By Ken Jackson Staff W riter Osceola Countys scores logged by students in grades 4, 8 and 10 on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test were released last week, and across the board, the news was positive. County students scored equal to or above state average in most cases, and also posted improvements over last year. District Superintendent Melba Luciano commended the work of teachers, students and parents. I am extremely proud of the impressive gains and a ccomplishments in writin g that our Osceola students and teachers continue to make, she said. As a district, we will continue to build on our success with a clear focus and direction on teaching effective writing skills to our students. In fourth grade, 40 percent of students scored a 4.0 or higher, which is 8 percent better than last years mark and also tops the state average (37). Fifty-eight percent scored 3.5 or higher, a fivepoint increase from 2012 and exceeds the state average (57). The mean score (average) of 3.5 beat the state average of 3.4.

By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff W riter With the economic burden of dual enrollment now falling on Florida school districts, Osceola County will have to pay $1.4 million to continue the program. The cost includes the price of college credits at Valencia Community College, as stated by the bill signed by Gov. Rick Scott last week. Its a huge increase compared to what the district paid before, which was program instructors salaries both on and off Valencia campus. But, it is the sudden change of paying for college credits that came as a surprise to the district, rather than the cost. Were very adaptive. We can flow with the changes that come down from the state. We just have to confront it just a little bit differently. This is just a different way of accounting for that and were just passing it on to Valencia now, said Todd Seis, School District chief financial officer. The funding that the district receives through the Florida Education Finance Program for Dual Enrollment will pay the Valencia college credit cost $99.06 per credit. The change in cost has not altered the Dual Enrollment program, nor limits the number of high school students able to take the classes, according to Pam Tapley, School District assistant superintendent for secondary curriculum and instruction. Dual Enrollment is a program through the Osceola School District. Qualified high school juniors and seniors can take community college classes at Valencia or their high school campus, if offered, and earn college as well as high school credits for them. Part of the savings to the district is through their partnership with Valencia Community College. The funds from the state will cover the costs of credit hours for Valencia, but wont be able to completely cover credit costs at other local colleges or universities. The community college, through the Dual Enrollment program, already teaches courses at f our Osceol a County high schools, and projects to be able to teach at even more high schools. In the past, we had to often say, hey, sorry, we cant afford this salary for an instructor to go out into the high schools and teach this class. Now, with the School District paying that cost, well be equal partners in that conversation about whats best for our students. It wont be can we afford it, or can we not, said Kath-Dual enrollment to cost School District more than $1 million See District, page A-5 By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff W riter Brianne Stefek has two goals for downtown Kissimmee: keep city events going strong and bring in new ones to support the small businesses on Broadway.

Page A2, A St. Cloud man was arrested and charged with sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation on Tuesday, after the victim reported that the suspect would touch her inappropriately when her mother was at work. Osceola County Sheriffs Office detectives arrested 59-year-old Joseph Arnold Hartman. The investigation began on Saturday, when deputies took a report of possible sexual battery. Initially, the 7-year old victim told deputies Hartman, a family member, locked her in the garage after her mother would go to work. She also told deputies within the last year, on several occasions when her mother was at work, Hartman would inappropriately touch her. She also recalled two incidences of sexual battery, Sheriffs Office reports stated. Detectives brought Hartman in for questioning and he initially denied the allegations of sexual battery and molestation. He did tell detectives while he was watching the victim, he would leave her in the garage with the door slightly closed when she was not behaving. Eventually, he told detectives he might have touched her inappropriately on several occasions. Based on the information, Hartman was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail. He was charged with three counts of sexual battery and two counts of lewd and lascivious molestation.Three arrested in kidnappingOsceola County Sheriffs deputies arrested three individuals in connection with a kidnapping. Carl Pate, of Intercession City, and Rami Maswade h and Bridgett Schoen, of Kissimmee, were arrested Sunday and charged with kidnapping an adult for ransom/hostage. Pate also was charged with two counts of aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer and one count of aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer. According to the Sheriffs Office report, the three suspects kidnapped the victim Sunday. Authorities received a call around 1:15 a.m. from a complainant who knew the victim. Throughout the morning, the complainant received more calls from the suspects, demanding the complainant to pay $2,000 for the victims safe return. Around 4:15 a.m., the suspects told the complainant that the victim would be dropped off at Maswadehs residence on Dogwood Court in Kissimmee. Police established a perimeter around the neighborhood and located the suspects Nissan truck in the area. They followed the truck to the Woodcrest subdivision, where the suspects tried to flee the scene by hitting police vehicles while driving away. The three suspects were caught leaving their damaged vehicle near Mill Slough Road and Michigan Avenue, arrested and taken to Osceola County Jail. Purse snatcher nabbed in BVLA Kissimmee man was arrested in connection with a robbery after being caught by authorities in another incident on Buenaventura Boulevard.

