After more than 20 hours
of discussions about the
pros and cons of merging
the Maitland Historical So-
ciety and the Maitland Art
Center, the organizations
came to one inescapable
conclusion.
"In Maitland, art is his-
tory and history is art, and
you just can't separate the


two," said Victor Diaz, Art
Center Board chairman,
during Monday's City Coun-
cil meeting in which the or-
ganizations announced the
planned merger.
Talks between the orga-
nizations about consolidat-
ing started in May, facilitat-

Conduct

questioned
ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Some unkind exchanges on
the City Commission dais
led to an uncomfortable dis-
cussion between commis-
sioners on Monday about
decorum during meetings.
And that feeling was re-
flected by some citizens
who stood up to chastise the
Commission for inconsis-
tent treatment of speakers
during official discussions.
"I sit in the audience, and
I see different treatment
of commissioners, differ-
ent treatment of guests and
different treatment of citi-
zens," resident Pat McDon-
ald said. "It's uncomfortable
to watch this happen."
The elephant in the room
hijacked discussions repeat-
edly during the meeting, as
commissioners weighed in
individually on some speak-
ers being cut off, cut short
or not allowed to speak at
meetings.
"I think we should agree
guidelines should be set,"
Commissioner Margie
Bridges said, pointing her
comments toward Mayor
Ken Bradley. "I believe you
should be consistent, sir,
across the board."
McDonald had suggest-
ed the city adopt a civility
pledge similar to one used by

portunityto take advantage
of the linkage between art
and history," Knight said at
the meeting.
The Art Center, with an
annual budget of about
$650,000, and the Histori-
cal Society, with an annual
budget of about $300,000,
do not individually have
"a lot of clout" in the area

Fire captain appeals termination


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER


A Winter Park Fire Depart-
ment captain who was fired
will appeal his case to the
Winter Park Civil Service
Board.
Captain Randall Mells
was the head of the fire in-
spection unit, which de-
cides if a fire is suspicious.
According to a disciplinary
action report and a tran-


script of a pre-disciplinary
hearing, Mells was at home,
sick with the flu, on Oct. 15
when he got a page about a
fire on South Orlando Av-
enue.
The report states that
Mells went out to his truck,
grabbed his radio and
placed it on his bedside ta-
ble, listening to the call. He
also checked to make sure
his fire inspectors were on
the way.

Outburst during project approval


JENNY ANDREASSON
OBSERVER STAFF

A re-vote to finalize changes
to the Maitland Town Cen-
ter development agreement
caused Councilman Phil Bo-
nus to lose his cool.
At the Maitland City
Council's Nov. 23 meeting,
Councilwoman Bev Re-
ponen asked for a re-vote
because she mistakenly
voted "yes" to a motion that
removed all city-owned
land from the Town Center
development agreement. It
also gave the developer the
option to buy city property
not used by the fire station
and city hall projects at a
minimal price.
The motion was ap-
proved 4-1, with Council-
man Phil Bonus dissenting.
While Mayor Doug Kinson
contemplated on whether
to allow a re-vote, Bonus
seemed to boil over.
"Oh I don't see why not,"
he said of letting Reponen
re-vote. "The three of you

shouldn't race through this.
This is your moment, where
you're selling off all the city
property. Now you've got
your three votes. What's the
big rush?"
Councilwoman Linda
Frosch quickly called a
"point of order," meant to
silence the councilman, but


he continued to question
the mayor.
He was called out of or-
der by both Kinson and
Councilman Jeff Flowers,
and urged to "please stop it"
by Frosch, and replied "I'm
making a comment. I don't
really care!"
Kinson called for a five-

minute break, with Frosch
uttering, "Oh my God... This
is ridiculous."
"It's incredibly unfor-
tunate one member of the
body continues to disre-
spect the body itself and the
forum of which civil matters
can be addressed," Kinson
said when they returned to
the dais.
A motion to reconsider
the vote passed, and Re-
ponen joined Bonus on the
dissenting side, changing
her vote on the amendment
to "no." The motion still
passed 3-2.
Also the contracts for
program managers AVCON
and ACi were approved. The
two firms will conduct the
public bidding process for
the fire station and city hall
and then act as managers
during construction, a pro-
cess Reponen said will save
the city money and time,
and give the city more con-
trol over the projects.


"I think it's also going to
allow somebody else to pick
the most qualified bidder
out of the bunch because
of the criteria that has been
established and will be used
fairly across the board," she
said.
The approved amend-
ment to the development
agreement officially frees
the city to move forward
with the fire station and city
hall.
It strips Brossier Co. of
about one-third of the land
for its four-block mixed-use
downtown, a project that is
stalled because of a lack of
funding.
The fire station will still
be built on the current site
at Maitland and Packwood
avenues, and city hall is
proposed to be built next
to its current site, at Inde-
pendence and Packwood
avenues.

DECORUM I Sen. Paula Dockery's visit was at the center of the conduct talks


< continued from the front page
the Chamber of Commerce,
though she acknowledged
that previous calls for a re-
turn of decorum to meet-
ings had gone unheeded.
Tensions on the Com-
mission had come to a head
during a Nov. 23 meeting
when Florida Sen. Paula
Dockery addressed the
Commission regarding an
upcoming special state leg-
islative session to revive
SunRail. At one point dur-


ing Dockery's presentation,
Bradley stopped her from
speaking, saying that she
was out of time. This led
to a quick, terse exchange
between Bradley and Com-
missioner Beth Dillaha.
"I apologize for the disre-
spect from our mayor," Dil-
laha said.
"That comment was out
of line, commissioner,"
Bradley quickly replied.
The two had long op-
posed each other's views on


the deal that would bring
SunRail through downtown
Winter Park.
A special meeting was
called on Dec. 7 in an at-
tempt to defuse the situa-
tion, with Dillaha asking
for a more respectful at-
titude toward dissenting
opinions.
"I think we should be fair
to everybody who speaks
at meetings," Dillaha said.
"Politics shouldn't deter-
mine who gets to speak and


for how long."
But Commissioner Karen
Diebel said that Bradley's
motivations behind short-
ening Dockery's presenta-
tion and keeping a stricter
watch on residents' time
limits at the microphone
are in the interest of timeli-
ness and efficiency.
"Monday's Commission
meeting lasted more than
eight hours," Diebel said,
calling for improved orga-
nization and efficiency dur-


ing meetings. "It's ridicu-
lous."
Dillaha said she hopes
to strike a balance between
respect and efficiency at
meetings, to allow for an
open discussion without
having meetings run exces-
sively long.
"We need to be respect-
ful of all opinions," she said,
cautiously optimistic about
discussions in recent weeks.
"We'll see how it goes."

