Cortner Editor The Osceola County Commission Monday r enamed the 33.6-acre WalkN-Sticks Park in Buenaventura Lakes as the 65th Infantry Veterans Park, honoring an all-volunteer U.S. Army regiment comprised of Puerto Ricans. The regiment, called the Borinqueneers, fought in World War 1, World W ar II and the Korean War. The group, which saw extensive combat during the Korean War, was started in 1899; it disbanded after the Korean War. A number of veterans who served in the r egiment in the Korean War or their descendants live in Osceola County. The approval of this resolution and the renaming of the Walk-N-Sticks to the 65th Infantry Veterans Park commemorates the efforts of Americans who have fought to preserve our liberty, and we are honored that many of them make Osceola County their home, Commissioner John Quiones, who is of Puerto Rican descent, said. Quiones pointed out that a number of people gathered in the commission chambers in support of the resolution renaming the park have close connections to the 65th Infantry: Julius Melendez, an Osceola County School Board member who r ecently returned from active military duty in Iraq, has a grandfather who is a 65th Infantry veteran; another veteran served with the U.S. Armys 3rd Infantry, which fought with the 65th Infantry in Korea; and another veteran served on a transport ship that took the infantry unit to Korea.

See story, page A-3. By Fallan Patterson St aff Writer Daniel Webster may be a newcomer to Congress but he has nearly thr ee decades of experience in the state Senate and plans to use it to serve his new constituents, including those in Osceola County. W ebsters district winds down the middle of the state and include parts of Lake, Marion and Orange counties and a sliver of Osceola, mainly Cele bration. However, Websters priorities include all Floridians and the nation in his quest to get the economy rolling and eliminate overspending; put people back to work and and keep relationships working among political parties. W e have to turn off the spigot of spending, Webster, R-Winter Park, said The process of borrowing and spending money we dont have is br oken. Last month, the national tr easury showed the nations debt at more than $14 trillion and Webster said the debt builds up by $250 billion a year in interest owed. It hurts our national security to keep spending like that, W ebster said. Its that kind of borrowing that is going to bankrupt our country. Webster is proposing rolling back spending to 2008 levels and institute a step process to budget properly or else futur e generations would inherit a for eclosed country.

By Fallan Patterson Staff Writer With thousands of Central Floridians struggling to pay for housing, utilities, food and other critical necessities, Heart of Florida United Way is helping qualified residents claim the Earned Income Tax Credit, which the organization said helps lift more children out of poverty than any other federal program. To ensure that residents receive the full amount they are entitled to, more than 30 free tax preparation sites are available around Central Florida until April 15 through a partnership with the IRS Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) and AARP Tax-Aide programs Osceola County has nine free tax sites, including one at the Osceola County Council on Aging, 700 Generation Point in Kissimmee, and the St. Cloud Senior Center, 3101 17th St. in St. Cloud. For individual site dates and times, visit www.hfuw.org. In its fourth year providing this service, Heart of Florida has expanded the program this year by five sites, including offering free tax preparation at the Valencia College Osceola Campus for the first time. Since beginning Feb. 1, the program has seen tremendous growth, Brittany Richards, senior manager of Community Investment for the agency, said. W eve had an excellent response, she said. Historically, the people who file early are looking to get their refund as soon as possible. This holds true for Kay Hays. She is unable to work and lives off a pension from a 25-year career in automobile manufacturing and Social Secu rity disability benefits. Hays and her half-sister, Dorothy Mills, 62, visited the Council on Agings free tax site Tuesday, the second time in two weeks because last week Hays, 63, was unable to item ize her deductions. While Mills said she did not earn enough last year to file a tax return, Hays expects a r efund this year and is trying to find a couple hundred dollars. The sisters, who moved to Kissimmee nine months ago fr om St. Augustine, live togeth er to pool their finances and hope the tax refund is the boost they need. Y ou cant beat the price, Mills joked about the service. Richards said it is families struggling in this economy who need this service the most, especially to ensure they qualify and receive their entitled amounts. The tax credits range from $457 to $5,666 for tax year 2011. EITC helps qualified families and individuals reduce debt, enroll in job training, save for a home, pay for car repairs or use in any way they see fit. Because people in need often file early and at great expense through commercial tax preparation services, United Way wants to spread the word that free help is available, Richards said. By filing returns at local VIT A sites, people r eceive 100 percent of their refunds for free, usually within 10 days or less. To qualify for EITC, recipients must have earned income at any time in 2010 and meet the guidelines for maximum income. In some cases, people may be able to claim up to $20,000 by re-filing tax returns for the past three years. Mor e than $1 billion has been claimed regionally between 2007-09, yet the Internal Revenue Service estimates that 25 percent of qualified residents failed to claim ETIC due to lack of awareness. With hundreds of thousands of Central Floridians eligible for the credit, the economic impact on individual lives and on the community is tremendous. Because of the continued economic recession, even more residents are likely to qualify for EITC this year who have never qualified for the tax credit before, United Way President/CEO Robert H. Brown said. An extra $5,666 can make a huge difference to a family thats dealing with job loss, foreclosure or other financial crises. And because most EITC dollars ar e spent right here in our local community, local merchants and businesses also benefit. Tax refunds also provide a significant boost to the Central Florida economy, where $422 million in refunds were distributed in 2009 alone throughout Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties. Reflecting growing community need, calls to United Way 2-1-1, a free, 24-hour crisis hotline and information and referral helpline, continued to break new records. More than 171,400 calls were received in 2010. Seventy-five percent were first-time callers, people who have never needed help before; and utility and housing assistance accounted for more than half of all calls. A growing number of people are hurting and they dont know where to turn, Richards said. Theyve exhausted savings, benefits and family generosity and many continue to face the frightening prospect of hunger and homelessness. The JPMorgan Chase Foundation, The Wachovia W ells Fargo Foundation and The Wal-Mart Foundation ar e providing additional support by sponsoring United Ways Prosperity Campaign, which promotes EITC and other resources that help families improve their financial stability.

According to police reports, officers arrived at Menchies Yogurt, 2617 W. Osceola Parkway, to investigate a suspicious incident.Upon arrival, officers met with the shift manager Chelsea Max Meltcher, who reported that when she went to the front of the store, she noticed a strange, strong smell that made her cough.Meltcher then observed that almost all of the customers were coughing. One of the customers fainted due to the smell, while another was transported to a local hospital due to the ef fects of the chemical, reports stated. Meltcher then evacuated the store. Neither customer suffered serious injuries. Upon viewing the surveillance video, officers observed thr ee Hispanic females dr essed in black and one His panic male dressed in a blue flannel long-sleeved jacket standing by the yogurt machines.One female used her hands and fingers to gestur ea spraying like motion and began to laugh, r eports stated. Another female sprayed an unknown chemical on the floor near the r egister counter.The male then sprayed an unknown chemical near the yogurt machines. The video shows customers immediately began coughing.The video shows one customer fall at the counter and the suspects laughing. Anyone with information about the suspects or the incident is asked to contact the Kissimmee Police Department at 407-846-3333, by e-mail at seeitsayit@kissimmee.org or Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS.Suspicious device at mobile home parkOsceola County Sheriffs Office deputies evacuated several mobile homes Monday after they observed what appeared to be a suspicious homemade device. At 9:42 a.m., deputies responded to the Windsor Mobile Home Park near Universal Drive in Kissimmee, and spoke with an individual who told deputies there was a suspicious device near the parking lot area.Deputies observed what appeared to be a small, homemade device.As a precaution, several mobile homes in the area wer e evacuated and the Orange County Sheriffs Office Bomb Squad was called to assist with the incident. After the bomb squad detonated the device, it was determined that it was not a safety concer n.During the investigation, a resident approached Osceola County deputies and indicated he had made the device as a power inverter.Based on that information, residents wer e allowed back in their homes.St. Cloud Tip-A-Cop set for SaturdayThe St. Cloud Police Department will participate in a Tip-A-Cop event Saturday fr om7 to 11 a.m. at the Koffee Kup, 1407 13th St., to help raise awareness and support for Special Olympics programs. Police Chief Pete Gauntlett, Deputy Chief Vinny Shepard and police personnel will assist Koffee Kup staff with breakfast. Tips received will benefit the nonprofit organization that provides sports training and competition for children and adults with intellectual disabilities. The police department also will have Special Olympics Law Enforcement Torch Run T-shirts and hats available for purchase. The event is open to the public. Police news the state, Webster said. Floridas unemployment rate for January was 12 percent and most of the counties in Websters district fair slightly higher, with Lake at 12.4 percent, Marion at 14.2 and Osceola at 12.8 percent. Orange County is just under the states average with 11.6 percent unemployment. Webster has begun a walking tour throughout his district, meeting with business people to discuss ways to produce more jobs. He said many business owners want government to step back and stop proposing policies that would affect their businesses and their hiring policies. In the end, I think government needs to get out of the way, Webster, the owner of an air conditioning business, said. If every small business in the country would add a job, it would cut the unemployment in half and lower the budget deficit. In the wake of the Arizona shootings last month, many politicians of the various parties have formed a more united front, such as sitting together for President Barack Obamas State of the Union Address Jan. 25, and Webster is no exception. He watched the address with Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz, D-Weston, to discuss issues and while they may not have agreed on all topics, Webster said the experience was important. I think youre going to see there can be civility. Theres going to be cooperation, he said. Im going to be a proponent of that.

OPINIONOPINIONKudos to the Osceola County Commission for renaming the 33.6-acre Walk-N-Sticks Park in Buenaventura Lakes as the 65th Infantry Veterans Park. The renaming honors an all-volunteer U.S. Army regiment called the Borinqueneers that was comprised of Puerto Ricans. The regiment, which formed in 1899 shortly after Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory, fought in World War 1, World War II and the Korean War before being disbanded. A number of veterans who served in the regiment during the Korean War or their descendants now call Osceola County and Central Florida home. There were several good reasons for renaming the park: first, Buenaventura Lakes has many residents of Puerto Rican descent; second, the name Walk-N-Sticks no longer has any r elevance to the community, in that it refers to the former golf course which no longer exists; and third, it is a fitting way to honor a group of patriots who served and died defending our country. The county several years ago decided to obtain various easements from the golf course owner with the intent of improving drainage in the area. County officials at the time found that the cost to obtain the remaining land for a park was minimal, and wisely decided to proceed with the acquisition. Park renovations and new amenities at the park then followed, as county budgets allowed. W eve said before that the county purchasing the park was a good move, given overflow use of the nearby Archie Gordon Park and the need for more open space in the community. What is important to remember is that Puerto Rican heritage and roots now run deep in our community it is just one aspect that adds to our unique diversity. What also is important to know about the 65th Infantry is that its members, while U.S. citizens, could not vote for president. These patriots essentially secondclass citizens fought and died for the liberty of all Americans. The county and residents of the Buenaventura Lakes will mark the grand re-opening of the r ecently-renovated park with a ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24. We urge all community members to help celebrate that opening.

Speaking for the group, Sonny Lollis said, I dont know what its going to take for you five people we hired to run our business. Thats what we hired you for. Huh? When I go into the voting booth, I vote for people who will do the best job running our schools to benefit our kids, not line my pocket. I guess we should take a close look at the board members these contractors are backing. Their tirade at the microphone gives us great insight into why Superintendent Michael Grego is punched in the stomach about facilities and not being allowed to continue to do the great work that is raising grades and performance in our schools. Anyone who has an ounce of common sense knows that better-performing schools bring economic development and higher-paying jobs. If certain School Board members would get off Dr. Gregos back, the jobs would come. All of us in Osceola County who support the positive direction Dr. Grego is taking us better wake up to see whats really going on with the School Boar d and step up to put an end to it real fast. None of us wants to say, Remember when are schools did so well, what went wrong? Alan Ashe CelebrationProtect the land, water and lifestyleTo the editor:I had the opportunity to attend and speak at U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services public meeting about the proposed Everglades Headwaters National Wildlife Refuge (NWR) on Feb. 4 in Sebring. A dynamic group of people attended, and it was clear that people want to see the land, water and lifestyle preserved. However, there was sincere concern and fear of the unknown. My wife and I live next door to the Ding Darling NWR, and I am the vice president of the Ding Darling Wildlife Society, a citizen-based volunteer group that supports the refuge. W e partner with U.S. Fish and W ildlife Service to provide service for visitors, who greatly impact our local economy. Refuges provide wonderful opportunities for recreation. Annually, almost 800,000 people visit Ding Darling NWR for boating, fishing, birding and wildlife viewing, interpretive programs, environmental education opportunities and other r ecr eational uses. The r efuge helps drive our local economy; every federal dollar spent to manage Ding Darling generates more than $30 in local recreational expenditures. Not a bad return on investment, and I anticipate the proposed Everglades Headwaters NWR will also generate much in local eco nomic activity. The Sanibel economy will also benefit from the proposed Everglades Headwaters NWR and Conservation Area. The wildlife and recreational opportunities at Ding Darling are dependent on clean, fresh water coming down the Caloosahatchee River. We have experienced devastating effects of polluted water from upstream. Preserving these upstream landscapes will protect and improve water quality north of Lake Okeechobee. This will improve our water quality and water flow and positively impact the sport-fishing industry, a major economic driver on the island. The proposal will eventually authorize an acquisition boundary, within which willing sellers would have an option to preserve their land for future generations, through either an outright sale of their land or by the placement of a conservation easement over their land, thereby taking away the ability to develop the land. By selling only development rights the landowner would receive cash and continue to live on and work the land. To those of us living down river, this is the kind of cost sharing we can support. Since all of the land proposed to be included in the refuge and conservation area will come from curr ent private land, no access that is currently enjoyed on public lands will change. In fact by pur chasing private land, access will be increased for fishing and hunting. The proposed Ever glades Headwaters NWR is a once-ina-lifetime chance to protect this wonder ful land, water and lifestyle. Please let us all work together to make it a reality.John McCabe Vice President Ding Darling Wildlife Society Page A4, NEWS-GAZETTE Online All The Time www.aroundosceola.com Thursday, February 17, 2011 021711.TNG 021711.TNG Osceola Heritage Park and Osceola County Businesses...A Winning Combination!The Osceola Heritage Park has put a lot of heads in our beds!

