Ice from sprinkler systems formed easily this past week as record-low temperatures froze Central Florida for 10 days.

Monday's 29 degree temperature ties record low set in 1982


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
As a second arctic blast in
as many weeks pushed into
the southernmost parts of
the state, Central Florida
was blanketed with sub-
freezing temperatures
again this past weekend,
adding to an already record
run of cold.
In the wake of some light
snow flurries, ice stayed be-
hind in some areas, with a
hard freeze keeping tem-
peratures below 32 degrees
until after 10 a.m. Sunday.
Most of Orange County
experienced a high tem-
perature Saturday that was
10 degrees colder than the
average low.
Beginning Jan. 2 the
mercury began to fall, as a
blast of cold originating in


northern Canada pushed
through the South. Record
lows were neared or set re-
peatedly over the course of
the next week. Orlando saw
two record lows in a four-
day span, with a low of 31
on Jan. 7, tying a record set
in 2001.
As even more cold air
surged through behind a
front that dropped snow
and sleet in the area, anoth-
er record would be equaled
that had stood untouched
for nearly 30 years. Monday,
Jan. 11 saw a low of 29 de-
grees, last seen in 1982.
For most of last week
high temperatures would
sit below the average low
for the area, damaging
some crops as citrus grow-
ers struggled to deal with
the cold.


The end of the cold is
coming, for now, with fore-
casters expecting a return
to normal temperatures by
the weekend, with lows in
the lower 50s and highs in
the 70s.




Jan. 11, 29 degrees, ties low
record last set in 1982
Jan. 10, 29 degrees, low re-
cord is 26, set in 1970
Jan. 9, 29 degrees, low re-
cord is 25, set in 2002

cord is 31 set in 1999

drive-thrus?

OBSERVER STAFF

The Maitland City Council
approved the first reading
of an ordinance on Monday
that would prevent the con-
struction of drive-thru busi-
nesses in the city's down-
town for one year.
Officials are worried that
facilities such as fast food
restaurants and banks will
affect the plans for Mait-
land's pedestrian-friendly
Town Center. They want a
moratorium on such devel-
opment while an drive-thru
impact study is done.
The City Commission
voted 4-1 Monday to ap-
prove the first reading of the
ordinance, and Jan. 25 will
be the second and final pub-
lic hearing. Councilman Jeff
Flowers dissented.
As it stands, the ordinance
would put a one-year mora-
torium on drive-thru facili-
ties, with the option of an
indefinite extension. Mayor
Doug Kinson and Council-
woman Linda Frosch said
they'd like to see the mora-
torium be cut down to six
months and the extension
option nixed.
Members from the Co-
alition for Property Rights
were at Monday's meeting
to campaign against the or-
dinance.

Winter Park's first ever ice
skating rink may have bro-

Knight broke the good news
to the City Commission
Monday.


Based on figures from the
University of Central Flori-

ously told the Commission
that he expected the rink
to break even. At Monday's
meeting, he tentatively de-
livered on that estimate.

HISTO Y YSTERY


Maitland H ical Society


Have you ever come across
a family photo where you
can't quite remember who
was in the picture or where
you were at the time? You
flip over the picture to see
the caption written on the
back, but unfortunately it's
completely blank? At the
Maitland Historical Society
we too have pictures that


remain a mystery to us. The
people or places in photo-
graphs have gone unidenti-
fied for years, and we need
your help to solve them. If
you can help, please con-
tact the Maitland Historical
Society at 407-644-2451 or
info@maitlandhistory.org

ICE RINK I Almost 10,000 people visited the first-ever ice rink in Central Park


< continued from the front page
there on the ice," Mayor Ken
Bradley said.
Bradley's comment set
off a flurry of compliments
from other commissioners.
"We got great reviews
from the teenagers, which I
think is a good thing," Com-


missioner Phil Anderson
said.
"I don't think any of us
fell down," Commissioner
Beth Dillaha said. "Well I fell
down, almost."
Adding to officials' skat-
ing prowess, the city could
also cut a good deal, spend-
ing $123,000 to operate the


rink from Nov. 20 to Jan. 3,
and collecting $127,000 in
revenue. Nearly 10,000 visi-
tors strapped on skates for
$10 per person. The city also
generated revenue with ad-
vertisements on the tent,
helping to balance the bud-
get.
"I don't think there's any


question that we could do
this again next year," Knight
said, though the final tally
for the liquid-cooled rink's
power bill and replanting of
sod under the rink has not
been factored in. Knight
said the final balance sheet
won't be more than $5,000
in the red.


