on past halftime, as neither
team could keep the ball in
the other's box.
The yellow cards were
flying at: the midfield as the
Kraze found themselves
near a brawl after a dis-
puted call turned flagrant,
but both teams managed
to calm ~down and get back
into the game.
The Academics attacked
the Kraze net midway
through thie second half,
sending several scary shots
off the crossbar and the up-
rights, but none into the net,
thanks to the Kraze's strong
defense and the brick wall
of goalie David Gorriek.
As the clock ticked to
zero, the Kraze were cel-
ebrating an undefeated sea-
son at home, even with a
long weekend looming.
"It feels great to keep the
streak going," midfielder
Tanner Wolfe said. "But it
was a tough game." ~
The Kraze took the six-
hour ride to Panama City
last weekend to face the Pi-
rates for the last time this
season. They would split the
series, losing the first game
3-0, but bouncing back 4-2


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

It took two days and a week
in between for the Kraze
soccer team to settle one of
their most important scores
in the season clinching a
spot in the playoffs.
But they did just that, and
in one of the niost dramatic
ways possible. They tied the
Bradenton Academics 0-0
last Thursday, giving them a
statistically insurmountable
advantage in the chase for
the Premier Development
League Southeast Division
Championship.
"We knew it ~could hap-
pen coming into the game,
even if wetied," Coach Joe
Avallone said, "but Braden-
ton is a very hard team to
beat "
That's just what the Kraze
did Thursday, restarting a
game that had been rain de-
layed the week before, open-
ing play in the 39th minute
with a score of nil-nil bely-

to end the series on a high
note and cement their place
in the 16-team playoff se-
ries.
But they did more than
that with their most recent
win. They became a rare
team to win their district
and conference titles. The
team hasn't done that since
2004, when they were- the


PDL national champions.
With a win in their final
game and some help from
Other teams, they could
carry the regular-season
crown.
The Kraze get one final
grudge match against Bra-
denton before the playoffs
come. At 5:30 p.m. Friday,
July 18, they'll be in Bra-

said. "It allowed us to dig
deeper into the member-

to members. Based on the
interest and response we re-
ceived, we will probably do
more."

so many members who
have concerns about im-
portant community issues,"
said Sam Stark, president of
the Winter Park Chamber.
"The chamber will contin-
ue to monitor these issues
and represent our members
who overwhelmingly sup-

noted that for those already famil-

difference: you'll see an electronic
readout on the ballot-collecting
machine that will let you know if
you made a mistake, and give you a
chance to correct it.

day night in Clermont, by a score of
9-6, further dampened their season
outlook, despite offensive fireworks
from the Dawgs to keep it close.
They started this week at 12-17,
struggling to keep up with the Bel-
leview Bulldogs, who grabbed the
FCSL league lead with eight wins in
a row to catapult them to an 18-9


record.
That puts the Dawgs seven games
out with 10 games left in the sea-
son as of Wednesday. Barring a long
winning streak of their own, they're
a long shot for the regular season
crown:
Their longest streak of the season
was their first three games June 5, 6


and 7. The team they beat to open
the season: Belleview.
The Dawgs return home at 7 p.m.
Friday, July 18, against Leesburg,
and again at 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 22,
against Orlando. Then they'll hit the
road for the finaL~six games.

She is still working toward get-

has the help of a skilled law firm,
which is offering its services for
free. Turns out, Miriam was still fil~
ing forms she didn't qualify for.
"If there's one form that you
do wrong, you've just ruined ev-
erything for yourself," said Mayra
Uribe, head paralegal at the law
firm of NeJame, LaFay, Jancha,
Barker & Joshi, which has se't the
Becks on the right track.
If Miram had listened to an aide
in Congressman Tom Feeney's of-
fice, who told her to go to England
and apply there, she would have
been barred from the U.S. for 10
years, Uribe said.
Miriam was able to submit a new
citizenship application thanks to
about $1,000 in community dona
tions. U.S. Senator Bill Nelson is
even working to expedite her work
permit application, Uribe said.

