Rail station

full steam

ahead
ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

A commuter rail stop in
Winter Park has survived
another round of volleys be-
tween the city and the Or-
ange County Commission
over arguments of breach of
contract and invisible fund-
ing.
In the tightest vote the
city has seen on the conten-
tious commuter rail issue,
Winter Park's City Com-
mission voted 3-2 Monday
to maintain a cooperative
agreement with the county
to help fund a rail station in
Central Park.
The vote hinged on the
belief that $3 million in
funding would be available
to help fund the system on
the city and county's behalf.
Commissioner Beth Dil-
laha had argued that the
county had been "deceitful"
toward the city by withhold-
ing information about fund-
ing sources, and she moved
to kill the city's agreement
with the county in lieu of a
better contract.
Monday's meeting was
the finalization of a special
meeting last Thursday when
the Commission discussed

Winter Park mayoral race kicks off


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF


One man is saying Winter Park is
headed in the wrong direction, and
another is hoping to build on his ac-
complishments in a second mayoral
term. Both are' vying for the Winter
Park Mayor's seat in the upcoming
March 10 election.
Mayor David Strong will be seeking
his second term on the dais after un-
seating Kip Marchman in 2006. Chal-
lenging Strong is Ken Bradley, admin-
istrator of Florida Hospital Winter
Park.
"I think we're in the middle of
some things I'd like to see through to
fruition," Strong said of his reasons
for seeking reelection.
In his third year as mayor, Strong
has presided over an expansion of
Central Park to take over a former
parking lot, while championing con-
trolled growth in other areas.


Bradley


Strong


He also helped the recent election
of Commissioners Phil Anderson and
Beth Dillaha, two leaders who have
brought to fruition Strong's promise.
to have a Commission of individual
voices. All five city commissioners are
in their first term.
"We're rarely in lockstep on any-
thing," Strong said. "Sometimes it re-
sults in some debate, which is always
civil."
But with economic conditions
souring around the nation, Bradley
said that's the biggest priority, and
an issue on which he said Strong has
fallen short.


Patricia M. Fox has thrown her hat into the
ring to be the next mayor of Maitland, a
position currently held by first-term Mayor
Doug Kinson. .
She currently serves on the city', Senior
Citizens Advisory and Personnel boards.
Check out next week's Observer for
a chance to get to know the Maitland
candidates in the March 10 election.
"I've had many citizens come to me
and say the city's headed in the wrong
direction and I want to be a strong
mayor to take it another direction,"
Bradley said.

man of the Winter Park Chamber of

The "crown jewel" of Win-
ter Park architect James
Gamble Rogers' works has
earned a spot on the Na-
tional Register of Historic
Places.
Built in 1933, the Rob-
ert Bruce Barbour House,
more commonly known as
"Casa Feliz," is recognized as
the pre-eminent residential
design executed by Rogers.
The new designation lends
it even more prestige, said
Betsey Owens, director of
the Friends of Casa Feliz, the
nonprofit group that man-
ages the city-owned home.
"A lot of people think his
residential style helped de-
fine the city," Owens said.
"It's the crown jewel in his
portfolio of homes."
Last spring, the Friends
hired architectural histo-
rian Debra McClane to pre-
pare the application, which
evolved into 50 pages' worth
of background information,
photographs and plans.
Luckily, McClane knew a lit-
tle about the house already,
having co-authored with
her husband, Patrick, "The
Architecture of James Gam-
ble Rogers II in Winter Park,
Florida" in 2004.
Getting the designation


was never a sure bet. In
2000, threatened by demo-
lition, Casa Feliz was moved
900 feet to the west of its
original location. That risky
move could have disquali-
fied the house, McClane
said.
"In the National Register
world, it needs to be moved
to a place that recreates the
original setting. Luckily, the
context of the building re-
ally didn't change," she said,
commending the preserva-
tionists and city officials.
The home also has a spot
on the Winter Park Register
of Historic Places.
"The national registry
listing just underscores Casa
Feliz's importance," said
Lindsay Hayes, senior plan-
ner in the city's Planning
and Community Develop-
ment Department.
Rogers' attention to de-
tail was what made his work
so renown in the first place,
McClane said. "It didn't
matter what style he did,
he always had these little
details, ones that would set
the house off from houses
around it."
The.original owner of the
house, Owens said, used to
call it "Winter Park's parlor"
because so many commu-
nity events took place there.
When the house changed
owners, that tradition fad-

ed. "Now it really has been
restored to being the Winter
Park parlor and having this
designation makes it that
much more special."
Today, the grounds
abound with small- wed-
dings and events.
"I just love the place,"
Hayes said. "Thinking back
over the years, we weren't
sure we could have pulled
this off ... I'm so glad it

