Resignation

stands

ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

There are
no take
backs with
a resigna-
tion, Oviedo
City Attor-
ney Lon-
nie Groot
said, and
so Mayor
Mary Lou
Andrews will have to resign
despite her change of
heart.
The situation created an
ambiguity that the mayor
said she hopes will be
cleared up in the future.
"When a person resigns
and then they rescind, the
charter is silent," Andrews
said.
"I guess nobody's ever
really explored what to
do if this situation were to
occur."
The mayor resigned on
June 28 and then officially
retracted her resignation
on July 5. Andrews had sent
out a mass e-mail to staff
that day, stating that she
would resign for "family
reasons."
She had wanted to care
for her ailing husband, she
said, but in the ensuing sev-
eral days what appeared to
be a dire prognosis for Dan
Andrews' health changed
for the better, and the mayor

She is continuing her work
throughout the race, with
a priority on economy and

tinually focusing efforts in
small business, NASA, veter-
an's affairs, and public edu-
cation. She is against near

well, drilling and doesn't
think we are prepared for
it. She is committed to sup-
porting veterans and help-
ing them, particularly with
the new Orlando VA Medi-
cal Center, which will open
sometime in 2012. Kosmas
feels that she has met the


commitment she has made
to community and is con-
tinuing to focus on issues
that affect the community.
"We are beginning to see

Acting troupe gets reinforcements

New York's Little People's Theatre Company partners with Winter Springs Performing Arts


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER
After nearly losing their home at
the start of this year, the Winter
Springs Performing Arts program
is going strong and said last week
it partnering with the New York-
founded Little People's Theatre
Company.
In September, the Theatre Com-
pany, a long-standing scripted
improvisational company geared
toward children ages 3-9, will make
its debut at the venue, aptly named
The Stage.
The Stage is the home of the
Winter Springs Performing Arts
program, founded in 2006 by CEO
and Program Manager Shanda
Batchelor.
Batchelor will co-produce stage
productions with Theater Com-
pany Producing Director Sandra
Lacey every weekend that will
include childhood fairytales with
a twist such as "Little Red Riding
Hood" and "Hansel and Gretel".
The shows encourage audience
participation.
"[We're trying to] bring back to
the stage that childhood wonder
and magic to let them experience
all the fun and joy of being a child,"
Lacey said. "[It's all about] engaging
them and instilling in them a love
for the arts that they will pass on to
the next generation."


Lacey said this partnership
came about because of a mutual
goal both organizations want a
"self-sustainable theater company
in Winter Springs" and to provide
youngsters with a theater experi-
ence that can make them appre-
ciate the arts and maybe pursue
them one day.
Batchelor said, "It's a natural
connection to what we do already
in teaching children the ropes of
putting on a full-length stage pro-
duction, except now the actors on
stage will be challenged and be
given valuable lessons in their craft.
... it's wonderful that such a presti-
gious company from New York is
coming to little Winter Springs."
The actors, age 12 and older,
performing in the shows will have
to be prepared and flexible with
their scripted lines because they'll
have to anticipate and incorporate
what the young audience will say
and do, giving the actors valuable
training and range to their abilities
through the use of improvisational
techniques.
Batchelor said she really liked
how the Theater Company targets
a specific audience that the Per-
forming Arts program didn't always
have shows for, and they provide
opportunities for older acting stu-
dents to try something different.
Lacey said she had never heard
of Batchelor or her program until

The Winter Springs Performing Arts Center had to stage an emergency fundraiser to survive at the
start of the year, above, but has gained a willing partner in the Little People's Theater Company.


she read an article in the Semi-
nole Voice about the financial woes
the program was enduring. That's
when she decided to check The
Stage out as a possible home for a
play she was writing.
After seeing The Stage, Lacey told
Ken Eulo, New York playwright and
director of the Theater Company,
about it, and they both thought it
would make a wonderful home for
the company, which operated 34
years off-Broadway as a part of the
Courtyard Playhouse Foundation,
before its New York branch closed
down a few years ago.
Eulo said the shows from the
company are still occasionally put
on across the country.
Lacey said she was granted rights
to the company and wanted to help
Batchelor out, making way for a
"mutually beneficial" partnership.
Batchelor said she's delighted
for the partnership. She hopes hav-
ing continual shows on a regular
basis will help generate awareness


and revenue for the Performing
Arts program.
The motto for the Theater Com-
pany is "to put the third dimen-
sion back into your children's lives
through live theater."
"If we don't do this," Eulo said, "I
can't imagine live theater existing
anymore. It's so worthwhile for a
lot of reasons, but miracles happen
when kids start communicating
with one another."

