here won't be any expen-
Winter Park or Maitland
this Fourth of July. In fact, the
cities quit having them years
ago.
"We used to," Maitland Mayr-
or Doug Kinson said, "but now
we are really living in a world
where it's not fiscally appropri-
ate." He said Maitland just isn't
big enough to justify spending
$1,000 a minute on a fireworks
show.
Winter Park won't host a
light show either, but it will
hold a bicycle parade at 9 a.m.
Friday, July 4, on Park Avenue.
There will also be live enter-
tainment by the Bach Festival
Brass Band and free hot dogs,

Minivans have long been seen as
the car for soccer-mom types, and
,Fritz said the stereotype is still there,
but people are "getting over the im-
age" for the better fuel economy;
But Axe said there's a better mon-
ey-saver out there the crossover.
"People who want SUVs don't want
to get in a minivan," he said.
Axe said when it comes to buying
a new vehicle, people look for good
fuel economy, space and style. "It's
kind ofa blend between everything,"
he said of a crossover,
While the Sienna minivan gets 17
miles per gallon in the city, Toyota's
Highlander crossover gets 18.
"Gas isn't too much of a differ-
ence," he said. "You're spending may-
be $20 more a month."!


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF .

Minivans might get better gas mile-
age than SUVs, but a minivan revival
doesn't look likely.
Consumers are rejecting gas-guz-
zling SUVs and pickups for smaller,
more fuel-efficient crossovers and
cars, Power Information Network,
J.D. Power and Associates' statistical
arm, reported in June,
Cars accounted for 60 percent of
all new-vehicle sales in May. SUV sales
were down 40 percent in May com-
pared with May 2007, while pickups
fell more than 30 percent and mini-
vans slid 15 percent. .
Honda Odyssey and Chrysler
Town and Country minivans fell 15
percent, while Dodge Caravan plum-
meted 25 percent.
However, one minivan model seri-


ously bucked the trend. The Mazda5
saw a 43 percent gain in sales. It is
much smaller than a minivan and
is more comparable to a four-door
hatchback.
Toyota's Sienna slid just 5 percent
nationally, while its sales at Courtesy
Toyota in Winter Park have remained
steady, Business Development Sales
Manager Nick Axe said. "Sales have
slowed down but it hasn't been huge,"
he said.
Some area dealers even claim an
increase in minivan sales.
Erik Fritz, a sales consultant at
Greenway Dodge Chrysler Jeep, said
sales wefit up at the Orlando dealer-
ship about 5 percent despite the na-
tional decline in Chrysler and Dodge
minivan models.
."We're finding a lot of people are
going to a minivan instead of get r i ng
SUVs," Fritz said.

Two people were taken by surprise at
the Maitland Rotary Club Installation
Banquet on Monday, June 30. Two
longtime members were inducted as
the club's newest Paul Harris Fellows.
It has been a practice of the Mait-
lIdnd Rotary Club to award Paul Har-
ris Fellow~ship to select members in
appreciation of their service to the~
club. This year, two longtime mem-
hers were inducted: Tony Leffin, a for-
mer club president and past district
governor, and Dean Sprague, who
currently serves as the city manger of
Maitland. Both were visibly surprised
and honored to have been given this
sign of recognition by their club.
Sprague and Leffin both received a
pin, medallion and certificate iden-
tifying them as a Paul Harris Fellow.
This recognition serves to announce
them as advocates of the Founda-
tion's goals of world peace and inter-
national understanding.
Paul Harris Fellow recognition
was created in memory of Paul Har-
ris, the founder of Rotary, as a way to
show appreciation for contributions
to the Foundation's charitable and
educational program. A club donates
$1,000 to the Rotary Foundation for
each Paul Harris Fellow awarded.
That money is used for the founda-
tion's humanitarian and educational
programs. It is because of these dona-
tions that The Rotary Foundation is
able to carry out an array of programs
that achieve beneficial changes in
the world, including improved living
conditions, increased food produc-
tion, wider availability of treatment
and rehabilitation for the sick and
disabled, new ways to improve the

Leffin is a multiple Paul Harris Fel-
low. "Of the three Paul Harris Fellows
this club has bestowed upon me, this
is the highest honor of all,". Leffin
said.
"I was overwhelmed when I heard
my name called. It was not expected
at all," Sprague said. "I was really quite
humbled."
Sprague has been a member of the
Rotary Club of Maitland for 13 years.
He has served three terms on the
board of directors, currently serves
on the membership committee, and
has been a tireless volunteer for the
Maitland Rotary Arts Festival. "It's
an honor serving this club," Sprague

Cities were cut off from Or-
ange County's traffic ticket
fund last week, leaving city
officials flabbergasted.
Violators in Orange
County are charged an ex-
tra $12.50 each time they
receive a traffic ticket, and
for the past five years, that
money went into a county
fund that reimbursed city
police departments for ra-
dio system upgrades.
The Orange County
Commission unanimously
terminated that agreement
last week so the county can
use all future revenue from
the surcharge to overhaul
its own radio system.
Mike McCoy, county di-
rector of Public Safety, said
the- agreement has run
its term, having collected

a ota d C irn H io n f o~ h

Maitland P5olie were
able to upgrade 24 porta-
ble radios, a cost of almost
$80,000, with money from
the fund.
"LIt worked under the
current system but it won't
work going forward," Mc
Coy said. The county's new
radio system will cost be-
tween $30 million and $B50
million, and money from
the surcharge is needed to
help pay for it,
Gary Bruhn, head of the
Orange County Council of
Mayors and mayor of Win-
dermere, said when the
county upgrades its radio
system, the cities will have.
to follow suit only he
doesn't knowv where they'll
get the money.
"Our fear is we know the
upgrades are coming and
we're not going to have this
revenue source," Bruhn
said
The Council of Mayors
will meet Monday, July 7, to
discuss what to do. He said
one of their options is to
ask the Board to re-exam-
ine the agreement,
Bruhn was accompa-
nied at the county meet-
ing by seven police chiefs
and TWinter Park Mayor Da-
vid Strong, none of whom
were allowed to address the
County Commission.

the opposing side he said.

unsafe buildings and is a model to a
new beginning in downtown Mait-
land."
Kinson said he is pleased with
the development's progress, par-
ticularly the addition of the cupola.
"Cupolas can be found on some o'f
the most historic buildings in the
country. They are symbolic of stat-
ure, nobility and place," he said.
From the base of the cupola to
the top of the dome, the structure
stands approximately 28 feet high
and includes a 2-foot-7-inch deco-
rative finial. The cupola is fabri-
cated with an inner structural steel
tube framework and a secondary
structural aluminum angle frame-
wiork. The cupola dome is clad with
20 ounces of pre-aged copper. The
cupola was designed in Cartpbells-
ville, Ky., by Campbellsville Indus-
tries.
The Village at Lake Lily, posi-
tioned on the south end of Lake Lily
Park, is planned to be a 450-unit,
mixed-use urban development. The
project will feature approximately
450 apartment units and 40,000
square feet of retail, office and res-
taurant space. Construction com-
pletion on the project's first ph:1se
is expected in 2009.

