Critics grow louder about rail cost

JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF
The Maitland Fire Depart-
ment is getting a new home
in a familiar location.
In a workshop Monday,
the Maitland Cotmncil, along
with several other boards,
decided that the current
fire station's site on Pack-
wood Avenue is the smart-
est pick for the new facility.
City staff hopes to pres-
entt the Council with a func-
tional design of the station
in mid-December. The de-
partment will be temporar-
ily relocated while the cur-
rent station is demolished
and the new one built, tak-
ing about 15 months and
costing about $r4.5 million.
The alternative site, two
lots on East Horatio and
Swoope avenues, would
have cost about $7.2 mil-
lion, said Community Re-
development Director Verl
Emrick, and also would
have required land acquisi-
tion.
The fire station project
began as a joint agreement
in 2007 between Trevi De-
velopment and the Brossier
Company. That agreement
soured when Trevi put its
land on the market in Sep-

Critics of Winter Park's
entry into the commuter
rail system argued for a re-
examination of the costs
of the project at Monday's
City Commission meeting,
citing that it would be the
most expensive system per
mile in the country's his-
tory.
The new angle of attack
came as part of a prolonged
push from City Commis-
sioner Beth Dillaha and
some city residents, who
said thie city is rushing too
quickly- into a deal to be-
come part of' a proposed
commuter rail system be-
fore understanding the fi-
nancial implications.
"It is the biggest project


we will have ever taken on,"
Dillaha said. "I think there
is always wisdom in re-ex-
amining a project."
She said the system
would cost $10.5 million
per mile a record for U.S.
rail systems.
"It's the most expensive
rail project in the history of
the United States," she said.
The Florida Department
of Transportation and
transportation company
CSX have a history of setting
records for cost in taxpayer~
funded rail systems in the
past. Of the top six most ex-
pensive rail deals per mile
in U.S. history, three of them
were brokered between.the
Florida agency and CSX.
That list was cited in a
study by consulting firm
Harrison, Warner, Weber

A brass trio trumpeted Win-
ter Park's fanfare, signaling
the start of the mayor's an-
nual State of the Cityaddress.
Before a crowd of more than
200 loyal supporters, citi-
zens and staff, Mayor David
Strong declared the state of
the city as strong. The may-

ion Week.
Another Casselberry designer,
Melissa Walker, didn't take home
the top ~prize but won't forget the
experience. ..
After each ofWalker's looks made
a trip down the runway, the models
all headed out together with their
designer. As she smiled and waved,
one of her family members handed
her a bouquet of flowers and she
started -to cry.
"I. didn't know they were all
here," she said during the show's in-
termission.
The 24-year-old spent the last
two months putting together her
designs, collectively dubbed "11:11
Downtown." She's been designing
for about two years, learning from
her grandmother, a sewing profes-
sor. Walker also works as a seam-
stress for local line Raw Materials.
"I think it turned out great," she
said. "P've dreamed about this since
I can remember."
This is the second year of Park
Avenue Fashion Week and is double


the size of last year's. ~Also, "Tent
City," a cluster of .tents as large
as some fast food restaurants, all
erected in Central Park, was new to
.the event. They were provided by
Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week tent
designer George Strickland, a local
resident.
"It was very good this year," said
Hozumi Greiner, a judge for the
contest and a model scout. She said
Walker's creativity stood out. She
said she also liked the screen T-
shirts of Lua Oake designers Javier
Gullian and Matt Bazelka.
The 2008 show had minor glitch-
es, such as duplicate outfits getting
sent down the runway, but that was
nothing compared to the previous
year.
"Last year it ~was a total wash- .
out," said Myriah Hampton, editor
of Orlando Style Magazine, of the
rain that postponed the 2007 out-
door show. She said .that was the
reason for this year's tents.
She' said she liked' the touch of
having local designers as well a's es-
tablished boutiques show clothes.
"I was excited to see how it all came

Fashions from Casselberry designer Melissa Walker got their time in the spo


together," she said. "It's very similar
to a New York fashion show."
She and Orlando Style intern Jes-
sica Booher were also keen to see
the "who's who of Winter Park" in
attendance. "That's really why peo-
ple come to these things," Hampton
said with a laugh.

