The computer room, warm
with the air of a dozen
campaign supporters and
family members, buzzed
with tense anticipation.
The refresh button was hit

Cooper's iPhone rang. On
the other line was Lamm,

Station to

be rebuilt

ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Winter Park residents
learned more about how
their new Amtrak Station
could shape up after Mayor
Ken Bradley introduced
plans for a complete rebuild
at Monday's meeting.
The city is in the prelimi-
nary design phase of the
new station, which could be
open as early as the end of
2011.
Bradley said that it could
be larger and more accom-
modating to rail users as well
as the general public.
"It'll be a little bit bigger
for bathrooms, and they'll be
integrated for the public us-
ing the park," Bradley said.
More specific physical
features have yet to be de-
termined as the city works
through design and obtain-
ing funding for the station,
which is estimated to cost $1
million.
That money would come
from the Federal Transit Ad-
ministration; money which
Bradley said is already ear-
marked for the station, but
has yet to arrive.
In the meantime, city staff
is poring over a preliminary
design to work as a frame-
work for the final design
phase.
"I think as this initial de-
sign comes out, I'm sure we'll
be looking at doing things
that are architecturally sig-
nificant," Bradley said.

Underground market pays off

Most homes sales in January consisted of bank-owned homes and short sales


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
Steve Moreira pulled up to
the beige house and imme-
diately the buzz of a heavy
duty reciprocating saw
floated from the backyard,
through the open house to
the driveway. The beast of
a power tool is commonly
called a Sawzall because,
well, it saws all.
Moreira laughed at the
sound because he knew
what was in store. In the
backyard, a two-man crew


was using the vibrating
blade to cut a boat into bite-
sized pieces and load it onto
a pick-up truck's bed.
Mike Allen lamented the
dismantling of the boat
because, frankly, it's a nice
boat.
"Well, the trailers all
messed up or we would've
pulled it out of here," says
Allen, the saw's operator,
wearing a white T-shirt
flecked with green paint.

Thousands satisfy sweet tooth at fest

Orlando Science Center hosted four
floors of chocolate creations, games


KATIE KUSTURA
OBSERVER STAFF
Victoria Huffman peered
over the heads of two tiny
boys, bouncing on her heels
as she waited in line for a
taste of chocolate-covered
popcorn. Squeezing her way
to the front, the thirteen-
year-old blonde grabbed a
handful of the stuff and lit
up with a smile.
"The chocolate-covered
popcorn is awesome," she
said.
Chocolate-covered pop-
corn was just one of the
many sweet treats available
at last weekend's Festival
of Chocolate, hosted by the
Orlando Science Center
(OSC).
Last Saturday, March 6,
and Sunday, March 7, an es-
timated 7,000 attendees ex-
plored four floors of choco-
late tasting, shopping, edu-
cation and interactive ex-
periences, according to Jeff
Stanford, OSC's VP of Com-
munications.
Vendors from all over
Florida brought out their
very best for the festival.
Six of the festival's vendors
have stores in Winter Park
or stands at the Winter Park
Farmer's Market.
Donna Moore, founder
of Chateau E.I.E.I.O, brought
some of her famous Barko-
late bars, which are made


of dark chocolate and other
natural ingredients. In addi-
tion to the Barkolate bars,
the OSC had a special re-
quest.
"They asked me if I would
do a gross booth, so I named
it 'Double Dare Ya'," said
Moore.
Moore's gross booth fea-
tured jalapenos dipped in
chocolate that were deco-
rated to look like mice,
alligator jerky dipped in
chocolate and other strange
sweets.
Across the room from
Moore's booth, Xocai's Bet-
ty Hendrick hawked antiox-
idant-filled chocolate at her
health-food themed table.
Just feet away from Xo-
cai, Peterbrooke Chocolat-
ier owners Kevin and Jami
Wray said they received
great reactions to their un-
usual turn on the popped
movie theater favorite.
"'Wow,' that's what we
hear most often," said Jami
Wray. "'Wow, this stuff is awe-
some' and 'Who would've
thought of putting choco-
late on popcorn?'"
Huffman was just one of
the many that devoured a
sample of the stuff.
Kids enjoyed much more
than free samples at the fes-
tival. Avia Dow, 9, was one
of the four who competed
in the kids' cookie stacking
competition.

Cookie-stacking aroused a competitive spirit in four youngsters at the Orlando Science Center's Festival of Chocolate.


Dow said she was con-
fident and, although she
didn't win, she wouldn't shy
away from the other com-
petitions going on that day.
Aaron and Michele
Banks, owners of the Young
Chefs Academy (YCA) in
Winter Park, also brought
kid-friendly activities. Mi-
chele demonstrated how to
make candy sushi and Aar-
on manned the cake-pop
station.
"We definitely got a lot of
potential here," said Aaron
Banks, who hopes he met
some future YCA members
at the festival.
Someone who doesn't
need cooking lessons is Pam


Kent, owner of Pam's Con-
fections, who won an award
for her red velvet cupcakes.
Pam typically sells her
sweets at the Winter Park
Farmer's Market.
Sprinkles Custom Cakes,
located off West Fairbanks
Avenue, also received recog-
nition at the festival, taking
second place in the "best
chocolate cake" competi-
tion with their famous "Oh
My God" chocolate cake.
Darryl Tate may not have
won anything, but he cer-
tainly received a lot of in-
quiries about his product.
What Tate brought may not
have been edible, but the
dessert-inspired art looked


sweet enough to eat.
Lauren Elkins, 20, said
she couldn't wait to pur-
chase one of his cupcake
paintings.
"They were just really
bright and colorful and I
thought they were just ador-
able," said Elkins.
Marley Kunzler, 35, came
to the festival with his fam-
ily where he found plenty of
activities for the kids and an
enjoyable atmosphere over-
all.
"It was lots of fun," said
Kunzler. "There was lots of
chocolate and lots of good
smells in the air."


