Ex charged

in death

ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
An Oviedo woman called
police at 2:40 a.m. Tues-
day with a stab wound in
her abdomen. Less than 14
hours later, she was charged
with murder in the death
of her recently ex-husband.
Now police are saying she
stabbed herself to make it
look like he attacked her.
Robert Cline III was
already dead when police
arrived to investigate the
scene, the apparent vic-
tim of multiple gunshot
wounds.
Oviedo Police Lt. Mike
Beavers said Cline and Anita
Smithey had an "on-again,
off-again" relationship dur-
ing three years of marriage
and after their divorce.
That ended for good after
Beavers said it appeared
Cline visited Smithey at her
home on Corbin Court, and
the two got into an alter-
cation that quickly turned
violent.
Cline was shot at least
two times by a .38-caliber
revolver, and police say that
afterward Smithey stabbed
herself with a small folding
knife to make it appear like
self-defense.
Police were called to end
a domestic dispute between
the couple last November,
which launched an inves-
tigation into Cline possibly
obstructing justice. He was
never charged.

Women take charge in Seminole County


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE
Teenager Karen Mills dis-
covered a career by lis-
tening to her best friend's
father tell stories of cops
on the beat.
"I never thought about
the danger. It was all about
helping people," said Mills,
Commander of the East
Region, Seminole County
Sheriffs Office.
Twenty-four years later
she oversees one third of
Seminole County's uni-
formed law enforcement
division comprised of 100
personnel including Depu-
ty Sheriffs, COP volunteers,
sergeants, field officers,
and investigators.
Mills is even-tempered,
talks respectively even
to the bad guys, but her
phone, radio, asp, taser and


pistol are always within
reach. Her office is lined
with trophies and honors,
including the prestigious
Diana Turner Award of
Excellence Female Officer
of the Year in 1993.
Mills' canine partner
BOLO rode with her for
nine years working many
potential bomb threats
after 9-11. They were wel-
come participants at the
schools' DARE programs.
Her loyal partner has
passed away, and at times
she can still hear the clink
of his collar chains.
Mills' career advice to
young women considering
law enforcement, "Don't
try to be one of the guys.
Be yourself, stay mentally
strong and well trained
using all the tools avail-
able."

A future without water


Keep Seminole Beautiful talks about a rapidly shrinking supply that could leave the county dry


KRISTY VICKERY
GUEST REPORTER
Michael Barr carries his
passion for conserving
Florida's water like most
people carry a purse on
their arm it goes with
him wherever he goes.
"When I moved here ... I
mentioned the word envi-
ronment and people barely
knew what it meant," Barr
said. "Well, I found out I
was wrong they do know
what it means and they
have the same basic envi-
ronmental problems here."
The executive director
of Keep Seminole Beautiful,
Barr has been trying to
get these environmental
problems addressed ever
since he moved to Florida
32 years ago, and on April
22, he continued to pursue
his quest with the help of


Seminole County League of
Women Voters.
The event took place over
Italian cuisine at Sergio's
Italian Restaurant in
Sanford, but Italian cuisine
was not the main course
- water ruled the menu
on this Earth Day, as Barr,
discussed the problems of
serious water use and con-
servation challenges.
"Our current water prac-
tices are insane," Barr said.
"All decisions with regard to
water border on insulting...
and anybody with any level
of common sense should
understand we should be in
a major conservation sta-
tus, and we should be cre-
ating some serious innova-
tive ways of dealing with
the problem.
"Instead we're doing the
typical government thing

of, 'my terms over in two
years, four years, and that's
as far as my horizon goes."'
Barr is trying to change
Florida's water practices
and help people believe
that conserving the fresh
water we do have is more
important than most peo-
ple realize.
"It's so ludicrous that
we are walking down this
path when we don't have
to," Barr said. "And we are
all going to pay the price, a
horrible price."
He said that every day
we are losing valuable fresh
water because we are pump-
ing more water out of the
Florida aquifer than what is
being replenished.
"Now I'm not sure what
you would describe as
sustainability, but I know
what you would describe as


not sustainable, and that's
where you are taking more
than you are giving," Barr
said. "And eventually we are
going to run out."
He said one of the big
misconceptions on con-
serving water is that some
people think because we
have had rainy weather, we
have enough water, but this
is a misconception, because
only a very small percent-
age of fresh water perco-
lates into the aquifer, and
the minute amount that
actually reaches it will also
not be used for a hundred
years.
"And most of the high
percolated areas, we have
developed, and we develop
more every day," he said. "So
we get less and less water in
the aquifer every day."