Layoffs hit Electronic Arts studio


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

Electronic Arts' Tiburon vid-
eo-game studio in Maitland
laid off an unspecified num-
ber of workers and initiated


a hiring freeze this week, a
company spokesman said.
Craig Hagen, EA's direc-
tor of Governmental Affairs
for North America, said the
layoffs are part of a compa-
nywide move announced in
December to reduce operat-


ing costs and consolidate fa-
cilities. Ten percent, or about
1,000 filled and unfilled po-
sitions, were trimmed from
the work force worldwide.
"At Tiburon, there were
employees who were laid
off unfortunately," Hagen


said, declining to say how
many and if they were of-
fered severance packages.
He would not comment on
if another round of layoffs is
expected.
The maker of games such
as the "Madden NFL" and


"Tiger Woods PGA Tour" se-
ries, Tiburon is one of two
flagship studios within the
EA Sports label. The Mai-
tland location employed
about 700 people before
this week's layoffs.


Interviewing experience crucial in foul economy


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

As unemployment rises in Orlando,
it's even more difficult to land a job
interview, let alone a job.
If a person is fortunate enough
to get that first interview, he or she
may lack the experience needed to
have a successful result. Some re-
cently unemployed folks may not
have interviewed in years, even de-
cades, said Lisa Maile, 25-year com-
munications and image expert and
owner of Maitland-based Lisa Maile
Seminars & Coaching.
"We spend months practicing for
a sporting event but no time prac-
ticing for an interview," Maile said.
Recently Maile, who has worked
with everyone from politicians to
Miss Americas, was recruited to
speak to the Central Florida Parale-


gal Association, many members of
which were recently laid off. What
was originally slated to be a private
event was opened to the public
when Maile and Association board
member Theresa Thomas realized
how far-reaching the need was for
good presentation and interview-
ing skills.
"There are just so many people
out there that are unemployed,"
Thomas said, "and if we could
spread the word to people about
this opportunity - the seminar - a
lot of people might benefit."
"A New You, New Year: Nail That
Job Interview," will be held from
5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 6, at
The Mall at Millenia, which has do-
nated space for the event.
Proceeds from the $25 admis-
sion will go to Winter Park-based
Dress for Success Greater Orlando,


"A New You, New Year: Nail That
Job Interview," hosted by the Central
Florida Paralegal Association and suc-
cess coach Lisa Maile, will be held from
5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 6, at
The Mall at Millenia Community Room,
4200 Conroy Road in Orlando. Pro-
ceeds from the $25 admission benefit

which outfits and coaches disad-
vantaged women. The president of
the nonprofit, Maria Mendel, will
also speak.
"Really now more than ever


women are going to need the help
of our organization because of the
economic downturn," Mendel said.
"Lisa's advice is invaluable."
Maile hopes that after the semi-
nar, attendees will be at ease with
the interviewing process.
"There are too many really
skilled, talented professionals who,
once they get a job, can be incred-
ible, but they just don't know how
to sell themselves," she said.
With the proceeds, Dress for
Success, based at Winter Park Tech,
plans to purchase business suits and
career supplies. They "suited" 645
women in 2008, and want to suit
more than 700 this yea.-.
"To me there's no better charity
than helping those to help them-
selves," Maile said. "You are helping
them but you're also helping their
families."

Bradley refused the label of pro-

tion with those entities.
That includes the movement
to build a commuter rail system in
Central Florida and to build a sta-


tion in.Winter Park, the completion
of which Bradley accused Strong of
helping delay.
Strong, who Monday voted to let
a commuter rail funding agreement
with Orange County move forward,
said that he hopes his record will
convince voters to keep him in of-
fice for another three years.
"I certainly don't expect every-
one to vote for me, but I expect
there to be a good debate out there,"
he said. "I think we've done well in
the last three years. I'd like to con-
tinue that."

Carr, Riggs & Ingram, a CPA firm,
merged with the Maitland firm Fels-
ing Rankin on Jan. 1. The addition
of Felsing Rankin's eight accountants
brings CRI's total employee roster to
more than 480, including 355 profes-
sionals of which 85 are partners. CRI
manages the accounts of more than
30,000 clients in 16 markets across
the Southeast.
Palmer Electric Co. has promoted
Ronald G. Howard Jr. to manager of

has been selected to serve one of
its snacks at the Super Bowl Tail-
gate Party on Feb. 1 in Tampa. The
snack will be concocted from more
than 500 pounds of organic fruits, nuts
and dark chocolate. This is the second

Community


Rotary International's Orlando district has raised more
than $55,000 to help eradicate polio worldwide, said
Carlos Giraldo, district governor of Rotary International in
Orlando.
The Orlando district plans to host a fundraising event and
is studying several options, including a gala big band dance
night, Giraldo added. For more information, contact Carlos
H. Giraldo at 407-376-5368.

