Reese files

bankruptcy
ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER
The paperwork that stopped
the sale of the Maitland Town
Center reached the court 58
minutes before the property
auction was scheduled to be-
gin.
The developer, Bob Reese,
was on the verge of a restruc-
turing deal with lenders, but
one of the lenders pre-
sumably Mercantile Bank -
wouldn't grant him a 30-day
extension, a Monday press
release from Reese's devel-
opment company said.
That is, ultimately, what
led to the Chapter 11 filing
on Friday. In the release, the
developers assured citizens
that the two public parts of
the downtown the new
fire station and the new city
hall wouldn't be affected
by the bankruptcy
They also said anyone else
coming into the mix would
likely result in piecemeal
development of the 1.4 mil-
lion square-foot downtown,
which, according to the de-
veloper, is expected to bring
in 7,000 permanent jobs.

Holler makes way for college

Four car dealerships will relocate by January 2013; Seminole State will expand

Lynn Colon has had her fin-

a while, but the Seminole
State College dean's dream
of expanding her Altamon-

come true.
"This is the perfect time,"
Colon said. "[Colleges] are in
high demand right now and
it's part of our responsibility
in the community to pro-
vide those opportunities."
Seminole State College's
board of trustees agreed
March 19 to pay $22.5 mil-

occupied by Holler-Classic

ships, owned by RCJ of Win-

Seminole State President
E. Ann McGee was unavail-

college provided a written
statement.
"This is a once-in-a-life-
time agreement that po-
sitions Seminole State to
serve thousands of addi-
tional students for decades
to come," McGee said in the
statement.
McGee said more park-
ing will be added soon, and
in three years, the college

to 40 acres and add about
90,000 square feet of class-
room and office space.

Supermajority stays despite 'no' vote


rI



VOTE NO


ARCHIVE PHOTO BY ABRAHAM ABORAYA THE OBSERVER
A campaign sign against the controversial Amendment 10 is on display on a Winter Park street before the March 9 election. The amendment did not pass, but a similar ordinance was upheld by the Commission.

Mayor Ken Bradley says Commission's refusal to repeal ordinance goes against 'will of the people'


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
A city ordinance requiring a su-
permajority vote for land-use
changes will not be removed from
the books, after the Commission
sat in silence when called to vote
March 22 to repeal it.
That ordinance had been in place
since aJanuary vote by the Commis-
sion made a supermajority or 4-to-1
vote necessary to change land use in
the comprehensive plan. On March
9, the voters shot down a charter
amendment that would have man-
dated the supermajority vote.
Mayor Ken Bradley denounced
some members of the Commission,
though not by name, for what he
called going against what the resi-
dents want.
Bradley argued
that since the vot-
ers didn't want a
supermajority vote IM A
in the more binding
charter, the Com- THAT
mission should re-
peal the less-binding THAT
ordinance.
But Commission- NOT I
er Beth Dillaha said
that the Commis- THAT
sion and the voters TH
voted on two differ-
ent issues, and that ALIG
the Commission
shouldn't have to re- WITH
verse its decisions.
"This is an apples WILL
to oranges scenar-
io," Dillaha said. PEOPI
"If [supermajor-
ity voting] were in KEN I
the charter, then it
means the only way
it could come out of
the charter is for the citizens to vote
on it. You'd have assurances that a
supermajority vote would always
be required. But when you have an
ordinance, any future commission
could repeal it."
At the March 22 Commission
meeting, Bradley had attempted to
do just that repeal the ordinance.
At the end of the meeting, he asked
the Commission to consider doing
so.
The Commission met the motion
with silence, save for a comment
from Commissioner Phil Anderson.
"I'm perfectly happy with the


I











L
B3


citizens' decision not to put it in the
charter," Commissioner Phil Ander-
son said.
Anderson did not speak in favor
of removing the ordinance.
"I'm asking that since that did
not pass [in the March vote] that we
align that with the will of the peo-
ple," Bradley said.
He would only need three votes
from the Commission to do so,
though he received none.
"There was silence because no
one agreed," Dillaha said in an in-
terview.
After the vote, Bradley expressed
frustration with fellow commis-
sioners.
"We have a commissioner who's
traveling around the state saying
'Let's follow the will of the people,'
yet we didn't listen to them on Sun-
Rail and we haven't lis-
tened to them on the
|SKING charter," Bradley said.
SKIN "I'm very intrigued why
Swe wouldn't be listen-
SINCE ing to the voters."
He pointed to the
DID vote against the char-
ter amendment that
ASS would have required
the supermajority, not-
WE ing the relatively wide
gap of voter disapprov-
THAT al of the amendment a
margin of 53 percent to
THE 47 percent.
ITHE "It was a little bit
higher than some of
IF THE the commissioners
were elected by," Brad-
E.99 ley said.
"We need to serious-
RADLEY ly look at how we look
at the charter amend-
ments from now on."
Two of the commis-
sioners Carolyn Cooper and Tom
McMacken who refused to repeal
the ordinance at the March 22 meet-
ing had been sworn in for their first
terms in office that day, and were
not present at the January vote that
had established the supermajority
ordinance.
The election of the two new
commissioners was seen by some
as a referendum against develop-
ment, as Cooper and McMacken
had championed more controlled
growth. The passing of the superm-
ajority change to the charter was


seen as a key legislative tool to make
it more difficult to change land use
for new development, though it did
not pass.
Dillaha said a well-funded cam-
paign doomed the charter amend-
ment.
"There was a big negative cam-
paign against it, which created
enough confusion with the citi-
zens," she said. "Anytime you have
that situation, they're going to vote

no."
Bradley said the Commission
should be further in line with the
intent of the voters, which he said
showed the public was against a su-
permajority vote.
"The question for me is, when are
we going to listen to the will of the
people?" he said. "You can't have it
both ways. You either listen to the
will of the people or you don't."

Jones replaces Speraw as head coach

Two weeks after ousting its winningest coach, the Knights hire a coach who beat them twice in 2010


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
Donnie Jones walked into
the job interview with a
plan to revitalize UCF
basketball. There were six-
month, one-year, and five-
year benchmarks. He would
pull in top talent and galva-
nize a fan base. Most impor-
tantly, he'd win.
Now two weeks after UCF
fired its winningest coach in
basketball history, they have


Kirk Speraw's replacement
in Jones.
"Donnie has a vision for
this program that includes
attracting top-notch stu-
dent-athletes and compet-
ing for championships,"
Athletic Director Keith Trib-
ble said.
The former University
of Florida assistant coach
spent the last season head-
ing up a Marshall men's
program that ascended to


24-10 by season's end the
best the Herd had seen in 20
years. That included beat-
ing the Knights twice this
past season the final blow
coming in a triple overtime
thriller in which the Herd
outlasted the Knights.
Jones had been with the
Herd for just three years,
turning around a founder-
ing program with top re-
cruits, whom he pulled in
personally to help revitalize


the team.
Before that he had served
as UF's associate head coach,
helping to build a strong re-
cruiting program there.
On Tuesday afternoon
the Knights introduced
their coach to fans and the
media at a press conference
at the UCF Arena.

HOLLER I Land wasn't for sale when college officials approached Holler group

way to Maitland Boulevard,
something I've dreamed
about since the college first
purchased property in Al-
tamonte Springs [in] 2003,"
McGee said in the state-
ment.
The dealerships that are
currently occupying the
buildings off South State
Road 434 Classic Audi,
Classic Chevrolet, Hum-
mer of Orlando and Classic
Driver's Mart will close by
January 2013 and re-open
in new locations, said Holler
spokeswoman Lori Booker.
Holler plans to reinvest
the funds from the sale into
existing dealership loca-
tions, the relocation of the
Altamonte dealerships and
a new design for Audi, she
said.
The automotive group,
which is currently in arbi-
tration with General Motors
to continue its Chevrolet
contract, was content with
selling the land to Seminole
State because of the col-
lege's role in the communi-
ty, she said. When Seminole
State came to them with an


offer the land wasn't even
for sale.
"If they had called us
just six months later, we
wouldn't have been able to
leave," Booker said. If con-
struction on the Audi rede-
sign had started earlier, it
would have put a stop to the
transaction.
"Because the [college] is
so important to this com-
munity, [RCJ] went ahead
and agreed to sell land that
wasn't for sale," said Booker.
"All that was sold was real
estate. [The dealerships are]
just going to be relocated."
RCJ and Seminole State
had been in negotiations
for months before agreeing


on the $22.5 million price.
"I was originally con-
cerned about the price of
the property, but I think
through negotiations it
came down into the range
that became reasonable
for us," said Scott D. Ho-
wat, vice chairman of the
district's Board of Trustees.
"It's a great opportunity
for Seminole State as far as
making use of that facility,
the partnership opportuni-
ty and the expansion of that
facility."
The Altamonte campus,
which opened in January
2008, is host to all of the col-
lege's health programs and
has already hit capacity.

