THE VOICE

Seminole County Manager
Cindy Coto was fired Tues-
day in a 4-1 vote. The dis-
senter, County Commis-
sioner Carlton Henley, said
he may resign his seat over
it.
Commission Chairman
Bob Dallari
called for
Coto's ter-
mination,
saying it's
time for the
county to
"move in a
new direc-
tion."
"Government is chang-
ing and in the next couple
of months we have to look
at business differently," he
said, "and I do think there
needs to be a fresh start and
perspective."
Dallari's explanation
came after Henley, who
called the firing "totally
uncalled for," pressed him
to clarify what he meant by
a different direction.
Henley wasn't satisfied,
and said he would consider
ending his term early if Coto
was let go.

The high cost of surviving cancer


KATIE ADAMS
GUEST REPORTER

Angela Filippone's fight
against breast cancer cost
her more than $100,000
over four years and that's
with insurance.
The 49-year-old under-
went six rounds of chemo-
therapy treatments and
paid $100 or more a week
in co-pays between hospi-
tal visits and five prescrip-
tions.
"I said to my doctor at
one point: 'How do poor
people go through cancer
treatment?' and [the doc-
tor] said 'Some of them
don't. They just can't do it,'"






atteitr1pigsTw
Center o State oad 434


she said.
Filippone is one of many
women that are struggling
to afford breast care treat-
ment in today's economy.
An increasing amount of
women can't afford hos-
pital care or even annual
mammograms. Many are
seeking help from medical
centers that offer free or
cheaper services.
One such center is
Halifax Health in Volusia
County, which offers free
screening mammograms
for Volusia County resi-
dents older than 40 who
are uninsured and meet
financial requirements.

UCF launches students to NASA


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER

For seven days Ray Prather
saw what it was like to
work 100,000 feet above
the Earth. Now he can't
wait to go back. Thanks to
the University of Central
Florida and NASA, he may
have a direct path to work-
ing in the space age.
Welcome to NASA's space
internship program.
In collaboration with
several Florida universi-
ties, NASA is giving students
the opportunity to spend a
week living their dream.


Through the Florida
Space Institute, students
have the chance to work
right at Kennedy Space
Center, giving them hands-
on experience in the space
industry.
The program is geared
toward science and engi-
neering undergraduate
students and gives them
an opportunity to explore
career options.
"The whole idea is for
students of different disci-
plines to work together on
a project," said Dr. Jaydeep
Mukherjee, director of the
NASA Florida Space Grant


Consortium and interim
director of the Florida Space
Institute. "We emphasize
hands-on because that's
what the job market is look-
ing for."
Despite the suffering
economy, Mukherjee said
the space industry is hiring.
The weeklong workshop
gives students an insight
into what it's like to work
for a company such as
NASA, and opens their eyes
to careers in the aerospace
engineering field.
"You really get into the
heart of NASA. We got a real-
ly good inside look to see if

it was something that we'd
want to do If the work
that we're doing is worth it
all," said Mark Werremeyer,
a junior aerospace engineer-
ing major at the University
of Florida who completed
the program in May. "It was
a valuable and rewarding
experience that will guide
me for some things that I do
in the future, classes I take,
clubs I join."
"I saw what I want to do
when I get out of school. It
was about seeing what kind
of work you want to get,
seeing what you want to
become," said Ray Prather, a
UCF engineering student.
The program has given
the NASA experience to
more than 200 participants
since 2005.
The next two academies
will be geared toward stu-
dents in Central Florida
- targeting schools in the
50-mile radius of Kennedy
Space Center. In October, 16
students will complete a ses-
sion every Friday for five
weeks. During either winter
or spring break, another 16
students will have the same
opportunity but for five
days in a row.
The students work with
a meteorological balloon