That would include taxpayer li-
ability for damages in accidents,
which CSX stipulated the govern-
ment would carry the full burden
for. .
"I was really surprised at how fast
the commissioners jumped on sign-
ing our life away," she said. "This is a
contingency the event that may
in-debt you has not happened yet.
It just seems ridiculous to have an
open-ended contract."
SSupporters of the rail system also
called into question the economics
behind the deal.
"I believe the majority of citizens
want a -commuter rail stop in Win-
ter Park," Kathryn Grammer said.
"But perhaps we're getting numb to
costs. Buying what we want because
we don't have to pay for it now isn't
sound economic planning. It's not
economic planning at all." .
SSome in the audience raised fears
that commissioners such as Dillaha
were trying to derail the rail system
before it was built.


"I feel like I'm Yogi Berra it's
deja vu all over again," resident
Pete Weldon said. "How do we en-
vision the city of Winter Park with
40 trains a day passing us by? I don't
see it."
Commissioner Karen Diebel had
previously accused Dillaha of going
against the will of the voters by at-
tempting to stop the rail plan.
"IfMrs. Dillaha succeeds in killing
commuter rail in Winter Park now,
Winter Park will be on the hook
for nearly $500,000 if we break our
contract," Diebel said in a speech in
front of city hall in September.
The commission plans to send
a letter of concerns to the Orange
County government in an attempt
to negotiate.
Resident Sailly Flynn agreed with
*that approach. "We need to go to
Orange County and try to get the
best financial deal that we can get,"
she said. "WJChy sit here and take it
on the chin?"


she said'showed there wouldn't be
enough rail users to justify the cost.
Former Winter Park Mayor Joe
Terranova said that the lack of a
dedicated funding source from
the federal government is "a deal-
breaker," citing funding problems
faced by Central Florida's, larg-
est mass transportation company,
Lynx.
"Lynx has to goi hat-in-hand ev-
ery year to all its funding partners,"
Terranova said. .
He also said that a re-negotiation
with Orange County over terms of
sharing costs seems unlikely.
"Orange County has given no in-
dications that they want to re-ne-
gotiate," he said.
University of Central Florida
professor Pamela RouSh agreed that
the rail deal needed to be revisited,
specifically a portion that would
lock Winter Park into paying for rail
maintenance and operating costs
for 99 years without being able to
opt out after 20 17. .

ally so far out of line that it's almost
laughable, if it wasn't so damaging,"
wrote R.M. Grandish, from the con-
sulting firm, in a letter to Dillaha.
Resident Sandy Womble said that
people and companies who stand
to gain from the commuter rail deal
are pushing it through.
"I think there are a lot of special
interests driving this," she said.
Dillaha urged the city to pressure
Orange County -- with which Win-
ter Park would partner in sharing
costs for building and using the sys-
tem to allow terms to renegotiate
their contract, including the ability
to opt out of the contract, and to
clarify financial liability issues.
Worries about having funding in
place at all had many residents at
th~e podium. A $300 million fund-
ing package from the federal gov-
ernment hasn't been set in stone
yet, Dillaha said, and that would be
contingent on a ridership study that

tember.
"We now sit here in November 2008,
over a year and two months later," May-
or Doxig Kinson said, pausing, "not hav-
ing inoved forward one iota."
He said the new police station is
moving forward because the city took
control of its own project, something it
must do in this case as well. "We can't af-
ford to wait on this any longer."

of Packwood Avenue and
Inter Street. Volunteers that
participated in the effort
included members of the
Parker family, the Ponders
(still on Maitland Avenue),
the Ragazinos, alohg with
members of the Strong fam-
ily' (of Quinn-Strong Park
fame). The.Inter Street ac-
cess was eliminated when
the current city complex
was built in 1973.
Ezra Hardy, our city's first
full-time fire chief, replaced
volunteer fire Chief Edwin
Ballard in 1972. In that
year, we had three full-time
firefighters,- supported by
a volunteer force. Our first
deputy chief, Julius Sasser,
was appointed in that same
year. .
In 1975, the city of Mai-
tland announced the addi-
tion of Advanced Life Sup-
port (paramedics) to the
team, and in 1988, hired
our first medical services di-
rector, Dr. Todd Husty, who
continues to serve our com-
munity today.


