The Oviedo political races
just got more heated, with
new challengers vying for
the seats of Mayor Mary Lou
Andrews and Councilman
Steve Henken. Six candi-
dates have come forth so far
to pull election paperwork
to file later this month.
"I commend anyone who
wants to serve," Henken
wrote in a press release. "I

four years and hope the vot-

Park cost



cut in half


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

The state will pay for at least 75 percent of the
cost to build a dog park in Central Winds Park.
The matching grant awarded to the city
by the Florida Department of Environmental
Protection in July 2008 was originally for 50
percent of the project's budget.
Parks and Recreation Director Chuck Pula
found out before the July 23 budget workshop
that because he had reduced the overall cost
of the park to below $150,000, the amount the
state will match increased by $25,000.
When Commissioner Gary Bonner heard
this, he asked Pula to clarify.
"Just to make sure I understand, because the
cost of the project is lower the grant contribu-
tion will be greater from the state?" he asked.
"Don't tryto make senseof it," Commissioner
Rick Brown interjected. '"From the state' was
included in that comment."
The $100,000 dog park could be completely
covered if a grant application for Magnolia
Park is approved later this year, Pula said.
The cost decreased because Pula modified
the park's master plan so that it would be
located near an existing access road so they

THEI \'. "


A couple was driving along
State Road 46 in Geneva on
Sunday morning when they
saw a white truck sitting
in a ditch by the side of
the road and a man and a
woman standing next to it.
Then the man raised his
arm to point at the woman,
they heard a "pop" and the
woman fell to the ground.
"We are driving on S.R.

Lee, 37, an employee of
the state Department of
Corrections.
When deputies arrived
at the scene, the suspect
refused to cooperate and
was shot.

THIS WEEK in history

- A rare collision of three ships in Tampa Bay, Fla., resulted in a spill
of 336,000 gallons of fuel oil. The incident marked the first use of
a computerized trajectory model to track an oil spill using data on
wind, weather and the movement of tides to determine the extent

Building relationships to boost real estate


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Packed into an elegant
room like well-dressed sar-
dines in a can, a panel of
leading industry officials
got together to discuss the
present and future state of
Florida's real estate market.
The July 28 panel discus-
sion, titled "Central.Florida:
Where It Is, Where It Is
Headed," was hosted by the
International Council of
Shopping Centers Orlando
Local Program Committee
and moderated by John
Crossman of Crossman &
Company.
With themes of building
relationships to overcome
real estate troubles and get-
ting creative with vacant
spaces to save money,
Crossman said to invest in
people in these trying eco-
nomic times. He posed the
question: "If you can't invest
in relationships, what can
you invest in?"
The event, held at
the Village at Lake Lily in
Maitland, feattired pan-
elists Randy Anderson,
chairman of the UCF Real
Estate Department; Chris
Brockman, a partner at the
Holland and Knight law
firm in Maitland; Lonnie
Peterson, chairman of
Cuhaci & Peterson archi-
tects in Baldwin Park; and.
Declan Reiley, vice presi-
dent of business develop-
ment for the Metro Orlando
Economic Development
Commission.
In a general consen-

sus among panelists that
Central Florida is not among
the hardest-hit areas for real
estate woes, Reiley said that
"although we aren't in our
hay, the sky isn't falling; it
may just be a little lower."
He continued to say that
numbers are good despite
the circumstances.
Reiley and the Economic
Development Commission
have created more than
1,000 jobs in the Central
Florida area and are still
opening a few new projects,
but are focusing on projects
coming in the next couple
of years.
In looking at what some
would call the "death of
the mall," Brockman said
that we can't afford to have
property just sitting around
collecting dust.
With a combination of
the words "mall" and "evo-
lution," Crossman jokingly
coined the word "mallu-
tion" to be used as the next
phase for mall properties


that want to survive extinc-
tion.
Brockman opted for
alternative and more cre-
ative, non-traditional uses
for empty spaces, like keep-
ing the front of buildings in
retail, but utilizing the back
for other businesses like the
Village at Lake Lily prop-
erty, which features retail
shops and restaurants on its
exterior and apartment and
condominium living on its
interior.
Peterson agreed with
Brockman's view of vacant
spaces as multi-purpose
and multi-functional
opportunities, as it was one
of the themes of the night.
Peterson cited "remodel,
renovate and reuse" as a
mantra to follow.
When it came to
strengtheningrelationships,
Brockman used the exam-
ple of a tenant and landlord
to get his point across.
He said, "The tenant
you have is the best type

slump, according to a panelist at a real estate discussion held last week in Maitland.


