CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER
Some Central Florida pet
stores are taking a "puppy-
friendly" pledge for the love
of man's best friend. Advo-
cating to stop the sale of
puppies from puppy mills
as part of a nationwide
campaign for the Humane
Society of the United States,
these stores are proclaim-
ing, "We love puppies, that's
why we don't sell them."
Instead of selling puppies
for profit, local pet retailers
have joined more than 200


stores nationwide in mak-
ing thd action to "adopt a
pet" their official stance on
the issue.
Kathleen Summers, man-
ager of the Stop Puppy Mills
Campaign for HSUS, said
the basic idea for the pledge
is to nationally celebrate
stores that are showing that
they can run a successful
business without using mill
puppies.
The campaign was initial-
ly launched last November
because of an HSUS lawsuit
against pet-store chain Pet-


land, the largest retailer
of mill puppies, Summers
said.
It was re-launched this
summer to encourage
consumers to show their
support for the campaign
by shopping for pet sup-
plies at stores not selling
puppies, but advocating
adoption.
"Sadly, thousands of
well-meaning consumers
unwittingly support pup-
py mills every year by pur-
chasing puppies from pet
stores, not knowing that

into the ring
for Orange

He said he planned to file
his campaign paperwork
Thursday, Oct. 1, joining for-

Ted Edwards in the race for
the District 5 seat. The cur-

Edwards, a partner with
a local law firm, served two
terms on the Orange County
Commission, from 1996 to

If Kinson's bid for the

Showdown on the gridiron


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Winter Park is gearing up
for one of its toughest bat-
tles on the gridiron this year
against Cypress Creek. The
Bears (3-1) were undefeat-
ed until last Friday, when Dr.
Phillips shut them out 35-0.
The two teams haven't
met since 20)04, when the
Bears beat the Wildcats
27-23. That was in Winter
Park's home stadium. This
Friday at 7:30 p.m., they'll be
in Cypress Creek.
Trinity Prep dropped its
third straight game Friday
night to Crescent City. The
Saints (1-3) have struggled
since winning their season
opener against Orlando Lu-
theran.
The 19-11 loss to Cres-
cent City had the tightest
margin of any Sairits loss
this year.
The Saints led the game
early. A field goal in the first
quarter propelled them to
a 3-0 lead, but two:unan-
swered touchdowns in the
second quarter upended
the Saints.
SA comeback effort in the
third quarter brought the
Saints within a field goal
of the Raiders, but the rally
stalled after a touchdown
and 2-point conversion,

down to put the game out of
reach.
The Saints may get a re-
prieve in their matchup at
the First Academy at 7 p.m.
Friday. The Royals are 0-3
on the season, coming off a
56-14 blowout loss to Mel-
bourne Central CathOlic.


Lake Howell (1-3)
stunned its own fans Friday
by winning a football game,
a feat the Silver Hawks
hadn't managed since Oct.
26, 2007, 17 games ago. The
win happened on the last
play of the game, as'a field
goal attempt in the final sec-
ond of the game turned into


a 1-yard pass from Miguel
Weed to Daniel McCord for
the win. Running back Kyle
Glaze was responsible for
three rushing touchdowns
in the game.
In the 34-28 victory the
Hawks allowed the highest
opposing score in a Hawk
victory since Sept. 7, 2007.


Knights fall short of miracle


ISAAC BABCOCK
,-BSERVER, STAFF

A near-miraculous come-
back in the final minute
of the game brought the
Knights within a touch-
down on Saturday, but they
couldn't find the final score
to bamboozle the East Caro-
lina Pirates.


The Knights fell 19-14, after
trailing 19-7 with just a min-
ute left on the game clock.
Up to that point the Knights
(2-2, 0-2) had watched
what once was a lead slowly
slip away from their fingers.
Against the Pirates (2-2, 1-0)
the Knights were desperate
to win so as to avoid falling
to 0-2 in the conference.
They scored early, with of-

fensive workhorse Brynn
Harvey rumbling into the
end zone ill the first quarter,
followed by a Nick Cattoi
kick to go up 7-0.
The Pirates had trouble
keeping pace with the
Knights through the first
quarter, but struck quickly
in the second, going up 10-
7. The Pirates would score
four times unanswered be-
fore the Knights finally be-
gan their comeback in the
closing moments of the
fourth quarter.
That was when UCF quarter-


back Brett Hodges launched
into a furious 80-yard drive
that took the team into the
end zone in only 77 sec-
onds.
On the ensuing kickoff the
Knights succeeded in recov-
ering an on-side kick that
gave them possession of the
ball with only 1:06 minutes
left.
That's when the Knights
luck ran out of the stadium,
leading to a false start pen-
alty on the first play of the
drive, and a 25-yard bomb
by Hodges that was inter-


cepted by the Pirates. The
Pirates would kneel out the
final minute of the game to
seal the victory.
At 3:30 p.m. Saturday the
Knights host Memphis (1-3,
0-1). The Knights are look-
ing for their first Confer-
ence USA win this season. If
the Knights lose another C-
USA game, they face a statis-
tically difficult challenge for
a championship bid. They're
the only team in the C-USA
with two conference losses.

Budget finalized in Winter Park


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF


Winter Park balanced its
budget for the 2010 fiscal
year, passing a 4.0923 prop-
erty tax rate in the process
Monday.
But the budget and mill-
age rate didn't pass before
a final plea from Commis-
sioner Karen Diebel to re-


duce the rate even more
than proposed, pointing to
fluctuating real estate val-
ues.
"I'd like to make what's
probably more than my
10th plea to reduce the
millage rate even more," she
said. "I do believe there's
room to lower it more."
Mayor Ken Bradley had
earlier in the meeting men-
tioned that taxes paid next


year would reduce, due to
the drop in property value
along with the change in
millage rate.
"This would represent in
a decrease in property tax-
es," he said.
After fighting for ways to
trim the budget to balance
it with a sharp drop-off in
property tax revenue, the
city settled on cutting parts
of its employee benefits


package, axing $260,000
from 401(a) and longevity
bonus contributions.
In the final meetings
of the budget process, the
Commission found a way
to remodel the Winter Park
Country Club's pro shop,
with an estimated cost of
$150,000.
"It's taken a long time
to get that done," Commis-
sioner Beth Dillaha said.


