The 399-acre property at 2001 Macy Island Road in Kissimmee is one of a handful of properties purchased by the county group in 2010 for conservation. Formally a part of Osceola cattle pioneer Henry Partins ranch, the conservation area runs along Goblets Cove, one of Lake Tohopekaligas natural tributaries, and offers activities such as fishing, canoe and kayaking, areas for bird watching, picnicking and trails for both hiking and horseback riding. Park hours are from dawn to dusk, but the county offers overnight camping on the property if reserved in advance. This was an opportunity, when the cloud was over the economy as it was, for protecting some conservation lands and getting some things set aside that we might not have been able to afford later on. So, we were able to get some County preserves piece of history for public News-Gazette Photo/Andrew S ullivanKelly Ragland and her pit bull Ducoti won the award for Best in S how last Saturday evening during t he annua l Pet Parade event, hosted by H eavenly H oofs.

It wasnt to raise funds for their own athletic programs, which most of them have to do anyway; it was to help others in the community who need it.Harmony, St. Cloud high school athletes making a difference Submitted PhotoThe St. Cloud Lady Bulldogs raised money and accepted food donations for the St. Cloud Food Pantry on Saturday. Players handed out a list of non-perishable food of greatest need to the pantry to customers as they entered the store. See Difference, page A-3Osceola County Sheriffs detectives have charged a Kissimmee man arrested last week on child pornography charges with additional charges this week after finding nude photos of underage girls on his cellphone. Jon Cantino, 18, was served with felony warrants this week, including 10 counts of transmission of material harmful to minors by electronic device, five counts of certain uses of a computer device and two counts of lewd and l ascivious battery, Sheriff s spokesperson Twis Lizasuain said. He was arrested on Oct. 10 for counts of possession of child pornography after detectives found hundreds of images on the computer, some of which he unsuccessfully tried to upload to Facebook, at the Mallard Circle home he shares with his parents. Detectives found the nude photos of the teenage girls this week during further investigation. Both 15-yea r old victims, who reside in Orange and Osceola Counties, were contacted, and they told detectives Cantino asked them to send photos of themselves to him. On two occasions, one of the teenage girls met Cantino at his residence and they had consensual sex, Lizasuain said. Based on their statements and the evidence, Cantino was charged with the additional crimes and is currently in the Osceola County Jail on $75,000 bond.Two arrested for armed robberyTwo Kissimmee residents were arrested and charged with armed robbery Friday after allegedly striking the victim with a gun. At about 2:22 a.m., Osceola County Sheriffs deputies responded to Parkway Inn, located at 5367 W. U.S. Highway 192 in Kissimmee. Deputies spoke with the victim who said a minivan with a handicap license plate, driven by a female, later identified as Sheila White, 39, of 1002 Ocean St., Kissimmee, pulled up next to him. The van came to a stop and a man, Nico Carmiche, 19, of Studio 6 Drive, Kissimmee, Child porn suspect hit with more charges Police news See Police, page A-5 See County, page A-2News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanRiders, including Osceola County Commissioner Brandon Arrington and County Manager Don Fischer, as well as staff from local nonprofit Heavenly Hoofs and members of the Horses for Heroes veteran rehabilitation program, took to the trails on horseback within the newly opened Twin Oaks Conservation Area on the northeast corner of Lake Tohopekaliga on Friday morning. Behind the riders is the pair of oak trees for which the park is named.
Page A2, By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff W riter The Osceola County Bar Association officially opened the Legal Aid Society of Osceola County (LASO) program on Friday. The program is run by attorneys that are working pro bono (without pay) and will help Osceola County residents navigate through the legal system. For now, they will offer services in family law, covering divorces and parental cases. But once the association can gather more attorneys, it plans to expand its services to veteran and juvenile law. This is a way for people who cant afford to have an attorney to actually have an attorney look over their paperwork. So, these are people who are looking for pro bono services. They qualify through CLSMF and theyre able to use the kiosk, the computers, to fill out their paper work with the oversight of a panel attorney, Joy Carpenter, a panel attorney for LASO, said. The office is inside the Community Legal Services of Mid-Florida in Kissimmee, and is working with the state Bar Association. Flywire Technology, which works with small to midsize law firms, donated 10 computers to the program, each connected to a cloud network. Through this network, pro bono attorneys can access programs and data to assist clients, as well as for clients to connect to them through kiosks that will be built throughout the county in the future. The Legal Aid Society of Osceola County began a year ago, with a group of attorneys in the Bar Association wanting to provide their services to the lowincome residents in the county. From there, they found ways to get the equipment, space and approval to operate as a legal aid society. Thats one of our goals. Take all of the attorneys that are in the spirit of pro bono and believe in helping the residents in their communities, and give them a place to be able to do that, as well as provide access to the tools to allow them to help larger numbers of people, Carpenter said. The society already has been holding workshops in its office for the past couple of months, guiding residents through filling out divorce paperwork. But, LASOs real work is on their website lasoproject.org, where potential clients go through the Intake Unit to find out if they qualify for services. If they do, they will go through an interview with an attorney, either in person or over the phone, to talk about their situation and find out what help they need. A lot of these people coming in could never imagine paying a lawyer an hourly fee that lawyers get. Its either you can pay your