Dog park

plans get

groomed,

revisited

JENNY ANDREASSON
THE`'L 1-

A dog park has been on Win-
ter Springs' to-do list since
2001. At Monday's City Com-
mission meeting, plans for
the four-legged playground
started to move forward.
Funding for another proj-
ect, Magnolia Park, could
be compromised if the city
doesn't start construction
on the dog park in the fall.
The Florida Department
of Environmental Protec-
tion awarded the city a
$135,000 matching grant
last July for a permanent
dog park. Because construc-
tion hasn't begun, the city
has been found in "noncom-
pliance" and will become
ineligible for further grants
after Sept. 10, according to
a June 15 letter from DEP's
Diane Langston.
Parks and Recreation
Director Chuck Pula told
the City Commission that
he needs its approval imme-
diately to make the deadline

City leaders say cooperation is the key


JENNY ANDREASSON
THE '.'
When Richard Gestrich started as
Oviedo city manager more than a
year ago he felt some friction between
Oviedo and its sister city Winter Springs.
That same tension existed between the
cities and the chamber of commerce
they share.
"There was a misplaced Oviedo-
versus-Winter Springs rivalry," Gestrich
said Friday, July 10, at the University
Corridor Update.
The central theme at the event,
which was hosted by the Orlando
Business Journal and the Metro Orlando
Economic Development Commission,
was the need to pursue cooperation
among municipalities, chambers of
commerce and residents to ensure East
Orlando's prosperity, as the medical


city and high-tech corridors blossom.
Gestrich has already made some
headway in Seminole County. He estab-
lished communication between the
cities and the Oviedo-Winter Springs
Regional Chamber of Commerce,
while bringing the nearby University of
Central Florida into the mix.
"At a recent meeting, I heard the
mayor of Winter Springs introduce him-
self as the mayor of Oviedo Springs," he
said.
Working together on a regular basis,
he said, can save taxpayers money,
allow the cities to run more efficiently,
and make the area as a whole more
attractive to developers and businesses
looking to relocate.
When Gestrich was manager of a
Pennsylvania township, four of the

area's cities shared one compre-
hensive plan. That allowed them to
attract major corporation Lockheed
Martin. Although the company set
up in just one of the cities, all four
reaped the economic benefits.
In August, Gestrich will meet
with Winter Springs City Manager
Kevin Smith to discuss 15 possible
opportunities for joint programs
between the cities. The cities' elect-
ed bodies held a joint meeting on
May 15 and plan to hold others in
the future.
Orange County and Seminole
County cities are working together
on plans for high-tech corridors in
each county - Innovation Way and
Seminole Way, respectively.
Attracting the right kind of peo-
ple - not companies - to these
corridors is crucial, said Jim Spaeth,
CFO of Sonata Health Care, a panel
member with Gestrich at the event.


He said the corridor has already
achieved so much in the realm of
simulation and life sciences. The
zip codes with the highest con-
centration of graduate degrees are
32828 - the Avalon Park area -
and 32765 - Oviedo.
"It's about chasing people, peo-
ple do the innovation," Spaeth said.
Getting those people here will
have to be a group effort, with the
chambers of commerce leading the
charge, said Oviedo-Winters Springs
Chamber President Paul Partyka.
He said there are already good
pulls, such as UCF, Seminole
Community College and Full Sail -
which is "the second, maybe first,
largest area of simulation in the
country."
The medical city rising at Lake
Nona, which includes the UCF
School of Medicine, won't hurt the
Metro Orlando economy either.
But the news surrounding the
university corridor wasn't all posi-


tive. Gestrich talked about the strug-
gling Oviedo Marketplace, whose
owner, General Growth Properties,
is going through Ch. 11 bankruptcy
protection. Many storefronts con-
tinue to sit empty, while other ten-
ants grapple to survive.
But it's not just a problem for
the city of Oviedo. "If the mall fails,
it will have a regional impact," he
said.
The city and the chamber have
a big plan - improve signage vis-
ibility along State Road 434, replace
some of the mall parking with res-
taurants, turn some storefronts into
office space, and bring in another
big company as an anchor, he said.
"The mall is hurting in Oviedo,"
he said. "We are trying to work with
management to encourage busi-
ness activity... Certain legal actions
have limited development at the
mall site."
The city is still looking for the
right developer to take on its Oviedo


on the Park project. The mixed-
use town center was to be built by
Broad Street Partners, whose man-
aging partner, Steve Walsh, died
of an apparent suicide last year.
Numerous monetary claims have
been filed against the company,
including one from Oviedo itself.
"We're looking for a new devel-
oper who will retain the intent and
purpose to create a town center
and form an identity for the city as
well," Gestrich said. The city turned
down one developer's proposal
already because it didn't do that, he
added.
Also in attendance were District
33 State Rep. Sandy Adams and
Rick Walsh, chairman of the UCF
Board of Trustees. Orlando Business
Journal Editor Cindy Barth mod-
erated the discussion held at the
Holiday Inn UCF.


