Cafe meeting

angers mayor

candidate
JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

Patricia Fox said a city councilman
and other citizens tried to talk her out
of running for Maitland mayor when
they met in a cafe last month. Three
of them said they were only trying
to help the newcomer get a grasp on
what the city's top seat entails.
Fox said just she and Councilman
Phil Bonus were scheduled to meet,
but Bonus arrived with fellow Coun-
cilman Jeff Flowers and three other
citizens; the conversation that en-
sued became inappropriate; but she
didn't consider it "intimidating."
"They were trying to dissuade me
... I don't think they came in to make
me run off into the sunset," she said.
Flowers, Dr. Mark Round and Re-
nee Stein Charlan said they went
along because they wanted to find
out more about the last-minute chal-
lenger by asking her questions about
her platform and why she decided to
run.
"The tenor was not to bully this
woman," Flowers said. "It was to find
out about this person no one had met
before."
But Fox said they made an effort
to change her mind about running
against incumbent Doug Kinson af-
ter discovering she didn't have a lot
of experience in Maitland affairs.
"Did I think it- was wrong? Yes, they
overstepped their boundaries abso-
lutely," she said.
Citizen attendee Chris Raleigh and
Bonus did not return calls for com-
ment.

School's pickup loop circles to solution


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

Since 2005, the pickup loop
at the Methodist School for
Early Education has been a
source of stress for many.
Before dismissal time,
parents' cars often filled up
the circular drive at Inter-
lachen-Avenue and backed
up onto the street, block-
ing traffic.
"It was quite a mess;
quite a logjam," said Mur-
ray Wilton, director of
operations for. the First
United Methodist Church
of Winter Park, which runs
the school for children age


2 through kindergarten.
The school shut down
the loop on Feb. 12 and an-
nounced it would be work-
ing with the city to alleviate
the problem. The use of the
church as a school is based
on a conditional-use permit
issued by the city. If a solu-
tion was not reached, the
city could have discontin-
ued the permit, closing the
55-year-old school.
"To this day, we continue
to receiveweekly, sometimes
daily calls regarding the traf-
fic congestion caused by the
parent pickup," Police Cap-
tain Brett C. Railey wrote in
a Feb. 7 memorandum to Di-

VII icOrange County schools , ,facing $102M cutv

Orange County schools facing $102M cut


The declining economy has
parents, teachers and ad-
ministrators in the Orange
County Public Schools sys-
tem worried about how a
nearly $6 billion dollar bud-
get cut could affect the fu-
ture of education.
For the next budget year,
2009-2010, the state of
Florida is looking at a $5.8
billion cut to education. Or-
ange County faces a $102
million cut, but even that
isn't a final figure.
"The dollar amount being
cut from our budget could
change any day," School
Board chairwoman Joie Ca-
die wrote in an e-mail.
That's led to unease
among those on the receiv-
ing end of the cuts, as they
prepare themselves for a
drastically reduced budget
for the coming school year.
Michele Erickson, prin-.
cipal of Glenridge Middle
School in Orlando, said she's
frustrated by the uncertain-
ty. "We have not received
any specific amount or per-
centages," Erickson wrote in
an e-mail. "We should know
around the middle of March
when our budgets come
out. There has been a lot of
discussion, but no final an-
swers are available."
Although this dollar
amount has officials and
school administrators wor-
ried, what has the parents,


teachers and students even
more distressed is where the
cuts could come from. The
three biggest items on the
"chopping block for cuts are:
teacher jobs, athletics and
the arts. Erickson said she
expects the extras such as
field trips and guest speak-
ers to fall victim.
"Every parent I talked to
is upset about what these
cuts might do to the quality
of their children's educa-
tion," said John, Miller, co-
president of the Winter Park
PTSA and coach at Winter
Park High School. "Students
are telling me that it's hard
to focus in class knowing
that their education might
suffer. And the teachers -
well they feel like they're
caught in the middle, like
they are not important."
Fellow Co-President Lau-
ra Toshie added that when
considering the cuts, she
hopes the school board will,
take every option seriously,
weigh them appropriately
and give the public time to
learn and respond to them.
Still, her fear is that students
will end up missing out.
"There are many pro-
grams offered in a school
the size of Winter Park High
School that offer opportuni-
ties for students who might
not excel in the classroom
to excel in another arena
- be it through sports, arts,

technology," Toshie said.
"I would hate to see any of
these programs cut com-
pletely.
"Can we scale back in
these tough times? Perhaps.
It's not something that any-
one wants to see - change
is difficult. But if cuts and
changes truly save the dis-
trict the millions of dollars
they need to make their
budget, what choice do we
have?"
Still, parents wonder
where the School Board will
draw the line. -
"It seems like they are
making knee-jerk decisions
instead of trying to keep up
the quality of education,"
said mother of two Blanche
Marie Lewis. "Frankly, I'm
very frustrated by the whole
thing. There are many stud-
ies and surveys that have
determined 'that the best
approach to learning has to
include active participation
in the fine arts and physical
activities - at every level.
So I find it very frustrating
that they want to cut these
classes."
Lewis added'that if legis-
lators want Florida's school
children to succeed, the
arts and sports must stay in
place. "The School Board's
decisions should enhance
the education of the stu-
dents, not be detrimental,"
she said.
Lewis' son, Winter Park
senior Mark Lewis, 18,
echoed his mother's senti-


ment.
"Being an IB student, I'm
worried that some of the
higher level courses will get
cut," Mark said. "And being
in band, I certainly don't
want the arts program to be
cut either.
"The arts help a great deal
with mental processes and
studies show that students
that participate in music
programs tend to do better
in other aspects of school."
As a result of budget con-
cerns, grass-roots education
group Orange County Com-
munity Organized to Res-
cue Education, or CORE, has
seen its membership rise
from 10 community mem-
bers when it was started in
2008 to a roughly 10,000-
person e-mail list and more
than 200-member Face-
book group.
"Parents, teachers, guid-
ance counselors, social
workers, media specialists
and virtually every other
kind of frontline work-
er have told us the same
thing," said Mary Jo Markel,
member of the CORE Board
of Directors. "It boils down
to this: We understand that
the cuts required are drastic,
but the schools have already
been cut to the core. Before
you ask -parents, students
or school-based workers to
make more sacrifices, you
need to make truly drastic
cuts in non-school-based
administration."

