Ready to rumble, Winter Park mayoral candidates Ken Bradley and David Strong shake hands before their first candidate fo-
rum, which happened at the city'sUniversity House Tuesday night. They debated topics from finance to dog training.

Jabs and jokes flew as two
men tried to sell them-
selves as the next big thing
in Winter Park on Tuesday
night. The first candidate
forum between Mayor Da-
vid Strong and challenger
Ken Bradley kept a packed
University Club main hall
locked on the candidates as
they pulled few punches.


On issues ranging from
the .budget to unwanted
dog fertilizer in Central
Park, the candidates found
little common ground and
much to trade blows on in
the one-hour forum.
Bradley, administrator
at Winter Park Hospital,
immediately started in on
his opponent by asking the
audience the question: "Is
Winter Park better off than
it was three years ago?"

Patricia M. Fox surprised a
lot of-people when she en-

Maitland mayor last month.
She said she couldn't let
first-term Mayor Doug Kin-
son run unopposed.
"It's not personal," Fox
said. "People are unhappy
and we need to address
that."
Kinson said he is glad she
entered the race. "I'm ex-
cited about the cuimpaign."
he said. "I've always been
a believer that candidates
shouldn't run unopposed."
During his three-year
term, Kinson said he's gotten
the Council through a num-
ber of difficult decisions, in-
cluding approving plans for
SunRail and the Maitland
town center and install-
ing a new city manager. He
has also been a consensps-
builder, steering Council
away from split votes.

Wildcats end year on rollercoaster


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The Wildcats have felt more
pain in the past two weeks
than they have all season,
losing three games of the
last six heading into the
start of the week. But they
bounced back strong, with
eyes on the postseason.
The first drop in the
bucket came against Boyd
Anderson during the Martin


Luther King Classic at Jones
High school, when they fell
by a slim 66-60 margin.
Four days later Olympia
compounded the hurt by
giving the Cats their first los-
ing streak of the year thanks
to a second 66-60 loss in a
row.
But the Cats bounced
back with a vengeance Jan.
23 against Timber Creek. In
front of their home crowd


for the first time in more
than a week, the Wildcats
unleashed one of their big-
gest offensive performances
of the year in a 71-41 slaugh-
ter of the Wolves.
But riding on the high of
that euphoric win, they had
to travel to Dr. Phillips the
next night, where they suf-
fered a 61-48 loss.
The emotional roller
coaster headed back toward


the sky in the last week,
when a close 56-53 win
against Lake Howell and a
crushing 60-47 win over ri-
val Boone put the Cats in a
good mindset for a Tuesday
night showdown at Edge-
water at press time.
Friday night they'll be on
the court against Univer-
sity, in what could be the
start of a sweet finish for the
Cats, who entered this week


16-6.
The last time they played
-the Cougars, the Cats won
62-45. With Austin Riv-
ers continuing to average
nearly 23 points per game,
and Adam Jones and Rob-
ert Lovaglio averaging more
than seven rebounds per
game, the Cats are poised for
a strong playoff run head-
ing into the postseason in
March.

Baldwin Park
Community Update'
BY PAT J-OtES-PETRICK


Welcome to

Baldwin Park
Baldwin Park was originally estab-
lished in 2001 on the site of the Or-
lando Naval Training Center. The
transformation of the Orlando Na-
val Training Center.has by no means
been a small undertaking. Baldwin
Park is a traditional neighborhood
development that is located on
1,100 acres with 4,300 residen-
tial units, 1 million square feet of
commercial space and over 200
acres of parks. It is often referred
to as "Mixed-use - new urbanism,"
meaning the community is conve-
niently located near the city's work
places, restaurants, area attrac-
tions, cultural venues and sports
arenas. This allows for easy access
for its residents and merchants as
well as visitors wanting to conduct


commerce within Baldwin Park.
Not only does Baldwin Park offer
a variety of housing accommoda-
tions, luxury single-family homes,
condos and apartments, it also has
many unique shops, waterfront
dining, and service companies to
meet your everyday needs.
The Baldwin Park community
is known for supporting both the
visual and the performing arts and
tries to incorporate art into ev-
erything it does. The community
hosts the annual Baldwin Park Arts
Festival, artists painting live in the
Downtown Village Center and art-
ist showcases in both homes and
businesses, and the first Art Stroll
of Baldwin Park will be held on
April 10th in the Downtown Vil-
lage Center.

An annuity is a long-term, tax-deferred investment vehicle designed for retirement. Earnings are taxable as ordinary
income when distributed, and if withdrawn before age 591/2, may be subject to a 10% federal tax penalty. If the
annuity will fund an IRA of other tax-qualified plan, the tax-deferral feature offers no additional value. There are
charges and expenses associated with annuities, such as deferred sales charges for early withdrawals. The maximum
deferred sales charge on withdrawals is 9% decreasing over 9 years. If during the guarantee period, you make a
withdrawal, transfer or annuitize, a Market Value Adjustment (MVA) may be applied. An MVA can have a positive or
-negative impact on the value of the annuity.

