Fond farewell for the chief

THE VOICE
Winter Springs Police Chief
Dan Kerr took his place at
the podium and surveyed
the sprawling audience.
About half of the 150
people were law enforce-
ment officers from Orange .
and Seminole counties, -
some as far away as Osceola
County.
Tables upon tables of
city officials, residents and
members of his department .
smiled up at him. Even his
own dentist and the den-,
tist's staff had come to the
Tuscawilla Country Club on
this Friday afternoon to say
goodbye to the man who
many say revitalized the
90 city's police department.
After almost 12 years as

Hundreds of veterans, their families and friends
watched silently as the American flag rose
slowly into the night sky, illuminated by a
nearly full moon.
When it reached the top of the pole, the
attendees cheered. The Winter Springs Veterans
Memorial was finally complete.
The 1,800-square-foot monument located
on Blumberg Boulevard in the Town Center
was dedicated Tuesday, Veterans Day, to "those
who have given all."
Juanita Blumberg, whose family is the
namesake of the road, thanked the donors
who made the memorial possible. Juanita lost
her husband, Lewis, a decorated World War II
veteran, five years ago. "I know what tonight
would mean to him," she said, "and my heart
is full."


The monument was an effort of Winter
Springs, the Rotary Club, Waste Pro and archi-
tect William Starmer, who alone donated about
$10,000 in construction costs.
After attendees sang along to a live rendi-
tion of "God bless America," the memorial's
circle of concrete columns topped with eagle
statues was bathed in light. Its center revealed
a reflecting pond with a "battlefield cross" a
combat helmet balanced on a rifle that pierces
the Earth.
A map etched in stone flooring is featured
in an adjacent circular space, surrounded by
plaques engraved with the names of both local
fallen and veteran soldiers and current persons
serving in the Iraq war.
As two Palm Tree mobile digital billboard
trucks scrolled the names of local veterans,
some family members ran up to snap a photo
of loved ones' names.

Lions raise curtain for 'Othello'


Oviedo High School students put

local twist on Shakespeare

AMY K.D. TOBIK
THE VOICE


Othello's marriage to
Desdemona is seriously in
danger. The Oviedo High
School cheerleader has
been spotted in a cafe with
Cassio, a, recent .transfer
from Lake Brantley. Hearts
and lives are on the line as
they try to work through
the passion, jealousy and
rage that ensue.
"The Tragedy of Othello:
Moor of Oviedo," an
adaptation of William
Shakespeare's classic play,
will be presented this
month by the Oviedo High
School Theatre Department.
Juniors Pearson Bolt,
Amanda Eifert and Claire
Shackleford spent this past
summer cleverly modern-
izing the tragedy under the
supervision of OHS drama


teacher Jennifer Devine.
The storyline paral-
lels much of Shakespeare's
original early 17th century
tragedy, with an unusual
contemporary and local
twist. In the production, the
Oviedo High School football
co-captain, Othello, marries
his high school sweetheart,
Desdemona. A tangled web
is weaved when Cassio, a
Lake Brantley player, trans-
fers to Oviedo and is named
co-captain, a position
another student named
lago believed he deserved.
In revenge, lago convinces
Othello that Desdemona
cheated on him with Cassio,
thus destroying both their
lives.
The writers of the adap-
tation skillfully maintained


the Elizabethan style indic-
ative of Shakespeare while
including local references,
such as Hagerty and Winter
Springs high schools.
Students will be dressed in
modern clothing, such as
workout gear and football
and cheerleading uniforms,
a striking contrast to the
language.
Senior David Mila admit-
ted to being hesitant to audi-
tion for the tragedy at first
because of the complexity
of the play, but then rose to
the challenge. Speaking in
the rhythm of his charac-
ter, Othello, was difficult at
first, but he said he adapted
quickly. "You really have to
understand it or the audi-
ence will not understand
it," he said. "It's by far the
hardest role I have had."
Junior Kelsey Renfrow,
who will be playing
Desdemona, said she was
thrilled to join the cast since
she has always had a passion
for Shakespeare. Renfrow
said she anticipates the
audience will appreciate the