Commissioner Phil Ander-
son had worked to move
the building up on the pri-
ority list.
With the budget solidi-
fied, the Commission won't
have to revisit it until next
budget season, which cul-
minates Sept. 30, 2010.
"I'm glad it's finished,"
Dillaha said.


Puppies I Up to 4 million puppies sold from mills each year, group estimates


< continued from the front page

almost all pet store puppies
come from puppy mills,"
Summers said. "By adopting
pets or getting them from a
reputable breeder puts the
quality of life for their dogs
first; puppy mills will cease
to exist."
According to HSUS,
about one-third of the na-
tion's 9,000 independent
pet stores sell puppies. They
also estimate that 2 million


to 4 million puppy mill pup-
pies are sold each year in the
United States.
Marcia Sundberg, owner
of Pookie's Pet Nutrition &
Bow Wow Bakery in Winter
Park, said it wasn't a hard
decision to become a pup-
py-friendly store because
the adoption of animals is
something she strongly sup-
ports.
"You hear so many stories
about people getting busted
for the terrible treatment


of animals," she said. "It's a
tragedy that people are sell-
ing puppies commercially
and forcing dogs to breed
continuously for profit in
harsh conditions. There are
so many mutts and pure-
bred dogs from shelters
and reputable breeders that
need good homes."
Debra Csuy, owner of
The Pets Natural Choice
in Oveido, said becoming
part of the campaign wasn't
something she had to think


much about either. Having
adopted dogs herself, she
says she doesn't see a reason
to buy puppies and dogs
from people who don't care
about them. She said, "It's
unfair to the animals...There
are plenty of them sitting in
shelters that need homes."
Going on the notion that
all dogs are created equal,
Summers said, whether
you buy a pedigree puppy
or adopt one at a shelter,
you should stop and think


about the quality of life
you'd give your dog and
compare it to the quality of
life puppy mill owners give
their dogs.
Summers said to always
check local shelters and
consider adoption when
first looking for a pet.
"There are all types of
dogs at shelters that need
loving homes," she said.


Kinson I City unsure of Kinson's replacement if the he wins county seat


< continued from the front page
then be charged with ap-
pointing someone to serve
as mayor until the next
municipal election, March
2011, according to city
code and Orange County
Supervisor of Elections Bill
Cowles.
The city code is unclear
as to whether the Coun-
cil needs to remain at five
members or can be four,


Kinson said.
"We are asking questions
of the (city) attorney (Cliff
Shepard) to interpret what
those options are If we
make ari appointment to fill
Council to five or if the vice
mayor could run the meet-
ings for those 3 months."
If Kinson doesn't win
election, he'll finish his
term in Maitland, he said.
But he doesn't foresee that
he'll have unfinished busi-


ness if he does leave Mait-
land early.
"I held off in announcing
my bid because I wanted
to make sure the projects
in Maitland are moving
ahead," he said of the Mai-
tland Town Center, fire sta-
tion and city hall. "I have a
reasonable expectation of
those coming to conclusion
by next November."
Kinson's only opponent
so far, Edwards, held a cam-


paign kickoff party on Sept.
25 at Church Street Station
in downtown Orlando.
Among his host committee
were hotelier Harris Ros-
en, development attorney
Duke Woodson, and lobby-
ists Bertica Morris and John
McReynolds. Also, Kinson's
colleague, Maitland Coun-
cilman Phil Bonus, was on
the list of supporters.
The qualifying period for
the county elections isn't


until June 2010. Kinson said
he's going to have to raise
enough funds to compete
against his experienced op-
ponent.
"Not tens of thousands
but hundreds of thousands,"
he said. "That's going to be
the key. I'm in early enough
such that I can raise the
money necessary."


YMCA I Y official tries to calm expansion fears, cites about tight quarters


< continued from the front page

treated by the cramped park-
ing lot and lack of lockers
inside, forcing an expan-
sion.
"There is concern that
we're going to buy up all
the houses along Palmer
(Avenue) and put in park-
ing spaces," Oliver said.
"But we have members who
are frustrated. They drive
around the parking lot two
or three times and can't find
a space."
Commissioner Phil An-
derson said he'd visited the


Y and saw potential prob-
lems with women having
less space than men, due to
an overwhelming dispro-
portion of female members.
"There are like 10 wom-
en to every guy in there,"
Anderson said. "There did
seem to be a shortage of
women's lockers there, just
in that I was in the huge mi-
nority there."
Last week, the Y with-
drew its requests to add a
pool and a parking lot to
its facility on Lakemont Av-
enue, asking only for the
3,115-square-foot locker


room expansion which was
unanimously approved by
the Planning and Zoning
Commission unanimously
on Sept. 1.
A similar locker room
proposal hadbeen approved
by the City Commission in
1996, before the Y had the
funds to move forward with
the project. That 1996 de-
velopment agreement also
included a stipulation that
the Y would not expand
again. This was cited by the
Planning and Zoning Com-
mission when considering
the pool and parking lot re-


quest, but many members of
the board were concerned
that the facility would dis-
turb the surrounding resi-
dential area.
The community center's
board pulled the pool and
parking lot requests from
the proposal after the Plan-
ning and Zoning Commis-
sion rejected the pool with
a 4-1 vote and the parking
lot with a 5-0 vote.
Y spokeswoman Mary-
alicia Johnson said the re-
quests were pulled so the
organization could focus
on providing the additional


locker rooms.
"Members of the Winter
Park Community have told
us what they consider their
most urgent need, and we
are giving that need our fo-
cus," Johnson wrote in an e-
mail. "Our goal is to create a
more comfortable environ-
ment for women and fami-
lies so that they can con-
tinue to make health and
wellness a priority in their
lives."

Do fitness programs work?


