Gangs lurk in

Seminole, but

pale in size

JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

A Winter Springs boy started a "gang"
because his bicycle was stolen. He told
police that his membership would pro-
tect him from getting "jumped" again.
Now the Winter Springs juvenile
faces a criminal mischief charge after
he confessed to spray-painting gang
signs on the brick wall that surrounds
the Georgetown subdivision, police
spokesman Captain Chris Deisler said.
While the two-boy gang wasn't legit-
imate, it tells a familiar story.
The leading reason why people
join gangs is for protection, said Todd
Moderson, investigator in the Gang
97 Intelligence and Suppression Unit for
the Seminole County Sheriffs Office,
who spoke at the Winter Springs
Police Department Citizen Advisory
Committee meeting on Oct. 8.
Gang activity in Winter Springs
has been on the rise during the last
Stwo years, Police Chief Dan Kerr said.
Because of this, the Sheriffs Office and
the county's seven cities developed the

THE VOICE

The Winter Springs City
Commission got its first look at
an ordinance Monday that will
allow the city to ticket red-light
runners.
Final approval of the ordi-
nance Monday, Oct. 27, will
change red-light running from a
moving violation to a code viola-
tion, enforced by a series of traf-
fic cameras mounted at six State
Road 434 intersections.
For the first 30 days of the pro-
gram, violators will receive warn-
ings. After a month, it's a $125
fine. A start date has not yet been
announced.
The cameras take streaming
video, and in order to issue a tick-
et, police must review a frame
with the car clearly behind the
intersection line with the light


red and a second frame with the
car within the intersection with
the light still red.
Drivers beware: Even those
who don't stop completely before
making a right turn will be tick-
eted.
A vendor study at Tuskawilla
Road and State Road 434 cap-
tured 22 red-light runners in a
four-hour period; 12 of those driv-
ers were turning right and failed
to stop behind the intersection's
white line, Winter Springs Police
Captain Glenn Tolleson said.
Estimates say the program will
net about $300,000 in its first year
and then see a steady decline in
revenue as drivers modify their
behaviors.
Commissioner Don Gilmore
questioned the amount of cam-
eras needed. "We're not over-kill-

Oviedo holds firm on utility bid


Says Chuluota water company

is overvaluing its facility


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


The clock is ticking since
Oviedo leaders last spoke
with Aqua Utilities of Florida
about merging water sys-
tems with Chuluota. And
meanwhile Chuluota resi-
dents can only hope for the
best after dealing with water
some described as tasting
like rotten eggs.
Three weeks ago Oviedo
drafted a letter to the
embattled water provider,
but hasn't heard back yet
about whether the two will
be able to make any prog-
ress on talks of some sort of
merger.
That letter requested
that Aqua Utilities pay for
an engineering feasibil-
ity study to determine if it
would be worthwhile to
merge systems.
The city hadn't heard
back from Aqua Utilities for


months about more formal
talks to buy the water treat-
ment plant that supplies
Chuluota with its drinking
water.
The problem, that Aqua
Utilities wants more money
than Oviedo will pay,
remains the sticking point.
"They're asking for $9-10
million for something that
would only generate a bond
referendum of $3-4 mil-
lion," Oviedo Deputy Mayor
Dominic Persampiere said.
That means the city could
only get a loan to cover the
lower value, which a bank
would justify as the worth
of the plant.
To recoup the cost, Oviedo
could charge Chuluota resi-
dents more for their water,
but is legally only allowed to
increase the rate by 25 per-
cent over what it charges its

own residents, Persampiere
said. It would take too long
to recoup the money that
Aqua Utilities is demand-
ing.
With talks stalled, in the
meantime Oviedo has tried
meeting Chuluota halfway.


"We're still trying to get
Walker Elementary as part
of our system," Persampiere
said. "But discussion of us
connecting their pipes and
wholesaling them water are
over." Walker is located in
Chuluota, but some Oviedo


students attend it, and some
of its teachers are from
Oviedo.
"It's a sha,.e because
I don't think Aqua has
done much to improve
water quality out there,"
Persampiere said.


Big political races heat up


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE :,'!. i:

With so much news of the
presidential race, it's hard
to keep an eye on the candi-
dates sparring on Seminole
County turf. Here's a recap
of the national, state and
county races encompass-
ing the Greater Oviedo and
Winter Springs areas.