combination of humor and
tragedy. "It's an extremely
amazing play," she said.
"Shakespeare is the most
brilliant playwright ever,"
said Assistant Stage Manager
Chris Clark, a junior at the
school. "This adaptation
has made it more modern
and understandable." Clark
said he hopes the audience
will recognize the symbol-
ism when they see the set
designs, also made by stu-
dents. Othello will be-rep-
resented by passionate and
fiery colors, he explained,
while Desdemona will be
represented by cool, calm
colors, similar to her per-
sonality.
Devine said she believes
the audience will be
impressed by the contempo-
rary adaptation, which has
been a challenge to master at
times, the Elizabethan lan-
guage in particular. "There
has been a lot of pressure
to learn lines," Devine said.
"But I am so proud they are
taking a serious approach
to this."

Mall's owner warns of debt load


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE .

The owner of the. Oviedo
Marketplace is swimming in debt
and has warned of impending
bankruptcy.
A filing with the U.S. Securities
and Exchange Commission,
General Growth Properties states
that the "continued weakness
of the retail and credit markets"
makes it uncertain that they can
get extensions or refinance their
current $958 million debt.
If they can't, it will be neces-
sary to take steps toward paying
coming-due debt, "including seek-
ing legal protection from our credi-
tors."
"Our potential inability to
address our 2008 or. 2009 debt
maturities in a satisfactory fash-
ion," the filing reads, "raises sub-
stantial doubts as to our ability to
continue as a'going concern."
Nicole Spreck, director of pub-
lic affairs for General Growth
Properties, said it is a company pol-
icy not to comment on SEC filings
but e-mailed the following state-


ment:
"We continue working with
our advisors to develop a compre-
hensive, strategic plan to generate
capital ... regardless of our situa-
tion, our properties and company
will continue to operate, remain
vibrant and look forward to a pros-
perous holiday season."
General Growth also owns the
Altamonte Mall, the Festival Bay
Mall at International Drive, and
West Oaks mall in Ocoee, along
with 11 other centers across Florida
and 200 nationwide-.
Chris Molho, General Growth
Properties' assistant general man-
ager of the Oviedo Marketplace,
said Wednesday that mall man-
agement hadn't been contacted
by corporate about the filing. "All
*i know is there's a. possibility (of
bankruptcy)," he said. "You know
as much as I do."
There are several forms of bank-
ruptcy. While Chapter 7 usually
leads to liquidation, Chapter 11
protection allows a company to
reorganize or rehabilitate without
closing down, freeing it from credi-
tors' lawsuits.


The Oviedo-Winter Springs
Chamber of Commerce plans to
contact the mall management
through Oviedo's Economic
Development Committee to get
an update of what's going on,
Chamber Executive Director Cory
Skeates said.
"Because it is a corporate deci-
sion, I'm not surprised they haven't
heard on the local level," Skeates
said of the Marketplace.
General Growth Properties
acquired Rouse Company in
2004, the former owner of the
Marketplace. The Seminole County
Property Appraiser site lists Rouse
as the owner of the property, "care
of" General Growth. A spokeswom-
an said General Growth paid the
2007 taxes on the property.
In the acquisition of Rouse
and other properties nationwide,
the Chicago-based company also
bought the properties' debts,
Skeates said.
"They said, 'If you buy our stuff
you also have to take our debt,'" he
said. "Now that debt has started to
come due."
The debt is scheduled to mature


Dec. 1 unless it is refinanced or
the deadline extended, the filing
states.
"With the economy doing what
it's doing," Skeates said, "that debt
has caught up to them."
If the company does seek
Chapter 11 protection, it shouldn't
have an immediate effect on mall
tenants, mostly small businesses
and franchisees, within the Oviedo
Marketplace.
"Generally it wouldn't make a
whole lot of difference for them,"
said Robert Goetz, certified business
analyst and manager of the Small
Business Development- Center at
Seminole Community College.
"They will still have their rent due
... it's going to be a minimal effect
that they'll see."
He said he's been urging strug-
gling businesses to renegotiate their
rents -if a landlord is not delivering
the promised foot traffic.
As for the news of General
Growth on the edge of bankruptcy,
he wasn't shocked. "It's no surprise
seeing retail where it is and credit
where it's not."