to have," explaining that.
keeping and building rela-
tionships with clients is eas-
ier than finding new ones.
Brockman sent the message
that servicing and working
with one another will make
things better in the coming
years.
Thepanelists spoke hope-


fully about the future of the
real estate market and said -
that consumers don't need
to keep throwing away good
money, but instead need to
find creative ways to save.
Brockman said for right
now, "It's save your way to
survive, not save your way
to prosperity."

Local shelter wins grant money


KAREN McENANY-PHILLIPS
THE VOICE

Skye and Star play and sleep
together in the lobby of
Seminole County Animal
Services Adoption area.
These tiger-striped kittens
may someday frolic in an
even nicer environment
thanks to supporters of
Seminole County Animal
Services who clicked their
way to a second place $5,000
prize for the 2009 Animal
Rescue Site and Petfinder's
$100,000 challenge.
From April 13 to July 26
visitors to the animal res-
cue Web site were invited
to vote for their favorite
animal rescue and shelter
organization. Seminole
County Animal Services also
won $1,000 in a weekly con-
test as they competed with
more than 6,000 organiza-
tions across the country.
Animal Services Manager
Morgan Woodward credited
Program Coordinator Diane
Gagliano, who convinced
him to participate.
"Diane does an extraordi-
nary job. I was a little skep-
tical at first, but she came to
me With nothing but enthiu-
siasm," he said
Gagliano also thanked
the volunteers.
'We have a great core set
of volunteers and a great
rapport with all the rescue
groups in this area who lent
us lots of support."
How will the money be
spent?
"One option is redo-
ing the front lobby adop-
tion area using updated cat
enclosures and creating
an inviting environment
for the public that is less


stressful for the animals,"
Woodard said.
Although adoption num-
bers are up, Woodard said
adoption percentages have
remained constant because
more animals, especially
cats, are being brought to
the shelter due to the econ-
omy
"Increasing adoptions
will always be our goal," he
said.
Gagliano added that
the shelter is seeing "less
cared for" animals result-
ing in higher medical costs.
Woodward said he has
been able to maintain the
$2 million annual budget
for Animal Services but has
tightened spending. SCAS
provides educational pro-
grams and tours for schools,
including bite prevention
and shelter tours.
Taking Florida state
honors was Pet Rescue by
Judy, winning $1,000 with
the most votes in the state
(national winners could not
be regional winners). Judy
Sarullo moved her rescue
organization to Sanford last
November and has seen a
large increase in abandoned
animals in the la6t year. The
4,000-square-foot facility
shelters cats and dogs, her
staff oversees animals in
foster care and many are
treated by local vets.
"We're thrilled with our
facility but we areare in need
of many supplies and vol-
unteers," Sarullo said. "The
money we won will prob-
ably go toward food and vet
bills."

posable gloves, detergent,

pine litter.
"We work on donations
of supplies and money for
gas and vet bills. We always
need foster homes and per-
manent homes for our ani-
mals."

adopting animals can visit

the pet."