The city's biggest prob-
lem, with repeated weather
fronts chilling the air, was
disassembling the rink.
"We did have some trou-
ble getting rid of the ice,"
Knight said. "It wouldn't
melt."


DRIVE THRUS I Moratorium on drive-thrus would target new construction


< continued from the front page
Kinson said the city is
informing all of the down-
town property owners of
the impending vote.
"They will be given the
opportunity to respond,"
he said. "I kind of feel there
aren't a lot of properties
that would even be impact-
ed by it."
On Dec. 14, a resolution
was passed 4-1, with Flow-


ers dissenting, to reject new
drive thru project applica-
tions so as to prevent a flow
of such applications before
the ordinance goes into ef-
fect.
Flowers said the city
should follow its process for
approving ordinances, and
that it is unfair to the pub-
lic.
"I don't like this (reso-
lution)," Flowers said. "It's
taking power away from our


constitution. It's an abso-
lute insult to the backbone
of Maitland... that's not the
kind of government I want
to live under."
Councilwoman Bev Re-
ponen disagreed, saying the
resolution is an act of for-
ward thinking.
"This is a case of getting
it right. It's giving us enough
time to plan and plan care-
fully," Reponen said.
City Attorney Cliff Shep-


ard said the moratorium
only applies to a develop-
ment where a drive thru is
a component, and existing
drive-thru facilities will get
exemptions.
"It's not a moratorium
on all building permits," he
said. "It's a moratorium on
those that would address
constructing or rebuilding
drive-up facilities."
Councilman Phil Bonus
said Council is not using a


moratorium to revise zon-
ing codes.
"This is a stopgap mea-
sure to cure a situation that
we see occurring, not just an
anti-zoning tool," Council-
man Phil Bonus said.
There were no drive-thru
projects being reviewed by
staff before the resolution
was passed.

Knights ground Owls in blowout


UCF dominates 2010 conference debut


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Knights are on their way
in conference play, with a
big win over Rice in the UCF
Arena to start the second
half of the season.
"If you want to stay at the
top of this conference you
have to take care of your
business at home," Knights
coach Kirk Speraw said af-
ter the game.
And the Knights did just
that, dominating the Owls
the whole game, leading by
double digits for three quar-
ters on their way to a 77-58
blowout.
UCF forward Keith Clan-
ton had a career game,
shooting 17 points to help
lead his team to victory,
pushed by Speraw's edict
that he should play more
aggressively as a power
forward. Though he'd fre-
quently led the team in scor-


ing, he turned his shooting
up a notch, even taking
shots from the outside. He
would drain two 3-point-
ers in the game. He also
took command under the
basket, stealing away some
balls that could have easily
resulted in Owls' offensive
rebounds.
AJ. Rompza also main-
tained pressure on the
court, scoring 13 points,
adding 6 assists, 5 steals and
5 rebounds.
The win was UCF's (9-6)
first in the conference this
year, giving them a good
start in their C-USA debut
game. Rice, on the other
hand, lost its second, and its
sixth road game.
Despite the big win, some
weak points were revealed
that the Knights will need
to mend. Rice dominated
under the basket, particu-
larly on UCF's end of the
court, where they frequent-

ly picked up uncontested
rebounds and swiped the
ball from the hands of sur-
prised Knights.
A tenacious Marcus Jor-


dan managed to pick up
two steals for the Knights,
also scoring four points.
The Knights return to the
court Wednesday against


Marshall at 8 p.m. The Thun-
dering Herd is 2-0 in confer-
ence play and 13-2 overall.