MATT MORRISON
GUEST REPORTER


Get Active Orlando, the
city's community fitness
program, is getting a check-
up to see if the events it
hosts are actually affecting
citizens' long-term health.
A $1.3 million study being
conducted by the University
of Central Florida will inter-
view participants of Get Ac-
tive Orlando programs over
a two-year period to see if
they have integrated any
healthy activities, such as
walking or biking, into their
lifestyles. Get Active Orlan-
do works with the city and
private donors, from which
it receives its funding, to
put on fitness events for the
city's elderly, low-income
or minority citizens. The
program has existed since
2003.
"We see it as an opportu-
nity to learn," said Jill Leslie,
project coordinator for Get
Active Orlando.
According to Leslie, UCF
broached the study two
years ago, for while Get Ac-
tive Orlando has been a pop-
ular program, especially in


the city's depressed regions,
no data exists to show that
the activities being promot-
ed are being taken to heart
by citizens.
"I'd say there is some
trepidation that we may
find that our programs
aren't working as well as we
hoped," Leslie said.
"The worse that will hap-
pen is that we will find a
new desirable level."
Typically, Get Active Or-
lando's focus has been on
low-stress activities. The
UCF study will focus on the
"Senior Walking" and "Adult
Bike Giveaway" events. A
third, "Community Garden-
ing" will be examined but
not closely due to its low
level of activity, said Karen
Dennis, a UCF professor in
the College of Nursing in-
volved in the study.
As Get Active Orlando
aims to introduce sedentary
citizens to healthy living
practices, the study will ex-
amine whether participants
continue the activities they
were involved in rather
than weight loss or blood
pressure statistics.
Dennis called Get Active
Orlando a "very wonderful

will be involved. They will
be followed up with on a

would like to look beyond
that, but current funding is

The National Heart, Lung
and Blood Institute, part of
the National Institutes of
Health, provided funding
for the UCF study. Get Active
Orlando has also seen a re-
vitalization of its programs
from a $250,000 seed grant
through the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation.

Maitland company expands


I recently was honored to
speak at the announcement
of a Maitland-based
company expanding in
the midst of one of the
toughest recessions of all
time.
Digital Risk is a leading
next-generation portfolio
management solutions
provider to the $4.2 trillion
residential mortgage
industry. Digital Risk is
the only company in the
market that combines
predictive modeling
analytics with forensic
underwriting services. This


means that their services
provide an effective
solution that minimizes
credit risk and pinpoints
and prevents fraud for the
maximization of portfolio
returns.
During the tour of their
facilities, I noticed that
Digital Risk comes closest
to any company in the
country to providing a
nearly paperless office, with
the only paper seen in their
office being calendars and
photos at employees' desks.

Winter Park City Talk
BY RANDY KNIGHT
CITY MANAGER


City seeks public input
for charter revisions
The Winter Park Charter
Review Committee would
like Winter Park residents
to share their input on the
city's charter by attending
its upcoming committee
meeting at 6 p.m. on Thurs-
day, Oct. 1, at the Public
Safety Building located at
500 N. Virginia Ave. Go-
ing forward, the commit-
tee will meet at the same
location every Wednesday
in October at 6 p.m. This
will give the public many
opportunities to provide
input about changes to the
charter, prior to the com-
mittee making its recom-
mendations to the City
Commission.
The Charter Review
Committee was created by
the City Commission on
Sept. 14 with the sole pur-
pose to review language in
the city's existing charter.
A municipal charter is the
equivalent of a local consti-
tution. It governs the form
and powers of the city and
the general responsibili-
ties of the legislative and
administrative powers. It
addresses important topics
such as the city's corporate
limits, organization of city
government, terms of of-
fice, functions of elected
officials, election standards,
budget adoption and per-
sonnel management (city
administration).
The Charter Review
Committee will make its
recommendations to the
City Commission and the
City Commission would
consider those recom-
mendations to propose its
revisions in the form of an
ordinance. Upon passage
of the ordinance, the pro-
posed amendments would
be voted on by Winter Park
residents at the next gen-
eral election, scheduled for
March 9, 2010.

Economic Development
was pleased to have
partnered with the
Economic Development
Council, Enterprise Florida,
Orange County, and the city
of Maitland to secure this
project for Central Florida.
Lt. Gov. Jeff Kottkamp was
in town specifically to
recognize Digital Risk for
their expansion efforts in
Maitland.
"Today is an exciting day
for Florida's professional
and financial services
industry. Florida's business-
friendly climate continues
to appeal to growing,
thriving industries," said
Kottkamp. "I am confident
Digital Risk will not only
provide a crucial service
to Floridians but also offer
employment opportunities
to Central Florida's talented
workforce."
Maitland is proud that
Digital Risk selected
Maitland for their
corporate headquarters and
could not be more pleased


amendments made to vari-
ous sections of the charter
since its last overall adop-
tion by referendum on Nov.
8, 1983. Because it has been
over 20 years since the last
adoption, the Charter Re-
view Committee is seeking
the input of residents to
ensure any and all areas of
interest are addressed and
updated as needed.
If you are unable to at-
tend the Charter Review
Committee meetings, you
can share your input by e-
mailing CharterReview@
cityofwinterpark.org before
Wednesday, Oct. 21. Ad-
ditional questions or con-
cerns regarding the Winter
Park Charter Review Com-
mittee may be directed to

Phil Anderson's
CoffeeTalk
On Wednesday, Oct. 7, at
8:30 a.m. and 6 p.m., Com-
missioner Phil Anderson
will hold his CoffeeTalk at
the Winter Park Welcome
Center, located at 151 W.
Lyman Ave.
The city began its Cof-
feeTalk series in 2005 as a
way for the community to
talk with its city leaders in
a more informal and casual
environment. Because of its
popularity and success, just
this year, the city expanded
its CoffeeTalk series by of-
fering CoffeeTalk@Night,
held during the evening
hours.
This communications
program brings govern-
ment closer to its residents
and allows them to ask
questions, share com-
ments, and learn from their
elected officials and city
manager. If you have a latte
beans to grind or if you sim-
ply wanted to espresso your
thoughts, CoffeeTalk may
be the cup for you.
The final CoffeeTalk
of the series will be on
Wednesday, Nov. 4, with
Commissioner Beth Dilla-


that they have decided to
grow and expand in our
city. Maitland and our
economic development
partners helped protect
more than 260 jobs and
provided assistance in
helping Digital Risk grow to
more than 500 employees
over time! In addition to
this commitment, Digital
Risk has committed to at
least $1.2 million in capital
investment in equipment,
research and development
to help further spur our
economy.
Central Florida's extensive
talent pool provided the
impetus for Digital Risk to
decide to stay and expand
in Maitland.
"During our nationwide
search, we reviewed
markets that could meet
our current and future-
needs as a rapidly growing
firm," said Peter Kassabov,
chairman and CEO of
Digital Risk.
He went on to say how

nis Center, located at 1075
Azalea Lane, will be closed
beginning Thursday, Oct. 1,
through Friday, Oct. 31, for
improvements including
court resurfacing and inte-
rior and exterior building

