DRIVERS BEWAREClermont now citing red light violators ROXANNE BROWN | Staff Writerroxanne.brown@dailycommercial.comLast week, the warn ings ended for people running red lights in Clermont. Police have started mailing $158 tickets to drivers either racing through red lights or not coming to a complete stop before turning right on red. We hope that the installation of cameras and monitoring will make citizens and drivers more aware and improve driving conditions, Clermont police Capt. Michael McMaster said. We believe it will lead to better driving conditions on the streets of Clermont. We hope that it will cut down on crashes and make the roads safer for motorists, as well as others who share the roads, including pedestrians and cyclists. Earlier this year, the Clermont City Council approved installing up to 24 red light cameras at 13 intersections along State Road 50 and U.S. Highway 27. Only six have been installed to date at the four most problematic inter sections: State Road 50 and East Avenue, one westbound camera; State Road 50 and 5th Street, one eastbound and one westbound camera; State Road 50 and 12th Street, one westbound camera; N Citrus Tower Blvd. Hancock Rd. 12th St. 5th St. East Ave. 2 CAMERASEastbound and westbound 2 CAMERASEastbound and westbound 1 CAMERAWestbound 1 CAMERAWestbound RED LIGHT CAMERA LOCATIONS Beginning this morning, motorists who fail to stop for red lights will receive $158 tickets from the City of Clermont.

WHITNEY WILLARD / STAFF GRAPHIC LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writerlivi.stanford@dailycommercial.comLake Emergency Medical Ser vice ofcials have never dealt with a new anomaly before them: fewer patient transports. In 2013, EMS ofcials reported 49 fewer patient transports than the previous year. And the new scal year, which started in October, isnt shaping up any better with 150 fewer patient transports reported in November when compared with October. As a result of the fewer patient transports last year, the ambu lances budget has been substan tially reduced, with a projected half-a-million dollar loss of reve nue, said Jerry Smith, executive di rector of Lake EMS. This has resulted in the ambu lance service putting on hold the purchase of two ambulances to re place outdated vehicles, Smith said. It has an impact on some longterm eet, which continues to age, he said. We are maintain ing those 19 ambulances we have. We are down bare bones to where we are able to support the organi zation. We are now having to pri oritize those needs to maintain the system. Smith said he could not point to one dening factor for the trans port decrease, as he is still deter mining whether it is indicative of a larger problem or an isolated case. Overall, in 2013, Lake EMS trans ported 31,139 patients. National EMS experts said they have not seen any new trends pointing to reduced transports na tionwide. Mic Gunderson, president of EMS feels pinch as patient count drops LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writerlivi.stanford@dailycommercial.comLake County ofcials and wa ter experts continue to warn that the community must nd an alternative to diminishing groundwater supplies in the next ve years to avoid a direct impact on lake levels and the quality of life in the region.

More information about circulation on Page A4 Integrated Performance Solutions, an EMS con sulting rm and executive director of Kent County EMS, said there are many factors that may affect transports. It varies from community to community, he said. It could be because of changes in policies by insurers and their respective health plans or the way in which hospitals are managing their trans ports. Mike Touchstone, president-elect of the Nation al Emergency Management Association, said he was not aware of any trends from other ambu lance organizations reporting fewer transports. In Philadelphia we have been seeing stabili zation of the number of people being transport ed, he said. There could be a trend and we just dont know about it yet. Touchstone said without looking at specif ic factors of the area, in cluding demographics, he could not pinpoint what could be causing the reduced transports. It is probably just an anomaly, he said. Commissioner Jimmy Conner, who serves as vice chairman of the Lake EMS board, said the problem is extraordinary unusual. When transports are down, revenue is down, he said. It is a huge problem. It affects our ability to buy ambulances. EMS FROM PAGE A1 and State Road 50 and Hancock