When Patty Newsom deployed with the U.S. Army for the Gulf War in December 1990, she left behind her newborn and a 2-year-old daughter, and soon found herself as the only woman serving with her section. She said leaving her children was rough, especially with it being right before Christmas. But duty calls. You gotta do what you gotta do. It was miserable, she said. Her second daughter was born on Aug. 30, 1990. e next day, her then-husband David, who was also serving in the Army, shipped out. A er 30 days of maternity leave, Newsom returned to duty and began preparing to go to war. She took her children to Boston where her family Veteran recalls wartime in the desertSee Veteran, Page 5.

Or at least close to it. Thats about $31,000 per year almost double what an employee earns working full time at $8.25 an hour, Floridas current minimum wage. e $15-an-hour wage standard now drives Valencias technical skills programming in Osceola, said Joe Batista, vice president for continuing, professional and global education. ats our target. ats what were shooting for and thats the direction weve been going the past couple years, Batista said. However, some graduates will likely earn less, closer to $13 an hour, such as those who graduate from construction program for an entry-level position, he said. But others, such as those in apartment service maintenance and heavy equipment operation, will likely earn between $18 and $20 an hour. We want to continue raising the bar and were working with industries that are at least inching toward the $15 an hour mark, Batista said. Valencia has designed and continues to modify as needed its accelerated skills programs to meet the needs of future-employee students and of the Central Florida companies that will hire them. The accelerated, hands-on technical programs already are being offered in temporary buildings at the Osceola campus and at the Advanced Manufacturing Training Center on Shady Lane in Kissimmee, which opened three years ago. Those include highly-specialized courses, such as heavy equipment operation, transportation logistics, welding, electronic board assembly and apartment service maintenance technician. Valencias new Center for Accelerated Training will house the more traditional trade skills programs while keeping the manufacturing-centered courses at the smaller Shady Lane campus.

Roadwork on the RadarNew Carroll Street widening project gets underwayA popular street in Kissimmee is now undergoing a much-needed make over. Since the end of October, Public Works crews have been widening Carroll Street to four lanes along with other improvements from acker Avenue on the east to Donegan Avenue on the west. e project is expected to wrap up in January 2020. The Carroll Street Widening Project includes the construction of a fourlane divided roadway with sidewalks and streetlights on both sides of the approximately 1.3-mile stretch of road. The initial construction plan is to build out the two westbound (north side) lanes, before swapping trac to the north side as workers build those two eastbound (south side) lanes. The construction of the westbound lanes will take about eight months to complete, according to a city release. e eastbound lanes should take an additional six months to nish. Lane closures will be kept to a minimum during the day, with crews working evenings and overnight as needed. Access to developments and area businesses will always be maintained, according to the release, but short-term lane closures are to be expected as workers connect existing utilities and drainage pipes.

