See story, page A-2. By Sam Gilkey For The News-Gazette At 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing more than 200 pounds, Ken For d, of St. Cloud, is a big man who carves small things. The 81-year-old Ford has been doing wood carving for 10 years. He will be entering three of his recent carvings in the Osceola County Fair this month. Ford and his wife of 60 years, Rosemarie, spend six months of the year in Hamilton, N.Y., and the other six months in St. Cloud. I got interested in woodcarving after working 55 years, he said. I was a repairman for the phone company and then dr ove a school bus. I joined a club in New York and got some ideas from the members as well as from a magazine on woodcarving. I must have done over a hundred carvings. I have tried to start a local club in St. Cloud, but so far I havent found anybody who is interested. So Ford sits down at a table from time to time and in a matter of hours, or days, or weeks takes a picture or idea in his head and uses a collection of knives to turn out fish, birds, spoons or something new. I cant really say how long it takes to finish a piece, he said, looking at part of theCarving out his nicheSee Woodcarver, page A-3 Here are some wooden spoons Ken Ford has carved from scrap wood.News-Gazette Photos/Sam GilkeyK en Ford, 81, of St.Cloud, will be entering his woodcarvings in the Osceola County F air which runs F r ida y Feb.11, through Sunday, Feb.20.Ford is sho wn here working on some small figurines.Among his entries to the fair this year will be a birdhouse, a fish and a Santa Claus figure By Peter Covino Ent er t ainment Edit or Dont be chicken. Satur day is the time to head on over to Osceola Countys newest bar becue event the Kiss My Ribs barbecue competition at the Pioneer V illage. This is a brand new event, Philip Jackson, spokesman for the Osceola County Historical Society, said. Barbecue has always been a big part of the history of the county, Jackson said, given its ranching history. The Kiss My Ribs event will celebrate that heritage, Jackson said. The free event (there is a See Barbecue, page A-3 Kiss My Ribs at Pioneer Village By Fallan Patterson S taff Writer A partnership between the Osceola County School District and the Early Lear ning Coalition of Osceola County looks to foster a lifetime love of reading and increase literacy rates in prekindergartners as well as rope parents into the activities. With the implementation of several reading-themed programs through the countys voluntary pre-kindergarten classes, officials hope building excitement for reading will carry the children throughout school and beyond. Events like the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom concert and book signing Jan. 29 serve as a backdrop to serve both students and parents through the partnership. Our partnership has been strong for the last 10 years, Susan Sunka, executive director for the Early Learning Coalition, said. Its about raising the bar. While 29 percent of county voluntary pre-kindergarten (VPK) students are in public programs and monitored by Carol Quick, coordinator of the districts Osceola Center for Early Learning, the remainder are enrolled in private, faith-based Love of reading See Reading, page A-3 By Fallan Patterson Staff Writer The groundhog may have pr edicted an early spring but plants have been in bloom for months at the St. Cloud Community Gar den. On the for mer site of a now-demolished drug house behind St. Cloud City Hall, leeks, cabbage, swiss chard and collards have pushed through the dirt and spread their delicious leaves despite the below freezing temperatur es experienced this winter. This is Osceola County. Weve got to bring farming back, with an updated twist, Jacquie Dombovy, one of thr ee city of St. Cloud Parks and Recreation Beautification Division employees who works in the garden, said. We want to teach people and empower them to grow their own food. The garden is funded through the Parks and Recreation Departments operating budget on property the city had pr eviously pur chased. Most resources we already had on hand, Kim Duffy, landscape beautification manager, said. We just did some juggling. The community garden is unlike similar garden projects used for educational purposes for local students the city man ages at Peghorn Nature Center and Hopkins Park. Three elements of the community garden aim to bring residents together, provide exercise and recreation and offer residents a way to grow healthy vegetables and herbs themselves. Its also an opportunity for residents living in apartments and homeowners associations to engage in gar dening. The first element, available to all r esidents free, is the edible culinary herb landscaping plant ed at the front entrance. The more you chop them, the better they grow. Duffy said. Another complimentary feature, geared toward those residents wanting to ease into gardening, Dombovy said, is the container swap.

books, the container swap allows residents to take a container home to raise a plant and then swap it out for another plant later. The final feature 25-squarefoot garden plots allows residents to choose what plants they want to grow and care for by weeding, fertilizing and harvesting any edible plants. Once you taste your homegrown food, it makes it more difficult to buy it, Duffy said. The plots, which cost $25 for six months and includes two harvests, come with everything but the seeds or plants. Gardeners also are solely responsible for weeding and watering. An equipment shed on the property provides gardeners with the tools they may need. Dombovy plans to incorporate several classes through the gar den, including cooking, preserving and canning vegetables as well as instructions on fertilizing, such as using wor ms, and pollination by planting sweet-smelling plants to attract bees and ladybugs. W e want to educate people on how to use (the plants) as well, she said. Duffy and Dombovy will help gardeners select the pr oper vegetables and herbs for the season, such as tomatoes, cucumbers and peas for spring, and encourage gardeners to swap their harvests to get a lit tle bit of everything. If your e willing to put a lit tle bit of work into it, its so r ewar ding. The food tastes bet ter (than store-bought), Dom bovy said. You cant get any better than that. People with out experience shouldnt be afraid to give it a go. Dombovy said in addition to offering a local food source, the garden also beautifies the town, provides educational opportunities and gets young people outside and into the dirt. Engaging young people in the garden is part of Duffys plan. The minute you put a trowel in their hands and some seeds they seems to get a charge out of watching broccoli grow and are more likely to eat it, she said. Well get them off the computer and into the Earth. City officials plan to finalize the garden contracts this month. Residents seeking additional information and who want to sign up for a plot can contact the city at 407957-7243. GardenContinued from page A-1 The groundbreaking for St. Anthony Garden Courts, a low-income senior housing project on the site of the former Hamilton Park in St. Cloud, will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday. The housing project, a collaboration between Osceola County government and Catholic Charities of Central Florida using $7 million in federal Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds, will be built north of 5th Street and west of Brown Chapel Road. The 51unit development will be for lowincome seniors age 55 and older. The complex will feature oneand two-bedroom rental units and will have a community center for recreational activities.Support services will be available on an as-needed basis, including limited healthcare, a 24-hour nurse call system, food and benefits assistance. During the ground breaking, Bishop John Noonan, of the Orlando diocese, will bless the project and Arne Nelson, president and CEO for Catholic Charities of Central Florida, as well as city of St. Cloud and Osceola County officials, will be present. Catholic Charities is partnering with JPH & Associates, Fugleberg Koch, Walker & Company and SPM on the project. St. Anthony Garden Courts will be located close to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church and St. Thomas Aquinas Medical Clinic, another of Catholic Charities of Central Floridas programs, according to project officials. Catholic Charities of Central Florida developed and operates a similar facility, St. Joseph Garden Courts, in East Orlando, for low-income seniors. There is great need for developments of this kind. It is imperative that we reach out to our senior population.It is our moral obligation, Nelson stated in a press release. We are grateful to Osceola County and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development for choosing Catholic Charities of Central Florida to develop and operate this critical project.A T&T stor e broken intoOsceola County Sheriffs Office detectives are asking for the publics help in locating four burglary suspects related to a Feb. 6 break-in shortly after midnight at the AT&T stor e, 4769 W U.S. Highway 192, Kissimmee.

collection. I work on them when I have some free time. You cant really put a price on what I do, so I dont sell any of them. However, its not hard to find someone who would like to have an item or two. We have four children, 13 grandkids and a lot of nice neighbors who I give them to, he said. At this years fair, Ford has decided to enter a Santa Claus figure, a small house and some fish. He has been displaying some of his work for the past five years and has come away with at least one blue ribbon each year. By definition, Ford said, woodcarving is done by hand. So, does he ever cut himself? Oh yes, he said with a smile. Every woodcarver carries bandages in his tool box. But Ive never been seriously cut. You always try not to get blood on the wood. Its r eally hard to remove. The wood Ford works with comes from a variety of places and he said he is always picking up something that he may be able to use. Pieces of walnut and basswood came from trees in the backyard of his New York home. A few items are painted, but most of the finished products are sprayed with a clear lacquer to preserve the natural color. He likes doing the small spoons, called Welsh love spoons, and has a number of them in his collection. The spoons were traditionally given to a young woman by her suitor so that the family could see that the young man was a capable woodcarver who could take care of her and the family. Ford said he did not do many of the spoons in the past year and, as a result, has nothing new to enter in this years fair. He also has started working with glass and is turning out some interesting pieces using discarded bottles. When you see him, ask how he is able to put a wooden arrow through a small hole in the bottle. But he may want to keep that trick of the trade a secret for now. charge to sample the various food offerings) features a barbecue competition with the help of the Mosquito County Barbecue Society, which includes some of Osceola Countys premier barbecue chefs. The Mosquito County Barbecue Society participates in several events in the county each year, including the Smokin Blues Bikes and BBQ event in St. Cloud each spring and the Historical Societys Pioneer Days, which is held at the Pioneer Village in November. But the Pioneer Village firsttime event features more than just finger-licking barbecue, Jackson said. The historical society will honor the lateEugene Mr. Gene Daniel, known for being one of the finest pit barbecuers in this region, and the most revered and respected barbecuer of Kissimmees barbecue culture. Mr. Gene had a colorful history, Jackson said. He was born in Blakely, Ga., in 1905, Jackson said. He settled in Osceola County in 1925, and worked for a local fruit company for 30 years. It was during this time he honed his barbecue skills on Friday and Saturday nights providing takeout barbecue fr om his simple wooden building situated under a huge mulberry tree with an old brick pit out back, Jackson said. Because of Mr. Genes personal character coupled with his master pit skills, people both black and white came from all over to enjoy his incredible barbecue and homemade sweet potato pie. The barbecue event will fea ture an exhibit on Daniel and members of his family also ar e expected to attend. Teams competing in the barbecue competition include: Balfour Beatty, Big Boys Bangn Barbeque, Dantes Inferno, Eventual Porkcrastinators, Fat Daddys, High on the Hog BBQ, Hog Jims BBQ, Kiss-Me-Butts, Low Down BBQ, Pond Water Boys and Smittys Barbeque. The judged competition includes monetary prizes and awards. In addition to all that barbecue, the day-long event also includes an exhibit at the Historical Society museum, original paintings by Floridas African-American landscape artists known as The Highwaymen. During the 1950s through the 1960s, a group of African American artists painted and sold landscape paintings out of the trunks of their cars at nominal cost to tourists and other interested people along Floridas well-traveled roads. They bucked a system that, at the time, provided no outlets for African-American artists in the galleries and other venues of exposure. Over the years, these artists produced more than 200,000 paintings, all having a distinctly recognizable style. Now highly valued and respected, it wasnt until 1995, however, that this group and style of painting came to be called the Highwaymen, by Florida art collector and museum curator Jim Fitch in an article he wr ote (Painting Florida) for Antiques and Art Around Florida. Also at the museum at 2 p.m., guest speaker, Ben Brotemarkle, of the Florida Historical Society, will talk about The African American Experience in Florida. Music is another event highlight with entertainment throughout the day. The lineup includes: gospel soloist Tamara McDuf fie; The Front Por ch Pickers, a bluegrass group; and Harvestime Ministries; and the New Hope Adult Choir. Admission to Kiss My Ribsis freeand is being sponsor ed in part by United Arts of Central Florida as a pr ogram of ArtsFest 2011. The event is fr om 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Food and beverage is a separate char ge and will be posted by the various barbecue vendors on site. The Pioneer Village is at 750 N. Bass Road.

