Wildcats in



final four


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The sounds of electric ju-
bilation rocked the Winter
Park High School gymna-
sium Saturday night, as the
Wildcats' boys basketball
team stood on the verge of
the improbable, atop their
region as champions.
They had just vanquished
a Gainesville Buchholz team
that had by all degrees bare-
ly survived its passage to the
regional finals that night.
They'd beaten their last two
teams by a cumulative four
points on their way to that
moment.
Saturday night the Wild-
cats shocked the odds into
submission with the big-
gest regional championship
blowout this season. They
won 65-37 in both an offen-
sive and defensive master-
piece that saw them on to
the final four.
The Wildcats dominated
that game from the start,
with a scoring frenzy that
outpaced Buchholz heavily
and rarely let up. They burst
out to a 21-8 lead in the first
quarter, punctuated by an
Austin Rivers breakaway


dunk that sent the crowd to
its feet.
Despite missing a full
quarter's worth of play on
the court, Rivers still led his
team yet again in points,
with 22.
Rivers "wasn't even part
of the team in 2006 when
the Wildcats made their last
state championship appear-
ance. Now the Wildcats are
in the final four for the third
time in four years. None
of those appearances has
earned them a champion-
ship though, as strong teams
have consistently found a
way to stop the Cats.
And in that final four this
year they'll see their tough-

in the path to the champi-

cats only lost to one team
in the regular season. That

If the Wildcats win,

time since 2006. And they

Rescue for Park Ave. on the way


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF


A national retail expert
will be measuring Park Av-
enue's pulse for the next six
months.
The Winter Park Commu-
nity Redevelopment Agency
approved two economic
investment initiatives tar-
geting retailers on Feb. 23.
The first is the Park Avenue
Revitalization and Round-
table Series, wherein expert
Britt Beemer will conduct,
two studies to identify what
avenue merchants can do to
boost their customer base.
Beemer, founder of
America's Research Group,
will ask those who no lon-
ger shop on Park why it is
that they stopped.
"Until we know why they
left, we can't fix it," Beemer
said. "I talked to 10 people
in the last two weeks that
left and I have 10 different
answers."
He will discuss the find-


ings during six three-hour
round-table meetings with
merchants, city officials and
residents and will be paid
$55,000.
Fixes may include up-
dating city codes concern-
ing commercial properties,
Community Redevelop-
ment Agency Manager Sher-
ry Gutch said. The neigh-
boring Winter Park Village
shopping area has a 3 per-
cent vacancy rate while Park
Avenue is 9 t6 10 percent va-
cant.
"Sixteen years ago there
was no competition," Gutch
said. "Today there's com-
petition all over with these
town centers, and so I think
we really need to be looking
at where we stand in the fu-
ture."
The second initiative in-
volves qualifying for "his-
toric district" status on the

toric Places. The $30,000
initiative would encourage

ognition.
If businesses do poorly,
the city and its residents are
also affected. Seventy per-
cent of the funds designat-
ed for redevelopment and
community improvement


projects are collected from
commercial properties,
Gutch said.
Two initiatives joining -
the Florida Historic Preser-
vation Office's Main Street
Program and the University


of Central Florida's Tech-
nology Incubator were
postponed by the agency,
which is made up of the City
Commission and Orange
County representative Stan
Roberts.


Winter Park gets another $950K for commuter rail stop


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Nearly a million dollars are heading
Winter Park's direction to help fund,
its commuter rail station, thanks to
an appropriation wrangled by U.S.
Congressman John Mica.
City Manager Randy Knight re-
cently sent out a memo announcing
to city staff to expect more money,
thanks to an appropriations bill
that had been overdue.
The $950,000 in federal money is
part of a $26 million funding pack-
age that the Winter Park City Com-
mission had hoped for since Octo-
ber of last year.
That funding bill stalled due to
the election and some controver-
sial issues, Mica said.


But with the extra money head-
ing Winter Park's way, the city is one
step closer to converting its current
Amtrak rail station into a commut-
er rail station, which would link up
with the proposed 61-mile SunRail
system.
"I was actually pretty surprised
the [federal government] had given
them that much," Mica said of the
extra rail station funding. Mica had
expected a lower offer, but said the
funding was near what the city had
originally asked for.
Winter Park City Engineer Don
Marcotte said this funding would
be in addition to $3 million the city
already had secured to help bring
a commuter rail stop to its Central
Park.
The additional money was asked


for to help renovate the existing rail
station to' adapt it for commuter
rail use.
"Winter Park is anxious about
the cost of the stop," Mica said. "It's
an old location, and it's in a part of
the community that they want to
preserve."
That downtown location is key,
Mica said, due to the SunRail sys-
tem's potential impact on vehicle
traffic in the area. He cited a Uni-
versity of Central Florida survey of
Winter Park area commuters.
"They talked to thousands of
people, and about half said they'd
take commuter rail," Mica said.
"About 750 to 1,000 cars would have
been eliminated from the streets
and parking garages. If you can take
half the people who work in Winter


Park and let them leave their car at
home, it frees up a lot of the down-
town area for people who want to
come and shop."
Of the larger $26 million appro-
priation for the SunRail system,
more than $2 million would be used
to improve bus service to the train
stations.
Mica stressed that the money is
coming from a transportation ap-
propriations bill, not part of the
nearly $800 billion stimulus pack-
age signed by President Barack
Obama.
"This was a no-brainer for me,"
Mica said. "If you look at the posi-
tive impact on the community, it's
got some real benefit to the quality
of life."


WINTER PARK I Mayoral candidates voice their opinions on city's major issues


< continued from the front page

munity. This week, the Ob-
server's Isaac Babcock had.
a similar chat with Bradley.
Here's what he had to say:

Observer: Howdo you feel
about budget cuts and po-
tential wage freezes, includ-
ing Police and Fire Depart-
ment pay?

Bradley: I'mveryconcerned.
at the concept of freezing
salaries. That's the last op-
tion businesses look at be-
fore they go under. There's
a lot that could be done be-
fore we get to that point.
With Amendment One,
we knew it was coming,
we should have been ready
well ahead of time. I've nev-
er seen a city that doesn't
look at its finances at least
monthly. This shows a lack
of understanding for the
mechanics of what it takes
to make a $157 million
budget work. I work with


a more than $160 million
budget, and the hospital is
much nicer now than it was
when I started there.

Observer: Park Avenue has
seen some store closings
lately, and you have accused
the current City Commis-
sion of not being proactive
enough to help. What would
you do to help Park Avenue
merchants?

