Power lost

as cold hits

Winter Park

ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Freezing temperatures and
a broken power line led to a
big chill that affected about
400 Winter Park residents
last week. A mysterious
downed power line cut pow-
er in part of Winter Park just
as energy use was hitting its
peak to deal with the cold.
The Orlando Utilities
Commission broke a new
record last Thursday morn-
ing, and then power started
breaking down, with more
than. 1,000 megawatts of
power flowing through its
utility lines in the wake of
frigid temperatures that
dipped into the high 20s in
many areas.
Sudden power outages in
the western end of Winter
Park near Interstate-4 left
hundreds without heat as
utility crews scrambled to
fix the line.

Economy to


recover in '09


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

The U.S. economy is hurting
badly, but it's also resilient, a
market strategist said at the
25th Annual Economic Up-
date Breakfast.
"I'm not saying it's not
wobbling," said Michael
Skordeles, senior vice presi-
dent of Tennessee-based fi-
nancial advisory firm Mor-
gan Keegan. "It's wobbling
absolutely, but in compari-
son to other economies, it's
very robust."
Presented by the Win-
ter Park Chamber of Com-
merce, Tuesday morning's
event attracted about 200
of the city's business people,
who munched on bacon
and eggs, ears perked to the
strategist's presentation.
Skordeles discussed the
notable economic events of
2008, such as the slowdown
in commercial sales and .the
shedding of 2.6 million jobs.
The unemployment rate sits
at 7.2 percent but is expect-
ed to hit 9 percent this year.
"Until employers see the
light at the end of the tun-
nel, they're not going to be
adding people, particularly
small businesses," he said.
It could take the country
a couple of years to work
through this recession,
which officially began in
December 2007.
Skordeles said the gov-
ernment did things in vain
to help, such as distributing


economic rebate checks,
which most banked instead
of spending, and placing
a moratorium on foreclo-
sures. When that ban is lift-
ed, he said there is going to
be a rash of filings.
"What they're doing is
keeping people in homes
even though they can't af-
ford it," he said. "If some-
body lost their job, they're
not going to get their job
back all of the sudden."
A positive note: Existing
home sales are trending to-
ward stabilization, he said.
Sales are down 3.5 percent
from last year.
Even though there's
a new administration in
Washington, D.C., he said
not to expect significant
policy shifts. "The recession
puts the brakes on social
change," he said. "There will
be no huge economic policy
shifts, that is, except for the
massive stimulus."
The $900 billion econom-
ic-stimulus bill, which is at
the core of President Barack
Obama's recovery plan, was
approved in the Senate on
Tuesday. Now it will be sent
back to the House.
So how do we know
when we've hit bottom? We
could be there now, Skorde-
les said, but it's hard to. tell
because it's going to be a
very gradual climb back up
to normalcy. "There will be
a recovering economy in
'09 but it's not going to be
V-shaped."

Wildcats need to shoot to win


ISAAC BABCOCK

The Wildcats are knee-deep in
district basketball action as this
hits the presses, but they'll have a
long way to go before they can call
themselves the best in the state. The
three-stage playoff system has a lot
of hoops action in their future, with
a hopeful climax in March in Lake-
land.
What are their -odds of making
it to the final four? With an 18-7 re-
cord heading into the district tour-
nament, all signs point to a regional
run. But their performance against
the toughest of teams will be their
measure from this point onward, as
competition ratchets upward with
each rung they climb on the ladder.
Their achilles heel, just like last
year during their regional run, is
tough defensive teams. When the
Wildcats have their shooting cut
back, they tend to lose. The team
has only lost once this year after
scoring more than 60 points. When
they score less than that, they lose
much more often.
That type of scenario happened


in last year's regional semifinal
against Winter Springs when the
Cats were felled by a Bears team
that held the Cats to 64 points and
cruised away with 83 points of their
own. That ended Winter Park's play-
off run after only two games in re-
gional competition.
But that could be helped signifi-
cantly by the shooting of Austin
Rivers and Robert Lovaglio, who
both have seen their points per
game accelerate toward the end of
the season. Rivers has nailed 23.1
per game heading into the district
playoffs, with Lovaglio at 14.4, and
adding 7.7 rebounds per ganie in
the process.
But those stars have a lot of lime-
light on them. The Wildcats have a
high points-to-assists ratio. They
could be spreading the ball around
more, but so far they've been effec-
tive, with most of the lineup averag-
ing more than 50 percent shooting
inside the big arc.
Will they make it to the big game?
Those questions will be answered as
-they move through the playoffs. The
first hurdle is in front of them right
now, happening at Boone High

during the 10th Annual Leadership
Winter Park Pancake Breakfast held
in Central Park.
Checks were presented to the prin-
cipals of Aloma, Audubon, Brookshire,
Dommerich, Killarney, and Lakemont
elementary schools during the Win-
ter Park City Commission meeting on
Monday, Feb. 9. The breakfast was
made possible due to co-presenting
sponsors Fannie Hillman and Associ-


ates and Ferrell Wealth Management.
Maitland Middle School's Aca-
demic Awards for the second nine
weeks were celebrated last week.
Students and staff enjoyed Jeremi-
ah's Italian Ice. Jeremy, the owner of

ian ices for all three academic award
days.
Anna Grozhik of Winter Park,
daughter of Uladzimir Hrozhyk and
Svetlana Serak was named to the
Dean's List of Emory College in At-


lanta for the 2008 fall semester.
Students must be in the top 20 per-
cent of Emory College or have a 3.85
grade point, average or higher to be
named to the Dean's List.
Emily Brennan of Maitland, daugh-
ter of Robert Brennan and Wendy
Brennan, was named to the Honor
List of Oxford College, the two-year
liberal arts division of Emory Universi-
ty located in Oxford, Ga., for the 2008
fall semester.
Students must have a cumulative
grade point average of 3.5 or higher


to be named to the Honor List.
A Winter Park/Maitland group of
first grade girls, called the Sun-
shine Girls, were the jury, wit-
nesses, bailiff, and defendant -in a
mock trial. The Sunshine girls are a
group of local first graders who meet
monthly to learn about the commu-
nity and civic service. Orange County
Ninth Judicial Circuit Court Judge
Jenifer Davis presided over the case
of the Three Bears vs. Gold E. Locks.
The Three Bears sought damages
against Miss Locks for bad man-


ners, including trespassing, eating
all of Baby Bear's porridge, breaking
a chair and sleeping in Baby Bear's
bed without making it. Local attor-
neys participated in the case and are
parents of members of the Sunshine
Girls. In addition to presiding over the
trial, Judge Davis spoke to the girls
about the importance of the judicial
system and her courtroom deputies
gave the girls a tour of the courtroom.
At the conclusion of the trial, each girl
was presented with a pencil and a
ruler.

