By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Two white buckets overowing with Kit-Kat bars acted as sweet symbolism at a Valencia groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday. The Kit-Kats, perched on the plow of a bulldozer, were a nod to the construction of two new buildings on Valencias Osceola County campus Careers in Industry and Technology (CIT) building and the Center for Accelerated Technology (CAT). But the buildings will contribute much more than catchy acronyms. They will house new, short-term training programs aimed at boosting employee wages for in-demand jobs. Not all jobs require a bachelors degree. Not all jobs even require an associates degree, said Kathleen Plinske, president of Valencias Poinciana, Lake Nona and Osceola campuses. But essentially all new jobs require some education beyond high school. According to a recent Georgetown University study, 11.6 million U.S. jobs have been created since 2009. Yet, only 80,000 of those jobs went to individuals with only a high school diploma. e idea behind Valencias new short-term training programs is to teach blue-collar workers desirable job skills that will translate into higher wages and a better quality of life for residents. Sandy Shugart, president and CEO of Valencia, said the colleges goal is to train 5,000 people each year through these accelerate six-week to six-month programs. e notion there is that over a ve-year period, 25,000 families will By Charlie Reed For the News-Gazette NeoCity Academy wont have books or desks or even classrooms. Tests wont be given by teachers so much as presented by students. e new high-tech STEM high school is eschewing traditional teaching methods and instead is creating a whole new approach to learning. We consider ourselves disruptors of the status quo and were proud of that, NeoCity Academy Principal Michael Meechin said. Our school isnt based on the comprehensive model were all used to. Weve redesigned it from the ground up. Its inquiry-driven and project-based, said Meechin, the former principal at Poinciana High School. e idea that a teacher has a classroom you go to every day does not exist at NeoCity. The magnet STEM school (short for science, technology, engineering and mathematics) opens this fall with one class of about 110 incoming freshmen at a temporary campus at Gateway High School. But when the permanent campus opens at Osceola Countys technology park NeoCity in 2019, the physical innovations will be on full display. Glass interior walls will bisect much of the three-story, 45,000-square foot building. By Rachel Christian Staff Writer The history of Osceola County was shaped by cowboys, frontier tycoons, and of course, a man named Walt Disney. But the story of this area is still evolving, and ocials at the Osceola County Welcome Center and History Museum wanted to reect the diversity of those changes. On Wednesday night, the Historical Society hosted Words of Pride: Living My History, a collection of six memoir-style videos featuring distinguished members of the Hispanic community. Capturing the recollections of older generations for archive purposes is common practice at many history museums across the country. In Osceola County, the historical society began collecting the oral histories of its residents on cassette tape in the 1980s. The preservation society has worked to digitalis those first-person accounts in recent years, but Historical Society President Donna Hart said the group hadnt recorded any new stories for a while. We realized we were missing a demographic from our community, Hart said. We wanted to make sure everyone was represented. Six local Hispanic gures were chosen to end the oral history hiatus and share their story. Those gures include two county commissioners, Viviana Foster youth in Osceola spotlighted.Residents are invited to participate in Foster Youth Connection Month.Page 11.New rapid training programs coming to Valencia Re-writing history: Museum debuts Words of PrideTaking cues from tech industry, NeoCity Academy bucks normal school modelsStaring at the starNEWS-GAZETTE PHOTO/MARTIN MADDOCK Eric Hoin lets Sebastian Garzon and his mother, Marta, get a close look at the sun during the Caribbean Fusion festival held on Sunday at Kissimmees Lakefront Park.

Page 2 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, April 28, 2018 A female panther and her two kittens are back in the wild today, after spending months in captivity. On April 10, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) panther team released the panther family on the Picayune Strand State Forest in Collier County. This is the first time the FWC has rescued, rehabilitated and released a family group of panthers. FWC biologists rescued the adult female panther, known as FP224, in December 2017 after she was struck by a vehicle in Naples. They took her to the Animal Specialty Hospital of Florida in Naples where veterinarians determined she had a broken hind leg. Following a successful surgery to repair the fracture, the FWC panther veterinarian took the panther to White Oak Conservation Foundation for rehabilitation. In June, FP224 produced a litter of one female and two male kittens, and biologists suspected these kittens were near where their mother was injured. They set up cameras to locate the young panthers, and two of the kittens were photographed and captured immediately thereafter. Unfortunately, biologists were not able to capture the third kitten. Biologists brought the two male kittens to White Oak Conservation Foundation. They were not immediately returned to their mother so that her leg had time to heal. Last month, the family was reunited in a 1-acre pen to maintain the family bond. Recently, veterinarians determined that all three felines were healthy and ready for release. Typically, orphaned kittens still dependent on their mothers need to be kept in captivity until they can survive on their own, said Darrell Land, FWC panther team leader. However in this case, the mother can continue to raise her kittens, teaching them the required survival and social skills they would not receive in captivity. FP224 is not new to the rescue and rehabilitation efforts of the FWC and partners. In 2013, she was struck by a vehicle and had to be rescued. In the years between the two accidents she has produced three litters of kittens, successfully contributing to the Florida panther population.

