Commission picks Brunelle


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE
The Commission unanimously passed
a motion supporting Captain Kevin
Brunelle's appointment as police chief for
a one-year probationary period. Only the
city manager can promote or hire employ-
ees.
A 20-year veteran of the department,
Brunelleis serving as interim
chief while the position is
advertised nationally. Brown
urged the manager to cease
that search. "I really cannot
see spending money to do
a nationwide search when
we have somebody of Kevin's
S Brunelle criteria leading the police
force," he said.
But City Manager Ron
McLemore said the cost would be about
$2,000 and a competitive process would
be "more beneficial" for Brunelle because
he would capture the position "fair and


square."
Of the one-year appointment,
McLemore said, "We could do that," cit-
ing that he has several goals for Brunelle
to achieve first if he's going to be chief. "I
don't want to be on a collision course with
you but saying Mr. Manager do it, it's not a
good situation," he said.

Ex-commissioner ousted from board
Former City Commissioner Ed Martinez
was removed from the Planning and
Zoning Board by the City Commission
on Monday. Commissioner Sally McGinnis
dissented.
Commissioner Rick Brown, who made
the motion, said Martinez should not be
allowed to sit on the board because he
"lied to a state body about my ethics" and
routinely writes "derogatory" letters to the
editor about Winter Springs and its offi-
cials. The Florida Commission on Ethics
cleared Brown of a complaint lodged by

UCF's winter wonderland


PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK - THE VOICE
Ice skaters glide across the rink at UCF's Arena, where the school's Lighting Up UCF celebration has turned the campus into a winter wonderland. The skating rink,
created inside a tent in freezing conditions, is open to the public until Jan. 2. Light shows along the Arena facade dance to the rhythm of holiday music played nightly.

Oviedo Police say two suspects,
one wearing a Santa hat and beard,
attempted to break into an Oviedo
business early Monday, Dec. 1.
Atlas Pools of Central Florida on
Mitchell Hammock Road had a flat-
screen TV stolen previously, and the
owner had since installed surveil-
lance equipment and put a protective


film on the windows that prevent-
ed them from being broken, Oviedo
Police spokesman Lieutenant George
Ilemsky said.
The surveillance video captured
a dark-colored hatchback/minivan-
type vehicle backing up to the busi-
ness and two men getting out. One
man struck the windows four times
with a hammer, setting off the audible
alarm. They then fled, Ilemsky said.
The suspects might have been


involved in a string of burglaries that
occurred that morning, Ilemsky said.
Flat-screen TVs were stolen from two
nail salons in the area using similar
tactics.
As for the holiday garb, Ilemsky
said, "It could have been an attempt
to disguise his face or he was being a
bit of a wise guy."

Bad Santa on loose in Oviedo


MALL I Debts
near $1 billion
< continued from the front page
General Growth is unable to
pay off $900 million in mort-
gage loans due Dec. 12, its
banks will declare the debts
in default, forcing the mall
management company to
seek bankruptcy protection.
An additional $58 million
note came due Thursday,
after press time.
Fitch Ratings, an inter-
national, credit rating
agency, lowered General
Growth's issuer default rat-
ing on Tuesday. The com-
pany is now ranked a "C"
instead of a "B," because
Fitch said "default of some
kind appears imminent."
This week, activist inves-
tor William Ackman, of
Pershing Square Capital
Management, increased his
stake in General Growth to
25.6 percent or about 69
million shares. He owns 7.5
percent through purchases
.and the rest through "cash-
settled total return swaps,"
a financial contract that
transfers credit risk and
market risk of an under-
lying asset. Those swaps
were negotiated with BNP
Paribas, Citibank, Morgan
Stanley and UBS.
It's likely that Ackman
is betting General Growth
doesn't fall into default,
but even if it does, with
such a substantial holding,
he should get a seat at the
bankruptcy table.
If the company does seek
Chapter 11 bankruptcy pro-
tection, it will not have any
immediate effect on the
Oviedo mall and its tenants.
Chapter 11 protects a com-
pany from litigation while
it reorganizes and restruc-
tures its debt.