Thursday, May 30, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A3 By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff W riter Like many Osceola County high school graduates this spring, Robin Schiro has a plan: to attend UCF this fall, major in computer science, and join the University of Central Florida Programming Team. But, unlike most of his peers, he will get to walk across the stage as one of the 2,500 Top National Merit Scholars across the country, and the only scholar in Osceola County. The intellect that he possesses is just phenomenal. He has a mind that just all of his teachers are impressed with, said Larry Meadows, principal of Gateway High School. The Gateway and IB graduate r eceived the award with surprise, expecting his application to make the finals in National Merit Scholars at best. He credited the award to his SAT score, which also is the highest in the county, and his essay, titled The Dark Side of Parenting. In it, he discusses the relationship between his father and older brother, observing that discipline did help his brother focus in high school but now separates them today. They went back and forth a lot when my older brother was in high school. Theres kind of a rift between my brother and my dad, said Schiro. For him, academics have always been a focus in his life. In sixth grade, he started taking SAT practice tests and aspired to be valedictorian of his graduating class by seventh. He now shares that title with Kevin Baquero, a fellow IB program student.

Page A4, The importance of early childhood educationTo the Editor It is positively important to start different teac hing strategies from the moment a child is born. Many say that a childs experiences before 48 months can help a great deal with their development. This time frame in a childs life is what they call windows of opportunity when most of their learning creates the wiring in their brain to develop. This wiring c alled synapse is essential in a childs life in order to live a full and productive life. Daycare can be a healthy option in early education. When choosing a daycare keep in mind that it should be up to code and certified by the state. And more importantly that youre leaving your babies in great hands. However you choose, make their learning experience a fun experience for the entire family. Iris J. Santiago Kissimmee Have you heard of Oxytots? They are the crack babies of today. Headlines scream of the damage pregnant women with addictions to pain pills are causing. Like this last year from USA Today, Number of painkiller-addicted newborns triples in 10 years; and from the Wall Street Journal, Pain Pills Littlest Victims. Fox News used the moniker Oxytots for added color. But ginning up hysteria distorts the real science behind this public health issue, which is far more textured. Pain pill like Oxycontin and Vicodin are often legally prescribed and e ssential for women who suffer from chronic or acute pain. Women cannot simply stop taking them while pregnant. Moreover, babies are not born addicted to drugs, though they may be exposed before birth. Words like this matter because when pregnant women are demonized in the media as having victimized their babies by addicting them, it changes the conversation. People who are labeled drug pushers and perpetrators get punished, not treated and helped. I saw this firsthand as executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union of Florida. In 1989 Jennifer Johnson of Altamonte Springs, Fla. became the first woman in the country to be convicted of delivering drugs to her newborns through the umbilical cord. Prosecutors used a statute intended for street-level drug dealers to charge Johnson who had cocaine in her system when she gave birth to two of her children. Her conviction was eventually overturned, but it illustrates how far prosecutors will go to turn a woman with a drug problem into a child-abuser. This harsh approach was justified because crack babies were predicted in one breathless media report after the next to be severely damaged over their entire lives. Except that didnt happen. In 2009, the New York Times revisited the issue with a piece titled The Epidemic That Wasnt. Researchers who systematically followed children exposed to cocaine in the womb found no major long-term effects on brain development or behavior. They did see some small impacts, meaning that it isnt a good thing for a fetus to be cocaine-exposed. But the effects were less severe than those from alcohol and are comparable to tobacco use, both legal products. So, too, with prescription drug exposure in the womb. The research has found no long-term negative developmental outcomes. Babies, though, can sometimes develop a condition known as Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS), a diagnosable and readily treatable condition. Recently a group of more than 50 leading science and medical experts issued a plea to the media to stop inaccurate and alarmist reporting on the subject because it is harming the lives and health of women and their children. Pregnant women trying to do the right thing and control their addiction with methadone or the newer buprenorphine maintenance treatment have been treated as child abusers by judges and child welfare workers, according to the experience of Dr. Robert Newman, director of the Baron Edmond de Rothschild Chemical Dependency Institute of Beth Israel Medical Center in New York and other experts who signed the open letter. The treatment is medically beneficial and recommended for pregnant women. These nuances are lost because people who should know better continue sensationalizing misinformation. Consider the bad judgment exhibited by Floridas Surgeon General and Secretary of Health Dr. John Armstrong who put out a press release last month saying, One baby born addicted to drugs is too many. Compare that to the report Armstrong issued in February as Vice Chairman of Floridas Statewide Task Force on Prescription Drug Abuse & Newborns which responsibly warns that, to dispel harmful myths, a baby should never be referred to as drugaddicted. By scare-mongering in a press release Armstrong is willing to let every pregnant woman who tests positive for pain medicine even if it is prescribed be vilified as a child abuser. Public officials and the media need to get their facts and tone right. Labels like Oxytots and littlest victims are way wide of the mark. Robyn Blumner is a columnist from the Tampa Bay Times.

