Awkward talk: politics at work
It's tough not to hear the
names John McCain and
Barack Obama these days.
News of their presiden-
tial campaigns floods media
outlets and ripples off the
tongues of Americans every-
where. But there's one place
this sort of chatter still isn't
commonplace: the office.
A 2008 American
survey of 700 executives,
managers and employees
found that just 40 percent
were comfortable talk-
ing about politics at work,
while more than one-third
of them were uncomfort-
able. The other 25 percent
said they were neutral.
The comfortable per-
centage may be on the rise
due to people staying more
in tune with elections, said
Tim May, Orlando-area team
manager for Administaff,
which provides human-
resource services to small-
and medium-sized busi-
"People are becoming
bolder," he said.
But 35 percent still don't
approve. The main reason
a person might not discuss
politics is a fear of offending
someone, May said. There's
also the old adage that says
it's not politically correct to
talk politics, religion or sex
in mixed company.
"That adage kind of
sticks with people," he said.
But that's not true of every-
one, which is a reason why a
business should have a well-
crafted policy that spells
out early on what can be
discussed or distributed on
company time, he added.
By law, employers can
prohibit in-office cam-
paigning. Also, employers
can choose to limit politi-
cal discussions to non-work
times, such as lunch or
breaks, May said.
However, there's no use
forbidding such a topic,
said Foard Jones, chair-
man of the Department
of Management at the
University of Central
Florida's College of Business
"It's just one of those
things you can't stop people
from talking about," Jones
As an employer, Jones
said he would be most con-
cerned about people spend-
ing all their time talking
about politics on company
time. He said there should
be an all-encompassing
policy that addresses non-
business talk: sports, TV,
politics and so on.
He said if people are
allowed to talk about the
Celtics and the Lakers or
"Sex and the City" on
their breaks, they should
be allowed to. talk about
McCain and Obama.
Usually employees will
know when not to share
their views, Jones said. "I
have a very good friend at
work, and we are on total
opposite ends of the politi-
cal spectrum. We just don't
go there," he added with a

a family business. Dipsters,
which served its first cone
in February, has become a
home away from home for
the family of four.
Children stand at the
large ice cream case, faces
pressed against the glass,
trying to choose from a
large selection of ice cream
ranging from 15 traditional
ice creams to three flavors
of 95 percent fat-free soft-
serve ice cream. Dipsters
also carries a sugar-free, fat-
free vanilla and a lactose-
free soft-serve, which is
rotated weekly with flavors
such as raspberry, pineap-
ple, mango and strawberry.
The most popular fla-
vors at the store, the fam-
ily agrees, are Cappuccino
Crunch for adults and
banana and a blue raspber-
ry for children.
The Pecylaks said they
chose their ice cream brands
carefully and actually per-
formed multiple blind taste
tests before theyselected the
manufacturers. "You know
an ice cream brand is good
when the vanilla is good,
because you can't hide the
flavors," Steve said.
Dipsters is most famous
locally for its special dips
that harden when chilled,
such as chocolate or coco-
nut shell. "A.lot of the peo-
ple who come in are from
the Northeast and they
know the soft serve," Kathy
said. The ice cream brings
back pleasant memories for
many people, she added.

be added to the ice cream,

It's easy to forget Geneva is an island

No man is an island, but
our Village of Geneva actu-
ally is. Even those of us who
call Geneva home some-
times forget that it used
to be advertised to north-
erners as "The Island and
Village of Geneva."
If you have recently
driven toward Oviedo on
County Road 426 you may
have noticed a new sign

five bodies of water that
has surrounded Geneva for
thousands of years.

the unique geological for-

such significance to Geneva

unique home by drawing

After a daily summer
thunderstorm only the
damp creek bed is visible
by the roadside, but when
water levels are high, water
does flow through Salt
Creek. It is the western con-

on the northern border,
and Lake Harney through
which the St. Johns River
flows through on the east.
The St. Johns River
connects with the
Econlockhatchee River on
the southern border. The
mighty St. Johns River is
one of a few dozen rivers in
the world that flows north;
two more famous rivers are
the Shenandoah River in

an iPod, Jensen stereo face-

Bob Dallari said Wednesday.
Both Dallari and McLean said
they felt consolidation was a good
move for Winter Springs and could
prove a good move for other cities
in the county as well. But the cities
have to make the first move.
"It's certainly open to anyone,
but it's not something we're going
to try to dictate," McLean said.
"With today's fiscal challenges, it's
certainly something to consider."
Winter Springs Commissioner
Brown, who voiced opposition to
the plan, said that the city should
work to fix its own problems. "We
are giving away our fire depart-
ment," Brown said.
But it's time to cut the depart-
ment loose, city Fire Union President
Jeff McCall said. Most