dent Phyllis Currie said the
most astonishing thing she
learned during this event
was that valuable fresh
water is being pumped out
of the St. John's River, for
free, to be bottled and sold.
"This is crazy," Currie
said. "You have to make
them (our politicians)
accountable ... the best way
to get them to change their
behavior is to shame them
into it, or vote."
Environmental Studies
Center founder Pat Burkett
is also behind Barr all the
way.
"We are going to have
to look at ourselves are
we succeeding because we
are sustaining?" Burkett
said. "We can't keep pav-
ing over our land and using
up our land and using up
the water and saying it's all
in the means of progress,
and our economy's going
to die unless we do all these
things, our economy's going
to die if we can't supply the
water for what we have."
The president of League
of Women Voters said the
best way to conserve water
is to help others find a sim-
pler way to live.
"What you do impacts
the rest of the world," Jane
Lane said. "So live simply, so
others can simply live."

Time for a road trip? I'm in!


The weather is great now,
and school is not quite out,
so my friends and I have
decided it is road trip time.
This way you venture places
without all the children
on the road with families
- less traffic and ideal
weather. I am always ready
when someone mentions
a road trip just tell me
a date and time; I will be
there.
A road trip took place
last week with 17 dear
friends from the Oviedo
Woman's Club. It was off
to Deland's Woodland
Boulevard for shopping,
eating and enjoying the
friendship among us. It
was a road trip alright -
four SUVs heading north
on Interstate 4. We cer-
tainly had a fun day and
what even made it more
exciting was the fact that
we found free brochures
on spots to eat and shop
such as quilt stores, col-
lectables, antiques and
several boutiques. I don't
think we missed any of the
shops. Although we split
into groups, the shop own-
ers said, "Are you with the
group from Oviedo? Those
ladies just love to shop and
they are so nice." We felt
very welcome and certainly
will go again.


I believe the same ladies
have another road trip in
mind toward the Winter
Haven area, and yes, count
me in for whatever date
they decide. Some of the
gals from the Oviedo
Woman's Club like to end
their year of hard work
with fun and excitement.

Bojangles opens
Guess you all know the
new restaurant Bojangles
opened on May 3 at 5:30
a.m. Just a little too early
for me, but I understand
this place is lovely to look
at, and the food is good as
well.

Celery winners
I have been asked by lots
of our town's people who
won the Taste of Oviedo's
Citrus and Celery Cook-off.
So I checked with organizer
Megan Sladek, and she was
kind enough to furnish this
information:

goodies, but I sure am get-
ting hungry writing this.

Giving smiles
I am very happy to
announce all the excel-
lent work that the Oviedo
Woman's Club's Sewing
Group for Operation Smile
(a donor matching fund)
has done. As of last week,
the group raised $1,800 and
that equals seven opera-
tions. When doubled, that
means 15 operations for
children with clef pallet
surgery in foreign coun-
tries. Check out the Smile
Train Web site: www.smi-
letrain.org, Also, the gra-
cious women are showing
their support by making 30
quilts, 300 gowns and just
more than 100 smile bags
that these children will
need before and after their
operations. Wonderful
ladies! All of these items
will be sent to headquarters
this week.

Pizza time
Keeth Elementary's Annual

New officers and a barbeque
The Oviedo Historical
Society held its last general
meeting of the 2009-2010
year. During the business
meeting the following slate
of officers were elected:
President- Lars White, 1st
VP- Jim Richardson, 2nd
VP- Bea Gestrich, Secretary-
Mindy Starling, Treasurer-
E.P. Bruce and Historian-
Gary Scarboro along with
the two members-at-large-
Dawn Jenson and Janet
Foley. The meetings pro-
gram was History Awards
for the fourth grades of our
city's elementary schools.
The society had a full house
of 75 with participants,
parents, and society mem-
bers enjoying everything,
especially the light refresh-
ments.


Just a reminder, The
Historical Society is putting
on an outdoor event on
Saturday, May 22 from 11
a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Lawton
House. Bring a blanket or
chair and enjoy music of
all types blue grass, R&B,
gospel and more played by
local bands and groups. We
will also have eats burg-
ers, hot dogs, chips, drinks
and cookies all for $1
each. Hope to see you there.
Watch for upcoming fliers.

