Mining facility stirs controversy


Local residents,
health experts
worry about effects
of development
LIVI STANFORD I Staff Writer
livi.stanford@dailycommercial.com
A proposed 1,196-acre sand
mine in the center of
the planning area of the
Wellness Way Sector Plan in
South Lake is stirring up con-
troversy.
The Sector Plan would trans-
form 16,000 acres in the south-
east corner of the county into
a hub for high-tech health care
jobs and other industries.
But Clermont residents and
others worry that reclamation
efforts will not be suitable for
future development, and traf-
fic would clog U.S. Highway 27.
Farmers living in the area also
worry about damage to their
crops from the sand mine.


WHITNEYWILLARD/ STAFF GRAPHIC
Additionally, a health expert
said there are questions about
the mining and its effects on
public health because of the
particulates that are generated
when mining.


However, officials with CE-
MEX say the mine would bring
badly needed economic devel-
opment to an area where the
citrus industry has taken a hit
because of greening disease.
In either case, the mine won't
be approved for at least six
months. County commission-
ers recently voted 4-1, with
Commissioner Tim Sullivan
dissenting, to postpone the ap-
plication for half a year while
work continues to firm up the
Wellness Way Sector Plan.
Commissioner Sean Parks
said at the Nov. 19 commission
meeting that he was opposed
to granting a 30-day contin-
uance and proposed a six-
month time period.
"I have been monitoring the
applicant's efforts to work with
the stakeholders, specifically
the city of Clermont. To be di-
rect, there is a lot of detail that
is lacking in what I have seen,"
he said without elaborating

Red light


cameras debut


in Clermont


THERESA CAMPBELL I Staff Writer
theresacampbell@dailycommercial.com
Clermont activated
24 red light cameras at
13 busy intersections
last week, but a Marion
County mayor said if his
experience is any indi-
cation, Clermont could
be in for a rough ride.
Dunnellon Mayor
Nathan Whitt said sim-
ilar cameras were taken
down in his city after
they were blamed for
driving away visitors,
angering residents,
and causing a 300 per-
cent spike in rear-end
collisions from driv-
ers slamming on their
brakes to avoid run-
ning red lights.
"I have heard noth-
ing but 'Thank you for
removing the camer-
as' from citizens across
the board," Whitt said.
"I have not heard 'Why
did you do that?'"
He now wants folks

who have avoided visit-
ing Dunnellon to come
back. He wants them to
know the red light cam-
eras were removed in
August.
"My administration
voted them out; we got
rid of them," the mayor
said. "I think we were the
first city in Florida to re-
move the cameras.... We
have set a precedent."
Dunnellon installed
four red light cameras
in 2010 (before Whitt
was in office), but he
remembers the cam-
eras generated a lot of
negativity when peo-
ple and visitors were
hit with $158 fines in
the mail.
Whitt said after he be-
gan as mayor in Janu-
ary, he was bombarded

City takes up $6.3M church purchase


ROXANNE BROWN I Staff Writer
roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com
Clermont city officials heard
a great deal of support last
week for the idea of turning the
sprawling Celebration of Praise
church into a municipal com-
plex that would house gov-
ernment offices but also be an
attractive cultural and recre-
ational gathering spot for city
residents.
At a workshop, City Manager
Darren Gray and his staff pre-
sented council members with
a proposal to purchase the
church for $6.3 million.


Gray, along with Assistant
City Manager Scott Blanken-
ship and Finance Manager Joe
Van Zile, recommended that
the city finance the purchase
in order to provide the com-
munity and its residents with a
building that would be primar-
ily for their use. The church is
currently in bankruptcy and is
owned by Centennial Bank.
Gray presented the council
with the findings of top-to-bot-
tom inspections of the building
and property, a financing plan
and operating budget projec-
tions. The council has until
Dec. 10 to make a decision.


The church building, at near-
ly 69,000 square feet, can hold
up to 1,200 people in its main
sanctuary, which includes a
large stage area. The proper-
ty also has a an outdoor swim-
ming pool plus a kiddie pool
and jacuzzi a 280-seat indoor
theater with stadium seating
and a stage as well, a gymna-
sium and a commercial-grade
kitchen.
A daycare facility inside the
church also has many rooms
that could be used for different
purposes.

Bullets rip through Clermont business after hours


ROXANNE BROWN I Staff Writer
roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com
Clermont police de-
tectives are trying to de-
termine who fired shots
through the window and
door of a local business
last week.
Sommer Sports, owned
by Fred Sommer, who for
decades, has been bring-
ing people from all over
the world to compete in
the triathlons they orga-
nize, is located off Citrus
Tower Boulevard on Mo-
hawk Road.

with hundreds of angry
calls, letters and emails
about red-camera com-
plaints from residents
and out-of-state visitors,
many who told Whitt they
did not realize yellow
lights changed on them
when they crossed the in-
tersection.
The mayor said he
learned a previous city
manager had the lights
engineered to change
from yellow to red in 2.3
seconds the shortest
interval that is permitted
by state law which al-
lowed the city to rack up
more ticket revenue.
"It was just an unfair
advantage for the city,
and at the same time, it
really created a lot of con-
troversy and animosity,"
Whitt said. "We drove a
lot of people away."
Some wrote complaints
to Whitt saying, "Dunnel-
lon is a wonderful town,
but I will never come
back."
"We were becoming the
next Waldo," Whitt said.
"If you know Waldo, you
don't drive through Wal-
do because it's a speed
trap. It has been for de-
cades. I did not want our
tourist friendly town to
turn into another Waldo.
If you need revenue, you
need revenue, but at the
expense of what? What
price do you pay on the
folks that you run out of
town and never return?"
Twenty-four red light
cameras became oper-
ational in Clermont last
Tuesday at 13 intersec-
tions along State Road 50
and U.S. Highway 27. Mo-
torists will have a month
to get used to the camer-
as, with warning notices
coming in the mail rather
than tickets, City Manag-
er Darren Gray said.
Clermont city officials
contend the cameras are
to make roads safer and
they have no idea at this
early stage how much
revenue they might gen-
erate for road and trans-
portation projects.
But Whitt's view ap-
pears to be in line with
state Sen. Jeff Brandes,
St. Petersburg, chairman
of the Senate's Transpor-
tation Committee, who
believes the red light
cameras are all about
generating money. Ac-
cording to theledger.com,
Brandes has asked the
Florida Office of Program
Policy and Government
Accountability to exam-
ine red light camera pol-
icies and practices across
the state.
"Every municipality
since 2007-08 has been
grabbing for dollars,"
Whitt said. "To me, red


light cameras are a des-
perate attempt at a mon-
ey grab. I don't think it's
fair to your citizens, es-


According to Lt .Michael
McMaster, .22-caliber
bullet casings and other
evidence recovered from
the scene after the shoot-
ing are being reviewed.
According to Sommer,
when he arrived at the
front door of his office
just after 7 a.m. on Tues-
day of last week, he no-
ticed that the front glass
window and door ap-
peared to have been shot.
Sommer went inside
and looked around to de-
termine if he had been


burglarized, but noticed
nothing out of place.
That's when he called 911.
A few minutes later, an-
other employee, arrived
and said the business was
intact when she left the
previous evening at 6:30.
Sommer said that a few

HOW THE RED LIGHT
CAMERAS WORK
After the light has turned red, the
camera's sensors are activated only
when a vehicle cross the edge of the
intersection, indicated by the solid, wide
white line.
The traffic camera (front) takes a photo
of the vehicle as it enters the intersection
and the (rear) as it passes through the
intersection.
The camera fully documents the
violation and records the date and time
of the event, the vehicle speed, the
license plate number, the time lapsed
when the light turned red and the vehicle
entered the intersection, and the
intersection location.
If you're already in the middle of the
intersection when the light turns red, the
sensors will not activate the camera.
Some systems wait a fraction of a
second after the light turns red, giving
drivers a "grace period".
Also, most cameras will not activate if
a vehicle is just sitting on the sensors.
Each intersection with a camera will
be posted "PHOTO ENFORCED".

pecially your friends and
neighbors. And in our
case, we were driving
people out of town with
those red light cameras."
The mayor said Dun-
nellon was spending
$20,000 a month to lease
the cameras, while Cler-
mont expects to pay $1.3
million a year for their
cameras. Some cities and
counties have reported-
ly brought in hundreds of
thousands, and even mil-
lions, from fines from red
light runners.
"Roughly half of the
revenue generated goes
to the state. So the state
of course loves this idea,"
Whitt said.
The cameras have gen-
erated $62.5 million for
the state from July 2012
to June 2013, according
to the Florida Depart-
ment of Revenue, as re-
ported by WUFT News
at the University of Flor-
ida, which noted red
light cameras are used
in about 76 jurisdictions
across Florida.
Even though the cam-
eras can be a source of in-
come for governments,
Whitt said the main argu-
ment in favor of the red
light cameras is always
that it's a safety factor.
"I can blow that safe-
ty factor out of the wa-
ter," Whitt said. "Our rear-
end collisions went up
300 percent from people
slamming their brakes
not to run lights."
He also hears the ar-
gument that saving one
horrible T-bone accident
from occurring is better
than rear-end collisions.
"I absolutely disagree.
The guy or gal that is go-


ing down the road in Cler-
mont in 2010 had been
destroyed. Police said the
vandal appeared to have
used a sledge hammer.
However, both Som-
mer and his employee
said that although there
have been complaints in
the past about bicycles
on the road, they had not
received any threaten-
ing message or telephone
calls recently.
No other business ap-
pear to have been dis-
turbed or damaged.

JULIA ESTRADA/ HALIFAX MEDIA GROUP
said 24 states includ-
ing Florida have red
light cameras currently
operating at least one lo-
cation. The Insurance In-
stitute for Highway Safe-
ty puts the number of
municipalities in Flori-
da with red light camer-
as at about 70, with Cler-
mont and Groveland the
only ones in Lake or Sum-
ter counties.
Both groups support
red light camera use, say-
ing they improve driver
safety.
The National Motor-
ists Association (NMA) is
against them, stating on
its web site: "Despite the
claims of companies that
sell ticket cameras and
provide related services,
there is no independent
verification that photo
enforcement devices im-
prove highway safety, re-
duce overall accidents, or
improve traffic flow."
In a community with a
population under 2,000
residents, the city's pre-
vious administration bor-
rowed $20 million to cre-
ate revenue generators,
including the red light
cameras.
"To me, it was a bad
decision as opposed to
shrinking your govern-
ment and living with-
in your means, your new
reality of your tax base,"
he said. "When the In-
tersection Safety Act was
pushed upon on us, that
was the last straw. We re-
alized we were going to
write 3,000 to 5,000 more
tickets a year to shore
those revenues, and the
population was already
angry."


ing to run the light that
caused that kind of ac-
cident has no idea that
there is a camera, so that
makes no sense. It is to-
tally a money grab," he
said. "They start out as
big revenue the first year.
Usually, that's the most
revenue that you will see
from them."
He said once locals and
neighboring folks learned
about the cameras, rev-
enues began shrinking
dramatically. Revenue
also reduced when the
cameras were set for a
longer yellow light, rath-
er than the 2.3 second
switch from yellow to red.
"We realized revenue
was dropping because
people had a little longer
time to come to a stop,"
Whitt said, which was
only fair for motorists.
He said Dunnellon's
revenue was cut in half in
the second year.
"By year three, there
was barely enough mon-
ey to keep them running
if you ask me," Whitt said.
"Because you have to pay
officers not only to review
the video, but you also
have pay officers to those
hearings if people dis-
pute them."
Red light cameras were
approved in 2010 by the
Legislature, named after
the Mark Wandell Traffic
Safety Act. Wandell was
killed by a motorist who
ran through a red light
in Manatee County. His
wife, Melissa, was nine
months pregnant at the
time and she launched
a campaign for red light
cameras.