Geneva helps our local animal shelters


By Karen McEnany-Phillips


A big shout out of thanks to
Mary Jo Martin, our dedi-
cated author who cranks
out the Geneva newsletter
each month, and to our
own Geneva Girl Scouts
who also helped get the
word out to rally support
for our local animal shel-
ters in the 2009 Animal
Rescue/Petfinder contest.
As you've probably heard,
Seminole County Animal
Services came in second in
the nation, winning $5,000
and Pet Rescue by Judy
won first place for the state
and $1,000.
How did the Girl Scouts
help? Well our young ladies
are totally plugged in to
helping animals, especially
after going on shelter tours,
and they understand the
power of internet net-
working. When the online


voting started they got
clicking right away and got
their friends and families
on board as well. Way to go
girls!
If you haven't visited
either of these shelters
recently, take a short ride
over to Sanford. I know
many of us think of the
term 'animal control' when
we mention county Animal
Services which makes
us feel sad and maybe
resistant to visit a place
that euthanizess animals.
Although that is an unfor-
tunate reality it is only one
of many, many services that
Animal Services provides.
Their main goal is adop-
tion which is no small task
given the economy and the
number of pets brought to
them each week.
On any given week-


end around town you've
probably seen adoption
events, many sponsored
by Pet Rescue by Judy.
Check out her educational
website, meet some of her
dogs and cats online and
then if you're over in the
Sanford area, stop by her
new facility and meet her
pets in person. She advises
it is more helpful and less
stressful for the animals
if you have thoughtfully
narrowed down the size,
breed, and type of pet you
are interested in before
visiting. Some animals are
in foster homes, not in the
shelter, so be sure to call
ahead so you don't waste a
trip.
Let me tell you some
small things anybody can
do to help our local ani-
mals and shelters and it
doesn't cost a lot of money
or take a lot of time.
Every shelter can use
more helping hands.
Volunteering can mean
working in the actual shel-
ter building, working with
animals, or helping with
adoption events on the
weekends at various loca-


tions around the county.
At Judy Sarullo's Sanford
shelter her new lobby com-
municates the goal for her
rescued animals: Rescue,
Rehabilitate, Resocialize,
Rehome. Foster homes play
an important role in this
process and Judy and staff
keep watch over those ani-
mals under her own roof
and those in foster homes.
It's a perfect fit for those
who may not want a per-
manent pet but who can
provide a home environ-
ment to help pets transi-
tion to a permanent home
and family.
If time and fostering is
not your thing, consider a
small donation of supplies.
Judy is always in need of
certain items. That's the
reality when the animals
keep on coming. When
you're at the store pick
up an extra roll of paper
towels, disposable gloves,
detergent, garbage bags, or
bleach. If you're at the pet
store, think about an extra
bag of pet food or cat lit-
ter. Perhaps you have some
blankets or towels in the
back of your closet. The


shelters can use them. And
when all else fails, cash and
gift cards make the perfect
donation and go toward
gas expenses and medical
bills.
P.S. Mark your calen-
dars for Monday, August
24 for the presentation by
FPL regarding the Natural
Gas Pipe Line that is to be
installed through eastern
Florida including Seminole
County and Geneva. The
presentation will be held
at the Community Center
from 6:30-8 p.m. Pizza and
drinks will be served.

Local business helps paralyzed patients walk again


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

The light from the lampposts
blurred past her while she drove fast
into the night. Behind the wheel,
alertness replaced a once groggy
Liza Riedel, who let the images of
recent events wash over her in rec-
ollection.
She had received a jarring phone
call earlier that evening that ema-
nated loudly throughout her oth-
erwise silent and dark, sleep-filled
home; a phone call every parent
dreads with news no parent wants
to hear. On the other end of the
phone, a voice filled her in with the
news "that her daughter, Amanda,
had been involved in a car accident
and was being airlifted to a nearby
hospital.
No words escaped Riedel's lips,
but countless scenarios, images and
emotions flooded her thoughts in
disarray, compelling her to push
down harder on the gas pedal that


would get her faster to her destina-
tion.
Walking briskly along the corri-
dors with sterile, whitewashed walls
and harsh fluorescent lighting, Liza
reached her 18-year-old daughter,
who looked up at her and spoke the
words, "Mommy, I'm paralyzed" so
matter-of-factly.
With a "we-can-fix-that" attitude
by any means, Riedel set off to pro-
vide her daughter with the tools
to regain some of her life back by
opening up the Step It Up Recovery
Center in Sanford.
"The doctors had told Amanda
the news before I arrived, so when
I got there I was mortified at the
thought of them telling her with-
out me," she said. "I was like, 'No,
you're not paralyzed,' in disbelief.
I would do whatever I could to get
her walking again and, ironically,
we are doing it here at Step It Up."
Modeled after the Project Walk
center in Carlsbad, Calif., where
Amanda had traveled twice to