gan joined CORE to support
flipping the flip - returning
to last year's school starting
times - and is now con-
cerned about possible cuts
to programs that are needed
for her disabled son.
"I don't believe that the
funds are being handled
properly," Morgan said. "If
they were, we would not
have this problem. I'm not
going to let go of this until I
see a good change."
And the community
has been suggesting many
changes that could save the
county money. More than
600 suggestions ranging
from combining schools
into grades K-8 and 9-12
to cutting freshman-only
sports teams have been sug-
gested by Orange County
residents.
Miller suggested that
another way to achieve
change is to contact legis-
lators, much like the pro-
test at Timber Creek High
on Saturday, Feb. 21, where
parents, teachers and stu-
dents gathered to sign let-
ters that will be mailed to
Tallahassee.
"People need to speak
up," Miller said. "Write to
their legislators, bug their
representatives. Lawmakers
need to know that they can-
not take away from educa-
tion without a consequence
- the threat of not being re-
elected."

starting line of the Run Around the Pines 5k race Saturday. More than 1,300
racers finished the annual 5k race, which is in its 14th year. Children also got
a chance to participate, running in a smaller race after the 5k. The event also
-helped raise money for charity, including Soles for Souls, which collected used
shoes to donate to the needy.

Business


Winter Park resident Deborah Jal-
lad, owner of Orlando-based Ac-
credited Surety & Casualty Compa-
ny, has been named a top entrepre-
neur by Enterprising Women mag-
azine. The publication acknowledged
winners in five categories based on
revenue - and because Accredited's
annual sales exceeded $25 million,
Jallad received the top distinction.
She, along with the other winners,
will be given a "2009 Enterprising
Women of the Year Award" during a


three-day tribute from March 11 to 13
at Disney's Yacht Club in Lake Buena
Vista.

Keene Construction Company in
Maitland, one of America's larg-
est retail contractors, completed
the new 45,000-square-foot Publix
at Walden Woods at 2204 James L.
Redmond Parkway in Plant City, in
Hillsborough County. Developed by
RMC Property Group, Tampa, the re-
development project was designed


by Cuhaci & Peterson Architects, Or-
lando, and involved demolition of an
existing Publix, construction of the
new Publix store, as well as a new
canopy for the adjacent retail stores.
Notably, Keene has constructed over
140 Publix stores for the Lakeland,
FL-based grocery giant.

Ashton Woods Homes, which
builds new homes in five neighbor-
hoods in the Windermere area and
two more in Seminole County, re-


ported net sales of 179 new homes

Michael Roche, vice president of
sales for Ashton Woods Homes in
the Orlando region, said the average

LOOP I Solution to traffic problem at school is opening second pickup area


< continued from the front page

rector of Building George Wiggins.
The loop opened again Monday
on a trial basis, Wilton said, after a
second pickup area was opened on
Lincoln Avenue. "It's been working
out very well during the last couple
of days ... It's a great solution for us
and the community," he said.
The city began receiving com-


plaints from drivers in 2005, and
the problem never got better, Rai-
ley wrote. Often there were .five
to 10 cars blocking the roadway, a
major safety hazard. "This lack of
movement causes frustration,. and
drivers commonly break out of the
stagnant line of vehicles and drive
head on into opposing traffic to get
around the blockage."
When the city began placing po-
lice officers at the site, most parents


circled around the block until the
backup subsided. "I fear that once
officers are not at the intersection
on a daily basis, traffic congestion
will revert back to its daily state," he
wrote.
The resolution reached by the
city and the school includes the
opening of the second loop, parent
education, crossing guard training,
and making signage and crosswalks
more visible, city spokeswoman


Clarissa Howard wrote in an e-mail.
"This will be monitored for the
next -few weeks," she wrote, "and
hopefully these measures will take
care of the congestion and safety
concerns the city has been experi-
encing."
If it doesn't work, Wilton said,
"We go back to the drawing board."


It's business.

Winter Park resident Cathaleen
Nelson Graham has earned an
Associate in Applied Science in
Nursing degree from Excelsior Col-
lege, an accredited, private, nonprofit
institution that focuses on the needs


of working adults. Its primary mission
is to increase access to a college de-
gree for adult learners by removing

The Orange County Health Depart-
ment would like to remind the
community to get their flu shot
now, if they have not done so already.
Flu activity in the United States and
in Florida generally peaks between
December and March, so getting vac-
cinated even during this time can be
beneficial.
People can obtain their flu vac-


cine at the Orange County Health
Department, 832 W. Central Blvd. in
Orlando. Vaccines are available from
7:30 -11:30 a.m. and 1:00-2:30 p.m.
Monday - Thursday; and 7:30 a.m. to
noon on Fridays. Cost is $30 for flu
shots. Visit www.orchd.com for more
information or call 407-836-2517.

The Orange County Health De-
partment in partnership with the
Department of Highway Safety &
Motor Vehicles has opened a brand
new office that will make it easier
for people to obtain their birth cer-


tificate when they need it most. The
new vital statistics office is located in-
side the driver licenses office at 4101
Clarcona-Ocoee Road in Orlando. This
is the first driver licenses office in the
state of Florida to offer this service.
Birth certificates can also be ob-
tained at Winter Park Memorial Hos-
pital at 200 Lakemont Avenue, Winter
Park; and Winnie Palmer Hospital at
44 Lake Beauty Drive, 4th Floor, Or-
lando.
The cost for a certified birth cer-
tificate is $14. For more information,
please call 407-445-5594.


RAIL I New numbers for commuter rail include 30-year operating costs


< continued from the front page

sections or any analytical data she
has from FDOT," she said.
Repeated calls for comment
to FDOT commuter rail project
manager Tawny Olore went unan-
swered.
The new numbers have Winter
Park City Commissioner Beth Dil-
laha wondering why the deal is be-
ing pursued without more scrutiny
of its financial implications. Dillaha
had previously called into question
the costs of the system, which she
said were too high for the state to
afford.
"I have never been in favor of the
taxpayers being taken advantage
of," Dillaha said.


