There may be bigger holidays, such as Christmas and Thanksgiving, but while everyone else eats, Mom is stuck in the kitchen. But Sunday is her day. The American tradition of Mothers Day has its roots in Englands Mothering Day, a holiday dating to the 1600s, when servants and trade workers were allowed to travel back to their towns of origin to visit their families. And mother was the guest of honor, with presents of cakes and flowers. The first American settlers discontinued the practice, but it Take mom out in style SundayWorkshops held for job seekersSt. Cloud annexation woes aired By Fallan Patterson Staff W riter St. Cloud is expanding, but its not urban sprawl residents are worried about: its what being annexed into the city limits means for them. Some residents have expressed concern to the city that their utility and property tax bills would increase or that residents would be burdened with the cost of switching from a septic tank to the citys sewer system. Its these misconceptions St. Cloud City Council members and city staff said they hope to clarify to avoid future confusion from who will be the citys newest members. It is very important that property owners within the St. Cloud area understand the (citys) annexing process, Councilwoman Mickey Hopper said. We truly want to ensure that no ones quality of life with our great community is affected in any negative way. Dennis Ragsdale, administrator for the citys Growth Management Services, a division of its planning and zoning department, has heard from hundreds of residents since the St. Cloud City Council agreed in 2011 to review all encumbered properties for potential annexation. The council agreed to develop a schedule for annexation after Osceola County officials pinpointed issues with the citys former annexation pattern, Ragsdale said. Many property owners hadnt realized they or the prior owners or developers, in order to get city water services, signed a notice of encumbrance, kept on file as a public record, which allows the city to begin annexation proceedings once their property becomes eligible. Basically, youre volunteering to annex once you become eligible, Ragsdale said. Theres no big land grab. Its just to do whats logical, reasonable and efficient. Encumbered properties eligible for annexation include those that are adjacent to current city property, including across the street; are reasonably compacted and connect to the urban service boundary as determined by both the city and Osceola County. Encumbered properties that would create a new enclave are ineligible. However, the property is eligible for annexation if it can close an enclave. Its really not going to change the potential growth there anymore than if they werent annexed, Ragsdale said. Most of these people use all the city services anyway. Having all of a street annexed aids both the city and the county in terms of making service delivery such as water, garbage collection, law enforcement and fire rescue easier for everyone involved. The city has a mutual service agreement in place with the county to minimize response times for emergencies, but according to Ragsdale, annexation saves money News-Gazette P hoto/ A ndrew S ullivanPhil Davis, of professional competitor No Secrets BBQ, slices his teams entry in the brisket category at last weekends annual Smokin Blues Bikes & BBQ, held at the St. Cloud lakefront.

for both the service provider and residents. The biggest misconception residents have, Ragsdale said, is that annexation requires an immediate hook-up to the citys sewer system. Its totally controlled by the (states) public health department, he said. We have a long-range plan for the extension of sewer, but we dont have the intention of just doing it to collect additional sewage fees. Some property owners could see a slight increase in their property taxes due to an increased assessed property value. However, positive changes could occur, including the removal of a water service surcharge imposed by the city to county residents, as well as the removal of solid waster and fire protection fees on their tax bill. The decrease could be as high as 25 percent, Hopper said. The majority of regulations will remain unchanged as both the city and county enforce similar pet rules and neither entity allows controlled burning. Newly annexed residents also will enjoy the citys recreational activities at a lower rate such as swimming lessons at the city pool and, according to Ragsdale, fire insurance coverage is lower in the city compared to the county. We have a progression to follow. As we annex, it will create more properties possibly eligible for annexation, Ragsdale said, adding the process could take more than a year. Eventually, the goal is that everything in the water/sewer boundary will be in city limits. The city is moving forward, targeting subdivisions first as annexing those involves more people. Both the homeowner and the tenant, if different, receive a notice of annexation. The next scheduled annexations include the subdivisions of Hidden Oaks, Sugar Belt Oaks Unit II and Villagio. For residents with concerns, the next scheduled public hearing of the Planning Commission will be May 15 at City Hall. The City Council will hear first and second/final hearings on June 14th and June 28th, respectively, for those properties, according to city spokeswoman Sandra Ramirez.