VETERANS I Manager decries war at


< continued from the front page

A sea of amber dots
danced side-to-side in the
audience during the eve-
ning's .candlelight ceremo-
ny, put to music by bagpipes,
drums and a bugle.
After fireworks lit up
the sky, the attendees
moved toward the memo-
rial. Many huddled around
the engraved plaques, trac-
ing their fingers along the
names, just as City Manager
Ron McLemore had told
them to do.
During the dedica-
tion ceremony, McLemore
recounted a time that he
traveled to Washington,
D.C., and visited its Veterans
Memorial, after his best
friend became among the
first 100 Americans to fall in
the Vietnam War.
"The 100 or so people at
the wall were all laying their
fingers on it, brushing them
across the letters," he said.
"I watched for a minute and
did the same thing.
"The burden that was lift-
ed off me can't be explained;
it's just something you have
to go through."

CHARITY I Bin built, donated by Boy Scouts deemed a fire hazard


< continued from the front page
but tell them how to do
it," Councilman Dominic
Persampiere said about
helping the store fix its
issues.
Problems started when
code enforcement noticed
piles of donations stacking
up in front of the store and
narrowing walkways inside
it.
"We put a sign that said
no dumping, but people


dump their garbage there
too," owner Krissy Todd
said. "We've had to do gar-
bage dump runs every day
to keep up. We can only
move so fast."
Adding insult to injury,
a donation bin in front of
the store that was built by a
local Boy Scouts troop was
deemed a fire hazard by the
fire department.
The city had a meet-
ing with the store to try to
resolve issues, but prob-


lems came back shortly
afterward, according to
Development Services
Director Bryan Cobb.
"We met with them and
went over their entire site,"
he said. "We' came to the
conclusion that we could
let them stay as they were,
but that they had to move
[the donation bin]."
"It stayed there roughly
three or four days, and then
it was moved back," he said.
"We're basically back to


square one."
Todd said issues with
vandalism have complicat-
ed the situation.
"They asked me to move
[the donation bin], but then
it was in the dark and some-
one urinated and defecat-
ed in it," Todd said. "Then I
tried to get a light over it to
stop that from happening
but we already got a $100
fine."
The city may be forced
to fine the-store if it doesn't


comply, but Cobb said the
city is trying its best to avoid
those types of consequenc-
es.
"We're trying to work
with them," Cobb said. "We
really are."
Todd is hoping to meet
with the City Council soon
to show them her attempts
to resolve the issues.
"I want to show them
what we're doing," she said.
"If they just see it, then
they'll know we're trying."

Celebrate. Remember. Fight back.


, By Karen McEnany-Phillips


It's still a few weeks before
we finalize our New Year's
Resolutions but some-
how a few days before
Thanksgiving seems a per-
fect time to think about
doing something that
makes a real difference. A
perfect time to consider
being part of a team, to
reach out to people in
your own community, to
make a positive difference:
within yourself and to help
a worthy cause. Relay For
Life is the American Cancer
Society's signature activ-
ity program where teams
of people gather at a park,
high school or fairground
and a member from each
team is continuously repre-
sented on a track for up to
18 hours. We have our own
local Relay for Life orga-
nization from the Geneva
and Chuluota area and your
participation would be
most welcome!


