get the post, when Deputy
Mayor John Maingot, him-

Holt.

Commissioner Holt for the

"There was no retalia-
tion involved," Councilman
Dominic Persampiere said
in response at last Monday's
City Council meeting, ver-
bally pointing a finger at
Patel's accusation.
The City Council
demanded that Medici
comply with its codes and
produce accounting show-
ing that more than 51 per-
Cent of its income was from
non-alcohol sales.
The city may have its
own revenge on Medici if
the business can't produce
a clean balance sheet show-
ing it makes 49 percent or
less of its sales from alcohol-
ic drinks served at the bar.
That stipulation was a cor-
nerstone of the city's origi-
nal agreement with Medici.
Some on the .Council don't
believe the business has ever
complied with that rule.
"We changed the land
development code just for
Medici," Persampiere said.
"And they haven't done any-
thing to comply with it."
And the City Council
doesn't seem optimistic
that compliance will ever
happen.
"Weneverwanttohinder

just thumbed his nose at the

THE VOICE

In the aftermath of a police
raid on an Oviedo cigar
lounge, the city had some
stern words about business-
es that fail to comply with
its rules. And that lounge's
owner has fired back, hir-
ing an attorney and turning
over accounting books that
he says clear his company's
name.
Medici Cigars, Bar and
Lounge found itself.overrun
with police two weeks ago
when they cited the estab-
lishment for selling alco-
hol to underage drinkers,
and for allowing a minor
through its doors.
But owner Mitch Patel
had called the police opera-
tion a retaliatory move by
the city after he'd asked
for his business to be offi-
cially recognized as a bar to
ease restrictions on alcohol
sales.
"They wanted to embar
rass me," Patel said after
the raid. "I'm not in favor
of underage drinking at all.
Our bartenders threw out
three of their [undercover
underage drinkers] -who
tried to get a drink with-
out an JD. They said that
our bartenders served two
underage drinkers, but they
wouldn't tell us who, and
they wouldn't show us any
proof "

to get revenge on Patel for

Oviedo's Medicl Lounge faced an ultimatum by the city this week. It had to prove it's making less than 49 percent of its income
in alcohol sales, or face fines and possible closing. The business' owner said he's turned over accounting to clear his name.

that clears his business of
any violations; which was
confirmed by City Attorney
Sandra Ambrose. Now city
staff is poring over the 12
pages of accounting to
determine if it checks out
with city code. City Manager
Richard Gestrich said that
determination could be
made as early as Friday.
Persampiere said that the
matters could allbe resolved
if Medici is in compliance.
"This is just a compliance
issue," Persampiere said.."If
they can do it, then there is
no problem."


"He's a nice guy, but he
needs to comply."
Henken .said he thinks
Medici has overextended its
original business plan, mor-
phing from a cigar lounge
that sells alcohol into a bar
ahd dance club.
"The club.has turned into
a full-blown club," Henken
said. "That wasn't the origi-
nal idea. It was supposed to
be a cigar bar."
And that change has led
to more drinking and more
drunk drivers leaving the
club, Persampiere said.
"They had 32 DUls in just
four years," Persampiere
said. "That's how many the
police said were directly
linked to Medici."


' Some of those were
from underage drinkers,
Persampiere said. But Patel
denies that his bar serves
underage drinkers, know-
ingly or otherwise.
Patel said he'd specifical-
ly instructed his doormen
to count the number of
patrons under 21 attempt-
ing to enter Medici, and it
was a handful or less per
night. Patrons in Medici can
smoke cigarsif they're 18 or
older, but he said the vast
majority of his clientele isin
an older age group.
"On Monday only two
customers under 21 came
in," Patel said. "On Tuesday,
it was only five."
Patel said he turned over

there may arise a recommendation
for a different organizational struc
ture. "If we pigeonhole business as
usual, we're not allowing creativity
to occur." *
Commissioner Sally McGinnis
said she wasn't comfortable dis-
cussing the issue impromptu, and
motioned that it be placed on the
agenda in an upcoming meeting.
Her first attempt died because it
wasn't seconded by another com-
missioner, but her next attempt was
seconded by Brown.
Commissioner Jean Hovey sat
silent throughout the discussion.
Bush, Brown and Krebs offered
their support to Smith.
"Kevin has proven himself not
just here in the chambers but I hear
it with anybody I come in contact
with, residents or business people,"
Krebs said.


