Employees at a Winter Park store head to Haiti on May 21


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
When Emily Tallman's
flight landed at night in
Port-au-Prince, Haiti, she
could feel the devastation.
"It sinks in, even in the
dark you can sense it," said
Tallman, an employee at
Peterbrooke Chocolatier
in Winter Park.
She was struck by it the
moment she got off the
plane even the capital
city's airport had cracks in
the walls. The airport was
packed with soldiers from
all over.
"It felt like the whole
world was there," she said.


Tallman spent five days
in Haiti in February helping
people affected by the Jan.
12 earthquake. She went as
a part of ACTS World Relief
with some members from
her church, Northland.
Tallman will be returning
on May 21 for 10 days.
In the light of day, things
looked much worse. Her
group drove around the
city to get a sense of what
they were there for. Build-
ings were reduced to piles
of grey rubble, those with
an intact frame had noth-
ing inside. Signs were hung
outside that said in English,
"SOS we need help."
"It just seems like such


a big, complex problem -
it's kind of overwhelming,"
she said.
Tallman's group stayed
in tents with other teams
from ACTS with intermit-
tent running water. Her job
during the trip was to give
emotional and spiritual
support to the people, and
to assist doctors and nurses
with medical care.
All of the major inju-
ries had already been tak-
en care of by the time she
went, so the team mostly
treated ailments such as
worms, scabies, the flu and
a lot of high blood pressure

May 24 big

day for rail
ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF

The future of the SunRail
system's role in Winter Park
could be decided at a meet-
ing Monday, called to de-
bate changes to an agree-
ment with Orange County
concerning funding for the
commuter rail system.
The city could possibly
drop out of the system and
cancel construction of a
commuter rail stop if it can't
convince the county to find
other funding sources rath-
er than forcing cities to pay
for it.
Winter Park would pay
about $350,000 yearly to
keep its portion of the sys-
tem running after federal
funding for the system ends.
The city is in an unusual
position along the SunRail
line, being in the only coun-
ty that's making individual
cities pay their share of
costs for the system, rather
than Orange County paying
outright.
Despite misgivings about
the economics involved in
the rail deal, no one on the
five-member Commission
has called to back out of the
SunRail system.
Standing atop the rail-
road tracks at a National
Train Day celebration on
May 7 near Central Park,
Mayor Ken Bradley ex-
pressed support for the sys-

The Maitland Art Associa-

The boards unanimous-

UCF in the NCAA tournament

Softball wins an outside bid into the postseason while baseball struggles to turn their season around


ISAAC BABCOCK
OBSERVER STAFF
The UCF softball team is
NCAA tournament-bound
after finishing the season as
Conference USA's runner-
up.
The Knights trounced
UTEP and Memphis in the
early rounds of the C-USA
tournament to make it to
the championship game
against East Carolina.
Heroes had emerged in
both of the first two games.
Abby McClain slammed a
3-run homer in the opening
round of the tournament to
lift her team over the Miners
4-2. Then in the next game
Hillary Barrow ended the
game with a bang, hammer-
ing a 2-run double to put her
Knights over the top against
Memphis.
But against East Caro-
lina there were no heroics


at the plate. Pirates pitcher
Toni Paisley threw a com-
plete game 3-hitter to end
the Knights' chances of a
championship. The Knights
would fall 3-1 in that game.
Now the Knights (35-
21) face off against Florida
International in the first
round. They hadn't played
the Panthers (36-19) this
season. That game starts at
3:30 p.m. Friday in Gaines-
ville.

UCF baseball
After losing two straight
games to East Carolina, the
Knights decimated the Pi-
rates in a 14-1 rout Sunday.
In the process, UCF slug-
ger Chris Duffy hammered
his 18th homerun of the
year, tying the school's sin-
gle-season homerun record.
The power-hitting Knights
knocked three over the wall
to set a team record with 70


home runs in a single sea-
son.
The massive turnaround
for the Knights (31-21,8-13)
marked the first time since
2008 that they had caused
officials to invoke the run
rule and end the game early
due to the 14-1 scoring dis-
parity.
After a quick home game
against Florida Atlantic at
press time, the Knights head
to New Orleans this week-
end at Tulane starting at 7
p.m. Friday.

Rollins
After a string of wins in the
NCAA Division II tourna-
ment, the Tars fell 7-1 to
Southern Arkansas. The
Muleriders ended the Tars'
tournament run after a 41-
19 season, which tied them
for the second most wins in
team history.

Chasing victory near the end of the season, the Knights found a way to beat East
Carolina in the final game of their series after losing the first two.

campus and possibly a new
museum building.
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.


Now the work begins -
putting together one bud-
get, one staff and one board.
They will present their bud-
get at a Maitland City Coun-
cil workshop on July 12.
"The budget will be sort
of the same if the two orga-
nizations were combined,"
Chairman Victor Diaz said.
Both the Art Associa-
tion and Historical Soci-
ety receive the majority of
their funding from the city,
$309,000 and $182,000 re-

spectively that's after a
5 percent cut last year re-
quested by the city.
The city could ask the
new organization to make
cuts to its combined bud-
get or it could remain at
the current level of funding
with a promise that more
grant dollars will start to
flow down in the future,
Maitland Mayor Doug Kin-
son said.
"With a larger organi-
zation, there will be more


grant dollars and funding
opportunities than we may
realize today," Kinson said.
Cox agreed.
"Certainly, the goal long-
term is to reduce the city's
contribution in respect to
the overall budget," she said.
"There will be one-time
merger costs like new logos
so we don't expect to see
cost savings in the first few
months. But we see a lot of
long-term cost efficiencies."