Page 4 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, November 24, 2018 By Peggy Choudhry Similar to personal budgeting, preparing a budget in government involves tracking expenses and making informed decisions. Every year, local governments must prepare and adopt an annual budget. Even for local government officials, the process involves development, scrutiny, revision and priority. Although it can be a tough period, it is certainly essential, more so when administering public funds. Budget preparation and approval is one of the most important duties for a county commissioner as it is the key mechanism for governments to determine how objectives will be met, what services will be met and how to improve government performance. Our fiscal year began Oct. 1 and the board unanimously approved a $1.17 billion budget. A billion is an amount that is almost unimaginable to most people. And while it sounds impressive, portions of those dollars are already committed, leaving a smaller portion of funds available to have the exibility to fund new and/or needed priorities determined by the majority of the commission. In my short tenure as a commissioner, I have learned that budgeting in politics is a juggling act between wants, needs and reality. The decision of where the funding will go is based on what the majority of the commission would like to focus on. While reviewing our resources and making projections, resident involvement is an important element of the budget process before its nal adoption. is is why it was a priority for me to have several town halls throughout the year before the budget process as it allows for participation as two-way communication between residents and o cials. For me, putting the request of the people rst is the most important part of the budgeting process. This year, in many of the town hall meetings, the majority of the residents requested that I vote not to increase taxes or add any additional fees. Many spoke about the difficulties they face paying their current property taxes, as well as other additional increase taxes, such as the gas tax in our county. ey expressed frustration and asked that our commission be more responsible with their tax dollars. So that is what I did for this year. I advocated not to increase taxes as well as not to add or increase any fees. I am proud to say that the millage rate for our county, as well as the overall tax rate controlled by the board, did not increase; it actually remains the same as last year. is years budget was a balancing act between available resources and the demand of mandated and core responsibilities especially the state mandate for school resource o cers in every school. As many of us will agree, keeping our children safe is a priority so we must provide the funds needed to help make this happen. This led to a significant increase in the Sheri s O ce budget request for scal year 2019. The adopted budget for the Sheri s O ce is $75.5 million, an increase of $5.2 million from the previous year. is puts one resource officer in every public school as well as an increase of officers patrolling our streets. Next year will be more of a challenge, as we know that this cost is not sustainable and that the state Legislature must address this issue in the upcoming session. The county continues experiencing many positive signs that the economy is recovering as property valuations increased by 10.65 percent, though they have still not reached scal year 2018 valuations (prerecession levels). Highlights of this years spending plan include: $9 million for road resurfacing. Approximately $2.9 million for environmental and engineering processes to determine impacts associated with improvements to Neptune and Simpson roads. Approximately $3.3 million in Tourist Development Tax funds for improvements to Osceola Heritage Park As Osceola County continues to grow, it is my priority to remain accessible to the residents. As in the past, I will continue to conduct many town hall meetings throughout the year in district 1. Please email me if you would like to be on the email list,which includes announcements, information, town hall dates and locations. I welcome and value your input. Please feel free to share any of your concerns, ideas or information by calling my office at 407-742-2000, or by email to Peggy. Choudhry@osceola.org.