the Commission's May 26 meeting,
Bush said.
After embattled Manager
Ron McLemore resigned, the
Commission decided to postpone
its search for a new manager for
six months because of financial dif-
ficulties, but also to see how well
Smith would fill the role.
The interim period wasn't sup-
posed to end until July, when the
Commission agreed it would revisit
the issue of whether or not to do a
national search for a new manager
or to stick with Smith, who's been
with the city since 2005 and has
worked for local governments for
almost 20 years.
But at its April 27 meeting, just
halfway through the trial peri-
od, Commissioner Joanne Krebs
broached the subject dxiring her
report, citing that the decision
should be made soon.
"It'sthefairthingtodoforKevin,"


she said. "He's working so many
Jobs and I would say we would want
this to be settled."
Commissioner 'Gary Bonner dis-
agreed with cutting that period
short. He said he hasn't had ade-
quate time to decide if Smith is
right for the job. "I would feel it
was a missed opportunity to fairly
give Kevin Smith the opportunity
to demonstrate his capabilities," he.
said.
This started a tense exchange
between Bonner and Commissioner
RickBrownwhosaiditisimpossible
to fairly judge Smith's performance

JENNYTANDREASSON -


Fireworks will go off in Winter

cost residents a couple of dol-

larLast year, the city cariceled its
Celebration of Freedom, along
with a host of events, so resi-
dents could pay a discounted
fire assessment fee. This year's
event, which coincides with the
city's 50th annivei-sary, will hap-
pen whether or not the city can
contract enough sponsors to
cover the cost 'of the event a
likely scenario.
The City Commission is toy-
ing with the idea of charging an
admission fee to the event or
asking for a donation, options
it will discussed at its May 11
meeting.
Currently, Altamonte Springs,
Oviedo and Sanford do not
charge admission to their Fourth
of July events, although Oviedo
charges for its children's games
and play area.
Winter Springs Mayor John
Bush said he's against charging
admission.
"I'd like to see citizens vol-
untarily contribute," he said. "I
personally think asking for a
donation when they come in is
the best that we coul<1do."
The City Commission had


The city of Winter Springs is currently accepting applications for both food
and general vendors for its upcoming Fourth of July Celebration of Freedom.
Vendor spaces are priced at $150 for a general vendor and $200 to become
a food vendor for this event. If you are interested in taking part in the event,
please contact Chris Carson with the Parks and Recreation Department at 407-
327-6593 or at ccarson@winterspringsfl.org.


decided not to budget any
special events this year ib the
hopes that they would be fund-
ed entirely by corporate and
individual sponsorships. They
charged a committee ofvolun-
teers with that duty, and events
such as the Holiday Parade and
Tree Lighting and Hometown
Harvest have been held at little
or rio cost to the city.
But the Fourth of July
- Celebration of Freedom price
tag is a little bit steeper than
other events costing about
$61,000 and sponsors are
already hard to come by due to
donations dropping off in the
economic recession.
Even so, Parks and Recreation
Supervisor Chris Carson is get-
ting handed checks almost
every day from local businesses
and residents. So lar the com-
mittee has raised $17,000 to
$20,000 for the event, he said,
and another $35,000 or so will
be enough.
"We're doing our best to raise


all the money, and of course
there are no guarantees in life,
and if we're unsuccessful the
city will pick up the difference,"
Carson said.
In. .addition to fireworks,
activities and food vendors, the
event will feature a historical
tent that will honor the 50years
since Winter Springs was found-
ed.
"There will be all types of
artifacts a school desk, things
from the police department,"
Carson said.
Also, Winter Springs Idol, a
singing competition, will be held
during the event, event organiz-
er Pam Carroll said. Auditions
are being held from 10 a.m. to
noon on Saturday, June 13, and
Saturday, June 20, at the Civic
Center' 400 N. Edgemon Ave.
"Independence Day is the
ultimate day to have a barbe-
cue and a picnic," Carson said.
"What better way to celebrate
than to be in a park somewhere
in your own city?"