Thursday, May 30, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A5 aspires to broaden his focus to more than just academics. When applying in the fall, he suspected that it was his lack of extra-curricular activities that didnt get him into his top schools, such as Harvard and MIT. Of the bigger universities that did accept him, none of them offered the financial aid to help him afford it. I originally applied to UCF because I like UCF overall, he said. Ive been to their campus many times for their academic competitions in middle school and robotics competitions in high school. I was really familiar with the campus, I liked how it looked and Ive met some of the professors and been in the classes. UCF became his choice when he discovered a scholarship that they offered to Top National Merit Scholars, which would cover n early the entire cost. He plans to dive more into computer programming while hes there. With AP computer science clinching his passion in high school, he hopes that following it will lead to a career in programming after college. leen Plinske, provost president of Valencias Osceola campus. Before, the community college lost $4 million in college tuition costs from the Dual Enrollment program between both Orange and Osceola County. With the cost now going to the district, it plans on not only bringing more courses to Osceola County high schools, but also target those courses to schools w ith a low-college attendance rate. Plinske also said she hoped to work with the district in order to give high school students in the Dual Enrollment program a more immersive college experience, such as enrolling students in courses with more college than high school classmates. More over, she wants to encourage more students to take classes on the Valencia campus. The cost breakdown as well as future plans for the program are still in its initial stages, and will be finalized in the annual Dual Enrollment meeting on a later date. 54 and 35 percent state averages.