hundreds of acres of woodland and swamp. It was surrounded by barbwire fence and fortified entrenchments made of railroad timbers, cement pilings and guarded by pitbulls. Faellas trailer on the property is fitted with firing ports cut into the sides and he was stockpiling ammunition, ready-to-eat meals, water and other supplies, records show. Faellas arsenal included AK-47 assault rifles, 12-gauge s hotguns, TEC-9 semiautomatic firearms and 9 mm pistols. Additionally, Faella was attempting to manufacture ricin, which is c onsidered a weapon of mass destruction. After a twoyear investigation into the white supremacist organization American Front run by Faella, multiple federal and l ocal law enforcement agencies began dismantling the organization with the arrests of Faella and several of his members. Faella, 39, was arrested along with his wife, Patricia Faella, 36; Kent Ryan McLellan, 22, of 4350 Story Road in St. Cloud; Diane Stephanie Stevens, 28, of 928 S. Park Court in Kissimmee; Mark Stewart M cGowan J r., 29, and his wife, Jennifer McGowan, 25, both of 402 Simpson Road in Kissimmee; Dustin Perry, 21, of 1705 Hiawatha Dr. in Kissimmee; Christopher Brooks, 27, of Palm Bay; and Richard Stockman, 23, of 104 Edgewater Dr. in St. Cloud. The suspects were all charged with paramilitary training, attempting to shoot into an occupied dwelling and evidence of prejudices while committing offenses. Stockman and Brooks also were charged with possessing a weapon as convicted felons. This investigation is a result of our on-going partnership with local law enforcement and federal agencies in a concentrated effort to stamp out hate crime in our community, State Attorney Lawson Lamar said in a press release. The operation was a collaborative effort from the Osceola County Sheriffs Office, the St. Cloud Police Department, the Orange County Sheriffs Office, the State Attorneys Office, the Metro Bureau of Investigation and the FBIs Joint Terrorism Task Force, according to Danielle Tavernier, spokeswoman for the State Attorneys Office. According to Faellas arrest warrant, American Front members considered themselves protectors of the white race. They used a racial slur to describe African-Americans they visualized attacking while participating in paramilitary the act of teaching or demonstrating to other persons the use, application or making of a firearm and techniques of causing injury or death to people and combat training. Last November, Faella began sharing his vision of creating an Aryan Compound where AF members could live when the U.S. government fails. In January, the warrant stated, Faella sent AF members to the tourist attraction Old Town in Kissimmee to recruit new members in order to collect dues to purchase more weapons and aid in expansion and propaganda. AF members began making their own Ghillie suits layer camouflage full-body attire and homemade body armor in February, the warrant stated. Faella started planning to attack Orlando City Hall to bring attention and new members to the organization. Additionally, Faella asked members such as McLellan to lure members of SHARPS (Skin Heads against Racial Prejudice) and REDS, another anti-racist skinhead organization, to an undisclosed location to ambush them and put their teeth to the curb, a reference to violence portrayed in the movie American History X. Convicted felons Stockman and Brooks carried sharpened screwdrivers and short shovels to prevent charges of carrying weapons should they get stopped by law enforcement, the warrant stated. The investigation ended when the government informants cover was nearly discovered by Faella and the AF leader began planning retaliation against the REDS May 1, considered May Day, known as an anarchist protest day. The informant, who was once a patched member of American Front, told investigators he is willing to testify against the suspects, according to reports.Student brings gun to schoolKissimmee police arrested a student Monday for bring a gun to a local religious school and for threatening fellow students with the gun to keep them from telling administrators. Kissimmee police officers Monday arrived at Heritage Christian School, 1500 E. Vine St. in Kissimmee, around 1 p.m. in reference to a weapons violation. The principal told officers a 13-year-old student had brought a weapon onto campus. The student had asked one of his 12-year-old classmates to hold the gun inside his book bag and place it in his locker. At lunch, the student asked the friend to retrieve the gun so he could show it off. The student took the gun into the restroom and showed it to several students. After showing the students the gun, the 13-yearold boy threatened the students with the gun if they told anyone. Principal Karla Beaver said the schools students are trained to tell teachers or administrators if they see another student with a weapon on campus. School administration heard of the incident and was able to locate the gun inside the book bag of the 12-year-old students locker. The gun was not loaded and no ammunition was located with the gun., according to spokeswoman Stacie Miller. Both students were arrested and transported to the Kissimmee Police Department for questioning. Based on the information received, the 13-year-old student was charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds, possession of a weapon by a child under the age of 18 and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. He was transported to the Orange County Juvenile Detention Center where he is held on no bond, Miller said. The 12-year-old friend was charged with possession of a weapon on school grounds and possession of a weapon by a child under the age of 18. He was released into his mothers custody at the Kissimmee Police Department, Miller said. Thankfully this was gun was not loaded and the administration was made aware of this situation, Kissimmee Police Chief Fran Iwanski said.