LOCAL LOCALSaturday, November 24, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 5VETERANContinued from Page 1 lived. You miss the first walk, the rst Christmas, rst this, rst that, she said. It takes a toll on a family, believe me. My two-year-old was a mess when I came back. At that time there was no email, Facetime or Skype to keep families connected during deployment. When I left Fort Campbell, I wrote a diary, I wrote down every single thing for my kids. And, I used to make them little cassette tapes, said Newsom. I did a lot of that stu so, God forbid, if something happens, they would have my book, they would have my cassette tapes, just so the kids would know what goes on day-today. She also took photos to send home for them. Newsom was accustomed to being among few women while serving in the Army, but in wartime out in the desert, it was dicult being the only woman in her section. She recalls having to build a makeshi shower and hiding under a truck to go to the bathroom. She did her laundry in a little bucket and never felt clean. It was no place for a woman, she said. It was not the way I was used to living. Most of her deployment was spent in Bahrain. eir section set up base in a parking garage near the airport. When I got there at the airport where we were staying, right at the airport, they had the scud missiles going o, she said. When were driving around, were doing our thing, you can see the leover missiles, you can see on the side of the road these little families living in tents, kids that are starving, dead goats in the road, and you got kids running up to the truck looking for food; thats what killed me. Although its been more than 25 years since the war, the memories still come back to her. You dont forget certain things, said the 54-year-old veteran. She remembers seeing the missiles on the side of the road and not knowing if they were still active or wondering if someone walking along the road was hiding an explosive. It wasnt a safe place, she said She learned she was going home in early 1991, but it was not an easy transition. She had to live in a Motel 6 for a while because she didnt have housing. Her husband remained deployed for another month aer she got home. And the kids had to adjust to mom being home again and living in a motel. Eventually, she had a new house built and also learned she was pregnant with her third child. A few months after David got back, he received orders to ship out to Korea. When her daughter was born in April 1992, she only weighed 4 pounds, 11 ounces and was sick, showing symptoms related to Gulf War Syndrome. She couldnt gain weight and was in and out of the hospital. ats when I had to get out, Newsom said. She left the Army in 1992. It took a lot to adjust, she said, referring to the move back to civilian life. You have to nd your way again. For her Army service, Newsom received two Good Conduct medals, an NCO Professional Development ribbon, M-16 Rie Expert Badge, National Defense Ribbon, Southwest Asia Service Medal, Saudi Arabia/ Kuwait Liberation Medal, Army Achievement Medal, the Army Commendation Medal, and the Army lapel button. Newsom, who is originally from Boston, joined the Army when she was 19 years old in 1983. She said her father loved the Army, but he couldnt join because he had lost a kidney when he was a child. After graduating from high school, Newsom was working at McDonalds making $4.35 an hour and living with her parents, but she knew that wasnt a longterm plan. I went to the recruiting oce. If my father couldnt do it, Im going to do it, she said. I went in for my dad, mainly, and I loved it. It was a little hard because I had never been away from home. She completed basic training at Fort Jackson in Columbia, S.C. She started out thinking she would work in administration. It wasnt me. Im not the type of person to sit at a desk. So, she went to petroleum school at Fort Lee, Va. In her new job she was refueling helicopters. Newsom said joining the Army was the smartest thing she ever did. I loved it, she said. If it wasnt for the kids, or them shipping him (David) to Korea, I would have stayed in, but you have to prioritize. e children come rst. She went on to work for Delta, the Veterans Administration and as a program assistant for the Department of Labor. Since 2005, Newsom has dedicated her time to volunteering and spending time with her two grandchildren. She moved to Kissimmee about a year and a half ago, and you can oen nd her downtown at American Legion Post 10. I try to do as much as I can for veterans. I volunteer as a bartender; I love it. I donate a lot during the holidays for the kids, Im all about the kids. Any time they need help, Im always here, she said. VALENCIAContinued from Page 1 70 graduates from the electronic board assembly program there, Batista said. By January 2020, a second new building on the Osceola campus will open and will house expanded technologycentered programming such as mechatronics and robotics. Called the Careers in Industry and Technology building, it will also expand Valencias partnership with Career Source Central Florida. Valencia is providing space in the new building for the workforce agency, which oers no-cost employment and training assistance to job seekers. Career Source is a great partner, Batista said, especially because they can help provide funding for students through U.S. Department of Labor for workforce training grants. The cost of construction for the two new buildings at the Osceola campus is about $17.5 million, according to the college. Valencias accelerated technical skills programs are intense but short. ey emphasize hands-on learning, provide learning environments that simulate the workplace and build industry certications into the curriculum. Most of the programs take about six months to complete and cost between $3,000 and $7,000. Students not bound for traditional four-year universities after high school generally had been forgotten until recent years, Batista said. And thats led to the current workforce shortage, in Florida and throughout the U.S., of skilled trade employees with middle-class earning potential, he said.

Medical marijuana in Osceola County schools to go before School Board next month By Rachel Christian Staff Writer The Osceola County School District will soon vote on a rule that would allow students to take prescribed medical marijuana on school property. John Boyd, director of government and labor relations for the School District, discussed the new proposed rule during a Nov. 12 School Board meeting. The rule, if adopted, would establish policies and procedures detailing how students can use medical marijuana on school grounds. Boyd said a nearly identical policy has already been adopted in Broward County. e policy would ensure access to qualied patients, identify how the marijuana will be received and stored, as well as establish processes to prevent access to the drug by other students and school personnel. Highlights of the proposal include: A students parent or registered caregiver must submit a written request to the childs principal at least 48 hours in advance. The parent or caregiver is responsible for administering the medicine. Medical marijuana could not be stored on school district property, including school grounds, at any time. e school principal would need to designate a place on school grounds where the medicine can be taken. The caregiver must fill out and submit the districts Authorization for Medical Marijuana/ Low-THC Cannabis Use for Qualified Students at School form. The caregiver must provide a copy of the student and caregivers Department of Health medical-marijuana registry identification card and a valid form of picture identication. School-level nurses, health care personnel or school staff couldnt administer, store, hold or transport the medical marijuana in any form. Students are prohibited from using medical marijuana on school buses or eld trips. Students could face expulsion if rules are not followed. e School Board has not made a decision on the new rule yet. According to Dana Schafer, public information ocer for the district, a public hearing on the item will be place at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 18 in the School District of Osceola County Administrative Center Board Room. The School Board is likely to take action on the item that night, Schafer said.