Happy Mother's Day
In a few days, we will be
celebrating Mother's Day,
all due to the efforts of
Anna M. Jarvis back in
the early 1900s. The first
Mother's Day services were
held on May 10, 1908, the
anniversary of her mother's
death. It was in 1914 that a
bill was passed by Congress
to establish the second
Sunday in May as National
Mother's Day. Happy
Mother's Day to all!

A thought
In a little lighter vain,
this is one of my favorite
thoughts, especially com-
ing from a child like my
great granddaughter. The
son said, "Dad, were you a
single parent before Mom
came to work for us?"

Mothers make us feel at home


By Karen McEnany-Phillips


May is known for Mother's
Day of course, and it brings
us joy and tears as we cele-
brate the commitment that
truly powers our planet,
giving us pause as to why
we call it mankind. It's hard
to put into words what it
means to have a devoted
mother or mother figure at
any point in our lives. Some
lose their mother too soon.
When it is illness such as
cancer or a random traffic
accident, there is an empti-
ness and yearning that feels
raw and resentful. When
mothers are taken from us
by forces such as addiction,
violence, divorce and aban-
donment, the pain feels
deeply personal.
Women who selflessly
fill in as mothers are so
gratefully appreciated
when they warm those
empty heart spaces. These


nurturers are everywhere
and come to the job with-
out expectation, sometimes
without experience.
They are colleagues,
acquaintances, teachers,
nurses, waitresses and
women of every profes-
sion. They are sisters, aunts,
neighbors and mothers of
our best friends who see us
shake off the loss as if it's
no big deal but who just
know we need a hug, a hot
meal and a shoulder. They
are women who may have
never seen an ultrasound
or experienced a labor pain
but who care enough to
give advice, lend a hand,
intervene if necessary,
throw together a dinner
and make a midnight run
to the pharmacy.
It even happens in the
animal kingdom. Did you

Rural Heritage Center BBQ
Don't forget the first annu-
al Rural Heritage Center
BBQ Saturday, May 15. It's
a great family event and a
chance to visit the RHC if
you haven't had an oppor-
tunity yet. This is where the
BrenDon Squares square
dancers have taken resi-
dence every week, where
classes from basket weav-
ing to quilting to pho-
tography and calligraphy
have been happening since
January.


This is hopefully the
place that our next gen-
erations will learn about
rural traditions that are
still alive and sustainable.
This event is new and will
also be a fundraiser to help
motivate more of us to sup-
port this fragile vision that
many have worked so hard
to bring to reality. Come
inside and see the beauti-
ful wood floor that was
made and laid by our own
Geneva residents, and enjoy
the rooms, quilts, antiques
and history the center
represents. Volunteers are
always needed to help with
repair, construction, resto-
ration and administration,
so come out for the fun
and fellowship and find a
niche that suits you. Find
more information at genev-
aschoolhouse.org.

July 4th Geneva
Parade and Festival
It won't be long until the
July 4th Geneva Parade
and Festival is here. This
year it will be celebrated on
Saturday, July 3 and plans
have been under way for a
few weeks. Volunteers run


the event and more are
always needed. Come to the
next meeting on Saturday,
June 5 at 8:30 a.m. in the
Geneva Community Center
if you want to help out.
This parade and festival is
one of the few in Central
Florida that features horses,
tractors, bike brigades,
volunteer marching band,
fire trucks, local celebrities
and, of course, floats that
compete for prizes. The
theme this year is Geneva,
Southern Style, and I hear
there might be fireworks
courtesy of the Geneva
Baptist Church in the
evening. It's a not-to-be-
missed event, so come out
and help make it happen!