residents.
"Your pocketbooks and
your wallets are at stake," he
said.
Strong opened with a
congratulation to Bradley
and an invitation to the au-
dience.
"I think it's commend-
able that anyone throws
their hat into the ring to run


for office," Strong said. "I
encourage everyone in this
room to do the same."
But Strong just as quickly
fought back against Bradley,
earning a few laughs from
the audience along the way
as he joked about his oppo-
nent's experience and fre-
quently corrected him be-
fore answering questions.
"I sympathize with Mr.
Bradley about his difficultly
grasping the facts," Strong


said, before reading down a
long list of prominent Win-
ter Park residents who he
said paid less taxes during
Strong's reign as mayor -
including Bradley.
"Mr. Bradley owned a
lot in Winter Park in 2007-
2008, and his taxes went
down 5 percent in that
time," Strong said.
Money was the name of
the game for Bradley, who
chided the inclusion of


some questions in the de-
bate as unimportant com-
pared with economic issues
pressing the city, and stayed
on the attack for most of
the debate.
"My top three priorities
are our taxes, our taxes and
our taxes," Bradley said. "My
priority is your wallets."
He admonished the City
Commission for freezing
city employee salaries in its
effort to help balance the


budget.
"I'm not in favor of bal-
ancing the budget on the
backs of our workers," Brad-
ley said.
Strong said that the bud-
get, and the city's money,
are in safe hands.
"Mr. Bradley would say
our city is imperiled, it's
in decline, but I disagree,"
Strong said. "Our city is one
of the nicest in the world."

LIQUOR I Drinking hours stay despite survey


< continued from the front page

rising rent made it necessary to stay open
longer to stay profitable. But the fight
barely began before the city stopped it.
"Only one of the five people on the
Planning and Zoning Commission voted
to even discuss it, and that was it," Her-
nandez said. "Then they started talking
about wanting to do the same for every-
where in the city."
Those curtailed drinking hours in
Hannibal Square remained despite a sur-
vey sent out by the city asking nearby
Hannibal Square residents if they would
favor extended drinking hours. Two-
thirds of responses that came back were
in favor of letting the businesses sell al-
cohol later.
Last week the City Commission passed
a new ordinance that would punish busi-
nesses for violating drinking laws by cut-
ting their alcohol sales hours back from 2
a.m. to 11 p.m., effectively curbing three
hours of sales and revenue per night.
"I understand there's probably differ-
ent perspectives on this depending on
if you're an affected business establish-
ment," Commissioner Beth Dillaha said.
Hernandez said that it's a continua-
tion of the battle that began nearly three


years ago.
"They've been trying to spread the 11
o'clock drinking hours across the city,"
he said. "They were threatening to make
all of Winter Park that way. They're pretty
much doing that now."
Dillaha said that the purpose of the
law isn't to cut back the hours of alcohol
sales, but to prevent habitually offending
businesses from continuing to sell to un-
derage drinkers.
"The intent isn't to rescind drinking
hours," she said. "It's just to, as the chief
said, 'put another tool in the tool box.'"
Hernandez isn't waiting any longer
for the alcohol sales hours to swing the
other way. Three months ago he opened
a new bar with a familiar name. Redlight
Redlight is back open for business after
vacating its dark wood decorated loft just
above the street where New England Av-
enue meets North Pennsylvania Avenue.
Now it's doing business near the Roxy
nightclub, south of Winter Park and just
out of reach of the city's drinking laws.
"We thought there was no way they
were going to keep these archaic laws,"
Hernandez said. "But we got tired of
waiting."

maintaining quality of life
and services we're all used
to," he said.
He's most proud of mak-
ing sure the citizens have
a say in their government.
"Three years ago the residents-
weren't being heard," he said.
He has since increased the
public input time at meetings,
sometimes opening the floor
to citizens more than once
on a single agenda item.
"That's key to making the
best decision possible," he
said.
But his challenger doesn't
think he's done enough.
Fox, a teacher at Edgewa-
ter High School, said all of the
citizens' voices are not being
heard and the city is not mov-
ing forward. She said it's not
the economy's fault - it's the
city government's inability to
adapt to changing times. "A
lot of things that have been
promised have -stagnated ...
It's time to stop dreaming
and look at the economy we
have today," she said.


Fox Kinson


The Concerned Citizens of Mait-
land hosts a meet-the-candidates
night at 7 p.m. Friday, Feb. 13, at
the Maitland Civic Center.
Neither pro-growth nor an-
ti-growth, Fox said she is most
interested in "doing what the
people want." As mayor, she
said she would host town hall
meetings and appoint a citi-
zen's advisory board with the
sole purpose of soliciting resi-
dent opinion on the issues.
She is brand-new to the
Maitland political scene, but
she sees that as an advantage.
"I will bring a fresh per-
spective to Council," she said.
"I don't owe anybody any-
thing."

Pp Ru T


Many years ago, the owners
of 100 Oakleigh Drive, the
oldest home in Maitland,
donated six acres to the
city for a new park. Families
throughout Central Florida
have enjoyed Minnehaha
Park for generations.
For years, much-needed
improvements to the park
were anticipated, but bud-
get after budget went by
without avail. In 2007, given
what this park means to our
community, the Maitland
City Council committed to
making this a priority. On
April 21, a rededication of
the park took place to the
delight of every resident of


our city.
Given our challenging
economic climate, it is all
but impossible to bring for-
ward new capital projects
entirely paid out of current
city revenues. So, if we are to
continue to move projects
within our city forward, we
will need to depend on and
seek every available alter-
nate revenue source.
Our thanks go out to our
partners in this important
park redevelopment effort,
which includes the Winter
Park Health Foundation
and the Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion. Completion of the im-

Initial improvements
included pavilions, board-

walking, biking and jogging
paths. We continue to be
dedicated to improving Min-

of the receipt of additional
grant dollars to complete
phase two of the project (see

Many thanks go to U.S. Con-

continued dedication- and
service to our community.
Thanks are in order as

for helping to value-engi-

Off-limits for pets
As tempting as it may be to
take your pets to any park,
section 18-14 of city code
addresses parks and recre-
ational areas where animals
are prohibited from enter-
ing.
Central Park is one such
area where pets are not al-
lowed at any time, as is the
Farmers' Market building
and patio.
Pets are prohibited in
playground areas, picnic ar-
eas and pavilions, athletic
fields and courts, and other
specific recreational areas
of all other public parks in-
cluding: '
Mead Garden
Ward Park
Cady Way
Phelps Park
Dinky Dock
Lake Island Park
Howell Branch Preserve
Orwin Manor Park
Kraft Azalea Gardens
This is primarily due to
the fact that each of these
areas house picnic areas,
playgrounds or fields used
for the personal recreation
of families and children.
Please keep this in mind
as you make plans to visit
one of our city's parks.

