Knitting blankets for wounded veterans is Mayflower retirees' gift to lift soldiers' spirits while recovering in the hospital.


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Eleanor McKechnie holds a
red, white and blue knitted
blanket in her hands as she
sits at a ring of folding ta-
bles in an otherwise empty
room. A few days from now
this small comfort will be
in a soldier's hands in San
Diego, but for now she runs
a pale white hand across it
one last time, and remem-
bers.
Two of her husbands
joined the Army in the
second world war, return-
ing years later with grisly
stories from both sides of
the Atlantic. Her second


husband of eight years, Dr.
Francis McKechnie, worked
to keep men alive. Her first
husband of 54 years, Don-
ald Lewis, counted the
dead.
She remembers reading
stories on the front page,
of sacrifices thousands of
miles away brought back
to the kitchen table and
delivering the grim real-
ity of the cost of freedom.
Two months from her 90th
birthday now, McKechnie
has watched that sacrifi-
cial reverence wash away,
faded into tattered memo-
ry through six decades and
four wars.


In 1945 soldiers returned
from "over there" with he-
roes' welcomes, but many
of their stories had already
been told in the press. In
Vietnam McKechnie's
daughter Elisabeth served
in the Navy, as American
protesters sometimes at-
tacked soldiers themselves.
Now, she says, the nation's
interest is turning the other
way.
Staring out past green
curtains toward the gray
skies blowing by, she paus-
es for a few seconds.

boys are in the back of

The game of Frogger that
some Winter Park officials
said pedestrians had to en-
dure to cross the city's most
complicated intersection
may soon be no more, as
the city moves forward with
plans to realign where Fair-
banks Avenue meets Orange
and Pennsylvania avenues.
The project will cost more
than $1 million, City Manag-
er Randy Knight said.
The planned changes
would improve traffic flow
heading westbound on
Fairbanks, improve safety
for cars turning south onto
Orange, and keep cars and
pedestrians from being
trapped in the intersection
between lights, Public Works
Director Troy Attaway said.
"It's going to try to elimi-
nate people getting trapped
in the middle of the inter-
section, and it's a much safer
pedestrian crossing," Att-
away said. "It's not going to
be like Frogger."
Gone will be the con-
fusion of drivers heading
through the westbound
lanes on Fairbanks, a route
which momentarily pinch-
es down to one lane as it
crosses through the inter-
section before immediately
re-opening into two lanes.

City gets head start on public projects


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF
Maitland is clearing the way
for its city hall and fire sta-
tion projects, even before
the final vote is cast.
The City Council on
Monday unanimously voted
to have staff get started on
the process that will allow
the city to find a builder for
both public projects, days


before the vote was taken
on an amendment that
would reclaim the projects
from Town Center develop-
er Brossier Co.
The Community Redevel-
opment Agency was expect-
ed to approve the amend-
ment to the Town Center
development agreement on
Wednesday, Nov. 11, after
the Observer's press dead-
line. Look for the results


of Wednesday's meeting at
WPMObserver.com.
Dick Wells, Community
Development director, said
Nov. 9 that the design build
contracts for the fire station
and city hall could be ready
for the Nov. 23 meeting.
"This will get us off on a
head start, assuming things
go as predicted on Wednes-
day night," Wells said.
The fire station and city

hall projects were originally
part of the Maitland Town
Center, a mixed-use, four-
block project that Brossier
has been unable to finance.
The developer was to move
forward with the fire sta-
tion but a disagreement
between how and where to
house the fire department
in the interim caused the
project to stall.

Texas Longhorns trample Kr


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Flying high on the updraft of
a two-game winning streak,
the Knights came crashing
down Saturday in Austin,
Texas, as the Longhorns
decimated them 35-3.
If that 35-point score
seems familiar, it's because
the Longhorns scored the
same points in 2007 when
the Knights put up 32 to
nearly upset them in the
Bright House's football de-
but. But this time around
the Longhorns' pass defense


grounded the Knights' air
game.
For the first time this
season UCF (5-4, 3-2) was
held to less than 100 yards
in the air, with only 76 total
in the game. Many of those
came on their first and only
score of the game, when the
Knights took the lead early
in the second quarter with a
Nick Cattoi field goal.
That 3-point gap didn't
hold the Knights over for
long, as Texas (9-0) then
went on a 35-point scoring
spree to take the lead and
run away with it for the rest


of the game.
The tale of the game un-
raveled in the total offense
category, with Texas gaining
a massive 537 total while
holding the Knights to only
151.
That weak Knights offen-
sive performance, largely in
the air, came courtesy of QB
Rob Calabrese, who played
his first fill game this season.
He completed 10 of 19 pass-
es for 76 yards, mostly while
being chased by Longhorn
tackles that broke through
the Knights' line to sack Ca-
labrese six times.


The Knights would only
enter the red zone one time
in the game, converting on
the field goal. But where
they didn't convert were
third downs, going 2-for-12
in the game.
Most of the big yards
would come in the air for
the Longhorns, who used a
lightning-quick offense to
race downfield and score in
only a few plays. The Knights
actually held possession
of the ball for the majority
of the game, but watched
helplessly as the Longhorns
turned short possessions


lights

into rapid scores.
For the first time this sea-
son the Knights out-rushed
an opponent and lost the
game, as they gained 75
yards on the ground versus
67 by the Longhorns.
The Knights return home
this weekend to face one
of their toughest Confer-
ence USA opponents of the
season, Houston (8-1, 4-1).
That game kicks off at noon,
Saturday. The last time the
Knights played Houston in
2006 they lost 51-31.


