On the last weekend of ear-
ly voting, the national newS
trucks descended on Winter
Park's Library hoping for a
glimpse of electoral chaos
in the Sunshine State. The
polling line nearly lapped
the building, flanking a field
of hundreds of signs shad-
ing roadside greenery.

Runway will grace Park Avenue


The second annual Park Avenue
Fashion Week will once again grace
Winter Park from Saturday, Nov. 8
through Thursday, Nov. 13.
Melixa Carbonell, the creative di-
rector of Park Avenue Fashion Week
and co-owner of Shou'Ture, a shoe
boutique located on Park Avenue,
said this year's fashion~ week is ex-
pected to be much larger than last
year's event.
"Last year wasn't so big because
we wanted to see what kind of re-
sponse we would get from the com-
munity," Carbonell said. "But this
year we're able to do what we've al-
ways dreamed of doing."
The budget for this year's fashion
week has tripled the amount of last
year's budget, she said. Last year's
fashion week sold more than 300
tickets. Carbonell said she is expect-
ing to sell more than 700 this year.
Altogether, Carbonell said the event
would cost more than $70,000,
which is funded through ticket sales
and sponsorships.
The main fashion events will be
held at 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 8 at
the Central Park West Meadow. All
runways will be under large tents
this year to mimic larger fashion
shows such as the Mercedes-Benz
Fashion Week in New York. George
Strickland, a local resident who's
known for providing tents for the
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, will
also be providing the tent city for
this event.
"He's very excited to see this cali-
ber of event in his own backyard,"
Carbonell said. "And we're happy to
have him."
Inside the event, Carbonell said,
will be a grand lobby with a DJ and
LCD screens provided by Pro Video
Solutions. There will also be a sepa-
rate VIP room for people who pur-
chased "platinum VIP" or VIP passes
for $8100-$200. General admission

A model strikes a pose at last year's Fashion Week event as guests look on. Tents like those used at New York shows will enclose this year's runways.


Avenue Fashion Week's emerging
local designers contest.
"It's been a lot of fun so far and
great opportunity," Cancel said.
"I'm just going to take this and run
with it."
Park Avenue Fashion Week will
host 15 runway shows in the park
and a variety of trunk shows held
at the individual boutiques on Park
Avenue and in Hannibal Square.
"This is going to be the biggest
fashion event in the Central Florida
area," Carbonell said. "This is our
opportunity to showcase the fact
that Winter Park is very fashion-
forward."


tickets for the event are $45.
A variety of local designers will be
showcased at this event. Jenn Fen-
ton, a jewelry designer who sells her
products exclusively out of Iuini's, a
clothing boutique on Park Avenue,
said she is excited to be a part of the
event for the first time.
"I always wanted to be involved.
It's in my hometown," Fenton said.
"It's great to be a part of the hype. It
gets bigger and better each year it's
done."
Fenton's jelivelrywill be displayed
on the 30 models who will walk the
runway on Saturday.
"My goal is to see accessories
showcased by themselves," Fenton


said. "It would be great to show ac-
cessories like jewelry on a separate
runway of their own."
Another local designer, Luby Can-
cel, will also be apart of this year's
fashion week for the first time.
"It's really overwhelming that
this is all happeningg" Cancel said. "I
never expected to be a part of this."
Cancel will be showcasing her
own line of hand-painted high-
heel shoes, which are sold through
Shoe'Ture.
Cancel said her designs are one
of a kind and no two shoes are alike.
She recently participated in a fash-
ion show hosted by the Mall at Mil-
lenia before applying for the Park

"I've sold a dozen cases of water so far,"
she said. "And I'm almost out again."
Just a ~few feet away the cameras and
studio lights turn on Samantha Teran's
face and a roadside interview goes nation-
wide.
The 21-year-old Rollins College student
became a spur-of-the-moment volunteer
for John McCain when she sa-iv somebody
holding a sign on the sidewalk.
"When I came home from school, I saw
a lady holding a sign and thought 'I should
do that,"' she said. And then she did.
Returning to the side of East New Eng-
land Avenue, she stood there, McCain sign
in one hand, phone in the other, bragging
to a friend about her moment in the spot-
light.
She didn't know how long she would
be able to stay to drum up support for the
presidential candidate. But now she seems
energized.
On the eive of history, she couldn't wait
to wait longer.
"I'll probably be here until dark nowi"
she said, with about five hours to go until
sunset.