The new dollar figure released
by Dockery included the already
known $491 million in track acqui-
sition costs from rail company CSX,
plus $615.4 million in capital costs,
including $150 million to build five
rail overpasses near Ocala and $397
million for rail cars. Counties are
expected to pay more than $207
million of that.
The newest addition to those fig-
ures is a $947.7 million cost for op-
erations and maintenance over the
course of the next 30 years.
At the start of March the Florida
Legislature will begin deliberating
the financial liabilities of the plan,
but Dockery said the state's deal to
buy tracks from CSX - the most ex-
pensive acquisition per mile in U.S.


history - isn't being questioned.
"It is unfortunate that for a deal
of this magnitude, the only ques-
tion facing the Florida Legislature
is whether to force taxpayers to pay
for the negligence of a Fortune 500
company," Dockery wrote in a re-
leased statement.
Dillaha said that the state is seem-
ingly ignoring precedents set by
other cities' commuter rail systems,
in which their ridership resulted in
little return to help pay for the sys-
tems. That would seriously skew
financial figures in how the FDOT
and local governments expected to
pay for the system in the future.
"What's interesting about some
of this is ... FDOT is estimating that
$510 million will be recovered from


fare revenue, or about 54 percent,"
Dillaha said. "With South Florida's
Tri-Rail it's only 15 percent. The na-
tional average is about 23 percent. I
was talking about this a few months
ago, and I was saying, 'Gosh guys, 50
percent operating cost recovery is a
pretty high estimate.'"
Diebel said she hopes that the
Legislature will listen to the engi-
neers who studied the project, and
pass funding for SunRaiL
"It's easy for Commissioner Dil-
laha to say it's wrong because she
looked at another system, but
there's a reason we studied our im-
pact locally," Diebel said. "I simply
trust the FDOT and the FTA and also
the historical basis that we have in
our [cost and ridership] forecast."


DISSUADED I Cost, other issues cited as source of candidates' questioning


< continued from the front page

Fox was questioned
about her background and
level of experience, but then
the conversation turned to
. the downside of Maitland
holding an election, said
Planning And Zoning Com-
missioner Dale McDonald,
who helped Fox get signa-
tures to qualify for the elec-
tion.
Brought up was the
$13,500 cost to the city for
Supervisor of Elections Of-
fice services and materi-
als, and the thousands of
dollars of campaign con-
tributions and volunteer
time required to run a cam-
paign, Flowers and Dr. Mark
Round said.


"I got some sense of resis-
tance to her running at all
and even-it being inappro-
priate," McDonald said. "It
seemed to steal her resolve
a little. It was an awkward
setting ... I don't think there
was any intent to bully any-
one."
Flowers said none of
the. questions asked were
unreasonable and it was
a strategizing session that
Fox stood only to benefit
from. "It wasn't, 'Oh, we're
going to intimidate you,'" he
said. "We were coming on in
a politically astute manner,
'Is this what you want to
do?' It was clear she was na-
ive about a lot of stuff."
Fox said she's still learn-
ing about the issues - at a
candidates' forum she de-


Maitland mayoral candidates Doug Kinson and Patricia Fox will par-
ticipate in a meet the candidates forum at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5,
hosted by the Maitland Area Chamber of Commerce. It is at the Mait-
land Civic Center at 641 S. Maitland Ave. The election is March 10. .


lined to answer three ques-
tions - but that she didn't
ask this group for guidance.
"To give help, one must ask
for it... I'm not experienced,
I don't purport to be."
Round said Fox was told
to talk to the city's depart-
ment heads to become bet-
ter educated. "It was never
said to her that she had no
business running," he said.
"She is very welcome to run
for whatever. Here we are


weeks later and I was hop-
ing she'd get up to speed -
and I'm still hoping."
Renee Stein Charlan
said her attendance at the
meeting was also a case of
curiosity and not meant as
a bullying tactic. She said
she did question Fox's mo-
tivations for running, citing
that many of her support-
ers are former Kinson sup-
porters, who, she said, have
their own agenda.


"I just said to her, 'I hope
you are not being used by
them because you're only
going to get hurt in the pro-
cess, and you really need to
think about why you are
running,"' Charlan said.
Fox said she was not hap-
py that people she didn't
know were telling her she
was taking the wrong ap-
proach in her campaign.
"You don't assume some-
one is your BFF when you
haven't really met them,"
she said. "You don't go up to
someone on the street and
say, 'You really shouldn't
wear that dress.'"
Fox said she isn't hold-
ing a grudge. "I want to let it
go," she said. "I have a lot of
other things to concentrate
on."

Wildcats bound for regionals


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The Winter Park Wildcats
are into the regional cham-
pionship after battling their
way through two tough lo-
cal teams. And with big wins,
they've proven themselves
worthy of a state champi-
onship run.
"It feels really good,"
Winter Park power forward
Adam Jones said. "Last year
we made it to the final four
and came close, and we're
almost there again."
They faced Oviedo for
the first time in years last
Thursday when the two
teams met on Winter Park's
home court.
And then it was Austin
Rivers' time to shine. The
Winter Park phenom led the
team in scoring yet again, on
the way to a 64-56 win.
"We had nobody who
could chase him," Oviedo
Coach Ed Kershner said.
"He's just that good."
But it wasn't always that
way, as the Lions stunned
the Wildcats by leading
the game for the first three
quarters.
Only in the final quarter


after the Lions lost a point
guard to a concussion did
they finally fall behind the
Wildcats.
And it was in that decisive
quarter that the Wildcats
took command, launching
into a scoring run that took
them up to their biggest
lead of the night just as the
clock struck zero.
Against Winter Springs in
the semifinal round Tuesday
night, the Wildcats found
themselves unexpectedly
dominant against a team
that'd been used to domi-
nating foes all season.
The Bears hadn't faced
the Wildcats all season, and
the two teams immediately
clashed in playing style.
By the end, the crowd
was already cheering on the
obvious victors, who had led
the game for much of their
time on the court. The final
62-46 score underscored the
Wildcats' dominance over a
team that'd won 71-49 in its
previous game.
Now the Wildcats face
their next big challenge
against Olympia. The Titans
beat Dr. Phillips in a tight
57-53 game Tuesday night.
They'll face off in Wildcat


territory again, as Winter
Park continues to enjoy its
homestand advantage dur-
ing the playoffs.
That's shaping up to be
the Wildcats' biggest chal-
lenge in the playoffs so far.
In their region the Wildcats
have only lost to one team
this year. That team was
Olympia, in a 66-60 win on
the Titans' court. Now it's
the Wildcats' turn to have
the home court advantage
- a good luck charm so far.
They tip off 7 p.m. Saturday.


rlTi.,s i ISAAC BABCOCK - THI i:,e$FEI.H,
Coach David Bailey cheers on his Winter Park Wildcats as they play the Oviedo Lions
on Thursday night. TheWildcats would win their first round of the regional championship
before beating the Winter Springs Bears 62-46 at home Tuesday night.


