Money pours into city campaigns

Winter Springs City
Commission candidates
have 40 days left to win
votes and they're push-
ing hard. Campaigners are
trekking through neigh-

borhoods and waving at
intersections in the march
toward Election Day, Nov.
4. Signs are popping up in
front yards, and even a bill-,
board with a 16-foot-tall
Gary Bonner photo has
risen to greet people at the
city's western gate.,

"It's an eye-catcher," said
Bill Poe, who is racing Jean
Hovey for Commissioner
Robert Miller's seat.
Bonner's opponent,
incumbent Commissioner
Don Gilmore, is ahead
of the pack in campaign
funds raised with" about

$12,000. Bonner has raised
just about $8,700, but he
says he's not worried.
"From my experience,
it's all about effectiveness,"
Bonner said.

H I QUOTABLE history

"The ordeal of virtue is to resist all temptation to evil."
Thomas Malthus (1766-1834) English political economist

Inside the life of a cop

Oviedo Police gave a group of 15 residents the chance to learn just as Police Academy cadets learn on Saturday, at a shooting range in Geneva. The class tried guns ranging from a .38 revolver to a machine gun, above.


11 were silent as the woman
steadied the large black
M-16 assault rifle against
her shoulder. As she set her sights
on the target, she used her thumb
to slowly move the switch from safe
to semi and then she pulled the
As she listened to her first shots
resonate throughout the range,
she moved the switch to automatic
and finished out the 10-round clip.
Before that night the woman had
never so much as touched a gun,
and after- a class with the Oviedo
Citizens Police Academy, she was
one step closer to understanding
what it means to be a police officer.
The free program, which has been
in operation since 1998, offers local
citizens -the opportunity to learn
basic everyday maneuvers typical-
ly reserved for police training. The
three-hour-per-session class, which
meets for 11 weeks, introduces stu-

dents to the basic laws, investiga-
tive techniques, defensive tactics
and guidelines for traffic enforce-
ment and community relations.
Students also have an opportunity
to learn how to safely operate fire-
arms, such as a .45-caliber pistol,
a .38-caliber revolver, a 12-gauge
shotgun and the M-16 assault rifle
at the Seminole County Gun Range
in Geneva.
Graduates are eligible to apply to
become a member of the Citizens
on Patrol, a successful program that
currently has 16 volunteers who
take turns patrolling the city.
People of all ages and back-
grounds sign up for the course, said
Oviedo Police Lieutenant Travis
Cockcroft, who teaches the course.
"We get people who are interested
in going into the (police) acade-
my, to people who always watch
'Cops' on TV, to the adversarial peo-
ple who come in and don't really
care for the cops a whole lot and
we change their mind a little bit,"
Cockcroft said.

Fifteen students attended the
fourth session Tuesday night, held
at the gun range. Officers per-
formed mock traffic
stops using a patrol
car and a plain car and
allowed the students to.
participate in different
scenarios using a rub-
ber gun. Participants -
learned the steps
required when mak- .
ing a traffic stop, and
were reminded how
dangerous it can be to
enter someone else's
environment when
you make the stop.
"They can see why we
get upset if someone "
starts reaching under Tr
their seat. They could OviedoPo
be reaching for a gun,"
Cockcroft said.

mine-if someone has committed a
crime. "It's an eye-opener," he said.
The police also go to
great lengths to famil-
iarize the students indi-
vidually with the safe
handling and the oper-
ation of police weap-
ons. "We try to mirror
a regular police acad-
k, r emy. We go through the
same steps. [The shoot-
ing range] is every-
one's favorite, though,"
Cockcroft said.
Student Lori Shiery
said she signed up for
the course because she
works as a secretary at

her colleagues do out-

economic downturn. But now that he has

Blake has made up his -- -

the public a chance to submit questions for
them to answer.