bills or you can hire a lawyer. This way, they can pay their bills and we can help them to do what they need to do, Kissimmee City Commissioner Sara Shaw said. The Osceola County Bar Associations efforts for LASO have encouraged other bar associations to provide free legal aid services of their own. Besides family, veteran and juvenile law, the Osceola Bar Association aims to expand even further to areas of law that effect low-income residents. For more information, contact LASO at lasoproject.org.Osceola Bar Association provides free legal aidabsolute treasures that people in the county moved to and live here for, Robert Mindick, Osceola County public lands manager, said. Twin Oaks was the first of t hese properties to be completed for the public, and county officials said it wont be the last. The Osceola County group, formally known as SAVE Osceola, already is working on their next conservation area, Cherokee Point. Located across Goblets Cove and Twin Oaks, the property holds a barn and adjoining house. The barn will be used as a space to rent for events, and the second story of the house will be designated as a bird watching area, according to Osceola County Community Resources Spokesperson Mary Beth Salisbury. With the opening of the conservation area, Heavenly Hoofs and veterans from their program Heroes and Horses rode the horse trail named in honor of their service, Heroes Way. County Commission Chairma n Frank Attkisson, Commissioner Brandon Arrington, M indick and other county officials joined them. Heavenly Hoofs is a group in Osceola County that provides equestrian therapy, or therapy through the interaction with horses. Heroes and Horses is only one of Heavenly Hoofs programs, and provide therapy to veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and physical injuries. Horses are like a oneway conversation, where you can talk to them, but you can tell by their actions that they do honestly care about humans, Chris Schwan, an Air Force reservist who has been volunteering full-time with the program for the past two months, said. You build a trust bond with them, and its a pretty unique bond. Nearly 45,000 plants of different varieties were planted on the property before its opening to start native growth in the area again. Future projects on Twin Oaks include hydrologic enhancements to the windmill-powered water trough for horses toward the front of the property and adding more native plants to restore a wetland on the northern part of the property.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A3 DifferenceContinued from Page A-1It was an effort to make a difference in their small part of the world, an annual event called Make a Difference Day. Globally, Make A Difference Day, the largest national d ay of community service involves volunteers around the world united in a common mission to improve the lives of others. Locally, the St. Cloud Bulldogs and Harmony Longhorns last weekend, as they have for the last nine years, raised money and accepted food donations for the St. Cloud Food Pantry. The athletes raised more than $1,100 in cash and collected more than three truckloads of food. Over the last nine years, the total is more than $10,000 and close to 40 truckloads of food. The room was up to the ceiling from food, said Harmony varsity football player and senior Chase Fields, who has been part of the service project ever since his father, Harmony baseball coach Mike Fields, started it. Mike Fields said he saw a flyer in the Osceola NewsGazette in 2004 about Make A Difference Day, and looked into it, seeing that groups can choose their own service project. I was looking for a volunteer activity for my team and I though this might be a food direction to go, he said. I had heard that the St. Cloud Food Pantry was struggling, and still is, so I chose the pantry as our project. In the first year, it was just baseball and football (teams) collecting. Each year we have asked other teams and clubs to join us. Later, I thought that making this a joint project with St. Cloud would be a good idea so I asked their baseball, softball and girls b asketball t eam to join in the fun. Working in shifts, teams from the two schools staffed the station outside the WinnDixie store from before 9 a.m. into the late afternoon. Players handed out a list of nonperishable food of greatest need to the pantry to customers as they entered the store. Shoppers would then drop their contributions or money on their way out. The players and coaches then load the food into trailers and deliver the food to the Pantry and load it into its storage area. Mike Fields said Winn-Dixie manager Ray Whobrey, who also coaches St. Cloud High softball with John Brady, as well as management at a nearby Publix supermarket, have gone out of their way over the years to ensure the project has been a success. Of course, without the support of all our coaches and student-athletes this would not be possible, Fields said. We usually do it on the normal Make A Difference Day, which is the last Saturday of the month, but the manager of WinnDixie (Brady) suggested we move it up a couple of weeks since sales and donations are always higher at the beginning of the month at his store. Anything they can give us is very much appreciated. This has been a very rewarding community service for everyone. It is certainly a win-win situation. Our kids get to help out people in need and the Food Pantry certainly needs the help. Upperclassmen at the school have been involved in the service project for many years. St. Cloud senior girls basketball player Seashell Sanchez has participated all four of her high school years, and not because a coach coaxed her into it. Its been fun doing this with my teammates, and I enjoy helping people. Its really rewarding, she said. And I dont mind giving up a weekend to do this. Sanchez said she thought her shift of basketball players collected the most food it had in any year shes been involved. And people were giving money too, it just kept coming in, she said. People giving $10, $15, one person gave $20. Chase Fields said Make A Difference Day is something he may even come home for if he attends an out-of-town college next year. At the end of the day you can tell that one person can make a difference, he said. Over the years I just remember people giving. One person gave us a $50 bill one time. And when we unload all the food at the Food Pantry, they are so appreciative.