that is launched 100,000
feet into the air with a GPS
and a video camera.
Mukherjee said the inter-
esting part about the proj-
ect is that from 100,000 feet
in the air, it's possible to see
the curvature of the Earth.
The students work on the
project each day and launch
it their last day of the work-
shop.
Mukherjee said the pro-
gram receives many appli-
cations for each workshop
but participants are select-
ed on their level of commit-
ment and enthusiasm for
the field.
Gretchen Rivera, an elec-
trical engineering student
at UCF, said the program
was one of the most amaz-
ing experiences in her life.
"It opened my eyes to a
wonderful world of pure
imagination, dedication,
intelligence and team-
work," she said in an e-mail
interview.
The unique experience
gives Central Florida stu-
dents the ability to experi-
ence what it's like to work
in their dream jobs some-
thing not many college stu-
dents get to do while still
completing their degrees.

Remembering a world traveler


By Karen McEnany-Phillips 1


We mourn the passing and
celebrate the remarkable
life of Delmar Powell, who
was beloved by many from
as far off as Ethiopia to
Ohio to our own communi-
ties of Oviedo and Geneva.
I was privileged to meet
Powell and his wife, Helen,
nearly three years ago
when he published his first
book at the age of 84.
Over the past three
years, it was my honor
to share some passages
of Powell's lifelong jour-
ney with our commu-
nity through articles
and Stetson's Corner. He
brought us laughter, tears,
inspiration and awe and
like many of you, I could
have listened to him for
hours and hours. Del con-
sidered me a friend; I con-
sidered him a hero and will
always cherish the time I
spent with him.


After our first evening
together, I was stunned at
how articulate, funny and
relevant he was for his age.
His blue eyes were bright
and intense and he never
lost his train of thought.
He only paused once in a
while to take a breath or
a drink of water. He wrote
his books at the request
of his family and with the
awareness that recent gen-
erations had no knowledge
of the kind of experiences
he and his siblings had
growing up in the Great
Depression and the details
of WWII.
His first book
"Spizzerinktum, The
Rapturous Delight of
Growing Up American" is a
truly charming account of
American innocence, forti-
tude, spirituality, family val-
ues, sorrow and triumph.
Many of you know that


Del served in WWII and
survived Omaha Beach.
But to truly appreciate the
22-year-old who ran weap-
onless across the bloody
beach in Normandy, you
have to know the boy and
the teen that came before.
His traumatic first day of
kindergarten, his esca-
pades with cats, snakes,
alligators and chickens will
bring you tears of joy and
sadness.
Smoking rabbit tobacco,
making sassafras root
tea, riding a barge on the
great Mississippi River are
priceless experiences. The
camaraderie with his fam-
ily and brothers, including
accidents with bows and
arrows, axes, guns and can-
nons brim with boyhood
adventure. His discovery
of music and in the joy of
building a rollercoaster, a
diving helmet and a self-
rigged sailboat speak to his
imagination and creativ-
ity. It is a diary of gung-ho
childhood experiences jux-
taposed against the despair,
uncertainty, and pain of the
Great Depression.
Powell's journey into
manhood was shaped by
the Civilian Conservation


Corp., which he joined at
17, as many boys did. It
was a way to put people
to work, and the $30 was
sent home to his family.
In the years that followed
he learned valuable medi-
cal skills that began with
first aid and culminated
in learning basic surgery
and conducting autop-
sies. He worked with
dynamite in Miami as
Matheson Hammock was
created. He saw firsthand
the unspeakable majesty of
the Yosemite Valley as the
CCC built roads to access
it. Along the way, Powell
learned discipline and
teamwork and skills that all
formed his foundation for
the military.
Powell and his three
brothers all served in WWII
in different capacities,
and their experiences are
chronicled in "Four Stars
in the Window", written by
Tom Delvaux. To sit next
to a flesh and blood man
who cared for hundreds of
wounded on the tank deck
of a ship, who delivered
supplies to waiting medics
on the beach while gunfire
and grenades exploded all
around him, who was part


of the greatest naval flo-
tilla ever assembled, even a
writer is challenged to find
the words knowing you
only are privy to a thumb-
nail of what was a heroic
but horrific few days.
Ultimately 50-plus years
of his life were spent serv-
ing God as a chaplain, pas-
tor and missionary and
I can imagine he is now
saying to the other angel's
"Come on, let's go, we can
do that!"
Our condolences and
prayers go out to Powell's
family and friends who will
miss his sweet smile and
his compelling stories. We
honor the memory and life
of this true American hero.