On Thursday, Jan. 22 Audubon Park Elementary School
and Orange County Public Schools hosted a high-tech,
interactive classroom demonstration for the community.
Teacher Brittany Heidrich led her fifth grade science class
in a lesson on the solar system utilizing the Promethean
Activboard and Activexpressions, also known as an interac-
tive whiteboard.
The interactive whiteboard is able to capture students'
attention by its accessibility to images and video/audio clips
that can be viewed from every corner of the classroom. The
user has a pen to interface with the software, much like a
mouse to a computer. Lessons are developed as flip charts,
much like live PowerPoint presentations.
Audubon Park Elementary now has 15 Activboards, seven
of which were paid for by the fund raising of the students'
parents, totaling $10,000.


Fifth-graders at Audubon Park Elementary in Winter Park test
out their new interactive whiteboard on Thursday, Jan. 22.

Kelly Branham, a resident of Winter Park, has been

RAIL.I Majority of Commission agrees to go forward

how to handle the county,
which was stonewalling
on the city's demands for
changes in their funding
agreement.
"They basically said that
our concerns are of no con-
cern to them, and that we
should basically go pound
sand," Dillaha said. "And I
have an issue with that."
She feared that pledged
federal and state money,
necessary for the city to
go forward with building a
rail.station, may not mate-
rialize, leaving the city and
county to foot the bill.
"Look at Tri-Rail - after


21 years there's not a dedi-
cated funding source," she
said. "Look at Lynx - still no
dedicated funding source.
I don't think we should
hang our hat on the idea
that there will be a funding
source for this."
In the end, three of five
commissioners agreed that
a $3 million chunk of fund-
ing was solidly enough in
place to risk moving for-
ward with an agreement to
build the rail station.
Mayor David Strong said
that though the rail system
deal could be improved
upon, the city was in a safe
enough position to move
forward with the deal.
"Is [the agreement with

Orange County] as clear as it
could be? No," he said. "But
it's clear enough to keep our
options open for later."
That includes an opt-out
clause that would allow the
city to cease funding the
system after 2017.
In the meantime, the city
is putting the ball back in
the county's court to move
forward, with a rail system
waiting in the future.
Strong remains positive,
despite the obstacles.
"I think we could have
done a lot better in our rap-
id transit system, but this is
what the county and FDOT
have agreed to and we've
got to make it work as best
we can," he said.

didn't reach that limit by December 31, 2008, tell your
bank or IRA trustee that your 2009 contributions are for
2008 until either (a) you reach the dollar limit or (b) the
April 15 contribution deadline arrives. You can then deduct
these amounts on your 2008 return for a quicker tax benefit.

Winter Park launches
new look for Web site
The city of Winter Park
launched a new design for
its official city Web site at
CityofWinterPark.org. Web
users will notice an impres-
sive change in the look and
user-friendliness of the
city's most comprehensive
communications tool.
Winter Park gained valu-
able feedback from the Web
survey conducted in June
2008. The use of more screen
space, photography, visual
buttons, main headings and
quick drop-down menus al-
lows users to navigate the
site more efficiently.
The comprehensive con-
tent has been kept intact
and is categorized in a simi-
lar fashion as on the previ-
ous site. The new design of
the site organizes all city
information into six easy-
to-find categories: Visitors,
Residents, Government, De-
partments, Media and Em-
ployment.
The city continually
looks for ways to keep the
site fresh and user-friendly.
One new fresh feature offers
RSS feeds to various areas of
the site, which will provide
immediate information to
interested users as those
particular sections are up-
dated.
Log on to the newly-
designed Web site at Cit-
yofWinterPark.org to learn


more about Winter Park
and the valuable programs,
meetings, events and activi-
ties it has to offer.

