No shooting

GROVELAND Those

Twice about discharging
their weapons in
Groveland.
On Monday night,
council members made it
illegal when they unani-
mously voted to prohibit
the discharge of a firearm
within Groveland's city
limits.
"When people shoot
bullets into the air, they
'tend nct to care or worry
about where they'll be
coming down," Mayor
Richard Smith said.
"There are parts of the
city where firearms have
been discharged in the
past so this ordinance is
meant to strengthen the
police department's tools
for enforcing that."
Smith said there have
been reports of people
shooting bullets into the
air in Groveland during
holiday celebration or
"just for fun" a night-
mare for the police
department having to
respond to calls.
Groveland's city limits
are also considered a bird
sanctuary.

To do that, local residents
Jessica and Jason Beckford,
their three children Jahvon,

Many drivers honked

some drivers took the
"Help Haiti" signs to heart

we stopped when we saw
them. We're hoping a lot of
others will stop too,"
Clermont resident Peter
Corbo said. "We can't be
blindsided by the fact that

Yoga center to
hold special
class to bring

LARRY ELL
Staff Writer
Practicing an ancient art
can help bring relief from a
modern disaster. This
Saturday, Yoga Central in
Mount Dora will celebrate
National Yoga Day USA by
hosting a donations-only
class.
The class will be held
from 10:45 a.m. until noon
and is open to all levels of
ability. All participants have
to do is bring a cash dona-
tion for the Worldvision
Haiti Relief Fund or two
canned or non-perishable
food items for the Lake
Cares Food Bank in Mount
Dora.
"We're hoping for a good
20-30 people at least," Yoga
Central owner Shata Ben-
Avari said. "We can accom-
modate about 40 in the
center for a yoga practice,
but we can get creative to
slip a few more in if neces-
sary. The more the better."
All the money raised will
be sent to Haiti to help in
the ongoing relief efforts in
the aftermath of last week's
earthquake. As the devasta-
tion continues to play out
across newspapers and tele-
vision screens, Ben-Avari
says many Americans may
need a sense of relief as
well. So, participating in a
group yoga class can help
ease feelings of anxiety or
anger.

Infant still

clings to life

MILLARD K. IVES
Staff Writer
CLERMONT A 5-week-old
baby boy was clinging to life
Saturday evening at Arnold
Palmer Hospital for Children
after he stopped breathing dur-
ing a feeding, but police officers
are credited with helping to
resuscitate him.
According to a Clermont
police spokesman, the mother
was bottle-feeding the infant at
home when he became ill.
Police spokesman Capt. Jon
Johnson said although the
infant is "not out of the woods
yet," the two officers,
Christopher Vigeant and
Ramon Rodriquez, are responsi-
ble for giving this child the
"chance it now has to survive.:
"Their quick and decisive
actions and unwillingness to
give up gave hope to both par-
ents and their newborn infant,'
Johnson said.
According to Johnson, the
officers responded to a
Clermont home where an
infant, whom the department
didn't identify, was grey and
appeared lifeless in the mother's
arms.
The mother told police the
baby had began to choke on the
formula.
Johnson said that Vigeant,
without hesitation, immediately
began to administer mouth-to-
mouth resuscitation with the
assistant of Rodriguez until
Emergency Medical Services
arrived.
After being stabilized at South
Lake Hospital, the infant was
taken to Arnold Palmer Hospital
for children. At 6 p.m., the child
was still undergoing testing.
Johnson said both officers would
be recognized for their actions.

Filming on "The Old Livingston House," a novel by local author Jeffery Lamb, continues on Friday, in Fruitland Park.


A LOCAL LOOK AT FEATURE FILMS




Couple hopes to complete

work on movie by end of 2011
A r


DAVID DONALD
Staff Writer
When Jeffery Lamb wrote "The Old
Livingston House: A Teenage
Adventure," he never dreamed it
would turn into a full-length fea-
ture film. Lamb began shooting the film ver-
sion of his adventure tale Jan. 13 at a south-
ern plantation-style home in Fruitland Park.
"It's not a kids movie," Lamb said. "It's
for everybody."
Most of the 18-member cast and crew live
in Lake and Marion counties. Lamb and his
wife, Sherri, attended numerous school plays
and community theatre productions looking
for the right actors to bring the book's char-
acters to life.


"It's amazing," Jeffery Lamb said. "It's a
family movie and the community has come
together like a family to put this together."
They hope to finish shooting the film by
the end of 2011, in time to submit it to the
Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival.
The movie's plot centers around two
teenagers, Summer White and Corey Stone.
When Stone, played by John Glendinning,
18, and White, played by Ashely Baker, 17,
find a treasure map they become.entangled
with two burly bikers Coke Machine and
Tattoo Todd, who want the map. A struggle
to hold 6nto the map ensues as the teens
attempt to avoid the bikers and find the
treasure. Coke Machine is played by Bubba
Baker, who has played in several major
motion pictures, such as "Bad Boys 2," "Ace


Ventura: Pet Detective" "Monster" and
"Running Cool."
Many of the students the Lambs found to
work on the film are getting experience for
the first time.
Ashley Baker said she's excited to have the
chance to gain some acting experience on a
feature film. She said she can relate to the
character she is playing.
"Summer is very strong and independent,"
said Baker, a student at Eustis High School.
"She's very down-to-earth."
Glendinning, a Eustis High School gradu-
ate, said he's enjoying working on the film.
He said his character is a lot like himself -
funny and goofy.
"This could be a jump-start into some-
thing else," he said.


The film is the Lambs' first. The couple
have spent more than a year acquiring
equipment, learning how to use it, and pro-
ducing the finished product.
With a $20,000 budget which repre-
sents most of their net worth the Lambs
say, they can't afford to make mistakes.
Because they can't use Coca-Cola or Pepsi
products in the movie, they've created their
own soft drink called "Gator Spit." The label
for the drink was designed by John Butler, a
design student and Lake Tech in Eustis. The
movie's run time is expected to come in at
1:45.
"If this movie flops, it's my fault. I think
we're going to have a high-quality movie for
the budget we have," Lamb said. "It will
turn heads."

while watching footage of
the desperate situation
unfold.
Sometime during it all,
God sparked her heart with
the courage to wipe away the
tears and do something to
help.
"Any devastation any-
where is gonna be painful if
you have a heart, but when
you know people, it's that
much worse," Beckford said.
"But God spoke to me and I
knew I couldn't just sit there
crying in front of the televi-
sion anymore. I knew I had


to stand up and make this

Since that moment,
Beckford has been on the
phone with businesses, indi-
viduals and organizations
that may be able to help on
her quest to collect all the
supplies she can for the peo-

LARRY ELL
Staff Writer
F or many kids, there's no contest in the battle between video
games and books. So the question for educators is: How do you
make it a fair fight? Schools in Lake County are trying to even
the playing field with Celebrate Literacy Week. The event started
Monday and promises to offer students plenty of reasons to
indulge in the joys of reading.


"It's great because our
schools are teaming with our
business partners who are
coming in to read stories,
they're doing plays, they're
doing pajama nights, they're
decorating their doors, it's
just a blitz," said Lake
County Schools Director of
Elementary Curriculum
Rhonda Hunt. "I think they
need to see that reading '
opens doors for them."
Every elementary and mid-
dle school and a few high
schools have special events
planned to spark and ulti-
mately keep that interest
burning. A few examples
include Fruitland Park
Elementary decorating the
school with posters of
celebrities reading that chal-
lenge them to "Get Caught
Reading," Rimes Early
Learning Center is hosting
Book Bingo, Mount Dora
Middle School is airing Book
Talks during morning
announcements and at
Spring Creek Elementary, stu-
dents earn stickers by reading
to teachers.
"The biggest thing is that
it's across all curriculum
areas," Tavares Middle School
Literacy Coach Maxine
Mangus said. "I think some-
times in middle school there
are so many benchmarks
that need to be taught and
there's so much focus on an
end of the year test, that we
forget that we have to inspire
kids across all curriculum
areas that reading is impor-
tant."
Stressing that importance
means finding a way to
inspire the students to find
fascination with a low-tech
endeavor in a high-tech
world. If that can be accom-
plished, educators feel that
there is a strong likelihood
that a long-term relationship
can be established.
"The goal is to promote
the enjoyment of reading, so
the students won't see it as a
job or homework or a task,


they'll see it as something
fun and a way to leam and
grow," Fruitland Park
Elementary Literacy Coach
Robin Colborne said. "I think
it's important to tap in to


what they're interested in.
That's the key, if you can find
what they're interested in
and then give them a book,
that's a pretty good way to
get 'em hooked."

Opinion


Help Haiti recover, rebuild


The numbers are staggering.
More than 200,000 people are
reported to have died in the
Haiti quake.
This is a country in ruins, devastat-
ed by a relatively common phenom-
enon of Mother Nature.
Crews are still digging through
rubble and finding bodies living
and dead.
Thousands of children are home-
less, newly orphaned and bewildered
by this tragedy.
What makes this event extraordi-
nary is not only the magnitude of
the destruction, but the depth of the
compassion.
While the United States has taken
the lead in getting help to quake vic-
tims, it's not just the authorities who


have extended a hand to Haiti.
Help is sprouting up at local levels.
The Lake and Sumter Emergency
Recovery organization is providing
an opportunity for residents to send
aid to the people of Haiti.
Local churches, organizations and
makeshift groups are also trying to
find ways to help.
You can't help but feel sympathy
amid the devastation, but the Haiti
quake has stirred a profound sense of
compassion.
And compassion sways the human
spirit. It allows us to transcend the
mundane worries of every day.
Suddenly, those little inconveniences
and irritations shrink against the
backdrop of what has happened to
the Caribbean nation.