Call to keep the money local


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

A group of local business owners
are bracing to fight growing eco-
nomic woes, confirmed as a nation-
al recession just last week.
The National . Bureau of
Economic Research said last week
that the U.S. entered into a reces-
sion in December 2007. A slew of
small businesses and franchises in
east Seminole- County have shut-
tered their doors, most recently the
Cold Stone Creamery in Oviedo.
"It's going to be a cold, hard win-
ter, and the trees that are beefier are
going to come out stronger," said
Robert Goetz, manager of the Small
Business Development Center at
Seminole Community College, at a
round-table discussion Dec. 4 at the
Oviedo-Winter Springs Regional
Chamber of Commerce.
Goetz told the 15 business peo-
ple in attendance that they can-
not go about "business as usual" as
the country heads into a deepen-


ing recession. They need to work
together to decide and implement
changes that are key to their sur-
vival, the mission of the quarterly
discussions.
"The common theme is being
proactive," Goetz said.
Mary Alice Wilder, owner
of Wilder Accounting and Tax
Service and head of the Winter
Springs Special Events Committee,
embraced Goetz's message, but
stressed that many businesses are
* still doing well.
"It's not all doom and gloom,
but .collaboration is key," Wilder
said, adding that businesses need
to reach their hands out to the
"quad-town area," which includes
Longwood and Casselberry, since
many already go to church and
work in the neighboring cities.-
Steve Olson, owner of MMCS
Worldwide, a media management
company, said personal relation-
ships and keeping the money in the
area are important. "We are passing
out business cards at events but are


The next Business Roundtable event
is in February. Call the Chamber of
Commerce at 407-365-6500 or e-mail
peggy@oviedowintersprings.org with
questions or ideas.

we using each others' businesses?"
he asked.
Wilder agreed, adding that busi-
nesses should revert back to "good
ol' fashioned 'hit the pavement' and
'knock on the door'" tactics.
Some expressed concerns about
the two cities making it too tough
for businesses to open there. Wilder
said she interviewed a handful of
contractors recently at her Winter
Springs office and they all had a
similar reaction: "They said, 'If it's
'-in Winter Springs or Oviedo forget
it because the inspections are hor-
rendous."'
Transworld Business Brokers
agent Tom Lenzini said it often


seems like "business versus govern-
ment."
Cliff Collins, a real estate agent
with RE/MAX Town and Country
in Winter Springs, said fewer than
10 percent of the houses on the
market are selling, making the vis-
ibility of open houses and show-
ings increasingly important. "We all
have to think out of the box... those
sign ordinances have come to bite
us in the butt," he said.
Mayor John Bush, who attended
the meeting at the request of Goetz,
said the city can work to expedite
the permitting process. Oviedo
recently loosened up its temporary
sign ordinance, something Winter
Springs could do too. "The new
Commission will be much more
business-friendly," Bush added.
Commissioners Jean Hovey and
Gary Bonner, sworn in Monday, both
own businesses in the city. Bush
said he will ask the Commission to
set goals and would like input from
citizens and business owners alike.
"I'm asking for your help," he said.


Rural residents nervous about 1,400-acre 'city'


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Just about where the
Econlockhatchee River
dives under State Road 50
and meanders north into
Seminole County, trouble
may be brewing on the rural
front.
Just as that river, with
its tongue-twisting name,
cuts a path north through
the scrub brush east of the
University of Central Florida
and west of Chuluota, so
too does the rural boundary
line that was designed to
keep things as they are.
But a project proposed
to regional planners in
November has some rural
residents and officials
on edge. "Rybolt Park," a
planned development that
commissioner Bob Dallari
described as "a small city,"
would convert 1,400 acres
into the largest residential
and commercial complex
east of the river.