Casa Feliz on National
City installs bike racks Historic Register
throughout Winter Park- The city of Winter Park is
The city of Winter Park has, pleased to announce that


the Robert Bruce Barbour
House, better known locally
as "Casa Feliz," was officially
listed in the National Reg-
ister of Historic Places on
Dec. 31. Listing in the Na-
tional Register honors the
property by recognizing its
outstanding historic signifi-
cance.
The nomination to the
National Register was spon-
sored by the Friends of Casa
Feliz who manage and main-
tain this city-owned historic
landmark. Designed by ar-
chitect James Gamble Rog-
ers II, and built in 1933 for
inventor and manufacturer
Robert Bruce Barbour, Casa
Feliz was recognized for its
importance as an outstand-
ing example of Spanish
Eclectic style architecture
and as the pre-eminent resi-
dential design executed by
Rogers.
In 2000, Casa Feliz was
threatened by demolition.
Supported by the City Com-
mission, local preservation-
ists joined forces to save this
landmark and the 750-ton
building was moved to its
current location just 900
feet west of its original site.
Guided by the original blue-
prints and historic photo-
graphs, Rogers' son John
"Jack" H. Rogers, a noted
architect in his own right,
led the exceptional effort to
restore the building. Highly
skilled craftsmen and arti-
sans returned the. building
to its 1933 condition. In ad-
dition to serving as a house
museum with regular visit-
ing hours, Casa Feliz also
plays host to public meet-
ings and private events.

It's an exciting time in the
city of Maitland, and as I
look forward to what the
future offers, I can't help
but reflect on the rich his-
tory that has made Maitland
what it is today. So rich in
history and culture, the city
of Maitland offers residents
many opportunities to ex-
plore the historical roots of
the city we call home.
Many people don't know
that this area was once
called Fumecheliga (Musk-
melon Place) by the Semi-
nole Indians before it was
established as Fort Maitland
in 1838 by the U.S. Army.
The fort was named after
Captain William Seton Mait-
land, a hero of the Seminole
Wars. What is now Maitland
Avenue was part of the Old
Black Bear Trail, which ran


from Montreal, Canada, to
St. Petersburg and passed by
the fort.
When the Indian wars
ceased and the fort had
been torn down, people be-
-gan settling in this area be-
cause of the natural spring
water and extensive pine
forests. At the close of the
Civil War, settlers came
buying large tracts of land,
clearing them, and planting
citrus groves. The first deed
for property in the city was
written in 1873 to George
H. Packwood who built a
large hall for town meetings
and social gatherings. Pack-
wood Hall, since burned
down, was located where
City Hall now stands.
By 1876, the orange trees
were coming into produc-
tiqn and difficulty in mar-


keting the fruit caused Dr.
Haskell, of the Boston Her-
ald Newspaper, to form a
syndicate and construct a
railroad from Jacksonville
to Maitland. This was com-
pleted in Maitland in 1880,
and for several years, Mait-
land had an ice factory, two
livery stables, and besides
the citrus groves, a large
packing house in the center
of town. As many as 300,000
boxes of fruit were shipped
each season. In 1881, the
property known as "Under-
Oaks" at the end of Oak-
leigh Drive was built by Wil-
liam Waterhouse just prior
to his building his home at
Lake Lily.
The city was incorporat-
ed as the Town of Lake Mai-
tland in 1885. In the 1950s,
the space age had the eyes
of the nation on Central
Florida. The Martin Mariet-
ta Corporation moved from
Baltimore to Orlando. Fam-
ilies were moved down in
contingents of two or three
hundred at a time. Due to its
proximity to the plant, Mait-
land became a natural place
for them to come. In 1959,
a new City Charter.changed
the name from Lake Mai-
tland to Maitland. In the
1960s, Maitland Avenue and
Orlando Avenue (U.S. High-
way 17-92) came alive with


building construction. Su-
permarkets opened, as did
restaurants, service stations,
'condominiums, garden
apartments and churches.
Even though the nation
was in a recession, the ar-
rival of Disney World to the
Orlando area in 1971 had a
strong impact on the con-
tinuous growth of Maitland.
New buildings were sorely
needed and numerous older
buildings were demolished,
including those on the site
of the current City Hall, and
the fire and police depart-
ments. A new Municipal
Complex was completed in
1975.
Today, our city is part and
parcel to all of our commu-
nity partners who work so
hard to create a better qual-
ity of life for all of our resi-
dents. The end result.of their
efforts and the effort of the
great people in our city is
the multitude of offerings
for our residents. There is
something for every mem-
ber of the family. to enjoy.
Don't miss the opportunity
to attend one of our many
events, including:

Super Bowl in the Park
Come watch the "big game"
on our 40-foot high-defini-
tion screen at 5:30 p.m. at

