Page 8 The special report that aired on May 22 on WESH Channel 2 (WESH 2), Are Red-Light Of fense Chances Better Before a Judge? is based on an inaccurate premise: that defendants repre sented by lawyers get better treat ment before a judge than those who are not. At least where the city of Maitland is concerned, this biased portrayal of the red-light camera infraction prosecution process is uninformed. WESH 2 was invited to attend various Maitland red-light camera hear ings yet chose to attend only the one that was included in its report. As an example to show that defendants are treated equally, the city sent WESH 2 a transcript from a Feb. 17 evidentiary hear ing in which a Maitland defen dant, represented by counsel, was found guilty of the red-light viola tion. This proceeding and its out come were not reported. WESH 2 would have realized the overall equality of defendant treatment in the courts had they attended more than one set of Maitland hearings. The city believes in prosecut ing each contested red-light cam era case to implement the goals of Program. Those like Greg Fox of WESH 2, who wrote the special report and is skeptical of red-light camera tickets, often conclude the primary motivation behind the program is money. They would do well to ask Melissa Wandall her thoughts on the matter. Her husband, Mark, was just 30 years old when he was killed in an au tomobile accident less than one mile from his Bradenton home. He was the passenger in a car that was broad sided by a driver who ran a red light. He died less than wedding anniversary and just 19 days before the birth of his daugh ter, Madison Grace. Cities such as Maitland do gain limited revenue from the tickets. However, the majority of the revenue, 52 percent, goes to the state. The remaining 48 percent that goes to local government is misleading because the vendor who supplies the red-light cam eras is paid out of those remaining funds. Any funds realized by local governments are minor in comparison to the gains in safety provided by a system that in its short life span has already helped ensure safer roads for us all. Red-light cameras have revealed epidemic levels of redlight violators. In Maitland, there are six red-light cameras. All have been active for less than one year, with one-third active for less than six months. However, prelimi nary data reveals a total of 15,963 camera-captured violations have occurred through April. Prior to the citys adoption of the program, the intersection of Keller Road and State Road 414 (Mait land Boulevard) was one of the most dangerous intersections in Maitland. Since the red-light cam era went online, crashes at this intersection dropped by 40.74 per cent. Furthermore, since Maitland adopted the program, the number of red-light runners has declined monthly from a high of 2,414 ci tations issued in October to 1,273 citations in March a decrease of nearly 50 percent. Improvements to public safety are undeniable. The program works. WESH 2s inaccurate portrayal of red-light camera defendant in justice is just another way of try ing to discredit the program. The station should be more concerned with the safety of our citizens. Lives have been saved. The streets are now much safer for our resi dents and visitors.City Council meeting of Monday, June 11The Maitland City Council met on June 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the City Hall Council Chambers.

Page 10 Lifestyles A walk down the hallways of Brookshire Elementary School in its last few days conjures feelings of sadness and excitement, saying goodbye and welcoming new be ginnings and the not-so-faint smell of paint. Every hallway at the school has become an art class in itself students write their memories, spotlight their friendships and phants and smiling suns. The chil dren spent their last couple days of this school year saying farewell to their old school by painting on all the walls and throwing a gi ant party where they all danced, laughed and even made a photoop visible from the sky by using every single student in the school to spell out BE on June 5. Ive seen tears today we needed this day to say goodbye, Principal Marc Rummler said. Its closure, parent Elizabeth Scivally said. Brookshire Elementary in Win ter Park has been around since 1960, and while the school has tried to keep up with more stu dents and new technologies, this year was its time for a face-lift. Parents have been waiting years for the school to get renovated, Rummler said. Nows our time to be rebuilt, he said. Over the next year, Brookshire will be demolished and recon structed. In the meantime, the students will be attending class at a swing school newly named Brookshire West, located at 1500 Falcon Drive in Winter Park. The plan is for the Brookshire home campus to reopen summer 2013 and classes to resume there in the fall. The rebuild is necessary, Rum mler said. The schools age has contributed to problems, including recurring air quality concerns for students and teachers. Theyre also lacking in technology. Outside hallways have been con verted to inside ones, and white boards have been screwed over blackboards, but it isnt enough. The new school will have more computers, interactive white boards, a built-in audio system to broadcast teachers voices loud and clear and a document camera projection system to use. Teachers love all the new technology, but are even happier that their new school will be free of health wor ries. Just having a clean, healthy teaching environment, teacher Paula Harmonay said. The new school will also provide a safer environment for stu dents. While the current school is basically an open campus, the new building will have one way to get into the school, a locked students will be under one roof, and all the doors can only be unlocked using a card with a special chip in it. One drawback while the stu dents attend the swing school during the year of construction is that most of the students will be riding a bus to school because of its distance, whereas before most lived close enough to walk or ride that the transition will be easy for students and parents, though, by posting photos of their temporary home, hosting events to tour the school and including parents on all construction updates. Orange County School Board member Joie Cadle said its the parents who might have trouble adjusting, not their children. Kids dont care as long as their teachers are there, Cadle said. Our children are pretty re silient. And thats the key what makes the school isnt the build ing. community that make our school what it is, teacher Krista Cook said. Its the people. Thats clear to the students, too. One special little painting by a student spells out Brook shire and describes the school us ing each letter. Brookshire is in my heart, remembering and home to that student. Its been a special part of Winter Park for more than 50 years and generations of families have attended, but its time for a new place to make new memories. Change is hard its hard on anybody, incoming PTA presi dent Amanda Schaefer said. This building has been our home.