Environmental activ-
ist Deborah Schafer said
that's too close for comfort
for residents of the town
of Chuluota, which has sat
along the rural boundary
line for years. "They want
a city center right against
the rural boundary," Schafer
said. "They want to cross
the Econ River and head
straight to UCF."
That's part of a history of
attempts by the Rybolt fam-
ily to move the rural bound-
ary eastward, Schafer said.
"Every time the Rybolts
go to do something with
the county, they're trying to
go to move the rural bound-
ary," she said.
With the boundary
moved, the Rybolts would
have more freedom to
change their zoning from
agricultural to residential
or commercial, raising the
land value and leading to
development, she said.
With the Econ River right
next to the Rybolt prop-


erty, the St. John's Water
Management District has
moved to buy land bor-
dering the river to prevent
development there. That
deal was to be solidified as
of Wednesday.
That was all part of the
plan, said Rybolt family
spokesman Bud Brewer. He
said that the development
- which, he added, won't
begin visible construc-
tion until 2011 or 2012 -
wouldn't affect rural land.
"This is a very well-
thought-out and extremely
environmentally respon-
sible proposed project that
will be about a mile and a,
quarter from the University
of Central Florida," Brewer
said. "I'm .sorry but the
word 'rural' is not part of
the University of Central
Florida."
He said that the. main
areas impacted by the
development would be in
East Orange County, and
that Chuluota - residents

shouldn't be worried.
"The Rybolt Park devel-
opment as presented would
be west of 419 and south
of the Seminole County
line," he said. "Whatever
major impacts there would
be, would be outside of
Seminole County."
Schafer said that'll be
close enough to impact a
lot of rural area, and would
set a dangerous precedent
for future development.
"Because it abuts the rural


boundary, and because they
want to put a city center
there, it would destroy the
rural area," she said. "You'll
have intense development
against the rural boundary."
Brewer said that fear of
destroying rural areas is
about perception, not real-
ity. "There is a group who
wish that this was like it
was back in the 1960s and
1970s before development
happened," he said. "And
that ship has sailed."

Building our rural heritage


SBy Karen McEnany-Phillips


Happy holidays! This week
we focus on some of the
priorities for the Rural
Heritage. Center from
President Christopher
Stapleton and how every-
one can play a unique role.
1. Establishing the
Virtual Rural Heritage
Center. One of the fun
aspects of this project is
using 21st century technol-
ogy to showcase its vision.
The current Web site is
www.simiosys.com/geneva,
which will eventually
become www.ruralheritage.
us/fl/geneva. Among other
things, it will be a vehicle
for the membership drive,
fundraising efforts such as
the commemorative brick
drive, and participation on
blogs. Visit the site to get a
feel for the Rural Heritage
Center project. Chris wel-
comes feedback about the
site and is seeking some-
one to help maintain the
Web site with news and
, updates. With the special


user-friendly administra-
tion program, anyone can
help and contribute, and
we understand that editing
the Web site is easy.
2. Establishing the
physical center. This is a big
piece that includes volun-
teer clean up, A/C repair,
construction, installation
of furniture and fixtures,
and preparation and paint-
ing. Stop by the Old Geneva
School any Tuesday eve-
ning between 6:30 and 8:30
p.m. to get a feel for what
needs to be done (in any
way, not just construction!)
and how you or someone
you know could help. Bids
and volunteer lists are
being collected to organize
the construction piece, all
within the guidelines of
Seminole County and the
School Board. Donations of
furniture and equipment
are welcome; we have some
and will need much more.
Research continues on
what the liability will be


on full ownership of the
building including insur-
ance, risk analysis, labor
and other unforeseen
expenses associated with
converting it into a public-
use building.
3. Community
Partnerships are essential
to the ongoing success
of the Center. A simple
principle of marketing is
creating a successful brand.
The rural Seminole County
brand can begin to be
built and communicated
through activities such
as the weekend classes at
the center. Once we get
people to come out and see
the building, and then get
them involved in a hands-
on activity with rural roots,
the connection and under-
standing will begin.
Another great way to get
families and new genera-
tions excited is by promot-
ing the exploration of rural
Seminole County by bike,
foot, horse or car. Linking
natural attractions, trails
and landmarks of histori-
cal significance provides a
wonderful way to link the
past, the present and the
future.
A few local businesses
have begun to sup-
port these efforts. Focal
Landscaping is considering