AGRICULTURAL BRIEFS Florida Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam released the following statement after the U.S. Department of Agriculture recently released its monthly citrus crop forecast for the 2017-18 season: Floridas citrus growers took a direct hit from Hurricane Irma and suffered unprecedented damage, which todays forecast clearly shows, he said. Were encouraged by the USDAs recent announcement that disaster relief is forthcoming, and Ill continue to work with the USDA, Governor Scott, our congressional delegation and industry representatives to make sure the disaster relief process is implemented in a way that will help Floridas growers and producers get back on their feet. The USDAs forecast of 45 million boxes of oranges for the 2017-18 season is unchanged from Februarys estimate and down 9 million boxes from the 54 million boxes predicted at the start of the season. The forecast represents a decline of more than 80 percent since the peak of citrus production at 244 million boxes during the 1997-98 season. In the wake of Hurricane Irma, Putnam announced that Florida citrus sustained more than $760 million in damages. In the weeks following Hurricane Irma, Putnam joined Gov. Rick Scott in Washington D.C to discuss the agricultural damage and to request federal assistance with Floridas Congressional Delegation. In February, the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives passed a spending bill that included more than $2.3 billion for agricultural assistance. UF researchers awarded USDA grants to advance livestock production Two researchers with the University of Florida Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences are one step closer to preventing flu in pigs and helping dairy producers get more milk for their buck, thanks to several grants from the U.S. Department of Agriculture. John Driver and Tim Hackmann, both assistant professors in the department of animal sciences, were awarded close to $700,000 in total from the USDAs National Institute of Food and Agriculture. Snook will close to all harvest in Gulf state, federal and inland waters, including all of Monroe County and Everglades National Park, starting May 1. Seasonal harvest closures conserve Floridas valuable snook populations and help sustain and improve the fishery for the future. Snook is open to harvest in Atlantic state, federal and inland waters, including Lake Okeechobee and the Kissimmee River, through May 31, closing June 1. Both the Atlantic and Gulf will reopen for recreational snook harvest Sept. 1. Snook are one of the many reasons Florida is the Fishing Capital of the World. While snook may be caught and released during the closed season, the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) encourages anglers to handle their catch carefully to help the fish survive upon release. Proper handling methods can help ensure the species abundance for anglers today and generations to come. To learn more about fish handling, visit MyFWC. com/Fishing and click on Saltwater Fishing, Recreational Regulations and Fish Handling. Learn more about recreational fishing at MyFWC.com/ Fishing by clicking on Saltwater Fishing and Recreational Regulations. Its nesting season for Floridas waterbirds, and the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) and Audubon Florida are reminding beachgoers and boaters to give these birds and their young space to help keep them safe. This is a critical time of year for nesting birds and their young, said Craig Faulhaber, avian conservation coordinator for the FWC. By taking a few simple steps, people can enjoy a day at the beach or on the water without disturbing nesting birds and their chicks, which increases the birds chances of survival. Shorebirds and seabirds build shallow nests out of sand and shells on beaches in spring and summer, and eggs and chicks are difficult to see. Wading birds, such as herons and egrets, as well as pelicans, are also nesting now on islands around the state. Both types of birds can be easily disturbed if people approach too closely. Such disturbance can cause birds to abandon their nesting sites, exposing eggs and chicks to predators, sun exposure and other harm. UF veterinarians share health research with poultry farmers in Syria at conferenceThe conflict in Syria has caused more than $16 billion in crop and livestock losses and destroyed farming assets, according to a 2017 report from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization. Since 2011, household livestock ownership in the war-torn nation has plummeted, down by 47 percent for poultry, the report states. Against that backdrop, in an area deemed not safe enough for University of Florida faculty to travel to at this time, attendees of the Fifth International Poultry Conference at Hama University in Syria this week will nonetheless benefit from the expertise of UF veterinarians who found a way to share their research. Gary Butcher and Jorge Hernandez, faculty members in the UF College of Veterinary Medicine with expertise in poultry medicine and epidemiology, respectively, were invited by conference organizers to exchange information with local scientists, policymakers and producers about diseases in poultry that are of economic and public health importance. I n his talk, Butcher discussed how other changes in antibiotics, vaccines, testing methods and broilers themselves have led the poultry industry to where it is today in combating the increased threat of mycoplasma infection. He also pointed out the proliferation of antibiotics and vaccines to control the spread of the disease has actually led to increased bacterial resistance. By Gabriela Murza As you may have heard in the news recently, a massive nationwide egg recall was issued for nine states along the East Coast because of potential salmonella contamination. No doubt, you may be wondering if your eggs are included on the list, as is, how it can get into an egg in the first place, the products that are being recalled, and how to prevent and treat a foodborne illness. Salmonella braenderup is a strain of salmonella that can affect poultry, eggs, and dairy products. It is found in the intestines and feces of infected humans and animals, including chickens. The chickens can pass on the bacteria to the egg before the shell develops, or after its laid if the egg is exposed to feces of the infected animal. Cleaning and inspection practices help prevent or decrease the potential for contamination. Animals are frequently tested for salmonella, and treated accordingly. In the manufacturing process, eggs are tested as well and taken out of the line so they dont get mixed with healthy eggs. An infected chicken will not always lay infected eggs! It will lay normal eggs with a few being contaminated. Therefore, the batches in the recall are not all contaminated. However, its not possible to know which eggs are contaminated, so to be extra cautious, the recall is for any eggs that come from a particular location. There is no evidence that organic, free-range, naturally raised or fed chickens are any healthier or safer from contamination than conventionally raised chickens. The recall comes from Rose Acre Farms with eggs labeled under brands that include Coburn Farms, Country Daybreak, Food Lion store brand, Crystal Farms, Great Value, and Sunshine Farms. Stores and some restaurants in Colorado, Florida, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia may be carrying the affected brands. The complete list can be found on the U.S. Food and Drug Administration website.You can also check your egg carton for plant number P-1065 and Julian date range of 011-102. If you ate any of the eggs, look for symptoms that include fever, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Symptoms appear 12-72 hours after eating the contaminated product. Most people will experience the symptoms for a few days, but their body will fight it. Those at most risk are the elderly, young children, and those with a compromised immune system due to illness or medication. To prevent possible illness at any time, cook eggs thoroughly, and wash hands before and after handling food and after using the restroom. The best treatment includes washing your hands before and after handling food and after using the restroom, to minimize passing it on to others. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, and eat foods that wont irritate your stomach like plain toast, bananas, and other mild non-spicy foods.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, April 28, 2018 Is widening of John Young Parkway from Portage to Vine Street in Kissimmee ever going to be completed? ats a question we believe has been on the minds of every motorist that has had to drive the 1.37-mile stretch of road. Its a construction project that never seems to end. Motorists were told the road-widening project would wrap up by January 2018. en the date was later pushed to May, and now the Florida Department of Transportation says the vague time frame of fall 2018. Is FDOT sure this time? We hope so. Because the drive and the excuses are starting to get old. Roughly 37,000 motorists travel the four-lane roadway daily, according to FDOT trac counts. Its turned into a rough, ugly road lined with barricades and orange cones. Some citizens have reached out to the News-Gazette for answers. So we asked the FDOT in a recent article. Steve Olsen, public information director for FDOTs East Central Florida district, said three factors have contributed to delays. Bad weather added 29 days to the project timeline, and holiday road closures added 47 days and multiple conicts with existing utilities in the ground tacked on an additional 137 days. Well, what constitutes as bad weather? We understand it can be dangerous working in a thunderstorm. But is just simple rain under that umbrella? Forty-seven days for holiday road closures? How many holiday parades or events does Osceola County really have? And with the utilities factor, sewer lines beneath Mabbette Street date back to the 1930s, and before work began on John Young Parkway, Toho Water Authority determined that the lines needed to be replaced at the same time. We just think that was just poor planning that should have been ironed out before starting the Parkway project. Some drivers have complained that they just dont see any work going on. Olsen said much of the work being done is occurring at night and underground, which may be why many drivers oen say they never see work taking place when they drive by. Well, that may be, but drivers are getting frustrated and angry trying to navigate the section of road, either trying to get to and from work or just reach a destination. And unfortunately frustrated drivers stuck in traffic can sometimes lead to worse situations, such as road rage. We cant point a nger at Kissimmee or Osceola County government ocials. ey have no control over the construction work. is is simply a state issue. So we wonder, when the fall rolls around, are we going to have a completed widening project or more excuses? Only time will tell.