Thursday, May 30, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A7 By Ken Jackson Staff W riter Osceola County staff is looking for ways to replace some county vehicles while taking a bite out of the cost of gas by converting them to run on cheaper, cleaner compressed natural gas instead of traditional diesel fuel. Its a deal that will take further study and work on points of the business deal, but County Manager Don Fisher said that a plan to use natural gas could make it easier for the county to get new vehicles. Its been five years since any new vehicles have been replaced. We got into next years budget without replacing any of that equipment. These proposals were coming up with could accomplish that, he said. Last week, the Board of County Commissioners chose one of two qualified companies, NoPetro out of Coral Gables, to begin working on contract points that will include the duration of the deal and the minimum amount of natural gas the county would have to buy. Frank Raymond, the countys Public Works director, said with the commissions approval to continue discussions with NoPetro, staff can weigh the savings against the initial expenditure of the move to natural gas On a theoretical basis, CNG (compressed natural gas) is a more efficient fuel, he said. Were attempting to see what wed spend to get into it. Two natural gas stations in the Fort Lauderdale area were selling for $2.14 per gallon late last week, while traditional gas sold for about $3.50 per gallon. CNG is a fossil fuel substitute for gasoline and diesel fuel, producing far fewer greenhouse gases or carbon into the atmosphere. It is also much safer than other fuels in the event of a spill (natural gas is ligh ter than air, and disperses quickly when released). CNG can also be mixed with other elements to produce a biogas, another cheaper and greener fuel alternative. Traditional internal combustion engines can be converted into a bi-fuel (gas and CNG) vehicle, however a drawback is that storage and vehicle tanks have to be bigger and heavier because of the high pressure at which CNG is kept at. Despite that, according to a marke t study, the number of vehicles in the world using CNG has grown by as much as 30 percent annually in recent years. Fisher said his initial negotiations with NoPetro, which already has an office in Kissimmee and could bring as many as 35 new jobs to Osceola County, included that the company wouldnt ask for any startup costs from the county. NoPetro asked for an annual commitment to use 88,000 gas gallon equivalents, or what Fisher said at the commission meeting was about the annual consumption of 25 trash trucks. The county also would pay NoPetro a compression fee per gallon. While commissioners gave their approval for negotiations to continue, their overriding sentiment was to do so carefully and make sure the venture is financially worthwhile. Wed love to get CNG in here, but if you arent going to save 100, 200, 300 thousand a year, why go through this, Commission Chairman Frank Attkisson said. There should be a number, a delta were trying to cross. If we create these jobs, then we cant afford to buy the gas from them, Im not sure if it makes sense. Commissioner Brandon Arrington said he wanted to see more of the details before the county makes any big moves. Its a wonderful idea with ozone and air quality issues, but is this cost feasible? he asked. such a great impact, positively, with the community. For the businesses and also for the residents that are here too, said Stefek. Stefek was raised in Kissimmee, graduating from Osceola High School in 2002 and t hen from th e University of Central Florida. Growing up, she has always volunteered and planned for different organizations, from local gymnastics meets as a kid to different community and philanthropic organizations in high school and college. She sees Kissimmee as a much different place than when she was growing up, with downtown being less about business and more about community events. While enjoying the numerous events the city now has to offer, Stefek works to bring a balance of business and pleasure. Just to get an idea of what theyre looking for, and their vision of downtown Kissimmee going forward, said Stefek about working with local businesses. That is part of our motto. Were preserving the past, but were also looking towards the future. So, I personally want to get a feel of what theyre looking for and what we can do to assist them meet those goals and visions as well. Even though events usually happen between October and April, Stefek already is partnering with Camp Discovery, a summer camp for children from kindergarten to the fifth grade. Kissimmee Main Street aims to add to the camps arts and crafts by taking campers on the downtown sculpture walking tour, and then encouraging them to sculpt their own creations. The partnership is official, although the event plans have not been finalized. Stefek said she planned for this to be the first of many new events to come.

Thursday, May 30, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A9 By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Although there was no winner on the scoreboard, the Osceola Kowboys had reason to feel good about themselves after tying Lake Gibson, 14-14, Friday in the spring game at Kowboys field. Osceola quarterback Daequan Harrison ran 80 yards for one touchdown and passed five yards to Santiago Hoffman for another, and his run for two points tied the score with 8:09 to play. Harrison, who carried 21 times for 155 yards and was 4-of-8 for 19 yards and one touchdown passing, led an OHS attack that amassed 319 yards, 300 of those on the ground. The Kowboys played mistake-free football, except for one play that cost them a win. On third-and-goal at the Braves 1 with just over a minute to play, Harrison was stuffed on a QB sneak. He bounced back and tried to lateral to keep the play alive, but the ball was batted into the end zone where Lake Gibson recovered for a touchback. The teams agreed not to play overtime. Osceola Coach Doug Nichols applauded Harrisons effort in trying to keep the lateral play alive. Why would I criticize a player for giving an extra effort? Nichols said. He ran a play the wrong way and picked up 30 yards earlier in that drive. Thats when you probably should criticize him, but hes a player that makes things happen. You take the good with the bad. The Kowboys, who played without several injured players, including running back Scooter Fagan who is being counted on to provide big plays next season, displayed impressive depth in the backfield. Rising sophomore Laderrien Wilson (11-61) looked like a between-the-tackles m onster, and Akiel Hamilton and Edtwain Black also kept drives alive with elusive moves. I think we saw a few guys who showed that they are capable of helping us in the backfield, Nichols said. Edtwain Black played well. We had a few breakdowns here and there, but for the most part we werent bad. The Kowboys retooled secondary limited Lake Gibsons senior quarterback, Trey Congdon, to 119 yards (9-for-17). Last year, Congdon torched OHS for 300 yards and four touchdowns. The secondary did a good job on their quarterback, Nichols said. Senior Juaquan Jenkins picked off Congdon in the third quarter and teammate Dalton Banton made a heads up recovery after Jenkins fumbled the return. Safety Dominc Lees crunching hit on Brave s receiver Giani Everett caused a fumble that was recovered by linebacker Mikeice Adams and returned to the Braves 37 with 2:50 to play, giving OHS an opportunity to win. Defensively we did some good things. We definitely need to get better, both on offense and on defense, but I think were going to be OK, Nichols said. Both teams were sluggish in the first half after the game was delayed 45 minutes by lightning. OHS dominated the first quarter, reeling off 22 plays to Lake Gibsons eight, but one drive ended at midfield with a punt, and later Nichols elected to gamble on fourth-and-14 from the Lake Gibson 20. A pass play lost 6 yards. Thats what happens in spring games. During the season, I probably dont try for the first down there, Nichols Kowboys offense runs for 300 yards; defense hampers Braves QB Follow us on Twitte r Osceola-Lake Gibson ends in tie Spring football Gateway wins twice at jamboree Osceola safety Stephon Brown (17), lineman Jaqwaun Dockery (52) and linebacker Mikeice Adams (bottom) smother Lake Gibson running back Thomas Boles during the first half of the spring game Friday at Kowboys field.