After years of debate and
false starts, our patient' fire-
fighters and chief are finally
beginning to realize that the
dream of a new fire station
may soon come to fruition.
In a workshop Monday,
the Maitland City Council,
the Planning and Zoning
Commission, the CRA. Board
and the CRA Advisory Board
gave the direction -to staff
to pursue building a new
fire station on existing city-
owned property. .
Since the beginning, the
mission of the Maitland
Fire Rescue Department has


been "to provide superior
quality emergency andj non-
enriergencycustomerservice
to the residents of Maitland,
visitors and neighboring
communities. We are com-
mitted to serve with the
highest standard of integ-
rity in a courteous manner
to protect life, property and
the environment."
The Maitland Fire De-
partment has a long his-
tory. The department was
organized in 1926, and in
the early 1950s, volunteers
built a new fire station that
formerly sat at the corner


Today, our team has
grown to 41 full-time fire-
fighters, and we are proud
to be a part of finally finding
them a new home.
Many thanks go out to
Dr. Mark Round, as he an-
nounced at the workshop
that the Friends of First
Response has successfully
completed their mission of
providing dress blues to all
of our firefighters. A check
in excess of $11;000 was


presented to ChiefKen Neu-
hard, who provided a mov-
ing speech in acceptance.
This is a monumental effort
not unlike the volunteer ef-
fort that resulted in the con-
structibn of our first fire sta-
tion.
Thank goodness some
things never change!

Rosemary Gillett- lives
and maintains her studio-
in Winter Park. Her paint-
ings describe her interest in
Italy and most recently her
hometown of Winter Park.
The artist said that the task
she set out for herself for
the paintings in the Com-
mission Chambers titled
"lolanimous, Tabled, De-
nied!" "is to convey a mes-
sage with minimal lines and
maximum color about what
goes on in the City Hall'
Commission Chambers."
Her paintings in Room 200,
"WMas, Is, Could Be are "a se-
ries of popular Wimter Park
scenes whimsically viewed
through the artist's imagi-
nation."
Art in Chambers is a
project of the Winter Park
Public Art Advisory Board
that showcases the city's
art collection, works by lo-
cal artists, or works bor-
rowed from local museums.
The project enlivens Winter
Park's public rooms and ex-
poses residents and visitors
to art, highlights the im-
portance the city places on
art and culture, provides
city support to local artists
and studios, and creates op-
portunities to educate the
populace on the value of art
af d its place in a meaning-
f l'e.

jess' like to mess wit-choo
whitess" We laughed.
But it's been us whites
messing with black Amer-
ica that has the election of
Barack Obama smelling so
Sweet. I was so very pleased
that in the primaries,
white Iowa came out for
black Obama. It signaled
to America (particularly- ,,
black America) that a new
day was possible whites
would vote a black man
president. As "they" say, the
rest is history.
My best man at my wed-
ding nearly 40 years ago
was a black man named
Dwight Dow. We shared
college history courses.
No kinder, gentler, more
humane a man have I ever
met. He stepped off a build-
ing to his death because, I
believe, the world became
unbearable. Life is too sor-
rowful at times even to be
hopeful.
My bestest man, Curtis,
is still frequently the only
black man in an all-white
business meeting. He is suc-
cessful. He is respected. He
is admired. He is l~ack. He
calls and tells me, "I was the
only black in the regional
golf tournament.2
.He then says, "I won."
And we laugh. I love it.
Obama won. America
won. It is a new day and it is
good.

