At Harvest Time International's warehouse, volunteers work around the clock to sort and ship the region's donations to Haiti.

A Sanford charity needs volunteers to ship relief supplies


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Alan Addis has already
sold his home preparing
to move to Haiti. But he
doesn't know when, and he
doesn't know how. Right
now, at 9:30 a.m. inside a
Sanford warehouse the size
of a football field, he's just
doing whatever he can to
help his home away from
home.
"I came here a week and
a half ago, and I haven't re-
ally left," Addis said, stand-
ing inside a warehouse full
of food and supplies bound
for Haiti. It's 55 degrees
outside and he's sweating
through his orange camp
shirt. His gloves look a lit-
tle worn, but in between
grunts while pulling a pal-
let jack he cracks a smile.
"I used to be a paint


contractor in Idaho," he
said. Three years before an
earthquake sent buildings
toppling into the streets
of Port-au-Prince, Addis
already knew his life's call-
ing. He's already ventured
to Haiti three times to help
orphans. Today, he's a vol-
unteer, helping from afar.
Mulling around him in
the warehouse of Harvest
Time International in San-
ford, a few dozen volun-
teers sort bags by the hun-
dreds. Just behind them,
massive shelves tower 30
feet high full of food and
water. It looks like the stor-
age room at the end of
"Raiders of the Lost Ark,"
but all of this could be gone
in days, headed south for
Miami, then onto a ship to
Haiti's battered capital.
Addis is constantly on
the move, just like the large


colony of ant-like work-
ers swarming behind him.
Everybody has a job here,
picking through clothes as
they sort baby sizes from
toddler sizes from kid sizes
from adult sizes, or maybe
figuring out what food is
expired and what isn't.
Halfway across the ware-
house Jason Hall drags a
walk-in freezer-sized box
full of allergy medicine and
puts it next to a pallet of
bandages next to a box of
crutches and a foot brace.
Zipping back and forth
between all this, Lena Smo-
linsky makes sure every-
body knows what they're
doing. Along with her hus-
band Andre, they're coor-
dinating one of the most
massive disaster-aid proj-
ects in Florida. That's on
top of what they already

Moratorium

OK'd

JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

The Maitland City Coun-
cil approved a scaled back
version of the ordinance
that will keep drive-thrus
from being built in the city's
downtown area until an im-
pact study is completed.
The moratorium will be
six months with the maxi-
mum of a four-month ex-
tension, not one year with
an indefinite extension, as it
was originally written.
The motion made by
Councilman Phil Bonus was
approved 4-0. Councilman
Jeff Flowers, who had been
fervently opposed to the
moratorium, was absent.
The 90-day study will de-
termine how drive-thru fa-
cilities, such as banks and
fast food restaurants, will af-
fect the city's planned pedes-
trian-friendly downtown.
Councilwoman Bev Re-
ponen said the study needs
to focus on not just existing
drive-thrus but on particular
streets. "We have to decide
whether we are going to use
(U.S. Highway) 17-92 as a
pedestrian-friendly street or
not," she said.
Planning and Zoning
Commissioner and City
Councilman-elect Howard
Schieferdecker (he is run-
ning unopposed for Flowers'
seat) said the city needs to
be proactive instead of reac-
tive when it comes to design
standards.
"For example, Indepen-
dence Lane should not be

City officials lobby for fed land

Looking to recapture the post office land to expand park, they'll go to Washington


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Winter Park is a step closer
to converting its post of-
fice into more parkland.
The City Commission voted
on a resolution supporting
the plan on Monday, and
on Tuesday, Feb. 2, commis-
sioners will head to Wash-
ington, D.C., to try to lobby
for funding and land for the
project.
The United States Postal


Service Winter Park Office
currently occupies the por-
tion of land just northwest
of the city's Central Park, in-
cluding a distribution cen-
ter.
The Commission has
been in talks for more than a
year about possibly combin-
ing that distribution center
with the one on University
Boulevard and bulldozing
part or all of the post office
to clear land to expand the
park, but had been stalled in


the past.
The estimated $4 million
the city will need to com-
plete the project has yet to
be raised, but the Commis-
sion has pushed the issue
forward anyway. More than
$250,000 has been raised by
private donations, and $1
million was pledged for the
park.
Last week the city got
a push by developer Dan
Bellows, who spoke to the
Commission about a plan


to build a new post office on
West Lyman Avenue. He said
he could do it for $4 million,
if the city acts soon.
"This is the time for
the city of Winter Park to
achieve many of their goals
that were truly unrealistic
five years ago," Bellows told
the Commission. "Now is
the time."
If Bellows were to suc-
ceed in his plan, Central

