Cut UCF

program

moves to

Daytona


ROBYN SIDERSKY


The engineering technol-
ogy program may have been
cut from the University of
Central Florida, but it has
found a new home at Day-
tona State College.
Ron Eaglin, UCF engi-
neering technology depart-
ment chair, said the program
will begin its move to Day-
tona in fall 2010 and will be
exclusively at the new loca-
tion within two years.
"Daytona will accept all
the students who want to
complete the program in
engineering technology,"
Eaglin said. "The program
will be much bigger over
there than at UCF."
The engineering technol-
ogy program is one of four
programs the UCF Board of
Trustees voted to eliminate
at their July 23 meeting. A
fifth program has also been
suspended.
The cuts affect 1,025 stu-
dents and 37 faculty and
staff.

Mall gets merchants association


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE ". '

The merchants at the
Oviedo Marketplace have
joined forces in an effort to
jump-start business while
giving back to the commu-
nity.
So far, anchors Macy's,
Sears, Regal Cinemas and
RJ Gator's have joined the
merchants association
board of directors, join-
ing smaller tenants such
as Subway, Auntie Anne's
Pretzels, Savannah Grace
Bridal, Plaster Cottage and
Aston Photography.
Leading the charge
to establish the mer-
chants association is Jim
Pridemore, owner of Aston
Photography with wife
Karen for almost a decade,


along with Craig Acardo of
Auntie Anne's.
"People don't realize that
the mall is a huge part of
Winter Springs and Oviedo,
and it's important that it be
revived," Pridemore said.
Boardmembers and Cory
Skeates, executive direc-
tor of the Oviedo-Winter
Springs Regional Chamber
of Commerce, have been
meetingweeklyfor a month
now to complete paper-
work that will formally
establish the association as
a nonprofit organization.

New school opens on Aug. 24 Putts for vets


ROBYN SIDERSKY
GUEST REPORTER

As the school year begins in Seminole
County, one school is opening its doors for
the first time - Journeys Academy.
Principal Mike Icardi said the alternative
school, for middle and high school students
with disciplinary issues, is ready to wel-
come 220 students.
"Our mission is to provide an educa-
tional service or opportunity for students
who have been assigned to us from their
zoned middle school or high school for
some behavior or disciplinary problems,"
Icardi said.
The school was formerly managed by
an expulsion alternative program, ResCare.
Seminole County Public Schools took over
in August for the new school year.
The school has a new staff of 12 regular
education teachers and five Exceptional
Student Education teachers.
Icardi spoke highly of the staff at
Journeys.
"We've hired a staff that wants to be
here," he said, "that desires to work with
kids at risk and who need a stable caring
environment to give them a chance to be
successful."
Journeys Academy students are bused
in from all over the county. The curricu-
lum is the same as other Seminole middle
and high schools. Because it's a disciplin-
ary school, though, students don't have the
same privileges. There are no extracurricu-
lar activities such as sports and after-school
clubs. Also, students must adhere to a strict
dress code. All students must wear black
slacks, button down shirts, dress shoes, and


ties for the boys.
Most students spend just one semester
at Journeys Academy before returning to
their zoned school, but they must meet cer-
tain requirements first, Icardi said.
Inappropriate behavior must be reduced,
he said. It's a general requirement to avoid
suspension from Journeys. One of the
goals is that the students improve their
behavioral decisions. Good attendance is
also a requirement for being able to leave
Journeys. They can't accrue more than five
unexcused absences during the semester.
Finally, there's an academic goal. The stu-
dents must have a 2.0 grade point average
before they can go back to their zoned
schools.
The students beginning school in the
fall are on track to go back to their zoned
schools in January.
Before becoming the principal
of Journeys, Icardi spent 27 years with
Seminole County Public Schools - 22
years as the principal of Lake Brantley High
School, four at Quest Academy, and last
year at Lyman High School.
Quest Academy was another alternative
school that closed due to budgetary con-
cerns after the 2007-2008 school year. The
school met the needs of academically chal-
lenged students, but was expensive for the
county to run, Icardi said.
The students at Quest went back to their
zoned schools after it closed.
Icardi said he thinks the program at
Journeys will keep students who cause dis-
ciplinary problems off the street.
"One of the things we would like [them]
to do is leave us with hope for the future,"
he said.