WHITNEY HAMRICK
GUEST REPORTER

The Audubon Center for
Birds of Prey in Maitland
may not be able to meet
its annual budget demands
this year, as private citizens,
foundations and corpora-
tions donate less and less.
Administrator Katie War-
ner said the nonprofit orga-
nization needs $500,000 a
year to operate. "Our largest
costs are veterinary services
and food," she said. As for
making it under budget this
year, "It's hard to say."
Founded in 1979, the
Center has treated more
than 12,000 injured or or-
phaned birds, and has re-
leased more than 40 per-
cent back into the wild. The
Center houses eagles, owls,.
falcons, hawks and kites in
the volume of more than
650 admissions each year,
according to its Web site,
audubonofflorida.org.
Warner said the organi-
zation has seen a decline
in donations from founda-
tions and corporate entities
during the last couple of
years. "If a corporate dona-
tor has four or five chari-
ties they donate to and they
have to cut it down to three,
you have to hope you're a
priority."
The Audubon has cer-
tainly proved itself to be


a viable part of the com-
munity. In July 2005, it
was featured in a PBS se-
ries called "New Florida,"
which can be viewed on its
Web site. The special won
several awards including
Telly Award Finalist, Mar-
Com Creative Award, Auro-
ra Award Best of Show and
Videographer Award of Dis-
tinction.
"We are part of the Cen-
tral Florida community, and
we are asking that you sup-
port your local charities,"
Warner said. "We take all
types of donations whether
it be money, in kind or your
time. We ask that all mem-
bers of the community get
involved."
According to Maitland
community events coordi-
nator, Mari Smith, the city is
waiting for nonprofit orga-
nizations such as the Audu-
bon to raise a hand and say,
"Hey, we need help." The
Audubon is struggling the
same as thousands of non-
profit organizations are
struggling nationwide.
"They're a lot of things
they can do," Smith said.
"If the old sponsorships are
pulling out, than they have
got to be the one to be their
own cheering section ... all
the nonprofits are hurt-
ing. All the nonprofits are
screaming the same things,
and that's the time you need

to stand out of the crowd."
Smith says the services
the Audubon provides are
services that should not be
missed.
"You've got to go see it,"
Smith said. "It's beautiful
when they bring that beau-
tiful bald eagle that's been
injured by an arrow. It's
incredible to see them up


close; that's when people
are excited.
"Then they have a won-
derful new appreciation for
the birds they see every day.
Go see it. You've got to go
see it to believe it. It's price-
less trying to save our na-
ture for future generations.
How do you put -a price on
that? You can't."


Several expired business tax breaks were extended
by the 2008 economic bailout law. The law extended
and modified the research tax credit, 15-year depre-
ciation for restaurant and leasehold improvements,
and enhanced charitable deductions for donations of
food, books, and computers. These breaks are available
for 2008 and 2009.

DON'T OVERLOOK WAYS TO

TRIM YOUR 2008 TAXES



Time is short, but it's not too late to trim your 2008 tax bill. Here are some last-minute moves to
consider and deductions you shouldn't overlook.

* Maximize your 2008 IRA contribution. You have until April 15 to make deductible 2008
contributions. The maximum contribution is $5,000 for 2008 ($6,000 if you were 50 or. older last year).
* If you changed jobs in 2008, make sure you didn't have excess social security taxes
withheld. Claim credit for the excess on your Form 1040 if you paid over $6,324.
* Look into itemizing deductions if you usually take the standard deduction. Search for
allowable deductions that you might have overlooked, such as the reinstated deduction for state and
local sales taxes in lieu of deducting state and local income taxes.
* Medical deductions are allowable to the extent they exceed 7.5% of adjusted gross income
(AGI). Don't forget items such as eyeglasses and'hearing aids. You can deduct mileage for medical
appointments, plus parking and tolls.
* Don't overlook tax preparation fees, safe deposit costs, and certain investment advice. They
all qualify as miscellaneous deductions, subject to a 2% of AGI limit.
* Up to $2,500 of student loan interest is deductible whether you itemize or not.
* The deduction of up to $4,000 for qualified tuition and school expenses is available for 2008.
Qualifying amounts for you, your spouse, and dependents may be deductible. Income limits apply.
* If you're a teacher or teacher's aide, you can deduct up to $250 for classroom supplies that
you purchased with your own money.
* If you purchased a hybrid gas-electric car in 2008, you may be entitled to a tax credit.
* Even if you don't itemize deductions, you can take a deduction of up to $1,000 ($500 for
singles) for real estate taxes paid in 2008.
Call our office for details or tax filing assistance.

After months of revisions, Winter
Park is with days of approving its
first comprehensive plan amend-
ment in nearly two decades.
"We still have some loose ends to
tie up and that should be it," Com-
missioner Beth Dillaha said.
But the Commission also heard
plenty of feedback from city staff
and residents during a Commission
meeting Monday to review the plan,
which is scheduled for a final public
hearing on Monday, Feb. 23.
The comprehensive plan lays out
the city's plans for managing devel-
opment and resources in the long-
term future, and gives developers
specific guidelines for how they can
build in the city. It's supposed to be

"This is so important for the com-
munity to have this in place for the
future," Dillaha said.
Winter Park's plan, which had
last been revised in 1991, was noto-
riously out of date.
The process, which began in ear-
nest in 2007 at the behest of outgo-
ing Commissioner John Eckbert,
was completely scrapped in May of
2008. That reset the entire process,
after months and hundreds of man-
hours of research and drafting.
That's because it had been deemed
illegal by the state, and the Commis-
sion voted that it'd be more cost ef-
fective to start over than to attempt
to revise the current amendment.