Creative funding


Orange County schools will sell ads on district's Web sites


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER
Orange County Public
Schools is getting creative
with ways to bring more
money into the school sys-
tem.
They've launched a sales
and marketing department
that will sell limited adver-
tisements on the district's
highly visited Web sites.
"The point is, we're try-
ing to be creative, think
outside the box to generate
revenue," said Rick Collins,
OCPS chief financial officer.
He told parents and
teachers at a district com-
munity engagement meet-
ing on March 2 about the
county's partnership with
CFE Federal Credit Union
to launch an affinity debit
card that pays a nickel to
the school district for ev-
ery signature transaction by
cardholders.
In addition to the Web


advertising, the depart-
ment will sell sponsorships
in sports venues and tour-
naments across the district
to put toward an athletics
preservation fund.
The schools will also be-
gin earning a licensing fee
for the use of the schools'
logos. Goods with school
logos emblazoned on them,
such as hats and T-shirts,
sold at major retailers such
as Walgreens, Wal-Mart and
Albertsons will bring money
into the district. Collins said
licensing contracts with
manufacturers have already
been secured.
April Bird, a teacher at
Cypress Springs Elementary
School, is in favor of the ef-
fort.
"I think that it's impor-
tant that we tap into what-
ever resources we can at
this point," Bird said. "It's a
positive win-win. I'm very
excited they're doing this."


Daryl Flynn, vice chair-
woman of the Orange Coun-
ty School Board, pointed
out that the district has $43
million less than last year to
work with.
The potential funding
per student has decreased
significantly in the last two
and a half years. With the
federal budget stabilization
funds, there was a $510 re-
duction per student from
July 2007 to January 2010.
Compared to the rest
of the country, Florida re-
ceived a C- grade in school
finance and an F grade in
spending. Florida is ranked
31st in the country.
"We need your contin-
ued advocacy," she told the
attendees of the meeting,
adding that the new session
in Tallahassee began this
week.
"Everybody is fighting for
the buck. It's my job to fight
for education."

Knights win season finale over Rice

After four-game Conference USA slide, the UCF men's basketball team beat the Owls in a nail-biter


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
After dropping four straight
conference losses heading
into the final game of the
season, the Knights were
looking for a boost heading
into the Conference USA
tournament. They found
it Saturday against Rice,
whom the Knights dropped
66-59 on a dramatic play by
A.J. Rompza.
Rompza would hammer
home the deciding 3-point-
er to split the scoring gap
open going into the final
minute of the game. But it
was Taylor Young who led
the Knights in scoring, with
14 points in the contest.
Marcus Jordan, who has
rapidly improved his scor-
ing ability in the second half
of the season, picked up 12
points, 4 rebounds and 3 as-
sists in the game.
The Knights shot 56.8
percent overall, one of their
most accurate games all sea-
son.
The Knights had been in
free fall in their final two
weeks of the season, los-
ing crucial games to C-USA
opponents that could have


righted their season. Had
the Knights won their final
five games, they would be
10-6 and tied for 5th in the
conference. Instead, they
dropped to 9th in that same
period.
Their nail-biter win over
the worst team in the con-
ference didn't improve their
standing on the C-USA lad-
der, as they remain 9th of 12
teams with a 14-16 overall
record and 6-10 in confer-
ence play.
Their ninth seeding in the
Conference USA champion-
ship put them in an uncom-
fortable position going into
the first round against SMU
at press time on Wednesday.
Despite slotting just below
the Mustangs in the confer-
ence rankings, the Knights
were badly outmatched in
the two teams' previous
meeting. The Knights lost
65-43 to the Mustangs on
Jan. 27.
If they make it through
to the second round, the
Knights could be playing
again at 10 p.m. Thursday
against UTEP the con-
ference's best team at 24-5
overall and 15-1 in the con-
ference.


PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK -THE OBSERVER
Taylor Young led the Knights to victory Saturday with a 14-point performance, as UCF righted its losing ways with a narrow win
over Rice to help the team build momentum for the postseason. With a win against SMU, the Knights will face UTEP Thursday.


Wildcats win it all

After suffering playoff disappointment three of the past four years, Winter Park wins the state title


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Winter Park Wildcats
had already been to the Fi-
nal four for three of the last
four years. And every time
they had lost, just shy of the
championship. But not this
time. On Saturday night the
scoreboard lit up with the
numbers 76-57 burned into
history. The Wildcats had fi-
nally won it all.
A massive surge of points
from the Wildcats opened
the second half gap that
would lead them all the way
to the closing buzzer. By the
time the final point had fall-
en, the Cats had dominated
the scoreboard for nearly
the entire game.
"I've been dreaming
about this ever since I was a
little kid," Junior Austin Riv-
ers said.
Rivers, again the electric
star of the court, led the way


for his team, picking up 23
points on the strength of
four from outside the big
arc. Right behind him se-
nior Robert Lovaglio ham-
mered home 17 points and
grabbed 10 rebounds. Brett
Comer dropped 14 points
into the bucket. Isaac Turner
was the fourth to go double
digits, with 11 points.
Adam Jones kept the ball
in his team's hands, picking
up 9 rebounds, 4 blocks and
3 assists.
And as the team left the
court for the final time
this season, they carried
with them a combined ac-
complishment that Florida
hadn't seen in high school
basketball for nearly 100
years. Two Orange County
teams won the champion-
ship title the same weekend,
which hadn't been done
since 1922. But the tradi-
tional South Florida pow-
erhouses that had routinely

Winter Park dominated Doctor Phillips to redeem itself at the state championship, pulling away in the second half and sealing a
76-57 win. If chosen, they may return to the court for the ESPN Rise National High School Invitational on April 1.


shut Central Florida out of
the championship finally
felt the sting of defeat, as
Class lA's Orlando Christian
Prep also won a state title.


The Wildcats could have
one more stop in the post-
season, if they're lucky
enough to be selected for
the ESPN Rise National High


School Invitational. Only
eight boys teams will be on
the invite list this year. That
tournament tips off April 1
in Baltimore.