COST I Program keeps the high cost of surviving cancer within women's reach


< continued from front page
Catherine McQuade,
breast health coordinator
at the center, said she has
seen between a 20 and 25
percent increase in women
seeking services at Halifax
Health from 2008 to 2009
because they no longer have
health insurance.
In times of economic
stress, preventable services
are put on the back burner
to allow for seemingly more
urgent needs, she said.
Halifax Health is one


of few medical centers in
Central Florida that receives
grants from Susan G. Komen
for the Cure twice a year.
But this year, McQuade said
she ran out of her allocated
funds after four-and-a-half
months.
But McQuade said the
Center won't turn down
women who urgently need
a diagnostic mammogram.
"I'm still putting women
through in confidence that
I'll get the money later," she
said.
Other areas of Central


Florida have experienced
similar problems. As medi-
cal centers have made the
transition to the more effi-
cient digital mammograms
in recent years, the cost of
mammograms has gone up
but grant money has stayed
the same.
To compensate, all hos-
pitals in Brevard County, for
example, cooperate with
United Order True Sisters
Inc., which offers free
screening mammograms for
uninsured Brevard County
residents and is run by vol-


unteers on a 24/7 basis.
President Sylvia Shapiro
said that as clinics run out of
money, they send women to
her for mammograms. As a
result, she said she has seen
an increase in patients.
"If we can help them, we
will [because] a lot of people
fall through the cracks, and
most are working or were
until this recession but
they have no insurance,"
Shapiro said.
Filippone was able to
find helpful services during
her treatment. She became


involved in the American
Cancer Society, which pro-
vided transportation to and
from her treatments if she
couldn't afford the gas or
a taxi. She was also given
a $200 wig through the
American Cancer Society.
The timing of her diag-
nosis could have been worse
- her husband was recently
laid off.
While it has been a strug-
gle, Filippone is staying pos-
itive.
"At least I'm here to com-
plain about it!"


COTO I McLean: We can't have a shared vision as long as Coto is manager


< continued from front page

the county manager," Hen-
ley said. "The problem is
with this board, and I think
we're complicating the situ-
ation here by trying to take
this type of action, and I
will rigorously oppose it."
Henley claimed that
other Board members
urged Coto to fire certain
county employees, which
she refused to do. "They're


her employees, not the
board's employees," Henley
said. He also said Coto was
responsible for building up
the county's reserves, which
they used this year to fill a
gaping hole in the budget.
Commissioner Brenda
Carey disagreed, saying the
Board championed a large
reserve fund.
"The city manager quit
listening a long time ago
and has played a three-


board member leadership
role," Carey said. "That's not
the way a county is to be
run."
Commissioner Mike
McLean said the Board can't
have a "shared vision" as
long as Coto is manager.
"We all tried to come
together to work toward a
shared vision of where we
want to go," he said. "As of
today, we don't have that."
If Henley were to resign


before his term ends in
November 2010, the gov-
ernor would appoint his
replacement, Seminole
County Supervisor of Elec-
tions Michael Ertel said.
There is already a candi-
date for Henley's seat for-
mer Seminole County His-
torical Society Chairman
Don Epps filed his paper-
work with Ertel on Monday.
There are no limits for
the county commissioner,


so if Henley were to resign,
he could run again in 2010,
Ertel said.
Deputy County Manag-
er Joe Forte will serve as
interim manager while staff
prepares for a nationwide
search for a new manager.
Coto, who was fired "with-
out cause," will receive six
months of severance pay, as
outlined in her contract.

Winter Springs man shoots fiancee


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

A Winter Springs man shot
his fiancee in the chest after
mistaking her for an intrud-
er. She was pronounced


dead at the scene.
John Tabbutt, 62, called
911 at about 3 a.m. Friday,
Oct. 9, and told dispatchers
that he had shot his fiancee,
Nancy Dinsmore, 62, at his
home on Andover Circle.


