Economy

could dip
ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
So what exactly is an echo
bubble?
An echo bubble is a term
economists use to describe
what happens after a bub-
ble bursts. Typically, fran-
tic investors pull out of bad
stocks on their way down,
triggering the burst of the
first bubble.
But then, the stock mar-
ket will rally and usually
fall prey to the exact same
problems that caused the
first bubble. According to an
October Newsweek article
on echo bubbles, commodi-
ties are rising again like they
did in 1999, with a barrel
of crude oil costing $70.21,
compared to $48.33 a year
ago.
Even the banking indus-
try at the root cause of the
first bubble are recording
record profits. Robert Shill-
er, the Yale professor who
successfully predicted the
current economic down-
turn, told Newsweek that
prices on Wall Street are up
because, "We've just gotten
very speculative in our be-
havior, and it's a change that
will likely last. I'm inclined
to say that we're seeing a
new bubble," Shiller said.

Candidates grapple at forum

Different stances apparent on corporate campaign finance, political experience


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
"I find Mr. Lamm and Mrs.
Cooper in agreement I
think I should buy a lot-
tery ticket," Tom McMacken
said, looking across a gath-
ered crowd of hundreds at
the Winter Park's candidate
forum on Thursday, Feb. 4.
The hour-and-a-half po-
litical forum was often punc-
tuated by humor but grew
more contentious near the
end as candidates fought to
differentiate themselves.
But early on, there was a
lot of agreement between
CityCommissioncandidates
Carolyn Cooper and David
Lamm for Seat 3, and Peter
Gottfried and McMacken


for Seat 4, as they dealt more
playful jabs and frequent-
ly parroted each other's
stances on commuter rail,
improving downtown and
campaign spending.
The candidates did have
minor disagreements about
the scope of the commuter
rail project, with some in fa-
vor of a purpose-built Cen-
tral Park station and some
only wanting a simple stop.
"I'm definitely in favor of
having the (commuter rail)
station where one has been
since 1881, thank God,"
Gottfried said.
"Until ridership increases
to a point that warrants a
station, I'm very comfort-
able with a stop in Central

Knights rebound, Tars' streak ends

After dropping three straight, Knights trounce East Carolina; Rollins Tars' eight-game win spree ends


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Knights bounced back
in a big way and Coach Kirk
Speraw grabbed a record as
they trampled East Carolina
67-56 on Feb. 2.
On the tail end of a three-
game conference skid, the
UCF men's basketball team
(11-11, 3-5) was looking for
redemption.
They'd lost big to UTEP,
SMU and Tulsa, by a total
margin of 216-152, with
two of those losses coming
at home.
Big disparities in defen-
sive to offensive rebounds
had eliminated the Knights'
second chances that were
desperately needed in those
games, as the Knights shot
as low as 32 percent from
the floor.


The Knights bounced
back with a vengeance
against East Carolina, as the
team gave Speraw his 275th
win, making him the all-
time winningest basketball
coach in UCF history. He
passed Torchy Clark for the
record.
Helping the team in a
big way, Taylor Young shot
16 points a career high
- and added 6 assists. Isaac
Sosa regained his touch and
picked up 14 points in just
21 minutes on the floor. A.J.
Tyler wasn't far behind with
10 points and 9 rebounds.
Marcus Jordan has added
to his consistency under the
basket, picking up 9 points
against the Pirates while
helping lead his team in
steals with 4.
Conspicuously overshad-
owed on the scoreboard,


A.J. Rompza scored just 5
points, though he picked
up 5 assists and 4 rebounds
in the contest in 31 minutes
on the floor.
Even more out of the
spotlight was Keith Clanton,
the UCF freshman phenom
who had taken a regular role
as the team's leading scorer
in recent games. He picked
up 2 points on free throws
while missing five shots. In
a previous loss to Tulsa, he
had scored 17 points and
picked up 6 rebounds.
Wednesday night at press
time the Knights faced pe-
rennial Conference-USA
contender Memphis on the
Tigers' home court. They
were facing Memphis for
the first time this season.
At 4 p.m. Saturday the
Knights return to their
home court in their first


matchup against Tulane
this season. The Green Wave
is near the bottom of C-USA
with a 7-15 overall and 2-7
conference record just
behind the Knights.
Rollins basketball
The Rollins Tars had their
8-game winning streak
snapped Saturday night, as
they faced Florida South-
ern in Lakeland. The 90-69
trouncing came as unex-
pected for the Tars, who had
beaten the Moccasins 91-88
on Jan. 9.
The stunning loss left
the formerly streaking Tars
at 17-4 overall and 8-2 in
the conference. Nick Wolf
pulled a double double in
the game with 17 points
and 10 rebounds, leading
his team in both categories.
After traveling to Barry at
press time Wednesday, the

The Knights are back after a strong 67-

Tars return home at 4 p.m.
Saturday against Tampa.
The last time the Tars faced
Tampa Jan. 16 they
trounced them 72-55.