UNDERGROUND I Some professionals are banking on this 'underground' market


< continued from the front page

in. If we tried to pull it down
the road, it probably would
have collapsed because ev-
erything's rusted."
Moreira, the former pres-
ident of the Orlando Real-
tors' Association, says these
are just some of the prob-
lems he and his investors
encounter on a regular day.
Two years ago, Moreira was
buying commercial real es-
tate properties low and sell-
ing them high, places such
as corner gas stations.
Business was booming -
until the bust. Now, sitting
in the wake of the worst
economic downturn since
the Great Depression, Mor-
eira again finds himself play-
ing a vital role in the largest
part of Orlando's real estate
market.
He works for investors,
who pool millions of dollars
together and buy distressed
homes in large chunks from
banks. Then Moreira and
his crews work their magic
- cutting up boats, pulling
out sheds, turning green
pools blue again so that
the property can again be
sold.
It's a business that's grow-
ing and misunderstood.
Moreira calls it the "under-
ground realty market."
"That's a profit center,"
Moreira said. "If you can get
a hold of 100 non-perform-
ing loans, and you're paying
20, 25 cents on the dollar,
and you've got access to all
the tools you need ... that's
the type of thing that some-
body can still make a profit
on."
In January, the Orlando
real estate market set a re-
cord, with three out of four
homes being sold by the
bank or through a short
sale, dropping the median
price of existing homes to
$103,000, a 14 percent drop
from the month before.

Mike Allen and Robert Baskins tear apart a boat marked for removal at a foreclosed property. The team fixes up foreclosed properties and puts them back on the market.


Randy Anderson, a How-
ard Phillips Eminent Schol-
ar Chair and real estate pro-
fessor at the University of
Central Florida, said that, in
the most simplistic terms,
investors are buying low
and selling high. He said
that, while buying distressed
bank properties has always
been an industry, it's grow-
ing, with some hedge funds
and institutional investors
getting into the mix.
"It's not new that people
try to buy distressed assets
from banks and try to do in-
teresting things," Anderson
said. "It's actually becoming
more of an industry and a
little more organized right
now.
"A lot of this is happening
because most people believe
that on the residential side
... we're at or near the bot-
tom," Anderson said. "Espe-
cially for homes at or below
median price range."
Moreira currently has


12 homes he's working on,
with 20 more homes com-
ing down the pipeline to be
repaired. On average, it takes
a four-man crew no more
than three weeks to get a
home ready for the market,
usually costing about $1,500
(cutting up a boat costs ex-
tra, though).
When a buyer takes a
look at the home, they can
sometimes qualify for a
203K program, which will
allow them to borrow an
additional $35,000 on top
of the cost of the home to
put in repairs.
But, Moreira said, the guy
getting the best deal can do
the repairs on his own.
"You have to factor in
that extra money for things
you're not anticipating,"
Moreira said. "So maybe
buying a home that's prop-
erly priced on the market
makes sense unless you're
extremely handy yourself
and have access to discount


products."
Or, as Anderson said, this
may not be the time for your
first foray into real estate in-
vestment.
"It's not amateur hour,"
Anderson said. "You need
to know what you're doing.
You can still make a mistake,
even in a down market."
Talking to Moreira about
the heyday of real estate in
Florida, he sounds a little
like he's talking about a lost
love, or the 80-pound Marlin
that got away. He's been in
the business in Florida since
the 1970s, and he made just
one mistake. He put all the
money he made back into
real estate.
"All of this is at a loss,"
Moreira said. "It was all un-
derwritten at double the
price of what you can sell
for now. When you say, how
was the heyday, the heyday
was double the price, for
even substandard products.
"And yeah, I'm very com-


fortable saying that's gone
and not gonna return," Mor-
eira said.
Does he wish it would?
"Every day," Moreira said.
"But not if it's gonna ruin
the country. And it seems
like it's ruined at least Flor-
ida. Florida it's ruined for
a long time."


The March 4 article "Closure for city and fireman" misstated the fire union's role in Winter Park fire marshal Randall Mells' termination appeal. Although the
union sided with Mells, it was not involved in his appeal. The union only served as a messenger between the fire department and Mells.

Phone Discounts Available to CenturyLink customers

With Link-Up America and Lifeline Assistance Programs, qualified
low-income telephone customers can save money on installation charges and
the monthly rate for basic local residential service. This includes access to
long distance carriers, Emergency Services, Operator Services, Directory
Assistance and Toll Blocking.

Link-Up America is a federally-sponsored program that provides discounted
service installation charges to qualifying low-income customers. It provides
a 50 percent discount, up to a maximum of $30 for new residential installation
charges for telephone service. The balance of the installation charges can be

charge for toll restriction will be waived for customers requesting or required
to have the service.
Lifeline Assistance is another federally-sponsored program for low-income
customers. It provides a discount to the monthly charge for basic residential
telephone service. Lifeline Assistance Program rates have been reduced and
guidelines have been changed to allow for more low-income customers.
To qualify for both programs, customers may enroll in the CenturyLink
Lifeline program by providing verification that they meet state low-income
eligibility requirements. In addition, Tribal Telephone Assistance is available
for those living on federally-recognized American Indian Tribal lands.

MEETING I Quiet zones could be in store


< continued from the front page

Bradley goes to Tallahassee
The mayor also reported on his
recent trip to Tallahassee where he
lobbied for funding for city proj-
ects.
One of his biggest requests was
for a dedicated funding source for
SunRail and for quiet zones in the
city. Quiet zones are areas where
trains are not allowed to sound


their horns, which decreases noise
pollution in cities that enact them.
In order to allow for quiet zones in
Winter Park, the city would need to
install special large reinforced gates
at crossings, which make it impos-
sible for cars to cross while they're
down.
"With redistricting coming up,
that should be an important item
on our agenda," Bradley said.