Seventeen teams are
currently in place and we
still have six months to
go imagine what we
will have by then. A team
can be 10-15 people and
it can be friends, family,
colleagues anyone you
can recruit is welcome. The
theme for this year is "Relay
the Country Way" which
of course is perfect for our
rural area. Between now
and May teams will con-
tinue to form and conduct
fundraising activities, all
leading up to the overnight
event in May.
Monthly committee
meetings and team meet-.
ings are already scheduled
to share ideas and plan
activities, and are held
at the Geneva Methodist
Church. It will culminate
next May 15-16 which
involves several events, the
centerpiece being the 15 to
18 hours when a member


from each team will be
represented on the track
for a specified period of
time through the night,
symbolic of the fact that
cancer never sleeps.
The local event will be
held at the Forestry Center
in the Little Big Econ
Forest area (off Snowhill
Road) and will include
country music, line danc-
ing, a reception for survi-
vors and care-givers, lots of
food and more. There will
be a symbolic lap for the
survivors and a beautiful
luminary ceremony hon-
oring survivors and those
who have lost their battle.
This is not an athletic event
and not a race.
There are 35 relays in
the greater Orlando area
and currently the Geneva-
Chuluota Relay group has
the most teams. Twenty-five
cancer survivors are already
involved in the upcom-
ing event. Teams have
been formed from UCF,
the Geneva Homemakers,
FHA, Boy Scouts, and many
more. Bake Sales, rummage
sales, car washes and more
have already been planned
-with partial proceeds going
to the Relay. Additional
fundraising activities are


being planned including
golf, equestrian and kayak-
ing events. If you want to
join a team, start a team,
help fundraise, or donate,
there is a role you can play.
One in three people will
be diagnosed in their life-
time. We all know someone
we've lost to cancer or who
has or is battling it.
Geneva residents were
fortunate to listen to
Anita Zabek, one of the
representatives for the
Geneva-Chuluota group,
at the Geneva Citizens
Association meeting on-
Nov. 3. Anita became
involved with Relay for
Life last year when her best
friend was diagnosed with
cancer. She shared that
85 percent of the money
raised goes to education,
advocacy and research.
Zabek is also seeking some-
one to co-chair an advo-
cacy committee working
toward the goal of raising
the Florida state tax on
cigarettes. Zabek needs
involvement on all levels:,
volunteers, donations, team
leaders, team members,
local business involvement,
pre-event fundraising ideas,
and additional activities for
the May event.


The Relay for Life Web
site has blueprints and
templates for action at all
levels it has been a proud
working model for the past
25 years. As the Web site
states: One Day. One Night.
One Community. It is about
Celebration, Remembrance
and Hope. You honor can-
cer survivors, pay tribute
to the lives we've lost, and
raise money to help fight it
right here in our commu-
nity.

CHIEF I Tearful goodbyes for longtime top cop


< continued from the front page

had their own story, their
own thanks for the city's
top cop. After kind, some-
times tearful words from
about 20 of them, it was
Kerr's turn to speak.
"I'm deeply humbled by
you all coming here," he
said. "It means a great deal
to me."
After thanking the
police department, the
city and the citizen's advi-
sory board, he paused poi-
gnrantly, caught in the emo-
tion of the moment, before
he began to speak again.
He promised not to "be a
stranger" once he is gone.
Many say that when Kerr
joined the city more than
a decade ago, the police
department was in sham-
bles. Captain Chris Deisler
said people working for the
department lacked direc-
tion, and some were con-
sidering leaving altogether.
"Your coming here did


so much more for us than
I think you realize ... now
I'm happy to say that I
belong here," he said of the
department's high morale.
Ellen Simpson, Kerr's
executive assistant, said
she is also proud of the
department. "You have
tightened all the links in
our department chains -
none missing, none loose,"
she said. "It is with deep
regret that we open the
doors and let you go," she
said, pausing to fight back
tears. "However, we know
people such as yourself are
needed everywhere and
have to be shared."
That feeling of mixed
emotions coursed through
the. hall as one after anoth-
er speaker expressed what
it is they love about Kerr.
City Manager Ron
McLemore said that when
he first met Kerr, he knew
he was "the guy." "I thought,
'He's not saying these words
to impress me, he really
believes this,'" McLemore


said of Kerr's vision.
Mayor John Bush said
whenever he meets a law
enforcement officer from
another city, he or she is
sure to praise the chief and
the department. "The team
he has built is unbeliev-
able," Commissioner Rick
Brown echoed.
Commissioner Don
Gilmore said Kerr has not
only earned the respect of
the community, but that of
the "bad guys" the reason
why they aren't in Winter
Springs.
"He's brought the police
department into the 21st