Page A4, Some days I still miss it. How thrilling it was when it was new. How liberating. How captivating, fascinating, magical, demanding. So demanding that sometimes I felt stalked. And still I loved it. The world wasnt as complicated then, of course, and my needs, too, were simpler. Back then, I didnt even know all the desires Id apparently been suppressing: the desire for constant contact, the desire for incessant affirmation and stimulation, the relentless desire for novelty. It opened up those desires in me, back before I understood that one desire leads to another and pretty soon Id want more than it could deliver. No. No. In that simpler time, I merely loved it, my little BlackBerry. Until I didnt love it anymore. You know how it goes. Everything new eventually grows old. Stops seeming special. Starts to annoy. You start to want the next hot thing, the thing other people have and flaunt, the thing that will entertain you more. So I got rid of my BlackBerry, only to discover, as the old song says, that you dont know what youve got till its gone. I miss it, I said to a friend the other day. Kind of. Not enough to want it back. But still. I feel the same way, she said. We sighed. And talked for a while about the good old days, back when the BlackBerry was all we needed. Why, we wondered, had we been so eager to replace our BlackBerrys? Sure, they were all work and no play, but what did we get in exchange? Ugly Androids that didnt improve our lives nearly as much as wed imagined and, in fact, annoy us in whole new ways. With an Android in our pocket, there is no escape from anything ever. And so we look back fondly to our BlackBerry days, the way you might remember that stick-shift car that you wouldnt want to drive again but remember tenderly because it represents a younger, simpler you. Such BlackBerry nostalgia seems to be creeping up in various places. Its not nostalgia that will spur the smartphone masses to return to their BlackBerrys, merely the kind of retrospection that comes with the news that something that once traveled through life with you seems ready to expire. BlackBerrys days as a mobile device maker are likely numbered, one news account predicted this week. Other reports use the kinder term ailing. Whatever term you use, the BlackBerry as we knew it doesnt appear long for this world. The other night, as I listened to a newscast about the latest effort to save the BlackBerry -a buyout by some Canadian investors -the news crew couldnt resist recalling, in the tone of a eulogy, their own early encounters with the gadget that put the smart in smartphone. Remember the term CrackBerry? one of them said, and they laughed. Ha ha ha. I remembered. CrackBerry. A joke, an insult, a term of endearment, proof of the BlackBerrys addictive power, so clever before it was cliche. And so 2007. In smartphone time, 2007 may as well be B.C. A mere four years ago, way back in 2009, almost half the smartphones in the United States were BlackBerrys. A report released in August showed BlackBerrys current share a hair below 3 percent. Its newest model, released this year, sank like a phone wearing cement boots. So, yes, BlackBerry is the phone we loved, then loved to hate, then abandoned. What modern person wanted a BlackBerry when you needed a smartphone to watch Game of Thrones while you were waiting for the bus? Owning a BlackBerry came to feel like wearing a mullet. Time for a makeover, dude, fast. And yet I still see BlackBerrys here and there, and when I do, regret washes over me briefly, like the wistful sun of late September. In the r ight light, that baby still looks good. But with smartphones, as in other matters of love, life tends to be a one-way road, no turning back.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A7 Week 8 Follow us on Twitte r Kowboys alone atop 7A-6 By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Osceola finally returns to Kowboys field today at 7:30 p.m. to host Celebration after a five-week stretch of road games. Osceola, 5-2 and 3-0, needs a victory today to stay undefeated in 7A District 6. Celebration is 0-7 and 0-3 after a 41-0 loss against Harmony. OHS concluded its road trip with a crucial 7A-6 victory at Lake Nona last week, 35-21. The Kowboys overcame three turnovers, a muffed punt and 120 yards in penalties with an impressive running game that totaled 403 yards. The Kowboys held the powerful Lake Nona offense to just 53 yards after the intermission. So dominant was the Kowboys running game that Lions Coach Anthony Paradiso, who gambled on fourth down plays five times, didnt bother stopping the clock while OHS ground down the last 6:39 in the fourth quarter. Our offensive line got after some people. Thats a line that sometimes has three sophomores on it, Osceola Coach Doug Nichols said. Fullback Laderrien Wilson, also a sophomore, trucked the Lions defense 25 times for 192 yards and three touchdowns, and teammate Nazayah Brown, another sophomore, scooted around the edges nine times for another 108 yards and two touchdowns. Coach told us that if it was working, wed keep doing it, Wilson said. Meanwhile, the Kowboys defense clamped down after giving up 21 first half points, 14 of those coming off turnovers. Lake Nona quarterback Tucker Israel, Central Floridas passing leader averaging 340 yards per game, was held to 186 yards (25-for-35) and only 47 yards in the second half as the Kowboys blanketed his favorite receiver, FSU commit Ryan Sousa. Sousa had eight catches, but for just 39 yards. His first five receptions, mostly bubble screens, accounted for minus 1 yard. Kowboys defensive coordinator Scott Spencer said he assigned senior defensive back Juaquan Jenkins the task of following Sousa wherever he lined up in the Lions spread set. We told him last weekend that was what we were going to do, Spencer said. We did it because hes a heck of a football player. Hes always stepped up when you challenge him. We gave him a little help in the back, but we knew hed be able to handle it. Jenkins didnt disappoint the coaching staff. He said he was excited when Spencer told him that he would man up on Sousa. I was ready. I wanted it, he said. He got me on a slant (for 17 yards) once, but it worked out OK. It might have been my best game this year. Theres no telling what the score might have been had Osceola held on to the ball and avoided the shower of penalty flags. Osceola did not punt. The Kowboys average 104 yards in penalties and 2.5 turnovers through seven games. Lake Nona drove 79 yards on 14 plays and Sousa sneaked one yard to give the Lions a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. he drive followed Osceolas first turnover. The Kowboys came back and tied the score, moving 75 yards on six plays, Browns 31-yard run setting up Wilsons 19-yard TD dash. The Kowboys muffed a punt at their 22, setting up the Lions next touchdown, but Scooter Fagans 40-yard kickoff return to the Lions 39 set up a fourplay scoring drive. Quarterback Daequan Harrison passed 29 yards to wideopen Akiel Hamilton to set up Browns 1-yard TD run to tie the score with 10:10 left in the half. RUSHINGPlayer Car. Yds. Avg.

