Serving Kissimmee, St. Cloud, Celebration, Poinciana, Harmony, Narcoossee, BVL Page B-1 By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff Writer A dream of both Kissimmee and Osceola County ocials for nearly 30 years, Shingle Creek will become an accessible, staterecognized recreational trail by the end of this summer. Bob Mindick, Osceola County public lands manager, made the announcement at the June 17 Kissimmee City Commission meeting. Two weeks ago, the county purchased the two pieces of land needed to open the entire creek as a nature conservation area to the public. ese two pieces of land, from Osceola Parkway to Babb Property to the north and from the end of Bass Road to Old Tampa Highway to the south, are the nal pieces for both Osceola County and Kissimmee to preserve the creek across the county. is land also extends the Shingle Creek Regional Trail, which plans to stretch from Lake to Osceola County. It goes from maybe some sections being 150 feet wide open areas to areas that are 20 feet wide with towering cypress trees on either side. So, it has a real varied experience, and I can tell you from being back in there, its hard to believe youre in the middle of the city. Its almost cathedral-like, just covered with the canopy of the trees and the sounds of nature around you. Its a really nice experience, said Mindick. While purchasing this land, Mindick and others have been working on rebuilding Steee Landing and clearing parts of the creek for the staterecognized Shingle Creek Paddling Trail. Steee Landing, located at 4266 W. Vine St. in Kissimmee, will serve as a central point for the Shingle Creek Biking Trail, Shingle Creek Paddling Trail and hiking trails along the creek.

Seat 4 candidates were Carmelo Garcia, Jerry Gemskie, Khorshed Hossain and Art Otero. One of these candidates will be replacing the current seat 4 Commissioner Cheryl Grieb, who is running for Osceola County Commission district 4. All of the candidates opposed a proposed project on Broadway that will reduce the roadway from four lanes to two, add backin angled parking and a roundabout at the end of Broadway. Fisher and Gemskie said that back-in angled parking wouldnt work for downtown Kissimmee, with Gemskie adding that it could be a hazard for the reduced lanes. Rentas, Otero and Garcia both said the project would create more trac during and aer construction, possibly shutting down businesses and making downtown Kissimmee harder to drive through and shop. eyve made those changes, I believe it was 20 years ago, and they made it look really nice. But, we have the other ends of downtown Kissimmee, so I dont think its appropriate that we keep making changes to just that one area. We still have two ends that need a lot of work. Its not fair also to close the roads, said Rentas during the debate. Candidates for both seats were divided on the topic of red light cameras. Rentas and Fisher supported red light cameras in the city, saying that they help slow down drivers and serve as a reliable eyewitness in the case of any accidents at intersections. Taveras, on the other hand, spoke against them because of the number of tickets residents have to pay. For seat 4, Gemskie supported them, citing that since the cameras e races are on: Candidates debate red light cameras, citywide revitalization News-Gazette Photo/Tiffanie ReynoldsFrom left, Kissimmee City Commission seat 4 candidates Jerry Gemskie, Khorshed Hossain, Art Otero and Carmelo Garcia voiced their opinions during a debate at City Hall on Wednesday.