Ethics probe



clears Brown


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

The Florida Commission
on Ethics cleared Winter
Springs Commissioner Rick
Brown Oct. 17 of an eth-
ics complaint filed by for-
mer Commissioner Edward
Martinez Jr.
Martinez's claim alleged
that Brown voted favor-
ably on issues relating to
businessman Bart Phillips
because Phillips contrib-


uted to his election cam-
paign.
"While the allegations do
indicate that the respon-
dent .has used his position
in a way that has benefited
Mr. Phillips, the element of
corrupt intent is lacking,"
states the order dismissing
the complaint .as "legally
insufficient." That Brown
worked with Phillips to pro-
mote candidates, policies
and actions inheress in the
democratic process."

'Great Day' lives up to its name


It truly was a Great Day
on Saturday, Nov. 8, for
the Oviedo Woman's Club
event. The crowd was
amazing, the weather was
suburb, and the entire
festival went smoothly as
reported by all the hard-
working ladies in the club.
This year and as in the
past, we (the club mem-
bers) would like to thank
all the people who helped
make our festival a Great
Day. That includes city
personnel, Council mem-
bers and volunteers from
different organizations.
We do appreciate all your
assistance. Without you we
couldn't have made it such
a Great Day.
Vendor awards from
the event were as follows:
The Best of Show award
went to Linda Shernenski
and Donna Batson. Craft
Awards: First place Bob
Cameron; second place
Nancy Piatek; third place
Gary Smith. Art awards:


First place John Gilbert;
second place Rox Fox; third
place Perry Dolle.
Opportunity ticket win-
ners from Great Day in,
the Country are as follows:
Grand prize winner of
Cancun round-trip airline
tickets Penny Stokes.
First prize: four days
three nights stay in a
two-bedroom villa at the
Marriot Vacation Resort,
Hilton Head, S.C., goes to
Denise Zwicker.
Other exciting ticket
winners: The camera and
photo basket went to
Richard Denning. The car
care basket went to Ralph
Cain. The movie night bas-
ket went to Lori Shirey. The
Sea World ticket went to
Kari Lindahi. The pet pam-
pering basket went to Dona
Walker. The spa and beauty
basket went to Davidson
Herruot. The Central
Florida Zoo family fun pack
went to Roger Richardson.
A wee bit of history: 35


years ago we started this
small festival in downtown
Oviedo with two tables.
The first table was (what
was called at that time)
a "white elephant" table
with goodies to sell, and
the other table had fresh
vegetables donated from
A. Duda and Sons. Then we
moved. Some older citizens
remember when we were
located in the St. Luke's
Lutheran Church area
and finally moved (as St.
Luke's was building a new
sanctuary) to the Lawton
Elementary School grounds
where we are now.
I am not quite sure about
the rooster on our logo and
banner, but the Duda com-
pany, years ago when we
started the event, said we
should use the rooster to
say, "The Oviedo Woman's
Club Festival should have
something to 'crow' about,"
and indeed we do. We had a
Great Day! .
The Oviedo Historical
Society hosts a meeting 7
p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, at the

Marketplace falling victim to thieves


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

By Lt. George Ilemsky


Burglaries and thefts
On Nov. 6, a burglary was
reported at a hair salon'
located within the Oviedo
Marketplace. There was no
evidence of forced entry
and mall security did not
show that the alarm was
ever activated. Cash from
the register, hair accessories
and products were reported
missing.
On Nov. 6, a couple of.
female juveniles were taken
into custody for shoplifting
a pair of sunglasses and a
necklace from a retail estab-
lishment within the Oviedo
Marketplace.
On Nov. 6, a subject stole
a bottle of cologne from a
retail establishment within


the Oviedo Marketplace
and fled as a loss prevention
officer attenipted to detain
him. The Police were noti-
fied and located a subject
matching the description
provided by the loss preven-
tion officer and hiding in
some bushes near the Sears
Automotive Center. After a
short foot pursuit, the sub-
ject was apprehended and
subsequently charged with
retail theft. This is an exam-
ple of good teamwork that
demonstrated zero toler-
ance as merchants are will-
ing to prosecute in order to
protect their assets.
On Nov. .7, a vehicle bur-
glary was reported in the
parking lot of the Oviedo


Little League. The victim
borrowed his mother's car
and he and a friend drove to
school and parked it in the
little league parking lot. He
stated he left his car radio
in the vehicle and did not
lock the right door. This has
been a common occurrence
and theme. A pull out car
radio was reported stolen.