Knights bowl-bound after big win


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The Knights are heading
to their third bowl game in
five years, and this time it's
closer than ever so close
that UCF could be called
the home team. The St. Pe-
tersburg Bowl, in its second
year, will host UCF and Rut-
gers at 8 p.m. on Saturday,
Dec. 19.
How the Knights got that
far is a tale of redemption
after they lost their first two
Conference USA games this
season, only to rally back
and win their last six.
On Nov. 28 it was the
University of Alabama at
Birmingham trying to rally,
as the Knights played their
final regular season game
and carried it into the sec-
ond half. The Knights would
hold on to beat the UAB
Blazers 34-27, avenging an
embarrassing 15-0 season-
ending loss to the Blazers in
2008.
As has been the case with
the Knights in recent games,
they led from the outset,
never relinquishing the mo-
mentum to the Blazers. At
one point in the game the


Knights had a 17-point ad-
vantage over the Blazers, but
watched that gap narrow in
a fourth-quarter comeback.
But with a resounding
final snub by the Knights,
they blocked an extra-point
kick attempt that would
have brought the Blazers
within a touchdown of ty-
ing the game. Then they re-
tained possession until the
clock ran out on a strong
season.
Six different Knights
would combine in the
team's four touchdowns
and two field goals.
In a freak statistical
anomaly the Knights were
outgained significantly in
the game, but still managed
a win. Good field position
on strong punt and kick-
off returns from Quincy
McDuffie and AJ. Guyton
gave the Knights a shorter
field to cover to make it to
the end zone. The Knights
would gain 435 yards in the
game to the Blazers' 527.
An issue that haunted the
Knights early in the season
came back with a vengeance
Nov. 28, as they managed
only 2 of 10 third-down
conversions, with three of

them just outside of the red
zone.
Senior Cory Hogue again
dominated on defense,
picking up 12 tackles in the
game. Junior Bruce Miller
found Blazers quarterback
Joe Webb twice in the back-
field, sacking him back 12
yards.
The Knights' big finish
set a few marks in the Con-
ference USA record books.
Only one other team in


conference history started
a season 0-2 in conference
play and finished with six
straight wins. They also re-
corded their highest rank-
ing in school history for
rushing defense, coming in
fourth in the nation.
That defense may have
the upper hand against the
Rutgers Scarlet Knights,
who are ranked No. 99 in the
nation in total offense with
322 yards per game. But the


Scarlet Knights' defense is
one of the best in the coun-
try, ranked No. 19.
So far this year Rutgers
has yet to lose to a Florida
team. They also have yet to
beat a team with as good a
record as the Knights.
Come Dec. 19, the Knights
will find out if they have the
will to win their first bowl
championship.

Wildcats shock U.S.-ranked team


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

Winter Park took down a
basketball titan on Saturday
night, as they knocked out
Montverde Academy 55-
52. The shocker win came
despite the Wildcats (6-1)
missing 15 of 16 three-point
attempts on the night.
Abysmal shooting marred
an otherwise strong effort
by Winter Park, which cul-
minated in an ironic twist
and sealed a nail-biter fin-
ish. It was Montverde (6-1)
that couldn't come up with
a final three-point shot to
tie the game with a second
left on the clock.
Leading the way for the


Wildcats, Austin Rivers
scored 18 points, many of
them to the outside. Robert
Lovaglio narrowly missed a
double-double as he nailed
12 points and eight re-
bounds in the game.
The Eagles were the
highest-ranked team ever
beaten by Winter Park. They
were ranked as high as No.
11 nationally coming into
the game.
The two teams will have
a potential rematch at the
City of Palms Christmas
tournament on Saturday,
Dec. 19.
Just a couple weeks into
the season, the Lake How-
ell Silver Hawks are already
knee-deep in conference


play. With the perennial
state contenders always in
the spotlight, a stacked sea-
son awaited them as they
tipped off at Lake Brantley
just after Thanksgiving.
Now they're 4-2 on the
season after big losses to Dr.
Phillips and Bishop Moore.
Their most recent loss to
the hornets by a score of 55-
44 was their lowest-scoring
game by 25 points.
After a three-game road
trip they'll be back home
at 7:30 p.m. Friday against
Lyman before taking a 21-
day break. The Greyhounds
have dominated the season
so far, going 5-1 to start.
They fell 53-45 to Hagerty
on Dec. 11.

Knights back in the W column


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The Knights are back to
their winning ways on the
basketball court following
a 63-50 smack down on
Bethune Cookman Friday
night.
Leading the way in scor-
ing was AJ. Tyler, who has
come on as a consistent
force at the basket. He
dropped 18 points in the
hoop, and picked up six re-
bounds in the process.
Isaac Sosa regained some
lost scoring touch, picking
up 13 points and nailing
three of five attempts from
three-point land.
A.J. Rompza caught fire
on the court, carrying his
team's momentum on de-
fense and picking up some
scoring of his own. He'd nail


12 points, going a perfect
2-for-2 from outside the
arc, and 6-for-6 from the
free throw line. He also led
the team in steals, with five
grabs in the game.
A less familiar face stole
some of the spotlight under
the basket, as PJ. Gaynor
came off the bench to grab
nine rebounds and 10 points
in 19 minutes on the floor.
Meanwhile Marcus Jor-
dan's increased playtime on
the court netted less than
stellar results. In 17 minutes
on the floor he bricked his
only two shot attempts and
picked up four rebounds
and a steal.
All of that scoring effort
came despite the Knights'
tired effort early in the
first half of the game. They
watched as Bethune Cook-
man outpaced them by as

many as seven points before
they began to turn the score
around.
In the process BCC's
scrappy defense did every-
thing it could to keep pace


with the Knights, trumping
UCF in points in the paint,
second chance shots, fast
breaks and bench scoring.
The Knights (7-2) travel
to take on the Uconn Hus-


kies at 1 p.m. Sunday, in their
last game before the Christ-
mas break. The Huskies will
be coming off an 11-day
break following a 64-61 loss
to Kentucky.