New school coming?

Charter school could open by Winter Springs High


KRISTY VICKERY
GUEST REPORTER
The Winter Springs Commission
on Monday got a second look at a
proposal to relocate an elementary
charter school from Longwood to
the city's Town Center.
The school, Choices in Learn-
ing, has outgrown its current loca-
tion and is looking to expand to
a 9-acre site on the north side of
State Road 434 at the western edge
of the Town Center. The city has not
yet approved the project's develop-
ment agreement.
"In my view, this project is going
to represent a very unique addi-
tion to our Town Center and to our
city," Commissioner Gary Bonner
said. "....there's a lot more work to
be done, which means there's a lot
more money to spend before they
get to a final approval stage."
If a development agreement
is reached for the 25,000-square-
foot building footprint, which
will exceed the standard size for


the Center, it will be on its way to
becoming the first civic site in Win-
ter Springs.
The charter school is considered
public because it receives its fund-
ing from Seminole County Public
Schools. As a public facility, it would
be tax exempt, meaning the city
would lose out on about $40,000 a
year in property taxes.
"And anytime one ventures down
the path of a first of its kind, there's
always the unknown that goes
along with that," Bonner said.
Matt Breene, president of Breene
Construction Services, hired by
the Choices in Learning, expressed
concern with the commissioners
calling the project a "unique" one.
He said it is in the code that it is a
permitted-use project.
"The only thing that is differ-
ent or unique is that the code...
says that buildings permitted great-
er than 20,000 square feet are not
permitted in the Town Center by

should be elected because
he has passion, enthusi-
asm and knowledge of the
issues. Like Kosmas, Partyka
wants health care reform
and has been fighting for it
since the early 1990s. But
he says we need to make
it better and more effi-
cient to help manage the
deficit. "[Democrats and
Republicans] need to work
together on this," he said.
"You need someone who
can be persuasive and can
work well with both sides."
Partyka said he is that per-
son. Should he be elected
his focus will be "jobs, jobs,
jobs and economy." He says
that he understands the
economy from the business
and entrepreneurial sides.
But he also wants to focus
on the space coast as well,
something he says Kos-
mas isn't doing. He wants
to bring in business incu-
bators to help "get things
going again." For more

In the Republican primary:
Adams
Sandy Adams, a career
Orange County Sheriffs
deputy, has spent eight
years in the Florida House
for District 33. The Oviedo
Republican says she has a
record of proving what she
says and has a record of vot-
ing conservative. She said
Kosmas has total out-of-
control spending, especial-
ly with health care reform
and the proposed Cap and
Trade energy tax. Instead,
Adams wants to shrink
government and reduce
spending. She says we need
strong conservative leader-
ship and that we need to
"get the government out of
the everyday lives of people
and businesses." Adams is
opposed to the health care


reform and doesn't want to
ban offshore drilling. Adams
has endorsements from
various veterans groups,
Florida Right to Life and
Florida Police Benevolent
Association among others.
For more information on
Sandy Adams and upcom-
ing events, visit www.san-
dyadams.com

Diebel
Karen Diebel, a former vice
mayor and city commis-
sioner of Winter Park, says
she can take the discipline
she used to reduce taxes and
spending in Winter Park
to Washington to do the
same. "I am a problem solv-
er," she said as to what sets
her aside from other candi-
dates. Diebel is opposed to


the health
care reform
and the Cap
and Trade energy tax. If
elected, she wants to repeal
"Obamacare" and replace
it with an economic model
that decreases costs and
increases medical outcome,
something she says Kos-
mas is doing the opposite
of. Diebel, who categorizes
herself as a "technology
person," also wants to serve
on the Energy and Com-
merce Committee to create
jobs in the district. She is a
supporter of offshore drill-
ing, as long it is done safely.
Diebel is having meetings


with supporters and doing
door-to-door visits within
her surrounding communi-
ties. She has support and
endorsements from former
Arkansas Gov. Mike Hucka-
bee and Congressman Brian
Bilbray among others. For

