State senator

proposes a

mayor for

Seminole

County

ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Will a mayor soon preside
over Seminole County? It
might, after State Sen. Lee
Constantine proposed the
idea at a recent meeting.
"I think the idea has a lot
of advantages," Constantine
said. "We're bordered by two
counties
that already
have mayor
to go to bat
for them,
yet we're
changing
our chair-
man every
year. That's
not the best
way to run a county govern-
ment."
The state senator recent-
ly met with local leaders in
Altamonte Springs to pro-

Puppy pledge
K-,.. "*( .


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER l

Some Central Florida pet stores
are taking a "puppy-friendly"
pledge for the love of man's
best friend. Advocating to stop
the sale of puppies from puppy
mills as part of a nationwide
campaign for the Humane
Society of the United States,
these stores are proclaiming,
"We love puppies, that's why
we don't sell them."
Instead of selling puppies
for profit, local pet retailers
have joined more than 200
stores nationwide in making
the action to "adopt a pet" their
official stance on the issue.
Kathleen Summers, man-
ager of the Stop Puppy Mills
Campaign for HSUS, said the
jl i for the pledge is to

Riley, 2, a longhair dachshund, was purchased from an Oviedo breeder, not a pet store that likely gets its dogs from 'puppy mills.' Several local pet stores have taken
a pledge to not sell mill puppies, but to encourage adoption instead. The Humane Society of the United States is spearheading the national campaign to stop animal abuse.




Teachers lose bonus, get a 2% raise


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

Teachers in Seminole
County will see their sala-
ries increase an average of
two percent if a proposal
gets final approval from
the teachers' union and the
School Board.
The union is scheduled
to ratify the proposal next
week, with the School
Board taking a vote on
Tuesday, Oct. 13, school
district spokeswoman
Regina Klaers said. The pay
increase would be retroac-
tive to the beginning of the
school year.
The School Board is plans
to pay for the raises with

$700,000 that was original-
ly allocated for attendance
bonuses, which were sus-
pended this year because of
swine flu concerns, Klaers
said.
"The health depart-
ment was concerned about
incentives for attendance
because swine flu can be
very contagious," School
Superintendent Bill Vogel
said.
Vogel said the teachers
are deserving of the raise,
which didn't come last
year.
"They're working hard-
er than ever had before,"
he said. "There are more
accountability measures
put on teachers, state and
federal mandates ... Also

our teachers had to absorb
additional costs for health
insurance."
But, Vogel said, there is
a lot of uncertainty about
being able to retain teach-
ers let alone give them
raises in the coming
years. The district used $22
million in federal stimu-
lus money to pay for 400
teachers this year. "That's
going away in two years,"
he said of the aid.
Vogel doesn't think the
district will see a spike in
teacher absences despite
the incentive going away.
"Without a doubt we
have the most dedicated
and outstanding teachers.
I don't think it will have an
impact on those teachers,"


he said.
The substitute teach-
er budget has remained
"somewhat stable" over
the past two years, he said,
but it could be adjusted if
they detect a pattern of
increased absences.
School Board
Chairwoman Dede Shaffner
and Vogel both said they
hope to see the attendance
bonus reinstated next year.
"I think there should
be a reward for teachers
who are there every day,"
Shaffner, who served as a
substitute teacher in the
past. "I can speak from
experience: There's nobody
that can replace the class-
room teacher."

Reps rail against Amendment 4


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER

Seminole County held its
first "mayors and manag-
ers" meeting Sept. 16 to dis-
cuss four main issues in the
county with several of the
state's House representa-
tives.
The mayors of six of the
seven cities in the county,
along with city managers,
school board members
and other officials from
Seminole County's cities,
presented their views to
the representatives, who in
turn responded with their
perspectives.
State Sen. Lee Constantine
was in attendance, as
well as Rep. Scott Plakon,
Rep. Chris Dorworth, Rep.
Sandy Adams, Rep. Stephen
Precourt and Rep. Kurt Kelly.
There were also representa-
tives sent from other house
members' offices.


Casselberry Mayor
Charlene Glancy led the
meeting. For each of the
four issues, five minutes of
explanation were allowed
to discuss the pros and cons
of the legislation.
Altamonte Springs Mayor
Pat Bates led the discussion
of the TABOR (Taxpayer
Bill of Rights) Act & Home
Rule. The legislation places
a "one-size-fits-all" require-
ment on state and local gov-
ernments to cap revenue to
a defined base amount. The
amendment would limit the
collection of revenues by
state and local government,
according to the document
passed out to participants
at the meeting.
"We would like you all to
trust us with what we do at
home and we hope we can
count on all of you to pro-
tect our home rule powers,"
Bates said to the represen-
tatives.


