Husband

standoff

RACHEL MURPHY
GUEST REPORTER

A Seminole County woman
was wounded by a gunshot
at her Sanford home July 4
after her estranged husband
broke in and then barri-
caded himself. He was later
found dead.
The Semihole County
Sheriff's Office responded
to the woman's call at 6:30
p.m., after she told police
that the man had tried to
break into her home.
A deputy . found Gary
Adams, 59, attempting to
flee in his car. According to
a report from the Sheriffs
Office, Adams and the offi-
cer exchanged shots in the
driveway after Adams tried
to make a U-turn back into
the Lake Forest subdivision.
Adams then ran toward the
doorway of the home and
fired at his estranged wife.
Adams barricaded him-
self inside of the home,
where SWAT team mem-
bers found him dead in the
garage several hours later,

School Board mulls tax hike


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE
The Seminole County School Board
is eyeing an optional tax that would
bring an extra $7.3 million to the
cash-strapped school system.
The Board voted 4-1 on June 30
to move forward with charging an
extra 25 cents per $1,000 of taxable
value. The decision will not be final-
ized until the budget is approved in


September.
Volusia and Brevard counties are
also moving forward, with the same
tax, while Orange County is not.
The Florida Legislature autho-
rized school districts this year to
levy an additional .25 mills, raising a
$200,000 home's property tax bill by
about $50.
The one-year tax requires a
supermajority vote from the board.


Seminole's vote last week was 4-1 - a
supermajority - with School Board
Member Diane Bauer dissenting.
"I can't raise taxes without voter
approval," Bauer said at the meeting.
Vice Chairwoman Sandy Robinson
said she didn't want to raise taxes
either, but said it's the only way to
maintain quality.

Saving the world over the airwaves


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

It's 8:32 p.m. Saturday and
the sun's about to disappear
beyond the black cloak of
tree line on the west end
of Winter Springs' Central
Winds Park. Nine hundred.
and seven miles away, 60
pounds of metal are rocket-
ing across the dome of the
Earth, northeast-bound in
a hurry, just as J.D. Smith
awaits a date with destiny.
"Any minute now, it'll
start talking," Smith says.
Crouched on a park
bench under an awning,
Smith sits in a gray baseball
cap tracking a ghost on the
horizon. Seconds later, that
speeding hunk of metal
wakes with a kiss from the
setting sun and its haunt-
ing signal says hello. once
more, just as a hint of a grin
crosses Smith's face.
Reaching, for signals in
the sky, Americans by the
tens of thousands took to
the radio airwaves in syn-
chronous Saturday through
Sunday. For 24 hours they
shook hands through the
air, said hello, and a quick
goodbye, all in seconds at a
time as they raced to con-
nect with as many other
radio operators as their dial-
ing fingers could get their
hands on.
By 9 p.m. Saturday, Norm
Lauterette had already been
up for 17 hours, rubbing a
sunburn and looking a bit
worse for the wear.
"My face sure was hot
today," Lauterette said,
packing his car to head
home. He's taking a break,
but for longtime operator
Bob Mahon and a dozen
others in his group, this is
an all-night proposition.
This was all just a test,
but the worst kind. For guys
like Mahon, cooped up


and transmitting for hours
inside a trailer the size of a
large refrigerator, the hypo-
thetical is dead serious. A
disaster has just wiped out
the electrical grid. The cell
phone towers are useless.
That's when the hams take
to the air and save the day,
setting up disaster commu-
nications across the area.
But on the last weekend
of June every year, they go
global, challenging amateur
radio clubs worldwide to
see who's the great commu-
nicator on the airwaves.
Smith was looking a bit
farther, as his fingers clicked
on his laptop keyboard and
spun a radio. dial, and a
robotic satellite antenna in
a golf-cart-sized-trailer spun
its metal booms searching
for a signal. He's only going
to get one chance to say
hello to a once-dead satel-
lite and maybe find some-
body on the other side of
the globe, and that window
is only 12 minutes long.
Mind set in tunnel focus, his
restless eyes kept watching
the skies.
ELO's "Calling America"
could very well be the theme
song playing up the mon-
tage here. Smith's voice is
out in space trying to talk to
someone. On the other end
he hears "five-o calling,"
and he's in business, using
-an ancient solar-powered
satellite as his personal tele-
phone.
Twenty-eight years ago,
Oscar Seven was a dead hunk
of aluminum. But in 2002, it
became something of folk-
lore to some unusual men
and women who pilot the
airwaves across the atmo-
sphere. After being dead
for 21 years, Oscar Seven
squawked back to life, as
a once-dead battery finally
broke its connection, and
its spreading solar wings
were fired up by the sun.

