while many national
banks are sliding and
asking for help, Central
Florida's community banks
seem to have a firm grip on
the local market.
The $700 billion bailout
bill passed by Congress last
week will benefit, for the
most part, .larger banks.
The rescue allows the gov-
ernment to buy bad mort-
gage-related securities and
other assets from troubled
financial institutions in
the hopes of freeing up the
clogged credit market.
Three of Central Florida's
community banks say they
don't need help because
they didn't get involved
with toxic loans in the first
place.
"Community banks as
a whole have been able to
'stay away from the riskier
type of loans and as a result
haven't been affected," said
Isa Cusack, executive vice
president of Winter Park-
based First National Bank
of Central Florida.

John Calpey of First National Bank shows off the massive vault door at their Winter Park headquarters, something the bank calls
a symbol of its solid foundation. Local banks are weathering the financial storm relatively well due to a lack of risky mortgage loans.


merce National Bank, said
his firm has eluded the cri-
sis by sticking to the basics
and focusing on lending
in the community. "We're
not involved in the type of
lending that gave you high-
er yields or more risk," such
as sub-prime mortgages, he
said.


Even though local banks
aren't embroiled in the
credit crunch, they stand to
gain assets if the economy
improves as a result of the
bailout, said Sean Snaith,
director of the Institute for
Economic Competitiveness
at the University of Central
Florida.


Included in the bailout
measure is a temporary in-
crease in the amount of
money the FDIC insures,
from $100,000 to $250,000,
regardless of the size of the
bank.

Maitland has lost two devel-
opers and gained one.
Broad Street Partners
has stepped down as the
developer of Residences at
Ravinia, transferring du-
ties to Miami-based Bcom,
previously involved in the
project as a financing arm,
a Bcom spokesman said.
Last month, develop-
er Vincent Pellicane an-
nounced he would not build
the Trevi complex. The land
is on the market for nearly
$5 million.


Both Ravinia and Trevi
development agreements
remain intact, said Verl Em-
rick, director of Maitland's
Community Redevelop-
ment Agency. It's a matter
of the agreements being
"reassigned" to new devel-
opers.
Bcom officials met with
city staff last Monday to
announce that the firm is
moving forward with the
development of Ravinia.

Old Albertsons' fate revealed


ISAAC BABCOCK
C '-,E;:, !'F: STAFF

ith Winter Park's only Albertsons gro-
cery store now missing its signature
blue marquee, rumors have floated about
what's to come for the empty building dom-
inating the Winter Park Village's south end.
The grocery store's lease was taken over
by Florida-based Publix supermarkets, but
with stores already existing in Winter Park
and Maitland, talk of a new Publix "Green-
wise" quickly spread in the community.
Publix's Greenwise line of organic and
natural foods has grown popular enough
that entire stores have been built for the
healthy products in some areas. That's not
in the cards for Winter Park, at least not yet,
said Publix's spokeswoman, Maria Brous.


"We're still determining whether that will
turn into a Greenwise store," Brous said.
That's because the chain is already open-
ing one in Orlando, with plans to open
more in Florida, but a Winter Park store isn't
guaranteed.
In the mean time, expect to see the old
Albertsons reopening as a regular Publix
supermarket. The current Publix just south
of the intersection of Fairbanks and South
Orlando avenues will stay as it is.
Window signs already advertise the new
store as "coming soon," but Brous said that's
December at the earliest.
Renovation of the store is already under
way.
"If everything goes well the best-case sce-
nario is the store will open by the end of the
year," she said.

A scissor lift sits idle in front of the former Albertson's supermarket in the Winter Park
Village. The store, closed for more than a month, will be converted into a Publix.


DEVELOPMENT I Maitland's future shifts from Broad Street to Bcom


< continued from the front page
luxury condos and 45,000 square
feet of retail space, became unclear
in June after Broad Street developer
Steve Walsh died. A series of lawsuits
have since accused Walsh of stealing
millions of dollars from real-estate
partners.
While those lawsuits have halt-
ed many of Broad Street's projects,
Ravinia has a green light. "Each
of the projects, part of the Broad
Street spectrum, were standalone
projects," Emrick said. "And this one
is not involved in any of the litiga-
tion that might pop up."
Bcom President Denny St. Ro-
main said Broad Street is still in-


f evolved as a limited
partner. "What we've
done is step into the
role of the developer
and we are moving to
:. push the project for-
ward," he said.
Walsh Meanwhile, Trevi
doesn't have a buyer
yet, although there
are several interested parties, said
broker Dave Calcanis, Grubb and El-
lis Commercial Florida land group
vice president. As for the reason Pel-
licane threw in the towel: "I'm going
to say economic reasons," he said.
Pellicane had been unable to se-
cure financing for the project, not
unusual in this market.