See Debate, page A-9 By Ken Jackson Staff Writer For the third year in a row, Venues Today, a trade publication in the venue industry, named the Silver Spurs Arena in Kissimmee third in a list of the top ve venues in Florida in gross revenue. According to the report, the arena took in $2.1 million in gross event receipts for the year-long period ending May 31, placing third among venues with a seating capacity of 10,001-15,000, behind only Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena and the USF Sun Dome in Tampa. It sits ahead of the Stephen OConnell Center in Gainesville and the Central Florida Fairgrounds in Orlando. Seating on the oor for an in the round show pushes the Kissimmee arenas seating capacity to 10,500. A recently installed curtaining system can pare down the capacity and create a more intimate setting for concerts or the annual high school graduations. e facility broke the $2 million barrier in receipts, aer doing $1.5 million in business in 2012-13, by hosting nearly four times as many events (90) as others on the top-ve list. Some of those, including the Mecum Car Auction and Florida High School Athletic Associations state championships, can last more than a week. Weve done well to target our strengths, which is the buildings we have and the amount of land we have, Osceola Heritage Park General Manager Robb Larson said. e state of Florida is very competitive, promoters and acts have more options now to book buildings than ever. To have made this list three years in a row is very rewarding, and I like to think that success breeds success. We have the support of the county and the community. e bi-annual Silver Spurs Rodeo, the high school championships and the M ecum car show, which extended into a second week this year thanks to upgrades made to the facility, are annual staples. e arena added the Bahia Shrine Circus and the Good Guys car show to help break the $2 million mark in gross receipts. And we were one concert away from being in second place, Larson said. Other than that, it was a good year. Our whole team was thrilled. We have a great sta Im really blessed with. e Florida High School Athletic Association has held its girls and boys volleyball and competitive cheerleading state championships at the Silver Spurs Arena the last four years (ve for cheerleading). It also hosted the Sunshine State Conference mens and womens basketball tournament. e Heritage Club, a new amenity in the southwest corner of the building that features so lighting, plush seating, a full bar and a nightclub vibe, will have its grand opening soon, adding a VIP-type oering to guests for certain events. To ensure future growth, we have to make sure we keep raising the bar, Larson said.Silver Spurs earns 3rd statewide honor
Page A2, OSCEOLA AGOSCEOLA AGOSCEOLA AG www.aroundosceola.comGo to: Osceola County twin brothers qualify for national high school rodeo finals Only Rain Down the DrainMany residents spend the weekend working on yard projects. Whether planting, mowing, trimming or edg ing, be sure only rain goes down the drain. Developments often have manmade storm water ponds to hold water that runs off property, sidewalks and streets after rainfall. Sometimes, residents that live on stormwater ponds think they are nat ural lakes. Whether ponds are man made or natural, it is important to keep the water clean. So what does your weekend land scape project have to do with clean water and water quality? Lawn care practices, plant selection, plant placement, and pest management can either cause water pollution or help water quality in your neighbor hood water body and downstream at the lakefront. 1. Blow grass clippings or leaf debris into the yard not the street, storm drain or stormwater pond. Rainwater will flush them downstream. Not only is it illegal, but as leaves and grass clip pings decompose, they use oxygen in the water and living critters die. Fish kills may result and that is a stinky problem. No need to rake leaves that fall from trees and throw them away. If they fall onto driveways or side walks, blow them back onto the lawn. Mow over them to chop them fine and they will enrich the soil in your yard as they do in natural forests. Cities invest in street sweepers to collect leaf litter from streets so they dont wash into storm drains. Usually, the leaves are composted for use in city landscapes. 2. Water plants only as needed. The less you water, the less water is accidently sprayed onto paved surfaces like driveways, sidewalks and roads and carried downstream to stormwater ponds and lakes. Low maintenance lawn grasses like bahiagrass can go dormant (brown and dry) during dry spells and do not require much water or fertilizer to survive. 3. Fertilize using University of Flor ida IFAS recommendations to avoid excessive plant growth, diseases, and water pollution. Fertilize when plants are growing but not before heavy rain fall. Heavy rains leach the fertilizer below the roots of plants. Once dis solved in the soil, the fertilizer moves downstream with the stormwater runoff. Fertilizer helps plants grow, and that includes plants, called algae, that grow in pond water. Algae is an important part of the food web and helps feed many tiny critters that become fish food, but too much of a good thing is not pretty. Hot weather and lots of dissolved fertilizer in the water can lead to green algae scum on our ponds and lakes and possible fish kills. 4. Shopping for new plants for the yard? Be sure to get the right plant in the right place. Think beyond just sun or shade tolerant. Plant things that can survive with natural rainfall once established (after about two months). Refer to the Florida Friendly Plants searchable database at http://www. floridayards.org. The Florida Water Star Program also has a searchable plant database at http://floridawaterstar.com/landscaping.html You can identify plants by water needs, growth habit and many characteristics. Find out how large they will grow and space them for mature size, not just the size you see them in other landscapes. When designing new areas or replanting beds of plants, group them based on similar water needs so plants that need more frequent watering are not with drought tolerant plants. 5. Plant placement makes a difference in preventing stormwater run off, too. Leaves deflect raindrops and reduce the runoff force to slow water that would carry soil and nutrients downstream causing water pollu tion. Shade cools the soil for good root growth. 6. Use organic mulches such as leaves, pine needles and bark. Decomposing mulch and leaf litter in plant beds adds water holding capacity and nutrient holding capacity to our sandy soils. They can absorb and hold more water and fertilizer, resulting in less runoff. 7. Rinse off yard equipment and wash cars over lawn grass to avoid runoff. Use biodegradable cleaners instead of strong chemicals. 8. Recycle used motor oil instead of pouring it down storm drain. They go directly to a pond or lake carrying pollutants downstream. Prevent pollution while you care for your landscape this summer. If you notice your grass or other plants are not growing well, contact the Master Gardener volunteers at the UF IFAS Extension Office in Osceola County. They have many resources to help you identify plants growing in your yard and diagnose plant problems. Call 321-697-3000 or bring samples to the office at Osceola Heritage Park, 1921 Kissim mee Valley Lane, Kissimmee. Eleanor Foerste is part of the the natural resources faculty at UF/IFAS Extension in Osceola County.Twin brothers from Osceola County have qualified for the National High School Finals Rodeo. St. Clouds Andrew and Clayton Woeste, recent Harmony High School graduates, will make the trek west to the Sweetwater Events Complex in Rock Springs, Wyo. for this years NHSFR July 13-19. On the way west, they will stop in Shawnee, Okla. for the International Youth Rodeo and compete there. They qualified through the Florida High School Rodeo series that runs from September until its conclusion at the May state finals, held this year in Davie. Despite not having the best of runs in Davie, the Woestes qualified for nationals in their final year of eligibility. Andrew finished first in the state in saddle bronc and third in horse cutting. Clayton placed third in steer wrestling. The top four in each revent from each state qualify for nationals. Andrew won the saddle bronc season title despite falling awkwardly off his first ride in Davie and dislocating his shoulder and hip and injuring his pelvis. I just rode him and I fell that way, he said. I dont know if Ill bronc ride in Shawnee, but Ill be OK for Nationals, thats the big one. Clayton fell from second to third in the state after missing two steers in the three-performance weekend, but will still be going to Wyoming, and will wrestle steers and compete in tie-down roping in Shawnee. I really tried to make nationals my ninth-grade year, he said, adding that his job at Kissimmee Valley Feed and Supply took precedence for a little while before he took up steer wrestling this year. I was just working on calf roping, but then I started working with (Silver Spurs Rodeo champions) Kamry and Hardy Dymmek this year, Clayton said. I qualified, so this is it, and I hope to make the most of the chance. I might be a little bit nervous with all the people and new things, but Ill be all right. He said he sought out a family friend and a former national qualifier, Laci Whaley, of Kenansville, who competed in barrel racing and pole bending in Farmington, N.M. and Gillette, Wyo. She said, Dont get nervous, just do it, he said. Andrew Woeste, whos also been busy his year serving as the president of the states Junior Cattlemans Association, said hes been riding bucking horses since his junior year. Hes added an event each of the past four years, starting out with calf roping, then getting into team roping with Clayton the next year, and added horse cutting as a senior. He said he also sought out advice about how to handle an event as big as nationals, and the best advice he heard was to have fun with it. Everyone says that its an awesome and fun experience, but you have to be focused and stay in the game, Andrew said. You know what to do if youre making it to nationals, so treat it like a normal rodeo. If you react to the people and the TV youll lose your focus. In the state of Floridas all-around competition for the year, Andrew finished in eighth place; Clayton was 15th. The twins mother, Raylynne Ketchum, said competing on the high school rodeo circuit has taught her boys lots of life lessons, and theres the chance for more of that down the road. Theyve earned scholar ships from the FHSRA, and theres a chance to earn more at nationals, she said. Ketchum said that Andrew, and possibly Clayton, will be attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, on rodeo scholarships that could turn into full fouryear academic grants. Osceola Countys National Finals alumni include bull rider Caleb Sanderson, who has competed in the Professional Bull Riding national circuit and won a PBR event in 2010. He now lives in Stephenville. Florida Citrus Mutual Opens Florida Citrus Repository at LaCrosseFlorida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam recently opened a new state-of-the art facility to improve the health of Floridas endangered citrus industry. The Florida Citrus Repository at LaCrosse will expand the Citrus Germplasm Introduction Program, which provides a way to safely introduce healthy new citrus varieties into the state. The new varieties will increase the strength of Floridas endangered $9 billion citrus industry and allow Florida citrus to better compete in domestic and international markets. More than half of Floridas groves are infected with citrus greening, and citrus production is at a 30-year low, said Commissioner Putnam. This new state-ofthe-art facility will help growers replant lost trees and support a comeback of Floridas signature crop. The opening of the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services 20,000 square-foot facility will significantly increase production capacity to more than 20 new varieties each year. New varieties will match growers and consumers preferences of disease-tolerant, easy-to-peel and seedless citrus. All new varieties will go through an approval process that includes testing for pests and diseases. The states history of introducing citrus helps prevent the spread of pests and diseases from other states and other countries. The new plants are raised under quarantine until they are safe to release into the environment. With the spread of citrus canker and citrus greening statewide, finding new varieties to release is imperative to maintaining the health of Floridas $9 billion citrus industry, which directly supports 75,000 jobs. The LaCrosse facility is opening four months after the expansion of the states Dundee Biological Control Laboratory, which is integral to Floridas fight against citrus greening. The laboratory rears a beneficial insect, Tamarixia radiata, which attacks the Asian citrus psyllidthe vector of citrus greeningfor release throughout Floridas citrus production areas.USDAs 2013-2014 Florida Orange Crop Forecast Decreases The U.S. Department of Agricultures (USDA) monthly forecast of the 2013-2014 Florida orange crop, released Wednesday, decreased 6 million boxes to 104.3 million boxes. Early-mid varieties accounted for 53.3 million boxes while Valencias dropped 6 million boxes to 51 million boxes. This decrease is about what we expected with the continuing effects of HLB, or citrus greening so we are not surprised, said Michael W. Sparks, executive VP/ CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual, while taking a break at the Florida Citrus Industry Annual Conference (FCIAC). The flip side is without the resiliency and superior production methods of the Florida citrus grower it could have been worse. The crop is still very high quality. More than 750 people are now gathering at the Hyatt Coconut Point in Bonita Springs to discuss the state of the Florida citrus industry. The annual event mixes business, industry issues and camaraderie. Our record Conference attendance even in these trying times is a testament to our commitment to the future of our $9 billion industry and the 76,000 jobs it supports, Sparks continued. The USDA makes its initial estimate in October of each year and revises it monthly as the crop takes shape until the end of the season in July. However, the federal government shutdown delayed the initial estimate until Friday Nov. 8. During the 2012-2013 season, Florida produced 133.6 million boxes of oranges. Visit http://www.nass.usda. gov/Statistics_by_State/Florida/Publications/Citrus/ cpfp.htm for the complete USDA estimate. The USDAs estimate of the 2013-2014 Florida grapefruit crop stayed at 15.6 million boxes. Specialty fruit held steady at 3.83 million boxes. The yield for frozen concentrate orange juice (FCOJ) decreased to 1.57 gallons per 90-pound box.New online wildfire risk assessment tool now available to publicFlorida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam H. Putnam recently unveiled a new online tool designed to provide user-friendly public access to detailed wildfire risk information for cities, communities and homeowners. This interactive tool, known as the Southern Wildfire Risk Assessment Portal or SouthWRAP was developed by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services Florida Forest Service and the Southern Group of State Foresters. It is the first of its kind in the nation. SouthWRAP allows citizens, community leaders, fire professionals and decision-makers to work handin-hand to reduce wildfire risk, said Putnam. We encourage all Floridians to visit the website, learn about their risk and take action to protect their families and homes from the threat of wildfire. SouthWRAP allows users to pinpoint a specific location and identify wildfire threats based on landscape characteristics, historical fire occurrence, weather conditions and terrain. The site also routes users to resources that can help them tackle identified threats and reduce wildfire risk. This is an easy-to-use tool that puts sophisticated mapping and fire risk analysis technology at the fingertips of our citizens, said Jim Karels, state forester. SouthWRAP is as simple to use as any common online map service, with most users becoming proficient within minutes. The SouthWRAP Public Viewer is currently open and available to the general public at www. southernwildfirerisk.com/. The Professional Viewer, designed to support the community wildfire protection planning needs of government officials, hazard mitigation planners and wildfire professionals, will accept user applications starting July 7. The Florida Forest Service manages more than 1 million acres of public forest land while protecting 26 million acres of homes, forestland and natural resources from the devastating effects of wildfire.