A task force is working to
come up with an operations
and maintenance plan that
retains the current talent
and expertise levels, but
also eliminates any redun-
dancies.
"The next step is for the
two groups to roll up their
sleeves and sit down and
determine where those effi-
ciencies lie," Kinson said.
The new organization
will save costs by cutting
down on marketing cost
and operations. It has about
18 employees, many of
whom are part time, Cox
said. To save money, the
consolidated organization
will only have one executive
director.
The board hasn't decided
if they'll undergo a national
search or a local one for the
new organization's leader,
Diaz said.
Pre-merge, the organiza-
tions' leases for the museum
properties owned by the
city were extended through
October. The leases will be
condensed to one after that
expires.
Cox wants to remind
members and residents that
the merger talk didn't start
because the organizations
wanted to save money.
"It was something to do
that would make the mis-
sion of both organizations
stronger, to better serve the
community," she said.

and post-traumatic stress.
The first clinic she worked
in, the team saw 900 people.
One woman had a newborn
baby and waited hours just
to have someone tell her
that the baby was OK.
"The baby was perfectly
healthy," she said.
That's not always the
case. The stories people
shared with her were tough
to hear.
"I didn't meet one person
who hadn't lost somebody."
But there were times of


humor and happiness. One
day there were plenty of vol-
unteers, so Tallman's job was
to play with the children.
She didn't have toys, but did
have a small notebook full
of paper. She and another
volunteer spent hours rip-
ping up the paper into strips
to make little airplanes and
boats for the kids.
"They literally just grab
onto you they just want
to hold your hand," she said.
"All day I kept hearing Emily,
Emily, Emily."
And it's the happy and
sad moments that bring
Tallman back. Though she


has four kids and a husband
at home, the family knows
that sacrificing mom for a
week is important.
"Emily has a genuine
care and a genuine heart for
people who are suffering,"
Brent Tallman, Emily's hus-
band said.
Jami and Kevin Wray,
her weekend employers at
Peterbrooke Chocolatier,
agreed with Brent.
"Emily is the most self-
less person I have ever met,"
Kevin said.
Brent also goes on mis-
sions, and the two "tag


team" going away. He will
travel to Egypt in July.
Though her husband will
be at home with the kids,
Emily won't be on her trip
without friends. The Wrays
will be going too.
"I'm nervous because I'm
afraid I'm not going to be
able to help enough," Jami
said.
That's something that
Tallman struggled with
when she got home, but
knows that her small con-
tribution did make a dif-
ference. That's why she de-
cided to go back the minute


she got home.
"Meeting the people and
knowing the people makes
me want to go back," she
said. "They're the most re-
silient people I've ever met
in my entire life ... they're so
strong."



Emily's trip costs $600; to

RAIL I City attorney said the rail agreement leaves the city vulnerable


< continued from the front page

tem.
"I'm looking forward to
having SunRail in Winter
Park," he said.
In April, Bradley had
called for the Commis-
sion to vote specifically on
whether it wants a SunRail
station at all.
City Attorney Larry
Brown in March analyzed


the city's agreement with
the county, which was made
early on in the debate over
funding the SunRail system,
and determined that the
city could be trapped into
a contract for 99 years with
the county.
Some key words in the
agreement may have prov-
en tricky down the line, he
later told the Commission.
Ten pages of analysis de-


termined that ifthecitywere
to enter into the contract as
written, it could be stuck
helping to fund the com-
muter rail system against its
will even if the Florida De-
partment of Transportation
didn't procure a full funding
source.
"In my opinion, this lan-
guage provides that a dedi-
cated funding source need
not cover 100 percent of the


operating costs or bond debt
service cost," Brown wrote
in his recommendations
to the Commission. "Nor
must the dedicated funding
source exist throughout the
99 year term of the Agree-
ment."
He also said that the
agreement could leave the
city open to a larger hit for
accident liability than may
have been apparent.


Brown concluded that
the city had the right to ter-
minate or modify the agree-
ment with the county. In
recent weeks, some com-
missioners have restarted a
push for just that.
"We need to take a seri-
ous look at this agreement,"
Commissioner Beth Dillaha
said. "Ifwe don't change this,
we could be on the hook for
a long time."

Winter Park / Maitland Observer







Page 6 Thursday, May 20, 2010 Winter Park / Maitlanci Observer


Maitland's commitment
to our taxpayers is evident
in our support of keeping
our millage rate one of the
lowest in Florida and not
increasing taxes that would
further burden our families
in tough economic times.
Further, our overall taxes
have declined over the
past two years, which has
resulted in a tax decrease to
our residents.