Something within us compels us: 'i
We have to engage. We cannot
ignore the human suffering, we must
diminish the heartache. We cannot
turn from the pain.
We applaud those in Lake County
who are helping. And we urge others
to give.
While we may tire of the seeming-
ly endless coverage in the newspa-
pers and on television, we must keep
the human suffering in Haiti in the
forefront of our minds.
Find a way to give, find a way to
participate in efforts to help.
Whether you ever realize it or not,
you'll be touching another person's
life in a positive way.
And that's what life is all about.

SHOOTING
From Al


gun in public, specifically across roads
or into houses, but nothing that bans
shooting towards the skies.
Groveland's new ordinance will
expand the state's criteria banning
shooting bullets on public and private
property.
"The fact that a firearm is discharged
in the air doesn't mean that it is a safe
direction, what goes up must come


down and there have been people
injured by projectile falling from the
sky," city documents state.
Smith said council members may still
opt to discuss whether the ordinance
sufficiently covers the shooting of all
firearms, including air pellet and bee-
bee guns, or if those types of weapons
have to be specified separately within
the ordinance.

Donations help student

LARRY ELL

Student leaders at Lake-Sumter
Community College are able to
thrive in their community and
receive the tools necessary to pursue
their degrees through their participa-
tion in the Student Ambassador
Program.
Recently, that program received a
$8,400 donation from the Hans &
Cay Jacobsen Foundation that will
help maintain the high standards
the group has set for itself.
"The LSCC Ambassadors are.select-
ed for their leadership, Communica-
tion and social skills as well as their
academic achievement," said
Rosanne Brandeburg, Executive
Director o'f the LSCC Foundation.
"Because of the generous gift from
the Hans & Cay Jacobsen
Foundation, we are thrilled to be
able to continue to offer this pro-
gram for future students."


As part of the Student
Ambassador Program,
students receive a
scholarship to help pay for
their tuition and books, as
well as stipends for their
service to the college.


Brandeburg thanked Teresa
Borcheck and Tom Brooks for the
funding that will help support the
worthwhile program.
The Student Ambassadors act as
liaisons between the college and the
community and are offered opportu-
nities to explore their leadership and
service potential through an acceler-
ated personal development program.
Through activities like conducting


campus tours, participating in spe-
cial events, speaking to community
members and acting as representa-
tives of the college, the students
interact with all levels of society and
often receive as many benefits as
they offer.
"The Student Ambassador Program
is helping to prepare me for my
future as a nurse," said Student
Ambassador Ashley Newman. "The
program has so many opportunities
for us to get involved and meet
important leaders and community
members, host special events, inter-
act with students and visitors, it is a
great way to share the college with
others."
As part of the Student Ambassador
Program, students receive a scholar-
ship to.help pay for their tuition
and books, as well as stipends for
their service to the college.


STUDENTS' LOOSE CHANGE TO HELP HAITI KIDS


LARRY ELL
Staff Writer
or about half the
price of a bag of
vending machine
potato chips, a hungry
child in Haiti can eat a
healthy meal.
With the ability to make
that kind of impact for so
little a cost, Lake County
schools are participating in
the Kids Helping Kids for
Haiti project.
In conjunction with Lake
and Sumter Emergency
Recovery, the district is ask-
ing each of its students to
bring a quarter to school
this week. Officials with
Lake County Schools say if
every student donates 25
cents, they'll raise $10,000,


which would be enough to
send 45,000 meals to the
earthquake-decimated island
"The schools decided this
was a good way for our chil-
dren to be able to give some-
thing to the community and
the children of Haiti,"
Director of Elementary
Curriculum Rhonda Hunt
said. "But to do it support-
ing a local effort."
The meals, which cost
about 23 cents apiece,
include healthy, vitamin-
rich foods, such as rice and
soy. Officials with the proj-
ect say they'll be packaged at
the LASER office in Eustis at
the end of this week before
being brought to Fort
Lauderdale for a flight to
Haiti. The food will report-
edly be flown directly to


Port-au-Prince and the vil-
lage of Jacmel.
"What we want them to
know is that each individual
effort, no matter how small,
can make something really
big," Hunt said.
School volunteers and stu-
dents will be participating in
the assembly of the meals
along with members of
LASER. Any additional help
from the community would
be appreciated, organizers
said.
.Those interested in volun-
teering to help package the
meals are encouraged to
contact the LASER office at
(352) 483-1029 or submit a
request via e-mail to
leisa@laserfl.com. Meals will
be packaged 5 8 p.m.
Thursday and 10 a.m. 4


p.m. Friday. Volunteers must
be registered by Wednesday.
"Gov. Charlie Crist has
asked Florida to step up and
help our neighbors,"
Michael Tart, Executive
Director of LASER said. "The
State of Florida has given
hundreds of thousands of
dollars to Lake County dur-
ing its times of need, and I
think this is our opportunity
to help repay those efforts
by responding to this over-
whelming need."
The Lake County
Commission created LASER
shortly after 2004 hurri-
canes. LASER's mission is to
strengthen recovery efforts
from any disaster in Lake
and Sumter counties.

COLLEGE
From A7


Mojock said he's looking
at a six-month time frame
and hopes to be able to
make a recommendation to
the board in the summer or
early fall.
"We just feel it's really
important," Mojock said. "If
we were to go to a four-year
degree, it does change our
mission and so we think it's
important that the commu-
nity has every opportunity
to weigh in and give us their
advice and counsel before
we make a big decision of
that nature."
The meeting begins at
8:30 a.m. and should last
about 90 minutes. It will be
held on the campus in the
Student Services building,
conference room #205.
Under Florida Sunshine
laws, the meeting is open to
the public.

Police: Man tried to run


family off the road


MLLARD K. IVES
Staff Writer
A 35-year- old man was
released on $100,000 bail
last week after being
accused of trying to run his
girlfriend and young chil-
dren off the road.
Bradley Brethour, of
Umatilla, was charged with
aggravated assault with a
vehicle in the Wednesday
incident.
According to an arrest
affidavit, the woman told
investigators she was driv-
ing late Wednesday morn-
ing with the couple's 1-
and 4-year-old children
north on County Road 450.
Brethour was driving in
the opposite direction
when he allegedly saw her,
made a u-turn and drove
up behind her.
The woman claimed he
tried to run her off the road
several times over several
miles. Sometime after turn-


ing on County Road 42,
she stopped about a quar-
ter mile west of County
Road 439.
Brethour then allegedly
approached her van.
The affidavit adds that
when a passenger in the
van told Brethour to leave
the woman alone, he
responded that it was a
"custody thing."
Brethour eventually left
and Lake County Sheriff's
deputies caught up with
him afterward.
Brethour contendsthat
when he drove past her in
the opposite direction, it
was she who drove into his
lane, running him off the
road. And, he was trying to
catch up to her to tell her
to slow down her van with
his children inside.
A passenger in Brethour's
car contradicted his
Brethour, saying he never
saw the van veer into his
lane.

Condemned man back before judge


MILLARD K. IVES
Staff writer
-A 32-year-old man on death
row after being convicted during
trial in the 2001 killing of a
Leesburg security guard faced a
Lake County judge last week to
determine whether he was com-
petent enough to testify.
Quawn Moses Franklin con-
tends he didn't have the mental
capacity to understand what was
going on when he stood trial in
the 2004 capital murder of Jerry
Lawley, an Elberta Crate and Box
Factory security guard.
Authorities said Lawley was on
his knees when he was shot in
the back.
Franklin, who also received life
sentences in the killing of a
Leesburg pizza man and the
attempted murder of a Leesburg


The body of pizza delivery man, John Horan, had been found on the same road on Dec. 19,
2001. After ordering pizza from Papa John's and giving a false address, Franklin, of Daytona
Beach, and two others were accused of ambushing Horan, throwing him in the back of his
car and tying him up.


community patriarch during a
two-week crime spree, also con-
tends that he wasn't provided
sufficient legal council, accord-
ing to the State Attorney's Office.
Assistant State Attorney Bill
Gross, who prosecuted Franklin
for the crimes, said the defendant
had unsuccessfully tried to pass
himself off as being too mentally
incompetent for the trial. Gross
added he believes Franklin was
faking.
"He's just not a nice guy," said


C ekott i


Gross. "I'm skeptical about his
claim."
The jury delivered a 12-0 rec-
ommendation he be put to
death.
Three psychologists have been
called to testify in Judge Mark
Hill's courtroom for the hearing,
one hired by the defense and the
other two for the state. It is not
clear when Hill will make a rul-
ing.
According to investigators and
trial testimony, Leesburg police
found Lawley bound and shot
once in the back at Elberta Crate
and Box Factory on Tally Box
Road early on the morning of
Dec. 29, 2001, where he had
worked.
Lawley was flown to Orlando
Regional Medical Center where


he died the next day.
The body of pizza delivery
man, John Horan, had been
found on the same road on Dec.
19, 2001. After ordering pizza
from Papa John's and giving a
false address, Franklin, of
Daytona Beach, and two others
were accused of ambushing
Horan, throwing him in the back
of his car and tying him up.
They were accused of shooting
Horan in the back and killing
him as he tried to run away.
Nearly a week after killing
Horan, the 6-foot-4 Franklin was
accused of forcing himself into
the Leesburg home of then 75-
year-old Alice Mae Johnson, beat-
ing her nearly to death with his
fists and a hammer before steal-
ing her car.