Saturday, June 28, 2014 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A3 By Tiffanie Reynolds Staff Writer Aer 15 years of renovations and revitalization in downtown Kissimmee, the Downtown Community Redevelopment Agency (CRA) has begun talks to bring new development into its district. Craig Holland, interim downtown CRA director, presented to the Downtown CRA board at a June 20 workshop to address some of the changes that the CRA Advisory board and sta wanted to achieve. is included eliminating grants such as the residential paint voucher, facade matching grant and sewer and water incentives for businesses and teacher assistance grants. ose grants and incentives were removed because of how little they were used by residents in the agencys district, and it would free the funding for bigger redevelopment projects by potential developers. Really, what were talking about is a paradigm shi. If you think about it, when these grants were created it was to get people to move back into the historic district, renovate the old houses and move into downtown. ese incentives were all developed with that in mind. Well, now our focus is lets develop Pleasant Street parking lot, lets develop Hansel plant, lets develop Beaumont, lets develop all those vacant properties a quarter-mile walk from the train station and build housing, said Kissimmee City Manager Mike Steigerwald during the workshop meeting. Projected development in the downtown area is driving the change in the CRAs direction. e city is currently in negotiations with a developer for a new parking garage on Pleasant Street, which will serve as parking for the Lynx Intermodal Center and future SunRail station, but the developer will need the citys cooperation to fund the project to plan. Using the CRA, especially since the building is in its district, will prevent the city from using money in its budget to fund the garage. Steigerwald said that funding for the garage is on the same importance level as funding for the City Centre back in 2008. To make room for bigger projects, Holland has requested that the CRA designate an additional $100,000 for medium incentive projects. ese projects are for existing businesses that need funding for renovations that are outside of current grants, and for developers that need assistance in constructing a new building in the downtown CRA district. If approved, it would leave $100,000 for smaller incentives that the agency already oers. Not everyone on the CRA board supported eliminating the resident incentives and grants. Board members Wanda Rentas and Jose Alvarez spoke against eliminating the grants, saying that even if the CRA no longer wanted to focus on existing neighborhoods, they shouldnt be neglected. ey especially did not want to cut the residential paint voucher and facade grant. Holland said that the downtown CRA would rather focus on setting aside an additional $100,000 for medium incentives than talk about eliminating any existing grants. Once a director for the CRA is hired, the agency can decide which grants to keep.