rebounds


After losing a pair of games, the Cats
trounced Edgewater and Freedom High


JESSICA DAWKINS
GUEST REPORTER
The Winter Park Wildcats
reversed their momentum
following their first losing
streak of the season, beating
Edgewater and then slam-
ming Freedom Friday night
at home in a 77-48 blowout.
Junior Austin Rivers led
his team with a massive 31
points in three and a half
quarters.
"It's a great way to start
the second half of the sea-
son," Rivers said. "We just
had a big win over Edgewa-
ter, and we just beat up on
Freedom pretty bad, so we
have good momentum go-
ing."
Winter Park's entire start-
ing lineup is gaining mo-
mentum, as Robert Lovaglio
had 13 points and 10 re-
bounds, Brett Comer record-
ed 10 points, five assists, and
two steals, and Adam Jones
netted six points, three as-
sists, two blocks, and a steal.
Isaac Turner also contribut-
ed points to the board.
On the other side of the
ball, Freedom's star Floyd
Higgins was held to only
four points by a fantastic
Winter Park defense. Hig-
gins had scored 20 points in
a recent win over University.
The Patriots' high scorer was
Gabriel Diaz, who was kept
to nine points.
The game catapulted
the team to new heights,
and it showed everywhere
in Wildcat Country. While
head coach David Bailey sat
calmly on the sidelines, his
juniors and seniors system-


atically cut down the Patri-
ots, playing team ball, and
playing it well.
In the first quarter alone
Winter Park recorded 23
points, followed by 20 in
the second, 19 in the third
and 15 in the fourth, with
the Wildcats' bench gradu-
ally replacing starters on
the court. It was apparent
that the Wildcats could have
won with their backup play-
ers, showcasing the team's
depth.
The Wildcats have now
improved to a 13-4 record,
winning their last four
games in a row, and it's full
steam ahead against district
rivals. Next up for the team is
an away game versus Timber
Creek, a surefire win for the
streaking lineup, and sure to
bring another extra dose of
confidence before a tough
tournament game against
Washington D.C.'s Gonzaga
High School.
If the Cats can squeeze
out a victory in the Hoophall
Classic, it's smooth sailing
for the next couple of games
until a matchup against Dr.
Phillips on Jan. 29. There's
much incentive for Dr. Phil-
lips to win the game, as it's
their last of the season.
The final games of the
season for Winter Park in-
clude contests versus Pun-
ta Gorda's Charlotte High
School, Orlando's Olympia
High School, and Fort Lau-
derdale's Pine Crest High
School. If the team can keep
the energy going through
their last three competi-
tions, they will likely reign
supreme in District 4.

As a consumer, I ventured
out to purchase gifts for
friends and loved ones this
holiday season and noticed
a distinctly different
business climate than I
have been accustomed to
over the years.

Credit card blues
Credit card companies
seem to be especially hard
hit. Most have lost sight of
dedicated customers by
reducing themselves to
announcing increases in
interest rates and annual
fees by sending out notices
with such small print I can
barely read them, even with
my glasses.
For each credit card
notice I receive that
changes their terms
resulting in an increase in
fees, I immediately send
them the notice back
canceling my account. I


now have one credit card.
The good news is that
I charge so much each
month, I was able to get
hundreds of dollars in
rewards, which helped out
during the holidays!

Customer service
After years as a T-Mobile
customer, I decided to
switch my business cell.
During the process, I was
transferred no less than
13 times, often to a person
who knew nothing about
why I was calling, so I had
to give each person my
personal information. I
finally got through the
process, but only after
going through much more
stress than any City Council
meeting.
And so, this holiday
season, the only present
my daughter wants
for Christmas is a new


T-Mobile MyTouch. So,
when she and I visited
their store, I found out
that the phone was going
to be nearly three times
the price advertised
because we didn't have
our current phones long
enough. The sales associate
couldn't have cared less
about our business. I had
to live with my daughter's
disappointment.
I recently contacted the
local Fox television station
after seeing their full page
ad on New Year's Eve,
wanting to let them know
how much I appreciate
their programming and
ask them to do everything
possible to strike their
deal with Bright House
so I could watch the
Gators game. To my
surprise, Fox did not put
a customer service person
on the phone, but rather,
someone who was rude and
disrespectful. I requested
to speak to the manager.
George, the manager, only
became courteous after I
suggested that I go live with
my concerns about the
situation.