receive physical therapy, the Step
It Up Recovery Center provides
care utilizing the same Dardzinski
Method of treatment.
The method retrains the brain to
work paralyzed areas without hav-
ing to feel them, Riedel said, build-
ing and strengthening the core of
the body as well as the rest.
"We loved the interaction [at
Project Walk] and the trainers were
great," she said. "Theyweren't teach-
ing you how to live in a wheelchair
... hope and motivation were there
to get people up and live actively.
They were saying things like, 'When
-you take steps....' It was something
that worked for Amanda both men-
tally and physically."
Understanding the financial
burdens and emotional difficul-
ties of spinal cord injuries not
only affecting the person with the
injury but also the family, Riedel
wanted to bring a similar center to
the Southeast for others to benefit
from.


The spacious warehouse facil-
ity with high ceilings and -exposed
cables is not state-of-the-art, new or
overwhelming, but rather possess-
es a garage or basement gym-like
atmosphere. Mirrors line the walls
for a glimpse at excited faces when
they take their long-awaited first
steps, while massage tables, station-
ary bikes, parallel bars, apparatuses
for standing and other equipment
border the walls.
With about 10-15 clients and
more bookings being scheduled
and re-scheduled, Riedel is excit-
ed for her clients, especially her
daughter - her self-proclaimed
"buddy" - and the progress they
are all making.
"Community support is good,
but we do need to be more known,"
she said. "We're not that big and
sophisticated like an Olive Garden;
we are that little mom- and pop
Italian restaurant with good food if
you know what I mean ... There's a
lot of heart built into this place."


RACES I Campaigns are filling up in a packed off-year election in Oviedo


< continued from the front page

Franklin Perez's campaign,
according to a letter from
Perez. Perez, a Libertarian,
is running for the Florida

Seminole libraries to stay in public hands


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Parents of home-schooled
children and the children
themselves took advantage
of a summer afternoon
with no classes. and peace-
fully protested in Sanford
on July 28 in favor of keep-
ing Seminole County Public
Libraries public - a crusade
they won.
As the county commis-
sioners met to decide the
county libraries' fate, peo-
ple gathered with tiny
American flags clutched in
their hands to support the
public usage of the librar-
ies and the resources they
offer.
"The democracy system
is based on information-
gathering," said Lori Bosse,
a protest participant who


home-schools her children
in Winter Springs. "By priva-
tizing the libraries it would
be like cutting out democ-
racy at the lowest level."
County commissioners
decided Tuesday that the
residents would be better
served by a public library
system, despite the money
it would have saved. Taking
the libraries private would
have meant cuts to literacy
programs, fewer operating
hours, eliminating some
degreed-librarian positions,
and less funding for buying
new books.
There had been much
debate as to whether the
libraries would remain pub-
lic or be taken over by a
private sector company
- Maryland-based Library
Systems & Services, which
operates more than 60


libraries across- the U.S. The
company proposed to take
on the five-branch library
system in Seminole County
and operate them for about
$6 million a year.
Joe Forte,. deputy county
manager of Seminole, said
that although the county
would have saved money
with the privatization, offi-
cials were not willing to risk
the high level of customer
service to library patrons.
LSSI propowd to cut more
seasoned employees and
replace them with clerical-
based help, while increas-
ing the libraries' hours of
operation, leaving the facil-
ities understaffed.
If the proposal was
accepted, the county might
have saved $668,500 per
year.
In June, Seminole County


was informed that it would
be facing a budged decrease
to the tune of $17 million, so
county officials asked com-
panies interested in taking
over the library branch to
submit proposals on how
they would fund and oper-
ate the $6.6 million system
with less money.
LSSI was the only com-
pany that stepped forward
with a proposal.
An Oviedo library
employee, who asked, to
remain anonymous, said
that the community and
public should be in control
of their libraries, and that
private companies would
take a profit no matter what
they say.
She said that libraries
would be under-funded, and
that the public would shy
away from using the library


