Charter Amendment 10 would require a supermajority vote (four of five commissioners) to change the comprehensive plan.


Brossier wants to share

Maitland may bring in additional developers for project


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF
In his plea to Maitland City
Council to keep the Town
Center agreement intact,
developer Bob Reese said
he's open to bringing in ad-
ditional developers to help
bring it to fruition.
"Why throw five years
and millions of dollars
down the toilet?" Reese said
before Council.
A crucial block of the
project land the former
Winn-Dixie parcel and the
adjacent Royal Plaza is
scheduled to be sold at auc-
tion on March 26 unless Re-
ese can come up with $8.2
million he owes Mercantile
Bank.
This Feb. 10 foreclosure
judgment led the Maitland
Planning and Zoning Com-


mission to unanimous-
ly vote that the Council
consider terminating the
agreement with Reese. But
Council sided with Reese
3-2 at Monday's meeting,
with Council members Phil
Bonus and Bev Reponen
dissenting.
Reese seemed to change
his tune, saying he was open
to sharing control of the
project with a joint venture
partner or partners. Com-
munity Redevelopment
Director Verl Emrick said
city staff has met with five
development teams in the
past month who were in-
terested in the project.
Commissioner Phil Bo-
nus said that keeping the
development agreement
intact is keeping the city
from exploring its options
with other developers. "It


used to be there isn't any-
body else, but actually now
there is anybody else out
there," he said.
But Reese said a canceled
agreement would actu-
ally be an impediment, re-
quiring the city start from
square one.
"If somebody else thinks
they can make a better
downtown, let's bring him
on, let's joint-venture it,"
Reese said.
Another aspect that
could hold the city back is
if Reese and Brossier Co. file
for bankruptcy to forestall
the foreclosure auction.
City Attorney Cliff Shepa-
rd said Mercantile's legal
counsel thinks Reese will
pursue bankruptcy on the
eve of the March 26 sale.

Here's what some Winter
Park residents think of
Amendment 10:


"It doesn't make sense
to me that two people
can vote against a rule
that had already been
imposed by the majority
who voted on that rule."
-Molly Traynham, 25


"1 know the majority
wins, but I believe the
minority should have
a voice and be able to
voice their opinion."
-Yaniv Haramaty, 38


"It seems like a relatively
good thing in terms of
requiring more consen-
sus to be built in order
to pass something as
important as changes to
land use."

Chartered relief


At the Orlando Executive Airport,
Stratos helps get relief into Haiti


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
When the earthquake hit
Haiti on Jan. 12, leaving a
million homeless, 300,000
injured and as many as
230,000 dead, Thompson
Reuters news agency want-
ed to get into Haiti.
So they called Winter
Park-based Stratos Jet Char-
ters, which was able to get
the four-man news crew
and their satellite gear to the
Dominican Republic while
they waited for the Port-au-
Prince airport to reopen.
"They were the first news
crew to be on location," said
Snowden S. Hernandez-
Burckhart, Stratos' director
of sales. "We did that again
for another news agency -
two flights within a day and
a half."
In addition to Reuters
and NBC, Stratos was able
to get a Lutheran church or-
ganization into Haiti, who
brought with them eight
40-foot-long containers
filled with medical equip-
ment, tents, bottled water
and other relief supplies.
"It's amazing what
they've [the church] been
doing with this effort," said
Mark Bergau, Stratos em-
ployee. "They had so much


stuff, they were putting it in
storage."
It's not what you would
call routine for the compa-
ny, which generally charters
flights for businesses. On
Feb. 10, for example, they
flew a man from Altlanta to
Hartford, Conn., for a meet-
ing and then from Hartford
to Cleveland and back again
to Atlanta all in the same
day.
But weather, specifically
inclement weather, has al-
ways played a factor in their
business, said Joel Thomas,
Stratos' president. When
weather in the Northeast
U.S. gets bad, they charter
people from New York to
Florida, and they've helped
a family in Galveston, Texas,
avoid a hurricane that de-
stroyed their home.
But Haiti was a different
story.
"We saw a need for it im-
mediately," Thomas said,
speaking over the sound of
departing planes at the ex-
ecutive airport. "We knew
with the disaster there were
a ton of people interested
in helping out and what-
not.... We've definitely been
around for these disaster
flights, hurricanes, earth-
quakes."

Joel Thomas, president of Stratos, right, poses at their office at the Orlando Executive Airport. Their planes flew to Haiti.


Still, chartering a flight
to Haiti isn't cheap. It cost
Reuters about $15,500 to
get to the Dominican Re-
public and another $9,000
to shuttle them to Port-au-
Prince. And then things got
more expensive when they
restricted the time a plane
can be on the ground in the
Port-au-Prince airport.
That means that who-
ever's flying in has to pay
for the plane's return flight,
and the plane has to be big
enough and carry sufficient
fuel to get to Haiti from an-
other island.

Lee Strickland of Winter Park, missing for five
weeks since the Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake in Hai-
ti, has been recovered from the Hotel Montana.
Strickland, a transportation engineer with PBS&J,
was in Haiti representing the firm at a two-day
workshop.
As PBS&J Orlando transportation planning
group manager, Strickland possessed a diverse
skill set that encompassed all phases of trans-
portation planning and design, a true accom-
plishment for his profession, according to long-
time co-worker and friend, Sue Gratch.
Strickland, 46, was active at PBS&J in a va-
riety of other roles including leading the United
Way annual fund drive several years in a row. He
even met his wife, Jean, when they both worked
at PBS&J.
Strickland was a fitness fanatic; he had com-
pleted a half-marathon at Disney just before his
trip to Haiti. More than just participating, he also
encouraged everyone around him to get involved,
creating a training team and helping others
achieve their fitness goals. A 1988 graduate of
the University of Florida, Strickland had a pas-
sion for all things Gator, regularly attending home
football games and traveling to away games.
Strickland's dedication extended to his church,
which included volunteering as a Sunday school
teacher.