There will be a meet-the-candidates forum at

A simple anti-theft idea

Oviedo police offer tags

that say 'Nothing to take'

A bright yellow card may be
the solution to keeping thieves
out of cars.
The Oviedo Police
Department's "Stop Thief"
cards, hung from cars' rearview
mirrors, signal to criminals
that there are no valuables
inside and that the doors are
locked a "don't waste your
time" conveyance.
The program began June
1 and more than 1,200 cards
have been distributed, police
spokesman Lieutenant George
Ilemsky said.
The card is also a visual cue
for the car owners, Chief Jeff
Chudnow said. "When you
look at it it's a reminder to
you," he said, "but it's also kind
of like having an alarm sticker
outside of your home."
Theft of money and valu-
ables from cars is one of the
biggest issues nationwide, as
well as in the city.
In July, there were 14 cars
burglarized, according to
Oviedo Police crime statis-
tics. In Seminole County, there

were 1,862 such incident[
in 2007, according to the
Florida Department of Law
"Some people have ten-
dencies n'ot to lock their
cars and there are people
walking around looking for
unlocked cars," he said.
This is especially a prob-
lem in gym parking lots,
where people leave purses
and laptops inside their
cars. Chudnow said if you
are going to store valu-
ables in your trunk, put
them in there beforehand
so people don't see you
do it.
Pick.up the vinyl "Stop
Thief" cards at the C.O.P.S.
and Volunteer Center in
the.Oviedo Marketplace
mall or at the Oviedo
Police Department at -
300 Alexandria Blvd.,
next to City Hall.

The hang-tags offered for free
by the Oviedo Police Department
are hoped to deter car break-in
thieves while reminding owners to
be safe with valuables.

Details epitomize Geneva's spirit

F gBy Karen McEnany-Phillips

Details matter to a writer,
so as I drove through one
of the still flooded areas
of Geneva a few weeks
ago, something caught
my eye. It was in the early
evening of Thursday, Sept.
11, and like everyone I
had been thinking about
that Tuesday seven years
ago, recalling what I was
doing and the awful images
Americans watched that
day. In previous years I had
spent more time reliving
those details leading up to
the anniversary, but this
year, as we found ourselves
surrounded by floodwa-
ters of the St. Johns River,
the memories were some-
what overshadowed by the
watery issues at hand. Back
in the controlled envi-
ronment of my daytime
workplace it was easier to

remember the feelings of
that September morning
in 2001. The confusion
at the sight of the smoky
first tower, the sickening
feeling when the second
plane hit, and the over-
whelming impact when
the towers fell and smoke
filled the Pennsylvania and
Washington, D.C., skies -
all those memories came
back to me.
Although some of the
details have blurred, I
remember the feeling of
being bonded even to
strangers and that a love
of country seemed to unite
us all. This year I was feel-
ing a little sad at that loss
of unity, and the deep par-
tisanship that marks the
2008 election year.
So it was with these
mixed feelings that I came

u pon a small but poignant
scene along a dusty Geneva
road. Two or three pickup
trucks had been parked
along the road in front
of a house that clearly
was impacted by the high
water. A fishing boat and a
small bulldozer were also
nearby. Although the eleva-
tion of the house seemed
higher than the water,
access to it was obviously
a challenge, thus the boat.
Who knows if the occu-
pants had electricity or air-
conditioning? Next came
the details that stopped my
First, a neat pile of sand-
bags was stacked not far
from the gate and mailbox,
ready and waiting just in
case. Next, the homeowner
had taken the time to
hang a brand new, flawless
American flag. In the midst
of the misery and disrup-
tion that came with the
floodwaters, this Geneva
resident took the time to
-remember what America
and Sept. 11 meant and
means to us every day.,
The simple snapshot
of the sandbags and the