Amateur radio operators tested the worst-case scenario to find who's the best communicator when disaster strikes.

Winter Springs balances budget without layoffs


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE VOICE

A balance scale isn't something fre-
quently seen drawn in icing on top
of a cake, but as a present to Winter
Springs City Manager Kevin Smith
on June 22, it was oddly appropri-
ate. A single word, "awesome," was
written in black icing.
The sweet gift came after Smith
and his team cinched up a $1.7 mil-
lion budget shortfall, finally balanc-
ing the city's fiscal year budget.
"Notice on the cake, the dol-
lar signs are in black, not red,"
Commissioner Joanne Krebs said,


smiling.
In the past, black ink was used to
denote positive holdings, while red
was negative.
The budget deficit was originally
$1.5 million. It increased slightly, to
$1.7 million, after revised property-
tax values came in. By the third
budget workshop the hole shrunk
to $576,000, and Smith had warned
that the only ways out were to raise
taxes, dip into the city's reserve
fund or cut personnel costs.
"The, general fund is balanced
with increase in millage and no
layoffs to employees," Smith


announced at the June 22 City
Commission meeting.
But the city is not out of the
woods yet. Nov. 1 begins a new bud-
get year, and the city will be tack-
ling the effects of farther-slipping
property values. Taxable values in
the city were down almost 10 per-
cent, and it's projected that those
numbers will not level out before
next year.
"It's important to begin position-
ing ourselves to weather the storm
as it approaches again next year,"
he said.
The city still needs to look at


reorganization - outsourcing and
eliminating positions - because
personnel accounts for more than
half of the city's budget, he said.
A draft budget was delivered
to the City Commission on July 1.
Budget workshops for the next fis-
cal year will begin this summer.
Smith received a standing ova-
tion from the crowd and the mem-
bers on the dais. He accepted the
accolade, but gave them a reality
check, of sorts:
"Let's eat it before something
changes."

Pets left behind in bad economy


Shelter sees increased dropoffs,

adoptions as families struggle

RACHEL MURPHY
GUEST ; 'l';F,


In a year's time, the
Seminole County Animal
Shelter euthanized more
than half of the number of
animals that came through
its doors - and animal ser-
vices workers say it's a result
of a rising population and a
falling economy.
From June 2008 until
May 2009, the shelter, locat-
ed in Sanford, saw its ani-
mal intake increase to more
than 8,000. Of that number,
5,208 were euthanized.
"Likewise, around that
time, we began to notice an
increase in the number of
adoptions and individuals
surrendering their animals,"
Seminole County Animal
Services Manager Morgan
Woodward said.
Vanessa Bouffard, spokes-
woman for Orange County
Animal Services, said the
animal intake number
goes up from year to year
as the population increases,
and she also attributes the
increase to the economic
downturn.
"We are definitely see-
ing an increase in animals,"
Bouffard said.
The Orange County
Animal Shelter, which was
designed to house as many
as 250 animals, has seen
a 12 percent increase in
owner surrenders since July
2008, according to a report
provided by Bouffard.
John Panetti, a resident


of Orange County who
adopted several cats from
the shelter, said the center's
burgeoningpopulation con-
cerns him. He fears many
cats and dogs are being
turned in because many
people have lost their jobs
and can no longer afford
them.
"I have never seen so
many animals here," said
Panetti, 67, who was there
with his wife and two grand-
children. "The economic
times - people aren't work-
ing, and when it comes
down to it, an animal is an
extra," he said.
Sue Hennessey, a 61-year-
old volunteer at the Orange
County shelter, challenged
that perspective. During
this economic downturn,
she said, pets can offer peo-
ple a sense of comfort.
"It is somebody that
doesn't want anything but
love and food," Hennessey
said.
She began volunteering
at the shelter five weeks ago,
after being laid off from her
job.
"They are comforting
because, when you are laid
off, it can be a blow to your
self-esteem," Hennessey
said. "Animals don't want
anything but love and they
can help relieve stress."
She said that the increase
in pets is a day-to-day situa-
tion. During her four-hour

shift two weeks ago, she
adopted out two cats and
four kittens, but during her
next shift did not see any
adopted.
According to the Humane
Society of the United States,
6 million to 8 million dogs
and cats enter shelters each
year, and of those, 3 million
to 4 million are euthanized.
Cathy Hude, a volun-
teer at the SPCA of Central
Florida, said that the No.
1 reason people surrender
their pets is that they are
moving. The second reason
is that they have lost their
home, which she said is a
result of the tough econo-
my.