Strickland is survived by his wife, Jean, and
11-year-old daughter Kailey. The family's church
has created a special account through SunTrust
Bank to assist Strickland's family. Contributions
can be made payable to the Lee Strickland Fund
at any SunTrust Bank location.
A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Sat-
urday, March 6 at First Baptist Church of Winter
Park, 1021 N. New York Ave.


"You don't see a lot of
churches buying charter
flights," Thomas said of the
Lutheran church, which
paid full price for its Haiti
trip.
Thomas said he founded
Stratos to glorify God. He
said he wants to bring integ-
rity to an industry where he
sees flaws.
"There's a lot of agents
in this industry that are de-
ceptive, dishonest," Thomas
said. "All they care about is
making money. They'll put
them on a piston prop (a
type of plane) with a guy


that has 50 hours of flight
time. They don't care; they
just want to get the money.
"That's not our reputa-
tion; that's not what we
want," Thomas said.

Developer protects parking lot

Hannibal Square developer Dan Bellows is concerned about losing parking spots for shopping district


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
A Winter Park developer
said he's worried that park-
ing space for the Hannibal
Square shopping and din-
ing district could disappear
if he sells a nearby parking
lot to the city.
Development and re-
strictions on it once again
dominated Monday's City
Commission meeting, with
developer Dan Bellows and
a spokesperson speaking
for more than 10 minutes
about concerns that the city
could be restricting their
projects.
At the meeting Bellows
expressed fears that the city
might try to re-appropri-
ate a parking lot that feeds
Hannibal Square for other
uses, effectively eliminating
more than 60 parking spac-
es for the area and possibly
cutting into business.
He said that in order
to sell the lot to the city, it
would have to remain a lot.
"That's the only reason
I'd sell it for half price or a
third of the price," Bellows
said.


Development Director
Jeff Briggs said that the city
is looking into his concerns,
but that the city might need
to use the lot, at least on a
temporary basis, for other
needs.
"We're concerned that
we might want to use it for
things other than parking,"
Briggs said. That could in-
clude weekend festivals or
even installing utilities.
Later in the meeting
when arguing that her cli-
ent should be allowed more
C2 zoning in the city, Bel-
lows' attorney, Becky Vose,
accused some residents and
board members of conspir-
ing to restrict the city's com-
prehensive plan and land
development code.
"Mr. Bellows' projects
have been targeted by a
small but vocal cabal of anti-
development of extremists
throughout the creation of
the current comprehensive
plan and the land develop-
ment code," she said. "Let's
not mince words. This is an
antidevelopment land de-
velopment code."
That choice of words
aroused the ire of Commis-


sioner Phil Anderson, who
chided Vose at the podium.
"Those types of insults
aren't really permitted," An-
derson said.
The Commission voted
3-2 to pass the amended
land development code.

Parks department hopes
to revive finances
The city's revamp of the golf
pro shop and its merchan-
dising may already be pay-
ing off, according to parks
director John Holland. He
discussed a strategic plan
for the parks division of the
city to try to improve the
city's aesthetics and its rev-
enues at the same time.
He said he's trying to
avoid creating or increas-
ing fees for use of facilities
in the city, so that more resi-
dents can use them without
being priced out of the rec-
reation department.
At the golf shop, a turn-
around may already be im-
minent, he said.
"We are seeing an increase
in merchandise sales," Hol-
land said. "And the hot dogs
are moving really well."

The Winter Park City Commission parried questions about its land development
code at Monday's meeting, including accusations that they were restricting projects.

Rivers leads Wildcats in rout

Winter Park star catches fire and buries 20 points in less than 8 minutes to propel his team to victory


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
For four straight quarters
there was seemingly noth-
ing Winter Springs could do
to stop Austin Rivers. The
Winter Park boys basketball
star went into overdrive un-
der the Bears' arena lights,
burying 41 points into the
net on the way to the Wild-
cats' wild 83-60 blowout in
the regional quarterfinal.
"I just get in zones some-
times and everything keeps
going in," Rivers said of his
stellar performance.
On Tuesday night at press
time, the Wildcats faced a
rematch with Edgewater to
see if they'd advance to the
final round of regional play.
They had plenty of mo-
mentum heading into the
regional semifinal after
their big win over the Bears.
Winter Springs had entered
the regional tournament af-
ter a district championship
and hungry for more.
Winter Park was fresh off

a devastating loss to Edge-
water in the district tourna-
ment.
Thursday night Rivers
turned it on, mixing aggres-
sive playwith aerial gymnas-
tics to bamboozle defenders
for most of the game. Only
in the first few minutes of


the game was he off-tempo.
Once he hit a hot streak, he
lit up the net for the rest of
the night.
In the most prolific eight
minutes of his high school
career, the Wildcats' star
dropped 20 points into the
net as he propelled his team


forward with a momentum
that wouldn't break until
the end of the game.
At one point in the third
quarter, the Wildcats were
up by 26 points, though
their scoring would tem-
porarily wane as the Bears
managed to close the gap


to 14. But that's as close as
they would ever come in the
second half.
The Wildcats' Adam
Jones hit all of his shots on
the way to 13 points, and
picked up 12 rebounds in
the contest to help his team
to the big win.


Knights down, Tars rebound


UCF's only conference win streak snapped; Rollins wins fourth straight nearing conference playoffs


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
A brief flirtation with a win-
ning streak ended quickly
for the Knights on Satur-
day night, as they fell to
Southern Miss 68-58. The
loss ended the Knights only
conference-winning streak
of the year at 2 games.
The Knights (13-13, 5-7)
were actually ahead in the
game at the half, with a sub-
stantial 31-22 lead. But they
collapsed in the second half,
as the Golden Eagles (16-10,
6-6) blew through their de-
fense with 46 points while
the Knights languished be-
hind, picking up 27.
In the first half of the
game, the Knights hit 63.2
percent of their shots, in-


cluding 57.1 percent of
their 3-pointers. But in the
second half, they fell apart,
hitting only 1 of 7 from out-
side the arc.
Despite a lackluster sec-
ond half, the Knights shot
better than they have since
starting conference play, at
52.9 percent. But that didn't
help them outgun the Gold-
en Eagles, who had more
shot opportunities and cap-
italized on better rebound-
ing to seal the win.
Isaac Sosa returned to
his role as the Knights' top
gun, coming off the bench
to shoot 14 points in 26
minutes on the floor. Two
of his teammates trailed
close behind, with AJ. Tyler
picking up 13 points and 5


rebounds, and Marcus Jor-
dan hitting 12 points and
picking up 4 rebounds and
3 assists.
Despite playing nearly
the full game, AJ. Rompza
only picked up 2 points, but
added 4 assists.
Wednesday night at press
time they faced UAB at
home. Saturday night they
travel to Marshall.