County stats By Rick Pedone Sports EditorHarmony was all business last week in dispatching district 7A-6 rival Celebration, 41-0, at Storm field.The Longhorns, 4-3 and 3-1, host Liberty Thursday at 7:30 p.m. for another key district contest. The Chargers are 2-5 and 1-3, falling out of playoff contention after losing at Gateway last week, 17-10. The Longhorns jumped to a 7-0 lead just seconds into the game when quarterback Jeremiah Murray found Tristan Reeves on a 58-yard TD pass play. After a punt return, the Longhorns struck again on their next possession for a 14-0 lead and werent challenged by the Storm, who slipped to 0-7 and 0-3. Artell Blackwell rushed 19 times for 120 yards and a touchdown. Jose Aquilar rushed for 68 yards and a touchdown, and Alex Britton gained 53 yards and scored twice. Pierce Vermillion also ran for a score for the Longhorns, who substituted for much of the game. We did a good job of coming out and scoring early. I think we were able to put some things together that weve seen coming along offensively, Butler said. The offensive line is playing more aggressively. Despite limited duty Horns linebacker Colton Keene went over 100 tackles (101) for the season before leaving the game. The Longhorns, over .500 for the first time since winning their 2011 season opener, control their playoff destiny and can be no worse than the district runner-up by beating Liberty and, after an open date, Lake Nona on Nov. 1. Weve got to win out. Thats the most important thing at this point, Butler said. Harmony emerged from the Celebration game without a serious injury, although senior running back Jacob Shearsby was lost for the season after suffering a fractured vertebrae against Osceola three weeks ago. Liberty has been a challenge for Harmony recently, coming up with victories Bulldogs beat up after loss Panthers still in district race Harmony taking care of businessSee Kowboys, page A-8Osceolas Laderrien Wilson leaves behind a wake of Lake Nona defenders has he runs for a big gain Friday.

Daniel Pearson For the News-Gazette Former Florida State Head Coach Bobby Bowden used to preach the importance of the kicking game, saying that special teams accounted for a full third of the outcome of most games. Bowden would have upped the percentage to 100 as special teams play, directly or indirectly, accounted for all the scoring in Gateways 17-10 district win over Liberty Friday at the Ridenour complex. The Panthers grabbed a 7-0 lead when they blocked a Liberty punt and recovered on the Chargers 1-yard line to set up a short touchdown run by Isaiah Wharton, the countys leading rusher with 660 yards.On Libertys next possession, a bad snap forced punter C harle s VanStralendorff to scramble, where he was tackled on the 35-yard line. Three plays later, Gateway made it 14-0 when Wesley Escobar scored from 24 yards out on a quick-hitter up the middle.Kickert Santiago Henoa made it 17-0 late in the second quarter when he capped a seven-play, 53-yard drive with a 35-yard field goal. Special teams continued to play a major role in the game when Henoas 22-yard field goal was blocked in the third quarter and scooped up by Libertys Justin Winkler, who raced 83 yards for a touchdown to cut the gap to 17-7. A Liberty drive two possessions later ended with a 37-yard field goal by VanStralendorff and cut the lead to 17-10. Kicking a lso played a role at the end of the game. After the field goal, Liberty successfully executed an onsides kick to regain possession with 2:28 remaining. Quarterback Patrick Knight drove the Chargers to the 26, but the young freshman missed on three passes and took a sack.That was a weird one for us, but well take the win, Gateway head coach Marlin Roberts said. Depending on See Panthers, page A-9 By Rick Pedone Sports Editor The balance of St. Clouds football season got tougher after it lost three starters, perhaps for the remainder of the season, during last weeks 49-8 setback at South Lake (6-1). The Bulldogs, 2-5 and 1-2, visit Lake Nona Friday at 7:30 p.m. for a 7A-6 district contest. Quarterback/running back Brian Steinmetz and receiver Reece Austin left the South Lake game with concussions, and linebacker Juan Diaz injured his Achilles tendon. Diaz is out for the season, and Steinmetz and Austin, who was airlifted from the game, will not return until they complete the concussion protocol. We got banged up, Bulldogs Coach Bryan Smart said. South Lake is a good football team. Theyre athletic, theyr e physical, and theyre very well coached. The Bulldogs led, 8-7, in the first quarter when Jonathan Stewart scored and ran for two points, but South Lake countered with a quick-strike TD on its next play and then a Bulldog fumble opened the floodgates. Smart said that the Bulldogs likely will go to the JV team to fill spots on the See Bulldogs, page A-9