Drinking hours draw crowd to City Hall


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Dexter Richardson can see the glow
of Fiddler's Green from just outside
his restaurant's door. And as he's
locking up for the night, he knows
the owners of the Winter Park Irish
pub and eatery are making money
on alcohol sales for three hours lat-
er than he can.
Drinking hours rules that allow
many businesses to stay open as late
as 2 a.m. in Winter Park don't apply
to Hannibal Square, and Richardson
thinks it's about time that changed.
Monday night Richardson and
other business owners and resi-
dents of Hannibal Square took that
argument to City Hall. And a small
army of other residents came there
to stop them.
"After Dexter's closes here you
can walk two blocks to Fiddler's
Green and Luma and get drinks as
late as you like," Hannibal Square
Association President Baxter
Mathews said.'
An issue with a speakeasy flair
has turned into a citywide fight for
a handful of restaurateurs and resi-
dents in the Hannibal Square neigh-
borhood.
Some restaurant and bar own-
ers who said they haven't gotten a
fair hearing in a decade may finally
get a listening ear, thanks to strong
words at Monday's Winter Park City
Commission meeting.
The subject - alcohol and when
to sell it - held the public micro-
phone captive for more than an
hour as longtime business owners


plead their case to the Commission
to let them move their bar hours
later into the night.
That bent the ear of more than
one commissioner who couldn't
help but commiserate with the own-
ers of bars who'd said their business
and income had been stifled by hav-
ing bar hours that cut off drinking
three hours earlier than the rest of
the city.
"I've been to Dexter's at night
plenty of times when it was closing,
and I didn't want to leave," Com-
missioner Beth Dillaha said.
She also added that noise after
bar closing was the cause of most of
the issue in keeping bars open later.
"If this were being presented a
block or two from my neighbor-
hood, I would be highly concerned,"
she said.
That, former Winter Park bar
owner Brent Hernandez said, was
why Fiddler's Green owners began
putting signs in their parking lot
asking customers to leave in a quick
and quiet manner. The consequenc-
es would fall on the bar, not the pa-
trons, and in some cases those could
be dire.
The reason the microphone be-
came so busy at Monday night's
Commission meeting was a recent-
ly passed city ordinance that would
allow the city to punish other bars
in the city for repeatedly breaking
drinking laws by scaling back their
"extended hours" privileges.
Those extended hours are a
permit-issued extension in alcohol
sales hours the city grants to restau-
rants and bars in most of the city
- but not in Hannibal Square. If a


bar is caught breaking alcohol sales
laws more than three times in three
months, they could be punished by
having their hours cut back to 11
p.m. on weeknights and 12 a.m. on
weekends.
But Hannibal Square businesses
took issue with not being able to sell
alcohol as late as other businesses -
some of which operate two blocks
from Hannibal Square.
That includes buildings owned
by developer Dan Bellows, who said
the new Hannibal Square deserves a
new look from the city. Its improved
image should beget changed rules,
he said.
"I remember in '89, it was board-
ed up building after boarded up
building, vacant lots," Bellows said.
"The occupiers of Hannibal Square
were prostitutes, drug dealers.
That's what was hanging out in that
area. That's all changed since then."
He was quick to point out that
fears of restaurants and bars im-
mediately pushing their drinking
hours as late as possible shouldn't
be an issue.
"Nobody wants to rush out there
and push back their hours to 2 a.m.,"
he said. "This is about equal footing.
Their leases, food, alcohol costs the
same. Their marketing costs the
same. They should have the same
rules."
Dexter's Richardson said that
the issue is fairness, and allowing all
businesses in the city the same op-
portunities.
"I think it's important to have a
level playing field," Richardson said.
"To punish them before anything
happens ... that's not the way to do


it."
Commissioner Margie Bridges
sided with nearby residents who
said that patrons would be too loud
too late at night if the businesses
were allowed to sell alcohol later.
"It's a residential neighborhood,"
Bridges said. "This is out of respect
to the taxpayers who live there and
have the right to enjoy their home."
Resident Mary Daniels said that
having the City Commission con-
sider changing the rules ignores
the boards designed to handle the
issue of changing the alcohol sales
hours.
"I'm a little bit concerned and
also confused as to why we're even
talking about this," Daniels said.
"When those businesses moved into
that area they knew it was a com-
munity area."
The city already has a noise or-
dinance in effect for the entire city
that allows the police to handle
noise complaints after 11 p.m. Win-
ter Park Police Chief Doug Ball had
told the Commission at a previous
meeting that noise had rarely been
a problem in the Hannibal Square
area.
The Commission voted to push
the issue until its next meeting, Feb.
23, when they'll discuss the issue of-
ficially, with the potential for a vote
that could allow Hannibal Square
to be given privileges to sell alcohol
later for special occasions.
"This is a small safe step forward
to see if this would be an acceptable
test for this environment," Com-
missioner Karen Diebel said.

Each year, the city of Mait-
land gathers to celebrate the
many accomplishments of
the volunteers who devote
,countless hours of service
throughout the year. And it
is through their efforts that
the city of Maitland is able
to provide the quality ser-
vice and projects to our resi-
dents.
On Tuesday evening, we
took the opportunity to ap-
plaud the efforts of all who
currently serve, and who


have previously served, on
the city of Maitland boards,
passionately and selflessly,
giving back to their com-
munity in every way.
It is mainly through their
efforts that we have been
able to accomplish so much
over the course of the past
year. We are proud to have
completed projects few
thought possible in current
economic times, including
the rededication of Min-
nehaha Park, a financial