The Community Outreach Program is intended for residents to help improve awareness of county functions and provide an accurate understanding of the countys mission and goals. To accomplish that goal, the Commissioners Corner will serve as a tool to inform the citizens through videos, Enewsletters, calendars and press releases for each district, county spokeswoman Bethzaida Garcia said in a press r elease. In a monthly video, each commissioner will discuss his current priorities and goals as a member of the Board of County Commissioners.Every month, residents can tune in to find out what their county commissioner is working on to improve his district, Garcia said. T o view the Commissioners Corner, access the county website at www.osceola.org and click on Commissioners Corner. There you will find links to each commissioners profile. Click on the commissioners profile to access the video.

This would be the first r etr eat for our newly elected council. We have two new members, Mayor (Rebecca) Bor ders and Councilmember (Russell) Holmes, and its important to have a clear understanding of those ideas for the council as a whole and for staf f. We are in good shape in this city, but its because we plan ahead and think out of the box, that we get to be as successful as we ar e in pr oviding the services that our citizens expect and deserve. Our efforts are always in the interest of the community. W ith these r etreats, council and staff have the opportunity to discuss extensively the citys pr esent and future.

Invasive plant management on the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes will be the focus of a public meeting in Kissimmee from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at Osceola County Commission Chambers, Administrative Building, fourth floor, 1 Courthouse Square. The meeting will provide updates on recent invasive plant control on lakes in the Kissimmee Chain by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the South Florida Water Management District. The meeting also is a follow-up toa Dec. 12 public meeting where the commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service gave an update and answered questions on the hydrilla treatment program implemented last November. The commission, the water district, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the University of Florida will present information on hydrilla management activities, herbicide monitoring reports and herbicide registration, and an update on snail kite nesting activity. These agencies implemented an adaptive approach to hydrilla treatment to help protect the endangered Everglade snail kite by increasing the birds access to its food source, namely apple snails. The kite has lost most of its historic nesting and feeding habitat in South Florida because of drought and floods, and, in the past few years, many have moved north to Lake Tohopekaliga. In October, at the first meeting held by the commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regarding the new treatment plans, biologists detailed how hydrilla provides a food source and a structure on which apple snails climb to the surface of the water, where the Everglade snail kite can eat them. Abundant hydrilla and apple snails make Lake Tohopekaliga one of the best areas in the state for snail kites to find plenty of food and to nest. As a result, the commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are taking extra precautions when controlling hydrilla in the lake this winter and spring, to help the dwindling population of snail kites. These agencies are working to balance the needs of this endangered species with the needs of the people and businesses that use the lake or depend on it for their income. For more information on the meeting, contact Ed Harris at 407-858-6170.

News briefsContinued from page A-5 Hawkins cans of Puerto Rican descent lost their lives in Korea, meaning that one in every 42 casualties in the conflict was a Puerto Rican. Dennis O. Freytes, of Windermere, a retired lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army who refers to himself as a community servant and activist on Hispanic/Puerto Rican issues, said the renaming of the park did a great service to those unsung heroes who fought under the American flag for all Americans. There are thousands of people in Osceola County of Puerto Rican heritage and r oots, Freytes said, adding that his father was in the Infantry as well. There also are some actual 65th Infantry veterans living there. What is unique about the regiment, Freytes said, is that the unit was the only segregated Hispanic unit in the U.S. Army and that while these veterans fought and died for the United States, they could not vote for its president a situation that still exists today. Freytes, who is vice president of the National Association for Uniformed Services, said the county renaming the park comes at a time when the status of Puerto Rico as a territory is gaining more attention and that a presidential report on the issue is due out soon. He added that Puerto Ricans should be allowed to vote either to become the 51st state or to become an independent nation an improvement over the second-class U.S. citizenship they now have. The county and residents of the Buenaventura Lakes community will mark the grand reopening of the recently renovated park, which formerly was the W alk-N-Sticks Executive Golf Course, with a ribbon cutting at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24.No commercial airboat use of county rampsCommissioners on a unanimous vote Monday also decided to cease pursuing vendor agreements for commercial airboat use of two county boat ramps, one at Whaleys Landing on Lake Tohopekaliga, the second at Lake Marian. The commission Jan. 28 reviewed five sites recommended by staff on county lakes to determine whether any of them would be appropriate from which commercial airboat businesses promoting eco-tourism could operate, for a fee. Only two sites were recommended as having the potential to accommodate such operations. Since Jan. 28, Ive heard from many people, Commissioner Fred Hawkins Jr. said, adding that he spoke with Kenansville residents in the Lake Marian area and those in the area living around Whaleys Landing. I kept hearing that maybe we shouldnt be in this (leasing of public facilities for commercial use). I dont want to put anyone out of business, but airboat operators can have private ventures. Im going to join with Commissioners (Frank) Attkisson and (Michael) Harford, and say this isnt a business we should be in. Harford said he stands by his original stance that county boat docks and ramps are intended for public, not commercial use. We dont need to be in that business, he said. The commission agreed to pursue the commercial airboat vendor agreements after passing an ordinance in December banning all such operations from public facilities unless vendor agreements were in place. The commission at the time suggested that smaller operators band together to bid on a site. The fees charged would have gone toward improvements at the ramps, such as restrooms or parking lots.

While staying home fr om work to rest, recover and avoid infecting coworkers makes sense to most people, other factors come into play. One in five Americans report feeling pressure to go to work when sick, and one in thr ee Americans say they would not get paid when taking a sick day, according to a recent survey conducted by HALLS, Americas number one selling cough drop. With those numbers in mind, and added pressure from a lagging economy, its not surprising that 44 percent of the surveys respondents would consider going to work with a fever and 32 percent said they would go to work no matter how sick they are. Staying home sick is never an easy decision, especially if some of these added pressures apply. The best way to avoid staying home and protect your health is to take precautions to help you stay healthy Here are a few tips to help you stay well and working this flu season and beyond: F Get a flu shot. Getting a flu shot each year is the most important step you can take to protect yourself against seasonal influenza, according to the Centers for Disease Control. F Wash your hands frequently. Use soap and warm water and scrub for at least 20 seconds -about the time it takes to r ecite the Pledge of Allegiance or sing "Happy Birthday" twice. F Keep your desk stocked. Keep hand sanitizer for disinfecting when you can t get to the sink to wash your hands. Keep lotion handy to avoid cracking skin that can result from frequent hand washing and disinfecting. F Disinfect common surfaces. By frequently using a disinfectant on sur faces that experience frequent contact with multiple people, you can prevent the spread of germs. This may include shared desks, phones, doorknobs and computer keyboards. F Practice healthy habits. A diet rich in fr uits and vegetables and regular exercise can help boost your immune system to ward of f sickness. Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day to help flush toxins from your system. Get the proper amount of sleep eight to nine hours for many people to also help keep your immune system functioning at peak capacity. F Keep things fresh. Keeping rooms properly ventilated in the winter can be challenging and germs can circulate more easily indoors, so the more time you spend outside, the less youll be exposed to other people s germs. Getting outside can also improve your mood and reduce stress, which helps in fighting of f sickness. F Stock up on the essentials in the event you get sick. Make sure youre prepar ed by having cough drops, tissues, soap, hand sanitizer, vitamins and fever reducer while youre still healthy. If you do get sick, its best to stay home, rest and recover, if possible, to prevent spreading the illness to your coworkers and expedite your recovery. But your most prudent course of action is to take preventative action to avoid becoming sick in the first place.

By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Osceolas Zanquina Z Ellison was disappointed Saturday that she didnt break a state record, but she earned a pr etty good consolation prize the 129-pound girls state weightlifting championship. Ellison, who powered up lifts of 175 pounds in the bench press and 155 pounds in the clean and jerk, easily won her second state title with a total lift of 330 pounds at the Kissimmee Civic Center. I guess Im happy, but I could have done better, Ellison said. Its nice to win a championship. Ellison won at 119 pounds as a sophomore two years ago. She also went to the state meet as a freshman at St. Cloud High, when she finished fourth. As a junior last season, she led all lifters at 129 pounds at the state tournament after the bench press, but she was unable to complete a clean and jerk because ofa wrist injury and did not place. She was determined to get back and win it her sen ior year, Osceola Coach Eric Pinellas said. She could have clean and jerked 175 pounds (Saturday), which would have tied her record, but she didnt want to do that. She said if she couldnt break the record, what was the point? Thats why she was upset with herself. Two more Osceola County weightlifters turned in out standing efforts Saturday and placed in their r espective weight classes. Poincianas Kandra Anderson lifted 170-165 to finish second at 183 pounds, and Harmonys Melissa Albert lifted 155-165 and finished thir d at 135 pounds. Anderson, the Orange Belt Conference and sectional champion, expected to do well at the state meet, she said. This year I was pretty confident because I was here last year and that experience helped me, she said. Poinciana Coach Joel Campbell said that state experience, plus a lot of work in the weightroom over the past year was the dif ference.

If you get tired of hearing that, look at the Celebration boys soccer team. Despite scoring just three goals in thr ee regional playoff games including one in the last two combined the Storm is still alive, and plays in todays Class 4A state tournament semifinals at the University of Tampas Pepin Stadium. Coach Julio Machucas team will face Cape Coral at 5:15 p.m. Celebration (16-1-3) played Land OLakes Sunlake to a scoreless tie through 100 minutes of regulation and overtime in Fridays Region 2 final before the host Storm won it, 4-3, on penalty kicks. Goalie John Birchall got enough of Sunlakes final shot, taken by goalie counterpart David Danahy, to send it wide. It may have been wide anyway, but Bir ch guessed right and dove left, he would have stopped it, Machuca said. In the shootout, Mike Anderson, Dominic Barr os, James Anderson and Jehov Pardo de Figueroa buried their shots. Up 4-3, Miguel Cortes could have won it on his shot, but Danahy stopped it, setting up a crucial moment between he and Birchall, a sophomore. I just told myself it was my time to step up and bring it home for the team, Bir chall said. Theres like a one percent chance of stopping one of those, you just dive and hope you guess right and stop it. When I saw it hit off the post I just started scr eaming and running, I didnt know where. Were going to state and its a dr eam come true. That moment was just as harrowing as all 100 minutes before it, Machuca said. I think I aged a few years on Friday. The time before it went to kicks was kind of tor tur e, he said. Sunlake sur prised us with their speed and tenacity and got some early br eakthroughs. After that, our team adjusted well and realized they needed to anticipate their long passes. At the half our kids were saying, Keep shooting and the goal will come. Ther e was no panic. Machuca also said the game was a showcase of two skilled goalies at their best. Birchall had a great game coming off his line to eliminate scoring chances, and (Danahy) played outstanding and kept them in the game, he said. I cr edit him because I thought we played well enough to score a couple goals. I didnt say anything to John going into the PKs. W e work on them in practice and hes good at reading shooters. And I told the shooters that they should feel ready, decide where youre shooting early and focus on the ball. Machuca said that he isnt concerned about the power outage that has hit his oncepotent offensive attack.

If I had said before the season that wed have eight going to the state tournament, I would have been crazy, Kowboys Coach Jim Bird said. This is a special group. A total of 23 Osceola County wrestlers, including three regional champions, will compete at the Class 3A and Class 2A state tournaments. The action begins Friday at 10 a.m. for the first two rounds. The semifinals begin Saturday morning after third-round wrestlebacks, which start at 9 a.m. The finals are at 5 p.m. Admission is $8 per session (two sessions Saturday). Parking is $7. Five Kowboys reached the finals of the 3A-2 regional at OHS Saturday and 145pounder Pete Baldwin (50-0) won the regional championship. Baldwin extended his national r ecor ds in career victories (320) and falls (239) at the regional meet. He won the 119-pound state championship as a freshman in 2008. Also reaching the finals wer e Osceolas E.J. Jimenez (22-6) at 119, Alex Rivera (35-13) at 130, Kenny Martin (30-9) at 152 and Chris Pagan (42-11) at 171.