Page A8, A-8 HornsContinued from page A-7Lake Nona struck back when Israel found receiver Deondre Farrior between a pair of OHS defenders for a 38-yard TD play with 6:35 left in the half. But, again, OHS came right back, this time moving 60 yards in five plays. Wilson ran 28 yards and Brown motored 20 before Wilson plunged in from the 2 with 4:35 left before intermission, tying the score at 21. Lake Nona, in a bizarre decision, went for fourthand-4 from its 25 and came up empty with 2:33 left, but after the Kowboys moved to the Lions 8 and were poised to take the lead, back-to-back penalties moved the ball back to the 21 and Harrison was intercepted in the end zone. I dont know what we were thinking there, Nichols said. In the second half, OHS kept on running (for 195 yards), but Lake Nonas offense shrank (Israel was 8-of-11 for 47 yards). Nichols said that Spencer and his staff make all the decisions about the defense. I dont know what those guys are going to do. They get in their group and we get in ours (the offense) and we dont see each other over the weekend, Nichols said. I just stay out of it. The second half is the reason why I do that. Ive known (Spencer) long enough to know that whatever they need to do over there will get done. O sceola took the l ead, 28-21, on Browns 2-yard run with 1:17 left in the third quarter, and after the Kowboys defense again stopped Lake Nona on a fourth-down play at the Lions 43, Wilson capped a seven-play drive with his third TD run from the 12-yard line. We worked hard this week. We were in pads three days and we went hard, Wilson said. Our offensive line did a great job. I just put my all into it. Lake Nona slipped to 4-2 and 2-1. Osceola is a heavy favorite against the Storm today and the game counts in the district standings. The Kowboys, No. 10 in Class 7A, can clinch the district championship with a win today and another next week against Gateway. Osceola defenders Treyvon Simmons (3), Mikeice Adams (10) and Juaquan Jenkins surround Lake Nona receiver Deondre Farrier.News-Gazette Photo/Andrew Sullivan Kowboys Continued from page A-7the past two seasons. Last year, the Chargers scored late in the fourth quarter to win, 12-8, on a flooded field. Two years ago, the game was postponed until Saturday because of lightning, with the Chargers winning, 50-20. Thats left a sour taste for our kids. They remember that. It wont take a lot of talking to get them ready to play this week, Butler said. The Chargers, though struggling, have plenty of offensive weapons, Butler said. The quarterback (Patrick Knight) is pretty good, and No. 5 (Kyle Sharman) and No. 14 (Markel Brown) can make things happen, Butler said. They fly around on defense, the way our guys do. Liberty Coach Cory Johns said his team was in position to win at Gateway. We were in the red zone three of four times but couldnt finish, he said. We just have to learn how to take advantage of opportunities when they are presented. Lopez has 4 TDs in PHS loss By Rick Pedone Sports Editor Poincianas Josh Lopez had a game for the ages last week against Space Coast, but unfortunately the Vipers spoiled homecoming for the Eagles, 63-38. Lopez, a senior, scored four touchdowns in different ways: a 15-yard reception, a 60-yard run, a 78-yard punt return and a 95-yard kickoff return. I was proud of Josh, thats not something you see often, Poinciana Coach Jeff Mathis said. The Eagles, 2-4, visit Tenoroc (0-6) Thursday at 7 p.m. for their second 5A-10 district game of the season.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A9 PanthersContinued from page A-7 A-9 what side you were standing on and depending on what possession you were talking about, special teams played a huge role in the outcome of the game. Still, I was extremely pleased with the play of our defense. They didnt give up a touchdown. Our offense moved the ball well at times, but we need to work on our consistency and learn how to finish drives.While Liberty controlled time of possession and ran 58 plays from scrimmage compared to 37 by Gateway, the Chargers were outgained by the Panthers in total offense, 302-211. Individually, Wharton gained 141 yards on 13 carries and scored a touchdown for the Panthers, while teammate Wesley Escobar added 86 yards rushing on eight carries. Jacob Rodriguez was the workhorse for the Chargers, gaining 75 yards on 21 carries. Darnell Clayton added an interception for the Panthers. The win lifted Gateway to 3-4, 2-2 in the district, while the Chargers fell to 2-5, 1-3. Gateway played its last home game and takes this week off to prepare for Osceola Oct. 25. The Panthers have an outside chance of making the playoffs with wins at Osceola and Celebration. Regardless of whether we have a chance to make the playoffs, we have a lot of play for down the stretch, Roberts said. This was senior night and we sent those guys off with a win in their last home game. Now we need to finish strong. varsity roster that opened after the injuries. Were just trying to fight through this. It hasnt been an easy season and weve had our problems, but from here everything can only go up, Smart said. Lake Nona, a 35-21 loser to Osceola last week, is 4-2 and 2-1. Quarterback Ryan Sousa has passed for 1,900 yards. Like St. Cloud, it must win Friday to stay in the playoff hunt. Its not great timing (to have so many injuries), but well do what we can. Were not out of it, yet, Smart said. Bulldogs Continued from page A-7 0-2 in the district. Poinciana was unable to contain V ipers quarterback Nick Rittenhouse, who passed for five touchdowns. Lopez gave the Eagles leads of 7-0 and 14-7 after his TD run and punt return, but the Vipers countered with a pair of TD throws from Rittenhouse to make it 21-14. The Vipers didnt trail after that. Ive seen some good high school quarterbacks, but that kid (Rittenhouse) was spot on all night, Mathis said. Poincianas Jonathan Lindstrom passed for two touchdowns, and Maurice Anglin caught a TD pass and ran for a score. The Eagles defense has surrendered 118 points the past two games. Thats concerning, but Mathis said that Poinciana still owns its future. Weve got three district games coming up. If we win them, were in (the playoffs), Mathis said. Then, we have the season finale (against Liberty), a game that always has some interest here. So, weve got four games left that make a difference, and whens the last time that has happened at Poinciana?

