JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

Winter Springs City Manager
Ron McLemore's bid to leave
the city for Ormond Beach
failed Tuesday night, as that
city selected a rival for the
post. McLemore, who had
described his city leader-
ship as unharmonious, now
faces what is broadly seen as
a rising tide against him.
McLemore said he hasn't
decided if he's going to
apply elsewhere. "I will con-
tinue to assess my options
93 and that's really about all I
can tell you right now," he
said.
Both of the newly elect-
ed Winter Springs city com-
missioners say they don't
want to see
McLemore
replaced, but
neither would

there was an unfriendly
political climate in Winter
Springs. In his Nov. 15 inter-
view with Ormond Beach
he said the commissioners
no longer share the same
vision for the city. "We
went through eight years of
unbelievable cooperation,"
he said, "and nothing has

when people are working
together."

JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

Afteryears of service, Winter
Springs Commissioners
Don Gilmore and Robert
Miller leave office after
their last city meeting on
Monday, Nov. 24.
New Commissioners
Jean Hovey and Gary
Bonner will be sworn in
Monday, Dec. 8.
"Commissioners Miller
and Gilmore have served


our city well," Mayor John
Bush said. "They have dem-
onstrated devotion and
diligence to making Winter
Springs a better place to
live."
Here's a look at these
men's accomplishments
and missteps.

End bittersweet for Gilmore
Commissioner Don
Gilmore brought to the dais
technical expertise and an
unwavering vision for what


Winter Springs will become,
colleagues said.
Gilmore said he enjoyed
"every minute" of his four-
and-a-half-year tenure on
the Commission.
"I learned an awful
lot, just an unbelievable
amount," he said. "I appre-
ciated the opportunity the
voters gave me and just
wish it could have contin-
ued."
Gilmore's replacement is
businessman Gary Bonner,


who won by 16 percentage
points on Election Day.
Gilmore said he is most
proud of opening the
lines of communication
between city staff and com-
missioners. He was also a
huge advocate of deed
restrictions and worked
to pass the compatibility
ordinance, which protects
communities from major
architectural changes.

Foreclosed homes create mess
ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


A sign marks the property of an Oviedo home that's gone unmowed for too long.


Around the city, code
enforcement problems
have grown as fast as the
yards of abandoned homes,
Oviedo City Councilman
Steve Henken said.
With foreclosures claim-
ing some homes in the
city, homeowners are dis-
appearing, leaving behind
overgrown yards and pools
that turn black, according
to city officials.
There are 628 homes
in Oviedo in some state
of foreclosure, according
to RealtyTrac.com. More
than 100 of those are bank-


owned.
"In a lot of these fore-
closures these homeown-
ers have just walked away,"
Henken said.
Normally the city would
send letters out, but with
a lack of responses from
disappearing homeown-
ers, the city has decided to
change the system.
The City Council voted
5-0 last week to have the
city cut lawns and chlori-
nate pools at abandoned
homes, and to charge hom-

Oviedo's plans for a new downtown include a central park, shops and offices.


n to keep
were filed by banks and
creditors. Although Broad
Street was involved in sev-
eral Florida cities' projects,
including one in Maitland,
Oviedo is the only city to
have made a claim.
In October, Broad Street
announced plans to shift
the Oviedo on the Park proj-
ect to a new developer or to
find a joint-venture partner.
Gene Godbold, manager of
the Walsh estate, said Friday
that he is in talks with four -
separate developers who
are "serious" about taking
on the project.
"I don't have any concept
of when we will arrive at
something," Godbold said
about finalizing negotia-
tions. "People are very inter- 0'
ested in the project." Br
Oviedo on the Park is to
be a mixed-use urban vil-
lage, which upon comple-
tion could have as many
as 1,200 homes likely a
mix of town houses, con-
dos and apartments and
close to 200,000 square feet
of office and retail space,
including an amphithe-
ater.
"It's planned and per-
mitted," Persampiere said.
"The impression I'm get-
ting is that (Broad Street
partner) Ken Kupp is going
to try to make something
out of it."


Allred sentenced to death


Andrew Allred, 22, was sentenced
to death Wednesday, Nov. 19, in the
murders of ex-girlfriend Tiffany
Barwick and friend Michael Ruschak,
according to a State Attorney's Office
spokeswoman.
Allred had wanted the death pen-


alty all along, spokeswoman Lynne
Bumpus-Hooper said. There will be
a mandatory appeal to the Florida
Supreme Court but "with him not
objecting to the penalty it could
come sooner rather than later."