Knights down, Tars up this week


UCF's conference struggles continue; Rollins leaps to No. 20


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Knights' trouble in con-
ference play continued Sat-
urday as they lost badly to
UTEP, 96-59. The blowout
was one of the worst losses
in UCF basketball history
on their home court. They
dropped to 10-9 overall and
2-3 in the conference.
But the blowout wasn't al-
ways certain in the Knights'
fifth conference game this
season. Halfway into it, they
were only down by 3 as they
headed into the break down
44-41. In the second half,
the Knights collapsed, just
as UTEP picked up the pace,
outscoring the home team


52-18.
That came despite center
Keith Clanton's efforts at
the basket, leading the team
again, with 19 points and
six rebounds. AJ. Rompza
was right behind him with
13 points and six steals in
the game.
The Knights traveled to
Dallas to play SMU at press
time Wednesday, and will
return at 5 p.m. Saturday to
face C-USA foe Tulsa. The
Golden Hurricane is 16-3
overall and undefeated at
5-0 in the conference.
Rollins men's team con-
tinues to rise in the NABC
Division II rankings, with a
12-3 record at the start of
the week.


Their five-game winning
streak has helped leap them
from No. 23 last week to No.
20 this week.
The Tars' most recent tri-
umph Saturday night saw
them beating St. Leo 73-
60. A trio of starting guards
helped the team to a domi-
nating win. Myk Brown led
the way for the Tars with a
19-point performance, but
Julian Wilkison wasn't far
behind with 16 points. Nick
Wolf notched a double-dou-
ble with 14 points and 10
rebounds in the game.
After playing Eckerd in
St. Petersburg during press
time Wednesday, the Tars
return home at 4 p.m. Satur-
day, Jan. 30 to host Lynn.

Isaac Sosa's troubles with consistency may be hurting the Knights' chances
against C-USA foes. The Knights are 2-3 in the conference after a big loss to UTEP.


Wildcats triumph without Rivers

Despite losing a star shooter to an ankle injury, Winter Park's boys basketball team wins 7th straight


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

With district play just a week
and a half away, the Winter
Park boys basketball team


continues to streak toward
the playoffs. They trounced
University 83-52 on Satur-
day night, making for their
seventh win in a row in an
undefeated January.


And they proved they
could do it without Austin
Rivers, who continues to re-
cover from an ankle sprain.
Brett Comer, Robert Lova-
glio and Isaac Turner led the


team in scoring, with Comer
scoring 22 points.
With the win, the Cats' re-
cord improved to 16-4 over-
all and 7-0 in district play.
They played Boone at


press time, but will return to
the court at 7:30 p.m. Friday
night to host Dr. Phillips.

do. At Harvest Time Interna-
tional, disaster mitigation is
all in a day's work. But in the
last week, it's taken on epic
proportions.
"It's been totally crazy
here," she said. "This is defi-
nitely a learning process."
A quick process, too, as
trucks arrive hourly with
more donations. As of 9 a.m.
Thursday the charity had al-
ready sent out four shipping
containers full of goods. By
the end of the week, they
were expecting three more
to be headed south.

having drive-thrus there be-
cause that's going to be our
... main pedestrian traffic
flow," Schieferdecker said.
He said he doesn't think
the new downtown will
come as a $300 million proj-
ect spearheaded by one de-
veloper but that it will be
split up into the hands of
many developers.
"We need to look at de-
sign criteria and try to make
this a cohesive downtown,"
he said.
Maitland resident Dr.
Mark Round said he didn't
think the moratorium is
necessary.
"It's marvelous that we're
going to get information to
help the city grow," Round
said. "Since we can do [the
study] so quickly I really rec-
ommend doing it without
the moratorium."


Some are flying out of
Sanford Orlando Interna-
tional as she speaks, bound
for the overworked airport
in Haiti's capital.
Outside in the parking
lot, Mike Philips checks his
supply of water purifiers -
tiny devices that fit on top
of a water bottle that cre-
ate hydrogen peroxide and
chlorine by the gallon.
"It'll purify 10,000 gal-
lons in an hour," he said.
Tomorrow morning, he'll
be on the ground in Haiti
delivering 100 of the tiny
lifesavers.


Back inside an air-con-
ditioned office next to the
warehouse, Smolinsky talks
to her husband about logis-
tics. Andre, the chief operat-
ing officer of the nonprofit,
sifts through a cluttered
desk looking for numbers.
"We have trucks coming
from everywhere, all over
Florida," he said.
That's when Harvest
Time International comes
into play, sorting through
tons of donations and send-
ing them where they need
to go.
"There's just an enor-


mous volume of donations,"
volunteer Yvonne Cooley
said. She first arrived at the
warehouse yesterday, never
having volunteered to ship
disaster supplies. Today, she
came back again.
"My back hurt yesterday,
but it's fine now," she said.
One day, she said, she too
hopes to go to Haiti to help.
For now, she's sifting diapers
from baby food, happy to be
making a difference.
"I'm here to do whatever
I can," she said. "I'll be here
every day."