Business


Kona Ice has opened a new franchise
in Central Florida. Besides this being
a unique new business in the area,
Kona Ice is raising thousands for local
organizations. Usually you will see the
new Kona Ice truck in Orange County
at youth sporting events, school func-
tions, etc. While it's parked at these
events serving up shaved ice, the
community organization is getting
a large percentage of sales for free.
They've only been at it for a few
weeks and Kendall has already have


given thousands of dollars to local or-
ganizations.

prejudice of good order and
discipline."
"To suggest, as you did
during your hearing," White
wrote, "that you are not re-
sponsible at the scene of an
emergency to the designat-
ed incident commander, or
that you have the authority
to countermand a direct or-
der given to you [by] an in-
cident commander without
his knowledge, confirms
that you either are incur-
ably insubordinate or do
not have the required judg-
ment to be a public safety


officer."
Two weeks after the fire,
Mells had a pre-disciplinary
hearing with members of
the fire department. Mells,
who did not return phone
calls seeking comment,
apologized to his superior
officers at the hearing.
"I guess the first thing is
obviously to to apologize,
and that there was never any
intent to undermine the au-
thority of the on-scene of-
ficer, incident commander,
command staff," Mells said
in the hearing transcript.
The Winter Park Fire De-
partment's Union is siding


with Mells. David Devreaux,
the union's president, was
present at the initial hear-
ing, and will also be at the
Civil Service Board hearing,
along with a union lawyer.
Devreaux said that, by
their interpretation of the
fire department's Standard
Operating Guides, Mells'
decision to counteract the
incident commander's call
was within his authority.
"That's basically the
union's position: Randall
(Mells) followed the steps he
was supposed to," Devreaux
said, "although he made a
decision that countermand-


ed the incident command-
er. But he has the authority,
according to the black and
white SOGs (Standard Op-
erating Guides)."
Clarissa Howard, a
spokeswoman for the city
of Winter Park, said the city
didn't wish to comment on
the specifics of Mells' case
until it's finished with the
appeals process.
"We are being respectful
of that process and would
like wait until that hearing
has been conducted," How-
ard wrote in an e-mailed
statement.
Mells and the union were


supposed to make their case
to the Civil Service Board on
Dec. 9, but that hearing was
pushed back at Mells' re-
quest. The board is made up
of five citizens, appointed
to the board by the Winter
Park City Commission, and
a representative from both
the police department and
the fire department.
The board serves as an
appeals board for members
of the police and fire depart-
ments who have been fired.
The date for Mells' hearing
will be set at the board's Jan.
5 meeting.


ART I Maitland Art Center and Historical Society to build strategic plan to merge

ing funding, Knight said.
But together, they are in the
top 15, of organizations in
the region, she added.
Merging would also al-
low the organizations to
have a larger and stronger
membership base. Cur-
rently, only 14 people have
memberships in both the
Art Center and the Histori-


cal Society, Knight said. It
would streamline opera-
tions, allowing them to have
one combined campus.
The MaitlandArt Center, a
former artist colony built by
Andre Smith, is surrounded
by the Maitland Historical
Museum and the Telephone
Museum on Packwood Av-
enue. The Waterhouse Resi-
dence Museum and the Car-
pentry Shop Museum are


located at Lake Lily.
According to the Com-
munity Foundation of Cen-
tral Florida, there are 17 dif-
ferent mergers in process in
Central Florida.
The Maitland organiza-
tions will now focus on put-
ting together a merger plan
that addresses a budget,
staffing and a board. They
will form taskforces and so-
licit input from their mem-


bers and the public during
the four-month process.
The Art Center's lease
with the city is nearing an
end, and it plans to ask for a
six-month extension while
the merger plan is worked
out.
Michael Culbertson,
president of the Historical
Society board, said bringing
his organization to the next
level will have a lasting ben-


efit.
"It's a step we're needed
to take to do what we do for
the citizens of Maitland to-
day but also citizens of Mait-
land in the future," Culbert-
son said.
Knight agreed, saying the
merger will only make the
organzations stronger.
"One plus 1 can equal 3,"
Knight said.

The Florida Legislature
approved SunRail last week,
and Gov. Charlie Crist was
scheduled to sign the bill
on Wednesday in Orlando.
This represents an historic
move that will benefit
Maitland and Central
Florida for all time.
After decades of effort,
our residents are finally
afforded an alternative
mode of transportation
to the gas-guzzling, air-
polluting, road-clogging
automobile. But it is not
just the opportunity for
Maitland residents to ride
SunRail that is important,
as there are many other
ways that Maitland will
benefit.

Property owners benefit
The impact SunRail will
have on our downtown
is huge. Any resident who
lives within a mile of


the SunRail station will
experience a dramatic
increase in their property
values. Why? Because as
residential properties near
rail stations are put up
for sale, many across the
country who look to move
to Central Florida will look
for homes within a certain
distance to transit, thereby,
increasing the appeal to
buyers. Granted, this may
not be seen for years, but
if you have the time to
wait, you will be awarded
a significant financial
windfall when it is least
expected.

The perfect location
Our SunRail station
location, between the First
Colony Bank property
and the Parker Lumber
property, is the perfect
transit location. It is
located on the north end

MAYOR


of Maitland's downtown
in close proximity to the
pedestrian and bicycle
overpass at Maitland
Boulevard allowing access
to riders on both sides
of busy U.S. Highway
17/92. The location is
also important as the
Parker Lumber property
represents our only
opportunity on the north
side of our downtown for
an additional pedestrian-
friendly project to become
a reality. SunRail will most
certainly be the catalyst
to make this happen. And
because Maitland's station
is located on the north
side of our downtown, the
transportation impacts on
our downtown core will be
mitigated.
And there is also a
positive impact on projects
throughout our downtown,
even though the station
is located on the north
side, as trolleys can easily
and quickly bring visitors
to our coveted cultural
corridor and to our central
downtown core.

Economic impact
Overall, SunRail will bring
much needed jobs to the
region. Hundreds and
probably thousands of
people will work to bring
SunRail to reality over the

next two years. My hope is
that these jobs, over time,
will become permanent
as the companies who
employ the additional
workers grow along with
a rebounding and vibrant
economy.