Fun with edible flowers


Pretty, easy, fun, and tasty are all
descriptive of the nasturtium, a
plant all of us should be growing
in our gardens. The brightly col-
ored flowers of red, orange, yellow
and peach liven up our landscape
and provide many benefits to the
grower. The ultimate goal is the
peppery flavored flowers, but there
are several reasons to include this
crop in every garden plan.
Seeds are commonly available
or you can save your own. The
large quarter inch seeds, placed a
half inch deep in a well-drained


soil planting mix, germinate in a
week. I plant six to eight seeds in
an eight-inch pot set in a partially
shaded area, such as under a cit-
rus tree. In a few weeks, thin and
transplant the spouted seeds to a
garden bed while leaving a few in
the pot. Moderate fertilization and
irrigation are all that are required
for a successful crop. I always have
nasturtiums in several phases of
growth around the garden.
As the plants grow, the round
leaves trail off the flexible stems.
Hanging baskets are an optional


Seminole Voice


growing method. In five to six
weeks, flower buds appear, with
a hint of color peaking out of the
tip. The next day, bright colored
flowers up to two inches in diam-
eter will be nestled amongst the
foliage.
Companion planting nastur-
tiums in the garden helps to repel
several varieties of beetles and cat-
erpillars. Squash grown in Florida
is especially susceptible to numer-
ous insect pests repelled by nastur-
tiums. This pest control is also true
for the brassicas, which include
broccoli, collards, mustards, and
radishes. Imagine the panorama
of brightly colored flowers dotting
the garden, knowing the pests are
being kept at bay by this pretty
subterfuge.
The entire plant is edible. Pinch
the flower's stem about an inch
back. The leaves can be harvested
this same way. Provide a safe col-
lection basket for your edible flow-
er harvest, as they are quite fragile.
I'm all the time savoring a flower
in the fresh air of the garden for
the thrill of the immediate burst
of flavor. Keep the harvest shaded
and cool. Rinse the flowers ever so


lightly to avoid bruising the col-
ored petals. (No wonder you can
never find nasturtiums available at
a retail produce counter.)
The bright colors top a salad of
mixed garden greens surprisingly
well. Don't mix the flowers into
the salad since this will damage
the effect. The leaves mixed with
the other salad greens add their
subtle peppery flavor. The leaves
are also an excellent addition to
stir fry blends, although the flow-
ers wouldn't survive the wok at all.
By protecting the plants from
the extremes of winter and sum-
mer weather, a nasturtium crop
can be grown year round in
Central Florida. With the motiva-
tions of beauty, companionship,
flavor, and just plain fun, every
gardener could be taking part in
this joy of growing. I do, and so
should you!

scene as a new EMT. "It was
chaotic but being able to
intervene, I realized what I
wanted to do."
Mims said fire services
have changed from the
traditional picture of a fire
truck and Dalmatian to
an all-hazard emergency
response operation which
includes medical, auto
crashes, special hazards,
spills and technical rescues.
"You never know what
you'll walk into," said Mims,
whose responsibilities
include 400 personnel, 18
stations, and 28,000 service
calls annually.
"It's not about being the
woman in charge, you have
to set vision and commu-
nicate that to key people,
empowering them to be
leaders. It's not a one-per-
son show."
Command structure
and chain of command is
critical. "It's imperative we
respect it, otherwise we risk
losing the edge in a chaotic
situation," she said.
She admits that drops in
funding and resources can
affect morale.
"I have to always think
about what we can do to
take care of the team who
takes care of the commu-
nity," she said.
Her career advice to
girls: "Find something that
bothers you and try to fix it.
No matter what career you
choose, keep your princi-
ples and never give up your
integrity."
Mark Oakes, SCFD Assis-
tant Chief of Operations
said Mims had a lot on her
plate when she became
chief.
"During her tenure,
Chief Mims has had to take
a quickly changing orga-
nization and reshape it to
prepare for the future while
maintaining and building
traditions," Oakes said.
Maria Santana, interim
director of University of
Central Florida's Women's
Studies Program, believes
the keys to success for
young women in any career


are leadership and commu-
nication. Girls under 8 years
old are vocal and enjoy
being noticed. But later they
doubt themselves, become
uncomfortable in leader-
ship and are bombarded by
media influences.
"We need to cultivate
strong hearts and minds
so they can be empowered
at whatever career choice
they make regardless of
gender. Programs like Girl
Scout and the UCF Young
Women's Leadership Pro-
gram can give them con-
fidence. I believe our girls
hold great promise."