Wildcats take on Wekiva on Friday


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Colonial was left breathless Friday
night, under the crush of a relent-
less Winter Park offense that just
wouldn't stop. The Wildcats won
easily 52-12 to clinch the class 6A
District 4 championship.
Sam Richardson proved nearly
flawless again as the Cats' QB, nail-
ing 13 of 16 passes for 165 yards to
secure the victory.
But the Wildcats (8-1,4-0) didn't
need many yards to grab so many
scores, as they used repeated on-
side kicks and recoveries to deci-
mate the Grenadiers' morale even


after a win was certain.
And when Colonial did score, the
kickoffs led to almost immediate
revenge by the Wildcats. The Cats
took full advantage of a weak Co-
lonial special teams squad, earning
enough yardage for a win on kick-
offs and punting plays alone.
On one such kickoff, returner
Zee Ware caught the ball between
his numbers and raced 75 yards di-
rectly past 11 chasing Grenadiers
and into the end zone.
At one point in the third quarter
after the Wildcats had already suc-
cessfully converted an on-side kick
that glanced off a Grenadier's leg,
defensive back Keron Rouse inter-
cepted a pass and turned it into a


50-yard touchdown return.
The Wildcats have another
chance at long yardage this Friday
against Wekiva (2-7, 2-4). The Mus-
tangs are coming off a 28-24 heart-
breaker loss to Booker last week.
The Wildcats will travel for their
7:30 p.m. kickoff.
Trinity Prep extended its losing
streak to three games with a 45-27
loss to Holy Trinity Episcopal. For
the Saints (3-7, 2-4), the loss closed
out their season. That puts them
solidly in fourth place in Class 1A
District 4, well out of contention
for the postseason.

BROSSIER I City will have say in plans


< continued from the front page

On Oct. 26, the CRA City Council
plus a county-appointed member -
voted unanimously to draft an amend-
ment to the agreement that would al-
low the city to reclaim its public proj-
ects and put them out to public bid.
There are existing, but incomplete
plans for the fire station, ones Wells
said the city's architects can use. The
process for city hall will start from
scratch.
Council and the public will have
input on the design of both buildings,
said John Cunningham of ACi, the
city's architectural firm.


"This gives you the control you're
worried about," Cunningham said.
"If you just send drawings out, you're
handing over the keys to the city in
terms of quality or input."
Councilman Phil Bonus said the city
had not been in control before under
the Brossier agreement. "It's time for
people to have a say so they can take
ownership and pride in the final prod-
uct," he said.
Councilwoman Bev Reponen
agreed.
"It sounds like now we have some
direction and guidance, and I am all
for that," she said. "Show us how to get
started and keep moving."


STREET I Road work could begin in March


< continued from front page

center concrete divide where Fair-
banks curves left to head south onto
Orange will move slightly further left,
giving the two turn lanes more room,
and helping clear the westbound lanes
through Fairbanks. That should im-
prove traffic flow and safety, Knight
said.
"It won't back up through the lane
and over the railroad track as easily,"
Knight said.
What won't change is Pennsylvania
Avenue's access to the intersection,
which city staff had debated eliminat-
ing to simplify the intersection. Due
to concerns over fire department re-
sponse times and access to Fiddler's


Green restaurant, the street's access to
the intersection will remain as is.
Power lines and traffic signals will
bear the brunt of the visual changes
to the intersection, as power lines are
routed underground and traffic sig-
nals, currently suspended by wires, will
be mounted on mast arms.
Those traffic signals will also be
moved to improve their visibility to
cars in the intersection, which some-
times become trapped when drivers
can't see the signals after they've en-
tered the intersection.
The project could start as early as
March, though the city is still waiting
for Florida Department of Transporta-
tion approval.

What are we doing for our

A box on the table in

full with colorful striped
cotton and wool, destined
westbound for a wounded
soldier's hospital bed and
adding a bit of comfort dur-
ing a tortured recovery from
the trauma of war. The 200
blankets the group has sent
so far act as a bit of a thank
you, she said.
"We just want them to
know that we do care."
Every now and then a
thank you note takes the
3,000-mile trip back to Ag-


nes Prendergast, who's knit-
ted nine blankets so far.
"Agnes told me a story of
a soldier so badly burned
that he couldn't sit up and
had to lay on his stomach,"
McKechnie said. "One of our
blankets covered him."
Then the spritely lithe
woman with a well-coiffed
puff of white hair cracks a
small smile.
"When we put these on
their bed, it makes it their
bed," she said.
Come tomorrow this
room will fill with clicks

cial hook-and loop clothing
as a team of a dozen read-
ies for a fond farewell. It's
almost delivery day, with


one more batch of knitted,
crocheted and hand-sewn
blankets ready for the road.
Those days, when May-
flower Retirement Com-
munity employees and
residents descend upon the
activity room, are like fam-
ily gatherings, she says. As
McKechnie folds a blanket
Tuesday morning, a friend
stops by to drop off anoth-
er, exchanging a few kind
words before shuffling off
down the hallway.
Tomorrow it'll be more
than small talk, as the la-
dies pick up their knitting
needles, spin yarn and lend
wistful deference to free-
dom born of sacrifice.
"The people who work
here and the people who
live here we're all work-


ing together for our boys," do it for thank you. We do it
McKechnie said. "We don't for love."