Wildcats attack district play

After extending their win streak to 12 games, Winter Park's boys basketball team enters districts


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
It's district time for Winter
Park's boys basketball team,
which is carrying a 12-
game winning streak into
the playoffs. Coming off big
wins against Olympia and
Pine Crest in their last week
of the regular season, the
Wildcats are poised to take


their district by storm.
With an undefeated re-
cord against teams that
would factor into their post-
season picture, the Wildcats
have one of their strongest
seasons ever so far. They're
21-4 overall and 8-0 in the
district heading into district
championship play.
Thanks to district sched-
uling, the Cats' first game


against East River, played
Tuesday night at press time,
had the potential to be one
of their easiest. The only
other time the Cats played
the Falcons, they won one
of the biggest blowouts in
team history 80-28.
On the other end of the
District 6A-4 ladder, Edge-
water (22-3, 6-1) looks to be
the top contender to reach


the championship game on
Saturday. That could mean
two state-ranked teams bat-
tling it out for the top spot
in the district, and better
dibs on games in the region-
al championship.
In that potential match-
up, the Cats have a big edge
over the Eagles. In the two
teams' only meeting this
year on Jan. 6, the Cats


trounced the Eagles 59-38,
holding them to single digit
scoring in the first and last
quarter. And they did it on
Edgewater's home court,
where they'll be for the du-
ration of the district tourna-
ment.
Saturday night at 7 p.m.
the Wildcats will know their
fate.

DEBATE I Cooper, Lamm assail each other's past


< continued from the front page

Park, and bringing people,
not cars, to downtown and
Central Park," McMacken
said.
Cooper said she'd prefer a
station at Denning Drive, to
hopefully avoid adding ex-
tra traffic she said was flow-
ing to and from Oviedo.
Lamm was more direct
with his support of com-
muter rail in downtown.
"I unequivocally support
having the rail station," he
said.
All of the candidates
were thrown a curveball
when asked how they felt
about corporate campaign
contributions, a hot button
issue after a recent contro-
versial U.S. Supreme Court
ruling upholding the legal-
ity of corporations funding
campaign advertisements
for specific candidates.
"I agree with the Supreme
Court decision," McMack-
en said. "I don't know how
that trickles down to Win-
ter Park. You're allowed to
contribute to the candidate
of your choice. What I like is
it is limited to $500, and it's
very transparent."


"I think contributions
are free speech," Gottfried
said. "If corporations want
to give, great. If unions want
to give, great. If individuals
want to give, great."
"At this time I feel the
system we have now makes
sense," Lamm said. "It's rea-
sonable. It has caps."
All candidates agreed that
campaign spending is out of
control, as they decried hav-
ing to spend what Gottfried
and McMacken estimated at
$50,000 to win a campaign
in Winter Park.
Cooper took a strong
stance against the idea
of corporate donations,
though she admitted that
she would accept them.
"I don't feel that it's a
good idea to have anony-
mous donations," she said.
"When LLCs donate, you
don't really know who's do-
nating. They're not required
to have some sort of disclo-
sure. If I could have my way
with the world, we would all
be responsible and account-
able for every vote we made
and would stand without an
anonymous front. I would
be more comfortable with
one heartbeat, one vote."


Though the final ex-
changes between Got-
tfried and McMacken were
largely civil, with Gottfried
touting his experience and
McMacken pointing to his
more recent political expe-
rience, Cooper and Lamm
both accused each other of
misrepresenting themselves
in their campaigns.
"The actions of my op-
ponent are quite different
in the past than what you've
heard tonight," Lamm said
of Cooper during closing
comments. "We're tired of
'no' and 'can't'. We should
be in the business of 'can'
and 'do.'"
Cooper closed by accus-
ing Lamm of allowing the
contentious Carlisle devel-
opment to nearly be built
in downtown Winter Park
in 2007, which the city paid
developers to stop after a
public outcry against it.
"What we had to pay for
... were decisions that gave
very special privileges to a
select group of people," she
said. "My opponent was the
head of the Planning and
Zoning Board at the time.
My opponent voted for the
Carlisle."

BUBBLE I We're not out of the woods yet when it comes to stabilizing markets


< continued from the front page

So, assuming that anoth-
er echo bubble is about to
burst on Wall Street, what
does that mean for the East
Orlando area? To under-
stand the local impact, you
have to understand how
an echo bubble could hurt
the economy on a national
level.
Sean Snaith, the direc-
tor of the UCF Institute for
Economic Competitiveness,
said there could be some
truth to the echo bubble.
"After the collapse of a
bubble, there's this scram-
bling and shuffling of port-
folios that's taking place,"
Snaith said. "As investors
reassemble or get their wits


about them, some of that
money starts coming back
into the market. That may
be the genesis of these echo
bubbles."
Snaith said that when
bubbles form, they form
around irrational behav-
ior and thoughts like the
idea that housing prices
will continue to rise forever.
When they burst, investors,
like a manic depressive, go
into an irrational depres-
sion, fixated that the world
is coming to an end.
That may mean that the
market dipped to an unnat-
ural low, and many of the
gains investors have seen
- the stock market break-
ing 10,000 but getting stuck
there could be a result of