The House representa-
tives vehemently opposed
Amendment 4, aka the
"hometown democracy"
bill.
"It will prohibit compre-
hensive planning in favor
of hundreds of disjointed
amendments," Rep. Scott
Plakon said. "The chaos it
will surely cause will lead
to massive inefficiency by
stalling efforts to improve
our infrastructure, it will
not prevent urban sprawl, it
will not protect our natural
areas and will be a detri-
ment to the quality of life
here in Florida. I will work
to defeat this anti-growth,
job killing scheme that runs
the risk of making Florida's
current economic down-
turn permanent."
Kelly said he'd also fight
against the bill.
"Hometown democracy
is a reactionary response
to people who feel we are


not governing properly," he
said. "You need to fight this
with virtually everything
you've got."
Winter Springs Mayor
John Bush spoke about
Senate Bill 360 the state
mandate that requires cities
to ensure that public facili-
ties are in place concurrent
with the impacts of new
development.
Bush said the main con-
cern for the bill is that it will
become a poster child for
Amendment Four.
Adams told the meeting
that the bill will probably
go through more changes
and more discussion and
become amended before it
goes anywhere.
Longwood Mayor Butch
Bundy made a case for the
Commuter Rail telling of
the benefits it would bring
to Longwood.
The House represen-
tatives all expressed their


approval of the passage of
the Commuter Rail. In the
past, it's passed in the House
but not the Senate. They said
they think this time it will go
through both. Constantine
said he thought it would
pass as well.
The fourth issue brought
up was the one-cent sales
tax for the Seminole County
School Board to use for
Operational Costsvs. Capital
Improvements.
Seminole County
Superintendent of Schools
Bill Vogel presented it
but met an unoptimistic
response.
The representatives
said it would probably go
through several changes
and fail before finding suc-
cess.
The representatives all
made a point of praising the
officials of Seminole County
for their close positive rela-
tionships with each other.

Rural communities unfold wonder


SBy Karen McEnany-Phillips


Even before a chill hit the
air, the quilts knew some-
thing was afoot. They had
lain dormant for months,
some for years, neatly fold-
ed in cedar chests and deep
old trunks tucked in attics
and pole barns amidst the
spider webs and field mice.
Some had been sleeping
in the third or fourth gen-
eration of closet, traveling
from a great grandmother's
cracker homestead to a
cinderblock ranch Ike
would have approved of,
to a Tuscan Mediterranean
villa suddenly abandoned
in 2009.
Some had been stitched
by women who remem-
bered with certainty being
refused the right to vote
but who patiently showed
their granddaughters the
pride of piecing patches
and scraps into artful pat-
terns. Some quilts had been
precisely folded in quarters


or thirds and stacked in the
deeper shelving of hall and
master closets. Others had
rarely felt a fold, instead
stretched leisurely over the
ottomans, sofas and faint-
ing couches of families big
and small.
The quilts' flannel
stripes and checks had
warmed widows on the
coldest days of summer
when loneliness chilled
to the bone. The flowers
and paisley patterns com-
forted young bodies with
flu, measles and chicken
pox and partnered with
broth and cold cloths to
break fevers. They lovingly
wrapped their length and
breadth around prayerful
mothers whose children
served in far-off places
like Normandy, Saigon
and Tikrit. They soaked
up the desperate tears of a
father whose dusty prayers
joined dust balls that rolled


out from under the bed
and swirled upward as he
knelt and bargained for
his newborn's future. They
provided a soft platform
for a loyal dog that listened
for the school bus engine,
his companion's sneakers
bounding up the steps, and
a slamming screen door.
And so the quilts found
their way from dozens of
rural homes to the Rural
Heritage Center at the
Historic Geneva School
where they were hung
on walls and quilt stands,
displaying their bold pat-
terns and loving stitches
for all to see last Saturday
on National Museum Day.
Every quilt has a story and
they symbolized the depth,
intimacy and perseverance
that make up the rural life.
We gazed at them almost
reverently as they adorned
the green walls of the
newly opened celebration
of rural lifestyle. They were
glorious and delightful in
their color and pattern and
each of us remembered a
quilt or two that comforted
us along the way.
There was a wonder
in our eyes as we walked
down the halls and into the
classrooms showcasing tal-