Page A4, Editors note: e following two letter are in response to Osceola County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins June 21 column on red light running cameras. Red light camera questions still unanswered To the Editor: ank you for a very informative explanation of how the new cameras are going to work. Knowing the details about this undertaking has turned my doubts about it around almost 180 degrees, almost. You did fail to mention the $158 ne would result in points against the registered owners driving record only if they do not payup promptly. is omission could be thought of as an attempt to downplay the revenue producing aspect of this in favor of the safety factor, which is foremost. One question has not been answered, and that is how long aer the violation will the registered owner have to wait to receive the notice of a ne? More than two days in my estimate should cancel the ne when you consider some family shared vehicles are driven by several people and even aer a week, people cannot be expected to remember who was behind the wheel on a given day and time. I have received doctor bills six months aer services rendered so there should be some guarantee of reasonable expedite by law enforcement. e one hurdle you have not convinced me of is the fact that a registered owner of a vehicle might not be the driver at the time the violation occurred. is just goes too far and its inconceivable to me how law enforcement could overstep its authority and at the same time relinquish its responsibility to administer a moving trac violation fairly. Camera generated violations should fall into the same category as parking tickets otherwise you have overstepped your authority and moved closer toward the police state we all have been warned of. Big Brother is not a protector. Hes a thug hiding behind a badge. Citizens are well aware and you should be too. Jerry Mobely St. CloudOpposed to red light camerasTo the Editor: Commissioner Hawkins wrote, Authorities will now use red-light safety cameras to enforce trac laws and correct the dangerous and prevalent redlight running behavior that too oen leaves innocent drivers and passengers injured. Commissioner, we take exception with the part of the program that you report the red-light safety cameras will be use to enforce trac laws. To the uninformed observer of your statement, they would assume that your statement about trac laws is synonymous with red light running violations. But you and I know that you very carefully framed your statement to convey that they do not mean 100 percent the same. e reference to the terminology trac laws (violations) will be the largest portion of the ticket writing to come from the red light cameras program. Be truthful, for the public will hate you later if you fail to come clean now. Many states across our nation currently use red light cameras and therefore knowledgeable people know that the use of those cameras produce millions of dollars. Here in Florida, (Miami $5.8M, Tampa $2.8M, Orlando $1.7M, Hillsborough County $1.3M for scal year 2013) the money is extracted from the community where they are installed, but public safety did not improve proportionately. e report issued from the state research oce, the Florida Legislatives Oce of Program Policy Analysis and Government Accountability, dated Feb. 7, 2014, proves that point. Look them up on the computer. For this reason, we oppose the use of red light cameras. Since the charge for deliberately running a red light is the same as it is for say, rolling stop minor trac violation, we strongly oppose the use of red light cameras. In each instance, a $158 bill will ensue. Other minor trac violations, like front tires on the white line on the road when you stop for a red light and failure t o come to a complete stop behind the white line before turning right on red will each incur a $158 bill. Minor trac violations, which do not jeopardize public safety, pay the same charge as violations of deliberate red light running, of which no one will argue is a risk to public safety. Because the punishment does not t the crime, we oppose the use of red light cameras. Additionally, since no one knows what the cameras are programmed to take pictures for, it would seem the commissioners would train the public before they institute such severe procedures as red light cameras. Giving the few violators a one-month grace period before issuing a ticket for the oense does nothing for the 70,000 drivers in our area who would not commit that violation in the 30-day period but surely would commit that error in 45 days or 180 days later. In essence, training 100 people in our area and leaving our 69,900 others does not convey compassion in my way of thinking. It also does not represent good public commissioner responsibility. Only you commissioners know what trac laws you will be citing our residents for, but you are not telling us up front what they are. For those reasons, we oppose red light camera usage in our area. Beverly Sanders Poinciana John Adams nailed it right on the head. Way back on July 2, 1776, after the Continental Congress voted for independence from Great Britain, he wrote his wife, Abigail, that the event should be celebrated across the continent, not just in 1776, but every year, forever more, with parades, shows, games, sports and bonfires. And here we are, 236 years later, doing just that. Of course, if Adams could have envisioned all of the backyard fireworks displays, barbecues and swimming pools that most Americans take for granted as a part of the holiday, he might have emphasized one more thing: safety. Every year, thousands of people, more frequently children and teens, are injured handling or being around fireworks. In addition to injuries, fireworks also cause thousands of structure and vehicle fires each year. So play it safe this year, and pay attention to all those rules your mother used to tell you about fireworks safety. Always follow the instructions on the packaging if you buy fireworks and never let small children play with them. If you are the one setting off the fireworks, wear eye protection. You may think bigger is better, but light only one firework at a time, and dont ever try to relight that dud in the package that didnt go off the first time. Keep some water nearby. You can prevent that fire before it starts. And if you are in the area where others are behaving badly by using dangerous fireworks, get up and leave. Remember fire safety doesnt only apply to fireworks. Backyard grills can be another safety hazard over the holiday weekend. Follow all those safety rules on gas and charcoal grills and dont leave the grill unattended. Use long-handed tools made for cooking on the grill, and make sure the grill itself is out in the open, away from the house, deck, tree branches or anything else that can catch fire. Now go out and have a good time. And remember to thank John Adams and the rest of those Declaration of Independence guys for getting us here.