Rollins Tars
The Rollins mens basketball
team (21-4, 12-2) is streak-
ing again with four straight
wins. Their most recent
came on a 70-64 spread over
St. Leo on Saturday night.
They held onto their No. 18
ranking with the win, near
the highest they've been all

season.
Five Tars shot in the dou-
ble digits in the win, with
Ryan Ferranti leading the
way with 14 points. Nick
Wolf picked up 11 points


and 12 rebounds in yet an-
other double-double per-
formance.
At 4 p.m. Saturday they
host Eckerd College to close
out the regular season.

SUPER I City expects more proposals to change comprehensive plan in the future


< continued from the front page

Amendment 10 would
require a supermajority
vote four out of the five
commissioners to any
comprehensive plan text
amendment.
Winter Park residents will
have the chance to vote on
Amendment 10 and other
charter amendments in the
March 9 election.
"The sentiment was it
(Amendment 10) was bad
governance," said Chris
Gardner, the chairman of
the Winter Park Chamber of
Commerce's Board of Direc-
tors, after the meeting. "We
felt like it was a challenge
to good governance, and
we felt like we had a hard
enough time gaining con-
sensus for a simple majority
that a supermajority would
just allow the minority to
control the agenda."
It started last year when
the city's charter basical-
ly, its constitution was put


under the microscope by
a bipartisan citizen group.
They reviewed 12 proposed
changes, but only recom-
mended the City Commis-
sion move forward with the
11 that got consensus from
the committee.
Out of 12 amendments,
the only one that didn't get
the committee's nod was
Amendment 10. But the City
Commission in early Febru-
ary passed an ordinance
3-2 that would require four
votes to change future land-
use code.
Gene Randall, one of the
seven citizens appointed to
the Charter Review Com-
mittee, said the opposition
to Amendment 10 is com-
ing from the building com-
munity.
"This is a very political
issue," Randall said. "Text
changes are global. If you
make a text change in the
land development code, it
affects everyone in that el-
ement. We're not talking


about minor changes here.
We're talking about global
changes, big changes."
Commissioner Beth Dil-
laha, an ardent supporter
of Amendment 10, echoed
Randall's sentiments. She
said the idea came down
the pipeline after Tom Pel-
ham, the secretary of the
Department of Community
Affairs, proposed a Citizen's
Planning Bill of Rights.
She said she wasn't sur-
prised to hear that the
chamber was coming out
against the amendment.
"The city of Winter Park,
the physical character of
this community is what cre-
ates value and makes it a very
unique and desirable place
to live and have a business,"
Dillaha said. "Any change to
our land-use policy should
not be taken lightly."
Patrick Chapin, the presi-
dent of the Winter Park
Chamber of Commerce,
said he expects the board to
come out in opposition to


Amendment 10.
"It's going to create
more obstacles in changing
the comprehensive plan,"
Chapin said. "We will be lim-
ited in our ability to attract
and also keep businesses.
... Unless we start growing
our commercial base, the
burden of taxes is going to
fall on it already falls on
- the residents of Winter
Park. You have to spread the
tax revenue."
The chamber isn't the
only group taking aim at the
amendment. All through-
out the city are red lawn
signs that read "Vote No on
Amendment 10: Superma-
jority = minority rule = bad
idea."
The signs were bought
and paid for by the Vote No
on Amendment 10 Political
Action Committee, which
has raised $5,200 to con-
vince people to vote against
the change, and spent about
$2,800.
Jeff Briggs, the planning


director of Winter Park,
said from 1991 to 2009, the
city only had one request
to amend the text of the
comprehensive plan, the
Sun Trust building across
from City Hall. But, he said,
people shouldn't judge that
track record because the
city adopted a much more
specific comprehensive
plan last year.
Take, for example, Winter
Park Towers, which asked
the city to change the text
of the comprehensive plan
just two months ago (a re-
quest that was granted by a
4-1 vote).
"It would be expected
to be a lot more frequent,"
Briggs said. "You can't nec-
essarily go with the track
record because it's a whole
new document.... Obvious-
ly, that's what this is about:
Whether the minority of
two can dictate policy."


BROSSIER I City could get snagged in possible Brossier bankruptcy filing


< continued from the front page

ruptcy everything else ceas-
es, including the ability to
terminate the agreement,
until the court says you
could do it," Shepard said.
The city is a party to the
suit because the land is tied
to the development agree-


ment, and it could cost the
city $5,000 to $10,000 to get
out of bankruptcy court, he
said.
Rev. John Butler Book
said there's no market for
the downtown and the city
should terminate the agree-
ment while it still can. "To tie
up city in the short run with


bankruptcy makes about
as much sense as putting a
milk pail under a bull," he
said.
Planning and Zoning
Commission Chairman
John Lowndes echoed
Book's sentiment. "To tie
up the city's property when
we're moving ahead with


the city hall and the fire sta-
tion means no chance for
anybody to partner with
city to make this block a
nice block," he said.
The vote was taken on
Council with almost no dis-
cussion of staff, resident and
Reese's comments.
After the item failed, May-


or Doug Kinson had only
this to say:
"We heard good testimo-
ny tonight, and I'm very en-
couraged that something is
going to happen in the next
30 days."