that. But if there's another
bubble about to burst, that
could hurt.
In short, we're not out of
the woods and on the way
to stable economic ground
yet.
"If we continue to see
stock markets retrench,
that's going to feed back
into the economy with
weak spending from the
consumer," Snaith said. "We
don't need anything that
will further weaken con-
sumer spending or further
hamper recovery."
The current bubble that
burst and nearly sent the
U.S. economy into a second
Great Depression started
with the real estate market.
As home prices continued


to boom, banks bundled
securities backed by mort-
gages.
But, as more and more
homeowners began to de-
fault on their payments, the
balance sheets of banks be-
gan to rise to unacceptable
levels. Many of those banks
were bailed out by the gov-
ernment because it was de-
cided that, if they failed, it
would be a systemic failure
that would wreak global
havoc.
The bottom line is the
real estate market was at
the heart of the trouble.
Steve Moreira, the president
of the Orlando Regional
Realtors Association, said
that even if a second bubble
happens, he doesn't think


it'll hurt the local market.
"Do we think if the stock
market takes a dip, we'll see
a second real estate crash? I
don't know where it would
really go," Moreira said. "It's
as low as it can go. We're be-
low replacement value right
now. You can't build it for
what you can buy it for."
Moreira said that, at this
point, the real estate market
is operating independently
of the stock market. He said
it would work both ways.
"I think it stays steady
no matter what the stock
market does," Moreira said.
"And even if the stock mar-
ket goes to the moon, you're
not going to have the over-
exuberance in this market
for a long time."

2010 Brings New Roth IRA Conversion Opportunities
Since the Roth IRA was first introduced, there have been rules in place that pro-
hibited those with annual incomes above $100,000 to convert traditional IRAs to
Roth IRAs. However, former President Bush signed a law in 2006 modifying the
original rules which allows these individuals to convert their Roth IRAs start-
ing in 2010. In addition, those who perform a Roth IRA conversion in 2010 will
receive an extra tax advantage.
When a traditional IRA is converted to a Roth IRA, the accountholder will be
taxed at ordinary income rates on the amount converted. So if a $50,000 tradi-
tional IRA is converted in the same tax year, the taxpayer will be taxed on an
additional $50,000 of ordinary income. However, for conversions that take place
in 2010 only, the IRS is allowing the taxes to be spread out over two years rather
than having to be fully paid in 2010. This is great news for those that cannot
afford to pay the taxes all at once, but there is a caveat. If tax rates rise in 2011,
which just about everyone expects, the total amount that will have been paid
over the two-year period will be greater than if the taxes were paid in the same
year.
Let's look at a few examples:

Example 1
Let's say you have a traditional IRA that you've funded with $20,000 of pre-tax
contributions over the last 10 years and the current balance is $26,000. If you
convert the full value of this account in 2010 and elect to spread the tax over two
years, you'll pay tax on $13,000 in 2010 and another $13,000 in 2011.

Example 2
As another example, let's assume you have a traditional IRA that's been funded
with after-tax contributions because you weren't eligible for a deduction due to
income limits. In total you've contributed $30,000 to the account and it's worth
$37,000 currently, so there's an unrealized gain of $7,000. Since you've already
been taxed on the $30,000 of contributions made, you would only be taxed on
the $7,000 gain when you convert.
While it may be exciting to now have the opportunity to convert your traditional
IRA without an income restriction, keep in mind Roth IRAs are not necessarily
right for everyone. For example, if you expect to be in a lower tax bracket in
retirement than you are today, converting to a Roth IRA may not make sense.
That being said, there are also plenty of advantages with the Roth IRA as well.
For example, unlike a traditional IRA, there are no required minimum distribu-
tions starting at age 70 1V. Since everyone's situation is unique, should you like
to review your personal options please do not hesitate to contact my office at
407-644-6646.

Each year, the city of
Maitland gathers to
celebrate the many
accomplishments of the
volunteers who devote
countless hours of service
throughout the year. It
is through their efforts
that the city of Maitland
is able to provide quality
service and projects to our
residents.
On Tuesday evening, we
took the opportunity to
applaud the efforts of all
who serve passionately and
selflessly, giving back to
their community in every
way.
This year we have
selected two recipients
who have dedicated much
of their lives to their
community in so many
different ways.