I dont remember ever saying this as a teen, but Im sure there must have been some version of that saying in the air, although stress wasnt much of an issue when I was growing up. Our society, as a whole, is much more stressful (I think both real and perceived) today, and parents oen utter the same words. But while the teenage years are sometimes dicult, and may be stressful at times, they should also be lled with friends, fun and downtime. ere should be lazy days to ll up with whatever. But when I talk to my adolescent patients, most tell me quite the contrary. eyre always worried about grades, and start discussing SAT and ACT tests long before high school. Most have nearly every waking hour lled with school commitments (and crazy competitive class schedules), extra-curricular activities, homework, private lessons and part-time jobs. Many teens are getting too little sleep (do yours get the recommended 8 hours per night?), have poor nutrition, and spend too much time on the Internet. Stressed teens report diculty falling asleep (or staying asleep), which may lead to further problems with concentration and mood. I see many high school students who are convinced they have ADHD, even though theyve never had such issues before. Suddenly, say they cant focus, which may be exacerbated by lack of sleep. Trying to get them to believe what I tell them is not always easy! For example, a teen may not always see eating junk food as poor nutrition. eir brains need protein, vegetable and fruits to keep functioning at warp speed, yet skipping meals is quite common. Stress can oen be reduced by parental involvement in setting a teens daily schedule. I dont mean you should tell your teen what to do all the time. But the security that comes from knowing that breakfast will be served every day, that dinner will be a family meal, and that theres a set bedtime when the computer and phone must go dark can ease the tension in a teens life. Having parents willing to sit down and help a teenager see their way through a stressful event or provide wisdom or perspective also helps control anxiety. And try to strike a balance between not being involved but being available. Of course, thats sometimes easier said than done! Stress will always be part of life, but teenagers should not perceive that their life is lled with constant tension. ey have plenty of time for that once they become parents, right?

Since then, July 4th has been recognized as the dawn of American independence, and celebrations that included reworks and parades can be traced back to the 18th century. On July 4, 1777, the city of Philadelphia, which would become the rst capital of the United States of America, held the rst annual commemoration of American independence, and exactly one year later George Washington ordered that all of his soldiers be oered double rations of rum to commemorate the anniversary. In 1781, Massachusetts was the rst state to make July 4th an ocial state holiday, and the day was actually declared a federal holiday by the U.S. Congress in 1870. However, that declaration did not grant a paid holiday to federal employees. at benet came in 1941, which is why that year is now recognized as the rst year when the Fourth of July ocially became a federal holiday.Patriotic spirit From previous page Here are just a few things to remember when you want to create that perfect burger. e grill should be about 350 to 400 degrees F.