Defective product
In these economic times,
there seems to be more
product defects than
normal. My gas grill at
home, after years of abuse,


finally died and I was
delighted to receive a new
one for Christmas. But
when I opened the box,
I was shocked to find the
hood of the grill crushed,
with no apparent damage
to the exterior of the box.
Apparently, workers
were so concerned
about losing their jobs,
they decided to ship the
defective product anyway.
The good news is when the
grill was returned, Home
Depot was just as shocked,
and immediately replaced
it with an upgraded model
at a lower price.
After a nice Christmas
Eve dinner at my in-laws,
we decided to have an after-
dinner drink, when we
noticed a sticky mess under
the bottle in the cabinet.
My father-in-law pulled it
out and opened it, only to
find a defect in the bottle,
which resulted in the rest
of the contents pouring out
onto the floor and counter
top.
The bottle, which
retails for around $60,
was returned to the ABC
store for a refund. To my
father-in-law's shock,
the manager, Troy, said,
"You expect me to pay for
that? I would never get
reimbursed!" My father-
in-law responded, "So you
want me, your customer,
to pay for the defect?"


"There is nothing I can do,"
the manager replied and
went about his business.
He couldn't have cared less
about his customer.
The only explanation
I have for this boorish
behavior on the part of
more than a few workers
and supervisors spells
itself out in a recent study
where it was found that 55
percent of workers in the
United States are unhappy
with their jobs. This could
explain why so many
businesses I frequent put
the consumer second in
trying economic times.

The bright side
Although the economy has
taken its toll on businesses
throughout our country,
there is a bright spot as
my experience with Home
Depot shows. Businesses
that are genuinely
concerned about their
customers will show you,
in good times and bad,
that they believe in the
centuries-old adage, "The
Customer is Always Right."
This consumer will take
note of companies who
turn their backs on them,
and those companies that
survive while coveting
customer satisfaction will
be stronger as a result.

PHOTOS COURTESY OF ALLIEPOHL.COM
Allie Pohl's Ideal Woman Necklace was designed to draw attention to society's expectations of the ideal woman, creating a unique fashion conversation piece in the process.

A local's necklace, a statement about society's ideal woman, will be featured in Marie Claire Greece.


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
The cashier at Michael's craft store
looked at the dangling plastic pen-
dant and thought it was a cat.
"I told her it was a Barbie doll
crotch," Winter Park resident Al-
lie Pohl said, recounting her most
memorable experience wearing her
necklace.
Flustered and red in the face, the
older woman took an extra 10 min-
utes to check her out.
"She won't ever look at Barbie
the same," Allie said.
Pohl's Ideal Woman Necklace
takes the form of Barbie, an image
of the perfect woman created more
than 50 years ago, to make a state-
ment.
"The necklace was created out
of my belief that society is obsessed
with the idea of the perfect woman
... I try to critique trends that I find
impractical or destructive to the fe-
male form."
Pohl is a graduate student in the
Electronic Media Arts Design pro-
gram at the University of Denver.


The necklace takes the silhouette of
Barbie from the waist to just above
the knee, and comes in a variety of
neon colors. Her mother, a Winter
Park resident, prefers the one with

"The bling necklace is my favor-
ite," Joan Pohl said.
Joan wears the necklaces fre-
quently, and said that there hasn't
been a day that she's worn them
that someone hasn't made a com-


ment. She said all of her feedback
has been positive, and many of her
Winter Park friends have bought
the necklaces.
"It's like an icebreaker and a con-
versation piece,"Joan said. "It unites
females."
Allie has created a blog for ideal
necklace owners to share their ice-
breaking experiences. Comments
range from praise for the design to
happy accounts of shocking fellow
lawyers during business meetings.
Shock isn't uncommon, and Al-
lie doesn't shy away from uncon-
ventional ideas. She really got an
interest in art as social and feminist
commentary when she began her
master's degree. Her early pieces
explored trends in female hair and
hair removal. Using a My Size Bar-
bie as inspiration and template, she
created porcelain sculptures with
Chia plants growing out of the legs,
armpits and, how Allie might put it,
crotch. That's when Allie said she
fell in love with the Barbie figure
and continued to work with it.
Allie said her art has a purpose


and wants it to make people ques-
tion the world around them and
think about how images skinny
models and actresses that never
age and social constructs affect
them. She hopes her necklaces raise
awareness to combat these impos-
sible "Barbie" ideals.
"I've been forced and encouraged
to think about what I put out there,
what it means and how it resonates
with people," she said.
"She's establishing a brand with a
message, and making art accessible
to the masses in a personal way, said
Molly O'Brien, a necklace owner
and Allie's friend.
Allie's necklaces, which have
only been out for two months, are
certainly resonating with the fash-
ion community. They've been fea-
tured on several fashion Web sites
and blogs, and in February will be in
Marie Claire Greece.
"It strikes a real emotional con-
nection with the person who's
wearing it," O'Brien said. "There's
something she's tapping into that's
connecting with women."