outside the city's only early voting poll-

terprise tapping into the record crowd of
early voters.
"Ever since they announced it'd be open
7 to 7," she said, referring to a governor's
order to extend voting hours, "the line has
been around the corner."
For an election some voting gurus had
pegged as potential chaos, things looked
remarkably orderly. Maybe being at the li-
brai-y helps, Waldrich mused.
"Everybody expects you're supposed to
be quiet, proper here," Waldrich said.
Every once in a while somebody stops
to pick up a handful of snacks and some
hot apple cider made just in time for the
first cold snap of the fall.
She dutifully entertains guests in be-
tween drags from a cigarette as she sits al-
most purposefully distant from the line of
voters, but with teeth always hinting at a
smile.

It came down to a nail-biter
finish between the Winter
Park and Evans high school
fo ball tembut fo th
firs time ami season the
Wildcats were the victors
in a one-point game. They
won 15-14 Friday, but only
after a bizarre and daring
two-point conversion made
them the would-be victors.
Until that triumphant
moment, the Wildcats were
in the thick of things with
the Trojans, as the teams
* traded scores and leads on
the field
The offensively resurgent
Wildcats once again relied
on runmin back Zee Ware
to provide the firepower to
get them into the end zone,
handing him the ball at the
2-yard line to burst through
to the goal to open the scor- ~
ing=
The Wildcats would hold
that 7-0 lead through the
end of the first quarter.
The Trojans fought back
quickly though, with star
running back Doug Roache
dusting off the Wildcats
with an 88-yard run in the
second quarter.
But then the Trojans de~
cided to make things in-
teresting, opting for a two-
point conversion so early
in the game. They pulled it
off, taking a narrow 8-7 lead
headitig into halftime.
When the Wildcats came
back, they returned with a
vengeance, with Ware again
capping off a long Wildcat
,drive with a 27-yard run


into the end zone.
That's when the Cats de-
cided to go for broke with
an unusual two-point con~
version of their own. Wide
receiver Sam Richardson
found himself in the strange
position of passer when the
ball was snapped, but he
found linebacker Bryce Mc-
Clanahan on the other end
of a short pass to put .the
Cats into the end zone.
The risky plaiy put the
Cats on top 15-8.
Defense kept the score
stagnant for most of the re-
mainder of the game until
Evans running back Darrius
James broke free for a 45-
yard run to bring the score
to 15-14.
The Trojans took the saf-
er route with a kick attempt
to tie the game, but the kick
missed, and the Cats had
their narrowest victory of
the season,
Thie Cats return a final
time for their liome game
against district rival- Edge-
water at 7:30 -p.m.~ Friday.
The -Eagles and Wildcats
have identical 4-4 overall
and 3-1 district records.
Whoever wins the game will
be district runner-up.
Whoever loses won't
have a second chance to
make it to the playoffs.

Warner claimed that eliminating cor-
porate contributions would favor incum-
bents by giving challengers less avenues to
seek campaign funding, adding that ifvot-
ers had been troubled by corporate dona-
tions, they would have complained more
vocally.
"People weren't rallying in the streets,"
he said.
WXhile Warner led the charge to derail
talk of making big changes in campaign
ethics reform, the remainder of the board
followed suit in saying the board is not, or
should not, be powerful enough to make
the city government write its recommen-