MINE
FROM PAGE Al

because he's preclud-
ed from talking about
quasi-judicial matters.
CEMEX RECLAMATION
Situated on aban-
doned agricultural
land, mining would oc-
cur on 623 acres of the
site, according to the
company's application.
CEMEX uses front-
end loaders to exca-
vate sand and place it
on conveyer belts for
sorting at a processing
plant. Customer trucks
will then pick up the
sorted sand and haul it
away.
"The material will be
mined using conven-
tional equipment and
in less than 25 percent
of the area, excava-
tion may occur below
the water table using a
track excavator, which
is limited to about 15
feet in depth," the ap-
plication stated.
All mined areas will
be reclaimed to use-
able lands suitable for
all land uses, the appli-
cation stated. Mining
will be in units of 100
acres or less.
Sara Engdahl, direc-
tor of communications
for CEMEX USA, said
the mine would have
no effect on water and
would aid in economic
development, bringing
in at least $4.7 million
a year.
Marcia Bjornerud,
professor of geology at
Lawrence University,
who has studied sand
mines, questioned the
mine's reclamation
strategy.
"If you remove some-
thing from the ground
and don't add some-
thing of equivalent vol-
ume back in, there will
be a hole," she said.
Opponents of the
plan echoed those sen-
timents.
"We want them to re-
store the land as they
found it," said Cler-
mont City Councilman
Ray Goodgame. "Our
concern is if you leave
1,196 acres 10 foot be-
low median grade,
what would you do


with the property?"
While acknowledging
that the area will nev-
er be the same as it was
previously, Luis Gonza-
lez, professor of geolo-
gy at the University of
Kansas, said "reclama-
tion for development
does work if there is
a need or demand for
the housing or recre-
ational land that is re-
claimed."
"Some of the ma-
jor mining companies
do a great job in part-
nering with local de-
velopment companies
to produce an aes-
thetically pleasing de-
velopment, whether
residential or commer-
cial," he said.
Engdahl said the
land would be re-
claimed below the ex-
isting grade, but it
would not affect CE-
MEX's ability to build
or develop on the land.
HEALTH EFFECTS
Crispin Pierce, an as-
sociate profes sor and
program director for
the Environmental
Public Health Program
at the University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire,
recently concluded
an air quality study at
mining sites, which
showed higher levels of
PM2.5 the particu-
lates mining generates
including silica than
what was reported by
the Department of
Natural Resources.
As a result, Pierce as-
serts there should be
more monitoring by
the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmen-
tal Protection and oth-
er agencies.
"Basically I know of
no 'safe' level of PM2.5
or silica exposure," he
said, citing studies that
found increased risks
of cancer, cardiovascu-
lar disease and death
from natural causes,
as a result of certain
PM2.5 concentrations.
"But there is a de-
gree of certainty of no
harm, depending on
the standards that are
enforced."
Engdahl said the
materials in the mine
would not be crushed
or ground, and as a re-


BRETT LE BLANC/ DAILY COMMERCIAL

suit, silica would not
be released into the air.
Pierce disagreed.
"Even in digging it
out and loading it in a
truck you are generat-
ing those small partic-
ulates (of silica)," he
said. "Without moni-
toring by an indepen-
dent agency, we don't
have the kind of assur-
ance we need to pro-
tect public health."
Dee Ann Miller,
spokeswoman for the
Florida Department of
Environmental Protec-
tion, said, "The appli-
cant must provide rea-
sonable assurance that
the project will not ad-
versely affect the pub-
lic health, safety or
welfare or the property
of others."
CONCERNS AND
SUPPORT
Jim Karr, one of the
landowners living
within the boundaries
of the Sector Plan, said
he is concerned about
the size and duration
of the operation.
"To take something
that large and put it
right in the middle
of (the Sector Plan)
doesn't seem the right
thing to do," he said.


"They are going to say
they are doing to rede-
velop it after the min-
ing operation. I have
not seen a lot of sand
mines redeveloped."
David Hill wor-
ries the sand mine
will harm his blueber-
ry farm on the eastern
border of the site.
"If a bad dust storm
from the sand mine
came across, we
wouldn't be able to
pack (the blueberries)
and sell them because
we can't wash them,"
he said. "We have 40
acres of blueberries
and they are very ten-
der and sensitive. They
could ruin it."
Engdahl said the
company has agreed
to put up vegetative
berms to protect sand


particles from affecting
the blueberries.
But, Hill said it is dif-
ficult.
"It is very difficult to
try to work out where
we can coexist right
next to a sand mine,"
he said.
Sean Snaith, direc-
tor of the Universi-
ty of Central Florida's
Institute for Econom-
ic Competitiveness
and a consultant to
Littlejohn Engineer-
ing Associates the
firm awarded the Sec-
tor Plan project said
there are certainly two
sides to the issue.
"Any industry can
point to economic
benefits if they are pro-
ducing goods or ser-
vices," he said. "Some
type of industries are
not suited for different
regions for a variety
of reasons. Does this
fit with the longer-run
plans for what the re-
gion envisions the Sec-
tor Plan to become?"
Clermont City Man-
ager Darren Gray has
previously said the
sand mine application
is premature because
the Sector Plan is not
completed.
"We're asking for the
county to deny the
permit and let us go
through the planning
process first before we
start approving uses in
that area," he said.
"This type of use may
have a place in the Sec-
tor Plan area, but not
of this scope and not
in this location," Gray
also wrote in a letter to
Commissioner Leslie
Campione.
Parks believes there
will be a final version
of the Sector Plan with-
in six months.
Expressing their con-


cerns in a letter to
commissioners, the
president of the Ava-
lon Home and Prop-
erty Owners Associ-
ation said they were
concerned the "mine
would generate a large
amount of truck traffic
running 24 hours, sev-
en days a week."
"I am concerned the
'WellnessWay' and
other upscale devel-
opment will be jeop-
ardized," wrote Carol
Johnson.
Engdahl said traffic
concerns are being ad-
dressed.
"The vast majority
of trucks coming out
of the plant will be in
non-rush hour traffic,"
she said. "The num-
ber of trucks that we
expect to be added to
Highway 27 is less than
1 percent of the capac-
ity of the highway."
CEMEX has also
agreed to provide the
right-of-way donation
and improve portions
of Schofield Road, Eng-
dahl added.
Several CEMEX em-
ployees and county
residents wrote letters
in support of the appli-
cation.
Melvin Kyle pointed
to CEMEX's land rec-
lamation history in its
reclamation of Eng-
strom Lake, a 23-acre
reclaimed mine pit
where the Engstrom
Outdoor Classroom is
located.
"CEMEX has
achieved national (rec-
ognition) for its com-
mitment to the en-
vironment and has a
good record of time-
ly and s successful mine

OURVIEW


City should move


with caution on


traffic cameras
lermont city officials envision safer city
streets with fewer crashes, fewer violators
of traffic laws and greater respect for oth-
er motorists.
They also hope to keep overall costs compar-
atively low for launching a controversial pro-
gram of traffic light cameras.
The city activated 24 cameras at 13 busy in-
tersections last week. Rather than station-
ing police officers at intersections to monitor
speeders, city officials hope to nab red light vio-
lators via modern technology.
The premise is sound. And city officials have
received praise for this initiative.
Red light runners pose a danger to other mo-
torists and themselves.
But red light cameras, while providing the city
with a handy tool and enabling streamlined use
of public money, have their detractors.
It's not all Mayberry for many cities who have
installed the cameras.
The cost of using the cameras may come on
an unexpected front: The loss of reputation and
damage to public image.
Some cities suffer in the arena of public re-
lations, something that is difficult to restore
when word spreads about a new "speed trap."
After so many citations are issued from red
light cameras, it becomes a matter of public im-
age lost. And regaining that is an uphill pursuit.
Red light cameras may initially bring positive
returns, but may lead to unwelcome byproducts
- no one wants to go to those cities with cam-
eras for fear of a surprise traffic citation by mail.
Red light cameras to an extent remove
the human element. While initially intimidat-
ing, dealing with a police officer is easier than
discovering you've violated the traffic law some
days previously from a letter in the mail.
While we don't necessarily oppose the use of
red light cameras (some cities have had success
with their implementation), we urge Clermont
city officials to move with caution. Their aim
is good and their function useful. But cameras
can be abused. Obviously, if the use of cameras
saves lives, then the benefit is apparent.
We're confident Clermont officials' inten-
tions are good. But city leaders should keep a
close watch on the way forward to ensure the
cameras are serving their purpose effectively
and efficiently.
Our advice: Keep your eyes on the big picture.
And be prepared, if the circumstances warrant,
to change direction or take this initiative to the
next level.
That is, after all, what you're asking motorists
in Clermont to do.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Someone tell me why I Seeking God is key
should vote Democrat to nation's success


I think I have this right. If not
someone write in to correct me.
The Democrats want big-
ger and bigger government,
more rules, more regulation,
and more taxes, which means
less liberty and less freedom
to make choices because they
think the government knows
what's best for the people.
Republicans want a small
government, less rules, less reg-
ulation, and less in taxes, which
means more liberty and more
freedom to make choices like
it used to be years ago, which
sounds a little like heaven.
I don't understand how any-
one could vote Democrat.
I sure don't understand our
government saying they need
to raise taxes to repair roads
and create jobs in the United
States and then borrowing $72
billion and giving it to Palestine
so they can repair roads and
create jobs for those that don't
even like us.
Now we are buying food,
water, and building supplies
to give to the Philippines after
the typhoon, with borrowed
money.
Why are we trying to support
the whole world with borrowed
money?
Can't the Philippine govern-
ment borrow money? There
is no such thing as unlimited
credit.
What happens when the plug
is put back in the hole? Sounds
scary, doesn't it? When that
happens you will be sorry you
don't own a gun, as the things
that will disappear will be all
the free stuff.
THOMAS H. ABREHAMSEN I Eustis


Telephone solicitors
growing in number
The message on my machine
said, "This is... I sold you your
Lincoln insurance policy and I
want to go over some changes
with you. Call me at..." I did not
recall the man's name or having
ever bought a Lincoln anything.
I returned the call, spoke to
the gentleman and asked "Who
are you? What do you want? I do
not have a Lincoln anything."
The man said it was part
of Central Florida Insurance.
Another unknown.
Notice how easily he slid by
and ignored the initial machine
message of, "I sold you your
Lincoln insurance policy."
We are in treacherous times,
vulnerable to liars and scam
people. Dig in your heels and
say "no." Seniors are trusting
but not dumb.
RUTHIE KELLY I The Villages


These words embody the es-
sence and spirit of our founding
fathers:
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are
created equal and are endowed
by their creator with certain un-
alienable rights, that among
these are the pursuit of Life,
Liberty and Happiness..."
Russ Sloan in his Sept. 29
"Bottom Line" column has
it right. Marvin Jacobson, in
his Nov. 10, OtherVoices arti-
cle, has the hollow ring of po-
litical correctness that can't
abide with any notion of divine
providence in the birth of our
country.
As with most secularists the
emphasis regarding the very
spirit of America is denial.
I dare say, the vast majority
of government deliberations at
all levels since the birth of our
country has been to seek di-
vine guidance, in recognizing
a moral authority higher than
man.
Spin masters nearly always
look at American history with
the view that our founding fa-
thers did not need to thank God
for the blessings of liberty and
those that do should be prohib-
ited in doing so.
If you believe that was the
philosophy of our founding fa-
thers, then you must assume
they took greater comfort and
confidence in all things man
made over things of spirit and
faith.
Revising American histo-
ry seems so important to those
with an agenda of, the govern-
ment knows what's best for you!
As an aside, we all ought to
offer prayers for all those veter-
ans that paid such a high price
for all the rest of us to live free
with the God-given right to pray
for divine guidance anywhere,
anytime we want.
NICK JONES I Clermont


CALLING ALL VETERANS
If you know of
a veteran living in
Lake, Sumter or
Marion counties
whose name should
be added to the
Lake County Veter-
ans Memorial, call
352-314-2100, or
Hgo to to www.lakevet-
erans.com.


Traffic offenders should
lose driver's license
A few (weeks) ago you pub-
lished a story about a driver
who stopped another vehicle in
a rage because he did not think
it was going fast enough or
stayed too long at a stop sign.
The man ended up beating
the driver, punching his mother
and smashing the car windows
with a bat.
Fortunately witnesses stayed
nearby and got involved to do
justice. The man was arrested
and punished.
Unfortunately, those of us
who drive around Lake County
a lot see these types every day.
Indeed, I believe from the de-
scription that I also encoun-
tered this person recently.
I was fortunate that I did not
allow him to force me to stop,
but he tried, beeping his horn
and cutting in front of me,
slowing down, etc.
My question to authorities, to
Judge Miller and to Voices writ-
ers is, "Why do we allow such
a person to keep their driving
privileges?
Should not a person convict-
ed of road rage lose their li-
cense as part of their punish-
ment? Isn't this just as bad as
texting while driving?"
CHARLIE WELCOME I Tavares

Use unclaimed LOTTO
money to help people
I wonder where all this un-
claimed lottery money goes. In
a recent newspaper article it
said the jackpot would be re-
turned to the lottery "members"
in their proportion of sales for
the jackpot rollover series.
People who buy these tickets
are the ones who make these
payouts.
It's the taxpayers money they
use.
Why can't the lottery use the
unclaimed money to put into
a disaster fund or in a charity
fund.
These funds would go back to
the taxpayers for a good cause.
If we wait for the govern-
ment to aid in these disasters,
it would be like trying to get
blood out of a turnip.
If it was not for the taxpay-
ers who support these needs we
as taxpayers would be in more
trouble than we are now.
I'm for using the unclaimed
lottery money to support our
needs. Our existence here on
earth is to help one another,
not to see who has the largest
bank account.
God help us!