But there's one hurdle left -


The Beck family of Oviedo would like to
thank some of the people who have helped
them through their troubles with immigration
and a difficult pregnancy. In the Becks' words:
Sandy and David Ribakoff for being our emo-
tional support and the only family we have.
Michele and Tim Major. There are no words
to describe the amount of kindness they have
shown us, and the things they have provided
for us. Richard and Nancy W~oodruff. These
two have been there for us in a way in which
we can never repay them. Stephan and Lisa
Burkey for their kindnes-i and their help.
Pastor Tim Harris of Trinity Assembly of
God Church and all the people who prayed
for us and what they provided for us. All the
parents of my son Sam's classmates for their
kindness and help. Holly and the people at
The Metro Church. They have provided so
di~uch for us in the short time we have known
them. Mr. Dan Sadler for his heartfelt gener-
osity. Dale Ziglear for always supporting us.
Miss Lynn for becoming a friend and helping
us with her kindness and love. Joan and Dave
Micelli for comforting us and helping us in
their own way. The Brinkman family for help-
ing so much and supporting us. Mr. Guy who
put us in touch with the church and Joanne
and Nanci for their emotional support and
kindness.

where she performed vision screening for
young children.
Ginny enjoyed traveling, perhaps no more
so than to the family's vacation home in
South Carolina. Whether taking quiet, walks
on the beach with Bob, visiting with the
couple's many close friends, or playing ex-
tended, competitive games of Uno and poker
with her granddaughters, Ginny was always
interested in learning and experiencing the
new and different.
Ginny is survived by her husband Bob;
sons Jeffrey T. Gill of Prospect, Ky., and R.
Scott Gill of Chicago; granddaughters Erin
Beatty, Bailey Gill and Kelsey Gill; and her
brother Jack Gibson of Carson City, Nev.
A celebration of- her full and wonderful life
will take place in the form of a memorial ser-
vice for family and friends to be announced
at a later date. Online condolences may be
sent at PearsonFuneralHome.com.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made
in memory of Ginny to the Cabbage Patch
Settlement House or the American Cancer
Society.


Virginia G. Gill, 80, of Winter Park, Fla.,
passed away peacefully in the early morning
hours of Tuesday, July 15, 2008, in the warm
embrace of her family.
A native of California, Ginny was born in
San Mateo on Aug. 28, 1927, the fourth of
five children of Ted and Della Gibson. She
was raised in the Bay Area and graduated
from the University of California at Berke-
ley in 1949 with a degree in liberal arts. It
was during her senior year at Berkeley that
she met young graduate student and former
Navy Lt. J.G. Robert E. Gill, the result of a
blind date on a rare uncommitted Friday eve-
ning.
Ginny and Bob were married in San Fran-
cisco the evening of Dec. 24, 1951, and em-
barked upon a loving partnership that would
span six decades.
The young couple initially relocated to
New York City, where Bob was to serve as a
sales trainee for the Otis Elevator Company.
Over the ensuing years and career advance-
ments, Ginny and Bob were to live in a variety
of locations, including Seattle, Los Angeles,
Louisville, Ky., and Winter Park.
Ginny possessed a bright and inquisi-
tive mind, and enjoyed a lifelong affinity
fof crossword puzzles, reading and making
certain that her husband, boys and grand-
daughters spoke with absolute grammati-
cal precision. She served as a fearless den
mother, a dedicated member of the PTA and
a Little League scorekeeper of unchallenged
integrity. Ginny donated her time extensively
to various philanthropic organizations, in-
cluding the American Red Cross, where she
served as a volunteer for over 25 years, and
the American Printing House for the Blind,