Using a disinfecting chemical. If you cannot boil water, you should put eight drops of common household bleach, which is about 1/8 of a teaspoon, into one gallon of tap water, then shake it, and allow it to stand for 30 minutes before drinking. If the water is cloudy, use 16 drops, about 1/4 teaspoon of bleach instead of eight, shake it, and let it stand for 30 minutes. There should be a slight chlorine odor. Use common household bleach that has 5 to 6 percent active ingredients. Use food grade containers. Dont use bleach that has perfume scents added. Use water purification tablets or iodine that many sports and camping stores sell You also can buy commercial bottled water for consumption and food preparation. Consumption includes brushing teeth, washing fruits and vegetables and homemade ice. Tap water may be used for showering, baths, shaving and washing, so long as care is taken not to swallow or allow water in eyes or nose or mouth. Children and disabled individuals should have their baths supervised to ensure water is not ingested. The time spent bathing should be minimized. Though the risk of illness is minimal, individuals who have recent surgical wounds or have a chronic illness may want to consider using bottled or boiled water for cleansing until the notice is lifted.

During the 2010 season, there were 17 starting pitchers whose fastballs averaged at least 93 mph. They combined for a 3.43 ERA and a .601 winning percentage (244-162). The 17 slowest starters, who averaged 89 mph or less, had a combined 4.13 ERA with a .476 winning percentage (185-204). By the way, speed and youth go hand in hand. Of those 17 fastest pitchers, 15 were between 23 and 28 years old. The two exceptions were veterans C.C. Sabathia and A. J. Burnett. For major league hitters, the eyes have it. A group of ophthalmologists tested the vision of 387 players over a four-year period and were amazed to find that more than 80% of them had the best possible eyesight measurable by the tests. The average visibility score was 20-13, meaning the viewer can see something at 20 feet that an average person has to be within 13 feet to see. In other words, they can see the ball clearly sooner. Only a few measured worse than 20-20, and most of them were pitchers. Ottawa Senators defenseman Erik Karlsson finished the NHL regular season 10th in the league in scoring with 78 points, the first defenseman to place in the top ten since Paul Coffey did it with Detroit in 1994-95. But Karlsson played in 81 games, which means he fell short of matching Washingtons Mike Green in 2009-10 (76 points in 75 games) and Detroits Nicklas Lidstrom in 2005-06 (80 in 80) as the only defensemen this century to average at least a point per game.

A superhero to usTo the editor: Now that it is National Nurses Week, my family would like to acknowledge nurses for their endless dedication and the sweet healing touch they deliver to those they care for. During two recent medical crises involving our mother, we couldnt begin to recognize all of the nurses that have impacted our lives that were involved in our moms care. The list is endless (especially from Osceola Regional Medical Center and Hospice of the Comforter) as is the dedication and empathy that these nurses displayed to those in their care. Unfortunately, not all nurses are regarded with the same respect and admiration. It is our understanding that agency nurses are not commonly acknowledged as being tender, caring and professional nurses but we would like to dispute that myth. The quality of agency nurses that cared for our mom were among the best we have ever been exposed to in any doctor office, clinic or hospital. One in particular, Penny Viola, a LPN from Central Florida Nurses Agency, went beyond the call of duty. While maintaining a very professional demeanor, she emanated a very caring nature, expressed genuine compassion and empathy for all family members and our mom received extremely competent medical treatment. Pennys attention to detail, extreme observation skills and her ability to communicate with the family brought us from a state of despair to a sense of comfort. We could easily confuse Penny with being a superhero. She put in some extremely long hours with little rest between shifts, was amazingly adaptable to moms changing medical needs and was very fast on her feet when the situation required quick thinking and her judgment never seemed impaired even while experiencing sleep deprivation. She kept us updated on changes (good and bad) with our mom and was an advocate for her when we needed one. Never have we seen such commitment to a patient, to a job, to a family, to a career. Penny, you are our new superhero. You display all the qualities of an excellent nurse and all the caring empathy of a wonderful caring person. You saved moms life and have assisted in keeping her comfortable and we want to thank you for all youve done for our family. You are our nurse of the year.

During the one-day food drive, letter carriers will collect nonperishable food donations left by mailboxes along their routes as they deliver the mail Saturday to help stock local food banks. Leave nonperishable food by your mailbox Saturday or it drop off at the local post o ffice. Examples of non-perishable items include: canned soup, canned meats and fish, anned vegetables, fruits and juices and boxed goods, but no glass. Last year, Central Florida letter carriers collected more than 376,000 pounds of food. Food collected in a community stays in that community. Studies show that hunger in America is a more serious problem than most people realize. It is estimated that 50 million Americans, i ncluding 17-million chil dren do not have enough to eat. Generous donations of nonperishable food items from our communities will greatly help those with a real need. Individuals and groups interested in becoming a part of the solution to hunger in their communities are encouraged to call For more information, contact Mindy Ortiz, Volunteer Services, Second Harvest Food Bank, at 407295-8844. On Monday, SunRail will be the focus of two major Central Florida transportation events.