Bradley: It's a three-way
partnership between the
city, the merchants and the
landlords. We need to study
why people don't come to
the Avenue anymore. .For
one, we took away 86 conve-
nient parking spaces when
we did the west meadow in
Central Park. The city was
charged with finding new
parking spaces, and they
have not done that. Those
are examples of what the
city can do, but hasn't done.
And there are some is-
sues we don't need to put


so much emphasis on. We
need to take off the table
whether sidewalk dining is
a good thing for the city -
it's clearly a good thing for
the city.
I have not met anyone
who wants to see Park Av-
enue be overdeveloped, but
I've been accused of want-
ing that to happen. That's
an outright lie. But I think
having beautiful buildings
.that are empty is a shame.
Having a viable Park Avenue
is very important.
Park avenue obviously
has a bad cold, and it's going
toward pneumonia. There's
nothing that says we can't
make it better.

Observer: How do you feel
about conflicts of interest in
government?

Bradley: If there were a
conflict of interest with my-
self I would recuse myself
from discussing that issue.
David Strong is in numerous


partnerships that he has not
declared.
I think everybody needs
to understand that with the
type of leadership we have
in our city ... ethics reform
is critical. I've never, been on
a board that you don't write
those out conflicts of in-
terest. Our city commission-
ers need to be transparent.

Observer: How would you
improve the city if you were
. elected mayor?

Bradley: I have a mayoral
action plan. It's designed
to create consistency when
residents and businesses
deal with the city. When you


apply for a project, you're
going to know that at a cer-
tain date that you're going
to get this done. If you're
going to add onr to a home,
you're going to know what
this process is going to take.
We need to encourage in-
vestment in the city. Good
investment stopped in this
city long before the econo-
my got bad.
I also think the Commis-
sion doesn't spend enough
time looking at the num-
bers. I've never seen a city
commission that doesn't
look at its finances at least
once a month. We need to
be proactive, not reactive.

MAITLAND I Candidates share their vision for Maitland circa 2030


< continued from the front page

Here's what they had to say about
the issues facing the community:

Observer: Brossier Co. President
Bob Reese is charged with building
the Maitland Town Center, but so far
has been unable to secure financ-
ing for the five-block project., How
would it benefit the city to continue
the development agreement with
Reese?

Kinson: I've been in commercial
real estate for 15 years and I deal
with people in the industry on a
regular basis, and I recognize we are
dealing with a person that has the
ability to be able to see the project
through to the end ... the devel-
oper's agreement goes away if he
doesn't get the financing this time
- but that doesn't mean that he
goes away.
We all have to recognize that he
is the owner of the property and
we will still be sitting down with
him and trying to figure things out,
because one of the things we don't
want to have happen from a real es-
tate perspective is for him to parcel
out the property and sell it. If that
happens ... the pedestrian orienta-
tion of the project would go away
because all the buildings would face
17-92.

Fox: If he is able to bring the financ-
ing, but most of all stay within the
scope of our development plan
that the Maitland residents spent
months doing, then yes, we should
keep him. If he cannot find the fi-
nancing and/or he's not willing to
work with the citizens, we don't
need him. ... As far as him being a
property owner, absolutely the city
will work with anybody, but get the
financing and we'll talk.

Observer: What issue or project
do you think the city should have
handled differently during the last
three years?

Kinson: (The- revitalization of)
Maitland Center that's one thing
over the last three years that I wish


would have moved forward further
than we were able to move forward
with it ... Maitland Center (a 45-
building office cluster adjacent to
Interstate 4) has subsidized the city
of Maitland since mid-80s.
We're somewhat exposed be-
cause now it's an aging office sub-
market compared to Lake Mary
submarket in Heathrow ... as it ages
more and more tenants will go
elsewhere, vacancies will increase,
rental rates will decrease, so when
our friend the Orange County Prop-
erty Appraiser comes to Maitland
and looks at those properties, the
assessments will go down and there
will be resulting impacts in the tax
base

Fox: The biggest thing [Kinson]
should have done is to have had
the complex done have the fire;
police and the city hall. That seems
to have been the one thing a lot of
the constituents that I have spoken
with are really resentful about. ...
They were going to allow Brossier
to build it, but we have the money.
There was a referendum; the people
have spoken, and you just cannot
ignore the wishes of the people.

Observer: What initiatives do you
have in mind to help the business
community through these tough
economic times?

Kinson: First and foremost, we've
got to continue moving ahead with
the revitalized downtown. We look
at our downtown right now and
businesses are struggling and that's
not just because of the economy but
because there's not this critical mass
of businesses in our downtown. ...
We don't have enough traffic dur-
ing the key areas of the day when a
restaurant like.Shane's is normally
very busy to withstand it....
I think the Chamber of Com-
merce needs to be supported in
a big way. ... We need to focus on
enhancing relationships with our
partners in the local, state and na-
tional level. Other cities like Winter
Park, Orange County and Seminole
County. ...There are a lot of grants
that we can go after.


Fox: The very first thing I would
need to do, is get together with the
Chamber because that's the Cham-
. ber's main job. Of course, anything
that the Chamber would need, I
would be there to help support
them if they needed to entice peo-
ple, bring them around and show
them the city, but I wouldn't want
to step on anybody's toes....
There are certain entities that ex-
ist that I don't think we're tapping
into and one of them is the Cham-
ber. I would be behind them 100
percent and if at times we needed to
hold hands and take off running to
get where we need to go, Id be there
with them. The same thing goes for
the Civic Center. I think there seems
to be a little division there and
bridges are very important.

Observer: How do you want to see
Maitland in the year 2030?

Kinson: I see Maitland as being a
major hub in Central Florida just
simply because if you think for-
ward from a visionary perspective,
our entire downtown will be dif-
ferent. ... In 2030, have five-block
downtown core, which spans from.
just across the street from Village at
Lake Lily to the south all the way to
Cappy's, the closest the tracks come
to 17-92....
It will be a major community
withinOrlando... very visible, many
from throughout the area come to
downtown Maitland to dine and
just in general for the experience
and it's different than a Park Ave-
nue because we have a major north-
south road going right through us.
... Maitland Center will be the larg-
est suburban office submarket in
Central Florida.

Fox: I see Maitland, if we take care
of Maitland, having a resurrection.
Citizens are going to be our chil-
dren. If we take care of Maitland
and don't change it to the point
that our children do not recognize
it, it will be a little bit of nostalgia....
We will have our kids come here to
raise their kids ....
I'm pro-managed growth, stag-
nation is you just decay so we have


to grow. I'd like to see [downtown]
as what we are, a nice quaint com-
munity where there are sidewalks
and parks and cafes just things
that we can enjoy and safe. I think
we have to cherish what is ours. Ev-
erybody who moved to Maitland
moved to Maitland because they
were not looking for the hustle and
bustle of the city.

Observer: How are you better suit-
ed than your opponent in making
that vision a reality?