Grand opening of new
playground at Azalea Lane
Where in the City of Win-
ter Park can you find a new
kid-sized log cabin, a tea
cup large enough to sit in, a
huge ladybug to ride on, and
a train with a dining car just
for children all in one fun
place? Until July 31, those
cool things were nowhere
to be found. .But now, due
to funding from the City of
Winter Park and Keep Win-
ter Park Beautiful, the city
can offer these fun new
amenities to the commu-
nity at its new playground
at Azalea Lane Recreation
Center.

will be celebrating the
grand opening of the Aza-
lea Lane playground on
Wednesday, July 31, from 10
a.m. to noon. With $137,000
of funding, the city was able
to renovate the existing
playground with new play-
ground equipment, bench-
es, picnic tables with shade
structures, and an inviting
log cabin, teacup, ladybug
and choo-choo train.
Prior to the renovation,
the old playground equip-
ment built in the late 80s
had already reached its
useful life. With this fund-
ing, the Parks & Recreation
Department has created a
whirlwind of new fun activ-
ities for toddlers and kids of
all ages to enjoy.
The city encourages fami-
lies to come and visit Azalea

Focus on campaign
finanCO rfofrm, COnfliCtS
In January 2008, the Winter
Park City Commission ap-
proved a- resolution estab-
lishing a City of Winter Park
Ethics Board and board
member appointments
were confirmed in May. At
the July 14 City Commis
sion meeting, the Ethics
Board presented its recom-
mendations to focus on two
specific topics: campaign fi-
nance ~reform and conflicts
of interest. The board's rec-
ommendations were unani-
mously approved by the City
Commission. `
As part of its focus, the
Ethics Board has scheduled
a series of speakers whose
input will help guide the
board as it prepares recom-
mendations on campaign
finance reform for the City
Commission's consider-
ation later this year. Dr.

College Professor for the


to a treatment facility such
as a wet detention pond.
Every single home within
the city represents a certain
amount of impervious sur-
face, so everyone is responsi-
ble for a portion of the city's
storm water. The amount
of a resident's fee is deter-
mined by the amount of
impervious surface on their
property, which equates to
the amount of storm water
runoff.

How does it benefit me?
An Environmental Storm-
water Utility will exist .to
completely fund the Lakes
and Stormwater Division of
the city. It will be used for
daily activities such as street
sweeping and inlet cleaning,
and projects such as large-
scale herbicide treatments
or storm water infrastruc-
ture improvements.
It will also fund state-
mandated projects in asso-
- ciation with recent TMDL
(Total Maximum Daily
Load) allocations. A proper-
ly functioning storm water
system ensures that streets
do not flood and water
quality in our lakes remains
healthy. Benefits such as
these are not only helpful
for individual residents, but
they' also make Maitland a
healthier and more enjoy-


able place in which to live.'

is this new?
Storm water utilities ex-
ist in more than 100 cities
throughout Florida. Orlan-
do, Winter Park, Altamonte
Springs and Winter Springs
are just a few nearby cities
that utilize this source of
revenue along with more
distant cities like Miami and
Tallahassee. Maitland is, in
fact,` behind in establishing
its own dedicated utility to
support Stormwater and
Lakes Management.

What now?
The City of Maitland is cur-
rently in the process of de-
veloping a citywide ESU
with the anticipation of in-
stituting it in October 2008.


Please attend the public
City Council meetings in
the fall to show your sup-
port for its establishment.
The dates and times of the
meetings will be posted on
the city Web site, ItsMyMai-
tland.com.
Help spread the word by
notifying your friends and
neighbors so they, too, can
learn about the benefits that
an ESU will provide.
Contact your City Council
members to let them know
that Maitland's citizens are
interested and eager to see
what an ESU will provide
for the city.