pristine flag spoke to me of
independence, resilience,
preparation and patriotism
no matter what burdens
come our way. It demon-
strated a can-do spirit and
a pride of country no mat-
ter what. To me it meant
"We do not forget" no
matter our current condi-
tions, inconveniences, or
how much time has passed.
I toast Ben Wheeler's
words from his column last
week regarding Genevans.
To quote Ben, "Folks are
helping folks, with sand-
bags, privately owned trac-
tors, airboats, personal
watercraft, bush hooks,
hoes and shovels. It's what's
needed, so they do it. That's
We often speak of
Genevans' love of God and
country, and the symbols
of that deep affection have
been evident for many
decades in our village and
surround us still. Houses of
worship support and com-
fort us and the beauty of
God's creations supplies us
with an unending source
of inspiration. Whether
we commune in a pew or

under a live oak, we believe
in a higher power. We
honor our history through
education in our elemen-
tary schools, our historical
society and its drumbeat
of activities, and preserva-
tion of hundreds of items
in our Geneva museum. We
are fortunate to live in an
area where the American
symbol, the eagle, thrives
among us.
In this election year
of political sound bytes
like "Change we need,"
"Straight talk," and "Words
matter," I would add two
more: "Never forget" and
"Details matter."

after a ceremony was held for Miller, who
died Jan. 25 in combat in Afghanistan,
the American Legion post and the City
Council joined her to organize the event.
The Oviedo Woman's Club will supply
breakfast to attendees. Clark, who will
be in town for the event, will speak. Also,
groups such as Soldiers' Angels a group
that sends care packages to soldiers -
the Department of Veteran Affairs and
Military OneSource will provide informa-
tion and resources to the families. The
Oviedo firefighters will be on hand to col-
lect old, tattered American flags, so that
they can be properly disposed of.
Attendees can also sign a contact list,
which will be distributed as a way for fam-
ilies to keep in touch with others who are

dealing with having gloved ones deployed
The event isn't costing the city any-
thing to put on, Andrews said. "It's just a
bunch of people volunteering to have a
nice little get-together."

Half a Heart Away is a social and support net-
working event for the families andt friends of
those in the military. The free event will be held
from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 27, at

Trip to Sanford pays off with reli

Road trips, outings with
friends, and just spending
time away from the normal
routines of daily living are
neat ways in one's life to
break up the monotony.
As a pal of mine said, "You
best watch out you'll get in
a rut." Who wants that? I
stick with road trips.
So a road trip it was with
my friend Susan Witty;
we journeyed to a far-off
place called Sanford. We
toured First Street for a
bite to eat and chose 2
Blondes & A Shrimp for
dinner, and then our main
objective.was the Sanlando
Depression Glass show and
Sale. Wow, I have never
seen such a display of
Depression glass in my life..
Susan and I enjoyed
chatting with the vendors
from Pennsylvania, Ohio
and Longwood,, as well as
vendors right around the

corner. I found the show
fascinating. Susan was
looking for dinner plates to
add to her collection, and I
was browsing.
When we checked in, the
vendors gave us a card to
fill out for the doorprize.
Susan said, "Janet, let's do
it and we might win some-
thing." I said, "OK, I don't
collect Depression glass."
Guess what? About 20 min-
utes later, Susan is in deep
conversation with a vendor
and my name is called. Lo
and behold, I won the door
prize of a lovely relish tray
in blue. We really had a
great time and the vendors
that we chatted with were
just so nice and caring. The-
next show is in January at
the Civic Center this is
o one you don't want to miss.
We will be there. Live a lit-
tle and plan a road trip.
Speaking of a road trip,

mark your calendar for
Oct. 9; it's the Sanford
Alive at 5 event, located on
First Street and some side
streets. They have music,
food, drinks and art exhib-
its and a little bit of some-
Sthing for all of us.
Congratulations and
best wishes to Paul and
Megan Sladek on the birth
of Carson Phillip Sladek,
born at their home at 12:49
p.m. on Sept. 20, and as
Megan said, in time for a
late lunch. Carson weighed
8 pounds, 10 ounces, and is
21 inches long. I must add
that he is really adorable as
the Sladeks brought him to