Through the partnership, all students are exposed to programs such as the Reading for Kindergarten program partnership with Disney where Belle, from Beauty and the Beast, makes appearances at VPK classrooms for story time. VPK students and their parents also can partake in the Read and Rise program, which helps parents emphasize cultural references and everyday moments like cooking dinner as teaching opportunities. Reading Buddies allows the children to create a stuffed pal with an outfit and a name and sign a contract with their parents to read daily. Many of the programs encourage parent involvement to emphasize reading and discourage the barrage of technological devices children are constantly exposed to, such as handheld video games, cell phones and computers. Were losing a lot of opportunities for parents to r ead to their children (because of technology) on a daily basis, Quick said. Quick emphasizes parents should be reading to their children or having the child read at least one book a day. Its the strongest predictor for children becoming strong readers, she said. It can be such a special time for both the parent and the child, something they can look forward to. For the Chicka Chicka Boom Boom event, VPK teachers encouraged the 4year-old VPK students curiosity for reading by explaining what an author does, reading the book and having the children create trees for the coconut grove described in the book. The colorful art projects, made with the students handprints for leaves and decorated with letters, served as backdrops to the concert where the books author, John Archambault, sang songs and signed the 250 books provided to concert attendees.

OPINIONOPINIONOsceola County administration officials working to implement new policies and procedures for acquiring rights of way for road projects as discussed at the County Commission retreat of Jan. 31 is a step in the right direction to controlling costs in this area. Granted, the county is never going to completely avoid going to court and using eminent domain to obtain right of way from unwilling sellers for road projects that benefit the public good, but the new procedures and policies, we expect, could help the county to only buy the minimum right of way that is needed for projects (this keeps valuable land on the tax rolls) and could help avoid costly litigation that, if it goes on too long, can waste taxpayer money. What is distressing is that at a recent workshop on the right of way issue, county officials stated that county construction projects managed by former county employees showcased poor reporting skills and accountability. That might be true up to a point, be were not convinced that former employees were totally to blame. The sheer number of right of way parcels that county staff had to deal with to accomplish the various fast-tracked road projects started or completed over the last five years may have contributed to the problem. County commissioners were the ones pushing to reduce the time for getting road projects from the drawing board to the construction phase. Not getting road projects started was one of the reasons a former county manager several years ago was let go. Plus, right of way purchases and settlements are approved by the commission. T o current County Manager Don Fishers credit, he recommended an independent audit of the process and under the new procedures, Fisher and the county engineer would be held accountable and would be part of a six-person team dealing with right of way acquisition. That team also would include the countys Public Works administrator, an appraiser and the acquisition agent. W e also like County Commissioner Fred Hawkins Jr.s suggesting that the county should find a way to fast-track property purchases from r esidents willing to settle. The bottom line is that the slower construction schedule brought on by the recession and budget shortfalls has a silver lining: time to assess how we acquired right of way in the past.

I am surprised at the way politeness has been replaced by sarcasm and respectfulness of anothers opinion no longer exists. Being civil to one another will require all of us to examine our speech. Are we tolerant of anothers opinion? Free speech dictates that we must be, as intolerance causes fear and fear causes silence. Are we polite in our speech? Free speech also dictates that we be thoughtful about our words. W e are responsible for what we say and the way we say it, even when we are anonymous on the Internet. If we want to keep our freedom and our country, we need to take responsibility for our words. Lets start with civility at home and carry it around with us.Donna Hart St. CloudStop anonymous bloggingTo the editor:Since the issue of civility seems to be front and center right now, I think there is a related issue to civility that is staying under the radar screen, primari ly because many would rather not go there. Why? Because theyre having too much fun. What is it? Its anonymous blogging. It allows individuals to make all kinds of slanderous and nasty statements, especially about people in positions of authority, without any pr oof whatsoever as to the truthfulness of their accusations. Its as if the American value of "a person has a right to know his accuser" has totally disappeared from our value system. Granted, there are a few times when its necessary for an accuser to stay anonymous, such as when life, limb or family would be put in jeopardy, but those situations are few and far between. I once knew a young lady who reported her neighbor to Children and Family Services because she witnessed her neighbor abusing her two children. After the call to Family Services, she immediately called her neighbor and let her know what she had just done. As hard as it was for her to make that call to the neighbor, she was taught that her neighbor had a right to know who her accuser was. Maybe Im naive, but I think thats an American value that we as individuals should hold dear. And as tempting as it may be to go on those blogs and anonymously lash out at those to whom we disagree, we need to face up to the reality that its the cowardice found in our dark side that compels us to take that r oute. Just as some of us have had to quit smoking, drinking or eating too much because it was bad for our health, some of us need to stop the anonymous blogging for the same reasons. Its bad for our individual spiritual health and the spiritual health of our nation.Martha Anderson KissimmeeThings always changeT o the editor: This is in regard to Tony Ferentinos recent comments. If anything, the economy has taught us never will it be business as usual again. People will either adapt and tough it out or go by the wayside. Thus, it has always been throughout history. No guarantees except death and taxes. I thought thats supposed to be good for us separates the boys from the men. Personally, I see no problem in St. Cloud or Kissimmee with tent sales or street vendors if common sense is used in drafting an ordinance. Certainly no vendor should be able to operate directly in front of a same type business. The only thing I see here is established businesses not wanting to see residents spend what little money they have at any place but their own. Left with little or no options, who is that really good for? The consumer gains with competition, plain and simple. Without that, they get the short end of the stick. Personally I have no problem with any type of tent sales or shows in town. People are not forced to patronize them. As long as they are properly licensed, why not? No matter local business or tent sales, the mantra of caveat emptor remains. Isnt that the way capitalism is? Unemployment and food stamp use can be blamed on many factors, not just the above listed issues. While they ar e part of the equation, they are miniscule when compared to the big picture. Any nation that loses its manufacturing base has no real wealth. Wages become stagnant and the only winners are the multinational corporations that put profits over the interests of its nations people period. William C.

The revised high school grading formula now includes multiple components: FCA T performance in reading, math, writing, and science; College Readiness in reading and math, as measured by SAT/ACT/CPT; Participation and performance in rigorous courses, including Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, International Baccalaureate, and Industry Certification classes; and Overall Graduation Rate and At-Risk Graduation Rate. This new measure is more representative of how all students at our high schools are performing; every student, Grades 9 12, is a factor in the high school grade. Highlights of the 2009/2010 school grades include: Celebration High improved from a D to an A. Poinciana High improved from an F to a B. Gateway High improved from a D to a B. Osceola High and St. Cloud High improved from a C to a B. New Dimensions improved from a B to an A. Harmony High maintained a B. Professional/Technical High School (PATHS) and The Osceola County School for the Arts maintained As. Overall, FCAT points increased for all high schools. Graduation rates increased in all high schools. Osceola School Districts graduation rate improved from 79.2 percent in 2008/2009 to 83.5 percent for the 2009/2010 school year. Osceola County also continues to have a lower dropout rate (1.4 percent) than the state average (2.0 percent.) Participation in rigorous courses increased in all high schools. Congratulations to all teachers, support staff, and administrators on the exciting news of the high school grades and graduation rates. W e are seeing the results of very hard work, as well as a collective focus on students and their individual success, said Superintendent Dr Michael A. Grego. Our teachers and administrators are working tirelessly together to share best practices and raise student performance. These impressive grades clearly show that Osceola County students are successfully competing with students throughout the state of Florida and the nation.

During a house party Oct. 9, 2009, at 104 Alameda Drive in Buenaventura Lakes, deputies responded to calls at ar ound 11:30 p.m. about a large fight.

Sophomor e Sam Rooks soft floating shot over the head of Tavares goalie Michael Perry was just enough to send Celebration on to the next round as the Storm downed the Bulldogs for the third time, 1-0. Tonight, it only took one and we made it hold, Machuca said. W e had to keep them away, we did. But lucky for us, this wasnt a beauty pageant. It was just enough. Celebration (15-1-3) now moves to Fridays Region 2 final, the round it fell in last year to eventual state champ Mitchell, and by the luck of the draw will host its third district runner-up. Land OLakes Sunlake, a 2-1 winner over Pasco on Tuesday, comes calling out of District 8 at 7 p.m. Rooks, who was called up fr om the JV team right before the district tour nament, stepped up and made his big play in the 46th minute with the Storms biggest of fensive thr eats watching helplessly. Center midfielder Santiago Echeverri is still serving a suspension for a red car d received in the District 6 championship, and forward James Anderson picked up two yellow cards in the first half to ear nan early seat. W eve put some great combinations together and we cr eated some chances that we just couldnt finish, Machuca said. And I have to credit their goalkeeper, who made some great saves. Celebration goalie John Birchall made a few huge saves himself to keep Tavares, 14-12-2, of f the board. He tur ned away a free kick from just outside the goalie area in the 28th minute, and directed his defenders wall into the right position to force another Bulldog attempt wide of the net seven minutes later to keep the game scoreless into halftime. Six minutes into the second half, Jose Perez brought the ball in on net, and when Perry came out of the net to defend him, he feathered a crossing pass to Rooks, the unexpected savior who lifted it softly into the net. This time of year, and in that situation, everybody has to step up and luckily guys like him did, Machuca said. Bir chall then made a diving stop of a Sam Martins shot three minutes later, then the whole defense converged on a pair of Tavares corner kicks two minutes apart late in the game. Sweeper Brian Santos made a crucial back save of the second with eight minutes left to seal the win. Machuca quickly turned his teams focus to Friday immediately after Tuesdays win. One game! he told his huddle, referring to what stands between them and the state tournament in Tampa. In a 6A region semifinal at Gateway, the Panthers (148-3) held a 2-1 halftime lead against West Orange before the Warriors scored four unanswer ed goals to win, 5-2. The Florida High School Athletic Association has released the tentative soccer districts for the next two years. Gateway and Liberty join Ocoee, West Orange, Olympia, Dr Phillips, Freedom and Cypress Creek in 5A District 5. Celebration, St. Cloud, Harmony and Osceola join East Ridge, South Lake and Lake Minneola in 4A-6. Poinciana plays with Crooms Academy, Trinity Pr ep, Bishop Moore, Lake Highland Prep and Orlando Jones in 2A-8. Schools may appeal their placement. SPORTS SPORTS Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/OsceolaNGSports By Ken Jackson Sports Writer Before the Lady Longhorns Class of 2011, there was a lack of girls soccer success at Harmony High. Then came a bunch of freshmen who turned it around and kick-started the fortunes of the program. Four years later that bunch is the backbone of a team preparing for the schools first state tournament appearance ina team sport in Harmonys seven-year history. The Longhorns (17-1) play Steinbrenner High of Lutz in a Class 4A semifinal at Pepin Stadium at the University of T ampa at 5:15 p.m. today. The 4A Final Four is a fitting culmination for eight seniors as many as six of them will start today who hope to win and play at 11 a.m. Satur day for a state championship. Midfielders Sam T ravis, Emily Johnson, Chelsea and Brittany Connor and defensive stopper Anna Blanchard ar e four -year starters. Goalie Kaylee Horn and forward Payton Leffew earned starting jobs their freshman year. Midfielder Natasha Cielak has been a key reserve in the program during that time. Their freshman year also happens to be when Coach Stephanie Jones, who had already accomplished a similar reclamation project at St. Cloud three years prior, took the reins and brought stability and a purpose. In the first year, the goal was to have a winning r ecord. They went 9-6-2. As sophomores, they wanted to beat rival St. Cloud. They conquered the Bulldogs on the way to their first Orange Belt Conference title. Last year, the Longhorns won for the first time in the district and regional playoffs. Now, Jones stands with her whole program the veterans and the freshmen and sophomor es whove been key components to a team that has outscored opponents 905 with that rare chance to win it all. It doesnt get any better for a coach than to watch a group come up who set goals every year and works so hard to make them, Jones said.All that weve been through together makes this so special. Ive never seen a mor e deter mined team. Their heart and determination have taken us this far. All that determination took the Longhor ns to W esley Chapel on Friday for the Region 2 final, wher e Har mony used a series of cor ner kicks which Jones admitted wasnt the teams str ongest suit to defeat W iregrass Ranch (22-3-2), 4-0, and punch their ticket to Tampa. Har mony scored first in the 10th minute when sophomore Kaley Ward sent the first corner kick of the game into the box that was headed into goal by Leffew on the rebound. Five minutes later, W ard sent another corner to Lady Longhorns go for Class 4A soccer crown 67 from county at wrestling regionals A Date at StateCelebration soccer player Jhesu Pardo de Figueroa (3) heads the ball away from T avares Hayden Smith during the Storms1-0 Class 4ARegion 2 semifinal victory Tuesday at Storm field.