a kiosk with maps directing
the public to rural areas.
Strickland's Butcher Shop
(new next to the General
Store) is considering pro-
viding picnic lunches. The
Educational Committee
is researching the types of
classes that could be held.
Local publications can help
get the word out as well.
We are only limited by
our imagination. I envision
businesses and organiza-
tions such as photography
services/camera shops,
sister historical societies,
sporting goods stores, Birds
of Prey Center, tackle and
bait shops, gun shops, pet
stores, the Seminole County
libraries, the many ranches,
feed and farm stores, book-
stores, and schools and
colleges all helping to pro-
mote the rural brand.
4. Fundraising has begun
through the sale of com-
memorative bricks while
another committee is
working to secure larger
sponsors. Another team
is planning a New Year's
Eve event as a way to bring
together several of the rural
communities in Seminole
County.
The fundraising drive
has several committees and
could surely use expertise
in reaching bigger corpo-


rate sponsors as well as get-
ting the greater Seminole
County population moti-
vated to contribute.
5. Design the layout of
the center within the build-
ing through an architect
and community work-
shops.
6. Grant fundraising.
The University of Central
Florida has agreed to be a
partner in the project with
a Real World Laboratory to
provide technological sup-
port, equipment and tal-
ent. Support through state
historic preservation, folk
life programs, and National
Endowment for the
Humanities educational
programs and exhibits are
also being researched.

The Seminole County
Democratic Party elected
new leadership Dec. 4 with the promise to
continue the momentum from the successful
2008 general election. The Seminole Democrats
elected Chris Lomas as the new chairman,
replacing Jeremiah Jaspon. Lomas served
as the vice chairman for two years and was
instrumental in the success of the Seminole
Democrats' fundraisers and volunteer efforts.
Jaspon is moving to Orange County.

If the Commission had chosen
to leave the money in its check-
ing account at Bank of America,
only the first $250,000 would
have been insured by the govern-
ment through the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation, FDIC. The
rest would have been insured by a
state program that has never been
tested before, McLemore said. If a
bank were to fail, it is unclear how
long it would take for the city to
recover any money in excess of
the FDIC insurance. "I would be
more comfortable with something
that's FDIC insured," he said.

Season awhirl with festive events


'Tis the season to be busy
and have fun! There were
so many places around
town with activities to
attend you just couldn't
stay home and be bored.
Christmas Holiday spirit is
truly in the air. Weather-
wise it was great, with some
sunny days, but to really
make it Christmassy we
needed snow (that's sort of
a bad word to some people,
who prefer heat).
Last Saturday, I worked
and attended Breakfast
with Santa at the First
United Methodist Church. I
helped with the craft table
and the children decorated
gingerbread men. What
marvelous gingerbread
men they turned out to
be - truly works of art for


hanging on their tree.
� A breakfast of scrambled
eggs, sausage and pancakes
was devoured by 300-plus
children, with Santa and
Mrs. Claus nearby. Story
time was a big hit.
Geneva had a big day
with 50 craft booths and
yard sale tables packed
with goodies.
The event was sponsored
by the Geneva Historical
and Genealogical Society
and was held at Geneva's
Community Center. Food,
fresh veggies and bargains
were the hit of the day and
it certainly looked like
business was very good.
The City's Holiday
parade was bigger and bet-
ter this year, but quieter,
with no bands from the


schools. The lovely floats
represented by local orga-
nizations, businesses, etc.
outdid themselves this
year. The Lawton house
looked so festive and the
tree and all its decorations
were lovely. Holiday music
filled the air while citizens
enjoyed hot dogs, cookies,
drinks and ice cream cones
- all free as gifts to all.
Our neighboring town
had much the same activi-
ties, as reported to me the
other day. It is so nice to
have this type of activity,
tree lightings. It brings you
and your neighbor out to
visit each other. You know
we all like to get together
and chat - even better
when it is over coffee and a
bagel.
Let's see what is in store
for the hext several days:
Christmas Musical, 7
p.m. Dec. 12 and 13 at the
Community Methodist
Church, 4921 U.S. Highway
17-92, Casselberry. The
choir and band present "A
Christmas to Remember."
Admission is free. For more