SPORTSSPORTS Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/OsceolaSportsNew bats make big hits scarce Power drain Editors note: The 7A-2 regional semifinal baseball game between Liberty and Osceola was postponed by rain Tuesday. The winner of that game will play Brandon Friday at 7 p.m. for the regional championship. Osceola would host Brandon, Liberty would travel. For the latest information, see aroundosceola.com.By Ken Jackson For the News-Gazette Baseball players and coaches spend much of their time poring over abbreviated stats to form their strategy. Theres the familiar ERA and RBI, and the new-age WHIP and OPS. This year, though, the one stat on most of their minds is BBCOR, and how its replaced BESR. Were talking bats. Beginning this season, for an aluminum baseball bat to conform to National High School Federation guidelines, it must meet BBCOR, or Batted Ball Coefficient of Restitution Standard, specifications. Those standards replace the BESR (Ball Exit Speed Ratio) guideline, which the National Federation of High Schools had used for aluminum bats since before current high school players were born. A BBCOR bat lacks the trampoline effect, or a momentary recoiling of the bat surface, that a BESR bat is capable of producing. At impact that spring effect would allow a well-hit ball to leave the bat at tremendous speed, aiding the hitter but putting pitchers and infielders at risk of being injured by line drives that were upon fielders in an instant. The NCAA put their guidelines in place for the 2011 season, and after favorable results, the NFHS followed suit this year. Thus, high school players have been stepping into the batters box this season with a bat with essentially the specifications of a wood bat a bat that wont break. Coaches saw it coming and had players swinging BBCOR or wood bats during fall conditioning. The effect, the reduction of the jump balls get off the new bats, has been about what was expected. And it has definitely affected the game, Harmony Coach Mike Fields said. Even in practice the ball just does not go as far, he said. They come back into the dugout shaking their heads sometimes. They said they got all of it and they probably did, but the ball just does not travel as far. Some of the kids have figured out they need to worry more about line drives, and some have not. Fields said that the Longhorns, who reached the regional quarterfinals before losing 2-1 in eight innings against Liberty last week, saw a power vacuum for much of the season. Wyatt Dering had two homers, including a threerun shot against St. Cloud. P.J. Mussleman hit a two-run homer and Tim Helser had a grand slam in a 17-0 win over outmanned Central Florida Christian. That wasnt the norm for most of the season, though. Osceola Coach Scott Birchler has one of the most power-packed lineups in the schools history with 11 seniors, but he said the new bat standards have reduced big bang innings. Runs are down because there is no forgiveness in the new technology. Most batted balls that miss the sweet spot are outs, Birchler said. A lot of one run games. Teams are bunting in all situations: no outs, one out, even two outs with runners on base, just trying to get a few runs knowing you dont need many to win. The emphasis this season was on pitching and defense. At Gateway, Coach Rob Hammond knew his team would be strong in those departments. It explains why the Panthers clinched the No. 1 seed for the District 7A-5 tournament and defended their Orange Belt Conference title before losing to OHS in the district tournament semifinal round. The bats had a huge influence on our games. In general, hits are down, especially extra base hits, he said. Our stats were down in every category, except in stolen bases. We had 15 more than last season through 17 games, because generating runs is at a premium. On the other hand, Hammond said his staffs pitching stats looked stellar. Fields said that comes at the expense of the average hitter. They are not getting the hits they might have gotten last year when they do not hit it squarely, or off the handle, Fields said. It is a much easier out. But it helps our pitchers that the ball stays in the park more often. Birchler agrees. The good hitters will still hit; the average guy has to really work to hit the sweet spot, he said. Perhaps Birchlers Kowboys figured that out late in the season. Edwin Rios and J.R. Charles each hit four homers; Charles had a pair at the district tournament two weeks ago. The (bat) model makes a difference, and I like mine, Charles said. You just have to square it up. Last year, even if you didnt, you could still get a nice hit. Not anymore. Even with the less explosive bats, the game itself hasnt c hanged that much, Gateways Hammond said. I didnt feel any safer with a one-run lead than before, he said. As far as deciding if I like the way the new bats have changed the game, the jury is still out. I like pitchers duels ... and three-run homers.Liberty batter Kevin Quinones makes contact during a recent 7A-5 district tournament game against Poinciana. Coaches say the new BBCOR bat standards have reduced the number of hits and runs their teams produce.News-Gazette Photo/Andrew Sullivan By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Heritage Christian School won the Florida Christian Conference state baseball championship Saturday at Central Winds Park in Winter Springs, 12-1, in five innings over Grace Christian. The Eagles capped a perfect season (14-0) in conference play, 14-2 overall, as Christian Munoz struck out 13 batters to earn the victory. It really was everybody who did a great job, Coach Jeremy Beaver said. Christian pitched a great game, we hit, we scored runs, we stole bases. Everyone was on, everything we tried worked. Munoz, Trey Epperson and Dallas Beaver all scored twice and helped the Eagles put the game out of reach. The Eagles beat Grace twice during the regular season by 12-5 and 4-2 scores, but Coach Beaver said he expected the championship game to be much closer. I really thought it would be a tight game. I expected it to be a lot like the last one we played, but they didnt see Christian before because he had a minor injury the last time we played and we didnt want to push him, Beaver said. The victory avenged Graces victory over Heritage in the semifinal round of the 2011 state tournament, Beaver said. That bothered the guys, so I think they felt a lot better about things after we won Saturday, Beaver said. This team deserved it. Ive pushed them pretty hard at times, but they really rose to the occasion and got it done. Its been very enjoyable to see them develop into a very good team. The roster includes Yamil Calderon, Moises Robles, Sean Gonzalez, Chris Herrador, Davielle Justiniano, Dominick Maldonado, Alex Tirado, A.J. Uriarte, Matt Herrador, Lemuel Mora and Matthew Smith. Hal Epperson is the assistant coach. The Lady Eagles softball team didnt enjoy the same success at Saturdays state tournament at Central Winds Park. The Lady Eagles, 7-4, coached by Mike Cool, lost to top-seeded Eastland Christian, 13-3, in the title game. We got off to a good start and hit the ball well, but we made a few mistakes in the field, Cool said. We had a very successful season, but we are young. Were looking forward to next season. By Rick Pedone Sports Editor For the first time since 2007 Osceola County did not have a track state champion, but several local athletes turned in medal-winning performances at the Class 3A state meet at the University of North Florida at Jacksonville Friday. St. Clouds 4 x 800 girls relay (9:31.20) of Ashlyn Stadtlander, Katelyn Stadtlander, Octavia Gonzalez and Anaya Reid set a school record and placed third. It was quite amazing. The girls ran a great race, St. Cloud Coach Ettie Singleton said. Bulldogs boys Coach Kevin Harkema, who works with the distance runners, added, That was definitely a highlight for me because we have been working so hard for so long. The Stadtlanders and Reid, seniors, capped outstanding track and cross country careers at St. Cloud, helping their teams earn multiple state meet appearances. Libertys Markel Brown and Harmonys Daniel Foshee placed in two events at the Class 3A meet. Brown, a sophomore, was sixth (22-5) in the long jump and eighth (46-0) in the triple jump. Liberty Coach Robert Pauley said Browns accomplishment was impressive, especially for a sophomore. I felt Markel had a good day, not a great day. He was jumping well, just couldnt get 23 feet, which would have won the state, Pauley said. Even the No. 1 long jumper in the state didnt make finals, so it was a strange day. Markel jumped well in the triple jump and hes the first athlete in school history to place in two events, so that was a great sight. Foshee was seventh (40.01) in the 300 hurdles and eighth (15.14) in the 110 hurdles. It was definitely a great way to end the season. He worked really hard this year and it paid off so we were really proud and excited for him, Horns Coach Jake Grantham said. St. Clouds boys 4 x 100 relay of Eric Pfeifer, Austyn Jandrew, Travon Williams and Jordan Reus was on track to medal before Pfeifer pulled his hamstring on the first leg, leading to a lane disqualification in the finals. St. Cloud (6) was 34 th in the female teams standings behind Northwestern (76). Liberty (4) was 46 th and Harmony (3) was 51 st in the male standings behind Bartram Trail (37). Two athletes from Gateway competed at the Class 4A meet at Jacksonville Saturday but did not medal.