"I don't like corporations buying elec-

able to give any more clout than you do or I
do. That's where the problems come from,
not just here in little Winter Park, but na-
tionwide."
He called attention to more than a doz-
en locally owned corporations that had
only on~e or two owners, but were allowed
to donate money to political campaigns.
That allowed those owners of multiple
corporations to donate thousands of dol-

citizens were only allowed a maximum of

was "wishful thinking" to think the board
could stop corporate donations in city

"If we recommend that there will be no
corporate donations allowed, there's no
way it'll pass," board member Thadeus Sey-

storm-water system is func-
tioning properly, but also to
retrofit existing storm lines
with devices that are capa-
ble of treating storm water
before it enters into one of
- our city's most important
assets, its lakes.
As part of our retrofit
program, we have recently
completed the installation
of a CDS, or continuous de-
flective separator, unit on
Audubon Way to treat storm
water flowing into the west-
ern portion of Lake Sybelia.
This underground structure
uses filters and a little bit of
physics to remove trash and
other solid debris such as
dirt and sand before it has
the opportunity to be dis-
Charged into the lake.
A total of 74 acres com-
posed of residential prop-
erty, commercial property
and roadways from inside
and outside of the city drain
into this one outfall. The city
has four other such filters
located on Sybelia Parkway,
Lake Sybelia Drive and Mait-
land Avenue. These units are
capable of removing more
than 70 yards of debris an-


nually! Not only do they trap
unsightly garbage, but they
also benefit our lake's ben-
thic ecosystems by trapping
sand and silt that would
harm submerged vegeta-
tion and underwater insects
called macroinvertebrates.
The Stormwater and
Lakes Management Division
is looking forward to the
benefits that this storm-wa-
ter retrofit will provide and
has plans for many more
similar projects through-
out the city. We are already
in the process of initiating a
plan to install underground
retention and ex-filtration
units in the Ridgewood
neighborhood to improve
drainage and treat storm
water for nutrients and de-
bris before it enters Lake
Maitland. During the next
five years, we have a total of
13 projects scheduled rang- .
ing from retention ponds
and swales to cooperative
efforts with our neighbors
intended to assist in treat-
ing drainage from beyond
our boundaries. If you have
any questions regarding
these projects or would like


During the past few years,
Maitland's City Council has
taken a proactive approach
to lakes management. The
Stormwater and Lakes Man-
agement Plan provides a
framework for future im-
provements to protect our

the Plan will be provided in
the form of a storm water
utility. However, the plans
and funding are nothing
without experienced per-
sonnel to implement our
lakes vision. Many thanks

When Bill Orr was
a boy, a Maitland
artist colony was
his playground and would
become his inspiration.
So it is only fitting that
the artist's first solo show~
be where it all started: the
groundS of today's Mait-
land Art Center. His exhi-
bi~tion, "Moments of Light,
Water and Air," opens 6:30
p.m. Friday, Nov. 7, and runs
through Dec. 21.
The Art Center was previ-
ously the Research Studio, a
complex of studios and liv-
ing quarters designed by art-
ist and architect Jules Andre
Smith. The stucco buildings
are covered with intricate
murals, reliefs and carvings
in concrete all done in an
Aztec-Mayan theme.
`Ten years after: Smith's
death, in 1969, the city of
Maitland bought the com-
plex, and with the help of
the Maitland Art Associa-
tion, opened it as a cultural
center. -
Orr lived at the colony
with his father, William Orr,
artist and Center trustee
emeritus, until he was about
5 years old. It was only natu-

immersed in the art world
since the age of 1, to pick up
a paintbrush. -
A "plein-air" or open-air
painter, Orr is still influ-


enced today by the natural
space of the center, especial-
ly the courtyard and intri-

of his works are abstract but

Winter Park friend Peggy Strong.
After graduating in 1943 with a de-

in the process picking up a presti-
gious Phi Beta Kappa key, Eleanor
returned to Orlando and a job as
a beat and feature reporter for the
Orlando Sentinel.
She met her husband, dashing
Air Force Officer Russell Fisher on
a blind date. What is
astounding to anyone
jh other than a Presby-
~-5.terian, and Eleanor
was and is a member
of First Presbyterian,
is the fact that her
blind date was from
Fisher Idaho, her father's
native state. W~lhereas
her father had come
here via the U.S Department of Ag-
riculture as an etymologist, Russell
was in training for the Air Force
in Pine Castle. The country was in
the thick of World War II and, like
many romances of the time, theirs
was as a whirlwind. Three monthS
after they met, in December, they
wed and then Russell was shipped
overseas. Eleanor returned to her