Winter Park comprehensive plan's final battle


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Commissioners went into
overtime Monday night to
pass Winter Park's first com-
prehensive plan amend-
ment in 18 years. But as the
process had proven already,
there were still more hur-
dles to climb.
The Commission. was
all ears for a final volley of
public complaints about


what the. comprehensive
plan amendment did and
did not do to help keep the
city's character while allow-
ing for development.
One man made his points
clearer than most, calling
the plan an attack on prop-
erty rights..
Don Madden from the
Coalition for Property
Rights said that the cur-*
rent plan had too many re-
strictions, and said it went
against what the founding


fathers of the city would
have wanted. He laid his
thoughts out for the Com-
mission over the course of
nearly 10 minutes.
"When Americans are
allowed to pursue their
dreams, we all win," Mad-
den said. "Winter Park got
where it is because land-
owners were free to make
individual decisions about
their own land. This com-
prehensive plan should do
no less."


But restrictions on build-
ing code and floQr area ra-
tios kept commissioners
and residents talking for
well beyond the original
afternoon meeting time,
as the final issues were pol-
ished and adapted.
Monday night's meeting
was the last of a long process
to adopt the plan, which
had evolved over the course
of more than a year beyond
an originally rejected plan
that the state had deemed


illegal.
"We'll go over all this be-
fore the night is over," May-
or David Strong said.
And in the final meeting
for the plan, the Commis-
sion debated and clarified
the last few issues regard-
ing the downtown Central
Business District. And with
the passing of the compre-
hensive plan, the long pro-
cess finally reached the end
of the road.

Glass festival comes to town


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

Glassmaker David Osburn
carefully rolls the molten
glass in a white powder and
holds it to the flame. After
dabbing the liquid in a fire-
red color, he inserts a tube
into the top and begins to
blow air into the delicate
material.
The finished piece will
be a vase, decanter, bowl or
figurine with one-of-a-kind
coloring.
"I can layer five or six col-
-ors and swirl it," Osburn,
owner of Osburn Modern
Glass in West Virginia said.
"You never know what it's
going to look like color-
wise; it's amazing."
Osburn, a hand-blown
glass craftsman for 36 years,
is the featured artist at the
Festival of Glass at the Mait-
land Civic Center the week-
end of March 7. In addition
to displaying his pieces, he
will be there from 10 a.m.
to whenever the last guest
leaves, revealing his tech-
niques.
"A lot of people ask like
it's a big secret, but no two
people make glass the same,"
he said. "It takes a long time
to learn the process, so why
not tell 'em so they have a
better appreciation for it?"
Before Osburn opened


his own shop, he worked at
Blenko Glass where as mas-
ter artist, designer and glass
blower he made glass for
projects around the world.
He even made windows for
the White House in the late
1980s, a project he didn't
agree to initially.
"It was a massive under-
taking. I said 'I don't want to
get involved with that,'" he
said with a laugh.
But after a special request
for him was made, he agreed
to "try a few of them," and
ended up doing the whole
25-window project, he said.
The 30-by-16-inch plate
glass panels had to.be com-
pletely bubble-free, which is
difficult to do when they're
being hand-blown.
"Some of the smallerpiec-
es take one big lung full and
you got it," he said. "These
things were rather large ... it
makes it have just a bit of a
wave in it - you see where
you caught your breath."
Osburn said his pieces are
less expensive than many
artists' because he doesn't
have the overhead costs
that many companies have.
"It's just me and my daugh-
ter and one more," he said
of his employees. Intricate
pieces can range from $700
to $800, but there are pieces
available for as low as $10.
The average price "range is

$50 to $75.
Glenn Swigart, Maitland
Civic Center administrator,
said this is Osburn's first ex-
hibit in the city.
"The fact that he's coming
down to help with the show
is a very big plus," Swigart
said. "It's a good chance for
people to come in and meet
the artist and buy pieces at a
reasonable price."


The Festival of Glass comes to the Maitland Civic Center at 641 S.
Maitland Ave., from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, March 7 and 10
a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday March 8. The free festival features master
glass craftsman David Osburn, who will be on hand during the event
to talk to folks interested in glass-making techniques. Visit festivalof-
glass.com for more information.

Iaae 8w T.uI.- a.br y 20i k M d sv


This past Saturday, Maitland
Little League brought to-
gether boys and girls of all
ages, with one of the most
enjoyable and energetic
events during the course of
the year - Maitland Little
League opening day.
The day started bright


and early with the tradi-
tional parade that began at
Maitland Middle School and
continued through down-
town, along Maitland Bou-
levard, along Sandspur Road
and ending at the Maitland
Ballfield Complex on Keller
Road. From fire trucks to


police cruisers to all of the
vehicles and boats decked
out with children and trim-
mings, this event was one
that will be remembered!
Once at the complex,
people enjoyed hamburgers
and hotdogs, cooked once
again by the Maitland Men's
Club - and best of all, they
were free! There were games
for kids of all ages to enjoy,
even some for the parents!
Maitland Little League
has a long tradition, in our
community and has pro-
vided guidance and direc-
tion for our children both
on and off the field for over
45 years. Each and every
year, Maitland Little League
serves nearly 400 players,
hosts over 600 games, and
is recognized as one of the
area's leading programs.


Maitland Little League is
a non-profit, all-volunteer
organization that exists
for the benefit of our chil-
dren such that our coaches
may teach them teamwork,
sportsmanship, fair play,
and - most of all - how
to enjoy the game. For gen-
erations, Little League has
taught our children hon-
esty, courage, loyalty and re-
spect. A child's dream of be-
coming a superstar pales in
comparison with the life's
lessons learned on the base-
ball field.
The city of Maitland is
proud of its rich history with
Maitland Little League and
works diligently to provide
high-quality, well-main-
tained fields our players and
families can enjoy. The city
regularly gets e-mails not-


ing how the fields compare
to professional fields across
the country. Our mainte-
nance personnel work very
hard to make sure the fields
are in top-notch shape
throughout the year.
Many thanks go out to
Debbie Tralka, president,
Maitland Little League
Board of Directors; to all the
parents who dedicate their
time; and to all the financial
and in-kind sponsors who
make events like this possi-
ble. Without your effort and
support, our families could
not enjoy such a wonderful
day!
See you at the next city of
Maitland event!

Revitalization Pilot Pro-
gram (Main Street Program)
and Initiative 4: Economic
Gardening/Virtual Business
Incubation with the Univer-


sity of Central Florida Tech-
nology Incubator (UCFTI)
were both tabled for con-
sideration in April.

Feb. 23 City Commission

A full copy of the Feb. 23
City Commission minutes
will be available on the city's
official Web site at Cityof-
WinterPark.org the week of
March 9, pending approval
by the City Commission.