Maitland City Talk
BY DOUGLAS T. KINSON
Fs MAYOR


Families enjoy opening day


This past Saturday, Maitland
Little League brought
families together for one
of the most enjoyable and
energetic events during
the course of the year -
Maitland Little League
Opening Day.
The day started bright
and early with the
traditional parade that
began at Maitland Middle
School and continued
through our Dommerich
neighborhoods, along
Horatio, through
downtown, along Sandspur
Road and ending at the
Maitland Ballfield Complex
on Keller Road. I was
honored to participate
in the Mayor's "pace" car
along with my daughter
Kaley and her friend Lizzy.
They will admit we did so
much waving, our arms


tired from the activity.
And with the sirens and
flashing lights of the fire
trucks and police cruisers
to the many trucks, limos
and boats decked out with
children and trimmings,
this event was one that will
be remembered!
Once at the complex, all
enjoyed hamburgers and
hot dogs cooked perfectly
once again by the Maitland
Men's Club. A special
addition this year was the
pizza provided by the new
kids on the block NYPD
Pizza. In tough economic
times, it is a pleasure to
attend a family event with
so much food, fun and
games without having to
worry about money!
Maitland Little League
has a long tradition in
our community and has


provided guidance and
direction for our children
both on and off the field for
more than 46 years. Each
and every year, Maitland
Little League serves nearly
400 players, hosts more
than 600 games, and is
recognized as one of the
area's leading programs.
The past few years have
been special for me as
girls softball has become
an integral part of the day
for many more families
involved in Little League.
Just a few years ago, softball
held their own opening
day and parade, and now
all of our families enjoy
the festivities of the day
together.
Maitland Little League is
a non-profit, all-volunteer
organization that exists
for the benefit of our
children such that our
coaches may teach them
teamwork, sportsmanship,
fair play and most of all,
how to enjoy the game. For
generations, Little League
has taught our children
honesty, courage, loyalty
and respect. A child's dream
of becoming a superstar
pales in comparison to the
life lessons learned on the
baseball field.
Little League Opening


Day is a great opportunity
to connect with families.
I met with parents
concerned about parks and
fields, schools, as well as
the issues of the day facing
Maitland's City Council.
Besides going door-to-door
during a campaign, there
is no better way to connect
to a community than being
a part of Little League's
Opening Day!
JeffJakes said it best
when he gave his opening
remarks reminding us
about how Little League
is just one step on a long
journey of dedication to
family values that last a
lifetime. He could not have
been more in touch with
the example that Little
League offers our families.
The city of Maitland is

WATER METER CHANGE
OUT
City of Winter Park water
utility customers will
have their water meters
changed out to Smart
Meters as part of the city's
automatic meter reading
(AMR) program. In July
2009, the city embarked
on its AMR program
conversion that began
with phase I converting
all the electric meters to
Smart Meters. Now almost
complete with Phase I, the
city is beginning phase II -
replacing all water meters
with new Smart Meters.
This conversion to Smart
Meters translates into
the following customer
benefits:
Increased privacy
-Meters will be read
and bills will be generated
without having a
representative visit your
property on a regular basis.
-Meter can be checked
remotely to ensure it is
working properly.
-Prompt response
-Enhances city's ability
to respond promptly to


meter service requests
as the customer base
continues to grow.
-Early leak detection
-The city will be able to
use software reporting to
detect possible leaks and
notify the customer.
Environmentally
friendly
-The number of vehicles
on the road will be reduced
therefore, reducing
pollution and traffic while
saving fuel.
-The water meters will
be changed out with the
new Smart Meters by Triton
Water Technologies, the
city's contracted utility
representatives. It is
not necessary for utility
customers to be home for
the installation of the new
Smart Meter. Please be
advised that there may be
some trapped air or slight
discoloration in the water
line. It is recommended to
run the water 2-3 minutes
until the water runs clear.
It is normal to hear noise
as the air exits spigots and
fixtures.
For additional
information or questions
regarding the city's AMR
program, please call
Customer Service at 407-
599-3220.

Web site at www.

with Maitland Little League

CITY CHARTER AMENDMENT #10
SUPER MAJORITY VOTE TO
CHANGE TEXT OF FUTURE
LAND USE ELEMENT OF
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN
Shall Section 2.1 l(b) of the Charter be amended to add a subsection
10 which will provide that any change to the objectives, goals or
policies in the Future Land Use Element of the Comprehensive Plan
may be made only by an affirmative vote in support of such change by
a minium of four votes of Commission Members who are physically
present at the meeting when the vote is taken.

FJ Yes

ZNo
Explanation: When a majority (3) of our elected commissioners vote
to change our city's master plan (the Comprehensive Plan), two (2)
of the commissioners (representing the minority opinion) can
override the vote. There are five people on the City Commission.
If this referendum passes, any two of them will control what
happens to our city's master plan.

This is not a "super" majority:
it gives control to the minority.
Bad idea.


Don't give a minority of the city commission
control over our master plan.


Vote NO on #10.

More than 40 people packed the community room in the Winter Park Library to watch Rollins students' documentaries on homelessness on Jan. 27. More than 4,000 children were homeless in the Orlando area in 2009.

Rollins College students' documentaries raise awareness of homelessness in Central Florida


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
Thousands of bottle caps
littered nearly every inch of
the ground at the entrance
of the homeless encamp-
ment, a subtle warning to in-
truders. On a piece of ripped
cardboard was a scrawled
message: Keep out.
"At first I was nervous,"
said Nikki Salazar, a Rollins
College student and film-
maker.
Salazar and her partner
on the project, Katie Hub-
bell, had to sign a liability
waiver before entering the
camp with a local home-
less assistance organization,
HOPE Team, since the camp
can be a dangerous place.
The two students spent
their fall semester making
the documentary about the
HOPE Team and their work
with the homeless for a so-
cial justice documentary
class.
More than 40 people
filled a community room in
the Winter Park library on
Jan. 27 to watch the three
documentaries made by
students in the class.
Once inside the camp,
Salazar, Hubbell and Nan-
cy Martinez, a HOPE team
leader, discovered a group
of tents in the woods. Bright
blue plastic tarps, protectors
from rain and sun, popped
against the dull greens of
the scrawny Florida forest.
Stacks of bottles of water,
rescued chairs, and a make-
shift kitchen and bathroom
rounded out the improvised
home. While the surround-
ings were unfamiliar a far
cry from the beautiful Roll-