Poincianas biggest party will be Sunday. For the seventh year in a row, Vance Harmon Park will be the stage for the communitys largest block party. So many people in the community just expect it to happen and anticipate this celebration of Hispanic heritage. This was a vision just one woman had but this one woman is a force of nature. Myriam Santiago moved to Poinciana in 2005. Santiago came here from Chicago and like many do, the plan was retirement. That plan did not last for long. While walking through Walmart, she noticed how the Hispanic population was prevalent. Santiago knew she could compliment and celebrate this culture, a one she knows well. Santiago was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Around the time she was 5 years old, Santiago began to realize that her way to achieve a good life, a life with limited struggles, was through education. Santiago applied herself to her studies and graduated from high school at age 15. She then went to the University of Puerto Rico and received her bachelors degree by age 18 and began teaching second grade in her hometown of Carolina. While teaching got Santiagos career in motion, it also allowed her to take advantage of an opportunity to come to the U.S. A group from Chicago went to Puerto Rico looking for 277 teachers to bring back and add to this divertive melting pot. Santiago was recruited, and that allowed her to achieve her masters degree. S antiagos next step was a long tenure with the Illinois Department of Children and Families (DCF). She retired as a supervisor for DCF after 29 years of service. In addition to these career achievements, Santiago was involved with her Chicago community. She was instrumental in obtaining grants and services to transform an unused building into a daycare center, allowing tee age mothers to return to school or pursue their career goals. Santiago also facilitated festivals and pageants, celebrating her native Puerto Rico by bringing it to Chicago. And now Santiago is sharing this with the community of Poinciana, presenting a Hispanic Heritage Festival, the seventh to be held here. Santiago and her son, Joey Mollfulleda, operate Promociones Cultura y Herencia Hispana. There first festival in Poinciana had 500 people in attendance. Last year, nearly 10,000 were drawn to this free event. People ask me if I would move t he f estival out of Poinciana. I came from Chicago to Poinciana. I am not going to move the festival, said Santiago. Celebrate the culture and Myriam Santiagos labor of love. Its her gift to Poinciana. The Association of Poinciana Villages, Inc. is working with Goodwill Industries of CFL to present a Job Search Employability Skills Workshop. The next part to this series is Thursday from 10 a.m. to 12 noon. This part will focus on creating cover letters mad resumes. During this workshop participants will have the opportunity to learn how to construct both a resume and a cover letter. Participants also will receive insight what employers look for when presented with both these items. The following weeks workshop on Oct. 25 will focus on dressing to impress and interview tips. The goal is to teach you how to make a good lasting impression on an employer during an interview. Learn Lisa DCatoPoinciana Writer Section B Go to www.aroundosceola.com for all St. Cloud news October 17, 2013 Including: oinciana L By Katie Pedone For the News-Gazette He became a professional athlete at the age of 31, a speaker at 47, and an author at 50. Former WCW and WWE Wrestling Champion Marc Mero has seen it all, and on Sept. 24, he shared his stories of tragedy and triumph with the audience in the Liberty High School auditorium as a stop on his 2014 Never Give Up Tour. Mero spoke about serious topics such as substance abuse, peer pressure, bullying and suicide on a heart-toheart level referencing people and situations he had personally encountered. He openly shared stories of his own success and failure and offered countless words of advice and encouragement. Quotes such as, Happiness is key to success, I believe, Never give up, and Mero and the audience chanted Choices, throughout the night as Mero shared how he has become the happiest man alive. Listing time and time again where he had fallen off his path, pushed a loved one behind, and lost who he was, Mero opened the eyes of all ages that no matter what story you have or what choices you have made, it is never too late to turn around and take the step into the direction of your dreams. He pushed people of all ages to evaluate those they surround themselves with and encouraged them to tell friends and family how much they are loved and appreciated every day. Mero had shared a number of suicide stories associated with bullying of school-aged students and focused heavily on the importance of reaching out to others and assuring they never feel alone. I had been bullied when I was a kid, and I had been the bully, Mero said, I know what they are going through; no child should ever feel alone. When speaking to students, Mero said he liked to pass out goal charts for students to write down their own dreams and goals much like Mero did when he was a kid. Im going to become a professional athlete, Im going to win rookie of the year, and Im going to buy my mom a house, were the top goals on Meros chart, all of which he accomplished. In just the first week here in Osceola County, Mero had received hundreds of letters from students moved by his speaking, most offered him appreciation for helping them find the light in their tough times. Others shared their own dreams and goals Mero had inspired them to make. Im going to do it, Im not afraid anymore. Im going to go to school, Im going to become a doctor and Im going to be an actress, wrote one student. This was Meros first stop at a school in Osceola County and he had big dreams for more. I want to go to every single school in Osceola County, he said, I want to help save our kids. At a cost of $2,000 per school, it wont be a cheap task but Mero has hope that the funding will be made. Meros team even sold merchandise after the show, vowing to put the proceeds toward future shows in the county. Senior Austin Gulde was supportive of the drive to bring Mero to other schools in the county. I think the things he talked about were important and other students should hear what he has to say. It could help out a lot of young teens that are in tough situations, he said. At the end, Mero just hoped for one thing. I just want people to take away that life is so precious. I wish my family could see me now because Im the happiest Ive ever been, but Im so thankful that I can do this. Helping the students means the world to me.