More than 100 dogs got free sniffs
and a dozen pets found new homes
Saturday thanks to Pookie's Winter
Rescue Fest.
The narrow street behind the
shop's basketball-court sized park-
ing lot overflowed with dogs look-
ing to catch the scent of a biscuit
and maybe the eye of a new owner
on a chilly afternoon.
And it was all a little overwhelm-
ing for Marcia Sundberg. owner of
Pookie's Pet Nutrition and Bow
Wow Bakery. Her goal was just to
get the event off the ground, with
this being the first of a planned
series of annual events. What she
didn't expect was for pet lovers to
come by the hundreds.
"You never know how these
things are going to turn out," she
said. "We're really happy with how
it went."
How it went was with a torrent
of dogs rushing down the streets
even before the event officially
opened while the winter chill still,

Along the way, one would be

with a loose smile, happy for the at-

Leslie Snyder drove all the way
from Melbourne with a tiny, skin-

"Central Florida is becoming
very rescue friendly," she said.
Looking around at the dozens of
packed adoption booths, it was
easy to understand why. After
months or maNybe years hoping for
a new family, nine dogs and three
cats got a late Christmas present -
a home to call their own.
"People feel better about adopt-

SLaTriece Lee's hus-

"a Coupon

they never

for Hug-

would result
in national
recognition for
this thrifty Win-
ter Springs morn.

PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK - THE OBSERVER
Winter Springs mom LaTriece Lee, right, was chosen to be in the Generation Huggies advertising campaign after recording a one-minute video detailing her parenting philosophy.


In October, while brows-
ing at the Winter Park Art
Festival, LaTriece stopped
by the Huggies trailer. She
learned she would receive
a coupon if she recorded a
minute video about what it
means to be a mother.
"I'll try anything for a
coupon, so I went in and
we shot the video;" she said.
"My daughter Abrianna, just
over a year at the time, was
squirming so much. She even
poked me in the nose, and I
thought, 'No way will I win.'
I was very excited when I re-
ceived the phone call."


LaTriece's video was one
of 30 videos selected from
" more than 300 to be includ-
ed in the Generation Hug-
gies advertising campaign.
"LaTriece is pretty outgo-
ing and honest, so I was not
surprised when she entered
the contest," her husband,
J.J., said.
In her 60-second video,
she shared how a busy mom
makes "me-time":
"Me time? What's that?"
she said. "I just try to take an
flour at the grocery store by
myself or when she's taking
a nap. I guess I consider my

'me time' her time because
it's more fun playing LEGOS
with her."
The Generation Huggies
online campaign is geared to
a new generation of moms
who trust their instincts,
want to be heard, and are
connected online.
In October, Generation
Huggies-, launched a cross-
country five-city tour in
New York, Philadelphia, Dal-
las, Chicago and Orlando to
learn what it means to be a
modern mom.
"We're all about celebrat-
ing the everyday experienc-


es that make motherhood
special," said Craig Wanous,
Huggies' senior brand man-
ager.
As a 26-year-old mother,
LaTriece understands. "I love
to watch her grow, watch her
figure things out. Nothing
else in the world can replace
that. She colors, and tries to
walk and talk."
J.J. added, "LaTriece is a
great mother who learned
quickly how to multitask.

Witty banter afoot


'Wittenberg' - A new play
at Shakespeare Festival
It needs to be stated quite
simply that our commu-
nity is blessed with a great
Shakespeare Company. And
you have two more weeks
to see just how great they
are in their new play "Wit-
tenberg" by David Davalos.
Not only is it gloriously
written, it is gloriously
performed by a cast that
includes an award-worthy
performance by the artistic
director of that troupe -
our own Jim Helsinger.
For any person who
enjoys wordplay and the
humor that intelligent
banter between academi-
cians can sustain, this play
provides us with some
great laughs and aprequel
to Shakespeare's "Hamlet"!
Shakespeare - in his play
- is quite specific about the
college his young prince at-
tended, and that could cer-
tainly have been influenced
by the fact that Martin Lu-
ther (of the 95 Theses) and
the real - or not so real
- Dr. Faustus were there
at the same time. Never
have I so completely un-


derstood why Hamlet had
such a tough time making
up his mind after watching
these two men battle (with
words) for the mind (and
soul) of their favorite pupil
and ... (will he be?) future
king.
Why you want to go:
Everything about this
performance is superb -
the amazing actors, the
sets, the costumes and the
play itself. A gentleman be-
hind us at the performance
I attended muttered at one
point, "This is amazing,"
and the couple in front
of us had already seen it
twice. I add to that the fact
that there is one scene in
the second act that ranks
with the greatest theater I
have ever seen in my entire
life! Yes - it's that good.
Go and find whatever re-
maining seats you can at
the Lowndes Shakespeare
Center, in Loch Haven Park
(across from the Museum).

447-1700.