Seminole County School
Board District 4 runoff
Opponent Sylvia Pond came
out ahead of incumbent
Barry Gainer in the primary,
44 percent to 38 percent,
but it wasn't enough to
claim the seat. A runoff will
be held Nov. 4.
Gaineris a small-business
owner who has been on the
board since 2004. Pond is
a longtime educator, hav-
ing spent almost 30 years
at the county's Lyman High
School.
Despite the closeness of




Early voting begins Monday,
Oct. 20, and ends Nov. 2,
with Election Day on Nov. 4.
Don't worry about digging out
that voter registration card;
Supervisor of Elections Mike
Ertel said all you need is your
driver's license.

"Who is running for office?"


the race, the two have not
met in debate, something
that has Gainer frustrated.
"I would have liked to have
some debate but my oppo-
nent has refused to show up
for them," he said.
Pond said she's chosen
not to attend certain forums
because she received word
that they were "set up"
in Gainer's favor. "It's not
because I'm afraid to debate
him; I have the issues on my
side," she said, adding that
she went to three debates
that her opponent did not
attend.
Gainer said he was in
Oregon for two debates,
which he tried fervently
to reschedule. On fixed
debates he said, "Absolutely
not."
Pond is backed
by Seminole County
Commissioner Dick Van
Der Weide, who is also on
the ballot.
Gainer said the commis-
sioner is upset with him
for supporting his oppo-
nent, Altamonte Springs
Mayor Russ Hauck, in the
Republican primary.
Gainer has raised $9,600
to Pond's $4,300.

Seminole County
Commission District 3
Incumbent Dick Van Der
Weide has an opponent
in write-in Kevin Gross, a
Longwood resident. While
the commissioner has
logged more than $100,000
in contributions, Gross has
raised nothing, according


to county Supervisor of
Elections Office data.
Write-in candidates often
do not actively fundraise
or campaign, said Aubrey
Jewett, associate chair of
the University of Central
Florida political science
department.
"What parties will do -
I don't know if it's true in
this specific case is recruit
someone to run as a write-
in mainly just because it
keeps the primary closed,"
Jewett said.
In 1998, Florida changed
its election rules so if there
is no opposition to a candi-
date in the general election,
the primary is open to all
voters, not just one party.
But a write-in candidate
meets the qualifications of
an opponent, despite hav-
ing a slim shot at winning.
It also cuts down on cam-
paign costs in a closed pri-
mary, the parties only have
to reach out to their own.
Also candidates can collect
money before the primary
and before the.general elec-
tion.
Jewett said both
Republicans and Democrats
have been known to use
this tactic. "They're basical-
ly complying with the letter
of the law but not necessar-
ily the spirit," he said.
Gross, the presumptive
candidate, did not return
calls for comment.

Florida House of
Representatives District 33
Incumbent Sandy Adams


(R-Oviedo) is being chal-
lenged by Democrat Robert
Acosta, an Orlando real
estate agent, and no-party-
affiliate Franklin Perez.
Adams was elected
in 2002 and is a former
Orange County Sheriffs
deputy. Perez is a software
engineer.
Acosta has raised $5,000
to Perez' $8,700 and Adams'
$146,000.


U.S. House of
Representatives District 24
Incumbent Tom Feeney is
challengedby'formerFlorida
Rep. Suzanne Kosmas. The
Kosmas campaign cited a
poll last week that put the
candidates neck-and-neck
in the race.
Feeney was named the
sixth most vulnerable House
incumbent by Capitol Hill
newspaper Roll Call on Oct.
7.