like, 'give me more,"' she added with
a laugh.
Student William Bower, who is cur-
rently working on a degree in crimi-
nology, said he wanted to get an insid-
er's view of the police department
to better prepare him for the police
academy. He said one of the most
vital skills he has learned has been
how to maintain the proper stance.
"It's important to know how to move
around the suspect, something people

don't always think of," Bower said.
Cliff Zimmer, also a student, said he
hopes to use his knowledge to become
a part of the. Citizens on Patrol pro-
gram and perform community service.
"I work nights so my days are more or
less free and just going to work and
staying home is crazy. So I want to go
out and be more active," Zimmer said.
Officer Danny Sacco, who assisted
in the firearms segment of the pro-
gram, .said he thinks participants get
a new respect for officers after taking
the course once they see what police
do on a day-to-day basis.
"It is imperative everyone knows we
cannot do this job alone," Cockcroft
said, "and we must partner with the
community to reduce crime and pro-
vide a better quality of life for all."

Amendment One and the econom-
ic downturn have hit the city hard,
City Manager Ron McLemore said.
Because the city will lose rough-
ly $1.1 million in revenue in 2009,
three items fell victim to the chop-
ping block at Monday's meeting:
a salary "compression" adjustment
for city employees, the addition
of two police officers, and. all city
events. Chief Dan Kerr had with-
drawn his request for the additional
officers, but Commissioner Robert
Miller fought to get them added to
the budget anyway.
The city plans to establish an offi-
cial volunteer committee to recruit
sponsors to pay for as many public
events as possible. Volunteers .have
already raised the majority needed
for the Hometown Harvest event.
Added back to the budget was a
3 percent salary increase across the
board for city employees and up
to a 3 percent merit increase. Also,
funds were designated for mowing
lawns of foreclosed properties.
Gilmore was against raises for
the city employees in order to keep
taxes lower for the citizens. "I know
people want-raises but I think we
have to give some thought to what's
going on in the economy," he said.

Of all the city departments,, the

Chief Kerr had voiced concern that
compression adjustments wouldn't

fix the problem, recommending
a 3 percent increase across the
board, which is what was ultimate-
ly approved.
Commissioner Krebs voted no
on the motion that set the tax rate,
saying that the city should use city
reserve funds as a "bank" to fund
the city events. "I never meant to say

it would be drawing down reserves
- we would always borrow then

Commissioners Rick Brown,

Crime, arrests and
public safety news from
the Oviedo Police Department

By Lt. George Ilemsky

Fish ordered over
Internet never arrive
On Sept. 19, an act of
Internet fraud was report-
ed when the complainant
wired funds to a company
out of Indonesia for some
tropical fish that were never
received. After repeated
attempts to check on the
status during the last three
months, the complain-
ant believed this to be an
'Internet scam and filed the
report. The victim wired
more than $2,400 for the
purchase of these tropical
fish and never received the
fish or a refund. The com-
pany told our victim its
boss died and it was trying
to get his money back. At
one point it even offered
him some type of car for
a refund. The complainant
feels he is the victim of an
Internet scam and wants to
seek prosecution. Hmmm!

Vehicles stolen and
recovered, with damage
On Sept. 16, a yellow 2003
SJohn Deere tractor model
110 was taken from a site
on Stump Street but later
recovered about 150 feet
from the original location
in a wooded area. The trac-
tor had about $1,000 worth
of damage to the ignition
On Sept. 20, a vehicle
was reported stolen from
the 200 block of Academy
Drive. The owner stated
to police that he left the
vehicle unlocked with keys
in the center console. The
vehicle was later recovered
in .the area of Queen Avenue
with some sustained dam-
On Sept. 21, a vehicle
burglary was reported in the
2000 block of Strand Circle.
The victim stated that she

left her vehicle unsecured
and discovered her hand-
bag that contained personal
information, gift cards and
credit cards to be among
the items stolen. I think it
important to re-emphasize
the importance of securing
your property and letting
common sense prevail.

