By Ken Jackson Staff W riter The Farmers Market at Toho Square, a downtown Kissimmee Thursday morning and early-afternoon fixture, celebrates its 25th anniversary this summer. One of the many secrets to its longevity and success has been rolling with and embracing change, and coincidently the market is going through some this summer. The Thursday fixture will be moving to Tuesday evenings, from 4-8 p.m. on October 9 to take advantage of that seasons more temperate weather. Rain is a four-letter word, Karen Ford, market manager since its 1987 beginnings, said. The fair will move two blocks from Pleasant Street and Darlington Avenue to the Kissimmee Civic Center, where it has been home off-and-on over time to the collection of local and out-of-state produce and plant brokers and other assorted sellers of baked goods, jewelry, and crafts. Theres one final change that is tugging at the heartstrings of those associated with the market, Kissimmee Main Street and the Downtown Business Association. Ford is retiring her post, leaving the operation in younger but just as capable hands. This is a good time, its slow right now in the ebb and flow of winter to summer, she said. Its the locals that drive the market right now. Ford, 64, and her husband, Vince, who passed away late last year, were driving forces of DBA and the market since throughout a history that she hadnt even realized reached its silver anniversary. I didnt even realize it until last week, when Kelly (Trace, Kissimmee Main Street director) showed me some old newspaper clippings, she said. Ford said her motivation to be near family and remain vibrant is the motivation for her to retire to the Daytona Beach area, where shell be closer to her grandchildren, ages 5 and 2. She said she plans to remain active in her roles with farmers markets in Winter Park and Celebration on the weekends in the short term. I wouldnt be moving if not for [Vinces passing], she said. I didnt want to feel like Im living in my car. The travel would be an issue, and frankly, its time. It will be a change of habit. What will I do on Thursdays? I dont know what my hobbies are yet. Its exciting and scary at the same time. Management of the market now falls into the hands of someone fully invested in the Kissimmee community. Kayla Burton, a lifelong resident and Osceola High School graduate, will take on the duties as part of her new role as Event Coordinator for Kissimmee Main Street. Yes, I have big shoes to fill. Karens done a wonderful job, Burton, 22, who attended Marist College in Poughkeepsie, NY, on a volleyball scholarship after a decorated Kowboys career and earned a public relations and marketing degree, said Thursday morning while making the rounds of the market. She brings unique college experiences she interned in New York and studied abroad in London to her new role of collaborating the markets many facets. Deep down I always wanted to come back here, and Im happy I have a chance to give back to my community. My family is, too, Burton said. My job is to sustain the great work shes done, and see what we can do to make it an even better experience for the customers and the vendors. Ford said she feels Burton will lend a fresh set of ideas to the market. New and improved is something that can be embraced. Even to this day theres never a dull moment, and I get asked and ask new questions after all these years, she said. Ford said Burton will inherit a handful of concerns. The whole area is growing and the demographics are changing, Ford said. The number of snowbirds who come for the season is dropping as they pass on. Their children are mostly still working so they only come down for a week or so. The concerns are about what to do to keep the money coming in, and get the tourists who stay in the area The Florida Commission on Ethics reported in a press release Wednesday that it found no probable cause to believe that Osceola County School Board member Cindy Hartig misused her position by attempting to intimidate construction personnel for the benefit of her own company. The commission concluded no evidence was found linking Hartig to using her board position to defeat the award of a contract to a company that orginally won the bid, or that she misused her position to cancel a contract with an architecture firm because of the firms donations to a former school board members campaign. The alleged violation stemmed from a bid protest filed by Bedrock Industries which stated Hartig had influenced the vote to have them replaced by another company in an email to t hen-superintendent Michael Grego about former School Board member John McKays involvement with the firm. www.aroundosceola.com www.holaosceola.com 113TH YEAR SATURDAY EDITION June 23, 2012 50 CENTSOSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTEOSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTEFor the latest activities, events and classes, see ...

A-6Inside By Fallan Patterson Staff W riter Osceola County School District Superintendent Terry Andrews in an email to district administrators Thursday evening announced he is moving up his impending retirement date by nine months due to numerous allegations by School Board member Cindy Hartig. Andrews was slated to retire in June 2013. However, after Tuesdays School Board meeting where Chairwoman Barbara Horn motioned for his termination due to breach of contract and Hartigs 45-minute presentation of e vidence of h is alleged wrongdoings, Andrews will now retire Oct. 31. It was clear to me at the June 19th School Board meeting that the allegations set forth by Ms. Hartig and Ms. Horn were actually taken into consideration by two of the other Board members, Andrews wrote in the email, For the record, I deny these unproven, damaging and false accusations. If I have not proven objectively to this Board, my accomplishments and intentions for this district over the last year, then there is no point in continuing. Ms. Hartig will go to any lengths and will not stop until she has ruined me and in that process, ruined the forward progress the district has made to date and continue to hurt innocent people, he added. As stated during the June 19th Board meeting, I am very proud of the faculties, staff and students of this county and wish them all continued success. It has been an honor to serve in this district. Andrews sent his email attached with multiple emails from various School Board members questioning some of the allegations Hartig set forth Tuesday. The distortion of words by Mr. Andrews and picking out only parts of a meeting that for is yet another violation of his contract and both the Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct, Hartig said in an email to School Board attorney Larry Brown, which was included in Andrews retirement announcement. I would encourage everyone to go back and listen to the admission of non-truths Mr. Andrews told (Tuesday), and let your conscience be your guide. In Tuesdays meeting, Hartig took offense to Andrews stating at an April workshop that board members attend meetings without Superintendent retiring early due to false accusations made by School Board member Hartig cleared of ethics violations Andrews Hartig The Osceola County School Board Tuesday appointed Karen Casey Corbett as principa l of Partin Settlement Elementary, after the former principa l was arrested June 15 on drug charges.