Wearing an electric blue blouse
that accented her snowy white hair
and dazzling smile, Eleanor Fisher
welcomed me into her charming
apartment at the Mayflower.
Outside the front door she had
composed a little tablescape, with a
pumpkin, a little witch and cat, and
postcards from places where leaves
change colors in the fall. On the
floor was a pot of gold- and rust-
colored mums.
Eleanor Fisher has always en-
hanceti her world.
Granddaughter of Orlando pio-
neer Joseph Bumby, Eleanor was
born a few blocks away from the
family's hardware store on Church
Street in a stately white-framed
home on Jackson Street. Today the
BB&zT Bank Building (formerly
CNA) occupies the site. Last May
when 125 members of the Bum~by
clan gathered for a family reunion,
the party was appropriately held
at the Citrus Club. The hardware
building was restored as a part of
the Church Street Station complex.

truly in limbo. It doesn't
mean that they are bad
kids; it doesn't mean there
is something wrong with
them. School-age children
have the greatest need
because they have been
through tough times and
need a good, stable loving
family," Rooks said.
Many of these children
spend their lives with dif-
ferent foster families, which
gives them a taste of family
life and relationships, but it
is not meant to be a perma-
nent situation.
Rooks, who has person-
ally acted- as a foster par-
ent to 80 children during
the course of 20 years, said,
"Children need a chance to
belong, to have their own
name and a chance to ex-
perience a family's tradi-
tions."
Nationally, 20,000 chil-
dren age out of the foster
care system per year, mean-
ing they reach 18 years old


something, and it doesn't
matter if they- are 13, 14 or
15 years old. No matter how
good we are, [foster parents]
.are only second best to their
own adoptive family. They
need someone to come
home to at 25 years old,"
Rooks said.
"People often don't real- ,
ize that you don't have to
be wealthy to share your
life with a child from foster
care," Rooks said. Adoptive
parents in Florida are given


financial assistance, and the
child is eligible for financial
aid for college.
Kara smiled as she re-
ferred to the framed photo-
graphs of her two adoptive
children that she keeps by
her desk. "I can't imagine
loving a child any more if
they were mine biologi-
cally," Glasco said. "The kids
were there and they are
beautiful."

job at the Sentinel.
The next 30 years Eleanor spent
raising her family of five children on
Air Force bases around the country
and in Japan and Scotland. She always
wanted to retire in Central Florida, but
in the end it was her husband, the Col-
onel, who made the decision to move
to Winter Park in 1970. With her chil-
dren now grown, Eleanor became a
community leader. Her first big project
was the first acting director of ADDi-
tions, a program initiated by the Junior
League of Orlando. She began with a
handful of volunteers who assisted
teachers in the schools. Thirteen years
later when she resigned, the numbers
of volunteers had grown to 5,000. To-
day there are 45,000 active volunteers
making a huge impact on the Orange
County Public Schools system. Under
Eleanor, the ADDitions program won
numerous awards including four na-
tional awards and four Disney awards.
-In 1985 Eleanor was recognized by the
Greater Orlando Chamber of Com-
merce as the ~Outstanding W~oman of
the Year in the field of education.
Environmentalists long before
'green' became the hot button issue,
she and her husband were both active
in the Audubon Society and were char-
ter members of Friends of the Wekiva
River.
A love of history courses through
the family blood. While sister Jean was
the first director of.the Orange County
Historical Museum in Loch Haven Park
Eleanor joined the board of the Winter
Park Historical Association, which her
lifelong friend Peggy Strong helped
found. She describes the Winter Park
Historical Museum as "her baby." Mfter
a five-year search, the group was given
a portion of the old freight depot built
inl1927 and today is used for the Farm-
ers Market. The 1,000-square-foot