Road, one eastbound and one westbound camera. Police said about 3,430 warnings were issued during the test period from Dec. 1 through the morning of Dec. 31. McMaster said that number is based mostly on data gathered from three of the monitored intersections, because the camera at SR 50 and 12th Street has been operational for only about one week. Clermont Police Chief Charles Broadway said the intersection with the most infractions was SR 50 and Hancock Road, while the one with the least was SR 50 and East Avenue. Broadway said police have received very few calls regarding the warnings. Mostly, people have been calling with questions about making a legal right turn. The main question had to do with turning right when the light was red, he said. The callers thought they had stopped. One Clermont citizen, who wished to remain anonymous, complained that the still photo he received with his warning looked like he had stopped before turning right on red at SR 50 and Hancock Road. He even called police to speak with a reviewer, who said the actual videotape would probably show he made a rolling stop rather than a complete stop. Because of instances like this, Broadway said drivers who receive citations will be allowed the opportunity to watch their videos for themselves. When notices from ATS are written, the drivers will get a link with a specic identication number that will allow them to view the video online, Broadway said of American Trafc Solutions, the company that installed the cameras. Broadway also said that before a notice of violation is sent to a driver, ofcials at ATS rst review the alleged infraction. Clermont police verify the infraction by watching the videos. In Clermont, the code enforcement ofcer hired to review the tapes of red light runners is Lori Crain. Crain, who came on board last month, makes $14.50 per hour. If they (ATS and Clermont PD reviewers) agree that a violation appears to have occurred, the ofcer (at Clermont PD) accepts the violation, Broadway said. At that point, a driver can either pay the ne or dispute the violation. Dispute hearings, to be conducted by a local attorney, will be held one Monday a month at council chambers in Clermont City Hall. While the City of Cl ermont has been operating its cameras for about a month, the city of Brooksville has been operating 13 cameras there for about ve years. An annual review of that program by the Hernando Today newspaper this week showed the following: Brooksville issued 14,682 re-light camera citations over the past 12 months, or 1,223 citations per month. This is an average of 94 citations per camera, per month. Clermonts 3,430 warnings in a month, divided by the ve cameras that were operational the entire month, is 686 potential citations per month, per camera. Clermonts population, however, is about four times that of Brooksville and local residents have been aware of those cameras for years. The 14,682 citations issued in Brooksville last year generated $2.34 million before the state took its share. Between 2008 and 2009, the red light cameras inaugural year in Brooksville, there was a 35 percent reduction in crashes. About 97 percent of the tickets issued in Brooksville went to people not living in the city who were cited for violations on busy SR 50 and U.S. Highway 41. Recently, the city of Dunnellon in Marion County eliminated its red-light camera program after backlash from business leaders, who feared the camer as would hurt tourism. At least one Hernando County commissioner has the same concerns about Brooksvilles program. When you look at May, when the Blueber ry Festival was in Brooksville, it (the number of citations) went up and then jumped down, lamented Commissioner Kim Adkins in the Her nando Today story. Broadway sees Cler monts cameras as an enhancement to his departments trafc unit. We will not be changing the number of ofcers in the trafc division, he said. The cameras do give us extra eyes on the road, however, and allow us to re-deploy ofcers to other ar eas, basically expanding our capabilities. According to city records, the monthly cost for operating the camer as is $4,750 per camera. State statutes mandate that $100 from each ticket goes to the states General Revenue Fund, $10 goes to the states Department of Health Emergency Medical Ser vices Trust Fund and $3 goes to a Brain and Spinal Cord Injury Trust Fund. This leaves $45 revenue for the city before program costs are deducted. City Manager Darren Gray has said the money will pay for road improvements and trafc-related expenses. Gray said the citys camera contract with ATS is for three years. Ofcials hope enough tickets will be issued to cover the cameras cost. VIOLATORS FROM PAGE A1