The injuries left her in a wheel-
chair.
Gross said Franklin apparently
fled to St. Petersburg in Johnson's
stolen car, where authorities
caught up with him and found
the murder weapon, a .357 mag-
num, under the seat ending
the two-week crime rampage.
He added Franklin was ready
for a trial in the case, until he
saw Johnson roll in the court-
room in her wheelchair.
Franklin pleaded guilty in the
Horan and Johnson cases, where
he received six consecutive life
sentences.
In 2004, the Florida Supreme
Court unanimously upheld the
conviction and death sentence
for Franklin, who is being held at
a state prison in Raiford.

According to an arrest

The best in Lake

Lake County Teacher of the Year finalists named


LARRY ELL
Staff Writer
In the middle of delivering
their lessons, three teachers
were momentarily rendered
speechless one morning last
week. One by one, each was
given a distinctive honor:
nalist for the Lake County
Teacher of the Year.
The caravan of Educational
Foundation representatives,
school board members and the
school superintendent began
its recognition parade at
Tavares Elementary, where
kindergarten teacher Tracy
Johnson Berry was presented
with a bouquet of roses and
applauded by her students.
"Your teacher is a finalist,"
Superintendent Susan Moxley
told the students. "Isn't she
special?"
The children already knew
the answer. What they may
not have known was that for
the past 13 years, Berry's been
teaching at the primary level
in Lake County. In 2000-2001
she was also named Teacher of
the Year at Roseborough
Elementary in Mount Dora.
But this is her first time reach-
ing this level.
'It's just a wonderful feeling
to be recognized for some-
thing that I love," Berry said.
"It's a real honor."
Next to be honored with
roses and a surprise visit was
Eustis Heights Elementary
Math/Science Coach Rose
Sedely. When Principal Doug
Kroulik walked into her class-
room and told her to take a
timeout, she didn't figure it
was so she could receive an
award.
"I thought something was
going wrong at school," Sedely
said. "I was totally shocked. It's
quite overwhelming and hum-
bling at the same time."
Sedely has spent her entire
17-year career at Eustis Heights
and, since becoming board
certified ten years ago, has
been working with young
teachers to keep them moti-
vated about staying in the pro-
fession.
As Moxley told her, "You
represent all the wonderful
teachers we have at Eustis
Heights Elementary."


For those readers
seriously concerned or even
embarrassed by forgetting
that important name, date or
to-do item again, here's some
welcome news!
A world-renowned brain
research university has
announced the successful testing
of a memory pill that can reclaim
as much as 10, even 15 years
of mental decline and lost brain
power.
It's a fast-acting formula
developed by US clinical
research scientist and best-selling
author Joshua Reynolds that took
years to perfect.
For close to 40 years,
Reynolds studied more than
1.5 million human brains,
analyzing countless brain scans
of older people and researching
thousands of natural ingredients.
Pcera AVH contains the
three premier brain energy
nutrients in precise, clinically
tested doses. Reynolds calls
acetyl-l-carnitine. huperzine
and vinpocetine, "the 3 Miracle
Memory Molecules!"
Are Aging Brains
Starved for Oxygen?
Reynolds explains his
formula's success. "It's a simple

Teacher Lori Westphal, in front, right, is congratulated by members
of the Lake County School Board and the Education Foundation.


The final stop on the
Teacher of the Year Finalists
tour was Rimes Early Learning
and Literacy Center, where
Lori Westphal was teaching
her deaf and hard of hearing
students. For the past 18 years,
she's been helping hearing
impaired youngsters.
I have an amazing group of
students here and I couldn't be
more proud of them, they real-
ly make my job easy,"
Westphal said. "This is truly an
honor. I represent a truly
amazing school. I'm stunned."
"This is so exciting," Moxley
said. "You are so deserving.
Thank you for everything you
do."
The sentiment was shared
by everyone involved in the
ceremonies, not just for the
accomplishments, but for all


the attributes that made these
ladies worthy of recognition.
"It is just the greatest day,"
said Education Foundation
Executive Director Carman
Cullen. "They cry, they clap,
the kids are excited, the teach-
ers are excited, most of the
time they are embarrassed
because they don't think of
themselves as something spe-
cial and they really are."
The finalists were selected
from the 44 nominees by a
panel of six judges based on
their scores on the FDOE
Teacher of the Year application
packet. District judges will
conduct site visits and inter-
views to select the winner,
who will be announced at the
Teacher. of the Year
Celebration on Feb. 27 at Lake
Receptions in Mount Dora.

Let's Go Dutch


ROXANNE BROWN

CLERMONT Nestled in
the heart of Oakley Plaza is
the Let's Go Dutch Cafe and
Wine Den-a place like no
other in Clermont.
"Everything is going great
and the best thing is that
not only are people starting
to find us, but people are
sending people to us,"
Owner Dutch Holt said.
"That's a pretty big compli-
ment in itself, not to men-
tion the very standard state-
ment we've been hearing
from many people who tell
us that 'this is just what
Clermont needs.'"
Let's Go Dutch, located at
1200 Oakley Seaver Drive
just west of the Home Depot
Shopping Plaza, opened Oct.
9, 2009.
Once inside or on the Let's
Go Dutch courtyard, Holt is
certain that each person will
be able to find something
savory on the menu to satis-
fy their pallets.
And whether it be steaks,
seafood, Italian, old
American, traditional or spe-
cialty dishes, Holt wants to
assure people of two things:
that everything they serve is
home made and that he and
his staff are on hand to
make their dining experi-
ence as special as possible.
If customers are interested,
Holt said he and his staff
enjoy sharing historical tid-
bits about the food they
serve.
After dinner, people may


relax in the wine den and
on Friday and Saturdays lis-
ten to live jazz music.
"That's what people come
in and do, eat then go to the
wine den to relax," 'Holt
said.
Holt said he decided to
open Going Dutch after
years of having to drive to
Orlando with his wife Kim
to find a unique place.
He said they would often
find themselves in a mid-
night traffic jam at the turn-
pike and State Road 50 on
their way back into
Clermont.
"Now, people are driving
in to visit us because we
have a lot of things people
just cannot find anywhere
in Clermont," Holt said.
"We have people coming in
for Winter Garden and The
Villages."
Holt calls his menu eclec-
tic, complete with steaks
grilled on a wood-assisted
hickory grill and seafood
that is hand picked fresh
twice a week.
Holt said that executive

Fearing the loss of an adopted child


Talking

With Tori


Ph.D
D. EAR TORI,


Because of nature my husband and I
cannot have children of our own, so
we are in adoption proceedings. The
child is a beautiful 18-month-old boy.
His father is nowhere to be found and
the mother is a drug addict. I have
been having nightmares every night
about someone coming and taking my
sweet baby from me. Can you help
sooth my nerves? It seems our state
puts the adopting parents through
such vigorous hell and is too quick to
hand a wonderful happy child back to
people who should have never been
allowed out of a hospital with a baby.
Signed,
Don't take my baby!
Dear Don't take my baby!,
I think the fears you have are normal
considering the circumstances. Most


adoptive parents have nervous feelings
about whether the adoption is going to
go through or become finalized. With
TV programs that highlight the cus-
tody battles between birth and adop-
tive parents it is no wonder that you
would be afraid of your baby being
taken from you. As hard as this sounds,
the best thing you can do is enjoy
every day that you do have with him
as though it could be your last. Life is
unpredictable and anyone of us has the
same chance of dying tomorrow that
he has of being reclaimed. The differ-
ence is thAt death is final and reclama-
tion can be fought legally. I think the
smart thing to do is to consult with
your attorney and find out what per-
centage of your fears are realistic and if
they came true, what course of action
could you take to get him back or pur-
sue another child. Information is a
great fear buster because you aren't just
dealing with your imagination, you are
getting facts. Even if you don't like the
facts you are getting, they are still
defining the limits in which you can
operate and that can be quite helpful.
You may find that you have more
parental rights than you realize, but
this understanding would come from
going over theadoption papers with
your attorney. As far as nerves go, take
relaxing baths with your husband and


1:,.** ^ -;*. PtW ^-*5-^ail&


remember that you two were a couple
before you were parents. If you let
yourself be consumed with being a
mother, your feais will infiltrate every
aspect of your life including your
dreams and you won't be much fun to.
be around. Get better at juggling the
many roles you have and do not allow
yourself to get tied up over one of
them. If you find that your nerves are
still a problem, seek professional coun-
seling. You should love your husband
first and the children you bring into
the house second. The marriage rela-
tionship was there first ard if you nur-
ture that, you will automatically create
the kind of loving stable home that
childrenneed. Children grow up and
move out. If you've done a good job as
a parent, they won't need you any-
more. Guess who is going to still be in
the house with you 'until death do us
part?' That's right, your man! Make
sure he still wants to be your man and
you don't drive him away by being
neurotic.