information, call 407-831-
3777.
The St. Lucia Festival
will be from 1-4 p.m. on
Saturday, Dec. 13, at the
Museum of Seminole
County History, 300 Bush
Blvd., Sanford. This annual
event features a Swedish
display to honor Seminole's
County's Swedes brought
over in 187.1 to work in
General Henry Sanford's
Belair grove. Authentic
Swedish music, food, games
and traditions are included.
Admission is free. For more
information, call 407-665-
2489
I have the perfect
place for you to entertain
your special friends for
the holidays. Come have
"Christmas Tea at the
Manor." King's Manor Bed
and Breakfast now has
opened a delightful tea-
room. Step back in time
and enjoy a wonderful holi-
day tea, including savories,
desserts, tea and a gift to
take home. There are two
seatings at 11:30 a.m. and 1
p.m. each day. Reservations


are required and the price
is $25 per person. Table
sizes are available accord-
ing to party. Please call
Roberta to make your res-
ervation, 407-365-4200.
Have you picked up your
2009 Preservation Calendar
yet? This yearly calendar is
sponsored by The Oviedo
Preservation Project, a non-
profit organization, and is
given out free to local citi-
zens. The calendar can be
purchased at Citizens Bank
and its branches. These are
good keepsakes, if one likes
to collect historic memora-
bilia.

Traffic arrests

resulted in the driver being
charged with possession of
a controlled substance.
On Dec. 1, a traffic stop
resulted in a passenger
being charged with being in
possession of a firearm by a
convicted felon. The defen-
dant was also on probation.

Cop talk
Just a note that two of the
mentioned attempted bur-
glaries were not successful
because the owners took
extra steps .to secure their-
property, and the burglars
could not get in. In others
there were some common
issues that can be identi-
fied. Did you see them? Let's
not wait until it happens
to us...Secure your property,
be aware and use common
sense!

You can't hope to be
lucky. You have to prepare
to be lucky.

A gingerbread man hangs around at the Partridge Tree Gift Shop in Winter Park. Tight economic times provide this season's shoppers with incentive to get creative.


AMY K.D. TOBIK
THE VOICE

is the season to
reconnect with old
.T friends and share
good tidings. With constant
reminders of rough eco-
nomic times everywhere
we go, 2008 may be an
opportunity for shoppers
to re-evaluate the presents
they give and perhaps focus
more on sentiment.
Americans typically
spend more than $400 bil-
lionayearonChristmaswith
the spotlight on electron-
ics and gadgets. Consumers
clamor for the "hot" items,
such as the latest iPhone
or iPod, for example, when
last year's model will really
suffice, or yet another Wii
or X-Box game, when there
are probably plenty not
even touched in the closet.
It's time to think outside
the box.
With only two weeks
before Christmas, try to go
back to basics this year in
the gift-giving department.
Quite possibly, the more
sensible gifts will carry
more sentiment.

. GAOlt of a li
Start a tradition of giving
special ornaments to family
and friends and be remem-
bered every Christmas
when the ornaments are
hung on the tree. Choose a
particular theme you know
the recipient enjoys, such
as traditional silver bells,
or select an ornament that
reflects your friendship.
Jennifer Johnson, man-
ager at the Partridge Tree
Gift Shop in Winter Park,
said there has been an
increase in ornament, fig-
urine and angel sales this
year, which she attributes
to people trying to get more
creative and sentimental
this season. "Because of
the economy, people still


want to buy gifts that are
less expensive, yet from the
heart - it's very important
to people," Johnson said.