I couldnt afford it, the 31-year-old mother said, explaining that her priorities are providing for her children, who are covered under Medicaid. I am trying to get by. Cuevas is not alone. Several people, ages 18-34, known as the young invincibles, said last week that signing up for the plan was not a priority while others said they were still thinking about it. Indeed, the young demographic has become disenchanted with the presidents sig nature health care law. According to a fall 2013 Harvard Insti tute of Politics survey of 2,089 18to 29-yearolds, conducted from Oct. 30 to Nov. 11, a solid majority, 56 per cent, disapprove of the Affordable Care Act. Less than three-inten uninsured Millen nials say they will de nitely or probably enroll in insurance through an exchange if and when they are eligible, the survey stated. Harvard Institute of Politics Polling Director John Della Volpe said in a statement that the re sults were indicative of young Americans low approval of the presi dent and Congress. Young Americans hold the president, Congress and the federal government in less esteem almost by the day, and the levels of engagement they are having in politics are also on the decline, he said. On his way to the Lake-Sumter State College campus, Jessie Santos said signing up for health insurance was not at the top of his list. It is not important to me, he said. I have a lot more busy things to do. It is just on the back burner. Asked if he worries about getting sick, San tos shook his head, adding that he only gets sick once a year: a non-event for him. According to healthcare.gov, those who do not sign up for cover age by March 31, 2014, will have to pay $95 per person a year or 1 per cent of their gross in come. That fee will be increased every year, the website states, amounting to $325 per person beginning in 2015 (or 2 percent of income), followed by $695 per individual in 2016 (or 2.5 percent of income). Cuevas said she is concerned about the penalty, but said buy ing health insurance is not practical now. While Mary Reed, 32, has health insurance, her husband does not. He hasnt bought it yet, she said, also citing nancial difculties. The law, which went into effect Jan. 1, an gered Reed. I dont feel people should be forced to do it, she said. There are urgent care clinics for those (without insur ance). What happened to our free rights? she asked. As she exited the bus at LSSC, DAndrea Poole held her 1-yearold daughter, Brooke, closely. The 19-year-old LSSC sophomore said while she is covered by Med icaid, she said it is important young people sign up for coverage. But signing up should be easier, she said. They need to make the process as simple as possible, especially if they want the young er adults to get in volved, she said.They need to make it more accessible. Poole said friends in her age group are non chalant about signing up. Most of them dont go to the doctor, she said. Even if they do, I am sure it is pretty ex pensive. Cuevas cringes when thinking of the costs of going to a doctor without health insurance. When you get sick, if you have to go to the doctor, it costs a for tune, she said. You are lucky to pay the bill. The Affordable Care Act has already insured 3.1 million young adults who are allowed to stay on their parents plans until age 26, ac cording to the White House. The law also prohibits insurance companies from denying individuals under 19 years coverage based on pre-existing con ditions, according to specics on the law. According to the Associated Press, there are numerous national cam paigns from support ers and detractors of the health care law to sway young invincibles. If there are not enough young people signing up for health insurance, it could cause insurance rates to increase dramatically, the AP stated. Currently, there are million uninsured 19-36 year olds, ac cording to the U.S. Census Bureau. This group account ed for percent of the uninsured population under the age of 65, the Census reported.Young invincibles not jumping to sign up for Obamacare THERESA CAMPBELL / STAFF WRITER DAndrea Poole, 19, holds her daughter Brooke. While she does not need to get coverage because she is insured through Medicaid, Poole said it is important that young adults sign up. But, she said, the process should be simpler.