Saturday, April 28, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 5 There are certain events throughout our lives that leave indelible marks. My parents could tell me exactly what they were doing when President John F. Kennedy was shot. Others knew what they were doing when the Space Shuttle Challenger blew up or even when it was announced that Elvis Presley had died. For my generation, I will always remember what I was doing and where I was when I rst heard of the September 11, 2001, terror attacks at the World Trade Center, Pentagon and Shanksville, Pa. I even remember that I received phone calls from family, friends and even my childrens school teachers to see what they should do, if anything. It was an unusual day to say the least. It was a Tuesday and I had training that day to renew my CPR certication. I didnt know what was going on in the world, but a lot of people thought all police must talk and know everything because they continuously called. We were all called in early so we could complete the CPR training early and then receive security assignments for the remainder of the day. Some of us were assigned to secure critical infrastructure like Kissimmee Utility Authority and Toho Water Authority plants. Some were stationed at the Amtrak train station and still others protected the hospitals. But what I am sure most people would not be aware of was the squad of ocers assigned to patrol and protect places of worship, specically, the mosque on Central Avenue as well as the Sikh Temple on Hoagland Boulevard. Why would we do that? We wanted to stop people from retaliating against dierent places of worship from their own because of the actions of those 19 hijackers. For many people, the shock of the attacks never really went away and in the aftermath of the attacks, there were many people who just wanted to add to the hysteria. I had recently been promoted to sergeant in late August. One of my rst days as a supervisor without another sergeant constantly checking on what I was doing was September 12, 2001. That was no easy task. In the rst four hours of that Wednesday, we had three bomb threats and a suspicious package. People were still calling and asking me and others at the police department what they should do. ere was an eerie silence as no planes were heard overhead getting ready to land at the Orlando International Airport and there was no noise coming from any of the flight schools at the Kissimmee Gateway Airport. There was a run on bread, milk and other essential items at the store as people were frightened and braced for the worst. Would there be other attacks? at was the question. The police telephone lines lit up with tips of who was and wasnt a terrorist. People even called the department to ask if it was true that Nostradamus had predicted this attack. I have never gured out how why someone would think we would have known that answer. While it was an out of control kind of day we still had a chance to laugh a little. Early in the morning ocers responded to 2407 W. Vine St. to what is now the Staymore hotel, in reference to a suspicious package. ere was a box with writing that said, Open and Die on it. We secured the area, re-routed trac o West Vine Street, and patiently waited for the Bomb Squad to arrive. We used the Orange County Sheriffs Office for their services and Im positive those guys were being run ragged. So, how is this funny enough to cause us all a little laugh? Let me continue. The bomb squad arrived and did what they do best: render the package safe. When the package was destroyed, we found that it had been chock full of pens, pencils, crayons and other school supplies and they were now all over the parking lot. Obviously, it was a childs school box. The funny part was that right after the package had been destroyed, a male pulled up to the scene and said he was looking for his sons pencil box and that his son had written a message on it to keep his brother from taking any of the supplies. When we pointed to the pencils and pens all over the parking lot of the hotel, we all busted out laughing! This was a moment of levity for all of us working. I am sure the people stuck in the traffic jam that was caused by closing West Vine Street werent happy, but we laughed and decompressed, if only for a few minutes. Events that occurred over 1,000 miles away from here had directly impacted Kissimmee. It was a scary time and none of us knew what would happen to the country or to our community. The world had truly stopped spinning. I am very thankful that the worst of it for us was that childs pencil box with the ominous warning to his brother. It was just a little humor through a horrible event. The day the world stopped spinning: part oneREMEMBERING KISSIMMEE JOHN LEWISFormer deputy police chief VALENCIAContinued from Page 1 be delivered from hand-tomouth work to a sustainable living wage, Shugart said. And that changes everything. Construction on the CAT building is set to wrap up in just nine months. Once complete, the facility will be home base for training programs like construction, transportation logistics and clinical medical assisting. It will also oer language courses such as intensive English and conversational Spanish. The much larger CIT building will be complete about a year later, and include classrooms for both training and associate degree programs like engineering technology and hospitality management. e two facilities will add a combined 50,700 square feet of instructional space to the Osceola County campus. Local and state leaders championed CIT and CAT as a gateway opportunity for low-income Osceola County residents. This is awesome, Im so ecstatic about this whole system, said State Rep. John Cortes, D-Kissimmee. Were going to keep working to make this a better community, so that everyone can have a job.

Osceolas growth focus of State of the County By Rachel Christian Staff Writer Osceola Countys rapid growth took center stage on April 19 at the sixth annual State of the County Address. From new massive developments, such as Magic Place and Sunbridge to the populations impact on roads and transportation, the topic of growth management dominated discussion by county ocials. County Commission Chairman Fred Hawkins Jr. said there is a denite disconnect between what residents want and what is actually going on in the community. Some people want things to stay the same way they are, but at the same time they want more, he said. Whether its a big box store chain or a chain restaurant, those things only come with more rooops. From the countys perspective, its about compromise.See State Page 6.

Page 6 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, April 28, 2018 STATEContinued from Page 5 According to recently released U.S. Census Bureau estimates, Osceola County has grown an estimated 25.25 percent since 2010, making it Floridas secondfastest growing county. Local government enacted a six-month building moratorium in November to slow residential development while county ocials determined the best way to handle Osceolas fastpaced growth. Hawkins said the commission and sta have been working hard to review building codes and standards since then, including standardized street design, parking lots, driveways and home lot sizes. Although standardized lot sizes have been a hot button issue for many residents living in rural areas, the chairman said it isnt an issue. Its the quality of the product thats built on that lot, Hawkins said. ings like adding more quality and refined materials to enhance architectural style, so there are not hundreds of identical houses in neighborhoods. e moratorium didnt stop all growth however, and Hawkins discussed the impact of massive development projects such as Sunbridge and Tohoqua during his address. Sunbridge is set to become one of Central Floridas biggest developments, and cover some 37 square miles across Orange and Osceola County. A road connecting Sunbridge with Osceola has sparked controversy for over a year because the proposed route would go through a large nature reserve known as Split Oak. Hawkins didnt address the debated toll road, but said ocials continue to meet regularly with representatives from Tavistock, the developer of Sunbridge and Lake Nona. He noted that such communities will bring quality and diversity to our housing stock. Planning has been focused on the signicant infrastructure work to create a project of this scale, he said. A project of this magnitude will continue to be a priority for the county. Commissioner Brandon Arrington touched on how transportation in Osceola County has evolved over the years. ere was no Osceola Parkway, so if you wanted to get to Disney or anywhere else out west, you had to take 192, which was a twolane road and all there was a Holiday Inn and the big orange, he said. Arrington added that building and improving new roads will continue to be a vital part of Osceola Countys future. This board is doing everything it can to make sure people are getting where they need to be in a timely manner, Arrington said. Hawkins ACADEMYContinued from Page 1 Small and large commonarea spaces will replace traditional classrooms to foster the collaborative learning space. Science, design and fabrication laboratories will also be part of the small campus, Meechin said. e school is essentially wrapped in two essential concepts; that learning can happen anywhere and that you can see learning happening, he said. The school is being designed to look and feel like the unique work environments at companies like Apple, Amazon and BRIDG, the public-private technology consortium at the center of the countys $120 million-plus investment in NeoCity. The county also invested $15 million in NeoCity Academy along with donating the 5-acre parcel for the school. The high school is among the rst components of the new technology park that ocials in Osceola say will shi the economic base of the county, now anchored by tourism and agriculture. e students will help create a local talent pipeline to ll the thousands of highwage, high-skilled jobs that NeoCity is expected to produce. The highly selective school not only will be an opportunity for its students, but it will also serve as a draw for individuals and companies looking to relocate to Osceola to work at NeoCity, said School Board Member Clarence Thacker, who is also the business director for NeoCity. I do see us being the East Coast Silicon Valley, acker said. NeoCity Academy has secured commitments from engineering and software development rms and industry experts to help mentor students and participate in peer-reviewed projects. Much of the school work and assignments at NeoCity will revolve around solving real-world problems, with students and teachers using a variety of platforms and content. e grading system will be traditional A-F scale, although it will rely on internal standards, unlike other schools. Were going to be a place where failure is encouraged because that results in growth and innovation, which goes against traditional methods, Meechin said. Because when you look at companies like Apple, Amazon and SpaceX they dont move innovative practices forward without failure. Our school is built on that same concept. And forget traditional electives, such as drama and TV production. NeoCity electives will include engineering, cybersecurity, biodesign and healthcare robotics. And the same goes for sports. Instead of Friday night football games well have live feeds of SpaceX launches and other events like that, Meechin said. Language and physical education requirements will be completed online, which other high schools also oer. NeoCity Academy will also oer dual-enrollment courses with the University of Central Florida a partner with the school and the University of Florida. While the School Board approved the school and supports its novel concepts, we have some folks still unsure about this model, Meechin said. Were excited to show people what this learning will do. Our hope is that well have kids with fully funded Kickstarter projects by the time theyre in college. ese kids want to cure cancer and are driven by high-arching goals with global impact, Meechin noted. Our kids are operating with the goal of changing the world, she said. There are a few more spots available for the 2018-19 school year at NeoCity Academy.