Saturday, November 24, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 7 By Ken Jackson Sports Editor Tatyana Lyons, a volleyball player out of Heritage Christian, has signed a Division II full-ride scholarship to the University of Tampa, proving that a players talent is more important than the school they play at. Lyons played ve varsity seasons with the Eagles, who dominated the Florida Christian Conference; Heritage won the conference volleyball title her rst four varsity seasons before the Eagles were upset in the nals this season. Lyons and the Eagles shrugged o the loss and went to the National Association of Christian Athletes national tournament in Tennessee right aer the FCC season completed and won the NACA Division 3 title; the Eagles won two titles and were runners-up two other times at the national Christian school tournament. Lyons, who also had interest from Southeastern University in Lakeland, will attend a new school for the rst time since she came to Heritage Christian in kindergarten 14 years ago. ere were also a couple of Division III schools, but when I visited Tampa and saw the school and met the team I knew 100 percent it was where I wanted to be, said the 5-10 middle blocker who plans to study physical therapy and eventually get a doctorate. Coach Jim Estrella said Lyons, who also played three seasons of basketball for the Eagles before choosing to focus on volleyball, joined the program just in time for its unprecedented run of success. She was the only junior to really play a lot last year, he said. Tatyana could have played anywhere but she stayed here. Were going to miss her. Shes a testament to that if you can play and have the will to work, the schools will nd you. Estrella said Lyons best asset is her leadership. She knows how to win, and has a great family as a support system. She plays a really good middle, and has a willingness to pick everybody else up. Lyons said that blocking is the strongest part of her game, one that she enjoys. Multiple state champion Malyke Hines signs with wrestling power LehighSee Lyons, Page 8.

It has great academics, and on campus I wont be outnumbered, said Hines, who plans to major in sports management with an eye on coaching or becoming an agent. Plus, I feel like Ill have the chance to make an impact right away. e Mountain Hawks are coached by Pat Santoro, who has led a Lehigh wrestler to a national championship each of the past two years coached 16 individuals to a total of 21 EIWA titles.See Hines, Page 8.

Expect another incredibly competitive 5A-9 district tournament, which includes most of Osceola County, Haines City, Lakeland George Jenkins and Davenport Ridge, in late January. Liberty (District 4A-7), Poinciana (3A-11) and New Dimensions (A-9) will have to top Polk and Highlands County competition to reach the playos. Celebration Why cant the Storm make another deep run? Under Coach Chad Boudreaux, the Storm went 16-3-4 and played every postseason match (seven of them) at home. The district tournament seminals and nals will be at St. Cloud, but other than that, the teams loaded for bear again. Center midelder and reigning county Player of the Year Matuck Machado returns along with striker Luis Mora, who scored some big goals during the playo run.

I will not single out players. We work best as a team and no one person is above it, he said. I will say that we lost a lot of re power up top (forwards Inti Antunez, Mel Rodriguez, Eduardo Albuquerque), but we have some players that are returning and new that should and will make up or surpass what we had last season. The one thing I felt we were lacking last year was our defensive unity. We had some great defenders but no one took charge to direct the defense what to do. is year we have a few newcomers that have stepped into those roles and right now even though it is early it seems like they are working well together on the back line. e Storm has red out of the gate, opening 4-0 against the likes of Cypress Creek, Seminole and Lake Mary. e team will play at Olympia and Freedom Monday and Friday and hosts Montverde Academy Wednesday.Gettin that scholarship money Orlando Hoops Magic o to 9-9 start.Page 9.