In Oviedo, the Lutheran Hayen

to vote at their normal precinct.
"Between the most expensive
option and the least expensive, it's
only about $5,300 difference," he
said.
Seminole County Stipervisor of

Monday's Council meeting about
the plans, saying -that voters had
gotten used to having all polls open
in 2008, and that it could be helpful
to keep them open.

to find out how much your turnout

That could eliminate confusion
that voters had suffered in the past

little fissures turning this

next year's budget. -
About 80 non-teaching positions
are still being eliminated, and all
employees affected have been noti-


fled. "No further staff reductions
are anticipated," Vogel wrote in a
memo to the Board.
Teaching positions may not be as
safe after two years, when the fed-
eral funding expires. The state used
additional non-recurring fund-
ing sources to balance its budget,
including "rainy day" reserve funds
and trust funds.
"In two years if the economy
doesn't pick back up, then we're in
jeopardy of losing a lot of employ-
ees," Schaffher said. "This is kind
of staving off starvation for two
years."

KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE

GenevaElen1ebtarySchoolstudents
have been dropping, plopping and
pouring aluminum pop tops into
six 5-gallon water jugs for the past
year. It paid off they collected the
most in the county and landed a
new laptop and $1,000.
Set up in the cafeteria, each jug
represented a grade level, and com-
p'etition was fierce to see which
grade could collect the most.
"It wasn't just the kids," Assistant
Principal Michelle Baker said, "the
parents were very competitive
too!" :
Collecting aluminum pop tops
began about one year ago as an
offshoot of the school's recycling
-program, Trash for Treasire, which
started last year.
The first Tuesday of each month
is designated Trash for Treasure D:iy,
and all kinds of items are collected
to help the Earth, the school, the
PTA or local charities, and to pro-
mote awareness about the value of
recycling.
< The grade level that- collected
the most pop tops won a pizza
and dance party and the goodwill
that they were helping the Ronald
McDonald House."Food was a great
motivator," said Christine Wydra,
who started the Trash for Treasure
Program with Bev Thompsoh, the


PTA Pop Top chairwoman.
"Our students really got into it,"
said Principal Dr. Tina Erwin, "and
in addition to awareness and help-
ing the Earth, the kids wanted to be
No. 1 this year since we were No. 2
. last year in o.ur debut year of par-
ticipating in the program."
Last year in the Pop Top contest,
the Seminole Council of PTAs for
Seminole County gave Geneva the
"Top Program" award for its recy-
cling efforts.
So Erwin, Baker and the entire
student body were thrilled when
they got the phone call that of all of
the elementary schools in Seminole
County, Geneva Elementary had col-
letted the most pounds of pop tops
for the Ronald McDonald House
Pop Tab Contest.
The school collected 312 pounds
of pop tops, led by the first grade
with 73 pounds. First-grader Emily
Price wins happy with the results.
"We won a pizza party and a dance
party," she said.
Erwin was surprised when she
found out that they had won far
more: Ronald McDonald himself
came to the school on Thursday,
May 7, to give the school a brand
new laptop computer and a $1,000
pre-paid Visa card.
Ronaldrongratulated the school
via the Geneva News Network and
visited all five first-grade classes,
personally greeting every student


Ronald Mc~onald presents Geneva Eementary School PriM li I s t P Ir


and thanking them for contribut-
ing to his house, also known as The
House that Love Built.
Ronald shared that people think
his house is for sick kids but it real-
ly serves as a homelike setting for
the families, parents, siblings and
grandparents of sick children, a
place to stay while being with their
children in the hospital.
How did they do it? Erwin said,
"Every day the students saw the jugs
in the cafeteria, the teachers helped
keep up the awareness, and the


parents, friends and family helped
them collect all those pop tops. Our
kids understand it saves money, it
helps the environment, it promotes
recycling and it supports Ronald's
House. Our school also has a history
of being very supportive of chari-
ties like Relay for Life."
How will the school use the prize
money, and -the new laptop? "It's
too soon to know," Erwin said, "but
we will definitely put them to good *
use."