ins campus the faces were
welcoming.
"Some were standoffish,
but a lot of the people were
interested in saying their
piece; it seemed like they
were waiting for an oppor-
tunity to tell their story,"
Salazar said.
One story that touched
Salazar the most was told
by a woman named Candy.
They spent more than an
hour talking to her, and
Salazar and Hubbell were
nearly brought to tears
when Candy spoke of what
Martinez and the rest of the
HOPE Team meant to her. In
the documentary Candy and
Martinez hug, while Candy
wipes tears from her face.
Salazar said meeting Candy
was a learning experience.
"She was so thankful and
honest about how she end-
ed up in this situation," Sala-
zar said.
While talking to the peo-
ple was an experience Sala-
zar valued, it was also the
most difficult part of mak-
ing the documentary, she
said.
"The hardest part was
talking to them and looking
into their eyes and listen-
ing to how they spoke, and
how they felt there was no
way out, and accepted that
that's the way their life was
going to be."
For many in Central
Florida, this life is a reality.
The Homeless Services Net-
work of Central Florida es-
timated that 9,887 people
were homeless at one time
in Central Florida in 2009.
And the homeless popula-
tion doesn't just include
men HSN estimated that
from January to May 2009,


4,206 homeless children
had attended schools in the
region. This year's count was
done on Jan. 27 and results
will be released later in the
year.
Larry Mclaren, a man con-
quering the statistics, spoke
at the library meeting about
his experience being home-
less and the importance of
documentaries like this.
"I wish America could
see this video because it's
a problem and it's increas-
ing," Mclaren said.
Susan Salinger, the stu-
dents' professor, hopes to
inspire the students to keep
telling stories of injustice
so that they create a public
discourse and spark change.
These stories of homeless-
ness were a start she said
she's proud of.
"We were able to put a
face on one of the biggest
social issues we have," she
said.
"I hope people learn from
it and it interests them to
the point that they will go
out and make a difference,"
said Salazar. "I'll be happy if
it just hits one person."

Studies have shown that children who do not have a home computer are at a disadvantage in school. A local nonprofit collects used computers for children in need.


Gift from God Computer Foundation supplies needy kids with used computers

CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Giving away 1,000 to 1,500 donated and
refurbished computers every year, the
Gift from God Computer Foundation
is heaven sent to deliver computers to
needy children in Central Florida.
Over the past five years, this non-
profit organization has worked with
local churches, charities and schools
to see to it that children of any age can
succeed in the classroom and in life.
Cindy Rosarius, co-founder with her
husband, Paul, said that the reason for
starting the organization was "to close S
the digital divide" some students with-
out home computers were facing.
"Technology is the key to commu-
nication now," she said. "Kids have to
have computers at home to be success-
ful in the classroom because virtually
everything is done on them.... Without
computers kids can fall behind. How
can they compete with students that al-
ready have the technology?"
Computers received by the organiza-
tion are wiped clean of all the previous
owners' usage and restored with a li-
censed operating system and common
programs, such as Microsoft Office, be-
fore reaching their new owners.
The computers are refurbished with-
in the organization solely by volun-
teers with computer backgrounds and
students receiving academic credit for
their services.
The organization has partnered with
several programs, including a University NAURAL
of Central Florida business class, South EX WOOL
Seminole Middle School seventh-grad-
ers and students participating in the S
Bright Futures Scholarship program, to
not only help with the restoration of the
computers, but with fundraising too.
The organization, which first started
out as a group trip to Africa to donate
computers to children suffering from
AIDS, now combs its own backyard in New location in Seminole Towne Mall
search of those in need.

COMPUTER I Oviedo-based nonprofit will host a fundraising gala on March 28


< continued from the page All

Beth Davalos, coordina-
tor of Families in Transition
for Seminole County Public
Schools, said the five-year
partnership with Gift from
God has been incredible
and life-changing for hun-
dreds of homeless children
struggling in school.


"Students are constantly
given assignments to do on
the computers," she said.
"In our efforts and Gift from
God's efforts we're trying to
level the playing field in the
classroom where the stan-
dard is to have a computer."
Already this year, Gift
from God Computers has
donated 168 computers to
them with many more to


come, Davalos said.
With 300 computers on
hand and about 200 already
given out this year, Rosarius
said she is hopeful for not
only more computer dona-
tions from individuals and
corporations, but also for fi-
nancial donations that will
largely cover rent and refur-
bishing costs.
Gerry Myers, executive


director, said the unfortu-
nate decrease in computer
donations can be attribut-
ed to the tough economic
times, where people are
holding on to them longer
and selling them instead of
donating.
So in need of funds and
computers to further their
mission, the organization
looks forward to its annual


fundraiser, the Computers
for Kids Gala on March 28.
Despite the organiza-
tion's short time in the
community, Rosarius said
she hopes they have made
an impact.
"My husband hopes we
inspire a child that receives
a computer to become pres-
ident one day," she said.

Music, a play about

music and music


Opera series opens with
'Carmen'!
The Orlando Philharmonic
has picked up the gauntlet
left behind when the Or-
lando Opera ceased opera-
tions a year ago. But opera
- with all its love, death
and beautiful music is alive
and well as the Orlando
Philharmonic presents
"Carmen", the first opera in
its Concert Opera series on
Friday, Feb. 26 at 8 p.m. and
Sunday, Feb. 28 at 2 p.m. at
the Bob Carr in downtown
Orlando. Directed by Alan
Bruun, the production fea-
tures Kirstin Chavez as Car-


men and Richard Troxell as
Don Jose.
As this is a "concert ver-
sion", Music Director Chris-
topher Wilkins describes
the experience by saying,
"The production will be
visually stunning, includ-
ing the way in which the
orchestra is integrated into
the whole spectacle. The
musicians and I will be on-
stage, but there really isn't
a proper term for what we
are doing. The music will be
the focal point putting
Bizet's masterpiece front
and center but there will
still be lighting, costumes,


modest sets and actors as
fully engaged as ever."
Executive Director David
Schillhammer says, "Many
donors, large and small,
support our vision a
commitment to locally pro-
duced opera, which main-
tains jobs for Central Flor-
ida artists and stage per-
sonnel, and nurtures this
community's passion for
the art form. There is a Her-
culean effort taking place
to ensure Central Florida
maintains a local opera
product." To purchase tick-
ets, call 407-770-0071, or