Arthur "Pappy" Kennedy
Prayer Breakfast
The 19th annual Arthur
"Pappy" Kennedy Prayer
Breakfast will be held at
7:45 a.m. Monday, Jan. 18,
and celebrates the life and
accomplishments of Orlan-
do's first African-American
elected official, Pappy Ken-
nedy, as well as Martin Lu-
ther King Jr. It is at the First
Baptist Church of Orlando,
3000 S. John Young Pkwy.
Kennedy positively
touched the lives of many
Orlando youth through the
promotion of education
and hard work, according to
the Central Florida YMCA,
a sponsor of the event. He
was elected to the Orlando
City Commission in 1972.
At the prayer breakfast,
the 2010 Arthur "Pappy"
Kennedy Lifetime Achieve-
ment Award will be present-
ed along with the Arthur
"Pappy" Kennedy Scholar-
ship. The $1,200 scholar-
ship is presented to an Afri-
can-American high school
senior who has exemplified
dedication to their com-
munity and education. Pro-
ceeds from the event will be
used to support the Arthur
"Pappy" Kennedy Memorial
Scholarship Fund.


Who is Arthur

"Pappy"

Kennedy?


Arthur "Pappy" Kennedy was
Orlando's first black elected
official. Pappy, feeling that blacks
were underrepresented in local
politics, first ran for election in the
1967 Orlando City Commission
race. His run for office was not
successful that year, but in 1972,
he made history as Orlando's
first black elected official. At
that time, council seats were
decided by citywide elections -
He received support from voters
from all over the city. In 1976
he was re-elected to his office
with 78 percent of the vote, the
largest percentage in Orlando's
history.
As an elected official, he
had a strong impact on the
building of Hankins Park and the
landscaping of Parramore Street.
He also organized the Orlando
Negro Chamber of Commerce.
Pappy also worked with Meals
on Wheels, the United Negro
College Fund, and the NAACP,
and he was an advocate for the
poor.

A stroke here,


A stroke there ...


A stroke here, a stroke there
and pretty soon you're
thinking like Dick Cheney
or Rush Limbaugh. That's
my theory on what has hap-
pened to the vice president.
I'll bet he's had a series
of small strokes over the
years (decades, actually),
imperceptible to the casual
observer, but cumulatively,
devastating to his cerebral
cortex. Little burned-out
brain places that prevent
him from ever connecting
the dots, not only that, but
from connecting with hu-
manity.
For all we know Dick
Cheney might be working
with the equivalent of an
advanced "Alzheimeric"
brain. Swiss cheese, in other
words. Hopefully, his heirs
will insist upon an autopsy
come that fateful day when
what remaining life that re-
mains in him finally evapo-
rates. Envision an image of
one last, final wisp of snarl-
ing bleakness inexorably
coiling into oblivion. An au-
topsy will undoubtedly re-
veal that the vice president
was for all intents and pur-
poses brain dead for nearly
35 years prior to his actual
demise, only his brain kept
spouting right wing rheto-
ric. Poor Dear just couldn't
help himself. Thank good-
ness for Depends, particu-
larly during those stressful


times when you blast a fel-
low hunter in the head.
Rush Limbaugh fried
his brain on illegal pre-
scription drugs secured by
his black hired help. Too
funny. He pled guilty to
a crime he once-upon-a-
time thought warranted
castration and a lifetime of
incarceration. But not for
white boys, don't-cha-see.
He destroyed his hearing
with drugs and now wears
hearing aids the size of Tex-
as and occasionally pops
into an emergency room
with chest palpitations.
But not to worry, Limbaugh
has a Grinch's pinched
little heart matched with
a simpleton's mind. Again,
a perfect match. Reduced
mental capacity right
wing dribble.
Speaking of which, Sarah
Palin is the Republican
Party's best presidential
candidate. You know what?
It's true. By 2012, Sarah will
have actually read a book
or two. Which immediately
qualifies her for higher of-
fice. Republican standards
being what they are. Oh,
I'm sorry. It's not that Re-
publicans don't read, it's
that they all read from the
same book, ur, excuse me
once again, not the same
book, unfortunately, it's
goofiness gleaned from all
reading the same page. Not