DOG PARK I Commission could formally approve city dog park in August

work and public meetings
involved.
"Do we have time to
hammer this out in budget
workshops or is this a fire
drill?" Commissioner Gary
Bonner asked.
"It's pretty close to a fire
drill," Pula responded.
But City Manager Kevin
Smith recommended that
the dog park be discussed
along with the other capi-
tal expenditure projects at
a budget workshop.
"I'm uncomfortable
bringing it up on a piece-
meal basis," Smith said.
Commissioner Sally
McGinnis urged the com-
missioners to move forward
"in all fairness to Chuck,"
but she did not receive
support. The item was dis-
cussed at the July 23 budget
workshop, after presstime,
and could get preliminary
approval on July 27, with a
final vote in August.
There is already a tem-
porary dog park in Central
Winds Park, but it sits on


the future site of the Win-
ter Springs water reclama-
tion plant, which could
start construction as soon
as spring 2010, Pula said.
The temporary park,
which opened in 2004, cost
$15,000 to build and $20,000
annually to maintain. It sees
about 500 human visitors
per week, according to a
count done by city staff.
The Friends of Leash
Optional Parks donated
$3,000 toward the construc-
tion of the temporary park,
and it donated $4,000 and
a live oak tree toward the
permanent park.
The city budgeted
$125,000 in its general fund
for the park in the current
budget year, but did not
move forward on it because
of financial concerns.
Overall cost has come
down by half. On Monday,
Pula presented the Commis-
sion with a $100,000 budget
- the city would pay half of
that, with the grant picking
up the rest.
The plan hasn't changed
much. It still includes fenc-


ing, an asphalt walking trail,
dog playground structures,
water fountains and mis-
ters, shade trees, signs, and
picnic tables.
The operating costs
would remain the same
as the temporary park -
$20,000 a year. The city
could end up charging a fee
or ask FLOP to raise money
to offset that annual cost.
"I have been reading with
interest what has been hap-
pening in Winter Park with
the dog park," Bonner said.
The Winter Park City
Commission in a split vote
Monday decided not to
charge residents and non-
residents an annual fee to
use Fleet Peoples Park.
Pula said he didn't know
if a fee structure would
succeed in Winter Springs
either. "It's another option,"
he said.
For now the clock ticks
on the grant money. A
site survey has to be done,
then in addition to win-
ning approval from the City
Commission, Pula must get
the green light from the


Planning and Zoning Com-
mittee.
"I'll do anything I can to
get the grant application


out," he said, "no matter
how long you all wait on
this."

Parade winners make Geneva proud


SBy Karen McEnany-Phillips


I wanted to share with you
some of the wonderful
winners from our Geneva
4th of July parade and to
make note of these special
achievements: First our two
amazing Grand Marshals
Reverend Eddie Banks from
Oak Grove M.B. Church
and Mr. Evans Bacon, who
did Geneva proud by rep-
resenting the very best of
us. These two men are true
pillars of our community.
They have led us in prayer
in joy and sorrow over
many years and remind us
of our connection to God,
family and community
by their wise and humble
example. I do not exagger-
ate that these two men are
truly beloved members of
Geneva's family.
Judging the float com-
petition was challenging -


we had some great ones as
always - but first place for
best decorated and themed
float went to Kelly Perko's
"Geneva River Rats" who
spelled out "Geneva" in
those huge letters and cov-
ered the float with so many
flags, not to mention all
the kids who were having
a ball. It was a beauty for
sure. We say well-deserved
and enjoy your $200 prize!
Second place float prize
went to the Geneva Cub
Scouts in care of Michael
Krummenacker, who I was
told worked very, very hard
on the float into the wee
hours the night before.
I know his Scouts were
thrilled to collect the $150
prize - well done!
A huge thank you to
Jesse Harrelson who
organized all the float