Proposed Charter
amendments
On Jan. 12, the Winter Park
City Commission approved
Ordinance #2758-09 pro-
posing an amendment to
the city Charter. The pro-
posed amendments to the
Charter are as follows and
will be placed to a vote at
the general election held
Tuesday, March 10:
Amending Section 1.02
of the city Charter so that a
change in the legal bound-
aries of the city arising from
annexation is not required
to be published in the Char-
ter, but instead only pub-
lished as with other adopt-
ed ordinances. (Currently
the legal boundaries section
of the Charter consumes
about 46 pages and must be
amended and re-codified
each time there is an annex-
ation or de-annexation.)
Amending Section 2.04
of the city Charter so that
the term of office of com-
missioners or the mayor
begin with the first City
Commission meeting fol-
lowing certification of the
election results. (Commis-
sion meetings were moved
from Tuesdays to Mondays
several years ago but the


term of office of new com-
missioners was not changed
in the Charter to reflect that
change.)
Amending Section
2.08(b) of the city Charter
to delete the word "journal"
from the subtitle and delete
the second sentence of the
subsection. (The Charter
currently requires a jour-
nal of official actions of the
City Commission be kept in
addition to minutes of the
meetings. This - provision
would eliminate this dupli-
cate effort.)
Amending Section 3.03
of the city Charter to reflect
that the Supervisor of Elec-
tions may control the form
of the ballot for city elec-
tions. (The Orange County
Supervisor of Elections al-
ready does this. This would
modify the Charter to com-
ply.)
Amending Section
3.04(d) of the city Charter
to provide that the Supervi-
sor of Elections may select
and hire an appropriate
number of poll workers,
deleting requirement that
the city clerk determine the
appropriate number and
report number and names
of poll workers to the City
Commission. (Allowing the
Orange County Supervi-
sor of Elections to control
this process saves the city
money and provides better
trained election workers for
city elections.)
Amending Section
3.04(e) of the City Charter
so that three members of
the City Commission make
up the city Canvassing
Board, with the city clerk
as an alternate member in-
stead of a specially appoint-
ed alternate member. (Cur-
rently the City Commission
has to appoint a citizen
representative to serve on
the Canvassing Board for


each seat that is up for elec-
tion. This change would re-
duce the required size of the
Canvassing Board so that
appointment of additional
members is not necessary.)
If approved by a vote of
the electors of the city of
.Winter Park, the proposed
amendments will take ef-
fect upon certification of
the election and the ordi-
nance shaol become effec-
tive immediately upon pas-
sage and adoption.

Earth-friendly designs come to Park Ave.


KRISTY VICKERY
GUEST IHEPUFi:T.-:

The signs of economic troubles
can be measured throughout the
cityof Winter Park by the number
of closing retail stores, but in these
tough times, there's a glimpse of
hope at 300 N. Park Ave.
The new earth-friendly re-
tail store, Earth Inspired Living,
opened on Jan. I', and owners
.Allan and Linda Semmler have
high hopes in these tough times.
"We are definitely aware of the
market, but we still believe that
somebody has to do it." Linda said
of opening a new business. "If we
can do it now, then we will be
great when we come out of it."
Every product found in the
store is made from recycled, or-
ganic or sustainable materials.
Recycled tires made into end ta-
bles, picture frames made from
magazines, bags made from sail-
boat sails, and baskets made from
candy wraps are just some of the
many recycled products found in
the store.
There are also a wide range of
organic products, such as natural
cleaning products, biodegradable


sponges, soaps and lotions.
The Semmlers are hoping their
unique approachwill ensure Earth
Inspired Living's success. "We try
to make sure nothing we bring
in [to the store] is represented on
Park Avenue, so we're not infring-
ing on other retailers." Linda said.
"We want to help everybody, not
necessarily take business away."
The store's environmentally
conscious concept is new to \\in-
ter Park but has received a warm
welcome so far, they said. "I think
it's the wave of the future," Linda
said. "'And when you walk up and
down the street, you are not going
to see our products elsewhere."
The idea for the store was in-
spired by the Semmlers' many
years of success in corporate-
driven retailing. Allan has over-
seen multiple stores for Edison
Brothers, and Linda spent four
years with The Nature Company.
and most recently she was a se-
nior vice president of a Reader's
Digest division.
Although the Semmlers appre-
ciate the experience they gained
working for other companies,

Opinion/


"We learn from history that
we learn nothing from his-
tory."
- G.B. Shaw

Americans have such a
distorted, exalted sense of
themselves and our history
that we believe we are ex-
empt from the "forces" of
history that have brought
low every nation and civi-
lization before us. That's
a fact, Jack. This is not to
say that our history doesn't
have glorious moments
of exceptionalism; wit-
ness our nation's birth - a
creation midwifed by men
extraordinary to any period
in time.
I am proud of America
for electing Barack Obama
president. I am proud of my
birth state, Iowa, for giv-
ing Obama a "chance" to
seriously run for the presi-
dency. An overwhelmingly
white state said "Yes, we
can" have a black president.
I am proud of our way of
governance that allows for
peaceful transitions be-
tween governments. I am
proud of America for large-
ly removing religion from
the table of how we govern
ourselves. America is the
culminating fruition (to
this point in history) of the
innate human impulse for
individual rights (freedom),


a largely Western cultural
experience that can trace
its "roots" back to Greece.
We have arrived "where"
we are by intent and by ac-
cident. I've been reading of
late on the Reformation.
Martin Luther (arguably the
worst anti-Semite in histo-
ry) unleashed more than he
could have ever imagined
when he confronted the
Catholic Church with all its
15th century corruption.
The Protestant churches
that bloomed during this
time were inadvertently
a catalyst for change for
women. Priests could now
marry. Imagine that? Think
about the change in the
status of women that that
simple act implied.
More importantly,
women were now "permit-
ted" to learn to read so they
too could appreciate God's
infinite wisdom in newly
printed, vernacular Bibles
(thank you, Martin Luther).
Give a woman a book and
stand back. They might
even imagine, over time,
they are equal. Imagine
that.
It was a revelation that
a priesthood of men was
not necessary to know God.
Imagine that?
Inexorably, we have ar-
rived in 21st century Amer-
ica, living as free as any hu-