A4 SOUTH LAKE PRESS Wednesday, January 8, 2014Mount Dora should build a parking garageIf there ever was a need for a parking garage in a town in the Lake County area, it is in Mount Dora. Who is holding back on this service to the community and why? Any time there is a function we would like to go to, the parking problem comes up. We and many other seniors and also families with small chil dren and babies have to park so far away that many times we just say, Its not worth it. Tavares and Leesburg both have had the common sense and courtesy to the public to provide parking garages. Why not Mount Dora, which usually has much more demand and need than these cities? Not only do we have to park a long distance away from downtown Mount Dora at large events, but many of the sidewalks are easy to stumble over as they are out of line be cause of tree roots. Buses at the Golds Gym parking lot on U.S. Highway are not the an swer either. They are better than nothing but are still an inconvenience. A parking garage doesnt have to be built just a block away, but a short distance would be so much better than none at all. At the same time, it would take a lot of pressure off downtown parking. I know there are many people in the area who would agree with me. Please, Mount Dora, do something about this.JAMES M. BUSH | LeesburgDemocrats care about people, not like the GOPLetter writer Thomas Abrehemsen wrote, I dont un derstand how anyone could vote Democrat. I can begin with an old adage that says, The rich have their party and the rest of us are Democrats. Yes, the Democrats have many very rich people, but they have a concern for the least fortunate among us, which distinguishes them from wealthy Republicans. Abrehemsen is correct when he wrote that Republicans want small government. Many are so anti-government that they want no government. Our founding fathers also wanted small government, and they tried it with the two Continental Congresses and the Articles of Confederation and found them inadequate for governing a nation. So they created the most powerful cen tral government the world had ever seen. Republicans do want less regulation, but the catch is in why they want less regulation. We are becoming a plutocracy in which we have rule by the wealthy for the benet of the wealthy. The only hope we have to stop this stampede toward a plutocracy is the Democratic Party. I do understand why some people vote Republican. Those who are running large busi nesses want less regulation so they can make more money. I understand the selsh super wealthy wanting their taxes cut. But I do not understand the working class ever voting against their own economic in terests by voting Republican.MARVIN JACOBSON | ClermontSex clubs do not belong in our public schoolsSex Clubs in our schools? Gay, straight these two words are descriptive in reference to sex. Your sexual orientation is your business, not mine. Keep the bedroom out of our schools. We have health classes to help the kids learn about their bodies. But it is not the schools place to help them promote their sexual agendas. Why do we make laws based on our desire for a certain kind of sex? These lawsuits about the type of sex we prefer do not belong in our schools. Parents should be helping these kids understand that there are differences in types of sex. Hold meetings in your home to discuss the moral issues if you feel that is needed (gay, straight even adultery), but dont force people who do not practice your way of sexual behavior to condone your views. If this was a club that covered a subject that would help us be good citizens in our community, it would be appropriate, but your ideas on sex are yours and should be shared with those who want to discuss it not in a school setting. When you try to force your sexual ideas, gay or straight, on others you cause friction. Dont we have enough of that in all other areas of our lives? Sex clubs do not belong in school.PHYLLIS CHAPMAN | LeesburgScott should require gas stations hire attendantsRecent studies and articles have highlighted the dis mal employment num bers of young, low-income, rst-time job seekers. Gov. Rick Scott might consider requir ing that every sizable gas sta tion hire an attendant for at least one full-service gas pump on weekday daylight hours. Daytime hours would remove some of the threat of criminal activity against the attendants, as would the scattering of po lice ofcers in the place of the regular pumpers from time to time. Garden State retirees, especially women, blown to Florida by the winter winds, view the pump signs of self-serve with distaste and may be heard muttering, Were not in Jersey any more, Toto. For indeed New Jersey has long required all pumps to be serviced by an attendant. So, if Gov. Scott wants to know how to work this out he has only to check with his fellow governor. There will be many plausible, well-documented, excellent reasoned-out arguments why such a plan would not nay, could not work out. There always are. There are thousands of human reasons why it should be implemented. Who would benet? Seniors in general, particularly many women, who, if they havent a husband or boyfriend to do the greasy chore, would welcome the sight of an eager ller-upper. The big winners would be the youth who have never been hired and lack that all-important rst job experience. These young men and women would learn to practice courtesy, skill, responsibility and job satisfaction. They wold gain the feeling of accomplishment and the pride of getting a paycheck (even if small), as a start in a future career. To teach the youngsters the basic skills and demeanor required, training by some local, reliable auto shops, or classes at a local community college or technical school would prepare the students. Some might gain an interest in engines and pursue further learning in auto technology at a college. Training in the new electric charging and allied electronics could also be an added accomplishment. Another group that might benet from such a job oppor tunity is that of experienced seniors who are not quite managing on a Social Security check that seems to run out on the 15th of the month. Lastly, couldnt the big oil companies contribute to the program? They could get a big public relations boost for being the good guys in helping unemployed youth. Do