they're justified in what
they're doing to achieve
justice." I remember this
conversation distinctly
because dad said he was
wrong about marijuana,
too. That dad!
My father was too intel-
ligent to ignore (forever)
the facts. He was capable of
change; that didn't mean,
however, that he started
sending money to the
NAACP. It meant, "You're
justified in your fight." He
understood as best as any
pasty-white 56-year-old
lowan ever could -. that
"bad things happen to good
people." And at soine point,
the scales must balance.
In 1978 I met Curtis.
Curtis is this flamboyant,
out-there, fast-talking,
incredibly fun and funny,
handsome, talented black
man. At that time he was
working for a quasi-govern-
ment bureau that placed
workers in nonprofit agen-
cies. He sold me on the pro-
gram and placed a number
of employees with the or-
ganization I was running at
the time.
We became and con-
tinue to be best friends.
Curtis moved into the for-
profit sector and was an
early hire (as a black man)
for a number of corpora-
tions. He has the most
incredible racial stories
to tell that would curdle
your blood and leave you
screaming if they had hap-
pened to you as an em-
ployee, as a human being.
Being the first black man in
an office or company is an


incredible burden. One we
pasty white people cannot
really imagine.
Aside: Similar stories can
be offered for women, too.
First female hires in the '60s
and '70s for example, in
prestigious law firms, where
the number of female at-
torneys you could count on
one hand were equally
daunted. Couple black and
female and you have an-
other set of challenges to -
overcome.
Through Curtis I met
Bob. Bob was the handsom-
est black man P've ever met.
Bob was an All-American
football player. Bob was big
and powerful and bright.
Bob owned aniy room when
he was in it. He frightened
pasty white boys to no
enid. Bob made'um cower
and whimper. It was actu-
ally fun to watch. The guy
would leave and Bob-would
wink at me. Women loved
Bob. He made'um melt.
Bob was formidable,
aggressive and rose like
a shooting star. He was
repeatedly a sales star at
major, major American cor-
porations, but because Bob
was who he~was black,
intelligent and assertive -
he hit the ceiling for blacks.
He couldn't crack manage-
ment.
I once said to Bob, "I
don't get it. Once you were
called negroes and then it
was blacks and now it's Af-
rican-Americans. What's up
with that? Can't you make
up yoitr mind?
Bob laughed his infec-
tious laugh and said, "We


newspaper to a black fam-
ily that moved, into a home
on my route. I don't know
why (or remember) but I
became aware that "they"
had crossed some geo-
graphical barrier within the
city, a line. Nothing hap-
pened. This was 1963.
I never remember my
father uttering a racist re-
mark in his life. But if I were
to venture a guess today, he
was a racist. He would not
have wanted either of his
daughters to marry a black
man. He probably would
not have wanted a black
family to move in down the
block but he never would
Shave been rude. I do know
my father was capable of
change. A~s was/is America.
In 1975, I was back in
town looking for work. My
father and I were standing
in the kitchen talking about
whatever fathers and sons
talk about, and out of the
blue, he said (in essence),
'"You know, I was wrong.
Negroes never had a fair
shake in this country and


White America can no
more imagine being kicked
around because they're
pasty-white than blacks
could once imagine walk-
ing through the front door
of the White House (une-
scorted by cops I might
add). Slaves built the White
House. Slaves built much
of early America. The Civil
War ended slavery, per se
but intolerance and perse-
cution continued through-
out all of America for an-
other hundred-plus years.
But for the perseverance
and guts of black leaders,
we wouldn't be where we
are today -- with a black
man in the White House.
No more a pasty white
man was my father. He was
of 100 percent Danish ex-
traction (but who knows
one's "real" genetic wood-
pile) and he lived a racially
sheltered life in Sioux City,
Iowa. I grew up in a town
of 125,000 and we maybe,
maybe had 50 black fami-
lies. I remember delivering
the Des Moines Register


they must be reconciled to avoid
dumping an ever-larger tax and
utility burden on our residents.
You and your majority killed
funding for completion of the
form-codes project, our best op-
portunity to reconcile developer
and citizen redevelopment con-
flicts.
As it stands now, all that will
happen under your policies is
that costs of running the city and
utilities will increase and the only
source of funds will come from
millage and utility rates, fees, and
taxes on existing, unimproved
properties.
While I hope our local economy
rebounds soon, what happens if'
revenues continue to decline?
Your policies obstruct opportu-
nities to increase property values
and increase revenue while guaran-
teeirig ongoing increases in taxes
and fees for existing residents.
Your policies and priorities con-
tinue and seek to institutionalize
the factionalism that distracts us
from real opportunities for this
city.