CHURCH
FROM PAGE Al

The facility comes
with 45 acres, 25 of
which are vacant.
"If we were to go
through with this pur-
chase, we'd not only
have the largest meet-
ing facility in all of Lake
County, but we'd have
25 vacant acres for fu-
ture expansion or prop-
erty we could sell,"Gray
said.
Blankenship said the
council would have
to set aside an addi-
tional $500,000 for re-
pairs and cleaning of
the roof, the pool and
the air conditioning
system, among other
things.
Van Zile said the
city explored financ-
ing proposals from 22
banks but recommend-
ed two options offered
by BB&T Bank. One is a
20-year loan to be paid
off in 15 years, with a
4.28 percent fixed rate,
an annual debt ser-
vice of $516,703, a to-
tal interest payment
of $1,726,143 and a
12-month maximum


lease for the church.
The staff's pre-
ferred option, how-
ever, is a 15 year loan
with BB&T to be paid
off in 15 years with a
fixed rate of 2.75 per-
cent an annual debt
service of $567,176,
and total interest pay-
ment of $1,560,126 and
a 9-month maximum
lease for the church.
Gray said recreation
and impact fees could
be used to pay the debt
service and that the op-
erating costs for the
building would be about
$1 million for the 15-
year life of the loan.
Jim Purvis, a Cler-
mont resident, spoke
in support of the pur-
chase, arguing that the
city could purchase the
building cheaper than
it could build a new
one of comparable size.
"This city will have
the opportunity to
move forward 20 years
in one fell swoop and
you'll make a lot of
people happy who at-
tended the three vi-
sioning sessions over
the summer (to ex-
press what they wanted
to see in Clermont),"


Purvis said.
Ann Dupee, another
resident told the council
to quit talking about it
and get on with the pur-
chase.
"How wonderful this
would be. What a steal.
You could not begin to
build something like
this for that," she said
"We have gone so many
years in this city not pro-
viding services for the
people but with this we
would have so much, a
pool for the kids, a stage
for performances... the
sky's the limit."
Council members
mulled various possi-
bilities for the building,
suggesting that a num-
ber of city departments
could locate there, in-
cluding Public Works,
Police and even the Tax
Collector.
"If we move forward
with this, the worst
case scenario would
be to start renting the
building out. But if we
move those depart-
ments there, the costs
go down," Council-
man Keith Mullins said.
"There's a tremendous
amount of opportunity
before us and I under-
stand we have to decide
by Dec. 10, but we won't
really know for sever-
al months what we re-
ally want to do with the
building."


Cameras not money



makers in Groveland


ROXANNE BROWN I Staff Writer
roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com
Groveland has been using a pair
of red light cameras since 2010,
raising public awareness but not a
lot of money, officials say.
Some 3,000 tickets have been is-
sued to people speeding through
the intersection of Orange Street
(State Road 50) and North Lake Av-
enue, and only 300 have been chal-
lenged, said hearing officer Wendy
Joiner, who is also executive assis-
tant to Police Chief Melvin Tenny-
son.
But the time and effort spent in
reviewing the challenges, along
with a state revenue share the city
hadn't anticipated, means the pro-
gram hasn't made Groveland a lot
of money.
"Essentially, what it gets down
to, is that with the two cameras, it
wasn't worth it," Interim City Man-
ager Willie Morgan said. "You have
to tie up an officer to review the
tapes, or the photos and film of the
disputes, and for a small depart-
ment, it takes so much time that
it ends up being feasibly unjustifi-
able."
When American Traffic Solutions
first approached the city about us-
ing its cameras in July 2009, the
state wasn't interested in getting a
share of the revenue, Morgan said.


This changed soon after the cam-
eras were installed, the constitu-
tionality of them was raised state-
wide, and the Florida Legislature
mandated a portion of the profits
go the Department of Revenue in
July 2010.
Groveland has a five year, $120,000
contract with American Traffic Solu-
tions, meaning it pays them $24,000
a year for the cameras.
The state claims $113 from each
$158 ticket issued, leaving munici-
palities with $45 in revenue before
setting aside money for the camera
company.
"They (red light cameras) are
definitely not money makers for
the city, but they are slowing down
the traffic," Morgan said. "There is
a lot of traffic that comes through
here and, in my opinion, the cam-
eras are preventing some acci-
dents, from the perspective of the
fire department responding to the
scene."
Morgan is the fire chief of Grove-
land as well as its interim city man-
ager.
Joiner made similar comments.
"They've helped slow people
down and they've helped us as far
as citations in some accidents, be-
cause we were able to see what re-
ally happened since our cameras
were on when they (accidents) oc-
curred," she said.

Amassed a diverse legacy of heroes,

ancient heritage in full color through dance
and music. Over the past 2 years, Shen

"It was an extraordinary experience;'

And of course it was exquisitely beautiful.'
Shen Yun captures the spirit of ancient

MONTVERDE


Lake Minneola tops The Rock


FRANK JOLLEY I Staff Writer
frank.jolley@dailycommercial.com
Lake Minneola boys bas-
ketball coach Freddie Cole
said earlier in the week
that he considered Friday's
game against Gainesville
The Rock to be a crucial
test for the Hawks.
They passed with flying
colors.
Lake Minneola used a
swarming, suffocating de-
fense to bury the Lions
with a nearly perfect sec-
ond quarter en route to a
78-47 victory at the Center
Stage Classic on the Mills
Championship Court at
the Montverde Academy
Fieldhouse.
Lake Minneola broke
open a close game in
the second quarter with
an overwhelming dis-
play of total basketball.
The Hawks sealed off The
Rock's passing lanes with
its zone defense and used
its quickness to beat the Li-
ons down the floor for a se-
ries of run out baskets that
were created off turnovers.
At the same time, Lake
Minneola's offense fed off
its defense, with Antho-
ny Brown draining three
3 pointers in the second
quarter and twin brother
Avery Brown scoring inside
the arc. Anthony Brown
had 17 points in the first
half and Avery Brown to-
taled 15.
On the defensive end,
Marcus Dodson energized
Lake Minneola's trapping
defense that rattled and
confused the Lions.
The result was a 28-3 out-
burst that gave the Hawks a
42-14 lead at intermission.
As the quarter pro-
gressed, the Hawks' base-
line-to-baseline play drew
increasingly audible re-
sponses from stands from
fans many of whom

were early arrivals for tour-
nament hosts Montverde
Academy's game that
would cap off the evening.
No matter their allegiance,
fans took the time to ap-
preciate Lake Minneola's
high-octane effort.
In the second half, Lake
Minneola continued to
build on to its lead us-
ing the same frenetic at-
tack that created havoc in
the first two quarters. The
Hawks led late in the third
quarter and early in the
fourth before Lake Minne-
ola coach Freddie Cole be-
gan to empty his bench.
Anthony Brown led all
scorers with 25 points, fol-


lowed by Avery Brown with
23. Chris Weech added 19
for Lake Minneola (8-0).
MitchellWilbekin led The
Rock (6-2) with 14 points,
followed by DeVaughn Jen-
kins with 11.
In the opening game
of the tournament, Olds-
mar Christian overcame a
sluggish start with a dom-
inant second quarter to
walk away with a 63-41 win
against Haines City.
Oldsmar Christian strug-
gled to get to the basket in
the first quarter, despite
enjoying a decided height
advantage over the Hor-
nets, which had no play-
er taller than 6-foot-3. At


times, the Eagles had three
players on the floor who
were at least 6-foot-7.
In the second quarter,
however, Oldsmar Chris-
tian began to take com-
mand around the basket
and used a 17-0 scoring
run in the first 5 minutes,
30 seconds of the period to
open up a 10-point lead.
The Eagles built onto
their lead in the second
half, leading eventually by
as many as 24 points.
Isiah Manderson led
Oldsmar Christian (8-1)
with 15 points, followed by
Corin Mouzon with 11.
Jack Tisdale and Der-
win James paced Haines

It's not how you play
in November and De-
cember, but how you
well you perform in
January and February.
That's the adage for
many area high school
basketball teams, some
of which peak too soon
and make an early
postseason exit after a
blistering start to the
season.
Leesburg girls coach
Mark Oates got a
glimpse of his team's
potential on Dec. 3
when the Yellow Jackets


overcame a slow start
and picked up a 61-53
road win against Lake
Minneola in a Class
6A-District 6 contest.
Leesburg got contri-
butions from Jada Perry
and Adrienne Jackson
in the win. Perry re-
corded a double-dou-
ble with 23 points, 17
rebounds to lead the
Yellow Jackets. Jackson
added 16 points and
seven rebounds.
For Lake Minneo-
la, Kayla Reaves led the
way with 16 points.
Leesburg improved
to 2-3 on the season.

The darkest

moment in

sports history
without shame or hesita-
tion, I admit that I am an
Alabama football fan.
I have been for as long as I can
remember.
Most who know me under-
stand where my college football
allegiance lie. I'm often spotted
at games proudly wearing an Al-
abama hat or, if weather per-
mits, a Crimson Tide hoodie.
I wore my colors through the
dark days of the Mike Dubose
and Mike Shula eras, just as I
wear them now in the halcyon
days of the Nick Saban era.
My family all Gators look
at me as a somewhat misguided
football fan but accept me and
allow me to watch Crimson Tide
games in relative solitude in our
living room. During games, they
often disperse throughout the
house when I slam the recliner
into "full recline."
It's an idyllic way to spend
Saturday afternoons in the fall,
when I'm not stuck in front of
my office computer, putting to-
gether pages for our Sunday
sports section.
That is, it was until Nov. 30.
What started out as a great
day turned into a nightmare in
a flash, or rather, a missed field
goal.
A missed field goal that was
returned.
A missed field goal that was
returned and converted into a
touchdown.
A missed field goal that was
returned and converted into a
touchdown against Alabama on
the final play of the Iron Bowl,
giving their biggest rival an up-
set win and likely costing the
Crimson Tide a shot at a third
straight national championship.
There.
I said it.
Even now, more than a week
after the single darkest moment
in football history, it still hurts to
think about it.
But, it's over.
Alabama lost the game.
Our biggest rival won and will
get a shot to play for the nation-
al title.
Believe me, that's not some-
thing I'm looking forward to
seeing.
In fact, I lent my moral sup-
port to Missouri for the South-
eastern Conference champion-
ship game in Atlanta.
I simply cannot cheer for Au
... bu ...
My fingers just cramped up.
I can't even type the word.
To show its fans a little re-
spect after all, their team beat

Lady Jackets improve with 61-53 win










Montverde Academy cruises to 91-56 victory


FRANK JOLLEY I Staff Writer
frankjolley@dailycommercial.com
Opponents understand
they have nothing to lose
when they play the Eagles.
Deerfield Beach players
used that logic at the start
of Saturday's game against
Montverde Academy at the
Center Stage Classic on the
Mills Championship Court
in the Montverde Academy
Fieldhouse.
The Bucks played loose,
crashed the boards on
missed shots and chased
down errant passes. For the
first 12 minutes, that strat-
egy worked as Deerfield
Beach kept the score close.
As the game wore on, how-
ever, Montverde Acade-
my's length and superior tal-
ent took over and the Eagles
cruised to a 91-56 victory.
Ben Simmons paced
the Eagles throughout. He
scored 18 points in the first

FROM PAGE B1

Alabama I will not refer
to them as I usually do. But,
that's the best I can offer.
I'm not even sure what
nickname to use with them.
Technically, I guess, they're
the Tigers, but the battle cry
is "War Eagle" and a bald ea-
gle often flies around the sta-
dium and lands at midfield
prior to every home game.
A majestic bird, indeed,
but hardly one that can be
mistaken for a tiger.
I know those in the Gator
Nation who know me prob-
ably enjoyed the game and
its outcome. I received texts
from friends who used thin-
ly veiled attempts to check
on my health as a way to


half and helped Montverde
Academy break open a close
game with an 11-0 run to
take a 38-23 halftime lead.
The scoring run contin-
ued into the second half,
eventually stretching into a
16-0 streak. It ended at the
6 minute 42-second mark of
the third quarter when Eu-
gene Harvey sank the sec-
ond of two technical foul
free throws.
By the time Harvey sank
the charity shot, Montverde
Academy had extended its
lead to 45-26.
As the second half wore
on, the Eagles' press fueled
their transition offense with
countless fast-break baskets.
The Bucks became frustrat-
ed with the defensive pres-
sure, which forced even
more turnovers.
Montverde Academy (8-
0) doubled the Bucks' point
production midway through
third quarter at 54-27 and

find some satisfaction from
my misery.
That's OK.
I deserved it.
Besides, I certainly en-
joyed myself at the expense
of the Gator Nation this sea-
son.
But I digress. Then again,
any reference to the Gators
is a digression.
It is true, though. I suf-
fered greatly after this year's
Iron Bowl.
For about an hour after
that play ended the game, I
sat silently and stared at the
television. I didn't see any-
thing on the screen, but I
watched anyway.
My wife came in to make
sure I was OK and left me
alone.
My son eventually tried to
ease my pain with logic. He


easily weathered runs by
Deerfield Beach. The Eagles
led by as many as 37 points
and the final 3:30 of the
game was played with a run-
ning clock.
Simmons turned in what
might have his most-dom-
inant performance of the
season. The 6-foot-8 junior,
who has already commit-
ted to Louisiana State Uni-
versity, dominated around
the basket defensively, al-
tering countless shots and
produced a highlight reel of
dunks or play at the rim.
Simmons led all scorers
with 27 points. Justin Bibbs
poured in 19 points, while
Ahmaad Rorie and Chris Egi
scored 13 points apiece.
For Deerfield Beach (5-1),
Marvin Jean-Pierre led the
way with 17 points, followed
by Vanderbilt Carpenter
with nine.
Also on Saturday, Mount
Dora Bible became the third

sat with me and said, "Dad-
dy, I'm sure they did their
best."
I was most definitely hurt-
ing.
But, that goes along with
being a fan. I survived the
Chicago Cubs and the "Bart-
man Game" Game 6 of
the 2003 National League
Championship Series -
when a Cubs fan reached for
a foul ball and kept Moises
Alou from recording an out.
Of course, the Cubs went
on to lose that game and
dropped Game 7 to miss out
on their first appearance in
the World Series since 1945.
After Bartman, I told my-
self if could survive that, I
can make it through any-
thing.
But, I wasn't prepared for
the 2013 Iron Bowl.