Page A8, 2014.4THOFJULY By Jerry Turner Celebrating Americas independence is more than baseball, hotdogs and apple pie; its a time of relaxation and enjoying the Fourth of July holiday with family and friends. While many in the workforce will enjoy the day o, those who serve and protect who will be out in full force including the St. Cloud Fire Department. St. Cloud Fire Marshall Richard Tonks said he was expecting a busy day for the department, but asked residents to use caution and common sense. My suggestion is that anyone who wants to see reworks go to one of the public displays, Tonks said. Let the professionals shoot the big, pretty ones. I would also suggest that anyone going to these events not to bring their own reworks with them. Every year we get people shooting o illegal reworks in large groups of people and thats a danger in itself. St. Clouds Fourth of July even at the lakefront attracts several thousand spectators annually. State, county and local communities have laws that prohibit certain models of reworks. Tonks suggests that individuals review the laws that pertain to individual cities and neighborhoods. Tonks also suggested that residents visit the Florida Fire Marshal website. You want to set o the right ones so you dont get in trouble and it needs to be by an adult, Tonks said. You want to make sure the area you are you lighting them o is a clear area. You dont want to be near any trees or close to any structures. Always make sure you have a garden hose or re extinguisher nearby. Tonks has been with the St. Cloud Fire Department for 13 years and has seen his share of accidents related to Fourth of July celebrations. Nationally, during June and July, more than 11,400 individuals are injured due to burns from reworks and thats only those who seek medical attention. On top of that, reworks start more than 17,000 res causing more than $32 million in damage. Burns are the number one injury with reworks, but we see injuries with eyes face and hands, Tonks said. Burns can be a lifetime process of surgeries and healing. Tonks, along with members of the St. Cloud Fire Department, will be at lakefront with medical sta and re trucks. As re marshal, he will be at lakefront before the event to inspect the reworks setup, and then following the event to explore the area for any reworks that werent ignited. He said he is hoping that residents leave the display and bang to the professionals aer all its free. Keep it safe this 4th of JulySt. Cloud Fire Marshal Ricard TonksBy Jerry Turner e 2014 Monumental July 4th celebration is Kissimmee is expected to explode from 15,000 to nearly 30,000 in attendance this year, said Vanessa Roman, assistant supervisor of events and public venues for the Kissimmee Civic Center. e event will be held in the same location in the park this year, but will continue to grow as the city works to complete the parks expansion. She attributed the growth to the parks expansion and added activities for this years show. e event kicks o at 5 p.m. at Lakefront Park and is packed full of free entertainment and activities for all ages. ere will be bands playing music from the 1970s from 5 to 6 p.m., 1980s from 6 to 7 p.m., 1990s from 8 to 9 p.m., 2000 DJ music mix from 8 to 8:45 p.m., then a marching bands Tribute to America leading to a reworks display that starts at 9:10 p.m. is celebration will also feature 40 food trucks serving a wide variety of culinary treats. We are expecting a nice crowd, nice just for the reworks, but even earlier for the food trucks, Roman said. In addition, KUA is providing free activities for children including bounce houses, free snow cones and arts and cras. Its going to be a great event, Roman said. We are excited and expecting a great experience for our residence. Roman suggested that you get there early to nd a good spot and for parking there are several options. In addition to the immediate parking spaces, you can park indoors at the Osceola County Courthouse. If you go online to www.kissmmeeparks. org, you can print a voucher for a free ride on Lynx from most of in U.S. Highway 192 stops and others to the Kissimmee Intermodal Station located next to Lakefront Park.

Saturday, June 28, 2014 NEWS-GAZETTE, Page A9 by the creeks shore were taken down, Steee Landing now includes a 2,500 squarefoot building for concessions, restrooms and operations for canoe, kayak and bike rentals as well as a new shing deck, boardwalks and a pedestrian bridge crossing the creek. Projected to open in August, Steee Landing will serve as the rental spot for residents and visitors who want to explore the Shingle Creek Paddling Trail but dont own a canoe or kayak. From there, Mindick said that less experienced paddlers can take the creek north, stopping at Shingle Creek Regional Park on Babb Landing, while more experienced paddlers can take the creek south, where it becomes much more narrow, and stop in other conservation areas along the way. Once storm and hurricane debris are removed from the creek, paddlers will be able to travel even farther south into Lake Tohopekaliga and beyond, with stops at Makinson Island, Scottys Cove Conservation Area, Goblets Cove and Twin Oaks Conservation Area. Its such an important resource for us here, for shing, for the tourism, for the people who live here. Its the lifeblood of the early pioneers and the Native Americans that lived here, and continues to be an important element. I think that everyone has that attachment to the creek in a much bigger way than just, Eh, its another place to paddle, said Mindick. e paddling trail also is expected to open in late summer, around the same time as Steee Landing. Both the Shingle Creek Regional Trail and Shingle Creek Paddling Trail have been in the countys plans since the early 1990s. Lands for these trails have been purchased through the countys Environmental Lands Conservation Program.CreekContinued from Page A-1 News-Gazette Photo/Andrew SullivanShown above, Steffee Landing now includes a 2,500 square-foot building for concessions, restrooms and operations for canoe, kayak and bike rentals. have been installed, the number of side collisions has decreased. Both Garcia and Hossain were against them, with Hossain saying that the money spent on the cameras could be spent elsewhere and Garcia saying that he has seen them create more issues than solutions since they have been installed. Candidates for seat 4 also were asked about the revitalization of U.S. Highway 192. All were in agreement on bringing mixed-use (building neighborhoods and businesses together) as a way of attracting more residents and economy to the area. Hossain also proposed building a recreational business or facility to attract more people back to the area, while Gemskie said he would focus on demolishing blighted buildings on the corridor and cleaning it up to make way for more development. Garcia said his focus is bringing more businesses that cater to residents. I will work with commissioners that are already here and bring businesses that not only just people from other countries can enjoy but the residents of Kissimmee. Because the residents of Kissimmee live here, they spend their money here. Why shouldnt we bring businesses that attract them? said Garcia. Seat 4 candidates also tackled the issue of homelessness in Kissimmee. Hossains approach on the issue would be to give the homeless more opportunities for jobs, as well as more low-income housing for them to live. Garcia said he would unite all the organizations in the area addressing homelessness and have them work together on the issue. Gemskies focus would be on how to track the issue before tackling it, while Oteros focus would be working with the commission to create a 10-year plan on how to get rid of homelessness. Voting for both Kissimmee City Commission seat 2 and 4 will be Aug. 26, and only those who live inside the city limits are eligible to vote. e city of Kissimmee also held its election lottery on June 20 to determine the order that candidates will appear on the ballot. For commission seat 2, the order is Jim Fisher, Wanda Rentas and German Taveras. For seat 4, the order is Jerry Gemskie, Khorshed Hossain, Carmelo Garcia and Art Otero.