1955; and Emory University
School of Law, class of 1958.
In 2002 Emory University
School of Law honored
Murrah by selecting him to
be a recipient of its Distin-
guished Alumni Awards.
In 1962 Murrah estab-
lished his law practice here
in Winter Park. Murrah,
Doyle and Wigle, P.A. is still
serving the greater Winter
Park community. Murrah is
a distinguished practitioner
of estate-planning and el-
der law.
The Murrah family's dedi-
cation and service to Winter
Park is legion. He has served
as a national chancellor


and national alumni direc-
tor of the Alpha Tau Omega
Fraternity; a member of its
Foundations' Board of Gov-
ernors; the first president of
Orange County's school vol-
unteer program, Additions;
chairman of the Cornell
Fine Arts Museum Board of
Visitors; commissioner, City
of Winter Park; president of
the Winter Park Chamber of
Commerce; board member

Hospice of Central Florida
Foundation); Communi-
ty Foundation of Central
Florida; the Orlando Phil-
harmonic Orchestra; Mary
Lee DePugh Nursing Center;
and member of the admin-
istrative board of the First
United Methodist Church.


Murrah was married on
July 19, 1958, to the late
Rachel D. Murrah, a much-
respected Winter Park City
Commissioner, serving from
1989-2000. He has two
sons, Kenneth F Murrah Jr.,
the late Bert D. Murrah and
three grandsons. He is now
married to Ann McMillan
Hicks.
In 1986 Kenneth and Ra-
chel were the leaders and or-
ganizers of CIVIC (Citizens
Investing in the Commu-
nity), which was the name
given to a group that led the
effort to get the community
involved in "furnishing" the
Winter Park Civic Center.
On Dec. 12, 2001 the Winter
Park Civic Center was dedi-
cated as the Rachel D. Mur-


rah Civic Center.
In 1996 Murrah was the
first person to be honored
with the Winter Park Pub-
lic Library's Evaline Lamson
Meritorious Service Award.
He was instrumental in
helping secure state grants
to finance the building of
the library's third floor addi-
tion. The award is named for
one of the library's found-
ers. In 1885 Evaline Lamson
housed the first library in
her home at the southwest
corner of Swoope and Inter-
lachen Avenues.

Connecting to the classroom


Throughout the past four
years, my commitment
has been to see to it that
our city was significantly
involved in the classroom.
Our police, fire and public
works departments have all
been involved in helping
our Maitland students
to better understand the
matters of public safety and
public works. The following
are just a few examples of
how the city of Maitland
is 'Connecting to the
Classroom.'

Maitland Middle School
tours the water plant
In October, students from
Maitland Middle School
met with Maitland's water


supervisor, Greg Amazi, his
staff and Maitland Sgt. Pete
Stephens to tour the inner-
workings of Maitland's
water department. Students
learned in detail how water
is pumped from the aquifer,
purified and stored, and
then delivered to residents
and businesses in the area.
Discussion also included
chlorination, fluoride,
permitting and licensing,
home wells regulation
and other information to
correspond with Maitland
Middle School curriculum.

Maitland Police continue
D.A.R.E. program
Maitland's D.A.R.E.
(Drug Abuse Resistance


Education) program is
another way that our city
employees reach out to our
community to work with
local schools.
Since the beginning of
this school year, Officer
Allison Diller has spent
time visiting with students
throughout Maitland.
She's worked with them to
understand what gateway
drugs are and how to
resist peer temptation to
participate. The focuses of
the lessons were marijuana,
tobacco, alcohol and
inhalants. Throughout the
10-week program, children
in our community have
learned how to recognize
these drugs and learned
different ways to avoid
situations where drugs may
occur.
Officer Diller encourages
students to role play and
act out different scenarios
where they think they
might encounter certain
drugs. She talked through
situations with the kids and
answered questions they
may have otherwise been
embarrassed to ask. She
encouraged them to take
those lessons with them


into middle school and use
them in other situations
where they are pressured to
do something they're not
comfortable with.

Maitland FD works with
students for prevention
Maitland's fire/rescue
teams have recently
worked directly with Lake
Sybelia Elementary and
Dommerich Elementary
schools to educate
and better prepare our
children (and teachers) for
emergencies.
Our fire department has
worked with elementary
school kids for many years
and the kids look forward
to the experience with
the bright fire trucks, the
blaring sirens, the cool
equipment and ladders,
and especially the learning
that's involved!
My heartfelt thanks go
out to our entire Maitland
team for their dedication
to our community and
for their efforts to better
communicate and connect
with the future leaders of
Maitland!

Don't miss the following


upcoming celebrations in
Maitland:

Maitland business a famil

The Parker family stands surrounded by 75 years of history at their lumber and hardware store in Maitland. The business began five generations ago when the growing suburb was still a small town.