ELECTION I Only one amendment fell


< continued from the front page

tra of preserving Winter Park and
staving off undesired development
- had won.
"We've worked very hard," Coo-
per said a few minutes later. "What
you see is truly grass roots. It truly is
community."
Cooper beat Lamm 51 percent
to 49 percent, and Tom McMacken
beat Peter Gottfried 52 percent to
47. More than 6,100 Winter Park
residents voted in the election.
"We're very excited," McMacken
said. "It was a close race.... We're just
very happy. We're going to spend
the night with family and friends."
In nearby Maitland, incumbent
Bev Reponen won a command-
ing 68 percent of the vote to beat
challenger Bill Randolph. Howard
Schieferdecker was unopposed to
replace term-limited Councilman
Jeff Flowers.
Orange County Supervisor of
Elections Bill Cowles predicted that
Winter Park and Maitland would
have the highest turnout in Orange
County.
"We knew going in, as we do
with any election, that ballots and
candidates and issues are what
drive turnout," Cowles said. "It's
very clear, particularly with Winter
Park and Maitland, that the candi-
dates and the issues are driving the
turnout."
Winter Park also tweaked its con-
stitution during Tuesday's election.


The one drawing the biggest con-
tention, though, was Amendment
10, which, had it passed, would re-
quire a 4-1 vote to change the lan-
guage of the Comprehensive Plan
on land-use changes.
Amendment 10 was the only
ballot initiative to be voted down
in the election all 11 others were
voted in. Cooper, a supporter of
Amendment 10, said it was "disap-
pointing" that it lost.
Winter Park financial planner
Scott Peelen voted for Gottfried
and Lamm this election cycle. In his
mind, the economy, jobs and eco-
nomic development were the fore-
most issues.
"I think anyone that wants to
hamstring all development, which
I feel very strongly that the others
want to do, really will eventually
hurt the job situation, the economy
and the tax base of Winter Park,"
Peelen said. "While they say they
don't want to stop all business,
business has too many places to
go in Central Florida rather than
settling in a place that doesn't em-
brace them with open arms."
In Winter Park, Margie Bridges
left Seat 4 because she made a cam-
paign promise to only serve one
term. Sitting Commissioner Karen
Diebel didn't run because she's vy-
ing for the Republican nomination
to run against Suzanne Kosmas for
the U.S. House of Representatives.


Drinking to Your Health

By Kar-Yee Ng, MD
Oviedo Family Medicine Specialists

Losing weight is a beast that haunts most of
America. More than two-thirds of Americans
are overweight or obese, and the numbers (and
waist lines) are growing, according to an article
by Elizabeth Dennis in the journal Obesity.
Most people who are overweight know the
recipe for losing those extra pounds: diet and
exercise. Even though we've all heard it before,
it's difficult to put into practice. After a long
day of work or school, we're exhausted, and the
last thing on our minds is taking a jog around
the neighborhood or hitting the weights at the
gym.

There's no magic pill that can replace good old diet and exercise, but studies
suggest that drinking more water significantly increases loss of body weight
and fat in overweight people, independent of diet and activity, says Jodi
Stookey in Obesity. Water makes up 60 to 70 percent of adults and is crucial
to the essential functions that occur in the human body. Human beings can
only survive days without water. Staying hydrated is necessary in energy
production, toxin removal, repair of cells and many other functions. It's not
surprising then that water is needed to bum calories and fat.

That's great news! Drinking water is something so simple that everyone
can add it to their daily routine (in addition to the dieting and exercise). We
can all carry a bottle of water to work or school and drink to our hearts'
content. So, let's have a toast then-here's to a more hydrated and healthier
you!

At Oviedo Family Medicine Specialists, we're committed to helping you
maximize your health and take control of the weight loss beast. If you
want more information, please call 407-366-8856. We're located right off
of Highway 417 in the Oviedo Marketplace at 8000 Red Bug Lake Road,
Suite 100, Oviedo, FL 32765. See you soon!

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

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)

PLAYWRIGHT I 'Doors' will run from March 30 to April 3 at the Black Box Theater


< continued from the page A10
DeWoody'sscript "Doors"
was chosen out of 40 to win
Valencia Character Com-
pany's 19th Annual Original
Play Competition among
Florida playwrights. His was
selected from full-length,
never before produced
manuscripts that writers
sent from all over the state.
"It's very exciting. The
chance to see your work,
your words coming out of
actors mouths onstage, it's
a wonderful opportunity,"
DeWoody said.
In the play, 10 charac-
ters are tossed into a "limbo
land of doors," said Julia
Gagne, who chose the win-
ner and will direct the play.
The play then centers on
the characters trying to fig-
ure out how they got there
and their interactions with
each other. Each character
plays on the theme of doors.
There's a door-to-door
salesman, a carpenter and a


Jim Morrison-like rock star.
The fact that they're from
different times and walks of
life make their interactions
more unique, Gagne said.

' 'THE CHANCE TO
SEE YOUR WORK,
YOUR WORDS
COMING OUT OF
ACTORS MOUTHS
ONSTAGE, IT'S
A WONDERFUL
OPPORTUNITY 9
STEPHEN DEWOODY
Gagne liked that there
were 10 role opportuni-
ties for her students, that it
could be easily staged and
"it just felt like the right
play" when she read it.
"There are multi-layers;
there's humor," Gagne said.
"You have to care what hap-
pens, and it does hook you,
and you want to find out


what happens next."
Martha Gibbons who
plays Alice from "Alice in
Wonderland" in the play,
agreed with Gagne.
"I find something new in
this play every time I read
it," Gibbons said. "You can
tell he put a lot of thought
into almost every line."
The funny part is De-
Woody said he actually
didn't spend too much time
writing the play. He usually
does outlines for his plays,
but this one he let come
naturally. When he sat
down to write he just "let
the characters start talk-
ing." He'd think of someone
he wanted to come through
the door, have them stumble
into his world and see what
happened next.
"Once you get into the
rhythm, it's fun," he said.
Now that rhythm will
continue on the Black Box
Theater stage. And while
he said he's no "starry-eyed
kid," considering his long

resume, he admits it's pretty
cool to see actors bring his
characters to life.
Gibbons is happy to make
that happen, and as it's her
first rodeo in a Valencia
produced play and working
with a writer, she's got plen-
ty of stars in her eyes for the
both of them.
"It's something I've al-
ways wanted to do," she
said. "The idea of being able
to work with the writer is


so exciting it's a once in a
lifetime opportunity."
"Doors" will be on the
Black Box Theater stage on
Valencia's East Campus, lo-
cated at 701 N. Econlock-
hatchee Trail in Orlando,
March 30 through April 3 at
7:30 p.m.