Oviedo mall isn't giving
out five-finger discounts
On Sept. 15, a loss-preven-
tion officer detained a juve-
nile when she was observed

pack of socks

The juvenile was

subsequently took
her into custody
and issued her a
notice of trespass,
instructing her

On Sept. 17,
a couple was
charged with
shoplifting men's

matter and signed a waiver
of prosecution. The other
merchant pursued the
matter and both individu-
als were given a notice to
appear in court. The prop-
erty was recovered and
returned to the merchants.
On Sept. 18, a young
male was arrested for shop-
lifting some pills from the
Winn-Dixie on Lockwood'
Boulevard, stipulating to
officers that his intent was
to steal them because they
made him feel mellow. The

Mom finds marijuana,
calls cops on son
On Sept. 21, a mother feeling
suspicious about her son's
behavior after he returned
from a behavioral cen-
ter searched his room and
found marijuana hidden
inside the bed. The police
were notified and the juve-
nile admitted the property
did belong to him and he
was subsequently charged
with possession. Other
items of interest included
ski-type masks and bandan-

to be concerned and might
want to pay-close attention
on this one.

They catch rain to save Florida's H20

When the skies opened up
to afternoon showers
during the Oviedo But-
terfly and Nature Art Show at Lukas
Nursery this past weekend, Gabby
Milch jumped into action. "Rain
barrels are an old technology come
anew," Milch said as she swiftly re-
arranged the collection of 55-gal-
lon cisterns on display.'
It was only a matter of minutes
before a considerable amount of
water accumulated in. the large
black drum. "For every half inch
of rain per 1,000-square-foot area,
you can get 55 gallons of water,"
Milch said with a big smile. The
fresh rainwater is free of chlorine
-and other additives so it is ideal
for establishing new plants, flow-
er and vegetable gardens and any
potted plants, Milch
explained. Harvesting Th
rainwater for personal e
use also helps reduce aquifer
storm water pollution the richer

Steve Barnes was also on hand to
make residents aware of the cur-
rent local water crisis.





"Central Florida is a pretty bad
area for waste," Barnes said. "One
of the biggest problems is that we
use more than half of our residen-
tial water on lawns."
It is wasteful to use the potable
water, water that has been treated,
filtered, chlorinated and sometimes
fluoridated to water the grass. "It's
like watering your lawn with beer,"
Barnes said with a laugh.
If people don't start conserving,
Barnes warned, money will have
to be spent on pricey and ecologi-
cally risky measures, such as taking
water from the St. John's River or
creating desalinization plants to
utilize ocean water. Taxes may have
to be increased in order to lay pipes
and to convert to desalinization.
While these options may be inevi-
table in the long run, Barnes said he
aspires to postpone such measures
with conservation.
Currently, Semi-

55-gallon food-grade plastic bar-
rel (recycled plastic if possible),
hose bib, Teflon screening, Teflon
tape, bungee cord, PVC glue and an
adapter for overflow. Milch, along
withVicki DeSormier, Seminole Soil
and Water Conservation District as-
sociate supervisor, decorated some
of the cisterns used at the nature
and art show with painted flowers
and renderings of impressionistic
works of art to beautify the yard.
"It's a nice way to have art and util-
ity combined," Milch said.
People get excited, Milch said,
when they see .how much water
accumulates in the cistern. When
they begin to keep track of rainfall
versus usage, they start to under-
stand the importance of conser-
vation and use less water overall,
Milch added.
"The Florida aquifer is one of the
richest sources of fresh water in the
world, it is irreplaceable there
have been wars to have the kind of
water we have," Barnes said. "We
get almost 60 inches of rain a year,
which is higher than most places
in the U.S. And we still have this
chronic shortage and it's not be-
cause we don't have enough water,"
Barnes said. "It's not a shortage of
water it's a shortage 6f lead'
ship. There is plenty of water to go
around if we manage it properly."