By Fallan Patterson Staff W riter While students are out for the summer, the Osceola County School District is filling their classrooms with new computers and interactive whiteboards while utilizing the old machines for homeless students. As part of a plan to exceed 2015 statutory requirements to increase digital delivery of content and comply with the extended online testing requirements, multiple departments pulled together to furnish all Title 1 elementary schools with new computers. Title 1 schools are those with at least 40 percent of their student population receiving free or reduced lunch. Thanks to Title 1 roll-forward funding totaling $2.6 million, the district purchased 3,700 new computers as part of the Elementary Computer Infusion Plan to jump the district from 42 percent of the 2015 goal to nearly 100 percent of the goal. Our goal is to have four to five computers in each classroom, said Mark Munas, superintendent for schools support services. To save money, the district is employing 11 high school and college students on a part-time basis to assist with installation. Those students are currently inventorying schools. That process alone will save us in the neighborhood of $200,000, Munas said, adding the district previously employed an outside company for technology installation. Its a tremendous cost savings for us. I pride myself on being cheap. You need to be the best steward of the money as possible. Older computers that still support software and operating system specifications will be moved to middle and high schools to help with the need for additional machines for online testing, the district said. Technology is a great tool for motivating and engaging students in the classroom, and it dramatically increases the viability of students in the work force, Superintendent Terry Andrews said. This aggressive new plan to bring more computers in the classroom will directly benefit students as they will have additional learning resources right at their fingertips. Additionally, the district is introducing a Students in Transition computer program, which will allow those students considered homeless to loan computers to aid with schoolwork. The district has identified 2,600 transitional students in the system with an estimated 1,500 students who also may be transitional. Those considered transitional are students who live in motels, hotels, campgrounds, cares, parks, or in emergency or transitional shelters, or are doubled up with friends, or awaiting foster care placement. Due to their precarious living situations, the students may not have consistent access to computers, which could limit them academically and put them behind their peers. The program will use computers previously considered too old for classroom use that were sold for $15 each to a scrap company, Munas said. Instead, in a partnership with the Foundation for the Kiwanis Club of Kissimmee, the computers will be loaned to the students. We like to think of it as a library system but we know we may or may not get some of those back, Munas said. The computers will be tested and refurbished by students from the Technical Education Center of Osceola and be fitted with wireless cards for Internet connection and a basic word processing program. Most hotels and fast food restaurants have free Wi-Fi connections the students can utilize, Munas said. You can get a (soda) and sit outside and do your homework there, he said. It kind of levels the playing field for kids. Andrews developed the program, which was approved by the Osceola County School Board. Repurposing these machines to our students in transition will help to level the playing field for learning resources in the home, Andrews said. This program is a win-win for everyone, especially students. Our TECO students will be helping others less fortunate through their service of working on the computers. It also involves the community in a greater way through the Kiwanis Club, and, more importantly, it puts computers in the hands of children who can really benefit from them.Additional technological advancesBellalago Academy principal Wendy Honeycutt secured a nearly $300,000 donation from the Education Facility Benefit District, a part owner of the school, which paid for two complete computer labs in December. The donation also will fund the summer installation of interactive white boards in every classroom, including electives such as music and art, and 15 sets of handheld student response systems. I heard they had money so I asked for them to donate it for technology, Honeycutt said. Its going to be such a great resource and tool for teachers and students. Additionally, Munas spent two months upgrading the districts internal security system. We feel a whole lot better about security now, he said. Munas and the districts technology department also is currently upgrading the districts server and updating the operating system districtwide, an extensive process that Munas hopes to have completed by December. By completing the upgrade in-house, the district is saving nearly $530,000, Munas said. In general, were looking at how technology dollars have been spent and how they can be spent in the future, he said. We want to put as much back into the classroom as possible.School District boosting classroom technology to meet student needs File PhotoIn this 2009 file photo, students at the Harmony Community School had the opportunity to interact with a SMART table unit for the first time. Osceola County schools will be significantly bolstering the number of computers available to students over the summer.