Are you ready for some


WHITNEY HAMRICK
GUEST REPORTER

It's time for Orange County families to
break out the nachos, burgers and hot
dogs, soda, beer and the occasional fruit
salad. The Pittsburgh Steelers face off Sun-
day, Feb. 1 against the Arizona Cardinals for
Super Bowl XLIUI, just across Interstate 4, in
Tampa.
Many use the Super Bowl as a chance to
invite friends and family over to the house
and churn out delicious snacks such as a
seven-layer dip. But if the kitchen does not
prove to be your domain or staying home
fails to pique your interest, here's what's
going on around town:
Quinn Strong Park will host a Super
Bowl party sponsored by the city of Mait-
land. The event will feature a 40-feet-by-
40-feet projector screen in high definition
provided by Bright House Networks, which
will also providean on-hand technician to
make sure everything works properly for
an uninterrupted Super Bowl.
"The greens will be vibrant green and the
blues will be extremely blue, and you'll be
able to see every hair; it's wonderful," said


Mari Smith, event planner and community
coordinator with the city of Maitland.
"It's the same feeling as drive-in the-
atres," Smith said. "The same wonderful
experiences out in the open, in the ele-
ments and watch a huge screen. It's a real
family tie, mothers, fathers, children, no
age limit."
Venders will provide hot dogs, sausages
and pulled pork sandwiches, but visitors
are welcome to bring their own food tail-
gater-style.
Patrons are encouraged to bring blan-
kets and folding chairs according to their
comfort. "I had people bring a tablecloth
and candelabra one year," Smit_ baid.
The event sprang from -At!jvies in
the park program started by lnd two
years ago at Lake Lily. Thezi gan has
moved to Quinn Strong Parkwhere the Su-
per Bowl party will be held tiL:ear.
"We had a lot of peopre4i0liig leading
up to this to see if we we gong to do it
again," Smith said. "A lOtof people were
here last year. Bright HFuse wasn't sure
if we were going to be able to do this, but
they were able to pull trough for us."
Other options include.:
The Copper Rocket Ptub, locatedon 106
Lake Ave. in Maitland,d iS geared more to-;
ward adults for a more traditional Super
Bowl atmosphere... -
"We're doing $4 pitchers and fiee wings
for the entire gamn;" employee Martin
Cranage said. "Come ovirer, hang &Ot*drink
a beer and watch the game.-Jthlihk that's;
what people want to do."
Beef '0' Brady's Family S jortui-b, 1Q-4

The Dreaded Seven-Layer Dip
Realistically it doesn't matter what seven items you put in
a seven-layer dip, but the principle traditionally follows a
southwestern flare which includes: refried beans, salsa, gua-
camole, scallions, diced tomato, sour cream and handfuls of
cheese. Start with a Pean base in a casserole dish and work
the layers up to the cheese in whatever order you like.
If interested in the healthy track, consider vegetarian refried
beans, fat free sour cream and low sodium cheese. For the
guacamole, a simple method to make it at home would be to
mash two large avocados with a tablespoon of lemon juice,
then season with black pepper and powdered garlic.

Inside-Out Burgers
- If you prefer your food in your mouth rather than dripping
down the front of your fan T-shirt than try this simple burger
recipe on for size: You will heed dinner rolls, ground meat of
your choices, one whole onion and one bell pepper.
Sautee the onion and bell pepper till caramelized. Make eight
palm-sized patties, place a tablespoon of the onion and bell
pepper on to one patty then take another and press the edges
around the filling to seal it, do so four times. Season with your
favorite spices then place the patties in the same pan you
cooked the onions. Cook all the way through.

Football Pizza
Preheat the oven for 450 degrees. If you can't find pizza
dough, use the ready:made frozen pie crusts. Allow the
dough to defrost, take it out of the wrapping and roll it out
with a rolling pin into an oval then place onto a baking sheet.
Take your favorite toppings and arrange them to look like a
football. Place in the oven for 10 to 15 minutes. Please note
that the pie crust may have different instructions for the
cooking process.

Dying for what?


When you're wounded
and left
On Afghanistan's plains
And the women come out
To cut up what remains
Jest roll to your rifle and
blow
Out your brains
An'go to your Gawd like
a soldier.
- Rudyard Kipling, "The Young
British Soldier," 1892

From one rattrap of a hell-
hole called Iraq to another
called Afghanistan. That
is what President Obama
has in store for America.
Instead of wisely abandon-
ing the Islamic world to
fester in its own fetid juices
of religious depravity and
10th century fundamental-
ism, Obama has pledged to
move any troops exiting
Iraq to Afghanistan, an an-
cient civilization. And, oh,
woe be to America.
I use the word civiliza-
tion lightly. Afghanistan is
a collection of disparate
tribes that have historically
consumed one another,
only unifying to resist any
invader foolish enough to
attempt an occupation.