'Bach at Leipzig' (It's a play)
There are several small the-
ater companies around Or-
lando of which one of the
finest and most inventive
(and therefore, most theat-
rical) is the Empty Spaces
Theatre Company. That
intrepid group will present
the play "Bach at Leipzig",
which they are calling a
"hysterical, historical story
of Germany's least remem-
bered musicians and their
master's organ!" The time
is 1722 in Germany, where
Leipzig's music director has


given up the ghost over the
famous Thomaskirche or-
gan. There, in an 18th cen-
tury version of "Survivor",
the Maestro's former pupils
fight it out to find out who
will replace him. Based on
a real time in-the-life-of
Johann Sebastian Bach, the
town council must replace
their organist from this
irreverent group, each of
whom has varying ideas of
how to "serve God" through
their music. Farce, intrigues
and witticisms ensue. Di-
rected by Kevin Becker
and Seth Kubersky, Bach at
Leipzig will be performed
from Feb. 26 to March 12
at the Shakespeare Center
in Loch Haven Park. Pur-
chase tickets at the door or
reserve by calling 407-328-
9005.

Pianist Yuja Wang with the
Russian National Orchestra
The Festival of Orchestras
has brought the world's
great orchestras to Central
Florida for more than 25
years, and the concert set
for Sunday, March 7 at 3
p.m. at the Bob Carr carries
on that great tradition.
"Awe-inspiring... should
human beings be able to
play like this?" is what
Gramophone magazine
said of the Russian National


Orchestra, which in 2008
was named one of the
world's top orchestras. The
guest pianist for the con-
cert is a perfect counterpart
to the orchestra's estimable
combination of discipline
and spontaneity. Joining
RNO is the 22-year-old pia-
nist phenom Yuja Wang,
whose command of the
piano has been described
as "astounding" and "su-
perhuman." Following her
San Francisco debut, The
Chronicle wrote, "To listen
to her in action is to re-
examine whatever assump-
tions you may have had
about how well the piano
can actually be played," and
The Washington Post called
Ms. Wang's Kennedy Center
debut "jaw-dropping." If
Ms. Wang's career contin-
ues its meteoric rise, this
concert is one you will re-
member attending for the
rest of your life. For tickets

"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 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 I
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.

Tra-la-la-la-la


Lest we forget. There is al-
ways an argument for more.
There are many "kinds" of
people. One broad category
of people deals with wealth.
I'm not talking about in-
telligence or ability, just
wealth. I know a number
of individuals who are not
particularly bright or witty
or even kind but they do
have wealth. There is an
excellent chance that such
folks are the beneficiaries
of inherited wealth. I ap-
plaud inherited wealth. If
granddaddy worked smart
or was a total scoundrel yet
had enough presence of
mind (and good legal and
financial counsel) to estab-
lish a trust (or investments)
that today pays the country
club fees, etc. for his genetic
juice, well, who are we to
judge otherwise?
To the degree any of us
can, we try to give a leg-up
to those in the bloodline
who follow. How big a
leg-up and for how long
(successive generations)
depends on a number of
factors that are not the fo-
cus of today's essay.
I have a family joke that
goes, "I'd like to live as
well as gramps." I grew up
in Iowa in the 1950s. Few
from my town of Sioux City
were vacationing in the
Virgin Islands in January
or going to the slopes for
extended ski vacations. I
heard of a kid or two who


lived that way, who left
in junior high for private
schools in the East. But they
were few, indeed. There
were some truly beauti-
ful, architecturally desir-
able homes in Sioux City. I
know; I delivered The Des
Moines Register newspaper
to them for five years. But,
simply put, ostentatious
wealth and the display of
it was unseemly and not
something "we" sensible Io-
wans ever did.
Yet my grandfather
made a bundle of money
as a lawyer and was in the
financial position of "buy-
ing" during the Great De-
pression. He lived grandly
by such standards of the
times. He had two "do-
mestics" who handled the
children (seven), the house
and the cooking. He trav-
eled extensively in the 30s
to Florida to big game fish.
Alaska, Mexico and Canada,
too. To fish. My father drove
new cars to college during
the Depression. He married
the most beautiful woman
(empirically) in town and
joined his father's law firm
(Jepson, Jepson, Jepson
& Jepson). It had to have
been a "good" time for him.
But by the time 1970 rolled
around, he was recently
divorced and for all intents
and purposes, broke. He
spent the next 26 years of
his life happily doing his
thing and accumulating a


little money on the side.
My father always did
his thing. Except when he
didn't. He wanted to be a
physician but my grand-
father insisted he become
a lawyer, like all his sons. I
know that "chapped" my
father. He grew up (the
family baby) with the pro-
verbial "silver spoon." But
that never handicapped his
spirit; actually having the
benefits of wealth at a cer-
tain age can be a wonder-
fully liberating experience
in what it provides. He had
the independent soul of an
anarchist with the mind
and language skills of a law-
yer. A dichotomy, yes, but it
was a great combo for the
20th century.
Wealth. Is a tool. Is an
instrument. (It should be
a verb.) It provides access,
opportunity. It can be lib-
erating (except when it
isn't). Wealth is relative. It is
temporary (because human
life is temporary). I've said
it before the only thing
better (for me) than being
Christopher Robin Jepson
would have been to be
Christopher Robin Jepson
Rothschild or Christopher
Robin Jepson Medici. But
then again, if I had been
a Rothschild or Medici, I
would not have been a Jep-
son and I am "content," at
ease with who I am. I have
to be. If we could choose
our parents before we were
born, well, just imagine that
world.
I was blessed at birth!
The stars, Jupiter and Mars
aligned to give me Chris
and Marybelle Jepson for
my parents. Thank you.
How much is enough?
How much does "one" re-
quire to be happy? This is
a tricky question? One of
the trickiest of all. Particu-
larly in the "type" of world
(society) we now inhabit.