During the renovations
there will be no staff at the
tennis center. Courts will
be available on a limited

to league play. The general
public can play on a first-
come, first-served basis;
however, players are also

ual play will be limited to 1
1/2 hours per use and les-

danger and uncertainty,
were fortunes could be
quickly made and more
easily lost.
Yet even among the hus-
tle and bustle of Fairbanks
Avenue to the genteel pride
of Park Avenue are rem-
nants of long-lost orange
groves, which in that fabled
once-upon-a-time attract-
ed rich Yankees to come
down here and build a little
town.
The Winter Park Land
Company has seen it all.
The real estate company lo-
cated at 122 S. Park Ave., in
the shell of an old theater
that dominated the street
in a forgotten age, has been
more instrumental in the
birthing of Winter Park
than its simple green aw-
ning exterior would imply.
There was a time when this
simple business, one of the
oldest in the state, essen-
tially owned the entire city.
Pitt Warner, a broker
with the company, knows
the history by heart.
"They've grown together
over the years, the city and
the Winter Park Land Com-
pany," he said.
Focusing on residential
properties, the major-
ity in resale, the company
has been doing business
.since 1904, when Samuel
Morse, whose granddaugh-
ter would go on to be the
wife of the president and
founder of Rollins College
and an avid art collector,


purchased it from Francis
Knowles.
The company recently
acquired Brown, Harris,
Stevens, a real estate com-
pany based out of New York
and one of the oldest there,
doing business since the
mid 1800s. While Brown,
Harris, Stevens focused
more on commercial real
estate, the two businesses
competed no more than a
block away from each other
on Park Avenue for about
25 years. The acquirement
came peaceably enough,
with agents transferring
over to Winter Park Land.
Leif Erikson, a broker
with Brown, Harris, Ste-
vens, said the move was due
to the uncertain economy.
"In these times, you have
to come up with a good
plan," he said.
But becoming a part
of a company with such
deep roots in the area has
provided a better standing
with the community.
"There's nothing like be-
ing a part of Winter Park,"
Erickson said, "and this
company absolutely repre-
sents what it's like to be in
Winter Park."
Founded in the late
1800s as Winter Park Com-
pany, the business was
owned by Oliver Chapman
and Loring Chase from
Massachusetts and New
Hampshire. They began
buying land in Central
Florida as a winter haven
for wealthy northerners.
When Chapman left, his
share passed to Francis
Bangs Knowles, who visited
the state in 1883, where
he met a Colonel Franklin

One company that helped shape Winter Park at the turn of the 1900s still stands after more than 100 years in business.


Fairbanks who told him of
the value of the developing
community. Fairbanks died
in 1890.
After a severe freeze dec-
imated the orange crop and
thus the value of the Winter
Park Company's property,
Charles Morse bought the
company from the Knowles


estate in 1904. He renamed
his new purchase the Win-
ter Park Land Company and
began his campaign to re-
build Winter Park. The ven-
ture proved successful as
the city grew by leaps and
bounds, with the opening
of Rollins College and an


influx of new residents.
Warner said the Winter
Park Company still abides
by the Morse standard of
business with a handshake.
"It's great to have the tra-
dition, the history, the con-
nection to the community,"
he said.

Festival-goers will
be able to bid on the
original artwork by
artist Isaac Knight.
Issac (Ike) became
a Highwaymen
and painter almost
inadvertently. He
initially got his start by
being a seller of Alfred
Hair and Al Black's
paintings. After being
mentored by Al Black,
his brother in law, he
began painting about
1968. In the early
days, Ike struggled
with self perfection.
Sometimes he would
be dissatisfied with
the finished work.
But by sure fate when


he would go out on
weekends these, "un-
perfected paintings",
seemed to be the first
paintings to sell. Isaac
is best known for his
scenery and landscape
paintings. The original
artwork, as well as
posters featuring the
chosen artwork, will be
available for sale at the
blue Rotary tent at the
Festival.

The Orange County Health
Department is reinforcing
educational messages to the
community on the risk factors
associated with infant mortality,
and educating women of
childbearing age on the benefits
of pre-conception planning, good
nutrition, and the benefits of taking
folic acid for a healthy baby.
"Taking folic acid at least two
months before conception and
throughout the first trimester is
essential for the health and well-
being of the developing baby,"said
Dr.-Kevin M. Sherin, director of the
Orange County Health Department.
Approximately 50 percent of
pregnancies are unplanned and'
it is essential that women of
childbearing age start taking folic
acid as a preplanning method for
unexpected pregnancies. Infant
mortality rates are higher among
black babies. Data shows that
blackbabiesaredisproportionately
affected twice as much as white
or Hispanic babies. To promote the
importance of taking folic acid, the
Orange County Health Department
is providing educational materials
on folic acid and a bottle of
daily vitamins containing 400
micrograms of folic acid to their
family planning patients. Learn
more about infant mortality and
the importance of taking folic
acid by visiting the Orange County
Health Department's website

Pigs, puppets and private
detectives have teamed up
to equip local elementary
students with bully preven-
tion techniques using hu-
mor, songs and secret hand-
shakes.
"For whatever reason,
children don't have the same
coping mechanisms; their
response to bullying appears
to be more severe," said
Tracey Conner, Founder and
President of MicheLee Pup-
pets. "Everything changed


after Columbine."
No longer considered
a phase kids will outgrow,
bullying is now defined by
law and 36 states have en-
acted anti-bully legislation
giving schools a mandate to
provide a safe environment
for students and teachers.
Florida passed the Jeffrey
Johnston Stand Up For All
Students Act in 2008 in re-
sponse to a Cape Coral stu-
dent who committed suicide
after being bullied for years.