Elizabeth
Schneider-Peele
Elizabeth has been a
resident of the city of
Maitland since 1980.
She has served multiple
terms on the Parks and
Recreation Advisory
Board as a member and
chairwoman, and helped
the Board chart a course of
action that has diligently
moved the city toward
fulfilling the Parks and
Recreation Master Plan.
She is truly
extraordinary, with an
MBA from Rollins and
Nova Southeastern, and is a
successful businesswoman
who finds time to serve
the community on various
boards, such as the
Transportation Advisory
Board, as Secretary of the


New Hope for Kids Board
of Directors, and as a
volunteer language teacher
for the Orange County
Public Schools Additions
program.
Her work in the
community includes
significant involvement
in the approval of
the SunRail station
design, contributions
to the transportation
concurrency exception
area for the Community
Redevelopment Agency
and the development
of functional street
classification evaluations
and red-light running
ordinances.
Her husband, John,
and daughter Allison
can be proud of her
accomplishments and
the fact that even though
she serves in a seemingly
endless list of roles that
she has also found the time
to establish and develop a
collect, neuter and release
program for hundreds of
domestic animals.
It is only fitting that this
multilingual volunteer
heads a company that
welcomes thousands of
visitors to the Central
Florida area annually. She
is not only an ambassador
for the Central Florida


region, but every day her
work, devotion and caring
makes her an exemplary
ambassador for the city of
Maitland.

Cindi Price
Cindi Price is a native of
Central Florida and became
a resident of the city of
Maitland in 1998. She has
served multiple terms as a
member, vice chairwoman,
and chairwoman of the
Parks and Recreation
Advisory Board, and as a
result has participated in
numerous subcommittees
focusing attention on
developing a Parks and
Recreation Foundation and
numerous athletic program
issues, and has worked
diligently on improving the
Minnehaha Park property.
In addition to her
service in that capacity,
she has also served as a
representative on the
Orange County Civic
Facilities Authority, the
Personnel Advisory
Board, the Orange County
Neighborhood Grants
Advisory Board and
most recently has served
as chairwoman of the
Maitland Connectivity Task
Force.
A champion of park
development in the


Maitland Center section
of the city, she has worked
diligently to foster progress
in fulfilling the dream
embodied in the Parks and
Recreation Master Plan in
bringing to reality a new
west-side park.
Working tirelessly to
discover and implement
connections for runners,
pedestrians and cyclists
throughout the city, her
contribution in helping
bring to reality a system
of safe byways is a passion
that never rests.
Cindi graduated from
the University of North
Colorado and with all the
time and energy spent on
city-related efforts, still
finds time for her husband,
Steve, and son Chad, who
can be very proud of all that
Cindi has accomplished.
It is mainly through the
efforts of volunteers like
Elizabeth and Cindi that
the city of Maitland is able
to accomplish so much
over time.
My heartfelt thanks
go out to all of our city's
volunteers who give so
much of themselves and
their time, who expect
nothing more than the
satisfaction of knowing
that "Maitland is Moving
Forward."

The silent Knight Frances Millican


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
In 1971, an Orlando Sen-
tinel photographer left a
black-and-white photo of
Charles Millican for the pa-
per's front page without
telling anyone who the oth-
er two people in the photo
were.
Reporter Roger Pynn
found Millican's number in
the phone book and called
him. Pynn tried to describe
the picture over the phone,
but Millican said it would be
best to just bring the photo
over.
When he knocked on
the door, he was greeted by
Frances Millican and the
beautiful aroma of a bakery.
Later, Charles identified
the people in the photo and
Pynn stood up to leave.
Then Charles asked him
if he takes milk, coffee or
tea with his cookies. Fran-
ces had baked sugar cook-
ies coincidentally, one of
Pynn's favorites when she
heard he was coming over.
"Out came Frances with
a great big tray of cook-
ies," Pynn said. "I didn't re-
alize my life was going to
change."
Pynn told Millican that he


was planning on going back
to school and finishing his
degree, but he didn't know
when. Millican gave him a
phone number to call, and
even though the applica-
tion window had closed for
Florida Technological Uni-
versity, Pynn found himself
in school two weeks later.
It's been 30 years since
that encounter, and now
Pynn is a founding member
of Curley and Pynn, a Mait-
land public relations firm,
and one of dozens of people
who credit the Millicans
with their success.
"I have been impacted in
ways I can't even describe
by those two people," Pynn
said. "There's no question in
my mind that if that night
hadn't happened, my life
would be different. And it's
not just because I went back
to school. ... I could've just
gotten the photo ID and
left. But because of Frances,
my life changed."
Frances Millican, 82, died
Dec. 28 from injuries result-
ing from a fall at her home.
Charles Millican, the found-
er and first president of
Florida Technological Uni-
versity now the Universi-
ty of Central Florida gave
the eulogy at the service in


the Pegasus Ballroom on
campus.
Friends and those close
to Charles said it was im-
portant for Frances' role
with the university to be
acknowledged and remem-
bered.
"Frances has been the
most supportive person I
could have expected to find
in a wife," Charles said in a
2008 interview with Ob-
server Newspapers. "In the
early years, we didn't have
very much and I had to
work a lot. There was never
a time that she complained
about how much I could
not be with her or do things
that other people do. Not
one single time, and that is
unbelievable."
Frances founded the UCF
Women's Club, which is now
a philanthropic organiza-
tion that gives scholarships
to non-traditional female
students, and the Town &
Gown group, whose mem-
bers act as ambassadors for
the university in the com-
munity.
Maggie LeClair, an assis-
tant to the dean in the Col-
lege of Sciences and close
friend, said Frances was
known as the Silent Knight
for all the behind-the-

age 80. The Millicans were married for 64 years and helped found UCF programs.


scenes work she did.
LeClair recalled an out-
ing with Frances a few years
ago. When they dropped her
off at home a little past 11
p.m., Charles Millican came
sauntering out of the garage
to greet them.
They asked him what he
was still doing up.
"He said 'Well, I didn't


want to go to bed until my
little girl gets home,'" Le-
Clair said. "She was 80 years
old. That's the kind of rela-
tionship they had, and they
walked back into the house
together."