Marissa Rodriguez,
StorinwateryLakres Man-
agement Coordintator


In order to assure our com-
munity that our lakes are
taken care of to the best of
our ability, the city of Mait-
land is considering creating
an Environmental Storm-
water Utility. The following
answers many questions
about it. My thanks to Ma-
risSa Rodriguez, lakes man-
agement coordinator, for
her contributions to this
article.
MayorDoug Kintson

What is it'
An Environmental Storm-
water Utility (ESU) is the
same as a fee for garbage
services or water consump-
tion. However, it is collect-
ed specifically for projects
and maintenance related
to storm water. ESU fees are
paid on a monthly basis in
addition to your other util-
ity bills. The amount of the
fee is determined by the size


of the building in which you
live. Smaller houses equate
to smaller fees and vice
versa. The unit used to mea-
sure this amount is called an
Equivalent Residential Unit
(ERU) and applies to build-
ings with an area from 2,167
to 2,994 square feet. Houses
smaller than 2,167.square
feet are equivalent to.7 ERU
and homes from 2,994 to
4,499 feet are 1.4 ERU. Larg-
er structures are then calcu-
lated using an ERU of 2,532
feet as the base unit.

How is it determined?
Due to impervious surfaces
such as concrete, every time
a rainstorm occurs, rain-
water is forced to flow off a
property instead of draining
into the soil. This rainwater
is then directed into an inlet
or some other storm water
structure that either trans-
ports it directly to a lake or

Is Maitland ready for a
new museum building?
The Maitland Historical Society will
be hosting a public charette at 5:30
p.m. Wednesday, July 23, at the Gar-
den Club at Lake Lily. The Society will
release the results of its recent fea-
sibility study, conducted by Donovan
Management. The society's goals are
to consolidate its two museum loca-
tions into one, moving its collections
together. A new building would also
give the society more space to hold
education programs, exhibits .and
other community services.
Come and hear what Maitland has
to say about a new building. Plus,

les. That's how good these
artists really. are, and they
just graduated in May.
"The wonderful thing
about being in New York is
that I went to meet them
and they trusted me enough
to send me their best art,
Garrick said.
"It's going to be an ~amaz-
ing show it really is." He
said most of the art are oil
paintings that show "the
amazing talent" these art-
ists have. ,
"Another interesting as-
pect is the international fla-
vor of the art," Garrick said.
"There are artists from Spain,
Korea and Puerto Rico and,
of course, America.
"There is no single


through-line in the artistic
voice of this work," he said.
"Along with painting that
includes everything from
pure abstraction to 'lit-
eral realism,' photography
and sculpture will also be
shown. The single common
denominator in this show
is the quality of the work. I
was looking for quality and
diversity. The excitement
derives when one considers
the future in art that these
extraordinarily talented art-
ists may look forward to."
The exhibit will open Fri-
day, July 18, from 7 p.m. to 9

ing to be blamed for the
demise of America's car
industry because you, diear
reader, are dumber than a
box of rocks for demanding
and purchasing vehicular
behemoths, then I recom-
mend sharing the blame -
and consequences with
management for not pre-
sciently planning for a fu-
ture of high gas prices. And
planning accordingly!
What, pray tell, do we
want of corporate manage-
ment if not profitability? Is
planning not a character-
Sistic of profits? Is anticipat-
ing a "volatile" future not a
responsibility of manage-
ment? And adjusting?
Remember Enron? When
thousands upon thousands
of Eilron employees lost
their jobs and retirements
due to "bad" management, I
thought Ken Lay and Jeffrey
Killing should have been
publicly hung from the
front of corporate head-
quarters. An employee trial
would have sufficed. Due
process, don't-cha know.
What a salubrious effect
that would have on Ameri-
can corporate business
practices. Seriously. Why
not?
You murder someone
and the American ethic
these days is you die. I get
-it. Totally. "They" even want
to now execute for rape.
Again, I get it. I do.
Yet, if you murder "a"
co oraiotn, asd Lty and
the employees are raped of
their jobs and their retire-
ments, in many instances
the responsible corporate
management team is long
gone, having floated away
to the Caribbean on their
"Golden Parachutes."
Where is the justice in
that? America's corporate
automotive management
teams are murdering
America's car industry. Oh,
they'll blame it on you (me)
and the unions, but time
and again there have been
events that foreshadowed