"They dump them here,"
Hude said. "Foreclosure has
put a lot of pets in here. We
think of them as children,
and people wouldn't just
give up their children."
Beginning in October
2008 and ending March
2009, pet abandonments at
the Orange County shelter
increased 8 percent.
Bouffard strongly advises
people not to abandon their
pets, or even list them on a
Web site such as Craigslist.
"If you can find the ani-
mal a loving home, that is
great," Bouffard said. "But
don't put it up on Craigslist
or give it to a stranger
because you don't know


what could happen to the
animal."
Woodward advises peo-
ple to think "very thorough-
ly about their pets," and said
that the cost of animal care
can be very expensive.
Woodward offers this
advice to people who can
no longer maintain their
pets: "Find a family member
or friend to take the animal,
and if they are unable to
take care of it, bring it to the
SPCA or Animal Services,"
he said. "Don't be ashamed.
We do our best to try and
work with rescue groups to
try and find good homes for
these animals."

Geneva's high-flying parade


"She's a grand old flag, she's
a high flyingflag and forev-
er in peace may she wave."
- George M. Cohan

Geneva's 4th of July cel-
ebration was big, from the
excited crowds lining the
parade route and Geneva's
bright red Fire Engine #42,
to the exhilarating sound
of The Greater Geneva
Grande Award Marching
Band and the enormous
American flag that graced
our village festival.
Presenting the American
colors took on new mean-
ing as the Boy Scouts pulled
the ropes with all their
might, raising our impres-
sive banner into the sum-
mer heat. I understand the
flag came from a defunct
car dealership and found
its way to Geneva through
Boy Scout leader Randy
Deavers.
This flag was the inspira-
tion for the parade theme


"Flags Over Geneva". Near
Memorial Day Geneva
Elementary students and
teachers gathered in a big
field and tightly held their
few inches of the flag with
one goal - keep it straight
and don't let it touch the
ground!
High overhead Rocky
Harrelson piloted the plane
that flew low enough to
photograph the wonder-
ful flag with children and
teachers under and around
it. An amazing effort and
wonderful symbol took on
a life of its own and we sold
the initial supply of T-shirts
designed with the Flags
Over Geneva logo at the
festival.
Another fundraiser
for the Historic Geneva
School was Can of Possum,
inspired by Mal Martin's
song "Five Pounds of
Possum". Cans were flying

Congratulations to all the

those unsung individuals
who worked so hard'build-
ing them after a hard day's
work. Congratulations to
the Geneva River Rats who
won first place float - you
did Geneva proud!
This event is always
full of wonderful details.
Like the noises in the hour
before the parade: horses
arrive whinnying in their
trailers, motorcycle engines
purring down Main Street,
dogs barking, babies and
toddlers babbling in their
strollers, helicopters and
Ultralites buzzing over-
head, people meeting,
greeting and chatting on
cell phones, bold beeps
from the Model T brigade,
wagon wheels scratching
along the asphalt laden
with folding chairs, ice
chests, bags of hard candy
and cases of water.
People sheltered their
dogs from the summer
heat, big and tiny ones,
and three-legged too,
many with bows, ribbons,
and patriotic collars and
leashes. So many crazy


hats, colorful face painting,
red, white and blue cloth-
ing and all kinds of shoes
- sparkly flip-flops, red
boots, star-studded sandals
and sneakers. We love how
folks decorated the nearby
homes with festive red,
white and blue flags and
flowers.
We love singing "All
Hail, Geneva", "The Star
Spangled Banner", and lots
of country songs. We stop
to bow our heads and give
thanks for the blessings
and bounty of our coun-
try. We always appreciate
seeing Brenda Carey and
Mike McLean, our Seminole
County commissioners
riding in the parade; we
cheer wildly for the grand
marshal (Evans Bacon, this
year) and the alumni that
came early for the second
annual photo op at the
Historic Geneva School.
We loved watching kids
play old-fashioned heri-
tage games, vying for those
delicious cakes at the cake-
walk, and riding high along
the shady pony ride trails.
How we embraced our
newest parade entrant, the
BrenDon Squares square-
dancers! They dressed
up and walked the route,
music filling the air, and

