Winter Park City Commissioner Beth Dillaha, right, defends Amendment 4 at a forum held in Sanford on March 17.

Groups try to sway voters on Hometown Democracy issue


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
If at least 60 percent of citi-
zens vote yes on Amend-
ment 4, any time a govern-
ment voted to stray from
the city's long-term plan-
ning document, citizens
would then be asked if they
agreed with the change.
What would the impact
be? The Seminole County
League of Women Voters'
debate on Hometown De-
mocracy tried to answer
that question on March 17,


pitting some of the state's
biggest proponents both
for and against the amend-
ment in a well-attended
open forum in Sanford.
Proponents say that pol-
iticians, drunk with cam-
paign contributions, have
spent decades permissively
and promiscuously selling
Florida to developers, who
take untouched wilder-
ness and turn it into strip
malls. Opponents say that,
while the latter is true, the
amendment would grid-
lock the state's economy

Manager

nets $1.1M

ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

A former
Winter Park
city manager
has agreed
to a nearly
half million
dollar settle-
ment, ending
a legal suit
that was filed
a week after the city fired
him.
"I'm glad it's behind me
and glad it's behind them,
and I'm sure they feel the
same way," said former City
Manager Jim Williams, now
city manager of neighboring
Maitland.
Williams had been fired
by Winter Park by a contro-
versial 3-2 City Commission
vote on September 2007,
ending his employment
contract early.
Williams' attorney How-
ard Marks filed suit the next
week, arguing that a sever-
ance agreement in his em-
ployment contract entitled
him to as much as $4.4 mil-
lion. Williams had worked
for the city for 34 years, act-
ing as city manager for 13
years.
CommissionersJohn Eck-
bert and Doug Metcalf, who
are no longer with the Com-
mission, led the call for Wil-
liams' firing, accusing him of
inefficient management and
bloated payrolls. The city
had won numerous awards

A portion of the Maitland

"I haven't heard one

Hospital-run thrift store shuts doors

68-year-old White Elephant Thrift Shop
forced out as supermarket expands


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
As early as 1952, a group of
volunteers pooled together
for a one-day sale of furni-
ture and anything else they
could get their hands on.
The goal was simple: Raise
money to build a hospital in
Winter Park.


IT HAD SOME
VERY NICE
HISTORY,
AND WE'RE
SAD TO SEE
IT GO. BUT
THE REALITY
IS RENTAL
SPACE IS
EXPENSIVE.
ANITA BOYD,
DIRECTOR OF VOLUNTEER SERVICES AT
WINTER PARK MEMORIAL HOSPITAL

It became a successful
annual event, but trying
to sell that many goods in
one day eventually became
a gargantuan task. So, from
those annual sales, the Aux-
iliary White Elephant Thrift


Shop in Winter Park settled
in at 2411 Aloma Ave., shar-
ing a shopping plaza with
Publix.
For nearly three decades,
the thrift shop raised mon-
ey for Winter Park Memorial
Hospital, a division of Flor-
ida Hospital. But at the end
of January when their lease
ended, they got notice that
Publix was expanding and
their thrift shop was going
to be part of a parking lot.
On Feb. 28, the nearly 70-
year history of the Auxiliary
White Elephant Thrift shop
came to a bitter close.
"It had some very nice
history, and we're sad to see
it go," said Anita Boyd, the
director of Volunteer Servic-
es at Winter Park Memorial
Hospital. "But the reality is
rental space is expensive."
The hospital had 30 days
to try and find a new loca-
tion, but the story wound
up a little like the story of
Goldilocks and the Three
Bears: some places were too
small, some places were too
big. But they never did find
one that was just right.
Boyd said that, while the
thrift store was consistently
able to pay its bills and do-
nate money to the hospital,
there aren't any plans in the
works to find a new home

Thrift shop manager Joyce Colgan, right, said in April that business was thriving. The closed store has no plans to reopen.


for the White Elephant.
"Not that I'm aware of,
no," Boyd said. "We had to
get rid of all our merchan-
dise. We had to vacate the
space. At this point, to bring
it back would be extremely
difficult. Not only in getting
merchandise, but in finding
space, affordable space."
Boyd said that the clos-
ing has been especially hard
on the more than 30 vol-
unteers who ran the shop.
Carol Rollman volunteered
there for more than seven
years. She used to work with
the American Cancer Soci-


ety and she and a group of
friends used to eat lunch in
the same plaza as the thrift
shop. This was how she
came to find the White El-
ephant.
Rollman said after all the
work the group has done,
donating more than $2 mil-
lion to the hospital, the
thrift shop was closed and
wouldn't be reopened. She
said many of the volunteers
were retired women.
"They looked forward to
coming in," Rollman said.
"That was their out for the
day. It was just sad to see


that they closed it."
In the end, Rollman, who
has mostly done volunteer
work all her life, will move
on. Her experience left her a
little bitter, though.
She's thinking about
working for a Catholic thrift
shop off of Lee Road. She
likes working at thrift shops
- just not hospital ones any-
more.
"It kind of soured me
on the hospital," Rollman
said. "I'm not going to do it
(again). I'll find another or-
ganization."