I have experienced the same thing before and I was also curious why bass shing seems to slow down when water levels are high. I consulted some people who know a lot more about shing than I do and their explanations were both interesting and insightful. One of the most common explanations I heard makes sense. When water levels are high, the lakes, ponds and rivers expand their shorelines. All of a sudden, areas around the lake that are normally high and dry are suddenly under water. e expansion of the body of water simply gives the sh a lot more places to go to forage for food and shelter. Basically, low water concentrates the sh and high water spreads them out. e more spread out they are, the harder they are to nd and catch. I am reminded of a severe drought we had about 20 years ago when Johns Lake in Clermont practically dried up. My good friend Danny Sams, who lives on the lake, told me that he had never seen so many wading birds concentrated in one place in his life as they came to gorge on easy pickings. Essentially, the lake almost drying up resulted in a shing bonanza for birds and sherman alike. But rising levels may slow fishing for other reasons. A lot of rain will change both water temperatures and oxygen levels our lakes and ponds. ese factors will oen cause bass to move around, feed, live and spawn in dierent areas. Increased water ow also results in more natural food being available to sh. As more food gets carried in to the food chain, it gives the bass more options for dinner. When natural food is abundant and the sh are feeding, it becomes harder to entice them to strike an articial lure. How many times have you seen heavy sh feeding activity on the water, only to have cast aer cast come up empty? Fisherman should not be afraid to change their lures and presentations during high water. A lot of us have our favorite baits and lures and use them every time we go shing. But when things are slow, why not change things up? Something as simple as changing the speed of your retrieve can make a huge dierence in catching or not catching sh. Quick strikes: A t ip of the hat needs to go out to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commision as it continues its eorts to make shing regulations more uniform throughout the state. I always felt that many of the rules were confusing and that they sometimes make lawbreakers out of normally law-abiding citizens (dierent size and possession limits depending on where you are shing, bass regulations that dier by county, special equipment regulations in certain counties, etc.). Essentially they are reviewing everything in Tallahassee and trying to make the rules and regulations as consistent as possible. e state has been spending a lot of time on Lake Toho recently trying to get the hydrilla under control. Have to say it is interesting watching those harvesting machines at work. From recent articles and press releases, apparently lionsh native to African coastal waters are proliferating in the warm ocean waters of central and South Florida. Although the state is creating ways to eradicate this invasive species which competes with native sh for food you have to wonder if the cat is already out of bag. As the world gets smaller, it was just a matter of time before non-native sh and wildlife gained a foothold in Florida. Boa constrictors, pythons, monkeys, iguanas, giant poisonous toads, monitor lizards, Gambian pouch rats and now lionsh are establishing wild populations in the Sunshine State.

I was up there for a showcase, and aerward Coach Cal said that he really liked the way I played and he would keep in touch, Dotson said. I was like, Yeah, Ive heard that before. But then he called and invited me back for a team scrimmage and he was telling me do to things similar to the way (Harmony) Coach (Paul) Strauch tells me do them, and that was all right by me. It was perfect. Late in the scrimmage, Dotson said Cochran walked over to her and said, I think you should be a Lady Falcon. Dotson, a 5-10 center for the Lady Longhorns, who reached the Class 7A state tournament last season, brings a blend of athleticism and competitive re to the lineup that will make her a success in college, Strauch said. Im really excited for her. She worked so hard to get a chance. I think she will make the most of this opportunity and it is going to be a good t, he said. Dotson has played basketball since she was 7. She also tried other sports, but, basketball is her favorite, and there isnt a close second. I played volleyball, and I was pretty good at that, and I tried soball, and I was good at that, she said. But, for me, nothing tops basketball. I dont know what it is, but I just love it. Strauch said that is exactly what he saw from Ragen during her high school career. Ragen loves basketball and wants to get better. Coach Cal from Daytona State will help her along the way, and Im excited to see where she is at in two years, he said. If she continues to work as hard as she has, I think she will be playing at a fouryear school. Dotson expects to play either swing guard or small Play ball UNDER THE BOBBER The Lionsh is one of many invasive species that are proliferating in the states waterways.

Trader JoesIf you are eagerly await ing the opening of the areas rst Trader Joes Market, the wait is over. e popu lar grocery chain (there are stores in Sarasota and Gainesville) opened its rst Central Florida store Friday. It probably isnt that big a deal missing the grand opening day. Driving to Winter Park on a Friday can never be a good thing, and roads were probably more congested on North Or lando Avenue (the store is at 131 N. Orlando Ave., al most across the street from the Winter Park Village shopping center) because of the anticipated store opening. e weekend should make for a calmer shopping ex perience, but it is the areas rst Trader Joes, so a large crowd can still be antici pated. Trader Joes is a fun shop ping experience, if you have never been. e company specializes in nding private-label items, usually items you wont nd at Publix or Winn-Dixie. e store also stocks items that do not contain preser vatives or articial food colorings.

Built out of more than 250,000 LEGO bricks, guests will be able to enjoy the installation along with a new interactive area that features LEGO mini-model communities. e additions to the park emphasize the use of renewable energy, reinforcing LEGOLAND Floridas eorts on green energy education. We are excited to add both the LEGO Globe and interactive communities to Imagination Zone, giving our guests a new way to interact while learning the benets of renewable energy, said LEGOLAND Florida general manager Adrian Jones in a press release. Guests will be able to experience an entirely new interactive area within Imagination Zone, including mini communities that show the full eect of renewable energy. e LEGO Globe will also include tactile elements, with visitors able to aect the rate of rotation with solar panels located around the new model. Some fun facts about the new globe: e globe took over 600 hours to construct and stands 6 feet tall. e LEGO Globe rotates based on the amount of sunshine showing the eects of solar power. e model is also interactive, with visitors able to aect the rate of rotation with tactile solar panels.