Shafer. "We were up five at the half
and led by as many as nine points in
the second half, but they kept the pres-


sure on the whole way."
That pressure came mainly from
Wildwood forward Ronisha Mitchell,
who led the Lady Wildcats with 19
points and for whom South Lake had
no easy answer.
"Mitchell was able to break down our
defense," Shafer said, "and so we start-
ed paying her a lot of attention. But
when we concentrated on her, we start-
ed getting into foul trouble."
Wildwood cut the lead to three in


the fourth quarter but was unable to
come closer the rest of the way.
With the win, the Eagles improved to
14-7 on the season. The team will trav-
el to.Springstead tonight for a 6 p.m.
game, 'then host Eustis for Senior Night
at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
"Mora has more than 1,000 points
for her career here at South Lake, and
is our all-time leading scorer. She is one
of the four seniors on the team who
will be honored," Shafer said.

Ifyou can do


better, then do it!

t amazes me how many quality coaches and officials
are in the stands at high-school sporting events.
None has ever lost a game or blown a call.
They have all the answers and are the first to call for a
coach's job or accuse officials and umpires of playing
favorites.
And yet, despite their self-proclaimed experience and
knowledge, very few of these grandstand coaches and
arbiters have walked a sideline or paced in a dugout with
a game on the line.
I never realized a $5 general admission ticket bought so
much intelligence.
Next time I go to a game, I'm plunking down 100
bucks for ducats.
With the kind of smarts that should buy me, I fix the
world's problems.
This current craze of bashing high-school coaches and
officials is disturbing to me and it should bother any-
one with a connection to prep sports.
Don't get me wrong ... if a fan buys a ticket, he or she
has the right to say what they want (within reason, of
course). But when every play is'questioned to the
point that someone constantly questions a coach or offi-
cial's intelligence things have gone too far.
This is one area of high-school sports that needs to be
cleaned up.
I began realizing that a few years ago at a South Sumter
football game. The Raiders were winning handily in the
fourth quarter and coach Inman Sherman called for a
play that was designed to keep the clock running.
One fan, who obviously felt the Raiders should be
adding to what was already a four-touchdown lead, began
voicing his displeasure.
"What kind of call is that?" the fan asked in a tone
loud enough to be heard by everyone. "That's why it's
time to find another coach!"
Thankfully, most of the South Sumter fanbase and
school administration didn't agree and Sherman lead the
Raiders to the state championship game the following
season.
I just shook my head and walked farther down the side-
lines.
And I hear the same thing in Leesburg, Mount Dora,
Umatilla, South Lake ... in other words, at every school in
every corner of Lake and Sumter counties.
Where were these geniuses when coaches began build-
ing their staffs? If these people are the next version of
Paul "Bear" Bryant, Joe Paterno, or even John Wooden
and Joe Torre, since this scenario also goes on during bas-
ketball and baseball games, why aren't they on the side-
lines instead of buying tickets and sitting in the stands?
Of course, the reason is simple.
They aren't geniuses.
They're fans.
A little out of touch, perhaps, but fans, nonetheless.
Why do high-school coaches do what they do, opening
themselves up for public scorn and ridicule? What drives
them to work until until the wee hours of the morning
on school nights, watching videotape and developing

game plans?
It's certainly not for the money, consider-
ing that only a handful of high-school
coaches in the country do nothing but
coach.
Most are teachers by profession and
receive only a small stipend for the
headaches they get from coaching -
headaches that, more than likely, come from
dealing with parents who live vicariously
through their children.
"Why isn't little Johnny the starting quar-
terback and making all the plays?" parents
asks coaches.
Instead of telling the truth and dealing a
severe blow to the parents' ego, coaches find
a diplomatic way of saying, "We're glad little
Johnny is on the team and he works
extremely hard at practice, but he's just not
very good."
I don't know how they do it.
Coaches have a variety of reasons for tak-
ing the job. Some want to stay connected to
the game they played high school, while
others like helping young people become
better student-athletes.
Perhaps the best answer I've ever heard
came from East Ridge coach.Bud O'Hara,
who said he felt his job was to, "Help these
boys become better husbands and daddies."
The men and women who coach our chil-
dren should be commended for the job they
do. If we're not out there proving we can do
a better job, we shouldn't be trying to tear
them down.
And the same goes for officials. To hear
some parents, you'd think an officiating
crew got together before a game and decided
they were going to help a team win.
"Come on ref! Call it both ways," is the
cry I hear at virtually every game I attend.
Unbelievable.
It's too bad these same parents don't hear
what I hear. They might be surprised at how
often officials help players instead of calling
fouls, penalties or violations.
"Number 33, get out of the lane!"
"Watch that hand checking!"
Some even go to coaches on the sidelines
and tell them to warn their players about

something, before they blow their whistles.
All that goes unnoticed.
Let an official miss one call, however, and
you'd think the world as we know it, was
coming to an end.
Officials occasionally miss calls. It's that
simple. Most officials admit they blow a call
from time to time.
It happens.
They're human.
Contrary to what many people believe,
officials don't try to "even things out," with
make-up calls in other words, if they
make a bad call against one team,Fthey'll
create a call against the other team.
But the grandstand genuises, who don't
have the time or the moxie to put on the
uniform and get out there, never miss a call.
It's so easy to officiate a game from the top
row of the bleachers.
Try doing it from the baseline, with 10
bodies banging off one another and a 12-
foot wide lane that has to be monitored.
Or on a football field, with offensive line-
man trying to block, defensive lineman and
linebackers trying to pressure quarterbacks,
receivers and defensive backs battling for
receptions and interceptions, and running
backs looking for holes to squeeze through.
It's not easy, except for those who sit in
bleachers and complain about every call.
They never miss one.
Coaches and officials aren't paid what
they're worth. If they were, school districts
would go broke.
They also don't deserve the verbal abuse
they get.
Like my parents used to tell me, "If you're
not going to help, don't say anything."
That doesn't mean you shouldn't go to a
game and cheer for the hometown team.
Go and cheer until your throat hurts.
But, if your reason for going to a game is
simply to blast the coach or chastise the offi-
cials, and you're not going to get down on
the field and show us how it's done, stay
home.
Don't ruin a good time for everyone else.

LOCAL PAIR SIGNS WITH


LAKE-SUMTER CC


IMMUNITY COLLEGE


Eustis High School baseball standout Mitch Okey (right) and East Ridge's Alex Arellano signed national
letters of intent recently to attend Lake-Sumter Community College. Okey and Arellano signed during a
ceremony in the Everett Kelly Convocation Center at LSCC'S Leesburg campus. "We offered Mitch (a
scholarship) at the end of his junior year not really knowing whether or not we had a shot at him,:' said
LSCC baseball coach Rich Billings "Fortunately for us, everything played out just as we hoped it would.
Mitch will play 2nd base for us but he is very versatile. He can also play short and 3rd. He is the type of
player that you know you.can depend on. He shows up to the ballpark every day and gets the job done
just like his older brother Chase. He works extremely hard and he plays even harder. He will be a very
exciting player to watch over the next two years here at LSCC." Billings said Arellano could provide the
Lakers with flexibility in the infield. "Alex is a player that we didn't know much about until this fall," Billings
said. "He was at (Orlando) Bishop Moore last year as a junior and transferred back to East Ridge for his
senior year. Alex is a corner infielder who will bring some big time offense to our lineup. He will most likely
hit somewhere in the middle of the order. We aren't sure yet whether we are going to use him at 3rd or
1st but we know he can swing the bat. He also understands the importance of his performance in the
classroom. Alex will graduate from East Ridge with a grade-point average better than 3.0. We have found
a young man who has the ability to make an immediate impact. Coming from programs like Bishop Moore
and East Ridge, Alex expects success. He knows how to win and these are the types of young men that
we have to get if we are going to take the next step as a program."

MOUNT DORA OPENS NINE-


HOLE DISC GOLF COURSE


PHOTO PROVIDED BY JESSICA MONCZKA
Former Disc Golf World Champion Gregg Hosfeld teaches Leanna Callaghan of Maryland how to throw a
disc. Mount Dora celebrated the opening of its new disc golf course at Lincoln Avenue Park last Sunday.


BENJAMIN ROODE
Correspondent
It's kind of difficult to find
Mount. Dora's newest recre-
ation option.
A stand of live oak trees just
down the street from Mount
Dora Middle School helps hide
nine short metal poles. Their
yellow crowns drape chained
cages to form the nine differ-
ent disc golf holes at Mount
Dora's new disc golf course.
As course designer and 1987
World Champion Gregg
Hosfeld will tell you, nature
and the outdoors are impor-
tant to disc golfers. Courses
shouldn't need as much land-
scaping and bulldozing as ball
golf courses or baseball fields.
Trees, shrubs and hills act as
natural
bunkers and hazards.
"It has a very low ecological
impact," Hosfeld said. "Unlike
something like a ball court or a
tennis field... being a low eco-
logical impact sport, that is
attractive."
Such balance is something
Mount Dora Parks and
Recreation officials hope
brings people out to try the
new sport, which provides a
new approach to outdoors
activity.