WINTER PARK I Developer's plan'won't work'


< continued from the front page

Park would expand by more
than two acres, as opposed
to one acre that would have
been freed up were a previ-
ous post office move green-
lighted by the city. That
would have moved the of-
fice's distribution center to
the intersection of Denning
Drive and Morse Boulevard,
and moved the retail side of
the office to the north end
of the current property.
Bellows' new plan would
free up the entire plot of
land currently occupied by
the post office.
But Commissioner Beth
Dillaha said that plan won't
come to fruition.
"Due to the size of it and
the constraints of it, it just


won't work," Dillaha said. "I
thought it was a great idea
on Dan's part, but it just
wasn't feasible."
Commissioners will fly
to the nation's capital Tues-
day to ask permission to use
the property when the post
office vacates the area or
consolidates its distribution
center with the one on Uni-
versity Boulevard.


Dillaha said she's op-
timistic about the city's
chances.
"The government very
often gives properties to
counties and municipali-
ties," Dillaha said. "The
government gave the naval
training center to Orlando,
and that was a huge area.
This is just two acres."

Few points in our history
have been more important
than this residents being
involved in their local
government.
Bill Randolph, Bev
Reponen and Howard
Schieferdecker have
committed to run for office
in the upcoming March
election. Each has been
involved for years in the
city and has expressed a
desire to continue to be
involved in the years to
come. We owe each of them
a deep debt of gratitude for
their service to the city of
Maitland.
But even though you


may not be involved in city
government, you are still
qualified to serve so long
as you have the passion,
desire and commitment to
Maitland, just like Bill, Bev,
and Howard had when they
decided to take the first
steps to get involved.
Beyond running for City
Council, many positions
will be available in the
coming year that will
provide opportunities for
residents to get involved
in areas that interest them.
Here are just a few of the
upcoming opportunities
on boards you could be
appointed to:

"Should I Convert to a Roth-IRA?"
Sweeping U.S. Tax Law Changes for Roth-IRA beginning Jan 1, 2010
favor doing a Roth-IRA Conversion in 2010 to get additional tax-free
income that can stretch your retirement money further.

SCome to a FREE SEMINAR for answers to questions like these that
could save you thousands in tax-free retirement income...

Bob Adams, President of A SafeHarbor, LLC Educating and assisting
Central Florida's seniors for 20+ years!
A Master Member of Ed Slott's Elite IRA Advisor GroupT

Q. Isn't there a limit on who, or the amount you can convert, to Tax-Free Income?
A. There are NO RESTRICTIONS on the amount you can convert starting in 2010.

Q. I have heard there is an extra-conversion tax you have to pay up front?
A. Contrary to what you've heard, it is NOT EXTRA. This money will be taxed someday.
You can convert and pay the taxes due today or don't convert and pay the taxes in the
future.

Q. But I don't have that extra money lying around right now...
A. Because of the special advantages for converting to 2010, you can skip payments for
up to *2 1/2 years. And only pay 1/2 the amount in two payments.

Q. What happens if income tax rates go up?
A. If you think your personal tax rates are going to go up (and there may be good reason
for that) it is best to convert now while taxes are at their lowest in years.

Q. But I still have to pay taxes on Social Security benefits. I really hate that.
A. Changing to a Roth-IRA can actually reduce or eliminate paying taxes on Social Security
Benefits altogether!

Q. What about the required minimum distributions. Do I still have to take those?
A. When you convert to a Roth-IRA you no longer have to take forced withdrawals. And
can leave them to accumulate for interest that can be income tax-free.

Q. Fact is, I really don't need additional income from those withdrawals.
A. Then you're in luck. You can use the Roth-IRA to grow a large cash reserve (using the
extra tax free interest or earnings) to pass on to your spouse, children and grandchildren
100% income TAX free for generations which will provide for their retirement. Or you can
use the money yourself to pay for any unexpected catastrophic event such as nursing home
costs, etc.

Don't miss this opportunity to learn why you should do a
ROTH-IRA Conversion sooner than later! --
(Later can cost you thousands in tax-free retirement income)
Prepare Now!
Attend the Roth "Taxed to Tax-Free" Seminar.
Attendance is Free!
Seating is limited, so to guarantee seating please reserve early.

*It would be closer to 27 months but only if the conversion was done 1/1/2010.
If conversion was done 2/1/2010 then it would be 26 months. If done 3/1/2010 then 25 months etc.