you think all this would work? If so, let Gov. Scott know.JESSIE SCOTT | Lady Lake.South Lake is moving in a healthy directionSomethings going on in south Lake County and its bound to get your heart racing. Actually, getting your heart rate up is precisely the point of a comprehensive effort in the fastest growing area of the county. South Lake ofcials have been pushing initiatives to improve the overall health and well being of residents. The WorkWell program is one of those efforts. The program a function of the South Lake Hospital LiveWell campus aims to help employers create environments that encourage health and wellness. It is also part of a more comprehensive fo cus directed by South Lake Hospital, the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, south Lake cities and the county. We heartily applaud these endeavors, which serve to enhance the overall health and productivity of residents and place the area on the map for its health and recre ational features. Add into this healthy mix the decision by hospital ofcials to brand SLH a LiveWell campus where better eating, active choices and high-tech care are part of creating a healthier lifestyle. Another plus: The Road Runners Club of America designated the area a Runner Friendly Community for its safe environment fostering physical activity; and its proven track record in getting business es and organizations to work together to promote running as a healthy exercise and sport. Other tness-focus projects are expanding in south Lake. The National Training Center serves as a training ground for many professional athletes, including 23 who took part in the London 2012 Olympics. The county and the city of Clermont are building a rowing facility. Years ago, county ofcials analyzed the statistics and concluded that this was the best path to take. This has proven to be a worthy investment both in the jobs itll create and the well being of the community and we believe the public should be informed. Our advice: Lets keep this ball moving in the right direction. YOUR EDITORIAL BOARDROD DIXON . .......................................... PUBLISHERTOM MCNIFF . .................................

The Groundwater Guardian Community presents a good op portunity to focus on the education for the protection of our water resources, said Commissioner Sean Parks. It works with educating our kids about water issues and the aquifer. Commissioner Jimmy Conner said more awareness is needed on the issue. People only have concerns about water when you have growth. We need to make it a high priority. The inititiative is inclusive of a good cross section of the com munity, Burks said. It brings everyone to the ta ble. Until you get the masses involved, you are not going to have effective results. Jay Beaumont, board member of the Groundwater Foundation, said since establishing a Guardian Community in Orange County, N.Y., it has been effective at educating people about the protection of water resources. You do result-oriented activ ities, he said. Here in Orange County, we put on the Childrens Groundwater Festival. We have had water conservation educa tion in the schools. We will do stream walks, where Boy Scouts will go in and clean debris from the streams. It is a whole bunch of tools that local people devel op to help protect the water. In Nebraska, there are a lot of nitrates that get into the ground water, he said. Out in the far west, there is a lot less water falling as far as rainfall. And in Oregon and Washington, there is plenty of water, but it is about making sure pollution does not get into the water. Burks said water sustainabil ity continues to be on the top concerns in the county. We are currently utiliz ing about 94 percent of our to tal resource from the aquifer, he said, citing the hydrological studies from the Central Florida Water Initiative. If we grow to a point of utilizing another 6 percent, then we would be at a point of depletion. Alan Oyler, consultant for St. Johns River Water Management District, who is assisting the South Lake Regional Water Initiative, also expressed simi lar concerns at the rst annual South Lake Water Summit in November addressing the issue. There is a demand of 300 million gallons of water by 2035 and we only have 50 million gallons that can be met by our tradition al source, he said. All of the utilities are going to have to nd 250 million gallons of water. For us to meet project demands, we are going to have to import wa ter from someplace else. At the summit, a panel of ex perts from the Lake County Wa ter Authority and the St. Johns River Water Management Dis trict weighed in on the problem of dwindling reserves in the Floridan aquifer.

A HEALTHY CHANGE FRANK JOLLEY | Staff Writerfrank.jolley@dailycommercial.comFreddie Cole welcomes challenges. The Lake Minneola High School boys basketball coach has pitted the Hawks against all levels of competition, from public schools in Lake County to programs outside the area with national reputations, like Gainesville The Rock. Cole is a believer in the ad age that teams get better by playing quality competition. So far, the theory appears to be paying off for Lake Minne ola. The Hawks sported a 15-1 record through Sunday and are the top-ranked school in Class 6A. Lake Minneolas picked up a pair of showcase victories on Friday and Saturday in a pair of games at Altamonte Springs Lake Brantley. The games, which were set up by local promoter Scott Sanders, were against Ocoee West Oaks Academy and Class 7A power house Lauderdale Lakes Boyd Anderson. In the rst game, against highly touted West Oaks Acad emy, Lake Minneola overcame a signicant size disadvantage to pick up a 72-60 win. West Oaks entered the game with six players on its roster who stood at 6-foot-9 inches tall, while Lake Minneola had no starter taller than 6-foot-2. The Hawks, however, turned that apparent disad vantage into a lethal weapon by spreading the oor on of fense and using its quickness to score on dunks and slashing drives. On defense, Lake Minneola sagged into the paint and refused to allow the Flame any easy shots. Lake Minneola bolted to an early lead and forced the Flame out its comfort zone by forcing them to play catchup. So dominant was the Hawks game plan, that Lake Minneola enjoyed a signicant re bounding advantage over it taller opponents.