Kinson: Knowledge, experience
and relationships on the local and
national level. Knowing which way
to take any issue that comes up is
critical. One of the toughest things
is transition at the policy-setting
level.... I spent a year preparing my-
self just in the chance that I would
have run. It took me probably a
month and a half just to prepare for
running my first meeting.
Frankly, I don't see those things
happening with my opponent, and
I don't see that level of in-depth re-
search being done at the city level
with department heads, with even
residents. I just don't see that level
of research being done that I expe-
rienced firsthand three years ago.

Fox: That's an easy one: Mostly be-
cause I am listening to the people.
I know that my opponent has said
that he is listening but if he is listen-
ing why is it that we're still going
ahead or having put things on hold
for such a long time. And it isn't the
economy; the economy didn't hap-
pen until just about a year ago, it re-
ally started tanking.
If you listened to what the citi-
zens wanted, everybody has wanted
a city hall,' a fire and police depart-
ment and that's the backbone of
any community.... I keep going back
to some of the literature he's written
about his tenure in office and there
seems to be a lot of "I"s in there and
that's not how I envision it. I envi-
sion it as a "we," we are in this. The
only "I" is I am here for the people

them for another agency, such as
FDLE or DEA.
Meeting attendees Councilman
Phil Bonus, Renee Stein Charlan
and Flowers did not return repeat-
ed requests for comment.
Fox said she never felt, "intimi-
dated" but the Orlando Sentinel
used that term in its article's head-
line, possibly launching an ethics
investigation. "They asked me if I
felt intimidated or if any slander
had occurred," she said of her con-
versation with the FBI.
Attendees Chris Raleigh, Dr.


Mark Round and Planning and
Zoning Commission member Dale
McDonald said they had not been
contacted by any agency about the
meeting.
McDonald declined to comment
for this article but did say he was
"taken aback" when he heard ru-
mors that an investigation exists.
Raleigh and Round echoed his
reaction.
"I can't imagine an incident like
that at all would be an FBI issue,"
Raleigh said.
Round agreed, saying that no
federal laws especially Sunshine
laws were broken. "What was


discussed was what kind of knowl-
edge of the city it takes to run for
office there," he said. "I don't know
who's blowing smoke, and I don't
know why she feels the need to be-
labor this meeting."
Fox said she doesn't know who
initiated the complaint, but that
the news of the meeting angered a
lot of residents.
"I can't tellyouhowmanypeople
have e-mailed and called me to say
'I'm sorry they did that,'" Fox said.
She doesn't want it to harm any of
the attendees' reputations but said
the conversation was out of line.
Fox said another agency is inves-

tigating the meeting: the Orange-
Osceola State Attorney's Office. A
citizen who filed a complaint with
the Office urged her to call them
and give them a firsthand account,
which she did.
The State Attorney's Office was
unavailable for comment.
She said investigator Roger Floyd
told her if no Sunshine violations
were uncovered, the case would go
to the state Commission on Ethics.
"I'm not out to hurt anybody,"
she said, "and he said the worst case
would be a fine."

Ducks cross the checkered flag at
Winter Park's annual derby

















Lining up at the starting gate, rubber ducks gather by the hundreds
before the start of the first race of the day Saturday. Winter Park's
annual Duck Derby at Mead Gardens encompasses most of a day as-
competitors buy their floating toys to raise money for charity. Entrants
also won prizes, from gift certificates to a jar full of hundreds of can-
dies. Sponsors also got in on the action, decorating extra large ducks
for a matinee race before the last race of the day took to the water.

Anchorwoman recognized for charity work


WHITNEY HAMRICK
GUEST REPORTER

When Jackie Brockington walked
up to her desk, she saw an enve-
lope from the Channel 13 corpo-
rate office, and was prepared for the
worst.
"Was this good news or bad news
- with the economy the way it is?,"
she said she wondered.
It turned out to be one of the fa-
mous Winter Park resident's great-
est achievements.
She opened the envelope. "I got
really excited and said, 'Oh my-gosh,
I am one of nine people who are be-
ing considered for a Crystal House
Award.' I didn't know that the per-
son who nominated me was sitting
across from me."
Coworker and Emmy nominee
Scott Fais had secretly nominated
her. And upon -hearing the word
"nominated" from her response, he
quickly walked over to read the let-


ter and pointed out
the word "recipient."
"You're a winner,"
Fais said.
"I started crying.
It was just an honor,"
Brockington said.
"When you're recog- Brockington
nized by your peers,
because you do have
to be nominated and someone
thought enough of me to do that."
According to Sara Brady, vice
president of public affairs and com-
munity relations for Bright House
Networks, the Crystal House Award
recognizes employees of Bright
House for their service to their local
community, not as representatives
of Bright House but for their own
initiative to do good works toward
an issue or organization they care
about.
"We are a very active corporate
citizen as a company," Brady said.
"The Crystal House recognizes


someone like Jackie because she
did this on her own, something that
she cared about. From the perspec-
tive of within the company we are
very proud to have [recipients] as
Bright House employees. She's be-
ing recognized for her overall in-
volvement with the community in
a variety of different ways. Jackie
is an institution in Central Florida
and she's very well-respected."
Brockington has been involved
with the Beta Center for teen moms
and at-risk families, and Ten Thou-
sand Villages, a fair trade retailer
that provides, benefits and health
care to artisans around the world,
and she has organized a Making
Strides Against Breast Cancer walk
for a cure event as a breast cancer
survivor herself.
The award has been given to re-
cipients across the U.S. for the past
four years. This year's Crystal House
Awards Gala took place at the Day-
tona Beach Shores Resort, which


includes a two-night all-expenses-
paid trip. Along with a trophy, re-
cipients received a check for $2,000
and a donation of $3,000 to a char-
ity or charities of their choice.
'"What was most exciting was
winning the $3,000," Brockington
said. "And then to get $2,000 for my
personal use, that was a bonus."
Brockington chose the Beta Cen-
ter and the Leukemia and Lympho-
ma Society as the recipients of her
donation.
"The reason she won this award is
a combination of her commitment
to keep the community informed
and to do the work needed to help
the community thrive," said Robin
Smythe, vice president and general
manager of News 13.

charities Brockington supports,

Can your historic home help you financially?