A needed reminder about harsh reality


By Karen McEnany-Phillips


"Many people judge our
athletic accomplishments
by counting our wins and
our losses, but to us, our
legacies are much more
personal. Our legacies are
defined by the number of
lives we are able to impact.
Winning games is impor-
tant to every coach; how-
ever, it shouldn't be our
only goal. A big part of our
job is helping to develop
solid, responsible athletes
who are able to become
upstanding citizens. When
we as coaches can teach a
group of individuals to care
about each other as much
as theydo about them-
selves, then we have truly
created a winning team."
-Joe Torre, manager of
the LosAngeles Dodgers

October is Domestic
Violence Awareness
Month, and in this time of
increasing economic fear,
relationship violence is
only expected to increase.
Seminole County leader-


ship continues to focus
on this complex problem,
acknowledging its difficult
ranking of fifth in the state
for counties with popula-
tions of 300,000 or more.
Last year the Seminole
County Sheriffs Office
received more than 2,200
calls reporting domestic
violence, averaging one call
every four hours. An esti-
mated 70 percent of inci-
dents go unreported, trans-
lating to 10,000 incidents,
or more than one call per
hour.
Nationally known public
advocate and former col-
lege football player Daryl
Fort brought a refresh-
ingly honest approach to
the subject at Seminole
County's Third Annual
Domestic Violence
Awareness luncheon Oct. 2.
Although the event's theme
was sports-oriented, Fort
avoided the typical sports
cliches that sound good
during the chicken entree
but fail to resound behind


the closed doors of our
county's local bedroom
communities.
Fort believes we must
change how society defines
a "real man" and how
the average male culture
treats men and women.
Aggression, violence,
independence, physi-
cal prowess and scorn for
anything feminine are the
messages that young boys
hear within their families,
communities and from the
media. Breaking out of the
traditionally defined box of
what it means to be a man
is the only way that Fort
predicts boys will avoid
the pathway to violence
against women and each
other.
Fort shared the story of
a woman who was sexu-
ally harassed by a stranger
while working alone at her
job and whose employer
addressed it with only
half-hearted surface con-
cern. As a result of taking
self-defense classes, she
was given a list of personal
safety tips for women.
The irony is that a
woman who was just doing
her job now had to change
her behavior. She had to be
careful of what she wore,
where she walked, what
time she left work, where
she parked, where she


went, and when she talked
on her phone. She wore
sneakers, debated whether
to take the stairs or the ele-
vator, mixed up her walk-
ing routine, and noted all
safe havens between work
and home.
This was the result of an
incident with a stranger.
Victims of domestic vio-
lence typically know their
abuser, which adds even
more fear and complexity
to the situation.
Fort's message is that the
great majority of men are
not abusers but they add
to the problem by staying
silent and complicit in not
speaking up when they
hear male friends, family
and peers downgrading
women. Comments about
"taking care of your busi-
ness at home" and belit-
tling men about having
to "check in" with their
woman all add to. the cul-
ture that looks the other
way when the male-female
relationship is demeaned.
Putting down feminine
behavior especially in
sports, i.e. "You throw like a
girl," has become so accept-
ed that boys learn early not
to cry, show emotion, show
kindness or be who they
really are. Preparing kids to
deal with challenges and
obstacles is one thing, but


being respectful of each
other is integral to the indi-
vidual's self-esteem.
Anti-violence educator
Jackson Katz defined the
problem: "Being a real man
today means you only show
the world certain parts of
yourself strong, indepen-
dent, in control, powerful,
respected, athletic, tough.
Young men know what the
culture expects of you as
a man, and if you are not,
then you are called wuss,
wimp, sissy, etcetera.
"There is a lot of pres-
sure to conform. Millions of
men are trauma survivors,
abused as children, mur-
dered and assaulted, bullied
... they do so at the expense
of their emotional lives and
psyches ... they are walking
around as victims too, so
it is not only women who
suffer."

There are eight known

Preservation Project is
hosting its Third Annual
Cemetery Tour from 6:30
to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct.
21. It is free to attend -
though a $2 donation
would be greatly appreci-
ated, if you're able so


stop by the cemetery across

crowd. You'll learn a lot
about Oviedo history and
you'll get to see some peo-
ple you likely know playing
the roles of Oviedo's found-
ers.
The Pumpkin Patch
is open! The First United
Methodist Church has set
up the annual pumpkin
patch on 8010 Red Bug
Road between Dovera
Drive and Oviedo Crossing
Terrace right next door

from Lowe's. They have
that special pumpkin wait-
ing for you. Also there will
be storytelling, crafts and
pumpkin carving. Monies
benefit mission trips for the
youth group.
Coming soon and a
first for Oviedo is King's
Manor Tea Room, 322 King
St. It's a charming place
to have that special lunch
or celebrate an important
occasion with close friends.
The tearoom's hours and
days of operation will be
Wednesday, Thursday and
Friday 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