A UCF student deals with the aftermath I
of a disaster in his homeland of Haiti a a *


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
After the first earthquake
Jan. 12, Pierre Boursiquot
came out of his office in
downtown Port-au-Prince,
a few minutes from the
presidential palace. Every-
thing was covered in dust;
people were crying, praying.
There were dead bodies ev-
erywhere.
He went home and
checked on his immediate
family, and everyone was
fine, but Pierre's brother's
father-in-law died, as well
as their neighbor. Their
home was intact but dam-
aged, and their business was
destroyed.
Pierre's son Jonathan
Boursiquot, a 22-year-old
University of Central Flor-
ida civil engineering stu-
dent, heard the stories over
the phone. Jonathan emi-
grated from Haiti to the U.S.
in 2007, and now, after wit-
nessing two sets of earth-
quakes lay destruction to
the land he loved, he said he
wishes he could go back.
"I wish I could be there
now," Boursiquot said. "I'm
thinking about going back.
Maybe not right now, but
when I'm graduated and
done with everything, I
might go back."
Boursiquot is a member
of the UCF chapter of Engi-
neers Without Borders, and
went with the group just a
few weeks ago to Mare Bri-
gnole, a mountain village in


Haiti. The group installed
water filtration systems and
composting latrines.
"As far as our project, it's
probably more important
now than ever to complete
these projects," said James
Crawford, the immediate
past president of EWB.
While in Haiti just four
days before the first earth-
quake, EWB stayed at the
Mathew 25 House, a hos-
pitality house in Port-au-
Prince. Since the earth-
quakes, the soccer fields
behind the house have been
made into a refugee camp,
and the dinner table where
they ate meals is being used
as an operating table.
As part of their project to
bring clean water to Mare
Brignole, they get their sand
filtration systems from a
nonprofit called Clean Wa-
ter for Haiti. That organiza-
tion's factory has been com-
pletely demolished.
Andrew Ivey, an EWB
member in Haiti just before
the earthquakes, said when
he talked to his contact at
Clean Water for Haiti, he
said they had used their
truck to grab 50 injured
Haitians and bring them to
a nearby hospital. Twenty
died on the trip.
"We do have a number
of Haitian members," Ivey
said about EWB's member-
ship. "Everyone's immedi-
ately family seems OK. Pret-
ty much everyone lost an
uncle or a friend. Everyone
knows several people that

have died. Obviously we're
all pretty upset."
EWB is working on a
number of fundraisers in the
short term to help Health
and Education Relief Orga-
nization, a nonprofit non-
governmental organization
dedicated to Haiti. They
chose that group because
Bruce Goddard, the co-
founder and vice president
of HERO, is EWB's mentor.
Goddard, speaking over
the phone from Atlanta,
said they're currently trying
to get a C-130 airplane to
Jacmel to bring more sup-
plies. HERO currently has


a handful of doctors and
nurses there, flown in from
Fort Lauderdale.
Goddard said he expects
to be involved in Haiti's re-
covery for the rest of his
life.
"This recovery effort is
going to be long-term,"
Goddard said. "It's going to
take years for Haiti to recov-
er. And HERO is going to be
in the recovery process for
the long term."
More than half a dozen
UCF organizations are get-
ting involved in the Haiti re-
lief effort. Volunteer UCF, a
student-run organization, is

Engineers Without Bor-

run for April 18 to benefit
both water purification ef-

that's the average distance
to clean water in develop-

"One thing about all this
is two weeks ago, a lot of
Americans couldn't find
Haiti on the map, and two
weeks from now, the news

GUEST REPORTER

The AP statistics quiz pops
up on Dominique Heron's
calculator, and she goes
to work. Within five min-
utes, she and her class-
mates' scores are tallied and
graphed on the projector.
No this isn't the scene of a
futuristic learning environ-
ment with flying cars buzz-
ing by outside, it's a Winter
Park High School classroom
where the TI-Nspire Naviga-
tor is taking center stage.
These new wireless calcu-
lators are helping students
learn easier and faster, Her-
on said.
"They are like the TI 84
calculators plus a comput-
er," she said.
The TI-Nspire Naviga-
tor is bringing a new way
of learning to a wide range
of math classes across the
nation through a pilot pro-
gram composed of two doz-
en teachers and 3,000 stu-
dents, sponsored by TI.
Participants of the pro-
gram were chosen through
internal recommenda-
tions, and Winter Park High
School math teacher Don-
ald Worcester was one of the
few chosen, Lynn Windle,
Media Relations Manager
of TI Education Technology,
said.
"This is a great pilot to be
a part of," Worcester said.
"And the students just really
love technology, so when
they knew they were like
one of 24 other classrooms
around the United States
they were really excited."
The TI-Nspire Navigator
system works by connect-
ing the TI-Nspire and the

Winter Park High School teacher Donald Worcester shows student Dominique Heron how to use the calculator.


TI-Nspire CAS handhelds
equipped with a wireless
cradle to the teacher's lap-
top and projector, which
gives teachers such as
Worcester an advantage to
getting results of quizzes or
tests instantaneously.
"I can send a quiz, they
can do the quiz, and I can
collect the quiz and look at
a bar graph and all the re-
sults in under five minutes
every day," Worcester said.
"So I can see what kids are
on track, what kids need
help or if I need to restruc-
ture the lesson."
The TI-Nspire not only
helps teachers get responses
quicker, but also functions
as a mini computer by stor-
ing files the teacher sends.
"It's just like a computer
- if I click control-Z it still
does (the function) undo
and I can still do things like
copy and paste," Heron said.