Drivers on Highway 17-92 now
know when they are approaching
Maitland. On Thursday, June 26, the
long-awaited cupola an arched
structure resting on a base at the
top of a building was set at the
top of The Village at Lake Lily devel-
opment.
Since construction started on the
Village at Lake Lily last December,
the development has seen definite
structural progress as the mixed-use
residential and retail. center comes
into fruition. The development's
cupola has long been touted as the
gateway to Maitland's new downi-
town. .
Multifamily developer The Mor-
gan Group, developer of The Village
at Lake Lily, called it a "construction
milestone." The total height of the
clock tower, including the cupola, is
85 feet,.
"The cupola will likely be the
most visible feature of The Village
at Lake Lily, especially as drivers
and pedestrians travel north along
17-92 or along Lake Avenue," said
Jon Wo~od, MGI Division partner.
"The structure will serve as the visu-
al representation of the gateway to
Maitland's new downtown region."
"In our city, the Village at Lake
Lily cupola symbolizes the entrance
to a newly rejuvenated dowlittown,"
said Maitland Mayor Doug Kinson.
"It represents the end of blighted,

After a string- of rallies by
the Dawgs, the game would
end in one of the rarest situ-
ations in baseball. Pinch hit-
ter Eric Kallstrom smashed
a ball to left field while Nick
Adams watched from third
base. The ball was caught
and the owner of the gamt-
winning hit was already
out when Adams took off
from third base, beating the
throw and ending the game
on a 10-run mercy rule.
The win put the Dawgs
back in the W~ column after
sliding down to just above
Sanford in the FCSL base-
ment.
That has become a fight
of its own, with the River
Rats clawing their way out
of their own hole in the past
week, beating Orlando for
the second time this season,
and then surprising Cler-
mont 5-1 Sunday.
The Rats, who had aver-
aged less than one win per
week, found -themselves
one of the resurgent bot-
tom three in the league. Or-
lando, Winter Park and San-
ford have all won their most
recent game as of Tuesday,
while Clermont, Leesburg
and Belleview the league's
top three all lost their
most recent games.
The Dawgs got their first
chance in a week to finally
beat the only team they
hadn't this season, Bel-
leview. They took to Lees-
burg's home field at press
time. Check next week's

ton's rally-starting triple
that scored Tyler Benzel.
Then Antonio Clark sent
Gratton home with an RBI
single.
The inning would end
with four run's on the board.
Then in the fifth inning
the Dawgs' bats heated up
again, scoring one more to
pull farther away from the
Bulldogs.
In the sixth inning the
runs kept coming, as the
Dawgs nearly batted around
the order against a rattled
Bulldog infield. The rally
started with a strange com-
bination of a throwing error
and a balk, followed by two
singles to score the first run.
Tw~o more singles later, the
Dawgs were up two more
runs. A sacrifice fly would
give the Dawgs their ninth
run of the game before Bel-
leview finally shut them
down.
The Bulldogs' pitching
looked even more rattled by
the fifth, giving the Dawgs
a bases-loaded start to the
seventh inning, thanks to a
beaning and two walks, fol-


T'he Dawgs are in the re-
cord books after turning a
Harper-Shepard field into
a slaughterhouse Monday
night. They beat the Bel-
leview Bulldogs 12-2, snap-

streak of the season in dra-
matic fashion.
That came after a di-
sastrous last week in the
Florida Collegiate Summer
League in which the Dawgs
only managed 10 runs in
the last five games. They lost
four of five of those games,
two of them to Belleview.
The beatings just didn't
stop for the Dawgs over
the weekend, who dropped
their fourth straight to Or-
lando on Sunday afternoon.
But that all disappeared
under the lights of the
Dawgs' home stadium Mon-
day night, when they braved
thunderstorms to turn on
waterworks of their own.

said.

Up 28 points to 21 in the chase for the Premier Development League
Southeast crown, the Central Florida Kraze soccer team is hoping to
hold off the Bradenton Academics this Wednesday after press time.
With a win adding three points in the league system, the Kraze
could nearly lock up the championship. It will be their last home game

project to move. forward,
Kinson said.
When K~inson was elect-
ed mayor, he said he sat
down with Walsh arid urged
him to drop the lawsuit, and
Walsh did in 2006.
"He had a passion and
concern for doing the right
thing for the community yet
he was a businessman who
was not afraid to do what it
took," Kinson said.
Verl Emrick, executive di-
rector of the Maitland Com-


Florida projects have gotten
off the ground though -
something Wilrnter Park resi-
dents can attest to. In 2007,
Wlalsh and his partners in
The Carlisle project sued
Winter Park for not approv-
ing the mixed-use redevel-
opment of the current U.S.
Post Office site adjacent to
Central Park.
-The developers spent $6
million on the failed proj-
ect. Four months after the
suit was filed, the City Com-
mission approved a settle-

accepted. "This settlement'
puts a very contentious is-
sue behind -both the city

city press release.
A year later, just two
weeks before his death,
Broad Street Partners an-

Walsh's company is
also tied to the future of
another city's downtown

velopment, Oviedo on the
Park, is slated to feature
more than 100,000 square
feet of i'etail and restaurant
space, as well as rental and
condo units for about 2,500
people. The site is mostly
dirt right now, as is the site


for Maitland's Ravinia.
Now, more than ever,

of his family, friends and business affiliates. His

at once.
As Steve's life and career progressed, he cel-
ebrated his successes and endured the pains of
failed ventures with the belief and assurance that
the glass was always half-full ... and that he had
done his best. He always provided for his fam-
ily, as best as possible, regardless of the situa-
tion. He loved being a father and adored being
the grandfather of two young souls who returned


his adoration.
When the situation allowed. Steve shared gen-
erously wirth others and went out of his way to
help better his community -providing significant
resources and gifts to churches, hospitals and the
arts. He wanted to make a difference in peoples'
lives, especially those with modest means. Steve
believed we all can flourish and thrive if given a
chance. He believed faith, education and health
were important ingredients to success.