The Eagles will make their debut under Coach Jeff Mathis, who took over the program in January. Mathis said he is looking forward to seeing how the enthusiasm his players have displayed in practice translates on the field. We still have quite a few wrinkles to work out, but the kids have worked tremendously hard this spring, he said. At this point, Mathis wont have the luxury of depth on his team. The numbers are so-so, about 35 to 40 kids, but the groups overall enthusiasm has been good, he said. The Eagles have one of the countys most explosive players on the roster in senior Josh Lopez, a multi-threat player. He is legit, one of the most athletically-gifted kids I have seen, Mathis said. Harmony Coach Jerrad Butler said his team is ready to get on the field after spending the past month practicing. Our kids have worked very hard this spring, Butler said. We look forward to getting on the field and finally hitting someone else.

Harrison rushed for 155 yards and a touchdown for the Kowboys.News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanSee Kowboys, page A-11 By J. Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette Unveiling a new offense and a solid defense, Gateway wrapped up its spring football practice Friday in fine fashion by shutting out both Eustis, 9-0, and host Cypress Creek, 6-0. The Panthers played one half against each team. Coming off one of its best seasons in school history (7-4), Gateway was looking to build momentum into the fall with a brand new offense. With the graduation of star running back Zach Smith, Panthers head coach Marlin Roberts scrapped his pro-look offense from last season and switched to the Flexbone Option, an offense similar to the one run by Coach Paul Johnsons teams at Georgia Tech and Navy. Roberts biggest concern was finding an athlete with the necessary skills to run the complicated offense, which gives the quarterback numerous split-second read options. Against Eustis, quarterbacks Calvin Logan and Henry Miller each ran two series. Miller, who started at wide receiver last season, was on the field for the first series that resulted in a two-play, 70-yard touchdown drive. Isaiah Wharton took a pitch, broke two tackles down the far sideline, and raced 60 yards on the first play of the game. On the next play, Miller faked to the fullback and busted up the middle for a 10-yard touchdown run to give the Panthers a 6-0 lead. We think Isaiah is going to be a very good running back for us, Roberts said. We really wanted to get him a lot more touches last year, but Zach Smith was so dominating it just didnt happen. After failing to move the ball on his first drive at quarterback, Logan directed a sixplay, 43-yard drive that ended on a 29-yard field goal by Brandon Lakins. Logan provided the big play on the drive, executing See Panthers, Page A-11
Page A10, Game Continued from page A-9 A-10 New Liberty football coach resigns The Horns will unveil a new defense under coordinator Brian Lambert, who moved from Osceola to Harmony this spring. I am really proud of this group. We have a strong core of kids that have all started on varsity since their sophomore year. Among those players, Butler said, are Tristan Reaves, Jeremiah Murray, Jacob Sammon, Jason Hundley, Zach Gerrard, A lex Britton and Colton Keene. Butler has been impressed with newcomers like receiversafety Daishaun Grimes, running back-cornerback Quoizell Brown and defensive lineman Jacob Laliberte. We kind of are who we are. We are where we expected ourselves to be. We are continuing to improve, though, Butler said. We just want to get the work in and see where it goes. This will be the only meeting this year between the teams. By Rick Pedone Sports Editor The search resumes for Liberty Highs football coach. Chargers Athletic Director Danielle LaPoint said that Danny Adams, hired in April, is not returning. Adams returned to Mississippi two weeks ago to take care of his elderly mother. Thats t he r eason he gave, LaPoint said. Im not happy about the way he handled it, but thats the situation. He resigned. Adams won state championships in Mississippi and Alabama at the small-school level and was brought in by LaPoint to take over a program that has been in flux since former coach David Benson was released in December. Benson is an assistant at Winter Park. LaPoint first hired Texas Coach Tim Holt in February, but Holt left within days of his hire to pursue a college job. LaPoint then targeted Adams. I wanted a coach who had a successful track record, a coach who has proved that he can turn a program around, she said. Adams did not answer his cell phone Tuesday. Predictably, the Chargers did not have much success against Ridge Community in the spring game, losing 38-7. LaPoint said she went to the teams practices last week to help because the football coaching staff is depleted. LaPoint said she was proud of the teams effort. The k ids played great I told them I was proud of them, LaPoint said. Our kids have worked so hard, and they deserve better than this. LaPoint expects to begin interviews soon. Unlike when Coach Holt left, I have a backup plan. I still have options 2, 3 and 4. Well have a coach here soon, she said.

