This Week
Rep. Tom Feeney's home hosted a media
circus after a suspicious package arrived.

THE VOICE

Rain from Tropical
Storm Fay clogged
and overflowed
canals in the Black
Hammock, covering streets
with as much as 30 inches
of water. Residents blame
the water problem on a
failed drainage system, one
the county maintains.
The residents beside
Lake Jesup say they have
been asking the county for
five years to straighten out
their drainage problems,
but have yet to see results.
."Lake Jesup is Seminole
County'spersonalretention

president of the Black
Hammock Association at a
Sept. 9 meeting.

Dad, son survive night swept to sea


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE
W hen Christopher
Marino's swim
instructor learned the boy
had floated for 12 hours in
a crashing ocean, he wasn't
surprised.
After all, the 12-year-old
autistic boy spends hours
at a time "frolicking" in the
Oviedo YMCA pool, where
aquatic coordinator Kent
Mullens, along with other
lifeguards, taught him
swimming skills.
On Sept. 6, Christopher
of Oviedo put those skills
to the test when he was
swept out to sea along with
his father, Walter Marino of
Winter Park, while swim-
ming in the Ponce De Leon
Inlet. The two drifted eight
miles out to sea, ending up
a mile apart.
At 7:30 a.m. the next day,


Walter was located by a
boater. Two hours later, his
son was spotted by a Coast
Guard rescue helicopter.
Both were in good condi-
tion, a Coast Guard press
release states.
Mullens said he saw a
photo of Christopher sit-
ting in the helicopter on
the news. "I was proud,
but I wasn't in shock,"
he said, smiling. "That's
Christopher."
Christopher, for the last
three or fours years, has
been coming to the pool
with his father, at least
three times a week. There
he spends hours working
one-on-one with the staff,
retrieving pool rings from
the bottom, dog paddling
and floating, Mullens said.
Sometimes when it's
time for him to go, the life-
guards have to pluck him
out because he doesn't

want to leave. It's this com-
fortable, carefree attitude
in the water that many say
is the reason the severely
autistic boy survived the
ordeal.
"His father said that's
what got him through
- the water is calming


for hini," Oviedo YMCA
Executive Director Lucy
Mackuse said.
"I don't think he real-
ized what he did," Mullens
added.

about

boosting

police pay

JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

More than half of Winter
Springs police officers are
underpaid. That's according
to a study commissioned by
the city to determine if its
employees' salaries are com-
petitive in the job market.
Of the 88 city police
employees, 47 earn less
than the market dictates,
the most of any department
in the city, according to the
study. The police depart-
ment also has the smallest
force and leanest budget in
Seminole County, yet the
city boasts one of the lowest
crime rates.
"To say that the majority
of our people are waybehind
the curve is an understate-
ment," Police Chief Dan
Kerr said at Monday's bud-
get workshop.
This "compression" hap-
pens when an employee's
salary doesn't advance as
fast as the market value of
their job. It can cause morale
and motivational problems.
Citywide, 34 percent of
employees would see a sal-
ary increase if compression
was corrected, costing about
$209,000 per year.
The Commission will
decide Monday, Sept. 22, if
it's worth it, when the final
property tax rate and budget
is established. "We're talking
about just under one-tenth
of a mil to fix compression
unless we reduce personnel
or cut other things," Mayor
John Bush said: referring to
a small fraction of a proper-
ty tax rate. A mil is $1 of tax
for every $1,000 of property