nians have ever lived since
the inception of author-
ity (human governance,
whether it be king, tribal
leader, emperor, sultan,
etc.). But even though we
find ourselves today with
.such unparalleled freedom
(historically speaking), it
doesn't mean it is a given
that that will always be the
case.
History is about so many
steps forward and so many
steps back. I have always
been curious about the sta-
tus of women. I consider
myself an unapologetic
feminist. Why will the Is-
lamic world remain inevi-
tably mired in Third World
poverty? Because half of
their good minds are im-
prisoned in archaic, male-
dominated cultures. There
is no equality of the sexes.
It is profoundly sad for that
part of the world and has
such tragic implications for
the rest of the planet.
Think about it. My
grandmother, a woman
from Iowa, was "given"
the right to vote decades
after freed slave men were.
America was once so mi-
sogynistic that former male
slaves were given the vote
before her "free" mothers
and daughters. Granted, "it"
was all wrong, but it does
give one pause to consider
how the home of the free
was sadly an all-male pre-
serve.
There once was a civili-
zation in 7th-century B.C.
Italy that research today
is showing had incredible,
unparalleled freedom for
its female citizens. The
Etruscans were eventually
absorbed by Rome, but for a
few brief centuries women
flourished as they seldom
have/had in history. Sigh.
Things come. Things go.


Nations rise. Nations fall.
Freedoms ascend. Free-
doms descend.
History doesn't care
one iota whether the "ex-
periment" we call America
(home) flourishes. History
is indifferent.
Barack Obama is my
president and I am pro-
foundly glad he is. He is
making choices, however,
that I feel will take the na-
tion in the wrong direction.
His economic team is little
more than a collection of
privileged insiders, of Ivy
League shills (think Trea-
sury Secretary Geithner) for
the corporate interests that
have manifestly corrupted
the nation's economy in
the first place. I am uncon-
vinced that these men have
my interests and the rest of
the nation's interests first
and foremost when they
devise public economic
policy.
Worse to me, President
Obama is pursuing a policy
in the Middle East that is
foolish and tragic. He has
committed to sending
thousands of more troops
to Afghanistan, an impover-
ished, misogynistic Islamic
hellhole that reminds me
of the tar baby that Br'er
Rabbit found so difficult to
extract himself from in Dis-
ney's "Song of the South."
What is it about men
(community activists no
less) that have them so
quickly marching around
saluting people as they get
off helicopters? Does it in-
evitably fog your brain to
have people constantly sa-
lute and say, "Yes, Sir!" Sure,
Obama is commander-in-
chief. Obama is a civilian.
Salute the generals (an
officer) if you must. Not
the president. I laughed
out loud every time I saw


that little banty rooster of
a President Bush salute. It
was comical except it was
so tragic.
By expanding the war
in Afghanistan, it is now
Obama's War. This has
such tragic implications
for his administration
and America. America is
going to achieve what in
Afghanistan? Pakistan just
turned over an area the size
of Delaware (within Paki-
stan) to the Taliban. Tell
me again, the Taliban will
do what if left to their own
devices? And Pakistan did
what? And we are going to
achieve what where? Bring
our forces home now. Leave
the Middle East. Now.
"The main thing history
can teach us is that human
actions have consequences
and that certain choices,
once made, cannot be un-
done. They foreclose the
possibility of making other
choices and thus they de-
termine future events." -
Gerda Lerner, historian.
I chose to believe-what
Gerda Lerner asserts rather
than what George Ber-
nard Shaw says about his-
tory. Obama has decided
to ignore what there was
to learn regarding foreign
invasions of Afghanistan.
Sadly so. Obaina's War in
Afghanistan will have con-
sequences, domestically
and internationally. Again,
sadly so.
How about a staff histo-
rian, or two, or three in the
White House?

Letters to


Councilman owes an
apology, and his resignation
The recent article in the Orlando
Sentinel about Maitland Council-
man Jeff Flowers and his attempt
to intimidate mayoral candidate
Patricia Fox out of the race has
disgusted many residents of our
city. But my first thought was this
actually might be part of Flowers'
political strategy: Find a way onto
City Council, serve a couple terms
as part of the most inept leadership
in Maitland history, drive the city
to near bankruptcy while doing
so, and then bully any "outsider"
candidates in future elections by
telling them we're just too broke to
run a proper election!
The fact is this man might be a
genius and is clearly ahead of the
curve when it comes to small-time
politicians in the 21st century.
Just think - with this strategy,
Chavez wouldn't have had to sweat
out that pesky term-limits refer-
endum in Venezuela over the past
weekend!
In all honesty, I didn't think the
guy could possibly embarrass him-


self and our city any more than he's
already done in recent years. But
this incident represents a new low.
It's time Mr. Flowers offers her a
formal public apology and - after
that - resigns his position on City
Council. He has become a liability
in a time where Maitland finds it-
self dangerously short of available
assets. In every sense of the word.

Rough roads are driving
business away from Winter Park
In the Feb. 12 issue of the Observer
you had an article about why Win-
ter Park is losing customers ("City
ponders stimulus for Avenue"). I
live on the south end of Winter
Park, off Winter Park Road. To get
to town, I have to go down Lake
Sue Drive, and either go down
Pennsylvania Avenue or Sterling
Road and Lakeview Drive. Lake
Sue, Pennsylvania and Lakeview
are the rough brick that only a sa-
dist would wish on its citizens. The
pavement on Sterling is so rough
that you have to go about 5 mph.


In addition, there are six four-way
stop signs one way and three the
other.
It is a lot easier for me to go to
Fashion Square Mall and the res-
taurants on Colonial Drive than to
go to Winter Park. This may not be
the main reason people don't shop
in Winter Park, but it is at least a
contributing factor.

Sentinel based Bradley
endorsement on rail stance
The endorsement of candidates by
local newspapers is an American
tradition as old as the Republic it-
self. Today, however, the influence
of such endorsements is close to
nil thanks to voters' distrust of the
news media and less than open-
minded investigative journalism.
Recently, the Orlando Sentinel
endorsed Ken Bradley over David
Strong for mayor of Winter Park.
Members of the editorial board
clearly had already made up their
minds long before any interviews
with the two candidates took


place. The public is all too aware
of the Sentinel's commuter-rail-at-
any-cost position, and Ken Bradley
seemed the more willing to have
a stop in Winter Park regardless
of whether commuter rail might
become a fiscal liability for Winter
Park citizens.
The Sentinel's suggestion that
Mayor Strong is intent upon "dis-
mantling projects and evening
scores" was most unfair. If the
Sentinel editors had attended any
of the Commission meetings, they
would have concluded that Mayor
Strong approaches all matters in
an open and even-handed manner.
His recent vote in favor of com-
muter rail for Winter Park is just
one good example.
The divisiveness that the Senti-
nel seems to want to resurrect has
generally disappeared, save for a
very few extremists. Under Mayor
Strong, tle people of Winter Park
are now working together to main-
tain the characteristics that have
made our town so attractive to resi-
dents and visitors alike.