Although the city doesn't have a
say in who ultimately takes over the
agreement, Emrick said it can point
developers in the right direction.
"We've suggested that Bcom talk to
them," he said.
St. Remain said Bcom is aware the
property is- for sale and has "made
an initial inquiry into that."
The Trevi complex is approved
to have 60,000 square feet of com-
mercial and retail space, about 60
condominiums and the city's new
fire station.
Pellicane assumed the devel-
opment agreement in 2005 after
buying the land from the original
developer, Dave Dalton. He then
scaled down the condo component


and added in the fire station, which
was readily approved by the City
Council.
Mayor Doug Kinson said the
Council will address changing the
location of the new fire station at a
workshop on Oct. 22.
While it may seem like a back
step for the city's vision for a new
downtown, this is the largest sign of
life it's seen this year.
Bcom hopes to break ground on
Ravinia within a year, St. Remain
said. "We're as anxious as anyone to
come out of the ground and have
something built at this site."

was probably overdue," Snaith said.
"It's been quite a few years since that
hundred thousand was established."
The insurance cap increase, set to
expire in December 2009, is geared
more toward small banks that fear
their customers individuals or small
businesses will abandon them for
bigger banks, which are considered
less likely to collapse.
"It may help to ease some deposi-
tors' fears," Snaith said. '
There may be intangible benefits
felt by community banks as well.
Maitland-based First Colony Bank
President Bruce May said people are
likely to change the way they bank
just as they are likely to think differ-
ently about investing in the real estate
market.
"As some of the ills come out about
the problems with larger banks, peo-
ple will be more careful, period, on
where they bank and do a little more
homework," he said, thus highlighting
the viability of community banks.
"We will be a very appealing alter-
native for someone to do business
with," he added.

Saints put up 5 TDs in win

Trinity Saints players had cause to celebrate in a dominating performance over local rivals from Orangewood Christian on Friday. The Saints put up 36 points
thanks in part to the work of offensive coordinator Mike Kruczek, who has coached at both UCF and for the Arizona Cardinals football team.


ISAAC BABCOCK
C Ri-EI STAFF

In a small school rivalry that's
heated up in recent years, Trinity
Prep has added another "W." They
sailed past Orangewood Christian
at home last Friday 36-10.
It was Austin Barton's huge 87-
yard touchdown run that put the
Saints on the scoreboard early,
and the Saints didn't look back.
Barton, Trinity's star running
back, who also plays the other
way on defense, added 219 yards
on the ground alone, picking up
three touchdowns in the process.
But he wasn't the only offen-
sive star on the night. Changes


portended by the addition of of-
fensive coordinator Mike Kruczek
paid off Friday in more ways than
jist big runs. A reinvigorated Trin-
ity passing game grabbed some of
the spotlight with quarterback J.J.
Wartski airing out two big passes
to add two more touchdowns.
A 76-yarder to receiver Jeff
Schirtzer would be Wartski's big-
gest of the night.
He would struggle on consisten-
cy, completing less than a third of
his attempted passes. He would
complete nearly 150 yards in
the air, but many of his attempts
fell incomplete. But his big plays
helped the Saints pull out of range
of Orangewood later in the game.


The Saints offense stayed con-
sistently punishing, racking up
five touchdowns in the game,
allowing Orangewood into the
end zone only once in the fourth
quarter, just as the Saints tapered
off. But by then it was too late for
Orangewood to catch up.
The blowout helped the Saints
to a 3-1 record so far this season.
They'll need- to keep their mo-
mentum up with Wildwood High
School coming to town. That
game starts at 7:30 p.m. Friday,
Oct. 10 at Trinity Prep.
Winter Park took a week off this
past week, and will return to the
gridiron at 7:30 p.m., also on Fri-
day, to host Colonial.

"Change Is Inevitable, But You Can

Manage It To Your Advantage."


BEV REPONEN
Volunteers helped spruce up a corner of the intersection of Highway 17-92 and
Horatio Avenue in Maitland on Saturday, Oct. 4. Among them were, at top from
left, City Arborist Brian Derks, Councilwoman Bev Reponen, Noel Del Cerna, Brad
Dunn, Linda Loperena, Briawith Rold and Bob Allen, who is also pictured above
with Ryan, a sales manager at Lowe's in Casselberry. That store donated to the
effort along with Gomez Construction Company, New Traditions Bank and Davey
Tree Company. Call 407-644-6321 to partake in future efforts.