commitment to cleaning
up our lakes, and a ground-
breaking for our police
station, along with many
more accomplishments.
Many projects came in un-
der budget, reducing the
tax burden to our residents.
But we could not have'done
so much without a strong
commitment on behalf of
all our volunteers.
Selecting a Volunteer of
the Year has been an inte-
gral part of this recogni-
tion event over time and
has served to recognize the
efforts of an individual or
individuals who exemplify
dedication of the highest
degree to our city.
This year's recipient is Mr.
Fred Venturoni. Fred was
first appointed to serve on
the Lakes Advisory Board
in August 2004 and cur-
rently serves as chairman.
Since his appointment, he
has been dedicated to the
preservation of our lakes
and worked hard to make


sure that our lakes give the
city of Maitland part of our
identity.
As chairman of the Lakes
Advisory Board, he has
worked hard to establish a
long-term funding source
for the preservation of our
lakes. His efforts led to the
establishment of an Envi-
ronmental Stormwater Util-
ity, which was discussed at
countless residential meet-
ings, board meetings and
City Council meetings.
He also assisted and
pushed for the modification
of the city's boat user fee,
which made the city of Mait-
land eligible for 100 percent
funding of routine aquatic
plant management activi-
ties on the Winter Park-Mai-
tland Chain of Lakes.
Additionally, he contin-
ues his efforts on the Water-
front Structure Ordinance
and the Shoreline Vegeta-
tion Ordinance. His efforts
to assure our community
that we follow the Stormwa-


ter Lakes Management Plan
are exemplary and matched
by few.
Congratulations to Fred
Venturoni and to all who
serve the city of Maitland
in a volunteer capacity. We
could never accomplish as
much as we have without
you!

On Saturday, Feb. 7, Tuskawil-
a Middle School in Winter
, 'Springs hosted the countywide
V event for grades six through 12.
e: Students presented in-depth
projects that showcased this
-, year's theme: '"The Individual in
k; History: Actions and Legacies."
N^ "We're thrilled with the level
of work today," said Natalie Ga-
:, varrette, Seminole County Na-
?'tional History Day coordinator.


"The quality was far above last
year."
The young researchers
worked for months on projects
in formats including documen-
tary, exhibit, paper, performance
or Web site. Students were chal-
lenged to reach beyond a tradi-
tional biography to defend why
their subjects' actions changed
history.
Milwee Middle School eighth-
grade twins Sahana and Spoor-
thy Prabhudeva - share many
similarities, but their documen-
taries were vastly different. Sa-
hana researched Hitler while
Spoorthy chose Ghandi.
"Although we were compet-
ing, my sister gave me construc-
tive criticism and support." said
Sahana, whose documentary


made the junior category final
four. "We definitely improved our
research skills," Spoorthy added.
"Our parents and teachers were
very supportive."
Sanford Middle School sev-
enth-graders Ryan Alt and Sam
Wilton created a group exhibit
on Konrad Zuse, inventor of the
first programmable, commer-
cially available computer.
"We might work with older
systems without his contribu-
tion," Alt said.
"He was the Bill Gates of Ger-
many," Wilton added.
Tuskawilla Middle School
eighth-grader Kennedy Brinkley
portrayed Mary Phelps-Jacob,
credited with securing the first
patent for the modern brassiere.
"I was flinging bras in every di-
rect ion," said Brinkley, who used


ed Tolkien, Martha -Graham, Rosa-
lind Frank and John Lewis. Win-
ning paper presentations included
subjects Andy Wa rhol, Nikola Tessia
and Robert Oppenheimer.
The 25-year-old national com-
petition involves two million stu-

Rhoda Sherwin, 61, signed up for
an Internet dating service last Feb-
ruary, hoping to find Mr. Right. Just
when she thought she had, he was
lost in cyberspace after failing to re-
new his subscription.
Members of Internet dating ser-


vices, such as Match.com, create
profiles that detail their qualities
and what they're looking for in a
mate. Then they browse other pro-
files, chatting and setting up face-
to-face dates. While Match.com is
for all singles, JDate.com, which
Sherwin joined, is tailored to the
Jewish community.
The divorcee from Pembroke
Pines, Fla., stumbled across FLAFu-


nandSmart's profile and instantly
felt a connection to the man, listed
as a 63-year-old Winter Park resi-
dent. She sent him an e-mail, but
because he was not paid-up, he was
unable to access it.
In October, she received a "flirt"
message from him that read, "We
may be far apart, but our hearts
could be so close. Don't you agree?"
"Needless to say, I was overjoyed


and responded immediately," Sher-
win said. "Once again though, my
mail was left untouched and un-
read. Apparently he never found
out there was an answer to his ques-
tion."
In a last-ditch effort to find him
outside the World Wide Web, she
contacted The Observer. If you are

family accepts you."
Finnegan Alford-Cooper,
professor of sociology and
anthropology at Stetson
University in DeLand and
author of the book, "For
Keeps: Marriages That Last
a Lifetime," said, "Couples
who marry later in life are
more likely to be success-
ful."
She also said that if both
partners in the marriage
already have their own re-


sources, such as a home
and money, and both fam-
ily members approve of the
marriage, then the rates of
success are much higher.
Mayflower residents Col.
Harry Clark, 89, and Amy
Clark, 87, have also been
successful at their marriage,
and on March 14, they will
celebrate their 62nd anni-
versary. They also attribute
having a good sense of hu-
mor and willingness to be
flexible as two necessary


qualities to ensuring a last-
ing marriage.
"You have to have toler-
ance, patience and a good
sense of humor to make a
marriage work," Amy said.
Although the Clarks did
not always have tolerance
for each other, upon meet-
ing at the age of 6, Amy ad-
mits it was not love at first
sight.
"I didn't pay much at-
tention to Harry; he was an
only child, spoiled and not a


nice boy," she said.
It was not until she fin-
ished nurse training at the
age of 25 and the colonel
returned from Japan in
1946 that they decided to
give things a try. They soon
learned they had more in
common than they thought
and were married six
months later.
"He never got down on
one knee, we just sort of de-
cided to get married," Amy
said. "So I went home to my


dad and said, 'Daddy, Harry
and I are going to get mar-
ried,' and he said, 'Well, it's
about time."'
Their marriage has
brought them to many plac-
es around the country, and
seven years ago they settled
at the Mayflower, where
the both the Clarks and the
Phillipses continue to enjoy
the blessing of marriage.
"It's never too late to find
love in your life," Sallie said.