"Our bullying programs
target 80 percent of kids
who are neither bullies nor
victims," said Conner. "We
empower the bystander be-
cause the bystander has the
power to stop it."
Conner said students
are encouraged to distract
the bully, use appropriate
language to assertively ad-
dress the bully, and find a


trusted adult immediately if
a weapon is present. Teach-
ers use activity guides as a
springboard for discussion.

of bullying it affects the


teacher's ability to teach all

LeFevre I Spinning yarns after a lifetime in Winter Park


< continued from last page

LeFevre: A lot of people
wanted me to, but I'm not
a book writer, I'll let some-
body else dothat. Every now
and then I'll put it down in
writing and give it to some-
one else and let them do
something with it. I'm just
going to keep looking into


this Tibbets' thing. Ive got-
ten in contact with his son,
and he's helping me out.

Observe Some people
may look at Winter Park as
a sleepy place, nice but no
history what do you say to
that?

LeFere: It may not have.


We haven'thad anybigmur-
ders or anything like that or
fires. This little town only
had about 2,500 people.
What really brought Winter
Park on was these million-
aires who used to stay at the
Alabama Hotel Why that
crowd came here, God only
knows.
A lot of people sent their


kids to Rollins (College).
And I guess they came in
and saw what the town
looked likeandthingswent
from there on. The biggest
thing in the town was Rol-
lins. It was always a money
crowd, back in those dayg
that went thereandweused
to joke that the only course
they took would be some-


thing like basket weaving,
because their parents were
so rich they didn't need a
job. Of course it may haw
changed some today.
It's ustalwaysbeen a nice
town, and that's all that you
can sayabout it.

On what ails America


"This is my death... and it
willprofit me to understand
it." Anne Sexton

I attended a party last
weekend with nine liberals
sitting around the dinner
table mostly chewing on
the issues. I asked if anyone
wanted extraordinary ef-
forts to prolong their lives
at life's end? Not one. Some-
one requested that I be
on-hand to ensure just that
does not occur. I'm already
committed to being several
of my friends' best death
buddy.
The sentiment about
not going gently into "that"
dark night is quintessen-
tially human and I admire
the notion. But at some
point, your number is up
and it's decision time. How
you die is important for any
number of reasons, not the
least of which is what your
death and how you die
- means to those who care
about you.

"And our hearts... like
muffled drums, are beat-
ingfuneral marches to the
grave." Henry Wadsworth
Longfellow

At about age 20 or so,
I determined what a raw
deal death is. Seriously, it
is. It's unfair. It doesn't dis-


criminate. Alas. How "fair"
is that? It is the only human
event where equality is a
given. And it's relentless.
Age 20 is when it crystal-
lized for me that I am not
special when it comes to
death. I am not charmed.
Blessed. Or exempt. Death
taps us all on the shoulder
and says, "So sorry, nothing
personal."
Yet, death remains to
many a genuinely frighten-
ing event. This is inexpli-
cable to me. I attribute fear
of dying to ignorance and
religion (synonymous?). If
you fear death, you've prob-
ably found life a challenge
as well. Religion promises
eternal life but deep down
in our DNA, we intuitively
know that's just pixie dust
sprinkled by charlatans and
goofs.
If we are lucky, we live
healthy into our '80s. I'm
personally shooting for
anywhere between 81 and
83. That leaves me about 21
years. Healthy is the opera-
tive word.
Death and dying are all
the rage at the moment
because former Alaska Gov.
Sarah Palin coined the ex-
pression "Death Panels" a
simplistic mischaracteriza-
tion of what health care
reform would include. I
try and imagine what that


means to those susceptible
to Sarah Palin's point of
view.
Let's create one sce-
nario. You're 95 pounds
overweight, a woman who
has smoked since she was
16 and you find yourself at
age 72 a wheezing diabetic
- a life reduced to handi-
capped parking and riding
one of those motorized gro-
cery store shopping carts
with oxygen tanks in tow.
It was particularly dif-
ficult to not watch your
favorite TV show "Jerry
Springer" when Sarah Palin
was on TV campaigning
for vice president but, hey,
you did. Skip Springer for
Palin. You're a patriot. And
now those liberal-commie-
fascist-Nazi-socialist Demo-
crats are going to put in
place "Death Panels" and
give "your" health care to
someone else! Is that the
fear?
Aside: If capitalism is
such a great model for
our health care system,
I've a couple of ideas: Let
the market speak when it
comes to organ transplants.
To the highest bidder. Let
the market dictate the
value of a heart or a liver.
Is that not capitalism at
its purest? And why not let
the market "collect" an or-
gan from a donor for a fair
price? If Juan Valdez down
in Columbia has a bad cof-
fee crop and is approached
for a kidney and wants to
sell it (kids to feed, don't-
cha see), isn't that market-
driven capitalism at its very
core?
Why not profit off the
organ market? Seriously.
Insurance companies profit
off every form of illness
and sorrow. Administrative
fees, don't-cha see. That is
America's For-Profit health


care system.
What specifically is
wrong with our health
system saying to me, "Mr.
Jepson, how do you want
to die? Given 'A' diagnosis
and given the odds of living
with 'A' diagnosis, to what
extent do you want the
medical establishment in-
tervening to, literally, keep
you breathing?"

"It is the duty of a doc-
tor to prolong life. It is not
his duty to prolong the act
of dying." Lord Thomas
Horder

And then you have all
the issues related to "quality
of life." If I had a diagnosis
of Alzheimer's disease, I'd
be determining quite quick-
ly my rate of decline and
at what juncture I would
take responsibility for
the orderly end to my life.
There are many scenarios
in life that are repugnant
to me, and being reduced
to healthy vegetable mat-
ter ranks right up there as
the most repulsive. I cannot
imagine leaving a "living"
shell of Chris Jepson for my
children to mourn. There
are times in life when death
is the far more honorable
choice.
No, Jepson, you're to-
tally missing the point on
"Death Panels." They'll say,
"We cannot afford such and
such treatment and then
I won't have access to the
medical care that I require."
Is that the issue in a nut-
shell? That you'll be denied
health care because of fi-
nancial considerations?
Ha! Too funny. That is
pretty much the system we
already have in place. The
only difference? It is the
insurance companies that
are running the "Death


Panels." Darth Vader for
Insurance Commissioner!
What's that? He's already in
charge!?!