Chrome and Leather VI -
A Motorcycle as Art exhibit
For those of us who want


to mix a little "fun" with
our culture (admit it - we
all do), there is a Fine Art
Opening held each year at
the Museum of Florida Art
in DeLand that has over
the years also become a
"legendary" party. Up there
in DeLand, where (motor-
cycle) life on-the road is
taken very seriously, Bike
Week 2009 will begin with
an artistic roar with the
6th Annual Art of Chrome
& Leather exhibit, this year
called "Art on the Road of
Good and Evil."
The Art of Chrome &
Leather Bash, which opens
this exhibit with a motor-
cycle theme, will be held
Friday, Feb. 27, from 7
p.m. to 11 p.m. at the mu-
seum. The exhibit will run
through March 22. This
year is special because the
exhibit will feature many
Central Florida artists
including Doug Rhode-
hamel, Donna Frank, Keith
Theriot, Liz Kitchens, Dan
Colonna, Andrew White,
Brigan Gresh, Dawn Rosen-
dahl, Cheryl Turner, Toni
Taylor, and Robin Maria Pe-
drero among many others.
There will also be a show-
case of some of the coun-
try's top bikes as painted
by Florida's airbrush genius
Chris Cruz. The variety of
artwork shown at the Mu-
seum truly represents our
country's fascination with
the "life on the road," and
the exhibit is suitable for
families.
Why you want to go:
And then there's this
party! Not only does the
party open the exhibit, but


it serves as the one time
when the "art crowd" gets
to break out their "creative
leather and black tie" and
mix it up with the bikers
who descend on Central
Florida at this time each
year. Not only will attend-
ees be the first to see the
exhibit, but the "Bash"
will feature art by Perego,
including an action mural
painting and organic light
show with live models. The
Bash features live music,
biker fashion, food and
drink, in addition to a live
auction. Everyone is en-
couraged to wear their best

Pianist Andre Watts and
the Orlando Philharmonic
Our entire community is
enriched, and the Orlando
Philharmonic Orchestra
always performs at its best,
when we welcome a super-
star performer as a special
guest artist. American pia-
nist Andre Watts ranks at
the very top of those "guest
artist" lists, and he will per-
form with the Philharmon-
ic at 8 p.m. on Saturday, Feb.
28, at the Bob Carr in a per-
formance aptly titled "The
Artistry of Andre Watts."
For over four decades
Andrd Watts has made our
country proud and he is,
today, one of our most cel-
ebrated and beloved per-
formers. He was recognized


as a prodigy at the age of 16
when Leonard Bernstein
invited him to perform
with the New York Philhar-
monic in their Young Peo-
ple's Concerts (broadcast
nationwide on CBS). Then
just two weeks later, Bern-
stein asked him to perform
Liszt's "E-flat Concerto"
with the New York Philhar-
monic, launching his fabled
and much-celebrated per-
formance career.
Why you want to go:
While the program will
include the very appealing
"Le Tombeau de Couperin"
by Ravel, the program is
highlighted by Watts' per-
formance of Beethoven's
"Piano Concerto No. 4." The
Philharmonic's music di-
rector, Christopher Wilkins,
said, "With every new
piano concerto, Beethoven
as composer and pianist
changed history. Audiences
were thrilled by the dar-
ing, adrenaline-inducing,
and profoundly expressive
qualities of these concer-
tos. In the hands of Andre
Watts, they astonish today
as much as ever, especially
the sublimely dramatic
4th." Tickets are $13 to $65,
and can be purchased by
phone at 407-770-0071 or

Should the poor reproduce?


Should the impoverished
be encouraged to have
children? A question such
as this typically sparks re-
vulsion in human beings.
I am unsure why this is,
because it seems a reason-
able and legitimate societal
consideration. Should poor
people incapable of sus-
taining themselves multiply
their - and our nation's -
impoverished condition by
having more children? Let's
explore that question from
a national policy perspec-
tive.
First, an assumption
(from my value system):
Every human being who is
born becomes part of the
American team (dream).
This means the health care,
housing, nutrition and
educational needs of that
child are a national prior-
ity and as such, America
will tax itself to ensure
that those four concerns
are adequately addressed
through national uniform
standards, policies and pro-
grams.
Furthermore, any wom-
an finding herself pregnant
will have available superior
prenatal care. The mother
will have access to nutri-
tional foods and will be
trained (if required) and
encouraged on how to be
the "good" mother.
OK, with that ground-
work established, let's


discuss how many more
impoverished children the
nation requires. Actually,
I would put this question
into the larger issue of how
sizeable, population wise,
should America become?
We are geographically
comparable to India and
China, yet both of those
nations have a billion-plus
people, America is at 330
million citizens. What is a
good (sustainable, environ-
mentally sound) number
of people for America? 500
million? 750 million? 250
million? How many?
But today, I am interest-
ed only in how many more
children we require born of
the impoverished.
Please recall now my
earlier assumptions regard-
ing those already born or
on the way. But-does that
mean, as a society, as a na-
tion we cannot encourage
and reward wise family
planning that has more of
America's children born
to parents capable of ad-
equately providing for
their offspring? From my
perspective, that not only
seems logical, economical-
ly, but it is also the prefera-
ble approach to ensuring as
many children as possible
are born to parents genu-
inely capable of providing
for their progeny.
"According to the Na-
tional Center for Children