That includes adding a
new magistrate position to
mediate claims from home-
owners when they're slapped
with landscaping bills when


they try to sell their homes.
According to Henken,
the magistrate will be a
local attorney hired specifi-
cally to hear appeals in lien
cases. Normally the Code
Enforcement Board would
hear those types of cases,
but special circumstances


required a special counsel,
Henken said.
City Manager Richard
Gestrich indicated that he
expected a low number of
cases to cross the magistrate's
desk, but if more foreclosures
leave homes in ragged condi-
tion, the Code Enforcement


Board may be brought into
play.
"I would rather have my
code enforcement board
hear those appeals, but Mr.
Gestrich said we won't have
that many appeals," Henken
said.

Can you hear history crumbling?








By. Karen McEnany-Phillipsn
A historic telephone switching building, left, shown before and after, and the LeFils house, built in 1910, have all been leveled.


Can you hear history crum-
bling? Can you hear it now?
Honoring its history is
a key element of Geneva's
character and this ongoing
belief is like breathing to
us, especially for those who
participate in the Geneva
Historical and Genealogical
Society. The preservation
of and education about
our roots has always been
vital to our community,
whether it is through the
Geneva Museum of History,
the Geneva Elementary
Interactive History Field
Trip, or the Annual Pancake
Breakfast Historical Bus
Tour. But before we begin
feeling too good about our-
selves, we have to remem-
ber that we don't win every
battle.
Mal and Mary Jo Martin,
our veteran historians,
sadly announced a few
weeks ago:
"The old building behind
the current phone building
housed the first automated
dial system in Seminole
county; we tried to get
AT&T to preserve it but to
no avail. Now it has been
demolished." It was a small


unassuming little build-
ing, but quaint. Probably
not much bigger than 10
feet by 20 feet, its off-white
concrete-block self was
snuggled next to a couple
of palm trees. Three steps
led up to a brown door,
and an inverted v-shaped
roof sheltered the front
entrance. If there were win-
dows along the length of
the building, the exterior
could almost remind one of
a tiny country church.
Mal, Mary Jo and oth-
ers had pestered AT&T for
years to preserve this little
piece of history, but one
day all that remained was
a pile of off-white cinder
blocks, the bulldozer that
did the deed, and yes, two
lonely palm trees.
.Another historical struc-
ture that was torn down
was the LeFils house locat-
ed on Old Geneva- Road,
at the curve just before
Osceola Road. The house
was built in 1910 and
demolished in 2004.
Some old buildings are
vulnerable to fire, like the
Peters house, built in 1900.
Located off State Road 46, it


was over 100 years old and
burned in 2004. Built in
1910, the Quirk house on
Old Geneva Road was also
lost to fire in 2002.
Currently another ven-
erable building that is in
jeopardy is the old Flynt
Inn-home whose roof is
falling in. This is a large,
well-known landmark at
the corner of Old Geneva
Road and Avenue C, recog-
nized by its green color and
square shape ... not to men-
- tion it was built in 1908.
Careful records are kept
by Geneva's Historical
Society including all the
historical structures in
the Geneva area, their lot
number, location, present
owner and original con-
struction date. If anyone
has resources to help repair,
finance, or otherwise sup-
port these buildings, please
contact Cynthia Simonton,
president of the GHGS, at
407-392-3057, or by e-mail
at GenevaHGS@aol.com.
More information about
Geneva's history can be
found at www.USGenNet.
org/usa/fl/county/semi-
nole/Geneva.


We know from recent
experience that Mother
Nature can bring us unex-
pected fury by fire, flood or
wind. But in order to con-
tinue to share these unique
buildings that hold such
history for our children
and future generations, we
need to think, plan and
act to bolster these trea-
sures before they crumble
through our fingers. We
don't want photos to be
the only reflections left of
Geneva's past.

Oviedo water could come to Chuluota


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


Oviedo's longtime stalemate with
Aqua Utilities of Florida over how
they *could come to a financial
agreement may have broken.
The water utility company has
started a feasibility study to deter-
mine whether the city should pipe
water to Chuluota residents, tak-
ing the potential partners' one step
closer to sharing water.
Aqua Utilities announced the
study on Nov. 13. In a press release,
company President John Lihvarcik
called the study "an important next
step in determining the project's
financial and technical feasibility."
Talks between the city and the
water company had been in a
holding pattern for months since
negotiations for the city to buy the
Chuluota water treatment facility
broke down.