The city Sunday unveiled its
new disc golf course at Lincoln
Avenue Park on Mount Dora's
west side, complete with clin-
ics on how to play the game
and an appearance from a 12-
time world champion in the
sport.
But a visit from Ken Climo,
who some regard as the Tiger
Woods of disc golf, shouldn't
be a surprise. The Clearwater
residents does as much as he
can to help spread the sport
and grow its popularity across
the country.
Disc golf is played like its
more popular club-and-ball
counterpart.
Players tee off with special
driver discs and attempt to get
their final, putter disc into the
hole in as'few strokes as possi-
ble.
Courses are designed like
standard golf courses. The
sport stages tournaments
around the world.
Mount Dora's course, if pop-
ular enough, will become a
permanent part of the 90-acre
recreational complex, said
Mount Dora Parks and
Recreation Director John Burt.
He' noticed at least seven dif-
ferent groups golfing the day
before the event, a good sign
for the prospects of the park

and a sign that the desire is
there.
"It's called recreation by pre-
scription," Burt said. "People
bring you their need, and you
fill it."
Hosfeld, who has beeq
designing courses around the
state and country, said Central
Florida is a prime growth spor(
for the sport. Mount Dora, in
particular, looked like a good
spot to try and grow the sport's
popularity, especially with a
middle school nearby.
"The hardest part about get-
ting a course in the ground in
an area that doesn't have a
course is there's no perceived
need for it," Hosfeld said.
"What we do is we show them
that if they build it, they will
come. ,
"It is a game that any child
can play alongside their par-
ent," he added.
Mount Dora is leasing its 9:
hole course for the next six
months. According to Burt;
the near-$600 price tag is 4
small fee to see if the sport is as
popular in the area as Hosfeld
says.
And non-traditional sports
such as disc golf can help
attract new outdoors enthusi-
asts that may not have taken
advantage of other city recre-
ation facilities, Burt said.
"We want to encourage
healthy participation," he
added.
About two dozen veteran
players and first-timers
showed up at Sunday's festivi-
ties to enjoy donuts and tech;
nique clinics from Climo and
Hosfeld and to try for a free
golfing disc.

Chairman Farewell
Greetings and Happy Holidays!


SHere it is December already and the
Holidays are upon us. It's hard for me to
believe that my year as your Chair is draw-
ing to a close. While we still face difficult
times, I think if we look back to January
2009, we can at least point to some indi-
cators that give us reason to hope that the
S--. worst is behind us.
South Lake truly has a bright and exciting
future and your Chamber staff and Board
have worked tirelessly to help move our
community forward. Your Chamber is now
recognized as the primary advocate and
voice for business and economic develop-
ment in South Lake. We play a leadership
role in Lake County's Chamber Alliance
Sand the Economic Development Advisory
Council. Thanks to the work of Public
Policy and Economic Development
Committee Chairs John Moore and Mike
Bucher, we have shared our needs and concerns with government leaders from the city, county,
regional and even the state level.
Our role in community development is best exemplified by our work in support of education. Our
Annual Teacher Appreciation Breakfast under Lucy Hage's leadership and the School Supplies Drive
were tremendous successes. Your generosity in these tough times was most impressive.
Finally, I must say a big thank you to Ray San Fratello and our Chamber staff. They have faced the
challenges and continue to provide superior service and support for our Board and all of our members
- moving the South Lake Chamber forward in our Mission. My thanks to all our volunteers and mem-
bers for making our Chamber the best around!
May you and yours enjoy a Happy and Blessed Holiday Season!
Chuck Mojock

Administration completes

implementation of

initiative to support

state and local housing

finance aghcies
Initiative Expands Resources for
Working Families to Access Affordable
Rental Housing and Home Ownership

WASHINGTON The U.S. Department of
the Treasury, together with the Department
of Housing and Urban Development (HUD),
and the Federal Housing Finance Agency
(FHFA) have announced the completion of
all transactions under the recently-intro-
duced state and local Housing Finance
Agency (HFA) Initiative, a key element of
the Obama Administration's Homeowner
Affordability and Stability Plan..
With these transactions, the Obama
Administration helps support low mortgage
rates and expands resources for low and
middle income borrowers to purchase or
rent homes that are affordable over the long
term. Government Sponsored Enterprises
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac played a cen-
tral role in both Initiative design and trans-
action execution. The HFA Initiative is
expected to come at no cost to taxpayers.
Through more than 90 participating HFAs,
the HFA Initiative will make affordable
financing available to hundreds of thou-
sands of new homebuyers and existing
homeowners, as well as support the develop-
ment and rehabilitation of multi-family
rental properties. Mortgages can be used to
purchase or rehabilitate homes, as well as
refinance existing mortgages at more afford-
able rates. Participating HFAs are also
expected to provide affordable multifamily
loans that will help keep rents affordable for
tens of thousands of renters. Participating
state and local agencies have already begun
providing affordable mortgages financed
through the HFA Initiative.
"Supporting the work of state and local
:HFAs is critical to the Administration's
:broader initiative to stabilize the housing
:Market, which is helping to keep mortgage
:rates low and mortgage finance flowing for
:American households across the country,"
:said Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner.
: "The assistance provided under the HFA
:Ihitiative will help maintain the viability of
*state and local HFAs which play key roles in
,HUD's efforts to promote expanded access to
'


affordable rental housing and serve as
important players in making homeowner-
ship possible for hardworking Americans
who otherwise would not be able to pur-
chase or remain in their homes," said HUD
.Secretary Shaun Donovan.
"Working together we were able to address
the stresses on HFAs created by the housing
market turmoil," said FHFA Acting Director
Edward J. DeMarco. "The Enterprises played
a critical role, consistent with their mission
and on commercially reasonable terms.
Their successful execution of over 125 sepa-
rate transactions, all in the final month of
2009, was an impressive achievement."
"Given our long-standing partnership with
state and local HFAs, we were able to move
quickly to support the Administration's ini-
tiative, which is targeted directly at afford-
able housing for America's working families,"
said Michael J. Williams, Fannie Mae
President and CEO. "By creating $23 billion
in much-needed, new housing capital for
the housing finance system, this initiative
will enable the HFAs to return to the level of
market liquidity they have provided histori-
cally."
"We applaud the successful completion of
the HFA Initiative. Freddie Mac is proud to
provide an essential financial link to the
'nation's state and local HFAs that will sup-
port affordable homeownership and rental
housing and help stimulate America's hous-
ing markets," said Freddie Mac CEO Ed
Haldeman.
Local and State Impact of the Initiative
"These bond proceeds, combined with the
$7.7 billion in retail housing bonds the
Initiative requires state HFAs to issue, will
allow HFAs to finance more than 200,000
affordable homes, while generating jobs and
tax revenue for the economy," said Susan
Dewey, president of the National Council of
State Housing Agencies (NCSHA) and execu-
tive director of the Virginia Housing
Development Authority. "HFAs are already
putting these resources to work to provide
first-time home buyer mortgages and
finance rental housing," Dewey added.
"The National Association of Local
Housing Finance Agencies (NALHFA)
applauds the Treasury, Federal Housing
Finance Agency, and especially the
Government-Sponsored Enterprises for put-
ting together, in a nearly impossible time
frame, this vital bond purchase program and
liquidity facility. It will give participating
local housing finance agencies the ability to
significantly expand homeownership and
rental housing opportunities for their lower
income households," said NALHFA President
Patricia Braynon, Executive Director of the
Miami-Dade Housing Finance Authority.
"The Treasury Initiative will provide loans
to approximately 11,000 home buyers in
Pennsylvania, as well as putting our home
builders back to work," said Executive
Director of the Pennsylvania Housing
Finance Agency Brian Hudson. "I believe a
new and stronger partnership has been
formed between the Administration, the
GSEs, and state HFAs to deliver affordable
housing across the nation."
"As one of many HFAs that have partici-
pated in the Administration's HFA Initiative,
the Idaho Housing and Finance Association
has been able to once again access the tax-
exempt bond markets for affordable home-
ownership lending capital," said President
and Executive Director of the Idaho Housing
and Finance Association Gerald Hunter.
"Many prospective home buyers will be able
to purchase homes because of this financing
opportunity. And, it comes at a time when
our economy needs all the assistance it can
get. We appreciate the professional and
focused efforts by the many staff members
at Treasury, HUD, FHFA, Fannie Mae, and
Freddie Mac to make this opportunity avail-.
able for our citizens."
Background on the HFA Initiative
On October 19, the Treasury announced a
new initiative for state and local HFAs to
help support low mortgage rates and expand
resources for low and middle income bor-
rowers to purchase or rent homes that are
I


affordable over the long term. Following up
on the intent to support HFAs first outlined
in February under the Homeowner
Affordability and Stability Plan, the
Administration's Initiative has two parts: a
New Issue Bond Program (NIBP) to support
new lending by HFAs and a Temporary
Credit and Liquidity Program (TCLP) to
improve the access of HFAs to liquidity for
outstanding HFA bonds.
The New Issue Bond Program (NIBP)
The New Issue Bond Program (NIBP) pro-
vided temporary financing for HFAs to issue
new housing bonds. Treasury purchased
securities of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac
backed by these new housing bonds. With
these investments, the HFAs have issued an
amount of new housing bonds equal to
what they are authorized to issue with the
allocations provided them by Congress but
have been unable to issue given the current
challenges in housing and related markets.
The program may support up to several hun-
dred thousand new mortgages to first time
homebuyers this coming year, as well as refi-
nancing opportunities to put at-risk, but
responsible and performing, borrowers into
more sustainable mortgages. The NIBP will
also support development of tens of thou-
sands of new rental housing units for work-
ing families.
The Temporary Credit and Liquidity
Program (TCLP)
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are adminis-
tering a Temporary Credit and Liquidity
Program (TCLP) for HFAs to help relieve cur-
rent financial strains and enable them to
continue to serve their important role in
providing housing resources to working fam-
ilies. Treasury has agreed to purchase a par-
ticipation interest in the Temporary Credit
and Liquidity Facilities (TCLFs) provided to
HFAs under the program, providing a credit
and liquidity backstop. The TCLP-provides
HFAs with temporary credit and liquidity
facilities to help the HFAs maintain their
financial health and preserve the viability of
the HFA infrastructure so that HFAs can con-
tinue their Congressionally supported role in
helping provide affordable mortgage credit
to low and moderate income Americans, as
well as continue their other important activ-
ities in communities.
Over 90 state and local HFAs representing
49 states participated in the NIBP for an
aggregate total new issuance of $15.3 billion.
Twelve HFAs participated in the TCLP for an
aggregate total usage of $8.2 billion. The
Initiative is expected to come at no cost to
the taxpayers and to the Government
Sponsored Enterprises

Initiative visit www.financialstability.gov.