"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.
Come 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 Group'"

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"
RESCHEDULED 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 pair of art festivals and


a pair of Hamlets


ArtsFest Be a romantic
superman for free!
Orlando's arts organiza-
tions are providing the per-
fect way for any would-be

(Sunday, Feb. 14), ArtsFest
2010 is a massive celebra-
tion of the arts which offers
more than 200 completely
free arts events. All you do

A pair of art festivals
The arts come in pairs for
February with not one, but
two art festivals scheduled
over the next two week-
ends. The first is the 43rd
Annual Osceola Art Festival
(Feb. 13-14) to be held on
the campus of Valencia Col-
lege in Kissimmee, and the
second is the Sixth Annual
Orlando Downtown Art &
Living Expo (Feb. 20-21)
on the east side of Lake
Eola Park in downtown
Orlando. Both festivals are
free and offer cash prizes to
the winning artists. Say "hi"
when you see me at the fes-
tivals I'll be 'not-so-anon-
ymously' judging the art.

Valentine's weekend at the
Osceola Art Festival
Feb. 13-14 represents the
second year this event is
scheduled on Valencia's
Osceola Campus in Kissim-
mee. More than 140 artists
from as far away as England
will display works, compet-


ing for more than $15,000
in prizes. The festival will
also feature a student art
tent, a sidewalk chalk con-
test, and arts and crafts for
the youngsters. An addition
to the 2010 show is Local's
Lane, dedicated to galler-
ies and artists from Central
Florida. The festival runs
from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on
Saturday, Feb. 13 and from
10 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Sun-
day, Feb. 14. Valencia's Os-
ceola Campus is located on
U.S. Hwy. 192, one mile east
of Orange Blossom Trail.
Parking and admission are
free. Call 407-846-6257 or
visit Ocfta.com.

Sixth Annual Orlando
Downtown Art & Living Expo
Beginning on the brick-
paved street along Lake
Eola Park in Orlando, the
Downtown Art & Living
Expo will take place from
11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday
and Sunday, Feb. 20-21.
Featuring more than 120
artist booths, this expo
is always alive with mu-
sic concerts, food, street
performers, face painting,
balloon magic and more.
The Orlando Museum of
Art will be on-hand to of-
fer free art activities for the
whole family. Families are
invited to bring lawn chairs
to enjoy the entertainment
headliners Larry Hoppen
of Orleans and Jimi Jami-
son, formerly of "Survivor",
with the hits "Eye of the
Tiger", "High on You", and
"I Can't hold Back." Visit
www.downtownorlando-
properties.com for more
information.


A pair of Hamlets!
In a coincidence of tim-
ing that I guarantee will
happen only once in our
lifetimes, the Orlando
Shakespeare Theater is
presenting "Hamlet" at the
same time that the Mad
Cow Theatre (downtown
Orlando) is presenting
"Rosencrantz and Guilden-
stern Are Dead" (R&G) by
Tom Stoppard.

'Hamlet' at Orlando Shakes
Not only is "Hamlet" argu-
ably Shakespeare's greatest
play, it is also his longest
and most powerful work.
Its influence on English
drama cannot be overes-
timated. During Shake-
speare's lifetime, the play
was one of his most popu-
lar works, and still ranks
among the most-performed
of Shakespeare's works.
Written around 1600, the
play deals with murder,
revenge, suicide, madness,
incest, corruption, the most
dysfunctional family since
Oedipus, and a few minor
characters called Rosen-
crantz and Guildenstern
(who help move the nasty
plot along). Orlando Shakes
will present "Hamlet" with
Avery Clark in the title role.
Performances are sched-
uled through March 13 at
812 E. Rollins St. in Loch
Haven Park in Orlando. For
ticketing call 407-447-1700
or visit orlandoshakes.org.