Diebel and upcoming

Garcia
Meet Tom Garcia, a
career naval officer.
Despite his lack
of experience
in political
office, Gar-
cia feels
that he
has
the

/







right
tools
to get the
job done
correctly.
"I'm not a rich
guy trying to buy
my election," he
said. Garcia said he
is completely against
everything incumbent
Kosmas has been doing,
including her stimulus
voting and flip-flop on
"Obamacare". Garcia says
he is taking a constitutional
platform and that "we need
to follow the simple road
map set before us by our
founding fathers." Garcia
wants to shrink the size of
the government to elimi-
nate the billions of dollars
that he says they are wast-
ing by doing nothing. His is

MAYOR I Persampiere to take office Aug. 2

reconsidered the move.
By July 7, City Attor-
ney William Colbert's law
firm issued an 11-page rul-
ing that Andrews couldn't
reverse her own resigna-
tion.
"It's gonna be a hard
transition away from
mayor," Andrews said. "I
just really enjoyed being
the mayor and tackling the
problems."
Andrews will vacate her


seat on July 31, and on Aug.
2 Deputy Mayor Dominic
Persampiere will be sworn
in as mayor, immediately
vacating his Council chair,
which will then need to be
filled by appointment.
That seat will likely be
taken by a former coun-
cilman, Persampiere said,
though that decision pro-
cess will only begin after
Aug. 2.
"It has to go through a
whole bunch of different
steps," Persampiere said.


"It takes about 30 days to
fill the position. Nobody
has approached me about
being appointed."
As for Andrews, she said
she's looking forward to
new challenges beyond the
mayor's seat.
"Hopefully I'll just be
working, living life, just tak-
ing one step after the other,"
Andrews said. "You just take
it in perspective and go on
and do what you're going
to do."

Avoid the sun while still having fun


Now that summer is here

a lot of my friends out and
about. We get together in
the mornings, hide in the
afternoon and are out for

I usually work in the yard
early afternoons, but not
now. I leave the yard person
to have the pleasure. Stay
cool!

Back in the day
I was reading from a book
I received a few years
ago called "Early Days of
Seminole County" put out
by the Seminole County
Historical Commission. I
thought I would include a
few statements taken from
the book about our area
that you might find inter-
esting:

"The community of
Oviedo numbered 500
when Seminole County
was carved out of Orange
County in 1913 but, by
its 1925 incorporation, it
had grown to 800. Today
Oviedo is home to thou-
sands and crossroads for
the old and the new."

"Winter Springs is the
newest city in Seminole
County. It was originally
incorporated as the Village
of North Orlando in 1959;
it then changed its name
to Winter Springs in 1973.


It takes a large area on the
southwest side of Lake
Jesup on land that was
sparsely settled until the
start of the 1960s."

"Did you know that golf
got its start in Seminole
County in 1921 when the
City of Sanford purchased
property for the Mayfair
Course? It hosted PGA tour-
naments in 1955 and 1958
and the LPGA tournament
in 1959. Professionals who
played in these tourna-
ments included Sam Snead,
Julius Boros, Gene Sarazen,
Babe Zaharias and Arnold
Palmer. The oldest continu-
ously operating golf course
in Seminole County is the
Rolling Hills Golf Course
of Longwood/Altamonte,
which opened in 1925.
Today Seminole County has
at least a dozen public and
private courses."