When I was in fifth grade,
the futuristic, science fiction
movie that was a must-see
was "2001: A Space Odys-
sey." Recently, a newspaper
article in the Orlando Senti-
nel featured what life might
be like in another futuristic
year: 2100.
"Our coastal cities would
be destroyed.. Our rivers
would overflow. Our water
would be undrinkable. Our
wildlife would suffer," the
article, "Florida circa 2100:
Global~ warming's toll,"
states.
In the 1968 "Odyssey"
movie, technology was to
come to their rescue and
provide the solutions to any
problem. But in the end, it
nearly destroyed them.
Today, some fear that the
world is coming to an end
because of technology, that
Our great state is being de-
stroyed, and global warm-
ing and greenhouse-gas
emissions will soon become
so overwhelming that we
will have no options to cope
with the detiastation and
destruction.
The state would lose
"$345 billion in tourism and


real estate...Water supplies,
sewers and roads could
be damaged or ruined ... 2
nuclear power plants, 68
hospitals, 74 airports, 334
schools and nearly 20,000
historic structures could be
destroyed," the article con-
tinues.
Destruction and devas-
tation sell newspapers. And
many are interested in read-
ing about the worst and fall
victim to the trap of believ-
ing it.
The reality of the world
we live in today is that tech-
nology will provide part of
the-solution, but diligence
will be the great implement-
er of it. Diligently believing
that our actions will posi-
tively impact the world in
which we live is paramount
to falling victim to fallacies
and fairy tales.

dations that follow won't

Winter Springs Veterillar-
ian Paul Williams of Semi-
nole Trail Animal Hospital
said he receives more calls
about pet anxieties during
the months of April, May
and June than the rest of
the year combined. Seeking
help for the animal is vital
for a myriad of reasons.
"When dogs suffer from
severe phobias or anxieties,
they are potentially a dan-
ger to themselves and oth-
ers around them," Williams
said.
Helping an animal over-
come a fear can be a chal-


lenge, especially since it's
natural for animals to react
to a threatening situation -
the instinct actually helps
keep them out of harm's
way in the wild.

CAROLE ARTHURS
OBSERVER STAFF

In tough economic times,
people are unable to care
for their pets, and often
these pets are abandoned or
put in a shelter,
Just as often, these ani-
mals are put to sleep because
o~fovercrowding and lack of
funds to care for them.
Such was the case in
Georgia when a kill shel-
ter was going to dispose of
about 19 dogs and puppies,
and a very emotional wom-
an called up Pet Rescue by
Judy. Judy Sarullo did what
she does best she went to
the rescue, and as a result,
16 unwanted cats and dogs
were saved from euthana-
sla.
Now she needed to find
homes for the animals. In
an effort to help remedy
this problem, local apart-
ment community Dwell
Apartments partnered with
Pet Rescue by Judy to find
homes for the needy ani-
mals, not only the ones froin
Georgia, but those from the


Central Florida area, as well.
A pet adoption event
took place at Dwell Apart-
ments on Saturday, June 28.
There was Nayla, the black
and brown miniature pin-
scher, and O'Jay, the ador-
able senior cat who quali-
fied for the Senior for Senior
program. .
Faddle, a lab, was one
of the puppies rescued in
Georgia. He captured the
heart of Dwell resident Bob
Simin, and he wras consider-
ing adopting him. Faddle's
sister, Fiddle, did not sur-
vive. Residents, Di and Bar-
rie Osborne were also look-
ing for that special friend to
take home with them. .
There were many other
adorable cats and dogs of all
breeds and ages that were
available for immediate
adoption. Each pet had up-
to-date vaccines and had
been spayed and neutered.
"This has been a particu-
larly busy kitten and puppy
season," said Jan Gudis, di-
rector of fundraising for Pet
Rescue by Judy. "We are al-
ready being inundated with


litters, more than we can
handle, in addition to the
regular number of dogs and
cats we are asked to rescue.
WCe are currently at com-
plete capacity, housing 98
cats and 72 dogs."
Interviews with prospec-
tive owners were conduct-
ed on-site with adoption
fees beginning at $~150 a
charge that covers the vet
bill and prior care for the ad-
opted animal. The pets cap-
tured the hearts of residents
at Dwell, which waived the
pet fee for those residents
adopting a pet on that day.
"At Dwell we actively
engage our residents in
programs we believe in be-
cause we are dedicated to
building and bettering the
community we serve," said
Andee Myatt, project man-
ager for The Klein Compa-
ny, the developer of Dwell
Apartments. "We hope to
give some relief to the area's
shelters and provide homes
for these animals and
above all become a positive
community partner. This

animal behaviorist may be
able to offer additional ad-
vice and work specifically
with the dog.
As afternoon storms be-
come more frequent, dog
trainer Mike Shamp of Bark
Busters in Winter Park said
he also receives more re-
quests for guidance. He has
worked with dogs with such
high anxiety levels they
have broken out of a crate
and even jumped out of a
window.
"Some dogs, just like
some people, are more anx-
ious about storms than oth-
er dogs. You need to find a
nice, quiet, dark place, per-
haps a crate with a blanket
over it," Shamp sitid. Treat-
ment depends on the dog's
personality.
Since dogs take their cues


from their master, Shainp
also advises people to avoid
reacting to the dog during a
storm. "A lot of people want
to make them feel better
by talking sweetly, but talk-
ing that way makes it sound
like praise for their (nega-
tive) behavior. If the dog is
worried, then he thinks it's
praise because they rely on
the voice," Shamp said.
The main reason to
seek treatment, Shamp ad-
vised, is because anxiety
is not good for the dog's
health. "The dog could in-
jure himself, and when they
chew on things they might
break teeth, puncture their
mouths or swallow objects,"
he said. "There are things
that can be done there is
no reason for the dog to be
uncomfortable.