When you get to this level, teams play good defense and pr essur e the ball everywher e, and goals are at a premium, he said. With our defense right now, we feel like one goal should be enough. Birchall concurs with the One Is Enough mantra, because of the play of defenders Anderson, Barros and Brian Santos. I trust those guys with everything, he said. Theyre the best guys Ive probably ever played with. Cape Coral represents the fourth district runner-up the Stor m will see in the playof fs. I dont know what to read into that but its good for things to go our way for a change. Were excited to be going to the state tournament for the first time, Machuca said. We have to concentrate, mor e than ever on committing to our game plan and embrace the opportunity. If we play our game and stay in it well do well. Choctawhatchee and Miami Belen Jesuit play in todays other semifinal at 3 p.m. The winners will play for the 4A championship at 2 p.m. Satur day.StormContinued from page A-8HoopsContinued from page A-8Coach Kevin Hosford said the Lions played without two starters, benched for rules violations. Poinciana rallied against Eustis thanks to hustle under the glass. Green put in r ebound to start the fourthquarter rally, then Marc and Curry hit put-backs to draw the Eagles within one, 45-44, after Curry converted a threepoint play. Eustis drew back ahead by five, 49-44, before Curry hit a pair of free throws and Vinson drilled a 3-point shot to send it into overtime. Eustis led by 1, 55-54, with 1:20 to go in the OT before Greene hit a driving lay-up with 1:02 left for the games final points. The Panthers held for the last shot, but turned it over with nine seconds left. Last year, Oak Ridge just had us out-matched, and the year before that, South Lake jumped on us early, Poinciana Coach Jay Lunce said in comparing this teams success to frustrations of the past. Everybody weve matched up with, where size-wise we had a chance, weve always played well. Lunce said the Eagles have learned to share the ball, and that has contributed to their success. This is the first group Ive had who treat each other as family, he said. Lunce said Leesburg, 22-4, is quick and athletic, like Poinciana. They arent real big inside, but I am a little concerned about matching up with them, he said. It was an upset that they lost to Lake W eir in the championship game, but I dont know if it was a real big upset. I think they were pretty close. The Yellow Jackets lost the district championship to Lake W eir, 76-75, when Leesburgs T eron Wallace missed the last of three free throws with no time on the clock after being fouled attempting a desperation 3-point attempt. Like Poinciana, Leesburg has a quartet of capable scorers in Wallace, Joe Toolie, Dmaury Jones and Undra Mitchem, all scoring in double figures in the championship game. Osceola Coach Steve Mason said the Kowboys are capable of upending Kathleen, 16-11, today despite a 73-42 loss against district champion Lake Wales Saturday at Ridge Community High. We worked so hard preparing for Haines City, we had nothing left, Mason said. It was like last year, Lake Wales had a real tough emotional game against Winter Haven in the semifinals, and the next night we had a running clock on them. OHS point guard Michael Sanchez has been hampered by an ankle injury. Jedarian Jackson had 11 points against Lake Wales. Mason said aside from a loss to Longwood Lyman to end the regular season, the Kowboys have lost only to ranked teams. Lake Wales, No. 4 in Class 5A, has beaten the Kowboys three times. It hosts Lakeland Thursday. I hope we can get another chance at Lake Wales. We have a chance against Kathleen, Mason said. Heritage Christian beat Liberty Christian, 76-36, Tuesday in the Florida Christian Conference playoffs. Maynard Rowe scored 32 to boost his career total to 2,201 points. Josh Newman added 25. Heritage will host West Melbourne today at 7:30 p.m. The winner advances to the state tournament Saturday. Gateway fell at the 6A-6 tournament, 53-42, against Port St. Lucie Treasure Coast. News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanPoincianas Lex Curry (12) scored eight points in the Eagles 56-55 overtime win against Eustis Saturday as the team won its first 4A-6 district championship.

Tim Locksmith (41-4), competing with a separated shoulder, was third at 125, while Wade Ridings (13-7) at 135 and Paul Zupofska (3912) at 140 were fourth. Osceola lost two state champions to graduation before the season and the young team lost the Orange Belt Conference championship for the first time in five years to Liberty in December. We could have folded up right then, Bir d said. But, a trip to Pennsylvania for the Powerade Nationals seemed to light a spark, Bird said. You could see it a little bit in Pennsylvania, then we had a couple of good tournaments, he said. The practices started getting better, the drills started getting better .We just kept impr oving. Im fortunate to have a gr eat coaching staff to make that happen. Brandon (318) won the team championship over the Kowboys (172.5). Bird said his team will acquit itself well in Lakeland. They arent afraid to go against anyone. In fact, it might be working the other way. It could be that teams see those (Kowboys) sin glets, and thats worth a point or two to us. George Jenkins and Lakeland at the district tournament were good teams, but it seemed like as that tournament went on, our guys were believing it more, and theirs were believing it less. The good news for OHS is that five of the eight state qualifiers will return, and three-time state qualifier Fox Baldwin (57-2), who won the 119-pound regional championship for Lake Highland Pr ep last week, is expected to join OHS next season as a fr eshman. Gateway (53) placed 10th Saturday. The Panthers have two state qualifiers in 112-pound runner-up Alex Velez and Christian Vazquez, fourth at 152. W eve made some major strides this season, Panthers Coach Jon Smorin said. When we took over (two seasons ago), we had eight kids to work with. Now we have 20, and were growing. Alex has a chance to do some good things, and hes only a sophomore. Liberty (129.5) was fourth at the 2A-2 tournament at Sebring behind champion Spring Hill Springstead (222), Lake Gibson (218.5) and Oviedo (167). Celebration (102) was seventh, Harmony (90) was eighth and St. Cloud (22.5) was 22nd. Six Liberty wrestlers moved to the state tournament, led by 189-pound regional champion Aric Fernandez. Fernandez won a 12-0 decision over Andrew Herr of River Ridge for the first regional crown in the schools history. Aric beat an undefeated wrestler from River Ridge and has the skill and toughness to win a state championship, Coach Chris Kelly said. Felix Betancourt was second at 130 pounds, and J.J. Elisis lost in the 160 finals by an injury default. Josh Garcia was thir d at 152 pounds, and Libertys Robert Torres was fourth at 103 and Joel Martinez was fourth at 215. Wer e pr oud of the r esults we have so far. Were in a very tough region, Coach Chris Kelly said. W e told our guys if you can place at this event, you can place at state. Celebration sends four wrestlers to the Class 2A state tournament, led by 119pound regional champion Josh Douglas (47-7). Douglas defeated Lake Gibsons Jacob Phillips, 5-4, in double overtime. Coach Vic Lorenzano said Douglas is the first Stor m wr estler to ear n both district and regional championships during the same season. He is joined by teammates Camer on Ward, third at 189, J.J. Francis at 145 and heavyweight Alvaro Noreno, both fourth. Noreno pinned three opponents to qualify. Francis scored a takedown and a near fall in the final five seconds of the wr estlebacks to earn his state tournament berth. Three Harmony wrestlers r eached the Class 2A state tournament as Ariel Dominguez at 103 and Matt V aughn at 135 both made it to the finals. Chris Grillo took thir d at 145. Im happy for the thr ee guys who qualified but disappointed that more didnt qualify. A couple of our seniors had some very tough draws and caught some tough breaks, Coach Chris Todd said. No wrestlers from St. Cloud or Poinciana advanced to the state meet.

Harmonys Melissa Albert, here competing in the bench press, placed third at 139 pounds at the state weightlifting meet Saturday at the Kissimmee Civic Center. News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanChampContinued from page A-8jerk, and because of that she was able to get up 165, which isa record for her, Campbell said. Albert squeezed a bottle of honey into her mouth before each lift, and the eventual outcome proved to be just as sweet for her. I guess it gives me a little extra boost, she said. Albert, the OBC champion, said she thought she would do well at the state meet and she did, hitting personal records on all of her lifts. Ihad high goals, even though it was the first state meet for me, she said. I try to stay calm, because if you get nervous, you cant perform. Even though Albert, a dual enrollment student at Harmony who has competed at r odeos, seemed to easily lift the last clean and jerk, she said she had performed as well as she could. I might have been able to get a little more over my head, but you have to clean it first and I couldnt have gone any higher, she said. Spruce Creek won the team championship. St. Clouds Iliana Bonilla lifted 105-120-225 at 101 pounds, and Annie Barberi cleared 120-120-240 at 110 pounds, but neither placed among the top six. Osceolas 119-pounder T ynia Gaither did not make weight.

Section B Go to www.aroundosceola.com for all St. Cloud news February 17, 2011AROUNDKISSIMMEEAROUNDKISSIMMEEINCLUDING: POINCIANA BVL INTERCESSIONCITY By Brian McBride Associate Editor The news reached Kissimmee Main Street Executive Dir ector Cheryl Fish in the form of an e-mail with a subject headline that said, Congratulations. Florida Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning recently announced that Kissimmee Main Street was designated as the Florida Main Street Program of the Month for February. Selection for this award is based on a record of active participation in the Florida Main Street Program. Kissimmee Main Street has been an exemplary program with exceptional leadership and community involvement, Browning said. Residents and visitors alike benefit from successes of this revitalization effort which has enhanced the citys downtown. Fish said the accomplishment was a joint effort as its only she and a part-time staff member running the Main Street office, 421 Broadway. We have a lot of volunteers and board members that give a lot of heart because they love downtown Kissimmee, Fish said. The Main Street program is tasked with bringing economic development and visitors to the downtown area through special events and preserving and promoting Kissimmees rich heritage, Fish said. Incorporated in 1883, the citys thriving downtown offers ample pedestrian shopping areas, rehabilitated historic buildings and provides a venue for community events and celebrations, Browning stated in a press r elease, adding that Kissimmee also is well known for its nearby tourism attractions and outdoor recreation opportunities. This is the second time Main Street has won the award under Fish, having earned the honor in October of last year. I hope it makes mor e people interested in Main Street and want to join, Fish said of the award. Fish said she likes to think that the award also sets an example to the 49 other Main Street programs across the state because of the achievement. Its a wonderful feeling, it really is, she said. This kind of award makes it all worthwhile. At the 2010 Annual Florida Main Street Sec r etary of State Awards Dinner, Kissimmee Main Str eet won a Merit A war d for Outstanding Image Campaign or Promotional Material for its historic walking tour and visitor guide. Kissimmee Main Street officials stated that since its designation as a Florida Main Street Community in 1997, Kissimmees downtown has experienced an exciting rebirth, with 400 construction and rehabilitation projects totaling more than $30.5 million worth of investment, 259 business openings, and 587 new job creations. In addition, volunteers have donated more than 12,200 hours of their time to meetings and events. Florida Main Street is a technical assis tance program of the Bureau of Historic Preservation, Division of Historical Resources, Florida Department of State. The bureau conducts statewide programs aimed at identifying, evaluating, and preserving Floridas historical resources. Main Street, with its emphasis on preservation, is an effective strategy for achieving these goals in Floridas historic retail districts.

The field of 57 individuals named as school-based Teachers of the Year in honor of excellence in their profession, has been narrowed down to the top 10 finalists. The name of one of these individuals will be revealed as Osceola Countys 2012 Teacher of the Year at a ceremony hosted by the Education Foundation Osceola March 31 at the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center. The following educators have been named as finalists: Michelle Alford English teacher at New Dimensions High Brenda Allen media specialist at Celebration K-8 Karlene Beville thirdgrade teacher at Boggy Creek Elementary Marny Brennan -exceptional education teacher at Neptune Elementary Katrina Cunningham language arts teacher at St. Cloud Middle Cheryl Davis kindergarten teacher at Narcoossee Elementary Alissa Jean social studies teacher at Bellalago Academy Holly Plaza fourthgrade teacher at Mill Creek Elementary Allen Root fifth-grade teacher at Thacker Avenue W e all want to enjoy a comfortable retirement. But to do so, we need to make different moves and consider different issues at different times of our lives. To help illustrate this point, lets look at three individuals: Alice, who is just starting her career; Bob, who is nearing retirement; and Charlie, who has r ecently retired. Lets start with Alice. As a young worker Alice most likely has four decades ahead of her until she retires. Yet, she realizes that its never too soon to start saving for retirement, so she has already begun contributing to her 401(k) and to an IRA. And since she has so much time ahead of her she has decided to invest aggressively, putting much of her contributions in growth-oriented vehicles. The market will certainly have its dips in the futur e and Alices account values could rise and fall fr om year to year but the longer she holds her investments, the less of an impact that market extremes should have on her 401(k), IRA and other accounts. Now lets tur n our atten tion to Bob. Since he is withina few years of retirement, he has some key decisions to make. For one thing, he must decide if its time to change the investment mix in his IRA, 401(k) and other accounts. Because Bob does nt have much time to over come market volatility and since hed like to maintain the gains he has already achieved, he may decide to become more conservative with his investments. Consequently, he may choose to move some of his investment dollars from stocks to bonds and other fixed-income securities. Realizing, however, that he may spend two or three decades in retirement, and knowing that he will need to stay ahead of inflation, he doesnt abandon all his growth-oriented investments. Furthermore, Bob decides that he may need to bolster his retirement income, so he considers whether an annuity, which is designed to provide him with an income stream he cant outlive, is appr opriate for his situation. Our final life stages investor is Charlie. He has r ecently retired, so his biggest concern is making sure he doesnt outlive his financial resources. Therefore, he may need to consider a variety of moves. For starters, he should determine when to start taking Social Security and when to begin taking withdrawals from his IRA and 401(k) plans. (For a traditional IRA and a 401(k) or other employer-sponsored plan, Charlie, like all investors, must start taking withdrawals no later than age 70-and-ahalf.) After deciding when to start taking withdrawals from his retirement plans, hell also need to calculate how much he can afford to take each year without emptying the accounts. Finally, he might need to rebalance his overall investment portfolio to provide himself with more income. For help in making the types of choices described above, you may want to work with a financial professional, but in any case, you need to be prepared to take the right steps at the right times to enjoy the r etir ement lifestyle youve envisioned.