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
The whole town of Mait-
land used to set its watch
by Parker Lumber's 7 a.m.
and 4:30 p.m. work whistles.
The six Parker kids did too,
though it was for a different
reason.
"When the 4:30 whistle
blew, we all raced up to get
the biggest vehicle. I was
slower than the boys so I
never got the biggest one,"
said Frances Parker More-
dock.
Since they could reach
the pedals and see over the
steering wheel, the Parker

kids got to gas up their fam-
ily's work vehicles and drive
them to their designated
parking space at every day's
end. The most exciting part
of the day, Moredock said.
Of course that was a long
time ago. That third gen-
eration of Parkers has now
grown past working age
and the fifth generation is
running Parker Lumber, a
Maitland family business
that celebrated 75 years of
service on Nov. 6.
Things have changed
since Moredock spent her
childhood days jumping
from one tall pile of lumber


to the next for fun. Then it
was exciting to count 100
cars chugging by on nar-
row U.S. Highway 17-92 on
a Sunday afternoon. Cars
rarely traveled by night
then. Now hundreds whiz
by an hour.
Moredock remembers
locking arms with her sib-
lings and mother while they
sang army marching songs
and skipped down 17-92.
Standing underneath a big
white festival tent Friday af-
ternoon, she and her sister,
Josephine Parker Simons,
paused the tale to sing one
of the songs aloud.


This sense of together-
ness is part of what the Park-
ers say has kept the business
going for five generations.
"With the type of busi-
ness this is, over history,
family has kept us going,"
Moredock said.
Willard Parker and his
son, Lawrence, set up a saw-
mill at the company's cur-
rent location in 1934. A
monstrous steel table saw,
which was first used during
WWII, still cuts wood there.
The business has been
passed from one generation
to the next, with the fourth
and fifth generations run-

ning it now. Bud Parker, a
third generation and the
family's designated histo-
rian, has only worked for
someone else for one Christ-
mas vacation of his life. He
learned his lesson.
"I found out how nice I
was treated at home," he
said.
While some families
might not be able to handle
working together, Bud jokes
that his family has always
been "exceptionally well-
mannered."
"Our mother allowed
us to disagree, but never
allowed us to be disagree-
able."
The family feeling has
also kept customers com-
ing back. Herb Lippoldt said
the handshake and smile
he gets every time he walks
in the door is something he
values, and it hasn't changed
in the 25 years he's been a
customer.
"You don't just come in
here to get building sup-
plies, it's a meeting place,"
Lippoldt said. "I can drive by
and not buy anything, but
I'll stop in and say 'hi."'
And while customer ser-
vice hasn't changed over the
years, business has. Parker
Lumber started as a sawmill,
and even got a government
contract to provide timber
and supplies for the WWII
effort. But when the timber
was gone, so was the saw-
mill. So the Parkers expand-
ed their builder's hardware
section.
The company's philoso-
phy is to change with the
area's needs and growth,
and Bud said they're proud
to be a part of that.
"People complain about
the people, the traffic I
don't mind," said Bud. "I've
enjoyed it; it's exciting,
like watching your family
grow."

Alex Tchekmeian, now 23, was already in business as a teenager, and now owns a printing and design firm that serves more than 250,000 customers across the globe.


MATT MORRISON
GUEST REPORTER

Things started off smoothly
for Alex Tchekmeian and
the business he began as a
young teen, but as the man
himself will say, success is
about hard work, and the
decision that would shape
Tchekmeian's life was wait-
ing for him.
Tchekmeian, a new resi-
dent to Winter Park and
self-made entrepreneur
at 23, has some bragging
rights. His company, AKT
Enterprises, dealing in de-
signs for the music industry,
has more than 6,000 clients
and 250,000 customers,
and Tchekmeian himself
was named a top 5 entre-
preneur under the age of
25 by Business Week. He is
also doubling his efforts as
a motivational speaker and
author of a selection in the
new "Chicken Soup for the
Teen's Soul," all during the
Christmas rush.
"I think it's just about
going out there and work-
ing hard," Tchekmeian said
of his approach to business
both then and now.
At the age of 14, Tchek-


meian joined a band in his
hometown of Palm Beach
Gardens, Fla. The band
flourished, going on tour
and signing a record. De-
spite the crowds of 500-
600 people they were pull-
ing in, the band's promoter
was still paying them their
standard 50-cents-per-head
rate.
Tchekmeian decided it
would be best for the band
and their promoter to part
ways, then he stepped into
the role himself. He began
booking small venues and
creating promotional ma-
terials. When he couldn't
find reliable designers who
could turn around a concept
quickly, Tchekmeian started
his own design business.
"I really enjoyed business
and music and took it from
there, I started my business,"
he said.
Even after the band end-
ed, and members began go-
ing to college, the business
stayed. Tchekmeian began
promoting other bands
with merchandise from his
company.
It was a good time to
be young and in business,
Tchekmeian said. Even


though there was risk of the
company going bankrupt,
he was in high school and
still lived at home. Without
any investors, all the risk fell
on him; if the companywent
bust, no one else would be
hurt.
That all changed in 2005,
when Tchekmeian went off
to the University of Central
Florida to study business.
Tchekmeian soon realized
that his studies were taking
too much time away from
his business, which was just
starting to move forward.
He came to the conclusion
that he could not do both
and be successful and went
to his parents.
"I told them, 'I may never
in my life have an oppor-
tunity like this. I need to
100-percent focus on this
because it's about to break
big."'
The result was not opti-
mistic.
"They said, if I do this,
they're cutting me off,"
Tchekmeian recalled. They
didn't want to see their son
throw his career away for
his high-school business.
The decision had come, and
it would be all or nothing.