entrants, which is an
enormous task... do I hear
the Tournament of Roses
parade calling for you?
Other winners includ-
ed best decorated small
vehicle to Parish Blake
who took home $50.and
most unusual children's
entry $50 to Tom Naffke.
We always love the bike
brigade and a big congrats
to Zoe Stapleton who won
$50 for best decorated bike.
What would the parade
be without our fantastic
four-legged friends - all
the horses - and we thank
Marie and Chuck Tatman
as always for organizing
all the equestrian entries
in the parade. Marie shares
that there were 22 horses
in the parade with 12
horses registered for judg-
ing. Best depiction of the
theme (Flags Over Geneva)
was Firecracker, ridden by
Michelle Tournour. Best
groomed horse was Molly,
alternately ridden down
the parade route by Steve
Kuhn and Rachel and Dan
Roberson. Finally best
patriotic decorated horse
was Razzle Dazzle, ridden


by Dalton Harnch.
I'd like to also share part
of the remarks of Geneva
Citizens Association
President Richard Creedon
who quoted two great
Americans who continue
to give us inspiration when
we need it most.
"First, Vince Lombardi,
the famed coach of the
Green Bay Packers, said,
'The challenge for every
organization is to build
a feeling of oneness, of
dependence on another.
The question is usually
not how well each person
works, but how well they
work together.' This is the
secret that describes the
Village of Geneva."
Creedon continued,
"Second as to the day we
celebrate I would like
to quote Samuel Adams,
a cousin of John, and a
leader in the American
Revolution, since his words
from 1777 should have
a resonance in today's
America.
"'Through the darkness
which shrouds our pros-
pects, the ark of safely is
visible. We have proclaimed


to the world our determi-
nation to die freemen, rath-
er than to live as slaves. We
have appealed to heaven
for the justice of our cause,
and in heaven we have
placed our trust. Numerous
have been the manifesta-
tions of God's providence
in sustaining us. In the
glooihy period of adversity,
we had had our cloud by
day and our pillar of fire
by night. Good tidings will
soon arrive."
In our day and age when
we process life in sound
bytes and quickly move on
the next "big thing", it's
nice to savor those memo-
ries that sustain us.

Campaign trail heats up in Oviedo


It's that time again -
according to my calendar
- when several candidates
are beginning to campaign
for the offices of mayor and
Council seat 1, which are
currently held by Mayor
Mary Lou Andrews and
Councilman Steve Henken.
At the moment Henken
seems to be unopposed.
The story is a wee bit dif-
ferent for the mayor's posi-
tion. Looks like three can-
didates have thrown their
hats into the ring. We will
all just keep watching the
news for further develop-
ments.
All this lovely rain has
really made the grass grow
and it has flooded the
Miami curb'areas in Mead
Manor. The other day I was
getting my mail when a
neighbor walking her dog
said it was nice of me to
provide drinking water for
her pooch. I said I aim to
please. The water overflow-
ing the curb is groundwater


and sometimes each year it
gets very deep and floods
the street corner. Anybody
for swimming lessons? Saw
a public works truck out
in front of my house and I
popped out to investigate.
I said this happens every
year around this time. Are
you all going to improve
the drainage in the area?
We're not worried. It's just
groundwater and it will dry
up when the rainy season
stops. I do however know
that several residents did
call the city and that was
why the public works per-
son was on my street.
A movie for the evening:
On Friday, July 24, UCF will

students are the ones the school needs to
focus its attention on.
"We're disappointed, of course," she said.
"I know Winter Springs High is an out-
standing school but it got hit with lower
quartile that didn't make the grades."
School grades are based primarily on
FCAT scores. There is a lower quartile pen-
alty that drew down the grades of the dis-
trict's high schools, said Walt Griffin, execu-
tive director for Seminole County Schools
Secondary Education.
"Just in this district, six out of nine high
schools dropped because of the penalty,"
Griffin said. "The ninth grade reading score
stayed the same but the 10th grade reading
appeared to do the damage."
Griffin said despite massive cuts in the
district's budget, the money used to sup-
port the lower quartile students has stayed
constant.
Shaffner said even more attention needs
to be devoted to these struggling teenag-
ers. "If students in the lower quartile didn't
make the gains, then we concentrate on


those kids as much as we should... we need
to be reaching out to every child," she said.
Mayor Bush asked Shaffner if rezoning
of the school district could have contribut-
ed to the slip. He said students in neighbor-
hoods in the eastern part of Winter Springs
are now sent to Oviedo High School.
But Shaffner said the rezoning isn't a
factor because it was done when Hagerty
opened in 2005. "It would have shown up
before now," she said.
But while the state rated Winter Springs
High a C, Newsweek listed it - and seven
other county high schools - in the top 5
percent of high schools in the country based
on its successes in Advanced Placement and
International Baccalaureate programs.
"Nationally, Winter Springs looks really
good," Griffin said.

ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE

Down a back alley around
a corner of burnt red brick
walls, a peppy staccato
drumbeat creeps out into
the atmosphere of a warm
Friday night, pulling curious
passers-by toward a dizzy
underworld that perished
nearly a century ago.
The gravity grows stron-
ger as the music gets louder.
About 9 p.m. a skinny kid
in black wingtip shoes can't
resist any longer. He checks
his gold pocket watch at
the darkened doorway and
steps into a room full of half-
dressy misfits who spin him
through the dancing days of
prohibition's seedy past.
"Once you start doing
this, it's hard to stop," said
Tom Carroll, barely out of
his teens and dressed in a
striped polo, chinos and
Chuck Taylors and standing
at the door to another world.
Outside it's just another
hot night at the University
of Central Florida. Inside,
they're partying like it's
1929.
Blasting out through
MP3s and digital ampli-
fiers, jazz-infused bongo
beats and massive brass
bands drunk on mint juleps
and high on the rush of
America's longest-running
underground soiree tear a
musical swath through the
night, luring eager revelers
into dance-fueled delirium
on a well-worn glossy floor.
This is swing dancing's
golden era, stuck on repeat
- and minus the gin.
If you haven't heard of
America's first love affair
with countercultural subver-
sion, check Benny Goodman
on Wikipedia. Booze got
banned, but gangsters and
music kept the party going.
Peppy beats, tooting horns
and thick strung upright


PHmu!U ut IAAn UanUI
The University of Central Florida's Swing Knights hit the dance floor on Wednesday and Friday nights to teach guests young and old the art of swing dancing.


bass set a young generation
to a jitterbugging rhythm
as America got a taste of a
hedonistic good life before
the Great Depression stole
it all away.
Fast-forward about 65
years and everything old is
new again. Obscure bands
like The Cherry Poppin'
Daddies, The Brian Setzer
Orchestra and The Big Bad
Voodoo Band leapt from
the woodwork in the mid-
1990s, hit the charts and
fired up a swing dance res-
urrection, prying it from the
shadows and into the lime-
light. Comatose for decades,
swing suddenly hit the big
time somewhere between
Nirvana and the Spice Girls.


"It's always been there,"
longtime swinger Hurley
Francois said. "But when
the revival happened, it was
like a catapult."
Swing found a new fan
club, just as America's wal-
lets swelled and the spirit of
the '20s roared back to life.
The fervor that drove the
resurrection as far as the big
screen in "Swingers" and hit
dance clubs in every corner
of America sizzled for half a
decade.
That's when Kim
Ranachowski, a pretty twen-
tysomething in short brown
hair, tight blue T-shirt and
bluer jeans, got started.
"I always wanted to do
this," she said. "When I first


went out there, I said'I don't
know how.' It didn't mat-
ter. That first night, I was
hooked."
Ten years later, she still
is, twirling across a dance
floor as her feet skip twice
to every twist of her hips
moving in and out of a spot-
lit circle on the floor. That
kind of passion flits around
the room with all the fire
of a 300 beat-per-minute
Lindy Hop.
The swing era is still alive
in Orlando, and its heart
beats inside the UCF Swing
Knights. The growing club
has taken an eccentric affin-
ity for all the good things to
come from the days when
Al Capone ruled the speak-


easies, and keeps the dance
floor warm until the early
morning.
Inside the walls of
Education Complex room
174, austere, white-tile ceil-
ings and mirrored walls
house a backroom counter-
cultural epicenter turned
80 years forward in time.
The wood floor still lets
chromed shoes jump and
jive, and the music is as
upbeat and infectious as it
was days before Wall Street
came crashing down.
On that constantly
vibrating floor, two pairs of
fleet feet wrapped in match-
ing white sneakers bounce

Pros at UCF's organic farm dig up ga

Workshop attendees got a lesson on organic gardening from the UCF Environmental Initiative
and gardeners from the half-acre organic farm on campus. The concept's popularity is growing.


Just after 10 a.m. the heat is already
blazing down on Hank Harding as he
carries a cross of bamboo on his back,
walking a steady path through dirt
toward the rising sun. Along his foot-
steps in the soil, a kaleidoscopic cornu-
copia of edible produce springs from
beneath his well-worn work boots.
It's going to be a long day on the
University of Central Florida's organic
farm, but also a learning experience
for dozens of would-be horticultural-
ists descending on this secret garden
as the temperature ascends toward 90
degrees on this Friday morning.
Leading the group, Tina Richards
looks dressed as a tour guide; a tall,
skinny brunette wearing khakis and a
welcoming smile among a throng of
volunteers cutting away at hardened


trdening tips
earth with garden hoes and pickaxes.
"These are the type of people who
don't mind getting their hands dirty,"
she said. "We're teaching them to do
this all themselves."
They're learning how to tend a gar-
den the natural way, with a minimum of
pesticides and with the goal of produc-
ing the healthiest vegetables possible.
She's pushing for a fully organic seal of
approval for this half-acre garden that
only started in February.
Where she stands right now was bar-
ren land at the start of the year.
"It was like a dirt parking lot," she
said.
Then potting soil and organic com-
post came pouring in by the truckload.