Send submissions to jandreasson@ turnstilemediagroup.comEver since she was a little girl, Lynn Dickerson always liked danc ing. But when she went to an aero bics class at age 16, her dancing shoes were a step behind. I couldnt get the steps right and the instructor laughed at me, she said. Theyd say go left and I would go right. By the time I got it, they were already onto something else. That was when she realized that some people are more gifted than others when it comes to dancing. But she claims that as long as youre moving, youre dancing. That was how she came up with the idea to create a place where peo ple could go and not feel pressured to do everything perfectly. Moths swarmed from counter to ceiling at her moms North Carolina home when she arrived for a visit four months ago. I was trying to hit the moths said, This would be hilarious in a dance, she said. clothes hangers to mops, and so forth. Shortly after returning home, she decided to follow her dream of starting her own dance studio using props inspired by her buggy experi ence. She found a place to rent just a couple miles from her house. She always had a vision of what she wanted the place to look like, and from there, it all just came together. Yellow, green and orange walls and a dark chocolate ceiling greet would-be dancers with a kaleido scope of color, giving the studio a New Orleans vibe. With the formerly white walls painted and the props in place, Lynn had no trouble coming up with a name. Dancing with mops and clothes hangers is hilarious, and its not a workout so I didnt want to have it Hilarious Workout, because we dance, she said.

Page 12 Opinions Not everyone has a neighbor with a 14-foot-long arm Gammill sewing machine in her house. I do. Its the sort of unusual sight long, with lights along the top, handles to crank on the side. My neighbor Kim DeJong, the machines owner and user, admits intimidating. I kind of stood and looked at it for about two months, she said. Then she talks of the point in which you must dive in. On Sunday afternoon, as we talked and she laughingly dealt with some of my crazier questions about the machine, she explained how to use it and discussed what she uses it for: making quilts. Kim and her quilts are the sort of story I enjoy most: local resident celebrating local in a unique way. Its also a story of recycling, repurposing, of creativity. Yes, she makes quilts similar to ones youve seen, but her specialty mix is big on nostalgia, takes memories from a drawer or closet and puts them on display. She takes those T-shirts you may never wear again but cant bring yourself to part with and makes them something functional, useful, beautiful. She told me of one recent customer who started to Kim had made for her of her sons T-shirts. About three years ago, as one of Kims daughters, Caitlin, was wanted to take the T-shirts shed acquired during those years and make a single quilt featuring them. Shed seen cookie cutter T-shirt quilts that didnt click for her. Each one Kim makes is as much an individual as the people for whom she constructs them. Its now her favorite project to undertake and all shes made have come about purely via word of mouth friends telling friends. Id stopped sewing clothes for the girls and then needed something to do, she responds when asked how she started. It was after I had a crossstitching shop with my mom, The Spinning Wheel and then I dont know, I just picked it up. I dont even remember really how I got started. But Ive always had a needle, a craft, something in my hands since the girls were little. Most of the ones Ive done are theyre graduating from college and their moms usu ally have said Youre moving on, give me all your T-shirts and Im going to have a quilt made for you. Or, high school, theyre graduating from high school. The whole quilt tells a story. I like to separate (them), high school or college, not combine both, not college T-shirts with high school T-shirts. She talks of knowing so much about the T-shirts owner, about knowing the kid ah, this was his freshman year, on the basketball team. Time cant be captured in a bottle, but perhaps, in a way, on a quilt. Behind the long-arm machine hangs a quilt of running T-shirts she found at local thrift stores. I went to the Salvation Army and picked up all these T-shirts because I was making T-shirt quilts but people would come in and want to see one. Its a color ful backdrop here, and I think of how wonderful it would be in a bedroom, a game room, on the foot of a bed. Theres no method. Each block is divisible by four, she says of planning her quilts, says they typically take an hour to pin. So its got to be a four-byfour, or an eight-by-eight or a four-by-eight, or a four-by-12 or 16-by-16 because its then mathematical as to how this woman whose book I bought theres a whole formula and everything the computer or graph paper. But as long as its divisible by four each block then its going to work out. And sometimes youve got to put a blank one in because you dont have enough T-shirts. She added, If you can draw it, you can quilt it. Numbers tend to make my head hurt, so I ask if you have to be a math major. She says no, but then goes on with more numbers, fractions even, admits she likes math. She confesses to be controlling, has a short fuse. Projects of this nature, hobbies, things in which you engross yourself tend to teach you a lot about yourself. She admits she ripping undoing some of a quilt shes been putting together. Its that control over the process, seeing it from begin ning to end, that led her to the long-arm machine. This is the reason I bought this, well, take a potter for instance, she doesnt have a kiln so she has to take it somewhere. So shes not really that person is really not completing the project from start Clyde Moore operates local sites ILUVWinterPark.com, ILUVParkAve.com and LUVMyRate.com, and aims to help local businesses promote themselves for free and help save them money, having some fun along the way.