< continued from last page
I am reminded of the bank
customer who upon receiving an
insufficient funds notice wrote
back to his bank asking if it wasn't
the bank that had insufficient
funds. Mayor Strong has steadily
improved Winter Park's finances
under difficult conditions left by
a previous regime. The Sentinel
should do as well to get its own
house in order.
Though the Sentinel's endorse-
ment centered on commuter rail,
I would point out that this is only
one of the many issues involved in
the good management of our city. I
support David Strong for mayor.

Bring investor money to
Florida transportation projects
America is in a recession, and
Floridians have not been spared.
Florida's unemployment rate is 8.1
percent, higher than the national
rate of 7.2 percent. It seems as if
every day, newspapers throughout
the state report layoffs by Florida'
companies. Last year, Florida lost
255,000 jobs.
Times are tough, and the full
attention of our elected leaders
should be given to economic re-
covery, transition and job growth.
While Florida is faced with the
same economic challenges as the
rest of the nation, we are fortunate
to have a governor who under-
stands the need to invest in long-
term transportation solutions even
in these tough times.
Last year, Gov. Charlie Crist an-
nounced his Accelerate Florida
program to advance investment
in infrastructure projects that will
create jobs and encourage eco-
nomic growth. The wisdom of the
governor's initiative is evidenced
by the strong return on investment
generated by infrastructure proj-
ects. For example, for every dollar
invested in transportation projects,
$5.60 in economic benefit is gained.
That is a smart investment.
In addition to backing the Accel-
erate Florida initiative, the Florida


Chamber of Commerce joined Gov.
Crist in his call for national leaders
to invest in our state's more than $7
billion in shovel-ready transporta-
tion projects that can be started in
less than four months, delivering a
quick return on investment.
Along with those important
projects, our state has even more
work to do to prepare our transit
infrastructure before we add an-
other 7 million residents by the
year 2030. Florida must continue
to diversify and expand its mix of
transit solutions to move goods
and people.
One significant transit solu-
tion Florida should build upon is
the expansion of commuter rail.
While commuter rail systems are
being planned in several regions,
the Central-Florida region's pro-
posed SunRail system provides the
most immediate opportunity for
construction activity that could le-
verage federal funding and quickly
create thousands of jobs.
Not only will this project have
an economic benefit for the whole
state - by directly reinvesting pri-
vate money in roadways, railroads
and other transportation facilities
throughout Florida - but it-will
also lay the foundation for pas-
senger rail systems in other Florida
regions desperate for multi-modal
transportation solutions.
Expanding commuter rail in
Florida is a great opportunity to
leverage federal funding, create
thousands of jobs and gain eco-
nomic benefits that accompany.
transportation improvements.
Actions by this coming legislative
session by the Florida Legislature
and by Gov. Crist will enable the
SunRail project to serve as a much-
needed stimulus to our state's
economy. Florida needs long-term
thinking and short-term action.
The time to act on commuter rail is
now.

Chamber of Commerce

A look at the governor's
proposed budget
This past Friday, Gov. Charlie Crist
unveiled his proposed state budget


for the 2009-2010 Fiscal Year. His
$66.5 billion state budget includes
$4.7 billion expected from the
American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act of 2009 recently signed
by President Barack Obama. I'd like
to take this opportunity to pres-
ent an overview and analysis of
the governor's proposed budget,
including key program areas afid
projects that affect Central Florida.
. First, it is important to note that
the governor's budget includes
several assumptions about finan-
cial allocations and decisions that
have yet to be confirmed. Without
the $4.7 billion in federal aid, the
governor's budget is about $61.8
billion, which would be $3 billion
less than current state spending.
Additionally, the governor's bud-
get includes the revenue for edu-
cation from a yet-to-be-ratified
compact with the Seminole Tribe
of Florida. His basis for support is
based on the guaranteed income
of $150 million for the 2009-2010
fiscal year alone and the creation of
about 45,000 new jobs. The com-
pact is currently waiting for the
Legislature's approval during the
upcoming session that will begin
next week.
Focusing on the budget itself,
Gov. Crist looks to allocate $25.2
billion to Health and Human Ser-
vices,.which includes Departments
of Elder Affairs, Health, Children
and Family Services, Persons with
Disabilities, and Veterans Affairs.
He also recommends $45 mil-
lion for cash assistance and food
stamps for families, as the last few.
months have seen a high increase
of family applying for such support.
Another $52 million would support
an estimated 46,000 children who
will enroll in the Florida KidCare
Program as families lose insurance
coverage due to lost jobs. ~
On the education side, Gov.
Crist would like to see $183 more
per student to bring up the aver- -
age to $7,044 per-student funding,
and support legislation that would
require school districts to spend a
minimum of 70 percent of operat-
ing funds directly on the students.
Gov. Crist supports legislation for


higher education that would raise
tuition by no more than 15 percent
per year, as he notes it is necessary
to have a well-educated work force
from world-class colleges and uni-
versities.
Turning to economic develop-
ment, Gov. Crist recommends allo-
cating $10.3 billion to transporta-
tion and economic development
and includes his strong support for
the SunRail here in Central Florida.
Noting that it will create more than
13,000 jobs and more than $1 bil-
lion over the next 30 years, he urg-
es the Legislature's support of this
economic development initiative
here in Central Florida.
The governor's budget does
include $558 million through 12
new fees. Some of the new fee hikes
include an increase in circuit court
filing fees, increased state park fees,
and increased driver's license and
vehicle registration fees. His budget
also includes trust fund "sweeping"
again, to the tune of $400.3 million.
While I applaud the governor for
his commitment and dedication
to the Sunshine State, one must
also be reminded that the stimulus
money from the Federal Govern-
ment is non-recurring, so it is not
prudent to rely on this money for
only the next two years, as they
will not exist after that. Addition-
ally, the Legislature will continue to
support a constitutionally mandat-
ed budget that will provide a strong
economic foundation during these
tumultuous times.
With the legislative session be-
ginning next Tuesday; i-will con-
tinue to represent your voices and
concerns in Tallahassee. Should
you have any questions or com-
ments about the governor's budget
or any other state issue, please do
riot hesitate to contact me in dis-
trict at 407-880-4414 or in Talla-
hassee at 850-488-2023. As always
it is a privilege and an honor to
represent you in the.Florida House
of Representatives.