As an experienced financial planner,
Elizabeth Brothers understands the
importance of anticipating change and
taking control wherever you can. That's
why she moved to The Mayflower. "In
financial planning, it's important to know
you have some control over medical costs,"
she says. "A continuing care retirement
community like The Mayflower enables you


to do that. But don't wait too long or
you won't be able to enjoy all the benefits
a CCRC has to offer."

options, take a look at The Mayflower.
It's a good plan for the future.

Greatest show on Earth


Families across Central
Florida waited with breath-
less anticipation for the
2008 Maitland Rotary's "Art
Under the Stars" festival
to come to Maitland. They
would not be disappointed,
as their wait would be met
with one of the greatest art
and music extravaganzas of
all time.
Every patron that came
to experience art and mu-
sic under the stars was met
with a slightly different ex-
perience. Some came dur-
ing the day and were met
with classical performers,
and some came during the
evening for a completely


different experience.
As I strolled the board-
walk late Saturday, my
breath was taken away as
the sun set to a colorful
and artistic sky, while twin-
kling lights throughout the
already-beautiful Lake Lily
began to emerge and illumi-
nate artists and their works
of art. Each artist's booth
was adorned with their own
unique style of lighting,
which perfectly illuminated
their masterpieces.
I met and spoke, with
many artists during .the
weekend; many had pre-
viously attended, but had
heard this show would be

This weekend was unique
in many ways. It was more
exclusive, attracting the
cream of the crop of artists
throughout the country. It
was the first time ever that
any fine art festival had
been held at night, and for
the first time, classical mu-
sic was an integral part of
the experience.
So many people worked
so hard to put this event to-
gether, but there are a few

JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

"A really strong woman
accepts the war she went
through and is ennobled
by her scars."
Singer Carly Simon

at Fieler, wearing a T-shirt
emblazoned in pink with "I
fight like a girl: breast can-
cer survivor," clicked onJo Dee Mes-
sina's ballad "Bring on the rain" and
began to lead a group of breast can-
cer survivors in seated exercises.
Lyrics of "Tomorrow's another
day/ And I'm thirsty anyway/ So
bring on the rain" told the story of
a woman overcoming hard times,
leaving some in the intimate dance
studio emotional.
The women, all of them wearing
at least one article of bright-pink
clothing, gracefully moved to the
music, stretching areas of their bod-
ies that have endured surgery or
surgeries and are plagued with
scar tissue and nerve and muscle
damage.
Abbi Laney, donning a pink cap
over her bald head, grasped the back
of her chair and extended her right
leg. She has had three lymph nodes
removed from under her arm.
"My doctor asked me if I had
been stretching and I said no," she
said. "I had an almost-frozen shoul-
der." Since beginning the weekly
class, she has' regained some range



Breast cancer recovery classes are held
4-5 p.m. Sunday at The Zebra Room, a
private studio in Orlando-at 2609 Gowen
St. Classes are free but space is limited;

more information.


Instructor Kat Fieler, in black, offers breast cancer survivors physical therapy classes to help them cope with injury and physical stress after cancer treatments.


of motion.
The instructor, Fieler, a certified
fitness instructor and four-year
breast cancer survivor, also offers
relaxation techniques and support
during her free classes.
The 12 women signed up are
in different stages of their battle
with cancer. Some are just begin-
ning chemotherapy, some have had
surgeries, some are awaiting more
surgery, and others have been can-
cer-free for years. Each woman has
been.assessed by Fieler and placed
in a corresponding level to make
sure they are not performing exer-


cises beyond what is beneficial.
Many doctors discourage breast
cancer patients from exercising,
Fieler said, because of the risks as-
sociated with it;
During chemo, a woman's im-
mune system is weakened and she
may lose her hair and gain weight,
making gym visits unhealthy and
often emotionally difficult. "A per-
sonal trainer is focused on body
sculpting, not on healing," Fieler
said.
Classmate Linda Schulte is a
four-year survivor and co-founder
of the Orlando group of the Young


Survival Coalition, made up of the
5 percent of women who are diag-
nosed with breast cancer before
their 40th birthday.
"I wish I had known more,"
Schulte said, referring to early-de-
tection education.
Fieler also seeks to educate other
women about breast cancer issues
and hopes her class will help wom-
en commit to a lifetime of exercise.
"Life is finite," she said. "I had
cancer and beat it, but that's not the
only thing that is threatening."


Honoring two from 'Greatest Generation'


BETTY SAMPLE
MAITLAND Hi :.T'RFli:j'I SOCIETY

The Maitland Historical Society will
honor two members of "The Great-
est Generation" at their Tenth An-
nual Benefit Auction on Oct. 10 at
the Sheraton Orlando North Hotel.
The sold-out event will pay tribute
to Charles and Joan Clayton, two
of our own who have undauntedly
pursued and achieved their Ameri-
can Dream.