Plants and animals give the real forecast

In Florida, unless there's a
-hurricane(s) brewing you
can figure the weather fore-
cast is gonna be something
on the order of "... partly
cloudy, lows in the mid
'70s, highs in the mid '90s
with a chance of afternoon
thunderstorms" from May
through September.
From October through
March nothing is for
certain, but if you don't
like the prevailing condi-
tions, just wait a little bit
they'll change. That's
what you call "Unsettled,"
*as Mr. Arthur Metcalf used
to say, especially around
Equinox time. Morning
time, you need a sweater
and sometimes a little heat,
or, you start out thinking
it's gonna be warm and
end up fishing' down on the
creek and wishin' you had
a sweater to get you out of
the wind. Then again, you
may dress in heavy clothes
and get down there, nigh
onto burnin' up and go to
peelin' off whatever you
can get away with.
The signs are mixed

this fall. The acorns, mag-
nolia burrs, hickory nuts,
sweet gum and black gum
are all on the heavy side,
which is an indication of
cold weather. On the other
hand, as we know just all
too well, there is a'plenty
water in the ground, which
helps- to moderate what-
ever cold weather comes.
A little bit later on, you
can watch for the squirrels
tearing strips of bark off
the cypress trees to build
nests. If they get real busy
at it, cold is coming. When
the first robins appear, cold
- real cold is 10 days or
less away.
Then there is history to
contend with. For those
of you who don't know
this, our coldest weather
is most likely to come on
full moons. The full'moon
in December comes on
the 12th, a date that has
seen hard freezes in 1947,
'57, '62, '63, '69 and '76.

Sometimes he had dreams;
sometimes he saw signs to
tell the weather. However
he did it, he was as near
right as anyone I've ever
seen. The Old Farmer's
Almanac claims 80 percent
average accuracy for its
long-range weather fore-
casts. I think Limehouse
had them beat.
I remember one time
he came into the packing-
house with a load of fruit
just before Christmas. It
might've been in '83 come
to think of it. That was
the first of the devastat-
ing freezes that moved the
citrus industry roughly
100 miles south of where
it had been considered to
be previously. He stopped
his truck and came hoppin'"
over to where I was stand-
ing. I knew something was
up 'cause he was shaking
his grizzled old head in step,
with his gait.
"Lawd, Mr. Wheeler,
hit's coming, he said.
"Me and Retha Mae was

pickin' tangerines over in
Maitland and we seed a
cherry tree. Hit was pourin'
sap from every limb and
running' down de trunk!"
I waited, thinking further
explanation was to follow.
Limehouse waited, think-
ing I'd know what he was
talking about. I didn't.
Finally he said, "Dat tree is
trying' to shed wawtah so's
it won't bust open and die
when de freeze comes, and
it's coming' in three days!"
I didn't have enough
-experience with folklore
to believe the old man,
thinking it was a bunch of
hokum. He didn't have the
three days part right, it was
more like five, but freeze it
did, and I was convinced.
After that until he died,
when he came by the house
about this time of year to
give me some peas or a
watermelon, I'd get him to
sit down in a rocker on the
porch so I could draw him
into a weather conversa-
tion. He'd tell me what he
thought, and I tried and

that part that I ever did

Now, all that amounts to
this I think we are gonna
have cold wet weather,
earlier than normal, the
first of it coming about
Thanksgiving, maybe the
week before.
Given the moon phases,
I think we're going to have
some really cold weather
around the 12-15 of
December, and the week
of Jan. 5-12. In the second
week of February, there
will be another cold snap,
but it won't match the,
temperatures of December
and January. I believe
December will be the cold-
est month overall, but I do
not believe in a hard freeze,
despite the lower average
temperatures, on account
of the elevated water table
going into the season. A
wet -winter and spring
could very well mean a wet
summer, meaning a busy
hurricane season, but that's
too far off to call, for now.