There were grade-school children,
kids in strollers, kids hanging onto
their grandparents' hands, and
whole classes of kids in match-

They got their hands dirty, looked
for buried treasure, explored caves

World while finding out how the
world works. At the Science Center,
families can search for aliens, visit
the rainforest and discover "mys-
tery" bugs, travel inside the human
body, and dig for fossils.
Children and parents alike will
enjoy using scientific tools to ex-
plore four amazing worlds: the hu-
man body, space, dinosaurs and
rainforests. Learn about the won-
ders of science while playing with
bugs, digging up bones and burp-

role models: Galileo, Isaac Newton,
Charles Darwin and Albert Einstein.
Kids can take a seat in "Art Burn's

Merritt was nurturing, loyal and brave
Oviedo paid its last respects
to Merritt Staley on
Tuesday, June 17.1 I found
myself having mixed feel-
ings. On one hand, it was
a celebration of the life
and the powerful bonds
he formed with his Maker,
four generations of family,
those who might as well be
family, and many friends
of every color, gender and
age group. On the other,
it means we'll have to do
without him for a while,
and that's going to be a
tough row to hoe.
Sitting in the quiet and
cool of the Methodist
Sanctuary, I could see
myself as a child in that
same place on homecom-
ing Sunday. Homecoming
meant everybody came
regardless of what church
they attended. Five gen-
erations of my family have
attended the Baptist and
Methodist churches of
Oviedo, and while I am
primarily a Baptist, I con-
sidered Foster Chapel and
the later "New Sanctuary"
of 1956 to be my second
I recalled the choir sit-
ting behind the pulpit'
underneath the shining
brass Cross of Christ in
stately robes, ready to give
vent to glorious praise.
Within their ranks, there
was a particularly bright
spot that captured your
attention. Merritt Staley's
twinkly eyes revealed a
combination of love, rev-
erence for his Lord's day,
and a mischievous spirit,
all wrapped up in a joyous,
endearing to all and so
That was the first of
many things I thought
about during the service.
There was his ability to
appreciate growing things,
be they plants, puppies or
people, and the natural
desire he had to care for
and encourage them as
they developed. It was a
part of everything he did.
Merritt took over grove
management from Uncle
Jim Lee in 1956, a position
he served with distinction.
I grew up with his son Mike
and worked in the groves in
the summers, where I had
the chance to observe and
learn. By that time, I recall,
segregation was legally
over, but the lines were
still clearly drawn. Because
of Merritt's abilities with
people, I had the good for-
tune to witness a leader
who was firm, strong,
happy, and most of all, one
who practiced humanity
toward others. I saw him
get angry when something
wasn't done right, but I
never saw him disrespect
anyone. He valued his rela-
tionships, considered the
men friends, and if he ever
actually fired anyone, it is
eclipsed in memory by the
positive leadership style he