Chief of Police Val B.
Demings, Orlando Police
Department
Florida State University
Criminal Justice major Val
B. Demings viewed police
work as a way to pay for
law school but she quickly
realized that rescuing oth-
ers was her calling. Patrol-
ling the streets, she learned
a fundamental truth she
shares with recruits today.
"When people are in crisis,
they call us to make things
right, that's what I love
about what we do."
Her historic appoint-
ment in December 2007
gives her responsibility
for over 1,000 personnel
including 750 sworn offi-
cers. In her 26th year in
law enforcement Demings
strives to create an environ-
ment where the communi-
ty is engaged and people
are motivated to do their
best.
Her career advice to
young women, "Don't
focus on who is in the field,
focus on preparing yourself
through education, train-
ing and volunteer oppor-
tunities, like our Explorer/
Cadet program for exam-
ple."
How does Demings stay
balanced? "I refuel with
meditation, yoga, worship
and strong support from
close friends and family."

ITT THIS WEEK in human history

Lafayette Ron Hubbard, more commonly known as L. Ron Hubbard,

Health." The book quickly caught on and eventually led to the belief
IN T E R E S T .1-J, system known today as Scientology.



Midway molding bright futures

Zymetris Acree is one of many benefitting from the arts school, which just dedicated its new campus


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE
When Zymetris Acree
walked into Midway
Elementary school nearly
four years ago, the kinder-
gartener was quiet and shy.
But RamonaAcree recog-
nized her son's musical tal-
ent shared by his two older
brothers who sang with
their mother and grand-
mother in church, even if
he didn't.
"We couldn't even pay
Zymetris to sing," said
his mother who grew up
in Midway and attended
Midway Elementary.
But everything changed
for Zymetris after expe-
riencing magnet school
Midway Elementary's
Artful Learning teaching
model that incorporates
arts and creativity into the
academic curriculum. He
also received encourage-
ment from teachers like
Ivy Maxwell who teaches
musical theater and piano.
Maxwell encouraged her
young students to try small
solo performances in class
and to participate in class-
room plays.
"He grew bolder with
each one," Maxwell said.
It didn't matter that the
school was over six decades
old and stood in a histor-
ic but economically poor
community. It didn't mat-
ter that a new campus was
still years away, temporarily
confined to a flat blueprint.
Each year Zymetris grew a
little braver as he learned
about creative movement,


instrumental music, vocal
instruction and art.
Nine-year old Zymetris
is now about to complete
third grade and he sings
with confidence in both
solo and group performanc-
es. "Now we can't stop him
from singing," his mother
said.
Maxwell admires his abil-
ity to focus. "Zymetris' voice
is versatile and mature. He
can sing high and low notes
with runs and rips, and he's
willing to take risks with
his voice."
Zymetris is an exam-
ple of Principal Sharon
Tanner's mission, "Growing
scholars at Midway." Using
a model developed by com-
poser Leonard Bernstein,
students experience four
elements of learning: expe-
rience, inquiry, creativity
and reflection. The method
improves academic perfor-
mance and instills a love of
learning. Zymetris can read
at a fifth grade level, which
his homeroom and lan-
guage arts teacher, Barbara
Kellar describes as 'quite
common" at Midway. With
this type of learning model
students can progress at an
accelerated pace up to an
eighth grade level.
But Zymetris is still a typ-
ical boy who shares a room
with his older brother, loves
mac 'n cheese, video games,
superhero books, and his
chihuahua Charlie.
Singing comes naturally
to Zymetris but bragging
about it does not. Maxwell
describes him as "humble
and a wonderful young man


with a fantastic attitude."
Kellar and Maxwell
applaud Zymetris' par-
ents for always being on
hand for his performanc-
es. "Zymetris' parents are
extremely supportive, they
never miss a beat."
Ramona remembers her
parents' faces in the audi-
ence when she performed
in the Midway chorus. "I
was shy too. It's important
for me to be there for him
because my parents were
there for me."
Each class incorporates
a Master Work art form like
Kellar's third graders who
have learned about Frank
Lloyd Wright's Falling Water
house. "They learn that
building a house is more
than leveling trees."
The students also learn
the balance of man and
nature through an active
earthworm compost pile in
their classroom.
Kellar said Midway stu-
dents don't shoot hands
up in the air when asked a
question. They are required
to spend a few moments
thinking about the question
in order to give thoughtful
answers a process that
works for Zymetris.
"This school has opened
him up," Kellar said. "He
doesn't mind giving answers
in class and he backs up his
answers in more depth. He
has gained academic confi-
dence from his singing abil-
ity. It takes courage to come
out on stage."
During the dedication
of the new campus at the
end of April, Mary Larsen,

mother of a Midway stu-
dent, thanked the teach-
ers and staff "for teaching
my child to think, which is
priceless."
Zymetris performed
"Imagine" with three other
students at the school's offi-
cial dedication on April 28
and he recently performed
the entire song solo for the
first time for an event at the
Sanford Student Museum.