Extension ServicesTeresa Zapolska was a resident of Long Island, NY when she died in 2012. She did not have the benefit of a will and since she died intestate, and without any known next of kin, the probate court a ppointed a public official to administer her estate and collect all assets and pay her administration costs. This official, known as the public administrator will attempt to locate all possible relatives on the paternal and maternal side of the family. This is usually a difficult task since he handles several hundreds of these cases every year and his resources are very limited. Therefore if all of the rightful heirs are not found, the money in her estate of approximately $400,00 may escheat to the State Treasury. You can help prevent this escheat to the State Treasury if you know of any legal or blood relatives of Teresa Zapolska. They may be living on Long Island or tate of Florida. Here is the known f amily g enealogy of Teresa Zapolska. Teresa Zapolska was born February 26, 1929 in New York City. It is believed that she married twice but never had any children. She died on May 8, 2012, at her home in Westbury, Long Island, and was buried in the Holy Rood Catholic Cemetery, Westbury, NY. Her father, Louis Zapolski, who was born in 1903 and died in November 1993,also was buried in the Holy Rood Catholic Cemetery. Her mother, Stella Mulzoff, was born in 1904 and died in 1992, was buried in the Holy Rood Catholic Cemetery. There were no brothers or sisters of Teresa ZapolskaThere were no known nephews or nieces of Teresa Zapolska.Her paternal grandfather, Ludwig aka Louis Zapolski, was born about 1880 in Poland and died about 1960 Her maternal grandfather, Frank Mulzoff, was born about 1865 in Germany and died in 1933 in Queens County, NY. It is believed that he is buried in the Catholic Cemetery of St. John in Middle Village in Queens, NY. It is alleged that Teresa Zapolska may have had an uncle and several paternal and maternal cousins surviving.

Ma ny lenders had f eared they wouldnt be able to process and close loans until the government reopened, mainly because with closures at the Internal Revenue Servic e, lenders cannot obtain tax transcripts as they normally do when unde rw riting loans.

In Central Florida, the true holiday pumpkin patch may be few and far between, but searching and finding the perfect pumpkin for your jack-o-lantern can still be a fun, family event. Pumpkins are native to North America. The Irish and English immigrants began the tradition of carving jack-o-lanterns for Halloween. This was not their traditional produce of choice. They used turnips and beets in their native countries. Soon they discovered that pumpkins were even better suited for carving and placing a light within. With that, it quickly became an American tradition. Of course, the most common use of pumpkins in America is for carving jack-o-lanterns or for making pies. Pie pumpkins are typically smaller than the larger jack-o-lantern pumpkins and the flesh is sweeter and less watery. However, you can substitute the jack-o-lantern variety of pumpkin for pie with fairly good results. When selecting a pumpkin from the store, look for one that has a stem that is at least 3 to 4 inches long. If the stem is too short, the pumpkin will decay quicker. Avoid pumpkins with blemishes and soft spots, as these are signs of decay. A healthy pumpkin should be heavy. No need to look for that perfect pumpkin shape. A lopsided pumpkin is not necessarily a bad pumpkin. If you plan to use the pumpkin for pie, you can figure one pound of raw, untrimmed pumpkin for each cup of pumpkin puree. Finding the perfect pumpkin can be a lot of fun, but next year, why not grow your own pumpkin. With new varieties of pumpkins being discovered, there are a few that seem to do well in central Florida gardens. Pumpkins are a warm-season crop and do not tolerate frost, which make them perfect for the spring vegetable garden. In order to have pumpkins in time for Halloween, they should be seeded in your garden by July 4th. Howden and Jackpot are the two best varieties for jack-o-lantern pumpkins in Florida. Pumpkins are vines; therefore they need plenty of space to grow. Plan to provide one pumpkin plant at least 6 feet in each direction. Pumpkins require moderate fertilization and need regular watering to ensure good growth. Pumpkins plants also like organic compost. Mix to 1 pound of compost, such as cow manure or plant compost, per square foot in the planting area before planting the seeds. Celebrate Fall with the Osceola County Historical Society (OCHS) as they present their second annual Pioneer Pumpkin Patch. Pioneer Village The Historical Pioneer Village serves as a beautiful backdrop for family pictures and fallthemed fun, as guests have the opportunity to pick the perfect pumpkin in all shapes and sizes.