Puppies and kittens are
in special need of fostering
in a home chvironment.
"This is where they learn
to trust people and to be
family-friendly," the Web
site states. "We always place
them in sets of at least two,
as they teach each other
how to play appropriately,
plus keep each other busy.
If you foster for us, we will
provide the food and vet
care."

cently lost its facility so all

Dishing trash with 0 bama


"Even if you never met him, you know this guy ... He's the
guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a
martini and a cigarette, that stands against the wall and
makes snide comments about everyone who passes by.

folks. And laughed, too!
"The only time people
dislike gossip is when you
gossip about them." Will
Rogers.
The joke here is that Ba-
rack Obama couldn't get
into most country clubs in
America until recent years.
Heck, he couldn't have got-
ten into the downtown
Orlando University Club.
Jews either. And women, of
course not. Karl is so funny
when he characterizes
Obama as the quintessen-
tial country-club type when
something as inconsequen-
tial as his skin color would
have prohibited his admis-
sion.
I an unsure of the beau-
tiful date attribution. Was
that a backhanded sugges-
tion that he might be there
without his wife and all
that that implies? That Karl.
Holding a cigarette and
drinking a martini. Hmmm,
that sounds just fine to me.
Except the cigarette part.
Ick! Yea, smoking cigarettes
is such an elitist activity. Uh,
Karl, cigarette smoking is
definitely a "lower" class ac-
tivity these days. You might
want to brush up on your
demographics. (I know.
He's trying to quit.)
The part I want to direct-
ly comment on is the mak-
ing of snide comments. I do
not know one individual
who will not participate in
discussing and dissecting
the behavior, values, opin-


ions, beliefs or actions of
other human beings. Would
we even be human if we
didn't? Yet, I am sure when
Vice President Cheney is
off on hunting trips and
when he isn't shooting his
buddies in the head, he's
definitely not trash-talking
anyone either. Ever! No way
would theNP ever deni-
grate or trash-talk another
human being. He's much
too honorable, too good to
gossip. Cheney is no mar-
tini-drinking elitist! He's
a solid Republican! He's a
patriot! He would never
allow a smear to circulate.
(Hmmm? Why does Valerie
Plame keep entering my
mind?)
"Gossip is the art of say-
ing nothing in a way that
leaves practically nothing
unsaid." Walter Winchell
Let me go on record:
I'd willingly stand on the
back wall and dish trash
with Obama any day of the
week. The country club is
optional, the martinis are a
plus.
"WJ~hat some invent, the
rest enlarge." Jonathan
Swift
What sort of human,
what sort of gossip are you?
An inventor or an enlarger?

backroom intrigue, is an
inveterate game-player and
likes to win at any cost. He's
a sycophant who gets his
jollies by associating with
the rich and powerful, none
of whom would ever will-
ingly let him marry their
daughter. But he's smart,
ambitious and a climber.
An American in the Sinclair
Lewis literary tradition.
What is going on when
the No. 1 Republican politi-
cal strategist describes the
2008 Democrat presiden-
tial nominee in such terms
as the above quote? Let's
examine that.
"Even if you never met
him, you know this guy ...
He's the guy at the coun-
try club with the beautiful
date, holding a martini
and a cigarette, that stands
against the wall and makes
snide comments about ev-
eryone who passes by."
First of all, Karl says
Obama's the guy at the
country club. Well, that
narrows it down a bit. Hey!
My dad once belonged to
the Sioux City Boat Club.
He's with a beautiful date.
That would be my mother
who actually was voted the
prettiest girl on campus on
two Midwest universities
in the 1930s. Dad did drink
but he was a whiskey guy.
So did mom, and they both
-smoked at that time. And
I'll bet the ranch that mom
and dad did, indeed, whis-
per snide comments about


I know it's easy and some-
what the thing to say .
these days but isn't Karl
Rove about the smarmi-
est ~piece of lowlife going?
I thought when he left the
Bush White House that
he'd quietly return to living
under his overturned rock
(think cockroach). But
Nooooooooo! He's actually
been hired by Fox News -
why does that not surprise
me? to offer political
commentary.
A funny thing about
Rove (to me) is the man's
hypocrisy. It is my under-
standing of the man that he
is not particularly religious.
He has the moral flexibility
that would make any rela-


tivist proud, and he really
doesn't believe much of
what his puppets espouse
(think Bush). I am unsure
why he aligned himself .
with evangelical, conserva-
tive Republicans, but that is
something I've observed for
several decades in a certain
type of waspish, wimpish,
nebbish, pasty-white frat
boy. (Is this snide enough
yet, Karl?)
Karl Rove strikes me
as a type of pimple-faced,
clinic-burning anti-abor-
tionist except he lacks the
convictions) of a pro-lifer
and isn't quite the coward
of the anonymous bomb
thrower (ah, damned by
faint praise). He likes the


Our productive wealth to stop the
selling of factories, farms, forests
and any other wealth that is used
to produce goods and services.
.2. A 90 percent graduated tax
bracket on net incomes of a hun-
dred million dollars or more. This
would still leave about 35 million
dollars to spend and invest in the
production of goods and services.
3. Get rid of all tax cuts and tax-
exempt gimmicks used to get out
of paying taxes.
The moral is this: Sell the milk,


butter and cheese. Never sell the
cow.
If you don't understand the
reasoning of this little essay, you
need to purchase a good college
economics textbook and read the
chapter on how money is created.

or inflated.
Tinkering with any of these
measuring devices will not control
any of the things that they mea-
sure. Messing with prices between
the different things we buy is total-
ly a waste of time until the quantity
of money is brought under control.
When the Spanish took the
gold to Spain after the discovery
of America, prices went up all over
Europe. When gold was discovered
in Alaska, prices went up. When it
was discovered in California, prices
went up. Prices always go up with
an increase in the money supply
unless there is an increase in pro-
duction of goods and services to
absorb the extra money. There are
no exceptions to these facts con-
cerning money and price.
Money in the United States is
apparently out of control. Unless
our Congress takes the necessary
steps to bring it under control,
we are on our way to the hyper
price increases that happened to
Germany in the 1920s-30s when
a million marks would only buy a
loaf of bread.
Worrying, fussing, cursing and
screaming about the price of
gasoline is an exercise in futility.
All prices will continue to go up,
some more than others, until our
government gets money under
control through some or all of the
following:
1. An export tax on the sale of