"Our new school is big-
ger and the classrooms
look better. We can take
dance, music and art class-
es, but we also study math
and reading," said Zymetris,
who wants to be a profes-
sional gospel singer.
Zymetris will perform in
this year's dinner theater
"Thoroughly Modern Millie
Junior" the first year that
third graders are included.
Kellar believes in his
future. "Zymetris is one of
those children who will be
very successful because he
is confident now."
Midway Elementary
School of the Arts is open
to any student in Seminole
County through an applica-
tion process. By the end of
April the school had accept-
ed 205 applications out
of 300 submitted. Midway
Elementary actively works
with community artists
and arts organizations to
provide additional resourc-
es for gifted students. The
Steinway Society for exam-
ple donates pianos to select
students for free as long as
they continue piano les-
sons.
Tanner thanked the
Midway community and the
Seminole County School
Board for supporting both
the old and the new cam-
pus and to her surprise
the cafeteria/auditorium
was named in her honor,
The Dr. Sharon Tanner
Performance Hall.

SENIORS I Grandmas typically don't mind caring for their children's children


< continued from the front page

shopping, out to eat and to
the movies.
Program facilitator
Sharon Warner said that the
grandmothers' situations
are all different, but a lot of
them end up taking care of
their grandchildren because


of the parents' drug use.
This was the case for
Rounette Fulse, 80, who
raised a 22-year-old grand-
child and is currently rais-
ing her 16-year-old grand-
son. Her daughter was on
drugs and living in a house
with other drug addicts
when Jalen, 16, was 2. Fulse


got the police involved and
took over custody of the
children then. Things were
hard, but Fulse was deter-
mined to give Jalen a good
life.
"Even with all the diffi-
culties, I put the baby first,"
she said. "He wasn't respon-
sible for what he was going
through."
She also had to adapt to
the new parenting ideals.
"The times were so differ-
ent for when I was raising
Jalen, from when I was rais-
ing my children; now there's
no spanking and scolding,"
she laughed.
Fulse took parent-
ing classes at Valencia
Community College, but the
support group also offers
help in this area. At a certain
age, disciplining becomes


more difficult.
"When you're older,
you don't have that kind
of energy, so some need
other ideas to circumvent
some behaviors," said Diane
Payne, assistant facilitator.
While grandparents do
have some struggles, the
experience of the child
isn't necessarily different or
worse from a child raised by
their parents, said Kimberly
Renk, an associate professor
at the University of Central
Florida's psychology depart-
ment.
The grandmothers are
generally happy to take care
of their grandchildren.
"The grandchildren bring
movement and life into the
home," Payne said.
Fulse thinks she success-
fully raised Jalen. He has


a job, works at his church
and plays on the Boone
High School football team.
He hopes to be a profes-
sional football player and
Fulse said she encourages
him all the way. His mother
has lived with them for the
past year and is helping to
raise him.
For Friend, the ending
isn't so happy. She worries
about Ciera and looks to
the day she can pay off her
debt and get a place of her
own, one to share with her
granddaughter. To those
who tell her to give up, she
talks about the day Ciera
was born.
"Other kids have fathers
and mothers this child
has no one; ever since the
day she opened her eyes
she's been looking at me."

Race for cancer funds on May 16


COURTNEY GILMARTIN
THE VOICE
After Beate Johnson of
Longwood returned from a
cruise with her husband in
2001, she noticed her stom-
ach looking a little fuller
than usual. Too much cruise
food, she thought, and she
went on a diet.
Still bloated weeks later,
Beate realized that some-
thing was seriously wrong
and went to the emergency
room. It was there she was
told she had stage-three
ovarian cancer.
"I thought it was a death
sentence," said Beate. "'Can-
cer' is such a scary word."
After undergoing a hys-
terectomy and completing
chemotherapy, Beate is now
cancer free. However, with
the likelihood for ovarian
cancer recurrence at more
than 70 percent, Beate
knows that she's not in the
clear, and has used her ex-
perience with the disease to
help other cancer patients.
"I had no idea about this
illness and its symptoms,"
said Beate. "I wanted to help
educate women about ovar-
ian cancer."
Beate joined the Ovarian
Cancer Alliance of Florida,
a non-profit organization
that aims to increase aware-
ness of the disease and pro-
vide support to victims, sur-
vivors and their families.
The Longwood-based
OCAF helps to fund re-
search locally at the Florida