Fourth mystery package for Feeney


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

A suspicious envelope addressed
to the Washington, D.C., office of
U.S. Rep. Tom Feeney was found
last Thursday by U.S. House offi-
cials, a spokeswoman said. This
is the fourth suspicious envelope
addressed to Feeney offices, all sim-
ilar in appearance, since Sept. 8.
One envelope arrived at each of
his Florida offices, in Port Orange,
Orlando near the University of
Central Florida, and Titusville. The
first three were deemed to contain
baking flour by inspectors. The
FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force is
investigating.
Authorities were called to
Feeney's Oviedo home last Friday
after he received a package that
lacked a return address. It was
found to be from a family friend,
Feeney said during a press confer-
ence at his home.
As for the four credible threats,
Feeney spokeswoman Pepper
Pennington said they are taking
them seriously, but it won't distract
the congressman. "I hope the guy is
caught and billed for all of the tax-


payer's money being spent here,"
she said.
United States Postal Inspector Ed
Moffitt would not reveal what mes-
sages were included in the enve-
lopes. "A lot of the detail irfforma-
tion is still classified," he said. "It's
fair to say they are recognizable."
Although the material was harm-
less, this kind of activity is consid-
ered .domestic terrorism, he said.
The FBI Task Force, which includes
the Postal Inspection Service, will
examine everything from the hand-
writing, mailing labels and wrap-
pers, down to the type of ink used.
The fourth envelope didn't make
it to Feeney's D.C. office because all
House mail is scanned for suspi-
cious material beforehand, she said.
This scanning process began after
the post-Sept. 11 anthrax attacks,
where the lethal spore-forming
bacteria was mailed, causing 22
cases of the disease and five deaths,
according to the Centers for Disease
Control.
But mail going to Feeney's Florida
offices is not scanned.
UCF criminal justice Professor
Raymond Surette, an expert in
copycat crime, said mailings such as

these occur so regularly that it's not
considered a copycat anymore.
Publicity, he said, significantly
increases the chances of a copycat.
It could even cause someone to mail


an actual harmful substance. "These
sorts of things are the cost of having
a free press ... they can't not give
publicity but they can minimize the
type and level of coverage."

Officials talk Oviedo's water woes


City reaches impasse as it

tries to buy water utility

ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


There was no sweat flying
as six Oviedo city officials
took the microphones last
Wednesday for a town hall
meeting to discuss issues,
but a wetness was definitely
palpable in the room.
Themeetingwasdesigned
to let citizens voice con-
cerns and address questions
to the City Council and city
manager, and after some
quiet moments the topics
came flying, including the
question of when reclaimed
water will finally be avail-
able in parts of the city.
-Until now, the 'city has
been using potable water
to irrigate plants, costing
more money and wasting
potential drinking water in
the process.
City Engineer Bobby
Wyatt said that's a matter
of time, but the city is play-
ing a waiting game at this
point.
"It's being tested by
Seminole County right now,
and only when they're done
testing with it can we start
testing," he said.
That testing is happen-
ing at lines upstream of


the Oviedo water lines to
ensure there are no prob-
lems before the reclaimed
water system is switched
on.
Just down the road in
the east end of Oviedo, two
sets of water and sewer lines
remain disconnected from
each other. That's where
Oviedo ends and Chuluota
begins. The city and the vil-
lage had been rumored to
be in talks to share water
and sewer, but that's only if
Oviedo buys the Chuluota
water utility from Aqua
Utilities Florida.
After being in talks with
the water utility company
for months, the city is at an
impasse, Council members
said.
"It's just an issue of money
at this point,". Councilman
Dominic Persampiere said.
"They think it's worth more
than we do."
Mayor Mary Lou Andrews
was more blunt about the
stalled negotiations.
"They want a ridiculous
amount of money," she
said.
Water questions also lin-

gered about how the state
department of transporta-
tion allowed some areas
of the city to flood during
Tropical Storm Hannah
as pumps at DOT-owned
drainage ponds struggled to
keep up.
"The problem was they
didn't finish the job,"
Councilman Stephen
Schenck said. "They put the
pumps there but they didn't
turn them on until it was
too late."