Hartig alleged Andrews disparaged the School Board by stating the exorbitant legal fees the Osceola County School District are due to lawsuits because of board members. She challenged his statement by providing multiple examples of legal, issues including 97 discrimination cases from employees and lawsuits pertaining to facilities and imminent domain. Hartig also alleged Andrews breached his contract for failing to terminate district employees for a variety of misconduct, including a coach who took a questionable photograph with a student and a teacher who allegedly got drunk at a golf tournament and mooned attendees on the course. Hartig also alleged Tuesday Andrews previously said he was afraid to fire a black principal because of her race and a potential lawsuit. I made a mistake when I agreed to appointing Mr. Andrews and I will stick my neck out to correct my mistake, Hartig said in the email. School Board Jay Wheeler was the lone vote against appointing Andrews as superintendent in June 2011 after the School Board forced former superintendent Michael Grego out of the position and held an extensive replacement search. He was first appointed as interim superintendent in April after Grego left. Wheeler called Hartigs presentation, in which she cited multiple statues Andrews had allegedly violated, as political grandstanding and not the way to win an election. I dont believe anything in here. Mr. Andrews has done everything he can to move this school district forward despite that fact that we have board members who show up (to meetings) unprepared, he said Tuesday. Getting rid of Mr. Andrews is the worst thing we could do for this school district right now with where were at.AndrewsContinued from Page A-1 Groover Contact Fallan Patterson at 321-402-0434 or by email at fpatterson@osceolanews gazette.com.

Page A4, 4 School Board at it againTo the Editor: So the School Board is upset again with a superintendent. What a surprise! That is two in less than a year. First, Dr. Grego and now our functionally challenged School Board tried to drive yet another superintendent out. And Superintendent Andrews was t heir own hand picked guy You all remember how this board disregarded their very own superintendent search procedures and appointed Mr. Andrews to the position with no warning. Now it seems they cant get along with him either. Does anyone else see a trend here? Superintendent Andrews did everything but resign last month in an address to the School Board. In a very eloquent, to the point and factual manner the superintendent laid out his concerns with the board, challenged the board to step up and do its job and offered to step down if that was their wish. His main concerns with the board included their interference in his day to day operational responsibilities, their constant unprofessional actions and vindictive political attacks against one another and their lack of preparedness for meetings including not having read the meeting agenda. In other words the superintendent simply asked them to do their jobs and earn their salaries as board members. None of the superintendents comments nor his frustrations as a professional educator and administrator were unexpected given the history of this board. It is truly dysfunctional. Each of the board members personal agendas seem to out weigh their obligation to furthering the education of our children. One board member came to the board with ongoing law suites against another board member. One board member appears to be using the School Board as a stepping stone to further his political career. Yet another came to the board with a temperament that includes rants, threats, anger etc. and a nature that seems wrong for public service. Yet another appears to just be marking time, following the lead of the power on the board and not properly preparing for the meetings and necessary decisions that need to be made. And yet another, who normally is the butt of the attacks from the other school board members and many times justifiably so, continues to fuel the fire with comments that are usually found on the school yard. Although most of us were upset with the way this board shoved superintendent Andrews down everyones throat last year, most of us gave the superintendent the benefit of the doubt. His long career in education and administration here in Osceola were definitely a plus. Over the past year superintendent Andrews has worked hard toward continuing the progress that former superintendent Dr. Grego had started before this board forced him out in April of 2011. Superintendent Andrews seems to have won the respect of the majority of the teachers and so far has proved a good steward of our tax dollars. Does anyone on this School Board ever put their personal feelings aside for the good of the children of Osceola County? It doesnt seem so. What policies have the school board put forth in the past 18 months since their election to directly further education in this county? How much communication have they had with the politicians in Tallahassee focused on more funds and help for our county? What has this board done to better protect our children from harm and bolster security on our campuses? What policies have they proposed to offer our teachers more incentives to produce their best efforts everyday? These are just some of the things the board should be focused on. Not trying to run the day to day operation of the schools. November is only a few months away. Some of these folks will be up for reelection. It is up to us to fix the problems via the voting booths. If we dont our childrens education will remain in jeopardy and the superintendents position will become a revolving