The cost
But make no mistake about
it, with all of the benefits
that SunRail will bring to
Maitland, it costs money
to build and maintain
commuter rail. That is
why the decision at this
time was so important.
In making this decision,
the Florida Legislature is
able to take advantage
of hundreds of millions
of dollars that would
not have been available
to build our stations.
Maitland's capital cost is a
fraction of the total. I have
always been supportive of
finding a regional funding
alternative to ongoing
operational costs, keeping
the ongoing cost to the
Maitland taxpayer to a
minimum.

Our family's benefit
And finally, and probably
less evident, is that SunRail
will have a positive impact
on our children and on
our family's quality of life.


Maitland and SunRail


Maitland's commitment
to SunRail will show our
children we are concerned
about their future and
our environment, and it
will allow our families
additional flexibility to get
to events downtown and
in other areas of Central
Florida, such the new
downtown Dr. Phillips
Performing Arts Center
and the new home of the
Orlando Magic, the Amway
Center.

Thank you!
My sincere thanks go out
to all who have worked
so hard to make SunRail
a reality in Maitland;
to City Council for
unanimously voting each
step of the way to bring
this to fruition; to Mr. Bob
Miller for heading up a
taskforce that initially and
expeditiously provided the
basis upon which Council's
views were built; to our
great staff for working
diligently to provide the
information required such
that Council could make
the right decisions; and
most importantly, to our
residents who recognize
and support efforts that
have shown our city as a
leader in Central Florida
and made Maitland a
"Community For Life."

Putting the normal back in life


ABRAHAM ABORAYA
GUEST REPORTER


Only a few days after arriv-
ing, Craig Castor's foster
child had a simple question:
He'd had lunch the last two
days at school and he want-
ed to know if he was going
to eat tomorrow.
Castor told him that as
long as he was in Castor's
house, he would have lunch
every day at school.
"I have to tell myself, 'OK,
Craig, don't cry. Man up,"
Castor said.
Castor and his wife, Sar-
ah, are now foster parents to
a 9-year-old and a 10-year-
old, whose names are being
withheld by the Observer at
the Castors' request. Their
mother was arrested in Lake
Eola Park and charged with
being drunk in public, send-
ing them into the system.
Before that incident,
they bounced from shelter
to shelter. Before that, they
squatted in a house with no
running water and electric-





40-42465


The Castor's foster chil-
dren are now about two
years behind in school and
need tutoring. One of the
children also needed an eye
exam and glasses. These are
expenses foster parents usu-
ally have to pay out of pock-
et and, if they have limited
resources, sometimes must
live without. But a new
nonprofit organization, The
Foundation for Foster Chil-
dren, was able to foot the
bill.
"One thing I can tell
you from the heart, it (the
Foundation) really makes
you feel like you made the
right decision to step out
on a limb and foster chil-
dren," Castor said. "It's one
thing to offer your money
and resources, it's another
to bring children into your
home and raise them. These
are gifts from God."
The Foundation was
founded 18 months ago by
Winter Park resident Mi-
chelle Chira-Carlton and
three other board members
who spent 15 months trying
to figure out what was miss-
ing in Orange, Osceola and
Seminole county foster care
systems.
The organization gives
foster kids access to educa-
tion and normalcy, pools
the resources of other orga-
nizations, and raises aware-


ness in the community.
Chira-Carlton said peo-
ple who adopt foster chil-
dren or are foster parents
are only given between $12
and $14 a day for a child,
plus a $300 annual stipend
for clothes.
Often times it's the little
things the normalcy -
that gets cut. Money foryear-
books, music lessons, prom
dresses, summer camps, ka-
rate lessons, sports equip-
ment, toys.
How about just a happy
birthday wish? Many fos-
ter kids can go their entire
birthday without anyone
recognizing it, so they start-
ed the Birthday Club, which
gets them a custom cake, a
card and a gift.
"When nobody tells you
happy birthday, it's a huge
self-esteem issue," Chira
Carlton said. "People don't
think they're valued if they
think nobody cares."
And while the founda-
tion has only been fully
operational for 18 months,
they're already garner-
ing attention, including a
$5,000 grant from Bank of
America.
"This was very exciting,"
Chira-Carlton said about
the award. "In part because
they were looking at so
many different people in
the community who have
done so much, it's been an

honor to even be consid-
ered, frankly."
It is programs such as the
Birthday Club that got the
attention of Bank of Amer-
ica. In an e-mailed state-
ment, John Moskos, Central
Florida President at Bank
of America, said, "Michelle
has had an immense impact
on addressing the needs of
Central Florida's foster chil-
dren and their families, and
she has positively impacted
the lives of thousands as a
result."


Heidi Jordan, the execu-
tive director of the organi-
zation, wasn't looking for
a job when she met Chira-
Carlton. She started off as a
volunteer.
"It really, really moved me
and touched me that there
was this group of women
who came together to help
foster children," Jordan
said. "I just really respect her
and have no idea how she
has the energy to do all that
she does."

OBSERVER STAFF
Bowls of potato pancake
batter stood ready, and spat-
ulas were in hand as the first
batch of latke cakes started
to sizzle in hot olive oil.
At one point contestants
in the Family Latke Cook-
Off thought they might need
a Hanukkah miracle when
power to the skillets, hot
plates and portable cookers
flickered on and off. Fortu-
nately it was soon restored
and the aroma of onion and
potato filled the outdoor pa-
vilion, delighting the Jewish
Community Center mem-
bers and families at the new
Rosen Center Campus in
south Orlando on Saturday,
Dec. 12.
Jenn Matzner and chil-
dren Jacob, 11, Josh, 8, and
Shannon, 5, competed with
a classic latke recipe on the
second night of Hanukkah.
"I peeled the potatoes and
cracked the eggs," Josh said.
"Our family makes latkes
all the time but it's really my
husband and children who
make them, I'm not Jewish,"
Jenn joked, adding that the
kids enjoy mixing the batter
of scallions, eggs, potatoes
and matzo meal with their
bare hands.
Next to team Matzner was
Yael Miller and her 11-year-
old daughter, Danny. Mill-
er's recipe included nutmeg
and sweet potato and she
plans to translate her love
of cooking into a new cake
business. The Millers also


make sufganiot, a fried jelly
donut that is another tradi-
tional Hanukkah favorite.
The judges Michael
Martin, GM of The Palm
Restaurant, Edgar Schaked,
owner of Schakolad Choc-
olate Factory in the Win-
ter Park Village, and Brian
Sward, Sous Chef of Le Cel-
lier Steakhouse at Epcot -
awarded Miller second place
in the competition.
Following the latke cook-
off, guests were treated to a
special concert of Hanuk-
kah and Broadway songs by
The Theatre South Teaching
Artists Ensemble and chil-
dren of the JCC.
Hanukkah Happenings
were also enjoyed by chil-
dren at the Maitland loca-
tion on Saturday, Dec 12 in-
cluding games, a scavenger
hunt, and latke making.