Human beings, I believe, are
"inherently" status-driven.
Both men and women are,
for the sake of this conver-
sation, a bit like the male
peacock. We preen and
poise for the most funda-
mental of reasons, to have
access to the opposite sex.
"Some" psychologists sug-
gest that is what everything
(life) is all about. The art,
the music, the literature,
the building of financial
empires, whatever it is,
snowboarding like Shawn
White, it is all about access
to the opposite sex. Being
noticed. Being desired.
To the degree wealth
achieves or facilitates that
function is a matter of
economics. The big-haired
women of the stock car
Daytona 500 world (as an
entire economic subgroup)
are, perhaps, "driven"
(have been conditioned)
to respond to (value) the
trappings of flashy cars and
speed (Vroom! Vroom!).
Whatever. What you drive
(to some) determines your
"value" to the ladies.
America's women are
similarly "driven" to stand
out. Every economic class
has its signals, its trappings,
it's hierarchy of exclusivity
based on/off wealth.
But at some point in life,
wealth, in and of itself, is
not about sexual desirabil-
ity (although that big sexy
bulge in your back pocket
has been determined to al-
ways be in demand), wealth
is about what it provides. To
you. For others.
But again, how much is
enough? The swindler Ber-
nie Madoff wiped out a lot
of people or reduced them
down to their last million
or two in the bank. I've
seen them crying on televi-
sion. I get it. They've lost a
(varying) degree of security,
of flexibility. They "vas"


robbed. I'd execute the
SOB. Seriously. Wouldn't
hesitate. It might have a
salubrious affect on deter-
ring similarly like-minded
scoundrels.
I know a professional
chap in Winter Park whose
wealth is perhaps around
$10 million. He owns real
estate. He does well. He
travels. He's intellectually
engaged. He laughs at him-
self. And, if I were judging
this individual (and I am),
I'd say he'd be what he is
(today) regardless of his $10
million. Or $8 million. And
that is key. To me.
Right this moment, as
I write this, the leaves are
playfully rustling with the
squirrels in my sun-dappled
backyard, and I am listen-
ing to an exquisite piece
of jazz titled, "Ben Webster
for Lovers," by the superb
saxophonist Ben Webster.
Buy it. Order it today. While
you are at it, order "Waltz
for Debby" by the Bill Evans
Trio. These two albums are
ecstasy for the ears, heart
and spirit. They are sublime.
And are available to anyone
- to anyone regardless of
their level of wealth.
Artist Paul Signac said of
Monet, "He paints as a bird
sings."
Wealth can facilitate
many things. But regardless
the size of your checking
account, wealth is not a
requirement in hearing (a)
Monet sing to you.
Can I hear a "Tra-la-la-la-
la," the joy of art from each
of you? And, trust me, you
don't even have to carry a
tune!
Sweet. Life can be.

Charter amendments on March 9 ballot deciphered


As a member of the Win-
ter Park Charter Review
Committee it seems ap-
propriate to offer insight
into the reasons behind the
recommended changes to
the charter. The City Com-
mission approved all of the
Charter Review Commit-
tee's recommendations.

Amendment 1- Add a Pre-
amble to the Charter
Voter approval of this
amendment will provide
the city charter with more
character and vision.

Amendment 2- Remove the
City Boundary List
There is no legal require-
ment to include city bound-
aries in a city charter. The
boundary listing is the first
56 pages of the 71 page
charter document. Read-
able charter language is
only 15 pages long. Voter


approval of this recommen-
dation will not affect the
process of changing the city
boundaries.

Amendment 3- Create a
Charter Review Advisory
Committee Every 10 years
The last full review of the
charter was 26 years ago.
Voter approval of this
amendment will ensure
that the charter is reviewed
on a timelier basis.

Amendment 4- Term of Of-
fice and Term Limits
The charter states that no
member of the City Com-
mission may serve more
than four consecutive
terms but the charter does
not define what a term is.
The recommended lan-
guage: (1) excludes time
served by a person that
temporarily fills a vacancy
and (2) includes time


served by a person that re-
signs or otherwise vacates
their office. Further, a com-


missioner or mayor that
would term-out at the end
of their current term, could
resign from office prior to
the end of that term, and
then run for office again.
Voter approval of this
amendment will define the
meaning of a term in office


and close a loophole that
allows someone to avoid
the four-term limit.

Amendment 5- Remove
Salary Amounts from the
Charter
Salaries were set in 1953 at
$2,400 per year for a com-
missioner and $3,000 per
year for the mayor and have
never been changed. Voter
approval of this amend-
ment will allow the city
commission to reset com-
pensation to be more con-
sistent with modern times.

Amendment 6- Eliminate
Special Elections to Fill Va-
cancies on the Commission
Voter approval of this
amendment will allow the
commission to fill its va-
cancies until the next elec-
tion thereby eliminating
the need to spend $30,000
for a special election.


Amendment 7- Require the
Commissioners and Mayor
to be Physically Present
No one listening in over the
phone can see public pre-
sentations that may include
charts or photographs. Sec-
ond, when listening over a
telephone line, it is difficult
to hear and impossible to
see the body language of
anyone in attendance. Vot-
er approval of this amend-
ment assures that the com-
missioners and the mayor
are able to fully participate
in commission meetings.

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

What's new(s)

aturday, Feb. 20, Glenn
Beck addressed the
Conservative Political
Action Conference conven-
tion in Washington. Every
visible American listening
to Mr. Beck on Saturday
was inspired to cheers. The
content of his talk, and the
scale of his passionate de-
livery, immediately made
me see Glenn Beck as the
ideal Republican candidate
for president. A vivid, histri-
onic performer, Beck mes-
merized his large audience,
who were on their feet long
after he had said his last
words. Beck's talents on TV
have captivated many of us.
To me, Beck can command
wonders that no other per-
son on today's stage can.

Rough time for president:
President Obama has been
putting frantic efforts into
seeing his "ObamaCare"
health bill become law
while his popularity is con-


Thursday, February 25, 2010 Page 15


comitantly tanking. How
much does the public trust
his health care bill, or Mr.
Obama himself?