ent, creativity and tradition
in so many textures. The
shine of polished wood and
silver, the smooth curves
of glazing on pottery and
kayaks, the delicate strokes
of oil, acrylic and water
paintings, the deft detail
of a sculptor, carver and
conservator, the ring of a
dulcimer, the tempo of the
jug band, the clap in time
of the square dance tune.
Our thanks and admi-
ration goes out to all the
volunteers, benefactors
and participants who made
the day possible and we're
thrilled that it's just the
beginning. We can't wait to
visit you again.
October kicks off in a big
way this weekend with the
Homemakers Craft Sale on
Saturday, Oct. 3, and free
square dance lessons and
ice cream social on Sunday,
Oct. 4. During the first
two weeks new cooking
classes are offered at the
Community Center includ-
ing Polish, Middle Eastern
and campfire cooking. And
the wonderful October tra-
dition continues with the
Fall Festival at the Geneva
Methodist Church on
Saturday, Oct. 24, from 10
a.m. to 3 p.m. including live


music, hay rides, pumpkin
painting, old cars, lots of
food, and more. Call 407-
349-9596 if you want to
rent space for a craft booth.
The pumpkins arrive on
Saturday, Oct. 17.
Don't forget the Rural
Heritage Center still needs
volunteer hours and finan-
cial assistance to continue
its renovation and to pre-
pare it to be able to become
financially self-sufficient.
Every Saturday from 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. anyone is wel-
come to stop by the center
to help out. Consider buy-
ing a brick to support this
wonderful new addition to
our community that repre-
sents Geneva, Chuluota and
Black Hammock.

Pets I Puppy mills accused of forcing dogs to breed continuously in small cages


< continued from the front page

nationally celebrate stores
that are showing that they
can run a successful busi-
ness without using mill
puppies.
The campaign was initial-
ly launched last November
because of an HSUS law-
suit against pet-store chain
Petland, the largest retailer
of mill puppies, Summers
said.
It was re-launched this
summer to encourage con-
sumers to show their sup-
port for the campaign by
shopping for pet supplies at
stores not selling puppies,


but advocating adoption.
"Sadly, thousands of
well-meaning consumers
unwittingly support puppy
mills every year by pur-
chasing puppies from pet
stores, not knowing that
almost all pet store puppies
come from puppy mills,"
Summers said. "By adopting
pets or getting them from a
reputable breeder puts the
quality of life for their dogs
first; puppy mills will cease
to exist."
According to HSUS,
about one-third of the
nation's 9,000 independent
pet stores sell puppies. They
also estimate that 2 mil-


lion to 4 million puppy mill
puppies are sold each year
in the United States.
Marcia Sundberg, owner
of Pookie's Pet Nutrition &
Bow Wow Bakery in Winter
Park, said it wasn't a hard
decision to become a pup-
py-friendly store because
the adoption of animals
is something she strongly
supports.
"You hear so many stories
about people getting busted
for the terrible treatment
of animals," she said. "It's a
tragedy that people are sell-
ing puppies commercially
and forcing dogs to breed
continuously for profit in


harsh conditions. There are
so many mutts and pure-
bred dogs from shelters
and reputable breeders that
need good homes."
Debra Csuy, owner of
The Pets Natural Choice
in Oveido, said becom-
ing part of the campaign
wasn't something she had
to think much about either.
Having adopted dogs her-
self, she says she doesn't see
a reason to buy puppies and
dogs from people who don't
care about them. She said,
"It's unfair to the animals...
There are plenty of them
sitting in shelters that need
homes."


Going on the notion that
all dogs are created equal,
Summers said, whether you
buy a pedigree puppy or
adopt one at a shelter, you
should stop and think about
the quality of life you'd give
your dog and compare it to
the quality of life puppy mill
owners give their dogs.
Summers said to always
check local shelters and
consider adoption when
first looking for a pet.
"There are all types of
dogs at shelters that need
loving homes," she said.