Charles Clayton was nearly 10
when the Great Depression be-
gan. He worked in a grocery after
school and on Saturdays until he
graduated from high school in his
hometown of Live Oak, Fla., in 1939


and left to pursue higher educa-
tion at the University of Florida. He
joined the U.S. Army after he gradu-
ated in 1943, and flew more than
80 missions during the European
Campaign that included participa-


tion in the Battle of the Bulge and
engagements across Holland and
Germany. Charles Clayton opened
his first real estate office, in partner-
ship with his cousin Malcolm Clay-
ton, in a store basement in Orlando
in 1947. But when they realized the
severity of the housing shortage
caused by the return of servicemen
after World War II, Clayton Realty
added building houses to their busi-
ness of selling houses. Develop-


ing subdivisions such as Hollianna
Shores, Dommerich Estates, English
Estates, and Dommerich Hills, they
had built more than 5,000 homes
by the end of the 20th century.

Joan Bennett Clayton was born dur-
ing the Great Depression and came
to Central Florida to be raised by
her grandparents when she was

very young. She attended
Lyman School before her
grandparents moved into
Maitland. Joan says some
of her fondest memories
are riding a bicycle to the
Maitland Library to check
out books recommended
to her by librarian Stella
Waterhouse, and attending
services at Maitland's First
Presbyterian Church. She
graduated from Winter Park
High School. She took class-
es at Florida Southern, was


employed at several com-
panies doing office work,
and transferred to Rollins
College. Joan and Charles
Clayton were married on
the Rollins College Campus
in 1957 just a few hours af-
ter her college graduation
ceremony took place.
As they proudly raised
their four children Charles
III, Clay, Cole and Elizabeth
Hope the Claytons were
active throughout their
community. Active in civic
clubs, the University Club
and Phi MU Sorority, Joan


wrote "Peas in a Pod," "Unto
You," and "Letters" as well as
articles and columns for lo-
cal newspapers such as the
Central Florida Sun. She still
teaches a Bible Class and is
on the board of the Winter
Park Library.
Charles served on vari-
ous civic councils and par-
ticipated in the business
planning of the area. He was
instrumental in the expan-
sion of local utilities, and
he took part in the devel-
opment of several schools,
parks and churches includ-


ing Dommerich Elementary
School, Asbury Methodist
Church, Maitland Baptist
Church and the University
of Central Florida. He was
a founding director of Co-
lonial State Bank. A motiva-
tor, he has authored "Eye-
robics," "Skin Exercise,"
and "Diet by Design." They
both humbly credit their
Christian faith, their love of
country, and their faith in
their fellow Americans with
the strength that has carried
them through the adversi-
ties of life.


Please join the Maitland
Historical Society in salut-
ing these two inspirational
people who continue to see
problems as challenges and
look for solutions.
As we enter uncertain
times in this new century,
we can cling to out own
American dreams as we look
"to the- examples given us
by the cheerful, optimistic
spirits and generous hearts
of Charles andJoan Clayton,
who have done so much for
this community.

Day-trip destination: Cypress Gardens

OBSERVER STAFF

It was an amazing era a time
when Ginger Rogers and Fred
Astaire danced across the silver
screen into the hearts of America,
Margaret Mitchell's romantic novel
"Gone with the Wind" had just been
published, and Cypress Gardens
emerged as Florida's first amuse-
ment park.
Park guests can sense this rich
history as they meander through
acres of exquisite botanical gardens
today. While people struggled to re-
cover from an economic depression
in the 1930s and international ten-
sions mounted, Cypress Gardens of-
fered a respite from daily pressures
with flourishing landscapes and se-
rene boat rides.
The same can be said
today, with its lush botani-
cal gardens, topiaries and
plantation gardens, more
than 40 rides including six
roller coasters, and engag-
ing water-ski shows. The park
Cypress Gardens was Friday,
founded by Dick and Ju- and Su

While the park has expanded
and modernized throughout the
years, Cypress Gardens has not lost
its old-fashioned appeal.
Park guests peacefully stroll
along the historic gardens, almost
lost in the beauty of the abundant
native and exotic plantings and the
canopy provided by the enormous
banyan tree, planted in 1939 from
a seedling. An herb garden, rose
garden and butterfly garden com-
pliment the manicured landscape

The impressive collection of to-

Boasting of Florida's oldest roller coaster, Cypress Gardens contrasts natural beauty with mechanical thrills
in a flowery; lush Winter Haven theme park. It also boasts of a water park with a massive wave.pool.