Revenues
That's the good news. The
challenge is that decreased
assessments puts pressure
on our City's ability to be
able to provide a balanced
budget year after year.
Combined with a number
of other factors, this year
represents the 'perfect
storm' in relation to
balanced budgeting.
The impacts of


Amendment 1 where
residents are able to
'port' their tax breaks
and are able to receive
an additional $25,000
exemption has put further
pressure on Maitland's
ability to balance our
budget.
As a result of these
impacts, along with the 10
percent annual cap on non-
homestead or commercial
properties, which make
up nearly 70 percent of
ad valorem taxes in our
City, Maitland expects an
8 percent decline in ad
valorem revenues in 2011.
In addition, State Shared
Revenues, which include
sales tax, communication
service tax and state
revenue sharing, are all
expected to either decline
or remain flat during
fiscal year 2011, with the


communication service tax
declining to 2002 levels.
Interest Income has
taken a hit for the past
several years and is
expected to continue to
decline in the foreseeable
future. City revenues with
respect to investments
represent about a 40
percent average decline in
the past three years.
An interesting decline
in revenue comes through
reductions in Court Fine
Revenues. Although the
City has some control over
citations issued, actual
sentencing is out of our
hands. fiscal year 2010
revenues are expected to
come in at just under 40
percent of fiscal year 2009
actual receipts, with no
gain projected in fiscal year
2011.

Expenditures
I would hope that our
saving grace would be a
corresponding decline in
government expenditures,
but just as we deal with
declining revenues, there
is upward pressure with
expenses in many areas. Get
ready, sky-rocketing health
insurance costs are nearly
a certainty. Maitland will
experience a 10 percent


increase in costs associated
with health insurance to
City employees.
Poor market conditions
associated with a downturn
in the economy have
temporarily had a negative
impact on pension
obligations; however, based
on recent improvements
in investments, this is
primarily a short term
situation and only impacts
a percentage of the City's
current workforce.
As we face the realities
of decreasing revenues
and increasing expenses,
the City has little ability to
hire new employees, and in
fact, when employees leave,
the City has chosen not
to replace them. Maitland
currently has 14 of 215
positions currently frozen
and unfunded, which puts
our City's current staffing at
fiscal year 2006 levels.
Over the years, every City
of Maitland department
has been directed to reduce
their operating budget
in order to achieve more
efficient operations. Travel
and training has been
either reduced, brought on
site, or eliminated entirely.
Office supplies, uniforms,
printing, dues, publications
and other similar expense
line items have been


reduced or eliminated.

Our future
There is no question our
City will be able to leverage
our revenues in much the
same way we did with
Minnehaha Park and our
acquisition of a new radio
system. But, although this is
a good short-term solution,
what happens when the
one-time grant money pots
dry up? How will our City
be able to respond?
Project and program
prioritization will be
crucial as the City must
position itself to do less
with less. Our fiscal year
2011 strategic plan will be
framed around the concept
of sustainability to meet
the needs of the present
without compromising
future generations' abilities
to meet their own needs.
I have every confidence
through the diligence of
our great staff, working in
unison with an involved
City Council and with
residents throughout our
community, that we will
not only balance our fiscal
year 2011 budget, but will
be better positioned to deal
with anything that might
be thrown at us in the
future.

GREEN GARDENING RE-
TURNS TO WINTER PARK
Time to restore our winter-
weary gardens! The Winter
Park Neighborhood
Council is again hosting
"Green Gardening in
Winter Park." The exciting
2010 series includes classes
with noted landscape
designers and authors
Stephen and Kristen
Pategas, owners of Hortus
Oasis, and gardening
specialists Jennifer Ramos
and Ed Thralls from
the UF/IFAS Extension
Services. The Winter Park
Environmental Review
Board is partnering with
the Neighborhood Council
to invite Winter Park
neighborhoods to take the
information they learn and
to compete in the Florida-
Friendly Yard Contest.
The Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods program
recognizes homeowners
who use environmentally-
friendly gardening and
landscaping practices.
Certified Florida-Friendly
Yards minimize the use
of potable water for
irrigation, avoid the runoff
of excess fertilizers and
pesticides from the yard,
and provide habitats for
wildlife. Florida-Friendly
Yards can take any form,
from conventional and
manicured to more natural.


It's how you maintain
your yard that ultimately
determines if it's Florida-
Friendly.

Tatame has more sake choices than any sushi bar could dream of and a cool, artsy atmosphere