"Progress always involves
risks. You can't steal second
base and keep your foot on
first." -Frederick B. Wilcox

Geneva cranks up the heat


By Karen McEnany-Phillips


Small towns are sometimes
lazy in the summer, but
Geneva seems busier than
ever this July. Thanks to
everyone who attended the
fantastic 4th of July Parade
and Festival and to Divine
Providence for the rain-free
celebration. Thanks also to
the many sponsors, leaders,
committees and foot sol-
diers volunteers all who
poured time, energy, sweat
and commitment to make
it another big success. What
great memories!
Kudos to Lori Damico,
Kristi Moore and the staff
of Maplewood Farms and
Seneca Oaks Farm for
their leadership on the
equestrian portion of the
parade and contest. You
followed beautifully in the
awesome 'hoof prints' of
Chuck and Marie Tatman.
Congratulations to Gracie
Yarborough, who with
her cute boots won best
Southern Style, Michelle
Tournour for most original
and Linda Harnch dressed
like Betsy Ross congratu-
lations ladies to you and
your trusty steeds.
Great job to our
float winners First
Place: Geneva Village
Homemakers Mens
Auxiliary "Sailing Ship",
Second Place: Church of
the Nazarene, and Best
Commercial Float: Focal
Point Nursery. Kids bicycle
brigade winners included,
First Place: "No Place Like
Home" by Caley Gustafson,
Second Place: Erika and
Sara Husselman, and
Third Place: Cassandra
Carmichael.
It was a day of politi-
cians, pony rides and
prayers for our country,
including a patriotic pig


named Scarlet, who was
a true diva in her photo
close-up. She was a big hit.
How awesome was the
Greater Geneva Grande
Award Marching Band and
the delicious food, includ-
ing the new pulled pork
and locally crafted pizza.

Remembering Stetson
July also brings a time of
reflection as we remember
Seminole County Eugene
A. Gregory, "Stetson," for
whom this column was
founded. The law enforce-
ment community comes
together every July 8
on the anniversary of
Deputy Gregory's pass-
ing to remember the five
fallen Deputy Sheriffs from
Seminole County. It seemed
a larger-than-usual gath-
ering that met at the Law
Enforcement Memorial
under the warm morning
sun.
I loved the words of
Reverend Bob Gregory,
brother of Geneva's fallen
protector, who said, "We
find heroes who claimed
their ground with dignity
and respect, who viewed
their profession as more of
a calling than a job. Their
days started quiet and rou-
tine, then turned chaotic.
We honor their example
and we must do justice to
their memories." It was a
beautiful ceremony that
enveloped these deputies'
families and honored the
quiet and courageous com-
mitment that every mem-
ber of the law enforcement
community makes every
day, especially officers in
the field.
The precision honor
guards and flag ceremony,
the 21-gun salute, the


bagpiper that played the
haunting "Amazing Grace"
and the trumpeter that
played "Taps" all provided
moving symbols of honor
and reverence to men and
women who are willing to
make the ultimate sacrifice
for their community.

Mark your calendar
Two upcoming events are
worthy of marking your

From m


Tom Carey -


Everyone can grow peppers


Every gardener has favorite variet-
ies and plants, and one of mine
happens to be peppers (Solanaceae
Capsicum). Ease of production,
nutritional value and gastronomi-
cal diversity easily make peppers
an important crop in most coun-
tries. Grown in tropical America
for thousands of years, pepper cul-
tivation rapidly spread worldwide
after being discovered by European
explorers.
What we taunt our taste buds
with when daring a hot pepper is


the chemical capsaicin, measured
in Scoville heat units. Bell peppers
rate a zero on the Scoville scale
since they don't even have the
genetic instructions to produce
capsaicin. Working our way up the
hot pepper hierarchy, a pimento
pepper earns a 100 Scoville rat-
ing, Poblano Mexican chili a
2,000, Jalapeno a 5,000, Cayenne
a 40,000, Bird's eye Thai pepper
a 100,000, Datil peppers from
St. Augustine get a 250,000. The
world's hottest pepper, the bhut


jolokia (ghost pepper) of India and
South Asia earns 1 million Scoville,
police pepper spray 5 million, and
pure crystal capsaicin ranks 15 mil-
lion Scoville units.
I obtain pepper seeds from
every source imaginable: ripe fruit
from my own plants, grocery store
produce (look for ripe, colorful
fruit), trades with other garden-
ers and numerous seed catalogs
(check out Redwood City Seed
Co.). Plant the seed in warm pot-
ting soil four times the diameter
of the seed. Pepper seeds take one
to two weeks to germinate, so be
patient. Once sprouted, gently
move the sprouts to a larger con-
tainer. Like so many crops, I find
working with transplants much
more successful than direct seed-
ing to the outdoor soil.
Pepper plants may live for more
than two years if kept from freez-
ing or flooding. With this longer
lifespan, tying up garden space can
limit cultivation options. I grow
six pepper plants in a 3-gallon pot,
which can be moved when needed.
Although the roots may grow out
the drain holes into surrounding