well. Then there are the 300 or 400 homes
in former swamp.
The Hammock's drainage district, a sys-
tem of pipes, canals and ditches, was built
in 1920, longtime resident Robert King
said. By routing water out of this swamp,
pioneering land developers exposed rich
soil in which celery, onions and other
crops thrived, but much of the land was
unsuitable for development.
"It was absolutely the wrong thing to
do environmentally; it was absolutely the
right thing to do to make money," King
said. "Now we find ourselves here today
trying to figure out what to do."
Because the county hasn't stepped in to
dredge ditches, residents have been tak-
ing the task into their own hands, which
could have disastrous effects. Peterson
said not all of the avenues flow toward
the lake, so residents that dredge ditches
the wrong way are making the problem
worse.
Seminole CountyPublicWorks Director
Gary Johnson, who fielded questions at
the meeting for more than two hours;
said the county legally can't do anything
because it doesn't have access to miles
of canals on private land. Workers can't
cross property lines to perform mainte-
nance without the resident first surren-
dering easement rights, he said.
But there is another option: a one-time'
entry agreement, where the county has
one attempt at maintaining the area and
the residents don't lose any rights. "It's
better to have full easement, but if we
can't have that, the next best thing is a
one-time shot," said Robert English, also
at the meeting -from the county's Public
Works Department.


Shari King, Robert King's wife, was
concerned that if the proposed storm
water utility district is set up by the coun-
ty, the Hammock won't see any of that
money because it will go to the wealthier
areas. "We are a big area with lots of prob-
lems. Is the money going to come out to
us?" she asked. "We could probably spend
all of it."
Johnson said it would be based on
need.
Another strategy would be to estab-
lish a watershed improvement district,
where residents would still be assessed a
fee, but it will be designated for the Black
Hammock area, not the entire county,
Robert King said.
Johnson said the county is ready to
work with the association. The first step
would be to survey the residents, but sev-
eral residents at the meeting expressed
doubt that the county representatives
were going to stay true to their pledge to
help.,
"We got you easements and you haven't
done anything," resident Jack Campbell
said. "We've been trying to do this the
lagt five years." The county has expressed
interest in correcting the flow of Shortcut
Canal, he said, but that fix is just the "easi-
est Band-Aid."
Peterson said figuring out a way to fix
the whole problem is what's important.
"I'm not pointing fingers," he said. "I'm
just waking people up."

have a say in your community. The fee is $20
per year: Call President Don Peterson at 407-
221-4578 for more information.


City officials said that
they were pushing for the
DOT to pre-emptively drain
ponds in the future to avoid
having pumps outpaced
by rising waters, which
left some roads covered in
floodwater during the last
heavy rain.
As for storm water
issues that were affected by
Oviedo's own water man-
agement, there was only
praise from the Council..
"We didn't flood,"

Displaced horses have a new home


How nice to have a week
with less stress about the
weather. Of course we still
have about four weeks of
the active hurricane season
left, so we're not counting
our chickens just yet.
Our hears go out to the
folks in Texas, along the
Gulf coast, and everyone
along Hurricane Ike's path
up through the Maritime
Provinces. This enormous
storm will flood count-
less communities from
the coasts through the
Midwest and up through
the Northeast, but we are
so grateful that the effects
of Ike have been minimal
for us.
Along the St. Johns River,
the water level, although
still high, is dropping con-
sistently every day. As of
this writing, we have seen
a one foot drop in the river


level along Lake Harney,
almost down to the 2004
level.
I am also grateful for
some new friends I've made
as a result of the flooding
- they live in Geneva at the
very end of South Cochran
Road. Some are two-legged,
some are four. Some speak
human and some speak
through their eyes and
whinnies.

Renee and Gordqn Court

temporarily keep our horse
on their lovely ranch that

ter of Geneva. On my first

and he takes it seriously.

Rapaho is curious and

ranch. There is Diva, who
is strong and sweet and
expecting a new baby next
year. Asset is a beautiful

surrogate mother to the
foals.