door. It is up to us to insure the best education we can for our children. Frank Iaquinto St. CloudHistory teaches lessonsTo the Editor: While history never repeats itself exactly, it doe s teach lessons we would ignore at great risk. I am specifically writing about the comparison of the experience of the Great Depression with that of the Great Recession and its aftermath. The Great Depression was caused in part by little regulation of bank practices as was the case with the Great Recession. Also, unions were weak as they are today. The same with low wage levels and weak consumer demand. Similarly, certain sectors of the economy, agriculture in the 1920s and manufacturing in the 2000s, were suffering severe economic problems. Agriculture suffered due to huge debts contracted to support the war effort in World War I. Of course, today we have great consumer and small business debt. These problems were compounded by the Hoover administration which called for a balanced budget and cuts in government spending as a cure for the Depression. This is, of course, the Republican plan today to get the U.S. economy moving ahead. The economy by 1932 had reached equilibrium at depression levels. The current situation is very near that condition today. Franklin Roosevelt inherited the Depression just as Barack Obama inherited the Recession when they took office as presidents. Roosevelt initiated the New Deal to revive the economy while Obama initiated his stimulus package (which, in part, was modeled on President Bushs efforts to restore prosperity). Both Democratic presidents had some success in the efforts to cure the economys ills. Both presidents were essentially moderates in their approach to government spending. Roosevelts plans were actually working, but in 1937 in fear of the growing government debt he cut back on government spending, thus throwing the economic back into a worsening condition. Of course, Obamas plans were undermined by the Republicans refusal to compromise on further programs to accelerate economic growth. In fact, Republican intransigence was compounded by Obamas policy of supporting twenty-one different tax cuts. Many economists now believe that Obamas original stimulus plan was too little. And subsequent policies have made recovery even less likely. While concern for our childrens and grandchildrens facing a huge federal government debt is certainly a valid issue, we have to ask if a long-term depression during our generation would make it easier for our descendants to live happy and fruitful lives. Such a situation would likely occur if Republican policies were implemented after a GOP victory in 2012 Lawrence Montford KissimmeeOPINION OPINIONHere we go again. The Osceola County School Board is making surprising news this week after it attempted, but failed by a vote of 3-2, to fire Superintendent Terry Andrews. Now, Andrews has decided hes had enough and has pushed up his retirement from June 2013 to this October. Members of surrounding governmental bodies are likely shaking their heads on how dysfunctional this board can be at times. When is it going to be time for board members to realize that their infighting, filing lawsuits against each other and actions, such as on Tuesday, sheds such a negative light on the Osceola County School District? This time, School Board Chairwoman Barbara Horn made the motion to fire Andrews with Board Member Cindy Hartig seconding it for discussion. Hartig raised allegations against the superintendent, including his failure to maintain a professional atmosphere and misrepresentation of educational matters. Hartig said she took offense to Andrews stating at an April workshop that board members attend meetings without reading their agendas, lacking preparation on issues and failing to answer phone calls. At that special meeting, the superintendent read a Four Part School Board Challenge that essentially chastised the board for past counterproductive behavior. Andrews urged members to be at and to stay at all required meetings, to stop filing lawsuits against each other and to withdraw any lawsuits that are now in court. He also said members should stop talking about staff or fellow board members in public or private. Andrews also recommended the board be better prepared for meetings by reading and studying the agenda ahead of time, reading official emails, having a working phone with a message box that isnt full and asking him questions as needed. We believe Andrews was just asking for a little accountability, responsibility and productivity from School Board members. Does that warrant termination? We think not. Hartig also alleged Andrews breeched his contract for failing to terminate district employees for a variety of misconduct. Andrews called Hartigs allegations misrepresentations and said I can counter everything you say but I see no point in that. Because of Hartigs attack, Andrews said he is leaving early. What a shame. Andrews said that the district was in a good place and is moving forward. Looking at the recent FCAT scores, students did as well or better as in 2011. We believe Andrews is just trying to do whats best for the district. The board just forced out former superintendent Michael A. Grego in 2011. We believe setting up a revolving door for future superintendents will never attract the best possible candidates. Enough is enough. Theres a job to do and it involves students who deserve the best possible education. Finally, we wonder why Horn and Hartig were partners on this. We just hope it didnt involve violations of the Government in the Sunshine laws. Our View Submit letters to the editor to Osceola News-Gazette, 108 Church St., Kissimmee, FL 34741.