17 miles of the surrounding area.
Cypress Gardens is the home of
Florida's first wooden roller coast-
er, rescued in 2004 when Panama
City's Miracle Strip Amusement
Park closed. Known as the Starlin-
er, the old-fashioned sound of the
clackity-clack is followed by gleeful
screams as riders face hairpin turns
and plunge nearly 70 feet, reach-
ing speeds up to 70 miles per hour.
Traditional bumper cars, a merry-
go-round and an enormous Ferris
wheel add to the vintage amuse-
ment park appeal.
When the weather proves too,
hot, visitors often turn to Splash Is-
land Park, the new interactive wa-
ter play area filled with tremendous
slides, a 20,000-square-foot wave
pool and a relaxing lazy river. Peo-
ple looking for a refreshing thrill
can take a ride on the Tonga Tubes,
a twin tube-slide consisting of four
stories of twisting and turning with
a cool pool at the bottom.
The Cypress Garden Water Ski
Show on Lake Eloise,. which dates
back to 1941, gives visitors a sneak


peek at the daring barefoot skiing,
lifts, tandem jumps and water ski
pyramid that made the park fa-
mous decades ago. The sense of his-
tory and tradition is evident as wa-
ter skiers proudly perform using the
original stage.
Cypress Gardens also hosts per-
formers at the Star Haven Amphi-
theater throughout the year for
all-star concerts, including coun-
try singer Billy Currington and the
music of The Drifters in upcoming
weeks.
. Haley Kish, public relations
manager at Cypress Gardens, said,
"Preserving Cypress Gardens is im-
portant because it is Florida's first
theme park. We are different and
unique in the fact that we can offer
this historical point."
"Families come back to Cypress
Gardens because it is a great value
and tons of fun," Kish added. "One
can visit the historical gardens and
ski show in the morning then ride
roller coasters and see exotic ani-
mals in the afternoon."

Pit-bulls and Lipstick


Boy, did I have it wrong!
And I apologize! Sarah Pa-
lin can actually chew gum
and walk, rather, talk at the
same time. Egg on my face,
huh? No, seriously Sarah Pa-
lin showed she could cram
for a test and regurgitate on
demand. And that's crucial
when you're VP and you
have to uh, um, ur, hmmm,
cram for a test and regurgi-
tate.
And now the gloves
come off! John McCain's
campaign says it is no more
Mr. Nice Guy! No way! He's
going to let Barack Obama
know what's what and
point out to "real" Ameri-
cans exactly what kind of
candidate Obama is for as-
sociating with known thugs
and ne'er-do-well's. And
Sarah "The Pit bull" Palin is
just the gal for that truth-
tellin' job!
Let's recount the ques-
tionable associations, and I
recommend that everyone
who is computer literate
(sorry, John) Google these
issues and extensively re-
search them for yourself.
You have Reverend Wright.
Let's not forget William Ay-
ers. And, of course, Tony
Rezko.
It seems Reverend
Wright, Obama's former
longtime minister, went
majorly overboard in his


condemnation of America
based on his personal ex-
perience as a black man
- actual observations and
the written factual history
of slavery, Jim Crow and
racism in America. Bad,
bad Reverend Wright, for
showing anger and frustra-
tion regarding America's
long history of racial vio-
lence and intimidation of
its black citizens. How
dare you, Reverend Wright,
for having the temerity
in a predominantly black
church to speak of injus-
tice. Such cheek!
But then you have the
Republican vice presi-
dential nominee's church
where ministers actually
lay on the hands and utter
the words over Sister Palin
that she not be plagued by
witches and other super-
natural, ungodly demons.
She was running at the
time (Oct. 16, 2005) to be
Alaska's governor. Hey! It's
a frontier up there! Witches
in the wild woods of Amer-
ica's West! But, of course,
a black minister speaking
of injustice in America is
patently unacceptable, yet
evoking a witch doctor in
the VP's church is perfectly
OK. Republican values,
don't-cha see?
William Ayers. When Wil-
liam Ayers was advocating


violent protests during the
Vietnam War, Obama was
all of 8 years old. Years later
in Chicago, Ayers had reha-
bilitated himself such that
he served on community
boards with Obama. Ayers
gave Obama $200 for one of
his campaigns. That's about
it, kids. Google the issue.
Any substantive reading on
the subject and you'll see
the issue for what it is a
distraction from the failed
Republican (Bush/McCain)
policies (Iraq/economic).
And finally, Tony Rezko.
Google the following:
www.suntimes.com/news/
politics/124171 ,CST-NWS-
obama05.article. It pres-
ents an assessment of the
subject as well as an actual
Q&A interview with Obama
over the issue and their
(Rezko/Obama) relation-
ship.
But if John McCain is
going to bring up Rezko,
let's review John McCain's
involvement in the Keating
Five Scandal of the 1990s.
When McCain speaks of all
his experience, he must be
speaking of his firsthand
experience of being cen-
sured by the Senate Com-
mittee on Ethics for "poor
judgment." A corrupt Ari-
zona constituent Keat-
ing, who was eventually
jailed in his close rela-