Thursday, May 30, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A11 A-11 Kowboys Continued from page A-9said. The Braves went up on Thomas Boles 5-yard run in the second quarter, but OHS countered two plays later on Harrisons 80-yard dash. OHS went for two but failed, leaving the score 7-6. Hes got a year in the system now and that makes a world of difference, Nichols said. Were throwing a lot of new stuff at him, and hes pretty comfortable with it. The Braves led 14-6 on Chris Clarkes 27-yard in the fourth quarter before the Kowboys marched 70 yards to tie. Well get to work on our summer program, and then get back out here in a couple months get after it, Nichols said. Weve got quite a bit of work to do, but its fixable. a fake and busting loose for a 33-yard run. In the second half against Cypress Creek, Miller directed the only scoring drive as he led the Panthers on a sevenplay, 50-yard drive. Taking advantage of a big 15-yard run by Hunter Weber, Miller capped the drive with a 7-yard run. The Panthers could have made it 14-0 as Logan directed a long drive that covered 63 yards, but Gateway elected to run the clock out rather than calling timeout at the 2-yard-line. Weber was again solid in the drive, busting off a 53-yard run. Although both Miller and Logan had their moments, Roberts was reluctant to say either had an edge. Its going to be a continuing process, Roberts said. Miller is such a beast, he was able to play varsity last year as a freshman at wide receiver and hes going to get his opportunity to win the job, but so is Calvin Logan. In this offense, quarterback is a difficult position to master and we need to find out which one of these guys can execute it the best. One area that Roberts feels good about is his defense. Although a running clock was used in the jamboree, which limited each team to just a handful of possessions, Gateway was stout. The Panthers limited Eustis to minus 14 yards on 19 plays. Cypress Creek didnt fare a lot better, running 17 plays for 49 yards. Eustis managed just one first down and was tackled behind the line of scrimmage seven times. Linebacker John Paul Sanchez recorded a sack for a 15-yard loss while Mike Knight, Javonny Vega and Jaquan Owens also recorded tackles-for-losses. The only real scoring threat against the Panthers defense came against Cypress Creek, who drove from its 30 to the Gateway 7 only to see the drive end on a spectacular one-handed interception in the end zone by Wharton, who returned the ball 33 yards to the Gateway 30. We really only lost one starter on defense last year and we got a transfer in from North Florida who started at his old school on defense, Roberts added. Again, we are not going to read too much into how we played in one-half of spring game, but I like what we did on defense.