Governments cannot create
wealth.
But neither can people create
very much wealth without intel-
ligent people in charge of govern-
ment that know the difference be-
tween money and wealth.
A person on the government
payroll may or may not create
wealth. A teacher does not create
wealth but he/she plays a critical
role in the education of its citizens
.so that with jobs, they can create
wealth,
A policeman on the government
payroll does not create wealth but
one of his jobs is to protect wealth.
Many people confuse money
with wealth. Money is a public util-
ity that distributes wealth. Money
by itself is not wealth. Picture your-
self on a desert island with a billion
dollars and no way to get off the
island to buy food. How wealthy
would you be?
The wires in the power line are
not electricity but only the utility
that makes it possible to use the
electricity.
The money in your pocket or
bank account is not wealth but
only the public utility that makes it
possible for you to use the wealth
produced by someone else.
The thermometer is not heat.
The barometer is not air pressure.
Rising prices are not inflation. Ris-
ing prices indicate how much the
money supply has been increased

making himself look good
to voters, voters who must
settle for prattle without
depth or clear determina-
tion. He has had an easy
life without much real
work. His fine educational
privileges were provided
gratis to him by this coun-
try and its generous insti-
tutions. His brightness
seems to lack a matching
moral sheen, and it is hard,
indeed, to find rejd truth in
the man. His short record
in the Senate is lamentable.
His promises are mere teas-
ers. He keeps hopes alive
that he will someday deliv-
er. Up to now, he seems all
tinsel.

even pains that's what
Schadencfreude is all about."
"Well, that's what killed
my future with Lili. I loved
her. I still love her. But I
couldn't face living with
her."
"Care to elucidate?" I
asked.
"You may have noticed
that F'm not the most
graceful guy in the world.
In fact I've been notori-
ously clumsy since I was a
kid. I work hard to conceal
it onstage."
"You do OK," I said.
"Lili used to laugh
herself sick whenever I
dropped anything I
bumped my head one day
getting in my Porsche. Lili
howled with laughter. Tears
streamed down her face."
"The di'nouement?" I
asked.
"The last straw came: a
week before we were to
get married. Lili and I went
over to the empty new
apartment to take some
measurements. As I got
out of the car, I dropped
the apartment key. It fell
through a metal grill in the
street. I couldn't fish it out."
"Did Lili thmnk that was
funny?" I asked.
"Funny?!She stood ~on
the sidewalk, doubled over,
and screamed with laugh-
ter. Like a maniac."
"And ...?" I asked.
"My whole future flashed
before my eyes, Believe me,
pal, for a guy as clumsy as
me, it wasn't a femny sce-
naio."
"No ... Did Lili have any
idea how you felt?"
"She must have known
after I paid the building's
super for the lost key and
didn't ask for a new, one."
"Looking back, do you
think you blew it when you
broke off with Lili?" I asked.
"WCho can tell? One
thing, though ... When I
told her it was quits, for
once, Lili didn't laugh."


in the canteen to cool off
after the show, Jason was
nowhere to be seen. He
phoned me the next morn--
ing early and asked me to
eat luiach with him in a
little restaurant.
Over Regensbitrger,
Wiirstchen and Sauerkraut,
Jason said suddenly, "I can't
marry Lili."
"Why? What's hap-
pened?"
"Nothing. I just can't go
through with it. I'11 tell you
about it someday." -
'"You don't owe me any
explanation, but have you
told her?"
"Not yet," he said. "'m
trying to come up with just
any reason I can to put it
off until the season is over."
After the wedding was
"postponed," Lili and Jason
continued to see each
other for a while. Then they
broke it off entirely. -
In the meantime I had
crossed the ocean to sing
in San Francisco, Montreal
and New Orleans. When
I returned to Heidelberg,
Jason was under contract
to the Hamburg Staatsoper.
Two months later, I went
to Hamburg to sing a guest '
performance of Verdi's Don
Carlo. Jason was the da
Posa, the baritone lead. We
met over coffee in the can-
teen after the performance.
"I really miss her," he
said. .
"Well, she was all yours
if you wanted her," I
answered.
"I wanted her all right,"
he said, shaking his head.
"Do you always destroy
your best-laid plans?" I
smiled wickedly. "~When I
think of all that gushy talk
of yours in the car going to
Basel."
"I know," he said. "But all
of a sudden, within a few
days, I began to face the
truth about Lili for the first
time. A marriage between
Lili and me couldn't pan
out in the long run."
"She too deurtsch for


you?"
"No. My God, she's new
generation. In most ways
she's like an American. You
know that."
"Then what is it?" I
asked.
"LYou're gonna think I'm
nuts," he started out.
"Give me some tougher
job than that, Jason," I
smiled.
"Seriou~sly, he said, as
I looked up at the ceiling.
"'You don't think I decided
this without damned good
reason, do you?"
"Of course not, Jason." I
waited.
"Well, in one word, it was
SchJadenfreu~de, he said. .
"Schaden~freude.P I
asked. "Tell me what the
hell Schadenfreude has to
do with your turning down
a beautiful, talented girl?"
"You know that I come
from Virginia," he said.
"So what gives on the
old plantation?" I mused
"My family are kind, gen-
teel people. Warm. Friendly.
Very respectful of peoples' -
feelings."
"That's nice. And ...?"
'4Pe're proud of having
a good sense of humor. We
kid around and laugh a lot
together. But we don't let
our humor get mean."
"Well, American humor
has tended to get mean
since Mark Twain and Will
Rogers," I said.
"Righit. Even as a kid, I
didn't think it was funny
in a movie if somebody
slipped on a banana peel
and damned near broke his
neck. I disliked The Three
Stooges. I didn't think
it was funny when Moe
slapped Curly in the face.
And Don Rickl~es has always
turned me off. Can't stand
him. What's funny about
insulting people? Hurting
them?"
"Nothing," I said. "You
know, historically, lots of
German humor is built
on just that. Laughing at
other people's troubles -