LIVI STANFORD | Staff Writerlivi.stanford@dailycommercial.comMany mornings, you can gaze out over the placid wa ters of south Lake County and watch powerful athletes pulling on oars that propel pencil-thin boats silently over lake tops. If that isnt your thing, you can fall in step with any number of runners striding purposeful ly along the streets and paths of south Lake. These scenes are common, and theyre why community leaders in south Lake County are working to brand the area as a destination that attracts the kind of people who value tness. The effort involves public and private interests working to gether to develop a web of activities that promote health and wellness for everyone, but also appeal to top-tier athletes hop ing to hone their skills. South Lake Hospital is a key player in the effort, offering a WorkWell program that aids employers in their companys health and tness goals. After employees began a daily, mandatory 10-minute stretching program at Cherry Lake Tree Farm in 2012, the compa nys costs for workers compen sation and insurance claims dropped, and its accident inci dent rate has also declined. The WorkWell program is just one aspect of south Lakes con tinued emphasis on health and wellness. South Lake ofcials said it has been part of a combined ef fort between South Lake Hospital, the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, south Lake cities and the county. It is very exciting what is go ing to happen over the next 10 years and how much of a sports, tness and outdoor region we are going to become known for, said County Commissioner Sean Parks. The Road Runners Club of America recently designated south Lake a Runner Friendly Community. The area boasts a number of other tness-themed projects. It is home to the National Train ing Center, which serves as a training ground for many pro fessional athletes, including 23 who took part in the London 2012 Olympics.

The plan would transform 16,000 acres in the southeast cor ner of the county into a hub for high-tech health care jobs and other industries. It is expected to attract people who like to bike, walk and enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle.RUNNING Designating south Lake a Runner Friend ly Community, the rst in Central Florida, so lidies that south Lake County as a whole embraces health and wellness, said John Moore, South Lake Hospital president. There are 26 Run ner Friendly commu nities across the United States, according to Shannon Hidal go, chairwoman of the South Lake Chambers Sports and Tourism Committee. Hidalgo said the des ignation amplies our reputation not only as a world-class train ing destination, but more importantly, as a healthy communi ty whose roots in run ning, health and well ness run deep. But the designation goes a step further, she added. What it means is the quality of life is am plied, she said. No matter who you are or where you live in south Lake, there are oppor tunities for you to en gage safely in wellness activities. The designation is also an important tool in fostering economic development, Hidalgo noted. She cited the city of Missoula, Mont., which was designated a runner-friendly community. Since then, the citys marathon has doubled in size, she said. Clermont City Manager Darren Gray said ofcials are working on branding the city, which gives it an iden tity. He said the runner friendly designation helps. Here in Clermont and all over south Lake, were all about the sports, the tness and the healthy living, he said. We have champions living all over the city and we want to embrace that. Mike Bucher, chair of the Chambers Public Policy Committee, said south Lake is seeking a bicycle-friendly designation as well.ROWING The county and the city of Clermont have allocated $1 million toward building a rowing facility at the Water front Park. Construction of the facility is scheduled to be completed this year. Currently, county ofcials said they are put ting the project out to bid for an architect and engineer. By the end of 2014 we are planning some very big regattas, Parks said. We are working with partners in Sarasota County to help with the International World Championships. The rowing facility will also enable the city to house teams from out of state that are training, Parks said. It puts us on the map for rowing, which is a niche sport for us, said Parks, who was a rower in college. As captain of the varsity crew team, he won the Mens Lightweight Dad Vail Race. I know Clermont is a great place for rowing. Debbie Kiely, president of the Lake Coun ty Rowing Association, said south Lake is the ideal spot for the sport. I have rowed in a lot of places, she said. We are blessed our water is clean and is debris free.