A little Hanukkah history
Hanukkah began at sun-
down Friday, Dec. 11 and
celebrates the rededication
of the Temple of Jerusa-
lem. Antiochus IV Epipha-
nes, King of Syria, sought
to forcibly impose Hellenis-
tic teachings on the Jewish
people. His Assyrian-Greek
army took over the temple
in Jerusalem and built altars
to pagan gods. A bloody rev-
olution ensued and in 165
BC Judas Maccabee led the
Jews to recapture the tem-
ple and to build a new al-
tar. However only one day's

HANUKKAH I The RothJCC provides educational, social programs and more


< continued from A10
supply of olive oil could be
found for the rededication
ceremony. Miraculously the
small amount of oil burned
for eight days which began
the tradition of Hanukkah.
The word Hanukkah is He-
brew for "dedication" and is
also known as the Festival of
Lights, celebrating the vic-
tory of light over darkness.
A Hanukkah menorah can
be made of eight candles or
cotton wicks and olive oil
plus a helper candle called
a shamash used to light the
others. A new candle is add-
ed each night and the me-
norah is often placed in a
window. Candles are added
from right to left but are lit
from left to right. Blessings
are given and Hanukkah
songs are sung before and
after the lighting.
The Hanukkah custom
of giving gifts comes from
the tradition of giving mon-


ey or "gelt" to charity and
children sometimes receive
chocolate coins.
Wooden spinning tops
called dreidels are linked to
Hanukkah because when
Greek soldiers were near-
by, Jewish children would
pretend to play with the
dreidels while they were re-
ally learning the Torah, sa-
cred Jewish writings.

The JCC
There are nearly 20 syna-
gogues in the greater Or-
lando area including Ortho-
dox, Traditional, Conserva-
tive, and Reform. Since 1973
the Roth JCC has provided
educational, social, cultural,
and fitness programs to the
community and has a mis-
sion of strengthening fami-
ly, building community, and
promoting Jewish identity.
Membership is open to
everyone regardless of race,
religion or national origin.


A wide variety of programs
and services are open to
families including parent-
ing classes, pre-school, sum-
mer camps, scholarships as
well as programs and volun-
teer opportunities for adults
and seniors.
Since 1973 the Roth JCC
of Greater Orlando has pro-
vided educational, social,
cultural, and fitness pro-
grams to the community
with a mission to strength-
en family, build community,
and promote Jewish values.
Membership is open to ev-
eryone regardless of race,
religion or national origin
at the two campuses. A wide
variety of programs and ser-
vices are open to families
including parenting classes,
pre-school, summer camps,
after school programs for
which scholarships are
available.
Amy Schwartz, Market-
ing Director for Roth JCC of
Greater Orlando describes


the Early Childhood Learn-
ing Centers pre-school pro-
gram as "our pride and joy
with an amazing curriculum
and staff with an average of
over fourteen years tenure."
The preschool program was
rated #1 in the Orlando area
by Nickelodeon Parents
Connect-2009 Parents' Picks
and Orlando Moms guide.
Schwartz notes that half of
their students are not Jew-
ish and adds "It is amazing
to witness the lifelong con-
nections and friendships
that are made starting with
pre-school, summer camps,
and after school programs."
The JCC summer camp
experience can include spe-
cialties such as art, drama,
aquatics and sports from
eighteen months to high

Can Tiger come out


and play?


When alone I will some-
times yell at the TV. I will.
Sometimes I don't even
have to be alone. I watched
"60 Minutes" last Sunday
as President Obama ex-
plained his decision to up
the ante in Afghanistan and
by direct correlation, up
the number of dead Ameri-
can soldiers. Yet even more
meaningless death.
I am unsure what it is but
I find such interviews with
presidents largely unsatis-
factory. The questions al-
ways stop one or two ques-
tions short of requiring "a"
president to 1. either eat his
words in contradictions or,
2. acknowledge that policy
decisions are made for the
flimsiest of ill-considered
reasons.
President Obama can
claim all he wants that he
went through an exhaus-
tive process to determine
his course of action in Af-
ghanistan. And smugly pat
himself on the back for that
process. All it demonstrated
was that a smart man got
it dead wrong. That is the
painful reality of Obama's
election.


And some of us yell inef-
fectually into that yaw of
inevitable death.
Is it any wonder that we
fixate on the trivial, the in-
consequential, the tangen-
tial? Oh, and throw in our
collective sanctimonious
piety and we are in heaven.
We live for such "tragedies"
as Tiger Woods. We petty,
little mortals relish when
the mighty fall. Combine it
with moral outrage and we
literally tingle in vicarious
titillation. Society reverber-
ates like a tuning fork over
Tiger's many mistresses.
How could he? Gasp, gasp.
His wife is so lovely! Oh,
my! So faultless. So inno-
cent. The children! Sigh. He
was our hero!
A hero? Tiger Woods
plays golf. The man plays
golf for gawd's sake. That is
it. He golfs. He consistently
hits a small round ball into
a hole one or two strokes
better than his opponents.
He cashes in, makes mil-
lions in the process and
allegedly becomes the first
billion-dollar athlete. That's
heroic?
To me, the most impres-


sive thing I ever saw Tiger
accomplish was an outtake
from an advertisement he
was making. He took a golf
ball and proceeded to casu-
ally bounce the ball off the
end of a golf club as easily
as you'd bounce a basket-
ball on the floor. It was
awe-inspiring. He does this,
like, forever, and then non-
chalantly smacks the golf
ball, much as Alex Rodri-
guez would drill a baseball,
a mile down the fairway. As
a sideshow carney trick it
was genuinely incredible.
Tiger Woods drops out
of Stanford, joins the PGA,
makes a buzillion bucks
and we invest in him hero
status. He marries little Miss
Nordic Tenderloins (an au
pair no less), has the two
requisite children, starts a
charity and becomes a role
model for America. A role
model?
Does any of this sound
even remotely superficial? I
like Tiger Woods as a com-
petitor because he regularly
pounds the white boys at
their game. Golf and the
"elite" clubs that surround
the sport have historically
been havens where rich,
Protestant white folk gath-
ered to smugly (yet, oh, so
tastefully I'm sure) assert
their God given superior-
ity. No Jews, no foreigners
and for gawd sakes, none
of them! You know. Them!
Hit'um again. Harder.
Harder. Hit'um again, Tiger.
You just know in your heart
of hearts that any number
of our good ol' white boys
(and their imbecilic, Texas-
haired wives) love Tiger's
fall especially because he is
black. That is America. That
is pathetic. That is human.