in Poverty, 16 percent of
children (20 percent of
children under age 6) in
America live in poverty. The
child poverty rate in Amer-
ica is often two to three
times higher that that of
other major industrial na-
tions. Poverty is defined
as living in families with
incomes below the federal
poverty line ($21,200 for
a family of four in 2008)."
-GovSpot.com
Some will argue that it is
hard-hearted and immoral
to suggest that the poor not
reproduce. I am not one of
those, however. Actually,
I think it is absurd and ri-
diculous to not expect the
"financially challenged" to
exercise restraint, to bring
forth children only when
their economic circum-
stances warrant (change).
Poverty is wretched. It
is horrible. It is doubly so
when burdened with the
responsibility of children.
It is one thing to be an
impoverished adult; it is
quite another to be a child
under those circumstances.
However you have arrived
in poverty -. through drug
addiction, mental illness,
bankruptcy, factory clos-
ings - whether you are a"
third-generation welfare
recipient, how is society,
how is America served by
you bearing more children
under impoverished condi-
tions (whether temporary
or lifelong)?
The sanctimonious Right
to Lifers get all teary-eyed
over the unborn. They
scream, they rant, and they
cite Biblical text claiming
that every egg, every sperm
is sacred. How can folks
who are so taken with the
never-born not seem to
give a damn about the liv-
ing?
"The big majority of
Americans, who are com-


paratively well off, have
developed an ability to have
enclaves ofpeople living
in the greatest misery with-
out almost noticing them."
-Gunnar Myrdal
That is one of the most
glaring ironies of all. Amer-
ica's Righteous Right huff
and puff about the sanctity
of life but don't give a damn
about quality of life. Go fig-
ure.
Unless there is an unspo-
ken "reason" to encourage
America's impoverished to
reproduce, why would we
not discourage folks who
cannot afford children
from having them? Seri-
ously, do we have poor peo-
ple so they can wait on us,
sweep our public terminals,
pick up our garbage, check
us out at convenience
shops, or to be on welfare?
Of course not. But the real-
ity of life is there will be im-
poverished among us. That
said and logically speaking,
should they reproduce?
Who benefits? Society? Our
state and federal budgets?
The children themselves?
"Thepoor you always
have with you." -Jesus
(John 12:8)
But that doesn't mean
they reproduce themselves
willy-nilly with no regard
for the consequences of
their actions. Every child
born comes with a cost. It is
imperative for children not
to be born into poverty. It
burdens us all through ad-
ditional costs (health care,
housing, social services,
etc.) - to say nothing of
the crushing psychologi-
cal burden of being poor
in America. Why have chil-
dren in an impoverished
environment? Particularly,
if you have the power and
means not to.
"Ofall the preposterous
assumptions of humanity
over humanity, nothing ex-


ceeds most of the criticisms
made on the habits of the
poor by the well-housed,
well-warmed, and well-fed."
- Herman Melville
If you are part of the
well-housed, fed and warm
America, don't ever claim
superiority. What America's
poor require are the things
you (we) take for granted.
But nor can the poor take
for granted life born into
crushing, relentless poverty.
There is a time and place
for everything and poverty
in particular is no place
for children. Children do
not choose to be born into
hardship.
America needs to aggres-
sively make available free,
safe and accessible birth
control throughout the na-
tion. Optional, of course.
But firmly encouraged. We
need national educational
programs promoting wise
(and timely) contraceptive
use. You want to change
the numbers of impov-
erished in America? One
way is to encourage family
planning nationwide, par-
ticularly among America's
poor. If necessary, rewards
and incentives should be
employed to limit fertility.
Let us make every effort to
make every child a wanted,
loved and sustained child,
To the degree we can ac-
complish that as a nation, it
behooves us to act.

Letters to


Commuter rail may be a bad investment


An independent group of taxpayers
is doing a study on greater govern-
ment efficiency (www.Taxpayer-
BudgetReviewBoard.org). I have
made available on our Web site,
under "Commuter Rail," the studies
I reference in this article.
The most important report is
the November 2007 report by the
Federal Transportation Agency,
who must approve the funding for
commuter rail. Under "Making the
Case", the government agency in
charge of rating our project give
our case a "low" rating, because
"the project shows no justification
why a significant investment in rail
is necessary in a corridor when ex-
isting bus service is limited."
What the federal government is
telling us is that ridership will be
low otherwise bus service would
already be at capacity. They are
telling us the $1.25 billion we are
considering spending on com-


muter rail is not a good investment.
A similar rating for the Dulles Cor-
ridor Metrorail Project "rendered it
ineligible," for federal funding, ac-
cording to a Jan. 24 letter from the
U.S. Department of Transportation.
The No. 1 reason people support
commuter rail is they believe it
will reduce traffic congestion. But
not even the proponents of com-
muter rail will suggest congestion
on Interstate 4 will be reduced. And
the traffic in small cities along the
route will be forever snarled be-
cause of train crossing and stops. In
busy Winter Park, a train will stop
traffic every 15 minutes in rush
hour. It is likely that vehicle traffic
in every town along the rail route
will increase and congestion will
get worse.
"Community leaders" imagine
they are adding a travel option;
for the most part, though, they are
cannibalizing existing bus services.


A significant proportion of the
"new" rail transit riders turn out
to be former bus riders. In Los An-
geles, it is estimated only 10 to 15
percent of the riders on the newly
constructed rail lines are attracted
from automobiles. The remaining
85 percent to 90 percent were for-
mer bus riders.
There are alternatives to expen-
sive fixed rail mass transit. Among
them is an "express bus system." It
is one-fifth the cost of light rail, and
actually can take you from where
you are to where you want to go
(versus taking you from where
you don't live to where you don't
work). The express bus system can
help solve the school transporta-
tion debacle. It has worked marvels-
in places like Brazil, where they do
not have the resources for rail but
have demands for mass transit.
It is clear to me after conducting
my own research that commuter %-


rail is not a good use of taxpayer
funds. It does not reduce traffic,
pollution (the trains are 1970s
diesel technology), or help the
average citizen. Writing in Trans-
port Reviews, April 2008, Jonathan
Richmond of Harvard University
has opined, "In no case has new
rail service been shown to have a
noticeable impact upon highway
congestion or air quality." And
government projects do not create
long-term jobs, they create long-
term liabilities.
Today, with service cuts and
teacher layoffs commuter rail is a
really bad idea. The state of Florida
is proposing to increase FDOT
funding by $300 million while de-
creasing school funding. We have
the best road network in the coun-
try already, and our schools are
among the nation's worst.