What a shameThere was always something hapless about Rodney King. He entered the nations consciousness and its conscience as a shambling drunk, an unemployed black construction worker who tried to outrun L.A. police rather than be arrested for drunk driving. The result was a police beating, surreptitiously captured on video, so profoundly vicious that the chief of police himself said it made him sick. In 1992, when a suburban jury, conspicuously bleached of black jurors, acquitted four white police officers of any crime, the City of Angels went to h--l, erupting in one of the worst urban riots in modern American history. Haplessness thereafter attached to King like a stink, as he bounced in and out of the news for domestic violence, drunken run-ins with police, driving into a tree under the influence of PCP. Even the manner of his death Sunday has about it that familiar odor of haplessness. King is believed to have accidentally drowned in his backyard pool. If true, isnt that about what you would have expected? Hapless could have been his middle name. But there was a moment, a signature moment, when Rodney Glen King was not hapless. You remember it, of course: Los Angeles is burning, the death toll is mounting, property damage is approaching $1 billion, the National Guard is trying to restore peace, the Red Cross is trying to help the stricken, and there comes King, shaken and uncertain, agony on his face and tears in his voice, pleading for peace and asking a question deceptive in its simplicity: Can we all get along? There was something almost unforgivably earnest about that question, something guileless, naked, even innocent. It came with no smirk of mocking subtext, no nudge of ironic knowing, no wink of post-modern detachment. It came from the heart, and some of us did not know how to process that. Perhaps thats why they transfigured it, removed it from the realm of serious things, made it a catchphrase, a cliche, the punch line to a joke no one had told. As a rule, history has shown flawless judgment in picking icons for AfricanAmericas struggle for human rights. It chose quiet, dignified Rosa Parks as the emblem of the fight against segregation. It chose handsome, prankish Emmett Till as the face of racial violence. So perhaps King seems an odd choice as the symbol of police brutality. But there is a reason Shakespeare put wisdom into the mouths of fools. The fool could get away with saying what others could not. No, King was not a fool. But he was a hapless guy, taken less than seriously -in part because he asked that question others would not. Yet that question, the one some of us tried to giggle into irrelevance, is the defining question of the American experiment. It follows us down 236 years of slavery, restrictive housing covenants, lynchings, suffragettes, Trails of Tears, English-Only debates, No Irish Need Apply signs, Stonewall uprisings, sexism, anti-Semitism, racism, riot, wreck and ruin. Can we all get along? King, a more reflective man than stereotype and his own behavior would lead you to believe -understood the unique symbolism his life and that question had conferred upon him. I sometimes feel like Im caught in a vise, he told the Los Angeles Times earlier this year. Some people feel like Im some kind of hero. Others hate me. They say I deserved it. Other people, I can hear them mocking me for when I called for an end to the destruction, like Im a fool for believing in peace. It is telling that more of us seemed to deride his question than sought to answer it. Perhaps they feared what the answer would be. Perhaps they found it easier just to laugh it down. But if the man who believes we must all get along is a fool, then you really have to wonder: What word is left for the man who does not?

gency management prompted the change. It was a r eorganizational change. Theyve been discussing it for a while, county spokesman Mark Pino said, adding the two positions ar e lateral. The county identified a need for more emergency management planning and action. Thats kind of what precipitated it. Collins said he was excited about the move, which connects him more with his passion for emergency management. By doing this, it gives me the time to move the program forward, which will only benefit the community and r esidents, Collins said. Its a r eally great move for the county and for me. Collins also will head the countys intergovernmental radio system, which is currently r eceiving extensive upgrades on all 20 channels, both emergency and non-emergency. The upgrade, which will take several years to complete, affects multiple county agencies including the Osceola County School District, T oho W ater Authority and all fire departments in the county, Collins said. Collins said he also was pleased with the countys appointment of Sorenson as the interim fire chief, due to his professionalism and more than 30 years experience in the field. It was part of the r eason we were able to do something like this, he said. (Sorenson) is a natural leader, fair and consistent. County Fire Rescue is in good hands. C ollins has been employed by Osceola County since August 2005. He became the Fire Rescue chief as of April 2008 and assumed the combined r ole as emergency management director and Fire Rescue chief in September on 2011. The move dropped Collins annual salary from $111,550 to $108,707, Pino said. Sorenson has been employed by Osceola County since June 2009. Prior to that, he was deputy chief for Orlando Fire Department. He served in Orlando from January 1981 until he made the move to Osceola County, Pino said. Sorensons promotion r ose his annual salary from $92,016.08 to $96,616.88, according to Pino. Two local cancer survivors from Central Florida are starting local support groups for those who have dealt or are presently dealing with cancer. Joan Tashbar and Rosa Holloway are inviting those who are cancer survivors, patients and caregivers to become a part of the support group. The group will be based throughout Central Florida to reach out to as many in need as they can. A support group can help one cope better and feel less isolated while making connections with others facing similar challenges, the press release added. There are many benefits of participating in support groups; feeling less lonely, gaining a sense of empowerment and control, improving coping skills, opportunities to talk openly and honestly about feelings, reduction in distress, depression or anxiety, receiving practical advice or information on treatment options and learning about new medical research. The founders, who are both lung cancer survivors, said they were interested in hearing from those wishing to participate in the support group about when and where to hold the gathering and how frequently. Interested parties should call Tashbar at 407-620-6630 or Holloway at 407-873-2070 for more information. The Kissimmee Fire Department will conduct a boot drive for the Muscular Dystrophy Association today and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. at the intersections of: Hoagland Boulevard and U.S Highway 192, Michigan Avenue and Vine Street, John Young Parkway and either Emmett Street or Vine Street and Osceola Parkway and U.S. Highway 441 (Orange Blossom Trail). The drive is to help with continued support of the Muscular Dystrophy A ssociations research and service programs, until a cure is found according to an agency press release. Funds raised by Kissimmee firefighters will help local individuals and families affected by muscular dys trophy and related diseases. The fundraiser helps to support the MDAs worldwide research program and national network of more than 200 clinics, including UF Shands and, coming in October, Nemours Orlando. Donations also help to send some 30 Central Florida children with neuromuscular diseases to the barrier-free MDA summer camp at Camp Thunderbird in Apopka.