what we have done and
continue to be a high-per-
forming district," Robinson
said, "and legislators have
not made that easy." -
Member Sylvia Pond said
she may change her mind
depending on what her con-
stituents have to say.
Superintendent Bill
Vogel said the net increase
is not .25 mills because the
Legislature eliminated the
supplemental discretionary
millage, worth .198 mills.
The actual increase is .052,
or $9.10 a year for a $200,000
home.
"The millage taken away
was ignored in all of the dis-
cussions concerning mill-
age levies," Finance Director
John Pavelchak said.
Orange County leaders
decided last month not to
pursue the tax. Instead the


Board will scale back its
schoolrenovationsprogram
funded by a half-penny
sales tax approved by vot-
ers in 2002, Superintendent
Ron Blocker said at a meet-
ing,June 15.
Because the money
comes from sales tax, the
funding pool has taken a
hit. The building program,
which is slated to be com-
pleted over 10 years, will
have an estimated $1.5 bil-
lion less than anticipated,
staff told the Board.
The optional .25 mills
tax would have raised $24
million over two years,
but it was voted down 4-3.
Member Christine Moore
said she won't do the
Legislature's "dirty work."
"That's nickels and
dimes," said board mem-
ber Kat Gordon. "It's a stu-
pid way to fund education,
waiting on a referendum."


(11years old), who is a national level
competitor getting ready to compete
in the Jr. Olympics in Austin, Texas,
stated "It felt great to help out."

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation
and MDC Inc. are giving $1 million
to the state of Florida and Valencia
Community College to expand
groundbreaking remedial education
programs.


Every year, roughly 375,000 Florida
degree-seeking students attend
a local community college, with
nearly 40 percent of them having to
take remedial classes to build basic
academic skills.
The grants announced, will support
Achieving the Dream: Community
Colleges Count, a multi-year national
initiative that is aiming to dramatically
boost college graduation rates among


low-income students and students of
color.
So far, 14 other colleges and four
states received similar grants from
the Gates Foundation to build upon
the promising work developed under

VIelery and a tale of three cities --


Celery and a tale of three cities


Did you all have a happy
and great Fourth of July
weekend? I found it near
impossible to attend all the
tri-cities activities.
I joined the crowd with
my friends to attend Flags
over Geneva. A great home-
town parade started at
10:30 a.m. and with, say,
78-plus floats including
horses, golf carts, antique
cars and trucks and of
course the throwing of
candies, which delighted
old and young along the
crowded streets.
We then ventured to the
Geneva community cen-
ter for some activities. My
friend Gerry watched her
great granddaughter take
a pony ride, and Judy and
I tried our luck at the cake
walk - no winner there.
It was a lot of fun to see
people enjoying themselves
during the log-sawing con-
test, face painting and the
meeting and greeting of
old friends. I forgot to say
the food stand was doing a
great business. Tell me, have
you had a "cowboy sundae"
lately? Sounds like some-
thing really cool and entic-


ing; well we were a wee bit
disappointed. I wouldn't
use the word sundae to
advertise this beverage.
The cowboy sundae is
lemonade in a cup, Which
includes a real lemon cored
out in the middle so that a
peppermint stick goes in
the lemon and you suck the
lemonade out through the
peppermint stick. Maybe
next time they are offering
that treat. It certainly was a
worthwhile morning. ,
My family stopped by
later in the day and off we
went to Winter Springs'
Annual Celebration of
Freedom '09 at Central
Winds Park. The evening
was filled with music, hot-
air balloon rides, games
and a bounce house for
the younger set. The star of
the evening was the fire-
works display. I enjoyed
the food from local ven-
dors in the Winter Springs
Town Center. I would like
to make a comment here:
Geneva and Winter Springs
festivities had free admis-
sion and parking was the
same. I love Oviedo, but
couldn't our city have an