"We have been full almost
from the day we opened,"
said Colon of the campus
that served 2,823 students
who more than packed
the 563 available parking
spaces at its opening. "The
expansion will enable us to
meet the demands of the
community."
The first noticeable
change from the purchase
will be the increase in avail-
able parking, which will
happen by the end of July,
according to the college's
communications manager,
Jay Davis. He said the lot
will provide parking for 200
to 300 additional vehicles.
Considering the current


state of the economy, it's
not unusual for taxpayers
to wonder why the school
wants to expand now, but
the college's president for
administrative services and
chief financial officer, Jo-
seph Sarnovsky, is confident
that now is the best time to
do so.
"This gives the opportu-
nity to the college to expand
their site with the lowest
cost of real estate that we've
seen in many, many years,"
said Sarnovsky. "It's going
to save the taxpayers several
million dollars."

The March 25 article "Manager nets $1.1M" incorrectly stated the contractual relationship between Jim Williams and the city. There was no term
in his contract; therefore it did not end early.

Wildcats soaked by Conchs

Spruce Creek Tournament proves to be an up-and-down series for Winter Park's baseball team


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Baseball
The Winter Park Wildcats
were no match for the Key
West Conchs at the Spruce
Creek baseball tournament
on Monday. The Wildcats
fell 6-3 in the game, suffer-
ing from too many runners
on base in clutch situations.
After facing Astronaut
in the tournament at press
time, the Wildcats will get a
weeklong break before re-
turning to the field at 7 p.m.
at Olympia.
Trinity Prep improved
to 10-4 on the season after
a big game against Union
County Saturday.
The Saints edged out a 9-8
win on the strength of Tony
Covington and Max Moroffs
bats. They both cranked out
three RBIs and a home run
apiece in the game, helping
propel their team to victory.
The win was the closest
of the season for the Saints,
who have dominated in
most of their victories so
far.
After facing Trinity Chris-
tian at press time, they'll
travel to The Master's Acade-
my, starting at 7 p.m. Thurs-
day.


Softball
The Trinity softball team fell
to 8-6 with a big 8-1 loss at
Gulf in New Port Richey.
The girls enter the Kissim-
mee Klassic Tournament
this Thursday.

Lacrosse
Winter Park's boys lacrosse
improved on their already
big season after a 13-9 win
in Boulder, Colorado. They
played Melbourne Central
Catholic at press time and
return Friday at Flagler Palm
Coast.
The girls lacrosse team
improved to 8-5 after a 13-6
win over Lake Howell March
25.
District tournaments for
lacrosse start Monday, with
championships Friday and
Saturday.

Water polo
In a Saturday doubleheader
the Winter Park's girls wa-
ter polo team ascended to
16-1 on the strength of two
blowout wins against St. An-
drews and Gulliver Prep. Ni-
cole Tobin's 8 goals against
Gulliver led the way for the
Wildcats.

Knights pummeled by Houston


ARCHIVE PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE OBSERVER
The Knights had hot bats in Game 1 of the series, but fell apart in the next two as the Cougars dismantled them in the second act, then destroyed them in a 20-3 blowout in the series finale on Sunday.


Despite strong start to three-game road series, the Knights fall big to their first conference opponent


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Knights are licking their
wounds after a weekend
pummeling at the hands
of Houston. Now 15-10 on
the season, they're looking
to get back on track with a
three-game homestand this
weekend.
The sting of a 20-3 beat-
ing Sunday came just after


the Knights lost 7-3 the day
before. That was a rapid
turn for the worse for the
Knights, who had actually
won the series opener in
Houston 7-4.
Solid pitching by the
Knights in Game 1 saw the
Cougars collecting 11 hits
but only 4 runs, while strik-
ing out five times.
The Knights were actu-
ally behind for most of the


first game as they struggled
to put runs on the board. But
that all changed when an
eighth inning rally flipped
the scoring differential up-
side down and the Knights
took a tenuous 2-run lead.
The Cougars fought back
in the bottom half of the in-
ning, scoring a run of their
own to narrow the game to
a nail-biter. But in the top
of the ninth Ryan Breen


cranked a homerun over the
left field wall to put up all
the insurance the Knights
would need.
After a tough loss in
Game 2, the Knights moved
on hoping to take the series
in the final game Sunday.
The Cougars had differ-
ent plans, launching into
an 8-run second inning to
start off a scoring barrage
that wouldn't end until the


game was called in the bot-
tom of the seventh.
All but one starting batter
put an RBI up on the board
for Houston, with center
fielder Joel Ansley hammer-
ing home four runs.
Nick Cicio picked up an
unfortunate first loss on the
season, bringing his record
to 2-1.

REESE I Councilman warned of impending bankruptcy, but Council did nothing


< continued from the front page

forward by restructuring
its debt," the release states.
"... The Brossier Company
is willing to work with any
developer that has the city
of Maitland's best interest
at hand to develop the con-
nected, walkable master
plan that was approved in
2007 with so much input
from the community."

The properties are frozen
So what will actually hap-
pen with the property? Well,
there's two scenarios, said
Verl Emrick, the city's CRA
director.
In scenario one, Reese
comes out of the bankrupt-
cy able to satisfy the bank
and everything is "bright
and rosy," he said. If he can't,
though, the bank would end
up owning the old Winn Di-
xie parcel and the Royal Pla-
za, and the city would then
have to deal with a new de-
veloper.
The curveball, though, is
what would happen to the
property north of Horatio
Avenue, which is owned by
seven property owners, in-


cluding the city.
"All of which come down
to a point of saying these
are things we're prepared
to address at an appropriate
time," Emrick said. "Right
now, the only thing we can
do is be proactive and ready
to address either scenario.
In whatever way it presents
itself."
Emrick also said that
downtowns and projects
this large take an inordi-
nate amount of time to
evolve themselves, and
since the city isn't revitaliz-
ing its downtown as much
as building it from scratch,
tempers can run high.
"These types of things,
with projects of this sig-
nificance and size, is not
an atypical scenario," Em-
rick said about the foreclo-
sure and the bankruptcy.
"There's a little more angst
associated with it in this
scenario."

City sits tight
Now the city plays the wait-
ing game, said Maitland City
Commissioner Phil Bonus.
Because the city is still en-
tangled with developer Bob


Reese in a developer's agree-
ment, the city can't do any-
thing with their property
until the Ch. 11 bankruptcy
proceedings are finished,
that is, unless they pay a law
firm in New York City -
where Reese's management
company is to represent
them in the case, and ask
the court to release them
of their obligations. That
would be at a cost about
four times as expensive as a
local attorney would, Bonus
said.
"We can't do anything
now. We can't entertain any
other offers; we can't pro-
ceed with any land-use plan-
ning that might impede the
bankruptcy process. We're
stymied," Bonus said.
"What will happen is
more delay while other peo-
ple control our destiny. We'll
continue to miss financial
opportunities as the market
rebounds."
Maitland Mayor Doug
Kinson, though, takes the
opposite view: He thinks
Bonus and his group are
playing Chicken Little.
"The sky is falling; the
sky is falling," Kinson said.