The two were supposed to
get married on Saturday,
Oct. 10.
During the four minute
call, a distraught and sob-
bing Tabbutt says Dinsmore
is bleeding heavily and


doesn't appear to be breath-
ing. Moments later, he says
otherwise.
"She's breathing!" he said
to the dispatcher. "Hang in
there honey, hang in there."
When medics arrived, one


of them told the dispatcher
that she did not appear to
be breathing. The Winter
Springs Police and the Med-
ical Examiner's Office are
investigating. Tabbutt has
not been charged.

PHO I Uu ISAAUn BABsU K I HE VOICE
Halloween doesn't have to mean elaborate, expensive costumes. Some local craft and thrift stores offer do-it-yourself costume ideas for your family.


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Every year on Halloween
neighborhood children
clad in fantastical costumes
walk up driveways to ring
doorbells, say, 'trick-or-
treat', and, most impor-
tantly, fill their buckets or
pillowcases full of sweet
treats.
To do this, a new cos-
tume is needed each year
for one night and one wear.
Whether it's Disney dar-
ling Hannah Montana or
the rugged, gadget-toting
G.I. Joe, costumes are get-
ting awfully pricey in these
tough economic times,
prompting parents to get
creative with a needle and
thread or find the nearest
discount store.
No need to go to an over-
priced costume store to get
the right outfit, which they
will outgrow in a year or
two. The following local


yet familiar stores offer the
most for your buck and
don't skimp on the popu-
lar characters kids know
and love:
Jo-Ann Fabric and
Craft store in Altamonte
Springs offers ready-made
costumes ranging from
$12.50 to $25, not to men-
tion wigs, socks and acces-
sories for children and
pets. Stocked with sewing
machines, thread and yards
of fabric, Jo-Ann's has a
selection to choose from if
homemade is what you're
looking for. For more infor-
mation, visit www.joann.
com.
Target meets most
Halloween needs, from
candy-stocked shelves to
ghoulish home decor to
ready-made costumes for
the whole family, including
your furry friends. Priced at
around $30 or less, costumes
range from fairies to the
ever-popular Transformers.


Browse the isles for your
size or shop online for an
even wider selection of
costumes and accessories
where shipping is free on
some items. Visit www.tar-
get.com to learn more.
Wal-Mart offers all cos-
tumes $25 or less with a
greater selection online,
plus, like Target, has all the
candy you'll ever need to
satisfy the biggest sweet
tooth. Ranging from name-
brand characters such as
Snow White and Star Wars
star troopers to disco girls
and zombies, Wal-Mart is
yet another store offer-
ing reasonably priced
Halloween get-ups and
decor. Visit www.walmart.
com for more.
Rummaging through
bins at a thrift store or
Salvation Army are also
ways to turn a low bud-
get into costume success.
Plato's Closest, where you
can buy gently used clothes,


shoes and accessories or
sell your own to get money
back, offers a lot of choices.
Another man's junk
is another person's
Halloween costume.
Swap children's costumes
with their friends or reuse
and update them with new
accessories. Being creative
and making do with what
you have by taking every-
day clothes and accesso-
ries already in your child's
closest can save money and
make for a one-of-a-kind
costume no else could have.
Pull out old clothes and
style children into mini-
adults or into the eras you
grew up in.
Looking into stores
around town will help
you save on a costume
your child will only wear
once without skimping on
the trick-or-treat memo-
ries your child will always
have. Make it an affordable,
Happy Halloween.