"Moving To The Mayflower

Is An Investment In Peace Of Mind"


For Ann and Donald Paulsen,
The Mayflower means peace of
mind. "We wanted to make
our own plans for this next
phase of our lives, rather than
depending on our children,"
says Ann. "With healthcare
costs going up, moving to
The Mayflower was definitely
a good investment for our


-I


future. In a troubled economy,
who knows what long-term
care is going to cost several
years from now?"
If you're looking at retirement
living options, take a look at
The Mayflower. It's a good
plan for the future .

Protecting citrus from freeze


Citrus trees do not enter a
dormancy period like tem-
perate-zone deciduous trees
such as peaches or apples.
They do, however, develop
some cold tolerance as tem-
peratures reach the 40-60
degrees Fahrenheit range
for a period of about two
weeks. This cold tolerance
is influenced by environ-
mental conditions, mainly
cool temperatures, but also
by tree health, its rootstock
and the citrus specie.
How trees freeze: As a
general rule, a citrus tree
will freeze from the top to
bottom and from the out-
side to the inside. Flow-
ers are the first tissues to
freeze, followed by tender
new growth such as leaves
and twigs. Younger tissues
will be more affected than
older tissues, and smaller-
diameter wood before larg-


er-diameter wood. Young
developing fruits will freeze
before mature fruits. The
smaller the size of the fruit,
the faster it will freeze. Fruits
with thin peel will freeze
faster than fruits with thick
peel. Freeze damage occurs
when ice forms inside the
citrus tissues.
Predisposing factors:
Citrus trees are more sus-
ceptible to cold damage
during their first five years.
Stress factors such as lack of
water, diseases, insect dam-
age or nutritional deficien-
cies can increase the dam-
age caused by low tempera-
tures. Trees are more suscep-
tible to cold damage during
growth flushes, which may
be induced by warm tem-
peratures during the winter
or by heavy pruning of the
trees during the late fall or
winter months, reducing

their heat-retaining capac-
ity. Heavy fertilizer applica-
tions can also result in vig-
orous growth that may lead
to freeze damage.
Critical temperatures:
The critical temperature for
ice forming in citrus tissues
is about 28 degrees F. Citrus
flowers will freeze at about
28 degrees F, and fruit dam-
age will occur when temper-
atures fall below 28 degrees
F for at least four hours. If
mature fruits freeze, they
can still be used for juice if
harvested promptly.
Site selection: Trees
should be located on the
south and west sides of the
yard. The reasoning behind
this recommendation is that
south is the warmest area
and west is the next warm-
est area in a given landscape.
Other places to locate trees
are near or between build-
ings, south-facing slopes,
next to other large trees or
near large bodies of water
such as lakes.
Cold protection with
sprinklers: The principle
behind the use of sprinklers
to protect trees from freez-
ing is that heat is released
when water changes from
liquid to ice, a phenomenon


known as heat of fusion.
When water is freezing, its
temperature will be near
32 degrees F; therefore, the
heat liberated as the water
freezes maintains the tem-
perature near 32 degrees F.
This temperature, known as
the triple point, is in equilib-
rium between vapor, liquid
and ice. If sufficient water
is applied and all leaves and
branches are covered with
ice, protection can be ex-
pected. If only partial cover-
age of leaves or branches is
accomplished, damage can
occur and the damage will
be more severe than if wa-
ter had not been applied.
Do not stop sprinklers until
temperature is 32 degrees F
or above and water is drip-
ping from all parts of the
plants.
Soil banking:- One of
the cheapest methods to
protect the trunk of young
citrus trees from cold dam-
age is the practice known as
soil banking. It consists of
mounding soil around the
trunk of the tree as high as
possible to protect it from
cold temperatures even as
low as 12-15 degrees F. Bank-
ing is basically a method to
protect the graft union. Soil

banks must be made before
freezes occur and should be
removed as soon as temper-
atures start to warm up be-
cause it can predispose the
trees to diseases and pests
problems. Tree wraps are
also effective in protecting
young trees from freezing
damage; the effectiveness of
various wraps depends upon
their insulation capacity.
Polyurethane wraps have
been found to be effective
at protecting the trees, but
this method is less effective
than soil banking. Unbank-
ing should be done around
the end of February.
Horticultural prac-
tices: Trees should be wa-
tered-during the winter to
reduce water stress. Water-
stressed trees do not recov-
er as quickly from freezes as
non-drought-stressed trees.
If freeze damage occurs, do
not prune immediately af-
ter the freeze - dead tissues
will protect the tree from
further damage. Pruning
can be done by mid-spring
or early summer, when tree
damage can be determined.
Fertilization should be, ini-
tiated after the chance of
freezing temperatures is
over.

Opinion/


I write this with reverence
and deference to Mark
Twain, inspiration for us
all, particularly his stories
titled, "Letters from the
Earth."

Archangels Michael and
Gabriel gathered totally
perplexed after the Creator
had dismissed them along
with Satan. Satan strolled
up with a sly smile on his
face and said, "Boys, it's
been too long, too long
since we last convened. It's
nice to get out occasion-
ally, get some fresh air, and I
haven't seen God in so long,
I forget what an inspira-
tion he is. You gotta give it
to Him, He really has a way
with words! Always has. I
have to say He looks a little
peaked, a little down at the
mouth."
Michael glared and said,
"Oh, a lot you care, Satan."
And Gabriel horned in
with, "Yea, He thought you
were responsible!"
Satan smiled his Satanly
smile, and his perfect teeth
formed around a laugh so-
seductive that Michael's
knees nearly buckled ,