"It's really not a doomsday
scenario. The people who
think this is the worst thing
that can happen to the city
of Maitland aren't picking
up the phone and talking
to the right people. Our ex-
posure in this is very mini-
mal."
Kinson said that anyone
who is truly interested in
the Maitland Town Center
project and not just inter-
ested in scooping it up from
the bank and parceling it
out will wait for the end
result of the bankruptcy.
Real estate transactions take
more than 30 or 60 days to
assemble.
He said that if someone
was scared off from the deal
because part of the property
is now in bankruptcy, they
weren't really interested in
the first place.
"This accusation that
the city is going to be hurt
because there's a long list
of people knocking on the
door is completely base-
less," Kinson said.
Bonus blames Kinson,
Councilman Jeff Flowers
and Councilwoman Linda
Frosch for the city's current


situation. The three consis-
tently voted to keep the de-
veloper's agreement intact
on three occasions.
That was even as Bonus
and others warned the de-
veloper was going down
the bankruptcy path. Bonus
said, repeatedly and public-
ly, that Reese would file for
bankruptcy at the last mo-
ment, prevent the sale and
leave the city stuck in legal
limbo for the new down-
town.
"It's hard to fathom why
the city, with its own land
and its own agenda of citi-
zen needs, would leave itself
open to the financial whims
and woes of one developer
when it didn't have to be
this way," Bonus said. "He
(Reese) could be bankrupt
and we could be merrily
along our way planning our
future on the property we
own. We could be moving
forward."
Bob Reese and his attor-
ney did not return phone
calls seeking comment be-
fore press deadline Tuesday.
They did send the press re-
lease.

April events in Maitland!


Maitland provides family-
oriented events every
month in our community.
April will bring a wide array
of exciting events for every
member of the family.

Maitland Relay for Life -
April 30 Orangewood
Presbyterian Church
I am priviledged this year to
be the honorary chairman
of Maitland's Relay for Life.
The American Cancer
Society began its first
Relay in 1986 in Tacoma,
Wash., and it has grown to
become an international
event involving 1.3 million
people in more than 19
different countries.
Besides raising funds
to end cancer one day, the
Relay for Life provides an
opportunity to remember
loved ones lost to the
disease, to celebrate
survivors who have battled
and won, and to support all
who are dealing with the
hardships in their lives.


Cancer knows no
bounds, and affects each
and every one of us in
one way or another. We
are always looking for
corporate, community,
school and individual
teams to make the event a
success. Please get involved,
join a team, or contribute
to the cause. For more

in 1992 that the Florida

Independent and foreign
films. The Festival provides

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. In
addition, the size of the
main sidewalk that runs
parallel to the railroad
tracks will be increased
from a 5-foot-wide
sidewalk to an 8-foot-wide
sidewalk, and the sidewalks
inside the park will also
be increased by one foot
making them six feet wide.
During large major
events, many attendees
of Central Park often
find themselves trying
to maneuver their baby
strollers on the narrow
sidewalks through the
crowds, while others try
to find the best route
off the sidewalk to pass
the bottleneck that can
sometimes occur. After
the city completes its
renovation of Central Park,
strollers with wheels and
strollers on foot will have
more room to roam.
Maintenance and
upgrades are the best way
to preserve the park's
natural beauty and keep
Central Park a viable
destination for thousands
to enjoy for years to come.

QUESTIONS ABOUT THE
CENSUS?
By now, many of you may
have already received the
Census 2010 form in the
mail. It is so important to
fill out the Census form as
it affects the numbers of
seats your state occupies
in the U.S. House of
Representatives. And
people from many walks
of life use census data to
advocate for causes, rescue
disaster victims, prevent
diseases, research markets,
locate pools of skilled
workers, and more.
When you do the math,
it's easy to see what an
accurate count of residents
can do for your community.
Better infrastructure.
More services. A brighter
tomorrow for everyone.
In fact, the information
the census collects helps
to determine how more
than $400 billion dollars of
federal funding each year is
spent on infrastructure and
services like:
-Hospitals
-Job training centers
-Schools
-Senior centers
-Bridges, tunnels and
other-public works projects
-Emergency services
If you have questions
about the Census, the
Census form or need
assistance, here are
three ways to find more
information:



along with games for kids
and arts and crafts for all
to enjoy. Bring the family,
enjoy the day and enjoy
everything that Maitland
has to offer along the way!

In challenging times,
angels sometime descend

sole mission is to raise
awareness and dollars to
help first responders in
need. Their primary goal
is to assist first responders
in times of personal crisis,
but secondary goals include
greater involvement in the
community and assisting
wherever possible.
Last year's kickball ball
event raised enough money
to provide every Maitland
firefighter with sharp,
crisp, dress blue uniforms.
This year's event is shaping
up to be even greater.
Twelve teams have already
committed and with a new
silent auction, will provide
enough funds to assist

Cast and crew rallies to complete beloved conductor Jonathan May's grand finale after his death


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Jonathan May wasn't on
stage for the final perfor-
mance of his career. The
award-winning conduc-
tor wasn't in the crowd or
waiting in the wings. He
was in the music, as his first
note bowed to life from the
strings of a violin and soared
across the stage, before set-
tling in the rafters as a sym-
phony arose from dozens of
young musicians below.
This wasn't just a per-
formance it was a final
goodbye. The white rib-
bons circling the arms of


May's young pupils were a
clue. Some had known their
teacher since they could
barely walk. Even then,
he knew they could play.
May would win accolades
worldwide during his career
spanning more than three
decades tutoring in the lan-
guage of music.
On a rainy Sunday after-
noon inside the Trinity Prep
theater, May's lifetime of
work culminated in a mag-
num opus, Gilbert and Sul-
livan's "The Mikado," per-
formed for the last time one
month after his death.
"You must adjust," May
had told his students over


and over again. The scale
of the production of "The
Mikado," which brought
together the theater and
entire symphony on stage
at the same time, had nev-
er been matched before at
Trinity. When the sympho-
ny could barely fit on stage,
they adjusted. When the
production's size forced it
to spill out onto the theater
floor, they adjusted.
A month before the cur-
tain would rise on his dream,
the symphony's conduc-
tor and longtime mentor
passed away on a Saturday
afternoon. It would be the
biggest adjustment of all.


Coming back from a
weekend in which word of
May's death spread quickly
among students, colleagues
and friends, the rehearsal
room was oddly quiet Mon-
day morning.
"When we came back
to school Monday, nobody
played, nobody sang, we
just talked about Jonathan,"
Director Janine Papin said.
"But everyone knew we'd
have to go on."
Assistant Conductor Bri-
an Beute had only worked
with percussion and wind
instruments for the produc-

GUEST REPORTER

With their college buddies
by their side, 150 fourth and
fifth-graders at Fern Creek
Elementary played with tan-
grams in a geometry class,
took a course on global
biodiversity of wildlife and
learned to speak Japanese
during the Rollins College
"Pathways to College Day"
event on Wednesday, March
24.
The biannual event,
which brings in kindergar-
ten through second-grade
Fern Creek students in the
fall, allows students the op-
portunity to be college stu-
dents for a day, where they
donned "Future College
Graduate" T-shirts, sat-in on
college classes and interact-
ed with college students to
get a true day-in-the-life-of
experience.
Patrick Galatowitsch,
Fern Creek principal, said
that the partnership with
Rollins is like a "meeting
of the souls" and delivers
the message that, "It's not
whether students will go to
college, but instead where
they'll go."
Fern Creek is considered
an "at risk" school because