Median price edges up for
the month; closings and
pending soar for the year
ORLANDO Members of the Orlando
Regional REALTOR@ Association closed
51.83 percent more homes in December of
this year than last, bringing year-to-date
Orlando area sales to 59.31 percent above
2008. In addition, pending sales (homes
with purchase contracts but awaiting com-
pletion of the closing process) finished out
the year a whopping 150.02 percent above
2008.
ORRA Chairman of the Board Kathleen
Gallagher McIver, RE/MAX Town & Country
Realty, expects another notable gain in sales
activity as home buyers respond to the
recently extended and expanded tax credit.
"In addition," she explains, "the fact that
pending home sales are so comfortably
above year-ago levels shows the market has
gained sufficient momentum on its own. We
expect yet another surge in the spring as
more homebuyers take advantage of afford-
able housing conditions before the tax credit
expires."
There were 2,194 closings in December,
just about double the number of those that
took place in December 2008 (1,455). Of
those December sales, 67.37 percent of the


homes were either bank-owned (961) or
short sales (517). The remaining (716) "nor-
mal" sales made up 32.63 percent.
There is currently more than double the
number of pending sales (8,163) than in
December of last year (3,265). A total of
2,984 sales contracts were newly filed in the
month of December, which is a jump of
59.49 percent compared to December 2008
(1,871).
The median price of all existing homes
combined sold in December 2009 increased
1.63 percent to $125,000 from the $123,000
recorded in November 2009. December
2009's median price is a decrease of 25.37
percent compared to December 2008s medi-
an of $167;500.
The $125,000 median price encompasses
all types of sales situations and home types;
the tremendous number of bank-owned and
short sales plus all those very low-priced
condo sales drives the overall median
price down. The median price for "normal"
sales is $179,950, a 1.5 percent increase from
previous month. The median price for bank-
owned sales is $82,000, down 1.50 percent
from last month's $83,250, and the median
price for short sales is $134,600, up 10.33
percent from last month's $122,000.
The Orlando affordability index decreased
about five percentage points to 204.07 per-
cent in December. (An affordability index of
99 percent means that buyers earning the
state-reported median income are 1 percent
short of the income necessary to purchase a
median-priced home. Conversely, an afford-
ability index that is over 100 means that
median-income earners make more than is
necessary to qualify for a median-priced
home.) Buyers who earn the reported medi-
an income of $52,763 can qualify to pur-
chase one of 8,753 homes in Orange and
Seminole counties currently listed in the
local multiple listing service for $255,086 or
less.
First-time homebuyer affordability in
December decreased approximately three
percent points to 145.12 percent. First-time
buyers who earn the reported median
income of $35,879 can qualify to purchase
one of 5,593 homes in Orange and Seminole
counties currently listed in the local multi-
ple listing service for $154,185 or less.
Homes of all types spent an average of 91
days on the market before coming under
contract in December 2009, and the average
home sold for 93.72 percent of its listing
price. In December 2008 those numbers
were 107 and 92.83 percent, respectively.
The area's average interest rate increased in
December to 5.03 percent.
Inventory
There are currently 15,549 homes avail-
able for purchase through the MLS.
Inventory decreased by 453 homes from
November 2009, which means that 453
more homes left the market than entered
the market. Compared to last year, the
December 2009 inventory level is 30.97 per-
cent lower than it was in December 2008
(22,524).
The inventory level's 7.09-month supply
for December is slightly above the
November level, which was 6.87 (October's
6.79 level was lowest since July 2006).
Increased sales activity has led inventory
months-of-supply to decline by 67.08 per-
cent since January 2009, when months of
supply clocked in at 21.54.
There are 11,446 single-family homes cur-
rently listed in the MLS, a number that is
4,974 (30.29 percent) less than in December
of last year. As usual, most homes (1,311) are
listed in the $200,000-$250,000 price range.
Condos currently make up 2,759 offerings in
the MLS, while duplexes/town homes/villas
make up the remaining 1,344. Most condos
by far (746) are priced below $50,000; the
majority of duplexes/town homes/villas
(168) are listed in the $120,000-$140,000
price category.
Condos and Town Homes/Duplexes/Villas
The sales of condos in the Orlando area
increased by 163.87 percent in December

Resourceful renovation: How to redo the kitchen


MICHELE BESCHEN
Scripps HO':arcd Newvs Se r. i
We kicked off the new
year with a.home-renova-
tion project that has
renewed my enthusiasm for
the do-it-yourself life.
Even as someone who has
been a DIY advocate and
enthusiast all my life, I still
get blown away by the ful-
fillment that comes from
doing things myself when
I'm knee-deep in a big proj-
ect.
The project we're currently
tackling is the kitchen. We


needed to remove a wall to
open the space up, and we're
being as efficient with the
transformation as possible to
make the space more rustic
while challenging ourselves
to work creatively with what
we have. The deconstruction
has been careful and
thoughtful so that every-
thing that can be reused and
put back will be.
I cringe when I see home-
renovation shows making
entertainment out of care-
less deconstruction when
most of the things you see.
them destroying could be

~.-rl~--


reworked and reused. So
many people just back a
trash bin up to the door and
toss what they're taking out.
But with fresh eves and a
sense of resourcefulness, it's
amazing to see the amount
of material that can be sal-
vaged and reused.

2x4s
It takes extra time and
effort to remove all the nails
and such, but it is time well
spent. For any of the pieces
that don't come apart clean-
1y, just cut off the jagged
edges to square up the
boards and throw the jagged
edges in the firewood pile.
This lumber will come in
handy with the additional
things we're building, and
we'll be using some of the
slices for the end-grain floor-
ing that will be created out
of other salvaged lumber.

Plumbing
We had to remove the
plumbing that was coming
up out of the floor and will
be reconfiguring it elsewhere


in the room. There were
some leftover pieces of cop-
per pipe that couldn't be
reused for plumbing purpos-
es, but they could be cut
down and used in the mak-
ing of trellises for the gar-
den, stakes for garden art or
picture frames. Even the
water spigots can be reused
in the garden.

Flooring
We used the circular saw
to remove the floor in sec-
tions. It was covered in
linoleum, and tnese pieces
will make awesome work
surfaces for the studio and
workshops. We smoothed
the edges to square things
up and freshened them with
a new coat of paint. We
added some cork or felt pads
to the underside and they're
ready to use. Instead of look-
ing for a piece of cardboard
to work on, these will work
even better and be longer
lasting.

Drywall
With the line of work that


I'm in, I always have a need
for a "canvas." Some of the
larger pieces that were
removed from the wall were
cut and shaped into man-
ageable pieces, primed, and
are easy to stack and ready
to use. They make fabulous
painting surfaces for test
samples, kids' projects and
more.

Wiring/Electrical Boxes
The boxes and wiring we
removed from the wall were
in good shape, so there's no
reason not to reuse them
where we'll be running some
additional electrical work.
What I haven't figured out a
use for is all the wire nails,
staples and screws that were
removed.

Cupboards
Most of the cupboards will
get reworked and reused. We
will just give them a new
treatment to change up the
look, reconfigure and build
some new additions.

Appliances


I recently heard someone
say that the best green pur-
chase is the one not taken,
so unless they don't work or
are ridiculously inefficient,
the appliances will also get
reused. We can even experi-
ment with some creative
cabinetry to disguise them.
It is so exciting to think
that you can give yourself a
fresh, new-looking space
using the old stuff. That's
the beauty of being able to
do things yourself. It does
take some extra time and
effort, but every little bit we
can do to be more thought-
ful and resourceful about the
process makes a difference.
It feels good and it makes
the entire process less over-
whelming, a lot tidier and
much, much easier on the
budget.

projects can be found at

can be contacted via e-mail:

Above: it takes extra time and effort to remove all the nails from the
flooring before you start a project.


Right: If the electrical boxes and wiring are in good shape, there's no
reason not to reuse them.