Oviedo needs museum for its centennial


Just got in from cutting
part of my half-acre of
grass, although at times I
think the yard measures
about two acres, and in this
heat who knows. I do enjoy
cutting the grass lots of
exercise and gets all your
frustrations out.
Since I am taking a.
breather in the cool air-
conditioned comfort, I
thought I would write a
few bits of information for
you. I also want to give you
this piece of trivia: The first
day of autumn is Monday,
Sept. 22.
Do you feel cooler?
I am truly sorry that
I was unable to attend
the Town Meeting last
Wednesday, Sept. 10.
I have heard nothing
but scuttlebutt so I guess
it was very well-attended.
I thought I would relate
some of the information I


heard and you all can think
over on it.
A friend, IB., reported to
me that it was brought to
the attention of all that the
city of Oviedo will be cel-
ebrating its 100th anniver-
sary in 17 years. It was also:
discussed that there was
a deep concern about our
Historical Society needing
help with finally having a
museum.
I remembered she said
that our Claire Evans had
told us at a meeting that
the Evans family would
donate property when
Division Street would be
cut through to Mitchell
Hammock. The site was not
specified at the point she
made this generous offer.
The Council also
expressed an interest in
helping the society secure
grant money for this
museum. I feel we ought


to start now so we can
have a museum building
with history preserved in it
and ready to display at our
100th anniversary celebra-
tions. It would certainly
be a tribute to all of the
people that have made this
city what it is: a welcoming
community.
Many citizens are
unhappy with the
Memorial building's day-
time change ... they liked
the bridge-playing oppor-,
tunity, yoga and other
get-togethers. It was like
a small senior citizens
center. You know, Oviedo
has nothing of the sort.
Everyone goes to Winter
Springs and they have a
very nice facility for just
about everything.
Do you remember just
a while ago when the
Memorial reopened after
a complete remodeling
job and the Woman's Club
helped the decor of the
kitchen that was back in
1996 and it was for the citi-
zens' use for our activities?

the town meeting, send

value. So to fix the problem,
each property owner in the
city would have to pay an
extra 10 cents per year for
each $1,000 of property-
they own.
But Kerr doesn't think.
that "fix" is good enough.
He cited that in other
departments in the city,
such as planning, employ-
ees advance to the top
of their pay scale much
quicker than in the police
department sometimes
in just two years.
City Manager Ron
MdLemore was astound-
ed at that claim. "You've
been adjusted more than
anybody," he said, referring
to Kerr's rising compensa-
tion. He asked Kerr for the
employee numbers of the
people who had been given
such a hike in pay.
"I don't begrudge them,"
Kerr said. "What I'm talk-


ing about is the positions
within the city where peo-
ple have dedicated most of.
their adult life to they've
got a lot of certifications...
that just doesn't seem to
cut the same mustard."
McLemore said he
would like to craft a pay
system that addresses all
the issues, but that's not
feasible. "You're never
going to get it perfect," he
said. "What's our best shot
considering what we got?"
he asked the Commission.
Kerr recommended a
3 percent adjustment to
salaries across the board,
instead of seeing select
positions jump $4,000 or
$7,000. "It's not that I dis-
agree with it (fixing com-
pression)," he said. "Like
McLemore said there's no
perfect way to do it, but
there might be a more
equitable way of distribut-
ing what's there."

Bus fight, bikes stolen, mall thieves


BE ON THE LOOKOUT!
Crime, arrests and
public safety news from
the Oviedo Police Department

By Lt. George Ilemsky


Fists fly on school bus,
someone gets punched
On Sept. 9 a fight broke out
between two juveniles on
a school bus, where one of
them was struck in the face.
The aggressive side of the
parties involved would not
cooperate with police and
had to be restrained.
Witness accounts con-
firmed who the instigator
was A~nd it was also discov-
ered that the combative
juvenile was on home deten-
tion and probation. He was
subsequently removed from
the bus and taken to the
Juvenile Assessment Center.

Stolen parts; thieves
conscious of being clean!
On Sept. 8 Oviedo Police
responded at a dental
office on the 1000 block of
Executive Drive to a report
of three stolen air condi-


tioning units at the rear of
the building. The parts sto-
len from the units were the
condenser coils only the
shroud, fan and condens-
er frame were left behind
along with the electrical
enclosure that contained
the model and serial num-
bers.
After the units were disas-
sembled and the condenser
coils stolen, the thieves then
placed the frames some-
what back together to mike
it appear the units were still
intact. What a novel idea!