Thank you for the trust you have given me to lead
Winter Park as your new commissioner. Thank you

MAITLAND CITY COUNCILMAN ,

block is the former Winn-Dixie site
and the adjacent Royal Plaza, both
on Highway 17-92.
The foreclosure has led Maitland
City Councilman Phil Bonus to pre-
dict that the company will fall into
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.
Bonus has tried three times, to no
avail, to garner enough votes on
the Council to terminate the city's
agreement with Reese.
That streak could change as How-


ard Scheiferdecker prepares to re-
place Councilman Jeff Flowers, who
is term-limited out, at the second
meeting in April. Schieferdecker has
publicly said he would consider ter-
minating the agreement.
"You're looking at three members
of council who are being obstinate,
who are refusing to do what staff
is dictating and forcing the city to
expose itself to the risk of Reese's
bankruptcy," Bonus said.
Monday's meeting, where the de-
veloper's agreement was again going
to be considered, was canceled after
Flowers suddenly couldn't make the
meeting. There must be three coun-
cil members in attendance, but with
Mayor Doug Kinson and Council-
woman Linda Frosch in Washington,
D.C. the meeting fell through. Bonus
has accused Flowers of intentional-
ly breaking the quorum to keep the
vote from happening.
"To destroy a quorum [Monday]
night by Flowers is unconscionable,"
Bonus said.
When asked about Bonus' com-
ments, Flowers laughed. He said the
accusation that he intentionally de-
stroyed the quorum is completely
unfounded.
Flowers said he was on vacation
the week before, and Monday was
his first day back. He said there was
a bid due for a contract for his busi-
ness, and he had to get the bid in or
they wouldn't be competitive.
"The question has been asked
and answered by this city council
- repeatedly," Flowers said about
the attempt to end the developer's
agreement. "It's foolish. It's not good
government. When you lose a vote,
you walk away and do something
different. You don't keep hitting the
same nail."

Wildcats downed on the diamond
After leading most of their game against Oviedo, the Wildcats watched a comeback turn into an upset


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Winter Park baseball
team fell to 7-5 on the sea-
son thanks to a comeback
shocker by the Oviedo Lions
(5-8) in the bottom of the
seventh inning.
The Wildcats had domi-
nated in the game up to that
point, putting runners on
base with ease as they bat-
ted around the order. But
the Cats had trouble getting
those batters across home
plate, as the Lions shut them
down just in time despite
several innings of rallies.
Heading into the 7th in-
ning the Wildcats held a 3-2
lead, which they hadn't re-
linquished since the start of
the game.


But with runners on
board and in scoring posi-
tion in the 7th, the situation
turned dangerous for Win-
ter Park in a hurry. Oviedo's
Blake Mitchell smacked a
base-clearing hit to drive
in two runs and swing the
score in favor of the Lions.
The Lions would hold on to
win the upset, handing the
Wildcats yet another loss.
TheWildcatshaddropped
a 12-7 decision to Timber
Creek on Friday, despite Dy-
lan Price's 2-for-4 perfor-
mance, including a two-run
shot and a double.
After a showdown against
Bishop Moore at press time,
the Wildcats host Apopka at
7 p.m. Thursday. This will be
the two teams' first meeting
this season.

Despite strong pitching that held the Lions back in the early innings, Winter Park left the door open in the seventh. Oviedo capi-
talized on a two-run swing to take the lead and win the game, dropping the Wildcats to 7-5 this season. They host Apopka Thursday.


But it made us a better bank.

Today we are well-capitalized, a truly solid and reliable
Central Florida financial institution.

Knights sweep Presbyterian

Three-game dominating performance by UCF leads the team toward conference play this weekend


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
A nine-run second inning
set up a blowout for the
Knights, as they easily de-
feated Presbyterian 10-2
Sunday.
The win made a three-
game sweep of the Blue
Hose, and catapulted the
Knights to a 13-8 record
overall.
UCF had already socked
it to the Hose in 15-1 and
6-1 routs Friday and Satur-
day before turning to their
big bats again to deliver the
final blow on Sunday.
And in the second in-
ning, the Knights delivered,
going on a nine-run scoring
barrage that included two
homeruns.
It was a long inning for
the Hose, who watched some
early pitching mistakes turn


into a long run of hits for
the Knights. After four runs
scored on three singles and
a sacrifice fly, Jonathan
Griffin blasted a shot that
crossed the street over the
left field fence, clearing the
bases and bringing the score
to 7-0.
Two batters later, Ryan
Breen was up for his second
at-bat of the inning. Three
pitches later, he sent anoth-
er shot over the left field wall
to bring the score to 9-0.
The devastating rally left
Presbyterian stunned. The
Knights' Joe Rogers took
care of the rest, holding the
Hose to zero earned runs in
five innings from the start,
striking out two in the pro-
cess.
Rogers' record improved
to 3-0 with the win.
After traveling to Miami
at press time, the Knights


will take the long trip to
Houston for a three-game
series to open Conference
USA play starting at 7:30 p.m.
Friday. They'll return home
against Bethune Cookman
at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Rollins Tars
The Rollins Tars fell to 19-10
after falling twice to Florida
Tech at home last weekend.
They fell in a 19-2 blowout
in Game 1 before nearly ex-
acting revenge in a narrow
6-5 loss Sunday.
Tim Griffin pitched 4.2
hitless innings in relief Sun-
day while his team mounted
a comeback, but the Tars'
bats weren't enough.
The Tars travel to face
Nova Southeastern this
weekend, and then they re-
turn home against Saint Leo
at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Knights and the Blue Hose on Sunday. UCF went on to sweep the three-game series.