Upon arrival an officer
met with the victim, who
told police he was alleged-
ly robbed by a black male
described to be in his late
teens. The male came into
the residence with a female
accomplice and asked if the
victim wanted to have sex
with her in exchange for
$30. This just doesn't sound
right. The victim evidently
agreed and went into a bed-
room with the female and
started to undress when the

the room a short time later
and pointed a revolver at
him. The victim reported
that about $240 in cash, a

in reference to a vehicle with
damage. Through the inves-
tigation, it was revealed the
vehiclewasinvolvedinahit-
and-run crash. The owner
was located at.the 400 block
ofAlafayaWoodsBoulevard.
Contact was made with the
owner, who was asked to
retrieve his driver's license.
An officer went into the
apartment with the owner.
In plain view was a clear
plastic bag with marijuana
and a multi-colored glass
pipe. The marijuana and
glass pipe were taken for
destruction and placed into
property and evidence. Alit-
tle house cleaning would be
in order especially if you let
the police into your home.
On May 9, a traffic stop
for a cracked windshield
resulted in the driver being
charged for being a habitual
traffic offender as his license
was suspended since 1983.
Of course, matters got even
more complicated as the
driver was caught in pos-
session of illegal narcotics,
which he readily admitted
to using.


Domestic disturbances
On May 8, art officer
responded to the 300 block
ofAlafaya Woods Boulevard
in reference to a battery in
progress. A male was taken
into custody for allegedly
striking his girlfriend on
the left side of her face
and knocking her to the
ground.
On May 9, a 9-1-1 call
resulted in a father being
taken into custody for strik-
ing his daughter and being
charged with domestic bat-
tery after the incident was
reported to police.
On May 10; an argu
ment over a custodial issue
between a husband and wife
escalated to being physical
after the male was refused
the right to visit his chil-
dren. He evidently showed

things became physical, he
was arrested for domestic
battery.

Celebrate Better Speech and Hearing Month
Want to earn an extra $23,000 per year? Wouldn't we all like to af-
feet our bottom line with extra money? Yet untreated hearing loss
is costing the average household $23,000 in lost income!
Where can you go forlielp? Patients can discuss their concerns
with their physician and ask for a referral to an audiologist. Fam-
Hy members should encourage their loved ones to seek treatment.
Audiologists are professionals qualified to diagnose hearmg loss, te
cause of the hearing loss, and recommend the best treatment plan.
Patients affected by hearing loss deserve expert, knowledgeable
care from an Audiologist who can accurately evaluate the patient's
condition aixd prescribe the solution that specifically addresses that
patient's needs. Audiologists:
Have a professional degree from an accredited university and
have undergone extensive training in all aspects of hearing impair-
ment causes and solutions.
-* Thoroughly analyze each patient's health history, including fac-
tors such as medications, diseases, physiology, genetics, and past ex-
posure to noise to determine theii- impact on the patient's hearing.
Provide highly effective treatment strategies that specifically ad-
dress the patient's particular needs.
*' Have extensive education and training necessary to determine
when a patient requires hearing aids.
Have uncompromised expertise to provide precise fitting of
hearing instruments, as well as custom tuning and verification of
the instruments' performance.
Ask family members, friends, or your physician for a recommenda-
tion to an audiologist who is independent arid able to focus on in-
dividual patient needs. The objective is to provide each patient with
complete, respectful care that expertly resolves hearing problems in
the most effective manner possible.
Audiologists have provider credentials that are recognized
throughout the medical community. This allows your Audiologist
to coordinate with other medical professionals to ensure that all as-
ects of ur treatment are addressed. Hearing loss has been linked
to impaired memory, fatigue, irritability, and depression. Loss of
hearings more than4n inconvenience or nuisance; it can have
serious health implications! Learn more about audiologists, hearing
loss, and treatment by visiting www.NowlHear.com
It is never too late to get back into your life. Make a call today to
discuss your hearing healthcare needs.