Stolen property,
vandalism and crack
On Sept. 9 a bicycle was
reported stolen from the
1000 block of Burnett
Street. The bicycle was evi-
dently left outside, in front
of the left side of the garage,
unattended. Again, if you


value it, secure it!
On Sept. 10 the rear glass
door to the clubhouse at the
Alafaya Woods Apartments
was smashed, setting off the
audible alarm. The premises
were checked and found to
be clear of any intruders.
On Sept. 11 a person rid-
ing his bicycle at night with-
out a light resulted in him
being investigated by the
police. It turned out that the
individual was in possession
of crack cocaine and was
subsequently placed under
arrest for possession of an
illegal substance.
Also that day, a bicy-
cle was stolen in front of'
Blockbuster video store at
the Alafaya Square shopping
center. The complainant
parked his bicycle in front*
of Blockbuster and went
inside the store. When he
came back out, the bicycle
was gone. Again, if you value
it, secure it!
On Sept. 12 a telescope
was stolen from a retail
establishment within the
Oviedo Marketplace mall.
Evidently, it was on display
at the front side of the store
and the employee was all
the way at the rear.
On Sept. 13 a utility trail-
er with lawn equipment was


stolen from the driveway of
a residence in the 400 block
of North Central Avenue. An
incident of crimi-
nal mischief was
reported after a
rock was thrown
through a win- Oviedo
dow of a resi- o okin
dence located at belori

ing to pay for the
groceries. He was
last seen getting into a red
Ford pick up truck. Some
of the groceries were left
behind and recovered. This
is not the way to save on
groceries!

Stolen car, drugs and
an outstanding warrant
On Sept. 13 Oviedo Police
arrested a couple of indi-
viduals for grand theft auto.
Officers followed the sus-
picious vehicle and ran a
license plate check, which


revealed it was stolen out

Mowing to cut down on wildfire risk
in Econ River Wilderness Area
If you visit the Econ River Wilderness Area in the near
future, you may notice some temporary changes in
the pine flat woods and sand hill areas of the prop-
erty. Through a wildfire mitigation grant program,
the Seminole County Greenways and Natural Lands
Program in partnership with the Florida Division of
Forestry will be addressing heavy vegetation of these
areas through mowing. The treatments lower the risk
of wildfire, making it much safer to manage controlled
burns, another extremely effective ecological land
management practice.
* As a precaution, the Wilderness Area will be closed
due to the mechanical treatment for about one week,
which began Thursday, Sept. 18.
The Seminole County Greenways and Natural Lands
Program is committed to ecological land management,
public safety and education of the public regarding
environmental issues. Call 407-349-0769 or 407-349-
0551 for more information.

The art house in Maitland's backyard


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

-W hen a film about a man
who tightrope-walked
between the tip tops of
the World Trade Center Towers
ended, moviegoers began buzzing.
"Man on Wire," an independent
documentary about the extraordi-
nary feat of Frenchman Philippe
Petit, left a group of women, dressed
in purple and red and sipping white
wine, delighted.,
"It's something we all need a
little bit of," Sandra Phillips said of
the Enzian Theater. The Orlando
resident attended the Sunday after-
noon showing of the film with her
Red Hat Society group. Some of the
women came from as far as Apopka
and Lake Mary to enjoy a gourmet
lunch and a film at Central Florida's
only full-time nonprofit alternative
theater, located right in Maitland.
"It's a true experience not just
a movie," Enzian Executive Direc-
tor Shanon Larimer said. "There's
nothing (in the .area) really that
does what we do like we do it." -
Alongwith first-run independent
features, the Enzian hosts a myriad
of festivals and events, including
the nationally recognized Florida
Film Festival, and Popcorn Flicks,
"a family movie shown monthly un-
der the stars in Central Park.
The Enzian also supports local
filmmakers. "It's important to have
artistic outlets such as this," house
manager Pete DiPietro said.
Towering oak trees make the lime
two-story building barely visible
from Orlando Avenue, aka Highway
17-92. The weeping branches shade
a gravel courtyard dotted with ta-
bles, where people are free to relax
with a drink at the new patio bar
before or after a show.