Choosing a color palette


HOME AND GARDEN
TELEVISION
A continuing compendi-
um of tips and tricks.from
Home & Garden Television:
Choosing a color palette
can be a difficult task, but
set yourself up for success by
knowing the basics of the
color wheel and how differ-
ent schemes work.
Follow the color princi-
ple of 60-30-10 to create an
aesthetically pleasing color
scheme. Divide your color
choices into percentages: 60
percent is a dominant color,
30 percent is a secondary
color and 10 percent is the
accent color.
Always consider how


lighting will affect color
choices. Before finalizing
your selections, see how
each color will look in the
room during different times
of the day.
While beige is a neu-
tral, shades of your favorite
colors can also act as neu-
trals in your room. A neutral
just needs to be a balance of
warm and cool tones, like a
Soft shade of red in a living
room.
While a mixture of col-
ors can be beautiful, too
many or the wrong shades
together can create a disas-
trous look. Follow a favorite
color scheme, like mono-
chromatic or complementa-


ry, and stick with the 60-30-
10 rule to create the perfect
palette.
Adding a trendy color
to a room's palette can be
-the fresh take you need, but
choose where you use the
newcomer wisely. Wall col-
ors and accessories can be
easily switched out, but
when purchasing furniture,
choose shades that will
stand the test of time.
Pink isn't just for girls
and blue isn't only for boys
anymore. Bring shades.that
are usually marked for gen-
der-specific rooms into the
living areas of your home.

Rethink and then refurbish

Say you're considering some decorating
updates for your home, but you think most
of the ideas you have are unaffordable. All
you have to do is rethink the way you
accomplish those changes. Here are some
suggestions.
Refurbish rather than replace some of
those items in your home. If your couch is
showing some wear and tear, rather than
replacing it, consider reupholstering it.
Granted, in many cases, reupholstering is as
expensive as replacing, but look for bargain
fabrics and you should be able to recover the
furniture with less cash spent than buying
new furnishings.
Consider visiting flea markets and going
to yard sales. You might find the right dress-
er or dining-room table or perhaps the right
cocktail table that works for your home and
just needs to be refinished. There is a certain
charm in old furniture that can add appeal
to your home.
Let's talk about that dining area a bit
more. Sometimes the table is in pretty good
condition, but the chairs are a mess from
spilled wine or chocolaty finger marks that
just don't seem to come off no matter how
many upholstery cleaners you've tried.
Perhaps it is time to get new chairs. Two
choices: 1) If the chairs are tabric-based,
again you might consider reupholstering. 2)
If the chairs are just unacceptable, purchase
new ones. Again, try looking around resale
shops or flea markets. Plus, buying just the
chairs instead of a complete dining-ropm set


won't break the bank.
Continuing on that idea, mixing and
matching can make for interesting decor.
Not everything has to come from the same
furniture set. In fact, the look can be more
personalized and inviting when unexpected
combinations are put together. So when you
see that coveted nightstand on sale, go for it
even if it is not from the same bedroom
suite that you have.
Do the bathroom mirrors seem to have
that creeping crud around the edges?
Replacing the mirror isn't totally unafford-
able, but even less expensive is putting a
wood frame around it. The frame can be as
fancy or as simple as the decor in the bath-
room requires, and you can purchase the
materials at a hardware store. Paint to the
color that best suits the room. There is also
something called MirrorMate for premade
frames. Check out www.mirrormate.com for
more information.
Of course, anything you can do yourself
instead of hiring a professional will cost you
less. But if you really aren't the handyman
type, consider getting some help. Repainting
a room, perhaps, would be an easy, do-it-
yourself job and one that would certainly
refresh the room. Be sure you know your
limits, though. Don't venture into refurbish-
ing something you aren't sure exactly how
to handle, because it could end up costing
you much more in the long run.

This neighborhood glows with colorful landscape


DIANA NELSON JONES
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Like most children, Randy
Gilson grew up seeing himself
through the eyes of others. He was
"a funny-looking little kid" whose
family was poor and who made
C's, D's and E's in school.
But he kept the Randy he would
become safe inside, and when he
found the Central North Side
neighborhood in Pittsburgh in the
early 1980s, he says, "I replanted
myself."
To take his oft-used gardening
metaphors a step further, he blos-
somed, and with everything he
does, he makes his neighborhood
more colorful.
When the "Today" show found
him serving breakfast at the
Downtown Westin late last fall, he
was doing his Randy magic on
them -- displaying his natural exu-
berance -- without knowing they
were the camera crew come to
spend the day with him. "Today"
correspondent Amy Robach told
her audience that her mother, on
whom Randy had once waited,
told her she had to do a story on
this guy. The segment ran Dec. 30.
After it aired, he said he was
swamped with congratulations
"from people all over the world."
An irrepressible hugger, Gilson
can be a waterfall when you only
need a sip. His neighbors chuckle
and poke fun at him, usually lov-
ingly, and hug him back, but his
effervescence spills beyond his
neighborhood.
"I say to every customer,
'Everyone is delightful here. You
will love our city.'"
After finding out their interests,
he recommends places to visit. "I
say, 'If you get lost, look for some-
one with a smile. If it's not on
their lips, look in their eyes."
SHe sees everyone as delightful
because of a hard resolve to
remake the world. He sees beauty,
joy and love where others see pot-
holes, buckled sidewalks and peo-
ple in dark coats. His exuberance
Comes off as unappraising, but
Gilson, who has worked as a waiter
tnost of his adult life, has made
savvy investments and scavenged
artfully to create his world. It now
centers around a childlike wonder-
land he calls -- and increasing


Randy Gilson on his decorative property, which he calls "Randyland."


numbers of tourists know as --
Randyland.
He has amassed properties into a
cacophony of color. Everything.
that can be painted is painted.
There are sculptures of bugs on the
buildings, murals, polka dots and
stripes, pink and purple trim on
soffit and fascia and moulding,
plastic geese in a flower bed, pic-
ture maps on the side of one build-
ing and old street and retail signs.
Gilson started sowing his world
in 1982. The neighborhood had
not turned the corner on blight.
"I had a $1,000 unemployment
check, and I said, 'Y'know what?
All these vacant homes? I want to
make them look nice.
"So I went out and bought 20
whiskey barrels for $9.99 each and
some soil and shrubs and flowers
and I asked for donations so we
could have a street party. I did bar-
rel by barrel, block by block."
With appearances on local and
national TV and scenes in a docu-
mentary, "The Spirit of Pittsburgh,"


Gilson now has moderate local
fame. His serious contributions are
sometimes overshadowed by a
gushing audacity with which he
jumps grandly into projects and
makes it up as he goes along. The
media often make it seem as if he
single-handedly brought the neigh-
borhood around. He is quick to
credit the many activists before
and concurrent with him.
Marirose Radelet, a longtime resi-
dent who was active in the com-
munity gardens when Gilson
brought his boombox in, says they
had several run-ins. "I didn't want
a barrel, and he could not under-
stand that. I asked him to turn the
boombox off; I wanted to listen to
the birds.
"He has come around to consid-
ering the possibility that people
can have different views. And I
have come to appreciate him. We
take people who visit us to see his
place, and we all say, 'Holy cow,
look at that!'
"He has made people think in a


different way. He was a pioneer in
beautification for his neighbor-
hood, and it is his neighborhood,"
she said, laughing.
Joan Kimmel, a co-owner of the
Urban Gardener nursery and one
of many he ejected from the com-
munity garden because he became
a self-described weeding tsar, said,
"He bankrolled all this. All the stuff
that's weird and interesting in the
garden is his, and he gardened
every vacant tree well. He's the one
who got the whiskey barrels and
made sure every one had at least a
juniper."
"The one ingredient in our house
was love," Gilson says of his '
upbringing in the Pittsburgh sub-
urb of Homestead. His mother set-
tled there.with her six children
after fleeing their father, who
abused her. She was a Salvation
Army minister who could afford
just two or three little things for
each kid at Christmas, on the order
of socks.
"I had to invent games, 'cause I


knew I was never going to have
good toys," said Gilson. "I used to
build forts. That's what the com-
munity gardens reminded me of
because of the fences around
them."
As many houses in the Central
North Side were gutted for rehab,
Gilson would get the jump on
items left in the alley on garbage
day.
"These were treasures, pieces of a
puzzle. Different sizes and materi-
als. Cut stones, parts of architec-
ture. People would say, 'Please take
it!' "
He began claiming the commu-
nity garden because of the many
weedy spaces, he said. He eventual-
ly carved footpaths, broadened
plots and placed architectural
pieces as accents.
"People said, 'You can't come in
here and do whatever you want,'
so I said I would do the parts that
weren't done. I cleaned plots for
people, I rototilled, I hauled com-
post and people would give me
$10, but no pne would help me.
Or they would help for an hour
and see how hard it was and
leave."
Gardening became an obsession,
he admits.
"I told one guy, 'You have to
weed. Other gardeners are com-
plaining,' and he said, 'It's my plot;
you can't tell me what to do,' and I
said, 'If you don't weed, I'm taking
your stuff out and putting it on
your doorstep.'
"I caught people raiding the gar-
den. They said, 'We thought it was
free.' I said, 'You are never welcome
back here again because you do
not respect gardeners.'"
Lately, he.said, he has backed
away. "It's like, 'Randy, there are so
many cool people in the gardens,
you don't have to be a tsar any-
more.' "
But he is too rooted ever to leave
the neighborhood, he said. "I love
it here," he whispers. "It was the
architecture at first, but the people
are No. 1 now. It's eclectic, it's con-
fident, all ages, all incomes, all col-
ors and dreamers. All I did was
make it fun."