"The ordinary course ofa
cure is carried on at the ex-
pense of life; they incise us,
they cauterize us, they am-
putate our limbs, they de-
prive us offood and blood.
One step further, and we are
completely cured." Michel
de Montaigne

Think of America's
health care system as a
patient on a gurney, on
life support. The IV drip of
dollars is running out and
we seem incapable and/or
unwilling to play doctor.
This is one of those "Physi-
cian heal thyself" scenarios
that is applicable to so
many segments of America,
health care being but the
most complex and costly.
The fact that we seem-
ingly cannot come together
as a people and conduct a
meaningful discussion on
what ails us is more trou-
bling, to me, than our de-
clining health care system.

"The history of man is a
graveyard ofgreat cultures
that came to catastrophic
ends because of their inca-
pacityforplanned, rational,
voluntary reaction to chal-
lenge." Erich Fromm

Letters to


Donate to expand Central Park
Something very exciting is happen-
ing in Winter Park! We, the citizens,
have been given the go ahead to
start raising funds, to expand Cen-
tral Park!
Wow! Do you realize, what a rare
opportunity, we have before us. I
doubtwhether any other city in
.the country, has this chance to add
green space to the center of their
city.
Whether you contribute $1 or $1
million, you are still helping to
leave a legacy for those who will
live here years from now. This is an
opportunity for all the community
to come together.
Please go to the Web site: www.ara-

about this exciting project. As you
can tell I am passionate about this
opportunity. I hope you will be too.

Maitland having a tea party
In 2004, Maitland officials revealed
a comprehensive plan for a new
city hall and public safety complex


that was to be the core of our city's
new Town Center. In a special ref-
erendum, voters put confidence in
their City Council to deliver what
they promised, and approved a tax
increase to pay for an $18.5 million
bond issue to finance the complex.
Now, some five years later, we see
these promises have been shattered
and broken as there are no viable
plans for a new city hall. The new
police station has been moved to
west of Interstate 4 at considerable
additional cost. This is contrary
to everything city officials told us
about the importance of having
one public safety complex.
Many have judged the plans for a
new fire station proposed by a de-
veloper as unattractive.
If the proposed fire station is an
example of the developer's design
perception of our Town Center, it is
a huge disappointment. We deserve
much better. Is this what happens
to a city that has had a longstand-
ing tradition of quality growth and
development because its Council
caters to developers' interests?
We have other significantproblems


Maitland has spent more than $30
million on the redevelopment of
our downtown. Can you believe
this huge expenditure is in addi-
tion to the $18.5 million approved
for the city hall and public safety
complex? To put this $30 million
into some perspective, this is about
1/3 of the assessed value of all
downtown property when the re-
development program started!
Think about it, this is an amazing
amount of money that exceeds
Maitland's total annual budget. But
what do we have to show for it?
Deteriorating empty buildings
and weed strewn vacant lots have
become a prominent part of our
downtown. Although the first ex-
citing plans for the development of
our downtown were introduced in
the 1997 Master Plan, only limited
progress has been made despite the
spending of so many of your tax
dollars. Unfortunately, as things
stand now, our downtown devel-
opment quagmire can be expected
to continue for years.
Yes! There is good news.
The good news is that we have the


opportunity and money in the
bank to build a new city hall and
fire station, now, on the city's own
property. With current building
costs well under costs just a few
years ago, we need to act now and
build what voters approved five
long years ago.
The City Council has involved itself
in one developer scheme after an-
other to the jeopardy of our down-
town development. The people
of Maitland can no longer let this
happen. It is time for the people to
hold our City Council accountable
for building our new city hall and
fire station without further delay.
Most cities would be delighted to
be in Maitland's position of owning
property to use in the development
of a new Town Center. Our new
Town Center can be the envy of
Central Florida with a new city hall
and fire station in a park like set-
ting that includes areas for leisure
and cultural activities. It is practical
and doable to develop the core of
our new Town Center that defines
what Maitland is all about. With a
beautiful city > turn to NEXT PAGE

Broke & unfixed

1. The U.S. Post Office was
founded in 1775 234
years ago. Now broke, the
massively subsidized P.O.
can't match privately-held
FedEx and UPS...
2. Now broke, Social Se-
curity started in 1935 74
years ago
3. Now broke, Fannie
Mae was started 71 years
ago.
4. Freddie Mac, now
broke, was established in
1970. Arm in arm, Fannie
and Freddie have escorted
the nations of our planet
into the biggest economic
miasma since the Great De-
pression.
5. Lyndon Johnson's
"War on Poverty" is now 45
years old. The bountiful U.S.
taxpayers have thrown $1
trillion annually at this de-
clared "war" without solv-
ing anything.
6. In 1965, Medicare and
Medicaid were founded,
and, in all the last 44 years,
have made little work as
hoped they are both flat
broke. (Bizarrely, the U.S.
government holds them
up as poster-children in all


Thursday, October 1,2009 Page 15


things to do with health
care.)
7. AMTRAK started in
1970, and has been run-
ning at a loss ever since.
After these 39 years,
AMTRAK will keep run-
ning as long as we keep
bailing it out.
8. Earlier in 2009 the
so-called "Stimulus Bill"
threw a $ 1 trillion hunk
of cash at our "national
problems." Obama's
Robin Hood stroke of
quasi-genius has greatly
increased federal govern-
ment jobs especially in
the Executive Branch -
and raised lots of salaries.
The "stimulus" has not yet
created a single private-
industry job, but has gen-
erated much speculation
as to where Obama will
spend the rest of his incred-
ible cache of taxpayers' dol-
lars.
To our great disadvan-
tage, President Barack
Obama has acted almost
miraculously in the past
nine months: He has man-
aged to increase our na-
tional debt projections 400
percent (approaching $10
trillion)! If Obama keeps
huffing and puffing on
time, he will give us a mam-
moth Christmas present,
i.e., a national debt beyond
anyone's foreseeable pos-
sibility of repayment.
9. Barack Obama's 2009
novelty surprise, "Cash
for Clunkers," went broke
within weeks. A taxpayer-
subsidized $4,500 bonanza
to new car buyers, tons
of paperwork and wait-
forever payment for car
dealers were the patent fea-
tures of Obama's "largesse."
Eighty percent of the new
cars purchased came from
outside the U.S. Obaina's
unsuccessful wild swing
was somehow played down
by the lefty media while
the rest of us were still
enjoying riding around in