The smartest people
get arrested
On Nov. 7, a couple of indi-
viduals were charged and
arrested for disorderly con-
duct and resisting arrest
when they began to yell
obscenities at police inves-
tigating a reckless driver
complaint. One of the
arrestees had an outstand-
ing warrant out of Seminole
County. Nothing like calling
attention to yourself. The
Oviedo Police would like to
thank you!
On Nov. 8, a juvenile wit-
nessed her mother strike
her stepfather in the mouth
with a closed fist after an
argument over the where-
abouts of her wallet. The


victim allegedly warned his
wife that if she becomes
violent, he would call the
police. Evidently, he did
as promised after he was
punched in the mouth.
After the police arrived, the
defendant spontaneously
uttered to police that she
did punch her husband in
the mouth because she did
not appreciate his tone and
body language. The female
wasarrested for domestic
battery.
On Nov. 9, police inves-
tigating a traffic, crash in a
driveway in the 1000 block
of Cracker Creek Court dis-
covered the driver asleep at
the wheel with the car still
in gear. That is not good!
It made for clear evidence
that the sleeping driver was
in actual physical control
of the vehicle which is an
important element in a
DUI. It was reinforced as
the officer got the driver's
attention when he woke up
and got startled. Evidently
he accelerated while the
vehicle that he struck was
being pushed. I think that


would qualify that he did
indeed drive and was cur-
rently driving that vehicle
while under the influence.
The driver was less than 21
years of age. Additionally,
the police discovered mari-
juana, drug paraphernalia
and stolen items in the vehi-
cle. This is not a good thing
for the driver ... I guess he
should get the "What Were
You Thinking?" Award! Shall
we vote?

NOTES


Seminole County Government
Television (SGTV) has won a
national award for Seminole InSIGHT,
the County's monthly news maga-
zine show. Seminole InSIGHT was
announced as the winner of the Silver
Circle Award at the annual conference
of the City-County Communications
and Marketing Association (3CMA) at
the end of October. The awards rec-
ognize outstanding local government
achievements in communications,
public-sector marketing and citizen-
government relationships.

Oviedo's recycling program has
been expanded so residents can
recycle a greater variety of paper and
plastic products. Republic Services
distributed additional recycling bin
along with a educational flyer from
Nov. 10-14. City parks, offices and
other facilities will also participate in
the expanded recycling program.
Recyclables now include:
Glass jars (clear, green and amber)
plus aluminum and steel cans
Plastic containers marked with #1
to #7 on bottom
Cardboard boxes, newspaper, junk
mail, food and cereal boxes, phone
books, magazines and office paper.
Because of the added paper that
can be recycled, residents are encour-
aged to use a two-bin system, placing
all paper and cardboard in one bin
and all plastics, cans and bottles in
the other bin.


The C.S. Lee Boat Ramp at 4600
E. State Road 46 in Geneva, has
reopened for public use. The ramp
had been closed after Tropical Storm
Fay due to high water. Mullet Lake
Park and Lake Monroe Wayside
remain closed.

Jackson Heights Middle School in
Oviedo is in special need of dona-
tions to help provide poor students'
families with Thanksgiving meals. The
PTSA will be delivering meals from
3-6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 21, but needs
monetary and food donations to make
that possible. Corporate support this
year has waned, making individual
donations more important.

The Denver Broncos on Monday
signed free-agent running back
Alex Haynes, a former UCF student.
Haynes is a second-year player who
joins Denver from Baltimore, which
waived him on Aug. 30.