staying in shape is her main goal.
"There's not that much P.E. in

it's a great activity for kids."
McGrath's activity has given

it has given her a sense of accom-

Itching for a comeback


Twho teams gone, two continue in regionals


years, the team certainly had the
pedigree. But the attitude could be
everything, Coach Kathy Finnucan
said.
Just a couple days away from
walking back onto- the grass and
clay of Plant City Stadium, familiar-
ity was a double-edged sword star-
ing the Saints in the face.
"We know where all the entranc-
es and exits are," Finnucan said.
"We're comfortable with it, but we're
not so comfortable that we're going
to take anything for granted."
. That's something the Whites
agreed may have gotten them in
trouble last year.
"We may have been a little over-
confident," Heather said.
In her fifth and final year in a
Saints uniform, Melissa was hop-
ing to go out on a high note. "We've
been there, we've done it, but we
just want to get there again," she
said.
But getting there proved tougher
than the Saints on Monday after-
noon, as they played a Jacksonville
Bolles team bent on destroying the
former champions.
The Saints.had only allowed two
postseason runs up to then, but in
the semifinal game Monday, they
allowed three more. A run pro-
duction problem that plagued the
Saints at points during the season
again reared. its ugly head, hold-
ing them to only one score in the
game.
The final 3-1 score lent odd pre-
science to some pregame words
from Finriucan. Yet another final
four appearance adds another mark
on the dugout wall for the Saints.
And with another season ahead of
the Sain'ts next year, the comeback
trail starts:1gain.
"If it was easy, everybody would
be able to do it," Finnucan said.


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Daist billowed around Heather
White as she fired a neon green ball
toward home plate in the record
heat Friday afternoon. She'd been
hurling the ball five days this week
as the grass field around her prayed
for rain. It was T-minus one day
on the practice field before White
and her Trinity Prep Saints would
head down to Plant City to defend
a legacy and reclaim a title.
"I don't really see this as a come-
back," Heather said of her team
trying to recapture the magic of its
2007 state championship. "We just
take it game by game and see what
happens."
What happened last season in
2008 was a nightmare. The girls
entered the state championship
game ready for a back-to-back win,
bitt an unheard-offive errors in the
first inning let the other team on
the scoreboard in a big way. The
Saints never made up the gap.
This time the Saints were hoping
for a happier .outcome. And their
arsenal at pitcher and catcher knew
how to make that happen. Both
had been on the 2007 team that
won it all. Both were in likewise
form entering the state semifinal
game Monday.
But this pitcher-and-catcher duo
had something different than the
norm they're sisters. With senior
Melissa White calling pitches like
the "wiggle.curve" from her crouch
behind home plate, the pair had
helped lead the Saints to a com-
bined two runs allowed in three
games in the state championship
ladder,
They just needed to win two
more gRmeS. After making it to the
postseason for nine of the last 10

with the team they'd beaten
for the district title. -
And that's just what hap-
pened Friday night in Silver
flawk country, when the
two teams met for what
woold be the last chance of
the season for the Hawks to
down the Huskies, and for
the Huskies to get revenge.
And revenge was theirs,
when they took a 4,-0 third
inning Hawks lead and
turned it into an offensive
slugfest that would make
the score a landslide by the
end.
Propelled by a home run
and a series of doubles, the
Huskies piled on the runs in
themiddleinningscrushing
the Hawks' hopes as their
hurlers struggled to hold
back any of the Huskies'
batting order.
By the end of the game
the score was 12-5 and the


Huskies. had shocked the
Hawks, sending them pack-
ing from the tournament.
The Huskies will play in
the regional championship
traveling to Armwood High
in Seffner on Friday.
Three miles down the
road the Trinity Prep Saints
were.feeling the same pain,
as they fought a Trinity
Catholic teamthey'dalready
beaten in their district tour-
nament. -
The tables turned quickly
against the Saints, who gave
up five runs while scoring
only one of their own as
Trinity Catholic upended
their. season in one quick
stroke.
* For the. Saints, this too
was ddji vu, as they were
given a repeat performance
by Trinity Catholic, who
reprised their role as the

Commitment
...act of accepting a charge or trust


Commitment is an issue that
comes up in so many aspects of
our lives. Regrettably because
it's too often absent.
Sometimes it seems that the .
Only kind of commitment you
find these days is to oneself.
Maybe it's a holdover from the
so-called "Me Generation.
We believe thaf the best way to be committed to
ourselves is to be committed to serving thd needs of
our patients. -
Sound a little old fashioned? Maybe to some people.
But our commitment to our patients is simple and
straightforward.
To provide the finest in hearing health services. To keep
our skills at the highest level through continuing education.
To have the latest testing and diagnostic equipment. To only offer
hearing aids from reputable and responsible manufacturers.
And to treat all our patients with dignity and honesty
Sure it's old-fashioned. But if that kind of commitment
sounds good to you, call us for all your hearing needs.