6 feet to be sunk in the lake
so the suction line could
get water without stran-
gling on debris. When it
came time to float it out in
the lake and sink it, Merritt
got wet right along with
Bud Ross, Mr. Never Fall,
and the other men, taking
the lead in a dangerous
dirty task no one wanted.
For all the gentleman he
. was, Merritt was a straight
talker, which I admired
'cause you never had to
wonder what he was think-
ing. He was fiercely loyal
and quick to rally around
friends and family. One
time at a basketball game
in the old gym, he whipped
up on one of our players,
right on the court. No one
who saw that incident will
ever forget Merritt boiling
up out of the bleachers and
charging onto the court
ready to take on multiple
men half his age in defense
of the wronged party. They
should have counted their
blessings 'cause they knew
not whom they were mes-
I don't suppose we'll
ever know, nor should we,
how many people he loved
and encouraged along life's
way, but there were many,
and I can tell you I was one.
The old folks have a saying
about people like Merritt
when they pass. They'd
say, "He preached his own
funeral." It is a compliment
of the highest order com-
posed of short words and
As part of the service,
we were privileged to hear
two of Merritt's recordings:
"The Lord's Prayer," and my
personal favorite, "Just A
Closer Walk With Thee." His
talent was a gift from Old
Maker; the feeling that you
hear so plainly in his deliv-
ery was from his heart. To
hear once more that gold-
en voice walking through
these beloved melodies was
like unto a child picking its
way through a rose garden,
enraptured by the beauty,
serenity and peace.
We planted Merritt
beneath the shady oaks, a
fitting place, it seemed to
me, for one who so loved
growing things. As in tune
with all things living as he
is, I know he'll be happy
with that. We commented
among ourselves that the
ranks of "The Old Crowd"
are getting pretty thin. It's
true, they are, but we will
cleave to each other as
family and friends, all of us,
until we are no more.
I told Tina it would rain
after the funeral. That's
something we believe in: a
rain after a funeral washes
out the tracks leading up to
the grave, leaving our loved
ones to rest in peace. With
Merritt, it seemed a particu-
larly fitting tribute, and it
came a fine rain with great
bolts of lightning, crashing
thunder, and raindrops big
as nickels leaving teardrops
in the sand before giving
way to sheets of rain to
wash away the last signs of
pain and loss.
When the storm had
passed, I stood in our back-
yard on Lake Pickett, listen-
ing to the lingering sound
of raindrops falling into the
leaf litter from the orange
trees Merritt nurtured so
faithfully. Standing there
in peaceful silence, I heard
the great gates open, and
Merritt's golden voice drift-
ing down from the heavens
on the evening mists for
you see, Merritt is singing
now greater than ever, in

LIZARDS I Competition for bugs pits natives against immigrants
< continued from page A10
invasives will take the best display
perches, putting a hitch in the
courtship of the green anoles. In
some places, the green anoles are
entirely absent," Burkett said.
While a bit creepy to some, espe-
cially when they're unexpected,
these insectivores have played an
important role for decades with
their large appetite for insects and
"The benefits of all of these liz-
ards are that they will help keep
down the pest population," Raub
said. "The negatives about the non-
native lizards are that they could
out-compete our native lizards for
food and habitat and could have
a negative effect on their popula-
One of the most unusual char-
acteristics of a lizard is its survival
mechanism. Because of a single nat-
ural weak point
in the vertebrae, a lizard's tail can
break off easily and will continue
to wiggle on the ground after sepa-
ration. It is believed the movement
of the detached tail distracts preda-
tors. Luckily, for the lizard, a new
tail will grow back within several
weeks as the result of regeneration.
Burkett said people sometimes
mistaken the green anoles for cha-
meleons because they have the abil-
ity to change from green to brown
to blend in with the background.
"They are also not geckos,"
Burkett likes to remind people.
"Geckos have specialized toes that
hang on to things with molecular
forces, it has been discovered. Our
anoles have plain toes, some with
Summer is an ideal time to take
a closer look around the backyard
and have some fun identifying what