This nation allowed sixth
century works of art, the
Buddhas of Bamyan, carved
into rock cliffs and tower-
ing 180 feet and 121 feet
respectively, one-of-a-kind
art treasures of the world,
to be shot to pieces by the
Taliban. Target practice.
I could list page upon
page of recent atrocities
committed by Afghans
against their own people,
against their own culture.
Whole segments of the
population (men) consider
women expendable and
not worthy of education.
The Taliban have targeted
girls' schools for destruc-
tion. They throw acid on
the faces of young school-
girls to intimidate them not
to attend classes.
For anyone harbor-
ing hope for Afghanistan,
please rent the DVD movie
titled, "Osama." It is, bar
none, the most heart
wrenching, sad, sad movie
I have seen in a decade. It
captures in horrid detail
the results of combining re-
ligious extremism and men.
Afghanistad is all about
men. From my perspec-


tive, the society is barbaric.
Any culture that relegates
women to second-class sta-
tus - in the name of God
no less - is barbaric. And as
Bismark said, is "not worth
the bones of Pomeranian
grenadier." Or one Ameri-
can soldier.
If I were God for a day,
I'd give every Afghan wom-
an a 45-caliber pistol and
50 rounds with the instruc-
tions of, "Do what feels just.
Do the right thing." And the
cemeteries filled.
Oh, it is argued, America
has to invade and occupy
Afghanistan because that
country was used to host
training camps for the
attacks of Sept. 11. OK,
we've blown up the camps,
made the Taliban go un-
derground or across the
border into Pakistan, now
what? What do you, Mr.
and Ms. America think the
United States is going to
accomplish in that nation,
a nation where men will-
ingly (with religious fervor)
throw acid into the faces of
its young women?
Oh, we're going to bring
the blessings of Democ-
racy and stability to that
poor, poor nation of opium
growing, women-hating
scum. Yea, you bet we are.
Just a few more troops
and we'll secure the coun-
try - 30,000 more troops is
the number being bandied
around. As a start. And our
goal is? We'll know we've
"won" when what occurs?
Our exit strategy is we'll
leave when "X" is achieved
(you fill in what "X" might
be). Folks, we are dupes; we


are fools if we expand our
presence in that nation.
Our boys will die for what?
So President Hamid Karzai
can travel five miles out of
Kabul and claim he is the
leader of the entire nation.
So his corrupt government
can what? Be corrupt in the
suburbs, too?
Sure, there are, undoubt-
edly, good, decent people in
Afghanistan who share our
(Western) values and are
educated, liberal, tolerant
and peaceful. People who
enjoy art and literature and
have high, wonderful aspi-
rations for their children,
their daughters, too. So
what.
I am sorry (it is tragic)
that they have arrived in
life and find themselves
living in a larger culture
of uneducated, religious
zealots (men) who cherish
their God more than they
do their women. And Amer-
ica is supposed to do what
about any of this? Invade
and occupy a pit, a region
of depraved men, wave our
magic wand of freedom,
sprinkle a little "pixie dust"
of democracy, sing a few
bars of "God Bless America"
and what? What are we do-
ing?
It is as if no one reads
history. We are different?
America is different from
Great Britain or the former
Soviet Union? We are go-
ing to succeed with our
occupation of Afghanistan
when those two super pow-
ers could not. We have bet-
ter military leadership, bet-
ter troops, better planning,
more will, more stamina


and more determination
than either the Russians
or the Brits demonstrated?
We know more? But we
have justice and truth on
our side! We are America
after all! Are we nuts? What
makes Americans so blind
to the limitations of wars of
invasion and occupation?
But, but, everyone says
we have to stay in Afghani-
stan. I say, you want Amer-
ica to be in Afghanistan,
then "you" be in Afghani-
stan. Just you. Take your
sons or grandsons and go
fight for "X." You remem-
ber "X." That's why we are
in Afghanistan. Go there
and fight the good fight,
just you, and when they
ship your grandson's body
back wearing a medal on
his dead chest, stand a little
taller knowing your child
died for "X." And when
America inevitably leaves,
just like Britain and Russia
and Alexander the Great,
and the Afghanistan zealots
are once again in control
of their little hellhole of a
country, remember that our
good sons didn't die in vain
for a worthless goal, they
died for "X."
But you know what?
They will be just as dead.
'Leave the Middle East.
Now.