Ralph Herrera and Maria Grulich. Grulich, who works as the director of global business at Florida Realtors in Orlando, said she was honored to be selected, but also nervous about recording the story of her Spanish-Cuban heritage to preserve for future generations. I was proud of Osceola County for doing this... because it shows they care about inclusion, said Grulich, the former international development director for Experience Kissimmee.. We are part of that history. Were making history now. Wednesday night saw another inclusive addition to the Welcome Center the first self-guided walking tour offered in Spanish. Hart said its something the Historical Society has wanted to do for years, but didnt have the resources to do so until recently. We have a very small staff, a very small budget, so weve slowly worked to translate materials into Spanish, the director said. Ocials at the Welcome Center said they plan to continue enhancing content at the museum by translating material at Pioneer Village and eventually adding audio tours in Spanish at both locations. Hart said the historical society also plans to add oral histories from a mix of local residents moving forward. Videos from Words of Pride: Living My History can be found on YouTube and the Osceola County Historical Society website.

Saturday, April 28, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor For the third year in a row, Harmony and St. Cloud advanced to their district ag football championships. St. Cloud hosted Lake Nona Thursday for the District 2A-5 title (see www. aroundosceola.com for updates). Harmony, playing at East River in the A-10 championship for its third title in a row and ninth in 12 years, couldnt get the big play needed on oense and fell to Orlando Jones, 7-0. Jones scored in the rst half, ending a long drive on a short touchdown pass from Kamiya Webb to Porsha Jones. e Longhorns defense kept rising to the occasion in the second half, as Jenna Butcofski and Taitiyana Taylor had interceptions, and Bryn Hudson kept a fourth-quarter drive alive with a big fourth-down reception from Baylee Richards, but all night Harmony seemed one play short of getting an equalizing score. Defensively the girls did a great job, really got the job done, Coach Paul Strauch said. Oensively we struggled, and thats on me, usually were better on oense. But Im proud of the eort, we had our backs against the walls many times and the girls bowed up and gave us a chance to win until the very end. Harmony ended the season 11-1. We won 11 games and were heartbroken, but thats the way it should be, said Strauch, who is used to coaching the Longhorns into the regional and state playoff levels into May. Weve set a standard for Harmony ag football. The Bulldogs and Longhorns seminal games on Tuesday. St. Cloud (12-1) spotted Cypress Creek an early touchdown after an interception on the first play of the game, but then turned back into themselves in a 26-6 win in District 2A5. Quarterback Elly Schmidt threw four touchdown passes, all in the rst half, and completed 10 passes in a row at one stretch to push St. Cloud to the win. I was more nervous at the start about coming back from a loss (6-0 to Harmony last ursday that won the Longhorns the OBC title) than the kids were, St. Cloud Coach Codie Nieder said. Well be all right, were hoping to get our third district championship in a row. e win put St. Cloud in Thursdays championship against Lake Nona, who defeated Osceola, 14-0, in Tuesdays earlier game. Cypress Creek took the early 6-0 lead on St. Cloud, but from that moment Tuesdays game was all Bulldogs. Schmidt completed all six of her passes on the next drive, including a 38-yard strike to Andrea Hernandez that set up a 2-yard scoring strike to Ciera Enberg, who also caught the extra-point conversion to make it 7-6. Kayla Blackwood ended the Bears next drive with an interception that set up another 2-yard TD pass from Schmidt to Enberg. e games next two plays were an interception by Jada Nieves and a 19-yard touchdown catch by Hernandez. The Bulldogs made it 26-6 just before halftime when Hernandez got open on an outside crossing route and Schmidt hit her for a 58-yaerd touchdown strike. It was a good win, but it could have been better, Schmidt said.

See Flag, Page 9.Harmony loses bid to repeat A-10 title By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Come December, youll get to let your hair down at the Silver Spurs Arena at an Orlando SeaWolves game. The Major Arena Soccer Leagues name, logo and colors were revealed Wednesday at the Heritage Club, exactly one month to the day that team and Osceola Heritage Park officials announced the indoor soccer team would be coming to Osceola County for the MASLs 2018-19 season. General Manager Chris Kokalis said the unique moniker was chosen out of 2,800 submissions made through a Name the Team promotion. Of four people who chose the name, Luke Kamp of St. Louis (another city with a MASL franchise) won two free season tickets. A sea wolf is a mythical creature according to the team, Merriam-Webster defines it as a fabulous sea beast. A wolffish, the closest actual creature to the description, is a strong-jawed sh native to the cold waters of the North Atlantic Ocean. A sea wolf can sustain itself on land, but can kick it with the gators in the water, Kokalis said. Its mark is perseverance, which is what well be looking for in a team and its players. Keith Flynn of Flynnagain Productions, a mainstay in the sports logo design landscape, designed the logo. The colors are golden, aqua, and London blue, a nod to Jack Londons novel e Sea-Wolf.See SeaWolves, Page 8.

By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Like their softballplaying sisters, the countys baseball teams will play to secure regional playo brackets in next weekends district tournaments. They wont have the luxury of home-field advantage as the eight teams involved all head out of Osceola County to play. Gateway and Osceola travel to Haines City for the 9A-5 event; Celebration, Liberty and St. Cloud go to Windermere; Harmony is off to Viera in 7A-6; Poinciana drives down to Auburndale in 6A-10; and City of Life goes north to Geneva in 2A-4. In 9A-5, Gateway and Osceola are the top two seeds, meaning each can clinch a regional spot with one win on Tuesday. e Panthers, 16-5 aer a 12-2 loss to Cypress Creek on Tuesday, will play Davenport Ridge at 4 p.m. Panthers Coach Jim Moran said his team will go into next week with a bit of swagger. We hit the ball well last week, he said, noting the team outscored four opponents 54-4. Were ne. Its a young club that just goes out and plays. Were in good shape, but the kids know that any team can do something this time of year so we want to just go play the right way. Osceola, 17-6 after a 7-4 loss to Cypress Creek Wednesday to close the regular season, had one of the biggest innings in school history during Tuesdays 16-2 Senior Night win over Oak Ridge 15 runs on three singles, ve doubles and four home runs, including Frank Santaniellos grand slam, in the fourth inning. We had four home runs going into the game this year. Ive never seen anything like it, OHS Coach Scott Birchler said. Markeys Tavares homered for OHS on Wednesday. The Kowboys will play host Haines City on Tuesday at 7. They lost 7-2 to the Hornets in their district finale last week, causing pause. We realized their pitching could get us off balance, Birchler said. Maybe its a blessing, wed won nine in a row going into it and we hope it makes the kids refocus. We missed the regional playos the last two years (thanks to seminal matchups against Gateway) and so the kids are hungry to get back, thats for sure. e championship game is ursday at 7. In 8A-10, St. Cloud and Celebration are the No. 2 and 3 seeds and will meet on Tuesday. East River and Liberty meet in the No. 4/5 matchup on Monday, and the winner will face No. 1 seed Windermere on Wednesday. e championship game is on Friday. Windermere Highs eld has no lights; expect those games to begin at 4 or 4:30 p.m. St. Cloud Coach Bo ODell said his 14-7 Bulldogs, who closed the regular season with big wins over Oak Ridge, Harmony and Poinciana, go into next week with condence in knowing theyve beaten every team in the district at least once. We are nishing up the year with a better record than last year but not as good as we had hoped for, he said. We had some bumps along the way where errors and not getting the timely hit really hurt us. If we avoid the little mistakes and execute when we need to, we have a great shot at stringing something together and making it somewhere. at is the beautiful thing about this game, if you are playing good baseball you feel like you can beat anyone. In the 7A-6 tournament at Viera, Harmony is the No. 4 seed and will take on No. 5 Heritage on Monday at 7 p.m. e winner will take on top-seeded Melbourne on Tuesday at 4. The championship is ursday at 7. The name was chosen over a host of other suggestions, such as the Renegades, Oranges, Cobras, Sleeping Tigers, Lasers, Suns, Majestics and Roar. e team chose to use Orlando in its name over a Kissimmee or Osceola County. In a league that stretches to California, Washington and into the Mid-Atlantic, Kokalis said Orlando would have better name recognition countrywide while taking advantage of a regional appeal into populated Orange and Seminole counties and tapping into the Orlando City Lions fan base during Major League Soccers oseason. We knew that was something important to the arena and commissioners, but we feel like were coming into a first-class building. Were hoping to get the word out that this isnt just a rodeo ring, he said. Its really about the brand, the venue and the experience fans will have once theyre here. Larson said OHP and its SMG venue management arm are ne with it. Well all a part of a bigger Orlando region, he said. Central Florida has been excited about bringing this team to the area. The SeaWolves join a yet-unnamed team in Toronto as the 17th and 18th members of the MASL for the 2018-19 season. They will play 12 home games from December to April at the Silver Spurs. e SeaWolves will have an immediate and local rival the Florida Tropics play in Lakelands RP Funding Center and enter their third season in the MASL. With a name and a logo, the next things will be to nd a head coach and an inaugural roster of players. Kokalis said a coach will be in place by June 1, and the SeaWolves open tryout and Player Combine will be held May 19-20 at XL Soccer World located just north of downtown Orlando. Tryouts are open to players 18 and older, and the club asks that attendees be available for both sessions. Registration fee is $75 in advance or $100 at the door and includes a t-shirt.