You make a block, its a game changer, she said. Im working on my hitting and getting used to the speed of the game and tempo that Tampa runs. The Spartans, who play in the Sunshine State Conference along with local schools like Rollins (Winter Park) and Florida Southern (Lakeland), are coached by Chris Catanach, who has led the team this years NCAA Division II Elite Eight; the No. 1 seed Spartans begin play on Thursday in Pittsburgh, Pa. Lyons thanked Estrella for his help making the signing possible. I really appreciate Coach for putting in a lot of time and belief in making me better. When it comes to district and conference, I still believe we play in one of the toughest ones in the state, Boudreaux said. Each year it seems there are a few surprises that we were not expecting. The usual suspects will be up there battling for the title, but one or two teams that are traditionally at the bottom will battle hard and make every game a war. I am hoping we can avoid any trap games, play hard every day, and make a run that matches or surpasses last year. I am hoping this will be another exciting year at CHS, but I know that when you nish the last season at the top everyone will be gunning for you. If our young men come together, play hard everyday, and know that not one person is above the team we will have another exciting season. Gateway e Panthers were 8-103 but were Celebrations toughest test in the OBC and gave the Storm all it could handle in the district seminals. Coach Sagar Patel returns some key pieces like senior midelder Juan Florez, Jean Batista, Aike Perez, Jerson Maldonado and Daniel Castenada. Osceola For the first time in nearly a decade, Coach Tom Bell wont be roaming the sidelines. Hugo Reis takes over for the Kowboys, a program thats been a postseason enigma getting through districts and making the regionals during substandard regular seasons, or losing early in the district tournament, like a loss to Ridge as the No. 2 seed in the District 5A-9 tournament opener last year, Bells last game. Reis has the luxury of a fleet of returning players including starting goalike Juan Villegas and the 23 and 15 goals respectively of Joseth Andino and Jamil Cabriles. Joseth plays fast and agile, Jamil is a playmaker sand Juan is the best goalkeeper the school has had in a while, Reis said. Other top returnees include junior defensive midfielder Parker Brenneman, sophomore center back Antonio Espinoza and agile sophomore wing Ezequiel Rabelo, midelders Daniel Suarez, Phillip Williams, Abraham Lysyj and Arturo Larreal and fullbacks Daniel Perozo and Nick Murray. Reis said its a physical and young team that likes to attack. We have only five seniors with four sophomores. All players that are starting, including the defenders, are able to score, Reis said. St. Cloud Coach Weylan Craig said the Bulldogs have the pieces in place to improve on last years 6-8-3 mark. With seven returning starters, the Bulldogs are seeking to make an impact on a dynamic district full of soccer powerhouses like Osceola, Gateway, Celebration, and George Jenkins, Craig said. Jack Stevens and Ethan McTarsney transferred from Harmony. Seniors Seth Hanson and Javi Salinas look to make a signicant impact at midfield, while junior keeper Noah Craig and senior defenderEzra Lencina lock down the defense. Sophomore Kevin Prado scored the teams rst goal of the season in a loss to Boone. Freshman Anderson Agudello was on his way to earning a starting spot and provided a much needed spark until injury took him out to start the season, Craig said. Poinciana The Eagles were 7-101 a year ago, and return a solid back line of seniors Ahmed Fahim, OBrian Scarlett, Dylan Thephitack, and Mikey Soto. Newcomer Juan Bautista is new to the program and making an impact in the midfield. Sophomore Abdel Nour is a sophomore up from the JV adding punch to the wing. Four goalies are fighting out that starting spot. Coach Daniel Joyner is looking to pump up the Eagles scoring punch. With this being my third year coaching this team I can finally say that the program is really starting to develop and take off, he said. We created a JV program last year, we had over 60 come out this year and we were able to increase our talent level. I feel like this year is going to be a great year for us to make a run at the regional tournament and perform well in district play (against Hardee, Lake Wales and Sebring). I have about 13 seniors that nally understand their role within our team philosophy and system of play. We feel good about this season and look forward to the success of this program. e good thing about being at Poinciana is that many schools dont think of us as a threat. Lots of people are going to be surprised this year. Harmony Former assistant coach Brett Ballard takes over a Longhorns boys program that will look to develop chemistry early in the year. e top returning talent includes midelders Cody Huff, Matthew Espinosa and Carson Weis and striker Hunter Oppedahl. Newcomers fill the back end, like center backs Gilbert Figueroa and Bennett Forsberg and goalie Tyler Lavigne. I am very excited for the team we have put together aer losing some components to other schools in the county from last year, Ballard said. Our team is young and very talented and we look to turn some heads this season. A majority of our players have never played together before but have adapted and built chemistry rather quickly within a new system. Tohopekaliga Coach Eddie Fernandez leads the first group of Tigers onto the field whichever elds they play on, as the schools eld still has not been cleared for play and the school already has its first win, a 4-1 victory over Poinciana on Nov. 13 in which freshman David Turcio scored three goals and sophomore Ruben Liazo added another. Junior David Garcia got the win in goal. The rest of the lineup includes junior midelder William Johnson (two assists in the win), freshman forward Stephon Davis, junior back Adolfo Castro and seniors Foloni Caravahal, Ignacio Graneros and Joel Simmons. Liberty The Chargers have already logged a rivalry win this year, beating Poinciana 2-1 on Nov. 15. The coaches said our class coming in is an extension of the Lehigh tradition, Hines said. Hines has wrestled in OHS Coach Jim Birds club program for about forever, and the coach said hell step up to the collegiate level ready to compete. Hes got college-level skills, but the great thing about him is that hes always learning, Bird said. And the academics are great there, hell get an outstanding education. As for networking in wrestling the names of their All-Americans are right there on the wall. Hines said hes just as focused going for a third FHSAA state title as he was when he rst suited up for the Kowboys. As a team I hope we can win a state title, he said. I also want to help Jaekus (his brother, who was the 106-pound runner-up as a freshman last season). Bird said he plans to enjoy his final season coaching Hines. Im looking forward to seeing him have a great season, have fun and be a leader, the coach said. His story shows what hard work will get you. Even aer three state titles, he knows theres always more work to do.SUBMITTED PHOTOThe Osceola Kowboys look to end Celebrations stranglehold on the Orange Belt Conference and District 5A-9 titles this year.