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER

Many Winter Parkers don't
know it, but they've got
their very own sake lounge.
The owners didn't even
know Tatame Sake Lounge
existed. Couple Jeff Jaclin
and Jessica Sterner stum-
bled upon it while looking
for a new business opportu-
nity.
"We were looking for


something we could do and
might have fun doing," Ja-
clin said. "It just happened."
Jaclin, always his own
boss, was looking for some-
thing different when the
recession hit his other busi-
nesses. Neither had ever
worked in the hospitality
industry, let alone owned a
bar or restaurant, but when
Sterner walked in six-year-
old-Tatame about nine
months ago "something hit

her." Jaclin went with his
fiance's gut and took the
plunge.
Surprisingly hidden de-
spite its bright green exte-
rior paint, the lounge was
quite a deep plunge for the
two, who decided to take on
a business already in trou-
ble.
"You're taking a business
that in effect was actually
losing money when we took
it over," Jaclin said.
Over the past nine
months, the couple said
they've started making a
slight profit. They're tack-
ling the lack of visibil-
ity with new signage and
a sometimes lack of cus-
tomers with a product not
found anywhere else in the
area. The lounge offers 21
different cold sakes, which
Sterner infuses with fruit
flavors herself, along with a
variety of more traditional
hot sakes and an appetizer
menu for recession-bud-
get wallets. Food offerings
range in price from $3 to $7
and a generous pour of sake
for around $7.
"It's hard to get people to
come out they don't have
the disposable income they
had two years ago," Jaclin


said.
A similar local bar, the
Peacock Room, has shared
the same type of hardships.
Their business is down
20 percent from last year,
mostly because people just
don't have the cash to go
out drinking three nights a
week like they might have
before the recession, man-
ager Tania Bernard said.
According to the two
lounges and businesses
close by, including Tatame's
neighbor, All Fired Up, a
paint it yourself pottery
place, the key is Internet
marketing.
Facebook is one of the
best ways to attract business.
Jaclin and Sterner send Fa-
cebook "friends" invitations
to all the events they host at
Tatame, which is what they
think is the best way to draw
in customers.
The couple has some-
thing to offer a person of any
interest. There's jazz night,
Latin night, acoustic sing-
ers and all-out rock bands.
Sterner's favorite is their Dr.
Sketchy event, a live sketch-
ing session they do once a
month. Exotic models be
they drag queens, superhe-
roes, or retro housewives

- model for dozens of local
artists at the bar.
"The goal is to support
the local art and music com-
munity," Sterner said.
"It's what we do here,
it's what we stand for," said
Aubrey Walker, manager of
Tatame.
Not only do local artists
get to show their stuff, but
the owners do too. Sterner
loves to flex her creative
muscle while inventing and
shaking new "saketinis" for
customers.
That fun, but intimate at-
mosphere, is what sets their
place apart from others, the
owners said.
Customers agree.
"I love that place," Ber-
nard said. "I would consid-
er them very swanky and
upper-crust, but not hoity-
toity like other Park Avenue
places."
And while the purchase
might have been a spur of
the moment thing for the
couple, they have discov-
ered a passion for the place
that won't let them give up
on it. At least one of them
keeps a positive attitude at
all times, Sterner laughed.
And when energy is in
short supply they work
from when their three chil-
dren go to school in the
morning until 2 a.m. most
days they dream of the fu-
ture when they'll have mul-
tiple Tatames. Until then,
they're enjoying the atmo-
sphere along with their cus-
tomers.
"When she peeks out of
the kitchen and sees every-
one having a good time, she
gets excited," Jaclin said of
his fiance.

Learn to swim programs
are abundant in Winter
Park and Maitland areas


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER


With the temperature getting hotter,
what better way to spend the day than
at the pool in the summer?
For those children who haven't yet
learned the safety and proper swim
techniques, here are a few swim les-
son programs that will have children
splashing around, swimming like fish-
es and cooling off from the summer
heat in no time.

Swim Squad
Offering an at-home swim program
for children as young as 6 months,
the Swim Squad provides lessons feet
away from a homeowner's backdoor
in order to provide a safe and famil-
iar environment for children to learn
in, whether it be a community pool or
their very own.
Swim Squad serves all of Central
Florida by teaching children how to
navigate the swimming pool safely
while learning survival techniques
and proper form that will give them
the confidence to be good swimmers,
said Jordan Meher, aquatics director
of Swim Squad.
"We are proudly different from all
other swim programs in the country
because we strictly provide swimming
lessons one-on-one or in small groups
at a parent's home or community pool,
while parents are able to choose the
schedule of their lessons," he said. "We
are able to customize our lesson plans
to teach the children to be safe in the
pools they are most exposed to."
Visit www.theswimsquad.com or
call 407-415-7577 for more informa-
tion.

YMCA
As the song says, "It's fun to stay at the
Y-M-C-A" for swim lessons. Offering
parent and child lessons, youth les-
sons and a pre-school program with
fun aquatic-themed levels, the YMCA
offers pool safety and lessons for the
whole family with locations all over
Central Florida. Andrew Aguirre,
aquatics coordinator at the Oviedo
YMCA Family Center, said children
not only get swim lessons that can be
life-saving, they also get to experience
safety activities outside of the pool
such as lifeguard techniques.

"Our aquatics program furthers our
five YMCA values: faith, caring, hones-
ty, respect and responsibility," he said.
Aguirre said the pre-school (for
children 3 to 5) and youth (6 to 12)
programs teaches children techniques
such as floating on their backs, proper
arms movements, breathing patterns,
diving and treadingwater as theyprog-
ress through each program. For more
information on the aquatics program
at your local YMCA, visit www. Cen-
tralfloridaymca.org. Pool programs
times, availability and schedule vary
from location to location. Call 407-
359-3606 for more information.