space was in deplorable condition,
but with a lot of donations, volunteer
hours, and architect Don Duer's guid-
ance, they created a museum. The first
exhibit was of Victorian clothes. Ex-
hibitions changed every six or eight
months. Whenever members were at
a loss for exhibits, they raided Flora
TwI~achtman's attic. Today Eleanor vol-
unteers as docent at the museum once
a month.
The Winter Park Library, the second
oldest in Central Florida, was another
of Eleanor's pet projects. She was its
first community relations coordinator.
During her nine years with the library,
she gathered and transcribed many
oral histories.
At the Mayflower, Eleanor has turned
her second bedroom into a cozy li-
brary and her personal historical mu-
seum. One wall is lined with shelves
filled with her beloved books. Elea-
nor belongs to no less than four book
clubs and is a big fan of mystery writer
Dick Frances. There is the American
flag presented to her at her husband's
military funeral in 1996 as well as a
framed cover of Orlando Magazine's
feature about her son astronaut Dr.
William Fisher. He and his former wife
Dr. Anna Fisher were the first married
astronauts. There are many pictures
of her four children and her 10 grand-
children.
The opposite wall is a gallery of
family pictures. Sharing wall space is a
distinguished, bearded Joseph Bumby
and Eleanor's handsome husband,
Russell.
A glass-topped table displays his
many medals and awards.
In 1995 Winter Park named Elea-
nor Fisher as the city's Woman of the
Year, and on Friday, Nov. 21, she will be
honored as one of the city's four Grand
Ladies. Grandfather Joseph must be so
proud.

were put in charge in Iraq
based on a conservative lit-
mus test of ideological puri-
ty? Your stand on abortion
was somehow germane to
administering Iraq's cur-
rency. We're in the war of
our lives, and whether or
not you support a woman's
right to abortion is an im-
pediment to America field-
ing its best team? Unbeliev-
able. Doctrine trumping
competence. Shame on us,
America.
We've given stupidity
and ideology a crack at
ruining, ur, excuse me, run-
ning, running the nation
and oh, boy, have we been
rewarded. Hey you in the
electorate, America's loyal
brain-dead who remain
committed to ideology
trumping competence,
have you had enough yet?
Can we hear, "uncle"?
Nah, every sperm is sa-
cred, every egg too, and
our unfettered financial
markets @@(Ayn Rand
unleashed!)@@ a gift from
God and that is all that
counts in this life, in this
world. Babies and bucks!
Can ya give it up for babies
and bucks?! Oh, you will.
Imagine? Palin (babies) and
Romney (bucks) for 2012.
Babies and bucks redux!
You're salivating aren't you?
C'mon, you are.
I write this Monday
morning, Nov. 3, 2008.
And while I feel and want
Barackc Hussein Obama
to be president, it's close,
and if Jupiter aligns with
Mars, John McCain could be
elected. And I repeat, how
could this be?
You know what? I would


willingly drink champagne
(or a Guinness) with either
man. Easy. I think both
would be engaging, good
conversationalists and sto-
rytellers, too. Both are ca-
pable of abstract thought.
Both see shades of gray.
But McCain, unfortu-
nately for him, is a conduit
for the same partisan, in-
competent ideologue that
we've experienced these
past eight years. There is
accuracy to the charge that
John McCain is a continu-
ance of George Bush.
Someone early on asked
Sme about what Obama
brings to the office. And
I described it by what he
doesn't bring. And I used
for an illustration, Rolo-
dexes. I've had a Rolodex
right next to my computer
screen since the 1970s. I've
been in offices of men and
they've had Rolodexes the
size of golf cart tires, mul-
tiple ones.
Who owns ya? That is
the (a) question we want
to know about our lead- .
ers. From city council, to
county commissioner,
mayor, zoning committee-
man, legislator, governor
and president--who owns
ya, boss?
It's important to know
people. Lots of them. I be-
lieve there is a chance for
Obama to enter office and
Spring with him a smaller
Rolodex of must-return
calls. Among your call-
ers, whom do you talk to?
Those you owe or those
that own you (please notice
.the distinction)? .
We need to change Rolo-
dexes in Washington. That


is what this election boiled
down to.
For the last eight years
we've had a government
run by tractor tire-sized
Rolodexes of babies-and-
bucks ideologues, and
they've guttered the nation,
blew the wheels off the car
and have the passengers
-(us) dazed and confused.
America has been in a pre-
ventable, avoidable acci-
dent, a horrible, off-the-cliff
crash. Some of us have died
unhecessarily and Ameri-
ca's economic future, hor-
ribly muddied. All brought
to by the Conservative Co-
alition of Babies & Bucks
(the~ CCBB, Big Brother by
any other name, ironically
enough). They've ditched
the nation and expect
America to say, sure, yea, @@
you betcha@@! Carry on Ol'
Chap! And the Rolodexes
keep on spinning, righ-
teously Right.
What's the expression?
If you keep getting deeper
(Bush), quit digging the
hole (McCain). No, that's
not quite it. If you're up to
your neck in alligators, first
drain the swamp. Yes, clean
the CCBB vermin, as best
you can, out of Washington.
Start there. And then?
Hope for the best, that is,
if you don't pray.