event that doesn't include
admission fees or parking
fees?
Beg pardon, come to the
Great Day in the Country
sponsored by the Oviedo
Woman's Club - that
offers free admission and
has done so for the last 35
years.
I just love "road trips"
with friends, and what bet-
ter time to take a short hop
up the road than now in
summer. Four gals - Linda,
Gerry, Judy and I - popped
up to Sanford to explore,
shop and of course eat. We
did find a few stores,closed
for the 4th, but that didn't
deter us. We also found a
new eatery - Gourmet 2
Go. We seated ourselves
and we looked around the
room and at what great
pictures they had hanging.
One of the gals said, "Janet
there is your picture." I
agreed as it was a huge
picture of a giant celery
stalk. Well, they were right,
at least history-wise, as in
1913 the city of Sanford
was called the Celery City.
Celery was planted, so the
history books say, in 1896
in the Sanford area until
1974 when the main celery
production moved west
to the Zellwood area. Give
us gals a week or two and
there will be another road
trip.
Walking in the mall
the other day, another
store went bye-bye and


then there was-no music.
Well the walkers were not
happy; at least with music
it makes it easier to dodge
the cleanup crew and the
big floor-scrubber machine.
The walkers investigated
and found the mall was get-
ting a new music provider.
So, walkers, we are back
in business and no longer
walking in a tomb.

Out of the ashes, a museum brings Tiffany's work to life


CARMEN CARROQUINO
GUEST REPORTER

Flames licked at what was already
ash on Cold Spring Harbor in 1957,
the aftermath of destruction for
Louis Comfort Tiffany's grandiose
country estate.
The fire burned at Laurelton Hall
for three days - no rain in sight
to extinguish what could not be
replaced - prolonging the destruc-
tion by what seemed like slow-
moving flames.
Charred and shattered pieces of
his craftsmanship would have been
lost beneath the ash and black resi-
due of the Long Island house in ruin
if it were not for Hugh F. McKean
and his wife, Jeannette Genius
McKean, granddaughter of a Winter
Park museum's namesake.
Both walked among the rubble
with preservation in mind to show-
case the works of art from the estate
that was Tiffany's vision come to
life. But most of his vision disap-


peared into clouds of smoke and
ash like the factory chimneys of the
Industrial Revolution of Tiffany's
day.
Jennifer Thalheimer, curator
of the Morse Museum, said that
Laurelton Hall was Tiffany's legacy
and celebrated his love of art in dif-
ferent mediums&
"Tiffany's estate was important
to him and gives a personal depic-
tion of who he was as a man, art-
ist and architect," Thalheimer said.
"His most cherished pieces were
found in his home."
The Laurelton Hall expansion
plans are now featured in the muse-
um along with the exhibit, "The
Virtues of Simplicity: American Arts
and Crafts."
The Virtue of Simplicity exhibit
keeps in tradition with the time
period of the Industrial Revolution,
where Thalheimer says the move-
ment in art was a "reaction" toward
it.
The reaction focused toward the


The Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of
American Art houses the world's most
comprehensive collection of the works
of Louis Comfort Tiffany. It opened at
its current location, 445 North Park
Avenue, in 1995. Call 407-645-5311 or
visit www.morsemuseum.org for more
information.

dependence on machines replacing
man and his intricate and honest
craftsmanship that made no two
pieces alike.
Simple pieces, with simple flat
lines can be found in the intimate
yet spacious exhibit. Plain wood-
en furniture, with simple unifying
detail-work can be found against
ordinary home objects with mono-
chromatic colors, native materi-
als and medieval influences. Going
back to a simpler time where arts


and crafts didn't consist of child's
play, the exhibit contrasts the rustic
and idyllic workmanship against
the mass production age.
Thalheimer says that the
American Arts and Crafts exhibit
really depicts regional identifica-
tion and sensibility of environment
by showing how the movement
occurred in America and Great
Britain.
Besides the Virtues of Simplicity
exhibit, a vignette of glassware from
the late 19th century and early 20th
century is also on display. Encased
in a clear glass room, a dining room
of its time showcases glassware as a
conversation starter and the intri-
cacy of how the wealthy dined on
these dishes.
Catherine Hinman, director of
public affairs and publications, says
the Laurelton Hall exhibit should
hopefully break ground this sum-
mer behind the museum on Canton
Avenue. The exhibit is tentatively
scheduled to open in winter 2011.