SPORTS BRIEFS SOLAR BEARS PHOTO/FERNANDO MEDINAOrlando Solar Bears goalie Cal Heeter has an ECHLbest .980 save percentage (149-for-152) in the playoffs thus far. By Ken Jackson Sports Editor For the rst time since coming out of hibernation in 2012, the Orlando Solar Bears have won a playo series and advanced to the second round of the ECHL postseason. Pushed by incredible play from goalie Cal Heeter and a pair of overtime game-winning goals, the Bears completed a fourgame sweep of the South Carolina Stingrays with 2-1 overtime victories last ursday and Saturday at the Amway Center. Orlando moves on to play the in-state rival Florida Everblades in the Southeast Division finals. Game 1 was Friday at the Germain Arena in Estero and Game 2 is tonight. e series shis to Orlandos Amway Center for Games 3 (ursday), 4 (Friday) and 5 (Sunday). In Game 3 against the Stingrays, Hunter Fejes broke a 1-1 tie by splitting defenders and scoring a shorthanded goal late in the rst overtime for the winner. In Game 4 it was Jean Dupuy who netted the series-clinching goal when he made his way into the slot from behind the South Carolina net and snapped the puck past Parker Milner, who was named the ECHLs Goaltender of the Year prior to the opening of the playos, to li Orlando to victory. Im just happy its over. South Carolina played us hard all series. I think we played really well, Dupuy said following his gamewinning eort. We came out strong every single game. e last two games in overtime could have gone either way. Im really happy they went our way. We denitely showed up for this series and were going to show up for the rest. Its a good stepping stone and Im just happy its over. Heeter stopped 41 of 42 shots in Game 4, and nished the series with a .980 save percentage (149 out of 152). Following the sweep, Heeter, was already focused on the division nals against Florida. Asked whether he thought the Solar Bears were at a point where they believed they were ready to nally take a playo series from the Everblades theyve lost to them twice, including last year after taking a 3-1 series lead he gave an emphatic yes. Im completely condent in our game right now so well be able to make this a good series and that well be able to pull it out against these guys, Heeter said. Well be ready to play against these guys this weekend. e Solar Bears defeated the Stingrays despite being outshot 152-96. Orlando was a perfect 18-for-18 on the penalty kill in the series. The 10 combined goals in the series was the second-fewest scored in a four-game series in ECHL postseason history.Solar Bears sweep Stingrays, claim rst ECHL playoff seriesinterception was my fault. Tuesday At East River, the Longhorns just just enough according to Strauch in a 12-0 win over the host Falcons. ey got a short touchdown catch from Bryn Hudson after quarterback Baylee Edwards hit her on a 60-yard pass play to take a 6-0 lead. It stay that score until Tai Taylor intercepted a Falcons pass and took it back for a game-sealing touchdown. Strauch said Tuesday night he was nervous about facing Jones, who the Longhorns needed a last score to defeat 19-14 during the regular season. They beat Poinciana pretty well, and we were beat up, he said. On defense were playing great, as good as were going to, and on oense were doing just enough. Winners of district championships will advance to the regional playoffs, which will begin ursday (May 3). FLAGContinued from Page 7.

Saturday, April 28, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 11 For some people, working in the landscape gives that peace of mind that cannot be found anywhere else. e landscape is a place where you can listen to birds sing, enjoy seeing and smelling the owers; overall just keeping in touch with nature. e sad truth is that there are unwelcomed biting and stinging pests living in your landscape. ere are pests such as snakes, eas, ticks, wasp, mosquito, yellow jackets, hornets and spiders. It is oen said that the only good snake is a dead snake. is statement is far from the truth, there are good snakes that will not harm you; they will try to escape from you. ere are others that will only attack if they are feeling threatened. But it is best to avoid all snakes if you are not able to properly identify them in the landscape. Although eas may not be a major issue in the landscape, they can be a nuisance for landscapers. Fleas get all their food from sucking animal blood. If eas are present in the landscape, it means that there are pets nearby. Fleas can stay in the pupal case until a host is available. Many people nd it hard to eectively control eas. To successfully control eas, treat pets, the inside of the home and the landscape where the pets visit all at the same time. In addition, ticks are sometimes found in the landscape. Tick bites can be irritating and can cause Lyme disease. If ticks are present, spray animals and the landscape; keep vegetation short and avoid over-irrigation. Equally important are the many species of wasp in the landscape. Some are social while others are solitary and tend to have a bad reputation. Likewise, yellow jackets have a bad reputation. ey will defend their nest aggressively and inict painful stings. ey are daytime hunters and live in underground social nests. How can I forget the bald face hornets and the European hornets? Bald face hornets are black and white in color, active during the daytime, and can be aggressive. On the contrary, European hornets are brown and tan in color, active at night, usually live near woods, and generally not aggressive even at their nest. Also, it is important to note that the red and black velvet ant, which is really a wingless wasp, can also inict a painful sting on landscapers. Spiders are very prevalent in Floridas landscape because of its warm weather. Not all spiders are harmful; many eat insects, which normally would become pests in the landscape. In fact, the venomous spiders to avoid are brown recluse, brown widow, and black widow. Be careful not to blindly push your hands under debris or rocks. It would be benecial to wear gloves if a spider is known to be in your work area. Finally, mosquitos can also become a nuisance in the landscape. e larvae live in standing water, adult females feed on blood, while adult males feed on nectar. By Jennifer DiDomenico A&E Editor Residents of Osceola County and all of Central Florida are invited to participate in the 13th annual Foster Youth Connection Month events, presented by Foster Youth Connection and the Caribbean Community Connection of Orlando. Next month, there will be three opportunities for the community to show its support. The first opportunity will kick o the month on May 1 at 5:30 p.m., at the flagpole at City Hall (101 Church St. in Kissimmee). Community members are welcome to join in and speak about, or simply listen to, personal experiences with foster youth. Once you get this dialogue going, once you get this communication going [in the community], I believe itll start to help people become more and more understanding, said Evangelist Rupert D. Henry of Foster Youth Connection. e second opportunity will immediately follow, at the City Commission meeting. During the meeting, Kissimmee city commissioners will announce a proclamation to recognize the month of May 2018 as Foster Youth Connection Month. Finally, Foster Youth Connection and the Caribbean Community Connection of Orlando invite local churches, businesses and organizations to select a Sunday or a day in the month of May, in observance as Foster Youth Connection Sunday or Day. Make the day special for the kids, Henry said. Use your imagination for this. For businesses, make signs or use other things to mention and give the information. You never know, a customer may walk in, hear about it, and want to know more. For churches, build it up, he added. Preachers can have the youth come up and sing a song. Or foster parents in the audience can even come up and share about being a foster parent. Henry, who believes that he was called to serve this mission of aiding foster youth, was recently recognized for his work by his employer, PepsiCo, on a national scale. He was nominated and honored as one of four other candidates, out of hundreds. Ive been called to help. Im thankful I do it, he said. But I want to thank everyone over the years. Its not just me, its a group of people who care and want to do something. If you are interested in helping the foster youth community by fostering children, volunteering your time, or donating to the cause, contact Evangelist Rupert D. Henry at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, visit www.caribecc.org.