Page A6, 6 SPORTSSPORTS Follow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/OsceolaSports What about Dwight? Sports briefsCampers hope Magic star stays By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Like presidential c ampaigns, the Dwight Howard saga never seems to end. For the second summer in a row, Orlando Magic basketball talk begins and ends with speculation about the all-star centers intentions. Will he extend his contract with the Magic, or will he be traded so the team can salvage some value for him rather than lose him to free agency next year? Howard, who has one year remaining on his contract, has been in Los Angeles for the past two months after undergoing minor back surgery. He canceled his youth basketball camp last week but rescheduled for next month. He has given little indication that he wishes to remain a member of the local NBA franchise. A few of the participants at the Top Gun basketball shooting camp at St. Cloud High voiced their opinions Tuesday. The consensus among them is that Howard is an extremely popular player who likely is headed out of town. They should trade him for two guards, Colton Viscomi, a Harmony High player, said. Like, you know he wants to leave. I think if the other teams were offered a good deal, theyd step up. Viscomi described himself as an Oklahoma City fan. But, I liked the Thunder before they reached the (NBA) Finals, he said. Logan Warren, from City of Life Academy, said he would rather see Howard stay in Orlando. He may stay. Hes a good player, youd like to see him stay, Warren said. Camper Gustavo Delamaza said it really doesnt matter what Howard does because things dont look good for the Magic. Basically, (the Magic) are done whether he stays or goes, Delamaza said. Delamaza, a Los Angeles Lakers fan, said the Magic dont have enough talent surrounding Howard to go far in the playoffs, and if they trade him, they cant get equal value. Spencer Gomez of St. Cloud would like the NBA center to stay. I like him, but I might be a little bit mad at him if he left, Gomez said. Anthony Pinkerton is a devoted Magic fan who would miss Howard if he departs. It probably would make me kind of mad, he said. At the same time, Pinkerton understands that pro basketball is a business. If he w ent to another team, Id be glad for him if he went to one of the top teams, he said. Nohemy Aguila, a Lady Bulldogs basketball player who graduated in May, bears no ill will toward Howard no matter what his decision. Im fine with it. As a player, he has to go where he thinks he can reach the championship game, she said. I would love him to stay, but in the end, he has to do what is better for him. The Magic should build up their team to help him. He cant do it alone. One of the younger campers, Amanda Torres, simply wants her favorite player to stay in Orlando. Everyone likes him. They should like him, because hes the best player! the Magic fan said. About 70 students were at the Top Gun camp Tuesday. Founder Tim McMullen, a St. Cloud High coach for 28 years, said the campers were doing a good job of picking up fundamental skills that can help them as they move along the youth basketball ladder. Its fun, and the kids need this kind of instruction from the good young coaches we have here, McMullen said. Osceola Countys all-time leading high school male (Tim Gatz) and female (Dana Smith) scorers participated at the Top Gun camp. Most of the others high on the scoring list also participated at the camp. St. Cloud girls basketball coach Chad Ansbaugh has cohosted the camp for the past several years. Its getting near time for me to turn this over to the younger coaches, but I have a great time working with these kids, McMullen said. Above, former St. Cloud basketball coach Tim McMullen works with Celebration K-8 student Ben Wheeler at the Top Gun Shooting basketball camp Tuesday at the St. Cloud High gym. Above left, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard remains a popular figure to many of the Top Gun campers, like Nohemy Aguila (left), a Lady Bulldogs guard who graduated in May.News-Gazette Photos/Andrew Sullivan Magic center still a popular figure at the Top Gun hoops camp Photo/Orlando Magic Former Harmony player takes Life Academy hoops position By Rick Pedone Sports Editor For the past several seasons Mike Botkin has coached Division I basketball talents like Osceola Highs Brenton Williams (South Carolina) and Poincianas Stefan M oody (Florida Atlantic). Now, as Life Christian Academys new head basketball coach, Botkin will make the adjustment from coaching outstanding athletes to teaching relative novices how to be competitive. Weve got two juniors, and everyone else is sophomores and younger, Botkin, a 2008 Harmony High graduate, said. Botkin, 22, accepted the Lions job, his first as a head coach, two weeks ago. Weve got some size, which is good for a private school this size, but weve got very few players with experience, he said. Weve got a lot of work to do. Outgoing Coach and Athletic Director Kevin Hosford had an excellent 2011-12 campaign, winning the 2A-6 district championship and posting a 17-10 record. But two seniors graduated and three more starters transferred, leaving Botkin with a huge void to fill. Losing four starters at a school this size is huge, he said. Its not like coaching at a Class 7A high school, where you can replace talent with someone roughly equal in talent. There are only about 30 high school age males at Life Academy, making the talent pool small. But, all things are relative, he added. I dont know yet how good the schools are that well be playing. Maybe at this level, well be fine, he said. Botkin is easing up on the schedule outside of the district, though, just to be sure. Botkin has advanced through the coaching ranks quickly, thanks to former Osceola High Coach Larry Brown. Brown added Botkin to his OHS staff as an assistant after he graduated from Harmony and he helped the Kowboys reach the regional playoffs as a district runner up. After Brown left OHS to return to Texas, where Brown is a coaching legend in both the high school and college ranks, he invited Botkin to join him. Botkin worked three seasons under Brown at the college level. Botkin already has extensive international coaching experience when he assisted Brown with the Bahamas national team. Botkin returned to Osceola County last year and joined Poinciana Coach Oliver Simmons staff as a volunteer assistant. Like at OHS, Botkin helped the Eagles reach the playoffs where Poinciana posted a school-record 20-10 record and claimed the district championship. Ive been in the playoffs everywhere I coached, he said. It will be more difficult here, but the goal is the same. Were going to work hard, get better, and try to win the district championship. Botkin said that being around experienced coaches such as Brown, Simmons and Oviedo Coach Ed Kershner, Browns good friend, has given him an understanding of what is required to be successful in the difficult business of prep coaching. Coach Brown had the foresight to hire me at (age) 18 and give me so much responsibility. Ill always owe him, Botkin said. Oliver made me realize there is more to basketball than Xs and Os. Botkin will pursue a bachelors degree while he coaches at Life Academy. Hosford plans to get a masters degree at Stetson. He resigned as the schools athletic director last week. Im ready to head in a different direction, he said. Mike Botkin Jacque will returnJacque Mitchell was unable to write his fishing column for this week, but he will return soon.Palmi volleyball campOsceola High Volleyball Coach Carrie Palmi is hosting a volleyball camp Tuesday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the OHS gym.