SETTLEMENT I Williams said he's satisfied after $490,000 settlement with city


< continued from the front page

for management during
Williams' term.
Winter Park's current
city manager, Randy Knight,
said that the total amount
paid to Williams, including
the recent settlement, was
about $1.1 million.
"Clearly this was a busi-
ness decision to try to miti-


gate the risk of him getting
some type of award, includ-
ing paying for all of ours and
their attorney fees for the
next year," Knight said.
At Monday's City Com-
mission meeting City Attor-
ney Larry Brown gave the
city one last chance to ob-
ject to the agreement that
would give Williams a settle-
ment payment of $490,000.


"If the Commission is immediately to accept the vote, had voted in favor of


comfortable with it, I cer-
tainly would recommend
it," Brown said, after im-
ploring the Commission to
meet with him in a special
executive session to discuss
the settlement in detail.
The Commission, includ-
ing two first-time commis-
sioners, Carolyn Cooper
and Tom McMacken, voted


settlement.
Incidentally two com-
missioners who ended their
terms at the beginning of
the meeting, Margie Bridges
and Karen Diebel, had both
been present on the Com-
mission that voted to fire
Williams. Bridges had vot-
ed against the firing, while
Diebel, acting as a swing


his termination.
Williams said he's happy
to end the legal battle with
his former employers.
"Sometimes you settle
things and sometimes you
don't," Williams said. "I
think we both are satisfied."

AMENDMENT I Opponents argue that Amendment 4 could create more sprawl


< continued from the front page

visor of Elections Mike Ertel
was there as a neutral panel-
ist to answer technical ques-
tions, and Winter Park City
Commissioner Beth Dillaha
was also on the panel in fa-
vor of the amendment.

quite a long time," Dillaha
said, "particularly when it
comes to approving proj-
ects that don't conform
with land-use policies that
have a negative impact on
communities."


First the basics: Cities
and counties have had com-
prehensive plans since the
1980s, a response to over-
developing of the state. The
idea was to lock in the fu-
ture growth of the city in a
document, which would be
updated every seven years.
If you wanted to build,
you had to build within
the comprehensive plan.
The problem, though,
is that when developers
want to build something
that doesn't fit within the
long-term plan, they ask
the city to change the plan,
and frequently they get the
change.
Enter Hometown De-
mocracy. When your elect-
ed officials decide to stray
from that plan, voters in
the entire city or county
would then be asked if they
agree or disagree with said
change.
"They (developers) are
terrified of the people hav-
ing the final say," Blackner
said. "They know they have
abused the public trust. This
is really an intervention.
They have been driving
drunk with the state for too
long, and the people have to
take the keys back."
Houck said that for every
complex problem, there's a
solution that is clear, simple
and wrong.
"That's exactly what we
have here," Houck said. "It's
a proposal that may be very
well-intentioned, but ulti-
mately has dramatic side
effects which are extremely
costly."
Houck said that annu-
ally in Florida, there are
between 6,000 and 11,000


changes to comprehensive
plans, and many of them are
dense, technical changes.
He pointed to Orange City,
where, in 2005, the over-
haul of their comprehen-
sive plan would have been
a 47-page ballot with 500
questions for voters.
"This proposal could
potentially lead to more
sprawl, not less," Houck said.
"It doesn't empower home-
owners associations or citi-
zens groups, but ultimately
it empowers those with the
deepest pocketbooks, be-
cause what this does is turn
every sound planning deci-
sion into a sound bite."


Dillaha, conversely,
pointed to the Carlisle Proj-
ect in Winter Park, which
gathered the ire of the pub-
lic but was approved by the
City Commission. Eventu-
ally, the plans weren't final-
ized, the city was sued and
had to spend $3.7 million in
a settlement with the devel-
oper.
"Ryan talks about
Amendment 4 turning plan-
ning into politics," Blackner
said. "Well guess what, my
friends, land use is politics.
And we're saying the wrong
people are in charge of the
politics right now."

The article "E-mail spurs controversy" in the March 18 edition of the Observer incorrectly defined Friends of First Response-Maitland's relationship with
the city of Maitland. The nonprofit does not receive funding from the city.

The community bulletin section on March 18 misidentified Michael O'Shaughnessy's place of residence. He is a former resident of Winter Park who now
lives in Ponce Inlet.

A caption accompanying the article "Building a Home" on March 18 may have misled the reader about how the Mahants received their Habitat for
Humanity home. Mother Eliana Mahant put in about 500 hours of "sweat equity," which acted as the family's deposit for the home.

Maitland City Talk
BY DOUGLAS T. KINSON
MAYOR


Maitland's west side

on the move!