According to a company press release, t he Bosto n Market Corporation recently donated $524,000 to Give Kids The World Village. The Village in Kissimmee is a Central Florida, nonprofit storybook resort providing week-long, cost-free, fantasy vacations to families who have children with terminal illnesses from around the world. Since 2008, Boston Market Corporation has dedicated funds to help build and operate Katies Kitchen, a free standing Boston Market restaurant located in the center of the Village. The $524,000 donation was raised last fall through the annual sale of coupon books purchased at Boston Market restaurants nationwide. Offering more than $37 in savings, the coupon book was sold for $1, with all net proceeds benefitting GKTW.

It was recognized by the national nonprofit KaBOOM!, which listed 213 playful cities and towns. This marks the second year in a row that Kissimmee is listed among the nations Playful City U.S.A. communities. It is a testament to our commitment to providing quality recreation programs in a safe environment, where kids can enjoy being kids, Dan Loubier director of the Parks, Recreation and Public Facilities Department, said. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, play is critical to healthy brain development. It allows children to use their creativity while simultaneously developing imagination, dexterity and physical, cognitive and emotional strength. With only one-in-five children in the U.S. currently living within walking distance of a park or playground, a key platform in combating the play deficit is Playful City U.S.A. Presented by The Humana Foundation, Playful City U.S.A. is a national program advocating for local policies that increase play opportunities for children and is a key platform in combating the play deficit. KaBOOM!, the national non-profit organization dedicated to saving play, created Playful City U.S.A. in 2007 to help local governments address the Play Deficit by ensuring their children have the time and space they need to play.