our long paid-for buggies.
Dealers nationwide, buried
under the bureaucratic pa-
perwork demanded by the
government, have report-
edly not yet been paid all of
what was promised...
Now, Obama's proposed
health care bill will control
about a fifth of our econo-
my.
Past attempts at trust-
ing the government to run
things medical have ended
in catastrophe.
Ergo: Our good Ameri-
can common sense should
steer us away from letting
the government-fox futzz"
around in our fragile health
care henhouse.
What batting average
does the government have
in the myriad programs it
has tried to run?
*Thomas E. Woods' 2009
"Meltdown," spotlights:
The Founding Fathers as
the visionary heroes they
were, the real causes of the
Civil War and World War I,
and, in depth, the ravages
of statism, high taxes, and
the war against American
initiative.
*The wicked ongoing
"Communist plot to drive
me crazy" goes on and on,
and does such things as
hiding one of my shoes un-
der the bed where I can't
find it. Misplacement of my
dark glasses is an assault on
everything that made this
country great. These Com-
munists should have better
things to do than to make
it hard for me to remem-
ber the station that carries
Glenn Beck on my little
portable radio. Their hate-
ful motto should surely be
more comprehensive than,
"Today L.R, tomorrow the
whole world."
*It is we plain hon-
est Americans, who must
change things that have
been done to our country.
The good things are still
there, though many are


buried at this time under
an ash heap of villainous
lies, rewritten history, and
manifestly false prom-
ises. All of us must "wise
up," and eschew playing
the game with those who
would destroy us with their
camouflaged wily rhetoric.
The easiest way not to be
swayed by betrayers of the
truth is to keep the truth
ready and unassailable in
our minds and on the tips
of our tongues. Tell the
truth and you don't need a
good memory.
"In the first place, God
made idiots. That was for
practice. Then he made
politicians."-Mark Twain
Glenn Beck is a phe-
nomenon. His unyielding
energy astonishes me. He is
moved by a passion for the
good of this country, and
his language breathes the
flames of an Old Testament
prophet. He is a reincarna-
tion of Paul Revere, calling
us to action-to save our-
selves and the homeland
without which we are rude
and rudderless.
*People are living much
longer. To stop them from
living so long, should we
deny them medical care
when they get old? Doc-
tors are now overstressed.
Is the answer to put them
in government service and
regulate their lives? Doctors
don't want to be bureau-
crats. Will we now have less
and less people studying
medicine? In the end, will
a shrinking group of doc-
tors provide care for young
patients who haven't yet
grown old enough to need
a doctor? P.S.: What hap-
pens to doctors when they
get old?
Fredrick Douglas said
that he was careful not to
betray the truth in himself,
in order not to incur the
wrath of others.
*61 years ago, in 1948,
I sang on a nationwide


tour some 50 times the
role of Romeo, in Charles
Gounod's opera, Romeo
and Juiliet. My Juiliet on
most of those occasions
was the charming Ameri-
can soprano Jean Carlton.
I can never forget Jean
coming out on her palace
balcony and singing what
Sin English is, "Wherefore art
thou Romeo?" As Romeo, I
responded by climbing the
wall, and joining her on the
balcony to sing a wonderful
love duet. Recently I heard
the sad news that Jean had
died in California. I am
wary now when I recall
her, "Wherefore art thou
Romeo?" My plan is to hang
around here on the ground,
under all balconies, quite a
bit longer.
*"All the perplexities,
confusion and distress in
America arise, not from
defects in the Constitution,
not from want of honor
or virtue, so much as from
downright ignorance of the
nature of the coin, credit,
and circulation" John
Adams
*President Obama has
now had time to surround
himself with his "favorite
people," who, he told us
would illustrate the quality
of his Presidential agenda.
OK-we've taken a good
look at what our self-
anointed God-figure has
done to our Constitution,
our traditions, our schools
and our national defense.
In my opinion, Mr. Obama
is a national disaster and
his handiwork has just
begun. I must tell you that
I was hardly sanguine at
viewing the TV spectacle
of public school children
. dutifully chant-singing that
Their eyes have seen the
glory of Barack Obama-
all this political clap-trap
propaganda to the tune of
"The Battle Hymn of the
Republic."


LETTERS I Maitland needs a defining center


< continued from previous
complex as the core of a
new Town Center, it will at-
tract quality development
that is compatible with
Maitland's character.
Speak upforyour city
Do you wonder what the
heck is happening with
your downtown and how
in the world the city could
spend more than $30 mil-
lion? Do you question why
the City Council has not
met its promises to you? Do
you wonder why you don't
see what you voted for and .
the results of the increased
taxes you have been paying
for five years?
If you think no one in City
Hall is listening to you, then
join your friends and neigh-
bors at Maitland's Tea Party
at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 7
at the Maitland Civic Cen-
ter to make our combined
voices heard strong and
clear. Together, we can hold
the City Council account-


able to the Maitland people
for building our new fire
station and city hall with-
out further delay.
This is really a no brainer.
The city has the money,


property and concep-
tual plans to proceed with
building our new city hall
and fire station. Join the Tea
Party to help make it hap-
pen.

The art fesl

begins -

We can usually count on
the first of October to sig-
nal our local day-time high
registering a little lower
than 90 degrees. Fortunate-
ly, the heat relief is also the
signal for the Fall Festival
season to begin big time...
and choices abound!
"Art Under the Stars"
is the theme of this year's
Maitland Rotary Art Fes-
tival. It was just last year
that this annual festival
joined the gr6up of festivals
around the country offer-
ing night-time hours. With
live music and sparkling
lights, the festival stays
"open" until 10 p.m. Friday
and Saturday evening, en-
hancing the experience for
artists and art-lovers.
The Rotary Club has pro-
duced the Art Festival since
its inception in 1976. This
weekend Oct. 2, 3, and 4
- 150 artists will show (and
sell) their art with $20,000
in awards waiting to be pre-
sented. The Rotarians' "eth-
ical questions" have special
significance in the world
of fine ART. Rotarians ask,
"Is it the truth? Is it fair to
all concerned? Will it build
goodwill and better friend-
Ships? Will it be beneficial to
all concerned?"
And this season there is
a special reason to acquire
the Festival's poster art.
Isaac Knight, one of the
original "Florida Highway-
men" artists, is the poster
artist for 2009. The posters
will be on sale in the Ro-
tary booth, and Mr. Knight
will be there to sign his
poster for you. The art will
Sbe shown from 6-10 p.m.
Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. on
Saturday, and 10 a.m. to 5
p.m. Sunday at Lake Lily in
Maitland. Check www.mait-
landrotaryartfesival.com.
If your artistic tastes pre-
fer music, you may want to
attend the family-friendly
Winter Garden Heritage
Foundation's 4th Annual
MusicFest also set for this
weekend Oct. 2,3, and 4
in historic downtown Win-
ter Garden.
MusicFest is a free, 3-day,
outdoor music celebration,
showcasing music styles
from classical to zydeco,
bluegrass to jazz, and more.
With over 30 musical artists
performing over.19 hours
of music on three stages,
the festival also provides
the opportunity to see in-
side the spectacularly re-
stored Garden Theatre.
The kids can enjoy
KidzFest (family friendly
entertainment), and there
will also be shopping and