Oviedo gets city health clinic


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Oviedo will get its own
municipal health clinic,
after the City Council voted
unanimously to build one
to give free health care to
its employees. The move
could potentially eliminate
the expense of costly health
insurance coverage.
The clinic is part of a


national trend of munici-
palities moving away from
traditional health insur-
ance plans and toward hav-
ing their own clinic, which
saves money and offers less
expensive care for employ-
ees.
Representatives from
the Crowne Consulting
Group showed figures to
the city that would add up
to between $500,000 and $2


million in health care sav-
ings over a five-year span,
were the city to build the
clinic.
"It'll certainly save us
money," Deputy Mayor
Dominic Persampiere said.
The amount of money
is still uncertain, but the
Council was willing to take
the plunge, re-appropriat-
ing the former fire admin-
istration building near City


Hall. The building will be
converted into a medical
center and open as early as
January.
Councilman Steve Hen-
ken is calling the move an
easy choice for the city.
"In my opinion there's no
downside to this at all," he
said. "It saves the city a lot
of money, and it gives the
employees a great advan-
tage so they don't have to


pay co-pays anymore."
He also said a Longwood
city commissioner and
Mayor John Bush of Winter
Springs are also interested
in sharing the program or
building clinics of their
own.
"I really think you're
gonna see this catching on
across the country," Henken
said.


CONSTANTINE I State senator: It's up to voters to decide if Seminole gets mayor


< continued from the front page

"strong mayor" role.
Chairman Bob Dallari
said that he hasn't heard
anything directly from
Constantine. That's because
neither he nor any of the
current Commission was
invited to the meeting. Con-
stantine said he didn't want


the commissioners to feel
threatened by the idea, and
wanted to discuss it with
other local leaders first.
Dallari said he hopes
to talk with Constantine
about problems he has with
the current form of govern-
ment and about his inten-
tions.
"I won't entertain any-
thing that the senator may


want to do until he talks to
us about it," Dallari said.
The move would require
official discussion in Com-
mission meetings and a
vote by the Commission to
approve it for a public vote
as a county charter amend-
ment.
Constantine downplayed
the idea that he may want
to run for mayor himself.


"This isn't about me, and
it's not about what I want,"
Constantine said. "This is
about what's best for the
county. If the voters want it,
then they'll vote for it, but
that's still a long way down
the road."
In the meantime Con-
stantine said he hopes that
there will be open discus-
sion about the idea, and that


the Commission and the
public can decide whether
to put it on a ballot.
"A lot of people are talk-
ing about it already," he said.
"I just wanted to start the
discussion. Hopefully they
carry it on from there and
we'll see if it gains support."

The Orange County Health
Department is reinforcing
educational messages to the
community on the risk factors
associated with infant mortality,
and educating women of
childbearing age on the benefits
of pre-conception planning,
good nutrition, and the benefits
of taking folic acid for a healthy
baby.
"Taking folic acid at least two
months before conception and
throughout the first trimester is
essential for the health and well-
being of the developing baby,"said
Dr. Kevin M. Sherin, director
of the Orange County Health
Department. Approximately 50
percent of pregnancies are
unplanned and it is essential that
women of childbearing age start
taking folic acid as a preplanning
method for unexpected
pregnancies. Infant mortality
rates are higher among black
babies. Data shows that black
babies are disproportionately
affected twice as much as
white or Hispanic babies. To
promote the importance of taking
folic acid, the Orange County
Health Department is providing
educational materials on folic
acid and a bottle of daily vitamins
containing 400 micrograms of
folic acid to their family planning
patients. Learn more about infant
mortality and the importance
of taking folic acid by visiting
the Orange County Health
Department's website at www.

video.

Actress and puppeteer Rebekah Lane puts on a show at Oviedo's Stenstrom Elementary. An anti-bullying program shows kids how to fight back.


KAREN MCENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE

Pigs, puppets and private
detectives have teamed up
to equip local elementary
students with bully pre-
vention techniques using
humor, songs and secret
handshakes.
"For whatever reason,
children don't have the
same coping mechanisms;
their response to bullying
appears to be more severe,"
saidTracey Conner, Founder
and President of MicheLee
Puppets. "Everything
changed after Columbine."
No longer considered
a phase kids will outgrow,
bullying is now defined
by law and 36 states have
enacted anti-bully legisla-
tion giving schools a man-
date to provide a safe envi-
ronment for students and
teachers. Florida passed the
Jeffrey Johnston Stand Up
For All Students Act in 2008
in response to a Cape Coral
student who committed
suicide after being bullied
for years.
Lisa Page is the Prevention
Specialist for Safe and Drug
Free Schools for Seminole
County and headed the
committee that wrote the
bullying policy for the dis-
trict.
That's when the pup-
pet shows came. "Kids love
these shows," said Page of
the theater productions,
which teach kids how to
combat bullying.
DARE Officer Diane
Duffy of the Oviedo Police
Department also provides
training to parents, PTA
groups and students about
the effects and consequenc-
es of bullying. They learn
about "hidden" bullying
behaviors such as spreading
rumors, unwanted teasing
and exclusionary behav-