If youre a mother, youll probably get some nice cards and flowers on Mothers Day. But of course, your greatest gifts are your children themselves. And since you want to see them happy and financially secure, perhaps you can use this Mothers Day as an opportunity to consider ways to help your children at various stages of their lives. So, lets take a look at steps you can take:When your children are young Teach them to be savers Encourage young children to put away part of their allowance, or any money they receive for household jobs, in a savings account. Offer to match their contributions dollar for dollar. Help them become investors: Consider giving your children a few shares of stock in companies with which they are familiar. By following the movements of their stocks with them, you can explain how the markets work and how increasing share ownership is one key to helping build wealth. Contribute to a college savings plan: One of the best things you can do to boost your childrens chances of success in life is to help them go to college. Youve got several good college-savings vehicles available, such as a 529 plans, Coverdell Education Savings Accounts and custodial accounts. Your financial advisor can help you choose the vehicle that suits your needs and objectives. When your children enter the working world Encourage IRA contributions An Individual Retirement Account (IRA) is a great retirement savings vehicle. As long as your children have earned income, they can contribute to an IRA, so you may want to help them max out on their contributions each year. While you cant directly contribute to a childs IRA, you can write a check to your child and encourage him or her to use it for funding an IRA. Make long-term care arrangements If you needed long-term care, such as an extended nursing home stay, and you had inadequate financial preparations, the burden could fall on your children. Now is the time to consult with your financial advisor to begin preparing for possible long-term care costs.When your children reach middle age Communicate your financial situation and estate plans: Dont leave adult children in the dark as to your financial information. Share everything you can about how much you own, where you keep your assets and how you plan to eventually distribute them. Courtesy of Edward Jones, Robert Rosen, financial advisor 109 E.

KaBOOM! also selected Kissimmee for its outstanding dedication to play. Kissimmee focuses on volunteer programs to keep the citizens involved with parks to create a greater sense of ownership, including Spruce-Up and Build Days. In 2011, the City opened a new skate park after two teens shared their interest for this new play space with City leaders. Cities like Kissimmee are key allies in the fight to combat the play deficit and serve as outstanding role models for government and community leaders across the country, Darell Hammond, KaBOOM! Founder and CEO, said. Playful City U.S.A. communities are developing some of the most innovative concepts and cost-effective programs. T odays children spend less time playing outside than previous generations in part because only 20 percent live within walking distance of a park or playground. This play deficit is having profound consequences for kids physically, as well as mentally and socially because children need a place to play every day in order to be active and healthy. The 213 Playful City U.S.A. communities ar e now eligible for $15,000, $20,000 and $30,000 grants via Lets Play, a community partnership led by Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, to get kids and families active nationwide. Grant r ecipients will be announced on June 4. For more information on the KaBOOM!