"And when we take tests
on them we can use split
screens so we can have our
question on one side and
use a calculator on the oth-
er side to do all of our work
in."
Heron also said she also
likes that the technology
cuts down on the amount
of paper used in the class-
room.
"It's super environmen-
tally-friendly," she said.
The instruments can be
used outside of math class
as well. Free responses,
true or false, and multiple
choice tests can all be done
on the TI. Although Worces-
ter's class has adapted well
to them, there is no way of
knowing how long it might
take before more class-
rooms have the technology.
"It just depends on the
technology adoption cycle
of the school district," Win-


die said. "But we hope they
adopt them very soon."
"I think they (students)
get more of an understand-
ing of the math we use with
the technology," Worces-
ter said. "They have come a
long way this year."

Full of sound and fury


"... a poor player
That struts and frets his
hour upon the stage
And then is heard no
more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of
sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."
-Shakespeare, "Macbeth"

"OK. This one is right on."
-The Other Lee

"Chris, when you chew up
the messenger, you lose site
of the message. Sometimes
you can be so 'right on' and
then you give us this."
-The Other Lee

I have a genuinely thought-
ful reader, The Other Lee,
who on one hand thinks
I'm spot-on regarding my
lack of faith in religion but
then slaps me upside the
head for my equivalent lack
of faith in Republican val-
ues. He thinks when I ridi-
cule a Republican hypocrite
such as the drug abusing
Rush Limbaugh or charac-
terize Dick Cheney as a hor-
ribly compromised Darth
Vader or question the intel-
lectual bona fides of Sarah
Palin that I'm missing their
heartfelt and sincere mes-
sage of Republican values.
I have one response to
that: "What Republican val-
ues?"
Would my more reflec-
tive (could be tough) Re-
publican readers please
send their ideas into the
paper as "Letters to the
Editor" on what exactly are
Republican values "these"


days? Be specific. List all
your accomplishments dur-
ing the Bush years.
Republican values? Let's
see if I can identify a few
"alleged" Republican val-
ues. I'll place them in order
of "relative" importance. 1.
Low taxes 2. Less govern-
ment 3. Less regulatory
oversight of business 4.
War/terror (Planning for
war, arming for war, actual
war It's a never-ending
circle of planning for war,
arming for... War now. War
tomorrow. Terror forever.)
and, of course, the good ol'
5. Family values
First, let's connect the
disparate yet symbiotic
parts of the Republican uni-
verse. You have the "fiscal"
Republicans and the "fam-
ily value" Republicans. Of
course, both wings of the
Party get behind the War
Now/War Forever dogma
unleashed by Sept. 11. Real
patriots.
Aside: don't-cha just
love it when Republicans
say, "Well, at least President
Bush allowed no attacks on
America during his watch!"
Uh, uh, uh and Sept. 11 hap-
pened when? Under which
administration? I just hate
it when facts get in the way
of one's misconceptions.
My father was a fiscal/
small government Repub-
lican. But those kind of
Republicans simply do not
exist anymore. Really folks,
once upon a time there
were actual Republicans
who believed the nation
should live within its means


but, sigh, alas, we only have
to go back to the last Re-
publican administration to
see exactly how dead such
fiscally responsible Repub-
licanism is. Republicans to-
day fight their forever wars
and never even ask for tax-
es to pay the piper. Imagine
that? Go figure.
Low taxes? Hmmm? I get
the idea of low taxes. I do. I
mean, really, who wants to
pay taxes!? Not only that,
but look at all that the gov-
ernment does that is simply
repugnant: Food stamps
for the poor. Housing sub-
sidies for the impoverished.
Unemployment relief. And
on and on and on. All those
unnecessary, profligate pro-
grams for "less-fortunate"
Americans. You know what
though? All those programs
that Republicans get their
undies all in a knot over
add up to chump change
as compared to their actual
percentage of the overall
federal budget.
Look at what we spend
on military and security?
Staggering amounts. Ob-
scene. Medicare and Med-
icaid. Mind-boggling. Oh,
health care in America and
rationing? I want all the
dipstick-numbskulls out
there who think rationing
isn't going on right now in
America and who are all
aghast over government
health care to understand
that rationing is, indeed, a
fact and it's the for-profit
insurance companies that
are doing it, that are the
administrators. Horrors, if
that task were ever shifted
to government officials.
Taxes? For about 100
years, we have subscribed
to the idea that we have a
progressive tax system (see
16th Amendment). The
more you made, the more
you paid. That has fallen
out of favor. And now, for
all intents and purposes, if
those with more are to pay
less, the economic burden
will be shifted to the vast,
but dwindling middle-class.