and Gabriel swooned but
caught himself and faintly
asked how long he was out
for.
"Because I was faultless
on this one, God's given me
a few hours. I asked for one
night to renew old, uh, con-
nections with a heavenly
angel or two. Know what I
mean boys? Hubba-hubba,
huh guys! I get a pleading
letter, now and then about
how, uh, timelessly boring
it is here in eternal heaven
and that if ever I get a re-
prieve I should visit the 01'
Dew Drop Inn, but you boys
wouldn't know anything
about..."
"...Stop it Satan! We
know your coarse ways,
which is why God saw your
hand in the recent perver-
sions on Earth!"
"I have to say, Gabe, I
would have liked to have
had my, hmmm, hand in
this one but I am as fault-
less as you are chaste,"
sighed Satan.
Michael broke in, "No
one can figure out what has
gone wrong on Earth. Some
are quietly wondering if, uh,
you know, not everything is

known, if you understand
my meaning?"
"Well, I was amazed,"
said Satan, "That He gave
His creations a free will.
That was amazing wasn't it?
What was He thinking? Ha!
That they'd exercise judg-
ment? Ha! Too funny. God is
too funny."
"Oh, like you care, Satan.
Free will is your license
to seduce and defile and
wreak havoc with God's
creations!"
"Mikey, give it a break
will ya! One of God's clever-
er said something to the ef-
fect that 'as the twig is bent
so grows the tree.' I don't
have to work very hard, I'm
telling you. And if heaven's
so fine, why the plaintive,
pleading letters from some
of your more heavenly
compadres to stop by now
and then?"
"Oh, enough already
with your suggestive banter,
* Satan, I'm telling you God is
disgusted and he may trash
the whole thing! And you
know what that means, no
more business for you dear
chum!"
Satan's ears perked-up
with that revelation, "What!
Trash Earth?"
"Well, it's not like hu-
mans haven't trashed the
planet already! Earth is an
absolute dump. Humans
have destroyed the jewel
God gave them, and they
breed like there's no tomor-
row! And you know what?
There just might not be!"
exclaimed Michael.
"When God heard of that
woman with six children
being mechanically im-


planted and having eight
more, well, He just had a
royal snit fit and then, even
worse, He went into such
a funk that it lasted until
He called for you to be de-
livered from Hell. And you
missed what God did in a
rage to that black hole in
Ursa Minor! Nasty! Nasty,"
shuddered Gabriel.
"Ah the good ol' days of
a raging, vengeful, God,"
sighed Satan.
"No! This is no joke, Sa-
tan. He's seriously thinking
of throwing out the entire
kit and caboodle, of erasing
all humanity from time and
space."
"Yea, so. Good riddance
to bad trash, huh?"
"Uh, Satan, he'll clean
house down below, too! If
you catch my drift?"
"What? All because some
wacky woman went postal

Maitland election needs to
focus on leadership
Maitland has problems that can
no longer be ignored
Maitland has various far-reach-
ing problems that are threatening
the very essence of what has at-
tracted so many residents to the
city. Now, more than ever, Maitland
needs leadership capable of dealing
with these problems to progres-
sively move the city forward.
Many of our roads are in obvious
need of repair, parks are closing
early, and other services are being
cut. In our downtown there are un-
sightly vacant lots and the former
Winn-Dixie store has become an
eyesore.
While we have a number of
unpleasant things to look at in
our downtown, we don't have the
new City Hall and Public Safety
Complex voters approved in 2004.
Next to Lake Lily, however, we see
a sprawling, high-density complex
that will include 450 apartments.
Other projects have been approved
at almost twice the height. Thus
the direction of our downtown de-
velopment is moving contrary to
the Maitland's Downtown Master
Plan, which "is based on advancing
the goals of the residents":
-Preserving the residential char-
acter of the city


-Nurturing the traditional small
town spirit of the community
-An aesthetically pleasing envi-
ronment that is clean and healthy
-Enhancing the quality of life for
all residents
-Improving traffic circulation
and safe access to businesses
Financial consequences of mis-
management
But developing our downtown
contrary to the community's goals
is only part of Maitland's problems.
The city is continuing to slide into
a financial hole despite three tax
rate increases in the last seven
years, even while record property
values had been producing record
tax revenues.
Prior to 2000, Maitland was
practically debt free. This year Mai-
tland's bond debt, including the
Community Redevelopment Agen-
cy, will soar to some $32 million! In
addition, the CRA has expenditures
totaling just more than $26 million,
has borrowed about $10 million
from various city funds, and will
continue to be a financial bur-
den on the city for years to come.
Therefore, it is time to ask the ques-
tions, what has been accomplished
with all these millions while our
downtown remains an embarrass-
ment for our community and what
can be done about it?
Maitland needs sound growth


management leadership
Maitland's predicament is large-
ly the result of ineffective growth
management leadership. Preferen-
tial consideration is given to devel-
opers who propose projects of size,
density and purpose that have little
in common with the goals of Mait-
land's Downtown Master Plan and
Revitalization Plan.
Rather than moving the devel-
opment of Maitland's downtown
forward, this failure of leadership
has stymied progress, created mas-
sive debt and drained the city's fi-
nancial resources. Developers have
set the direction of downtown
development for high-density
apartment projects that will sprawl
through our downtown. The bur-
den on our roads, schools, services,
utilities and other aspects of life in
Maitland of this type of develop-
ment will be pervasive and impact
everyone.
It is time for a reality check and
a time for progress "we can be-
lieve in"
Obviously those responsible for
the city's development will attempt
to refute this characterization of
Maitland's predicament. But they
can no longer deny the financial
facts presented here and deny what
everyone can see for themselves. It
will be argued the CRA is projected
to begin paying back loans from


the city in 2013. These projections
are suspect and apparently based
on the property values in the CRA
increasing more than $175 mil-
lion, or 450 percent, in less than 4
years. In the middle of a real estate
bust with declining property values
and revenues, it is time for a reality
check on the financial situation of
the city.
With CRA expenditures signifi-
cantly exceeding most projections
and the absence of effective project
management, there are numerous
reasons to expect the CRA to be a
continuing financial burden on the
city. It should surprise no one there
will be more tax rate increases and
more service cuts. How long will
taxpayers tolerate all this? Eventu-
ally voters will want to know what
is happening to their city.
Leadership should be the focal
issue of the mayoral election on
March 10. Voters should demand
facts to the issues raised and want
to know where the candidates
stand on the issues. All this will
mean nothing if the candidates
are not held responsible for their
promises and actions.
Maitland can make progress we
can believe in. Voters need to get
informed and get involved in this
election. Make plans to attend the