"I told them, I don't need
your money. I'm doing this,"
he said.
With business partner
Jared Mendelewicz, Tchek-
meian grew his business
with just a few employees
and a lot of aspirations.
He has seen his business
through early hurdles and
the current economic reces-
sion and is limbering up for
this holiday season.
"Business is just problem-
solving," he said. "It chal-
lenges you more, and chal-
lenge is healthy, competi-
tion is healthy."
Tchekmeian now travels
and shares his story with
young dreamers, proving
that with hard work, any-
thing is possible. He hopes
to one day return to college
to finish his degree, and pro-
motes advanced education
in his talks. But more than
anything, he exudes a pas-
sion for what he does every
day.
"You look at it like a hob-
by almost more than your
career or your personal life,
but now it's my life," he
said.

march of dimes
November is Prematurity Awareness Month
Join the March of Dimes and help give every baby a healthy start

Every day, we see how premature birth
affects babies and families. With more than
half a million babies born prematurely in
the United States each year, the problem is
bigger than ever. It's the number one threat to
America's newborns, and babies who survive
often have lifelong health problems, including
cerebral palsy, mental retardation, chronic
lung disease, blindness, and hearing loss.
Preterm delivery can happen to any
pregnant woman. In about four out of every 10
cases, the causes are unknown. The March of Dimes has taken on this devastating
problem-to find out what causes it and how it can be stopped.
Warning signs of preterm labor can include contractions every 10 minutes or more
often, change in vaginal discharge, pelvic pressure-the feeling that your baby is
pushing down, low, dull backache, cramps that feel like your period, and or abdomi-
nal cramps with or without diarrhea. Women experiences should call their health
care provider (nurse, doctor or midwife) or go to the hospital right away if they think
they are having preterm labor, or if they have any of the warning signs. Call even if
it's only one sign.
November is Prematurity Awareness Month, and the March of Dimes needs your help
to give all babies a fighting chance. Here's how.

*During November, eat at Sonny's Real Pit BBQ and order the Baby Backs for Babies
at all participating locations.

*Destination Maternity stores (Motherhood Maternity, Pea in the Pod, Mimi Maternity)
will honor the families during their in store GIVE for Preemies program.

*On November 17 have Breakfast for Babies at Panera Bread locations in Central
Florida, Space Coast, and the Treasure Coast.

*Add a Banner or Badge to your email and social networking pages. They're fun and
free and you can get them at marchofdimes.com/fightforpreemies.

*Create a virtual band to celebrate, honor or remember a baby in your life. Donate at
marchofdimes.com/fightforpreemies
For over 65 years, the March of Dimes has saved millions of babies and children
from death and disabilities through our life-saving research, innovative programs,
and dedicated volunteers. The March of Dimes was founded in 1938 by President
Franklin Delano Roosevelt to defeat polio, a dreaded disease that claimed the lives
and limbs of America's children in record numbers. Within 17 years, the Salk vaccine
was developed and polio was defeated.
The March of Dimes then turned its attention to an even greater challenge-fighting
birth defects and other infant health problems. With a track record of success in
bringing people together to solve complex health challenges, the March of Dimes is
uniquely qualified to take on the problem of prematurity.

Such is life


My brother's third wife re-
cently died of alcohol poi-
soning. Over 20 years she
poisoned herself to death
with alcohol. Alcoholism
is an illness that many of
us, myself included, don't
have much tolerance or
sympathy for. If Martha had
died over 20 years fighting
cancer, we'd say, "What a
fighter she was."
I'd see her around town,
at the grocery store, glassy-
eyed, yet with enough
presence of mind to be
chagrinned upon "running"
into me in an obviously ine-
briated state. Martha hated
to disappoint anyone, par-
ticularly me because she
rightly understood that I
am a judgmental person.
What she didn't quite grasp
was "So what, I think you're
a drunk; you're still a hu-
man being I deeply care
for."
All my brother's four
wives have been remark-
able women; I've truly
loved 'em all. Talented
beauties they were and are.
People sometimes say to
me, "Four times! How can


someone be divorced four
times?" I laugh and inward-
ly think, "Well, every one
of my brother's marriages
ended for explainable,
understandable reasons."
Marriage is a crapshoot in
many respects. Whether
you marry young or old,
once or several times, each
time is with a unique indi-
vidual that you really don't
know, perhaps, all that you
need to know when actu-
ally marrying. But isn't that
wonderful, too, and marry
we do.
Martha's alcoholism
began after divorcing
my brother. Uncle Stevie,
which is how I refer to my
brother, worried that in
some way, shape or form he
contributed to her drinking
problem. In reality, being
married to my brother pro-
longed her life. My brother
didn't drink a drop of al-
cohol for nearly 20 years
as a result of getting so
sickeningly bombed at my
cousin's wedding when he
was just 21 years old. So dis-
gusted was he at how sick
he became that he became