Auditions for this singing competition will be Saturday, March 5, at Living Water Fellowship, 4101 Pleasant Hill Road. Selected participants (age 15 to 17) will go on to compete April 9 for the title of Central Floridas Next Biggest Star. The grand prize is $1,000. The April event is a formal dinner. Admission is $50 for this black-tie affair. This is the fourth annual Next Biggest Star. Previous ones were held at venues such as the Omni Rosen and Disney. To have this in our own backyard is impressive, but even more important is the cause it benefits. Central Floridas Next Biggest Star is a singing competition to benefit Childrens Advocacy Center for Osceola County. The Childrens Advocacy Center (CAC) provides services to children and non-offending family members who are victims of sexual and physical abuse. CAC coordinates law enforcement, child protective services, mental health, medical personnel and victim advocacy to provide the most comprehensive services available so that children are not victimized again. If youve got the chops, audition March 5. To schedule a time, contact Sandy Geroux at 407856-1188. This could be the start of something big! ooo Urgent Care Poinciana has been helping patients since Dec. 1. It had its ribbon-cutting on Feb. 9. The cheerful staff offered tours of this latest addition to the community Dr. Corliss Oliver has been seeing patients there since December. The amicable physician is especially proud of her above-and-beyond bedside manner. I had seen a patient and was concerned about her. I followed up and called. She was surprised, Oliver said. That helps to make Urgent Care Poinciana more than just a treat em and street em facility. Should you need the services, keep Urgent Care Poinciana in mind. Urgent Care Poinciana is at 3759 Pleasant Hill Road (in the Shops of Bellalago near W algreens). ooo The Poinciana Area Council (PAC), which operates under an umbrella of the Kissimmee/Osceola County Chamber of Commerce, established a scholarship fund in 2007. Every year, PAC awards two $1,000 scholarships to Poinciana high school seniors. The graduating 2011 high school senior must reside in ZIP codes 34758 or 34759. Students may be out-of-zoned to attend school in another area as long as they reside in ZIP code 34758 or 34759. Students applying for the scholarship must have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and have a letter of recommendation from a teacher. The student also must write a 500-word essay. More information may be obtained through the schools guidance counselor or by e-mail: ldcato@yahoo.com. Every little bit helps. One thousand dollars could pay for several credits at a college, courses at a technical school or books. The scholarship money is paid directly to the school the student will be attending. The Poinciana Area Council has raised this money with the intent that it be given to a Poinciana student. Take the time to apply. The deadline is Monday, Feb. 28. ooo If you have any Poinciana news or information that you would like to share, call Lisa DCato at 407-946-7122 or email news@osceolanewsgazette.comAuditions for singing contest set for March Lisa DCatoPoinciana Writer Robert RosenEdward Jones See Finalists, page B-6 Thursday, February 17, 2011 Online All The Time www.aroundosceola.com NEWS-GAZETTE, Page B3 021711.TNG Established Since 1978 407-847-344111220055 WW..

Could the house use an exterior upgrade? W ant to see a boost of color but ar e afraid to stray fr om neutrals? W ant the home to look like the ones in magazines and television shows? Renovating a homes exterior is one way to dramatically impr ove the overall curb appeal. Many homes that wer e built post-war during the mid to late 20th century lost the historical, ar chitectural appeal of older homes due to the need for mass pr oduced, affor dable housing, said Deryl Patterson, partner at BSB Design, a leading national r esidential ar chitectural fir m. Updating those tir ed exterior elevations with historical details and mixed materials can help give homes a timeless appeal and boost r esale value. Some homeowners might feel they do not have the tools they need to begin a r enovation, and can become overwhelmed when thinking about the pr ocess. The good news is todays leading ar chitects and pr oduct manufactur ers ar e working to give homeowners the inspiration and confidence to move forwar d with an exterior r enovation. T odays homeowners and homebuyers want a low-maintenance, ener gy-efficient house that is unique in style and stands out in the neighborhood, John Stephenson of Ply Gem, a building pr oducts manufactur er who has intr oduced a collection of inspirational home style visuals and guidelines to help homeowners begin conversations with their contractor said. T o help ar m homeowners with the tools they need to upgrade their exterior Ply Gem and BSB Design of fer these tips.R e a l i z e the possibilitiesY ears ago, it was virtually impossible to maintain historically accurate character when building or r enovating using low-maintenance materials. Thanks to technological advance ments in pr oduct manufacturing pr ocesses, builders and homeowners can now achieve beautiful, color ful home designs without the maintenance and cost of natural materials. Many pr oducts, such as insulated siding and triple pane windows, also offer the added benefit of ener gy efficiency. Which ar chitectural style suits your personal style? Knowing which home style your e partial to will help narr ow down the featur es you add to your home in a r enovation. For an old-world, Eur opean style, consider the ar chitectural details of the Fr ench Country, Spanish eclectic or T uscan. For a mor e contemporary or transi tional aesthetic, look to the Prairie and Crafts man. And for traditional styles, Shingle and Geor gian featur es work well.Don t b e c o l or shyExterior home color selection can be an overwhelming pr ocess, especially because its one of the longest-ter m decisions that home owners have to make. However going beyond white or beige and using the right color combi nations can take a home fr om drab to stunning. A good rule of thumb is to select thr ee or four coor dinating colors and use them on differ ent elevations and ar chitectural details of the home, including shutters, trim and gables, Patterson said. Look to collections, like The Designed Exterior Collection by Ply Gem, that simplify color selection by identifying palettes that work for each ar chitectural style. Another easy way to incorporate color is by mixing in other materials, such as stone veneer and bold window exteriors, with vinyl siding. B e p a r t i c u l a r when it comes t o a r chitectur eEach ar chitectural style has key defining featur es that r eflect the era in which it was intr oduced. T o stay true to the elements that characterize the particular style, work with your contractor or ar chitect and deter mine which materials should be used to achieve the look you desir e. Consider featur es such as lowpitched r oofs for moder n styles like the Craftsman and Prairie, use of stone veneer or stucco in Eur opean-inspir ed styles or incorporation of hand-split shakes in the shingle style. W indow design is also an important aspect of ar chitectural styling that is often overlooked. Colonial grilles offer a traditional style, while fixed or casement windows with minimal grilles pr ovide a str eamlined, moder n look. T o help take the guesswork out of ar chitectural styling and color selection, websites like www.DesignedExterior .com of fer tried and true combinations and design specifications.

Q: Ive got an old claw-foot tub that looks shabby but is pretty sound that Id like to install in the bathroom Im remodeling. Id like to refinish it, but am not sure what materials to use or how long it would take. What do you recommend? Jim H., Philadelphia A: You do have two options: the do-it-yourself refinish or a professional refinish. I may once have espoused the idea thatyou should tackle a tub refinishing job yourself, but over time have found that I prefer to spend my energies on other aspects of a bathr oom r emodel and not on trying to restore tubs and sinks. W ith the do-it-yourself option theres the investment in the right equipment and materials to do the job, and numerous hours are required to get it done. The tub needs to be scrubbed beyond clean and the surface prepped for the refinishing medium. Then the finish needs to be applied properly to avoid streaking or later cracking or peeling. All of this takes time and care, and youve got to work in a very well-ventilated area. Even with all that, the refinish may go poorly. This is where professional refinishing comes in. One of the bonuses of hiring a pr o to do the refinish job is that this is a pretty competitive service in most areas, with several companies vying for your business. So you can get multiple quotes before making the decision to either have a professional handle the r efinish, or attempt the job yourself.Bathtub refinishing best left to the professionals This is a hammerBy Samantha Mazzottahomeguru2000@ hotmail.com Q: I have a Shubert upright grand piano that was made in New York during the early 1900s. Id like to know if it is valuable. Maria, Albuquerque, N.M. A: I hate to begin my answer on a sour note, but there is little market for vintage upright pianos. The pictures you sent me suggest that the cabinet is probably tiger oak, but there also appears to be a great deal of wear. It would be considered a practice piano and probably not worth all that much. A quick check of pianos being offered for sale in Albuquerque revealed dozens of uprights similar to yours, mostly priced in the $200 to $350 range. For a second opinion, you might want to contact a dealer who specializes in vintage pianos. An established company is In Tune Piano Services, 2753 Glory Court SW, Albuquerque, and www.classicpiano.com. In T une provides an ad service to help people who want to sell. ooo Q: I have an original handwritten letter from Charles Schulz, the cartoonist and creator of the Peanuts comic strip. I would like to sell it and was told by an appraiser for a major auction company years ago that it was worth $600. What do you think? Theresa, Apache Junction, Ariz. A: I think your autographed letter is worth about $75. There are, of course, exceptions to every rule. For a second opinion, you might want to hire the services of an appraiser, and you should expect to pay for this service. I found several Schulz autographed items mostly books for sale at various Internet sites, the majority priced in the $50 to $100 range.

Park name honors 65th Infantry


County also drops pursuit of commercial airboat vendors for public boat ramps


By Marvin G. Cortner
Editor
The Osceola County Commission
Monday renamed the 33.6-acre Walk-
N-Sticks Park in Buenaventura Lakes
as the 65th Infantry Veterans Park,
honoring an all-volunteer U.S. Army
regiment comprised of Puerto Ricans.
The regiment, called the "Borinque-
neers," fought in World War 1, World


War II and the Korean War. The group,
which saw extensive combat during the
Korean War, was started in 1899; it
disbanded after the Korean War. A
number of veterans who served in the
regiment in the Korean War or their
descendants live in Osceola County.
"The approval of this resolution and
the renaming of the Walk-N-Sticks to
the 65th Infantry Veterans Park com-


memorates the efforts
of Americans who
have fought to pre-
serve our liberty, and
we are honored that
many of them make
Osceola County their
home," Commissioner
John Quifiones, who is
of Puerto Rican


Quiones
Quiiiones


descent, said.
Quifiones pointed out that a num-
ber of people gathered in the com-
mission chambers in support of the
resolution renaming the park have
close connections to the 65th
Infantry: Julius Melendez, an Osceola
County School Board member who
recently returned from active military
duty in Iraq, has a grandfather who is


a 65th Infantry veteran; another vet-
eran served with the U.S. Army's 3rd
Infantry, which fought with the 65th
Infantry in Korea; and another veter-
an served on a transport ship that
took the infantry unit to Korea.

by the county, more than 700 Ameri-

By Fallan Patterson
Staff Writer
Daniel Webster may be a
newcomer to Congress but he
has nearly three decades of
experience in the state Senate
and plans to use it to serve his
new constituents, including
those in Osceola County.-
Webster's district winds
down the middle of the state
and include parts of Lake, Mar-
ion and Orange counties and a
sliver of Osceola, mainly Cele-
bration. However, Webster's
priorities include all Floridians
and the nation in his quest to
get the economy rolling and
eliminate overspending; put
people back to work and and
keep relationships working
among political parties.
"We have to turn off the
spigot of spending," Webster,
R-Winter Park, said "The
process of borrowing and
spending money we don't


have is broken."
Last month, the national
treasury showed the nation's
debt at more than $14 trillion
and Webster said the debt builds
up by $250 billion a year in
interest owed.
"It hurts our ,
national securi-
ty to keep OiS iSC-
spending like
that," Webster
said. "It's that
kind of borrow-
ing that is going
to bankrupt our Webster
country."
Webster is proposing rolling
back spending to 2008 levels
and institute a step process to
budget properly or else future
generations would inherit a
"foreclosed country."
Part of the problem is the
high unemployment rate across

the state, Webster said.
Florida's unemployment rate
for January was 12 percent and
most of the counties in Web-
ster's district fair slightly higher,
with Lake at 12.4 percent, Mar-
ion at 14.2 and Osceola at 12.8
percent. Orange County is just
under the state's average with
11.6 percent unemployment.
Webster has begun a walk-
ing tour throughout his dis-
trict, meeting with business
people to discuss ways to pro-
duce more jobs. He said many
business owners want govern-
ment to step back and stop
proposing policies that would
affect their businesses and
their hiring policies.
"In the end, I think govern-
ment needs to get out of the
way," Webster, the owner of
an air conditioning business,
said. "If every small business

Kissimmee police detec-
tives are asking for the pub-
lic's help identifying the sus-

unknown chemical in a yogurt
shop Friday, sending one cus-
tomer to the hospital.
According to police reports,
officers arrived at Menchie's
Yogurt, 2617 W. Osceola
Parkway, to investigate a sus-
picious incident. Upon arrival,
officers met with the shift
manager, Chelsea Max
Meltcher, who reported that
when she went to the front of

made her cough. Meltcher
then observed that almost all
of the customers were cough-
ing. One of the customers
fainted due to the smell, while
another was transported to a
local hospital due to the effects
of the chemical, reports stat-
ed. Meltcher then evacuated
the store. Neither customer
suffered serious injuries.
Upon viewing the surveil-
lance video, officers observed
three Hispanic females
dressed in black and one His-
panic male dressed in a blue
flannel long-sleeved jacket
standing by the yogurt
machines. One female used
her hands and fingers to ges-
ture a spraying like motion
and began to laugh, reports
stated. Another female
sprayed an unknown chemical
on the floor near the register
counter. The male then
sprayed an unknown chemical
near the yogurt machines. The
video shows customers imme-
diately began coughing. The
video shows one customer fall
at the counter and the sus-
pects laughing.

about the suspects or the inci-
dent is asked to contact the

in the country would add a
job, it would cut the unem-
ployment in half and lower the
budget deficit."
In the wake of the Arizona
shootings last month, many
politicians of the various par-
ties have formed a more unit-
ed front, such as sitting
together for President Barack
Obama's State of the Union
Address Jan. 25, and Webster
is no exception.
He watched the address
with Congresswoman Debbie
Wasserman Shultz, D-West-
on, to discuss issues and while
they may not have agreed on
all topics, Webster said the
experience was important.
"I think you're going to see
there can be civility. There's
going to be cooperation," he
said. "I'm going to be a propo-
nent of that.