Page 13 Chris Jepson PerspectivesLouis Roney Play On!Twenty-two second lobotomies Using the old beanThis Fathers Day thousands of families usual spark. Hes sad and sluggish. Hes not himself and hes forgetting things. Is it depression or dementia? The two health issues are often confusing to diagnose and Late-life depression Americans age 65 and older, but only one in 10 receives treatment. Factors that put a senior at an increased risk of depression include living alone, unmarried or widowed, certain medications that may be chronic pain/illness. When people are deing, which usually leads to forgetfulness. For this reason, many families may immediately think Dad has dementia. Instead of jumping to conclusions, we suggest providing Dad with an in-home caregiver, even if its just for a few hours a day. Its one of the greatest gifts you can give him this Fathers Day because caregivers are trained in dementia care they can help families notice classic signs of dementia vs. depression. Caregivers also provide critical companionship at a time when dad may feel lonelier than hes letting on. age 65 or older, have experienced depression at some point in their lives. Learning how to recognize the signs of depression and dementia is so important because often time Dad is the last one to ask for help. A 2008 study from strong, independent, tough and self-reliant. The study calls the contrast between mens and womens help-seeking behavior a growing concern. sion, dementia or a physical ailment but often wont ask for help. Plus, its quite normal that seniors often choose to delay treatment for depression because they fear they may have dementia. In fact, a recent study in the Jour nal of Neurology suggests that depression may increase the risk of dementia. Thats one more reason for people to educate themselves and depression to help Dad early on is key.Dale Gardner is the owner of Senior Helpers, 1850 Lee Road, Suite 140 ( Winter P ark. Call 407-628-4357 or visit www.seniorhelpers.com/orlandoFinding new and more economical ways of saying things is admirable it seems to me. Through the years, I have listened to a colleague of far more formal education than I can claim begin many sentences with, At this point in time. even clairvoyance, I conceived a briefer way to convey the expression in a way that saves all of the phrases portent. My novel substitution was the word now! Kindly let me elucidate: If my colleague says, At this point in time Im planning to rob a bank, couldnt he accomplish the same end by saying, Now Im planning to rob a bank? This example of simple semantic economy has several ramifying applica tions. The phrase at this point in time letters. Now is only one word and contains but three letters. And yet now expresses the same meaning as the longer phrase amazing, isnt it?! If this colleague becomes our leader, he has a secretary. In that case, consider that a secretary could type now six times in the time it takes to type one at this point in time. Such assiduous labor saving would clearly make life better for secretaries, save much paper, and reduce the reading time for recipients. In a college in Massachusetts, which has mutated in the last seven decades so much as to be now almost unrecognizable to me, I sat in an ancient hall and reveled in the spoken words of Howard Mumford Jones. Jones was a great don. Lecturing us then on W. Somerset Maugham, Jones was not as adoring as were most of Maughams readers who merely enjoyed an accomplished sto ryteller. Jones said to us lads: Young gentleman, when Mr. Maugham lapses into his fancy writing, I positively gag! Maughams characters say such things as, When I was out in India, I was by way of being a sanitation engineer. Gentlemen, what the hell is by way of being something? The question is, was the man a sanitation engineer, or not? Its (expletive deleted)! Jones snorted, no longer shock us at this point in I mean, now. Jones liked Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Jones enjoyed the word concomi tant, perhaps because it expresses what only several other combined words can. In Jones exams, consisting of essay ques tions, I was sure to use concomitant at least once. This was homage to a master and to what he taught us. George Bernard Shaw left a lot of money to a movement to modernize English by overhauling our strange archaic spelling in favor of shorter, logically fashioned words. He ran into a beehive when implacable defenders of a tenuous status quo prolonged the ways weve been spelling GBS said that dough should be spelled doe, though should be tho, through should be thru, cough should be cawf, tough should be tuf, bough should be bow, fought should be fawt. bought should be bawt, enough should be enuf as in enuf awreddy, etc. Patently, old G.B. Shaw at that point in time was by way of being premature in his ideas. He once wrote a pretty Atlanta deb that he would like to father her child if the child could have his brains and her looks but feared lest the result be the other way around!About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney)I recommend the hour-long Moyers & Company TV program, which airs Sunday mornings on PBS. Bill Moyers has been around for years. Most of us were introduced to him as President Lyndon B. Johnsons White House press secretary. His show presents important issues with knowledgeable people in an attempt to add fact and intelligence (reason) to our national discourse on politics and gover nance. Moyers is the only such show on politics that I am currently watching. Ive quit watching the network news or any of the cable programs devoted to politics. I was never able to bring myself to watch (other than for a laugh) the Fox programming of Dreck, Inanity and OReally. Glenn Beck drank the KoolAid. Inanity is as his name suggests and OReillys No Spin Zone is a loopy con tradiction of terms and should be more aptly named No Facts Zone. The MSNBC stable of show hosts has become dreary, too. Matthews, Sharpton, Maddow and ODonnell continue to shill the company line provided by Democrats. They see victims everywhere and what is government going to do about it? Oh, Ill start watching again this fall but what are summers for, but vacations? Relief. Most Americans get information on their communities from their local TV stations. What passes for news is presented in 30-minute evening segments that are so insulting to the intelligence as to be comi cal. In 30 minutes, how much airtime, on average, is devoted to substantive news on our communities? Im not talking about sports or weather but information on our local or state governments, transportation or essential school news. Research indicates it is 22 seconds. Thats right, folks, 22 seconds. Instead we get a TV talking head describing how Abraham Oliver poured gasoline on his girlfriend, all accompa at Five segment announces an elderly sexual assault in Titusville. And, yes, of course, a video of thieves conducting a nighttime pawnshop heist in Ocala. Ocala! And how about a closing 12-second seg ment on Casey Anthony being sued for defamation? Id rather have a colonos copy. Whats that? They are one and the same. No, watching local TV news is a lobotomy. On his June 3 program, Bill Moyers interviewed psychologist Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind. Haidt discusses moral psychology and its implications for our political system. He acknowledges personally moving from a liberal perspective to a more conservative one as a result of his lifelong research and writing. Haidt asserts that politics is really religion from the perspective of sa credness (What it aspires to accomplish). And that tragically for the nation, weve moved to a Manichaean confrontation where each side (conservative/liberal) believes were living in reality and the course, you dont ever compromise with evil. I, for one, have never thought Republicans evil theyve just sold out. Much like their Democratic brethren. Our political system is corrupt, our politicians corrupt (I am sure your congressman is quite the exception). Our Supreme of Commerce and the No. 1 job for the president is fundraiser (and all that that implies and money buys). No demonization of the other side and clean up congressional corruption. Good luck with either. Oh, a Live at Five exclusive! Lindsay Lohan to play Casey Anthony. Details at 11. Lobotomy anyone?Jepson is a 24-year resident of Florida.