Which is distinctly at odds
with the financial interests
of the average "family val-
ue" Republican.
Historically the rich cats
in the Republican Party
don't give two-whits about
the social issues that in-
flame the "family value"
Republicans. Oh, sure, there
is the occasional Fat Cat
Republican who gets all
atwitter over the rights of
the unborn and how every
sperm is scared (or is it,
every egg is sacred?) but by
and large, the fiscal wing
of the Republican Party is
strictly interested in their
pocketbooks and have
deftly manipulated the
"family value" Republicans
into essentially sacrificing
their own economic self
interest in the cause of the
unborn, or the sanctity of
heterosexual marriage,
etc., ad nauseum. Point this
out (who specifically ben-
efits from such and such
economic policy) and the
"family value" Republicans
simply stutter, "Uh, uh, uh...
The unborn! The unborn!"
Small government/
deregulation These are
essentially code words for
eliminating government
agencies that have any re-
sponsible oversight of the
corporate and financial
sectors of the American cul-
ture. It is as if Republicans
think we do not have any
overarching national con-
cerns that are frequently
at odds with corporations.
Clean air, water and land.
Worker's rights? Business
practices (See 2009-10 re-
cession). Any number of a
myriad of legitimate areas
of economic activity that
corporations would, if left
to their own devices, ignore
or subvert. Pure and simple.
We need responsible
government agencies look-
ing out for the interests of
the "average" American.
That's us, kids. History has
demonstrated time and
time again that corporate
interests will subvert public


interests and that they even
have the gall (cojones) to
call their behavior patriotic.
And the "family value" Re-
publicans fall for this non-
sense every time. Suckers
that they are. Dupes. Dopes.
And Dunces.
A word to "family value"
Republicans. The times
they are changin' with all
due respect to Bob Dylan.
Younger Americans simply
do not care about the is-
sues that so ring your bell.
Gay Marriage? If not now?
Soon. You're dinosaurs and
the more astute among you
may grasp just how tenu-
ous your hold is on "moral"
America. Take your family
now and buy those 40 acres
in remote Obscure, Idaho,
and hunker down. When
your kids want to rejoin the
"modern" world, don't be
surprised that they don't
come around so often.
I quoted Shakespeare at
the beginning. This is what
I think of modern day Re-
publicans, Massachusetts
Sen. Scott Brown in par-
ticular. Or, Jim Demint of
South Carolina. Or, Marc
Rubio of South Florida. Or,
that weasel Chuck Grassley
of my beloved Iowa. Or,...
You are "full of sound
and fury, signifying noth-
ing."
And to my faithful read-
er, The Other Lee, until the
Republican Party stands
for something nobler than
their empty-suit, special-
interest rhetoric (and poli-
cies), I'll continue to call
a spade a shovel. They are
"full of sound and fury,
signifying nothing." What
message? That is the Re-
publican Party of America.
Welcome to the club, Sen.
Brown. Welcome to the
Party. Yeeaaah Baby!

Getting the facts on
Hometown Democracy
I appreciated The Observ-
er's Jan. 21 article, "City lays
out goals", in which they
recounted the Winter Park
City Commission's objec-
tives for 2010, and what lies
beyond.
Indeed, a heavy topic of
the event was finances as
Winter Park is not immune
to changing economic
conditions and resultant
declining revenues. Contin-
ued budget constraints will
require discipline in terms
of budgeting, planning, pri-
oritizing and managing the
needs of our residents.
While The Observer
mentioned potential tax
reform measures coming
from Tallahassee as another
threat to revenues, they


then added that a ballot
initiative called Hometown
Democracy or Amendment
4 would "take all zoning de-
cisions out of local govern-
ment's hands and put them
on an annual ballot." While
Hometown Democracy is
not related to tax reform or
budgets, I'd like to correct
The Observer's erroneous
description of the initia-
tive, as amending our state
constitution is very serious
business and voters need
facts, not misinformation.
In depth, accurate informa-
tion about Amendment 4
can be found at www.flori-
dahometowndemocracy.
com.
Hometown Democracy,
Amendment 4, would not
take all zoning decisions
out of local government


hands and put them on the
annual ballot. The initia-
tive does not apply to zon-
ing, rezoning, variances,
subdivision plats, building
permits or development
projects that comply with
an existing Land Use Plan.
Amendment 4 applies only
to proposals that go against
existing city or county Land
Use Plans and are approved,
nonetheless, by local
elected officials. Should a
city or county commission
approve a proposed Land
Use Plan change, residents
would have veto power if
they found those develop-
ments and plan changes
were not appropriate or
in the best interests of the
community.
Every Florida city and
county has a state-mandat-


ed Comprehensive Plan to
manage and plan growth.
Each municipality's Land
Use Plan is a major compo-
nent, designating land use
(such as residential, com-
mercial, industrial or open
space) and density, and
balancing everyone's inter-
est. Land Use Plans ensure
available services (such
as fire and police) and re-
sources (such as water and
sewer) will accommodate
growth. In essence, our
Land Use Plan is the blue-
print for development that
will protect your quality of
life in Winter Park.
It should be no surprise
to anyone that elected of-
ficials, whether at the fed-
eral, state, or local level,
don't always vote in the
public interest. Devel-


opers and special interests
are among the biggest cam-
paign contributors to local
politicians, heavily influ-
encing votes pertaining to
land use.
Hometown Democracy
would seriously dilute the
impact of those political
contributions and would
provide a much-needed
check and balance when
changes to growth manage-
ment plans are contemplat-
ed. If passed, the playing
field between the citizens
and special interests would
be substantially leveled,
and residents would finally
have a say in how their
community grows.