Letters to


Dillaha: Citizens deserve
clarity on rail deal
"Spell out the deal before
you start." This Warren Buf-
fet quotes comes to mind
when discussing Winter
Park's negotiation with
Orange County regarding
the proposed Commuter
Rail project. The 99-year
deal calls for Winter Park
taxpayers to pay the county
for construction of our sta-
tion whether the promised
$3 million in federal funds
appear or not. And, the deal
provides questionable op-
portunity for the city to
"opt out" of paying an an-
nual operating deficit for
the system should the city
be unable to afford it.
We know that, without a
dedicated permanent fund-
ing source (more taxes),
Winter Park taxpayers are
expected to pay for a por-
tion of the state's bond
debt service - $340 million
according to FDOT - for
purchase of the tracks and
for relocating CSX freight
activities. Winter Park's
share is more than $11
million. This arrangement
would be comparable to
Winter Park taxpayer dol-


lars funding the expansion
of Interstate-4.
The second bucket
consists of annual operat-
ing deficits to finance the
system and subsidize ad-
ditional Lynx buses. Winter
Park's annual payments
for these deficits are open-
ended and unlimited. The
first year estimate is about
$700,000, a highly optimis-
tic guess according to na-
tional averages. But there's
more. Winter Park residents
get to pay twice: as taxpay-
ers of Orange County and
as Winter Park taxpayers.
Volusia, Osceola and Semi-
nole counties are covering
these costs for their cities
with stations. Why not Or-
ange County?
Winter Park is treated as
a Central Florida Funding
Partner in the project when
it comes to paying the tab
but treated as the flea on
the tail of the dog when it
comes to having a say in
what goes on. We do not
have a voice on the Com-
muter Rail Commission.
The state should legis-
late a sustained funding
source for all rail and mass
transit projects and not


expect Winter Park and
counties to scramble for
funding sources. Taxpayers
should demand an outside
limitation on any subsidy
that would be required
from their wallets. No open
checkbook, thank you. And
it is obvious that any sta-
tion capital costs should
be fully expressed, limited
and articulated in a bind-
ing agreement. To do less,
puts our taxpayers - and
our financial future - at
risk. This is no time to play
poker with taxpayer dollars
by taking risks that cannot
be defined.
And it is no time to strap
future city commissioners
with the task of working
their way out of a financial
black hole we created.
- Beth Dillaha
Winter Park city commissioner

Citizens save the best
of Winter Park
Congratulations to Winter
Park's Casa Feliz, which is
now officially listed on the
National Register of His-
toric Places.
Ten years ago this home
was slated to be demol-
ished. In 2000, a citizen


group led by architect Jack
Rogers envisioned the
benefits of rescuing and
preserving this historic
building. They educated
the public, raised money
and moved the 750-ton
structure across the street,
and restoration began.
Walk into Casa Feliz today
and you will see a beautiful,
self-sustaining entity that
hosts scores of meetings,
weddings and receptions
and serves as a year-round
public museum.
Winter Park's citizens
have a history of rescu-
ing precious pieces of its
legacy. In the 1990s, citizen
involvement led to the ac-
quisition of the Winter Park
Golf Course. When it was
announced that the land
might be sold and devel-
oped into housing tracts,
the public persuaded the
city to buy the land.
To that end, Winter Park
citizens approved an $8
million bond. This bond,
which seemed enormous
at the time, will soon be
retired. Think how differ-
ent Winter Park would look
without this beautiful green
course that weaves its way


through our city.
A more recent example
of citizen intervention
was halting Broad Street
Partners from building the
four-story Carlisle project
on the post office site. Many
citizens who viewed the ar-
chitectural model became
alarmed at the project's
size. The Villages at Lake
Lily, under construction at
17-92 and Lake Avenue in
Maitland is very close in
dimensions to the planned
Carlisle. Now imagine that
building on New York Av-
enue, a two-lane street.
Today, Winter Park holds
an option on the post of-
fice property and has the
opportunity to plan for its
future use.
Preservation of valued
property creates a more
beautiful and interesting
community, which in turn
stabilizes property values
and promotes destination
tourism. If you haven't
visited Casa Feliz, it's open
Sunday, from noon to 3
p.m. There is no admission
fee to enjoy this beautifully
protected and beloved trea-
sure in Winter Park.