"The Mayflower Is Delightful!

I Should Have Moved Here Sooner."


Longtime Winter Park resident
and business owner Dick Proctor
first learned of The Mayflower
when it opened in 1989. Right
away, he knew the community
would be the perfect retirement
option for him. But, he didn't
move in until nearly 10 years later.
"I should have come here sooner,"
he says. "Most people wait too
long." At The Mayflower, the


retired businessman fits right in.
"People I've known for years in
Winter Park live here. The residents
and staff are wonderful; the service
is great. It's a delightful place."

If you're looking at retirement
living options, take a look at The
Mayflower. There are so many
reasons to come .. but not one
good reason to wait.

Free Philharmonic,

quickie Shakespeare,

and Richard Marx live


Free outdoor concert by the
Orlando Philharmonic
The long winter of our dis-
content is finally ended,
and there is no better way
to celebrate the return of
warm weather than with a
free concert in the park by
the Orlando Philharmonic.
The Philharmonic invites
friends and families to their
annual Spring Pops concert
at 7 p.m. Sunday, March 14
in Winter Park's Central
Park. Presented by the Hol-
lander Trust, the concert
will be led by Maestro Dirk
Meyer in a program called


Musical Postcards. The mu-
sical selections for these
concerts always include
beautiful, popular music,
and this year's 'trip around
the world' includes Espana
by Chabrier, Salute to the
Big Apple by Calvin Custer,
Miss Saigon by Claude-
Michel Sch6nberg, and the
Overture to Gypsy byJule
Styne. A special added treat
is guest artist Susanna Diaz,
who will join the Philhar-
monic to sing "Over the
Rainbow" by Harold Arlen
and "I'll Take Manhattan"
by Richard Rodgers. It's
beautiful music in a perfect


setting at the best time of
year and it's free the
perfect family event. For
information, call 407-896-
6700.

All of Shakespeare short-
ened really shortened!
The good folks at the beau-
tifully restored Garden The-
atre (in downtown Winter
Garden) love their comedy,
and you can only imagine
the potential for laughs
in a performance of "The
Complete Works of William
Shakespeare (Abridged),"
which will open March 12
and run through April 3.
Three actors Jay Hop-
kins, Christopher Prueitt
and Will Hagaman play
all the parts, and they will
be directed by the brilliant
and witty Richard Width,
who recently directed
Hamlet for the Shakespeare
Festival. This parody (of all
the plays written by Shake-
speare) are 'performed'
- or at least referred to -
during the show. The actors
speak directly to the audi-
ence and audience partici-
pation is encouraged. Even
the director and stage crew
become involved in the
performance. The script is a
lovingly farcical, tongue-in-


cheek look at Shakespeare
with humor, footnotes,
spontaneous conversa-
tions and references to
pop culture are an integral
part of the fun. As a result,
each performance varies
... keeping the actors (and
audience) on their toes. For
tickets call 407-877-4736
or visit gardentheatre.org.
Tickets may also be pur-
chased at the Theatre Box
Office at 160 W. Plant St. in
downtown Winter Garden.

Richard Marx at
the Plaza Theater
He has sold more than 30
million albums and has
written 13 No. 1 hit songs.
His self-titled debut album
kicked off his career in
1987 selling three million
copies; his 1989 follow-up
CD, "Repeat Offender", be-
came even more successful,
selling more than 7 million
copies worldwide. From
1987 to 1990, Richard Marx
became the first male solo
artist in history to have his
first seven singles reach the
Top 5 on Billboard's singles
charts, including the hits
"Hold On to the Nights",
"Satisfied", and "Right Here
Waiting", an achievement
that remains unchallenged


today.
Through all of this and
a host of awards Richard
Marx has remained a fix-
ture on pop and contempo-
rary radio. From his earliest
success, Marx has been in-
volved with charitable or-
ganizations, donating roy-
alties and building hospital
rooms for pediatric cancer
patients. He wrote and
recorded the song "Chil-
dren of the Night" about
homeless children, donat-
ing the song's royalties to
a foundation that houses
and reforms street kids.
Now we have the chance to
hear him sing those hits live
as he brings his memories
and his tuneful honesty to
the Plaza Theater in Down-
town Orlando at 8 p.m.
Friday, March 19. The Plaza
is located at 425 N. Bumby
Ave. Call 407-228-1220 for
tickets.

The revenge

of the empire


I do not particularly blame
either Congress or the
presidency for where Amer-
ica has arrived in 2010. It
would be disingenuous to
do so. How in a represen-
tative democracy can you
hold harmless the brain-
dead electorate who elect
these numb chucks in the
first place? The American
electorate is ignorant, in-
fantile and just out and out
goofy.
I am somewhat sympa-
thetic with Tea Party folks,
right up to the point where
they place the blame ex-
clusively on Washington,
as if that somehow exon-
erates them (us) from our
civic duty to 1. thoroughly
understand the issues and
2. vote intelligently. That a
majority of Americans do
neither is the crux of the
problem for our nation.
The Greeks, the Athe-
nians specifically, came up
with the word "idiotis." It
meant any man who was
blandly indifferent to pub-
lic affairs. An idiot in other
words. Indifferent, igno-
rant, infantile. And idiotic.
That is your fellow Ameri-
can.
The current "vogue" on
the right is to preach or
make the claim of Ameri-
can exceptionalism. As a
student of history I can and
do appreciate how and un-
der what circumstances the
U.S. came into being and
the values that our "Found-
ing Fathers" prized as out-
lined in our Declaration of
Independence and the U.S.
Constitution. The talk of