< continued from page A7
ference between pool and
pond layers and ended up
choosing pond liners to line
the pool because of their
durability. Built to last 20 to
30 years, pond liners consist
of one layer in the pool's
construction. The other two
consist of carpeting and an
underlayment to prevent
water leakage.
Kira Ackbarali, "Meta-
morphoses" stage manag-
er, said the deck had to be
redone a few times to find
the right surface coating to
prevent actors from slip-
ping.
"Safety is always a huge
concern in any production,
but especially when deal-
ing with water," she said.
"We use Shammies to soak
up the water on stage and
backstage on the actors as
they come and go, mopping
during intermission and
between scenes. Everybody
has been taking the produc-
tion very seriously by only
being in the pool when they
have to and being careful
where and how they step."
Bell says that the pool is
kept at room temperature,
about 72 degrees. Keeping
it at that temperature helps
fight bacteria and prevent
germs from growing. "It's
like spring water: chilly, but
healthy for the actors," he
said.
Samantha Faith O'Hare,
the 20-year-old actress por-
traying Alcyone and Myrrah


On Sunday, Oct. 4 several students
from Midway Elementary School of
the Arts in Sanford, Haley Maxwell-
Sanders, Antares Ciotti, and Emma
Figueroa, received pianos from the
Steinway Society of Central Florida.

The 2009 Maitland Art Festival was
held Oct. 2-4 at Lake Lily Park. The
high school artwork was judged and
the winners from Seminole County
Public Schools are as follows: Best of
Show Nicole Hester of Winter Springs
High; First Place Winners: Tanawalt
Sakolvittayanon of Winter Springs
High for painting, Jenna Slater of Lake


- just to name a couple of
her roles said she has a
newfound respect for peo-
ple working in water.
"We had the pool for
the last two weeks during
rehearsal, and we found
that it kept getting colder
and colder," she said. "I'm
sure the water is visually
appealing to the audience
as a conductor for all of the
visual changes and trans-
formations that take place
though. It was really great to
have the pool for the artistic
side of the production."
Bell said he hired a per-
sonal trainer to get the
actors in shape by doing
exercises and yoga to build
stamina. He said it took
some time for the cast to get
comfortable acting in the
water, moving around and
holding their breath during
scenes.
Going into rehearsal with
a very open mind about
what the set would look
like, O'Hare said it was great
for the storytelling aspect.
She says that nobody ever
does it because of the chal-
lenge it presents in building
the pool and acting in the
water, but that it's "icing on
the cake" that she got to be
a part of the production in
its truest form.
"The stories are entic-
ing, the lessons-learned
are heartfelt ... And there's
a pool on stage, come on,
how cool is that!" she said.

Photo portraiture in town


Before he moved to New
York City and built a bril-
liant career photographing
leaders of the art world,
Jack Mitchell was a home-
grown Floridian who grew
up in New Smyrna Beach.
His fame as a photographer
came from the black and
white portraits he created
of artists (e.g. Andy Warhol)
with his work appear-
ing for decades in People,
Rolling Stone, and the New
York Times.
He has since returned
to New Smyrna Beach
where he now creates the
photo-portraits of master
artists who visit and 'teach'
at the Atlantic Center
for the Arts. His portraits
represent an amazing col-
lection of artists from the
past 50 years. Now his
work is being exhibited at
the Wooten Gallery on the
East Campus of Valencia
Community College at 701
N. Econlockhatchee Trail.
The Gallery is free. Call 407-
582-2268 for more infor-
mation. Hours are Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m.
until 5 p.m.

Great art for the kids
Who says that great art
isn't created for children?
One of the world's greatest
living illustrators Jerry
Pinkney will appear at


the Orlando Museum of
Art on Oct. 24 at 1 p.m. for
a special presentation and
book signing.
The Lion & the Mouse,
Pinkney's newest creation,
is a New York Times best-
seller. Admission to the
event is free, and the little
ones will see original illus-
trations from the book
displayed in the museum
galleries. This fascinating
exhibition from early
sketches to final book
pages will continue at the
museum through Nov. 1.
The art is even hung lower
on the walls for easy view-
ing by young visitors. This
exhibit is a great introduc-
tion to the wonders of a
museum for the young
ones. For more informa-
tion, visit www.omart.org
or call 407-896-4231.