It's Back-To-School time,
and how the summer did
fly! This school year will be
challenging in many ways
not only for our children
but for teachers and par-
ents.
Most of us are paying
close attention to finances
and trying to get the most
bang for our buck wheth-
er it is school supplies,
extracurricular activities,
lunches or transporta-
tion. It's not a bad thing
to shop around, stock up
and demand the most
value from our purchases.
I don't think it's a bad idea
to include our kids in the
accountability equation.
More than ever we need
our children to be well-
educated. In order to find
solutions and to solve the
labyrinth of complicated
issues facing our country
and our world, we need
the new generations to hit


the: ground running in the
classroom.
Families must be
engaged as a unit in home-
work, government, geogra-
phy, language and history.
It's time to give our kids
the unmistakable message
that education is impor-
tant, comes with a price,
and that those cool toys
and gadgets won't come so
easily if their schoolwork
suffers.
A big dose of good plan-
ning blended with equal
parts creativity will help us
stay in touch with our kids'
homework assignments,
learning curves and school
supply needs as we usher
in a new school year once
more. Congrats to everyone
in the community who is
helping with supply drives,
backpack assembly and
volunteer efforts to sup-
port our kids and teach-
ers. Every little bit helps.


& A


you have kids or grandkids
in school you still have a
stake in the educational
outcome. Put a plastic cup
somewhere in your kitchen
and throw in those little
box top squares that sup-
port education. After you
get a few or a full cup, drop
it off at your local school.
Believe me they are always
collecting, like Geneva
Elementary does in their
Trash for Treasure Days.
Speaking of school, we
have lots of news regarding
the historic Geneva School.
The renovation of the two
west classrooms and hall-
ways is almost complete
with a few exceptions. The
school needs an additional
$20,000 to replace three
broken air conditioning
compressors, installation
and finishing 2,500 square
feet of wood floor in the
assembly area - a critical
part of the total project,
plating and rigging hard-
ware.

Lots of work is needed
to prepare the.school for
the Sept. 26 Smithsonian
Museum Day where the
school and our Geneva
Museum will be open with
a Rural Fine Art and Craft
exhibition, square dancing
and buggy rides.
Every Saturday at the
historic school will be a
workday from 9 a.m. to
noon. Everyone, no mat-
ter your talent, is welcome
and needed. Hardworking
kids are welcome and teens
can earn Bright Future
Scholarship hours as well.
Saturday afternoons
from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. the
Rural Heritage center will
be holding workshops for
everyone to learn 3D mod-
eling from historic photos,
oral history, digital story-
telling and more.
All these hardworking
volunteers will be stopping
for lunch as well at the
Rural Heritage Center, so

CUTS I UCF lost almost $80 million from the state, eliminated three programs


< continued from the front page

"Qur priorities have been and
continue to be the students," UCF
President John Hitt said at the
meeting.
If the students decide not to con-
tinue their work in the program
they are currently in, they will have
to change majors, or finish their
work at another college.
Eaglin said he doesn't under-
stand the logic used to select the
programs being cut.
"This could have been avoided.
I think there was a lot more to this
than the sheer basis of cost," Eaglin
said.


Not every program suffering the
recent cuts has responded in this
way. Aaron Liberman, professor and
interim chair of the Department
of Health Management and Infor-
matics, which lost two programs
within its College of Health and
Public. Affairs - cardiopulmonary
and radiological sciences - said he
supports the university's decision.
"It was deemed to be a necessity
because of our operating budget
shortfall and that's very difficult to
argue with," Liberman said.
The program eliminations came
after the state imposed $77.2 mil-
lion in cuts to the UCF's budget
or 27 percent of university's state


budget.
"I do not believe it could have
been avoided," Liberman said of the
program eliminations.
According to the budget resource
center on UCF's Web site, the uni-
versity will save 2.5 percent - about
$3.3 million - from the administra-
tive budget and another 2.5 percent
- about $4.6 million - from the
academic budget as a result of the
cuts.
Liberman said the final classes of
students have been admitted into
the two College of Health and Pub-
lic Affairs programs being eliminat-
ed - 21 students in cardiopulmo-
nary sciences and 16 in radiological


sciences. Each student received an
individual advising session and set
a plan to complete their degree by
May 2011, when the program will
be gone.
All the program eliminations -
the cardiopulmonary sciences and
radiologic sciences, engineering
technology, management informa-
tion systems - and the suspension
of the actuarial sciences program
will happen by May 2011.
"No matter how you look at it,
these are very difficult times," Hitt
told the Board of Trustees.