Rather than dumping their
homes tdabe sold for pen-
nies on the dollar in this
already deflated market,
homeowners faced with
lowering property values
might consider another
alternative. Historically sig-
nificant homes, some even
as new as 50 years old, may,
offer financial benefits to
their owners.
Inclusion in the National
Register of Historic Places
offers property owners sev-
eral economic advantages.
National Register property-
owners receive a 20 percent
federal income tax credit
for a substantial rehabilita-
tion of an income-produc-
ing building as long as the
rehabilitated building is a
certified historic structure
that is subject to depre-
ciation. The rehabilitation


must be certified as meet-
ing standards established
by the National Park.Ser-
vice. Owner-occupied Na-
tional Register properties
- including single-family,
multi-unit dwellings, coop-
eratives, and condomini-
ums are also eligible for a
rehabilitation tax incentive
program.
Maitland's William H.
Waterhouse Residence,
built in 1884, was listed in
1983; the Maitland Art Cen-
ter, founded in 1938, was
named to the National Reg-
ister in 1982; and owners,
of several other Maitland
properties have expressed
interest in getting their
homes listed on the Regis-
ter.
There are currently more
than 40 Orange County
properties, many with


varied context and signifi-
cance, listed on the Regis-
ter. Among the more famil-
iar Orange County prop-
erties are the Eatonville
Historic District, Gotha's
Palm Cottage Gardens
also known as the Henry
Nehrling Estate, the Old
Orlando Railroad Depot,
-Winter Park's Annie Rus-
sell Theatre, Winter Gar-
den's Tinker Building, and
Wekiva's Twin Mounds Ar-
cheological District. Winter
Garden Downtown Histor-
ic District, Winter Garden
Residential District, and.
Apopka's Ryan and Com-
pany Lumber Yard Building
are listed; and Winter Park's
Casa Feliz recently received
National Register status.
Many private residences
throughout the county are
included on .the Register.
The National Register of
Historic Places is the offi-
cial list of properties recog-
nized for national, state or
local significance in Ameri-
can history, architecture,
archeology, engineering
and culture, and is main-
tained and expanded by
the National Park Service


on behalf of the Secretary
of the Interior. The list-
ing includes districts, sites,
buildings, structures and
objects that meet certain
criteria. Qualifying prop-
erties must be associated
with an important historic
context and still have cer-
tain features necessary to
convey their significance.
These necessary features in-
clude integrity of location,
design, setting, materials,
workmanship, feeling and
association. f
Register-eligible candi-
dates include significant
properties that are 50 years
old or older, but exceptions
are sometimes made to
the age rule for properties
of exceptional historical
significance that were built
later than 1959. The foun-
dations for the National
Register were laid by the
Historic Sites Act of 1935
and expanded by the Na-
tional Historic Preservation
Act of 1966.
Public tours of the Mai-
tland Historical Society's
William H. Waterhouse
Residence and Carpentry
Shop on Lake Lily Drive


are available Wednesday
through Sunday from noon
until 4 p.m. The home and
shop are furnished with pe-
riod items to allow visitors
to experience the historic
context that earned the
property its place on the
National Register of His-
toric Places. Birthday par-
ties, Hats, Teas and History
programs, Carpentry Crew
events, adult teas and many
other special programs and
group tours are available
throughout the week by ap-
pointment. Corporate out-
ings, team-building events
and wedding rentals are
also available.

house Residence and Car-
pentry Shop, contact the

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
city Charter are as follows
and will be put 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 adopted


ordinances.
Amending Section 2.04
of the city Charter so that
the term of office of com-
missioners or the mayor be-
gin with the first City Com-
mission meeting following
certification of the election
results.
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.
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 shall become effec-
tive immediately upon pas-
sage and adoption.

This past Saturday, I had the
honor of attending the in-
augural Chiefs on the Run
5K and Dommerich Dash.
This was a community event
organized by teachers and
volunteers, of Dommerich
Elementary School.
Dave Cocchiarella, of
Central Florida News 13
fame, presided over the
event. The morning was
incredibly exciting and
started with the singing of
"The Star-Spangled Banner"
by Paige Ungaro, Hannah
Hutchinson and Catherine
Morse, all fifth-graders at
Dommerich .Elementary.
They sang beautifully and
energized the capacity


crowd of about 400 partici-
pants. "The weather was
beautiful and the day was
filled with friends, fun and
fitness," said Susan Boucher,
organizer of the event.
Two races were planned
as a part of the event. The
5K signature event, Chiefs
on the Run 5K, which is ap-
proximately 3.1 miles, and
the Dommerich Dash, a
one-mile run. Not being a
runner myself, I opted for
the lesser one-mile dash, be-
lieving that I actually could
compete since most of the
runners were children.
The anticipation of the
races began as all runners
stretched. Once stretched,


they proceeded to the start-
ing line with breathless an-
ticipation of the competi-
tion that was about to be-
gin.
The first runners crossed
the finish line in less than 20
minutes, with fourth-grader
Alex Boucher being the first
Dommerich student to fin-
ish. Mrs. Reynolds was the
first teacher to complete the
feat! Once across the finish
line, runners consumed wa-
ter, Gatorade, PowerBars,
and anything else they could
get their hands on. .
Next up was the Dom-
merich Dash. At the starting
gate, I was surrounded by
kids half my size. It almost
seemed unfair as I contem-'
plated what I needed to do
to not show up any kids.
I did not have to worry
for long, because as the gun
sounded, every kid took off
like a shot and left me in the
dust right from the start.
I couldn't wait for the re-

costs for the event, some-
thing it has done in the past,
city spokeswoman Clarissa
Howard said.- But, that won't
happen next year.
"It's the last year we are
doing this because of bud-
get cuts and the economy,"
Howard said. On the city re-
storing the funding in future
years, she said, "Possibly.
We wouldn't want to rule it
out."
Another potential change
for next year is the day of the
event.
Currently, the event is not
held on the Irish holiday,
which falls on Tuesday, but
on Sunday afternoon after
church, in order to attract
families _with young chil-
dren, Shaw said. The com-
mittee has discussed with
the city moving the event to
Saturday.
"It would draw people
from the Winter Park Farm-
er's Market," he said. "We are
considering and evaluating
it right now."
What's certain is no mat-
ter how the event changes,
it's still going to be free to
Central Florida residents, he
said.
"In the past, we didn't
have sponsors; the commit-
tee members would donate
$15 or $20 and put the pa-
rade on," he said. "It's just
to give back to the commu-
nity."

Check out the Guinness-record-holding orchestra


Culture
worthy of your calendar


(^^vue


The Boston Pops at
the Bob Carr
"The program for these con-
certs will be made up large-
ly of light music of the best
class," said the Boston Sym-
phony on Saturday evening,
July 11, 1885. So a large and
fashionable crowd showed
up at the Boston Music Hall
for the first-ever Music Hall.'
Promenade Concert. This
first (very Germanic) con-
cert would eventually lead
to the creation of the Boston
Pops "America's Favorite
Orchestra." Best known for
its July 4 extravaganzas, the
orchestra's performances
hold several Guinness World
Records for the largest or-
chestra performances ever
(with over 400,000 people
in attendance).