David Strong
(Interview)
Louis: What's your
proudest accomplish-
ment as mayor in the past
three years?
David- I'm most proud
that we've maintained our
city services despite very
difficult budget consider-
ations. We cut over $2 mil-
lion in our city's expendi-
tures without a decline in
our quality of life. My goal
is to maintain our quality
of life at the least cost to
taxpayers. Fm most proud
of that.
L: As a former football
star, rate a City Hall term
against a football season.'
D: As a football player,


it's all you. As mayor, you've
got a whole city to answer
to.
L: Other mayoral high-
lights?
D: I see the elimination
of the Carlisle as a plus. We
now have in place a Com-
prehensive Plan to protect
our assets and our neigh-
borhoods. The Plan allows
for growth, in keeping with
the beauty and scope of
the city. The Plan will be
adopted soon, and sent to
Tallahassee.
L: Are we compromising
safety in favor of economy?
D: No. Fire and police
protection remain our No.
1 priority.
L: What's the prime
negative in living in Winter
Park?
D: As it is in all Orange
County, increasing crime'
- lots of which relates to
drugs - is a problem. The
criminals come mostly
from outside our city. We.
have a great Neighborhood
Watch, but citizens should
keep an eye on strangers.
"Traffic" is people's No. 1
subject whenever we take a
survey. The city has resisted
a widening of Aloma. A wid-
ened Aloma would only in-
crease east-west traffic flow.
The state wants to go to six
lanes, but we have success-
fully preserved the status
quo. The city has passed a
red-light-camera ordinance
that goes into effect this


summer.
L: Park Avenue's empty
stores, property taxes and
city cash reserves: How do
they concern you now?
D: They are ever on my
mind, but are not at this
time in crisis mode. During
my term we have increased
cash reserves by almost a
million dollars and will in-
crease this year by another
million. To be prepared for,
hurricanes, we also keep
a 15- to 20-million-dollar
cash position. The city is
trying to attract people to
Park Avenue. As you know,
Park Avenue through the
years has a way of trans-
forming itself. As mayor, my
aim is that visitors, coming
from all over the world, en-
joy environmental beauty,
good shop selection, and
safety.
L: What's our tax situa-
tion?"
D: Most people's taxes
have gone down. The city's
collection of funds has
gone down between 10 and
20 percent in the last three
years. We're going to have
challenging times ahead,
but by law taxes themselves
will stay minimal. We must
reduce expenses in the city
in order to maintain our
balanced budget. The city's
biggest job is to tax as little
as possible.
L: What's your feeling
about growth and develop-
ment?


D: I may have a reputa-
tion for being against them,
but in the past three years
some 20 projects have been
approved in the city and
have not been built only
because of the climate of
our economy. I'm very in-
terested in seeing growth
occur on the right scale, in
the right places. Condos
downtown are struggling.
Pricey condos are not as
affordable now. In time, I
think supply and demand.
will take care of it.
L: What's happening on
Fairbanks Avenue?
D: A recent Commission
meeting allocated funds to
install sewers on Fairbanks
to 1-4, to encourage quality
development in that area.
The powers-that-be at Rol-
lins are very in favor of this
redevelopment to present a
good image to parents and
students when they come
to visit. I believe it will take
years to accomplish this
transformation and private
enterprise will do the job.
Rollins College is a tre-
mendous asset to our com-
munity. As mayor, I have
increased my awareness of
the range of activities that
Rollins offers.
L: Where are we with
Commuter Rail?
D: The decision as to
whether we have Commut-
er Rail is not going to be
decided in Winter Park, but
in the state Legislature. We


have the right to try Com-
muter Rail five years, then
to decide whether to quit,
or go on. Lack of state funds
is now a major obstacle.
incidentally, I think Winter
Park's financial responsibil-
ity in this project is at this
time too great. If everything
goes perfectly, people could
be riding Commuter Rail in
late 2010 or in 2011.
L: The burying of cables
...?
D: ... is goingwell and
main lines should be com-
pleted by late this year
or early next. This whole
20-year project will bring
much improvement as to
"outages."
L: What are your hours
in City Hall?
D: The city manager -
and I work a lot together
on the nuts and bolts. I put
in some 25 to 30 hours per
week at City Hall, plus a
great many more hours on
ceremonial duties and my
presence at various impor-
tant meetings.
L: Mr. Mayor, years ago
I suggested a raise in pay
for the mayor and commis-
sioners ... any action yet?
D: We probably are go-
ing to consider that in a
Charter review... Commis-
sioner Anderson and I both
feel the same way about the
limited abilities of volun-
teers and the need for fair

compensation for
time commitment. I
would not, of course,
propose raises while I
am in office.
L: How do you feel
about "changing hors-
es in midstream?"
D: I agree with
Honest Abe! We're
in the middle of sig-
nificant issues that
require continuity. I
do believe in limiting
terms to two. I know
my opponent Mr.
Bradley only slightly.

He is a nice person,
and I assume, compe-
tent. I think he has a
little different empha-
sis on what's needed
for Winter Park than
I do. He certainly
does not have the
knowledge that I have
gleaned in three years
as mayor. I think he
is misinformed about
the realities of our
finances, and doesn't
have a grasp of some
things going on in the
city. I respect him for
making the commit-
ment to lead both his
big hospital and our
city.
L: The post office
situation ...?
D: It's still alive. -
We have $2 million
pledged by enthusias-
tic volunteers toward
a new downtown
$4-million P.O. project
which will include a
smaller P.O. on the old
site. My goal is to use
no taxpayer money


for this purpose.
L: If you could com-
plete only one project
before the end of your
second term, what
would it be?
D: I want to com-
plete them all! The
Community Cen-
ter, which is in final
design, is a high pri-
ority and will prob-
ably break ground
this September. The
cable-burying is very
important - maybe
the most important
priority for our city.
The. expansion of
our (state-rated No.
1) library is near and
dear to me, and will
take several years to
realize. It's a great
resource for the city,
and offers a wide
spectrum of activi-
ties including talks by
interesting speakers.
This city's employees
are very important to
me and we all under-
stand the nervousness
that employees every-
where are feeling.
L: Do you enjoy
being mayor?
D: Yes indeed! My
service has been very
gratifying and infor-
mative. I've learned
much about the arts
and other activities
that have broadened
my horizons. I'm a
Winter Parker through
and through!
(Ken Bradley,
Strong's opponent, was
offered a like interview
and declined.)