do nothing. to address the spread
between revenues and expendi-
tures that will be required over
the long term to avoid significant
tax and or utility rate increases,
let alone provide funds to replace, .
renew, or create civic resources, or
buy park land. Your policies and
priorities instead decrease the city's
financial prospects and flexibility
to adapt to inevitable changes.
You have shown an aversion
to redevelopment that would
strengthen our commercial core
and contribute to~the tax base of
our city. I am referring to your us-
ing the Comprehensive Plan as a
tool to deny future democratic pro-
cess at the local level, as if your cur-
rent policy preferences will reflect
realities faced by the voters in fu-
ture decades. If these supermajor-
ity voting requirements stand, the
taxpayers of Winter Park can look
forward to years of tax increases
with no hope of relief.
You have chosen to simply lock
out any possible redevelopment
rather than undertake the hard
work of reconciling what is eco-
nomic with what complements
the character and quality of Winter
Park. These two realities are not
mutually exclusive and further, -


I expressed frustration when the
Fitch company downgraded Win-
ter Park's municipal debt in early
September. This letter responds to
your e-mail of Sept. 1 1 where you
asked if I could clarifyi my com-
ments. You asked, "I am interested
to know which 'policies adopted
by our City Commission contribute
to this weakness' to cover our debt
obligations? I would be interested
to know what you are referring to."
Thank you foyr the opportunity
to respond.
Here is the relevant portion of
an Orlando Business Journal article
dated Sept. 10, addressing the Fitch
downgrade of Winter Park bonds:'
"Fitch said the downgrade reflects
'a continued decrease in liquidity
and a notable decline in overall fi-
nancial flexibility.' While city man-
agement maintains that reserves
in other city funds, including the
general fund, are available to sup-
plement the system, Fitch said the
'overall unrestricted cash position
across all funds is weak,' leaving the
system with 'a slim amount of ac-
cessible liquidity."'"
Let's start with the $4 million
decision to make the developers
of the former post office redevel-
opment project "whole" at the _


expense of Winter Park taxpayers.
As a founding director of the One
Winter Park advocacy group you
were instrumental in working to
kill this project and thereby expose
our city to unnecessary risk and the
related burden to our taxpayers.
We come to fall 2008 with the
housing bubble burst, state-man-
dated budget reduction require-
ments, a costly structural problem
wittl $50 million of our utility debt,
and declining city revenues, among
Other challenges'. Our general fund
reserves are insufficient to address
these challenges as a direct result
of policies that you, Margie Bridges
and David Strong insisted be im-
posed on the city. Please re-read
the statement from Fitch above.
SSince establishing~your major-
ity in March, you, Margie Bridges
and David Strong have promoted,
embraced and approved policies
that will increase the shortfall of
revenues required to cover ever-
increasing expenditures. Your
policies will require continuing tax
increases to balance the budget
and keep the city's balance sheet
clean. This is confirmed by the tax
increase you recently voted for.
The policies you and your major-
ity have embraced and approved

next to some beau-

an airplane, I am going
to skim rapidly through
the last pages of Stephen
Hawking's "A Brief History
of Time."
I am going to have one
of those lined yellow pads

every few moments to
write down some long,
impressive-looking equa-

If the young woman
takes the bait, and eventu-
ally asks me what it is that
I do, I think I'll tell her 'm

player just enjoying some
light mental relaxation.