weight class advanced to Fridays 2A-2 regional at South Florida Community College Friday and Saturday. Poinciana High qualifiers at the A-7 district tournament advanced to the A-2 regional at Lakeland Tenoroc Friday. A record total of 67 Osceola County wrestlers advanced. Nine OHS wrestlers won district championships and 12 reached the finals last week. The district champs are E.J. Jimenez (119), Tim Locksmith (125), Alex Rivera (130), Wade Ridings (135), Paul Zupofska (140), Pete Baldwin (145), Chris Pagan (171), Jhalen Flanders (189) and Trevor Darnell (285). Runners-up include Cody Dana (112), Kenny Martin (152) and Spencer Lacey (160). Ben Cruz (215) was third. Everybody wrestled well. It was one of those things that when you get on a roll, everyone feeds off of it, Kowboys Coach Jim Bird, who took the team to the 2009 state championship, said. Defending state champion Brandon leads the way into the regional tournament. The Eagles won 14 district championships last week and are the favorites to win the regional and state titles. Thats nothing new. Brandon is going to do what it always does, Bird said. By winning nine championships last week, weve set ourselves up pretty well. If we wrestle the way we wrestled last week, well be happy with our r esults. Gateway Coach Jon Smorin saw 12 wrestlers advance to the regional tournament, led by district champion Alex Velez (112), who is 42-5. Bryan Rosa (125) was a runner-up, while Gateways Kris Mora (119), Carlos Arango (103), Christian Vazquez (152), Austin Seward (130) and Giovanni Sanchez (135) qualified in third place. Fourth were Wyatt Seward (140), Ben Colon (215), Josh Pizarro (171), Victor Rodriguez (160) and Berlin Henri (285). Celebration (169.5) and Liberty tied for second place behind Oviedo (255) at the 2A-5 tournament at St. Cloud. Harmony (147.5) was fourth and host St. Cloud (75) was fifth. Celebration like Osceola, advanced a school-record 13 wrestlers to the regional tournament led by 119-pound champion Josh Douglas. Cameron Ward (189), Brandon Harris (215) and Alvaro Norena (heavyweight) all reached the finals, placing second. Third for Celebration were Hector Almedina (130), J.J. Francis (145), Justin Temple (160) and Curtis Temple (171). Qualifying in fourth place were Gio Mercado (112), Edwin Baez (125), Skylar Lerner (135), Everett Suarez (140) and Tyler Phelan (152). It was a great team effort, Storm Coach Vic Lorenzano said. Liberty sent a schoolrecord 10 wrestlers to the r egional tournament, led by district champs Felix Betancourt (130), Josh Garcia (152) and Aric Fernandez (189). The Chargers had three runners-up in Corey Grey (125), J.J. Elisis (160) and Freddy Ruiz (171), while three mor e Char gers placed thir d: Robert T orr es (103), Manny Figueroa (135) and Joel Martinez (215). Heavyweight Vlad Pena finished fourth. We wrestled tough and won the matches we needed to win, Coach Chris Kelly said. Regionals will be the most grueling challenge of the year. Our focus is getting as many guys as we can through to state and win some medals once we get there. Harmony boasted four district champions at the 2A-5 tournament including Chris Grillo (145) who won for the fourth time. Joining him with gold medals are Ariel Dominguez (130), Matt Vaughan (135) and Joey Finneran (140). Grillo is seeking his third state appearance. Coach Chris Todd said nine of his wrestlers advanced. Harmonys Justin Owens (112) was third and Alex Githens (160), Rey Almonte (171), Alex Calderon (189) and Andrew Davis (215) were fourth. Nine overall isnt bad, but I think we could have done a better job of wining some of our placing matches in the consolations. Todd said. That would have helped our kids out more at regionals. St. Cloud will send Joe McGinley (2nd, 112), Tyler Miller (4th, 103), Riley Fertic (4th, 119), Ryan Finneran (3rd, 140), Hunter Raddatz (3rd, 152) and Sam Thompson (3rd, 189) to the regional meet. Poincianas Jerry Bazilme (3rd, 130), Donaldo Nava (3rd, 189), Alex Ball (3rd, 215) and Cameron Alcome (4th, 285) all advanced.WrestlersContinued from page A-8 Thursday, February 10, 2011 Online All The Time www.aroundosceola.com NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A9 M.Badar Anwer,M.D.Gastroenterology,Hepatology,Therapeutic & Biliary Endoscopy Diagnostic & Interventional Endoscopic UltrasoundM.

the back post, where Sage Leffew, Paytons freshman sister, deflected it into the net. Early in the second half W ar d, who scored directly off a corner kick in last weeks r egional semifinal win over Eustis, did it again when the ball caromed of f the crossbar and the Wiregrass goalie and acr oss the goal line. Sophomore Kendall Pollock added an insurance goal with 14 minutes left, r ocketing a free kick from 40 yards out into the top of the net. Jones said her team rose to the occasion in the pr ograms biggest game to date. W e played a very good game, we challenged every ball and mentally left no doubt fr om the opening minute, she said. They came ready to play. Anna had a phenomenal game, our defense shut them down. And Kaylee made a couple stops on shots wher e if they get goals, it changes the whole game. Steinbr enner (19-2-2), which in just its second year of existence but has won the 4A9 district title each year is in much the same mold as Harmony in being stingy on defense. The Warriors have posted 18 shutouts and have outscor ed opponents 102-11. Junior Cici Gonzalez is the top offensive threat, with 33 goals and 33 assists. Sophomor e Alexis Bredeau (24 goals, 12 assists) and fr eshman Danielle Eule (11, 12) complement her. Jones said creating matchups wont be as much of the game plan as managing the teams emotions. W e have focus points for every match, but what concer ns me mor e is that we play our game, she said. W e talked this week in practice that we could go into in one of thr ee ways. The first is that we go in thinking wer e better than we are, and the kids said thats not the case. The second is that we go in satisfied with what weve done, and they dont feel that way either. The last is that we go in nervous about playing well, and I told them that nerves ar ea good thing. Heck, Im nervous.StateContinued from page A-8By Ken Jackson Sports Writer Poinciana will host a r egional quarterfinal game for the second straight year when Gainesville Eastside comes to Mike Brizendine Gym tonight at 7 p.m. The Eagles (23-2) earned the right with a 55-44 win over Harmony in the 4A District 6 championship on Saturday at Celebration High. The Longhorns (15-7) also return to the regional playoffs, as they travel to 4A-5 champion Leesburg tonight. Poinciana got a balanced attack Saturday 17 points from Geri Navarro, 15 from Tralonie Tisdale and 13 from Kadesia Johnson as they led the Longhorns from tip to buzzer. Poinciana shot to an early seven-point lead which stayed mostly intact until early in the fourth quarter, when the Longhorns briefly pulled within four at 40-36 with seven minutes left. It was a good game, of course, Harmony made their run at the end before we made one to finish it, PHS Coach Jamerson Jones said. We just played solid, and the difference was our execution at the end. I credit Harmony because they fought hard. We missed some easy shots, so theres room for improvement. The Eagles registered the first back-to-back district championships in any team sport in school history, which extends 20 years, but Jones said his team needs to look forward. I dont think about the past too much. Its good to get our name out there, and we know were making history and that were blessed, but everybodys playing for today and that one goal, which is getting to Lakeland. Jones said playing Eastside will be much like looking in the mirror. Theyre going to be quick and they press, just like us, he said. Harmony, which also played Poinciana tough (4641) in the regular season, has the tougher of tonights two tests. The Yellow Jackets are a favorite to make the 4A Final Four. The Longhorns, with three freshmen (Julia Ingler, Becca Fitzpatrick, Ragen Dotson) starting alongside juniors Nia Frederick and Marie Gilbert, are something of a surprise regional qualifier. We knew Poinciana would be the team to beat, but we also knew we had talent coming in and that No. 2 spot gave us a chance to be in the playoffs, HHS Coach Paul Strauch said. Now, if you told me wed have two good chances to beat Poinciana, thatd be optimistic. Strauch said that being young is not an excuse to back down. Playing Leesburg is an awesome opportunity, he said. Everybodys a solid team at this point, and were not afraid to play anybody.

The new playground will now pr ovide for more than 900 children annually by the branch, 2411 Dyer Blvd. Its really fun, said 13-year-old Emil, of Kissimmee, a Kissimmee club member, who helped volunteer. It makes me feel like part of something. Club officials requested that the boys last name not be used for privacy concerns. The day kicked off at about 9:30 a.m. with the crowd of volunteers doing a number of tasks. Some hauled and spread mulch, some worked in groups to place playground pieces, while others mixed cement. Backed by a deejay, who spun hits from musical acts like The Black-Eyed Peas and Kool & the Gang, some volunteers danced and sang to the beats, even when carrying material. Its all about having a good time, KaBoom! Senior Project Manager Caleb Marshall said. The nonprofit company has built more than 200 playgrounds across the country and the club playground was the second in the Orlando area. It looks at middleto low-income areas when making recommendations on where to build a playground. The Kissimmee playground design was based on drawings by children in the club who of fered their written suggestions in December. We used the drawings to configure that design, so they ar e seeing their dreams come true, Marshall said. And with the children involved, the playground will likely be better maintained because it was something they were part of, Marshall noted. For the club, the playground was a blessing, Gary Cain, Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida president, said. Its important for children to get outside and play, Cain said. It stimulates the imagination and it helps with their social development. And with child obesity a top problem with youngsters currently, Cain said the playground gets them moving and they dont even know that they are exercising. W e need to do everything we can to encourage our kids to be outside, he said. According to the KaBoom! website, the national nonprofit is dedicated to saving play for Americas children. The mission is to cr eate great playspaces through the participation and leadership of communities. For the last five years, it has partnered with jetBlue. This was the 10th playground built fr om the partnership, with the airline company suppling the majority of funding. Its about giving back to the community, said Warren Christie, vice-president of jetBlue University. The company is based in New York, but has about 1,200 crew members based in Orlando. We consider Orlando our home away from home, Christie said. Volunteers from the airline, the city of Kissimmee, the Osceola County Sheriffs Office and parents of the children all worked hand-in-hand to get the job done. This really does epitomize community, Cain said. It really is raising that spirit to come together .Volunteers flood local club to build playground News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanMore than 200 volunteers helped to build the KaBoom! playground Feb. 3 at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Central Florida Tupperware Brands Branch, in Kissimmee.