soil, the plants will recover if lifted.
Another trick I've found is to nest
the pepper pot into a larger pot
containing 1 inch of soil. This extra
pot insulates the roots from direct
solar radiation and extremes of
cold weather.
How many pepper varieties
do you grow? Bell pepper pol-
len becomes impotent above 90
degrees Fahrenheit, causing fruit
set to fail. Sweet banana peppers
continue to set fruit in the Florida
summer, providing a viable crop in
our off-season. Many hot pepper
varieties also grow well through
our summers. As peppers ripen,
they display a spectrum of color
and their vitamin count goes
through the roof. So wait for your
peppers to color up before harvest,
regulating harvest to when the
crop is truly most nutritious.

Sparking interest in tech jobs


SARAH WILSON
THE VOICE
Two middle-schoolers sat
hunched together, eyes
fixated on the computer
screen mid-morning on
Friday.
One worked to design
his own personalized Tiger
Woods persona in "Tiger
Woods PGA Tour 2011",
while the other reached to
his left and clicked diligent-
ly through a spreadsheet
on a neighboring screen.
Ranking the game in terms
of effectiveness, overall
experience and innovation
with tallies in the spread-
sheet, the boys continued
through the game.
This is more than just an
average summer day spent
video gaming. Not only are
the boys surrounded by 18
of their peers, all paired
off working on the same
activity around the room,
they are sitting in the very
building that game was
created Electronic Arts
(EA) Tiburon Studios in
Maitland.
These kids are doing
more than just gaming; they
are learning what it's like to
work as electronic artists.
Funded by Workforce
Central Florida, in part-
nership with EA, Lockheed
Martin and NASA, and
directed by doctorate
students in College of
Education at University of
Central Florida, these 20
students from the Villages
Charter School are the fifth
and final group of students
to attend this year's STEM
(science, technology, engi-
neering and math) camp.
"The purpose of the
STEM camps is to take kids
from diverse populations


and expose them to STEM
careers," UCF camp coor-
dinator Mercedes Sopillo
said, "because sadly enough
in our country we don't
have enough people study-
ing STEM careers to fulfill
the needs that we're going
to have in the future."
Jacqueline Rodriguez,
also one of the camp coor-
dinators, said that 50 per-
cent of all those studying
for a doctorate in STEM-
related fields in the U.S.
are foreign students. This
means 50 percent of the
STEM human capital and
knowledge is being export-
ed to other nations.
"So many STEM careers
are being exported that it's
plausible that the arena is
wearing out, STEM in gener-
al is graying out," she said.
The goal of the camps is
to, in the future, shift that
number and give partici-
pating students a look into
the "cool" and "fun" side of
these "hard" subjects. It also
allows students a glimpse
into what their futures can
hold if they continue to
study STEM fields, and gives
the corporate sponsors
of the camp a chance to
inspire the potential next
generation leaders of their
companies.
"We need talent; it's our
lifeblood here," EA Tiburon
Chief Operating Officer
Daryl Holt said. "For us
to be creative and remain
innovative, we're going to
have to invest in that talent
and grow that talent."
For EA, as well as the
other corporate camp spon-
sors, NASA and Lockheed
Martin, showing STEM
campers how they operate
is the perfect way to do just
that.


HrnU Ei IS AU UA UUUUr I t VUIbt
Jacob Dunagan, left, and Cody Hurtnagel, 13, test out a golf video game at Electronic Arts Tiburon Studios in Maitland.