Creatively cutting corn-
fields for entertainment is
a relatively 'new concept

The park also boasts a

This year the park-has
added a program called
"Fisliing for Kids" in part-

da and the Florida Fish and

mission. Children can be in-

gram for an additional $2.
Group farm tours ,are
also-available for $5 per per-

participants, Hayrides are
offered on the weekends
for the general public for $4
per person.
Sciarrino said the maze
is part of an effort to pro-
vide families with an inex-
pensive way to spend a day
in the country and learn all
about where their vegeta-
bles come from.
"It's our way to educate
and it also provides anoth-

"It is truly a labor of love."

I That cannot fly."
TLE -T- Langston Hughes (1902-1967) American poet

T hree -steps after
scoring the win-
ning touchdown for
the Winter Springs Bears,
Al-Terek McBurse col-
lapsed on the ground with
the slightest of grins on
his face. The humble star
of the Bears offense had
.just done the unthinkable,
the improbable, but all the
same expected, running
more than 60 yards through
five tackles to win the game
in the final seconds against
Timber Creek.
"I've never seen anything
like it," Coach Mike Kintz
said of the final Bears offen-
sive play that would solidify
a dramatic 31-28 win.
The game had been high-
lighted by offensive drives
that went full-speed in the
final quarter, with the lead
changing hands three times
in the final three minutes,
all propelled toward one
climactic moment.
With fewer than 30 sec-
onds left in the game and his
team down by four points,
McBurse knew the ball was
coming to him. The whole
Wolves defense knew. But
they couldn't stop the run-
ning back who has become
the most prolific rusher in
Central Florida this year.
The ball snapped,
McBurse took the handoff
and jerked side-to-side as
his offensive line struggled
, to break a hole open and
let him slip through. But
Wolves defenders got their
hands on him first, nearly
bringing him down near
the line of scrimmage. But
he kept running, with a
chaotic chase following
him downfield during the
course of more than 10 sec-
onds of frantic movement.
By the time he broke a
final tackle at -the 10-yard
line, the crowd had long
since raised its chorus to a

deafening roar.
After the teams shook
hands at midfield, assis-
tant coach Matt Hasselbart
helpedshoulder an exhaust-
ed McBurse as he walked off
the field.
"Did that take every-
thing you had?" he asked
McBurse. All the running
back could do was nod a
sheepish "yes."
"I knew what I had to
do," McBurse said later. "I
did it for my team."
But adding to his own
numbers didn't hurt. In
three games this year he
has more than 700 yards
on offense, much of that
The Bears (3-0) will
need some rushing defense
of their own this Friday
to stop Lake Brantley's
Antonio Miles, who is rdsh-
ing for school records with
the Patriots (1-2) this year.

Oviedo vs. Lyman
The Lions had a big scare
seconds after kicker Sam
Bloomfield launched the
opening kickoff against
Lyman last Friday. Lyman-
returner Jordan Jackson
was racing toward the end
zone when Bloomfield
tackled him to stop a touch-
down, damaging his spine
in the process.
Both teams prayed at
midfield as Bloomfield was
stabilized and taken off the
He was taken to Orlando
Regional Medical Center
for surgery to repair the
injury, and coach Wes Allen
reported that Bloomfield
was moving his hands and
feet, shaking hands with,
visitors, and writing.
The Lions (1-2) went
on to lose by a narrow
30-28 margin, after the
Greyhounds (2-1) came
back with 13 points in the
final quarter.
The Lions will return

hope of snapping a two-
game skid. The Rams are
1-1 after winning their first
game against Hagerty last
week 31-19.