By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor It is a view just about every American in the 1960s got to know very well from their TV screen: The Kennedy Space Center Launch Control Center. More than 150 launches, from the first moon mission of the Apollo program to those of the space shuttle, the Launch Control Center (LCC) was that all-important place where the launch control director would ultimately decide whether a launch was a go or no go. Now, for the first time in more than 30 years, NASA is allowing Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex guests access to the center, where NASA directors and engineers supervised all 152 of those launches. The new tour is the second special tour scheduled for the year as the space center celebrates its 50th anniversary. NASA recently began conducting tours of the Vehicle Assembly Building (VAB), that famous 525-foot tall icon where the Apollo V rockets and the space shuttles were assembled for launch. The tour actually takes you inside Firing Room 4, one of the LCCs four firing rooms and the one which all 21 space shuttles since 2006 were controlled. You can feel the history inside the place, from the large countdown clock that dominates the front of the room, to the bubble room where the Space Center management team got a birdseye view of all of the engineer stations down below. The room also boasts large windows for a direct view of Launch Complex 39, where all of the shuttles and Saturn V rockets were launched. This is another very rare o pportunity that NASA has worked with us to provide access to the Launch Control Center, said Bill Moore, chief operating officer of the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. It might be another 30 years before guests will receive a behind-the-scenes opportunity like this again. In addition to the control center, the tour includes the center lobby, which features 153 wall plaques, one for every mission guided tour there since the first, the unmanned Apollo 4 in 1967. The LCC is also listed on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places and won an architectural award for industrial design from the American Institute of Architecture in 1965. Space for the tours is very limited at this point. Additional New tours at KSC include a historic look at Mission ControlAbraham Lincoln as a vampire killer extraordinaire? Whats next, Betsy Ross, seamstress to Superman and Spider-Man? Or the untold story about Richard Nixon and his secret Broadway musical years? Forget all you ever learned about Lincoln the truth has finally been told. And it wasnt so much that the Civil War was eventually fought to free the slaves it was to keep those vampires south of the M ason-Dixon line. If you think all you ever needed to know about vampires was covered in True Blood and those usually awful Twilight soggas (yes, as in soggy), think again. Honest Abe wasnt so honest after all. Amazingly, while Lincoln as an axe-wielding (it also doubles as a gun) vampire killer, is never believable, it does make for an interesting retelling of history. This is a story of Lincoln that could have easily been reinterpreted by Quentin Tarantino judging by the body count. Director Timur Bekmambetov (Wanted) takes all of this vampire stuff quite seriously. It is hard to believe that a movie that has Lincoln doing all the right Jackie Chan moves (only with more severed heads) is never played for laughs. Benjamin Walker plays the 16th president, both as a young man, and with lots of applied make-up (think Disneys Hall of Presidents) the Civil War years. Lincoln is also seen as a boy and he witnesses the death of his mother by 50 CENTS Here s a hint: Lincoln didnt get his stakes from OutbackFollow us on Twitter www.twitter.com/icmovies Peter CovinoFilm Critic Section B June 23, 2012 Check out aroundosceola.com Honest Abe had a lot of secrets, apparentlyLIFESTYLESLIFESTYLES ON GOLDEN PONDORLANDO The popular play about an elderly couple in New England is at the POINTE performing Arts Center through Sunday.