Meet the Candidates at 7 p.m. Fri-
day, Feb. 13 at the Maitland Civic
Center.
- Len Schmidt

Looking for a 'yes'
or 'no' answer
As Rollins professor and Winter
Park Good Government Group
Candidates Forum moderator
Rick Foglesong exited the Uni-
versity Club of Winter Park Feb.
3, I1 thanked him for unwittingly
asking mayoral candidate Ken
Bradley a written question that
I had submitted anonymously,
along with dozens of others from
various members of the audience.
Bradley, a highly respected hospital
administrator with hospital expan-
sion plans, who spoke with candor
about wanting commuter rail for
his hospital employees, was less
than candid when it came time to
answer a simple yes or no question.
We learned from Mr. Bradley
that he considers taxes, taxes and
taxes the three most important is-
sues facing Winter Park. We learned
from him that the Carlisle develop-
ment is "ancient history," invoking
the word "leadership" is the answer
to almost any debate question,
there has been too much divisive-
ness in Winter Park, and Winter
Park has failed to anticipate the
worldwide economic meltdown.
He even went so far as to suggest
that Winter Park was in better
shape three years ago. Is it any
surprise that the names Eckbert,
Metcalf, Grindstaff, Furman, Terra-
nova, and Diebel graced the "Host
Committee" listing for the Bradley
campaign kick off party?
No matter how likable and well-
meaning Ken Bradley may be, sell-
ing Winter Park's soul for tax rev-
enue is always a bad idea, ignoring
the lessons of the Carlisle develop-
ment is tantamount to being cava-
lier about third rails on subways,
Winter Park Hospital employees
can't protect Central Park from
dozens of noisy buses circulating
daily unless they use the Florida
Hospital commuter rail stop, the
Florida Progress power deal sapped
Winter Park's financial resources
when David Strong was a private
citizen, and the Carlisle buyout was
caused by the negligence of a previ-
ous administration.
The Bradleys became engaged
in Central Park in 1989. Had Ken
Bradley asked for his wife's hand
when dozens of noisy commuter
rail buses start circulating in Cen-
tral Park on a daily basis, he'd be in
the same position I found myself
that night - trying to hear a yes or
no answer to a question.

project developers "back to the
drawing board."
Similar activities have taken
place in Winter Park. In 2006, when
David Strong ran against incum-
bent Mayor Kip Marchman, the big
issue was the condo development,
the Carlisle. David Strong won the
election by remaining civil and
constructive while opposing the
controversial Carlisle, an out-of-
scale complex threatening Central
Park and the village character of
Winter Park's downtown.
A developer himself, David
Strong did not campaign to stop
development, clearly an unrealis-
tic and irrational goal. Instead he
called for development that would
be in keeping with the unique
charm that has attracted people to
Winter Park for 125 years. To put it
another way, Mayor Strong and the
majority who supported him might
say: "Welcome to Winter Park.
Please Develop With Extraordinary
Care."

Citizens deserve choice
to use SunRail
Let me just simplify the rail issue
for Mr. Matt Falconer ("Commuter
rail may be a bad investment,"
published Feb. 5). It's about giving
us the citizens of Winter Park and
Central Florida the choice of tak-
ing Interstate-4 or not. Don't give
us this garbage that these things
(light rail) don't work; they work
all over the world in metropoli-
tan cities. And guess what? Cen-
tral Florida has grown up and
needs a system like this.
Fact: The rail is coming
through Winter Park whether
you like it or not. Fact: More than
52 percent of the citizens voted
in a special election to use city
land and money for a train stop
in Winter Park. When are the mi-
nority "know-it-alls" like you go-
ing to get out of the way of prog-
ress that can give us all choices
whether to use cars or not? I have
been here all my life and I would
like nothing better than to have
a choice to travel on a train to
the airport, Disney, work, magic
games, the beach - where ever
the tracks go I want that choice.
Or have people come from afar
to visit our shops and restaurants.
Winter Park was designed more
than 100 years ago as a pedestri-
an city; travel by rail was a valued
option as it should be today. Mr.
Falconer, quit feeding us fear.

City needs some perspective
on stonewalling


-Will Graves It's no wonder that Commission-
er Beth Dillaha ("Dillaha: Citi-
'd zens deserve clarity on rail deal,"
th published Jan. 29) said it seemed
)up called like Orange County was telling
ice per- the city of Winter Park to "pound
,000- sand." Paybacks are hell.
rvation In response to the county's
hee River apparent "stonewalling" on the
heir mas- city's demands for a rail funding
ral and agreement, Dillaha said, "They
e area. basically said that our concerns
ryJane Al- are of no concern to them and
press as that we should basically pound
accused sand. I have an issue with that."
rfare," the Hearken back to a meeting
I and deed that the city of Winter Park's
al growth." Brookshire Task Force, via Kit
nstruc- Pepper, called to roll out the
its battles, concept plans to swap the land
sending where Brookshire.Elementary


School sits for new residential
development. The concept plans
called for a realignment of Cady
Way and for bus traffic to use coun-
ty roads as a primary means of ac-
cess to the back of the new school
site where the Cady Way park ten-
nis courts currently sit.
Orange County residents who
would be impacted by the plan
were outraged by the city's ap-
parent lack of concern for their
county "neighbors" who would pay
the price of the land swap with bus
traffic on narrow roadways and po-
tential traffic backups into Winter
Park Pines.
When one county resident asked
Mayor David Strong if he was mak-
ing note of the comments he was
hearing, he tapped his forefinger to
his temple and said, "I have all the
comments right here."
To the county residents in the
audience we heard, "Go pound
sand."