Theres one in every neighborhood the house with the bright green grass, perfectly trimmed shrubs and flowers in full bloom. As you look at your own lawn, plagued with weeds and sparse patches, you wonder how your neighbor is able to achieve such a beautiful outdoor space. The secret isnt in how much time or money can be invested, but rather taking the right steps at the right time to e liminate lawn a nd garde n problems. Here are some common landscaping issues and the easy steps any homeowner can take to correct them:Sparse, brown lawnIf your lawn is looking sparse and brown, the likely culprit is thatch. Thatch is the layer of dead grass, leaves and stems that block water and nutrients from reaching the roots. To revive your grass, you need to remove this layer and prime your lawn for strong re-growth. A de-thatcher, also known as a power rake, is the easiest way to get rid of the layer of thatch. Then, youll want to use an aerator to poke small holes in the dirt so that nutrients, air and moisture can get to the roots. These two pieces of equipment are critical for repairing sparse, brown lawn, but purchasing them outright is costly. Consider renting them from your local American Rental Association rental store. Find the one nearest you by www. RentalHQ.com. WeedsNo single method will eliminate all weeds, so the best action really depends on what types of weeds you have. Here are some tips on the most common: Dandelion Its imperative to dig out dandelions before they go to seed. You can also spot treat dandelions with a broadleaf weed killer. If you do this, make sure your product does not kill grass. White clover This weed can spread quickly on undernourished lawn. Combat by watering regularly and applying nitrogen fertilizer. You can also use a broadleaf weed killer for spot treatments. Crab grass If its early in the season, consider applying a pre-emergence crabgrass herbicide. Because crabgrass thrives on shorter lawns, set your mower to a higher setting, about 2.5 to 3 inches.Overgrown hedges, shrubs and treesMeticulously trimmed hedges and trees make a yard look perfectly manicured. The tools of the trade will make the job a breeze, but you dont need to purchase a tree trimmer or chainsaw. You can easily rent those at your local American Rental Association rental store for a fraction of the cost of buying them. The most important consideration when operating a chain saw or trimmer is safety. When you rent, you get personalized training on the equipment. Tell the rental professional what you want to accomplish and they will help you find the equipment you need to get the job done, while providing you with tips on how to use the equipment and safety. When youre done trimming and clearing out your area, renting a chipper can HOMEFINDER HOMEFINDER Section C REAL ESTATE IN OSCEOLA & SURROUNDING COUNTIES www.aroundosceola.com May 10, 2012 HOME IMPROVEMENT Page C2 CLASSIFIEDS Pages C3 C5 Springtime has arrived and its time to dust off the to do list. But, how does a homeowner decide which projects should take priority? According to Mark Clement, host of MyFixItUpLife home improvement radio show, start by selecting those projects that are the most important for enhancing the functionality of the home. National Home Improvement Month in May is the ideal time to shine the spotlight on annual home projects that should never be overlooked, Clement, a professional contractor in Pennsylvania, said. Sure its great to work outside in the garden this time of year, but that task should take second place behind evaluating and fixing major components of the house. A homes curb appeal is important, but working on the structural aspects of the home should always take priority. For example, every year homeowners should be evaluating the condition of their roof, siding, windows, gutters and other exterior products that they rely on daily to keep their family safe and secure. Clement, who is currently renovating his own 100-year-old home, said he understood that all products in and on the house will eventually need to be replaced. We just replaced the original wood door on our home with a fiberglass door, he said. That old door should have been removed a decade ago because it lost its functionality and was an energy drain on our home. The new Therma-Tru fiberglass door is energy-efficient, stylish and helps secure our home. According to Clement, there is a must do list of five items that homeowners should review every year during National Home Improvement Month. May is the ideal time weatherwise to do these checkups and replacement work for the home, Clement said. It makes sense economically to make any needed changes to the roof, windows or doors when such work will have the least impact on energy bills. The list recommended by Clement includes: Check the roof. Using either a ladder or binoculars from across the street, look for problem areas, such as missing or broken shingles, along with roofing tiles that may be flapping in the wind. These are all indications that a new roof may be in your future. If thats the case, research the newer products on the market, such as polymer shake and slate roofing tiles. Clean and assess the homes siding. Pressure-washing works well for many homes to remove dirt and algae that can grow on siding, but remember never to pressure-wash windows or their screens. The extreme high pressure could crack or destroy the caulking around the units. While cleaning the siding, make sure to check for changes in the exterior from the previous year and be alert to buckling, warping or insect damage that may need to be fixed. Evaluate the windows. If you find that windows in the home dont operate easily, theres air leaking in or out of the units, or theres condensation between the glass panes, then it may be time to seriously consider replacement windows. Vinyl framed windows have the highest growth rate in the country due to their energy-efficiency, aesthetic appeal and durability. Some of the best have fusion-welded corners and multi-chambered construction. Plus, maintenance hassles are so low youll forget the horrors of rotting frames, scraping and repainting that come with wood windows. Check on the gutters Dont underest imate the importance of the gutter system on the home. Each year homeowners should check to make sure their gutters are unclogged and remain sloped for proper drainage. Plus, make sure the water running off the roof doesnt cause damage to the building structure, landscaping or property below the roof. The Gutter Installers Association recommended using GIA-certified contractors to perform a physical inspection of your existing gutters to check for leaks, ensure proper slope for good drainage and offer advice on a variety of gutter protection systems. Spend time with the main entry door. If homeowners can see light around the door from the inside, the door is hard to close or lock, or the door itself is warped, its time to consider a new door. Even if you cant see light, air may be moving through gaps in the weather stripping at a surprising rate. Think about the weather conditions that a homes door faces along with the energy bills. If either run to the extreme, consider replacing an entryway with a high-performance fiberglass door (which can have up to four times more insulation value than wood doors).