Sharks and Minnows
The Sharks and Minnows swim les-
son program has been around since
1990 and has around 25 Central Flor-
ida locations ranging from Oviedo to
Avalon Park, where lessons are taught
by certified swim instructors who
went through the Sharks and Min-
nows school.
Offering group classes (three to five
students), private and semi-private
(maximum of two students), Sharks
and Minnows provides a lot of individ-
ual attention to swimming students
by giving them a positive and safe
environment to learn in, said Andy
Heinrich, owner/programs director
of Sharks and Minnows. Children as
young as 6 months can start the pro-
gram as minnows and swim their way
to shark status.
"Our goal is when they finish the
program, that they feel they had a fun,
positive experience," Heinrich said.
The program is open to all ages and
has several indoor locations, so it's


offered year round, he said. For a full
list of locations and schedule of when
classes are taking place, visit www.
sharksandminnows.com or call 407-
699-1992 for more information about
the Sharks and Minnows program in
Central Florida.

Infant Swimming Resource
Infant Swimming Resource, located
at 2572 W State Road 426 in Oviedo,
is a program that provides children
aged 6-12 months and 1-6 years of age
the skills necessary to survive in the
water and practice basic swimming
skills. Customized and taught one-on-
one by a certified ISR instructors, the
program emphasizes safety and gives
children the competence, confidence
and skills of aquatic safety by teaching
self-rescue techniques, which could
mean life or death, according to the
ISR Web site. For more information on
the courses taught in the program, as
well as the schedule and location of
lessons, visit www.infantswim.com.

Jewish Community Center
The Jewish Community Center of
Greater Orlando, located at 851 N.
Maitland Ave., is offering several swim
programs over the course of the sum-
mer. Visit www.orlandojcc.org/ and

Incredible shrinking white boy


"Hon, how come you're such a
pudgy slob of a numb Chuck?" asks
the clearly exasperated wife.
"Oh, now Dear, I can't seem to
help it. I really don't have much
for brains, my receding hairline
matches my disappearing scrotum
and my witless behavior mirrors
my lackadaisical ambition. I'm just
your average American white boy
you see on TV, don't-cha know."
It is said that who is ridiculed is
often a cultural clue as to who ac-
tually wields the real power. In to-
day's daze of political correctness,
every segment of the American
populace is virtually off limits for
ridicule and evisceration except
for America's favorite punching
bag white boys. I get that, I do.
I've poked fun at big dumb
white boys myself. As a lifelong,
card-carrying white boy, I can un-
abashedly wield the ax of humor
and scorn at rabid rednecks who
have historically felt threatened
by women, minorities and gays.
Frightened, frightening white
boys. How else do you deal with
such ignorance and ilk. Besides
hope that they are all eventually
vascetomized. With ridicule and
scorn. It's easy. It's fun. It's appro-
priate.
Yet. For the 28 years that I had
children in my home, I did not
own a TV. Why, you might ask?
Answer: Would you want an open
sewer line running through your
living room? Oh, was it because
of the violence and sex that is so
prevalent on television? No, that
wasn't the issue. Three reasons
primarily. 1. TV is about repeti-
tion. You see the same constant
assortment of characters and is-
sues repeatedly presented day after
day, week after week. 2. TV offers
simplistic answers (ads & pro-
gramming) to serious problems,
with unimaginative stereotypes
filling in for humanity. In 22 min-
utes, complex issues are presented,


reduced and resolutely resolved.
It's fairy tales and illusions. 3. Time
spent in front of the tube means
time not spent reading or doing
other endeavors (that I value). And
as a parent, that is my prerogative.
What set me off on how white
boys are being portrayed is a re-
cent DiGiorno pizza advertise-
ment on TV.
Scene: Four "soft" men consist-
ing of two pudgy black sidekicks
and two pudgy, balding smudges
passing for white boys are sitting
in the living room eating pizza.
They are shoveling in the food
faster than you can say "DiGior-
no!" The camera pulls back and
there are huge muddy footprints
everywhere in a room covered in
beige carpeting. Obviously, these
men had just walked in, sat down
and started eating pizza.
The buzz-kill of a wife enters
and in essence asks, "Hon, how
could you be so damned stupid
and inconsiderate? We just had the
carpets cleaned!"
The pudgy, balding white hubby
says, "Dear, it was the pizza deliv-
ery man who did it!" Snort. Gobble,
gobble. Snort. Hah! Hah! Are you
laughing yet? They give her a bite
of the pizza and it simply couldn't
be store bought because it's soooo
delicious!
The wife exclaims, "Mmm-
mmm good," and seemingly for-
gets that her husband is a childish,
lying, inconsiderate moron.
Oh, you mean that pudgy
smudge of a white boy husband
passing as a man?
Yea, he's on TV all the time.