That deal would have resulted
in Oviedo owning and operating
Chuluota's drinking andwastewater
supplies, with the hope of improv-
ing water quality. But with a gap
of more than $6 million between
Oviedo's offer and Aqua Utilities'
asking price, the deal never hap-
pened.
As recently as October city offi-
cials had maintained that talks were
still stalled, and that Aqua Utilities
had stopped responding to com-
munication from Oviedo.
Oviedo Mayor Mary Lou Andrews
said no real movement has occurred
in negotiations.
"I don't think much has changed
except that Aqua has initiated a
feasibility study to see how much
it would cost to pump -our water,"
Andrews said.
"Some people speculate that the
study may be no more than a delay
tactic while they seek out a way to
improve their system," she added.


"Other people think it's a sincere
effort on the part of Aqua to see if
they want to partner."
That partnership could be as low-
key as Oviedo sending water to Joan
Walker Elementary School, which is
outside of the city near Chuluota,
but serves some Oviedo students..
It could be as vast as Oviedo buying
the Chuluota water treatment plant
and taking over all water and sewer
operations.
Aqua Utilities is studying a com-
promise in between, which would
involve Oviedo piping in drinking
water to help improve the water
quality in Chuluota.
That water had been under scru-
tiny from the Florida. Department
of Environmental Protection and
the U.S. Environmental Protection
Agency, repeatedly testing below
national standards until recently. In
the last two quarters of testing the
Chuluota water supply has passed
standards, but the utility compa-


PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK THE VOICE
Aqua Utilities has launched a study into whether
Oviedo could provide water to Chuluota customers.

ny needs to pass four consecutive
quarterly tests to be certified by the
U.S. EPA.
Andrews said that passing those
tests is up to Aqua Utilities, not
Oviedo.
"At this point Aqua is going to
make or break itself based on its
own performance," she said. "Their
standards have improved the last
two quarters, but if they're going to
make it, it's not going to be on any
assistance they receive from us."

Cool blast comes with wave of fun


Looks like we are in for
another taste of cool
weather hurrah! This will
no doubt help heighten the
mood for the upcoming
holiday season. I am getting
my taster set to have Turkey
dinner with my oldest son,
Bill, and his wife Donna,
plus the rest of the family
in Leesburg this year. I just
love not having to cook;
that's why after many years
of cooking for the family,
now it's the children's turn.
There are many activi-
ties going on with our local
organizations, churches
and charities, and between
seasonal cooking and shop-
ping for Santa, there aren't
enough weekends left
before the New Year. Mine
are all booked. How about
yours?
If you enjoyed visiting
Great Day in the Country,
presented by the Oviedo
Woman's Club on Nov. 8,
then visit the 32nd Arts


and Crafts Festival in
the Longwood Historic
District, Ronald Reagan
Boulevard and Church
Avenue, sponsored by the
Central Florida Society for
Historical Preservation.
This is a great opportunity
to do more shopping that
you missed the past week-
end. Some of the Woman's
Club ladies don't get to
shop at their event so we
go to Longwood to see our
crafters we missed. The
event runs 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and 9 a.m. to 5
p.m. Sunday, Nov. 22 and
23.
Visit the Uptown
Altamonte Art on the
Boulevard fine art festi-
val from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday and Sunday, Nov.
22 and 23, at Cranes Roost
Park. The event is free to
the public with more than
150 fine artists, an interac-
tive children's art area, live
music, culinary delights,


wine and spirits, and so
much more. If you need
more information, please
call 407-571-8863.
A Big Band Concert will
be held 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Sunday, Nov. 30, at the

Services and the Altamonte
Jazz Ensemble will pres-
ent the music of Sammy
Nestico and Linda Cole.