Here are some quick pointers on how to make your money work for you in the Central Florida real estate market: 1) CASH IS KING. Dont have enough of your own? Pair up with a partner and join forces. If youve got your own private sellers alike prefer cash in most cases as you can close quickly and take the PROPERTY BY ITS COVER. This is pretty much the opposite of the dating advice and look for the diamonds in the rough. Flooring, paint, appliances and lawn care and can turn an ugly house into beauty queen in no time. rental market is a perfect storm for wouldbe investors. According to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Asso ciation of Realtors, not only did we see a rental fee increase of 3 percent overall in the third quarter of 2011, the growth trend is set to continue. Think about it, with all the homes being foreclosed on, many buyers will need to rent for at least the next few years. Rents will likely continue to grow at the annualized rate of 3.5 percent and double in the next 20 years with home prices following suit. (Realtor magazine, Lawrence Yun). The moral of the story is there is big money to be made in real estate investing and many are already making a killing right now. Dont wait till the market prices go up again, remember, buy low, sell high. Get out there and become your own Don ald Trump, comb-over not required!Christina Rordam is a local Realtor.

On the surface, the upward trend in existing home values would appear to hurt affordability, but in actuality it moves buyers whove been sitting on the fence to pull the trigger and make purchases while prices and market conditions remain fa vorable, said Hillman, president of Fannie Hillman + Associates, recognized as one of Central Floridas top residential real es tate brokerages, and a leader in the sale of luxury lakefront homes. Median sold prices of existing homes in Orange and Seminole counties have grown nearly 10.6 percent in the rst ve months (January-May) of this year, and are up 13.3 percent over the median sold prices for existing homes in that same ve-month period last year, Hillman said. In addition to rising prices, another indicator of market strength is current inventory, which totaled 5,614 homes on May 29, a robust 54.8 percent reduction of the 12,422 homes that were on the market on May 31. Add to those factors record-low home loan rates averaging 2.97 percent for a 15-year, xed-rate mortgage and 3.75 percent for a 30-year, xed-rate mortgage on May 31, according to a Freddie Mac report.

Price and Pamela Ryan were inducted into the Hot 100 Hall of Fame. NAI Realvest negotiates leaseNAI Realvest recently negotiated a new lease agreement for 2,000 square feet of ofce space at Herndon Center, 615F Herndon Ave. in Orlando. Michael Heidrich, a principal at NAI Realvest, negotiated the lease representing the land lord, LBJ Properties of Winter Park. The tenant is Mi Familia Vota education fund.For many, the dream of owning real estate began to fade over the last few years. With depressed values, impossible credit standards and a distaste for real estate in general, sometimes a perception exists that investing in real estate is not a wise choice. With the right structure, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, those forgoing ownership equity in their investment portfo lio over the long term. To illustrate, compare the cost of leasing a 5,800-square-foot similar space, making the follow ing assumptions: rate at $20 per square foot lion (about $245 per square foot) After one year, the lessees net expenses after tax deductions amount to roughly $90,000. A comparable property owner tak ing advantage of tax deductions, depreciation and accounting for paid principal demonstrates a net expense of about $51,000. If those assumptions are extrapolated over a 10-year term with an annual appreciation of 3 percent, the owner realizes a cash savings of nearly $970,000! Note that lenders are in much stronger capital positions and ready to put capital to use by rebuilding their commercial portfolios, with owner-user deals being the most attractive. Banks are pursuing owner-occupied rates remain at historic lows. As a result of the soft market conditions, there is excellent value to be found throughout all sectors of the development community. Reduced land costs, aggressive pricing from design professionals/consultants and competitive construction costs sees the opportunity to consider ownership at lower real costs to their business. A build-to-suit option pro vides the unique opportunity to no landlord. layout allows space to be built to operational needs, more easily and systems that meet the quality, security and reliability goals of the business. tastes and presentation prefer ence. landlord means the business is immune to volatility in future lease renewal negotiations. When assessing the option of owning versus leasing, the following should be considered: of the principals the personal asset. the quality of the premises and the submarket. ing obligations. Once the parameters are set, a sionals must be engaged who can manage the myriad of details necessary to bring a development project to fruition. For the unini tiated, many of these issues can be somewhat daunting. Getting it right with proper site selection/ due diligence, land planning and an understanding of the total development costs will set the course for a success. Once these issues are understood, the process of obtaining land-use approvals, completing design, begin. Your development team members must navigate you through the process and help you avoid the pitfalls that exist at every turn. With a skilled team, interests are being looked after while the process is kept moving forward. When done right, there are few better long-term investments for yourself, your business and your retirement. There is one in your front door every morning knowing that it is just that, yours.