Lake County team to play
in the two-day tournament
with an early game against
Palm Bay Heritage. Lake
Minneola blasted Gaines-
ville The Rock on Friday and
Montverde Academy also
played Friday, beating St. Pe-
tersburg Lakewood.
The Bulldogs kept the re-
cord of area teams in the
tournament undefeated
with a 78-63 victory, behind
the dominant scoring com-
bination of Lamar Smith and
Zac Ward, who combined to
score 66 of Mount Dora Bi-
ble's 78 points.
Mount Dora Bible came
out of the gates with a ra-
dar-like shooting touch be-
hind the 3-point line. Seven
of the Bulldogs' first 10 bas-
kets were from 3-point land.
Smith got Mount Dora Bi-
ble (4-1) out of the gates
quickly by scoring the team's
first seven points of the
game. Smith scored in the

Like Alabama, I didn't bring
my best game to the gridiron
... err... the living room. Per-
haps I didn't drink enough
"pop" before the game or
maybe I was wearing the
wrong jersey. Whatever the
reason, I felt a little "off." I was
a step slow coming out of the
recliner or off the couch to
cheer big plays. When offi-
cials needed assistance mak-
ing a critical call, I was not
prepared to help them.
When that dark moment
happened and football
changed forever, I couldn't
get up quick enough and
urge my team on to make
the tackle.
I saw that return as it hap-
pened and a couple more
times on replay.
I will never watch it again.
There are some things you


paint and from behind the
arc and had 12 points at half-
time.
When the Panthers' de-
fense began to key on
Smith, Ward stepped up and
drained four 3 pointers in
the opening eight minutes.
Ward added three traditional
baskets to score 18 points in
the first half to lead the Bull-
dogs into intermission.
Behind Ward and Smith,
Mount Dora Bible took a 36-
28 lead into the locker room.
The Bulldogs got point pro-
duction from only four play-
ers in the first half Ward,
Smith, Chad Simmons and
Zach Brock.
The second half was a car-
bon copy of the first, with
Smith and Ward keeping up
their torrid shooting. Palm
Bay Heritage tried to slow
down Smith, who did most
of his damage on drives to
the basket, by sending him
to the free throw line.

see and never forget where
you were when they hap-
pened.
The assassination of Presi-
dent Kennedy was one.
So was man walking on
the Moon.
The final play of the 2013
Iron Bowl was not.
I don't want to remember.
The wound is much too
fresh and the pain too in-
tense.
Soon, the gash will heal
and the hurt will subside.
When the Crimson Tide
plays again, likely in the Or-
ange Bowl against Clemson,
I'll be dressed to the nines in
Alabama attire.
The love for my football
team will never change.

Laser Periodontal TherapyTM
Laser Periodontal TherapyTM is a laser-based approach to gum disease using an
Nd:YAG free running pulsed laser requiringspecific knowledge and skills drawn from
the whole dentistry. To you the patients this means: less pain, less bleeding, less
swelling, less tissue removed, less down time, and less recovery time which is
decidedly less costly to you and your employer. The reasons we use Laser Periodontal
Therapy are to: remove only the diseased tissue without removing any of the healthy
tissue, maintain the height of the tissue around teeth, minimize pain and discomfort to
the patient, get a closure of the periodontal pocket wound and allow healing to take
place. Controlling periodontal disease makes it possible to
save and restore otherwise hopeless involved teeth.

Montverde church will put on



ambitious Living Nativity event


ROXANNE BROWN I Staff Writer
roxanne.brown@dailycommercial.com
Woodlands Luther-
an Church, at 15333
County Road 455 in
Montverde, is presenting
its 22nd annual Living Na-
tivity for two nights this
week.
The event will feature
20-minute walk-though
tours of what church ad-
ministrator and event co-
ordinator Emma Loughrey
called 'the greatest sto-
ry ever told.' The tours
are scheduled to begin at
7 p.m. today and Friday.
Loughrey said the event
was started shortly after
Woodlands was established
nearly 25 years ago and
since then has continued
to grow in both cast and at-
tendance.
"Our living nativity has
gone from what first began
as mainly a portrayal of the
manger scene, by a handful
of church members, with
lots of animals, that last-
ed for one night," Loughrey
said. "This year, more than
200 people are participat-
ing and will be acting out
nine scenes. That includes
the manger scene, which
is probably the most poi-
gnant of all the scenes."
Loughrey said the man-
ger scene will feature a
live baby, and a rendition
of Silent Night played on
the auto harp by two local
women.
The Living Nativity is be-

for one night. This year, more than 200 people are

Emma Loughrey,
event coordinator


ing presented by more than
150 members of Woodland
Lutheran's congregation.
Those taking the tour are
treated to pre-walk enter-
tainment which includes skit
and Christmas sing-a-longs.
Guides will lead guests


through scenes depicting
significant moments in the
life of Christ, including one
with prophets telling of Je-
sus' coming, the night of Je-
sus' birth featuring 47 an-
gels and shepherds and a
day in the market place.


Every act includes guest
interaction and a market-
place scene will include a
chicken or two, a donkey,
rabbits, authentic wares,
and a few tasty morsels,
Loughrey said. The cast for
the event numbers more
than 200.
The event is free, but vis-
itors are asked to donate
canned goods and other
non perishable food items
for those in need.
For information, call
Woodlands Lutheran
Church at 407-469-2525.

A weekly column that reprints
some of the more interest-
ing news stories that have ap-
peared over the years in the
pages of the South Lake Press.


HURRICANE DONNA
HITS SOUTH LAKE
Hurricane Donna winked
her capricious eye at South
Lake County Sun., Sept. 11,
and came close to flattening
the entire landscape.
Fifty-year-old Live Oak trees
were uprooted and tossed
playfully across power lines,
and buildings and secondary
roads were blocked complete-
ly in some instances.
Route 455 into Montverde
was blocked in at least two
places by fallen light poles
and trees, and many other
county roads and streets were
made impassable by storm
debris.


Fishing camps in Mont-
verde suffered most of the
storm's damage in lost boats
and docks, and many of the
town's residents took ref-
uge in the Montverde Bap-
tist Chapel, where Mrs.
George Craw ministered to
storm-frightened people.
Driving rains raised the lev-
el of many county lakes, but
most water damage was con-
fined to the community on
Lake Shepherd near Highway
27, where most of the homes
are now surrounded by flood
level water. Another inch of
rain will send residents of the
community from their homes
and will cover Highway 27 at


that point.
Severe damage to the Lake-
side Cottages in Minneo-
la was reported by the owner
Mrs. LucyWoodruff. (Current
site of The Oaks) A large tree
narrowly missed crushing a
trailer parked on the proper-
ty, and the entire area, a mesh
of fallen wires, looked like a
plate of spaghetti.
Early Sunday morning Cler-
mont was a maze of shattered
trees and tipped power poles,
streets were blocked, electric-
ity cut off and roofs and signs
were torn off or bent to im-
possible angles.
School damage was com-
paratively severe in Cler-


mont seven broken win-
dows and five damaged trees
were reported. Grounds cus-
todian William Lashley, Sr.
said a leak in a portion of
the new building resulted
in two rooms full of water
"You could swim in." He said
he measured over 105 gal-
lons pumped from two of the
rooms.
It was verified by the Mc-
Dill Radar Tracking Station
(in Tampa) that the eye of the
storm passed directly over
the Clermont area. They re-
ported the center of the
storm passed over this area at
2:05 a.m.

Deciphering the language and



limits of coupons can be tricky


recently while
shopping for our
Holiday dinner
I had a great conver-
sation with my favor-
ite store manager. She
really cares about her
customers and said
the two questions new
couponers most fre-
quently ask are about
stacking coupons and
printing online cou-
pons. This is very true;
this is also one of the
questions I get the most.
If you have questions or
just want to share your
savings store, please
email Tanya@Divine-
Savings.com.
Q What does "Stack-
ing a coupon"
mean?
A Stacking a coupon
is the act of using
a store coupon and a
manufacturer coupon
together on the same
item. You can do this at
many stores. For exam-
ple, Target, Walgreens,
Publix, Winn Dixie and
even your drug stores
CVS and Walgreens.
This is a great way to
save more on the items
that you need and re-
duce your grocery bud-
get every month. Buy-
ing an item on sale is
the first step to saving,
but when you can use
a manufacturer cou-
pon PLUS a store cou-
pon on the same item,
that is simply Divine
Savings! For exam-

pie, bread is on sale
this week at your gro-
cery store and the store
has a coupon for $1 off
the bread, while you
also have a manufac-
turer coupon for $1 off
the bread. You can use
both coupons on that
one package of bread.
Many times this will
result in free, or a sav-
ings of 75 percent or
more on many items.
What does one-per-
person, one-pe-
purchase mean on the
coupon?
A This is a very good
question. Deci-


NEIGHBOR
FROM PAGE C1

2) Name a person or incident you've
come across recently that's touched you
in some way. Why did this person or inci-
dent impress you so much?
Marie Roberts has been a life-long role
model to me. She's always been very influ-
ential in my life. Recently, Marie spoke at
Edge Memorial United Methodist Church's
104th anniversary celebration on the im-
portance the church has played throughout
her life, and her words touched me. She is
the perfect example of how one should live
their life and continues to inspire me over
and over again.


phering the fine print
at the bottom of the
coupon can be diffi-
cult at best. Manufac-
turers are starting to
put limits in this part
of the coupon." Lim-
it 4 like items per cus-
tomer" simply means
that you can only buy
four of the same body
washes with four like
coupons. One-per-cus-
tomer, one-per-pur-
chase simply means
that if you want to buy
two jars of pasta sauce
and use a $1 off cou-
pon, you will need two
coupons for this pur-
chase. You cannot use
one coupon to cover
both jars.
Q Can I use expired
coupons at the
store?
A No, typically you
cannot use expired
coupons at the store.
The only exception to
this is if your store has
a policy to accept ex-
pired coupons up to
a certain date. Check
with each store indi-
vidually to see what
their policy is on ex-
pired coupons. You can
send your expired cou-
pons to the military
where they can be used
up to six months past
the expiration date.
You can find address-
es on www.DivineSav-
ings.com and www.
Coupsfortroops.com.


3) How does what you do contribute to
the welfare of the area?
I am very proud of my position at Grove-
land Elementary because I am in charge of
the before and after school program, with
more than 100 children enrolled. This is
a program designed for children to have a
safe, familiar place to be after school, with
fun activities that compliment their educa-
tional experience.
4) Name one of your greatest accomplish-
ments so far.
I had the privilege of working with my sis-
ter, Doris Bloodsworth, who is a Pulit-
zer-nominated author, on the book Legend-
ary Locals of Lake County published by
Arcadia Publishing January of 2013.