Four ladies at the
Maitland Art Center
Another extraordinary
exhibit certainly one of
the finest of the season
- opened recently at the
Maitland Art Center. It is a
four-woman show entitled
"A Confluence," and it
features the artwork and
the interaction of artist-
colleagues Brigan Gresh,
Vicki Jones, Dina Mack,
and Anna McCambridge.
What it does brilliantly is


October 16 October 29, 2009 Page All


exhibit works by each art-
ist on one wall facing four
large collaborative pieces
on the opposite wall, allow-
ing the viewer to see both
individual and collabora-
tive works in a new way...
and it all seems particularly
at home in the Maitland Art
Center's quirky space. The
exhibit runs through Nov.
1. A Gallery walk with all
four artists will take place
on Sunday, Oct. 18 at 1 p.m.

'Cinderella' this weekend
With her castle nearby, our
children might believe that
Orlando is Cinderella's
home-town, and with the
Orlando Ballet presenting

sons to believe in magic.
The lead role in the per-
formances scheduled for
Oct. 16, 17, and 18 will
be danced by the sensa-
tional Katia Garza who was
recently honored by the
Mexican Consulate. The

Knights poised for historic game


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

It's nearly kickoff time for
the biggest football game
in UCF history. The Miami
Hurricanes, ranked No. 9 in
the nation in two college
football polls at the start of
the week, are coming to the
Knights' home for the first
time.
The only time the Knights
have hosted a higher-
ranked BCS team at home
was No. 6 Texas, who nar-
rowly defeated the Knights
34-32 on Sept. 15, 2007.
This year the Knights
have a few factors working
in their favor. Their defense
has held opponents to less
points than Miami, with 100
allowed versus 118. They
also haven't lost at home.
Miami is 1-1 on the road,
suffering a 31-7 blowout
loss at Virginia Tech Sept.
26.
The Knights met Miami in
Miami Gardens last year and
lost by only two field goals,
despite showing extreme
difficulty in mobilizing their
offense. The Knights only
gained 78 yards in the 20-14


loss, relying on their defense
and special teams for both
of their touchdowns.
And those touchdowns
came in dramatic fashion,
with defensive back Johnell
Neal racing 62 yards into the
end zone after intercepting
a pass in the second quar-
ter, and Joe Burnett taking a
fourth-quarter kickoff and
turning it into a 91-yard
scamper.
Both of those key players
are absent from this year's
team, having graduated in
2008.
In their place are more
prolific rushing and passing
units that were absent from
last year's team, turning the
Knights into a decidedly dif-
ferent football team than
the last one that met the
Hurricanes.
Quarterback Brett
Hodges has rejuvenated a
shaky UCF passing game,
totaling more than 900
yards in the air so far this
season. Running back Brynn
Harvey is coming off a 219-
yard game on the ground
against Memphis.
One thing the Knights
have kept is their defense,


PHU I U BY ISAAC BABCOCK- I HE VICE
The Knights are undefeated at home this year, but have never beaten a ranked team in 20 matchups since 1995.


which has held teams back
in rushing yards, particu-
larly near the end zone. Of
14 red zone possessions by
opponents this season, the
Knights have only allowed
five touchdowns.
What the Knights haven't
been able to stop are big
plays. In some frustrating
moments in their recent
win against Memphis (2-4,


1-2) the Knights held the
Tigers repeatedly to third
and long, only to watch as
seemingly effortless pass-
ing plays soared over their
heads. That included a
61-yard touchdown after a
third down and eight.
But maybe thescariest sta-
tistic of all for the Knights is
their all-time record against
Top 25 ranked teams. In


short, they've never won,
losing by an all-time com-
bined score of 862-359. By
statistics alone, a win by
UCF this Saturday would be
the biggest in school his-
tory.
Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m.,
broadcasting live on CBS
College Sports channel
and Bright House Sports
Network.