Hagerty vs. Lake Mary
The Huskies put up a fight
in the first half of the game,
but watched Lake Mary's
offense catch fire in the
third quarter to run away
with a 31-19 victory.
The teams had stayed
within striking range of
each other to swap leads
in the first half, but Lake
Mary quarterback Matthew
Flynn found receiver Nick
Beauchamp, twice in the
third quarter to grab an
11-point lead. An intercep-

tion return late in the game
finished off the Huskies.

Dear Sandi,
I have been an administrator for
15 years. Prior to that I worked
in retail as a cashier. I would like
to return to retail, but I am afraid
that people will think I am over-
qualified or my experience is too
old. I love helping customers and
I really don't want the stress of my
current job.

Dear Downsizing
The good news is that most retail
jobs don't require a resume. The
bad news is that your experience
was so long ago. Since cashier
and retail jobs have become more
computerized,you can emphasize
those skills as transferable. Also,
most retailers will ramp up in the
next couple of months for the sea-
son. Many times they do hold on
to great employees, after the sea-
son ends.
Be persistent, go to stores you
shop in, and meet the manager
if you can. Let them know how
much you like shopping there and
that you are interested in work-
ing there. Highlight your customer
service skills. Customer service is
the most important skill in retail.
Best wishes,

Sandi Vidal is the executive director for Christian
HELP and the Central Florida Employment Council,

resources experience. Please send questions

To celebrate or not to celebrate?
Winter Springs makes the call.
The turmoil created by our won-
derful property tax break coupled
with the economy that is rapidly
becoming a shambles has lead
to some interesting comments
at local commission meetings.
Did you know that a Fourth of
July celebration is a "taxpayers-
funded party" that "only accom-
modates some Winter Springs
citizens"? Gee, I never thought of
it that way but if a city commis-
sioner says so, it must be true.
Heck, it's only a recognition of
the birth of our nation, a place
to meet our fellow citizens, and
a place to show our children and
grandchildren that we honor
those people that established
our freedom. But it is true that
not everyone in Winter Springs
attends it. I guess we should get
rid of it unless we can get some
corporate sponsors to fund all of
The logic of this argument has
a few holes. The biggest hole is
the "accommodates some" state-
ment. By this logic we shouldn't
fix a street such as Arrowhead
Court if it needs repair. After all, it
is in a gated community and not
all the, citizens of Winter Springs
use it or could use it. In fact,
being in a gated area of the city,
no one would know the road
needed fixing except those that
live on or near Arrowhead. It's
not like the Fourth of July cele-
bration, which gets TV and news-
paper coverage, has a live radio
broadcast, and God forbid
- people from outside of Winter
Springs in attendance.
I'm sorry that the city has
money problems, but like any
strong well-adjusted family,
when times get tough,-we need
to pull together, not run and'
hide. Community events such
as the Fourth of July celebra-
tion demonstrate our unity and
go far beyond the lame argu-
ment that "only some attend"

Here's what students
at Oviedo High School
had to say about their
choice in 'green' cars.

/ I 1I would buy a sea
foam green Prius.
They get really great
gas mileage, they are
safe and would be
good on long trips.
My sister's friend has
one and likes it.
Addison P.
17 years old

I'd buy an Explorer
SUV because you can
carry more people. If
a vehicle is fuel-effi-
cient it doesn't mat-
ter if it's small or big.
The Explorer seems
safer-the really small
cars don't seem safe.
Austin S.
17 years old

I'd buy a black
Explorer hybrid.
It is bigger, looks
better and seems
safer. I drive a 2007
Mustang and it only
gets about 18 mpg.
Carly L.
17 years old

I'd buy a Mini-Cooper
since they look good
and get pretty good
gas mileage. I'd like
to drive one. I would
never buy a Smart
Car because they
look ugly and don't
seem safe.

- Patrick C.
16 years old

My choice would be a Suburban
hybrid because it is not as small as
other hybrids. There is room to haul
things and the size would make it
Sv safer. .My neighbor has one. I drive a
truck that is not so fuel-efficient.