curtains came down. Over
coffee or beer, Jason and
Lili often told colleagues
that they planned to get
married. Jason, being
American, could not marry
in Germany. Jason found
out they could have a civil
wedding in Switzerland.
To keep him company,
I drove with him one day
down to Basel, a Swiss city
on the German border. I
had often sung opera in
Basel. In an Autobahn cof-
fee break, I phoned the
mayor of Basel, a guy I had
met at opera receptions.
He told me where Jason
could get a Swiss marriage
license.
We went through a
cobblestone courtyard and .
into a room with a beau-
tiful view of the Rhine. .
A polite lady who spoke
English took Jason's and
Lili's passports and typed
out a form. She asked him i
to select a day to bring Lii
to Basel for the mayor to
marry them. Jason took a
Spielplan (theater sched-
ule) out of his pocket. He
found a day, about a month
away, when neither he ixor
Lili had performances.
He set the date thien' and
there.
In the canteen of the big
German theater where they
rehearsed mornings and
performed evenings, Jason
and Lili sat and made plans.
They took a large, opulent
apartment near the the-
ater. They picked out new
furniture they would need,
and arranged for it to be
delivered to the apartment
before they were married.
Lili, an intense, ambi-
tious girl of many moods,
appeared to be in good
ones all the time. Jason,
on the other hand, seemed
increasingly quiet and
withdrawn as the days and
weeks went by.
He and I did "Otello"
together in his theater in
the week before he was to
marry Lili. When I went


beginning to get a clear pic-
ture of Barack Obama: My
impression is that he is a
phony "man of the people."
His huckster's technique
gives him the power to
sway the dumbed-down
crowds, but fulfilling their
needs and wishes seems far
from his mind. As to power,
he denies the masses
everything! No drilling, no
nuclear, no coal. He smiles
down benevolently upon
the people for whom he is
solving absolutely nothing.
"Knock it, but don't tell 'em
how to fix it!" seems his
m~antra. Obama's brilliance
is solely in his promises and
not in his delivering. Up to
now he has shown perspi-
cacious voters little to vote
for.

Present crisis must be
conquered or there is no
future. A friend helps us
get through a present cri-
sis ... Obama is no friend.
He moves us forward not
an inch toward solutions,


*A BULLET THAT IS
DEADLY!
The name of Dr. Joseph C..
Goebbels goes back in my
memories as far as senior
high school days. If Herr
Goebbels did nothing
else, he planted the term
"the big lie" in millions
of innocent minds. It was
not actually "the big lie"
that stuck with us through
the horrific Nazi days to
come, so much as it was
the "power" of the big lie
which we witnessed as it
annihilated millions of
people and changed the
map of Europe for years to
conie. The modern-day use
of the term "propaganda"
gained its frightening
prowess as Goebbels weak-
ened foes prior to the Nazi
onslaught. I suspect that
much of today's advertising
technique owes something
to the thought sublima-
tion and big lies of Joseph
Goebbels.

Where is the money Obama


was going to transfer to
Hillary to help her with her
campaign debts?

Monica Crowley, wh~o steps
in for Laura Ingraham, has
an impressively zippy way
about her.

If Hillary's name is brought
fourth at the Dem's con-
vention, all hell will break
loose! Thousands of
women who hate Obama
will be waiting to scream
Hillary's name.

The Democratic plot
to revive "The Fairness
Doctrine" issue works
directly against freedom of
speech. This un-American
concept is based upon
the wish to throttle "talk
radio," a medium in which
good conversation trans-
mits logical ideas most
effectively. "Neutrality" is
a deceptive euphemism
for the fairness doctrine,
and it tries to hide the fact
that there is violation of


the First Amendment here.
Such questionable terms
as "Islamic terrorism" are
frowned upon, despite
the fact that they seem
accurately descriptive.
The naked truth makes
Democratic "spinners"
uncomfortable.

Alaska's Gov. Sarah Palin
insists we.should be drill-
ing in ANWAR now. From a
tiny acreage, we can pump
enough oil to drive 60 mil-
lion cars for the next 60
years by that time, we
should have found many
new answers.

Charles Krauthammer
states, "The onl3/ way is to
increase the supply of oil,
and we have the supply!"

Why is Florida's Sen. Mel
Martinez a foot-dragger up
to now doesn't he repre-
sent the common needs of
the common people?

rysms." The Senior Center for
SHealth & Security is a non-
profit educational organiza-
tion that seeks to enhance the
lives of older Americans.
Atherosclerosis is the pri-
mary cause of coronary heart
disease and stroke and is the
leading cause of death in the
United States. Together, heart
disease and stroke kill more
Americans every year than all
- cancers combined.
The risk factors of athero-
sclerosis are many, with smok-
ing, elevated cholesterol, high
blood pressure, unhealthy eat-
ing habits, and family history
joining aging as the primary
culprits. Because plaque tends
to build up slowly in the arter-
ies, atherosclerosis usually has
no symptoms until the artery
becomes severely narrowed
Sor completely blocked.
See DISEASE on page B6


Most people don't realize they
suffer from atherosclerosis
until they have a heart attack
or stroke. Atherosclerosis, or
hardening of the arteries, is
a silent killer, often with no
visible signs or symptoms.
Atherosclerosis often starts
early, with two of every three
of us already suffering from
plaque buildup in our arteries
by the age of 35.
According to Michelle
Plasari, president of the
Senior Center for Health and
Security, "As we get older,
arterial plaque can build up
and restrict blood flow. The
pressure from these depos-
its causes the artery walls to
thicken and stiffen until even-
tuhlly the arteries become
blocked and closed. These
blockages can lead to heart
attack, heart failure, kidney
failure, stroke~ and aneu-