being exceptional, howev-
er, strikes me as comically
juvenile, something the
genuinely insecure require
to validate themselves. If
America can "truly" make
the claim to exceptional-
ism, it is an exceptionalism
that today is tarnished and
compromised. We have
become like every other
imperial power historically.
How exceptional is that?
As a liberal, a progressive
if you will, I am astounded
by my fellow baby boom-
ers. Folks, the only way that
our nation can do anything
from a social perspective is
to have our financial house
in order. We need taxes in
line with expenditures. To
clean up the environment,
to educate our children, to
have efficient and effective
transportation, to have art
(in all forms) that inspires,
requires a vibrant econo-
my capable of producing
wealth sufficient to fund
these priorities.
First, let's put Social
Security on the table. Two
things need to occur in
combination with one
another. All income needs
to be taxed for Social Secu-
rity purposes. Retirement
ages need to be extended.
We're going to have to work
longer, people. Determine
the formula of revenue vs.
benefits and do the deal
that puts this program on
a long-term sustainable
mode. All will pay more and
all will work longer. That
is realistic. That is mature.
That is what is required.
Second. If we are incapa-


ble of having a single-payer
health care system because
we are so myopically tied to
the illusion that capitalism
is the only answer to pro-
viding "quality" health care,
well, that simply won't cut
it from a financial solvency
prospect will it? Either we
actually control health care
costs or we cut benefits?
Like Social Security, our
health care system must
be sustainable. Expensive
end-of-life care has to be
brought under control.
It is asserted that a mini-
mum of 25 percent of all
Medicare expenditures are
for end-of-life services for
dying folks during the last
year of their lives. That is
an obscenity. The old, and I
count myself among them,
need to man-up and learn
to die with dignity. If you
are 80 years old and require
a new heart or kidney, well,
get in line. If you're fat and
diabetic and your kidneys
are giving out because
you refused over your life
(It's really hard to diet!)
to responsibly eat, that's
tough. Life's tough. If you've
smoked for the past 30
years and you're a wheezing
asthmatic with circulatory
problems, please don't ex-
pect scarce public dollars
to underwrite your poor
health care choices.
I'd much rather that
money provide services to
our children or for public
health. We've only so much
revenue available for so
many people. If the two
are out of sync (which they
are), it is unsustainable.
Again, a mature, realistic
electorate would under-
stand this and demand
responsible behavior from
ourselves and our elected
officials in order to achieve
it. But we aren't mature. We
aren't realistic.
Our congressional goofs
are the biggest hypocrites
going. Ask any of them if
they want to "fix" Social
Security and they'll cue im-
mediately in the line for
reform. Ask them for spe-
cifics on how to fix it and
they'll become a bunch of
mumbling monkeys. Know


why? Because all they want
is to get re-elected and we
the electorate don't have
the brains or cojones to de-
mand that decisions need
to be made now that will
require more taxes and lon-
ger individual work lives.
Same goes for health care.
Either we raise more money
and/or provide fewer ser-
vices in order for our cur-
rent health care model to
continue or we inexorably
bankrupt ourselves. And
the specific alternatives of-
fered by Republicans are
no more than simplistic,
idiotic slogans about letting
capitalism be unchained
to do its magic (Magic? See
current recession). Yeah,
right.
We are at a crossroads
folks requiring that we
bring our budget in line
with our resources. Every-
thing has to be on the table
for revision and recalibra-
tion. Social Security, Medi-
care and national defense
are the only three areas
where we can realistically
get our budget in line with
revenues. Ask your con-
gressman to speak honestly
about all three. Ask them
specifically if they want to
cut Social Security benefits?
And then laugh in their
face.
We are an imperialistic,
jingoistic nation and have
been since the 1840s. We
are constantly preparing
for war or are at war. We do
not mind our own business.
We are meddlesome and ag-
gressive. And we've allowed
our military industries to
corrupt our nation and
our democracy. We have
more than 700 military
bases abroad! And we spend
45 percent of the entire
world's expenditures on
war or preparing for war.
Our nearest rival spends 8
percent. Presidents Wash-
ington and Eisenhower,
generals both, presciently
warned us exactly what
would happen to America.
And we the citizens have
allowed it to happen be-
cause we are indifferent,
uninterested or too stupid
to care. (Google: Chalmers


Johnson).
We spend nearly a tril-
lion a year on war or pre-
paring for war (or for the
euphemism of "homeland
security"). It is killing us, lit-
erally. It is killing us finan-
cially. It is killing us demo-
cratically. It will destroy us
as a people and as a nation.
We are, America is, impe-
rialistic. Imperial Rome
is gone. Imperial Spain is
gone. Imperial Britain is
gone. Imperial America is
inevitably gone, too. And
should be.
We will not get our eco-
nomic house in order un-
less we redefine who we are
as people and what kind of
a people we are among the
family of nations. We have
for so long been such a bel-
ligerent, imperialistic na-
tion that we either recon-
nect to what our Founding
Fathers envisioned for
America internationally
or we succumb to what we
have become an arro-
gant, militaristic tyrant that
will inevitably stumble and
fall. A failed state.
Either we get smart as an
electorate and fix our eco-
nomic mess (Social security,
Medicare and our Imperial-
ism appropriations) and
redefine as well our role
internationally or it is just
a matter of time until we
join the rather long list of
"has-been's" in the dust-
bin of history. "My name is
Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look upon my works, ye
Mighty, and despair!"
Either we get rid of our
imperialistic ways or our
empire shall have its re-
venge. It will, literally, con-
sume us all.
Raise your hand now if
you think any meaningful
change is going to happen.
And where, my fellow citi-
zen, will the fault lie? For
the failure of America?