a model of sobriety for two
decades. We laugh at this.
Moderation, I say to my
brother. Ha! Ha!
The marriage ended, as
all marriages do for famil-
iar and unique reasons,
and the "governor" was
now gone and the drink-
ing began. Whether out of
sadness or disappointment,
whether to mask or dull
the pain, whether out of
guilt or the sheer need for
a drink, the long slog to an
addictive alcoholic death
began. And the guilt we all
feel for not "stepping in,"
for not intervening, for
not doing enough to save
Martha's life, an unspoken
sorrow.
Intellectually, I know
better. And, I am not so
troubled by "guilt" as some
I know. I really do believe,
"The cowards never started
and the weak died along
the way," but when the
deaths are of people you
love and they were "weak,"
thoughts do surface that if
only I had said or acted
more forcefully when -
things just might have been
different.
I have attended Al-Anon
meetings, which are for
those affected by an alco-
holic in their lives. My son
is an alcoholic, and it is for
me a tragedy and an ongo-
ing sorrow like no other
in my life. I'd give my right
arm today, this moment.
I'd let my arm be macheted
off and I'd have to "belt-up"
the bloody stump myself
and make it to the emer-
gency room on my own, if


that would balance some
cosmic scale such that my
son never had another
drink in his life. I'd do it in
an unthinking heartbeat.
Alas.
There is a part of living
that I think most reflective
parents can agree. As a par-
ent you are no happier than
your most unhappy child.
Life with a child alcoholic
is one constant, "What if?"
What if I had intervened
earlier? What if I had better
screened his peers? What if
I had said "no" to this and
"yes" to that? What If I had
given more? Or, given less?
Did I not do enough? Love
enough? Was I too hard?
Not hard enough? Where
did I fail as a parent? And
no matter the time of day
or year, I can find myself
asking, "What is the point
of all this sorrow?"
And, of course, there is
no point. It just is. I know
that. Mythologist Joseph
Campbell said that life is
about embracing it all. Sor-
row, too. But I must note
that Joseph Campbell never
had any children, sick chil-
dren in particular. While
Campbell is correct, in my
opinion, about acknowl-
edging and accepting the
enormous amount of sor-
row associated with life and
living it goes with the
territory of being human
- a sorrowful child is like
no other pain a human will
ever experience.
Your babies come into
life with such promise that
it makes the more reflec-
tive among us shudder with


what an awesome responsi-
bility that is. The gift of life
is just that and for that life
to end up in an alcoholic
hell is, well, an ongoing
purgatory for the parent,
too. No matter the degree
of detachment you put in
place to protect yourself.
There are situations in
life that are beyond our
control. And, I do genuinely
believe that how we talk
to ourselves is critical to
our own mental health in
such matters. But you know
what? Even if you are able
to rationally understand
that you are not "respon-
sible" for that person drink-
ing or doing drugs, that all
of it really is beyond your
control, the associated sor-
row nonetheless can be, at
times, crippling in its sad-
ness.
No public meeting or
self-help clinic or private
counseling session, no writ-
ten wisdom or kindly ad-
vice can ever eliminate the
bubbling, just-below-the-
surface thought of, "What
fresh hell is my child now,
this moment, experienc-
ing?"
Martha is dead. My son
lives. What sorrow.
And Icarus fell to the sea
and the farmer continued,
unaware, in his fields. Such
is life.

Remember our veterans

During the month of No-
vember we commemorate
two important national an-
niversaries: Veteran's Day
and Thanksgiving. It is not
a coincidence that these
two days occur in the same
month, considering that
as Americans, our greatest
blessing is our freedom, and
it is fitting for us to remem-
ber those who have fought
to protect our freedom. The
American way of life would
not exist were it not for our
veterans.
Today, U.S. soldiers are
around the world using
their talents and strength
to defend democracy and
freedom and cannot be
with their families and
friends during Thanksgiv-
ing this year. This Veteran's
and Thanksgiving Day, it
is only right that we pay
tribute to those whose sac-
rifice and selfless service
have afforded us the price-
less privileges of freedom,
democracy and unmatched
opportunities that we enjoy
in the United States.
Veteran's Day holds a
special place in my family.


My father served his coun-
try in the military and FBI
for many years. He and my
mother instilled in my fam-
ily a deep sense of gratitude
to the sacrifices veterans
had made on our behalf to
protect the freedoms we
daily enjoyed. Each year, as
we gather to give thanks
around the traditional
Thanksgiving table, we re-
member those brave men
and women who have de-
fended our freedoms and
paid the ultimate sacrifice,
and we also remember
those who are away from
their families during the
holiday. Let us never take
for granted all that our vet-
erans sacrifice in order that
we may live in a free land.
I salute the men and
women serving in today's
military today's heroes
and tomorrow's veterans.
They have inherited the
defense of our nation and
stand guard in the shadow
of their predecessors. This
Thanksgiving, I encourage
you, as you gather together
with friends and family, to
remember our veterans and
the incredible gift that they
are to our country.