which he carries me to the

hension and then sidles

teries still remains behind
doors locked to our under-
standing.
The more we learn about
the physical universe, the
less sure we are about the
Creator, and the primeval
purpose behind all He/She/
It created.
All imagined cosmic
roads lead to dissatisfying
ends, i.e.: an imploding
''big crunch," or an ever-
expanding "cold, dark,
burned-out universe."
However, in the flick of a
human life, many relative
satisfactions can be met
and enjoyed.
Abraham Lincoln once
said: "'An Eastern monarch
(Omar Khayyam) charged
his wise men to invent
hinr a sentence ... which
should be true in all times
and situations. They pre-
sented him with the words,
'This too Shall pass ...' How
chastening in the hour of
pride! How consoling in
the depths of affliction! Let
us hope that, by the best
cultivation of the physical
world beneath and around
us, and the best intellectual
and moral world within us,
we shall secure ... prosper-
ity and happiness ... which,
while the earth endures,
will not pass away." -
I wonder if Abe knew
that he was already think-
ing in relative Einsteinian
terms? Abe could not have
known that one day the
sun will expand into a giant
red star that will engulf
maybe most, or all, of the
solar system, and that our
Earth and everything on it
will be converted to funda-
mental particles.
Should we worry about
how the universe was
formed or how, and
when, it will end?


No matter whether we
"should." The fact is, we do
worry about these things,
the way we might worry
about the ends of our chil-
dren's lives, which occa-
sions we normally will not
be around to see.
The "Big Bang" is an idea
pretty well accepted nowa-
days at least until some-
thing more logical comes
along.
Physicists are able to
think backward almost to
the universe's beginning
with the explosion ofa
"singularity," a single point
of infinite density.
The "almost" is a tiny
fraction of a second (a
decimal point followed by
42 zeros and the numeral
1). All known mathematics
and physics "break down"
when we reach that time
barrier.
That infinitesimal
moment is known as
";Planck time," named after
Gijttingen University's
great physicist, Max Planck,
the teacher of Einstein,
Teller, Fermi, Oppenhieimer,
von Neumanni, and many
others who were involved
in "splitting the atom."'
Planck time contains the
secrets of Creation.
We are a small planet in
a galaxy with hundreds of
billions of stars, said Carl
Sagan. He added that the
universe contains hundreds
of billions of galaxies.
OK, Carl, I'm feeling
pretty modest about now.
Still, I'11 keep wrestling
with Hawki~ng's book and
other incomprehensible
cosmological writings that
come along.
Maybe they'll let me start
up some interesting con-
versations on airplanes, if
nothing else ...


across an invisible line,
leaving me behind in very
finite dust.
How many people can
honestly understand what
Hawking is talking about
past page 100? And how
come such a hard-to-com-
prehend book is a best-sell-
er? I would guess that peo-
ple are looking to Hawking
for a "quick fix" regarding
some baffling questions.
Intelligent man, from
antiquity, has wondered
where we came from,
where we are going, and
awhat is the ultimate pur-
pose of it all.
The finite human mind,
surrounded by an infinite
universe, has throughout
time invented an elaborate ~
oligarchy of supernatural
beings to act as envoysy"
between the speck of dust
we live on and the bound-
less extragalactic space
around us.
If space is heaven, heav-
en is dark, mostly empty,
and nearly as cold as cold
can get.
About half a millennium
ago, radical scientific think-
ers such as Copernicus and
Galileo refuted Aristotle's
assertion that the Earth
was the center of the uni-
verse.
By the 18th century,
thinking people in Europe
began to be uncomfort-
able with the gap between
irrefutable and discreetly
recorded scientific obser-
vation and the elaborate
trappings of established
theology.
Along came Frenchman
Rene Descartes, who,
bridged European philo-
sophical thought with
ancient Classical traditions
-- England's Isaac Newton,
who engineered the first


extensive view of physical
.laws and Charles Darwin,
who, in 1859, opened to
human eyes a vast scientific
world which was indepen-
dent of theology.
As we entered this cen-
tury, Germany's Albert
Einstein wrote on his
blackboard two theories
that remolded all existing
definitions of~reality.
Einstein insisted on
the existence of an inde-
structible mathematical
link between the small-
est things and the largest
things in existence.
He sought one general
"theor'y" that would, sim-
ply put, explain everything
from the microcosm of
indivisible particles of mat-
ter to the macrocosm of
the outermost galaxies.
The anthropic prin- -
ciple maintains that we
see the universe the way it
is because if the universe
had evolved differently, we
wouldn't be here to see it
at all.
It would seem that our
evolving ability to dis-
cover what is around us
was a -"built-in" wish of
that power which brought
everything into existence.
The earth's first couple
of billion years were too
hot for anything complex
to develop. The next 3
billion years have encom-
passed the long biological
evolution that has led to
the brain of man, a crea-
ture capable of asking what
happened at the moment
of creation.
Mathematics promises
to answer lots of howss."
But the "whys" of creation
may forever go unan-
swered. The nature of con-
sciousness, of memory, and
of other metaphysical mys-