today's economic environ-
ment, yet our corporations
continually lose market
share (profitability) and the
only way it seems to correct
"the" problem is to cut jobs
and renegotiate benefits.
How about anticipating
the automotive market and
adjusting so that you don't
lose market share to Japa-
nese and Korean manufac-
.tirers? Huh?
Banks aire failing in Cali-
fornia from bad sub-prime
loans. Hmmm? Why don't
we just let the "market"
work this out? Why the
talk of bailing out Freddie
Mac and Fannie Mae? Let's
simply separate the wheat
from the chaff. Let the
market work. Sounds like
capitalism to me. (You can
genuflect now.)
A public hanging or
two might work, too. They
would be a shot across the
bow. A heads-up. A wake-up
call. A knock to the head.
Hello! Is anyone home?
In Japan, there is the
occasional instance of sep-
puku (suicide through a
knife in the stomach) for
gross failure as a corporate
leader. They perform this
rite as a matter of honor. If
that were a common prac-
tice in America, our cor-
porate boardrooms would
be awash in blood. But it
"ain't" gonna happen.
Let me end with a quote
by Theodore Roosevelt:
"J do o dislike but cer-

spect or admiration for and
no trust in, the typical big
moneyed men of my coun-
try. I do not regard them as
furnishing sound opinion
as respects either foreign or
domestic business."
Republican John McCain
has identified Teddy as his
presidential role model.

you might reasonably ask?
What happened in 50 years
since Detroit ruled the
manufacturing world-? How
could an industry so domi-
nant, so much the wonder
and envy of the world, find
itself on the brink of bank-
ruptcy, not even fit for ac-
quisition? GM now has less
stock value than Starbucks.
And Starbucks is contract-
ing.
I was recently listening
to NPR "explain" the prob-
lem; they laid it at the door-
step of unions and an ac-
quiescent business manage-
ment, that in lieu of large
pay inc reases back in the
flusher 1950s both parties
agreed to health insurance
coverage and generous
retirement programs. The
car companies then had
a young work force that
required neither health
insurance nor retirement
income. Fiddle-dee-dee, I'll
think about that tomorrow!
Arguably, both programs
could be a government
function or a private matter
depending on your point
of view and your personal
circumstances. Know what
I mean?
Regardless, I suggest an
additional target of culpa-
bility- upper management.
If we as consumers are go-


I'll drink to that. This Bud's
for you, America! Bud's now
Belgian. One by one, our
American corporations go
on the world market and
are acquired for so much
chump change, walk-
'around money with our
funny money devalued dol-
lar. Sigh. What's a patriot
to do? Wait until we start
paying for our petroleum in
Euros.
You know, of course, the
demise of the American
automobile industry is be-
ing blamed on Americans.


SThat's you and me, kid. Yes, ~
we wanted big gas-guzzling
monster vehicles and by
gawd, Detroit delivered. I
particularly like this argu-
ment. It's similar to the joke
of the crying businessman
who is dejectedly wailing
over the loss of his com-
pany. When questioned of
what went wrong of why
he sold his love, his bust-
ness he exclaims, "They
met my price."
Detroit (Ford, GM & .
Chrysler) will probably
not survive intact. Why,

When I met you, he said,
I was so glad to meet some-
one who was not run-of-
the-mill.
Same here, she said.
Every Tom, Dick and Harry
on this campus speaks only
in cliches. They bore me to
tears. When you've see one,
you've seen 'em all. .
Cliches get under my
skin too, he said,
... and in my hair, she
said.
When I met you, we
were like ships that pass in
the night, he said.
Well, Rome wasn't built
in a day. After I met you, I
began to feel I had it made,
she said.
You were meant for me.
I can tell you, experience is
the best teacher, he said.
You're the cream in my
coffee. And you're the salt