WELLNESS FROM PAGE B1 with 20 points, followed by Avery Brown with 16 and Anthony Brown with 15. On Saturday, Lake Minneola fought through foul trouble to pick up a 64-61 win against Boyd Anderson. Anthony Brown led the way with 19 points. We made big plays in the nal two minutes to secure the win, Cole said. We were playing a team that was aggressive like us, so it was a big win. Im happy to be 15-1 and proud to be coaching these kids, who remain hungry even with their success. Lake Minneola was the rst member of the Florida High School Athletic Asso ciation to play West Oaks this season. The Flame en tered the game with a 13-1 record. These were two big games for our program and Im pleased with how well we did. Cole said. The Hawks have run roughshod over area teams this season. They beat East Ridge twice by 51 and 36 points, respectively and scored 100 points against Umatilla. Prior to losing to Ocala Vanguard, Lake Minneola beat the Knights 69-59 on Nov. 19. The 10 point margin of victory against Ocala Van guard is the closet game the Hawks have played this season, aside from its lone loss. In addition to its blow out wins against Lake County foes, Lake Minneola blasted Gainesville The Rock 78-47 in the Center Stage Classic on Dec. 6 at Montverde Academy. The Hawks also beat Sarasota Riverview 82-43, Auburn dale 79-52 and Tampa Bay Christian 84-70. Lake Minneolas frenetic pace has presented problems for many teams. West Oaks plays a na tional schedule, similar to Montverde Academy, and has players from 10 coun tries on its roster. We have to play the best to be the best, Cole said. These two games will help us prepare for the playoffs. HAWKS FROM PAGE B1 in Tavares.

SOLUTION ON D3 HISTORY FROM PAGE C1 Welcome in 2014! Now is the time when the Christmas bills will roll in and put stress on your checkbook. Coupons can be a very important tool to saving more mon ey. Knowing when and how to use the coupons, when to clip and when not to clip coupons can be confusing to say the least. With all the changes with store policies and limits, is it still worth my time to cut and print coupons each week? T. MARKE, THE VILLAGES Yes, it is worth your time to clip the coupons each week. The manufactur ers will have a sale to coincide with the coupon in your area. Eighty-eight per cent of the coupons in your Sunday paper this week are for items that will be on sale in your area. The magic will happen when you use your coupon with the sale price. Many times I nd that another brand is cheaper without a coupon, and I feel like I have wasted my time or I am just not getting the hang of using coupons. D. THOMAS, LEESBURG It can be quite frustrating when you have spent the time to clip your coupons, research the sales and head to the store only to nd that another quality brand is less expensive without a coupon. It is perfectly okay to buy the other brand and put your coupon away. The key is saving money. If you plan on buying Kraft cheese with your coupon but Sargento is a better deal without a coupon, then buy the Sargento brand. As a new couponer, I ended up spending more at the store than I did before couponing. What am I doing wrong? J. JANSEN, TAVARES New couponers can end up spending more in the beginning due to feeling like they need to buy everything they have a coupon for. It is normal, and there is a learning curve to using coupons. Timing is key, and having a coupon doesnt make it the right time to use it. Ninety-ve percent of the time, the product will go on sale before the coupon expires. Holding the coupon until then will save you 50-75 per cent on that product. Dont be discouraged and keep trying! Great question. Is there anything I can do with my expired coupons? I have the best intentions but sometimes they expire before I can use the coupon. B. SMITES, MT. DORA YES! Great question. Our military can use expired coupons up to six months after the expiration date. This was set up for the bases over seas, but many in the States will allow expired coupons at the PX or commissaries as well. Every base is differ ent. Coupsfortroops.com is a great resource for addresses to mail expired coupons to. This would be a great community service action for your club or civic group.Tanya Senseney has more than 16 years experience saving and teaching others how to reduce their monthly grocery budget.