opened the Enzian as a repertory

theater house, which featured clas-
sic films. Less than five years later,
the theater took a risk, deciding to
show first-run independent films.
The move was met with success.
Today the Enzian is one of the top-
grossing art houses in Florida and
has continued its risk-taking, earn-
ing a national reputation as a trail-
blazer in film programming.
The movie marquee and single-
employee box office is reminiscent
of '50s-era movie theaters. The
lobby is lined with pictures and the
signatures of famous directors and
actors, including Oliver Stone, that


have frequented its festivals.
DiPietro ripped stubs off tickets
as guests filed into the three-level
theater, its walls hung with post-
ers from film festivals past. It's set
up like a dining room, with circular

and square tables surrounded by
orange cushioned chairs.
After finding their seats, movie-
goers peruse the menu, crafted by
Enzian Executive Chef Josh Oak-
ley, which includes spiced-up ver-
sions of movie theater fare. The
Bento Box Nachos are crispy wont-
on chips doused with pepper jack
cheese and pickled jalapenos.
Less traditional movie snacks are
the roasted garlic hummus on pita
bread, a roasted mushrooms salad,
thin crust pizza, and sandwiches
with organic meats. Salads and
appetizers are less than $10, with
sandwiches and pizza ranging from
$10 to $14.
Orders were placed and the
guests received beverages just as the
theater lights dimmed. By the time
the short previews were through,
guests clinked forks on plates in be-
tween "ohs" and "ahs" as the movie
opened to tightrope walker Petit
emotionlessly dancing on a wire in
the sky.
Ninety minutes later, bills were
paid, stomachs were full and minds
were content. Fellow red-hatter Jan
Taylor, a first-timer at the theater,
said she appreciated the comfort-
able chairs and the luscious out-
door area.
"It's beautiful here," she said.









We should all be looking to Geneva


Editor's note: This column
was written to publish Sept.
5, but flooding near Ben
Wheeler's home cut out some
important technology -
power and Internet.
When my last column
came out, we all, especially
me, thought we'd seen the
worst of what high water
can do. That was before
the big rain of Aug. 24. At
this writing, Highway 46
is closed between Jungle
Road and Hatbill Road until
further notice.
There was a time when
it was understood that
passage from Geneva to
Mims was a seasonal mat-
ter that hinged on how
high the river was. If it got
high enough to flood the
old roadbed, Mr. Singleterry
simply moored his ferry up
on the west side and waited
it out, which begs the ques-
tion, what are the folks in
Lake Harney Woods doing?
I know what that country
looked like in times of high
water when we used to


hunt the Cameron prop-
erty, and I can only imagine
it isn't pretty.
The storm and the
record high water haye
become of such impor-
tance that the coverage has
eclipsed the search for little
Caylee Anthony. Yesterday
in Orange City I think it
was, there was a meeting
between a city commission-
er and concerned residents.
There was a close-up shot
of a guy screaming, prob-
ably for the benefit of the
cameras as much as anyone
else, "I've lost everything!
Everything! Now what are
you going to do about it?!"
Then there's Geneva.
From the earliest Indian
days, the peoples inhabit-
ing the St. Johns River basin
have lived and died at the -
pleasure of Old Maker.
River life is not for the
faint of heart. It is a drama
with an immensely diverse
palette and those who
have fallen under its spell
will thrive or perish on its
banks, come what may. The

Fourth of July Parade to see
the truth in that statement,
and now in what's happen-
ing on the river.
Today, folks are help-
ing folks, with sandbags,
privately owned tractors,
graders, airboats, personal
watercraft, bush hooks,
hoes and shovels. The First
Baptist Church has opened
its doors as a shelter, and
not looking for a dime from
government to do it, It's
what's needed, so they do it.
That's Geneva.
You won't find an


entitlement mindset here
- that is to say folks wait-
ing on government to act
- but rather a determina-
tion to work together to
bail, pump, feed and care
their way out of this dire
situation, doing what has
to be done without sit-
ting on their hands wait-
ing for "somebody to do
something." It is the stuff
river folk are made of, and
it permeates the DNA of
Genevans. They may have
to swim, but they'll never
abandon ship.