FALLEN APPLES NOT FAR FROM MY TREE #f59

as a god, he said.
Well, she said, you are
slender as a rail.
But, he said, I used to be
fat as a pig. It didn't sit well
with me, no matter how I
sliced it.
It was your way or the
highway, she said. You had
to come in first.
That's why F'm rich as
Croesus, he said. I've got
the first nickel I ever made.
But I believe in share
and share alike, she said.
And I hoped you'd have
deep pockets.
My heart's like stone, he
said.
I can soften you up, she
said.
So give it a try, he said.
Nothing ventured, nothing
gained.
I'll find a way. Keep an
open mind, she said.
That would make me
happy as a king, he said.
You touched a soft spot in
my heart.
I'll pull myself together
and put on my thinking
cap, she said. By the way,
how did you get so rich?
Blind luck, that's all, he
said.
From now on, it'll be
the blind leading the blind,
they said in unison.
P've got to call it an eve-
ning, she said.
But no good-byes, he
said.
No, just until we meet
again ...
Sleep tight, keep your
powder dry, he said.
Right on the button! And
keep it outta the wind, she
said.
Don't give it a sec-
ond thought, he said.
Tomorrow's another day!


slipped my mind to tell you
that since I met you, every-
thing's changed, it's a new
world for me, she said. -
Your voice is like a
spring breeze. I think
Shakespeare said that.
Well, T.S. Eliot has no
rhyme or reason, she said,
and Frost is like a fork in
the road.
John Donne's done done
me in, he added. -
And suckling sounds
dirty, she said.
I get chills when I hear
your voice. It's like a bird-
song, he said.
You light up the sky for
me. I get ideas and goose
bumps, she said.
I guess we're just birds of
a feather, he said.
Yes, just two hearts that
beat as one, she said. -
With never a dull
moment.
Time flies when F'm with
you. Everyone else ho-hums
me, she said. I'11 never let
you down. .
Cross your heart? he
asked.
And hope to die. You can
take that to the bank! she
said.
It's hard to find the right
words to express the way I
feel, he said.
Words escape me too,
she said. You have the right
words for everything.
My mind's a bottomless
pit, he said. Right now 'm
at a loss for words.
For me, you're always
right as rain, she said.
Right now I feel there's
not a cloud in our sky, he
said. -
You're the star in my
blue heaven, she said. Next
to you, everyone else is dull
as dishwater. I'11 never be


the same again,
I hope not! he said. Don't
change a hair on your head.
Stay as sweet as you are,
you're the top.
Just keep your eye on the
ball, she said.
You can count on me,
he said. F'm just stalling for
time. Our time has come.
Time to stand up and cheer.
I realize P've been bottom-
fishing all these years.
You hit the spot, she
said. F'm in seventh heaven.
This happens only once
in a blue moon, he said, in
a lifetime. I'll believe that
more and more, as time
goes by.
Once in a while, it just

Correspondence with
Betty Wi~rlson

A letter from Betty Wilson
transports my thoughts
back to the fall of 1938,
when I met incipient
great author Sloan Wilson
at a table in the Harvard
Freshman Union. I7Twenty-
nine years later, Sloan
sat with me in Boston
Symphony Hall after I had
sung as soloist with Arthur
Fiedler and the Boston
Pops Orchestra.
In 1980, when Joy and I
were married and bought
a house in Winter Park, I
was greatly surprised -
and greatly delighted to
learn that Sloan and Betty
Wilson lived nearby in a
house on Bonita. For three
years at Harvard, Sloan aid
I had lived in Eliot House,
shared social events, and
were friends. Then came
Pearl Harbor. Sloan went
to Greenland on a Coast
Guard Icebreaker, and I
went to the South Pacific
on a Destroyer Escort -
four duty-filled years.
When Sloan met Betty,
she was dancing on
Broadway in "Guys and
Dolls." Sloan, by then, was
famous for his novels "The
Man In The Gray Flannel
Suit," "A Summer Place,"