Why you want to go: This
venerable and uniquely
American orchestra was
led for decades by Arthur
Fiedler and later by John


Williams (of movie-theme
fame). Following such re-
nown, Conductor Keith
Lockhart has been with the
Boston Pops since 1995.
In his time with the Pops,
Lockhart has made his name
by leading the Boston Pops
on 28 national tours and
breaking the world record
for largest orchestra petfor-
mance twice, once in 1998
and again in 2003.. He will
conduct a program called
"A Tribute to Oscar (the
movies) and Tony (Broad-
way)." Joining the Pops
are "Broadway's Golden
Couple," Marin Mazzie and
Jason Danieley. The sing-
ing duo will perform songs
from "The Sound of Music,"
"Kiss Me Kate" and "West
Side Story." Marin Mazzie
is a three-time Tony Award
nominee, while Jason.Dan-
ieley won a Theatre World
Award for his Broadway
debut in "Candide." He was
also featured in the Emmy-


nominated Carnegie Hall
concert of "South Pacific."
The Boston Pops will
perform at the Bob Carr on
March 8 at 3 p.m.
Tickets statt at $49, but
they are almost sold out,
so call immediately 407-
539-0245 or visit Festi-
valofOrchestras.org.

Orlando goes
'Legally Blonde'!
In 2001 there was a "chick-
flick" that featured Reese
Witherspoon wearing a lot
of pink clothing, carrying
a great dog, and showing
that "shopping" can be an
art form. The movie crossed
over and became a hit. Then,
in 2007, the movie became
a Broadway show "Legal-
ly Blonde the Musical." The
plot is simple, but.touching.
Sorority "star" Elle Woods is
dumped ,by her boyfriend
for someone more "serious."
Elle puts down her credit
cards, studies hard, and sets
out for Harvard Law (where
the boyfriend is studying).
Along the way, Elle manages
to exhibit her intelligence
while proving that being
true to yourself never goes
out of style.

Why you want to go: You
may want to go if you are a
member of the Elle Woods


fan club, which I-understand
really exists. For the rest of
us, it's good to know that in
its first year on Broadway,
"Legally Blonde the Musical"
earned seven Tony Award
nominations, 10 Drama
Desk Award Nominations,
and an Outer Critics Circle
Award.
Additional good news is
that Becky Gulsvig, who un-
derstudied the lead role in
the original Broadway cast,
is Elle Woods on the tour.
And just as importantly, as
on Broadway, Tony Award-
winner Jerry Mitchell is the
director and choreographer.
It's always good to have the
Broadway director heading
up the touring production
- we'll be seeing the show
as it was staged in the Big
Apple.
"Legally Blonde the Mu-
sical" will play-eight perfor-
mances at the Bob Carr from
March 10-15. Tickets start at
$38. To charge by phone call
1-800-982-2787.

Meet a
legendary artist ...
Over the past three months,
artist Harold Garde, a legend
of the American abstract ex-
pressionist movement, cel-
ebrated his 85th birthday,
had a work added to the
Metropolitan Museum in


New York City, had his work
premiered as the subject of
a major documentary film,
had his work celebrated in
a major exhibition at the
Museum of Florida Art, had
a catalog of his work pub-
lished by the Abram and
Ray Kaplan Foundation,
and will be in attendance
for the opening of his one-
man exhibit at Millenia Fine
Art Gallery on March 13.
Whew!

Why you want to go: This
artist is receiving much-de-
served attention, and you'll
be able to meet this charm-
ing and talented man at
the Millenia Fine Art Open-
ing scheduled for March 13
from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.
Museum of Florida Art
curator Jeannie Dowis said,
"Harold Garde is a painter's
painter. I think the thing
Harold would want you to
know about him as an art-
ist is that he considers his
paintings to be his side of an
ongoing conversation about
what it means to be human.
He'd like each of us to con-
sider our own humanity and
enter that discussion when
we view his works." And you
will find this "celebrated"
artist to be very approach-

able.
A contemporary of many

The sacred and profane past


My tendency when start-
ing from the beginning is
to start from the ideal. Why
not? Why not start from the
ideal? Of course, like any-
thing else associated with
humanity, the definition of
an ideal is subject to debate.
I become quite amused
by the association of capi-
talism with the idea of rep-
resentational democracy.
To suggest that the two are
not axiomatically joined
at the hip or that you can-
not have one without the
other is, well, historically
laughable. What we have is
a system of governance and
commerce that, for better
orworse, is hitched to the
wagon before us. Those,
who embrace the system as
is have what I consider "a
lack of imagination," but
that is grist for another col-
umn.
Conservatives always
- trot out the Founding Fa-
thers whenever debating
the "nature" of things, of
what is immutable, not sub-
ject to exigency, and what
is acceptablechange. I get
that, I do. I like certainty as
much as the next person.
And there are historical
"ideals" worth preserving,
worth protecting:
In 1780, just after our


Declaration of Indepen-
dence, there were approxi-
mately 2,780,000 Ameri-
cans. By 1810, just a few
years after the Louisiana
Purchase, our population
had swelled to 7,230,000.
Our documents of gover-
nance were drawn, were
created during a time when
America was agrarian and
our population was small.
America was a small, agrar-
ian nation in possession of
millions of square miles of
unoccupied land (of course,
they were occupied by
American Indians, but as we
know, historically speak-
ing, that didn't count for
much). You lived on a farm
all your life. You grew what
you ate and sold the rest (if
the markets supported that
model). Americans were of
the land and the land sup-
ported them.
Social programs were,
uh, more modest then.
Grandma, if she lived long
enough, lived in a back
room and shelled peas for
the evening's meal. That
crazy uncle who never fit in
either lived out in the barn
and was seldom seen or was
"encouraged" to head west
and start anew. Damaged.
babies either died upon
delivery or shortly thereaf-


ter, or limped through life
until finally "done-in" by
events or circumstances.
Welfare, such as it was, was
nonexistent. My all-time
favorite quote is, "The cow-
ards never started and the
weak died along the way."
It's a quote dealing with
America's pioneers. I find
it applicable in so many
assessments of humanity.
Even today. But I can be
rather hard-nosed.
I don't know the statis-
tics for homelessness in
America in 1800.1 am sure
there were drunks, repro-
bates and other societal.
misfits scurrying along the
edges of America's small
towns and villages, but un-
less you were totally "daft"
you were virtually on your
own in America. Either you
worked and pitched in, or
you died or moved on. And
as model for a function-
ing and operating society,
it worked. Go West Young
Man! And get the hell out of
town.
Let's jump ahead to 2010
America, which is now
closing in on 350 million
citizens. Only a few million
are associated with agricul-
ture and even those people
might actually starve if
push came to shove, so dis-
tant from the land even our
farmers have become. Most
of us live in the cities and
suburbs and are incapable
of sustaining ourselves as
compared with our 1800
ancestors. For the sake of
this discussion that is nei-
ther good nor bad, it simply
is.
The Bible says the poor
will always be with us.
So will all of the maimed
servicemen as a result of
America's many wars. So