' ROLLINS

DOESN'T JUST

ENCOURAGE

OUR STUDENTS

TO GO TO

COLLEGE, THEY

TAKE THEM

THERE!
-SUSAN PETERSON,
FIFTH-GRADE TEACHER AT
FERN CREEK ELEMENTARY


more than 83 percent of its
students are on the free and
reduced lunch program,
while about 20 percent of
its students are homeless.
The exclusive partner-
ship between Rollins and
Fern Creek began in 2001
to boost Fern Creek's school
rating and has since includ-
ed not only the "Pathways to
College Day" event, which
began in 2006, but an exten-
sive, one-on-one mentoring
program that mutually ben-
efits both parties.
Michele Meyer, director
of the Office of Community
Engagement at Rollins, said,
"There is not a day that goes
by where a Rollins student,
staff or faculty member isn't
on the Fern Creek campus...
Connecting curriculum,
mentoring and education is
a key component to college
awareness for children at
Fern Creek."
Rollins students learn
just as much though, she
said. "Many learn that they
are interested in education
and serving as advocates
for children in our commu-
nity."
Since the partnership,
the school has gone from an
"F" school to an "A" school.
Suzy Plott, a recent Rol-
lins graduate who partici-
pated in the program as a
student, now serves as the
community and mentor
coordinator at Fern Creek,
where she says it's all about
"planting the seed" of col-
lege being an attainable op-
tion early on.
By instilling this mindset
now, Plott said children can
get motivated and excited
for college by raising their
grades and planning ahead.
For Khristian Burke,
third-grader at Fern Creek,
the program is fun and im-
portant to her because, "The
things you learn in elemen-
tary [school], you can learn
more about [in college.]
She said she hopes to be
a writer one day, as she and


her college buddy worked
to extract DNA from straw-
berries as part of a biology
class demonstration.
Burke's lab partner, Molly
Uelmen, marine biology ju-
nior at Rollins, said, "I think
it's definitely an important
program because a lot of
these kids come from par-
ents with backgrounds that
didn't include college...For


some, they could be the first
college graduates in their
family. This just gives them
a new perspective for their
futures."
Susan Peterson, fifth-
grade teacher at Fern Creek,
said, "Rollins doesn't just en-
courage our students to go
to college, they take them
there!"

MIKADO I Standing ovation lasts 10 minutes as friends say final farewell to longtime conductor


< continued from page 12

tion before that first day.
Even still, over the course
of the next few weeks he
took the conductor's wand
and weaved together the
final stitches of symphony
and percussion that would
form the backdrop of the
most complicated
performance ever
played upon the
Trinity Prep stage.
That ability to
adapt, Beute said,
came from May,
with whom he'd
collaborated for
six years at Trinity
Prep.
"He imparted
so much skill and musical
ability in me," Beute said.
"He was an educator; he
was a mentor and he was a
friend."
In a moment, Beute was
tasked with bringing the
culminating vision of his
friend and mentor to life.
He leapt at the chance to
repay his teacher. Only four
weeks later, he was on stage
dressed in black, readying to
give a final thank-you with
wand in hand.
On the theater side, pro-
duction had been working
in earnest as costumes came
directly from Japan, and
makeup became a transfor-
mative art to create a dis-


tinctlyJapanese look among
the multi-ethnic cast.
Fast forward to 2:13
p.m. Sunday, March 28, 17
minutes before showtime.
Inside a small white cin-
derblock room, hidden be-
hind the stage's back wall, a
small chorus of voices rises
and grows, singing notes
without words,
soon conscript-
ing an entire
room filled with
teens in stark
pale white-and-
black makeup.
The chorus
continues to
rise in volume
and frenzy as
musical direc-
tor Patrick Nugent whistles
through three octaves on a
tuning harmonica, readying
dozens of voices at once as
the sound rises to a crescen-
do, then stops. It's almost
showtime.
Now that same group of
students, garbed in kimonos
and black wigs, forms a tight
circle that still spans the
breadth of this small back
room. In these same slight
confines, they had rushed
through hours of hair and
makeup to turn them into
Nanki, Yum Yum, Pitti Sing
and dozens more before ar-
riving at this moment.
As the players circle
around her, Papin stands in


a red Japanese blouse ready
to give her players a final
pep talk before they flood
onto the stage.
"I do not ever want to see
high school theater on this
stage," Papin had told her
students. "You're all better
than that. This isn't just high
school theater. This is the-
ater. You can impress; you
can shine. ... Play to make
Jonathan proud."
Racing toward the stage
with a rush of flitting feet
along the auditorium's side
walkways, the cast brought
to life the complex light
comedyof a royal son hiding
from his destiny, but drawn


by love to a terrible fate. All
the while, the music played
in perfect harmony, a testa-
ment to preparation that
had taken months leading
up to the final curtain.
Alighting the stage as
their voices echoed the last
note of the final act, the cast
and symphony bowed to an
ovation from an audience
on its feet that resounded
for more than 10 minutes.
The crew, along with Papin
and an army of production
assistants, all walked out to
join the celebration.
They all had known this
would be the final cheer for
their departed friend and


mentor.
"He taught me to be the
best person I could be," Col-
lin Powell, 17, said. "He told
us that no matter what hap-
pens, we'll make it work."
Celebrating on stage be-
fore the lights faded to black
for the last time on May's
opus, cast and crew hugged
each other in tears.
And in her final moment
in the spotlight at the cen-
ter of the stage, her voice
drowned in a roar of ap-
plause, Papin gazed out just
beyond the audience as she
whispered a silent thank
you to a friend.

Opinion/Editorial


Perspectives

The sins of the fathers


There is this quality of be-
ing human that allows us
to project the horror. The
horror of what another
human being might have
felt, might have experi-
enced. When I first heard
that a Catholic priest had
molested deaf boys (200
cases), I thought, how can
this be? It's a transgression
so offensive as to be nearly
unimaginable. You some-
times hear of children as
young as 2 or 3 being raped,
and I, for one, consider the
death penalty appropriate
for such abominable crimes
against humanity. I would
have no qualms pulling the
trigger.
You can display behavior
so egregious that you forfeit
your membership in the
tribe of humanity.
About 10 or so years ago,
it started becoming public
that the Catholic Church
in America had a problem.
In diocese after diocese,
mostly men were coming
forward to state that when
they were boys, priests
sexually molested them.
These were not isolated
incidents confined to only
Boston or Los Angeles, but
all over America, victims of
priestly abuse were com-
ing "out of the closet" of
shame to seek vindication,
validation and justice. The


American Catholic Church,
of course, stonewalled, but
the truth did come out. The
truth continues to shame
(and severely compromise
the moral authority of) the
Church today.
What became readily ap-
parent was that the Church
would repeatedly deny
the incidents or minimize
them. We are talking about
thousands upon thousands
of cases of priests sexually
abusing children under
their jurisdiction. It gets
worse.
How, you might legiti-
mately ask, can it get worse
than the sexual molesta-
tion of children? Of rob-
bing children of their in-
nocence and childhoods?
Of scarring children for the
rest of their lives? How does
it get worse?
By doing nothing to
the perpetrators of these
crimes. By transferring of-
fending priests to other
parishes where they con-
tinued their abuse. For de-
cades. By publicly denying
the problem and/or sug-
gesting that it was a small
inconsequential "issue"
that the Church was look-
ing into and meaningfully
dealing with. By not turn-
ing over the raping priests
of the Catholic Church to
civil authorities for investi-


gation and prosecution.
I cannot even begin to
imagine the moral hoops
and hurdles the Church
must jump to square such
institutionalized degrada-
tion with the "true" believ-
ers among the Catholic
faithful. How do you con-
fess to your congregation
that good ol' Father Mur-
phy was for years molesting
young deaf boys?
Deaf boys?! I picture
Edvard Munch's, "The
Scream." What kind of
warped human being mo-
lests children and then
compounds the crime by
ratcheting-up the offense
by violating an even more
vulnerable human being?
Who does such crimes
against humanity? An or-
dained Catholic priest.
From an institution that re-
peatedly denied the charges
of institutionalized sexual
abuse and covered-up the
crimes of molestation and
rape for decades.
Whoever handles the pu-
bic relations for the Catho-
lic Church and the Vatican
made a horrible mistake.
Among many. When all the
abuses were surfacing in
America they should have
convened a meeting at the
Vatican that dealt with the
PR side of the issue, and
they should have decided to
come clean worldwide. Ten
years ago. Get it all out at
once. Scour the attic, look
under the couch, clean the
basement and reveal all the
dirty linen of sexual abuse.
Reveal all (to the best of
their ability to determine)
the crimes against human-
ity committed by church
officials. Come clean. Con-
fess. Pay whatever finan-
cial reparations are called
for. Say the requisite Hail
Mary's, Our Father's, the