Half of all U.S. home heating fires occur in December, January and February. Thats accor ding to the National Fir e Protection Associations Home Fir es Involving Heating Equipment report, which shows that heating equipment is a leading cause of win ter fires. In fact, heating equipment was involved in an estimated 66,100 r eported home structure fires in 2008, causing 480 civilian deaths, 1,660 civilian injuries, and $1.1 billion in direct property damage. The association and the U.S. Fir e Administration are working together to remind people that home fires are more prevalent in winter than in any other season. For more information about the or ganizations joint safety campaign, Put a Fr eeze on Winter Fires, and a complete list of winter safety tips, visit http://www.nfpa.org/winter W inter fires ar e highly preventable, Lor raine Carli, the associations vice pr esident of communications, said, Every tragic news story about a devastating winter fir e is a r eminder that simple precautions can prevent deadly consequences. Space heaters resulted in far more fires and fire fatalities than central heating devices. Between 2004 and 2008, fixed (stationary) and portable space heaters (excluding fir eplaces, chimneys and chimney connectors, but including wood stoves) annually accounted for, on average, one-thir d of reported U.S. home heating fir es and four out of five associated civilian deaths. One in four heating equipment fir es started due to a failure to clean equipment.

What happens when I miss a mortgage payment? How does mortgage foreclosure work? What are my alternatives? The presentation will also include a panel of attorneys pr ovided by the Central Florida Real Estate Council. The for eclosure-prevention workshop is part of a series produced by ORRA, which was awarded a $5,000 grant from the National Association of Realtors in support of the program. BriefsContinued from Page C-1 If youre among the millions of American homeowners whove decided sprucing up the home you have is more cost-effective than moving into something newer or bigger, you may be looking for some easy ways to improve your living space. If youre not a seasoned doit-yourselfer, you could consider calling in the professionals but that would fly in the face of your efforts at frugality. Transforming a room from floor-to-ceiling isnt as hard as it may sound, even if youre do it yourself-challenged. The job can be simple if you start from the ground and work your way up with these easy tasks:Floors with flairLook down. Whats on the floor under your feet? Are you happy with what you see? If youre living with stained carpet, shabby vinyl or hardwood that has seen better days, its time to make a change. If you were a do-it-yourself diva, you could refinish those hardwoods, lay some new carpet or rip out that vinyl with your bare hands. But if youre a home improvement newbie, you can change the look of your floor with a lot less effort and skill. Cover up crummy carpet with colorful area rugs and strategically arranged furnishings. Mask that vinyl that is so last-decade with easy-toinstall, self-stick carpet tiles or vinyl tiles. Refinishing a hardwood floor may be beyond your skills, but virtually everyone can wield a paint brush and roller. Simply paint tired wood floors in a neutral color brown, tan, khaki or even white to create a fresh-looking foundation for your room decor.Walls that wowPainting is one of the easiest ways to freshen up a room, and painting walls really requires no special skills.

Ken Ford, 81, of St. Cloud, will be entering his woodcarvings in the Osceola
County Fair, which runs Friday, Feb. 11, through Sunday, Feb. 20. Ford is
shown here working on some small figurines. Among his entries to the fair
this year will be a birdhouse, a fish and a Santa Claus figure.


Carving out his niche

By Sam Gilkey
For The News-Gazette


At 6 feet 2 inches tall and weighing more
than 200 pounds, Ken
Ford, of St. Cloud, is a
.big man who carves
small things. .
The 81-year-old Ford 0 ,
has been doing wood- J
carving for 10 years. He
will be entering three of
his recent carvings in the
Osceola County Fair this month.
Ford and his wife of 60 years, Rosemarie,
spend six months of the year in Hamilton,
N.Y., and the other six months in St. Cloud.
"I got interested in woodcarving after
working 55 years," he said. "I was a repair-
man for the phone company and then drove
a school bus."
"I joined a club in New York and got some
ideas from the members as well as from a
magazine on woodcarving. I must have done
over a hundred carvings. I have tried to start

a local club in St. Cloud, but so far I haven't
found anybody who is interested."
So Ford sits down at a table from time to
time and in a matter of hours, or days, or
weeks takes a picture or idea in his head and
uses a collection of knives to turn out fish,
birds, spoons or something new.
"I can't really say how long it takes to fin-
ish a piece," he said, looking at part of the

behind St. Cloud City Hall,
leeks, cabbage, swiss chard

through the dirt and spread
their delicious leaves despite
the below freezing tempera-

The garden
is funded
through the
Parks and

Department's operating budget
on property the city had previ-
ously purchased.
"Most resources we already
had on hand," Kim Duffy,
landscape beautification man-
ager, said. "We just did some
juggling."
The community garden is
unlike similar garden projects
used for educational purposes
for local students the city man-
ages at Peghorn Nature Center
and Hopkins Park.
Three elements of the com-
munity garden aim to bring res-
idents together, provide exercise
and recreation and offer resi-


dents a way to grow healthy
vegetables and herbs them-
selves. It's also an opportunity
for residents living in apart-
ments and homeowners associ-
ations to engage in gardening.
The first element, available to
all residents free, is the edible
culinary herb landscaping plant-
ed at the front entrance.

Bishop to attend groundbreaking


The groundbreaking for St. Antho-
ny Garden Courts, a low-income sen-
ior housing project on the site of the
former Hamilton Park in St. Cloud,
will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
The housing project, a collaboration
between Osceola County government
and Catholic Charities of Central Flori-
da using $7 million in federal Neigh-
borhood Stabilization Program funds,
will be built north of 5th Street and
west of Brown Chapel Road. The 51-
unit development will be for low-
income seniors age 55 and older.
The complex will feature one- and
two-bedroom rental units and will have
a community center for recreational
activities. Support services will be avail-


able on an as-needed
basis, including limited
healthcare, a 24-hour .
nurse call system, food "
and benefits assistance.
During the ground
breaking, Bishop John
Noonan, of the Orlan-
do diocese, will bless Noonan
the project and Arne Nelson, presi-
dent and CEO for Catholic Charities
of Central Florida, as well as city of St.
Cloud and Osceola County officials,
will be present.
Catholic Charities is partnering with
JPH & Associates, Fugleberg Koch,
Walker & Company and SPM on the
project.


St. Anthony Garden Courts will be
located close to St. Thomas Aquinas
Catholic Church and St. Thomas
Aquinas Medical Clinic. another of
Catholic Charities of Central Flori-
da's programs, according to project
officials.
Catholic Charities of Central Florida
developed and operates a similar facili-
ty. St. Joseph Garden Courts, in East
Orlando, for low-income seniors.
"There is great need for develop-
ments of this kind. It is imperative
that we reach out to our senior pop-
ulation. It is our moral obligation,"
Nelson stated in a press release. "We
are grateful to Osceola County and
the U.S. Department of Housing and

books, the container swap
allows residents to take a con-
tainer home to raise a plant and
then swap it out for another
plant later.
The final feature 25-square-
foot garden plots allows resi-
dents to choose what plants
they want to grow and care for
by weeding, fertilizing and har-
vesting any edible plants.
"Once you taste your home-
grown food, it makes it more dif-
ficult to bLt; it," Duffy said.
The plots, which cost $25
for six months and includes
two harvests, come with
everything but the seeds or
plants. Gardeners also are
solely responsible for weeding
and watering. An equipment
shed on the property provides
gardeners with the tools they
may need.
Dombovy plans to incorpo-
rate several classes through
the garden, including cooking,
preserving and canning veg-
etables as well as instructions
on fertilizing, such as using
worms, and pollination by
planting sweet-smelling plants
to attract bees and ladybugs.
"We want to educate people
on how to use (the plants) as
well," she said.
Duffy and Dombovy will
help gardeners select the prop-
er vegetables and herbs for the
season, such as tomatoes,
cucumbers and peas for spring,
and encourage gardeners to
swap their harvests to get a lit-
tle bit of everything.
"If you're willing to put a lit-
tle bit of work into it, it's so
rewarding. The food tastes bet-
ter (than store-bought)," Dom-
bovy said. "You can't get any
better than that. People with-
out experience shouldn't be
afraid to give it a go."

Engaging young people in
the garden is' part of Duffy's
plan.
"The minute you put a
trowel in their hands and
some seeds they seems to
get a charge out of watching
broccoli grow and are more
likely to eat it," she said.
"We'll get them off the com-
puter and into the Earth."
City officials plan to finalize
the garden contracts this
month. Residents seeking
additional information and
who want to sign up for a plot

when I have some free time.
You can't really put a price on
what I do, so I don't sell any of
them."
However, it's not hard to
find someone who would like
to have an item or two.
"We have four children, 13
grandkids and a lot of nice


neighbors who I give them to,"
he said.
At this year's fair, Ford has
decided to enter a Santa Claus

fish. He has been displaying
some of his work for the past

with at least one blue ribbon
each year.