Manners -

good and bad
Chugging past my 88th
recently, I was jolted
by reading some published
words written in a blunt,
surprisingly hostile and of-
fensive manner. Rude, that
is.
The quality of people's
"manners" suddenly oc-
cupied my thinking. Man-
ners are often generated
by moral considerations:
Hence, perhaps, our po-
lite deference to those too
young, too old or too weak
to defend themselves.
"Manners before mor-
als," wrote Oscar Wilde.
Words are our most
transparent means of ex-
pressing ourselves, whether
spoken or in print. Our
choice of words gives a
strong indication of the
mood, character and per-


sonality behind everything
we say or write.
The word for "manners"
derives from the Anglo-
French word "manere,"
meaning "belonging to
the hand." Most figurative
meanings derive from the
original sense of "method
of handling."
"To the manner born"
means "destined by birth to
be subject to the custom"
("Hamlet" I iv. 15), and not
as generally used incorrect-
ly to refer to being born in a
"Manor House."
Present-day use of the
word "manners" pertains
to "external behavior in so-
cial intercourse" and dates
from about 1385.
Words can be damaging
weapons or soothing balm.
St. John says in the King
James Bible "In the begin-
ning was the Word... and
the Word was God." The
word is thus established
as the universal means of
communication.
Manners have to do with
the way - the manner - in
which we do things.
As a child, after I had
learned the basics of proper
table manners, Iwas invited
to eat at the table with my
elders. Before that, late at a
kitchen table.
I have forever after been
conscious of the manners
of people who do not de-
serve more than to sit at a
kitchen table.
Some wise man has said,
"Fine manners are at home
only with fine manners in
others - so, it might seem,
should be our guiding
taste as to choosing close


friends."
Wolfgang Goethe said,
"Behavior is a mirror in
which everyone shows his
image."
I used to walk my natu-
rally very well-mannered
dog in New York's Central
Park. A lady on a bench
once said to me, "Your dog
has certainly learned good
manners from you."
"I have learned much
more by observing him,"
was my reply.
So were written the
words I referred to at the
beginning of this discourse,
and which seemed jarringly
out of place in our amicable
local milieu.
Of course, manners
are relative, and may vary
markedly in different times
and places.
"You must practice the
manners of the day, if you
would have favor from it."
- Philip Massinger
"What once were vices
are now good manners."
- Seneca
The miniskirts of a few
years ago might raise the
eyebrows of some people
today. So would the corset-
ted mini-waists of stylish
women of the 1890s.
In writing or speaking,
polite manners are valuable
in establishing a civilized
atmosphere. '
"Politeness goes far, yet
costs nothing."
- Samuel Smiles
Machiavelli, who taught
manners to an Italian
Prince ("I1 Principe") in the
1400s said, "As laws are nec-
essary for manners to be
preserved, so good manners


are necessary that laws may
be maintained."
"Good manners are, to
a particular society, what
good morals are to society
in general: their cement
and their security."
"Manners must adorn
knowledge and smooth its
way through the world."
- Lord Chesterfield
"In days of old, men
made the manners: now
manners make the men."
- Lord Byron
"One learns manners
from those who have
none."
- Persian proverb
"We sometimes meet an
original gentleman who,
' if manners had not ex-
isted, would have invented
them."
- Emerson
The "pleases" and
- "thank yous" which were
drummed into us as kids
are alien to scads of young-
sters today. And it's their
loss, I believe. Writing
thank-you notes for favors,
or even gifts, is a practice
that has not been adequate-
ly passed down from past
generations to the present
day.
The evening meal that
pleasantly and formally
- united families daily of yore
seems a rarity today. As kids,
we washed our hands and
combed our hair before we
sat down for dinner which
was at a specific time, ad-
hered to and respected by
the whole family. I held my
mother's chair for her as
she sat down at one end of
the table. Once seated, we
said a blessing, and put our


napkins in our laps. During
dinner all of us talked of
what we were doing, and
good manners were ob-
served as we ate. If we kids
needed to get up during
dinner, we asked permis-
sion to leave the table be-
fore we arose.
Years later, I told my
father that I thought I
learned more from his din-
ner conversation and his
intellectual prowess than I
did in four years of college.
An officer in France
in WWI, my father was a
library of history and lan-
guages. He had also been
a champion fencer and
allowed me to play on our
high school football team.
As a university professor,
I conversed with students
about their home life, and
their evening meals seemed
to consist of running to the
fridge, grabbing something,
and eating it as they dashed
out of the house.
I often wonder, if my
family had not embodied
good manners at all times,
whether we kids would
have known each other and
our family's background as
well as we did. Our heritage
"was passed on in an aura of
good manners at our family
table, and on other social
occasions.
Manners today some-
times seem to be a long-lost
treasure that enriched our
growing up, and our whole
lives thereafter. I guess
that's why I'm truly shocked
to read rude words writ-
.ten by people who should
know better.