mea culpas and get on with
rebuilding the damage the
church inflicted upon itself.
But no, that is not what
happened, and now you
have Europe erupting
with Church abuse cases
(Ireland, Germany and re-
newed interest in America
offenses) that lead all the
way to Pope Benedict XVI.
Evidence is coming for-
ward in the very public Ger-
man case that when Pope
Benedict XVI was the Arch-
bishop of Munich in the
1980s, he failed to remove
Father Peter Hullermann,
the infamous pedophile
priest. This beast of a priest
was reassigned and contin-
ued to work with children.
All this occurred under the
Archbishop's jurisdiction
of responsibilities. Vatican
officials are quickly scram-
bling with explanations as
to why the Pope is not, in-
deed, responsible. They say
he got up to 1,000 memos
a year (that's 1,000 total in
one year) on church busi-
ness. That's less than three
a day as Maureen Dowd in
the New York Times so suc-
cinctly pointed out.
Is it believable that he
was completely unaware
that the Hullermann "case"
was then cycling (perhaps
that should be recycling)
through his office? Is it pos-
sible a priestly pedophile
(under the Archbishop's
management) was not of
sufficient importance? Can
that be? That the Arch-
bishop wouldn't have been
advised that Hullermann
was being reassigned to an-
other parish. That he didn't
sign-off on such a weighty
matter. Is that believable? Is
it possible?
Well, it's certainly laugh-
able. Not the crime of
sexual molestation. Just


the church again denying
responsibility. I've read two
interesting arguments as to
why all these priests were
so actively abusing children
in the 1970s. This is funny.
Catholic liberals argue that
it's because priests can't
marry or that women can-
not become priests that
caused (is causing) all the
problems in the priesthood.
Catholic conservatives, on
the other hand, argue that
it is the moral relativity of
the changing Western cul-
tures that is the problem.
Is that a gas or what?
Moral relativism is affect-
ing how Catholic priests
behave and have since the
1970s? Hmmm? I consider
myself a secular humorist,
a moral relativist and you
know what, not once in
the 1970s (or ever for that
matter) did I determine
that it was ever OK to rape
and molest children. I guess
I'm not schooled in the
intricacies of priestly logic
and behavior. Or of the
justifications by conserva-
tive church apologists who
try to explain away church
problems by blaming them
on a permissive culture.
If there is a dysfunction-
al culture and if it is morally
bankrupt, it is surely within
the Church itself, too. And
as we see today, it does go
all the way to the top.
Just ask any of the 200
deaf Catholic boys who
couldn't hear their own
screams but no doubt
remember the heaving,
priestly breath as they were
... "The horror, the horror."

Letters tothe Editor


Winter Park's civil war
There's a civil war going
on, not the internecine war
taking place in the Middle
East. The civil war I'm talk-
ing about rages right in
Winter Park.
There are two armies
engaged in this war one
army fights for Winter Park
to look like Mayberry USA
with a Norman Rockwell
painting; the opposing
army fights for Winter
Park to be a much bigger
city with more buildings,
more people and more car
and train traffic. Tampa,
Fla., rather than Mayberry,
comes to mind.
The recent election for a
seat on the city commission
is an example of the mu-
tual diatribe taking place.
For example, one candi-
date wants to preserve the
unique beauty and historic
value of Winter Park in
ways that will protect the
ambiance and uniqueness


of the city.
The opposition, instead
of championing unique
beauty and historic value
of Winter Park, stressed the
importance of a Winter
Park SunRail train by ac-
cusing the opposition of
being opposed to a SunRail
landing in Winter Park. The
counter response replied
that one candidate, while
serving as Chairman of the
Planning and Zoning Com-
mission, consistently pro-
moted and approved mas-
sive projects including the
Carlisle Project, which was
claimed to be incompatible
with the Winter Park Land
Use Policies. So it is plain to
see from the recent election
that fervent rivals, nemeses
to each other, have differ-
ent visions of the future of
Winter Park.
If you wonder and care
to know the possible preju-
dices this writer has on the
subject, he is a lawyer with
a staff of 21 people, and


like all owners of business
and practitioners of pro-
fessions, the more people,
buildings, motor vehicles,

construction and real es-
tate transactions, the more
business that comes our
way. Since I also own real


estate, Mr. Squires, an ex-
pert on the subject, tells me
commuter rail will increase
property values.
Yet, I must say I liked
Winter Park better upon
arrival in 1958. That was
when you could have taken
a nap in the middle of Park
Avenue without danger. I
even remember occasional-
ly seeing a horse and wagon
driving down Park Avenue;
we still had Baldwin Hard-
ware, Cottrels Five and
Dime store, where women
could buy a hairnet, and
Taylor's Pharmacy, with a
restaurant where you could
have biscuits for breakfast,
lunch and dinner.
When I drove into Win-
ter Park for the first time
and saw a college at one
end of town, a beautiful
park and golf course on
the other end of town, and
a beautiful Central Park in
between, I saw a town of
startling beauty. It is sad but
true, great moments in life


seldom return.
Yet, there are families
still enjoying Central Park
lying on blankets on a sun-
ny day while munching on
a sandwich.
I admit I worry about
what could happen to our
Central Park with advent of
commuter trains stopping
and departing nearby. I am
reminded of Yellowstone
National Park, which John
Rockefeller purchased for
millions of dollars in or-
der to preserve the unique
beauty and historic value
of that divine landscape,
precluding mass construc-
tion of anything that would
detract from that wonder
of nature.
These same issues will
continue to fester in elec-
tions to come and will ob-
ligate voters to decide the
future of Winter Park.

you want that?
Is this still the U.S.A. we
have always so proudly
hailed? the red, white
and blue waving over the
land of the free and the
brave? The banner we fol-
lowed into Normandy, and
Guadalcanal, and which
still waves above the sunk-
en USS Arizona in Pearl
Harbor?
In spite of our illustrious
heritage, there are discern-
able signs that our country
may be caving in to the
ubiquitous wacko that con-
fronts us on all sides.
Once we get a taste of
the people we elect to of-
fice, we may often suspect
ourselves of blindness,
deafness and even lunacy.
Our flag still waves over
the White House, but the
man inside is a question
mark.
How is it possible that
thinking people can so
often select unthinking -
even disloyal public ser-
vants?


I have "deemed" damn
few things in my life.
"Deeming" is kind of like
"dreaming" and contains
very little of real substance.
What is a "deem" built
upon except the avoidance
of clarity of expression?
Congresswoman Pelousy
throws a lot of "deems" at
you.
It's possible, for personal
gain, to kid ourselves that
the uncertain is the same as
the factual.
Should we then "deem"
our marriage partners to be
our mates and perhaps
not under law, but some-
thing somewhere close to
the law without being so
demanding?
On the public scene,
the trouble is that all the
people we vote for are poli-
ticians.
We're living in an era I
don't always understand.
Ours is a contradictory de-
mocracy where the public
shouts a loud "No" and
their political representa-
tives then shout "Yes" even
louder, right in their faces.
I'm possibly nuts to ex-
pect politicians to do what
thepeople want I guess
politicians likely do what
fellow-pol Nasty Pelousy
suggests, i.e., vote for a bill
first, and then read it to find
out afterward what they
voted for.
Maybe Pelousy thinks
that pols are not the "pub-
lic's servants" but the "pub-
lic's savants!"
At any rate, we have only
our principles and virtues
to tell us what is right and
wrong.
Since the Democrats suc-
ceeded in pushing through
Obama's health care bill
with a shocking display of
bizarre, manipulative she-
nanigans, the future looks
less sanguine indeed.
This bill's passing put
nearly a third of our na-