Parking will be available for graduates and guests in UCF parking garages D and H. One of the most common if not the most common conditions I treat people for is high blood pressure. Hypertension, as its formally known, runs rampant in the United States, partly because of our nations typical diet thats high in salt, fat and our sedentary lifestyle. e good news, however, is that high blood pressure is both preventable and treatable. Patients are used to having their blood pressure checked at most doctor visits. Keeping a record over time of your BP readings is what helps your physician monitor for signs of hypertension. Doctors become concerned when they see consistent readings above recommended guidelines, which were recently lowered by the American Heart Association. And, yes, they understand that sometimes your numbers could be elevated because youre anxious about your checkup. Heres a closer look at what you need to know about high blood pressure, including whos at risk and what you can expect with treatment: 1. e warning signs are hard to see. Hypertension is known as the silent killer. Most people with high blood pressure experience no symptoms or the signs are so negligible that they go unnoticed or are blamed on something else. The American Heart Association strongly warns: If you ignore your blood pressure because you think a certain symptom or sign will alert you to the problem, you are taking a dangerous chance with your life. 2. Some people are more at risk of developing hypertension. As we age, its not uncommon to see elevations in blood pressure values. There is also a genetic component involved. So if your parents had it youre at greater risk. Also, hypertension is more prevalent and AfricanAmericans and men. 3. Lifestyle plays a huge role. Lack of physical activity, excessive weight and alcohol consumption, and high stress levels also can cause blood pressure to increase. 4. Most people dont just have hypertension; they have another condition along with it. Hypertension may at times be co-morbid with other issues such as high cholesterol, diabetes, sleep apnea and coronary artery disease. There are also medical conditions that can cause whats known as secondary hypertension, including certain kidney disorders. 5. Untreated, there are serious health threats. Uncontrolled high blood pressure can lead to increased pressure on the heart, which may result in heart enlargement that affects normal cardiac function. With compromised cardiac function, youre at increased risk for heart failure, stroke, chest pain, heart attack and other organ failure. 6. You can bring BP levels down with lifestyle changes. e rst step doctors take in most hypertension cases is to encourage patients to eat a healthier diet, including a low-salt diet, and to exercise more. Sometimes these things alone will help bring your blood pressure back to acceptable levels. 7. Many times, medications are needed. If improved diet and exercises regimens dont work or if a patient initially presents with extremely high blood pressure doctors will prescribe medication. Expect your physician to check your electrolyte levels and run blood tests before writing a prescription. Should lifestyle changes and medications not work, youll likely be referred to a specialist to check for any underlying health issues that could be contributing to your condition. Your family doctor is the front-line defense in diagnosing and treating hypertension. With regular screenings, you can take a proactive approach to keeping your levels in check.

Medication sometimes helps, but not always, and the pain just keeps coming back. My doctor checked to see if another medical problem could be causing the headaches, but she didnt find anything. She now recommends I see a pain management specialist. What can they oer other than more medication? Im missing a lot of work, and Im afraid Ill never get this under control. Answer: Chronic pain such as yours can be debilitating and, as youve seen, pain relievers arent always the solution. A specialist in pain management can assess your situation, give you alternative treatment options, and help you find ways to cope with the chronic headaches, so you can get back to living your life the way you want. As in your situation, when no underlying condition is found thats causing chronic headaches, then treatment focuses on lowering the frequency and severity of the headaches, as well as reducing the disruption they cause in your daily life. One of the best ways to identify the type of headache you have, along with examining specific headache therapies, may be to consider seeing a headache specialist such as a neurologist. e rst line of treatment for chronic pain, including headaches, is usually medication. Specic types of primary headache may respond to unique medication therapy, so it is important to have the right diagnosis. Pain-relieving medication management may also include a wide range of other potential drug therapies from over-the-counter options like nonsteroidal antiinflammatories such as ibuprofen, to neuropathic medications such as gabapentin, to strong prescription opioids such as morphine, oxycodone, hydrocodone and fentanyl. Medications may be a viable ongoing treatment for chronic pain, but their use needs to be balanced with the risk of side eects, especially if they are used long-term. Opioids in particular should only be used for severe pain that doesnt respond to other medications, and the amount of time opioids are used should be limited. Research shows little benefit with long-term use of opioid drugs, but significant risk for complications. Those complications include decreased ability to function, increased tendency for depression, hormonal dysregulation and risk of addiction, among others. ere are other choices for controlling pain beyond medication. A number of minimally invasive procedures can be used to treat pain. They include trigger-point injections, peripheral nerve blocks, image-guided spine procedures and implantable medical devices, such as spinal cord stimulators. Less-invasive procedures such as acupuncture a procedure that uses hair-thin needles inserted into areas of your skin at specic points can sometimes be useful in reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches. Learning biofeedback can be helpful, too. With this technique, you may be able to lessen headache pain by becoming more aware of and then changing your bodily responses to pain, such as muscle tension and heart rate. Some pain management strategies dont get rid of pain. Instead, they help you learn how to better cope with it. For example, a type of counseling called cognitive behavioral therapy can oen be benecial for people dealing with chronic pain. With this therapy, you examine the negative ways you may be thinking about or reacting to pain. You then learn how to reframe your thoughts and behaviors so you can better manage your life, despite the pain, and move forward in productive, healthy ways. ere is clear evidence that cognitive behavioral therapy can provide meaningful, long-term improvement of chronic pain while also improving daily functioning. Additional techniques that may help reduce pain include stress management, relaxation strategies, physical and occupational therapy, sleep therapy and lifestyle management. Pain management specialists are physicians familiar with these and other pain treatments. ey typically are members of larger teams of professionals from diverse backgrounds who work with people to manage chronic pain. Neurologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, acupuncturists, psychiatrists and other mental health specialists oen collaborate as part of the multidisciplinary pain management groups. Working with a pain management specialist, along with other members of the team, you can create a pain management plan that ts your needs, allowing you to gain control over chronic pain and return to your normal routines.