Page 8 The special report that aired on May 22 on WESH Channel 2 (WESH 2), Are Red-Light Of fense Chances Better Before a Judge? is based on an inaccurate premise: that defendants repre sented by lawyers get better treat ment before a judge than those who are not. At least where the city of Maitland is concerned, this biased portrayal of the red-light camera infraction prosecution process is uninformed. WESH 2 was invited to attend various Maitland red-light camera hear ings yet chose to attend only the one that was included in its re port. As an example to show that defendants are treated equally, the city sent WESH 2 a transcript from a Feb. 17 evidentiary hear ing in which a Maitland defen dant, represented by counsel, was found guilty of the red-light viola tion. This proceeding and its out come were not reported. WESH 2 would have realized the overall equality of defendant treatment in the courts had they attended more than one set of Maitland hearings. The city believes in prosecut ing each contested red-light cam era case to implement the goals of Program. Those like Greg Fox of WESH 2, who wrote the special report and is skeptical of red-light camera tickets, often conclude the primary motivation behind the program is money. They would do well to ask Melissa Wandall her thoughts on the matter. Her husband, Mark, was just 30 years old when he was killed in an au tomobile accident less than one mile from his Bradenton home. He was the passenger in a car that was broad sided by a driver who ran a red light. He died less than wedding anniversary and just 19 days before the birth of his daugh ter, Madison Grace. Cities such as Maitland do gain limited revenue from the tick ets. However, the majority of the revenue, 52 percent, goes to the state. The remaining 48 percent that goes to local government is misleading because the vendor who supplies the red-light cam eras is paid out of those remain ing funds. Any funds realized by local governments are minor in comparison to the gains in safety provided by a system that in its short life span has already helped ensure safer roads for us all. Red-light cameras have re vealed epidemic levels of redlight violators. In Maitland, there are six red-light cameras. All have been active for less than one year, with one-third active for less than six months. However, prelimi nary data reveals a total of 15,963 camera-captured violations have occurred through April. Prior to the citys adoption of the pro gram, the intersection of Keller Road and State Road 414 (Mait land Boulevard) was one of the most dangerous intersections in Maitland. Since the red-light cam era went online, crashes at this intersection dropped by 40.74 per cent. Furthermore, since Maitland adopted the program, the number of red-light runners has declined monthly from a high of 2,414 ci tations issued in October to 1,273 citations in March a decrease of nearly 50 percent. Improvements to public safety are undeniable. The program works. WESH 2s inaccurate portrayal of red-light camera defendant in justice is just another way of try ing to discredit the program. The station should be more concerned with the safety of our citizens. Lives have been saved. The streets are now much safer for our resi dents and visitors.

Page 10 Lifestyles A walk down the hallways of Brookshire Elementary School in its last few days conjures feelings of sadness and excitement, saying goodbye and welcoming new be ginnings and the not-so-faint smell of paint. Every hallway at the school has become an art class in itself students write their memories, spotlight their friendships and phants and smiling suns. The chil dren spent their last couple days of this school year saying farewell to their old school by painting on all the walls and throwing a gi ant party where they all danced, laughed and even made a photoop visible from the sky by using every single student in the school to spell out BE on June 5. Ive seen tears today we needed this day to say goodbye, Principal Marc Rummler said. Its closure, parent Elizabeth Scivally said. Brookshire Elementary in Win ter Park has been around since 1960, and while the school has tried to keep up with more stu dents and new technologies, this year was its time for a face-lift. Parents have been waiting years for the school to get renovated, Rummler said. Nows our time to be rebuilt, he said. Over the next year, Brookshire will be demolished and recon structed. In the meantime, the students will be attending class at a swing school newly named Brookshire West, located at 1500 Falcon Drive in Winter Park. The plan is for the Brookshire home campus to reopen summer 2013 and classes to resume there in the fall. The rebuild is necessary, Rum mler said. The schools age has contributed to problems, includ ing recurring air quality concerns for students and teachers. Theyre also lacking in technology. Out side hallways have been con verted to inside ones, and white boards have been screwed over blackboards, but it isnt enough. The new school will have more computers, interactive white boards, a built-in audio system to broadcast teachers voices loud and clear and a document camera projection system to use. Teachers love all the new technology, but are even happier that their new school will be free of health wor ries. Just having a clean, healthy teaching environment, teacher Paula Harmonay said. The new school will also pro vide a safer environment for stu dents. While the current school is basically an open campus, the new building will have one way to get into the school, a locked students will be under one roof, and all the doors can only be un locked using a card with a special chip in it. One drawback while the stu dents attend the swing school during the year of construction is that most of the students will be riding a bus to school because of its distance, whereas before most lived close enough to walk or ride that the transition will be easy for students and parents, though, by posting photos of their temporary home, hosting events to tour the school and including parents on all construction updates. Orange County School Board member Joie Cadle said its the parents who might have trouble adjusting, not their children. Kids dont care as long as their teachers are there, Cadle said. Our children are pretty re silient. And thats the key what makes the school isnt the build ing. community that make our school what it is, teacher Krista Cook said. Its the people. Thats clear to the students, too. One special little painting by a student spells out Brook shire and describes the school us ing each letter. Brookshire is in my heart, remembering and home to that student. Its been a special part of Winter Park for more than 50 years and genera tions of families have attended, but its time for a new place to make new memories. Change is hard its hard on anybody, incoming PTA presi dent Amanda Schaefer said. This building has been our home. Find I LUV Winter Park merchandise and local art at The Attic @ Down East The students of Brookshire Elementary will be attending class at newly named Brookshire West, located at 1500 Falcon Drive in Winter Park, while their old school is demolished and rebuilt over the next year.