MUSEUM 1 Sanford school more popular than ever, but with less money to run it


< continued from the front page

ing economy.
The old Sanford
Grammar School is now
one of Florida's "11 Most
Endangered Historic
Sites"; it was added to the
Florida Trust for Historic
Preservation's list in June.
"It's amazingwhat chang-
es in just a year or two,"
Wiant said. "We were recog-
nized as one of the best just
last year. Now we're one of
the most endangered his-
toric places in the country."
Life within the towering
gothic walls of this educa-
tional edifice seldom takes
on the exciting proportions
of "A Night at the Museum",
but this is no tomb for his-
tory either.
Inside this megalithic red
brick schoolhouse on West
Seventh Street, teachers
such as Wiant have created
a time machine, one that
for all but a few moments a
day is stuck in 1902.

History's players
Equal parts museum direc-
tor, librarian, receptionist
and curator, she seems a
catchall for the horrors of
educational boredom if you
stop paying attention to her
long list of jobs before she
gets started on her real pas-
sion: For 40 minutes at a
time, with a packed house
in front of her, the world of
the turn of the 20th century
is her stage, and she's the
star - teaching the realities
of life without electricity -
in full costume.
There are no dress
rehearsals for these per-


formances. She has to nail
them every time.
Just as she slips into a
frontier housewife's outfit
from the early days of Florida
exploration, she slips into
character. Blending sur-
realism ihto reality as chil-
dren circle around her, she
immerses them in the wild
world of their great grand-
parents' childhood brought
to life before their eyes.
It's easy to get lost in the
moment inside a dimly lit
log shack built inside one of
the classrooms in the muse-
um, barely tall enough for a
jockey to stand up in, with
a wood burning stove and
a butter churn in the cor-
ner. She points to the churn
- "We really use that," she
said.
Almost everything in this
place is completely hands-
on. Fourth-graders on
group field trips are actually
encouraged to pick up the
odd chamber pot or hand-
crank washing machine
and figure out what it's for.
They don cowboy hats and
whoop around the room.
They sit in a dugout canoe
and play Native American
for a few minutes, as the
modern world slips light
years into the distance
behind a closed door.
Themed "classrooms"'
stretch endlessly down long,
broad photograph-lined
wooden corridors, span-
ning from a fully interactive
science room of spinning
electric globes and a dino-
saur fossil discovery pit, to
one of the oldest surviving
classrooms in Florida -
slate chalkboards, ancient


iron-framed desks and
dunce cap included.

A growing following
This level of alternate reality
is drawing quite the crowd
these days - in numbers
Wiant says keep growing,
even as the budget for the
museum shrivels yearly.
On Tuesday afternoons
in the summer, the halls
will be filled. Ten-year-olds
will pour in by the dozens
if not hundreds to take a
peek into a foreign world
full of all the fascination
of a more dangerous time,
rendered in full detail sur-
rounding them. Come fall,
students on field trips will
fill this place three rooms at
a time for three days a week,
four and a half hours a day.
About 6,500 visit each year.
We've already booked
almost the entire school
year already," Wiant said.
"And if a child has come
here once, and their parents
see it,..they want to come
back again and again."

Scrambling for cash
But funding for the muse-
um keeps shrinking, and
taking away some services
with it. Janitors rarely visit
during the summer these
days. Wiant cleans up after
herself until they return for


the school year. She's the
head of the museum, but
she's still only a part-time
employee. Most staffers are
unpaid volunteers.
"They're lifesavers," she
said. "If it weren't for them, I
don't know what we'd do."
She needs as much help
as she can to keep things
running inside this place.
But outside, the wear and
tear of 100 years in the
hot Florida sun has taken
its toll. Mortar between
bricks has slowly eroded.
Rain-permeated walls that
ncJd patching drip down to
floors below.
Inside, absent the money
for some teaching tools,
Wiant has had to improvise
or do without. In a class-
room lined with photo-
graphs of each President of
the United States ofAmerica,
George W. Bush and Barack
Obama are conspicuously
missing. Not enough money,
she said.
"Most of the money we
need is for restoring this
place," she said. "The staff
budget is almost nothing."
And what little money
remains continues to dis-
appear, as squeezed county
funding strangles the edu-
cational system. Not that
the School Board hasn't
been-creative with budget-
ing. To supplement some


of the lost funding, they've
upped the entry price per
student from $3 to $ 5.
S'eminole County Schools
Superintendent Bill Vogel is
grasping for money from
bigger coffers on the state
and national level that he's
hoping won't be empty, but
that money is an "if', not a
"when".
"We're doing everything
we can right now," Vogel
said. "We're applying for"
historic preservation grants
and state funding, but there
are no guarantees."
For now, one more year
is guaranteed, but the future
will require more creativity
to ensure the museum's sur-
vival, he said.
"We're trying to find
money wherever we can,"
he said. "We'll gladly accept
any donations. We're even
trying to partner with other
museums to keep them all
open."
Until .then, creative
teachers such as Wiant still
have their stage, and the
children have their place to
learn about an old Florida
that may slowly be slipping
away.
"We still have this coming
year," she said, a bit of opti-
mism lifting her voice. "But
next year, who knows."