'Rosencrantz and
Guildenstern are Dead'
at Mad Cow Theatre
Being a part of the audience


for R&G is like being back-
stage during a performance
of "Hamlet". Rosencrantz
and Guildenstern may be
minor characters in "Ham-
let", but they are the main
characters in this award-
winning play that offers
us a 'backstage' version of
"Hamlet" that is profound,
witty, philosophically exis-
tential, and very, very funny.
The play's title is taken
from a quote from the final
scene of "Hamlet" and in-
troduced playwright Tom
Stoppard's skewed imagi-
nation and amazing skill
with words when the play
first opened at the 1966 Ed-
inburgh Festival in England.
The play, which went on to
win four Tony Awards (in-
cluding best play) follows
the duo's unlikely journey
as they get caught up in the
murderous intrigues of the
Danish court and we all
know how that turned out.
The production features
real-life friends Michael
Marinaccio as Rosencrantz
and Tim Williams as Guil-
denstern and runs through
Sunday, Feb. 28 at the Mad
Cow Theatre, 105 S. Mag-
nolia Ave. in downtown
Orlando. For Tickets, call
407-297-8788 or visit mad-
cowtheatre.com

Meditations on stuff


Meditations on stuff


"Twice as much
Ain't twice as good."
-John Mayer in "Gravity"

I kid you not, there are peo-
ple out there working away
with the job title of "Com-
pulsive Hoarding Expert." I,
too, am an expert, a profes-
sional in such matters.
I have figured out one of
the genuine blessings for
having children. You can
giv'um stuff furniture,
books, art. Stuff! My daugh-
ter has been the recipient
of untold stuff. Chairs and
couches. Bookcases. Books.
Dishes. Art. My wife once
upon a time, in a pique, un-
loaded an incredible assort-
ment of stuff that even yet
today I'll see in my daugh-
ter's home and go, "Damn,
when did I give you that?"
Hah! Hah! We laugh. Hmm?
I joke, I jest, Josie.
My middle child, too, has
received load after load of
dishes, lamps and furniture
but he has not yet acquired
the ability to hold onto it.
My youngest child with his
girlfriend will be return-
ing from NYC to Central
Florida in the fall, and I am
already putting together
piles of "stuff' required for
establishing a household. I
set aside five "Coke" chairs
that were common in soda


shops of the 1920s; I was
with my mother when she
purchased them in South
Sioux City, Neb. in 1959 for
$5 a piece. They've been
with me 40 years. Lots of
memories. Time to go.
I unloaded this past
Super Bowl night one of
two "jury panel" chairs I
acquired god only knows
where. I gave my daugh-
ter one, to the son goes
the other. But I am only
scratching the surface.
Don't ask to see my closets.
I am one of "those!" You
know, them! I'm just short
of the stereotype of the guy
who opens his closet door
and is immediately buried
under a cascading ava-
lanche of stuff. I am sooo
embarrassed. Actually, I am
not. You know why? Cuz
my crap is all neatly boxed
and labeled. It would never
"fall" out of the closet.
Like that makes a differ-
ence. I come by my "acqui-
sition skills" naturally. My
father was the type of man
who saved stuff. I've seen
him recycle nails pulled
out of a demolished build-
ing. A coffee can full of
bent, pulled nails in a few
minutes would be skill-
fully hammered straight on
concrete and tossed back
in the can and put on the


back shelf ready, decades
later, for that one special
occasion requiring such
nails. Oh, he saved a nickel,
maybe a dime.
After my parents di-
vorced in 1970 (28 years of
marital bliss, well, at times.)
all brakes were removed
from Dad's inhibitions at
collecting. The house me-
thodically filled up with
stuff acquired at estate and
yard sales. He took tables
and stacked them on top
of each other, three high in
the dining room and then
filled them all up with glass
objects that when the light
was right no doubt filled his
heart with delight.
My bedroom, which
consisted of two rooms,
actually became the lamp
repository. Lamps on the
sleeping porch and shades
in the other. Floor to ceil-
ing. Among his children it
became "a" running joke on
how "Dad had cornered the
Sioux City market for used
lamps." I have absolutely
no idea why he devoted so
much space to used lamps.
Yes, I do. For a buck. My
Father, a retired corporate
lawyer, ran a "flea market"
out of the basement. He'd
buy something for a buck,
clean it, fix it, cosmetically
alter it and sell it for $3.
Such finances floated his
boat. Mentally speaking.
Lamps, however, were not a
high-demand object. When
he died, they ended up
dumped. Sigh. He did, how-
ever, make "good" money
on the rest of it. Incredibly
so.
My tastes are "too so-
phisticated" for the likes
of what excited my father.
Yes, sirreee, Bob! What he
did was for the joy of turn-
ing a profit on a relative


piece of junk. Although,
over the years the dining
room slowly filled up with
"quality" stuff, that when
he died, fetched thousands.
Only his more "valued" flea
market customers, a mere
handful, ever got to see
the sacred, inner-sanctum
dining room display. They
immediately showed up at
his death to "first dibs" the
remains of his stuff.
Yes, I have stuff from
when I was a teenager,
acquired and prized and
nearly all of it boxed. But
it's been the last 40 years
that I have consistently ac-
quired stuff. I love knicky-
knacks. I do. Little objets
d'art. One-of-kind antiques.
One-off college senior art
projects. Beautiful stuff.
Ceramics. Pottery up the
ying-yang. Countless art
fair acquisitions. Paintings.
Framed paintings. Paintings
unframed and in folios sur-
rounded by acid free paper.
Stuff!
You see something that
makes you laugh or is genu-
inely beautiful and unique
and if there is sufficient jin-
gle in your pocket, you buy
it. But as the decades pass
and if you're not acquir-
ing the homes necessary to
display all your acquisitions
(an advantage of "real"
wealth), priority of space
becomes the issue.
I was recently at the Gal-
lery on First in Sanford and
saw a beautiful little object
for $X. I could afford it. I
wanted it. I did. I longed
for it. But where do I put
it? Besides, I have boxed
away "stuff' of equal or su-
perior beauty that hasn't
seen the light of day for a
decade. But what have you
done for me lately? Art that
once moved me may not