25, a Halloween parade
and pumpkin carving con-
test all at Boston Hill Park,
77 S. Central Ave., Oviedo.
Admission is free.
People young and old
in our fair city loved to
jog, run and walk in their
neighborhoods and it is
only fair that we do our
physical exercise on the
street for biking, jogging


and running, but leave the
sidewalk for others who
definitely are not of the
younger set. The dictionary
says that "a sidewalk is for
pedestrian." So let's abide
by that rule so that travel is
safe for all who enjoy exer-
cise.
Remember to vote on
Nov. 4!
Great Day in the
Country, an arts and crafts
festival presented by the
Oviedo Woman's Club; is
right around the corner
on Saturday, Nov. 8, at the
Lawton Elementary School
Grounds. Hope to see you
there.

CAMERAS I It's about safety; money doesn't hurt

ing this thing are we?" he
asked.
Tolleson assured him the
cameras are not tied to rev-
enue. "It is a safety tool for
the city," he said.
But cameras may help
one safety problem and
contribute to another.
The U.S. Department
of Transportation Federal
Highway Administration
research shows that traf-
fic cameras decrease right-
angle, or "T-bone," crashes
but increase rear-end crash-
es.
A study done by the agen-
cy in 2005, which surveyed
132 intersections using the
cameras, saw a 25 percent
decrease in angled crashes
and a 16 percent decrease
in related injuries. But the
study saw a 15 percent


increase in rear-end crashes
and a 24 percent increase in
related injuries.
But the results didn't
completely cancel each
other out. Each intersec-
tion still saved $39,000 to
$50,000 each year in hospi-
tal bills, property damage to
vehicles, insurance expens-
es, value of lost quality of
life, and other costs, accord-
ing to the study.
That's not to mention the
added revenue the munic-
ipalities see. Out of the
$125 ticket, Winter Springs
gets $85 and the vendor,
American Traffic Solutions,
gets the rest.
That extra chunk of
money in city coffers is a
bonus, Commission candi-
dates Bill Poe, Jean Hovey
and Gary Bonner agree.
"We need revenue, that's
a good thing," said Bonner,

Habitat donated $10,000 from
'Indiana Jones' night
The Rotary Club of Oviedo presented Habitat
for Humanity of Seminole County with a
$10,000 donation on Wednesday in support of
Habitat's mission to build simple, decent and
affordable homes for Seminole County's low-
income people in need, and to provide such
persons with support services that promote
their successful home purchase and owner-
ship.
The donated funds are a part of those
raised by the Rotary Club of Oviedo's Movie
Blockbuster Event held on May 22, which
featured "Indiana Jones and Kingdom of
the Crystal Skull," and of which Habitat for
Humanity of Seminole County was the named
principal charity.

"It's an issue of safety,
pure and simple," Poe said.
"But we can also look at it-
as economic means."
"If it saves one life, I think
it's worth it," Hovey, Poe's
opponent, said. "If it brings
in additional funds that's all
the more better."

BE ON THE LOOKOUT!
Crime, arrests and

public safety news from
S the Oviedo Police Department

By Lt. George Ilemsky


Lorenzo Lane a dead-end
street where the suspect
ran from the vehicle, leav-
ing his girlfriend in the
vehicle. The incident turned
out to be a "till tap" wherein
the suspect grabbed money
from the cash register while
the store clerk was distract-
ed.

Stolen vehicle recovered
On Oct. 7, an officer stopped
a bicycle for not having a
headlight. The bike stopped
in a driveway. As the officer
was dealing with the bike,
a subject exited a vehicle
parked in the driveway and
walked toward the rear of
the residence. The officer did
not recognize the subject as
living at the residence and
the subject would not fol-
low the officer's directions
to stop, instead disappear-
ing behind the residence.
The vehicle smelled of burnt
marijuana. A check revealed
the vehicle had been stolen
out of Orange County. The
victim of the stolen vehicle
reported the windows of
the vehicle had been dark-
tinted after the time it was
stolen.