Suspicious device at

Osceola 'County Sheriff's
Office deputies evacuated sev-
eral mobile homes Monday
after they observed what
appeared to be a suspicious
homemade device.
At 9:42 a.m., deputies
responded to the Windsor
Mobile Home Park near Uni-
versal Drive in Kissimmee, and
spoke with an individual who
told deputies there was a suspi-
cious device near the parking
lot area. Deputies observed
what appeared to be a small,
homemade device. As a pre-
caution, several mobile homes
in the area were evacuated and
the Orange County Sheriff's
Office Bomb Squad was called
to assist with the incident.
After the bomb squad deto-
nated the device, it was deter-
mined that it was not a safety
concern. During the investi-
gation, a resident approached
Osceola County deputies and
indicated he had made the
device as a power in-
verter. Based on that informa-
tion, residents were allowed

Staff Writer
With thousands of Central
Floridians struggling to pay for
housing, utilities, food and
other critical necessities,
Heart of Florida United Way is
helping qualified residents
claim the Earned Income Tax
Credit, which the organization
said helps lift more children
out of poverty than any other
federal program.
To ensure that residents
receive the full amount they are
entitled to, more than 30 free
tax preparation sites are avail-
able around Central Florida
until April 15 through a part-
nership with the IRS Volunteer
Income Tax Assistance (VITA)
and AARP Tax-Aide programs
Osceola County has nine
free tax sites, including one at
the Osceola County Council on
Aging, 700 Generation Point
in Kissimmee, and the St.
Cloud Senior Center, 3101
17th St. in St. Cloud. For indi-
vidual site dates and times, visit
www.hfuw.org.
In its fourth year providing
this service, Heart of Florida
has expanded the program this
year by five sites, including
offering free tax preparation at
the Valencia College Osceola
Campus for the first time.
Since beginning Feb. 1, the
program has seen tremendous
growth, Brittany Richards, sen-
ior manager of Community
Investment for the agency, said.
"We've had an excellent
response," she said. "Histori-
cally, the people who file early
are looking to get their refund
as soon as possible."
This holds true for Kay
Hays. She is unable to work
and lives off a pension from a
25-year career in automobile
manufacturing and Social Secu-
rity disability benefits.
Hays and her half-sister,
Dorothy Mills, 62, visited the
Council on Aging's free tax site
Tuesday, the second time in
two weeks because last week
Hays, 63, was unable to item-
ize her deductions.
While Mills said she did not
earn enough last year to file a
tax. return. Hays expects ,ai
refund this yeal and-is 'trying to:
find a couple hundred" dollars.
The sisters, who moved to
Kissimmee nine months ago
from St. Augustine, live togeth-
er to pool their finances and
hope the tax refund is the boost
they need.
"You can't beat the price,"
Mills joked about the service.
Richards said it is families
struggling in this economy who
need this service the most,
especially to ensure they qualify
and receive their entitled
amounts.
The tax credits range from
$457 to $5,666 for tax year
2011. EITC helps qualified

families and individuals reduce
debt, enroll in job training, save
for a home, pay for car repairs
or use in any way they see fit.
"Because people in need
often file early and at great
expense through commercial
tax preparation services, United
Way wants to spread the word
that free help is available,"
Richards said. "By filing returns
at local VITA sites, people
receive 100 percent of their
refunds for free, usually within
10 days or less."
To qualify for EITC, recipi-
ents must have earned income
at any time in 2010 and meet
the guidelines for maximum
income. In some cases, people
may be able to claim up to
$20,000 by re-filing tax returns
for the past three years.
More than $1 billion has


been claimed regionally
between 2007-09, yet the
Internal Revenue Service esti-
mates that 25 percent of quali-
fied residents failed to claim
ETIC due to lack of awareness.
With hundreds of thousands of
Central Floridians eligible for
the credit, the economic impact
on individual lives and on the
community is tremendous.
"Because of the continued
economic recession, even
more residents are likely to
qualify for EITC this year who
have never qualified for the tax
credit before," United Way
President/CEO Robert H.
Brown said. "An extra $5,666
can make a huge difference to
a family that's dealing with job
loss, foreclosure or other
financial crises. And because
most EITC dollars are spent


right here in our local commu-
nity, local merchants and busi-
nesses also benefit."
Tax refunds also provide a
significant boost to the Central
Florida economy, where $422
million in refunds were distrib-
uted in 2009 alone throughout
Orange, Osceola and Semi-
nole counties.
Reflecting growing commu-
nity need, calls to United Way
2-1-1, a free, 24-hour crisis
hotline and information and
referral helpline, continued to
break new records. More than
171,400 calls were received in
2010. Seventy-five percent
were first-time callers, people
who have never needed help
before; and utility and housing
assistance accounted for more
than half of all calls.
"A growing number of peo-
ple are hurting and they don't
know where to turn," Richards
said. "They've exhausted sav-
ings, benefits and family gen-
erosity and many continue to
face the frightening prospect
of hunger and homelessness."
The JPMorgan Chase
Foundation, The Wachovia
Wells Fargo Foundation and
The Wal-Mart Foundation
are providing additional sup-
port by sponsoring United
Way's Prosperity Campaign,
which promotes EITC and
other resources that help
families improve their finan-
cial stability.

EITC, visit www.hfuw.org, dial

Renaming park good gesture


Kudos to the Osceola County Commission
for renaming the 33.6-acre Walk-N-Sticks Park
in Buenaventura Lakes as the 65th Infantry Vet-
erans Park. The renaming honors an all-volun-
teer U.S. Army regiment called the "Borinque-
neers" that was comprised of Puerto Ricans.
The regiment, which formed in 1899 short-
ly after Puerto Rico became a U.S. territory,
fought in World War 1, World War II and the
KoreanWlar before being disbanded. A number
of veterans who served in the regiment during
the Korean War or their descendants now
call Osceola County and Central Florida home.
There were several good reasons for renam-
ing the park: first, Buenaventura Lakes has
many residents of Puerto Rican descent; sec-
ond, the name Walk-N-Sticks no longer has any
relevance to the community, in that it refers to
the former golf course which no longer exists;
and third, it is a fitting way to honor a group of
patriots who served and died defending our
country.
The county several years ago decided to
obtain various easements from the golf course
owner with the intent of improving drainage in


the area. County officials at the time found that
the cost to obtain the remaining land for a park
was minimal, and wisely decided to proceed
with the acquisition. Park renovations and new
:-,rnrtiLes at the park then followed, as county
budgets allowed.
We'veajd before that the county purchasing
the park was a good move, given overflow use
of the nearby Archie Gordon Park and the need
for more open space in the community.
What is important to remember is that Puer-
to Rican heritage and roots now run deep in our
community it is just one aspect that adds to
our unique diversity. What also is important to
know about the 65th Infantry is that its mem-
bers, while U.S. citizens, could not vote for
president. These patriots essentially second-
class citizens fought and died for the liberty of
all Americans.
The county and residents of the Buenaventu-
ra Lakes will mark the grand re-opening of the
recently-renovated park with a ribbon cutting at
11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24. We urge all
community members to help celebrate that
opening.

School Board not
there to line pockets
To the editor:
In the Jan. 27, 2011 edi-
tion of the Osceola News-
Gazette, it was reported that
contractors Anthony Padilla,
Bob Gee, Sonny Lollis and Bill
Newman all spoke at the
Osceola County School Board
meeting and protested the
board's handling of contractor
opportunities and awards.
Speaking for the group,
Sonny Lollis said, "I don't
know what it's going to take
for you five people we hired to
run our business. That's what
we hired you for."
Huh? When I go into the
voting booth, I vote for people
who will do the best job run-
ning our schools to benefit our
kids, not line my pocket. I
guess we should take a close
look at the board members
these contractors are backing.
Their tirade at the micro-
phone gives us great insight
into why Superintendent
Michael Grego is punched in
the stomach about facilities
and not being allowed to con-
tinue to do the great work that
is raising grades and perform-
ance in our schools.
Anyone who has an ounce
of common sense knows that
better-performing schools
bring economic development
and higher-paying jobs. If cer-
tain School Board members
would get off Dr. Grego's
back, the jobs would come. All
of us in Osceola County who
support the positive direction
Dr. Grego is taking us better
wake up to see what's really
going on with the School
Boaid and step up to put an
end to it real fast. None of us
wants to say, "Remember


when are schools did so well,
what went wrong?"
Alan Ashe
Celebration
Protect the land,
water and lifestyle
To the editor:
I had the opportunity to
attend and speak at U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Services public
meeting about the proposed
Everglades Headwaters Nation-
al Wildlife Refuge (NWR) on
Feb. 4 in Sebring. A dynamic
group of people attended, and it
was clear that people want to
see the land, water and lifestyle
preserved. However, there was
sincere concern and fear of the
unknown.
My wife and I live next door
to the "Ding" Darling NWR,
and I am the vice president of
the "Ding" Darling Wildlife Soci-
ety, a citizen-based volunteer
group that supports the refuge.
We partner with U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service to provide serv-
ice for visitors, who greatly
impact our local economy.
Refuges provide wonderful
opportunities for recreation.
Annually, almost 800,000 peo-
ple visit "Ding" Darling NWR
for boating, fishing, birding and
wildlife viewing, interpretive
programs, environmental edu-
cation opportunities and other
recreational uses. The refuge
helps drive our local economy;
every federal dollar spent to
manage "Ding" Darling gener-
ates more than $30 in local
recreational expenditures. Not a
bad return on investment, and I
.anticipate the proposed Ever-
glades Headwaters NWR will
also generate much in local eco-
nomic activity.
The Sanibel economy will
also benefit from the proposed
Everglades Headwaters NWR


and Conservation Area. The
wildlife and recreational oppor-
tunities at "Ding" Darling are
dependent on clean, fresh water
coming down the Caloosahatch-
ee River. We have experienced
devastating effects of polluted
water from upstream. Preserv-
ing these upstream landscapes
will protect and iinprove water
quality north of Lake Okee-
chobee. This will improve our
water quality and water flow and
positively impact the sport-fish-
ing industry, a major economic
driver on the island.
The proposal will eventually
authorize an acquisition bound-
ary, within which willing sellers
would have an option to pre-
serve their land for future gener-
ations, through either an out-
right sale of their land or by the
placement of a conservation
easement over their land, there-
by taking away the ability to
develop the land. By selling only
development rights the
landowner would receive cash
and continue to live on and
work the land.
To those of us living down
river, this is the kind of cost
sharing we can support. Since
all of the land proposed to be
included in the refuge and con-
servation area will come from
current private land, no access
that is currently enjoyed on
public lands will change. In fact
by purchasing private land,
access will be increased for.
fishing and hunting.
The proposed Everglades
Headwaters NWR is a once-in-
a-lifetime chance to protect this
wonderful land, water and
lifestyle. Please let us all work
together to make it a reality.

The Community Outreach
Program is intended for resi-
dents to help improve aware-
ness of county functions and
provide an accurate under-
standing of the county's mis-
sion and goals.
"To accomplish that goal,
the Commissioners' Corner will
serve as a tool to inform the cit-
izens through videos, E-
newsletters, calendars and
press releases for each district,"
county spokeswoman Bethzai-
da Garcia said in a press
release.
In a monthly video, each
commissioner will discuss his
current priorities and goals as a
member of the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners. Every
month, residents can tune in to
find out what their county com-
missioner is working on to
improve his district, Garcia said.
To view the Commissioners'
Corner, access the county web-
site at www.osceola.org and

St. Cloud City
Council retreat set
for Feb. 26
The St. Cloud City Council
and city staff will gather Satur-
day, Feb. 26, at the City Hall
Bridge for a planning retreat.
"The purpose of this retreat
is for City Council members to
offer guidance to staff on what
their thoughts and ideas are for
planning purposes," City Man-
ager Tom Hurt stated in a press
release. "This would be the first
retreat for our newly elected
council. We have two new
members, Mayor (Rebecca)
Borders and Councilmember
(Russell) Holmes, and it's
important to have a clear
understanding of those ideas
for the council as a whole and
for staff.
"We are in good shape in
this city, but it's because we
plan ahead and think out of the
box, that we get to be as suc-
cessful as we are in providing
the services that our citizens
expect and deserve. Our efforts
are always in the interest of
the community. With these
retreats, council and staff have
the opportunity to discuss
extensively the city's present
S and future."
An informal retreat is tradi-
tionally held every year. Last
year, the council agreed on con-
ducting two separate retreats so
that enough time was dedicated
S to strategic planning for the
next five years and for the next
S fiscal year's budget.

Meeting Tuesday to be on


region's invasive plants


Invasive plant manage-
ment on the Kissimmee
Chain of Lakes will be the
focus of a public meeting in
Kissimmee from 6 to 8 p.m.
Tuesday at Osceola County
Commission Chambers,
Administrative Building,
fourth floor, 1 Courthouse
Square.
The meeting will provide
updates on recent invasive
plant control on lakes in the
Kissimmee Chain by the
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
and the South Florida Water
Management District. The
meeting also is a follow-up
to a Dec. 12 public meeting
where the commission and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service gave an update and
answered questions on the
hydrilla treatment program
implemented last November.
The commission, the
water district, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers
and the University of Florida
will present information on
hydrilla management activi-
ties, herbicide monitoring
reports and herbicide regis-
tration, and an update on
snail kite nesting activity.