iors as well as obvious ones
such as fighting, pushing,
tripping and destruction of
personal property.
"The cute songs and lots
of repetition are presented
on their level so they can
remember the message. It
gives them real life solu-
tions in a fun and exciting
program," guidance coun-
selor Terri Koepsell said.
Younger students enjoy
"A Good Day for Pancake"
about a pig who learns to
deal with a bully. Older
elementary students enjoy
"BSI" investigations that
use the CSI concept to iden-
tify clues and solutions for
bullying.
Tracey Conner's award-
winning troupe has per-
formed for more than


1.6 million children on a
variety of topics including
childhood obesity, literacy,
environment, health and
abuse during its 24 year
history. "Our bullying pro-
grams target 80 percent of
kids who are neither bullies
nor victims," said Conner.
"We empower the bystand-
er because the bystander
has the power to stop it."
Conner said students are
encouraged to distract the
bully, use appropriate lan-
guage to assertively address
the bully, and find a trusted
adult immediately if aweap-
on is present. Teachers use
activity guides as a spring-
board for discussion.
Reporting incidents is
crucial, said Koepsell, who
has been with Seminole


County Schools for 27
years.
"No matter how busy
we may be, we are always
available to help them with
whatever they need," she
said. "When children can-
not concentrate because of
bullying it affects the teach-
er's ability to teach all the
students. "We role play so
that they are more confi-
dent in their response to
the bully. Body language is
important. We encourage
students to stand up for
each other."
Conner said her puppets
are making a difference.
"We receive feedback that
students are excited when
they understand they can
respond appropriately to
bullying in any form."

Kids can bounce around as much as they please without destroying the house at Rebounderz Planet Jump in Longwood. The play place's main room features wall-to-wall trampolines.


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

For just a moment 9-year-
old Jordan Mann was
Superman, his body out-
stretched as the ground dis-
appeared below. A second
later the little boy dressed
in blue crashed down with
a smile on his face, and
bounced back up, again and
again. Welcome to every


child's fantasy, where the
world is an endless trampo-
line, and the sky's the limit.
Rebounderz Planet Jump
in Longwood offers children
- and adults the chance
to bounce off the walls with-
out Mom's favorite, one-of-
a-kind vase getting smashed
into pieces. It's a half-acre
exercise chamber offering
gravity defiance and fitness
with all the safety of a fully


padded room.
Dragging their parents by
the hand like small, leash-
pulling terriers towing more
than their weight with such
vigor, children flock to the
bricked building with a new
spring in their step to let
loose and jump around for
fun and fitness.
"I think Rebounderz is
a different ideal that reso-
nates with the concept of
extreme that today's youth
seeks out," said Mark Gurley,
owner of Rebounderz.
"When I was kid it was the
skating rink that was so
popular, but now people
want more exciting things
to have fun with."
With the age of hard-
wood skating rinks and
the act of lacing up a pair
of old leather skates to the
techno music and lights of
yesterday dying out, Gurley
said that he wanted to bring
back family fun in an inno-
vative way that still has a
physical element to it. Plus,
he said that he was tired of
falling off his own trampo-
line at home.
"With a trampoline you
can do just about anything,"
Gurley said. "They're not
as stressful on your body's


joints and muscles like feet
hitting hard pavement.
People can work longer and
harder for a great cardio
workout."
With about 84,000
jumpers springing into
Rebounderz for a little off
the wall fun since July 2008,
the facility now offers car-
dio classes, dodge ball tour-
naments on the weekends,
trick classes to learn new
jumping maneuvers and
even the occasional Friday
night lockdown to keep in
the fun.
Rebounderz' 11,000
square feet of space gives
6,700 square feet of jump-
ing room to its visitors filled
with neon, hulk green,
foam-padded buffers and
blue and black trampo-
lines. Angled trampoline
walls provide the rebound
experience of bouncing off
the walls, while trampoline
pyramids form a row in the
center of the jump zone
for more bouncing diver-
sity than just up and down.
Black lights line the ceil-
ing for a glow-in-the-dark
jumping experience when
the lights go out.
Tucked away in the cor-
ner is the Rebounderz