Other activities
On Oct. 11, a witness saw
three young juveniles act-
ing suspicious while look-
ing in a neighbor's car. The
witness yelled at the juve-


niles and they fled in a
vehicle. When the vehicle
was stopped the driver was
found to be a juvenile -
with a prior history of auto
burglary driving without
a driver's license. The driv-
er was arrested for driving
without a driver's license.
On Oct. 12, an officer
saw a vehicle, driving at
about 90 mph, run the red
light at Mitchell Hammock
Road and Alafaya Woods
Boulevard and almost hit
another vehicle. The speed-
ing vehicle was later seen
turning around in a drive-


way on Pinehurst Court.
The officer pulled in front
of the vehicle and ordered
the driver out. When the
driver got out of the vehicle
he was seen to have a knife
in his waistband. The driver
was arrested for DUI and
issued citations for DUI,
speed, reckless driving, and
running a red light. The
driver was also chargedwith
possession of New Legend
Drugs without a prescrip-
tion.

.THIS WEEK in human history

Singer-songwriter Paul Simon was born on this day in Newark,
N.J. Simon grew up in Forest Hills, N.Y., where he befriended
Art Garfunkel in the sixth grade. The two began singing together,
and by the time they were 16 they had released a single, "Hey,
SIN T ET Schoolgirl," recording as Tom and Jerry.




Formalwear for wonder years


AMY K.D. TOBIK
THE VOICE


A s soon as the two young
girls stepped inside the
door, they were instantly
drawn to the shimmer and
sequins of the elegant gowns
on display. They couldn't
help but carefully touch
the fabrics one by one, and
as they spotted the stylish
dressing room, they giggled
as they discussed trying the
garments on.
"It's all about the experi-
ence," said Jennifer Howe
Rogan, co-owner of So
Sweet Boutique, a recently
relocated children's formal
wear store in Casselberry.
"It's about setting up an en-
vironment where children
can make good choices, and
it's about them and their
special day."
Rogan and business part-
ner Susan Powers pride
themselves in helping chil-
dren choose just the right
style, color and fit to make
them feel good about them-
selves. Large wall mirrors,
fancy dressing rooms and
a chic chandelier


make any customer
feel like the center
of attention.
"Kids don't for-
get the experience,"
Rogan said.
The two-tone
pink walls at the
new location are
accented by black
stripes and give
the more than
2,000-square-foot
store a glamorous
feel, making cus-
tomers sense they
are part ofamagnif-
icent celebration.
Countless trendy
dresses neatly hang
on racks and along
the walls, next to


tele.
The team decided to
make changes in
their collection ,
when frequent
customers began re-
questing prom dresses.
"When you get involved
in the industry, you fall in
love with it and want to
grow with your child re n
as well," Rogan said.
While Rogan admi ts

front in Oviedo, her
hometown, she said
the new location is
more convenient
for the steady cus-
tomers who travel
from Orlando,
Winter Park, Mai-
tland and Kis-
simmee. "With
the economy and
gas prices, this location was
easier for our customers to
get to," Rogan said.

day dresses and outfits from
infant sizes through teens.

So Sweet Boutique, which just moved to Casselberry from Oviedo, offers formal clothes for children. It's co-owned by Jennifer
Howe Rogan, left, and Susan Powers, center. Jamie DeRouchie, at right, manages the store. The boutique moved so it could have
more space and also to bring it closer to most of its customers.


able and often proves more
cost effective for older boys,
Rogan explained, because
they often want the more
expensive brand names.
Leighann Barna said she
returns to So Sweet Bou-
tique every year to select a
holiday dress for her 9-year-
old daughter, Kaitlyn. "The
clothes are beautiful and re-
ally good quality," she said.
"They are always so nice and
give your child way more at-
tention than a department
store."
Barna said she especially
likes that someone always
greets themwhen theycome
in. "They help you find what
you need, even if it means
going through catalogs to
order it," she said.
In an effort to make for-


mal dressing and accessoriz-
ing more affordable, Ro-
gan and Powers go to great
lengths to offer less expen-
sive.options. With 10 differ-
ent children's formal wear
manufacturers, So Sweet
Boutique can offer a variety
of dresses and styles by pre-
ferred manufacturers such
as Dimples Apparel, Bijan
Kids and Tiffany Designs.
"Some of the labels are
pricey because a lot of mon-
eywas spent in marketing so
the kids know them more,"
Rogan said.
"We offer those and they
are fabulously made. We try
not to buy anything that
doesn't have at least a par-
tial lining or a petticoat,"
she said.
"There are other manu-