I'm not one to (actually I
will) question other men's
tastes in women. That's the
beauty of desire. It takes
all types. And, I've said for
years there's someone out
there for everyone, prob-
ably five or six someone's
for everyone. In Tiger's case,
maybe two or three dozen.
Or so. Tiger seems to like
enhanced women, surgi-
cally augmented women of
big lips and bigger breasts.
Big brains not so much.
My friend Curtis said Tiger
selected women who had
nothing to lose. Bar host-
esses and the like (what-
ever that means). At some
level, it is apparent Tiger
did not genuinely like these
women, nor they him? You
don't "cash in" on someone
you care for's problems.
You just don't.
And America is aghast!
Why? Kids, I hate to dis-
abuse of a notion but men
are sometimes cads. We are.
And I think, historically
speaking, that the richer,
the more powerful the
man, well, such behavior as
Tiger's becomes less surpris-
ing. If I were to project Ti-
ger's motivation I'd say that
he is of two distinct quali-
ties. He is a control "freak"
and he is a sensation junkie.
He craves the thrill of the
adrenalin rush (that comes
from winning, the acco-
lades and from the sexual
excitement of the new and
novel). Life for Tiger has be-
come one rich entitlement.
And all that that implies. He
wants it. He'll have it. Who
is anyone to tell him other-
wise? Damn it.
We're all playing ama-
teur psychologist these days
when it comes to Tiger's


life. We made him. We own
him. In a manner of speak-
ing. Someday we'll toss him
aside, but not today.
What does a young man
do who has it all (from a
material perspective), who
had it all (as a societal val-
ue) the success, the fame,
the wealth, the gorgeous
wife and family. What does
the man do with his life
from here on out?
Only Tiger's wife, Elin,
knows the answer to the
big question on everyone's
mind.
"Can Tiger come out and
play?"
Golf! Play golf! Ha! Ha!
See? Isn't that so much
more fun and amusing, let
alone, morally gratifying
(we hypocritical, sanctimo-
nious voyeurs) trashing
Tiger than thinking too
hard on why Congress is
in the pocket of America's
financial and banking in-
terests or why President
Obama is condemning our
soldiers to death in worth-
less Afghanistan, that for
all intents and purposes,
Washington (the U.S.)
burns and we fiddle.
As Scarlett said, "Oh, fid-
dledy-dee, I'll think about
that tomorrow."
But in the salacious
meantime, did you hear
that Tiger was photo-
graphed nude and his, uh,
um, driver is...
Go ahead. Yell.
Louder! I can't hear you!

they don't belong, and do-
ing irreparable damage to
everyone's front yard and
private sanctuary, Central
Park. Our historic train sta-
tion will never look the
same.
You can bet that I was
againstcommuterrail, right?
If you want to succumb to
your preconceived ideologi-
cal notions, suit yourself.
The fact is that I was never
against commuter rail in
the right location, under
the right circumstances,
and at the right time. I rode
commuter rail to school
every day from the second
grade onward. Even at that
young age, I wasn't naive
enough to believe that com-
muter rail provides jobs and
road widening doesn't. And
I realized that commuter
rail complements widened
roads. It doesn't replace
them. U.S. Rep. John Mica
and state Rep. Dean Cannon
have assured you of contin-
ued Interstate 4 gridlock
by diverting attention and
dollars from road-widening


efforts that have actually
been proven in practice to
alleviate interstate gridlock
much more effectively than
commuter rail, with 3,500
passengers, could ever hope
to do. It's unforgivable and
disingenuous to pretend
otherwise.
Had we been wise
enough to widen I-4 and
run a federally incentivized
commuter rail train down
the middle of the interstate
like they do in Northern Vir-
ginia, I would have written
op-eds and met with edito-
rial boards around the state
to champion the cause. We
couldn't even figure out
how to spare Central Park
by serving Winter Park's very
limited needs with the Flor-
ida Hospital stop. Obama-
Rail will barely be used by
Winter Park citizens, some
of whom succumbed to the
scorched-earth tactics of
our local congressman. Oh,
and one more thing...
Please don't ask us to pre-
tend that The National Trust
for Historic Preservation


didn't grant a "threatened"
listing to protect Central
Park from the character-
changing effects of com-
muter rail, the commuter
rail station, and the com-
muter rail buses. Don't ask
us to pretend that the sole
commuter rail manufac-
turer didn't go out of busi-
ness, Tri-Rail doesn't need a
bailout despite near-record
ridership, the 61-mile com-
muter rail route is densely-
populated by those with
urban demographic profiles
(No NASCAR fans) and mass
transit cultural inclinations,
a large corporation isn't
fleecing the taxpayers, and
the Winter Park mayor's
hospital employees will use
their commuter rail trips to
snap up $395 handbags in
all colors to stimulate Win-
ter Park's economy.

duce a curmudgeon.
With me, it all started at Harvard.
I went there knowing damn little
about what makes people tick.
You see, I was smart enough to
get a scholarship, but not really
smart in any one subject.
A senior I met during my fresh-
man year said, "You seem quite ex-
pressive, major in English."
"But sometimes I don't know
the meaning of what I am saying,"
I said.