so much inspire me today
as one's tastes constantly
change and evolve. And
isn't that great.
Upgrades. A couch you
had in your 20s may make
you shudder in your 60s.
Hopefully, not too much.
But life to a certain extent
is about upgrades. Just look
at what we now own (re-
quire?) for televisions. Or,
stereo systems. Our posses-
sions are no different. And
into the boxes go our old
choices, the acquisitions
of our youth, the had-to-
owns of a different day. I
highly prize one-offs. I have
sufficient vanity to own/
possess that which no one
else does. And, you know
what? Into the boxes it
goes. Stacked like so much
cordwood in my closets
and garage. Burn me on it,
children.
Nah, I'm on a tear to
clean it all out. Books. I un-
loaded about 3,000 books
in the late 70s in Columbia,
Miss. I did it again, un-
loaded books, a decade ago,
and I am going to condense
all my books down to two
large bookcases. Going, go-
ing, gone!
And over the next year,
my closets (and garage)
will, well, I will actually
again see the corners. Of
the ceiling, at least. Hah!
And to my children,
thanks! For handling all my
bull and for taking my stuff.
Or, is that "veecha-versa," as
they say.

Letter tothe Editor


Credit score damage control
Although not as unique as
fingerprints or snowflakes,
credit scores are highly
individualized and of-
ten mysterious. Many fac-
tors determine your score,
which can change over-
night depending on every-
thing from last month's
credit card balances, to
opening a new account, to
applying for a car loan.
To help demystify and
quantify how credit
scores are determined,
FICO recently shared infor-
mation on the impact cer-
tain negative actions can
have. For those not as ob-
sessive about credit scores
as I am, FICO is the com-
pany whose proprietary
software is used by major
credit bureaus to calculate
the credit scores they sell to


potential lenders as a tool
for determining your cred-
itworthiness.
But as FICO's Public Re-
lations Director Craig Watts
noted, the very uniqueness
of each person's individual
situation makes it diffi-
cult to generalize. "Take
two people with excellent
FICO scores of 780," he ex-
plained. "One might have
a mortgage, several low-
balance credit cards and a
20-year credit history; the
other has a dozen open ac-
counts, hefty student loan
balances and a car loan, but
no mortgage. Same score,
very different circumstanc-
es."
What they probably have
in common, said Watts,
are a history of on-time
payments, a low ratio of
outstanding debt to avail-
able credit, and a cautious


attitude toward taking
on more debt that, and
no major negative credit
activity: "If you have late
payments over 30 days, re-
ceive a tax lien, or file for
bankruptcy, the toll on your
credit score can be signifi-
cant and long-lasting."
With the caveat that ac-
tual point losses can vary
widely depending on your
individual situation, FICO
did share broad ranges for
two hypothetical scenarios:
One person has a 680 score
and the other 780, and each
has a mortgage, car and stu-
dent loans and several cred-
it cards. They differ over
factors such as amount of
credit limit used, late pay-
ment record and length of
credit history. Overall:
Exceeding a credit card
limit might lower scores by
10 to 45 points.


A single late payment
exceeding 30 days 60 to
110 points
Entering a debt settle-
ment agreement with a
creditor 45 to 105 points
Losing property to fore-
closure 85 to 160 points
Filing for bankruptcy
has the most devastating
impact anywhere from
130 to 240 points in the
scenarios given.
Surprisingly, people with
good-to-excellent credit
scores often lose more
points for negative inci-
dents than do those with
lower initial scores. Watts
explains that's because
lower initial scores already
reflect riskier behavior; not
so for high-scoring people,
so the appearance of nega-
tive credit activity on their
otherwise spotless credit
records may drop their


credit scores farther.
The main reason to be
concerned about signifi-
cant point drops is that fall-
ing into a lower credit cat-
egory could hamper your
ability to qualify for a loan
or credit card or receive
lower credit limits, as well
as greatly increase interest
rates you're charged.