These agencies imple-
mented an adaptive
approach to hydrilla treat-
ment to help protect the
endangered Everglade snail
kite by increasing the bird's
access to its food source,
namely apple snails. The
kite has lost most of its his-
toric nesting and feeding
habitat in South Florida
because of drought and
floods, and, in the past few
years, many have moved
north to Lake Tohopekaliga.
In October, at the first
meeting held by the com-
mission and the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service regard-
ing the new treatment plans,
biologists detailed how
hydrilla provides a food
source and a structure on
which apple snails climb to
the surface of the water,


where the Everglade snail
kite can eat them. Abundant
hydrilla and apple snails
make Lake Tohopekaliga
one of the best areas in the
state for snail kites to find
plenty of food and to nest.
As a result, the commis-
sion and the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service are taking
extra precautions when con-
trolling hydrilla in the lake
this winter and spring, to
help the dwindling popula-
tion of snail kites. These
agencies are working to bal-
ance the needs of this
endangered species with the
needs of the people and
businesses that use the lake
or depend on it for their
income.

the meeting, contact Ed
Harris at 407-858-6170.

cans of Puerto Rican descent
lost their lives in Korea, mean-
ing that one in every 42 casu-
alties in the conflict was a
Puerto Rican.
Dennis O. Freytes, of Win-
dermere, a retired lieutenant
colonel in the U.S. Army who
refers to himself as a commu-
nity servant and activist on
Hispanic/Puerto Rican issues,
said the renaming of the park
"did a great service to those
unsung heroes who fought
under the American flag for all
Americans."
"There are thousands of
people in Osceola County of
Puerto Rican heritage and
roots," Freytes said, adding
that his father was in the
Infantry as well. "There also
are some actual 65th Infantry
veterans living there."
What is unique about the reg-
iment, Freytes said, is that the
unit was the only segregated
Hispanic unit in the U.S. Army
and that while these veterans
fought and died for the United
States, they could not vote for its


president a situation that still
exists today.
Freytes, who is vice president
of the National Association for
Uniformed Services, said the
county renaming the park
comes at a time when the status
of Puerto Rico as a territory is
gaining more attention and that
a presidential report on the issue
is due out soon. He added that
Puerto Ricans should be allowed
to vote either to become the
51st state or to become an inde-
pendent nation an improve-
ment over the second-class U.S.
citizenship they now have.
The county and residents of
the Buenaventura Lakes com-
munity will mark the grand re-
opening of the recently renovat-
ed park, which formerly was the
Walk-N-Sticks Executive Golf
Course, with a ribbon cutting at
11:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 24.
No commercial
airboat use of
county ramps
Commissioners on a unani-
mous vote Monday also decid-


ed to cease pursuing vendor
agreements for commercial air-
boat use of two county boat
ramps, one at Whaley's Land-
ing on Lake Tohopekaliga, the
second at Lake Marian.
The commission Jan. 28
reviewed five sites recommend-
ed by staff on county lakes to
determine whether any of them
would be appropriate from
which commercial airboat busi-
nesses promoting eco-tourism
could operate, for .a fee. Only
two sites were recommended
as having the potential to
accommodate such operations.
"Since Jan. 28, I've heard
from many people," Commis-
sioner Fred Hawkins Jr. said,
adding that he spoke with
Kenansville residents in the
Lake Marian area and those in
the area living around Whaley's
Landing. "I kept hearing that
maybe we shouldn't be in this
(leasing of public facilities for
commercial use). I don't want
to put anyone out of business,
but airboat operators can have
.private ventures. I'm going to


join with Commissioners
(Frank) Attkisson and (Michael)
Harford, and say this isn't a
business we should be in."
Harford said he stands by
his original stance that county
boat docks and ramps are
intended for public, not com-
mercial use.
"We don't need to be in
that business," he said.
The commission agreed to
pursue the commercial air-
boat vendor agreements after
passing an ordinance in
December banning all such
operations from public facili-
ties unless vendor agreements
were in place. The comrris-
sion at the time suggested
that smaller operators band
together to bid on a site. The
fees charged would have gone
toward improvements at the
ramps, such as restrooms or
parking lots.

How to stay healthy, and avoid making a difficult decision


(ARA) Health officials emphasize that Americans should stay
home from work when they are sick, but for many, the decision
isn't that easy.
While staying home from work to rest, recover and avoid
infecting coworkers makes sense to most people, other factors
come into play. One in five Americans report feeling pressure to
go to work when sick, and one in three Americans say they
would not get paid when taking a sick day, according to a recent
survey conducted by HALLS, America's number one selling cough
drop.
With those numbers in mind, and added pressure from a
lagging economy, it's not surprising that 44 percent of the sur-
vey's respondents would consider going to work with a fever
and 32 percent said they would go to work no matter how sick
they are.
Staying home sick is never an easy decision, especially if some
of these added pressures apply. The best way to avoid staying
home and protect your health is to take precautions to help
you stay healthy. Here are a few tips to help you stay well and
working this flu season and beyond:
+ Get a flu shot. Getting a flu shot each year is the most
important step you can take to protect yourself against season-
al influenza, according to the Centers for Disease Control.
+ Wash your hands frequently. Use soap and warm water and
scrub for at least 20 seconds -- about the time it takes to recite
the Pledge of Allegiance or sing "Happy Birthday" twice.
+ Keep your desk stocked. Keep hand sanitizer for disinfect-
ing when you can't get to the sink to wash your hands. Keep

lotion handy to avoid cracking skin that can result from frequent
hand washing and disinfecting.
+ Disinfect common surfaces. By frequently using a disinfec-
tant on surfaces that experience frequent contact with multiple
people, you can prevent the spread of germs. This may include
shared desks, phones, doorknobs and computer keyboards.
+ Practice healthy habits. A diet rich in fruits and vegetables
and regular exercise can help boost your immune system to
ward off sickness. Drink eight to 10 glasses of water a day to
help flush toxins from.your system. Get the proper amount of
sleep eight to nine hours for many people to also help keep
your immune system functioning at peak capacity.
+ Keep things fresh. Keeping rooms properly ventilated in the
winter can be challenging and germs can circulate more easily
indoors, so the more time you spend outside, the less you'll be
exposed to other people's germs. Getting outside can also
improve your mood and reduce stress, which helps in fighting
off sickness.
+ Stock up on the essentials in the event you get sick. Make
sure you're prepared by having cough drops, tissues, soap, hand
sanitizer, vitamins and fever reducer while you're still healthy.
If you do get sick, it's best to stay home, rest and recover, if
possible, to prevent spreading the illness to your coworkers and
expedite your recovery. But your most prudent course of action
is to take preventative action to avoid becoming sick in the first
place.

Celebration boys


earn Class 4A


soccer invitation


By Ken Jackson
Sports Writer
Defense wins champi-
onships. If you get tired of
hearing that, look at the Cele-
bration boys soccer team.
Despite scoring just three
goals in three regional playoff
games including one in the
last two combined the
Storm is still alive, and plays in
today's Class 4A state tourna-
ment semifinals at the Univer-
sity of Tampa's Pepin Stadi-
um. Coach Julio Machuca's
team will face Cape Coral at
5:15 p.m.
Celebration (16-1-3) played
Land O'Lakes Sunlake to a
scoreless tie through 100 min-
utes of regulation and over-
time in Friday's Region 2 final
before the host Storm won it,
4-3, on penalty kicks. Goalie
John Birchall got enough of
Sunlake's final shot, taken by
goalie counterpart David
Danahy, to send it wide.
"It may have been wide
anyway, but 'Birch' guessed
right and dove left, he would
have stopped it," Machuca
said.
In the shootout, Mike
Anderson, Dominic Barros,
James Anderson and Jehov
Pardo de Figueroa buried their

shots. Up 4-3, Miguel Cortes
could have won it on his shot,
but Danahy stopped it, setting
up a crucial moment between
he and Birchall, a sophomore.
"I just told myself it was fmy
time to step up and bring it
home for the team," Birchall
said. "There's like a one per-
cent chance of stopping one
of those, you just dive and
hope you guess right and stop
it. When I saw it hit off the
post I just started screaming
and running, I didn't know
where. We're going to state
and it's a dream come true."
That moment was just as
harrowing as all 100 minutes
before it, Machuca said.
"I think I aged a few years
on Friday. The time before it
went to kicks was kind of tor-

ture," he said. "Sunlake sur-
prised us with their speed and
tenacity and got some early
breakthroughs.
"After that, our team
adjusted well and realized they
needed to anticipate their long
passes. At the half our kids
were saying, 'Keep shooting
and the goal will come.' There


was no panic."
Machuca also said the
game was a showcase of two
skilled goalies at their best.
"Birchall had a great game
coming off his line to eliminate
scoring chances, and (Danahy)
played outstanding and kept
them in the game," he said. "I
credit him because I thought


we played well enough to
score a couple goals.
"I didn't say anything to
John going into the PKs. We
work on them in practice and
he's good at reading shooters.
And I told the shooters that
they should feel ready, decide
where you're shooting early
and focus on the ball."


Machuca said that he isn't
concerned about the power
outage that has hit his once-
potent offensive attack. Cen-
ter midfielder Santiago
Echeverri is still serving a sus-
pension for a red card in the
District.6 finals.

Osceola's 'Z'


earns lifting


championship


By Rick Pedone
Sports Editor
Osceola's Zanquina "Z"
Ellison was disappointed Sat-
urday that she didn't break a
state record, but she earned a
pretty good consolation prize
- the 129-pound girls state
weightlifting championship.
Ellison, who powered up
lifts of 175 pounds in the
bench press and 155 pounds
in' the clean and jerk, easily
won her second state title with
a total lift of 330 pounds at
the Kissimmee Civic Center.
"I guess I'm happy,' but I
could have done better," Elli-
son said. "It's nice to win a
championship."
Ellison won at 119 pounds
as a sophomore two years
ago. She also went to the state
meet as a freshman at St.
Cloud High, when she fin-
ished fourth. As a junior last
season, she led all lifters at
129 pounds at the state tour-
nament after the bench press,
but she was unable to com-
plete a clean and jerk because
of a wrist injury and did not
place.
"She was determined to
get back and win it her sen-
ior year," Osceola Coach
Eric Pinellas said. "She could


have clean and jerked 175
pounds (Saturday), which
would have tied her record,
but she didn't want to do
that. She said if she couldn't
break the record, what was
the point? That's why she
was upset with herself."
Two more Osceola County
weightlifters turned in out-
standing efforts Saturday and
placed in their respective
weight classes.
Poinciana's Kandra Ander-
son lifted 170-165-335 to
finish second at 183 pounds,
and Harmony's Melissa Albert
lifted 155-165-320 and fin-
ished third at 135 pounds.
Anderson, the Orange Belt
Conference and sectional
champion, expected to do
well at the state meet, she
said.
"This year I was pretty con-
fident because I was here last
year, and that experience
helped me," she said.
Poinciana Coach Joel
Campbell said that state expe-
rience, plus a lot of work in
the weightroom over the past
year, was the difference.
"She started working on
her technique in the clean and

County

sends 23


wrestlers


to state
By Rick Pedone
Sports Editor
In what is supposed to be a
rebuilding year, Osceola High
is sending a school-record
eight wrestlers to the Class
3A state tournament at the
Lakeland Center Friday and
Saturday.
"If I had said before the
season that we'd have eight
going to the state tourna-
ment, I would have been
crazy," Kowboys Coach Jim
Bird said. "This is a special
group.
A total of 23 Osceola
County wrestlers, including
three regional champions, will
compete at the Class 3A and
Class 2A state tournaments.
The action begins Friday
at 10 a.m. for the first two
rounds. The semifinals
begin Saturday morning
after third-round wrestle-
backs, which start at 9 a.m.
The finals are at 5 p.m.
Admission is $8 per session
(two sessions Saturday).
Parking is $7.
Five Kowboys reached the
finals of the 3A-2 regional at
OHS Saturday and 145-
pounder Pete Baldwin (50-0)
won the regional champi-
onship. Baldwin extended his
national records in career vic-
tories (320) and falls (239) at
the regional meet. He won
the 119-pound state champi-
onship as a freshman in
2008.
Also reaching the finals
were Osceola's E.J. Jimenez
(22-6) at 119, Alex Rivera
(35-13) at 130, Kenny Martin
(30-9) at 152 and Chris
Pagan (42-11) at 171.