THE OBSERVER

On July 1, AARP, the associa-
-tion for Americans age 50 and
over, celebrates its own 50th
.birthday. In the last half-cen-
tury, AARP has grown from a
collection of index cards on
a California kitchen table to
the natican's largest nonprof-
it membership association,
with more than 39 million
members.
AARP, formerly the
American Association of
Retired Persons, was founded
by Dr. Ethel Percy Andrus, the
first California female high-
school principal and a lead-
ing educator. Moved by the
plight of retired California
teachers who were barely sur-
viving with few if any pen-
sion benefits, Andrus founded
the National Retired Teachers
Association. Eleven years later,
she founded AARP, which was
dedicated to promoting inde-
pendence, dignity and pur-
pose for mid-life and older
Americans. Fifty years later,
the association's goals remain
the same.
Today, AARP claims over 38
million members, making it


one of the largest member-
ship organizations for people
age 50 and over in the United
States. Membership is expect-
ed to grow significantly as
baby boomers age. -
AARP is a nonpartisan
membership organization
that helps people 50 and over
have independence, choice
and control in affordable
ways that benefit thiem and
society as a whole. The non-
profit advocate for seniors is
one of the most powerful lob-
bying groups in the United
States. The organization pro-
duces "AARP The Magazine"
published bimonthly; "AARP
Bulletin," 'a monthly newspa-
per; a Web site, AARP.org; and
it also sells insurance, invest-
ment funds and other finan-
cial products.
AAiRP is not only working
with the 50-and-over genera-
tion but all generations to cre-
ate positive change on topics.
such as affordable health care
and financial security.
Recently, AARP has joined
with national business and
labor groups to create the
Divided We Fail movement
-- DjividedWeFail.org -- to
help Americans improve


access to affordable health
care and to create better tools
to achieve lifetime financial
security. AARP State President
Judith Thames was~ recently
in Central -Florida letting the
general public learn more
about the Divided- We Fail
movement.
To _break through
Washington gridlock and
spur action, the movement
is collecting pledges from
Divided We Fail voters, col-
lecting Americans' true-life
stories about financial secu-
rity ~and health care, waging
an intensive -national adver-
tising and political action
campaign, and reaching out


to ordinary Americans.
The .AARP; Foundationj is
an -affiliated~ charity that pro-
vides security;, protection and.
empowerment to older per-
sons in need with support
from thousands ofvolunteers,
donors and sponsors.
Today AARP is building on
past successes and creating
new legaicies' for the future.
AARP's` vision ifs - a society
in which everyone is able'
to grow older with dignity,
choice and purpose, reach-
ing to fulfill their goals and
dreams. AARP is looking for'
ward to another 50 years ~of
distinction, excitement and
positive change.


COPD, from the front page

has developed several pulmonary rehab
programs. Broskowitz is the manager of
the Pulmonary Lab at Florida Hospital.
"Florida Hospital is dedicated to com-
munity service and we have made it part
of our focus she said. "'This free COPD
forum and screenings is just one of the
programs being developed for the com-
munity. This is our first time at Marks
Street Senior Center."
"'COPD is a serious lung disease that,
over time, makes it hard to breathe. Most
people who are at risk for getting COPD
have never heard of it and in many cases
don't even realize that the condition has
a, name," Broskowitz said.
"COPD is a preventable and treat-
able disease," McGuire said. "The COPD
Foundation has been established to
speed innovations which will make
treatments more effective and afford-
able and improve the lives of patients
with COPD and related disorders."
"Often COPD is called by other names,
like emphysema or chronic bronchitis,"
McGuire said. "With, people who have
COPD, the tubes (airways) that carry
air in and ouit of your lungs are partly
blocked, vihich makes it hard to get air
in and out."
In 2006, Orange County experienced
349 fatalities due to COPD, 5.3 per cent
of all deaths. This number was greater in
Orange .County than that of strokes, the
nation's third leading, cause of death.
Within Orange County the number of
COPD deaths is greater than the num-
ber of deaths due to diabetes and AIDS
combined.

sage, performed by a trained
therapist, can effectively
promote drainage of lymph
fluid. It's called manual lym-
phatic drainage, and prac-
ticing therapists are found
in about every section of
the country. The National
Lymphedema Network can

you with information on this
condition. You can reach the
network at 1-800-541-3259

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: My
doctor has me taking two
blood pressure medicineS
eve-~ day. There was a timie
when my pressure was quzte


high. Now it's normal. I take
my pressure every day. I
am retired, and~ think that
brought my pressure down.
Can I safely stop one of my
blood pressure medicines?
- D.K.

ANSWER: It would be safe for
you if your doctor thinks it is
a good idea. He or she prob-
ably will, if you discuss it.
When you see your doctor,
bring with you a record of
your blood pressures. That
information will carry much
weight in making the right
decision.
Blood pressure medicine
is usually, but not always,
taken for life. If people make
big life changes reduce
their salt intake, exercise,
lose weight, minimize life's
stresses then it is possible
to decrease the dose of blood
pressure medicine and some-
times to eliminate it.

and tissues. It provides nutri-

vessels similar to arteries
and veins but more delicate
- are open-ended affairs
that suction lymph fluid and
eventually return it to the .
circulation. On its journey
back to the main circulation,
lymph fluid passes through
lymph nodes, which remove
from it foreign material and
germs.
Anything' that disrupts the
return of fluid back to the
circulation causes swelling
- lymphedema. In your case,.
the disruption was breast
surgery with removal of
lymph nodes. About 15 per-
cent of women who undergo
such breast surgery develop
lymphedema of the arm
on the side of: the removed
breast.
Early treatment of lym-
phedema prevents perma-
nent changes from happen-
ing. Arm elevation encour-
ages drainage out of the arm.
Elastic garments squeeze
lymph fluid back into the
main circulation. Corripres-
sion pumps are another way
to mobilize the fluid.

The latest lab study involved
application of an over-the-
counter moisturizer with a
magic ingredient added in
a six-month double-blind
process. That means no-
body knew what was in the
bottles of lotion except the
researchers themselves.
So what was this "magic"
ingredient? It's Retinol, a
form of vitamin A, and the
same ingredient that Madi-
son Avenue advertisers have
been pushing for years. Who
knew? This research affects
not only looks, but seriouS
medical issues such as bed
sores, tears, ulcers and. bruis-


ing, as Retinol could make
skin withstand injuries.
That's not to say we should
all rush out and buy lotion
that contains Retinol. For
one thing, it causes skin to
dry ou~t, and in some cases
can cause sun sensitivity. If
you'd like to try it, ask your
dermatologist or doctor for a
product name recommenda-
tion. N\ot all Retinol products
are the same.

of skin aging and wrinkles, I
had to pay attention.
Wrinkles in seniors de-
velop because we have much
less collagen than we did
years ago, as much as two-
thirds less. It's the collagen
that keeps skin looking firm.
Lying just under the inner
dermis layer, it keeps the skin
above padded and stretched.
Less collagen means less sup-
port.

of atherosclerosis and learn
what can happen if the build-
up of plaque in their arteries is
*allowed to progress. Next, do
what they can to reduce their
risks for the consequences of
the disease."
Plasari explained that peo-
ple should start their educa-
tional plan by talking with
their doctors. To learn -if
they're at risk, Plasari recom-
mends that people get their
blood pressure, blood sugar,
and levels of good and bad


cholesterol checked.
She said, "Doctors will most
likely recommend ways to
improve the health of arter-
ies, such as to stop smoking,
eat a heart-healthy diet, and
exercise more. If these aren't
enough, they might recom-
mend medication. Various
medicines can slow or
sometimes even reverse the
effects of atherosclerosis."
Various educational tools
are available, including a
video on SeniorsForCures.org


that provides a journey deep
inside the body to see how
risk factors like high levels of
bad cholesterol, smoking and
high blood pressure help con-
tribute to the development
and progression of athero-
sclerosis.
Said Plasari, "Making
healthy lifestyle choices and
talking to your doctor are
good first steps in the fight
against atherosclerosis."