Patio season has arrived, and opportunities for outdoor social gatherings will abound in the coming months. Birthdays, graduations, showers, holidays and any other reasons to enjoy warm weather will call for unique outdoor party solutions that differ from indoor events. Here are a few ideas to make al fresco entertaining a snap. Fruity refreshment Enjoying seasonal fruits is one of summers most delicious pleasures, so incorporate fresh fruits into every aspect of your gathering. Go beyond the traditional fruit plates and garnishes, and sweeten regular water with fresh fruits for an invigorating beverage that is perfect for the patio. With a few whole fruits, ice and a high-performance blender like the Vitamix Professional Series 750, which features five pre-programmed settings including one for smoothies, a perfect summer concoction is seconds away. To make a Strawberry Agua Fresca, simply blend one cup of fresh strawberries, four cups of cubed, seeded watermelon, three fourths cup of lemon juice and two cups of ice to create a rejuvenating and healthy whole-food juice beverage that your guests are sure to enjoy. Get grilling Many people associate summer gatherings with grilling, but that doesnt mean your menu options need to be limited to the typical hamburgers and hot dogs found at most cookouts. Explore the hundreds of recipes for more health-conscious grilled cuisine, including salmon, shrimp, veggie burgers and chicken. Dont just reserve the grill for entrees, either. For an appetizer, try grilling slices of ciabatta or pita bread and topping with chopped tomatoes, basil and olive oil to create an easy bruschetta. Season and toss sliced, cooked potatoes on the grill to make your own steak fries, and use your Vitamix blender to create a number of dipping Section C REAL ESTATE IN OSCEOLA & SURROUNDING COUNTIES www.aroundosceola.com May 30, 2013 CLASSIFIEDS Pages C4 C6 LEGALS Page C7 ager fo r GFI Mo rt gage Bankers in New Yo rk.

When creating a backyard oasis to entertain family and friends this summer, its important that it be both inviting and able to withstand the wear and tear that goes handin-hand with warm weather fun. The outdoor living experts at Trex suggest the following tips: Maximize your space. Think about your deck in terms of different activities and dedicate separate areas for relaxing, grilling, dining and socializing. Consider creating a simple seating nook or an elegant outdoor bar. Structures like trellises, or even tall potted plants, can help establish settings for cozy conversations between guests while a pergola may offer much-needed relief from the summer sun. When you take a situation where you can entertain and move it outside, it immediately feels special, says Tyler Florence, culinary artist and one of the faces of Trexs new Engineered Artistry campaign. First and foremost, think about how your space interacts with the environment and use that as inspiration to create a deck that suits your personal interests and preferences. Create a full service outdoor kitchen. If youre planning to spend most weekends entertaining on your deck or patio, consider adding an exterior kitchen to your home. Incorporate elements like a grilling station, cooking range, sink, compact refrigerator or even a built-in rotisserie or pizza oven. Youll be able to prepare and serve food while outside conversing with guests rather than being stuck inside behind the stove. Just remember to build your outdoor kitchen in an area protected from the elements and make sure that its style whether modern stainless steel or rustic country complements the look of your homes exterior. Choose low-maintenance materials. Spills, splashes and other mishaps are inevitable when entertaining outdoors. If you want to spend more time enjoying rather than maintaining your deck, choose materials that need only a soap and water cleaning to retain their enduring good looks. Because I have so much going on, I try to keep things as simple as possible and avoid situations that require an enormous amount of upkeep, says Florence. If youre going to make the investment in a gorgeous outdoor living space, use decking and railing that will look amazing for decades to come. High-performance, wood-alternative decking like Trex resists fading, staining, scratching and mold growth thanks to an exclusive protective shell and high-traffic formulation even after several summers of dropping grill tools, spilling barbecue sauce and moving around heavy outdoor furniture. And while these materials offer the natural look of wood, you never need to worry about sanding, staining or painting. Design with distinction. Select a style and color scheme for your deck that best complements your homes exterior and reflects the natural environment. Todays wood-alternative decking offers high-definition wood grain patterns and rich, saturated colors inspired by the outdoors with a vibrancy Some ideas to make that next outdoor get together a successBrandpoint.Select a style and color scheme for your deck that best complements your homes exterior and reflects the natural environment.