DUPEE
FROM PAGE Cl

Highest winds, as re-
ported by The Citrus
Tower were clocked at
97 miles per hour. The
barometer went down
to 28.60.
Spokesman Ray Co-
chran said Tower dam-
age included a broken
cable on the new sign,
which was bent to a
10-degree angle by the


winds, and a window,
broken by a previous
storm and repaired,
was cracked by Donna
as she swept thorough
South Lake County.
Most road signs, Co-
chran said, within a 15-
mile radius of the Tow-
er were flattened.
There was little dam-
age to the downtown
areas of Clermont and
Groveland. Thoughtful
storeowners had taped
and boarded up win-


dows, and power lines
showed an unusu-
al amount of tenacity
for the area by mainly
staying in place.
Over 160 people took
refuge from the storm
in shelter areas of Cler-
mont.
In Groveland, May-
or Joe Fairchild desig-
nated the High School
as the shelter area and
placed Frank Farr,
chairman of the Hous-
ing Committee of Civil


Defense, in charge.
Over 366 people were
housed in the Grove-
land school during the
storm and included
residents of Mascotte,
Groveland, Howey-in-
the-Hills, Clermont,
Cler-Grove, Tampa,
Greenwood City and
Leesburg.
Frank Farr was the
only accident victim in
regard to Donna's fury.
He reported for duty on
Saturday evening with
a badly infected toe.
And during the course
of the evening, had it
trod on by a lady of
somewhat large dimen-
sions. No other case in
South Lake County re-
quired the use of medi-
cal supplies.
11,428 STUDENTS IN
LAKE'S SCHOOLS
Lake County School
Superintendent, L.J.
"Joe" Jenkins report-
ed that 11,428 stu-
dents registered for the
first day of the 1960-61


school year. This is an
increase of 534 students
over last year's opening
day registration.
Marvin Styles, su-
pervising principal of
the Clermont-Minne-
ola schools, assigned
faculty members: 1st
grade, Mrs. Roy Cald-
well; 2nd grade, Mrs.
Lillian Hunt, Mrs. Reg-
inald Cook, Mrs. Getha

The South Lake Press would like
to thank Doris Bloodsworth of the
South Lake Chamber of Commerce,
an accomplished author and one
of the area's most celebrated
historians, for her contributions
to this project. Bloodsworth's
comprehensive published histories
of south Lake communities proved
to be vital research tools for this
publication. We highly recommend
Bloodsworth's illuminating literary
works, Legendary Locals of Lake
County, which she authored with
Connie Fleetwood; Images of
America: Groveland; and Images
of America: Clermont.
No history of the South Lake Press
and south Lake County would be
complete without the contributions
of former South Lake Press owner
and publisher Ann Dupee. Dupee
is a long-time owner of the SLP and
continues to serve the community
as a columnist and activist.

hat is south Lake? Technically, it's an amalgam of towns and communities
that includes Clermont, Groveland, Mascotte, Minneola and Montverde.
But south Lake is much more than its geographical boundaries. It is rich
with history, a place filled with colorful personalities and landmark events that
sculpted a colorful narrative for one of the most unique areas in Florida.
Much of that narrative is etched in the pages of the area's newspaper, the South
Lake Press, which debuted in 1913 as the Clermont Clarion and continues to this
day as an important chronicle of the area's people and happenings.
For 100 years, this newspaper has documented the community's startling
transformation from agricultural mecca to modern-day boomtown. It has
witnessed two devastating freezes that obliterated crops and forced the area to
reinvent itself in creative ways. It has followed the efforts of community pioneers
who were drawn to the area by opportunity and found it in the rolling hills north
of Orlando. And it has examined -- often questioned the decisions of the
area's powerful policy-makers as they worked to craft a successful future for south
Lake County.
It is impossible, in one small publication, to capture all the nuance of such a
brilliant past. Rather, in the pages that follow, we've tried to offer glimpses 100
glimpses, to be exact- of the community from its inception to today.
We hope that through these pages you gain an appreciation for the amazing
place that you live and the people and events that molded it.
Join us now for a trip through the 100 years of the South Lake Press.

THE SOUTH LAKE PRESS:


4/4itw vte3 mik46i'4 /OO ',neaz/0


n many ways, the appear-
ance of south Lake County's
own newspaper in 1913 herald-
ed a new beginning for an area
that had been dealt a devastat-
ing blow.
In the late 1800s, the Clermont
area indeed much of Lake
County had been an agricul-
tural mecca. Its main cash crop,
surprisingly, was tomatoes, not
the oranges and other citrus for
which Florida would later become
known.
But in the winter of 1895, a cat-
astrophic freeze wiped out those
crops in a single day, and entire
farming families bolted for warm-
er climates. Over the next few
years, toma-


toes gave way to turpentine and
timber as the area's population
and employment began to tick up
again.
This growth in industry and
population begged for the cre-
ation of a newspaper that could
keep the populace apprised of the
area's transformation.
The Clermont Clarion burst
onto the scene in 1913 whenW.E.
Rorabaugh, a transplant from
Des Moines, Iowa, published the
first edition from a small wooden
building at 713 Montrose Street.
The paper came out each Thurs-
day, and the annual subscription
rate was just $1.25.

home base of operations, the pa-
per wasted no time establishing
its identity as a south Lake Coun-
ty newspaper. The inaugural edi-
tion included front-page stories
from Montverde, Groveland and
Minneola, as well as a smattering
of national and regional news.
Among those front-page offer-
ings:
A story about "Farm Folks,"
a four-act play performed at the
Montverde Industrial School
A notice about the birth of a
nine-pound baby boy to T.J. Rice
"and wife."
A story about President Wil-
liam H. Taft speaking on behalf of
the Monroe Doctrine before the
Ne\\ York Peace SOcierN
The I ie re also appeared a greeriiig


from Rorabaugh, the publisher:
"A few months ago when our
having a newspaper was suggest-
ed, many told us it was out of the
question, 'town is too small,' 'not
enough advertisers,' etc., but here
we are and you will see by look-
ing through our columns that at
least the last objection mentioned
above is not true.
'As to the size of the town, if we
look at our possibilities, we are as
large as any other town in Central
Florida," the column continues.
In 1921, John C. Lochner of Au-
burn, Ind., and his son, Don,
moved to Clermont and opened
their own newspaper, which they
dubbed tie South Lake Press.

Later that year, they bought the
Clarion from Rorabaugh. With-
in a few months, the Lochner's
were publishing a number of pa-
pers out of a complex of build-
ings on Montrose Street, includ-
ing the South Lake Press, Winter
Garden Herald, Florida State C.E.
New-, Montverde Outlook and
Orange Echos. The Echos was a
mo n thly bulletin of the Orange
Coi n iiry Chamber of Commerce.
IShortly after Pearl Harbor in
1941, lohn Lochner accepted a
government appointment and
imo ed to Jacksonville, but not
before naming John "Red Pep-
per" Davis as the editor. Davis
left before the year was up, and
lie was succeeded by E.J. Hey of
St Petersburg.
Two years later, Sam Peacock
leased the South Lake
Press from the Loch-
ners. He subsequent-
ly changed the name to
the Clermont and South
Lake Press to reflect his
interest in covering all
the south Lake County
communities. But Pea-
cock faced difficulties
and turned operation of
Sthe paper over to his type-
setter, Chet Addington.
Over the next 20 years,
the paper went through a
Number of different own-
ers and managers, some of
whom struggled mightily
to keep the plucky publica-
tion afloat.
In their book, Cler-
mont: Gem of the Hills,
Miriam W Johnson and
Rosemary Young called
the post-World War II
ears in Clermont the "live-
l\ \ears" to reflect a boom in
the population and an uptick
i ii commerce. They credited
the C lermont Press with play-
iiig a role, saying the paper was


"cooperative" in publicizing local
events, sometimes to the point
of exaggeration.
Salvation for the South Lake
Press came in the form of a cou-
ple named George and Ann Du-
pee. George, an advertising exec-
utive for the Wall Street Journal,
and Ann bought the paper in
1968 and ran it until 1992, just
four months shy of 25 years. Ann
carried the mantle even after
George passed away in 1986, and
she has been a clear and passion-
ate voice for the south Lake Coun-
ty community for generations.
And while she was involved
in every aspect of the opera-
tion, Ann's passion was the news.
With her ubiquitous camera, she
scoured the streets and meet-
ing halls of the area reporting on
weighty decisions handed down
by policymakers as well as the
accomplishments of people, in-
stitutions and the community as
a whole.
"Our philosophy was local, lo-
cal, local," Dupee said. "It was an
honor to be able to do it. It was
time-consuming, but I'm very
fortunate to have been able to
do it."
Dupee has long since passed
the torch to other publishers
and editors, but she continues to
write a weekly column, plucking
liberally from old editions of the
South Lake Press to remind the
community about its roots.
Custodianship of the paper
now resides with Halifax Media
Group, which boasts 36 papers
around the Southeast, many of
them in Florida.
The mission remains the same,
however to cover the south
Lake County community thor-
oughly and passionately and, in
doing so, to be a positive influ-
ence on the area.
Or, as the first publisher, Rora-
baugh, said in his opening ad-
dress to readers: "Let us all put
our shoulders to the wheel and
make of Clermont a city of which
we may be justly proud."

Couch, of Clermont, was
inducted into the Professional
Bowlers Association Hall of
Fame in 2012. He was a 16-
time PBA Tour titlist and is the
only bowler to win three straight
PBA Tournament of Champions
titles. Couch isn't alone, though.
Clermont is also home to PBA
champions Norm Duke and
Randy Pedersen.

The Townsends were the first
African American settlers in
the Clermont area, arriving in
1887. James was a farmer and
teacher and Sally was a midwife
who is credited with delivering
thousands of babies in the area.
They founded the first school for
African American children.

Amateis was a noted sculptor
and philanthropist whose works
adorn the Polio Wall of Fame, the
Department of Labor building
in Washington, D.C., and the
Baltimore War Memorial. After
moving to Clermont, Amateis
pursued his love for gardening
and developed the Dorothy
Amateis phododendron, named
after his wife. He also created a
foundation that today supports
Clermont's Cooper Memorial
Library.


Gano owned a tomato-packing
plant and later a sawmill that
provided lumber for many of the
homes and businesses in the
days when south Lake County
was booming.


4w2pee,
Ann Dupee had been an advance publicist for the Ice Capades and
her husband, George, was a former Wall Street Journal executive.
They bought the South Lake Press in 1967 and moved to Clermont.
Dupee continued to run the paper after George's death, serving
as publisher and editor while also filling a role as a local business
leader and activist. She continues to write a column for the paper
called, "Remember When." In addition to her accomplishments in the
publishing field, Dupee is a member of the Lake County Business Hall
of Fame and the Women's Hall of Fame and the Lake-Sumter State
College Hall of Fame. She also served on the Clermont City Council
and was president of the South Lake Chamber of Commerce, South
Lake Kiwanis Clun and Beta Theta ESA.


Seaver was the Clermont postmaster for 32 years but it was his
myriad civic contributions that earned him the community's adoration,
as well as the nickname, "Mr. Clermont." Seaver founded the
Clermont Kiwanis Foundation and Friends of Cooper Memorial Library.
He also served as president of the South Lake County Historical
Society and was a charter member of the South Lake Chamber of
Commerce. His death in 2006 was viewed as a monumental loss
for the community, and it was splashed across the front page of the
South Lake Press.



Tyndal retired as Clermont police chief in 1996 after 37 years of
service. At the time, he was the longest-serving police chief in the
nation, an accomplishment that earned him the praise of President
Bill Clinton and Governor Lawton Chiles.







House was a Pennsylvania senator and justice on New Jersey's
Supreme Court. He moved to Clermont in 1884 and built an
enormous home overlooking Lake Minnehaha. House went on to
become president of the Clermont Improvement Company and he
created the "model town" in south Lake County. He was assisted in
this endeavor by Alfred Beers, Thomas Steele and Arthur Wrotnowski.

Iconic Buildings


,4"CU-0W3 ftl/aqe, clevimx
Clermont's Historic Village, at the
corner of West Avenue and Osceo-
la Street, is a cooperative effort of
the South Lake County Historical
Society and the City of Clermont.
Visitors can get a glimpse into Cl-
ermont's history via free tours of
the seven buildings.
The buildings are:
The Townsend House. Orig-
inally built around 1895, it was
home to Clermont's first black set-
tlers, James and Sally Townsend.
The Kern House. It was built
around 1895 on Montrose Street
and was home to Clermont's first
white settlers, Alexander and Ele-
onora Kern.
The original Cooper Memori-


al Library was erected in 1914 on
West DeSoto Street.
Clermont's Train Depot
stands in its original home at the
Village. In 2011, the depot was re-
furbished and made into an office
and community meeting room.
An original Quonset Hut from
World War II, which served as bar-
racks for servicemen stationed in
Clermont. It is now a World War II
museum.
The outhouse replica, built
between the Kern and Townsend
houses by a local Boy Scout for
his Eagle Scout project.
The Herring Hooks School-
house is a replica of the original
1881 one-room schoolhouse that
stood on the east side of U.S. 27,
north of State Road 50 near Jack's


Lake. Mrs. Thomas J. Hooks was the
teacher at Clermont's first school.


Built in 1956, the Citrus Tow-
er was the state's highest ob-
servation point. The observa-
tion decks offer an unrivaled view
of 2,000 square miles. The tow-
er cost about $250,000 and was
the brainchild of former Pittsburgh
residents Jack Toole and A.W.
Thacker. Toole also founded the
Presidents Hall of Fame next to
the tower, though it was sold later.
A. Wynne Howell of Lakeland, an
understudy for Frank Loyd Wright,
designed a proposal but the win-
ning design came in 1954 from

The Presidents Hall of Fame is a wax muse-
um that serves as a tribute to U.S. presidents.
The owners, John and Jan Zweifel are famed for
building a 20-ton replica of the White House, but
in miniature, complete in every detail from top
to bottom. Since 1976, and up until about two
years ago when it was brought home to the mu-
seum, the miniature traveled the country and
was displayed at various presidential libraries
and at governmental events. Visitors can browse
an array of presidential memorabilia, including a
replica of John F. Kennedy's actual desk as it sat
in the Oval Office and a set of China he and Jack-
ie Kennedy shared.