DISEASE, from B4
A recent Harris survey
found that despite its threat,
only about half of Americans
understand the deadly dan-
ger of atherosclerosis. While
aware of risk factors and con-
sequences of atherosclerosis,
Americans are uninformed
about the condition itself.
Plasari said, "The first thing
people can do about athero-
sclerosis is to educate them-

Florida project aids scammed seniors


If you have some spare time and
want to get involved in a program
that helps seniors who have been
victimized, look ~no further.` Seniors
vs. Crime offers a great opportunity
for you to help others by volunteering
to become a Senior Sleuth in their
office: Volunteer Senior Sleuths, 50
years and older, field complaints and
attempt to resolve them to the best
of their abilities.
Seniors vs. Crime volunteers pro-
vide important assistance to the
crime-fighting effort at the local
level. The program focuses on uneth-
ical businesses and individuals who
believe that senior citizens are help-
less. The reality through Seniors vs.
Crime is that these citizens may
actually be working with the attorney
general's office.
In 1989, some of Florida's most
effective crime fighters were
unleashed through the creation of
the Attorney General's Seniors vs.
Crime Project. This effective unit has
allowed senior citizens to become
involved in not only their own pro-
tec ion, but also that of their fellow
citizens.
The Seniors vs. Crime program
operates throughout the state and
can serve as eyes and ears for
the attorney general. It also allows
seniors to volunteer, or actively assist
in consumer protection investiga-
tions. These volunteers have been
responsible for recovering over $5
million for seniors who were th~e vic-
tims of con artists.
If you are interested, stop by the
Seniors vs. Crime office in the Oviedo
Marketplace mall's lower level in the
C.0.P.S. Center on Mondays between
10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and fill out an
application, or call 407-571-8462.
They are located near Dillard's.
Volunteers are needed to work in
this location.

THE OBSERVER

Crime is on the rise, particularly against
seniors. Criminals often regard older persons
as easy targets. They choose seniors because
'they often have large sums of money from life
savings, or because they can find a senior's
"soft ~spot." Seniors can sometimes be lonely
and looking for companionship, so they tend
to let down their guard and allow people into
their homes and personal lives.
There are many scam artists looking for
a vulnerable senior. There are scams ors the
Internet, phone calls to private homes asking
for money for a charity, calls f~r found money
- anything a scain artist can think of is per-
petrated against seniors.
But there is something seniors can do. If
a senior feels that he has been scammed or
taken advantage of by unethical businesses or -
individuals, Seniors vs. Crime, a special proj-
ect of the Florida Alttorney General's Office,
might be able to help.
The Oviedo Police Department, in part-
nership with the Attorney General's office,
provides an opportunity for victims to speak
with a senior volunteer who might be able to
help. The services are free, but it is restricted
to civil not criminal situations for which
an attorney has not been consulted and there
is no involvement of court actio~n. Complaints
of a criminal nature are referred to the proper
law enforcement agency, while complaints
of a civil nature are processed at the office or
referred to other agencies for ultimate resolu-

It is also up to seniors to become aware of
typical scams and fraud. Some of the most
common types of fraud include:

Bank examiner
A phony bank examiner contacts you and
asks for help in catching a dishonest bank
employee. You are asked to withdraw a spe-
cific amount of cash from your account so
that he or she may check the serial numbers
and return the money. Mfter turning over your
money to the examiner, you never hear from
them again,

Charities
While legitimate charitable organizations
often contribute positively to the needs of the
local community, many organizations prey
on the compassion of citizens to effect high-
pressure solicitation tactics and fraudulent
activities. Prior to contributing to a charitable
organization, make sure that the organiza-
tion is legitimate.

Door-to-dioor sales
Have you ever been approached by someone
selling magazines or books for a charity or' to
helja a needy student? Check his or her cre
dentials. Ask for identification and ask lots
of questions. Many door-to-door sales are
not legitimate. Local laws protect you against
quick sales at your door.

Home improvements
Fraudulent companies demand partial or
complete payment in advance, followed by
poor work or. no work at all. Check with
the City Licensing Department or the Better
Business Bureau to be sure that you are deal-
ing with a real or reputable contractor:

Identity theft
Identity theft, skimming and other crimes
related to criminals getting your personal and
banking information is the fastest-growing,
costliest consumer crime today. Identity theft
and information skimming have become real
concerns among law enforcement and finan-
cial institutions.

Telemarketing fraud
Telemarketing is one of the most popular
forms of fraud. The con artist calls using some
fraudulent pitch to make you lose your money.
One such fraud is the free-trip scam. You will
be asked to send a deposit to hold your plane
ticket or to pay for the taxes. Once you have
paid all the hidden costs, the trip costs more
than it would have had you booked it throu h
a reputable firm. Do not hesitate to check cre-
dentials and do a little research.
If you feel you have been scammed, victim-
ized or cheated, or have paid out money for
work that was not done, contact the Seniors
vs. Crime office. The Seniors vs. Crime pro-
gram operates throughout the state and can
serve as eyes and ears for the attorney gen-
eral. .
Volunteer Senior Sleuths in the Seniors vs.
Crime office field complaints and attempt
to resolve them to the best of their abilities.
These volunteers have been responsible for
recovering over $5 million for seniors who
were the victims of con artists.
Seniors-vs. Crime is a nonprofit organiza-
tion and services are free. They are able to
help anyone who has been taken advantage