Obama's
hubristic spiel
Ever since George Soros'
several-day Phoenix meet-
ing of super-rich geniuses
some years back, I have
waited for the connective
tissue behind Soros' machi-
nations to reveal itself.
Soros' meeting's title was
"Karl Marx," a surprising
subject for a bunch of boss-
es of material wealth.
Since then a smidgen of
direction has revealed itself
in the fervent secular faith
of the Democratic Party.
Connective tissue leads
us philosophically to Ba-
rack Obama's narcissistic
faith, the prime force that
has propelled this until-


recently unknown man to
become our president.
Salem Web Network's
Ben Shapiro writes:
"Obama's hubris... will lead
him to shift blame for his
inevitable failures onto the
shoulders of the American
people."
Shapiro thinks this pro-
cess has already begun and
that if Obama strikes out,
he will blame the particu-
lar citizens who refuse to
admit "that the stale po-
litical arguments that have
consumed us for so long no
longer apply."
If our economy contin-
ues to shrivel, as it probably
will under Obama's "new
New Deal," Obama will put
the blame on our contin-
ued "collective failure to
make hard choices and pre-
pare the nation for a new
age."
Obama echoes former
President Jimmy Carter's
overt distrust of the Ameri-
can public. At his inaugura-
tion, Obama stated, "... no
less profound is a sapping
of confidence across our
land - a nagging fear that
America's decline is in-
evitable, and that the next
generation must lower its
sights." These words bring
to mind Carter's words of
doubt, regarding an Ameri-
can "crisis of confidence...
a crisis that strikes at the
very heart and soul and
spirit of our national will."
Shapiro later says: "... the


only commentators who
have posited the inevitabil-
ity of American decline are
Obama and his support-
ers. As Obama puts it, 'the
world has changed, and we
must change with it.'"
If Obama plans to "re-
make America" after the
European model, and
should fail - as we hope
it will - Shapiro states,
"Obama's grandiose self-
involvement and blustering
pomposity will lead him to
condemn the very Ameri-
cans who elected him."
Obama's "transformational
moment" will be revealed
in the light of truth. Sha-
piro concludes, "It will be-
come obvious that Obama's
election was Americans'
superfluous attempt to
move beyond race, not a
broad mandate to.remold
the country. And Obama
will learn the hard way that
while Americans will never
fail, presidents can." Such
African-American intel-
ligentsia as Michael Steele,
Thomas Sowell and Juan
Williams don't buy Obama's
spiel. Each has considered
the "Obama phenomenon"
at length, and has come to
quite different conclusions.
Shapiro explains: "De-
spite his protestations to
the contrary, Obama has no
faith in Americans; instead,
he wishes to change our
hearts of stone for hearts
of flesh...'" The U.S. is the
most sharing country in


modern history. Still, the
subject that grabs most of
Obama & Company's con-
cern seems to be a further
sharing of our wealth. Kin-
ship to the Marxist Dialec-
tic leads us back to Phoe-
nix, and ultimately, to Karl
Marx and Friedrich Engels
in their English exile.
In the end, is Obama's
unconditional generosity
not a sure path to irrespon-
sibility? First, let him seek a
responsible dollar. Without
that, our future is quick-
sand. Bailouts should cease;
let badly managed corpora-
tions fail. Such concepts are
features of American "free
enterprise." Healthy busi-
ness involves inherent risk
and, at the end of the line,
the possibility of both win-
ning and losing.
The U.S. government has
no business guaranteeing
the success of private en-
terprise. Does it make any
sense for public money to
bail out banks, automobile-
manufacturers, airlines or
insurance companies? If so,
how do we dare favor one
company over the other for
rescuing - doesn't morality
go flying out the window?
And is there any equitable
recompense for the sacri-
fice of our nation's charac-
ter? What do we stand for
anyway?
Barack Obama's trans-
parent scheme would in-
clude getting more than 50
percent of American voters


into the list of unemployed
non-taxpayers. Very clever,
my dear Watson!
How is the other side
ever to come up with a vot-
ing majority? If Obama's
ruse should work, the Re-
publican Party might, for
all intents and purposes, go
out of business.
A blatantly Socialistic
Democratic Party could
then literally rule the U.S.
European countries used
to try to imitate the pros-
perous United States. Now,
we seem to imitate France,
a country most of us would
not trade for our own.
Self-confidence should
guide us toward follow-
ing our own star as we did
under Ronald Reagan. Can
we trust Obama to take on
some of Reagan's positive
qualities? To date, Obama
has shown in word-and
deed not a hint of Reagan's
resolution or courage to
heed our founders' clearly
stated high ideals.
Judging from the qual-
ity of the people who have
come out of Obama's Chi-
cago neighborhood, is it
reasonable that we expect
him to be another Lincoln?
We would love to hive
faith in Obama. But first we
must know what Power he
believes in outside himself
- "a person all wrapped-
up in himself makes a very
small package."