Jason Bateman nails it dead-on, as the disagreeable, Guy Trilby, a man determined to win a national spelling bee meant for kids, thanks to a loophole, in Bad Words. Bateman, who also is making his directorial debut, stars as the foulmouthed, pretty much despicable, Trilby. Trilby is a mostly miserable guy, looking for revenge for a childhood and adulthood where life has seemingly given him one kick in the pants after another. Trilby makes his living as a proofreader, and he really, really knows words. And he discovers what he thinks is a brilliant loophole in the rules of the national spelling bee that allows him to compete with kids: All contestants must not have completed the eighth grade by a certain date. Trilby never made it past the eighth grade, so he qualifies. There is an Achilles heel in Trilbys plan though: An awkward and lonely ten-year-old competitor (Rohan Chand), who overlooks all that is horrible with Trilby and wants to be his friend. After many rebuffs to the kid, Trilby and the youngster become pals. But everything is not quite as it seems. The kid has a hidden agenda, and Trilby has a motive to win the spelling bee, something that has driven him to this moment, for years. Bad Words is funny when it needs to be, and it often is, but it also has softer underbelly, that allows a nice balance of sentimentality as well. For much of the film, Trilby proves to be a far worse character than the obsessive/compulsive Jack Nicholson in As Good as it Gets, but he too proves See Film, page B-2 Peter CovinoFilm CriticSubmitted photoThe new 6-foot LEGO Globe is make out 250,000 LEGO bricks and rotates based on the amount of sunshine it receives, showing the effects of solar power.

Much less successful is Walk of Shame, another new release from Universal. Elizabeth Banks stars as a successful Los Angeles news anchorwoman about to get a really big break, when a onenight drunken adventure leaves her stranded on the streets of downtown L.A., with everyone convinced she is a prostitute. Can she make it back to the station before the big job opportunity disappears, or will this just end her career altogether? Its a one-joke scenario, much like e Hangover, but the unlike the original Hangover lm (and not the sequels), the jokes fall at. ere are plenty of jokes as beautiful Meghan Miles (Banks) becomes involved with the police, crack dealers and more as she makes the rounds, pouring out of a tight yellow dress, stranded and without money. e jokes, just arent very funny, and neither is this movie. e lm also stars James Marsden as the new boyfriend, actually the one she just met on the drunken night, and the endless day that follows. e Blu-ray edition includes an UltraViolet copy for viewing on portable devices and more. Back on a high note, but one with a touch of sadness, Universal has also released the h, and nal season of Warehouse 13, one of the best science-ction series on TV. And it goes out with a bang (the nal episode is a great send-o). e complete series also is available on DVD. If you have someone missed that well-written show, it is never too late to get on board. e premise is both clever and simple: Warehouse 13 is one of those secret quasigovernment places. In this case it is the home to strange and sometimes magical artifacts (like Lewis Carrolls looking glass, which contains an evil entity called Alice that can possess other peoples minds. And the warehouse is full of thousands of such artifacts. Each week agents Pete Lattimer and Myka Bering and the rest of the team, embark on a new adventure recovering yet another artifact usually causing havoc and mayhem. I am not sure if this is really the end of the series or if could reemerge, since this is Warehouse 13 and 12 similar warehouses have preceded it throughout history.

Podcast with Jack Kenny, Eddie McClintock, Ryan Cartwright, and Tom Lieber. By Peter Covino A&E Editor Bruce Springsteen His book written by a fan and for all the fans of Bruce Springsteen. But author Jim Beviglia has created so much more than a list in this collection. It is a well-researched, labor of love. If you have ever seen Springsteen perform live in concert, those musical memories will all come rushing back as your turn the pages of Counting Down, published by Rowman & Littleeld. Likewise, longtime Springsteen fans will immediately recall the rst time the needle hit the vinyl playing his debut album, Greetings from Asbury Park, reading through this detailed list. Each song in the list tells a story. And this is a list in every sense of the word. I really dont care that Beviglia has the quintessential Springsteen song Born to Run No. 1 on the list and e E Street Shue at No. 100. What really matters is all of the background information that is included with each song on the list. It is just one of those books meant to thumb through. It makes no dierence whether you are at No. 53 Johnny 99, or No. 30, My City of Ruins. ere is a lot to be learned here. Diehard Springsteen fans will rejoice, while it is an entertaining educational experience for all the rest. Take for example, the just mentioned My City of Ruins (from e Rising, 2002). e album and song was released in the months following the 9/11 attacks, and Springsteen opened America: A Tribute to Heroes, the telethon held just ten days aer the attack on the United States. e song appears to be a perfect statement, but it was, in fact, written months earlier, and performed live as early as December 2000, in honor of his former hometown of Asbury Park, N.J. If you remember all the controversy that occurred back in 1984, when Born in the U.S.A (No. 9) was a hit and Ronald Reagan tried using it in his reelection campaign and Springsteen rebued with extreme prejudice, as Beviglia notes. You have to wonder just what it was Reagans campaign people were listening to. is is an anthem, as Beviglia said, but it is more about broken promises than saluting the ag. With so many songs to choose from, it is really hard to single out just a few for this review, so Beviglias task of picking 100 songs and then ranking them, must have been truly Herculean. It certainly is interesting that both Beviglias No. 1 and No. 2 songs are both from the 1975 Born to Run album, with Jungleland coming in at No. 2. And it is hard to argue with that selection, because as Beviglia says, the song is truly epic with all of those characters (the barefoot girl, the Magic Rat) in a rock and roll fantasy. If 100 songs is not enough, Beviglia also lists the next 100 songs as well, as a sort of bonus, but they are placed without any comment.