One of Clermont's most fascinating charac-
ters was Hattie Daggert Millholland. She was a
23-year old single nurse living in Vineland, N.J.,
when she bought property near Crescent Lake.
Hattie's neighbors asked her to help build a ca-
nal that would allow farmers to transport their
crops and supplies. She personally supervised
cutting the 30-foot-wide, 6,000-foot-long canal
that connected Crescent Lake and Lake Minne-
haha. Hattie's dream however, was the three-sto-
ry Log House. It took her brother, James Daggett,
a master builder, nine years to complete. It was
75-feet across, the logs were five inches thick

and the roof was made of 47,000 cypress shin-
gles that lasted 34 years. Log House was popu-
lar for local entertainment and for hunters' lodg-
ing. It was demolished in 1959.

In the late 1880's, a one-room schoolhouse
was built on Broome Street. It was enlarged to
two rooms in 1913-14. In 1921, a group of Cl-
ermont women, headed by Mrs. Kate Chase,
formed the Clermont Civic Club. On April 5, 1927,
the Civic Club was chartered as the current Cler-
mont Woman's Club and incorporated. In 1940,
the clubhouse was used for defense-related proj-
ects during WWII. It was later placed on the Na-
tional Register of Historic Places.


The Groveland Auditorium was one of the larg-
est projects of the Works Progress Administra-
tion, a federally funded program that provided
employment and major improvements to Grove-
land in the late 1930's. The auditorium had a
front entrance for indoor programs and a band
shell in the rear for outdoor concerts. In the
1950's and 1960's, the building was torn down
to make way for the Puryear Building and Veter-
ans Park.


One of the first businesses in Groveland was
turpentine farming, a business that flourished
until a severe drought in 1907 killed the long-
leaf pines, whose sap was the source of the tur-
pentine. When the drought ended the turpentine
business, E.E. Edge built a sawmill to harvest the
lumber. J. Ray Arnold bought the mill and turned
it into the Southeast's largest. At its peak, the
mills owned six locomotives and 100 logging
cars. A ferocious fire destroyed the Arnold saw-
mill in the 1920s, eliminating hundreds of jobs.

%71e gdae a4ew si S"ow, qle/w
By 1923, when the 12,000-square-foot build-
ing was constructed, Edge Mercantile Company
was one of the largest businesses in the state.


The building, on the corner of Broad Street and
Main Avenue, was home to Edge's businesses,
which included groceries, dry goods, shoes, farm
supplies, hardware, furniture, funeral services,
and filling station. E.E. Edge ran the businesses
until his death in 1934. His son, L. D. Edge, who
had been a political star, ran the businesses un-
til his death in 1971.

Montverde Academy is an international, coedu-
cational, independent college preparatory school
for grades PK3-12, with a boarding program serv-
ing grades 7-12, and post-graduate studies.
The school opened on September 23, 1912 in
a two-room wooden building and a church with
two teachers and a small amount of equipment.
Today, the academy educates nearly 1,000 stu-
dents, including more than 300 boarding stu-
dents from 13 states and 48 countries on a 125-
acre campus.

IN 1946, two visionary fruit inspectors, Eu-
gene Busbee of Tampa and William "Norton"
Wilkins of Mount Dora, founded the B&W Fruit
Company in Groveland. At its peak, the company
shipped almost 1 million cases of canned fruit
and 250,000 boxes of fresh fruit. By the follow-
ing year, B&W had become the largest employer
of any canning plant in Florida, with peak payrolls
at $23,000 a week.
A series of freezes in 1983, 1985 and 1989
destroyed nine out of 10 citrus trees in Lake
County, crippling the citrus-processing industry.

In its very early days of Clermont,
tomato farming was a major enter-
prise. The rolling hills in the area were
dotted with tomato farms, and Ar-
chibald Gano built the Crate Mill on
the shore of Lake Minneola to pro-
duce his trademark tomato crates.


Historians Rosemary Johnson and
Miriam Young reported that more than
20 rail cars full of tomatoes were
hauled from the area some days.
The industry suffered a blow from
which it could not recover in the win-
ter of 1894-95, when a deep freeze
decimated crops and chased lo-
cal farmers overnight to warmer cli-
mates. Farms failed quickly, and the
merchants who supported them did
as well, along with some of the mer-
chants' suppliers. Almost instanta-
neously, Clermont's economy implod-
ed, and many families fled.
By 1920, agricultural entrepreneurs
were planting hundreds of acres of cit-
rus, and agriculture began to flourish
again in this area. The Clermont Fruit
Company was formed and brought
people from the Midwest to get a


start in citrus. Within the first four
years, an estimated 100,000 oranges
and grapefruit trees had been plant-
ed, and packing houses and other
businesses rose from the landscape
to support this burgeoning industry.
The citrus industry fared well for
generations, but several freezes in
the 1980s sent citrus the way of the
tomato industry in Lake County. The
final and worst one occurred in the
winter of 1989. While some citrus re-
mains, most of the orange groves and
grapefruit farms have given way to
residential development.

The Clermont Clarion burst onto
the scene in 1913 when W.E. Rora-


baugh, a transplant from Des Moines,
Iowa, published the first edition from
a small wooden building at 713 Mon-
trose Street. The paper came out
each Thursday, and the annual sub-
scription rate was just $1.25.
The paper has continued for 100
years, but perhaps enjoyed its great-
est period of success from 1968,
when Ann and George Dupee pur-
chased it, until the early 1990s. The
paper continues to be a strong voice
for the south Lake County communi-
ty today.

developers who founded the Lake Highlands
Company. Stuart H. Bowman, a real estate man
from Huntington, W.Va., had visited the area and
returned home to recruit another investor.
Together, Bowman and U.S.G. Anderson or-
ganized the Lake Highlands Company and pur-
chased 10,000 acres east and north of Cler-
mont. The men built the Lake Highlands Hotel
as a headquarters and laid out the area's first
subdivision, Clermont Heights. They also in-
stalled utilities and then launched a major mar-
keting campaign to attract homebuyers.

Locals had for years wanted an observation tow-
er that would provide a sweeping view of the roll-
ing hills of Clermont and beyond. It took a couple
of out-of-towners to make it happen. A.W. Thack-
er of Pittsburgh, who retired here in 1952 resolved
to build a grand observation tower the community
so badly wanted. Joining in the venture was Jack
Toole, also from Pittsburgh. They and several oth-
ers created the Florida Towers Corporation.
Construction of the behemoth was started in
June, 1955, and was completed 13 months later.

In 1983, former Citizens' Bank cashier George
Brady recounted how the Ma Barker Gang
robbed his bank twice, once in 1930 and the
second time in 1931.
The first occasion was in December, 1930.
Brady was working the cashier windows at the
front of the bank when two men came through
the front doors, shut them and pulled the shades
on the windows. He recalled that they were wear-
ing motorcycle goggles and white painters uni-
forms with the caps pulled down low over their
eyes. They also wore false mustaches.
The men drew guns on the bank employees,
herded them into the vault and shut it. The
thieves didn't know that one of the bank em-
ployees had rigged the vault door with a wire
that allowed it to be opened from the inside.
The employees waited a few minutes, then
emerged and called the police.
The second robbery occurred on June 16,
1931, according to Miriam Johnson's account.
Brady told her that two men entered the bank
around closing time, pulled the shades and
again ushered the employees into the vault at
gunpoint. This time, the robbers were not dis-
guised, and Brady got a peek at one of them.
The thieves tied up the employees, taped
their hands and shut the door. It took the bank-
ers quite a while to cut themselves loose with a
pocket knife and escape from the vault.
The Barker Gang came to its end some time
later in nearby Ocklawaha, in Marion County.


Neighbors became suspicious of the res-
idents of the home and called the FBI. In a
much-publicized raid, the FBI exchanged gunfire
with the gang, pumping hundreds of bullets into
the old wood home. When they finally entered
the house, they found Ma Barker and some of
her sons dead.
"When the two bodies were in the morgue in
Ocala as no one would claim them a group
from Clermont, including myself, decided to
make the trip to Ocala purely out of curiosity be-
cause they were such a notorious outfit," Brady
recalled. "When I walked through the door, there
was the young fella laid out by his mother the
young boy that had been involved in the second
robbery of our bank."

medical needs of the residents but provide sports,
health and fitness to the community and beyond.
That vision became the National Training Cen-
ter, which debuted in 2001. The complex boasts a
37,000-square-foot fitness facility, an aquatic cen-
ter with a 70-meter heated outdoor pool, athletic
fields and a human performance lab for sports sci-
ence testing.
With help from the State of Florida, NTC added
a 400-meter outdoor track and field complex and
cross country course in 2002.
Today, the National Training Center is a haven
for serious recreational athletes but is also home
base for some of the nation's most accomplished
amateur and professional athletes. Two dozen
Olympians have trained there, including Tyson Gay.

On May 19, 1925, an inferno gutted the Arnold
Sawmill in Groveland, wiping out hundreds of jobs
and dealing a severe blow to the local economy.
According to Groveland historian Doris Blood-


sworth, a new mill was rebuilt at a cost of $7
million. The new mill was liberally supplied with
advanced equipment. It wouldn't be enough to
save the mill, however.
The Great Depression and the growing scarcity
of pine forests ended the mill's glory days and put
Groveland's economy into a tailspin for decades.

---Clermont was founded in 1884 and incorporated in 1916. In 1891, it
.....r ..was already a growing and prosperous town covering 2,000 acres of roll-
ing hills. Like so much of Central Florida, the Big Freeze of 1894-95 devas-
tated crops in this thriving little city, ruining farms and merchants virtually
i ,:,, overnight.
The town charter was abolished soon after and the city was run instead
by a Board of Trade, which did not collect any taxes. Rather, the townspeo-
ple pitched in with donations or volunteered their labor to keep the town
running.
Clermont recovered, enjoying a period of prosperity as citrus farming
took root and the city grew. But by 1929, the city was deeply in debt and
Clermont's bonding company sued to force the city to raise taxes. The
council refused initially, but by 1932, it relented, and taxes soared from
11 mills to 266 mills to 450 mills and finally to 691 mills. Citizens, includ-
ing council members, quit paying their taxes and the city went into bank-
ruptcy in 1939.
Creditors worked out a settlement with the city, and by mid-1940, a siz-
able chunk of the debt was paid.
Clermont's fortunes brightened after that. Ballfields were built, public
works projects ensured and new residents continued to flock to this "Gem
of the Hills," as it was dubbed.





Daniel Sloan, a former Confederate cavalry lieutenant, erected a log
cabin in what is now Groveland and began raising cattle. But it was the
arrival of the Sanford and St. Petersburg line of the Orange Belt Railroad
that made it possible for droves of settlers to come to this quaint Central
Florida outpost.
Commerce began to flourish just before the turn of the century. In
1889, C.C. and B.M. Taylor constructed a turpentine still, labor quarters
and a commissary near what is now the intersection of State Roads 19
and 50. They named the settlement Taylorville.
In 1899, Elliott E. Edge purchased all Taylor's holdings and in 1905
built a general store, the Edge Mercantile Company, and a post office at
the corner of what is now Broad and Main Avenue. Gr I
In 1910, John W. Beach and his associates, including a number of 1& LOA Ave,
Swedes from Rockford, Ill., purchased 20,000 acres from E.E. Edge and
formed the Groveland Development Corporation. The property, called
"Groveland Farms," was divided into small tracts and sold to Northerners,
primarily Swedish Americans. In 1911, after having purchased all of the .---- .
unoccupied portions of Taylorville, Beach had the town platted. The name 0'""14
was changed from Taylorville to Groveland in 1912. .
Groveland was incorporated on March 31, 1922. "

TThe city of Mascotte was officially chartered by the State Legislature on No-
vember 23, 1925. However, the settlement, which became Mascotte, dates
back more than 100 years. In approximately 1885, J.W. Payne, who was original-
P ly from Baltimore and then St. Petersburg, settled in Mascotte and named the
town after a ship, "The S.S. Mascotte", which made regular trips from Boston to
n of St. Petersburg. It was believed that he owned an interest on this ship. The name
Comes from the French spelling of the word mascot and means, animal or thing
supposed to bring good luck.
Mr. William Woods rode horseback to Leesburg to mail the letter to Washing-
ton, D.C. petitioning that a Post Office be established and this name given to
the town. Mail was carried from Okahumpka by horseback until the railroad was
completed in 1887 by the Orange Belt Railway Company. The first station agent
was R.H. Whitnall and Theodore Ruff was the first Post Master and also had the
first store in Mascotte.