Stop Niagara's
water pumping
Some experts believe our
supply of drinking water
will dry up within a decade.
You, as a homeowner, with
your own well, are restrict-
ed from pumping more
than a few hundred gal-
lons per week as a means
of preserving the aquifer.
Yet a for-profit company,
Niagara Bottling, was given
a permit to pump 484,000
gallons per day. If our citi-
zens are so weak and naive
to let this stand, then they
deserve to be made slaves
to a bureaucratic govern-
ment. When our water sup-


ply dries up, you have only
yourself to blame. It is time
to protect your rights and
your future. Stop this now.

No access to spirituality
Older people do not have
access to religion when
they need it the most.
Whereas Christian resi-
dents of nursing and as-
sisted living facilities can
attend weekly chapel ser-
vices, Jewish residents are
unlikely to receive any reli-
gious opportunities. When
they want to pray or discuss
religious issues who can


they turn to? They may be
facing life and death issues
or grappling with relation-
ships gone awry, personal
secrets and other issues
related to the latter stages
of life.
In the Jewish commu-
nity, few people who have
been members of a con-
gregation throughout their
lives continue their mem-
bership payments while
living in long-term care
facilities. As a result, they
are unlikely to receive visits
from the rabbi or the Social
Action Committee. In many
cases, they feel totally aban-
doned by the Jewish com-


munity.
The Jewish Pavilion of-
fers a unique service to our
elders living in nursing
facilities. Pavilion staff and
volunteers visit 300 Jewish
seniors in the Orlando area
who reside in 44 long-term
care facilities. The agency
also provides intergenera-
tional musical celebrations,
holiday and Sabbath fes-
tivities for residents of all
faiths.
What is so exciting about
the Jewish Pavilion's out-
reach efforts is that seniors
are served no matter where
they reside. Other faith
communities could easily

Victor's voodoo
original short story -

La Scala, on 54th Street,
between 6th and 7th, was a
New York restaurant I hard-
ly ever went into without
seeing someone to speak to,
or to wave at. Of course, Joe
DiMaggio was there at his
table almost every night.
At lunch, Luciano Pa-
varotti was often at a round
table in a corner, some-
times with Sophia Loren.
Luciano, Sophia and I lived
close to each other on Cen-
tral Park South, five blocks
away.
One day a few years ago I
was looking down at a new-
ly-arrived plate of La Scala's
sinfully delicious saltim-
bocca a la Romana, when I
heard a resonant bass voice
say my name.
I looked up quickly, and
there stood Victor Mackie,
a singer I had known well
in Germany. Victor, who
was 10 years my senior, was
born in Glasgow, and, from
age 10, raised in South Af-

rica.
He was singing Wagner
operas in Germany when
World War II broke out.
He had been married a
long time to a German so-
prano. They had a couple
of daughters whom I got
to know when their father
and I sang together in Ham-
burg, where they lived.
How Victor was able to
remain in Germany and
sing opera in the important
theaters during the World
War II era was a mystery.
He was a citizen of a Brit-
ish Empire nation that was
at war with Germany. Most
foreigners who tried such a
stunt would probably have
ended up in a concentra-
tion camp.
Of course, Victor had
spoken Afrikaans all his
life, and his fluent German
sounded like German with
some kind of bucolic dia-
lect. The fact that he had
been married to a German
for many years probably
shielded him from harm.
He once intimated to me
that he had spied for Eng-
land all during the War. I
was never sure if it was true.
It's the kind of story any
American, Frenchman or
Englishman might have
made up after the war as
an excuse for having been
singing on Der Fuhrer's
stages all through the Nazi
years.
When Victor sat down
at my table in La Scala that
day, we had a lot of catch-
ing up to do about the years
since we last sang together,
which was in the Hamburg
Staatsoper. Victor had read
that I was still singing ac-
tively in North America,
France and Italy. When I
asked him about his career,
he said he was looking for
jobs in North American op-
era companies.
It was tough going, he


said.
You see, Victor had al-
ways sung everything in
German, and had confined
his career to Germany, Aus-
tria and Switzerland. He
had never sung in France or
Italy as I had, and therefore
knew nothing in Italian
or French, which are the
languages most sung in big
American opera companies.
I finally got around to ask-
ing him why he wasn't still
singing in Germany.
"That's a weird little sto-
ry, my friend," he said, tak-
ing a swallow of San Pietro
Chianti.
"How's that?" I asked.
"You remember a con-
ductor, named Horst Rad-
zo?"
"Yeah," I said.
"I always thought he was
a third-rate little Nazi runt.
Unpleasant to be around.
Even worse to sing with."
"You said it!"
"Well, I'm a very tall guy,
and he always seemed to
have it in for me. Unluck-
ily, I often had to do the big
Wagner operas with the lit-
tle bastard: 'Meistersinger,'
'Lohengrin,' 'Parsifal,' 'Hol-
lender,' 'Tristan,' 'Tannhius-
er,' 'the Ring,' the whole kit
and caboodle."
"And?" I asked.
"Well, Radzo had a sus-
picion I had spied for Eng-
land during the war. You
know he was in the S.S.,
don't you?"
"I heard that," I said.
"I was ready to call it
quits and go somewhere
I could buy a little land
and become a gentleman
farmer."
"Where?"
"South Africa, or perhaps
out west here in the States."
"What stopped you, Vic-
tor?"
"It was Radzo. The little
bastard finagled a way
to get the Deutsche Biih-


nengenossenschaft to tie
up my retirement money.
Everything I had put away
in my account all through
the years. I can't lay my
hands on a Pfennig."
"How'd he do it?" I asked.
"The singers union is
run by a board, a Verwal-
tung, as you know," he said.
"The people on it are fairly
powerful bureaucrats who
may or may not have been
Nazis. The fact is, they balk
when it comes to paying
out pension money to any
foreigner they think was
against the Vaterland dur-
ing the war."
"Victor, were you a spy?"
I asked.
"It doesn't really matter
anymore," was all he want-
ed to say.
"Where's your wife
now?"
"Hannah she's in Ger-
many. In the Schwarzwald
... Freiburg. She's still a Ger-
man citizen."
"That Radzo was some
Schwein!" I said.
"Well, I must say, I hated
the little Kraut. The way
he'd slink into the Kantine,
wearing his greasy little
black toupee, and take his
coffee all the way back to
his studio, away from us all.
Rehearsals with him used to
disgust me. He was prone to
towering rages. I've heard
that comes from insecurity.
Anyway, he always had to be
right about everything. One
thing: He could never ever
look me in the eye. Anyone
who knows men knows
what that means. He knew
that the whole Frankfurt
Opera was on to him, and
hated his guts."
Victor sucked in another
Schluck of Chianti.
"There's more to the tale

