
known for her role as the
evil child in the classic camp
film The Bad Seed, is still
active in the business,
including a recent recurring
role on The Sopranos.
Look for McCormack in an
early scene and hit pause
and tell me she doesn't look
like Leonardo DiCaprio in
drag or, at the very least, his
twin sister.
Stuff like that is just one of
the joys of the DVD genera-
tion.

Through hands-on interac-

newest discoveries and stories of
the giant planets are brought to
life. The exhibition is geared
toward young people between
9- and 13-years-old, though vis-
itors of all ages find out lots of
things they never knew about
the planets.
The exhibition is linked to the
progress and discoveries of
NASA missions to the outer
planets, and it provides a real-life
context for learning about sci-
ence, math and technology.
Content includes some of the
finest images from Cassini and
other recent NASA missions.

beauty of these distant worlds
while exploring their atmos-

filled with hands-on experiences,
models and murals that reveal
the grandeur of these amazing

Visitors can learn about grav-

mass to the visitor's shadow and
demonstrates how particles,
such as those in Saturn's spec-
tacular ring system, interact
with the shadow. They can
design and launch a virtual
probe into Jupiter's crushing
atmosphere and see how far
their probe gets before it is
destroyed. Visitors can also

ADVISORY COMMISSION

SEEKS CITIZEN INPUT




The Charter Review Advisory Commission is looking for citizen input regarding the
Osceola County Home Rule Charter. If you would like to participate, please join us . .
February 11, 2008 6:30 p.m.
Osceola County Administration Building
4th Floor Commission Chamber

What is the Osceola County Home Rule Charter?
A charter is like a "mini-constitution" that defines the powers, duties and structures of
county government. In 1992, Osceola County citizens approved the Home Rule Charter
form of government because they believed that governmental decisions affecting local
interests should be made locally rather than the State Legislature. The Home Rule
Charter established the Commission/County Manager form of government. Under this
form, the Board of County Commissioners appoints a manager, attorney and auditor
who serve at its pleasure. The county manager has power to hire and fire department
heads and is also responsible for formulating an annual budget, approved by the
Commission, The attorney provides legal counsel for the Board and the auditor
provides reports and analysis to the Commission on a variety of financial matters.

What are the duties of the Charter Review Advisory Commission?
In order to ensure this form of government is working for the betterment of citizens, a
group of 11 citizens is appointed by the County Commission every four years to review
the Home Rule Charter. These citizens, known as the Charter, Review Advisory
Commission, have been meeting for the past year, looking at how Osceola County
Government operates, conducting interviews and formulating recommendations for
changes needed to the Home Rule Charter. This will be the first of two public hearings
to seek input from citizens.

What issues have been identified for further study?
After completing a series of interviews, the Charter Review Advisory Commission has
identified the following six issues for further study:
* Should the charter limit contributions to political campaigns?
* Should the charter permit county ordinances to prevail over conflicting municipal
ordinances?
* Should the charter include additional local ethics requirements?
* Should the charter provide for non-partisan election of county commissioners?
* Should the county commission be expanded and include members elected at-
large and from single-member districts?
* Should the current restrictions on casino gambling be removed from the charter?

What issues will be addressed at the public hearing?
The Charter Review Advisory Commission is requesting input on the issues identified
for further study, as listed above, and any other areas of Osceola County's Home Rule
Charter you believe should be addressed. A second public hearing is currently
scheduled for April 7, 2008.

How can I review the current Home Rule Charter?
To review a copy of the current Home Rule Charter, log onto the County's website at
www.osceola.org and click on Charter Review Advisory Commission under the Hot
Topics section. You may also pick up a copy from the Clerk to the Board of County
Commissioners at the Osceola County Administration Building, 1 Courthouse Square,
Suite 4400.