On Oct. 23, I wrote:
"What are we doing?
Where are we going?
Are a great many of us -
average Americans asking
ourselves if, in the name
.of the good Lord, we ever
wish to elect political lead-
ership who may bring us
any or most of the follow-
ing items:
Higher income taxes;
more taxes on 401(k)
s, 4C03(b)s and IRAs etc.;
unlimited government
spending; background
of consorting with ter-
rorists or felons; regis-

trolled cloning; end of tra-

ily; open borders; interna-
tionalism; loss of American


culture and language; and
finally increasing disap-
pearance of our identity
as Americans?" On Nov.
4, a simple majority of
Americans elected a guy
who seemed to counte-
nance all of the above.

One of the nicest evenings
in our memory was on Nov.
2 at a sumpttrous banquet
in the Johann Strauss room
of Orlando's beautiful
Grand Bohemian Hotel.
The occasion was the 25th
Anniversary of the Festival
of Orchestras, a presenting
organization that brings
five great international
symphony orchestras to
the Bob Carr Performing
Arts Centre each season. My
b.w. and I were generously
recognized and fdted as
founders of the organiza-
tion by the Festival's execx-
tive director, Susan Carey,
and chairman of the board,
Pamela Cox. We started the
Festival with a handful of
people in our living room
all those years ago!

What makes Winter Park ...
Winter Park? Recalling my


childhood here, I think it
was the shaded oak-lined
streets that were the town's
immediate charm, plus
the quaint New England
"green" in the town center.
The trees were not native,
but were imported by early
settlers. Lots of Winter
Park's legendary charm
remains, but has submitted
to out-of-place changes not
welcomed by everyone.

The center building in
what is now the 9th Grade
Center was once our only
school beyond the old
grammar school on Park
Avenue. One building
housed classrooms from
seventh through 12th
grades. I found the teachers
to be exceptional, and my
studies in that building won
me a scholarship through
Harvard.


Tibetan monks at Rollins
In Tiedtke Concert Hall
at Rollins College on the
evening of Nov. 7, the
renowned Tibetan Monks
performed a surpris- .
ingly novel concert. What
Tibetan Monks perform
in monasteries comes as a
surprise even perhaps a
shock to Occidental ears
and eyes. The Western hear-
er-spectator may find the
"music" far from organized
sound. The group's main
visual attraction is spectac-
ulai-ly beautiful~costumes.
The philosophical-religious
import that runs through
everything on stage is
peace, self-revelation, and
world healing.
The program began with
a procession of nine red-
and yellow-clad monks.
Then came a startling blare
from two very long tele-
scoping horns, plus two
short horns, cymbal and
drum. After cacophony
of disjointed sound, sans a
hint of melody, the monks
then chanted, with a drone
--on the bottom lower than
any human voice I can
remember. Later in the~pro-


gram, two monks in gor-
geous gold, red, green and
black finery with elaborate
headgear danced with
angular jerky movements.
Then, a dance featuring a
Snow Lion depicted a sym-
bol of elegant and fearless
mentality.
.In 1959, Red Chinese
Communists conquered
Tibet and destroyed its
great monastery. A small
group of monks escaped
and built a surviving mon-
astery in India, where
ancient Tibetan culture and
traditions live on.

Is America now to become
the land of the free (load-
er)?

Some Democrat big-wigs
have sworn to wipe out
daytime talk radid. (First
Amendment?) Do so, kid-
dies, and we'll vote you out
next go 'round!

Now that the tumult and
shouting are over, wasn't it
the public's low rating of
George W. Bush that elect-
ed Obama?