-Florida Senate President Jeff
Atwater

Trade is part of the solution

Both the World Trade Orga-
nization and Global Trade
Alert recently issued reports
detailing the alarming
trend of creeping protec-
tionism that threatens to
slow the global economic
recovery and hinder na-
tional competitiveness.
Trade is vital to econo-
mies throughout the world,
and the U.S. economy in
particular. In 2008, exports
of goods and services gen-
erated about $1.84 trillion,
or 13 percent, of U.S. GDP,
according to the Commerce
Department. By some cal-
culations, 10 percent of all
U.S. jobs and 20 percent
of our manufacturing jobs
depend on exports. And
trade-related jobs typically
pay 13 to 18 percent more
than the average U.S. wage.
In addition, the claims
of international trade's
adverse impact on the U.S.
economy are frequently ex-
aggerated. A recent study by
the Federal Reserve showed


that import competition is
only responsible for about
2.5 percent of job losses -
most layoffs in America's
highly dynamic economy
stem from technology,
domestic competition
and changes in consumer
choices. Even during the
current economic slow-
down, the resilience of our
exports has been one of
the few bright spots in our
economy.
While economic prog-
ress through expanded
trade and investment can
trigger some dislocations,
those impacts should be
addressed not through
protectionism, but rather
through the expanded
Trade Adjustment Assis-
tance program that was en-
acted as part of the Recov-
ery Act. Dislocated workers
as well as those just enter-
ing the workforce must
have access to education
and training to acquire the
skills they need to secure
high-paying jobs of the 21st
century.
Clearly, trade can be a
driver of economic growth
for the United States. Some
95 percent of the world's


consumers and 80 percent
of global purchasing power
lie beyond our borders, and
we are seeing increased
commercial opportunities
in emerging and develop-
ing economies. And while
the United States and EU
still constitute 54 percent
of the global economy, the
dynamic economies of Asia
have the strongest growth
trajectories.
At my company, we've
seen firsthand how impor-
tant international engage-
ment is to American jobs.
Growing global demand for
our college-level engineer-
ing and computer science
instructional materials
have led to growth in our
staff in Dubuque, Iowa. And
McGraw-Hill Construc-
tion's ability to provide
actionable information on
major building projects in
Korea, China, the Middle
East and elsewhere has pro-
vided growth opportunities
for our U.S.-based employ-
ees.
As important as inter-
national integration is to
the United States, the trade
patterns of recent years

He slid onto the leather

"It's been too long, she

blouse.
"Things are not going ex-
actly as I expected, Mario."
"Meaning?"
"I'm thinking of what we
promised each other at the
beginning ...?"
"Two years ago, Lisa," he
interrupted. "A long time."
"We knew we had a spe-
cial thing for each other. We
settled on once every week.
So be it!"
"I know it's tough on
you, Lisa. My job won't let
me come up for air... may-
be things'll let up."
"We used to live for each
Thursday."
"And I'd like to be doing
it now. But a slew of things
are pulling me in differ-
ent directions. Getting free
time is a can of worms."
"Mario, does it occur to
you what my life is like?"
"Are you OK, Lisa ...?"
"Yes, just fine. But I teach
a big overload at Columbia.
I'm on a zillion committees.
Still, I find time for us."
"Lisa, with me it's not
just the time involved. Mad-
eleine's gotten suspicious.
I've gotta watch my step."
"Is that new?"
"Not exactly. But she's
more uptight than ever.
Maybe it's that she's older
than I am. I suspect she's
checking up on me if I'm
out of her sight for five
minutes."
"As a law partner, does
she have an office near you?
"No, the partners' suites
are way in the back by
themselves. My little cubby-
hole is up in the front with
the clerks and the jailhouse
lawyers."
"Mario, dear boy, we
don't have to worry about
being seen together if you
take the shortcut through
Steinway Hall, and go in
the hotel from 57th Street,
while I use the 56th Street
entrance and back eleva-
tor. We each go to the floor
above our room and walk
separately down the stairs
to our floor."


"I don't like to give the
hotel my identification,"
Mario said.
"Do you need to do that
even when you pay with
cash?"
"I told you, Lisa. They
Xerox my driver's license
whenever I sign in. They
know exactly who I am."
"I can't do anything
about that. But I manage
to live up to everything
I promised. Nothing will
change to stop me."
"I know," Mario said.
"It's a damn good thing you
give me cash to pay for the
room. No Visa bills to ex-
plain."
"Why don't we just relax
and talk about personal
things?"
"Lisa, the pressure's got
me uptight and I can't relax
anymore."
She slapped the tabletop
firmly. "The pressure should
be to keep your word, Ma-
rio. There's honor among
thieves. And we are thieves.
Accept it."
"One thing, Lisa: If you
ever think I might be two-
timing you, get it out of
your head. There's no one
else, but Madeleine would
kill me if she had any in-
kling of us. I gotta keep a
low profile."
Lisa laughed under her
breath, "And you didn't
know that before we were
lovers?"
"Well, with a heavy-hitter
like Madeleine it's not easy.
She never gives me any
slack. Thank God you don't
have to worry about things
at home."
"Mario, I told you I could
handle my end. I've never
bothered you about it."
He swallowed a fork-
ful of blinchiki and said, "I
worry what would happen
to you if any of this leaked
out."
"It wouldn't wreck my
marriage. It would hurt
Paul, but he'd never leave
me."
"He wouldn't mind shar-


ing you with a young stud
like me?"
"Paul's been a radiologist
for 25 years. Impotence is
a professional hazard. He's
never lacked understand-
ing about my personal
needs. He loves me."
Mario drank his coffee
slowly. "You're a damned
attractive woman, Lisa, and
I'm sure others share my
opinion."
"Mario, I'm satisfied with
the status quo. I'm not in-
terested in having other
admirers."
"Meaning?"
"I mean only that I want
us to go back to exactly
how we were before."
"It's not as easy as all
that, Lisa."
"There isn't any 'all that'
Mario. Promises must be
kept. I keep mine and you
keep yours."
"Wise up, Lisa, for God's
sake. Things change."
Mario picked up the bill
from the table and started
to get up.
"Back to the salt mines