Hoops
Continued from page A-8


Coach Kevin Hosford said
the Lions played without two
starters, benched for rules vio-
lations.
Poinciana rallied against
Eustis thanks to hustle under
the glass. Green put in
rebound to start the fourth-
quarter rally, then Marc and
Curry hit put-backs to draw
the Eagles within one, 45-44,
after Curry converted a three-
point play.
Eustis drew back ahead by
five, 49-44, before Curry hit a
pair of free throws and Vinson
drilled a 3-point shot to send it
into overtime.
Eustis led by 1, 55-54, with
1:20 to go in the OT before
Greene hit a driving lay-up
with 1:02 left for the game's
final points.
The Panthers held for the
last shot, but turned it over
with nine seconds left.
"Last year, Oak Ridge just
had us out-matched, and the
year before that, South Lake
jumped on us early," Poin-
ciana Coach Jay Lunce said in


comparing this team's success
to frustrations of the past.
"Everybody we've matched up
with, where size-wise we had a
chance, we've always played
well."
Lunce said the Eagles have
learned to share the ball, and
that has contributed to their
success.
"This is the first group I've
had who treat each other as
family," he said.
Lunce said Leesburg, 22-4,
is quick and athletic, like Poin-
ciana.
"They aren't real big inside,
but I am a little concerned
about matching up with
them," he said. "It was an
upset that they lost to Lake
Weir in the championship
game, but I don't know if it
was a real big upset. I think
they were pretty close."
The Yellow Jackets lost the
district championship to Lake
Weir, 76-75, when Leesburg's
Teron Wallace missed the last
of three free throws with no
time on the clock after being

fouled attempting a despera-
tion 3-point attempt.
Like Poinciana, Leesburg
has a quartet of capable scor-
ers in Wallace, Joe Toolie,
D'maury Jones and Undra
Mitchem, all scoring in double
figures in the championship
game.
Osceola Coach Steve
Mason said the Kowboys are
capable of upending Kathleen,
16-11, today despite a 73-42
loss against district champion


Lake Wales Saturday at Ridge
Community High.
"We worked so hard
preparing for Haines City, we
had nothing left," Mason said.
"It was like last year, Lake
Wales had a real tough emo-
tional game against Winter
Haven in the semifinals, and
the next night we had a run-
ning clock on them."
OHS point guard Michael
Sanchez has been hampered
by an ankle injury. Jedarian


Jackson had 11 points against
Lake Wales.
Mason said aside from a
loss to Longwood Lyman to
end the regular season, the
Kowboys have lost only to
ranked teams. Lake Wales,
No. 4 in Class 5A, has beaten
the Kowboys three times. It
hosts Lakeland Thursday.
"I hope we can get another
chance at Lake Wales. We
have a chance against Kath-
leen," Mason said.


Heritage Christian beat
Liberty Christian, 76-36,
Tuesday in the Florida Christ-
ian Conference playoffs. May-
nard Rowe scored 32 to boost
his career total to 2,201
points. Josh Newman added
25. Heritage will host West
Melbourne today at 7:30 p.m.
The winner advances to the
state tournament Saturday.
Gateway fell at the 6A-6
tournament, 53-42, against
Port St. Lucie Treasure Coast.


Storm
Continued from page A-8
"When you get to this level,
teams play good defense and
pressure the ball everywhere,
and goals are at a premium,"
he said. "With our defense
right now, we feel like one
goal should be enough."
Birchall concurs with the
"One Is Enough" mantra,
because of the play of defend-
ers Anderson, Barros and
Brian Santos.
"I trust those guys with
everything," he said. "They're
the best guys I've probably
ever played with."
Cape Coral represents the
fourth district runner-up the
Storm will see in the playoffs.
"I don't know what to read
into that but it's good for
things to go our way for a
change. We're excited to be
going to the state tournament
for the first time," Machuca
said. "We have to concen-
trate, more than ever, on
committing to our game plan
and embrace the opportunity.
If we play our game and stay
in it we'll do well."
Choctawhatchee and
Miami Belen Jesuit play in
today's other semifinal at 3
p.m. The winners will play for
the 4A championship at 2
p.m. Saturday.

Osceola's Paul Zupofska (top).is one of eight Osceola Kowboys who advanced to the state wrestling tournament
after placing fourth at 140 pounds at last week's 3A-2 regional at the OHS gym.

Wrestlers
Continued from page A-8


Tim Locksmith (41-4),
competing with a separated
shoulder, was third at 125,
while Wade Ridings (13-7) at
135 and Paul Zupofska (39-
12) at 140 were fourth.
Osceola lost two state
champions to graduation
before the season and the
young team lost the Orange
Belt Conference champi-
onship for the first time in five
years to Liberty in December.
"We could have folded up
right then," Bird said.
But, a trip to Pennsylvania
for the Powerade Nationals
seemed to light a spark, Bird
said.
"You could see it a little
bit in Pennsylvania, then we
had a couple of good tour-
naments," he said. "The
practices started getting bet-
ter, the drills started getting
better. We just kept improv-
ing. I'm fortunate to have a
great coaching staff to make
th t happen."
IBrandon (318) won the
teAm championship over the
Kowboys (172.5). Bird said
his team will acquit itself well
in Lakeland.
"They aren't afraid to go
against anyone. In fact, it
might be working the other
way. It could be that teams
see those (Kowboys) sin-
glets, and that's worth a
point or two to us. George
Jenkins and Lakeland at the
district tournament were


good teams, but it seemed
like as that tournament went
on, our guys were believing
it more, and theirs were
believing it less."
The good news for OHS is
that five of the eight state
qualifiers will return, and
three-time state qualifier Fox
Baldwin (57-2), who won the
119-pound regional champi-
onship for Lake Highland
Prep last week, is expected to
join OHS next season as a
freshman.
Gateway (53) placed 10th
Saturday.
The Panthers have two
state qualifiers in 112-pound
runner-up Alex Velez and
Christian Vazquez, fourth at
152.
"We've made some major
strides this season," Pan-
thers Coach Jon Smorin
said. "When we took over
(two seasons ago), we had
eight kids to work with. Now
we have 20, and we're
growing. Alex has a chance
to do some good things, and
he's only a sophomore."
Liberty (129.5) was fourth
at the 2A-2 tournament at
Sebring behind champion
Spring Hill Springstead (222),
Lake Gibson (218.5) and
Oviedo (167).
Celebration (102) was sev-
enth, Harmony (90) was
eighth and St. Cloud (22.5)
was 22nd.
Six Liberty wrestlers moved


to the state tournament, led
by 189-pound regional cham-
pion Aric Fernandez.
Fernandez won a 12-0
decision over Andrew Herr of
River Ridge for the first
regional crown in the school's
history.
"Aric beat an undefeated
wrestler from River Ridge and
has the skill and toughness to
win a state championship,"
Coach Chris Kelly said.
Felix Betancourt was sec-
ond at 130 pounds, and J.J.
Elisis lost in the 160 finals by
an injury default.
Josh Garcia was third at
152 pounds, and Liberty's
Robert Torres was fourth at
103 and Joel Martinez was
fourth at 215.
"We're proud of the results
we have so far. We're in a very
tough region," Coach Chris
Kelly said. "We told our guys if
you can place at this event,
you can place at state."
Celebration sends four
wrestlers to the Class 2A state
tournament, led by 119-
pound regional champion
Josh Douglas (47-7).
Douglas defeated Lake Gib-
son's Jacob Phillips, 5-4, in
double overtime.
Coach Vic Lorenzano said
Douglas is the first Storm
wrestler to earn both district
and regional championships
during the same season.
He is joined by teammates
Cameron Ward, third at 189,


J.J. Francis at 145 and heavy-
weight Alvaro Noreno, both
fourth. Noreno pinned three
opponents to qualify.
Francis scored a takedown
and a near fall in the final five
seconds of the wrestlebacks
to earn his state tournament
berth.
Three Harmony wrestlers
reached the Class 2A state
tournament as Ariel
Dominguez at 103 and Matt
Vaughn at 135 both made it
to the finals. Chris Grillo took
third at 145.
"I'm happy for the three
guys who qualified but disap-
pointed that more didn't qual-
ify. A couple of our seniors
had some very tough draws
and caught some tough
breaks," Coach Chris Todd
said.
No wrestlers from St.
Cloud or Poinciana advanced
to the state meet.

jerk, and because of that she
was able to get up 165, which
is a record for her," Campbell
said.
Albert squeezed a bottle of
honey into her mouth before
each lift, and the eventual out-
come proved to be just as
sweet for her.
"I guess it gives me a little
extra boost," she said.
Albert, the OBC champion,
said she thought she would do
well at the state meet and she
did, hitting personal records on
all of her lifts.
"I had high goals, even
though it was the first state
meet for me," she said. "I try to
stay calm, because if you get
nervous, you can't perform."
Even though Albert, a dual


enrollment student at Harmo-
ny who has competed at
rodeos, seemed to easily lift
the last clean and jerk, she
said she had performed as
well as she could.
"I might have been able to
get a little more over my head,
but you have to clean it first
and I couldn't have gone any
higher," she said.
Spruce Creek won the
team championship.
St. Cloud's Iliana Bonilla
lifted 105-120-225 at 101
pounds, and Annie Barberi
cleared 120-120-240 at 110
pounds, but neither placed
among the top six.

Football fans know that
quarterback Brett Favre's
streak of consecutive games
started came to an end during
the 2010 season at 297,
remarkable for the brutal NFL.
Still, when sports fans think of
games-played streaks, the most
prominent is baseball's Cal
Ripken Jr., with 2,632 in a row
to break Lou Gerhrig's legendary
mark. In the NBA, the record
belongs to A.C. Green with
1,192 consecutive games
played. The NHL mark was set
by Doug Jarvis at 964 straight.
And the NASCAR record was
posted by Ricky Rudd 788
starts in a row.

It's an age-old superstition to
bury something for good luck.
But get this: the Canadian who
prepared the ice for the 2002
Salt Lake City Olympics placed
a loonie (a one dollar Canadian
coin) below center ice. The
Canadian men's hockey team
went on to capture its first gold
medal in 50 years as did the
women's squad. The "lucky
loonie" can now be seen at the
Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.

Sports memorabilia has become
a big-time money game over the
last 20 years or so. Here's the

Kissimmee Main Street honored by the state


By Brian McBride
Associate Editor
The news reached Kissimmee Main Street
Executive Director Cheryl Fish in the form of
an e-mail with a subject headline that said,
"Congratulations."
Florida Secretary of State Kurt S. Browning
recently announced that Kissimmee Main
Street was designated as the Florida Main
Street Program of the Month for February.
Selection for this award is based on a
record of active participation in the Florida
Main Street Program.
"Kissimmee Main Street has been an exem-
plary program with exceptional leadership and
community involvement," Browning said.
"Residents and visitors alike benefit from suc-
cesses of this revitalization effort which has
enhanced the city's downtown."
Fish said the accomplishment was a joint effort
as it's only she and a part-time staff member run-
ning the Main Street office, 421 Broadway.
"We have a lot of volunteers and board
members that give a lot of heart because they
love downtown Kissimmee," Fish said.
The Main Street program is tasked with
bringing economic development and visitors to
the downtown area through special events and
preserving and promoting Kissimmee's rich
heritage, Fish said.
Incorporated in 1883, the city's thriving
downtown offers ample pedestrian shopping
areas, rehabilitated historic buildings and pro-
vides a venue. for community events and cele-
brations, Browning stated in a press release,
adding that Kissimmee also is well known for
its nearby tourism attractions and outdoor
recreation opportunities.
This is the second time Main Street has
won the award under Fish, having earned the
honor in October of last year.
"I hope it makes more people interested in
Main Street and want to join," Fish said of the
award.
Fish said she likes to think that the award


News-Gazette Photo/Andrew Sullivan
Kissimmee Main Street Executive Director Cheryl Fish stands in front of her office building at 421 Broadway. Kissimmee Main
Street was designated as the Florida Main Street Program of the Month for February.


also sets an "example" to the 49 other Main
Street programs across the state because of
the achievement.
"It's a wonderful feeling, it really is," she said.
"This kind of award makes it all worthwhile."
At the 2010 Annual Florida Main Street Sec-
retary of State Awards Dinner, Kissimmee Main
Street won a Merit Award for Outstanding Image
Campaign or Promotional Material for its historic
walking tour and visitor guide.
Kissimmee Main Street officials stated that


since its designation as a Florida Main Street
Community in 1997, Kissimmee's downtown has
experienced an exciting rebirth, with 400 con-
struction and rehabilitation projects totaling more
than $30.5 million worth of investment, 259 busi-
ness openings, and 587 new job creations. In
addition, volunteers have donated more than
12,200 hours of their time to meetings and
events. Florida Main Street is a technical assis-
tance program of the Bureau of Historic Preser-
vation, Division of Historical Resources, Florida


Department of State. The bureau conducts
statewide programs aimed at identifying, evaluat-
ing, and preserving Florida's historical resources.
Main Street, with its emphasis on preservation, is
an effective strategy for achieving these goals in
Florida's historic retail districts.