Our city's west side gains
momentum finally!
Since first taking office in
2006, one of my highest
priorities was bringing
focus and attention to
Maitland's west side.
Maitland Center, one of
Central Florida's largest
suburban office parks at
nearly 7 million square
feet, is located within the
boundaries of the city.
With its large tax
base, Maitland Center
has helped subsidize all
that Maitland provides
in terms of services. But
along with the benefits
comes the responsibility
of appropriate planning
as the center ages. As
newer suburban parks in
surrounding communities
grow, they become serious


competition, especially
considering Maitland
Center is nearing 30 years
in age.
The major issue is one of
valuation and assessments.
As vacancies increase,
commercial properties
are less able to generate
past revenue levels and
assessments decrease. As
properties are assessed
for less, they generate less
taxable revenue, having
a negative impact on
Maitland's ability to provide
services at levels previously
realized.
The only way to
counteract this aging
impact is to appropriately
plan for our west side's
future. Although I have
concentrated on this
for four years, I have


just recently found
confidence in that the
re-master planning of
Maitland Center could be
in place prior to the end
of my tenure as mayor of
Maitland.
Although I have
discussed the master
planning of the
redevelopment of Maitland
Center in every annual
strategic planning session,
it was not until July of 2008
that Maitland initiated an
extensive public review
and evaluation of the
city's Comprehensive
Plan through a process
called the Evaluation
and Appraisal Report,
affectionately called the
'EAR', which included our
city's west side.
With the state of
Florida's approval of the
EAR on Jan. 12, 2009,
this began in motion
the process of re-master
planning for Maitland's
west side. Not skipping a
beat, Maitland selected
a consultant team led by
AECOM to prepare the
Maitland West Side Master
Redevelopment Plan. The
team members include
both local and national
technical experts RCLCO,
Kimley-Horn Associates


and Looney Ricks Kiss
Architects.
In three short months,
the team analyzed the
existing physical conditions
of the study area,
benchmarked local real
estate market influences
and national trends,
conducted interviews
with stakeholders and city
staff, and led a visioning
workshop resulting in a
series of recommendations
on land-use policies,
capital improvements, and
implementation strategies.
Finally, our city's west
side is on the move!
On March 18 a joint
workshop was held with
City Council and the
Planning and Zoning
Commission to get an
update and receive
comments on the status of
the effort. To put it lightly,
I was blown away by the
presentation with the
thoroughness, complexity
and direction of the effort.
Specifically, the level of
analysis regarding property
uses throughout Maitland
Center was just short of
absolute brilliance. The
Keller Road corridor in
the presented plan would
become a major area of
influence, with businesses

BOARD APPLICATIONS
DEADLINE APRIL 1
The City of Winter Park has


21 citizen boards that meet
on a regular basis to help
the City Commission make
decisions about various
aspects of our city. These
boards provide an outlet
that can channel passion
into actual city policy, and
service on a board is one of
the best ways to sustain the
things that are treasured
and promote change in
areas needed.
In May, the Mayor will
nominate candidates to
fill vacant board positions
and the City Commission
will vote on them. If you
are interested in serving
as a board member, please
visit www.cityofwinterpark.
org > under Government
> Boards to review the
types of boards the city
offers and to submit your
application. Applications to
be considered for the 2010
board member vacancies
must be submitted by
Thursday, April 1.

PLEASE PARDON OUR
DIGGING, WE'RE
ENHANCING OUR
CITY'S TREASURE
The city will begin Phase I
of its renovations to Central
Park from Morse Boulevard
to New England Avenue
beginning in late March
2010. Phase II, between
Morse Boulevard and
Garfield Avenue, will begin
after the Olde Fashion 4th
of July Celebration and will
be completed well before
the large string of events
that occur in the fall.
Renovations will
include replacing the
current lighting with new
decorative light posts,
installing a new electrical
system, replacing the
irrigation with more
water-efficient equipment,
laying new sod, and adding
new landscaping that
will spruce up the natural
beauty of the park.

and residences living
together in a completely
accessible and walkable
environment. In addition,
public biking and walking
pathways have been
suggested, which provide
pedestrian circulation
and take full advantage
of the area's lakes and
environmental features,
such as Lake Lucien, whose
beauty residents never see.
But let's not get too
excited as this master
planning redevelopment
effort will play itself out
over years and probably
decades.
The beginnings are
something all of us can be
incredibly excited about.
In fact, when you see the
plan, you might even get a
tingling of goose bumps,
just like I did the first time I
saw the plan! I look forward
to the months to come,
when the plan will begin
to take shape, giving us a
glimpse of what Maitland's
west side will grow to
become!
Don't miss the
opportunity to be a part of
Maitland's future!

PHOTOS BY ISAAC BABCOCK AND BRITTNI JOHNSON OBSERVER STAFF
Marines Hoppes uses salt to help her patients, who suffer from maladies ranging from asthma to cystic fibrosis. The ancient therapy is a hallmark of The Salt Room.