Fast Eddie's change of heart


WHITNEY HAMRICK
GUEST WRITER
S hitting in Ed "Fast Eddie"
Soistman's office at the St.
John Evangelical Lutheran
Church in Winter Park, you'll
immediately realize you are in
the presence of a character.
Your clues will be the Walt
Disney "Super. Fan" statue of
Mickey Mouse he received as a n
award for his church services
for Disney tourists, the book-
shelf lined with costume hats,
or pictures on his desk of him-
self dressed as a nun, a cowboy
or one of Snow White's seven
dwarves.
Soistman is a marvel when
you meet him, but he can be
hard to track down.
"There's a reason they call
him Fast Eddie 'cause he's on
the move," church member Jane
Pohlad said. If a member of the
church is expected for surgery.
she said, Soistman gets there
before they even arrive, ready to
lend his support.
He could be anywhere, doing
whatever he can to help and
spread a smile, something he
-has done during his 34 years of
service to the Central Florida
community.
"You just ask around for Fast
Eddie," Soistman said. "I'll be the
oldest person in the church and
I'll be the fastest."
At the age of 89, Soistmanstays
active, serving as a lay minister at
St. John or the Christian Service
Center downtown, which feeds
more than 400 people a day. He
spent 28 years on the board for
Great Oaks Village, where young

Former Lockheed Martin Chipf Planner Ed Soistman, 89, has spent the last 55 years helping people, whether at St. John Lutheran Church in Winter Park, where
he is a lay minister, or at a facility for troubled youth. He will be honored for his volunteering during a luncheon and program at the church later this month.


people coming out of foster care
and broken homes go to learn
how to live independently. He's
even got a building named after
him - the Soistman Scholarship
House. -
Soistman said he grew up on
welfare for the first 17 years of
his life in what he calls the "super
slums" of Baltimore, in a neigh-
borhood filled with bootleggers,
gamblers, drunken sailors and
prostitutes..
"By the grace of God, early,
early on as a little boy with my
brothers, some big guys, teenag-
ers, took us to a little Lutheran


church, and we went to Sunday
school and learned the little
songs, you know 'Jesus Loves
Me,'" Soistman said.
The .church adopted the
Soistman family and helped out
with rent, food and clothing.
"I was always impressed by
that," Soistman said. "I was a
young man when I got active; I
thought I wanted to do this for
somebody else and it never left
me."
For his first job, an 11-year-
old Soistman sold newspapers,
becoming the breadwinner for
five people, as his father never


held a job. Toward the end of his
high school days, Soistman said
he was kicked out for neglecting
his studies to work six jobs to
make ends meet.
He went to work for the Glen L.
Martin Company, now Lockheed
Martin Company, making air-
crafts for the war. Starting from
the bottom, he worked his way
up to chief planner, moving to
Central Florida in 1957 to help
start the division here.
"Then 34 years ago I said, 'This
is it, I'm leaving.' And they said,

Cook together this Feb. 14



Study shows romance is in the air during candlelit meal


America is -in need of a pas-
sion overhaul. A romance sur-
vey reveals that 40 percent of
Americans rate the passion in
their personal relationship as
PG-13 or less, by movie stan-
dards. But there is hope. All you
need are the right ingredients for
a romantic evening at home.
The survey, conducted by
Ipsos, for Agavero, an aphrodi-
siac-infused tequila, found that
35 percent of Americans cited a


romantic ca ndlel it dinner as the
best way to "get in the mood."
You may care to take a hint from
Diane Brown, author of "The
Seduction Cookbook," and turn
up the heat in your kitchen.
"Cooking together is a very
sensuous experience," Brown
said. "It enhances your senses
and sparks chemistry and pas-
sion throughout the meal."
To-start the evening off right,
Brown suggests preparing a tan-


Brown's recipe of brown butter seared
scallops with tequila mango chutney may
well ignite passion. For the recipe,
turn to page B7.

smooth Agavero, the first and

Protect yourself against Medicare gaps


While many seniors have ben-
efited from Medicare Part D
- the government insurance
program that provides cover-
age for prescription drugs -
grasping its intricate ins and
outs can be a challenge.
In fact, many seniors are
still unaware that the pro-
gram comes with a "gap in
service." It turns out that
when Medicare beneficiaries
reach the $2,701 threshold
in drug spending, they're re-
sponsible for paying the full
cost of their prescription
drugs up to a certain amount,
at which time Catastrophic
Coverage kicks in.
Fortunately, with a little
planning, it's possible to delay
or avoid falling into the gap
by spending less on the medi-
cations you need throughout
the year. Here are some tips:
Switch to generics -
Ask your doctor about pre-
scribing a generic medication
to treat your condition. Ge-
nerics can cost up to 80 per-
cent less than brand-name
drugs, which can make a big
difference since the total cost


of the drug - both your out-
of-pocket expenses and what
your plan pays - is counted
when calculating where you
are in relation to the gap.
Once someone does reach the
gap period, generics can help
them save a lot of money, es-
pecially if he or she is taking
multiple medications.
Savings are in the mail
Check to see if your plan
provider offers a mail-order
pharmacy. Mail-order users
typically save on the amount
of co-payments they'd make
for the same quantity of med-
ication dispensed by a retail
pharmacy - which could
reduce your out-of-pocket
costs.
Cover that gap
Consider plans that provide
coverage through the gap.
While premiums for those
plans are .often higher, it can
still end up costing you less in
the long run.
Use online tools
Check your Medicare plan's
Web site. Some sites will have


aPHOTO1COLIRTES' OF NAPSA
Many don't know that there are gaps in Medicare coverage, but it is possible to delay or avoid these gaps
altogether while spending less on medications throughout the year with generic drugs and gap alerts.


cost comparison tools such as
My Rx Choices(r) that show
you what your potential sav-
ings could be if you choose
lower-cost options.
Gap alerts
Some plans offer notifications
that will alert you when you
are approaching the gap. Of-


ten, these types of programs
can help you keep track of
how close you are to the gap.
Talk to your doctor and
pharmacist: Ask their advice
on how to help you stay out
of the gap and never stop
taking a medication without
consulting them first.