Democrat leadership for-
ever banish Connecticut

As a reflective individual, I

I don't get why my fel-

a lie.

initiated by a Republican

Terms first heard at
home or in Sunday
School may later
identify themselves as prag-
matic parts of the requisite
social contract that enables
people to put up with each
other.
Few human virtues are
more praiseworthy than
the willingness to ask and
to grant forgiveness.
Each of us is, after all, an
imperfect being and is not
deserving of the forgive- ~
ness of others unless we are
willing to forgive.
The theological concept
of forgiveness is stressed
byr Jesus as a necessity for
entrance into Paradise.
And in day-to-day human
intercourse, forgiveness is
a sine qua non for produc-
tive social and familial har-
many.
An implacable refusal to
accept a reasonable apol-
ogy stops things cold, and
leaves no way to pick up
the pieces. Plenty of songs

speaks in these words, "A
woman wiill forgive a man
anything except his failure
to ask her forgiveness."
Anon
Add this P.S.: "Any
womah will forgive a man-
for marrying for money,
provided it is no~t her
money."
Anon
And P.P.S.: "A woman
may promise to forgive and
forget, but she will never
promise to forget she has
forgiven."
Anon
"If anybody really .
remembered the past,
nobody would forgive any-
body anything!"
-Rob~ertLynd
"There are two types of
people: those who are for
getting and those who
are for giving. "
Anon
"Today the quality of
merciful forgiving is not
only strained, but also
tenderized, sterilized and
homogenized."
Anon
"The memory and con-
science never did, and
never will agree about for-
giving injuries."
Britain'sLordHakifax
America's erudite Elbert
Hubbard observed, "We
never ask God to forgive
anybody except where
we haven't."
"When you hold resent-
ment toward another, you
are bound to that person or
condition by an emotional
link that is stronger than
steel. Forgiveness is the
Only way to dissolve that
link and get free."
Catherine Ponider
(I fear I have run on too
long. Please forgive me -
L.R.)


Anything from letting a
door shut in someone else's
face to committing a strong
grievance against another
person calls for a request
for forgiveness.
"Excuse me," "Pardon
me," "I beg your pardon,"
"Please forgive me," "I'm so
sorry" these are all words
one should probably be uti-
lizing regularly.
Well-raised kids should
learn early in life such
words from their parents.
The acceptance of one's
own imperfections is a
hard feat for some people.
They are to be pitied, for
they go through life with
their blackboards of mis-
deeds in full view.
Tw~elve-step programs
instruct members to "make
amends" to anyone they
may have hurt in any way
whatsoever. This step is
important along the road
to recovery. What if the
"offended party" refuses
to accept an apology? Too
bad you did all you could
do. Now move forward
with your life.
Implacability as to
accepting an apology
depends on the nature of
the offense and the char-
acter of the "offended."
My personal choice is to
accept any apology sin-
cerely offered, unless such
an offense deserves to be
decided by the Courts.
"Forgive and forget" is a
high human art. "To err is
human; to forgive, divine"
intimates that forgiveness
is an angelic trait. -
Some today believe that
"To err is human; to forgive,
unusual."
Anon
Laurence Sterne recog-
nized that it takes a certain
brand of courage to forgive:


"Only the brave know how
to forgive. A coward never
forgives; for it is not in his
nature."
Christ's last words were,
"Father, forgive them; for
they know not what they
do."
New Testament
The universal contract
according to William Blake:
"I forgive you, you forgive
me."
Sir Francis Bacon puts
these words into the mouth
of his character the Duke of
Florence: "We read that we
ought to forgive our ene-
mies; but we do not read
that we ought to forgive
our friends." The psycho-
logical implications of that
statement are stunning.
The cynical wit Oscar
Wilde put it this way,
"Always forgive your ene-
mies nothing annoys
them so much."
Brilliantly ironic George
Bernard Shaw quipped,
"The secret o~f forgiving
everything is to understand
nothing."
Novelist W. Somerset
Maugham penned this
provocative profundity-
"People will sometimes for-
give you the good you have
done them, but seldom the
harm they have done you. "
Democratic Presidential
candidate Adlai Stevenson
said after he lost the big
election to Eisenhower, "I
believe in the forgiveness
of sins, and the redemption
of ignorance."
"I can forgive everyone's
mistakes but my own," said
the great Roman Cato.
Film star Marlene
Dietrich said, "Once a
woman has forgiven her
man, she must not reheat
his sins for breakfast."
A female point of view


theme of "being sorry," e.g.
"WXho's sorry now?" etc.
In my lifetime, I've
known well two people
who, to my knowledge,
were proud never to have
uttered an apology to any-
one what a weight to
carry around!
One need not ponder
theology in order to uti-
lize theological truth, for
the same truthful entity
may serve as lubrication
between jangling personal-
ities, and to get people into
whatever heaven they're
hoping for. .
The phrase, "Forgive us,
as we forgive others ..." is
clearly part of one's social
contract as well as one's
religious duty.
It's a scary concept when
you think it over. This con-
tract is patently a "deal "
between you and God, or
between you and the rest of
the human race.
If you don't forgive
other people, you'll never
get rid of the millstone of
guilt that hangs around
your neck just for being an
imperfect person.
Where did inner human
conscience originate? Who
knows. But it's there all the
same, a built-in compass to
keep you on course if you
let it. Asking forgiveness
puts you on an even play-
ing field with all humanity,
and erases the blackboard
where your own iniquities
are scribbled.
There is something
inherently ennobling in
the act of asking forgive-
ness, for in doing so one
frees oneself from the "false
pride" that John Bunyan -
warned can damn us.
".Pride goeth before a
fall."
Old Hebrew proverb


What a blessing that elec-
tions are over for a while.
Aristotle said, "Man is a
political animal." He didn't
say the half of it! There is
a boundary line that we
animals commonly do not
cross in our private lives.
In their final scrapping,
political candidates resort
to ad hominemz attacks and
strained veracity when-
ever it suits their purpose.
It's tiresome to confront
hateful political talk in the
media! But I doubt that
things have changed a whit
since Aristotle's day ... .

Now that we've had our
first chilly weather and
some of us do not like it I
remember an old Florida
saying: "If you think it's
cold here, imagine what it's
like up North."

Retirement or Tirement
Almost three years ago, I
began what was slated to
be my "retirement." Before
that, I had often been busy
in a musical performance
organization, writing
various and sundry things,
teaching private voice, and


"professoring" full-time
at UCF. All through my
pre-retirement years, I had
thought fondly of times to
come, when I would read
from the thousands of
books in our house while
seated comfortably in our
very inviting library. Guess
what? Concomitant with
my retirement, macular
degeneration robbed me of
my ability to read anything
at all. I continue to write
thanks to the fact that my
b.w. is able to take over the
typing of my newspaper
columns, while I dictate. So
... I am already quite tired
of my retirement. Did I
retire too soon?
"No," said my wife.
I'm not so sure about
that.
After all, I was only 85
when I retired.


Lack of support for arts
groups in Central Florida
is lamentable. Having, with
my b.w., started an out-
standing performing arts
group in 1984, and having
worked 17 years to and
keep it going, I urge my fel-
low citizens to be generous
to the arts. Arts groups are
too often taken for granted
and are not missed until
they are lost. The quality
of life in our community
Sis very dependent upon
its arts. From their earliest
years, children particularly
benefit by having the arts
as part of their lives,

Just as you cannot teach a
stupid person to be smart,
you can't teach a pig how
to sing it will frustrate
you, and irritate the pig.

A newscaster says on TV the
other day, "I wish we were
moving away from using
those kind of rough words."
Personally, I wish that we
were moving away from
those kind of grammar also!