Page C2, Q: I read your advice to Christine H. about figuring out where a puddle of water at the base of her toilet was coming from. You said that if no other source of the leak could be detected, such as from the inlet valve, she should contact a plumber to replace the seal at the base of the toilet. Why cant she just tighten down the bolts on either side of the toilet base? This might fix the problem and cost zero dollars. -Kent C., Atlanta A: Thats certainly worth a try, since it really doesnt cost anything. But be careful that the bolts (or really, the nuts securing the bolts) arent tightened too much, as they could crack the porcelain base, requiring a complete replacement of the toilet. If this doesnt resolve the issue, a plumber should come in, at least in the case of Christine H. For hearty do-it-yourselfers who have some experience repairing pipes or replacing faucets, replacing the wax toilet seal can be done in an afternoon or less. And the quicker its done, the better, as the leak isnt just causing an inconveniently wet floor; it could also be affecting the subfloor and causing silent water damage. To replace the toilet seal, youll need a new wax toilet ring, some plumbers putty and a strong helper. Turn off the water at the shutoff valve, usually located on the wall behind and below the toilet tank. Flush the toilet, then remove as much water from the toilet bowl as possible, first using a small cup and then a sponge. Next, detach the inlet tube from the shutoff valve and from the base of the toilet tank. Unbolt the tank from the toilet base and carefully lift off. Then, unscrew the nuts attaching the base of the toilet to the floor. With your helper, carefully rock the toilet base back and forth to loosen the seals and caulking around the base, then lift the toilet base up. Next, tilt the toilet base so you can access the bottom and wipe away all the old putty and wax. Clean the floor and the area around the drain pipe as well, so its completely dry and free of putty. Put the replacement wax ring on the floor around the drain pipe. Then, place plumbers putty around the foot of the toilet base -one way is to create a putty rope and press it around the perimeter. With your helper, lift the toilet base and position it over the wax ring and drain pipe and bolts. Ease it into position by rocking and pressing the base down so that the new ring sits tightly in place. Attach the nuts to the bolts on either side of the base and tighten carefully. Reattach the tank to the base, attach the water supply line to the tank and shutoff valve, and turn on the water supply, checking to make sure the supply line connection doesnt leak. Finally, trim away the excess plumbers putty from the foot of the toilet. HOME TIP: Does the toilet base need to be sealed to the floor? Yes, for a number of reasons, and because its required by building code in most states.

Sounds simple enough, but its also easy for plant novices to overwater which can kill your plants and flowers just as easily as under watering them. Start by always watering during the early morning or late evening hours. Watering during peak sun hours will cause most of the water to evaporate and little will reach the plants roots. Research the recommended watering schedule for your lawn and plants so that you can create a weekly watering schedule. Some plants may only need watering once a week, while others may need it daily. You can also ask your local nursery or the Extension Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture for planting and watering recommendations in your area.Striped lawnNothing is more frustrating than the homeowner who spends lots of time on yard work only to wake up one day to a striped lawn. If you have healthy lines of green grass t hat a lternate with yellow or brown stripes, likely the cause is uneven fertilizer application. The trick to fertilizing evenly with a drop spreader is overlapping wheel tracks by an inch or two. This will help ensure no area gets missed and any potential for stripes is eliminated.LandscapeContinued from Page C-1 Q: I have a tire ashtray that I think is probably from the 1930s. Are these collectible? -Carl, Dayton, Ohio A: Most of the tire ashtrays that Ive seen being offered for sale were originally given away as premiums by service stations, tire manufacturers and garages. The earliest style s were crafted of glass circled by a miniature rubber tire. On the tire is embossed the name of the company. Ashtrays of this type produced before about 1950 are especially collectible. Typical prices are Goodrich Double Eagle, $125; Firestone Deluxe Champion, $45; Zenith, $40; and Jetzon, $20. As with most collectibles, condition is extremely important. For non-smokers, some of the ashtrays were issued that featured a pin tray. *** Q: My mom collected Avon bottles, and I have inherited them. I know nothing about Avon and current values. Can you help me? -Susan, Stigler, Okla. A: The California Perfume Company was founded in 1886 and the Avon line was not introduced until about 40 years later. Collecting the earlier items is still competitive, but ones issued after about 1960 have little or no value to serious enthusiasts. After monitoring eBay for several days, I still believe that the Avon market has softened. There are several guidebooks available at amazon.com, but you should take the prices listed in them with some caution. For example, one guide lists a Nile Blue Bath Urn for $15, but it actually sells for about $5. *** Q: I have a reverse painting on glass identified as Scene in Scotland. Any information you can give me would be appreciated. -Barbara, Sun City, Ariz. A: Such paintings were especially popular during the early 20th century. They were painted by a variety of artists; some signed their work, and others did not. Paintings on glass of this type generally sell in the $50 to $100 range depending on subject matter, condition and desirability. *** Q: I have a sheet of 29-cent stamps honoring Elvis Presley. Are they valuable or should I use them? -Theresa, Nashua, N.H. A: I spoke to several stamp collectors, who seem to agree that they are only worth face value. My advice would be to use them.

OSCAR Our REALTOR members have a busy month ahead from joining forces with REALTORS across the nation to advocate for homeownership in Washington, DC to training for local success and preparing leadership for the future ahead. Its only May and we have already surpassed our member ship goals for 2012. We are rekindling our relationships with past members and meeting many newcomers to the real estate profession. I must say that watching a housing recovery is much better than witnessing a downturn! We are looking for ward to participating with the City of Kissimmees Lane and we encourage our neighbors to join in this worthy cause and fun event.