Concert featuring the Brass
Band of Central Florida, 5-7
p.m. ori Friday, Dec. 5, and
2 p.m. and 7 p.m., Saturday,
Dec. 6. The three perfor-
mances are free. Conductor
Michael J. Garasi and the
renowned Brass Band of
Central Florida will be
joined by a mass choir

gram of Christmas and
holiday favorites. St. Luke's

ment, food and beverages,

Christmas" at 8:30 p.m. on

P. Leu Gardens are located
1920 Forest Ave., Orlando.

for children.
If you and your friends
are looking for local enter-
tainment on a Friday or
Saturday evening, you
might want to pop up to
Winter Springs. That is
the happening place. My
friends the Brandts and
the Wittys and I enjoyed
outdoor cuisine at one
of their local restaurants
and then moseyed over


to Barney's for a jazz con-
cert, which was free and
delightful. My point of
this news is that after liv-
ing in this town 20-plus
years, we have nothing
like what Winter Springs
Town Center has to offer
its citizens. Take in mind
the Winter Springs Town
Center is not that old. It
has neat restaurants, wine
bars, coffee shops and
many other commercial
establishments. The estab-
lishments there offer, on
different occasions, free
outdoor entertainment. We
in Oviedo should try some-
thing like what Winter
Springs has to offer.
Have a very Happy
Thanksgiving one and all!

important thing in com-

COMMISSION I Miller praised for having a backbone in office


< continued from the front page

Longtime friend Jim Matthews
said Gilmore didn't give in to the
"17-92 syndrome," a reference to
the cluttered Highway 17-92 cor-
ridor. "He saw the uncouth of that
and reckoned to himself, 'That's not
going to happen where I live."'
Part of the ordinance was against
improper high-density develop-
ment, and without it the "charm-
ing" Town Center may have had six-
story buildings, Matthews said.
Gilmore also fought for sidewalks
in several areas of the city despite
resident protest, which Gilmore
said gave him some "bruised-up
feelings."
Many of the people who were
anti-sidewalks have since changed
their minds, realizing the safety
benefits, former Commissioner
Michael Blake said. "Gilmore dem-
onstrated foresight and vision,
standing up and doing the right
thing even in the face of negative
public opinion."
But Gilmore wasn't without mis-
steps. He said his biggest mistake
was voting in favor of the fire assess-


ment fee, something all five com-
missioners did initially. Citizens
came out in full force against the
fee, many under the impression
that it was a new or additional tax,
he said.
If he had to do it over, he said he
would have voted to leave the taxes
as they were, going against a state-
mandated 9.5 percent cut.
Commissioner Sally McGinnis
said she will miss Gilmore's engi-
neering expertise and passion.
"Don was always thinking about
how to make our city a better place
for children a soft place in his
heart."

Miller finishes 11th year
on Commission
Commissioner Robert Miller's
worldliness and high expectations
helped to shape Winter Springs
throughout the last decade, col-
leagues said.
Miller, who leaves office this
month due to term limits, will be
replaced by Jean Hovey, who edged
out opponent Bill Poe on Election
Day.
"I'm proud of the strides the city's


made," Miller said. "I hope the city
continues to go forward as it has."
During his tenure, Miller said
he was a consensus builder, which
allowed the Commission to move
forward in a positive way. Sharing
a common view of what the future
should be, he said, is the key to
making a city great.
Former Commissioner Blake,
who admits to not always agree-
ing with Miller, said he focused on
vision over timelines and had a
"backbone" when necessary.
For example, the land where the
Town Center now stands was pro-
posed to be a standard strip mall-
type shopping center. Even a law-
suit was filed to get the rights to
build it, Blake said. "Miller was one
of the ones that stood up and said,
'We're going to stick to the vision
and provide long-term value for the
citizens of Winter Springs.'"
Miller is an avid traveler who
has lived in other countries much
of his life, experience that shaped
his vision, Commissioner Sally
McGinnis said. "He was always an
advocate for going the extra mile
to ensure that development would


withstand the ravages of time and
be as attractive in the future as pos-
sible."
But it wasn't all easy riding. He
said his biggest misstep was "taking
people at face value."
"When I heard people take a
position on things on the dais I
believed them," he said, referring
to his perceived consensus on the
fire department issues and adjust-
ing staff salaries.
He plans to do more traveling
and writing with his newfound
spare time. He has a book com-
ing out next year titled "America's
Lost Sons," a non-fiction account of
American prisoners of war.
Blake said Miller had the "cour-
age" to beautify the city. "He has an
understanding that it's more than
just how it looks, it's an incentive
for citizens and businesses to invest
in the community."
Editor's note: Commissioner
Joanne Krebs was out of town and
unavailable to comment on the
profiles. Commissioner Rick Brown
responded to a request for comment
with the following: "I prefer not to
comment on either one of them."