Gift of food
Tough financial times cou-
pled with the challenges of
feeding holiday guests can
make the traditional food
basket an ultimate gift.
Baskets, filled with meats,
specialty cheeses and holi-
day goodies, can be enjoyed
by the entire family and pur-
chased pre-made at stores
such as Cavallari Gourmet
in Oviedo or Dominick's
Catering in Winter Springs.
Cavallari's Joan Harley
said gourmet food bas-
kets make ideal presents
because they offer
something -.
e v e r y-o ne
can enjoy.
Dominick
Commesso,
owner of




Dominick's
Catering, * said this
year his customers are also
choosing to purchase gift
cards redeemable for one
or more of his freshly made
meals. "One woman came
in and bought two meals
a day for 30 days for her
parents," he said..It's a more
economical gift, Commesso
said, than giving yet another
sweater or pair of slippers.
"The couple is in their 80s
and while they like to go
out every day, they would
prefer to not cook. It's a
very sensible and thought-
ful gift because people have
to eat," Commesso added.
Another thoughtful yet
cost-effective gift is to make
pies -or desserts in your
kitchen and include the
family recipe on a decora-
tive card. Not only are you
providing a meal or sweet


treat to a family during a
hectic time of year, but you
might also pass on a tradi-
tion.

Gift from the vine
Pair a bottle of wine with
friends and dinner and
treasure some quiet holiday
time together. Roger Van
Dusen, owner of Roget's
Fine Wine and Beer in
Oviedo, said, "Wine is a very
socially acceptable gift in
most circles. It has a cer-
tain connotation of sophis-
tication and is great to pair
with food and include in
dinner fare."
With at least 23,000
wines available, Van Dusen
is able to select wines for
his customers that are both
unique and well-priced.
With customers
being a bit
- more
-frugal
this sea-
son, Van
Dusen
said he
has been
able to
help peo-
t ple buy the
best qual-
ity wine they can for less.
"There are great wines in
the 10 to 15 dollar range,"
Van Dusen said.
Another creative option
is to make your own cus-
tom wine at Wine By Design
or D'Vine Wine, both locat-
ed in Winter Springs. With
only a few weeks until the
holidays and wine fermen-
tation taking at least six
weeks, select one of their
pre-bottled varieties and
create a personalized label
for gift-giving. Or make a
promise to create your own
wine together in the new
year.

Gift of service
The gift of service could
make the entire year bright-
er for someone on your list,


especially an elderlyperson.
Arrange for a lawn service
to take care of the property
or a monthly cleaning ser-
vice. If your monthly bud-
get is too tight, offer your
own services and enlist the
help of family members to
get the job done. Offer to
bring meals to an elderly
neighbor once a week and
include a quick visit - the
rewards may be everlasting.

Gift of enter inment
Sometimes in the frenzy
to buy material gifts, peo-
ple forget one of the most
valuable presents you .can
give - the gift of your time.
Spend the afternoon at the
movies with a friend or an
afternoon at a local theater
performance. A day at the
beautiful Morse Museum in
Winter Park or the Orlando
Museum of Art will also give
you both a much-needed
break from the holiday hus-
tle and bustle.
Little ones will be thrilled
to spend the day playing
miniature golf or bowling
or even burning off energy
at an inflatable playground
such as Sliderz in Oviedo
or Monkey Joe's in Winter
Park. MonkeyJoe's Manager
Michelle Ciaz said the holi-
day break is an ideal time
for children to come jump,
slide and climb while par-
ents watch and take a quick
breather. Monkey Joe's now
offers gift cards that can be
purchased in any denomi-
nation and used toward
admission and food. "The
children get to play while
the parents save money.
The kids can get out of the
house and have lots of fun
in a safe environment,"
Ciaz said.
And for a no-cost gift,
offer to baby-sit for an
afternoon to give mom and
dad some quiet time, which
can prove priceless.

Set the Christmas mood with poinsettias


The poinsettia, first intro-
duced from Mexico in
1825, has become one of
the most popular symbols
of the Christmas season. It
makes a great gift and is an
inexpensive way to add fes-
tive color to your holiday
decorations.
After the holiday sea-
son, it can be used as a
houseplant or placed in the
landscape to be enjoyed for
many more years.