too our nonfunctioning al-
coholic and drug-addicted
citizens. So too the men-
tally disabled. So too the
chronically lazy and shift-
less. So too the criminally
inclined. So too our impris-
oned populations. So too
our "Alzheimeric," aban-
doned and impoverished
elderly. So too our many
children virtually aban-
doned in state children
services agencies. So too
our chronic, mentally-chal-
lenged homeless. So too
"X" number of women who
produce baby after baby
after baby at "our" expense.
You fill in here your group
(X) that takes (uses) more
than they provide (net).
Three hundred fifty mil-
lion Americans. Let's pick
a percentage of that total
that represents the above
paragraph of Americans
and juxta-position what
America did with "those"
people in 1800 (Founding-
Father time) and what we
are prepared to do today,
200 years later. I won't even
include the growing legions
of unemployed. Perhaps
10 percent of Americans
will not or cannot sustain
themselves? Pick a per- .
centage. I pick 10 percent.
That's 35 million Ameri-
cans that we do what with?
That's five times the na-
tion's total population from
1810. That's all of Texas and
Florida today.
In 1810, in such circum-
stances, you died or you
lived in incredible squalor
and poverty and subsisted
on what you could hunt,
fish or scrape from the land.
Those were the options.
Our Founding Fathers did
not envision an America of
the 21st century, like the


one we have today.
But those are not viable
options today. Are they?
Ignoring the 10 percent is
not an option either, is it?
Particularly when there is a
gun readily available for ev-
ery American. Drive down
the interstate shall we? So
we ignore the 10 percent
at our peril. Let alone the
moral considerations. To
my conservative readers,
please send a letter to the
Observer and outline what
you would do with the non-
performing 10 percent of
America. Be specific. Over
what period of time? And if
you want, please tie it all to-
gether with your gibberish
of the original intent of our
Founding Fathers.
If we lived in an ideal
world, all our children
would grow up healthy,
loved, cherished and pro-
ductive human beings.
They would join an intellec-
tually stimulating, environ-
mentally sustainable cul-
ture of free people. But we
are well short of the ideal.
We don't have the options
or the philosophy to handle
our 21st-century problems
with 18th-century rhetoric.
What our Founding Fathers
achieved is undeniably
significant, a historic prec-
edent.
I believe our Founding
Fathers would be horrified
at how often we look back
(evoking the "sacred" past)
when ahead is where Amer-
ica's vision must be.

Letters to the dir r


The Sentinel should bear
witness to Winter Park politics
In response to Rick Frazee's letter
regarding the Sentinel's endorse-
ment of Ken Bradley and his dis-
trust of the news media: Rick sug-
gests that the editors ought to have
attended some of the Commission
meetings and gotten a better per-
spective of where the mayor is
coming from.
Well, I'll go one better and sug-
gest that they should have attended
the Winter Park Town Hall meeting
a few weeks ago and the following
two candidate debates afterwards.
The first thing they would have
learned is: One Winter Park is dead!
Yes, that's what one of its founding
members stood up to remind us of
and asked that people stop bring-
ing it up so as to avoid dredging up
issues that caused so much divisive-
ness throughout the city during the
last two to three years.
I'm sure the Sentinel editors
would have concurred and looked
forward to some good political dia-
logue between Mayor Strong and
his opponent Ken Bradley without
the rehashing of all that stuff about
the Carlisle and how One Winter


Park supported David Strong's po-
sition. More importantly, it meant
that neither candidate needed to
worry about being labeled pro-
development or anti-development,
which would have created the divi-
siveness thatlMr. Frazee accuses the
Sentinel of trying to resurrect.
So there I am at the mayoral
candidates forum at the University
Club and what is one of the first
questions asked? Yeah, you guessed
it: '"Would you have voted for
the Carlisle?" And if that weren't
enough, at the Chamber of Com-
merce candidate forum the follow-
ing week the same question was
posedSo you tell me, is One Win-
ter Park really dead? Is the mayor
trying to get elected on the same
platform he got elected on before
- The Carlisle? Is there a pro-devel-
opment versus anti-development
faction? All I know is that each
time the mayor was asked the Car-
lisle question he responded the
exact same way,"... it was a tough
decision but I'm proud of it."
So I guess we can all assume he's
also proud of:
Spending $4 million of city
reserves to make the developers

expenses by over $3.2 mill

grains and laying off staff.
P.S. I bet Mr. Frazee br

My farewell to war
(Fiction)
Jealousy and bitterness in
people are qualities that
can wipe out anything
affectionate I feel for them.
I am convinced these
traits can be inherited from
parents, maybe even one
quality from each parent.
Mary Ann and I were
both from Charleston but I
never met her until the last
year of World War II the
start of a second war that
has lasted most of my life.
The spring of '45 we
got married after a short
engagement, thinking we
had to grab our happiness
while we could. Up to then
we hadn't moved in the
same circles. She had been
a debutante. Her family had
some social position the


kind you could have those
days in Charleston without
having too much money.
I had been to the Citadel
and was a fighter pilot in
the Army Air Corps. I flew
a lot over Germany, from
English and French air-
fields. I saw plenty of bud-
dies go down. I bailed out
once over the Rhine. It took
me six nights to get to our
lines behind Saarbriicken.
In late summer, 1945, we
dropped the atom bomb.
World War II was over. I had
enough points to get out
then. I separated from the
service in October.
Before we met, Mary Ann
lived with her parents. Her
father was a colonel in the
Army Reserve. He instruct-
ed in OCS programs for
four years in two big uni-
versities. Mary Ann studied
art at both of them.
I saw only good in Mary
Ann when we met and,
in fact, until long after we
married. She was pretty,
and she had superior intel-
ligence. She had lots of in-
terests riding, paintings,
furniture, classical music,
poetry, houses, and, mainly,
social position.
She introduced me to
these things as though ev-
erybody was naturally'ec-
static about them. I wasn't!
She laughingly bemoaned
my "lack of humor." She
didn't accept it that my hu-
mor is low-key and dry -
unobtrusive.
After the war, we moved
twice while I got a footing
in the P.R. business. I've got