passing of seasons and the
waxing and waning pas-
sions of Mother Earth are
the story of life itself. The
river gives life, and takes it
back again as surely as sun-
rise and sunset.
There was a story in
the Sentinel about a man
and his wife who live on
Whitcomb Road; that's in'
the Rest Haven section, on
and now in Lake Harney.
The picture shows water
several feet high around the
house and the man and his
wife pumping and bailing
water from the windows.
Asked why they didn't
leave, the man replied, "...
this is home, we can live
on the second floor."

was mentioned, they
always added, "Well, those

out there, they'll get along
all right." They were more
right than they knew:
Geneva is unique in that
its people, new and old,
have embraced each other
in such a way that neigh-

and want to. There is a

'Cats claw but fall to Bears


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE -

Winter Park Football Coach Tim
Shifflet said his team would have
to stop the big play Friday night
against the Winter Springs Bears,
but the big plays were what stopped
Winter Park instead.
After the Wildcats' Patrick MPutu
ran 68 yards for a touchdown on the
first play of the game, the momen-
tum was going in the underdogs'
favor.
But the Wildcats fell 31-14 to the
Bears after running back Al-Terek
McBurse raced down the field for a
70-yard run followed by a 74-yard
run in the first quarter alone to add
to an offensive barrage that would
intensify in the second half. .
McBurse would have three big
touchdown runs in the game, help-
ing stun the Wildcats, who were.
fresh off a strong win over Ocoee in
week one.
For Shifflet, it was two games in
one.
'We played a great first 24 min-
utes, but the last 24 minutes I don't
know what happened," Shifflet said.
"We just made mistakes defensively
and they outscored us 17-0 in the
second half."
The Wildcats, having held the
lead early, watched McBurse run
away with the ball to take the Bears-
up by a touchdown before Zee Ware
caught a pass for a touchdown to
tie the game heading into halftime.
But the second half of the game
was all McBurse, who lit up the
scoreboard two more times, with
Greg Black grabbing the last three

points with a kick through the
uprights.
That's already a memory, Winter
Park coaches said, with one of the
year's biggest games looming for
the Wildcats against the Boone
Braves.
Last season the Braves went
undefeated, including a win over
the Wildcats that proved one of
Boone's toughest. That game had


gone into the fourth quarter before
Boone could score to. take the win.
"We always seem to find a lit-
tle something more when we play
Boone," Shifflet said.
This season he might have to
hope for a lot more. The Braves
were runners-up in the state last
year, though in the preseason they
only won by 10-0 over the Wildcats
in a game that also centered on


defense.
"We're going to have to make
it a defensive game," Shifflet said
of Friday's upcoming contest. That
includes stopping big plays that
could turn the game into a blow-
out.
"We can't make many mistakes,"
he said.


Roundup of Friday night football for local teams


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
Week two saw more of the
same for Seminole County
football teams, and a shock-
er for a newcomer. Hagerty
shocked Oviedo at home


with a 35-28 win, giving
the Huskies their first-ever
official varsity win, and to
none other than their cross-
town rival. Two first-half
touchdowns from recently
mended quarterback Jeff
Driskel plus a Caleb Amon


touchdown run blew the
game open early with a 21-0
Huskies halftime lead.
They cruised from
there, allowing the Lions
to score late and often, but
not enough to catch the.
Huskies.


Across town, The Master's
Academy fell to Trinity Prep
38-0 Friday night, on a non-
stop offensive barrage cour-
tesy of leading rusher Austin
Barton.
In a 5A rivalry match
between Colonial and Lake


Howell, the tables turned
on the Silver Hawks with
a 15-12 loss. Neither team
could gain much offensive
traction, and the slow scor-
ing kept the teams neck and
neck until the end.