Crime, arrests and
public safety news from

assorted property and jew-
elry. The police were con-
tacted and were informed
of the identities by the juve-
nile who had-invited them

the victims and returned,
and all three juveniles were
subsequently arrested and
charged.

McLEMORE I New leader promises critical eye


< continued from the front page

critic of McLemore's leadership style, won
office Nov. 4. It takes a supermajority -
four votes to oust the city manager.
McLemore has held the post for nearly 13
years, longer than any of the city's elected
leadership.
Commissioner-elect Jean Hovey said
firing McLemore is not her "intention."
"My intention is we don't need to auto-
matically rubber-stamp what he does,"
she said.
Commissioner-elect Gary Bonner said
he hasn't formed any opinion about the
manager's performance. "I don't have an
agenda that has anything to do with the
personnel of the city."
He declined to comment on if he would
vote to fire the manager if the motion was
made. "I'll never discuss what my decision
would be outside the dais," he said.
Brown also declined to comment, but
said, "I'm not going into any meeting with
[a plan] to fire anybody."
Commissioner Joanne Krebs, who
backed Bonner, said she doesn't have
plans to fire McLemore, and if the motion
was made, she doesn't know how she
would vote. "I'm not thinking about fir-
ing anybody," she said. "There's too many
things on the table that have to be taken
care of."


Commissioner Don Gilmore, whose
seat will soon be filled by Bonner, said
McLemore would be right to question the
support of the next Commission. "It would
appear from things said at Commission
meetings that two of the commissioners
did not support him as it was."
Gilmore said he lost his seat because
of a controversial city fire fee, something
that was launched by McLemore. "Ron's
situation, knowing who's going to be run-
ning the show, is not going to be a healthy
situation," Gilmore said. "It's not going to
be for the better."
Commissioner Sally McGinnis, who
supported Gilmore for re-election, said
she has no plans to fire McLemore.
"Commissioners come and go, but our
city manager is the one constant through-
out good times and bad times, and he's
brought us through all of them."
"I don't want to say anything except I
hope that he stays."

Thanksgiving ,
Thanksgiving can
mean the ideal family get--
together or a day of awkward
moments, uncomfortablesilences
and eruptions of family feuds.
Here is a selection of Debra Fine's
top conversation bombshells:
"Are you two ever going to get
married?" Most of us mothers (I
am guilty as charged!) along with
the rest of the planet presume
that longtime dating results in
marriage. It ain't necessarily so!
And for those young people at
the table already blissfully wed:
"When are you two going to make
me a grandmother?" Back off! If
they wanted you to know their
intimate intentions they would be
sure to send you a press release.

'"Why did you two leave that
beautiful home for this dump?"-
APR and no interest loans created"
a housing crisis for all, not just
those strangers you read about in-
the newspapers. Remember what
*.Mom always said, if you have
..nothing nice to say, be quiet! -.

"I knew your candidate did not
stand a chance; what do you have
toP say for yourself now?" Stop
gloating, there are plenty people
eating turkey after the -election,
no need to rub it in. We are all in
this together..-
."Aren't you full yet?" or "Why
aren't you eating anything?"
Leave us alone about what

about what you put in your own
mouth. Just because eating
at the holiday dinner table is a
marathon of gorging for some, for
others it may be an Olympic feat.
of discipline.

"Yes, I know you're a parent. But
haven't you ever thought about
working?" Is this just a reflection
of the mommy wars? Whether
someone chooses to work outside
of the home or stay at home with
the kids, it is their choice, and we
should respect that choice and
instead show a genuine interest
in her.

"Did you cook this yourself, or
did you just thaw it out?" You
may be asking because you
sincerely wish to know how you
can create this dish yourself but
you are putting the host/hostess
on the spot. Instead ask for the
recipe after the meal. If it was
"not homemade she will let you
know at that time or maybe be
coy and say that the recipe is a
family tradition that is not shared