The UCF College of Medicine has
received its 4,000th application
for the M.D..program. With an initial
class size of 40, that means students
wanting to be part of the new medical
school will have a 1 in 100 chance of
being admitted.
Those admitted will receive full
.scholarships worth $160,000.

"Good job," the instructor
calls to the young players
in his charming German
accent. "You got it, now you
are doing it right."The teach-
er's passion for the game of
tennis is contagious as the
students eagerly chase the
balls in an effort to return


with similar ease.
Mark Pachtner already
feels at home on the Red Bug
Lake Park tennis courts as
he enthusiastically encour-
ages hundreds of players
per week. With 25 years of
teaching experience, the
Oviedp resident joined the
Seminole County Parks and
Leisure Department as head
tennis professional in July.


The world of tennis has
always been a dream for
Pachtner, who came'to the
United States 10 years ago
from Germany. At 16 years
old, he was the youngest
teaching professional in his
homeland of Bavaria and
during his college years he
organized and operated
tennis programs. "Nobody
wanted to teach the little


kids," Pachtner said. "I ran
the junior program and I
really liked it and have been
doing it ever since."
WhileinBavaria,Pachtner
also conducted one-week
training camps in Italy
and the former Yugoslavia
for men's league teams.
He played in the country's
most competitive league
and is among the 8 percent


of teaching profession-
als who have both USPTA
(United States Professional
Tennis Association) and
PTA (Professional Tennis
Association) certifications.

ner through advanced tour-
nament players. The park
offers women's and men's
teams, leagues and private
lessons. Round robins pro-
vide an opportunity for
players to meet up and play
up to three rounds with dif-
ferent partners and oppo-
nents.
For younger players, Red
Bug offers Junior Training
for children as well as
USTA (United States Tennis
Association) Junior Team
Tennis with opportunities
to play in tournaments. The
public tennis program has
16 professionals on staff
during the summer months
and 12 during the school
year.
Pachtner said the
response to the newest
program at Red Bug, called
Cardio Tennis, has been tre-
mendous. The class offers
a combination of drills to
give players of all abilities a
high-energy workout while
improving skills. "We put
on the music, you run drills
and get a nice workout in a
sport-you really like while
being outdoors,' Pachtner
said. "We had 120 people
sign up the first week," he
added with a big grin.
- Connie Savolainen, who
takes lessons from Pachtner,
said she can tell he enjoys
teaching the strategy of the
game and with it the fun

and pleasure you can get
when finishing a point off
or hitting a really nice shot.
"[Pachtner] can push you
to your limit, but that's a
good thing. He brings with
him the love of the game,
the knowledge, strategy,
teaching ability, and true
interest in his players and
teams," Savolainen said.
Pachtner said he encour-
ages people of all ages to
join in, even if the person
has never even held a rack-
et. "It's a sport for life. You
can play when you are in
70s or 80s my parents
do," he added, smiling. "I
taught a grandmother who
was 65 years old and after a
few months she could play
with grandchildren."
Giving back to the com-
munity has always been
important to Pachtner, who
has also successfully orga-
nized fundraisers during his
career, including the Special
Olympics Tennis Fun Day
at Tuscawilla Country Club
last summer.
"I had a cousin who had
Down syndrome and died
at an early age and never
had a chance to participate

Tennis instructor Mark Pachtner, center, has offered help to players in the U.S. for 10 years since immigrating from Germany.


Pachtner said. He said he

Enthusiasm on the court
is one of Pachtner's biggest
assets. "I am their cheerlead-

It's always easy to learn if it
is kept fun. Don't take your-
self too seriously, so you can

Pachtner encourages

Student Alexis Eiland said she enjoys

Student Suzanna Poggi looked down at

a good cause. "I consider myself lucky," she

Hagerty Huskies Sports Review


COMPILED BY JAY GETTY
HAGERTY HIGH SCHOOL

Volleyball -
Playoff win pushes team
into the Sweet 16
A thrilling five-set match at George
Jenkins High School in Lakeland pro-
pelled the Huskies into the next round
of the FHSAA state series. As a result
of the 25-23, 20-25, 22-25, 25-17,
and 15-8 win, Hagerty will face Lake
Howell High School in the Sweet 16.
The team was led by a quartet of play-
ers consisting of Candace Johnson
(24 digs), Mandy McIntosh (8 blocks),
Anna Volz (14 kills, 15 points), and
Alex Teixeira (16 points). The girls are
Snow 10-13 on the year.