Irres onsible messi g
around in the mortgage


business prodded this
country to take its first big
step toward government
control of private industry.
Were those involved evildo-
ers or just plain dumb? The
results of evil and of stupid-
ity are often the same so
does it matter to us what
the motive was?

Noting the large number of
"for sale" signs on houses
in Winter Park, we wonder
why people are selling?
Are many of these homes
mortgaged and owned by
people who bit off more
than they could chew? Are
houses built "on spec" now
builders' burdens?

"Our attitudes control our
lives. Attitudes are a secret
power working 24 hours
a day, for good or bad. It is
of paramount importance
that we know how to har-
ness and control this great
force." Tom Blandi

"One of the campaign
themes of this election
cycle is "affordable" health
care. Shouldn't we ask our-
selves whether we want the


politicians who brought us
the "affordable" housing
crisis, that created the cur-
rent financial debacle, now
to deliver us affordable
health care?" -- Columnist
Walter Wi~lliams

"First, the $700 billion res-
cue fb~r the economy was
about buying devalued
mortgage-backed securi-
ties from tottering banks
to unclog frozen credit
markets. Then it was about
using $250 billion of it to
buy stakes in banks. The
idea was that banks would
use the money to start
making loans again. But
reports surfaced that bank-
ers might instead use the
money to buy other banks,
pay dividends, give employ-
ees a raise and executives a
bonus, or just sit on it." -
Associated Press

The news has identified
a union that says that its
workers must vote openly
in political elections. Since
when is the right to a pri-
vate vote not "the tradi-
tional American way"?

Mary Baxter, a five year resident of Alabama Oaks in Winter Park, says she lives there for the intimate atmosphere, including freshly-cooked food and southern charm. The facility recently celebrated its 80th birthday.

facility has room for just 19 res-

main house and three quaint
cottages.
The facility's history spans a
lifetime as long as some of its
residents'.
The city of Winter Park formed
as a destination for snow-


birds, and just down the street
sat The Alabama Hotel. In the
late '50s, The Alabama became
a retirement hotel, and when
it overflowed, people stayed at

Oaks was one of the first facili-

he added.
When it fell into disrepair


more than' a decade ago, Rose, a
high-end developer, decided to
buy it. "It had good bones," he
said, citing the Southern archi-

The pool, previously green, was

"It's been 10 years and it looks


as good as it ever did," he said.
That may have a lot to do with
the womah in charge.

Both Rose's grandmother and
Salli's husband spent their last

For Rose, having his grand-

why it's special," he said, adding-
that family members can stop

Designing your garden to con-
serve water can help weed out
one cause of high utility bills and
preserve your environment.
Advance planning can save
homeowners hundreds and
even thousands of gallons of
water during the growing sea

water-saving garden makeover

Landscape Architects:


nance and little watering once
established sometimes none
at all.

MUftst mulch
Use compost when planting and
cover the area with mulch after-
ward. Compost helps keep the
water by the plant's roots and
mulch prevents evaporation.
Make sure to leave some space

See GARDEN on page B3


Start earrl~y
Plan ahead so that all new plant-
ings take place in the spring.
Plants require much less water
to get situated when they are
planted during the cooler

Go native
When deciding what to install in
your yard, consider native and
drought-resistant plants. They

around the base of each plant and resist
creating mulch mounds around plants and
trees.

Less lawn
The average American uses 200 gallons per
day watering the lawn. Consider replac-
ing some of that grass with an attractive
ground cover that is drought-resistant,
covers a large area and requires no mow-
ing

Supersoak
Up to a third of all water from sprinklers
can evaporate during the heat of the day.
Instead, give your plants fewer, heavy soak-
ings. If you use sprinklers, only use them in
the morning.

Gray is good
Recapturing gray water or rainwater can
provide a free source of garden irrigation.
These systems can be easily installed and
even incorporated into irrigation systems.

Drip, drip, drip
Drip irrigation systems water plants right
at the root and serve as an efficient alte'r-
native to sprinkler systems. For maximum
effectiveness, be sure to get a timer.

through landscape design or to find a land-
scape architect, visit ASIAkorg.