The Salt Room in Orlando offers salt therapy, an ancient remedy said to help with respiratory ailments


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
Anywhere Katelyn Tins-
ley went, an oxygen tank
followed. The 22-year-old
Winter Park resident suf-
fers from cystic fibrosis and
is waiting on a double lung
transplant.
After being in the hospi-
tal for weeks and on oxygen
nonstop, she decided to try
salt therapy. She said she
has been going to The Salt


Room in Orlando for a few
weeks and has seen big re-
sults. After one session her
lungs felt clearer, after a few
more she was off the oxygen
tank completely.
"It's priceless to give her
any sort of relief at all," said
her father, Tim Tinsley.
The Salt Room is hop-
ing to help reduce its cli-
ents' breathing problems
through an ancient remedy.
Reliefcomes from a room.
It's covered with salt it's
on the walls, the ceiling, it
softly crunches underfoot. A
light clean smell, much like
a chlorinated pool, fills the
air. Reclining chairs, tran-
quil music and dim lights
are set up, giving the room
a spa-like atmosphere. The
Salt Room is the fourth of
only seven facilities in the
U.S. that specialize in halo-
therapy the therapeutic
use of salt.
Orlando is totally ready
for this "new" remedy, said
Marines Hoppes, director of
The Salt Room.
"More people in the Unit-
ed States are looking for al-


ternatives," she said.
And once Hoppes, an al-
lergy sufferer, had experi-
enced the healing effects
of the therapy herself, she
knew that the business was
a smart idea. "I was sold; we
could tell that it worked."
The healing properties
of salt for respiratory prob-
lems have been believed by
Europeans for hundreds of
years, and now the natural
salt caves used there are be-
ing recreated in the United
States. Once in the adult
salt room there's also
one for children with toys
to play with clients are
encouraged to lay back and
breathe deeply. Microscopic
salt particles are then blown
into the air. The salt therapy
is said to give relief from ev-
eryday issues such as a cold
and allergies to more seri-
ous conditions like cystic
fibrosis.
Though Hoppes and
owner Ashley Lewless don't
encourage this as the only
treatment for their clients,
there is some backup to
what some might call "new


age hype" about halothera-
py. A 2006 study published
in the New England Journal
of Medicine found that salt
inhalation was an effective
additional treatment for
cystic fibrosis.
Katelyn Tinsley attests to
that finding.
"If it didn't work then
I wouldn't keep going be-
cause I have so many other
doctor appointments and
other maintenance I have to
do to keep myself healthy. I
wouldn't add something to
the list if it didn't make a
clear difference," she said.
Katelyn's doctor is now
looking into the effects of
the therapy and has done
a session himself.
Lewless and Hoppes have
both found that halothera-
py works for them. Hoppes'
allergies have always both-
ered her, and medicine nev-
er helped. Her daughter also
suffers from allergies, but
after receiving salt therapy,
Hoppes hasn't had to give
her allergy medication in
three weeks.
Winter Park resident Jill


Hartman's 7-year-old son,
Jake, has autism and suffers
from a lot of upper respira-
tory issues. She takes him to
The Salt Room several times
a week. Hartman said it's
helped with his congestion
and he doesn't cough dur-
ing the day or night when
he gets salt therapy.
"It makes me feel great
and it keeps me coming
back," she said. "A happy
child equals a happy mom-
my."
Lewless loves the feed-
back she gets.
"It's so exciting. Just hear-
ing the stories almost makes
me tear up," she said.

"Should I Convert to a Roth-IRA?"
Sweeping U.S. Tax Law Changes for Roth-IRA beginning Jan 1, 2010
favor doing a Roth-IRA Conversion in 2010 to get additional tax-free
income that can stretch your retirement money further.
SCome to a FREE SEMINAR for answers to questions like these
that could save you thousands in tax-free retirement income...
Bob Adams, President of A SafeHarbor, LLC
Educating and assisting Central Florida's seniors for 20+ years!
A Master Member of Ed Slott's Elite IRA Advisor Groupm

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)

Musical superstars

China's superstar
visits Orlando
Most of us first heard about
Lang Lang as we watched
the Opening Ceremonies of
the Beijing Olympics, and it
was obvious that the flam-
boyant pianist is a huge
star in his native China.
Now the Festival of Orches-
tras a local organization
that has been bringing the
greatest orchestras of the
world to Central Florida
for more than 20 years -


is bringing this superstar
pianist to the Bob Carr to
give us the chance to hear
(and see) him perform live.
The date is Saturday, March
27, and Lang Lang will join
Maestro Christoph Eschen-
bach and the Schleswig
Holstein Festival Orchestra
in a dream of a symphony
program offering favorites
for everyone who truly
appreciates classical mu-
sic. The program includes
Prokofiev's Symphony No.

Paper collage art
The art of torn paper col-

respect it deserves, but that
is certainly not the case
with master collage artist
Derek Gores. Gores has re-

for his collage portrait se-

to the "Inaugural Exhibi-

contrasts natural beauty
with Gores' angular design

Too good to miss
The rock group OK Go is
as famous for their videos
as they are for their mu-
sic. In their latest venture,
the group created a four-
minute video with the help
of a troop of engineers
(who volunteered their
time) and the whole thing
was shot by one camera in
one continuous take (very,
very difficult). Admittedly
they tried about 60 times
before it finally all worked,
but the important thing
is they did it. The video
has only been out a couple
of weeks and it is already
a huge hit worldwide. And
kissing the almighty dollar
goodbye, the group liter-
ally parted company with
their record producer so
they could give it to the
world at no cost! How cool

What? No par?