even an entire book.
Oh, that's not right ei-
ther. Remember how, once-
upon-a-time, we were all
so utterly fascinated with
Ayn Rand's work. She's the
Republican's rediscovered
(yet again, sigh) intellectual
darling of the moment. You
remember don't-cha. I was
15 at the time (1964) when
I fell in love with Howard
Roark of "The Fountain-
head." Ooooh, the rugged
individual incapable of
bending to the masses, un-
willing to compromise with
mendacious totalitarian
mediocrity. Love it. I do.
Then Rand wrote "Atlas
Shrugged." Which causes
modern day Republicans to
be nearly orgasmic, so ex-
cited they are by the idea of
all the "smart, unyielding"
right thinking, virtuous
entrepreneurs withhold-
ing their talents as America
crumbles and the dissi-
pated left is crushed, left to
mindlessly mutter, "Who is
John Galt?" As the nation
rebuilds itself, Phoenix like,
on the righteous virtue of
Republican selfishness.
With Tom Selleck and John
Voight seamlessly tap-danc-
ing out "Yankee Doodle
Dandy" and the Mormon
Tabernacle Choir belting
out "The Battle Hymn of
the Republic." All gloriously
choreographed in the finest
Busby Berkeley tradition!
And Sarah Palin is crowned
Queen of North America,
ur, President of the United
States and wait, what's this?
Dick Cheney is persuaded
Lazarus-like, to again serve
the nation as vice president.
Oh, happy daze. Huzzanah!
Huzzanah!
Wouldn't that (2012) be
just the bestest Republican
Convention of all time!! A
Palin/Cheney ticket. No
brain and Swiss cheese
brain. Hmmm? We've al-
ready done that you say?
(Think: 2000/2004 elec-


tions.) Gosh. We have.
Uncanny. Yet! Republican
redux!
Actually, that is patently
unfair. Sarah Palin does
have a brain, contrary to
all those nasty left-leaning
reports by the "drive-by"
media. She does read books
(Any number of the Gos-
pel of Wealth screeds. She,
like totally man, internal-
ized the following: Jesus
wants me, personally, me
to be wealthy! He does!).
Palin listened to that mes-
sage on books on tape
(the unabridged in-tongue
version.) Palin is reported
to have started "Atlas
Shrugged" several times but
found a much better use for
that voluminous book as a
doorstop. I have to agree on
that one. Sarah ghostwrote
a bestseller that sums up
her life and philosophy as
follows:
"I'm so pretty. I'm pretty
simplistic. But that's OK cuz
I'm soooo pretty. I'm your
grrrrl. Vote simplistic. Vote
Republican."
Whatta ya think!?! I don't
know. That sounds a lot
like the last few Republican
presidential campaigns.
America confronts
monumental challenges in
the 21st century but what
do "our" Republicans do
but trot out simplistic 18th
century rhetoric and run
it up the founding fathers'
flagpole and require we all
genuflect or we are some-
what suspect. Unpatriotic
for sure.
Hey, you right wing num-
bchucks, dipsticks if you
will, if the good ol' days of
our founding fathers are
the golden benchmark of
our democracy, why don't
we reinstitute the voting
standards from those hal-
cyon times? If only white,
propertied men were who
the founding fathers saw
fit to vote, why change
the standards? I mean you


are a strict construction-
ist (original intent, etc., ad
nauseum)? Uh, uh, uh.
Oh, and please, let's not
forget an even more sacred
text than the American
Constitution, Adam Smith's
"Wealth of Nations," a
book that presents the
foundations of capitalism
101. Capitalism is but one
expression of one form of
human activity. My only
criticism is that in "some"
circles that "one particular
expression" has become the
end all/be all manifestation
of what it means to be a
human being (and how we
organize ourselves). Simple
thinking, yet again.
It's like the Republican
Party (since Nixon) has had
a series of collective little
strokes, much as Vice Presi-
dent Cheney in a probabil-
ity has experienced. Either
that or they've all drunk the
same Kool Aid of simplis-
tic thinking. No taxes. No
regulations. Terrorists ev-
erywhere! America forever!
At war.
Oh, before you get your
Republican undies all in
a knot, I am going to sink
even lower next week.
What can be lower than
"dissin"' the Republican
brain-dead? So sorry for the
redundancy. What can be
lower than "dissin"' Repub-
licans?
Democrats! At least Re-
publicans have an excuse.
They don't pretentiously
claim to have the intellect.
See: Sarah "I'm so pretty"
Palin.
Next week: "On Electing
President Brainiac: Just An-
other Suit."