because of the increase in
fees and fines - for things
such as damaged, lost or
overdue books - that
would come with the new
regulations.
Bosse, the home-school-
ing mom at the protest, said
that it was "depressing" to
think that libraries could
be privatized because of the
importance they hold -for
teaching.
"As a home-schooler
we use the libraries, a lot
because we can't afford to
buy the books," she said.
"We are at the libraries every
week utilizing its resources
that public school children
would have.
"Clearly, the people who
were looking into priva-
tizing the library were not
patrons of it."


UCF ends four long-running education programs


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER

The University of Central
Florida Board of Trustees
approved the elimination of
four programs and the sus-
pension of a fifth program
over the next two years on
July 23.
Cardiopulmonary
Sciences, Radiologic
Sciences, Engineering
Technology and
Management Information
Systems programs will
be cut, and the Actuarial
Sciences program will be
suspended.
The move comes after
budget cuts of $77.2 million
or 27 percent to UCF's fund-
ing from the state.
"Our priorities have been
and continue to be the stu-
dents," said UCF President
John Hitt, at the meeting.
As a result 37 jobs will
be eliminated - 33 faculty
and four staff - and 1,025
students will be affected.
The students will have
two years to complete their
degrees before the programs
are phased out completely.
The Department of
Management Information
Systems, in the College


of Business, includes a
Management Information
Systems B.S.B.A., a man-
agement information sys-
tems minor, an operations
management/enterprise
systems minor, an enter-
prise resource planning
undergraduate certificate,
a management information
systems M.S. and a business
administration Ph.D., MIS
track.
The Department of
Health Professions in the
College of Health and Public
Affairs includes a cardiopul-
monary sciences B.S. and a
radiologic sciences B.S.
The Department of
Engineering Technology, in
the College of Engineering
and Computer Science
includes an electrical
engineering technology,
B.S.E.E.T., an engineering
technology B.S.E.T, an infor-
mation system technology
B.S. and a technology M.S.
The Department of
Statistics and Actuarial
Science, in the College of
Sciences, includes an actu-
arial science B.S.
"No matter how you look
at it these are very difficult
times," Hitt said.
Terry Hickey, provost and
executive vice president,


spoke in front of the Board,
presenting several graphs
showing the university's
budgets for 2009-2010 and
2010-2011.
According to the budget
resource center on UCF's
Web site, the administra-
tion will save 2.5 percent -
about $3.3 million. Another
2.5 percent - about $4.6
million - will be saved by
program cuts in the aca-
demic budget. The money
UCF was granted from the
federal stimulus - about
$17 million - will run out
in 2011, Hickey said.
Judy Albertson, chair of
the educational programs
committee which had a
well-attended meeting on
July 13 about the cuts, spoke
in front of the board as well
as representatives from
each of the programs that
were up for elimination.
"You're being asked to
make permanent program
closures that probablywon't
come back in our lifetime,"
said Dr. Lawrence West, an
associate professor in the
management information
systems department. "I
think there are alternatives
to doing that."
Dr. Ron Eaglin, chair of
the engineering technology


department also spoke in
defense of his department.
"We need to make sure
that as we go through this
transition... we do this with
the best possible option for
the students," he said.
Before the - meeting,
members of the United
Faculty of Florida rallied in
front of the Student Union
in opposition to the cuts.
Blake Scott, an associate
professor of English, was
one of the leaders of the
rally. He said they would
keep pursuing the admin-
istration with the possibil-
ity of having open, honest
discussion.
Tim Worrell, an associate
professor of cardiopulmo-
nary sciences and one of the
few speakers that day whose
program is actually being
eliminated, spoke of the
benefits of the cardiopul-
monary program brought
to the state and called it


"irreplaceable."
Claudia Schippert, -an
associate professor in the
philosophy department,
also helped lead the cause.
"I am worried and angry,"
she said to a crowd of fac-
ulty and students.
Mason Cash, an assistant
professor in the philosophy
department added that the
board did not have enough
information to make the
decision.
In the meeting, the United
Faculty of Florida ralliers
silently held up blue signs
with the words "for shame"
on one side and "repriori-
tize. Faculty deserve better.
Students deserve better.
UCF deserves better" on the
flip side.
Only two members of the
Board voted against the cuts
- Student Body President
Brian Peterson and board
member Ida Cook.