"Neither do the professors," he
said.
I figured it would be hard to fail
in English unless you were a com-
pletely unworldly-wise chump.
In my first English class, the pro-
fessor dumped a word on us and
asked for definitions.
The word was "curmudgeon."
He said to conduct a wide search
for etymological associations.
My dictionary said: Curmud-
geon: n. (origin unknown) circa
1577 "A crusty, ill-tempered, usu-
ally old man. The word may come
from French, "Coeur mdchant" (evil
heart)."
But curmudgeons are not neces-
sarily evil-hearted and not nec-
essarily male or old.
They may be freethinking peo-
ple who conceal their more tender
impulses behind a smoke screen of
misanthropy.
A good contemporary definition
of a curmudgeon might be, "An
enemy of phoniness and untruth,
who has the guts and the style to
speak his mind in an amusing yet
fearless way."
Real curmudgeons can't stand
sentimentality it cheapens senti-
ment.
These debunking iconoclasts
complain about the human race,
but may put up with certain indi-
viduals.
When I think of curmudgeons, I
automatically think first of "the old
curmudgeon" himself, H.L. Menck-
en also known as "the Sage of
Baltimore."
Mark Twain was a notable and
lovable curmudgeon, who grew
in sardonic curmudgeonliness as
his years piled up.


Visiting Angels Helps Spread Joy
to Our Seniors This Holiday Season

Visiting Angels starts community effort
"Stocking Stuffers for Seniors"


Orlando, FL (Dec.2009) Visiting Angels, Americas Choice in Homecare, has officially
kicked off "Stocking Stuffers for Seniors". They will be collecting donated items and
money donations in an effort to help brighten this holiday season for local senior
home residents by providing them with Holiday gifts.

The holiday season is supposed to be a happy and fun time that you share with your
loved ones. It is a time for gifts, food, and festivities. "I think in general as a society
we put most if not all of our focus and effort to make sure that Christmas is exciting
and memorable for those who we feel it should matter to most which is children.
Unfortunately, because of this, our seniors most often than not get pushed to the
way side and are forgotten," says CFO of Visiting Angels Orlando/Winter Park, Peg
Pickett. "We forget to realize that this holiday season is very important to people of
all ages. Everyone wants to wake up Christmas morning and open a gift and have
the feeling that someone remembers and cares about them." What most people do
not know is the reality that more than 50% of nursing home residents have no close
relatives, and 46% of them have no living children. It is no wonder that the rate of
depression among nursing facility residents can run as high as 50%, according to
some studies, with about 10 to 15% of residents suffering major depression and 25
to 35% suffering milder forms.

Because of this reason, Visiting Angels has created a community effort called
"Stocking Stuffers for Seniors". We will be collecting donated items that our seniors
could use in the nursing home, as well as taking donations which 100% of it will go
towards purchasing gifts for the residents. We will have drop off locations at which
you can bring by a new and unwrapped item that will be given as a holiday present
to a senior. House slippers, non-skid socks, night gowns, cross word puzzles and
word search books are just a few examples of items that can be donated which will
make this holiday season a little brighter for our nursing home residents.

They will be delivering gifts on December 19th to deserving Seniors with a local
Brownie Troop and Santa along with some special caregivers to help with any needs
for that day. "Please give from your heart for the Seniors in need." Says Peg Pick-
ett

Gifts and donations can be dropped off Monday thru Friday 9a-4p at the following
location: 625 Executive Dr, Winter Park, 32789, (407)236-9997We will be accepting
donations now thru December 15th.


Twain's bark may have been
worse than his bite, but he re-
mained crusty and irascible to the
end.
Twain was much concerned
with the "human predicament."
What that abstruse predicament
is has been the subject of debate.
The "predicament" does not
sweeten the temper of a thinking
person.
To confront an enigma is to
wonder And to wonder without
hope of resolution is to be frus-
trated.
A "curmudgeon" should be by
definition a reasonably intelligent,
truth-seeking person.
A crusty, ill-tempered person of
questionable intelligence is per-
haps better described as a "lout" -
not a "curmudgeon."
W.C. Fields was a curmudgeon
- as are (or were) Fred Allen, Tal-
lulah Bankhead, Jimmy Breslin,
Jonathan Swift, Samuel Johnson, Al
Capp, William F. BuckleyJr. (lofty
and courtly, but curmudgeonly
nevertheless), Peter De Vries, W.
Somerset Maugham, Robert Frost,
George S. Kaufman, Oscar Levant,
Henry Morgan, Nietzsche, Doro-
thy Parker, George Bernard Shaw,
John Simon, George F Will, Andy
Rooney, and many other brilliant
people.
Most curmudgeons are de-
pressed at the center of their be-
ings, perhaps by the erosion of
their early ideals.
Fred Alien said, "If I could get
my membership fee back, I'd resign
from the human race."
Aristotle said, "Melancholy men,
of all others, are the most witty."
The predominant target of great
curmudgeons is the foolish pride of
the human animal.
Ambrose Bierce, American
curmudgeon cum laude, defined
"admiration" as "our polite recog-
nition of another's resemblance to
ourselves."
He also said, "An acquaintance
is a person whom we know well
enough to borrow from, but not
well enough to lend to."
George Bernard Shaw: "A gov-
ernment that robs Peter to pay Paul
can always count upon the vote of
Paul."
Mohandas Gandhi, asked what
he thought of Western civilization,
said, "I think it would be a good
idea."
Mark Twain said, "I did not at-
tend his funeral, but I wrote a nice
letter saying I approved of it."
"The English," said Quentin
Crisp, "think incompetence is the
same thing as insincerity."
"How is it that little children are
so intelligent, and grown people
are so stupid?" asked Alexandre Du-
masfils. "It must be education that
does it."
"That all men are created equal
is a proposition to which no sane
individual has ever assented," said