facturers who are not very
well-known that are in the
garment districts out in LA.
and New York, and they are
half the price. It's not that
the dress is any cheaper, they
just didn't spend the money
on marketing and go to the
shows," Rogan said.
"I know how hard it is
to shop with children. I en-
joy knowing that each little
girl or boy feels confident,
and that we are able to help
Mom or Dad find affordable
formal wear for kids," she
said.
"Kids are a lot more com-
plicated than people real-
ize," Rogan said. "They have
opinions too. We want to
make sure they feel awe-
some."

Nearby Halloween thrills


AMY K.D. TOBIK
THE VOICE

- maginations soar on
Halloween as nightfall
stirs frightening visions of
witches, devils and ghosts,
harkening to thousands of
years of Celtic history.
Out of a fear of the
unknown and the long,
dark winter that soon
approached, the Celtics
created somewhat terrify-
ing rituals surrounding the
night. Oct. 31 marked the
end of their harvest and
possibly their food supply,
threatening their liveli-
hood. It was believed the
dead returned to roam the
earth in darkness.
As Christianity spread to
the Celtics by the seventh
century, Pope Boniface IV
designated Nov. 1 as All
Saints' Day, a time to honor
saints and martyrs. Later,
the church named Nov. 2 as
All Souls' Day to commemo-
rate the dead.
As beliefs and customs
have evolved over time,
the traditions related to
Halloween have taken
on a more lightheart-
ed approach. As a result,
Halloween has become the
second-most commercially
popular and celebrated hol-
iday during the year, with a
combination of town-spon-
sored events, neighborhood
parades and parties. More
than 1 billion pounds of
pumpkins were produced
last year for the holiday,
according to the USDA, at a
value of $117 million.
As the night ofAllhallows

Knights


just short


in Miami
ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Against longtime football
power Miami Hurricanes,
the UCF Knights found
themselves falling just a
touchdown short of a win
Saturday, in a 20-14 loss.
The two teams have never
met, but that didn't keep the
crowd from creating some
rivalry-like moments from
the bleachers, eliciting an
obscene gesture from UCF
players on the sidelines that
nearly led to suspensions.
The score tightened
near the end. With the win-
ning drive in their ,hands
to complete, the Knightsg
(2-4) once again were felled
by lackluster passing, with
freshman quarterback Rob
Calabrese turning the ball
over on downs after the
team had marched to the
Miami 36-yard line.
Once again kick-return-
er and defensive back Joe
Burnett proved the Knights'
most electrifying player,
leading a comeback for.
the Knights with five min-
utes left by returning a ball
91 yards for a touchdown.
Defensive back Johnell Neal
also grabbed a solo touch-
down, racing 62 yards on
an interception. The two
defensemen, combined
with kicker Daren Daly's
two extra points, would
give the Knights their only
scores.
Burnett and Neal also
managed to gain more than
twice as many yards as their
own offense. They couldn't
save the Knights on their
own, though. The Knights'
offense would only gain 78
total yards.
The Knights have the
weekend off then they
travel to Tulsa. The Golden
Hurricane has dominated
the conference this season,
with a 6-0 overall record.






Next Game:
vs. Tulsa Golden Hurricane
WHEN: 8 p.m.
Sunday, Oct 26.

WHERE: Tulsa, Okla.

The game will be broadcast
live on ESPN. Tulsa is favored.


Huskies up, Lions down


PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICE
Oviedo's offense couldn't compete with dominant Seminole High School on Friday; the Lions fell 48-8.