As retail continues to suffer during the economic
downturn, one local business owner is raising a.
glass to sweet success.
Just outside her store tucked in the back of
the Winter Springs Town Center. Amber Jenkins
has seen the signs - "for lease." "closed." "going
out of business." Retail has slumped as wallets
and purses have cinched closed, hurting retail .
sales. But this young blonde has found a way to
beat the economy and keep the wine flowing "'
at her WineStrles store, even while other stores
founder.
"I know of some other stores that are going
back to just the owners working there, to save {'
money," she said. "Right now we have four, .
employees, plus me."
Those employees help customers pore over
hundreds of bottles lining dark pockets along
Tuscan-themed walls, sorted by taste rather than :
obscure varieties.
"The staff makes it a fun atmosphere and [wine,.
isl easy and fun to shop for," employee Kristina;
Lake said.
Jenkins' voice turns upbeat when she hears
mention of the economy; almost as if she's shrug-
ging off what some economists are calling a
potential depression. During one of the most pro-
nounced economic downturns since 1930, she's
still selling like it's 1929.
"For July we're up 15 percent over last year" "
Jenkins said. "I almost did as much this May as I
did in December."
Adaptation has made the difference, as sh4s
taken an already social-event-oriented business
and turned the volume up to 11, churning.out '.
more special events than her customers coiAt '.-

possibly ignore.
"We're doing more events than
ever," she said. "Right now we're
doing 10-12 a month."
That includes taking advantage
of hours that normally wouldn't see
many customers in her store. For
Jenkins, having a glass of wine isn't
just for the evening anymore.
"We started with free wine tast-
ings every Thursday night, but now
we're doing Saturday afternoons,"
she said. "Most people aren't going
to a wine shop on a Saturday after-
noon, but we're trying to bring in
more people on our down time."
Free wine nights, "blind" tasting
and networking gatherings have
turned her business into more than
just a store, keeping word of mouth
flowing and keeping the dollars
pouring in, even if they're for less
expensive bottles.
And as customers' tastes have
gravitated toward the more afford-
able end of the spectrum, she's


"Rooted ( grounded
in Jesus Christ."

pushed specials to take advantage.
Her six bottles for $60 program
used to feature six to 10 wines.
Now she's at 20, and customers are
staying happy.
"The average ticket is probably
about the same but the number of
items has increased," Jenkins said.
"They're paying the same amount
of dollars but getting more items."
That's led to a big payoff for
Jenkins, who's working more
hours to keep the events pulling in
customers, as she remains hopeful
about the future. Her numbers are
already looking up, she said, and
she's expecting a stronger end to
the year after a weak holiday sea-
son in 2008. As long as the wine
keeps flowing, she'll be toasting to
better days.
"'If it keeps going this way, hope-
fully we'll be out of [the retail
slump] by the end of the year," she
said.

Clients cut costs but keep exercising


KAITLYN HARRIS
GUEST 7: ' ': �

It's 6 a.m. and the sky is turning
lighter by the minute. This quiet
early morning hour is a ritual for
Mitch Urian. He pulls into a park-
ing lot just off Lake Howell Road,
just like he does every day, steps
out of his car and into a world built
with his own two hands. For him,
the morning grind is a lifestyle.
The sudden smell Of rubber mats
and metal weights mixes with the
smell of hard work dripping from
the bodies of everyone in the room.
He's all smiles inside Excel Fitness,
a product of a passion mirrored in
the faces of clients all around him.
For them, staying healthy is worth
not only the effort they put in, but
also the toll it takes on their wallets
during a slow economy.
Two years ago Urian opened his
gym's doors for the first time, just
as America's economic gears were
grinding to a halt. But Urian isn't
worried about the gym's success.
"I still have the same amount of
trainers renting space from me,"