Swimming -
FHSAA Regional
Championship results 2008
In action in the pool, the swim pro-
gram will be represented in the 3A
FHSAA State Finals in at least four
separate events as a result of their


strong performances in the regional
championship meet. Leading the way
for the men was Matt Curby. Curby
earned a regional title in the 2001M
and established an All-American
Automatic Time in the 100 Back. The
Huskies will also be represented in the
200 Medley Relay and 400 Freestyle
Relay. Joining Curby on the relay
squads will be Takashi Worrell, Jordan
Pollack and Kyle Geiger. At press time,
the team was still awaiting official
word regarding the qualification sta-
tus of Worrell in the 200 Freestyle and
400 Freestyle events.

Cross Country -
FHSAA District
Championship results 2008
In cross country action last weekend,
Shannon Compher paced the girls
.to a fourth-place team finish as the
group advanced to the FHSAA Region
1 Championships in Jacksonville on
Nov. 15, 2008. Compher was third
overall in the meet with a time of
19:23. Following Compher and com-
pleting the team score were Ashley


Seymour (20:34), Shannon Dunne
(21:01), Sarah Ankli (21:32), Amy
Ankli (21:34), and Courtney Hitzel
(22:17). Hitzel's finish broke a tie with
Winter Springs High School for fourth
place.
The boys finished 10th overall to
complete their season. Peter Licari
posted the group's best finishing time
of 17:11. The time was good for 20th
overall.

Soccer -
Girls post a win, loss and a tie
in opening week of play
The Lady Huskies opened the regular
season of play on the soccer pitch
with a 6-0 shutout of the Lyman
Greyhounds. Danielle Filliben (2),
Samantha Shuman (2), Anisa Stewart
and Angela Malanga all scored in the
contest. Defensively, Kait Briggs and
Sarah Rassel each recorded a half
of shutout soccer in the goal. After
defeating Lyman, the team lost to
Oviedo 4-0 and tied Winter Springs
1-1 to finish the week at 1-1-1 over-
all. In the tie with the Bears, Shuman


assisted on a goal from Stewart with
less than five minutes to play in the
game to even the match.

Football -
Loss on the road ends playoff
hopes for Husky football
A batted-down pass on the last play
of the game sealed the 28-21 win
for Pine Ridge .High School as the
Huskies fell just short of advancing
to the state football playoffs. Hagerty
opened the scoring in the game with
a 1-yard touchdown run by Fez Shah
to lead 7-0 in the first quarter. With
the Huskies trailing 21-7 in the fourth
quarter, Jeff Driskel scampered 6
yards for a score to close the gap.
Pine Ridge responded with anoth-
er score of its own before Driskel
connected with Andrew Dillon on a
34-yard scoring strike to bring the
score to 28-21.
Driskel and Dillon both established
school records in the contest. Driskel
completed 20 of his 40 pass attempts
for a total of 238 yards. Of those 238
yards, 131 of them came on 13 pass-


es to Dillon. Defensively, Luke King led
the team with 11 tackles.
The Huskies will complete their
season on the road at Lake Brantley
High School this Friday.

Bowling -
State Finals up next for bowlers
after runner-up finish
The girls' bowling team finished as
the District 5 runner-up behind Oviedo
High School last week to advance to
the FHSAA State Finals at Boardwalk
Bowl Orlando. The girls tallied 2,430
pins to finish in the second posi-
tion. Alyssa Stephan led the team
with a 539 series. Rounding out the
final team score were Rachel Garland
(487), Sarah Lamoureux (486), Amber
Torres (467), and Deborah Overton
(451).
Despite not advancing as a com-
plete team, the boys will be repre-
sented by Richie Masillo in the finals.
Masillo rolled a 641 series to finish
as the second individual qualifier to
advance from the district.