ISAAC BABCOCK
* THE VOICE
The Hagerty Huskies have
done it again, earning
their second-ever varsity
football win last Friday,
Oct. 10, this time against
Lyman with a 27-8 margin.
The boys in blue were once
again propelled by quarter-
back Jeff Driskel, who used
speed on the ground and
in the air to shock Lyman,
which was shut out in the
first three quarters.
The scoring started
Early and in earnest for
the Huskies, with kickoff
returned Caleb Amon rac-
ing 75 yards past Lyman's
special teams defense to
score the first touchdown.
After that, it was the
Jeff Driskel Show, with a
31-yard passing play giving
the Huskies their second
touchdown, and a run at
the goal line from Driskel
giving them their third.
Driskel showed the
Greyhounds his taillights
near the end of the second


half, with a 99-yard riun to
the end zone to ratchet the
score up to 27-0, well out of
reach of a late comeback.
The Huskies (2-3) will
host Edgewater at 7:30 p.m.
Friday. The Eagles (1-4) are
struggling this season after
high hopes propelled them
early on.
Oviedo's air game never
left the runway Friday night,
as they fell to Seminole
High School 48-8. It was the
biggest loss of the season
for the Lions, who fell to
2-4. Seminole rose to 4-2 in
their district debut.
The Seminoles took no
time to get started, scor-
ing on four straight posses-
sions to ratchet the score
up to 28-8 by the end of the
first half.
Blake Bortles' typically
stellar passing game only
briefly showed itself on the
field, as he connected with
favored receiver Collin
Christmas sporadically and
finished the game with only
87 yards.


Christmas proved the
Lions' best weapon in the
game, bursting through the
line 19 times to gain 168
yards and a touchdown.
The Lions host' Lake
Brantley at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The Patriots have been on a
four-game winning streak
to bring their record to 4-2.
The Lake Howell Silver
Hawks were handed their
sixth straight loss and their
biggest blowout of the sea-
son against the Mainland
Buccaneers on Friday, fall-
ing 47-8.
Six of the Bucs' seven
touchdowns came in the
first half of the game, as
they rampaged over,
through and around the
Lake Howell defense.
The Silver Hawks' offense
failed to score for the third
time this season. In six
games the Hawks have been
outscored 213-30.
They host Lake Mary
(2-3) at 7:30 p.m. Friday.
The Rams are coming off a
24-0 loss to Lake Brantley.

Hagerty Huskies Sports Review


COMPILED BY JAY GETTY
HAGERTY HIGH &. HO'IL

Football -
Win over Greyhounds provides
second victory of the year
For the second time this year, the
Huskies raced away to an early lead
and an impressive victory over an SAC
opponent. Hagerty scored 27 consec-
utive points before giving up a fourth-
quarter score to the Greyhounds. The
27-8 final score was more than a con-
ference win it was an all-important
district victory that improved their
overall record to 2-3.
Caleb Amon set the tone early
with an 85-yard return of the opening
kickoff for a touchdown. In the sec-
ond quarter, the Huskies added three
scores by the offensive unit. Two of
the scores were the result of quarter-
back Jeff Driskel runs, one for 1 yard
and another that went for 99 yards.
The other score came on a Driskel to
Tyler Thrift 31-yard pass play.
The defense turned in their best


performance of the year by shutting
out Lyman until the midway point of
the fourth quarter. The group also
limited their ground game to a 7-yard
negative in the rushing category. The
defense recorded six sacks on the
night with Brandon Ausburn earning
two of those stops for a loss.
The team will play this Friday at
home in a Gierke vs. Gierke event as
the Edgewater Eagles come to town.
Game time is set for 7:30 p.m.

Cross Country -
Compher finishes first
at the Hagerty Invitational
With 2008 Beijing Olympian and
Oviedo resident Jennifer Barringer on
site for the 2nd Annual Hagerty Cross
Country Invitational at SCC-Oviedo,
the Husky cross country teams fin-
ished second and third in the.18-team
fields. The girls were led by meet
champion Shannon Compher's 19:55
clocking on the wet and muddy
course. Compher paced the.group to
a second-place team finish. Following


Compher and completing the team
score for the girls were Ashley
Seymour (21:02), Shannon Dunne
(21:57), Amy Ankli (22:18), and Sarah
Ankli (22:23). The men were led by
Sean Mendes's seventh-place finish
in a time of 17:29. Mendes combined
with Peter Licari (17:41), Kyle Burton
(17:43), Alex Ruedas (18:02), and
Colin Tardrew (18:57) to establish a
third-place team finish.

Volleyball -
Teams donate $10,000
at Volley for the Cure
In the first ever "Volley for the Cure"
event held at HHS, the Huskies faced
off with the Winter Springs Bears to
play more than just a volleyball game.
.The event between the two schools
generated over $10,000 for the Susan
G. Komen For the Cure Foundation.
The foundation supportsbreast can-
cer victims both locally and nation-
wide. Despite a three-game loss to
the Bears, both teams were winners
in the fight against breast cancer.