four aesthetically eclec-
tic vestiges of at least two
music eras are lounging
around the last empty low-
slung chairs by the back
door. It was around 9:30 by
the time they'd slowly saun-
tered to this out-of-the-way
perch, and in a few minutes
they'll blend musical shock
and awe into eventual audi-
ence acceptance as they
jam up tunes nobody's ever
heard of, but can't help but


be infected by.
That's because the quar-
tet of Corn Farmer Shamus
just jams until it works,
with such disorganized yet
melodic fluidity that you'd
think they were all in their
own little worlds as drum-
mer Ben Browne bon-
gos his way across Central
Africa and guitarist Michell
Thomas picks out two parts
California hippie jam and
one part Southern banjo


rock. In a few minutes they'll
all sync right back together
again, building to a frenzied
crescendo of strumming
strings, pounding beat and
a roar of applause.
By then Martin is smil-
ing, because he knows he's
got a winner.
"It's all about the music,"
Martin said. "But if we bring
a few new customers in,
that's good too."

Save Our Libraries!

Publicly owned libraries provide free access to information for all. As there is
a link between knowledge and thoughtful decisions, the continuation of our
democracy is dependant upon an educated citizenry. In spite of this, Seminole
County Government has posted a request for proposals (an
RFP) to outsource the management of the library system.


They say this will save the county money, but at what
cost to us, the citizens?
* The company currently under consideration is
from out of state and a large portion of our tax
dollars will not stay in Seminole County.
* There will be a loss of private personal records that
were entrusted to the library.


* There will be a loss of jobs, library services and
programming.
* There will be a loss of citizen input and community support.

A library is one of the most vital services offered in a democracy. Please
make your voice heard by contacting your county commissioner (http://www.
seminolecountyfl.gov/bcc/districts.asp) and congressional representatives. Let
them know you want to keep your Library YOUR Library.

The Sanford River Rats are closing in on the league leader this week, after a string of wins and a 7-2 record in the last nine games. They're less than three games away from the DeLand Bulldogs as of this week.
ISAAC BABCOCK Despite the seeming slugfest in Tuesday night they hammered . as of Tuesday, streaking forward
THE VOICE that game, the scoring didn't start Clermont with a 9-5 win. In that while the DeLand Suns fizzled.


The Rats have been scampering
around the bases in the last week,
winning seven of their last nine
games as they close in on the final
weeks of the season.
They beat the league-leading
DeLand Suns in a 6-0 shutout shock-
er Monday night, and they did it on
DeLand's home field. It was the only
game all season that the Suns had
allowed themselves to be shut out.


until the fourth inning, and it got
started slowly, with a small rally
leading to two runs by the Rats: The
runs just kept piling on after that for
the Rats, as the Suns' usually scorch-
ing bats went cold. Rats starter Trey
Ferrano went the distance with a
complete game on only four hits.
The Rats' defense took care of the
rest, as Ferrano frequently let fly
balls and grounders keep the field-
ers.busy.


game the Rats jumped out early,
cranking out five runs in the third
inning on scrappy small ball plays
that kept runners circling the bases.
They followed that with a three-run
fourth and cruised to the ninth.
All of this has added up to
Sanford's closest peek at the top
of the Florida Collegiate Summer
League ladder since the first week
of the season.
They were only 2 1/2 games out


The Rats won't get a direct shot
at DeLand until Friday, July 17, but
they get plenty of action this week-
end. Starting at 7 p.m. Friday night
they will be at Clermont. At 7 p.m.
Saturday they travel to Leesburg.
Then at 5 p.m. Sunday they return
home against Winter Park before
taking four days off.