We lost her brother four years ago. She was depressed for two years, but then improved. When the family is all gone at once, I have someone come in every day to check on Nani, change the litter, and feed her. In December, we were gone for 13 days. Around day nine, she stopped eating and using her litter box. My friend couldnt find her and thought she had died. Turns out, she was just hiding. Our vet says she was stressed, presumably by being alone. He said it was a good thing we got back when we did. ere was also some inappropriate urination discovered later. What can we do to make it easier for her when we are gone the next time? Would pheromones help? Barb, Massapequa, NY Dear Barb, It can be dicult for any pet to be le alone for a few weeks, even with a pet sitter stopping by daily. Our pets often get sad when were away for any length of time. I once went on a two-week vacation and le my three cats with a pet sitter who stopped by twice daily to visit. While they had each other and about an hour of human companionship daily, my pet sitter noticed they seemed depressed aer the rst week. Since then, I have never le any of my pets at a kennel or in the home with a pet sitter for longer than a week. Shorter vacations are not always possible, so I would recommend feline pheromones plugged in throughout the home to reduce her stress. But the real issue here is loneliness, and the only solution for that is companionship. You might consider adopting another cat or better yet, asking someone to house sit for you when you all are gone. Nani will do much better if someone is at home for part of the day. Dear Cathy, My 8-year-old dog Zoe is part cattle dog and border collie. When we go for walks, she is very excited, grabbing on the leash and growling and barking. She is ne once we are about half a block in and doesnt make any noise the rest of the walk. I have tried bringing treats to distract her and looking angry at her. She was born deaf and maybe she doesnt realize how loud her barking is. Our walk is early, and I dont want to disturb the neighbors. If I dont pick up the leash and let her walk beside me, she doesnt make a sound. In the aernoon I take her to the park to catch a Frisbee. Again, she is excited, but now her sounds are high-pitched and crazy sounding. I call it the park bark. Do you have any suggestions to calm her down? Randy, Las Vegas, NV Dear Randy, Deaf dogs dont know how loud they are barking and even if they did, like most dogs, they probably wouldnt care. They arent thinking about the neighbors. But its nice youre thinking about the neighbors and trying to nd a way to calm your little yelper. Zoe barks when she is anticipating a fun activity or when she wants you to do something, like drop the leash. Once she is into the activity, her mind settles down and she focuses on the fun. Lets introduce some training. Pick up her leash for her walk. If she starts barking, put it down and walk away. When she stops barking, give her a treat, then pick up the leash again. Repeat these steps Going on vacation leaves some pets feeling sadSee Pets Page 15. Its that time of year again when gators seem to show up in the strangest places. Pools, backyards, Interstate 4, oce buildings and even front doors arent o limits to our toothy residents during our Florida springtime months. When teaching about this topic with younger kids, we sometimes refer to this time of year as alligator moving season, but in full disclosure the source of this alligator craziness is mating season. is is the time of year alligators may travel great distances to nd a boyfriend or girlfriend. Many of them seem to be trying to outdo each other by going next level with their appearances and searching for their 15 minutes of fame. e media loves springtime in Florida and help fuel our stereotype with wacky national headlines. To avoid sharing the spotlight with our infamous alligators, we recommend the following: especially near water and swampy areas. that seem to be displaced or acting strange Call the Nuisance Alligator Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (866-392-4286) for gators that need to be removed We also recommend educating yourself and your family about these amazing animals. Its no secret Wild Florida knows a thing or two about alligators. To share this knowledge and passion with visitors, Wild Florida will host its second Gator Week May 7-12 and offer free admission for everyone to its gator and wildlife park throughout the week. To many, alligators are simply fierce carnivores on the hunt, but thats not the case. Like many misunderstood creatures, myths develop based on a lack of knowledge. It is because of this that Wild Florida decided to dedicate an entire week to educating and debunking many common myths surrounding these reptiles through live demonstrations and interactive experiences.

Next, pick up your end of the leash and head for the door. If she barks, drop the leash and walk away. If she doesnt stop barking, remove the leash and start over. Repeat these steps until she walks to the door without barking. Use these same techniques for walking from the front door to the street. It will probably take about a week or so, but she will learn what you are communicating. Once she understands, train her with the disc inside the house and at the dog park using the same steps above. At the dog park, simply put the disc down or hide it in a bag until she stops barking. She will remember her leash training and will know to stop barking if she wants to see the disc again. This training requires patience, but most dogs are eager to please their owners. Let me know how she responds. Communication skills kids can learnAn ability to communicate effectively is a life skill that can serve a person well at any age. Communication is considered so essential that the Boy Scouts of America even require prospective Eagle Scouts to earn communication merit badges. Its never too early to help children become better communicators. From toddlerhood to grade school and beyond, learning how to interact with others are necessary at every stage. To develop communication takes time, but there are various techniques to help kids become better communicators. Great communication is a two-way process. Listening is often as important as speaking when communicating. Parents can help model good behavior by listening and letting children express themselves before offering their own opinions. Take turns in conversation. Rather than speaking at the same time or interrupting others, effective communicators take turns offering their thoughts. Listening to others can help shape what the other person might say. Speak regularly with one another. Initiate conversation frequently so that children become accustomed to speaking with adults and others. Chat about where youre going when running errands or discuss television plots during commercial breaks. Make conversations relevant. Allow experiences that are happening around the family to shape conversations. Encourage curiosity and introduce new themes and vocabulary. The more the child gets to experience, the more inclined he or she may be to discuss those experiences. Modify the communication methods. Some children may struggle to communicate effectively. By working with speech/language pathologists and making the most of digital and other communication aids, parents make things easier for kids who are struggling to communicate. Ask for details. e organization Understood. org advises adults to focus on recall and sequencing when speaking with children. These skills are important and can be enhanced when kids offer details. These techniques can help children ultimately develop strong comprehension and writing skills. Speak with others. Encourage children to speak to their peers, adults and educators as much as possible to establish comfort in various communication settings. Doing so will help in the shortand long-term. Communicating is an important component of school, home life and future employment. Children who learn to communicate eectively are in position to thrive in school and later in life.