THANKFUL I Students give thanks


< continued from page A7
Oviedo middle school, Mansur ini-
tiated a "letters of gratitude" cam-
paign for November. She antici-
pates 1,400 letters will be delivered
to teachers' boxes throughout the
month to coordinate with National
Education Week. "I have piles of
letters in my office waiting to go
into mailboxes," Mansur said with
excitement.
Mansur predicts the lessons
learned from the assignment will
be twofold. The project requires
students to reflect upon their own
lives, and reach out to those who
have inspired them or encouraged
them. "I hope it will boost [teach-
ers] up a little bit and help them.
remember why they are teachers,"
Mansur said.
Michelle Harrison, JHMS lan-
guage arts teacher, said she thinks
it's a good idea for students to
thank those who have helped them


along the way. "The students who
wrote letters had to take the time
to reflect and think about who has
made a difference to them and how
long-lasting the effect has been.
Many found it difficult to choose
just one teacher and asked to write
two or even three letters," Harrison
said.
Harrison has already received a
few letters of her own in her teach-
er mailbox. "Since I was the deliv-
ery person, I put them in my school
mailbox the afternoon I collected
them, just like I delivered the other
letters. The next morning when.
I went to my mailbox and found
them there it was like a handful of
little gifts," Harrison said.
"The teachers who are lucky
enough to receive these letters
will likely keep them and re-read
them," Harrison said, "especially at
the end of some of the more dif-
ficult days."


OH I Sister: Vote, or don't complain


< continued from the previous page
Respectfully, I would like to see
the whole process of electing our
president be condensed into a six-
month span, but this concept is a
whole other article.
Those weary of politics should
still ask, though, if it's worth pass-
ing up the chance to vote. My sis-
ter has a theory: Her vote gives her
the right to voice her concerns pn


any issue. If she doesn't vote, she
doesn't feel she has the right to
suggest or complain. Pretty hard-
core, but practical. It takes person-
al responsibility to a new level.
Me? I was ecstatic to go to that
polling place on Election Day. I
brought my sample ballot all filled
out and took my kids to let them
help me voice my opinion on the
issues facing our country. It almost
made me want to sing.

BILL WALES
GUEST WRITER .
While the community cel-
ebrated Veteran's Day with
the hoisting of flags and
moments of silence, a group
of Cub Scouts took it further
and constructed shadow
boxes containing a U.S. flag
to present to a veteran in
their life. In a special cer-
emony in front of Oviedo
Cub Scout Pack 608 at First
United Methodist Church
of Oviedo, fourth-grade
Webelos-level Scouts. pre-
sented their gifts to proud
and grateful veterans.
Webelos Den 13, the
Coral Snake Patrol, wanted
to make Veterans Day more
personal.So,denleadersBurt
Schutt and David Zishuk and
assistant den leader Kristie
Svetics worked with their
nine Webelos scouts to tie
together this special holiday,
Scouting values, and people
in -the boys' lives who had
defended their country.
The boys would construct
the boxes and fold the flags,
helping them with their


craftsman and citizenship
activity- pins while honor-
ing veterans. The project
supported some of Cub
Scouting's core values such
as citizenship, cooperation,
perseverance, positive atti-
tude, resourcefulness and
respect. Local stores such as
Ace Hardware assisted the
Scouts with donations to

THE VOICE
Al-Terek McBurse shocked
no one when he returned
the opening kickoff for a
touchdown against the
Lake Howell Silver Hawks
on Friday. But he was just
getting started on his big
finish.
The 95-yard scamper that
bamboozled the Hawks'
defense did just as it had
to many in proving defense
just an annoyance to the
Bears' running back, who
has run 200 yards or more
in all but two of his games
this season.
And Friday night, he
etched his name in time,
racing down the field for the
last of his 2,232-yard season
- a Seminole County foot-
ball record.
In doing so, he led his
team to a crushing 42-6 vic-
tory over Lake Howell. It
was no great moment for
either team as a whole.
The Bears had already
been knocked out of play-
off contention, though they
received consolation in one
last victory to drive their
record to 7-3 overall.

them split by a touchdown
or less. Had the Bears scored
10 more points in their Lake
Brantley and Oviedo games
combined, they'd have been
playoff bound.
The Hawks' loss ended
with a 6-point whimper in
one of the worst seasons in
the team's history they
lost all 10 of their games.
In seven of those losses, the
Hawks scored one touch-
down or less, while allow-
ing opponents to rack up an
average of nearly 35 points
per game.
For the Oviedo Lions,
who sabotaged the Bears'
shot at the postseason with
a shock 35-34 win, the sea-
son ended with two set-


backs against strong teams
outside the area.
Friday night they lost
49-24 to Osceola High
School, ending their season
with a 3-7 record. Two of
the Lions' three wins came
against district rivals just
one win shy of a shot at the
playoffs.
The Hagerty Huskies had
made a name for themselves
this season by holding back
rivals from big scores, but
that defensive prowess
slowly eroded as the season
came to a close.
Their final game against
Lake Brantley ended in a
crushing 52-21 loss the
most points they'd allowed
another team to score this


season.
The Huskies finish 3-7
- a marked improvement
over last season's 1-9, which
had their sole victory decid-
ed on a technical forfeit
after they were blown out
by Seminole.