Roasting vegetable skewers makes for a light but flavorful side, and you can even use rosemary sprigs as the skewers for extra zest. The grill is a versatile tool for summer entertaining, so use it to its full potential this season! Summer settings Outdoor dinner parties are typically less formal events, but some instances still call for place settings and arranged seating. To create a fun, light atmosphere that is still organized and thoughtful, use colorful place mats and napkins to offset a white or neutral tablecloth. Theres no need to break out the fine china, either. Opt for bamboo or melamine plates and bowls instead, which are available in a wide array of colors and designs. Bamboo serving utensils can create a beach-like feel, and reusable, recyclable plastic silverware is an affordable alternative to disposable cutlery. Have fun with table decorations and fill glass bowls and vases with flowers, colorful stones and floating candles for an attractive, summery table setting in no time. Add pretty citronella candles for decoration that will also keep your table bug-free. Night lights Many summer soirees carry on past sunset, so lighting your patio area is important. With hundreds of options available for any outdoor area and budget, you can create whatever atmosphere you prefer. Solar lamps are a smart, energyefficient way to light the walking and seating areas, while Chinese lanterns hanging in the trees create a fun, party feel. Garden lights lining the driveway and walkways will direct attendees to and from the gathering areas safely, and an enclosed bonfire pit or portable fireplace is a great way to gather people for post-dinner revelry. The right mood will encourage guests to stay past dark and allow everyone to enjoy a warm summer evening. Follow these few simple tips to create the perfect outdoor gathering, and youll be in the swing of summer entertaining in no time. See Backyard, page C-2
Page C2, Q: My next-door neighbor told me that the small dirt clumps and holes Im seeing around my backyard are probably moles or some other burrowing rodent. He says theyre not good for my garden. How can I stop them from making themselves at home? -Larry R., Indiana A: Youll probably get tons of advice on how to get rid of moles that dig into and ruin your lawn or garden, but not all of it is good. Moles can be difficult to chase off, and many remedies, like treating the lawn with lime, or using rodent bait to trap the moles, dont work, according to Purdue Universitys Plant & Pest Diagnostic Laboratory. A moles favorite food is earthworms. It will eat grubs, but not often, and it doesnt eat grain or seeds like mice or squirrels do. That means that baits, poisons and traps labeled for rodents wont work for moles. Baits that are labeled as being for rodents and moles also probably wont work well. Instead, look specifically for bait and/or traps for moles and no other pest. There are two effective ways to get rid of moles: poison them, using a bait that attracts them and is laced with a specific poison; or trap and remove them, using traps specifically created for moles and the tunnels they burrow. Now, if youre opposed to killing small creatures -whether on principle, or due to the ick factor -you can trap and remove the mole to a remote location away from other peoples lawns. If the problem is not too bad -you have a couple of dirt mounds in the yard or in an inconspicuous place like the edge of the garden -you can consider not doing anything, since moles do help aerate the soil. But if the problem is pretty bad, you do need to take action, one way or another. HOME TIP: To discourage moles from taking up residence in your lawn or garden, try spreading castor oil granules around tunnel entrances, or spray a solution of castor oil and cayenne pepper into mole tunnels.

When combined with a modular railing system that provides similar high performance and long-lasting beauty, composite decking offers endless mix-and-match options for incredible design flexibility to suit the style of any home. Go online and experiment with different resources and tools to figure out how your outdoor living elements can be integrated, says Florence. With Trex, for instance, the ideas are endless because you have so many more opportunities to create a really luxurious space. Dont forget the finishing touches. Customize your outdoor living space to make family and friends feel truly welcome. Add ambience for evening cookouts with dimmable LED deck lighting, and create an inviting lounge area with comfortable, durable furnishings or even outdoor speakers. You can choose to truly deck out a space with luxuries ranging from flat screen televisions to stone fire pits, but if the budget is tight, adding vibrant pillows or tropical flowers and plants serves as a quick and colorful pick-me-up.

The windows were rolled all the way up, and the pups were panting nonstop. I ran back into the store and asked the manager to page the dogs owner. Fortunately, the owner responded and went out to the car, saying he only meant to be inside for a few minutes. Can you let your readers know that leaving pets in a hot car, even only for a few minutes, could be a death sentence for them? Thanks. -Charlotte in Reno, Nev. DEAR CHARLOTTE: You told them, and I thank you! The temperature inside a parked car, even with the windows cracked to allow airflow, can rise dramatically within just 10 minutes on a moderately cool day. When its 80 degrees F. outside, a cars interior can heat up to 99 degrees in 10 minutes, and to 109 degrees in 20 minutes, according to a report by RedRover, a nonprofit animal protection organization. And if you think your dog is tough enough to take the heat, think again. Without sweat glands, dogs have trouble staying cool. And when their body temperature rises out of the normal range, their organs can be irreversably damaged in a shockingly short time. If that isnt enough to convince you, consider this: In some states, owners who leave their pets in parked cars have been charged with felony cruelty to animals. So take heed. If you must go somewhere that you cant bring your dog -like a grocery store, a tourist attraction or elsewhere -leave your pet at home. Send your questions or comments to ask@pawscorner. com. Did you know mosquitoes can transmit heartworm larvae to dogs, but fleas dont? Find out more in my new book Fighting Fleas, available now on Amazon.