he said. "And we all are still getting
new clients here and there to keep
our income steady. There has been
a small drop in the number of cli-
ents that have stopped training due
to financial issues but overall, the
numbers have pretty much main-
tained since the recession started."
Urian's list of clientele is primar-
ily made up of young athletes and
sports teams. He says that despite
the financial losses many parents
are facing due to the economy, they
are still investing in their children's
futures by keeping them active and
healthy. Along with the youth, the
gym is also benefiting from another
demographic that doesn't fill many
gyms - the elderly.
Katie Berg, one of the person-
al trainers, at Excel, said most of
her client sheet is filled with retir-
ees, operating on strict retirement
budgets that leave them enough
money to stay healthy, even in an
economic downturn.
"Because 93 percent of my cli-
ents are people with fixed incomes,
the economy hasn't hurt me very
much," Berg said. "There were a


few clients that were younger and
because of loss of jobs and income,
they chose not to come in, but over-
all business has been pretty good."
Berg said her clients will save
money in other ways to keep going
to the gym.
"If a person wants to go out to
lunch several days a week, they
could be spending anywhere
between 5 and 12 dollars each
meal," she said. "By bagging their
own lunch instead and saving that
money, they could be paying for 1
or 2 sessions with a trainer."
Cutting back on non-essential
expenses can free up money for
personal training and gym mem-
berships to stay healthy, helping
battle the bulge with a shrinking
wallet, she explained.
According to a new report by
Trust for America's Health and The
Robert Wood Johnson Foundation
released July 1, Florida holds the
39th highest rate of adult obesity in
the nation, and the 17th highest of
overweight youths.
Berg says that the difference
between a healthy lifestyle and


a sedentary one comes down to
motivation and priorities.
"Any trainer will tell you, it comes
down to priority," Berg said. "If a
person wants to stay in shape and
be healthy, they will pay the price
and sacrifice the time."
Alpha Woods, a member at Metro
24/7 gym in Orlando, agrees with
Berg.
"The gym I was a member at
before was costlier than Metro,
and it wasn't open 24 hours a day,"
Woods said. "I chose something
that was more convenient and
financially a better deal. With the
recession going on, I want to save
as much money as I can, but staying
in shape is very important to me."
That's the kind of commitment
that makes Urian smile.
"Overall, I feel that people are
still going to pay for gym mem-
berships or personal training to
keep in shape," Urian said. "The
way my business has grown in the
past year gives me reason to believe
that people still have their priori-
ties straight."

at home as they had no field lights. The game was called after a
downpour in the fourth inning, and the first complete night game
took place the following day.


ARCHIVE PHOTO BY ISAAC BABCOCK - THE VOICE
Despite strong offense during the regular season that carried them to a second-place finish, the Rats fizzled in the playoffs, scoring only one run against the Leesburg Lightning, who won the championship.


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Two shock upsets led to a dra-
matic twist finale for the Florida
Collegiate Summer League season,
and the Sanford River Rats were left
wondering what could have been.
In the semifinal round of post-
season play, the Rats were shut
down by the Leesburg Lightning,
who needed only two games to
eliminate them from the tourna-
ment.


Leesburg came alive early Friday
night, leaping onto the scoreboard
in the second inning and holding
onto the lead through nine.
That first run proved ominous
for the Rats, as Lightning right-
fielder Evan Taylor jacked a solo
shot over the wall to start his team's
rally. They would go on to win 5-1
in the first game.
Game two would prove even
more painful for the faltering Rats,
who held the Lightning scoreless
through three innings, but couldn't


mobilize an offense.
A few small rallies were all the
Lightning needed to get on the
scoreboard, and they stayed ahead
through nine, shutting out the Rats
on five hits in the process.
Meanwhile, the Clermont
Mavericks, who had languished at
the bottom of the league all season,
caught fire against the DeLand Suns,
who had dominated the league all
year.
. The Mavericks would win their
three-game series 9-1, 3-6, 6-2 to


go on to the championship game at
Tropicana Field.
Under the big stadium lights the
Lightning came alive again, rallying
to a 5-1 win and ending the season
in unpredictable fashion. The Suns,
who had led the league the entire
season,were third in the champion-
ship, and the third-place Lightning
leapt to the top. The Rats, who had.
flirted with overtaking the Suns
a few times in the season, found
themselves in fourth and looking at
next year for redemption.