THIS WEEK in i history

VO IC g An essay appears in the Gazette of the United States in which a
writer named "Phocion" attacks presidential candidate Thomas
Jefferson and accuses Jefferson of carrying on an affair with one
of his slaves. Phocion turned out to be former Treasury Secretary
V OCE Alexander Hamilton.


EMPLOYMENT

Ask

Sandi a


It's not what


you know .o
This week I went to a meeting and
the subject was social network-
ing. I know it is popular because
I keep getting requests to join all
different networks from Twitter,
MySpace and Plaxo to LinkedIn
and Facebook.
I usually spend my time warn-
ing about what not to put on these
sites when you are job seeking.
There's plenty you can do, though.
I love Facebook. It is fun and
easy. I have made connections
with old high school friends and
my family all over the world. It
also connects me with former co-
workers whom I don't see often.
I finally gave in and joined
LinkedIn when I kept getting
requests to join. LinkedIn is a great
resource and network for profes-
sionals where you can get recom-
mendations from your peers and
connections. You can also ask for
introductions to new connections.
Many times networking is the
way to get a job. I read that a sur-
vey was done several years ago that
indicated that your "weak-tie" net-
works were more likely to connect
you with job opportunities than
your "strong-tie" networks. With
this in mind, social networking is a
definite must do!
Best wishes.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR


Iraq war's link
to financial mess
The final blow, the last nail in
the coffin, the double whammy
to the John McCain presidential
campaign will be the revelation
that our financial disaster was the
result of the Bush team's with
McCain's support ill-conceived
and ill-executed Iraq disaster. It's
a matter of time before someone
connects these two dots. You
could be the first. Of course nomi-
nee Barack Obama risks being
accused as a contributor because
he first supported the war, but it
may be worth it if McCain gets a
larger share of the blame.

Vote no on Amendment 4
to avoid a tax shortfall
Conservation easements are good,
let's get that out straight. They
assist in preserving pristine land
across Florida for future genera-
tions. However, Amendment 4 is
much more than preserving land
and preventing development.
First, it could very well allow
all land owners holding an "agri-
cultural assessment" or other
currently non-developed prop-


'6


i I


erty designation to declare a "per-
manent conservation easement,"
whether the land was even devel-
opable or not! Declaring a conser-
vation easement means they will
not pay any property taxes and
other local taxpayers will have to
make up the shortfall! Some oppo-
nents indicate this is not good
politics to not support the basic
infrastructure of their county.
Secondly, although the amend-
ment is leaving it up to the Florida
Legislature to define "conserva-
tion," in recent years all attempts
to redefine what constitutes an
agricultural assessment have been
soundly defeated in favor of the
agricultural and development
interests, much to the detriment
of regular homeowners. We need
a better amendment to know who
will qualify and the resulting costs
to each county!
Third, since the Florida
Taxation and Reform Commission
did not perform a standard Staff
Financial Impact Analysis, taxpay-
ers and, most especially, county
appraisal offices statewide, have
absolutely no idea how this reduc-
tion in taxes will affect their coun-
ty's operating budgets.
Personally, I was able to make

a baseline estimate of a $4 million
impact to Leon County where I
live, should all 1,800 current prop-
erties designated as agricultural.
take the "permanent" exemption.
This amount, however, does not
include the many other properties
that could possibly take the "non-
permanent" exemption, again,
lowering a county's tax base even
further!
Georgia is also attempting to
create conservation easements,
however their plan is to also guar-
antee each county a maximum
reduction in taxes! Amendment 4
does not offer any similar assur-
ances to Florida counties. Due to
the dire economic situation in
Florida, this may not even be fea-
sible.
Although Amendment 4 has
good intentions of preserving pris-
tine land, it does not give assur-
ance that taxpayers will not have
a huge shortfall in basic county
operating budgets starting in
2010. Therefore, please vote no on
Amendment 4 and encourage the
amendment be re-written.

I've never been on a

like to go into space

It would be fun to go
into space with other

think the space suit
would be heavy.

Riding into space
would be a good
experience, to see
what is there. I'd like