Art* and music on the horizon


It's almost pineapple time
according to the plants in
my backyard. I was weeding,
or making a good attempt
on that job, when I noticed
six small pineapples and
two other buds that will
eventually bear fruit. I am
quite happy now but the
fruit is green and immature.
In a month or so the fruit
will begin to ripen and that
is a great invitation to my
friendly squirrel Charlie
and his buddies. We play the
-game each year: Who gets
the fruit first?
So far I am ahead of the
game, but I can't stand guard
24/7. There is something so
very tasty about food that
you grow yourself, puts a
different perspective on
cooking and taste.
Just around the corner
the school bell will be ring-
ing and I bet there will be a
few students wishing that
their summer would last a
little longer. Please be care-
ful driving, particularly
while school is in session.
There are still activities to
enjoy while in or out of
school.


Coming up at 10 a.m. on
Saturday, Aug. 22, you are
invited to the Dedication
Ceremony of the Wagner
Historical Marker at the
entrance to the Dog Park in
Central Winds Park, Winter
Springs. The park is located
at 1000 E. State Road 434 in
Winter Springs. Join us to
celebrate a piece of Semi-
nole County's history. A wee
bit of history on Wagner: In
the 1870s, four wharfs were
built on the south shores
of Lake Jesup. Steamships
came into Lake Jesup, bring-
ing goods and supplies to
settlers throughout central
Florida. Later, railroad stops
connected this Wagner area
with other local communi-
ties. Near 1900, the south-
west corner of Lake Jesup
became known as Wagner.
The origin of the name
is uncertain. So now that
I have whet your appetite
for knowledge, come to the
dedication.
Come visit the Museum
of Geneva History every
second and fourth Sunday
of the month from 2 p.m.
to 4 p.m. located next door


to the Geneva Communi-
ty Center on First Street in
Geneva. Admission is free to
enjoy the new railroad dis-
play and heritage display at
the museum. The Historical
Society sells Geneva histori-
cal prints, Geneva memo-
rabilia and historical books
including "The Making of a
Village - A History of Gene-
va." For more information,
please call 407-349-2966.

ASSOCIATION I Mall management pledges to cooperate with merchants' plans


< continued from the front page

Council has attended each
meeting so far. Even mall
management, which previ-
ously hadn't been receptive
to the forming of an asso-
ciation, has shown its sup-
port. The general and assis-
tant managers attended the
merchants' last meeting.
Jonathan Hubbell, man-
ager of the Marketplace and
Altamonte Mall, said they
will continue to attend.
"The association has
good plans that we want
to partner with them on,"
Hubbell said, but declined
to give specifics until the
association makes an offi-
cial announcement about
them.
"They have welcomed
us," Pridemore said. But
he thinks that the manag-
ers are heavily regulated by
General Growth Properties,
which is undergoing a
restructuring after filling
for Ch. 11 bankruptcy pro-
tection at the start of this
year. In November, manage-
ment reported a 75 percent
occupancy rate.
But things are looking up
- Hubbell said three new
stores have opened in the
last two months. Two more
are scheduled to open soon,
one of which is a tattoo par-
lor.
"My hope is that local
management will give us