I wonder a bit about those
claiming they don't keep
score. Not so much in
the win/loss column but
in some reflective "total
scheme of life" manner.
What we all have is time.
Some assert that if we live
a particular way or believe
a particular notion, time is
endless. No matter how ap-
pealing that idea, I cannot
subscribe. As much as our
emotions may desire our


bodies (and minds) will
deny. Consciousness is tem-
porary, fleeting and far too
short.
We're all on track (birth
to death) so keeping score
ought to be a relatively
straight-forward process.
But we are not issued; we
are not born with a helpful
scorecard. We tee up for the
18 holes of life and soon
discover there is no par.
Wouldn't it be far eas-


ier if each of us was born
tightly clutching a tiny
scorecard in his or her little
hand? Birth would be our
first hazard and no matter
how well we shot the "rap-
ids", mom would record
and deliver our first score.
So we trek through life,
frequently without a clue,
not only looking for mean-
ing but searching for the
"way" to live as well. Most
of us come to grips (denial/
acceptance) with the tran-
sitory nature of our exis-
tence. Absent, however, is
the universal scorecard.
Ralph Waldo Emerson's
essay on "compensation"
prompted this little treatise.
Emerson is writing, to a de-
gree, about score keeping.
Reread Emerson's essays for
a jolt of sanity.
I believe time is a river
that for awhile we travel.
By what benchmarks do


we evaluate that journey?
By our physical possessions
- what we have accumu-
lated? Our knowledge? Our
effort? Our passions? By
compensation? Or, by any
meaning we simply give it
(our lives)?
"How am I doing,
Coach?"
Compared to what? One
of the misfortunes (a sad-
ness) of human life is our
apparent need to compare
ourselves with/to oth-
ers. We are so wrapped-up
in "keeping up with the
Jones," not only in mate-
rial possessions, but we
unthinkingly adopt their
shopworn ideas and absurd
values as well.
Tragically and comically,
we track our lives on some-
one else's scorecard.
We are born with a song
in our hearts that is unique
and distinctive. We are!


Some of us sing early. Some
of us sing late. Some of us
never sing and some of us
have their song beaten out
of them. For the most part
we write our own scores
and for some it's "three
strikes and you're out," and
for others, it's an "Ode to
Joy!"
We are born like water
poured into a teakettle, and
as we boil along and vapor
away, we sing our songs. We
do, however, pick the song
we sing.
And that, my fellow
choir member, is the most
important score of all to
track.

Can you imagine if every-

One in five Americans is

FCC abandoning indecency
as TV gets more graphic
For many months, the big-
gest battle confronting
Congress has been over
plans for health care re-
form; yet no one from ei-
ther party has mentioned
one of the gravest threats to
the mental health of Ameri-
can children: television.
The Surgeon General's 2001
report cited statistical links
between television watch-
ing and violent behavior
similar in strength to the


evidence linking smoking
and lung cancer. Last year,
the average child living in
the U.S. watched 12,000
murders, assaults and other
violent acts on television
- and that number is still
rising. And yet, the Federal
Communications Com-
mission is doing nothing
to curb violence or other
harmful content on TV.
The FCC was created by
Congress in the Commu-
nications Act of 1934. As
part of its mission, the FCC
is required to ensure that
television and radio sta-
tions, which hold licenses
to use the publicly-owned
broadcast airwaves, do so in
a manner compatible with
"the public interest, conve-
nience and necessity."
This is crucial: According
to the law, the American
people own the broadcast
airwaves. Local stations and
television networks do not.
They are permitted to use
those airwaves only so long
as they do so "in the public
interest." A major part of
that "interest" includes not
using public property to
force content distasteful
or even offensive to some
members of society into
their homes. Rules against
indecency on the public air-
waves have been settled law
in the U.S. for more than
40 years; and, as the federal
agency charged with regu-
lating broadcasters and the
use of the airwaves, it is the
FCC's job to enforce those
laws.
But the FCC is refusing to
do so!
The FCC today is trying
to extend its reach into ar-
eas that Congress has not
authorized. Yet they are
ignoring the responsibility
that Congress has expressly
assigned to them: enforc-
ing broadcast decency laws.
The FCC continues to turn


a deaf ear to the pleas of
millions of families across
the country families who
have asked the Commission
to step in and take an active
role in upholding decency
standards for broadcasters.
Back in 2004, the PTC
- backed by demands of
citizens like you! got
Congress to increase fines
against indecent program-
ming from a measly, mean-
ingless $27,500 to half a
million dollars per offense!
The House of Representa-
tives voted for this increase
by a 10-to-1 margin; and
the Senate voted for it
unanimously!
American families have
the right not to be assaulted
in their own living rooms
with indecent content.
Congress has oversight
power on the FCC. By writ-
ing, phoning or e-mailing
their senators and con-
gressmen, Americans can
demand that the FCC fulfill
its responsibility to uphold
the law not with vague
promises, but by announc-
ing a specific timeframe for
addressing the 1.6 million
outstanding indecency
complaints.