Send submissions to jandreasson@ turnstilemediagroup.com Ever since she was a little girl, Lynn Dickerson always liked danc ing. But when she went to an aero bics class at age 16, her dancing shoes were a step behind. I couldnt get the steps right and the instructor laughed at me, she said. Theyd say go left and I would go right. By the time I got it, they were already onto something else. That was when she realized that some people are more gifted than others when it comes to dancing. But she claims that as long as youre moving, youre dancing. That was how she came up with the idea to create a place where peo ple could go and not feel pressured to do everything perfectly. Moths swarmed from counter to ceiling at her moms North Carolina home when she arrived for a visit four months ago. I was trying to hit the moths said, This would be hilarious in a dance, she said. clothes hangers to mops, and so forth. Shortly after returning home, she decided to follow her dream of starting her own dance studio using props inspired by her buggy experi ence. She found a place to rent just a couple miles from her house. She always had a vision of what she wanted the place to look like, and from there, it all just came together. Yellow, green and orange walls and a dark chocolate ceiling greet would-be dancers with a kaleido scope of color, giving the studio a New Orleans vibe. With the formerly white walls painted and the props in place, Lynn had no trouble coming up with a name. Dancing with mops and clothes hangers is hilarious, and its not a workout so I didnt want to have it Hilarious Workout, because we dance, she said.

Page 12 Opinions Not everyone has a neighbor with a 14-foot-long arm Gammill sewing machine in her house. I do. Its the sort of unusual sight long, with lights along the top, handles to crank on the side. My neighbor Kim DeJong, the ma chines owner and user, admits intimidating. I kind of stood and looked at it for about two months, she said. Then she talks of the point in which you must dive in. On Sunday afternoon, as we talked and she laughingly dealt with some of my crazier questions about the machine, she explained how to use it and discussed what she uses it for: making quilts. Kim and her quilts are the sort of story I enjoy most: local resi dent celebrating local in a unique way. Its also a story of recycling, repurposing, of creativity. Yes, she makes quilts similar to ones youve seen, but her specialty mix is big on nostalgia, takes memories from a drawer or closet and puts them on display. She takes those T-shirts you may never wear again but cant bring yourself to part with and makes them something functional, use ful, beautiful. She told me of one recent customer who started to Kim had made for her of her sons T-shirts. About three years ago, as one of Kims daughters, Caitlin, was wanted to take the T-shirts shed acquired during those years and make a single quilt featuring them. Shed seen cookie cutter T-shirt quilts that didnt click for her. Each one Kim makes is as much an individual as the people for whom she constructs them. Its now her favorite project to undertake and all shes made have come about purely via word of mouth friends telling friends. Id stopped sewing clothes for the girls and then needed something to do, she responds when asked how she started. It was after I had a crossstitching shop with my mom, The Spinning Wheel and then I dont know, I just picked it up. I dont even remember really how I got started. But Ive always had a needle, a craft, something in my hands since the girls were little. Most of the ones Ive done are theyre graduating from college and their moms usu ally have said Youre moving on, give me all your T-shirts and Im going to have a quilt made for you. Or, high school, theyre graduating from high school. The whole quilt tells a story. I like to separate (them), high school or college, not combine both, not college T-shirts with high school T-shirts. She talks of knowing so much about the T-shirts owner, about know ing the kid ah, this was his freshman year, on the basketball team. Time cant be captured in a bottle, but perhaps, in a way, on a quilt. Behind the long-arm machine hangs a quilt of running T-shirts she found at local thrift stores. I went to the Salvation Army and picked up all these T-shirts because I was making T-shirt quilts but people would come in and want to see one. Its a color ful backdrop here, and I think of how wonderful it would be in a bedroom, a game room, on the foot of a bed. Theres no method. Each block is divisible by four, she says of planning her quilts, says they typically take an hour to pin. So its got to be a four-byfour, or an eight-by-eight or a four-by-eight, or a four-by-12 or 16-by-16 because its then mathe matical as to how this woman whose book I bought theres a whole formula and everything the computer or graph paper. But as long as its divisible by four each block then its going to work out. And sometimes youve got to put a blank one in because you dont have enough T-shirts. She added, If you can draw it, you can quilt it. Numbers tend to make my head hurt, so I ask if you have to be a math major. She says no, but then goes on with more num bers, fractions even, admits she likes math. She confesses to be controlling, has a short fuse. Projects of this nature, hobbies, things in which you engross yourself tend to teach you a lot about yourself. She admits she ripping undoing some of a quilt shes been putting together. Its that control over the process, seeing it from begin ning to end, that led her to the long-arm machine. This is the reason I bought this, well, take a potter for instance, she doesnt have a kiln so she has to take it somewhere. So shes not really that person is really not completing the project from start Clyde Moore operates local sites ILUVWinterPark.com, ILUVParkAve.com and LUVMyRate.com, and aims to help local businesses promote themselves for free and help save them money, having some fun along the way.