"You are entitled to your own opinions-
you are not entitled to your own facts"
Daniel Patrick Moynihan

How macho do I
love me?
keep changing my ways
to be contemporary.
Arnold Schwarzeneg-
ger was a great moneymak-
er in movies a generation
ago. With Arnold, "ma-
cho" came in to stay and
"wimps" went out the back
door.
A girl who dotes on "ma-
cho" men told me that she
views wimps with utter
scorn. She asked, "Why are
most men I meet these days
wimpy?"
Abe Lincoln might have
answered her, "Well, some-
body up there must like'em,
there are so many of them."
I told her that if her defi-
nition of "wimp" was true, I
don't cotton to people who
are "wimpy" either.
I thought of a lady in
New York who met me, and
asked, "Who is your ana-
lyst?"
"My what?"
"Your shrink."
I told her, I don't have
any" and that "my dentist

takes care of problems I
can't handle by myself."
Celebrated Viennese
wimp leader Sigmund
Freud, who wrote the
Wimp's Manual, left wimps
a legacy of case histories
when and if their minds
ever stray from themselves.
If I were a wimp, I'd tell ev-
eryone I met interested
or not. I'm told that deli-
cious self-effacement is de
rigueur for distinguished
wimpishness. Intense zero-
ing in on oneself is good
hangdog wimpism.
The word "aware" is
fraught with adventure for
Tenderfoot Wimps. "Get-
ting in touch with one's
own feelings" is even more
thrilling, opening up long
narcissistic vistas to those
who wanly aspire to the
rank of Eagle Wimp.
Out of nowhere, the
thought comes to me that I
have never known a wimp
who could sing Verdi or
Puccini. The operas of Puc-
cini and Verdi, whose own
lives were the antitheses of
wimpism, demand unem-
barrassed, naked expres-
sion of strong desires.
Both Puccini and Verdi
dealt with passionate dra-
ma about love, and political
conflict full of violence. The
characters in these musical
dramas make difficult, even
perilous, decisions.
I have the feeling that
wimps have a hard time
identifying with such vis-
ceral stuff. Don't ask me
why. I am simply a battle-
scarred observer of the hu-
man predicament who is
laboring to provide his best
guesses with a higher edu-
cation.
Jane Austen didn't dwell
long on melodramatic
characters of sizzling ro-
mance and stark emotions.
She gave little room in her
novels to people who were
short on genteel gab and


parlor-game-playing. Noth-
ing goes "bang" on Austen's
pages.
Had she written the li-
bretto to Verdi's "Otello,"
she might have had the
Moor whimper "Oh, dear!"
ever so quietly, and then sit
down over tea with Des-
demona for a gentle heart-
to-heart tete-a-tete about
what's-what.
Austen would probably
have subtitled it "Otello: A
Macho's Just Downfall."
Her wimpy Lion of Ven-
ice would have explored
Desdemona's inchoate self-
image.
Was it true that the
child-bride daughter of the
Doge, as Otello was told,
had kinkily satiated her
alleged fantasy-need for
another man? If so, what
was her deep-down inner
motivation, Id-wise?
Otello would, above
all, be calm and attentive.
He would indulge in no
crude, loud raving about
his life's "falling apart."
Here, in Austen's version,
Otello would walk to the
curtain, his back to Desde-
mona, and sing his famous
monologue, as follows:
"I daren't lose my cool. I
must perforce render my
thundrous voice soft as very
lambswool while proffer-
ing my alabaster dove full
understanding most empa-
thetic. Away! And I had no
annoyance in the sinking of
the cursed Turk and all his
monstrous fleet and 'twas
but yesterday.' God forbid I
now founder in this trifling
squall for its guise so alien
to my life's brawny tem-
pest."
You see, by "talking it
out" the civilized way, Aus-
ten's wimpy Otello would
quickly ascertain that Des-
demona had done nothing
wrong, period! End of story.
Where's your opera, Miss
Austen?