"Sit down, big shot. Lis-
ten carefully. You should
know I'm changing my
will today. You'll no longer
be in it. I was leaving you
$100,000."
"Lisa, what a generous
person you are!"
"I know that already,
Mario. But I'm writing you
out..."
"Any other nice news?"
"Yes. Your wife, Mad-
eleine, will receive 10 grand
from me in my will"
"You're kidding! What
the hell does a rich dame
like my wife need with
money from you?"
"Nothing, I should imag-
ine. But, when I die, she'll
be damned interested in
the papers my lawyer will
give her before he hands
her my check. She must
sign the papers as 'Read
and Understood' before the
bequest can be completed."
"What's in the papers,


Lisa?"
"My written description
of our affair. Madeleine will
get Xeroxes of all the room
registrations you signed.
Your wife's a lawyer we
don't need to draw her a
picture"
"Lisa, you're still going to
live a helluva long time. I'm
not worried about anything
in your will."
"Don't play games. If you
and I don't patch things up
by next Thursday, I'll go to
Madeleine and tell her the
whole story. I'll apologize
for two-timing her with a
husband who's not good
enough for her."
Mario sighed audibly.
"How about your husband
Paul?"
"I told you. We under-
stand each other. Nothing
can separate us."
"My God, Lisa. If I had
had any idea you could be
so ..."
"Hold on, Mario," she
interrupted. "I'm an old-
fashioned girl. I believe in
keeping promises, or not
making them at all."
Mario spread his palms
on the table and leaned
back hard against the leath-
er bench.
"Would you really do
that?" For the first time
in their conversation, he
looked her in the eye.
"Do you have the guts to
test me?" she asked.
Mario starred at her
blankly.
"Let's just forget we had
this little chat, Mario, when
we see each other next
Thursday. Same time. Same
place. Looking forward,
dear boy."
She got up, leaned over
and kissed him on the
cheek. "Be prompt!"
Walking back into her
world on 57th Street,
Lisa was smiling as she
hummed, "... you wonderful
town."

tration's credit, they have
prioritized trade enforce-
ment and strengthening
support for American
workers. But we need to do
more.
America's interna-
tional economic policy for


the 21st century should
eliminate foreign barriers
and open major markets
throughout the world.
We must finalize pending
agreements with Colom-
bia, Panama and Korea.
We must create a new
agreement with our Asia-
Pacific trading partners and
eliminate barriers for our
world-class products and
services. And completion of
an ambitious Doha Agenda
would go a long way toward
promoting new trade flows
that are vital to global eco-
nomic growth.
President Obama has
pressed an ambitious
agenda for reviving the
U.S. economy, but it comes


with a hefty price tag. Lib-
eralizing global trade is an
opportunity to generate
the economic growth that
will help to finance these
initiatives. For our workers
and industries to succeed
at home and in the inter-
national economy for gen-
erations to come, we must
move forward quickly to
open the world's markets
to America's goods and ser-
vices.

On Nov. 6, using four instruments
worth many times the value of
the hall in which they were play-
ing, the Stradivari String Quartet
played a superb, richly varied
recital in Rollins College's Tiedtke
Hall. With amazing ease, the
Stradivari players produced aes-
thetic results of unfailing beauty.
Franz Schubert's melodious
"Quartet in G minor" identi-
fied the Stradivari as extraordi-
narily elegant performers with
surprising power and lush tone
in a composition that took them
from Classical to inchoate Ro-
manticism.
Many passages in this quartet
approached the "fairyland
atmosphere" of Mendelssohn's
"Midsummer Nights Dream."
Twentieth-century Spaniard
Joaquin Turina's "La Oracion
del Torero" ("The Bullfighter's
Prayer") encompasses much
influence of his famous Paris
colleagues, Ravel and Debussy,
in a melodious flow of charm-
ing Andalusian folk genre string
music.
Before intermission the
Stradivari Quartet performed
Hungarian Bela Bartok's "Quartet
No. 4." Bartok's invention is ever
eclectic, tossing in everything but
the kitchen sink in search of a
piece that contains something to
please each of his hearers.
Bartok introduces much

and other aggressiveness that
good old Strads shouldn't have
to capitulate to. To my ears, the
only thing that Mr. Bartok doesn't
make is music particularly any-
thing that even hints at melody.
I can only wish the 250-year-old
Strads something better, and
safer in coming centuries! There
is a whole undemanding world
out there that loves Bela Bartok,
so he is not lonely, wherever he is.
The Johannes Brahms "String
Quartet in A minor No. 2" that
took 23 years to write brought
the Stradivari players program to
a dramatic, full-throated close.
The four players were able to find
an orchestra of interweaving
melodies and thick harmonies in
Brahms' music. Brahms' composi-
tion concerns itself with the syn-
thesis and intricate development
of his thematic material.
An interesting fact about
the Stradivari Quartet: Players
of Polish, Chinese, English, and
Swiss extraction sat together and
played music of Austrian, Spanish,
Hungarian and German com-
posers (on Italian instruments
yet!). All four Stradivari players
are consummate virtuosi, each
complementing the other, and
all meeting each other at near-
perfection. Winter Parkers owe
Rollins College a loud "Bravo" for
the opportunity to sample live!
- the world's greatest musicians.