tionship with Sen. McCain
causes the senator to be
investigated for unethical
behavior and to be cen-.
sured in August 1991 with a
"poor judgment" call. Poor
judgment! Poor judgment
on Iraq! Poor judgment on
the economy recall: the
fundamentals are strong! A
history of poor judgment.
That's John McCain.
And we won't even go
into John McCain dumping
his wounded wife, Carol,
for the Budweiser beer heir-
ess Cindy Lou Hensley in
1980. He was 43; Cindy Lou
was 25. This is what Cindy
McCain said on the Jay
Leno "Tonight Show." She
joked about how the Navy
captain pursued her. "He
kind of chased me around
... the hors d'oeuvre table,"
she said. "I was trying to
get something to eat and I
thought, 'This guy's kind of
weird.' I was kind of trying
to get away from him."
Isn't that fun? Ha! Ha!
Say it over and over with
a Julia Child accent. "He
chased me around the hours
d'oeuvre table." It gets a
lot funnier. Think a high-
pitched Julia exclaiming,
"He chased me around the
hors d'oeuvre table." More
nasal. Good thing John Mc-
Cain was single at the time!
What? He wasn't? Oh well,


we won't go into that. Will
we?
So, the American econ-
omy is in a veritable melt-
down. We're spending $10
billion a month in Iraq and
the John McCain for presi-
dent campaign is going to
unleash the dogs of politi-
cal war by having Sarah Pa-
lin go negative on Barack
Obama. I am reminded of
that famous Marsellus Wal-
lace quote from the movie
"Pulp Fiction": "I'ma get
medieval on your [exple-
tive]!" That is what we
want from Sarah Palin? To.
get "medieval" on Barack
Obama?
Remember when lipstick
on a pig was all the news,
the rage? Update: lipstick
on a pit bull might be the
more appropriate analogy.
Hey, "they" do willingly
embrace the barracuda im-
age! What shade, then, does
the barracuda hockey mom
wear?
Is a barracuda a bottom
feeder? We're finding out.*,

Free pass for rail is foolish


As many of you are aware, there
have been questions raised by
some recently over the request by
Winter Park Commissioner Beth
Dillaha to review the contract be-
tween Orange County and the city
of Winter Park regarding the. com-
muter rail stop in Central Park.
I believe that sound fiscal deci-
sions are the primary responsibil-
ity of all elected officials. Irrespec-
tive of ideologies, the underlying
financial soundness of our city is
Job One for our Commission.
As a city, we find ourselves in
uncertain financial times. Faced
with decreasing housing values,
we no longer have the same tax
revenues to allow us to conduct
our business as usual. The sub-
prime mortgage crisis, the failure
of major banks, escalating un-
employment, volatile gas prices
and Amendment One all affect
the business of the city. The times


have changed and our decisions
are impacted by those changes.
As your elected officials, this
Commission must make very
difficult decisions to ensure the
continued financial stability and
viability of Winter Park. These
decisions will not be universally
popular, but they must be made
without personal or political pur-
pose. We cannot hide our collec-
tive heads in the sand and hope
that all of this will simply blow
over. We must meet this situation
head on and make sure that our
financial house remains in good
order.
It is imperative that we ask the
tough questions and review all of
the long-term financial obliga-
tions of the city. It should not be
considered treasonous to

I need your support to
continue to take the lead
in seeking sound solutions
and backing measures that
keep our environment
clean, protected, and safe
for you and future
generations of Floridians.

Conservative
Cultural Commentary
By Louis Roney
Distinguished Professor Emeritus, UCF
2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award
Assisted by beloved wife Joy Roney

THIS or THAT?

One should have
some sympathy for
the person, I guess.
But all I can feel for him is
ennui-tainted ho-hum ...
The guy I'm talking about
had long been out of work
and had finally landed a
job. When he came home
after the first day, he told
his wife he couldn't stand
htie job, and had quit. She
was stunned, and asked,
"What did they give you to
do? "
"They sat me in a chair
at the end of a long convey-
or belt that was bringing
oranges to me all day."
"And...?" said his wife.
"I had to put the- big
oranges in a basket on my
left, and small ones in a
basket on my right," he
said.
"That doesn't sound so
difficult."
"It wasn't," he said.
"Then what was it you
couldn't stand?"
"The decisions, he said.
"It was those constant deci-
sions."