Thursday, October 17, 2013 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page C3 Q: My youngest brother stayed at my house for the weekend and at some point, somebody kicked a hole through the bathroom door. All the way through! Is there a way to repair it? -Stacy in Hampton Beach, N.H. A: On a temporary basis, just for privacy and safety, you can patch the damaged door by attaching a piece of plywood to either side using wood screws. The plywood should overlap the hole by at least an inch on all sides. However, youll need to replace the door completely, once you have the time and the finances. That your brothers friends managed to knock a hole through it means the door was probably hollow, which is common for interior doors. It will be less expensive to replace than a solid wood door. Also on the plus side, you can replace it with the door of your choice. Another option is to replace the entire frame, allowing you to purchase a prehung door. Replacing the door properly will take a little bit of skill. If youve done some basic carpentry before (using power tools, etc.) you can handle a door replacement. Otherwise, you may want to hire a contractor to do the entire door replacement. Ask for a written quote before agreeing to any work. Before heading to the home-improvement store for a replacement, measure the height and width of the door and take those measurements with you. Youll need the new door plus -if you want to completely replace the hardware -new hinges and a lockset (which includes the doorknob and latch). You also can use the old hardware to save money. If you plan to replace the door yourself, plan ahead. Online videos can give a great visual overview of the task. HOME TIP: If your door scrapes the floor slightly on opening and closing, place a piece of sandpaper on floor where it rubs and open/close the door across the sandpaper a few times.

(c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc. Q: I have copies of a series of letters written by my fifth-generation grandfather in Washington County, Ky., to his son in Rushville, Ind. The letters were sent over a period of time from 1851 to 1874 and cover such topics as crop problems and the impact of the Civil War. I am wondering if they have any monetary value or what significance they would be to 19th-century American histories. -Bob, Rancho Cucamonga, Calif. A: I spoke to several document dealers, who seem to agree that while your letters sound interesting, they would not be worth a great deal of money. For example, one told me that he had just sold a packet of two dozen letters from a Confederate soldier to his family in Mississippi, covering 1862 through the wars end. The collection sold for $750, and I suspect your letters might be worth about that amount. The significance to the history of Washington County, Ky., however, is another matter. Two sources that might be helpful are the Historical Societies of Kentucky, P.O. Box H, Frankfort, KY 40602; and the Washington County Historical Society, 107 Carolyn Court, Springfield, KY 40069. *** Q: I would like information about some Zane Grey books I have, including several first editions. -James, Burlington, Iowa A: Did you know that Zane Greys first name was Pearl? One of the dealers who is an expert in buying and selling collectible books, including those of Zane Grey AKA Pearl, is Mike Riley, owner of the Book Gallery, 50 W. Main St., Mesa, AZ 85201; and firstname.lastname@example.org. According to Riley, the value of a book is determined by at least four factors: author, title, edition and condition. Riley adds that the original dust cover can add dramatically to the value of a book. *** Q: I have a six-pack of J.R. Ewing private stock premium beer, which was brewed in San Antonio by the Pearl Brewing Company in 1980. What is the value? -Mary Lou, Albuquerque, N.M. A: Not much. Both the J.R. Ewing and the Billy Beer from the Jimmy Carter era sell for less than $20 for an unopened sixpack. Both are curiosities, but not very valuable ones. Write to Larry Cox in care of King Features Weekly Service, P.O. Box 536475, Orlando, FL 32853-6475, or send e-mail to email@example.com. Due to the large volume of mail he receives, Mr. Cox is unable to personally answer all reader questions. Do not send any materials requiring return mail. (c) 2013 King Features Synd., Inc.Someone kicked hole in bathroom door Is there historical value in old family letters? By Samantha Mazzotta DEAR PAWS CORNER: Is it true that the U.S. Department of Agriculture is banning professional dog breeding? -Concerned Owner in Iowa DEAR CONCERNED: Nope, its not true. However, the USDA has implemented some new rules that will bring Internetbased pet breeders and sellers under the regulation of the Animal Welfare Act. The rules narrow the definition of a retail pet store and expand the agencys oversight of pet breeders. On the plus side, the new rules could make it harder for notorious puppy mills to exist, because breeders with four or more breeding females, and those who sell puppies sight unseen, now have to be licensed through the USDA. On the negative side, argues the American Kennel Club, the rules are nebulous in certain areas. For example, determining which females are truly breeding females can make things harder for small breeders and hobbyists. The AKC remains extremely concerned that the rule will make it difficult for individuals to self-report, as they would not be able to know -without an APHIS inspection ... before applying for a license -whether they would be required to obtain a license. And new standards for facilities could make it much harder for hobbyists and small breeders to raise dogs in their homes. It is not reasonable to expect small breeders, who keep a handful of dogs and make a choice to raise dogs in their homes, to be able to meet exacting USDA kennel engineering standards that are designed for large commercial wholesale or research kennels, the AKC said. So, dog breeders still will be in business when the new rules take effect in November, but they may have more work cut out for them. Cat and rabbit breeders also are affected.