Rowers
The poinsettia became'a
popular Christmas holiday
plant because it naturally
blooms at this time of year,,
displaying two popular
Christmas colors, red and
green. However, the showy
red parts, often mistaken
for flowers, are not parts
of the flower; instead, they
are highly modified leaves
formed below each flower.
These specialized leaves
are called bracts, and they
can be red, salmon pink
or white. The true flowers
are nothing to get excited
about - they are very
small, green and yellow in


color, and barely visible
among the colored bracts.

Care
Once you get your poinset-
tia home it is important to
care for it properly so you
can enjoy it as long as pos-
sible. The poinsettia is espe-
cially sensitive to chilling
temperatures. Prolonged
exposure to cold tempera-
tures will cause the plant to
drop its lower leaves.
Excessive heat can have
the same effect. The poin-
settia should be placed in
a cool place in your home
away from extreme heat
or cold drafts. This means
placing it away from
radiators, fireplaces and
other heat sources. The
ideal night temperature is
between 60-70 degrees F.

Watering
Watering practices are
equally important and can
determine the life expec-
tancy of your poinsettia.
Proper watering involves
applying water in sufficient
quantities to thoroughly
-soak the soil until it runs


SFlorida

Gardening

HORTICULTURIST


out of the bottom and add-
ing no more water until the
soil feels dry to the touch.
Your finger stuck in the
soil a few inches is the best
indicator of soil moisture. If
your poinsettia is in a plas-
tic sleeve, make sure the
water does not accumulate 4
in the bottom. Standing
water, in a sleeve or drain
tray, can cause root rot and
should be emptied out after
each watering.
Plants placed in the
home can dry out quickly
so check for moisture fre-
quently. If your poinsettia
suffers from lack of water,
some of the lower foliage
will yellow, die and drop,
producing a leggy plant.

Cutting flowers
Poinsettia flowers can also
be used as cut flowers. For
cut flower stems to last as
long as possible, first you
must seal the cut end of
the stem to coagulate the
milky sap and reduce wilt-
ing. This can be done by
immersing the cut end of
the stem in very hot water
for about one minute and
then immediately into cool
water.
The poinsettia: flowers
should be cut at least 24
hburs before they are to be

To produce a compact

during the growing season.
The new growth, after it
is 12 inches long, should
be cut back, leaving four
leaves per shoot.
Repeat this procedure
each time new growth
develops until about Sept.

"This plaza has such a nice

people around, they con-
gregate," Stumpf said.
Stumpf often jokes with-
-customers as- they com-

slogan is: I'm in the want
business, not the need
business," she said with a
laugh. "You don't need a

Only a month since

location, the 900-square-
foot shop has become the
ideal Winter Park spot to
find those hip novelty gifts
for friends, new moms and
bachelorette parties, as
well as sentimental moth-
er-daught-er gifts.
From attractive pre-
monogrammed travel
mugs to traditional mono-
grammed silver necklaces,
there is something charm-

The stylish La-Tee-Da
home fragrance lamps and
candles make fantastic
housewarming gifts and
the handmade sterling

Hagerty Huskies Sports Review


COMPILED BY JAY GETTY
HAGERTY HIGH SCHOOL

- Basketball -
Girls defeat Smyrna for
district win, lose to Mainland
In a pair of district games last week,
the Huskies defeated New Smyrna
Beach (60-41) and lost to Mainland
(47-30). Versus the Barracudas, Jaclyn
Maldonado and Cierra Gaines led all
Husky scorers with 24 points and 11
points respectively. Also contributing
in the scoring column were Megan
King (8 pts.) and Hannah Bradley (6
pts.). The team is now 2-3 overall and
1-1 in the district.
Boys start season undefeated"
in district play, fall to Oviedo
Astrongfaststarttothe2008-2009sea-
son has put the boys basketball team
atop the district standings in the 5A-5
grouping. In the quick start, Hagerty
defeated Mainland (69-53) and New
Smyrna Beach (75-55) to post a 2-0