By definition. Ford said,
woodcarving is done by
hand. So, does he ever cut
himself?
"Oh yes," he said with a
smile. "Every woodcarver
carries bandages in his tool
box. But I've never been seri-
ously cut. You always try not
to get blood on the wood. It's
really hard to remove."
The wood Ford works with
comes from a variety of


places and he said he is
always picking up something
that he may be able to use.
Pieces of walnut and bass-
wood came from trees in the
backyard of his New York
home.
A few items are painted,
but most of the finished
products are sprayed with a
clear lacquer to preserve the
natural color.
He likes doing the small


spoons, called Welsh love
spoons, and has a number of
them in his collection.
The spoons were tradi-
tionally given to a young
woman by her suitor so that
the family could see that the
young man was a capable
woodcarver who could take
care of her and the family.
Ford said he did not do
many of the spoons in the
past year and, as a result, has


nothing new to enter in this
year's fair.
He also has started work-
ing with glass and is turning
out some interesting pieces
using discarded bottles.
When you see him, ask
how he is able to put a wood-
en arrow through a small
hole in the bottle.
But he may want to keep
that trick of the trade a secret
for now.

of the Mosquito County Barbe-

some of Osceola County's pre-
mier barbecue chefs.
The Mosquito County Bar-
becue Society participates in
several events in the county
each year, including the Smokin
Blues Bikes and BBQ event in
St. Cloud each spring and the
Historical Society's Pioneer
Days, which is held at the Pio-
neer Village in November.
But the Pioneer Village first-
time event features more than
just finger-licking barbecue,
Jackson said.
The historical society will
honor the late Eugene "Mr.
Gene" Daniel, known for
being one of the finest pit bar-
becuers in this region, and the
most revered and respected
barbecuer of Kissimmee's bar-
becue culture.
Mr. Gene had a colorful his-
tory, Jackson said.
He was born in Blakely, Ga.,
in 1905, Jackson said. He set-
tled in Osceola County in 1925,
and worked for a local fruit
company for 30 years. It was
during this time he honed his
barbecue skills on Friday and
Saturday nights providing take-
out barbecue from his simple
wooden building situated under
a huge mulberry tree with an
old brick pit out back, Jackson
said. Because of Mr. Gene's
personal character coupled
with his master pit skills, people
- both black and white came
from all over to enjoy his incred-
ible barbecue and homemade
sweet potato pie.
The barbecue event will fea-
ture an exhibit on Daniel and
members of his family also are
expected to attend.
Teams competing in the
barbecue competition include:
Balfour Beatty, Big Boys
Bang'n Barbeque, Dante's
Inferno, Eventual Porkcrastina-
tors, Fat Daddy's, High on the
Hog BBQ, Hog Jim's BBQ,
Kiss-Me-Butts, Low Down

In addition to all that barbe-
cue, the day-long event also
includes an exhibit at the His-
torical Society museum, origi-
nal paintings by Florida's
African-American landscape
artists known as The High-
waymen.
During the 1950s through
the 1960s, a group of African
American artists painted and
sold landscape paintings out
of the trunks of their cars at
nominal cost to tourists and
other interested people along
Florida's well-traveled roads.
They bucked a system that, at
the time, provided no outlets
for African-American artists in
the galleries and other venues
of exposure.
Over the years, these artists
produced more than 200,000
paintings, all having a distinct-
ly recognizable style. Now
highly valued and respected, it
wasn't until 1995, however,
that this group and style of
painting came to be called the
"Highwaymen," by Florida art
collector and museum curator
Jim Fitch in an article he
wrote ("Painting Florida") for
Antiques and Art Around
Florida.
Also at the museum at 2
p.m., guest speaker, Ben
Brotemarkle, of the Florida
Historical Society, will talk
about "The African American
Experience in Florida."
Music is another event high-
light with entertainment
throughout the day. The lineup
includes: gospel soloist Tamara
McDuffie; The Front Porch
Pickers, a bluegrass group; and
Harvestime Ministries; and the
New Hope Adult Choir.
Admission to Kiss My
Ribs is free and is being spon-
sored in part by United Arts of
Central Florida as a program
of ArtsFest 2011. The event is
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Food
and beverage is a separate
charge and will be posted by
the various barbecue vendors
on site.

mee. For more information,

"We're losing a lot of


opportunities for parents to
read to their children (because
of technology) on a daily
basis," Quick said.
Quick emphasizes parents
should be reading to their chil-
dren or having the child read at
least one book a day.
"It's the strongest predictor
for children becoming strong
readers," she said. "It can be
such a special time for both the

ects, made with the students'

It's a step in right direction


Osceola County administration officials work-
ing to implement new policies and procedures for
acquiring rights of way for road projects as dis-
cussed at the County Commission retreat of Jan.
31 is a step in the right direction to controlling
costs in this area.
Granted, the county is never going to com-
pletely avoid going to court and using eminent
domain to obtain right of way from unwilling sell-
ers for road projects that benefit the public good,
but the new procedures and policies, we expect,
could help the county to only buy the minimum
right of way that is needed for projects (this keeps
valuable land on the tax rolls) and could help avoid
costly litigation that, if it goes on too long, can
waste taxpayer money.
What is distressing is that at a recent workshop
on the right of way issue, county officials stated
that county construction projects managed by for-
mer county employees showcased poor reporting
skills and accountability. That might be true up to
a point, be we're not convinced that former
employees were totally to blame. The sheer num-
ber of right of way parcels that county staff had to
deal with to accomplish the various fast-tracked


road projects started or completed over the last
five years may have contributed to the problem.
County commissioners were the ones pushing
to reduce the time for getting road projects from
the drawing board to the construction phase. Not
getting road projects started was one of the rea-
sons a former county manager several years ago
was let go. Plus, right of way purchases and set-
tlements are approved by the commission.
To current County Manager Don Fisher's cred-
it, he recommended an independent audit of the
process and under the new procedures, Fisher
and the county engineer would be held account-
able and would be part of a six-person team deal-
ing with right of way acquisition. That team also
would include the county's Public Works adminis-
trator, an appraiser and the acquisition agent.
We also like County. Commissioner Fred
Hawkins Jr.'s suggesting that the county should
find a way to fast-track property purchases from
residents willing to settle.
The bottom line is that the slower construction
schedule brought on by the recession and budget
shortfalls has a silver lining: time to assess how we
acquired right of way in the past.

Civility at home
To the editor:
Since the president's
address in Arizona, I have been
listening to how people speak
to one another, not just politi-
cal figures, but in general.
I am surprised at the way
politeness has been replaced
by sarcasm and respectfulness
of another's opinion no longer
exists. Being civil to one anoth-
er will require all of us to 'xam-
ine our speech. Are we toler-
ant of another's opinion? Free
speech dictates that we must
be, as intolerance causes fear
and fear causes silence. Are we
polite in our speech? Free
speech also dictates that we be
thoughtful about our words.
We are responsible for what
we say and the way we say it,
even when we are anonymous
on the Internet.
If we want to keep our free-
dom and our country, we need
to take responsibility for our
words. Let's start with civility
at home and carry it around
with us.
Donna Hart

Stop anonymous
blogging
To the editor:
Since the issue of civility
seems to be front and center
right now, I think there is a relat-
ed issue to civility that is staying
under the radar screen, primari-
ly because many would rather
not go there. Why? Because
they're having too much fun.
What is it? It's anonymous
blogging. It allows individuals to
make all kinds of slanderous and
nasty statements, especially
about people in positions of
authority, without any proof
whatsoever as to the truthful-
ness of their accusations.


It's as if the American value
of "a person has a right to know
his accuser" has totally disap-
peared from our value system.
Granted, there are a few times
when it's necessary for an accus-
er to stay anonymous, such as
when life, limb or family would
be put in jeopardy, but those sit-
uations are few and far between.
I once knew a young lady
who reported her neighbor to
Children and Family Services
because she witnessed her
neighbor abusing her two chil-
dren. After the call to Family
Services, she immediately called
her neighbor and let her know
what she had just done. As hard
as it was for her to make that
call to the neighbor, she was
taught that her neighbor had a
right to know who her accuser
was.
Maybe I'm naive, but I think
that's an American value that
we as individuals should hold
dear. And as tempting as it may
be to go on those blogs and
anonymously lash out at those
to whom we disagree, we need
to face up to the reality that it's
the cowardice found in our dark
side that compels us to take that
route.
Just as some of us have had
to quit smoking, drinking or
eating too much because it was
bad for our health, some of us
need to stop the anonymous
blogging for the same reasons.
It's bad for our individual spiri-
tual health and the spiritual
health of our nation.

Things always
change
To the editor:
This is in regard to Tony Fer-
entinos' recent comments.
If anything, the economy has


taught us never will it be busi-
ness as usual again. People will
either adapt and tough it out or
go by the wayside. Thus, it has
always been throughout history.
No guarantees except death
and taxes. I thought that's sup-
posed to be good for us sep-
arates the boys from the men.
Personally, I.see no problem
in St. Cloud or Kissimmee with
tent sales or street vendors if
common sense is used in draft-
ing an ordinance. Certainly no
vendor should be able to oper-
ate directly in front of a same
type business. The only thing I
see here is established business-
es not wanting to see residents
spend what little money they
have at any place but their own.
Left with little or no options,
who is that really good for? The
consumer gains with competi-
tion, plain and simple. Without
that, they get the short end of
the stick.
Personally I have no problem
with any type of tent sales or
shows in town. People are not
forced to patronize them. As
long as they are properly
licensed, why not?
No matter local business or
tent sales, the mantra of "caveat
emptor" remains. Isn't that the
way capitalism is?
Unemployment and food
stamp use can be blamed on
many factors, not just the above
listed issues. While they are part
of the equation, they are minis-
cule when compared to the big
picture. Any nation that loses its
manufacturing base has no real
wealth. Wages become stag-
nant and the only winners are
the multinational corporations
that put profits over the inter-
ests of its nation's people -
period.

Osceola School District's High School Grades
Under the new high school accountability system, all Osceola District high schools
earned an "A" or "B" for the 2009/2010 school year.
The revised high school grading formula now includes multiple components:
FCAT performance in reading, math, writing, and science;
College Readiness in reading and math, as measured by SAT/ACT/CPT;
Participation and performance in rigorous courses, including Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment,
International Baccalaureate, and Industry Certification classes; and
Overall Graduation Rate and At-Risk Graduation Rate.
This new measure is more representative of how all students at our high schools are performing; every
student, Grades 9- 12, is a factor in the high school grade.
Highlights of the 2009/2010 school grades include:
Celebration High improved from a "D" to an "A."
Poinciana High improved from an "F" to a "B."
Gateway High improved from a "D" to a "B."
Osceola High and St. Cloud High improved from a "C" to a "B."
New Dimensions improved from a "B" to an "A."
Harmony High maintained a "B."
Professional/Technical High School (PATHS) and The Osceola-County School for the Arts maintained "A's."
Overall, FCAT points increased for all high schools.
Graduation rates increased in all high schools. Osceola School District's graduation rate improved from
79.2 percent in 2008/2009 to 83.5 percent for the 2009/2010 school year. Osceola County also
continues to have a lower dropout rate (1.4 percent) than the state average (2.0 percent.)
Participation in rigorous courses increased in all high schools.
"Congratulations to all teachers, support staff, and administrators on the exciting news of the high school
grades and graduation rates. We are seeing the results of very hard work, as well as a collective focus on
students and their individual success," said Superintendent Dr. Michael A. Grego. "Our teachers and
administrators are working tirelessly together to share best practices and raise student performance.
These impressive grades clearly show that Osceola County students are successfully competing with students
throughout the state of Florida and the nation."