Most of the people to
whom most people pay the
most money are the people
who make most of their big
decisions for them.
A good doctor would
rarely, if ever, let a patient
make a vital decision.
A good stockbroker calls
a client and tells him to buy
or sell 500 shares of XYZ.
Do you pay medi-
cal or financial advisers
good money to throw
decision-seeking ques-
tions back at you? What
if your doctor were to ask
you this: "Lance, old scout,
based on the X-rays and
that blood test with the
Shafly-Steinem hemoglo-
bin factor, do you think
we should operate on you
at 6 on Friday, or rely on
a more guarded systemic
approach? I'll be resting in
" Nurse Lamour's room while
you decide." Then he adds,
"By the way, while you're
deciding how I should pro-
ceed, be a nice lad and lay 5
bills on the receptionist."
You gonna let that saw-
bones reach for a scalpel
while you're lying prone
under a sheet, pondering
your own prognosis?
Imagine that your bro-
ker, Boris Downer, emerges
from hiding following
some bad days on the Dow,
and phones you from Merry
Mensch Co, and says, "Say,
Dottie, I'm sorry to bother
you while I know you're up
to your neck at Topless Pest
Control, but I'm wondering
what you think of Retro-
Dyne Double-knits on the
Amex? ..."
"Why do you ask, Boris?"
says Dottie.
"Well, I just thought if
you know the stock's fun-
damentals, we could buy
some, or sell some short,
depending on what you
project for next-quarter


earnings. Of course, you'll
have to tell me how many
shares you're thinking
about, and whether you
want to use a market or
limit order. Call me before
the market closes... OK?"
Come on, Dottie! You
gonna deal with that
schmuck? Marry him if he's
rich and he's good to his
mother and maybe you
love him. But be sure he
proposes twice so you're
certain that for once in his
life he's made a decision!
Perhaps the worst char-
acteristic a naval officer
aboard ship can be guilty of
is indecision. In Navy mid-
shipman-school in World
War II, I was taught to have
a whole menu of decisions
ready in my mind before
any possible emergency
situation arose. This knee-
jerk pre-emptive reactions
to danger were called by
the Navy "fore-handed-
ness." (Such training stands
one in good stead in many
other areas of life, not the
least of which is in driving
a car.) While some vacillat-
ing officer is trying to figure
out what action to take, a
capital ship with all aboard
can be destroyed in the
twinkling of an eye by an
-enemy who makes up his
mind to attack.
In 1890, the great
Harvard College philoso-
pher, William James, wrote,
"There is no more miser-
able human being than one
in whom nothing is habitu-
al, but indecision."
I might take issue with
William James in that a res-
olute person who is bound
by marriage to such a
shilly-shallyer is even more
miserable than his weak-
willed mate, for he has
condemned himself to be
a dissatisfied, earthbound
bird who can no longer


soar because one wing is
eternally bound to his side.
A Turkish proverb warns
in a poetic caveat that inde-
cision can cost you your
soul: "He became an infidel
while hesitating between
two mosques."
The renowned English
poet William Wordsworth
believed that his life's pur-
pose was preordained. He
wrote, "I made no vows, but
vows were made for me."
Lots of other people who
know the feeling of having
a preordained "calling" on
Earth may feel that their
lives' primary decisions
were somehow already
made.
Robert Frost, the crotch-
ety New England poet who
died shortly after he recited
one of his poems at John
F. Kennedy's inauguration,
was never able to think in
such comforting terms.
Frost was tortured by bitter
curiosity as to the decisions
he had made in his art and
in his personal life.
He wrote in "The Road
Not Taken,"
"Two roads diverged in a
wood, and I -
I took the one less trav-
eled by,
And that has made all
the difference."
To the end of his days,
Frost, whom I knew slightly
when he was living in our
House at Harvard, won-
dered what his life would
have been had he taken the
other turn at that unidenti-
fied, but decisive, fork in his
life's road.
In the years when I
lived in Munich and sang
in German opera compa-
nies, I could never drive
through the beautiful Platz
where the Amerika Haus
stands without conjuring
up visions of what took
place in that handsome


building the last couple
of days in September
of 1938. The very word
"Munich" has become syn-
onymous with "appease-
ment." And the name of
British Prime Minister
Neville Chamberlain has
come to symbolize the
fatal weakness of indeci-
siveness. Hitler was bul-
lying and determined on
his evil course. However,
most historians now agree
that a firm decision by
Chamberlain to stop the
German dictator then and
there would have worked.
. If Winston Churchill,
a man co'decision, had
been Prime Minister then,
as he was later when
Chamberlain stepped
down, many believe that
Hitler, a notorious bluffer,
would have met more
than his match. World War
II might well have been
averted by one inan's deci-
siveness.
In being decisive, we all
make mistakes. We hope
our mistakes are small
ones, and are rectifiable.
Most of them usually are.
.But being indecisive
guarantees failure, failure
compounded by a brand
of mental cowardice that
comes from not "facing an
issue." How often do you
wish to "eat out" with your
Aunt Tilly, the one who
reads the menu for a quar-
ter-hour, calls the waiter
to the table three times
for questioning, and then
orders a plain omelet and a
salad?
I have always respected
Billy Graham, whose
approach is based upon a
"decision" each must make
for himself.
I'll buy that!