Saturday, November 24, 2018 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Page 9 SPORTS By Austin David For the News-Gazette Through their first 18 games in the 2018-19 season, the Orlando Magic are 9-9. A team thats seen little success over the last five seasons is currently playing .500 ball as it nishes out the month of November. That may not seem like much on the outside, considering the teams recent history, but the Magic have been playing some inspired basketball lately, beating teams like the Celtics, Spurs, Sixers and Lakers to get to this point in the season. Nikola Vucevic is posting career numbers this season, averaging a double-double in points and rebounds, Aaron Gordon is playing a great overall game on both ends of the court, D.J. Augustin has somehow been able to break out and become a decent starting point guard again and Terrence Ross is making his claim for Comeback Player of the Year and 6th Man of the Year with his performances o the bench. On the surface, it seems Coach Steve Clifford has found some special formula to help a Magic organization that has been mired in mediocrity for over a half-decade, find some semblance of success. Buuuuuuut is is a story Magic fans have heard before. At this point in the season last year, the team was 8-8 before the wheels completely fell o and the team rode the hubcaps all the way to a 2557 nish. It was a season that literally took years o of former Head Coach Frank Vogels life, who visibly aged through the season before being red at the end it. Even the season before last, the Magic struggled to win games or even have decent performances aer they traded away Victor Oladipo for Serge Ibaka, which turned out to be a complete disaster from Rob Hennigans front oce. A disaster that spelled the beginning of the end for the former Magic General Manager. So, with all that being the case, just what are the 2018 Orlando Magic? Are they contenders that can ght for a playo spot in a very weak Eastern Conference? Or are they just once again getting fans hopes up in the early season, just for another dismal, destructive season that ends in yet another lottery pick? Only time will tell if the team are contenders or pretenders, but there is one thing that can be said about this team thats different from years past: theyre keeping games close and contending for wins. Early in the season, their losses were a bit skewed, but since the start of November, Steve Clifford has had time to implement his system into the roster and the team has played better basketball since. Theyve won seven of their last ten games, culminating with their most recent game, a 93-91 loss to the Toronto Raptors on Tuesday night. But even in that loss, it took a last second shot from Danny Green for the best team in the East to get the win. at says a bit about the growth of the team, even if they did end up dropping the game. Another difference making factor so far this season has been Clifford himself. A coach that has a winning history with the Magic, something very rare these days, that holds players accountable and does not take any nonsense from anyone. Hearing some of his postgame press conferences are a treat, since unlike his predecessors, Clifford doesnt hold anything back from the cameras or the media. e bench played bad? Hell tell you about it. Team couldnt rebound the ball and got killed on the glass? Hell share his disappointment and then some. Hes never one to sugarcoat a situation, and thats something that the Magic organization has lacked since the Stan Van Gundy era ended back in 2012. The Magics former number five overall pick back in 2015, Mario Hezonja, had a great quote during his exit interview aer Frank Vogel was red. Its a perfect representation of what Vogel lacked during his tenure and what Cliord has brought to the table to this point: I think we need a guy that is going to really ask us to be on top of our stu on the court and o the court have the authority with us and not care about our players feelings just be really strict with us. So, to bring this full circle: the Magic have the building blocks for success and are seemingly taking a step in the right direction, but only time will tell if they can break tradition and continue finding consistency on the court. Regardless of what happens the rest of the season, enjoy the good start Orlando has gotten off to. You never know how long itll last. St. Cloud LL Challenger buddies St. Cloud Little League Challenger Division is looking for buddies to help its athletes. e league plays Saturdays from 9-11 a.m. and needs volunteers to help its challenged athletes bat, run the bases and stay focused while in the eld. e league has many new players this season and one of the main goals is to let the parents be able to sit back and watch their child.