Open doors.The people of The United Methodist Church Traditional Service 10:30am Contemporary 9:00am Hispana-Brasilera Primera Iglesia Metodista Unida 10:30am By Peter Covino Lifestyles Editor Jaws made the beach scary for many movie-goers in the 1970s. Deliverance had a similar effect with the woods and banjos but for entirely different reasons. This grand outdoor classic celebrates its 40th anniversary this year and Warner Bros. is recognizing the milestone with a new Blu-ray book (release date Tuesday). While the images are sharp, as you would expect from a digitally restored film, Deliverance is not a wow Blu-ray experience. Director John Boorman was not making a beautiful nature film about the outdoors. It is, in part, a horror film, so the muted colors are intentional. Even after 40 years, Deliverance has no equal in man versus the outdoors films. It is psychological drama and like Apocalypse Now it is a journey into a heart of darkness. It boasts some fine performances by Jon Voight, Ned Beatty, Burt Reynolds and Ronny Cox (the films center). Dont forget to look out for Deliverance author James Dickey who has a short (but well-performed role) as the county sheriff, investigating a canoeing accident which resulted in the death of one the four friends out on a weekend adventure. He also has some serious questions about the disappearance of a local man who was out and about around the river during the weekend. Deliverance was nominated for three Academy Awards including Best Picture, Directing and Film Editing. The Blu-ray book includes 42-pages of photos and commentary and the DVD features a new feature from the cast looking back on the film as well as commentary by Boorman, and several other featurettes. Almost Kings There is no river to navigate in Almost Kings, but there is still a troubled journey for teens growing up in a small California town in this independent film (Breaking Glass Pictures). Take away the Happy Days soundtrack from American Graffiti and add a lot more foreboding and you have an idea of what this film is all about. Freshman Ted (Lorenzo James Henrie) idolizes his older brother Truck (Alex Frost). Truck has watched after him and offers some protection from their abusive, paralyzed father (Billy Campbell). Ted is sort of the adopted mascot of The Kings, the group that Truck and his friends hang out with. Even though he is younger, he joins in, including their secret contest to see who can have sex with the most freshman girls at their high school. It was all fun and games at first, but it doesnt take too long before Ted has some serious doubts about his new gang and even his brother. The Secret World of Arrietty Thank you, thank you, Japanese animators. It is so easy to grow tired of all the CGI images churned out by all the American film studios. No matter how realistic Toy Story 3 and the rest are, The Secret World of Arrietty is what animation is supposed to look like. This Disney release (from Japans Studio Ghibli of Spirited Away fame) does nothing but impress from opening to closing frame (including the end credits). This is The Borrowers, or a continuation of that story, about little people who secretly dwell in basements and attics and borrow what they need from the their full-sized human counterparts. Arrietty is the only child of a Borrowers couple and she is full of life and adventurous, but has been taught by her parents to always stay out of sight or it will mean doom for them. But she is found out by a sickly teenaged boy visiting their home and their budding friendship threatens the existence of the little people. It is a nice story, (translated in English from Japanese) but it is the animation that makes The Secret World of Arrietty compulsive (especially in Blu-ray) viewing. The 2-Disc Blu-ray combo pack includes many bonuses such as a storyboard version of the film and the original Japanese trailers and TV commercials. Additional features include music videos for the songs Summertime performed by Disney Channel star Bridgit Mendler, who is the speaking voice of Arrietty; and the movies theme song Arriettys Song performed by French singer/MovieContinued from page B-1 Putting on your DVDs a vampire. And thus, a vampire killer is born. He is ably helped by his two trusted friends, Henry Sturgess (Dominic Cooper), a good vampire who has been around for a long time, and Will (Anthony Mackle) a freed slave who also joins in the kill a vampire crusade. Other important figures in Lincolns life (both real and in the vampire version) are his wife Mary Todd (she eventually finds about her husbands hate those vampires secret), and his famous political rival, Stephen Douglas. Marton Csokas plays the bad vampire Jack Barts, and Rufus Sewell, plays a very important vampire, who is leading what amounts to a vampire revolution. He is even directly helping Confederate President Jefferson Davis. Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter isnt perfect. It isnt particularly scary and the story isnt wholly absorbing either. But it is entertaining stuff, and there a few scenes (a train crossing a burning trestle) and Lincoln battling vampires in a horse stampede that make this a worthwhile show. You can see this as a 3D option, and there are some good effects, but like most films, 3D is not a necessity Meet the Filmmaker You might want to mark your calendar for Tuesday, July 17 for the next Meet the Filmmaker event at the Enzian theater. The July event features cimema and blues musician Rita Chiarelli and Music from the Big House. Chiarelli is nown as Canadas Queen of the Blues. In the film, Chiarelli takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues, Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary a.k.a. Angola Prison what used to be the bloodiest prison in America. Her trip turns into a historic jailhouse performance playing with inmates serving life sentences for murder, rape, and armed robbery. Their shared bond of music and Chiarellis ebullient personality draw striking revelations from the inmates. Through voices of hope and love of music, the convicts radiate humanity and redemption on their quest for forgiveness. The event includes a question and answer session and concert by the musician.