tival season

food at the famous Winter
Garden Farmer's Market.
As if that's not enough, the
Railroad Museum and the
Heritage Museum willboth
extend their hours during
MusicFest. For a complete
schedule of MusicFest per-
formances and activities,
visit www.wintergarden-
musicfest.com or call 407-
656-3244.
One week later, we have
another chance to view art
at the 36th Annual Winter
Park Autumn Art Festival
open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
on both Oct. 10-11. Held
in Winter Park's beautiful
Central Park, this festival is
the only one that features
all-Florida artists. The free
event annually plays host
to 150 artists who work in
a variety of mediums. Fea-
turing work by several out-
standing Orlando artists,
the event also promises live
entertainment, children's
art workshops, and food
tasting provided by Win-
ter Park's celebrated local
restaurants. Visit www.au-
tumnartfestival.com or call
407-644-8281.


At the Maitland
Art Center
For those who prefer
to view ART in quiet, air-
conditioned comfort, the
Maitland
Art Center will open
its fall season with a four-
woman show entitled "A
Confluence." The new ex-
hibit invites contemplation
as it features the artwork
and the interaction of the
lyrically talented artist-col-
leagues Brigan Gresh, Vicki
Jones, Dina Mack, and Anna
McCambridge.
"The qualities possessed
* by these artists in varying
measure include lyricism,
subtle and complex color
harmonies, and advanced
rendering skills," says cura-
tor Richard Colvin. All four
of these Central Florida art-
ists have exhibited nation-
ally.
The exhibit is open and
runs through Nov. 1. A "Gal-
lery Walk" with all four
artists will take place on
Sunday, Oct. 18 at 1 p.m.
For information call 407-
539-2181 or visit www.mai-
tlandartcenter.org

An orchestral tribute to
Benny Goodman
The Pops Concerts pre-
sented by the Orlando Phil-
harmonic always provide
unique musical pleasures.
That will certainly be the
case as the multi-talented


Principal Pops Conduc-
tor Andrew Lane leads the
Orlando Philharmonic in
a "Tribute to Benny Good-
man" on Saturday, Oct. 10.
Virtuoso clarinetist
Dave Bennett, described
as 'Benny Goodman re-
incarnated,' will join the
orchestra for two perfor-
mances at the Bob Carr
Performing Arts Centre.
Bennett, who brings to life
Benny Goodman's classic
sound, began playing at age
10 on a clarinet given to
him by his grandparents. By
17, Bennett was perform-
ing as a guest soloist with
The Count Basie Orchestra,
and now at age 25, with a
successful CD on the racks,
Bennett will join the Phil-
harmonic to perform clas-
sics including Moonglow,
I Got Rhythm, Stompin' at
the Savoy, and Sing Sing
Sing in a tuneful concert for
audiences of all ages. Phone
the box office at 407-770-
0071 or visit www.orlando-

"Cinderella" on Pointe
Considering how close
we live to her castle, our
children might believe that
Orlando is Cinderella's
hometown. And with the
Orlando Ballet present-
ing the "dancing" version
of that familiar story, little
girls will have even more
reasons to believe in magic.
As if dancing on pointe is
not magic enough, the lead
role in the performances
scheduled for Oct. 16, 17,


and 18 will be danced by
the sensational Katia Garza.
Ms. Garza recently celebrat-
ed her own special evening
when she was honored
with the 'Angel of Inde-
pendence Award' from the
Mexican Consulate (recog-
nizing cultural contribu-
tions by people of Mexican
descent).
Prince Charming will be
danced byJoey Gorak, who
once studied at the Orlando
Ballet School, and went on
to dance with American
Ballet Theatre in New York
City; and Arcadian Broad,
the talented young dancer
who appeared on America's
Got Talent this summer,
will dance a solo.
Choreographer Peter
Stark says, "I first created
'Cinderella' for a school
recital in 2002. When then
artistic director Fernando
Bujones, saw it he invited
me to expand the piece for
the professional company.
Fernando was my teacher
and mentor, and I created
the piece to make him hap-
py. That means it has a lot of
hard dancing and male bra-
vura elements. Returning
to the work five years later,
I see that the push from
Fernando brought out.the
best of my creativity. Andy
Warhol said everyone will
have 15 minutes of fame, I
would expand on that and
say everyone has one great
creative project in them -
'Cinderella' is mine."
The magic will take
place at the Bob Carr Per-
forming Arts Centre. Call

orlandoballet.org.

The return of ... 'CATS'
Continuing to live up to
its slogan "Now and Forev-
er," the musical "CATS" will
return to Orlando from Oc-
tober 20 to 25, with perfor-
mances at the Bob Carr. The
longest running musical on
Broadway ended its 18-year
run in 2000.
By now, you or someone
you love has seen this his-
tory-making musical by An-
drew Lloyd Webber, which
features singing, dancing
'cats' and won seven Tony
Awards (in 1983) including
Best Musical, Best Book of a
Musical, Best Lighting and
Best Costumes. 26 years
later, "CATS" is still Amer-
ica's most beloved family
musical, and this visit gives
the whole family one more
chance to experience "the
magic, the mystery, the
wonder of 'CATS.'"
Tickets can be purchased
at www.BroadwayAcros-
sAmerica.com/Orlando or