Hagerty Huskies Sports Review


COMPILED BY JAY GETTY
HAGERTY HIGH SCHOOL

Swimming -
STATE CHAMPION
Matt Curby captures title
in 100 Backstroke
In action at the FHSAA 3A State Finals,
Matt Curby secured the school's first
state title with an outstanding perfor-
mance in the 100 Backstroke. Curby
swam in 49.74 to win the race. He
also competed in the 200 IM and
posted an All-American Automatic
Time of 1:53.14. In the relays, Hagerty
finished eighth in the 400 Freestyle
Relay (3:15.83) and 10th in the 200
Medley Relay (1:41.17). Both are new
school records. The relays were com-
posed of Curby, Takashi Worrell, Kyle
Geiger and Jordan Pollack.
Worrell also competed as an indi-
vidual at the meet for the Huskies and
placed 16th in both the 200 Free and
500 Free.
As a team, the quartet garnered
73 points in the meet to place 12th
overall.


Bowling -
Girls place fifth overall in
State Bowling Tournament
In action on the lanes at the FHSAA
State Bowling Finals held at Boardwalk
Bowl in Orlando, the Huskies finished.
fifth overall in the championship rounds,
at the tourney. The 2008 champion-
ship roster for the Huskies includes
Alyssa Stephan, Amber Torres, Rachel
Garland, Sarah Lamoureux, Deborah
Overton, Pam Robinson, Shannon
Rimmer and Courtney Yoder. Hagerty
is listed in a tie with Timber Creek for
the position as both squads lost their
final match of the second day and did
not advance to the next round.

Cross country -
Compher qualifies for
state finals; team misses
In cross country, Shannon Compher
finished seventh overall in a time of
19:28 at the FHSAA Class 4A Region
1 Championships in Jacksonville to
earn a berth to the Cross Country
' State Finals in Dade City, Fla., on Nov.
22, 2008, at the Little Everglades


Ranch. For Compher, this is her third
trip to the state cross country meet
during her career at Hagerty. A sea-
son-ending stress fracture her junior
year accounts for the missing trip.
Following Compher and completing
the team score in the meet were
Ashley Seymour (20:33), Shannon
Dunne (21:04), Amy Ankli (21:09), and
Sarah Ankli (21:39).
As a team, the girls just missed
qualifying as a group with their
eighth-place, 195-point finish in the
16-school meet. The top six schools
advance to the finals from the meet.
The sixth qualifying spot went to Dr.
Phillips High School with 193 points;
Boone High School was seventh with
194 points.

Volleyball -
Sweet 16 loss ends
season at 10-14 overall
A 25-9, 25-16, 25-15 loss to Lake
Howell High School in the 5A regional
semifinal completed the season for
the volleyball program. Anna Volz
posted eight kills in the match for the


Huskies. The team finished the year
with a record of 10-14.

Soccer -
Shutout pasting of New Smyrna
Beach caps week for girls
A 1-1 tie with Lake Brantley and a
7-0 district win over the Barracudas
helped sandwich a 1-0 loss to district
rival Lake Howell last week for the
girls. The win, tie and loss leveled the
team's overall record at 2-2-2 after
two weeks of play. In the match with
the Patriots, Anisa Stewart scored the
lone goal late in the game to secure
the tie. Stewart also contributed two
goals and an assist, as did Samantha
Shuman in the shutout win over dis-
trict opponent New Smyrna Beach to
finish the week. Also scoring in the
win were Angela Malanga (2 goals)
and Danielle Filliben.

A win and a loss
open season for the boys
A goal from Adam Tran in the season
opener versus Lyman was the lone
highlight in the 3-1 loss on the road


for the Huskies. In their second con-
test of the week, the boys jumped
out to an early lead and posted a 3-0
shutout in a district game with New
Smyrna Beach. Defensively, Glenis
Graham grabbed five saves in the
game as Taylor Cope (2 goals) and
Tran accounted for the scoring.