cafe and lounge area with
cool, black leather reclin-
ing chairs and couches. The
cafe countertop features a
scene reminiscent of Willy
Wonka's factory with its
brightly colored, crinkly
wrappers of sugary good-
ness and other foods that
aren't so sugar-based such
as hot, cheesy pizza.
Ideal for birthday parties,
Rebounderz is hosting 20
this week in its designated
party rooms.
Going on the notion of
safe, family-oriented fun,
Gurley said he's focused on
providing affordable fun
for locals that give them the
most fun for their buck.
"We didn't make this,
design this for tourists," he
said. "We made this place
for the people that live here;
tourists are just extra. If I
wanted to market toward
tourists I would have been
on International Drive.
People around here take
care of us."
With no doubt in his
mind that Rebounderz will
be around for a long time to
come, Gurley said "As long
as we can wear kids out,
parents will come."

With a 0-2 start in the Conference USA chase, the Knights need a win against Memphis to stay alive and in the running for a slot in the C-USA championship game. A loss would make that nearly impossible.


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

A near-miraculous come-
back in the final minute
of the game brought the
Knights within a touch-
down on Saturday, but
they couldn't find the final
score to bamboozle the East
Carolina Pirates.
The Knights fell 19-14,
after trailing 19-7 with just
a minute left on the game
clock.


Up to that point the
Knights (2-2, 0-2) had
watched what once was a
lead slowly slip away from
their fingers. Against the
Pirates (2-2, 1-0) the Knights
were desperate to win so as
to avoid falling to 0-2 in the
conference.
They scored early, with
offensive workhorse Brynn
Harvey rumbling into the
end zone in the first quarter,
followed by a Nick Cattoi
kick to go up 7-0.


The Pirates had trou-
ble keeping pace with the
Knights through the first
quarter, but struck quickly
in the second, going up 10-7.
The Pirates would score four
times unanswered before
the Knights finally began
their comeback in the clos-
ing moments of the fourth
quarter.
That was when UCF
quarterback Brett Hodges
launched into a furious
80-yard drive that took the


team into the end zone in
only 77 seconds.
On the ensuing kickoff
the Knights succeeded in
recovering an on-side kick
that gave them possession
of the ball with only 1:06
minutes left.
That's when the Knights
luck ran out of the stadium,
leading to a false start pen-
alty on the first play of the
drive, and a 25-yard bomb
by Hodges that was inter-
cepted by the Pirates. The


Pirates would kneel out the
final minute of the game to
seal the victory.
At 3:30 p.m. Saturday the
Knights host Memphis (1-3,
0-1). The Knights are look-
ing for their first Conference
USA win this season. If the
Knights lose another C-USA
game, they face a statistical-
ly difficult challenge for a
championship bid. They're
the only team in the C-USA
with two conference losses.


Silver Hawks end 17-game losing streak with surprise TD


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
Last Friday the Lake Howell
Silver Hawks did something
they hadn't done since Oct.
26, 2007: win a football
game. The team had strug-
gled through nearly two full
seasons and a 17-game long
losing streak before defeat-
ing Hagerty (0-4) in Oviedo
34-28.
And it came on the last
play of the game. Down
28-27 but standing on the
1-yard line, the team was
poised for a high angle field
goal, but went for a fake to
seal the win. Miguel Weed's
short pass found Daniel
McCord in the end zone, and
the Hawks had their first
win in nearly two years.
It was also only the sec-
ond game the Hawks (1-3)
have scored in this season,
after starting out with two
shutout losses.
This week the Hawks
travel to Liberty (3-1), which


is coming off a 20-14 loss.
The Huskies take this
week off, returning to the
field 7:30 p.m. Oct. 9 in
Winter Springs.
The Oviedo Lions (3-1)
staved off Timber Creek
(2-2) and several players
survived scary injuries in a
24-17 win for the Lions.
The Lions' pass defense
had to stop numerous long
drives by the Wolves, but
pulled it off with a dramatic
interception in a late drive
to hold onto the lead.
That grab came from
Adonis Oden, stopping the
Wolves' momentum.
The Lions have the week
off, returning against the
visiting Evans Trojans on
Oct. 9.
Winter Springs squashed
a final play on the goal line
to stop Evans 3-0. The Bears
(1-3) were playing in the
Trojans' (1-3) homecoming,
and used strong defense
to stop dangerous posses-
sions that could have led to