tional power in a devious
president's devious hands,
and makes us suspect that
there is worse to come.
We have every reason
to think that we picked in
Obama a very bad apple.
He waxed vociferous
when he told the U.S. that
he wanted immediate ac-
tion on the health care bill,
that he was "tired of wait-
ing around." Mr. Obama
seems most at home when
operating in aputsch frame
of mind, which may or may
not operate smoothly when
used in a democratic insti-
tution.
His chameleon morality
and his blatant arm-twist-
ing methods rule out any
chance of reasonable nego-
tiating with the man.
Do you yet realize fully
who Obama really is?
What's scary is that he
seems to ignore the exis-
tence of right and wrong,
and to concentrate only on
what he wants for his own
deceptive self-service.
How did the American
people, a people usually
conscious of its own mo-
rality, put into the White
House a character so lack-
ing in noble aims even
simple truth?
Wesley Pruden wrote in
The Washington Times: "...
Barack Obama and his radi-
cal agenda might yet win. If
it does, he will have put in
place the structure for tak-
ing over everything else."
Obama is a product of
South Chicago, a protege of
Saul Alinsky and George So-
ros. He has filled the White
House with aides who are
too often of the Marxist
stripe.
The U.S. Constitution
seems more and more to be
ignored for the Communist
Manifesto.
How did we do this to
ourselves? (An expression I
heard Germans utter often


in post-war Germany.)
What will be the nature
of the next election?
Will the U.S. public have
the free right and sober
judgment to dump Obama
by merely voting him out?
He is, of course, now the
Commander in Chief of
all our armed forces al-
though God knows he is
no Eisenhower, Marshall or
Nimitz.
No one has ever been
able to defeat the U.S. by in-
vading our shores.
Are we now vulner-
able to be conquered from
within?
Will the Supreme Court,
perhaps, decide to invali-
date Obama's elaborate
health care plan?
Will Obama be allowed
to undermine our concepts
of free enterprise and pri-
vate property?
As Representative Alcee
Hastings succinctly said of
rules: "We make 'em up as
we go along."
Substitute the word
Constitution for the word
"rules" and you've got
Obama's simple, terrible
battle plan.
Obama is busy convinc-
ing large portions of the
American population that
they are "entitled" to big
bites from our national
treasury.
"Something for nothing"
has long been a Democratic
enticement. And entitle-
ments are right up Obama's
alley.
I, myself, was a Democrat
in my 20s, when I was just
out of college, and in uni-
form.
After a post-war decade
of making a living in a com-
petitive profession, I real-
ized that the Democrats'
principles were based on an
Alice-in-Wonderland exis-
tence.
Obama is busy sowing
seeds of doubt in the minds


Thursday, April 1,2010 Page 17

of Americans that the in-
surance companies that
have provided dependable
private insurance for gener-
ations are, in fact, incapable
of doing so now.
His health care bill was,
of course, designed to be
compulsory and finally to
drive out of business all
other health insurance or-
ganizations. No matter what
we are being told today,
there will be a single payer,
namely the government.
All this is clearly another
loud hurrah for the social-
ism that lots of people seem
to be clamoring for.
Obama likes to speak
of the "fortunate" and the
"unfortunate," implying
that luck is the highest
power, and that there is
little connection between
human behavior and its
results. His freely delivered
conclusions are without
substantiation, and can
strongly affect the young
and the gullible. The only
possible reason why this
country could be reduced
to a third-rate nation would
be if a control force at the
top was able to topple us.
Marxist George Soros
is more than likely one of
many such forces. The fact
of "America-haters" re-
mains forever inexplicable
to me.
People who are born
thinking that they are
"owed" a living astound me.
Such is the beginning of
the end...
"For government to
guarantee a 'right' to health
care, or any other good or
service, whether a person
can afford it or not, it must
diminish someone else's
rights, namely their rights
to their earnings. The rea-
son is that government
has no resources of its very
own." Economist Walter
E. Williams

No April Fool's joke here

these events are

worth seeing


Winter Park's Whipples at
Lake Eustis Museum of Art
Winter Park's dynamic duo
of painting and sculpture
- John and Lynn Whipple
- are married, talented, and
fun! On Friday, April 2 from
6 p.m. to 9 p.m., they will
exhibit their quirky, con-
temporary, and decidedly
unique paintings and sculp-
tures at the Lake Eustis
Museum of Art. Aptly titled,
"Hypnotic Oddities from a
Whimsical Universe: Lynn
Whipple & John Whipple"


will run through May 11 at
the Museum.
From adjoining stu-
dios filled with odd bits
and rusted treasures, each
Whipple picks and chooses
objects and accents, includ-
ing paint, wax and aban-
doned toys, to create poetic
and profound works which
find their way into art col-
lections nationwide. With
a tongue-in-cheek view of
their sentimental roots,
John's recent series of
quirky toy animals painted
on burlap "are the most


dysfunctional from a dys-
functional family," he says.
Whipple art from both
Whipples tugs at emo-
tions with a twist of smirk-
ing good humor.
The Lake Eustis Museum
is at 200 B E. Orange Ave.
in Eustis, Fla. Call 352-
483-2900 or visit www.

Easter Weekend Free
at the Morse Museum
The good folks at the Morse
Museum in Winter Park
believe in sharing espe-
cially on holiday weekends,
and we are all invited to
visit the Museum for free
on Easter weekend (That's
April 2,3, and 4). The hours
are Friday 9:30 a.m. to 8
p.m.; Saturday 9:30 a.m. to
4 p.m.; and 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
on Easter Sunday. There is
beauty at every turn in this
gem of a museum, and the
famous Tiffany windows
lend themselves to peaceful
contemplation, especially
on Holiday weekends. The
collection of works by Louis
Comfort Tiffany includes
leaded-glass windows and


lamps to art jewelry and
pottery-as well as the
amazing chapel interior
Tiffany designed for the
1893 World's Columbian
Exposition in Chicago. The
Museum is located at 445 N.
Park Ave., Winter Park. Call
407-645-5311 or visit www.
morsemuseum.org

Porgy and Bess
The Orlando Philharmonic
continues its mission to
bring opera to Central Flor-
ida with that most Ameri-
can of all operas Porgy
and Bess. Having written
some of the greatest mu-
sic ever composed by an
American, Porgy and Bess is
George Gershwin's undis-
puted masterpiece. Songs
include "Summertime," "It
Ain't Necessarily So" and "I
Got Plenty of Nuttin'."
The intensity of Porgy
and Bess holds its own in
the world of opera offering
multi-layered emotions; hu-
man frailty; the striving for
something better; and vio-
lence. In these performanc-
es, Bess will be sung by Mar-
quita Lister, who performed
the role at the Hollywood
Bowl's concert production


last summer and was cho-
sen as Bess in the New York
City Opera's PBS broadcast
of the opera. She can also
be heard as Bess on the ac-
claimed 2006 Decca CD
recording that reflects the
musical as it opened in its
1935 Broadway premiere.
Philharmonic Conductor
Christopher Wilkins calls
it, "one of the miracles of
American dramatic art."
The Philharmonic will
present Porgy and Bess in
collaboration with Mad
Cow Theatre and the Negro
Spiritual Scholarship Foun-
dation. Porgy and Bess will
be performed on Friday,
April 9 at 8 p.m. and Sun-
day, April 11 at 2 p.m. at the
Bob Carr. For tickets call
407-770-0071 or visit www.