Comprehensive safety and emergency plans for every site are in place to ensure that our schools are places where students can learn and grow and teachers and employees can work, free from concerns about safety. Those detailed plans are not available to the public to prevent those with ill intent from using information against our children and staff. In addition, all schools regularly conduct various drills, such as re drills, severe weather drills, and intruder drills to prepare students for an emergency. Our district is grateful for close collaborative relationships with the Osceola County Sheri s Office, the Kissimmee Police Department and the St. Cloud Police Department. Not only do these law enforcement agencies assist the district with trainings and immediate assistance and communication in times of need, they ensure that every Osceola public school now has a school resource o cer on campus every day, in partnership with Osceola County, city of Kissimmee, and city of St. Cloud government o cials. While it is devastating to think of a violent act being attempted in one of our schools, it is important to remember that our students, parents, and sta are our best line of defense. We rely on our entire school community to inform a school or law enforcement o cial if they are aware of any threat so we can thoroughly investigate and respond. A website has been created to report any threat at www.osceolaschools.net/ keeposceolasafe. Be assured that every threat is taken seriously, and we continue to encourage See Gifts, Page 12 See Schools Page 12. Superintendent Debra Pace

Page 12 OSCEOLA NEWS-GAZETTE Saturday, November 24, 2018 By Freddy Groves The U.S. Housing and Urban Development (HUD) says that overall veteran homelessness is down 5.4 percent this year, half of what it was in 2010. at still leaves a lot of veterans without a place to call home. In some states, the homeless rate has actually increased. Montana, for example, saw a rise of 20 percent in the past two years. New Mexico was up a whopping 35.5 percent, and New Hampshire rose 16.3 percent. Not only is homelessness among veterans not completely xed, but winter is here. Consider whether you can help. Even though most large towns have homeless shelters, not all veterans want to stay in one. Or perhaps the shelter rules say they must leave during daytime hours. Your rst step is to call local shelters. Ask about their veteran population and join up with crews that go out into the community seeking veterans who need help. Assistance can include bringing them in from the cold during daytime hours, hooking them up with veterans services, giving them warm coats and blankets, or even handing out hot coee and sandwiches. You might run into objections to going into a shelter. Example: Maybe a veteran has a dog. Finding a rescue foster home for the dog might convince the veteran to go into a shelter where he or she will be closer to available services. Your argument can be that the sooner the veteran gets stable housing, the faster he can be reunited with his pooch. If you want to help homeless veterans, keep these two websites handy: The Homeless Assistant (www.thehomelessassistant. com) and Homeless Accommodation (www. homelessaccommodation. com). Keep this number in your wallet: Homeless veteran services at the VA 1-877-424-3838.VETERANS POSTGIFTSContinued from Page 11 lavender can be enjoyed fresh or the stems and owers snipped, dried and added to bouquets and sachets.