Home, sweet loot


Your home is where you and
what's-her-name enjoy the life you
work for, and maybe have fought
for. Your dwelling may be safe
from weather and harm, but un-
seen villains may be scheming to
rob you of the real estate that com-
prises your own little "castle."
If you make a deal to sell home
and hearth, you have no gripe. But,
if someone whose offer you turn
down decides to take your prop-
erty through eminent domain,
look out!
Eminent domain seems to sanc-
tion anything from simple pur-
chases to apparent highway rob-
bery. A helpful gimmick to "takers"
is to show politicians that tax in-
come from your property after its
sale will far exceed what you have
been paying in tax revenue.
Fair? No!
But it didn't take JFK's truism to
educate us that "life is not fair."
Carol Saviak is a special hero-
ine of mine. She's a lady on the
look-out. She heads up the 9-year-
old Coalition for Property Rights
(CPR), whose raison-d'etre, among
other things, is to keep others
from unfairly making off with
your rightful stuff.
Carol is not on the side of any
personalities involved she's on
the side of law and order. With her
around, you are more likely to get
a fair shake in any property dis-
putes.
A Florida state constitutional
amendment (in 2006), jollied
along by Carol and constituents,
puts Florida among the top states
in strengthening eminent domain.
People here in Florida can sleep
better thanks to Carol and her co-
horts. CPR offers property owners
advice, stature and (increasing)
clout in protecting real estate from
lawless encroachment.
As a 501(c)(3) educational or-
ganization, CPR has no salaried
attorneys on its staff, but stands
ready to provide referrals from a


list of competent legal counselors.
Carol tells us that politicians
who openly ally themselves with
the aims of CPR report favorable
polling response from constitu-
ents. When Carol Saviak is argu-
ing her points before the Florida
Legislature, her opposition usually
comes from the Florida League of
Cities and/or the Florida Associa-
tion of Counties both of which
are paid for by your tax dollars!
Carol says that any transaction
where government hankers to
acquire property always deserves
close scrutiny. She believes that
the very fact that CPR is "on the
scene" alerts those planning to
take property to mind their Ps and
Qs.
Saviak's business day may con-
tain a variety of different events
ranging from phone calls from
Florida property owners to an-
swering calls from all around the
country, giving public speeches
where she answers open ques-
tions, voluminous e-mail corre-
spondence, and "just the logistics
of running a non-profit organiza-
tion."
Carol also writes a free weekly
e-mail newsletter discussing all
types of property-rights issues.
Florida state legislators receive her
letters weekly.
"In defense of property own-
ers," she says, "we try to posture
ourselves aggressively."
CPR speaks bluntly to legisla-
tors and others concerned with
individuals' property rights.
"We let people know that CPR
is watching and ready to step in
and help, when their rights are be-
ing abused."

Speak up to fix rail agreement
I take the job of being an elected
representative of the residents of
Winter Park very seriously. When I
campaigned for city commissioner,
I promised to protect and preserve
the public interest above special
interests, to make decisions that
would benefit our entire communi-
ty and to make fiscally responsible
decisions on behalf of the taxpay-
ers.
I have voiced opposition to the
commuter rail project over the
years due to the exorbitant costs,
lack of local and federal funding,


low ridership projections, old die-
sel technology and the commuter
route that meanders through our
neighborhoods. Nevertheless, the
task at hand is to ensure the agree-
ment between Winter Park and Or-
ange County provides crystal clear
options for our city and eliminates
vague and open-ended terms and
unknown financial implications.
There are good reasons this
99-year agreement is being ques-
tioned. Many things have changed
since 2007 in terms of the econo-
my, the project costs and details,
and stipulations of the agreement.
The terms run counter to the state


constitution that sets out to pro-
tect taxpayers from the spendthrift
tendencies of public officials who
would load future commissions
with obligations to pay for things
the present desires but cannot just-
ly pay for as they go. It is also un-
lawful to bind the hands of future
commissioners.
Our right to "opt out" is criti-
cal as no one has a crystal ball to
foresee what impact 56 daily diesel
commuter trains and unlimited
evening freight will have on down-
town Winter Park, Central Park and
our neighborhoods. No one can
predict potential adverse impacts


such as traffic congestion, lack of
funding, poor ridership, increase in
crime or a decline of neighborhood
property values. Should we take
such risks with a bad agreement?
Additionally, the annual operat-
ing deficits that you are expected
to pay have already increased by
38 percent to $500,000 per year
(even before one train has run!)
and there is no annual limit on
these costs. Orange County should
be picking up these costs to oper-
ate and maintain the system, as are
all other counties on the proposed
rail corridor. Why should we pay

Our Observation


Abortion track record mixed


An amendment to abortion legis-
lation on Gov. Charlie Crist's desk
could mean much more for the
future of the Florida's politics than
just a turning point on a conten-
tious issue. On a quest to curtail
abortions, Republicans have slow-
ly lost their moderate legislators.
After two controversial votes,
the Florida Legislature passed
an amendment on April 30 that
would require seekers of first-term
abortions to view an ultrasound
of their fetus unless in the case of
rape or domestic violence. Victims
of those crimes would have to le-
gally prove that they'd been raped
or assaulted in order to condition-
ally opt out of the $200-$1,000 ul-
trasound.
Ironically, it was predominately
liberal Democrats who viewed it
as an expansion of governmental
intrusion into privacy. Socially
conservative Republicans looked
the other way while they cast their
votes in favor of it.
For those feeling a tinge of deja
vu, the amendment is nearly iden-
tical to one that died in the State
Senate in 2008. But that bill wasn't
killed by Democrats. It was killed
by seven Republicans, who split
from the majority of their party.
Last year, one of the 2008 bill's
strongest Republican opponents,
Sen. Jim King, died of pancreatic
cancer a year after he successfully
argued that the bill disagreed with
core Republican values.
He had joined the party because
he believed in "less government,
more freedom," King said during
the debate. "But folks, this is not
less government. This is more gov-
ernment. It's government intru-
sion."
King recoiled against the idea
that in a country formed with a