and others, some of which
were made into movies.
Betty was then, as now, a
highly attractive, good-
looking gal with a rapier
wit. She and Sloan made a
pair against whom there
was no defense in any -
known medium. When we
finally met them in Winter
Park, Sloan was "Artist In
Residence" at Rollins -- and
teaching writing in classes
at his home, and Betty was
teaching dancing.
When their daughter,
Jessica, married a Virginian,
Sloan and Betty moved to
the Virginia Coast, where
my dear friend Sloan died
in 2003. What a loss to
Betty, to his friends, and to
the world of buoyant, col-
orful, creative minds.

Dear Louis, (6/22/08)
... Let me answer your
e-mail with your poem for
Joy right away. P've thought
about it constantly but I am
afraid to write. The poem is
beautiful and it hit me hard
- thinking about what Joy
must be going through.
From the first moment I
met Joy I felt we had a true
friendship and my love
and admiration has grown
deeper even though we are
out of touch ... except for ...
Play On! Flowers fade, but


my poems from Sloan will
last' forever, and I know Joy
feels the same way. I was
reading the Observer and
was amazed to see your let-
ter written to me. It shows
you understand my intimi-
dation about writing.
An author friend here
quoted, "If you say you can
write, you can. If you say
yo~u can't, you're right."
Yes, Sloan did have a good
voice and he wasn't afraid
or self-conscious when he
was alone and he could belt
out a tune. I remember ...
recounts of your times ...
at Harvard's Eliot House,
Louis. I remember both you
and Sloan talking about
it because of your deep
friendship.
P've read your letter to
me many times and have
started this letter many
times. F'm afraid to write,
P'm afraid to sing, but not
to dance. I listen to the
music, I want to move and
do what it tells me to do so
I get up and dance. I now
teach all partner danc-
ing, social, swing, tango,
Latin, ballroom, at Paragon
Dance Academy, part of the
Paragon Training Center
in Fredericksburg, Va.,
three nights a week, also at
Richmond Essex School of
Performing Arts in Warsaw


Va. one night. I work hard
to prepare, which I'm sure
you do.
What was Samoa like?
Meredith is a famous
championship dancer
who has a studio on Times
Square, and he was raised
in American Samoa. I do
have difficulty getting
people over the fear to take
ballroom lessons, espe-
cially men. Then I read your
poem to Joy in the next
issue of the Observer. 'm
glad it's out there. Thanks
for helping me love Opera.
Please give my love to
Joy.
Best love, Betty

Dear Betty,
Thank you for your .
delightful letter which
extends bonds between
us that have grown tenu-
ous through passing times.
I'm sure there are people
here who remember pretty -
Betty, and would like it if I
included a judicious smat-
tering of your own words
in a column. OK?
I never felt closer to any
man outside my Father
and my Uncle than I did to
Sloan. He had qualities that
can only be described as
loveable even by another
guy if another guy can
say such a thing ... I told


him once, "when you laugh.
the whole world shakes
with you!" Well, it takes an
artist to know one, they say.
We are so happy to
hear of your spreading
dance around your part
of Virginia! Lucky people
who can match strides
with Broadway Betty! You
say in body language what
Sloan said in words, and
I, in the ring of my voice.
Communication is the trick
... Some have got it, most
ain't. As the guy said, If you
write, you can write. Joy
continues to be la joie de
ma vie. She's in the home
stretch in her (so far)
eight-month race to out-
run Leukemia. Her hair's
gone for the 2nd time, but
the spirit never left, and
the hair will come back to
crown her smiling face.
I would of wrote the
story of my life different if
they had of asted me, but
they dint.'Bin waiting' for
the bang, but get only a
whimsey.
With Love, and Best!