Lions overcome Evans with strong offense


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


A furious comeback
Evans wasn't enough


catch Oviedo on Friday
night, and the Lions won
21-14 in their first district
battle this season.
The Lions (4-1, 1-0) were


once again led by strong
offense, which neared 350
yards in the game. Running
back Stew Butler rushed
for 122 yards in the game,


averaging 11 yards per carry
and landing in the end zone
twice.
The Lions host Flagler
Palm Coast at 7:30 p.m.

Letters to the Editor


Complete beltway and
protect environment
Some situations can only
be described as bizarre.
When I sponsored
the Wekiva Parkway and
Protection Act, the state
senator from the 22nd dis-
trict was the Senate spon-
sor. The objective of the
legislation was to complete
the much needed beltway
around Central Florida.
The legislation passed
both chambers of the
Florida Legislature and
was signed into law by
then Governor Jeb Bush in
2004. Since then, progress
toward completion of the
road has been torturously
slow.
Recently, progress has
begun anew. The Orlando
Orange County Expressway
Authority has increased
revenue necessary to sell
bonds in turn necessary to
finance road construction.
The collapse of the real
estate boom has stalled
increases in costs of land,
materials and construc-
tion. The land purchases
required by the Act have
been completed.
In a stunning reversal
that qualifies for "Ripley's
Believe It or Not," the
senatorthtred that sponsored
legislation is now trying to
stop or slow completion of
the road.


The senator is encourag-
ing special interest groups
to file suit to prevent the
construction of the road.
Usually one can shrug off
these types of entreaties for
a group to file a frivolous
lawsuit. In the present mat-
ter, there is cause for con-
cern. The senator is closely
aligned with the particular
special interest groups he is
pressing to file suit.
There is no basis in law
for a suit to be filed. While
that statement is reassur-
ing, the only limit to a law-
suit is the filing fee.
Why would the sponsor
of legislation encourage
special interest groups to
prevent the implementa-
tion of the law? That is
difficult to rationalize.
The only plausible expla-
nation is the success we
have had preventing the
Department of Health
(DoH) from implement-
ing its onerous rule to
require performance based
treatment systems in the
Wekiva Study Area.
From the very first pub-
lic meeting where DoH
explained its onerous rule,
the State Senator has sup-
ported DoH in the imple-
mentation of the rule. The
State Senator has seen
opposition to the dread-
ful rule grow. During the
last session of the Florida


Legislature, the State
Senator had to admit a
defeat on the matter. One
can only presume that the
Senator cannot tolerate
not getting his way.
The Wekiva Parkway and
Protection Act does not
require DoH to implement
a rule regarding septic sys-
tems. The technology in
the Wekiva Parkway and
Protection Act regard-
ing onsite systems is now
dated. The work of Dr.
Martin Wanielista and Dr.
Ni-Bin Chang of UCF are
on the edge of perfect-
ing passive septic system
media that will be more
effective and less expensive
than those methods in the
bill.
Can the senator's friends
in the special interest
groups file suit to stop con-
struction of the road? Yes,
they can. Is there justifica-
tion for them to file suit?
No, there is not.
Let us hope these groups
will stand down on filing
frivolous litigation. Let
us hope these groups will
instead work toward rea-
sonable methods to com-

Spirits are crippled,
not bodies
While running in a triath-
Ion on a recent Saturday
morning, I was passed by
a young man who'd lost
his legs. He also had a mal-
formed hand. He slowed
down briefly, a big smile
on his face, to chat with
me about the weather that
morning and what other
events we'd been in. Then
he resumed his pace, on
his carbon fiber artificial
legs, still smiling. When
we debate whether to
say people are "disabled",
"challenged" or "different-
ly-abled", we're missing the
point. Crippling is some-
thing that happens to the
spirit, not the body. There


are physically whole people
who are crippled by fear
and hate, because they've
been taught that "the man"
is keeping them down,
or that their horizons are
bounded by politically-cor-
rect categorizations. The
body of the triathlete who
outran me on that Saturday
morning may have been
damaged, but there was
nothing crippled about the
man inside.

I really like Spanish I
because it opens new
doors when you learn
a new language. I like
to learn about other
cultures and I'll prob-
ably take Spanish II