separation of politics and religion,
his party would become increas-
ingly dominated by the politics of
religion at the expense of one of
the party's most historically sacro-
sanct principles.
Despite being lauded by his
peers on the Senate floor, King's
brand of politics was quietly
pushed out the door. In King's
wake, the departure of more mod-
erates has left a quiet void in the
largely Republican State Legisla-
ture. King's seat was later filled by
Sen. John Thrasher, largely regard-
ed as a more conservative Republi-
can. In the meantime, the voices of
the middle who represent a rap-
idly growing portion of the voting
public have grown nearly silent.
As the few remaining Republi-
can moderates watched on April
30, a bill that King two years ear-
lier had openly apologized for on
the Senate floor passed by a wide
margin.
In his place, a new group of Re-
publicans had voted nearly along
party lines.
Now Crist has found himself
at odds with a growing segment
of the Republican party as he's
chosen to run as an independent
against Republican Marco Rubio,
the party's favorite, for a U.S. Sen-
ate seat.
In a precarious position, he's
hoping his message resonates for
traditionally moderate indepen-
dent voters from both sides of the
spectrum, while alienating as few
Republican supporters as possible.
And in the meantime, he has
to make a tough decision on the
verge of an election. Cast as an
independent by necessity, Crist's
political career could hinge on
how he defines Republicanism: by
politics, or by religion.

and pay twice? You and I already
pay nearly a third of our taxes to
Orange County yearly.
Question those people who
are berating my fellow commis-
sioners and me for the audacity to
look out for you, the taxpayers, by
renegotiating this unilateral agree-
ment with Orange County now.
Ask yourself what motivates them

Protect the city from liability
Anyone feeling uneasy about the


coming SunRail commuter service
might be interested in the Winter
Park city attorney's recent 10-page
legal opinion letter on his con-
cerns regarding numerous issues
in our agreement with Orange
County.
It's heavy going, but the let-
ter's on the City Web site under
Government/City Info/City News/
Commuter Rail Information. If
you can't get through it, the fol-
lowing is a recap of sorts, and you
can attend the May 24 Winter Park
City Commission meeting, where
there will be a discussion on the
language changes suggested by the
city attorney in an effort to correct
the current flaws.
To begin with, the city attorney
worries that previous mistakes
and oversights could leave the city
open to successful legal challenges,
since, in his opinion, aspects of the
contract appear to be unconstitu-
tional.
Furthermore, he suggests that:
(a) language regarding funding
sources for Winter Park's contrac-
tual fees to the system may present
an open-ended, uncapped, long-
term hardship for the city; (b) the
city's opt-out clause is vague and
extremely limited; and (c) the city
has no voice in management or
funding decisions, unlike Orlando
and the other funding partners.

Gardeners will save the world


With all the talk of the problems
associated with global warming
and greenhouse gases, gardeners
are rarely mentioned as part of the
solution. Gardening as a crucial
link between mankind and the
earth provides many important
opportunities to solve these mod-
ern dilemmas. Not only by reduc-
ing the output of troubling gases,
but by reducing the quantities of
greenhouse gases that already ex-
ist, gardeners help save the world
as we know it.
Compost is the foundation to
soil improvement for all of our gar-
dening efforts. What is this crum-
bly, black soil so highly valued? The
short answer would be carbon, in a
stable but interactive form, created
from the decomposition of exist-
ing plant materials. Plant debris
exposed to sunlight and air will
oxidize essentially burn back
into gaseous carbon dioxide. This
is why Florida's dirt doesn't ac-
cumulate black topsoil like other
regions of the Earth. Through the
efforts of bacteria in a cow's stom-
ach, fungus hiding on the forest
floor or a slimy earthworm in our
compost pile, carbon is stabilized
in a form of humic acid (humus).
Mix together billions of micro-
organisms, trace elements in min-
eral form, plant fibers and sand
and you have compost. Why all
these accolades to the gardener?
By creating and using compost,
its carbon component will be se-
questered into the ground to be
held in place for many years or
centuries. Carbon sequestering on
the scope and scale of America's
farmland would be a huge step to-
ward lowering greenhouse gases in
the atmosphere. At the same time,
composting improves the quanti-
ties and qualities of our produce
in healthful ways, benefiting all of