a college degree, but I've
never considered myself a
mental whiz. Mary Ann had
learned cultural things in
her upbringing. My parents
had little of that to give me.
When I'm with experts
in literature and history
and the arts, I'm conscious
that, if you scratch me deep,
you won't find much. So I'm
really not drawn to people
smarter or more talented
than I am. I clam up when I
get with people like that.
My parents were very
self-centered. My mother's
main concerns were her
good looks, and that the
maid keep our house super
neat to the point of never
looking lived in.
My family was never in
society. So not many people
ever saw my mother in the
settings in which she prob-
ably doted on being seen.
My father spent his life
adoring her and providing
for her. He was a gawky-
looking bird with the two-
dimensional fanaticism of
a good pitchman, which, in
fact, is what he was.
I've often been told I'm
a cold fish. That's not un-
fair, because, God knows, I
have never been able to be
a completely open person,
even with my wife and kids.
Mary Ann was so
damned determined to
control everything that
marriage was becoming
grim and exasperating. She
fiercely competed with
me. That was not my idea
of a marriage. I couldn't
even try to compete on her


terms. For example, she is a
voracious reader. I had no
time to match her book for
book.
She never stopped trying
to change me into someone
else, by forcing all her en-
thusiasms on me.
Most of the time in
Charleston, after we had
the house and kids, I was
in another war with my
wife. Twice I moved out
and lived with my secretary,
who was straightforward,
fun-loving, and liked what
I was all about. Helene was
"live and let live."
I realized then that I
needed not more woman,
but less. If it weren't for the
kids I would have divorced
Mary Ann. I could have
been damned happy with
Helene, my work and a few
undemanding friends.
Mary Ann became more
and more a zealous evange-
list determined to convert
me to everything she be-
lieved that I should be. -
She couldn't accept that
my still waters really don't
run deep. I like being let
alone, not being asked to
laugh because other people
think something's funny, or
. to pretend I'm wild about
things that bore me.
Mary Ann grew more
jealous and bitter toward
me. She often told me that
her father had been suspi- .
cious and jealous of his
beautiful wife.
Mary Ann's mother was
progressively bitter about
her life. She ranted that
none of her dreams had


Winter Park / Maitland Observer


come true. Her dreams
were right out of "Gone
With The Wind." No matter
what it was money, her
husband, her children -
she was never satisfied. She
seemed never to learn to
enjoy the "now."
She played Mary Ann
against her older brother
Randy, and vice versa. At 17,
Randy left home for college
at Stanford and never
came back. After the Army,
he became a writer and
lived in Europe and New
York. His books kept get-
ting published, a fact that
made Mary Ann proud and
jealous at the same time.
Randy tried to befriend
me, but he didn't get far. As
I said, I'm uncomfortable
around talented people.
When they talk about their
"art," I feel like they are
showing off at my expense.
I stayed married to Mary
Ann more than 30 years. My
kids married the way she-
had taught them, so they
needed nothing from me.
I left for good after Mary
Ann converted herself into
a granite monument of the
two qualities she disliked
most in her parents.
My second release from
combat duty came three
decades late. Maybe you
think peace is dull, pal. But
competition in marriage is
a war with no truce, or even
weekend leaves.
Why did I wait so long?
Inertia probably... what
can I tell you?

With sex comes risk


Advice and news to help seniors stay STD-free


When it comes to romance, many
older Americans feel young at
heart and carefree. However,
being older doesn't mean your
risks of sexually transmitted dis-
eases and HIV are lower.
Research suggests that bet-
ter health among older adults,
Internet dating and certain
medications have all contribut-
ed to people enjoying relation-
ships later in life.
In fact, a study in The New


England Journal of Medicine
found that 73 percent of those
aged 57 to 64 were sexually
active, as were 53 percent of
those 65 to 74, and 26 percent
of those 75 to 85.
As seniors continue to be inti-
mate well into their 80s, studies
show that a growing number of
older adults are being diagnosed
with STDs. The most common
are herpes and the human pap-
illoma virus (which can cause


genital warts and cervical can-
cer). Other STDs include gon-
orrhea, chlamydia, syphilis and
HIV, which causes AIDS.
Physicians find this news par-
ticularly worrisome because
some age-related changes make
older people more vulnerable to
STDs than younger adults. The

Choosing the right nursing home


About 3 million-Americans depend on nurs-
ing homes at some point during each year
to provide lifesaving care. How can you
best choose the nursing home that is right
for you or a loved one? Medicare's Nursing
Home Compare Web site is a place to start.
Nursing Home Compare at www.medi-
care.gov/NHCompare provides quality rat-
ings for each of the nation's 16,000 nursing
homes. Each facility is rated from a low of
one star to a high of five based on quality of
care measures.
Consulting with a panel of experts from
academia, patient advocacy and nursing
home provider groups, Centers for Medicare
& Medicaid Services, or CMS, developed the
rating system based on a nursing home's
performance in three critical areas:
-How a facility performed on its health


inspection surveys over time
-How the nursing home scored on a set of
quality measures
-What staffing levels the nursing home
maintains
A five-star designation means the facility
rates "much above average"; four stars indi-
cates "above average"; three means "about
average"; two is a "below average" rating,
with one star indicating that a facility rates
"much below average." The ratings, created
by CMS, are updated quarterly.

Making informed decisions
"Because conditions within a nursing
home can change, this system is not intend-
ed to be the only tool caregivers can use
in selecting the right nursing facility for a
loved one," said Kerry Weems, CMS acting

care.gov/ caregivers. The site has information about

nursing homes.

administrator.
Weems added that in addition to visiting
the site before selecting a facility, people
should:
-Consult with their physician
-Talk to the state's nursing home ombuds-
man
-Talk to the state's survey and certifica-
tion office
-Visit the nursing home

financial support," Ludin said.
"It takes a lot of money to put
on Happy Hour. We could use
more help from the families as
well."
For the most part, nurs-
ing homes typically cater to
Christian residents focusing on
Christian-based activities and
holidays such as Christmas,
Easter, St Patrick's Day and
Valentine's Day, creating a cul-
tural disconnect for Jewish resi-
dents, who miss being a part of
their community.

Sulkes called "Jewish Journey

out and meets with the eight
Jewish residents, and a non-

include fish, brisket and Matza

Ludin calls a Jewish flavor that
all the residents can enjoy.