Hospital Cancer Institute
and at M.D. Anderson Can-
cer Center, which recently
received a $360,000 grant
to research ovarian cancer.
OCAF will host its sec-
ond annual Teal Ribbon 5k
Run & Walk at 7:30 a.m. on
Sunday, May 16, at Oviedo
Marketplace to raise funds
to continue ovarian cancer
study and encourage wom-
en to be aware of the dis-
ease's symptoms.
"It's a mean, ugly disease,
and we want to do some-
thing to raise awareness,"
said Marsha Boesch, an ad-
ministrative assistant at
OCAF and an ovarian can-
cer survivor. "What we're
doing is directly benefiting
the people in this area."
According to Carol
Dierksen, communications
manager for OCAF, ovarian
cancer is the eighth most
common cancer for wom-
en. However, it's not on
people's radar like breast
cancer, for example, be-
cause there aren't as many
ovarian cancer survivors,
she said.
"Unfortunately with
ovarian cancer, most wom-
en are diagnosed in the late
stage, and most of those
women won't be alive in
five years," Dierksen said.
"We do lose a lot of peo-
ple, and we don't have the
numbers of survivors and
happy stories that breast
cancer has," Boesch added.
Although the five-year
survival rate for early diag-

Last year's Teal Ribbon 5k was the first year of the event, held at the Oviedo mall.


nosis of ovarian cancer is
93 percent, common symp-
toms for ovarian cancer
seem ordinary, and can in-
clude bloating, indigestion
and urinary problems.
"Knowing the symptoms
and knowing your body is
paramount for early diag-
nosis," said Dierkson.
OCAF Board President
Dr. Jasmin Johnson, Beate's
daughter, said many wom-
en are also under the false-
impression that Pap smear
tests, which can detect cer-
vical cancer, can also dis-
cover ovarian cancer.
Jasmin said ovarian
cancer can be diagnosed
through blood tests, MRIs
and trans-vaginal ultra
sounds, but that those are


typically responses to a
medical need, and not pre-
cautious screenings.
"You know your body
better than anybody else,"
Jasmin said. "Be in tune
with the changes in your
body, and alert doctors as
soon as you realize some-
thing is not right."
Last year's 5k had more
than 200 participants, ac-
cording to OCAF, and they
are hoping to triple the
turnout this year. Boesch
said the event is the perfect
way for friends and families
to support and honor their
loved ones.
"We want to be active
and get the word out," she
said.

For the fifth time this sea-
son, the Knights have lost
a three-game series with
a conference foe. They
dropped two of three games


to Memphis last weekend,
putting their overall confer-
ence record at 27-19 overall
and 7-11 in Conference USA

run deficit and draw even
with the Memphis Tigers on
Sunday, in a desperate bid to
win the series.
UCF had been behind
since the fifth inning in the
wild, back and forth game
in which the game was tied
or the lead changed seven
times.
But after picking up four
runs in a dramatic bottom
of the ninth rally, Austin
Johnston, who had batted
.500 and driven in a run in
the game before, struck out


with two runners in scoring
position, ending the rally on
the verge of a victory.
A long rally by the Tigers
in the top of the 10th only
ended when UCF's Brennan
Dobbins got Memphis'
Adam McClain to fly out
with the bases loaded, but
by then the damage was
already done with a run
scored on the Tigers in the
lead.
The Knights managed to
put together another rally
to put two on and a run-


ner in scoring position with
two out, but Ryan Breen also
struck out with the winning
runner on base. Breen had
a miserable series as the
Knights' designated hitter,
picking up just two hits in
14 plate appearances.
Having lost all but one
of their series against con-
ference foes this season,
the Knights get a welcome
respite with three non-con-
ference games starting at
6:30 p.m. next Tuesday ver-
sus Jacksonville.

And our flexible scheduling offers convenient, same-day and
evening appointments. No prescription is needed to get a screening
mammogram. It's highly accurate, causes little discomfort and is
part of the quality care you can count on just minutes from home.