Knights soccer team returns stronger than ever


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE


One of the Knights' most prolific
sports teams returned to the field
this week packed with seniors and
ready for a breakout season.
The women's soccer team had
the most powerful offense. in
Conference USA last season, scor-
ing 43 goals in 23 games, and earn-
ing 5.65 points per game.
That was good enough for a tight
third-place finish behind Memphis
and East Carolina last season.
This year, they could be headed


higher in the rankings, returning
top players from all over the field,
including Brazilian National Team
goalkeeper Aline Reis. She's joined
by C-USA All-Tournament team-
mate Danielle dos Santos.
Eight seniors in total will take
the field this year, plus a large squad
of experienced returners, such as
local phenom Yvonne George, who
graduated from Winter Springs
High School. She was fourth in the
conference last season with seven


assists. Top assist-earners Becca
Thomas and Brianna Schooley also
return to the team.
The Knights returned to practice
this week to prepare for a 7 p.m.
Aug. 13 scrimmage at home against
Rollins College, devoting much of
the practice time to repairing an
Achilles heel from last season -
defense.
Despite being in the top three in
the conference in every offensive
category, the Knights were held back
from winning- the championship
due to high goals against. Stopping
goal opportunities proved a weak


point, as the Knights allowed 29
goals against, good for only 6th of
12 teams.
Reis proved to be the team's only
saving grace on defense, saving 118
goals in 23 games before ascending
to Brazil's World Cup team after
only one season at UCF. Despite
being privy to frequent shot oppor-
tunities, Reis shut out six teams last
season, good for second place over-
all in the conference.
After their Aug. 13 scrimmage
the Knights hit the field at 6 p.m.
Aug. 21 against Florida Gulf Coast.

EMPLOYMENT

Ask

Sandi

A couple of years ago, when I start-
ed this column, I gave these tips. I
believe they are still very relevant
today:
Your resume - It's important to
have a resume and make sure it's
fine-tuned and professional. Keep
it on white or cream paper unless
you are an artist.
Your cover letter - Too many
people skip this step! It is impor-
tant to have a well-thought-out


cover letter with every resume.
Following up - This should be
done respectfully with a phone
call, e-mail or follow-up letter. A
"thank you" note should always be
sent after an interview.
Knowing what job you want
- "Anything available" is not an
answer. Recruiters do not like to
guess!
Knowing about the company
- If you want to work for my com-
pany, you should have an idea of
what we do.
Your image - Dress well,
sit straight, good eye contact,
thoughtful answers to interview
questions are extremely important.
A great resume can get you in the
door, a great interview can keep


you there.
References - I can't stress
enough: Don't burn bridges! Leave
on good terms and get letters of
recommendation when possible.
Taking your search seriously -
Just because you got the interview
does not guarantee you get the job.
Don't stop looking until the offer is
made and accepted.
Keeping your search a secret -
If you are currently working, this
is more challenging. Reach out to
those you trust and let them know
you are searching. Networking
works.
Unreasonable pay expectations
- We all want to make the big
bucks, but be reasonable. Research
salary trends in your industry and


be willing to work your way up.
Best of luck!


Until next time,


- Sandi

Here's what kids
at Longwood
Elementary had to
say about books they
read this summer.

//


My favorite book is
"Kat Kong" because
it is an adventurous
book. It is the story
of three mice, a sci-
entist, a doctor and a
nurse who discover
Kat Kong on an island
and bring it back to
put it in a show.