Student achievement Is Our Number one Priority!

and


boyfriend arrested
for child neglect
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office detectives Feb. 2
charged Wanda Ivette
Vazquez Medina, 31, Ricardo
Hernandez, 42, and Marisol
Vazquez, 32, with child neg-
lect and contributing to the
delinquency of a child. All
three suspects were picked
up by the U.S. Marshal's Ser-
vice in California.
The investigation began
Jan. 13 when detectives were
investigating David Vaughn
Joseph, 41, of 4636 W. U.S.
Highway 192, for lewd and
lascivious molestation. Detec-
tives found Marisol Vazquez
and her seven children ages
1, 4, 5, 9, 11, 14 and 17 -
while looking for Joseph at
the Fairwinds Motel in
Kissimmee. The two were
boyfriend and girlfriend. The
investigation revealed the
children had not been attend-
ing school. Joseph was not at
the motel.
After authorities visited the
motel, Vazquez-Medina and
her two children, ages 10 and
12, Hernandez and Marisol
Vazquez and her seven chil-
dren left the area and moved
to the Tampa area.
On Jan. 28, the Tampa
Police Department attempted
to contact the Vazquez sisters
and Hernandez. They found
one of the older children but
the adults and the other chil-
dren had moved out of the
area. Based on information
obtained by detectives, the
Vazquez sisters, Hernandez
and seven of the children
were found to be in Pasade-
na, Calif. The adults involved
will be extradited to Osceola
County on child neglect and
contributing to the delinquen-
cy of a minor charges,
according to Twis Lizasuain,
spokeswoman for the Sher-
iff's Office.
The Department of Chil-
dren and Families also is
working to bring the children
back to Central Florida.
On Feb. 2, detectives
again arrested Joseph, and
he faces 30 new counts of
child pornography. Joseph
was originally arrested Jan.
13 and charged with lewd
and lascivious conduct.
Detectives had obtained a
search warrant and took into
evidence Joseph's computer,
which revealed 30 child
pornography images.
The investigation began on
Jan. 13 when deputies took a
report of possible abuse from
an out-of-state complainant
who indicated Joseph was liv-
ing in Kissimmee.
In an attempt to locate
Joseph at the Fairwinds
Motel, Joseph's girlfriend
(Vasquez) and her seven chil-
dren were questioned. One of
the children, a 15-year-old,
told deputies that in Decem-
ber of last year Joseph
exposed himself. In addition,
deputies notified the Depart-
ment of Children and Fami-
lies after discovering the chil-
dren were not enrolled in
school.
Deputies located Joseph at
his residence and he was


taken to the Sheriff's Office
for questioning. Based on the
information provided by the
victim, Joseph was arrested
and booked into the Osceola
County Jail without bond.
Arrested for
contributing to the
delinquency of a
minor
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office detectives Feb. 1
arrested and charged Luis
Camacho, 51, of 8760 Tierra
Vista, Kissimmee, with trans-
mission of material harmful to
minors by electronic device,
certain uses of computer
device prohibited, contribut-
ing to the
delinquency of
a minor and to
offer or secure
another for a
lewd act.
The investi- .. /
gation began
Jan. 17 when Camacho
deputies took a report from
the Boston Police Depart-
ment that a 16-year-old victim
told them she was visiting rel-
atives in Kissimmee and was
approached for sexual acts by
Camacho.
According to the Sheriff's
Office report, the victim told
investigators Camacho was
chatting with her on the Inter-
net, sending her sexually
explicit messages and asking
her to perform sexual acts.
On one occasion, Camacho
offered or agreed to secure
another person for the victim
to have sex with in exchange
for having a sex act with him.
Camacho was brought in for
questioning and cooperated
with detectives. He was
booked into the Osceola
County Jail.
Teen pedestrian
killed Saturday night
Jean Cherilus, 17, of
Orlando, was struck and
killed Saturday night on State
Road 535 (Vineland Road),
south of Calypso Way, in
Osceola County, while he
was walking on the grass
shoulder area of the road-
way.
Richard Lawson, 52, of
Kissimmee, was driving the
2003 F150 pickup that hit
Cherilus and charges are
pending, according to the
highway patrol. Authorities
also are investigating whether
alcohol was a factor. Cherilus,
a student at Evans High
School in Orlando, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene at
about 9 p.m.
Lawson was heading south
on the state road when, for
an unknown reason, he
veered to the right in a south-
westerly direction, entering
into the west shoulder of the
roadway. Lawson's vehicle
continued traveling forward
on the west shoulder, striking
Cherilus. Due to the impact,

Cherilus was thrown forward
and came to rest in the right,
southbound lane of the road-
way.
After hitting the pedestrian,
Lawson's vehicle veered to the
left, entering back onto the
highway, causing the front,
left side of the vehicle to strike
the left, front side of a 2011
Nissan Altima driven by Luis
Sotto, 49, of Queens, N.Y.
Due to the impact, Lawson's
vehicle deflected to the right,
entering into a ditch on the
west shoulder of the roadway.
Lawson sustained minor
injuries in the crash while
Sotto was not injured.
Suspect charged
with October 2009
stabbing death
in BVL
Osceola County Sheriff's
Office deputies Monday
charged 22-year-old Ray
Andres Lopez, of 1740 Quail
Ridge Loop, Kissimmee, with
first-degree murder for his
involvement in a 2009 stabbing
homicide as he awaits trial in
the Osceola County Jail for
attempted murder.
During a
house party
Oct. 9, 2009,
at 104 Alame-
da Drive in
Buenaventura
Lakes, deputies
responded to
calls at around Lopez
11:30 p.m.
about a large fight. Upon
arrival, deputies located an
unresponsive male in the drive-
way. Deputies identified two
stabbing victims, Brandon
Knibbs, then 17, and Elmer
Ardon Jr.
Knibbs was taken to a local
hospital and treated for his
injuries.. Ardon, 18, was pro-
nounced dead at the scene.
The following day, detectives
arrested Lopez and charged
him with attempted murder for
stabbing Knibbs, who had
attended the house party. Since
the incident,' probable cause
was obtained from the investi-
gation, and as a result, Lopez
was charged with first-degree
murder in the death of Ardon.
"They can now take both
charges and put them togeth-
er," Twis Lizasuain, spokesper-
son for the Sheriff's Office,
said.
Detectives believe the
motive for the stabbing was a
fight that escalated, Lizasuain
said.
The homeowner, Maikel
Rodriguez, told deputies at the
time his daughter invited her
friends to the house and they
brought alcoholic beverages
with them. Deputies observed
open alcoholic containers in the
residence. Rodriguez was
charged with an open house
party and was booked into the
Osceola County Jail.
At. the time, a juvenile
attending the party was


arrested for violation of pro-
bation. In addition, Enroy
Grant was arrested when he
attempted to interfere with
the investigation. Grant was
charged with resisting with
violence, resisting without
violence, harm/threats to a
public servant and battery on
a law enforcement officer. He
was booked into the Osceola
County Jail.
No other suspects are being
sought in this case, Lizasuain
said.

horns Class of 2011, there
was a lack of girls soccer suc-
cess at Harmony High.
Then came a bunch of
freshmen who* turned it
around and kick-started the
fortunes of the program.
Four years later, that bunch
is the backbone of a team
preparing for the school's first
state tournament appearance
in a team sport in Harmony's
seven-year history. The Long-
horns (17-1) play Steinbren-
ner High of Lutz in a Class 4A
semifinal at Pepin Stadium at
the University of Tampa at
5:15 p.m. today.
The 4A Final Four is a fit-
ting culmination for eight
seniors as many as six of
them will start today who
hope to win and play at 11
a.m. Saturday for a state
championship.
Midfielders Sam Travis,
Emily Johnson, Chelsea and
Brittany Connor and defen-
sive stopper Anna Blanchard
are four-year starters. Goalie
Kaylee Horn and forward
Payton Leffew earned starting
jobs their freshman year. Mid-
fielder Natasha Cielak has
been a.key reserve in the pro-
gram during that time.
Their freshman year also
happens to be when Coach
Stephanie Jones, who had
already accomplished a simi-
lar reclamation project at St.
Cloud three years prior, took
the reins and' brought stability
and a purpose.
In the first year, the goal
was to have a winning record.
They went 9-6-2.
As sophomores, they
wanted to beat rival St. Cloud.
They conquered the Bulldogs
on the way to their first
Orange Belt Conference title.


Today
Ponte Vedra vs. Merritt
Island, 3 p.m.
Lutz Steinbrenner vs.
Harmony, 5:15 p.m.
Saturday
Championship, 11 a.m.
Admission: $8; Parking: $5

Last year, the Longhorns
won for the first time in the
district and regional playoffs.
Now, Jones stands with
her whole program the vet-
erans and the freshmen and
sophomores who've been key
components to a team that
has outscored opponents 90-
5 with that rare chance to
win it all.
"It doesn't get any better
for a coach than to watch a
group come up who set goals
every year and works so hard
to make them," Jones
said."All that we've been
through together makes this
so special. I've never seen a
more determined team. Their
heart and determination have
taken us this far."
All that determination took
the Longho: i r to Wesley
Chapel on Friday for the
Region 2 final; where Harmo-
ny used a series of corner
kicks which Jones admitted
wasn't the team's strongest
suit to defeat Wiregrass
Ranch (22-3-2), 4-0, and
punch their ticket to Tampa.
Harmony scored first in
the 10th minute when sopho-
more Kaley Ward sent the
first corner kick of the game
into the box that was headed
into goal by Leffew on the
rebound. Five minutes later,
Ward sent another corner to

Tuesday's 4A Region 2
boys soccer semifinal was
closer to zero on the 1-10
beauty scale, but now that
Celebration is just 80 minutes
away from the state tourna-
ment, Storm Coach Julio
Machuca doesn't care about
winning any pageants -
although he and his players do
want a crown.
Sophomore Sam Rooks'
soft floating shot over the
head of Tavares goalie
Michael Perry was just enough
to send Celebration on to the
next round as the Storm
downed the Bulldogs for the
third time, 1-0.
"Tonight, it only took one
and we made it hold," Machu-
ca said. "We had to keep them
away, we did. But lucky for us,
this wasn't a beauty pageant.
It was just enough."
Celebration (15-1-3) now
moves to Friday's Region 2
final, the round it fell in last
year to eventual state champ
Mitchell, and by the luck of the
draw will host its third district
runner-up. Land O'Lakes Sun-
lake, a 2-1 winner over Pasco
on Tuesday, comes calling out
of District 8 at 7 p.m.
Rooks, who was called up
from the JV team right before


the district tournament,
stepped up and made his big
play in the 46th minute with
the Storm's biggest offensive
threats watching helplessly.
Center midfielder Santiago
Echeverri is still serving a sus-
pension for a red card
received in the District 6
championship, and forward
James Anderson picked up
two yellow cards in the first
half to earn an early seat.
"We've put some great
combinations together and we
created some chances that we
just couldn't finish," Machuca
said. "And I have to credit
their goalkeeper, who made
some great saves."
Celebration goalie John
Birchall made a few huge
saves himself to keep Tavares,
14-12-2, off the board. He
turned away a free kick from
just outside the goalie area in
the 28th minute, and directed
his defenders' wall into the
right position to force another
Bulldog attempt wide of the
net seven minutes later to
keep the game scoreless into
halftime.
Six minutes into the second
half, Jose Perez brought the
ball in on net, and when Perry
came out of the net to defend
him, he feathered a crossing
pass to Rooks, the unexpect-


ed savior who lifted it softly
into the net.
"This time of year, and in
that situation, everybody has
to step up and luckily guys like
him did," Machuca said.
Birchall then made a diving
stop of a Sam Martins shot
three minutes later, then the
whole defense converged on a
pair of Tavares corner kicks
two minutes apart late in the
game. Sweeper Brian Santos
made a crucial back save of
the second with eight minutes
left to seal the win.
Machuca quickly turned his
team's focus to Friday imme-
diately after Tuesday's win.
"One game!" he told his
huddle, referring to what
stands between them and the
state tournament in Tampa.
In a 6A region semifinal at
Gateway, the Panthers (14-
8-3) held a 2-1 halftime lead