The day before the stu-
dents toured EA, they spent
the day at the UCF Teaching
Academy. The campers
spent the day learning
the value of STEM educa-
tion, while participating
in hands-on activities that
challenged both their drive
and imagination.
Campers did everything
from perform step-by-step
virtual brain surgery, build
bridges out of Popsicle
sticks that would hold up to
100 pounds in weight, and
- what UCF camp director
Jacqueline Rodriguez said
was the biggest hit among
the students oversee a
virtual classroom full of ava-
tar students in the Teaching
Academy's TeachMe lab.
Rodriguez explained that
once the students put on
headsets, they could com-


municate with the avatars
in real-time.
"The avatars are in mid-
dle school and our camp-
ers are in middle school,
so they interact with them,
and because it's real time
the avatars talk about what
they're wearing, the things
that are happening in the
field," she said. "They even
had conversations about
basketball and LeBron
James moving to Miami. It's
all immediate."
Each of the five two-day
sessions began with the
day on-campus at UCF, and
while this session experi-
enced all EA has to offer,
three of the previous groups
instead went to Lockheed
Martin where they partic-
ipated in military vehicle
simulations, and another
group simulated lift-off into


space at the NASA Kennedy
Space Center.
Each group may have
been exposed to different
facets of STEM during their
camp sessions, Rodriguez
said, but what matters
most was that they were
exposed at all. She hopes
that with programs such as
these STEM camps across
the country, the number
of students pursuing STEM
careers will increase.
"I'm not sure how many
lives we changed, or that
we're going to change your
career direction, but it's
possible," she said. "Who
knows what happens in six
years, but at least those kids
were now exposed and they
know a little bit more, and
appreciate a little bit more
and they have a greater
value for STEM careers."

PHOIO COUHI SY OF UNIVERSAL ORLANDO RESORT
The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando Resort kicked off its grand opening celebration on June 17 with help from Harry Potter film stars. You enjoy
the attraction year-round for $40 more than a one-day park ticket.


BRITTNI JOHNSON
GUEST REPORTER
Many Americans will be
traveling this summer, and
most by car.AAA reports that
the number of Americans
who will be traveling over
the July 4 weekend is up
17 percent from last year,
and 90 percent of those will
be driving to their destina-
tions.
With most vacations
turning into driving trips,
we decided to give Winter
Parkers some quick, driv-
able "staycation" ideas.
Check out some day trips
with deals built in specifi-
cally for Florida residents.

Universal Orlando
Universal Studios is offering
a year pass for just around
$40 more than a one-day
ticket. The pass gets visitors
into both Universal Studios
and Islands of Adventure.
That means a year's worth of
the new Wizarding World of
Harry Potter. There are also
two- and three-day deals for
Floridians, and many are
only offered online. Check
out their website at www.
universalorlando.com.

SeaWorld
SeaWorld is offering its own


deals for Florida residents.
They've got something no
tried and true theme park
expert and most Central
Floridians are could pass
up. A year's pass to either
SeaWorld or Busch Gardens
is $69.95 for a Florida res-
ident when purchased
online. That's $10 less than
a day's pass to the parks.
SeaWorld is also offering a
$5 child's ticket with the
purchase of a single-day
adult ticket. All of the pro-
ceeds from children's tick-
ets benefit wildlife con-
servation efforts. Find the
online discounts at www.
SeaWorldOrlando.com.

Disney
Disney couldn't be the only
park without discounts.
They give Florida residents
about $100 off annual pass-
es. There are also discounts
on day passes. All special
prices are only online at
www.disneyworld.disney.
go.com

Fantasy of Flight
West of Disney, in Polk
City, is Fantasy of Flight.
The museum immerses its
visitors in aviation history,
with planes dating from
the early 1900s. "It offers
more than just a day out -


it's a trip to the past," said
Jennifer Montague, direc-
tor of sales and marketing.
The attraction is not just
a museum, it has hot air
balloon rides and biplane
rides. The museum has has
ways to save. Visitors who
donate one of the specified
school supply items listed
on their website get $5 off
an adult admission for each
donation. Also, all Florida
service industry employ-
ees get a buy-one-get-one-
free adult ticket discount.
Fantasy of Flight is located
at 1400 Broadway Blvd.
S.E. in Polk City, right off of
Interstate 4. Visit www.fan-
tasyofflight.com for more
information.