Page 13 Chris Jepson Perspectives Louis Roney Play On! Twenty-two second lobotomies Using the old bean This Fathers Day thousands of families usual spark. Hes sad and sluggish. Hes not himself and hes forgetting things. Is it depression or dementia? The two health issues are often confusing to diagnose and Late-life depression Americans age 65 and older, but only one in 10 receives treatment. Factors that put a senior at an increased risk of depression include living alone, unmarried or widowed, certain medications that may be chronic pain/illness. When people are de ing, which usually leads to forgetfulness. For this reason, many families may immediately think Dad has dementia. Instead of jumping to conclusions, we suggest providing Dad with an in-home caregiver, even if its just for a few hours a day. Its one of the greatest gifts you can give him this Fathers Day because caregivers are trained in dementia care they can help families notice classic signs of dementia vs. depression. Caregivers also pro vide critical companionship at a time when dad may feel lonelier than hes letting on. age 65 or older, have experienced depression at some point in their lives. Learning how to recognize the signs of depression and demen tia is so important because often time Dad is the last one to ask for help. A 2008 study from strong, independent, tough and self-reliant. The study calls the contrast between mens and womens help-seeking behavior a grow ing concern. sion, dementia or a physical ailment but often wont ask for help. Plus, its quite normal that seniors often choose to delay treatment for depression because they fear they may have dementia. In fact, a recent study in the Jour nal of Neurology suggests that depression may increase the risk of dementia. Thats one more reason for people to educate themselves and depression to help Dad early on is key. Dale Gardner is the owner of Senior Helpers, 1850 Lee Road, Suite 140 Winter Park. Call 407-628-4357 or visit www.seniorhelpers.com/orlando Finding new and more economical ways of saying things is admirable it seems to me. Through the years, I have listened to a colleague of far more formal education than I can claim begin many sentences with, At this point in time. even clairvoyance, I conceived a briefer way to convey the expression in a way that saves all of the phrases portent. My novel substitution was the word now! Kindly let me elucidate: If my colleague says, At this point in time Im planning to rob a bank, couldnt he accomplish the same end by saying, Now Im planning to rob a bank? This example of simple semantic economy has several ramifying applica tions. The phrase at this point in time letters. Now is only one word and contains but three letters. And yet now expresses the same meaning as the longer phrase amazing, isnt it?! If this colleague becomes our leader, he has a secretary. In that case, consider that a secretary could type now six times in the time it takes to type one at this point in time. Such assiduous labor saving would clearly make life better for secretaries, save much paper, and reduce the reading time for recipients. In a college in Massachusetts, which has mutated in the last seven decades so much as to be now almost unrecogniz able to me, I sat in an ancient hall and reveled in the spoken words of Howard Mumford Jones. Jones was a great don. Lecturing us then on W. Somerset Maugham, Jones was not as adoring as were most of Maughams readers who merely enjoyed an accomplished sto ryteller. Jones said to us lads: Young gentleman, when Mr. Maugham lapses into his fancy writing, I positively gag! Maughams characters say such things as, When I was out in India, I was by way of being a sanitation engineer. Gentlemen, what the hell is by way of being something? The question is, was the man a sanitation engineer, or not? Its (expletive deleted)! Jones snorted, no longer shock us at this point in I mean, now. Jones liked Charles Dickens and Mark Twain. Jones enjoyed the word concomi tant, perhaps because it expresses what only several other combined words can. In Jones exams, consisting of essay ques tions, I was sure to use concomitant at least once. This was homage to a master and to what he taught us. George Bernard Shaw left a lot of money to a movement to modernize English by overhauling our strange archaic spelling in favor of shorter, logi cally fashioned words. He ran into a beehive when impla cable defenders of a tenuous status quo prolonged the ways weve been spelling GBS said that dough should be spelled doe, though should be tho, through should be thru, cough should be cawf, tough should be tuf, bough should be bow, fought should be fawt. bought should be bawt, enough should be enuf as in enuf awreddy, etc. Patently, old G.B. Shaw at that point in time was by way of being premature in his ideas. He once wrote a pretty Atlanta deb that he would like to father her child if the child could have his brains and her looks but feared lest the result be the other way around! About Roney: HarvardDistinguished Prof, Em.UCF 2004 Fla. Alliance for the Arts award (Assisted by beautiful wife Joy Roney) I recommend the hour-long Moyers & Company TV program, which airs Sunday mornings on PBS. Bill Moyers has been around for years. Most of us were introduced to him as President Lyndon B. Johnsons White House press secretary. His show presents important issues with knowledgeable people in an attempt to add fact and intelligence (reason) to our national discourse on politics and gover nance. Moyers is the only such show on politics that I am currently watching. Ive quit watching the network news or any of the cable programs devoted to politics. I was never able to bring myself to watch (other than for a laugh) the Fox programming of Dreck, Inanity and OReally. Glenn Beck drank the KoolAid. Inanity is as his name suggests and OReillys No Spin Zone is a loopy con tradiction of terms and should be more aptly named No Facts Zone. The MSNBC stable of show hosts has become dreary, too. Matthews, Sharpton, Maddow and ODonnell continue to shill the company line provided by Democrats. They see victims everywhere and what is government going to do about it? Oh, Ill start watching again this fall but what are summers for, but vacations? Relief. Most Americans get information on their communities from their local TV sta tions. What passes for news is presented in 30-minute evening segments that are so insulting to the intelligence as to be comi cal. In 30 minutes, how much airtime, on average, is devoted to substantive news on our communities? Im not talking about sports or weather but informa tion on our local or state governments, transportation or essential school news. Research indicates it is 22 seconds. Thats right, folks, 22 seconds. Instead we get a TV talking head describing how Abraham Oliver poured gasoline on his girlfriend, all accompa at Five segment announces an elderly sexual assault in Titusville. And, yes, of course, a video of thieves conducting a nighttime pawnshop heist in Ocala. Ocala! And how about a closing 12-second seg ment on Casey Anthony being sued for defamation? Id rather have a colonos copy. Whats that? They are one and the same. No, watching local TV news is a lobotomy. On his June 3 program, Bill Moy ers interviewed psychologist Jonathan Haidt, author of The Righteous Mind. Haidt discusses moral psychology and its implications for our political system. He acknowledges personally moving from a liberal perspective to a more conserva tive one as a result of his lifelong research and writing. Haidt asserts that politics is really religion from the perspective of sa credness (What it aspires to accomplish). And that tragically for the nation, weve moved to a Manichaean confrontation where each side (conservative/liberal) believes were living in reality and the course, you dont ever compromise with evil. I, for one, have never thought Re publicans evil theyve just sold out. Much like their Democratic brethren. Our political system is corrupt, our politicians corrupt (I am sure your congressman is quite the exception). Our Supreme of Commerce and the No. 1 job for the president is fundraiser (and all that that implies and money buys). No demonization of the other side and clean up congressional corruption. Good luck with either. Oh, a Live at Five exclusive! Lindsay Lohan to play Casey Anthony. Details at 11. Lobotomy anyone? Jepson is a 24-year resident of Florida.