Why don't we take Presi-
dent Barack Obama at his
word as he writes in his two
autobiographical books?
Familiarity reveals that
the man's education is tied
in every direction to Karl
Marx, and one must logical-
ly assume that he harbors
a hankering to do away
with capitalism in some
palatable manner. Read his
words and decide!

Last night I asked my wife
if she would vote for Sarah
Palin.
She said, "For what?"
"For like president," I
said.
"Whom would she be
running against?" she
asked.
"How about Obama, for
starters?"
"Well," she said, "I would
probably vote for anybody
running against Obama -
period!"

Uptight: Do you remem-
ber when "uptight" was a
brand-new expression? It
was a gift from the 1960s
counterculture, if I remem-
ber correctly. At first I was
uncomfortable saying "up-
tight," because there were
other conventional ways of
saying the same thing.
However, "uptight" has
a particular onomatopoeic
whang, meaning that the
words sound like what
they're saying. Incidentally,
when someone asked me
the meaning of onomato-
poeia, I found myself think-
ing of a certain lady I know.
This mature lady was not
"up" at all, and she was not
"tight" in any way. In fact
we had seen each other but


two or three times socially
and never really got to
know each other. I found
her mate a likeable and in-
telligent chap, and am sorry
that we have never become
closer friends. But, "up-
tight" was the perfect name
for his lady-fair. Uptight she
is!
In my grandmother's day
the lady would have been
described, perhaps accu-
rately, but in a softer way
than "uptight," an expres-
sion that hits hard.
My experience with
people is that I usually get
along fine with most, who
are interesting and non-
phony. When I met the
lady in question I found
her interesting enough,
but somehow I managed
unintentionally to rub her
the wrong way just once.
My attempt at a friendship
of sorts ran into a snag. She
cut everything off short in a
snippy manner and left me
wondering what in her had
ever charmed me.
Well, you can't win 'em
all! As Aristotle said, "Man is
a political animal."

I once crossed the ocean
after a few months singing
in Germany and was faced
with the phrase "freaked
out." I accepted that new
expression into my word
recognition, but I've never
had the tasteless need to
use it.

Our socialist (?) president:
"Besides, the problem is
not the 'crises' Obama in-
herited. It's the ones he's
creating.... he still intends
to govern like a socialist. He
only wants to do a better
job of figuring out how to
do it less visibly, hoping we
won't 'get it' before it's too
late." columnist David
Limbaugh


(We are getting to know
Mr. Obama well perhaps
too well by now. But, alas,
We are stuck with him.)

The president's slick health
care pig-in-a-poke: "... there
was never to be enough
time for the health care bill
to be exposed in the light
of day in the usual congres-
sional hearings and debate.
... the health care program
would not actually go into
effect until after the 2012
presidential election. In
other words, the public was
not supposed to find out
whether the government's
takeover of medical care
actually made things bet-
ter or worse until after it
was too late." Economist
Thomas Sowell (Worse, is
my guess.)

Do those who listen to
President Obama's orations
ever have the feeling that
he is speaking as the head
of a different country, and
that he is smiling upon not
Democracy, but another
philosophy of government,
namely Marxism? Obama's
acrid criticism of the U.S.
when he is abroad certainly
ties in more logically with
his Leftist education, and
his lifetime fascination
with the concepts of Karl
Marx. Sometimes I wonder
if Mr. Obama could give us
a straight, out-loud read-
ing of the U.S. Constitution
and manage to keep his
inner composure. Adept
Saul Alinsky pupil Obama
was taught assiduously to
denigrate the U.S. In public,
Mr. Obama vainly needs
the histrionic talents of an
Olivier.

When I was a kid in the
South, I wore short pants
and was a Democrat. I
didn't know there was any-


thing else. One day I asked
a cousin of mine, "Who are
all those people walkin'
north on highway number
1?" He told me, "They were
Democrats goin' up North
to see if they could find
a place where they could
make somethin' of their-
selves." I gave up Demo-
crats along with Cracker
Jacks, marbles and other
embarrassing addictions of
my youth. I later joined up
with the Republicans who
seemed to have less to be
ashamed of. I would guess
that about a quarter of the
Republican Party today are
ashamed of themselves.
Today I'm a conservative,
which means a Republican
who's assiduously unobjec-
tionable.

This longtime Winter Park-
er can scarcely remember
a stretch of such long, cold
winter weather. I thought I
saw Al Gore's head sticking
out of the hole on Ground-
hog Day just to see if he
could find a warm spot.
Now he's back in his hole
hiding, I guess.

It is my closely held belief
that what we have installed
in the White House does
not conform in any mean-
ingful way with the stan-
dards we have long hon-
ored and cherished. Does
that slow Obama down a
whit? Who are We, after all?
-Just the people!

"Because power cor-
rupts, society's demands
for moral authority and
character increase as the
importance of the position
increases." John Adams
(What would he tell us
today?)


OP-ED I Amendment 10 most contested of the propositions

ployee of the city." Then,
in the fourth sentence, "...
each member of the com-
mission is free to direct
the city manager..." The
recommended language
changes the fourth sen-
tence to read: "... the com-
mission, by a majority vote,
may direct the city man-
ager..." Voter approval re-
moves a contradiction and
assures the city manager
that directions come from
the commission as a whole.

Amendment 9 Revise Sec-
tion 2.08 to agree with Sec-
tion 2.10


Voter approval of this
amendment makes this
section consistent with
Recommendation #7.

Amendment 10 Add Sec-
tion 2.11 (b) (10) Amend
Comprehensive Plan
This amendment adds the
requirement of a superma-
jority vote to make text
changes to the Future Land
Use Element of the Com-
prehensive Plan. Voter ap-
proval of this amendment
will stabilize the Land Use
Element by making it more
difficult to quickly change
the Comprehensive Plan.

Amendment 11 Delete


Public Safety Director
The city has not employed
a public safety director
for many years. Voter ap-
proval of this amendment
removes an appearance of
non-compliance with the
charter.

Amendment 12 Add a Lo-
cal Code of Ethics
Voter approval of this
amendment ensures that
the city will maintain a lo-
cal code of ethics.