Football -
Loss to Lake Brantley
completes the 2008 season
The football program concluded its
second season of varsity play with a
52-21 loss to the Patriots. Offensively,
the Huskies scored twice in the third
quarter and once in the final quarter of
the game. In the third, Andrew Dillon
recovered a fumble in the end zone
for the first of his two scores on the
night. Also in the third period, Willace
Chan scampered in on a 7-yard run. In
the fourth, Jeff Driskel connected with
Dillon on a 6-yard scoring strike and a
2-point conversion for the final points
of the season for Hagerty. Defensively,
Chan led all tacklers with nine in the
game.

McLemore facing coup as Ormond slips away


Winter Springs is in the
midst of a coup. It's been
in the works for about two
years, since restaurateur
Rick Brown won office over
Ed Martinez in what was a
mechanical campaign ver-
sus one built on emotion.
Brown's business sense is
admirable, and it's clear his
vision for the city's future
is one that's more business-
friendly. That being the
case, he's found a good
friend in Joanne Krebs,
who won office unopposed
four years ago and again
faced no opposition this
year.
The two have voted in
concert, and in opposi-
tion to the rest of the
Commission, on a variety
of issues, forming a vot-
ing bloc that's unsettled
other commissioners. The
Commission is facing a
rift, with City Manager Ron
McLemore as the wedge.
The manager is the
most powerful man in the
city, and not just for his
title. It's unusual for a city
manager to hold office for


more than a few years -
and McLemore is nearing
his 13th. He has outlasted
everyone who sat on the
Commission at the time of
his hire in January 1996.
He knows the staff and the
city's infrastructure as well
as anyone could, which to
someone uncomfortable
with his influence would be
rather threatening.
Unfortunately even
with the city's high regard
nationally as a great place
to call home, the city resi-
. dents' perspective hinges
on a smattering of financial
decisions, rather than on
an objective quality-of-life
assessment.
McLemore has been
conversely criticized for
being too conservative with
the city's reserve fund and
too reckless with the city's
investments and budget-
ing. Any look at the way his
staff is run, and how tightly
packed is city hall to save
money on office space, will
tell you he's a good man-
ager. Financial problems
are directly related to the


city's uncomfortably low
tax rate, one that ultimate-
ly backfired this year with
the Commission voting to
relinquish control of its fire
department because there
wasn't enough funding to
pay for it.
Since the Commission
faced the wrath of angry.
residents in the last three
years for even suggesting
raising its tax rate, the city
has held relatively firm,
and now with the collapse
of the housing market,
it's suffering financially.
Ultimately that respon-
sibility rests with a noisy
collective of homeowners
unwilling to tolerate even
an average tax rate for a
Florida city which, com-
pared with the nation as a
whole, would still be low.
Ironically, people pay-
ing so little for the city's
high-value services are the
same ones who gobbled up
the story during campaign
season that Winter Springs
needed fresh leadership
- when the real change
it needed was a reason-


able tax rate that would've
kept the fire department in
city control, and would've
made the oft-maligned fire
fee unnecessary.
Brown backed two
Commission candidates
this fall, Gary Bonner and
Jean Hovey, and both won
office. What's special about
the election of the two
is it brings his alliance to
four members just the
amount of votes needed
to unseat the city man-
ager. As this edition of The
Voice notes, no commis-
sioner will admit to want-
ing the city manager fired.
Hopefully they sincerely -
don't want that.
It is imaginable that
having four commission-
ers on the dais united in
holding McLemore more
accountable, and reining in
his influence, will help the
city. Having a healthy bal-
ance of power between the
city manager's office and
the Commission is a good
thing. Since McLemore lost
his bid to become Ormond,
Beach's city manager on


Tuesday, it's possible he'll
stick around and see how
things play out. He has
long said he wanted to
retire in Winter Springs,
hopefully after bringing
the Town Center to frui-
tion. That would seem.to
be contradicted, though,
by his statement to the
Orlando Sentinel during
the Ormond Beach hiring
process that he's "always

Winter Springs' immedi-
ate future will either be a
standoff between a quartet
of commissioners and the
manager, or a decisive shift
in the balance of power to
the Commission's junior
members. The only clear
thing is that McLemore
won't be heading to
Ormond Beach. Whether
he can work out his differ-
ences with the incoming
Commission and continue
to provide residents a high
quality of life and effective
leadership is another mat-
ter.