Winter Park taxpayers are justi-
fied in asking whether and how
these substantive, far-reaching con-
cerns are being addressed.
Just one example of a problem
is the structure for the payment of
operations and maintenance costs
to the county. Winter Park pays 100
percent of an assessed fee, although
it actually owes only 70 percent.
The city may then request a refund
in writing within 30 days, and the
county has 45 days in which to re-
fund the 30 percent interest free,
as I understand it which was not
even owed in the first place.
What sense does it make to give
another party the use of your capi-
tal, interest free, for possibly over
two months? Also, why is Winter
Park being charged individually
for O&M costs? Cities in the other
three counties are not required


mankind!
Compost, for all its intrinsic
values, is relatively easy to create.
The four basic components are:
chopped up plant material, wa-
ter, microbes and the pile. Lawn
trimming season is upon us as
we speak. By backyard compost-
ing, municipal waste services save
motor fuel and tax dollars by not
transporting our landscape debris
to the county landfill. The chopped
surface areas of plants exposed
to the myriads of microbe types
present ample opportunities for
unseen food chains to flourish.
Of course, life requires water, but
not too much, as excess moisture
excludes oxygen, creating a smelly
anaerobic stew. Collected rainwa-
ter is a fitting complement to our
efforts already under way. The pile
assures the critical mass for humus
formation so the carbon is not lost
back to the atmosphere. Our spo-
radic efforts at turning the pile ac-
celerate the process as required.
Summer, Central Florida's gar-
dening off-season, is perfectly
timed for compost production.
Like any recipe, cooking a batch
of compost takes practice. Poke,
prod, sniff and experience the mini
universe baking in the corner of
your garden. When autumn arrives,
the finished product of our pile
will help us on our way to harvest-
ing some wonderful food grown in
our garden and the satisfaction of
knowing we helped save the world
one garden bed at a time!

to pay; those counties cover their
costs.
The citizens of Winter Park,
in 2007, voted that the city may
use city funds and city land for a
commuter rail station. That vote
was not a green light for a flawed,
open-ended agreement, which will
result in double taxation without
representation for Winter Park.
In times like these, as our own city
attorney has pointed out, it is criti-
cal to (a) get a fair deal that makes
"business sense" for the Winter Park
taxpayers, (b) protect the city and
taxpayers from open and unknown
liability, and (c) ensure the city has
absolute authority to make a clean
break and opt out of the system in
the future if necessary.

Park (where it takes place). Twelve
days (May 20 to 31) of theatre, art,
dance, music and madness, Fringe
is Orlando's craziest and most in-
ventive theatre festival with:
Theatre 70 different theater
(using the term loosely) compa-
nies, each in multiple performanc-
es with everything from stand-up
comedy to dance to improve to
intense drama. At this festival, all
shows start on time, and there is no
late entry!
Fine Art Called "Visual Fringe"
and curated by the fabulous Anna
McCambridge, it is a real (and var-
ied) (and free) art exhibit in the
halls of the theater.

Offices located inside the Orlando
Shakespeare Theatre and the Or-
lando Repertory Theatre, where
you may also purchase your Fringe
Button. Box Office hours are week-
ends from 10 a.m. to midnight and
weekdays from 4 p.m. to midnight.
Hats off to Beth Marshall, produc-
ing director of Orlando Fringe, for
making this all happen. Put simply,
she is a miracle. Visit OrlandoF-
ringe.org for a full schedule and so
much more.

One of 70 productions
The biggest question facing the
Fringe audience is which of the
70 shows should we see? I can an-
swer that question for at least one
of the shows it features what
may be Orlando's best director; it
stars Orlando's best actress; and is
written by one of Orlando's best
theatre writers. That show is Peg
O'Keef Fixes the World, starring
the real Peg O'Keef in a hilarious
"time-traveling tour-de-farce" writ-

Frank's frogs
Local artist Frank Beifus, former
scenic painter with Disney's Ani-
mal Kingdom, has a major fascina-
tion with frogs and he's had the
distinction of having his paintings
exhibited at the Columbus and
San Diego Zoos. Now his colorful
paintings are displayed at the Or-
lando Science Center right next to
20 species of the real thing. Beifus
takes what you can't see with the
naked eye and paints magnified
versions of tiny 'Poison Dart Frogs.'
And since you'll have extra time be-
tween Fringe performances at Loch
Haven Park, this is a great time to
view Frank's pieces with a visit to
the Science Center. Frank's paint-
ings will be on display until Sept. 3
- a perfect summer "fun-learning"
experience for the little ones. You
may view Beifus' paintings with
admission to the Science Center's


four floors of exhibits. Call 407-
514-2000 or visit www.osc.org.

Orlando hosts huge travel show
It's an often unspoken fact that,
living in Central Florida, the fate
of our arts community is intrinsi-
cally tied to the fate of the tourism
industry. Nowhere is this more
obvious than in the can't-be-soon-
enough ground breaking for our
much-needed new performing arts
center! (A significant part of the
new center is supposed to be paid
for by tourist tax dollars.) The good
news is that the Orlando/Orange
County Convention & Visitors
Bureau just hosted the U.S. Travel
Association's International Trade
Show at the Orange County Con-
vention Center. With more than
5,000 delegates from 90 countries,
the OCVB estimates that Orlando
should receive sales of $400 million
over the next three years directly
from the show. Hooray and halle-
lujah! The show is the travel indus-
try's largest generator of interna-
tional travel to the United States.
Should you wish to give them a per-
sonal congratss' for a job well done,
send your note to Brian Martin,
communications director, at brian.