record in district play. The Huskies still
must face Lake Howell and Seabreeze
to finish the first round of the dou-
ble round-robin district play. In the
two wins over the Buccaneers and
Barracudas, Brett Williams and Ryan
Mahoney helped pace the Huskies in
the scoring column of the stat book.
Williams provided point totals of 24
and 30 while Mahoney added a con-
sistent dozen in the victories.
Wrapping up the opening week of
play, Hagerty faced cross-town rival
Oviedo in the Tundra. The close game
resulted in a 55-48 loss to the Lions.
Williams once again led all Husky
scorers in the game with 27 points.
Williams recently signed a scholarship
to continue his playing days at Florida
Gulf Coast University. The team is now
2-1 overall and 2-0 in district play.

- Cross Country -
Compher completes senior
campaign at FACA all-star race
In the final race of her Hagerty career,


senior Shannon Compher helped pro-
pel the FACA Region 1 squad to a
team title in Tallahassee last week-
end. With a team score of 34 points,
the group ran away with the title by
placing five in the top 10 overall.
Compher finished fifth in the meet
and No. 2 on the team with a time
of 19:26 minutes, with splits of 5:42,
6:25, and 6:39 on the muddy and
twisting course.
The FACA Senior All-Star Meet is
comprised of the top 32 boy and girl
athletes from across the state divided
into four distinct regional groupings.

- Wrestling -
Lake Brantley Duals results
In action on the mat, the Hagerty wres-
tling team finished second overall at
the Lake Brantley Duals Tournament
last weekend. The tournament paired
the Huskies with five separate dual
match opponents consisting of Evans,
Lake Brantley, Seminole, Bishop
Moore and Atlantic High School. The


only loss of the tourney came at the
conclusion of a 42-42 tie with Evans.
Evans captured the win based upon
the sixth tiebreaker criteria of the
most number of first points scored
during the match.
Individually, Gavin Reilly and David
Hamilla both went undefeated in the
tourney. Reilly is currently 10-0 on the
year with five pins while Hamilla is
9-1 with seven pins. The team is now
5-1 overall in dual matches.
The wrestling team will compete
this weekend in the Winter Springs
Dual Tournament.

- Soccer -
Girls split week
with district opponents
A big district win preceded a rough
district loss last week as the team
defeated Lake Howell High School
by the score of 2-0 before losing on
the road to Seabreeze High School
(3-0). In the win over the Silverhawks,
Julie Tran and Samantha Shuman


each recorded second-half goals on
free-kick restarts to earn the victory
for Hagerty. Danielle Filliben added an
assist in the contest.
Defensively, the trio of Adriana
Chimelis, Kait Briggs and Tori Lysaght
provided the support for goalie Sarah
Rassel, who recorded another shutout
win with six saves in the goal. The
team is now 5-5-2 overall and 2-3 in
the district.

Boys defeat Lake Mary for big
conference win
Losses to Lake Howell (2-1) and
Seabreeze (1-0) preceded a 3-2 vic-
tory over the Lake Mary Rams to fin-
ish the week. In the win, Felix Ospina,
Dan Shift and Kyle Richmond all net-
ted goals for the Huskies. The lone
goal in the loss to the Silverhawks
came off the foot of Adam Tran.
The team is now 5-4 overall and
2-2 in the district.

it much easier for the employer to
search through hundreds of resumes.
The bad news is yours may never be
seen.
The way to increase the likelihood
of being found is to:
Read the ad or job description
carefully.
Put keywords in your resume.
These are words that are found
throughout the job description


or ad. For example, put Microsoft
PowerPoint instead of great com-
puter skills for a job that requires
PowerPoint.
Include a cover letter when you
are able to. This allows more key-
words and helps you sell yourself.
Reapply or refresh in 30-60 days.
This will keep you higher in the flow.
Again, always make sure your
resume is error-free.
These small changes can increase
the likelihood of being "found."
Take care and best wishes.