Auditions for singing contest set for March


Got talent?
The 2011 Central Florida's Next
Biggest Star may be you. Auditions for
this singing competition will be Satur-
day, March 5, at Living Water Fellow-
ship, 4101 Pleasant Hill Road.
Selected participants (age 15 to 17)
will go on to compete April 9 for the
title of Central Florida's Next Biggest
Star. The grand prize is $1,000.
The April event is a formal dinner.
Admission is $50 for this black-tie affair.
This is the fourth annual Next Biggest
Star. Previous ones were held at venues
such as the Omni Rosen and Disney. To
have this in our own backyard is impres-
sive, but even more important is the
cause it benefits.
Central Florida's Next Biggest Star is a
singing competition to benefit Children's
Advocacy Center for Osceola County. The
Children's Advocacy Center (CAC) pro-
vides services to children and non-offend-
ing family members who are victims of
sexual and physical abuse. CAC coordi-
nates law enforcement, child protective
services, mental health, medical personnel
and victim advocacy to provide the most
comprehensive services available so that
children are not victimized again.
If you've got the chops, audition"
March 5. To schedule a time, contact


Sandy Geroux at 407-
856-1188. This could
be the start of some-
thing big!
Urgent Care Poin-
ciana has been helping
patients since Dec. 1. It
had its ribbon-cutting
on Feb. 9. The cheerful
staff offered tours of
this latest addition to
the community
Dr. Corliss Oliver
has been seeing patients there since
December. The amicable physician is
especially proud of her above-and-beyond
bedside manner.
"I had seen a patient and was con-
cerned about her. I followed up and called.
She was surprised," Oliver said. That helps
to make Urgent Care Poinciana more than
just a "treat em and street em" facility.
Should you need the services, keep
Urgent Care Poinciana in mind. Urgent
Care Poinciana is at 3759 Pleasant Hill
Road (in the Shops of Bellalago near
Walgreens).
The Poinciana Area Council (PAC),
which operates under an umbrella of
the Kissimmee/Osceola County Cham-


ber of Commerce, established a schol-
arship fund in 2007. Every year, PAC
awards two $1,000 scholarships to
Poinciana high school seniors. The
graduating 2011 high school senior
must reside in ZIP codes 34758 or
34759. Students may be out-of-zoned
to attend school in another area as
long as they reside in ZIP code 34758
or 34759.
'Students applying for the scholarship
must have a grade point average of 2.5 or
higher and have a letter of recommendation
from a teacher. The student also must write
a 500-word essay. More information may
be obtained through the school's guidance
counselor or by e-mail: Idcato@yahoo.com.
Every little bit helps. One thousand dol-
lars could pay for several credits at a college,
courses at a technical school or books. The
scholarship money is paid directly to the
school the student will be attending.
The Poinciana Area Council has raised
this money with the intent that it be given to
a Poinciana student. Take the time to apply.
The deadline is Monday, Feb. 28.

information that you would like to share,

mail news@osceolanewsgazette.com


Make the right financial moves to retire comfortably


We all want to enjoy a
comfortable' retirement. But
to do so, we need to make
different moves and consider
different issues at different
times of our lives.
To help illustrate this
point, let's look at three indi-
viduals: Alice, who is just
starting her career; Bob, who
is nearing retirement; and
Charlie, who has recently
retired.
Let's start with Alice. As a
young worker, Alice most
likely has four decades ahead
of her until she retires. Yet,
she realizes that it's never too
soon to start saving for retire-
ment, so she has already
begun contributing to her
401(k) and to an IRA. And
since she has so much time
ahead of her, she has decided
to invest aggressively, putting
much of her contributions in
growth-oriented vehicles. The
market will certainly have its
dips in the future.and Alice's
account values could rise and
fall from year to year, but the
longer, she holds her invest-
ments, the less of an impact
that market extremes should
have on her 401(k), IRA and
other accounts.
Now let's turn our atten-
tion to Bob. Since he is with-
in a few years of retirement,
he has some key decisions to
make. For one thing, he must
decide if it's time to change
the investment mix in his
IRA, 401(k) and other
accounts. Because Bob does-
n't have much time to over-
come market volatility and


since he'd
like to main-
tain the
gains he has
already
achieved, he
may decide
to become
more con-
servative
with his
investments.
Co-ns e -
quently, he
may choose
to move some of his invest-
ment dollars from stocks to
bonds and other fixed-income
securities. Realizing, howev-
er, that he may spend two or
three decades in retirement,
and knowing that he will need
to stay ahead of inflation, he
doesn't abandon all his
growth-oriented investments.
Furthermore, Bob decides
that he may need to bolster
his retirement income, so he
considers whether an annu-
ity, which is designed to pro-
vide him with an income
stream he can't outlive, is
appropriate for his situation.
Our final life stages
investor is Charlie. He has
recently retired, so his biggest


concern is making sure he
doesn't outlive his financial
resources. Therefore, he may
need to consider a variety of
moves. For starters, he
should determine when to
start taking Social Security
and when to begin taking
withdrawals from his IRA and
401(k) plans. (For a tradition-
al IRA and a 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored plan,
Charlie, like all investors,
must start taking withdrawals
no later than age 70-and-a-
half.) After deciding when to
start taking withdrawals from
his retirement plans, he'll
also need to calculate how
much he can afford to take
each year without emptying
the accounts. Finally, he
might need to rebalance his
overall investment portfolio
to provide himself with more
income.
For help in making the
types of choices described
above, you may want to work
with a financial professional,
but in any case, you. need to
be prepared to take the right
steps at the right times to
enjoy the retirement lifestyle
you've envisioned.

Upgrade the home's exterior for appeal


As spring approaches, now is a great time
to step back and survey what you can do to
improve the look of your home for the warm
summer months and for years to come.
Could the house use an exterior upgrade?
Want to see a boost of color, but are afraid to
stray from neutrals? Want the home to look
like the ones in magazines and television
shows?
Renovating a home's exterior is one way to
dramatically improve the overall curb appeal.
"Many homes that were built post-war dur-
ing the mid to late 20th century lost the histor-
ical, architectural appeal of older homes due to
the need for mass produced, affordable hous-
ing," said Deryl Patterson, .partner at BSB
Design, a leading national residential architec-
tural firm. "Updating those tired exterior eleva-
tions with historical details and mixed materials
can help give homes a timeless appeal and
boost resale value."
Some homeowners might feel they do not
have the tools they need to begin a renovation,
and can become overwhelmed when thinking
about the process. The good news is today's
leading architects and product manufacturers
are working to give homeowners the inspira-
tion and confidence to move forward with an
exterior renovation.
"Today's homeowners and homebuyers
want a low-maintenance, energy-efficient
house that is unique in style and stands out in
the neighborhood," John Stephenson of Ply
Gem, a building products manufacturer who
has introduced a collection of inspirational
home style visuals and guidelines to help home-
owners begin conversations with their contrac-
tor, said.
To help arm homeowners with the tools
they need to upgrade their exterior, Ply Gem
and BSB Design offer these tips.
Realize the possibilities
Years ago, it was virtually impossible to
maintain historically accurate character when
building or renovating using low-maintenance
materials. Thanks to technological advance-
ments in product manufacturing processes,
builders and homeowners can now achieve
beautiful, colorful home designs without the
maintenance and cost of natural materials.
Many products, such as insulated siding and
triple pane windows, also offer the added ben-
efit of energy efficiency.
Which architectural style suits your personal
style?
Knowing which home style you're partial to


'. .. . .

Look to collections, like The Designed Exterior Collection by Ply Gem, that simplify exterior home color selection by identifying
palettes that work for particular architectural styles, such as The Craftsman, shown here.


will help narrow down the features you add to
your home in a renovation. For an old-world,
European style, consider the architectural
details of the French Country, Spanish eclectic
or Tuscan. For a more contemporary or transi-
tional aesthetic, look to the Prairie and Crafts-
man. And for traditional styles, Shingle and
Georgian features work well.
Don't be color shy
Exterior home color selection can be an
overwhelming process, especially because it's
one of the longest-term decisions that home-
owners have to make. However, going beyond
white or beige and using the right color combi-
nations can take a home from drab to stun-
ning.
"A good rule of thumb is to select three or


four coordinating colors and use them on dif-
ferent elevations and architectural details of the
home, including shutters, trim and gables,"
Patterson said. Look to collections, like The
Designed Exterior Collection by Ply Gem, that
simplify color selection by identifying palettes
that work for each architectural style. Another
easy way to incorporate color is by mixing in
other materials, such as stone veneer and bold
window exteriors, with vinyl siding.
Be particular when it comes
to architecture
Each architectural style has key defining fea-
tures that reflect the era in which it was intro-
duced. To stay true to the elements that char-
acterize the particular style, work with your
contractor or architect and determine which


materials should be used to achieve the look
you desire. Consider features such as low-
pitched roofs for modern styles like the Crafts-
man and Prairie, use of stone veneer or stucco
in European-inspired styles or incorporation of
hand-split shakes in the shingle style. Window
design is also an important aspect of architec-
tural styling that is often overlooked. Colonial
grilles offer a traditional style, while fixed or
casement windows with minimal grilles provide
a streamlined, modern look.
To help take the guesswork out of architec-
tural styling and color selection, websites like
www.DesignedExterior.com offer tried and true
combinations and design specifications. For
more ideas on upgrading your home's exterior,
also visit www.BSBDesign.com.

Mortgage rates hit 10-month high
ByMarcieGeffner Bankrate.com
Stomp. Stomp. Stomp.That was the sound that mortgage brokers and bor-
rowers heard this week as interest rates on home loans marched inexorably
upward.
Rates began to climb last week and continued higher in the current period,
according to PeterThompson; a senior loan officer at Prospect Mortgage in
Naperville, Ill.
"Rates were in a flat range, where they were pretty much sideways for over a
month, and now it has broken out and is going in a higher direction:' he says.
The benchmark 30-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 21 basis points this week, to
5.23 percent, according to the Bankrate.com national survey of large lenders.
The mortgages in this week's survey had an average total of 0.45 discount and
origination points. One year ago, the mortgage index was 5.15 percent; four
weeks ago, it was 4.94 percent.


The 30-year fixed hasn't been so high since the April 7 survey 10 months ago.
The benchmark 15-year fixed-rate mortgage rose 19 basis points, to 4.48
percent. The benchmark 5/1 adjustable-rate mortgage rose 17 basis points, to
4.01 percent, and the benchmark 30-year, fixed-rate jumbo mortgage rose 20
basis points, to 5.74 percent.
Rates are on the rise because optimism has won out, at least temporarily, in
the tug-of-war between positive and negative economic news.
The biggest announcement was a Bureau of Labor Statistics, or BLS, report Fri-
day that the national unemployment rate dropped 0.4 percent to 9 percent in
January, though only 36,000 net jobs were created during the month. A grow-
ing economy needs 120,000 to 150,000 new jobs monthly to absorb workers
who've jumped into the labor pool, but investors seemed mesmerized by the 9
percent figure, a significant improvement on the jobs front.

Is the 1900s Shubert upright grand piano valuable?


Q: I have a Shubert upright
grand piano that was made in
New York during the early
1900s. I'd like to know if it is
valuable. Maria, Albuquerque,
N.M.
A: I hate to begin my answer
on a sour note, but there is little
market for vintage upright
pianos. The pictures you sent
me suggest that the cabinet is
probably tiger oak, but there also
appears to be a great deal of
wear. It would be considered a
practice piano and probably not
worth -all that much. A quick
check of pianos being offered for
sale in Albuquerque revealed
dozens of uprights similar to
yours, mostly priced in the $200
to $350 range.
For a second opinion, you

Q: I have an original hand-
written letter from Charles
Schulz, the cartoonist and cre-
ator of the "Peanuts" comic
strip. I would like to sell it and
was told by an appraiser for a
major auction company years


ago that it was worth $600.
What do you think? Theresa,
Apache Junction, Ariz.
A: I think your autographed
letter is worth about $75. There
are, of course, exceptions to
every rule. For a second opinion,
you might want to hire the serv-
ices of an appraiser, and you
should expect to pay for this
service. I found several Schulz
autographed items mostly
books for sale at various Inter-
net sites, the majority priced in
the $50 to $100 range. Signed
original comic strips are, of
course, worth much more.

Q: I have an opportunity to
buy five magic sets from the
1930s and '40s for $50. Since
most appear to be complete, I


am tempted. What do you think?
- Roger, Albuquerque, N.M.
A: Give in to your tempta-
tion. Most magic sets, especial-
ly vintage ones that are com-
plete, are quite collectible and
certainly worth more than $10
each. For example, a "Hokus-
Pokus" magic set from the
1930s recently sold on eBay for
$258.

Q: I've got an old claw-foot
tub that looks shabby but is
pretty sound that I'd like to
install in the bathroom I'm
remodeling. I'd like to refinish
it, but am not sure what materi-
als to use or how long it would
take. What do you recom-
mend? Jim H., Philadelphia
A: You do have two options:
the do-it-yourself refinish or a
professional refinish. I may
once have espoused the idea
that you should tackle a tub
refinishing job yourself, but
over time have found that I pre-
fer to spend my energies on
other aspects of a bathroom
remodel and not on trying to
restore tubs and sinks.
With the do-it-yourself
option there's the investment
in the right equipment and
materials to do the job, and
numerous hours are required
to get it done. The tub needs
to be scrubbed beyond clean
and the surface prepped for
the refinishing medium. Then


This is
a hammer

Mazzotta

the finish needs to be applied
properly to avoid streaking or
later cracking or peeling. All of
this takes time and care, and
you've got to work in a very
well-ventilated area.
Even with all that, the refin-
ish may go poorly.
This is where professional
refinishing comes in. One of
the bonuses of hiring a pro to
do the refinish job is that this is
a pretty competitive service in
most areas, with several com-
panies vying for your business.
So you can get multiple quotes
before making the decision to
either have a professional han-
dle the refinish, or attempt the
job yourself.

READER ADVISORY: the National Trade Association
we belong to has purchased the following classified.
Determining the value of their service or product is
advised by this publication. In order to avoid
misunderstandings, some advertisers do not offer
employment but rather supply the readers with manu-
als, directories and other materials designed to help
their clients establish mail order selling and other busi-
nesses at home. Under NO circumstance should you
send any money in advance or give the client your
checking, license ID, or credit card numbers. Also
beware of ads that claim to guarantee loans regardless
of credit and note that if a credit repair company does a
business only over the phone it s illegal to request any z
money before delivering its service. All funds are based
in US dollars. 800 numbers may or may not reach