The Pioneer Settlement
For an educational expe-
rience for the family, set
out on a day trip to The
Pioneer Settlement for
the Creative Arts, located
at 1776 Lightfoot Lane in
Barberville. The histori-
cal village has 18 restored
buildings, such as a print
shop, blacksmith shop and
post office. The settlement
hopes to illustrate life in
rural Florida in the late
19th and early 20th cen-
turies. During the summer,
tours are self-guided, but
there is a jamboree every


first Saturday of the month.
Musicians play bluegrass
and country music, much
you'd never hear on the
radio, said Gary Tallacksen,
associate director. Visitors
are invited to join in the
singing and playing. It's
open Monday through
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.,
and costs just $6 for adults
and $4 for children. Visit
www.pioneersettlement.
org or call 386-749-2959
for more information.

Mt. Dora
For an even bigger lesson
on history, visit Mount
Dora, a town dedicated to
its historical side. Climb
over its famous hilly terrain
and under canopies of old
oak trees, all while getting
a guided tour of the town
with Mount Dora Trolley
Company. The trolleys run
about once a day call
352-385-1023 for a sched-
ule and the tours are one
hour long. The trolley takes
guests through the quaint
shopping village, past his-
torical homes and beauti-
ful Lake Dora. "Our tour
tells about the past, present
and future of Mount Dora,"
said Cindy Shard, an owner
of the Trolley Company.
Tickets are $13 for adults
and $11 for children.

How to find the right Realtor for you


If you're like most, buying
or selling a house is one of
your life's most important
personal and financial deci-
sions. Therefore, it makes
sense to hire a skilled real
estate professional to help
you achieve your goals,
says Kathleen Gallagher
Mclver, RE/MAX Town
& Country Realty, chair-
man of the board of the
Orlando Regional Realtor
Association.
"A Realtor recognizes the
importance of the transac-
tion to the buyer and seller,
and uses his or her skills
to reach an agreement
satisfactory to all parties
involved," Mclver said. "And
unlike a real estate agent
who has simply met the
state's licensing require-
ments to do business in
Florida, a Realtor takes the
profession to the next level


by voluntarily agreeing to
abide by the Realtor Code
of Ethics and by becoming
a member of their local,
state and national Realtor
associations."
If you're not sure how
to find a Realtor, a good
online starting point
is the website of the
Orlando Regional Realtor
Association (www.orlRe-
altor.com). The website
offers a search function
for Realtors by name,
company name, city, zip
code and even foreign lan-
guage. Consumer-oriented
websites provided by the
Florida Realtors organiza-
tion (www.fl.living.net) and
the My-Florida Regional
Multiple Listing Service
(www.myfloridahomemls.
com) both offer search
functions for finding
Realtors and properties.


Here's some other ideas for
finding the right Realtor for
you:

* Talk with friends, neigh-
bors and co-workers who
recently bought or sold a
home in the area. What
kind of service did they
receive? Would they select
the same Realtor or com-
pany again?

* Look for posted "for
sale" or "sold" signs in your
neighborhood. A Realtor or
company that is active in
your neighborhood, com-
munity or condo building
warrants further consider-
ation.

* Attend an open house
and observe the Realtor in
action, judging his or her
expertise. Were you shown
the home in a professional


manner? How familiar was
the agent with the prop-
erty?

* If you're selling a home,
ask if the Realtor and bro-
kerage company are mem-
bers of a national network
or have international alli-
ances that could poten-
tially market your home to
prospective buyers across
the country or around the
world.

When you've identified sev-
eral potential Realtors, visit
their websites and learn
more about their back-
grounds and experience.
You could also send them
an e-mail asking for infor-
mation on how they've
helped buyers or sellers.
Once you've narrowed
your choice to two or three
Realtors, ask each of them


the questions such as:

*Can you give me the three
names of references whose
homes you've recently sold?
*How will you work to
actively seek buyers for my
home?

*Have you earned any spe-
cialty professional real
estate designations?

Selecting a Realtor is usu-
ally based on an indi-
vidual's knowledge, skills
and personality, Mclver
said. "When you choose a
Realtor, you can be assured
you're selecting a solid,
caring professional who
will treat you honestly and
work diligently on your
behalf."