LOUIS RONEY

American piano virtuoso Andrew
von Oeyen plays the grand piano
in grand style indeed. His kineti-
cally designed program at Rollins
College's Tiedtke Hall on Sunday
afternoon, March 28, was loaded
with challenges which he met
with ease.
Horacio Gutierrez, the pro-
grammed artist, was as he often
is indisposed.
Andrew von Oeyen was much
more than a satisfying replace-
ment.
A concert pianist needs: 1. the
"fingers" to do a virtuoso job, and
2. the lyrical interpretive ability
to speak the inner poetry that the
music should express.
Von Oeyen, who played a thor-
oughly "big-piano" program, has
all the requisite accoutrements,
and he puts them to very effective
use.
Von Oeyen crossed the ocean
from Paris the day before in order
to play this concert, but there was
no sign of jet lag in his energetic
and brilliant pianism.
As an operatic dramatic tenor
for many years in 11 countries,
perhaps I have a special identity
and appreciation for dramatic
music performed in exciting fash-
ion.
Mr. von Oeyen is no tinkler.
Though he proved that he can
play with affective lyricism, when
asked, he is the kind of pianist
that Beethoven, Schumann,


Brahms and Liszt dreamed of for
expansive music that the piano
alone among instruments can
deliver.
"Sonata in B minor" by Alban
Berg opened the program. Berg
had not yet developed a fully
atonal composition style. Without
his usual rough edges, Berg does
not contain the punch that came
later, and he was never much of a
melodist.
This reviewer rates Beethoven's
"Appassionata" as the crown jewel
of piano sonatas. Recalling live
performances by Gieseking, Rich-
ter, Michelangeli, Serkin and oth-
ers, I would rate Mr. von Oeyen's
performance very high indeed-
he certainly has the fingers, the
architectural concept, and the
courage requisite to approach
this hallowed pianistic ground.
His playing brought the cheering
audience to its feet.
The other big composer on this
"big pianist's" program was Franz
Liszt whose "Vallee d'Obermann"
(from "Annees de Pelerinage")
starts off in deceptive calmness
and gradually works up to a forte
climax. Liszt's arrangement of
"Elsa's Bridal Procession" (from
Wagner's "Lohengrin") provided
a stately letdown romantic in-
terlude and led to the always-
exciting "Rigoletto Paraphrase" by
Verdi. Liszt's variations on "Bella
Figlia dell'Amore" turns Verdi's
captivating tune every way but
loose and brought cheering from
a delighted standing crowd again.

Oscar winner Martin Landau, right, co-stars with fellow Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn in "Lovely, Still," which is showing at the Florida Film Festival on Sunday, April 11, and Wednesday, April 14.


An older crowd stars in Florida Film Festival works


The Florida Film Festival, produced
by the Enzian Theater, is coming to
Maitland and Winter Park Friday,
April 9 through Sunday, April 18.
Here are six films that star seniors:

'Lovely, Still'
Robert (Oscar winner Martin Lan-
dau, "Ed Wood") bags groceries at a
supermarket and that's as exciting
as his life gets. Then he meets Mary
(Oscar winner Ellen Burstyn, "Alice
Doesn't Live Here Anymore"), a beau-
tiful woman who has just moved in
across the street, and lonesome Rob-
ert finds a new, unexpected happi-
ness opening up to him: there's no
doubt that they're each other's desti-
ny. It's a memorable tale of new love
in the golden years, directed ironi-
cally but very deftly by 24-year-old
Nik Fackler.
April 11, 6:30 p.m. Enzian
April 14, 1:30 p.m. Regal Winter Park

'Bomber'
An elderly English couple set out on
a road trip to Germany and convince
their aimless 30-something son to
drive them. Forced into such close
quarters, the family's long-simmer-
ing resentments boil up, and each
member of the trio must a find new
way of communicating with the oth-
er two.
April 12, 7 p.m. Regal Winter Park

The Enzian Theater is located at
1300 S. Orlando Ave. in Maitland.
The Regal Winter Park Village 20 is
located at 510 N. Orlando Ave. in
Winter Park.


'Mid-August Lunch'
Mid-August lunch is a warm and
lighthearted comedy about good
food, feisty ladies, and unlikely
friendships. Gianni is lost in the mire
of being a middle-aged drunk who
lives with his 93-year-old mother.
As the debts continue to mount, the
broke Gianni must figure out a way
to make ends meet.
April 12, 6:30PM Enzian
April 16, 3:30PM Regal Winter Park

'No. 4 Street of Our Lady'
Your neighbors are being hunted
down and executed. Would you risk
your life to save theirs? Such was the
choice facing Francisca Halama-
iowa, a Polish-Catholic woman liv-
ing in Sokal during darkest days of
World War II.
April 11 5:15 p.m. Regal Winter Park
April 15 1:30 p.m. Enzian

'I Remember Mama'
I Remember Mama is a rewarding
and tender charmer about a Norwe-
gian immigrant family in 1910 San
Francisco. Irene Dunne (as Mama),
Barbara Bel Geddes (the matriarch
of a very different family in TV's
Dallas), Oscar Homolka, and Ellen
Corby (Grandma on TV's "The Wal-
tons") all earned Academy Award
nominations, giving irresistible per-
formances embraced in the smile-
making glow of a bygone era.
April 18, 1 p.m. Enzian

'That's Entertainment'
The incomparable Golden Era of
MGM musicals shines forever in this
timeless production that wowed
critics and the public alike, became
a surprise box-office smash, and re-
mains today the best compilation
movie ever made.
April 14, 6:30 p.m. Regal Winter Park

Fight depression with exergames


It can be a vicious cycle: Depression
can cause a lack of interest in physi-
cal activity, yet physical activity can
help alleviate depression. How do
we motivate ourselves to be active
when we just don't want to? There
might be a solution right in our
nearest electronics store: The Nin-
tendo Wii games.
Nintendo's Wii Sports was de-


by Matilda Charles


signed to get young people up off
the floor where they sit with re-
mote controls in their hands and
get them doing something physi-
cally active. However, a new study
has shown that the very same games
can help seniors become more ac-
tive. The University of California
San Diego School of Medicine used
the Wii Sports games (golf, box-
ing, tennis, bowling and baseball)
on test participants. One-third of
them reported that their depres-
sion was at least 50 percent better
by the end of the study.
Nintendo also has a Wii Fit Plus
package, and it's much more com-
prehensive than the basic Sports.
It lets you weigh in, take body fit-


the Wii games.
Ask your doctor if he or she
thinks the exercise games in Wii
would benefit you. And then, ask
your local seniors center if they'll
purchase one for group use!

ally answer reader questions, but will incorpo-

VA chief re-opens


Gulf War claims


by Freddy Groves

You probably won't see any
benefits from it in the next
several months or even this
year, but the Department
of Veterans Affairs is going
to take another look at the
disability claims of veterans
who served in the Gulf War.
Additionally and this
is big the VA is going to
train staff not to tell veter-
ans that the illnesses are all
in their head, that they're
imagining it.
This comes on the heels
of the VA adding three
more conditions to the list
of illnesses presumed to
be caused by exposure to
Agent Orange: B-cell leu-
kemia, Parkinson's disease
and ischemic heart disease.
Behind this change is re-
tired U.S. Army Gen. Eric K.
Shinseki, secretary of Veter-
ans Affairs. Last fall, a task
force took a hard look at
the Gulf War benefits issue.
Shinseki's choice to lead the
task force: a retired Army
colonel who was in the Gulf


in 1991. And Shinseki read
the Gulf illness study done
by the Institute of Medicine,
believed it, and made the
decision to reopen claims.
His top priority, he said, is
taking care of the backlog.
So, who is this Shinseki
guy anyway?
Shinseki is the real deal.
Started at West Point, first
stop Vietnam. Was a for-
ward observer when he
was wounded the first time.
Three years later, he was
back in Vietnam, a squad-
ron commander in the 5th
Cav when he was wounded
a second time (land mine).
Lots of medals and oakleaf
clusters. Came back and
started climbing the ladder,
with commands all over the
world including the Gulf.
His final post was Army
chief of staff.
We'll need to keep an eye
out, but so far he's aiming
the VA in the right direc-
tion.

If you're retired or


planning
retirement, you
probably know that it can
be smart to convert funds
into a Roth IRA. But what
exactly are the advantages
and the challenges of converting?
T he more you understand
how a Roth I RA works, the
moreyou will appreciate
IR A- "Taxed to T ax-Free"
Offset Planning.TM

AROTH IRAHAS3 BIG
ADVANTAGES OVER A
TRADITIONAL IRA.
First and foremost, the
money you withdraw from
a Roth IRA can be 100%
income tax-free.
Second, the original
owner is never forced to
take required minimum
distributions from a Roth.
Finally, unlike a standard
IRA, qualified Roth IRA
withdrawals will not trigger
a jump in your Social
Security taxable rate


TAX-FREE FOR
GENERATIONS
A Roth IRA also allows
you to leave a tax-free
legacy to your children and
your grandchildren. The
full amount of your Roth
IRA can be spread over
their lifetime and they will
never pay a penny of tax.