The first residents of Montverde arrived in 1865 and called the place West Lake Apopka.
Tradition says it was later called "Monte Verde," Spanish for green mountain, by someone
from Vermont who came across Lake Apopka and was impressed by the rolling green hills.
John W. Harden, W.H. Porter, John Griggs, Lt. Jim Franklin, and Andrew Shaw were the first ,
to arrive. Harden, who came from Chester, S.C., was a veteran who received a federal land
grant of 200 acres by President Chester Arthur for his service in the Second Seminole War.
The town of Montverde was incorporated on May 18, 1925. From 1887 to 1969, the
town was served by the Tavares and Gulf railroad, used mainly to crops like grapes, citrus y .e
and vegetables. The local economy also featured a cement plant, a facility for drying andr
processing moss for furniture and the original manufacturing plant of the Snapper Mower,
which was developed in Montverde by Alex Smith and his brother Neal.




George Hull moved to the area in 1882 from Duluth, Minn. and bought 120
acres east of Clermont on what is now Jack's Lake. Hull had the idea of cre-
ating an entire town overlooking Cow House Lake. His wife, Alice, chose the
name Minneola for both the town and the lake.
The town grew slowly and wasn't incorporated until 1925. A.A. Pitt was the
first mayor.
The Clermont Clarion, several years later, noted that the town was debt free
and therefore one of the lowest-tax communities in Florida. "Construction
"- of county roads through Minneola brought about the paving of the principal
--. streets without cost to the residents," the Clarion stated in 1933.

Florida Lakes Symphony Orchestra was found-

In the early 1950s, the Clermont Chamber
of Commerce produced a 30-minute film titled
"Discover Clermont Gem of the Hills" to pro-
mote the area. More than 25 million people
viewed the film, and building permits tripled
during the next few years.

A barber shop has been maintained in the
same location on Montrose Street for 100

Groveland once was home to a per-
fume factory, J.W. Beach's Essen-
tial Oil Company, that included the
world's largest private garden. The
plant included five two-story build-
ings, ornamental fountain and a wa-
ter tower. The plant failed in 1926.
No signs of it remain.

South Lake had two ghost towns:
Villa City, which has rebuilt in recent
years, and Mohawk, which once in-
cluded an internationally recognized
hunting and fishing lodge.

A young black man named Albert S. Blue
walked from Mascotte to Tavares to petition
the school board to build a school for African-
American children. Blue pledged $50 toward
the effort. At its completion, the school served
children from the Mascotte and Groveland ar-
eas. A street in Groveland was named after
Blue, and a number of his descendants went
on to become school teachers.

In 1936, J. Ray Arnold spent a fortune drill-
ing for oil. According to Groveland historian
Doris Bloodsworth, he hired experts from the
Carnegie Institute, who determined the best
place to drill was 12 miles south of Groveland.
The area's residents pinned their hopes on the
expedition because the community had been
devastated by the Great Depression. Only a
few cupfuls of oil were ever found.

On Sept. 11, 1960, Hurricane Donna roared
ashore in Florida packing 160 mph winds. It
crawled up through Central Florida, damaging
Homes and businesses and blowing mobile
homes off their foundations in Clermont and
south lake County. Many citrus groves were
also damaged.

From the late 1920s on, Groveland featured
handsome brick street and street lamps. Local
real estate agent and journalist Charles Ander-
son started two Swedish newspapers to serve
the area's large Swedish immigrant population.


They were called Florida Posten and Svenska

Predictions for the Future
-,,1 ,


With 100 years of the South Lake
Press now in the books, we asked
community leaders to offer their
predictions for the next 100 years
in south Lake County.

As a new resident
to Lake County and
as the new pub- j''
lisher of the South
Lake Press, I am
very excited about
the future of our
community. South
Lake appears to
be a very progres-
sive and active community and if we
can do our job of delivering relevant
and timely community news I believe
there will always be a niche for our
newspaper.


We must continue to evolve and im-
prove with the times and make sure
we are delivering what our custom-
ers want. If we can do those things
our future will indeed be very bright,
especially since the paper is a reflec-
tion of the entire South Lake commu-
nity which has many great and excit-
ing things in store for it. Rod Dixon,
Publisher of South Lake Press and The
Daily Commercial newspapers

I think partly be-
cause of our prox-
imity to the airport .
and to the attrac- / :
tions and of course
the natural resourc-
es we've always \
had here, the future ,
looks really bright -9 l \1


economically and it continues to be a
great place to live.
Like the rest of Florida, there will be
challenges, such as how we'll handle
growth and have access to affordable
water. The good news is that our busi-
ness and community leaders are plan-
ning ahead. Based on the area's his-
tory, I have found that people in south
Lake have always been very resilient.
And no matter what has happened
or how tough times have gotten, the
strong sense of helping each other
has always remained and will contin-
ue to be. Doris Bloodsworth, South
Lake Chamber of Commerce director
of marketing and communications

I believe due to the spiral growth
emanating from west Orange Coun-
ty and Clermont, Groveland will be


the next city in South Lake to expe-
rience rapid development. We must
embrace this opportunity and prepare
using a "Sensible Growth Concept."
This method will allow our city to grow
while still maintaining that old South-
ern small town appeal. -Tim Loucks,
Mayor of Groveland

I think the future of south Lake
County is bright. In future years, I
see us outgrowing the rest of the
county and becoming the most pro-
gressive part of it with some of the
things we're working on, like the wa-
ter initiative and the bus service
that's inevitably coming. I think we
will be the jewel of Lake County. With
that being said, however, we need to
work together closely to ensure that

PREDICTIONS
FROM PAGE 42

the growth and whatever our future
holds resonates with the vision of
and is controlled by the south Lake
communities and that it doesn't
control us. Tony Rosado, Mayor
of Mascotte

The notion of where we might be
100 years from now would amount
to some sort of science fiction vi-
sion to me that I couldn't begin to
articulate. So in
the shorter term
and in regards to



geat pote n tial cont antee
South Lake, I see


ifwe have the vi-
sion and the will,
and with Cler-
mont leading the
way as the larg-
est city in the county and the re-
gional hub in south Lake.
I see the cities down here work-
ing much more often in cooperative
and coordinated efforts, along with
the county and even surrounding
counties in the region to enhance
our future quality of life and raise
our standard of living here. I see
a demographic shift that provides
a better balance of young people,
middle aged and seniors that are
more culturally diverse, better edu-
cated, healthier and have more op-
portunities to find higher paying pri-
mary jobs that take advantage of
our strengths here in health, well-
ness, and fitness as well as relat-
ed niches in sports tourism, eco
and adventure tourism, and heri-
tage tourism.
From a macro standpoint, a lot


of what happens here will be de-
pendent somewhat on things out
of our control and that are tak-
ing place in the greater region,
the state, the rest of the US and
around the world, but all in all,
smaller communities that are near-
by larger metro areas will be ex-
tremely attractive places to live,
work, and play. The knowledge that
it's only a short distance to all that
big cities can provide in ameni-
ties like entertainment, sports, the
arts, transportation networks, etc.,
will be icing on the cake. Here's to
our health and wealth. Ray San
Fratello, South Lake Chamber of
Commerce president

Some things are beyond our con-

believe the south
Lake community has the opportuni-
ty to thrive far into the future. Com-
munication and cooperation is vi-
tal to our success. -Ann Dupee,
Longtime Clermont resident and ad-
vocate, local historian

South Lake County has a bright
future just over the horizon. I en-
vision an economically sound and
vibrant group of distinct commu-
nities working together to provide
a high quality of life for commu-
nity stakeholders including great
schools, convenient access to ex-
cellent medical care, shopping,


and a variety of stimulating leisure
activities.
We also look forward to an en-
hanced transportation network
leading to several employment cen-
ters allowing residents an oppor-
tunity to live and work in their own
hometowns. Pat Kelly, Mayor of
Minneola

The future 10, 20 or even
100 years out is extreme-
ly bright for south Lake County. I
see our community becoming the
envy of Central Florida. We will be
known as a place where genera-
tion after generation grows up in
a healthy, prosperous community.
We'll be known for having the best
of both worlds economic prog-
ress and quality of life.
I boldly predict we will be a lead-
er among communities protect-
ing water resources. We will be
a championship community for
sports and fitness. Oh, and the Cit-
rus Tower will still be standing. -
Sean Parks, AICP, QEP, Lake County
commissioner

South Lake County has many
things going for it, including its nat-
ural beauty and longtime residents
who value the history, quality of
life and small town atmosphere of
the area, plus make every effort to
maintain it by staying involved with
issues and opportunities as they
arise. Add community leaders com-
mitted to planning for and with the
vision for long term economic and
developmental greatness, com-
munication and cooperation with
neighboring communities and you
get a future enhanced by the type
of growth that will appeal to future
generations.
Yes, people will leave to get ed-
ucations, but instead of seeking


jobs in their fields elsewhere, they
will be more likely to return home
to work at businesses and indus-
tries located in south Lake County
and that will support their desires
to live, work, be near family and
raise their own families in the very
community where they grew up;
just bigger and better.
With continued smart growth and
by keeping that generational chain
going, south Lake will evolve into a
richer community that people will
flood to for years to come without
ever losing sight of the very reason
people came here in the first
place nor the people and things
that had a hand in its prosperity.
- Roxanne Brown, South Lake
reporter for South Lake Press and
The Daily Commercial newspapers

The future of the city of Cler-
mont and South Lake community
couldn't look brighter. I believe that
Clermont is poised to have its best
days ever. We have experienced, vi-
sionary leaders and an engaged,
caring community that have all of
the elements to offer citizens and
businesses the quality of life envi-
sioned by the founders when they
promoted Clermont as a "model
town."
We are already planning for the
challenges that will come with the
anticipated growth expected with-
in the next 10-20 years, such as
access to affordable water, recre-
ation for youth, quality education
and high-paying jobs. I predict that
in 100 years, people will look back
and see 2013 and 2014 as an im-
portant milestone in the history of
Clermont. I also think the sense
of community pride and neighbors
helping neighbors will remain a
trademark of South Lake. Dar-
ren Gray, Clermont city manager

1I Amusing Story of an Ox
"Bi c ^i .- I ..;-JV t/ ', ^ ",. *,* -:,.. ,.,., : .i,'*.' J -,. ,i ,_,,' r..- /


Following is a story about "One-
Eye," a white ox with no tail and one
eye. The story of how "One-Eye" be-
came tailless was told by John Ab-
berger, owner of an oxen team in the
very early days of Minneola before
there were roads or horses or bug-
gies. It was told by columnist F.C.
Grable in the September 6, 1928
Clermont Press.
How the ox that was white, with
but one eye, came to be tailless was
this way. He had been in the habit of
walking out into Lake Minneola for
cooling off purposes. There, with only
his good eye and his nose above wa-
ter, he would pound the lake with his
tail, like a drummer making music.
There was music to "One-Eye" in the
swashing of his tail on the waves of
the lake.


But an alligator made a grab for
the drumming tail one day and bit it
off short. No ox ever moved faster.
Out of the water he went with a ter-
rified snort and from that day to this
never went into the lake again -
never.
Mr. Abberger had a quantity of pigs
for profit. Losing them one after an-
other, he proceeded one day to erect
a barricade around them. The next
morning, one was gone. The following
morning another had disappeared.
Then he got a rope, tied a hook to
one end, baited it with what would
appeal to a hungry alligator and tied
the other end of the rope to a tree.
In the morning the rope was drawn
taut, and he knew he had caught the
pig catcher. But he couldn't pull him
out. So he went for a neighbor and


even then between them they were
helpless.
By this time he remembered "One-
Eye" and brought him into action.
Transferring the end of the rope from
the tree and placing it around the


neck of the tailless ox, a pull and
tug landed the alligator. The burden-
bearer being curious to know what
he was pulling, turned his good eye
around to face the very monster that
had probably bit off his tail and might
now bite off a leg.
Away went "One-Eye" at the end
of the rope! Away followed the alliga-
tor at the other end. Crash against
the trees! Crash against the stumps!
Crash through the bushes, smooth-
ing out the rough places in the drag-
ging process!
It took three days to find "One-
Eye." Finally they found him where
the town of Howey-in-the-Hills now is.
It took lots of diplomacy and coaxing
to get near him and induce him to go
back home. He didn't trust men folks
that associated with alligators.