"Oh?"
"Last year I had to go
back to Cape Town ... my


mother died."
"Oh! I'm sorry."
"Yes. Well, she was damn
near 90. In Africa I stayed
with the very dear old fam-
ily retainer who raised me
from a lad an ancient
and spooky black lady who
does fortunes and magic
and that sort of thing."
We called the waiter and
ordered espressos.
"What about her?"
"Well, she told me that
she had once killed a white
man who raped her daugh-
ter."
"Did she get caught?"
"No. According to her,
she killed him simply by
saying some voodoo words
and aiming them his way.
The guy up and died the
next day."
"Coincidence maybe," I
said.
"We'll find out soon
enough."
"How?"
"Simple. I aimed those
words of hers at Radzo last
night. I'll write them down
on this slip of paper for you.
Keep it. You never know..."
Next morning, The New
York Times reported that
conductor Horst Radzo had
collapsed and died while
rehearsing "Walkiire" in the
Berlin Stidtische Oper.
Did that fact make Vic-
tor a murderer?
How could it?
He had only repeated
meaningless syllables of
gibberish.
Yesterday I found Vic-
tor's slip of paper in my
wallet.
On it, nine strange
sounds are printed out pho-
netically.
Now I'm in a quandary...
You see, there is a crook
I detest and with more
than good reason.
Up to now I've never
been able to do anything
about it. Legally, that is...


LETTERS I Florida lost 6 percent of its population of manatees in just the first six weeks of 2010


< continued from previous page

Through Feb. 12, there
have been more than 300
confirmed deaths from all
causes. Of these, 167 have
been attributed to cold
stress. Another 116 deaths
have been labeled as unde-
termined/unrecovered, and
many of these were also
likely caused by cold stress
because of their location
and timing. Based on a syn-
optic survey of 5,076 mana-
tees counted in January,
this year's deaths represent
a loss of 6 percent of the
entire state's population in
just the first six weeks of
the year. These tragic num-
bers come on the heels of
last year's record mortality.
Incredibly, in the last 14
months, at least 729 mana-
tees are known to have died
in state waters. We can only
hope that 2010 does not
bring red tide to our coasts
or another record year for
manatee boat strike deaths
like we saw in 2009, as
these events could result in
hundreds more manatee
deaths. Although cold-re-


lated deaths are considered
a natural cause, the events
of this winter highlight the
vulnerability of our state's
manatee population, and
reinforce the importance of
safeguarding winter habitat
and minimizing human-re-
lated threats to this species.
When we hear countless
news reports of hundreds
of manatees dying from
cold, we can feel powerless
to help. However, there are
a number of actions that
everyone can take to help
safeguard our state's iconic
manatees.
If you live in Florida,
contact your legislators and
ask them not to cut fund-
ing for the manatee critical
care treatment program,
which is a part of the Flor-
ida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission's
(FWC) budget. This money
helps Florida's three criti-
cal care facilities provide
vitally needed emergency
treatment for manatees
injured by boats, entangled,
orphaned or suffering from
cold stress or red tide toxic-
ity. Without this funding,


injured manatees would
needlessly suffer and die.
The staff at these critical
care facilities, along with
staff of the FWC and other
groups, have been working
tirelessly and selflessly to
care for manatees during
this winter's prolonged
cold weather.
Florida's springs provide
natural winter habitat for
Florida's manatees. Re-
duced spring flows caused
by increased human de-
mand for water have de-
creased available habitat at
some of our springs, while
access to other springs has
been reduced or eliminated
by weirs or dams. One
such spring is Silver Spring
in Marion County, which
is the largest of Florida's
springs. Manatees have
completely lost access to
this spring due to the Kir-
patrick (Rodman) dam.
Restoration of the Ockla-
waha River and removal
of the dam would restore
manatee access to Silver
Spring. Unfortunately, this
restoration would be de-
layed at least another 50


years if the Jim King State
Reserve bill passes dur-
ing the spring session of
the Florida Legislature. If
we are going to safeguard
manatees in the long-
term, we need to protect
and enhance their natural
warm-water habitat. Florid-
ians, ask your legislators to
support the Florida Springs
Protection Act this session
(SB568) and vote against
the Jim King State Reserve
bill (SB466/HB695).
If you live in Florida,
or plan to visit the state,
look for ways to decrease
water use to protect water
resources. Every drop of
groundwater or surface
water we use is a drop
we take away from the
manatees' home. The area
hardest hit by this winter's
cold weather was the Ever-
glades. Historically, warm
groundwater would exit
the aquifer through seeps
and small springs and pro-
vide a refuge to manatees
in the Everglades during
winter months. However,
extensive development and
canal dredging have altered


the flow of water over the
last 100 years, decreasing
the availability of these
seeps and springs and leav-
ing manatees at risk.
If you boat on Florida's
waterways, either as a
resident or a visitor, al-
ways be on the lookout for
manatees. Careful boaters
can prevent manatee in-
juries and deaths caused
by watercraft. If you see an
injured or dead manatee,
please immediately contact
FWC's 24-hour hotline at
1-888-404-3922. Manatees
simply cannot afford an-
other year of record water-
craft deaths.
Manatees and Florida's
environment need your
support and your voice.
These simple actions can
make a life-saving differ-
ence for Florida's endan-
gered manatees.