Almost its entire wrestling
roster advanced to Friday's
regional meet as the Osceola
Kowboys dominated the 3A
District 5 tournament at the
OHS gym.
The Kowboys (248.5) out-
distanced second-place Lake-
land (136) and four other
teams, including Gateway, in
defending its district champi-
onship. Thirteen Kowboys, a
school record, advanced.
The 3A-2 regional begins
Friday at noon at the OHS
gym and continues through
the championship round Sat-
urday at 6 p.m. The admis-
sion fee is $6 per session.
There is one session Friday
and two Saturday. The semifi-
nal round will begin at
approximately 9:30 a.m. Sat-
urday.
Wrestlers from St. Cloud,
Liberty, Celebration and Har-
mony competed at the 2A-5
tournament at St. Cloud Sat-
urday, where defending state
champion Oviedo won. The
top four wrestlers from each

weight class advanced to Fri-
day's 2A-2 regional at South
Florida Community College
Friday and Saturday.
Poinciana High qualifiers at
the A-7 district tournament
advanced to the A-2 regional
at Lakeland Tenoroc Friday.
A record total of 67 Osceo-
la County wrestlers advanced.
Nine OHS wrestlers won
district championships and 12
reached the finals last week.
The district champs are
E.J. Jimenez (119), Tim Lock-
smith (125), Alex Rivera
(130), Wade Ridings (135),
Paul Zupofska (140), Pete
Baldwin (145), Chris Pagan
(171), Jhalen Flanders (189)
and Trevor Darnell (285).
Runners-up include Cody
Dana (112), Kenny Martin
(152) and Spencer Lacey
(160). Ben Cruz (215) was
third.
"Everybody wrestled well. It
was one of those things that
when you get on a roll, every-
one feeds off of it," Kowboys
Coach Jim Bird, who took the
team to the 2009 state cham-
pionship, said.
Defending state champion
Brandon leads the way into
the regional tournament. The
Eagles won 14 district cham-
pionships last week and are
the favorites to win the region-
al and state titles.
"That's nothing new. Bran-
don is going to do what it
always does," Bird said. "By
winning nine championships
last week, we've set ourselves
up pretty well. If we wrestle
the way we wrestled last week,
we'll be happy with our
results."
Gateway Coach Jon
Smorin saw 12 wrestlers
advance to the regional tour-
nament, led by district cham-
pion Alex Velez (112), who is
42-5.
Bryan Rosa (125) was a
runner-up, while Gateway's
Kris Mora (119), Carlos


Arango (103). Christian
Vazquez (152). Austin Seward
(130) and Giovanni Sanchez
(135) qualified in third place.
Fourth were Wyatt Seward
(140), Ben Colon (215). Josh
Pizarro (171), Victor
Rodriguez (160) and Berlin
Henri (285).
Celebration (169.5) and
Liberty tied for second place
behind Oviedo (255) at the
2A-5 tournament at St.
Cloud. Harmony (147.5) was
fourth and host St. Cloud (75)
was fifth.
Celebration, like Osceola,
advanced a school-record 13
wrestlers to the regional tour-
nament led by 119-pound
champion Josh Douglas.
Cameron Ward (189),
Brandon Harris (215) and
Alvaro Norena (heavyweight)
all reached the finals, placing
second.
Third for Celebration were
Hector Almedina .(130), J.J.
Francis (145), Justin Temple
(160) and Curtis Temple
(171). Qualifying in fourth
place were Gio Mercado
(112), Edwin Baez (125), Sky-
lar Lerner (135), Everett
Suarez (140) and Tyler Phelan
(152).
"It was a great team effort,"
Storm Coach Vic Lorenzano
said.
Liberty sent a school-
record 10 wrestlers to the
regional tournament, led by
district champs Felix Betan-
court (130), Josh Garcia (152)
and Aric Fernandez (189).
The Chargers had three
runners-up in Corey Grey
(125), J.J. Elisis (160) and
Freddy Ruiz (171), while three
more Chargers placed third:
Robert Torres (103), Manny
Figueroa (135) and Joel Mar-
tinez (215). Heavyweight Vlad
Pena finished fourth.
"We wrestled tough and
won the matches we needed
to win," .Coach Chris Kelly
said. "Regionals will be the


most grueling challenge of the
year. Our focus is getting as
many guys as we can through
to state and win some medals
once we get there."
Harmony boasted four dis-
trict champions at the 2A-5
tournament including Chris
Grillo (145) who won for the
fourth time. Joining him with
gold medals are Ariel
Dominguez (130), Matt
Vaughan (135) and Joey
Finneran (140).
Grillo is seeking his third
state appearance.
Coach Chris Todd said nine
of his wrestlers advanced.
Harmony's Justin Owens
(112) was third and Alex
Githens (160), Rey Almonte
(171), Alex Calderon (189)


and Andrew Davis (215) were
fourth.
"Nine overall isn't bad, but
I think we could have done a
better job of wining some of
our placing matches in the
consolations." Todd said.
"That would have helped our
kids out more at regionals."
St. Cloud will send Joe
McGinley (2nd, 112), Tyler
Miller (4th, 103), Riley Fertic
(4th, 119), Ryan Finneran
(3rd, 140), Hunter Raddatz
(3rd. 152) and Sam Thomp-
son (3rd, 189) to the regional
meet.
Poinciana's Jerry Bazilme
(3rd, 130), Donaldo Nava
(3rd, 189), Alex Ball (3rd,
215) and Cameron Alcome
(4th, 285) all advanced.

Poinciana, Harmony girls basketball at regionals


By Ken Jackson
Sports Writer
Poinciana will host a
regional quarterfinal game for
the second straight year when
Gainesville Eastside comes to
Mike Brizendine Gym tonight
at 7 p.m.
The Eagles (23-2) earned
the right with a 55-44 win
over Harmony in the 4A Dis-
trict 6 championship on Satur-
day at C:l'-bra. ti.:ri High. The
Longhorns (15-7) also return
to the regional playoffs, as
they travel to 4A-5 champion
Leesburg tonight.
Poinciana got a balanced
attack Saturday 17 points
from Geri Navarro, 15 from
Tralonie Tisdale and 13 from
Kadesia Johnson as they
led the Longhorns from tip to
buzzer.
Poinciana shot to an early
seven-point lead which stayed
mostly intact until early in the
fourth quarter, when the
Longhorns briefly pulled with-
in four at 40-36 with seven
minutes left.
"It was a good game, of
course, Harmony made their
run at the end before we made
one to finish it," PHS Coach
Jamerson Jones said. "We just
played solid, and the differ-
ence was our execution at the


end. I credit Harmony
because they fought hard.
"We missed some easy shots,
so there's room for improve-
ment."
The Eagles registered the
first back-to-back district
championships in any team
sport in school history, which
extends 20 years, but Jones
said his team needs to look
forward.
"I don't think about the
past too much. It's good to get
our name out there, and we
know we're making history
and that we're blessed, but
everybody's playing for today
and that one goal, which is
getting to Lakeland."
Jones said playing Eastside
will be much like looking in
the mirror.
"They're going to be quick
and they press, just like us,"
he said.
Harmony, which also
played Poinciana tough (46-
41) in the regular season, has
the tougher of tonight's two
tests. The Yellow Jackets are a
favorite to make the 4A Final
Four.
The Longhorns, with three
freshmen (Julia Ingler, Becca
Fitzpatrick, Ragen Dotson)
starting alongside juniors Nia
Frederick and Marie Gilbert,


are something of a surprise
regional qualifier.
"We knew Poinciana would
be the team to beat, but we
also knew we had talent com-


ing in and that No. 2 spot
gave us a chance to be in the
playoffs," HHS Coach Paul
Strauch said. "Now, if you told
me we'd have two good


chances to beat Poinciana,
that'd be optimistic."
Strauch said that being
young is not an excuse to back
down.


"Playing Leesburg is an
awesome opportunity," he
said. "Everybody's a solid
team at this point, and we're
not afraid to play anybody."

the back post, where Sage
Leffew, Payton's freshman
sister, deflected it into the net.
Early in the second half
Ward, who scored directly off
a corner kick in last week's
regional semifinal win over
Eustis, did it again when the
ball caromed off the crossbar
and the Wiregrass goalie and
across the goal line.
Sophomore Kendall Pol-
lock added an insurance goal
with 14 minutes left, rocket-
ing a free kick from 40 yards
out into the top of the net.
Jones said her team rose to
the occasion in the program's
biggest game to date.
"We played a very good
game, we challenged every
ball and mentally left no doubt
from the opening minute,"
she said. "They came ready to
play. Anna had a phenomenal
game, our defense shut them
down. And Kaylee made a
couple stops on shots where if
they get goals, it changes the
whole game."

existence but has won the 4A-
9 district title each year, is in

Buffalo Hall of Famer Jim
Kelly says he threw up
before almost every game he
ever played. Kelly, the only
starting quarterback to lose
four Super Bowls (and his
Bills lost four in a row), says
his offensive linemen became
so superstitious before every
game that they wouldn't leave
the locker room until they
heard Kelly heave. So on
those rare occasions when he
didn't get nervous enough to
hurl, he used to go into the
bathroom and pretend just
to keep his linemen confident
and focused.
Football fans know that the
Pittsburgh Steelers hold the
record for most Super Bowl
victories with six. But as of the
conclusion of the 2010 regular
season, the Steelers also held
the mark for most division
titles since the 1970 merger -
a whopping 20 in 41 seasons.
And in 2010, more Steelers
merchandise was sold than
that of any other team, with
Dallas second and New
Orleans third. The top selling
item a Troy Polamalu jersey.
Polamalu was the only non-
quarterback among the top
eight jersey sales in 2010. By
the way, the Minnesota
Vikings have lost the most

mony in being stingy on
defense. The Warriors have
posted 18 shutouts and have
outscored opponents 102-11.
Junior Cici Gonzalez is the
top offensive threat, with 33
goals and 33 assists. Sopho-
more Alexis Bredeau (24
goals, 12 assists) and fresh-
man Danielle Eule (11, 12)
complement her.
Jones said creating
matchups won't be as much
of the game plan as managing
the team's emotions.
"We have focus points for
every match, but what con-
cerns me more is that we play
our game," she said. "We
talked this week in practice
that we could go into in one of
three ways.
"The first is that we go in
thinking we're better than we
are, and the kids said that's
not the case. The second is
that we go in satisfied with
what we've done, and they
don't feel that way either. The
last is that we go in nervous
about playing well, and I told
them that nerves are a good
thing. Heck, I'm nervous."

More than 200 volunteers helped to build the KaBoom! playground Feb. 3 at the Boys

& Girls Clubs of Central Florida Tupperware Brands Branch, in Kissimmee.