First thing is not to listen to your frat brother/cousin/neighbor down the street that bought in the real estate boom and got burned. The housing bubble has burst futures in Central Florida every day by scooping up steals on real estate invest ment properties. Here are some quick pointers on how to make your money work for you in the Central Florida real estate market: 1) CASH IS KING. Dont have enough of your own? Pair up with a partner and join forces. If youve got your own private sellers alike prefer cash in most cases as you can close quickly and take the PROPERTY BY ITS COVER. This is pretty much the opposite of the dating advice and look for the diamonds in the rough. Flooring, paint, appliances and lawn care and can turn an ugly house into beauty queen in no time. rental market is a perfect storm for wouldbe investors. According to Lawrence Yun, chief economist of the National Asso ciation of Realtors, not only did we see a rental fee increase of 3 percent overall in the third quarter of 2011, the growth trend is set to continue. Think about it, with all the homes being foreclosed on, many buy ers will need to rent for at least the next few years. Rents will likely continue to grow at the annualized rate of 3.5 percent and double in the next 20 years with home prices following suit. (Realtor magazine, Lawrence Yun). The moral of the story is there is big money to be made in real estate investing and many are already making a killing right now.

On the surface, the upward trend in existing home values would appear to hurt affordability, but in actuality it moves buyers whove been sitting on the fence to pull the trigger and make purchases while prices and market conditions remain fa vorable, said Hillman, president of Fannie Hillman + Associates, recognized as one of Central Floridas top residential real es tate brokerages, and a leader in the sale of luxury lakefront homes. Median sold prices of existing homes in Orange and Seminole counties have grown nearly 10.6 percent in the rst ve months (January-May) of this year, and are up 13.3 percent over the median sold prices for existing homes in that same ve-month period last year, Hillman said. In addition to rising prices, another indicator of market strength is current inventory, which totaled 5,614 homes on May 29, a robust 54.8 percent reduction of the 12,422 homes that were on the market on May 31. Add to those factors record-low home loan rates averaging 2.97 percent for a 15-year, xed-rate mortgage and 3.75 percent for a 30-year, xed-rate mort gage on May 31, according to a Freddie Mac report.

NAI Realvest negotiates lease NAI Realvest recently negotiated a new lease agreement for 2,000 square feet of ofce space at Herndon Center, 615F Herndon Ave. in Orlando. Michael Heidrich, a principal at NAI Realvest, ne gotiated the lease representing the land lord, LBJ Properties of Winter Park. The tenant is Mi Familia Vota education fund. For many, the dream of own ing real estate began to fade over the last few years. With de pressed values, impossible credit standards and a distaste for real estate in general, sometimes a perception exists that investing in real estate is not a wise choice. With the right structure, nothing could be further from the truth. In fact, those forgoing ownership equity in their investment portfo lio over the long term. To illustrate, compare the cost of leasing a 5,800-square-foot similar space, making the follow ing assumptions: rate at $20 per square foot lion (about $245 per square foot) After one year, the lessees net expenses after tax deductions amount to roughly $90,000. A comparable property owner tak ing advantage of tax deductions, depreciation and accounting for paid principal demonstrates a net expense of about $51,000. If those assumptions are extrapo lated over a 10-year term with an annual appreciation of 3 percent, the owner realizes a cash savings of nearly $970,000! Note that lenders are in much stronger capital positions and ready to put capital to use by rebuilding their commercial portfolios, with owner-user deals being the most attractive. Banks are pursuing owner-occupied rates remain at historic lows. As a result of the soft market conditions, there is excellent value to be found throughout all sectors of the development community. Reduced land costs, aggressive pricing from design professionals/consultants and competitive construction costs sees the opportunity to consider ownership at lower real costs to their business.

When assessing the option of owning versus leasing, the fol lowing should be considered: of the principals the personal asset. the quality of the premises and the submarket. ing obligations. Once the parameters are set, a sionals must be engaged who can manage the myriad of details necessary to bring a development project to fruition. For the unini tiated, many of these issues can be somewhat daunting. Getting it right with proper site selection/ due diligence, land planning and an understanding of the total development costs will set the course for a success.