PARKContinued from Page 11 liked the idea of a dog park in the neighborhood but stressed they did not want drive up trac. The park features a quarter-mile, shaded paved path that leads to a natural grass dog exercise area. Two areas are present one for small dogs and another for dogs 30 pounds and up. The area includes a covered shelter for shade, two drinking fountains for both humans and dogs, and benches for owners to keep watch over their pets. A dog wash station is located just outside the exercise area. In the near future, the exercise area will have dogoriented training and play equipment added to the site, ocials said. As a reminder, all dogs in the park must be on a leash, except when they are in the fenced-in exercise area. SCHOOLSContinued from Page 11 and expect our students and our community members to say something if they see or hear a specic threat. Unfortunately, we continue to follow up on false and misleading social media posts and non-specific threats. is is disruptive, costly and distracting, and both the district and law enforcement will respond appropriately when those making false threats are identied. Please recognize that if an investigation indicates that something or someone does pose a credible threat to one of our schools, you will hear directly from us. We also share in the social and emotional well being of our community. Our sta cares deeply for each student, and they work every day to provide the support necessary so each individual can grow and succeed when they leave our school district. Our sta members communicate with one another, and individual team members are well versed in identifying, assessing, referring and supporting students who may be struggling. We also have strong community partners who stand ready to assist parents or students in need. Thank you for your continued trust and support; by working together, we will ensure that our schools remain safe places to learn and work.

St. Cloud; 706-379-1571 www.inallthingspray.com The hustle and bustle of the o en hectic holiday season can make it easy to overlook religion during this special time of year. Come the holidays, adherents of Judaism celebrate Chanukah while many Christians celebrate Christmas. Though di erent, the two holidays share some similarities. In celebration of Chanukah, families gather for an eightday commemoration to honor the rededication of the Second Temple of Jerusalem and a miracle in which a small amount of oil illuminated a menorah for eight days. Perhaps because it falls during the holiday season, Chanukah has become one of the most well known Jewish celebrations, even for those who do not adhere to the Jewish faith. For devout Christians, Christmas isnt about eggnog and Santa Claus. Christmas (Christs Mass) is a celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, who Christians believe is the son of God. Christmas is a day of great joy in the Christian faith because it marks the beginning of Jesus time on earth. Both Chanukah and Christmas, while joyous celebrations, are laced with solemnity. The Second Jewish Temple was desecrated by GreekSyrians, who had erected an altar to Zeus and sacri ced pigs within its sacred walls. At this point in time, Jews had to practice their faith in secret, reading the Torah underground and using dreidels to simulate games and confuse Greek soldiers. However, the Jews, led by a small group of rebels known as the Maccabees, persevered, marking the joy of Chanukah for years to come. e period leading up to Christmas known as Advent is a time for repentance and preparation for the grace and miracle of Jesus birth. According to Christianity. com, the word advent is derived from the Latin word adventus, meaning coming. Advent is a time to both re ect on the past and look forward to the future. Much like Lent, Advent is intended to be a season of fasting, prayer and reaching out to God. During the holiday season, houses of worship customarily host prayer sessions and special holidayrelated events. e faithful are encouraged to participate in these events in celebration of their faith. Prayer can help remove distractions during the holiday season, helping individuals reconnect with the true meaning of the holiday season. Make worship an integral part of the holiday season According to the Pew Research Center, Christians were the largest religious group in the world in 2015. In the 2017 report, e Changing Global Religious Landscape, the Pew Research Center states that there are roughly 2.3 billion Christians in the world. at gure translates to slightly more than 31 percent of the worlds population. Muslims (1.8 billion) make up the worlds second largest religious group in 2015, accounting for nearly one-quarter of the worlds overall population of 7.3 billion. Pew researchers project that Muslims will be the fastestgrowing major religious group between 2015 and 2060, followed by Christians, Hindus and Jews, respectively. at might be because so many subscribers to the Muslim faith are young. In fact, Muslims have the youngest median age (24) of any of the worlds major religions, meaning many Muslims have their childbearing years ahead of them. e median age for Christians is 30, which could be why the Christian population is not expected to grow as signi cantly in the coming decades as the Muslim population. religious group in the world in 2015.