SWING I Dancers fan the flame of a fad that died in the '20s, but roared back


< continued from page A5
back and forth in perfect
synchronous as "Sing Sing
Sing" builds to a frenzy and
threatens to envelop the
room. Two young danc-
ers, each wearing the same
loose camel khakis and
white Ts, mirror each other
in fast-kicking double-time
rhythm, readying for a com-
ing frenzy.
Suddenly he's grasping
her hands and flinging her
airborne in an impromptu
acrobatic ballet that sends
her feet into orbit toward
the ceiling. Time moves
slowly for just a moment


before she touches down.
Back on planet Earth, she
steps back in time like she'd
never left the ground.
Five years ago Francois,
in his trademark newsboy
cap, was spinning around
on this same dance floor,
shaking out a jittery, mes-
merizing Charleston that
would eventually win him
a national title - and he
won't tell you about that
unless you ask. He's just here
for the dancing, and for him
that never stops.
"He's here every week,"
Carroll said. "We've got a lot
of regulars who never miss


a dance."
Outside these walls,
they're spreading the gospel
of swing wherever someone
will listen and shake it.
Funny thing: it's working.
The misfit swing kids have
successfully turned some of
the downtown dance clubs
into swing clubs, danc-
ing onto the floor to the
rhythm of swing, and hop-
ing others will join in. It's
changed the atmosphere
inside clubs instantly, if only
for a few moments until the
big band music runs dry or
the energy stalls. The con-
fused bystanders who get


curious enough often find
themselves taking the ride
back to UCF the next Friday
night. And they're packing
the dance hall.
"This is actually a slow
night," Carroll said, looking
over his shoulder and into a
room of constantly moving
bodies nearing 100 strong.
A rival dance in Tampa
stole away half the crowd


for a special engagement.
"On any other Friday night
there might be 200 people
in here."
But even if there were
only 10, these swingers
don't seem to care. As long
as the music is playing, the
dancing never dies.
"It becomes about love,"
Carroll said. "I'll be doing
this for a lifetime."

In their 11th year, Kraze log first losing season


ISAAC BABCOCK
THE VOICE
The end of the season has
gone topsy-turvy for the
Central Florida Kraze, as the
area's most prominent soc-
cer team has struggled to
come up with the miracle
they needed to make it to
the postseason.
"It was a tough season,"
Coach Joe Avallone said.
"But we'll rebound from it,
that's for sure."
A hopeful 4-0 end-of-sea-
son fantasy run turned into


a 0-3-1 reality in the final
games. With only 1 point
to show for their final two
weekends on the field --
when they were hoping for
9 to 12 - the Kraze aren't
just looking up in the United
Soccer Leagues' Premiere
Development League ladder
- they've been overtaken.
With a 5-1 loss to the
Baton Rouge Capitals fol-
lowed by a 3-0 shutout by
the Mississippi Brilla, the
Kraze have watched in hor-
ror as they've been passed
up by the Capitals in the


Southeast Division stand-
ings.
That overtaking has put
them into sixth place at a
point in the season when
Avallone said he'd hoped
to be in third, though he'd
acknowledged that a plague
of injuries and the loss of
starting goalkeeper Devela
Gorrick would make it dif-
ficult. By the numbers it was
possible, but they would've
had to beat some of the best
teams in the division. All
three of the teams who beat
them in the final two weeks


are ahead of them on the
ladder.
And it's going to stay
that way, as the Kraze have
exhausted their regular sea-
son schedule in search of
that one final victory. Their
record of 4-9-3 is the worst
in the team's history, though
their 15 points are still far
more than many other
teams in the league. On a
perennially successful team
like the Kraze, the final sea-
son tally is an unusual one.
They've never had a losing
season.


"We'll take one losing sea-
son in the last 11," Avallone
said.
And in a tough division
where one team managed
to go undefeated and still
only ranked third place at
the end of the season, the
Kraze aren't too far down
the ladder.
"We expected it'd be
hard," Avallone said. "But
we have a lot of young play-
ers. We'll rebound."