Letter tothe Editor


Been thinking about
Medicare Part B?
If you are covered under
Medicare Part A, but origi-
nally opted not to apply for
Medicare Part B, now's your
opportunity to enroll in
Part B. The general enroll-
ment period runs from Jan.
1 through Mar. 31.
But first, you may be
wondering: what are Parts
A and B? And why would
someone get one and not
the other? Here are the nuts
and bolts.
Medicare Part A (hospi-


tal insurance) helps pay for
inpatient care in a hospital
or skilled nursing facility
following a hospital stay,
some home health care,
and hospice care.
Medicare Part B (medi-
cal insurance) helps pay for
doctors' services and many
other medical services and
supplies not covered by
hospital insurance.
When you first become
eligible to apply for Medi-
care Part A, you also have
the option of enrolling in
Part B for a monthly pre-
mium. Some people decide


not to because they do not
want to pay the premium or
for other reasons. But you
may discover that as your
medical needs change, it is
to your advantage to enroll.
That's where enrollment
periods come into play.
When you first become
eligible for Part A, you have
a seven-month period
(your initial enrollment
period) in which to sign up
for Part B. After the initial
enrollment period, you can
only sign up during a later
year's general enrollment
period.


Each year, the Medicare
general enrollment period
runs Jan. 1 through Mar. 31.
Your coverage begins the
following July. But keep in
mind that, for most people,
the monthly premium in-
creases 10 percent for each
12-month period you were
eligible for, but did not en-
roll in, Medicare Part B.
So if you are covered
under Medicare Part A and
you've been thinking about
applying for Part B, now is
the time to act. Learn more
about Medicare by reading
Social Security's publication


on the subject at social-
security.gov/pubs/10043.
html. You also can learn a
lot about Medicare by visit-
ing socialsecurity.gov and
selecting "Medicare" at the
top of the page on the right
side.
Or visit Medicare's Web
site at medicare.gov.

Mountains high,

That doesn't love a
Mountainn" Robert
Frost might have written.
(But he didn't.)
At sea level the human
imagination, like the hu-
man body, is earthbound by
invisible gravity.
On a mountaintop the
pull on the imagination is
upward, ever higher, liber-
ating.
A mountaintop is
reached only by exertion,
physical or mechanical.
There's the achievement!
After all, anyone can
walk downhill, or coast
home.
As I write these words,
I'm thinking of a spot high
on the side of a "Rocky
Mountain" in Glacier Na-
tional Park, in Montana.
There, where I climbed
at 19, my b.w. and I pic-
nicked a few summers ago
and listened to the voices of


Thursday, January 14, 2010 Page 13


mountains.
Someone reputedly
asked legendary Sir George
Mallory to identify the well-
spring of his urge to climb
Mt. Everest, the world's
highest mountain.
Mallory, speaking in the
simplest and the most mys-
tical words, said, "Because it
is there."
Sir George disappeared
high into eternity in the
clouds only a few short
yards from his goal.
Mallory is gone. Everest
is still there beckoning the
dreamers, the adventurers,
and, perhaps, the mad.
Martin Luther King pro-
claimed, "I have been to the
mountain," shortly before
he was brought to Earth by
the lowest of scoundrels.
King's mountain was
not Everest, but was just as
risky.
King joined Mallory in
choosing the lonely, peril-
ous path of the high-alti-
tude dreamer.
The Greek gods lived
on Olympus, a formidable
mount in Macedonia but
far more accessible than an
Everest.
Olympus was a spot just
lofty enough to distinguish
its divine residents from
the hoipolloi living down
below.
Mountain resorts in
North Carolina, Colorado,
New Hampshire, and the
European Alps provide us
today with much the same
kind of "caste stratification
by altitude."
The higher up the moun-
tain you live, the swankier
you look to those down
below.
Mountain-high, you look
down literally on most of
the rest of the human race
- as you do figuratively if
your social views depend
on an autocratic Weltan-