as much leeway -as possible
because we're helping with
their mall as well as ours,"
Pridiemore said. "But I think
they're strapped on what
corporate will allow them
to do."
Skeates said the manage-
ment seems to be more open
than they were previously
in allowing the merchants
to host their own events,
but GGP can't really offer
any financial support.
"Their hands are tied
right now," Skeates said of
GGP and the bankruptcy
process.
The mall had been
plagued with rumors that
it was closing or that big
anchors such as Dillard's
and Regal were going to
pull out. Chamber executive
Skeates said he's heard it all
- including that the mall
was going to be torn down
and replaced with a hospi-
tal. He said all these rumors
are false, but the tenants are
having a hard time debunk-
ing them.
"They want to let the
public know that the mall
is here to stay - that's basi-
cally the message they want
to get out there," Skeates
said.
The association is already
working toward improving
the mall's visibility along
Highway 417 and Red Bug
Lake Road. Members, have
spokenwiththeDepartment


of Transportation about
adding the. word "mall"
after "Oviedo Marketplace"
on the sign that already lists
amenities at the Red Bug
Lake exit on the highway.
The association hopes
to bring the community.
together by hosting three
to four special events per
month at the mall that
sometimes bring in local
businesses. They want to
give back to the commu-
nity by helping with space
and resources for churches,
schools and other organiza-
tions, Pridemore said.
"We need to identify
what we can do for .the
community," he said. "If we
come together and do these
things, they'll come back
and shop with us."
They also hope to travel
to events within the area.
Representatives will attend
the Kidstravaganza host-
ed by the Chamber-, this
weekend, where they will
be doing caricatures, face
painting and free pho-
tos. Last week, they hand-
ed out 500 goodie bags to
neighborhood families as
part of the Oviedo Police
Department's National
Night Out event. They are
planning a big Halloween
celebration, which will be
their first major event.
Once the association
begins collecting dues,
Pridemore said he hopes


they can pool these funds
to purchase advertising
as a group; which is more
affordable than purchasing
it on an individual basis. -
They're also working on
a way to share information
about upcoming sales and
promotions between stores
and developing a referral
action plan, which would
allow merchants to send a
customer looking for a spe-
cific item to the store that
has it in stock.
Oviedo City Councilman
Dominic Persampiere, who
has attended two mer-
chants association meet-


ings, said the city is there to
offer its support and will be
able to streamline certain
processes such as permit-
ting for special events.
"We hope to stay as
involved as we can, without
overstepping our bounds,"
Persampiere said.
Pridemore said he's been
impressed so far at the num-
ber of merchants who have
gotten involved in the asso-
ciation.
I "It's not just little guys
like me," he said, "but peo-
ple who realize the need to
be more proactive about
our own destiny."

THE VOICE

"I have long believed, as
many have before me, that
peaceful relations between
nations require mutual
respect between individu-
als." -- President Du)ight D.
Eisenhower

A whirlwind trip to Europe
is a dream for most adults,
but it became a summer-
time reality for four Orlando
tweens, who will really have
something to talk about
when they start middle
school next week.
As Student Ambassadors
in the People to People
International cultural
exchange program, they
spent two weeks in July vis-
iting London and Paris. They
were nominated through
their schools for exhibiting
maturity, leadership, com-
munity service and academ-
ics.
"People to People looks
for A+ kids, not necessar-
ily A+ grades," said Shari
Krummenacker, whose
daughter Ashley went on
the trip.
People to People was
founded by President
Dwight D. Eisenhower in
1956, with the vision that
"interaction between ordi-
nary citizens around the
world can promote cultural
understanding and world
peace."
Ashley Krummenacker
of Geneva, Olivia Myers of
Longwood, Sam Frazier of
Sorrento, and Genevieve
Gentry of Winter Garden
were strangers last fall, but
became friends over the
seven months of fundrais-
ing and preparation for
their trip. Each student
had to raise $6,000 and
did so through bake sales,
poker tournaments, serv-
ing pizza, selling choco-
late bars and other com-

the history and culture of
Britain and France and
completed group projects
on the Louvre Museum and
Warwick Castle.
Planning was key in order
to fit clothes and necessities
into one suitcase and one
backpack. The- tweens also
learned how to wash and
spot clean their clothes in
a sink, in preparation for
traveling without a washer
and dryer.
In France they joined

and New York. The 40 stu-
dents split into new groups
and built even more friend-
ships as they visited many
landmarks including Notre
Dame, Versailles, the beach-
es of Normandy and Euro
Disneyland in Paris.
Ashley said she liked the
Eiffel Tower. "It looked big-
ger than.the pictures and
you could see for miles and