Thursday, December 17, 2009 Page 15

Aldous Huxley.
Wilson Mizner said, "Those who
welcome death have only tried it
from the neck up."
"A person who is not a misan-
thrope at 40 can never have loved
mankind," wrote Nicolas Cham-
fort.
Alexander Smith said, "A man
who gazes at stars is at the mercy of
puddles in the road."
"Love" is a subject that enlists
interesting remarks from curmud-
geons:
"Love is a grave mental disease."
- Plato
"Love is a mutual misunder-
standing." Oscar Wilde
Wilde also said, "The Book of
Life begins with a man and a wom-
an in a garden. It ends with Revela-
tions."
And: "Love is like war: Easy to be-
gin, but very hard to stop."
"Where they love they do not de-
sire, and where they desire they do
not love." Freud
"Everything we do in life is based
on fear, especially love." Mel
Brooks
"Love is just another four-letter
word." Tennessee Williams
"Love is the child of illusion, and
the parent of disillusion." Miguel
De Unamuno
"Love is nothing else but an in-
satiate thirst of enjoying a greedily
desired object." Montaigne
"Love is a ridiculous passion
which hath no being but in play-
books and romances." Jonathan
Swift
"Thousands have lived without
love, not one without water." -
W.H. Auden
"Love is the wisdom of the fool
and the folly of the wise." Samuel
Johnson
"To say that you can love one
person all your life is like saying
that one candle will continue burn-
ing as long as you live." Leo Tol-
stoy
"Don't threaten me with love,
baby." Billie Holiday
"The war between the sexes
is the only one where both sides
regularly sleep with the enemy." -
Quentin Crisp
"She's the original good time
that was had by all." Bette Davis
"Never go to bed mad stay up
and fight." Phyllis Diller
The subject of "husbands" has
drawn the fire of many a curmud-
geon:
"Husbands are awkward things
to deal with; even keeping them in
hot water will not make them ten-
der." Mary Buckley
"Husbands are at their best as
lovers, when they are betraying
their wives." Marilyn Monroe
"Before marriage, your man de-
clares he would lay down his life
for you. After marriage, he won't
lay down the newspaper to talk to
you." Helen Rowland

Legendary coach opens


eatery in Lake Mary


I had only heard of the 'sec-
ond-to-none quality' of the
food served in the restau-
rants of former NFL Coach
Don Shula, and I certainly
expected a better than av-
erage steak when I visited
his brand-spanking-new
restaurant in Lake Mary. It
is honestly thrilling when a
restaurant exceeds expec-
tations in every way as
does the new Shula's 347
Grill. Combining sophis-
ticated decor, excellent
service, and truly great food


offerings, the great news is
Lake Mary has a great new
restaurant!
Named in honor of
Coach Shula's 347 career
victories, Shula's 347 Grill
is the latest in a line of suc-
cessful restaurants founded
on the tradition of Shula's
Steak Houses. The new res-
taurant magically combines
a casual atmosphere with a
level of sophistication that
makes it a perfect and
affordable restaurant for
everything from a family


outing to a business dinner
to a romantic dinner for
two. And most importantly,
the food is sensational!
We'll get to the steaks, but
first I have to share my ex-
citement for the specialty
seafood offerings, appetiz-
ers and gourmet salads.
Of the several appetizers
I tried, the greatness factor
applies to both the "Sweet
Chili Shrimp" and the ba-
con-wrapped BBQ shrimp.
Try them both and let me
know which you prefer.
Trust me, I'm still savoring
both of the distinctly dif-
ferent shrimp sensations.
Moving on to the salad
choices, their "traditional"
iceberg wedge proves to be
anything-but simply tra-
ditional with its seriously
chunky blue cheese dress-
ing with a perfect hint of
red onion. For those who
like their dressing 'balsam-
ic,' go for the expertly sea-
soned Tomato and Mozza-
rella Chop Salad, or try my
favorite the spicy, grilled
chicken salad with jack
cheese and a honey-lime


PHOTO COURTESY OF SHULA'S
Shula's 347 Grill recently opened in the Colonial Town Park shopping center in
Lake Mary. It is within the Westin Hotel Orlando North, at 2974 International Parkway.


vinaigrette dressing.
Each of the entrees is
a revelation in both taste
and presentation. Crazy as
I am for sushi, I immedi-
ately went for the Seared
Ahi Tuna (sushi-grade, of
course) served over an
uniquely delicious pickled
slaw and offered with a
creamy wasabi "dipping
sauce."
One of the revelations of
the evening was the mush-
room ravioli served over
boneless beef ribs. I've wait-
ed a long time to write that
I had experienced "melt-
in-your-mouth-beef." This
is it, and it is the real deal!
The ravioli was wonder-
fully tasty, and under it is a
serving of perfectly cooked
and seasoned boneless beef
that is so good and so
truly "melt-in-your-mouth"
- that it deserves to win
awards.
And then there are the
steaks! Proclaiming on the
menu that their steaks are
"the best beef money can
buy," The Shula Cut steaks
are all custom-center cut,
each with its own "wet-
aging" process, and yes,
they have won awards. I
consider the filet to be the
true test of any steak res-
taurant, and I was more
than pleased to have my
filet served to me exactly
as ordered along with an
intriguing special touch.


As the filet was served, our
knowledgeable and charm-
ing wait-person, Heather,
asked me to cut into the
center. She then shined a
little light into the steak to
be sure that it was served as
ordered. When steaks are
this important, the special
touches are appreciated.
The desserts are wonder-
ful. I particularly suggest
the 'flourless chocolate
cake.' There is a full bar -
offering specialty martinis
and a wine list for all tastes.
Along with the tastefully
decorated dining room,
there are two private din-
ing rooms and a patio for
outdoor dining. The new
Shula's 347 Grill is located
directly across from Colo-
nial Town Park shopping
center at 2974 Internation-
al Parkway in Lake Mary at
the Westin Hotel Orlando
North. The restaurant is
open for breakfast, lunch,
and dinner seven days a
week. Visit www.donshula.
com or call 407-531-3567
for reservations.

The Winter Park Chamber of Commerce is not going to let anything dampen
the Holiday Spirit in Winter Park!
Although the Christmas Parade was cancelled due to poor weather, we realize
the need to pull the community together during this holiday season. Therefore,
in lieu of the parade, we will be having a great holiday event for the
community on Saturday morning December 19th, at the Chamber of
Commerce. We will be continuing the great tradition of the Leadership
Winter Park Pancake breakfast, which raises money for local elementary
schools and will also have a special visit from Santa, entertainment from
several youth choirs, the Marines will be here collecting toys and some other
great surprises. You can visit www.winterpark.org for more details.
I want to thank and recognize all the parade participants, sponsors and the
Christmas Parade Committee for their patience, understanding and support.
The organizations and individuals listed are important assets to our
community. They love the parade and they love Winter Park!
I want to also thank the Cty ofWinter Park for all their help and support.
Also, I especially want to thank Bright House Networks, FerrellWealth
Management, and Fannie Hillman +Associates. Simply put, their sponsorship
and support is making this great event on Saturday a reality. Diane Pickett
Culpepper, im Ferrell and Scott Hillman care deeply about our community,
and insisted on doing something special for the holidays. I appreciate them
immensely.
I hope you all have a blessed holiday season and I hope to see you Saturday
morning!
Sincerely,
Patrick Chapin
President, Winter Park Chamber of Commerce