schauung.
Adolf Hitler had a hide-
away, The Eagle's Nest, on
the tiptop of an Alp near
Berchtesgaden, in southern
Bavaria.
Some summers ago, my
b.w. and I stood on Hitler's
front porch and looked
out across the green roll-
ing landscape of Central
Europe.
Mussolini stood on that
same spot with Der Fiihrer
more than seven decades
ago, as the two insatiable
dictators gazed down from
their aerie and dreamed of
conquest.
Moses brought the Law
down from Sinai's moun-
taintop.
Where else would you
expect to meet God on
state business?
How prosaic it would
seem had Moses brought
the Tablets up from the
Dead Sea the lowest spot
on Earth!
Where are the Tablets
today? Did they ever, in fact,
exist?
Are the Ten Command-
ments really God's Laws?
Could they be pragmatic
rules of behavior concocted
by the wisest minds among
murdering and pillaging
primitive tribes? Did God's
law come from sages who
had observed that the hu-
man family must obey mor-
al laws to survive?
Who today would deny
that we are better off with
the Ten Commandments
than without them?
In the "Sermon on the
Mount," at the beginning
of his ministry, Jesus said,
"Think not that I am come
to destroy the law... I am
come not to destroy, but to
fulfill."
Christ's humanized uni-
versalization of narrower,
harder law brought him an


unending stream of ador-
ers as well as armies of
enemies.
Did Christ himself say
the words attributed to
him?
Was his identifiable
historical figure deemed
"divine" because no human
being could realistically be
that wise, that good?
Or were Christ's words
merely the distillation of
then state-of-the-art hu-
man wisdom?
The Sermon on the
Mount directs us to live to-
gether without destroying
not only each other, but the
good within ourselves.
Many may argue Christ's
divinity, even his exis-
tence. But few will argue
the uplifting code of ethics
delivered on that real or
figurative Mount, whence
the wisdom of the ages was
sung by one human voice.
A mountain is usually a
quiet, remote giant.
But a mountaintop is,
as well, a convenient and
impressive metaphorical
high ground for people
who broadcast words of
wisdom, or folly thatpasses
for wisdom.
No mountain dispenses
either wisdom or folly.
When a mountain de-
cides to speak out loud in
its own voice, it thunders,
"Get out of the way!"
A volcano's eruption is
catastrophic, earsplitting
and meaningless annihila-
tion.
A mountain's pomp-
ous racket and fury signify
nothing save "that's how a
mountain sounds."
Channing's, Emerson's,
Melville's and Thoreau's
transcendentalism unites
common thought in a voice
to move mountains.
Although mountains
may be the most awesome


features on the face of our
planet, a mountain houses
no gods other than those
installed in it by the mind
of man.
When I was a boy in Cen-
tral Florida, the late, great
Kate Smith, a mountain of
a woman in every sense of
the word, used to sing to us
out of our wooden Philco
table-model radio, "When
the moon comes over the
mountain..."
In my young mind's eye
I painted a picturesque
mountain with a full moon
coming up behind it.
Gorgeous, blood-red
Florida moons rose regu-
larly over our shimmering
freshwater lakes, but where
was the "mountain" Kate
kept singing about?
Kate Smith made me feel
cheated in flat, sea-level
Florida, and helped set me
on a lifelong quest toward
mountains and moons
across distant horizons.
Perhaps, millions of
years ago, the Montana
mountain, on whose side
b.w. and I picnicked, was
under an ocean.
In eons to come, erosion
may bring Glacier Park's
tall peaks down to sea level
once again.
The timeless erosion of
mountains instills a sense
of the eternal that contrasts
with the careening tumbles
in our own lives.
Mountains' own majesty
and beauty are invisible
to themselves, but inspire
those who have eyes to
behold them and hearts to
reverence them.
Do we search too far to
find ultimate truth?
Perhaps too often, we
fail to look within.

"Change Is Inevitable,
But You Can Manage It
To Your Advantage."


As an experienced financial
planner, Elizabeth Brothers
understands the importance of
anticipating change and taking
control wherever you can. That's
why she moved to The Mayflower.
"In financial planning, it's
important to know you have some
control over medical costs," she
says. "A continuing care retirement


community like The Mayflower enables
you to do that. But don't wait too
long or you won't be able to enjoy
all the benefits a CCRC has to offer."
If you're looking at retirement
living options, take a look at
The Mayflower. It's a good plan
for the future.
Call today to secure a spot on our
waiting list.