Gardener: Winter gardening activities, part one


JOE LAMP'L
Scripps Howard News Service
With temperatures
now consistently dip-
ping into the twenties,
my time spent out-
doors tending to my
winter garden is be-
coming less frequent.
That leaves more time
than ever to turn my
attention to indoor
garden-related ac-
tivities. A recent pa-
per-shredding project
was a good example. As
I patiently fed stacks of
paper into my shred-
der to prepare them
for the compost pile, I
pondered some of the
many projects that can
be done through the
colder moths to make
your garden more pro-
ductive next spring,
and to make you a little
smarter in the process.
Here are the first five
in a two-part series to
get you started.
Shred paper for


compost. One of the
best (and most over-
looked) opportunities
we have as gardeners
for an unlimited source
of composting ingre-
dients comes into our
house everyday. Paper:
printed emails, old
homework, junk mail,
bills and more. It's also
one of the fastest ways
to bulk up your pile
while providing a valu-
able carbon source.
No need to fear today's
inks. They're most-
ly vegetable based and
free from the heavy
metals of decades ago.
However, if you want
to play it safe, sepa-
rate out the glossy col-
ored circulars for the
recycle bin. One word
of advice: Invest in a
decent machine that
holds more volume
and can easily shred
a small stack all at the
same time. It's a huge
timesaver.
Make notes. In


a recent episode we
filmed with the very
talented gardener
and author Margaret
Roach, one of her most
popular tips was to
design your garden
from inside the house.
The views looking out
are your best cues on
how to lay out a gar-
den to be appreciat-
ed all year, especially
from the most com-
monly viewed plac-
es. Winter provides the
best time to design for
all seasons as you ob-
serve the most import-
ant components: the
bones and structure of
the garden. Note what
is lacking with partic-
ular focus on form,
height, texture, visu-
al balance, and appro-
priate proportions be-
tween evergreen and
deciduous trees and
shrubs.
Take pictures.
Documenting your


garden through the
seasons is a powerful
design tool and a great
way to archive the
transformation over
time. Taking pictures
in winter allows you to
always be mindful of
your garden's structure
throughout the year.
It's the foundation and
essential elements of
every good design.
Having an easy way to
refer back to those pic-
tures any time of year
will prove invaluable
when that stroke of ge-
nius hits.
Work on tools.
Gather up your favor-
ite hand pruners, shov-
els and more for that
all-important mainte-
nance. I admit: It's not
a project I look forward
to, but once I'm into it,
I never regret it. Steel
wool removes rust and
shines up metal; my
trusty file sharpens
the edges of my prun-


ers and spades. Fine
sandpaper and lin-
seed oil smoothes and
coats the hardwood of
my favorite long-han-
dled tools. Lastly, a
light spray of machine
oil over metal pro-
tects the exposed areas
from rust and keeps it
looking good. In short
order, I've restored my
favorite tools to good-
as-new for the busy
year ahead.
Read. I love those
cozy times by the fire
on days or nights when
there's no need to feel
guilty for not being
more productive. Pick
a subject you want
to understand better,
such as pruning, bota-
ny, saving seeds or or-
ganic gardening. There
is no shortage of ma-
terial on any subject.
Also consider books
written from the per-
spective of other gar-
deners their experi-
ences and wisdom on


gardening and life. I al-
ways learn new things
and thoroughly enjoy
walking in the shoes of
other passionate gar-
deners around the
world.
Some of my favorite
books in recent times
include: "Organic
Manifesto" by Maria
Rodale, "The Backyard
Parables: Lessons on
Gardening and Life" by

Make your own stocking stuffers


SANDI GENOVESE
Scripps Howard News Service
Every Christmas I
love hanging large,
decorated stockings on
the fireplace mantel,
but then I have to fill
them. And with multi-
ple stockings to stuff,
it can get pretty pric-
ey, so this year I decid-
ed to make my stock-
ing stuffers.
I discovered that in
addition to cutting my
holiday spending, it
gives me the freedom
to personalize each
present in a way that
just isn't possible with
store-bought gifts.
I set out to cre-
ate items that would
combine cost sav-
ings with customiza-
tion and would also be
small enough to fit in a
stocking.
Notepads are easy to
make if you have ac-
cess to a die cutter. If
you don't have one,
it's likely the school in
your area does; gener-
ally they will allow you
to use it if you bring
your own paper and
cut when the teach-
ers don't need the ma-
chine. Select a shape


that suits the gift recip-
ient. It takes about ten
minutes and four to
five sheets of construc-
tion paper to make
a note-worthy stack.
Decorate the top shape
with everything from
photos to stickers to
holes cut with different
size hole punches.
To convert a stack
of shapes into a note-
pad, you need to stack
the shapes and secure
them with a binder
clip. Paint a few dabs
of padding compound
on one edge to com-
plete the pad.
Padding compound
is available online and
in office supply stores
and dries clear like
white glue; however,
it is flexible so the pad
stays together as you
remove one sheet at a
time.
It's easy to personal-
ize pencils and eras-
ers to partner with the
notepads by simply
wrapping each pen-
cil with washi tape and
rubbing decals onto
each eraser with a
wooden popsicle stick.
Washi tape and rub-
ons are available at
craft stores.


If you're willing to
participate in a lit-
tle do-it-yourself ac-
tion, it won't be dif-
ficult to make small,
inexpensive gifts to
stuff Christmas stock-
ings. Even though
these pint-size pres-
ents will sit in a stock-
ing, it's nice to know
they won't cost an arm
and a leg.

Home building future in local development


reen Key Village
is a new develop-
ment off Lake Ella
Road in Fruitland Park
and has garnered na-
tional recognition for
their net zero energy
homes.
Green KeyVillage
offers a new style of
green living that focus-
es not only on the con-
struction of the home,
but how the communi-
ty will function.
The goal of net zero
homes is to use no
more energy than it
produces. Long-time
Lake County builder
Greg Thomas is the de-
veloper of Green Key
Village, which is prob-
ably one of the most
innovative new com-
munities in the state of
Florida, if not the na-
tion.
The homes are de-
signed in a KeyWest
style with brighter col-


ors, Bahama shutters
and taller windows,
but the neat aspects
are the large front
porches with adjacent
sidewalks. The com-
munity is designed to
create an old-fashion
neighborhood where
kids can play while
parents or grandpar-
ents sit on the front
porch.
Green KeyVillage
homes use an Eko-
trope Whole House
System approach in
building, which uses
science and technol-
ogy to engineer ev-
ery component in the
home to work in uni-
son to create a net zero
home.
Solar panels are stra-
tegically placed on the
roof, giving maximum
energy production
while protecting the
aesthetics of the home.
As energy is produced
by the solar panels, the


power is fed to a Duke
Energy meter that
moves power in both
directions. During the
day, as energy is creat-
ed, it is passed to the
Duke Energy grid and
the homeowner re-
ceives credit for the
power, which can be
used as it is needed.
Technology is pro-
vided to the home-
owner that monitors in
detail the energy pro-
duction and usage by
the home. This allows
the homeowner to op-
timize the home's effi-
ciency.
Each component of
the home, from the
open-cell foam insu-
lation (which provides
high thermal insula-
tion values), to the GE
GeoSpring Hybrid Wa-
ter Heater (that is re-
garded as one of the
most efficient systems
in America), is used for
one purpose to save

energy while providing
maximum comfort.
Typically, most en-
ergy efficient homes
must sacrifice natural
light with smaller win-
dows; however, Ener-
gy Star approved, Ad-
vanced Low-E vinyl
windows byYKK allow


for the use of much
larger windows. Cou-
pled with Energy Star
rated Therma-Tru in-
sulated doors, and
Nichiha lap cement
siding, the home pro-
vides a tight envelope
against Florida's harsh
climate.
"In the next few
years, water conser-
vation is going to be a
much larger issue in
Florida, and because
of this we included the
latest technology in
water conservation,"
said developer Greg
Thomas.
The homes are
equipped with a Man-
ifold Water Distribu-
tion System, which
stabilizes pressures
and temperatures, but
most important is the
Kohler water-sense fix-
tures that are designed
to save as much as a
half gallon of water per


use.
The dual flush toilets
can potentially cut wa-
ter usage by half, by of-
fering a separate flush
for liquids only.
As this gated com-
munity is developed
amenities such as a
children's playground,
pool, dog park, and
community garden
will be added to en-
hance a new style of
old fashioned living.
Green KeyVillage's
innovation in green
building, energy con-
servation, and com-
munity is ushering in a
new standard in subdi-
vision development.
Younger home buy-
ers have different
wants and needs than
their parents, and the
model of this new de-
velopment will prob-
ably be duplicated
throughout the coun-
try.

traction of oil and gas
to multinational giants
such as Exxon or Chev-
ron, something that is
currently prohibited
under Mexico's consti-
tution.
It also says that con-
tracts could be made di-
rectly with the state and
don't have to be issued
by the state-run oil com-
pany, Petroleos Mexi-
canos, or Pemex, which
currently has a monop-
oly on Mexican oil.
The articles explain-
ing the proposal say
it would allow private
contractors to book re-
serves, or list expect-
ed benefits in their fi-
nancial statements, as
long as they specify in
their contracts that all
oil and gas they find in
the ground belongs to
Mexico. An earlier draft
proposed that it be part
of the constitutional re-
form, but it was elimi-
nated in the final draft.
Opponents said it
proposes a system that
has been proven a "to-
tal failure," while ana-
lysts consider it a pos-
itive move in opening
the door to the pri-
vate investment Mexico
needs to save its oil sec-
tor. Mexican oil produc-
tion has been declining
despite increased in-
vestment, and Pemex
has not had the where-
withal to date to exploit
deep-water or shale oil
and gas reserves.
"It's a very good set-
ting of the table," said


"They're trying to give the industry to foreigners.
The participation of private oil companies has
been, if you look at it calmly, a total failure."
Dolores Padierna
Democratic Revolution Party senator


George Baker, publish-
er of the Houston-based
newsletter, Mexico En-
ergy Intelligence. "I
think they've done a
good job saying ... the
lease-holder has com-
mercial rights to pro-
duction. What we don't
know is if they will have
rights to all of the pro-
duction or part of the
production."
The opposition Dem-
ocratic Revolution Party,
or PRD, said the docu-
ment would "cancel and
annul the nationaliza-
tion of oil the electrici-
ty" and renewed its call
for a public referendum
on the issue.
"They're trying to give
the industry to foreign-
ers," said PRD Sen. Do-
lores Padierna. "The
participation of private
oil companies has been,
if you look at it calmly, a
total failure."
The proposal goes
much further than the
plan introduced by Pres-
ident Enrique Pena Nie-
to in August, which only
allowed profit-sharing
agreements but not ar-
rangements for sharing
oil.
The measures in the
Senate proposal have
been prohibited in the
decades since 1938,
when then-President


Lazaro Cardenas na-
tionalized the oil indus-
try, a symbol that for
decades that has been
fiercely protected by the
constitution from possi-
ble profiteering by for-
eign companies.
It would change three
articles of constitu-
tion, while Pena Nie-
to had only proposed to
change two.
The proposal still
specifies that oil in the
ground is the proper-
ty of the Mexican state.
The constitution would
continue to prohib-
it oil concessions, con-
sidered the most liberal
kind of access by private
oil companies.
The proposal was
hashed out by Pena Ni-
eto's ruling Institution-
al Revolutionary Party,
or PRI, with the conser-
vative opposition, the
National Action Party,
which wants an oil re-
form as open as possi-
ble to investment and
partnership possibili-
ties.
Meanwhile, the PRD
has left the three-par-
ty political coalition,
Pact for Mexico, to pro-
test any constitutional
changes to open the oil
sector.
The PRI has been
more moderate than

Alabama Gov. Robert Bentley
praised the agreement.
"This is the type of job that's need-
ed here in this area," he said. "These
will be good high-paying jobs. They're
manufacturing jobs. We need manu-
facturing jobs."
Shorter Mayor Willie Mae Powell
said she is hoping for more job an-
nouncements in the future. She said
the city has additional land available
for potential employers. Alabama's
auto industry has lured other com-
panies to the state.
"We're here and ready to be a part-
nership with any other company that
wants to come here," she said.
Sean Freeman, a college student,
said more employers mean he has a
better chance of finding a job near
relatives when he graduates.

WINTER SPECIAL


WAYNE PARRY
Associated Press
ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. The Atlan-
tic Club Casino Hotel, which hopes
to sell itself at a bankruptcy court
auction this month, has laid out its
assets and liabilities for the court.
The casino formerly known as the
Atlantic City Hilton listed assets, ex-
cluding real property, of $17.1 mil-
lion and liabilities of $16.8 million.
The casino would not estimate the
worth of its real property when asked
by The Associated Press. It listed the
value in the filing as "unknown."
A deal to sell the Atlantic Club to
the parent company of the Poker-
Stars website fell through this year,
and the casino was unable to find a
new buyer. The Rational Group was
to pay $15 million for the casino,
meaning the price to be paid at the
bankruptcy court auction is likely to
be below that, and would be by far
the lowest price ever paid for an At-


lantic City casino.
The filing of assets and liabilities
was made Wednesday with the fed-
eral bankruptcy court in Camden.
The Atlantic Club has remained
open since filing for Chapter 11 pro-
tection last month. The casino could
be put up for auction Dec. 17, with
the sale completed by March.
The city's southernmost casi-
no, the Atlantic Club has struggled
to compete with newer, larger casi-
nos. Nearly two years ago, it adopt-
ed a "value pricing" strategy, target-
ing low-rollers and residents either
put off by or unable to afford pricier
casinos. The casino's CEO, Michael
Frawley, said that strategy is working
but not fast enough to help stave off
Chapter 11 filing.
A statement of assets and liabil-
ities usually accompanies the ini-
tial bankruptcy filing, but the casino
got permission from the bankrupt-
cy court to delay revealing them un-
til this week.