Focus in on jobs
in Legislature
I'd like to update you on my
last article on the proposed
budget from the governor.
The total amount that the
governor proposes the
state spend for next year is
$69.2 billion, an increase
more than the $66 billion
allocated for the current
fiscal year. When I first took
office in 2006, our state
budget was $73 billion;
however the economic tur-
moil over the last few years


has certainly taken its toll
on the state. Out of the ma-
jor policy areas, the break-
down is as follows for "The
People's Budget":
3.1 percent allocated
to Environment
2.6 percent allocated
to General Government
0.6 percent allocated
to the Legislature/Governor
7.5 percent allocated
to Public Safety
14.1 percent allocated
for transportation and eco-
nomic development.
The governor's pro-
posed budget requests an
allocation of $21.5 billion
for education (31.1 percent
of his budget proposal)
and $28.4 billion for health
and human services (41.1
percent of his budget pro-
posal). As you can see, 72.2
percent of next year's bud-
get as proposed by the gov-
ernor is for the state's two
core missions.
The governor's budget
outlines his paramount
concerns about ensur-
ing Floridians are finding
gainful employment and
striving to make businesses
stronger. The governor is
proposing a 1 percent re-
duction on the corporate
income tax rate on the first
$1 million of a corpora-
tion's taxable income while
also providing for a 10-day
back to school sales tax
holiday as in previous years.
This tax holiday, accord-
ing to the governor, will
help Florida's families save
on school essentials such
as clothing and supplies
while also stimulating the
economy.
The governor's proposed
budget places a strong
emphasis on funding edu-
cation, with an estimated
$22.7 billion to be allocated
for Pre-K-12 education
and a 2.61 percent increase
for public per-student


funding. He is also calling
for increased funding for
community colleges and
universities. His budget
also calls for continued
funding for the continued
steady decrease of Florida's
prison population, while
also looking to preserve
Florida's abundant natural
resources.
His optimism about
Florida's economic future is
one to admire, and I com-
mend him for his contin-
ued dedication to educa-
tion and health and human
services. While his budget is
certainly fiscally optimistic
with the inclusion of an
unconfirmed $1 billion in
aid from the federal gov-
ernment and $400 million
from a gambling compact,
we in the Florida House
must continue to be more
diligent in our concentrat-
ed efforts on ensuring the
budget is balanced fairly
and properly the first time.
If this is not accomplished,
we risk having to reduce
the budget mid-year and
possibly causing disrup-
tions in certain programs
and agencies.
It is important to re-
member that the key to
Florida's economic recov-
ery will be jobs, jobs, jobs.
I, along with my colleagues
in the Florida House, will
continue to focus on job
creation and economic
development during the
legislative session. I wel-
come your feedback. If you
are interested in learning
more about the governor's
proposed budget or have
any other questions or con-
cerns, please do not hesi-
tate to contact my office at
407-884-2023. As always, it
is an honor to serve you.

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

A dream
opens shudders
factual fiction -
Life scares me to death!
I tremble in the face
of clairvoyance that
surpasses understanding.
I have had premonitions
that are coming true with
startling significance.
I guess you'll think I need
a shrink when I tell you
about this terrifying dream
that shook me to the core.
You see, I dreamed that
life in America was being
controlled from above by a
mighty unseen hand and
it wasn't the hand of God!
This all-powerful hand
was leading our American
publicpersona inexorably
to the left, although our
people had always been
moderate politically.
I dreamed that we had
somehow put a leftist in the
White House a guy who
had never exhibited much
enthusiasm for us, or our
country. Moreover, this guy
had had next to no political


Thursday, March 25, 2010 Page 15


experience, and had never
run anything, not even a
newsstand. He had only a
clever lust for power.
With him as Leader, we
were in a perilous situation.
In my dream, Americans
did not notice the rug be-
ing pulled from under their
feet.
The Leader saw America
as a prize to be taken, booty
to be snitched.
He got his results by us-
ing everything from ma-
nipulation to violent arm-
twisting. His shifty morality
ruled out productive nego-
tiation.
It was scary the way he
seemed to ignore right and
wrong.
The Constitution was
not a document in his mor-
al library.
How did the American
people, always conscious of
its own morality, live on the
same planet with this mis-
creant?
Before this narcissist
was elected, he had gone
abroad and spit on our na-
tional image wherever he
went.
His cure for his mad
spending sprees was to
charge 10 times more on
our bill. The U.S. public was
being hoodwinked into in-
surmountable debt. Some
savants warned us that the
Leader's Soros-concocted
plans would flatten us fi-
nancially. Our precarious
position was on all our
minds. Our debts were in a
financial stratosphere defy-
ing any known tape mea-
sure.
Patriotism had become a
dirty word.
As high school kids in
football, we loved saluting
the flag before the games.
In the war, the flag on
our ship reminded us of
those we were protecting
by killing the enemy.
When it was all over, I,