itive GREEN ANOLE
'Description: The green anole is the only anole native to the United States. They can grow to 8 inches in length and have longer
-, snouts than the brown anole intruders. They can change color rapidly from green to brown.
-. The anole has different feet than most lizards. Eath toe has adhesive pads called lamellae on its central portion, which allow
,' the anole to cling to vertical surfaces.
S' Food: Anoles eat only live prey such as insects and bugs, sometimes stalking and grabbing prey. They also may eat brown
Habitat: The green anole prefers to live in bushes, in rock walls, patio plants, and trees below 15 feet.
Breeding: Female green anoles can lay single eggs every two weeks and breed from late March to early October. These small
and leathery eggs are buried in the soil.
SOUTHEASTERN FIVE-LINED SKINK
Description: This shiny creature is one of several species of skink in Florida, including the broadhead skink. It generally has short legs compared to other
lizards and grows to a maximum length of 8.5 inches It is very fast and can flick its tongue similar to a snake. The younger skinks are dark bluish-black
with bright blue tails while adults are more brown in color. The males lose most of their lines with age.
Food: The skink prefers insects, spiders, snails and earthworms
Habitat: This ground dweller can be found in dry to damp woods, dead leaves, rotten logs, and '.......H
boardwalks of nature trails. '. -COURITZ GE
Breeding: The skink lays nine to 12 eggs from May to July in rotten logs. stumps, or loose damp soil .OF FRITZ GEL
.... .. SIX-LINED RACERUNNER
SDescription: This very fast lizard can grow to a maximum length of 10.5 inches. It is identifiable by three light-colored lines along each side
of its dark back, and a tail that is twice the length of its body. Male racerunners have blue coloring underneath the head and throat.
Food: The six-lined racerunndr prefers insects, spiders and snails.
Habitat: It is always found in natural dry habitats at ground level and prefers sandy or rocky soil. short grass and dusty roadsides
Breeding: The racerunner lays between one and six eggs from June through August under rocks or logs, or in holes in sandy soil.
SOUTHERN FENCE LIZARD
Sceloporus undulalus undulatus 1 '
Description: The Southern fence lizard, also known as the Fence Swift, can grow to approximately seven inches in length. Its rough body is a
gray and black with zigzag patterns along its back. t 1
Adult males may be very dark gray in color and are identifiable by their patches of metallic blue along the undersides of their bellies and throats.
They like to show off their bright colors by doing what looks like push-ups to attract the attention of females or to defend their territory.
Food: The Southern fence lizard eats mainly insects, but will also eat other invertebrates.
Habitat: These lizards prefer to live in pine flat-woods, hammocks and Longleaf Pine or Turkey Oak areas.
Breeding: The Southern Fence Lizard can lay about eight to nine eggs and will either bury them in loose soil or place them in a cavity in a log -
or under a rock.
Non-native I ,.
S. Description: The brown anole, also called the Banaman anole, is native to Cuba and the Bahamas. It is said to have arrived in South
S Florida and Mexico between 50 and 60 years ago. They are typically between 5 and 8 inches long, with the females a bit smaller. One of
its most obvious features is its brightly-colored dewlap, or throat fan Male anoles display their dewlap when defending their territory and
to attract the attention of female anoles, accompanied by a series of head bobs and what look like push-ups. While the green anole prefers
. to spend time on foliage, the.brown anole prefers the ground.
Food: Anoles eat only live prey such as insects and bugs, sometimes stalking and grabbing prey as big as they are. They may also eat the green
anole and lizard eggs, along with their molted skin.
Habitat: While the green anole prefers to live in foliage, the brown anole is more of a ground-dweller.
Breeding: The brown anoles breed in late spring to early summer. The eggs are laid under decaying vegetation on the ground.
Description: This brown or gray gecko native to Southeast Asia with pale spots grows to
a maximum length of 5 inches. Its unusual toe pads and bulging eyes with vertical pupils
distinguish it from anoles. It's also capable of vocalizing by making a barking noise to protect
territory or ward off a predator.
Food: This gecko eats insects, spiders and other invertebrates.
Habitat It is primarily nocturnal but said to be most active around dusk when rocks and walls
are still warm from the heat of day. They can frequently be found feeding near insect-attracting
Breeding: The Indo-Pacific gecko is unisexual. All individuals are self-fertilizing females,
which allows for large populations.
Description: The Mediterranean gecko is most common in Southern Europe and Northern
Africa. It shares similar traits with the Indo-Pacific gecko and is most easily distinguished
by its bumpy or warty skin. Its unusual toe pads and bulging eyes with vertical pupils also
distinguish it from anoles. It's capable of vocalizing by making a barking noise to protect ter-
ritory or ward off a predator.
Food: This gecko eats insects, spiders and other invertebrates.
Habitat: The Mediterranean gecko is almost completely nocturnal and hides during the day.
in cracks, crevices, and under tree bark.
Breeding: Female Mediterranean geckos lay several clutches of two eggs throughout the
summer. Instances of communal nesting have been reported, with several females laying their.
eggs together under bark, in crevices, or in moist soil.