scores.
The Bears travel to Lake
Brantley for a 7:30 p.m.
kickoff this Friday.
Lyman improved to 4-0
on a 26-6 rout of Colonial
(0-4). The Greyhounds cap-
italized on eight fumbles
to keep momentum mov-
ing their way and keep the
ball out of the Grenadiers'
hands.
Marlon Bailey added 163
total yards in the game, split
nearly evenly in the air and
on the ground.
Lyman travels to Bishop
Moore for a 7:30 p.m. kick-
off Friday.
Lake Mary crushed
University 29-0, bringing
the Rams (3-1) closer to the
district lead. The Cougars
(2-2) couldn't find the end
zone, despite QB Curtis
Riley's 100 yards in the air
and on the ground. The
Rams travel to a 7:30 p.m.
kickoff Friday in Deltona.
Seminole won yet anoth-
er close game, this time


against Mainland 21-20.
Seminole kicker Eric Farkas
blocked the Buccaneers'
extra point attempt, sealing


his team's win.
The 'Noles host DeLand
at 7:30 p.m. Friday.

Letters to


Keep Winter
Springs honest
I realize I have been harp-
ing on the subject for some
time. However, it is evident
that the ill management
practices continue.
The city recently
approved an ordinance
increasing the water rates
to its citizens by quite a bit
due to monetary shortfalls.
A couple of weeks later,
a civic activity known to
us as Festival of the Arts,
originally brought on by
the Chamber of Commerce
last year for the first time


and welcome by some of
the Town Center businesses
that stay open during the
evening hours, is on the
Commission Agenda.
The discussion evolves
around expenses to be
incurred by the city of
Winter Springs in spite
of all the crocodile tears
spilled over the economy.
The economy has taken
a bite out of the general
fund and has in many ways
affected the labor force.
Leadership counts as
much when tackling hard-
ships, as for example when


one is riding the crest of a
wave.
A civic leader, purport-
ing to fill the mayor's
chair during the elections
of 2010, goes up to the
podium and suggests that
the city of Winter Springs
absorb the expense for pro-
viding security and other
city-related functions relat-
ed to any public activity.
Do you believe that at
a time of economic crises
the city leadership should
be asked to spend money
unnecessarily in an effort
to bring business to the
Town Center?
Do you believe that an
elected official or one pur-
porting to be one should
ask the taxpayers to subsi-
dize events for the benefit
of a few while at the same
time squeezing every pos-
sible cent to the point of
financial strangulation?
The powers to be always
use the only ruse available
to politicians; we have to
cut essential services and
lay off workers as the only
means known to them in
order to have the public
accede to their foolish self-
serving acts and actions.
It is my honest opinion
that if the Chamber wishes
to put on a show for what-
ever reason they should
first consider using their
funds and/or ask the busi-
ness persons benefiting


from the activity to fund it.
While the Chamber
advertises its successes -
we did this, we did that,
etc. at the expense of
others, their coffers remain
untouched and their so-
called leaders bask proudly
in the sunshine of misery
created while catapulting
themselves to a politi-
cal position from whence
they can certainly do more
harm.
I still continue to believe
that the city of Winter
Springs is traveling back-
ward instead of pushing
ahead to the future and the
well-being of its citizens.
-Ed Martinez Jr.
Winter Springs

Donate to expand
Central Park
Something very exciting is
happening in Winter Park!
We, the citizens, have been
given the go ahead to start
raising funds, to expand
Central Park!
Wow! Do you realize,
what a rare opportunity,
we have before us. I doubt
whether any other city
in the country, has this
chance to add green space
to the center of their city.
Whether you contrib-
ute $1 or $1 million, you
are still helping to leave a
legacy for those who will
live here years from now.
This is an opportunity for


all the community to come
together.

Maitland having a tea
party
In 2004, Maitland officials
revealed a comprehensive
plan for a new city hall and
public safety complex that
was to be the core of our
city's new Town Center. In
a special referendum, vot-
ers put confidence in their
City Council to deliver
what they promised, and
approved a tax increase
to pay for an $18.5 million
bond issue to finance the
complex.
Now, some five years
later, we see these prom-
ises have been shattered
and broken as there are no
viable plans for a new city
hall. The new police station
has been moved to west of
Interstate 4 at consider-
able additional cost. This is
contrary to everything city
officials told us about the
importance of having one
public safety complex.