Conservative commentary

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

I'm lovable -
so love me!
Lots of people who are
real hotshots when it
comes to amore may
know no more than we
amateurs know about the
patron saint of lovers. But
few people would send a
card saying, "Be my martyr."
After all, the guy behind all
the "to-do" every Feb. 14
was a third-century Chris-
tian martyr, a Roman citi-
zen named Valentine.
Valentine was done in
for his unpopular beliefs
in A.D. 269, and was later
canonized. The day that
we call Saint Valentine's
Day seems hardly an ap-
propriate remembrance for
a religious martyr. Pagan
deities Eros and Amor were
classical Greek and Roman

symbols of romantic love.
The bridge to the Christian
St. Valentine is tenuous. The
body-mind-soul trinity that
constitutes the boy-girl re-
lationship called "true love"
should be more than the
love hyped by Cupid.
To love, honor and cher-
ish (obey?) are all too often
promised without reflec-
tion upon their profound
implications. Societal expe-
rience shows that all three
of these verbs must be put
to daily use, lest a marriage
lead to unhappiness, even
dissolution.
Speaking from a man's
point of view, I would en-
dorse the statement, "A
man doesn't really really
know a woman until he
is married to her." And no
happily married man needs
to know any other woman
the way he knows his wife.
There have been women
relatives whom I loved duti-
fully as long as I could hold
out. Through the years I
said to myself, "Thank God
I'm not married to such
as her." There's ample evi-
dence that their husbands
may have shared my assess-
ment.
Those men who stuck it
out to the bitter end may
have been modern-day St.
Valentines.
In the song "They Can't
Take That Away From Me,"
Fred Astaire sang glibly and
charmingly of "the rocky
road to love." After living
more than four score years,
I don't think it's the road to
love that's so rocky. It's after
you've reached where the
road has led you that the
rocks hit the fan.


Once in love, you don't
make good sense anymore
- if you ever did in the first
place.
If you're worried about
giving yourself to someone
else, first make sure you're
a gift worth having. You
may radiate agape love
toward all humanity. But
you're kidding yourself if
you think you'll settle for
nothing in return from the
one person with whom
you're in love. If you take
exception to the above, you
may put "Saint" before your
name. Or you may be think-
ing of another name for
yourself. Is it "sucker"?
Having to listen to some-
one's reporting the happy
intimate details of his love
life can test the sturdiest
friendship.
Shakespeare knew that
it's easier to sustain interest
in tragedy than in comedy.
This is why Pollyannaish
stories screech to a halt
with, "They lived happily
ever after." Someone else's
happiness may be the gos-
pel truth, but please don't
bore us with it.
But spare us your ec-
static details of how boffo
it was in Niagara Falls
with what's-her-name in a
room-with-a-view.
Many of us are glued to
the TV news every night.
When is it good news?
I have a few forgettable
downers in my own lim-
ited past experience with
females. I might admit I'm
not 100 percent convinced
that men and women are
ordained as logical sharers
of the same living quar-
ters. Let me add a personal


credo: "If two people don't
love each other, no man-
sion is big enough. If they
love each other, no apart-
ment is too small."
For many years I sang
operas based on love sto-
ries. My roles got me in-
volved in affairs with all
kinds of women, from Mimi
to Aida, Juliet to Carmen.
Lots of highly dramatic
stuff happened while I
romanced these fictional
dames. But an opera's end-
ing was hardly ever happy.
Would it help Bizet's opera
if Carmen and Don Jose
patched things up and rode
off into a rosy enchilada?
Would you like it if Mimi
coughed on and on after
the curtain without benefit
of Medicare or an HMO,
and Rodolfo had to go out
and get a real job instead of
cranking out his lousy po-
etry? Tragedy works.
Except in real life, that is.
Surely you could have a
worse existence than a life-
long happy love affair. But
don't write a book about it.
No one will read it.
There's no way to be sure
about the ends of adven-
tures. There's no insurance
policy on high Cs.
And there's no predict-
ing the outcome of the
boy-girl thing that involves
24 hours a day and thou-
sands of dawns and sunsets.
Somebody said, "I'd rather
be lucky than smart." You
can get smarter But how do
you get luckier?
Vince Lombardi said,
"You make your own luck."
Oversimplified, maybe, but
essentially true. We can
produce a climate in which


good things are likely to
happen to us. Giving with-
out expecting anything in
return seems to help create
this positive climate. Sec-
ond effort does too.
But even these goodies
guarantee nothing. Open-
ing the Bible removes us
from the street-talk of
"Guys and Dolls." We learn
the Biblical word "grace."
It ain't "Luck be a lady
tonight."
It's "Grace be a lady to-
night!"
A happy ending in life is
not part of the bargain. It
depends on something you
cannot hope to deserve.
Happiness is an inexplica-
ble gift. It's luck. It's grace!
It's great!
I heard a lovely blond
girl sing a recital 31 years
ago in New York. I never
met anyone quite like her
in all my travels. Her name
is Joy, and she is my joy.
She has the sweetest
nature I've ever known in
any human being. She is
talented. She is smart. She
is enthusiastic. She is en-
ergetic. She is affectionate.
She is educated. She is ro-
mantic. She is adventurous.
She is forgiving. She is prac-
tical. She is funny. She is the
friend I can count on. She's
quite a woman, quite a lady,
quite a wife.
This month we've been
married 30 years. Do I de-
serve her?
Of course not.
Friend, do you want me
to get what I deserve? She's
the Joy of my life. She's my
Valentine every day of the
year.
Amazing grace!