.miles."
The young ambassadors
loved London for its many
activities and because the
food was more familiar.
Sam liked fish and chips
while Olivia liked French
fries. Genevieve said they
had potatoes with every
meal and the group agreed
that it was the last food they
wanted when they returned
home. Ashley was surprised
she liked frog legs and escar-
got.
In England they vis-
ited Oxford, Bath, Covent
Garden, and the secret
WWII Headquarters as well
as Buckingham Palace, Big


Ben, the Crown Jewels and
the London Eye.
"The London Eye was
cool," Genevieve said.
They also visited
Stonehenge and listened to
speeches in Parliament in
the House of Commons and
the House of Lords.
. "Stonehenge was so big,
in the middle of nowhere,"
Sam said.
They were harnessed and
climbed up a tall pole and
some walked a tightrope
while Genevieve jumped
and grabbed a high bar as if
on a trapeze. "It was really

It's time to get back to
school, which means diving

UCF looks for household name


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

The Knights are strapping on the
pads again for the 2009 season,
and looking for some star power to
bring fans to the stands. After los-
ing star kick returned and defensive
secondary Joe Burnett to gradua-
tion and the NFL draft, the Knights'
football team is low on name rec-
ognition.
Burnett was a four-year starter
who holds the all-time UCF record
for interceptions at 13. He's now
with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Also hearing his name frequently
over the Bright House Networks
Stadium speakers last year was wide
receiver Khymest Williams, who
was instrumental in some of the


Knights' brighter moments last sea-
son. He's out for the season due to
an anterior cruciate ligament tear
sustained in practice Saturday, Aug.
8.
Ticket prices for games have
droppedwith the household names,
falling from $210 for a 2008 season
ticket to $150 for 2009, despite the
Knights playing one more game at
home this season.
The Knights will also have to
battle the morale-wrecking deci-
sion by the University of South
Florida to cancel the teams' yearly
matchup, dubbed "The War on f-4."
During their four-year, four-game
rivalry between 2005 and 2008, the
Knights never defeated USF. The
Bulls had indicated that the Knights
didn't offer enough competition for


them to continue their rivalry.
Now the Knights have only one
official rival at all on this season's
schedule - the University of Miami,
with whom the team had signed a
two-year deal beginning last sea-
son. Miami has not indicated that it
will extend that contract.
Last season theKnights lost 20-14
in Miami, but this season they'll play
the Hurricanes in Orlando, where
they have a strong all-time home
record.
In the 2008 season the Knights
finished 4-8, with three of their
losses separated by a touchdown or
less. That was a substantial change
from ;0(07, when the Knights went
10-4, including a seven-game mid-
season winning streak. A big miss-
ing ingredient in last year's team.


was NFL-bound running back Kevin
Smith, whom the team failed to
replace in 2008.
Head Coach George O'Leary
didn't name many names for who
to look for in starring roles on
the Knights' offense this season,
though he said the offensive line
has increased in size and a largely
returning set of quarterbacks, run-
ning backs, tight ends and receivers
have shown more confidence with
more experience from last season.
A likely go-to running back is
Brynn Harvey, a sophomore. His
breakout game last season was at
Marshall, where he carried the ball
33 times for 150 yards, including
a 50-yard breakaway for a touch-
down.


LEARN ABOUT SECURING FLORIDA'S

CLEAN ENERGY FUTURE

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) has announced plans to build an underground natural gas pipeline that may
cross through your county.


The proposed Florida EnergySecure Line

ENERGY SECURITY. The pipeline would generate
an uninterrupted supply of a safe, dependable
and clean energy source - something Floridians
have been demanding - and FPL is committed
to continuing to deliver.

JOBS. At its peak, the pipeline would positively
impact more than 7,500 jobs, including the
creation of approximately 3,500 construction jobs.

TAX REVENUE. The pipeline would generate more
than $400 million in property tax benefits,
Please visit any time during the open house hours
to review the proposed pipeline corridor and
personally speak with members of the FPL project
team about this important initiative for Florida.