Central Florida Kraze looking for a miracle


ISAAC BABCOCK
. THE VOICE

It would take an incredible
finish for Central Florida's
highest level soccer team
to make it to the playoffs
with only four games left,
but that doesn't mean the
Kraze aren't trying.
"We're on a roll right
now," Coach Joe Avallone
said. "We're in position to be
in the top three."
Playing in the rural north-
west corner of Seminole
County, the Central Florida
Kraze has been courting a


following of rabid soccer
fans willing to make the
trip.
And with a 2-2-2 record
at home, the Kraze have def-
initely kept an air of unpre-
dictability hovering over
their home, FSA stadium.
Now 12 games into the
season, the Kraze are look-
ing for a bit of redemption
on an early season of offen-
sive misfires that kept them
in the '' column.
"We've-had a lot of inju-
ries, but they're coming
back now," Avallone said.
"I've got the guys playing


for each other."
Heading into the final
four, games of play, they're
4-6-2, winning four out of
their last five games with
14 points on their United
Soccer Leagues' Premiere
Development League lad-
der. That puts them 14
points behind the first place
Bradenton Academics, who
have been their perennial
rival and one of their clos-
est competitors in seasons
past.
But it's the third place
New Orleans Jesters who
the Kraze have their sights


on if any miracle is to come
of this season. The odds are
long, but if the Kraze can
win their next four games
straight, they could have a
ticket to the playoffs come
season's end.
To get there, the Kraze
will have to beat two teams
they've lost to this season,
and one they've already
defeated.
Thursday night they
battled the Bradenton
Academics at home, with
hopes of revenge after three
shutout losses this season.
At 7 p.m. this Saturday


at home the Kraze face a
Panama City Pirates team
that's narrowly ahead of
them in the standings, but
that beat them 2-1 early on
in the season. After that,
it's a harrowing road trip
around the South to finish
the final two games of the
season.
"We've gotta beat
Bradenton," Avallone said.
"That would be huge. We're
playing the two toughest
teams in the division to fin-
ish the season, and we have
to win."

Letters to


Don't believe the lies


Everyone agrees that our
health care system is broken,
but instead of creating a solu-
tion, some Republicans -
and lobbyists - are too busy
spreading lies about President
Obama's proposed health care
plan.
Lie #1: Health reform will
hurt people who have insur-
ance. Fact: Any reform that
addresses costs will help those
with insurance, since premi-
ums are growing four times
faster than wages. Forty-six
million Americans are unin-
sured - and just because you
have health insurance today
doesn't mean you'll have it
tomorrow.
Lie #2: Our aging popula-
tion is to blame for rising
health care costs. Fact: The
elderly account for just 0.4
percent of the future growth
of health care costs. The real
expense comes from our fee-
for-service payment system
that's based on quantity, not
quality, of care:.
Lie #3: Reforming our
health care system will cost
too much. Fact: Yes, there's a
bill to pay. But doing nothing
will cost us more today but


will save us a fortune in the
future. If we spend $600 bil-
lion fixing health care now, we
could save about $3 trillion by
2020.
Lie #4: My personal access
to quality health care will
decline. Fact: Access doesn't
mean quality. A recent
Dartmouth College study
found that patients who
receive more care may actually
fare worse, since.our current
system is based on how many
patients a doctor can see, not
the quality of care for each
visit.
Lie #5: I won't be able
to visit my favorite doctor.
Fact: Eighteen organiza-
tions ranging from AARP to
the Consumers Union sup-
port reforming our system
by maintaining better CER,
or Comparative Effectiveness
Research. Far from limiting
choices, the president's plan
will help doctors to make bet-
ter choices with fewer errors.
Lie #6: The uninsured have
access to health care now -
the emergency room. Fact:
While hospital ERs will treat
any patient regardless of their
ability to pay, emergency


rooms are not designed for
preventative care. By the time
that many of the 46 million
uninsured Americans go to the
ER for a problem, it's usually
an advanced medical condi-
tion that costs more to treat
and with lesser outcomes.
Lie #7: We'll have social-
ized health care. Fact: This is
the whopper lie that lobbyists
trotted out when President
Clinton tried to reform health
care in the 1990s. President
Obama's plan is based upon
our current system and creat-
ing a public-private plan that
would let people keep their
own health care if they like, or
choose from the same excel-
lent health care enjoyed by
members of Congress.
President Obama's plan
upholds three basic principles
that benefit everyone: ensure
quality, affordable care for
every American; reduce costs
by improving efficiency and
investing in preventative care;
and guarantee every American
the right to choose their plan
and doctor, including a public
insurance option.