Easy ways to give back in tough times


In today's uncertain econo-
my, it can be a challenge to
find ways to "give back" to
the community. Even with
the best of intentions, the
roller-Zoaster financial news
of the day can make chari-
table giving seem like an ex-
travagance.
There are still ways, how-
ever, to make a difference:
* One way to support
charitable causes - without
spending any money directly
- is through volunteering. It
can be something as simple as
helping out at the library, vol-
unteering at a soup kitchen or
spending a few hours a week
at an animal shelter. The only
cost is the time spent volun-
teering - and the benefit is
a stronger community and a
difference made in each life
touched. The Better Business
Bureau's Wise Giving Alli-
ance, available at www.bbb.


org, provides information on
recognized charities.
* Sometimes, simply doing
business with companies that
embrace a culture of "giv-
ing back" is a great way to be
sure those companies thrive
- and thus continue their
philanthropic ways. Subaru
of America, for example, has
recently donated eight of the
company's all-wheel drive
Forester models to the Amer-
ican Red Cross. Subaru is also
helping to bridge the gap be-
tween charitable needs and
donations this year with an
innovative, "Share the Love"
campaign. During the cam-
paign, anyone who buys or
leases a new Subaru vehicle
can select one of five charities
to receive a $250 donation
from the car company. More
information on the program
can be found at www.subaru.
com.


PHOTO COURTESY OF NAPSA
One easy way to give back is to support local companies that give to local charities. But giving back can start
at home, and young. Teach children the value of giving away old clothes and unused toys to the needy.


* There is an old saying,
"charity begins at home," and
what better way to honor that
sentiment than by involving
children in charitable giving
at an early age? Set aside some
time to collect outgrown
clothing and toys that are no
longer used and bring them


to a shelter or a second-hand
store in which the profits sup-
port charity. Make a game of
it - and teach the beauty of
giving - by requesting that
children donate one old toy
for each new toy received as
a holiday gift.

Bulletin


Americans are living longer,
but living longer means our
aging population is at greater
risk for acquiring disease. For
those with high cholesterol, dia-
betes and high blood pressure,
Peripheral Artery Disease or PAD
is of particular concern.
PAD, often described as "poor
circulation," is diagnosed when
the large arteries of the leg nar-
row thereby restricting blood
flow. The tissues then become
starved of the blood, nutrients
and oxygen they need, and in
its most advanced form, skin
ulcers begin to develop. At this.
stage of PAD, called Critical Limb
Ischemia, the health threat is
serious.
Pradip Baiju, MD is currently
conducting an investigational
research study for PAD at the
stage of-Critical Limb Ischemia
with foot and/or leg ulcers.
The research study is currently
seeking qualified participants.
Individuals must be: 50 years
of age or older with stable skin
ulcers or non-infected gangrene
on a foot or leg; diagnosed with
Peripheral Arterial Disease at the
stage of Critical Limb Ischemia;
and be unsuitable for by-pass or
revascularization. For more infor-


mation call 1-888-853-4656 or
visit www.tamarisstudy.com.

For mango chutney:
2 unripe mangoes (about 3
pounds total)
/2 cup cider vinegar
/2 cup Agavero tequila
1 teaspoon salt
1 1-inch piece fresh gingerroot,
-peeled
1 fresh serrano chile
5 garlic cloves
1 teaspoon ground cumin -
1 teaspoon ground coriander
seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 3-inch piece cinnamon stick
2 star anise
2 tablespoons corn or safflower
oil
Juice of one lemon

For brown butter seared scallops:
12 large sea scallops
Kosher salt and freshly ground
pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter

For chutney: Peel mangoes and
cut into 1/2-inch cubes. In a
small bowl, toss mangoes with
vinegar, Agavero tequila and salt.
Make seasoning paste: Cut gin-
gerroot into 4 pieces. In the bowl
of a food processor, add ginger-
root, chile and remaining season-
ing paste ingredients, and puree
to a paste. For milder chutney,
wearing rubber gloves, remove
seeds and veins from serrano
chile.
Heat a 4-quart heavy sauce-pan
over moderately low heat until


. hot. Cook seasoning paste, cin-
namon stick and star anise in oil,
stirring frequently, 10 minutes, or
. until very fragrant. Stir in mango
mixture and simmer, covered,
over low heat, stirring occasion-
ally, until mangoes are tender,
about 30 minutes. Discard cin-
namon stick and star anise and
cool chutney completely. Chutney
keeps, covered and chilled, for
about 1 month.
For scallops: Pat scallops dry
with paper towels, then season
the scallops with salt and pep-
per. In a large skillet, heat the oil
until just smoking. Add the scal-
lops and cook over high heat for
30 seconds. Reduce the heat to
moderate and cook until golden
on the bottom, about 2 minutes.
Turn the scallops and add the
butter, allowing it to bubble and
brown. Cook, spooning the but-
ter on the scallops, until white
throughout, about 3 minutes.
Serve scallops with Agavero
mango chutney.
To keep the passion flowing,
finish the meal fireside with a
passion-inspiring Agavero cock-
tail. The alluring tequila is best
enjoyed neat, sipped slowly so
you savor the smooth flavor or
as part of delicious drink recipes,
such as Passion Potion or The
Aphrodisiac.