Of course, in all honesty,
if Otello had actually been
a wimp, Desdemona would
never have married him.
Wimps, who are perhaps
the worst of men, are of-
ten "best men" but seldom
marry gals like Desdemona,
who have stars in their
eyes for strong, decisive
guys who drink their coffee
"standing up."
Please note: Just because
I am also a great aficionado
of such composers as De-
bussy, Handel, Mozart, or
Faure, don't get the idea
that I am a closet wimp!
Even if you smile mealy-
mouthed all the while in
self-deprecating wimpish-
ness, don't you dare pin
that label on me!
By the same token, I
don't cotton to being called
"macho," even though I ad-
mit to having some of those
super masculine qualities
that daytime radio talk
shows avow are now high
style. It's the labels that I
don't like.
I frankly admit that inas-
much as machos are disin-
clined to spend hours iden-
tifying their real selves to
themselves, my own strong
dislike for such centripetal
goings-on could in itself be
labeled as "haut-macho."
On the other hand, when
I can manage to find my
new glasses, I can sew on a
button niftily with no loss
of masculine self-esteem.
Does that tell you any-
thing about the nature of
the human psyche?
At our house my beauti-
ful wife and I may listen
to Mahler or Haydn while
Brett Favre or one of the
Mannings are romping on
the tube. Doesn't every-
body?
As to b.w., I knew I had to
marry this run-of-the-mill,
garden-variety child the
day I met her. I still don't
know what it was about


her that particularly caught
my attention. Of course,
on that world-shaking day
she did play the French
horn for me. Then she sat
down at the piano and
played the score to "Tan-
nhauser" while I sang. Then
we washed my poodle, and
cooked a nice dinner to-
gether, all the while arguing
about writers and politics.
Afterward, we grabbed a
subway to Yankee Stadium
for a night ballgame. Noth-
ing really out of the ordi-
nary on Day One!
I've admired many ma-
cho guys. Singers such as
John Charles Thomas, Enri-
co Caruso, Ezio Pinza, Jussi
Bjorling, to name just a few.
In other fields, Bobby Jones,
Joe Louis, Jim Thorpe, Mark
Twain, Robert Frost, Ernest
Hemingway, Artur Rubin-
stein, Fritz Kreisler, Charles
de Gaulle and Harry Tru-
man come to mind. Most
of these men were well-
rounded. When they were
asked for courage, they
delivered. They may have
been scared, but they didn't
run. At the same time, most
of these men were able to
be gentle and caring, and
were not embarrassed of
showing tender feelings.
The heralded return to
favor of "macho" hasn't al-
tered my existence.
While I have no reason
to mourn the contempo-
rary Twilight of the Wimps,
I'll fight for their right to
pin the wimp label on
themselves if it makes them
jolly.
As long as I share life
with my zippy Renais-
sance Maiden, just label
me "lucky." Whenever I
do something that pleases
her, whether it takes brains
or brawn, courage or ten-
derness, she says huskily,
"You're quite a man!"
"Croon that by me
again," I say.


LETTERS I Opening road for business could help safety too


< continued from previous page

City needs to help highway
businesses
Your interesting article
on the "visibility struggle"
for NYPD Pizza moving
into the vacant space on
U.S. Highway 17-92 ("New
beginnings", published
Jan. 21) fails to mention
another hurdle they must
overcome.
The city of Maitland has
closed off Ventris Avenue
at Live Oak Street between
Dodges Gas Station and
the Regions Bank, making
it nearly impossible to get
into the new shopping area.
It makes no sense to me.
Opening that street would
allow drivers on 17-92 ac-
cess to the light at Manor
Road rather than having to
cross the very busy highway,
a clear safety issue.
But safety is only one of
the main issues. The other
is to help give good access
to the retail businesses on
17-92 struggling to earn a
living. Out of the four origi-
nal businesses that opened
there in late 2007 or early


2008, two of them have
already given up the ghost:
Rita's Italian Ice and Shane's
Rib Shack. With Steak & Ale,
just a few feet away, also
vacant, why isn't the city
trying harder to encourage
those businesses instead of
putting obstacles in their
path literally!
Good luck to NYPD.
They're fighting an uphill
battle with the city of Mai-
tland.

Candidate has long
service record
Thank you for covering the
Winter Park city commis-
sion races. I did not have
the opportunity to share my
record of service to Winter
Park with your reporter
prior to the Jan. 21 article
("City races shape up") on
the election, and I would
love the opportunity to fill
in a few gaps.
It's true that I served on
the Historic Preservation
Commission, but I have also
served on the Planning &
Zoning Commission, the


Public Art Advisory Board
and the Tree Preservation
Board, having volunteered
on a city board every year
since 1998. I am proud that
my fellow members entrust-
ed me to serve as chairman
on all four of those boards.
If I am chosen by Winter
Park residents to serve as a
city commissioner, I would
be the only landscape ar-
chitect on the Commis-
sion. This means I could
bring the same expertise
designing neighborhoods
and parks that helped me
contribute to the develop-
ment of the Park Avenue
streetscape, the Winter Park
Village and the Park at Or-
win Manor.
Winter Park deserves a
commissioner who knows
what is happening in the
city today, and who has lis-
tened to and worked with
residents regularly for over
a decade. I'm proud that my
candidacy gives them that
choice on March 9.