a two-stripe lieutenant,
knelt down and kissed
the ground when I disem-
barked in San Diego.
In my dreams, American
individualism was replaced
by an ideological system we
had historically abhorred.
Did my dream accurately
identify subversive powers
aimed at tearing our coun-
try apart?
Who would gain the
most from the destruction
of U.S. capitalism?
Of course, Marxism
inspires foreign powers -
even domestic "lefties" to
dream of overtaking the
U.S. any way they can.
Could a corrupt leftist
federal government take
over our private enterprise
from within?
In my "bad dream," we
had elected a Leader who
was of Marxist background,
beliefs and education to pi-
lot the greatest democracy
in the world.
In a perilous recession,
hadn't our Leader then
spent more taxpayers' dol-
lars than all previous U.S.
presidents combined?
Wasn't our Treasury secre-
tary giving short shrift to
banks that needed help?
Did we citizens really know
where our money was go-
ing? Did we know where
our country was going?
In my dream, our Lead-
er's unprecedented trans-
fer of taxpayers' money
into various unidentifiable
governmental areas was
accomplished in an at-
mosphere of urgency, and
lightning-fast sleight-of-
hand that rapidly swelled
our government and its
debt beyond recognition.
A $787-billion Stimulus
Bill crafted by Congress was
passed in a rush without
anyone having had time to
read it!
During his campaign
our Leader forswore "ear-


marks." However, his
ensuing hotly-contested
$410-billion "Omnibus" bill,
signed by him inprivate,
contained thousands of
earmarks thus our Leader
confirmed himself to be the
"liar" that his reputation
had presaged.
The transference of pri-
vate industry and wealth
into government hands
was an act of unmitigated
Marxism.
Where were theprom-
ised five-day online displays
of unpassed bills, and the
transparency of all bills' in-
tricate contents?
This "nightmare" of
mine took place at a
uniquely vulnerable time
in our history, when both
our House and Senate were
dominated by Democrats
and the government had
but one public voice.
The Democrats were
buying votes using every
available political currency
and trick.
In my "nightmare," I saw
the ways being employed to
"level" our mighty Ameri-
can democracy to a third-
rate nation. I pulled out a
dollar and was surprised
that Washington's picture
was not replaced by Karl
Marx.
To round out these lam-
entable facts, my dream
foretold:
1. The debauching of the
American monetary system,
destroying the stability of
the dollar, and the integrity
of our various security ex-
changes,
2. Further outsourcing
of American industry and
means of production,
3. Further dumbing-
down of American educa-
tion by engaging left-wing
teachers at all levels,
4. Further cooperation
with Hollywood left-wing-
ers who produce America-
low-rating films,


5. Further leftists'
takeover of all available
American media outlets to
promulgate every socialist-
leaning political cause and
candidate,
6. Further loss of tradi-
tional self-sufficiency, re-
sponsibility, accountability,
civility and patriotism in
American daily life,
7. Further opening of
American borders to illegal
immigration,
8. The Democrats' overt
push to create votes in all
elections by granting citi-
zenship to illegal aliens,
9. Further Congressional
promotion of Union ballot
secrecy,
10. Further inexorable
erosion of our revered U.S.
Constitution,
11. Continued debauch-
ing of American culture,
morality, and the English
language.
My "nightmare" ended
with the U.S. a dumbed-
down, "socialist-led soci-
ety" ripe for inclusion in
a North American Union
alongside Mexico and
Canada, all soon to be swal-
lowed up in a Global Union
of low-rate, faceless social-
ist states. Those days, the
quality of leadership had
become a paramount fac-
tor.
Lots of the things we had
been doing up to that time
now seemed to fall into
place at Dream's End.
I wake suddenly, wet
with sweat. I shower, and
get dressed. I walk outside
into a beautiful, free Amer-
ica.
I ask myself, "How long
will our country remain
a place for the pursuit of
universal freedom and hap-
piness?"
The answer is nowhere
in sight...

The Russian Ballet of Orlando Presents
An International Ballet Gala
Celebrating Its 10th Anniversary of Season Performances
Friday, April 30,7:30 pm
Northland Church, Longwood, FL
The Russian Ballet of Orlando will celebrate its 10th
anniversary with a very special evening of international
classical and contemporary music and dance featuring
world-renowned ballet professionals. Founded by
Ukrainian Artistic Director and Choreographer Vadim
Fedotov and his talented family in May 2000, the Russian
Academy of Ballet has offered the only true Russian
Method Ballet School in Central Florida and has become a unique cultural
treasure to the community. The Gala program will include music by
such Russian composers as Tchaikovsky, Minkus, Glazunov, Prokofiev,
Tchedrin, Polish composer Pavlovski, French composer Adam, as well as
American composers Gershwin and Bernstein. Excerpts from classical
ballets such as Raymonda, Le Corsaire, Romeo & Juliet, Carmen, Don
Quixote, Cinderella and contemporary dance pieces Gershwin Greats
and West Side Story will bring together ballet stars from Russia, Spain,
The Ukraine, the Czech Republic and the United States.
Fedotov began his career in the Ukraine as a ballet dancer for The
National Theater of the Ukraine. He has performed and served as a
ballet master around the world and has earned the title of Laureate of
International Ballet Competition for Choreographers in the Ukraine and
Russia with two gold medals and a silver medal. Fedotov originally
came to the United States 13 years ago to choreograph Nutcracker on Ice
for Cypress Gardens and quickly made the decision to bring his world-
renowned ballet star wife Irina Depler and their family to America to
open their own school at the Plaza Theater on Bumby Avenue in May
2000.
Over the last 10 years, the academy has brought professional instructors
and dancers from various companies around the world to work with
the students at the Academy and to perform in Fedotov's originally
choreographed performances.