FALLEN APPLES NOT FAR FROM MY TREE #70


On Sunday mornings, on bound up with the future
AM radio, I often stumble economic and financial
across the ponderous locu- picture in U.S. life.
tion of an old curmudgeon This morning, Pat R.
named Pat R---- ... His lugu- shared my coffee time
brious voice brings predic- with his forecast of a most
tions that frightening view straight
are ahead. Hle overtly opines
t lhat Irael will very soon
ai lack Iran's nuclear
ca pabilities,.and that,
when Iran retali-
ates, the U.S. will
jump into the
fray with both
feet. Syria would
then join Iran,
as would ulti-
mately Russia,
and then, China.
All these nice
things would
begin within a
month or so, most
Ii kely before George
\. ik back in Crawford.
ITh-c-e ominous things
co 'uld, in my opin-
ijn. Ibe possibly in the
\\ ings. I hope not. But,
the makings
have been there
x 'E ~and have been


known to cogniscenti for
a long while. (By the way,
Pat R's favorite among the
present bunch is Sarah
Palin, whom he admires
and trusts greatly.)

Few of us who voted twice
for George W. see him as
a genius, and we are con-
scious of his close-mouthed
style in keeping his inner-
most thoughts arcane. That
he may choose to go out
with a "bang" instead of a
"whimper" is surely pos-
sible.

"[John McCain] has to fuse
the issues of the economy
and taxes to show how
Barack Obama's tax pro-
posals would lead to a cata-
strophic implosion of the
nation's capital base.
... In a strong economy,
Obama's tax hikes would
raise questions. In a weak
economy, they portend
a catastrophe." Dick
Morris

Interesting that Obama


and his many henchmen
are now all over the TV say-
ing that he is not against
handguns.

"The ultimate result of
shielding men from the
effects of folly is to fill the
world with fools."
Herbert Spencer

Obama has reportedly
received many millions of
dollars in campaign gifts,
many from the Mideast.
Do people give that kind
of money without ever
expecting anything in
return?

Obama clearly has "another
life" about which we know
very little. The Reverend
Wright, William Ayers, and
Syrian-born Tony Rezko
(convicted of fraud and
bribery) are among those
who shared a former life in
Chicago with Obama.

Forty years ago my b.w.
and I both banked at
Chase in New York City.


Coincidentally, now Chase
has come to us in our
neighborhood replacing
WaMu. We're back where
we started.

No one, in truth, can
rejoice at seeing the bail-
ing out by the government
of inefficient or dishonest
private business. U.S. tax
dollars are now working in
a Marxist aura.

Sen. Chris Dodd (D-Conn.)
says we are seeing "a melt-
down of the American
monetary system."'We
would wager that we'll
recover what has been lost.

ask the tough questions, as some
have alluded. Rather, it should be
considered the ultimate foolish-
ness not to ask those questions.
Given today's uncertain economic
climate, a failure to review our
potential obligations is both fool-
hardy and fiscally irresponsible.
Family expenses are now being
reviewed closely in households
across America. Why would some
imply our city leaders should be
less diligent? Personal agendas
should not trump sound manage-
ment policy.
It is for these reasons that I sup-
port a review of our commuter
rail agreements. There are very
important questions that need
to be asked and answered about
our commitment. That commit-
ment must be able to withstand
the scrutiny that Commissioner
Dillaha has called for. Our citizens
deserve to know what they are
obligating their tax dollars for, in
specifics, not vague generalities.
As it stands now, some of our
financial responsibilities for com-


muter rail include a 99-year fi-
nancial obligation, one without
any "caps" or "limitations." In
other words, we have no protec-
tion from future escalating costs,
yet Orange County has protected
itself by inserting such caps.into
its agreement. Winter Park citi-
zens, however, will always be on
the hook for the operating and
maintenance costs of running the
system. In addition, Winter Park
citizens will be sending their tax
dollars to Orange County to pay
for commuterrail and will also be
spending their Winter Park taxes
to pay for it, as well.
This amounts to double taxa-
tion. These and other questions
are worthy of discussion.
Reviewing these agreements
is not an issue of being "for or
against" commuter rail as one pos-
sible regional solution for Central
Florida transportation problems.
This is an issue of fiscal respon-
sibility for the citizens of Winter
Park.