By Brian McBride
Associate Editor
The skies were overcast and gray, but the
atmosphere was alive and upbeat Feb. 3 as
more than 200 volunteers helped to build a
KaBOOM! playground for the Boys & Girls
Clubs of Central Florida Tupperware Brands
Branch.
The new playground will now provide for
more than 900 children annually by the
branch, 2411 Dyer Blvd.
"It's really fun, said 13-year-old Emil, of
Kissimmee, a Kissimmee club member, who
helped volunteer. "It makes me feel like part of
something."
Club officials requested that the boy's last
name not be used for privacy concerns.
The day kicked off at about 9:30 a.m. with
the crowd of volunteers doing a number of


tasks. Some hauled and spread mulch, some
worked in groups to place playground pieces,
while others mixed cement. Backed by a dee-
jay, who spun hits from musical acts like The
Black-Eyed Peas and Kool & the Gang, some
volunteers danced and sang to the beats, even
when carrying material.
"It's all about having a good time," KaBoom!
Senior Project Manager Caleb Marshall said.
The nonprofit company has built more than
200 playgrounds across the country and the club
playground was the second in the Orlando area.
It looks at middle- to low-income areas when
making recommendations on where to build a
playground.
The Kissimmee playground design was based
on drawings by children in the club who offered
their written suggestions in December.
"We used the drawings to configure that
design, so they are seeing their dreams come


true," Marshall said.
And with the children involved, the play-
grourd will likely be better maintained because it
was something they were part of, Marshall
noted.
For the club, the playground was a blessing,
Gary Cain, Boys & Girls Club of Central Florida
president, said.
"It's important for children to get outside and
play," Cain said. "It stimulates the imagination
and it helps with their social development."
And with child obesity a top problem with
youngsters currently, Cain said the playground
gets them moving and they don't even know
that they are exercising.
"We need to do everything we can to encour-
age our kids to be outside," he said.
According to the KaBoom! website, the
national nonprofit is dedicated to saving play for
America's children. The mission is to create


great playspaces through the participation and
leadership of communities.
For the last five years, it has partnered with
jetBlue. This was the 10th playground built
from the partnership, with the airline compa-
ny suppling the majority of funding.
"It's about giving back to the community,"
said Warren Christie, vice-president of jetBlue
University.
The company is based in New York, but has
about 1,200 crew members based in Orlando.
"We consider Orlando our home away from
home," Christie said.
Volunteers from the airline, the city of
Kissimmee, the Osceola County Sheriff's
Office and parents of the children all worked
hand-in-hand to get the job done.
"This really does epitomize community,"
Cain said. "It really is raising that spirit to
come together."


Poinciana art student's flag design

to fly proudly in Washington, D.C.


In celebration of Youth Art
Month in March, the Council
for Art Education sponsored a
contest for a student-designed
state "Youth Art Month" flag.
Each participating school dis-
trict had the opportunity to sub-
mit its top design to the state's
Youth Art Month coordinator.
Seven art supervisors from
across the state were brought
together to select the winning
design to represent the state,
which will be made into a flag
that will hang with other state
flags at national conferences and
in Washington, D.C.
The Osceola County School
District announced that the
design created by Poinciana
High School art student
Mereily Albarran has been cho-
sen to represent Florida, and
will be flown as the Florida flag
represented at the National
Flag event.
The flag will be flown at the
Youth Art Month event at the
Historic Postal Square Muse-
um in Washington the first
week in March and at the
Youth Art Month Museum
while at the 2011 National
Art Educator's Association
National Convention in Seat-
tle from March 18 20.

Kissimmee airport business

helps lung transplant patient


Kissimmee Gateway Airport
recently announced that its air-
port business, SunState Avia-
tion, helped an Angel Flight
complete its mission of deliver-
ing a woman in need of a lung
transplant from Ft. Lauderdale
to Gainesville on Jan. 28.
Angel Flight is a volunteer
organization of pilots that pro-
vides free air transportation for
any legitimate, charitable med-
ically-related need.
Mike Camelin with Sun-
State Aviation received a call
from Glen Huckeba, Kissim-
mee Gateway Airport's tower
chief controller, informing
Camelin of an Angel Flight
plane, enroute from Ft. Laud-
erdale to Gainesville with a
lung transplant patient, that
had lost its alternator and had
to land. The patient desper-
ately needed to get to
Gainesville, where she was
scheduled to undergo surgery
to receive a new lung. Sun-
State Aviation, a flight school,
had an instrument student
who was preparing to embark
on a dual cross-country
instructional flight to, of all
places, Gainesville. Pre-flight
inspection was complete, a
flight plan was filed and they
were almost ready to leave.
Camelin stopped the
pilots before they started the
engine and asked if they


could take the patient the
rest of the way to Gainesville.
The patient was promptly
transferred to their airplane,
the flight plan was amended
to let air traffic control know
this was a priority flight and
they left for Gainesville. The
patient safely reached her
destination to receive her life-
saving surgery.

Signature Promotions has chosen
to refer to itself as "The Name


Behind The Name In Front." The
clever moniker is stamped on its busi-
ness cards and stationery but Signa-
ture Promotions is much more than
that. They are faces behind the name
behind the name in front.
Wendy and Chris Farrell have been
Poinciana residents for 11 years. The
couple, from the United Kingdom orig-
inally, began Signature Promotions in
Lakeland, but moved the business to a
home-based one in 2003. It was an
easy transition since most of their cus-
tomers are in Poinciana and Osceola
County. Signature Promotions special-
izes in custom embroidery, screen print-
Sing, business str-ir.:'.nli, promotional
products and more, and expect more

tions. According to Wendy Farrell, "We
are more then just order-takers. We
offer business marketing solutions."

break ground on a Villa Milano Quick Delivery
Home, with completion anticipated in late
Spring 2011.
Bellaria is designed with lakes and ponds,
green space and a children's playground.

Stay safe from winter fires, Fire Protection Agency says


Half of all U.S. home heating fires occur in
December, January and February.
That's according to the National Fire Pro-
tection Association's Home Fires Involving
Heating Equipment report, which shows that
heating equipment is a leading cause of win-
ter fires. In fact, heating equipment was
involved in an estimated 66,100 reported
home structure fires in 2008, causing
480 civilian deaths, 1,660 civilian injuries,
and $1.1 billion in direct property damage.
The association and the U.S. Fire Admin-
istration are working together to remind peo-


ple that home fires are more prevalent in win-
ter than in any other season. For more infor-
mation about the organizations' joint safety
campaign, Put a Freeze on Winter Fires, and
a complete list of winter safety tips, visit
http://www.nfpa.org/winter.
"Winter fires are highly preventable," Lor-
raine Carli, the association's vice president of
communications, said, "Every tragic news
story about a devastating winter fire is a
reminder that simple precautions can prevent
deadly consequences."
Space heaters resulted in far more fires and

In almost all cases, the rate is based on a lock-in period of 30 to 60 days. Borrowers should review how the rates are calculated and inquire about additional closing costs, such as
appraisal fees and title searches. NA means rate quotes not available on survey date. Rates are based on a loan amount of $165,000 to $417,000 with a 20 percent down payment.

Little change in mortgages
By Marcie Geffner Bankrate.com


Mortgage interest rates did not move much from their previous level this week
as the strengthening U.S. stock market, climbing oil prices and concerns about
civil unrest in Egypt applied upward and downward pressure on home loans,
seemingly in equal measure.
The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 5 basis points this week, to
5.02 percent, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders.
A basis point is one-hundredth of 1 percentage point. The mortgages in this
week's survey had an average total of 0.4 discount and origination points. One
year ago, the mortgage index was 5.15 percent; four weeks ago, it was 4.94
percent.
The benchmark 15-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 1 basis point, to 4.29 percent.
The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage was unchanged, at 3.84 percent.
Rates mirror market
Neither the political turmoil nor economic conditions caused any Mg ups,


huge downs or wild swings in mortgage rates, yet volatility continued to be a
constant. Rates shifted frequently, though consistently within the range that
has set the upper and lower limits for the past few weeks, according to Alan
Rosenbaum, CEO of GuardHill Financial Corp. in New York City.
"When the stock market rallies, interest rates and mortgage rates go up, and
when we're concerned about Egypt and the stock market goes down, then in-
terest rates go down. A lot of the play this week has been following what's been
going on in the Middle East": he says.
Commuters surely have noticed higher gas prices at the pump, a result of
inflated oil prices, which can push rates up or down -- or up and down at the
same time.
"As oil (prices) get higher, that creates more inflation around the world and interest
rates go up. But when the price of oil goes up, sometimes that causes the stock
market to go down, which causes interest rates to go down," Rosenbaum says.


fire fatalities than central heating devices.
Between 2004 and 2008, fixed (stationary) and
portable space heaters (excluding fireplaces,
chimneys and chimney connectors, but including
wood stoves) annually accounted for, on average,
one-third of reported U.S. home heating fires
and four out of five associated civilian'deaths.
One in four heating equipment fires started
due to a failure to clean equipment. Other caus-
es include placing a heat source too close to
combustibles, and unclassified mechanical fail-

Mortgage tip:
Most inspectors cannot estimate prices for repairs, because inspectors are general-
ists. Inspectors can tell buyers the life expectancy of individual appliances and a
national average estimate for their repair and replacement costs.

Three easy home improvement tricks to do


If you're among the mil-
lions of American homeown-
ers who've decided sprucing
up the home you have is more
cost-effective than moving
into something newer or big-
ger, you may be looking for
some easy ways to improve
your living space.
If you're not a seasoned do-
it-yourselfer, you could consid-
er calling in the professionals
but that would fly in the face
of your efforts at frugality.
Transforming a room from
floor-to-ceiling isn't as hard as
it may sound, even if you're do
it yourself-challenged. The job
can be simple if you start from
the ground and work your way
up with these easy tasks:
Floors with flair
Look down. What's on the
floor under your feet? Are you
happy with what you see? If
you're living with stained car-
pet, shabby vinyl or hardwood
that has seen better days, it's
tme to make a change. If you
were a do-it-yourself diva, you
could refinish those hard-
woods, lay some new carpet
Ior rip out that vinyl with your
:bare hands. But if you're a
home improvement newbie,
you can change the look of

and skill.
Cover up crummy carpet
with colorful area rugs and
strategically arranged furnish-
ings. Mask that vinyl that is so
last-decade with easy-to-
install, self-stick carpet tiles or
vinyl tiles. Refinishing a hard-
wood floor may be beyond
your skills, but virtually every-
one can wield a paint brush
and roller. Simply paint tired
wood floors in a neutral color
- brown, tan, khaki or even
white to create a fresh-look-

ing foundation for your room
decor.
Walls that "wow"
Painting is one of the easi-
est ways to freshen up a
room, and painting walls real-
ly requires no special skills.
Pick a new color you love, or
simply freshen up the existing
color. Hit the paint store and
ask the staff there for some
tips on how to make the job
go smoothly. ,
Wallpaper is another great
way to revive a room's look,
but it's traditionally considered
a job requiring some sophisti-
cated home improvement
skills. Until now, that is.

Ceilings that snap
When was the last time you
looked up at your ceiling for
any reason other than to
change a light bulb? It's an
area of room decor that often
gets overlooked, but smart
interior designers know ceil-
ings have a big impact on how
a room looks and feels.
For your purposes, a little
color experimentation can
probably go a long way. For-
tunately, many paint stores
and home improvement ware-
houses now offer free
brochures and paint chips that
suggest subtle pairings of
appealing wall colors with
unexpected ceiling hues. Or, if
you prefer to play it safe, sim-
ply repaint the ceiling white -
it's one of the fastest, easiest
ways to make a room feel
bright and new.