New Web site helps seniors save money


Though members of the baby
boomer generation, who are
in or nearing retirement, are
probably among those most
affected during these chal-
lenging economic times,
there is some good news.
AARP has launched a pro-
gram to help consumers ages
50 or older get access to sav-
ings on everyday items such
as food, household supplies
and clothing, as well as elec-
tronics and entertainment.
The program, called the
Everyday Savings Center, fea-
tures hundreds of major mer-
chants, and is accessible at
www.everyday savingscenter.
com.
Members of AARP get on-
line discounts that can save
them hundreds of dollars
every year. Typical discounts
range from 3 to 60 percent
and might include 10 per-
cent off at Target.com, free
shipping at BestBuy.com and
up to 15 percent off Hewlett-
Packard products.
Fifty-plus consumers are


online in a major way, -and
they are very comfortable in
this environment, regularly
purchasing goods and servic-
es. According to the research
firm Focalyst, 82 percent of
boomers are surfing the In-
ternet, looking for informa-
tion, products, services and
discounts targeted just for
them and analysts expect
that number to grow even
further as the Internet-savvy
U.S. population continues to
age.
"It's clear that each year,
more and more older adults
shop online," said Howard
Byck, senior VP for AARP Ser-
vices. "The Everyday Savings
Center is a cost-effective, easy
and fast way to shop for items
that are essential to everyday
lives. We hope they will take
advantage of this unique of-
fering."
The online shopping expe-
rience is secure, with state-of-
the-art encryption features,
advanced security systems
and new products, making

Understanding the changing tax picture


As more baby boomers reach
retirement age, analysts say it
could pay to give some extra
thought to taxes.
Indeed, tax efficiency and
dividends will become im-
portant income streams for a
growing number of retirees.
And, according to a recent
.survey, investor interest in
tax management strategies -
which can help avoid the loss
of returns to taxes is on the
rise.
One key to protecting your
assets could be to work with
a financial advisor, since in-
vestors who do so are twice
as likely to invest in mutual
funds that are specifically
designed to minimize the ef-
fects of taxes. But it's also im-
portant to understand the tax
picture. This quick quiz from
Eaton Vance could help:

1. True or False? For the av-
erage taxable mutual fund
investor, about 2 percentage
points of return were surren-
dered to taxes each year over
the past decade.

True. Over the past 10 years,
taxable mutual fund investors
gave up between 1.3 and 2.2
percentage points of return
because of taxes.. .

2. T or F? The highest tax
rate on both qualified divi-
dends and long-term capital
gains today is 15 percent.

True. The Jobs and Growth
-Tax Relief Reconciliation Act
of 2003 reduced the tax rate


on qualified dividends and
long-term capital gains from
almost 39 percent to 15 per-
cent. This now gives investors
two incentives to better man-
age the tax consequences of
their investments.

3. T or F? Tax-managed
stock funds, municipal bond
funds and variable annuities
are examples of investments
best suited to be held outside
of a qualified retirement plan
such as an IRA or 401 (k).

True. The optimal use for
each of these tax-advantaged
investments is outside of a
qualified retirement plan. In-
vestors should generally- use
their qualified retirement
plans to shield investments
that would otherwise be fully
taxable. Investors who are un-
sure of how best to use quali-
fied plans should consult afti-
nancial advisor to help them
make the correct investment
decisions.

4. T or F? AMT stands for
"Alternative Minimum Tax."

True. The Alternative Mini-
mum Tax, orAMT, is calculat-
ed alongside ordinary income-
tax for all households. Under
the AMT, taxpayers must pay
whichever is higher, the AMT
usually 26percent to 28 per-
cent of income or their typi-
cal blended tax rate.
The AMT was originally ad-
opted in 1969 to ensure that
the wealthy would pay taxes.
But, because the AMT's exclu-


-An increasing number of retirees will be living on dividends in the coming years.


sion level is not inflation-in-
dexed and incomes have ris-
en, many middle-class Ameri-
can families are now subject
to this tax. Without additional
legislation, the AMT could af-
fect nearly half of households
earning between $75, 000 and
$100,000 by 2010.

5. T or. F? All municipal
bonds are "tax-free" and
therefore are not subject to
the Alternative Minimum
Tax.

False. Municipal bonds is-
sued by entities such as hous-
ing agencies, airports and in-
dustrial developers are sub-
ject to the AMT because their
use is considered outside of
-government purposes. These
bonds, which comprise about
10 to 12 percent of the overall
municipal bond market, are
popular with municipal bond
investors (including some mu-
tual funds) because they tend


to provide income (yield) that
is about 0.25 percent higher
than similarAMT-free bonds.
While this can provide a
good source of income for in-
vestors who are not subject to
the AMT, after-tax yield com-
parisons between these bonds
are not favorable for AMT-
paying investors. Because
AMT status may not be clear
until the end of a tax year, mu-
nicipal bond investors should
ensure that holdings are AMT-
free.

lations might affect your tax

walking training session at

Community, at 1620 Mayflower
Court in Winter Park on Friday,
March 6, led by Elyse Baclar, the
Mayflower's wellness coordina-
tor.
The newest exercise trend
among seniors Nordic walk-
ing, or "ski walking" is simply
walking with specially designed
poles. It became popular in
Europe a few years ago. Now,
some U.S. resorts there even
offer walking poles to their visi-

Residents at the Mayflower
were introduced to this new
exercise program about four
years ago, and to date, about 25
residents have purchased their
own poles. For the price of a pair
of Nordic walking poles which
._ __ranae from $60 to $150 you-
can be fully equipped for a sport

but your upper body as well.

Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson recently reminded
citizens that they could lose
television reception as a result
of the conversion of the broad-
cast industry from analog air-
waves to digital.
While the federal government
recently delayed the deadline for
the switch until June 12, some
television stations converted
their broadcasting format on Feb.
17, the original deadline.
Consumers with older TVs that
lack a digital tuner (sometimes
called a digital receiver) and rely
on "rabbit ears" or a rooftop
antenna will lose their signal.
Those with cable or satellite
hookups will not be affected.
To avoid interruption of ser-
vice, consumers can do one of
three things:
-Purchase a digital-to-analog
-converter box that plugs into
your existing television.
-Subscribe to a cable, satellite
or telecommunications. service
provider.
-Purchase a television set with
a built-in digital tuner.
For information on the digi-
tal television transition, visit

INTIMACY I SHARE STD TEST RESULTS


< continued from front page

Foundation for Health
in Aging offers seniors
the following advice to
stay safe when sexually
active.
-Know your part-
ner's background before
becoming intimate: Be
open and honest with
your partner. An impor-
tant topic to discuss is
sexual health status.
-Consider getting.
tested first: The best
way to protect'yourself
and your partner is to
get tested for HIV and
STDs and share test
results with each other.
STDs don't always cause
obvious symptoms, and
some of their symptoms
can be mistaken for age-
related health problems.
Partners should also dis-
close if they've inject-
ed illegal drugs, as HIV
can be spread by shared
hypodermic needles.
-Stay protected: Use
a condom and a lubri-


ro1 P "
cant every time you are
intimate until you are
in a monogamous rela-
tionship with someone
who has been tested for
STDs and has shared the
results of these tests with
you.
-Talk to your health
care provider: He or
she can offer additional
advice about protect-
ing yourself from STDs
and also recommend
treatments for common
sexual problems, such
as vaginal dryness and
erectile dysfunction.