FORTUNATELY, YOU
CAN CONVERT AN
IRATOAROTH
T he T ax Increase Prevention
and Reconciliation
Act (T IPRA) included
provisions for converting a
traditional IRA to a Roth
IRA-significant because it
allows for tens of millions
more Americans to now be
eligibleto gain the benefits
of tax-free income


ASMARTERWAY
TO REACH YOUR
RETIREMENT GOALS
By possibly reducing the impact of
the cost associated
with converting IRA-
"Taxed to T ax-F ree" Offset
PlanningTM helps remove
the single biggest barrier to
achieving the benefits of a
Roth IRA. In the process
it provides a smarter, faster
way to reach your goals-
whether you want to build
tax-free future income for
your retirement, or achieve
an income tax-free legacy
for your children and
grandchildren.

Spinal stenosis a major cause of back pain


To Your

Good

Health



by Paul G. Donohue, M.D.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Sixty-two
must be the age when everything
falls apart. I'm there. My latest body
part to give way is my back. I have
back pain a considerable amount
of the time. It finally brought me to
a doctor, who tells me I have spinal
stenosis. I have been told to take
Aleve for my pain, and I'm sched-
uled for physical therapy. I don't
have great hopes of a cure. What
exactly is this? What else can be
done for it? T.R.
ANSWER: Spinal stenosis ac-
counts for about one-third of all
cases of low-back pain. It's an elu-


sive concept that calls for an anat-
omy lesson. The backbones (verte-
brae, spinal column) have a tunnel
running through them the spinal
canal. In that canal or tunnel is the
spinal cord and spinal nerves. Spi-
nal stenosis signifies that the spinal
canal has narrowed and is pressing
on the spinal cord or spinal nerves.
That, in turn, produces back pain
that can spread to the buttocks, the
back of the thighs or the lower leg.
The pain worsens on standing or
walking, and goes away when the
person sits.
Aging is the most important fac-
tor in developing spinal stenosis.
Back ligaments, which hold the
backbones in place, thicken and
calcify. Arthritic changes in the
backbones sprout bone spurs that
impinge on the canal. Back discs
- the spongy shock absorbers be-
tween adjacent backbones de-
generate and crumble, and that nar-
rows the canal and exerts pressure
on the spine and spinal nerves.
Non-surgical treatment employs
physical therapy to strengthen and
stretch back muscles in an attempt


to relieve pressure on the spine and
its nerves. Anti-inflammatory med-
icines like your Aleve control pain.
You might need stronger pain med-
icines. Epidural injections of corti-
sone ease inflammation and give
the spinal canal and spinal nerves
more room. "Epidural" means the
injection is made into a space in
the spinal canal above its covering
membrane. Surgery is a solution
when these measures fail.
The pamphlet on back pain dis-
cusses the many conditions that
lead to one of medicine's biggest
problems. It describes different
conditions and their treatments. To
obtain a copy, write to: Dr. Donohue
- No. 303W, Box 536475, Orlando,
FL 32853-6475. Enclose a check or
money order (no cash) for $4.75
U.S./$6 Canada with the recipient's
printed name and address. Please
allow four weeks for delivery.

DEAR DR. DONOHUE: Will you
repeat the article on a runny nose
when eating? My husband has it,
and it's embarrassing to him. -
J.W


ANSWERS: Some explain why
noses run upon eating by invoking
sensitivity to temperature changes,
i.e., hot or cold food. Or it could be
that spices start the nose dripping.
Chewing might trigger a reflex that
makes the nose run. And, in all
truth, the reason could be some-
thing that remains a mystery.
Atrovent nasal spray, a prescrip-
tion item, can sometimes stanch the
drip. A drying antihistamine taken
an hour before meals is another
way to keep the nose dry. People
shouldn't resort to medicine before
every meal. They should save it for
occasions when a drippy nose is a
source of embarrassment.
This curiosity has a name: gusta-
tory rhinorrhea.
Dr. Donohue regrets that he is unable to answer
individual letters, but he will incorporate them
in his column whenever possible. Readers may

health newsletters at

"Moving To The Mayflower

Is An Investment In Peace Of Mind"


For Ann and Donald Paulsen,
The Mayflower means peace of
mind. "We wanted to make
our own plans for this next
phase of our lives, rather than
depending on our children,"
says Ann. "With healthcare
costs going up, moving to
The Mayflower was definitely
a good investment for our


future. In a troubled economy,
who knows what long-term
care is going to cost several
years from now?"

A life dedicated to equal rights

Rollins College honors Stetson Kennedy
for his achievements in race relations I


KRISTY VICKERY
GUEST REPORTER
At age 93, Stetson Kennedy
may not have the physical
characteristics of a hero -
his muscles are not bulging,
his frame is small and his
senses may not be as keen
as they once were but
his courage, perseverance,
determination and selfless-
ness are all traits that domi-
nate his character.
Kennedy has used these
traits throughout his life to
infiltrate the Ku Klux Klan
in the 50s, and write award-
winning books and articles
about racial segregation in
America, while playing a
large role in obtaining equal
rights for all Americans, as
well as working alongside
great historical figures such
as Eatonville's Zora Neale
Hurston.
Kennedy said it was not
easy growing up in an era
where you would get shot
over shaking hands with a
person of another race, es-
pecially since he believed
segregation was unjust. He
decided at a young age to
fight to change it.
"I have seen a lot of things
in my life in technology,
communications and trans-


portation, and going to the
moon, but that doesn't im-
press me nearly as much
as the changes like the im-
provement in race relations
and racial justice," Kennedy
said. "I don't like living in an
unjust society."
Rollins College in Win-
ter Park honored Kennedy's
work in race relations on
March 4 with the Alfred J.
Hanna Award.
This unjust society em-
powered him to risk his
life to expose the KKK and
dismantle white suprema-
cist groups across Florida
after World War II. He doc-
umented the information
he collected from the KKK
and other experiences of
this era, such as marching
with Martin Luther King
Jr., in his books, "The Klan
Unmasked", "The Jim Crow
Guide", "Southern Expo-
sure" and "After Appomat-
tox".
He also used his experi-
ences and knowledge on ra-
cial discrimination to help
gain equality among all
men and women, no matter
the race.
"I helped fellow Ameri-
cans get to the ballot box
down South, the poll box....
I worked on that for years

and finally got that for ev-
erybody," Kennedy said.
His lifelong work has got-
ten him the recognition of
many different awards, such
as the Florida Folk Heritage
Award, the Florida Gover-
nor's Heartland Award, as
well as becoming an induct-


ee of the Florida Artists Hall
of Fame. He is the second
recipient of Rollins' Alfred J.
Hanna Award.
Bruce Stephenson, pro-
fessor of Environmental
Studies at Rollins College,
said Kennedy is an icon that
everyone should hear.
"So here's someone who
worked his way into the
Ku Klux Klan, ran for sena-
tor of Florida and hung out
with the existential philoso-
phers Jean Paul Sartre," Ste-
phenson said. "I mean that
doesn't happen every day."
Julian Chambliss, assis-
tant professor of History at
Rollins College, said a small
committee chose Kennedy
for the award due to his

contributions to race relations, as
well as the work on environmental
issues.
"We really want to try to give the
award to people whose work and
lives significantly give an under-
standing of Florida and the Florida
experience," Chambliss said. "So Dr.
Kennedy clearly qualifies to that
regard, and we were happy to give
him that award."
Kennedy's life has been one of
fulfillment. He has experienced and
achieved many things in his life, but
he said one of the biggest surpris-
es was living long enough to see a
black man become president.
"When Obama was elected my
phone started ringing and strang-