Putting a price tag on


poetry: Is it worth much?


HELAINE FENDELMAN AND JOE ROSSON
Scripps Howard News Service
Dear Helaine and Joe: I've enclosed a
series of photographs of a book I found at
Goodwill for $5. It is titled "The Fireside
Encyclopedia of Poetry" and subtitled
"Comprising the Best Poems of the Most
Famous Writers, English and American."
Henry T. Coates compiled and edited the
book, published by Porter & Coates in
Philadelphia. The only date I can find is
1878 or 1879. Does it have any real value?
- M.L., Evansville, Ind.

Dear M.L.: Old books are endlessly fasci-
nating, but few have any great monetary
value. Current collectors tend to focus on
first editions, books with their original dust
jackets (yes, in some cases, reproductions of
these jackets are available) and books auto-
graphed by their authors.
There are many types of books that are
unlikely to be valuable, including school-
books and the most common book on the
planet the Bible. The rule for Bibles: In
order to be valuable, the particular example
should have been printed in America before
the year 1800 or in Europe before 1700.
There are some notable exceptions, but this
is a guideline worth keeping in mind.
Still another grouping of books that are
unlikely to have remarkable value are
anthologies or collections of literary works,
such as short stories and poems. Collectors
tend to prefer these works in their first-edi-
tion state rather than the later reprints that
often appear in anthologies.
But we digress.
Founded by Robert Porter and Charles
Davis in 1848, the Davis & Porter Co. spe-


cialized in publishing trade and art books.
Henry T. Coates (1843-1910) joined the firm
in 1866, and it became Davis, Porter &
Coates; in 1867, Davis.left, and the firm was
renamed Porter & Coates. When Robert
Porter left in 1895, the publishing house
became Henry T. Coates & Co. And when
Coates retired in 1904, he sold the business
to the John C. Winston Co.
Got all that?
There's more: Henry T. Coates & Co. is
probably most famous for publishing Home
and Garden magazine.
In any case, the book in today's question
appears to be the first edition, and it should
have 1,002 pages -- later editions (such as
the 28th edition in 1888) have 1,016 pages.
There should be marbled end papers, and
the example belonging to M.L. appears to
have a repaired leather-covered board with
tape attached to the spine.
By the way, using tape on a book is a car-
dinal sin that distresses book enthusiasts.
Such an amateur repair job should be avoid-
ed, as the use of tape will greatly devalue a
book.
Other than the tape, this book appears to
be in decent shape, though the edges of the
bindings are bumped and the surfaces are
greatly worn. The charming engraving of
."Izaak Walton Fishing" shows only a little
discoloration along the top edge.
Given the condition of this book, we feel
it has an insurance-replacement value in the
$35-$50 range not bad for a $5 purchase.
Helaine Fendelman and Joe Rosson are the authors
of "Price It Yourself' (HarperResource, $19.95).

Taking baby steps on how to get organized


SARAH WELCH AND ALICIA
ROCKMORE
getbuttonedup.com
Creating room to breathe
is a crucial step to living a
more organized life. De-clut-
tering is typically one of the
top three New Year's resolu-
tions each year. It's too bad
that so many people get
frustrated and give up before
they've really made much
progress. Maybe this statistic
from the National
Association of Professional
Organizers might help:
Simply getting rid of clutter
eliminates 40 percent of
housework in the average
home. Imagine that! Getting
rid of clutter can cut your
housework by nearly half!
Dealing with clutter can also
help you rein in unnecessary
spending. When your space
is overflowing with items
you don't need or use, it's
harder to find items you
need but already have, so
you waste money "replacing"
them br buying organiza-
tional tools or even profes-
sional assistance to help you
wrangle all that junk. Let's
make 2010 the year you get
one step ahead of the clut-
ter. The key: baby steps.

Sarah on "Ditch the Guilt":
Clutter is a major stressor.
Whenever we interview peo-
ple about clutter, they use
words like "overwhelmed,"
"nightmare" and "guilty" to
describe how they feel about
the issue. Those descriptors


HOLLIE SEHRT AND CINDY RODRIGUEZ / SHNS ILLUSTRATION
Aiming to de-clutter and get organized is usually one of the top three
New Year's i',- :l.ir


carry a lot of weight and are
capable of sapping anyone
of a substantial amount of
energy and joie de vivre.
We're hugely in favor of
ditching the guilt. Clutter
simply accumulates. If you
don't have systems in place
to deal with it on a regular
basis, then it's going to be a
problem. So rather than lose
sleep or precious energy and
good will over it, we say,
learn why it accumulates
and how to stay on top of it,
using shortcuts whenever
you can.


Alicia on "Right-Size the
Problem":
One major reason people
let clutter accumulate is that
they think it will take a lot
longer to deal with than it
actually does. As a matter of
fact, Sarah.actually procrasti-
nated for months on clean-
ing up her desk, but when
she finally tackled it, it only
took her 20 minutes to deal
with it. Check out the video
of how she took her desk
from disaster to desirable at
http://www.youtube.com/bu
ttonedupinc#p/a/u/2/WgOC


Molds, mildews must have moisture


pI3S8Uw. Don't let your fear
of how long it will take to
deal with clutter get in the
way of doing something
about it now.
Here are a few more ways
to take baby steps toward
getting organized in the
coming year.
1. Establish a Daily
Clutter-Busting Routine.
Once established, simple
routines take almost no
effort and are incredibly
effective at keeping clutter at
bay. For a lot of people, a
simple five-minute clutter-
scan and cleanup routine
right before you head to bed
works wonders. For others, a
routine 15-minute clutter-
busting session on Saturday
mornings does the trick. Just
decide on one routine that
you can fit into your daily
or weekly schedule and start
implementing it this week.
2. Establish Some Rules
About Clutter. If you make
rules for dealing with clutter,
dealing with the inevitable
onslaught becomes a mere
reflex. There are two kinds
of rules you can put in
place: (1) rules about how
much clutter you will toler-
ate before having to deal


with it, or (2) rules about
preventing clutter from
accumulating. An example
of the first type: on Sunday
night before you go to bed,
the desk must be clean (or
the mail pile must be dealt
with). An example of the
second type might be: no
junk mail can enter the
house (or stay on a counter
for more than 24 hours).
Before the week is out, make
one of each type of rule and
put them into effect.
3. Create a Temporary


Susan Davis


Holding Bin. There are some
items you just don't know
whether or not you should
hold onto or throw away.
During a review, place items
you think are no longer use-
ful or needed in a temporary
holding bin. If you find that
after a specified amount of
time goes by, you have not.
looked at or used any of the
items in the temporary hold-
ing bin, take the next step
and get rid of them either
donate or toss them.

DWIGHT BARNETT
Scripps Howard News Service
Q: My son lives in a small
brick-framed one-story house
that was probably built in the
1970s, or is older.
He noticed a mildew/mold
stain recently on the ceil-
ing/wall of the bedroom. This
stain is on an outside corner
wall of the bedroom.
Any ideas what could be
causing this?
Also, the cold air return in
the hallway just outside the
main bathroom looks like it
has moisture on the duct-
work. Nothing drips, but it
looks wet.
The ceiling in that bath-
room also gets droplets, even
though they use the vent fan.
It isn't showing any mildew.
And one more question:
Should the air vents in the
crawl space be opened during
the winter?
A: The problem with many
homes built before the energy
crisis of 1974 is the lack of
insulation in the attic, walls
and foundation.
Builders had little incentive
to add insulation because it
increased the costs of the
home and reduced profits to


the builders. In many cases,
the heating and cooling duct-
work was not insulated-to
save on the costs of installa-
tion.
Only after the oil shortages
of the 1970s and the public's
insistence on conserving
energy did- builders and ..,
homeowners become aware
of the benefits of insulating
and sealing a home.
How does this relate to
mold and mildew? Cold areas
of the home attract moisture,
which is normally generated
inside the home or forms in
basements and crawl-space
areas. When the warm, moist
air reaches a cold area such as
the corner where the ceiling
and walls meet, it condenses
back into a liquid that soaks
into the drywall where mold
and mildew can then form.
Molds and mildews are
always with us, but they must
have moisture to survive.
Even homeowners with insu-
lated attics might see mildew
in the corners where strong
winds have pushed the attic
insulation away from the out-
side walls.
Keeping the ceiling and
walls warm and dry is the


first line of defense against
mildew-and mold formation.
The moisture on the duct-
work indicates the ducts are
neither insulated nor sealed.
Ducts need to be made air-
tight at all joints and seams
using either metallic iape or a
duct mastic.
Loose-fitting ducts will leak
expensive conditioned air to
the attic or to the crawl space.
You can reduce the costs of
heating or cooling your home
by simply sealing all the duct-
work and then adding insula-
tion to the attic floor and to
the perimeter walls and band
joists of the foundation.
Insulating the home's walls
can be done by a profession-
al.
Regarding the crawl-space
vents, leave them open in the
winter to vent moisture and
close them -in the summer to
keep moisture out of the
foundation.