TURNING CIRCLE (curb-to-curb) 39.8 ft. CURB WEIGHT 4,890 lbs. FUEL CAPACITY 18.6 gal. EPA MILEAGE RATING 16 mpg city, 22 mpg highway Copyright, Motor Matters, 2018 FOR THE LATEST NEWS WEBSITE AROUNDOSCEOLA.COM Motor Matters Americas bread-and-butter SUV the model credited with igniting the countrys love affair with the segment Ford Explorer is one of the best turnedout models in its category. The 2018-model-year Ford Explorer soldiers on confident in its competence. This is particularly evident when the Explorer is experienced in Platinum trim. Just shy of being a full-on luxury sport utility, the top-of-the-line Ford Explorer Platinum features smart cruise control, upgraded leather, aluminum and wood interior detailing, a top-flight Sony audio system, and a dual-panel sunroof. Power for Explorer Platinum is served up courtesy of a 365-horsepower 3.5-liter turbocharged V-6, which is good for 350 lb.-ft. of torque. All-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission complete the powertrain. We saw a pretty consistent 19 miles per gallon in mixed city and highway driving. Towing capacity is 5,000 pounds. Owing to its genteel nature, we werent tempted to go rock crawling in the Platinum Explorer. This Ford is FORDEXPLORERobviously geared more toward pavement than dirt, though it easily handled well-groomed trails. On the other hand, it rules on the highway. Exceptionally quiet and smooth, if youre looking for a spacious ride in which to accomplish long-distance travel, the 2018 Ford Explorer Platinum is solidly up to the task. Handling is also secure and in all frankness, Explorer tends to drive larger than it actually is. Drivers interested in experiencing more feel behind the wheel will appreciate the 2018 Ford Explorer Sport. Offering most of the same comfort and convenience equipment, Explorer Sport adds more aggressive suspension tuning, quicker steering, 20-inch wheels with low profile tires, and a tough-guy exterior treatment solidly telegraphing its intent. A more welcoming host for the outstanding twin-turbo V-6, body roll is minimized, turn-in is sharper, and grip is substantially improved without completely sacrificing ride quality. Allwheel drive is standard here too. Interior fit-and-finish on the Explorer Platinum are among the best weve ever seen in a Ford product. Quality softtouch materials abound. The look is decidedly premium. All controls feel nice to the touch and respond crisply when operated. The front seats are very comfortable especially over long distances and the passenger compartment is suitably quiet. Happily, the touch-sensitive controls of previous models were jettisoned in 2016 in favor of real buttons and dials for the audio and climate control systems. Opting for the secondrow captains chairs delivers adequate legroom for adults, even in the third row. However, youll only seat six with this choice as opposed to the seven you could accommodate with the rear bench seat. On the other hand, the bench renders the third row suitable only for children, so considering the stature of your passengers when choosing an interior configuration is a good idea. Maximum cargo capacity measures 81.7 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded. All of this is stacked on top of self-parking (both parallel and perpendicular), blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and massaging front seats. Thanks to the MyFord Touch interface system, voice activation and a high-res touchscreen provide even more of a premium vibe to the Explorer Platinum. The 2018 model year adds a 4G LTE hotspot to Explorers already-generous equipment list. Pricing for the 2018 Explorer lineup ranges from $31,990 to $53,940. On the safety front, NHTSA gave the Explorer five stars overall, while the IIHS rated the Explorer Good (its highest ranking) in nearly all tests except its small overlap frontal offset event, in which it was rated Marginal (the second-to-thelowest ranking). By and large though, you can feel good about pressing either the Explorer Platinum or Explorer Sport into service as family transportation. The love affair continues unabated.Crowd Pleasing Bread-and-Butter SUVThe 2018 Ford Explorer is packed with smart technology and comfort features. Updated style and greater choice for the 2018 Ford Explorer means ve new wheel options, a Safe and Smart Package, and available SYNC Connect with 4G modem and Wi-Fi hotspot that connects up to 10 devices. Among the standard features are automatic headlamps, auxiliary rear climate controls, hill start assist, and LED headlamps with halogen reector high beams.

(StatePoint) Is your home deccor starting to feel a bit stale? Spruce up your interiors with some of the hottest home design trends for 2018 from customized cozy to natural textures to retro touches. Here are some stylish ways to incorporate new trends, from one of the nations most sought-aer celebrity interior designers, Taniya Nayak. 1. Create an Oasis: Make your home a tropical escape all year long. Add oral or banana leaf accents to form a staycationworthy at home paradise no matter the temperature. Nayak suggests pairing pops of metallic gold with plush greens and crisp white to build a look that is sophisticated, yet fun and exotic. 2. Keep it Simple: In 2018, Nayak encourages DIYers to dream big or go home in the simplest way imaginable. An easy way to accomplish this is to paint your baseboards, trim or window mullions a dramatic contrasting color, like black against a white wall, for an eortless, yet powerful eect. And when it comes to achieving clean, sharp paint lines, one of Nayaks vital, go-to tools is a premium painters tape, like FrogTape brand painters tape that delivers the sharpest paint lines possible. Treated with patented PaintBlock Technology, FrogTape is a foolproof way to get professional-looking results and eliminate the need for touch-ups. 3. Incorporate Natural Touches: is trend is all about natures textures think wood grain, geodes or ocean waves. One way to incorporate this look is to combine earthy tones like browns, beiges and deep blues with vibrant neon colors to generate the eect of the northern lights around the home. 4. Get Back to the Future: Give what is an old a modern, futuristic update to achieve this trend. Try painting a vintage chair with a pop of color, like the Sherwin-Williams 2018 color of the year, Oceanside, a combination of rich blue with jewel-toned green. is creates an eye-catching masterpiece that seamlessly integrates into both retro and modern home decor. Introducing bright colors to antiques produces a beautiful new spin on a classic look. 5. Design it with Love: Whats in home design this year? Creating warm and cozy spaces that are customized just for you. is is the true essence of DIY. Painting an accent wall in a pastel color, like lavender, will set a relaxed and comforting tone in the room. From there, add personal pieces like a so woven blanket, a macram wall hanging or ivory plates on a wall to transform any room to your room. 6. Embrace New England Prep: is style embraces the timeless combination of crisp white linens and navy blues, but what really gives a room an authentic New England vibe is the addition of camel-colored leather decor accents. Nayak recommends adding monogrammed pillows to a leather accent chair, or whitewashing your brick replace to create a look that never goes out of style.

CONTACT BRIAN MCBRIDE EDITOR EMAIL BMCBRIDE@OSCEOLANEWSGAZETTE.COM What a home buyer should knowIf youre in the market to buy a home, you may be bewildered by some aspects of the process. New buyers have a lot to contend with, but this article will give rst-timers a rundown of some important things to know. First and foremost know your credit score. A low credit score may sink your ability to land nancing, and chances are youre going to need it. You can get your credit score for free by going through sites like Experian.com or you can find out through your lender when getting prequalified. Pre-qualification will tell you how much the bank determines they will lend you based on your credit rating, your income, and debt to income ratio. It may be tempting to go online and choose some lender youve never heard of that is oering a deal thats almost too good to be true, but do you research rst. Talk to at least a few dierent lenders to get a feel for what will be the best choice for you, then when youve made your choice, get a pre-qualication letter to share with sellers that you make oers to, so that they know you have the nancial backing necessary to make a deal happen. If you havent been able to save the full 20 percent down-payment required for a conventional loan, you may have other nancing options available to you. Programs like FHA will allow you to put as little as 3.5 percent down, but there are restrictions to how much you can borrow depending on where you live. is is a good option if your credit score is less than perfect. e disadvantage of an FHA loan is that it requires the buyer to pay a mortgage insurance premium (MIP). Another option available to qualied buyers are VA loans which are guaranteed by the Veterans Administration (VA). ese loans are available to past and current members of the military and can allow veterans to qualify for a zero-down loan. ere is a funding fee, however, usually between 1.25 and 3.3 percent of the loan amount. When youre looking at properties, keep in mind that school districts can aect the price of properties. If you dont have young kids, you may want to consider nding better deals outside of top school districts that draw families. ere are a number of apps that can help you in your home search in addition to, and in conjunction with using your agent. Realtor.coms app updates every 15 minutes from the local MLS, so you can see all the newest listings right away. is is very helpful in markets with constrained inventory and tight demand. Once youve found that perfect house and have had your oer accepted, beware the dreaded appraisal. is can throw the whole deal o. e house must appraise at or above the price you and the buyer agree to for the sale to be approved by the lender. If it is less, either the buyer will have to agree to go lower, or you will be expected to come up with the dierence in cash. In many cases, this terminates the sale. Closings are the last step in the home buying process and are a pretty signicant chunk of change. Get with your agent to discuss how much youll need at the end of the process to close the sale. is is typically at least a few thousand dollars. In some cases, buyers can negotiate with sellers to cover at least some of the costs of closing. is is a strategy you should discuss with your agent to see if its best for you and your situation. Make sure before you close that you carefully read all pertinent documentation, paying special attention to HOA documents. You will want to know what restrictions and fees you will be responsible for as a member of this community. Hopefully this list of items helps demystify the process somewhat, but remember, your Realtor can ll you in on any questions or concerns that you may have. Realtors have the training and skill to take the stress out of the process and get you into your dream home. SNG 021018