WMFE's calamitous layoff
of Dave Glerum
WMFE Radio's layoff of Dave Gle-
rum was devastating and distress-
ing to so many of us listeners who
regard him as "Mr. Classical Music
of Central Florida." Dave was indel-
ibly linked with WMFE's mission
as Orlando's classical music sta-


SFLORIDA \<
11.- HOSPITAL. verllnwireless


tion. As past CEO and as a present
board member of the Festival of
Orchestras, I know that we will
miss Dave's enthusiastic radio sup-
port of our top world orchestras
presented in Orlando.
We realize that WMFE faces
severe financial challenges. But
Dave's release may well be ca-
lamitous and counterproductive
to enlisting continued and vitally
needed support from loyal listen-
ers and donors. The affinity of Dave
with WMFE was monumental. He is
not only a classical music icon and
a remarkably soothing and charm-
ing radio personality, but he adds
both the local and human touch
so positive and vitally needed for
WMFE's community image.
Because of Dave's profound and
long-time connection with WMFE's
music mission, we fear for WMFE's
future viability. We urge WMFE
management to reconsider its
decision and retain Dave. Friends
and associates have even offered
to contribute to a special fund
drive to raise money for his salary.
I would join others in gladly con-
tributing to such a drive. Whatever
it takes, our community and WMFE
cannot afford to lose Dave Glerum.

Bullets that

hit the mark
Dick Morris now tells
us that his most
frightening fear for
our future is not deflation,
but inflation. In Germany, I
chatted with older people
who remembered hav-
ing to bring hundreds of
thousands of Marks to the
grocery store to buy a loaf
of bread after World War I.
The U.S. government, in giv-
ing hundreds of billions of
dollars to private business,
is diluting the dollar in ev-
eryone's pocket.

Dreams do come true! In
1984, in our living room,
my b.w. and I founded
what became Festival of
Orchestras, and imagined


days far in the future when
we would go to the Bob
Carr, sit back, and listen to
world-class symphony or-
chestras without any longer
having the responsibility
of booking and delivering
them.
Hearing the exquisite
Budapest Festival Orchestra
last Saturday on the Fes-
tival of Orchestras series
brought my thoughts back
to 1984 when my b.w. and
I spent several days in Hun-
gary and especially enjoyed
our time in Budapest.
. Driving into that coun-
try from Austria, we waited
at the border in the blaz-
ing sunshine for a very
long hour (three?) while
our passports were being
scrutinized in a small build-
ing nearby. On either side
of our car were 30-foot-
high machine gun turrets
manned by uniformed sol-
diers.
Finally waved on, we
drove on a beautiful high-
way to Herend and bought
porcelain at the famous
factory there. Then on to
Budapest. We heard the Bu-
dapest Festival Orchestra in
its hall.
For 17 years - from
1984 to 2001 - we two
labored to get Festival of
Orchestras up and running.
Then we retired, leaving it
in other hands. The Festival
Board honored my b.w. and
me on Nov. 4, 2008, with
the Festival's 25th Anniver-
sary Banquet in the Johann
Straus Room of the Grand


Bohemian.
The other night, the Bob
Carr was Budapest for us all
over again - ah!, the power
of music to transcend time
and space! To boot, our
Festival of Orchestras is in
good hands, and that fact
makes us even happier!

Economist Ludwig von
Mises (1881-1973) wrote,
"People do not ask for so-
cialism because they know
that socialism will improve
their conditions, and they
do not reject capitalism be-
cause they know that it is a
system prejudicial to their
interests. They are socialists
because they believe that
socialism will improve their
conditions, and they hate
capitalism because they
believe that it harms them.
They are socialists because
they are blinded by envy
and ignorance."

It will be interesting to see
if Barack Obama finally
reveals himself to be the So-
cialist many of us believed
him to be from the start.

If it ain't broke, don't fix
it! Constantly referring to
such things as: "Rebuilding
...reshaping ... and restor-
ing our country," President
Obama has made me ner-
vous indeed. Though we
love progress, most Ameri-
cans also love what we
have done with our country
since 1776. The president
frequently squawks dis-
satisfaction about the


U.S.'s, status quo. What
"fundamental changes" are
you recommending, Mr.
Obama?
We certainly don't want
you to bring more:
1. Left-wing New Deal
bureaucracy
2. Expansion in an al-
ready too-large federal gov-
ernment
3. Outright taxpayer gifts
from our government to
private corporations
4. Secret agreements
beyond state-department
necessities
5. Tax evaders into your
financial regime

President Obama has said,
in effect, that "if govern-
ment works, it is good."
American philosopher Wil-
liam James called this kind
of thinking "pragmatism.
" (Let me add: If it works,
you're a hero; if it doesn't,
you're a bum.) I buy that,
Mr. Obama.

Bernard Goldberg's recent
book "A Slobbering Love
Affair" spotlights a practice
that endangers the valid-
ity of American political
reporting. Goldberg shows
how "the mainstream
media's hopelessly one-
sided coverage of President
Obama has shredded Amer-
ica's trust in journalism and
imperiled our free society."'
Goldberg refers exten-
sively to his exclusive inter-
view with Rush Limbaugh,
and dwells upon the rea-
sons why the liberal media


will never allow Barack
Obama to fail.
Using examples that are
hilarious to outrageous,
Goldberg tells how liberal
reporters ignore important
issues, focus on trivial mat-
ters, and attack those who
dare to question "The One."
Goldberg also weighs
the media's historic raison
d'etre, that of being a reli-
able arbiter of political
editorial comment, and of
public affairs. If these roles
are weakened, America's in-
terests will not be served.
"A Slobbering Love Af-
fair" illustrates how the me-
dia's overt love affair with
Barack Obama "has not
only surrendered the me-
dia's integrity and objectiv-
ity," but also now menaces
our country's democracy.

A guy was interviewing
boys to do a specific job for
him. He told every boy the
same story: "A cat was howl-
ing in my neighbor's back-
yard all night. I phoned
the neighbors, and no one
was home. At 3 a.m. I got
my rifle and shot at the
cat. The shot went through
the next-door neighbor's
window and hit an oil
lamp, starting a big fire."
He then asked each boy to
submit a question. Finally,
after some 20 interviews,
a small red-headed young-
ster asked, "Did you hit the
cat?" "You're hired," said the
man. (Point made?)

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.
